Actually I was hoping for a quote, but here's how the reporter summarized the relevant part of what Whitaker apparently said during his testimony:

But when asked about any investigations into DOJ or FBI misconduct, Whitaker confirmed that department official John Huber was looking into the claims.

So is the question if I believe that Whitaker was lying about whether Huber was "looking into claims"? No, I guess he was probably told that, whether it's true or not, and depending on what the "claims" are. Do I believe that Whitaker's response means that Huber is investigating the serious crimes perpetrated by the Obama cabal during the pre- and post-election timeframes? No, I guess I don't. Not without evidence.

Btw, if Susan Rice, John Brennan, James Comey, Mark Elias or anyone from Perkins Coie were whining about being dragged before a grand jury, I'd believe it.

Extraneus @ 1:33

IANAL but do grand jury proceedings require the testimony of those suspected of committing a crime? I would think that a grand jury convened for the FISA abuse scandal or any other crimes committed by the Obama cabal would only need to see the evidence (text messages, emails, FISA forms, etc) to determine if an indictment was warranted.

henry

What evidence do we have that a grand jury is involved?

Extraneus

That's probably true, but not one peep from anyone who might have testified? No evidence that anyone's been subpoenaed or that there's even a GJ at all?

Horowitz is internal DoJ. Nothing to do with the Clinton campaign, CIA, NSA, White House, etc. The Carter Page FISA is all he's apparently investigating, and surely he can limit the damage to Obama & Co. as he strings that out.

I'm still hoping for the best, but I won't be surprised if it all just gets buried, maybe even with Trump's approval.

Note on daily markup by Chitown Lurker:

Futures gains and losses ARE indeed marked each day, and cashable at the end of each trading day. Profits left in the account daily are referred to as “Excess Margin”. It used to be that you left it in your account overnight, until Jon Corzine got caught using client’s excess margin to trade for himself. Since he was never prosecuted for it, now no one leaves anything except the minimum. Because of that, the market moves can be pretty brutal, as positions are automatically sold off to cover surprise losses.

That was my sole point MM, other than to praise you for all the effort. I'm glad I didn't piss you off.

Rebirth of socialism, and what to do about it:

https://freebeacon.com/columns/what-to-do-about-the-rebirth-of-socialism/

concludes:
At the very least we must defend religious freedom, and promote religious and civic education, if we are ever to address the denuded moral and cultural system that has become the breeding ground of the socialist revival.

hrtshpdbox

No, because giving you the tax back is not the same as giving you the profit back.

So, what Tom's plan was something like this:
You paid 10 dollars a share a long time ago, it's now worth 50 dollars. If you'd liquidated it, your long-term capital gains tax would be 15% on your 40 dollar per share profit, so that 6 dollars per share would be taxed to you over a ten-year period (with a two-year grace period before it kicked in). That's what I got from what he was saying the other day.

There are so many "what about if's" to it that it's not funny, including the certainty that no stock ends every year higher than last (which would make the current 3k annual maximum capital loss deduction too anemic).

The gist of it is that there's plenty of good reasons why we shouldn't owe Uncle Sam tax on something we haven't sold yet.

henry

anonamom, the opiate of the masses is the cure to socialism?

Tom R

That's probably true, but not one peep from anyone who might have testified?

Once again IANAL but I believe leaking the testimony of federal grand jury proceedings is a federal crime in and of itself. In other words, the fact that there have not been any “peeps” from those who testified is how it’s supposed to work.

Tom R, Wisconsin John Doe (pre-reform) it was illegal for any person to leak any info about the investigation. (Ignore Chisholm leaking to the Urinal Central in a daily basis). That was a unique feature of that law. Fed Grand Jury jurors can’t talk, but witnesses are free to do so,

henry

Tom R, your link specifies McCabe under grand jury by DC US Attorney, as teported by McCabe’s lawyer. Confirms two things:

1. Targets are free to talk

2. Huber is not involved.

Old Lurker

One cannot hide from the plain fact that there are only two reasons a wealth tax is being discussed.

1. The muddle might fall for (and thus vote for) the suggestion that the new tax will increase much needed cash to the government so the government can spend and transfer even more each year.

2. In a France 1789 or White Russia 1917 way, one class wants to take the jewels and heads and burn the estates of another class just because.

Several adages come to mind, but as to the first, "if you want less of something, tax it more". As to the second, "first they came for..." seems to fit.

So in the end, what happens is a riled up uneducated underclass will sell their votes to the bums for promises. Pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.

Sadly, this has worked for a long time for Dems and some Rs.

Chitown, I only vaguely remember the Corzine thing, but I'd thought futures excess can't be played with overnight by the FCM because futures balances must be held as segregated funds (instead of unsegregated as per stock side); I thought it had been that way for as long as I can remember (I could be wrong, tho).

Flew this morning to Brainerd for breakfast and met up a couple of buddies. The temp was a frosty 3F. I ran the engine sump heater all night and the oil temp was 31F. It was cold. Athena started and flew just fine. The biggest hassle was keeping the canopy clear because my breath was freezing on the inside making it hard to see outside. Once in the air the cabin heater eventually cleared things up. The other hassle was putting Athena back in the hangar. With some residual hard packed snow on the ramp, a slight incline, and an ageing body, I could not pull her inside. Fortunately my hangar mate has an electric tug and I was able to tie the tail wheel to the tug and pull her back inside.

I am back, having had to try 3 places just to buy a darn cat pan. I want one so my son's cat (who gets lonely) can sleep in here when my son decides to stay at his girlfriend's.

As I was wandering the aisles at Big Lots (where I actually, finally found the cat pan) I remembered that the building used to be a larger neighborhood grocery.

