Here it comes! We Warned You

Just when you thought they couldn’t go any lower……

If you have worked hard and own your home or even if you are still paying a mortgage, one Democratic Senator wants you to help pay the rent for others.

This is just one aspect of the socialist policy of redistribution or sharing of wealth. The redistribution of wealth is the socialist way of stealing from hard working people and those who are wealthy but not part of the elite and then giving PART of it to the lower class, while keeping the majority for the government.

In many socialist societies, there are not three classes of people. Instead of having a lower, middle and upper class, socialist societies usually have an elite class and then the working class, which in reality are slaves of the elite who control the government.

Socialists tend to win over the people by promising them many free things in life or like this senator, having others help pay for your rent. Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are traveling the country, promising voters that if Democrats gain control of Congress and eventually the White House, that they will provide free Medicare for all, free college tuition for all and mandatory minimum wage of $15 per hour.

What voters fail to understand is that nothing is free and the only way to pay for free Medicare and college tuition for all is to triple federal taxes – a common ploy used by socialists all over the world. They dupe the working class to fall for their promises and then the working class finds out too late what they bought into.

Another thing many American voters fail to understand is that the Democratic Party is really nothing more than a socialist party and one of their newer socialist champions is promoting another socialist policy.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is proposing that most Americans help pay the high rent of others. She says that people who pay 30% or more of their income on rent should receive help on those payments from those of us who own homes. Last week, Harris tweeted:

“Nationally, over 21M Americans spend more than 30% of their paychecks on rent. That’s absurd.”

“I introduced the #RentReliefAct to help ease the burden. This equals more money in people’s pockets at the end of the year.”

Her Rent Relief Act states that for anyone earning less than $100,000 a year who pays at least 30% of their income on rent (including utilities), would receive a tax credit at the end of the year. There is a caveat to the act that states that those people living in areas that are more expensive can make up to $125,000 a year and still receive the tax credit at the end of the year.

It’s estimated that up to 80% of American tax payers will end up paying more taxes to help pay the renters’ tax credit. I didn’t see anything in the act about homeowners who pay 30% or more of their income on their mortgages getting any help or exempting them from having to pay to help renters.

Harris is from the San Francisco area, which is a very expensive place to live, so naturally, she wants to help those in her own area, but it’s at the expense of the rest of America.

Harris has a net worth of least $2 million, so I wonder how much of her wealth she would be willing to give to help pay the rent of others?

New Travel Restrictions Arrive Months After Biden Bashed Trump for Same Thing

It’s like they’ve forgotten all about what they said when they were trying to insult Trump.

Oh the hypocrisy of the liberal left; does it know no bounds?

While President Joe Biden hasn’t been quite a contradictory as some of the other high-level hypocrites in his party, it appears that this is only because he really hasn’t done anything as Commander in Chief.  The border crisis remains a horrid, humanitarian stain on our nation.  Biden-flation continues to threaten the all-important consumer spending season surrounding Christmas.  Russia continues to act with impunity the world over.

It’s hard to be a hypocrite when all you do is sit idly by, right?

But now, a worrisome new strain of COVID-19 has threatened to take the world by storm, and Biden’s work to curb the spread here in the US appears to be eerily similar to actions that he once lambasted Donald Trump for taking.

President Joe Biden has imposed travel restrictions into the United States due to coronavirus fears despite previously slamming former President Trump as xenophobic for doing the same thing in 2020.

“We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus,” Biden tweeted as a presidential candidate last year the day after Trump imposed travel restrictions from several countries including China into the United States. “We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency.”

And he even doubled down on this sentiment:

Biden later attempted to walk back the xenophobic comment and claimed during a debate that he was making a broad point about xenophobia and not directly referring to the travel ban.

“A wall will not stop the coronavirus,” Biden tweeted in March of 2020. “Banning all travel from Europe — or any other part of the world — will not stop it. This disease could impact every nation and any person on the planet — and we need a plan to combat it.”

One has to wonder, if Joe Biden was that oblivious about the needs of the nation back when he was insulting Donald Trump’s leadership, how is he possibly going to right the nation’s wrongs while in power?

California City Votes to Become ‘Constitutional Republic’, Will Not Adhere to COVID Rules

WHOA!

Published

on

There are plenty of ways in which companies and municipalities are working to push back against the government’s highly criticized COVID-19 mandates, and one town in California has just taken perhaps the largest step toward freedom that we’ve seen yet.

In a move that was born out of a need to keep the state government from becoming an authoritarian brute, the city of Oroville, California has declared itself a sovereign “constitutional republic”.

The city council in Oroville, located at the base of the Sierra Nevada foothills about 90 miles from the capital of Sacramento, adopted a resolution this week stating it would oppose state and federal orders it deems to be government overreach.

Oroville leaders said the designation was a way of affirming the city’s values and pushing back against state rules it doesn’t agree with, although a legal expert said the designation was merely a gesture and did not grant the city any new authority.

The move had its naysayers, of course.

But the city’s declaration does not shield it from following federal and state laws, said Lisa Pruitt, a rural law expert at the University of California, Davis, who said it was not clear what the designation meant.

“A municipality cannot unilaterally declare itself not subject to the laws of the state of California,” Pruitt said. “Whatever they mean by constitutional republic you can’t say hocus pocus and make it happen.”

Despite the pushback, the measure passed in a vote of 6-1, and there is little doubt that legal challenges will be coming in the not-so-distant future.
