The Difference Between Human IQ and Galactic Intelligence (GIQ)

We can only glimpse GIQ indirectly, which is why your multidimensional calibration scale is so invaluable as an earthly consciousness tool. Otherwise our perception of higher dimensions and realms cannot be phantomed by our limited 3D physical senses, 4D and even 5D psychic abilities cannot breach. I find it fascinating to entertain all the possibilities normally unavailable to us. Keep up the great work Lada! 🙂

HIGH LEVEL GALACTIC INTELLIGENCE IS DEFINED BY: 

​HIGH CALIBRATION, IMAGINATION, INSPIRATION, POSITIVE YET REALISTIC THINKING, ABILITY TO PERCEIVE THE DEEP TRUTH AND REJECTION OF A LIE, HIGH MINDEDNESS, INTEGRITY, DESIRE TO HELP AND ELEVATE OTHERS, ABILITY AND DESIRE TO BUILD LASTING AND POSITIVE STRUCTURES, ABILITY TO LEARN & PERCEIVE THE WORLD WELL BEYOND 3D…

Galactic Intelligence (GIQ) is my proprietary term and it is a part of my EARTH SHIFT/MULTIDIMENSIONAL SYSTEM. Also, QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS always participate and play a role in my other theories, due to their diagnostic versatility and usefulness.

Warren vs. AOC: 2 Very Different Tax Proposals, 1 Ultimate Goal

As I read elsewhere…
Lizzie Warren took a tax
and gave your wallet 40 whacks
when she saw what she had done
she gave your assets 41!

Just as Americans are gearing up for tax season, the 2020 presidential election race is starting to kick into high gear. Candidates are declaring their intentions to run and discussing their views on the best course for the nation.

Democrats have largely opposed the tax policies that their Republican counterparts have enacted over the past two years, and many are looking at ways to reverse the rising levels of wealth inequality among the U.S. population. Two candidates, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), recently made tax proposals seeking to increase the tax burden for wealthy Americans. Below, you’ll get the details on the two proposals, with an eye toward learning what they have in common and how they differ.

The AOC proposal

The Ocasio-Cortez proposal centers on the income tax. The proposal is relatively simple: take the existing tax brackets and add an eighth one for the highest-earning taxpayers. Instead of the current 37% tax rate applying to all taxable income above the specified top limits — currently between $300,000 and $600,000 depending on filing status — the 37% tax rate would only apply on taxable income up to $10 million. Taxes on the first $10 million of income would therefore remain the same, but for every dollar above the $10 million threshold, a new top marginal tax rate of 70% would apply.

The Ocasio-Cortez proposal would be a simple change to make from an administrative standpoint. No other changes to tax laws would be necessary, and existing rules for determining income, deductions, and credits would remain unchanged. There’s precedent for marginal tax rates of 70% in U.S. history, so the proposal should easily survive any legal challenge on constitutional grounds.

It’s unclear exactly whether the proposal would lead to higher revenue for the federal government. Taxpayers would take steps to adapt to the new tax scheme, seeking to keep their taxable incomes low enough to minimize any income that would be taxed at the 70% rate. According to initial analysis of the proposal from the Tax Foundation, restricting the new 70% bracket to ordinary income would be the best way to raise revenue, and in that case, it estimates $189 billion in net new revenue over the next 10 years. By contrast, if the proposal applied to all income, including capital gains, the Tax Foundation believes that it would actually reduce revenue by $63.5 billion over the same decade. That’s because most investors can time when they sell assets that have risen in value, indefinitely deferring most capital gains liability.

The Warren proposal

The Warren proposal, on the other hand, has nothing to do with the income tax. Instead, it would impose a new tax based on a person’s wealth. Those with assets worth more than $50 million would pay a 2% wealth tax on the amount by which their net worth exceeded the threshold. A higher tax rate of 3% would apply to those whose wealth exceeded $1 billion.

According to proponents of the proposal, the wealth tax could generate extensive amounts of government revenue. Estimates put the impact at $2.75 trillion over 10 years, with about 75,000 households being subject to the tax.

