Crooked Judge Just Set Free Big Dem Leader – NO Jail Time For HEINOUS Crimes!

You embarrassed our state, city and community.

Published

on

The leader of a southern city got caught in a major scandal and the crooked judge just let them off the hook with a slap on the wrist. Another Democrat, another crime, and another paltry excuse for a punishment. While everyone else is held fully accountable for their actions, this is one big time Democrat who just escaped with a laughable consequence after she ripped off the government and taxpayers for nearly $33,000 which she used to spend money on a dirty affair she was having. This is Megan Barry, the Mayor of Nashville, TN, who was caught in a raunchy government funded affair with the head of her security team.

Mayor Barry had pleaded guilty to a felony theft that included spending at least $10,000 of government money on things that are probably not usually approved by the government. She tried to ask if she could simply resign and face no prosecution, but they couldn’t let her off that bad after what she did. She was basically forced into a plea bargain where she only has to pay back about a third of the money she stole and sit on probation for three years. Most criminals would consider that a victory. If you can steal $33,000 and only have to pay back $11,000, then many would commit that crime in a heartbeat. How many people would break the law if they could get $22,000 and the only punishment was three years on probation? Many people believe she should have to repay the full amount that she allegedly stole.

Barry’s crime stems from a controversial love affair that she allegedly had with Sergeant Bob Forrest who was then leading the security team on her detail. It was a detail paid for by the government. The love affair also involved undressed photos of a woman on his phone and deleted text messages between Barry and Forrest. All of this going on while they’re allegedly spending the taxpayer money so they can proverbially reenact scenes from a 50 Shades movie. It surely makes people happy to pay their taxes when they see where it’s being spent. People Nashville must be upset with what happened to their hard spent tax money.

Henry Rodgers of the Daily Caller provided more information: “Nashville Mayor Megan Barry pleaded guilty Tuesday to felony theft for spending more than $10,000 worth of government money, but will serve no time in jail.

Barry had reportedly been working on negotiations with Nashville District Attorney Glenn Funk to face no prosecution if she were to resign from office. Instead of jail, Barry will serve three years of probation and agreed to repay the city $11,000 in reimbursement fees, although it was reported she spent nearly $33,000 of the government’s money.

The news comes as Tennessee Bureau of Investigation received information that Barry could have broken the law, prompting her to announce her resignation at a press conference Tuesday morning.

Barry, who admitted she had an expensive affair with her head of security detail using taxpayer dollars, was reportedly in possession of nude photos of a woman taken on the phone of former Metro Police Sgt. Rob Forrest, with whom she had an affair. The photos were allegedly taken when the mayor and Forrest were on a trip together. Barry also allegedly deleted text messages between her and Forrest”

Mayor Barry is expected to resign. However, that’s likely not good enough for the people of Nashville who expect their taxes to be spent responsibly by the people they vote into office. The people of Nashville have been ripped off by a big-time Democrat and they’re only getting repaid one-third of what was stolen from them. To make matters worse, it’s just another Democrat ripping off the hardworking people of America while appearing as if they don’t care about poverty, schools, or other various elements that affect individual cities. What kind of impression does it leave civilians with if the Mayor is caught in a cheating scandal that involves stealing money? That must make people have a really bad thought process about voting for Democrats in the future.

Bruce Barry, the husband of Mayor Barry, may be suffering as well. He learns that his Mayor wife has been allegedly slobbing around with security while being accused of stealing money from the taxpayers, then pleading guilty to a felony. He supported her, which means he may be as broken as any other weak liberal who allows themselves to be victims. Maybe he should have filed for divorce, but instead, he allowed his spine to be broken. That’s what it seems like. We don’t know for sure how he feels, but perhaps someone could ask him. He is probably not very happy either. Or perhaps he’s building his case, but judging by his Tweets, it seems as though he will support his wife who made horrible mistakes against her city and family.

The cheating Mayor posted this on Twitter:

She failed to address, in this particular Tweet, her residents from which she basically stole money from. She did not apologize in this Tweet for the actions that she was allegedly caught in, which were scandalous to a level that only Anthony Weiner could appreciate.  Some people were not very supportive of her farewell from being mayor message as they Tweeted back with some not so nice remarks. Let’s just say the people who followed Megan Barry’s case have not been very happy with what happened.

Pro-Life Man Uses Tax Time to Protest Government-Funded Abortions. And Just Won!

He’s an American and devout Christian

Published

on

The Internal Revenue Service is one of the most hated entities in America. No American enjoys paying taxes especially since many of those taxes go to pay for and fund institutions many find morally repugnant and vile – institutions like Planned Parenthood for example.

