Netflix Profits $845 Million in 2018 – Paid ZERO Taxes!

Netflix just dropped $10 million to get the rights for a new flick which we reported here in AOC’S ‘KNOCK DOWN THE HOUSE’ RIGHTS FETCHES $10M FROM NETFLIX and made a reported $845 million in profits in 2018 – but paid NO taxes! How can this be? Simple enough – the new tax code has the loopholes they can take advantage of, so for 2018, at least, the only taxes they paid were to countries other than the USA.

This from Breitbart:

Streaming giant Netflix apparently did not pay a penny in federal or state income taxes despite posting profits exceeding $845 million, according to a review of their tax filings.

The online entertainment service reported a profit of more than $845 million in 2018, but also reported a $22 million federal tax rebate, according to the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP), the Daily Mail wrote.

ITEP noted that Netflix is still “exploiting loopholes” in the tax code that helped it gear up to become one of the nation’s leading entertainment companies.

The group also said that the streaming service reported paid $131 million in taxes in 2018, but most of that was paid to foreign governments.

“It is pretty clearly true that Netflix’s cash payment of worldwide income taxes in 2018 was $131 million,” ITEP Senior Fellow Matthew Gardner said. “But that is a worldwide number—the amount Netflix actually paid to national, state and local governments worldwide in 2018. This tells us precisely nothing about the amount Netflix paid to any specific government, including the U.S.”

But Gardner adds that the notes to the report tell a more detailed story.

“The notes to the financial statements have a detailed section on income taxes,” he said. “And what this tells us is that all of the income taxes Netflix paid in 2018 were foreign taxes. Zero federal income taxes, zero state income taxes in the US.”

Netflix seems to be doing just fine, and may not be in need of the massive tax breaks it enjoyed for 2018.

For instance, the streaming service recently shelled out a record ten million dollars to purchase the broadcast rights for a documentary that followed the primary run of self-avowed socialist congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Imagine, if you could, what it would be like to make a ton of money without paying any taxes. Can you? I’m just now in the process of preparing my 2018 tax returns, and even at my insignificant level of income, especially when compared to $845 million, I’m semi-retired and am still going to have to pay about a tenth of what I made just from the little side job I have. How about you?

Easter Sunday’s Sri Lanka Bombings Condemned by Jewish Leaders

A few hours ago we posted a report of a deadly series of simultaneous bombings in Sri Lanka. At the time of that report, the estimated death toll was around 100, but the most recent update we have now says at least 207 are dead, with hundreds more wounded.

From Breitbart:

Arutz Sheva reports: Israeli and Jewish leaders condemned the series of deadly bombings which killed at least 207 people and wounded hundreds more in Sri Lanka Sunday morning.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, “In the name of the citizens of Israel, it expresses deep shock at the murderous attacks against innocent civilians in Sri Lanka, and Israel is ready to assist the authorities in Sri Lanka at this difficult time.”
President of the State Reuven Rivlin condemned the attacks and sent condolences to the families of those killed: “The attacks in Sri Lanka, including against those who were celebrating Easter, are a despicable crime. We are all children of G-d, an attack on one religion is an attack on all of us. Best wishes for the wounded.”

Source: Breitbart News

It’s so moving to hear Prime Minister Netanyahu’s support of the people left behind after this heinous act. There are many on the left, even in our Congress, that are openly anti-semitic and anti-Christian, yet Netanyahu recognizes, acknowledges, and supports the Christian community (much to the liberals’ chagrin, I’m sure).

The sounds of the mainstream media’s reports are being deafened by the noise of crickets, unlike when the mass shooting of Muslims took place in New Zealand. I’m sure they will conveniently remain silent since there won’t be any ammunition in this attack they can use to try to tear down President Trump. The rule of thumb that became the norm decades ago was “if it bleeds, it leads,” but now the only ones the liberal media want to see bleed are Trump supporters and Trump himself.

I remember when it was truly a day of mourning when events of this type were aired, but now the MSM outlets are much more selective. The way they treat crisis events of this type now, the only ones whose blood matters is that of innocent non-Christians. I would not be at all surprised to find that if their private conversations were made public, liberal haters of God would be applauding the deaths of every Christian on the planet.

Early Fake News Victim is the Subject of a New Clint Eastwood Movie

The term Fake News has become a daily flogging point against those in the mainstream media, from the White House press crew to the full gamut of TV, online, and print outlets. President Trump regularly trolls them with verbal backhands, and for a good reason; they’ve become the absolute masters of disinformation and left-leaning propaganda.

Clint Eastwood staunchly supports the president and has taken on a  new project, a movie based on a story called The Ballad Of Richard Jewell, who was a victim of a media smear campaign twenty-odd years ago from which he never recovered.

