Biden admin and the IRS are going after everyone. The gig workers who make 600 or more will need to pay taxes, previously they only had to pay if they made over 20k. The BLS manipulates the CPI numbers to keep the illusion alive. The [CB] is now ready to try to move the world into the [CBDC], the currency war has begun, they will attack all other alternative currencies. The [DS] propaganda outlet is now be exposed and it will be restructured once the people see the fake new system. The [DS] setup an insurgency and they been trying to slowly take over the country and turn it into something they want. Trump countered this with the counterinsurgency, but this tactic takes time, you need to show the people the system so the people can fight back. The plan is working and the people are countering the 16 year plan.
- A new IRS tax on gig workers would result in additional documentation that will create confusion among individual taxpayers as the agency does not have “centralized leadership” to deal with the expansion, according to a watchdog.
- Starting this year, a new IRS rule required that third-party payment networks like PayPal, Venmo, Amazon, and Square issue Form 1099-K when a user receives more than $600 in gross sales from goods and services transactions in a single year. Earlier, the threshold of gross sales was over $20,000.
- As a result, many taxpayers who never received Form 1099-Ks in the past will receive them this year, according to a Nov. 15 report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO). This could “exacerbate confusion among some taxpayers, such as gig workers, who may not understand the taxability of their payments and taxes owed.”
- “For example, some of these taxpayers may not know how to calculate profit or loss and may not understand the information reported on the form. This puts them at risk of inaccurately reporting their incomes to IRS or not meeting their tax obligations.”
- The IRS calculated that the new rule would result in 44 million Form 1099-Ks being filed in 2024, which is an increase of roughly 30 million. The tax agency “does not have a plan” to analyze these data to support its enforcement and outreach activities. “This limits its understanding of changes in taxpayer burden,” GAO said.
- In the latest sign of an economy edging deeper into troubled waters, more Americans are raiding their 401(k) retirement accounts to cover basic living costs, according to data released by Fidelity Investments on Monday.
- “Americans outside the wealthiest quintile have run out of extra savings generated early in the pandemic and now have less cash on hand than they did when the pandemic began,” notes Bloomberg‘s Alexandre Tanzi, citing Fed data.
- According to Fidelity, 2.3% took a hardship withdrawal in the third quarter, up significantly from the 1.8% rate observed in the same quarter of 2022. The top two reasons given for the third-quarter hardship withdrawals: avoiding foreclosure/eviction, and medical expenses.
- Withdrawals aren’t the only way to crack the 401(k) piggy bank. Fidelity says 2.8% took loans from their retirement balances, up from 2.4% last year. Even more concerning: Fully 17.6% of workers now have an outstanding loan against their 401(k).
- Days before Black Friday, one of the busiest shopping days of the year in the US, electronics retailer Best Buy posted weaker-than-expected third-quarter revenue and lowered guidance, warning about a deteriorating macro environment as “consumer demand has been even more uneven and difficult to predict.”
- Chief Executive Corie Barry said, “We are reporting better-than-expected profitability on slightly softer-than-expected revenue for the third quarter. These results demonstrate our ongoing, strong operational execution as we navigate through the near-term sales pressure our industry has been experiencing for the past several quarters.”
- However, Barry warned: “In the more recent macro environment, consumer demand has been even more uneven and difficult to predict. Based on the sales trends in Q3 and so far in November, we believe it is prudent to lower our annual revenue outlook. The midpoint of our annual non-GAAP diluted EPS guidance is slightly higher than the midpoint of our original guidance as we entered the year.”
- She said the electronics retailer is “prepared for a customer who is very deal-focused” this holiday shopping season. Or, as we’ve noted, “Choiceful.”

- FreightWaves report the freight market is experiencing a severe recession.
- Since early in 2022, many companies have gone out of business or severely cut back by letting employees go. Some of those companies were household names in the industry, such as Yellow Corp. and Convoy. Many others were much smaller, not known perhaps beyond their headquarters location. Nonetheless, the bankruptcies, closures and layoffs have piled up, and the financial and human losses have taken a toll.
- Plenty of people were surprised by the latest consumer price index (CPI) print which showed aggregate prices paid by consumers were roughly flat in the month of October. More surprising was the supposed 34 percent annual drop in the price of health insurance. You’d be hard pressed to find anyone whose health insurance costs went down over the last year, let alone down by a third. What makes this error so unforgivable is that the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has known about the problem for years.
