NEW JOHN PODESTA RUSSIAN TIES: DIDN’T DISCLOSE 75,000 STOCK SHARES FROM RUSSIAN COMPANY AFTER BECOMING OBAMA’S COUNSELOR IN 2014

Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chairman and Obama adviser, John Podesta, may have violated federal law when he failed to disclose 75,000 stock shares from a Russian-backed company in 2014. Another REAL Russian scandal fake news liberal media refused to cover is the fact Hillary Clinton sold 20% of our Uranium to Russia in exchange for $150 million to the Clinton Foundation. In the meantime, the anti-Trump media continue to insist their imaginary Trump and Russian connection really happened.

The Daily Caller reports:

Joule Unlimited Technologies — financed in part by a Russian firm —  originally awarded Podesta 100,000 shares of stock options when in 2010 he joined that board along with its Dutch-based entities: Joule Global Holdings, BV and the Stichting Joule Global Foundation.

When Podesta announced his departure from the Joule board in January 2014 to become President Obama’s special counsellor, the company officially issued him 75,000 common shares…

Seattle Gun Tax Fails to Generate Projected Revenue, Succeeds in Burdening Rights

1 Comment

H/T The NRA-ILA.

I have never seen any liberal scam to raise revenue ever work be it a gun tax, cigarette tax etc.

On March 16, 2017, the Seattle Times reported that Seattle city officials were reluctant to release data on the revenue generated by the city’s firearms and ammunition tax, citing taxpayer confidentiality concerns. Less than a week later, we now know the more likely reason that Seattle failed to disclose this tax revenue; because the money raised fell woefully short of the figure projected by supporters of the tax.

In July 2015, Seattle City Council President Tim Burgess proposed legislation he dubbed a “Gun Violence Tax,” contending that “It’s time for the gun industry to help defray” the cost of criminal violence perpetrated with guns. Burgess’s proposal was unanimously passed by the city council on August 10, 2015. The legislation imposed a $25 tax on firearm sales, a $.02 per round tax on .22 and smaller caliber ammunition, and a $.05 per round tax on ammunition greater than .22 caliber. The revenue was intended to be used to fund anti-gun research at the Harborview Medical Center.

  On August 24, 2015, NRA, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, and the Second Amendment Foundation filed suit in King County Superior Court to prevent the city from enforcing the new tax. NRA’s complaint pointed out that the tax violates the Second Amendment and is also impermissible under Washington law.

The U.S. Supreme Court has made clear that governments are not permitted to attack constitutionally-protected conduct through taxation. In the First Amendment context, the Court struck down a Minnesota use tax on ink and paper used in publishing. In that case – Minneapolis Star Tribune Co. v. Minnesota Commissioner of Revenue – the Court warned that “A power to tax differentially, as opposed to a power to tax generally, gives a government a powerful weapon against the taxpayer selected.”

Washington’s firearms preemption statute also bars Seattle’s tax. Section 9.41.290 of the Revised Code of Washington states,

The state of Washington hereby fully occupies and preempts the entire field of firearms regulation within the boundaries of the state, including the registration, licensing, possession, purchase, sale, acquisition, transfer, discharge, and transportation of firearms, or any other element relating to firearms or parts thereof, including ammunition and reloader components.

and,

Local laws and ordinances that are inconsistent with, more restrictive than, or exceed the requirements of state law shall not be enacted and are preempted and repealed, regardless of the nature of the code, charter, or home rule status of such city, town, county, or municipality.

Washington law does provide a small number of specific exemptions to the state firearm preemption statute, but these concern local zoning in relating to firearms dealers, carry in certain municipal buildings, and the discharge of firearms.

Despite the plain language of Washington’s preemption statute, in December 2015 King County Superior Court Judge Palmer Robinson upheld Seattle’s tax. NRA and our allies have appealed the court’s decision, and the case now sits with the Washington State Supreme Court.

In advocating for the tax, Burgess and other supporters of the legislation repeatedly cited figures from the City Budget Office that claimed the tax would raise between $300,000 and $500,000 a year. In an email to the Times this week, Burgess confessed, “During its first year, the firearms and ammunition tax payments received by the City were less than $200,000.” It is not clear how much less than $200,000 the city collected.

