Feds Collect Record Individual Income Taxes
Through August; Still Run $898B Deficit

Cybercast News, by Terrence P. Jeffrey

Original Article

Posted By:M2, 9/14/2018 7:13:21 AM

The federal government collected a record $1,521,589,000,000 in individual income taxes through the first eleven months of fiscal 2018 (October 2017 through August 2018), according to the Monthly Treasury Statement released today. However, the federal government also ran a deficit of $898,112,000,000 for those eleven months, according to the statement. Prior to this year, the record federal individual income tax collections for the first eleven months of the fiscal year occurred last year, when the Treasury collected $1,460,379,260,000 in individual income taxes in constant August 2018 dollars (adjusted using the Bureau of Labor Statistics inflation calculator).

Comments:
When you put more people back to work, they pay taxes. This is no surprise. But how to get that deficit down? May get our money back from Iran somehow?

If we had some real leaders in congress who spent $$$ like it was theirs instead of ours they could solve the deficit. There is over 898 billion in wasteful spending. Trump should appoint a committee to find the waste.

There are a few truths here which hardly anyone wants to reveal--

The government is TOO BIG, but nobody seems to care

The government BORROWS over 40 cents of every dollar spent because government is TOO BIG and SPENDS TOO MUCH

If we only spent what we bring in, we would be doing well, but we have areas of the money spent that are called ENTITLEMENTS, but we haven´t ever told anyone "NO"

The "open borders" supporters are INVITING an invasion to BREAK THE SYSTEM and national security is AT RISK

The deficit spending has been helped by LOW INTEREST RATES but when they go up, the debt will continue to rise like water coming into the boat with a hole in it out on the open sea

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS and the sell out of the MEDIA to the socialists means ALMOST NO politician will speak about the situation or face political ruin from fake innuendo and the media spin cycle

Until we find the WILL to stop spending money we don´t have, take charge of immigration at the border, and begin to curb welfare programs with solutions to have people work for their own money, NOTHING will change, and things will only get WORSE over time.

Post WW2 interest rates averaged 6-7%. When we reach that level again, just servicing the debt will exceed $1 Trillion/year.

The federal government is like a welfare mom with an unlimited credit card. Why stop spending when you can simply borrow more?

There is a fatal flaw in our system of government. What politician can get elected to office by promising to spend less money? As soon as you shut off one of the teets the dependent piglet begins to squeal.

The congress, who is responsible for spending, needs to cut back. The people. who are responsible for voting these venal clowns into office, needs to pay attention and not send profligate, constitution-ignoring, spenders to congress.

Let´s celebrate the fact that the Feds took MORE from the American public AFTER a "tax cut". Isn´t that grand? The point of a tax cut is NOT to generate more revenue, but to relieve over taxation. Higher revenue means MORE to the government, which means LESS to the public however it´s distributed. Cut taxes again and again. The goal is to starve the government of funds...although nearly all see spending cuts as happening to the other guy´s favorite programs...from welfare to military spending.

Giuliani doesn’t deny Trump campaign

Market Watch, by Mike Murphy    Original Article

Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal attorney, said he doesn’t deny that the Trump campaign may have colluded with Russians in the 2016 election — only that Donald Trump himself did not. Speaking on CNN on Wednesday night, Giuliani claimed he has only said Trump himself was not involved in collusion. “There is not a single bit of evidence the President of the United States committed the only crime you can commit here, conspiring with the Russians to hack the DNC,” he said. Giuliani also said Trump has never denied there was no collusion,

The New York Times has never been a big fan of Israel, or non-assimilated and non-leftist Jews for that matter. But it’s hard to escape the impression that the Times has decided to intensify its hostile stance towards Israel, Israeli Jews, and American Jews who support Israel. These efforts take two forms. First, the Times whitewashes Israel’s enemies. Last month, the paper published a paean to Hezbollah, Iran’s Lebanese terror army, which controls Lebanon and remains the most powerful and dangerous terror organization in the world. In an article ostensibly about Christmas celebrations in Beirut, the paper singled out Hezbollah for praise for

Since January 1, neither CNN nor MSNBC has booked a single “Angel Mom” — mothers of children brutally murdered by illegal aliens — as guests on their networks, per an analysis conducted by the Republican National Committee (RNC). The RNC told Breitbart News it has tracked both networks since the beginning of the year as they intensely bash President Donald Trump over the government shutdown that is now the longest ever in the history of the United States. Since the turn of the year to 2019 from 2018, neither network has conducted a single interview with any family members of victims

Support for Trump´s wall
reaches all-time high: Poll
Washington Examiner, by Daniel Chaitin    Original Article

Support for President Trump´s wall along the U.S.-Mexico border is at an all-time high weeks into a partial government shutdown which began over a border security dispute for funding. According to the results of an ABC News and Washington Post poll released Sunday morning, 42 percent of Americans support a wall. That is up from 34 percent one year ago and a previous high of 37 percent in 2017. With 54 percent, the majority poll still oppose building a border wall. However, that opposition is shrinking, as 63 percent opposed the wall a year ago and the previous low was

Donald Trump Jr. put CNN´s Jim Acosta in his place on Thursday in response to the White House correspondent taking a swipe at him on social media after being roundly mocked over videos he posted on his Twitter account. Acosta visited the border in McAllen, Texas, ahead of President Donald Trump´s visit, and decided to try to prove that the president was wrong about the border. The result was Acosta unintentionally demonstrating that border walls made the area safer. "I found some steel slats down on the border," Acosta tweeted. "But I don’t see anything resembling a national

During a heated debate about illegal immigration with former Donald Trump adviser Steve Cortes Wednesday on CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime,” network commentator Ana Navarro took to filing her nails. The segment began with Cortes and Navarro, a staunch critic of the president, reacting to Donald Trump, Jr.’s now-deleted tweet that said zoos work because they have walls. “At the end of the day, Donald Trump, Jr., and whatever he says, can I just file my nails? This is an entitled, rich, spoiled little brat whose only call to fame is being his daddy’s son,” Navarro said.

