Former Australia PM Rudd – “Jawdropping”
Trump Admin Leaks – Purge liar-nObama Holdovers
{rickwells.us} ~ The handwringing script reader on CNN was given a new weapon to use against President Trump, a leak from within the government of what was supposed to have been a private conversation with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull... as well as his conversations on that January day with Pena Nieto of Mexico. Maybe it’s time to stop listening to the complicit apologists and excuse makers in high places, Mr. President. Purge the globalists and deep state liar-nObama holdovers. The CNN bobble-head discusses the leaked conversation between Trump and Turnbull with her guest, former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd. She says what she’s about to read is what really stuck out to her – more likely the producer stuck it out to her and said ‘read this.’... http://rickwells.us/former-australia-pm-rudd-jawdropping-trump-admi...

It's time to challenge Iranian misbehavior
by Dr. Ted Gover
{israelnationalnews.com} ~ After what many believe to be President liar-nObama’s soft and naïve policy on Iran, the Trump administration has made it known that Washington’s conciliatory ways towards Tehran have been replaced with a more aggressive approach... This new stance - - a strong support for Sunni Gulf states and Israel accompanied by a tough line on terror - - is long overdue and serves as a sharp departure from years of U.S. refusal to respond to Iranian hostility against American interests and citizens. Iranian aggression against the U.S. goes back decades, starting with the separate U.S. Embassy and Beirut barracks bombings of 1983, followed by the 1996 Kobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia. Iran’s support of Shia militias that murdered hundreds of U.S. military personnel with advanced IEDs in both Iraq and Afghanistan is also well documented... http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/20827?utm_s...

The First External Threat America Needs To Address
by J.E. Dyer
{lidblog.com} ~ Last week, the Security Studies Group, Jim Hanson’s and Dave Reaboi’s next-gen think tank, published an excellent, well-organized article on Iran as the “first threat” America needs to address... The post is timely; many commentators are recognizing the urgent need for a grand strategy to deal with Iran, which packs a wallop with terror sponsorship, proxy wars, near-nuclearization, and the resources of a large nation-state to put behind radical, apocalyptic Islamism. In analyzing the dimensions of the problem, the SSG article suggests the outlines of such a strategy.  After looking at the vectors of the Iranian threat and the geography of the problem-set, the authors funnel down their recommendations the ones in this post, at least to address two key policy areas: the JCPOA, and the Iraq/Syria end game...http://lidblog.com/iran-geopolitical-threat/

The Foreign Press Association's Unlimited Bias

The Foreign Press Association in Israel
by Bassam Tawil
{gatestoneinstitute.org} ~ The Foreign Press Association (FPA), an organization representing hundreds of foreign journalists who work for various media outlets in Israel, is upset... What seems to be the problem? In their view, recent Israeli security measures in Jerusalem are preventing reporters from doing their jobs. The FPA's position, expressed in at least two statements during the past three weeks, came in response to Israeli security measures enforced in the city after Muslim terrorists murdered two police officers at the Temple Mount on July 14. Earlier this week, the FPA, which has often served as a platform for airing anti-Israeli sentiments, went farther by filing a petition to Israel's High Court of Justice challenging the actions and behavior of the Israeli security forces toward journalists during Palestinian riots in protest against the installation of metal detectors and cameras at the entrances to the Temple Mount...https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/10768/foreign-press-association#...

Gen KELLY Gave MCMASTER Green 
Light To Hire and FIRE ANYONE He Wants
{rickwells.us} ~ It appears that the appointment of General John Kelly as White House Chief of Staff might not be the blessing that many of us had hoped it would be... that it could actually be a problem for patriotic Americans who believe in President Trump’s nationalist message and agenda. Trump’s Generals have been busy lately, with Defense Secretary James Mattis intervening in a dispute last month between National Security Adviser, globalist and an liar-nObama holdover’s best friend, H.R. McMaster and White House chief strategist Steve Bannon. The incident took place during a policy meeting on Afghanistan last month. Since that time McMaster has fired three Bannon allies while keeping all liar-nObama holdovers. It just recently became known that McMaster sent a letter to rogue unmasker and liar-nObama operative Susan Rice in April,  allowing her to keep her security clearance despite no longer being in the official government. She still works for liar-nObama and his shadow government, so that information is still nice for her to have access to...http://rickwells.us/gen-kelly-gave-mcmaster-green-light-hire-fire-a...

