Biden’s ‘Double Death Tax’

Under the administration’s plan, the year someone died, all of their unrealized capital gains (gains on unsold real estate, family farms and businesses, stocks and other investments, artwork, collectibles, etc.) would be subject to taxation as if the assets in question had been sold that year. The first $1 million of unrealized gains ($2 million in the case of a married couple) would be exempt from the new tax. In addition, up to a certain point ($500,000 for a married couple, half that for others), gains derived from the sale of a primary residence would be exempted. Finally, the administration has said in the vaguest terms that “going concerns” in family farms and businesses would be exempt, but no one knows how that would work or believes it’s anything more than politically expedient hand-waving.

In short, what the Biden administration is proposing is to tax the capital gains on a person’s property when they die, even if the assets that account for those gains haven’t actually been sold. By itself, this is deeply unfair, because potential income from a house or a stock is not real income one owes taxes on until a sale happens and one has cash in hand. (You don’t pay income tax on the growth in your home’s value every year, for example.) But to make matters worse, the administration also supports raising the top tax rate on long-term capital gains from 23.8 percent to 43.4 percent. When state capital-gains-tax rates are factored in, this would make the combined rate at or above 50 percent in many places — the highest capital-gains-tax rate in the world, and the highest in American history.

Biden Switching To Water Policy That Trump Said Made Showers Take Too Long


The shower regulation dates back to a 1992 law that stipulates that a showerhead cannot deliver “more than 2.5 gallons per minute at a flowing water pressure of 80 pounds per square inch,” according to The Wall Street Journal. The law, the U.S. Energy Policy Act, also established minimum efficiency standards for other household water fixtures, such as faucets.

But in 2010, Steven Chu, the Obama administration’s self-described energy efficiency “zealot,” started pursuing an interpretation of the law stipulating that multiple nozzles counted as one showerhead. As such, the Obama administration’s eventual interpretation made it so that the water coming out of each nozzle could not add up to more than 2.5 gallons per minute in total.

This interpretation of the law was later questioned by Trump, whose own Department of Energy determined late last year that, when a single shower has multiple nozzles installed, each nozzle could be allowed to spray up to 2.5 gallons of water per minute and remain in compliance.

Blackburn Demands Biden Answer 5 Questions About ‘Coordination With Big Tech To Censor Americans’


Blackburn wants to know the administration’s criteria for allegedly directing Big Tech to flag or remove posts or ban users. The Republican also questioned the infamous list of 12 social media users allegedly pushing vaccine “misinformation,” which White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki brushed off by noting that these accounts are “public.” Blackburn also pressed about the administration’s “legal basis” for such apparent action and if there are any “dedicated” staffers for this process.

“New: [Marsha Blackburn] demands Biden White House answer these five questions about their ‘coordination with Big Tech to censor Americans,'” reported Philip Wegmann. Here are the five questions:
  1. What criteria are you directing social media platforms to use to flag and remove posts?
  2. What criteria are you directing social media platforms to use to ban users?
  3. In your July 15th press briefing, you stated that 12 people are responsible for “65 percent of anti-vaccine misinformation on social media platforms.” Who are those account and have they, or others, been removed at your direction?
  4. What is the legal basis for your Administration’s decision to direct social media platforms to flag and remove posts from their sites?
  5. Does the White House have staff dedicated to searching social media for content to flag for removal?

Biden Just Accused Robert F. Kennedy Jr. of 'Killing People.' Wait, What?


As it turns out, the dirty dozen of disinfo includes none other than Robert F. Kennedy Jr., nephew of the late President John F. Kennedy. I’m not kidding.

Those people, dubbed the “disinformation dozen” by the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH), include Robert F. Kennedy Jr. — nephew of former United States president John F. Kennedy — and Joseph Mercola, a well-known anti-vaxxer who peddles health supplements he claims can cure disease.
The other named perpetrators were the joint account of Ty and Charlene Bollinger, as well as the social media accounts of Sherri Tenpenny, Rizza Islam, Rashid Buttar, Erin Elizabeth, Sayer Ji, Kelly Brogan, Christiane Northrup, Ben Tapper and Kevin Jenkins.
Here is the actual report that Biden is using to accuse Kennedy of killing people with his social media posts.

Kennedy is a bit of a loon. Or a bought loon. He did anti-fossil fuel PR while taking oil money from Venezuelan communist dictator Hugo Chavez, and was devastated when Chavez died. He was anti-vax long before it was cool.

Biden Argues Massive Government Spending Will Help Fend Off Inflation, Not Exacerbate It


Biden contended that investments in infrastructure such as roads, bridges, and broadband would eliminate economic “chokepoints” that currently raise prices on goods.