This from Breitbart:

Oscar-winning director Clint Eastwood is circling The Ballad of Richard Jewell as his next project, the tragic story about an early victim of our fake news media.

Jewell was a 34-year-old security guard at the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, and at first he was rightfully hailed as a hero after he discovered a backpack filled with explosives and risked his own life to evacuate the area. After the bomb went off, dozens were injured and one person was killed. There is no question, though, that many, many more would have died had Jewell not sounded the alarm.

Unfortunately for Jewell, the acclaim didn’t last long. He was overweight, white, and a southerner — the perfect target for our left-wing media… And so, three days later the media reported the F.B.I. was looking at him as a possible suspect. There was zero evidence against Jewell. The entire story was based on a criminal profile of the bomber.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution launched the hate campaign by comparing Jewell to the serial killer behind a horrible series of child murders in Atlanta.

Immediately, the rest of the unquestioning, totally irresponsible, and reckless media went to town on Jewell, portraying him as a pathetic mama’s boy, a fat guy who failed at law enforcement, a clown in a security guard uniform who planted the bomb to make himself a hero.

The article goes on to talk about many more details that I don’t have room for here, but the real bottom line here is that Jewell died young at the age of 42 and never recovered from the media assault on his character and his life.

That kind of abuse is what absolutely infuriates me about the way many of the far-left politicians and media personalities behave. It reminds me of the cliques that become a part of high school life. If you’re in the “in” crowd, nothing matters except adherence to the Group Think. If you dare express your individuality, woe is you, because they will slaughter you verbally, if not physically.

I know many people who have been deceived by the mantra of the Left, and while in many ways they may be friendly people, when it comes to some things (such as politics), they seem to totally lose their minds. It’s almost as if there’s a recorded message in there that certain things trigger, and their minds are made up, so don’t confuse them with the facts.

Richard Jewell was a victim of Fake News attacks long before it became a national buzzword. I believe Clint Eastwood’s movie will shed some light on how despicable and pervasive the problem has become in today’s political climate.

Donna Brazile Says Obama Admin ‘Did Everything They Could’, Defends Obama’s Actions Concerning Russian 2016 Election Meddling

We know from history that Donna Brazile is what I would call a hard-core Democrat. I suppose you could say she was hired to be a contributor at Fox News as somewhat of an “expert” on things Democrat (I won’t use the term “democratic,” because that term completely twists the meaning). In a recent segment, she defended the most radically-left president this country has ever seen, Barack Hussein Obama, against naysayers who are critical of his action, or rather the lack of action, concerning Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

This from Breitbart:

Longtime Democrat operative and newly minted Fox News contributor Donna Brazile defended former President Barack Obama and his administration over Russia meddling in the 2016 presidential election, saying she believes they did “everything they could.”

“I think they did everything they could without sounding all of the alarm bells,” Brazile said on Fox News’s The Daily Briefing.
“If Obama did more on Russian meddling, she said, critics would have accused him of trying to help his former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in her race against then-candidate Donald Trump,” Fox News reported.
“He was in a box,” Brazile said of the former president. 
“Perhaps President Trump is in a box,” she added, before calling for action to prevent future meddling. 
In the Fox report, Brazile claimed it was the Trump campaign that “exploited” information from WikiLeaks, which has suspected ties to Russia.
“Every day, the Trump campaign would get the WikiLeaks information; they would blast it,” Brazile said. “He used it in his daily rallies and daily meetings.”
“Brazile, who served as interim Democratic National Committee chair during the election, backed away from making any determination about whether her party should pursue impeaching the president,” Fox reported.

So now that the Mueller report has been wrapped up, the findings say clearly that neither President Trump nor anyone in his presidential campaign colluded with Russia. The report should have cleared him from any charges of obstruction of justice, but that didn’t happen. Of course, we know that the reason it was left open-ended is to set the Democrats up with something they call a “road map for impeachment.”

Senator Elizabeth Warren is still beating the impeachment drum as she continues to campaign for a shot at the Oval Office, but Brazile has stepped back from that position a bit. She may believe Trump should be removed from the White House, but she isn’t endorsing it nearly so vigorously right now.

She was quoted as saying“I think it’s premature to talk about what the next step is. Before we can move into what I call the impeachment gear, perhaps we should just dive into this report.”

Fox News reported, “Like Brazile, DNC Chair Tom Perez appeared to sidestep impeachment questions on Thursday and said it was unclear whether or not obstruction occurred.”

President Trump’s exoneration via the Mueller report is a stinging rebuke to all those of the far left who howled for over two years about him being unfit for the White House. They keep running the old playbook plan in which they accuse him of all the things of which they are most guilty. Obstructionism? Look no farther than the Democrat party. They would stand against an ice cream social if it came out that Trump suggested it.
