U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) asserted during an appearance on MSNBC that supporters of former President Donald Trump are “domestic terrorists” who may be “preparing a civil war against us.”

Fox News and other news agencies have picked up on the 85-year-old congresswoman’s comments. She also reportedly declared, “It is not just that [Trump is] a criminal, this is a man who disrespects the Constitution and democracy and we have got to find out what they are doing as domestic terrorists [who] tried to take over the government on Jan. 6.”

Waters, a career anti-gunner, accused Trump of not caring about democracy or the U.S. Constitution. She claimed Trump is “in love with Putin and Russia and Kim Jong-un and North Korea.”

Perhaps the most ominous of her remarks, as quoted by Fox, were revelations that she will ask the Justice Department and President Joe Biden “to tell us what they are going to do to protect this country against violence if [Biden] loses.”

“I want to know about all of those right-wing organizations that [Trump] is connected with who are training up in the hills somewhere and targeting what communities they are going to attack,” Waters stated. “We need to know now, given that he is telling us there is going to be violence if he loses. We need to know what his plan is and how we are going to be protected.”

According to AOL.com, the California congresswoman is distressed that Trump has claimed his trial was “rigged.”

At that point, Trump appears to have a lot of company. A CBS News/You.Gov poll found that 86 percent of Republicans and 46 percent of Independents believe the former president did not get a fair trial. Meanwhile, 96 percent of Democrats and 54 percent of Independents thought the trial was fair, while only 14 percent of Republicans agreed.

“Most Democrats say it’s made them more confident in the justice system,” CBS reported. “Among Republicans, three quarters say it’s made them less confident in it.”

It was Waters who, back in 2018, encouraged her supporters to “publicly confront and harass members of the Trump administration in response to the ‘zero tolerance’ policy that led to the separation of families at the border,” according to CNN at the time.

What about Waters’ allegations about Trump supporters “training in the hills somewhere?” Where is the evidence?

According to raw data from the FBI's National Instant Check System, May's background check inquiries topped 2.1 million. There have been more than 2 million checks initiated monthly for more than a year, and though roughly only half may be directly linked to a firearms transaction, it amounts to millions of firearms purchases.

Waters and other Democrats do not want to see gun sales continuing at a steady pace. But a lot of Americans, for whatever reason, are buying guns. Violent crime, police manpower shortages, and even rhetoric about potential violence pending the outcome of the November election from Waters and others may contribute to a sense of uncertainty.

It is nothing new for Trump critics to accuse his supporters of being misfits in one form or another. Hillary Clinton branded Trump supporters as “deplorables,” a brand the Trump crowd accepted with pride. The very reference to “MAGA Republicans” often mouthed by President Joe Biden and others is something akin to social prejudice.

Trump’s conviction gives Biden and every other Democrat down the ladder the chance to call him a convicted felon. Mediaite notes that Biden is already doing it. It will definitely become part of every campaign from Congress to state legislatures. Out in Washington State, for example, the far left, anti-gun Democrat Attorney General Bob Ferguson—now running for the governor’s office—is doing it, posting on “X” (formerly Twitter), “Dave Reichert’s candidate for president just got convicted of 34 felonies. I’m running for Governor to uphold the law. America must not elect a convicted felon for president.”

Republican Reichert is a former King County sheriff and congressman who has arrested criminals, and his candidacy for governor obviously has Ferguson and Democrats worried, even though Ferguson appears to have lots more money in his campaign coffers than Reichert.

Back to Waters, the Washington Examiner also quoted the congresswoman, who stated, “I’m worried that he’s so divisive, and that he’s talking about retribution, and they’re talking about revenge, and I think that that’s dangerous.”

Considering Waters’ previous advice to her followers to “confront and harass” members of Trump’s administration, she appears to be an expert on divisiveness.

Maxine Waters Calls Trump Supporters ‘Domestic Terrorists,’ Demands Action Against Them

Trump was convicted in a trial that was so fair, so evenhanded that it would have warmed the cold, cold heart of Uncle Joe Stalin. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Hate Orange Man), however, is still not satisfied. Now, she wants the “Justice” Department to go after the supporters of the man the left loves to hate, and who knows? That could very well be the plan.Waters announced on MSNBC: “I am going to spend some time with the criminal justice system, with the justice system, asking them, ‘Tell us what’s going on with the domestic terrorists." Are they preparing for a civil war against us? Should we be concerned about our safety? What is he doing with this divisive language? It's dangerous, and we’re going to have to make sure that we understand, uh, that we’re not at risk with this man talkin’ in the way that he’s doing.'”

