“Six Months to Go Until The Largest Tax Hikes in History”


Six Months to Go Until The Largest Tax Hikes in History = Investors Business Daily

In just six months, the largest tax hikes in the history of America will take effect, hitting families and small businesses in three great waves on Jan. 1.

First Wave: Expiration of 2001 and 2003 Tax Relief

In 2001 and 2003, the GOP Congress enacted several tax cuts for investors, small business owners, and families.  These all expire Jan, 1, 2011:

Personal income tax rates will rise. The top income tax rate will rise from 35 to 39.6 percent — also the rate two-thirds of small business profits are taxed.  The lowest rate will rise from 10 to 15 percent.  All the rates in between will also rise.  Itemized deductions and personal exemptions will again phase out, which has the same mathematical effect as higher tax rates:

* The 10% bracket rises to an expanded 15% — THAT’S A 50% HIKE IN THE RATE.
* The 25% bracket rises to 28% — THAT’S A 12% HIKE IN THE RATE.
* The 28% bracket rises to 31%  — THAT’S A 10.7% HIKE IN THE RATE.
* The 33% bracket rises to 36%  — THAT’S A 9.1% HIKE IN THE RATE.
* The 35% bracket rises to 39.6%  — THAT’S A 13.1% HIKE IN THE RATE.

Higher taxes on marriage and family. The “marriage penalty” — narrower tax brackets for married couples — will return from the first dollar of income.  The child tax credit will be cut in half from $1000 to $500 per child.  The standard deduction will no longer be doubled for married couples relative to the single level.  The dependent care and adoption tax credits will be cut.

Return of the Death Tax. This year, there is no death tax.  For those dying on or after Jan. 1, there is a 55 percent top death tax rate on estates over $1 million.  A person leaving behind two homes and a retirement account could easily pass along a death tax bill to their loved ones.

Higher tax rates on savers and investors. The capital gains tax will rise from 15 percent this year to 20 percent in 2011. THAT’S A 33% INCREASE  The dividends tax will rise from 15 percent this year to 39.6 percent.  These rates will rise another 3.8 percent in 2013.

Second Wave: Obamacare

There are more than 20 new and higher taxes in the health law.  Several go into effect Jan. 1:

Medicine Cabinet Tax — Americans will no longer be able to use health savings account (HSA), flexible spending account (FSA), or health reimbursement (HRA) pre-tax dollars to purchase non-prescription, over-the-counter medicines — except insulin.

Special Needs Kids Tax — This provision imposes a cap on flexible spending accounts (FSAs) of $2,500. Currently, there is no federal government limit.  There is one group of FSA owners this new cap will be particularly cruel and onerous: parents of special needs children.  There are thousands of families with special needs children in the United States, and many use FSAs to pay for special needs education.  Tuition rates at one leading school teaching special needs children in Washington, D.C. (National Child Research Center) can easily exceed $14,000 per year.  Under tax rules, FSA dollars can be used to pay for this type of special needs education.

HSA Withdrawal Tax Hike — This provision increases the additional tax on non-medical early withdrawals from an HSA from 10 to 20 percent, disadvantaging them relative to IRAs and other tax-advantaged accounts, which remain at 10 percent.

Third Wave: The Alternative Minimum Tax and Employer Tax Hikes

When Americans prepare to file their tax returns in January, they’re in for a nasty surprise—the AMT won’t be held harmless, and many tax relief provisions will have expired.  The major items include:

The AMT will ensnare over 28 million families, up from 4 million last year — Congress’ failure to index the AMT will lead to an explosion of AMT taxpaying families—rising from 4 million last year to 28.5 million.  These families  have to calculate their tax burdens twice, and pay taxes at the higher level.  The AMT was created in 1969 to ensnare a handful of taxpayers.

Small business expensing slashed and 50% expensing disappears — Small businesses can normally expense, rather than slowly-deduct or “depreciate,” equipment purchases up to $250,000.  This will be cut back to $25,000.  Larger businesses can expense half of their purchases of equipment.  In January, all of it will have to be depreciated.

Taxes rise on all types of businesses — There are scores of tax hikes on business.  The biggest is the loss of the “research and experimentation tax credit,” but there are many others.  Combining high marginal tax rates with the loss of this tax relief will cost jobs.

Tax Benefits for Education and Teaching Reduced — The deduction for tuition and fees is gone.  Tax credits for education are limited.  Teachers will no longer be able to deduct classroom expenses.  Coverdell Education Savings Accounts will be cut.  Employer-provided educational assistance is curtailed.  The student loan interest deduction will be disallowed for hundreds of thousands of families.

Charitable Contributions from IRAs gone — Under current law, a retired person with an IRA can contribute up to $100,000 per year directly to a charity from their IRA.  This contribution also counts toward an annual “required minimum distribution.”  This ability is gone.

HOW’S THAT FOR CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN?

NOVEMBER COMETH.  THIS IS THE MOST CRITICAL ELECTION EVER FACED BY AMERICA.

