Empirical evidence has provided us with answers to a problem we face today and into the foreseeable future. The lame stream media has regressed to a point that even the facts don’t matter. One thing must be addressed first off, that is the dynasty of political families who have consolidated power through the government. For instance the collusion of the FBI and the Clinton campaign which ended so abruptly that further investigation is mandatory. But for now we leave it at that because the time is fast approaching where the collaborators will see the iron bars close behind them.
Back to our initial bomb throwers thesis. Take Chris Cuomo, who like his brother and father, woven of the same cloth, are guilty of incitement. They do this through mis-information, propaganda and outright lies. How so? Their networks provide the fodder for them to attack free speech, free thought and last but certainly no least, they attack the U.S. Constitution through mass media. Their audience believes everything they say, truth or lie.
Click here as Cuomoweighs in on the Christmas presents sent to progressive democrats. Cuomo blames Trump, Trump, Trump and Trump. Cuomo doesn’t understand the truth, never did. He still, along with the libtard media, still can’t get over the fact that “lock her up” got beaten badly two years ago. Don’t forget vitriol and divisiveness is not because of Trump, but Obama is the originator of class welfare. A Muslim sympathizer condoned the killing of 400,000 plus in Syria. You hear nothing about that though. And how about the two pukes, who got what they deserved, justice. Obama inflamed the populace with his racist remarks, didn’t he?
Listen to Cuomo, form your own opinion, and no doubt the majority of people who don’t have a screw loose will agree, that these political low lifes, the low IQ types, are ANTIFA criminals in their own right. No American will believe what they say, ever, because of their bias, vitriolic invective, and pure propaganda that comes from the gutter politics they preach.
CUOMO AND HIS BROTHER ARE VERY DANGEROUS INDIVIDUALS IN THEIR OWN RIGHT.
Rubbing salt in the woundis a metaphor that typifies a situation where a protagonist doubles up by criticizing a target; been going on for years. The verbal salt assault ramps up pain to such a degree that the receiver can no longer take the scorn; they then lash out, but to no avail. In the case we are alluding to is the new tax law signed by President Trump in December 2017.
SALT is an acronym for State and Local Taxes. According to the new law, State and Local tax deduction limits are set at $10,000 combined when itemizing vs the new standard deduction of $12,000 for singles and $24,000 for marrieds.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) limited the ability of taxpayers to deduct state and local taxes (SALT) from their federal taxable income. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo called it an act of war and California Senate Leader Kevin de Leon inveighed against a “tax scam [that] disproportionately harms California taxpayers.” PLEASE DON’T CRY FOR ME ARGENTINA! SALT hurts these progressive maniacs to such a degree that they have to lash out at the President, but IT IS OK FOR THEM TO TAX THE LIVING SHIT OUT OF THEIR TAXPAYERS. A BUNCH OF HYPOCRITICAL TWO FACED CRIMINALS.
Unlike prior tax cuts or reform, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 ends the longstanding practice of the federal tax code subsidizing high state and local taxes (known as SALT in tax code jargon). Instead of mostly well-off taxpayers being able to take an unlimited deduction for the state and local taxes they pay, the new tax law limits the deduction to $10,000 per family. This operates as if all 50 states changed their tax code all at once, because, unlike typical federal tax code changes, this reform doesn’t treat all states the same.
So what are these progressive malcontents doing about it? They are seeking a work around. How, you say, does that work? In their scheme (they are always scheming) they plan on allowing their taxpaying citizens to donate to a sham charity, set up by the individual state, the amount of SALT taxes due. This the will be treated as a charitable donation for Federal Income Tax. Not so fast says Uncle Sam. You can’t do that, but a valiant try nonetheless. We give them an A for tenacity, but an F for being Jerks.
What happened to the TOUT – yes we are speaking about the liberal ideologue/communist – the Crying Chuck Schumercrowd? Those who tout the progressive agenda of we know more than you do, follow us to the gates of hell. Trump body slammed them down causing their head to spin like a top. How did he do it? With Congresses help, tax legislation was passed allowing for a maximum of $10,000 deduction for real estate and state taxes combined for those who itemize on their income tax return. You see, the picture is now coming into focus. Those liberal big-wigs live in McMansions and oh boy do they pay the piper in the form of real estate taxes on their castles.