There have been discussions for decades about defunding Planned Parenthood but insofar as any real action to do so, there has not been much, if anything, has actually been done. Many people justify the payment of our income taxes by due to the necessity of infrastructures like roads, bridges, and hospitals. There are also services like the fire department or the public library to consider as well. However, there are also other darker, more morally reprehensible things such as the wholesale murder of the unborn bought and paid for via Title X tax funds that support entities like Planned Parenthood as the largest abortion provider in the country and also as a purveyor of human fetal remains.

Michael Bowman is an American and a devout Christian and he is taking a stand. Tired of empty promises and no action Bowman cited his Christian faith as a legal defense against the government in a felony tax evasion case and actually won the first round in court!

According to the Daily Mail

“Michael Bowman told U.S. District Judge Michael W. Mosman on Thursday that he is not a tax protester and considers himself a true patriot, but refuses to give a dime of his money if its allocated to fund government subsidized abortions.

Mosman noted in his ruling that prosecutors failed to prove Bowman tried to conceal or mislead the government by keeping a low bank account balance so tax collectors couldn’t garnish his account to pay taxes, according to The Oregonian. 

‘Not everything that makes collection efforts more difficult qualifies as evasion,”  the judge added Wednesday.

Bowman said that he has refused to pay federal income taxes since 1999, arguing that the government must make accommodations for his strongly held religious beliefs.

‘I’m not a tax protester. I love my country. I have a duty to my country. I have a duty to my conscience,” the 53-year-old contract engineer from Columbus City.

US federal prosecutors say that Bowman has failed to submit a timely or accurate tax return since 1997.

In retaliation for his perceived crimes, the IRS levied Bowman’s bank account in January of 2012 as well as garnishing his wages in an effort to pay what the government states he owes. Bowman states he then began to make the necessary adjustments in how he conducted his financial transactions.  He chose to cash his checks and receive the cash from an entity other than his bank as well as keeping a low bank statement from January 2010 to January 2014 in an effort to circumvent the IRS and their collection efforts.

 

Assistant U.S Attorneys Donna Brecker Maddux and Rachel K. Sowray wrote in their original criminal complaint against Bowman – “Defendant’s altered bank behavior removed his income from the reach of taxing authorities and allowed him to avoid payment of assessed taxes.”

The indictment against Bowman states he owes $356,857 to the federal government in back taxes along with significant penalties accumulated from the years of 2000, 2001, 2008 and 2009, along with his failures to pay his income tax to the IRS from 2012 to 2014.

Except Judge Mossman did not see things in quite the same way as the prosecution, noting that they failed to prove Bowman in any way attempted to conceal or mislead the government by keeping a low bank balance. Bowman’s attorney argued before the court that it was not a crime to deposit a check and to subsequently withdraw that cash from a bank account especially given that all checks were disclosed to the IRS through his employer.

Defense attorney Matthew Schindler states – “Like a player collapsing as they lose Twister, the government has reached too far forward and stretched way too far back. Cashing a check at your own bank, made out to you, representing income contemporaneously disclosed by employers through 1099 and W-2 forms to the IRS is not ‘handling one’s affairs to avoid making records.”

Mossman agreed with the defense and wrote in his rendering of the legal decision – “Just cashing checks is not evasion.”  However, Mossman ruled that the case would be dismissed without prejudice which means the government can, in turn, reopen the case against Bowman and refile the charges against him in court if they should choose to do so. The prosecution has stated that the government will need to deliberate on whether they will choose to prosecute the case a second time and then will assess if they plan to move forward. Bowman still currently faces four separate counts of willful failure to file tax returns which would be a misdemeanor for each count.

US Boxer Wears ‘America First’ Border Wall Shorts To Fight Mexican Opponent

He made quite the political statement

Published

on

A Patriotic American pro-boxer made quite the political statement for President Donald Trump and his signature campaign promise to Build The Wall on the border between the U.S. and Mexico in an effort to stem the tide of the illegal alien invasion which has been going on for the past 30 years.

With thunderous applause, Rod Salka stepped into the ring with Francisco Vargas during Golden Boy’s ESPN event in Indio, California. Salka, who is an American, was sporting brick-patterned trunks in red, white and blue, with his waistband reading, “America 1st.”

The left of course cheered as Vargas, a Mexican by “heritage” and a Pennsylvanian by birth, also known as “El Bandido” beat Salka in the sixth round. Salka’s trainers stopped the fight at the beginning of the seventh round.

Deadspin reported on the fight:

“Vargas dominated the fight, sending Salka to his knees with an uppercut in the fifth round, and then landing a series of punches in the sixth round that opened a cut around Salka’s left eye. Salka never made it out of his corner for the seventh round, as his trainers stopped the fight.

