Revisiting the Flat Tax

The next time Republicans control all three branches of government they may wish to visit an old idea - the flat tax. When magazine publisher and Republican Steve Forbes ran for president in 1996, the flat tax was at the heart of his campaign.

BAUER: Nancy Pelosi Said Last Summer, Joe Biden 'Does Not Have That Power' of Student Debt 'Forgiveness'

In what were called "explosive comments" last summer, House Speaker Pelosi told reporters President Biden did not have the authority to cancel student loan debt. "He can postpone [payments] ... but he does not have that power [of debt forgiveness]," said Pelosi. So, why today is the kid from an upper-middle class family whose parents make up to $125,000 a year – or $250,000 for married couples – deserve debt relief when working-class families who couldn’t afford college and didn't go get nothing?

MOORE: Has Modern Environmentalism Become a Pagan Religion?

The great Rush Limbaugh used to say, "The modern environmentalists worship the created, not the creator." As only 1-in-20 people say "Climate Change" is the No. 1 problem facing our country, last week Joe Biden signed the fiscally unconscionable $750 billion tax-&-spend "Inflation Reduction Act" and gave another $369 billion to the climate change-industrial complex. As Americans want and desperately need lower inflation and more prosperity, this law delivers neither.

Federalist Editor Rips Apart Mitch McConnell's Remarks About the GOP Having Bad Senate Candidates

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) gave Democrats a boost recently. Whether it was intentional or not is irrelevant at this point—when the Senate Republican leader says that his party virtually has no chance of retaking the 50-50 Senate, people take notice.

SCHLICHTER: Liz Cheney’s Humiliating Defeat Is Another Sign We, the New Republican Party, Are Winning

Look, no one is going to just hand us our nation back. These pukes are not going to purge themselves. The enemy's not going to shrug and go back to their faculty lounges and Trader Joe's white wine sections and leave the country to us normal people. We have to fight for it – every day and in every way, forever.

HANSON: Being Appalled at the FBI's Raid of a Former President Isn't 'Revolutionary,' Democrats

As President Biden's polls continue to stagnate and the Mid-Term Election approaches, we're once again being serially treated to another Democrat Melodrama about an impending right-wing violent takeover. This year, and this time, the alleged threat is a desire for a "Civil War." But in fact, over the last five years its "The Left" who has openly talked of tearing America apart – disobeying immigration law, packing the Supreme Court, and more.

No Border Patrol or Police Funding to Stop Rampant Crime, Doubling the IRS Budget Adding 87,000 IRS Employees

The Biden White House has a lot of nerve doubling the IRS Budget and adding 87,000 IRS employees in a so-called "Inflation Reduction Act" that won't reduce inflation. What's worst about this vault of money for 150,000 IRS Agents is that Democrats have voted down more money for police to stop rampant crime and they've voted down more Border Patrol Agents to keep drugs and criminals out of America. These are the most warped funding priorities I've seen in 30 years.

THOMAS: If This Is an 'Even-Handed Application of The Law,' Can Merrick Garland Be Serious?

No foreign power would ever hope to undermine the pillars of our United States as successfully as its being done today. From the Steele Dossier, Russia "collusion," the labeling of Trump as a Russian "asset," the Mueller Report, and the Biden White House's refusal to enforce our immigration laws, when it comes to equal application of the law and due process, this Justice Department and administration has done just the opposite.

HUNTER: If Donald Trump Really Wants to Stick It in the Democrat's Eye, Here's the Best Revenge

The absurdity of last week just cannot be overstated: A senile President, overseeing a feckless Attorney General, ordering a raid on the house of a former President, while they scream about what a “threat to democracy” the mere existence of former President Donald Trump is? ​​​​​​​The question is: What does Donald Trump do now? Well... I have a suggestion.

SCHLICTER: Pull Your Head Out of Your Pelosi – Our Nation Is Under Attack!

Let me save us all some time here while we wait for the Elusive Secret Facts: This was an atrocity – a disgraceful, disgusting, and dangerous escalation of the Democrat's War on Us Normals. Designed to frame Donald Trump and scare his growing legion of supporters into oppression – we're all 2nd Class Citizens by the way – there’s no hidden, secret Trump crime the FBI or DOJ are going to find. Pull your head out of your Pelosi – Our Nation Is Under Attack!

