    Washington, DC – Today, Club for Growth President David McIntosh issued the following statement as the House Ways and Means Committee continues to mark up the “Tax Cuts and Jobs” bill:“While the corporate tax cut will lead to some increase in our nation’s GDP, the rest of the provisions on individual taxpayers fails the pro-growth test,” Club for Growth President David McIntosh stated.“Republicans must correct at least four serious shortcomings of the House bill to follow through on campaign promises and to bring our nation closer to a tax reform proposal that is truly pro-growth.“1: millionaires’ tax rate: House Republicans...

    President Donald Trump said on Wednesday the rich might see a hike in taxes as he pursues a major tax overhaul with outreach to Democrats who oppose cutting rates for the wealthy, while Republicans in Congress set a timetable to unveil their plan. I think the wealthy will be pretty much where they are, Trump said of taxes on the rich, without specifying the income level. If they have to go higher, theyll go higher, frankly.

    The Cold War has been followed by the class war. A transatlantic class war has broken out simultaneously in many countries between elites based in the corporate, financial, and professional sectors and working-class populists. Already this transnational class conflict has produced Brexit and the election of Donald Trump to the American presidency. Other shocks are likely in store. None of the dominant political ideologies of the West can explain the new class war, because all of them pretend that persisting social classes no longer exist in the West. Neoliberalismthe hegemonic ideology of the transatlantic elitepretends that class has disappeared in...

    Two men who got into a heated confrontation during a North Dakota town hall for Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer had to be escorted from the event Thursday afternoon. Mr. Cramer faced a hostile crowd in Mandan during a question-and-answer session largely focused on his support for the American Health Care Act. Video from the event showed one man, identified by The Bismarck Tribune as Hazen resident Mike Quinn, angrily approaching Mr. Cramer and trying to shove a wad of bills into the congressmans shirt collar. If the health care is destroyed, do the rich get a tax break? Yes or...
  • De Blasios housing-killing class warfare

    New York Post ^ | 3/26/17 | Nicole Gelinas
    New York has a problem: buying an apartment here is way too expensive. Mayor de Blasio has grouchily ambled along with a solution: make apartments even more expensive. That makes no sense. But its the principle of the mayors proposed mansion tax. Last week, de Blasio went up to Albany to push his idea: forcing home buyers to pay a paltry 2.5 percent tax on the value of purchases above $2 million. The tax would raise $336 million a year. That would be enough to subsidize 25,000 poorer elderly folks rent by a little more than $1,000 a month, as...

    A growing gap between rich and poor in Germany could sap social cohesion in Europes largest economy and most populous country, a government report warned on Thursday. If the differences between poor and rich are felt to be too big in a society, and wealth seems mostly to be acquired without rewarding work, then acceptance of the economic and social order can shrink, the labor ministry study said. [] In Germany, the richest 10 percent of households own more than half of all the wealth in the country, while the poorest 50 percent hold around 1.0 percent, Labor Minister Andrea...
  • Will you listen to this speech audio? Unbelievable.

    (He) stated his position when he said that the history of government, the history of liberty, was the history of the limitation of governmental power. This is true as an academic statement of history in the past. It is not true as a statement affecting the present. It is true of the history of medieval Europe. It is not true of the history of twentieth-century America. In the days when all governmental power existed exclusively in the king or in the baronage and when the people had no shred of that power in their own hands, then it undoubtedly was...

    Have the Democrats turned working class middle America against them just like the Whig Party? I know many Trump supporters who are quietly going about their day-to-day business, working 40 - 50 hours a week, paying bills and trying to keep afloat and move their lives forward. However, they are keenly aware of what is happening on the left. The violent (paid) protest, the stupid pussy hats, the suppression of free speech, and the all around anarchy that has happened in places like Berkeley, CA has not gone unnoticed. These Trump voters would like nothing better than to send the...

    It's unfortunate that this has to be a discussion about hate unfortunate because hatred is divisive, destructive, and at the very least unpleasant. It has never been totally gone from us, and now it is in the process of overwhelming an entire side in our political debate. During times of war between countries, hatred has always had its way to one degree or another. Many people from the U.S. and other allied countries hated Germany and Japan during WWII. The converse was true as well. During the current war against radical Islam, it is clear we are hated, and...
  • The Fall of Rome-Are there Lessons to be Learned?

