BREAKING: Mike Rowe Sends MAJOR Warning To AOC and Democrats…

(Slay News) – “Dirty Jobs” host Mike Rowe has issued a warning to celebrity Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her “woke” allies in the Democratic Party about the “consequences” of their radical climate agenda.

Rowe blasted the Democrats’ misguided energy policies during an appearance on Brian Kilmeade’s radio show.

“If you make fossil fuels the enemy, then you are going to reap a whirlwind of unintended consequences really, really quickly,” Rowe told Kilmeade.

“I get that a lot of people are convinced the end of days is coming 12, 15, 20 years down the road.

“I get that, but there’s no proportionality and there’s no context.

“And when you talk about flipping a switch and getting rid of oil and natural gas and even coal, for that matter, you would hasten that Armageddon to an exponential factor.

“China and India alone are building a coal plant every week for the next 30 years.

“That’s not going to change,” he asserted.

“There are 30 billion people right now still burning wood and dung.

“If you want to bring them into the modern world, you’re not going to do it with wind.

“You’re not going to do it with solar. You’re not going to do it with hydro.

“You might do it with nuclear, but we’ve got real problems with that.

“You have to do it responsibly, and you have to deal with fossil fuels responsibly.

“But you can’t just go no, fossil fuels are the enemy, period, it’s over.

“That will hurt on every imaginable level, in my view.

Alex Epstein wrote a great book. It’s called ‘Fossil Future.’

“And in it, he just says, look, let’s have the conversation, but let’s at least understand that fossil fuels have saved more lives over the last hundred years than anybody is really thinking about, it’s fossil fuels that have protected us from the climate, and in so many ways.

“But it’s hard to say that out loud today without it coming back over the net with so much topspin that somebody’s going to call you a denier, and then the conversation ends,” he said.

As Slay News reported earlier, Rowe also took a swipe at Democrat President Joe Biden on “Fox and Friends.”

He blasted the latest massive spending bill that was pushed through by Biden and the Democrats.

“Now, if the Inflation Reduction Act truly reduces inflation, then we can start with a conversation about the nuts and bolts of the bill.

“But we’ve come to the point where nothing actually means what it says.

“And that gets us into an emperor’s new clothes kind of mentality, where it’s not one kid in the crowd going, ‘Hey, that guy’s naked,’ it’s the whole country going, ‘Wait. Again with this? Again with the name of a thing that doesn’t seem to reflect the thing?’

“And so we got to peel back the layers and we have to look at it.

“And then we have to have the conversation: how does this impact the middle class? What the heck do I know?

“If it lives up to its name, it’ll impact them in a positive way,” he said.

“If it doesn’t, it’s another pie in the face.”

JUST IN: CNN Just FIRED Its Top Host

(Slay News) – CNN is canceling its Sunday media affairs show “Reliable Sources” and host Brian Stelter is departing the network, according to reports.

Stelter reportedly confirmed his departure from CNN to NPR.

In a statement to NPR, Stelter says he’s grateful for the show and how his team’s examination of “the media, truth and the stories that shape our world.”

“It was a rare privilege to lead a weekly show focused on the press at a time when it has never been more consequential,” Stelter said.

“Stelter came to CNN from the New York Times as the nation’s top media reporter,” Amy Entelis, CNN’s executive vice president for talent and content development.

“He departs CNN an impeccable broadcaster.

“We are proud of what Brian and his team accomplished over the years, and we’re confident their impact and influence will long outlive the show.”

According to NPR:

Reliable Sources is the longest-running show on CNN; Stelter has hosted it for the past nine years and celebrated its 30th anniversary in March.

CNN chief Chris Licht informed Stelter of the decision yesterday.

Licht has been making cuts throughout the network since taking the helm as part of Warner Bros. Discovery’s takeover of the old Time Warner company.

Stelter, who often touted the show’s ratings on Twitter, was among those CNN hosts targeted for frequent criticism from conservatives for his coverage of the media in the Trump years.

Among those publicly joining in on the broader criticism of CNN as having become politicized was the investor John Malone, a major financial stakeholder of the new WarnerDiscovery conglomerate.

