"Documents reveals Senate Democrat pressured the IRS, the Department of Justice, to target conservative groups. This is what's going on with the Democrat party, and their use of federal authority. Could be taking place in any fascist or Marxist regime. Because that's their mindset, its totalitarian, and their media mindset, because they are of the Democrat party. Sheldon whitehouse, remember this Democrat Rhode Island called for revoking a tax exemption for a conservative group for not masking up and socially distancing during the pandemic. Insisted on a slew of investigations of other conservative groups and pressed for the IRS to expand its reach. Total a 176 pages of correspondence from in two White House was obtained from the IRS. By the conservative watchdog group, American accountability foundation through the freedom of information act and shared with the daily signal. It's abundantly clear that senator White House is trying to take the 87,000 new IRS agents and put them to work investigating me and my Friends. Because he doesn't like their politics at Tom Jones, president and founder of the American accountability foundation. The letters spanned from January 1920 21, the day before Biden took office to May 2022. White House long has been a critic of conservative nonprofit organizations and uses an expansive definition of dark money groups. Broadly defined as tax exempt organizations that don't disclose donors. Oh, really? Well, the Democrat parties perfected that. The Rhode Island Democrat first elected in 2006 is made dark money a central point of Senate floor speeches. Yeah, but not against his colleagues. That's for sure. And often uses up to his entire 5 minute question period to make related speeches during hearings of the Senate judiciary and finance committees. Its lowest learner on steroids Jones said of Watson, The White House correspondents referring to the IRS official in the middle of the Obama era IRS scandal over the targeting of Tea Party groups. And I want to remind you that this retro baked Jack Smith, the new special counsel was specifically chosen because of his activities involving targeting Tea Party and conservative groups at the IRS. And urging Lois learner to criminalize their activities. The lowest learner stuff was a mid level bureaucrat abusing her power to investigate conservative groups that he said, this is a U.S. senator, basically trying to turn the heat up on investigations by the IRS. So Sheldon whitestone had his way, Jones said, Lois Lerner would just look like a test run of what should and whitestone has in mind. Targeting turning point USA, turning point USA, our good friend Charlie Kirk's group. Because they held an event at then president Trump's Mar-a-Lago without masking. Turning point's mission is to train and develop young Americans to become conservative leaders. You believe this? Yes. Unbelievable. It's not the only group. This senator. I mean, there ought to be a big time investigation of this. In this senator, joining his letter by Amy Klobuchar, along with 38 other Senate Democrats, going after going after conservative groups.

"Annual survey of the 50 states rates the bottom ten from worst on 50 to 41 as New Jersey, New York, California, Connecticut, Maryland, Minnesota, Vermont, Hawaii, Rhode Island, and Alabama. All right. So it sounds like I should stay living in Nevada. Next question has Russell fox encountered any businesses that present gambling wins and losses as part of a diversified portfolio of investments on their tax returns. In other words, the firm allocates a certain amount of capital to gambling, such as staking a pro and the rest to other activities. Unfortunately, alchemy went out in the Middle Ages and it's not allowed in the tax code. And a fundamental principle of U.S. tax law is that the type of income remains the same when it moves from person to person. So gambling income is always gambling income. And that includes staking. So basically we don't see this because it's not allowed. All right? The last question we have is from somebody, it was a convoluted question and I'm going to simplify it. I hope I get it right. Get to big W two G doesn't want to have a big tax bill on April 15th. So he wants the casino to take out 30% now, so he doesn't have a problem later. He wants to know if most is this legal to ask and will most casinos comply. Yes, and yes, it is absolutely allowed. Most casinos do comply if you ask them to withhold. I mean, casinos obviously are large businesses. They send plenty of money to the IRS. For various withholding. And they are supposed to comply. And by the way, you can do this for state taxes, too. And voluntarily have state tax withheld, and I have clients who do this. So this absolutely can be done.