“If your primary concern is about inflation, you should be even more enthusiastic about this plan,” Biden said. “We can’t afford not to make these investments.”

During a question and answer session with reporters, Biden dismissed predictions of high inflation.

“There’s nobody suggesting unchecked [inflation] is on its way,” Biden said. “No serious economist.”

Former treasury secretary Larry Summers warned that Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill was “the least responsible fiscal macroeconomic policy we’ve have had for the last 40 years,” in a March interview with Bloomberg TV. That relief bill included funding for state and local governments, medical aid, and a round of checks to all Americans.

Joe Biden Admits to Spreading Misinformation, So Will Banning Come Next?



Today, he tried to back off that a bit to not appear as authoritarian, saying he was really talking about the 12 people Jen Psaki had claimed were spreading most of the misinformation.

So, you mean Joe just admitted to misinformation? Because that’s what he just did. He claimed explicitly Facebook was killing people, now he’s trying to say they’re not killing people. Even this statement about it, he’s still spinning, when he’s supposedly trying to bring down the temperature and clean up what he said. He just can’t quite do it, he’s still trying to blame Facebook. Notice how it’s really Facebook’s fault, for “taking it personally.” Yes, how dare they take personally the fact that he said they were killing people? Shame on them! They said in response that Biden was just trying to deflect from not meeting his vaccination goals.

So can the banning be far behind, now that Joe’s admitted to spreading misinformation? His rules.

It’s a bit too late to try to clean it up now, Joe. Jen Psaki admitted to getting Facebook to censor users, There’s a small constitutional problem there and you can’t stuff the genie back in the bottle and pretend we didn’t hear it.

Master of Misinformation: Joe Biden’s 10 Worst Lies


1. Misinformation about neo-Nazis. Biden launched his presidential campaign in April 2019 by claiming that President Donald Trump had referred to neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, as “very fine people.” In fact, Trump had said they should be “condemned totally.” Biden did not invent the lie, but by repeating it, he convinced many Americans that their president was a Nazi sympathizer, and stoked racial tensions that fed nationwide unrest.
2. Misinformation about the coronavirus vaccine. In August 2020, then-candidate Biden told Americans they could not trust a vaccine that was being produced by Trump’s Operation Warp Speed. “It’s not likely to go through all the tests and the trials that are needed to be done,” Biden said, slandering the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). He also said Trump was “moving it quicker than the scientists think it should be moved,” falsely claiming the authority of science.
3. Misinformation about officer-involved shootings. When police shot Jacob Blake Jr. in Kenosha last August, Biden called Blake “a victim of excessive force” and said that “the officers must be held accountable.” In fact, Blake was armed with a knife; had fought with officers; and was wanted on an outstanding warrant for sexual assault. A subsequent investigation exonerated the officers. Biden’s lie fueled outrage that had already exploded into riots on Kenosha’s streets.

4. Misinformation about Antifa and riots. 2
5. Misinformation about China’s threat to the U.S.
6. Misinformation about military deaths.
7. Misinformation about economic re-openings.
8. Misinformation about Trump and Lafayette Square.
9. Misinformation about Hunter Biden’s laptop and Russian “misinformation.”
10. Misinformation about Republicans and “Jim Crow.”

Biden Admin Linked Radical Handbook Instructing Teachers To ‘Disrupt Whiteness’ As Part Of School Reopening Guidance, Admits ‘Error’


The Biden administration has admitted the Department of Education made an “error” after Fox News revealed that the DOE promoted a radical handbook from the Abolitionist Teaching Network as part of its COVID-19 school reopening guidance. The Fox News report added that the ATN instructs teachers to “disrupt whiteness” and that an ATN founder sees it as her mission to “trouble [white teachers’] internalized White supremacy and anti-Blackness.”

The ATN handbook, titled “Guide for Racial Justice & Abolitionist Social and Emotional Learning,” is linked in the Biden administration’s Department of Education “Ed COVID-19 Handbook” which is designed to guide teachers in “reopening safely and meeting all students’ needs.”

The guide promotes the “historic American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP),” and provides “resources” to schools looking to spend the $122 billion in ARPA funds earmarked for public schools to help correct the “disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on students of color, students from low-income backgrounds, students with disabilities, English learners, students who are migratory, students experiencing homelessness, students in correctional facilities, and students in foster care”

‘I’m Continuing To Push To Eliminate The Sale Of’ Things Like ‘9mm Pistol,’ ‘Rifle’


President Joe Biden suggested during a CNN town hall on Wednesday night that he is pushing to eliminate the sales of pistols along with rifles that have the ability to fire multiple rounds.

