TTIP will legalize cancer-causing chemicals banned by EU, trade union warns

Britain could be flooded with harmful chemicals currently banned in the European Union if the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) deal is signed next week, a trade union has warned.

The GMB said chemicals that can cause cancerous tumors, birth defects and development disorders will be allowed in the EU after the controversial trade agreement is signed.

The union’s top health and safety officer expressed concern that TTIP would allow a “downward harmonization of standards” for chemicals currently banned in the EU.

In separate comments, GMB called for the UK to ensure the National Health Service (NHS) is protected from private companies if the trade deal goes ahead.

Obamacare sticker shock: Big rate hikes proposed for 2016

Hold onto your wallets ... many insurers want to substantially hike rates on Obamacare policies for 2016.

Many are proposing double-digit premium increases for individual policies, with some companies looking to boost rates more than 60%, according to a list posted Monday by the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

Microsoft And The IRS Are Fighting Again

Microsoft Corp. and the IRS are back in court, this time fighting about the U.S. tax agency’s interest in hiring David Boies, the lawyer who beat Microsoft in an antitrust case in 2000.

The software company filed a federal lawsuit May 29 in Seattle, marking the latest legal flurry over an ongoing Internal Revenue Service audit. At issue are “tens of billions of dollars” in corporate income, according to the IRS.

Microsoft is asking a court to enforce its public-records request for documents on the government’s decision to enter into a contract with Boies Schiller & Flexner LLP in 2013.

Besides the possible return of Boies as a Microsoft adversary, the case is notable because of its size and the amount of public legal wrangling even before the IRS completes its audit. Microsoft has questioned the IRS’s decision to use outside lawyers and amend its regulations to allow non-government employees to question witnesses under oath.

IRS Admits Refunding Billions On Fake Tax Returns

Just hours after being force to admit that they were hacked (by Russians apparently) [8], an inspector general's report shows that The IRS [9]has rather remarkably continued to pay refunds on hundreds of thousands of fraudulent tax returns in recent years, and sent dozens of checks to the same addresses, including in Eastern Europe and elsewhere. While some progress has been made, $2.3 billion of real US taxpayer's money was wrongfully refunded to fake US taxpayers... but with this new cyber-attack, we suspect that number will soar.

This data included Social Security information, date of birth and street address.

A Poem On War

Beyond the count of years I walked the world,

and my children built their shrines to me.

Decades and centuries and millennia pass,

and still the shrines are built.

Temples insubstantial to men,

clear to my eyes.

No foundations or walls or roofs,

but shrines nonetheless.

Holy ground, consecrated

Today, every day, somewhere in the world,

the earth is prepared for my coming.

My hallowed grounds are everywhere.

In valleys and on mountains,

on broad plains and deep in hidden passes,

in deserts, on city streets.

Nameless, unremembered places.

House Bill Would Limit Taxpayer-Funded Benefits to Ex-Presidents

Last year, U.S. taxpayers paid $470,000 in pensions and benefits to former president Jimmy Carter, who left office in 1981.

George H.W. Bush received $837,000. He left office in 1989.

Bill Clinton received $950,000 in pensions and benefits, and George W. Bush got $1.3 million.

In all, U.S. taxpayers paid $3.5 million last year in pensions and benefits to the four living former presidents.

All four former presidents are millionaires, so why do they continue to receive such astronomical benefits - at the expense of taxpayers (many of whom are struggling to survive)?

The dire ObamaCare threat to New York’s hospitals

The bottom line of Stringer’s report: Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, Uncle Sam will cut more than $800 million in payments to the city’s Health and Hospitals Corp, by Fiscal Year 2019.

The president’s signature law slashes federal payments that long helped out hospitals serving lots of patients who lack insurance. The idea was that the law would boost coverage so dramatically the aid would be unnecessary.

Except that illegal immigrants don’t qualify for ObamaCare coverage — and they make up a big chunk of the city’s uninsured population.

New investigation of IRS Obamacare fraud announced by Senate

Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), the chairman of the Senate's Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations (PSI), notified the HHS secretary, Sylvia Burwell, that his PSI has launched an investigation into the alleged mismanagement of the so-called Obamacare exchanges. Portman's letter to Burwell noted his concerns over reported incidents of fraudulent information being processed in order to calculate healthcare subsidies. It is believed the process has been unfair to those Americans who bought insurance through the numerous exchanges and that taxpayer dollars are being misappropriated, such as illegal aliens having completely free healthcare coverage.

