Trump´s $33 Billion Tax Cut
You Didn´t Know You Just Got

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Regulation: In a recent editorial, we noted that President Trump´s decision to get rid of President Obama´s Clean Power Plan would be a major money-saver for companies and a deregulatory boost for the economy. Now, new data actually put a dollar figure on it. Senior Trump officials now estimate that the president´s decision will save consumers some $33 billion. No, they won´t get a big notice on their monthly bill saying: "You saved $X amount this month, thanks to repeal of the Clean Power Act." But the money will go into their pocket nonetheless, since they will avoid paying the much-higher

The raid on our pocket books has been underway in the Northwest for some time. Supplier Puget Power embraced the alternative energy ideology and their most recent dumb decision to sever connection with a coal company in Montana speaks to another round of billing increases, done deal, no chance to contest their monopolistic decision.

#2 - the other thing Puget Power did a few years ago was to turn down a proposal from a company that wanted to build a coal fired power plant in Skagit (?) county. They now pay a much higher rate from a Canadian coal fired plant.

A Rasmussen poll taken in 2013 asked American adults, "Are most white Americans racist?" "Are most Hispanic Americans racist?" and "Are most black Americans racist?" Of the three groups, the winner was blacks. Thirty-seven percent said most blacks were racist; 18% felt most Hispanics were racist; and 15% said most whites were racist. Thirty-eight percent of whites felt most blacks were racist. Even blacks agreed, with 31% saying most blacks were racist, while 24% of blacks thought most whites racist and 15% believed most Hispanics were racist. This brings us to the Cornell University´s Black Students United and whether the organization is engaging

GOP´s Loss Was A Real Wake-Up

Election 2018: No question about it, the GOP took a real shellacking in Tuesday´s off-year vote, losing key elections in Virginia, New York and New Jersey. Republicans have been put on notice for 2018: Do your job, or go home. Democrats ran what was for them a smart but unprincipled, bare-knuckled campaign. They smeared moderate Republicans as racists and white-power advocates, while largely avoiding making their campaigns about issues. It worked: They won 16 seats in the Virginia legislature and the state´s governorship, re-elected a failed socialist mayor in New York, and took back New Jersey´s gubernatorial mansion from departing Republican

Regulations: Few people following ObamaCare paid any attention to section 4205 of the law, which requires chain restaurants and vending machines to post calorie labels. But this little-noticed provision is a testament to the folly of central planning. This Tuesday, the FDA released a "guidance document" on its calorie count regulations that is meant to help restaurants, delis, pizza joints, buffets and the like figure out how to comply with this ObamaCare mandate. All it did was show how ridiculous the whole effort is. Democrats added the calorie mandate to ObamaCare on the assumption that forcing restaurant chains to put

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the Democratic Party are trying to torpedo the biggest tax cut since 1986. Schumer accuses GOP tax cutters of "messing up the good economy the president inherited from President Obama and hurting the middle class." The senator must think we´re stupid. The Obama economy wasn´t "good." It was lousy, sputtering along at a pathetic 2.1%, far below the 3.8% norm for this nation. Who got clobbered? The middle class, who had to settle for almost no increase in wages and disappointing job prospects. The Tax Cut and Jobs Act, unveiled by House Republicans on Thursday,

Marxism: One hundred years is a long time, certainly long enough to know whether something works. In the case of communism, now passing its 100th year as a political system, it´s safe to say it has had its chance and now ranks as one of the greatest disasters of all humankind. Tuesday marked the day the Bolsheviks overthrew Russia´s czar and the elected government, leading to the first communist "nation," the Soviet Union. Eventually, billions of people in Eastern Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America would be enslaved by this oppressive system. Yes, the Soviet Union disappeared in 1991, a victim, as

Why Calling Electric Cars ´Zero

Environment: If truth-in-advertising laws were properly enforced, any company that labeled a battery-powered car as "zero emissions" would be guilty of breaking the law. A new report, in fact, shows that electric cars can be worse than conventional cars when it comes to greenhouse gas emissions. In a recent news release, General Motors (GM) said it planned to someday be an all-electric "zero emissions" car company. Toyota (TM) says it wants all its cars to be "zero emission" by 2050. Other car companies are making similar promises. The push to go electric is largely being driven by fears about global

1 Year After Trump Election — Less Stress,

One year after his surprise victory in the 2016 elections, President Trump´s approval rating remains mired in the mid-30s, while half the public say he has met or exceeded their expectations as president, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll. The poll also finds that the public´s outlook has improved on a variety of measures in the past year. The November poll asked people whether the Trump presidency so far has met, exceeded or fallen short of expectations. Forty percent say Trump has met their expectations and 10% say he´s exceeded them; 46% say Trump has fallen short of what they

