New Jersey conservative Lonegan heats congressional race over taxes

Published

on

A New Jersey conservative congressional candidate Friday blasted his opponent Rep. Joshua S. Gottheimer (D.-N.J.) for standing by and not supporting reductions of Garden State property taxes.

“Governor-Elect Phil Murphy held a press conference today with Congressman Josh Gottheimer and Democrat luminaries like state legislator Tim Eustace to announce he wasn’t going to do a thing about New Jersey’s highest-in-the-nation property taxes,” said Steven M. Lonegan, a Republican hopeful for New Jersey’s 5th congressional district seat.

Gottheimer and the incoming Democratic governor Philip D. Murphy said they support the plan to relabel local taxes as charitable donations, in response to the new cap on the deductibility of state and local taxes in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, signed by President Donald J. Trump before the end of 2017.

“Not only does the recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs legislation cut taxes for at least 81 percent of New Jersey residents, that’s according to the figures used by liberal think-tanks, it has already sent fresh adrenaline into the bloodstream of the American economy,” said Lonegan.

Lonegan also said that New Jersey has the highest property taxes and the worst business climate in America, and that Murphy and Gottheimer have several alternatives to improve the tax and business climate in the state.

“Murphy could remove the $10,000 state income tax cap on property tax deductions this month, if he chose to,” he said.

He said that Murphy could make charitable contributions fully deductible if he chose to, and Murphy could address New Jersey’s inequitable school funding formula and its misuse of the state income tax for social engineering — the core-reasons why New Jersey has the highest property taxes in the nation.

“Instead, Phil Murphy has trotted out an ill-conceived, ad-hoc plan, cooked up by liberal public relations shill Josh Gottheimer, the same guy who provided the spin for the Wall Street firms that wrecked our economy,” he said.

Lonegan said that when you drill down through all the fluff of the bill, the Murphy-Gottheimer plan is to get people to donate more of their hard-earned money to the government in order to qualify for a tax break.

“Their answer is the same as it always is: Give more money to government in the hope that you will get something back for it.”

COWARD: Sen. James Lankford Grovels to Black Constituents for Opposing Electoral Fraud

Lankford is an ethnomasochist.

Since last week’s siege on the U.S. Capitol, there has been a tremendous amount of groveling from Republican cowards desperate to save face and avoid media scrutiny, but Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) has taken it to a new low.

Lankford issued a letter apologizing to his black constituents for opposing electoral fraud. He is sorry because the areas that committed the most fraud just so happened to be diverse inner-city communities. Multiculturalism means that fraud is ignored, and it is our national strength. This is the credo of the New America.

The Oklahoma senator wrote that his efforts “caused a firestorm of suspicion among many of my friends, particularly in Black communities around the state. I was completely blindsided, but I also found a blind spot.”

“What I did not realize was all of the national conversation about states like Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, was seen as casting doubt on the validity of votes coming out of predominantly Black communities like Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Detroit,” he wrote.

“After decades of fighting for voting rights, many Black friends in Oklahoma saw this as a direct attack on their right to vote, for their vote to matter, and even a belief that their votes made an election in our country illegitimate,” he added.

Lankford’s pathetic obsequious letter apologizing for fighting the vote steal shows why the Republican Party is dying, and Republican politicians are despised by their own rank-and-file party members. There is little difference between a GOP elected official and a social justice activist these days.

“I can assure you, my intent to give a voice to Oklahomans who had questions was never also an intent to diminish the voice of any Black American. I should have recognized how what I said and what I did could be interpreted by many of you,” he wrote. “I deeply regret my blindness to that perception, and for that I am sorry.”

Big League Politics has reported on how the Capitol riot forced RINOs to show their true colors and publicly express the disdain they have always held for President Trump:

Mitch McConnell is reportedly “pleased” about the possibility of Trump’s second impeachment, viewing it as an opportunity to purge Trump from the Republican Party and whatever else Conservative Inc. deems “toxic.”

In a New York Times report published Monday afternoon, Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman write that the outgoing Senate Majority Leader believes Trump committed “impeachable offenses.” McConnell also welcomes impeachment in order to justify dumping Trump and shedding his influence over the GOP.

“Mr. McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, has indicated that he wants to see the specific article of impeachment that the House is set to approve on Wednesday, which is expected to draw support from as many as a dozen Republicans, potentially including Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the party’s No. 3 in the House,” the report reads. “But he has made clear in private discussions that he believes now is the moment to move on the weakened lame duck, whom he blames for causing Republicans to lose the Senate.”

The Republican Party can either become the Trump party moving forward or go extinct. With cowards like Lankford among the ranks, they may actually choose extinction because they’re that weak.