The Hegelian Dialectic is a philosophical approach that in principle explains how human beings progress toward a better and more egalitarian condition but in practice provides the power elite with a strategy for controlling society.

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (August 27, 1770 -- November 14, 1831) was among the most consequential philosophers of the Age of Enlightenment. His was heavily influenced by Plato, whose social ideal was rule by an elite composed of philosopher-kings. Though Hegel may not have intended to provide a Platonic methodology for the modern-day control of the many by the few, that is how his insights have been used.

What Does U.S. Treasury Do With Vaccine Excise Taxes It Collects?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Earlier this year I started to research what’s known as the “Vaccine Injury Trust Fund,” a “stash” of cash collected on every vaccine sold and given to children and adults in the USA.

That Trust Fund is “financed” by a $0.75 excise tax on each vaccine active recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. On multi-valent vaccines, i.e., those containing more than one disease active e.g., trivalent vaccines like MMR, DTaP, etc., then 75 cents is paid for each valent, or a total of $2.25 for a 3-valent vaccine.

Now, here’s an interesting aspect: The U.S. Department of Treasury collects those excise taxes and also manages the Trust Fund’s investments. Investments? Sounds like there should be quite a stash in that Trust Fund portfolio...

Well before the conflict for establishing a National Bank in America or the eventual surrender to the money changers with the betrayal in instituting the Federal Reserve, the history of the Bank of England needs to be studied.

Further research will expand this understanding and many of the sources cited can fulfill this objective.

IRS shocks federal judges with statement on targeting conservatives

According to critics of the Obama administration and the IRS, Americans must endure one of the most progressive and intrusive tax-collecting systems in the world. "It appears that the IRS which is supposed to be non-political has been turned into a 'sword' against anyone who dares to disagree with Obama's radical agenda," claims political strategist Mike Baker. "And while the IRS mercilessly pursues average Americans, they permit tax cheats such as Rev. Al Sharpton, who owes the IRS at least $4 million in taxes, to have access to the Obama White House and other parts of the administration. It's believed he's being let off because he has a TV show on MSNBC on which he echoes the Obama White House propaganda and talking points" Baker alleges.

Secrecy Over TPP Fuels Growing Opposition in Congress

As a new report from Politico published Monday details, "If you’re a member who wants to read the text, you’ve got to go to a room in the basement of the Capitol Visitor Center and be handed it one section at a time, watched over as you read, and forced to hand over any notes you make before leaving."

Benjamin Franklin once wrote, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Those famous words came to mind after I spoke with Sarah Jewell, 25, from Sparta. Like most hardworking Americans, the pharmacy technician filed her tax return in February. However, instead of a refund, the IRS sent her a letter that said she was dead.

The letter read “that my Social Security number was coming up that I was deceased,” Jewell said. It just about took her breath away when she found out she’s dead. Obviously, the problem is that she’s still alive.

IRS Seeks To Tax $50k Raised From GoFundMe For Cancer Treatment For Car Crash Victim

In the last two years, Casey has traveled to Maryland and Louisiana for treatment, and received chemotherapy and radiation here in Omaha as well. So far, efforts to find ‘Casey’s Cure’ have shown little progress; the cancer is still there. ...

Just weeks ago, Casey and her family began a new battle. “Two years later, we get a letter saying we owed like $20,000 in taxes,” said Casey. March 30, 2015, the IRS notified the Charfs that what they’d collected through the GoFundMe account should’ve been claimed as income. Of the nearly $50,000 the government wants $15,457 in back taxes, and another $3,676 in penalties and interest. In total, the letter indicates the Charfs owe the IRS $19,133 by April 29th. “We've already used that money for my doctors’ bills and everything that I've needed,” said Casey. “It's donations, it's not income. So how can they tax you on that? I don't get it.”

There are several allegations that the Clinton Foundation is nothing more than a sophisticated and elaborate political slush fund, according to news stories on Monday.

More than one group that was targeted by the IRS for daring to be conservative believes that if there ever was an organization that should be investigated and audited by the IRS it's the Clinton Foundation. The Clintons possess a talent for making incriminating documents disappear and Americans are warned to not hold their breath waiting for the IRS or the Justice Department investigate the Clintons and their arguably corrupt foundation.

