According to the CIA’s favorite newspaper, The Washington Post , threats against the IRS “continue to pour in after last month’s plane crash at agency offices in Austin, according to union officials.”
The threats consist of inappropriate comments made to agency workers by taxpayers, according to National Treasury Employees Union President Colleen M. Kelley. She would not specify if the tax collection agency received threats of violence because the number of threats are under investigation by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration and the IRS.
“It would be a little naive to think that we don’t get some threats over the course of doing business,” said IRS Communications Director Terry Lemons. For the government and the IRS, “business” consists of extracting money at gunpoint and giving it to bankers who “hold” the national debt.
The Washington Post admits that “attacks” (negative comments and support for Joe Stack) are nothing new for the government sanctioned shakedown operation.
On the more radical end of the spectrum, people have rammed cars into offices as well as set them on fire, according to Lemons. The comments and futile acting out against the IRS is not confined to “tax day” (a day of national fear of hefty fines, prison time, and SWAT teams), said the bureaucrat.
The Post made sure to tie in the suicidal shooting of two Pentagon cops by a deranged man earlier this month. “The ongoing probe is unfolding in the aftermath of last week’s attack on the Pentagon in which a gunman wounded two police officers outside the entrance before he was fatally shot.” The event had nothing to do with the IRS.
Maybe the IRS should spend less time investigating angry tax payers and dedicate more resources to investigating their own. Last week, for instance, two IRS Service Center employees in Covington, Kentucky, were charged with stealing “government money” (money extracted from producers to pay banksters), according to The Enquirer . The employees made off with thousands of dollars before they were caught.
