    We all saw how Obama and the Dims targeted conservatives using the IRS. Nothing was done other than an apology and back to business as usual, however, Trump seems to want to play the same games

    Don't know if you knew this but the so-called "Church" of scientology when confronted with a billion dollar tax bill by the IRS attacked them in return, individual offices, individual tax agents with lawsuit after lawsuit, 2400 of them or more. A Scientology lawyer had a meeting with the IRS top dog, saying if Scientology gets church tax status (no tax), all those lawsuits go away. Funny thing, Scientology got church tax status and those 2400 law suits magically disappeared.

    Scientology is a disgusting 'religion' doing nothing but bilking the members out of hundreds of thousands of dollars for NOTHING at the end of all their BS auditing. That is only the beginning of the crap they pull.

    Crap and bull is what the US federal government is all about.

    All that matters is obtaining power so that you are not on the wrong end of their lawlessness.

    So you don't care that a dispicable organization like Scientology got tax free status as a direct result of filing over 2000 lawsuits against the IRS?

    Did you know they pay their workers 40 cents an hour, some even less, and they have extreme predudice against apostates. Camera crews at your house every day for years, stalking those people who leave the 'church', putting some members in an internal jail infested with bugs and worse, beatings by the supreme leader himself. None of that means anything to you?

    It's not that I don't care, it's that this is but one of a million examples.

    The only reason you care about the Scientologists not paying taxes is you hate them.

    The extremely biased right-wing American Whodey prefers to ignore this:

    "In 1974, a Bill of Impeachment against President Richard Nixon was approved by the House Judiciary Committee
    that included charges that his administration attempted to use the IRS in a discriminatory manner:
    RESOLVED, That Richard M. Nixon, President of the United States, is impeached for
    high crimes and misdemeanors...Using the powers of the office of President of the United States,
    Richard M. Nixon, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of
    President of the United States...He has, acting personally and through his subordinates
    and agents, endeavored to... cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens,
    *income tax audits or other income tax investigations* to be initiated or conducted in a
    discriminatory manner."

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientology_in_Germany

    "The Church of Scientology has encountered particular antagonism from the German press
    and government and occupies a precarious legal, social and cultural position in Germany.

    As of 2017 German courts have so far not resolved whether to accord Scientology the legal status
    of a religious or worldview community, and different courts have reached contradictory conclusions.[3]
    The German domestic intelligence service has monitored the organization's activities.
    The German government does not recognize Scientology as a religion; rather, it views it
    as an abusive business masquerading as a religion and believes that it pursues political
    goals that conflict with the values enshrined in the German constitution."