 Republicans Hope to Simplify the Tax Code 
By Caroline Camden Lewis:  Trivia question: Whose idea was it to tax people at different rates based upon their income? Answer: Karl Marx, as in the father of Marxism, the ideology adopted worldwide by totalitarian communist regimes that are responsible for the murder of more than 100 million people in the 20th century alone. In his 1848 "Communist Manifesto," Marx outlined the basic tenets of communism. Tenet One: abolish private property. Tenet Two: Establish a progressive income tax. Why? Because whatever you cannot confiscate in land, you can confiscate in income.
          Thus, the graduated income tax finds its roots in the Marxist/Leninist/Communist concept of wealth redistribution. In Marxist theory, the land and money seized by the government would be given back to "the people." In reality, the Soviet government seized the land and money and kept it for elitist government bureaucrats.
          The U.S. adopted the graduated income tax as the 16th Amendment to the Constitution in 1913 (though some scholars claim it was never officially ratified). The same Soviet dynamic actually happens in our country today. Unaware of who is really getting the money, people think that high taxes are good for the poor and needy. Yet the elitist government bureaucrats benefit the most. Hopefully that can change.
          Last week, a joint statement by House and Senate leaders, the Treasury secretary and the National Economic Council director declared their commitment to tax reform. They stated that the mission of the forthcoming legislation is to "protect American jobs and make taxes simpler, fairer and lower for hard-working American families."
          When the tax system burdens its citizens and business owners while disincentivizing basic things like hard work and saving, this lowers risk-taking entrepreneurship and discourages investing. All in all, a country that doesn't work hard, doesn't save, doesn't create businesses and doesn't invest in businesses doesn't have much of an economy, does it? Tax reform measures could restore economic strength to American families and businesses.
          The joint statement continues: "There should be a lower tax rate for small businesses so they can compete with larger ones, and lower rates for all American businesses so they can compete with foreign ones." Furthermore, the objective is to create "a system that encourages companies to bring back jobs and profits trapped overseas."
          The U.S. has the highest corporate tax rate of any Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) industrialized country. When combining the federal and state corporate income tax rates, the average is over 39%. The average of other OECD developed nations is 25%. The high corporate tax rates force companies to move abroad in order to make their business profitable. A lower rate would encourage them to stay here, which would improve our economy and create American jobs, not overseas jobs.
          The joint statement also prudently rejects two tax options: a domestic consumption-based tax and a Border Adjustment Tax. A consumption-based tax comes in various forms but essentially is a higher sales tax (like the Value Added Tax or VAT tax prevalent in the European Union). Ideally, a consumption-based tax would shrink the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and appears to be more fair, because all people have to pay taxes. The problem faced by other countries that have adopted this system, however, is that they create or raise a sales tax but never really get rid of the income tax — which means citizens get doubly taxed.
          The statement also rejected the Border Adjustment Tax (BAT) that taxes imports, but not exports. In theory, this would incentivize American people to buy American-made products. In reality, everything imported would cost 20% more and would ultimately cost our economy jobs and businesses, according to the National Retail Federation.
          Critics of tax cuts claim that our country would not receive sufficient tax dollars to then contribute to the debt. However, these critics fail to see that the deficit is directly related to spending. According to the Congressional Budget Office, tax revenues (i.e. money collected) are above their historical averages. The Heritage Foundation puts it succinctly: "Washington has a deficit and debt problem because it spends too much, not because it collects too little in taxes."
          Despite the failures of liar-nObamaCare repeal, Republican tax reform has a high likelihood of happening in some form. While most bills require 60 votes and can be filibustered, there is an exception for budgetary bills called "reconciliation procedures." This only requires a simple majority in both the House and Senate with a signature from the president, which means that passing tax reform under reconciliation could actually happen.
          The Marxist graduated income tax was intended to destroy property, money and private businesses. Unless we realize that our burdensome tax system still intends to do the same thing, we will be at a loss. The good news is that our Republican Congress appears committed to reform. If they would lower tax rates for families and job-creating American businesses under reconciliation, that would be a win for the American people and for the economy.  ~The Patriot Post
