Things are escalating rapidly and the finger-pointing will only grow more violent in the next few days. The House Ways & Means committee has just issued a statement that:


Should make for some fireworks, lots of 'pleading da fif', and apologies. We just want to make sure all the key questions are asked and answered about this "outrageous" act...

Do you not enforce collection from them because they don't have "liberty" or "tea party" as part of their names?

Start off by telling everyone that is being questioned, after putting them under oath, that they are going to jail for felonious abuse of government power.  Tell them that anyone that they told that did not report this felony is also going to be going to jail, including spouses, children, parents, neighbors and friends.  Tell them at this point, the answers that they give will determine for how long they go to jail.  If you lie, do not ever plan on getting out of jail again.  OK, now:

- Who told you to do this?

- Who thought this idea up?  Why do you think that?

- Who did you tell that you were doing this to?

- Who did they tell that you were doing this to? Why do you think that?

- Did you think that this was fun or funny as you were doing it?

- Who created your list of questions for these groups that you were "investigating"? Why do you think that?

- Who decided what specific groups were being "investigated"? Why do you think that?

- Provide a list of every group that you sent questions to and the questions that you sent to those groups

- Supply every e-mail that is in any way connected to this

- Who did you turn the answers over to that you received back from those groups being invetsigated?

- Who did they forward those answers to?

- Who did you believe ultimately wanted you to do this? Why do you think that?

- Who do you believe saw the answers from these groups?  Why do you think that?

- What did you do to the parties who did not answerrs everything completely?  Who told you to do this to them?

- Who do you think is going to rescue you from these charges and your prison time?  Why do you think that?

- Do you know what "salad tossing" is?  Maple syrup or honey? 

- Do you know that we are putting you in with the meanest bull-dyke and the baddest ass rapist we can find in the entire US?

- Paper or plastic?

You can't have fiat money without an income tax. One requires the other. For one thing, the income tax creates a built-in demand for the fiat currency that ensures it circulates even as its value collapses.

Why is everything a -gate?  Watergate is 40 years in the past and unless there is a burglary of some office not all scandals need -gate added to them.  How about calling it what it is - government corruption by employees that had tacit approval to complete a witch hunt.

Yep, question the timing too. This is tin foil hat stuff I know but probably came from the Clinton camp. Any story that makes Obama look bad would normally not see the light of day. However, someone is going down for Benghazi and no way they can pin it on a low level flunky.

Bill can smell a return to White House power so he is firing shots across the administration bow.

2) How many times were you contacted to increase or impose audits on "progressive" groups?

3) Which officials from the Obama Administration were involved in trying to intimidate "Patriot" groups from the 1st Amendment rights?

4) Which officials from the Treasury Department were involved in covering up these actions until recently disclosed?

5) Which terms were used to determine whether a given group was "Patriotic" or "progressive"?

6) Have you taken other actions (such as freezing bank accounts, surveillance, personal visits to inspire intimidation, phone calls) against these so-called "Patriot" groups?

7) Can you cite any Constitutional authority for these discriminatory actions?

The big deal is that what was done is ILLEGAL, and nobody is going to jail, ensuring this will happen again. Resignation is a mockery of justice. There is no rule of law in this country anymore -- and everyone just accepts it. Bankers don't go to jail for robbing trillions from taxpayers, federal agents don't go to jail for selling arms to criminal organizations, and the perps here won't go to jail either. Justice for SOME, and, if your influence and wallet is fat enough, a blank check to do whatever you want.

"But six months later, the IRS applied a new political test to groups that applied for tax-exempt status as “social welfare” groups, the document says. On Jan. 15, 2012 the agency decided to target “political action type organizations involved in limiting/expanding Government, educating on the Constitution and Bill of Rights, social economic reform movement.,” according to the appendix in the IG report, which was requested by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and has yet to be released. "

So, the IRS is admitting to targeting organizations.  Did they also target individuals?  How about getting a list/database of all audited individuals to see if any patterns emerge?

"In December 2010 the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that just because your email goes through a third-party service provider doesn't mean you lose that expectation of privacy. It said federal and local law enforcers would need a warrant to read through the contents of email.

But that was just the ruling of one appeals court -- not the Supreme Court -- and the IRS' official manual online continues to claim that it does not need a warrant for emails older than 180 days."

