Social Security Administration Makes CHILLING Announcement – Senior Citizens Affected…

What the hell is going on?!



The most recent audit of the pyramid scheme that is the Social Security Administration has uncovered some bone-chilling facts.

This past week the Social Security Administration’s inspector general revealed that just over 300 conferences cost taxpayers roughly $100,000 each in travel, meals, and lodging expenses during a three-year period.

300 conferences in 3 years? That’s about one conference every 3 to 4 days. What do they need to talk about every 3 to 4 days? How to continue ripping off the American Tax Paying peasant? Social Security is already insolvent, how do they get away with doing this. When did our government become just a vehicle used to rip off its citizens of their hard earned money?

Forbes Reports:

Social Security Insolvency: When And What To Do

When is Social Security going under? Before you can collect?

Bad news: The system is already bust. More money is going out in benefits and overhead ($714 billion a year) than is coming in from payroll taxes ($646 billion). For now, the government is covering the shortfall the way it pays for other things: by borrowing, collecting income tax and printing money.

There’s supposed to be $2.7 trillion set aside in a trust fund to cover Social Security benefits. It turns out that this fund is a fiction. The savings account is empty.

No, benefits are not going to be sliced right away. But the insolvency of the Social Security Administration means that down the road big changes are inevitable in payroll taxes or benefits or both. These will not be good. The purpose of this essay is to look at what changes are possible and how you can defend yourself.

I know a fair number of people who started their benefits early even though they could afford to wait. That is, they collected at 66 or even at 62 instead of waiting until age 70, when the payout reaches its maximum. They’re afraid that Congress will double-cross the late starters by chopping payouts.

I’ll consider the risk of a bad outcome like that, as well as the probability of a real reform that would replace the phony trust fund with real savings. But first, let’s look at the accounting for the system we’ve got.

When you contribute to a 401(k), you build up a genuine trust fund. Your savings are invested in stocks and bonds, which in turn fund capital assets like software, Pizza Huts and medical inventions.

When the federal government set up the Social Security fund, it didn’t do that. Instead, it “invested” in its own bonds.

Consider this analogy. Farmer Jones, saving for his old age, puts $10 a week into a coffee tin. He amasses $1,000. Then there’s a bad crop year and he takes the money out, replacing it in the tin with a piece of paper that says “IOU—retirement—$1,000.”

He fully intends to put the money back after a good crop. But honestly, how much does he have set aside now? Zero. With government accounting, he could claim to have $1,000.

The balance sheet fiction carries over to the income side. The “bonds” pay “interest” and this is used to help pay benefits. Another revenue item is a theoretically dedicated portion of income tax collections, the amount coming from an artificial boost in the taxability of Social Security benefits. (You should have to count only half your benefit as income, but the formula makes you report up to 85%. See How Much Of Your Social Security Benefit Is Taxable?)

A fairer way to describe what is going on: Fica (Federal Insurance Contributions Act) taxes are running $68 billion short and the government is covering that out of general revenue.

The shortfall is going to get worse as baby boomers age and the ratio of workers to retirees goes down. Come 2034, so say the system’s trustees in their 2015 report, the trust fund will be exhausted and, absent a law change, they will be able to disburse only 75% of promised benefits.

The law will change before then, that’s for sure. Here are the ways Congress could balance income and outflow:

  1. Increase the payroll tax, currently 11.7%. (If your salary is $100,000 your compensation, including the Social Security tax paid by your employer, is $106,200, and $12,400 goes to the Social Security Administration for retirement. Divide $12,400 by $106,200.) A two-point boost would erase much of the coming revenue shortfalls.
    1. Cut the cost-of-living adjustment. Legislators could fiddle with the formula, perhaps limiting the damage to higher-income recipients.
    2. Increase the tax base. The first $118,500 of salary is subject to Fica. This ceiling might be raised or, as with Medicare, eliminated. High-paid workers would get back only a sliver of their higher contributions in the form of higher benefits.
    3. Raise the retirement age. The normal retirement age is now 66, and it’s going up to 67 for people born after 1959. It could go to 69. That would be roughly equivalent to cutting benefits by 10%.
    4. Increase the maximum fraction of benefits subject to income tax from 85% to 100%.
    5. Steal benefits. When he was running for president, Chris Christie proposed reducing Social Security payments to people with retirement incomes above $80,000 and eliminating them at incomes above $200,000. This would mean not just taking money from the wealthy but also taking money from middle-class frugal workers and handing it to middle-class spendthrifts. He didn’t run far on this plank.

