What you might not also know about him is that he’s a tax cheat. 

The New York Times reported Tuesday that the civil rights activist and perennial candidate for one office or another owes millions of dollars in unpaid taxes and other obligations.

In what could be called the quintessential example of the entitlement mindset, Sharpton has failed to pay not only taxes, but rent, travel agency fees, and hotel charges that the average person gets sued or jailed for not paying, The Times reported.

He also reportedly used funds from his nonprofit National Action Network to cover private school tuition for his daughter.

American Woman Responds to Muslim’s Death Threat: Wear Body Armor - I’ve Got New Ammo I want to try out - Freedom Outpost

American Woman Responds to Muslim’s Death Threat: Wear Body Armor - I’ve Got New Ammo I want to try out - Freedom Outpost: Many threats from the Islamic world that are being touted against Americans, including a recent threat by the Islamic State in a cowardly video in which they behead men who are tied up. It's refreshing to see the American spirit alive and well… and even more so, when it comes from a gun-toting woman. Ann Barnhardt is such a woman, one with the fire of the Revolution flowing in her veins. Recently, in response to a death threat from a cowardly Muslim, Barnhardt gave an epic response in which she not only provided her address so that Muslim wouldn't have to "find" her, but also told him to be sure and wear body armor because she had some new ammunition she wanted to try out on him.

Video: White House asked if Obama thinks he’s ‘emperor’

Video: White House asked if Obama thinks he’s ‘emperor’: Does President Obama think he’s emperor of the United States?

That’s the question a reporter dared to ask the White House in a press briefing Tuesday.

ABC reporter Jonathan Karl recalled Obama’s argument that he doesn’t have legal authority to bypass Congress and declare amnesty through an executive order. On Feb. 14, 2013, Obama said, “I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed.”

At Tuesday’s press briefing, Karl asked White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, “Does the president still stand by what he said last year when he said, ‘I am not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed.’ Is that still operative?”

“Absolutely,” Earnest replied.

“Not a king, either?” asked Karl, as the audience chuckled.

“That’s right,” said Earnest flatly.

Obama In 2006: 'I Have Stolen Ideas Liberally From Jonathan Gruber'

Obama In 2006: 'I Have Stolen Ideas Liberally From Jonathan Gruber': This weekend, President Obama dismissed MIT professor Jonathan Gruber as “some adviser who never worked on our staff.” But back in 2006, the president struck a much more laudatory tone while addressing the future architect of Obamacare. At a Brookings Institution meeting in 2006, Obama praised the policy accomplishments of the man who would later imperil the Affordable Care Act through repeated comments belittling the intelligence of American voters. In the video, the president calls Gruber one of “the brightest minds from academia and policy circles,” claiming he’s one of a small group of experts from whom he’s “stolen ideas liberally.”

Michael Savage: Here’s how to stop Obama amnesty

Michael Savage: Here’s how to stop Obama amnesty: There’s a simple way to stop President Obama from using executive orders to advance his radical agenda, and it’s not wielding “the power of the purse,” as the Republican congressional leadership contends, according to talk-host Michael Savage.

The issue is on the front-burner as Obama – expressing frustration with the lack of legislative movement on “immigration reform” – has defiantly vowed to issue an executive order that would allow up to 5 million illegal aliens avoid deportation.

Savage argues Republican have threatened to use the “power of the purse” before, and Obama has moved right ahead. The president issued, for example, an executive order in 2012 that effectively implemented his DREAM Act plan allowing young illegal aliens to remain in the U.S. indefinitely.

Gruber Video: 'Guns Are A Public Health Issue' | The Daily Caller

Gruber Video: 'Guns Are A Public Health Issue' | The Daily Caller: Another video has resurfaced of MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, this one showing the Obamacare architect speaking candidly about guns while claiming that the National Rifle Association is holding “hostage” President Barack Obama’s nominee for Surgeon General.

“By the way you have now permanently prevented yourself from winning a high elected office in the United States despite your charisma,” Harold Pollack told Gruber at the end of a three-part interview about Obamacare recorded in April, predicting the backlash Gruber is facing by months in advance.

“You know they’ll be playing this tape back in an endless loop with a guy with a deep voice in the background,” Pollack predicted.

Gruber doubled down, segueing from speaking openly about Obamacare to another topic.

“I’ll guarantee it further by highlighting that guns are a public health issue,” Gruber said.

Those same insurers have long viewed government as an unreliable business partner that imposed taxes, fees and countless regulations and had the power to cut payment rates and cap profit margins.

Another rude Obamacare surprise awaits - Yahoo Finance: Taxes are bad enough when you know they’re coming—and much worse when they arrive unexpectedly.

As the Affordable Care Act enters its second year of operability, a key and controversial element of the plan will begin to affect several million Americans for the first time. People who didn’t have health insurance during 2014 may soon have to pay a penalty fee that starts at $95 and goes up based on how much you earn. Some Americans know about the penalty, and they’ve budgeted for it or at least accepted its inevitability. But several million others could be in for a rude surprise when Washington assesses a fee they didn’t even know was coming.

The fact that a government, any government, has branded it terrorist must be as embarrassing to the mainstream media as it is to Hamas-linked CAIR — that is, if either of them were capable of embarrassment.

Obama takes 1st step in ‘handcuffing’ successor

Obama takes 1st step in ‘handcuffing’ successor: While the Obama administration trumpets a “historic” agreement on carbon emissions with China, a leading climate expert says the U.S. economy would have to collapse to comply with the terms of the deal, but President Obama’s main goal is to make it difficult for the next president, Congress and the courts to strike down his many environmental regulations.

While in China for the Asia-Pacific Economic Summit, Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping came to an agreement that would have the U.S. reducing its carbon emissions between 26 and 28 percent from 2005 levels. The Chinese, meanwhile, vowed to try to peak their emissions by 2030 and attempt to get 20 percent of their energy from “zero carbon emission sources” by that same time.

Most party leaders here will assure you all conversations about the 2016 presidential nomination still begin and end with Hillary Clinton.
