Crypto Revolution: AZ Senate Passes Bill Officially Recognizing Bitcoin as Money

moneymoney

Arizona — Last year, the state of Arizona went after the federal government’s attack on gold and silver by eliminating the capital gains taxes on precious metals. This paved the way to deal a massive blow to the Federal Reserve and end their monopoly on money. While the precious metals move was certainly noteworthy, the legislation passed this month by the Arizona Senate is nothing short of revolutionary as it officially recognizes cryptocurrencies as money by allowing residents to pay their taxes in it.

Arizona Senate Bill 1091, titled Income tax payments; bitcoin, was introduced to the Senate on January 10 and after going through several committees, on Feb. 8, 2018, it passed. It will now make its way to the House.

According to the bill’s text, it specifically names bitcoin and litecoin, as well as “any other cryptocurrency” recognized by the department as official forms of payment.

A TAXPAYER MAY PAY THEIR INCOME TAX LIABILITY USING A PAYMENT GATEWAY, SUCH AS BITCOIN, LITECOIN OR ANY OTHER CRYPTOCURRENCY RECOGNIZED BY THE DEPARTMENT, USING ELECTRONIC PEER-TO-PEER SYSTEMS.

After the state accepts the cryptocurrency, it will then convert them to US dollars, according to the legislation.

 THE DEPARTMENT SHALL CONVERT CRYPTOCURRENCY PAYMENTS TO UNITED STATES DOLLARS AT THE PREVAILING RATE AFTER RECEIPT AND SHALL CREDIT THE TAXPAYER’S ACCOUNT WITH THE CONVERTED DOLLAR AMOUNT ACTUALLY RECEIVED LESS ANY FEES OR COSTS INCURRED BY THE DEPARTMENT FOR CONVERSION.

The bill now moves on to Arizona’s House of Representatives.

If the bill passes in the house, it will become adopted and Arizona would become the first state in the U.S. to accept cryptocurrency tax payments beginning from and after December 31, 2019, as stated in the bill’s text.

Referring to the tax bill, Arizona State Republican Rep. Jeff Weninger, told Fox News:

“It’s one of a litany of bills that we’re running that is sending a signal to everyone in the United States, and possibly throughout the world, that Arizona is going to be the place to be for blockchain and digital currency technology in the future.”

“The ease of use, being able to do it in the middle of the night, being able to do it at home while you’re watching TV,” Rep. Weninger said. “I think in a few years this isn’t even going to be a question.”

Jack Bitlis, who owns Tag Employer Services also spoke to FOX News, noting that the blockchain and cryptocurrencies are the future. Bitlis stands by his word too as his payroll company allows employees to receive their paychecks through bitcoin and to invest part of their 401(k) into bitcoin.

“We’re living in just a hugely interesting time and, really, we just want to be a part of it,” Biltis said. “We just know that we could be, as Arizona’s chosen to be, at the forefront of this time and encourage these new technologies. That’s just an exciting place to be.”

Naturally, there are some less than optimistic lawmakers in Arizona who are applying Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt (FUD) on the legislation, saying bitcoin could crash.

“If we had a bill that allowed people to pay their taxes in bitcoin directly, that puts the volatility burden on all other taxpayers because it would mean that that money goes to the state and then the state has to take the responsibility of how to exchange it,” Arizona State Senate Minority Leader Steve Farley said.

Speaking like a true shill of the Federal Reserve, and ignoring the fuvolatilityility of the US dollar, Farley followed up his FUD by saying, “these are American dollars. They’re good enough for me. They should be good enough for anybody else who pays taxes in this country.”

Countering Farley’s negativity and unfounded fear, however, Biltis noted, “It’s always a little scary and thrilling at the beginning, it was with anything (including) the Internet…The world is going to look so different in 20 years and the people that are going to be truly successful are the people that embrace it now and are on the leading edge of that curve.”

As for now, we are crossing our fingers that this bill passes the house and paves the way for a crypto-revolution.

After that, we just need to figure out how to stop the state from taking our tax dollars in the first place.

The President Cannot Give Away America Through Chain Migration or Recognizing Sharia Law

Job applicants or terrorists? Our national security demands that it be stopped.

