This guy! HAHA!

Although it has been made clear that candidate Donald Trump and his campaign did not collude with Russia in 2016, the Mueller report has still not been made public.

Some Congressional Republicans want to make it public, others don’t.

As you’d imagine, all Congressional Democrats want to make it public.

Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) says, “Every day that goes by without the American people getting the actual report… is indicative of a cover-up.

More on Wyden and why his capital gains proposal is bonkers…

From National Review:

If an idea is being put forward these days by a Democratic candidate for president or a freshman member of Congress, it is probably a good idea not to take it too seriously. This is not to say that there are not legitimately dangerous things being proposed by the Kamala Harrises and AOC’s of this era — tuition-free college, Medicare-for-all, fossil-fuel elimination, 70 percent tax rates, racial reparations, court-packing, ending the Electoral College, legalized infanticide — but I am not so sure that an elimination of private health insurance (Harris) or the funnier implications of the Green New Deal (AOC) are intended as legitimate policy prescriptions rather than rank base-pandering. Trying to run to the left of Bernie Sanders to get attention makes people say and do some crazy things.

But Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon is the top-ranking member of the Senate’s tax committee, not a candidate for president, and not a 29-year-old bartender-turned-Instagram-star. And his recent policy proposal to tax unrealized capital gains is just as extreme, silly, impractical, dangerous, and inane as any of the aforementioned policy whiffs floating around in the leftist hemisphere.

Sounds as though Wyden really doesn’t know what he’s doing or what he’s talking about.

And yet, he has been a member of Congress for nearly 40 years. First, Wyden served as a Congressman from 1981-1996.

He has been a Senator since ’96.

How someone like Wyden keeps getting elected is the real question.

Wild, huh?

More:

The current capital-gains tax works this way: When one purchases a capital asset such as a stock or a piece of investment real estate, the purchase price becomes the “cost basis,” and when it is sold, the difference between the cost basis and the sale price becomes a “capital gain.” If the asset was held over one year, its gain is taxed at a 15 to 20 percent rate (depending on the taxpayer’s overall income). Additionally, a 3.8 percent surtax exists (the Obamacare tax) for all making over $250,000. So for simplicity’s sake, we have a capital-gains tax in our country of somewhere between 15 percent and 23.8 percent whenever an asset is sold at a profit after one year. (The rate is higher if the asset is sold within one year – basically, it’s taxed at ordinary income-tax rates.)

Seems like Wyden needs to be removed from his post on the tax committee if he’s conjuring up ideas like this.

Let’s hear your thoughts…

AG Barr Tackles Far-Left Extremism; Says Media Is Censoring What’s Going On And Americans Are Being Lied To

Published

on

Attorney General William Barr is one of those people that President Trump has surrounded himself with that is much like him in very important ways that are desperately needed in the current political climate. Barr is a man unafraid to speak the truth. He’s not easily intimidate by the leftist media and he’s always ready and willing to call them out for their nonsense, which is precisely what he’s done concerning the topic of how the media has covered radical left-wing extremism. The attorney general conducted an interview with Fox News host Mark Levin on Sunday and stated the mainstream media is lying to the public about the extent of far-left violence exploding in streets across the country. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “We have the citizen reporters, who have these videos of these events, which are quite different than what we get a lot of times from the media, which seems to be censoring the violence,” Levin said to Barr. “No?” “Absolutely. Their narrative – they are projecting a narrative,” Barr said. “When the word narrative came into currency, I knew we were in trouble, because the word narrative really suggests that there’s no objective truth. There’s no real story of what happened, it’s just everyone has their own narrative.” “And you get to then – the press can justify presenting a story that doesn’t really correspond to objective truth, but it’s our narrative. We have a narrative, you have a narrative,” Barr continued. “I’ve been appalled at — on this violence, because it’s happening right out in the streets, anyone with eyes can see what’s happening. They see the violence.” “They see these groups of agitators in their black outfits and their helmets and their shields, which incidentally have the hammer and sickle on them most of…

Massive Rioting And Looting Rocks Chicago After Police-Involved Shooting

Published

Will this nonsense ever just end? How much more violence, rioting, and looting can this country handle before it shatters and folks get super tribal? We’re all ready divided, yet it doesn’t seem this stuff is going to be quelled any time soon. There are now videos circulating online that show widespread rioting, looting, and other forms of violence erupting all throughout the city of Chicago in light of a police-involved shooting that left a young man wounded. Social media users on various platforms posted up videos of people in the city looting Walgreens, Macy’s, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, among many other stores. There was even an exchange of gunfire between looters and police at some point during the evening. No officers were harmed. Check out the details from Fox News: “Absolute chaos in downtown Chicago with more overnight looting and vandalism in the Loop,” tweeted Ryan Baker, an anchor for WBBM-TV. “Appears to be coordinated effort with minimal police presence.” https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1292753400388415489 The Chicago Police Department did not immediately respond to an email from Fox News. The unrest began Sunday afternoon, after police responded to a report of a man with a gun in the city’s Englewood neighborhood. While pursuing that individual on foot, he “turned and fired shots” at officers before being struck himself and taken to a local hospital, Deputy Chief Delonda Tally told Fox 32 Chicago. A crowd that had gathered at the scene then faced off against police and started hurling objects at officers after getting agitated over a false rumor that the suspect – who is in his late teens or early 20s – was a child, investigators add. https://twitter.com/TomAhernCPD/status/1292592711271362566 As of this writing, the condition of the individual who was shot is not known. Chicago’s Civilian Office of Police Accountability has officially launched an investigation…
