IRS Tea Party Audits Sparks Outrage, Probes

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York The recent admission by the Internal Revenue Service that it was zeroing in on tax-exempt groups with “Tea Party” or “Patriots” in their name has sparked outrage on all sides of the political spectrum. The IRS has drawn the ire of President Obama, Rep. Peter King, the top Long Island Republican, and Rep. Steve Israel, the Huntington Democrat who heads the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.Any organization granted a tax exemption for “social welfare” activity under Section 501(c)(4) of the tax code can collect unlimited and undisclosed contributions but if the group is spending most of its money on political activity, then it loses its status and has to report how much it got and from whom, according to tax experts.Last Friday, the FBI revealed that the IRS was focusing on conservative groups for further review of their tax-exempt status. News reports first said the targeting was done by IRS agents in the Cincinnati office trying to cope with a flood of applications for 501(c)(4) exemptions. It turned out that on June 29, 2011, Lois Lerner, head of the IRS division overseeing tax-exempt groups, had learned of the targeting and insisted that the search be broadened to all political and lobbying groups, but, according to the New York Times, the IRS branch employees kept it narrow.The revelation provoked Obama to say at a press conference last Friday, “If you’ve got the IRS operating in anything less than a neutral and nonpartisan way, then that is outrageous. It is contrary to our traditions.” He said that “people have to be held accountable, and it’s got to be fixed.”Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that the FBI is “coordinating with the Justice Department to see if any laws were broken in connection with those matters related to the IRS.”On Monday, two Senate committees, both run by Democrats, announced they’d hold investigations while House committees run by Republicans have vowed to do the same.“The IRS’s actions are disgraceful, and [it] attacks the very heart of our democracy,” Rep. Peter King (R-Seaford) said in a statement. “It warrants a full congressional and criminal investigation.”Rep. Steve Israel (D-Huntington) echoed his outrage. “I’m deeply disturbed by reports that the IRS targeted certain groups,” he said in a statement. “I’m eager to review the Inspector General’s report later this week. If some at the IRS took actions that were politically motivated, they must be held accountable, along with those at the highest levels of the agency. We must make sure that the IRS maintains its integrity as an impartial agency.”In the 2012 election, Rep. Tim Bishop (D-Southampton) was in the crosshairs of millions of dollars spent in negative advertising by Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS, a 501(c)(4) tax-exempt group. The advertising never mentioned Bishop’s Republican opponent, Randy Altschuler, but painted the five-term LI congressman as a scoundrel embodying “everything that’s wrong with Washington.”Rather than comment on what it felt like to be outspent by a 501(c)(4), Bishop expressed his concern about the IRS’ apparently politically motivated audits.“I am deeply troubled by reports that some IRS employees applied undue scrutiny to certain groups seeking tax-exempt status,” said Bishop in a statement. “The enforcement authority of the IRS was designed to operate independently of this kind of political pressure. I expect the report to be issued this week by Treasury Department’s Inspector General will be the basis for immediate action and strong, comprehensive measures to ensure fairness and impartiality at the IRS.”John Gomez, who ran against Israel in 2010 on the Republican and Conservative lines, had the full support of Long Island’s Tea Party, he said. But he had an uphill battle trying to level the playing field financially.“Steve Israel was sitting on $4 million—I had $50,000,” Gomez recalled. By the election, he said he’d raised about half a million dollars and had to respond to letters from the Federal Election Commission charging him with campaign fund-raising violations that he later overturned in court. He likens what he went through with the FEC to what Tea Party groups faced with the IRS audits.“Strategically, it’s a way to slow these organizations down,” Gomez says. “You can’t spend time organizing and disseminating information because this is really what your purpose is: to make people aware that the government is out of control.”Steve Flanagan, director of the Conservative Society for Action, one of the first Tea Party groups founded on LI more than four years ago, shared Gomez’s concern. “If any of these allegations are true, we’re talking about a serious abuse of power here,” he said.Before the news broke about the IRS audits, the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, based in Washington, DC, sent out an urgent fund-raising request to its supporters past and present. One recipient was an 89-year-old woman who provided this reporter with her mailing. Among its calls to “provide critical financial and tactical support to principled conservative candidates at every level,” it said: “We can’t stand by and allow Obama, the Democrats and so-called ‘moderate’ Republicans to transform the United States into a weak, dependent, second-rate nation.”From the wording above, it’s hard to say that this group is engaged in purely “social welfare.” But that’s what the tax-exempt battle apparently is about.From a historical perspective, the White House has used the IRS to political ends for decades, starting with President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who employed it against Sen. Huey Long (D-La.) and Rep. Hamilton Fish, a New York congressman. During the Eisenhower administration, the IRS gave the FBI the tax returns of key members of the American Communist Party.President Richard Nixon had the IRS audit muck-raking reporters who were critical of him, such as Newsday’s Bob Greene. And President Ronald Reagan used the IRS to challenge the tax-exempt status of the non-profit Mother Jones magazine, forcing one of the leading left-wing publications in the country to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees to defend itself. It won.last_img read more

