"True sweeping, incisive spiritual logic pours only confusion and dismay upon head and heart of all who set themselves up for pillars of the church without practising the first principles of the doctrine of Christ--men who, professing to gather their fellows together in the name of Christ, conduct the affairs of the church on the principles of hell--men so blind and dull and slow of heart, that they will never know what outer darkness means until it closes around them--men who seek gain first, safety next, and the will of God not at all--men whose presentation or Christianity is enough to drive the world to a preferable infidelity." -- George MacDonald

Our story begins on Friday June 20th, 2014, when the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service John Koskinen testified before the House Ways & Means Committee in the nearly year-long scandal in which the IRS had been targeting the political enemies of President Barack Obama for excessive audits, blocking of tax-exempt status, and other forms of harassment. Use of the IRS in such ways is illegal and was one of the articles of impeachment against President Richard Nixon.

Attention had early on focused on Lois Lerner, the IRS official in charge of the tax exempt organizations unit who had dropped the blame for the abuse on lower-level IRS employees operating out of the Cincinnati office. However evidence began to surface of over 150 meetings between IRS officials and the White House, and emails that included illegal sharing of IRS information on Obama's political enemies. During the government shut down, the White House erased the visitor logs for that time period from their website, and succeeded in getting a judge to allow the logs to be kept secret. At the same time, the IRS was illegally sharing private information on taxpayers with the FBI, seeking ways to prosecute and destroy Obama's enemies.

Darrell Issa's House Oversight and Government Reform Committee requested copies of all of Lois Lerner's emails, and was told that the IRS had the legally mandated copies of emails from before the IRS scandal and afterwards, but the critical emails between 2009 and 2011 had been lost due to a hard drive crash! Not only that, the IRS claimed, there were no backups as their tape archive system recycled all tapes after just six months, and the actual physical hard drive had been melted down and destroyed! Then it emerged that email for six other IRS employees at the heart of the scandal had also been lost!

John Koskinen's testimony before the House Ways & Means Committee basically came down to "The Dog Ate My Emails", infuriating when you consider that the IRS demands all Americans keep all financial records for up to 7 years for possible review by the IRS, while the IRS was free to dispose of embarrassing and criminal evidence at their discretion. Worse, apparently emboldened by Attorney General Eric Holser's steadfast refusal to allow the Department of Justice to open a criminal investigation into the IRS' actions (possibly to to the DOJ's own complicity in siccing the FBI on Obama's enemies), Koskinen refused to even apologize for the lost emails, barely able to keep the smirk off of his face!

Then, Friday afternoon, Peter Suderman posted an article at that proved the IRS had an ongoing contract with a private company to back up the IRS servers, including the Microsoft Exchange system used to handle the IRS emails! This article was an instant sensation and was quickly reported by the Independent Media on the internet.

Shortly afterwards the original article at was taken down, and the URL produced a 404 "file not found" error. But by then it was too late as the original article was already duplicated at my web site and other locations. The copies spreading across the net made it very clear that the report would not be silenced, and realizing that the act of trying to erase the original was propelling the story, the original post was restored to later that same day.

More online evidence began to surface of an ongoing contract between the IRS and a company called "Sonasoft", whose slogan is "Email archiving done right." The company specializes in archiving emails from Microsoft Exchange Server, confirming that the IRS mail system does not in fact simply store emails on the hard drives of the desktop computers! A solicitation at the General Service Administration's own website (and also archived HERE) shows the IRS contracting with Sonasoft in 2008, before the period of the emails sought by Ryan and Issa. Note that the products specified relate to backing up Microsoft Exchange, the IRS' email server! showed the IRS as being Sonasoft's top government customer in 2010, right in the middle of the period Koskinen says the dog ate Lois Lerner's (and six other IRS officials') emails! And Sonasoft's list of customers (also archived HERE) shows the IRS is still a customer to this very day!

Mr. Koskinen, your pants are on fire!

At this point, the story gets really strange! In addition to preserving and disseminating this information on the independent media, I decided that Darrell Issa's office needed to be informed, so I printed out the hard copy of the original article from , filled out a FAx cover sheet, and tried to FAX the information both to Darrell Issa's district office and his Washington DC office. My FAX is built into an HP OfficeJet 8600 Pro, which I purchased just three months ago and which so far has not given me any problems. The first attempt ended when I got an error message saying that the FAX in Issa's DC office cannot handle color. So I switched modes at my end and resent, but as soon as the cover page went through, the FAX failed, with an error message that communications had been interrupted! Oh well, Hawaiian Telco doesn't have the best reputation anyway, so I tried again ... three more times. All failed. Then I tried FAXing to Issa's district office. Three times. Those failed!

I was unable to leave a message using the contact form at Issa's website because my zip code is not in his district, so I went over to the reporting web form at the Committee on Oversight & Government Reform website. I filled out a report with URLs but it too refused to complete the transmission, failing with "unknown error."

Needless to say in this age of ubiquitous NSA back-dooring of all electronics, I was a bit suspicious so many independent systems seemed to be failing at the same time, so I told my wife I was going to use the FAX at the local Office Depot, then went instead to a local postal box shop, and succeeded in FAXing the information to Darrell Issa's offices on the very first try! Here are the transmission slips.

So, here we are. The IRS is lying when it says Lois Lerner (and six other IRS officials at the heart of the IRS targeting of Obama's political opponents)'s emails are lost forever and there are no backups. The IRS has an ongoing contract with Sonasoft to back up the IRS Exchange servers that covers the time period of the missing emails.

Now Darrell Issa's office knows the IRS is lying.

And now so do you.

And if the IRS is lying about missing emails and computer drives, then we may presume they have lied about other things, such as the ratification of the 16th Amendment, which is their sole justification for the systematic looting of the American people for the last 100 years!

"I think if you were to go back and and try to find and review the ratification of the 16th amendment, which was the internal revenue, the income tax, I think if you went back and examined that carefully, you would find that a sufficient number of states never ratified that amendment." - U.S. District Court Judge James C. Fox, Sullivan Vs. United States, 2003.