"Told police to focus their efforts around an isolated cattle ranch off the road, Tara had been biking. And look, you don't have to be psychic to be like, hey, maybe whoever took her took her to this super remote isolated place only 8 miles from where she was last seen. And the fact that police hadn't already searched that area is a little baffling. So police searched the ranch and wouldn't you know, the psychic had been wrong. No Tara. So police were like, okay, no more messing around, let's be serious, only science backed methods from now on. Just kidding, the police then hired a water Witcher. That's right, strangers, the police hired a water Witcher, paid to put them up in a local motel and paid him a $150 to wave a stick around. And because the police spent tax dollars on a water Witcher, I have to spend time explaining what a water Witcher is for those of you who don't know. I apologize in advance. A water Witcher or dowser, according to the U.S. geological service, is someone who uses a fork stick made from a variety of different trees, including but not limited to willow, peachtree and witch hazel, but they might also use a rod or pendulum or keys or wire coat hangers or pliers or wire rods or various kinds of elaborate boxes and electrical instruments. And they don't just find water, no, water witchers have been used to help find bombs, oil, gold, and lost TV remote controls, apparently the practice has been around for centuries, if not millennia, across various countries. The point is, do I believe in water witching? No. Have I been wrong about plenty of other things? Yes. And if defunding the police means taking away their funds for paying psychics and water witchers, I'm all for it. Anyway, the water Witcher was like she's in that river and the police were like, we already dragged that river, and he said, drag it again. Whether or not they did, I don't know. I suppose in some ways it may not be fair to ride the Albuquerque police too hard for their handling of this case because the Albuquerque police had a lot on their plates in 1988. According to that 1994 piece in the Albuquerque journal, quote, in 1988, the year Tara calico disappeared, violent crimes soared in Valencia county, shootings, stranglings, and slashings typically drug driven seemed to take place weekly in the county, so often that there was a 300% increase in homicides from the year before. 300%, the article then goes on to say that while Valencia county is bigger than Rhode Island, which, I mean, what isn't bigger than Rhode Island, honestly, it only had a population of about 45,000, so there were a lot of vast empty planes where someone might say bury a body where no one would ever find it. Still, aside from local police, there were cruise searching by helicopter and on the ground with bloodhounds, people from the air force and National Guard, state police, search and rescue professionals as well as local volunteers. But not a trace of Tara beyond those three clues from early on was found. And then one year after Tara went missing on June 15th, 1989, 1600 miles away in a parking lot in port saint Joe Florida of all places. A van pulled out of a parking spot, and the woman in the car next to it noticed something odd on the ground where the van had just been. She got out of her car and picked it up and I would imagine immediately regretted it. What she found was a Polaroid photo of what looked like a teenage girl maybe around 15 years old, and a younger boy may be around 8 or 9 years old, lying on some blankets and pillows. They are both bound, their hands tied behind their backs with tape over their mouths, looking at the camera in what can only be described as a sort of exhausted terror. The woman immediately took the photo to police who set up roadblocks, but the white van she'd described pulling out of the parking lot was long gone. The photo was distributed across the country in a bulletin sent out by the missing children information clearing house. Two months later, pat Dole got a call from a relative who'd seen the photo on the popular news magazine show a current affair. The girl, the relative said, looked an awful lot like Tara. And she had a point in so far as the young woman in the photo at the same hair color and complexion as Tara, as well as a spot of discoloration on her thigh that might have matched a scar Tara had gotten in a car accident years before. And then there was the paperback lying next to her. It was my sweet Audrina by VC Andrews. Apparently one of Tara's favorite authors. Of course, VC Andrews was an extremely prolific writer with over 90 novels to her name, many of them young adult novels, so it's not a leap to say that a lot of teenage girls were