“Are you satisfied with your care?” If you’d say “no” regarding the current tax system, you’re not alone.
Baymax aside, a new America First Policies poll reports that 82% of the 1,200 registered voters surveyed “think tax reform needs to pass.” As a knee jerk reaction, one could take this as wonderful news! We all know the modern tax model is unfair and we want to see it restructured. The problem is how Americans want to see such reform implemented, and this survey alone doesn’t tell us as much as it might seem.
Here’s what we know, according to Axios:
- 61% of Democrats, 66% of Independents, and 75% of Republicans are unhappy with the current tax system
- 83% of those polled want a “simpler and fairer” tax system and one that provides relief for families with child and dependent care expenses
- 84% want the tax code to be modernized “to encourage corporations to stay in America”
- 76% want a system that will increase wages and “create nearly 2 million full-time jobs” in the U.S.
These are all worthy goals; we want a simpler and fairer tax code, we want booming business in America, and we want more jobs. But how? Words like “fair” mean very different things on opposite sides of the aisle — I might think “flat tax,” but the Left would say “tax the rich.”
Just as an example, here’s a simple, “fair” tax plan according to the Left: 90% marginal income tax for the top 1%, 50% marginal income tax for the top 1-30%, no income tax for the bottom 70%, 100% inheritance tax, 60% corporate tax, no exempt status for right-wing churches, no loopholes.
Sadly, these aren’t exaggerations. According to Bernie Sanders, Cenk Uygar of The Young Turks, and Huffington Post, a 90% tax on the top bracket wouldn’t be too high. In fact, Cenk claims America’s former 91% tax contributed to the booming economy of the 1950s, although that’s been debunked by The Blaze as well as Ben Shapiro at Politicon in July.
Others argue in favor of collecting a 100% inheritance tax to fund Medicare-for-all. One writer concludes, “I’m hesitant to impose such a tax, even though on principle I think it’s a fine idea.”
Interestingly, despite most Americans’ dissatisfaction with the current tax system more generally, a smaller majority (53% according to Pew Research) feel they personally pay “about the right amount” of taxes, with around 40% saying their rate is too high, both among general voters and millennials.
So how can 82% of Americans want tax reform while 53% are okay with their own tax rate? As usual, this boils down to the top brackets. According to another Pew poll, 82% feel that “some corporations don’t pay their fair share,” and 79% believe “some wealthy people don’t pay their fair share.”
So while the average American is okay with his own tax cut, he’s always looking at somebody else to foot the bill. And when 82% think the system needs reforming, remember the same ratio’s ideal reform includes gutting the prosperous. And if we take the word of famed economists Henry Hazlitt, Milton Friedman, and Thomas Sowell, as well as newly named “debate thug” Ben Shapiro, not only is piling taxes on the wealthy morally wrong, it also makes zero economic sense.

Big Pharma’s Five Major Minions that Everyone, Vaxxed or Unvaxxed, Must Oppose
This is not an “anti-vaxxer” article, per se. It’s a call for everyone to wake up to the nefarious motives behind vaccine mandates, booster shots, and condemnation of freedom.
The worst kept secret in world history SHOULD be that the unquenchable push for universal vaccinations against Covid-19 has little if anything to do with healthcare and everything to do with Big Pharma’s influence over the narrative. Unfortunately, that secret has stayed firmly hidden from the vast majority of people because of the five major minions working on behalf of Big Pharma.
What’s even worse is the fact that Big Pharma’s greed is merely a smokescreen to hide an even darker secret. We’ll tackle that later. First, let’s look at the public-facing ringleaders behind the vaccine push, namely Big Pharma. But before we get into their five major minions, it’s important to understand one thing. This is NOT just an article that speaks to the unvaccinated. Even those who believe in the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines must be made aware of agenda that’s at play.
Let’s start with some facts. The unvaccinated do NOT spread Covid-19 more rampantly than the vaccinated. Even Anthony Fauci acknowledged the viral load present in vaccinated people is just as high as in the unvaccinated. This fact alone should demolish the vaccine mandates as it demonstrates they have absolutely no effect on the spread of the disease. But wait! There’s definitely more.
This unhinged push to vaccinate everyone defies science. Those with natural immunity may actually have their stronger defenses against Covid-19 hampered by the introduction of the injections which fool the body into creating less-effective antibodies. Moreover, the push to vaccinate young people is completely bonkers. The recovery rate for those under the age of 20 is astronomical. Children neither contract, spread, nor succumb to Covid-19 in a statistically meaningful way. What they DO succumb to more often than Covid-19 are the adverse reactions to the vaccines, particularly boys.
All of this is known and accepted by the medical community, yet most Americans are still following the vaccinate-everybody script. It requires pure cognitive dissonance and an overabundant need for confirmation bias to make doctors and scientists willingly go along with the program. Yet, here we are and that should tell you something.
Before I get to the five major minions of of Big Pharma, I must make the plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Who does Big Pharma control? It starts with the obvious people, the ones who most Americans believe are actually behind this push. Our governments at all levels as well as governments around the world are not working with Big Pharma. They are working for Big Pharma. Some are proactive as direct recipients of cash. Others may oppose Big Pharma in spirit but would never speak out because they know anyone who does has no future in DC.
This may come as a shock to some, but it’s Big Pharma that drives the narrative and sets the agenda for the “experts” at the CDC, FDA, WHO, NIH, NIAID, and even non-medical government organizations.
Most believe it’s the other way around. They think that Big Pharma is beholden to the FDA for approval, but that’s not exactly the case. They need approval for a majority of their projects, but when it comes to the important ones such as the Covid injections, Big Pharma is calling the shots. They have the right people in the right places to push their machinations forward.
That’s not to say that everyone at the FDA is in on it. Big Pharma only needs a handful of friendlies planted in leadership in order to have their big wishes met. We have seen people quitting the FDA in recent weeks for this very reason. The same can be said about the other three- and five-letter agencies. Too many people in leadership have been bribed, bullied, or blackmailed into becoming occasional shills for the various Big Pharma corporations. Some have even been directly planted by Big Pharma. That’s the politics of healthcare and science that drives such things as Covid-19 “vaccines.”
