Wealth tax to wealth destruction

Elizabeth Warren, proponent of a new wealth tax

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is, at this writing, the front-runner for the Democratic Party Presidential nomination in 2020. She has proposed a wealth tax as her signature program. That wealth tax presents a clear and present danger to property and liberty, if not to life. It might not even survive a challenge in the highest Court in the land. But even if it does, it bids fair, not merely to confiscate the nation’s wealth, but to destroy it.

Taxing America To Death: 545 Responsible For This Mess Who Unite In Common Con Job

Pieter Brueghel the Younger, "Paying the Tax Collector" Oil on panel.

Tax policy in America and various States has its basis in a false premise and an unconstitutional tax, agreed upon by 545 people who should know batter.

Grave jumpers: mourning in America 2017

Grave jumpers and others on the left express their hate every day.

When my husband Steve was almost 13, his grandfather died—just a few months before the old man he loved and respected had tutored him for his Bar Mitzvah. To this day, Steve remembers the burial ceremony vividly.

Capitalism – free market, not crony

Capitalism at its best, works without government to try to steer it or pick winners and losers.

Capitalism is rapidly going out of fashion, especially among the young. That it is losing its grip on the West is confirmation that Western Civilization with all its advantages such as the rule of law and especially the ascendency of individual rights as opposed to state power, is in steep decline. That’s too bad, because virtually everything valuable built in the last 2000 years owes its existence to Western Civilization and along with it, capitalism.

Obamacare by any other name: still illegal

The wordplay on Obamacare won't make it legal.

“The typical American voter is so stupid, his dog teaches him tricks.” So said Jonathan Gruber, the architect of Romney – excuse me – Obamacare.

Johnson Amendment remains despite EO

Trustees of the Black Robed Regiment of New Jersey. The Johnson Amendment concerned them, too.

The infamous Johnson Amendment, that curtails political speech by churches, remains on the books. So also does Obamacare, at least for now. (The “replacement” that passed the House yesterday might roll back some of its worst excesses. But it will do so only if the Senate passes it.) One executive order, or even a slew of them, will not change this. Either Congress or the courts must address these bad laws directly.

Trump dumps them into the swamp

Donald Trump (now President) addresses his fans. Note to Michael Horton: Donald Trump never called himself Messiah. The one who did, trashed Christian values, and you said nothing. But now comes the counter-coup against Obama. But one thing more: is Trump the antichrist, or will he protect us from him? More recently: herewith a call to action to support a President who stands against oppression.

From the minute Donald J. Trump announced he intended to make America great again, the leaches, the crooks, the embezzlers, the high living elites and the establishment political leaders, felt the earth move under their feet. They understood succinctly the threat he posed to their profane fiefdoms. They understood even more so than many of us who at first gave little credence or confidence to the viability of a Trump campaign.

Donald Trump v. Hillary Clinton

Donald Trump accepting the 2016 Republican nomination. A vote for him was a vote for freedom. He owes his victory to the electoral college. He also now leads the armies of freedom in their war against the socialists. But he needs to learn now: the other side are playing without rules. His latest stand against illegal immigration further illustrates the problem. More recently: Trump should bury the DACA order and leave it buried.

The issues on which Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are campaigning have been spelled out clearly, by them, many times so that now all we hear are basically just the same questions being repeated over and over again with the same answers. Even the so called debates are all the same questions and same answers.

Phony conservative establishment

Donald Trump at a conservative gathering in 2011. Does he truly pass the test? It would appear so--for he is now the voice of the silent American majority. He at least stays grounded in the real world.

Now that Donald Trump has apparently secured the Republican nomination, it is time, actually it’s well past time, that we consider just exactly what it is about Trump that has the so called conservative establishment frothing at the mouth in paroxysmal gurgitations. One might surmise they had just swallowed a piece of over sized and under chewed chunk of reality.

What made America great?

The Johnson Amendment: first attack on religious freedom in America.

Clever political slogans have a way of resonating within us. They can result in votes for the candidate that is talented enough to wordsmith the catchiest phrase. Two of the best slogans of our time were crafted by the Obama campaign. They simply stated “Change You Can Believe In” and of course “Hope and Change.” The genius of these slogans was that every voter could read into them whatever they wanted. Literally, they meant nothing except what the voter wanted them to mean.
