The IRS is not - repeat - not out of control | FairTax(R) Friday #FairTax #sgp #TCOT #10th






 

 

"Oh, what a tangled web we weave...when first we practice to deceive." - Walter Scott

The IRS Is Not Out Of Control

Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice, provided an interesting perspective on last week's House Oversight hearing on the IRS targeting scandal.

During the hearing, emails were presented showing that after seeing a draft copy of an IRS Inspector General report on the political targeting of non-profits, Lois Lerner told her co-workers to be "cautious" in their email communications because "Congress might be watching." She also asked the IRS IT department if the department's internal chat system was searchable. 

Lerner's IT colleague, Maria Hooke, responded, "No, the IRS does not routinely save chat communications – unless employees intentionally take steps to preserve their conversations.  These chat communications are not saved – and this is critical – despite the fact that "the functionality exists within the software." 

And how did Lerner respond?  "Perfect."

I am reminded of something Lord Acton once said, "Everything secret degenerates, even the administration of justice; nothing is safe that does not show how it can bear discussion and publicity."

Or, as Jay Sekulow opined, "Some have said the IRS was out of control.  I'd say the opposite.  It was very much in control – doing exactly what it was intended to do with relative impunity, including setting up its own IT resources not to preserve records but to cover its tracks."

The online dictionary defines conspiracy as "an evil, unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plan formulated in secret by two or more persons; plot, a combination of persons for a secret, unlawful, or evil purpose, an agreement by two or more persons to commit a crime, fraud, or other wrongful act."

American citizens live in constant fear of the IRS wrecking havoc on their lives, seizing their assets and throwing them in prison – and all with impunity. Yet evidence now shows that Lois Lerner and certain colleagues at the IRS clearly conspired to punish select politically conservative individuals and non-profits; actions that are a clear violation of federal law.

If this were an isolated incident one could make the case that Lerner and her cohorts could have been given appropriate reprimands and the IRS resumed normal business operations. But this is not an isolated case. Political targeting and retaliation by the IRS has been standard operating procedure since the agency's inception. It is part of the organizational and operational DNA.

The Lerner case demands a special prosecutor. And America demands that the IRS be given a national pink slip.

The FairTax® stands ready to fully replace the current income tax code. And it is the only tax replacement plan before Congress that gives the IRS their walking papers.

If you agree, please send a note to your local newspaper and ask the editor to endorse the FairTax.

If you are on Facebook, share this picture and tell your friends why you support the FairTax Plan.

My name is FairTax

Tell them that under the FairTax they will never have to dread April 15 again, because their days of filing tax returns will be over. Most importantly, be sure and let them know the FairTax disbands, defunds and eliminates the IRS.

Until next week,

The FairTax Act In The Media

The Solution to an Unethical IRS - Pagosa Daily Post

According to a recent Fox News poll, an overwhelming majority (76 percent) of Americans think the Internal Revenue Service intentionally destroyed two years worth of emails.

This latest scandal would seem to be the final straw in a long line of IRS abuses going back many administrations, both Democratic and Republican. Why do we tolerate this situation, when there is a simple alternative?

The FairTax is a national sales tax that satisfies the principles of tax policy far better on every count than the current income tax:

It's simpler, noninvasive, efficient, stable, visible, neutral, encourages economic growth, is broad-based, treats everyone equally and is constitutional

In addition, the FairTax removes the need for an IRS. The tax would be collected by the states, with no concern for income.

Anesthetize: deprive of feeling or awareness | FairTax Friday






 

 

"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." - Albert Einstein

An•es•the•tize: Deprive Of Feeling Or Awareness

Have you ever thought about winning a Powerball lottery? You know one of those multi-state ticket frenzies where the winning payout is so big your head explodes with visions of Tuscan villas, private jets and caviar-topped crostini's. These mega lottery games get even the most cynical of individuals whipped into a frenzy thinking they might beat the staggering odds to win the pot of gold.

During House Oversight hearings, it was revealed that during the past five years, the federal government paid out "$100 billion in improper payments every year thanks to a combination of fraud, clerical errors and insufficient IRS enforcement."

$500 billion over five years!

You would think this news would have also generated a frenzy in the minds of the American people. After all, it was their hard earned tax dollars that were wasted! Sadly, most people didn't know the hearing existed. If they were aware, they may have heard through a major news outlet that it was simply a partisan witch-hunt.

