Federal Income Tax is Voluntary, Admits IRS Director

Federal Income Tax is Voluntary

“Federal income tax in the US

(and in many other countries with a Rothschild-controlled Central Bank) only goes towards paying off the national debt. Outrageous as it may be, there is not a single cent of all the income taxes collected from US citizens that goes towards a single service or benefit the US Government provides. Want proof of this? The Grace Commission released a report in January, 1984, under US President Ronald Reagan, which stated that “100% of what is collected [in income taxes] is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal Debt and by Federal Government contributions to transfer payments. In other words, all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services taxpayers expect from government.””

Increase in Fracking Leads to Spike in Illegal Disposal of Radioactive Waste

Increase in Fracking Leads to Spike in Illegal Disposal of Radioactive Waste

“Oilfields are spinning off thousands of tons of low-level radioactive trash as the U.S. drilling boom leads to a surge in illegal dumping and states debate how much landfills can safely take.

State regulators are caught between environmental and public health groups demanding more regulation and the industry, which says it’s already taking proper precautions. As scientists debate the impact of small amounts of radiation on cancer risks, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says there’s not enough evidence to say what level is safe.”

Curcumin (Turmeric) Prevents Toxic Effects of Flouride (Which is in 90% of Municipal Water Systems)

Curcumin (Turmeric) Prevents Toxic Effects of Flouride (Which is in 90% of Municipal Water Systems)

”  It has been observed that subjects with the condition known as fluorosis, a mottling of tooth enamel caused by excessive exposure to fluoride during tooth development, also have neurodegenerative changes associated with a form of oxidative stress known as lipid peroxidation (rancidity). Excess lipid peroxidation in the brain can lead to a decrease in total brain phospholipid content. Owing to these well-known mechanisms of fluoride associated neurotoxicity and neurodegeneration, the researchers identified the primary polyphenol in the spice turmeric — known as curcumin – as an ideal agent worth testing as a neuroprotective substance.  Previous research on curcumin indicates that it is capable of activing as an antioxidant in 3 distinct ways by protecting against: 1) singlet oxygen 2) hyrodxyl radicals and 3) superoxide radical damage. Also, curcumin appears to raise endogenous glutathione production in the brain, a major antioxidant defense system.”

McDonalds Managers Instructed to Intentionally Deprive Workers of Wages Earned

“I call on McDonald’s to pay all employees the wage they deserve – and ensure that no employee is having their pay withheld illegally. On March 13, workers at restaurants in New York, California, and Michigan brought lawsuits against McDonald’s and franchisees against illegal pay practices. From forcing employees to work off the clock, to denying breaks, to cutting overtime pay, withholding pay makes it all the harder for fast food workers to pay their rent and care for their children. No one deserves to be robbed by their boss – it’s time to make sure every McDonald’s employee receives the legal wage they deserve.”

Will 90’s Syndrome Lead to the Collapse of the Chinese Economy?

Will 90’s Syndrome Lead to the Collapse of the Chinese Economy?

“Fuelled by a steady diet of cheap money, these companies kept adding capacity with no regard to profitability or return on capital. They simply focused on producing more stuff and expanding their size. They employed more people, and everyone was happy.

But, all the while, they were borrowing more and more money, until eventually they collapsed under the debt load when liquidity dried up.

Before Korea, the exact same thing happened in Japan, and a giant, unsustainable debt binge brought the “miracle economy” to its knees.”

US Government Sues Sprint for Charging too Much for Wiretapping Service

US Government Sues Sprint for Charging too Much for Wiretapping Service

“The US government today filed suit against Sprint, alleging that the company overcharged government agencies when submitting expense reimbursement requests for wiretap operations that spied on Sprint customers.

Sprint “knowingly submitted false claims to federal law enforcement agencies, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), US Marshals Service (USMS), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and others, by including unallowable costs in their charges for carrying out court orders authorizing wiretaps, pen registers, and trap devices,” US attorneys wrote in a suit filed today in US District Court in Northern California.

Sprint denies the allegations, which the US says cost the government $21 million.”

Switzerland’s Simple Idea; Support Your Citizens so that they can Contribute More to their Country’s Culture

Switzerland’s Simple Idea; Support Your Citizens so that they can Contribute More to their Country’s Culture

“Switzerland may start paying every adult (whether they work or not) a salary of over $2000 per month, based on the idea that their citizens will have more time to devote to things they are intrinsically interested in, instead of spending the majority of their time worrying about how they are going to survive, as many individuals with entry level positions find it hard to meet their needs.  The income initiative promises every Swiss citizen a living wage , so they can always survive without basic financial worry.”
