Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee Chuck Grassley slammed the media Thursday for its hypocrisy in failing to investigate, refusing to publish the truth and cover-up the allegations against President-elect Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden, who is now under an FBI criminal probe.
Moreover, the media wasn’t the only culprit. It is evident based on stories published in the media prior to the Nov. 3, general election that the intelligence community, in sync with social media tech platforms also repressed and censored stories that could have damaged Biden’s chances at the presidency.
Currently, President Donald Trump, along with 17 States in the Union, are fighting in the courts to expose what they allege is extreme election fraud that led to Biden’s victory. They are absolutely right in challenged the election and presenting the allegations of fraud by dozens of witnesses that volunteered during the election.
The nation is at a crossroads and it’s uncertain where we are headed.
Grassley didn’t hold back. As the former head of the Senate Judiciary Committee he is keenly aware of the false investigations against Trump by the FBI and the intelligence community during the past four years. He is also leading the charge, along with Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., to investigate the litany of evidence against Hunter Biden and his business dealings with Ukraine, Russia and China.
“For over a year, Senator Johnson and I investigated the Biden family financial dealings,” said Grassley. “We found that they engaged in potential criminal financial deals across the globe, including China, which created counterintelligence concerns.”
Grassley noted that he made the work and findings public, “but the liberal media and Democrats chose to dismiss it. They even falsely claimed our work was Russian disinformation in order to protect the Biden’s.”
He said the same liberal outlets that disparaged “our investigation now report that Hunter Biden’s financial deals in China raised counterintelligence concerns.”
Moreover, said Grassley it was the Biden Transition Team on Wednesday that “confirmed that Hunter Biden is under criminal investigation for his taxes and financial dealings. It’s outrageous that the Fourth Estate would choose to ignore facts when they are uncovered by Republicans.”
“I don’t do oversight for the fun of it,” he said. “It’s serious business. It shouldn’t take subpoenas and confirmation from Hunter Biden himself to get the rest of the press to pay attention.”
The media isn’t doing its job and that’s apparent but it will be up to the American people to call them out and hold the media accountable because it is failing our republic.
NY Lawmakers want to tax tech giants to get $500M to fund unemployment benefits for illegal migrants
New York lawmakers are debating over a proposed Democratic initiative that would pave the way for a multibillion-dollar fund designed to provide unemployment benefits for illegal immigrants. Spearheaded by state Senator Jessica Ramos, a Queens Democrat, the proposal has ignited passionate discussions within the Senate Finance Committee, where it currently awaits further deliberation.
The Center Square reports the proposal would utilize a $500 million trust fund earmarked specifically to offer jobless benefits for individuals who find themselves ineligible for traditional unemployment payments and other public assistance programs. To finance this ambitious endeavor, proponents of the plan are advocating for the imposition of a novel tax targeting tech behemoths like Google and Amazon. This tax, aimed at digital advertising revenue, is projected to generate hundreds of millions of dollars to sustain the fund.
Ramos has alluded to her belief that migrants are a fundamental contribution to the state’s economy. Despite their authorization to work, payment of taxes, and active involvement in the labor force, undocumented immigrants face a glaring disparity—they are excluded from accessing vital safety nets like unemployment benefits if they lose their jobs.
In a social media post, Ramos cited the expiration of federal unemployment insurance for freelancers and the depletion of the Excluded Workers Fund. She argues vehemently for a safety net aligned with the evolving dynamics of the labor market, one that extends support to all workers, regardless of their immigration status.
The proposed fund, aptly named the Unemployment Bridge Program, outlines comprehensive eligibility criteria encompassing a spectrum of marginalized workers—from undocumented migrants to freelancers and individuals recently released from incarceration or immigrant detention. By establishing clear guidelines and procedures, the program endeavors to streamline the application process, ensuring equitable access to unemployment benefits for those in need.
The initiative comes in the wake of prolonged deliberations regarding jobless benefits for undocumented immigrants and nontraditional workers in New York. Amid the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, the state previously allocated $2.1 billion to the Excluded Workers Fund, offering a lifeline to those excluded from conventional unemployment benefits.
Gov. Kathy Hochul’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2025 underscores a commitment to supporting asylum seekers, with significant allocations directed towards housing and legal assistance. The proposal has met with opposition from Republicans, who argue for prioritizing legal residents and taxpayers in the allocation of state resources. Senate Minority Leader Rob Ortt contends that limited resources should be reserved exclusively for those who have contributed to the state’s tax base.
