Cruz Says… Abolish the IRS and Put Their Agents on Our Southern Border

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) rallied Tea Party patriots around him to help abolish the IRS at the “Audit the IRS” rally on Wednesday in Washington, D.C. Cruz began by stating that he was a “little bit confused” by the fact that “The New York Times told me the Tea Party was dead. The IRS told me the Tea Party was dead.” However, Cruz said that “There was nothing more encouraging that millions of Americans all across this country standing up for liberty, standing up for the free market and standing up for the Constitution.” He then launched into a tirade against the Internal Revenue Service, calling for its abolishment.

“What’s happened with the IRS is an outrage,” Cruz said, referring to the recent scandal where they have been caught targeting political enemies of Barack Obama. “It is an abuse of power and it fits into the pattern of the Obama administration of abusing government power and then misleading the American people about it.”

He then admonished Barack Obama, saying he “needs to tell the truth.”

Cruz pointed out that when Nixon tried to use the IRS against his political enemies it was wrong and it’s still wrong when the Obama administration does it.

I love his idea!  I wish I knew what I could do to help get it done.

To that end: I'd like feedback on whether other Tea Party members feel writing and calling our "leaders" in Washington and our state capitols does any good?

I don't care where you put them nor do wish ill of any IRS employees. I only want the IRS agency itself gone like a bad memory. It MUST be done. It is the only way to begin restoring the people's trust in their government if that's even possible at this point.

And while their at it,...how'bout nullifying OBAMACARE, and putting the 16,000 I.R.S. agents, done on the boarder!! That would be a useful army!! They can keep their pay!! And it would take care of their 'PRE-MEDITATED' DEATH PANLES!! Sounds too practical?? Not to me!! SEMPER-FI !! LarryK.Parent,Naples,FL.

Please dont put them on the border.  They have done enough damage were they are now.  On the border you can bet they will make it so open the fence will not be like glass but like gas (air) to all who want to pass and say they will vote Democrat.

GReat but a little too simple to say and never gonna happen--

Presidential corruption is an achievement black activists need not aspire to. Nixons' failing has already been matched and greatly surpassed (by guess who ?).

Go Cruz!

my take on all this--- is "WE THE PEOPLE" MUST TAKE THE HOUSE AND SENATE IN 2014!!!

I'M VOTING ALL CONSERVATIVE (REPUBLICAN). IT'S THE ONLY CHANCE THIS COUNTRY HAS 

TO STAY TOGEATHER AS A 'SOVERIGN; NATION.

OTHERWISE IT BELONGS TO OBAMA AND THE 'COMMUNIST' DEMOCRATS.

Senator Cruz for our next President!

AMEN TO THAT!! I want ALLEN WEST, to be Govenor of Florida, or TEXAS!! He would be an awesome replacement for CRUZ!! We have to get a strong CONSEVERTIVE Hhe in Florida to kick the hell out of Ben Nelson,(and Charlie ' CAMILLIAN' NarsiCrist as well!! We can't afford to give up Florida!! Maybe we can attach a vote ammendment for Rick Scott to stay on another 2 years?? Hmmm? SEMPER-FI!! larry K.Parent,Naples,FL.   www.truelogicbiz.co/  work-from-home.

Obama would love this; send the IRs agents to the southern border. The IRS agents are trained, see the video of AR-15 training at the Maryland firing range. Now they can shoot at REAL criminals, that shoot back. It's called "redistribution of wealth". We don't need to hire more federal employees, just transfer to the Southern Border Command or quit. Remember some of the original FBI were accountants.......

What a great idea.....and king o's blue shirts...organizing for America Ss can stand there with them....they are training on AR-15's too according to the pictures I see....

ALERT ALERT

Newt Says What The Rest Of Us Are Thinking:
It’s Time To Throw Peter Strzok In Jail

Disgraced FBI special agent Peter Strzok, a senior member of the bureau who gained notoriety in recent months over his anti-Trump text messages to a colleague, was grilled for nearly 10 hours during a joint congressional committee hearing on Thursday.

