By now you’ve seen the federal government’s classy help-wanted ads seeking new recruits for the Internal Revenue Service.
The list of qualifications is quite interesting.
TRUTH LIVES on at https://sgtreport.tv/
These recruits must be willing to carry a firearm and “use deadly force, if necessary.” And not just any firearm. As you’ll see later in this article, they want to impress you with a grand display of shock and awe.
I’m not sure how often your typical IRS agent faces scenarios that require them to fire on a fellow American with deadly force, but apparently the Biden administration anticipates this being a more frequent occurrence than in the past.
Why else would they need 87,000 new IRS employees while ordering another 750,000 rounds of ammunition on top of the millions of rounds already in their possession?
Hard-working Americans have many reasons for falling behind on their taxes but drawing the attention of militarized “special agents” and preparing for a shootout with them is not typically one of them.
In fact, let me be straight-up honest right now. If I fall on hard times and can’t afford to pay my taxes, you can file a lien and whatever legal papers are necessary to take my house, but please guys, leave your AR-15s and your .40 caliber Smith and Wessons back at the office.
According to the recruitment ad, agents must “be willing and able to participate in arrests, execution of search warrants, and other dangerous assignments.”
Below is a screenshot of the ad, which was taken down after it started causing a stir among the proles, who were apparently never supposed to see it. Or, maybe we were.
In the three-month period between March 1 and June 1, 2022, the criminal division of the IRS ordered $696,000 in ammunition, the IRS told VERIFY in an email.
