No Surprise Here
NO SURPRISE HERE

From the day he entered office, Biden has been working to impoverish American citizens by interfering with their financial self-sufficiency with the goal of destroying it. He cancelled the Keystone Pipeline and with it the scheduled employment of several citizens.
During the “Pandemic” he allowed the CDC to impose an unauthorized rent moratorium which not only negatively affected the income of large realtors, it crushed that of some small ones. There were those who had to sell their rental properties, the income from which they paid their mortgages. Even with doing that their homes were sometimes foreclosed on.
Unnecessarily restrictive rules caused many small businesses to fold. Then the rest of his “emergency welfare” in the form of unneeded, wasteful, inappropriately awarded “Stimulus” made it difficult for employers to find employees. Potential employees collected more money not working. That caused even more businesses to fail.
His “Inflation Reduction Act” is a bad joke because he caused the inflation with his previous reckless and needless spending and this law will cause more. But it is no laughing matter because it imposes higher and additional taxes on the American people will not reduce inflation.
Now he is trying get 87,000 new IRS agents hired supposedly to “audit citizens”. But the facts suggest something else: raids not audits. One of the new positions to be filled is that of “IRS Criminal Investigation Special Agent” which will require a willingness to work more than 50 hours, which may be irregular. They must be on call24/7 including holidays and weekends. The person must carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force as well as being able to participate in arrest, execution of search warrants, and other dangerous assignments”.
Furthermore, such activities are deemed within the scope of the job because “no matter what the source of the income, both legal and illegal, has the potential of becoming crimes which fall within the investigative jurisdiction of the IRS Criminal Investigation”. (Townhall, August 11, 2022). Apparently, Former President Trump is the first victim of such procedure.
However, as stated in the Wall Street Journal, “these new efforts to Enforce the tax code will be focused on the middle and upper middle classes because that is where the money is”. It is also where those with the courage to oppose Biden and the Leftists are found. Wealthier people would only be at risk, if somehow the criticized or otherwise interfered with his agenda.
This is not only to destroy economic freedom and independence but also negate citizen’s rights. Any government intrusion will be deemed excusable under this procedure. Any form of resistance could put a person’s life and that of their loved ones in jeopardy. People will be cowed into silence because of an overarching fear of a tax raid.
Our hope now must be in concerted efforts by citizens and Congressional representatives who opposed Biden and his henchmen. Those members of Congress constantly say what they and the newly elected will do after the November elections. They do not seem to see that if this IRS Gestapo is allowed, candidates opposing Biden and the Leftists will fear running for office. Indeed, citizens will fear voting as Biden’s mafia will have no problem in corrupting the process and possibly revealing their identity and choice.
Congress persons speak in the halls of Congress, in Town Halls, and on news programs. But they are not reaching the uninformed, indifferent, ignorant and inept of the populace. It is time that in addition to their usual approach, they proceed with the intensity that they do in their political campaigns. They need to speak directly and more frequently to constituents about what is going on.
That means more trips back home and going where the people are. Virtual communication such as Zoom is also available. They and/or their assistants need to telephone constituents. That does not mean robo calls. Tell them to write and call the White House when the problem is being generated from there.
Citizens should also write and call the offices of presumed supporters of Biden. Many have no concept of what is being planned.
In addition, Citizens must speak to people they know. They need to show them the articles. Refer them to news programs that tell the story. Encourage them to write and make the calls, as well as encouraging others to do the same.
The Biden Ministry of Truth was stopped by activism as was Biden’s proposed bill to track bank accounts of citizens with over $600 in annual transactions.
In conclusion, the Executive Branch is totally corrupt, the Judicial Branch is under attack, Congressional Representatives must work to stir the informed and educate the uninformed. The things Biden has down as is planning can and will destroy their lives, as well as those of citizens, if they do not act.