It's fitting: if anyone knows how dangerous talkin’ can be, it’s Mad Maxine. She has a long history of doing it herself.

Back in Oct. 2017, when her bête noire was in the White House, Waters spoke at the Ali Forney dinner for LGBT youth in New York and was in high spirits. “Wow, what a moving evening this is,” Waters told the crowd. “I’m sitting here listening, watching, absorbing, thinking about Ali even though I never met him. And with this kind of inspiration, I will go and take out Trump tonight.”

A firestorm ensued, but Waters waved it away, insisting that she was simply talking about impeaching Trump and removing him from office: “Everybody knows that I’m on the front lines not talking about harming anybody but I am talking about impeachment." I don’t think this President should be representing our country … he creates controversy, he cannot get along with our members of Congress, and I’m going to continue my efforts to impeach him.” How she thought she could singlehandedly impeach Trump on the night of the Ali Forney dinner, she didn’t bother to explain.

Waters showed a taste for incendiary rhetoric on other occasions as well. In 2018, she called on her followers to confront and menace Trump administration officials. “If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant,” Waters told a gaggle of her followers, “in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

Then in April 2021, as the nation and the world held its breath waiting for the verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the police officer accused of murdering George Floyd, Waters threw gasoline on the flames: “I hope we get a verdict that says guilty, guilty, guilty. And if we don’t, we cannot go away. We’ve got to stay on the street. We get more active, we’ve got to be more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.” That was too much even for the leftist propagandists at CNN, who ran a piece entitled “Maxine Waters just inflamed a very volatile situation.”

But now she professes to be worried that Trump’s comments about his trial and conviction being politically motivated and dangerous for America’s future as a free republic will move those MAGA-hatted racist redneck yahoos (whom we hear about so much from leftists but never see in real life) to commit acts of violence. Coming from someone who has always waved away concerns about her own potential incitement, this is oddly inconsistent — at least until one remembers that for leftists, the rules they apply to their ideological foes never, ever apply to themselves.

After all, the object of Waters's unquenchable hatred, Donald Trump, has never called for violence, yet Waters and other leftists insist that he is a dangerous insurrectionist who is bent on destroying “our democracy” and ruling as a dictator. The real worry, however, is or should be over Waters herself and her comrades. They don’t hesitate to use the language of incitement against those whom they hate and fear and are so intent on demonizing and dehumanizing their opponents that they are creating an environment in which violence against Trump supporters will be widely seen as justified and even necessary.

If she weren’t so dangerous, Maxine Waters would merely be ridiculous. Other authoritarians who were inclined to violence, including that little German fellow with the Charlie Chaplin mustache, have been faintly ridiculous, too.

2:34 PM – Thursday, May 30, 2024

The jury in the so-called Trump “hush money” case has found 45th President Donald Trump guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records.

The verdict was reached by the jury in just over 11 hours.

Prior to the declaration, reporters, prosecutors, and Trump all anticipated that the jury would be excused for the day at 4:30 p.m.

Shortly after the verdict was read, Trump was seated in the courtroom with his arms crossed and a dejected expression on his face.

Meanwhile, supporters of Trump expressed their thoughts on the verdict on social media platforms.

“Ray Charles could’ve seen that coming,” said one commenter on Meta (Facebook).

Many had expected the guilty verdict in light of the fact that the trial took place in the overwhelmingly liberal state of New York, with a liberal judge whose daughter works for a company that provides digital campaign work like online fundraising, mobile messaging, and web design for Democrat politicians.

In this case, Trump was found guilty of 34 felonies related to manipulating business records pertaining to a $130,000 payment made by his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to porn star Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 election.

The Manhattan Supreme Court jury’s decision was rendered just hours after they were shown excerpts of Merchan’s legal instructions on Wednesday, in addition to readbacks from Cohen and former National Enquirer publisher David Pecker’s testimony.

Trump is the first former president of the United States to face criminal charges.

During the trial, Cohen alleged that Trump gave him the order to pay Daniels before the 2016 election in order to stop her from hurting his chances of winning the presidency.

