If this isn’t presidential harassment, what is?

Lawmakers in New York have their heads on straight.

Wait. That doesn’t sound right.

When President Trump is re-elected to a second term in November 2020, Democrats will still do everything possible to see him impeached.

That’s their endgame – to get 45 out of office, no matter what.

Dems wouldn’t exactly be thrilled with President Mike Pence if Trump gets the boot, so maybe there’s a chance they haven’t thought this one all the way through.

Now, the New York state senate has passed a bill solely so they can hand Trump’s taxes over to liberals in Congress.

If this isn’t presidential harassment, then what is?

From Auburn Pub:

New York’s Democrat-controlled Senate approved a bill easily Wednesday that would allow three congressional committees to get access to President Donald Trump’s state tax returns, giving Democrats a potential end-run around the administration’s refusal to disclose the president’s federal returns.

The bill, which now goes to the Democrat-led state Assembly, doesn’t target Trump by name, but would authorize state tax officials to release returns filed by seven different types of state and federal officeholders if requested by the leaders of the House Ways and Means Committee, the Senate Finance Committee or the Joint Committee on Taxation.

The law would apply to returns filed by the U.S. president and vice president, U.S. senators, or the state’s governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general or comptroller.

This is the state that sent Chuck Schumer, Andrew Cuomo, Bill de Blasio, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Kirsten Gillibrand and numerous other far-left radicals to elected office.

Therefore, it kind of makes sense that the Empire State would cut funding for the Special Olympics while giving raises to its representatives.

It’s not right, of course.

It just makes sense.

From Daily Wire:

Democrat-controlled New York is cutting funds to the Special Olympics and giving a raise to lawmakers a week after Democrats in Washington, D.C., expressed outrage after the Trump administration proposed cutting funds to the Special Olympics.

[…]

The budget, which was decided on Sunday, increases New York state lawmakers’ salaries from $79,500 to $110,000 and raises Governor Andrew Cuomo’s salary by $70,000, increasing it to $250,000.

Ain’t that something?

The exact amount cut from the Games will be given to 213 lawmakers. Funny how that worked out!

Cuomo and his ilk are everything wrong with America, at the moment. They’ll whine about income disparity, then chop up $50,000 and split it between themselves.

So hypocritical.

As a way to spite President Trump, Governor Cuomo, brother of CNN’s Chris Cuomo, granted pardons to nearly two dozen “undocumented immigrants” to prevent their deportations.

NBC President Says Ronan Farrow’s New Book ‘Motivated Not By Pursuit Of Truth, But An Axe To Grind’

Published

on

NBC News President Noah Oppenheim is not exactly what you’d call a fan of Ronan Farrow’s new book, “Catch and Kill,” calling it an “effort to defame” the network, one which is “clearly motivated not by a pursuit of truth, but an axe to grind.” Those comments were part of an email that was sent out by Oppenheim to all of the employees of the NBC News network on Monday morning. Check out the details from Fox News: The lengthy memo obtained by Fox News rejects Farrow’s reporting that suggests NBC wasn’t truthful regarding knowledge of alleged sexual misconduct by former “Today” co-host Matt Lauer, and that the network refused to expose Harvey Weinstein as a sexual predator because he leveraged information regarding Lauer. “Now that we’ve read Farrow’s book, it’s clear – his smear rests on the allegation that NBC’s management knew about and took steps to hide Matt Lauer’s misconduct before his firing in November of 2017. Without that, he has no basis on which to rest his second conspiracy theory — that his Harvey Weinstein reporting was squashed to protect Lauer,” Oppenheim wrote to staffers. Oppenheim and NBC News chairman Andy Lack have been accused of a “massive breach of journalistic integrity” by Farrow’s former NBC News producer Rich McHugh. Farrow has long claimed that NBC News stopped his reporting in an attempt to essentially cover for Weinstein. The situation has been a public relations nightmare for NBC and Oppenheim’s memo to staffers is the latest attempt to discredit “Catch and Kill” before its Tuesday release. The highly anticipated book details Farrow’s side of the story and the Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter has already caused NBC executives to release statements and hold staffer sit-downs prior to its official release on Tuesday. Oppenheim went on to write in his…

Christopher Columbus Statue Vandalized On Columbus Day: ‘Stop Celebrating Genocide’

Published

on

Residents of the city of Providence woke up this morning to find that a statue of famous explorer Christopher Columbus had been vandalized by individuals who aren’t exactly fans of the historical figure. The statue was covered in red paint and featured a sign that read, “Stop celebrating genocide.” The word “genocide” was scrawled on the back of the statue in orange paint. Check out the details from the Washington Examiner: The vandalism marked Columbus Day, a federal holiday commemorating the explorer’s arrival in the Americas in 1492. Columbus Day has grown contentious in recent decades after activists began pushing to change the day to Indigenous Peoples Day. The Indigenous Peoples Day movement sprung up around the 1992 quincentenary celebration of Columbus’s first voyage to the New World when scholarship of the Italian explorer was growing. The movement gained traction around the idea that Columbus sparked centuries of mass killings against Native Americans. Columbus’ voyage to the New World, at that time unknown to Europe, marked the beginning of centuries of mass immigration from Europe to the Americas. The explorer completed four voyages from Europe to the New World and earned the title “Admiral of the Ocean Sea” before his death in 1506. Columbus Day, and Christopher Columbus himself have become controversial in an era where political correctness, infecting the halls of higher education, have convinced young people that Columbus is a villain rather than the hero he’s been celebrated as being for hundreds of years.
