    Blue Mountain News with Robert Powell

    Hello I’m Robert Powell, welcome to BMN. We have breaking news tonight from the European Union. In response to Executive order #15 issued by the Fitzgerald Administration, an order where it was deemed Steel tarrifs shall rise 25% and 10% on aluminum, the EU is implementing a 25% tarrif on American products including, motorcycles, denim, cigarettes, cranberry juice and peanut butter. If you like most Americans buy any of these products, you will see your prices rise. These tarrifs designed to help American could end up hurting us and could drive us into a trade war with the EU. I’ll update you with more, until then, this is BMN. Goodnight.

  5. John Alexander Today I have introduced a bill to allow DC to have representation in Congress. This country was founded on the ideals of no taxation without representation. But now we have a district with more population then 2 US states, but that has no voting power in Congress. They cannot vote to raise or lower taxes. And they cannot vote to go to war or not. With this bill we can change that. I urge my colleagues to give the people representatives and a voice in our democracy. View full PR

  8. H. R. 1285 To provide for full voting representation in Congress for the citizens of the District of Columbia, and for other purposes. IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Mr. Alexander, with thanks to Ms. Norton, introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary A BILL To provide for full voting representation in Congress for the citizens of the District of Columbia, and for other purposes. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE. This Act may be cited as the ‘No Taxation Without Representation Act of 2019. SEC. 2. FINDINGS. Congress finds the following: (1) The residents of the District of Columbia are the only Americans who pay Federal income taxes but are denied voting representation in the House of Representatives and the Senate. (2) The residents of the District of Columbia suffer the very injustice against which our Founding Fathers fought, because they do not have voting representation as other taxpaying Americans do and are nevertheless required to pay Federal income taxes unlike the Americans who live in the territories. (3) The principle of one person, one vote requires that residents of the District of Columbia are afforded full voting representation in the House and the Senate. (4) Despite the denial of voting representation, Americans in the Nation’s Capital are second among residents of all States in per capita income taxes paid to the Federal Government. (5) Unequal voting representation in our representative democracy is inconsistent with the founding principles of the Nation and the strongly held principles of the American people today. SEC. 3. REPRESENTATION IN CONGRESS FOR DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. For the purposes of congressional representation, the District of Columbia, constituting the seat of government of the United States, shall be treated as a State, such that its residents shall be entitled to elect and be represented by 2 Senators in the United States Senate, and as many Representatives in the House of Representatives as a similarly populous State would be entitled to under the law. SEC. 4. ELECTIONS. (a) FIRST ELECTIONS- (b) CERTIFICATION OF ELECTION- The results of an election for the Senators and Representative from the District of Columbia shall be certified by the Mayor of the District of Columbia in the manner required by law and the Senators and Representative shall be entitled to be admitted to seats in Congress and to all the rights and privileges of Senators and Representatives of the States in the Congress of the United States. (1) PROCLAMATION- Not later than 30 days after the date of enactment of this Act, the Mayor of the District of Columbia shall issue a proclamation for elections to be held to fill the 2 Senate seats and the seat in the House of Representatives to represent the District of Columbia in Congress. (2) MANNER OF ELECTIONS- The proclamation of the Mayor of the District of Columbia required by paragraph (1) shall provide for the holding of a primary election and a general election and at such elections the officers to be elected shall be chosen by a popular vote of the residents of the District of Columbia. The manner in which such elections shall be held and the qualification of voters shall be the same as those for local elections, as prescribed by the District of Columbia. (3) CLASSIFICATION OF SENATORS- In the first election of Senators from the District of Columbia, the 2 senatorial offices shall be separately identified and designated, and no person may be a candidate for both offices. No such identification or designation of either of the 2 senatorial offices shall refer to or be taken to refer to the terms of such offices, or in any way impair the privilege of the Senate to determine the class to which each of the Senators elected shall be assigned. SEC. 5. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES MEMBERSHIP. (a) IN GENERAL- Upon the date of enactment of this Act, the District of Columbia shall be entitled to 1 Representative until the taking effect of the next reapportionment. Such Representative shall be in addition to the membership of the House of Representatives as now prescribed by law. (b) INCREASE IN MEMBERSHIP OF HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES- Upon the date of enactment of this Act, the permanent membership of the House of Representatives shall increase by 1 seat for the purpose of future reapportionment of Representatives. (c) REAPPORTIONMENT- Upon reapportionment, the District of Columbia shall be entitled to as many seats in the House of Representatives as a similarly populous State would be entitled to under the law. (d) DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA DELEGATE- Until the first Representative from the District of Columbia is seated in the House of Representatives, the Delegate in Congress from the District of Columbia shall continue to discharge the duties of his or her office.

    Blue Mountain News with Robert Powell

    A small update to give. I caught up with Secretary of State Walter Reed and asked him for a comment on the Kazakhstan situation. Here’s the video. Walter Reed: We have no jurisdiction in Kazakhstan Robert Powell: Do you condemn their actions Mr. Secretary Walter Reed: Of course Robert Powell: Do you think the US should put any sanctions or anything like that in Kazakhstan? Walter Reed: It’s being considered Robert Powell: Thank you Mr. Secretary There you have it. The United States condemns the actions of the State of Kazakhstan. But it looks like they will not take any immediate action if any at all. That’s all for now.
  11. I have introduced today a bill to stop construction of the wall on the southern border. This wall costs too much. To many Americans have to pay too much for something that is unnecessary. Our people do not want this wall so we should not build it.
