    "Elizabeth Warren is a hypocrite" These are the words of Ed Rendell, former Philly mayor, Pennsylvania governor and chair of the Democratic National Committee. At this moment, ahead of the Democratic Presidential's Primary Debate on Thursday, he is coming after Elizabeth Warren. His op-ed on Washington Post centers on the lead Democratic presidential hopeful, titled "I like Elizabeth Warren. Too bad she's a hypocrite." One of the reasons why Rendell believes Warren is...

    A high-speed transit system through the mountain corridor could serve as a major economic boon to communities on the Western Slope, according to a new study recently published by Development Research Partners. A high-speed transit system — likely in the form of a train that would carry passengers and light freight between Denver International Airport and Eagle County Regional Airport — was listed in the 2011 Record of Decision issued by the Colorado Department of Transportation and the Federal Highways Administration as a potential long-term solution to dealing with congestion on Interstate 70. Late last year, stakeholders — including the...
  • Warren’s fix for government corruption is to turn all power over to government

    Chief Elizabeth Warren, who lies constantly, has a plan to end corruption. Repeating her anti-government rhetoric, in a piece titled, END WASHINGTON CORRUPTION, Warren writes that big insurance companies and hospital conglomerates put profits ahead of the health and well-being of the American people, and dump piles of money into political campaigns and lobbying efforts to block any move toward Medicare for All. This comes from a woman who has no problem with unions and Planned Parenthood sinking a fortune into Democratic campaigns, including hers. She has no problem with their lobbyists or those of far-left groups. In order to...

    American Thinker ^ | 09/15/2019 | Fletch Daniels
    The leftstream media characterization of Joe Biden is that he is moderate, likable, and the most electable Democrat candidate.  He is affable Uncle Joe, the self-made lunchbox-toting common man of the people. In truth, he is none of the above. Joe the Moderate The "Biden as moderate" canard is getting increasingly hard to defend.  On the economy-, car-, and cow-killing $93-trillion Green New Deal, Biden was asked if it goes too far or is unrealistically promising too much. He answered, "No, no it's not." When previously asked if there would be any place for fossil fuels, including coal and fracking, in his administration, Biden answered,...

    Full Header: The Three Issues The Democratic Debate Decided To Gloss Over To Prevent Embarrassing The 2020 Field As members of the 2020 clown show debated last night, three questions remained off the docket. Granted, there was a lot of Trump-bashing, some intense moments where the candidates slung mud at one another, and the reiteration of trash left-wing policies. One thing is clear: there is not a single person on that stage last night who can beat Donald Trump. It’s not even close. For the three-hours this breakfast was on, we learned that Democrats want to increase taxes, have a...

    Recent polls reveal a downgrade in President Donald Trump's job approval rating on the economy and show he's trailing in head-to-head match-ups against the leading 2020 presidential election Democratic candidates, but a majority of U.S. business leaders believe, at least for now, that he will win reelection. More than two-thirds of North American chief financial officers surveyed by CNBC say Trump will win the 2020 election, while a quarter say former Vice President Joe Biden, according to the results of the latest CNBC Global CFO Council survey for the third quarter 2019.

    ... [A]mong all the Democratic taxers and takers, no one would hit retirees harder than Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Her “Accountable Capitalism Act” would wipe out the single greatest legal protection retirees currently enjoy—the requirement that corporate executives and fund managers act as fiduciaries on investors’ behalf. To prevent union bosses, money managers or politicians from raiding pension funds, the 1974 Employee Retirement Income Security Act requires that a fiduciary shall manage a plan “solely in the interest of the participants and beneficiaries . . . for the exclusive purpose of providing benefits to participants and their beneficiaries.” The Securities and...

    PITTSFIELD — Philip Lapointe currently works for a burger joint in Pittsfield but has previous experience in sales that he would like to put to good use. So, it's only natural that the 34-year-old Pittsfield resident would be interested in working for Wayfair, which is currently hiring sales and service consultants for its new Pittsfield call center. "I applied because they have strong wages and seem like an employee-oriented company," Lapointe said Wednesday as he left the MassHire Berkshire Career Center on North Street following an interview with Wayfair representatives. Lapointe has plenty of company in his job search. Wayfair,...

    More than 6.2 million individuals dropped off food stamps since President Donald Trump completed his first full month in office, according to the latest data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The most recent USDA data shows that 6,268,285 individuals discontinued their participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)— the program in charge of food stamps— since February 2017 when Trump finished his first month as president. Individual and household food stamp participation has consistently declined since 2013 back when the Obama administration was in power and enrollment in the program reached its highest point in U.S. history....

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this WINNING yet? – This damn Trump economy just will not cooperate with all the Democrats and their media toadies who keep rooting for a recession. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics jobs report released on Friday showed the Trump economy adding another 130,000 new jobs even as the economy approaches full employment. FED Chairman Jerome Powell called the report another sign of a growing and healthy economy, indicating that he sees no sign of any recession on the horizon. Democrats everywhere recoiled in horror.

From a president who ordering private companies to move out of other countries, a guy who's running up the biggest debt ever, some...

    Once upon a time in America a presidential campaign was decided on the phrase “Rum, Romanism & Rebellion.” It was not exactly true, but it worked. Now, 125 years after that controversial campaign and election, the slogan shaping up for Democrats running against Donald Trump is another Triple R — “Russia, Race & Recession.” None of that is exactly true, either

    Several offices within the Trump administration are studying a policy that would lower taxes for investments such as stocks and real estate, according to a senior administration official. The Treasury Department, the White House Office of Management and Budget, and the Council of Economic Advisers are studying the possibility of indexing capital gains to account for inflation, according to the senior official. The review includes a look at the distribution table for savings to investigate whether the reform would disproportionately benefit wealthy people who are able to invest more of their money.

    Doug Ogden doesn’t know what to do. The 75-year-old retired law enforcement officer is disgusted by President Donald Trump. But he can’t imagine voting for a Democrat in 2020, either. A self-described independent in South Carolina, Ogden doesn’t recognize the modern-day Democratic Party. “The state of the Democratic Party is wild against wilder,” says Ogden, standing with his arms crossed at a recent town hall meeting for Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg. “It scares me.” At the core of Ogden’s concern is a broader question about the direction of the Democratic Party and its values in the age of Trump....

Kay Ivey joined executives of DaikyoNishikawa US (DNUS) and local leaders at a groundbreaking event to officially launch construction on the auto supplier’s $110 million manufacturing plant in North Alabama.

The groundbreaking ceremony was held at the site on the MTMUS campus where construction crews are poised to begin work on DNUS’ first U.S. manufacturing plant. “I’m proud to welcome another great Japanese company, DaikyoNishikawa, to Sweet Home Alabama, and I know that...

The campaign is taking to the skies on Labor Day to fly banners over beach-goers to show its thanks for workers fueling the economy. “Labor Day is the perfect time to thank American workers for everything they do for our country,” said Tim Murtaugh, Trump campaign communications director. “Under President Trump’s policies, the economy is strong and growing, and more Americans are working than ever before.
