Simon & Schuster Censors Josh Hawley’s Book on Censorship.

Simon & Schuster Censors Josh Hawley’s Book on Censorship.

Patriot Daily Press reports: Simon & Schuster got in on the corporate virtue-signaling that is going on all over Twitter with this announcement that Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) will be dropped from their publishing house and his new book The Tyranny of Big Tech will not be printed. “After witnessing the disturbing, deadly insurrection that took place on Wednesday in Washington, D.C., Simon & Schuster has decided to cancel publication of Senator Josh Hawley’s forthcoming book, THE TYRANNY OF BIG TECH…after his role in what became a dangerous threat to our democracy and freedom.”

It’s cute that leftists learned the word “insurrection” on their word-of-the-day calendars and are using it so prolifically. One might want to ask what kind of insurrection doesn’t bring guns to a coup and instead brings guys in face-paint and buffalo horns but then one would be labeled as the traitorous scum one is and summarily fired. Shut up, you seditious wretch. You mob-mongering-Nazi! A pox on your house and all of your known associates or anyone who ever uttered a word of kindness toward you. (Spitting noises).

Hawley’s crime was to walk past a group of peacefully protesting people and raise a fist of solidarity with Americans who feel their election system is rigged against them. He then went on to legally contest the electors as is his right under our laws. This is a legal action that Democrats exercise in every election they lose, by the way. It’s not new. The crowd wasn’t breaking windows while Hawley was walking by. But according to Yahoo News, Hawley is personally responsible for the ensuing riot and according to his hometown paper’s reaction, he’s facing the firing squad.

“We can’t appeal to a sense of decency that doesn’t exist. But we can say that Hawley, who gave a raised fist of encouragement to the likes of that proud lout who put his feet up on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s desk, cannot continue to be our man in Washington, and so will have to be expelled.” The Senate, the Star editorialists added, “must do more than censure his treasonous behavior.”

The charge is that Hawley somehow could tell the future and knew that someone in that crowd would sully the speaker’s desk and was preemptively giving him the “atta-boy!” Who could believe this? But this is the strategy they are going with and it’s getting louder.

Biden May Owe Up To $500,000 In Back Taxes

Biden May Owe Up To 0,000 In Back Taxes

Democrat President Joe Biden, who has repeatedly demanded that the wealthy “pay their fair share” in taxes, may owe up to $500,000 in back taxes, according a lawmaker’s analysis of a new non-partisan congressional report.

The report comes as Biden is pushing his party to pass a massive $3.5 trillion bill that has been widely criticized as a leftist wish list, which comes as inflation rates have skyrocketed under Biden’s presidency. The report also comes as Biden is trying to beef up the IRS by $80 billion to crack down on what he claims are people not paying their taxes.

The New York Post reports:

A House Ways and Means Committee draft of the bill would end the accounting trick apparently exploited by Biden and boost IRS funding for audits — but the new report, drafted by the Congressional Research Service and provided to The Post, suggests Biden owes taxes under current rules, according to the congressman who requested it.

“Joe Biden wants to raise taxes by $2.1 trillion while claiming the rich need to pay their ‘fair share.’ But in 2017, multi-millionaire Joe Biden skirted his payroll taxes — the very taxes that fund Medicare and Obamacare,” Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC), said in a statement to the Post. “According to the criteria CRS provided to my office, he owes the IRS and the American people hundreds of thousands of dollars in back taxes. Every American should know about Joe Biden’s tax hypocrisy.”

Banks alleged that the report shows that Biden, who is not actually named in the report, misused “S corporations” to avoid paying Medicare tax on speaking fees and book sales while he was out of office during the Trump administration.

The Post added:

Biden and first lady Jill Biden routed more than $13 million through S corporations and counted less than $800,000 of it as salary eligible for the Medicare tax — exempting the rest from what would have been a 3.8 percent rate, the Wall Street Journal reported. The CRS report doesn’t name Biden but analyzes cases in which the IRS won a judgment against taxpayers who paid themselves suspiciously low salaries from S corporations and counted most of the revenue as “distributions” exempt from the Medicare tax. …

Tax law experts told The Post that the CRS report underscores the long-standing controversy, but that it doesn’t necessarily break new ground. They say the IRS simply doesn’t have the resources to make sure that all S corporations reasonably assess what counts as salary.

Reason Magazine’s October issued noted that Biden’s plan to beef up the IRS by $80 billion would effectively result in a world where “every one of your noncash financial transactions—a restaurant meal, a Venmo transfer to a friend, maybe some bitcoin bought on the dips—was automatically reported to a beefed-up, audit-hungry IRS.”

Hunter Biden emails boast ties to White House and China

Hunter Biden emails boast ties to White House and China

Hunter Biden’s business contacts touted his access to his father, “State, Treasury,” his relationship with then-Secretary of State John Kerry’s stepson, as well as his ties to the “highest level” in China, as they weighed whether to work with him on a potential Libya deal in 2015, newly uncovered emails show. 

The two emails — published by Insider on Thursday — date back to 2015, when Joe Biden was vice president, and reference getting Hunter’s help on a deal regarding billions in Libyan assets frozen by the Obama administration.

The emails are unrelated to Hunter’s infamous laptop.

In the first email, dated Jan. 28, 2015, Democratic donor Sam Jauhari repeatedly referred to Hunter as “#2 son” — an apparent reference to Joe Biden’s VP role at the time — and noted that Hunter had requested a $2 million retainer.  

The business contact listed a string of positives to working with Hunter, including his business relationship with Kerry’s stepson Chris Heinz and Hunter’s apparent self-proclaimed high-level access in China.

Cruz Challenges AOC And Other Democrats To Visit Catastrophe At Southern Border

Cruz mocks Ocasio-Cortez in Senate floor speech, challenges Dems to ‘go see the Biden cages’

Cruz Challenges AOC And Other Democrats To Visit Catastrophe At Southern Border

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz mocked Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her previous visit to a migrant facility, and issued a “simple challenge” to her and her colleagues to visit the “Biden cages” holding migrants amid the border crisis. 

“Mr. President, every Democrat who stood up and lamented kids in cages, in the House of Representatives, Representative Ocasio-Cortez, has a famous photo of her grasping her head by the kids in cages,” Cruz said as he imitated the photo. “Well, I’m going to give a simple challenge for Representative Ocasio-Cortez and for every Democrat in this body. Go see the Biden cages with your own eyes.”

Cruz’s comments came during a Senate floor speech on Wednesday regarding the influx of Haitian migrants at the U.S. border with Mexico, with more than 14,000 migrants seen camped under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas. Cruz called out Democrats for not visiting the border to witness the crisis, while noting they were vocal about migration facilities during the Trump administration. 

“Why does Joe Biden refuse to go to the Rio Grande Valley? Because if he goes, the TV cameras will come with him,” Cruz added later in his speech. “Why does Kamala Harris, who’s supposed to be the border czar, she’s supposed to be in charge of this, why won’t she go to the Rio Grande Valley? Because if she went, the TV cameras would come and would show the Biden cages. And the Democrats are counting on the corrupt corporate media to suddenly say nothing to see here. 15,000 Haitians under a bridge in Del Rio. Nothing to see here. Anyone want to know what Joe Biden’s favorite ice cream flavor is? That’s the news!”

Ocasio-Cortez visited a West Texas city housing migrant children in 2018 under the Trump administration, and was photographed standing near fencing, with her hands over her face, appearing visibly upset.
