As more information about the IRS scandal trickles out daily, the White House’s involvement is becoming clearer. Those of us who’ve been warning about the demise of freedom with Barack Obama’s efforts to “fundamentally transform” our great nation are about to witness some sad vindication. Will awakened Americans finally join us in saying “enough is enough”?
The president would like us to believe that he only learned about the IRS corruption from watching the news. But we recently learned that the White House was actively working with the IRS on how to roll out the story of this scandal. So, Mr. President, how can you have your staff work on the roll out of the biggest controversy since Watergate, and yet claim that you only heard about it by watching the news with the rest of us?
For the president to deny any knowledge of what was brewing and to
claim to know nothing about the Benghazi cover-up or anything about
anything White House-related lately, he’s either a liar or a hugely
incompetent CEO. You decide.
Yesterday, we also learned that the top IRS official involved in the
targeting scandal is planning on pleading the Fifth during her
Congressional hearings. That's keen – she’ll be able to enjoy her Fifth
Amendment rights in a hearing about how her intimidating organization
denied Americans the ability to fully exercise their First Amendment
Keep in mind that the IRS considers you guilty until proven innocent when they audit you. The Fifth Amendment doesn’t apply.
This scandal is not just about the IRS targeting Americans to deny
them tax-exempt status or subjecting them to harassing retaliatory
audits. The IRS also leaked to left-wing reporters the confidential
application information submitted by conservative groups.
The IRS claims that their leaking of information was “inadvertent and
unintentional disclosures by the employees involved.” They at first
blamed the entire IRS scandal on a couple of employees who “went rogue,”
but we soon found out that this was just more malarkey coming from the
president’s spokesman. But even if these were “inadvertent and
unintentional disclosures,” is that supposed to make us feel better?
With the IRS running Obamacare, what are the chances that our
confidential information and medical records will “inadvertently” and
“unintentionally” be disclosed? Please remember that some of us warned
America about the dangers of having the IRS play such a big role with
the administration of Obamacare. We were laughed at and mocked
relentlessly back then. It sure doesn’t seem funny now, does it?
This IRS scandal is especially terrible because Americans live in
fear of the IRS like no other entity because this monstrous bureaucracy
has the power to take your hard-earned money. Your wages are the sum of
your labors; hence, the IRS has the power to steal the fruits of your
labors. Average Americans live in fear of making an error on their tax
returns that could cost them massive amounts of money, plus their
reputation and good name. If a small business makes a mistake, the IRS
can shut them down and send them to jail.
The IRS has always been the face of intimidating and controlling big
government. Now it’s the face of corrupt big government that actively
attacks the people it is supposed to serve. This isn’t the change
America was hoping for, Mr. President, but it certainly is