In an episode on February, Stelter cited Malone more than a dozen times in coverage of the Discovery deal for CNN and its sister properties, expressing some concern about the investor’s influence.

John Malone is a billionaire Trump donor who promised changes to CNN when his company bought a controlling stake.

From The Daily Mail:

A source told ‘Chris is really focused on CNN turning a corner. He actually listens to what people want and isn’t driven by ego.

‘He’s moving CNN back to the center, he abolished the ridiculous breaking news cut ins and graphics that drove everyone crazy and he knows that no one will shed a tear re Toobin’s departure, especially the women of CNN.’

A cable news veteran, who wishes not to be named, spoke of the close relationship between Stelter and Zucker.

‘Brian Stelter should be calling his agent to start looking for another job,’ they said.

‘He’s been Jeff Zucker’s water boy for years and no one believes he didn’t know about all of this.’

Gollust and Zucker lived in the same apartment building with their respective families, have worked together at NBC and then CNN for more than 20 years, and had what some called an ‘uncomfortably cozy’ rapport.

SHOCK REPORT: 44% Of Pregnant Women Suffered ‘Spontaneous Abortions’ During Trials

(Slay News) – 44% of pregnant women lost their pregnancies after suffering “spontaneous abortions” during Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine trials, newly unsealed documents have revealed.

The damning revelation was exposed in a trove of documents that were unsealed by a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

The news comes more than a year and a half after Pfizer and Moderna received emergency use authorization (EUA) from the U.S. government for their COVID-19 vaccines.

Only now is the public learning about negative clinical trial results related to pregnancy that were documented by the pharmaceutical giants.

Sprinkled throughout more than 3,600 pages of “adverse events” records from Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine trials are previously-hidden details about birth defects and lost pregnancies.

The documents, which were obtained by court order, show that 22 of the 50 pregnant women who took part in the trials lost their babies due to “spontaneous abortions” or miscarriages.

Despite the alarmingly high number of lost pregnancies recorded during the trials, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) tried to keep the results hidden from the public for 75 years.

However, a federal judge in Texas responded to a lawsuit in January by ordering the immediate release of 12,000 documents and 55,000 pages a month until all of the more than 300,000 pages are made available to the public.

Upon the release of the documents, author and journalist Naomi Wolf recruited researchers to begin analyzing the documents.

She posted the results on her website Daily Clout.

Wolf’s team identified 22 of 50 pregnant women classified as experiencing “abortion spontaneous,” “abortion spontaneous complete,” “abortion spontaneous incomplete” or “miscarriage” as of the report’s cutoff date of March 13, 2021.

All eventually received the vaccine, though eight were initially given the placebo.

All are tagged with the codes for “Recovered/resolved,” referring to adverse events without subsequent complications, and “other,” meaning the vaccine played no role in the lost pregnancies.

The report doesn’t explain the basis for Pfizer’s conclusions that the vaccine played no role, however.

During an interview on “War Room” with Steve Bannon this week, Wolf accused Pfizer of trying to bury the disturbing data on miscarriages.

“Pfizer took those deaths of babies – those spontaneous abortions and miscarriages – and recategorized them as recovered-resolved adverse effects,” she said.

“In other words, if you lost your baby, it was categorized by Pfizer as a resolved adverse event, like a headache that got better.”

Although the threat was revealed in the trials, the FDA continued urging pregnant women to get the experimental vaccines.

Despite the risks, the shots were approved through emergency use authorization and the public was pressured to use them.

“Over a year ago, the FDA received this report that out of 50 pregnant women, 22 of them lost their babies, and they did not say anything,” Wolf said.

“Thus the FDA was aware of the horrifying rate of fetal death by the start of April 2021 and were silent.”


So far, neither Pfizer nor the FDA has responded to the revelations or explained what “other” causes could have been behind the lost pregnancies.

The FDA has known about findings from the vaccine trials for 16 months.

The taxpayer-funded federal health agency has yet to explain why it kept this information hidden.

BOMBSHELL: New Report Exposes Biden’s MASSIVE Mistake In Afghanistan

(Slay News) – The U.S. government left behind more than $7 billion in military equipment when President Joe Biden bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal.

