    For someone who backed Hillary Clinton in the presidential election, Warren Buffett has done just fine so far with a Donald Trump victory. The multibillionaire head of Berkshire Hathaway has seen his investment portfolio explode in the days since Trump’s stunning upset Nov. 8. Buffett has benefited particularly well from the myriad financial holdings he holds in the company’s portfolio. Bank stocks have surged since Trump’s win, on anticipation of higher rates and less regulation of Wall Street. Taken together, the company’s half-dozen top financial holdings have brought the Oracle of Omaha a hefty $4.3 billion in profits since the...

    Since WikiLeaks began releasing once-private messages from Hillary Clinton campaign chief John Podesta, the world has had even more access to hard evidence of the mainstream media’s support for and collusion with Democratic Party operatives and campaigns. The latest example, reported now for the very first time (as are we can tell), shows CNBC’s Rebecca Quick — the co-host of the channel’s popular show Squawk Box and a co-moderator with John Harwood at a 2015 Republican primary debate — promising to support Sylvia Mathews Burwell, who had just been named the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services....
  • Buffett hits back at Trump over tax comments

    Reuters ^ | 10/10/16
    Billionaire investor Warren Buffett denied on Monday an allegation by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump that he, like Trump, had taken "a massive deduction" that allowed him to avoid federal income taxes. Buffett said he paid about $1.85 million in income tax in 2015, and that returns for previous years were similar in respect to contributions, deductions and tax rates. Buffett said he was being audited by the Internal Revenue Service, but had "no problem" releasing his tax information. Trump has refused to release his tax returns, citing ongoing audits by the IRS. "I have paid federal income tax every...
  • WARREN BUFFETT PLEDGES TO ESCORT HILLARY VOTERS TO POLLS IN NOVEMBER?

    Buffett made a surprise appearance in Omaha alongside Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton Monday afternoon. He challenged Trump to release his tax returns, and went on to criticize Trump’s recent comments on the Khan family, who lost their son fighting in Iraq. After launching his new website – Drive2vote – allowing people to sign up for a ride or provide transportation for others on Election Day, as well as to register to vote, he promised to be a key participant in that endeavor. Buffett pledged to “take at least 10 people to the polls who otherwise would have had difficulty...

    From one who specializes in it. It’s bad enough that President Obama dragged his feet for seven years before doing what everyone knew he was going to do. TransCanada, the Canadian government an awful lot of Americans who could have used the economic boost (including the folks in North Dakota and an awful lot of Obama’s union supporters) were left to twist in the wind while Obama pretended he was “reviewing” the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. Of course, he was doing no such thing. He knew on Day 1 he was going to reject it because that’s what his extreme...

    Not to be outdone by his partner Charlie Munger (who offended many with his comments that "gold is a great thing to sew onto your garments if you're a Jewish family in Vienna in 1939,"), Berkshire Hathaway's Warren Buffett - having already taken on Europe, comparing Greece to a "dog peeing on the carpet" of Europe, suggesting Germany stop "rewarding behavior you want to get rid of" - takes aim at the military. Speaking on Bloomberg TV, the octagenerian oracle of offense just unfriended every American veteran... "You want everybody educated to their potential. You want people to reach their...

    July 31, 2015 (NewsBusters) -- In response to a series of incriminating under-cover videos from The Center for Medical Progress about the major abortion provider, organizations have been cutting ties -- or denying ties -- to Planned Parenthood. But where nonprofits are concerned, tax records keep the story straight. Between 2010 and 2013, no fewer than 966 individual organizations donated to Planned Parenthood. Of those, 31 gave more than $1 million each during those four years, totaling $374,199,059. The seven highest donors made up $324.8 million of that. These largest Planned Parenthood donors include Warren Buffett, George Soros, Bill Gates, and others....

