Apple Looking To Bring $252 Billion In Foreign Cash Back To USA After Landmark Tax Bill

Since the Senate approved Trump’s tax bill 51-48 in a midnight showdown, we have already seen major economic wins in this country:

TRUMP EFFECT: AT&T Announces it Will Pay 200,000 US Employees ‘Special $1,000 Bonus’ Due to GOP Tax Reform Bill

TRUMP EFFECT: Boeing Announces $300 Million Investment Initiative Thanks To GOP Tax Reform

TRUMP EFFECT: Fifth Third Bancorp Raises Minimum Hourly Wage, Issues Bonuses To Employees Due To GOP Tax Reform

TRUMPMAS: Comcast Announces $50 BILLION INVESTMENT Due To Historic GOP Tax Reform

Well, here’s another one.
For all the scowling that Apple’s Tim Cook did during those Tech council meetings, he might not be able to feign outrage over the Republican president any longer. It has now become affordable for Apple to fulfill a longtime goal and repatriate $252B in cash that currently sits overseas. Via 9to5Mac:

Apple would be able to take advantage of a one-time tax break, paying just 15.5% tax on the cash, rather than the 35% it would have had to pay previously…. more


Obama Doing His Best To Collapse Our Economy And Ruin Our Future By Adding TRILLIONS In Debt – This Year Alone

Trillion-Dollar-Debt-Cash-Money( The man who once called President George W. Bush’s doubling of the national debt “unpatriotic” is going to leave behind the most amount of debt our country has ever had – a debt that, honestly, is a nation-killer.

And what’s more, Obama (with Congress’ help) is adding a mind-blowing $2.4 trillion more this year alone. Think about that and let it soak in: $2.4 trillion this year alone. As noted by Zero Hedge, “this is pretty nuts.”

Since the fiscal year began just 45 days ago (Oct. 1). our debt has soared $294 billion…. [read more]

Obama’s ‘Zero’ Legacy

«Trump did more than any democrat to deflate the neocon/neoliberal agenda that liberals themselves screamed was fascist when Bush was president».

That was a brilliant and profoundly true reader-comment recently posted about Hillary Clinton supporters who are demonstrating against Trump’s winning the Presidency.

Clinton-Obama Democrats who remain loyal to the Democratic Party in the wake of Trump’s victory are world-champion hypocrites, even if they’re too oblivious to know it. The Clinton-Obama political tradition of pro-megacorporate government, actually repudiates, instead of embodies, that of the Democratic Party’s earlier quintessential exemplar: the 1932-1980 FDR-dominated (Franklin Delano Roosevelt) era, the most progressive period in all of U.S. history.

Though I voted both times for Barack Obama, he turned out to be one of the worst U.S. Presidents, if not the worst of them all — even if he was (as I thought each time) the best of the bad (in each election).

His only real legacy as President turns out to have been disasters, including things far worse than his failed Obamacare, which increased the healthcare inflation-rate in our country, where healthcare already costs twice as much — and twice as high a percentage of GDP — as the international OECD average, but delivers inferior healthcare results. America is becoming internationally even less competitive in our healthcare system than before — which was already at the international bottom. It’s sucking the lifesblood out of the U.S. economy…… [more to read]

lhwm notes: Isaiah 5:20 How horrible it will be for those who call evil good and good evil, who turn darkness into light and light into darkness, who turn what is bitter into something sweet and what is sweet into something bitter.

Matthew 6:13 Don’t allow us to be tempted. Instead, rescue us from the evil one.

Did God answer many prayers? More and more of the Truth is being revealed each day and we pray that it continues! We continue to pray for our nation Lord until you come and get us. Praise and Be Glory to God Almighty who was and is to come. Amen

Jackson Hole’s Gangsters and Banksters: What Are They Planning?

The New American: “As we have noted in our past reports on the Jackson Hole events of the Fed, (see, for instance, Jackson Hole Conclave: Central Bankers Plan Global Theft, Massive Pain) these yearly jamborees bring together the capi de tutti capi (the “bosses of all the bosses”) of the Money Mafia to decide how much wealth they will milk from the world’s middle classes and the methods of extraction they plan to use.

A host of economic signals and clues indicate these banksters are getting ready to pull another manufactured financial and monetary “crisis” that will dwarf the bailout calamity of 2008-2009.”…. [read article]

Opinion: “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies,” Thomas Jefferson

When it’s all over, if there is anyone left to write a book, the Federal Reserve should be listed as the #1 culprit of financial chaos, followed by corrupt politicians that appoint them.

The Federal government sees the Federal Reserve as a money manufacturer. The government is happy as long as the Fed prints enough money each year to cover the Federal deficit.

