The United States is a Constitutional Republic which means we are a government without a king, accountable to the people and governed by the “rule of law,” in which the law is applied equally to all citizens.
Or so we’ve always been told.
America’s political elite who deem themselves royalty, and live accordingly, are the same politicians who have been keeping their citizens in states under total lockdown for the purpose of destroying the economy, they mandate the wearing of face masks which they themselves do not wear, they prohibit travel to second homes and family cabins while traveling themselves, are keeping schools locked down, attend funerals while our dead cannot be mourned in a service, and they are thwarting the use of hydroxychloroquine – a known prophylaxis (prevention) to coronavirus, and a successful cure… all to try to force President Donald Trump out of office one way or another.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom, one of the most Aristocratic, elite politicians to come along, has some serious, quite large, tax delinquency issues, according to RedState:
“Gov. Gavin Newsom (D). He personally owns more than $6 million in real estate in the Golden State, giving him a massive property tax bill every year. And even though he received $2,695,000 cash in late January from Union Bank as a cash-out refinance on his $3.7 million Sacramento County mansion, he didn’t turn around and pay property taxes due in either Sacramento County or Marin County. In fact, at this moment his Kentfield estate is listed as ‘delinquent’ on the Marin County Tax Collector’s website.”
The Governor, who is pushing numerous tax increases on the peasant taxpayers of the state, doesn’t pay his? Try not paying your property taxes and see how the government responds.
As the Los Angeles Times reported in 2018:
“Gavin Newsom wasn’t born rich, but he was born connected — and those alliances have paid handsome dividends throughout his career.
A coterie of San Francisco’s wealthiest families has backed him at every step of his political rise, which in November could lead next to his election as governor of California.
Among those patrons are the Gettys, the Pritzkers and the Fishers, whose families made their respective fortunes in oil, hotels and fashion.”
The peasant taxpayers are repeatedly told by this governor and the compliant media that they aren’t paying their “fair share” of residential and commercial property taxes, if they are fortunate enough to own their home, or the building and property that is home to their businesses.
“Newsom received a $3.7 million estate from an LLC owned by his cousin then, a few months later took out a $2.695 million (tax-free) cash-out mortgage on it — and didn’t report the gift on any of his financial disclosure forms.”
If any other state legislative staffer or elected Assembly member or Senator failed to report income or even a $51 dinner with a donor, the Fair Political Practices Commission would investigate and fine the individual.
So for Newsom to not report the $2.695 million tax-free cash out mortgage deal is just illegal. Who in Marin County or Sacramento County is willing to challenge the governor over his delinquent taxes, or unreported income?
Where is the U.S. Attorney’s office or Attorney General’s investigation into Newsom? Because an investigation needs to be opened.
Not even the Governor is above the law. Or so we are told.
“This is the third tax bill in a row the Newsoms have let slide to ‘delinquent’ status,” Redstate reports.
“Gov. Newsom signed an Executive Order in May 2020, as Bronson Stocking at our sister site Townhall noted, suspending the requirement for county tax collectors to impose penalties, interest, and other costs on property tax scofflaws through May 1, 2021, if the taxes weren’t already delinquent as of March 4, 2020, and if property owner ‘timely files a claim for relief’ with the tax collector.”
This sounds as if Gavin Newsom is signing Executive Orders to benefit his own financial condition – as a royal would do. We wonder if Gavin Newsom will file such a claim for relief of his delinquent property taxes. But that still doesn’t address his unreported outside income.
Meanwhile, Gavin Newsom has kept the state under his original State of Emergency order deliberately to make the Legislature irrelevant (which Democrat Assembly and Senate leaders have allowed), and more importantly, to kill the California economy, which in turn severely harms the U.S. economy.
Newsom comes from San Francisco, as does Nancy Pelosi. It’s not a stretch to believe that Pelosi is sending orders to Newsom to keep California closed, with promises of future political opportunities. It’s no secret that Newsom wants to run for/be President.
Rumors have Newsom and his family traveling between Sacramento and Montana during the coronavirus lockdown, for visits to his wife’s family’s ranch. We know this could be true because the Associated Press and Politifact have vehemently denied it.
The Montana Daily Gazette reported:
According to numerous news reports, “California’s Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom has allegedly been spotted by multiple witnesses claiming that he spent the weekend hiding out at his wife’s family ranch in Stevensville, Montana, as the rest of his state is on lockdown and not allowed to travel.”
“As of right now, Newsom’s California office has denied the accusation he is currently in Montana, but his office’s wording has been vague enough to have some insisting that he briefly visited the Big Sky State of fellow Democrat Governor Steve Bullock over the weekend.”
Notably, all media denials “only sourced Governor Newsom’s office and taken the California Governor for his office’s word that he is currently in California ‘where he has been since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.'”
