‘EDUCATE! DON’T INDOCTRINATE!’: Trump Threatens To Pull Tax Exempt Status of Colleges and Universities He Deems ‘Liberal Indoctrination Centers’

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Friday ordered the Treasury Department to review the tax exempt status of colleges and universities he deemed “liberal indoctrination centers.”

The president took to twitter to blast the schools as he traveled to his southern base of operations in Florida.

“Too many Universities and School Systems are about Radical Left Indoctrination, not Education,” Trump tweeted. “Therefore, I am telling the Treasury Department to re-examine their Tax-Exempt Status and/or Funding, which will be taken away if this Propaganda or Act Against Public Policy continues. Our children must be Educated, not Indoctrinated!”

According to the Association of American Universities, a majority of U.S. public and private colleges and universities are tax-exempt entities because they are entities of state governments that are declared 501(c)(3) organizations.

The IRS permits primary or secondary schools, colleges and professional trade schools that have regularly scheduled curriculum, to qualify as tax-exempt educational organizations, including federal, state, and other publicly supported schools.

The president’s comments come after he criticized higher learning institutions this week for balking at welcoming students back in the fall in fear of the ongoing Coronavirus epidemic.

He has also blamed colleges and universities in recent weeks for many of the protests that have torn the nation, particularly those where protesters removed statues honoring leaders of the Confederacy and historical figures such as George Washington.

“Against every law of society and nature, our children are taught in school to hate their own country,” he said, “and to believe that the men and women who built it were not heroes but that were villains.”

REPORT: 1.4 MILLION ILLEGALS WORKING UNDER STOLEN SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS

WASHINGTON, D.C. — As president Donald Trump continues his battle to secure the nation’s border, a new assessment suggests the problem with illegal immigration may be even worse than previously thought.

A report published by the Internal Revenue Service on Thursday documents that as many as 1.4 million illegal immigrants may be working in the United States under stolen or fraudulent social security numbers (https://www.treasury.gov/tigta/auditreports/2017reports/201740031fr.pdf).

Even more disturbing, the IRS only managed to identify approximately half of the people impacted by the fraud during the 2015 tax year, the Treasury Inspector General declared in his report.

“Cases of employment identity theft can cause significant burden to innocent taxpayers, including the incorrect computation of taxes based on income that does not belong to them,” said J. Russell George, the inspector general.

During a 2015 audit (http://oig.ssa.gov/sites/default/files/audit/summary/pdf/Summary%2034030.pdf) the Inspector General found there were 6.5 million U.S. Social Security Numbers (SSN) for persons 112 years or older on the active Social Security roster. Given that there are estimated to be only 35 people age 112 years or older on the planet, the audit confirmed that the Social Security Administration was actively paying fraudulent claims for dead people each month and enabling tens of “thousands of instances of potential identity theft.”

The report comes as president Donald Trump continues his efforts to build a wall separating the southern United States from Mexico, a plan that his Democratic rivals claim is driven by racism.

A February 2017 report by The Los Angeles Times suggested that as many as many as eight million illegal alien currently living in the U.S. could qualify for deportation under President Donald Trump’s immigration plan (http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-trump-deportations-20170204-story.html).

Ronald Mortensen, in a report for the Center for Immigration Studies (http://cis.org/mortensen/president-trumps-executive-order-puts-americans-first-least-75-illegal-aliens-eligible-deportation), claimed that, if enforced, Trump’s immigration reform efforts could lead to the deportation of some 75 percent of the country’s illegal alien population.

In his report, Mortensen argued that pro-immigrant claims of illegal aliens paying into the Social Security system are null and void based on findings that many are earning income through fraudulently obtained Social Security numbers, which are often times stolen from unsuspecting American citizens.

“So, until President Trump issued E.O. 13768, the career politicians that he replaced had consistently put illegal aliens first and deliberately ignored the terrible harm done to the American men, women, and children whose Social Security numbers are stolen,” Mortensen wrote.

“Rather than protecting Americans, career politicians and their business, media, and faith-based allies stood by as the medical records of innocent children were corrupted by illegal aliens using their Social Security numbers, with life-threatening consequences,” Mortensen continued. “They did nothing as their constituents’ and neighbors’ credit records were destroyed by illegal aliens and as the arrest records of illegal aliens were attached to the stolen Social Security numbers of hard-working Americans.”

Trump’s immigration reform plain is in major contrast to that of former President Obama’s where only about 1.4 million illegal aliens were considered qualified for deportation.

‘GOD BLESS AMERICA’: TRUMP STRIKES BACK AGAINST WAR ON FAITH; SIGNS EXECUTIVE ORDER TO PROTECT RELIGIOUS FREEDOMS

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In a move to restore religious freedoms in the U.S., president Donald Trump signed on Thursday an executive order to protect churches from sanctions by the IRS.

In his introduction of the president during a National Day of Prayer event inside the Rose Garden, Vice President Mike Pence said the National Day of Prayer is a time to reaffirm “the vital role people of faith play in American society” and praised Trump for marking the importance of the day.

“Our President is a believer. He loves his family and he loves his country with an unshakeable faith in God,” said Pence.

After thanking the Vice-president, Trump took to the podium and declared that the war on Christianity by the government is over.

“We’re a nation of believers. Faith is deeply embedded into the history of our country, the spirit of our founding and the soul of our nation,” Trump said as religious leaders and members of his staff looked on. “We will not allow people of faith to be targeted, bullied or silenced anymore.”

After a word of prayer with attending clergy, the president signed the executive action which effectively reverses the ban on political speech from the pulpit that was introduced in 1954 by then-Democratic Sen. Lyndon Johnson. Johnson’s bill, which was approved by Congress, gave the IRS the authority to punish tax-exempt religious organizations, including churches, for making political endorsements or participating in political campaigns.

“We are giving our churches their voices back,” Trump said.

“You are great, great people,” the president continues, pointing to the religious leaders in attendance. “No one should be censoring sermons or targeting pastors.”

“God bless you, and God bless America,” he concluded.

The order, “to protect and vigorously promote religious liberty”, was met with welcome praise by religious leaders from around the country.

“The first freedom in the Bill of Rights is religious freedom. America was born on the foundation of religious freedom and it is one of our most cherished liberties. There could be no better day to sign an executive order on religious freedom than the National Day of Prayer,” Mat Staver, chairman of Liberty Counsel, said of the executive action.

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, also praised the order.

“The open season on Christians and other people of faith is coming to a close in America and we look forward to assisting the Trump administration in fully restoring America’s First Freedom,” Perkins said in a released statement,

However, critics of the president were quick to categorize the order as an attack on the LGBT community.

In a statement, (https://www.aclu.org/news/aclu-statement-reports-impending-religious-freedom-executive-order) Louise Melling, ACLU’s deputy legal director said of the order: “The ACLU fights every day to defend religious freedom, but religious freedom does not mean the right to discriminate against or harm others. If President Trump signs an executive order that attempts to provide a license to discriminate against women or LGBT people, we will see him in court.”

When reached for statement on the ACLU’s response, a White House spokesperson said the president had, “no comment” on the organization’s threat.
