Russia to Remain a Land of the Flat Income Tax


from Russia Insider:

Russia will not introduce a progressive income tax system, First Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said on October 29, but admitted Russian inequality inequality is too high.

“We are told: ‘let’s adopt a more progressive tax system for our citizens’. There are pros and cons to this. We know that rich people are clever, and they will find ways to circumvent this decision. They can just take the money out of the country. On the other hand, the flat rate of 13% has already been settled, and it would probably be wrong to change legislation in this regard,” Siluanov said.

Why Russia, Turkey and China Are Buying Gold at Record Pace

from Sputnik News:

Central banks around the world are increasing their gold reserves at an incredible pace. Over the last three months alone, they have purchased gold worth 5.82 billion dollars, which is roughly a quarter more than the year earlier. It is noteworthy that the Bank of Russia and the Turkish Central Bank have broken a record in terms of gold purchases.

Gold Rush

According to data provided by the World Gold Council, central banks have bought as much as 148 metric tons of gold, which is 22 percent more than the same period last year. The Bank of Russia is leading in the purchases, which stand at 92 metric tons. Russia previously bought a comparable amount of the precious metal only at the height of the 1993 market reforms.

Hawkins: If Gun Control Is So Popular, Why Are Democrats Avoiding It?

by Awr Hawkins, Breitbart:

Democrats have spent years telling us Americans want more gun control yet now, four days before midterm elections, there are no candidates for federal office making gun control the central plank of their campaign.

In fact, Senate candidates like Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and incumbents like Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), are fighting to hide their gun control support from constituents.

A senior Russian diplomat confirms: “Russia is preparing for war” – is anybody listening?

from The Saker:

Andrei Belousov, deputy director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Department of Nonproliferation and Arms Control, has recently made an important statement which I shall quote in full and then provide a translation.

Translation: “Recently at a meeting the United States stated that Russia is preparing for war. Yes, Russia is preparing for war, I can confirm it. Yes, we are preparing to defend our homeland, our territorial integrity, our principles, our values, our people. We are preparing for such a war. But there is a major difference between us and the United States. Linguistically, this difference is just in one word, in both Russian and English: Russia is preparing for war while the United States is preparing a war” (emphasis added).

The Unexpected RETURN OF #QAnon!!! #NewQ #GreatAwakening

from Neon Revolt:

Guys, I wasn’t expecting this at all.

So much has happened recently in the #QAnon-related space that… it’s almost been hard to keep up, even with Q’s absence.

And you’ll recall that I said I thought Q was going to return on 11/9, but man-oh-man, I was wrong. Sort of.

Q came back with two drops today, after 23 Days of silence. Why?

“Can We Trust Trump to Save America? He May Be Our Last Hope”

by Patrick J. McShay, State of the Nation:

Is it just me or is the timing of these so-called pipe bombs recently sent to leading Democrats including the Obama’s, the Clinton’s, John Brennan, George Soros, Mad Maxine Waters and the traitor who had a spy with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood working as her IT guy, Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Shultz, awfully convenient with the election just two weeks away.

The trolls at CNN and MSNBC are already blaming Trump and his supporters. Have they thought to question Sheila Jackson Lee and her staff?

Here’s a Look Inside the First Aid Kit of an Army Medic


by Chuck Hudson, The Organic Prepper:

Note from Daisy: What’s in the “perfect” first aid kit? There are so many different kits out there all claiming to be there claiming to be the very best that it can get a little confusing. So I asked my good friend, Chuck Hudson, to share some lists with us. Chuck is a former Army Medic and Scout leader, and he loves to share his wisdom. Below you can find two very comprehensive lists to help you create your own “perfect kit.”

Me, I’m an old medic. I played with the Infantry for years. One thing my beloved grunts taught me was KISS. Keep It Simple Stupid.  I was also an old Scout Master. For the most part, Scouts do NOT have a lot of money. So today we are going to talk about simple specialized first aid kits.  My scouts each carried a basic personal first aid kit. No, it would not take care of a rifle round to the upper chest. But it would take care of 90% of the injuries that could KILL you in a poop has hit the fan situation.