What’s going to happen? My guess is that Congress will spread the damage by adopting a blend of the first five choices. As for the proposal from Governor Traffic Cone: While we can’t rule out means-pilfering, the likelihood is low. I would put the odds at 33 to 1 against.

What to do?

Measure your benefit. In What’s Your Social Security Benefit Worth? there’s a calculator that evaluates your payout stream, discounted for time and mortality. It assumes that existing formulas (which reward you for waiting until 70 to collect) remain in place. If you’re healthy, it will probably tell you that waiting leaves you several hundred thousand dollars to the good.

As you read above, Social Security is already insolvent. It’s time we just abolish the whole scam and start over again.

Maybe a solution would be to privatize the system by just letting the people themselves pick and choose where to put their retirement savings?

Not sure what the solution is at this point though since banks and savings and loans are also crooks and we wouldn’t want to lose all our retirement money to a scam while banking CEO’s, whom will never be held accountable, get richer and richer.  Just look at the 2008 banking meltdown where our government and the banking industry colluded to scam the US taxpayer out of billions of our hard-earned dollars under the guise that the banks are “Too Big to Fail.”

Sadly, the taxpaying peasant who got stuck with the bill wasn’t too big to fail and thousands of hard working Americans lost their homes to foreclosures.  Not one banking executive, nor politician, who pushed for asinine regulations such as The Community Reinvestment Act were ever held to account. In fact, banking executes came out even better than before because of their so-called “Golden Parachutes”

Please share if you believe the American Citizen deserves the right to decided where their hard earned money goes….

President Trump Wants To Spread A Message Of Peace While In Davos




President Trump is again on an overseas trip rubbing shoulders with other world leaders and clarifying his vision for America. President Trump ran on a platform of making America great which was a not so veiled slight toward his predecessor. Many conservatives considered the Obama Administration to have pushed America back in the eyes of many nations around the world. His desire to make sure that America lost its appearance of being an overpowering force, left us in somewhat of a compromised position.

The President’s stance on international policy has been simple; put America first, and help out other people second. Since it’s his job to make sure that Americans are looked after, it’s also his job to make sure the rest of the world knows that we won’t be hurting ourselves to bow to international political pressure. The President’s trip to Switzerland has been no exception, and the South China Morning Post reports that the first impression he’s left on the country has been an obvious one:

“Armed with his ‘America First’ philosophy, US President Donald Trump arrived in Switzerland on Thursday to tout his economic agenda and lure foreign investment at a global summit that stresses free trade and international cooperation.

‘We’re very happy to be here,’ Trump said as he arrived at the World Economic Forum. ‘The United States is doing very well, and will continue to do well and this will be a very exciting two days.’

He said he was bringing a message of ‘peace and prosperity’ to the gathering of world leaders, business executives and celebrities.

Asked whether he would be supported at the forum, Trump said: ‘I already am. You take a look.’

He had apparently not seen reports of the massive banner reading ‘Trump not welcome!’ that had been hung on the side of a mountain by Swiss activist group Campax.

Trump then went into a meeting with UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who is angling for trade deals for her country when Brexit takes place next year. He said that the discussions would lead to a ‘tremendous increase’ in trade with Britain, while May said the two countries were ‘on the same wavelength in every respect’.

While the president is expected to declare that the United States is open for business, the protectionist-leaning president’s attendance at the annual gathering for free-trade-loving political and business elites has raised eyebrows.

His decision to sign new tariffs boosting American manufacturers this week has prompted fresh concerns about his nationalist tendencies.

‘I’m going to Davos right now to get people to invest in the United States,’ Trump said on Wednesday before the overnight flight to Europe.

‘I’m going to say: ‘Come into the United States. You have plenty of money.’ But I don’t think I have to go, because they’re coming, they’re coming at a very fast clip.’

