Ron Paul: Stop Taxing Tips

Eliminating taxes on tips will provide some (limited) relief from the Federal Reserve’s inflation tax.

Donald Trump recently promised that, if he wins the November election, he will support eliminating taxes on tips as part of his proposal to renew and expand the 2017 tax cuts. This tax law change would be a long overdue boost for millions of Americans.

Tips often comprise a substantial portion of the earnings of waiters and waitresses, as well as of other service-sector employees. However, unlike regular wages, a service-sector employee usually has no guarantee of, or legal right to, a tip. Instead, the amount of a tip usually depends on how well an employee satisfies his customers. Since the amount of taxes one pays increases along with the size of tips, taxing tips punishes workers for doing a superior job!

Many service-sector employees are young people trying to make money to pay for their education, or single parents struggling to provide for their children. Making tips tax free gives these hard-working Americans an immediate pay raise. A person may use this pay raise to devote more resources to his children’s or his own education, to save for a home or retirement, or to start a business.

Eliminating taxes on tips will provide some (limited) relief from the Federal Reserve’s inflation tax. This tax results from the decline in the dollar’s purchasing power caused by the Federal Reserve’s monetization of federal debt. The inflation tax is the worst form of tax because it is hidden. Thus, most people will not blame the Fed for higher prices. The inflation tax is also regressive, as price inflation is more of a burden to those at the lower end of the income scale than to billionaires. The Fed-created price inflation has forced many Americans to work two jobs.

This is not to suggest that reducing taxes on tips will fully compensate working people for the income they lose to the inflation tax. The best way Congress can help relieve the people of the inflation tax is to cut federal spending that leads to the Federal Reserve monetizing debt. Congress should also pass a law forbidding the Fed from monetizing debt by purchasing federal debt instruments.

It is also long past time to stop talking about tax cuts “costing” the government money. Talking about tax cuts in terms of how much money they cost the government, as opposed to how much money they leave in the hands of the people, accepts the premise that the government has a greater moral claim to the money than those who actually earned it. In truth, saying cutting taxes cost the government money makes as much sense as saying stopping a mugger from taking everything in your wallet “cost” the mugger money. Instead of worrying about how much tax cuts cost the government, the politicians should worry about how much welfare and warfare spending cost taxpayers.

The idea that tax cuts should only be supported if they promote “efficiency” should also be rejected. All tax cuts promote efficiency because, as economist and Ludwig von Mises Institute President Thomas DiLorenzo put it, “private individuals always spend their own money more efficiently than government bureaucrats do.” Instead of worrying about whether the government can “afford” tax cuts or whether tax cuts promote economic efficiency, those concerned about the government deficit should focus their efforts on reducing government spending. If the government stopped trying to run our lives and run the world, there would be no need to punish hard-working [people].

Biden Campaign Abortion Propaganda Dismantled

Democrats launch abortion fearmongering effort

The Democrats and their media lapdogs are simultaneously launching a new propaganda push on behalf of the Joe Biden campaign, this time focusing on the hot button topic of abortion.

The official X accounts for Biden and Kamala Harris both posted video ads on Monday pushing extremely misleading claims about abortion access and care in America.

“Donald Trump is the sole person responsible for this nightmare. Listen to Kaitlyn’s story in our new ad,” Biden wrote.

The Biden video features a woman named Kaitlyn Joshua describing being turned away from two emergency rooms in Louisiana when she sought treatment for a miscarriage.

Joshua claims she was denied service as “a direct result of Donald Trump overturning Roe v. Wade” before randomly noting he’s a convicted felon.

The Biden ad also suggests Trump “will let women and doctors be punished” for committing abortions.

It’s worth noting Donald Trump did not overturn Roe v. Wade as that decision was made by the Supreme Court.

While Democrats are now using Joshua’s story to pull on the heartstrings of the American people, it seems as if her traumatic experience may be the fault of establishment media propaganda in the aftermath of Roe v. Wade being overturned.

Mainstream media unnecessarily instilled fear into some health care providers by falsely claiming they could be jailed for performing ANY abortions.

Meanwhile, the anti-abortion group Louisiana Right for Life has been at the forefront of exposing the strange and dangerous misconception by some practitioners that they’ll get in legal trouble if they assist a patient suffering a miscarriage.

Louisiana Right for Life Communications Director and Adoption Education Director Sarah Zagorski told the Guardian last year, “Even though Louisiana has some of the tightest restrictions against abortion in the US, Joshua was legally entitled to the care she sought under an exception to the ban which involves miscarriages.”