NEWS SCAN: H5N1 in Egypt and Hong Kong, anthrax vaccine complaint, meningitis epidemic, MRSA in an elephant

first_imgMar 5, 2009Egypt reports H5N1 in another toddlerEgypt’s health ministry announced yesterday that a 2-year-old boy from Alexandria governorate was hospitalized with an H5N1 avian influenza infection, according to a report posted on Egypt’s Strengthening Avian Influenza Detection and Response (SAIDR) Web site. He became ill on Mar 3 and was admitted the same day to the Alexandria Fever Hospital, where he received oseltamivir (Tamiflu). The ministry said his family had had contact with sick and dead poultry. The case will be listed as Egypt’s 57th if it is confirmed by the World Health Organization (WHO). It is the second H5N1 case in an Egyptian toddler this week.Report says wild birds likely caused Hong Kong outbreakThe source of an H5N1 outbreak at a Hong Kong chicken farm in December 2008, Hong Kong’s first farm outbreak since 2003, was probably wild birds, according to findings released by the Hong Kong Agriculture, Fisheries, and Conservation Department (AFCD) today. Genetic analysis indicated that the H5N1 virus belonged to clade 2.3.4, which is commonly found in southern China. It closely resembled isolates obtained from Hong Kong poultry markets in June 2008 and from a wild bird found in March 2008. Scientists found no mutations that would make the virus more transmissible in mammals, the report said.[Hong Kong AFCD press release]Israel answers soldiers’ complaint about anthrax vaccineThe Israeli government, responding to complaints from two Israeli soldiers, said yesterday it took “full responsibility” for side effects suffered by participants in a trial of two anthrax vaccines from 1998 to 2006, according to a report in the Jerusalem Post. The trial compared Israeli and American vaccines and involved 716 soldiers, 11 of whom, representing both vaccine groups, later required treatment. Two soldiers submitted petitions claiming that the medical monitoring and care of participants were inadequate. The government said all the volunteers were educated about the vaccine in advance and that all who requested medical care received it.Thousands of suspected meningitis cases reported in NigeriaThe Nigerian government reported that the country had 5,323 suspected cases of meningococcal disease with 333 deaths between Jan 1 and Feb 22, the WHO said today. Suspected cases have been reported in 22 of 37 states. The WHO said the International Coordinating Group on Vaccine Provision for Epidemic Meningitis has approved the release of about 1 million doses of vaccine for mass vaccination campaigns in affected parts of Jigawa and Katsina states. A sound vaccination strategy is important given the large population at risk and moderate global vaccine levels, the WHO said.[Mar 4 WHO statement]MRSA spread from zoo elephant to caretakersIn the first reported transmission of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) from a zoo animal to human caretakers, a baby elephant at a San Diego zoo passed the skin infection to at least five zoo workers last year, according to an article published today by Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR). The report also documents the first known case of MRSA in an elephant. Analysis showed that the strain was USA300, the type most commonly involved in community-associated MRSA outbreaks in the United States. Investigators said the elephant calf probably acquired the skin infection from a colonized human caretaker. Three of the caretakers received oral antibiotics for their mild skin infections, but the prematurely born elephant was euthanized because it failed to thrive.[Mar 6 MMWR article]last_img read more