Why do the Democrats needs millions of illegal aliens to become citizens? It is simple, they need illegal aliens to vote communist, I mean Democratic, in 2018 and beyond, to ever have any chance of winning. And why is this true? Because no American in their right mind could support the insane, social maxist, economic killing policies of the Democrats. Because of politicians like Chuck Schumer and Hillary, the Democrats are trying to stave off extinction. This is why the DACA issue is so important to them.

President Trump is trying to make a deal, a deal that will keep the government open for business, but will not give away the country. It is a deal that many on the right willl oppose. President Trump is  proposing a path to citizenship for 1.8 million illegal immigrant (DACA) “Dreamers”. Trump’s offer more than triples any action contemplated by Obama. Despite this fact, one can reasonably anticipate that the Democrats will say that it is not enough.

The President’s action would grant legal status to a little less than 2 million people, but the number of beneficiaries is tremendously more than the 690,000 in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

The White House said they needed to increase the number of DACA persons in order to put a permanent end to catch-and-release programs of INS, but mostly corrupt sanctuary cities, where many feel that the leaders should be jailed for their illegal behaviors. The proposal also will deport persons overstaying their visas and demands $25 billion for the construction of “the Wall”.

Appropriately, the President will also insist on strict limits on the chain of family migration across the board,  not just for newly legalized Democratic voters, err… I mean Dreamer. This prpposal would allow the beneficiaries of this generous offer to petition for spouses and minor children but would prohibit parents and siblings of adult children from the so-called chain migration program championed by Obama.

Many in the President’s base will cry foul and claim that his offers go to far. Some fail to consider that DACA members did not have a choice in coming  to the United States because the decision was done before their age of decision. Secondly, most of the DACA group would have nothing to return to with regard to their country of origin. There is certainly something to be said to the humanitarian issue. The only “friends and family plan” exceptions that I would like to see would be exemptions for minor children from DACA along with minor siblings (1st degree biological relatives). I would not support anything more.

This compromise must never be extended for any reason than imminent danger caused by an invading army and I mean nothing more. this law can never be changed.

What used to be a Communist stronghold, has become one of the last democratic bastions of freedom from tyranny and tyranny’s high priest, George Soros.  Hungary and Poland as well as Austria are making great gains against being occupied by the hordes of colonists coming from the Middle East and other parts of the globe. However, before we look at solutions, we must first look at the problems and how they are being applied to America.

What does the future hold for a country that refuses to protect its citizens from foreign intrusion by criminal elements such as the cartels?  America’s future may have been foretold  in G. K. Chesterton’s, The Flying Inn (1914). The book provides present day Americans with an opportunity to understand what is happening to their loss of culture and of national sovereignty. The book consists of a “fictional” account of how England had been stripped of its cultural identity. The book was written at the end of the British imperialistic period of dominance in which England had collapsed under the sheer weight of attempting to maintain its vast empire.

In the book, Chesterton maintains that England lost far more than its preeminent position as the world’s sole super power. He postulated that England had lost its national soul through the unintended integration of its culture with more “barbaric cultures” that it had previously conquered. The author also felt that the Roman Empire followed a very similar pattern. I submit that the United States has been following this same linear path of self-destruction for 40 years and this suicidal national path has intensified with the beginning of admitting massive amounts of immigrants from the Middle East who have no intention of adopting the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. Please note that this article is not advocating for the stopping all immigration. This article highlights the dangers of unrestricted immigration by people who have no interest in assimilating and respecting the laws of the United States.

The protagonist in The Flying Inn, Dalroy, proclaimed that great nations have frequently followed a similar pattern of progressive and complete self-destruction.

  1. The great nation declares victory over the barbarians.
  2. The great nation begins to enjoy the fruits of cheap labor by employing the barbarians that it had conquered.
  3. The barbarians become so enmeshed into the great nation, that an alliance with barbarians is formed (e.g., de facto amnesty including members of criminal organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood and the Sinoloa drug cartel as well as HSBC Bank and the Clinton Foundation).
  4. Assimilation is followed with the barbarians becoming a privileged class. Thus, the great nation is conquered.

