The IRS INCOMPETENCE!!!

June 25, 2013

I want to make sure that everyone understands the title of this post.  The Internal Revenue Service employees, ALL OF THEM, are INCOMPETENT and some of them are (more than a small percentage) are BREAKING THE LAW and giving YOUR money to….well…..NO ONE KNOWS WHO!!!

This post is a continuation of the post yesterday where I asked if they were OVERPAID.

Now, we get more to the story:

IRS Sent $7,319,518 in Refunds to One Bank Account Used by 2,706 Aliens” – CNS News

Go ahead and read the title one more time and then read the article.  The IRS sent more than $7 MILLION, in one year, to ONE BANK ACCOUNT, and apparently, this bank account is used by 2,706 DIFFERENT people!!!  WTF!!!  If this does not make you furious, stop reading now and go somewhere else.  The IRS HAS this information and they have done NOTHING to stop the FRAUD!!!  Are you kidding me???

You know…..IF the NSA wants to spy on EVERYONE and actually find THREATS to American National Security, perhaps they could MONITOR the Government and stop this CRAP!!  I bet Americans would thank them, if they stopped the CORRUPTION.  Maybe we could waterboard IRS employees…let’s start with Lois “I’ll take the Fifth” Lerner (Washington Post)

And IF you think this is a limited occurrence:

In its audit report, TIGTA published a partially redacted list of the Top 10 bank accounts getting tax refunds in 2011 for aliens using ITINs. The list did not include the full account number or the name of the bank holding the account. But it did say that one account—00731XXX22—got 8,393 tax refunds in 2011 worth $236,747. A second account—200005XXX4–got 3,912 refunds worth $186,966. A third—199372XXX2—got 1,608 refunds worth $4,564,264. A fourth—200004XXX9—got 1,428 refunds worth $149,375. A fifth—200004XXX3—got 1,332 refunds worth $391,510. A sixth—630163XXX0—got 1,191 refunds worth $861,162. A seventh—00731XXX30—got 1,084 refunds worth $93,065. An eighth—20000XXX95—got 1,053 refunds worth $810,589. And a ninth—457020XXX8—got 853 refunds worth $1,814,730.

This is ONLY a list of THE TOP TEN bank accounts!!!  Does ANYONE want to wager, any amount, that there are HUNDREDS of accounts that have MORE THAN 50 numbers registered to them??

HOW LONG HAS THIS BEEN GOING ON??  If you read yesterdays post, you will see that there is a report from 1999 that detailed some of these SHENANIGANS, and apparently the IRS has DONE NOTHING to stop it yet!!!

When do you think a WARNING should occur in the IRS “system”???  When a single bank account has 5 DIFFERENT names associated with it??  How about 10??

Oh, and by the way, this would not be a POLITICALLY MOTIVATED ILLEGAL TARGETING list!!!  This list would be TARGETING ACTUAL FRAUD!!!  Oh sorry, I forgot that the LAWBREAKERS that work for the IRS were “too busy” handling the (not supported by fact) increase in 501 c(3) applications, and were busy burning the Constitution…

This is YOUR money that the IRS is just giving away.

These people BELONG IN JAIL!!!

Hey Congressman Issa, when are you going to hold these people accountable???

Are people OVERPAID??

June 24, 2013

First off, I want to make sure that everyone reading this understands that the “sequester” did NOT CUT FUNDS FROM ANY GOVERNMENT PROGRAM, it only slowed the growth of those programs.  The following is the KEY statement from Wikipedia:

The spending reductions are approximately $85.4 billion (equivalent to $42 billion in actual outlays) during fiscal year 2013, with similar cuts for years 2014 through 2021. However, total federal outlays will continue to increase by an average of $238.6 billion per year during the next decade, although at a somewhat lesser rate because of the sequester.

So, anyone that says we needed to layoff people/furlough people, etc. “because of the sequester”, is a LIAR!!!  They are just using the “sequester” as an excuse.  Personally I am on the side that says there needs to be ACTUAL CUTS to the budget of the government.  For anyone that is confused by “ACTUAL CUTS”, it means, basically, that the government should spend LESS this year than it did LAST year.  And to be honest, Obama increased spending by MORE THAN $1 TRILLION per year, so when I say cuts, I mean SIGNIFICANT CUTS.  The actual numbers can be decided, but in my opinion $85 MILLION would not even be CLOSE to the needed amount.

