87,000 More IRS Agents. Millions Of Rounds Of Ammo. Thousands Of Guns. Are You Scared Yet?

Last updated on August 18, 2022

Listen to this article:

In this article, I’m going to get into the excessive IRS Agents, guns, and ammo that our friendly Internal Revenue Service gets to play around with. I will also pontificate (My first time using that big ol’ word) on what that might mean to you and me, the average Joe, Jane (or Doorknob).

Matt Gaetz, Florida Congressman says the Internal Revenue Service has spent close to ¾ of a Billion taxpayer dollars ($725,000) stockpiling five million rounds of ammunition in 2022 alone[1].

To be fair, the thugs at the IRS have always had guns. At least in recent history[2]. I guess they decided to kick it up a notch.

“A 2018 report from the Government Accountability Office said the IRS’s Criminal Investigation Division had 2,148 law enforcement officers, 4,461 weapons—including 15 fully automatic firearms—and 5.05 million rounds of ammunition”.

The question is, why on earth would tax collectors need a Criminal Investigation Division armed with thousands of weapons, including machine guns and AR-15 style rifles, and MILLIONS OF BULLETS??

What kind of trouble does the IRS think they’re going to run into as tax collectors?

Why Are IRS Agents Being Weaponized?

“The Internal Revenue Service, with its 2,159 “Special Agents,” spent $21.3 million on guns, ammunition and military-style equipment between fiscal years 2006 and 2019. The agency stockpiled 4,500 guns and five million rounds of ammunition”.

Honestly, if you’re going to go around stealing money from working-class Americans, it probably should be at the point of a rifle.

And it is. And it does.

Biden Takes Guns From Americans – Then Arms The IRS To The Teeth!

It has always looked as if the liberal left hated guns but now we’re beginning to see the truth. They don’t hate guns, they want guns. They hate YOU.

Look, as law-abiding citizens, we’ve been dealing with ammo shortages for a long time. All the while, the government has been spending our money buying up millions of rounds – not for our military but for government agencies. Oh, and Ukraine obviously.

Let’s do a little simple math. Five million rounds for four thousand guns are well over eleven hundred bullets per gun!

IRS Agents need thousands of guns AND over a thousand bullets per gun?

One more math problem. Fourty five thousand 4,500 guns for a little over twenty one hundred “Special Agents” is more than two guns per agent.

So each IRS agent carries two guns and over two thousand rounds of ammo?

Does that sound right to you? Think about it. Let’s say you have a new breed of Al Capone, or over a thousand of them. 🤣

Does the IRS knock on their doors and say, “Mr. New Breed Capone, open up or we’re going to shoot our way into this audit”?

Let’s Look At IRS Agents Training To Shoot Their Way In

Hint: We Should All Be Scared – These People Have No Clue What They’re Doing!

No, that was just a movie. They’re going to call on the FBI (Or the DOJ) to set up an investigation and, if needed, the FBI will handle the gun stuff.

The IRS sits in an office with a computer and calculator trying to come up with enough evidence for the courts to put the crooks in jail for tax evasion when the other armed federal agencies run out of options. But they do get to say stuff like, “What’s the matter, can’t you talk with a gun in your mouth?

“You wanna know how to get Capone? They pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. That’s the Chicago way! And that’s how you get Capone. Now do you want to do that? Are you ready to do that? I’m offering you a deal. Do you want this deal?”

Jim Malone, The Untouchables 1987 [Trailer Link]

Well, that was the Treasury Department and Federal Agent Eliot Ness did carry a pump shotgun but that was a movie, right? There was a lot of shooting in that movie. It was awesome.

So it stands to reason that Biden wouldn’t want you to have those same guns. Things need to be extremely one-sided for the crooks to steal billions in cash without much resistance.

What About The 87,000 New IRS Agents? Is That True?

Do you remember a few months back when I wrote, “Fake News From The Right – It Comes From Both Sides”? That article somewhat fits with all of this, as it always does. Like House said, “Everybody lies.

So there aren’t allocations from the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) [Inflation boosting & spending bill with a lying azz title] for 87,000 New IRS Agents? Yes and no. That 87,000 estimate isn’t all ‘agents,’ it includes IT techs, customer service, and other personnel[3].

