Biden’s dug a hole for himself, but he keeps digging





Biden and Schumer ought to listen to Manchin, who seems to have a better understanding of where voters are than either the White House or the Democratic leadership. In our September survey, we tested two of Manchin’s statements on the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion proposal:


Statement 1: “The proposed $3.5 trillion in new spending isn’t to solve urgent problems, but to re-envision America’s social policies.”


Statement 2: “Spending trillions more dollars not only ignores present economic reality, but makes it certain that America will be fiscally weakened when it faces a future recession or national emergency.”



A wide majority of respondents agreed with Manchin’s first statement, 53 percent to 23 percent. Not only did Republicans believe this (54 percent to 27 percent), but Democrats did too (59 percent to 19 percent). Liberal Democrats agreed with the statement at an even higher level, 64 percent to 17 percent — a clear indication that the goal of the legislation is social reengineering rather than solving urgent problems.

Almost half of respondents (49 percent) agreed with Manchin’s second statement, while only 30 percent disagreed. Two-thirds of Republicans believed this (68 percent to 17 percent), while only a third of Democrats did (33 percent to 46 percent). Importantly, independents agreed with Manchin on both statements — 45 percent to 24 percent and 47 percent to 24 percent, respectively — validating the West Virginia Democrat’s position as a bona fide centrist in the Senate.

Biden Admin Moves To Shut Down Drones On Southern Border As They Reveal His Crisis To The World


The Biden administration moved to shut down drones flying in an area along the U.S. southern border where the administration has thousands upon thousands of migrants being held under an overpass.

Fox News reported that, according to law enforcement sources, the majority of those being held under the overpass are Haitians. The report comes as the Biden administration once again suffered a catastrophic month at the border for the month of August, according to reports this week.

“We’ve learned that the FAA just implemented a two week TFR (Temporary Flight Restrictions) over the international bridge in Del Rio, TX, meaning we can no longer fly our FOX drone over it to show images of the thousands of migrants,” Fox News reporter Bill Melugin tweeted. “FAA says ‘special security reason.’”

Saw a news comment on the numbers of encounters dropped last month from 220,000 to 214,000 like it was a huge improvement.

Ya know what's funny.?
I said a month ago that if Cubans and Haitians wanted to come to America, they needed to go to Mexico and walk across.
If they come by boat they are caught on the shore and sent back., but they can simply walk across and be welcomed if they come from Mexico.

They must have seen my post.;

Biden Faces Backlash Over Move To Block Drones At Border Site: ‘Biden Is Taking Notes From The CCP’


Democrat President Joe Biden faced intense backlash over his administration’s decision on Thursday to block drones that were flying near an overpass in Del Rio, Texas, where thousands upon thousands of migrants were being apprehended by the administration under an overpass.

“We’ve learned that the FAA just implemented a two week TFR (Temporary Flight Restrictions) over the international bridge in Del Rio, TX, meaning we can no longer fly our FOX drone over it to show images of the thousands of migrants,” Fox News reporter Bill Melugin tweeted. “FAA says ‘special security reason.’”

Toddler-Masking Biden Says Governors Are 'Playing Politics With the Lives of…Children'






As Jacob Sullum has documented, there are scientists all over the United States and United Kingdom and Western Europe who do not agree with the CDC that masking kids in group settings beginning at age 2 has a demonstrably positive effect on stopping the spread of COVID-19, let alone one large enough to offset the costs in learning, communication, and emotional well-being.

The president is saying explicitly that kids in unmasked environments are unsafe. That would mean every student in Arizona, Utah, Oklahoma, Iowa, Tennessee, and Georgia, for starters, plus most in "the U.K., Ireland, all of Scandinavia, France, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Italy." Aside from the factual unlikelihood, what kind of message does that convey to parents nervous about sending their kids back into school buildings?

[clip]

There is something extra rich about Biden and Cardona accusing Republicans of elevating political concerns over the well-being of kids. One of the main reasons why certain Democratic-run school districts, cities, states, and now the federal government have enacted some of the world's most restrictive and inflexible school-reopening policies is that A) teachers unions have far more clout in the United States than, say, France, and B) those same teachers unions overwhelmingly have pull with Democratic politicians, who are recipients of 94 percent of their political donations.

