Social Security Trust estimates it needs a $46 trillion bailout to sustain the program

According to a new report sent by the Social Security Trustee Board to Congress a few weeks ago, the nation's primary retirement program may need a bailout of $46 trillion to sustain it going into the future. To picture how big $46 trillion is, imagine multiplying the current national debt by 130%, or multiplying the country's GDP by 300%. A few weeks ago the Board of Trustees of Social Security sent a form ...

6.5 million Americans paid Obamacare fine rather than pay for out of control medical premiums

For the tax year ending 2016, 6.5 million Americans felt it was cheaper to pay the Obamacare fine/tax than pay for spiraling out of control premiums.  Yet perhaps what is even more poignant is the fact that only 40% of low income Americans even bothered with applying for Federal subsidies to help pay for their medical costs. Thus proving that most people never wanted government controlled healthcare to begi ...

International community sees U.S. a much greater threat than both Russia and China

There is no denying that a large portion of the world sees the U.S. as having replaced the former Soviet Union as the biggest threat to world peace since the former Communist country's fall in 1991, but don't tell that to the politicians in Washington who feel their moral high ground is so great they can unilaterally intrude on the sovereignty of other nations contrary to international law.  And a new poll ...

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. Gox criminal trial is being led by Japanese prosecutors over in the Far East, this indictment is only the second major bust taking place in the U.S., and the first since the feds took down the Silk Road portal a few years ago. 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 ...

Germany threatens retaliation against the U.S. if Congress pushes through bill for more Russian sanctions

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 ...

Russia winning: U.S. companies comes together to lobby Washington about ending economic sanctions

For decades the U.S. has used economic sanctions as a 'stick' to try to coerce nations into ceding their wills to that of Washington's foreign policies.  But as alternatives to the dollar and to SWIFT have grown in the past 10-15 years, more and more countries held bondage to these sanctions have been able to bypass the dollar hegemonic system with the help of countries transitioning Eastward. Ever since th ...

Amazon may be forcing brick and mortar businesses to automate just to survive

There is a legitimate argument to be made that the rush towards automation for businesses like McDonalds, Lowe's, and Best Buy are intrinsically tied to new government policies pushing forth an unaffordable $15 minimum wage.  However, there may be an even greater need for brick and mortar businesses to replace human labor with automation and that is from the sheer need to get much leaner in order to survive ...

Following Syrian cease-fire agreement with Putin, Trump orders an end to Obama policy of arming terrorists in region

In the final days of the G20 meeting earlier this month, President Trump concluded an agreement with Russian President Vladimir Putin to begin a cease-fire in certain regions of Syria.  And while the Neo-cons and liberal warmongers in Congress went into apoplexy over this, there was little they could do since America's occupation in Syria was really a grey area given that no declaration of war had ever been ...
