Massachusetts´ millionaires could make
run for tax-friendly climates

Boston Herald (MA), by Brian Dowling

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/16/2017 8:45:22 PM

The so-called millionaires tax being added to next year’s November ballot is raising concerns that hiking rates on the Bay State’s most moneyed few might backfire on the budget as the rich seek shelter in Florida or New Hampshire. Pioneer Institute Research Director Greg Sullivan said his staff is looking at data from the state Department of Revenue to predict whether the proposed change would trigger such a migration. “There have been dueling economic studies extending back decades about the subject of tax flight. Is it real?” Sullivan said. “This is a very substantial, legitimate question that should be forensically

#1 - Try New Hampshire. No sales or income taxes but property taxes are about 2% of a houses value.

Parliament has been hit by a ´sustained and determined cyber attack´ that has led to MPs and peers being locked out of their emails. News of the attack surfaced on Friday night, with parliamentarians reporting issues getting into their email accounts today. Lib Dem peer Baron Rennard tweeted: ´Cyber security attack on Westminster Parliamentary e-mails may not work remotely text urgent messages.´ Scroll down for video (Photos) Ian Austin, MP for Dudley, also reported his emails were down moments after Lord Rennard´s tweet.

MSNBC Host Fudges Facts On
Planned Parenthood [Video]

Posted By: JoniTx- 6/24/2017 2:42:15     Post Reply
MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle incorrectly stated Friday that Planned Parenthood has had “huge increases” in the number of essential women’s health services they provide. Florida Rep. Francis Rooney was arguing for defunding Planned Parenthood on “Velshi & Ruhle,” and stated that Planned Parenthood has decreased its non-abortion activities, which is consistent with Planned Parenthood’s own statistics. Ruhle challenged his claim, rebutting, “I don’t know where you read that but I don’t believe that’s true based on our reporting and what we cover.” (Snip) Planned Parenthood’s own annual report, published on May 26, disagrees with her. The statistics from that report indicate

A secretive Washington firm that commissioned the dubious intelligence dossier on Donald Trump is stonewalling congressional investigators trying to learn more about its connections to the Democratic Party. The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS, after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier, which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House. What is the company hiding? Fusion GPS describes itself as a “research and strategic intelligence firm” founded by “three former Wall

Supreme Court Limits Rights Of Property Owners
Daily Caller, by Kevin Daley    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/24/2017 1:29:00     Post Reply
The Supreme Court constrained the rights of property owners Friday, establishing a test that favors government officials in assessing the loss of property value caused by government regulations. Writing for a 5-3 court, Justice Anthony Kennedy explained that state and local officials can combine separate parcels of land in assessing whether local government has effectively seized private property through regulation, requiring compensation. Kennedy’s opinion was joined by Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan. Chief Justice John Roberts filed a fiery dissent, joined by Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito. The case concerned a Wisconsin family

Southwest L.A. loves ´Obama Boulevard´

Even though it runs through the heart of L.A’.s Baldwin Hills/Crenshaw neighborhood, most Angelenos would be hard pressed to locate Rodeo Road on a map. In fact, they’d probably point to its ritzy doppelganger — Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive — instead. That may change very soon, however. Residents here are cheering a proposal to rename the asphalt thoroughfare in honor of former President Obama, who visited here when he was a U.S. senator. The news that southwest L.A.´s Rodeo Road may soon be renamed “Obama Boulevard" was received positively by residents of the surrounding Crenshaw district. "I´m so happy, that

WASHINGTON— The Supreme Court enters its final week of work before a long summer hiatus with action expected on the Trump administration´s travel ban and a decision due in a separation of church and state case that arises from a Missouri church playground. The biggest news of all, though, would be if Justice Anthony Kennedy were to use the court´s last public session on Monday to announce his retirement. To be sure, Kennedy has given no public sign that he will retire this year and give President Donald Trump his second high court pick in the first months of his

Oregon House Passes “Sanctuary State” Bill

As reported earlier in the week, the Oregon legislature is moving full-speed-ahead with an illegal alien protection bill that would make Oregon a “sanetuary state”. The local media, of course, lauds the bill with puff piece headlines of “Oregon lawmakers aim to boost protection of immigrants” and “Oregon House votes to expand privacy for undocumented immigrants.” The bill, HB 3464, passed the House by a vote of 35-23, down party lines, with 2 Republicans excused for the day. Oregonian For Immigration Reform head Cynthia Kendoll penned an op-ed in the Statesman Journal: Today, the House of Representatives’ Democratic majority goes

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told Democrats Friday to dig up and air stories about the “devastating impact” that a GOP plan to replace Obamacare could have on the most vulnerable, as Republicans try to pin down votes and fulfill their repeal promise before the July 4 holiday. “No argument against Trumpcare is more eloquent than the grave consequences it means in people’s lives, especially for our children, veterans, seniors, people with pre-existing conditions and rural hospitals,” the California Democrat said in a “dear colleagues” letter. Senate Republicans released a draft bill Thursday that, while softening the edges on an