Certainly the relationship between the United States and various countries south of our border; parallels Chesterton’s stunningly accurate prophecies by describing what has happened to present day America. Consider the following parallels which strikingly correspond to Dalroy’s view of how empires crumble:

  1. The United States fulfills its “Manifest Destiny” mandate by provoking and winning a war with Mexico in order to gain a southern railroad route to California. The great nation was victorious. Dalroy’s first principle is fulfilled.
  2. The economies of the two countries bifurcate and the United States begins to enjoy the fruits of its imperialistic labors. The conquered people provides nearly 160 years of cheap labor which helps to fuel the economic growth of the United States . Guest workers and illegal immigrants trickle into the United States. Despite the comparatively low wages, more immigrants come north to experience the bountiful leftovers of their former conquerors. This trend continues to the point in which the original trickle of guest workers and illegal immigrants becomes a raging tsunami of humanity most of whom are seeking to experience the American dream at the expense of their former conquerors. The great nation employed those that it had conquered. Dalroy’s second principle is fulfilled.
  3. Average American citizens begin to note the loss of economic standing, culture and traditions. “Special privilege” programs, such as De Facto Amnesty instead of criminal prosecution for organized criminal activities, free medical and free education, serve to fully integrate the former illegal aliens into the mainstream of American society. To frame the desired paradigm shift, legal terms such as “illegal alien” become likened to racial epitaphs uttered during the worst days of the old “Jim Crow” laws. The ”politically correct police” (i.e., the corporate media) label all Americans who desire to secure their borders, in this age of terrorism, as racists and xenophobic. The alliance has been formed. Dalroy’s third principle has been fulfilled.
  4. Illegal immigrant subgroups (e.g., CALEXIT, Reconquista de Atzalan, MECHA) begin to proclaim that the takeover of America is moving forward and if the present occupants of this country do not like it; then these “Euros” can “go back to Europe .” (In this scenario, it’s not certain where American citizens whose historical roots lie in Africa, the Middle East, South America, Mexico, Panama, Canada, Asia, the Pacific Rim, the Caribbean, and most of all, Native Americans, are supposed to return to). At what point do we admit that the great nation of America has been conquered and is in the process of being successfully occupied? Ultimately, how many people from third world countries can inhabit the United States until we are considered to be a third world country?

Nut unlike the UK and the Roman Empire, America has been hit with double whammy of immigration that is not overwhelmingly charcterized by assimilation.

In addition to our original immigration crisis, America is facing a massive immigration problem on a second front:

  1. The United States fulfills its “Manifest Destiny” international economic mandate by bribing leaders of the Middle East in order to gain control of Middle Eastern oil.   The great nation was victorious and the Petrodollar was established. Dalroy’s first principle is fulfilled.
  2. The economies of the two countries bifurcate and the United States begins to enjoy the fruits of its imperialistic labors. Oil provides the backing thaat was needed to help the fiat dollar to survive since FDR had abandoned the Gold Standard, The conquered people, enslaved through economic imperiaism, provided nearly over 70 years of cheap energy and backing for the US dollar, which helps to fuel the economic growth of the United States. Guest workers and students trickle into the United States from the Middle East.  The US engages in wars of economic imperialism (ie BP and Exxon control 80% of Iraqi oil). The wars create an opportunity for the globalists to kill patriotism and deculturize the West including the United States through massive immigration under the guise of refugees fleeing for their lives.  And on and on it goes.

Death by immigration is always the same, every time, in each and every case. The President’s deal must contain a proviso that this law can never be changed without a Constitutional Amendment being added. Why? Because our national survival, the integrity of our traditional culture(s) and our Christian faith is endangered. And under no circumstances can local or state governments recognize, from a statutory perspective, any aspect of Sharia Law. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land with no exceptions, now or in the future.

CBS Ignores Guatemala As First to Follow U.S. Lead in Recognizing Jerusalem

On Monday, CBS This Morning was alone among the morning newscasts in ignoring Guatemala’s announcement that it will be first to follow the U.S. lead and recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and move its embassy there. The CBS Evening News also avoided mentioning Guatemala as ABC’s World News Tonight and the NBC Nightly News were both preempted.

