    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) announced on Instagram Wednesday night that she has remarried, posting a picture flashing rings with her political strategist, Tim Mynett, with whom she previously denied having an affair. What are the details? "Got married! From partners in politics to life partners, so blessed," Omar wrote along with the picture on Instagram, adding, "Alhamdulillah." Omar's friend Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) reacted by writing, "Alf Mabrook sis. So happy for you." The apparent nuptials happened last week, according to the Daily Mail, which has covered Omar's relationship history closely. The outlet reported last month that Omar and Mynett...

    [Catholic Caucus] Big Troubles: Now, Francis’ Much Praised “Poverty” Becomes a Reality Father Juan Guerrero, the Prefect of the Vatican Secretariat for the Economy, sent a May 8 letter asking all dicasteries of the Roman Curia to move their money to the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See (APSA).In other words: The money of the Roman Curia must exclusively be kept in the APSA, the Vatican investment bank, not in foreign financial institutions, not even in the Vatican Bank.The letter was published on (July 7). It implies according to Tosatti that the Holy See “is in desperate...
  • Biden's record-setting tax increases will take your money - and your job

    In 2016, Hillary Clinton ran for president proposing $1 trillion in tax increases. Would President Trump’s blue-collar boom ever have gotten off the ground with such a back-breaking tax burden? But now, four years later, former vice president Joe Biden thinks he has a better idea. In his third run for the White House, Biden is proposing tax increases of nearly $4 trillion over the next 10 years. If he wins in November and these increases were to pass, they’d be the highest in American history - indeed, in world history. President Trump’s 2017 tax reform cut taxes for corporations,...

    I apologize for the vanity post but wanted to take a minute to get Freepers to give a shout out for a candidate or incumbent they're supporting this fall? as many of you know, I'm a firm believer in EMILY (Early Money is Like Yeast). Yeah, I know. i ripped it off from the Democrat's PAC. But their point is correct. Early Money helps make a candidate viable - even in mid June. I want to give all Freepers a chance to give a major shout out for a candidate worthy of financial support this year. If you can, also...

    On May 12, 1703, the Russian army under Peter the Great captured an important Swedish fort on the Baltic Sea called Nyenskans.It was a major victory for Peter in his war against the Swedish Empire. Russia was a rising power in the early 1700s, but Peter was in critical need of a Baltic seaport to be able to trade with the rest of Europe.The capture of Nyenskans was so important that Peter decided to move his capital there. And he renamed it Saint Petersburg.Technically he called it “Sankt-Pieter-Burch,” which is a Dutch/German spelling of the name; Peter made tremendous efforts...

  • EXCLUSIVE: Black Lives Matter Donations Go to ‘Act Blue’ And Biden Campaign

    The National Pulse can reveal the Black Lives Matter website – the organization spearheading nationwide “defund the police” campaigns – is partnered with ActBlue, a Democrat fundraising platform that is the top donor to Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, responsible for raising nearly 99.64 percent of the Biden for President effort. While the Biden campaign insists it doesn’t support efforts to defund the police, it may happily profit from Black Lives Matter (BLM) efforts, and is complicit in taking money from an organization partnered with those spearheading the dangerous policy that has already taken root in Minneapolis, New York, and...

    Corporations are opening up their treasuries to give money to social justice causes, including Black Lives Matter, in the wake of nationwide protests and riots over the death of George Floyd.

    Can someone answer!!! All this money that is being donated from all the corporations, people, etc. Who will be handling this money? Is it Al Sharpton? How much will Floyd's family receive? And I wonder how much of this money will be used for helping the black community or will it be for the 2020 election. Any thoughts! Hope someone investigates this.

    Authorities in Massachusetts confiscated a large sum of cash from a man at Logan Airport after he rebooked a missed flight. According to reports, after being questioned by various security and law officers, the man claimed to be carrying wildly different amounts of money. According to a post on the Massachusetts State Police Facebook page, the suspect had booked a flight at Logan Airport this past weekend but missed it. He reportedly booked a second flight on the same day. The man’s specific destination has not been revealed, but authorities have identified it as a “source area for illegal narcotics.”...

    Governor Newsom is behind in the Most Loathsome Governor in America race, largely because he hasn't managed to kill as many nursing home residents as rivals like Cuomo and Murphy. But here he is trying to take first responders hostage. California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) told CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday that the federal government has a "moral obligation" to provide funding for states in its next coronavirus relief bill, noting that police officers, health care workers and firefighters will be the first ones laid off as a result of massive budget deficits. Really?Cops and firefighters are the most...

    All the happy-story analogies to past pandemics being mere bumps in the road miss the mark. A popular claim is that the 1918-1919 flu pandemic killed millions but no biggie, the Roaring 20s started the following year. It's onward and upward, baby, once we toss the masks. Wrong. Completely, totally, dead wrong. The drivers of the past 75 years of growth-- globalization and financialization--are dead, and so is everything that depended on them for "growth". (Growth is in quotes because once external costs and currency arbitrage are factored in, most of what's been glorified as "growth" is nothing but losses...

    The worst part about spending $6 trillion or more on coronavirus recovery isn't what's in it. The worst part is what happens if it doesn't destroy us. (snip) --- The issue of our constitutional rights being suppressed is a huge one, but it’s not the biggest. I know what you’re thinking… “How can you say it’s not the biggest?!?!?!” Don’t get me wrong. It’s definitely huge. But it’s not nearly as destructive to the United States of America as the little-known consequence of all of these bailout bills, including the proposed $3 trillion bill Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi...

    Everybody wants a baseball season. Nobody knows quite how that will look amid the coronavirus pandemic. Those are the only certainties for a sport that has an unbroken chain of seasons with at least 100 games stretching back to the 19th century. But as more and more hopeful hints have emerged this week — from Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the nation’s leading expert on infectious diseases, and from Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York, who both publicly touted the feasibility of playing in empty ballparks — a distressing backdrop still looms: If teams cannot sell tickets, how much will...

    Old enough to drive a car? Then you would be old enough to receive $2,000 a month under a plan introduced this week by two Democratic lawmakers in the House of Representatives. Under the Emergency Money for the People Act, US citizens who are 16 or older — and make less than $130,000 a year — would receive cash payments from the federal government for at least six months and until unemployment falls to pre-pandemic levels. The bill was introduced Tuesday by Rep. Tim Ryan, a former presidential candidate associated with the moderate wing of the Democratic Party, and Rep....

    I'm like most Freepers, I work, still have a job for now, and I save money to a 401k, IRA. My money is still right where it is when this current crash started, but a lot less of it. The US debt is out of control and with these corona virus mega spending bills there is no way that the US will ever come out of debt. One day, the US economy will in fact crash from this mounting debt, it's inevitable given we are not deviating from our path. And when it all comes down it will make the...
