CONGRESS HANGING TRUMP AGENDA "OUT TO DRY" - RAND PAUL FURIOUS!

First of all, I blame Paul Ryan for hindering President Trump’s most valiant efforts to truly help the American people. I am speaking of Trump’s policy changes on ObamaCare and tax cuts for the American people. These things would help the American people more than anything Trump could do.
Matt Drudge took to Twitter to blast Congress for hanging the new president “out to dry” by failing to move on ObamaCare and other agenda items. Drudge included a photo of House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) in the tweets.

Our Huge Hidden Tax: Government Regulations

The fact is that cutting regulations is as critical as tax relief in turning the US economy around. The two are the holy grail to repatriate a large part of the $2.5 trillion in offshore corporate capital, stimulate domestic investment, and create jobs — all central to “making America great again.” And it’s economic growth and broadening the tax base that can — in the longer run — finance rebuilding US infrastructure and the military without adding to deficits and national debt.

Sixth Circuit Reverses IRS, Tax Court:  'Citizens Can't Comply With Tax Laws They Can’t See'

Tax attorneys advised the family to use a congressionally innovated corporation—a “domestic international sales corporation” (DISC) to be exact—to transfer money from their family-owned company to their sons’ Roth Individual Retirement Accounts. When the family did just that, the Commissioner balked. He acknowledged that the family had complied with the relevant provisions. And he acknowledged that the purpose of the relevant provisions was to lower taxes. But he reasoned that the effect of these transactions was to evade the contribution limits on Roth IRAs and applied the “substanceover-form doctrine,” Appellee’s Br. 41, to recharacterize the transactions as dividends from Summa Holdings to the Benensons followed by excess Roth IRA contributions. The Tax Court upheld the Commissioner’s determination [T.C. Memo. 2015-119].

The Solution: Making the “Voluntary” Tax System Voluntary

All of the inherent problems of taxation – the corruption, lack of accountability, waste, inefficiency of collection and spending, etc. – are rooted in the fundamental and simple fact that the government always receives however much it wants from us – regardless of whether it is spent honestly, wisely or effectively. The government – unlike individuals, companies and charities – has the unique ability to raise funds in a way that is completely unrelated to its performance.

What if that changed?

What if the government actually had to earn your money?

What if you could redirect your tax dollars whenever you saw them wasted by a government department; spent in support of a policy that does more harm than good; paid out to cronies for supporting a particular politician or campaign, or just deployed much less efficiently than by a local charity or non-profit that does a particular government job better than the government does it?

Bill Gates says robots that steal human jobs should pay taxes

If robots are going to take over human jobs, that means fewer people will be working, which in turn means fewer people will be paying taxes.

And that’s a problem, since taxes fund things that are important, like schools and roads and fire departments.

Bill Gates has idea for solving this deficit: Have the robots that take human jobs pay their share in taxes.

Put more simply, Utah may soon lead the way of putting “trust” back in God and gold, rather than in God and the Federal Reserve.

Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao: Highway Trust Fund Will Go Bankrupt By 2021 If We Don't Find New Source Of Revenue: Gas Tax Is No Longer Adequate

Elaine L. Chao was just confirmed yesterday to serve as President Trump's Transportation Secretary. Chao is married to arch-neocon Mitch McConnell and served as assistant Secretary of Transportation under George H.W. Bush, as well as Labor Secretary for 8 years under George W. Bush. On January 11, Senator Deb Fischer questioned Chao about infrastructure and how America is going to pay for all of President Trump's lofty infrastructure projects. Fischer begins by pointing out that the highway trust fund faces a $107 billion dollar shortfall over next 5 years. Chao states that it is imperative for the government to come up with an additional way to fund the highway infrastructure, because the gasoline tax is no longer cutting it.

Illinois: Anti-Gun Tax Proposed on Exercising All Second Amendment Rights

In an attempt to address the ongoing budget problem in Illinois, Sen. Hutchinson decided to tax Illinois residents’ Second Amendment rights, and by extension, their right to safety. Under SA 2, a 5% tax would be imposed on any membership or access fee for gun clubs, shooting ranges, hunt clubs, training classes and match fees. Not only is this an abhorrent tax on your Second Amendment rights, it also requires that any of those places/people to register with the state and pay an annual fee of $75 just so that they can offer their service or membership with the 5% tax added.

