WSJ: Elizabeth Warren’s Plan Would Bring Tax Rates Over 150% For Some

Presidential hopeful proposes wealth tax and levy on unrealized gains, a combination that could alter investing.

Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has unveiled sweeping tax proposals that would push federal tax rates on some billionaires and multimillionaires above 100%.

That prospect raises questions for taxpayers and the broader economy that experts are starting to ponder: Under which circumstances would taxpayers have to pay those rates? How might that change their behavior? And would investment and economic growth suffer?

When Money Is The Problem

By Biblicism Institute

What made America great was the fact that the average joe could work hard and provide for his family.

It was called the American Dream. But somewhere along the way something went wrong, and the dream became a nightmare.

WHAT WENT WRONG

The biggest culprit in the death of the American Dream is the US Federal Government.

In general, when a government stays put and does not infringe on the personal and financial lives of its people, one can almost bet that things will remain pretty stable.

IRS Sent $46,378,040 in Refunds to 23,994 ‘Unauthorized’ Aliens at 1 Atlanta Address

The Internal Revenue Service sent 23,994 tax refunds worth a combined $46,378,040 to “unauthorized” alien workers who all used the same address in Atlanta, Ga., in 2011, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).

That was not the only Atlanta address theoretically used by thousands of “unauthorized” alien workers receiving millions in federal tax refunds in 2011. In fact, according to a TIGTA audit report published last year, four of the top ten addresses to which the IRS sent thousands of tax refunds to “unauthorized” aliens were in Atlanta.

Full Scale F-35 Production Further Delayed: Fighter Suffers More Breakdowns Than Expected - Pentagon

The F-35 fifth generation single engine fighter has faced further delays in its entry into frontline service after the Pentagon denied Lockheed Martin permission to begin full scale production of the jet. While the F-35A and B variants entered service in 2015 and 2014 respectively, they are considered far from fully combat ready with several bugs in the design having yet to be fixed among other major issues. The Pentagon’s leading weapons tester Robert Behler noted that the F-35 was still far from fully combat ready, particularly highlighting the fact that all variants of the platform suffered from low reliability and were prone to breakdowns more often than previously anticipated.

Reasons Marijuana Legalization Seems To Be Failing

When it was first proposed, the concept of marijuana legalization seemed solid enough. Take the world’s most popular illicit substance, establish a taxed and regulated marketplace and watch all of the evil associated with the herb – the criminal activity, the youth consumption –fade away into a footnote of American history. And by all accounts, it was a plan that should have worked. After all, we weren’t dealing with a new idea or anything.

A 'Red Army of Mediocrities': Our Soviet-Style University System

In an April 15 Boston Globe article entitled “A Message to All Professional Thinkers: We Either Hang Together or We Hang Separately,” historian Niall Ferguson described the now-routine “outing” of conservative professors at American Universities by the hard-Left Marxists who control most of them. The usual procedure is to first lie about something the conservative (or libertarian) supposedly said to whip a “Twitter mob” into a hateful frenzy. The local media then pick up on it and pile on.

New York City Secretly Shipping Homeless People to Over 350 Cities Including Honolulu, Houston

New York City officials have been quietly dumping homeless people to more than 370 cities across 32 states, including Honolulu and Houston.

Under Mayor Bill de Blasio’s “Special One-Time Assistance Program,” (SOTA) local homeless families are given a full year’s worth of rent – which has cost NYC taxpayers $89 million on rent alone since August 2017 – before exporting some 5,074 homeless families (12,482 individuals) to cities as far as the South Pacific, according to the New York Post, citing data from the Department of Homeless Services (DHS).

The End of Accountable Government Is Close at Hand

For about 70 years the CIA has been undermining a free press. It began with Operation Mockingbird, a Cold War operation against communism. The CIA recruited journalists into a propaganda network. The CIA paid journalists to write fake stories or to publish stories written by the CIA in order to control explanations that served the agency’s agendas. Student and cultural organizations and intellectual magazines, such as Encounter, were suborned into the CIA’s propaganda network. Thanks to the German journalist, Udo Ulfkotte, we know that every European journalist of any significance is a CIA asset.

The Social Decay That We See All Around Us Is Absolutely Breathtaking

Throughout human history we have seen great nations rise and fall, and for many of them it was not actually an external threat that took them down. When the social decay inside a society gets bad enough, it is just a matter of time before that society falls apart. That is why what is happening to the United States is so deeply troubling. Everywhere around us there is evidence that the social order in this country is rotting. At one time we were the most respected nation on the entire planet, but now we have become the laughingstock of the world. And instead of setting a good example for the rest of us, our leaders are some of the greatest examples of corruption and filth.

