The IRS Immigration Fraud Scandal
American Spectator, by Jeffrey Lord

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/18/2013 10:37:24 AM

Marco Rubio. Paul Ryan. The IRS. Illegal immigration. And fraud to the tune of billions.. Now there’s a combustible mix. Let’s start with the IRS, illegal immigration and fraud. We’ll come back in a minute to Senator Rubio and Congressman Ryan. For those who came in late, a year before the IRS scandals burst onto the scene in early May of 2013, an alert investigative reporter for WTHR-Indianapolis (Channel 13), Bob Segall by name, produced a stunning piece of journalism. Segall’s video report is found here and we will quote from his story for the basics.

Comments:
We have yet another article that will infuriate you. This immigration bill ignores the critical problems now present and will only make it worse. It must not pass.

I know they don´t care, but the republians have lost so many votes with the immigration bill, the gun bill, and more. I truly don´t know if I"ll ever vote again. And please don´t tell me that means the dems will win. What are we voting for now and what are we getting?

This news made the rounds a week or so ago, with a link to the TV video. I emailed it to lotsa friends, but got no response from any. I think there is so much "stuff" flying back and forth regarding illegal aliens and IRS fraud that no one even reads most of the new news. This one is BIG.

About 5 years ago, in my neighborhood, which was once solidly working class with pride of ownership, but now overrun with illegal immigrants, an Hispanic "Tax Preparation" business moved into a small vacant storefront. Everything is in Spanish, and from January until April the business is non-stop. I knew about this child tax credit fraud back then because I had to figure out what was going on as there must be some reason all these deadbeats were lining up. As I inquired more, I learned a lot of illegals work just up until they make enough money to be required to file a tax return, then quit. (So they don´t lose the welfare benefits for the anchor babies). The same ones I see in the local supermarket using food stamps are the same ones on line to file their tax returns in January. Someone in the know said they are getting as much as $6000.00/year in CREDITS!

None of these so-called scandals will amount to a hill of beans - - because there is no opposition to 0bama - - none.

The Pubbies not only don´t oppose what Zippy is doing - - they are often complicit in helping him tear apart this country.

Witness Citizen Cane Sugar - - who was once the Great Hispanic Hope for the Tea Parties - - and is now a willing and active player for the Dark Side.

I keep warning everyone not to get their hopes up for a turnaround. We´re surrounded and vastly outnumbered by the cockroaches - - and their numbers are growing while ours are subsiding.

There´s no hope for the United States remaining the land of the free and the home of the brave. None.

I found it interesting that the applicant for citizenship has to prove proficiency in English. If that´s true, why are there signs in other languages of where to vote as well as pamphlets describing referendums.

The child care tax credit (payment)without proof of payments to an authorized child care prvider makes no sense to me.

Regarding Rubio and Ryan:

"Both men are in the process of developing the immigration reform issue into a serious credibility problem with their own conservative base." And "there are conservatives aplenty who listen to Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan and simply don’t believe a word they say on immigration."

Both men are so far past "serious credibility problem" that they can´t even see it in the rearview mirror. Both men surveyed the landscape and went all in FOR noncitizens and AGAINST Americans. Both men know there is no going back and, having nothing to lose, have no alternative but to jam this thing through. So be it. But if conservatives have anything to say about it, it will be the last political act for both of them. We will feed their treachery back to them at the ballot box.

I spit when I say their names, the taste is so foul.

It´s been common knowledge for many years that the vast majority of illegal aliens who file federal and state tax returns do so not to pay actual taxes they owe, but to collect tax refunds of money withheld by their employers, and tax credits that can easily amount to over $5,000.00 for each illegal alien per year.

That happens because most illegal aliens do not earn enough money to generate a bottom line tax liability, plus the fact that they usually claim a very large number of dependents, sometimes with the dependents actually residing outside the USA, clearly a lot of the dependent claims are fraudulent, but of course nobody is looking, as doing that would be politically incorrect.

The US Government has done nothing to stop that, with activists fraudulently claiming that illegal aliens are just paying their taxes which in reality they have never done. To facilitate that bogus process more the US Government through the IRS has developed a process of issuing illegal aliens "tax identification numbers" for the illegal aliens to use as most of them do not have valid social security numbers.

The IRS has plenty of time and manpower to harass Conservative groups, but couldn’t bring themselves to scrutinize illegal immigrant fraud, despite repeated admonitions from the IG.

This information so disgusted me that I could hardly finish reading it. Totally dismayed at Rubio and Ryan, no one is what they seem to be.

The tax code must be repealed and a purchase point tax approved.

It seems that we have overstayed our 200 year lifespan.