The huge blunder was revealed in the Department of Defense (DOD) Inspector General’s report on the Afghan pullout.

According to Fox News: “The majority of the $7 billion left behind in equipment in the country consisted of tactical ground vehicles such as Humvees and mine-resistant MRAPS.

“In addition to the ground vehicles, the U.S. military lost $923.3 million worth of military aircraft and $294.6 million in aircraft munitions… 316,260 small arms, including sniper rifles, machine guns and grenade launchers, were left behind, amounting to $511.8 million.”

The IG report said: “This Lead Inspector General (Lead IG) report to the United States Congress is the 3rd report on Operation Enduring Sentinel (OES) and the 29th quarterly report detailing Operation Freedom’s Sentinel (OFS).

“The report summarizes significant events involving OES and OFS and describes completed, ongoing, and planned Lead IG and partner agency oversight work. This report covers the period from April 1, 2022, through June 30, 2022.

“U.S. forces did not conduct any airstrikes in Afghanistan during the quarter, but after the quarter ended, a U.S. airstrike killed Ayman al-Zawahiri, the leader of al-Qaeda, in Kabul on July 31. The DoD continues to conduct surveillance of potential terrorist targets in Afghanistan, and its assessment of the number of terrorist fighters in Afghanistan remained unchanged from the previous quarter.

“ISIS-K was the most active terrorist group in Afghanistan this quarter, claiming 80 attacks—a 90 percent increase from the previous quarter—including some complex attacks, demonstrating the group’s capability to strike multiple targets in quick succession.

“Most of these attacks targeted Afghanistan’s Shia Hazara and Sufi religious minorities, civilian infrastructure, and neighboring countries—targeting security forces in Pakistan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan. Through these attacks, ISIS-K aims to undermine Taliban rule and attract new recruits.

“U.S. diplomats temporarily halted in-person, high-level engagements with the Taliban after the Taliban banned girls from attending secondary school in March. U.S.-Taliban dialogue resumed in June with discussions on women’s rights, terrorism, the economy, and U.S. assistance for victims of the recent earthquake.

“No sovereign country recognized the Taliban as the government of Afghanistan this quarter, but some countries, including China, Russia, and Iran, permitted Taliban representatives to occupy and operate the Afghan embassies in their respective capitals.

“The DoD estimated that U.S.-funded equipment valued at $7.12 billion was in the inventory of the former Afghan government when it collapsed, much of which has since been seized by the Taliban. This included military aircraft, ground vehicles, weapons, and other military equipment.

“The condition of these items was unknown, and the long-term operability of the vehicles was likely to deteriorate without U.S. contractor maintenance. The U.S. military removed or destroyed nearly all major equipment used by U.S. troops in Afghanistan throughout the drawdown period in 2021.

“Lead IG and partner agencies continued to conduct oversight projects related to these operations following the U.S. withdrawal and from Afghanistan. During the quarter, the Lead IG agencies issued 9 reports and had 31 projects ongoing.

“Section 8L of the Inspector General Act of 1978 provides a mandate for the three Lead IG agencies—the DoD OIG, DoS OIG, and U.S. Agency for International Development OIG—to work together to develop and carry out joint, comprehensive, and strategic oversight.

“Each IG retains statutory independence, but together they apply their extensive regional experience and in-depth institutional knowledge to conduct whole-of-government oversight of these overseas contingency operations,” the report said.

MUST-SEE: Greg Gutfeld Drops The HAMMER on Liz Cheney… WOW!

(Slay News) – During Wednesday night’s edition of The Five, co-host Greg Gutfeld ended Liz Cheney’s reign of terror saying she should not run again, “you’re not going to get a national office, at best you are going to get Office Depot.”

Greg said: “She compared this to the Civil War. She’s nuts, OK? She’s overtaken with such obsession and such emotional bitterness that she has this grandiose view of herself, and it’s actually now getting embarrassing.

“It’s embarrassing for her. I wish she had a friend that could take her aside saying you’ve got to calm down. Don’t run for office, you’re not going to get a national office, at best you are going to get Office Depot.

