Reader Joe sent this list in. It’s in response to this Ann Althouse post on the indictment of Dinesh D’Souza.

I am not a rocket scientist, but there seems to be some kind of pattern here…maybe you can tell me what it is… (includes items from Ace’s co-blogger Maetenloch)

1.  IRS Targets Conservative groups - IRS auditor reaffirms that conservatives, not liberals, were targeted

2.  IRS Scandal – FBI Closes Case - Obama FBI Closed Case on IRS Targeting Scandal Before Interviewing Single One of 292 Targeted Groups (Video)

3.  IRS Harassed Sarah Palin’s Dad - Revealed: Obama’s IRS Harassed Sarah Palin’s Dad Six Times Since 2008

4.  Federal Court Indicts Director of Anti-Obama Film –  It Begins… Director of Anti-Obama Film “2016: Obama’s America” Indicted by Federal Court

5.  New York Governor’s Dept of Labor Subpoenas James O’Keefe, Project Veritas - NY Governor Cuomo Subpoenas Conservative Activist James O’Keefe

6.  IRS Harasses Secret Hollywood Conservative Group – Demands List of Members

7.  Latina Actress Fired After Appearing in Ad for Tea Party Candidate (Video)

8.  Silencing the Tea Party With New IRS Rules

9.  IRS Targets Veterans, Demands Private Records Of American Legion

10. VIDEO>>> Chuck Schumer Calls on IRS to Target Tea Party Activities

11. Obama Blames FOX News, Rush Limbaugh for His Failures …(Too Much Free Speech)

12. NYC Mayor De Blasio Agrees With Cuomo: Conservatives Need to Get Out (Audio)

This is starting to make Nixon look like a walk in the park…

A pattern indeed, that stretches back to 2010 and the IRS abuse, or 2009 if you include Obama’s joke that he would use the IRS against his opponents.

Here is one more fact. In 2012, Obama’s campaign deliberately disabled safeguards on its website, allowing it to collect illegal foreign donations. It did accept illegal foreign donations; to what extent is unknown. Those donations, and the campaign staff who disabled the safeguards, were never investigated or prosecuted. The media never showed much interest in investigating, either.

Some more still-smoldering lefty idiocy from the fake Marine.

Valerie Jarrett: "After we win this election, it's our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don't forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won't be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go."

They went after Rosen, a Fox News reporter.

They arrested and jailed a known innocent man to cover up Benghazi.

They appointed Eric Holder to investigate, Eric Holder.

They instructed the EPA to conduct anti-capitalism programs.

They had the Senate enact the nuclear option.

They conducted secret talks with Iran for a year.

They hired EVERY SINGLE ONE in the DOJ.

But some say...you are "an hysteric" if you suggest this is a pattern of behavior. That it is "hyperbole" to point it out. It is an "exaggeration" to suggest it is an act in concert and furtherance of lawless, Gangsta Government, with an extreme radical bent.

Meanwhile, the Republicans look so cute and angelic sleeping there, it would be a shame to wake them. After all, they would have to form another couple of committees.

A) The Committee to develop the Ministry of Stern Notes against conspiracy to shred the Constitution.

B) The Committee to bring czars and czarinas before Congress to refuse to testify or provide documents about the conspiracy to shred the Constitution.

Never let it be said that the Republicans fail to stand ready to tickle them with a feather. But, let's not wake them from their nap. After all, it's only freedom that's being destroyed...not their re-election chances.

Just a crazy idea, but has anyone thought about posting any of this on Wikipedia? Could be fun.

yea yea yea blah blah blah...I don't think anyone disputes what is happening the question is what are we going to do about it? Nothing. NADA, Zip Zilch Zipp...you know why because all of us are comfortable. Certainly I am not going to the barricades anytime soon and that is the ONLY thing that will work. These thugs know it...and they know we are not going to push it. So can we all just shut up and enjoy our slavery?

We are NOT voting our way of this mess.

Time for a few special prosecutors. We need more people to take the fifth.

What Gov. Christie allegedly did with the traffic patterns in Fort Lee, NJ looks like chicken feed next to what Obama and his gaggle of thugs have done and continue to do to certain segments of the American population. Regardless, Christie tried playing nice,nice with Democrat jackals and curs, and wound up getting severely bitten. Good lesson. You can't extend a hand in friendship to a rabid animal and not get rabies.

isn't Holder the one that helped get Marc Rich a pardon, while the man was on the run in exile

isn't Holder the one that helped get FALN terrorists pardoned

Isn't Holder the one that wouldn't take the voter intimidation case to trial, because of some notion that black scan't intimidate others because they are a minority--so standing around threatening others, with nightsticks and wearing paramilitary uniforms is acceptible to him.

And the list goes on, and where is congress, but still asking for paperwork, when they should be filing indictments.

The pattern is well-established. The Leftist DAs and judges rule in all the Blues. The natural fascistic tendencies of Obama the Third Worlder and down-in-the-blood Marxist are emerging. These people rig ballots, take huge amounts of contributions from Gaza and elsewhere - and do this. USSA indeed.

The shame of this is the Democrats aren't even doing this in secret. Here we have Senator Schumer openly encouraging the IRS to, not only continue to go after the tea party, but to be MORE vigorous. How can a sitting Senator, sworn to defend the Constitution, openly say what Schumer did, and not be called on it by the media? It's simple, collusion. The MSM refuses to do their job, when it comes to Democrats. I know the Nazi analogies are generally out of place, but this IS how you get a Hitler. When the IRS targeting of political groups becomes the norm, we will officially be a banana republic.

During the Bush 41 administration, lefties railed endlessly about being "oppressed". But, every case they could actually cite was private action: being asked to.leave a mall, being asked to not wear a particular shirt on a plane, former fans refusing to support performers who made political statements....

Here's a diff take: why do we have a gov w/ such a large scope & mechanisms that this stuff is even possible? If the tax system (for example) was simply x% of your income - no exceptions, no deductions, no carve outs... [and was reasonably low], the IRS would be reduced to a phone bank of hounds chasing people down for late payment. Instead, what we have now is a monstrosity that makes every human (born or not) in violation of contradictory laws.

No, the IRS would still do what it does now. They would be making sure you didn't hide any income.

IMHO, the best way to deal with the IRS is to make them conform to the standards we have for the criminal justice system.

Yup. Even with a national sales tax the IRS would still be around. I can't think of one government agency that's been done away with or shrunk in my lifetime.
