  • Google-Funded Conservative Groups Urge Congress to Avoid Antitrust Action Against Big Tech

    A group of “free-market and low-tax advocates” are urging House Republicans to back off plans to take antitrust action against Big Tech companies. The Washington Times reported the “conservative activists” authored a 10-page letter to Republican U.S. Reps. Ken Buck (CO), Matt Gaetz (FL), and Andy Biggs (AZ) and it said in part: We fear that today, both sides of the aisle are pushing for the weaponization of antitrust, either as a tool to punish corporate actors with whom they disagree or out of a presupposition that big is bad.

    Americans for Tax Reform founder Grover Norquist struck down the idea that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s tax hikes will be good for people’s wallets and life savings. Fox Business Host Stuart Varney questioned Norquist during Thursday’s edition of Varney & Co on the effects a “$2, $3, $4 trillion-dollar tax hike” would have on the economy if implemented right now. Norquist responded that when President Donald Trump and the Republicans “cut taxes” and “deregulated, the S&P 500” was “up 50 percent” from when the president got elected to the height of COVID. He continued: “Your life savings increased 50...

    The Pentagon announced Friday that it is launching a task force to study unidentified flying objects after reports of sightings from service members. The Pentagon said in a statement that Deputy Defense Secretary David Norquist approved the establishment of an Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force (UAPTF), which will fall under the Navy. “The Department of Defense established the UAPTF to improve its understanding of, and gain insight into, the nature and origins of UAPs," the Pentagon said. "The mission of the task force is to detect, analyze and catalog UAPs that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national...

    Organizations that vigorously oppose government spending took Paycheck Protection Program loans, including some that have criticized the CARES Act, which created the PPP program, according to data released by the Small Business Administration. Americans for Tax Reform Foundation, which says it “educates taxpayers on the true cost of government” and “the realities of costly government programs,” received between $150,000 and $300,000 in loans. In a statement, Americans for Tax Reform claimed it “never opposed” the PPP program and defended the foundation’s decision to take government loans, which it said allowed the foundation to “maintain its employees without laying anyone off”...

    American Tax Reform ^ | 1/7/2019 | Alex Hendrie
    House Budget Chairman John Yarmuth (D-Ky.) has announced that the forthcoming budget blueprint will call for a 33 percent corporate income tax rate by hiking the rate from 21 percent to 28 percent. This would make the U.S. a less competitive place to do business and make the U.S. statutory rate higher than many developed competitors. State corporate taxes average 6 percent across the U.S, so this planned tax hike would give the U.S. an average top corporate rate of 34 percent. The current combined corporate rate across the 36 member Organisation for Economic Development and Cooperation (OECD) is currently...
  • Republicans [Luntz, Norquist] fear they've blown economic message that could have secured victory

    Washington Examiner ^ | Nov. 4, 2018
    For all the media fixation on the "lies" President Trump tells, sometimes he has an uncanny knack of telling the unvarnished truth. So it was on Friday night when Trump told those gathered at a West Virginia rally: "Sometimes it’s not as exciting to talk about the economy because we have a lot of other things to talk about." That unscripted line left some Republican strategists nodding in agreement and wondering about what might have been. Republicans are bracing for the loss of the House of Representatives with operatives citing the lack of a coherent economic message and unnecessary distractions...

    Twice-failed presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton spoke at Ozyfest, a two-day festival in Central Park, on Saturday and she looked terrible. Hillary donned a mumu-style top that nearly touched the floor and white pants. Her hair was disheveled and she had very prominent bags under her eyes. To think this woman almost became the 45th president of the US…. Hillary Clinton complained about Russia and Vladimir Putin for almost 45 minutes straight during a Q&A session with Laurene Powell Jobs, founder of Emerson Collection. [Snip] But everyone is talking about Hillary’s appearance – she looked like hell.

    Rick Scott, Florida’s popular governor, has a good chance of ousting a Democratic senator this fall. . . snip Conservatives feel good about Scott taking his record to the voters this November. Ron DeSantis, a Republican congressman who is running to succeed Scott as governor, told me this weekend that Scott will also be able to pummel Nelson, the Democratic incumbent senator, for his votes against Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch and against the Trump tax cut. Grover Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform, says Scott can use the state’s prosperity to appeal to many voters who wouldn’t...