We are being invaded by an army of immoral, low-skilled workers and our own government is complicit in the invasion. Somehow, some way, these leaders are going to pay a price for their self-induced blindness.

And don´t tell me that highly skilled workers like nurses and engineers are coming here from Mexico. They don´t have any.

There has been a coup de etat in our country. The Democratic Party has become a criminal enterprise, using illegals, low-information voters, and the federal civil service to engage in electoral fraud, embezzle billions from law-abiding citizens into their own pockets and those of the criminal class they have created, and suppress legal consequences through their control of the media and the judiciary. America is over, and we lost because we did not dare to believe (and were brainwashed against believing) what has happened.

I started to read the article and about halfway through I quit. Not that it wasn´t a well written article, its just that what we, the taxpaying legal resident thinks doesn´t matter. Those clowns in D. C. and sadly I now have to include Rubio among them are going to roll this through. It is going to be a disaster and it can never be walked back Once these illegal immigrants get amnesty, it can never be taken away from them. The Rubios and Schumers of the world will walk away from the disastrous results and retire with their generous pensions and perks and let the rest of us schmucks deal with the day in and day out results if their stupidity. This push to amnesty must be stopped and stopped NOW.

Tax fraud, voting fraud, immigration fraud. No big deal. It´s the Democratic way and we are doomed. I live in Indy and remember this report. I also worked for H&R Block. With so many audits going on wouldn´t you think the IRS might question someone claiming 15 dependent children? They should have to prove what they are claiming. So we have illegals living and working here illegally, claiming billions in illegal refunds, straining our educational and medical systems etc. but we are the bad guys because we want our border secured. We are in real deep pooh and when it hits the fan it is splashing on Rubio and any other R that votes for this cow pie. Vote buying instead of following our Constitution. We are being attacked from all sides.

I would love to get together with several like-minded individuals and intelligently discuss where we can create a new America. This is no longer our country and it is a losing battle to try to take it back. I would rather expend my energies in a manner where they will be of use.

The dems have won. We are at End Game. They have reached the point where there are son many lo-fo´s and gov´t aid dependents, coupled with their ability to count their votes several times that it is no longer possible to change things at the ballot box - unless you cheat more. It will soon get to the point where one will have to beg the gov´t for anything they want.

I live in Texas, but unless we print our own money, create our own military and wall ourselves off, even we are screwed.

What baffles me is this: What´s "in it" for Rubio and Ryan to sell their souls for amnesty?

We know they can´t possibly believe their amnesty bill "is what´s best for the country."

So strike off naive idealism. What´s left? Political advantage? But how...? They must know they´re killing their political future with conservatives, and that conservatives still dominate the primary process?

Any republican who can vote for this bill can change to the democrat party. That party will defeat any new Palin-Cruz conservative party. Republicans do not stand for anything any more, or speak passionately to any evil. They are dragged kicking and screaming, and the heroes in the party are denigrated by the biggest turncoats. Maybe they were taken themselves, not thinking their collaboration would mean the end of America -- it was just a deal that would see more Mexicans to pay taxes and supply labor and join the services. They also had their precious comity, and a share of internationalist money. The sell out was clear when no republicans called for proof of Obama´s eligibility. A new Immigration Bill was going to normalize outlander status anyway, so why call the new black guy a probable thug? The press took care of the "birther" interest to this day. Republicans were schooled on fairness, an empty term, and most of them know the ship has sailed for a new world order. Republicans are silent, dumb, vicious, and they stand for nothing. They also lack heroic leaders.

Well written, believable and incredibly discouraging. I liked Rubio and I had pretty much fallen for his ´we will build the security plan into the bill´ until I read Ed Meese´s description of this bill as almost a carbon copy of Reagan´s self described as amnesty bill (which supposedly had the same security plan elements built in but turned out to be pure amnesty and nothing but). The horror is I think a lot of people are buying it. That´s why Harry Reid is in such a rush to get it passed . . . don´t give the chumps time to figure it out.

Why is no one using our RNC contributions to buy TV air time with this message? Why don´t we get a program like the Dems and call folks to tell them we will call their friends and let them know they are supporting bad legislation? In short why the h--l don´t we fight fire with fire?

Ever get hassled over little things that some Puritanical enforcer wants to punish
you for? And then see these non-Americans get away with massive fraud so major that
it is breathtaking?

I know of leftist, radical, activist idiots who are complete and total suckers for
certain "downtrodden" types, most especially for those who speak only Spanish.

I´ve seen Hispanics who can speak perfectly good English use only Spanish in most cases
instead, to continue to hoodwink the soft-hearted and soft-headed enablers who cave
to them and their poor "plight."

Folks, we are living in Sucker City now, and we are paying for it.

Vote in 2014 like your life depends on it... because it actually does.