big fans of her work. That said, though, there were some differences between the girl and the picture and Tara. For one thing, the girl in the photo's face was drawn and more narrow than terrace, but it stands to reason that a few months of perhaps being held captive by whoever took that picture, she might have lost weight. For me, though, it's the eyebrows, which are a totally different shape than Tara's. But the possibility that the girl could be tarot was made stronger not by the image of the girl, but of the boy lying next to her. 5 months before Tara had gone missing, a boy named Michael Henley had gone missing just about 50 miles southwest of Tara's home in the sibolla national park. He'd been on a camping trip with his father and a family friend when he wandered away from the campsite, and by the time anyone realized it, he was gone. Like, gone gone. The search effort was extensive, but stymied by poor weather conditions, and by well meaning searchers who may have erased any sign of Michael by tromping through the same area back and forth. The prevailing theory and Michael's death was that he'd wandered off in shorts and a T-shirt got disoriented and by the time night fell bringing with it freezing temperatures because don't forget the desert can be blazing hot during the day and deadly cold at night. He likely froze to death. But when the Polaroid of these two children's surface, people began to wonder if there was a chance that these were the two children who'd gone missing around the same time around the same area in New Mexico. As awful as this fate was to picture both kids parents welcomed the possibility. Better alive than dead, although as a parent of a 9 year old boy myself, I have to say, I don't know. If heaven forbid Monty disappeared, I just wouldn't want him to suffer. Incidentally, Monty made me tell him a bedtime story the other night where we took him to South Korea when he was one years old and he got lost. And BTS found him and raised him. Anyway.

"Homes are the only homes they can afford to buy. But they only own the structures, not what's underneath them, so many are now at the mercy of big companies that own the land where their homes sit. And pierce Chris Arnold and Robert benning Casa report. 5 years ago, Mike Noel retired and moved from Rhode Island to Florida. And he thought he'd found the perfect spot, a mobile home community named heritage plantation. It's about 20 minutes from the ocean and vero beach. I thought I was moving to Paradise and beautiful weather. And I could fish 12 months of the year instead of three or four months like in Rhode Island. Noel was the manager at a small company that made stainless steel screws. He spent most of his modest retirement savings buying a home here. It looks more like a regular house than what you might think of as a mobile home. Yeah, it's got a small yard, a covered card port, a little spot for his gear. This is my shit. So yeah, so you've got a whole bunch of fishing rats. Yeah. They're called mobile homes because they get brought in on trucks and big pieces. But then they're screwed together and put up on foundations, and basically they're not mobile after that. And since the mobile home park owns the land underneath them, that makes us a pretty vulnerable form of home ownership. Noelle says he learned that the hard way after it started to rain. The first time it flooded here, it was like holy crap. This is not good. And he says whenever a hard rain came through, the roads and driveways flooded. And it wouldn't drain away for hours or sometimes days. When the tenth time that it flooded, well, I had started reaching my limits, because now it wasn't just two, three, four, 5 inches, it was two feet or a foot. Residents say that the water has damaged their homes and is often deep enough that people get trapped in their houses. Some are elderly. They say emergency vehicles have refused to respond to calls due to the flooding. The people across the street are in the 90s. I know people that couldn't get to their chemotherapy appointments. Residents here say there have been other issues too. Problems with electrical wiring, potholes and bad lighting that's caused people to fall on the roads at night and end up in the hospital. People like 79 year old Stan Paxton. He says he needed shoulder surgery after he fell on slimy residue that regularly gets left behind by the flooding. That was just walking my dog. The next thing I know, my left foot goes up from underneath me, and I'm going down this way and I hit the pavement with my shoulder. A group of residents has detailed these and other complaints and a lawsuit against the park's owner. A company called equity lifestyle properties.