And Biden's CDC in particular has repeatedly allowed teachers unions to influence what are supposedly scientific recommendations about masking and reopening requirements. As usual, when a politician says something like "We've got to come together," what he really means is "You've got to agree with my contestable policies, which I've arrived at by the usual unholy alliances with interest groups."

‘I’m A Capitalist,’ But ‘Pay Your Fair Share’: Biden Praises Democrat Tax Hike


President Biden’s remarks wrongly claimed that the wealthy do not already pay their “fair share.” Indeed, high earners provide the vast majority of federal revenue.

As The Daily Wire’s Ben Johnson detailed in August, Internal Revenue Service data from 2018 show that the top 1% of American income earners paid more in federal income taxes than the bottom 90% percent of income earners combined. Additionally, 61% of all American taxpayers paid no taxes last year, and the bottom half of taxpayers paid less than 3% of all income taxes.

Biden also claimed that only wealthy Americans will pay more taxes:

We’re not going to raise taxes on anyone making under $400,000. That’s a lot of money. Some of my liberal friends are saying it should be lower than that. But only corporations and people making over $400,000 a year are going to pay any additional tax… Not only will no one making under $400,000 see their taxes go up, the middle class are going to get some tax cuts — some breaks.

At the UN, Biden Says American Freedom Is 'Connected' and Dependent on the Rest of the World


"There's a fundamental truth in the 21st century. Within each of our countries and as a global community, our own success is bound up in others succeeding as well. To deliver for our own people, we must also engage deeply with the rest of the world," Biden said. "Our security, our prosperity and our very freedoms are interconnected."

Biden also reassured the UN that U.S. taxpayers will foot the bill for a number of global pet projects.

Report: Border Patrol Agents Furious With Biden’s Promise To Make Them ‘Pay’: ‘He Just Started A War’


Biden’s claims sparked angry reactions among Border Patrol agents who have been stretched thin attempting to curb a surge of illegal immigration into the U.S. that began shortly after Biden won the presidency last year. Agents speaking to Fox News panned Biden’s comments.

“Would you go to work and do your best knowing that if you do your boss is going to ‘make you pay?’” one agent said. “I’m dumbfounded and don’t know what to say.”

“Is the president threatening to throw us in prison?” he asked.

Another agent said, “I see the administration wants to fry our agents. He just started a war with Border Patrol.”

Brandon Judd, who represents thousands of Border Patrol agents as president of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), ripped Biden on Thursday. Judd accused the president of turning on his own law enforcement officers.



Well Open Borders Authoritarians have been wanting get rid of the CBP for a while now, this seems like a good place to start

Vilify the CBP and par down operations firing a bunch of them

Biden Is 'Weaponizing' the IRS Against Middle-Class Americans


The “report” consists of five charts laying out from multiple angles how much more each income level of Americans will pay if the House version of Biden’s $3.5 trillion “Build Back Better” spending plan and associated tax measures become law.

“The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act cut taxes across all income groups, especially for the middle class,” said committee member Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho).

“This nonpartisan analysis shows that less than a third of all Americans will benefit from Democrats’ tax plans, with more than two thirds either experiencing no benefit or facing immediate tax hikes. The middle class and small businesses in particular will be getting very little—except for more taxes.”

Crapo further pointed out that:

“In 2023, more than two thirds of all taxpayers will get essentially no benefit from the House Tax Bill or will experience a meaningful tax increase. By 2027, more than 85 percent of all taxpayers will fall into this category.
“These results apply across the income spectrum, including with respect to nearly 60 percent of those earning between $20,000 and $30,000 and nearly three quarters of all taxpayers earning between $30,000 and $100,000.
“Even those on the very bottom are more likely to get no benefit, with 64 percent of Americans earning less than $10,000 no better off than they currently are.”
And it gets worse. In 2023, taxpayers of every income level will see meaningful tax increases, including:
  • Nearly five percent of taxpayers earning between $40,000 and $50,000
  • Nine percent of those earning between $50,000 and $75,000
  • 18 percent of those earning between $75,000 and $100,000
  • 35 percent of those earning between $100,000 and $200,000
  • 59 percent of those earning between $200,000 and $500,000

Along with the higher taxes, Biden wants to double the size of the IRS workforce by authorizing it to hire 87,000 additional agents and greatly expand their authority to dig into your bank records without telling you.