Astra aims to maintain majority market share amid plunging car sales

first_img“The automotive segment contributes around 30 to 40 percent to Astra’s bottom line, so we will likely see further contraction in the bottom line despite the economic recovery,” Koneksi Kapital analyst Alfred Nainggolan said, expecting the profit shrink to continue until year-end due to the low vehicle sales.However, the situation is expected to only be temporary with Alfred believing that the company has the opportunity to grow in 2021 due to improving automotive sales, rising crude palm oil (CPO) prices and growing property business.Astra, which has over 230 subsidiaries working under seven business segments, reported a 23 percent annual decline in revenue to Rp 89.8 trillion (US$6.19 billion) as of June 30. Its net profit, excluding revenue from the sale of Bank Permata shares, nosedived 44 percent annually to Rp 5.5 trillion. Net profit in the company’s automotive segment crashed 79 percent yoy to Rp 716 billion, making it the third-largest contributor to the conglomerate’s net profit, after having contributed the most in June last year.Astra director Johannes Loman expected the company’s motorcycle sales to fall 40 to 45 percent this year. This means Astra projects to sell a total of 2.7 million to 2.95 million motorcycles this year from last year’s 4.91 million units.The pandemic has also affected Astra’s financing business. Director Suparno Djasmin said the company’s financial services subsidiaries had restructured a total of Rp 30 trillion in loans from 1 million customers as of July.“Most of the restructured credits were coming from motorcycle ownership loans because the pandemic disrupted customers’ ability to repay their loans,” he said.He said the rate of loan restructuring had slowed down since June following the government’s decision to ease the PSBB.Astra, a publicly listed company, currently has no plan to expand its businesses despite gaining a significant profit from the sale of its stake at Bank Permata to Bangkok Bank.Bangkok Bank acquired in May a 89.12 percent stake in Bank Permata from Astra and United Kingdom-based Standard Chartered Bank for Rp 33.66 trillion, 1.63 times Bank Permata’s book value. “We are focusing on strengthening our balance sheet, but we are always open if a good opportunity presents itself,” Astra president director Djony Bunarto Tjondro said on Monday.The company announced in June that it halved capital expenditure to between Rp 10 trillion and Rp 11 trillion this year as part of its effort to conserve cash.Astra International shares, traded with the code ASII at the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX), had lost 23.47 percent of its value so far this year. The company’s share prices jumped 0.94 percent as of 2:02 p.m. Jakarta time on Tuesday to Rp 5,350 apiece.Topics : Diversified conglomerate PT Astra International is aiming to maintain its car market share at 52 percent this year despite the automotive market’s sluggish performance during the pandemic.The Association of Indonesian Automotive Manufacturers (Gaikindo) has projected that this year’s car wholesales will only reach 600,000 units, a 42 percent plunge compared to last year’s number, as the outbreak hits purchasing power.“We still intend to keep our share at the same rate as last year despite the slump,” Astra director Henry Tanoto said during a virtual press briefing on Monday. This means that Astra expects to sell around 300,000 cars this year, well below Astra’s total car sales in 2019 at 536,402.The market share of Astra, which has around half its revenue sourced from its automotive business, plunged to just 31 percent in May, when national car sales plummeted 95.7 percent year-on-year (yoy) to 3,500 cars following the introduction of large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) to contain the coronavirus spread. Astra usually dominates the market with a share of around 50 percent.Its market share slowly recovered in June to 38 percent and 40 percent in July in line with rebounds in sales nationwide. At least 25,283 cars were sold in July across the country, higher than 12,623 in June but far lower than 89,254 cars in July last year, according to Gaikindo data compiled by Astra.Head of investor relations Tira Ardianti said the company had prepared several strategies to maintain its market share. The strategies include strengthening its product lines with new and revamped models and providing the best customer experience from presales to after-sales, she told The Jakarta Post on Monday. last_img read more

ECB interest rate decision ‘like a tax’, says Switzerland’s Publica

first_imgStefan Beiner, head of asset management at Publica, Switzerland’s largest pension fund, has said the European Central Bank’s (ECB) recent rate cut had been largely “expected by the markets” but was exactly what European pension funds did not need.He pointed out that the ECB had to date been “less active” than other central banks, and said it was “understandable” that it wanted to try and ensure that, in the real economy, the amount of loans for corporations and consumers would expand.“I do not know whether this measure will actually have a net positive effect on the real economy,” he added, “but we as pension funds are suffering from the low interest rates.”Beiner called the rate cuts a “tax”, which “we – as savers – have to pay via low interest”. He said a rate increase would “hurt pension funds over the short term with an accounting loss” and that, over the long term, higher interest rates would help the pension fund industry.Currently, 10-year Swiss government bonds yield 70 basis points, while a recently placed 50-year Swiss government bond yields just 1.6%.For Publica, which has CHF36bn (€29.5bn) in assets under management, the ECB’s decision to lower the benchmark interest rate from 0.25% to 0.15% means “risk-free(ish) assets have become even more unattractive in terms of return expectations”, and demand for riskier assets such as equities will “potentially increase”.But Beiner warned that equities from industrialised countries, for example, were already “priced quite ambitiously”, and that “many of the underlying structural problems remain unsolved”.At the Swiss Pension Conference, Beiner said Publica reduced its equity exposure at the beginning of the year, as he expects lower returns from the asset class in the coming years.Instead, the fund is considering to go into private debt such as infrastructure debt and direct lending.last_img read more

