    President Trump has his first Democratic challenger in the 2020 presidential election: Rep. John Delaney of Maryland, who announced his bid Friday. "The current administration is making us less prosperous and less secure," Delaney wrote in an op-ed in the Washington Post on Friday. "I'm running because I have an original approach to governing and economic policy that can put us on a different course
  • Obama Under Fire From Liberals For Never Ending Luxury Vacations

    06/27/2017 4:15:22 PM PDT · by davikkm · 91 replies
    Former President Barack Obama is under fire from his Democrat base for taking never ending luxurious vacations since leaving office. Obama continues to embark on his endless mystery tour of millionaire and billionaire hotspots and retreats around the world. Ex-Presidents should go on vacation, but Obama seems to be flaunting a type of luxurious post-presidential lifestyle that would make the Kardashian’s blush. Democrat strategist, Pat Caddell, a former adviser to President Jimmy Carter, commented that Obama’s “trips are like the lifestyles of the rich and famous” and said that Obama’s vacations are “unprecedented, and a far cry from how Carter...

    Executive leadership coach Lolly Daskal has worked with hundreds of millionaires and billionaires. The secret to their success doesn't boil down to one specific habit, routine or personality trait, she tells CNBC: "The secret of the true billionaire is what's going on on the inside." "There's so much literature out there about how to succeed," she continues. "Most of the books talk about 'how': Do this and you will be that. But it doesn't work that way. We have it backwards. What we really need to do is to figure out who we are on the inside. We need to...
  • Worth(?) $30 Million Himself, Rock Guitarist Tom Morello Attacks the 'One Percent

    Tom Morello constructed a band dedicated to bashing capitalism, among other supposed “injustices.” But beware, Morello fans: this guitarist is, unsurprisingly, worth millions. Tom Morello, lead guitarist of Prophets of Rage and Rage Against the Machine, takes to Twitter constantly – though not necessarily to discuss his music (given the band’s taste for screaming and ear-ringing metallica, maybe this isn’t such a bad thing). In light of his loud adherence to the Resistance, Morello has an unquenchable penchant for the political.

    Property developer Gil Dezer owns 29 cars. And he plans to admire some of them from his couch in a swank Miami high-rise building, with the ocean in the background. Dezer is planning to park the cars IN his apartment. Miami's 60-floor Porsche Design Tower -- the first of its kind in the world -- has glass-enclosed elevators that bring sports cars up to the plush homes of their owners. The residential skyscraper, which has 132 units and opened in March, is the latest of several super-luxury buildings dotting the Miami coastline. But what if you don't own a Porsche?...

    The 3.5 million high-net-worth individuals located in the Asia Pacific region makes the market increasingly important for the luxury sector, as the affluent group's appetite for high-end continues to grow. Countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations are becoming an increasingly important part of consumerism in the luxury market. Countries that make up the association such as Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam are expected to become the fourth largest economy by 2020. “The ASEAN nations are part of a high-growth region where we are active in terms of member growth and hosting...

    Obama wanted to be Trump: Surely nothing in recent times matches the glaring hypocrisy of Barack Hussein Obama aspiring to be Donald J. Trump and coveting the riches that mark Trump’s lifestyle. “More than two decades before he railed against Donald Trump’s “temperament” and “core values,” a young Barack Obama dreamed of becoming the billionaire businessman.” (Fox News, May 3, 2017) And he almost did. Obama, with millions of dollars, left the U.S. presidency as a very rich man. The difference between millionaire and billionaire is only a matter of where the zeroes are put.

    On Wednesday, Fox News announced that it was parting ways with "The O'Reilly Factor" host Bill O'Reilly, whose ratings dominated the network. But due to a contract O'Reilly signed late last month, he'll be walking away with quite a sizable severance package. "It is a staggering amount," a source involved in the exit maneuverings told CNN Money. The outlet reported that Fox will pay O'Reilly "tens of millions of dollars." Due to a confidentiality agreement, 21st Century Fox and O'Reilly's representatives would not acknowledge the payout. But two well-placed sources told CNN Money that O'Reilly will be paid handsomely as...
  • Bernie Sanders Slams Billionaires, Gets Reminded He Owns 3 Houses

    04/21/2017 5:47:51 AM PDT · by Helicondelta · 33 replies
    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is having a difficult time with his latest tweet assailing the wealthy. First, Sanders, who ran a progressive presidential campaign criticizing Wall Street and the rich, tweeted out a message Thursday evening with what seems to be a typo, telling billionaires: "You can have it all." After deleting the initial tweet and replacing it with a new one, swapping "can" with "can't", Sanders was mercilessly mocked for questioning how yachts and cars billionaires need when he and his wife bought their third house — a $600,000 beachfront residence — in August.

