Seven years of college and all they know is targeting “patriots” and those educating about the Constitution and Bill of Rights

Seven years of college and all they know is targeting “patriots” and those educating about the Constitution and Bill of Rights

There is so much wrong with the IRS scandal at so many levels, it’s almost hard to know where to start.

It goes way beyond abuse of power, although it certainly is that.

It is, as Newt said this morning on Morning Joe, “culturally sick” (emphasis added):

“[Obama] also owes every tea party in America, every group called patriot, every group that wants to study the Constitution an apology,” Gingrich said. “How can you have an American government profile against the word patriot? I mean, there’s something culturally sick if the American government says ‘Boy, you put that word constitution in your name, we’re going to come after you.’ Again, this isn’t an administration that is shocked at the idea of profiling for terrorism but apparently had an entire part of the IRS that was profiling for patriotism. I find that to be very, very chilling in terms of our political liberty.”

This is part of the world view raised on the radical education which permeates our higher education system — and increasingly our lower education system — which views the United States as the greatest problem in the world, which seeks to snuff out patriotism, which considers teaching about the Constitution and Bill of Rights at best quaint and at worst a racist dog whistle seeking a return to slavery.

After the proverbial seven years of college, all they know is to demonize and target patriots and those who want to educate others about the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

If you have the slightest doubt, read through the Saturday Night Card Game series and College Insurrection.

This cultural sickness needs to be the focus, not just the actions of individuals at the IRS who are products of that cultural sickness.

Self-defense is something that even parasites have. Government workers tend to be liberal big government types. These IRS workers would have done this without instruction or encouragement just out of self-preservation. I have no doubt they were encouraged by higher ups.

Not only did this put a financial burden on these groups, but robbed them of time and energy when they were in the midst of an election campaign. They need to lose their jobs, their pensions and spend time in prison. Their supervisors who protected them need twice the punishment.

I agree 100%, but the solution must come from the ground up, as it certainly will not be coming from our so-called “leadership.”

We must all begin at the local level, scrutinizing school boards, curricula, and ensuring that ideology is something studied, not indoctrinated. Ensuring our children have teachers who encourage them to question “with boldness”, as Thomas Jefferson put it.

The sickness goes deep into our own homes as well. If we are being lax with morality, our children will see it and emulate our behaviors. We must ensure that a strong moral foundation does not falter, and that honesty, integrity, honor and altruism are rewarded, and incentivized while disreputable values and traits are expunged.

Obviously, the salient point is, who determines what are disreputable values and traits? Who will make these decisions? We must first hold ourselves accountable, and determine our own standing within an objective moral compass. If we are mired in relativistic “Who are you to judge?” type mindsets and world views, then we have no grounding to begin teaching others what is correct. As Jesus would say, “Take the log of your own eye, before you criticize the mote in others.”

Would I lie to you? Not under oath, probably, sorta’, maybe

When you talk with your children and grandchildren about what they are learning (and not learning) in public schools, ask yourself how this situation could possible arise in less than two generations. It may well be too late, but parents should be demanding that schools teach things like the Constitution, Civics which emphases duties and responsibilities rather than just rights and privileges, and Western Civilization which is more than a litany of evils. If that includes teaching Evolution as a theory along with Creationism, so be it.

Irony alert: wasn’t Obama a “professor” of Con Law? Probably spent the whole time teaching Marxism instead.

    It is written as thus – but no one has ever came forward & said …Yay he was my Lecturer. In this celeb worshipping culture one would think they would be popping up on every blog.

    I might have read at most 2 low level mentions.

Maybe soon, people will be ready to completely burn down the tax code…the source of all this perversion in our society and this abusive power.

And do we then really expect them to know, adhere, and obey the personally-taken Article VI oath to support and defend the Constitution?

“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be. The functionaries of every government have propensities to command at will the liberty and property of their constituents. There is no safe deposit for these but with the people themselves; nor can they be safe with them without information. Where the press is free, and every man able to read, all is safe.”
Jefferson letter to Colonel Charles Yancey (6 January 1816),

As intended, the public schools are eviscerating us,

I mean, there’s something culturally sick if the American government says ‘Boy, you put that word constitution in your name, we’re going to come after you.

Oh-Oh Newt, another “dog whistle” for Matthews, Al, Toure, et al..

I read this blog first, then I clicked on memeorandum where the lead link is from the New York Times article titled, “IRS Focus on Conservative Groups Give GOP Issue to Seize On”.

