Unintended Consequences of Lawlessness

Is the 2 Tier Justice system affecting you?

On April 9, 2014, the House Committee on Ways and Means voted to send a letter to the Department of Justice referring former IRS Exempt Organizations Division Director Lois G. Lerner for criminal prosecution. As indicated in the attached letter, the Committee’s nearly three-year investigation uncovered evidence of willful misconduct on the part of Ms. Lerner. Despite this fact, and for what many believe were purely partisan reasons, the prior Administration refused to review Ms. Lerner’s misconduct.”

Representatives Brady and Roskam :

When FBI director James Comey listed crime after crime committed by Hillary Clinton and then told us that no criminal charges would be brought because he decided she didn’t intend to break the law, a new and dangerous era of lawlessness was ushered in across the bureaucracies we now call ‘the deep state’. But the infamous Clinton exoneration was only the latest high profile politically connected person to escape literally any punishment for criminal activity while serving in a top level government position. The number of examples of the politically connected or the rich and powerful going unpunished for exactly the same crimes for which less connected citizens are imprisoned for years has been growing for decades.

Hillary’s exoneration followed so closely the exposure of Lois Lerner’s criminal activities at the IRS that the reality of how easily and often government insiders can go unpunished was finally recognized by even the most casual observer. Simultaneously there was stark contrast between Lerner’s and Hillary’s lack of punishment to the prison sentence ordered for Kristian Saucer. Saucer was the sailor whose cell phone was found in a waste transfer station in Groton, CT with six photos he had taken of himself while serving on a nuclear submarine. It was some accidental background of literally outdated instrumentation in his photos for which he was convicted.

So as more and more of this double standard becomes evident, the question becomes just how low on the totem can a government bureaucrat be and still get a pass on lawlessness? And more importantly, what bureaucracies are experiencing the most widespread participation?

While we are learning more about the integrity collapse within the FBI. The avalanche of corruption rolling down from the top in the FBI clearly has been addressed by replacing those most obviously involved. But the one bureau that most affects all of us seems to continue to escape scrutiny – the IRS.

Lois Lerner set the integrity bar so low by directing borderline criminal audits of organizations trying to block participation in the 2012 election, there can be no doubt that her influence spread throughout the entire IRS. She and those closest to her went unpunished. In fact few if any of the key operators in this horrific weaponizing of the Service by Obama supporters even lost their jobs. Some ‘retired’ with disgustingly lucrative benefits private workers can only dream about.

So with the precedent set and the politics of protection anchored deep within the government we now see an explosion in identity theft occurring in the form of tax refunds going to identity thieves. How is so much specific tax return personal information getting into the hands of identity thieves? The answer seems to point to the Service itself. Where else could so much information specific to a person’s tax return be so easily available on such a widespread scale as to be an epidemic of crime? Has the climate of corruption become so acceptable that instead of working to identify the source of the crimes we simply throw up our hands and pay for one of the growing number of identity theft insurance policies. Thousands have been robbed, thousands more have suffered through hard fought recovery efforts as they ran into the stonewall of all stonewalls, the IRS operator.

Having insurance against these cyber crimes, as we now call them, is fine for the short term recovery. But what about a longer term solution? So long as we continue to expand the 2 tier justice system, to turn our heads away from the lawlessness by the politically powerful and their underlings committing obvious crimes, the more divided our justice system will become.

While only about one-third of people responding to popular polls now continue to fail to understand the crimes and political ambitions underlying the efforts to overthrow the President, those who have been most involved have yet to be brought to justice. Why? It would seem that their co-conspirators holding offices within the government and their supporters in the media are able to threaten and intimidate and even “impeach” anyone threatening to collapse this network that has for so long enjoyed living above the law.

Regardless of the outcome of the trial of Trump, there have been dozens of people breaking dozens of laws in an effort to remain so powerful they can continue to live above the laws under which the rest of us must suffer consequences.
