Apple Reportedly Avoids $59 Billion in Taxes

Big tech companies are safeguarding billions of dollars in offshore tax havens, according to a new study. Apple alone, the biggest offender, is stashing $181B in revenue with an estimated tax burden of $59.2B. In other words, Apple’s taxes could pay for nearly the entirety of President Obama’s plan for free two-year community college (an estimated $60B).

Paul Ryan: House GOP Leadership’s Third Strike

If GOP leadership puts forward Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as its “Plan C” for Speaker of the House, which appears to be Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) and Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) plan, it’s sure to be a third strike, according to several influential conservatives.

Conservative Media, GOP Establishment Push Paul Ryan For Speaker

The problem is that the Republican leadership betrayed their own base one time too many. What happened in 2014 was quite simple: the GOP asked voters to give them both House and Senate to put the brakes on Obama’s disastrous agenda, and the voters took them up on it. The capitulations and walkbacks began with days of the last races being called. The old song-and-dance about how “we’ll fight next time” and “we need just a little more power to get anything done” was performed one last time, to disastrous effect.

The Media Frenzy on a News Story That Hasn’t Even Happened

The media is in a constant state of frenzied panic to advance and promote the lie of Islamophobia and the Muslim-victimhood myth. Despite a complete lack of any real evidence, the media frames opposition of jihad terror, FGM, creed apartheid, gender apartheid as “islamophobia,” or this pearl, “anti-Muslim extremists,” as if one should support those things. They take their marching orders from terror-tied groups like CAIR and ISNA.

Rush Limbaugh: GOP Implosion Feared by ‘Establishment of Both Parties’

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said Friday the reason why the mainstream media is not visibly celebrating Kevin McCarthy’s decision to drop his bid for House Speaker and the ensuing Republican Party implosion is because the perception is that conservatives have won a victory over Washington insider establishment individuals like McCarthy.

But now, Congress’s geekiest member, Representative Darrell Issa, is “considering” putting his hat in the ring and has turned heads in the well-heeled tech halls of D.C.
