Working for the Democratic Party: The harassment of conservative groups by the IRS was planned and run by officials in Washington, D.C., according to a retiring IRS lawyer who will testify Thursday in the House.

Retiring IRS lawyer Carter C. Hull implicated the IRS Chief Counsel’s office, headed by Obama appointee William J. Wilkins, and Lois Lerner, the embattled head of the IRS’ exempt organizations office, in the IRS targeting scandal and made clear that the targeting started in Washington, according to leaked interviews that Hull granted to the Oversight Committee in advance of Thursday’s hearing.

It appears he is naming names. Thursday’s hearing should be quite interesting.

    I fear that the hearings will not be as “interesting” as they should be, because the House GOP leadership lacks the necessary fearlessness to charge Lois Lerner with the perjury she has committed. Likewise the other top IRS officials. They also lack the courage to do what is desperately needed right now: defund the IRS. Just as with Obamacare and a host of other corrupt federal programs, the House Republicans since 2011 have had the power to bring them down be defunding them. But instead they have done nothing, and the American taxpayers (no longer the American people, because more than half of the people reap benefits without taxation) are suffering. If the Republican Party needs to split apart because of this intransigence, then so be it — and woe to anyone in the party who fails to understand what is at stake.

    Could this be the moment of the birth of the American Constitution Party?

    History tells us that when communism is thrust upon a people that the push back can be extreme, like the rise of Hitler. Keeping this in mind I ask a question: With America in its current situation and in the dominating position it finds itself, and with the level of technology that exists to monitor its people, are We The People just spinning our wheels when we talk about where and what our country should be?