In a tweet sent before departing the White House Trump said, ‘Our economy is now booming and with all I am doing, will only get better … Our country is finally WINNING again!’

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin got to Davos ahead of Trump and insisted Wednesday that the United States supports free trade.

‘’America First’ does mean working with the rest of the world,’ said Mnuchin, who is leading the largest US delegation ever to attend the exclusive gathering.

‘It just means that President Trump is looking out for American workers and American interests, no different than he expects other leaders would look out for their own.’

US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross argued that new US tariffs on imported solar-energy components and large washing machines are meant to deal with ‘inappropriate behaviour‘ by other countries and are not protectionist. Still, Ross conceded that China could respond by imposing its own tariffs on US products.

As he signed the tariffs, Trump said he was heading to Davos to talk ‘about investing in the United States again.’”

It seems obvious that a president would be looking out for his country and not others while overseas, but in recent years the waters have gotten extremely muddied by the idea that helping the world would help America. Perhaps in some cases that is true, but in the case of America, we tend to be treated like the wealthy uncle who everyone can just ask for things from, and give nothing in return.

Everyone wanted to know what was on the POTUS’s mind when he landed, and here’s what he had to say:

Didn’t get it? Once again for the cheap seats in the back:

If seeing is believing, then you’d better find that the President doesn’t plan to back off of his America first plan. His goal is to make our country better than ever. Whether you agree with him or not, he’s charted a path and is marching forward. We ALL will make America great again.

BREAKING!! Trump Just Received HIGHEST Honor! He Just Beat Out President Ronald Reagan!




According to the highly prestigious conservative think tank The Heritage Foundation, President Donald Trump has done a remarkable job during the first year of his presidency. His accomplishments are surprisingly a lot better than the American Conservative icon that was President Ronald Reagan!

The heritage foundation is rightly so calling President Donald Trump the most conservative president they have ever rated. And after the eight disastrous and downright anti-American liberal years of Barack Hussein Obama, this is very positive news for both the fiscal and social future of our nation.

After each liberal Presidential Administration, the Heritage foundation begins developing a list policies that a new Republican administration could adopt if he were to win. In 2016 this list included a variety of initiatives. Some of which included reimposing work requirements for welfare recipients, ending the DACA program which shields young illegal aliens brought here illegally as children, withdrawing from the disastrous and one-sided Paris climate accord, eliminating certain unfair gender identity protections, appointing conservative judges and gutting the heart of Obamacare by removing the individual and employer mandate. President Trump is a master at success according to his first year as President.

In a statement, this week The Heritage foundation confirmed that President Trump has checked off 64 percent of those items which were on the 2016 list. Most of which were enacted either executive order or other means of enforcement. They even went as far as to include President Trump’s budget which was great but never voted on by Congress.

Via The Heritage Foundation:

“Trump Administration Embraces Heritage Foundation Policy Recommendations January 23rd, 2018

One year after taking office, President Donald Trump and his administration have adopted nearly two-thirds of the policy recommendations from The Heritage Foundation’s “Mandate for Leadership.”

The “Mandate for Leadership” series includes five individual publications, totaling approximately 334 unique policy recommendations. Analysis completed by Heritage determined that 64 percent of the policy prescriptions were included in Trump’s budget, implemented through regulatory guidance, or under consideration for action in accordance with The Heritage Foundation’s original proposals.

“President Trump had an extraordinarily successful first year,” says Thomas Binion, director of congressional and executive branch relations at The Heritage Foundation. “He put a conservative on the Supreme Court and he enacted historic pro-growth tax reform. This analysis demonstrates the lesser-known policy success that his administration has been fighting hard to enact.”

Heritage Foundation research analysts began developing the policy recommendations in 2016 during the presidential campaign with the following principles in mind: free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.

With approximately 70 former Heritage employees working for the Trump transition team or as part of the administration, the policy recommendations have served as guidelines for reducing the size and scope of the federal government through specific and detailed actions.

The first “Mandate for Leadership” was released in January 1981, containing policy proposals of reform that would make government more efficient and effective. President Ronald Reagan distributed Heritage’s book at his first Cabinet meeting.