Obamacare: AMAC Says The ‘Silence is Deafening’ As We Await Its Fate

“You don’t hear many people talking about the Affordable Care Act these days. It appears interest in Obamacare has dwindled to perhaps its lowest level in the five years since Obamacare was born in 2010. Is it because opponents and proponents of the law are holding their collective breath in anticipation? There’s a lot at stake. If the justices rule that federal subsidies are legit, it’ll be business as usual but if they deny subsidies it will be a devastating blow to the law as it stands,” Weber said.

But the fact is that, behind the scenes, the new Congress has been working on a “course correction” that has its origins well before the enactment of Obamacare.

During the 2015 tax-filing season, the IRS provided what its own Commissioner described as “abysmal” customer service, blaming skyrocketing wait times for telephone and in-person assistance on agency budget cuts. The IRS even called budget cuts “a tax cut for tax cheats.” But a close review of the agency’s spending shows the IRS deliberately cut $134 million in funding for customer service to pay for other activities. Spending decisions entirely under the IRS’s control led to 16 million fewer taxpayers receiving IRS assistance this filling season. Other spending choices, including prioritizing employee bonuses...

NY Times: Would You Let The IRS Prepare Your Taxes?

Around this time every year, Joseph Bankman, a professor of tax law at Stanford Law School and a longtime advocate of using technology to simplify tax filing, gets on the phone with reporters to explain what is wrong with how we do our taxes in the United States. Every year he says pretty much the same thing: No other industrialized country asks its citizens to jump through as many hoops to calculate their taxes as ours.

It isn’t just lawmakers or the hapless-seeming Internal Revenue Service that is perpetuating the annoyance of tax time, he adds. Instead it is the private sector — specifically, the software company Intuit, which makes TurboTax, the most popular tax program in the country.

For more than a decade, Mr. Bankman and a small group of tax experts have called on the government to create a tax preparation method that they say would vastly reduce the time and cost of tax-filing for most people. Intuit has been a primary obstacle to the effort.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is lambasted by Republicans as a «liberal».

Whether described as «liberal», «conservative» or «hawk» – all American presidential candidates are the same in practice. Puppets for sale.

The unintended irony of Clinton’s Republican detractors, who include rabid rightwing Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, as well as the maverick Senator Rand Paul, is that every single one of them will have to spend similar amounts of cash in their anticipated presidential campaigns.

Republicans Push $269 Billion Handout For Millionaire Heirs And Heiresses

House Republicans this week will vote to hand the heirs and heiresses of America's largest fortunes a $269 billion tax break by repealing the federal inheritance tax.

The legislation would shield the very richest families from taxes on the fortunes they inherit. After years of GOP attacks on the inheritance tax, also known as the estate tax, only a few thousand of the wealthiest families are subjected to it -- 4,700 total in 2013, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation. Only individual fortunes worth over $5.43 million can be taxed under current law, an amount that doubles to $10.86 million for wealthy couples. The Republican proposal would eliminate all of these estates -- which are over 15,700 percent richer than the median American household -- from taxation.

Wall Street’s Stealth Tax Break

A tax break that could be the biggest in America is essentially hidden from view. The break on stock market losses flies under the radar, unseen and uncounted, shifting up to 39.6 percent (the top marginal rate) of investment losses onto the U.S. Treasury.

Sens. McCain and Levin urged IRS to target Tea Party, conservative groups

Government documents obtained by a top "Inside the Beltway" watchdog group and released on Thursday reveal that Internal Revenue Service's Lois Lerner was strongly urged by Sen. Carl Levin, D-Michigan, and Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, her assistance in attacking certain non-profit political groups. The organizations they selected for targeting by Lerner were part of the Tea Party and conservative movements.
Newly released documents revealed that Sen. Levin (left) and Sen. McCain both urged the IRS to target conservative groups in the wake of the Citizens United decision.

The group that investigates and exposes government corruption, Judicial Watch, released newly acquired IRS documents, including an email from Ms. Lerner in February 2012 requesting she “put together some training points to help them [IRS staffers] understand the potential pitfalls of revealing too much information to Congress."

Press Release - Tax Day - We Refuse to Pay for War and Weapons

“Dear IRS”
We Refuse to Pay for War and Weapons

“We cannot in conscience pay for the killing of other human beings or pay for war and preparations for war.”

“I have not included a check for the amount I still owe for 2014, about half of my total income tax bill. I do not voluntarily pay for government programs that involve killing human beings or requiring them to kill others.”

"As I calculate my total taxes ‘owed’ I like to dream about how the money will be used. Instead of paying for drones or bombs I am paying to ensure that everyone has access to basic needs and the tools needed to succeed in our community."