Vargas stated on Salka’s trunks via ESPN Deportes – “Once we were already in the ring, the wall was an extra [motivation] so I gave it everything. Whatever it is I represent Mexico and I feel that wall is against all my countrymen.”

His countrymen? But wasn’t he born in Pensylvania?

Many on the left insanely believe this fight was some sort of commentary on illegal immigration and are stating that Salka’s loss is some sort of referendum in support of sanctuary policies. They were also quick to remind Salka of his attempt to enter the realm of politics in 2016, running as the Republican candidate for District 38 of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives before losing to Democratic incumbent William Kortz II. The district has been notably represented by a Democrat since at least 1969, and the crime and poverty levels all reflect that fact.

Vargas demonstrated exactly the reason why Patriotic Americans take issue with the majority of illegal immigrants and even some legal immigrants. If you were born in Pennsylvania how on earth could you ever call Mexicans “your countrymen?” Of course, you can be of Mexican heritage, but at what time exactly  do you start to consider Americans your “Countrymen?”

But in other news, the awesome update we have about the actual border wall is that since both political parties are against it, the Republicans because of America Chamber of Commerce money and the Democrats because of the need to have more low information voters ready to believe their lies. The President fooled everyone during the last omnibus bill and secured the money to build the wall through military funding.

This, of course, was a huge moment for the president, seeing that the border wall was something he campaigned on passionately during his campaign. And even better is the fact he actually was able to sneak in that funding to be able to keep that promise even though both parties were against it is priceless and typical Trump.

American Military News reports

“President Trump’s statement on Tuesday came after he has made increased comments about immigration and border security in recent days, as a caravan of Central American migrants was heading north through Mexico to reach the U.S.

“Until we can have a wall and proper security, we’re going to be guarding our border with the military,” Trump said on Tuesday.

“That’s a big step,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “We really haven’t done that before, certainly not very much before.”

Currently, U.S. Border Patrol is in charge of patrolling and maintaining the border.

Trump on Tuesday also addressed a caravan of immigrants that was attempting to travel to the U.S. from Honduras.

“I told Mexico very strongly that you’re going to have to do something about the caravans that are coming,” Trump said, adding that the caravan was now “breaking up very rapidly.”

“Mexico has very strong immigration laws. We should have those laws,” the President also said. “We have immigration laws that are laughed at by everybody. We need the wall, we need the protection, and we need to change our immigration laws at the border and elsewhere.”

“The caravan makes me very sad that this could happen to the United States, where you have thousands of people that just decide to walk into our country and we don’t have any laws that could protect it,” he said.

“If it reaches our border, our laws are so weak and so pathetic… it’s like we have no border,” Trump said.

Gutiérrez said that even though both Mexico and the U.S. have a desire for border security, the two countries disagree on how to make the borders secure. He also reiterated that Mexico will not be paying for the border wall.

“A relation like the one between Mexico and the United States needs to have spaces in order to agree to disagree,” he said. “The issue of the wall is certainly one of them, and as my government has clearly expressed already, Mexico by no means would be paying for a wall.”

President Trump Just Donated His Entire 4th Quarter Paycheck To Help Rebuild America!

He’s doing what he said he’d do

Published

on

And once again President Trump is doing exactly what he said he would do during the 2016 campaign.

The very next day after rolling out a major infrastructure plan the White House promptly announced that the President’s fourth-quarter earnings salary of $100k will be going to rebuilding what Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called ‘our crumbling infrastructure.”

Elaine Chao, who is the Transportation Secretary, and also Mitch McConnell’s wife, was on hand to accept President Trump’s generous donation in the press briefing room on behalf of her department.

Although the president’s donation is nothing compared to what he wants to spend on infrastructure in the coming years it’s still a lot more than any other past president has ever given, especially Democrat presidents in recent past. This donation will go towards the proposed $21 billion infrastructure spending proposal for the fiscal year 2019 which was announced on Monday. But this is only a small part of a proposed larger spending plan that would dedicate $200 billion to infrastructure over the next decade.

Here is more on the proposed Infrastructure spending bill via USA Today:

“President Trump will unveil his long-awaited infrastructure proposal Monday to shift $200 billion over the next decade from other federal programs to pave the way for $1.5 trillion for roads, bridges, waterways and railways.

Trump’s approach is to let Congress negotiate the details. His four objectives are to stimulate new investment, streamline federal permitting, invest in rural projects and improve the workforce, according to four senior administration officials who briefed reporters Saturday.

Spurring construction is broadly popular. But critics are already calling Trump’s approach “fake” and a “scam” for its lack of new revenue and because of its reliance on funding from local governments and private investors.

