WTF: Trump’s Likely Treasury Boss Is A Professional Swamp-Dweller, ex-Soros Fund Mgmt & Goldman Sachs

Interesting, is it not, that Trump may select Steve Mnuchin (or is it Munchkin), a longtime swamp dwelling high-level player at Goldman Sachs and Soros Fund Management (yes, you read that right ) as Treasury Secretary.  This pick makes the consideration of Romney for SoS look good. Among the many, many reasons we should beware anything to do with Goldman Sachs, note that they have an entire investment research division dedicated to taking the “man” out of “manufacturing”.  I wonder if this group has been helping Carrier and Ford eliminate jobs? source:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmDR29YNKqc — SafeSpace —

The Government Motors Recall Fiasco…..

….Or, a more appropriate sub-title could be, Is It Good To Know The King ? Whenever the left is wringing their hands, and tsk-tsking something, it sets off my bullshit meter. So it is with the General Motors recent spate of recalls.   There is absolutely NOTHING new about the numbers, nor scope of these current recalls. While GM builds some attractive vehicles, for the price one pays for them, they should NEVER have a problem. After listening to a radio program yesterday, I decided to take a look at this mess. What I found, using the government’s own statistics, I … Continue reading

Meet The Kronies

The Kronies are in action: Mandating, Tarrify-ing, Inflating, and Boondoggling their way to profits powered by their special connection to the G-Force. One of the biggest lies in politics is the idea that big government is force to constrain big corporate power. It’s the big lie at the heart of well-intentioned liberal calls for more government intervention into the economy. It takes a certain amount of ignorance, willful or not, to maintain this big lie in the face of actual reality. Crony deals have always been the norm for government intervention from Obamacare, to “green” energy subsidies, to no-bid military … Continue reading

Meet The Man Who Purchased The Virginia Governorship For McAuliffe

The California billionaire who bought the Virginia Governorship for McAuliffe (and for himself). From AgainstCronyCapitalism.org:By Nick Sorrentino We have lots of friends in the environmental community. We value a vibrant natural world and we have and will continue to work toward such a world through various means. We are fans of solar power, and wind, and so called “alternative” energy technologies. But within the parameters of the market. If alternative energy sources cannot operate within the marketplace such energies are by definition not sustainable. The truth is that much of the money which went to “green” energy efforts during the first … Continue reading

The “Darling” Of The “Green Car” Movement………

……Tesla Motors, which I’ve done several stories on, has seen it’s stock explode recently. Whenever I hear that, I wonder. Not anymore.     Electric car maker fueled by tax subsidies Breanna Deutsch from The Daily Caller.com Tesla Motors has been basking in praise ever since the company became profitable in the first quarter of 2013, but critics point out that the company’s success would not exist without accounting gimmicks and massive government tax credits. Forbes reported that the electric vehicle is overvalued partly because much of Tesla’s earnings come from zero emission vehicle tax credits  (ZEV). The ZEV awards a … Continue reading
