    The clock is ticking on tax cheat Charlie RangelBy: Byron York Chief Political Correspondent September 1, 2009 It hasn't gotten much attention amid news of Ted Kennedy, Obamacare and the worsening outlook in Afghanistan, but an extraordinary situation is developing in the House of Representatives. With each passing day, it's becoming more clear that the powerful committee chairman in charge of writing America's tax laws is a financial wheeler-dealer, a serial asset-hider, and a tax offender. Rep. Charles Rangel has been in the House since 1971. He's as old bull as you get in the Democratic hierarchy, and he waited...

    Stop embarrassing us, Mr. Rangel. ResignBy: Mark Tapscott Editorial Page Editor 08/28/09 4:52 PM EDT Want to understand why 2009 has witnessed the eruption of Tea Party and Town Hall protests of unprecedented intensity? Look no further than Rep. Charles Rangel, the New York Democrat who is chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee that writes tax law for the rest of us. A parade of steadily more serious revelations was capped with news that Rangel somehow forgot to report as much as half a million dollars in assets and income on his 2007 financial disclosure report. It's impossible...

    RANGEL UNTANGLEDC DEMS MOVE TO SAVE HIM By GINGER ADAMS OTIS Last updated: 3:37 am August 30, 2009 House Democrats are willing to rally around Rep. Charles Rangel in his latest spate of tax missteps -- but only as long as no more embarrassing revelations come to light, sources told The Post. The head of the powerful Ways and Means Committee last week amended six years' worth of financial disclosure forms and revealed he'd earned $1.3 million in previously unreported income. That's on top of ongoing House Ethics Committee probes into four other areas of Rangel's financial past -- including...

    Teddy Kennedy was memorialized at a solemn funeral Mass on Saturday in Boston in a service reminiscent of the way Kennedy spent his days on Earth: bringing together disparate elements of the America's political and social worlds, flummoxing his foes and inspiring his more numerous admirers – and, albeit through surrogates this time, tirelessly working the room on behalf of his latest legislative project. This was a "Catholic" event in both the uppercase and lowercase sense of the word--a grand religious ritual that matched or exceeded anything even in the storied history of the Boston church, and a "catholic,"...
  • Mexican Police Arrest 6 Men for Stealing Pieces of Border Fence (To sell for scrap metal!)

    Police in the Mexican border city of Tijuana say they have arrested six men for stealing pieces of the U.S. border fence to sell as scrap metal. Holes in the border fence once were more commonly made by migrant smugglers, but fewer people are trying to cross because of a weak U.S. economy and a crackdown on immigration. The Tijuana police department says the suspects intended to sell the steel sheeting as scrap. The first two men caught cutting into the fence on Monday. An alleged accomplice was detained Tuesday with 11 pieces of fencing. The U.S. Border

    Ever notice that those who endorse high taxes and those who actually pay them aren’t the same people? Consider the curious case of Ways and Means Chairman Charlie Rangel, who is leading the charge for a new 5.4-percentage point income tax surcharge and recently called it “the moral thing to do.” About his own tax liability he seems less, well, fervent. Exhibit A concerns a rental property Mr. Rangel purchased in 1987 at the Punta Cana Yacht Club in the Dominican Republic. The rental income from that property ought to be substantial since it is a luxury beach-front villa and...

    IRS workers are demanding the right to cheat on taxes without severe penalties like Obama's cabinet nominees. Treasury secretary Timothy Geithner, in charge of the IRS, failed to pay failed $34,000 in taxes before his nomination. Five other top Obama cabinet nominees have been caught in arrears on their taxes. However, IRS agents can be fired for simply filing a late return or failing to report a few hundred dollars of income. IRS employees are very angry at the double standard. According to the Chicago Tribune,"Our members are upset and angry," said Colleen Kelley, president of the National Treasury Employees...

    Clinton and Geithner to co-lead talksBy Mark Landler Published: February 22, 2009 BEIJING: Speculation about who would control China policy has crackled in diplomatic circles since it became clear that Hillary Rodham Clinton was not ready to cede the Middle Kingdom to the Treasury, as happened during the Bush administration. Clinton, the secretary of state, said she and the Treasury secretary, Timothy Geithner, would be co-chairmen of a high-level consultation between China and the United States that would be balanced between strategic issues like North Korea and economic concerns. Before leaving Beijing, Clinton met with prominent female Chinese lawyers, doctors...

    One thing the Republicans can attempt to do is try to start impeachment proceedings on "Little Tommie Daschle". The new RNC Chairman Michael Steele should take this football and run with it. If the new Democratic Congress and Administration is going to hoodwink the American public out of almost a trillion dollars towards "recovery", the Republicans should come out fighting. One gift handed the Republicans is the Tax Fraud by "Little Tommie Daschle". Could be a point of Freeper Activism -- just bringing up mention of the Daschle Tax Fraud during Tax filing season. Bringing the word "Impeachment" to the...

    Soon after he won confirmation on a closer than expected 60 to 34 vote in the Senate last night, tax evader Timothy Geithner was sworn in as secretary of the Treasury. "Had he not been nominated for treasury secretary, it's doubtful that he would have ever paid these taxes," said Sen. Robert Byrd (D-West Virginia). Byron York of National Review has a good blog post on Democratic senators who refused to vote to confirm Geithner and NR's Andy McCarthy has a list of 10 Republican senators who voted to confirm him.