- Those who have been closely following the monthly CPI reports in depth have also known about the problem for a while. The reason it got more attention in the October report was because BLS made some methodological changes that took effect last month. Unfortunately, the changes BLS made (more on that later) did not address the underlying problems with their methodology of measuring price changes in health insurance.
- BLS is essentially trying to measure is the difference between what the insured pays in premiums and the value of the benefits he or she receives from the insurance. Let’s say you pay $5,000 per year in premiums, and you receive total benefits of $4,500 over the course of the year. The $500 difference is called net premiums, and BLS measures it by looking at the retained earnings of health insurance companies. This is an indirect method of measurement and it has some serious flaws because many factors can affect retained earnings besides premiums received and benefits paid.
- The problems with the methodology were evident long before covid, however. Each fall, depending on the latest retained earnings data, the price of health insurance in the CPI often began an abrupt change which then smoothed out over time. In the long run, this subindex provided reasonably accurate data. Even in the short run, the subindex usually did not deviate too far from reality. There was a two-year runup in the index preceding the pandemic, which was not unlike what happened in 2011 and 2012 in annual percentage terms. The big difference between the two time periods was that 2011 and 2012 came on the heels of three years of deflation in health insurance.
- But by the fall of 2020, BLS incorporated the latest round of data, and it became clear that things were getting out of hand.
- So, what changes did BLS actually make? Not very meaningful ones, clearly.
- To prevent the sudden changes in the subindex’s level when new data are incorporated, retained earnings will use a moving average. To reduce the lag, the data is now updated twice a year instead of once a year. And that’s it. BLS is still using the retained earnings model as an indirect measurement of health insurance costs.
- The fact that people at BLS knew this was happening and did nothing to correct it is beyond atrocious. Major policy decisions are made based on data like the CPI, and it needs to be balls-on accurate, or at least as close as possible. That’s why in 2020 BLS made a series of changes to unemployment data to better estimate how many people lost their jobs during government-imposed closures of businesses.
- So, if such changes were made in 2020 during an unprecedented series of events, why was nothing done in 2021, 2022, or this year? That was an inexcusable oversight. Inflation over the last year has clearly been underestimated, giving the Federal Reserve an excuse to stop its rate hikes and to maintain only a slow rate of decline in the balance sheet.
- If this type of error happened at a private financial firm, literally everyone involved would be canned. And blackballed. Risk management would also be decimated. But because this is a government bureaucracy, nothing will happen. Actually, those involved may get promoted. That’s how you get the current Treasury Secretary.
- The International Monetary Fund (IMF) released a handbook for global central banks regarding the development and implementation of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs).
- The IMF’s “Central Bank Digital Currency Virtual Handbook” published last week pointed out that the increased use of CBDCs can “reduce dollarization” of the global economy—a situation where countries move away from relying on the U.S. dollar as a reserve currency. De-dollarization would push up borrowing costs in the United States, making loans expensive for businesses and individuals, thus affecting economic growth. Stock market values can also crash, reducing the savings and investments of Americans.
- In addition to de-dollarization, a CBDC “could increase risks of flight to safety from retail bank deposits in periods of market stress.” During times of market volatility, customers withdraw their deposits and move it into safe assets to avoid losing money in scenarios like bank collapses.
- If CBDCs were available, pulling out funds from a bank and putting them in such assets will come across as a safe option for many people, thus triggering a bank run.
- The organization pointed out that CBDCs could offer “a safe store of value and efficient means of payment, which can increase competition for deposit funding, raise banks’ share of wholesale funding, and lower bank profits.”
- In a Sept. 12 press release, Mr. Emmer pointed out that unlike decentralized cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, CBDCs are designed and issued by a government “and [transact] on a digital ledger that is controlled by that government.” This could give the administration the power to “surveil Americans’ transactions and choke out politically unpopular activity.”
- The bill imposes the following prohibitions:
- It prevents the U.S. Federal Reserve from issuing a CBDC directly to individuals, thus making sure that the Fed cannot mobilize itself as a retail bank and collect personal data of Americans.
- It prohibits the Fed from indirectly issuing a CBDC to individuals via an intermediary, thereby blocking the central bank from launching a retail digital currency through a two-tiered financial system.
- It bans the Fed from using any CBDC to implement its monetary policy. This ensures that the central bank is not able to use these currencies as a “tool to control the American economy.”
