After Mueller Probe Proves No Russia Collusion, Dems Demand 6 Years Of Trump Tax Returns

Published

on

The Democrats just never give up on getting their grubby paws on President Trump’s tax returns. It’s none of their business and they have already seen some of them but because he wasn’t nailed by the Mueller report on Russian collusion, they are going back to trying to get at them again. The Democrats did promise they would investigate Trump’s finances and that’s what they are now going for.

This last week, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal (D-MA) announced that he has formally requested that the IRS turn over at least six years worth of Donald Trump’s personal tax returns. Specifically for the years 2013 through 2018. According to his official letter to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Neal has also requested financial documents related to Trump’s trusts, holding and acquisition companies, and his Bedminster, New Jersey golf club. I sincerely hope that Trump’s legal counsel quashes that request.

From The Daily Wire:

“Neal has apparently done his research; he made the request under a little-known statute, Internal Revenue Code 6103(f), that allows the Chair of the House Committee on Ways and Means (or the chair of any finance committee in Congress), specifically, to request the personal tax records of any individual, provided that, once produced, they are kept secret and confidential.

“There’s a catch on the confidentiality, too: if the records make their way to regular members of Congress, who end up reviewing them, the seal of confidentiality is broken, and Trump’s records could then be made public, according to Fox News legal expert, Judge Andrew Napolitano.

“Even CNN describes the request as “rooted in a legal technicality.”

“Trump brushed off the request Thursday, telling reporters, “Is that all? Oh, usually it’s 10 so I guess they’re giving up.”

“He added that he does not believe the Treasury Secretary or the IRS has to provide Congress with his tax returns so long as he is under audit, as he currently claims to be.

“Now, we’re under audit, despite what people said. We’re working that out as — I’m always under audit it seems. But I’ve been under audit because the numbers are big and I guess when you have a name you’re audited. But until such time as I’m not under audit I would not be inclined to do that,” Trump added.

“Neal told CNN that he believes his request will be fulfilled, though perhaps not without a fight.

“I am certain we are within our legitimate legislative, legal and oversight rights,” Neal said in a statement emailed to news outlets, adding that his request is about “policy not politics.”

“My preparations were made on my own track and timeline, entirely independent of other activities in Congress and the administration,” Neal added. “My actions reflect an abiding reverence for our democracy and our institutions, and are in no way based on emotion of the moment or partisanship. I trust that in this spirit, the IRS will comply with federal law and furnish me with the requested documents in a timely manner.”

“Of course, such a suggestion — that Neal’s motivation has nothing to do with partisanship — seems patently false. Democrats have been promising a full investigation into Donald Trump’s finances since Trump first took office, and activist groups have only clamored more forcefully for Trump’s tax returns in the wake of the Mueller report, which dashed their hopes of a quick and easy impeachment.”

House Democrats are also filing multiple demands to see Trump’s taxes. Both Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) have said they will issue subpoenas not just to the IRS but to various banks that had dealings with Trump and his companies. This is sheer harassment and should not be allowed. It needs to be stopped once and for all. The Dems are doing this to stop Trump from getting anything done so they can have their way politically. It’s political warfare.

President Trump is being very dismissive of all this and I understand that sentiment. But he must know that the Dems are as dangerous as rabid dogs right now.

The president’s congressional allies registered immediate and fierce disapproval. The top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee, Kevin Brady (R-TX) wrote to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to decry what he called Democrats’ “abuse” of their authority. He’s right, of course.

“Weaponizing our nation’s tax code by targeting political foes sets a dangerous precedent and weakens Americans’ privacy rights, As you know, by law all Americans have a fundamental right to the privacy of the personal information found in their tax returns,” Brady said in the letter. “This particular request is an abuse of the tax-writing committees’ statutory authority, and violates the intent and safeguards of Section 6103 of the Internal Revenue Code as Congress intended.”

Brady also said that while “transparency in our government is enormously important,” the “privacy and freedom” of all taxpayers is paramount — and that Congress should pass new disclosure laws if it sees a problem. Violating the privacy rights of one taxpayer, Brady asserted, “begins the process of eroding and threatening the privacy rights of all taxpayers.”

Yes, it does… and that’s exactly what the Democrats have in mind. They have weaponized the IRS, the intel agencies and our own government against us as well as President Trump. It’s time something was done about that and I hope that Trump does not give an inch on this.

Ocasio: ‘I Was Joking About The World Ending In 12 Years’

Published

on

Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is now claiming that she was only joking when she said that because of climate change the world will end in twelve years. In fact, she says everyone with two brain cells knows she was only kidding. Except of course all the kids who became activists because of her videos on the subject and her repeated charge that it was indeed true.

The young socialist proceeded to mock the Republican Party for taking her claim about the end of the world seriously, which she suggested was a combination of “dry humor + sarcasm.” Right… it fell flat so now she is trying to pretend she never meant it. Typical. “This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and ‘fact check’ it. Like the ‘world ending in 12 years’ thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal. But the GOP is basically Dwight from The Office so who knows,” wrote AOC in a tweet published on Mother’s Day. Evidently, she believes all her acolytes are idiots for believing her.

Ocasio-Cortez first addressed the topic back in January at a Martin Luther King forum in New York City. At the time, she was not joking when she said it either. Those in attendance gave her a roaring round of applause and then she emphasized the point by calling the fight against climate change “our World War II.”

“I think the part of it that is generational is that millennials and people, in Gen Z, and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, the world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change,” stated Ocasio-Cortez. “And your biggest issue, your biggest issue is how are going to pay for it? — and like this is the war, this is our World War II.”

