  • The Pandora's Box Opened with the Release of Trump's Tax Returns

    The Supreme Court should not require President Trump to release his tax returns on several grounds. There is not one good reason for his tax return to be released, and far too many why they should not. In addition, the Supreme Court should not vote along party lines on this issue. This should be a unanimous vote in order to send a message that the release of these documents would set a dangerous precedent. Without getting into whether it is unconstitutional or not; for sake of argument let’s just assume it is not. All the problems that can occur cannot...

    Neither the ancient Romans nor our British ancestors had written Constitutions. Their supreme law was whatever the Senate or King-in-Parliament determined. While the United States has a written Constitution, it’s honored in the breach, and is often twisted to suit the social justice goals of political opportunists. Time and neglect rendered the supreme law of the land a corrupted dead-letter known as a living and breathing Constitution in which the hard clauses that established the three branches, and little else, remain. In comparison, our quaint and written Constitution is an anachronistic memory of the living and breathing beast that replaced...

    Almost all, if not all, Federal workers are receiving FULL pay and benefits while on lockdown at home while doing no work at all. It is a fact that IRS workers are receiving full pay while most of them are at home not working at all. The media has produced almost no stories (can't find any in a search) on this subject for some reason or another.

    Three months ago, the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) was hardly on the radar for most Americans. Today, it's completely upended the largest economy in the world, displacing more than 20 million workers and unceremoniously ending the longest economic expansion in U.S. history. 1. Your payout was sent to a temporary bank account set up by a tax-prep service 2. You're receiving a paper check 3. You filed a paper tax return 4. The wrong bank account info is on file with the IRS 5. It's been seized by your bank or a collection agency
  • Obama and Me: How I Knew Obama Was a Bad Guy Before Anyone Else (He even Looks Evil!!!)

    I've been writing about "Obama the bad guy" for many years. I was the first to name former President Barack Obama the head of the Obama crime family. I coined the phrase "Obamagate" to describe his reign of crimes against candidate and then President Donald J. Trump. Obama's public persona was always a scam. I knew the real Obama -- way before anyone else caught on. Take the Slate magazine column published days ago by a liberal hack and Obama apologist. He sounded the usual liberal talking points: There is no Obamagate. There is no scandal. It's a conservative conspiracy....

    Eric Holder's resignation, just 40 days before the midterm elections, shows how jittery Obama is about losing control of the Senate this November. While Holder likely is getting out of Dodge before federal judges weigh in and order the release of documents showing he covered up the Fast and Furious and IRS email scandals, the timing of his resignation suggests that Obama wants to be sure that he has time for a Democratic lame duck Senate to confirm a replacement. With so much dirty laundry stacked up in the closets of the Justice Department, Obama didn't dare let in an...

    The White House is considering again delaying the deadline to file federal taxes and adopting economic measures to support Americans that do not require further legislation from Congress, NBC reported. Tax Day, which has already been pushed from April 15 to July 15, could be extended to Sept. 15 or Dec. 15, although an official decision has not been made, the outlet reported, citing two people familiar with the discussions. Trump administration officials have also considered blocking new federal regulations amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, NBC News reported. Additionally, White House officials are assessing whether the president can protect businesses...

    Thousands of foreign workers, many living overseas, are receiving stimulus checks designated for U.S. residents due to an unforeseen glitch that funneled taxpayer dollars to other countries, according to tax consultants and the recipients themselves. College-age workers who spent time in the U.S. in the last two years - some of whom returned home long before the coronavirus pandemic - have been surprised to find $1,200 checks deposited into their bank accounts. And with no clear guidance on how to return it, they’re holding onto the money or racing to spend it before the Internal Revenue Service realizes the mistake....

    The IRS is now sending paper stimulus checks, and plans to send approximately 5 million paper checks each week. The order of stimulus checks is not random or based on geography. The IRS will send checks starting with taxpayers who have the lowest annual adjusted gross income as reported on their 2018 or 2019 tax return, whichever is more recent. Here is the planned weekly schedule for the IRS to mail stimulus checks based on annual adjusted gross income, as first reported by The Washington Post. All dates represent the “week ending” (for example, the week ending April 24) and...

    On Monday, 80 million Economic Impact Payment checks go out by mail. While stimulus checks have already gone out through direct deposit, this is the first round of stimulus checks going out by mail. Postal service inspectors and Virginia Coronavirus Task Force will be out in full force. “This is a top priority all the way at the top of our agency down," said Postal Service Inspector Michael Romano.

    I logged on to this IRS portal this morning. After entering all my info it said you are eligible to receive the stimulus check, but we don't have your bank information! How is that possible when I get my social security via direct deposit to my bank account every month? So I entered my bank information and then the portal said we will deposit the stimulus check to that account! (which is the same account as my SS deposit account).

    April 15 (UPI) -- The IRS rolled out a new tool Wednesday that allows Americans to check the status of their stimulus payments, and tens of millions are expected to have their money by the end of the day. The agency launched the "Get My Payment" web page, where Americans can track their payments by entering tax return information for either 2018 or 2019. The U.S. Treasury began depositing the payments electronically last Friday. The first recipients are eligible U.S. taxpayers who filed a tax return for either of the last two years. For those, the funds will automatically appear...

    With millions of Americans eagerly awaiting their federal stimulus checks to help them weather the the coronavirus recession, people are now able to find out when they can expect to get their money after the government on Wednesday launched a tracking tool called "Get My Payment." The first batch of stimulus checks - or "economic impact payments," as they are officially known - started hitting consumers' bank accounts on Saturday, the Internal Revenue Service has said. But millions of people remain unsure of when the payments will arrive because it depends on whether the IRS has your direct-deposit information and...

    While it looks like everyone is taking seriously the average worker’s needs, no one at the decision-making level has thought of the small business owner. If you’re a small business owner like I am, you’ve been closely following the stimulus efforts of the federal government, looking for a lifeline out of the mess of delayed payments, lost revenue, and furloughed employees. Unfortunately, while it looks as though everyone is taking seriously the average worker’s needs, no one at the decision-making level has thought of the small business owner. Congress passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act on March 18, providing...

    The IRS said over the weekend it has started sending coronavirus stimulus payment to eligible Americans who have direct deposit. “#IRS deposited the first Economic Impact Payments into taxpayers’ bank accounts today,” the IRS announced in a tweet Saturday. “We know many people are anxious to get their payments; we’ll continue issuing them as fast as we can.” The payments are part of the $2.2 trillion package passed by Congress at the end of March intended to help workers who have been laid off or furloughed and to give businesses a financial boost to offset the dire economic effects caused...

    The U.S. federal government is now in the process of sending Economic Impact Payments by direct deposit to millions of Americans. Most who are eligible for payments can expect to have funds direct-deposited into the same bank accounts listed on previous years’ tax filings sometime next week. Today, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) stood up a site to collect bank account information from the many Americans who don’t usually file a tax return. The question is, will those non-filers have a chance to claim their payments before fraudsters do? . . . . In this case, fraudsters would simply need...

    The IRS has reversed course to eliminate a controversial requirement on Social Security recipients seeking stimulus checks as part of the government's coronavirus response package. After initially saying that Social Security recipients would have to file a "simple" tax return for 2019 -- which they ordinarily would not do -- the IRS now says the payment will be automatic without it. "Social Security recipients who are not typically required to file a tax return ... will receive their payment directly to their bank account,” Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin announced Wednesday evening, noting that they will not have to take any...
