There is no longer the rule of law in America, and government is the worst offender.
The Obama administration has become a lawless administration.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) under the Obama administration targeted conservatives and Christians for special scrutiny and even plotted to imprison conservatives. Even when it was discovered, IRS officials like Lois Lerner were not held accountable, which means the IRS can violate the rights of conservatives and Christians with impunity.
The latest case in point: Earlier today, the Gollum-like IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told a Congressional hearing that the IRS doesn’t have a problem with illegal immigrants using fraudulent Social Security numbers to file their taxes, because they’re doing that for “a legitimate reason”.
By “legitimate reason,” Koskinen means tax revenue.
In other words, for the Obama administration, two crimes — (1) being in the U.S. illegally, and (2) using a fraudulent Social Security number — make right because the end (tax revenue) justifies everything.
Rudy Takala reports for Washington Examiner, April 12, 2016:
The IRS is struggling to ensure that illegal immigrants are able to illegally use Social Security numbers for legitimate purposes, the agency’s head told senators on Tuesday, without allowing the numbers to be used for “bad” reasons.
IRS Commissioner John Koskinen made the statement in response to a question from Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind., during a session of the Senate Finance Committee about why the IRS appears to be collaborating with taxpayers who file tax returns using fraudulent information. Coats said that his staff had discovered the practice after looking into agency procedures.
“What we learned is that … the IRS continues to process tax returns with false W-2 information and issue refunds as if they were routine tax returns, and say that’s not really our job,” Coats said. “We also learned the IRS ignores notifications from the Social Security Administration that a name does not match a Social Security number, and you use your own system to determine whether a number is valid.”
Asked to explain those practices, Koskinen replied, “What happens in these situations is someone is using a Social Security number to get a job, but they’re filing their tax return with their [taxpayer identification number].” What that means, he said, is that “they are undocumented aliens … . They’re paying taxes. It’s in everybody’s interest to have them pay the taxes they owe.”
As long as the information is being used only to fraudulently obtain jobs, Koskinen said, rather than to claim false tax returns, the agency has an interest in helping them. “The question is whether the Social Security number they’re using to get the job has been stolen. It’s not the normal identity theft situation,” he said. […]
He added that the agency wanted to differentiate that “bad” misuse of personal data from other uses. “There are questions about whether there’s a way we could simply advise people… . A lot of the time those Social Security numbers are borrowed from friends and acquaintances and they know they’ve been used, other times they don’t.”
He also said that the agency is working to determine “the most effective way to do with this without necessarily having people decide not to file their taxes… . Obviously the priority is to have the IRS collecting those taxes.“
