    Now we can dare call the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups a conspiracy

    Now we can dare call the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups a conspiracy

    The notion that a few “low level” local IRS employees went rogue is false.

    The timeline appendices to the Inspector General’s report, released by ABC News, detail a far reaching conspiracy to target Tea Party groups with the knowledge of numerous supervisory and compliance persons within the IRS.

    The timeline is embedded below.

    You can now dare call it a conspiracy.

    A little history, here. There was a time when Air Force officers that were masons got favorable treatment with respect to promotions. Masons don’t like Catholics. There was some DISfavor operating, as well.

    Small-minded people of marginal competence are a perpetual danger in a large bureaucracy. When they run amok, they need to be limited in their activity, and some of them need to be terminated (fired, not killed. This is the US).

    We’ll know the extent of the conspiracy when we see how many people are removed from their positions.

    This was one of the articles of impeachment raised against Nixon.

    The Republicans in the House should do two things right now:

    1) Start talking about impeachment…but don’t actually do it.

    2) Come up with legislation to slap the IRS down – ideally embracing truly radical tax reform.

    Oh, and they should specifically always talk in the context of “The Obama Administration’s targeting of opposition political groups through the IRS”.

    This is a serious scandal and the Republicans need a spine for once. Impeaching Obama isn’t going anywhere, at least yet. But they can make him pay a major political price, but only if they do something concrete.

    So make him defend the IRS and the current tax structure, now.

    Instead of vowing to fire those individuals who abused their official power in such an outrageous manner, Obama says that the IRS will be held “accountable”. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? Nothing. The “IRS” is not a person, and does not care if it’s blamed or “held accountable”. What’s he going to do, spank it?

    “Mistakes were made” but not by me…

    Pirro does a very nice job of nailing Pres. Side Show and the Obami here.

    Just because your paranoid doesn’t meant they aren’t after you! Joseph Heller, Catch 22

    All of a sudden, being a conspiracy “nut” isn’t so nutty. This conspiracy theory has a far more factual basis than the anthropogenic global warming theory….
