Patriot Post – Digest For Friday
It certainly seems that IRS Commissioner John Koskinen threated to delay America’s tax refunds because the bureaucracy got its budget cut again. “Everybody’s return will get processed,” he said. “But people have gotten very used to being able to file their return and quickly get a refund. This year we may not have the resources.” In other words, the commissioner just channeled a mob boss: “Nice refund you got there. Shame if anything happened to it.” This year, the IRS will receive $10.9 billion. In 2010, the IRS received $12.15 billion. Koskinen continued, “There isn’t any more give in the system. You make any further cuts in this organization and the wheels are going to start falling off.” Funny how the first thing to be cut because of tight money in a government bureaucracy is customer service.

My Opinion: Well, of course the IRS will delay your return unless they get more money from us. It’s like Obama threatening to cut funds for the Military, Social Security (which isn’t run by the Government, by the way. The Government actually owes money to the Social Security fund that they’ve “borrowed” over the years), and all other “social” programs, if they don’t get more money. The latest IRS demand is just another Thug extorting money from your paycheck.
Columnist Mona Charen: “Has there ever been a president more eager to make concessions to vicious regimes than Barack Obama? The opening of diplomatic relations with Cuba is the latest and, one fears, not the last in a string of preemptive concessions. Obama, with his blend of hard-left prejudices and vaulting solipsism, has sought throughout his presidency to atone for what he and his party view as America’s past sins. … It’s a good thing that Alan Gross and 53 political prisoners have been freed. But the way it was done makes it look to the world that holding a gun to America’s head (in the form of taking hostages, which the Taliban has also learned) works wonders. In exchange for diplomatic recognition and valuable economic concessions, the U.S. (and the Cuban people) got nothing. No promise of free elections, no guarantee of international inspections of the prisons, no freedom of the press — nothing. Why? Because in his heart Obama believes that his nation has always been on the wrong side, and he will use his power in the remaining two years to punish us. A deal with Iran is next.”
My Opinion: Obama will do everything he can to destroy America between now and when he finally leaves office. He & Michelle need to be thrown in Prison where they will find real “Racism.”
But, you know, even if we got a real “fighter” in office, there are too many American’s not willing to do the hard things to get America back on the top of the world food chain. We need to commit to taking out Cuba, ISIS, & North Korea. Annex Mexico. We could do all that in less than 5 years if we’d only commit to getting it done.
