    The chairman of the City Councils 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 mayors 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 mayors 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 Clintons 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.Heres a brief documentary on Soros. Clintons 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 McCarricks 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...
  • Nevada governments on the hook for over $600M in paid time off

    Taxpayers potentially owe almost $610 million to local government employees in Nevadas two most populous counties for their unused paid time off, financial reports show. That liability grew 26 percent from 2007 to 2017, and it doesnt represent compensation that will be paid exclusively for rest, relaxation, illness or personal time. Many of Nevadas 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 couldnt 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...

Warren earned over half of the couples combined income during those years, even without counting her Senate salary....

    Chinese state-owned firm winning contracts to print foreign currencies as country seeks to expand global reach and influence China is printing foreign currencies on a massive scale as Beijing seeks to increase its influence on the world economy and geopolitics. Multiple sources in the China Banknote Printing and Minting Corporation confirmed to the South China Morning Post last month that money production plants across the country were running at near full capacity to meet an unusually high quota set by the government this year. Most of the demand comes from participants in the Belt and Road Initiative and one source,...

    Foreigners are to be banned from buying homes in New Zealand after a spate of millionaires seeking luxury doomsday boltholes has apparently crowded out local buyers and pushed up property prices. Following purchases by rich expats, including tech billionaire Peter Thiel - PayPal founder and early Facebook investor - and disgraced former NBC host Matt Lauer, who lost his job after allegations of sexual misconduct - the New Zealand government is preparing to crack down on the trend. New Zealand's allure for the mega-rich planning a safe space to ride out the apocalypse has become almost a cliche in recent...

    **SNIP** The Los Angeles Theater Center was decked out Thursday like a trade show for left politics. Booths featuring community organizers, single-payer healthcare enthusiasts, and direct action groups like Occupy ICE handed out literature and chatted up attendees. Off in the corner they were selling Ocasio-Cortez T-shirts, but community groups were far more prominent. Many of these groups met with Ocasio-Cortez that morning at a breakfast organizing meeting. When the program began, Ocasio-Cortez took a seat on stage while presenters spent an hour pitching the crowd of more than 500 on their projects. The Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment...

This 7-minute video is one of the best short explanations I've seen. And if the bondage in which this evil system keeps you fails to infuriate you, perhaps the unnecessary deaths of your kids in banker arranged wars will grab your attention. (Pause...Naaahhhh!) The Founding Fathers understood this evil fiat currency system and...
