    First hand testimony | 8 August 2020 | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin
    The Capital Metro (Cap Metro) trains in Austin, TX run without passengers, not a single one, almost every day during the weekday. This is first hand witness knowledge over a several month period. The drivers of those trains must have one of the best jobs in the world, with high pay, health benefits and retirement, etc. and almost never a passenger with whom they have to interact. I asked someone knowledgeable in Austin why this his happening and that person told me it is because they are receiving millions in Federal money for the trains. The thought then came, "Are...
  • Why the Mortality Rate for Black Infants Is So High

    As Americans discuss black livelihood in the context of recent high-profile black deaths at the hands of police officers, a merciless villain is quietly snatching away thousands of black lives each year: infant mortality. To be sure, medicine has gone a long way toward keeping black babies alive. In 1850, the black infant-mortality rate was 340 per 1,000 (compared with 217 per 1,000 for whites). Still, despite progress, last year over 7,000 black babies died in the United States before reaching one year of age — one baby for every 87 born. Troublingly, the infant-mortality rate is far higher for...

  • How soaring enrollment, big spending, waste, fraud are boosting NY Medicaid costs

    Post Standard, Syracuse NY ^ | 02.21.20 | James T. Mulder | jmulder@syracuse.com
    Spending on an increasingly popular New York Medicaid program that lets the elderly and disabled hire people, including their own relatives, to care for them at home soared 85 percent between 2017 and 2018. The Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program – CDPAP for short – is intended to keep people out of high-cost nursing homes and other institutions. But a 2018 federal audit criticized New York for not keeping an eye on the program. “New York’s lack of effective monitoring of the CDPAP leaves the program vulnerable to misuse of federal funds and could potentially place beneficiaries at harm,” the...

    The German government on Monday said it hoped the revelations from the so-called “Panama Papers” will spur global efforts to combat tax evasion and money laundering. “We hope the current debate will turn up the heat,” finance ministry spokesman Martin Jäger told a news briefing. […] The Panama Papers are a massive leak of 11.5 million documents allegedly exposing the secret offshore dealings of a host of world leaders, celebrities and sports stars, implicating figures from Russian President Vladimir Putin to Barcelona striker Lionel Messi. […] The documents, from around 214,000 offshore entities covering almost 40 years, came from Mossack...
  • Panama Papers Reveal Clinton’s Kremlin Connection

    Observer ^ | 4-7-16
    The revelations of the so-called Panama Papers that are roiling the world’s political and financial elites this week include important facts about Team Clinton. This unprecedented trove of documents purloined from a shady Panama law firm that arranged tax havens, and perhaps money laundering, for the globe’s super-rich includes juicy insights into how Russia’s elite hides its ill-gotten wealth. Almost lost among the many revelations is the fact that Russia’s biggest bank uses The Podesta Group as its lobbyist in Washington, DC. Though hardly a household name, this firm is well known inside the Beltway, not least because its CEO...

    One of John Podesta's emails released by WikiLeaks this week exposes how progressive elites seek to exploit the unwashed masses. The email features one of Podesta's colleagues from the Center for American Progress admitting that the institutional left "conspires to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry," ostensibly to impose their radical agenda on us without much resistance. ....snip .. In the email from March of 2016, Ivey expresses concern about the rise of "opinionated blowhard" Trump and frets because the "citizenry" seems to be awakening. Well, we all thought the big problem for our US democracy was Citizens United/Koch Brothers...

    Leaked funding documents reveal an effort by George Soros and his foundations to manipulate election laws and process rules ahead of the federal election far more expansively than has been previously reported. The billionaire and convicted felon moved hundreds of millions of dollars into often-secret efforts to change election laws, fuel litigation to attack election integrity measures, push public narratives about voter fraud, and to integrate the political ground game of the left with efforts to scare racial minority groups about voting rights threats. These Soros-funded efforts moved through dozens of 501(c)(3) and (c)(4) charities and involved the active compliance with civil rights groups, government...

    We have conducted an in-depth analysis of Obama-era White House visitor logs, and we have learned a good deal about the people who controversial CIA employee Eric Ciaramella met with while assigned to the White House. Ciaramella reportedly was detailed to the Obama White House in 2015 and returned to the CIA during the Trump administration in 2017. Real Clear Investigations named Ciaramella as possibly being the whistleblower whose complaint sparked impeachment proceedings against President Trump. As reported by the Examiner, Fox News’ legal analyst Gregg Jarrett indicated that a key takeaway was the “reported direct relationship” Ciaramella had with...