In case you missed it, these moguls of the financial space also haul in ZILLIONS of Dollars a year. How else can they afford the the luxuries of life – the dolce vita? Don’t forget the Dr. Moonbeam Dems who love to vote the progressive street. These whoop it up Obama/Clinton mobs are now getting some of their own medicine up where the sun don’t shine. Very hard to swallow this tax stuff. And this creates a problem upstairs; by that we mean in the governor’s office.
These petulant know it all snobs, Andrew Cuomoof New York and Dannel Malloy of Connecticut including the rest of the beasty crew including none other than Governor Moonbeamin the Golden State, love to slam it down the throat of the 1% rich. Now the door seems to be hitting them hard on the way out. There is an exodus of the high earner fleeing the tax and spend liberal paragons of society. And how sweet it is.
The liberal rich are fleeing the tax and spend progressive agenda states with dispatch.
800,000 people are about to flee New York and California because of taxes, say economists
800,000 people will leave New York and California over the next three years due to the new tax bill, conservative economists Arthur Laffer and Stephen Moore said in an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal.
The tax changes limit the deduction of state and local taxes to $10,000, so many high-earning taxpayers in high-tax states will actually face a tax increase under the new tax code. Laffer and Moore say that the effective income-tax rate (what people actually pay) for high earners in California will jump from 8.5 percent to 13 percent. Wealthy Manhattanites would face a similar increase, they say. Those who make $10 million or more will see a potential tax hike of 50 percent or more, according to their analysis.
Those hikes, they say, will cause an exodus of residents to move to lower or no-income tax states.
“In years to come, millions of people, thousands of businesses and tens of billions of dollars of net income will flee high-tax blue states for low-tax red states,” they said. They say 800,000 people will move from California and New York over the next three years. Connecticut, New Jersey and Minnesota will lose a combined 500,000 people over the same period.
THE COMING SHOWDOWN. WHY WE NEED OUR AR-A15’s. Not to kill a deer AS the LUNATIC GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK SAYS, BUT TO SHOOT A GANG BANGER, A LOOTER A MEMBER OF MS-13!
Ask one who lives in a gated community if they are armed, what type of munitions do they have to protect life, liberty and happiness. What type of security detail is stationed at Gracie Mansion. We bet Cuomo’s Tonton Macoutes (a special operations unit) have automatic weapons. For What we may ask is the Governor afraid of? He is armed and we must be.
We would challenge the Governor to take a nightly tour of the deep crevices, the inner sanctums, the no-go zones and hoods of New York City, St Louis, Baltimore and Los Angeles without an armed security detail. He wouldn’t last a minute. Expect him goyellow pants, cry like a baby and get down on his kneesbegging for mercy. Not gonna happen though because the governor lack cajones!
But the set up for a breakdown of civil order is in place. Middle America, the Patriot, the 2nd Amendment advocate and those who love the country will not be intimidated by a YELLOW BELLY excrement liberal progressives who invite the illegal murderer, rapist and law breaker into our communities. Those who proffer sanctuary cities are as much a danger as the illegal. A destroyer of cities, states and country the governor is. Failure to obey the laws and protect the citizens of the New York and beyond is treason. Governors like Cuomo belong behind bars for their horrendous crimes against humanity.
The ignition switch is turned on, one push of the button and WE WILL TAKE AMERICA BACK. They say back from what? Back from the leech. Read the following blog post. When payments to those who are scamming the system are stopped expect civil war. Suburbia will not escape the humdrum implosion of the cities, but ostensibly will be the next target. The only way to survive is with automatic weapons, with AR-15 defensive type weapons.
Nut cakes like him will continue to give succor to the mentally deranged. The bureaucracy will fail time and time again because of political correctness and the lack of will to enforce the law. While Cuomo will be begging for his life we will taking out those who threaten us.
