Thanks Half Crazy... I didn't realize that.

The IRS is very clear about whether you can deduct political campaign contributions from your Federal income taxes: The answer is a stone cold NO. But when it comes to individual states, that’s not the whole story.

While no state lets you deduct political contributions, four of them—Arkansas, Ohio, Oregon, and Virginia—actually do something better: They offer a tax credit for part or all of your contribution, up to a certain amount.

The idea behind the credit is to encourage a wider range of of people to participate in the political donation process, which is largely driven by affluent, conservative Americans, according to the Poverty Action Lab.

The credits, which previously were also offered in Arizona and Minnesota, have been controversial. In Oregon, for example, critics have complained that they cost the state around $7 million in the last election cycle and encourage PACs to solicit donations with come-ons promising that “your gift may cost you nothing.”

But for now, at least, here’s how to take advantage of the credit if you live in one of these states.

Arkansas

“The Natural State” grants tax credits for state—not federal—campaign contributions of up to $50 for an individual ($100 for a couple), and it can be spread over multiple candidates, political action committees approved by Arkansas, and parties.

Ohio

Like Arkansas, Ohio only allows for contributions to candidates in statewide elections. There is no disqualifying income limit, so the credit is available to anyone who wants a free $50 to donate to someone running for the following offices: governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, state auditor, treasurer, attorney general, member of the state board of education, justice of the supreme court, or member of the general assembly. Married couples filing jointly can claim a $100 credit.

 

Oregon

If you make less than $200,000 jointly, or $100,000 individually, you can claim a tax credit of $100 and $50, respectively. The state is very open about where you can donate: Political action committees and individual candidates in local, state, and federal elections are all fair game, as long as they’re on a ballot in the state during that tax year.

Virginia

Old Dominion’s rules apply to all income brackets. According to the Virginia Tax Schedule CR Instructions, the commonwealth will give you a tax credit of 50% of your contribution to a candidate running for state or local office only, with a limit of $25 for individuals, $50 for joint filers.

Happy Thanksgiving DV! I have a feeling we all have a lot to be thankful for outside of material possessions. Let’s focus on those this Thanksgiving. In the meantime I’ll just leave this right here. Totally politically incorrect, completely historically inaccurate, and while I don’t usually like SNL anymore, they brought back some old cast and it made me chuckle 

 

 

 

 

 

Great ....Thanks for sharing

Quote from Adam Montana:

 

Happy Wednesday DinarVets!

 

1. Michael Bloomberg officially entered the race for 2020 US President. We've all seen people blow a ton of money, and he can't/won't win (Vegas odds are +2500 currently), so I wonder if there's an ulterior motive here. Anyone have any thoughts on that?

End Quote

 

Well since you asked:

This will take a while. When I was a kid growing up, the Congress was almost always in the hands of the Democrats. Yet it was a government that was considered "right-of-center." These were the John F. Kennedy kind of "ask not what your country can do for you" Democrats. Somewhere along the way, the Democrats skewed way left. But there is the centrist "old guard" still around. And while Joe Biden is still left-of-center, he's not a way left kind of guy that seems to be the desire of the current Democrat Party.

I think that there are two issues going on, currently. Joe Biden is damaged goods and the DNC wants him to go away. Sleepy-Joe came out last spring and told the world how he got the Ukrainian Government to back off investigating the company his son was associated with. He was pretty blatant about it. I think that the DNC started all this "Impeach Trump" stuff as a way to kill two birds with one stone. Take out Joe Biden, who is wildly successful with his centrist, moderate campaign, and blame it Donald Trump accusing him of the very things Joe Biden admitted to doing. Don't believe me? Ask Bernie what the Democrat Party did to him in 2016. Joe is just not left enough.

So now what are we going to do? As I said, Biden is damaged goods. Well the "Old Guard" centrist Democrats need a viable candidate who is not so left as Bernie and Pocahontas er, Elizabeth. And now we have Mikey.

My two cents.