“Republicans hate you, the Democrats don’t want you, this is all driven by emotional brokenness that happened from Trump.

“She goes all the way back to the Civil War and, of course, she didn’t mention the Iraq war or the Afghanistan war, because it cuts a little bit too close to home, or to Dad.

“And then she compares herself to Abraham Lincoln.

“People say that Trump has an ego, but when he says stuff like that it’s usually with a wink and everybody’s laughing, there’s nothing in her eye but spite.

“It’s such a personal vendetta from day one, and I get it. Trump had no use for the Cheneys, and the Cheneys had no use for Trump, I get it, but the party has moved on from this sort of thing.

“She hasn’t.

“We’ve heard about this.

“We’ve been told it’s the end of democracy, Trump supporters are evil.

“Adam Kinzinger said that two days ago, he said Trump supporters are evil, and she’s fighting evil.

“How is that not incitement?

“You can’t criticize the FBI.

“But you can smear millions of people because orange Hitler, right?

“I guess she does have something in common with Abe Lincoln, they both allowed theater to kill them and her theater was Jan. 6th.

“I don’t know what she’s going to do next, but I would consider taking a break.

“Do not listen to Democrats, do not listen to the media because they are just going to use you,” he said.

JUST IN: Joe Biden HUMILIATED… Forced To Admit Trump Was Right

(Slay News) – Joe Biden has just reinstated President Donald Trump’s plan for the largest oil and gas lease sale in U.S. history.

According to Fox Business, “Biden and his team are ‘essentially steamrolling the need for environmental review, by signing the Inflation Reduction Act into law on Tuesday.’”

Lease Sale 257 was originally planned by the Trump administration and will be the largest offshore oil and gas lease sale in U.S. history.

However, it was held up in the courts.

While the Democrats’ “Inflation Reduction Act” includes several green energy provisions opposed by the fossil fuel industry, the bill also orders the Department of the Interior (DOI) to take a series of steps to boost fossil fuel production on federal lands and waters, according to Fox Business

The legislation specifically requires the DOI to reinstate Lease Sale 257, a massive offshore oil and gas sale spanning 80.8 million acres across the Gulf of Mexico, within 30 days of enactment.

“There should be no questions about the issuance of leases from Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale 257,” National Ocean Industries Association President Erik Milito said.

“The legislation is clear and mandatory.

“Congress has acted, the leases must be issued, and the lawsuit must be dismissed.”

From The Washington Post on November 17, 2021:

During his first week in office, Biden signed an executive order instructing the Interior to pause all new lease sales on public lands and waters while it reviewed how to adjust the program.

But in June, a federal judge in Louisiana issued a preliminary injunction to block the pause. U.S. District Judge Terry A. Doughty, a Trump appointee, found the Interior could not stop leasing without congressional approval.

At a Monday briefing, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the administration was “required to comply with the injunction,” even as the Justice Department asks an appeals court to overturn the judge’s order.

“It’s a legal case and legal process, but it’s important for advocates and other people out there who are following this to understand that it’s not aligned with our view, the president’s policies, or the executive order that he signed,” Psaki said.

BOMBSHELL: Bill Gates Caught Secretly Conspiring With Biden Admin

(Slay News) – Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates was reportedly part of “secret” negotiations that helped the Democrats pass President Joe Biden’s controversial “Inflation Reduction Act.”

According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), the Democrats’ “Inflation Reduction Act” (IRA) will raise taxes on the middle class to the tune of $20 billion.

As Slay News has been reporting, the bill also plows billions into the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and will double the agency’s size by hiring an additional 87,000 new agents.

The IRS’s criteria for new agents include being “willing to use deadly force.”

Meanwhile, images have emerged from IRS training exercises that show armed agents being taught how to raid suburban homes.

A former IRS whistleblower has also revealed that the agency is planning to target middle-class Americans under the IRA, despite claims of the contrary from Democrats.

According to a new report, all of this was made possible by Bill Gates and, to a lesser extent, former President Barack Obama’s economic advisor Larry Summers.

In a Tuesday Bloomberg article, Gates recalls how he tapped into a relationship with Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin (D-VW) earlier this year.

