Obama Refuses to Comment on We the People Petiton

Here is the response I received today from the Obama White House regarding 501c Non-Profits illegally participating in political campaigns.



Why We Can't Comment on Your Petition Regarding 501(c) Statuses

Thank you for signing the petition "Enforce the tax code, and strip violating religious institutions of their tax exempt 501(c) status." We appreciate your participation in the We the People platform on WhiteHouse.gov.

The We the People Terms of Participation explain that "the White House may decline to address certain procurement, law enforcement, adjudicatory, or similar matters properly within the jurisdiction of federal departments or agencies, federal courts, or state and local government."

The Internal Revenue Service is charged with enforcing federal tax laws, and in accordance with the Terms of Participation, we cannot comment on the tax enforcement issue raised in this set of petitions. We note that the IRS administers its own procedures for receiving complaints from the public about tax-exempt organizations, and more information about how to pursue that process is available here.

This petition was put forth by a group of concerned citizens who were tired of right wing churches flouting the prohibition on using church donations to finance attack ads and political campaigns. The law says they are prohibited from endorsing a particular party or candidate.

There is however a more import but unmentioned aspect of this, 501c charities are the way both political parties launder billions in campaign contributions. PAC's are 501c's. They do this by claiming they are a public interest group, and that they are just trying to educate the voters. This is how people like the Koch brothers can get around the law and donate $100 million while you are restricted to $2,600.

So again we have another case, in an ever increasing line of people who are above the law under an Obama Presidency. America was supposed to be a land of laws, not men. This is clearly nothing but a distant memory and a cruel hoax on the average person who is ALWAYS subject to the law.
