Lois Lerner Refused Tax Exempt Status to Hundreds of Conservative Groups – But Granted Status to an Underage Prostitution Ring

The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal included:

However, Lerner did grant tax exempt status to the Royal Order of Jesters, a prostitution ring and classified their headquarters as a museum.

This reads like a James O’Keefe scandal.
Sandy Frost reported:

This seemingly boring property tax story began when attorney Ron Pruitt filed nonprofit incorporation documents with Texas’ Secretary of State on 7/11/2003. These documents were then filed with the IRS, where Lois Lerner, the former Director of Exempt Organization Rulings and Agreements, decided the Royal Order of Jesters deserved 501(c)(3) status as a charity and, on July 24, 2004, approved their application that classified their new headquarters as a “museum.” The Jesters then filed as a foreign corporation business entity with the Secretary of State of Indiana to qualify their new Indianapolis headquarters for property tax exemption. Additionally, the Jesters were afforded other nonprofit benefits including reduced postal rates, possible exemption from state income, sales, and employment taxes, tax-deductible contributions and exemption from Federal income tax. According to About.com, “Tax-exempt means that a nonprofit (1) does not pay taxes to the federal government and (2) that its donors can take a tax deduction for their donations to the organization.”

When the Jester news broke four years ago, we learned from the Buffalo News that a New York state Supreme Court judge resigned after the FBI caught him and two other Jesters in a human trafficking sting. These included his law clerk and a retired Lockport police captain. A retired Erie County Sheriff pleaded guilty last April to driving a limo of prostitutes from the Buffalo New York airport to a national Jester convention in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada in April, 2005 and not reporting the felony to authorities. The Judge testified in his plea agreement that he worked with national officials to make sure prostitutes got to a national Jester meeting in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The same plea agreement discloses that the Jesters are under federal investigation for sex trafficking, prostitution and child sex tourism.

The other story I broke four years ago reported that a group of 19 Jesters were on a witness list and were expected to testify about their first hand knowledge of sex with minor girls while on a fishing trip to Brazil. The list included national Jester director Samuel “Scutter” Newton.

The former fishing tour operator who organized the Jester fishing trip is currently being prosecuted by Brazilian authorities for trafficking underage girls into prostitution for his North American fishing clients. He is also under criminal investigation by a grand jury in Miami for child sex tourism and has been sued by four Brazilian women who claim he trafficked them into prostitution while minors.

The depositions of five Brazilian girls describe how one was left pregnant at age 13 after one such fishing trip. Fishing guides took pictures of Jesters having sex with minor girls and surrendered them to the Brazilian Federal Police. The fishing guides testified in the same case that the Jesters asked to be called “Masons” and for girls over 13. It is not yet known if these Jesters are among the twenty fishing customers currently under investigation by the Brazilian Senate.

Here is how the feds describe the Jesters in the Sheriff’s plea agreement.

“The Royal Order of Jesters (“ROJ”) is a worldwide fraternal organization whose membership is limited to individuals invited to join by other members. The motto of the ROJ is ‘mirth is king.’ The ROJ has local chapters or ‘courts.’ On occasion, a local court or group of local courts in the same geographical area sponsor social gatherings known as ‘books of the play’ or ‘books.’ The sponsoring courts organize the ‘books’ and arrange for food, lodging, and entertainment at the ‘books.’ The ROJ also sponsors a yearly national ‘book,’ the equivalent of a national convention. In April, 2005, the Jester’s national book was held in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. As set forth below, a typical feature of a ‘book of the play’ is the presence of prostitutes (‘Jester Girls’) who engage in commercial sex acts with members of the ROJ. Arrangements for the prostitutes are generally made by the organizer of the ‘books,’ or the region hosting the national ‘book.’ On occasion, individual Jesters make arrangements to transport prostitutes to ‘books.’”

After Stirring Up Racial Hatred – Obama Tells #Ferguson to “Keep Protests Peaceful”

In August Barack Obama sent Attorney General Eric Holder to St. Louis to pressure local officials in the Michael Brown case.

While in Ferguson Holder commiserated with protesters about racist police officers. The Attorney General later launched an civil rights investigation into the Ferguson Police Department.

Barack Obama reportedly met with Ferguson protest leaders the day after his midterm shellacking this month.

Now Barack Obama is urging Ferguson protesters not to get violent.
KSDK reported:

President Barack Obama says his message to Ferguson, Missouri, as it awaits a grand jury’s decision in this summer’s fatal police shooting of an unarmed black man is to keep protests peaceful.

