Ben Carson's IRS Audit Can't Possibly Be Coincidence
Investors.com ^ | October 4, 2013 | IBD Editorial

IRS Abuse: It doesn't take a brain surgeon to know that the IRS audit of Dr. Ben Carson can't be a mere coincidence. In any powerful syndicate, the capos know who to whack without the godfather ordering it.

The only way the FBI could put Gambino crime family boss John Gotti in prison was to bug an old lady's apartment in New York's Little Italy and record him giving orders to kill.

But until the FBI bugs the West Wing of the White House, or the Treasury building next door, or the Internal Revenue Service's headquarters a few blocks to the southeast, we might never know the exact origin of America's tax collectors harassing President Obama's political adversaries.

Maybe there was never an explicit order. Considering the threat of being overheard, it's part of the job of the capos to know what the boss wants and make him happy by giving it to him without him even having to ask.

The IRS and the Obama administration are on the same page when it comes to big government: Tea Partiers and other conservatives threaten the massive state they love, and the IRS' powerful army of bureaucrats is a pretty handy weapon for use against them.

In the already blossoming IRS scandal, political organizations' applications for tax-exempt status were delayed or denied during last year's presidential campaign, and well into this year, simply because their names sounded too conservative. The IRS audit of renowned neurosurgeon Carson looks like exactly the same kind of abuse, and it must be subject to a formal independent investigation.

Carson on Wednesday told Fox's Bill O'Reilly that the IRS began examining his real estate holdings after his speech to the National Prayer Breakfast in February,...

When is Al Sharpton going to pay his back taxes? Charlie Rangel? Jesse Jackson? If all these other Blacks can blow off the IRS, why does Ben Carson have to worry? We all know the answer to that.

Even the most wooden headed liberal can see that it isn’t race it’s ideology.

Bill O’Reilly thinks it could be a coincidence.

Due to the current lapse in appropriations, IRS operations are limited. During this period, we are accepting all tax returns, but only processing payments. When the government reopens, we will resume normal processing of returns and issuance of refunds. If you receive a message from “Where’s My Refund” stating your refund is delayed and to call the IRS, we will be unable to assist you at this time. You do not need to take any action. Please check “Where’s My Refund” again 2 days after the government reopens for updated information.

Hmm. Seems like there’s also a huge corporation that owes a billion in back taxes, but just won’t do it. If only I could think of the name. You know - they love Obama.

Of course they can. But they intend to win by any means necessary and the race card can't be trumped.

I did not have that take from watching BOR.
BOR himself was similarly audited by IRS for 3 years running.
He must be fully aware of how this all works.

the world cannot trump the race card

God trumps it without even breaking a sweat

We live under full blown tyranny. Does this deter other people from speaking out? You bet it does. The IRS needs to be destroyed.

The fact that BOR spins like a whirling dervish everyday is coincidence too?

Too bad Woodward and Bernstein don’t care. In fact they’re so deep in the opposition they’re probably responsible for this.

I am sure unspoken orders were sent out early in the administration first term by Alexrod and Plume to target any and all Obama critics...

That policy has not changed

Standard Chicago thug politics. Dig up any dirt you can on opponents and if you don’t find any invent some and then proceed to smear them.

"Coincidence" is not a kosher word.

Jesus Christ: You can’t impeach Him and He ain’t going to resign.

Remember the outrage from the media when they were SURE that Nixon was ordering the IRS to audit liberals in the late 60s and 70s. There was never any evidence of it, but that didn't stop them from accusing the Nixon Administration.

We have actual PROOF now, but we're getting bupkis from the media this time around, because it's their guy in the White House.
