Someone stole my nation. She’s called “America” and she’s a beautiful extension of Western Civilization. Drop me a line if you see her. I have an idea as to whodunit. Sadly, it may have been fellow citizens. This one ain’t happy about it and demands her return. Thanks. P
Janet Yellen is a walking, talking example of what you get with the rule of women and foreigners. I keep warning about the coming digital dollar and she (they) keep giving me ammunition.
Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen signaled the Biden administration supports research into the viability of a digital dollar, a shift from the lack of enthusiasm shown for the concept under her predecessor, Steven Mnuchin.
“It makes sense for central banks to be looking at” issuing sovereign digital currencies, Yellen said at a virtual conference on Monday hosted by the New York Times.
She said a digital version of the dollar could help address hurdles to financial inclusion in the U.S. among low-income households.
“Too many Americans don’t have access to easy payments systems and banking accounts, and I think this is something that a digital dollar, a central bank digital currency, could help with,” she said. “It could result in faster, safer and cheaper payments, which I think are important goals.”
Translation: they’re going to seize every last bit of your wealth and autonomy. Money is nonexistent in this dead country and, now, they want to monopolize and grab the floating fiat too. Let them do this and they will have total control of your lives. Central banks issuing sovereign currencies. They don’t even try to hide what they’re doing. And, of course, they advertise it to the retarded as saaaaaaaaafe and inclusive. The rubes who have trouble with the banking system have the problems because they are stupid and because the banks and the government have stacked the deck against them. This, if or when it passes, will complete the transfer of value and the transformation of people into slaves. Standing between you and serfdom are a handful of weak, mindless, homosexual Retardicans. In the end, the answer to this evil must come from the States or from the People. Now would be an ideal time to prepare your answers.
Shocking poll news out of France!
Macron humiliation: President to be beaten by Le Pen in first round of election – new poll!!!
EMMANUEL MACRON could see his seat stolen by Marine Le Pen as soon as in the first round of the 2022 French Presidential election, a new poll has found.
It’s “his seat,” see? Got that? And the same infernal voices that shout about “democracy” call it stealing if they people dare to democratically go against the shouting voices.
If I can ever get around to it, at the end of AURELIUS, there’s a short story appended about Dr. Ironsides’s prior adventures in Paris. In said short – one day, I promise… – a prediction is made about a certain election in 2022. France, make it all come true! Do it for yourselves, for your Republic, and for the West! Give them something to shout and cry and whine about.
The Hoax was a deception in re the economy if nothing else (though there appears to be much else). Even CNBC sees through the fog.
The coronavirus pandemic has produced “one of the greatest wealth transfers in history,” CNBC’s Jim Cramer said.
“The bigger the business, the more it moves the major averages, and that matters because this is the first recession where big business … is coming through virtually unscathed,” the “Mad Money” host said.
“I think we’re looking at a V-shaped recovery in the stock market, and that has almost nothing to do with a V-shaped recovery in the economy,” he said.
What about shooting these institutional looters, Mr.
Bunkerman President? Oh, yeah, they own the show. Sorry.
But, it’s not as bad as feared for Main Street either. Sure, you lost your high-paying job as a teacher, nurse, salesman, journalist, factory foreman, etc., but some uncertain and likely contrived percentage of the newly unemployed did find part-time, low-paying work in May as bartenders and waiters, presumably waiting on the bankster looters. Plus, I hear there are plenty of openings working as robots and AI programs and four newly-posted openings on the Minneapolis police force (candidates must provide their own precinct building). It’s like nothing really happened. Oh well, remember to vote for your slave masters. And get ready for another war!
Another potential gift of the 16th Amendment. Squaw Warren’s tax plan is technically, legally possible.
Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has unveiled sweeping tax proposals that would push federal tax rates on some billionaires and multimillionaires above 100%.
That prospect raises questions for taxpayers and the broader economy that experts are starting to ponder: Under which circumstances would taxpayers have to pay those rates? How might that change their behavior? And would investment and economic growth suffer?
Potential tax rates over 100% could result from the combination of tax increases the Massachusetts senator proposes for the very top tier of investors. She wants to return the top income-tax rate to 39.6% from 37%, impose a new 14.8% tax for Social Security, add an annual tax of up to 6% on accumulated wealth and require rich investors to pay capital-gains taxes at the same rates as other income even if they don’t sell their assets.
Consider a billionaire with a $1,000 investment who earns a 6% return, or $60, received as a capital gain, dividend or interest. If all of Ms. Warren’s taxes are implemented, he could owe 58.2% of that, or $35 in federal tax. Plus, his entire investment would incur a 6% wealth tax, i.e., at least $60. The result: taxes as high as $95 on income of $60 for a combined tax rate of 158%.
