IRS Employees Fueling the Democrat Party Machine!

A Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of OpenSecrets.org data found Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employees have backed Democrats over Republicans by 2-1 in their political donations over the last 25 years. Donors listing the IRS as their employer have donated roughly $453,800 to Democratic candidates and causes and $221,400 to Republican candidates and causes since 1990. About one in four of the dollars for Democrats, or roughly $117,500, went to President Barack Obama. But IRS employees Read more […]

Keep Telling Yourself You Live in a Free Country

“Land of the free, home of the brave” doesn’t apply to the US anymore, but don’t tell that to the brainwashed sheeple still singing it at the top of their lungs. The flat fact is that we’re not brave, no matter which side of the aisle we’re cowering in. As a country, we are motivated almost entirely by fear. Fear of terrorism, fear of conspiracy, fear of conspiracy theorists, fear of global warming, fear of declining industry, fear of job loss, fear of socialism, fear of capitalism, fear Read more […]

IRS Steals $100K from Virginia Man – Forced to Apologize and Pay Him Back after He Humiliates Them!

After publicly humiliating the Internal Revenue Service, a Virginia man received more than $100,000 from the agency. Lyndon McLellan had the bank account for his Arlington convenience store seized by the IRS, and at first he wasn’t even sure why. The agency used civil asset forfeiture laws to take McLellan’s money without convicting or charging him of a crime. The IRS said it suspected McLellan was violating federal structuring laws, which prohibit making multiple cash deposits of less Read more […]

IRS Employs Tax Cheats and Promotes Them

Recently, we reported about the MSNBC anchors who were exposed as tax cheats who owed the IRS tens of thousands in back taxes. What’s particularly maddening about that is not so much that they didn’t pay the government their “fair share,” but that these anchors have been so adamant that everybody else, especially the rich on the right, pay their “fair share.” It’s almost like they’re saying that they don’t have to abide by the same rules they apply to everyone else. Maybe they think Read more […]

George Soros Made His Fortune Deferring Taxes He Wants Others to Pay

What is it with liberal hypocrisy? Are they immune from seeing it, or what? I mean, sure, conservatives regularly live lives contrary to their stated ideals, but they at least have the modicum of shame necessary to try to hide their duplicity. Liberals? It’s like they don’t even see it. Another case in point: George Soros is one of the most outspoken lobbyists for higher taxes for the rich. Yet Soros apparently amassed his prodigious fortune by deferring taxes. What? While building a record Read more […]

The IRS Deliberately Cut Customer Service Budget? Why?

A report by the House Ways and Means Committee claims that the IRS is “doing less with less”—intentionally cutting its customer service budget in order to “punish” taxpayers for IRS budget cuts: IRS Commissioner John Koskinen has blamed the IRS’s “abysmal” customer service on congressional budget cuts — funding is down $1.2 billion from its 2010 peak — but a new congressional report points the finger back at the IRS. While congressional funding for the IRS remained flat from Read more […]

IRS Defends Giving “Back Pay” Tax Refunds to Illegal Immigrants

What? It’s bad enough that the civil government gives so-called refunds to people who haven’t actually paid any taxes. But now the IRS is claiming that illegal immigrants with new Social Security numbers (thanks to Obama’s executive amnesty) are apparently entitled to “refunds” for taxes they never paid while they were earning money in the US illegally. What could their defense of this possibly be? Here it is , for what it’s worth: President Obama’s new deportation amnesty could Read more […]

IRS Hires CGI Federal, the Same Company that Flubbed Healthcare.gov!

What in the world? I know that civil government is famous for inefficiency, over-spending, corruption, larceny, and just plain stupid, but this beggars belief. After the feds fired CGI Federal for its very expensive and ultimately botched design of Healthcare.gov, the IRS awarded the same company a $4.5 million contract to create its Obamacare tax program. What? Why? Scott Amey, the general counsel for the non-profit Project on Government Oversight, which reviews government contracting, examined Read more […]

Evidence Shows White House Involved in IRS Targeting Scandal from Beginning

From the moment the IRS targeting scandal was made public, I contended that Barack Obama and the White House were at the heart of the targeting. I’ve written many times that then IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman made far more visits to the White House than any other cabinet member. Before Shulman’s departure, he made 157 visits to the White House. The next most frequent cabinet member visitor was Acting Secretary of Commerce Rebecca Blank with only 86 visits. Attorney General Eric Holder only Read more […]

Surprise! New Docs Involve White House in IRS Scandal

I’m sure everyone here will be extraordinarily surprised to find out that 2,500 new documents indicate that the White House knew what the IRS was doing to conservative non-profits all along: In a shocking [sic] revelation, the Treasury Inspector General has identified some 2,500 documents that “potentially” show taxpayer information held by the Internal Revenue Service being shared with President Obama’s White House. The discovery was revealed to the group Cause of Action, which has Read more […]

IRS Admits Finding 30,000 Lois Lerner Emails Presumed Lost

Former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman made 157 visits to the White House prior to the breaking news of the IRS targeting scandal. In comparison with other Cabinet members, the next most frequent visitor to the Obama residence was then Acting Secretary of Commerce Rebecca Blank who made only 86 visits. So when the IRS targeting scandal broke, Barack Obama claimed complete ignorance of what was going on and denied any involvement. Yet I can’t help but wonder if the entire targeting policies Read more […]

It Costs Billions of Dollars to Collect Taxes!

A breakdown of our tax system and the way our taxes are collected brings to light some pretty spectacular horrors. Particularly the fact that it costs our government BILLIONS of dollars just to collect taxes. Imagine if we rid ourselves of the burdensome “progressive” tax system and moved to a flat or fair tax – we could eliminate Billions in waste while collecting revenue more fairly. The IRS would be gone, all of the paperwork needed for taxes would be gone, and the corruption that has plagued Read more […]
