BOOM: Hard Truth About Trump’s Taxes, The IRS And Obama

Robert Gehl writes that Harry Reid really is disgusting.

Remember when he lied on the floor of the Senate about Mitt Romney’s taxes?

Again, he lied on the floor of the Senate.

Yeah, not only is he not sorry about that, but he thinks it’s one of the greatest things he’s ever done. Here’s what he told The Washington Post:

People bring that up, it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done. Why? Because I knew what he had done was not be transparent and forthright about his taxes and to this day he hasn’t released his tax returns. … Did I want to do that? No. I had the information, I tried to get somebody else to do it. I tried to get somebody in the Obama ‘reelect,’ I tried to get one of the senators, I tried to get one of the outside groups, but nobody would do it. So I did it. And with that, like everything, I think in life, here’s something I learned from my father, if you’re going to do something, don’t do it half-assed, don’t play around. With the Mitt Romney stuff, I didn’t play around…

Again, as the Post notes: Reid is LYING. He’s WRONG. Romney released plenty of information proving he paid his taxes. Reid knows this. There is no line that Reid wouldn’t cross. Don’t believe me? Ask him.

Is there a line he wouldn’t cross when it comes to political warfare?

“I don’t know what that line would be,” [Reid] said.

And folks, he’s about to do it again.

Reid Tweeted Wednesday morning that Trump should “prove” he’s not “mooching off the American taxpayer,” whatever that means.


Tuesday morning, he took to the Senate floor to slander the GOP Presidential candidate.

“He was born with an inheritance but lost his daddy’s wealth,” the Nevada Democrat said. “That is why Donald Trump won’t release his tax returns… Trump is faking his net worth because he doesn’t want us to know that he’s not a good businessman, that he’s not as rich as he would have us believe.”

“He doesn’t crack the list of major real estate players in New York City, let alone the country,” Reid went on. “In lieu of real business sense, Trump resorts to scams like Trump University… Trump University is under investigation in the New York attorney general’s office. He’s the defendant in other class-action lawsuits. Why? Because he cheated people.”

Reid continued, calling Trump a “flim-flammer” (again, whatever that means) and accusing him of using his charity to run other scams, The Washington Examiner reports.

“In 2009, Trump asked the Charles Evans Foundation for a donation to his charity, to the Trump Foundation,” Reid said. “Donald Trump took that money and gave it to the Palm Beach Police Foundation … when the Palm Beach Police Foundation wanted to use Trump’s South Florida Resort to honor him for this gift that he gave —remember the gift was from somebody else, but he claimed credit for it — Trump charged them for the event.”

Will the American people fall for more lies from Harry Reid? We’ll see.

Senate Hands Obama The First Veto Override Of His Presidency


BY Rachel Stoltzfoos

The Senate voted to override President Barack Obama’s veto of a bill to help 9/11 victims’ families Wednesday, in a stinging rebuke opposed only by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.

The 97-1 vote marks the first Senate veto override of Obama’s presidency, and comes on the heels of the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. It’s a victory for congressional Republicans who tried unsuccessfully to challenge Obama on 10 other vetoes issued while they held the majority in both houses.

The bill will revise immunity laws sheltering Saudis from American lawsuits, making it possible at last for the families of 9/11 victims to get justice in U.S. courts. Both the House and Senate passed the bill unanimously earlier this year, and the House is expected to finalize the veto override in an impending vote.

Obama vetoed the bill last week, saying he’s concerned about threats of economic retaliation from Saudi Arabia and the possibility other countries could change their own immunity laws in a way that would hurt American interests.

The Saudi foreign minister personally visited Washington last month and told lawmakers Saudi Arabia would be forced to sell up to $750 billion in treasury securities and other assets if the law passes, because of the potential for U.S. courts to freeze the assets on behalf of 9/11 families. And Secretary of State John Kerry has warned the bill would expose the U.S. to lawsuits abroad that would “take away our sovereign immunity and create a terrible precedent.”

House Speaker Paul Ryan and other supporters of the bill have voiced similar concerns, but say the need for the victims’ families to get justice outweighs the risks. “I worry about legal matters,” Ryan told reporters ahead of the veto override vote. “I worry about trial lawyers trying to get rich off of this. And I do worry about precedence. At the same time, these victims need to have their day in court.”