“It was just a gross misunderstanding of the law from the practitioners handling the case, unfortunately. The law itself is very specific about this. This should not have been how this happened,” she added.

So, practitioners are either being misled by left-wing abortion propaganda, or they’re purposely denying women care in order to make conservatives look bad.

The Kamala Harris campaign ad told viewers the Supreme Court “took a constitutional right” away from American citizens despite the fact abortion is not mentioned in the U.S. Constitution.

Wrapping up the brief ad, Harris said Joe Biden will sign off on abortion access if Congress passes a Roe v. Wade-style law.

Two years ago today, the Supreme Court took a constitutional right from the people of America — from the women of America.

Harris also made an appearance on MSNBC‘s “Morning Joe” on Monday, sitting alongside incest rape survivor Hadley Duvall.

The 22-year-old Duvall became an abortion rights activist after she was raped by her stepfather as a child, and will soon join first lady Jill Biden in Pennsylvania to support the Biden 2024 campaign.

Duvall told MSNBC viewers every woman in America’s “life is at stake in this election” because Trump will allegedly make all abortion illegal nationwide.

“If you have a woman in your life, her life is at stake in this election. It does not matter if she is 12 or 34… Women, we don’t get to choose a whole lot, and you at least can choose who you can vote for.”

“[A Trump win] would mean the unimaginable. It would mean [women] have no options… It would just be one rule for everybody, and that would be no abortions. And that is a very, very dangerous world for women.”

Of course, Trump has repeatedly stated on the record the decision to prosecute people in relation to abortions should be left up to the states.

According to ABC News, Duvall was first sexually abused by her stepfather when she was 5-years-old and learned she was pregnant with his child at the age of 12 only to miscarry the baby about two weeks later.

The media narrative is that now, with the overturning of Roe v. Wade triggering “a near-total abortion ban in Kentucky,” other kids in a situation like Duvall’s might be forced to carry the baby.

However, since she suffered a miscarriage and aborting a miscarried baby in Kentucky is legal, the situation would have ended with the exact same result.

The media blitz comes on the 2 year anniversary of Roe v. Wade being reversed, and also signals the topic will be one of the top issues for the Biden campaign in the 2024 election.

CNN Host Melts Down When Trump Spokeswoman Notes Jake Tapper Compared Don To Hitler

‘I’m going to stop this interview if you continue to attack my colleagues!’ shouted CNN’s Kasie Hunt.

CNN anchor Kasie Hunt is being slammed online over her recent on-air freakout during an interview with the Donald Trump campaign’s national press secretary Karoline Leavitt on Monday.

Leavitt mentioned CNN anchor Jake Tapper had repeatedly compared Trump with Adolf Hitler and Hunt became visibly angry, claiming the campaign spokeswoman was “attacking” her colleague.

“I’m going to stop this interview if you continue to attack my colleagues!” Hunt fumed.

“I am stating facts that your colleague has stated in the past,” Leavitt answered.

However, this just triggered Hunt even more and she booted Leavitt from the program.

In an X post following the incident, Hunt wrote, “You come on my show, you respect my colleagues. Period. I don’t care what side of the aisle you stand on, as my track record clearly shows.”

Many people online pointed out Leavitt was simply repeating Tapper’s own words, arguing that hardly equates to an “attack.”

“Attack my colleague” by citing his own words.

Autistic Twins Got Better After Reducing Toxins — Case Study

Autistic Twins Got Better After Reducing Toxins — Case Study

Cleaning up one’s diet can dramatically improve the psychological disorder of autism, according to a recent case study.

A case study published earlier this month detailed how a pair of autistic twins experienced significant improvements to their condition after their parents reduced their toxin exposure.

“A parent-driven, multidisciplinary, therapeutic intervention involving a variety of licensed clinicians focusing primarily on addressing environmental and modifiable lifestyle factors was personalized to each of the twin’s symptoms, labs, and other outcome measures,” the case study said in the ‘Abstract’ section. “Dramatic improvements were noted within several months in most domains of the twins’ symptoms, which manifested in reductions of Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist (ATEC) scores from 76 to 32 in one of the twins and from 43 to 4 in the other twin. The improvement in symptoms and ATEC scores has remained relatively stable for six months at last assessment.”

Autism is a neurological developmental disorder characterized by a broad spectrum of social ineptness, meaning that it is caused by a malfunction of the brain. These issues often stem from brain damage, including metal toxicity from vaccines.