He said he’d that he’d been cultivating the relationship since at least 2019.

As moderate Democrat Senators Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) continued to block the tax-and-spend legislation over concerns that it would raise taxes on the middle class earlier this year, Gates says he stepped in.

As Bloomberg reports:

Gates was banking on more than just his trademark optimism about addressing climate change and other seemingly intractable problems that have been his focus since stepping down as Microsoft’s chief executive two decades ago.

As he revealed to Bloomberg Green, he has quietly lobbied Manchin and other senators, starting before President Joe Biden had won the White House, in anticipation of a rare moment in which heavy federal spending might be secured for the clean-energy transition.

Those discussions gave him reason to believe the senator from West Virginia would come through for the climate — and he was willing to continue pressing the case himself until the very end.

“The last month people felt like, OK, we tried, we’re done, it failed,” Gates said.

“I believed it was a unique opportunity.”

So he tapped into a relationship with Manchin that he’d cultivated for at least three years.

“We were able to talk even at a time when he felt people weren’t listening.”

Apparently, the relationship between Gates and Manchin first started when the billionaire wooed the West Virginia senator at a 2019 dinner in Seattle.

Gates was trying to garner support for a clean-energy policy.

Manchin, at the time, was the senior-most Democrat on the energy committee.

“My dialogue with Joe has been going on for quite a while,” said Gates.

After Manchin walked on the bill last December over concerns that it would exacerbate the national debt, inflation, the pandemic, and amid geopolitical uncertainty with Russia, Gates jumped into action.

A few weeks later, he met with Manchin and his wife, Gayle Conelly Manchin, at a Washington D.C. restaurant.

During the meeting, they talked about what West Virginia needed.

Manchin understandably wanted to preserve jobs at the center of the U.S. coal industry.

Gates, meanwhile, suggested that coal plant workers could simply swap over to nuclear plants, such as those from Gates’s TerraPower.

Manchin apparently wasn’t convinced.

On February 1, Manchin announced that Biden’s “Build Back Better,” the Inflation Reduction Act’s previous iteration, was “dead.”

In an effort to convince him otherwise, Democrats pulled together a cadre of economists and other Manchin influencers – including former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers.

Summers convinced Manchin that the bill wouldn’t raise taxes on the middle class, or add to the deficit.

Per Bloomberg:

Collin O’Mara, chief executive officer of the National Wildlife Federation, recruited economists to assuage Manchin’s concerns — including representatives from the University of Chicago and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Senator Chris Coons of Delaware brought in a heavyweight: former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers, who has spent decades advising Democrats.

The economists were able to “send this signal that [the bill’s] going to help with the deficit,” O’Mara said.

“It’s going to be slightly deflationary and it’s going to spur growth and investment in all these areas.”

Through this subtle alchemy, clean-energy investments could be reframed for Manchin as a hedge against future spikes in oil and gas prices and a way to potentially export more energy to Europe.

Gates also sprang into action again on July 7 this year, when Manchin was spotted at the Sun Valley media conference in Idaho.

“We had a talk about what was missing, what needed to be done,” said Gates, who was also attending the conference.

“And then after that, it was a lot of phone calls.”

Bloomberg reports:

Gates looks back at the new law with satisfaction.

He achieved what he set out to do.

“I will say that it’s one of the happier moments of my climate work,” Gates said.

“I have two things that excite me about climate work. One is when policy gets done well, and this is by far the biggest moment like that.”

His other pleasure comes from interviewing people at climate and clean-tech startups: “I hear about this amazing new way to make steel, cement and chemicals.”

“I don’t want to take credit for what went on,” Gates told Bloomberg in the article about how he gets credit for what went on.

The massive tax and spending bill was signed into law by Biden on Tuesday.

MUST-SEE: Wyoming Voters SLAM Liz Cheney When Asked If They’d Vote For Her For President

(Slay News) – Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) lost big last night but that did not stop her from saying she may run for president in 2024.

“I believe that Donald Trump continues to pose a very grave threat and risk to our republic,” Cheney said during her concession speech.

“And I think that defeating him is going to require a broad and united front of Republicans, Democrats, and independents, and that’s what I intend to be a part of.

