I am an avid listener and love your much needed and transparent reporting and discussion, and am a premium subscriber to Breaking Points. And I spread the word about you to my boomer friends. Collapsing social systems caused by corrupt and degenerative political systems are largely to blame for much dysfunction. Recent interviews with Chris Hedges and Charles Jaco, on Useful Idiots, layout the probability of intensified civil unrest around the next midterms, and a possible Civil War of sorts by 2024 election time. My question then, is how do we convince all of the working class, politics aside (an intentional divider), that the elite and corrupt ruling class should be the target of civil unrest and anger? The push for this knowledge should be done in haste, that’s not very far away. There’s a lot of suffering and tragedy in the hang.
Greetings! Can you talk about the new information coming out regarding the BBB bill and the 87,000 new IRS agents hired to go after auditing taxpayers? People are arguing they will be targeting middle to lower income earners and not targeting the wealthy because the wealthy are harder to go after due to their ability to hire expensive lawyers, etc. As a self employed sole proprietor business owner, this concerns me. Do we lower to middle income earners, mainly self employed, contractors, and gig workers, need to be concerned about getting audited?
Over my time of watching -admittedly not every single episode- of Breaking Points I get the impression that labor news coverage is mostly tilted towards labor unions. In many cases the coverage approaches a level of fawning. Can you explain your approach to labor news and counter my characterization?
I enjoyed your segment on the fed informants. With the report being 2011-2014 this would diver the Boston marathon bombing. Bejng from Boston this is of interest and seems from people I know in law enforcement and media, plus some great reporting from Michelle McPhee it seems like the older brother was an informant and may have been involved in a murder prior to bombing. Have you ever seen this or was it referenced in the report?
