Robert Frank reports for CNBC, Oct. 19, 2020, that according to a study by the non-partisan Tax Foundation, high earners — those earning more than $400,000 a year — in California, New Jersey and New York, could face combined federal and state tax rates of 58% to more than 62% under Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s tax plan:
62.6% for Californians
58.2% for New Jersey
60+% for New York state
62+% for New York City.
If you include the contributions to the tax hikes by employers, which are often passed along to employees, the combined rates would rise even further — to over 65% in California, 62.9% in New Jersey and 64.7% in New York City.They could also jump higher if California and New York raise taxes on high earners, which some legislators have proposed to reduce multibillion-dollar budget gaps.
Tax Foundation’s Jared Walzcak said: “These rates would be the highest in about 3½ decades, and imposed on a broader tax base than was in place previously.”
Biden’s combined tax rates of more than 60% for top earners would be the highest in more than 30 years, and well above the rates under the Obama administration.
Currently, the top U.S. statutory tax rate is 37%; the effective rate (what taxpayers actually pay with help from their accountants) for top earners is 26.8%, according to the Tax Foundation.
Under Biden’s plan, the effective tax rate for the top 1% would increase from 26.8% to 39.8%, according to the Tax Policy Center. That means top earners in California and New York City would pay effective state and federal tax rates of around 53% — compared with the roughly 40% they pay in effective rates today.
A Hollyweird actor by the name of Dave Bautista (former pro-wrestler and now an actor) has been tweeting about guns and Biden. He claims that Biden is pro-Second Amendment and the former VP’s gun control plan will save lives.
Dave also has an opinion about those of us who may own an AR-15:
If you’re weapon next to your bed is an AR you’re an idiot. If someone invades your home and your running to get your AR then you’re a fucking idiot. If youre in a home setting with multiple attackers and you’re trying to defend yourself with an AR then you’re a fucking idiot. 🤷🏻♂️ https://t.co/ndFmiOV5jG
If you’ve had firearm training, you know how all kinds of wrong this is.
First of all, one of the basic firearm safety rules: Never let the muzzle cover anything that you are not willing to destroy. There’s no safety rule that says, “point the muzzle only if your goal is to maim.”
Secondly, try hitting a leg (faster moving and smaller target than center mass) when you are faced with an escalated and possible life/death situation.
Third thing: Shooting someone in the leg is NOT de-escalation.
Fourth, after you’ve tried this “de-escalation” technique and have thoroughly pissed someone off after “maiming” them, this may not stop them from approaching you with a knife nor from drawing a concealed firearm. In which case, they may still be coming after you.
But this is liberal logic for ‘ya. It’s not designed to make sense.

It confirms what we knew all along: Joe Biden lied when he said claimed that he’s “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”
Video of the story here (if YouTube allows it to remain):
Twitter and Facebook IMMEDIATELY went into protect-Biden-at-all-costs mode and censored the story.
Twitter claimed they block links with information derived from “hacked” materials.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey must have spoke with his legal team as he tweeted out the following last night: “Our communication around our actions on the @nypost article was not great. And blocking URL sharing via tweet or DM with zero context as to why we’re blocking: unacceptable.”
Twitter also started locking down conservative accounts including those of a Newsbusters editor, New York Post, and the personal account of press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.
Facebook went into Biden protection mode by not allowing the NY Post story to be shared on their platform until it could be “fact-checked.”
Senator Hawley’s response:
.@Twitter@jack this is not nearly good enough. In fact, it’s a joke. It’s downright insulting. I will ask you – and @Facebook – to give an explanation UNDER OATH to the Senate subcommittee I chair. These are potential violations of election law, and that’s a crime https://t.co/Rylva8UJv9
Kamala Harris neglected to include all her financial information in her Financial Disclosure Reports(FDR) required by the Senate. Since her first day in the Senate until 7/8/2019 she neglected to disclose one of her pension plans. That plan is named “Legislatures Retirement System”.