Internal Revenue Service’s strength of 165,000 personnel with thousands of guns and millions of bullets.

Nothing concerning here at all, right?

The IRS already has well over 78,000 employees, so adding another 87,000 puts the agency’s strength at a total of 165,000 ‘people’ working for the Internal Revenue Service – almost as many active-duty Marines (177,000)[4] as we have. Oh, with thousands of guns and millions of bullets.

The IRS Is Only After The Rich, Right?

Well, no. Not really. Certainly not the billionaires and very large businesses that can afford to fight the IRS and tie cases up for years. That’s common sense.

Here’s the rub – they think we’re stupid. Sadly, they’re probably right. We are being told that the threshold between the middle class and the rich is $400,000. That, on the surface, seems reasonable, as long as you don’t put more than two seconds of thought behind it.

Think about it, it might not increase the average working-class American’s chances of an audit, and they certainly aren’t looking for a fight with billionaires and companies like Facebook or Walmart.

So who’s left?

Small business!

Four hundred grand is a decent salary for a single-family household but that’s chump change when it comes to small businesses because they have incredibly high overhead.

A small business with a revenue of four hundred grand may struggle to profit anything at all and that’s with the owner trying to feed their family on breadcrumbs while they try to build the business.

“Specifically, I direct that any additional resources—including any new personnel or auditors that are hired—shall not be used to increase the share of small business or households below the $400,000 threshold that are audited relative to historical levels. This means that, contrary to the misinformation from opponents of this legislation, small business or households earning $400,000 per year or less will not see an increase in the chances that they are audited.”

Janet L. Yellen, U.S. Secretary of the Treasury [Link]

See, Secretary Yellen thinks you’re stupid. She wants you to believe anything over 400 grand is big business and that the right is feeding you with more misinformation.

What happens when small businesses suddenly see their expenses rise? Think WAY back, as far back as mid-2022 when we saw a lot of that firsthand. That’s right Timmy, they raise their prices.

So, the taxpayer gets to pay for tens of thousands of new IRS Agent salaries, all of their guns, bullets, and calculators, PLUS we get to pay for higher prices due to those new IRS Agent’s actions.

Yes, my friends, all from the Inflation Reduction Act!


You Can’t Make This 💩 Up.

I know you’re not stupid or you wouldn’t have made it beyond the title of this article.

Now the IRS, with brand new agents that have no experience get to bounce into these American businesses with their shiny new guns and rip the life from these people.

This is why we say the government steals from its citizens. Because it’s true. They take your money, by force and intimidation, at the point of a gun and can take your property and lock you up.

My Opinion

I’m not that worried for you, honestly. My buddy says I just painted a bullseye on my back so maybe I should be a little worried about myself but bloggers do what bloggers do. Can’t help it.

No, I don’t see the IRS crashing down doors, guns drawn, of average citizens because they made an error on their ten forty. The far right is trying to portray this as “Biden’s personal police force” or “One step closer to a complete government takeover.”

Don’t buy into the hype. It’s certainly an abuse of authority. It’s certainly the government trying to gain more power and control over its people. It’s certainly the government spending without regard for the consequences.

But Biden isn’t going to have you lined up in the street with your hands up holding your purses and wallets as some of the loud mouth right would have you believe.

But I do think much of this, as with all of this political stone-throwing, is just dirty politics at its best. The government grows, wastes, and abuses almost by definition. We can expect nothing less.

That doesn’t mean we should just give up. Not at all. You keep casting your feel-good ballet, the oligarchs will continue to run everything behind the scenes, dictating their fascist agenda to the elected puppets. And I’ll keep prepping and blogging. Those ARE the things that make this country a great place to blog about.

Let’s Call It A Wrap

I intended to get into the gun reform bill, The Safer Communities Act 🤮, in this article but I’m already going long and, honestly, that degree of government overreach warrants its own article.

With that, have a great week and live life free, and don’t let this political garbage ruin your day. It ain’t worth it.

See ya, Brian

The dog is asleep. I repeat, the dog is asleep.
