At some point though all a sudden the IRS decides to -- yes and in as it's been reported.
What was unusual -- unique about this is that one of the officials in my count me.
Had disclosed in that I was the subject of an IRS audit to more than one individual in my count me before every who -- the audit.
So obvious isn't would you have any idea how this this official in the county news about the -- before you knew about it and that's all feel part of the investigation rain down and in fact the IRS really embarrassed watchdog looking at this Ryder treasury yes now in terms so -- -- that you had what kind of questions -- they ask Juniata.
A lot the large volume of questions -- what was unique about this is -- some of the questions were directly pertaining to the issues that I had.
With security after I want these accounting was upset about -- -- so does it make some allegation you're running a boarding house of tragedy when you rerun in -- there ever -- -- -- -- why and they think you're ready to boarding -- why they -- if that's a very good question and I'm that was that's what made the -- -- itself.

In -- prior arrests in your tax return did you ever take any deductions.
Or get a week or any income reflected reported no I'm not out so this idea of the boarding house this comes totally out of out of the air crash just -- guess you -- other than the fact that the county is asking the same -- -- -- -- Is there out -- is there anything else that about the IRS investigation peculiar.
The courses the volume of questions was absolutely enormous and you know log in -- an auditor did come to the farm and ask me questions why put -- exit -- cartons so this and so this is AM how many acres you have a -- and shy of seventy.

Update your Tea Party remember how much your affiliation is -- -- why I am a member of the Tea Party and I'm affiliated with the number of different Tea Party groups he has throughout Virginia.
And you know most of all you know I I think that this issue not only affects you know Tea Party members I think it affects all all Americans because.
Nobody should have to live in fear of being targeted because of who they are what they stand for what they believe it.
Have you ever been audited before you know this your first time -- today peculiar about your -- -- -- president -- it complex.
I -- other than the fact that I have a farm I don't know that there is anything else particularly when usual about it.

That my IRS audit my personal credit tax returns where were even disclose publicly by somebody before even became aware of the guided.
And the process has been has been absolutely terrifying for -- in my failing and I should say they're denied -- it's just a mere coincidence yes.
They say coincidences do happen -- meanwhile the Lisa -- IG idea and the treasury inspector general's document yes.
Wouldn't but good -- Kumar said there about -- says Lotta complaints that the IRS these days bring you more more and I say give thanks this is.
And the president the linchpin of liberty stain the only thing that's phony about the -- scandal is the Obama administration's response Kevin cook could be is joins us Kevin nice to see -- -- -- Jackson had never driven.
And -- that everybody got an easy one.
I nobody out accidentally that I actually practice it which makes it worse it of them make the mistake I tell me out -- -- -- -- what do you think what's your response.
So the president saying that the saudis -- phony scandals.
Well as you said the only thing phony is the administration's response because.
They continue to pretend that they have not violated her constitutional rights.
For almost 31 months -- the IRS is unlawfully delayed and obstructed.
My application for tax exempt status.
Their conditioning our -- on how we choose to exercise them.
And the IRS continues to insist that I disclose the identity of the students that I teach some of whom are minors the locations where -- teach them.
And my political views on almost everything possible.
Has anything changed since the last time we were here and on the record of is as have been any sort of progress in terms of the your -- exemption.
Or -- as everyday business interest been I had any sort of impact.
The result of this.
Well unfortunately there has been a huge.
Huge problem with my business in that.
On June 5 2013 which is incidentally the day after -- last appeared on this program and the day after it testified before congress.
I received a call from one of my dear friends a long -- client.
Who expressed such uncomfortable lists with my speaking on these political views.
But they decided that it was no longer.
Appropriate for us to be in business together so that was 75% of my family's business.
And if there's something I'd like to say the administration is I would like them and -- -- the president himself.
-- tell my family that this is phony.
Well the present set on May fifteenth quote from and he says.
I reviewed -- the treasury department's watchdog report and the -- conduct that is uncovered is inexcusable.
Now I don't know what happened between the inexcusable on May fifteenth.
Did yesterday and today -- now he says it's phonies I don't know what happened in between any.
-- Well he's contradicted himself as you pointed out and fortunately for us -- The truth does not depend on what Barack Obama says it is the truth exists separate and apart from that if he doesn't -- the truth the truth -- master him.
How painful is this -- Well.
Of course is painful in the in the way that has affected my family's affected my business.
Remember before I'd explain that and also as I've testified before congress I had loss of 30000 dollar grant.
But in addition to that when you speak the truth without regard to the consequences.
Of speaking the truth for yourself.
The inspirational part is that it gives voice.
To the concerns of many people and I received after my testimony to over 200 emails from people all over the country and including China and Poland.
Who are excited that I was standing up for what I believe so.
Yes there's a negative side but there's also the positive side that.
Someone standing up and I'm I'm not the only one but we're we're definitely there's a group of us were standing up together and that gives us strength -- numbers.
Kevin -- much for joining us -- pressing get on your name I hope I do better next time.
Thank you so much -- appreciate it.
