Capitalism and free-enterprise been so close as being doomed to fail, as it has under the aegis of this cultured charlatan by the name of Barack Obama

Should Americans Continue Paying Taxes to the IRS

Think I am kidding, uh?  How would you like it if you were to wake up tomorrow and, by the grace of God, the country had totally abolished the IRS and from here on out, you were spared the rigors of paying any more taxes ever again?  This would be, for most of us I assume, cause for massive celebration - an unimaginably joyous and magnanimous occasion probably inducing the largest party in the history of the nation, the world maybe, bar none, would it not?


Well, the moment we have all been fretfully waiting for might be closer to reality than we ever thought possible, especially in light of the events now unraveling in the ongoing IRS scandal; events, quietly paving the way for the notion of not paying taxes ever again, taking a life of its own.  At the heart of it all, it’s no other than our nefarious IRS admittedly targeting selected political groups who had applied for tax exempt status based on intensive scrutiny of names and/or political affiliations.  Also at center stage of the soap-opera is IRS officer and self-appointed femme-fatale Ms. Lois Lerner. In January 2006, Ms. Lerner had been appointed as Director of Exempt Organizations for the IRS.  In her newly appointed post, Lerner was responsible for a broad range of compliance activities, including the processing of applications for tax exemptions.

Pursuant to the protests of groups targeted by IRS and after the start of some grim investigations by various government groups, in May 2013, before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Lerner admits to the IRS’s complicity in the breaching of the law covered under Section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code (26 U.S.C. § 501(c)(4), exempting certain types of non-profit organizations from having to pay federal income tax by admitting to selectively rejecting applications based exclusively on their political affiliations.  Lerner’s admission of guilt was only followed by her refusal to testify on the committee’s probe of her role in the scandal invoking her Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination, causing committee chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), to dismiss the hearing amidst a labyrinth of controversies centered around Lerner’s potential waiving of her rights to the Fifth, by virtue of having made an opening statement.

Abundance of evidence all pointing to one of the most disgraceful and shameful cover-ups chapters in the history of this great nation

Later on, in 2014, the former Director of the IRS Exempt Organizations is held in Contempt of Congress for her role in the 2013 IRS controversy and her refusal to testify.  To add insult to injury, on June 13th, 2014, just like that, the IRS informs members of Congress that Lerner’s hard-drive had crashed and that years worth of her e-mails were permanently missing, prompting a series of congressional hearings about the issue.  IRS claimed that Lerner’s hard drive containing emails relevant to its audits of numerous conservative groups had been destroyed, thus impeding the recovery of any highly sensitive and potentially incriminating material whatsoever.  In essence, IRS claimed that Ms. Lerner herself had lost the files as the emails were on her own PC.  Needless to say, the mysterious if yet preposterously convenient disappearance of the most relevant evidence in the case, did, justifiably so, stir all sorts of mistrustful presumptions on the part of congressmen from both sides of the aisle.

Notwithstanding the abundance of evidence all pointing to one of the most disgraceful and shameful cover-ups chapters in the history of this great nation,  I personally felt rather insulted by the display of arrogance exemplified by IRS Commissioner, John Koskinen, while in his two appearances in front of the Committee on Ways and Means held on Friday, June 20th, followed by his appearance in front of the House Oversight Committee, led by Chairman Darrel Issa, held on the evening of Monday June 23rd.  Mr. Koskinen, came through as one of the most repulsive characters in this made-for-Hollywood drama - a despicable, supercilious and condescendingly disdainful individual, who thought he could play mind-games with the inquirers of Congress’ probing panel, were it not for one of the most courageous displays of leadership and integrity I have ever witness in my life time by Rep. John L. Mica from Florida, Rep. John J. Duncan from Tennessee, Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah and Rep. Tray Gowdy from South Carolina, all of whom, together with Chairman Issa,  who gracefully managed to grill and discredit Mr. Koskinen as the later continued to show his contemptuous disrespect for the congressmen.