Renee M (12 July 2010) “The end of the final 7 years – the Second Coming of Christ”

This article by Renee is another in the series concerning the Solar and Lunar eclipses that are signs of the Day Of The Lord and His coming.

The basic research for these eclipses was from pastor Mark  Biltz and the links are below to a couple of videos.

Renee M (12 July 2010)
“The end of the final 7 years – the Second Coming of Christ”


http://jesusiscoming2015.webs.com/areweinthefinal7years.htm


Over the last few days, the posts I have written have clearly shown that Jesus should return to the earth within the next decade because of the 6000 year plan of God, and that Jesus’ return should take place during the Fall Feasts in Israel. There are THREE MAJOR things that the Bible teaches us to watch for that will lead us to know when Jesus is returning to the earth.

  1. THE SUN AND MOON ARE DARKENED!!!
  2. THE YEAR OF JUBILEE!!!
  3. CONFIRMING OF THE COVENANT 2520 DAYS BEFORE THE DAY OF ATONEMENT!!!

Today we will take a look at the first of these 3 signs, tomorrow the second, and the following day, the third:

  1. THE SUN AND MOON ARE DARKENED!!! Honestly, this first sign is so obvious and easy for us, and yet very few people studying prophecy have even caught it. It’s the BIGGEST clue that Jesus gave us, it’s right in front of our eyes, and yet, most people don’t seem to see it!

Matthew 24:29-30

29“Immediately after the distress of those days ‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’ 30“At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory.

Mark 13:24-26

24“But in those days, following that distress, ” ‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; 25the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’ 26“At that time men will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory.

Isaiah 13:9-13

9 See, the day of the LORD is coming —a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger —  to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it.  10 The stars of heaven and their constellations will not show their light. The rising sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light.  11 I will punish the world for its evil, the wicked for their sins. I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and will humble the pride of the ruthless. 12 I will make man scarcer than pure gold, more rare than the gold of Ophir. 13 Therefore I will make the heavens tremble; and the earth will shake from its place at the wrath of the LORD Almighty, in the day of his burning anger.

Isaiah 24:23

23 The moon will be abashed, the sun ashamed; for the LORD Almighty will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and before its elders, gloriously.


If we want to know when Jesus will return to the earth, first we must study the FEASTS and the 6000 year plan of God. Since we have already concluded that Jesus will return to earth during the Fall Feasts, and that we are living in the time period when we should expect His return according to the 6000 year plan of God, the next sign to point us to the exact time of His return is to look for the sun and moon to be darkened on the Jewish Feast days!


There are only TWO times this will happen within the next 25 years. There is a solar and lunar eclipse taking place during the Fall Feasts of Israel in 2015 and 2034!!! There is a solar eclipse on the Feast of Trumpets in 2015 and a lunar eclipse on the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles in 2015. In 2034, there is a solar eclipse the day before the Feast of Trumpets and a lunar eclipse on the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles. We can rule out the other years as being the end of the final 7 years, because there is NO solar or lunar eclipse taking place near the feast days during any other years! Jesus was very clear, that the one sign to watch for that would point us to His return to the earth is a solar and lunar eclipse, when the sun and the moon are darkened! WOW!


This narrows down our options for when Jesus will return to the earth. Our two options are 2015 and 2034. It is my opinion that 2034 will be past the 6000 years from Creation and that 2015 fits much better into the 6000 year time-frame.


It’s so clear from Scripture that this is the sign of His return and so few people seem to recognize this. Many people say that this could mean any number of things, that the smoke rising from a nuclear war will cause the sun and moon to be darkened, or something else. But I would contend that when the Bible talks about the sun and moon being darkened, it is talking about a solar and lunar eclipse and that when it mentions that the moon will turn to blood, it is not stating that the moon actually turns to blood, rather it is referring to a total lunar eclipse, wherein the moon turns red and looks like blood.


Joel 2:31

The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.

Revelation 6:12-13

12I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind.


Whenever the Bible refers to the moon turning to blood (see Joel 2:31 and Revelation 6:12), it is talking about a total lunar eclipse, when the moon appears to turn red like blood during the eclipse. The moon is not actually going to turn into blood before Jesus comes. Joel and John are trying to give us a sign to watch for before the coming of Christ – a total lunar eclipse in which the moon turns blood red. It is extremely interesting to note that in 2104 and 2015, 4 total lunar eclipses (blood moons) appear in a row. Normally you will have a total lunar eclipse and then the next lunar eclipse will be partial. Only a total eclipse creates a “blood moon”. To have 4 total lunar eclipses in a row is extremely rare, but what is even more rare is that they all fall on Jewish Feasts (2 on the feast of Passover and 2 on the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles). It’s quite significant that the last 2 times this has happened were right around the times when significant events happened in Israel – 1949/50 (Israel was becoming a nation again) and 1967/68 (Israel recaptured Jerusalem) and these are the only 2 other times this has happened in the last 500 years, where all 4 total lunar eclipses were right on Jewish Feast days (all 12 total lunar eclipses take place on Passover or Feast of Tabernacles). “The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.”  Joel 2:31. This is a HUGE sign from God pointing us once again to the fall of 2015 as the time of His return.


