IRS scandal grows to include debt critics
The Washington Times ^ | May 13, 2013 | Cheryl K. Chumley

Posted on 05/13/2013 6:52:23 AM PDT by george76

the IRS may have been casting an even wider net, and agents could have unfairly targeted groups that touted better government economic policy and debt pay-down. Also among the targeted: Groups that tried to educate about the Constitution or government policy critics


at least one congressional member has wondered: What about Obamacare? Do critics of Obamacare face extra layers of IRS scrutiny, also?

I mean how can you use the information to your advantage?

Well, this is probably going to sound like sacrilege @ FR, but here goes: in the USSR, 'conservatives' were the staunchest state supporters.

Now, a key question is, did they really believe in collectivism, or did they simply accept the existing reality, and use that understanding as a means of achieving some modicum of wealth & independence?

In other words, if one is entrepreneurial and reacts to opportunity as it presents itself, why does one have to be religious about the underlying system of governance?

We're on a boat where people who think independently are vastly outnumbered by those who have a vote as to what direction the ship is going & how it is to be operated.

You can either waste your time fighting that numerical/institutional advantage, or you can think through how to play the game as it lies.

We live in a banker construct that has been utilized countless times over thousands of years. Always the same repetitive trick: confuse debt with money (capital). Manipulate the supply to control the value & profit from both appreciation & depreciation.

Cut idiot politicians and/or "rulers" in for a piece of the action. Employ an army of goons dependent on the payroll to enforce edicts. Co-opt another segment of dependents to form a street army.

Over & over it goes - I mean, it's all pretty boring & mundane if you ask me, which is why the primary players who can't get enough appear to be troglodytic.

Anyway, with biometric ID and other control/enforcement mechanisms slowly being implemented, an entrepreneur looks at this as an opportunity. After all, wouldn't you be giving 80% of the People what they really deserve, while managing to slice off a little bit of wealth for the 20% who can use some of it to protect themselves?

If you’re an individual or member of any group that opposes this current regime, you must assume you’ve got a bull’s eye on your back.

The IRS has been so corrupted that there is no choice but the shut it down.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

That is correct. Obama needs the present IRS to convert the USA into a Nationalist Socialist state. We can save the Republic by shutting down the IRS, and by setting up a new tax law and a new institution to enforce it.

This should be Congress’s highest priority.

Makes you wonder what OTHER agencies are targeting conservatives. For example, what if a conservative has a Social Security Disability claim? Does the Social Security Administration deny claims if they know the claimant is a conservative? How many 0bamabots are quickly granted disability claims even though their claims are bogus? This needs to be investigated by running a demographic spreadsheet on disability claims.

Also, what about the EPA? Are they targeting businesses with conservative ties by citing them for 'environmental infractions'??? Do business owners who are pro-0bama get a pass even though their violations are clear and indisputable? This needs to be investigated.

What about the TSA? Do they consistently 'hassle' conservatives at the airports? What about the DHS? Are their ammo bulk puchases aimed at denying pro-gun Americans from being able to purchase ammo?

Chairman Issa needs to expand his 'IRS targeting scandal' to ALL U.S. GOV'T AGENCIES UNDER 0BAMA.

What about Christians in the military? Are any being targeted? What about the best of the best in the military? Are their missions being compromised in order to appease someone? It does not bode well for the people when corruption is rampant or when the people think the government is extremely corrupt.

I’m going to guess that this will eventually grow to include harassment and auditing of major donors to Republicans around the country, not just the Romney bigwigs Rush was talking about today.

obama is denying it even happened. Despite the IRS ADMITTING they did it, obama said IF they did it, it was wrong.

You're wasting your time, my friend. I can see you're stuck in limbo land, like many others who have reached your level of enlightenment.

The solution is to keep it to yourself. Now that you know the truth, you don't need to muck around in disinformation.

The solution is to keep it to yourself. Now that you know the truth, you don't need to muck around in disinformation. Use this knowledge to your advantage - attempting to reach others is either unneeded or ignored.

This has nothing to do with me; it's the one on the white horse.

King James Version (KJV)

Revelation 19

"11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh."

Suddenly, the bribing/extortion/blackmail of Justice Roberts for his horrific 0bamacare decision doesn’t seem so far fetched! We know how this administration works.

Only if the GOP is smart enough to exploit it.

And that's a huge if.

We have been living in an enemy occupied country since at least January 20, 2009 and possibly longer.

They are getting better at suppression. We need to get better at resistance

Maybe .. Or just a distraction from benghazi? Why did they admit this one so readily? So - we need TWO special prosecutors and don’t give them any slack on benghazi.

Yes I guess you could put it that way. :-)

This corrupt trick has been going on for at least 3 years. The current renewal of attention is all another deception to deflect attention from the Benghazi murders that Bo, hillary, and panetta are responsible for.

Yes, SSA does go after conservatives, who are applying for disability. They also harass representatives and conservative attorneys who represent those people.

People who have a favorable at the hearing level, are then rejected and sent back to hearing, by the corrupt appeals council. They heavily engage in judicial nutering of the ALJ judges.
