French tax authorities switch focus to monitoring “social media”

The All-Seeing Eye of the State French tax authorities now are using a powerful new tool to identify “tax cheats”: Facebook and other social media. Government agents scour through people’s social posts to see if people are using cars, meals, or housing which appear to be ‘outside their means.’ See here.

New York City SWAT raids of short-term rental industry

The Omnipotent State Strikes Again New York City’s government imposes so many taxes and regulations on short-term lodging entrepreneurs that the City recently sent dozens of armed agents to raid a condo complex. The accusation? That several of the condo owners were making a few bucks by lending out their condos to NYC tourists. See …

Another mass killing by former government employee

No group of Americans are more privileged than government “workers” and former government employees. Now another decorated former government combat veteran has opened fire on innocent private-sector Americans, killing 12. The former Marine Corps corporal, 28-year-old Ian David Long, was likely on permanent disability checks for PTSD. On November 7, he reportedly walked into a …

Campaign finance regulations place the private sector at a disadvantage

The Montana and federal constitutions supposedly guarantee equal protection of the laws. Yet governments everywhere place campaign restrictions on private sector political campaigns. Such regulations do not apply to government advocacy. Campaign finance regs infringe on the speech and press rights of the (nongovernment) citizenry, forcing private citizens to disclose to government every penny raised …

Another fake study: billionaires secretly promote libertarianism

America’s government-supporting colleges and universities spew a steady stream of pro-government academic “research.” Recent revelations show that it is ridiculously easy to get fake “scientific” studies published in government-supported peer reviewed scholarly journals–so long as the studies support government expansion and intervention. Now a trio of government-trusting academics have produced a “study” purporting to show …

Richest 1,409 taxpayers pay more tax than bottom 70 MILLION

A dominant narrative among socialists, progressives and sociology departments everywhere is that capitalists and the rich are controlling American ‘policy.’ Yet tax receipts tell the opposite story. The poorest 50 percent of Americans barely pay any income tax, while the richest few are forced to pay a majority of all federal income taxes. See here.

Poverty in the U.S. Was Plummeting—Until Lyndon Johnson Declared War On It

From FEE (Foundation for Economic Education) (quoting the Wall Street Journal): During the 20 years before the War on Poverty was funded, the portion of the nation living in poverty had dropped to 14.7% from 32.1%. Since 1966, the first year with a significant increase in antipoverty spending, the poverty rate reported by the Census …

Government programs will push millions into poverty in old age

A new study predicts that 40 percent of “middle class” Americans will likely live in poverty in their later years. Social Security and Medicare both incentivize Americans to save less, work less, and invest less. Harvard studies (which are likely quite conservative) suggest that Social Security alone caused the U.S. to be at least 3 …

Government “snow and ice data center” AGAIN caught faking its “multi-year ice extinction” charts

Agency deletes and publishes ‘correction forthcoming’ statement after being caught (yet again) by data analyst Tony Heller. The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) is a massively funded government institution in Boulder, Colorado. It receives funding from the University of Colorado, NOAA and NASA. For years the “data center” has put out a series …

U.S. Postal Service again seeks a massive increase in postage rates

The U.S. Postal Service is an unconstitutional monopoly which charges more than twice what a private firm would charge, yet which loses billions of dollars annually. The government postal “service” has every possible market advantage, yet can’t seem to operate profitably. The U.S.P.S. pays no corporate, income, or property taxes and owns some of the …