The American Economy RIP

Paul Craig Roberts

“Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws.” —Mayer Anselm Rothschild, 1790

Thirty-eight years ago when I was in charge of United States domestic economic policy, the US Treasury and President Reagan believed that the purpose of economic policy was to serve the country, not Wall Street and the banks or the corporations or any of the various organized interest groups. Our idea was that policy could not be for this or that part of the economy. It had to be for everyone.

This changed in the last year of the Reagan administration after I was gone. In America today truth gets no respect from anyone whether right, left, liberal, conservative, Democrat, Republican. The idiot Hillary has alleged that the only sane Democrat—Tulsi Gabbard— is a Russian agent! It blows the mind. And the presstitutes treat the absurd allegation as if it is a fact.

Beto O'Rourke Announces Support for Menstrual Equity Act on National Period Day

OH! Gross! What a Mangina!
We are the laughing stock of the World!

Not to be outdone by Cory Booker's "women are people" moment in the last debate, Beto O'Rourke decided to virtue signal his pro-woman accolades on Saturday by tweeting that "women across America don’t have access to the period products they need," and since it is #National Period Day (who knew that was a thing?), that "men need to join women in demanding real change." Beto wants "real change" and identifies as a man for the moment (at least until he needs a Hail Mary for his campaign) and he's announced his support for the Menstrual Equity Act.

Father of black woman shot and killed in her own home by a white cop says 'unlike Botham Jean, I don’t want no hug' as family brands her death 'MURDER'

This cop should be indicted,tried,convicted and sentenced to life without parole. His home and assets should be confiscated and his family thrown out onto the streets. The Fort Worth PD needs to be investigated for the plethora of officer involved shootings along with the DA's office.

The father of the black 28-year-old aspiring doctor who was shot and killed by a police officer inside her own home early Saturday morning says her death was 'senseless'.

Marquis Jefferson said that his mother called him Saturday morning to tell him that his only daughter, Atatiana Jefferson, had been shot dead by a Fort Worth officer performing a welfare check at her home at around 2.30am.

The Federal Reserve Cartel: The Eight Families

The Four Horsemen of Banking (Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo) own the Four Horsemen of Oil (Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch/Shell, BP and Chevron Texaco); in tandem with Deutsche Bank, BNP, Barclays and other European old money behemoths. But their monopoly over the global economy does not end at the edge of the oil patch.

According to company 10K filings to the SEC, the Four Horsemen of Banking are among the top ten stock holders of virtually every Fortune 500 corporation.[1]

So who then are the stockholders in these money center banks?J. W. McCallister, an oil industry insider with House of Saud connections, wrote in The Grim Reaper that information he acquired from Saudi bankers cited 80% ownership of the New York Federal Reserve Bank- by far the most powerful Fed branch- by just eight families, four of which reside in the US. They are........

The collapse will be LOCAL: Former military intelligence, special forces veterans explain why your proximity to left-wing cities may determine your fate

(Natural News) With all the talk about the risk for civil war in America — and the new Nancy Pelosi push for impeachment that will drive America into more conflict — it’s crucial to realize how your proximity to left-wing population density hubs will largely determine your fate.

Here’s what I learned, in the aggregate, from multiple sources, many of whom have operated inside collapsing, war-torn cities and countries:

There won’t be a nationwide kinetic civil war fought like America’s first Civil War. Instead, outbreaks of kinetic violence will be very limited to the areas in and around high-density population centers dominated by Leftists (i.e. Antifa and similar left-wing lunatics).
This means your proximity to left-wing cities largely determines your risk of being caught up in any kind of kinetic engagement. The closer you are to the “zombies,” the worse off you’ll be when it hits the fan.

At UN Session, US Empire in Decline and Global Solidarity on the Rise

The US Military is a Great Threat to our Future

It also leaves behind toxic pollution from burn pits and weapons such as depleted uranium (DU). The use of DU violates international law, including the Biological Weapons Convention. As described in David Swanson’s article about a new study, which documents the horrific impact of DU on newborns in Iraq,

“…every round of DU ammunition leaves a residue of DU dust on everything it hits, contaminating the surrounding area with toxic waste that has a half-life of 4.5 billion years, the age of our solar system, and turns every battlefield and firing range into a toxic waste site that poisons everyone in such areas.”

The Bolsheviks even want to tax your toaster oven…

Now they want to create a similar federal tax that applies to almost every major asset you own.

This includes CASH in your bank account. Financial assets like stocks and bonds. Private business and partnership interests. Your entire real estate portfolio. Collectible assets like art and fine wine.

Never mind that you’ve bought these assets with money that’s already been taxed. Now they want to tax it again, every year. And when you die they want to tax it again.

They even included Individual Retirement Accounts.

Hell, for that matter they even proposed taxing “household goods” beyond a certain threshold. So you could even pay tax on your toaster oven.

Trump promises 'substantial' middle-class tax cut in Baltimore speech to GOP lawmakers

"We are working on a tax cut for the middle-income people that is going to be very, very inspirational," the president told House Republicans at their annual retreat in Baltimore. "It's going to be something that -- I think it's what everyone's really looking for."

