Addtional evidence from the IRS scandal that the country is being governed currently by gangsters:

IRS employees interviewed during a Treasury inspector general’s audit would not say who ordered them to target conservative groups, the inspector general told members of Congress on Monday.

“We did pose that question, and no one would acknowledge who, if anyone, provided that direction,” Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George said in response to a question from Representative Tom Graves (R., Ga.). George interviewed employees in the IRS field office in Cincinnati as part of his audit, which found that the agency inappropriately targeted conservative organizations seeking nonprofit status.

So, the gangland code of Omerta is in full force among the minions of the IRS.  Think about that for a minute.  These are public employees, sometimes called laughingly public servants.  They are part of an agency that routinely orders confiscation of the property of American citizens who owe the government money, and routinely refer criminal charges against those they claim are in willful criminal violation of the Tax Code.  These same people now believe they can become deaf, dumb and mute when it comes to wrongdoing within the IRS.  This is rapidly becoming much more than a scandal but rather a crisis of legitimacy for the Federal government.  How can the Feds expect citizens to obey the law when it is manifestly the case that the people involved in this criminal enterprise believe that they are above the law?

One agent has begun to understand that people are going to be tossed into jail for this and he or she is unwilling to be the fall guy:

Additionally, interviews with an IRS field agent involved in the division  that targeted Tea Party groups for additional vetting appear to contradict the  White House’s assertion that rogue agents — not the administration — were  behind the effort, according to partial transcripts released Sunday by the House  Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

The agent in the Cincinnati office, in which the targeting took place, told  congressional investigators that he or she was told by a supervisor in March  2010 to search for Tea Party groups applying for tax-exempt status and that “Washington, D.C., wanted some cases.”

The agent said that by April the office had held up roughly 40 cases and at  least seven were sent to Washington. The agent also said a second IRS employee  asked for information on two other specific applicants in which Washington was  interested.

When asked by congressional investigators about allegations and press reports  about two agents in Cincinnati essentially being responsible for the targeting,  the agent responded:

“It’s impossible. As an agent we are controlled by many, many people. We have  to submit many, many reports. So the chance of two agents being rogue and doing  things like that could never happen. … They were basically throwing us  underneath the bus.”

Go here to Fox News to read the rest.  The Code of Omerta frequently works for the Mafia only because it has a death sentence for its violation.  I assume that the Obama administration will not go that far against IRS agents who cooperate with investigators, but with this gang who really knows?

  1. Most noteworthy:

    “The Code of Omerta frequently works for the Mafia only because it has a death sentence for its violation. I assume that the Obama administration will not go that far against IRS agents who cooperate with investigators, but with this gang who really knows?”

    Livia Drusilla Augusta would be proud to know her methods live on.

  2. Let’s see if the regime terminates any of its button men and women.

    Again, IRS Scandal: Noonan: “What does it mean when half the country—literally half the country—understands that the revenue-gathering arm of its federal government is politically corrupt, sees them as targets, and will shoot at them if they try to raise their heads? That is the kind of thing that can kill a country, letting half its citizens believe that they no longer have full political rights.”

  3. “This is rapidly becoming much more than a scandal but rather a crisis of legitimacy for the Federal government.”

    I think we are past that point. Republicans in Congress are attempting to restore the legitimacy of the federal government. It has already been lost.

  4. It’s so very difficult to pray for the gangsters.
    I am trusting in Jesus by placing these thugs inside HIS most Sacred Heart, however a part of me is not so generous.
    Adolescent pray-er I suppose.
    For those mature prayer warriors….keep us in your prayers so anger is second to pity.

  5. Iowahawk simply states it: “The IRS is now basically an organized crime mob.”

    I would make one correction delete “IRS” insert “regime.”

    The Constitution and our liberties are in the rubbish heap.

    People need to delete the notion of misplaced mercy. Purely evil people that “circle the wagons”, and persist in and defend their crimes deserve condemnation, not mercy.

  6. Do Obama, Axelrod and Plouffe take us to be fools? What could Shulman’ have been discussing during his 157 visits to the White House (118 during the period in question)? He should have been slapped down when he told the subcommittee that the Easter Egg roll was one of the visits. It’s a case of the solution to the crime being in plain sight. It did not have to be stupidity as Plouffe said in the Sunday talk show, but sheer arrogance and the assumption that the Teflon president would not be challenged. They had successfully cowed Romney (think third debate), Boehner (think his repeated statements that “Obama is a nice guy just over his head”) and Roberts (think Obamacare is constitutional).. ‘.
