    With more millions than she and her Oscar-winning husband Michael Douglas can spend and more homes than they could ever live in, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones says she’s “sick” of apologizing for being filthy rich. “One thing I’m not is humble anymore. I’m sick of being humble. I really am,” Zeta-Jones said in an interview with British the newspaper The Daily Mirror. “So sorry I’m rich, so sorry I’m married to a movie star, so sorry I’m not so bad looking.”“No sorrys. Enough. All that is important to me now is my work,” the Feud star continued. “[The] rest of...

    Shortened title. Full title: Attorney Warns: Seth Rich’s Brother, Obama Admin Lawyers Refuses to Authorize Wikileaks to Release Truth about ‘Hacked’ DNC Server Former President Obama’s White House Counsel, representing the brother of slain DNC staffer Seth Rich, are refusing to authorize Wikileaks to release information that would reveal the truth about how the whistle blower organization obtained troves of DNC and Clinton campaign emails during the 2016 election, an attorney who’s been subpoenaed by Rich’s legal team warns. Aaron Rich, the brother of Seth Rich, filed a lawsuit in April in US District Court in the District of Columbia,...

    **SNIP** After Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was murdered in 2016, conservative lobbyist Jack Burkman baffled some people when he paid for a private investigation to find the killer. Then in March, Burkman himself became the victim of a mysterious shooting and was hit by an SUV in a parking garage when he was picking up documents from someone he thought was an FBI whistleblower. Using fingerprints, detectives tracked down the suspect and it turned out to be Kevin Doherty, a man who had worked for Burkman on the Seth Rich case.

    NEW YORK – Mary Jo White announced plans on Monday to step down as chair of the powerful Securities and Exchange Commission before President-elect Donald Trump takes office. White’s term at the helm of the SEC hadn’t been scheduled to expire until June 2019. Trump has promised to roll back the sweeping regulation of Wall Street that White has spent nearly four years trying to install. In fact, implementing Dodd-Frank rules and other financial reforms had been one of the biggest challenges during White’s tenure at the SEC.
  • Turns Out, The Rich Will Pay An Even Bigger Share Of Income Taxes Under GOP Tax Cuts

    IBD ^ | 04/25/2018
    Tax Fairness: The most frequently repeated complaint about the Republican tax cuts is that they are a massive "giveaway" to the rich. New evidence shows that this claim, like almost every other attack on the tax bill, is false. In the run-up to the passage of the tax reform plan, which President Trump signed into law on Dec. 22, critics attacked it on several fronts. They said there was no way the tax cuts would spur extra economic or job growth. But after the tax cuts went into effect, several economists sharply increased their growth forecasts for 2018. They said...

    With the clearly unethical and most likely criminal behavior of the upper management levels of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) exposed by Chairman Devin Nunes of the House Intelligence Committee, there are two complementary areas that have been conveniently swept under the rug. The first deals with the murder of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich, and the second deals with the alleged hacking of the DNC server by Russia. Both should be of prime interest to special counsel Robert Mueller, but do not hold your breath. The facts that we...

    For the mega-rich, clearly, a regular plastic grocery bag is too drab. Céline, a France-based luxury clothing brand, unveiled a transparent plastic shopping bag during Paris Spring/Summer 2018 fashion week in January. The bag has since been spotted in a Nordstrom pop-up store in Seattle, retailing for $590. (That is approximately $589.95 higher than what a regular plastic bag costs to produce.)
  • The GOP tax plan creates one of the largest new loopholes in decades

    Los Angeles Times ^ | 12-31-2017 | Lily Batchelder, David Kamin
    The tax plan that President Trump signed into law last week creates one of the largest new loopholes in decades: a 20% deduction for “pass-through income.” Pass-through income is business income that is immediately “passed through” to the owner’s personal tax return, thereby avoiding the corporate income tax. Proponents of the Republican tax plan claim the cut benefits small businesses, but that’s a red herring. In reality, the new deduction disproportionately benefits the wealthy, penalizes workers and, in part because it is so complex, will ultimately reward those who can afford the best tax advice. The new deduction could have...

    **SNIP** Analysts believe the most important aspect in The Forensicator’s report is the “estimated speed of transfer (23 MB/s)” at which the documents were copied. Analysts say it’s “inconceivable” the DNC documents could have been copied at such speed from a remote location. Disobedient Media noted that “The Forensicator concluded that the chance that the files had been accessed and downloaded remotely over the Internet were too small to give this idea any serious consideration. He explained that the calculated transfer speeds for the initial copy were much faster than can be supported by an Internet connection. “This is extremely...
  • Connecticut budget can’t rely on ‘the rich’

    Connecticut continues to be dogged by messy finances. The budget legislators and Gov. Dannel P. Malloy adopted in late October for fiscal year 2017-18 is in deficit. Gov. Malloy’s Office of Policy and Management estimated a $202.8 million hole Nov. 20, while state Comptroller Kevin P. Lembo concluded Dec. 1 that the hole is $207.8 million. Before these forecasts were issued, the state was expected to contend with a $4 billion deficit in the 2019-21 biennium. ... “between 2015 and 2016, Connecticut saw a net loss of 2,050 tax filers who earn more than $200,000 per year.” This amounted to...

    American Thinker.com ^ | November 22, 2017 | Brian T. Hodges
    Seattle’s City Council made national headlines earlier this year when it enacted a city income tax aimed at “high earners.” Immediately, politicians crowed that they had planted a flag of “resistance” to the forces of “Trumpism.” In a court hearing last week, the city defended its war on wealth against several legal and constitutional challenges. The briefing from both sides exposes an inconvenient reality for the levy’s defenders: its real, ultimate victims aren’t necessarily the plutocrats they claim to be targeting. In fact, just the opposite. Some background: there are few precedents from other parts of the country for a...

    The real bombshell lurking in Donna Brazile’s stunning interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos about her new Book “Hacks” may be her cryptic references to murdered DNC IT staffer Seth Rich and her statement that she took the precautions one takes when one fears for their life. So far speculation about the unsolved murder of Seth Rich have been dismissed as right-wing conspiracy theories but Brazile’s references to him in the light of all that has come out about Wikileaks, the Fusion GPS dossier, Hillary’s purchase of the DNC that rigged the primaries against Bernie Sanders, may be a key to...

    On Oct. 1, a 64-year-old Nevada man opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers from a high-rise hotel in Las Vegas, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds. If you don't know his name, you can easily find it online, in print or on TV. But you won't learn it from this column. Notoriety may have been what he was after in methodically plotting the slaughter. He may have intended to outdo other mass shooters. He may have hoped his name would gain a sinister immortality. University of Alabama criminologist Adam Lankford has explained the repetition of such incidents as a...