    Mark S. Zaid, the activist attorney representing the so-called whistleblower at the center of the impeachment movement targeting President Donald Trump, advocated for Robert S. Mueller III to become an anti-Trump whistleblower. On April 25, 2018, while Mueller’s Office of the Special Counsel was investigating ultimately collapsed claims of collusion between Russia and Trump’s presidential campaign, Zaid co-authored an oped in the New York Times calling for Mueller and his staff to become “lawful whistle-blowers.” The scheme outlined by Zaid was an option to be implemented if Trump had moved to fire Mueller and dismantle the Special Counsel’s office. Zaid...

    Daily Beast ^ | 9/12/19
    ThinkProgress, the influential news site that rose to prominence in the shadow of the Bush administration and helped define progressivism during the Obama years, is shutting down. The outlet, which served as an editorially independent project of the Democratic Party think tank Center for American Progress (CAP), will stop current operations on Friday and be converted into a site where CAP scholars can post. Top officials at CAP had been searching for a buyer to take over ThinkProgress, which has run deficits for years, and according to sources there were potentially three serious buyers in the mix recently. But in...

    Liberal author begs 'normal people' not to wear sports teams' MAGA-like red caps: 'You're making everyone scared' Has "Trump Derangement Syndrome" literally gone to liberals' heads? An author who has been a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award received backlash on Twitter after likening President Trump's red “Make America Great Again” hats to the Nazi swastika -- and urging "normal people" (i.e., non-Trump voters) to avoid wearing any type of red hat, saying they'd be “making people scared” by doing so. The Chicago-based author, Rebecca Makkai, 41, made the remarks in a string of tweets beginning over...

    The Democrats are pretty desperate to beat President Donald J. Trump in 2020. He just packed a stadium in New Hampshire last week. His crowd attendance broke the previous record set by the world-famous singer, Elton John. With stats like that, leftists are going to try just about anything to convince the American voters that the president is unfit for the job. Their latest strategy? Claiming "The Donald" is addicted to Twitter.The Daily Beast reports that the Center for American Progress has been telling candidates the best way to beat Trump is to frame him as ineffective.

    Arizona and Nevada are facing the first-ever mandatory cuts in the amount of water they can take from the Colorado River next year. The two states are among seven that have agreed to drought contingency plans for the river system that serves about 40 million people and 6,300 square miles of farmland from Wyoming to Southern California. The cuts are triggered by water levels expected in Lake Mead, a giant reservoir on the river at the Arizona-Nevada border. On Jan. 1, Lake Mead's level is projected to be 1,089.4 feet, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation said late last week. That's...

    ThinkProgress, the news site operated by the Democratic think tank Center for American Progress, is up for sale, according to the Daily Beast. The staff was informed Monday that the site would be sold by CAP executive director Navin Nayak in a memo. “Unfortunately, like so many other news outlets that have relied on advertising to fund its work, ThinkProgress has seen a significant drop in revenue in recent years, along with other financial strains. In addition, events over the last few years have underscored the divergent missions of American Progress and ThinkProgress,” said Nayak.

  • 5 Myths About the State and Local Tax Deduction’s Cap

    06/25/2019 2:21:35 PM PDT · by Tolerance Sucks Rocks · 16 replies
    Ever since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed in late 2017, Democrats and a few Republicans have decried how the law’s $10,000 cap of the state and local tax deduction harms schools, local communities, home values, first responders, and middle-class families. Fast forward almost two years later and these false claims are not going away. House Democrats recently announced a hearing scheduled for Tuesday where many of the common myths are likely to be repeated. Here are a few of the most common misconceptions. Myth #1: The Cap Hurts Middle-Class Taxpayers Before the 2017 tax cut capped the state...

    The Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania (CAP), the leader in a capitalist revolt in Pennsylvania, is now spreading its message beyond the state’s borders. And it has gained a receptive audience. That audience gathered a few days ago for a conference held in a place that could not be more symbolic of CAP’s efforts — Carpenters’ Hall in Philadelphia. Recall the historic significance of Carpenters’ Hall. The year: 1774. The event: What would become known to history as the First Continental Congress. The delegates: Representatives from 12 of the 13 British colonies — all except Georgia. Among them were names that...

    Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager, John Podesta, played a central role in another potential Russian collusion scandal that has not yet been investigated. Podesta, the former chief of staff to President Bill Clinton, served on the board of Joule Unlimited, a now defunct alternative energy company, from January 2011 to January 2014. He resigned from the company’s board to accept the powerful job of Counselor to President Barack Obama. During Podesta’s tenure on the board of Joule Unlimited, a significant investment in the company by a firm owned by the Russian government escaped review and scrutiny by the Committee on...
