  • The Tea Party is back!

    President Trump has our economy booming.  Unemployment claims are at an unprecedented 50-year-low.  There are more jobs available than there are workers to fill them. Yet every Democrat presidential candidate is on a mad dash to socialism.  If a Democrat is elected president in 2020, we will be thrust back to the depressing days of Obama's failed economy: record-high numbers of Americans on food stamps, unemployment, and disability.  Democrats are like drug-dealers seeking to insidiously addict Americans to government dependency solely to control their lives, behavior, and voting loyalty. From the beginning of the Tea Party movement, I traveled the country on numerous...

    Americans are getting an extra day to file their taxes after key elements of the IRS website crashed on deadline day. The IRS said that individuals or businesses with a filing or payment due Tuesday now have until midnight Wednesday to complete the task. Earlier Tuesday, Americans who had waited until the final day to file online got an unwelcome surprise: The agencys website for making payments and gaining access to other key services was down due to what Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin later described as a high-volume technical issue. The website was back online late Tuesday. This is the...

    FCW Federal Computer Week ^ | August 21, 2015 | Sean Lyngass
    An official timeline of the Office of Personnel Management breach obtained by FCW pinpoints the hackers' calibrated extraction of data and the government's step-by-step response. It illuminates a sequence of events that lawmakers have struggled to pin down in public hearings with Obama administration officials. The timeline makes clear that the heist of data on 22 million current and former federal employees was one sustained assault rather than two separate intrusions to steal background investigation data and personnel records. The document, which bears the seals of OPM and the Department of Homeland Security, is dated July 14 and was prepared...

    Tuesday is tax day. I tell you this not to raise your blood pressure, but to remind you. If you’re like me, you wait till the last minute because you have to cut a check to Uncle Sam. Since withholdings used to force me to give the government an interest-free loan before I started doing contracting work, I figured making them wait till the very last day was the least I could do to protest for the hand in my wallet they used to have for me.But I will cut that check again this year, as I do every year....

    Is your stomach in knots today? Happy Tax Day! Most folks I know find themselves engulfed in stress just when they should be enjoying the arrival of spring and the beauty it brings. In March and April families can actually feel the tension build as Tax Day approaches. Dads are grumpy, and moms are even grumpier. Where are those receipts? When can I find the time to read all the new tax codes? Why does the government take so much? Can we afford to hire an accountant? Can we afford not to? Why the heck should we have to? Will...
  • IRS Giving Tax Credits to Illegals Who've Engaged in Identity Theft

    In a typical year, April 15 is Tax Day when hard-working Americans cede over an enormous amount of their income to the federal government so they can redistribute it to all sorts of special interests and protected classes, including illegal aliens. You heard that right. The IRS has admitted to knowingly granting refundable tax credits, which work as back door welfare payments, to illegal aliens who break the law and steal Social Security numbers to obtain employment and file their taxes.

  • Tax Day 2015: Why Is April 15 The Deadline To Pay Taxes?

    Tech Times ^ | April 14, 2015 | Laura Rosenfeld
    Though they may seem like it, the dates that holidays fall on aren't usually random. They typically commemorate a significant event that happened on or around that day. Obviously, this makes sense. However, it's hard to guess why April 15 was chosen as Tax Day, the deadline for filing and paying your taxes. The 16th Amendment, which instituted a national income tax, was passed by Congress on July 2, 1909 and ratified on Feb. 3, 1913, but neither of these days made the cut to be the Tax Day. What gives? If the April 15 deadline to file and pay...

    Townhall.com ^ | April 15, 2014 | Hank Adler
    As has been widely reported, a single sentence in the 2008 Farm Bill, Public Law 110-246, is said to be responsible for the Internal Revenue Service seizing refunds from the children of taxpayers who the Social Security Administration says were inadvertently overpaid in the 1960s and 1970s. Are they kidding? The story is ugly in so many ways. Of course, no one is claiming credit for the change in the law that the Internal Revenue Service and the Social Security Administration is relying upon to seize taxpayer refunds. But, of course, there is the actual language in the bill for...

    Cybercast News Service ^ | August 12, 2013 - 12:46 AM | Terence P. Jeffrey
    In his new bookThe Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republicnationally syndicated radio host Mark Levin, who served as chief of staff in the Reagan Justice Department, argues that the Constitution should be amended to put tax day and election day back to back. I would move tax day to the day before election day, Levin said in an interview on CNSNews.coms Online With Terry Jeffrey. I think this is very important, because if youll notice, election day and tax day are about as far apart as they can get, like seven months apart, said Levin. So were voting on the...

    The wisdom Frank tried to impart on CNN this morning is that the best way to fight against terrorism is by making government a lot bigger. Video via The Weekly Standard: In this terrible situation, lets be very grateful that we had a well-funded, functioning government. It is very fashionable in America, and has been for some time to criticize government, belittle public employees, talk about their pensions, talk about what people think of [their] health care. Here we saw government in two ways perform very well. I never was as a member of Congress one of the...

    NewsBusters.org ^ | April 16, 2013 | Paul Bremmer
    Former congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) went on MSNBC this morning to react to yesterday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon. In a shameless moment of advocacy, Frank used the tragedy to make a political statement about revenue and the size of government. Considering that this happened on MSNBC, you might expect the host to condone the congressman’s liberal activism, but anchor Thomas Roberts actually called Frank out for his despicable attempt to politicize this tragedy. Early in the interview, Frank stressed that none of us know much about who and what were behind this event as of yet. So the former...

    Thoughts and prayers this morning for yesterdays bombing victims and their families. I know there has been talk about the Marathon Bomber being a disgruntled Tea Partier (well okay, it was just Tingles and CNN dufus, Peter Bergen, who came right out and said it, butt you know others were hoping thinking it too.) From what I hear via Little Mo that is very unlikely. Heres part of the report he filed late last night: Authorities say they are searching for a darker skinned or black male with a black backpack and black sweatshirt, possibly foreign national from the accent...

    In explaining why President Obama didn't call the Boston bombings a "terrorist attack," former adviser David Axelrod said, "I'm sure what was going through the president's mind is -- we really don't know who did this -- it was tax day": "The word has taken on a different meaning since 9/11," Axelrod said of the phrase "terrorist attack." "You use those words and it means something very specific in people's mind. And I'm sure what was going through the president's mind is -- we really don't know who did this -- it was tax day. Was it someone who was...
