Of Course Main Stream Media Has Been Scaring People About The Tax Bill – It Hurts Their Narrative!

Published

(Via The Daily Caller)

Pervasive media bias about the GOP-led tax bill has caused a vast majority of people to believe they are going to receive a massive tax hike if President Trump signs it into law.

Leftist media pundits and even “objective” anchors and reporters have framed the bill as a tax cut for the rich that is being paid for by the middle class, even though analysis shows that the middle class will reap the biggest income gains.

As the Wall Street Journal’s Richard Rubin tweeted on Tuesday, 80 percent of households will get cuts in 2018, but only 17 percent in a WSJ poll believe they’re getting tax cuts.

That gap between perception and reality may be attributed to media hysteria that has described the bill as “plunder,” “tax cuts for the rich,” and a “fantasy.”

After the House passed the bill on Tuesday, the Associated Press published an unbelievably misleading headline, writing that the bill provides “steep tax cuts for businesses, the wealthy.” Of course, the tax bill provides tax cuts for the lower and middle class as well.

According to the Joint Committee on Taxation, the middle class will receive $61 billion in tax cuts in 2019, totaling 23 percent of the overall tax cuts for individuals.

Yet outlets like The Washington Post, Newsweek, Time Money, and The New York Times all described the bill as a “tax hike” on the middle class.

While some of the benefits to the middle class expire by 2027, which is primarily what is being referenced by those media outlets, any tax hike is contingent on the assumption that the tax benefits will not be renewed by 2027. That outcome is relatively unlikely considering the history of the “temporary” Bush-era tax cuts and the fact that the 2027 expiration date was only added to overcome a Senate budget rule.

Many of those claims also center on the repeal of the Obamacare individual mandate, which could raise the cost of health care for some families or allow them to opt out of purchasing insurance because they’re no longer required to do so. Len Burman, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center, told The Washington Post that it was “misleading” to characterize a rise in health insurance costs as a tax increase.

Media pundits and anchors have done their fair share of proselytizing about the bill as well.

“What you are seeing in the United States Senate… is the ugliest display of pigs at the trough that I have ever seen in Congress,” MSNBC anchor Lawrence O’Donnell cried on his show.

“Millionaire Republicans are cutting THEIR OWN TAXES… and they’re going to make you pay for it,” MSNBC’s Joy Reid claimed Tuesday.

“They’re literally stealing from you,” she continued in another tweet on Wednesday.

In an interview with Speaker Paul Ryan, NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie straight up asked him if he was living in a “fantasy world” when he claimed that the bill would encourage more investment by businesses.

There is a real debate to be had about the effects of the tax bill on business, if the cuts on the middle class incomes will continue past 2027, and whether or not certain provisions should have made it in, but the media’s portrayal of the bill as an obvious disaster is unfair and misleading.

The result is hysteria among the masses, even though the vast majority of people are set to keep more of their own money.

Trump Is Poised To Take 2024 By Storm

Published

on

Biden has unsuccessfully been able to reform any issues left by the Trump administration and quite frankly has only made it worse. Inflation and the economy is hurting everyone, especially lower income voters who ironically voted for Biden. This has set off a windstorm for Biden as his approval rating goes further down the drain. With little hopes of any major policy wins before the 2022 election, Biden’s Administration, which championed “getting things done”, has stopped before it really even got off the ground.

With 2022 around the corner we will see a slue of Republican Presidential challengers, with Trump of course, being at the center of the pack. Rumors have it that Ron DeSantis, Chris Christie, and the like of Mitt Romney will all join the nomination, however this is only rumor and speculation. Trump however, will become the nominee. It would be hard for anyone to top someone who has already been President, even a firebrand like DeSantis, who has garnered  national support for a Presidential run.

Biden has failed so miserably that when a another Democrat attempts to challenge Trump’s economy compared what we are in now, it will be completely inexcusable. Not to mention the major social engineering the majority of parents and Americans are rejecting in terms of the LGBTQ Mafia Agenda & BLM. Biden, if anything, has completely destroyed the Democratic party’s chance of being a favorite with middle and upper-income voters, setting a disasters for the Democrats in 2024.

Lauren Witzke: Among Several Children on Hunter Biden Laptop, Including Chris Coon’s Daughter

Published

Well, folks. The dam is finally breaking on what is exactly going on with the Hunter Biden laptop scandal that the corporate media has refused to cover, simultaneously big tech is clamping down attempts to use their platform to share the story. And now we know why, because it involves underage children.

This weekend, Senatorial Candidate in Delaware and America First Patriot, Lauren Witzke, has exposed the most damning allegation yet. With an official police source confirming that Chris Coon’s Daughter is one of several children on the Hunter Biden laptop.

There are other allegations going around possible connections to foreign children being on the Hunter Biden laptop as well as several children of other politicians including one of Barack Obama’s daughter.

This only further proves Joe Biden and his entire family, and Chris Coons, are completely compromised by foreign entities and domestic deep state actors within our Government. They hold no allegiance to anything but what their masters tell them to do, because at the end of the day they are at the whims of others leaking this information and publicly destroying them and their career.

We can only imagine more damning allegations are coming to break now that we have a first look at just how explosive the “Laptop From Hell”, as President Donald Trump puts it, really is.

Trump Judges & The Purge

Published

on

I’d rather be judged by 12 than carried by six.

That great lyric from Ice Cube has more bite and meaning in the run up to the 2020 election. Now we have the investigation of the investigators. The Mueller investigation and everything it has encompassed is now being scrutinized. We are finally looking at indictments and guilty pleas from the corrupt cabal that tried to bring down, frame, jail and impeach a duly elected, INNOCENT president and anyone in his sphere. Getting to the point of investigating the investigators has been a long hard slog.

We did not foresee how really deep and treacherous the swamp really was. You could investigate, indict and try someone like a Hillary Clinton for example, and someone of authority in that chain is a corrupt actor from the Deep State and you will then see the guilty party skate free. Or you can have a completely innocent Mike Flynn, Roger Stone, George Papodopoulos railroaded by a corrupt judge. The Michael Flynn case is the most glaring. The DOJ has dropped the case and charges against him and in an unprecedented move the judge does not drop the case, he extends it as if he is the prosecutor.

So there is a light at the end of the tunnel my friends. Donald Trump has been appointing a record number of federal judges. This is a brilliant move and somewhat frustrating and time consuming. But there is a method to the madness. Why investigate, indict and try just for a Deep State judge to let the guilty party walk free? Donald Trump has appointed over 300 judges and counting. More will be appointed to the bench and now there is a more likely chance when the guilty parties are tried, there will be justice. So there is a silver lining in this swamp covered cloud.
