President Trump dumps another Obama legacy item as he eliminates MyRa government retirement plan

Amongst all the chaos and duplicity that has come from Donald Trump during the first six months of his Presidency, the one big surety from his office has been to try to reverse many of the Socialist policies that Barack Obama and the Democratic Congress instituted on the American people to try to scam more money out of them.  And by this I mean Trump's order to stop the Obamacare fines that forced individua ...

Hypocrite Marxist Bernie Sanders to double down with American lives by nationalizing healthcare

Senator Bernie Sanders loves to call himself a Socialist, but the fact of the matter is he is a dyed in the wool Marxist.  And perhaps more importantly, he is a also a hypocrite. Bernie Sanders has never held a real job outside of public office, and until he took over as the Mayor of Burlington, VT in 1985 at the age of 40, he claimed publicly that he never had any money until that time. “I never had any mo ...

Feds bust individual tied to the collapse of two Bitcoin exchanges

Last week the U.S. Department of Justice indicted Alexander Vinnik on fraud and money laundering charges tied to not just one, but two Bitcoin exchanges.  And since the Mt.

This week, ...

Easy come, easy go: Amazon’s Jeff Bezos was the world’s richest man for just a few hours

ABC's Wide World of Sports used to say, 'The thrill of victory, and the agony of defeat' in their programming and perhaps that is what Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos felt earlier today when his rising stock value suddenly made him the richest man in the world (according to Forbes), only to have him fall back down to second place again after the company's failed earnings report showed the markets just how much of a ...

Another long-standing family tradition goes away as nearly half of all meals are eaten alone, and not at home

One of the most important traditions in the American household is going by the wayside as fewer and fewer families are coming together at the dinner table to have a family meal. According to new statistics by Bank of America on American eating habits, 43% of all meals are now eaten alone by individuals, and for the first time ever, more money from household budgets is being spent dining out than in purchasi ...

As banks charge higher interest rates on loans, businesses will be getting paid on deposits while individuals get the shaft

One of the primary reasons why banks stopped or severely curtailed paying interest on depositor accounts was because the Federal Reserve lowered interest rates to near zero percent following the 2008 finance crisis.  But with the central bank having raised them four times since December of 2015, these same banks have summarily increased the rates of interest they charge to borrowers while at the same time d ...

Italian leadership conducting serious debate over both leaving the Euro and the Eurozone

In the U.S., QE and ZIRP policies implemented by the Federal Reserve over the past nine years have resulted in a massive divide between the halves and have nots, and at a disparity not seen since just before the 1929 stock market crash.  In fact, since the central bank chose to backstop the banks and stock markets with tens of trillions of dollars of virtually free money, the wealth redistribution from the ...

If having U.S. businesses ready to lobby Congress to stop their fake indignation over Russia's protecting their own people and allies in Ukraine and Syria, it appears that Europe, and in particular Germany, have had enough of sanctions against Putin. In fact in light of Congress's new scheme to try to inflict a new round of Russian sanctions, and to hamstring President Trump from ever willingly removing the ...

U.S. government shows its true allegiance by submitting bill making it illegal to boycott imports from Israel

If anyone really believes that the U.S. actually has a working Constitution anymore, then they are sadly mistaken.  And whether it is the court supported destruction of the 4th Amendment through legislation such as the Patriot Act and Civil Forfeiture, the ability to override the 2nd Amendment in restricting firearms and other weapons, or the criminalization of the 1st Amendment in designating some verbal d ...

Syria appeals to United Nations to make the U.S. pay for the destruction their illegal war created

More and more it appears that the world is rejecting the U.S. and the Washington cabal that believes they have the right to intervene and on occasion overthrow any government they see fit to.  And whether it is Iraq's latest deal with Russia to purchase arms, or Qatar's move to integrate the Chinese RMB into their monetary system, decades of military and economic destruction in the Middle East has turned Am ...
