    IRS Intimidation Forced Founder to Shut Down Tea Party Group.

    Progressive Group: IRS Gave US Conservative Groups’ Confidential Documents.

    IG report: ‘Inappropriate Criteria’ Stalled IRS Approvals of Conservative Groups.

    During the 2012 election cycle the Internal Revenue Service did not act as an objective, nonpartisan arm of government subject to the rule of law.

    Instead the Internal Revenue service acted as an arm of the Democrat Party, engaged in harassment, intimidation and opposition research for partisan political purposes.

    The result of the most recent Presidential election, in the key state of Ohio, was impacted, possibly decisively, by this intentional, partisan, coordinated, unlawful activity.

    Yet this entity, the Internal Revenue Service, will imprison you if you disobey it.

    There are “voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity … that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner.”

    Heed the voices.

      FDR and Lyndon Johnson did this and nobody remembers.

      Nixon did it and got creamed by the FBI and Mark Felt via the Washington Post.

      Reagan tried to keep the Contras alive until the Democrats changed their minds again. Ollie North got cocky and came up with a cockamamie scheme to rip off the Iranians and fund the Contras. Reagan and his AG held a press conference and explained what happened. A Democrat hack named Walsh tried to reverse the 1984 and 1988 elections and send Cap Weinberger to prison.

      George W Bush got too ambitious and tried to make a democracy of an Arab tribal society. He was savaged by the same people who voted to invade Iraq. Abu Ghraib was the top NY Times story of 2004. Nobody died, though.

      The IRS crippled the Tea Parties and saved the 2012 election for Obama. Anybody still wonder why the Tea Parties seemed quiet last year ?

      Will any of this matter next year ?

      Word, Dude.

      Valerie Jarrett (Pres. Obama’s closest adviser in the White House and often referred to as “Obama’s Brain”) said this about tomorrow’s election during a press interview in the Obama Chicago headquarters:

      “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.”

      Heed the voices all right.

      Good post.

      Heed the Voices. Like it. May steal it.

      The Voters voted for the next check.

      It will continue to work in the face of any abuse as they are concerned with the next check.

      I don’t know if they’re deliberately restricting the recovery to government connected entities such as the Financials, but it will work.

      Edward Luttwak in the appendix to “Coup De’Etat” wrote about the Duvalier formula: all money above subsistence will be taxed – by whatever name – away, making life above subsistence dependent on government. This has been the rule in Haiti, the rule in Americas inner cities for decades.

      As has the close cooperation with gangsters, such as Second City Cop Blogs about in Chicago. Now.

      I wouldn’t expect the ordinary course of politics to solve matters. The ordinary course of politics has bought us here, the ordinary course of politics is outlined above.

    5. VXXC Says:

      Our legacy Constitution – the one that ended governing with the New Deal, the one we swore to uphold- did not rely on mere laws to uphold Liberty and check government. It’s ludicrous to think that a government would uphold it’s own laws if they are against its interests, see the IRS. Our Founders did not expect Human Nature to perfect itself to where such wonderful selfless and perfect people not only exist, but gravitate to government, which is not only the essence of New Deal Progressive Government; it’s the only, only check on it’s power. The Founders expected competing power centers divided not only between the branches but divided by State and local governments too would act in their own interests, as would citizens. The wonderful system of American Democracy that reigned from Andrew Jackson and ended..ended with FDR added to this by giving the people their check on power, their opportunity to change government with elections. Now neither the Constitutional checks nor the checks of democracy apply. We should be grateful the abuses and burdens have been as light as they are, heavy though it may seem. The State we have in the hand of the Strong and ruthless, as opposed to weak degenerate cowards would be a terrible weapon against us indeed.

    6. VXXC Says:

      To add to above: the only checks we have now on our government is that it’s filled with cowards, weaklings, and degenerates, and they would be afraid to bring matters to bloodshed..AND..that our police and military are cut from such a radically different cloth that a stranger could wonder if we are from the same country, which of course we..aren’t.

      Not only the military but the police take their oaths to the Constitution quite seriously. So you see..they haven’t the muscle to complete the march to tyranny. They have the Iron Boots on their dainty feet, but cannot follow through.

      With regarding to them fearing the people..oh THEY DO..but other than enrage them and push them into an arms race they are powerless except to sputter impotently about gun control.

      As if we’d disarm under any circumstances now.

      Remember these are frail humans, more frail than most, venal, spiteful, petulant. Weak.

      I don’t envy them their positions. Not at all.

      With regard to the Tea Party – and lets be honest the demographic it represents to them – one could ask the Gandhi’s about oppressing the people of your bodyguards, but one can’t ask Indira Gandhi, now can one?