However, the Warren proposal has some additional complications. As a brand new type of tax, the wealth tax would require a new bureaucratic apparatus to collect information on taxpayer wealth as well as collecting and enforcing the tax itself. There’s a debate about whether the wealth tax would be constitutional, as the constitutional amendment that specifically allows taxes on income doesn’t mention taxes on wealth. Yet the federal estate tax has been upheld constitutionally despite its starting point of the value of a decedent’s assets, and taxpayers are intimately familiar with the many personal property and real property taxes that many state and local jurisdictions impose.

Some critics have also noted that the wealth tax could spur a new resurgence in wealthy Americans renouncing their U.S. citizenship in an effort to avoid taxation. Such activity has moderated quite a bit since the early 2010s, when some high-profile investors chose to emigrate permanently to avoid foreign financial reporting requirements and capital-gains taxes on stakes of companies going public. But with billions at stake, many high-net-worth Americans might seek friendlier jurisdictions elsewhere. The Warren proposal does seek to impose a penalty tax on those who’d be subject to the tax and renounce their citizenship. But it’s unclear how far back into the past such a provision could get imposed retroactively, and if wealthy people see the odds of the proposal’s passage increasing, they’d likely take preemptive action to try to escape the tax.

Let the debate continue

Regardless of your own views on these tax proposals, they both aim to extend the debate over wealth inequality and how to address it. There’s no chance that either of these proposals will move forward until 2021 at the earliest, but they do represent aggressive platforms that more moderate lawmakers on both sides of the aisle could use as starting points toward finding eventual compromise positions.

Even Sweden abandoned its wealth tax

And every day more and more socialist candidates throw their hat in the ring. They all want to be the one to take down Donald Trump.

But how do you set yourself apart in such a crowded, and outspoken, field?

Bernie Sanders set the bar in 2016 when he championed Medicare for all and free college. But that’s mundane for the latest crop of candidates.

Senators Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand want a federal guaranteed jobs program to hand out cushy government jobs with benefits to anyone who wants one.

Of course, paying for this program (and the many others floated recently) takes a lot of money. Where will that cash come from? You, of course…

Earlier this month New York Mayor Bill de Blasio gave us a preview of what his platform would look like. He said, “Brothers and sisters, there’s plenty of money in the world… it’s just in the wrong hands.”

70%, progressive income tax? Sure, Kamala Harris is in. Same goes for Julian Castro… after all, he notes, the highest tax rate used to be 90%.

Rest assured, if any of these candidates gets the job, massively higher tax rates are coming.

But none of the proposed taxes would be as damaging as the one proposed by Elizabeth “you didn’t build that” Warren…

Warren wants to skip taxing income and go straight to confiscating WEALTH.

After all, the rich have already amassed a lot of wealth, so you may as well take it…

Warren’s plan is to to tax people 2% per year on NET ASSETS over $50 million (and 3% over $1 billion).

The wealth tax would tax people twice – once on their income and again on the assets they own – even cash in the bank.

(It just so happened that her proposal for a wealth tax came out the same day the most expensive property ever sold in the US was acquired by billionaire Ken Griffin for $238 million…)

The wealth tax is a terrible idea.

Even the most oppressive tax regimes in Europe (like Sweden and Denmark, where the top tax bracket is 63% and capital gains are taxed at 43%) have abandoned the wealth tax.

That’s right, even the most ardent, socialist countries realized that a wealth tax doesn’t work. As a matter of fact, nine countries in Europe abandoned the tax.

Why? Because people were leaving in droves to avoid paying the oppressive levy.

In France, 513 wealthy households left the country every year for 35 years because they were tired of paying a wealth tax – taking an estimated $175 billion of assets with them.

But when the wealth leave, they take more than their money… they also stop investing and creating jobs.

So France also lost 400,000 jobs (adding 2% to unemployment)

Even worse, Sweden raised $500 million with their wealth tax, but lost $166 billion from capital leaving the country.

 The wealth tax simply does not work. In fact, it hurts any country that imposes one, because…

Rich people are excellent at legally avoiding taxes. And they’re also the most mobile.

We’ve seen what happened in Europe with the wealth tax. And the same thing will happen in America if Elizabeth Warren gets her way.