In March 2022, President Joe Biden signed an executive order asking the Fed to continue its ongoing research and experimentation of CBDCs and to evaluate the benefits and risks of a digital dollar.
- Talking about the issue, Mr. Emmer said that “agency reports to that executive order have made it clear that the Biden Administration is not only itching to create a CBDC, but they are willing to trade American’s right to financial privacy for a surveillance-style central bank digital currency.”
- “We’re not going to let this happen,” he said. The CBDC Anti-Surveillance State Act “ensures the United States digital currency policy is in the hands of the American people—not the Administrative State—so that it reflects our American values of privacy, individual sovereignty, and free market competitiveness.”
- On Sept. 20, the House Financial Services Committee passed the bill.

- Marxist Democrat Governor Kathy Hochul of New York has ramped up efforts to combat online hate speech, criticized as a state-sponsored ‘Ministry of Truth,’ an uncomfortable echo of Orwell’s dystopian surveillance apparatus where the government controls and manipulates information.
- At the core of Governor Hochul’s plan is a $3 million allocation to expand the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Unit’s Threat Assessment and Management training to colleges and universities.
- . These teams are working to identify violent threats. They’re not looking at your Instagram sunset post or your tweets about your favorite football team. And they’re not here to penalize anyone for their political views,” said Hochul during the press conference.
- “Today I’m directing the Director of the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services to develop media literacy tools for K-12 in our public schools. This will teach students, and even teachers, to help understand how to spot conspiracy theories and misinformation, disinformation, and online hate. Start talking about what we’re seeing out there. Give the teachers the tools they need to help these conversations in school,” Hochul announced.
- “And by teaching younger New Yorkers about how to discern between digital fact and digital fiction, we can better inoculate them from hatred and the spread of it and help prepare them for a very fast moving and often confusing world,” she added.

Good news for Elon Musk.
- A judge appointed by former President Donald Trump will oversee the high-profile lawsuit filed by Musk against the far-left organization Media Matters.
- The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas Fort Worth Division, alleges that Media Matters’ report was “malicious” and “intended to drive advertisers away from X.” The lawsuit also claims that Media Matters’ report was “based on false information” and that the organization “knowingly and recklessly published the false report in order to damage X’s reputation and business.”
- The Attorneys General from Missouri and Texas, Andrew Bailey and Ken Paxton announced that they will investigate Media Matters for potential fraudulent activity.
- The owner of the Truth Social platform, Trump Media & Technology Group Corp, has launched a lawsuit against 20 major media businesses, including The Guardian, The Hollywood Reporter, and The Miami Herald, among others.
- The case, filed in Sarasota County, Florida, in the Circuit Court of the Twelfth Judicial Circuit, claims a planned media onslaught involving false reporting of a $73 million loss by TMTG.
- Here are the lawsuit’s claims:
- “This case is about an unprecedented and seemingly coordinated media campaign, by no less than 20 major media outlets, to attack Trump Media & Technology Group (“TMTG”) and its social media platform, Truth Social, by falsely reporting that TMTG had lost $73 million.
- This number was an utter fabrication. Each defendant, in apparent coordination, reported the exact same false number within approximately 24 hours of one another, each citing to a public Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filing, in which the mystery $73 million loss appears nowhere.
- This was a coordinated effort to damage TMTG’s reputation, degrade the firm’s financial standing, freeze its access to capital, and torpedo the anticipated merger between Digital World Acquisition Corporation (“DWAC”) and TMTG.
- On November 13, 2023, DWAC submitted an amended S-4 registration statement with the SEC, which marked a major milestone toward the completion of the planned merger between DWAC and TMTG. TMTG publicly stated that the S-4 was good news for TMTG.
- Because this filing involves TMTG and President Trump’s Truth Social, however, these defendants ignored or downplayed TMTG’s public statements regarding a positive development. Instead, they deliberately or recklessly published false financial information to advance a preferred and coordinated narrative harmful to TMTG.
- All defendants ran nearly identical headlines that reported some variation of “Trump’s Truth Social” having lost “$73 million.”
- On November 14, 2023, TMTG contacted each of these media defendants, notifying them in writing of their error, specifying that their statements about a supposed $73 million loss were false and defamatory, and demanding a retraction and apology. To date, while some defendants have issued little-noticed “corrections” or “updates,” none have retracted the defamatory articles, publicly apologized, or taken any other steps to ameliorate the continuing damage.