Sending money down a rat hole is a Democrat priority; we give Solyndra as the quintessential example. Seven Hundred Fifty Million Dollars ($750,000,000) up in solar flames. The Donkey party patronage system paved the way for one of the largest scams in the past twenty years, yet no one was indicted. Why? The answer is simple, those involved in the scam were, shall we say, WELL CONNECTED. Big doners to the Democrat party get access to funds that the average Joe only dreams about. Bloomberg reported in 2011 that Solyndra’s $733 million plant had whistling robots and spa showers, along with many other signs of extravagant spending – all of this was on our dime.
Continuing on the scheme to fleece America we advise any one of you to spend a day or two at your local Social Security Office. What to look for? Notice the people in line, do they look like you? The majority of which are there to run the Disability Scam. To collect Social Security Disability we advise you to check any numerous of these (click)websites out.
Depending on the severity of your medical condition, you may be eligible for permanent benefit payments if you have any of the following common impairments:
In other words, any person who breathes can collect SSDI. Scamming America has never been higher. The number of people collecting social security disability is over 10,000,000. Over 61,000,000 people are collecting social security benefits one way or another. The facts are these, those collecting social security has never been so easy.
The number of people on SSDI now exceeds the entire population of Greece. The aging of the population has nothing to do with the increase. In 1968 there were 51 workers for every person on disability. Today there are 13 workers for every person on disablity. Even the most pollyanna would agree that medical advancements since 1968 have been significant. These medical advancements would argue for less people being on disability and unable to work. Workplace safety measures have been increased exponentially since 1968, so that also argues for less disabled workers. The good old ADA law forced all workplaces to become disabled friendly. That argues for less people on disability. The country has transitioned from a manufacturing society to a service society. Workers don’t work on dangerous assembly lines anymore. Robots do the dangerous stuff. This should have dramatically reduced worker injuries and disabilities.
Everything I’ve pointed out is true. The tremendous increase in people on SSDI is nothing but a gigantic fraud, perpetuated by the Federal government and slimy lawyers. The government broadened the scope of disabilities to include stress, depression, and non-diagnosable things like aches and pains. I have stress, depression and pains too, but I get up at 5:15 every morning and go to work. The SSDI program is a joke. More than half the people on SSDI are lazy good for nothing leeches. They are sucking you and I dry while sitting around eating cheetos, watching Judge Judy on their government subsidized cable TV, and texting with other lazy fucks on their iPhones. And don’t forget, you get the added benefit of Medicare coverage after only two years of SSDI stress.
An 18-month investigation by a Senate subcommittee found that in more than 25 percent of cases reviewed, evidence confirming disabilities was “insufficient, contradictory or incomplete.” The staff reviewed 300 decisions in which individuals were awarded disability benefits by administrative law judges. A 2011 internal SSA report echoed the findings, showing a national error rate of 22 percent.
Going forward, it is essential that Congress take significant steps to rein in SSDI’s growth. To do nothing — to continue to prioritize the able bodied over the truly infirm — is far worse.
Some people in the United States have already filed their 2015 income tax returns — not because they are super-law-abiding, but because they want to get a check from Uncle Sam in the mail. Some savvy illegal aliens, since they can get substantial tax breaks, will have filed by now.
The first day that IRS accepted returns was January 19 this year — the deadline is two and a half months away, the usual April 15.
This year there is yet another tax break for illegals in the tax system. Unlike citizen and green card workers who are not participating in Obamacare or another qualifying plan, who will be paying a penalty of up to $695 per adult (with a family limit of $2,085) for not joining the system, illegals without coverage pay no penalties. None at all. These penalties were much smaller last year.
That is also true for the semi-illegals covered (for the moment) by the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program. (On the other hand, these illegals and semi-illegals cannot — legitimately — be covered by the insurance, though some must be beating that system.)
But the big attraction for filing early is not the new Obamacare tax break, which simply reduces the amount owed, it is the Old Faithful of tax breaks that illegal aliens can access: the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC). Illegals filing their income taxes can claim the ACTC if they have (or claim to have) children in the United States. This tax credit, unlike virtually all others, can result in a negative income tax payment. That means that no taxes will be collected from the individual, but he or she will get a check in the mail for all taxes withheld plus a bonus for the credit, as my colleague Jim Edwards has reported in the past.