Even if you agree that Swedish-style taxation is good and that a wealth tax would raise revenue for socialist programs, you’re still missing the most important point…

Politicians always have a plan to RAISE money, but there’s never any talk of execution.

Why should we believe this new tax revenue would be any different than the TRILLIONS the government throws down a black hole?

The war on terror hasn’t ended. The Great Society didn’t solve poverty. The war on drugs is a failure… and the government spent $2 billion on a broken Obamacare website and half a million defending Congressmen from sexual assault accusations.

And it gets worse… trillions of dollars have been literally blown up, spent on bombs for the middle-east which, oops, also killed a bunch of kids, brides, and other “collateral damage.”

Point is… the government’s execution is almost always poor… but they believe throwing more money at it will fix the problem.

ANYTHING you do with your money is more productive (not to mention moral) than what the government does with it.

The scariest part of all this isn’t the proposed taxes. It’s the idea behind them…

This is no longer about raising money for socialist programs. It’s about punishing the rich and giving the rest of the people their fair share.

But there’s no wall yet to keep us in. And rest assured… just like in Sweden and France, the rich will flee the US to friendlier tax jurisdictions.

As you know, I think your best option is probably Puerto Rico… and its Acts 20 & 22 tax incentives (which allow for a 4% corporate tax and 0% tax on capital gains and interest).

I’m living on the beach paradise, watching this all play out knowing my capital is safe.

I hope you’ll consider joining me. Also, I just recorded a podcast about my personal experiences in Puerto Rico. You can listen to it here…

How to Recover Lost or Deleted Files?

how to recover lost or deleted files

Have you ever lost your important files, like memories or official documents, accidentally or maliciously?

Adding more… when you even do not have any backup for the same.

Unfortunate, right? We’ve all been there.

Just last week I formatted my computer and later found that I didn’t have any backup for some recently saved important files. It was an absolute nightmare.

We have frequently been asked, “All my files have been encrypted or deleted by malware, what should I do now? Is there any way I can recover them without paying a ransom?”

Well, whether you lose your files due to a cyber-attack, ransomware, wiper malware, or even accidentally, fortunately, some data recovery software better your chances of recovering your deleted or lost files.

There are many data recovery software available in the market that allows you to recover most of your accidentally deleted files as well as data from damaged or formatted hard drives.

However, when we talk about an easy-to-use solution, I find Stellar Data Recovery Premium software as an obvious first choice among file recovery software due to its efficient and straightforward interface, which also makes it an excellent choice for non-technical users.

Stellar Data Recovery Premium edition is available for Windows and macOS operating systems, including support for Window 10 & macOS Mojave, and supports a wide range of formatted drives, including APFS, HFS+, HFS, NTFS, FAT, and exFAT.

The software offers users an effortless way to recover most of their valuable lost or deleted photos, emails, videos or any other type of data back from Hard Drives, SSD, USB Flash Drives, SD Card and others.

How to Use Stellar Data Recovery Software and Its Features

It’s very simple actually. All you have to do is:

1.) Download and install the application and launch it.

2.) Move to ‘Recover Data’ section and select what type of files you want to recover and from where.

3.) The software then quickly scans the selected folder or partitions for all recoverable deleted files.

4.) From there, you can select the files you are looking for and retrieve them to a folder of your choice. That’s it.

Besides file recovery, the Stellar Data Recovery software also supports in-depth scanning feature to help users find hidden or missing partitions on a drive that might have been lost due to corruption or accidental deletion.

We prefer choosing Stellar Data Recovery Premium edition, as it also comes with a useful, specialized feature designed to repair corrupt or damaged videos and photographs, even when they appear distorted, split, blurred, or pixelated.

The “Repair Video” and “Repair Photo” utilities can simultaneously repair multiple video or photo files in easy and simple steps, i.e. just add corrupted files and click repair.

Stellar Data Recovery Premium also comes with “Monitor Drive” feature that has been designed to help regular users to monitor the health status of their hard drives continuously, scan for bad sectors, and it even provides a simple utility to create an exact replica of a failing drive by using the Clone Disk functionality.

