Excitable California Senate Passes Bill Requiring Trump Show Tax Returns To Be On Ballot

The excitable Democrats in the People’s Republik Of California should read their own Constitution, as well as the federal Constitution, because they do not have the authority to do this, but, then, this is more about their feelings….unhinged feelings…than any sort of law

California Senate passes bill that would keep Trump off 2020 ballot unless he releases tax returns

The California state Senate on Thursday approved a bill to require candidates appearing on the presidential primary ballot — including President Trump — to release five years’ worth of income tax returns.

The measure was approved in a 27-10 vote, according to The Associated Press. California, for the first time, will be one of the first states to hold its presidential primary in the 2020 cycle.

The bill is a response to Trump’s insistence that he will not release his tax returns as presidential candidates traditionally have done, claiming he is under audit. If the bill becomes law and Trump does not release his returns, he may not appear on the California primary ballot.

“We believe that President Trump, if he truly doesn’t have anything to hide, should step up and release his tax returns,” said state Sen. Mike McGuire (D) who co-authored the bill, according to the AP.

All 10 Republicans in the state Senate voted against the bill’s passage.

“I get that playing the resistance card may be good politics for the majority party, but I would submit that it’s bad policy for Californians,” Sen. Brian Jones (R) told the wire service.

First, Trump doesn’t need California. He won’t win it. The last time a Republican won California was 1988. There’s, what, a 3% chance that a Republican could win the state now? Second, there will still be lawsuits when this passes the California House and signed by Extreme Leftist Governor Gavin Newsome. Unless Gavin somehow gets wise. Because this will also be material for Republicans and Trump to highlight how deranged and partisan California has become.

The requirements to be president are laid out in the Constitution: California cannot legally add one.

    It doesn’t matter. Trump gets the same number of electoral votes from California either way. But 2020’s Hillary doesn’t get to claim “winning the popular vote” without putting an asterisk by it.

    Might pass a bill to clean up all the shit on their streets. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

    The left has begun gearing up to steal the 2020 election. This move by Cali is but one of many that the unscrupulous radical left will use to defraud America. I read at Moonbattery where Paul Joseph Watson has been thrown off Facebook and Instagram. There will be an effort to deplatform and silence any and all people and sites that helped Trump in 2016 and/or are supportive of anything not radical left.

    Something needs to be done. We cannot allow our Constitutional rights to be taken because “it’s a private company”. First off they are modern utilities therefore they should be forced to treat all citizens alike. Secondly no “private company” has the power to take away our rights and if they do we have a serious problem.

    The left is also trying to force banks to refuse to do business with non leftists and other businesses are being brow beaten to cut off any associations with politically incorrect people and businesses. We can’t allow the left to take away people’s ability to work and earn income just because they don’t like their politics. We are NOT talking communists. or Mohammadans or Nazi’s who are OPENLY hostile to America and actively work toward our end. We are talking about Republicans, conservatives, and other main stream people.

    This is dangerous.

      Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos, Laura Loomer, Louis Farrakhan, Joseph Watson, who works for InfoWars, Paul Nehlen all kicked off Facebook! Whatever happened to our 1st Amendment Constitutional protections forcing private companies to publish all our stuff?

      Hillary Clinton called for China to help the Dems, even begging them to find tRump’s tax returns!!

      Nancy Pelosi criticized Bill Barr’s God-given and Constitution guaranteed right to lie under oath to Congress!! 1st Amendment, people, 1st Amendment!

      Isn’t it time for the GOP to nationalize Facebook, Google, Instagram etc so that Republicans can keep their rights???

      OK, we all agree we should silence commies (e.g., Pelosi, Krugman, Biden etc), warmists, Bill Bears, socialists and Muslims but not mainstream patriotic Americans like Alex Jones!!

      To arms, to arms, the revolution has begun!

      • Kye says:

        Who is the “we” that agree to silence commies or anybody? If private companies can take away our natural rights then we are being run by corporations not elected officials.