How the relationship between Trump and Bloomberg went into a tailspin

Jan. 31, 2019 at 2:53 p.m. EST

NEW YORK — On an autumn day in 2013, New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg traveled to the Bronx to hail the transformation of a massive garbage dump into a world-class golf course. Donald Trump stood nearby, beaming as Bloomberg said the course would be operated by “the great Trump Organization.”

“If there is anybody who has changed this city, it is Donald Trump,” Bloomberg said. “He really has done an amazing thing, and this is another part of it.”

Trump turned to Bloomberg, gushing: “You have been a great mayor. You really have. I mean, this guy is fantastic.”

For more than a decade, the two New York billionaires appeared together at charity golf events, ribbon cuttings and even on Trump’s reality television shows, a relationship of political and business convenience if not genuine friendship.

AD
 

 

The alliance imploded the moment Trump launched his bid for the White House in 2015, exposing raw differences of policy and personality that have become only more stark as President Trump has carried out a series of measures that are politically anathema to Bloomberg, such as withdrawing from a deal to combat global warming.

Trump, in an interview this week with The Washington Post, said, “I really liked Michael and I think he liked me, but it went really strangely haywire once I ran for office.” He said Bloomberg did not care about his political views when he was merely a New York City developer, but now “he probably doesn’t like my policies. I’m for guns, he’s against guns . . . A developer is a lot different than as a candidate.”

Trump used the golf course deal as a cudgel against Bloomberg, saying during the campaign the city was unable to get the course finished until he took it over — a claim that infuriated Bloomberg’s associates, who said the city did most of the work.

AD
 

Now Bloomberg’s dark view of Trump’s performance as president may be the deciding factor in whether the former mayor decides to run for the White House. Bloomberg has expressed doubt that a “short, Jewish, divorced billionaire” such as himself could be elected president. Trump’s performance, however, has led him to seriously consider using part of his fortune to seek the Democratic nomination.

Bloomberg, in a brief interview this week during a visit to the first-primary state of New Hampshire, said, “My objection to Donald Trump is the way he’s filling his current role, in terms of representing the country, in terms of representing the public. There’s an attitude, and a style, and lack of civility that I think is bad for the country, and I find offensive.”

On the surface, Bloomberg and Trump have much in common: Both have named their businesses after themselves; both have become billionaires in New York City; both unexpectedly won their respective political offices; both have switched their party registrations repeatedly.

AD
 

But they come from very different backgrounds. Bloomberg was raised in working-class Massachusetts while Trump benefited from his father’s fortune. Bloomberg made his fortune selling Wall Street-related data, and he veered left on a variety of issues, including the environment and gun control, as he rose in New York City politics. Trump, who once was a classically liberal New Yorker, moved right as he sought a national audience, recasting himself as a conservative Republican. Bloomberg calls himself a nonpartisan manager and engineer who delegates authority; Trump is a defiantly partisan president who says he, alone, can fix things.

 

While both are among the wealthiest Americans, Bloomberg is much richer. Bloomberg ranks tenth on the Forbes 400 list of wealthiest Americans, with $52 billion, compared with Trump, ranked 259th with $3.1 billion.

Rep. Peter T. King, a New York Republican who was reelected last year with fundraising help from Bloomberg even though he continues to support Trump, said the battle of billionaires has gotten deeply personal.

AD
 

“I would think, without getting into psychoanalysis, that one New York billionaire can think he is better than another New York billionaire,” King said. “I can see Mike resenting the fact he is not getting the same recognition Donald Trump gets. Each guy thinks he is smarter than the other.”

The Rev. Al Sharpton, who has spent many hours with both men, said Trump’s self-image relies greatly on his coming from Queens and never feeling accepted by the Manhattan elite, even after building Trump Tower.

Trump “is an outsider, and the guys like Bloomberg, in style and substance, are the people he felt always rejected him, which would unnerve him if [Bloomberg] ran against him,” Sharpton said. If the two face each other, he said, “I’d want a ringside seat.”