“I’m the only guy that ever got — passed legislation when I was a senator to make sure we eliminated assault weapons,” Biden said. “The idea you need a weapon that can have the ability to fire 20, 30, 40, 50, 120 shots from that weapon, whether it’s a, whether it’s a 9mm pistol or whether it’s a rifle, is ridiculous.”

“I’m continuing to push to eliminate the sale of those things, but I’m not likely to get that done in the near term,” Biden added.

Biden’s attempt to rope Big Tech into more censorship is downright sinister

Psaki’s assurances are hard to take seriously, given the public pressure Team Biden is applying, its ability to launch litigation and support legislation that hurts social-media companies, as well as its threat of “legal and regulatory measures.” If those companies do what the president wants by cracking down on speech he doesn’t like, they will be acting as the government’s agents.

This censorship by proxy is especially troubling, because the “misinformation” that offends Biden and Murthy isn’t limited to verifiably false statements about COVID-19 vaccines, such as claims that they cause infertility or alter human DNA. It also includes messages that are accurate but “misleading,” which could mean they discourage vaccination by emphasizing small risks, noting that vaccines aren’t completely effective or raising questions about the methodology of vaccine studies.

Nor is the “misinformation” targeted by the Biden administration confined to speech about vaccines. Murthy is also concerned about messages that might encourage people to “reject public-health measures such as masking and physical distancing,” which would encompass even good-faith skepticism about the effectiveness of those safeguards.

Biden Tells One Heck of a Breathtaking Lie at CNN Town Hall




Not only is it a blatantly obvious lie, but especially because we just found out in the last couple of days, that six of the runaway Texas Democrats infected a White House official and a Pelosi aide. All the people claim to have been fully vaccinated. Plus Jen Psaki admitted that there have been other “breakthrough cases” at the White House — meaning people who had been vaccinated yet tested positive for the virus anyway. And there are all kinds of these cases stacking up now. Don’t they tell him anything when they hide him in the basement? Or has he completely missed everything, even what Jen Psaki is saying?

'I Want Us Feared'

It just keeps getting better. And by “better,” of course, I mean worse. Far worse, in this case. As reported by Fox News on Wednesday morning, The Biden administration’s guidance for school reopening included the promotion of a radical activist group’s handbook that advocates for educators to “disrupt Whiteness and other forms of oppression.” “I want us feared,” the group’s co-founder defiantly declared.

Biden's Baleful Border Betrayal


But let’s quit playing games. This is very serious and getting more so every day. U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported that June border apprehension numbers reached a 21-year high, with more than 188,000 arrests and more than 1.1 million this year to date.

Even more troubling: This is not a seasonal spike as Democrats have been saying. The numbers of crossings usually rise in the spring and then recede in the summer, but the numbers are still increasing. At this rate, we’ll break the 2006 record. President Joe Biden and his faithful party continue to deny, obfuscate and deceive, but none of their rationalizations hold water — and they know it.


This is a crisis purely of their making; reversing President Donald Trump’s border policies, emasculating Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, and rolling out the red carpet for illegals is hardly going to deter attempted crossings. Indeed, we can trace these endless crossing spikes directly to these and Biden’s other wanton policies of scrapping the “Remain in Mexico” policy, ending border wall construction and supporting the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

Not that you would expect the left to be consistent, but they sure are fair-weather opponents of COVID-19. Just as they never objected to maskless left-wing rioters or fleeing Texas Democrat lawmakers, they seem wholly indifferent to the hazards of COVID-19-infected migrants. No, actually, they are worse than indifferent. Here, they are COVID-19 enablers, given their plan to end Title 42, the law Trump invoked to refuse entry to immigrants with the virus. This, despite knowing and even admitting that this action will cause a new influx of migrants and possibly result in Homeland Security having to process up to 1,200 family units a day. COVID-19 infection rates in emergency shelters for migrant youth are reportedly between 15% and 20%.

Biden Cancels Trump DHS Proposal Targeting Terrorists, Spies


This month, the Biden administration withdrew a Trump administration Department of Homeland Security regulation that was designed to protect Americans from violent Islamic terrorists or Chinese spies who use their student visas to stay in the United States.

On July 6, the Biden administration withdrew Proposed Rule 2020-20845, which spoke of the threat from Chinese spies and Islamic terrorists as it attempted to monitor the status of student visa holders in the United States. The rule, proposed by the Trump administration DHS in September 2020, would have required student visa holders to “renew them every two or four years and to check that they are still in good standing at universities.”

‘You Are Such A Pain In The Neck’


“You are such a pain in the neck, but I’m going to answer your question because we’ve known each other so long,” Biden responded. “It has nothing to do with Iraq.”

“Yes, Veteran Affairs is going to, in fact, require that all doctors working in their facilities are gonna have to be vaccinated,” Biden added.
