    I assume that next year the Democrats who run the House will refuse to appropriate sufficient money for: 1. the military; 2. Immigration and Customs Enforcement; 3. border enforcement generally, including restrictions on immigration from countries that send people who we cannot vet; 4. enforcement of various Trump Executive Orders, including one that denies automatic U.S. Citizenship to children of illegal aliens born in the U.S.; 5. U.S. Government litigation in defense of programs and policies that the Democrats do not like; 6. grants and loans to, and other cooperation with Israel; 7. enforcement of sanctions against Iran; 8. enforcement...

    They say that “money talks’. But in election campaigns money just doesn’t talk, it screeches and screams and does squats on your face. The biggest irony of Midterm Elections 2018 unvetted by mainstream and social media is that Democrats, who masquerade in office as virulent anti-capitalists, are running for election and reelection as bona fide CAPITALIST PIGS. Senator Elizabeth Warren may have gone out of her way to display DNA proof showing she’s a minuscule 1/1024th Native American, but hides that her campaign has raised $34.5 million.

    Mises Institute ^ | 10/29/2018 | Thorsten Polleit
    President Donald J. Trump has taken on the Federal Reserve (Fed), saying that Fed chairman Jerome H. Powell is threatening US economic growth by further raising interest rates. Mainstream economists, the financial press and even some politicians react with indignation: the president’s comments undermine the Fed’s political independence, potentially endangering the confidence in the US dollar. Such a public reaction is, at first glance, understandable – as mainstream economists have declared the political independence of the central bank a "golden calf" issue. Monetary theorists argue that a politically independent central bank is best for the currency and the economy. As...

    The chairman of the City Council’s Black Caucus is purging himself of a surprise, $20,000 contribution from Mayor Rahm Emanuel amid concern that it might damage his chances of winning re-election. Instead of keeping the money and putting the windfall into his campaign fund, Ald. Roderick Sawyer (6th) is distributing the mayor’s check — in $2,000 increments –– to ten community organizations and other groups in his ward that are working to stop the never-ending cycle of gang violence and train people for jobs. The alderman said he appreciated the mayor’s gesture and means no disrespect. But he was concerned...

    People who are in the know, have probably seen the following video and heard failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s introduction of George Soros at the “Take Back America Conference” in June 2004. However, for those who have not, this might be an eye opener as not only does Clinton introduce Soros, but claims that we need men like him who are “fearless” and willing to “step up” when it counts. She is obviously indicating that he should get involved in the American political process, which he has done with billions of dollars.Here’s a brief documentary on Soros. Clinton’s comments begin...

    UTAH (NBC) - Kids do the darndest things, especially this next kid who shredded an envelope full of cash! Ben Belnap is a huge Utah Utes football fan. When his parents bought him season tickets, he and his wife Jackee decided to pay them back. So, they saved up enough cash and put it in an envelope to give to them in person. This past weekend, though, the envelope disappeared. After tearful consideration, she realized her son Leo had shredded the money, totaling more than $1,000! Luckily, they could get it all back through a Government department dedicated to mutilated...

    First Things ^ | September 28, 2018 | Matthew B. O'Brien
    On July 28, 2018 the Vatican announced that Pope Francis had accepted Archbishop Theodore McCarrick’s resignation from the College of Cardinals. This had the immediate effect of ending his nearly thirty-year relationship with the Papal Foundation, a charitable organization he helped to found, which is based in suburban Philadelphia and has an endowment of $200 million.  As an ex officio member of the board of cardinals which controls the Foundation, McCarrick advocated and voted four times to approve an extraordinary, expedited grant of $25 million to the Vatican, in order to help it bail out a scandal-plagued dermatology hospital that...

    The heat Nike has taken over its controversial advertising campaign featuring former NFL start Colin Kaepernick seems to have had another effect: burnishing the iconic brand's appeal to investors. Nike shares have surged 36 percent on the year, making the company the top performer on the Dow's index of 30 blue-chip stocks. The run-up includes a nearly 5 percent increase since Nike's Labor Day announcement that Kaepernick would be featured in its campaign, adding nearly $6 billion to the company's market value. The stock continues to hover near an all-time high, which it reached in mid-September only weeks after some...

    Taxpayers potentially owe almost $610 million to local government employees in Nevada’s two most populous counties for their unused paid time off, financial reports show. That liability grew 26 percent from 2007 to 2017, and it doesn’t represent compensation that will be paid exclusively for rest, relaxation, illness or personal time. Many of Nevada’s public employees can stockpile their sick and vacation hours and cash them out at retirement. Some of those payouts exceed $100,000.

    Carl Jensen experienced what he calls “the awakening” sometime around 2012. He was a software engineer in a suburb of Denver, writing code for a medical device. The job was high-pressure: He had to document every step for the Food and Drug Administration, and a coding error could lead to harm or death for patients. Mr. Jensen was making about $110,000 a year and had benefits, but the stress hardly seemed worth it. He couldn’t unwind with his family after work; he spent days huddled over the toilet. He lost 10 pounds. After one especially brutal workday, Mr. Jensen Googled...

    A federal appeals court on Tuesday said printing “In God We Trust” on U.S. currency is constitutional, citing its longstanding use and saying it was not coercive. The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Paul, Minnesota rejected claims by 29 atheists, children of atheists and atheist groups that inscribing the national motto on bills and coins violated their First Amendment free speech and religious rights.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s personal income has risen substantially since she entered the Senate in 2013, according to 10 years of tax return documents her campaign released Wednesday. The Massachusetts Democrat and her husband, Harvard Law School professor Bruce Mann, earned a combined adjusted gross income of nearly $5.4 million from 2013 to 2017, according to their tax returns — a 42 percent increase from the couple’s combined income of almost $3.8 million in the five years prior to Warren’s ascension to Congress. Warren earned over half of the couple’s combined income during those years, even without counting her Senate salary....

    Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute (GAI), explained how former FBI Directors James Comey and Robert Mueller leveraged their government positions for self-enrichment. He joined his colleague Seamus Bruner, a GAI researcher, to discuss the latter’s forthcoming book, Compromised: How Money and Politics Drive FBI Corruption, in a Friday interview with Sean Hannity. Hannity opened the interview with questions: “How is it all of these politicians have become filthy rich? They’re supposed to be public servants. Where does the money come from? What are the conflicts of interest?” Hannity drew from Bruner’s new book, “James Comey’s net worth...
