LAW!? I AM THE LAW!

Last Night Jack Nicholson revisited his role as Colonel Jessup

Sorry.

IRS Commissioner Koskinen tried to channel Colonel Jessup but failed to generate any of the character’s sympathetic aspects and focused only on the Smugness:

“You have already said, multiple times today, that there was no evidence that you found of any criminal wrongdoing,” Gowdy said. “I want you to tell me: What criminal statutes you have evaluated?”

“I have not looked at any,” the IRS commissioner admitted.

“Well then how can you possibly tell our fellow citizens that there is no criminal wrongdoing if you don’t even know what statutes to look at?” Gowdy followed-up.

“Because I’ve seen no evidence that anyone consciously –“

“Well how would you know what elements of the crime existed? You don’t even know what statutes are in play,” Gowdy said, visibly annoyed. “I’m going to ask you again: What statutes have you evaluated?”

“Uh,” the IRS commissioner stumbled, “I think you can rely on common sense–“

“Common sense? Instead of the criminal code, you want to rely on common sense? No, Mr. Koskinen, you can shake your head all you want to, commissioner. You have said today that there’s no evidence of criminal wrongdoing and I’m asking you what criminal statutes you have reviewed to reach that conclusion.”

“I reviewed no criminal statutes,” said the IRS commissioner.

You want to know what is wrong with our Government?

Commissioner Koskinen is what’s wrong with our Government.  All of the Bureaucrats that see the world as he does are what’s wrong with our Government.  An institution that is so accustomed to ‘being the law’ and see no reason to know the law is what’s wrong with our Government.

Elitist, Smug Liberal Progressives have taken over the Government from the top down.  It happened over time.  It is complete.

Now that there has been an unabridged War declared on the only opposing Ideology it is presenting itself for all to see.

The Koskinen’s, Lerner’s, et al. are coming out of the shadows into the sun.

In light of Jonathan Gruber’s video taped Honesty… I felt this was worth a repost, just as a reminder that they All think you’re Stupid and they’re above your Stupid laws.


So if We Stop Paying you Altogether?

IRS Commissioner Golem: “You really do get what you pay for.”

John Koskinen predicts a terrible 2015 tax season.  And, of course, it’s Your fault.

No… it’s not that the IRS targets political enemies instead of sticking to it’s job.

No… it’s not that the Tax Code is intentionally so complicated as to make sure you’re guilty of Something at all times.

No… it’s not that the IRS is top-heavy with career bureaucrats because of Public Sector Unions and our inability to reduce redundant Government Jobs.

No… it’s not because all the Onerous Socialist Obama Care Taxes and Fines start in 2015… because they do.

No… it’s not because the IRS is made up of a bunch of Power Hungry Progressive Elitists.  Well.. actually… okay, it kind of is….

Rather…

It’s YOUR Fault because you don’t seem to be up for continuing to send more of your hard-earned money to Government, particularly the IRS, in the hope they will do MORE of the Above.

Thus…

You Must be Punished.

And this time you may not even have to be associated with a specific Political Ideology.

You want EQUAL TREATMENT?

They’re going to make sure you get as much as they can shove in.

You’re Welcome.

 


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?
