Has been targeted by the IRS joining us now we got spotty mail news.
-- the Tea Party news network whose parent company Tea Party dot net.
It's try to get tax exempt status and run into problems how long has that struggled on on what's the status right now thanks for joining us -- -- thank you Dennis.
This process been going on -- basically 2010 there were looking at.
A little more than three years we've been going there and yes the -- -- dot net has yet to be granted Bob -- before status.
But I think it's real interesting that the president sat there and said the word independent that the IRS is independent.
Of the White House kind of washing his hands of any trouble that this might be that might go to them.
Well and ran out of we know the IRS answers to the department of treasury.
And -- that of the department that is headed by -- tax cheat Geithner that he appointed so it's not so independent as he kept saying in that press conference.
Yet how many hoops -- your group had to jump through to try to get.
IRS approval when you're asked to provide that a list of all donors even though that's supposed to do that.
Yes we've gone through three rounds the -- part -- -- has gone through three rounds of questions.
First round we expect we went 501 -- force to be legitimate battle and -- fours.
But the second round where they asked for of the donors and their contact information.
As well and a lot of the event that they got in the past the more importantly The Who what where when and how detailed and guest -- details of any future events.
But the first red flagged and then just recently within the past year we were asked to provide every email marketing email as well as.
A social FaceBook Twitter or YouTube -- that we had done.
Since the very beginning three and a half years of emails then if you know that you don't want to use it that would take a couple -- probably different -- themselves.

One quarter of them that it's a -- -- because of the Tea Party -- patriot because they're even going after Glenn Beck's group as well.
But then the IRS official in charge of this department that clears these requests so they'll have nothing politically motivated here -- how believable do you think that is.
-- -- -- point about this is not a right or left issue.
This is about people's rights and states' rights and legal citizens' rights and that's why every American needs to stay informed and be very scared of this issue.
This is why the Tea Party was formed because we cannot trust.
Our government and this is the perfect example of -- why I don't care why why was it that just these words were targeted.
Why weren't they home while -- than heterosexual or homosexual or the word progressive targeted.
-- the three words they picked Tea Party burger and patriot three conservative sounding words for sure.
Yeah and they want -- still more even people who are upset with big government don't even have to be Republican to be upset with -- big government.
Do you think this goes up higher isn't entirely possible that the White House had no idea and the people or just doing what they thought the White House would like without the White House knowing.
Well I guess it's just totally plausible the White House did know about -- -- fast at various.
-- -- lender either it's amazing how the White House continues to stay completely clean of every scandal that hits them.
That being said if this is just a bunch of minions in Cincinnati that started this.
That I would say there's some real issues that we have with the central office in Washington DC the IRS office.
Because that they're letting little people around the country make comment to make decisions like this.
It obviously shows the it efficiency of our taxpayer dollars -- use.
All right thanks very much for being with us today Scotty now -- and -- you'll make some progress in getting that clearance for a tax exempt status.