At issue was Strzok’s anti-Trump texts to former FBI lawyer and lover Lisa Page that coincided with his leading of the investigations into both former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server scandal and the alleged Trump/Russia 2016 election collusion, as well as his involvement in the subsequent Robert Mueller special counsel probe.

The hearing proved to be a heated battle, as Strzok displayed an arrogant smugness in defiance of pointed questions from Republicans that he largely danced around, while Democrats sought to upend and undermine the entire hearing with a plethora of interruptions, parliamentary maneuvers and outright praise for the man who helped let Clinton off the hook while ferociously targeting Trump.

Former House speaker and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich was less than impressed with Strzok’s performance and cooperation in the hearing and suggested during an appearance on Fox Business that the FBI agent should be held in contempt of Congress.

“I think they have to move to hold him in contempt and throw him in jail,” Gingrich said of Congress and Strzok.

“This is a person who is willfully standing up and refusing to appear as a congressional witness and he was a government employee at the time,” he continued.

“He has every obligation to inform the legislative branch, and I don’t think they have any choice except to move a motion of contempt because he is fundamentally — and so is his girlfriend (Page) — they’re both fundamentally in violation of the entire constitutional process,” he added.

Page had been subpoenaed to appear before Congress on Wednesday but refused to appear, saying she’d been unable to review relevant documents prior to the scheduled hearing, a closed-door hearing that has since been rescheduled for Friday.

Gingrich was not the only one who thought Strzok deserved to be held in contempt of Congress, as House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte informed Strzok that he remained at risk of such during the hearing, according to The Daily Caller.

That warning from Goodlatte came after Strzok had refused to answer a straightforward question posed by House Oversight Committee chairman Trey Gowdy, regarding how many people Strzok had personally interviewed between a specific set of dates in relation to the Clinton email investigation.

“Mr. Strzok, please be advised that you can either comply with the committee’s direction to answer the question or refuse to do so,” Goodlatte stated. “The latter of which will place you in risk of a contempt citation and potential criminal liability. Do you understand that? The question is directed to the witness.”

Strzok still refused to answer, citing instructions received from his counsel and the FBI to not answer certain questions on certain topics.

Goodlatte replied, “Mr. Strzok, in a moment we will continue with the hearing, but based on your refusal to answer the question, at the conclusion of the day we will be recessing the hearing and you will be subject to recall to allow the committee to consider proceeding with a contempt citation.”

It is unclear if Goodlatte and the committee ultimately did consider a contempt citation for Strzok following the contentious hearing, nor is it clear if Page will be held in contempt for blowing off her subpoenaed appearance on Wednesday.

Hopefully Congress will follow through on the threats of contempt followed by actual jail time against Strzok and Page in response to their uncooperative behavior and failure to appear when subpoenaed, if only to ensure that future witnesses called before Congress for sensitive or contentious hearings don’t think they can get away with the same sort of behavior.

TEA PARTY TARGET

Cops Sent To Seize Veteran’s Guns Without A Warrant, He Refused To Turn Them Over

“No one from the state was going to take my firearms without due process,” says Leonard Cottrell, after successfully staving off law enforcement and the courts from confiscating his firearms. Cottrell, an Iraq War veteran, was at work when he received a phone call from his wife. The cops were there, busting in to take his guns away. It all started after a casual conversation his son had at school.

Ammoland reports:

Police said their visit was sparked by a conversation that Leonard Cottrell Jr.’s 13-year-old son had had with another student at the school. Cottrell said he was told his son and the other student were discussing security being lax and what they would have to do to escape a school shooting at Millstone Middle School.

The conversation was overheard by another student, who went home and told his parents, and his mother panicked. The mom then contacted the school, which contacted the State Police, according to Cottrell.

The visit from the troopers came around 10 p.m. on June 14, 2018, Cottrell said, a day after Gov. Phil Murphy signed several gun enforcement bills into law.

