Orrin Hatch Tells Dems He Is Fed Up with Their “Stinking Class Warfare”

Now I normally do not turn to MSNBC (barf) for video clips, but this one is just too good not to share.  Last night at a Senate Finance Committee meeting discussing the proposed GOP tax plan, Senator Orrin Hatch (R, Utah) unloaded on Senator Sherrod Brown (D, Ohio).  He may be a little late getting into the game, but Senator Hatch said a few things to his “friend” on the other side of the aisle that have needed saying for, oh, decades. Listen to Brown’s comments closely, too, as they are as clear a presentation of Democrat economic propaganda as … Continue reading

Democrats Seek To Bailout Their Union Buddies

by raiding the US Treasury. EXCERPT:  “Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, plans to introduce legislation that would allow struggling multiemployer pension funds to borrow from the U.S. Treasury to remain solvent. The bill, co-sponsored by Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, could be introduced later this week or shortly after. It would create a new office within the Treasury Department called the Pension Rehabilitation Administration. The funds would come from the sale of Treasury-issued bonds to financial institutions. The pension funds could borrow for 30 years at low interest rates. One restriction for borrowers is they could not make risky investments. The bill … Continue reading

The $80,000 Yugo, Financed By Us Maggot Taxpayers

Four point nine billion dollars up front to Elon Musk for his Tesla companies … plus a $7,500 federal income tax credit and a $2,500 rebate to each and every buyer of the Tesla Model S automobile sold in the USA.  Set aside for a moment what we maggot taxpayers get in return and consider just what the virtue-signalling, eco-warrior purchasers of the Model S themselves get for $80,000:  An unreliable vehicle with the fit and finish of a 1970s Chevy.  A jackwagon for “special” people to be seen in (when it’s actually running.)  Golly gee, with deals like this … Continue reading

So Just Who IS Paul Singer?

Paul Singer has been fingered (love that term) as the Daddy Warbucks behind Fusion GPS’s efforts to taint candidate Donald Trump.  Who is Mr. Singer?  Short answer:  A vulture capitalist member of the globalist elite, albeit not as well-known as many.  Singer made his fortune wheeling and dealing in “distressed debt”, buying sub-par financial obligations, repackaging them, and auctioning them to the highest bidder.  Can anyone say “sub-prime mortgage crisis”?  Singer does in the debt market what guys like Victor Posner does in the hard asset market (Posner buys flailing corporations, strips their physical assets, auctions them off, and pink-slips … Continue reading

The Economics Of A California Secession

Imagine a newly-reconstituted United States, 49 in number, with an international border between California and Nevada, Arizona and Oregon.  Woo hoo, you say!  No more Left Coast libtards dominating American rhetoric, media and politics!  Ideologically, the removal of California from the body politic of the rest of the USA is a beautiful thing.  But there are two realities which argue strongly against secession. First is the fact that California is a net contributor to the federal treasury.  Several years ago, California and the federal government transferred funds almost at par, as the following data show: http://www.lao.ca.gov/reports/2013/calfacts/calfacts_010213.aspx California Receives About $330 … Continue reading

Comrade DiBlasio: Tammany Hall Redux

Ahhh, the justice and equality of centralized control … big government taking care of you … but “step out of line, and the Man come take you away” … Comrade DiBlasio, mayor of New York City, outs himself as a communist.  His words are an eerie echo of the glory days of Tammany Hall, when a clique of corrupt politicians surrounded a petty dictator who ran New York City with an iron fist.  DiBlasio’s popularity proves just how stupid metro New Yorkers are.  If ever there was a city built by individual risk-takers, by self-directed business entrepreneurs, it is New … Continue reading