The Netflix Tax: Coming to a Screen Near You

Many cities across the country have found that taxes from utilities have taken a hit with the rise in the number of people who have decided to “cut the cord” from cable companies. During the second quarter of 2016 alone, over 812,000 people cancelled their paid television subscriptions and switched to various streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and SlingTV, which only require internet access.

As that telecom tax revenue continues to fall off, cities across the country are losing approximately $50 dollars (much more in larger cities) per cable subscriber in tax. Accordingly, lawmakers have discovered a brand new source of revenue in digital entertainment.

Treasury Secretary Mnuchin: Trump IRS Will Collect 100'$ of Million$$$ In Tax Revenue From Tax Evaders

The Senate hearings on Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are very revealing. Mnuchin, who previously worked for Goldman Sachs, says he's concerned and "particularly surprised that the IRS headcount has gone down quite dramatically, almost 30% over the last number of years" amd vows to remedy that problem. In the second video, Munchin says he wants private IRS debt collectors to be more effective. "We can collect tens of millions, or hundreds of millions of dollars, for the American public...particularly in an environment where we are looking for money for so many programs, this to me, seems like a very obvious thing to do." He continues "the majority of Americans voluntarily file their tax returns honestly. But we are all aware that there is tax fraud, and there is tax evasion, and we need to be diligent.

Healthcare Chaos Emerges After Trump Backtracks, Demands Immediate Repeal Of "Catastrophic" Obamacare

Perhaps as a result an angry backlash to last night's report by the WSJ that President-elect Donald Trump had allegedly sided with Rand Paul in pushing to delay the repeal of Obamacare until such time as there is a suitable replacement option, which as we explained are two entirely distinct processes, and that an ACA replacement could take years as it would require bipartisan support, moments ago the the NYT reported that Trump appears to have backtracked on his position as recently as yesterday, and has pressed Republicans to move forward with the "immediate repeal" of the Affordable Care Act and to replace it very quickly thereafter, saying, “We have to get to business. Obamacare has been a catastrophic event.”

Masses Shocked By Philly Beverage Tax Impact

Chuck Andrews picked up a $1.77 gallon jug of tea, got home and looked at his receipt.

“When I read the receipt I’m like, ‘Wait a minute. I paid more in tax than I did for the product,'” Andrews said.

The tax on the $1.77 gallon of tea was $1.92 cents.

“Which is OK if you had told me,” he said.

Andrews’ point is he would rather have the full cost, the product and the tax inclusive, posted on the main shelf tag.

Breaking: Senate Republicans Pass Resolution That Begins Obamacare Repeal Process

At 1:13 PM EST the U.S. Senate passed a budget resolution that will begin the process of repealing Obamacare. The final vote tally was 51-48. The resolution instructs the House to have a repeal bill ready by January 27.

Seven years ago, on December 24, 2009, the Senate voted 60-39 to pass Obamacare. All Republicans voted against it, all Democrats voted for it.

"Today, we take the first steps to repair the nation's broken health care system, removing Washington from the equation and putting control back where it belongs: with patients, their families, and their doctors," Republican Senator Mike Enzi of Wyoming, chairman of the Senate Budget Committee who sponsored the legislation, said in a statement.

EPA To Alaskans In Sub-Zero Temps: Stop Burning Wood To Keep Warm

WTF!
In Alaska’s interior, where it can reach -50 degrees Fahrenheit in winter, the EPA wants people to stop burning wood. But it's just about their only feasible way to stay warm.
By John Daniel Davidson

In Jack London’s famous short story, “To Build A Fire,” a man freezes to death because he underestimates the cold in America’s far north and cannot build a proper fire. The unnamed man—a chechaquo, what Alaska natives call newcomers—is accompanied by a wolf-dog that knows the danger of the cold and is wholly indifferent to the fate of the man. “This man did not know cold. Possibly, all the generations of his ancestry had been ignorant of cold, of real cold, of cold 107 degrees below freezing point. But the dog knew; all its ancestry knew, and it had inherited the knowledge.”