It wasn’t until 7/8/2019 when she finally decided to disclose the pension plan.
While filing her FDR that was required of her at the time, she filed amended FDR’s for the years of 2015. 2016, 2017, 2018. The amended version filed far past the allowed deadlines. Years past.
The new amended versions now include the pension plan.
If a Senator makes a error or mistakenly leaves something out of their FDR’s, they are allowed to amend their disclosure report. They are expected to have the amendment filed that same year with a reasonable excuse.
This isn’t the case with Harris. Each year she made amendments to her FDR’s she neglected to include the Pension plan. She filed at least 8 times in 4 years and didn’t include the pension plan. She really doesn’t have an excuse for her negligence.
The following images are screenshots of pages from three current amended FDR’s.
Because of the size of the files I’ve only included pages from the reports that show the pension plan. For the same reason I’ve also left out the original FDR’s. Not to worry because I”ve included links to the original FDR’s, amended FDR’s along with sources to everything mentioned here today. These can be found at the bottom of the page.
As you can see all of these were filed at the same time and day in 2019.
It’s important to understand that a Senator can be charged with a crime if they fail to report any required information.
Having to amend the FDR every year makes a person question her motives. Withholding information then adding it on 4 years later is criminal.
The following is a basic overview of some of the Financial Disclosure rules.
“Public disclosure of a public official’s personal financial interest is often considered the key component to an effective code of conduct. The drafters of the original Senate Code of Official Conduct in the 95th Congress considered “full and complete disclosure” to be the heart of the Code of Conduct. Pursuant to statute and Senate rules, Members, officers, certain employees of the Senate (including fellows and government employees detailed to the Senate), and Senate candidates are required to file comprehensive public financial disclosure reports. The Senate has required public reporting by statute and by Senate Rule since 1978.”
‘Members, officers, and certain employees of the United States Senate, related offices, and candidates for the Senate are required by Title I of the Ethics in Government Act of 1978, as amended (the “Act,” 5 U.S.C. app., Section 101 et seq., also adopted as Senate Rule 34) and Senate Rule 41.1 to file Financial Disclosure Reports with the Secretary of the Senate, Office of Public“
“The Act gives the Senate Select Committee on Ethics the authority to administer the law for the Senate, promulgate the Senate Financial Disclosure Report Forms and Instructions, and issue advisory opinions regarding the Act for the Senate and related offices and Senate candidates.”
I should point out that it doesn’t appear that she disclosed the pension plan when she filed her taxes. To be fair, it might not be required. I’m not an expert on taxes. I’ll provide a link to the tax forms she has released to the public. I should mention that the documents appear to be incomplete and there is no way of knowing if these are the actual forms she gave to the IRS.
*Tax forms revealed, Kamala Harris donated her clothes to Goodwill and used the receipt for a $15,000 write off on her taxes
It looks like Harris only updated her disclosures when she decided to run for president. This sort of criminal behavior is to be expected from Harris. If you were to look at her campaign at the Federal Election Commission(FEC) you would find that her “Kamala Harris for the People” committee and her “Kamala Harris for Senate” committee are connected to multiple Campaign Finance violations. The most frequent violation is for accepting donations from ineligible sources. Joe Biden has the same problems but by far more. I’ll discuss that in the near future. I should mention that many of the ineligible sources are the same in both the Biden and Harris committees.
Here is examples. Names have been redacted because of FEC laws.
If you look at the entry that is dated 11/30/19 the unredacted page would show that this is the same person. That many donations in one day should raise some flags. Sometimes there will be donations almost daily through out the year, from the same sources. That should also raise some flags.
Clicking on the names of the committees above will take you to the FEC pages I just mentioned. Just open the RFAI files.
*Closer examination of people/businesses on the receiving end of some of her committee disbursements will reveal that she paid at least one business that is using an address that comes up vacant.
It doesn’t matter how you look at it, Kamala Harris is a liar and a criminal.