The ACTC is well worth filing for; it can be as high as $1,000 per child claimed and proving the existence of a child is all too easy, with an ID number issued all too casually by the IRS, as we reported a couple of years ago. This is now called the TIN (tax identification number) and, in the immediate past at least, it was issued in such a sloppy way that the process was roundly criticized by the inspector general of taxation for the Department of the Treasury.
There are at least three kinds of children that an illegal can claim for the ACTC: actual citizen kids living in this country; actual children living abroad, but claimed to be living in the United States; and, at the bottom of the ladder, nonexistent children. The IRS has created a system that makes it very hard to distinguish between these three classes.
A somewhat similar tax program, the Earned Income Tax Credit, requires a Social Security number for the claimed children, and thus is a bit harder for illegals to misuse.
IRS earned income credit or EIC is another one of frauds committed by illegal aliens.
IRS Corruption Fuels Billions in Fraudulent Payments to Illegal Aliens
I am sorry to report that the IRS practice described in this recent FORBES headline is not new. It’s an old story that continues to shock most — but not all — Americans:
“IRS admits it encourages illegals to steal Social Security numbers”
Imagine my surprise when I found a pile of IRS 1040 tax returns among the tons of trash at a “lay-up site” used by illegal border jumpers near the Mexican border west of Douglas, Arizona. There are dozens of such places where the thousands of border invaders change clothes, discard trash and wait to be taken by their “coyote” to their pick-up location for moving on to Phoenix or El Paso or Houston.
The IRS 1040 forms were filled out and had been used. Hey, who says illegal aliens don’t pay taxes?
I collected the 1040 forms and we noticed all had claimed Earned Income Tax Credits and all also had claimed around nine deductions for children. The average refund was around $4,000. It occurred to me only much later that the American taxpayer may be funding the coyote’s $1,500 fees for smuggling poor Mexicans, Salvadorans — and Iraqis and Vietnamese — across our southwest border.
When I sent the 1040 forms to the Social Security Administration and the IRS, I was told that the practice described in the FORBES article was the one being followed in dealing with these returns. I tried to amend the appropriations bills for the IRS to be the practice, but I got nowhere. My Republican colleagues didn’t want to hear about it and were ticked at me for bringing it up.
Illegal aliens use “the system” to report income and also gain every possible “refund” the tax law — and IRS collusion — allows. Who can blame them when the welcome sign is in bright green neon letters?
This FORBES headline should not shock anyone. The IRS collusion with illegal alien tax fraud is not a secret. Over the past decade, there have been regular news stories exposing tax fraud by illegal aliens– and IRS indifference to the scandal.
The shocking thing is that the FORBES headline is not an exaggeration. The IRS knows illegal aliens are using stolen Social Security numbers and is glad they are doing it. But that is only the tip of the iceberg called illegal alien tax fraud.
IRS Commissioner John Koskinen made the revelation in congressional testimony this past week, but no one was really shocked. The IRS wants illegal aliens working illegally to file tax returns and pay taxes on their illegal earnings like everyone else. So, the government figures it is a smart thing to make it easy for them to do so. The government doesn’t care whether the Social Security number used is stolen or not, it’s the tax filing itself that is important to the IRS.
When asked why the agency has a policy to ignore notifications from the Social Security Administration that a number does not match the name used on the tax filing, the agency replies, literally, “That’s not our job.”
The IRS deliberately and unapologetically avoids telling you when your SSN is being used unlawfully by another person — or ten or twenty other people.
Efforts in Congress to fix that problem are criticized as “racist.”
But as I said, that IRS scandal is only the beginning of the story of tax fraud by millions of illegal aliens. Millions of illegal workers are filing tax forms not to pay their taxes but to claim and then receive refundable tax credits– that is, cash refunds– and those cash payments run into the billions annually.