“This fake proposal will not address the serious infrastructure needs facing this country, so our potholed roads will get worse, our bridges and transit systems will become more dangerous, and our tolls will become higher,” Rep. Peter DeFazio of Oregon, the top Democrat on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, said in a Saturday radio address.

Trump’s proposal is built on top of existing construction programs with an eye toward encouraging greater local investment, according to senior administration officials. Polls show people would prefer to have projects determined locally, rather than sending their money to Washington, according to the officials.

Trump and members of his Cabinet will tour the country to point out where construction is needed — and where admirable projects have been accomplished, according to senior administration officials.

A poll administration officials cited from September found 84% of Americans think the country needs infrastructure investment. The Harvard CAPS-Harris poll surveyed 2,177 registered voters.

Groups such as the National Association of Counties, the National Conference of State Legislatures and the U.S. Conference of Mayors issued a joint statement Thursday welcoming Trump’s focus on infrastructure.

Trump’s program will be debated by six committees in the House and five in the Senate. The administration has been conferring with lawmakers since March 2017 on the program, holding 40 meetings with caucuses or other groups to gauge priorities and get feedback, according to a senior administration official.

Congress could still develop its own funding. Trump is open to new sources of revenue, according to senior administration officials.

In 2015, lawmakers patched $70 billion from sources such as a Federal Reserve surplus, Customs and Border Protection fees and the sale of part of the strategic petroleum reserve in order to provide $305 billion for the last five-year highway bill.

The gas tax traditionally funded the highway trust fund. But the tax has remained 18.4 cents per gallon since 1993, and it hasn’t kept pace with inflation as cars became more fuel-efficient.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, an influential advocacy group for businesses, proposed in January raising the gas tax 5 cents each year for five years to generate $394 billion over a decade.

“It’s the simplest, fairest and most effective way to raise the money we need for roads, bridges and transit,” Chamber CEO Tom Donohue said.

Under Trump’s budget, the $200 billion in federal funding will be taken from other programs that are cut or eliminated, according to senior administration officials. The precise trade-offs aren’t designated.

Trump’s priorities include $100 billion for incentive funding to match local investments; $50 billion for rural projects distributed as block grants to governors; $20 billion for expanding loan programs and private bonds for roads, waterways and railways; $20 billion for transformative projects with a vision for the future; and $10 billion for federal building projects.

The federal government traditionally provided 80% of funding for qualified highway construction. But Trump’s incentive funding is projected to provide 10% or 20% of a project’s cost to generate $500 billion to $1 trillion in total investment, according to senior administration officials. The loan programs could generate 40 times the federal investment, officials said.

While the federal share would fall, senior administration officials said the change will reduce the reliance on the federal government for a broader variety of worthy projects. Only 28% of all highway construction and only 4% of water projects nationwide get federal funding, the officials said.

Local matching funds could come from sales or property taxes, or user fees. The city of Los Angeles adopted a sales-tax referendum in November 2016 to generate $120 billion over 40 years for infrastructure, which administration officials said could serve as an example for others.

Tolls would be one way to spur private investment in roads or bridges. But they wouldn’t be financially justifiable everywhere.

“This is one of the tools in the toolbox,” Pat Jones, CEO of the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association, said before Trump unveiled his plan. “We believe we need an approach to infrastructure that says, ‘all of the above.’ ”

But shifting the financial burden onto states and local governments, and to private groups, is what drew criticism.

“This is not a real infrastructure plan — it’s simply another scam, an attempt by this administration to privatize critical government functions, and create windfalls for their buddies on Wall Street,” DeFazio said.

Other aspects of Trump’s proposal include:

•Putting a single federal agency in charge of permitting for each construction project, such as the Transportation Department for a highway or the Army Corps of Engineers for a water project. The single review could stop second-guessing and delays from other agencies.

•Giving governors rural grants for greater local control over how money is spent on projects such as broadband.

•Removing training obstacles for workers who don’t attend four-year colleges. The proposal would expand eligibility for Pell grants and allow the transfer of professional licenses from part of the country to another.”

In addition, the White House is saying this spending program would lead to an investment of over $1.5 trillion on roads, bridges, waterways, and railways. Which is something our nation is so lacking at this moment.

Since he took office Donald Trump has donated all his salary back to the US. The National Park Service, The Department of Education and the Department of Health and Human Services. Not bad considering the current Democrat favorite for 2020, former Vice President Joe Biden, who is no pauper himself increased his charitable donations from 1.5 percent of his income back in 2012 to a whopping 1.87 percent in 2016. But I’m sure since President Trump did this it will never be enough and the left will still find something to criticize him about.