“We’ve now got one major political party, my party, which has really become a cult of personality, and we’ve got to get this party back to a place where we’re embracing the values and the principles on which it was founded.

“That’s a decision that I’m going to make in the coming months, and I’m not going to make any announcements here this morning — but it is something that I am thinking about,” she said of running for president.

So Fox News went and asked some Wyoming voters what they thought of someone who just lost by nearly 40 points running for president.

“No, please, no, no, no,” one woman said.

“I wouldn’t support her as a dogcatcher,” one man said.

Another man said:

“I think there are going to be too many things in her background that people are going to remember.

“She’s trying to get Democrats to vote for her, and she’s been pushing a lot of Democrats’ stuff.

“She should just go ahead and change parties.

“I don’t see her getting a whole lot of support from Republicans.”

One voiced support for Cheney: “I’d vote for her. We need strong women with powerful decision making, and fair.”

A supporter of Cheney’s said that while she likes Liz she would rather see Trump run for president:

“Even though I support her, I still think Trump did a lot for Wyoming and that we’ve been hurt by our new president.”


WATCH: Joe Rogan Exposes The TRUTH Behind The FBI’s Raid On Trump

(Slay News) – Podcaster Joe Rogan has told his massive audience that the FBI raided President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home to “knock” him out of the 2024 election.

During Tuesday’s episode of his hit podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience,” the host weighed in on the raid by Democrat President Joe Biden’s FBI.

Rogan questioned whether the 45th president truly committed a crime and suspected the raid was done in an attempt to prevent Trump from running for re-election.

The FBI retrieved eleven sets of classified material after raiding Trump’s Florida residence on August 8.

“Is he actually in trouble?” Rogan said to his guest, Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon.

“Because I think the goal was to knock him out of the 2024 election by trying him for crimes.

“What did he do?”

Dillon additionally questioned whether the raid is truly about information that he should not have had.

He then suggested that the agency could have requested that the material be handed over to them.

Rogan argued there is a real legal argument to be made.

However, he suggested there is unfair treatment in regards to dealing with classified information from Trump versus former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.


“I think the problem is having it,” Rogan said during his show, which garners 11 million listeners per episode.

“Because if you have it in an unsecured location, meaning unsecured in terms of [the] government’s protection, it’s not locked up in Archives, it’s not in a place that’s very difficult to access.

“You have control, personally, over the access to something that’s top secret.

“If that’s the case, then that’s a problem because that safe could be open, people can get in there.

“People can get in with the code, they can copy it, they can send it to China.”

“But do you think that’s a genuine concern or would they want to find something, anything, they can use to prevent him from running again?” Dillon asked.

“I think both things are valid,” Rogan said.

“I think if they’re just doing that they’re using the FBI in a way that they would never use it against Hillary Clinton, then they’re going after him in a way they would never go after Ghislaine Maxwell’s client list, then we have a real conversation.”

Rogan said one needs to be “held accountable” for withholding classified information.

Dillon pointed to the alleged “double standard” of the FBI’s handling of Trump versus Clinton or Hunter Biden.

“If it was Hillary Clinton’s home, they would have no interest of what was in her safe,” Dillon said.

“Because she’ll kill them,” Rogan joked.

“I see what you’re saying.

“I see both sides, though.

“I see the side that if you’re an anti-Trump person and you find out that he’s doing something that’s against the law, I don’t know the specifics of the Hillary Clinton email thing in term of what those files were, but if they’re the same classification, you can make the argument they were more vulnerable because they were on a regular laptop.”

The released search warrant and receipt for property revealed that the FBI obtained four sets of top secret documents, three sets of secret documents and three more sets of confidential material.

The material seized by the agents included 20 boxes filled with binders of photographs, information about the President of France, a handwritten note, and an executive grant of clemency for Roger Stone.

Trump said in a statement that all the documents found in his home were “declassified” and in a “secured location.”

The 45th president’s attorney certified in a June letter that there was no classified information inside Mar-a-Lago.

The agency discovered that the obtained boxes labeled A-14, A-26, A-43, A-13, and A-33 contained material under attorney-client privilege, which guarantees that all communication between an attorney and their client remains confidential, Fox News reported Saturday.