According to the Times, to come up with the outlandish $300,000-$500,000 figure, the City Budget Office “obtained the annual number of background checks for gun sales in Washington. Then they looked up what percentage of Washington’s licensed gun dealers were in Seattle and used that to guess the number of firearms sales in the city.” In addition to the fact that its analysis was too rudimentary to offer an accurate estimate of gun sales in Seattle, the budget office appears to have made no attempt to predict the impact the significant tax would have on the behavior of gun dealers and buyers.

Making this projection appear even more ridiculous is that the 2016 tax shortfall occurred in a year that witnessed record gun sales nationally and in the Evergreen State. In 2016, there were 713,996 NICS background checks conducted in Washington, whereas the 2015 total was 502,280. Washingtonians were buying plenty of guns in 2016, but as many predicted when the tax was proposed, not in Seattle.

The inaccuracy of City Budget Office’s projections was readily apparent to gun dealers at the time the tax was enacted. Shortly after Burgess proposed the tax, Seattle gun store owner Sergey Solyanik told the Times that he didn’t think the city’s projected revenue was realistic. Solyanik explained that should the tax pass, “I would have almost no margins, so I would pass the tax on to my customers and most people would simply not buy from me… They would go to any of the stores around Seattle — there are a large number — and I would have to close.” Another gun dealer told the Times, “The public won’t buy ammunition in Seattle anymore… When a $10 or $15 box of ammunition costs an extra five bucks, it won’t be worth it.”

In addition to speaking to the press, Solyanik took his concerns about the tax and the foolish revenue projection directly to the city council. On July 15, 2015, Solyanik told the council, “I was horrified when I see the numbers behind this proposal. Seattle is a city that has a vibrant engineering community. We would think that we would be making decisions such as this based on data. And the data that has been submitted by the proponents is completely fake.” Speaking to the council again on the day that it passed the tax, Solyanik warned, “the revenue numbers in this proposal are not real. The city is not going to get any money from this tax. The city instead will lose tax revenue on existing sales.” Solyanik went on to add, “The only real purpose of this legislation is to run gun stores out of the city. I know it, you know it, and the courts will know it.”

In that effort, the city succeeded. Solyanik moved his store outside the city to avoid the tax. According to the Times, the only other dedicated gun store in Seattle has also left. Any honest accounting of the revenue collected from the tax should account for the lost revenue from these stores, and the others whose business has been curtailed by Seattle’s restriction.

Seattle’s high-profile failure has put every other anti-gun locality on notice that this type of taxation scheme is ineffective for raising revenue. Seattle’s embarrassment should make it harder for other localities to hide behind the false claim that these sorts of tax regimes are intended to raise revenue, rather than burden Second Amendment rights.

Archdiocese of Mexico City: Collaborators on Trump Wall ‘Traitors to their Country’

By Thomas D. Williams, PH.D.

In a powerfully worded editorial, the Catholic archdiocese of Mexico City has condemned all companies and individuals who would work on Donald Trump’s border wall, calling them “immoral” and “traitors to their country.”

The unsigned editorial titled “Treason to the Homeland” appeared in Sunday’s edition of Desde la Fe, the weekly magazine of the Archdiocese of Mexico.

Pulling no punches, the op-ed savages the U.S. President, calling him a “fanatic” who is intent on constructing a “monument to intimidation and silence, hatred and xenophobia.”

As harsh as its denunciation of Trump may be, however, the article is directed at Mexicans who are willing to work on the wall. What is regrettable, the piece states, is that “on this side of the border, Mexicans are ready to collaborate with a fanatical project that annihilates the good relationship and harmony of two nations that share…

Symbol of Blue Lives Matter Labeled “Racist”, Deemed Unfit For Display

1 Comment

H/T Constitution.com.

Personally I find the Black Lives Matters Thugs offensive.

 

 

The brave men and women in blue have suffered yet another defeat at the hands of leftist agitators and liberal racists spurred on by the Black Lives Matter movement.

For years, radicalized hate groups such as Black Lives Matter have been hard at work demeaning our nation’s police force.  Their insistence that police officers are inherently racist and trigger happy has warped the minds of the malleable millennials, and their violent reactions to even the most routine law enforcement procedures have given common thugs the green light to create chaos in America’s streets.