        Since information platforms like Facebook etc, never existed before we need to have assurances that the rights of the people will be protected. I know you don’t like that idea Elwood because as a Nazi you’re against free speech but any SANE American knows we can’t have Mark Zuckerberg deciding who can say what and to whom. If these companies are going to be the information platforms of the future we must be guaranteed access to all from the Farakkans to Nazi’s like Elwood or none of us will have any freedom left.

          Fascist/Nazis such as you have all sorts of venues to spew your hate. Why do you want to force private corporations to carry your detritus?

          I thought I was a commie??

          Have you ever had a job? The company you work for can absolutely limit your speech. Should the government step in and protect workers from the consequences of calling the CEO a [email protected] in public?

          Are newspapers obliged to publish every letter they receive? Why should Facebook publish neoNazi hate and go out of business when the decent people leave? Are you invoking public accommodations?

          The Constitution is not a national suicide pact.

            It is only when Lefties start “interpreting” it and calling it “a living document”.

            Have you ever had a job? The company you work for can absolutely limit your speech.

            It can? Love to see that one happen. And Kye has probably worked longer than you’ve been alive.

            Why should Facebook publish neoNazi hate and go out of business when the decent people leave?

            Between the info leaks and the info sales, the censorship on ZuckSucks is driving the decent people away.

            Are you invoking public accommodations?

            Looks like the law is getting ready to, defining stuff like Twat and ZuckSucks as public carriers, like the phone company.

            But, considering trolls like you depend on honest guys like Teach trying to live up to the First Amendment, it’s telling that you want Lefties to enact censorship on a Stalinist level.

            I guess your arguments can’t stand up to criticism, after all. Funny how afraid of the truth you guys are.

          • Kye says:

            Facebook is the new public utility of the 21st century and a platform for free speech and ideas. They don’t NEED to ban anyone. If I don’t like what a person says, I just don’t read his posts. Is that too hard for leftists? Why is the first thing you want always to take people’s rights? Free speech, gun rights, even the right to life.

            I used to figure you for a commie but I mentioned before you could be either. You seem to lean toward the fascist so I figure you’ve moved more toward Nazi. It’s okay, either way you still hate America, Christians and white people and still shit on anybody’s rights who disagree with you. You fit right in in either category.

      • formwiz says:

        Again, the Left proves it can’t stand free exchange of ideas. They’re cowards (aren’t all bullies?).

        And they have to pay trolls like Jeffery minimum wage to get their drivel on as many venues as possible because their cause will fall on its own lack of merit and they know it.

        What would happen if the courts treated Twat and ZuckSucks like the public carriers they are? What if they couldn’t blacklist anybody any more than the phone company could?

        And that’s what this is. Blacklisting.

        The Left is afraid of having to justify their ideas.

        Just look at Jeffery. He lies all the time.

        That’s what liars do. /sarc

          Dutcher, Dutcher, Dutcher…

          As a businessman and entrepreneur, what I believe is that businesses shouldn’t be forced by government to self-immolate. By all means, shout from the rooftops, from talk radio, from FOX, from the Daily Stormer, from millions of websites who allow and encourage your violent bullshit – but why try to force private businesses to destroy themselves with your neoNazi, white supremacist lies and propaganda?

          Decent America crushed the Nazis and the KKK. Why do we have to refight those wars?

          We get it. Fascists want to nationalize private businesses for their own benefit. Real public utilities – airwaves, telephone service, railroads, water, electricity, natural gas, highways, airports, are a bit more valuable than the internet programs that allow you to share recipes and kid pictures, that you want the government to seize.

          Should churches also be considered public utilities?

          Somehow, the right-wing, the anti-Semites, the Islamophobes, the white supremacists have managed to communicate, collude, coordinate and inspire each other without using the recipe-sharing sites too much.

          Does Teach violate the First Amendment by banning commenters?

          And let me guess. Like most far-rightists, you probably support the right of a motel to NOT accommodate Black people or gay people, right?
