President Biden on Thursday again urged Congress to pass the $739 billion reconciliation package, vowing that it will "lower" the record-high inflation Americans are facing and cut the deficit as the U.S. grapples with a recession. "My message to Congress is this: Listen to the American people," Biden said. "This is the strongest bill you can pass to lower inflation, continue to cut the deficit, reduce health care costs, tackle a climate crisis and promote America’s energy security and reduce the burdens facing working-class and middle-class families. "Pass it. Get it to my desk. Pass it for the American people.


I don't remember a time when increased taxes helped the economy. Better we eliminate the bloated IRS, save the current 12.5 billion and lower the rates. (what ever happened to the 40,000 IRS employees Obama hired to ensure Obamacare compliance?)

Oooh boy. Tax increases that people will see in January 2024. Gee, what happens in 2024? Let's see. Runaway inflation. Falling stock prices (and 401K funds). Wide open borders and hundreds of thousands of fentanyl deaths. High gas prices. Empty store shelves. Political persecution of opponents. Job Layoffs. Add to that more government regulation and green energy mumbo jumbo. Continued "pandemic" restrictions on a whim. More IRS agents auditing the middle class ('cause that's where the money is, plus they're less likely to have the resources to fight the tax collectors). And now higher taxes, especially among those middle-class and upper middle-class business owners who will see a tax increase as they "pass through" their business income through these new higher "tax the rich/corporate" tax rates. Heck, I'm thinking that Trump can campaign from his basement and win in 2024.

What I hear him saying in the dog whistles from Progressive Democrats, we have a bill that will through money around to both rich contributors to make them even richer, and some crumbs to the rest of you but you'll believe it's significant. The kicker, we're pretending to "help the environment" so many will be fooled into thinking we need to sacrifice a little more, but the real winners are those rich campaign contributors who will be awarded the contracts. The ONLY way we make any significant transition is if we set up hundreds of the new nuclear power facilities across the country, but that will take decades, and we still need the fossil fuels to run the economy. Those battery powered vehicles have very expensive metals which are expensive to dispose of, or recycle. And, whatever happened to carbon offsets? Seems the Progressives have forgotten about those.

Forcing the American people to screw themselves will not play well for the democrat party. Unless they intend to implement full dictatorship, the party is over. I will buy a pair of roller skates before I ever buy a Tesla. Elon Musk will not build a surplus of these cars until there is a sudden demand for them, at which point there will be a severe shortage along with the severe shortage of charging stations and electricity to power the charging stations. The big implosion of this stupid idea is yet to come.

The new Democratic math. Hire an ADDITIONAL 87,000 IRS agents to audit the 400 Billionaires in the country to make them pay their fair share. That's 217.5 agents per Billionaire. I'm sure the Billionaires are quaking in their boots! LOL No, they're meant to audit middle class Americans and make THEM quake in their boots. It'll work too like all Government programs. 87,000 Lois Lerners anyone?

Almost 50 people were shot in Chicago over the weekend, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, as the city deals with rising crime and elevated homicides. Two adults and three teenagers died in the shootings, the Chicago Sun-Times reported, citing the Chicago Police Department.

So here we are again. An armed suspect runs from the police only to be pursued, subdued, disarmed, and arrested. In a sane world, the officers would be lauded for their efforts. Alas, the world is far from sane, and few portions of it are farther from sanity than Chicago and its surrounding communities. So, instead of being praised for removing an armed criminal from the streets, the officers find themselves villainized for using what the uninformed or willfully blind perceive as excessive force. The incident was captured on police and bystander cameras, and when the footage hit social media and the television news, it inspired indignation among

A Russian named Aleksandr Viktorovich Ionov has been charged with “orchestrating a years-long foreign malign influence campaign that used various U.S. political groups to sow discord, spread pro-Russian propaganda, and interfere in elections within the United States.” According to a DOJ press release, Ionov was directed by FSB and gained influence with three separate groups in Florida, Georgia and California. None of those groups were named in the indictment but the identity of the Florida group was revealed after the group’s headquarters was searched by the FBI. The group in question is part of something called the Uhuru Movement which is run by the African People’s Socialist Party.