Now, after the Black Lives Matter organization has already been implicated in the murder of 5 police officers in Dallas, Texas, and assaults on countless others wearing the badge, the “Blue Lives Matter” advocacy campaign is now under attack from these same bigoted forces.

“A Florida woman is being told to take down her Blue Lives Matter flag that’s been flying for several years now by her homeowners association.

“Jeff Gaddie told Action News Jacksonville that his daughter in St. Johns County has been flying the flag to honor him and many other family members who are law enforcement.

“‘She called to ask why,’ Gaddie said. ‘They told her they had received a complaint that it was considered racist, offensive and anti-Black Lives Matter,’ he said.

“The association asked the woman, who did not want to be identified for fear of backlash, to submit a request for permission to fly the flag, which has since been denied.”

Groups such as the violent Black Lives Matter “movement” have been piggybacking off of the liberal ethos that Americans have the right to not be offended – a perversion of the First Amendment if there ever was one – in order to inflict their will on the people of this great country.

The group, who openly advocates for absurdities such as reparations, has failed time and again to bear witness to their own hypocrisy.  Actions such as the one that saw the removal of this woman’s flag are no better than those actions that created and maintained segregated water fountains in our past.

 

Texas Lawmakers: No Tax Dollars Shall Be Spent Supporting Countries Sponsoring Terrorism

Leave a comment

H/T Breitbart Texas.

I hope this happens on a national level.

If you want to sponsor terror and hate America do it without our tax dollars.

Texas state lawmakers are adamant that taxpayer dollars will not be used to enrich countries that sponsor terrorism. Legislators filed bills to prohibit governmental entities in the state from doing business with Iran, Sudan, or companies that do business with a foreign terrorist organization.

The Terror State Divestiture Act, and the Terror State Contracting Divestiture Act, will strength the Lone Star States’ current Iranian and Sudanese divestiture standards, says the author of two Senate bills, Senator Van Taylor (R-Plano).

Senate Bill 253, the Terror State Divestiture Act expands upon Texas’ current divestiture of ties with Iran and Sudan with retirement funds. It prohibits business partnerships and expenses for all state and local expenditures – funds in the state treasury, public investment pools, and those invested by local governments.

Senate Bill 252, the Terror State Contracting Divestiture Act, applies to a state agency, city, county, school district, special district, and the state legislature. It prevents these entities from contracting with a business for goods or services, including public works projects, if that business is engaged in operations with the Sudanese or Iranian governments or a foreign terrorist organization designated by the U.S. State Department.

According to the U.S. Department of State, “Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs) are foreign organizations that are designated by the Secretary of State in accordance with section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), as amended. FTO designations play a critical role in our fight against terrorism and are an effective means of curtailing support for terrorist activities and pressuring groups to get out of the terrorism business.”

Senator Taylor says that while it against the law for state retirement systems to invest in companies that do business with the Sudanese or Iranian governments, there is nothing preventing state agencies and political subdivisions of this state from using taxpayer dollars to contract with these same companies.

Taylors says the change is needed in Texas’ contracting law to close “the contracting loophole.”

“I will never forget the first time I walked into Second Force Reconnaissance Company’s Headquarters, at Camp Lejeune, NC. It held a memorial to some of the 220 Marines killed by Iranian terrorists in Beirut, Lebanon in 1983. The inscription read, ‘They Came in Peace.’ Shockingly, only a few months later in Iraq my unit confronted Iranian-funded agitators, spies, and anti-American protesters,” said Taylor in a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas. “Our divestment policies in Texas have both tangible and symbolic significance. To date, over 9 million taxpayer dollars have been divested from Iran, and it also serves as a sign of Texas’ commitment to an American foreign policy rooted in unwavering support for Israel.”

Senator Taylor added, “Texas must build on our previous divestment measures and remain steadfast in our commitment to ensure not one dime of taxpayer money goes to companies profiting off terrorist regimes or organizations with the goal of harming Americans or destroying our way of life.”

In 2013, Senator Taylor who was then a representative in the Texas House authored the amendment to then-Senator Dan Patrick’s (R-Houston) legislation, Senate Bill 200, to divest state pension funds from companies doing business with Iran or Sudan. The Taylor Amendment passed the House overwhelmingly by a vote of 130-9, and SB 200 passed the Senate unanimously as amended. Since then, over 9 million taxpayer dollars have been divested from Iran.

