Dubious $3.7 million home deal: Has this elitist governor promoted himself above the law?
The United States is a Constitutional Republic which means we are a government without a king, accountable to the people and governed by the “rule of law,” in which the law is applied equally to all citizens.
Or so we’ve always been told.
America’s political elite who deem themselves royalty, and live accordingly, are the same politicians who have been keeping their citizens in states under total lockdown for the purpose of destroying the economy, they mandate the wearing of face masks which they themselves do not wear, they prohibit travel to second homes and family cabins while traveling themselves, are keeping schools locked down, attend funerals while our dead cannot be mourned in a service, and they are thwarting the use of hydroxychloroquine – a known prophylaxis (prevention) to coronavirus, and a successful cure… all to try to force President Donald Trump out of office one way or another.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom, one of the most Aristocratic, elite politicians to come along, has some serious, quite large, tax delinquency issues, according to RedState:
“Gov. Gavin Newsom (D). He personally owns more than $6 million in real estate in the Golden State, giving him a massive property tax bill every year. And even though he received $2,695,000 cash in late January from Union Bank as a cash-out refinance on his $3.7 million Sacramento County mansion, he didn’t turn around and pay property taxes due in either Sacramento County or Marin County. In fact, at this moment his Kentfield estate is listed as ‘delinquent’ on the Marin County Tax Collector’s website.”
The Governor, who is pushing numerous tax increases on the peasant taxpayers of the state, doesn’t pay his? Try not paying your property taxes and see how the government responds.
As the Los Angeles Times reported in 2018:
“Gavin Newsom wasn’t born rich, but he was born connected — and those alliances have paid handsome dividends throughout his career.
A coterie of San Francisco’s wealthiest families has backed him at every step of his political rise, which in November could lead next to his election as governor of California.
Among those patrons are the Gettys, the Pritzkers and the Fishers, whose families made their respective fortunes in oil, hotels and fashion.”
The peasant taxpayers are repeatedly told by this governor and the compliant media that they aren’t paying their “fair share” of residential and commercial property taxes, if they are fortunate enough to own their home, or the building and property that is home to their businesses.
“Newsom received a $3.7 million estate from an LLC owned by his cousin then, a few months later took out a $2.695 million (tax-free) cash-out mortgage on it — and didn’t report the gift on any of his financial disclosure forms.”
If any other state legislative staffer or elected Assembly member or Senator failed to report income or even a $51 dinner with a donor, the Fair Political Practices Commission would investigate and fine the individual.
RULES ARE FOR THE LITTLE PEOPLE: De Blasio admits city skipped permit process to paint Black Lives Matter murals.
City officials ignored their own application process for public art projects to paint Black Lives Matter murals around the five boroughs, in order to mark an important moment in history, Mayor Bill de Blasio said as his administration faces claims of First Amendment violations for refusing to green-light other proposals.
“We haven’t said ‘no’ to people, we’ve said, ‘If you want to apply, you can apply, but there’s a process,’” de Blasio said during his City Hall press briefing Monday.
The pro-President Trump group Women for America First has sued City Hall for blocking a mural of their slogan “Engaging, Inspiring and Empowering Women to Make a Difference!” on a Manhattan roadway, while allowing multiple BLM paintings throughout the city.
