The IRS‘ auditor told Congress this week that it stands by its determination that conservative groups were uniquely singled out for special scrutiny by the tax agency, rebutting Democrats’ contention that liberal groups also were targeted according to the Washington Times.
The Treasury Department’s inspector general for tax administration (TIGTA) sent a letter Wednesday to congressional Democrats telling them that while several liberal groups may have gotten extra scrutiny, the IRS didn’t necessarily target those — but it did do so for conservative groups.
Is Obama our new King George?
Worshipers of President Barack H. Obama should not read the article by Dr. Milton R. Wolf that recently appeared in The Washington Times. Leftists may pop-off in rage as facts contrary to their religious zeal for top-down control over those pesky unwashed masses is shown to be what history has always proven – tyranny.
Wolf makes a compelling case. Conservatives have been saying much the same for decades, but as the old saying goes, those (idiots of the Left) that don’t consider history are often condemned to repeat it. Of course, the beloved leader’s wide wife Machelle said something about Americans needing to relearn history (or was that consume propaganda) before she was promptly hushed by handlers.
Back to the awakening as Dr. Wolf wrote:
Americans are beginning to recognize the disturbing similarities between President Obama and the fallen Richard Nixon, but the comparison that may matter more is between Mr. Obama and King George III.
“He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance,” in the words of the Declaration of Independence.
King George’s assault on the Americans’ natural freedoms was oppressive, intolerable and deserving of a revolution. The truth is, the intrusion, restriction and outright harassment that our government subjects us to today is far beyond what the colonists faced from their tyrannical king. If it was tyranny in 1776, then, by God, it is tyranny today.
