Liberal-run states are moving forward with their electoral interference plans to throw President Donald Trump off the ballot for the 2020 presidential election, as the California state Senate passed legislation late last week that would do just that.
Senate Bill 27 (SB 27) would force any presidential hopeful to release the previous five years of their federal income tax returns to the public. The bill was passed by the California Senate with a 27-10 vote on May 2.
With the Democrats’ Russian collusion conspiracy theory now completely debunked, this is the new scheme liberals are working as they attempt to sabotage Trump’s presidency.
“We believe that President Trump, if he truly doesn’t have anything to hide, should step up and release his tax returns,” said state Sen. Mike McGuire (D-Healdsburg), a co-author of the bill.
The small number of Republicans elected to the California Senate objected to SB 27.
“I get that playing the resistance card may be good politics for the majority party, but I would submit that it’s bad policy for Californians,” Sen. Brian Jones (R-Santee) said.
McGuire mentioned that bipartisan globalist attorneys who served in the federal swamp as the chief ethics lawyers for former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama are firmly behind his measure.
Similar legislation was vetoed in 2017 after approval by the California legislature by former Gov. Jerry Brown, who refused to release his own tax returns.
Brown released this statement as his rationale following the veto, questioning the constitutionality of the measure with additional concerns that it could create perilous consequences:
Although tax returns are by law confidential, many presidential candidates have voluntarily released them. This bill is a response to President Trump’s refusal to release his returns during the last election. While I recognize the political attractiveness — even the merits — of getting President Trump’s tax returns, I worry about the political perils of individual states seeking to regulate presidential elections in this manner. First, it may not be constitutional. Second, it sets a “slippery slope” precedent. Today we require tax returns, but what would be next? Five years of health records? A certified birth certificate? High school report cards? And will these requirements vary depending on which political party is in power? A qualified candidate’s ability to appear on the ballot is fundamental to our democratic system. For that reason, I hesitate to start down a road that well might lead to an ever escalating set of differing state requirements for presidential candidates.
The new progressive Gov. Gavin Newsom, who was the former Mayor of San Fransisco, has been non-committal on whether or not he will veto the legislation if it is ultimately passed.
“It would be evaluated on its own merits,” Newsom’s spokesman Brian Ferguson said.
McGuire claims that his plan to boot Trump from the ballot would somehow protect democracy, a familiar talking point for Democrats to use as they collude to undermine the lawfully-elected President.
“We can all debate on the floor about the constitutionality of this bill,” McGuire said. “But we also have to look at what makes our democracy strong. The foundation of any successful government is transparency.”
Similar legislation has been proposed in 19 other states, with initiatives in Washington and New Jersey gaining momentum.
Ilhan Omar Says She Believes Biden Committed Sexual Assault, But Will Vote For Him Anyway
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has stated publicly that she believes Tara Reade, a former staffer for presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden who has alleged he sexually assaulted her, but will vote for Biden despite the fact that she thinks he is a predator.
“Believing survivors is consistent with my values. Yes, I endorsed against Biden and I didn’t pick him as our nominee. With that said, in this interview I did on May 6th, we talked about that and quotes aren’t always in context. I will vote for him and help him defeat Trump,” Omar wrote in a tweet attempting to express solidarity for Reade while shilling for Biden.
“We can’t fend off perceived attacks with attacks on others. This is the most important election cycle of our lifetimes and we aren’t going to have a chance if we don’t spend our energy in mobilizing and building enthusiasm against Trump. That’s the goal we should all be united on,” Omar wrote in a subsequent Twitter post.
She also talked about her stance in favor of voting for a man she believes is a sexual predator during an interview with The Sunday Times.
“There’s a lot of unsavory stuff. It is troubling, I do believe Tara Reade, I believe it’s important for us to give space for women to come forward and share their stories. It takes years and years for sexual assault survivors to come forward. Justice can be delayed but it should never be denied,” Omar said.
“If considerations [over the candidate] were something I had influence over, just candidly here, we’d probably have a different candidate,” she added – making it clear that Biden is not a candidate she finds particularly desirable.
Fellow “Squad” member Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) expressed a similar opinion that she would vote for a man she believes committed sexual assault because of her hatred for Trump.
“I reject the false choice that my party and our nominee can’t address the allegations at hand and defeat the occupant of the White House,” Pressley wrote.
Reade has come forward in recent weeks to accuse Biden of victimizing her in 1993 when he was a Senator and she worked under him:
Tara Reade, a former staffer for Joe Biden while he was serving in the Senate, filed a criminal complaint in Washington D.C. against her former boss on Saturday alleging he sexually assaulted her in 1993.
Reade attests that Biden “assaulted her in a Senate corridor, shoving his hand under her skirt and penetrating her with his fingers.” Business Insider has reported that the “statute of limitations for the alleged assault has passed,” but this troublesome news is not expected to help Biden’s presidential chances.
Reade spoke her truth to writer Katie Halper when she appeared on her podcast last month. Reade claims that she has been trying to get justice for years but her story has mostly fallen on deaf ears due to Biden being protected.
“We were alone, and it was the strangest thing,” Reade said to Halper. “There was no, like, exchange really, he just had me up against the wall. His hands were on me and underneath my clothes. And then, he went, he went down my skirt and then up inside it, and he penetrated me with his fingers…and um…He was kissing me at the same time and he was saying something to me.”
“He got finished doing what he was doing and I, how I was pulled back and he said, ‘Come on man, I heard you liked me.’ And that phrase stayed with me because I kept thinking what I might have said,” she continued. “And I can’t remember exactly if he said ‘I thought’ or if ‘I heard.’ It’s like he implied that I had done this.”
Reade’s allegations are yet to be proven by hard evidence, but this situation has certainly exposed the incredible hypocrisy of Democrats when it comes to the #MeToo movement and sexual assault claims.