    The Socialist senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders, set off a Twitterstorm yesterday with a tweet that was hard to believe. We are living in a nation which worships wealth rather than caring for the poor. I don't think that is the nation we should be living in.— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) March 18, 2017 Needless to say, this towering hypocrisy did not go unnoticed in the Twitterverse: @BernieSanders Says the man who owns 3 homes one which cost over $600,000. I'm guessing you have homeless people you're housing? Do as I say, not as I do?— lc65265 (@lc65265) March 18,...

    The White House doors may have closed on former President Barack Obama’s presidency, but for him and his wife Michelle, the path to lucrative new book deals and paid speeches is wide open. The Obamas recently hired top-dollar attorneys Robert Barnett and Deneen Howell to handle their book contracts, and a high-profile public relations agency — known for repping the Clintons and Mia Farrow — to coordinate speaking appearances. The Obamas haven’t yet set book-release dates or announced any scheduled speeches. The Harry Walker Agency, which exclusively represents former President Bill Clinton, former Secretary-General of the United Nations Kofi Annan,...

    Clinton’s fallout is interestingly causing an internal revolution among Hillary’s big donors. At her New York bash to “thank” her big donors of $1 million or more, she took no blame and pointed the finger at Comey and Putin. Her spin did not work and she has lost a lot of credibility according to confidential sources. They were smart enough to realize that even if Russia “hacked” the DNC and Podesta emails, there would be no release if there had been no wrongdoing to begin with. Now Clinton’s biggest backers want a “campaign autopsy,” which could expose Clinton’s entire operation....

Hillary Clinton is holding a 'thank you' event for heavy-hitter donors in NYC on Dec 15. The party is for campaign 'bundlers' who helped Clinton raise $1 billion in her failed effort against Donald Trump,...

    Donald Trump brushed away criticism after appointing a number of billionaires and millionaires to his administration by saying that he wants “people that made a fortune!” The president-elect compared his picks, which have the accumulative wealth of around $14.5 billion, to athletes during a speech at his ‘Thank You’ campaign rally on Thursday in Des Moines, Iowa. “A newspaper criticized me and said, ‘Why can’t they have people of modest means?'” He said to a crowd, Huffington Post reports. “Because I want people that made a fortune! Because now they are negotiating [for] you, OK?… It’s no different than a...

    Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine are throwing a party at the Plaza hotel on Dec. 15 to thank those who donated millions to the campaign. The party will be held in the Grand Ballroom on the third floor, to honor the Hillary for America finance leadership council. Guests expected are big bundlers including Harvey Weinstein, Anna Wintour, Alan Patricof, Tory Burch and Marc Lasry. One insider said, “Hopefully there’s no balconies so nobody can jump.” Unusually, Kaine is throwing his own holiday celebration in NYC earlier the same day.

    A drop in millionaires in Switzerland this year has failed to significantly dent the country’s impressive wealth, as a report by Credit Suisse declares it the richest country in the world yet again. The Global Wealth Report 2016, published on Tuesday by the Swiss bank’s Research Institute, said Switzerland had an average wealth per person of $561,900 in 2016, making Swiss adults 11 times richer than the average world citizen. However Switzerland’s average wealth in 2016 was slightly down on last year’s figure of $567,100. The country experienced the second biggest drop in wealth per adult behind the UK, meaning...

    Peter Thiel is putting his money where his mouth is. The billionaire PayPal cofounder is donating $1.25 million to Donald Trump's campaign, according to a source close to Thiel. Thiel has been a vocal supporter of Trump -- one of the most prominent in Silicon Valley. He spoke at the Republican National Convention and made history when he declared on stage that he was proud to be gay. Thiel's donation will be given through Super PACs and directly to Trump's campaign, according to the source. This is the first time Thiel will be donating to Trump. The donation was first...