So that jogged my brain, and as I drove back home past the old neighborhoods I used to frequent when in high school, I saw 2 other old groceries, one which has become a cycle shop and the other a used furniture and appliance place. Also drove past the old post office, which still has its old flag pole but is the office building for a used car lot. LOTS of used car lots along the way, and the old building which had the swankiest flower shop on the south side is now empty and for sale.

Big Lots clientele seemed to be mostly Chin and Mexican immigrants, most of whom didn't speak English, and the cashier seemed glad that someone spoke to her.

I think the loss of small retailers and neighborhood shopping has caused a decline in community. You don't get much interaction shopping on Amazon, and the big grocers don't call you when a special cut of meat is available. Rather sad to see the places where my friends lived surrounded by stuff like that. I guess I am just an old lady who is sorry the past has been forgotten.

Agree with comments of Old Lurker and Henry and Captain H.
Also I am not convinced any major investigation progress has been made by Huber or Horowitz at this time. There doesn’t seem to be any sense of urgency there.
Perhaps this is being delayed because it would be more advantageous if it was revealed closer to the 2020 election.
Facts that we know:
MM is over zealous in her defense of President Trump.
TomR has an uncanny ability to insult almost every person on the blog at one time or another,today being no exception.

Re marked to market gain and actual loss: let's say that in 2021, President Warren on April 1, 2021 signs the Comprehensive Green Fairness, Equity Enhancing and Inclusivity New Deal Act of 2021. Mark to market is imposed. Legislation takes effect upon enactment. On May 1, 2021, OL buys 5 shares in Bringing Back L'Espalier All Over (BBLAO), a restaurant app start up that has quickly gone public, for one dollar per share. At the end of 2021, the shares have appreciated to two dollars per share (ten dollars of value). OL has a capital gain of five dollars in 2021 with respect to BBLAO. Let's assume that under the legislation, the capital gain on all marked to market gain is long term. OL pays tax on five dollars of long term capital gain (all of OL's other capital gains and losses netted to zero in 2021), and has basis in the BBLAO shares increased to ten dollars (five dollars original basis plus five dollars increase for the gain). On December 31, 2022, OL sells all five BBLAO shares for twenty cents per share (House Speaker Ocasio-Cortez has blamed the tanking markets on failure of the Agriculture Dept. to control cow farts), or one dollar. OL has a nine dollar long term capital loss.

For simplicity's sake, I have assumed no pay over time for the marked to market gain (in a pay over time system, it is possible basis would be increased over time as the tax is paid, but I don't think anyone in Congress has thought this through). I have also avoided the question of whether the long term and short term capital gain and loss rules would be affected by the mark to market rules (I simply imposed my simple rule that all marked to market gain is long term). However, I think under any set of rules, there is no separate tax recovery provision. It would be handled with basis adjustments.

Three of Gary Martin’s victims were gunned down in the room where the meeting was being held, said Aurora Police Chief Kristen Ziman. One of the victims was Trevor Wehner, a 21-year-old human resources intern and student at Northern Illinois University who was on his first day on the job

https://www.foxnews.com/us/aurora-shooter-opened-fire-at-termination-meeting-one-victim-was-hr-intern-on-first-day

henry

From that Fox article, the shooter had a FOID card. (A FOID card is required in IL to purchase or possess a firearm or ammo. Residents of other states may transport firearms and ammo in IL for sporting use — aka national trap shooting tournament is now based on IL— or hunting given a non resident license. Law enforcement will try to ignore those conditions, I hate IL).

hrtshpdbox

TC, with TM's plan (at the first reckoning of tax due, they would be paid over a ten-year period), I agree that basis would be adjusted and then continually adjusted annually, with taxes due or loss deduction granted along the way. In that way, I suppose proponents of such a thing would assert, when the owner passes away there would be no need to levy an estate tax, since they'd been paid. Problem with that, of course, is that the estate tax is a ripoff anyway, and should just be done away with outright.

In futures, by the way, all closed-out transactions are regarded as partially long-term and partially short-term (I forget the percents), regardless of the time held of the actual trade. Makes things a lot easier.

GUS

Henry, clearly what this calls for, is SENSITIVITY TRAINING.

Box, the “you didn’t build that” theory makes all arguments on estate tax moot. It is and always was the government’s money (unless you transfer it to an approved 501c$.

Indeed Gus. Northern Illinois should get right on that. Their student caused a shooting on day one as an intern.

Illinois has the tightest and most restrictive gun laws in the country. They even caught that a felon wanted a concealed carry license and said no. Follow up on his FOID card and gun purchase history? Meh.

Per Hauser’s Law, there is a limit to tax revenues regardless of rate:

Historically, since the end of World War II, federal tax receipts as a percentage of gross domestic product averaged 17.9%, with a range from 14.4% to 20.9% between 1946 - 2007.[2]

Note 45% of residents pay no federal tax. Why punish”rich” people more? The problem is the government spends far far too much.

2020 Candidate Kirsten Gillibrand Supports ‘X’ as a Third Gender

Transgender American Civil Liberties Union organizer Palana Belken posed the question to Gillibrand at an LGBT-focused meet-and-greet in New Hampshire. CBS News reported Belken asked Gillibrand if “X” should be recognized as a third gender for those identifying as “non-binary” at the federal level. Belken applauded Gillibrand’s speedy “yes.”

Belken pointed to transgender New Hampshire State Rep. Gerri Cannon as the source of her question, according to the report. Cannon has pushed state bills to allow “X” on birth certificates and driver’s licenses. A handful of states currently allow the third gender option.



I think I dislike Gillibrand most of all. In a better world she'd be a $20 whore.