I should read that article before commenting, but I can’t help myself. The headline is disgusting and repulsive. If the story takes the angle suggested by the title, the NYT is framing the issue first and foremost in terms of the political horserace aspect rather than for what it is: a tyrannical government bureaucracy overreaching its lawful power and intruding on the lives of the citizens it is supposed to serve.

The headline is appalling.

We’re well on our way to a One World low information populace that is enthralled by media and has no regard for something so restrictive as truth.

    Liberty be damned! I don’t care about that old fashioned stuff. I want to know about Kim Kardashian’s butt size, how Lohan is doing in rehab, and ……

“Again, this isn’t an administration that is shocked at the idea of profiling for terrorism…”

Is that what Newt said/meant? I would think he meant to say the opposite.

Defund and disband the IRS. They are not mentioned in the Constitution. The are extra-Constitutional, and they disdain it. Therefore, get rid of them and institute a flat tax.

Boehner doesn’t have the balls to ram this down his golfing buddy Barry’s throat. That’s what needs to be done.

Another thing, no more heathen Islamic invocation/curses over the bodies of our warriors who fell in battle. Every man deserves the right to be laid to rest according to his beliefs and not according to some hellish nonsense that the POTUS believes.

    There will always be an IRS, even under a flat or other tax system.

    It might not be recognizable as compared to what we have (and it should not be).

    The 16th Amendment MUST be repealed.

Professor:

Once again I appreciate the great job you are doing with LI and CI. Great post here!!

I’m not sure where to ask this…

Re: The “filmmaker” who has been jailed over “probation violations.”

In law, there is a principle about the fruit of a poisonous tree… If the “filmmaker” came under suspicion based on the administration’s lies and deceptions would that be helpful in getting him released?

PD

Michelle Bachman claims the IRS targeting revelation is just cover fire in hopes of diversion from the Benghazi mess.
Anything to pull the attention and focus away… and it better be good.

    The article I read – in the British press iirc – has it harsher than that. As a Taxation Masters she does have veracity on this & it took as a fact her IRS accusations . Then it moved on to the Benghazi angle.

    Bachman in overdrive !

    This is tailor made for Michelle to exploit.

If you spend as much time as I do immersed in the implementing documents and reports involving the Common Core in the US but also these related ed reforms globally you quickly see just how much anger there is at the US Constitution instead of the idea of Global Citizenship. http://www.invisibleserfscollar.com/mandating-global-citizenship-mindsets-by-assessing-whether-students-adopt-social-altruism/ explains that.

Since that post I have been able to determine that the CCSSO–the Council of State School Officers who supposedly sponsor the Common Core have set up a Subsidiary, EdSteps, to push the Global Competence aspect of the Common Core. They are also the entity working with the Asia Society and world savvy on the related ideas of global consciousness as a requisite mindset of future students. Mindset as in values and beliefs that filter daily experience.

All over the world, including the US, the curriculum and so-called tests are looking to create a belief that citizenship is about the responsibilities we have to the government and each other. That an emphasis on the individual is no longer acceptable and that none of us are ever to forget our interdependence with each other.

So the IRS was targeting groups that might interfere in a coordinated manner with the message and themes being created in an organized, highly coordinated manner, in the classrooms of the 21st century.

Not just K-12 and higher ed but preschool and professional schools as well. I have had conversations with law profs and Deans that the accreditors are pushing them to teach about the Common Good obligation as an intrinsic component of the law now.

Benghazi and IRS. Can’t deny I’m enjoying watching Obama take two straight rights in the nose.

This IRS thing, coming as it does right as the Benghazi thing is gaining traction, may well be the canary in the coal mine, the trip wire that wakes up the American people and forces the MSM to do its job.

There is no way the IRS under Obama can be trusted to enforce Obamacare law, none. The IRS cannot be trusted and cannot be reformed in 7 months, 2014, when Obamacare kicks in. Time to think about a country-wide civil disobedience campaign. Employers and individuals should simply refuse to comply with any of it, especially mandated info-sharing on stuff like how many guns you own, etc. No way I’m providing that to HHS when IRS is being deformed into some Gestapo-like agency.

After all, the illegal immigrant problem shows us what happens to people when large numbers refuse to obey the law – nothing. In fact, play it right and you get rewarded for your criminality.

Civil disobedience. Refuse to comply with IRS-enforced Obamacare at all levels.

Any attempt to subvert the Bill of Rights and The Constitution is an act of treason or sedition. The government and its agents, including Obama, are not immune from these charges.
