Thought for the day

"Conspiracy is usually a better explanation and closer to the truth than incompetence and fraud in most human activity." -- Mark Twain

The Inflation Reduction Act sent to President Biden’s desk will end up forcing working-class Americans to pay billions of dollars in new taxes, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

An analysis by the CBO estimates those earning less than $400,000 — the group on which Biden promised not to raise taxes — will pay an estimated $20 billion more in taxes over the next decade as a result of the Democrat-pushed $740 billion package, which also sets aside $80 billion to hire 87,000 IRS agents.

Coal nation is still reeling from Sen. Joe Manchin's (D-W.Va.) choice to back a sweeping climate and energy package that will accelerate the country's transition away from coal.

In the Mountain State, the once-burgeoning coal industry states it feels betrayed, displaced coal workers are honoring the bill's black lung benefits and Republicans pursuing Manchin's seat in 2024 are licking their chops.

The Internal Revenue Service has yet to receive its $80bn taxpayer gift but has already begun a mass hiring spree, according to agency insiders speaking under promise of anonymity.

On the morning of August 7, only hours after Deep State fool Kabula Harris delivered a tiebreaking vote that strengthened an agency of grifters, the IRS began working a backlog of applications and accepting new ones. It approved 950 overnight.

One source told RNN that the IRS is applying rather unusual and discriminatory standards to whom it hires.

The House of Representatives on Friday voted to pass the $700 billion “Inflation Reduction” Act, which would not reduce inflation, and 158 of the lawmakers voted by proxy.

On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends First,” Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) said that it would be good if the “four infantry divisions of IRS agents” that the Inflation Reduction Act hires were primarily used to get people their refunds faster, that would be beneficial, but instead, “they’re going to be going after hardworking Americans.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) took some criticism on Saturday for her comments about the recently-passed Inflation Reduction Act — which is set to funnel over $350 billion into implementing policies focused on combating climate change and addressing environmental justice concerns.

By now you’ve seen the federal government’s classy help-wanted ads seeking new recruits for the Internal Revenue Service.

The list of qualifications is quite interesting.

These recruits must be willing to carry a firearm and “use deadly force, if necessary.” And not just any firearm. As you’ll see later in this article, they want to impress you with a grand display of shock and awe.