And what was the response of IRS Commission Koskinen? "This is an important issue to the IRS". Wow, thanks Commissioner. 

America sleeps better at night knowing this is an important issue to the IRS. We are truly comforted knowing that the IRS will give the loss of $500 billion in taxpayer funds the same serious attention that has been given the IRS political targeting of non-profits and individuals, the destruction of Lois Lerner (and other IRS employee's) emails and instant messaging, and their disciplinary action of an IRS employee who grotesquely violated the federal Hatch Act to campaign on IRS call center phones for a partisan political candidate. 

What we have here is a lot of kabuki dancing, a heaping pile of photo ops and a generous portion of canned ham talking points by members of Congress seeking 10 minutes of air-time for their next newsletter or social media post. 

What we don't have is real, substantive action except by two federal judges who have just ordered the IRS to fess up, under oath, about what happened to Lerner's emails and hard drive.

If you want real substantive change then please look closely at the 2014 candidates who want to represent you. If they say the support the FairTax, do they stand proud and can they defend it? 

If not, ask them why. If they have not made their position on tax reform known press the issue. This candidate may well determine the future of HR 25, the FairTax Act, which is before Congress right now.

HR 25 is the only tax replacement plan before Congress that defunds, disbands and eliminates the IRS. 

It is also the only tax reform plan that transfers power from Congress to the people.

The American people are beat down, seemingly anesthetized. When they are told that our government wasted $500 billion of their hard earned money, they don't even blink. Something is terribly wrong when this becomes the people's reaction. 

If you elect representatives who perpetuate the continued use of the income tax code as a political and financial weapon, then you have just become part of the problem.

Vow today that you will stand strong for the FairTax. Run, don't walk to candidate meetings. Make your voice heard. Make time for Congressional town halls. Ask critical questions and listen to Candidate answers. Canned ham responses are a sign of disrespect to you as a constituent. 

Don't allow yourself to become any further sedated, any further complacent. America needs you. The FairTax needs you. 

As Ronald Reagan once said, "You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done."

Until next week,

Urge Rep. Vern Buchanan to back FairTax bill, end IRSBradenton Herald

The Florida Legislature says end the IRS!

In a little noticed act at the end of this year's session, the Florida House and Senate called for an end to the U.S. income tax system. On May 22, Secretary of State Ken Detzner sent notice of that vote to President Obama, Vice President Biden (in his role as president of the Senate), House Speaker John Boehner, and all members of the Florida delegation.

Our legislators said all forms of federal income taxes should be replaced with pending federal legislation known as the "FairTax" (H.R.25/S.122).

If enacted, the FairTax would defund the IRS over a three-year period. It has 74 co-sponsors in the House and eight in the Senate, more than any other tax proposal.

The corrupt, inefficient IRS would be gone. In its place, state agencies, most of them experienced in sales tax collection, would be paid to collect the new federal consumption tax from all businesses.

The businesses, too, would be compensated for their paperwork in handling the new system…

- David Leake

How to provide the finishing blow too America= #MIGOP #Michigan #MI #tcot #sgp #NRC #DNC

Jeff Phillips~

Let me see if I have this right. The US Government intends to keep 120 illegal alien teenagers housed in Vassar, bringing new bus loads here every few weeks to replenish vacancies created by their ongoing efforts to place these kids with either relatives or foster care families--thereby displacing american kids in need of foster care.
Eventually these 16 and 17 year old kids will start turning 18. Once that happens then you'll have just as many of them showing up in a new bus load each month as you have turning 18 each month. Once they are 18 years old, under the "Gang of Eight" bill in the US Senate they would be allowed to take positions of employment with a special refugee status exempting the employer from paying for their ObamaCare and/or its $3000/year penalty that is otherwise charged to employers that fail to provide insurance to American citizen employees. Ted Cruz explains how this $3000/year penalty is more like $5000/year in net effect to one's bottom line after other taxes/costs are figured in.
So tax payers spend $100,000 per American citzen to provide their K-12 education before graduating ~94 of them per year into the workforce in Vassar, meanwhile we will end up with ~100+ illegal alien teenagers turning 18 every month or two in the same community, each of which will have first dibs on US employment since employers will have to pay an additional ~$5000/year to hire a US Citizen that has received a US education vs an illegal alien who is only just beginning to learn English, if at all.
And that my friends is your liberal definition of "equality".