 

Billionaire alliance

The two did not know each other until Bloomberg ran for mayor in 2001 as a Republican. Trump focused on the Democratic primary, first supporting Fernando Ferrer, who lost the primary to Mark Green. Trump then contributed $4,500 to Green during the general election race against Bloomberg, whose campaign was self-funded. Once Bloomberg was elected, Trump said, he became an avid supporter.

For years, Trump had lavished attention on New York City mayors, whose support he needed for real estate projects. By the time Bloomberg was elected, however, Trump had mostly switched from developing new properties in New York City to selling his brand around the world and starring in his reality television show.

In October 2004, Trump invited Bloomberg to appear on “The Apprentice,” and the mayor met contestants at the official mayoral residence, Gracie Mansion. Trump hyped the appearance, telling contestants they would be meeting a “great leader.”

AD
 

Four years later, Bloomberg appeared on “The Celebrity Apprentice” in an episode centered on which stars could sell the most hot dogs on the streets of New York City. Bloomberg was shown walking down a busy Manhattan street with Trump as the two prepared to inspect the work of contestants such as Gene Simmons of the rock band Kiss and “Apprentice” star Omarosa Manigault Newman.

While Trump beamed and dramatic music played, Bloomberg delivered a series of corny lines, such as: “As the No. 1 ‘Frank-o-phile’ in the city, I’m supposed to see whether you guys can cut the mustard.”

Manigault Newman, who went on to work in the office of public liaison in the Trump White House, said in an interview that the pair’s relationship was a case study in how they used each other in “symbiotic exploitation.”

AD
 

“Doing official business, Bloomberg came across uptight. In our episode, I remember he came across as down to earth and relatable,” she said. As for Trump, “It gave him quite a bit of legitimacy, to flex his connections and his access to powerful people.”

 

During the filming, Bloomberg and Trump rode the subway together. As Bloomberg recalled the incident last week, Trump “said he took the subway all the time, but I did note he didn’t know which end of the MetroCard to put in.”

Trump, asked about the ride, said Bloomberg’s description was untrue. He said the subway was opened for dozens of crew, “and I never had a MetroCard when I rode the subway with him.”

 

After two terms as mayor, Bloomberg was prohibited under the law from seeking a third. The business community rallied around the idea of overturning the term limit, and Trump became a leading backer. The term limit was dropped, and Bloomberg won reelection. That, in turn, led to the high point of the Trump-Bloomberg relationship.

AD

Bloomberg had promised he would oversee the transformation of a trash dump in the Bronx into a world-class golf course. The project had faltered for decades because of the high cost of cleaning up the landfill and meeting environmental rules. The Bloomberg administration hoped a developer such as Trump would agree to pay for the cleanup and build the course, but no one bid.

Eager to keep his campaign promise, Bloomberg eventually decided city taxpayers would pay the bill. The project had started under a prior mayor and reached $164 million to build the course, and millions more for environmental measures, according to the city-run Independent Budget Office. The Bloomberg administration then sent out bids for a company to finish the course by planting seed and some other measures and constructing a clubhouse.

Trump said Bloomberg asked him to get involved “because he was getting killed on this project. He had it for 12 years. I said, ‘Michael, I’m going to make you look good.’ ” As Trump told the story, Bloomberg was grateful for the golf course work and turned against him only after both men pondered running for the presidency.

AD

Trump’s son, Eric, said in an interview that he participated in two conversations about the project that included his father and Bloomberg, one by phone and a second in person.

“I remember this conversation vividly,” Eric Trump said. “Mike called up and said [to Donald Trump], ‘We need your help because this is an embarrassment to the city of New York and my administration. You are the only person who can do it.’ We went in there and we did the job.” Trump was one of three bidders and won the contract in 2013. Eric Trump said his father and Bloomberg “were friends a lot closer aligned than people would think.”

Bloomberg declined to respond or to discuss the golf course project, but his spokesman, Howard Wolfson, said: “Unsurprisingly, given their well documented relationship with the truth, the Trumps are lying. None of these conversations occurred.” Told of this denial, Eric Trump stood by his comments.

A rivalry begins

By April 2015, as Trump began seriously considering a presidential bid, the relationship turned rivalrous.