It’s politically correct in Washington, DC, to say that illegal aliens are willing, even anxious, to “pay their fair share of taxes.” It’s part of the mythology of the noble “undocumented worker” seeking the American dream. Even the Republican National Committee believes it.
This week the RNC sent a fundraising letter to a few million prospective donors using the tired gimmick of a “poll” on critical issues. One question asked voters if they support legalization for illegal aliens if they meet a number of tests, one of them being “paying back taxes.” We all know illegal aliens are anxious to do that to prove they have earned the right to stay here and contribute to the economy.
The problem is they already have a way to pay back taxes if they want to do it, but millions are doing just the opposite. Millions of illegal aliens are collecting refundable tax credits– that is, cash — by filing fraudulent claims. And the IRS doesn’t care.
An April 2012 investigative report by an Indiana television station found numerous cases of tax fraud in the Child Tax Credit and Additional Child Tax Credits programs.
Four illegal alien tax filers had used the same address and claimed a total of 20 children for refundable tax credits of up to $1,000 for each child. Only one child actually lived at the address, and the other 19 lived in Mexico and had never even visited the United States.
That aspect of the fraud is in fact not really illegal: the child you claim on the tax form does not have to live in the United States. the child can be living with Aunt Rosa in Peru or Grandpa Felix in Algeria.
The IRS response to the fraudulent payments? They refused to comment or to confirm any investigation and refused to meet with reporters to answer questions.
IRS refusal to act on documented fraud by illegal aliens is legendary. For a decade the agency’s own Inspector General has complained of inaction by agency managers.
According to reports of the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA), millions of illegal aliens are filing tax forms in order to claim refundable tax credits and receive billions in tax dollars — even if they have never paid one dollar in federal income taxes.
Illegal aliens are accessing not only the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) but the Child Tax Credit (CTC) and Additional Child Tax Credit ACTC) to the tune of billions annually.
And according to testimony of the Treasury Department’s Inspector General, the IRS has refused to take steps to curtail illegal aliens cashing in on these programs.
You may be thinking that the government surely would take action if the tax fraud is costing the Treasury millions of dollars. It’s fraud on a small scale, right? Nope. It’s costing billions, not millions.
While I was in Congress back in 2007, I tried to blow the whistle on this IRS partnership with schemes costing taxpayers billions.
A brave IRS employee in one of the agency’s Western regional offices called my office and met with my staff clandestinely at a restaurant in the capital of one of our southwestern states. He offered concrete, credible information and internal reports that showed there was a huge problem– and that it was being ignored by agency management.
His regional office team had studied a random sample of Child Tax Credit claims by tax filers using “ITIN” numbers– tax ID numbers given lawfully to persons who do not qualify for Social Security numbers but are employed and need to file tax returns.
Their sample revealed a high rate of fraud which suggested widespread fraud involving hundreds of millions of dollars. But he and his regional colleagues could get no action from headquarters to investigate it further.
Can you guess who blocked any congressional action to demand the IRS investigate illegal alien abuse of these “refundable tax credit” programs? The Congressional Hispanic Caucus threatened massive protests against “discriminatory practices” if the IRS pursued the issue.
At that time, Democrats were in the majority in the House and the Senate and thus controlled the committees, so no investigation was ever conducted. But did Republicans undertake to clean up the mess when they gained the majority in the 2010 election? No.
There is no evidence the problem of tax fraud by illegal aliens is something the IRS cares about.
A December 2014 report by Watchdog.org revealed that an IRS audit documented a 24 percent error rate in claims made under the EITC — a loss of $14.2 billion in unlawful tax refunds in the year 2012.
A similar audit of the Additional Child Tax Credit program in 2012 revealed erroneous payments in the range of 25 percent to 31 percent.
But did the audits result in corrective actions? No.
Adding all of the fraud rates together from three separate refundable tax credit programs suggests total tax fraud in the realm of several billion dollars. Of course, not all of the fraud is by illegal aliens. But the lack of IRS interest in curtailing illegal alien abuse of these tax credit programs tells us the problem will only get worse in the years ahead.
