Joe Biden’s $600 IRS Reporting Requirement Was Already Put Into Law Inside Obamacare, Then Repealed in 2011 – The Current Proposal Is Just Another Way to Return to The 2010 Objective


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on October 14, 2021 | Sundance | 94 Comments

For those who have been following politics for a while, you might have remembered something about $600 and IRS reporting from a decade ago when Obamacare was passed.

Within the 2010 Obamacare mess, “It was added that payments for goods more than $600 in a 12 month period needed to be reported as well as services. Obamacare further provided that, beginning in 2012, payments to non-tax-exempt corporations—which had previously been exempt from the reporting requirement—would be subject to information reporting.” (link)

The 2010 tax law was actually enacted, briefly, and was scheduled to take effect in the 2012 tax year.

I well remember at the time everyone was like WTF, I’ve got to fill out a 1099 any time I give $600 to a service provider or business?

Yes, the embedded law inside the Obamacare law meant that anyone who paid any person or business $600 or more for a good or service was supposed to fill out a 1099 tax filing reporting the transaction to the IRS.

The political premise of the law was so obvious, stupid and cumbersome in 2011, after Obama’s 2010 mid term election “shellacking“, one of the first acts of a new republican congress was to repeal that ridiculous segment of the law.  As it was noted at the time:

[…] “Essentially, with President Obama, signing into law H.R. 4 [2011], the reporting rules now revert back to what they were before the 2010 legislation (Obamacare and Small Business Jobs Act) was passed.  We are now back to where we were before the government started monkeying around with things in the first place.” (read more)

So, for those of you paying attention; and for those of you who realize Joe Biden is just a false front for Obama’s third term; indeed the current 2021 effort by the Treasury Department to require banking notifications to the IRS for $600 transactions looks exactly like what Obama’s team previously tried in 2010.

♦ The difference this time is they are switching the reporting requirement from the individual taxpayer to the financial institution.  THE GOAL IS THE SAME.

Here is where you need to remember that Barack Obama and his Alinsky crew used the IRS as a weapon against their political opposition. {GO Deep}  The IRS even settled a class action lawsuit in 2018 giving the Tea Party groups $3.5 million in a settlement, and the IRS admitted they were targeting Obama’s political opposition.

The Joe Biden proposal to create an entirely new reporting regime for financial accounts that exceed $600 should be alarming to taxpayers. If this proposal is implemented, it is inevitable that we will see new cases of the IRS targeting and harassing taxpayers.

It is not a coincidence the $600 threshold is the same in the Joe Biden 2021 Treasury Department effort as it was in the Barack Obama 2010 effort.  The Alinsky crew know they can then control “who” to apply this target regulation toward.

Just like the DOJ-NSD only targeted Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA) violations toward the political opposition of Democrats; and predictably just like any OSHA vaccine penalty will only be targeted toward political opposition of Democrats; and just like the IRS was previously weaponized through the DOJ to target political opposition of Democrats; so too will these $600 treasury notifications provide the basis for another round of political targeting.

We have a clear history to fall back on here.   This is what Saul Alinsky taught them to do….

[…] The IRS Criminal Investigation Division (IRS-CI) regularly violated taxpayers’ rights and skirted or ignored due process requirements when investigating taxpayers for allegedly violating the $10,000 currency transaction reporting requirements, according to a 2017 report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). In addition, less than one in ten investigations uncovered violations of tax law.

These findings should be alarming to taxpayers given that President Biden has proposed creating a new comprehensive financial account information reporting regime which would force the disclosure of any business or personal account that exceeds $600. Not only would this include the bank, loan, and investment accounts of virtually every individual and business, but it would also include third-party providers like Venmo, CashApp, and PayPal.

White House Chief of Staff Is Not Worried About ‘The Help’ Dealing With Inflation


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on October 14, 2021 | Sundance | 213 Comments

If you are wonder whether the White House is concerned about the middle-class being impacted by massive increases in gasoline, high home heating costs, extreme food inflation and empty shelves…   Well, the message from White House chief of staff Ron Klain is very telling:

Apparently feeding your family and making ends meet is a “high class problem.”

The elitism and disconnect from the average American always shows up when you look at DC democrats writ large.   They always talk down to those they view as ‘the help’.

Schumer Confirms the Deep State Runs the Country


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Oct 14, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Here is that interview people have asked about where Chuck Schumer confirms that no politicians will EVER investigate the intelligence branch — NSA, CIA, FBI, or DOJ. They hold unbridled power to do as they like when they like.

The probability that the CIA took out John F. Kennedy has long been suspected, and the CIA has refused to release documents that Congress had sealed for 50 years. They claim it is a national security issue, and if it were Russia, they would be flouting that documentation all over the press. The ONLY reason to refuse to release documents is that they will lead to the intelligence community who wanted to start the war with Vietnam, which Kennedy opposed.

There is the declassified proposal that Kennedy also rejected. The CIA wanted to kill Americans and then blame it on Castro to justify invading Cuba. And people wonder about 9/11? The Russian hack that they boast was discovered by the intelligence community never took place. Russians never hacked the Democratic Party servers.

Welcome to the land of the free, where our claimed elected officials are afraid to investigate the intelligence community. Schumer calls Trump stupid, for he should have known how powerful they really were. They wanted Biden so they could do as they liked whenever. Calling Trump stupid for criticizing the intelligence community confirms that neither he nor anyone else in Washington would dare to shake up or stir the intelligence community.

