Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) clearly has lost his patience as have most Americans with this charade. When he made the decision to adjourn the meeting since she was not going to testify, Representative Elijah Cummings (D-MD) threw a royal "hissyfit", claiming that he had a right to speak and that he was outraged at what Issa was trying to do in a democracy. Reall, Mr. Cummings? The time for opening statements was over and since you asked to present a question and instead went off on a tirade, the Chairman was spot on in shutting you down. And after the way that Pelosi dictated action and denied basic decency to Republicans when she ran the House with an iron fist, you of all people certainly have nothing to complain about. Turnabout is fair play in politics.
But the heart of the matter is this. That the organization that is clearly supposed to be non-partisan and fair in enforcement of of tax laws is itself corrupt to the core is certainly no longer in doubt to any fair minded American. Singling out Conservative groups for harassment in an attempt to silence their political beliefs is illegal, yet that is what has been done and continues to be done. And for the Democrats in Congress to try and redirect the subject to Issa and his manner of presiding over the failed testimony is merely an attempt to grandstand for the MSM which is, of course, in the tank for the Obama Administration and will do anything to protect him and his cause. They want desperately to take the lights off of Lerner who presents a very sordid picture of herself and the IRS merely by the tone and attitude displayed during her appearance. What a sad state of affairs we Americans find with our government.
It's really amazing, but sad, to watch the disintegration of the government of the United States from one of hope and light to one of darkness and despair as judged by its priorities and reduced capabilities. On the one hand, the nation is powerless to respond to international tyrants and purveyors of evil. The Middle East is in shambles, Mother Russia is flexing her muscles in a move to return to her greatness, Europe is at their mercy due to reliance on the East for natural gas and America is at a total standstill due to the Administration's attempts to transform America into something that the overwhelming majority do not want.
America uses its dwindling power by applying it against her own citizens instead. To use the IRS like a bunch of jackboot thugs to attack and threaten those citizens who merely voice their first amendment rights is just one example of the rising tyranny and is an outrage freedom loves everywhere. All Americans should stand up, take notice, and refuse to accept this as a way of doing business. A storm of actions that will cripple America, be it from the DOJ, EPA, or directly from the White House grows daily and men and women of faith and purpose must stand against these travesties for America to survive. And there is no more important place to start than cleaning up the IRS. Taking action against Lerner should be the first of many steps and hopefully Congress will take this action soon.
America, when we have a government that sees it's own people as the enemy is a sign of just how serious the corruption and rot is in Washington today. The term public servants no longer exists; it is clear that they see themselves as masters instead. Unless we as a people unite with a single voice in opposition, the American Experiment will surely die an inglorious death to be replaced by oppression and tyranny. Are we going to stand for that? The jury is still out but an important election is coming this year. Use this election as a way of beginning the take back of America. It's our best hope.