Nine of the Original States Required Soldiers to Be Christian
"Know 9 of the original states of the 13 9 of them in their state constitution required all office soldiers to be Protestant Christians. Did you know three states were more liberal and all you had to do was be a plain Christian. Right? Like Delaware, every office holder had to believe in God the father, Jesus Christ, it's always on. The holy ghost one God bless you ever more. You said, that was, that was a plane that was, yeah, that's pretty liberal because you could be a Catholic or a Protestant and say, yeah, I believe in father son and the holy ghost. Whereas in North Carolina, you had to be a Protestant Christian up until 1835. And one state had zero religious requirements to hold state office, Rhode Island founded by baptist, and they said that if you required someone to be a Christian, they could say they were just to get elected, and that would be hypocritical. So just vote for the best Christian person. You know, we're just not going to put it in the constitution. So that was the founding. It was those states that sent representatives to write our U.S. Constitution. It makes no sense to think that they would outlaw themselves.
The Christian Foundation of Our Nation With Bill Federer
"People will say that there's nothing exceptional about America. And that America is not a Christian nation. Tell us why that is historically incorrect. So Muslims invading Europe, the Catholic king of Spain tries to stop them, can't, then Martin Luther starts the reformation. The king of Spain tries to stop that and he can't, and he finally makes a deal with the protestants. And he is called a piece of Augsburg of 1555. I took German in college and you know how to say 1555 in German? Film styles from 404 from sake. I think it sounds funny. Anyway, 1555 piece of Oxford, it let every king decide what's going to be believed in his kingdom. And so suddenly Europe, you have England being Anglican, Scotland, being Presbyterian, Holland being Dutch reform, Greece being Greece, orthodox, Germany being Luther in Switzerland, calvinist in Italy, Spain, France, et cetera, Catholic. And if you didn't believe the way your king did, you fled. And those were the people that spilled over and founded colonies in America. So I read through every charter of every colony. England, you had the anglicans founded Virginia, Puritans founded Massachusetts, congregationalists founded Connecticut and New Hampshire. Baptist founded Rhode Island. Dutch reform founded New York. And the Swedish lutherans found that Delaware and New Jersey and Catholics founded Maryland and then the quakers on the Pennsylvania. So just like Europe, there was a different denomination per country in America was more or less a different denomination per colony, and they didn't get along. And

More Guns, Less Crime
"John, I want to ask you the question. If gun control works, how come it never seems to work, particularly in this latest case that we're talking about this highland, this highland park, I'm calling it a massacre. I hate calling it a shooting per se, simply because I'm a shooter. I'm not going out and killing people, but there were signs here. This guy legally obtained a firearm. So if gun control worked, how come it never seems to work, John? Right. Well, unfortunately, I'm not even sure that they really care about heavy laws that work per se. I mean, you have Biden going to buffalo after the tragedy there. And saying if we only had an assault weapons ban like the old federal. So let them ban that those types of attacks wouldn't be occurring. And yet New York already has its own assault weapons being already has one that's even stricter than what the federal government had to begin with. If you look at places like California, they have more mass public shootings than any other state in the country. And yet California's by all these gun control groups is having the best gun control laws. But it's not just the parts of the United States. You look worldwide. I mean, I don't know how many times whether it's Biden or governor pritzker that we just had yesterday or others saying that man's public shootings are unique to the United States, but that's simply false. I mean, if you look at it on a per CAPiTA rate, which is the only way I can think of, you could look at these things. This is not like you're going to compare the total number of murders in California with the total number of murders in Rhode Island or Wyoming. You put it in a rate per CAPiTA per 100,000 people.

Patrick was way behind on his IRS taxes. I was in way over my head. The total amount ended up being somewhere just over $30,000, $30,000. Then the IRS came to collect. Started getting letter after letter, lean had been filed against me. They were going to basically hang me completely out to dry. He had to do something. That's when I reached out to optima tax relief. Patrick's life quickly got a lot easier. It's very easy. Pretty much hands off. They picked up the ball and ran with it. And how did it go? I couldn't believe it. I had to ask like two or three times. I saved an incredible amount of money. How does Patrick feel about optima? Couldn't be happier. They definitely helped me optimize relief.

Why Is the Media Ignoring the Attempted Assassination of Kavanaugh?