After several hours, Cottrell said police agreed not to take the guns but to allow him to move them to another location while the investigation continued.

“They had admitted several times that my son made no threat to himself or other students or the school or anything like that,” he said.

Cottrell said he made it very clear to the police that he was “not going to willingly give up my constitutional rights where there’s no justifiable cause, no warrants, no nothing.”

The troopers searched his son’s room and found nothing, Cottrell said.

“To appease everybody, I had my firearms stored someplace else,” he said. “That way, during the course of the investigation, my son doesn’t have access to them and it’s on neutral ground and everything and everybody’s happy.”

“In the Garden State, the usual approach is to confiscate first and ask questions later, and victims of this approach often don’t know their rights. ‎In this case, the victim pushed back and confiscation was avoided — but the circumstances surrounding the incident are outrageous. A student expressing concern over lack of security is not a reason to send police to the student’s home — but it might be a reason to send police to the school to keep students and teachers safe” said Scott L. Bach, executive director of the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs and a member of the NRA board of directors.

NJ.com adds:

Cottrell, a disabled U.S. Army veteran who served three tours during “Operation Iraqi Freedom,” owns a shotgun and a pistol. He has all the correct permits to own the firearms, he said, and predominately uses the shotgun to hunt.

He said his wife allowed the officers to enter the home, and with her permission, they searched his son’s room — but they did not find any weapons, he said. The officers, he said, didn’t have a warrant but still wanted to take his guns. Cottrell wouldn’t let them.

“No one from the state was going to take my firearms without due process,” he said Thursday.

He said the attempted seizure resulted because of a new law Gov. Phil Murphy signed into law that makes it easier for police to confiscate guns when someone in the state poses a threat to themselves or others. The law is part of a broader statewide effort to make New Jersey’s gun laws even tougher amid the national outcry for more gun control in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Cottrell said the officers “danced around the issue” when he confronted them about the new law.

A New Jersey State Police spokesman declined to answer questions about whether this incident had anything to do with the new gun laws.

In an email, Sgt. First Class Jeff Flynn said, “Troopers responded to Mr. Cottrell’s residence in reference to the report of a possible school threat. Based on their investigation, it was determined that Mr. Cottrell’s weapons did not need to be seized.”

David Codrea, writing for Ammoland, further added:

To appease everybody, I had my firearms stored someplace else,” New Jersey gun owner and Army veteran Leonard Cottrell Jr. told New Jersey 101.5 after a June 14 visit from State Police,. “That way, during the course of the investigation, my son doesn’t have access to them and it’s on neutral ground and everything and everybody’s happy.”

Cottrell was recalling state troopers showing up at his door to confiscate firearms after his 13-year-old son was overheard discussing lax school safety with a friend.

Indoctrinated by a pervasive snitch culture — one that never seems to deter the blatantly obvious demonic nutjobs — the eavesdropping student told his parents, who told school administrators, who in turn called the cops. (Note “If you see something, say something” carries risks of its own – if you report the wrong person, you could end up smeared as a “hater.”)

“Cottrell said he made it very clear to the police that he was ‘not going to willingly give up my constitutional rights where there’s no justifiable cause, no warrants, no nothing,’” the report continued. Despite that, his home is now a “gun free zone” and that has been publicized by the media. He has, in fact, willingly ceded those rights, and by his own words in order to make authorities “happy.”

Before judging him for that, consider the environment that is New Jersey. Then consider the overwhelming force the state can bring to bear, and its predisposition to using it, especially if it’s to enforce citizen disarmament. It’s easy to anonymously declare “Molon Labe” on the internet. In meatspace, resistance is more effective when the aggressor doesn’t get to dictate the time and place, especially if that place is your home and you have family inside.

Appeasing gun-grabbers, generally couched as “compromise,” is impossible. It’s like throwing a scrap of flesh to a circling pack of jackals and expecting them to be sated and leave you alone — instead of sensing opportunity and fear, and moving in closer.
