Andy Meek MSN reporter: The Biden administration wants to spend $80 billion to expand the IRS’ compliance abilities in order to generate $700 billion over the next decade to help pay for the American Families Plan, and the benefits it includes like new quasi-stimulus checks. Where does that $700 billion come from? From the increased tax enforcement that the $80 billion IRS expansion made possible.

Steve Bannon: The path to save the nation is through the school boards.

Derek Archer contributor to The American Mind: We see that the military, which is subject to top-down imposition of new social norms, is now the proving grounds of cultural overhaul. Troops must comply with these advances as a matter of discipline. And once these norms are instituted, the argument is then made that the rest of society just needs to catch up to the example set forth by our most-respected organization, albeit involuntarily. Our ruling class has turned our military into a coercive gateway to enact broader cultural change as it attempts to force it into our lives; and now they’ve corrupted it with their racial agenda, as well.

Peachy Keenan contributor to The American Mind: Ask yourself: why would the Democrats want to purge the military of, let’s face it, the sons and daughters of Deplorables in favor of a weaker, more obedient army of enthusiastic informers who can’t wait to exceed their quota of captured “extremists”?

Kelly: The January 6 Commission Is All About Revenge
The House of Representatives on Wednesday passed legislation to create a 9/11-style commission to investigate the events of January 6, 2021. Thirty-five Republicans, including the ten who voted to impeach Donald Trump for “inciting” the violence that day, joined Democrats to advance the bill to the U.S. Senate where its fate is unclear. The vote, ironically, came almost four years to the day that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, at the behest of many Republicans, appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate the concocted crime of Trump-Russia election collusion. The January 6 commission, if passed, would be yet another extension of Crossfire Hurricane, the illicit probe launched by the FBI in 2016 in an effort to destroy one of Barack Obama’s most despised political enemies. One special counsel investigation, numerous congressional and senate inquisitions, and two impeachment trials later, the Left’s insatiable lust to take down Donald Trump remains unsatisfied. But now, rather than just targeting the president and his family, millions of Americans must be punished for defying the ruling regime—which only partially includes the federal agencies, political leaders of both parties, the news media, and Big Tech. This dangerous crusade is accelerating at an alarming pace at the highest levels of government; apparently, it is of no concern to nearly three dozen Republican members of Congress who are helping Joe Biden and the Democrats exact their revenge on Trump supporters.

Hoft: “Queen of the House of Hypocrites – Believes in Tyrannical Socialist or Communist Government” – MTG Does Not Hold Back – ROASTS Pelosi in Latest Interview (VIDEO)
MTG: Our vaccine history is none of her business. In fact it’s a violation of our HIPAA rights for her to demand to know. But this is classic form and fashion for Nancy Pelosi because she doesn’t believe in a government for the people. She believes in a tyrannical Socialist or maybe even Communist government… This isn’t a woman who believes in other’s safety. This is a woman who is hyperfocused on her own power and control.

(From 4/20/2021) Keenan: Welcome to the Armed Farces
Insurrectile Dysfunction Domestic extremists are literally everywhere. Just look in the mirror! Like the body snatchers, they may look normal. They may be polite, pay their taxes, and wear pants in public. But that’s because these millions of bad people are hiding in plain sight. Just like Osama was, until they “discovered” him, living next to a military base. In 2021, we learned that our terrorists live ON military bases. After the January 6th fraternity panty raid at the Capitol, the biggest micro-aggression in history, the Department of Defense was so triggered that it held a nationwide “extremism stand down” this spring. Yeah, you heard me—a panty raid. We’re just lucky no one encountered Nancy Pelosi’s actual panties, people could have been seriously traumatized. It was all fun and games until a (black) Capitol Keystone Cop killed an unarmed (white) protester. (When you’re on Pelosi’s payroll, they let you do it.)
[…] During the stand down, my source and the rest of his division were shown a PowerPoint presentation that included a list of extremist “Risk Factors.” Here is the list, exactly as it appeared in the presentation: . . . […] Check to see if you fit the 2021 profile for domestic extremism by answering these simple questions: . . . If you answered YES to these questions before 2020, you were a normal healthy American. If you answered YES to these questions today, well, I hope you like prison food!