You can download the Windows or Mac version of the software from Stellar’s official website and if you find it useful, simply purchase a license key to take full benefit of all the features.

Mexico is starting to look like Venezuela

Mexico is in the midst of a crisis again.

And no, it doesn’t have anything to do with the border wall that caused the US government to be hopelessly deadlocked for more than a month.

Or the economy. Or murders and violence. Or drug trafficking. Or bird flu.

Nope. Mexico is battling an enormous problem with its oil pipelines. In a way that almost sounds ridiculous.

But oil thieves have been drilling holes in Mexico’s extensive network of oil and gas piplelines across the country to steal fuel and sell it on the black market.

State-owned oil company PEMEX found more than 12,500 illegal holes in the pipelines last year.

And these oil thieves went as far as building a 2-mile long pipe themselves to divert oil directly from the refineries.

Selling oil on the secondary market is a highly lucrative business in Mexico. And some farmers who take up a job as lookouts for the thieves can earn more than five times their regular income doing so.

The work is also incredibly dangerous… more than 80 people recently died in a pipeline explosion north of Mexico City when they were trying to siphon off gas.

But Mexico’s new president has decided to do something about this.

And in typical, political brilliance, he ordered the pipelines to be shut down.

So now, instead of transporting oil and gas via pipelines, they’ll ship everything via truck and rail.

There are only a few TINY issues with that solution: it costs up to 14 times more to send fuel via trucks. And more importantly, it takes weeks longer to arrive at the stations.

The result? Severe gasoline shortages.

Across the entire country, including in the biggest cities of Mexico City and Guadalajara, more than 1,000 gas stations have been closed. Many of those still open have limited purchases of gas up to five gallons per person.

And the lines to get to them can reach up to a mile-long.

People have now started hoarding gasoline and re-selling it on the black market.

So much for cracking down on oil theft.

The result is millions of people with no access to gas. They cannot go to work, see their families, or go about their lives as they did just a few days ago.

It’s almost starting to look like Venezuela – the storybook example of what happens to a country gripped by corrupt socialism.

Around 20 years ago, Hugo Chavez came to power and enacted political reforms that granted him and his government enormous power. And he started massive, socialist programs in Venezuela that the country couldn’t afford.

And despite the country’s rich natural resource sector, it went broke.

Now Venezuela has hyperinflation (bringing the average, monthly wage to around $32/month). And people are running out of food, water, medicine and toilet paper. Venezuelans are fleeing the country en masse.

Things couldn’t get much worse in Venezuela. And the people, fed up with this long-running socialist disaster, just elected a new president, Juan Guaidó, who is now battling for power with Maduro. Buyt we’ll leave that story for another day.

The point is, you can look at Venezuela and say “what a bunch of idiots.” Or you can point to Mexico and say the same.

But let’s hold up a mirror to the situation in the US today…

The Treasury Department should soon release its annual financial report for the fiscal year ended September 30 (notice the government gives itself four months to prepare its statements – a full, three months longer than it gives private companies).

I already know what the report will show… that the government’s insolvency has only grown.

Social security is broke, pensions are broke, entitlement spending is eating up a larger and larger portion of tax revenue (while tax revenue is falling).

At the same time, we’ve seen this rise of hardcore, self-avowed socialists in the US… and these folks want to throw more money at this broken system (without any semblance of a plan, at least not one they’ve cared to share with us).

And they’re going to pay for all of this with your tax dollars…

At this point, it’s become passé to call for confiscatory levels of taxation, more regulation and government control and the confiscation of private assets.

You’ve got the governor of California, Gavin Newsom, who wants to centrally plan housing. He wants to tax people and let the government dole out houses.

Then you’ve got de Blasio in NYC who wants to take profits out of the hands of the people that earned it… and put it right into his hands.

Of course these socialist ideas to make the rich pay their “fair share” aren’t going to fix anything.

Placing more money in the hands of the government, instead of the private sector, will only accelerate these fiscal problems.

Remember, we’ve seen how socialist governments fix problems in Venezuela and Mexico. Do you think the result will be any different in the US?
