    100% Fed Up ^ | By Heather Allen | Mar 11, 2023
    A palace source has revealed that the Queen’s fortune has passed directly to King Charles, noting that the inheritance is transferred ‘from monarch to monarch.’ In 1993 a decision was made that removed inheritance taxes on the funds if they were transferred from one sovereign to another, making it the most ‘tax efficient’ way to transfer wealth. Unfortunately, this means that none of the Queen’s other children, including Anne and Edward, have received any of the money. So far, King Charles has failed to share the money with his siblings, and Prince Andrew has said he is ‘bewildered’ and ‘in...

    My Red State colleague Bonchie predicted that Trump Organization executive Allen Weisselberg would plead guilty in his tax-evasion trial in New York, and Thursday he did just that. The judge promptly sentenced him to 5 months in jail at Rikers Island and ordered him to pay nearly $2 million in fines and penalties.Many are touting that the big news coming out of this case is that Weisselberg agreed to testify against the Trump Organization in a trial this fall. Notably, he will remain free on bail until that testimony is complete. Never Trumpers are licking their lips—but this is not...

In an article about Attorney General Merrick Garland ‘facing pressure as the January 6 investigation widens,’ The New York Times claimed Biden wants Garland to prosecute Trump. The New York Times reported: “As recently as late last year, Mr. Biden confided to his inner circle that he believed former President Donald J. Trump was a threat to democracy and should be prosecuted, according to two people familiar with his comments.” “And while the president has never communicated his frustrations directly...

    Barter Society Emerges In Greece As Crisis Deepens *Video* Mac Slavo October 29th, 2011 As the Greek economy succumbs to the debt crisis and individual Greeks are made poorer each day through austerity measures and job cuts, many have begun resorting to traditional bartering as a way to make ends meet and at the same time increase their involvement with neighbors and their general community. Services being bartered include anything from language classes and babysitting to hand cooked meals and daily labor. It’s huge. Everything we do is without money, like looking after people or making food by ourselves. …We...

    It's been a busy day at the market in downtown Volos. Angeliki Ioanitou has sold a decent quantity of olive oil and soap, while her friend Maria has done good business with her fresh pies. But not a single euro has changed hands – none of the customers on this drizzly Saturday morning has bothered carrying money at all. For many, browsing through the racks of second-hand clothes, electrical appliances and homemade jams, the need to survive means money has been usurped. "It's all about exchange and solidarity, helping one another out in these very hard times," enthused Ioanitou, her...

    In Greece, the age-old practice of bartering for goods and services is experiencing a renaissance as the nation endures the sixth year of its debt-driven economic meltdown. And as bartering has come to mean the difference between starvation and survival for some Greeks, Americans ought to take note. The New York Times on Monday explained how virtual barter networks are popping up in Greece to help individuals and small businesses in the nation survive harsh capital controls put in place to combat a long-standing liquidity crisis. Earlier this year, many Greeks found themselves unable to withdraw money from banks for...

    American Thinker ^ | 09/18/2021 | James Nollet
    President Biden has long demanded that the wealthy "pay their 'fair share' of taxes," which raises the question: What is "fair," and who decides what is "fair"? Is it honest brokers? Or ideologically driven fascists such as the Soviets, who caused the great Ukrainian famine of 1932–1933, when the then-ruling communists decided it was "fair" to take everything the people they branded "kulaks" had? Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? as the Roman Juvenal noted.In Biden's Sept. 16 speech about the economy, fair taxes, and the China virus, Biden extended his anti-rich rhetoric into dangerous waters. He accused the top 1% and...