"This is Kevin from Rhode Island, Charlie. What do you make of the assassination attempt against Brett Kavanaugh? Why is the media ignoring this? Or they're ignoring it because that helpful. To mention it, the fact that there was a legit assassination attempt against Brett Kavanaugh and his family. Now we still don't know how the U.S. Marshals knew this person was going to drive up to Brett Kavanaugh's home. I would imagine through cell phone surveillance and all of that. That would be an interesting thing to find out and actually be the best case for the Patriot Act that I've heard in quite some time because I haven't heard a good one in a long time because the Patriot Act and all this stuff seems to just be abused and spying on moms and dads that show up at school board meetings. But this has been bubbling up for quite some time. Remember back in May, Jen Psaki said that protests have been peaceful today, and we certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges homes, even though that is a federal crime to go try to influence a Supreme Court opinion outside of a Supreme Court Justice home. Do you think of a bunch of maga hat wearing Trump supporters showed up at katangi Brown Jackson's home? Do you think they would be arrested? Play cut 62. Know that there's an outrage right now, I guess, about protests that have been peaceful to date. And we certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges homes, and that's the president's position. They continue to encourage it outside of judges homes. And that is the president's position. Thankfully, the U.S. Marshals were there to intercept this soon to be lunatic. The soon to be murderer, he had rope, he had knives, he had a gun,
Is This the End of the Electoral College?
"That, I just want to point out that this Electoral College stuff I consider this pretty alarming. That there's such an effort here to, again, undo something that I think is one of the institutions that makes us so great as a country. It's something that helps us to appreciate our diversity. Of all these different geographical places in a way that makes us very special and as always historically made us the United States of America. I'm talking about article two section one clause three, which provided the original plan for our Electoral College. Now, this means little states like the one I grew up in, New Hampshire, you know, I don't have that many electoral votes compared to say Texas or California, but we're still relevant. We're still relevant because of the Electoral College. We wouldn't be at all. I mean, no candidate would bother coming to New Hampshire. Right? Or Rhode Island or Vermont or any of these little New England places because it just wouldn't be worth it. You'd want to spend all your time in California and in New York and in Texas in these big populous centers, but one of the things that makes us special is that our presidents have to answer to all the people in all the little corners of the country. Sure, California has more electoral votes and certainly New Hampshire, but New Hampshire is still relevant. And that's I think one of the best, the best things about this system. And if you destroy that, then you're disenfranchising so many people in this country. Now, the Democrats would argue, look, it's seen its day, it's not relevant anymore because we want to make sure that every single vote counts and in that sense you can't have an Electoral College because that means that some people, like in New Hampshire, they would say are being unfairly overrepresented. As you look back in history, haven't had a perfect relationship between whoever wins the popular vote and whoever actually becomes president of the United States and I was doing my research. It was what 1824 1876 1888 in the year 2000 and then of course, in the year 2016, where again that happened in which you did not have the president in the United States actually winning the full on popular

"What was it like when you first knew you were going to stand behind that Cody? So it was interesting because I was in New York City on December 22nd when Trump had announced that my family had come up. We were actually on our way to Rhode Island. It was a we normally had we go home to my parents place and spend Christmas up there. So I'd been in New York working on the campaign. So that we stopped in New York to kind of pick me up and it was about 1 o'clock. And I remember looking and all of the TV screens had it on. And you know, we went out to dinner and it was just that that day changed everything. And you know, I joke with people that there was the day, you know, I had done about 500 interviews. During the course of my 6 years at the RNC, and I had gotten recognized in like the sweater section of a Joseph a banks in Alexandria. And even then it wasn't even like a real recognition. The guy was like, I think you're the repository guy. Yeah. So it was definitely weird to suddenly go from that to like because, as you know, Trump is a very polarizing guy. Everyone had an opinion. They were either loved you or hated you right off the bat. And then it got much more intense. So it was just, I mean, it's sort of was very, very odd to go from. Walking down the street no one care to suddenly everybody's staring and pointing.
