Dear #IRS Commissioner Koskinen: “Nobody Believes You”

 

Koskinen - IRS5

Have you ever wondered what the operative definition of “supercilious” was? How about “imperious“? “High-handed“, perhaps? Well, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen’s testimony today is as good an example of all of those as I could have provided previously:

“…I have a long career, that’s the first time anybody has said they don’t believe me…”

Based on the laughable claims you are currently making, Mr. Koskinen, I’d offer that such a description is likely long, long overdue:

Ryan points out the central irony of the IRS, an agency which routinely holds us each responsible for the retention of every last receipt for up to seven years under threat of fines and/or imprisonment, now asking us to shrug our shoulders over the “loss” of the email from THE central figure in a corruption scandal, …as well as the email from six others also involved. Oh yeah: and then they destroyed the hard drives.

Whoops.

Sorry, Johnny. This isn’t “my dog ate my homework“.

This is more along the lines of “my dog burned down the house where I normally keep my homework. Yes, I’d left copies of my homework at my six friends’ homes, but here’s the thing: my dog burned down my friends’ homes, too. You doubt me?? How dare you question my integrity!!

This White House and its Corrupt Comrades are presently holding themselves above the laws of our land, quite literally. And when we and numerous others have drawn the comparison between the IRS’ feigned “…Those emails you guys wanted so badly have mysteriously ‘vanished’, ha-ha-ha-ha...” and then to Richard Nixon’s 18 minutes of missing tape, it’s because they’re both absurdly obvious and contemptible lies.

When this story first broke I made the following observation, which apparently gets truer by the day:

“…They’re lying, we KNOW they’re lying, and THEY know we know they’re lying. And they don’t care…”

Translation: we allow this injustice to stand at our nation’s peril.

We need an investigation, a REAL one. Because if the IRS (or any federal agency entrusted with such all-encompassing responsibility and power over the citizenry) can get away with this, then we are no longer free citizens: we are barely more than “subjects”.

And we’d better start understanding, and expecting, the difference.

  1. What was most disgusting about today’s hearing was the Democrats attempt to portray the IRS as the victim. I only hope people will perceive this as the Democrats allying themselves with the IRS. If so, November is going to be a very bad month for the Dems.

    • 😉 Yes: the poor, poor, unfairly maligned IRS: however will they survive such mean-spirited assaults on their character?

      **sniff**

      Back here on Earth, however, the Left may well have bitten-off more than they can chew, if they’re gonna try to change the public’s impression of the IRS into one of “victim”.
      They’d have an easier time of rehabilitating Hitler’s image….., and I’m only being partially sarcastic when I say that.

  2. Loved your post! Re=posted it on fb.

    EXCELLENT!

    “…They’re lying, we KNOW they’re lying, and THEY know we know they’re lying. And they don’t care…”
    OBVIOUS AND NOT REALLY WELL KNOWN BY MY LIB FRIENDS. 😢

    • Thanks, Tannngl.
      At this point, it takes willful ignorance and fair amount of determination to NOT see the corruption in this Administration. Amazingly, much of the media seems up to the task…..

    The problem is that we will NEVER get a REAL investigation. The DOJ is taking a “nothing to see here” position, and BHO says there’s nary more than a “smidgen” of corruption. Let’s face it: the inmates have taken over the asylum. It’s disgusting.