Obama says everyone has the right to express their views and to peacefully assemble to protest actions they think are unjust.

But he says using any event as an excuse for violence is contrary to the rule of law.

Obama commented in an interview with ABC News that’s scheduled to air on Sunday. The network released his comment about Ferguson on Friday night.

A grand jury is deciding whether to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the Aug. 9 shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown. The incident sparked days of sometimes violent protests in the St. Louis suburb.

He’s about three months too late.

Koskinen Lied – 30,000 Lois Lerner Emails Recovered by IRS Inspector General

Lois Lerner

The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involved:

IRS Commissioner John Koskinentestified before the House Oversight and Government Reform on March 26, 2014. Koskinen told Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) during the hearing that Loise Lerner’s emails were archived and it would take a long time to retrieve them.

In June the IRS told Congress Lois Lerner’s emails were lost in a computer crash.

There were audible gasps in the room on June 20,2014, when IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told Congress that Lerner’s hard drive was tossed out. Koskinen testified before the House Ways and Means Committee on the IRS conservative targeting scandal.

Via OutNumbered:

But Lois Lerner’s emails were not lost as was reported. All of her emails were backed up by the federal government.
And 30,000 of her emails have been recovered.
FOX News reported:

Federal investigators have told Congress that they have recovered data that may include lost emails from one of the pivotal figures in the controversy over the Internal Revenue Service’s treatment of tea party groups, congressional aides said Friday.

Frederick Hill, a spokesman for Republicans who run the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said the investigators said at a staff briefing Friday that they have recovered up to 30,000 emails to and from Lois Lerner.

A statement from Democrats and Republicans on the Senate Finance Committee was more measured. It said the investigators have recovered data that may include Lerner emails.

The investigators were from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, which audits the IRS. A spokeswoman for the inspector general, Karen Kraushaar, declined to comment, saying the investigation was continuing.

The investigators ignited a political firestorm in May 2013 with a report saying that IRS agents had given exceptionally close scrutiny to tea party and other conservative groups that applied for tax-exempt status.

Black Caucus Leader Warns St. Louis County Jury to Indict Officer Darren Wilson (Video)

Mike Brown was shot dead in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9, 2014.

Michael Brown robbed a local Ferguson convenience store shortly before his death. Then Brown smashed police officer Darren Wilson in the face, severely injuring Wilson, before he was shot dead.

The race hustlers are finalizing their action plans in the event that Officer Darren Wilson is not indicted.

Rep. G. K. Butterfield, the new leader of the Congressional Black Caucus, called on the grand jury to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown or there will be pushback.
Via GotNews:

“I was a judge for fifteen years as you know and I presided over many grand juries. So I would certainly hope that the grand jury in Ferguson, Missouri will find that there is sufficient evidence to conclude that a crime probably was committed. To lay out that crime and to let a jury of twelve in Missouri decide the guilt or innocence of the police officer. But if they turn their back on justice I’m fearful that there will be pushback from those who are concerned about it. And, I’m one of those who’s concerned about it. There will be pushback. We’ll be asking questions. I would hope that any demonstrations that take place in Ferguson, Missouri would be peaceful and nonviolent. And I would hope that law enforcement would not inflame citizens who might want to express their First Amendment right.”

Venezuelan Thugs Break Into Blogger’s Home – Threaten to Kill Him & His Young Children

Alek Boyd is a Venezuelan blogger who reports on the corruption and devastation of the Marxist leadership in his home country. Currently, Alek lives in London far away from the Chavistas.

This past week Chavista thugs broke into his London flat and threatened to kill him and his young children.
Security cameras captured their photos.
chavista agents

Nate Thayer reported this week on the break-in and threats.

Alek Boyd is one of the most skilled and courageous journalists I have ever met.

This week, agents of powerful and corrupt Venezuelan government forces threatened to kill him and his young children.

Threatening journalists, and their young children, for writing the truth is against the rules.

Boyd lives in exile in London. This week, they broke into his house and stole his computers.

Alek Boyd is the real deal.

For years, Boyd has waged a lonely battle as an investigative journalist micro focused on the entrenched political and moneyed powers in Caracas to expose their blatant corrupt hold on power in the pursuit of personal enrichment.

Alek Boyd has not blinked, for years, in the face of intimidation and death threats by corrupt and powerful Venezuelan thugs loyal to the Chavista government who have tried to silence him.
And nobody is paying him for his work.

Now that ante has been upped.

This week, they threatened to kill his children. This week, government agents broke into his house in London, where he lives in exile, stole his computers, and left pictures of his children as a warning.