The warrant, signed by U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart, allowed the agents to search “the 45 office” and “all storage rooms and all other rooms and or areas within the premises used or available to be used by POTUS and his staff.”

BOMBSHELL: IRS Whistleblower SPILL The Beans… Here’s What’s REALLY Happening

(Slay News) – A former Internal Revenue Service (IRS) official has blown the whistle to reveal that the federal agency plans to target middle-class Americans under the Democrats’ “Inflation Reduction Act.”

Former IRS attorney William Henck worked for the agency for 20 years until 2017.

He left the IRS when he was terminated for allegedly revealing sensitive information to the media.

He revealed how the IRS had reportedly failed to identify a multi-billion-dollar corporate tax credit scheme involving burning pulp byproducts – a source of energy also known as black liquor.

Now the whistleblower is speaking out to reveal that the IRS is seeking to target middle-income Americans with increased scrutiny and audits.

Speaking to Fox Business, Henck disputed claims by the IRS and other officials who have said that increased funding for the agency under the “Inflation Reduction Act” would only lead to more audits for wealthy millionaires and billionaires and large corporations.

The Democrat-led “Inflation Reduction Act” is set to be signed into law by President Joe Biden this week and will double the size of the IRS by adding an additional 87,000 agents.

“The idea that they’re going to open things up and go after these big billionaires and large corporations is quite frankly [expletive],” Henck said in the Monday interview.

“It’s not going to happen,” he continued.

“They’re going to give themselves bonuses and promotions and really nice conferences.”

“The big corporations and the billionaires are probably sitting back laughing right now,” he said, adding that it was “insane” to double the IRS budget.

Henck also said he believes that the agency will go after businesses that don’t have enough money to hire Washington lobbyists.

The Democrat-controlled House passed the IRA in a strictly party-line vote on August 12.

It includes nearly $80 billion in IRS funding, including $45.6 billion for “enforcement.”

As Slay News previously reported, the IRS is seeking to hire new agents who are “willing to use deadly force.”

A Treasury Department report from May 2021 (pdf) estimated that such an investment would enable the agency to hire roughly 87,000 employees by 2031.

Amid mounting fears, the IRS has claimed that it will “absolutely not” be using the extra money to increase audit scrutiny on small businesses or middle-income Americans.

IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig stated in a letter to members of the Senate on August 4 that the extra resources will instead serve to help the agency in “challenging” areas.

Rettig claims those areas include audits of large corporate and global high-net-worth taxpayers.

“These resources are absolutely not about increasing audit scrutiny on small businesses or middle-income Americans,” Rettig wrote in the letter.

“As we’ve been planning, our investment of these enforcement resources is designed around the Department of the Treasury’s directive that audit rates will not rise relative to recent years for households making under $400,000.”

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre have also doubled down on their rhetoric regarding reports about the extra funding being utilized to target middle-income Americans.

The White House claims that there would be no new audits for individuals earning less than $400,000 per year.

Whistleblower Henck disagrees, however.

“There will be considerable incentive to basically to shake down taxpayers, and the advantage the IRS has is they have basically unlimited resources and no accountability, whereas a taxpayer has to weigh the cost of accountants, tax lawyers—fighting something in tax court,” he told Fox Business.

“If you own a roofing company, you better count on getting audited because that’s what they’re going to be doing,” he continued.

“They’re going to be going after your car dealerships, roofing companies.”

Henck’s comments come after the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) found that working-class Americans will end up paying billions of dollars in new taxes thanks to the IRA.

Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee said on Aug. 12 that they had received the information from the CBO confirming that under the new legislation, lower- and middle-income Americans will pay an estimated $20 billion more in taxes over the next decade.

This confirms that “at least $20 billion of the $124 billion in new revenue expected by a supercharged IRS will be coming from higher audits on low- and middle-income Americans” and that this would be “in addition to existing audits on these income levels,” GOP lawmakers said in a statement.

The news also follows a recent report by Slay News that highlighted the IRS’s new training programs.

Images emerged that show armed IRS agents training to raid suburban homes.