- Although TMTG will continue pursuing its mission and planned merger with DWAC, the widespread misreporting across the entire media landscape has nonetheless deeply harmed TMTG, eroding faith in the company’s operations and management, and making it more difficult for TMTG to raise additional capital to fund operations while its planned merger with DWAC is pending SEC review. Existing investors and potential investors alike were concerned by the false stories.
- TMTG intends to hold these reckless and malicious media outlets to account for their false reporting and for their seemingly coordinated effort to destroy TMTG and Truth Social.

- Ukraine has lost over 13,700 troops and approximately 1,800 tanks and other heavy weaponry so far this month, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu relayed on Tuesday during a ministerial meeting.
- Russian forces have been actively thwarting Kiev’s attempts to breach their defensive lines and continue to reduce Ukraine’s military capacity, the senior official said. He claimed that Ukrainian soldiers were surrendering in droves after realizing the futility of their counteroffensive.
- The Russian minister issued his last assessment of Ukrainian casualties in late October, when he said they had surpassed 90,000 since the start of Kiev’s ill-fated counteroffensive in early July. During this week’s meeting, Shoigu described the cost paid by Ukrainian soldiers in the conflict as “colossal.”
- The Israeli government approved a deal that will see the Palestinian Hamas terror group release at least 50 female, child, and elderly hostages over four days, in return for a pause in the fighting in the Gaza Strip.
- In return, Israel will release a greater number of convicted Palestinians — though none who have been convicted of murder. Israel will resume the fight as soon as the hostages are delivered and the four-day period is over, as it works to destroy Hamas.
- The Times of Israel reported:
Some 12-13 hostages will be released per day as the ceasefire takes effect, the source says, adding that Israel will release women and minor prisoners, with each returning to the city or town where he lived prior to imprisonment, including the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
- The source said the Israeli side was able to achieve significant concessions by not caving to pressure from the Biden Regime and “international community” immediately: “prisoners convicted of murder will not be included in the deal, fuel will be brought into the Gaza Strip only on the days of the ceasefire and there will be no movement of Gaza citizens from the south of the Gaza Strip to the north under the terms of the ceasefire.”
- Former troops are suing the U.S. government for lost pay and benefits due to the Biden administration’s military vaccine mandate, one of the lawyers who successfully brought down the Anthrax vaccine told Breitbart News.
- Attorney Dale Saran, a retired Marine, and fellow attorneys Andy Meyer and Brandon Johnson are representing the former troops in three separate lawsuits they plan to turn into a class action lawsuit on behalf of all service members who were either kicked out or illegally ordered to stop drilling, resulting in loss of pay.
- Saran said the amount is in the “billions.”
- “It’s worth billions. That’s just flat-out. That’s what it is in backpay. It’s billions of dollars,” he said.
- The lawsuits were filed in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, which Saran said is a specialized court where illegal discharges are heard.
- “The Court of Claims has been around since the Reconstruction Era. It’s a very old court and kind of a weird one. But in any event, you can go there if you’ve got a claim and say, ‘Hey, I was illegally discharged, or the military did something to impede my pay,’ or whatever. The Court of Claims is where you go,” Saran said.
- Saran estimates there are 80,000 to 100,000 service members — both active-duty and reservists — who were impacted by the mandate. While more than 8,000 active-duty troops were kicked out, tens of thousands of reservists were told not to drill anymore or were moved to inactive status, he said.
- Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is leading the way in seeking accountability for Big Pharma companies by launching a lawsuit against Covid vaccine manufacturer Pfizer.
- The Texas lawsuit, filed under seal, is requesting discovery against Pfizer for its Covid vaccines under the Texas Medicaid Fraud Prevent Act (TMFPA).
- “This is a law enforcement action under TMFPA to recover taxpayer dollars spent as a result of fraudulent conduct committed by Pfizer Inc., Tris Pharma Inc., and Tris CEO Ketan Mehta,” the unsealed lawsuit states.
- The purpose of the lawsuit was clarified in a press release:
- The Office of the Attorney General’s Civil Medicaid Fraud Division has sued Pfizer, Inc., Tris Pharma, Inc. and Tris CEO Ketan Mehta for defrauding the Texas Medicaid program by providing adulterated pharmaceutical drugs to Texas children in violation of the Texas Medicaid Fraud Prevention Act, now known as the Texas Health Care Program Fraud Prevention Act (“THFPA”).
