Florida Court Strikes Down Front-Yard Edible Gardens for Miami Shores

By Jason Erickson

Apparently the right to feed yourself and your family is indeed not a fundamental one, as a Florida attorney previously declared.

A longstanding battle between 17-year homeowners at the Village of Miami Shores, Tom Carroll and Hermine Ricketts, appears to have reached its sad conclusion...

The Whiskey Rebellion: How Brand New America Tore Up The Bill of Rights

223 years ago today, “The Dreadful Night” occurred in Western Pennsylvania, after an uprising called The Whiskey Rebellion.

The United States was brand new. Soldiers who had fought for independence from Great Britain found themselves on opposite sides of a skirmish. Some were having their rights violated practically before the ink was dry on the Bill of Rights. Other Veterans of the Revolution were doing the oppressing at Alexander Hamilton’s behest.

The Whiskey Rebellion saw farmers stand up to an unfair tax handed down by the federal government, and the government responded with the force of a monarchy. It may have all sprung from Alexander Hamilton’s desire for glory. Or Hamilton, the first Secretary of Treasury, may have had other motives for setting the precedent of force which still lives on today.

You Won’t Believe Who John Mccain Is Working With To Betray Trump

After John McCain single handedly killed two attempts to repeal and replace Obamacare, Republican leaders quickly realized they needed to pass tax reform to inspire the GOP base ahead of the 2018 midterms.

In the wake of the Democrat sweep in Virginia – where conservative voters stayed home because Congressional Republicans spent more time investigating Trump than helping him pass his agenda – leadership ramped up the urgency behind passing tax cuts.

Senate Republicans can only afford to lose two votes or else any effort to evade a Democrat filibuster will fail.

So it was only natural that McCain schemed to kill the bill by pronouncing it “dead on arrival.”

The House GOP’s Tax Plan Embraces Class Warfare

***
Instead of following through with the promise of taking seven brackets and simplifying them to three, Speaker Ryan and Chairman Brady added in a fourth bracket exclusively for millionaires,” complains David McIntosh, president of the pro-market Club for Growth (a group I’ve addressed numerous times). This complex foolishness imposes an effective marginal tax rate of 45.6 percent on single filers who earn $1 million to $1.2 million and couples who make between $1.2 and $1.6 million. “That’s a real tax increase on successful people who invest and create jobs,” McIntosh lamented. Shamefully, this would be 15.15 percent, or six percentage points, above today’s 39.6 percent top rate.

Wall Street tax break once blasted by Trump preserved in Republican bill

As a candidate, U.S. President Donald Trump promised to close the "carried interest" tax break that benefits some of Wall Street's wealthiest financiers - but the Republican tax bill released on Thursday makes no mention of it.

Carried interest is a share of an investment fund's profits - typically about 20 percent beyond the return guaranteed to investors - that is paid out to the general partners of private equity, venture capital, real estate and hedge funds.

Under current law, carried interest income is taxed at the capital gains rate of 20 percent. That is well below the 39.6 percent rate that high earners pay on ordinary wages and salary.

Trump Asks Congress For Another $5.9 Billion For Military, Citing North Korea

In the course of his tour of the Pacific, President Trump is talking up more US deployments in the region, and is asking Congress to tack another $5.9 billion in spending to the already record military budget for 2018.

This money is going to include $4 billion for even more missile defense systems on the Korean Peninsula. These appear to be additional THAAD anti-missile systems above and beyond the ones already announced.

Another $700 million of the request is for repairs to a pair of ships, the USS John S. McCain and the USS Fitzgerald,which is the past year both crashed

The $1.2 billion remaining may be the most informative, as President trump is seeking that to pay for 3,500 more ground troops in Afghanistan

Foreign aid madness: Fury over 'cover-up' of how taxpayers' money is spent

Guidance dictating the way billions of pounds of taxpayers’ cash is sent abroad remain confidential despite them drawn up to demonstrate "value for money".

The farce has seen the Treasury and Department for International Development [DFID] devise a plan for the way cash is dished detailing governance, approval processes and financial management to ensure money is not frittered away.

But auditors revealed the powerful departments “do not plan to publish their guidance”, despite it containing “guiding principles” about how public money is used.

It means taxpayers remain unaware how their money props up hundreds of schemes funded by Official Development Assistance, which last year saw the UK hand out £13.3 billion.

THINGS COULDN’T BE BETTER – RIGHT?

