Several months after President Obama placed
John Koskinen into the position of IRS
Commissioner, allegedly to investigate the
agency's political targeting scandal. All he
has done since his appointment, however,
has been to pick up where now former IRS
official Lois Lerner left off, being recalcitrant,
obstreperous, obnoxious, and arrogant in
his refusal to cooperate with the congressional
investigation into the IRS' bullying of groups
and individual citizens daring to hold a
different political point of view than that of
Earlier this month Koskinen put in an appearance
in Congress in which he dodged questions from
House investigators, threw verbal darts back at
them, and defended the illegal actions of the
least trusted and most feared governmental agency
in the United States. The former Fannie Mae
executive has not only placed himself in the
crosshairs of Capitol Hill Republicans, but has
drawn the ire of some Democrats there as well.
He refuses to even acknowledge that the agency
which he heads did anything wrong, let alone illegal.
He even denied that the IRS was targeting conser-
vative organizations such as various Tea Party groups!
The lying and the arrogance fueling it steals one's
breath! Under his leadership, this motley outfit
ignored congressional demands for documents and
witnesses, all the while claiming that the IRS
"lost" Lois Lerner's e-mail (Remember that dodge?
That one ranks up there with the child's excuse
for not having his completed homework assignment
for his teacher: "My dog ate it"!). He further stated
in testimony that there were no backup tapes for
the e-mails, but it was discovered that there are
at least 760 server drives that may contain copies
of same. And Koskinen nearly hit the ceiling when
congressional investigators asked why Lerner's
BlackBerry was wiped after(!) the investigation
was initiated. Would that Koskinen had shown
such indignation at Lois Lerner and the other IRS
employees who so disregarded and disrespected
the law and the rights of the people that they targeted!
It seems very likely that President Obama had chosen
John Koskinen to take charge at the IRS because he
would stonewall uncomfortable questions in a
congressional hearing. Remember, this is an admini-
stration which does not consider dissent to be patriotic;
better that dissent be shown to Republican admini-
strations, not to almighty, pedestal-occupying
Democrat ones! Don't you peasants DARE doubt or
question the great and all-knowing Democrats if
you know what's good for you is their attitude.
Why, that would be like a lowly mortal in ancient
Greece questioning the wisdom of the gods on Mount
Olympus! In the meantime, what has transpired here
so far is looking more and more like a cover-up by
Team Obama. The Justice Department announced that
it would conduct its own investigation, but then named
Barbara Bosserman, an Obama donor, to be its head.
Clever, but it gets better: Justice announced to Congress
that its Public Integrity Unit (no, really, the Justice Depart-
ment really does HAHAHAHA! have HEEHEEHEE! such
a HOHO! unit HAW!) would also be active in the investiga-
tion. The appointed head of that team, Jack Smith, worked
with Lerner in 2010 to look at possibly building cases
against 501(c)(4) nonprofits, conservative ones of course!
Smith's subordinate, Richard Pilger, worked with her to
obtain a huge database on those very organizations.
Nothing to see here, Justice inferred; move along now.
Given all this, it is as clear as Waterford crystal that
the regime is trying to stymie the progress of the IRS
probe conducted by Congress through 2016, when Obama
and Company will pack its bags and, so they hope,
hand over the keys to the White House to another Democrat.
These horrible people make President Nixon and his crew
look like choir boys in comparison. Watergate was disgrace-
ful, but for the IRS to serve as the hatchet men and women
for Obama and his cabal, going after anyone who doesn't
share their hope to change America into a putrid socialist
pit dwarfs having a few "plumbers" break into the opposition
party's campaign headquarters and erasing 18 1/2 minutes
of chatter about related matters from a White House tape.
Your concerned Peasant hopes that we can change the
course of our nation's government, and with it that of our
nation, in 2016.
