    Sinema Statement on Partisan Tax Bill
    Dec 19, 2017
    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema (AZ-09) voted against today’s tax bill. She released the following statement after the vote:

    “A broken Congress failed again to deliver for hardworking Arizonans. Arizonans want fiscally responsible tax reform that gives families a chance to get ahead. They are sick and tired of the backroom deals and partisan games that continue to put the American dream out of reach for too many.

    “This bill increases the $20 trillion debt by an additional $1.456 trillion, forces cuts to Medicare, and crowds out business lending and growth. In the long run, it raises taxes on over half of all taxpayers and doesn’t simplify the tax code for businesses. That does not create jobs or help middle-class families build better lives.

    “Rushing through a bill for short-term political gain does not serve Arizona or the American people. When President Reagan and a Democratic Congress passed tax reform in the ‘80s, it took two years and bipartisan cooperation. It was hard work, and it was worth it. Americans deserve that type of leadership.

    “I’ve repeatedly called for an open, bipartisan process because bipartisan legislation stands the test of time. I’m ready to fix the problems and mistakes that will inevitably become clear as we learn more about the harmful consequences of this rushed and partisan tax bill.”

    Good Job Dr. Kelli Ward… first time I’ve seen her address her opponent in this way —

  10. More GREAT NEWS for My Treepers upstate..
    Along with #MAGANOMICS, (I hope that’s spelled right)
    Chinese tire maker picks North Carolina site for major plant
    800 JOBS!
    A Chinese tire maker is moving more aggressively into the U.S. market with plans for a North Carolina factory that is to ultimately employ 800 people and produce six million tires a year.
    A state committee on Tuesday approved tax breaks to coax Triangle Tire to rural Edgecombe County, about 65 miles (100 kilometers) east of Raleigh. It’s to be the first U.S. plant for Weihai, China-based maker of tires for passenger vehicles, trucks, buses and heavy equipment.
    Triangle Tire could receive up to $152 million in state and local tax breaks, worker training and other incentives if it meets hiring targets.
    The Triangle factory marks at least the third Chinese tire maker to build production plants in the U.S., with other companies choosing sites in South Carolina and Georgia..
    Read that again,, the THIRD! SC/GA, Now N.C.!

      Oh, this is just too good! I’ve read several short comments by Treepers who caught the “used cars” piece of this Hebollah/Operation Cassandra story and posted, “Used cars? Like the Awans?”

      Obviously it caught Luke Rosiak’s attention, as well. Go get ’em, Luke!!!!

        Here’s an excerpt from a related article on Operation Cassandra:

        ” Meanwhile, the terrorists were sending planeloads worth of cash from Latin America drug trafficking and even the proceeds from Islamist-run used-car companies in the US back to Lebanon. Cash reserves in a Beirut account that was awash in Hezbollah drug money doubled. A regular shuttle flew from Venezuela to Iran, with illegal drugs and cash flowing one way and Hezbollah and Iranian agents (who were then supplied with fake identities by Venezuela) the other.”

        So, now that I have read Luke Rosiak’s article in The Daily Caller about the link between the Awans and Operation Cassandra I’m furious. The Awan Brothers story just gets dirtier.

        I am going to go in search of something I read about Andrew McCabe and how he had his hands all over so many of these cases that have us Deplorables going, “What??????” I’ve got to go check and see now if Andrew McCabe was involved in the Awan investigation.

        Here’s an excerpt from The Daily Caller article:

        “Sources said the FBI generated Suspicious Activity Reports hundreds of pages long based on large cash deposits and international wires.

        Members of Congress have refused to acknowledge what is well-known among the House bureaucracy, that investigators found conclusive evidence that the Awans wantonly violated House IT regulations. “There’s no question about it: If I was accused of a tenth of what these guys are accused of, they’d take me out in handcuffs that same day,” a fellow House IT aide said. But fellow IT aides with knowledge pertinent to the case said the FBI hasn’t even interviewed them.

        Politico’s money-laundering story echoed similar themes: “Right now, we have 50 FBI agents not doing anything because they know their Iran cases aren’t going anywhere,” including investigations into allegedly complicit used-car dealers, a prosecutor said.”

        And my take is that Brennan has had a connection to Obama from when or before he was seated as a Senator in 2005. That is the same year the Awans first started in the House.

    The leftists are going crazy. They have meme’s up about how can a President and Congress who were installed by HIGH TREASON be allowed to destroy the USA with this tax bill.

    I’m having to behave because of work, but I’m so tempted. I am taking note of the worst of them so I can ask them in a few months how the tax bill worked out for them and people they know.

    Las Vegas

    This is interesting. This does appear that it could be Hannity prepping for his show (or some other news personality)… I think that Joe the narrator makes too much out of the security detail – Hannity gets plenty of death threats to warrant plenty of security – and he implies that Hannity must know something we don’t which may or not be true – but the fact that they were able to park in the exact location where a victim had been located just a few hours before is kind of disturbing. No crime scene tape? No evidence that a body was left there so recently? It seems bizarre.

    I’m not sure exactly what date Hannity did that particular show…to the best of my knowledge it was either 10/02 or 10/03. It seems that every other crime scene was secured and blocked from public view. I guess it could just be LVPD incompetence…which is disturbing all on its own.

      Well, it is clearly Hannity and that was his security detail (which he always has). Obviously, Hannity is not aware of what happened in that parking lot a few hours before or he wouldn’t have parked there.

      This guy is trying to make more out of it than there is. However, I agree it is odd that it is not being treated as a crime scene, and most disturbing is that the security camera footage was NEVER requested by LVPD despite them having removed a dead person from that very spot!

      It is obvious that something is being covered up with this whole thing… but not by Hannity.

        I agree, Sandra. I don’t believe Hannity is covering anything up and the implications made by this video are way off base in that regard but the other points being made, as you pointed out, are indeed strange.

    • joeknuckles says:

      In fairness, that location was some distance from the venue and the camera was facing away from the main crime scene, the victim was dragged, carried there, then left for dead, then picked up by a Good Samaritan. The cops may not have known there was ever a dead body there and did not think to check the video. Don’t get me wrong, there is plenty to be suspicious about in Vegas, I just don’t think this video is it. I’m more curious about what the hell was causing all the swirling wind in that origainal video that aired on Tucker. I assume Hannity will be shocked to see this, as I’m sure he had no idea he was getting his makeup done on the very spot that a person died. He is a very reverent guy, so I think this will disturb him a great deal.
      Yes, he is quite wealthy and he gets a lot of death threats, so he probably does have a strong security detail.

        I saw some tweets or something a couple weeks back about how Trump was “Erasing Obama!!” (it was a reply to the Bears Ears business, I think?). That really struck home, as in a way he Is erasing Obama…got me thinking about whether he’s actually going to Un-do everything Obama did, and Then drop the hammer about him never being qualified – invalidating his presidency. Would be a glorious thing –

    Apparently there is a new Gang of Six working on a DACA amnesty deal with the White House.

    Why do we always seem to be negotiating who or how many get amnesty? Why can’t we negotiate WHEN they all get deported, whether we deport them all this month, next month or before June?