Second, I want to make sure that you have heard that our favorite agency, The Internal Revenue Service, the IRS, the agency that has been maliciously targeting conservative groups, is giving its employees BONUSES to the tune of $70 MILLION.

The Internal Revenue Service is expected to dole out $70 million in bonuses to employees in the next several months.” – CNN Money

Defying Directive, IRS Set To Pay Out $70 Million In Employee Bonuses” –FORBES

Does ANY OBJECTIVE person feel that these IRS bullies employees deserve a BONUS??

If you do, what are your feelings concerning this:

IRS Sent $46,378,040 in Refunds to 23,994 ‘Unauthorized’ Aliens at 1 Atlanta Address” – CNS News

Go ahead and read the article.  The IRS has GIVEN MORE THAN $86 MILLION to JUST 10 ADDRESSES in the USA…..IN 2011 ALONE!!!  AND the IRS KNOWS THIS!!!  In fact in 2011, there were 154 ADDRESSES that had more than 1,000 NEW Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITIN) as their address!!!  When do you think a red flag should be placed on a single address??  Should it be when 10 people apply for an (ITIN) in a single year??  No….How about 20??  Seriously, there are 154 addresses that have MORE than 1,000!!!  Are you kidding me???  The people that have approved this, BELONG IN PRISON!!!

This means that the IRS GAVE AWAY more than $100 MILLION to probable “UNAUTHORIZED ALIEN WORKERS”.  Just for those that are having trouble following along “unauthorized alien workers” are ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, meaning these are people who are ALREADY flouting our laws.  By the way, this is called FRAUD!!!  AND the IRS KNOWS about it, and apparently has NOT DONE ANYTHING ABOUT IT for more than 13 YEARS!!!

The IRS has long known it was giving these numbers to illegal aliens, and thus facilitating their ability to work illegally in the United States. For example, the Treasury Inspector General’s Semiannual Report to Congress published on Oct. 29, 1999—nearly fourteen years ago—specifically drew attention to this problem.

Not only does ANY IRS EMPLOYEE NOT DESERVE A BONUS, but many BELONG IN JAIL!!!  They are aiders and abettors, to the fleecing of the American Tax Payer!!

Timmy “I can’t do my own taxes correctly” Geithner and the Treasury Department…

June 21, 2013

WHY???  Why does ANYONE find it hard to believe, that when you put a lying tax CHEAT in charge of the Treasury Department which is in charge of ENFORCING the nations TAX LAWS, that that agency would be UNABLE TO ACCOUNT FOR ITS EXPENDITURES???

I just think this article is HILARIOUS!!!

Treasury still stonewalling on cost of swanky IRS gatherings” – The Daily Caller

Oklahoma Republican Sen. Tom Coburn asked then-Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner in April 2012 for an accounting of all expenses for all conferences by all branches of the Treasury Department last year. In response, a Treasury assistant secretary provided Coburn with a spreadsheet showing a total of about $500,000 in conference costs.

This is $48.5 million short of the costs for IRS conferences alone that were revealed in a report released in May by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration.

This time Timmy “Turbotax is too hard” was only off by $48.5 MILLION!!!

ROFLMMFAO!!!!

And who expects anything less???

Paul Ryan, what are YOU saying???

June 20, 2013

Sorry, I did not comment on this yesterday, but I could not find the time.  I will cover it today for two reasons.  1 – I had some respect for Mr. Paul Ryan and I thought that he was an intelligent person, trying to do the right thing and 2 – His statement is so off point that I am doubting #1.

First, what Mr. Ryan said to Laura Ingraham, concerning the Immigration Bills that are circulating Washington D.C. currently:

REP. PAUL RYAN (R-WIS.): Not now, but in the future we’re going to have labor shortages. We have 10,000 people retiring each and everyday in America when the Baby Boomers retire. We are not like Europe, we’re not like Japan in that our birthrates are really low, but they’re not high enough. Immigration, in a decade or so, can help us. That means we need to get an immigration system that works. We need an immigration system that works to bring people to this country who want to contribute. (The Laura Ingraham Show, June 19, 2013) ” – Real Clear Politics 

Huh??

