5 Ways To Keep A Tax Farm (Citizens) Producing

1

by Joe Jarvis, Activist Post:
The government depends on the citizens to produce, to create value from which the ruling classes can leech. They need to keep us working and spending in ways that they prescribe in order to insert themselves into transactions which would otherwise have nothing to do with them. Here are five ways that they keep the tax farm going.

1. Credit Cards and Debt

Credit cards, student loan debt, home loans, and car loans all represent an obligation to work full time. Once you have been saddled with debt, you cannot make the choice to take time off to pursue a business endeavor you are passionate about. You are on the hamster wheel.

The more debt you have, the more you have to earn, and the more taxes you will pay on those earnings. The less freedom you have to be productive in an alternative way.

What Role Has Israel Played In the Refugee Crisis?

by Phil Butler, New Eastern Outlook:
Europe has been content to blame its current societal and economic decline on malfeasant leaders like EU Jean-Claude Juncker, German Chancellor Angela Merkel or France’s ex-president François Hollande. If the people of Europe only knew the real actors behind, Israel would not be unscathed in this whole Arab Spring charade. Yes, Europe has the Israelis to thank for sapping what’s left of the EU’s strength. Here’s a story you won’t read in the New York Times, but one the Wall Street Journal will hint at.

This morning I was astonished to find a Wall Street Journal story that framed Israel’s support for Syrian insurgents against the government of President Bashar Hafez al-Assad. In a strange twist of the fates, by reporters Rory Jones in Tel Aviv, Noam Raydan in Beirut and Suha Ma’ayeh in Amman, Jordan, the newspaper owned by Genie Oil investor billionaire Rupert Murdoch suddenly decided to spill some of the beans on Israel’s role in the Syria. The WSJ story is but one of the recent revelations hinting at how Israel played a key role in the conflict that has destroyed Syria, and which has flooded Europe with refugees and potential terrorists. The lead from the WSJ is telling:

Is California Bailing Out Tesla through the Backdoor?

0

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:
Tesla will lose federal subsidies; so something big needs to be done.

The California state Assembly passed a $3-billion subsidy program for electric vehicles, dwarfing the existing program. The bill is now in the state Senate. If passed, it will head to Governor Jerry Brown, who has not yet indicated if he’d sign what is ostensibly an effort to put EV sales into high gear, but below the surface appears to be a Tesla bailout.

Tesla will soon hit the limit of the federal tax rebates, which are good for the first 200,000 EVs sold in the US per manufacturer beginning in December 2009 (IRS explanation). In the second quarter after the manufacturer hits the limit, the subsidy gets cut in half, from $7,500 to $3,750; two quarters later, it gets cut to $1,875. Two quarters later, it goes to zero.

Our Disneyland Economy

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
Disneyland is known as a place “where dreams come true” and where every story always has a happy ending. But there is going to be no happy ending for the U.S. economy. Wishful thinking has resulted in one of the greatest stock market rallies in history in recent months, but like all childhood fantasies, it won’t last. The real economy continues to deteriorate, and we can see this even right outside of the gates of Disneyland. Every night growing numbers of homeless people sleep on the pavement just steps away from “the happiest place on Earth”. It can be fun to “play make believe” for a while, but eventually reality always catches up with us.

HOW TO SAVE OUR NATION & OUR LIVES BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE — Catherine Austin Fitts

by SGT, SGT Report:
Former US Assistant Housing Secretary and Publisher of the Solari Report Catherine Austin Fitts joins me to discuss the TRILLIONS of dollars missing from the coffers of the DOD, NASA and HUD.

Catherine says that the same forces the have looted our nation are also interested in destroying the US Constitution. Fitts explains:

The people who run this country want to implement slavery. They believe in slavery. They practice slavery. They will chip you. They will take your kids and use them for pedophilia, they will try to make pedophilia legal.

CNN Employees Running Scared, Locking Down Their Social Media Accounts – #CNNDirt Goes Viral As Phase Two Begins In The CNN Vs The Internet War

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:
Brief Recap: CNN has had an unbelievably bad couple of months where they have been busted publishing fake news, forced to retract, delete and apologize for one of those “stories”, three employees have been forced to resign, another false story had to be changed, re-headlined because the information one of their “sources” gave them was completely wrong, Project Veritas posted undercover videos of CNN employees admitting the “Russia” narrative was BS, and a “nothingburger,” and then to top it off, they decided to hunt down some random internet user who created a meme that President Trump tweeted out, threatened to reveal his identity if his “bad behavior” continued, which saw the creation of a viral hashtags #CNNBlackmail and #CNNMemeWars.

McCain Is Plotting Regime Change in Washington. When Will Trump Fight Back?

1

by Tom Luongo, Russia Insider:
The time is now for Trump to use whatever leverage he can muster against McCain and marginalize the neocon wing of the GOP

When I look back on the events of the last week I see one common theme, Donald Trump is pushing back against his biggest enemy, John McCain. From the moment Trump and Vladimir Putin announced the ceasefire zones at the G-20, the U.S. opposition went into full anti-Russian meltdown mode.

Donald Trump Jr’s Russian lawyer troubles were held back to be used to control the narrative post G-20. After that we have the slow drip of similarly thin evidence of the Trump campaign canoodling with the enemy last year to dig up dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Canadian Government Offering Citizens Reward Points for “Good” Behavior

by James Corbett, The International Forecaster:
…what if we had governments coming up with the desired outcomes, behavioral scientists determining how to manipulate users into producing those outcomes, and game designers figuring out the best way to put those ideas into a game? Wouldn’t that be the most powerful and effective way to alter the habits and behaviors of a given population?

I warned you in 2010 when I published Episode 145 of my podcast, “You Are Being Gamed.” I warned you in 2015 when I released my video on “Sesame Credit: China’s Creepy New Social Engineering Experiment“. I warned you last year in these very pages when I penned my article detailing how “The CIA’s ‘Pokémon Go’ App is Doing What the Patriot Act Can’t.