Two Generations Agreeing in Song


Armstrong Economics Blog/Opinion Re-Posted Sep 1, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Here we have the opposite generations of artists singing songs (click on image) about the same problem. I think this is fantastic for what you are listening to is showing that the Resistance is rising. I think we are all tired of the COVID nonsense. Debating if it will kill people in 2 to 3 years or it will track people with chips and nano-technology. I believe it will impact fertility for I have been informed already that girls in their 20s have been experiencing side effects impacting their menstrual cycle changes by staff with direct experience. With both Gates & the Rockefeller Foundations trying hard to reduce population, I do not find a single world of Gates as being trustworthy nor his puppets at the World Health Organization and our most dear Saint Anthony Fauci.

These two songs are a glimmer of hope that there are two distant generations singing about the same problem. I long the Monalisa Twins and how they point out that Gates, a college dropout, has elevated himself to our global health czar with absolutely no expertise in climate or health. Yet the press he has indeed bought, run to him for his guidance on these subjects.

Then there is even resistance showing up in Rap songs such as Tom MacDonald’s Brainwashed.

This is the real agenda – not COVID. That is just the tool to scare the hell out of people to surrender all their liberty to prepare for the Great Reset. We need more singers to come out for we now have one year to defeat these people.

Australia’s Finest Politician Setting New Standards for the World


Armstrong Economics Blog/Tyranny Re-Posted Sep 1, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

This compiled video (click on image above) sums up Australia’s FINEST Politician and how absolutely insane she has become in the face of this manipulated pandemic for political purposes. I think she must have watched too many Naxi films when growing up and was deeply inspired. This is who the Australian police are protecting. Well, when Australia falls, they can always plead they were just following orders as they did at Nuremberg. Australia – really going down under this time!

Biden’s Saigon

Biden’s Saigon

Woke Generals prove woke is a joke

The Taliban was retaking Kabul when the White House released a photo of a feeble Joe Biden at a very large conference table. There were no advisors or generals there, only a confused failure of a man who watched helplessly as our embassy took down the revered LGBQT+ flag. They took down Old Glory, too.

The photo has become controversial as the angry millennials running the White House outed intelligence officials locations and identities when they tweeted out the image. People also noticed the clocks were off by 3 hours between London and Moscow. Was this a photoshopped old photo from March when daylight savings time was in effect?

We’ve just seen the worst military flop and embarrassment since the fall of Saigon and sleepy Joe blamed it all on Trump. That’s a cop out of course. Joe is not going to take any responsibility because the man lacks character. Still, perhaps Joe was too busy making sure our military was becoming more ‘woke’ and that plenty of gay and trans soldiers were at their peak readiness. Joe said there was no way we’d see a Saigon-like repeat of helicopters evacuating our personnel from Kabul, but that’s exactly what we saw.

As the Taliban was collecting millions of dollars worth of helicopters, vehicles, weapons, and US pride left behind, Biden was off ‘vacationing’ in Camp David. Barely six months into his regime’s rule and he has to have a vacation. Nothing from his second in command, either. They probably know that no one wants to hear from the cackling hyena Kamala Harris, who would probably laugh the whole thing off.

We all knew the US would eventually have to end a very unpopular war that should never have been started in the first place. The blame can be laid at the feet of the Bush crime family for starting it. The premise for the US ‘police action’ was 9-11. And yet we all know Building 7 was a demolition job performed by insiders with the approval of the shadow government. Cheney and Rumsfeld no doubt oversaw the operation. They staged 9-11 to bring about war and tyranny and allow the military industrial complex to gorge itself. Trillions of dollars and thousands of lives lost later, nothing was accomplished. The Taliban religious fanatics are back in control and stronger than ever.

We can’t lay all the blame on Bush and Biden. The Afghan people did not want our freedom. The same freedom Bush said they hated us for. Oh sure, there are exceptions, but if the Afghans really wanted to be free they would have fought for their freedom. They didn’t. Now the women will wear burkas and be refused higher educations. Gay Afghans will be murdered. Sharia Law will be brutally enforced.

It’s a shame, but it was never, ever any of our business. Maybe now, after two defeats, America will have finally learned its lesson about forcing freedom onto people who despise it.

Congressman Doug Lamborn Recently Questioned Defense Secretary Austin and Joint Chief Chair Milley About Afghanistan, What They Said Should Get Them Fired Today – VIDEO


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on August 17, 2021 | Sundance | 88 Comments

Many people have wondered how the Biden administration could get the collapse of Afghanistan so horribly wrong and botched completely the withdrawal of U.S. forces. To that point there is a little known Question and Answer session by Colorado Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO, CD05) that deserves some attention.

Approximately 7 weeks ago, June 23rd, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley testified in front of the House Armed Services Committee about their budget requests. Rep Doug Lamborn took this opportunity, he only had 4 minutes, to ask some very specific questions about Afghanistan and his concerns for early reports of the Taliban surging back into control.

Lamborn asked about the hazard of closing Bagrham AFB given the tenuous nature of reliance on one airport in Kabul. Lamborn also asked about the evacuation of U.S-Afghan allies and the risk to women and girls if the Taliban were successful. What Def Sec Austin and General Milley said in response totally explains why the White House was blind-sided by the Taliban in the past week. [WATCH Video at 01:06:56, Prompted]

Given the nature of what has happened in Afghanistan, those totally wrong estimations of the situation in the region should be enough to see both Secretary Austin and General Milley fired.  At the very least reliance on this inept and totally wrong outlook explains why the Biden administration had no idea what was about to happen.

Congressman Doug Lamborn’s questioning was directly on point and in hindsight, stunningly prescient.   Great job by Lamborn!

Hopefully Austin was wrong when he said that any defense of women and girls in Afghanistan will be contingent upon the U.S. embassy in Kabul.  The U.S. embassy in Kabul is no longer there, the Taliban have it.
