  • Why A Corporate Tax Cut Won't Boost Economic Growth

    The House and Senate are considering tax legislation that will add $1.5 trillion to annual deficits over the next 10 years, according to their own numbers. This is okay, we're told, because the tax cuts will stoke economic growth, delivering added tax revenue that offsets the rate reductions. Note the bigger point here. Republicans still say they don’t like deficits — but apparently, this particular plan lets them cut taxes without adding more debt. It’s a miracle. Is their claim really true? Will the GOP tax plans boost economic growth? That’s the 1.5-trillion-dollar question. Theory vs. Reality The Republican plan’s...

    Thanks to our society’s narrow standards of beauty, women are expected to have no body hair whatsoever (except, of course, on their head). But after being fed up with how much time it took to shave, one fitness blogger decided to throw away her razor and embrace her natural beauty instead. In a YouTube video that has now been viewed more than 460,000 times, Morgan Mikenas revealed that she hasn’t shaved her legs or armpits in over a year! “The purpose of this video is not to shame people who do shave,” Mikenas wrote in the video's info section. “I...
  • Records Show Conservatives Overtly Excluded as Leftists Got $1 Billion from Companies Sued by DOJ

    Judicial Watch ^ | 10/26/17
    An Obama-era scheme that forced companies sued by the government to fund leftist groups overtly excluded conservative organizations, according to internal Department of Justice (DOJ) records obtained by Judicial Watch. As part of settlements, the DOJ would often give the corporations—mainly big banks—double credit if they gave money to leftwing interest groups handpicked by the administration instead of paying the government. The new records demonstrate a collaborative effort among high-level officials in the Office of the Assistant Attorney General (OAAG) and the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) to ensure conservative groups did not receive any settlement cash.The operation is known...

  • The Black Family is Struggling, and It’s Not Because of Slavery

    The black family was stronger the first 100 years after slavery than during what will be the second 100 years. That the problems of today’s black Americans are a result of a legacy of slavery, racial discrimination, and poverty has achieved an axiomatic status, thought to be self-evident and beyond question. This is what academics and the civil rights establishment have taught. But as with so much of what’s claimed by leftists, there is little evidence to support it. The No. 1 problem among blacks is the effects stemming from a very weak family structure. Family Structure Children from fatherless...

    Progressives used to pressure U.S. corporations to cut back on outsourcing and on the tactic of building their products abroad to take advantage of inexpensive foreign workers. During the 2012 election, President Obama attacked Mitt Romney as a potential illiberal "outsourcer in chief" for investing in companies that went overseas in search of cheap labor. Yet most of the computers and smartphones sold by Silicon Valley companies are still being built abroad -- to mostly silence from progressive watchdogs. In the case of the cobalt mining that is necessary for the production of lithium-ion batteries in electric cars, thousands of...

    The fix is in. Did you know, corporations like General Electric Co. (GE) spend more money on lobbyists than they pay in taxes? The federal government currently taxes corporations at 35 percent. While many argue the rate is too high, you don’t hear companies like GE complaining about it. That’s because they aren’t paying it. Over the past 15 years, GE’s federal income tax rate averaged only 5.2 percent. General Electric paid no federal taxes in 2010, despite earning $5.1 billion in U.S. profits. Instead, the company claimed a tax benefit of $3.2 billion. Meanwhile, GE executives awarded themselves more...

    America’s tech industry is undergoing a serious fall from grace. Once celebrated as the heralds of the future, the originators of new, disruptive business models, and the curators of the bleeding edge of free thought, the industry has since relapsed into defending the Obama-era status quo, relying on corporate welfare, and silencing any thought that doesn’t conform to an increasingly stifling and politically correct San Francisco liberalism. All this, while also often showing an appalling disregard for the rule of law, and for the legitimacy of an American election.Now, libertarian or liberal promoters of the industry may argue that part...

