    CNBC host Jim Cramer gave Massachusetts Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren an unintentional boost when he said that Wall Street executives are privately telling him that “She’s got to be stopped!” On Tuesday’s edition of CNBC’s Squawk on the Street, Cramer told co-hosts David Faber and Dominic Chu that Wall Street executives are quaking in their boots at the prospect of a Warren presidency. He began by talking about Wells Fargo’s struggle to find a new CEO. “I still wonder what it’s like to have no CEO. In the end, I know, Elizabeth Warren don’t listen, I favor...

  • Why Illinois can't balance its budget

    Daily Herald ^ | 6/20/2019 | Austin Berg
    Republicans and Democrats sang the same song at the Statehouse after rapidly passing the largest budget in state history: "It's balanced." Unfortunately, watchdogs couldn't offer much dissent in the moment. Lawmakers passed the 1,581-page document over the course of one weekend. In the absence of independent analysis, which takes more than a couple days to complete on a $40 billion spending plan, political rhetoric was rampant. It was all eerily familiar. In 2018, state lawmakers on both sides of the aisle claimed they had balanced the budget. But Illinois Policy Institute analysis had it out of whack by up to...
  • Buying U.S. Medications From Canada Is Not the Same As Importing Them

    The Trump Administration announced in July it will allow Americans to buy cheaper prescription drugs from Canada, including penicillin treatments for diabetes. Only one problem: Canada develops few drugs. Most that are used in the country actually come from multinational companies, mostly American. It is impossible to believe that drug companies will provide the gun to shoot themselves in the foot. Buying medications from Canada is not importing them, it is reimporting them - from the subsidiaries of multinational companies that are seen as the source of high prices. All that Americans are doing when they purchase penicillin and other...

    In an unexpected morning vote Tuesday, Republicans in the North Carolina House of Representatives pushed through an override of Governor Roy Cooper’s veto of the state budget. Rep. Deb Butler (D-New Hanover/Brunswick) strongly protested the move with a speech that led a man to turn off her microphone. When she could not keep the microphone on, Butler shouted at House Speaker Tim Moore for “usurping” the process.

    I imagine I’m not the only one this happened to, but still, you hate to see it happen at all. You express your support for Trump on a given issue, and an old friend or acquaintance dumps you. That’s how fiercely they oppose – or even despise – him. How do we best navigate these turbulent waters? Growing up in a small Jewish community on Long Island, most of my best friends were also Jewish. And like the majority of American Jews, most of those old friends are now liberal Democrats. And a few of those old friends – or...

    In an article published on the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, The New York Times decided to blame airplanes for taking down the World Trade Center, completely ignoring that it was terrorists who hijacked those planes. “Eighteen years have passed since airplanes took aim at the World Trade Center and brought them down,” reads the second paragraph in the piece titled “Remembering Those Lost 18 Years Ago on 9/11.” In fact, terrorism isn’t even mentioned in the article, except for in the subheading. To make matters worse, this is the section the NYT tweeted to promote the...
  • After Odessa Shooting, Support For Gun Control Is Declining

    We’re still reeling from a rather violent spate of mass shootings. El Paso, Texas Dayton, Ohio, and Odessa, Texas each saw some lunatic commit senseless acts of violence. Still, mass shootings are still rare. Violent crime is still down. And rifles still commit the smallest share of gun deaths. It’s well below 500. And yes, it’s a numbers game. It shouldn’t be, but the anti-gun Left decided to combine homicides with suicides to inflate the numbers and manufacture a narrative that the U.S. is a shooting gallery. It’s not. And neither are our schools, which have never been safer. Firearms...
  • Brian Stelter Mocked for Lame 'Gotcha' Tweet on Trump Rally Weather

    No sweat! Or so CNN's Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter must have thought when he victoriously tweeted about how President Donald Trump was supposedly completely wrong about weather conditions. Stelter seemed to forget that something other than rain can get people wet in the humid South, namely Fayetteville, North Carolina where Trump held a rally on Monday. First let us see Stelter's "gotcha" moment in which he thinks he caught the President in a lie only to be brutally shot down in a most mocking manner by those on Twitter who reminded him about what else could cause people waiting...

    These are the rules of the militant open borders media:If you are a self-declared Donald Trump-hating "activist journalist" who works for an ethnic separatist TV network that unapologetically elevates illegal immigrants over American citizens, you get to be a "moderator" at the next Democratic presidential candidates' debate.Case in point: Univision's Jorge Ramos.But if you are an activist journalist who exposes immigration anarchy, investigates the global financiers behind it and unapologetically defends American sovereignty, you are dismissed as a "conspiracy theorist" and "racist" who will never be allowed to pose counterbalancing questions at any national political forum.Case in point: Univision's Jorge...

    Today marks the 18th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, when Al Qaeda terrorists crashed planes into the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon, killing nearly 3,000 people. Or, as Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) likes to describe it, "some people did something." She used that description while speaking at an event for the Council of American-Islamic Relations in California. The full quote is below:"Here's the truth," she said. "For far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen. Frankly, I'm tired of it. And every single Muslim in this...

    California lawmakers passed a landmark bill on Tuesday that threatens to reshape how companies like Uber and Lyft do business. But shares of Lyft popped more than 5.8% on Wednesday morning, while Uber climbed more than 3.1% after California Gov. Gavin Newsom told the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday that he’s still engaged in talks with Uber, Lyft and other gig economy companies about possible negotiations around the bill. Newsom recently voiced his support for the bill. The legislation, known as Assembly Bill 5 (AB5), would require gig economy workers to be reclassified as employees instead of contractors. The bill...

    On Tuesday, nurse Jill Stanek described her experience in caring for a baby who survived an attempted abortion. Doctors in that case followed exactly the kind of infanticide practice Gov. Ralph Northam (D-Va.) so infamously described in a radio interview this past January. "When I heard Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, a pediatric neurologist, describe during an interview the process by which doctors determine to shelve unwanted newborns to die, it hit painfully home to me," Stanek testified before Congress on Tuesday. She quoted Northam: "If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen, the infant...

    Toymaker Hasbro is putting its own spin on the gender pay gap debate, on Tuesday announcing a new Monopoly game in which women players get more money than men. When "Ms. Monopoly" hits shelves starting this week, she will be the first character other than "Rich Uncle Pennybags" — the game's traditional mascot and described by Hasbro as Ms. Monopoly's uncle — to appear on the cover of the iconic board game. In a news release, Hasbro said that "while Mr. Monopoly is a real-estate mogul, Ms. Monopoly is an advocate whose mission is to invest in female entrepreneurs." Another...

    China just waived import tariffs on more than a dozen US goods. It's the first time Beijing has issued such exemptions since the US-China trade war began. The Chinese government issued tariff exemptions on 16 products, including shrimp, fish meal and cancer treatment drugs. Chinese importers can apply for a refund of tariffs already levied on 12 of the products. Four products, including whey, are eligible for the exemption but not for refunds. The exemptions will start September 17 and last for a year.

    The departure of National Security Adviser John Bolton from the Trump administration left everyone with a number of questions. First and foremost, did he quit or was he fired? If you’re asked to resign, that’s a little bit of both, right? We’ll probably have to wait for the next series of tell-all books to come out to have a better idea.But there’s one group of people who probably don’t care how it happened. They’re just glad to see him gone. No, I’m not talking about Tucker Carlson, who mysteriously claimed that Bolton was “fundamentally a man of the left”...