Thursday's visit marked Trump's first trip to Baltimore since insulting the city in a series of July tweets, calling it as a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess." Protesters gathered outside the Marriott hotel on the Baltimore waterfront with a giant inflatable rat adorned with yellow hair and a red tie in tow. Demonstrators held signs that read “Welcome rat king” and “Trump and the GOP are the real rats.”

Taxpayers Pay $2.4m After Cops Kill Unarmed Father on Video Laying Down In His Own Backyard

By Matt Agorist

Sacramento, CA – As TFTP reported, last year, disturbing body camera footage was released from a police shooting that took the life of a father who was confronted in his grandparents’ backyard and then gunned down because officers claimed his phone was a gun. Now, after Sacramento Police Department officers Terrance Mercadal and Jared Robinet escaped any and all accountability, the taxpayers are held liable instead.

According to ABC 10, the city of Sacramento agreed to pay Clark’s two sons and their attorneys a total sum of $2.4 million, court documents show. Each child will get $893,113 after attorney’s fees...

Why Portugal’s Tax-Free Crypto Trading Matters for Bitcoin

By Lubomir Tassev

Cryptocurrency enthusiasts and businesses in the industry have had to put up with regulatory uncertainty for quite some time. The strong desire to tap into their incomes and profits goes hand in hand with failure on behalf of authorities and regulators to fully understand the nature of decentralized digital assets. Not to mention how absurd the reluctance to legalize something they want to tax anyway. Cases in Portugal show that it’s hard to positively know what exactly traders, investors and companies owe the state. Luckily, the narrow scope of the local tax legislation means they have to pay less than in other countries...

Manhattan Luxury-Apartment Sales Plunge After New Transfer Tax

However, with intervention, there are always consequences, those consequences are being seen with a drastic drop in sales in July and the months ahead...

Remote Work: The Right Response to a Labor Market Made Complex by Government

By Chloe Anagnos

Remote work has quickly become an alternative to millennials making a living off the gig economy, thanks in part to the growth of websites like Fiverr and the big-data revolution. But as the practice became more popular and companies noticed they could actually benefit from it, many began to either send their employees home or to simply rely more on freelance workers doing most of what they were hired to do from home.

But despite the growing reliance companies have on remote employees and freelancers, not all workers are given the freedom to dictate their own scheduling rules. That created a split in the sector, giving researchers a chance to identify which group was the most productive...

Kids Ordered to Pay Sales Tax at Children’s Expo Receive a Sad Lesson in Entrepreneurship

By Brittany Hunter

Twelve-year-old Lucie Wise couldn’t wait to open her own business. On three separate occasions, she had accompanied her mother to the Children’s Entrepreneur Market—an expo of child-run businesses hosted annually by the Utah nonprofit Libertas Institute—dreaming of the day she could set up her own booth and sell her wares to curious passersby.

Like Lucie, many children are coming up with original ideas for products and services, bringing them to life, paying for booth space, and trying their luck in the marketplace. While the Children’s Market is intended to teach children to love entrepreneurship, one thing it isn’t supposed to do is crush their spirit with the harsh realities of government overreach.

But are they exempt from taxes?...

The Hidden Costs Behind Every Government Program

By Gor Mkrtchian

When the State constructs a new bike lane, school, or begins a new space mission, the natural inclination of the majority is to cheer this new endeavor as progressive. We possess one new structure or have accomplished one new task than before; society has moved forward, the thinking goes.

The State is responsible for truly technically impressive or beautiful accomplishments like the Apollo missions, the Moscow Metro, the Palace of Versailles, etc. that most would agree clearly produce benefits for society.

Confronted with these concrete and widely celebrated examples of government accomplishments, how can libertarians deny that state action is sometimes a benevolent force in society?...

American Apocalypse: The Government’s Plot to Destabilize the Nation Is Working

“The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out … without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable.” — H. L. Mencken

The U.S. government is working hard to destabilize the nation.

No, this is not another conspiracy theory.

Although it is certainly not far-fetched to suggest that the government might be engaged in nefarious activities that run counter to the best interests of the American people, doing so will likely brand me a domestic terrorist under the FBI’s new classification system.

Observe for yourself what is happening right before our eyes.

Over-Taxed: The Middle Class Is Being Wiped Out, NJ Residents Flee In Droves

New Jersey residents are fleeing their state in droves thanks to the over taxation and immense financial burden placed on them by their socialist state government. In addition to the already sky-high federal tax that we are all forced to pay, those in New Jersey are struggling to make enough money to live after the state also steals a cut of their income.

The SALT (state and local tax) cap has hit high-tax states like New York, California, and New Jersey particularly hard because these states steal a higher portion of an individual’s income. As a result, affected residents have begun to move to other states – a trend that experts expect to accelerate, according to Fox Business.