Trump’s daughter Ivanka wrote on her blog that her father “acquired this amazing redevelopment project after it had floundered around with the City of New York for more than two decades. Shortly after he was announced as the developer, my father went out to the construction site, where he saw a bunch of guys literally moving sand from one end of the course to the other. He essentially looked at them and said, ‘You guys have made a lot of money pushing sand around for the last 20 years, but that stops with me. It’s time to get this done.’ And they did.”

Adrian Benepe, Bloomberg’s former parks commissioner, said such descriptions exaggerated Trump’s role. “That is when the lying began, that Trump had come in to bail out the incompetent city. Despite the myth, Trump did not build that golf course. The city built it, the city did all the heavy lifting, dealt with all the environmental issues.”

Ivanka Trump deferred to her father’s comments, a spokeswoman said. Jack Nicklaus, who designed the course before Trump took over and is now a Trump supporter, said in an interview, “We might have been there another 30 years if Donald Trump hadn’t been there.” After the city built the public course, the Trump Organization made the improvements and built a clubhouse that cost $10 million. Under the contract, Trump collects course and concession fees. The course is open to the public. at an 18-hole weekend fee of $185.

Three months after Ivanka Trump’s blog entry, Donald Trump launched his bid for the presidency, and he frequently cited completing the golf course as an example of his ability to get things done. In a January 2016 appearance on CNN, for example, Trump said, “I took it over for one year, knocked it up, and now it’s a tremendous success. Michael asked me if I’d get involved with it, and I’m the one that got it done, and did a great job.”

Bloomberg decided two months later not to seek the presidency, even as he said Trump ran “the most divisive and demagogic presidential campaign I can remember, preying on people’s prejudices and fears.” He then attacked Trump at the Democratic National Convention, calling him a “risky, reckless and radical choice.” Trump, who said he was stunned by Bloomberg’s words, tweeted in response: “ ‘Little’ Michael Bloomberg, who never had the guts to run for president, knows nothing about me. His last term as Mayor was a disaster!”

Shortly after he won the presidency, Trump talked on the phone with Bloomberg about how to run the White House but he said he did not offer a job. Bloomberg told The Post last year that he told the president-elect: “You could have a good presidency if you get good people and you depend on them, and you delegate authority to go along with responsibility.” Bloomberg said that is “what he did not do.”

Due to the sudden difference in exchange value as implemented by the Central Bank of Iraq on (December 4, 2019), all values in the Budget shall be adjusted 3 zeros to the left. In other words, an allocation of 1,000,000 Iraqi Dinar is now adjusted to 1,000 Iraqi Dinar.

It was an example.  Not an article. He was simply saying that paragraph such as that one would all it would take to adjust the rate.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Thanks Adam for your update. Since you ask on Bloomberg, that subversive is already spending money on TV ads. We are countering by calling local TV stations trying to put pressure on them not to accept these blood money ads from this subversive New York yankee! We make our money here and DemoRat politics is not what we want from our local channels! I urge everyone to start the fight with your local stations and papers to let them know their support of the subversive DemoRat party will be met with boycotting their advertisers. This is not a sit on the sidelines fight! We must defeat this subversive DemoRat party, for the sake of the US constitution and the Bill of Rights! The DemoRats hate these two things and are set to destroy them!! Trump 2020!! JMHO 🤠

For example, the exchange rate is currently 1190:1 (IQD:USD). If they move the exchange rate closer to $1, they might move the decimal 3 places to the left making 1.19 IQD = $1 USD. Adjusting the budget is mind blowingly simple - a one paragraph amendment reads as follows:

      Good morning all, and Happy Wednesday!
       
      I'm a bit slammed with non-dinar related work, so just a short update today. I do have more, but it should hold till the weekend.
       
      DJIA is solid over 29,000.
       
      BTC is on a strong hold over $10,000.
       
      A sincereto everyone for the awesome work in this thread:
       
       
      If you had any questions about the current progress of Allawi, just check the last page or two on that thread! (Currently page 5 and 6, it might be well past that by the time you see this!)
       
