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.

That boot on the throats of patriotic Americans is growing larger, by the minute.

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.

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.

“Detractors to the repeal of the income tax”?

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.

What should happen is all, from the big guy on down, should lose their jobs and do jail time.

We need to impeach Holder and get a moral Attorney General then let the federal prosecutions begin and continue until we clean out the stables.

Special Prosecutor is needed. Immediately

More than one....many. The problem is you need a clean Attorney General to appoint one.

Republicans , with control of just one house in the Legislative, are faced with threee options here,

1. Shut down the FedGov by refusing to go allow the House to vote on, and refuse to go to committee for, continuing budget resolutions,
2. Shut down the IRS, ObamaCare bureaucracy, and the Labor Department, reform them as stripped down flat-tax agencies without law enforcement powers,
3. Roll over and publicly declare the Republic is dead, then go crawling on their knees for Democrat totalitarians to allow them all to resign to elitist pensioners’ retirement, or immediately flee the country.

Systematic breakdown is not reproachable, reformable, or open to restitution based compensation.

Systematic breakdown results in massive dislocation of civilian populations, ... with the wealthy being the firs tto flee the borders of the taxing authorities.

How many wealthy Americans will now claim refugee status when they flee the US for tax avoidance reasons?

I said it this weekend, and I’ll say it again. This presents a huge opening for the House GOP to launch an IRS reform act...lessening their power, reducing their scope, simplifying the code and highlighting the IRS’s invasion into our medical decisions that the Democrats delivered through Obamacare.


The IRS is not an institution that can be reformed.
The GOP must shut down the FedGov, en total, until blood flows if necessary. If the GOP isn’t willing to force Bernanke to push the US Dollar and US Treasuries into hyperinflationary money and debt printing scenario AT THIS VERY MOMENT, the GOP and Conservative and traditional American SOCIETY has already lost the war.

Anything less will embolden and permanently institutionalize the politicization and partizan entrenchment inside the Executive bureaucracies in IRS, Justice Dept, and Labor Dept.

Of course every cocksucking quisling in the “Conservative media” is going to repeat the sentiment you just wrote, causing the IRS bureacurats to create litmus tests for new hires to make sure only fellow partizans are hired and promoted to senior positions.

SO I appreciate the reasonable but purely academic response you wrote, in reality there is nothing academic about this, either the GOP goes to war, willing to lose it all as in the entire country, the Consitution, the whole kit), or they go to battle in a war they’ll have already lost before they make their next press conference on the matters regarding the IRS.

The IRS is now a more corrupt organization than the Russian Federation taxing authorities before Yeltsin implemented reforms.

The Steve Forbes line of IRS reform will not be severe enough, the entire agency must be eliminated as a line item, every employee fired and lose their seniority, and every IRS ruling, be it a public ruling of standing or a White Paper ruling on individual cases, be scrubbed from the record.

We already fell off the precipice, the old joke of the GOP walking toward the precipice but at a slower pace, no longer applies when you’re reaching terminal velocity after the fall.

I see the need for four special prosecutors:

IRS Abuses

Benghazi

Justice Department

Fast and Furious

You two better watch yourselves, or David Plouffe’s going to use this thread to show that Obama IS creating jobs!

Why is any part of the IG report “redacted”? We need to DEMAND to see it all.

“What about Obamacare? Do critics of Obamacare face extra layers of IRS scrutiny, also?”

Well, of course. You can’t diss our dearly beloved leader and savior of the world that way./s

I’ve been saying that for many years. Maybe this will put its shutdown in motion. Couldn’t happen to a nicer organization.
