Elizabeth Warren Endorses “Gay Reparations”

Warren supports paying a generous tax refund to gay couples.

Published

Elizabeth Warren supports extending a form of reparations to yet another demographic viewed as supposed victims by much of the Democratic Party.

The Massachusetts Democrat and Presidential candidate has proposed paying back tax refunds to gay couples who filed taxes as single individuals before the government recognized gay marriages. Before the 2015 Obergfell v. Hodges judicial activist Supreme Court ruling, ‘married’ individuals in same-sex partnerships filed taxes as single people.

Warren claims that the government owes more than $50 million to gay couples who weren’t recognized as married, even though tax regulations had always recognized them as single. She’s proposed a “Refund Equality Act” that would allow gay couples to claim reverse back taxes from the IRS to make up for it.

The Massachusetts Senator had brought up legislation that would guarantee payments to gay couples in 2017 that wasn’t advanced. As President she would have greater latitude to pursue the idea.

Warren’s also endorsed reparations for descendants of slaves in the United States, an idea that seems to be catching on with force throughout the entire Democratic party.

Warren seems to be gaining an amount of traction in the crowded Democratic primary, siphoning support from democratic socialist Senator Bernie Sanders. She’s been advertised as a Democrat with an ability to appeal to both to the left-wing and centrist neoliberal elements of the party that increasingly find themselves at odds over policy priorities.

In between reparations for descendants of slaves, reparations for gay couples, and the incredibly expensive “Green New Deal” that Warren has supported, it would seem that there will be little to no wealth remaining for the broader American people under her administration.

President Donald Trump Will Move the 2020 Republican Convention Out of North Carolina

The state had interfered in the convention.

Published

President Donald Trump confirmed that he will move the 2020 Republican Convention away from Charlotte, North Carolina in a series of tweets Tuesday night. The state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, had refused to allow the Republican Party to conduct the event at full capacity, citing supposedly necessary coronavirus social distancing restrictions.

The event was slated to be held in late August, well after the apex of the national coronavirus epidemic. Cooper still refused to allow the Republican Party to proceed with its plans to hold a full-sized major party political convention.

The loss of the Republican convention is set to cost North Carolina millions of dollars in revenue for the state’s economy. Major party conventions are regularly sought by governors and mayors, but it appears that Cooper’s desire to restrict the GOP convention overrode his desire for the benefits of the event.

The President had earlier been threatening to move the convention if North Carolina failed to give the Republican Party the green light to proceed in organizing for its convention as planned.

Sources indicate that GOP officials are already scouting out potential alternative locations for the party’s convention. Early reports suggest that either Arizona or Florida could be selected as possible replacement locations for the event, with both states set to be competitive electoral battlegrounds in the fall presidential election.

Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko called for the RNC to move the convention to her Glendale-area district, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suggested that the state would be willing to welcome the President and Republicans across the country for the crucial political event.
