Have Republicans Lost Interest?

…In IRS Political Targeting and the subsequent financial destruction of Citizens?

Could it be The Republicans look forward to Using the IRS as a Weapon against Liberal Groups once they get Ahold of Power?

It’s worth asking.

It’s particularly fascinating after Issa refused to Allow Elijah Cummings to turn the Lois Lerner Hearing into the Elijah Cummings makes Political Statement Hearing.

It seems the only mistake was Cummings creating a fuss.  And I’m sure he is Hearing about it right now.

Let’s be Clear…

The Gravity of the IRS Targeting Groups and Citizens who are identified by their Political Leaning is difficult to describe due only to it’s Immensity.

This is Government Abuse of Power in its Largest, Brightest and Easiest to Understand Form.

It is Clear… It is Definable… it is Undeniable.

You have Faces to associate with It who are actively using the Mobster Clause.

You have Victims of it who have kept Documentation.

You have internal Communications relating to it’s Perpetuation.

And…

Now you have Democrats who are doing Everything they can to make it go away.

I realize the Rep. Cummings is currently ginning up the Liberal Base by playing the Victim Card, he can’t help himself, but it wouldn’t surprise me to see that behavior on this issue stop immediately.  The Democrats want to be able to say “That’s old news”… They Certainly do not want all of you suddenly paying attention to it again.

They want it to go away.

Move On… Nothing to See Here.

So the only Party who would be invested in getting to the bottom of this and putting people behind bars would be… The Republicans.  And, Once again, where are they on this?  Why is that Congressional Hearing Room not FULL of interested Representatives every time this committee schedules time in it?

I’m beginning to think the Republicans want the issue to go away as well.

I’m beginning to think they have plans for this power once they wrest control of the Senate.

I’m beginning to think that once again they are all demonstrating the same sordid behavior.

Darrell Issa should not be alone on investigating this Profound Abuse of Power by the IRS.  If there was ever an issue worth getting your face next to when you’re running in a current election cycle, this would be it… IRS Destroying people’s lives crosses party lines… it’s a no brainer… you would think.

For me… there is a link, I think, to drink.

So I will.


You Tell’em Elijah!

“Mr. Chairman, you cannot run a committee like this,” Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the committee, told Issa, the chairman, at a hearing about the IRS political targeting controversy. “You just cannot do this. This, we are better than that as a country. We’re better than that as a committee.” – Rep. Elijah Cummings (D – MD)

You Go Elijah!

I agree!

We should not run a committee like this!  We cannot allow Bureaucrats who Facilitated the Political Targeting of Citizens to Plead the Fifth after waiving their right to do so!  We ARE a Better Country than That!

We cannot allow the IRS to Withhold documents from a Congressional Investigation of the Weaponization of Government against it’s Citizens!

You are Right Representative Cummings, your Committee IS better than that!

Or are you?


I’m getting Autopen!

All these years I thought signing something meant you personally approved it.  I thought it meant you were obligated to something… somehow…

I can’t believe I’ve been so stupid. Seriously stupid.

I have watched the Administrations answers from Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS targeting of political opposition and also, I predict, the DOJ investigating journalists for doing their job… after which I’ve realized that a “robo-signature”, or Autopen, gives you complete deniability.  And, it appears everybody from our politicians to the Press are good with it!  Absolutely no problem.

In other words, you have your signature put on stuff by a computer… primarily legal stuff… and then you can say you never saw it! By “never seeing it” you can then say you never really approved it. These guys are geniuses!  (Unless you’re a bank… but luckily I’m not!  And clearly they aren’t either.)

With some consideration this makes complete sense.

This government’n stuff is hard. And it’s really, really BIG.  So, who can blame these folks when they are confronted with the immense amount of approven’ they’s gots’ ta do. I understand. So they came up with this thing… that approves stuff, but doesn’t really approve stuff, and all the while they never even have to know anything about it.

Wow! What a time saver! Think about how much more efficient the Government is just because of this and all that unaccountability!

Think about this.  If they can do everything important, from signing Executive Orders into law and up-armoring Mexican Drug Cartels to approving the arrest of idiot video producers while never even having to go into the office, then Common Joe’s like me should be able to do just about anything… in my underwear!  I like doing stuff in my underwear.

If you haven’t guessed, I’m very excited about this new time saver combined with plausible deniability.

The very best part is going to be when I have to “sign” my 2013 tax returns.