Fertility rates for white women were down in every US state in 2017 - below the rate needed for the population to replace itself, a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reveals. However, among black and Hispanic women, fertility rates were up in 12 and 29 states, respectively. When researchers looked at fertility rates for women of all age groups and races, they found that the nationwide rate was 16 percent lower than what is considered the level for a population to replace itself. Experts say this is likely due to the fact that the

There are so many contrived outrages in a given week, let alone a year, that it can be hard to recall any individual instance of outrage after it has already passed. But the infamous Starbucks bathroom outrage was so phony, so absurd, and so disconnected from anything resembling logic or reason, that it deserves to be remembered. In case you need a refresher course: a Starbucks manager at a location in Philadelphia came under heavy fire last spring after refusing restroom privileges to two non-customers. The men, who happened to be black, asked to use the restroom...

Is Michelle Obama Plotting to Take

Recently, the mainstream media gleefully reported something that many at first dismissed, quickly passing it off as nothing more than a transient morsel of cultural trivia, if not fake news. Allegedly, a recent Gallup Poll not only bestowed upon Michelle Obama the honor of being The Most Admired Woman in 2018,but also thereby declared her to be more popular than Hillary and Oprah! I would suggest this news might represent an ominous bellwether of measurable import to all of us who are hoping to see President Trump elected to a second term.

In spite of policy differences on social issues—from gay rights to gun control to abortion—the steadying core of modern-day conservatism always has been the defense of the individual over the state. During the Reagan era, the movement witnessed in real time how the disassembling of statist economic policies could resuscitate a fossilized free-market system to the benefit of nearly all Americans. Before Reagan’s election, libertarian economist Milton Friedman warned that our economic freedom is threatened constantly by the capriciousness and self-interest of politicians and their special interest benefactors—and that was not okay: “Both the fragmentation of power and the conflicting government

On Tuesday night, President Trump will deliver a prime-time address to the nation “on the Humanitarian and National Security crisis on our Southern border.” It will be his first big address from the Oval Office, a signal that the president recognizes, at least on this issue, that to succeed he must reach beyond his base to rally the American people. He further promises to travel to the border Thursday to “meet with those on the front lines.” The Oval Office speech and trip to the border suggest the stakes are rising as the government shutdown is now in its third week.

The leader of the Russian Orthodox Church has said that humans’ dependence on modern technology will result in the coming of the Antichrist. In an interview with Russian state media, Patriarch Kirill explained he does not entirely oppose gadgets, but warned against “falling into slavery” to smartphones. Patriarch Kirill said that the collection of user data including “location, interests and fears” will make it possible for humans to be controlled by external forces. “Control from a single point is a harbinger of the coming of the Antichrist,” Kirill told the state-run Rossia-1 TV network on Orthodox Christmas Monday.

Gillette is doubling down on a controversial new campaign that appears aimed at taking on so-called toxic masculinity — but has created a social media firestorm. The two-minute video from Boston-based razor brand Gillette urges men to act against sexual harassment, misogyny and bullying, asking: “Is this the best a man can get?” While fans are applauding the move, critics say it assumes men need to be steered away from negative tendencies.

The federal government shutdown has presented a unique opportunity for President Donald Trump to clear out the deadwood in the federal bureaucracy, saving U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars in salaries, perks, and rented office space for people who aren´t doing anything productive. At the same time, Trump can get rid of dozens, possibly even hundreds of Deep State operatives in the government, handpicked by Barack Obama and Bill Clinton for their loyalty to the Democratic Party, not their country or the law. These people leak like a screen door in a submarine, mainly to CNN and MSNBC, the twin headquarters

A near majority of Republicans do not have a favorable view of freshman Senator Willard “Mitt” Romney (R-UT), according to a PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll released on Thursday. The poll, conducted January 10-13, found 48% of “Republicans and conservative-leaning” have an “unfavorable” view Romney. Just 29% view Romney favorably while another 23% are “unsure” or “never heard” of him. Never Trumpers like Bill Kristol have said Romney is now the “leader of the Republican Resistance to” President Donald Trump, and the PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll again shows how unpopular of a label that is among Republicans.

In the latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll released Thursday, President Donald Trump may have suffered some among Republicans overall, but he saw a huge point gain in a different demographic breakdown, and an unexpected one by conventional wisdom. In early December, the poll had Trump’s approval rating among Latino adults at 31%. The results from the poll released Thursday show the president’s job approval among Latino adults at 50%. That is an astonishing 19 point swing. Prior results had less variance, with Latino approval numbers at 36% in their November 1st findings. It was 27% in the pollster’s mid-October survey.