One of the lies told to sell the Sixteenth was that the highest rate would never come close to 10%. My weak math skills suggest that 158 is greater than 10. This may be TPC’s topic for next week. For now, I think I am actually in favor of this scheme of theft and slavery. But maybe that’s just the accelerationist in me. Tick. Tick. Tick.
UPDATE: When reading the WSJ article about Squaw, note the names of the policy-makers and backers.
The Dems 2020 Nominee for President (my guess), Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren plans to steal the remaining value left in the economy.
The tax-and-spenders of the world are desperate to find new ways to pay for the crumbling welfare states of western democracies. And they’re targeting the “rich” to do it.
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts), a 2020 presidential candidate, has proposed a 2% annual tax on assets of households with a net worth of $50 million or more. The tax would increase to 3% for billionaires.
Warren’s policy team estimates the wealth tax would raise an astonishing $2.75 trillion over the next decade. She suggests the tax would be a good way to start paying for proposals such as “Medicare for All.”
Some of the wealthiest people in the world support the idea. A public letter signed by George Soros, Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes, and the daughter of billionaire Charlie Munger calls for a wealth tax to “help address the climate crisis, improve the economy, improve health outcomes, fairly create opportunity, and strengthen our democratic freedoms.”
Note the comparisons to FR and CH. But, also understand, the same lies (with nearly the same numbers) are being pushed here, as were used to foist the Sixteenth Amendment in 1913. You know, only the very richest will may, but only 2%. A few decades later, everyone was paying and the 2% grew to 90%. Maybe another reason they don’t teach history or economics now.
Inadvertent? Right. Here’s the Farceberg outrage of the
day minute: 1.5 million accounts robbed of email contacts.
Facebook harvested the email contacts of 1.5 million users without their knowledge or consent when they opened their accounts.
Since May 2016, the social-networking company has collected the contact lists of 1.5 million users new to the social network, Business Insider can reveal. The Silicon Valley company said the contact data was “unintentionally uploaded to Facebook,” and it is now deleting them.
The revelation comes after pseudononymous security researcher e-sushi noticed that Facebook was asking some users to enter their email passwords when they signed up for new accounts to verify their identities, a move widely condemned by security experts. Business Insider then discovered that if you entered your email password, a message popped up saying it was “importing” your contacts without asking for permission first.
At the time, it wasn’t clear what was happening – but on Wednesday, Facebook disclosed to Business Insider that 1.5 million people’s contacts were collected this way and fed into Facebook’s systems, where they were used to improve Facebook’s ad targeting, build Facebook’s web of social connections, and recommend friends to add.
Why do the police always take Zuck’s word about these “inadvertent” mistakes? Smells kind of like theft to me. 1.5 million consecutive 1-year prisons sentences should do as punishment.
Anyhow, I’ll bet it was more than 1.5 million and it was more than just email contacts. If, for some strange, low-IQ reason, you’re still on FB, do at least check your “secret” file to find out exactly what they admit they have on you.
Strike that… If you’re still on the Zuckbook, then just keep looking at those pics and “reading” all those worthy Russian trolling attempts. You don’t need privacy nor need you be worried about anyone invading it; small minds aren’t worth reading.
Why does this not come as a surprise?
The upstart nation was a den of intellectual piracy. One of its top officials urged his countrymen to steal and copy foreign machinery. Across the ocean, a leading industrial power tried in vain to guard its trade secrets from the brash young rival.
In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, the rogue nation was the United States. The official endorsing thievery was Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton. And the main victim was Britain.
How times have changed.
Now, the United States accuses China of the very sort of illicit practices that helped America leapfrog European rivals two centuries ago and emerge as an industrial giant.
At first glance, I thought the story was about the Barbary Pirates. Had the whole thing been a CIA-driven false flag?! Heck, could be. It could be that Hamilton helped stage the “Revolution” as a power grab in order to build his new strong central government. Anything’s possible.
Some states, moved by ignorance or communism, are planning to seize guns – cause they can…
Nine states have passed laws over the past year allowing police or household members to seek court orders requiring people deemed threatening to temporarily surrender their guns, bringing the total to 14. Several more are likely to follow in the months ahead.
More than 1,700 orders allowing guns to be seized for weeks, months or up to a year were issued in 2018 by the courts after they determined the individuals were a threat to themselves or others, according to data from several states obtained by The Associated Press. The actual number is probably much higher since the data was incomplete and didn’t include California.
The laws gained momentum after it was learned that the young man accused in the Florida attack, Nikolas Cruz, was widely known to be mentally troubled yet had access to weapons, including the assault-style rifle used to kill 17 students and staff members last Valentine’s Day at Parkland’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
This is probably big with soccer mom and teevee watchers. Why stop with seizing only guns? To protect the children, is there anything not worth stealing??