In what is being hailed as a victory for free speech in Britain, train conductor Simon Isherwood has won a suit for being wrongfully fired from his job over remarks questioning so-called “white privilege”. Mr Isherwood, who was supported in his case against the West Midlands Trains (WMT) by the Free Speech Union (FSU), had been fired in 2020 for questioning left-wing ideology after being required to take an online diversity course on “white privilege”. Forgetting to turn off his microphone after completing the course, Isherwood turned to his wife and said:“I couldn’t be arsed because I thought, ‘You know what, I’ll

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is calling for the end of private car ownership in the name of saving the world from climate change by reducing the need for green tech resources. “We need a clean energy revolution, and we need it now,” the WEF begins its article. According to the WEF, critical metals, such as cobalt, lithium, and nickel — all of which are used in “clean energy technologies” — are in short supply. And while the WEF says recycling old tech that uses these metals could lessen the impact of shortages, it’s simply not enough. “The complication is that we do not currently have enough metals in in circulation

A Fox News Digital analysis of child sex crime data in school districts around the nation has found a minimum of 181 K-12 educators have been arrested on child-related sex crimes in the first half of 2022. Among those educators arrested were four principals, 153 teachers, 12 substitute teachers, and 12 teachers’ aides. The crimes ranged from child pornography to rape of students. “Arrests that weren’t publicized were not counted in the analysis, meaning the true number may well be higher,” Fox News Digital reported. According to the analysis, at least 77 percent, or 140 of the arrests, constituted alleged crimes against students. In 2015, Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA)

When Mary Kay Letourneau was arrested in1997 for rape, it became a national sensation. Not only did she rape her student, she became pregnant and later had the child. Vili Fualaau, the underage father, was 12. The trial resulted in her conviction and she went to prison for seven-and-a-half years.Sure, the fact that she became pregnant was a big part of the story, but in 1997, teachers getting busted for raping/molesting students was unusual news. In 2022, it no longer hits legacy news; because it happens so often, it no longer titillates. But there is another reason; it impacts the left’s insistence that teachers foisting their their sexual predilection

In February, American basketball star Brittney Griner was arrested at a Moscow airport after attempting to bring cannabis oil into the country, which is illegal according to Russian law. In the almost six months since being apprehended, Griner has lingered in a less-than-comfortable prison cell. On Thursday, the legal proceedings of the case came to a close when a Russian court delivered a guilty verdict, followed by a harsh sentence of nine years behind bars. None of Thursday’s developments should have come as a surprise to anyone. As we’ve noted before, 99% of all Russian prosecutions end with a guilty verdict, and with a maximum available sentence of ten years,

The talk in the media is about a “beefed-up” IRS. The IRS budget for FY 2022 totals nearly $14 billion ($11.9 billion in appropriated funds) with a full-time equivalent (FTE) staff ceiling of 79,808 (75,533 from appropriated funding.) Now, the Democrat-controlled Congress, at the behest of the Biden Administration, wants to take that up an additional almost $80 billion, with 1% going to Department of the Treasury offices other than the IRS. That adds up to nearly $93 billion, seven times this year’s budget. SEVEN TIMES.

Barr said, “I think it definitely is a significant event. It changes my view of what’s been going on.

The United States is preparing a new $1bn security assistance package for Ukraine, which will include munitions for long-range weapons and armoured medical transport vehicles, according the Reuters news agency. The package would be one of the largest so far and is expected to be announced as early as Monday, three sources briefed on the matter told Reuters. The US has given about $8.8bn in aid to Ukraine since Russia’s invasion on February 24. The officials, speaking to Reuters on the condition of anonymity, said that President Joe Biden had not yet signed the next weapons package, and cautioned that weapons packages can change in value and content before they are signed.