Not only has Ocasio-Cortez repeated her apocalyptic climate change vision over and over again… she has collaborated with The Intercept to create a video centered around the claim. “Climate change is here + we’ve got a deadline: 12 years left to cut emissions in half,” she captioned a tweet promoting the video last month.

The video was entitled: “A Message From the Future with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” and it pictured a future where AOC’s widely-panned and uber-expensive Green New Deal has inspired action to save the planet. In the video, she again says that we have a “12-year deadline.”

The Daily Wire reported at the time:

“The congresswoman then warns that we have “twelve years to change everything” before “hundreds of millions of people would be more likely to face food and water shortages, poverty, and death.”

“Twelve years to change everything,” she narrates. “How we got around, how we fed ourselves, how we made our stuff, how we lived and worked — everything. The only way to do it was to transform our economy, which we already knew was broken.”’

More from The Daily Wire:

“Moreover, as reported by The Washington Free Beacon, Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her 12-year declaration during an Instagram live-stream when a viewer mocked her over the claim.

“We have twelve years left to cut emissions by at least 50 percent if not more,” Ocasio-Cortez, visibly annoyed, told her viewers. “For everyone who wants to make a joke about that, you may laugh, but you’re grandkids will not, so understand that the internet documents everything.”

“She then went on a tangent about looking back in history books of the civil rights movement and seeing the white people holding signs against allowing black people to vote,” the Beacon noted.

“They would hold up these bigoted signs and they would hold up signs that said things like ‘What about white rights?’ and all of this stuff in the 1950s and 1960s, so just know that in the present day there are a lot of people who hide the fact that their families and that their grandparents fought against principles of equal rights in the United States, not 100 years ago, not 80 years ago, but in this generation’s lifetime,” said the elected rep.

“While a lot of people can hide that their grandparents did that in the civil rights movement, you should also know that the internet documents everything and your grandchildren will not be able to hide the fact that you fought against acknowledging and taking bold actions on climate change,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “People who are trying to mock and delay this moment, I mean—I just feel bad for you. I just pity you for your role in history right now.”‘

Ocasio-Cortez was not kidding when she made her claim. She got many young people and activists to join her in her ‘the sky is falling’ mantra… New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is among them. Virtually every 2020 Democratic contender supports her Green New Deal and her claim of global doom. So, she just called all of them morons as well.

She wasn’t joking when she made her claim but she was lying just as she is now. Perhaps Nancy Pelosi whispered in her ear that if she values her political career that she should tone it down and back off of this climate nonsense. It’s right out of the Democratic playbook.

Kamala Harris: I Will Take Gun Dealers’ Licenses Away With Executive Action If Elected

Published

on

Sen. Kamala Harris is once again vowing that she will use executive powers to enact gun control measures if Congress fails to act in the first 100 days of her presidential administration. That’s breathtakingly unconstitutional and all but tanks her chances in a presidential bid. We may have literally just dodged a Second Amendment bullet because of her arrogance.

“I’m proposing, one, that if by my 100th day in office when elected president of the United States, if the United States Congress fails to put a bill on my desk … then I’m prepared to take executive action because that’s what’s needed: action,” Harris, a California Democrat, and 2020 hopeful, said in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.

The first time Harris voiced her intentions on the issue was at a CNN town hall in late April. But she reiterated it on Sunday after yet another school shooting. This one involved a transgender shooter with an illegal immigrant felon for a father and a young hero… 18-year-old Kendrick Castillo who was killed after rushing the gunman to save his classmates.

“We are not waiting on tragedies and we are not waiting on good ideas,” Harris said, pointing to the “heroism of a child who we now mourn his loss, his parents’ only child.” I’m surprised she didn’t attack ‘thoughts and prayers’ as well here. Castillo’s parents probably hate her using their deceased son as a political pawn – his fellow students walked out of a vigil because of that same offense involving Colorado Democratic politicians.

From The New York Post:

“When asked how she liked Sen. Cory Booker’s (D-N.J.) proposal for a federal gun registry she answered, “I like the idea. But, Jake, I’m going to tell you, on the issue of the need for gun safety laws, we’re not at any loss for good ideas. People have been having good ideas for decades on this issue.”

“Booker is also vying for the White House.

“Harris said that the country was waiting for Congress to act.

“If she was forced to take executive action, Harris said she would require those who sell more than five guns a year to do background checks.

“She would also have the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives take away licenses from gun dealers that don’t follow the law.

“Harris also expressed support for government intervention in dealing with Facebook. Co-founder Chris Hughes said Thursday that the social network should be broken up.

“Asked by Tapper if she agreed with Hughes, Harris answered, “yes, I think we have to seriously take a look at that, yes.”

“I mean, when you look at the issue, they’re essentially a utility. Like, there are very few people that can actually get by and be involved in their communities or society or in whatever their profession without somehow, somewhere using Facebook,” Harris said. “It’s very difficult for people to be engaged in any level of commerce without – so, we have to recognize it for what it is. It is essentially a utility that has gone unregulated. And as far as I’m concerned, that’s got to stop.”’

Harris also tried to walk back that she wanted to do away with private health insurance. She explained that while she supported Medicare-for-all “it doesn’t get rid of all insurance.” “It was in the context of saying, let’s get rid of all the bureaucracy. Let’s get rid of all the waste,” she said concerning her previous remark.

Harris said the Medicare-for-all bill she supports “doesn’t get rid of supplemental insurance.” That bill would also give healthcare services to illegal immigrants. Tapper asked if this meant Harris supported giving healthcare to illegal immigrants. “Let me just be very clear about this. I’m opposed to any policy that would deny in our country any human being from access to public safety, public education or public health, period,” Harris answered.

And she figures taking away guns and the license to sell them is in the interest of public health evidently. The woman simply cannot open her trap without lying and trying to take away our constitutional freedoms.