    While Jamie Dimon tried to maintain his traditionally optimistic outlook in his annual letter to shareholders, there was a distinct undertone of pessimism in the latest 45 page letter released earlier today, in which he writes that while the U.S. is "truly an exceptional country," probably stronger than ever before, he cautions that "something is wrong - and it's holding us back."Here are the highlights from the gloomy passage reposted below in its entirety.Dimon's letter notes that the economy has been growing much more slowly in last decade or two than in the 50 years before then, with real...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said he has "serious doubts" about President Donald Trump's nominee to succeed the late Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, the first sign of what is likely to be a contentious confirmation battle. "Now more than ever, we need a Supreme Court Justice who is independent, eschews ideology, who will preserve our democracy, protect fundamental rights, and will stand up to a President who has already shown a willingness to bend the Constitution," Schumer said in a statement. "Given his record, I have very serious doubts about Judge Gorsuch’s ability to meet this standard. Judge...

    It has long ceased to be a secret that college campuses at all levels, from the highest ivy league centers down to community colleges, are centers of far far left wing indoctrination. Why then is it that corporations keep requiring 4 year and above degrees - many times for jobs that clearly don't need such a thing? Most of the time, if you don't have that bachelor degree, you aren't even getting in the door. Don't bother. Don't send an email, don't call, do not show up at the office. Just don't. Ok, Mr. Corporate toady boss. Let's examine your...

    Facebook held a high-profile initial public offering in 2012, but the number of public companies has been on the decline. (Photo via Wikipedia.) Takeaways What's the "correct" number of public firms in America? It's unclear, but the total number of IPOs has been dipping. An underreported story of the last two decades is the sharp decline in the number of publicly traded U.S. firms. In 1996, U.S. stock markets boasted 7,322 listed firms. By 2015, however, that number had dropped by more than half, to 3,200. If we adjust for population, the U.S. had 2.2 public firms per hundred...

    During his first inaugural address, President Obama pledged to bridge the divide between Washington and Main Street America by making government accountable to the people. Nearly eight years later, that chasm has only grown greater, exacerbated by the steady consolidation of executive power and unbridled growth of the federal regulatory machine. Today it’s hard to think of any aspect of daily life not micromanaged by federal bureaucrats. From burdensome new regulations on irrigation waters for farmers to seemingly endless new red tape in our health care and community banking industries, Uncle Sam has a hand in nearly every pot. In...

    (CNSNews.com) - Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) says, “corporations control the patterns of thinking” in the United States and that the Bill of Rights to the Constitution should be amended so that the government is given the power to restrict freedom of speech. "We need a constitutional amendment to allow the legislature to control the so-called free speech rights of corporations," said Johnson. “These corporations, along with the people they support, other millionaires who they’re putting into office, are stealing your government. They’re stealing the government and the U.S. Supreme Court was a big enabler with the Citizens United case,” Johnson...

    The rap on Donald Trump is he's all bluster. The New York Times says he's offering "incoherent mishmash." GOP rival Ted Cruz claims Trump has "no idea" how to fix the economy. Don't' believe it. The Trump campaign is putting forward proposals to fix problems facing the nation, from the long waits for medical care at the VA to the impending collapse of Obamacare. Check out Trump's economic plan, for starters. Unlike Hillary Clinton's radical anti-business agenda, Trump's plan would actually help unemployed Americans get back to work.

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump praised this small state for being an onshore tax haven Friday, boasting that he has 378 entities registered here to take advantage of the sweetheart corporate laws. “Do we love Delaware — do we love it,” Mr. Trump shouted out as a greeting to a crowd of thousands gathered in a livestock arena at Delaware State Fairgrounds. “I pay you all a lot of money. I don’t feel a bit guilty,” said the billionaire businessman. “Really they’ve done corporately a wonderful job here.” In the same speech, Mr. Trump vowed that if elected he would...

    Things have really gone down the toilet. Literally. Corporate America, the bastion of all things ethical, is now forcing its public potty policies on the rest of America. Why do state legislatures need to even waste time on deliberating over whether men use menÂ’s bathrooms and women use womenÂ’s? Oh, because, in our gender-challenged culture, the needs of a deeply confused 0.1% of the population must upend a practice so common sense even a child understands it. In fact, itÂ’s children who will end up being the ones most threatened. I love all people. I just donÂ’t love all their...

    President Barack Obama is launching a version of "take your child to work day" that's focused on America's science laboratories instead of its corporate workspaces. It's part of Obama's effort to encourage young people, especially girls and minorities, to pursue careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.