Let’s add the shameful, willful taxpayer-funded philanthropy toward illegal workers to the many reasons why IRS Commissioner Koskinen should be impeached and a new management team put into the agency to conduct a thorough house cleaning.
What are the odds of that happening under President Hillary Clinton? Or President John Kasich?
PUTIN, WIKILEAKS, THE NSA AND THE DNC EMAIL FIASCO THAT GAVE TRUMP AND CLINTON ANOTHER REASON TO BE AT ODDS. In politics the operative word for a loser is to shut up and listen carefully. Many also-rans have learned this lesson well. The pundit set and political wannabees, throughout the campaign, continued to lob Molotov cocktails at Trump; where are they now?Crying like babies in their yellow pants, seeking psychiatric care or booking flights out of the country. Good riddance to them.
Bill de Blasio, the Mayor of the Big Apple, had a word or two to say about “The Donald” during the run for the White House. For instance, he said Trump was “unfit” to be President, calling him a “racist“. But suddenly the tables are turned, de Blasio’s is now eating humble pie, Hillary is eating cake and Trump drinking champagne; actually Trump doesn’t drink or smoke. You get the picture.
And BTW we forgot to mention that New York is on the receiving end of about 8,000,000,000 (eight billion) in federal dollars. In the parlance of good statesmanship, a receiver of goodwill does not usually call the giver a derogatory name, nor spit in their face. However, de Blasio, a big shot loud mouth doesn’t really know the way of the street. He has had fights with Governor Cuomo too. Suddenly he has met his match; a no win situation for him. HoHoHo.
But listen to this, CBS is distorting the hack news once again. Putting words in Trump’s mouth. We guess they never learn.
Every time you buy taxable good in New York City, you are contributing to the wages of New York State workers. Every person who pays income taxes in the State of New York is contributing to the pay of state workers. Recent evaluations of state worker compensation indicates that the average worker’s pay is approximately 40% higher than an equivalent job in the private sector. However, Governor Cuomo has given an executive order that the minimum hourly pay of state workers be raised to $15 per hour (read hear). This is on the back of the socialist Mayor of New York City, he has demanded McDonalds and friends to cough up $15 per hour for their burger flipping employees. When all is said and done, the total compensation per employee would approach $20 per hour. No experience necessary.
To counter the trend McDonalds is going with automation, others will soon follow. However, the public can do their part buy boycotting the burger joints; this will cause them financial hardship resulting in laying off their over paid $15 per hour employees. This will send the likes of Cuomo and DeBlasio a “fast food” message.
Listen to this cry baby: Flavia Cabral, 53, a grandmother from the Bronx who works part-time in a McDonald’s for $8.75 an hour, pointed out the scars where fry baskets had seared her forearms. “ We say, “stay out of the kitchen if it is too hot.”
Of note is that it is the Service Employees International Union who have pushed for higher wages for their members who, in most cases, don’t have college degrees. If the raise the minimum wage to continues, workers in every sector will demand more because of the higher threshold. Inflation will sprout wings touching our pocket books.
We have talked about HUD (U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development) before, they can best be described as a socialist organization bent on destroying middle class neighborhoods. HUD’s objective is to build housing in middle class neighborhoods thus bring inner city families closer to the suburban environment. But studies have shown that successful Blacks who have moved out of the hood into these middle class bastions of safety are the most out spoken when in comes to relocating those eligible for Section 8 housing next door. And who can blame them; they left the hood, but the hood followed them.
A taste of HUD’s political agenda follows:
June is LGBT month according to HUD secretary Castro.
This week marks the beginning of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Month, 2015 — a time to recognize the lasting contributions that these Americans have made to our nation, and to honor the progress that’s been achieved in securing equal opportunity for all.
But let’s not get into specifics just yet. HUD has an agenda, one that does not sit well with most Americans. They have seen the destructive power of this agency. Keep in mind that HUD has capitalistic supporters whose lifeline is low income housing. These entities get tax credits, state and federal funds to build housing for the poor or better said, for those who meet HUD criteria on income. It is a money tree for them, shaking the government for funds to build housing that costs on average twice as much if it not for government bidding, building compleance and hiring procedures.
