Ocasio-Cortez vows to raise taxes while refusing to pay her own

 The socialist superstar owes the Internal Revenue Service $1,870 in business tax through a company she founded.

 According to Fox News:https://www.foxnews.com/politics/company-founded-by-ocasio-cortez-i...

Brook Avenue Press, a company she founded in 2012 to publish children’s books in The Bronx, owes the state $1,870.36 in corporate taxes, public records show.

The state slapped the company with a warrant on July 6, 2017, two months after Ocasio-Cortez announced her candidacy to run against Democratic incumbent Joe Crowley for the district that encompasses parts of Queens and The Bronx.

The state requires businesses to pay a corporation tax on a sliding scale based on revenue. The minimum payment last year was $25.

“The company probably got numerous letters from the state and probably ignored them,” one New York City accountant theorized.

Americanthinker.com reports: So like her fellow New Yorker Leona Helmsley, who went to jail for not paying her taxes, paying taxes is for “little people.” But as Ocasio-Cortez informed us earlier, she’s “the boss.”

 It’s not even a high amount that she’s thumbing her nose at, and on her congressional salary, she’s easily got the money to pay it.

She just doesn’t — which calls to mind what a hypocrite she is.

 Her mom fled New York to avoid its punitive tax rate, and that didn’t make a dent on her. Now she’s calling for a 70% top rate in taxation on the “tippy top” of income-earners to pay for her “green new deal,” which would hardly cover it if it were, God forbid, enacted, meaning that that tippy top she babbles about would soon extend down the food chain fast, meaning huge tax hikes for everyone.

 But obviously, not her. It just goes to show how ignorant she is of how the world works — or, more likely, how she exempts herself from the lifestyles she would impose on others. She doesn’t even pay her piddly taxes under the current regime.

TOTAL BULLSHIT!: FBI Arrests Leader Of Militia Group Stopping Illegal Aliens In New Mexico

The FBI on Saturday arrested Larry Hopkins, the leader of the militia group that is stopping ‘asylum seekers’ after they illegally cross over the US border into New Mexico.

Hopkins was arrested shortly after the anti-American ACLU accused the militia group of kidnapping and illegally detaining the aliens.

Reuters reported:

Hopkins, 69, also known as Johnny Horton, was arrested in Sunland Park, New Mexico, on a federal complaint charging him with being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a statement.

“We’re not worried about it, he’s going to be cleared,” said Jim Benvie, a spokesman for the United Constitutional Patriots (UCP), blaming his arrest on political pressure from Lujan Grisham.

Hopkins is the “national commander” of the UCP, which has had around half a dozen members camped out on a rotating basis near Sunland Park since late February.

More than 300 ‘asylum seekers’ trying to illegally cross the US border this weekend surrendered to an armed militia of New Mexico citizens comprised of ex-cops and veterans.

This is what happens when the US government doesn’t even uphold its most basic commitment to the American people, to secure the borders from invaders.

The militia then handed over the detained aliens to US border patrol.

The militia immediately came under attack — PayPal and GoFundMe banned the group of armed citizens from being able to raise money.

In a statement to BuzzFeed, PayPal claimed that the group violated their “Acceptable Use Policy.”

“The account associated with United Constitutional Patriots has been closed due to a violation of our Acceptable Use Policy,” the spokesperson told BuzzFeed News. “We do not allow PayPal services to be used to promote hate, violence, or other forms of intolerance that is discriminatory.”

Mark Cheney, who identified himself to BuzzFeed as the “commander” of the militia, said that the bans have “killed” their efforts.

“They killed us,” Cheney said. “I have to find some other way for people to donate.”

There is a crisis at the US-Mexico border and the Democrats and activist judges are fighting President Trump at every turn.

In March alone, over 100,000 illegal aliens were detained by US border patrol.

According to reports, over 1.5 million illegal aliens will enter the United States in 2019 if the surge continues at the current rate.

Instead of arresting the illegal alien invaders, the FBI arrests an American man who is defending the borders. Let that sink in.
