How do you spell banana republic?

Don’t worry about how to spell, it just look at how the Obama administration and the left have been doing things for the last few years, and you should have a pretty good idea. Yesterday I pointed out how government feels those of us that do not think government should be allowed to disarm us considering how corrupt it is, but that’s just a drop in the bucket of the insane abuses of power going on. Today I would like to point out how vulnerable Senate democrats have had no problem asking the IRS to hamstring the opposition for them, and that the LSM seems quite OK with this incredible abuse of power.

Let’s not pretend that Obama did anything but lie that day he said there was not a smidgen of corruption in that IRS scandal he claims is made up as well. It takes some special kind of gall to lie about not using powerful and unrestrained federal agencies to target your political opponents, but it goes to a whole new level once they no longer even try to hide the fact that they will heavily rely on this sort of abuse to compensate for people wanting to hold them responsible for this sort of lawless and corrupt behavior.

Politics: In the wake of the IRS targeting scandal, which included groups that already had tax exemptions, vulnerable Democrats ask the agency with the power to tax to use that power to destroy their opposition in 2014. The fundamental transformation of the United States into a banana republic, where government power is used to suppress political opposition, has evolved from a hidden campaign targeting the Tea Party and other conservative groups to an open attempt to suppress free speech by changing the definition of what constitutes political activity. It’s an attempt to define conservative political speech out of existence.

The administration cover story — that prior to the 2012 election the sudden increase in the number of such groups applying for tax-exempt status was the reason applications were delayed — has been blown apart by Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich. His Ways and Means Committee found that the groups targeted already had tax exemptions and that 100% of the groups that were targeted with an audit were on the right. Now, Senate Democrats who voted for ObamaCare and parroted President Obama’s lie of the year are asking the IRS to ensure that if they like their Senate seats they can keep their Senate seats. They want the IRS to be a campaign wing of the Democratic Party.

Leading the IRS call is Sen. Charles Schumer, N.Y., the Senate Democrats’ chief political strategist. “The Tea Party elites gained extraordinary influence by being able to funnel millions of dollars into campaigns with ads that distort the truth and attack government,” Schumer said in remarks at the Center for American Progress Action Fund.

Sharing that belief are vulnerable Democrats such as Sen. Mark Pryor of Arkansas. He argues the IRS has power over such groups that engage in what he calls quasi-political activity. In reality, such groups are merely people organizing to petition for the redress of grievances, which include reckless spending, oppressive taxation and regulation, and, yes, ObamaCare.

When the democrats called the Tea Party terrorists, then proceeded to hold training for military entities where these people were acting like terrorists, they meant it. Anyone that stands in the way of the left’s agenda and hold on power is a terrorist and obviously evil, a threat to the state, and the left thinks it is fine for them to use the government they control to target them. Let’s not pretend that these people are doing anything but engaging in criminal activity for their own benefit anymore, please. There is no defending this shit.

We should all learn how to spell banana republic, because we are living in one.

    Just like you only can have a communist shithole of a state if they use the word “People’s Republic” in the name and send people to reeducation or work camps, or can have fascism only if they have a nationalist component or a snappy salute to the Furher?

    What a sad time we live in when this happens and nobody blinks an eye. Can you imagine something like this happening when the republicans have power without the press going insane?