- Pfizer contracted with Tris, a drug manufacturer, to produce a pediatric attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder medication (“ADHD”), Quillivant XR. Pfizer knowingly distributed Quillivant to children on Medicaid despite the drug’s pattern of failing quality control tests due to flawed manufacturing practices. For years, Tris altered the drug’s testing method in violation of federal and state laws to ensure Quillivant passed regulatory hurdles and could continue to be sold.
- Despite knowing about these serious problems, Pfizer misrepresented to the Medicaid program that Quillivant was in compliance with federal and state law, and concealed from Medicaid decision-makers the fact that Quillivant was an adulterated drug. As a result of these misrepresentations and concealments, Pfizer and Tris obtained the benefit of taxpayer-funded Medicaid reimbursement for Quillivant.
- From 2012 to 2018, Pfizer and Tris continually manipulated Quillivant testing to hide poor manufacturing practices and defraud the Texas Medicaid program. During this time, many families complained that the medication failed to work.
- The lawsuit was initially filed under seal, but the judge has since unsealed the petition at the Attorney General’s request. To read the unsealed petition, click here.

- The Arizona Attorney General, Kris Mayes, has threatened legal action against Mojave County officials if they dare to hand-count ballots in the 2024 election.
- “As Arizona’s chief law enforcement officer, I have an obligation to warn you that the legal consequences would be serious,” AG Mayes warns.
- In the AG’s letter to Mojave County, Mayes purports to be concerned that verifying the accuracy of ballots would ‘undermine Arizona’s democratic process.’
- No kidding. This is from the letter:
- Re: Counting ballots manually instead of by automatic tabulating equipment Dear Supervisors: I understand that you will be voting tomorrow on whether to direct the Mohave County Elections Department to count the ballots for the 2024 elections by hand, rather than automatic tabulating equipment. Before you take that vote, I want to make sure you know that a “yes” vote would direct your Elections Department to violate the law. As Arizona’s chief law enforcement officer, I have an obligation to warn you that the legal consequences would be serious.
- The Attorney General is clearly concerned that anyone would verify that the electronic voting machine equipment indeed accurately records the votes of Arizonans.
- This is why Arizona’s elections have become a complete mockery of the democratic process.

Supporters describe it as a “new community-based leadership initiative” meant to “empower emerging leaders to bring people together.” At the forefront of the effort will be “local changemakers across the country.”
- I’ll go out on a limb and say its endgame is the enforcement of a collectivist narrative, the abolition of local control, and the top-down centralized control of all communities. After all, that’s the pattern of every Obama policy, most notably health care and education. Naturally, Obama put a hearts-and-flowers spin on the project:

- Currently, the initiative focuses on urban communities, with pilot programs in Chicago, Detroit, and Jackson, Mississippi. But the ultimate goal is to flood the nooks and crannies of all America’s local communities with “changemakers” and “influencers” who have been trained to recruit everybody into accepting a woke narrative and to silence any voice of dissent. That’s always what socialists mean when they claim to “bring people together.”
- Consider the term “change collective” and what it supposedly means: “to build a more equitable, welcoming, and inclusive democracy” that connects people of all persuasions. This is an Orwellian vision that might sound fine to politically untrained ears, but it represents a new phase & level in Alinskyite community organizing. The jargon is not hard to translate. It is “diversity, equity, and inclusion” (DEI) in a nutshell, the same woke agenda of DEI that requires identity politics and political correctness to be baked into every policy at every level.
Insurgency can be defined as ‘the organized use of subversion and violence to seize, nullify, or challenge political control of a region.’
Insurgents seek to subvert or displace the government and completely or partially control the resources and population of a given territory. They do so through the use of force (including guerrilla warfare, terrorism and coercion/intimidation), propa- ganda, subversion and political mobilization. Insurgents fight government forces only to the extent needed to achieve their political aims: their main effort is not to kill counterinsurgents, but rather to establish a competitive system of control over the population, making it impossible for the government to administer its territory and people. Insurgent activity is therefore designed to weaken government control and legitimacy while increasing insurgent control and influence.
Insurgents require supporters, recruits, safe havens, money, supplies, weapons and intelligence on government actions. A robust insurgency can be waged with the support of just a small percentage of a given population.
Counterinsurgency may be defined as ‘comprehensive civilian and military efforts taken to simultaneously defeat and contain insurgency and address its root causes’.
