Mark Levin says that these ‘scandals’ aren’t really good examples of government scandals, they are really examples of tyranny.
He explains in this short clip:

This is the MO of BO and has been since he was in Chicago running for Senate. Nothing new for Obama. He is responsible.
He’s trying to turn our country into Pakistan or some other third world dictatorship.
One of the best comments on the CRIMINAL ACTS of the IRS is this one:
Midwest Rhino @ Legal Insurrection: “The Alinsky trained attack dog is now running loose in the White House, instead of biting random citizens in the street.
Alinsky tactics were designed for the less powerful to leverage more power. When the same subversive tactics continue in high office, we get a Castro, Mao or Chavez figure, not Lincoln or FDR.
Obama and the left are better at destroying than building. They create a crisis, then marshal their efforts for looting, not rebuilding.” http://legalinsurrection.com/2013/05/branco-cartoon-stupid-pet-tricks/comment-page-1/#comment-425098
Conniption Fitz As I recall Dinesh D’Souza attempted to lay all this out in his movie, 2016: Obama’s America. He used the words Obama claims from Dreams of My Father (claims because we can’t be sure he wrote them) to show us the past and how those beliefs would shape the future. So far he seems to be absolutely correct.
texabama Conniption Fitz Even before the election in ’08, Dr. Corsi said pretty much the same thing in Obamanation.
Conniption Fitz Well said. 0 is indeed the Looter in Chief.
“OBAMA WANTED TO KNOW THE CONTENT OF OUR PRAYERS” testified a conservative group seeking tax-free status. I swear to God I would kill that man who presented my friends with this insult to their humanity. Nobody is getting out of this IRS scandal alive. Obama will not be allowed to leave this restaurant of deception and cruelty without being handed the bill. He will not leave us holding the bag this time. EVERYBODY GOES TO JAIL.
JimmyTravis I understand your point and your passion, but this is not the forum to make such declarations as the one I removed from your comment.
… it is time to take back the LIBERTY we all once had from the TYRANNICAL ideology that is being rammed down our throats from PREMIER CHAIRMAN DEAR LEADER Mao HUSSEIN Obama and his central committee group of hacks.”
I think Mark’s observation that people are OK with local government is relative. Local governments an regional councils (CoGs) have made serious inroads into regulatory control, land control, school indoctrination, property rights and freedom of movement.
Bottom up – top down .
sDee Things are a lot worse than even Levin knows or will acknowledge.
strangernfiction sDee I think it depends on where you live.
Laurel A strangernfiction sDee Even red states have Agenda 21 popping up in their communities. I got an email from someone in Wyoming a few days ago. Even though I’m familiar with it, I was shocked to think of it making inroads in the rugged West.
I think it does depend on where you live. Currently, I live in AZ where the nation sees her as some sort of hero, when I see someone who proudly voted for her own tax increase and someone implementing O’care after she took it to the Supreme Court. Its horrible. Sbe’s vetoed every single conservative bill that’s come out of our reps.
Here’s Louie Gohmert going after Sharia law and how DHS is encouraging those that want Sharia in the US to be allowed in and left to do what they want.
He is so right on this.
The lefties like to claim that we on the right are paranoid and that we just imagine that the left is trying to take away our rights and destroy the Constitution. The IRS attacks on right-wing organizations is incontrovertible proof that we are not paranoid. It also shows that we are paying attention and will not be blindsided, conned, or pacified by more lies. Take note lefties, we will not give up.
I’m in. Let’s go Mark !! I will kiss the ground once we are liberated from this nightmare of 8 years.
Damn right it’s tyranny, this is the type of stuff England was doing to us right before we kicked their asses out.
It is tyranny but they have underestimated we the people and will pay the price for it because just as the patriots who have gone before we will win because our cause is right and it is just. Keep the faith because God is with us.
Tyrannies like Obama’s corrupt rule have one other deleterious effects. It compromises and corrupts citizens at all levels, particularly those citizens who have a hand in being part of the apparatus of the state. IRS agents, Agriculture, Justice, Defense… they all participate in performing questionable duties and tasks according to the dictates of their corrupt masters.
Like a virus, the corruption spreads. Average run-of-the-mill civil servants now have participated and furthered actionable and criminal behaviour. The tyrants at the top of government organs love this aspect of the game because it shields them from scrutiny and whistle blowers. Potential whistle blowers now become part of the problem and are neutralized. Previously they stood in the shallow end and could have warned about sharks in the water, now they are in up to their necks in the deep end swimming in the sewage pumped out by the corrupt administration. Eventually like the Soviet Union, almost no one is immune to charges of malfeasance because everyone is either coerced to participate in the corruption, upon pain of losing their jobs, or are targeted by a malicious and vindictive state system run by thugs and immoral statists.
“A post-constitutional government.” I could not have said it any better, Mr. Levin. The bureaucrats have taken over and nobody seems to be overseeing them, disciplining them, or even bothering to examine what they are doing. As long as you hide in the government shadows, you can pretty much do whatever you want to do. And it must stop. In 2014, I hope there are a lot more Tea Party candidates running for every office in the country. Taking this nation back starts with us. I only hope that people like Allen West will lead the charge against the rot that is in Washington right now.
I really wish Mark would drop the word “soft” out of it. It’s a fine word to use among harumphing professors having a few sherries before dinner, but it’s a horrible word to insert where peoples’ lives and livelihoods are at stake.
Okay, so it’s not a full-bore, totalitarian nightmare yet. You can still go to the grocery store and get whatever you want (if you have a job). Let’s call it an Early-Stage Tyranny, then. You can’t open a small business that actually MAKES something anymore, because the EPA will drive you right out of business. As Mark pointed out, we have so many laws now that nearly everyone is in violation of some law, and nearly no one can understand the entire set of laws, just for the EPA alone.
It isn’t a “soft” tyranny at all.
The other thing that’s important is the part where Mark says to forget about impeachment. Even if the House does decide to impeach, which is highly unlikely, the Senate won’t convict, and barack will use it the same way Bill Ayers used his non-conviction, and Bill Clinton did with his non-conviction: to enhance their rock-star status among the left.
We need to use this as a way to revise the entire tax system, top-to-bottom. It’s the only thing we have to help dislodge the massive hold the tax attorneys have over congress when it comes to keeping the tax code as byzantine as possible.
