The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

IRS quietly adjusts tax requirements in having to pay Obamacare mandate to follow President Trump's Executive Order

In a victory for personal choice and civil rights, the IRS has quietly adjusted their tax policies to not require individuals to fill out Line Item 61 which declares that you either have health insurance, or are required to pay the Obamacare mandate, in accordance with an Executive Order signed by President Donald Trump during his first days in office.

Called the Executive Order Minimizing the Economic Burden of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Pending Repeal, and signed on the very first day of Trump's inauguration, this Order repeals the forced tax mandate on individuals who either cannot afford, or choose not to get health insurance that coincides with the original Affordable Health Care law's mandates.

How much difference does a single line on a tax form make? For Obamacare's individual mandate, the answer might be quite a lot. 
Following President Donald Trump's executive order instructing agencies to provide relief from the health law, the Internal Revenue Service appears to be taking a more lax approach to the coverage requirement. 
The health law's individual mandate requires everyone to either maintain qualifying health coverage or pay a tax penalty, known as a "shared responsibility payment." The IRS was set to require filers to indicate whether they had maintained coverage in 2016 or paid the penalty by filling out line 61 on their form 1040s. Alternatively, they could claim exemption from the mandate by filing a form 8965. 
For most filers, filling out line 61 would be mandatory. The IRS would not accept 1040s unless the coverage box was checked, or the shared responsibility payment noted, or the exemption form included. Otherwise they would be labeled "silent returns" and rejected.
Instead, however, filling out that line will be optional. - Reason
In tax filings for 2016, the Obamacare mandate rose to either 2.5% of household income, or $695 per person, dependent upon which was higher.

Bernie Sanders throws supporters under the bus by choosing to follow Hillary and her 'free college' program

Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders will formally give his support to Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, July 12 as he ends a presidential campaign that was fueled by younger voters motivated by his promises for free stuff.

Like Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders was an outsider who offered a more Socialist agenda for the American people, and campaigned on promises of free college, free healthcare, $15 minimum wage, and a myriad of other programs that according to his estimation would have doubled the $18 trillion national debt during his term in office.

On Tuesday, 74-year-old Socialist titan Bernie Sanders, a man who displayed a vibrant energy and enthusiasm that caught fire with young people across America in his noble fight against the establishment, will formally endorse Hillary Clinton who is perhaps the most corrupt politician in US history with more skeletons hiding in her closet than the crypt keeper. - Sputnik News
In perhaps an attempt to co-opt Sanders voters, Hillary Clinton recently announced her own 'free college' plan that like Obamacare, would only aid a small portion of students while at the same time subsidize Big Education with hundreds of billions of dollars.
Although many millennials scoffed at Hillary’s announcement that she had conjured up a free college plan as simply “stealing the Bern” - appropriating her opponents policy position and pretending that the idea was her own - after reading the details it is all too obvious that this plan has Clinton written all over  it. 
For one, the proposal is designed to fail offering free tuition to students whose families earn less than $80,000 per year in the first year while edging up to $125,000 by the fifth year. That sounds wondrously sensible, but it begs the question what happens to the kid whose parents make $80,001? Or do parents instead decide to forego work if they have children in college so as to fit under the threshold. 
The plan also calls for an addition $350 billion to colleges and universities across the country with no strings attached requiring the funds to go towards student scholarship while students allow them to cut costs by performing vital college services currently done by employees that make much more than $9/hr. It is, in fact, a free money giveaway to millionaire ‘public’ college and university presidents to pad their already lavish six and seven figure salaries.
So in the end, the 'Feel the Bern' revolution peters out with little fanfare and a concession to the establishment candidate.  And the millennials and younger generation who followed Sanders all the way to the end, are left with a difficult choice, of two candidates that appeal to none of them.

Obama’s new overtime labor law is a punishment to businesses who chose out of Obamacare

There is a reason why a former leading psychiatrist and now political analyst alleges that President Barack Obama is a severe narcissist, because one of his traits is being extremely vindictive towards anyone and anything that disagrees with him or his policies.  Case in point, the complete destruction of the coal industry in the United States when businesses in the energy sector chose to scoff at his bankrupt alternative energy agenda.

Mainstream wonders why consumers aren’t spending because they don’t actually look at the data

Many Americans by now know that the mainstream media is little more than a propaganda tool of the banks and government, and they rarely if ever report on actual data that could deter from their agenda of ensuring the public believes everything is fine.  This has been true in many facets, whether it is the whitewashing of the actual unemployment rate, or by having the President go on air and call anyone who doesn’t believe in a strong economy as being delusional.
Yet the economy in America today rests upon too shaky pillars of both consumer and government spending.  And despite the media’s continuous attempts to say buy stocks because the consumer is doing fine, the newest CPI report out on May 17 shatters this rhetoric by showing a rise in prices of over .3% in just the last month, and the highest move since 2013.

