These 20 Americans Own More Wealth than Half of All US Citizens Combined – And It’s Getting Worse

An outright jaw-dropping report was released on Monday that draws attention to the staggering wealth of just a small handful of people. The report, titled Billionaire Bonanza: The Forbes 400 and the Rest of Us, “exposes the extreme wealth concentrated within the fortunes of the 400 wealthiest Americans and compares this wealth to the much more meager assets of several different segments of American society.” Chuck Collins and Josh Hoxie, the authors of the report, described a compelling picture about the top 20 of those 400 people. America’s 20 wealthiest people — a group that could fit comfortably in one single Gulfstream G650 luxury jet –­ now own more wealth than the bottom half of the American population combined. Let that sink in. A group of people that could stand in your living room owns more wealth the 160,000,000 other Americans. So why is that? Of course, becoming rich is no […] Read More

REPORT: IRS Continues SWAT Raids for Evasion While Hundreds of Agents Avoid Paying Any Taxes at All

Washington, D.C. – The Associated Press has reported that over 1,600 IRS employees have willfully committed tax evasion in a 10-year span; most still employed in spite of a 1998 law calling for termination in such cases. Even worse, it has been reported that many of the tax-evading agents were active in enforcing the federal tax laws they have broken. The agents found many ways to evade taxes, including “improperly claiming dependents, repeated failure to file timely tax returns, and claiming a tax credit for first-time homebuyers when the worker didn’t buy a house.” While only 25% of the willful violators were fired, the report revealed that some of these agents received “promotions, raises and bonuses” after being caught breaking the laws they enforce. In response to the revelations, Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee stated, “It is crucial that IRS employees are held to […] Read More

Nurses Coming Clean About Government’s ‘Super-Race’ Forced Sterilizations

  It sounds like something out of Nazi Germany, but it happened right in the United States. Now, former nurses are coming forward, admitting and lamenting their roles in a government forced-sterilization of those deemed “defective.” “Ground Zero” for the government plans for a “super-race” was at the Lynchburg State Colony for Epileptics and Feebleminded. Former nurse Celia Vandegrift is 87, but she explains that her memory is still crystal clear with regards to the forced-sterilizations she took part in administering. The government-run facility housed those who were epileptic, mentally disabled and others determined by the State to be “socially inadequate.” Vandegrift says she personally administered thousands of forced sterilizations as part of a government effort to rid society of those deemed defective. All of this was literally for the purpose of creating what the government claimed would be a “super-race.” Al-Jazeera’s “America Tonight” sat down with Vandegrift, who explained “it’s what our legislators […] Read More

2014: Calling Out Obama On Ferguson ‘Violence’ and the Hypocrisy of the State

  Editorial by Counter Current News contributor Cindy Sheehan “There is Never any Excuse for Violence” The above is a quote from the War Criminal in Chief Barack Obama in his statement about the miscarriage of justice that just happened in Ferguson, MO. The deep irony is that this man is the figurehead of the most violent, racist, and deadly empire in the history of our planet. What he said was, “There is never any excuse for violence,” but what he meant was, “there is never any excuse for violence from oppressed or occupied people—I, however, can bomb people, torture people, assassinate people without trials, spy on people AND shoot your kids down in the streets.” In my opinion, the burden of “peace” is not on the shoulders of oppressed or occupied people. It is a human right to defend ourselves and our loved ones. Obama also said, “the […] Read More
