IRS agents carrying shotguns to Kill Conservatives?

The issue of Internal Revenue Service agents carrying weapons may warrant further scrutiny amid the nationwide distrust of the agency for targeting conservative organizations.

The IRS is also the chief enforcer of Obamacare requirements.

In 2010, the Federal Business Opportunities website posted an IRS request for a quote on the price of shotguns for the agency’s Criminal Investigation Division.

The site sought a quote for 60 Remington Model 870 Police 12-gauge pump-action shotguns, the only weapons authorized for IRS duty.

The IRS Criminal Division includes roughly 2,700 special agents who are required to carry a firearm.

According to the basic qualifications for a position as an IRS special agent for the criminal division, “applicants must carry and use a firearm.”

In October 2012, J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration, released a report charging IRS agents need more thorough firearms training and must better report accidental firings of their guns.

“Special agents not properly trained in the use of firearms could endanger the public, as well as their fellow special agents, and expose the IRS to potential litigation over injuries or damages,” George said at the time.

George said IRS agents accidentally fired their weapons 11 times during fiscal years 2009 through fiscal 2011.

Meet Obama’s Pick for Labor Secretary: ‘A Radical’s Radical’

President Barack Obama gave a glowing rollout Monday to Thomas Perez, his choice to lead the Labor Department after an aggressive stint as the nation’s chief civil rights enforcer. But the nomination quickly ran into trouble as a Republican senator declared he would block the nomination until GOP concerns about Perez’s Justice Department tenure are addressed.

Further, former DOJ attorney J. Christian Adams alleged that Perez a “radical’s radical” in an interview on Mark Levin’s radio show.

“This is a man for whom law is a nuisance … this is a man who is advancing a radical agenda by using his power in the Obama administration,” Adams told Levin.

As TheBlaze’s Meredith Jessup points out, Adams also alleges that Perez provided false testimony in the Black Panther voter intimidation case.

In 2010, former DOJ civil rights attorney J. Christian Adams resigned in protest of the Obama administration’s handling of a [voter] intimidation case involving the New Black Panther Party. A month later, Adams told Fox News that Perez provided false testimony before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights about the Black Panther case. In his testimony, Perez told the commission that the facts of the case – NBPP members dressed in military-style fatigues standing in front of a polling location armed with billy clubs — didn’t amount to voter intimidation under the law.

Homeland Security Now Armed With Enough Ammo for 24 Year-Long Iraq War

Homeland Security is now armed with enough ammunition for a 24 year-long Iraq War.

Homeland Security is now armed with enough ammunition for a 24 year-long Iraq War.

The government reportedly repositioned several of their Homeland Security ammunition containers recently.

The containers (like those pictured) are usually painted olive drab and are unmarked except for indistinguishable numbers/letters probably for inventory, routing, etc.

Investor’s Business Daily reported:

In a puzzling, unexplained development, the Obama administration has been buying and storing vast amounts of ammunition in recent months, with the Department of Homeland Security just placing another order for an additional 21.6 million rounds.

Several other agencies of the federal government also began buying large quantities of bullets last year. The Social Security Administration, for instance, not normally considered on the frontlines of anything but dealing with seniors, explained that its purchase of millions of rounds was for special agents’ required quarterly weapons qualifications. They must be pretty poor shots.

But DHS has been silent about its need for numerous orders of bullets in the multiple millions. Indeed, Examiner writer Ryan Keller points out Janet Napolitano’s agency illegally redacted information from some ammunition solicitation forms following media inquiries.

According to one estimate, just since last spring DHS has stockpiled more than 1.6 billion bullets, mainly .40 caliber and 9mm. That’s sufficient firepower to shoot every American about five times. Including illegal immigrants.

To provide some perspective, experts estimate that at the peak of the Iraq war American troops were firing around 5.5 million rounds per month. At that rate, DHS is armed now for a 24-year Iraq war.

Mark Levin: Obama Background Check Rant

US Court Rules Obama’s Recess Appointments Were Unconstitutional

The Washington Times reported:

A federal appeals court has overturned President Obama’s controversial recess appointments from last year, arguing he abused his powers and acted when the Senate was not actually in a recess.

The three-judge panel’s ruling is a major blow to Mr. Obama. The judges ruled that the appointments Mr. Obama made to the National Labor Relations Board are illegal, and the board no longer has a quorum to operate.

But the ruling has even broader constitutional significance, with the judges arguing that the president’s recess appointment powers don’t apply to “intrasession” appointments — those made when Congress has left town for a few days or weeks.

The judges signaled the power only applies after Congress has adjourned sine die, which is a legislative term of art that signals the end to a long work period. In modern times, it means the president could only use his powers when Congress quits business at the end of a year.
