    Sandy knows best. Committed Socialist and Democrat Party mouthpiece Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) went off on the American capitalist system on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. Ocasio Cortez has warped ideas on the success of Socialism. A trip to Venezuela is warranted for this one. During her talk with The Atlantic’s Ta-Nehisi Coates Ocasio-Cortez trashed the US system despite its unprecedented success in world history. Completely blind to history and the world around her Ocasio-Cortez continues to promote Marxist ideology. This is the modern day Democrat Party. Ocasio-Cortez likes to wrap up her conceit and ignorance as compassion. FOX...

    by Jessica Huseman March 20, 2017, 1:22 p.m. EDT Daniel Acker/Bloomberg via Getty Images Here’s how preparing your taxes could work: You sit down, review a prefilled filing from the government. If it’s accurate, you sign it. If it’s not, you fix it or ignore it altogether and prepare your return yourself. It’s your choice. You might not have to pay for an accountant, or fiddle for hours with complex software. It could all be over in minutes. It’s already like that in parts of Europe. And it would not be particularly difficult to give U.S. taxpayers the same option....

    **SNIP** Now the Sunrise Movement, likely the nation’s fastest-growing climate advocacy group, is planning a 14-stop tour meant to drum up grassroots support for a Green New Deal across multiple states, HuffPost has learned. It’s the first leg of the group’s effort to make the policy the defining issue of the 2020 election. “We’re launching the Road to a Green New Deal Tour to activate the millions of Americans who are ready to fight for a Green New Deal but haven’t heard of it yet,” Varshini Prakash, co-founder of Sunrise Movement, said by email. “When you come out to a...
  • House Democrats Are Lining Up Behind What Could Be The Largest Expansion Of Government In Decades

    Democrats are lining up to support Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal.” The proposal could be the largest expansion of government since the Great Society or New Deal. Ocasio-Cortez’s plan could cost tens of trillions of dollars. Democrats are increasingly lining up to support a “Green New Deal,” which, while vague on details, could end up being the largest expansion of government in decades. As it stands, the “Green New Deal” is more aspirational than actual policy. Indeed, it takes its name from the New Deal of the 1930s, and its main backer, incoming Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, compared...

    Raleigh, N.C. — The couple at the center of an international money laundering and murder-for-hire case appeared in federal court again on Tuesday morning in Raleigh. Investigators say Tanya and Leonid Teyf profited off a $150 million kickback scheme involving a contract with the Russian military and used the proceeds to purchase their multimillion-dollar mansion. Since December 2010, the couple opened at least 70 financial accounts at four different banks, and wire transfers show money coming into the couple’s bank accounts from countries known to launder money, including Belize, the British Virgin Islands, Panama and Seychelles. Investigators said the Teyfs...

Wall Street versus Main Street Bottom Line: U.S. companies who have actual connection to a growing U.S. economy can succeed; based on the advantages of the new economic environment and MAGA policy, specifically in the areas of manufacturing, trade and the ancillary benefactors.

    Fear, Power & Money: Alleged McCarrick Abuse Victim Shares Shocking Insights into Abuser’s Reign Abuse. Conspiracy. Hush money. Bribes. Power players. Politics. Global agendas. The threat of violence. These are some of the themes that James Grein, the alleged longtime abuse victim of former cardinal Theodore McCarrick, discussed with Dr. Taylor Marshall in a new podcast interview. Grein, who claims to have been abused by McCarrick for 18 years, beginning at age eleven, explained the close family connection he had with McCarrick – a connection that began even before he was born.“He had been part of the family,” says Grein,...

    This instinct to measure and compare doesn’t disappear once people have an obscene amount of money. “The problem is, Am I doing better than I was? is only [moving people in] one direction, which is up,” Norton says. And if a family amasses, say, $50 million but upgrades to a neighborhood where everyone has that much money (or more), they feel a lot less rich than if they had stuck to the peer comparisons they were making tens of millions of dollars ago. Hence the ever-shifting goalposts of wealth and satisfaction. The research Norton has conducted illustrating this phenomenon is...

    Republicans need to regain the offensive on the fiscal issues. The GOP has somehow allowed big-spending Democrats to get to the right of them on the issue of financial responsibility and balanced budgets. Polls show that Democrats are now more trusted on balancing the budget than Republicans. That's like losing an arm wrestling contest to Nancy Pelosi. The big first step for Republicans to regain American trust on fiscal responsibility is for President Donald Trump to deliver a nationally televised prime-time speech from the Oval Office to announce an all-hands-on-deck war on Washington waste. Declare a debt-spending emergency. If Americans...

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.

    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...