Matter of fact, everyone of us should pay tribute to this panel of great congressmen for showing the world, there is good reason, after all, to be proud of being an American. For those of you, privileged enough to have watched these hearings as I did, the congressmen’s interactions with the IRS Commissioner were, to say the least, a true display of patriotic hope.  My everlasting gratitude to all of them for serving as an inspiration at just about that time when all hopes for a cleansing of the Republic were quickly dwindling away.

Just in case you missed it, Mr. Koskinen’s demeanor all throughout the hearings, was, in essence, archetypal of what the Obama’s administration and all its cronies are all about - a contemptible band of liars and impostors used to arrogantly presume, they can get away with just about anything in their whims, as, so far, they have, and probably will again if judged by all the preceding scandals, i.e., Fast and Furious, the Benghazi massacre, the Veterans Administration scandal, etc.  Strictly from a legal vantage point, in just about any other administration in the nation’s history, a criminal admission of guilt by one of most powerful agencies in government would have had sufficient probable cause for naming a Special Prosecutor to investigate the matter further, that is, were it not for the fact that such a decision rests entirely in the hands of Attorney General Eric Holder - himself one of Obama’s leading partners-in-crime, thus the insurmountable odds that this investigation will go nowhere, as, once again, American’s rights are disgracefully desecrated.

The more the investigating committee probed into the events surrounding the scandal throughout the hearings, the more filth we found. We learned of multiple issues, each of which were, at worst, legally questionable actions undertaken by IRS, and at best, outright breaches of the law; including some premature leaks of information involving the White House, all along as our esteemed President erratically chose to defend the government agency by publicly claiming there was: “not even a smidgen of corruption”.

In lieu of everything that has transpired, inevitably, all Americans should ask themselves some fundamentally basic questions, such as: should Americans continue paying taxes to the IRS? Should Americans continue trusting to place their hard-earned dollars in a corrupted government agency?  Ever stopped to think what would happen if it was to be the other way around?  What if we, in our next IRS audit, were to tell the IRS’s auditors that we simply had lost the hard-drive of our PC, containing all relevant information regarding our audit; that, [the] information they [IRS] were looking for had been irretrievably lost.

The answer to these and many other questions regarding America’s future, transcends, if you will, the IRS and VA scandals, Benghazi, Obamacare and all others appurtenant to this administration. It will take more than just the revamping of these organizations and/or issues; it will take, specifically, the complete eradication, the complete abolition of Barack Hussein Obama and his cadre of liberal misfits; it will take the demolition of the Socialist / Communist model now being implanted in the hearts and minds of many Americans; it will take the involvement of every single American of voting age, into the current affairs of the nation; it will take our doing everything we can to prevent Hillary Clinton from being the next U.S. president in 2016, and if she is, we will merely be voting ourselves for more of the same, albeit our collective understanding that we do not have any more room for mistakes as that of electing another impostor to the highest post in the land.

Not ever in the great history of our nation has capitalism and free-enterprise been so close to being doomed to fail, as it has under the aegis of this cultured charlatan by the name of Barack Obama; the aegis of a disciple of Saul Alinsky - one of the U.S.‘s leading hate-filled detractors of Satanic provenance.  The perils to our great nation have been looming in the air since November 2008; looming in an aura of deceit, deception and corruption, such as that of the IRS scandal.

To close, once again, I dedicate this dissertation today to Rep. John L. Mica from Florida, Rep. John J. Duncan from Tennessee, Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah and Rep. Tray Gowdy from South Carolina, and very especially to Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), for their incredible display of bravery and patriotism as they confronted Commissioner Koskinen -  one of Obama’s most relentless and arrogant puppets, ever.  Your conduct and leadership, congressmen, on behalf of a silent universe of mainstream Americans incensed with all the ongoing scandals is cause for celebration; is cause for praise and, most of all, it will serve as an inspiration in the restoration of our nation to its former glory.  May God bless you all and may God save America.