Coming next in ObamaCare: Insurance rationing?

For Minnesotans, coming next is meant literally. In order to keep insurers from fleeing the Mnsure ObamaCare exchange, Commerce Commissioner Mark Rothman and Governor Mark Dayton had to agree to massive rate increases across the board, which have garnered most of the headlines and discussion in this state and around the nation. Another less-discussed concession, though, might have even worse portents for the unaffordable Affordable Care Act. Rothman and Dayton have allowed insurers to cap enrollments in order to limit their losses — an act of rationing that may set precedent for negotiations in other states.

To Tax Is to Destroy

Pleading the case on behalf of McCulloch, the eminent jurist Daniel Webster argued that Maryland had no authority to tax the bank. The essence of his argument was quite simple: "An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, a power to destroy."

The court agreed. Speaking for a unanimous court, Chief Justice John Marshall echoed Webster's words. He wrote, "The power to tax implies the power to destroy. If the States may tax one instrument, may they not tax every other instrument…? This was not intended by the American people."

Consequently, with the help of these two highly esteemed jurists, we have conclusively settled a point of contention among many scholars — that the unlimited power to tax is the power to destroy, clear and simple. And without question, the government has an unlimited power in this respect.

Let us now examine some of the many ways in which the power to tax destroys.

President-elect Donald Trump hasn't yet announced the members of his cabinet but a brief statement issued Thursday could be an indication Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions is headed to the Justice Department.

Sessions, the first Senator to endorse the business-mogul-turned-politician, met with Trump at his New York office yesterday.
The Trump transition team – lead by Vice President-elect Mike Pence and with Sessions as a vice-chair – issued a statement about the meeting:

A LETTER TO THE US FROM JOHN CLEESE

Another lib who has lost it. He just pissed off at least half the country.
You didn't give us our Independence John Cleese. We killed thousands of your Lobsterback Redcoats to get it.

To the citizens of the United States of America, in light of your failure to elect a competent President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective today.

Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II resumes monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths and other territories. Except Utah, which she does not fancy.

Obama Rushes to Implement Climate Treaty Without Congress and Before Trump Can Cancel It

By Eric Blair

The Obama Administration is rushing to implement a global treaty on climate change without a vote in Congress and before Trump can “cancel” the agreement.

Put another way, US will be under global governance without input from the people’s elected representatives. Those protesting the prospect of “fascism” might want to pay attention to this story...

Mayor, police chief urge Portlanders to avoid anti-Trump protests (live updates)

This guy is an idiot and a very weak man IMHO!

Portland Mayor Charlie Hales and police Chief Mike Marshman urged Portlanders to stay home instead of joining anti-Trump protests, saying they had been hijacked by people promoting violence.

Marshman said officers were locked in a "battle" with elements of the crowd. He said police had been targets of thrown rocks and fireworks, though no officers had been injured by protesters.

He also characterized Saturday's early-morning shooting of a protester on the Morrison Bridge as the type of incident police are trying to avoid.

Hales said residents should continue to patronize Portland businesses. He also urged Portlanders frustrated with the results of Tuesday's election to channel that feeling into support of liberal causes.

CIVIL WAR II – FOURTH TURNING INTENSIFYING (PART I)

As we enter the final stretch of this vitriolic, deplorable, venomous, propaganda saturated, deceitful, rigged presidential election spectacle, it becomes painfully obvious this Fourth Turning is careening toward bloodshed, bedlam, confrontation, and civil war. The linear fixated establishment, who fancy themselves intellectually superior to the irredemables, are too blinded by their sociopathic, increasingly audacious subversion of the Constitution, to grasp the level of rage and disillusionment of a white working class that has been screwed over for decades.