The cognitive dissonance is strong, as average Americans want to believe what their “leaders” are telling them to believe, but their personal financial situation contradicts the narrative. Even using the highly manipulated data peddled by the BLS, any critical thinking individual can see through the lies, misinformation and bullshit.

"This Is Absolutely Crazy": Obamacare Signups Start As Americans Increasingly Balk At Surging Premiums

After years of surging premiums and deductibles, will 2018 finally be the year that America's middle class throws in the towel and brings the whole scheme crashing down?

While we won't know the answer to that question for at least a couple of months, one thing is certain...if it happens it will most definitely be the result of the Trump administration's efforts to undermine the legislation and not the culmination of years of soaring costs that has rendered healthcare unaffordable for most American families. Well, at least that's the The Wall Street Journal's assessment of the situation:

Breaking: IRS Admits To Specifically Targeting Tea Party Conservatives – Obama Was Going After His Political Enemies

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) has won a years-long legal battle against the Internal Revenue Service in which the agency admitted that it wrongfully targeted Tea Party conservatives, during the Obama Administration, specifically because of their political viewpoints.

In issuing an “apology” to the clients represented by the ACLJ, the IRS admitted that it was wrong to use the United States tax code simply because of an entity’s name. They also admitted the bombshell fact that this discrimination happened specifically because of the applicants political viewpoints. Keep in mind the fact that the mainstream media has spent years telling the American people that this didn’t happen.

President Trump Names IRS Commissioner to Replace John Koskinen

It’s no secret that the IRS targeted conservatives during the Obama Administration – and they got away with it too, for the most part.

Former IRS unit director Lois Lerner was initially the central figure in the scandal, infamously pleading the fifth when summoned to testify. Obama’s Justice Department and FBI would conveniently later find “substantial evidence of mismanagement, poor judgment and institutional inertia” but “find no evidence that any IRS official acted based on political, discriminatory, corrupt, or other inappropriate motives that would support a criminal prosecution.”

It was just a coincidence that Lerner granted only ONE conservative group non-profit status in three years? Sure.

The IRS also fired people in connection with the scandal for unethical and even criminal actions, but didn’t have much trouble quickly rehiring 213 of them.

London Introduces Carbon “T-Charge” Tax On Diesel and Older Petrol Vehicles

By Aaron Kesel

As part of the plan to begin phasing out gas and diesel car sales over the next three decades, drivers of diesel vehicles and older petrol cars in the UK will now face a tax called T-Charge for driving into the financial district and parts of west London, Reuters reported.

Drivers are already charged 11.50 pounds ($15) under a congestion charge. But those driving petrol and diesel vehicles typically before 2006 will now need to pay an additional 10 pounds ($13.19). That means if you have an older vehicle before 2006 or a diesel vehicle you will be paying a total of 21.50 pounds or ($28.19) just to get into the city...

Kansas Teacher Barred from Employment for Supporting BDS

Barring longtime math teacher Esther Koontz from renewing her teaching contract, solely for her political beliefs, is a flagrant First Amendment violation.

She righteously supports BDS activism, wanting Israel held accountable for its high crimes against Palestinians.

Kansas House Bill 2409 prohibits state contracts with individuals critical of Israel’s agenda. In NAACP v. Claiborne Hardware Co. (1982), the Supreme Court unanimously ruled for the plaintiff against state authorities, cracking down on boycotts of white businesses, saying authority over economic relations doesn’t limit or deny political speech.

Koontz is a member of the Mennonite Church USA. In July, it voted to divest from US companies, profiting from Israel’s illegal occupation.

She supports Palestinian rights. Her employment papers require a declaration in writing of no support for BDS. She declined and was denied the right to train

Schwab Family - CASA Worker Confirms Lies and Deception by Kansas

Kansas is one corrupt state and run by OZ NAZI's IMHO!

Audio from February 2017 provides shocking but not unexpected proof that the State of Kansas has targeted Raymond and Amellia Schwab. (Clips from the 90 minute audio are included - the entire audio is available on YouTube). The worker describes malfeasance by Kansas and the financial beneficiary of child stealing - a commercial entity known as KVC.

The Schwab children were taken by the Kansas Department of Children and Families three years ago while the children were with their maternal grandmother and the parents were moving the family to Colorado. Raymond Schwab, a veteran of the U.S. Navy who was then working for the Department of Veterans Affairs had been transferred from that agency’s Topeka facility to Colorado. Schwab, who suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and was deemed 50% disabled by the government, had been recommended medical cannabis by a licensed Colorado physician.
