Presidential Harassment: NY Senate Passes Bill Solely to Give Trump’s Taxes to Congress

When will it END!?

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.

“New York’s budget for the Special Olympics decreased from $200,000 in 2018 to $150,000 for this year,” The Daily Caller reported. “Meanwhile, every one of the state’s 213 lawmakers will ultimately receive a raise that is almost the same amount cut from the games for disabled athletes.”

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.

Billionaire David Koch Dies; How Leftists Respond Is Absolutely Appalling

This is horrible.

Published

on

Billionaire libertarian David Koch has passed away at the age of 79, and as you might expect, the liberal media had a lot to say about the man, none of it really any good. While we’re used to seeing the left trash folks on the right, especially when they die, the venom spit at Koch by liberals is appalling in every imaginable way. These people truly have no shame. via The Daily Wire: “David Koch was a villain who devoted his wealth to further enriching himself and his fellow plutocrats, while spinning us all toward environmental doom,” wrote Slate’s Jordan Weissmann. “I don’t believe in an afterlife, but if there is one, I hope his soul suffers for eternity.” “David Koch is dead. Forget the fawning obituaries: the man spent his life funding campaigns to dismantle unions, drive down wages, slash benefits and destroy the planet. He was a monument to the grotesque greed of the billionaire class — and why we need to defeat them,” wrote Tribune Magazine’s Ronan Burtenshaw. “I’m sure David Koch loved his grandkids or whatever, but the reality is that he and his greedy generation in Big Business and politics set the world on fire from Alaska to the Amazon, and now they won’t be around to watch the flames consume the rest of us,” tweeted Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Will Bunch. “David Koch wanted to abolish public schools, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and rent control,” said CNN commentator Keith Boykin. “He financed groups that denied the research on climate change. He funded the Tea Party. And he used dark money to support right-wing causes and Republican candidates for office. “Seeing lots of headlines about David Koch’s death referring to ‘billionaire’, ‘industrialist’ or ‘libertarian’ Koch,” wrote Mehdi Hasan, a columnist for The Intercept and Al Jazeera…

It Ain’t Over Yet: Special Prosecutor Appointed In Investigation Of Jussie Smollett

Let’s hope we get the truth soon.

Published

Just when you thought the Jussie Smollett investigation/case had completely fizzled out and nobody cared anymore, a judge from Chicago appointed a special prosecutor Friday morning to lead the investigation into how the case was handled. That’s right, y’all. It ain’t over until it’s over. Here’s The Daily Wire with details: Cook County Judge Michael Toomin appointed former U.S. Attorney Dan Webb to the position to investigate the way the case was handled — specifically, why the 16 criminal charges against Smollett were dropped and to potentially reinstate the charges or even add additional charges against Smollett. “Webb gained prominence for his lead role during the Operation Greylord investigations into judicial corruption in Cook County,” Fox 32 reported. “He served as special counsel in the Iran-Contra affair and was previously appointed by Judge Toomin in the death of David Koschman.” Webb told reporters on Friday: “I don’t know where this case is going. The facts will take me where they take me.” Toomin ruled that a special prosecutor was needed in the case because “Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx had no authority to hand [the case] off to her top deputy after announcing she recused herself,” CBS News Chicago reported. Foxx had been in contact with relatives of Smollett’s and was apparently approached by former first lady Michelle Obama’s chief of staff on behalf of the Smollett family. Obviously, that is a big no-no. Perhaps with this investigation we’ll all gain a little more insight into what actually happened and learn once and for all whether or not this whole attack was concocted as some sort of career boosting scheme Smollett or if it was for real. The evidence is certainly stacked against Smollett at this point in the case, but who knows what direction it could all take?