Given the fact that other nations recognized Israel in 1948 only after the U.S. went first, such an event in modern times could similarly be historically significant.

CBS This Morning news reader Tony Dokoupil managed to omit the Guatemala angle even while noting that President Donald Trump “stoked regional tensions” by recognizing Jerusalem, as the CBS correspondent informed viewers that Pope Francis had called for a two-state solution in his Christmas message.

At 7:04 a.m. ET, CBS’s Dokoupil informed viewers: “Celebrations marking the holiday are taking place across the world the morning. At the Vatican, Pope Francis delivered the traditional Christmas Day message from the central balcony overlooking St. Peter’s Square. The Pope called for a negotiated two-state solution to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”

He added: “Then he said there should be a peaceful coexistence with mutually agreed and internationally recognized borders. His comments come after President Trump stoked regional tensions when he recognized Jerusalem as Israeli’s capital.”

By contrast, at almost the same time on ABC’s Good Morning America, news reader Ron Claiborne informed viewers: “And Guatemala is following the U.S. lead and says it will move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. The president of the Central American nation made that Christmas Eve announcement on Facebook. Guatemala was one of only nine countries to vote against a UN resolution condemning U.S. recognition of Israel’s capital.”

And at 7:03 a.m. ET, on NBC’s Today show, during a longer story on domestic political news and the President, correspondent Garrett Haake recalled: “And finally the President will wake up this morning a political Christmas gift under his tree from the Central American country of Guatemala, who announced overnight that they, too, will be moving their embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, the first such country to follow the U.S.’s lead since our announcement earlier this month.”

About an hour later, NBC ran a nearly identical report.

Additionally, CNN’s New Day ran three briefs on the subject, and FNC’s Fox and Friends ran two briefs. MSNBC’s First Look ran two briefs during the 5:00 a.m. ET hour, and and a brief also ran at about 8:30 a.m. during a pre-recorded version of Morning Joe.

In the evening, FNC’s Special Report with Bret Baier and the PBS NewsHour also mentioned the story, making CBS very much alone in not taking notice.

Despite Trump’s declaration, State Dep not recognizing Jerusalem

Turkey: Recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is ‘red line’ for Muslims









 






Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday that US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital would be a “red line” for Muslims. He also warned that such a step would force Ankara to cut diplomatic ties with the Jewish state.

In a speech before the Turkish parliament, Erdogan also said he would call for a meeting with the Organization for Islamic Cooperation to oppose any move recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

US President Donald Trump was expected to weigh in on the sensitive foreign policy matter Monday, but public warnings from allies and private phone calls between world leaders led to the White House delaying its decision.

Turkey has been a vocal critic of the potential recognition.

“If the [current] status of Jerusalem is changed and another step is taken… that would be a major catastrophe,” Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said during a televised press conference on Monday, as quoted by AFP. “It would completely destroy the fragile peace process in the region, and lead to new conflicts, new disputes and new unrest.”

The decision has been postponed once already by the new administration. “The president has been clear on this issue… It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when,” White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said. Israel regards Jerusalem as its capital, although the international consensus is that the holy city’s status should be determined in peace talks with the Palestinians. Palestinian leaders hope to claim the eastern part of the city as their own capital.

Israel has long insisted that Jerusalem is its capital, but all foreign embassies are located in Tel Aviv. In October, Trump temporarily waived a law requiring the US to relocate its embassy to Jerusalem. The Jerusalem Embassy Act was passed during Bill Clinton’s first term in 1995, but has been waived every six months by US presidents ever since.

Turkish-Israeli relations have faced setbacks in the past. In 2011, Turkey expelled the Israeli ambassador to Ankara and downgraded diplomatic relations after Israel refuses to apologize for the deaths of eight Turkish citizens and a Turkish-American during a raid on a ship carrying aid to Palestinians in Gaza. Full diplomatic relations were not restored until 2016. More recently, Erdogan threatened to cut ties with the Jewish state over its support for an independent Kurdish state.