Also, I'd like to know who's email the IRS obtained, have it audited and see if any patterns emerge here.

And in regards to your stated inquiries, did you make the same requests of La Raza, NALEO or the California Healthcare Foundation? 


Would you consider funding political propaganda commericals for criminal invasion, amnesty and free healthcare for illegal aliens a "charitible" endeavor?

IRS is "targeting" certain groups! And this is supposed to be a shocking revelation? Next, we'll hear that corporations are lawless criminals.

Are you OK with them revoking the 501(3)c status of the Unitarian Universalist church near you? My pastor has said some really mean things about our local Republican representatives, but not so much about the Democratic ones.

Do you really want the government in your church's affairs? How about your health care? Are you OK with the gov't. having access to your health care records? Are you going to complain if a "fundy reich wing" government uses the powers YOU advocate against you?

Get real - absolute power corrupts absolutely, and most of DC is as corrupt as they can get.

The buck stops with you, Inspector General. Will you resign after this hearing...after explaining to the American people why you allowed this grotesque abuse of power?

This type of action by government departments against private citizens was commonplace in totalitarian regimes - places like Nazi Germany, Bolshevik Russia, Communist Eastern Europe. They too excused this kind of behavior against the private citizen.

You must be held accountable for the failings of your department. This is your chance to offer a full and frank explanation - and a description of what steps are being taken to ensure this type of thing never happens again.

Then resign.

Yep. That's the playbook. However, this Inspector General is charged with oversight of all matters related to the IRS. So, if he doesn't resign, then he is perfectly well placed to recommend who should, given this grotesque abuse of power within the IRS...sanctioned by who ?

This hearing should be the start of the inquiry,  not the end of it, although I do accept that some people think it is yet another diversion from more troubling matters involving foreign policy etc.

This revelation about targetting opponents of the existing regime ought to give genuine constitutionalists enough ammunition to challenge the slow poison of corrupt politics and banksterism, ruining the Republic.

What fundementals is the US tax code based on? Every academic I talk to who does comparative and historical analysis says the US tax code is based intrinically on war rationing/provisioning.

If this is true, does that explain why the government must describe all its initiatives with the "war on" prefix? Examples include: poverty, drugs, women, the family, terra, obesity, etc.

That's a very fair point, and reveals the great deception at the center of modern U.S. taxation, introduced at about the same time as the private corporation of old European/British bankers introduced their un-Federal no-Reserve Board to the USA, 1913.

Central banks, endless war, ruined currencies, mass deception, crypto-fascism ... using departments of government to spy on and punish law abiding citizens or harass them into silence.

It actually goes further back than that. There are currently enforcable provisions of US Code that implemented taxation for funding the Spanish American war. There are provisions in the tax code to subsidize the makers of wooden arrows, such that if Einstiens theory on World War IV are correct, the US will have slightly better weapons than sticks or stones. But Einstien was not very smart. He could not figure out his taxes in the 1950s, when there were only a few thousand pages.

'It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.' (Albert Einstein)

A prescient comment on a trend that has accelerated in recent times, imo. Big Brother really is watching, listening, plotting, as per the agenda of the Trilateral Commission, and Rothschild Zionism which is about fascist control, regardless of one's religion including juadaism, or other belief system.

The modern taxation system of the U.S. is directly linked to the creation of the un-Federal no-Reserve Board, and its globalist ambitions, rather than merely domestic matters.

I have no time for anybody who judges people by their appearances.  Well, there are appearances and then facial expressions, which count.

But I have to say, the first time I saw that guy, I had to laugh.  Is this jelly doughnut the personal spokesman of the president of the United States!?!?!  What is wrong with the POTUS that he has this dazed and confused little teddy bear doing his bidding for him.  Whining and guffawing - always flusterd - and not even doing spin well.  I figured that it was part of the "bring things down to the least common denominator" program.

I mean - did/does anybody take that guy seriously?

You want somebody hard as nails in that slot.  Like Vladdimir Putin.  You know....somebody who can give the press that "if you don't believe me I will tear your throat out" look.

I mean....that guy ALWAYS looks confused.

Knowing that civics is no longer taught in our school system, know this.

The dept of Treasury is part of the executive branch of .gov.

The IRS is run by Treasury.

Obama is the head of executive branch.