Dr John Fox: Assisted dying is not the right cure for suffering

first_imgNZ Herald 31 January 2018Family First Comment: A superb response – from someone ‘on the frontline’Make a submission against euthanasia read Brendan Rope’s story of his father’s battle with motor neurone disease with sadness.Stories of such weight are half the argument for assisted dying, and we should take them seriously.But we should also take seriously the assumptions about disability the article also displays. As a trustee of a disability charity, I know many people who can’t speak. Many people who can’t feed themselves.As a sufferer of spastic hemiplegia, I too am in daily pain. I too am frustrated, and angry, and crying, and sad. Our elderly in rest homes, dementia units, and hospitals too know the frustrations of not being able to care for themselves: the pain of having to depend on others.But when you argue that you’d rather be shot than live a disabled life, your argument has profound implications for the value of disabled people, and for those who also have motor neurone disease, spina bifida, or like me, cerebral palsy.We have two options here: view dependency as a degrading and horrible crime (which puts human beings who are dependent on the same level as a sick sheep), or we can do what we do with all other forms of suicidality: youth suicide or elder suicide, and come around the person with proper medical treatments, family and community solidarity, and meaning.Mr Rope announces that suicide is a very different thing to euthanasia, but offers no arguments why this is so—from the disabled corner, I argue it’s exactly the same.READ MORE: up with family issues in NZ.

Zamora returns to secure Fulham point

first_imgFulham 1 Blackburn 1Bobby Zamora’s equaliser secured a point for Fulham, who still await their first Premier League victory under manager Martin Jol.The Whites dominated much of the game but were unable to find a winner after Zamora cancelled out Ruben Rochina’s spectacular opener.AdChoices广告Zamora made a welcome return from injury and was partnered up front by £10.6m signing Bryan Ruiz, who made his debut following his pre-deadline move from Dutch club FC Twente.It was a tough introduction to English football for Ruiz and the Costa Rican was taken off at half-time having struggled to get into the game.Scott Dann made his debut for Blackburn following his £6m move from Birmingham and the centre-back almost presented Fulham with the opener on 22 minutes.Dann gave the ball straight to Zamora, who then appeared to be fouled in the area by Michel Salgado only for referee Howard Webb to award Rovers a free-kick because the Fulham forward handled the ball as he was felled.The decision was harsh on Jol’s men and came shortly after Whites defender Aaron Hughes limped off and was replaced at right-back by Stephen Kelly.And the home side’s afternoon took another turn for the worse when they went behind to a stunning strike by Rochina in the 32nd minute.Junior Hoilett teed up the young Spaniard, who let fly with a brilliant 30-yarder that flew past keeper Mark Schwarzer and went in off the underside of the bar.But Fulham hit back only five minutes later. Danny Murphy’s ball found Zamora, who breezed past a weak challenge from Gael Givet before curling his shot in off the post.Zamora was partnered by Moussa Dembele in a second half Fulham bossed in terms of possession but struggled to create clear-cut chances.Aside from his first-half aberration, Dann was hugely impressive at the back for Rovers, helping them secure their first point of the season.That may ease some of the pressure on former Fulham assistant boss Steve Kean amid speculation about the Scot’s future as Blackburn manager.Striker David Goodwillie wasted an opportunity to ease even more of that pressure on Kean when he dragged a late shot woefully wide after finding himself through on goal.Rovers goalkeeper Paul Robinson, on the other hand, did his beleaguered boss proud by superbly tipping away Clint Dempsey’s 90th-minute effort.Blackburn ended the match with 10 men because they had used all three of their substitutes before Hoilett went off on a stretcher following a sickening collision with Schwarzer in stoppage time.It happened after Kelly’s error meant Schwarzer had to rush from his line to prevent Hoilett latching onto Robinson’s long kick.last_img read more
