U.S. Elites Revolt

Wow! Left-leaning Time magazine urges 65 million Americans not to pay taxes


Rejoice! A left-wing news outlet has called for 65 million 
Americans to not pay taxes to the United States government.
Time magazine‘s Mark Weston recently published an article that urged Hillary Clinton supporters to reject paying taxes “to the federal government until democracy is restored.”
Unfortunately, it isn’t a matter of everyone becoming libertarian all of a sudden. It is simply a case of sour grapes over the electoral college vote, which the Founding Fathers established to avoid the centralization of power in highly populated areas. It is also a case of hypocrisy, which we will get into shortly.
Here is what he writes in the piece:
“A national movement not to pay federal taxes in the future would put Republicans on notice: they do not have the right to impose a hard-right, second-place presidency on a moderate nation every dozen or so years. If the Republicans won’t help amend the Constitution so that America can resume being a democracy, then Democrats, lacking the representation that supporters of a future popular vote-winner ought to have in the executive branch, should not submit to paying taxes to the federal government.”
Indeed, this should be a joyous occasion, if it were a genuine movement by the left.
They are only rejecting the premise of paying taxes because Hillary Clinton did not win. If Clinton won and conservatives were pledging to not pay taxes for the next four years then they would be described as racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic and so on.
Remember when Tea Party activists protested taxation throughout Obama’s tenure? CNN ridiculed the Tax Day Tea Party protesters in Chicago in 2009. Here is the clip:
Remember Cliven Bundy? If you supported him because he didn’t want to pay taxes then you were a racist!
The hypocrisy is running rampant and will continue to crop up repeatedly over the next four years.
Everyone should just stop paying taxes to the government entirely. It doesn’t matter who is in office. For now, we should thank the Time writer for working to reduce the centralization of power and cut back on government largess. Hooray! The year 2016 has definitely been a superb year when the left starts to promote the refusal of paying taxes.

Geert Mak Pleit Nu Voor Vriendschap met Rusland

Ik kwam zojuist mijn oude vriend, de bestseller-auteur en mainstream-opiniemaker Geert Mak in de regen op straat tegen. Na elkaar te hebben begroet, vertelde Geert mij dat hij van oordeel is dat Europa zo snel mogelijk met Rusland om de tafel moet gaan zitten, om de opgelopen spanningen te deëscaleren. De VS heeft heel andere belangen dan 'wij,' aldus Mak, die benadrukte dat de macht van 'onze' Atlantische bondgenoot ingrijpend aan het afnemen is. Kortom, ik hoorde wat ikzelf al enige jaren op mijn weblog schrijf. Opvallend hoe een Nederlandse opiniemaker binnen zo'n betrekkelijk korte tijd zo wezenlijk van oordeel kan veranderen.  Immers, Mak’s gevaarlijke anti-Rusland hetze was een treffend voorbeeld van zijn opportunisme. Mei 2014 beweerde op de Hilversumse televisie de zogeheten ‘chroniqueur van Amsterdam, Nederland, Europa en de VS,’ dat er sprake was van een 'Russische gevaar,’ aangezien ‘meneer Poetin’ aan ‘landjepik’ deed en dat de Russische president d…

Native American Rape Survivors

A sign marks the entrance to White Earth Indian Reservation in Mahnomen County, Minn. (J. Stephen Conn / CC 2.0) WHITE EARTH RESERVATION, Minn.—Candice (not her real name) awoke with a start. Someone was pulling down her sweatpants. It was a male friend. “Stop!” she shouted. He kept groping her. She kicked him and he fell off the bed. She dashed out of the bedroom, tripping and tumbling down the stairs. Gripped with fear, she heard his footsteps behind her in the dark and forced herself to stand upright as she staggered out to the porch. Candice was still intoxicated. She got into her car and drove into a ditch. A white police officer pulled up. She struggled to hold back tears as she told him about the attempted rape. All the officer saw was a drunk and disorderly Native American woman. He dismissed Candice’s report of sexual assault as a lie she had made up to avoid getting a DUI. He did not take her to the hospital for a forensic exam. The sexual assault was not recorded in his pol…