Wonder why consumers have no money from lower oil prices? Thank Obamacare!

If you spend any time watching the business channels on cable you find that the litany of analysts they parade across the screen cite the false narrative that consumers (American people) will be the catalyst for economic recovery because they will have more money to spend thanks to lower oil prices that have occurred over the past 18 months.  But despite this fallacy that didn’t come to pass, and was validated yesterday in a 1.4% Q4 GDP revision, there is another reason why Americans have not been able to participate wholeheartedly in the economy, and that reason is Obamacare.
The increase in healthcare spending and the Obamacare tax was by far the number one spending item by consumers in 2015, and nearly double the second place item which was new vehicle purchases.

GDP for 4th quarter comes in below 1%, and would have been negative without forced Obamacare tax

Although we have mentioned it several times, the primary factors that make up U.S. GDP are consumer spending, and government spending.  Combined these two categories within the Gross Domestic Product account for 85% of the total production numbers.
So when 4th Quarter GDP growth came in at less than 1% on Jan. 29 (.69%), it validated that sales over the holiday shopping season were incredibly dismal, and that consumers are close to tapped out when it comes to buying products in the economy.

Jobs number crushes expectations, but wages decline and part time employment reigns

On Jan. 8 the newest jobs report was published, with the overall numbers crushing analyst expectations as most had estimated that 200,000 would be created for the month of December.  Yet when you look further into the meat of the 292,000 new jobs recorded by the BLS, you find that not only were the majority of them part time (probably holiday seasonal) ones, but average wages for all jobs declined a tick for the first time since 2014.
This is also the first jobs report following the Fed’s hiking of interest rates, and as we saw with Macy’s just a few days ago, it will not be surprising if most retailers layoff many of these part time workers once the end of January comes upon us.

Forecast for holiday retail sales down as American’s spending most of their money on rent and Obamacare

We have already seen 3rd quarter retail numbers crash on Wall Street as companies like Macy’s, Fossil, and Nordstrom’s came in with double digit revenue declines, leading many analysts to forecast a bad holiday retail season leading up to Christmas and the end of the year.  But the reality is that the consumer is spending much less on things like apparel and other discretionary items because they are being bogged down with much higher costs in both rents and healthcare.
The Fed loves to discount inflationary numbers that are tied to consumers and the general economy, and instead prop up deflation within the sphere of Wall Street assets and commodities.  And if the real rate of inflation was correctly reported for the entire economy, it would not be languishing at the 2% number the Fed is using to justify their monetary policies, but along the lines of 8-10% per month in vital areas such as food, education, healthcare, and housing.

Besides Obamacare premiums, Medicare monthly costs set to rise by 34%

There are several truths in life… death, taxes, and the inability of Congress to pass legislation that is actually beneficial to the American people.  And with our welfare and benefit system growing from a safety net scheme 70 years ago, to now a massive boondoggle encompassing nearly two-thirds of the entire annual budget, eventually something had to crack, and it is coming this time in potentially new increased costs for Medicare premiums for those stuck in fixed incomes.
Nearly a third of the roughly 50 million elderly Americans who depend on Medicare for their physician care and other health services could see their premiums jump by 52 percent or more next year. That’s because of a quirk in the law that punishes wealthier beneficiaries and others any time the Social Security Administration fails to boost the annual cost of living adjustment.
Unless Congress or Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell intervenes, an estimated 15 million seniors, first-time beneficiaries or those currently claiming dual Medicare and Medicaid coverage will see their premiums jump from $104.90 per month to $159.30 for individuals, according to an analysis by the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College. Higher-income couples would pay multiples of that increase. - Yahoo Finance

TPP: Republicans will always stand with Obama when their corporate masters order them to

Well, it’s been seven months since the Republicans overwhelmingly took control over both Houses of Congress, and it appears that the old axiom is still correct… meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
Because contrary to the public’s opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty, the sure fire way that the Republican party will always stand with President Obama is when their corporate masters pay them to, and order them to pass or vote on legislation meant to increase power to banks and businesses.

UN reveals that not only would TPP trade agreement end middle class, but it will harm human rights across the globe

On May 6, a Senior official with the United Nations (UN) declared that the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) would provide corporations unlimited power over nations and peoples, and give them cause to violate human rights across the globe in the pursuit of profit.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a secret trade agreement being forged by the United States government at the behest of multi-national corporations, and is already being deemed by some to be the catalyst for the end of the Middle Class as we know it.

Remember when Soros and Buffett wanted the rich to be taxed more? Fooled you!