Economists have pointed out the unlikelihood of Saudi Arabia following through on the threat to dump U.S. assets, because its own currency would suffer from the resulting economic turmoil since it is tied to the dollar, and because it would be very hard to pull off on such a large scale.

Government shutdown nears after Senate fails to pass continuing resolution

The federal government may soon be underwater, with the Senate divided over, well, water. The lack of funding for Flint’s lead-contamination crisis kept a temporary spending bill from being passed, and now a government shutdown is mere days away.

On Friday at the stroke of midnight, the US government will be officially unfunded and move into shutdown mode, unless the Senate and House of Representatives can recover from what took place Tuesday.

In a 45-55 vote, a continuing resolution bill to fund the federal government through December 9 failed to gain a bare majority in the Senate. It falls far short of the 60 votes necessary to overcome a filibuster.

The bill also included over $1 billion for Zika virus research, including vaccine funding. While that came as a result of negotiations and attempts at compromise from both sides of the aisle, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) lost the support of many conservatives. Democrats predictably voted against the bill, long demanding aid for Flint, Michigan, where for two years residents have struggled with a lead-contaminated drinking water system.

The Senate approved $220 million for Flint earlier this month, but it was not included in the continuing resolution.

Republicans have promised to fund help for Flint in a water resources bill that would come in November after the general election, or even as far ahead as December. Currently, that bill does not include text concerning Flint though.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California) isn’t having any of it, saying, “‘Trust me we will consider Flint later’ – that’s like nothing to me,”according to ABC News.

Democrats insist Flint funding belongs in the continuing resolution, pointing to the fact that Louisiana and other southern states affected by recent flooding have $500 million set aside for them. The response from Senator McConnell has been that he may take the natural disaster relief out of the continuing resolution and attach it to the water resources bill.

“It’s almost as if a few Democratic leaders decided long ago that bringing our country to the brink would make for good election-year politics,” Senator McConnell said on the Senate floor Tuesday.

A House version of the water sources bill is being debated Tuesday, but it will not include Flint funding until later, Republicans say. Monday night, Representative Dan Kildee (D-Michigan), whose district covers Flint, was blocked from putting his funding measure up for a vote.

The Obama administration supports Flint funding, but has not been specific about what legislation it should be included in.

“Congress should quickly pass targeted funding to support Flint, Michigan, whether in the Water Resources Development Act or another vehicle,” the White House said Monday, according to the Washington Post.

A previous point of contention in the continuing resolution was a spending cut of $400 million. That, ABC News reports, is “no longer controversial” since other language in the bill to exclude Planned Parenthood from Zika virus funding in Puerto Rico and deregulate the Clean Water Act’s pesticide rules were tossed out.

The continuing resolution would also increase the next year’s Department of Veterans Affairs budget by 4 percent.

Friday also marks the last day the full Congress will be in session until November 13.


House Republicans Divided Over Spending Bill Strategy


House Republicans huddling in the basement of the Capitol Friday morning weren’t strategizing to defeat Democrats. They were trying to quell dissension inside their ranks over the length of a stopgap spending measure.

And they’re running out of time. Congress must decide how to fund the federal government before its spending authority expires on Oct. 1. That task has tied the GOP conference in knots since the beginning of the year.

Members of the House Freedom Caucus want to lock in current spending levels for six months with a long-term continuing resolution.

That strategy prevents passage of any spending deal during the lame-duck session, the period after the election but before the next Congress convenes. Conservatives fear the lame duck because it provides an opportunity for unaccountable lawmakers to legislate.

Republican Study Committee Chairman Bill Flores of Texas joined with Freedom Caucus Chairman Jim Jordan, sources told The Daily Signal, to make the push for a long-term continuing resolution during the closed-door meeting.

Others, including members of the House Appropriations Committee, want a three-month continuing resolution that would fund the government until December and then require lawmakers to revisit the issue before Christmas.

They argued that a shorter continuing resolution, sources told The Daily Signal, would give lawmakers more flexibility and an opportunity to pursue other nonspending policies.

Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va., told The Daily Signal that Freedom Caucus members found that argument shortsighted. “There’s going to be maximum pressure in December when Obama’s leaving office,” Brat said. “He will use every carrot and stick available.”

