87,000 IRS Locust Agents Descending on Americans – A Repeat of 1776

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance. ~ Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.

Big news: the two Joes, Biden and Manchin, have funded 80 billion for the IRS in their “Inflation Reduction Act.” Question: How exactly does spending 80 billion dollars reduce inflation?

According to CNBC reporter Kate Doyle, the ironically named Inflation Reduction Act has “more than half of the money going to enforcement.” The IRS plans to hire 87,000 more agents to audit “high earners.”

Where have we seen this scene play out before? Oh, yeah. Colonial America, with King George III’s swarms of tax officers harassing Americans and eating out their substance. It’s right there in the Declaration of Independence. 

What does a “swarm” look like? I’d say 87,000 IRS locust agents descending on American taxpayers. What does a swarm of locusts do? Eat all of a farmer’s crops that he worked hard to plant and cultivate. What does a swarm of IRS agents do? Seize a hefty percentage of a wage earner’s money that she worked hard to earn.

What does “eating out their substance” look like? 87,000 IRS agents confiscating money from American citizens. 

What does “harass our people” look like?

The time and paperwork involved in audits. When the IRS audits you, you are presumed guilty unless you and your accountant can prove your innocence. So, you must produce the documents the IRS asks for, answer the questions the IRS asks, and spend time with an IRS agent. You can’t do your own work, run your business, or lead your own life. When the IRS comes calling, they claim first priority over your life.

The Iron Law of Bureaucracy: fulfill our quotas, be it right or wrong.

In one case, the IRS audited a small business, taking the time of the lone accountant for an entire week. His normal work did not get done while he produced documents for the IRS agent. At the end of the week, the honest agent told the accountant: “Everything is in order. No violations. The company does not owe back taxes.”

When Honest Agent reported the result to her boss, he said: “There is always a violation somewhere in a small business. Go back and audit them again.” The honest agent returned and spent another week with the accountant, delaying her regular work (including employee paychecks) for a second week. Again, she found nothing wrong. Again, her boss told her: “Your job is to find something wrong. You are not looking closely enough. Return and audit them a third time.”

Faced with losing the third week of work, Honest Accountant told Honest Agent, “Look, here is a small amount in a category that could be interpreted as a judgment call. Why not label that a violation, assess a back tax due and a penalty due, declare a victory, and move on?” The honest agent did so. Her boss was satisfied that she had made her quota of “violations” that he, in turn, could report to his boss up the hierarchy of the bureaucracy. The honest accountant was able to get back to catching up on her real work. 

Moral of the story: When an enforcement agency has a goal of finding violations, they will find them even if they have to make them up. They are in trouble with their bosses if they do not.

You can expect more swarms and more harassment, just as in 1776.

Tea anyone?

Michael McCarthy

Michael McCarthy is a life-long student of liberty, limited government, and free-market economics. As a young man, he taught and crewed at the Flint School aboard the 156’ two-masted schooner Te Vega sailing in Europe. Atlas Shrugged was required reading.

In 2010 he saw the acceleration of big government control in politics, business, and culture. Hoping to reach the next generation through fiction entertainment, he wrote the prophetic novel The Noah Option. Powerful politicians target brilliant black scientist Dr. Grace Washington. Her story continues in the sequel, The Rainbow Option, when powerful elites unleash a deadly virus on unsuspecting Americans, and Grace must develop a cure. In The Timshel Option, ISIS invades and creates The New England Caliphate, making women second-class citizens. One teenage girl fights back.

"The things I predicted in my novels came true in the nightly news. Our country is in trouble. Like Abraham Lincoln, I hope for a new birth of freedom,” says McCarthy.

Informed Dissent Needs to Collide with Newsom’s Attack on Informed Consent

Informed Dissent Needs to Collide with Newsom’s Attack on Informed Consent

Did nearly 90,000 Californians die from COVID-19? No. Many died because their government denied treatment to those infected with the patented Wuhan viral bioweapon. Thousands more infected patients were told to go home and suffer until their lips turned blue and only then go to the hospital, and most who did surely died from the deadly NIH hospital protocol…

Ethics in Healthcare: Why Did Nurses and Physicians Forget their Oaths?

America Out Loud PULSE with Jodi O’Malley MSN, RN – From the onset of our government’s declaration of the National Emergency Act and the subsequent novel policy and protocol changes handed down to the medical community in the name of COVID, I began to question the novel mandates being forced upon our society. Did Nurses and Physicians forget the oath they swore to uphold?

Post-Midterm Probes Will Force Media to Report Real News

Assuming that Republicans take back control of the House in November — count on seeing a flip of oversight committee chairs release a high-tide floodgate of active probes into a myriad of potentially criminal actions. The big question is whether failing news business models will take precedents over their progressive politics, whereby they simply can’t afford to pass up…

Bridging the Gap Between Breggin and Desmet

Breggin is a representative of the very general turning away from Freud, that always risks throwing out the baby with the bath water. Desmet is a student of Freud but is unclear about how much he has already deviated from him, in particular by dropping his allegiance to materialism. Still, he seems to be very unclear, if not wholly mystified, about the alternative…

Union Interference, Government Oversight, Teachers Have Been Bamboozled

The United States started at the top of the educational ladder. Yet, after years of union interference that has brought in much government oversight, the US is now far behind on almost every level. While other countries worry about creating top mathematics programs, we are worried about what students want to be called and if they prefer a litter box or toilet…

Science of COVID, Spike Protein, and mRNA injections

America Out Loud PULSE with Dr. Vaughn & Dr. Tankersley – In addition to origin, the spike protein is the crux of the issue. It is the part of the virus that was manipulated to enter human cells. It is the viral protein that caused untoward damage to humans from both an inflammatory and coagulation perspective. Amazingly, it is this protein that was selected by our scientific elites…

The Fundamental Transformation of America Must Be Stopped!

The Fundamental Transformation of America Must Be Stopped!

So how do we stop it? Well, to use the left’s own words against them, we stop it “by any means necessary.” First off, never ever give up your guns. Secondly, take back our education system. Time to stop the communist indoctrination of our children. Thirdly, insist on fairness, and unbiased news media. If they refuse, hit them in the pocketbook by letting their advertisers know how you feel, and…

Economic Marxism – An Ideology Built on Lies

Economic Marxism – An Ideology Built on Lies

The lies on which both Economic and Social Marxism rely present the ideology as a pursuit of justice. In each case, the opposite of justice is produced because the life and rights of the individual are disregarded and replaced by the factional pandering on which the Marxist ruling class relies for generating its political capital. Each of Marxism’s lies is laid bare against the power of the truth on which our nation was founded…

The death of one young woman has ignited the fire of hate by the citizens against the ungodly theocratic regime.

America’s Growing National Police State is Staggering

America’s Growing National Police State is Staggering

It’s not just the IRS that has armed its agents. HHS purchased four million rounds of ammunition, 100 guns that included five sub-machine guns, and 189 other automatic weapons. Why? The Social Security Administration purchased 800,000 rounds of ammo and body armor for its agents. Why? The Dept of Veterans Affairs purchased eleven million rounds of ammunition. Why?