For the Lamb,

July 12, 2010 VERY QUIETLY OBAMA’S CITIZENSHIP CASE REACHES THE SUPREME COURT

VERY  QUIETLY OBAMA’S CITIZENSHIP CASE REACHES THE SUPREME COURT
Wednesday,  June 9,  2010

AP – WASHINGTON D.C. –
In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama’s qualifications for the
presidency, the group  “Americans for Freedom of Information” has  Released
copies of President Obama’s college  transcripts from  Occidental College.
Released today, the transcript  school indicates  that Obama, under the name
Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a  foreign  student from Indonesia
as an undergraduate. The transcript  was  released by Occidental College in
compliance with a court order  in a suit brought by the group in the Superior
Court of California. The  transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for
financial aid and was  awarded a fellowship for  foreign students from the
Fulbright  Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship,
a  student  must claim foreign  citizenship.
This document  would seem to provide the smoking gun that many of Obama’s
detractors have  been seeking. Along with the evidence that he was first born
in Kenya and  there is no record of him ever applying for US citizenship,
this is  looking pretty grim. The news has created a firestorm at the White
House  as the release casts increasing doubt about Obama’s legitimacy and
qualification to serve as President article titled, “Obama Eligibility
Questioned,” leading some to speculate that the story may overshadow  economic
issues on Obama’s first official visit to the U.K. In a related  matter, under
growing pressure from several groups,  Justice Antonin  Scalia announced
that the Supreme Court agreed on Tuesday to hear  arguments concerning Obama’s
legal eligibility to serve as President in a  case brought by Leo Donofrio
of New Jersey. This lawsuit claims Obama’s  dual citizenship disqualified him
from serving as president. Donofrio’s  case is just one of 18 suits brought
by citizens demanding proof of  Obama’s citizenship or qualification to
serve as  president.

Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation has released the
results of their investigation of Obama’s campaign spending. This  study
estimates that Obama has spent upwards of $950,000 in campaign  funds in the past
year with eleven law firms in 12 states for legal  resources to  block
disclosure of any of his personal records.  Mr. Kreep indicated that the
investigation is still ongoing but that the  final report will be provided to the
U..S. Attorney general, Eric  Holder.  Mr. Holder has refused to comment on
the  matter…

LET OTHER FOLKS KNOW THIS NEWS, THE MEDIA WON’T  !

Subject: RE: Issue of  Passport?

While I’ve little interest in getting in the middle of the Obama birth
issue, Paul Hollrah over at FSM did so  yesterday and believes the  issue can
be resolved by Obama answering one simple question: What  passport did he use
when he was shuttling between New York , Jakarta , and  Karachi  ?

So how did a young man who arrived in New York in early June 1981, without
the price of a hotel room in his pocket, suddenly come up with the price
of a round-the-world trip just a month  later?

And once he was on a plane, shuttling between New York , Jakarta , and
Karachi , what passport was he offering when he passed through Customs and
Immigration?

The American people not only deserve to have answers to these questions,
they must have answers. It makes the debate over Obama’s citizenship a
rather short and simple  one.

Q: Did he travel to Pakistan in 1981, at age  20?
A : Yes, by  his own  admission.

Q: What passport did he travel  under?
A: There  are only three  possibilities.
1) He traveled with a U.S…  Passport,
2) He traveled with a  British passport,  or
3) He traveled with an Indonesia  passport.

Q: Is it possible that Obama traveled with a U.S. Passport in  1981?
A: No. It  is not possible. Pakistan was on the  U.S… State Department’s
“no  travel” list  in  1981.

Conclusion: When Obama went to Pakistan in 1981 he was traveling either
with a British passport or an  Indonesian  passport.

If he were traveling with a British passport that would provide proof that
he was born in Kenya on August 4, 1961, not in Hawaii as he claims. And if
he were traveling with an Indonesian passport that would tend to prove
that he  relinquished whatever previous citizenship he held, British  or
American, prior to being adopted by his Indonesian step-father in  1967.

Whatever the truth of the matter, the American people need to know how he
managed to become a “natural born” American citizen between 1981 and  2008..

Given the destructive nature of his plans for America, as illustrated by
his speech before Congress and the disastrous spending plan he has  presented
to Congress, the sooner we learn the truth of all this, the  better.

If you Don’t care that Your President is not a  natural born Citizen  and
in Violation of the Constitution, then Delete  this, and then  lower your
American Flag to half-staff, because the U.S. Constitution is  already on
life-support, and won’t survive much  longer.

If you do care then Forward this to as many patriotic Americans as you
can, because our country is being looted and  ransacked!
