The IRS proves the Tea Party Right with their Attack on the Tea Party

Politics 101

The Democrats lost Big in the 2010 Midterm Elections because of Tea Party Conservatives and Citizens United

“Trust us.  We’re the federal government.”  Two sentences that really don’t go together these days.  Something more appropriate would be, “Do as we say.  And think like we think.  If you don’t, trust us, we will make your life unpleasant.  Such as targeting excessive IRS scrutiny on your sorry ass.”  Yes, that sounds more appropriate.  At least, based on the actions of the federal government.

The 2010 midterm elections really shocked and dismayed the liberal Democrats.  In 2010 approximately 21% of the population identified themselves as liberals.  About 35% identified themselves as moderates.  And about 40% identified themselves as conservative (see Conservatives Remain the Largest Ideological Group in U.S. posted on Gallup).  Which is why after passing Obamacare on pure party lines the Democrats loss was so big in the 2010 midterm elections.  And it became clear to liberal Democrats that they cannot win the debate in the arena of ideas.  No.  If they were to maintain their power and transform the country against the will of the people they had to rig the game in their favor.

The Democrats lost big in the 2010 midterms because of Tea Party conservatives.  Those people who admired the Founding Fathers.  The Constitution.  Limited government.  Laissez-faire capitalism.  And the rule of law.  The things that made the United States of America great.  And things the current administration is NOT a big fan of.  For they want to expand the federal government into European socialism.  With a great and mighty federal government.  So those in the ruling class can shape the nation into their image.  Not the Founding Fathers’ image.  And to do this they have to eliminate public enemy number one.  No, not al Qaeda.  But the Tea Party.  And denying their right to free speech using the power of the IRS was one way to achieve that.

The Obama Administration ordered Military Forces in Tripoli to Stand Down because it Wouldn’t Fit the Narrative

Ever since the Supreme Court decision Citizens United (2010) ruled that corporations were people the liberal Democrats had a bug up their backside.  Because they enjoyed collecting huge sums from unions who were, apparently, people, too.  And the liberals’ favorite tool for attacking business interests.  As unions supported them in their anti-business agenda with lots of cash.  To help the liberals regulate and transfer more wealth from private sector to the public sector.  While forcing union-friendly policies on businesses.  To protect their friends in the unions.  To keep a large portion of those unions dues flowing to Democrat coffers.

Liberals blame Citizens United for the rise of the Tea Party which led to their defeat in the 2010 midterms.  After 2010 it was payback time.  When liberal nonprofits filed for their tax-exempt status the IRS granted them within months.  Whereas the IRS delayed the application process for conservative groups.  Especially any with ‘Tea Party’ in their name.  Demanding a list of their political donors.  What books they read.  Who they associated with.  Whether they would attack Planned Parenthood.  Etc.  Inappropriate.  And illegal.  This harassment went on for months.  Preventing these organizations from collecting donations and exercising their First Amendment right of free speech.  And when the IRS collected any information on donors they gave it to liberal websites to publicize and attack.  Discouraging further contributions.  And limiting opposing political ads in the run-up to the 2012 election.  Helping President Obama and Democrats.  While hurting Mitt Romney and Republicans.

The Democrats have a perception that they are strong on domestic issues but weak on national defense.  Which is why President Obama made the decision to kill Osama bin Laden when the opportunity came.  To show he was strong on national defense.  In fact, with the killing of bin Laden President Obama said al Qaeda was in retreat.  Because he fought the War on Terror better and smarter than George W. Bush did.  The 2012 campaign narrative was ‘Osama bin Laden is dead.  And General Motors is alive’.  Which is why the Obama administration told Ambassador Stevens he could not have more security in Benghazi.  Because it wouldn’t fit the narrative.  It’s why the Obama administration ordered military forces in Tripoli to stand down and not assist those under attack in Benghazi.  Who probably could have saved the two Americans killed some 7 hours after the White House Situation Room received word of an attack in Benghazi.  Because it wouldn’t fit the narrative.

Like-Minded People don’t Need Orders when they Share the same Burning Passion to Defeat Conservatism

Benghazi is a political nightmare for the administration.  First of all they ignored the deteriorating conditions in Benghazi (it was so unsafe that the British pulled their people out just before the attack on the American mission).  Then four Americans died.  Because this administration was weak on national defense.  There was the stand-down order.  President Obama disappeared during the attack.  And, of course, there was the YouTube video the Obama administration blamed.  Not a terrorist attack.  Because, again, that wouldn’t fit the narrative.  We should reelect president Obama because al Qaeda was in retreat.  So they weren’t assaulting Americans in Benghazi.  It was just people protesting that YouTube video that got out of hand.  And pulled rocket propelled grenades and mortars from their pockets and started killing Americans with them.

At press conferences reporters ask questions on Benghazi and the IRS harassment of conservatives.  Which the Obama administration doesn’t answer.  Because there is an ongoing investigation.  Or they simply state they don’t know.  But they insist that they will get to the bottom of it.  Figure out what happened.  And make sure it doesn’t happen again.  As well as insisting that there is no political bias in any of these scandals.  Just a rogue employee or two.  Which is hard to believe.  Because whenever there is a scandal there is a common element to them.  They hurt conservatives.  Making it more difficult for them to win elections.  While helping liberal Democrats.  Making it easier for them to win elections.  Without fail.  So it’s hard to believe that there is no political motive behind them.  Especially considering the 2010 midterm elections.  The rise of the Tea Party.  And liberals’ inability to win in the arena of ideas.  Requiring them to cheat wherever they can to win elections.  To maintain their power and transform the country against the will of the people.

The president doesn’t govern.  He only campaigns.  Always fighting those who are against his policies.  And everything bad that ever happens is because of this opposition he is fighting against.  As if he hasn’t been president for the past 4+ years.  But these scandals are bad.  Especially the IRS scandal.  Where people on the Left are even comparing it to the Nixon administration.  So his defenders say it’s not him.  It’s some people in the vast federal government.  That is just too big for the president to know everything that’s going on.  No one could.  This is the defense of the president that wants to make the federal government even bigger.  The government is too big.

The president hates the Citizens United ruling.  And the Tea Party.  Blaming both for the Democrats losing the House in the 2010 midterms.  These are his feelings.  And he hires people who think and feel like he does.  So even if he didn’t direct his administration to do these things he might as well have.  For these are universal feelings among liberal Democrats.  Where no orders are necessary.  Because like-minded people will take initiative.  Either eager to please.  Or because they share the same burning passion to defeat conservatism and enlarge the federal government.  So more smart bureaucrats can manage every aspect of our lives.  Even breaking the law to help their cause.  Because they feel the administration will approve of their actions.  Even protect them if they get caught.  So these scandals are not so much a reflection of an administration out of control.  But of a political party out of control.  Who have grown the federal government so large that no one person can know what it is doing.  So the defenders of President Obama are right.  The government is too large.  And we need to reduce the size of it.  Just as the Tea Party would have said.  Had the IRS not hindered their ability to exercise their First Amendment right during the 2012 election.  Which may be the only reason why the Democrats retained control of the Senate.  Or why President Obama won reelection.  Because they cheated.  Which may be the only way they can win elections when only 21% of the people think like they do.
