Here it comes! We Warned You

Just when you thought they couldn’t go any lower……

If you have worked hard and own your home or even if you are still paying a mortgage, one Democratic Senator wants you to help pay the rent for others.

This is just one aspect of the socialist policy of redistribution or sharing of wealth. The redistribution of wealth is the socialist way of stealing from hard working people and those who are wealthy but not part of the elite and then giving PART of it to the lower class, while keeping the majority for the government.

In many socialist societies, there are not three classes of people. Instead of having a lower, middle and upper class, socialist societies usually have an elite class and then the working class, which in reality are slaves of the elite who control the government.

Socialists tend to win over the people by promising them many free things in life or like this senator, having others help pay for your rent. Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are traveling the country, promising voters that if Democrats gain control of Congress and eventually the White House, that they will provide free Medicare for all, free college tuition for all and mandatory minimum wage of $15 per hour.

What voters fail to understand is that nothing is free and the only way to pay for free Medicare and college tuition for all is to triple federal taxes – a common ploy used by socialists all over the world. They dupe the working class to fall for their promises and then the working class finds out too late what they bought into.

Another thing many American voters fail to understand is that the Democratic Party is really nothing more than a socialist party and one of their newer socialist champions is promoting another socialist policy.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is proposing that most Americans help pay the high rent of others. She says that people who pay 30% or more of their income on rent should receive help on those payments from those of us who own homes. Last week, Harris tweeted:

“Nationally, over 21M Americans spend more than 30% of their paychecks on rent. That’s absurd.”

“I introduced the #RentReliefAct to help ease the burden. This equals more money in people’s pockets at the end of the year.”

Her Rent Relief Act states that for anyone earning less than $100,000 a year who pays at least 30% of their income on rent (including utilities), would receive a tax credit at the end of the year. There is a caveat to the act that states that those people living in areas that are more expensive can make up to $125,000 a year and still receive the tax credit at the end of the year.

It’s estimated that up to 80% of American tax payers will end up paying more taxes to help pay the renters’ tax credit. I didn’t see anything in the act about homeowners who pay 30% or more of their income on their mortgages getting any help or exempting them from having to pay to help renters.

Harris is from the San Francisco area, which is a very expensive place to live, so naturally, she wants to help those in her own area, but it’s at the expense of the rest of America.

Harris has a net worth of least $2 million, so I wonder how much of her wealth she would be willing to give to help pay the rent of others?

New Pork Rules Could Outlaw Bacon in California

This would be an unforgivable overreach by the state government.

There are plenty of times in which Americans engage in a bit of exaggeration at the expense of our federal government.  It’s a defense mechanism, really, in which we are trained to extrapolate the worst possible outcome of any interaction with our elected officials, to guard against abuse at the hands of the tyrannical among us. Very rarely do these sorts of predictions come true.  Truly, this is just part of the American DNA, and it has deep roots in the caffeinated waters of Boston Harbor back in 1773. And if you thought that a new tax on tea was a flimsy enough excuse to rail against the oppressors, what happens when a state government outlaws bacon? At the beginning of next year, California will begin enforcing an animal welfare proposition approved overwhelmingly by voters in 2018 that requires more space for breeding pigs, egg-laying chickens and veal calves. National veal and egg producers are optimistic they can meet the new standards, but only 4% of hog operations now comply with the new rules. Unless the courts intervene or the state temporarily allows non-compliant meat to be sold in the state, California will lose almost all of its pork supply, much of which comes from Iowa, and pork producers will face higher costs to regain a key market. The threat is no hogwash, either. California’s restaurants and groceries use about 255 million pounds of pork a month, but its farms produce only 45 million pounds, according to Rabobank, a global food and agriculture financial services company. The National Pork Producers Council has asked the U.S. Department of Agriculture for federal aid to help pay for retrofitting hog facilities around the nation to fill the gap. Hog farmers said they haven’t complied because of the cost and because California hasn’t yet issued…

Pro-Trump PACs Rake in The Dough, Setting Former POTUS Up with Massive War Chest

The sheer value of Trump’s coffers is nigh unprecedented.

Despite his arbitrary removal from both Twitter and Facebook, former President Donald Trump continues to exude a great deal of sway over the American political ecosystem…and he’s only going to get more influential from here. Trump and his surrogates are still months away from officially announcing anything as far as 2024 goes, but, with the 2022 midterms just around the corner, the MAGA machine is already beginning to get tuned up. And let’s just say that there is plenty of fuel in the tank, too. Former President Donald Trump’s political committees brought in $82 million during the first half of 2021 and have $102 million in the bank, according to federal filings made public Saturday evening. The figures, shared first with POLITICO, underscore the profound reach of Trump’s fundraising power. While the former president is out of office and has been deplatformed on social media sites, he maintains a massive online donor network that he could lean on should he wage a 2024 comeback bid. The numbers are extraordinary, historically speaking. The scenario is virtually unprecedented: Never in history has a former president banked nine figures’ worth of donations to power a political operation. Over the first six months of the year, Trump’s political groups whipped up supporters with baseless claims of election fraud to pull in cash on a scale similar to the GOP’s official political arms, the Republican National Committee and the party’s House and Senate campaign committees. The numbers are undoubtedly troubling for liberals listening in from the left side of the aisle, as worries continue to grow about whether or not the Democrats have any shot at holding onto a majority in the House in 15 months’ time.
