You thought the Stasi, the former East German secret police, were defunct? Nah, they’ve just traveled West. Armed and politicized, the IRS is coming for you. Courtesy, of the Biden administration.
They will be one of the thug arms of the Democrat Party. Step out line and hear the midnight knock on the door. It’s the FBI or IRS calling. Resistance is futile. At least, for now.
Last week, Democrats in the House passed a bill to ban Americans from buying AR-15s, calling the AR-15 a “weapon of war.”
They exempted IRS from the ban.
This week they will add tens of thousands of IRS agents to the budget.

Fox: “The IRS will once again target conservatives and push a political agenda if the agency gets the additional $80 billion proposed under the Inflation Reduction Act, a woman who organized for a Tea Party group swept up in the 2013 targeting scandal told Fox News.
The Senate on Sunday passed the Inflation Reduction Act, which includes $80 billion in spending for the IRS over 10 years, with more than half of that intended for enforcement. That funding level could add an additional 87,000 employees over that time period to the 82,000 currently on staff, the Biden administration projected last year.”
“Knowing how weaponized the IRS interest has been and still is, it’s easy to imagine what it’s going to become once they double the number of agents,” said Texas Tea Party Patriots PAC co-founder Suzanne Guggenheim.
“Everybody will suffer,” Guggenheim, who left communist Hungary decades ago, said. “The country suffers, the businesses suffer and every single citizen.
“The Tea Party groups were unfairly targeted,” Guggenheim said. “A few bad apples have a lot of consequences when they go unpunished. It takes away a lot of your possibilities to raise funds and to do the job you’re trying to do,” Guggenheim added. “To compete with your opponents you need to have the means to do that.
“The only way to be efficient is to be able to spread your message,” Guggenheim said. The IRS scrutinized “groups and organizations that didn’t follow their political agenda,” Guggenheim told press. “They never did anything wrong.
“It’s bad for the leaders and organizer, but obviously it has a very big impact on their supporters,” Guggenheim said. “They were all afraid of having the IRS go after them.” “It was a big impediment,” she added.
“We have seen already as through those last few years how they have come after the conservatives, how they have come after President Trump and anybody who in any way was linked to him, even just by supporting him,” Guggenheim told media. “We certainly do fear that our groups that continue to express their support will be targeted.
“This is a big risk, and this is not what our government agency should be for. They should be there to serve the people, not to harass them. The IRS has too much power. They use it politically instead of using it to do their job like they should be, which should be, in fact, helping the taxpayer.”