OBAMACARE “NEAR COLLAPSE” IN MINNESOTA AS PRICES JUMP 60% AVERAGE

Minnesota will let the health insurers in its Obamacare market raise rates by at least 50 percent next year, after the individual market there came to the brink of collapse, the state’s commerce commissioner said Friday.

The increases range from 50 percent to 67 percent, Commissioner Mike Rothman’s office said in a statement. Rothman, who regulates the state’s insurers, is an appointee under Governor Mark Dayton, a Democrat. The rate hike follows increases for this year of 14 percent to 49 percent.

“It’s in an emergency situation — we worked hard and avoided a collapse.” Rothman said in a telephone interview. “It’s a stopgap for 2017.”

Hillary Clinton’s Wall Street Fundraising Benefited From Loophole In Federal Anti-Corruption Rule

‘Particularly Vulnerable To Pay To Play Practices’

Despite an anti-corruption rule that was designed to reduce the financial industry’s political power, top officials from the investment firm BlackRock hosted Hillary Clinton at campaign fundraisers earlier this year.

The cash — which poured in through a loophole in the law — came in as BlackRock’s federal contracts to manage billions of dollars of retiree assets will be up for renewal during the next president’s term.

Or so it sure looks anyway.

I say talons of “New York and Washington” because America’s foreign policy, forged in those two cities, belongs entirely to them. Americans have no influence on it. Further, none of of what the Empire does abroad is of any benefit to Americans.

We Now Have Proof Obamacare Was Designed to Fail... and Here's Why

The oligarchy runs our society with Problem - Reaction - Solution. If anything, these leaks have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that the two-party system is an illusion and the whole construct is one huge pay-for-play corporate sham. Obamacare was always meant to destroy the private health care system and usher in single-payer, government run socialist medicine. It was designed that way... and it's "working".

Pentagon will stop seeking repayment of California Guard bonuses

Good!
The Pentagon will halt collection efforts to recoup up to 10,000 fraudulent enlistment bonuses that were awarded to reservists with the California National Guard at the height of the Iraq War.

There was public outcry after a recent Los Angeles Times report that revealed California National Guard officials are demanding the return of bonuses that were offered to help recruit part-time troops at the height of the Iraq War when recruiting and retaining troops was a challenge.

The individual troops did not know at the time that the bonuses were fraudulent. The debt — which now includes interest accrued over the years — is causing financial hardship among some veterans, many of whom spent the money long ago and are retired.

Elite’s War on Free Speech, Free Press, Free Internet and the Truth

“A populace deprived of the ability to separate lies from truth, is no longer capable of sustaining a free society.”

Journalist Chris Hedges

As the ruling elite pushes its rigged election, forcibly cramming crime boss Hillary down our gullets against the people’s choice or will, so goes suppression of information rapidly shutting off the truth spigot, leaving Americans high and dry, starved of honesty by their oligarchic owned and controlled crime cabal government. Signs that the globalists are panicking are visible every day as they aggressively provoke World War III timed with the collapse of their morally and financially bankrupted global economy. And with two-thirds of Americans living from paycheck to paycheck, the future does not look bright.

Garcia is being held at the Denver Jail on a $350,000 bond. He has a long criminal history that includes violation of immigration laws. He is set to be back in court for a preliminary hearing early next month.

Young Americans of the millennial generation and others with college degrees need urgent relief from the $1.3 trillion in accumulated tuition debt they owe, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said at a campaign rally in Columbus, Ohio.

"We [are going to] lower the cost of college and solve the tuition debt crisis… We are going to work [it] out."

Trump vowed that if elected to be the next US president he would threaten to remove tax exemption from wealthy endowments enjoyed by many US educational institutions if colleges did not use that wealth to cut their tuition costs.

Health law 'no longer affordable,' Dayton says

Minnesota's Democratic governor said Wednesday that the Affordable Care Act is "no longer affordable," a stinging critique from a state leader who strongly embraced the law and proudly proclaimed health reform was working in Minnesota just a few years ago.

Gov. Mark Dayton made the comments while addressing questions about Minnesota's fragile health insurance market, where individual plans are facing double-digit increases after all insurers threatened to exit the market entirely in 2017. He's the only Democratic governor to publicly suggest the law isn't working as intended.

