Those texts were reportedly sent in August 2016 only a few months before the 2016 presidential election and AFTER the FBI had started its investigation into Trump campaign aides.

Even if you despise Trump - given the positions of these folks and their superiors - this exchange has got to make you cringe. This is not a political issue - this is an American issue. Who needs Russian collusion to affect an election when you have these well-positioned insiders, ready, willing and able.
IMHO, the entire Russia thing is the left's backup plan and cover for their collusion to prevent Trump's election in the first place. They desperately need a majority of Americans to be distracted by "the Russians!" so as to not be held responsible for their criminal, cowardly and treasonous acts.

The folks on Media Matters were spewing the Russian scenario long before the MSM grabbed it. They were talking about bankrupting those that supported Trump long before Flynn and Manafort were under the eye of Mueller.

IMO, it's all scripted.

My brother believes this shit, hook, line and sinker. He like listen to Jim Acosta.

Reached way back on this one, but if you read the VDH again and the other comments you might accept the plausible outcome, that 2024 election cycle will be the final piece to establish the force necessary to implement total control, is the 87000 new government agents that will will be used by the D卐M☭CRAT Party to institute Authoritarianism.

I look at this next wave of 86,000 IRS agents to be somewhat less competent than your typical TSA goon.

Probably the further weaponizing of the IRS as a political arm of the left.

Just my .02, YMMV.

To add a little comparative context to just how big that number REALLY is - a Brigade Combat Team has an average of roughly 4,500 Soldiers...
...the Army can't afford to fund readiness, and lower enlisted Soldiers across this great nation of ours are living in substandard barracks that can't be properly maintained because brandon democrats have spent the last 50 years chipping away at military budgets...

Yet, the government is getting ready to field roughly TWENTY brigade combat teams worth of federal agents for the sole purpose of questioning how you spend your money.
...almost nine times the manpower that was used in the initial invasion of Afghanistan after 9/11

that is all
nothing to see here - move along

Box, thanks for the math, with your approval, this is an excellent post to copy and paste all over social media, including professional business web site's, while also sending to your elected representatives.

In short, the general public can not process that number and assign a task outside of the IRS, but comparing that manpower to a military brigade, especially with our recent excursions in SWA, Joe public will respond and those elected rep's will have to explain their position.

imo, time is of the essence as the vote for funding is on the agenda this coming week. Ukraine has master this social citizen lead PR fight. We need to begin the same tactic within our own sphere of influences no matter how small.

I dont own 'math' my friend and every single one of those numbers can be found on either Wikipedia, the history channel, or "news" - including the fact that right now, there are only 74,000 people working for the IRS
...so they are looking to more than DOUBLE the size of an organization that not only takes your money - but has the ability to do it with an 'in-house' SWAT team

Thats some of the funniest stuff I've seen on this site in quite some time. There are currently 435 voting representatives in the House as well as 50 US Senators; what makes THEM so qualified to hold office?

Yes.
Yes, you can.

Even better, where does the IRS get 80k accountants in good physical condition, willing to carry a firearm and use deadly force?

hahahaha...
...well, maybe they could just reflag the USMC:

Total Post Expansion IRS = 162,000 people in good physical condition, willing to carry a firearm and use deadly force

Active Duty USMC = 175,000 people in good physical condition, willing to carry a firearm and use deadly force



Just like every Marine is an Infantryman, every IRS agent is an Federal Officer
...I don't know why nobody seems to understand basic mathematics.

Maduro and Chavez used street gangs to audit/terrorize and control the populace if I am not mistaken. And it seems like I recall some of the Dem's going to visit Maduro several years ago to take notes.. Several years ago a friend of mine applied for a job with the IRS, he called to tell me he was the only guy in line wearing a suit and the everyone else was dressed like they were straight from the hood.

wait - I just realized something - did anyone else realize that taxes are going to be raised so that some of the money from the increased taxes can be used to pay for the increased salary of the increase in tax collectors...
...with guns

Brandon has done it again - with the stroke of a pen he has invented a government-funded self-licking ice cream cone
