VIDEO: Elizabeth Warren Delivers Lecture To Wealthy Americans, Obama Style. Here’s What She Said.

Wealth tax? Hard pass here.

Published

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren is desperately attempting to make her mark on left-wing voters across America, hitting all the appropriate talking points on the official party platform and hoping beyond hope that folks will forget about her cultural appropriation of Native American culture.

Warren is right now attempting to channel former President Barack Obama by lecturing wealthy Americans, mirroring the infamous “you didn’t build that” statement he delivered all those years ago.

Warren’s latest remarks were delivered at a Labor Day stump speech in New Hampshire where she proposed a wealth tax that would impose an annual two percent tax on households that possessed assets greater than $50 million and a three percent tax for households that have more than $1 billion in assets.

“Some of these guys say, ‘I worked hard. I had a great idea. I worked late’ — oh yeah, unlike anybody else. But ‘I worked late or inherited wealth, and so this is mine,'” Warren mocked. “And the answer is yeah, you did. You did have a great idea and you did work hard.

“But here’s the deal,” she continued, “I guarantee you built it at least in part using workers all of us help pay to educate. Yeah. You built it at least in part, getting your goods to market on roads and bridges all of us helped pay to build. Yep. You built it at least in part, protected by police and firefighters all of us help pay their salaries.

“And we are glad to do it. These are the investments we make as Americans,” Warren went on to say. “But here’s the thing: When you make it big, I mean really big, I mean the top 1/10th of 1 percent big, pitch in two cents so everybody else gets a chance to make it in this country.”

Here’s the thing folks like Warren don’t seem to realize. When you decrease a person’s wealth, regardless of whether rich or poor, you’re essentially punishing them for being successful. If that’s what happens to someone who is successful, why would anyone want to work hard and innovate knowing their success will ultimately be trampled on by the government?

Not to mention this is just socialistic wealth redistribution. Why would poor folks want to strive to be innovative and work hard to improve culture and society through improved products, services, and new businesses when they are given everything they need by the government, paid for by the wealthy?

There’s no honor in a system like that, and it’s dangerous to our liberty.

In other words, Sen. Warren, that’s a hard pass here.

Katie Hill Criticizes Paul Gosar For Epstein Tweets; Gosar Fires Back And Says ‘You Taught The Country What A ‘Throuple’ Was’

Published

on

Rep. Paul Gosar, Arizona, struck back at his former colleague Katie Hill after she ripped him for tweeting about the “suicide” of Jeffrey Epstein, a current hot topic and popular meme circulating around the Internet. Gosar’s burn was aimed at Hill’s recent controversy involving lewd photographs of her with a staffer who she had an inappropriate relationship with, noting that she taught the country what a “throuple” was. Here’s more from Fox News: Hill reprehended Gosar over a series of tweets that spelled out “Epstein didn’t kill himself,” a line that has been appearing in memes and on social media. Hill blasted him for “tweeting out real conspiracy theories.” “No[,] like this actually happened. Real members of Congress tweeting out real conspiracy theories. In an acrostic no less,” Hill tweeted. Gosar fired back, “You’re surprised by me? You single-handedly taught an entire country a new word. #throuple,” Gosar reacted. “And wth is up with that tattoo? Relax.” “Throuple,” which is a term to describe a three-person relationship, was the arrangement Hill reportedly had with her estranged husband and a female campaign staffer. Hill accused her estranged husband of leaking the nude photos as “revenge porn” amid their messy divorce. Hill’s attorneys also vehemently denied allegations made in a DailyMail story that one of the nude photos shows a “Nazi-era Iron Cross” tattoo. Gosar got a whole lot of attention on his Twitter account Wednesday after he let loose with a series of tweets he made in connection with the ongoing testimony of U.S. diplomat Bill Taylor and State Department official George Kent as the first witnesses in the impeachment hearings against President Trump. The first letter of each of the tweets spells out “Epstein didn’t kill himself.” Rather clever, wouldn’t you agree?

First Day Of Public Impeachment Hearings Turns Up The Pressure On Moderate Democrats

Published

on

Much attention is now being cast toward moderate Democrats in the House, especially in swing districts, with the first day of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump now under wraps. The day finished up without any major revelations coming to light, highlighting the weakness of the Democrats’ key witnesses in the case against the president. Many of these witnesses are relying on second-hand information, having not interacted even once with the president. Here’s more from Fox News: At one point in Wednesday’s hearing, Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., even appeared to embrace hearsay testimony, claiming that “hearsay can be much better evidence than direct” and that “countless people have been convicted on hearsay because the courts have routinely allowed and created, needed exceptions to hearsay.” It was unclear which of those limited exceptions would apply to Wednesday’s testimony — and whether Quigley’s argument would persuade critical swing-vote Democrats. The House is now comprised of 431 members, meaning Democrats need 217 yeas to impeach Trump. There are currently 233 Democrats, so Democrats can only lose 16 of their own and still impeach the president. 31 House Democrats represent more moderate districts that Trump carried in 2016. Freshman Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich. — who flipped a GOP district in 2018 that Trump won by 7 points in 2016 — told Fox News that she was tentatively weighing all the evidence. “My constituents expect me to make an objective decision,” Slotkin said as the hearings concluded, “not one based on an hour of testimony.” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1194710194166497281 There’s also a report floating around that is suggesting that if House Democrats impeach the president, Senate Republicans are going to hold a lengthy trial that will “scramble” the 2020 Democratic presidential primary by making it mandatory for several of the contenders to stay put in…