    I just happened to search Warren Buffet's position on or even a statement about the on-going situation with Planned Parenthood and lo and behold look what I came up with. I've never seen this website in my life but it is conservative and present you with the link.Although there are people on the ground on this issue sometimes the head of a fish needs to be brought to focus. I'm sure they are other money "whales" and high rollers involved but here's a part of the "head"of this rotting fish called the abortion industry.

    The day before he put a gun to his head and killed himself at an M Resort buffet on Easter, a Las Vegas man filled a box with his complaints against the resort and its employees and mailed it to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. In his final, angry message to the world, delivered to the newspaper Monday morning, John Noble blamed his suicide on depression that set in after the Henderson resort awarded him free meals at the buffet for life then banned him from the property in 2013 for harassing some of the women working there. “Today, I end...

    So the greatest trick of the Devil is convincing people he doesn’t exist? Pope Francis is not impressed. Starting with his very first homily as the bishop of Rome, Pope Francis has regularly reminded believers that the Devil is real, that we must be on guard, and that our only hope against him is in Jesus Christ. Here are are 13 of Pope Francis’ most direct quotes on the matter. Read all the quotes here: http://www.churchpop.com/2014/10/07/13-pope-francis-quotes-oldest-foe-devil/

    It must have been a bitter moment for President Barack Obama when he got the news that his favorite economic guru not only doesn’t like paying taxes but hates America. Warren Buffett, whose eponymous rule was a staple of Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign, is underwriting Burger King’s proposed move to Canada that the left is denouncing as practically the most dastardly plot since the Rosenbergs helped the Soviets get the atomic bomb. Burger King is acquiring the Canadian coffee and doughnuts chain Tim Hortons in what is called a “corporate inversion.” At least that’s the technical term for it. Obama...

    CBN ^ | May 14, 2014 | CBNNews.com
    Billionaire investor Warren Buffett is being called "the true face of abortion." The Media Research Center's Culture and Media Institute discovered that Buffett gave roughly $1.2 billion to abortion groups around the world between 2001 and 2012. That's potentially enough money to abort the entire population of Chicago -- or more than two-and-a-half million lives. Among the groups Buffett helped fund are Planned Parenthood, NARAL and the Population Council. The biggest portion, almost $300 million, went to Planned Parenthood. The major media outlets often report on Buffett's "philanthropy," but they've ignored his billion dollar abortion funding. "The liberal media love...

    They say the key to successful investing is diversification. But Berkshire Hathaway Chairman & CEO Warren Buffett, the billionaire investor known as the “Oracle of Omaha,” is a one-issue man — and that issue is abortion.Through the foundation he financed with more than $3 billion of his own money, Buffett donated $1,230,585,161 to abortion groups worldwide from 2001 to 2012. These groups, including Planned Parenthood, NARAL and the Population Council, either campaign for pro-abortion legislation, perform abortions themselves, or helped develop the controversial abortion drug RU-486. Buffett gave an additional $21 million to these groups between 1989 and 1996. (Tax...

    Sen. John Hoeven (R-N.D.) said he thinks President Obama will approve the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. In the wake of multiple crude-by-rail train accidents in North Dakota -- leaving railcars ablaze and nearby residents at risk --Hoeven said on "Platts Energy Week" that the U.S. needs more pipelines. The U.S. needs pipelines "not only to improve conditions in terms of rail, but trucks," Hoeven said on Sunday. "With the Keystone pipeline, we'd take 500 trucks a day off our roads in western North Dakota." "So clearly pipelines are a part of the solution. But also we have to do everything...

    Add Arnold Waldo of Carrick to the list of people disappointed with recent changes being made at the H.J. Heinz Co. Mr. Waldo, 82, who retired from the Pittsburgh food company in 1985, received a letter in late November notifying him that Heinz was reducing its contribution to a retiree reimbursement account used to cover certain medical expenses, such as co-pays for doctor visits and health insurance premiums. "Beginning in 2014, Heinz will contribute $1,093 per year, per household to your RRA," the letter dated Nov. 21 said. The cut, not the first to the retiree benefit, takes the level...
