Democrats Plan Soviet-Style Move To Get Their Hands on Trump’s Tax Returns

Published

House Democrats are getting closer to prying President Trump’s tax returns from the Treasury Department.

Although Democratic big wigs and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal (D-Mass.) haven’t announced the exact date that they will make the request for Trump’s tax returns, several lawmakers have hinted that action could come pretty soon.

On Tuesday, Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) gave his prediction that the request will come about in the “next couple of weeks.”

At the end of the day, it’s up to Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal to send Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin a letter requesting Trump’s tax returns. Neal has taken a cautious approach to this request because he believes that this could lead to a drawn-out court battle.

A provision of the federal tax code allows the chairmen of Congress’s two tax committees to request tax returns and related information from the Treasury Department. These committees are then allowed to review these documents behind closed doors. There is also the possibility of a committee vote to send a report to the full House or Senate, which could potentially publicize all of the tax information.

However, Congress has rarely taken advantage of this power. The most recent case of Congress using these powers was when Republicans investigated the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups that applied for tax-exempt status.

Getting their hands on Trump’s tax returns is one the Democrat’s top priorities in the current Congress. They believe that these tax returns hold the secrets to numerous conflicts of interests Trump allegedly has with foreign governments.

Make no mistake about it, Democrat’s efforts to obtain President Trump’s tax returns are nothing more than a witch hunt. This is just another case demonstrating why the U.S.’s burdensome income tax system should be scrapped.

Giving politicians or bureaucrats the power to use the tax system as a political weapon is as Soviet as it gets. As the government grows bigger by the year, the potential for abuse by petty authoritarians in government only increases.

To quell the threat of government abuse, we must reduce the size of government and keep it shackled. Let’s start with abolishing the IRS.

The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters

Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.

Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters. 

Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits. 

He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.

The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:

Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…

By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.

For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats. 

Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another. 

In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election. 

Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
