IRS Scandal The left sees James Taylor.... (Part 1 of 3)

James Tay­lor: This is the works! Either we’re out of busi­ness or big­ger than ever before.

Mr Smith Goes to Wash­ing­ton 1939

I’ve talked a bit in the past of the cul­tural divide between the right and the left for a long time and as I look at the IRS scan­dal never has this con­flict been more apparent.

Day by day the infor­ma­tion is slowly leak­ing out via tes­ti­mony, state­ment and basic reporting.

On twit­ter we are repeat­edly see­ing the non-​professional left declar­ing their approval of the tac­tics used by IRS against the Tea Party, anti-​abortion groups, pro-​marriage groups etc etc etc. The Pro­fes­sional left varies from the tepid (it’s wrong BUT) to the Joan Wal­shs of the world (scan­dal? what scandal).

Some on the right might not under­stand why the admin­is­tra­tion and their allies don’t just come totally clean, get this behind the and take the short terms hit, what they don’t under­stand is they are play­ing for much big­ger stakes. They are play­ing to cement the power in a more per­ma­nent way.

Just imag­ine big Gov­ern­ment being able to actively stop those who would com­bat it with lit­tle fear.

It’s the kind of thing that can, in their minds, change the bal­ance of power in the coun­try per­ma­nently . If the polit­i­cal right can be restrained by gov­ern­men­tal forces and their con­tributes intim­i­dated the pos­si­bil­i­ties of the left are endless.

But Dat­e­chGuy”, you say, “What about the rule of lawWon’t peo­ple get pun­ished?

HA! If there are no con­se­quences short of a few low level employ­ees fired and maybe a mid level bureau­crat tak­ing the fall, per­haps serv­ing a year or two in a min­i­mum secu­rity jail then qui­etly re-​hired by a left­ist think tank then there is absolutely no rea­son for this prac­tice to be repeated again and again by a gov­ern­ment of the left until not only Tea Party groups, but talk radio, the NRA, pro-​life groups and the lot are too busy look­ing over their shoul­der to mount any effec­tive opposition.

These are the stakes the left sees if they win, and that’s why they are fight­ing so hard to slow down and stop this scan­dal before the admin­is­tra­tion proper can be tagged by it. If they get away with this, if they can effec­tively dis­en­fran­chise the right, in their minds be the start of another golden age much like their 40 year rule in con­gress from the fifties until 1994.

If they do suc­ceed I see a much dif­fer­ent result…

Update 2 Part 2 is now up here

Update:  Delayed Insta­lanche and fixed a gram­mar point or two. One more thought a day latter.

I noted today (Tues­day) that the infor­ma­tion that is now top of the news from Mr. Snow­den had been reported on in Aug 2012, It didn’t raise a peep.

Don’t get me wrong, the Snow­den story is big and given the IRS scan­dal PRISM needs to be con­sid­ered in a whole new light but the dif­fer­ence in cov­er­age is… inter­est­ing.

Could it be per­haps that the media is push­ing this story now because the sub­ject needs to be changed for the sake of Obama?

If you care to help con­sider hit­ting DaTip­Jar below.

and remem­ber if enough peo­ple sub­scribe for as lit­tle as $10 a month these daily appeals can become a memory.




James Taylor: This is the works! Either we’re out of business or bigger than ever before.

Mr Smith Goes to Washington 1939

I’ve talked a bit in the past of the cultural divide between the right and the left for a long time and as I look at the IRS scandal never has this conflict been more apparent.

Day by day the information is slowly leaking out via testimony,  statement and basic reporting.

On twitter we are repeatedly seeing the non-professional left declaring their approval of the tactics used by IRS against the Tea Party, anti-abortion groups, pro-marriage groups etc etc etc. The Professional left varies from the tepid (it’s wrong BUT) to the Joan Walshs of the world (scandal? what scandal).

Some on the right might not understand why the administration and their allies don’t just come totally clean, get this behind the and take the short terms hit, what they don’t understand is they are playing for much bigger stakes.  They are playing to cement the power in a more permanent way.

Just imagine big Government being able to actively stop those who would combat it with little fear.

It’s the kind of thing that can, in their minds, change the balance of power in the country permanently . If the political right can be restrained by governmental forces and their contributes intimidated the possibilities of the left are endless.

But DatechGuy“, you say, “What about the rule of lawWon’t people get punished?

HA!  If there are no consequences short of a few low level employees fired and maybe a mid level bureaucrat taking the fall, perhaps serving a year or two in a minimum security jail then quietly re-hired by a leftist think tank then there is absolutely no reason for this practice to be repeated again and again by a government of the left until not only Tea Party groups, but talk radio, the NRA, pro-life groups and the lot are too busy looking over their shoulder to mount any effective opposition.

These are the stakes the left sees if they win, and that’s why they are fighting so hard to slow down and stop this scandal before the administration proper can be tagged by it. If they get away with this, if they can effectively disenfranchise the right, in their minds be the start of another golden age much like their 40 year rule in congress from the fifties until 1994.

If they do succeed I see a much different result…

Update 2:  Part 2 is now up here

Update:  Delayed Instalanche and fixed a grammar point or two.  One more thought a day latter.

I noted today (Tuesday) that the information that is now top of the news from Mr. Snowden had been reported on in Aug 2012,  It didn’t raise a peep.

Don’t get me wrong, the Snowden story is big and given the IRS scandal PRISM needs to be considered in a whole new light but the difference in coverage is… interesting.

Could it be perhaps that the media is pushing this story now because the subject needs to be changed for the sake of Obama?