Though House Speaker Paul Ryan didn’t tip his hand in favor of either a three- or six-month continuing resolution, he tried to soothe Freedom Caucus fears about the lame duck.

Conservatives have been on guard since President Barack Obama warned Congress that he plans to push the Trans-Pacific Partnership during the lame duck. But Ryan told the conference, according to multiple sources, that “it’s too late” for the administration to force a vote on the controversial trade legislation.

During the meeting, Ryan also repeated his distaste for omnibus bills, a massive lump spending package that he described last year as a “crap sandwich.” The speaker floated instead the idea of “minibuses”—small bite-sized bundles of appropriations bills.

That incremental approach isn’t likely to sway many members of the Freedom Caucus though, Brat said, because it’s “built on the assumption that the Senate will vote yes for anything other than an omnibus.”

Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has indicated he won’t settle for anything less than a year-end omnibus package. Earlier in the week, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., set the stage for the conflict when he announced negotiations with the White House and Senate Democrats over a short-term continuing resolution.

Most of the members who spoke at the Friday meeting, according to multiple sources, supported a short-term continuing resolution. But it’s unclear if that rhetoric swayed many conservatives. When lawmakers left town for the weekend, House Republicans were without a unified strategy on the issue.

Hillary Clinton’s VP Called Out For Saying Sanctuary Cities Don’t Exist

Video Transcript:

Shockingly, CNN’s Chris Cuomo called out Hillary Clinton’s VP Tim Kaine for claiming sanctuary cities are a “phantom.”

KAINE: When Donald Trump kind of goes after these phantom sanctuary cities and talks about how bad they are, basically what he’s going after is police chiefs. And I trust police chiefs in terms of knowing what should be done to keep their communities safer and police departments and mayors a lot more than I trust Donald Trump.

CUOMO: But why do you say phantom? You know that there are places that refuse to cooperate with ICE [Immigrations and Customs Enforcement] and they have their assembly of different reasons for why they do it, but sanctuary cities are real. They exist. They’re not phantom. And a lot of people believe that you have those people being rewarded for not working hand in hand with ICE.

Kaine’s comments come on the heel of Donald Trump speaking of “Angel Moms” during his immigration speech.

TRUMP: I’m going to ask all of the Angel Moms to come join me on the stage right now. These are amazing women. These are amazing people.

The Angel Moms weren’t well received by some “journalists.”

Screen Shot 2016-09-03 at 2.59.57 PMKaine’s denial isn’t surprising given how hard T fought to stop a bill that would defund sanctuary cities.

TED CRUZ: I would note, it is sad that the Democratic leader chooses to stand with violent criminal illegal aliens instead of the American citizens. But even sadder is that he impugns legal immigrants. And for the Democratic leader to cynically suggest that somehow immigrants should be lumped into the same bucket with murderers and rapists demonstrates the cynicism of the modern Democratic party. The Democratic leader suggested that locking up aggravated felons is somehow disrespectful to immigrants. With all respect, as the son of an immigrant, I believe that immigrants that come here legally who aren’t criminals should be treated markedly different from murderers and rapists and yet the Democratic Party chooses to stand with the murderers and rapists and violent criminals.

The FBI has responded to recent concerns about U.S. voting systems being targeted for cyberattacks as Election Day approaches, saying the agency takes the threat “very, very seriously” and is working to “equip the rest of our government with options.”

The establishment is already trying to spin the narrative that any damaging revelations about Hillary Clinton that come in the form of an “October surprise,” including information about her ill health, will be the work of Russian disinformation agents working on behalf of Vladimir Putin.

Fun Fact

Trump 2016…From UK.
Path in AZ

Yup, all in a nice neat bow. If Clinton “wins”, no way anything was hacked, but if Trump “wins” (never gonna happen) then “the election was hacked by the Russians!”. Just covering their ass I think.

this explains why the news have been reporting the the russians are hacking our voting machines. Now , our wonderful government has to step in and control it. Wow, i wonder who will win?

Obama was reelected under many layers of election fraud, he is a complex fraud
Tyler Hoeve

yea and we are just going to sit back and watch our country go down the drain.
Larry Nester

Trump needs to organize exit polling.
Just in time

The Russian government yeah right! I would take Putin over the democratic party any day! The federal government should not be allowed anywhere near a computer!
