Rhode Island Bill Could Keep Trump Off 2020 Ballot Unless He Releases Tax Returns

Rhode Island passed a bill that was passed by the state’s senate requires presidential candidates to disclose their income tax returns in order to appear on the ballot in 2020. The bill is aimed at Trump because he refused to release them in 2016, claiming that they were under audit. Other states are considering similar legislation.

Rhode Island’s state Senate on Tuesday passed a bill that would require candidates for president and vice president to make their tax returns public in order to get on the Rhode Island ballot.

The bill — which passed by a 34-to-3 vote — now goes to the state House.

The legislation’s lead sponsor, Sen. Gayle Goldin (D), noted that every presidential candidate since Richard Nixon voluntarily released their tax returns until Donald Trump’s presidential run.

“Tax returns provide essential information about candidates’ conflicts of interest,” Goldin argued.

During Trump’s campaign for the Oval Office, he faced heavy criticism for not releasing copies of his tax returns.

Trump refrained from making his filings public, saying they were under audit by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and he would release them once the review was complete.

Virginia: Eleven MS-13 Gang Members Have Been Charged with Killing Two Teens

Eleven MS-13 gang members are facing life in prison after being charged in the kidnappings and deaths of two teens whose bodies were dug up in a Virginia park last year. The teens were killed weeks apart, as MS-13 allegedly believed that one was a member of a rival gang and the other was thought to be a police informant. The group’s motto is “Kill, rape, control.”

Eleven MS-13 gang members have been charged with the kidnapping and murder of two teenage boys from Virginia, announced the Department of Justice on Friday. All the gang members who have been charged are in their 20s and originally from El Salvador, though it’s unclear if they are legally or illegally in the United States.

Seventeen-year-old Edvin Escobar Mendez and 14-year-old Sergio Arita Triminio have been identified as the victims.

In a statement to Townhall, U.S. Attorney’s Office Director of Communications for the Eastern District of Virginia Joshua Stueve said, “While we note in the press release that all of the defendants are from El Salvador, we did not include any information as to their immigration status.”

Ten of those charged are currently being held in a federal detention center while one still remains at large, though he’s suspected to have fled the U.S.

Restaurant Owner Who Booted WH Press Secretary Sarah Sanders Says Gay Employees Too Triggered

The owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia says that she refused service to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders because some of her gay employees were triggered over the Trump administration’s transgender military ban. The story went viral and people began comparing it to Christian conservatives who have been sued for refusing to bake wedding cakes for gay couples.

The owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia says that she booted White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders because her gay employees were triggered over the Trump administration’s transgender military ban, according to an interview she gave to the Washington Post.

In a nutshell, Sanders was joining a party of eight booked under her husband’s name. The owner, Stephanie Wilkinson, was at home when her chef called to let her know that the staff was highly offended at Sanders’s presence:

Sarah Huckabee Sanders had just walked in and sat down, the chef informed her.

He said the staff is a little concerned. What should we do?” Wilkinson told The Washington Post. “I said I’d be down to see if it’s true.

Tell me what you want me to do. I can ask her to leave,” Wilkinson told her staff, she said. “They said yes.

Several Red Hen employees were gay, she said. They knew Sanders had defended Trump’s desire to bar transgender people from the military. This month, they had all watched her evade questions and defend a Trump policy that caused migrant children to be separated from their parents.

 

At the end of the night, staff members wrote on their employee whiteboard “86 Sara Huckabee Sanders” – a code for throwing someone out of an establishment. One of the servers photographed the whiteboard and posted it to his public Facebook wall.

After the story went viral, Sanders posted to Twitter: “Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so

People are already comparing the incident to the Christian bakery who was recently granted the right to refuse service to a gay couple over their religious beliefs. Liberals have suggested that conservatives have no right to have a problem with Sanders’ ejection, while conservatives are noting that liberals who had been fighting against exclusionary business practices are suddenly OK with Sanders being excluded.

Aid Workers with Soros-Funded ‘Doctors Without Borders’ Accused of Trading Medicine for Sex

Africa: George Soros funds Doctors Without Borders (aka MSF) that offers charity medical care, but also acts politically. Whistleblowers reported seeing a senior member of staff in Kenya bringing “very young girls” back to his place, adding that they were prostitutes. Another witness reported hearing a senior aid worker boast it was “so easy” swapping medicinal supplies for sex while stationed in Liberia. The problem is said to lie with senior staffers who may be “too big to fail.”

Aid workers at Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) traded medicine for sex with vulnerable young women in Africa, former employees of the open borders-backing NGO have alleged.

Whistleblowers told the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme Thursday that the use of prostitutes by staff at the George Soros-funded foreign aid NGO was “blatant and widespread”.

One of the female former employees, who were speaking anonymously for fear of being blacklisted by aid charities, reported seeing a senior member of staff bringing “very young girls” back to MSF accommodation in Kenya, adding that it was “implicit” they were prostitutes.

“My colleague, who was staying in the same residence for a long time, felt that this was a regular occurrence,” she said.

Another whistleblower reported she was shocked after hearing a senior aid worker boast it was “so easy” swapping medicinal supplies for sex while stationed in Liberia.

“I thought, ‘what did he just say?’ He was suggesting lots of the young girls who had lost their parents in the Ebola crisis that they would do anything sexual in exchange for medication,” she told the BBC.

Radical Leftists Harassed and Spit on Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi at Theater

Florida AG Pam Biondi was screening an anit-bullying film about Mr, Rogers when radical leftists assailed her, with large men spitting on her and blocking her exit from the theater, while others screamed at her for supporting  Trump.

Left-wing activists harassed Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi at a movie theater on Saturday over her support for the Trump administration, yelling at her as she left and returned to her vehicle.

The Tampa Bay Times reports:

A video of the confrontation, taken by progressive activist Timothy Heberlein of Organize Florida, shows several people shouting down Bondi as she leaves the theater escorted by law enforcement after seeing Won’t You Be My Neighbor.

“What would Mister Rogers think about you and your legacy in Florida? Taking away health insurance from people with pre-existing conditions, Pam Bondi!” Maria José Chapa, a left-wing organizer, screamed at Bondi. “Shame on you!”

Another heckler yelled: “You’re a horrible person!”

Whitney Ray, a spokeswoman for Bondi, told the Tampa Bay Times that the video shared on social media showed only a small portion of what actually happened.

“The video they are choosing to share is of the least aggressive portion of the attack that transpired after police arrived to control the scene. What they are not sharing publicly are several previous encounters involving large men getting in the Attorney General’s face, spitting and blocking her exit,” Ray said.

Portland Protesters Shut Down ICE, Police Stand Down, Protests Spread

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler has sanctioned the siege of the ICE building as police stand down against protesters who aim to abolish ICE. Protesters have built a tent city and the anti-ICE movement is spreading to other cities across America.

Hundreds of protesters in Portland have surrounded the area’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) building, not letting anyone in or out, essentially holding the building under siege, and it has closed temporarily. Under normal circumstances, this would be considered domestic terrorism, but the Portland police are standing down and allowing the protesters have free reign to create havoc wherever they go.  Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler sanctioned the takeover.

The protesters have built a tent city of more than 80 tents, 4 portable bathrooms, 6 couches, a medic’s office, a daycare center and a commissary.  The camp is still seeking mental health therapists.

“Occupy ICE” protests have spread to New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Utah and Washington state. There is no clear leader, however, Democratic Socialists of America are involved in most states, alongside groups associated with prison abolition, immigration rights and anarchists.
