All last year Democrats hammered away at Pat McCrory saying, Disclose, disclose, disclose – demanding McCrory disclose the clients he worked with at the Charlotte law firm of Moore and Van Allen.
 
Apparently, no one gave a toot and, after the election, the Governor may well have thought and he’d heard the word disclose the last time. But, then, after taking office, a lobbying scandal dropped into his lap – Secretary of Crime Control Kieran Shanahan landed in the soup for practicing law part time after taking office. Shanahan cured that problem by giving up practicing law and restored peace – but only for a few days. Because next the Democrats landed on the fact Shanahan’s wife owns a lobbying firm and this time when Shanahan landed in the soup the Democrats pulled McCrory in too, chanting, Disclose, disclose, disclose.
 
Again, again, again.

Think Progress reports that over past ten years $3000 Billion of income has been held overseas to avoid our taxes. How much would we tax that income? Our corporations have about $2000B in profits. A 30% profit would be no big deal. A tax on $900B profit. Is not this being overplayed?
In 2012 Corporations paid a 12.1% Tax Rate on $2000B of profit.
12.1% of 900B no great revenue growth for Uncle Sam.

All In The Family

The US has entered into a contract with a real estate firm to sell 56 buildings that currently house U.S. Post Offices. The government has decided it no longer needs these buildings, many of which are located on prime land in towns and cities across the country.

The sale of these properties will fetch billions of dollars and a handsome 6% commission to the company handling the sales. That company belongs to a man named Richard Blum. Who is Richard Blum you ask?

Why the husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein, that's who. What a bunch of crooks we have running this country!

Senator Feinstein and her husband, Richard Blum, stand to make a fortune. His firm, C.R. I., is the sole real estate company offering these properties for sale. Of course, C.R.I. will be making a 6% commission on the sale of each and every one of these postal properties.

All of these properties that are being sold are all fully paid for. They were purchased with U.S. taxpayers dollars, and they are allowed free and clear by the U.S.P.S. The only cost to keep them is the cost to actually keep the doors open and the heat and lights on. The United States Postal Service doesn't even have to pay property taxes on these subject properties. Would you sell your house just because you couldn't afford to pay the electric bill?

Well, the Post Office is.

How does a powerful U.S. Senator from San Francisco manage to get away with such a sweet deal?

A powerful United States Senator's husband is standing by, all ready to make millions from a U.S. taxpayer funded enterprise.

No one in the mainstream media is even raising an eyebrow over his 6% commission on the sale of hundreds of millions of dollar's worth of quasi-public assets.

Pass this info on before it's pulled from the internet.
