After Jerry Brown Disobeys Trump’s Direct Order, Donald Swings The Hammer Hard

Published

on

Jerry Brown has made many questionable decisions during his time as Governor in California. His state is often criticized for some of the things they do such as attempting to ban plastic straws and reducing the criminality of purposely giving someone HIV. With people like Maxine Waters working in the 43rd district and parts of California being smeared in feces and needles, it’s no wonder the massive west coast state is the center of yet another controversy.

President Donald Trump and the U.S. Treasury Department are putting the foot down on California. No more cutting corners or finding loopholes for them! It appears that California was trying to avoid the new $10,000 limit on state and local tax deductions. They were attempting this by claiming taxes are charitable donations. Not so fast, said the government!

Trump originally promised that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act would have a tax-reform package that cut some of the tax burdens for the average family of four who earns $75,000, cutting the burden of taxes by a reported $2,000. It also was supposed to increase the household income by about $4,000 through various cuts on business. The business corporate tax rate was 35%, but then slashed down to 21%, allowing companies to invest more income on their product and employees.

Breitbart reported further, stating:

“To fund part of the resulting revenue loss, the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives limited federal deductions for state and local taxes (SALT) to $10,000 for the first time. The move hammered high income tax-payers in Democrat-dominated high-tax blue states like California, Illinois, New York and New Jersey.

According to the Tax Policy Institute, the first-time ever cap on SALT deductions was expected to generate $36.1 billion more in federal tax collections in 2018. But the pain to high-income tax-payers in California and the other so-called “deep-blue” states doubles to $74.5 billion in 2021 and almost triples to $100.4 billion by 2025.

Four days after Trump’s tax reform took effect on January 1, then-State Senate leader Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) proposed “SB-227 Education finance: Local Schools and Colleges Voluntary Contribution Fund” to allow any Californian that had more than $10,000 in state and local tax deductions to make a dollar-for-dollar charitable donation to the “California Excellence Fund” for a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit to avoid the SALT limits.

De Leon, who is running for U.S. Senate, tried to justify draining federal taxes to the San Jose Mercury News: “The Republican tax plan gives corporations and hedge-fund managers a trillion-dollar tax cut and expects California taxpayers to foot the bill,” He added, “We won’t allow California residents to be the casualty of this disastrous tax scheme.”

Although federal law allows charitable deductions for over-payment of taxes to those each year that want to donate to help pay down public debt or maintain a park under IRC § 170, the contributions must be “solely for public purposes.”

But Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin released a statement on August 23 indicating that California’s “charity” was a scheme to avoid paying federal taxes: “Congress limited the deduction for state and local taxes that predominantly benefited high-income earners to help pay for major tax cuts for American families.” He added, “The proposed rule will uphold that limitation by preventing attempts to convert tax payments into charitable contributions.”

The new U.S. Treasury-proposed rule, according to The Hill, would only allow taxpayers to claim the federal charitable deduction under “quid pro quo” guidelines for the amount of donations that exceeds the amount they received in tax credits.

As an example, if the taxpayer donated $1,000 to the California SB-227 state charity and received a 50 percent state tax credit, the taxpayer would only be able to claim a federal charitable deduction of $500, according to the Treasury Secretary.

Mnuchin emphasized that the Treasury Department has projected that 90 percent of U.S. taxpayers that do not file tax returns with standard deductions will not be impacted by the SALT limits. The 5 percent of U.S. taxpayers who file itemized returns with income tax deductions above the $10,000 will be unable to exploit the charitable deduction to avoid the SALT cap.”

If people want to keep talking about the taxes, then let them. As long as people play by the rules and businesses invest in their employees, then the working Americans will benefit.

If Trump cuts the tax rates from 35% to 21%, then that’s amazing and gives businesses 14% of their income back to their company. That was money that was taken by the government, proving that taxation is indeed theft. There’s no reason why a large business should ever pay more than a third in taxes. In fact, no one should.