The present governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo who defeated Rob Astorino in the last election gave us a taste of his neighborhood breaking tactics. (click)Cuomo’s rant on Rob Astorino, the chief executive of Westchester County. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday criticized Westchester County’s refusal to comply with a federal housing settlement, knocking Rob Astorino, the county executive and GOP gubernatorial candidate, for disregarding the federal mandate. “I used to bring these cases as HUD secretary,” said Cuomo. Yeah he sure did, suing everyone in his path.
Astorino said Westchester has submitted eight studies to HUD that show “the only barrier to housing in many Westchester communities is income. Anyone can live anywhere they can afford in this county, just as in any other county.”
So again, Cuomo has the nerve to tell a county that its housing policies discriminate. Correct us if we are wrong here; Cuomo wants to build low income housing in the middle of neighborhoods where $2 million dollar houses are the norm. Cuomo wants to import drug dealers, MS-13 type gangs, murders, felons and muggers into stable neighborhoods. Taxes would be impacted, firefighters and police would need to be hired to fight the crime that results.
Before he became Governor he was the youngest Housing and Urban Development secretary in history, made a series of decisions between 1997 and 2001 that gave birth to the country’s current crisis. He took actions that—in combination with many other factors—helped plunge Fannie and Freddie into the subprime markets without putting in place the means to monitor their increasingly risky investments. He turned the Federal Housing Administration mortgage program into a sweetheart lender with sky-high loan ceilings and no money down, and he legalized what a federal judge has branded “kickbacks” to brokers that have fueled the sale of overpriced and unsupportable loans. Three to four million families are now facing foreclosure, and Cuomo is one of the reasons why.Cuomo has to accept responsibility for the debacle.
We are (click)moving forwardnow says President Obama faster than a bullet train. New executive orders will hasten the destruction of quiet suburban neighborhoods. A report published this morning by The Hill says President Barack Obama is pressing forward with new Department of Housing and Urban Development regulations that will withhold block grants to communities if they don’t build enough “affordable housing in wealthy neighborhoods.” The executive order, known as the “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Act,” was issued by the president last year and will be used to promote racial quotas in white suburban neighborhoods. It will also force thousands of communities to house the nation’s burgeoning population of new immigrants.
YOU AIN’T SEEN NOTHING YET FOLKS. Wait for the bodegas, massage parlors, vape lounges, after hours parties, drug dens, drive by shootings, gang recruitment comes to your neighborhood. Wow, we can’t wait! Bet none of these HUD projects are located next door to any Senators. Get those AK-47’s today, tomorrow may be too late.
We won’t hear much from ex Governor Mario Cuomo anytime soon as he passed into another world yesterday. But his son, the Governor of New York, a raging liberal with a mouth full of pittiful diatribe that casts conservatives as extremists continues with the invective. As they say, “like father like son” and so it is.
Back to 1984, Ronald Reagan was our President, during Mario Cuomo’s keynote speech at the 1984 Democratic National Convention eviscerated the Gipper like none before. As always, the the Democratic way to electrify the troops is to run rampant with a diseased mouth blaming the conservatives as bigots, racists, anti-women, anti Big Government, and anti EVERYBODY and EVERYTHING; 2014 proved Cuomo holding the short end of the stick. Secondly, the Keynesian agenda has failed miserably sliding the country down a trail that resembles Greece just a half dozen years ago. Some of Cuomo’s vitriol from that speech follows. You will recognize the words because Obama has preached to the same crowd over and over again.
Ten days ago, President Reagan admitted that although some people in this country seemed to be doing well nowadays, others were unhappy, even worried, about themselves, their families, and their futures. The President said that he didn’t understand that fear. He said, “Why, this country is a shining city on a hill.” And the President is right. In many ways we are a shining city on a hill.
But the hard truth is that not everyone is sharing in this city’s splendor and glory. A shining city is perhaps all the President sees from the portico of the White House and the veranda of his ranch, where everyone seems to be doing well. But there’s another city; there’s another part to the shining the city; the part where some people can’t pay their mortgages, and most young people can’t afford one; where students can’t afford the education they need, and middle-class parents watch the dreams they hold for their children evaporate.