The researchers provided background information on the prevalence of the brain disorder of autism.

“Autism diagnoses were exceptionally rare prior to the latter decades of the twentieth century. In the early 1990s, the prevalence of autism among children in the United States was still estimated to be just 1 in 2000 [1]. Even after the autism spectrum disorders (ASD) diagnostic criteria were subsequently expanded throughout the 1990’s, CDC data suggested that only 1 in 150 children had an ASD diagnosis in 2000 [2,3,4,5,6] The most recent data from the CDC revealed that 1 in 36 children had an ASD diagnosis in 2020, representing an over 300% increase in the past twenty years utilizing similar diagnostic criteria,” the case study said in the ‘Introduction’ section.

It was recently reported that 1 in 9 U.S. children are now autistic due to massive amounts of brain damage.

Vaccines indeed seem to cause autism.

Notably, the researchers provided information on common causes and triggers of autism.

“Specific modifiable environmental and lifestyle risk factors for ASD include exposure to environmental toxicants [45,46,47], poor diet [29,48,49,50,51,52,53,54,55,56,57,58,59,60,61,62,63], disruption of the gut microbiota [64,65,66,67,68,69,70,71,72,73,74], excessive exposure to non-native electromagnetic fields (EMFs) [75,76,77,78,79,80,81,82,83,84], and accumulation of heavy metals,” the case study said in the ‘Introduction’ section.

Also in the ‘Introduction’ section, the researchers detailed various autism therapies related to dietary restrictions and nutrient supplementation.

“These include dietary interventions [48,62] such as gluten and casein-free [87,88,89,90,91,92,93,94,95], GAPS, a specific carbohydrate diet [48], low glutamate [96,97,98,99,100,101], and ketogenic [102,103,104,105,106,107,108,109,110,111]. While the effectiveness of a number of these dietary interventions for improving ASD symptoms has been evaluated utilizing randomized controlled designs, blinding is often challenging for such interventions, and some degree of expectation bias is possible. More studies are needed for a conclusive inference to be made with respect to the universal effectiveness of any single dietary intervention, particularly in light of the heterogeneity of both ASD etiology and presentation of symptoms. Targeted dietary supplements such as vitamin D [112,113], methylfolate [114,115], and carnitine [116,117], vitamin B12 and other micronutrient supplementation [51,118], mitochondrial support, or supplements thought to be relevant to a child’s functional genomic situation,” the case study said in the ‘Introduction’ section.

Besides what the body takes in, the autist’s activities likely play a roll as well.

“Addressing other modifiable lifestyle factors and environmental interventions, such as more time in nature, a reduction in exposure to artificial light, and improving indoor air quality, have demonstrated promise,” the case study said in the ‘Introduction’ section.

A detailed description of the dietary alterations the twins experienced was given after the researchers discussed activity alterations focused on reducing their autistic behavior.

“Alongside Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA, which is typically recommended for new ASD diagnoses), beginning at 22 months and ending at 33 months, and speech therapy starting at 24 months, the twins’ parents implemented a rigorous diet and nutrition intervention around the time of diagnosis. They eliminated sources of glutamate in the children’s diet following the Reduced Excitatory Inflammatory Diet [163]. The twins were also put on a strictly gluten-free, casein-free diet that was low in sugar and had no exposure to artificial colors, dyes, or ultra-processed foods. An emphasis was placed on consuming organic, unprocessed, freshly prepared, and home-cooked food from local sources when possible. The family also consulted with a dietician for guidance around these dietary interventions. A number of dietary supplements, including omega-3 fatty acids, a multivitamin, vitamin D, carnitine, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, and bio-individualized homeopathic remedies, were taken by both girls,” the case study said in the ‘Therapeutic Interventions’ section. “A combination of labs and genomic information were utilized to inform dietary supplementation. The family consulted a naturopathic doctor who guided them in some DNA-targeted precision medicine using the IntellxxDNA genomics tool [135]. There were some common findings, such as impaired serotonin metabolism and a recommendation that the girls be fed a diet rich in tryptophan to upregulate serotonin production, as well as consume foods rich in vitamins B12, B6, and folate. Both twins had several genetic variants, which may increase their risk of systemic inflammation. The mother was advised to feed the children foods that are high in betaine and choline, as well as to supplement with lion’s mane mushroosm and resolvins. However, each girl also had needs that were independent of each other. P had variants that may increase her need for vitamin D. L has several variants that may increase the risk of neuroinflammation, oxidative stress, and compromised detoxification. Advice was provided to support glutathione production.”
