Deep State Comes for Matt Taibbi

“There is no such thing as the Deep State!” bark moonbats. Tell that to journalist Matt Taibbi.

Taibbi is among the last of the principled liberals, whose numbers also include Glenn Greenwald, Bari Weiss, and Naomi Wolf. Their kind has been driven to the brink of extinction by the Jacobins comprising the Democratic Party, for whom the only principle is power at any price:

Taibbi has provoked the ire of Democrats and other journalists for his role in researching Twitter records and then releasing internal communications from the social-media giant that expose its censorship and its contacts with government officials. This effort has already inspired government bullying, with Chair Lina Khan’s Federal Trade Commission targeting new Twitter owner Elon Musk and demanding the company “identify all journalists” granted access to the Twitter files.

None too soon, House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan is conducting an investigation into Democrat weaponization of the federal bureaucracy.

Taibbi has told Mr. Jordan’s committee that an IRS agent showed up at his personal residence in New Jersey on March 9. That happens to be the same day Mr. Taibbi testified before the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government about what he learned about Twitter.

Taibbi learned that his 2018 and 2021 tax returns had been rejected.

Timing is never a coincidence in politics. The timing of this rare personal IRS visit was ham-fisted to ensure no one missed the point. The term for this is “intimidation.”

The fear of many Americans is that, flush with its new $80 billion in funding from Congress, the IRS will unleash its fearsome power against political opponents.

Why do you think Biden felt the need for 87,000 new IRS employees? Why do you think recruiters have been emphasizing the use of deadly force?

Through the magic of inflation, Democrats can steal money directly out of every pocket by printing more of it. They don’t need the IRS to raise funds. They need it to punish perceived threats to their rule. In our soft (for now) tyranny, the IRS plays the same role as the Gestapo.

George Orwell described authoritarian statism as “a boot stamping on a human face.” Who would want to live under such a system? Democrats would, believing that it is their boot, not their face.

A constitutional conservative — or a Christian — would understand that it is everyone’s face under the boot. That’s why even if the Deep State were not intrinsically left-wing, no true conservative would use it to punish political opponents, as Obama pioneered and his morally decrepit understudy Biden is carrying forward.
