Mueller–the Secret Agent of the Deep State?

Share

by Martin Armstrong at Armstrong Economics

Robert Mueller’s team members are the people who destroyed Arthur Anderson. When the firm finally got to the Supreme Court, they overruled Mueller’s team for what they had done was unconstitutional. Well, they are back at it. This is what is wrong with our legal system. Prosecutors act with immunity and can do whatever they want FIRST and it is the burden of the great unwashed to go to court to argue what they have done was illegal. Then you cannot sue them. They are always ABOVE the law. That has to change if we are to go on a pretend we are a nation of free

Morgan Scarboro

In addition to the federal estate tax of 40 percent, some states impose an additional estate or inheritance tax. Twelve states and the District of Columbia impose an estate tax while six states have an inheritance tax. Maryland is the only state in the country to impose both.

Washington state’s 20 percent rate is the highest estate tax rate in the nation; eight states and DC are next with a top rate of 16 percent. Three states match the federal exemption level of $11.2 million.

Tax Freedom Day 2018 is April 19th

Share

Erica York/Tax Foundation

Key Findings Tax Freedom Day is a significant date for taxpayers and lawmakers because it represents how long Americans as a whole have to work in order to pay the nation’s tax burden. This year, Tax Freedom Day falls on April 19, 109 days into 2018. Tax Freedom Day will be three days earlier than it was in 2017, in large part due to the recent federal tax law, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which significantly lowered federal individual and corporate income taxes. In 2018, Americans will pay $3.4 trillion in federal taxes and $1.8 trillion in state and local taxes, for a total bill of $5.2 trillion, or 30 percent of the nation’s income. Americans will collectively

At the same time, gun-related jobs grew from an estimated 166,000 to nearly 310,000. An increase of

A gun-rights group is calling on the attorney general to cut federal funding from state and local governments that adopt policies that infringe on the Second Amendment.

“The liberal municipal governments of such cities as New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle, and states including New Jersey, Connecticut, California and Massachusetts should not be receiving taxpayer funds while violating the constitutional rights of those taxpayers,

MAN WITHOUT GUN STABS THREE IN INDIANAPOLIS

Share

D JOLLY/ GREATAMERICANPOLITICS

Ban guns to stop violence is the mantra of the liberal left. They blindly continue to argue that if guns were banned, it would go a long way to stop or reduce the number of violent crimes, as if it were guns that cause people to hurt other people.

Evidently, 57-year-old Gary Madison of Indianapolis failed to get the memo on violence from the liberal left as he pulled a knife, tried stabbing two women and then did stab three men who came to the rescue of the ladies.

No reason has been given for the knife attack, other than Madison acted strangely.

American producer, writer, political activist, and commentator Austin Petersen is fed up with hearing the whining from the little Communists and the big ones in our country as they attack our God-given rights and our Constitution. He has watched as they have advanced their agenda in DC and in the states and wants to stop playing defense with those who attack the Second Amendment and start playing offense. TIM BROWNFreedomOutpost

Seriously, we need more of this! Lots more of this! A US Senate candidate from Missouri has ruffled a lot of feather in both political parties, but for good reason and good cause after he called for “going on the offensive”