If you live in a Democrat-controlled city, then what are your taxes like? Does your mayor tax you like crazy? Mine does. Philadelphia’s Mayor Kenney seems like he taxes his own taxes sometimes. We have a sugary drink tax in Philadelphia that has put people nearly out of business, hurting the small business owners who run corner stores in the city.

We can’t complain that taxation is theft and then not be happy with a 35% to 21% tax break. Anyone who isn’t happy with that might need to rethink their train of thought.

Getting back 14% more of your income means you can spend less time finding loopholes and more time improving your business.

President Trump Announced How He Just Got Mexico To Pay For The Wall

When President Trump said he would have Mexico pay for the wall on our southern border, he meant it. He just announced how they are going to do it too… through the USMCA (the revision of NAFTA). Which I suspect was the plan all along.

Very early this morning at about 4:38 am, Trump tweeted: “I often stated, “One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the Wall.” This has never changed. Our new deal with Mexico (and Canada), the USMCA, is so much better than the old, very costly & anti-USA NAFTA deal, that just by the money we save, MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL!”

For those doubters on Twitter (and you will see some of them below), I highly doubt the plan was ever to have Mexico pay for the wall up front. We would fund the wall and recoup the funding from Mexico. I don’t see what is so hard to understand about that. But it seems to be a financial move many can’t seem to grasp and that is beyond their comprehension.

SIGN PETITION DEMANDING TRUMP BUILD THE WALL 75,000 HAVE SIGNED

I fully support that if Congress just won’t fund the wall, having the military build it through Pentagon funding and then reimbursing them for it. Why? Because it is a national security issue and always has been. That border is a clear and present danger.

Why shouldn’t Trump have Mexico pay through the USMCA? And why all the negativity from people who are obviously poorly informed and just politically biased? They let their hate for the president dictate all their thoughts and actions rather than looking at the mechanics of the move and the benefits from it. I just don’t get these people. They have not even given this a chance and already they are shooting it down. That’s a leftist for you.

Check out the moves on Twitter over this:

https://twitter.com/catgrinner/status/1073207093254066178

Most of these people don’t seem to get that a great deal of the funding for the wall was approved before Trump started all of this. I have never seen so many people so intent on leaving themselves open to attack. What a bunch of foolish, self-involved individuals. Just sad. Build the wall whatever it takes and do it fast before one of our many enemies gets a chance to severely cripple this nation once again.

Three Clinton Foundation Whistleblowers Will Testify This Coming Week, “Explosive” Allegations to Come…

Published

“With regard to the investigation, which doesn’t get a lot of attention, into the Clinton foundation, the DOJ designated John Huber to look into this. They have 6,000 pages of evidence that they’ve gone through. The foundation raised $2.5 billion, and they’re looking into potential improprieties. What’s next on this investigation?” the Fox News host questioned Congressman Meadows.

“Well, I think for the American people, they want to bring some closure, not just a few sound bites, here or there, so we’re going to be having a hearing this week, not only covering over some of those 6,000 pages that you’re talking about, but hearing directly from three whistleblowers that have actually spent the majority of the last two years investigating this,” Meadows answered.

The Gateway Pundit reports:

Some of the allegations they make are quite explosive, Martha and as we just look at the contributions — now everybody’s focused on the contributions for the Clinton Foundation and what has happened just in the last year, but if you look at it, you know, it had a very strong rise, the minute she was selected as Secretary of State — then it dipped down when she was no longer there and then rose again, when she decided to run for president. So there’s all kinds of allegations of you know, pay-to-play and that kind of thing, “Meadows said.

Take a look:

In the three years following Hillary Clinton’s departure from her position in the State Department, the Clinton Foundation donations dropped by 90%.

The Gateway Pundit writes, “Hillary Clinton left the State Department in 2013 and it looks like nobody wants to pay since she can no longer play.”

Currently, the Clinton Foundation is being put under investigation by the Justice Department and the FBI for a whole plethora of reasons.

The Hill reports that the Clinton Foundation is also being investigated by the IRS in order to find out whether or not any “tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use.”

Numerous Clinton emails backing up the idea that the Clinton Foundation was involved in “pay-to-play” schemes during Clinton’s time serving as the head of the Department of State have been found by Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.
