If the IRS isn’t Building an Army, Why Have they Spent $11 Million+ on Guns and Ammo?

BREAKING: 



The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) seems to be building an army.

The IRS spent nearly $11 million on guns, ammunition and “military-style equipment” between 2006 and 2014, according to a new report. IRS investment in heavy firearms and tactical gear is a new trend for the agency, but it follows a pattern of militarization repeated throughout the executive branch of the government.

In “The Militarization of America,” a report by OpenTheBooks.com, examines the kinds of weapons and tactical equipment federal agencies have purchased over the past ten years. The report shows that the IRS and other non-law enforcement agencies rapidly increased purchases of military gear in the past decade.

The amount the IRS spends on weapons and equipment has risen since 2006 from around half a million to $1,070,456 in 2014. Purchases of guns and ammunition spiked in 2011 to more than $2 million, according to the report. Over the same period, the number of special agents the IRS employed declined from more than 3,000 to just about 2,000 in 2014.

“The recent spikes in IRS purchasing could be related to the increase in recent ‘Identify Theft’ crimes and the prosecution of those crimes into sophisticated gang activity,” the report says. IRS special agents are armed with Smith and Wesson M&P15s, as well as Remington shotguns and Glock .40 caliber handguns.

The IRS Criminal Investigation division, which famously captured Al Capone, boasts their conviction rate is consistently more than 90 percent, higher than any other federal law enforcement agency.

While the number of IRS special agents has declined, the number of total federal agents has increased sharply. “The number of non-Defense Department federal officers authorized to make arrests and carry firearms (200,000) now exceeds the number of U.S. Marines (182,000),” former Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn and OpenTheBooks founder and CEO Andrew Andrzejewski said in a Wall Street Journal column.

“What exactly is the Obama administration up to?” Coburn and Andrzejewski ask.

The OpenTheBooks report shows other primarily administrative federal agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency, The Department of Veterans Affairs, The Department of Health and Human Services, the Food and Drug Administration and the Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Inspection Service, are also purchasing guns and ammunition gear.

Congress officially recognized OpenTheBooks as a private oversight organization in Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006, legislation co-sponsored by Coburn and President Barack Obama, who was at that time a senator from Illinois.

I hope nobody thinks that a simple thing like an election will ever get our Usurper-in-Chief out of office? He apparently read the book Hugo Chavez wrote about taking over Venezuela, and is setting up his own army to stay in power?

It is part of a longer plan passed down to our future president.

Barry- he [WILL] leave... if we have to fight his army- we [WILL] win..!

once upon a time, way back in ancient history... within most of our lifetimes, in a more sane America when common sense still held it's own in our culture, it was commonly understood that fed/gov agencies absolutely should NOT be armed (with extremely rare exception). And it was also understood that they were merely advisory agencies, who should never have anything close to lawmaking authorities. 

now they're all armed to the hilt and operating as lawmakers. 

The WAR is coming sooner than some may believe - but we [WILL] prevail..! Bloody and Horrifying it may be... but we [WILL] fight and Prevail..!

His main objective is to stay in power folks. He will try in two ways. One he is furnishing weapons and ammo to our enemies around our country or he is building his civilian police force  that he promised in his speeches of 08 that majority of people did not hear or understand plain English he used. Bottom line he wants to become King of USA and he will unless the people are willing to fight with everything they have. Live in freedom or live under Islamic Muslim rule.

The famous words; Give me liberty or give me death..! We [WILL] fight..! We are AMERICANS... We [WILL] fight and WIN..!

And in the meantime the libbles are doing their damndest to disarm us!

I live in DC and have been wondering about this exact thing for many years. It seems like every federal agencey has its own police force and swat team now. Somebody tell me why the Government Printing Office (no they are not the peeps who print money) needs its own police force?

To make matters worse, take the uniforms off some of those people or listen to them talk to each other and you would swear they are common DC gang bangers.

I did not know this so I checked. Lo and behold, you are completely right.

GPO Uniformed Police (Government Printing Office)

Mission. The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) Uniformed Police Branch is the law enforcement component of the GPO Security Services Directorate. Our mission is to provide a safe and secure environment for personnel and assets at GPO. We achieve this mission by:

Funny, isn't it?? More and more antiterrorism prevention(?) measures by our dictators, all while opening the front, back and side doors to every dirty alien from every part of the world.

 God help us.

That is because that is exactly what they are.. DC Gang Bangers..!

When it breaks loose - give them HELL with no mercy..!

If you are good enough to surround a multitude of the bastards - make them cry and beg for mercy before you pop them in the heads..!

One of the things Obama said was he was going to have another army it seems he has done it. I have friends that were in the service with me after retiring they choose to work for the IRS as investigators they have been there now 10 years in that time they have always carried a handgun. The biggest difference today is when they go to work now it's like there still in the Middle East with all the Muslims now working there. Killing people with taxes isn't good enough, now there going to use guns it seems...

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

Image result for Pam Karlan

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses. https://twitter.com/NoahRFeldman/status/839185127494254592

Trump's wiretap tweets raise risk of impeachment http://bv.ms/2mY1ueX  via @BV

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
