memory test: Whatever happened to...'antifa', 'caravans', middle class tax cut'?

Here's just three of the many crisis issues that were slapped in your face within memory by the Orange Buffoon: 'antifa', 'caravans', 'pre-election middle class tax cut'.
Then They DISAPPEARED!

Now I'm sure if you search your memory, you can remind us of the other vanished horrible enemies conjured up to sow bigotry, violence and hatred by the Short-fingering Vulgarian and Party of Treason.
Go ahead- list them here to help record the low points of American rhetoric.

They will reappear as we get closer to the election. Unless there is a succesful impeachment, conviction, and removal from office. At that point President Pence will fake fertile fundamentalist fascism to fluster fools.

Just for kicks, tune into this forum 7, 8 10 years ago and see what people were talking about.

SO MANY arm waving, hysterical posts about some up coming disaster... most never happened. Many of us look pretty silly.

But to Steve's points, this is how the right responds:

antifa - still a big deal, but efforts have been successful

caravans - caravans have become the border crisis - that's what we have after it made it to the border.

middle class tax cut - done and done - don't you watch the news?

That’s nothing. Just yesterday Supreme Leader declared ... wait for it ... a “national emergency” because of a Chinese smartphone maker. I think.

Ya’ll probably we’re aware since reception in your bunkers can be sketchy. Stay ready, preppers!

Conservative Activist Candace Owens Calls Antifa ‘Neo-@#$%&’ Before Speaking at Ivy League Republican Event
Newsweek 4-16-19
The announcement of Candace Owens speaking at the Republican chapter of an Ivy League school stirred up a local antifa group, and a war of words fired across social media over the weekend and leading up to Monday night’s event.

Owens, a black conservative political activist and commentator, was set to speak to the University of Pennsylvania’s College Republicans group on Monday, and she posted a video of her chatting with a handful of young black men while a siren blared in the background at the college. While the siren wailed, little could be heard what was said from anyone in the 1-minute clip.

But before the siren began, someone wearing what looked to be a mask covering their entire face yelled, “Get the f*** out of Philly. Get the f*** out.”

A mask covering the face is one of antifa’s identifying markers. Before that, someone without a mask could be seen yelling “a**hole” to Owens.

Owens posted the video of protests as she was apparently headed to speak Monday evening. With the video, she wrote, “Antifa is here!! Enjoy this video of the neo-@#$%& stalking and harassing me as I try to invite a group of peaceful black students into my event at UPENN.

The Washinton Post Feb 10 2019
According to the Tax Policy Center, 80 percent of filers received a tax cut, and about 5 percent wound up paying more in federal income taxes. The tax cuts showed up in fatter weekly or biweekly paychecks for most Americans, but few people noticed, according to polling.

“There’s a difference between taxes and your refund,” said Joseph Rosenberg, a senior research associate at the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center at the Urban Institute. “People generally got a piece of their tax cut last year gradually in the form of lower withholding on their paychecks.”

LOL that headline and the opening paragraphs literally refute your spin on the WaPo link as if the tax cuts are delivering on their promise of meaningful help to most Americans.

I mean, do you read ANYTHING you post? I can’t wait to click the other 2 links for incredible insights.

Conservatives are such robots when it comes to the catnip of tax cuts. Doesn’t matter how long they last or who they benefit, because whatever the taxes were providing was loooong ago dismissed.

The "tax cut" benefited corporations, and people making over $400k per year.

The majority of middle class people paid more on April 15 this year because withholding was reduced as a way to fool them that the "tax cut" resulted in them paying less taxes. The China tariffs will essentially become a 10%-20% sales tax, which is regressive and costs low income people the most (45 voters).

actually I was referring to this gigantic lie:

"It’s been about two weeks since President Donald Trump said Republicans would deliver a 10 percent tax cut to the middle class before the 2018 midterm elections. Of course it was never going to happen.

and surprise, bernie--It never happened!

Owens was pursuing an undergraduate degree in journalism at the University of Rhode Island but left school after her junior year.

The gunman who committed the Christchurch mosque shootings produced a "manifesto" where he wrote that Owens had "influenced [him] above all".

“And who’s going to pay for it? Mexico!”

“Lock her up!”

“This tax cut will pay for itself and balance the budget!”

“Remember, deficits and the debt only matter when Democrats are in power.”

(The last one was never uttered by a Republican and is the only truism in my list.)

It was a tax cut.

He doubled the standard deductions.

Many people can do their own taxes.

Many people can not deduct their outrageous state income tax from their Federal taxes.

This is causing people to leave California and New York for states like Texas and Florida.
