    The term "millionaire" once inferred that a person was part of society's upper crust, able to enjoy luxuries most only dreamed of, including vacation properties and early retirement. The Gilded Age of the 1980s was all about flaunting excess, as echoed in movies like The Wolf of Wall Street and television series like Dallas and Dynasty. Back then one was perceived to be "rich" if he or she had an income of around $100,000, according to a USA Today article released on May 22, 1987. How Many Millionaires Are There in the U.S.? By 1989, American millionaires had become quite...
  • Michael Bloomberg Isn’t Really Running For President, And That Should Worry You

    The Federalist, ^ | January 29, 2020 | Christopher Bedford
    The staff, the ad spending, the campaigning -- Michael Bloomberg was going to do all of this to defeat President Donald Trump already. Doing it as a 'candidate' excempts him from limits on PACs and political donations. There is very good reason to believe Michael Bloomberg isn’t actually running for president.Of course, there is plenty of evidence to the contrary. For one, he declared he is. He’s also hired more than 1,000 staff and is still expanding, offering salaries far above campaign averages. This week, he became the first of the declared candidates to have campaigned in all 14 states...

    Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) and Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) on Thursday rolled out a proposal for a “millionaires surtax,” amid a growing interest from Democrats in increasing taxes on the wealthy. “This is a bill designed to address two major problems of public policy: the lack of revenue, and inequality,” Beyer said on a call with reporters. “It’s a laser-focused solution that requires those who benefited the most from the economy to contribute in a way they simply haven’t been asked to before.” The lawmakers’ bill, which is being co-sponsored by Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), would create a 10-percentage...
  • Trump Jr:I Wish I Was Like Hunter Biden So I Could Make Millions Off of My Father’s Presidency

    Donald Trump Jr., a man who shares the same name as the President of the United States and is currently the executive vice president of the Trump Organization, said with a straight face on Wednesday night that he wished his name was Hunter Biden so he could “make millions off my father's presidency.” During an appearance on Fox News’ Hannity to hawk his upcoming book Triggered, Trump Jr. quickly turned his sights on the impeachment inquiry his father is currently facing. After Trump Jr. called it a “sham” and claimed “the reasonable people in the middle” support his dad, Sean...
  • Hi tech entrepreneur’ Andrew Yang not rich enough to buy a modest home in Silicon Valley

    American Thinker ^ | 09/20/2019 | Thomas Lifson
    Andrew Yang is widely identified as a “hi tech entrepreneur,” leading many people (including me) to assume that he is worth many millions of dollars, and independently wealthy. That made sense considering his plan to give a thousand bucks a month (borrowed, of course) to everyone (and it’s not clear to me if legal or illegal aliens qualify).But according to information in this column by James Freeman in the Wall Street Journal, he isn’t more than middle class, at least by the standards of Silicon Valley.  Julie Bykowicz reported in the Journal in May: Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang, a self-described...

    An interesting new angle has emerged in the Jeffrey Epstein case. In August, the New York Times offered the following tidbit from Epstein. Mr. Epstein then meandered into a discussion of other prominent names in technology circles. He said people in Silicon Valley had a reputation for being geeky workaholics, but that was far from the truth: They were hedonistic and regular users of recreational drugs. He said he’d witnessed prominent tech figures taking drugs and arranging for sex (Mr. Epstein stressed that he never drank or used drugs of any kind). Back then, the Times was looking into Epstein's...
  • REPORT: Obamas Buying $15 Million Martha’s Vineyard Mansion

    08/22/2019 10:40:51 AM PDT · by mplc51 · 124 replies
    It sure pays to be a DC grifter. The Obamas are reportedly purchasing a 29-acre, 7,000 square foot $14.85 million mansion in Martha’s Vineyard. The home is currently owned by Boston Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck. The Martha’s Vineyard estate (pictured below) was previously listed for $22 million, but the Obamas are paying less than the current listing price according to “multiple island sources.”

    Sanders’ Song: ‘Leave It To Us Millionaires’ ‘Sanders on Steyer’s 2020 bid: ‘Tired of seeing billionaires trying to buy political power’. (The Hill, July 8, 2019) LOL! From Senator Bernie Sanders, whose Golden Rule seems to be it’s A-Okay to be a millionaire, but not a billionaire. Millionaires and billionaires have been trying to buy political power down through millennia—and sometimes enrich Socialist hangers-on like Bernie Sanders, who “somehow’ ended up with two mansions when he ran in DNC primaries back in 2016.