Nuclear Attack: IBD/TIPP Poll

North Korean Nukes: Why did President Trump suddenly go wheels-up on a grueling, 12-day Asian tour? As new polling data suggests, it might be because North Korea has suddenly emerged as a major nuclear threat in the eyes of most Americans. In the November IBD/TIPP Poll, taken from Oct. 26 to Nov. 3, 73% said they were "very concerned" or "somewhat concerned" about the "possibility of a nuclear attack by North Korea against the U.S. or its allies." The national poll of 917 adult Americans has a margin of error of +/-3.7 percentage points. Recent news developments no doubt feed this growing




The GOP´s Boneheaded ´Bubble´ Tax
Will Pave The Way To Higher Tax Rates
Investor’s Business Daily, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: RockyTCB- 11/7/2017 6:53:39     Post Reply
Tax Reform: In the House Republicans´ tax cut bill, there´s an odd 45.6% "bubble" tax rate that kicks in for millionaires. If history is any guide, this bubble will soon become the foundation for future tax hikes. The bubble tax is basically an attempt to take away the initial 12% tax bracket from wealthy taxpayers. Under the House plan, a family making between $1.2 million and $1.6 million would pay a 6% surcharge on income in that range, on top of the 39.6% rate they´d already face. That way, the tax cut will be more "fair." Remember: The original plan would cut

Global Hot Air: Here´s a United Nations climate report that environmentalists probably don´t want anybody to read. It says that even if every country abides by the grand promises they made last year in Paris to reduce greenhouse gases, the planet would still be "doomed." When President Obama hitched America to the Paris accords in 2016, he declared that it was "the moment that we finally decided to save our planet." And when Trump pulled out of the deal this year, he was berated by legions of environmentalists for killing it. But it turns out that the Paris accord was little more

GOP´s Tax Reform: Despite Flaws,

Taxes: The House Republicans´ new tax plan may well be, as the New York Times would have it, "the most sweeping rewrite of the tax code in decades." And it is certainly a major improvement on the current dysfunctional monstrosity that has been put in place over three decades. Yet it falls far short of what it could be. While we will support the GOP´s $1.51 trillion tax reform, dubbed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, it is an imperfect vehicle for true reform of the tax code. Let´s start with its flawed underlying premise: In order to cut taxes for some,

All five living former Presidents recently came together at a benefit concert for victims of this year´s devastating hurricanes. A month earlier, they broadcast an appeal for Americans to donate for hurricane relief efforts. [snip] But the former Presidents´ records of expanding government belie their rhetoric about the generosity of Americans. In the case of President Carter, in 1978, he created FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, displacing, in some cases, much of the local, state and private sector assistance that the distressed once relied on. But after Carter established FEMA, something interesting occurred. The country experienced an uptick in declared

A day before Donald Trump arrived in Beijing for crucial talks, China arrested 3 prominent African-American athletes. It would be awful if this became a racial issue today back home.

If standard practices are applied, the three UCLA basketball players – including LiAngelo Ball – arrested Tuesday in mainland China under suspicion of shoplifting face between three and 10 years in prison if convicted, according to Chinese lawyers who briefed Yahoo Sports on the applicable laws. The sentencing guidelines could shift depending on the amount that the Chinese could prove was allegedly stolen. Authorities believe the players shoplifted from a Louis Vuitton store near the UCLA team hotel outside of Shanghai. The Bruins are in China to play Georgia Tech on Saturday in the season opener.

When California lawmakers return to the Capitol in January, the state chapter of the NAACP will be seeking their support for a campaign to remove “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the national anthem. The organization last week began circulating among legislative offices two resolutions that passed at its state conference in October: one urging Congress to rescind “one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon” as the national anthem, and another in support of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who launched a protest movement against police brutality among professional athletes by kneeling when “The Star-Spangled

Maybe it was that whole “low energy” thing. In surprisingly undiplomatic terms for elder statesmen, George W. Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush, bash President Trump in a soon-to-be released book. While both of the former presidents vowed when they left office not to speak ill of their successors — a pledge they’ve kept for the most part — there’s just something about Donald J.

The results are in and New Jersey and Virginia have elected new Democratic governors. In New Jersey, former Goldman Sachs executive and Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy expectedly defeated Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno by an estimated margin of as many as 14 points, and in Virginia, Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam defeated former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie by an estimated 7-to-8-point margin. Surely, New Jersey’s swing to a Democratic governor is a product of an unpopular outgoing Republican governor, Chris Christie, and President Trump’s unpopularity in the state as well. Further, outgoing Republican Governor Christie has the dubious status as New Jersey’s
