One must internalize the depths Obama & goons will go to to silence those who dare to criticize their dictates, especially those with the “audacity” to do so in full national view! Just use your imagination, then place yourselves within any strong-arm dictatorship, and think of this moment in American history as the “softening up” process. The warning shot across the bow. Obey “dear leader”…or else.
IRSgate clearly demonstrates its gargantuan reach, and the resonance it has with (most) Americans, regardless of other societal divisions.
So, along comesDr. Ben Carson, an erudite, powerful speaker, let alone a renowned neurosurgeon, as he tears apart Obama Inc. and its push towards“affordable” healthcare, all the while attending a prayer breakfast as a featured speaker! Talk about a bushwhack between their eyes, and then some. Huh…and Obama’s goons decided to get even….instead of reflecting on this world class doctor’s recommendations and insights. What a bunch of no talent (other than for deconstruction and destruction)governmental ingrates.
Just months after he gave a speech earlier this year that challenged America’s leadership in President Obama’s presence, Dr. Ben Carson was targeted by IRS agents who requested to review his real estate holdings and then conducted a full audit without finding any wrongdoing.
“I guess it could be a coincidence, but I never had been audited before and never really had any encounters with the IRS,” Dr. Carson said in an interview Thursday with The Washington Times. “But it certainly would make one suspicious because we know now the IRS has been used for political purposes and therefore actions like this come under suspicion.”
Dr. Carson is a world-renown neurosurgeon whose rise from poverty and a single family home, and his medical work with pediatric patients was celebrated in a movie called “Gifted Hands.”
He has electrified the conservative world with speeches and columns since his February National Prayer Breakfast speech in front of Mr. Obama, in which he decried the “moral decay and fiscal irresponsibility” of America in recent years. He writes a weekly column for The Times.
Dr. Carson first hinted at the problem earlier this week during a speech in Alabama when he made a vague reference to having his first “encounter with the IRS” earlier this year.
Dr. Carson told The Times that IRS agents contacted him in June — less than four months after the speech — and requested to review his real estate holdings. After finding nothing that concerned them, the agents then informed him they were conducting a full audit of his finances, and then asked to go back an additional year to review his records, he said.
They finally ended the review in August after finding no problems, Dr. Carson said.
“They told me everything was in good standing and left,” he said.
Asked whether he thought the audit was a retaliation for his speech, Dr. Carson quipped: “I guess I’m surprised it took them that long.”
He said the more serious issue is that the IRS has been politicized — “something that should never have happened” — and that leaves all of its activities open to suspicion.
Most succinctly, back in February 2013, Real Clear Politics tells the tale in‘Somebody Has To Stand Up To The Bullies’. The righteous and valiant doc calls Obama Inc. what they truly are and smacks them broadside too. Oh yeah.
