Americans know that Joe Biden wants to raise their taxes, but they might not realize he'll be coming for their money even after they're dead. In The Wall Street Journal, Richard Rubin and Rachel Louise Ensign outline Biden's plan, writing: President Biden has proposed raising the top capital-gains tax rate to 43.4% from 23.8% and taxing appreciated assets at death as if they had been sold. Under current law, appreciated assets held until death escape the income tax. Heirs pay capital-gains taxes only when they sell and only on gains since the prior owner’s death. Tax lawyers are looking … [Read more...]
The Great Reset
Are you ready for the Great Reset?
It’s coming soon. Just wait until you see what they can do to the value of your money, the environment, and your children’s education.
In May (stay informed daily with me right here), the Masters of the Universe will meet up in Singapore. The not-so-secret Great Reset is at the top of their Agenda (it even has its own website: www.weforum.org/great-reset/). The 2021 theme agenda is “A Crucial Year to Rebuild Trust.” These elites see disasters like the China Virus as “opportunities” to change your world to their liking.
Think it can’t happen? Look at what a religion Global Warming has become. The Green New Dealers kneel at the altar of Bernie Sanders. It’s a dream come true. Socialism is alive and well. And life as we know it isn’t going back to the way it was. (Do you ever think you’ll fly abroad again without being masked, tracked, or harassed in some way?)
Stay informed here (I’ll have the Great Reset covered cold). Remember, protecting your freedom is a constant battle. And your freedom isn’t free.
Look, I want you to be a happy, long-term investor. It would be easy for both of us if I told you to just buy an index fund, set it, and forget it. That approach may have worked well in the past, but I have concerns moving forward. When the late, great, founding-father of indexing Jack Bogle expressed dismay for his creation on his deathbed, I paid attention. Only a few months before he died, Bogle wrote, “Three index fund managers dominate the field with a collective 81% share of index fund assets: Vanguard has a 51% share; BlackRock, 21%; and State Street Global, 9%. Such domination … [Read more...]
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy castigated Rep. Liz Cheney for her continued pestering of President Trump, rather than focusing on winning the House back in 2022, something that should be at the top of Cheney's mind given her role as Republican Conference Chairwoman. Rather than recognize the anger of GOP voters towards her, Cheney has opted instead to please big corporate donors and neocon Never-Trumpers who are friends with her father. Brittany Bernstein reports in National Review: Representative Liz Cheney (R., Wyo.) doubled down on her criticism of former President Donald … [Read more...]
Originally posted on February 5, 2021. You know they’re coming after your guns through HR 127. They’re calling for a Great Reset because of a so-called climate crisis. And what they say they’re doing, making you safer and protecting the environment, does anything but that. Tens of thousands of jobs will be lost, you won’t be able to defend yourself, and prices will go through the roof. Not to mention the environment won’t be any better when the real problem is China and other bad actors that become stronger from our missteps. Let’s ruin an environmentally friendly pipeline so we can send … [Read more...]
A client/friend shared this story with me about how frozen food got its start by Elizabeth Nix. From packages of waffles to bags of peas, the myriad items found in the frozen-food section of grocery stores today owe their existence, in part, to Clarence Birdseye, who in the 1920s developed a quick-freezing process that launched the modern frozen-food industry. Between 1912 and 1917, Birdseye, a Brooklyn native, lived in chilly Labrador, Canada, where he worked briefly on a hospital ship before started a fox-breeding venture. It was during this period that he learned about the customs of … [Read more...]
Getting the Covid vaccine is a personal health decision. If you have questions about it you should be able to get some straight answers, don’t you think? But that’s not what’s happening. Tucker Carlson explains (abridged): Anyone who tells you the details of the ongoing Potemkin impeachment trial are important is probably trying to distract you from something that actually is, like our ongoing COVID pandemic. After months of hearing that life could never return to normal until we get a vaccine, we got a vaccine (two, actually), but life did not return to normal. In fact, life got worse. We … [Read more...]
Once you dig through the arrogance, you begin to see exactly what’s happening in the Great Reset. It was right in front of our eyes as the election rules were changed by the so-called "woke," to cancel votes. And they say with a straight face the only way to deal with opposing views is the cancel them. You know, just delete what they say—Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg style. A recent article in TIME, by Molly Ball gives away perhaps more of the strategy the woke left used to game the election than they would have liked. One stunning revelation in the piece was just how much control … [Read more...]
On January 27, amidst media consensus that the “Proud Boys” and other right-wing organizations had organized the Capitol riots, a former federal prosecutor turned over federal court proceedings to Reuters showing that the Proud Boys’ national leader, one Enrique Tarrio, was “an informer for federal and local law enforcement.” But Tarrio was not at the Capitol riot. Nor is there any evidence that anyone in his organization did anything to organize it. This much is clear: the FBI knew everything that this little group was doing, and has had at least some hand in what the Proud Boys have and … [Read more...]
During his first days in office, President Biden has demonstrated that he puts the priorities of the billionaire creators of the Great Reset ahead of the livelihoods of the American people he is supposed to represent. A major plank of the Great Reset platform is reducing or ending fossil fuel use. Joe Biden's opening attack on the oil industry shows that he's willing to do the bidding of the Davos billionaires, despite what it means for American jobs and the cost of living of poor and middle class Americans who will suffer the higher prices of fuel and energy. David Baker and Ari Natter … [Read more...]