As April 15, tax day, approaches, thousands of individuals — like David and Jan Hartsough, Elizabeth Boardman, and Ari Rosenberg quoted above — sit down and write letters to the IRS, Congresspeople, the President, newspapers, blogs, and friends and family explaining why they protest war with their taxes.

Scott Walker's trip to Great Britain cost taxpayers $138,200

— On the eve of another foreign trip, Gov. Scott Walker's administration disclosed Thursday that Wisconsin taxpayers paid $138,200 for his February trip to Great Britain — a trade mission laden with political overtones from his likely 2016 presidential bid.

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corp., which organized the six-day trip to England, laid out the costs in response to a request from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, doing so a day before another taxpayer-funded, weeklong European trip that Walker is taking as he seeks to boost his foreign policy credentials.

A standard dejection in the IRS help line

Andrew Concha came out into the hall holding a purple sign. He checked his watch — 11:04 a.m. — then calculated how many people could be seen before the Taxpayer Assistance Center closed at 4:30 p.m. He placed the sign behind the 17th customer, signaling to the other 30 or so in line that their chance of seeing a specialist that day was slim.

“I’m not technically turning them away yet,” Concha explained. “I’m letting them know it may not be in their interest to wait three to four hours to see someone.”

With Tax Day approaching, it was the best the IRS could offer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Taxes are obfuscated and confusing to conceal the special exemptions for the rich, and to distract people from wondering if in fact a direct non-apportioned tax on the people is even legal to begin with.

The IRS and Congress Both Hold Our Liberty in Contempt

This week the Justice Department announced it would not charge former Internal Revenue Service (IRS) official Lois Lerner with contempt of Congress. Some members of Congress requested that Lerner be charged with contempt after she refused to testify at a congressional hearing investigating her role in denying or delaying the applications for tax-exempt status of "tea party" and pro-limited government organizations.

Tories plan to cut tax for millionaires further - while average families are £1,100 worse off

George Osborne’s tax giveaway for millionaires has saved them an astonishing £85,000 each – while the average family has been left £1,100 a year worse off.

The out-of-touch Chancellor’s ­decision to slash the top rate of tax from 50p to 45p since 2013 means high-rollers on seven-figure salaries have seen their take-home pay swell.

But Labour analysis of figures from the HMRC shows changes in a series of areas since 2010 mean the average household in Britain is now almost £100 worse off every month.

A Minute with Federal Counsel in Meyer v. U.S. Bank. Bankruptcy/Foreclosure Appeal

Friday, April 3, 2015

A KingCast/Mortgage Movies Minute with Federal Counsel in Meyer v. U.S. Bank.

U.S. Bank et al. got smacked in the Bankruptcy Court and now appeals. Plaintiff/Appellee Attorney Richard Jones asks "If I provide documents to this Court which contained material misrepresentations, would this Court let me off the hook?"

Judge Martinez:
"At what point does the Magistrate have an affirmative duty to investigate the veracity of these documents that are put before it?"

Richard Jones, Esq.:"Under the Deed of Trust Act strict compliance is required. Substantial compliance is insufficient. The problem Judge Overstreet was facing is NWTS did not even have procedure to investigate. That is material and goes to the Public Impact -- they were flying blind" (as admitted by Jeff Stenman -- see Ha Dao Jeff Stenman videos at Affordable Video Depo).

Judge Martinez:

More Unofficial Capital Controls: PFIC Rules

By Nick Giambruno, Senior Editor
Casey Research

It ranks at the very top of potential tax nightmares, especially if you invest internationally.

This nightmare could become a reality if you happen to invest in what the IRS deems a Passive Foreign Investment Company (PFIC), which are taxed at exorbitant rates and have highly complex reporting rules. Most foreign mutual funds are PFICs, as are certain foreign stocks.

It’s not illegal to invest in a PFIC, but practically speaking, the costs of doing it are so incredibly onerous that it’s prohibitively expensive in the vast majority of cases.

PFIC rules amount to unofficial restrictions on investing in certain foreign assets and are yet another indicator of the disturbing trend of creeping capital controls in the US...

Ex-IRS ethics office lawyer disbarred for … ethics violations

A lawyer who worked in the IRS ethics office was disbarred Thursday by the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, which concluded she misappropriated a client’s funds from a case she handled in private practice, broke a number of ethics rules and showed “reckless disregard for the truth” in misleading a disbarment panel looking into the matter.