Dayton's comments follow former President Bill Clinton's saying last week that the law was "the craziest thing in the world" before he backtracked.

But it’s a story Hillary breathes more life into every day she moves closer to becoming president. The latest treasure trove of evidence: a WikiLeaks email dump chronicling her two-faced behavior in such dramatic tones that it should be required reading for anyone who thinks she has the temperament to lead this country.

California Becomes First State To Request "Waiver" To Offer Obamacare To Illegal Immigrants

Remember that time when South Carolina Representative Joe Wilson shouted "You Lie!" just after President Obama assured American's before a joint session of Congress that illegal immigrants would not be eligible for Obamacare?

Apparently California Governor Jerry Brown was not convinced by Obama's denials as he signed a bill back in June that allowed the state to apply for a federal waiver to open Covered California to illegal immigrants. And, lest you thought it was a bluff, Covered California’s Executive Director Peter Lee has just sent a letter (attached in its entirety below) to the Health and Human Services Secretary, Sylvia Burwell, requesting a waiver to "expand access to undocumented individuals."

Bernie Sanders recently outed the 10 biggest multinational corporations that paid no federal taxes for at least one year between 2008 and 2012. Sanders has made reining in corporate tax dodgers a key point of his presidential platform. In a recent press release, the Sanders campaign laid out the Vermont senator’s plans to force multinational corporations to pay their fair share in taxes:

500 IRS Employees Caught Not Paying Taxes in 2015, Only 5 Fired

Just how harshly does the IRS treat tax cheats within its own agency? Are IRS employees who don’t pay their taxes still being rewarded with bonuses and paid time off in 2016? Newly obtained documents reveal the answers: not very, and the IRS isn’t telling.

In 2015, the IRS disciplined nearly 500 of its employees for either not filing their tax returns, filing late, or understating their tax liability. However, the agency only terminated five of its workers for these offenses. The information was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by the Committee for Efficient Government (CFEG) on April 7, 2016.

The request sought data relevant to the number of employees within the agency who have been punished for irregularities with their tax returns in the last two years, as well as information pertaining to the amount of money the Treasury may still be owed as a result.

“Completely Unsustainable”: Obamacare Destroys Middle Class, Rising As Much as 67%. Just in 2017.

Minnesota is in good company.

Like dozens of other states across the country, its government-mandated health care exchange is facing steeply-rising premiums for individual plans at levels that are both outrageous and completely impossible for the average Middle Class family to pay or keep up with.

And as future rates continue to rise – and it’s going to hurt a lot of people.

Because the system was designed to fail; or, because the government and health care lobbies have so little regard for the people that will actually have to live and die by their rules, the prices are skyrocketing by more than 50% in Minnesota – and by similarly absurd numbers in other states – and the exchange narrowly avoiding collapsing altogether in 2017.

President-in-waiting Hillary Clinton has never addressed her role in the midnight pardon of billionaire fugitive Marc Rich. In fact, she’s rarely been asked her opinion on the free pass given to one of the world’s most wanted fugitives, a man who violated embargoes against Iran and South Africa and fled the country rather than face trial in what was billed as “the biggest tax evasion case in history.” Hillary has variously said that she was “unaware” of the decision and “surprised” by it. When pressed, she merely cackles.

Obama administration may use obscure fund to pay billions to ACA insurers

The Obama administration is maneuvering to pay health insurers billions of dollars the government owes under the Affordable Care Act, through a move that could circumvent Congress and help shore up the president’s signature legislative achievement before he leaves office.

Justice Department officials have privately told several health plans suing over the unpaid money that they are eager to negotiate a broad settlement, which could end up offering payments to about 175 health plans selling coverage on ACA marketplaces, according to insurance executives and lawyers familiar with the talks.

The payments most likely would draw from an obscure Treasury Department fund intended to cover federal legal claims, the executives and lawyers said. This approach would get around a recent congressional ban on the use of Health and Human Services money to pay the insurers.