“This was a disgrace, this was a rigged trial… They wouldn’t give us a venue change… This district and this area… The real verdict is going to be November 5th by the people… We didn’t do a thing wrong, I’m an innocent man. "I'm fighting for the country, I’m fighting for the constitution… We will fight for our constitution,” Trump said after the trial.

Sentencing has been set for July 11th.

The Republican National Convention event will be held from July 15th-18th.

Joe Biden proposes hitting Donald Trump with a $1 billion tax bill

The president has proposed a tax on unrealized capital gains for people worth more than $100 million. Who do we know falls into that category?

Biden has released a clever campaign document disguised as a budget.

That’s something they may come to regret, because it’s a campaign document for the presidential election. And as such, it’s pretty clever. 

Among its features, buried in the fine print, is a big stick that Biden can be expected to use against Donald Trump in the fall.

That stick: a hefty 25% tax on unrealized capital gains for people worth more than $100 million.

Hmmm. Who do we know who is worth more than $100 million and likes to brag about paying no taxes?

During Trump’s first debate with Hillary Clinton in 2016, she brought up past tax disclosures that showed that in certain years, her opponent had effectively paid no federal taxes. Trump didn’t deny it. “That makes me smart,” he retorted. He didn’t offer a rebuttal when she said he might have paid taxes for a decade.

Even former Trump cheerleader Ann Coulter found that too obnoxious to bear.

The U.S. tax code is insane in many ways. (Biden’s budget, incidentally, would pile still more complications and convolutions onto a system that is already a monstrosity.) One of its features is that, despite what Bernie Sanders likes to imply, it does not treat millionaires and billionaires the same way.

People who earn more than $1 million a year are generally taxed very heavily. If you include state and maybe local taxes, the top rate for such earners may already be near 50% and could soon be much higher. Even people who earn a lot less but have at least $1 million in assets usually pay pretty hefty taxes.

It’s the billionaires whose tax bill resembles a love letter from the IRS. Billionaires along with those worth hundreds of millions of dollars, that is.

Those people don’t live on income. They live on assets. Taxes on assets range from low to nonexistent. 

I know, I know — it’s an absolute shock that the donor class has bought themselves a tax code that benefits them at the expense of everyone else. Right?

It’s something to think about every time politicians argue about taxes for “high earners,” trying to equate those people with the super-rich. Most high earners are workers and are taxed heavily. Unless politicians start to go after untaxed assets, they are just playing you.

Which brings us to Biden’s fascinating campaign document wrapped in a federal budget. The key facts don’t even appear in the budget itself, but in a companion document titled “General Explanations of the Administration’s Fiscal Year 2025 Revenue Proposals.” It comes from the U.S. Treasury, not the White House, and is nearly 300 pages long.

Page 83 is a doozy. “The proposal would impose a minimum tax of 25 percent on total income, generally inclusive of unrealized capital gains, for all taxpayers with wealth (that is, the difference obtained by subtracting liabilities from assets) greater than $100 million,” it says. 

Objectively, this shouldn’t be a big deal. Workers have to pay a 24% tax rate once their taxable income for the year exceeds $95,000, or $190,000 for joint filers. Those rates rise as high as 37% once people clear about $600,000 a year. It hardly seems like the height of communism to levy a 25% tax on people worth more than $100 million.

But it will be greeted that way, because it touches the donor class. (When people criticize Congress, I like to remind them that we have the best Congress money can buy.) Cue the inevitable cries of “taxing wealth creators” and so on.

Apparently the rest of us aren’t wealth creators.

Biden’s proposal is an attempt to move the so-called Overton window on the issue of assets and wealth taxes. The Overton window refers to ideas that are considered within the realm of normal debate. Elizabeth Warren brought up wealth taxes during her failed 2020 presidential election campaign, but the proposals went down with the ship. Biden, or his team, wants to bring them back into the discussion. 

We don’t know how much Donald Trump is worth, or how much that changes from year to year. Forbes says that figure is up about $4 billion this year, mainly due to Trump’s stake in Trump Media & Technology Group DJT, 5.16%, currently valued at around $4 billion. Based on the company’s financials, we can assume that’s nearly all profit.

At these levels, his Biden tax would be a cool $1 billion.

Taxes will not become law. Not anytime soon, and maybe never. But it will surely make for a lively punch line this fall.
