Former head of IRS Lois Lerner email: ‘Lincoln should have let the South go.

Ms. Lerner, who many believe targeted TEA Party groups for persecution while head of the IRS apparently didn’t (doesn’t) have much regard for a large part of the United States. In one email a colleague refers to Texas as “pathetic.”

That’s pretty interesting coming from a Northeasterner. Businesses and people are leaving the Northeast and moving to places like Texas and other parts of the South in droves. Without the job gains in Texas there would be no, as in 0, job gains post 2008 Crash in the USA.

Judicial Watch: New Documents Show IRS Used Donor Lists to Target Audits

That we have an IRS is bad enough. For the majority of our country’s history we had no IRS and we prospered. And we would again if the IRS and the income tax disappeared. But it is exponentially worse that the agency has been used as an outright tool of persecution by the White House. The IRS wasn’t looking for tax cheats, it was looking for enemies of the president.

And the president says that the real scandal is that the IRS doesn’t get enough funding.

Destroying (or attempting to destroy) one’s political opponents with said agency is no big deal however. Not like that is straight out of the 3rd world crony playbook or anything.

The question I have is why Congress, and specifically leadership keeps letting the Obama administration get away with this sort behavior. Behavior which is quite serious and damaging to the United States.

IRS’ Latest Email Excuse Draws It Closer To Rogue Agency Status

(From IBD)

Lawlessness: On Day 768 of the IRS scandal targeting political dissidents, the tax agency said it has more emails to release. Only it can’t release them until September because it must ensure there are no duplicates. Baloney.

Let’s cut to the chase here: The IRS is obstructing justice because it doesn’t want the truth to come out . The agency has been caught red-handed targeting opponents of the Obama administration, including the tea party, pro-Israel groups and conservative news media.

Enough Is Enough: Abolish the IRS

The income tax is absolutely crazy if one takes a moment to think about it. We’ve become so conditioned to accept it that we don’t even realize how ridiculous it is. The government taxes one for being productive, for creating income for one’s family, for doing one’s part to grow the economy. It doesn’t make any sense.

But there is a vast government infrastructure which depends on your money. There is also a political constituency which believes that it is the government’s duty to take income from some in the name of “social justice.” That this money happens to flow back to many of the people calling for “social justice” is a coincidence of course.

Bloomberg: Uncle Sam Is Coming After Your Savings

Make no mistake, the government wants your savings. They want as much as they can get politically. The president recently floated the idea of taxing 529 plans, used to save for college, to pay for community college for people other than your kids. Why should the money you earned, and saved, go to your family? Better for the government to take your money from you so that it can give a gift to political allies.

Some people might call this theft. But not us. Oh, not us.

Congress Looking Into Why IRS Has BIG MONEY Contract With Botched Healthcare.gov Company

One would have thought given how terrible the Obamacare rollout was that CGI (the company which designed the website for the program) would have been run out on a rail by this administration. Even despite the fact that one of CGI’s senior executives was Michelle Obama’s roommate at Princeton. Healthcare.gov was a cluster-you-know-what for the ages.

One would be wrong however.

IRS comes after potential future UK Prime Minister for sale of house in England

The IRS has gone after Boris Johnson, current London mayor and potentially the next prime minister of the United Kingdom, because Mr. Johnson sold his house for a profit and because Mr. Johnson holds a US passport. He was born in the US (he left when he was 5) so naturally the Internal Revenue Service feels that by virtue of this it is owed some of Johnson’s money. Under the law as it stands the IRS has a case, if an immoral one. Johnson has however told the IRS to take a hike. As he should.
