Video: IRS harassing tea party groups, demanding names of members
Though I moved out of California in 2007—and though I never lived in his district—I have been on Rep. Tom McClintock’s mailing list for years, and I am happy to be so. McClintock is one of the finest congressmen of whom I have ever been aware.
In the video below, he begins, as he often does, with a very brief but poignant reminder of American history and our Founding principles. He then relates that to the matter at hand: the intentional intimidation and threatening of tea parties by the IRS, in ways that other groups have never been treated. He directly calls out the Obama administration for using the IRS as a weapon against their political opponents.
At his website, there is also a petition on the subject.
Ardently devoted to the cause of human freedom, he has worked at the confluence of politics, activism, and public policy for more than a decade. He co-wrote a ten-part series of video shorts on economics, and has film credits as a researcher on 11 political documentaries, including Citizens United's notorious film on Hillary Clinton that became the subject of a landmark Supreme Court decision. He is the founder of several activist endeavors, including AnyStreet.org (now a part of Western Free Press) and Liberatchik.com. He is currently the managing editor of and principal contributor to WesternFreePress.com.
