Whenever We Can

Sometimes a small, off-the-cuff remark can be more chilling and more important than either a planned speech or a spontaneous bombast. What IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said as an assurance to the House Ways and Means subcommittee on health is one such chilling and important off-the-cuff remark

Whenever we can, we follow the law.

— IRS Commissioner John Koskinen

Frankly, I can think of no statement more important or more chilling than Koskinen’s simple “assurance” that the IRS obeys the law whenever they can. Whenever the head of a huge and well-armed federal agency such as the IRS, with the power to destroy Americans’ lives wholesale, calmly admits that, in order to accomplish whatever missions the Obama Regime assigns them they sometimes ignore the law, that is terrifying.

It means that either the IRS, and who knows how many other federal agencies given the climate that Obama has fostered, consider the laws that bind them to be mere guidelines and suggestions, or that those laws are so complex, convoluted, and contradictory that they cannot be followed in a variety of circumstances.