      You may have noticed a lack of chatter about "protesters" over the last week or two... that's just one of the topics that has quietly just left the news. Of course we don't see anyone making a big deal out of positive news, because that's not the kind of stuff that sells newspapers.
       
      But it IS the kind of thing we want to see, because it's what is going to lead us to a higher value on the Dinar.
       
      Allawi is building a foundation, the pieces are falling into place, and I have nothing negative to report.
       
      I am very interested in seeing a continuation of this one:
       
       
       
      I think that all makes for a pretty fantastic Wednesday update, even if it is short! 
       
       
       
      I've got some work to get done, y'all be good, happy, and keep up the good work...
       
      Gooooo RRRVVVV!!!!!

      Happy Wednesday everyone!
       
      Just dropping a note to say I am here, just swamped today with some work that's unrelated to Dinar.
       
      Rather than give 20%, I'm going to postpone until later this week. 
       
      This one has some potential... more on that when I return.
       
       
      Have a fantastic day, everyone! Life is good, don't forget to smell the roses and dance in the rain. Or snow, if that's what you have outside. You get my point.

      Good morning good morning!!!
       
      We are a couple days past the presentation of the new (possibly interim) Prime Minister, and my sentiments thus far can be summarized in a word:
       
      HAPPY.
       
      The abbreviated backstory goes like this:
       
      Iraq thrown into dark ages, currency plummets in value. A decade of work later, Iraq is fairly stable and they still have enough black gold to fill a gazillion olympic pools. Corruption remains a problem, citizens tire of the charades, demand change. November 2019, former PM Mahdi resigns.  Several unsuitable candidates were presented, we hung in limbo.  
      The new PM was selected late last week. He's had less than a full week to screw it up, and he has not. 
       
      Seriously - 5 days is plenty of time to drive the bus right off a cliff, and he has not.
       
      In fact, he's doing things right. One great example of what's going on in the background - the stuff we don't see on the news - is this thread, where Iran is obviously making a last ditch effort to hold ground. 
       
      Does anyone think Iran is going to win this ultimatum? I do not. Especially not with Allawi at the helm, who is presumably approved by greater powers than Iran. This is precisely why Iran is making their last ditch, desperate attempt to gain footing... and it looks like a failed attempt from the start.
       
      If Iran has any success whatsoever in this attempt, we are going to see it immediately. I can't wait to see this Iranian attempt fall on it's face!
       
      Another example? The Budget, which was approved-but-held-and-now-this (back on track!).
       
      I'll be candid - Tawfik Allawi was not my "top pick" for the new PM. But, current PM Allawi does have a very solid history of butting heads with Maliki, and that's about as solid of an endorsement as anyone should need.
       
      We are standing by. I'm still expecting some significant reports to come of this development, and while we are watching the news feeds for it to come out - here's a discount on VIP.
       
      You WANT to be in VIP because when Iraq changes the value of their currency and we all go cash in - VIP here at DinarVets is going to put more cash in your pocket, help you protect those gains, and much much more.
       
      Join us here, and use the code "newPM" to get a 25% discount.
       
       
      I'm going to end this post here, but I'm not going far! GOOOOOO RRRRRRVVVVVV!!!!!

      Howdy DinarVets! Superbowl Sunday is upon us, but that's not why I'm here right now.
       
      I mentioned in this week's update that we were expecting a Prime Minister to be named
      towards the end of this week.
       
      Those of you who know me are well aware that I don't give predictions very often... my
      sources were strong enough on this one that I went against the usual grain and put it out there.
       
      Sure enough... as of yesterday, Iraq has a new Prime Minister, and the name is Allawi. I
      also weighed in that I believed it would be one of the Allawis! That's a solid 2 for 2 on
      recent predictions, thank you very much!
       
      I should quit while I'm ahead, but what fun is that?! I've got one more in me.
       

       
      First, who is this guy that is now Prime Minister of Iraq?
       