“As President Reagan did in the 1980s,” Binion said, “President Trump has embraced the comprehensive recommendations made in the ‘Mandate for Leadership.’ These achievements have led to economic growth, a stronger national defense, and a restoration of the rule of law.”

Over the past several months, Heritage’s executive branch relations staff reviewed the 334 policy recommendations and met with senior administration officials in the several agencies. Heritage analysts briefed administration officials on the recommendations, provided additional insight and information, and advocated for reform.”

By contrast, during Reagan’s first year in office, Reagan can only claim 49 percent of Heritage’s wish list were checked off. This is excellent news and a big slap in the face to the so-called conservative leaders who to this day call themselves #neverTrumpers but who claim to pray at the altar of former President Ronald Reagan. This proves all of them were nothing more than just peons for the establishment and the swamp all along. They never cared about conservatism, all they cared about was keeping the gravy train going and maintaining the status quo alive. Maybe they just went with the flow of things to save their job and didn’t care about politics?

Please share if you are proud to support President Trump.

What will be President Trump’s next most significant accomplishment for the American people? Discuss this with your friends and talk about it in the comment section.

Trump Just Pissed Everyone Off With The AWESOME New Picture That Went Up In White House!!




The White House is filled with historical pieces and artifacts that represent our nation’s history, but perhaps none are so controversial as what President Donald Trump just donned the walls of the West Wing with today. Among the painted pieces of notable figures in our nation’s history, is a new framed piece of work that comes with a clear message that cannot be ignored. Now, idiots everywhere are infuriated about what our leader had the guts to put up that we’re pretty sure his supporters are going to love.

The First Family is getting comfortable in their new home, just as the Obamas did in their disrespectful way that nobody seemed to have a problem with. When Trump moved in and began putting his personal touch on the People’s House, all hell broke loose with accusations of tactless taste that his predecessor never got when hosting rappers and their wives. Whether people agree or disagree with what our President just put on the walls, he had the right to celebrate his victory in the way he chose to decorate.

The White House isn’t just a place where the president lives, it’s a monument that represents milestones in leadership throughout our nation’s history. Perhaps not a single leader has been so controversial as our current Commander-in-Chief who overcame all odds to call this place home. Because of that, he has every right to document this incredible feat with a framed piece that shows exactly how that happened.

The media tried to portray that Trump’s opposition, Hillary Clinton, had a huge lead in the presidential race. However, one picture proved that wrong, which has now become the West Wing’s latest and perhaps most extraordinary piece of artwork.

Trump didn’t become president by a mere margin — he won by a landslide of votes where it counted most. The Electoral College is the deciding vote and the now infamous image of which way each area of every state went has become its own modern art on display in the White House, and for good reason.

Trey Yingst was among the first to spot this new display and seemingly without realizing the can of controversy he was opening with this Tweeted picture of it, he simply stated, ” Spotted: a map to be hung somewhere in the West Wing.” The image of the Electoral College Map from the election Trump swept in 2016 accompanied his sentiment and infuriated idiots around the country who couldn’t fathom why Trump would display such a thing.

It’s unknown at what point these Democratic degenerates forgot who they were talking about — thinking that somehow it was out of character for Trump to gloat. When it’s his right to do so by having earned it through honest means and against all odds, he should display that victory since it sends a message about what America is all about. Trump was truthful in his lead and the media was not, however, this is photo proof of that bias and that the American dream can be accomplished despite any adversary against you, and needs to be displayed for that reason..

Perhaps the most humorous part of the outrage over this imagery in the West Wing is that the same people who publicly express how tasteless and gross it is, in their opinion, were in support of a wife using the desk her husband received disgusting sexual favors at during his time in office. I think what it comes down to is that the truth hurts and no matter how much some people in America hate Trump, they can’t deny that he legitimately painted the country red in approval of him.

It’s often said that “a picture says a thousand words” but this one speaks volumes beyond that. Trump beat supposed frontrunner Hillary Clinton by far more than a thousand Electoral College votes. This wasn’t just a victory for him, but for the American people who were heard and deserve to have the piece of our country’s history commemorated on the wall of the White House. Every little girl and boy in America with a dream to make a difference and become president one day can do that, just like Trump did as a non-career politician. That’s significant and part of what makes America great.