Let’s start with the first sentence: “Not now, but in the future we’re going to have labor shortages“?? 

Mr. Ryan, you are correct, we do NOT have a labor shortage now, IN FACT, RIGHT NOW WE ARE WOEFULLY UNEMPLOYED/UNDEREMPLOYED!!!  Personally, I do NOT CARE IF we will have labor shortages “in the future”, IF we do not make it to the future, IT WON’T MATTER!!!  I can think of a GAZILLION things that are “going to happen in the future” and attempting to prevent them WILL GENERATE PRODUCTIVE JOBS NOW, UNLIKE THIS FARCE OF AN IMMIGRATION ACT that you are “working on”, which WILL PRODUCE NO NEW PRODUCTIVE JOBS!!!

Right now, we, meaning you Mr. Ryan, need to concentrate on getting us Americans BACK TO PRODUCTIVE WORK!!!  Eliminate RED TAPE, some of which you have introduced.  Eliminate TAXES, so that average people have the means to attempt something new.  Eliminate REGULATIONS, that are not only stifling growth but are actively producing a decline.  Make GOVERNMENT get out of the way.  Reduce the power of government.  Reduce the power of scumbag attorney’s to extort money for frivolous claims.  Reduce the costs of starting a new business.

Now, as for the remainder of the quote:

I used to think that you were pretty analytical and thought about your positions, but you may have missed some things, so I will point them out now.  You say: “We have 10,000 people retiring each and everyday in America when the Baby Boomers retire“.  First, I would like to see the data that supports this assertion.  Here is a chart from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (which everyone that reads my posts should know that I think the BLS is full of BS, but is as good a “non-partisan” place to start as any), which shows the “baby boomers” CONTINUING TO WORK, as they are the ONLY BENEFICIARIES of the recent “job improvements”.  Basically, Boomers are NOT retiring.

But, just to humor you Mr. Ryan, let’s assume that you are correct and there are 10,000 people retiring per day.  Do you know HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE UNEMPLOYED IN THE USA RIGHT NOW??  For this question let’s go back to the BLS, which I believe UNDERSTATES THE NUMBERS, and NO ONE has claimed that they are wrong to the upside.

Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 175,000 in May, and the unemployment rate was essentially unchanged at 7.6 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today” – Today being June 7, 2013

That’s interesting, what else do they say:

The civilian labor force rose by 420,000 to 155.7 million in May; however, the labor force participation rate was little changed at 63.4 percent.

Wait, how did the labor force “increase by 420,000” while the employment for the month “increased by 175,000” and yet “the unemployment rate was essentially unchanged at 7.6%”???  Oops, sorry I got side tracked…back to the numbers and the original question…

The civilian labor force is 155.7 million people strong.  For this calculation, I will assume that it is not growing, even though everyone should know that it IS GROWING.  And the participation rate is 63.4%.  This means that out of 155.7 million possible workers, 98.7 million actually have a job.  This leaves 56.9 UNEMPLOYED POTENTIAL WORKERS, RIGHT NOW in the USA.  Let’s assume that the 10,000 jobs, that you say are vacated by the boomers everyday, are NOT ELIMINATED and are filled by an unemployed person, HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE BEFORE those 56.9 million people have a job??  Let’s see, 56.9 million divide by 10,000 equals 5,690 days divide by 365 days (because everyone knows that companies will be hiring on christmas day) equals MORE THAN 15.5 YEARS!!!  IF, we go with the 7.6% unemployment rate, which is verifiably low, that means we have 12 million unemployed people looking for work currently, divide by 10,000, divide by 365 equals MORE THAN 3 YEARS just to employ the people looking for work NOW!!  This does NOT include anyone that graduates from High School or College that will want a job in that time, NOR does it include any LEGAL IMMIGRANTS.  Hey Mr. Ryan, instead of looking for more workers today, why don’t you FIND PRODUCTIVE WORK FOR THE UNEMPLOYED??  And these numbers do NOT include anyone that currently hates their job and is stuck not utilizing their skills and education to the maximum!!!

What else did Mr. Ryan say in this interview:

Ingraham was critical of the Congressional Budget Office’s report saying that the Senate’s bill would reduce the federal deficit by $175 billion in the first ten years, calling it “painful” and saying that it will actually cause wages to decrease over the next several years.