      From Wikipedia:
       
       
      Here's what I really like about this guy:
       
      "...both times he resigned from his position in protest against al-Maliki..."
       
      There is talk about protests continuing due to his appointment, but I'm leaning
      towards "fake news" on that one. It would not surprise me at all to learn that the
      "protests" being referenced are paid for by Iranian or Malikian sources. 
       
      I would normally avoid quoting anything published on the NYT, but there is truth to this:
       
       
      To be sure we are considering both sides of this new situation, here's another article:
       
      Here's what I'll note about that article:
       
      1. "Hundreds" of protesters - not thousands.
      2. The protesters, as stated in that article, don't have a person that they would accept.
      They are just protesting to protest at this point.
       
      So, what about my prediction? The one that could get me the coveted Turkey, the
      Hat Trick, the Trifecta?
       
      If this new PM Allawi shows immediate action on two items, we are on the fastest track
      to an RV we could hope for. Those things are simple:
       
      1. Something, anything, to immediately show that he is "anti-Iran". 
       
      and
       
      2. Something, anything, to immediately show that he is anti-status-quo and anti-Maliki.
       
      These things are easy! And they can be accomplished this week. If he does these things,
      the protests will subside, and we are fast tracking.
       
      THIS WEEK, my friends! We are either going to see an RV or we are going to have a very
      solid picture of the actual "when", and I see it happening quick.
       
      I don't care if it's a penny, a dime, a dollar, or a full RI - we're looking at some good stuff.

      Good afternoon and Happy Wednesday!
       
      What's going on in DinarLand? That's what we ask every week, and thanks to the amazing newshounds here at DinarVets we're able to keep up on the happenings.
       
      HUGE to all of our tireless members who filter and sift and read and post it all here!
       
      I have my personal contacts that give me a constant feed of information, but you don't need special contacts to stay up to date. The news feeds here on this site have been an incredible resource for many tens of thousands of people, and I personally want to take a minute and thank everyone here that contributes.
       
      So - THANKS! Shout out to the current top 4 on the leaderboard: @yota691, @DinarThug, @Butifldrm, and @Pitcher
       
      The big news going on right now in Iraq is the impending selection of a Prime Minister. Over the years, we have witnessed a series of Iraqi politicians that were really Iranian puppets - influenced, paid, bribed, or otherwise, but they were not looking out for Iraq. 
       
      As of last October, there has been a major shift in Iraq. The people protested, rioted, and demanded change. The face of their demands was simply to improve their lives, but the heart of the matter comes down to removing the Iranian factors. This is the main reason there is no Prime Minister in the place of Mahdi already. There were attempts to insert yet another Iranian talking head in the position, and then more attempts, but between the Iraqi's recent protests, and a bit of US and other outside influences, the Iranian factor is being whittled down.
       
      The barriers that have kept an RV from happening are being eroded, and quickly.
       
      I know, that's not what is in the headlines. It's not on the front pages of any MSM publication, and it's not spelled out that simply in most cases - but that's what is really going on.
       
      Where we are today, then, is on the cusp of some serious change. We are staring at the future, shaping itself via badly translated articles and sometimes dodgy guru explanations... but we are there, just the same.
       
      Looking back at how many times we've seen great news in Iraq and comparing that to the number of times we've seen an RV come of it tends to make some people negative. I would caution against too much optimism, but I will also caution against the opposite. The facts are right in front of us - we have never seen this kind of change, and it's happening on top of everything else that Iraq has accomplished.
       
      Will we see a new Prime Minister this week? Possibly yes! There may be one final attempt to slip in someone with Iranian backing, but that will fall on it's face, and my prediction is that the people are going to get what they want. As that happens, Iran's grip on Iraq is going to be severely weakened, and things are going to happen.
       
      Fast.
       
      I don't have an RV date to give you. But I do believe that towards the end of this week, we're going to have a reasonable amount of information to use in making such a prediction.
       
      And I also think it's going to be extremely favorable.
       
      Time will tell if I'm right... and there are some of you who are going to reap some amazing benefits. 
       
      See you in VIP
