By now, everyone is aware that the IRS has been caught red-handed conducting politically-motivated audits of conservative non-profit groups. Non-profits that taught the Constitution or even mildly criticized the federal government were targeted for special scrutiny, and the IRS demanded they turn over names of all their donors and volunteers.
“The IRS came under fire on Friday when its Office of Inspector General released a draft of an investigative timeline showing that the agency had played political favorites with nonprofit groups seeking tax-exempt status,” reports the Daily Mail.
“In 2010, according to that investigation, the Cincinnati-based IRS office responsible for vetting tax-exempt applications began targeting groups with ‘Tea Party or similar’ words in their names — including words like ‘patriots’ and ‘9/12’ — for tighter scrutiny.”
The Obama administration, in other words, has been using the IRS as a political weapon to silence dissent and threaten political enemies.
“This is obviously disturbing,” said Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Committee, in a USA Today article. “Coming within a week of revelations that the White House lied to the American people about the Benghazi attacks and the IRS targeted conservative Americans for their political beliefs, Americans should take notice that top Obama Administration officials increasingly see themselves as above the law and emboldened by the belief that they don’t have to answer to anyone.”
Documents reveal the IRS scheme stretched all the way to Washington D.C. IRS offices
Apologists of criminal government have described all this criminal IRS activity as nothing but the “mistakes of a local IRS office” in Cincinnati. But documents just acquired by the Washington Post reveal that the punitive scheme went all the way up the ladder to IRS offices in Washington D.C.
“Internal Revenue Service officials in Washington and at least two other offices were involved with investigating conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status, making clear that the effort reached well beyond the branch in Cincinnati that was initially blamed,” reports the Washington Post.
…details of the IRS’s efforts to target conservative groups reached the highest levels of the agency in May 2012, far earlier than has been disclosed, according to Republican congressional aides briefed by the IRS and the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration(TIGTA) on the details of their reviews.
Countdown to January, 2014
Beginning January, 2014, the IRS will become the enforcement arm of Obamacare. Part of this enforcement will include demanding private health insurance status information and ID numbers from all Americans. Anyone who refuses to provide this information will be financially penalized (i.e. “fined”) an amount that increases each year until it reaches a penalty of $2,085 per family or 2.5% of your income, whichever is greater.
How much will it cost you to acquire this Obama-mandated health insurance, exactly? According to cost estimates from 17 of the nation’s largest insurance companies, health insurance premiums are set to skyrocket 100% to 400% under Obamacare.
This means whatever you’re paying now for health insurance — say $1,000 a month — double it to $2,000 a month and you begin to get an idea of what Obamacare is really going to cost you. It might actually cost you $4,000 per month!
But that’s only the beginning. Given that the IRS has proven it is a criminal enterprise that uses its power to intimidate political opponents of the Obama administration, a very likely tactic to be pursued by the agency will include punitive scrutiny of any who refuse to participate in Obamacare mandates.
If you refuse to get Obama-mandated health insurance, in other words, and opt to pay the IRS penalty instead, you may be subjected to extra scrutiny by the IRS in exactly the same way conservative non-profits were targeted by the IRS over the last four years.
The IRS will, of course, deny their investigations are politically motivated, but after all the recent revelations about the IRS targeting political opponents of Obama, who will believe them?
Do you really want the IRS digging into your medical history?
All this questions the wisdom of putting the IRS in charge of enforcing a health care law. It’s going to force all taxpayers to turn over personal medical details to an agency that has already admitted violating federal laws and abusing its power to punish political enemies of the current administration.
Have you ever thought about the enormous evil that could be accomplished by the IRS building a database of all Americans’ health insurance records? This information could be covertly used by the government to do things like identify everyone taking antidepressant drugs then have them all declared mentally unstable and therefore unqualified to own firearms (as an example).
Once the IRS has your health insurance ID information — which you are required to provide this coming January — it could use that data to discover if you’re seeing an infertility doctor, being treated for cancer, taking antipsychotic drugs, seeking medical treatment for substance abuse, were beaten or molested by a family member, were the victim of a rape assault or any other detail in your medical records. Is this the kind of information you trust the IRS to have on you?
And yes, it really is a simple matter for the government to gather all this data. Once you hand over your health insurance ID, the government can simply demand the complete medical records of all Americans from top insurers, then use your social security number to match your income and home address to your detailed medical records.
Feeling violated yet? Obamacare subjects us all to government data-rape.
Obamacare was passed when most people foolishly trusted the government
Obamacare was passed into law during a time when most Americans foolishly believed their government would never lie to them. They trusted Obama to be honest and tell them the truth. They trusted his administration to do what was best for the citizens and the country.
Heck, most people believed Obamacare was going to give them “free health care,” remember? That was the big selling point of the whole thing. What a total con job…
Since then, the blinders have come off. People are waking up in droves, and most Americans now realize the Obama administration is wholly dishonest and deceptive. Many people believe it is the most dangerous and destructive administration ever to hold power in American history.
The Benghazi fiasco and the IRS being caught red-handed both prove to the American people that the Obama administration is full of liars who cannot be trusted. Suddenly in that context the idea that the IRS is going to be running Obamacare is horrifying. We’re going to put this agency in charge of gathering, archiving and then protecting our personal health insurance records? We’re going to let the prying eyes of the IRS have full access to private medical and biological details that we wouldn’t even share with friends and family members?
Something is terribly wrong with this picture.
Obamacare may cost democrats the Senate in 2014 and the White House in 2016
Here’s my prediction in all this: Obamacare is so onerous, so costly, so unjust and so widely hated by such a wide swath of Americans that it’s going to cost democrats hugely in the 2014 and 2016 elections.
Consider these facts about the upcoming 2014 Senate race. The US Senate currently has 53 democrats, 45 republicans and 2 independents. Democrats are clutching to a majority that could be lost if just five seats flip:
• There are 35 seats up for election in 2014. Twenty-one of those are currently held by democrats.
• Most states where senators are up for election are Republican-leaning states.
• By the time the November, 2014 election arrives, people will have already been forced to comply with Obamacare penalties on April 15th of 2014. This will be remembered on voting day.
• Voters will also remember democrats’ attempts to take away their legal and lawful firearms via unconstitutional gun control legislation. The pro Second Amendment vote is going to be powerful and determined in 2014.
• As Obama’s scandals continue to grow, voter disgust will translate into an anti-Obama / anti-democrat vote at the polls. Benghazi is only the tip of the iceberg…
By the way, don’t misinterpret this article to think I’m rooting for Republicans in 2014. Republicans, too, have proven they will operate as total criminals if they are in control. I only support people who defend and protect liberty, regardless of their party affiliation. Right now that happens to be senators like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, but I welcome any democrats, too, who wish to stop behaving like traitors to the United States and start defending the Bill of Rights for a change.
In just 18 months, we’ll all have a chance to vote out 35 traitors in the U.S. Senate and replace them with representatives who will uphold their sworn oath to defend the Constitution. For the first time, Natural News plans to endorse U.S. Senate candidates who have solid voting records on key issues like GMO food labeling, vaccine choice for parents and protecting the liberties of the American people. It may be a very short list, but we’re going to highlight those who have earned it.
