IRS warns states to not circumvent state, local tax cap

(New York Times) The Internal Revenue Service is preparing to crack down on states that try to circumvent a new limit on the state and local tax deduction, saying on Wednesday that it will not allow local governments to find creative ways to help individuals fully deduct those taxes.

The I.R.S. warning comes in response to states, like New York, that have looked for ways to blunt the impact of a new $10,000 cap on the state and local tax deduction, known as SALT. The cap, which was included in last year’s $1.5 trillion Republican tax overhaul, hit predominantly Democratic, high-tax states hardest since it limits the amount of state and local sales, income and property taxes that residents can deduct from their federal taxes.

That has prompted a scramble among local lawmakers to find ways to allow constituents who owe more than $10,000 to continue to fully deduct those taxes and avoid a tax increase.

School district to buy ex-board member's land at 7 times value

(The State) Lexington 1 school district officials are defending a decision to buy nearly 55 acres of land from a former school board member at a price that’s seven times the property’s assessed value.

The board voted May 15 to purchase the land off Fairview Road for $982,980. The land is valued at $144,440, according to county records. The land was purchased from former board member Jean Nichols Haggard, who also retired as principal of Pelion High School in 2012, and her brother, Hugh A. Nichols.

When the land was purchased by the Nichols family in 2001, they paid $162,000 for a little more than 81 acres. Seventeen years later, Lexington 1 paid nearly seven times that price for about 26 fewer acres.

Man accused of telling children where babies come from

(WBAL) Clearwater Beach Police say a Florida man climbed on top of playground equipment and yelled a vulgar explanation of where babies come from as children played.

An officer said he watched 30-year-old Otis Dawayne Ryan climb on top of a piece of equipment where children were playing Sunday and start shouting that babies come out of women. The officer said Ryan used inappropriate language. Parents rushed to remove their children from the busy playground.

Earlier in the day, Ryan approached tourists and made inappropriate comments to women in an effort to get their male partners to confront him, according to police. An officer was watching him at the time.

FBI Seizes Control of Russian Botnet

Jewish-Christian Bible Bloc Party approved in Israel

(Jerusalem Post) There will be a joint Jewish-Christian list that will run in the next general election, after the party registrar’s office recently approved the candidacy of a new party called The Bible Bloc Party (Gush Hatanachi in Hebrew.) The party will seek the support of non-Jewish Russian immigrants from the former Soviet Union and their spouses and Christian Arabs. Party founder Dennis Avi Lipkin, who is a veteran speaker to Evangelical Christians in the US, said he believes he will also receive support from millions of Western immigrants who he expects will move to Israel in the near future.

“Our goal is to promote the Jewish-Christian alliance and togetherness,” Lipkin said.

Poll: Gun Control Support Changing in the Aftermath of Parkland — Here’s How

 

According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, support for gun control is already waning three months after the Parkland, Florida school shooting.

Unsurprisingly, anti-gun excitement spikes in the immediate aftermath of a mass shooting, but eventually the hysteria subsides. The Florida incident is no outlier.

In late March, the study showed that 75 percent of Americans were in favor of strong or moderate limitations on firearm ownership. However, as indicated by the survey released today, that number has dropped to 69 percent.

It should be noted that the recent poll was taken before the May 18th school shooting near Houston.

It is doubtless that when — not if — another mass shooting occurs, those against the right to bear arms will lament the fact that “nothing has been done” since the last one. But the reality is Americans do not have the sustained resolve required to destroy their own liberties.

At least, not yet.

However, 69 percent could still serve to be an ominous number, depending on the definition of “moderate regulations.”

Even so, the Left doesn’t understand the citizenry. It continuously shoots itself in the foot — no pun intended — by shouting from the mountaintops the culpability of the NRA in mass murder. Those virtue-signaled claims of the absurd do not serve the attainment of their goals. They are stuck in slogans and bumper stickers and marches and any other manner of display and sound, rather than attempting to deal reasonably with the societal ills in hand.

The adults running the left side of the political aisle seem no more atune to reality than certain teenaged activists celebrating “Never again” after Parkland. Guess what? “Never again” happened already again — just over 90 days later.

So long as the Left are more enamored by the sound of their own voices and the brilliance of their flags, they will continue to fail to enact any real change. With regard to the 2nd Amendment, that may be a very good thing.

"As we consider the difficult challenge of preventing these sorts of things, we should bear in mind that the 'good guy with a gun' effect isn't a pro-gun fiction." Thank you, @guypbenson, for this factual and well-written piece. https://t.co/zl0Uok1ALf

— NRA (@NRA) May 23, 2018

What do you think? Are we better off if all gun control measures fail? Either way, we must find the root cause of mass shootings and address it aptly. What do you think it is?

Woman claims cop raped her, body cam shows different

(Dailywire) A woman who claimed that a Texas Highway Patrol Trooper raped her after she was placed under arrest for driving while intoxicated, might want to rethink her story now that the Texas Department of Public Safety has released the body cam footage from the arrest.

The Texas Highway Patrol Trooper pulled over 37-year-old Sherita Dixon-Cole after she allegedly committed a traffic violation. They arrested her and took her to the Ellis County Jail, where she was formally charged with DWI. In a press statement, the Texas Department of Public Safety wrote:

Justice Kennedy retiring at term's end 'very real possibility'

(Washington Times) Sen. Mike Lee says the retirement of U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy is a “very real possibility” that could take place before July.

The Utah Republican added that Justice Kennedy, a Reagan appointee who has split with conservative jurists on issues like gay marriage and abortion, would prefer to be replaced by a Republican president.

“A lot of chatter suggesting that Justice Kennedy might be preparing for retirement as soon as this year,” Mr. Lee said Tuesday on Fox News Radio’s “Benson & Harf.” “Sometime between now and the end of June or first day or two of July would be when we would expect an announcement from Justice Kennedy if he were going to do it. What I am hearing is that he is at least considering it and it’s a very real possibility.”

CBO: ObamaCare premiums to rise 15% in 2019

(The Hill) ObamaCare premiums are expected to rise an average of 15 percent next year, an increase largely due to the GOP’s repeal of the law’s individual mandate, according to a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) analysis released Wednesday.

The CBO estimates that gutting the requirement that Americans have health insurance or face a tax penalty will contribute to about a 10 percent rise in premiums for 2019, with insurers expected to see healthier people dropping out of the marketplaces, leaving sicker enrollees on the plans.

The nonpartisan agency attributed the rest of the expected increase to rising health-care costs and the lack of insurers receiving a key ObamaCare payment compensating them for subsidizing out-of-pocket costs for certain enrollees.