A similar bill, House Bill 1142, has been filed in the Texas House by Representative Sarah Davis (R-Houston).

Judge Jeanine Pirro: Paul Ryan must go. Now

1 Comment

H/T Fox News.

I agree with Judge Jeanine not only does Paul Ryan need to go now Mitch McConnell’s sorry ass needs to be gone also.

Paul Ryan needs to step down as Speaker of the House.

The reason? He failed to deliver the votes on his health care bill. The one trumpeted to repeal and replace ObamaCare. The one that he had seven years to work on. The one he hid under lock and key in the basement of Congress. The one that had to be pulled to prevent the embarrassment of not having enough votes to pass.

But this bill didn’t just fail — it failed when Republicans had the House, the Senate, the White House.

And the timing? It failed within the first 70 days of President Donald Trump’s administration. A president who made replacement of ObamaCare the hallmark of his campaign. And then used valuable political capital to accomplish it.

Americans elected the one man they believed could do it. A complete outsider. Someone beholden to no one — but them.

And Speaker Ryan, you come in, with all your swagger and experience, and you sell him a bill of goods which ends up a complete and total failure. And you allow our president, in his first one hundred days, to come out of the box like that? Based on what?  Your legislative expertise? Your knowledge of the arcane ins and outs of the bill writing process? Your relationships? What? Your drinks at the Hay-Adams with your pals?

Folks, I want to be clear: this is NOT on President Trump. No one expected a businessman to completely understand the nuances, the complicated ins and outs of Washington and its legislative process. How would he know which individuals upon whom he would be able to rely? Many of them, friends and establishment colleagues of Speaker Ryan.

You, on the other hand, Speaker Ryan, know very well who the 15 hard liners, the 10 moderates, and all the other ones.

YOU, of course, know their demands. And if you didn’t, why didn’t you? Some actually shut down the government over ObamaCare and you couldn’t figure out what you needed to do to get their support?

You knew no Democrat was going to support it and that you would have to rely upon the Republicans. How could you possibly misjudge this?

And where was your whip [Louisiana Rep.] Steve Scalise in all of this? How tough a lift was this? And why start with this if you are not sure you’ve got the votes?

Now, I certainly haven’t spoken with the president about any of this. But I can only imagine that he and his aides took on health care because they believed you had his back. And you didn’t. You didn’t even test the waters. You had no consensus.

 

I hate  it when Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi get to beat their drums and talk about what a great day it is for America that President Trump failed — when even they know ObamaCare is a total disaster.

The president on the other hand is handling this with dignity and he does not seem to want to criticize you. Saying this [when questioned about it]:

“I want to thank Paul Ryan. He worked very, very hard. I will tell you that.”

Mr. President, all reports are that you wanted to handle the tax cuts first but that Ryan convinced you to go with health care.

If that’s the case, not only has he hurt you with his health care debacle but the ripples will hurt you as you try to overhaul the tax code will come back at you.

The Freedom Caucus, feeling emboldened by their win with this health care failure, will now dig their heels in on the tax cuts.

Ryan has hurt you going forward and he’s to go.

The shame of this is that, in addition to putting your faith in someone who didn’t have your back, you made the decision, as opposed to letting ObamaCare explode — as it inevitably will — you decided to take it on anyway.

In January you said this:

“Give it two years, it’s going to explode like you’ve never seen it. Nobody’s going to be able to afford it. It’s a disaster. And that’s politically what we should do. But we don’t want to do that. We want to get something done and get it done right.”

I never put my faith in you, [Speaker] Ryan. I questioned you all through the campaign when you distanced yourself from candidate Trump whenever you felt the prevailing winds blowing against Trump. To me, your loyalty was always in question.

Yet what was never in question, to me, was your intelligence, your savvy, and your comprehension of the system.

So why?  Why would you let this happen? What was your agenda?

The reason, Speaker Ryan, that you, and all your Washington colleagues, are held in such low esteem is because you have forgotten about us.

In spite of the fact that you RINOS were all working against him though, the president joined with you and relied on you. Trusting you.  Believing you had his back. You didnt.

The American people won’t forget this and neither should the president.