The deficit for 2016 is projected to be $600 billion, which is the amount the government spends over what it takes in from income taxes. That’s why the national debt hit $19.5 trillion yesterday.

The Fed also prints money (stimulus) in times of recession, controls short term interest rates, and provides liquidity to its member banks.

So what’s the problem?

When the Fed prints money and loans it to the government, it must be paid back at some future date. There is no limit to how much the Fed can print and if/when the day comes that the government can’t pay it back, it is not unlike a drug dealer with his junkie client.

The Fed can force the government to raise taxes, even up to 90% or more.

Like the drug dealer has the power to keep his client hooked, the Fed creates money so that the government can spend it on all kinds of ridiculous programs to keep its constituency voting for it.

Government can then start wars, throw $20 trillion at the war on poverty, and run up a future debt of 125 trillion on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and keep on spending.

Everybody is happy.

I do not know what or when the tipping point will be, but the Bible tells us that there is one. The Rider on the Black Horse (Rev 6: 5-6) says it will take a day’s wages to buy a day’s food, but the rich and the Fed governors (represented by oil and wine) will not feel the pain until after the mid-point of the 7 year tribulation, as described by James 5:1-6:

Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten.  Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days.  Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury; you have fattened your hearts as in a day of slaughter.  You have condemned, you have murdered the just; he does not resist you.”

It’s Time for Africa

Amir’s commentary on Israel’s developing relations with Africa in light of Bible prophecy

Over the past few days we were exposed to the remarkable and historical visit of Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to four African states: Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda and Ethiopia.

The bottom line is that it’s time for Africa!

Israel is willing to openly and publicly cooperate and increase economic, political and military ties with countries in Africa.

For decades, Israel remained under the radar and helped African countries by training and educating their farmers and scientists through programs like MASHAV, Israel’s overseas development cooperation program that was developed to provide assistance, including humanitarian aid, education, health services, agricultural services and much more under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. There are several MASHAV projects in Africa focused on issues such as community building, water safety and sanitation and empowerment of women. MASHAV has been working in Africa since former Prime Minister Golda Meir’s visit to the region in 1958…… [read more]

Russia, Iran and Azerbaijan move forward with North-South transport corridor

Putin, Rouhani and Aliyev meet in Baku, sign agreements in security and combatting terrorism; Construction of railway link between Iran and Azerbaijan to begin in “nearest months”

Putin met with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Azerbaijan President Ilham Aliyev in Baku on Monday, their meeting centered on talks and agreements in economic cooperation and most importantly the North-South transport corridor- a railway link between Iran and Azerbaijan.

Putin stated ahead of their meeting “we are starting off with a clean slate in our relations with this trilateral meeting,” with President Aliyey stating “Azerbaijan is the only country in the world that has borders both with Iran and Russia. There are railway links between Russia and Azerbaijan. This year we’ve taken a decision that Azerbaijan will construct a railroad to Iran’s border. Hopefully, we’ll do it within the nearest months.”

The three leaders additionally signed agreements in security and combating terrorism.

A declaration released from their meeting states “The sides intend to make efforts on integration of regional transport and communication opportunities for creation of safe transport infrastructure. They are determined to take effective steps for development of transport-communication infrastructure.” [Full Source by Behold Israel]

‘At least 35,000’ Venezuelans cross border to Colombia to buy food and medicine

Tens of thousands of Venezuelans poured into neighbouring Colombia to buy food and medicine on Saturday after authorities briefly opened the border that has been closed for almost a year.

A similar measure last week led to dramatic scenes of the elderly and mothers storming Colombian supermarkets and highlighted how daily life has deteriorated for millions in Venezuela, where the economy has been in a freefall since the 2014 crash in oil prices.

Colombia’s foreign ministry said that at least 35,000 Venezuelans entered Colombia on Saturday, and their entry took place “in an orderly manner and under conditions of security.” The border was opened for roughly eight hours and will be opened again on Sunday, it said. Roughly 35,000 people also crossed during last week’s 12-hour border opening….. [read more]

EBT Cards Malfunctioning For 8 Straight Days, Riots Next?

Widespread reports continue to pour in from all over the nation of “glitches” with the food stamp system. It is eight days into the month and large numbers of people still have not received their benefits, and in other instances it is being reported that EBT cards are simply not working correctly. So what in the world is going on here? On there are scores of reports of problems with the EBT system from people all over the nation. Could this simply be another example of government incompetence, or is something else at work here?

I had heard some rumblings about this over the past few days, but I had not really taken them seriously until I read an article from highly respected author Ray Gano… [read more]