    09/04/2016 4:18:00 PM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 43 replies
    THE FALL OF ROME was a culmination of external and internal factors. GREAT WALL OF CHINA By 220AD, the Later Eastern Han Dynasty had extended sections of the Great Wall of China along its Mongolian border. This resulted in the Northern Huns attacking west instead of east. This caused a domino effect of tribes migrating west across Central Asia, and overrunning the Western Roman Empire. OPEN BORDERS Illegal immigrants poured across the Roman borders: Visigoths, Ostrogoths, Franks, Anglos, Saxons, Alemanni, Thuringians, Rugians, Jutes, Picts, Burgundians, Lombards, Alans, Vandals, as well as African Berbers and Arab raiders.

    According to the government's official data, the number of unemployed black Americans is at its lowest since 2007 seemingly confirming President Obama's narrative that "everything is awesome." So, we wondered, if everything's awesome and everyone's got a job, why are black Americans rioting in Milwaukee? Here is the answer in one chart and one short sentence from a Milwaukee protester... Jobs are not fungible... Since President Obama was elected, black Americans may have seen their joblessness decline - but since President Obama was elected, income inequality for black Americans has soared... The solution is simple - as this young black...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has purchased a nearly $600,000 summer retreat on Vermonts Champlain Islands, the Vermont newspaper Seven Days reported Monday. Weve traveled up to the islands many times over the years almost always on day trips, Jane Sanders, the former White House contender's wife, said in a statement. "The entire family is very excited about it. Weve always been impressed with the North Hero community, eaten at the North Hero House and Shore Acres and have suggested them to friends who were looking for a beautiful place to stay or have dinner.

    Senators on Tuesday rolled out a bipartisan bill aimed at stopping suspected terrorists from buying a gun, as lawmakers try to overcome a stalemate on the issue. "Essentially we believe that if you are too dangerous to fly on an airplane, you are too dangerous to buy a gun," Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) told reporters. The legislation would allow the attorney general to block the sale of a gun if an individual is on the "no-fly" list or the so-called "selectee" list, which requires additional screening at an airport. Collins said the two lists affect approximately 109,000 people, most...

    Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis) has introduced legislation that would require taxpayers to pass a drug test before being allowed to itemize deductions on their 1040 tax forms. The bill is in retaliation for state laws that require welfare recipients to pass drug tests in order to receive benefits. "I am sick and tired of Republicans forcing poor people to jump through hoops to receive the money they are entitled to under the law," Moore complained. "We enacted these programs to help the unfortunate. Few members of society are as unfortunate as drug addicts. They are slaves to chemicals that their...

    Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., in February. (Photo: Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call) A Congresswoman who is sick and tired of drug testing welfare recipients has introduced a bill in Congress that would subject the rich to many of those same requirements. Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., unveiled Thursday the Top 1% Accountability Act, which would require those claiming itemized deductions of more than $150,000 on their tax returns to submit to drug tests or file for less generous tax deductions. The proposal is a shot across the bow at Republican governors in states, including Moores home state of Wisconsin, that require the...

    At the height of the frenzy of Chinas Cultural Revolution, victims were eaten at macabre flesh banquets, but 50 years after the turmoil began, the Communist Party is suppressing remembrance and historical reckoning of the era and its excesses. Launched by Mao in 1966 to topple his political enemies after the failure of the Great Leap Forward, the Cultural Revolution saw a decade of violence and destruction nationwide as party-led class conflict devolved into social chaos.

In remarks about the economy on Friday, Obama chastised those who think theyre self-sufficient and dont need government:You cant build your own metro system. You cant build your own highway. You cant build your own airport. And so we have a specific problem with under-investing in infrastructure.Then, on Saturday, Pres.

    The fabulously rich candidate becomes the hero of working-class people by identifying with their economic distress. That formula worked for Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1930s. Today, Donald Trump's campaign benefits from a similar populist appeal to beleaguered, white, blue-collar voters -- his key constituency. Trump's thumping victory in Tuesday's New York primary renews his momentum as he struggles to overcome the GOP establishment's efforts to block him from seizing the party's presidential nomination. If he continues to win as big as he did in his home state, he may have the delegates needed to prevail in the party convention...

    According to recent polls, socialist Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has opened up double-digit leads over Hillary Clinton in Iowa and New Hampshire, home to the nation's first presidential caucus and primary - and everyone in Arlington National Cemetery has simultaneously turned over in their graves. On June 6, 1944, Allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy, France en route to Berlin to liberate Europe from Adolf Hitler's national Socialist workers party. Immediately following the surrender of the German socialists and the axis powers, the United States engaged in a nearly 50-year Cold War against the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics....