In this part of the city there are more poor than ever, more families in trouble, more and more people who need help but can’t find it. Even worse: There are elderly people who tremble in the basements of the houses there. And there are people who sleep in the city streets, in the gutter, where the glitter doesn’t show. There are ghettos where thousands of young people, without a job or an education, give their lives away to drug dealers every day. There is despair, Mr. President, in the faces that you don’t see, in the places that you don’t visit in your shining city.
In fact, Mr. President, this is a nation — Mr. President you ought to know that this nation is more a “Tale of Two Cities” than it is just a “Shining City on a Hill.”
Maybe, maybe, Mr. President, if you visited some more places; maybe if you went to Appalachia where some people still live in sheds; maybe if you went to Lackawanna where thousands of unemployed steel workers wonder why we subsidized foreign steel. Maybe — Maybe, Mr. President, if you stopped in at a shelter in Chicago and spoke to the homeless there; maybe, Mr. President, if you asked a woman who had been denied the help she needed to feed her children because you said you needed the money for a tax break for a millionaire or for a missile we couldn’t afford to use.
Maybe — Maybe, Mr. President. But I’m afraid not. Because the truth is ladies and gentlemen, that this is how we were warned it would be. President Reagan told us from the very beginning that he believed in a kind of social Darwinism. Survival of the fittest. “Government can’t do everything,” we were told, so it should settle for taking care of the strong and hope that economic ambition and charity will do the rest. Make the rich richer, and what falls from the table will be enough for the middle class and those who are trying desperately to work their way into the middle class.
You know, the Republicans called it “trickle-down” when Hoover tried it. Now they call it “supply side.” But it’s the same shining city for those relative few who are lucky enough to live in its good neighborhoods. But for the people who are excluded, for the people who are locked out, all they can do is stare from a distance at that city’s glimmering towers.
We speak for the minorities who have not yet entered the mainstream. We speak for ethnics who want to add their culture to the magnificent mosaic that is America. We speak — We speak for women who are indignant that this nation refuses to etch into its governmental commandments the simple rule “thou shalt not sin against equality,” a rule so simple —
So, as we enter the New Year with much promise, a new Congress down home conservative optimism, we still are aware of the flame throwing class dividing President, who will do everything in his power to double down on the Cuomo’s agenda. The 2014 election was a vote for America, most Americans are not New Yorkers, nor will they ever be.
Click here to listen to a hardened anti-Constitution prggressive foaming at the mouth progressive Governor Andrew Cuomo as he proposes to the legislature a tough New York gun law. Tune into the 2.30 markwhen he calls us EXTREMISTS. A majority of Americans would agree that a speech like that would render the speaker a place in a mental institution. America is sick of anti gun, anti Constitution, anti patriotic Americans such as Cuomo and his breed.
Recently so much hot stuff has come off the press that it is easy to forget the phenomenon of “global warming – climate change. The past week has see North America blanketed with themother of cold air masses. For some reason this has escaped the attention of the greens who most likely are relaxing on some beach in the Caribbean. We look forward to their distorted excuse for the reason of the current cold wave. On their way back from their vacay they can take the Polar Express.
Expect the usual obfuscation. Instead of landing a spacecraft on a comet, they might have been better off trying to influence the weather. In any event, the evidence against global warming becomes less and less convincing as the days and years go on. According to those who keep track of weather related things, this past week had the coldest average weather across the United States since temperatures were recorded.
And please, please go to Buffalo this weekend to see the Jets take on Buffalo in the Snow Bowl. And by the way they are paying $10 per hour for anyone interested in shoveling snow off the stadium seats. Cold cash! Governor Cuomo called people who entered the closed New York Thruway between Albany and Buffalo stupid because the highway was closed; just because they didn’t close the entrances didn’t mean the thruway was open he said.
The picture below is a Global Warmer who stuck his head in the sand only to find out that it was not a mirage, but really water. It was too late for him to extricate himself as a flash cold wave turned the water into ice. Enough said about the warmers.