Milliere: Is the Biden Administration an Enemy of Israel and the Free World?
Biden made no distinction between a democratic ally of the United States and a terrorist organization he did not even name. He spoke as if he did not know that the calm was broken by a terrorist organization and by no one else, and that what prevents Palestinians from having freedom, prosperity and democracy is precisely that they are ruled by terrorists and people who supports terrorism. […] The Biden administration has radically broken with the policies of the administration that preceded it: President Trump decided to walk away from Iran’s nuclear deal precisely because the mullahs’ regime was funding Islamic terrorism and constantly threatening Israel the United States, as well as Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Syria, Libya and Iraq. Iranian leaders appear see the Biden administration in a position of weakness and ready to turn a blind eye to even Iran’s most hideous atrocities, either inside the country or outside it.
That the Biden administration chose Robert Malley, the lead negotiator for the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, to conduct negotiations again, makes the Iranian leadership even more intrigued by the Biden administration’s weakness. Negotiations are currently underway in Vienna, Austria. The Iranians have refused to meet with the American delegation. The Iranian delegation has told Mikhail Ulyanov, Permanent Representative of Russia to International Organizations, that they were “still not ready” to meet Americans.

Moore: Under Biden Plan, The IRS Would Know A Lot More About Your Bank Accounts
Simply put, the American Families Plan calls for banks and other financial institutions to report more than just a taxpayer’s interest earned, capital gains and losses. Banks and other financial institutions would also be required to report “aggregate account outflows and inflows.” In other words, the IRS will know about all of your bank accounts, whether you earned income on that account or not, how much is in the account in a given year, and how much was transferred in and out of the account. It is unclear how this would work, but what is clear is that this new reporting obligation will create a massive compliance effort on the part of financial institutions, and eliminate a massive blindspot that the IRS is currently enduring. As things stand today, most taxpayers don’t have an obligation to report how much money they have in their bank accounts, how much they deposited, or how much they withdrew

Catenacci: Consumer Prices Outpace Americans’ Wage Growth As Inflation Surges
Massive government spending has decreased the value of the American dollar and triggered increased consumer prices, which economic experts said will only get worse. Americans will continue to see higher prices across the board, from food and gasoline to home appliances and cars, as the federal government continues to propose more stimulus into the economy without an adequate plan to pay for it, according to several experts. Even if the government doesn’t pass legislation increasing taxes, higher prices ultimately amount to an “inflation tax,” some of the experts said. […] Since January, prices have outpaced wage growth meaning Americans’ average salary isn’t keeping up with the cost of goods and services.

Ascik: Controlling Student Speech… On and Off Campus
The grandiose and centralized cradle-through-college education plans of Joe Biden and the Democratic party have now been plainly stated. In his April 27th address to Congress, Mr. Biden said that his purpose was to “guarantee four additional years” of free public education, two before first grade and two after 12th grade. In his American Families Plan released the next day, he said that his purpose was to “make transformational investments” in education, including developing “appropriate curriculum.” […] This interest in controlling Americans from cradle to college helps us understand why the Biden administration intervened in the April “student free speech” case in the Supreme Court and why the most liberal administration since the Great Society repudiated one of the political accomplishments and high symbols of 1960’s liberalism. […] The Biden administration’s purpose effectively to overturn Tinker and to have public schools control all student speech, on or off campus, was expressly stated by the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) lawyer when he said, “there is no meaningful causal link between the place from which an online communication is sent and the likelihood that it will disrupt school operations.” The school district’s lawyer agreed and argued that students “shouldn’t be able to place their speech off limits just by stepping off campus.” The student’s lawyer placed the arguments in the larger, that is to say, constitutional context: . . . […] Will elementary, secondary, and university students, off campus as well as on campus, be forbidden to criticize, for example, critical race theory and the new American history curricula? And will that prohibition be extended to parents?