    Gloria Vanderbilt left almost all of her estate to her youngest son, Anderson Cooper — and nothing to her estranged middle son, Chris Stokowski, according to her will. The document, filed Monday in Manhattan surrogate court, says the recently deceased socialite fashion icon’s eldest son Leopold “Stan” Stokowski will get her Midtown pad in a co-op at 30 Beekman Place, but “all the rest” of her property goes to the CNN host. Vanderbilt — the great-great-great-granddaughter of railroad tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt — died June 17at age 95 after being diagnosed with advanced stomach cancer.

    Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders announced he will release 10 years of his tax returns and revealed he is a millionaire thanks to his best-selling book 'Our Revolution.' 'I wrote a best-selling book,' he told The New York Times. 'If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too.' Sanders said he would release his returns by Tax Day on Monday and said he hoped President Donald Trump would do the same. 'On the day in the very immediate future, certainly before April 15, we release ours, I hope that Donald Trump will do exactly the same. We...

    Cuomo says only ‘very rich people’ can afford to drive into Manhattan By Carl Campanile April 4, 2019 | 9:46pm | Updated April 4, 2019 | 11:37pm Gov. Andrew Cuomo defended congestion pricing on Thursday, saying most motorists won’t be affected because only “very rich people” can afford to drive into Manhattan. “Outer-borough residents are not driving their cars into Manhattan. That’s not how they come in,” Cuomo said at the Association for a Better New York. “I’m a Queens boy. Only very rich people can drive into Manhattan. You have to pay the toll. You have to pay parking...

    The largest donors on the left will be given a 'private briefing on investigations' into President Donald Trump by House Jud. Committee chairman 'Jerrold Nadler' during a 'secretive' Texas gathering this week, according to documents obtained exclusively by the Washington Free Beacon. 'The Democracy Alliance', a group of millionaire and billionaire funders of the liberal movement,is holding its Spring Partner Retreat and Strategy Conference at the Four Seasons hotel in Austin, where security has been patrolling the meeting areas since Wednesday. As always at the group's secretive meetings, all programming is off the record and closed to members of the...

    Zion Williamson is about to get paid. Long before he steps on an NBA court, the projected No. 1 overall pick in June's NBA draft is expected to land a sneaker endorsement deal that will make him far richer than his first NBA contract will. In fact, many in the sneaker industry expect that Williamson's eventual deal will make him one of the three highest-paid rookie sneaker endorsers ever, joining the likes of LeBron James and Kevin Durant. "In my lifetime, I think it's going to be the biggest bidding war ever done," said Sonny Vaccaro, the famed former marketing...

    Morrie Tobin was in Boston to cut the deal of his life. It was early April last year. A few weeks before, federal agents had descended on the multimillion-dollar home Tobin shares with his wife and some of their six children in Hancock Park, a moneyed Los Angeles enclave. Warrant in hand, the agents searched the French chateau-style mansion for financial records and other evidence to nail Tobin, the suspected ringleader of a stock scam that defrauded investors of millions of dollars. The raid imploded Tobin’s very comfortable life. Faced with the prospect of years in prison and a seven-figure...

    Another scandal for the "scandal-free" Obama administration. Not all ICE targets work construction or smuggle drugs. Some are key figures in the Dem machine. But the era of Obama corruption is over. There's a new sheriff in town. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) this week arrested two millionaire fugitives from Ecuador whose family donated heavily to American political campaigns. Roberto and William Isaías, 74 and 75, were detained Wednesday in Miami and taken to a detention facility for undocumented immigrants awaiting deportation, The New York Times reported Friday. ICE told the Times that the brothers were “unlawfully present” in...

    ALBANY — A millionaire walks into the State Capitol and says, “Raise my taxes.” Please. This was no joke: The millionaire was Morris Pearl, a former BlackRock executive who is the chairman of Patriotic Millionaires, a group dedicated to pushing for higher taxes on businesses and the ultrarich. Testifying on Tuesday at a state budget hearing, Mr. Pearl asked a bipartisan group of about half a dozen legislators to create a new “multimillionaire’s tax” on households earning more than $5 million a year in order to fund new affordable housing, infrastructure and schools. “I’m a person of some means.

There will be a state funeral for George H.W. Bush on Wednesday at the Washington National Cathedral, and a memorial service for the former president will be held on Thursday in Houston.

    RUSH: Bob McNair, the owner of the Houston Texans, passed away on Friday, I believe. I only met him one time on the golf course. I didn’t know him at all. He had been battling melanoma and I think leukemia for 20 years. Two or three years ago they thought that he had gone into remission and was cancer free. But he succumbed to the disease. He was 81. He was a genuinely self-made guy. He was born in Tampa and arrived in Houston with 700 bucks in his pocket. This is a true story. He got to Houston during...
