“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed –if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into history and became truth. Who controls the past,” ran the Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.” – George Orwell, 1984
Among the many serious issues President Donald Trump faces is the obvious corruption within the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Last year in the thick of the battle for the presidency between Democrat Hillary Clinton and the victorious Trump, Conservative lawmakers were up-in-arms over reports emanating from records obtained directly from the IRS and documents lawmakers received from watchdog groups such as Judicial Watch.
As a result of seeing overwhelming evidence of corruption, misconduct and harassment aimed at President Barack Obama’s so-called “enemies list,” Republican lawmakers proposed a total revamping of the IRS from top to bottom. The GOP members of congress accused the agency of being a political arm of the Democratic Party rather than a nonpartisan, government tax collection agency, according to the House of Representatives Oversight Committee’s report titled, “Making Sure Targeting Never Happens: Getting Politics Out of the IRS and Other Solutions.”
The Obama administration made the tax season more painful for some American citizens but it was a bonanza for illegal aliens who not only broke laws sneaking into the country but also worked illegally, at least until President Barack Obama gave them special exemptions from immigration law by executive fiat. According to Internal Revenue Service (IRS) top administrator, illegal aliens received refunds that were up to twice the amount citizens got back — a literal monetary bonanza!
IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, who some Americans believe has a casual relationship with the truth confirmed that illegal aliens granted de facto amnesty by President Obama’s unilateral decrees will be eligible to receive extra refunds from the IRS for money they earned while working illegally.
The immigration lawbreakers — even those who committed the felony of re-entering the United States after being deported — will be given Social Security cards, which means they can go back and submit tax returns for up to three years to request a tax Credit. The IRS estimates that illegal aliens received billions of dollars in additional payments, despite many of them being “paid-off-the-books.”
“This whole deal is being done quietly by the IRS and the Obama administration and most of the legacy news media are going along with the scheme by either ignoring the illegal alien tax refunds or by being disingenuous in their coverage,” former police investigator and corporate security and risk management director, Walter Edsel Davis said at the time. “This is another case of Obama lawlessness and the news media are aiding and abetting that lawlessness,” Davis noted.
Commissioner Koskinen, who took over the job in the midst of a far reaching scandal, stated that there are legal limits regarding how far they can go back, but he added that his “current interpretation of laws would allow [illegal immigrants] to claim the Earned Income Tax Credit, even though past employers never reported paying salaries to these workers. Only those with a valid Social Security number and those being handed valid numbers by Obama are permitted to claim their tax reforms.
However, some critics have numerous questions that are not being answered by Koskinen, his subordinates or anyone in the Obama White House. While Obama and his minions claim that up to 5 million illegal immigrants are expected to earn “deferred action,” and receive federal work permits, some lawmakers and pundits say the number may be as high as 7 million illegal aliens.
“The latest giveaway isn’t the only tax credit to given arbitrarily to so-called ‘undocumented’ workers. The agency that practically puts a gun to the heads of citizens is already distributing billions of taxpayer dollars to the illegal immigrants under the child tax credit, no questions asked,” said political consultant Michael Baker. “If these illegals are undocumented how do we know they’re not passing children around so they can get maximum tax credits?” he asked.
And what is the answer from the IRS? They lament the fact that its debatable which illegal aliens qualify for child tax credits, “so to be on the safe side they pay it out to all illegal immigrants,” according the IRS officials. Immigration activists and politicians who favor amnesty defend what appears to be topsy-turvy reasoning by defending the discriminatory tax refund program. They claim it doesn’t discriminate against citizens who pay their taxes and that many of the children being claimed for tax credits are born in the U.S. and are therefore citizens, even if their parents are here illegally. And, therefore, they are entitled to the cash bonanza.
One of the Republican proposals that angered Obama and his minions was the suggestion that the Affordable Care Act implementation be taken away from the IRS and given to a more nonpartisan group that’s free from White House manipulation. However, ACA may be a moot point since it is either imploding by itself or it will be rescinded and replaced with a more conservative approach — in other words no Democrats with their hands in the pockets of the American people.
In addition, the Senate Judiciary Committee found evidence of conspiracy between taxpayer-supported Planned Parenthood Federation of America and its affiliates, since PPFA knew about the violations and changed oversight procedures in order to allow the violations to continue. The Judiciary Committee’s findings are available in a Majority Staff Report. The IRS, although quick to investigate nonprofit groups that are pro-life and Christian, has never investigated Planned Parenthood.
“Many of our readers are aware of our continuing battle with the IRS and the many articles we have written taking them to task. But we’re just one IRS story. Millions, and we do mean millions, of Americans have fallen victim to this rogue, inept, out-of-control, bureaucratic agency that is relentless in its pursuit of your tax dollars to the point of abuse, harassment, blackmail, coercion, bungling mismanagement, law-creating, law breaking, corruption and blatant criminality. If you think you are protected from the IRS by the 4th, 5th and 14th Amendments against illegal search and seizures, violations of due process or constitutional rights, or protected against self-incrimination, think again. Every time you sign the “Jurat” statement at the bottom of Form 1040 under penalty of perjury, you have abrogated your 4th and 5th Amendment rights and opened yourself up to being penalized or charged with a crime because the Internal Revenue Code is basically unconstitutional, complex and is rife with errors, omissions and conflicts.” – Ron Ewart, President of The National Association of Rural Landowners (NARLO)
