In 1755 Carver joined the Massachusetts colonial militia at the start of the French and Indian War. In 1757, Carver a friend of Robert Rogers, enlisted with Burke's Rangers. Burke's Rangers would in 1758 become a part of Rogers' Rangers. During the war he studied surveying and mapping techniques. He was successful in the military and eventually became captain of a Massachusetts regiment in 1761. Two years later he quit the army with a determination to explore the new territories acquired by the British as a result of the war.

Most {cite}of these were provincial units that were recruited as standard infantry companies from a particular region and then designated as rangers by regimental commanders or by the nature of their deployments. However, these units served only for one particular campaign (usually 9 months). However, such companies were probably not referred to as 'rangers' by contemporaries and certainly weren't permanent ranger units on the British military establishment such as Rogers' and Gorham's corps were--and who were raised to be permanent units and receive special training and equipment. Other similar New England provincial units designated as rangers were really just provincial companies assigned to reconnaissance work to free up regulars for conventional fighting. These would include, in addition to Burke's, the Massachusetts companies of Peter West (1757), Abel Keene (1757-8), Ebenezer Learned (1757-8), and Jonathan Carver (1757-8), as well others from Connecticut, including the company of John Durkee (1757-8), and still others from Rhode Island, David Wall (1757-8), among numerous others, including New York and New Jersey provincial units.</ref>

Massachusetts had learned that her best policy was to raise the usual forces at the commencement of the year, without waiting the requests of defenceless towns and almost abandoned garrisons. Such was the course she pursued in the year 1757. In addition to the colony's garrison troops, "one hundred men were employed on the eastern frontier, and forty-five under a captain and lieutenant, on the west side of Connecticut river, to Range the woods north of Falltown." The latter company — known as Rangers — under the command of Capt. John Burk,† were stationed at Hinsdale's fort, on the east bank of the Connecticut. During the month of March they made frequent marches through the neighboring country for the purpose of discovering concealed Indians. Their course was sometimes along the main stream of West river, and again by its south or west branches. Not unfrequently they ascended to the top of West river mountain, there to watch for the smoke of the enemy's camp fires. Orders were given to the Commissary General to provide these scouting parties with snow-shoes and moccasins, the better to enable them to perform their toilsome labor.

Fox News commentator Juan Williams argues that the Tea Party movement emerged from the "ashes" of Ron Paul's 2008 presidential primary campaign.[1] Others have argued that the Koch brothers were essential in fostering the movement.[2][3] In 2013, a study published in the journal Tobacco Control concluded that organizations within the movement were connected with non-profit organizations that the tobacco industry and other corporate interests worked with and provided funding for,[4][5] including groups Citizens for a Sound Economy (founded by the Koch brothers).[6][7] Al Gore cited the study and said that the connections between "market fundamentalists", the tobacco industry and the Tea Party could be traced to a 1971 memo from tobacco lawyer Lewis F. Powell, Jr. who advocated more political power for corporations. Gore said that the Tea Party is an extension of this political strategy "to promote corporate profit at the expense of the public good."[8]

Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, the ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, rejected the apology as insufficient, demanding “ironclad guarantees from the I.R.S. that it will adopt significant protocols to ensure this kind of harassment of groups that have a constitutional right to express their own views never happens again.”[9]

− On June 9, 2013, Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) released portions of an interview transcript wherein an anonymous IRS manager who described himself as a "conservative Republican" told Congressional investigators that it was he who had initiated the targeted reviews, without any involvement from the White House, and that the extra scrutiny was not politically motivated, but instead was intended to help organize IRS filings.[10][11][12]
