It’s common knowledge Barack Obama weaponized the Internal Revenue Service, as well as the rest of the federal government. So fully did he fill federal agencies with radical, ruthless leftists, it was unnecessary for Mr. Obama, or any of his chief toadies, to directly tell any of them what he wanted done. They all think alike; they all have the same goals; they all have the same disdain, even hatred, for most Americans. They knew what to do without being told; they know what to do without being told even though Mr. Obama has left to run his shadow government. In fact, they are an integral part of that shadow government, dedicated to increasing government power—Democrat power—while destroying any and everyone that might possibly oppose them, the most currently dangerous of whom is President Donald Trump.
It’s also common knowledge the IRS was caught in many of its illegal activities, the vile Lois Lerner being the most obvious example. Lerner, among others, conspired to deny conservative and Christian organizations the tax-exempt status to which they were entitled, taking years to grant what should have taken days or weeks at most. At the time, this was a conscious tactic calculated to deny those groups the ability to raise money to keep them from having any effect on Barack Obama’s second coronation. In that, they were infamously successful, and to this date, Though Lerner retired and went as underground as possible, some groups have not been granted tax-exempt status.
The arrogant and utterly corrupt John Koskinen, IRS Commissioner, presided over the illegal destruction of countless IRS records under court order, effectively derailing prosecutions of his criminal underlings. For some reason, President Trump has not yet fired Koskinen.
I have often observed, writing about various topics, that evil exists, that even if we are not interested in evil, evil is interested in us. It is always abroad, slyly watching and waiting its chance. Because of this, evil does not often willingly reveal its alliances. Upon occasion, however, evil’s fallible human allies slip up and declare their master, as Fox News reports:
While some conservative groups may wait years for tax-exempt status, the IRS swiftly gave approval for a Satanic cult that sponsored an ‘After School Satan Club,’ according to records obtained by a watchdog group.
Documents posted by the conservative government watchdog group Judicial Watch late last week show the nonprofit called Reason Alliance, based in Somerville, Mass., operates in the state of Washington as the Satanic Temple of Seattle.
The group appeared to have the goal of establishing Satan clubs in public schools throughout Washington in districts, which had similar clubs operated by a Christian-based group. Documents obtained by Judicial Watch included the process of establishing an after-school Satan club at Point Defiance Elementary School in Tacoma.
Many schools allow no religiously affiliated groups, student led or otherwise, to meet on school grounds. Generally speaking, if a school allows one sect to use school facilities, it is obligated to allow all, including Satanists.
Records obtained from the Treasury Department showed that the Satanic cult applied for tax-exempt status on Oct. 21, 2014, and received it on Oct. 31, 2014.
The director of the Seattle temple, Lilith X. Starr, established the Point Defiance Elementary Satanic club with the purpose of ‘character development,’ records obtained by Judicial Watch show, adding that adult instructors are vetted by the Satanic Temple’s ‘Executive Ministry.’
Children ages 5-12 who attend the club would develop basic critical reasoning, character qualities, problem solving and creative expression, according to the Satanic Temple filings included in the documents.
It takes little imagination to understand what kind of “character” Satanists will be developing in school children, nor is the kind of “creative expression” in which they’ll be engaging a mystery. But perhaps school officials didn’t know exactly what they were allowing into their schools? Perhaps the IRS had no idea?
The records also show that Starr told Tacoma School District Superintendent Carla Santorno that the clubs are led by ‘caring Satanists,’ and that the effort to establish after-school Satan clubs in Tacoma schools is in direct response to the Christian-based Good News Clubs operating in campuses throughout the district. That admission ignited concern among some Tacoma district officials, records obtained by Judicial Watch show.
In one email exchange in February 2017, Tacoma Schools official Andrea O’Brien-Henley sends colleague Paul Koch a citation from the Satanic Temple’s website, noting that the temple only wants to establish after-school Satan clubs in school districts with Christian Good News Clubs.
O’Brien Henley says it is ‘odd’ the Satanic Temple only targets schools that have Good News Clubs.
I’m afraid there’s nothing at all odd about it. Satanists exist to enslave and destroy humanity, to lie to men about the designs of Satan, and to attack the followers of Christ wherever and whenever possible. It would seem that the Tacoma School District has at least some sympathetic to the Satanists:
In a separate email exchange from February, the executive director of communications for the Tacoma School District, Dan Voelpel, expressed concern to colleagues that people would confuse the school district’s message of tolerance toward the Satan Club with tolerance toward alleged “hate-related activities around the country in the wake of the presidential election.
Oh no. We wouldn’t want anyone to think the school district supports those evil Trump supporters running wild around the nation! Sure, it has great tolerance for Satanists, but not for Americans that didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton.
Treasury Department files obtained by Judicial Watch last week show Reason Alliance in Somerville, Mass., was given nonprofit status within 10 days of its application in October 2014. The group operates the Satanic Temple out of Washington state and planned an “After School Satan Club” initiative in 2016.
‘While the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) makes conservative groups wait years for tax-exempt status an ‘After School Satan Club‘ launched to hinder Christian-based counterparts got its nonprofit ranking in just ten days,’ Judicial Watch said in a statement released March 16. ‘The classification is offered to charitable, religious and educational organizations that operate as nonprofits. Under the Obama administration, IRS political appointees illegally targeted conservative groups, either making them wait up to seven years for tax-exempt status or denying their application altogether.’ [skip]
‘The fact that a satanic cult got [its application] granted in a week when it took conservative groups seven years to get approved should be pretty illustrative of a deeper problem here,’ Brian Morgenstern, vice president of the Manhattan Republican Party, told Fox News on Monday.
That any school would, for any reason, allow a “Satan Club” access to their students is also illustrative of a deeper problem. Satanists are not merely another benign religious group. They represent the author of all lies and evil in the world. It appears they’ve also admitted their short-term goals—apart from the destruction of the souls of children, that is:
The group’s idea for ‘After School Satan Club’ was billed as an alternative to an evangelical Christian group’s after-school program known as the Good News Club.
‘If Good News Clubs would operate in churches rather than public schools, that need would disappear. But our point is that if you let one religion into the public schools, you have to let others, otherwise, it’s an establishment of religion,” the group told The Washington Post on July 30, 2016. ‘We’ve moved well beyond being a simple political ploy and into being a very sincere movement that seeks to separate religion from superstition.
Obviously, this is at least in part a calculated attempt to force the schools to deny access to Christian groups, which would be necessary if a Satanic group was also denied access. The fact that, several weeks after establishing the Satan Club, no students had registered for it might be suggestive to that end. Actually denying access to all religious groups would hardly be a bad thing. There is nothing stopping any child from participating in any Christian group at a church, private home, or any other facility not relating to schools. Considering that the goals of any Satanic organization are far from benign, and are steeped in the evil of their master, denying all religious groups access would surely be the lesser of evils.
However, this is not just a religious issue. Remember, gentle readers, that it was the Democrats that formally, and gleefully, kicked God off their national party platform. A symbolic act, to be sure, but it speaks to a depravity of the intellect and the soul.
And now we know the IRS, already corrupt and determined to harm the American public it is supposed to serve, has taken the final step beyond mere corruption, and has formally allied itself with Satan. Given the circumstances, what other conclusion might reasonably be drawn? Such people are more than arrogant enough to imagine there are no consequences to such alliances.
President Trump can’t fire Koskinen, and drain that swamp soon, or completely enough.