Laura, that’s what we have right now. We have de facto amnesty right now,” Ryan shot back, addressing Ingraham’s concern that the bill will hurt the American middle class by flooding the workplace. “We have people who can cross the border and get a job with no consequences right now.”

“That’s not our fault, that’s y’all’s fault,” Ingraham responded. “That’s the government’s fault.”

That’s why we need a law to fix this,” Ryan said. “We have a broken system.”” – Politico

HUH!!!!????   “That why we need a law to fix this”???  What are YOU saying???

How can you NOT SEE THE PROBLEM, Mr. Ryan??

WE HAVE LAWS!!!!  RIGHT NOW!!!! 

The problem, Mr. Ryan, is that the administration, and many administrations before, HAVE NOT ENFORCED THE LAWS!!!!

WE DO NOT NEED ANY NEW LAWS!!!!  WE NEED TO ENFORCE THE ONES WE HAVE!!!

WHY should we, the American public, believe that government will enforce any new laws differently???  IF the “old” laws are no good then abolish them!!  What say you Mr. Ryan??

Secure the border, then we can discuss what to do with the ones that are already here….  I may agree that we can not deport them all, but if they have committed more crimes than just coming to America ILLEGALLY, then they do NOT belong here!!!

Consequences???

June 7, 2013

Everyone has heard about the federal Government, this means the Obama Administration, SPYING ON INNOCENT AMERICAN CITIZENS, and if you have not here is an article that touches on the subject:

Surveillance Leaks Likely to Restart Debate on Privacy” – New York Times

You know it MUST BE BAD when THE PAPER, that has been most supportive of the President, starts to say that He has gone too far!!!  If you need more information, just do a google search, it is EASY to find more information.

Here is the latest example of HIGH RANKING members of the Obama Administration flat-out LYING to Congress and THE AMERICAN PEOPLE:

Flashback: Intel Chief Told Senate in March the NSA Does Not ‘Wittingly’ Collect Any Data on Americans” – The Blaze

I know, I know….that is a far right, extreme, conservative, tea party, hate the government website.  WHATEVER!!!  Look at the article, it has a link to a video of the subject, so you can watch the LIAR as HE TELLS THE LIE under oath to YOU, the American People and the Senate!!  The Senate, is one of the entities that YOU have elected someone to REPRESENT YOU.  They are trying to do that JOB.  The Obama Administration is LYING, HIDING, DISTRACTING, and just plain trying to GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING that they can.  You do not have to take any bodies word for it, WATCH THE VIDEO!!  This was TESTIMONY in MARCH, you know 2 MONTHS AGO:

A top U.S. intelligence chief said he stands by his Senate testimony that the National Security Agency does not collect data on Americans.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s comments in March that the NSA does not “wittingly” collect data on Americans have been called into question following the bombshell report that the government has been secretly collecting the phone records of millions of Americans.

“What I said was, the NSA does not voyeuristically pore through U.S. citizens’ emails. I stand by that,” Clapper told the National Journal

Clapper had been asked directly whether the NSA collects “any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans.”

No sir,” Clapper told Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.). “Not wittingly. There are cases where they could inadvertently, perhaps, collect but not wittingly.” He did not say he was specifically referring to email.

 

Clapper’s testimony on March 12 was one month before the date of the secret court order obtained by The Guardian mandating telecommunications company Verizon turn over information on all phone calls in its systems to the NSA on an “ongoing, daily basis” between April 25 and July 19.

But lawmakers said Thursday that the phone record collecting has been happening for years, and that the order is renewed by the FISA court every three months.

Go ahead, watch the video again.  Clapper was asked, “does the NSA collect ANY type od data AT ALL on millions of Americans?, to which he said “NO SIR”.  THAT IS PERJURY!!!

When are these miscreants going to be held responsible for THEIR ACTIONS??

Here is an article with a link to a video where NSA Director Keith Alexander also denies that the NSA collects this data, WHILE GIVING TESTIMONY IN A CONGRESSIONAL HEARING:

Watch Top U.S. Intelligence Officials Repeatedly Deny NSA Spying On Americans Over The Last Year (Videos)

These people BELONG IN JAIL!!!
