The Democrats’ $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill would break President Joe Biden’s pledge not to increase taxes on working-class Americans. The Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) found that the House Ways and Means Committee’s portion of the $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill would increase taxes on Americans making over $50,000 or more per year in the calendar year 2031, according to a Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) report. The JCT’s analysis of the infrastructure bill would serve as a significant break from Biden’s promise not to raise taxes on Americans making less than $400,000 per year. “The President remains committed to his pledge from the campaign

"Read my lips, no tax increase!" Didn't we hear that before? Oh yes! President Bush #1 and got kicked off after the 1st term when he raised the tax.

Actually he's already raised taxes even on those making LESS than 50K. Have you bought gas lately? How about steak? Looked closely at your electric bill? By raising taxes on businesses, they are passing ALL those increases on to everyone in the form of increased cost of goods and services for pretty much everything. Inflation is another name for increased taxes on everyone. "Tax the rich"? Hahahahahaha. Idiots.

I make less than 50,000 a year and even though they say my taxes will not go up, I don't believe them. As it is the cost of gas and groceries is WAY up. I'll take mean tweets, no wars and a lower cost of living any day of the week.

Dolllar Bill Clinton came into office in 1993 with the promise to raise income taxes only on the wealthy. Then his people included the rental value of your home, if you owned it, to jack up your income on paper, to justify the proposed tax increase on the middle class. Some things never change.

You can trust Democrats to be Democrats. You think eventually people will "realize." But they won't. They will be hypnotized to think this is wonderful. What we need to do is break the stranglehold of the propaganda. So far it's only getting worse.

He can't raise taxes. Congress does and he signs off on it. So higher taxes for the lower middle class on up. Will glorious leaders pay their fair share or will they exempt themselves?

There is a LONG time between the Democrats’ false promises and the “next election.” American voters have a notoriously poor memory and they are easily distracted (RussiaGate, COVID). Democrats have plenty of time to use their propaganda, and make threats to cut off free stuff which they allow people to become dependent upon. And besides obvious taxation, they rely on inflation as a hidden tax to avoid seemingly appearing tax-hungry. They have put America on the road to destruction because they care only about their power to control.

Though the effort to relieve California Dictator Gov. Gavin Newsom of his duties a little early did not go the way recall proponents wanted it to, all hope is not lost on the electoral front for Republicans because though Newsom will remain in office at least until the 2022 gubernatorial election, there are warning signs among the results from the recall (which are still coming in) that do no bode well for Democrats in the state and nationally going into the 2022 midterms. Longtime polling analyst Dave Wasserman looked at the tea leaves among the incoming numbers for various competitive House districts in the state, and said

Customers and employees at bars, wineries, breweries, nightclubs and lounges will have to have at least one vaccine dose by Oct. 7 and both doses by Nov. 4.

Los Angeles County supervisors voted unanimously Wednesday to phase out oil and gas drilling and ban new drill sites in the unincorporated areas of the nation’s most populous county. Over 1,600 active and idle oil and gas wells in the county could be shuttered after the 5-0 vote by the board of supervisors. A timetable for the phaseout will be decided after the county determines the fastest way to legally shut down the wells. Among the sites is the Inglewood Oil Field, one of the largest U.S. urban oil fields. The sprawling, 1,000-acre (405-hectare) site, owned and operated by Sentinel Peak Resources, contains over half

The US, UK and Australia are setting up a trilateral security partnership aimed at confronting China, which will include helping Australia to build nuclear-powered submarines. The initiative, called Aukus, was announced jointly by President Joe Biden and prime ministers Boris Johnson and Scott Morrison, joined virtually by videoconference. They presented it as the next critical step in an old alliance. Morrison said teams from the three countries would draw up a joint plan over the coming 18 months for assembling the new Australian nuclear-powered submarine fleet, which will be built in Adelaide. The project will make Australia only the seventh country in the world to have submarines propelled by nuclear reactors.

When he was elected, Joe Biden was seen as a seasoned professional politician, someone who knew Washington, knew how government worked, and knew Congress well enough to break the logjam on the Hill and get things done. At least, that’s how Biden was sold to the American public. Not surprisingly, that’s not the way things have worked out. Biden has made a bunch of rookie mistakes — unforced errors on the economy, Afghanistan, and now vaccine mandates — that threaten to derail his party and presidency and bury the Democrats in a Republican landslide in 2022. Josh Kraushaar, National Journal Daily‘s Senior National Political Columnist, believes that a lack of internal dissent

Border agents encountered over 200,000 migrants attempting to cross the U.S.-Mexico border during the month of August. Agents encountered 208,887 migrants in August, the second consecutive month with over 200,000 encounters, a senior Department of Homeland Security official told Fox News on Wednesday. Agents saw 212,672 migrants in July, the first time in 21 years that encounters rose above 200,000. The number of migrants apprehended in August increased 317 percent from August 2020, when Customs and Border Protection reported 50,014 encounters, and a 233 percent increase from August 2019, when 62,707 migrants were apprehended. Of the migrants apprehended in August 2021, 18,847 were unaccompanied minors, slightly down from July.

This is from the Washington Post’s promotion of the book “Peril” by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. Twice in the final months of the Trump administration, the country’s top military officer was so fearful that the president’s actions might spark a war with China that he moved urgently to avert armed conflict.

The headline stories today are large, and so is the background as these issues surface. Context becomes increasingly important as each aspect is reviewed. As you look at the stories, remember this context (emphasized as a reminder):(snip)Factually, President Trump’s strategic approach toward foreign threats and foreign intervention (through the use of geopolitical economic pressure) was a major paradigm shift that removed the Defense Department from a primary role, and placed them back into a more appropriate ‘contingency’ role when it came to foreign policy and national security. It was obvious from the outset of the Trump administration that the Pentagon did not like that position.