Watching MSNBC, I heard Chris Hayes list several bogus excuses for Ossoff losing in Georgia. Hayes placed Karen Handel receiving outside funds high on his list. I thought, Are you kidding me? Fake news media are committed 24/7 to deceiving Americans. Blocking Trump from implementing his and our agenda and impeaching him have become their sole reasons for existence. Ninety-five percent of Ossoff´s $23-million campaign funds came from outside Georgia. Ossoff is the candidate who was overwhelmingly funded by outsiders, not Handel. Handel´s campaign spent a fraction of what Ossoff´s campaign spent. Chris Hayes clearly lied, dispensing more fake news.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough has released a new video with his eponymous band to offer commentary on America in the age of President Trump. The host of “Morning Joe” released the EP “Mystified” on his official Facebook page Friday, which features the pundit and his fiancée Mike Brzezinski sitting on a couch while a chaotic montage flickers across the screen. “I’ve been looking inside, and I’ve been mystified by what I saw,” Mr. Scarborough sings. “I’ve been looking inside, and I’ve been terrified by who I saw.” “TrumpWorld Culture on the Skids in the music video to the title track of

President Trump noted that James Comey and Robert Mueller are “very, very good friends…which is bothersome.” So the Associated Press sprang into action to defend the two men now locked in a death struggle with the president. The AP vouches for the extraordinary, perhaps unprecedented, integrity of the men who are trying to bring down our duly elected president. In the AP’s telling, they are: …somber-faced and demanding… …more approachable and outwardly affable… …both command a wealth of respect in the law enforcement and legal community. …both known for their integrity and self-assuredness… …Comey describ[ed] Mueller as “one of the

California is restricting publicly funded travel to four more states because of recent laws that leaders here view as discriminatory against gay and transgender people. All totaled, California now bans most state-funded travel to eight states. The new additions to California’s restricted travel list are Texas, Alabama, Kentucky and South Dakota. They join Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee as states already subjected to the ban. California Attorney Xavier Becerra announced the new states at a Thursday press conference, where he was joined by representatives from ACLU Northern California and Equality California.

(Facebook) - Former President Barack Obama took to Facebook to ask Republicans to reconsider their efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. "I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party," Obama wrote. "Still, I hope that our senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what’s really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did." He argued that the Republican health care bill

Most illegal immigrants who pay taxes have stolen someone else’s legal identity, and the IRS doesn’t do a very good job of letting those American citizens and legal immigrants know they’re being impersonated, the tax agency’s inspector general said in a new report released Thursday. The theft creates major problems for the American citizens and legal foreign workers whose identities are stolen, and who have to deal with explaining money they never earned. But the IRS only manages to identify half of the potentially 1.4 million people likely affected by the fraud in 2015, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax

That’s also an example of what happens when President Trump’s ‘Monster Vote‘ turns out.

The deadly collision between a U.S. destroyer and a container ship June 17 took place while the freighter was on autopilot, according to Navy officials. The Philippines-flagged cargo ship ACX Crystal was under control of a computerized navigation system that was steering and guiding the container vessel, according to officials familiar with preliminary results of an ongoing Navy investigation. Investigators so far found no evidence the collision was deliberate. Nevertheless, an accident during computerized navigation raises the possibility the container ship´s computer system could have been hacked and the ship deliberately steered into the USS Fitzgerald, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer.

President Obama has been out of office only a few months. But he might have both a street and an L.A. freeway named after him soon. Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson has proposed renaming Rodeo Road in southwest L.A. “Obama Boulevard” in honor of the president. Wesson noted that Obama held a campaign rally at Rancho Cienega Park on Rodeo Road when running for president and that the area already has streets named after presidents (Washington, Jefferson, Adams). In May, a plan to name a stretch of the 134 Freeway after Obama moved forward with approval from the

Eaarly last August, an envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried “eyes only” instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: President Barack Obama and three senior aides. Inside was an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race. But it went further. The intelligence captured Putin’s specific instructions on the operation’s audacious objectives — defeat or at least damage the Democratic nominee,

ST. LOUIS - The insurance company for the city of Ferguson, Missouri, paid $1.5 million to settle a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Michael Brown´s parents, the city attorney said Friday. Attorney Apollo Carey disclosed the amount in an email in response to an open records request. The settlement of the federal lawsuit was announced Tuesday, but financial details were not initially released. Carey declined further comment on the settlement. A phone message seeking comment from the attorney for the family, Anthony Gray, was not immediately returned. Brown, 18, was black and unarmed when he was fatally shot by white officer Darren Wilson

The televised White House news briefing, after emerging as a can’t-miss ritual of the early days of the Trump administration, has in recent weeks become shorter, less informative and less accessible, with some of the briefings declared off-limits to live broadcasting.
