The Price of Telling The Truth…. An Abusive IRS Audit


   In July of 2009, I was invited to be the keynote speaker at a Congressional Dinner at The Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. .  The topic of the presentation focused on The Power of Prevention and it’s critical role in health care reform.  In the question and answer period, The Congressmen asked for a review of the two phase legislation known as Obama Care. It was defined as two phase due to the fact that half of Obama Care was hidden in the Stimulus Bill ( Phase 1…. passed in February 2009 ) …. the other half was the Health Care Bill ( Phase 2…. passed in March 2010 ). 
At the conclusion of my presentation to members of Congress and their staffs I was asked the question….. ” When I am asked by the press what is the one word to describe Obama Care what do I say?”  My answer was NOT pretty…. but it was truthful.  Based on the facts that any provider who does not follow the government protocol for treatment can be fined tens of thousands of dollars on the first offense and on a second offense could pull jail time…. plus…. the fact that the public would be fined and penalized for not signing up….. plus…. the fact that Obama Care would be implemented and overseen by The IRS….. my answer was based on an approach my Mom, the History teacher, taught me about decades earlier. ” Authoritarian Nationalism that penalizes and punishes anyone and everyone who opposes the state  = Fascism ” My answer to the Congressman….. “The one word is Fascism “.    
Let’s now fast forward to June of 2013….. following my Congressional presentation and then having been interviewed and given dozens of presentations on the hazards of Obama Care and what is needed for true health care reform, as well as hosting The Operation Freedom Radio Show  since 2010, the letter we received from The IRS  on June 13th, 2013, unfortunately, confirmed my diagnosis 4 years earlier that the current administration worships at the alter of Fascism.  
The past 9 months dealing with The IRS has been “enlightening” to be diplomatic and to be blunt…. they are the modern day Gestapo of a criminal syndicate and the syndicate’s current puppet….. Obama. After over 9 months and thousands of dollars in accountant and legal fees it is over from the IRS’s standpoint.  And the public wonders why physicians are retiring and closing their practices so they do not have to deal with The IRS who will administer Obama Care ???
It became obvious from the outset of “the inquisition”, when the auditor was asked why we were being audited and her answer was… ” It starts with the radio show.”, we knew this was going to get ugly very quickly.  I am sure it was pure coincidence that the radio show started in 2010 and that was the first year the audit would focus on. She then asked for our returns from not only 2010, but also 2011 and 2012….. our accountant asked….. “why do you need their returns they have sent them to you every year on time?” Her answer: ” We have a problem with our file system,  just resend them.” Which then lead to our accountant to ask….” how can you ask for an audit without having seen the returns ? ” Her answer: ” just resend the returns.” 
 From the outset, It became obvious that the audit was politically motivated and would be based on harassment and abuse. It also became obvious their goal was to shut down” my public voice “, to deny my Freedom of Speech and  to imprison both Lib and me on unreported income issues. The good news is they found zero….. zero unreported income….. for all three years.  When they realized the ” Go to jail…. go directly to jail card ” could not be played they then launched on the harassment approach.
There is a laundry list of what they tried to pull over the past 9 months to harass us but this will give you an indication of how desperate they became. They demanded all receipts from my speaking related travels in which I was not reimbursed.  Receipts that we had previously given them…. nothing better than bureaucrats wasting your time in duplicating what you had already provided. We provided the receipts in great detail to their chagrin.
 They then wanted programs from the events over the past 3 years to prove that I actually spoke at the events. Luckily for us…. bad for the fascists… I had saved them.  ( I did withhold one set of programs due to the nature of the entire conference. I spoke on health care but a number of other speakers listed were and are active in the intelligence and military communities and I did not want to compromise their safety by turning documents over to an agency that has a track record of compromising the safety and security of Americans who The IRS disagrees with.  We did  however provide a letter from the conference director of my topic of presentation) Then The IRS stated just because I was on the program did not mean I actually spoke at any of the events.… they then wanted letters from the Conference  organizers to prove that I had spoken at all of the events. We then  provided notes I had saved with the redacted names and redacted e-mail addresses from the organizers who had thanked me for my presentations and confirmed the dates and locations.…. that really upset the fascists. But they were not done…. they then  asked for  lists of people who attended  my presentations on health care reform …… We refused .  They failed again…. they were provided zero names. 
 They then launched on several other fronts such as to deny all business expenses and most charitable contributions….. they have failed miserably on that front as well. We will contest the few they summarily dismissed despite clear documentation of the deductions. We are now discussing with our legal counsel and accountants about the most effective means to flip the tables on the Gestapo….. and they will be flipped. The team we have assembled is second to none in the art of “what goes around…. comes around.”  The IRS is of the belief that the filthy taxpayer, as they see ALL of us, has no recourse against the Goliath of The IRS.  I was not named David for nothing.  
What also became clear during the past 9 months was the disdain the IRS and the Obama Administration has for any and all charitable organizations. They see charities as infringing upon their “turf.” It did not take a rocket scientist to realize they intend to harass taxpayers who donate to charitable organizations and the charitable organizations themselves.  To them, it is NOT about helping others ….. it is about them being able to control others through government  purse strings. It became clear…. they see charitable organizations are their competition.
 When all is said and done with this “experience” I am thankful. I am thankful for a great and supportive family, friends, great accountants and legal counsel that were there to get us to the winners circle.  In particular I am thankful to our accountants Don Madhaven and Steve Janulius…. our legal counsel Steve Grob…… Fred Calderone for his steadfast support and counsel…. our close friends Patti, Duane, Amanda and Tim Schroeder ( Amanda gave me some of the wisest insight… ” The reason they are doing this to you is because you are  right…. they are wrong and they can’t fight you on what you have exposed with Obama Care…. they fear you and the truth.” )…. my immediate bosses at work Cathy, Karen & Donna…. Thayrone and Linda Hughes at WAAM Talk 1600…..  all of the folks that work for the charities that we support who had to document and re-document our gifts to their organizations…... and of course Libby, Allison and Katie who were on the frontline of the War. 
In the end it came down to Faith…. my Faith in God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit…… they were with me every morning when I woke up, all day long and every night when I went to bed…. ” The Lord is my light and my salvation…. whom shall I fear.” 
It is my hope that the fascists who comprise the IRS and their boss…. Obama…. decide to focus on their failed policies and what needs to be done to resurrect Our country from their 5 years of destruction.  As opposed to their current focus, which is to harass and abuse  Patriots that are doing everything in Our power to help EVERY American maintain,enhance and restore Our Freedoms, Liberty and Our country.  I look forward to April 15th.…. nothing better than paying for the bullets that are then fired at every American and Our Freedoms by The IRS and the fascists of the current administration.