Biden says unvaccinated Americans are ‘costing all of us’ as he presses Covid vaccine mandates


President Joe Biden on Friday blamed unvaccinated Americans for slowing down the U.S. economic recovery, accusing some elected officials of actively trying to undermine the administration’s efforts to combat the Covid-19 pandemic.

Biden’s comments came hours after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention approved distributing Pfizer and BioNTech’s booster shots to roughly 60 million Americans.

“The vast majority of Americans are doing the right thing,” Biden said in addressing the nation, noting that three-fourths of those eligible have gotten at least one shot. He criticized the more than 70 million people who haven’t yet started the vaccination process. “And to make matters worse, there are elected officials actively working to undermine with false information the fight against Covid-19. This is totally unacceptable.”

The Tax-Gap Myth


Propaganda is what it is, and so I was unsurprised to read in the article the claim that we have a “two-tiered tax system.” The author claims that our tax system contains “two sets of rules: one for regular wage and salary workers who report virtually all the income they earn; and another for wealthy taxpayers, who are often able to avoid a large share of the taxes they owe.”

This is not so. There are absolutely not two sets of rules in the tax code. The Internal Revenue Code applies to all taxpayers equally. A person earning a small amount of income must report all of it and pay whatever tax is owed after the application of allowed deductions, credits, etc. The same is true for high-income people.

This is merely a thinly veiled attempt to use class envy as a device to persuade lower-income people that while they must pay through the nose on their taxes, high-income people are permitted to systematically cheat on theirs. In that case, the former will likely countenance any plan to attack the latter without considering the possibility that they also might be harmed. But that’s exactly what will happen since there are simply not enough high-income earners available to raise the revenue needed to support the trillions of dollars in proposed spending and deficits.

Another dubious contention in the article is the idea that lawmakers are somehow hamstrung in their policy-making by the failure of some to pay all the tax they owe. The author argues:

The tax gap also has meaningful implications for fiscal policy. These unpaid taxes mean policymakers must choose between rising deficits, lower spending on important priorities, or further tax increases to compensate for lost revenue — which will only be borne by compliant taxpayers.

‘Simply stunning. And terrifying.’ Joe Biden has nominated a proud USSR-loving communist to take charge of our banking system




This sounds promising:

President Biden checked off another progressive identity box last week by nominating Saule Omarova as Comptroller of the Currency. Some Trump appointees were ridiculed for having supported the elimination of their agencies. Ms. Omarova wants to eliminate the banks she’s being appointed to regulate.
The Cornell University law school professor’s radical ideas might make even Bernie Sanders blush. She graduated from Moscow State University in 1989 on the Lenin Personal Academic Scholarship. Thirty years later, she still believes the Soviet economic system was superior, and that U.S. banking should be remade in the Gosbank’s image.

Why Rachael Rollins’ Nomination to Be Rogue US Attorney Should Terrify Us All





Cotton said that “Rachael Rollins is the very epitome of a Soros prosecutor”—we call them rogue prosecutors—because of her radical pro-criminal, anti-victim policies that harm victims, harm communities, and attempt to fundamentally transform our criminal justice system.

Cotton said, “Rollins, like San Francisco’s Chesa Boudin and Philadelphia’s Larry Krasner and Los Angeles’ George Gascon, are out to destroy the criminal justice system from within.”

He—along with Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas—pointed out that Rollins had the audacity to put forward a list of 15 crimes that someone can now commit in Boston under her watch without fear of being prosecuted—including those who possess dangerous illegal drugs such as heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl with the intent to distribute them to others. In other words, she won’t prosecute drug dealers.

Cotton summed up the problem succinctly when he said, “If Rachael Rollins wants to advocate for criminals to be released instead of for the law to be enforced, there’s a place for her in our government: It’s called the public defender’s office. But with Rollins as a prosecutor in name only, the criminals have two advocates in the courtroom—the prosecution and the defense—while the victims of crime would have none.”
