    A Hillary Clinton presidency would have been even more disruptive that the current Donald Trump administration, historian and prolific author Niall Ferguson told CNBC on Thursday. "There would have been an almost immediate impeachment process," Ferguson said in an interview with CNBC's Steve Sedgwick at the Ambrosetti Forum in Italy on Thursday. "More importantly, Trump supporters would have bought the story that the election had been rigged and you would have had Trump supporters with their pitchforks, or more likely semi-automatics, in a very ugly mood," he added. An anonymous op-ed published by The New York Times on Wednesday painted...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders' criticism of Amazon peaked Wednesday as he and Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., introduced legislation to tax corporations for every dollar that their low-wage workers receive in government health-care benefits or food stamps. The bill, pointedly called the Stop Bad Employers by Zeroing Out Subsidies, or BEZOS, Act, is aimed at shaming companies like Amazon and Walmart, whose workers rely on public assistance. For months, Sanders has targeted Amazon, juxtaposing the wealth of CEO Jeff Bezos with reports that Amazon warehouse workers are paid less than industry averages and rely on food stamps. Bezos is the richest man...

    It the latest example of fake news it turns out that all the recent hype in much of the mainstream media about teens being able to hack state election systems were untrue. The details of what actually happened were revealed in a CNBC article on Friday by Lilia Chang, "No, a teen did not hack a state election."  Among the MSM outlets hyping the teenage hacker story were Politico Magazine and CNN. Of course, once it was revealed that no such hacking really took place they immediately issued corrections to their original fables... I kid! As of this writing no...

  • Venezuela pegging its economic recovery to a cryptocurrency that’s widely considered a scam

    Venezuela is doing something completely unprecedented. Some even say illegal. As part of an attempt to stop skyrocketing inflation, the country is issuing a new fiat currency called the "sovereign bolivar," which will be backed by a cryptocurrency. But that cryptocurrency, called the "petro," does not trade, and Venezuela's own parliament says it's being illegally used to mortgage the nation's cash-strapped oil reserves. "This is a smoke-and-mirrors operation typical of Venezuela — I'll believe it when I see it," said Steve Hanke, professor of applied economics at Johns Hopkins University and one of the world's leading experts on hyperinflation. "The...

    • "We have to realize that perhaps China isn't as strong as when we at first think. China is still figuring out also how to deal with this trade situation, how to ensure the stability of its domestic economy," said Curtis Chin, an Asia fellow at the Milken Institute. • Speaking to CNBC's "Squawk Box," Chin also "totally" disagreed with the view that U.S. President Donald Trump's policies are backfiring. China's power may have been overrated and the U.S. economy is staying strong, meaning that U.S. President Donald Trump has an advantage in the trade war, according to one expert....

    She tried. Oh, how she tried but she just couldn't pull it off. I mean, how do you spin negativity on a great July Jobs report that revealed unemployment had fallen to a mere 3.9% rate?  Sara Eisen, the co-host of CNBC's Squawk on the Street lamely attempted on Friday to see dark tidings in the bright report but even she had to concede that overall things looked good in the economy. So why her negativity? Could it have been that she wanted to spare the feelings of Mika Brzezinski to whom she was delivering her report on Morning Joe? Reporting...

    Rick Santelli, the CNBC analyst whose glorious rant led to the creation of the Tea Party movement, created another memorable TV moment today. On Meet the Press, reacting to reports that the Russians were happy on Election Night because Trump won, Santelli said to Andre Mitchell: “on Election Night, I never saw you so unhappy. You pick sides. Everybody picks sides.” An indignant Mitchell, protecting her [illusory] reputation for objectivity, shot back: “That’s not true, Rick. That’s just not true.” Sure, Andrea.

    CNBC "News" ^ | July 16, 2018 | John Harwood
    Trump faces political and legal jeopardy from the Justice Department investigation of his 2016 campaign and Russia. Against that backdrop, comments that Republican Sen. Ben Sasse called “bizarre” make sense: Trump spoke most emphatically in discrediting the Mueller investigation. Former CIA Director John Brennan condemned Trump’s words as “nothing short of treasonous.” Others, in less provocative terms, joined in harsh denunciations. President Trump’s stunning news conference with Vladimir Putin becomes understandable once you recognize that he was advancing his personal interests, not those of the United States. Trump faces political and legal jeopardy from the Justice Department investigation of his...

    A reporter was forcibly removed from the President Trump and Vladimir Putin presser in Helsinki, Finland Monday morning after he reportedly brought a sign into the meeting. The journalist, identified by CNBC as Sam Husseini, an op-ed reporter with progressive publication The Nation, was initially asked by security to exit the press room, and he obliged, according to CNN. When he was brought back into the room to retrieve his things, he reportedly claimed he got the boot because of a sign that talked about the nuclear test ban treaty. CNBC reports the sign — which read “Nuclear Weapon Ban...
  • Federal judge clears AT&T's $85 billion bid for Time Warner with no conditions

    AT&T announced that it was buying Time Warner for $85.4 billion in October 2016. The Justice Department sued last year to block the merger, citing concerns that AT&T, owner of satellite television provider DirecTV, could charge rival distributors more for Time Warner content, resulting in higher prices for consumers. The outcome of the trial could have implications for future deals in the telecom and media industries, as well as vertical mergers, where companies combine with their suppliers. A federal judge said Tuesday that AT&T's $85.4 billion purchase of Time Warner is legal, clearing the path for a deal that gives...

    (CNSNews.com) -- Criticizing some of the liberal media's coverage of the U.S-North Korea summit on denuclearization, President Donald Trump said "Fake News" outlets NBC and CNN are trying to "downplay" the summit, a deal they would have praised a year ago, and added that America's "biggest enemy is Fake News," which is "so easily promulgated by fools!" In a June 13 tweet, the president wrote, "So funny to watch the Fake News, especially NBC and CNN. they are fighting hard to downplay the deal with North Korea." "500 days ago they would have 'begged' for this deal -- looked like...

    A Rolling Stone writer speculated on Twitter that First Lady Melania Trump could be the victim of spousal abuse by President Donald Trump, hence her recent public absence. Melania Trump has not made a public appearance since a five-day hospital stay in mid-May following surgery for a kidney condition. She will not travel with the president for the G7 summit in Quebec this week, and there are also no plans for her to join him in Singapore for his June 12 meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

    President Trump has chosen economist Larry Kudlow to replace Gary Cohn as his senior economic advisor and leader of the National Economic Council. Kudlow, best known for his time as a host on CNBC of "The Kudlow Report," will join the administration in the coming weeks. Cohn is leaving on good terms after disagreeing with the President on the implementation of tariffs. "This is Gary Cohn's last meeting in the Cabinet and of the Cabinet. He has been terrific. He may be a globalist but I still like him," Trump said last week. "And he is a globalist there's...

On Wednesday afternoon, Ratigan formally announced that he's running for Congress as a Democrat in New York's 21st congressional district, which encompasses several counties in the northern part of the state.

Last spring, Ratigan was hired by his former MSNBC colleague, Cenk Uygur, as a contributor to his Young Turks Network. Uygur said that Ratigan will...