YORK: With 86,852 New IRS Employees, the 'Inflation Reduction Act' Is a Ruse for Previously Gullible Voters

Why would Democrats in Congress, in one bill – the so-called "Inflation Reduction Act" – increase the IRS's workforce by 92% as Americans are suffering under the burden of 40-year high inflation and record gas prices at the pump? It doesn't seem possible. It certainly doesn't make sense. The $80 billion given to the IRS in this bill is too much, too fast, with too little purpose. And all Americans should be concerned about it.

Is 'The Swamp' Criminalizing Opposition? FBI Raid of Trump Home Unleashes Political Firestorm

The FBI's invasion of Donald Trump's Florida home is an extraordinary, historic development in that it targeted a former President of the United States – and set off a political uproar he could use to stoke his possible 2024 White House bid. Here's why Democrat's & the FBI’s continued Trump-on-the-Brain campaign against a potential 2024 Presidential Candidate ironically solidifies him as the nominee – should he run.

Yes, Biden’s War on the Oil & Gas Industry Is Driving Up Shortages – and High Gas Prices

​​​​​​​It won’t take much convincing; American families are feeling the effects of higher prices at the pump and inflation in their pocketbooks daily. ​​​​​​​So, what’s holding back American oil and gas producers? Take it from me, it certainly isn’t because of a lack of willingness to grow – and it certainly isn’t because of a lack of domestic resources to drill for and develop. The answer is that U.S. producers are shackled.

CHRISTIAN: In Biden’s 'Build Back Broker Agenda,' Democrats Tax & Spend on Green New Deal During Inflationary Recession

Few ideas are more economically disastrous than debt spending in an inflationary environment – or raising taxes during a recession. And Democrats are planning on doing just that. Various pieces of the Biden-Schumer-Manchin "Green New Deal" spending plan raises taxes by $326 billion, and increases regulations on energy production that will further drive up energy costs across-the-board. Americans need hope.

HUNTER: Democrats Want 87,000 New IRS Agents? Monkeypox? The World's Going Crazy

That Schumer/Manchin “tax & pay off liberal donors” bill contains a provision to hire 87,000 new IRS agents. First, if they are ever hired, they will target the middle class – the rich have more cash, but there are so many more people in the Middle Class that the IRS has to come after us to get the amount of money they need. So, when Democrats claim this is about "getting the rich to pay their fair share,” they are lying.

Is Cocaine Mitch Blowing It?

He handed Biden a gun control win by letting 15 Republicans vote for it. Then he allowed the CHIPS Act to pass but got played when Schumer and Joe Manchin resurrected a reconciliation bill. Political power is about the present, not the past, and right now, Mitch looks weak and ineffective.

The Left’s Special Kind of Stupid

Democrats are that dumb AND their supporters are particularly stupid – which way the scales tilt in any particular instance depends on the participants. It must be a liberating feeling to be one of those people going on TV knowing that no matter how ignorant you are, no one is going to know the truth or question you out of fear of being destroyed by the left-wing mob.

HANSON: Why Americans Have Lost Trust in the Nation's Experts

All the depressing examples have one common denominator: Elite (government) experts and degreed professionals massaged and warped their knowledge to serve some political and/or ideological master, rather than tell the truth. In the process, they caused untold damage to their country and fellow citizens. Is it any wonder the public's lost confidence in their degreed and supposedly credentialed elites?

Joe Manchin Shows His True Colors – and the Country's Suffering with 9.1% Inflation will Only Get Worse

Everyone with half a brain knows that the worst time to raise taxes is during a recession, and the recent deal between far-left Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin will do just that. The bill's “Inflation Reduction Act” title is a dead give away on what Democrat's are trying to do – and spending $433 billion more while the country's suffering with 9.1% inflation will only push inflation higher.

SCHLICTER: Media Hacks Pout, As Republicans Finally Treat Them Like the Trash They Are

The media is our enemy, and it's wonderful to finally see Republicans treating reporters as what they are – digital vermin whose sole function is to shrimp and market The Swamp. There's been a rash of media handwringing because GOP superstars like Ron DeSantis aren't allowing them access to candidates or events. So what’s the big deal – we’re not in a recession, right? Republicans are getting it. Finally.
