Posted on 06/20/2014 3:00:52 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic
My parents didnt spend much time warning us kids about vandalism, petty theft or mail fraud, but much was made of the attention and focus we would need as adults when it came to our finances, because the Internal Revenue Service could pounce at any time. If you ever get audited were chilling words that frightened me, as I was certain I could never, ever produce the requisite documentation to defend myself and would be mortally ashamed when I had to suffer the legal consequences. My mother, who ran her own business, lamented the time it took her to copy every receipt and invoice, which filled multiple filing cabinets in her small office past our laundry room, back when records were still kept only on paper.
Now electronic, all documents must be stored or destroyed even in our federal government. The IRSs own rules state: IRS offices will not store the official recordkeeping copy of e-mail messages that are federal records ONLY on the electronic mail system, unless the system has all of the features of an electronic recordkeeping system. The news that emails Lois Lerner, the central figure in the investigation into the agencys targeting of conservative groups, wrote between 2009-2011 accidentally perished in a computer crash is once again asking us all to choose between laughing or crying.

So now we have come to the point the entire feral gummint is a criminal conspiracy and enterprise.
can you say the RICO act?
Bastards ALL belong in prison or at the end of a rope.
Yes, the whole putrefying, stinking, criminal enterprise, known as the federal government, would make the Mafia blush. To answer her question, what is the IRS hiding? Criminal activity, of course.
Also, the old Watergate adage is that the cover up is worse than the crime.
In the case of the IRS scandal, we have a blatant and in your face cover up being shoved down out throats and high government officials exercising their 5th Amendment rights against self incrimination so what they are covering up must be pretty bad indeed.
In the IRS case, it's becoming plainly obvious that, unlike the Watergate scandal, with the IRS scandal the crime is much much worse than the cover up.
There is really only one reason for this. It goes to the highest reaches of the White House.
And no one seems to care. Suppose the emails are recovered and they flat out show Obama ordered the IRS to stop conservative groups. Then what?
Good point; would Boehner do more than shed a tear and go back to being a doormat for the Dems? Probably not.
The democratic/progressive apparatchiks will say, because of Bush and his Conservative enablers, they needed to stymie alternative thought, ensure the rich paid taxes, and bad people were sent to jail (like they should have been in the first place).
The IRS expects us to keep our records. Shouldn’t they keep theirs for a congressional investigation?
The administration, IRS, DOJ, EPA, ICE are flipping Americans the middle finger. This is it. If congress doesn’t go after the IRS with a rabid vengeance, stick a fork in the USA. We’re done.
Subpoena every IT person involved. Someone will crack or whistleblower.
Heads must roll...... bloody heads into the basket of straw.
They’re hiding Barry and Val’s orchestration of the whole thing.
It would be normal to expect laws to be enforced - and then these criminals would be held to account. But these aren’t normal times.
Our side needs to fight the war that we don’t even know has been declared against us. Stop adhering to laws in our fight against them. That’s how they’re winning - they don’t pay attention to laws and they get their stuff done. We try to use laws to stop them - and years and years later we may get some relief but maybe not.
Put the IRS Koskinen guy in jail. Do not respond to cries of “you can’t do that”. We just did.
Control the border w/ state personnel. Ignore cries from Holder that it’s fed responsibility to control the border. Send buses away at the border using state personnel. Lock up any feds who intervene in the state.
Listen we’re analogous to the innocent victim who is getting mugged continually but refuses to arm himself. By following the law, we are disarming ourselves. They are armed - that is - they don’t allow the law to keep them from doing what they want. We must do the same.
If they want a lawless society, we better be willing to engage in that war or we will lose. And we are.
The crime of breaking all of one’s bones is therefore preferable to total assassination. The penalty is smaller, therefore better