Remember a few years back when billionaire Warren Buffett attempted to sound humanitarian and declare that he and others who live in the 1% penthouse should pay more in taxes?  Or when George Soros in an interview back in 2012 stated that Republicans were protecting the rich under the ‘Buffett Rule’ and he would be more than happy to pay his fair share of annual revenues?  Well, it appears that both have lied and fooled the brain dead sheeple as on April 30, Soros was discovered to have used a loophole in the tax rules to that helped him defer taxable income to the tune of $13.3 billion, in which he owes nearly 40% of that to the Federal government by 2017.

Federal Reserve branch bank concludes Obamacare a disaster for businesses

Each month, branch banks for the Federal Reserve send out questionnaires and surveys to businesses as a way to test the climate of the economy.  In the month of August, the Philadelphia branch asked businesses what the full extend and effect so far from the new Affordable Healthcare Act (Obamacare) was, and the responses they received were a disaster.  In the majority of responses, businesses either let go of employees to adjust to the higher costs imposed upon them by the Federal government, moved full time employees to part time status, or, changed benefit plans so that employees would be forced to pay more towards their premiums.

Healthcare Fail: U.S. system considered the worst though it costs the most

Even without the implementation of Obamacare, the American healthcare system has been on the decline for several years.  And as with most government managed systems, which includes both education and the Veterans Administration, the cost of America’s healthcare is the highest costing in the developed world, while being the worst for treatment and care.

South Carolina to use 10th Amendment to nullify Obamacare

There is an old adage that infers that a right not practiced eventually makes that right invalid.  This illogical argument is normally used in the instances of the right to bear arms as most Americans have rarely carried sidearms in public view over the past 60 years.
However, another important right for our time that has been downplayed in the public eye as the Federal government has grown in power, is the 10th Amendment, or right of the states to nullify laws created by the government that are not theirs to impose according to the Constitution.  And in the state of South Carolina, the legislature is now imposing their 10th Amendment right to nullify Obamacare as being unconstitutional under the auspices that states cannot be compelled to enforce Federal law per legal precedence.

You'd have to be on drugs to sign up for Obamacare

The 'community organizing' machine, otherwise known as the 21st century brownshirts, is trying hard to make Americans overlook the travesty that is Obamacare.  So to appeal to hippies and millennials, Obama's new marketing tool in the state of Oregon is focusing on how psychedelic health care can be, and using a parody of the LSD generation as the persuader.






I guess it is no wonder that the study showing American adults having an IQ below an AVERAGE human might actually be true if this is how the government believes you can be manipulated into purchasing their corrupt insurance scheme.

Big Brother can use Obamacare as a data stream for the NSA and Law Enforcement

You want to know why the Democrats and President Obama are vehemently fighting against a shutdown or overhaul of Obamacare?  Just ask Big Brother, who it appears now will be one of the primary recipients of new and inclusive information that will feed your activities into NSA and law enforcement databases, and remove another layer of privacy from the lives of every American.

Abuse from IRS in Obamacare slush fund costs millions to taxpayers

It did not take long, but the first financial abuses in Obamacare are being reported on Sept. 25 in a new investigation conducted by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration.  In the report, a healthcare slush fund controlled by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is missing $67 million that the agency is unable to account for, and is a disturbing start to the multi-billion dollar program that has yet to even have its first patient processed.

What does Congress and Islam have in common? They both are exempt from Obamacare

Earlier this month, Democrats flocked to President Obama demanding action which would ensure they and their staffers would not be liable to the edicts of the Health Care bill (Obamacare) they pushed through Congress in 2009.  And in a ruling made by the Executive Branch’s Office of Personnel Management on Aug. 2, this ‘crisis’ was averted.
So now Congress, who promised the American people a fair health care plan that would last generations, now can add themselves to the nation of Islam, which under the provisions of Obamacare, is exempt from its requirements and taxes.

Paycheck calculator to show how the fiscal cliff will affect you

With the Bush tax cuts ending on Dec 31, and a whole new array of taxes are ready to be imposed on the American people beginning on Jan 1, it is difficult to sift through the myriad of articles which try to explain how the fiscal cliff will affect you, if it remains without change by Congress and the White House.

However, there is a now a website that provides a new paycheck calculator that shows American just how much they pay now, and will expect to pay next year if all new taxes go into affect.  The fine programmers at Paycheck City have created a neat application and graph that will allow visitors to see the difference between their 2012 taxes, and those projected for 2013.

Simply click on this link, and select the normal amount of standard deductions your family or individual returns allow.

Fiscal Cliff Calculator and Chart


While Paycheck City does not guarantee the results from this generic calculator, it does allow someone to get a rough, general, ballpark estimate of how much more they will have to pay, starting in 2013 due to the increased taxes.
