Four Northern Indiana Patriots’ made the 12 hour trip to Washington DC and attended the Tea Party Patriots rally along with approximately 12,000 other patriots. The rally centered on the IRS targeting of groups solely on the basis of their belief in a Constitutional government. The speakers for the three hour plus rally varied from elected officials who expressed outrage to Glenn Beck to individual citizens who faced harassment not only from the IRS but also government groups such as the FBI, Homeland Security and OSHA.

On Tuesday May 21, patriots from across the area participated in the nationwide protest of the IRS. The individuals at the protest took two hours out of their day to have their voices heard. Of the approximate 55 patriots who were at the Merrillville office some used vacation time in order to make the protest, others came after working a 12 hour shift, a couple stopped in briefly during their lunch hour and others rescheduled life events all because each one understood how the IRS actions threatened every Americans first amendment rights.
The Tea Party Patriots website has crashed, organizers say, due to the high volume of interest in the nationwide protests planned for over 100 Internal Revenue Offices across the nation.
The website crashed after Rush Limbaugh highlighted the grassroots organization as a place to get information about the protests.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is arguably the most powerful and feared agency within the United States government. They alone have the ability to presume a company, organization or individual guilty of crime, making the grieved party responsible for asserting and proving innocence.
Starting in March of 2011 news reports surfaced of the IRS using intimidation factors on Tea Party, Patriot and 912 Project groups as they sought non-profit status as a 501(c)3 and 4. Although alternative media sources and those plugged in at a national level of Patriot groups knew of the intimidation before the 2011 news reports.
The current administration in Washington ignored the IRS abuse of power and chose to label the abusive actions of the IRS against the citizens of the country as merely an overactive conspiracy theory mindset. The federal government is trying to sell the mantra to the citizens that the groups affected by the actions of the IRS are just making this all up.
A conspiracy theory is not a conspiracy theory if it is proven to be true.

Update From Tea Party of Hancock County:
Senate Bills 224 and 225 have been scheduled for a hearing on Monday morning in the Indiana House of Representatives. Calls and emails are need to members of the committee immediately. Contact information at the bottom.
No matter how much some desire to control delegates and an Article V convention, experts say it cannot be done outside of the convention itself. If these bills are not killed many will have a false sense of security regarding con-cons and likely steam roll ahead to gut the U.S. Constitution.
The recent filibuster by Senator Rand Paul should uplift the spirits of every patriot. Unlike some previous filibusters which centered on reading documents like the Constitution or Declaration of Independence, the entire 13 hours of the Senator’s Paul filibuster centered on the rights of Americans and sought clarification from the administration on previously ambiguous statements regarding drone attacks on Americans on US soil.
“I will speak as long as it takes until the alarm is sounded from coast to coast that the Constitution is important.”
– Senator Rand Paul, 3/6/13
NIPats stands firm in our conviction that there should be NO ambiguity to the unabridged unalienable rights we possess as Americans. Thank you Senator Paul. After the 13 hour filibuster, Attorney General Holder was compelled to clarify the administration’s position on strikes against US citizens.
From AG Holder, “It has come to my attention that you have now asked an additional question: ‘Does the President have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil.’ The answer to that question is no.”