Our biggest hope is that, in addition to Ryan and Rubio looking like utter frauds,
the Kommie Kare taxes and regulations will be so shockingly burdensome that the game
will be over for all these liars who are just O-Bomber Clones.

Otherwise, we´re finished.
Within the next three or four years...
Either they are finished...
Or we are.
That should make you take a Big Gulp.

It is just so disheartening. I live in a rural community and although I have a very good job, I´ve never made more than $40k. Getting close to retirement age and trying to figure out why I am only going to get $1,400/mo. when I will have been working 45 CONTINUOUS years. Now I never expected that social security would be enough, but it seems to be a lot less than welfare these days. I also have a disease that immediately qualifies me for a lung transplant if I get too bad. But I´ve been working with that since 2004, never thought about applying for a disability; just figured they would make me drag an oxygen machine to work. Heck, I´m sure I won´t be able to afford an oxygen machine or lung transplant after Obamacare kicks in. I´m dragging my sorry butt to work to pay for everyone else to not work and play with their smart phones. Just had to vent.

The problem?

After an endless series of stories about incompetence or outright corruption in one government scandal after another, not to mention the massive failure of the 1986 Reagan immigration law, there are conservatives aplenty who listen to Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan and simply don’t believe a word they say on immigration.

Not good.

Hard working white, Asian, baby boomer and other conservative tax paying Americans need to band together and file a lawsuit against our government, charging it with involutary servitude, aka, slavery. The libs goals is to enslave whitey et al punish them for slavery. Most libs are so ignorant, power hungry and/or corrupt that they do not care that most "whitey´s" had nothing to do with slavery and emigrated to America after the Civil War.

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced
to Deport a Huge Number of Americans´
Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:02:50 PM     Post Reply
Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Oversight member on Lois Lerner
coordination with DOJ: ‘Now I see

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

The Terrifying Implications of
the IRS Abuse-DOJ Connection

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Obama to meet with healthcare leaders
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Elise Viebeck    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 9:15:29 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is scheduled to meet with health insurance executives and state insurance commissioners on Thursday, just two days after ObamaCare´s special enrollment period officially closed. The meetings, which will include at least one photo-op, are a chance for the White House to telegraph unity with health insurance companies and state regulators involved with the rollout of the healthcare law. The announcement of new enrollment figures was also expected separately on Thursday. It is possible Obama could reveal the numbers before one of the two meetings. Total exchange enrollment is likely to have risen since last week, when Health and Human Services Secretary

Colo. eminent domain case
settled with $115,000 sale
Fox News, by Faith Mangan    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 9:09:48 PM     Post Reply
Breckenridge, Colo. - A contentious eminent domain case in which a local government sought to take private backcountry land for open space has been settled, with the landowners agreeing to a $115,000 sale. "To me, what just came out of it is, you can´t win, you can´t fight the government," landowner Ceil Barrie said Wednesday. She and her husband, Andy, owned ten acres of land perched at 11,000 feet elevation in Breckenridge. The property, with breathtaking views, was a private patch of land surrounded by White River National Forest. An old, uninhabited day-use cabin, an outhouse and a shuttered gold

Salon: ABC News ´Bending Over

Sunday, George Stephanopoulos announced that Laura Ingraham was joining ABC News as a contributor. So the network that long employed a Cuomo and still employs a Clinton "bimbo" destroyer has formalized a relationship with a conservative pundit. To the Left, this is yet another example of the mainstream media attempting to compensate for a liberal bias which never was significant and vanished altogether roughly forty years ago. They want no debate. In a Tuesday piece for Salon, Heather Digby Parton, who blogs at her own site under the name Digby, asserted that the conservative claim of liberal media bias is "absurd"

MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow Daily wasn’t exactly in Reverence Mode for the Boston Marathon bombing victims. About 40 minutes before the memorial ceremony on Tuesday afternoon, Farrow aired a segment about Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s love for Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and how it somehow may have led to his radicalism. How is the “robust martial arts culture” of wrestling a better “scene” for Tamerlan’s radicalism instead of radical websites or mosques? Farrow somberly promised “a look at the people behind this tragedy: the Tsarnaev brothers.” Was it just a tragedy, or a crime? Farrow turned to his partners at Vocativ for a

President Obama called House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) to prod Republicans to bring up immigration reform, but the conversation apparently did not go well. Cantor issued a blistering statement afterward, criticizing Obama for calling him just after delivering what he called “a partisan statement” that indicated “no desire to work together” on immigration, a top priority for Obama that House Republicans have largely ignored. “After five years, President Obama still has not learned how to effectively work with Congress to get things done,” Cantor said in the statement. “You do not attack the very people you hope to engage in

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