    Remember the date of March 13, 2017. It was the day President Trump was guaranteed his re-election and Republican congressional gains in 2018 and 2020. It's not complicated. Follow along. The Congressional Budget Office released its study of Trump and Paul Ryan's plan to repeal Obamacare and begin to reform our healthcare system. It had many numbers. Only two mattered: taxes and spending. CBO announced that the repeal bill reduces taxes by almost $900 billion and reduces federal spending by $1.2 trillion over the next decade. This reduces deficit spending by $300 billion over the next 10 years. Thus the...

    A 15-year-old schoolgirl was allegedly groped and raped by two North African migrants on the commuter train from Milan to Mortara Thursday afternoon. On Saturday morning, the girl was hospitalized with multiple bruises, a concussion and a broken rib, and police have launched a search for the assailants accused of aggravated assault and sexual assault. According to police reports, after school—around 4:00pm—the girl went to the Milan station of Porta Genova to catch the local commuter train home, sitting with a friend in the last carriage. When the friend got off the train at an earlier stop, the girl was...
  • Gov. Chris Christie is touting Grover Norquist's support of 23-cent-per-gallon gas tax hike

    Associated Press ^ | 6/29/16 | BRUCE SHIPKOWSKI
    TRENTON, New Jersey — Republican Gov. Chris Christie on Wednesday touted an anti-tax crusader's endorsement of a proposed 23-cent- per-gallon gasoline tax hike along with a sales tax cut, sweeping aside objections raised by Democratic leaders in the state Senate and voicing confidence that the measure would be passed in that chamber. Christie all but dared lawmakers not to act on his plan during a statehouse news conference, a day after the Assembly passed the plan to pay for a $2 billion a year transportation trust fund for eight years. The fund runs out of borrowing authority Friday, and Christie's...

    His newest foreign policy advisor, Frank Gaffney, is a key player in the effort to remove Grover Norquist from the organization's board. Ted Cruz named Frank Gaffney his foreign policy advisor on Thursday, a move that threatens to involve the Republican presidential contender in a contentious fight to get the party's most prominent anti-tax advocate kicked off the National Rifle Association's board. Gaffney once worked for President Ronald Reagan's Department of Defense and now runs the Center for Security Policy, a hyper-conservative think tank that promulgates theories about a Muslim Brotherhood conspiracy to infiltrate the U.S. government.

    Refresher: Rubio's Trail and Amnesty Deception From the start, the Immigration bill S.744 was constructed to deceive the public. And, did a good job of creating the false illusion of greater security. But Rubio's claim of enforcement 'triggers' was a dishonest argument. His amnesty scheme was chock full of deception with many behind the scene maneuvers all designed to obfuscate truth. The bill made America less safe, not more. Rubio's scheme allowed illegal aliens to be legalized immediately. All at a huge cost to the US taxpayer [Note] and sovereignty of our nation. Like Obamacare, the legislation was crafted behind...

    President Barack Obama will propose a $10 per barrel charge on oil to fund clean transportation projects as part of his final budget request next week, the White House said Thursday. The proposal would have difficulty clearing the Republican-controlled Congress. Oil companies would pay the fee, which would be gradually introduced over five years. The government would use the proceeds to fund high-speed railways, autonomous cars and other travel systems. "By placing a fee on oil, the President's plan creates a clear incentive for private sector innovation to reduce our reliance on oil and at the same time invests in...

    LEESBURG, Va. - Republican Presidential candidate, Senator Ted Cruz, is the first to sign the U.S. Balanced Budget Amendment pledge to the citizens of the United States of America. His pledge is that he will "preserve, protect and defend the U.S. Constitution including Article V which, in part, empowers two-thirds of the states to draft and the people in three-quarters of the states to ratify a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution." The U.S. federal government has run up a debt of over 19 trillion dollars, largely to underwrite past and present consumption using resources that should belong to...

    ON THE AFTERNOON of September 26, George W. Bush gathered 15 prominent Muslim- and Arab-Americans at the White House. With cameras rolling, the president proclaimed that “the teachings of Islam are teachings of peace and good.” (SNIP) And he has done so to their mutual political benefit. During the 2000 campaign, Norquist urged Karl Rove to focus on the Muslim vote—pointing to, among other things, the thousands of Muslims in the key state of Michigan. By all appearances, the Bush campaign heeded Norquist’s advice. In an admirable departure from the usual Republican script, Bush frequently integrated mosques into his platitudes...

    The plan calls for eliminating federal income taxes on individuals earning less than $25,000 and married couples earning less than $50,000. If you fall under the no tax bracket you'll get to send a one-page letter to the IRS that says "I Win," Trump said. But the plan would also benefit businesses and the rich.
