    For several years, Live Action News has researched and published the facts regarding the abortion pill along with the web of those who fund the manufacturing of the abortion pill as well as its clinical trials and studies. What has been uncovered has been nothing short of shocking: an incestuous funding trail from the investors in U.S. abortion pill manufacturers Danco Laboratories and GenBioPro, whose own dollars have been funneled to various groups behind clinical trials and studies of the abortion pill and its purported safety and effectiveness. Such an arrangement appears to be a possible conflict of interest, which...

    Warren Buffett hasn’t found a lot to like in the stock market recently.In each of the last six quarters, Buffett has sold more stocks for Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) (BRK.B) than he bought. Last quarter, he sold off a big chunk of his Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) position and the entirety of his Paramount Global (NASDAQ: PARA) investment. All told, he sold nearly $20 billion worth of stocks from Berkshire’s portfolio, and he bought less than $3 billion.Buffett lamented investment opportunities for Berkshire are few and far between as the company grows bigger. With a market cap of about $877 billion, there...

    Warren Buffett is a philanthropist whose billions have been funneled to pro-abortion organizations for decades, including many behind the expansion of the abortion pill. While some of this is well-known among pro-lifers, what is less known is that Buffett was also instrumental in creating a “church” as a front for referring women for illegal abortions prior to Roe v. Wade — a “church” that eventually merged into Planned Parenthood Los Angeles. Warren Buffett’s abortion pill philanthropy Warren Buffett’s Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation was among the original investors in Danco Laboratories, the U.S. abortion pill manufacturer. In addition, the Washington Post...

    Planned Parenthood financier Charles Munger died on November 28, 2023, at age 99, after “spending more than four decades as [Warren] Buffett’s second-in-command and foil atop Berkshire Hathaway Inc.,” according to Reuters. The two men met in Omaha in 1959. Like Buffett, Charles Munger (or “Charlie,” as he was often called) was also an abortion philanthropist, who served on Planned Parenthood’s board and even helped Buffett create a ‘church’ to help women get illegal abortions. Who was Charles Munger? InsidePhilanthropy.com previously noted how Munger “worked in real estate for several years before starting a successful investment firm that eventually caught...

    Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway has significantly reduced its stake in Chinese electric car manufacturer BYD in a series of sales over the past 18 months, according to recent filings. The most recent share sale occurred on October 25, just days before BYD announced record quarterly earnings. This prompted some analysts to raise their price targets for the company. During the quarter, BYD’s auto segment achieved a net profit of Rmb9.4 billion ($1.28 billion), equivalent to an impressive net profit of Rmb11.4k per car, according to Paul Gong, the head of China auto at UBS Global Research. Gong attributes this success...

    MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — Jimmy Buffett is being remembered the world over for his music. Buffett grew-up in Mobile and passed away Friday night after a long battle with skin cancer. This weekend, we’re also getting a glimpse of his philanthropy. He anonymously donated two of his planes to Battleship Memorial Park last year. It’s a gesture both steeped in Buffett lore and continues the park’s educational mission. The two aircraft have been assembled for months inside the Medal of Honor Pavillion. Whenever someone asked who donated them, people in the know would sheepishly say it was anonymous, all the...

  • Warren Buffett gets gloomy: America's 'incredible period' iseconomy, jobs, globalization coming to an end.

    According to the world’s most famous investor, the “incredible period” for the U.S. economy has been coming to an end in recent months. That’s a somewhat surprising statement from a man who has famously been ultra-bullish on the U.S. economy. But persistently high inflation, higher interest rates and the ongoing banking crisis have all made Buffett much more concerned about investment gains in the year ahead. His partner, Charlie Munger, echoed this sentiment. “Get used to making less,” Munger quipped.

    Warren Buffett's wife reportedly balked at the $4 cost of a coffee at Sun Valley. Astrid Menks' reaction aligns with her husband's approach to life, investing, and dealmaking. Buffett lives simply, seeks value as an investor, and strikes a hard bargain when he cuts deals. Warren Buffett detests high inflation, and it appears the billionaire's wife does too. Astrid Menks balked at paying $4 for a cup of coffee at Sun Valley this week, noting she "could get a pound of coffee" for that price in other places, the New York Post reported on Thursday. Her reaction won't surprise close...

    Somehow, Warren Buffett believes that the federal government should cover all depositors, no matter how rich they are, even though the FDIC specifically states that it covers only $250,000, and that is what it charges insurance premiums on. Underwriting risks seems to be a foreign concept to Buffett. Warren Buffett said Saturday that it would have been "catastrophic" to let any Silicon Valley Bank depositors lose their money when regulators seized the troubled California lender.The fall of Silicon Valley Bank on March 10 triggered panic across the financial system. In a bid to restore calm, US officials made the controversial...

    Speaking to Berkshire’s millions of shareholders on Saturday, Buffett warned the company was being hit by inflationary pressures: “We’re seeing very substantial inflation – it’s very interesting. I mean, we’re raising prices. People are raising prices to us. And it’s being accepted.” “The costs are just up, up, up. Steel costs, you know, just every day, they’re going up.” “And it just won’t stop! People have money in their pocket, and they pay the higher prices… There’s more inflation going on that people would have anticipated six months ago or thereabouts.” -VIDEO

    We are seeing substantial inflation," Buffett said at the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholder meeting broadcast exclusively by Yahoo Finance. "We are raising prices. People are raising prices to us, and it's being accepted." Buffett called out much higher steel costs impacting Berkshire's housing and furniture businesses. Subramanian thinks investors could see a "robust" rebound in inflation in coming months in the wake of the latest round of C-suite commentary. "Inflation is arguably the biggest topic during this earnings season, with a broad array of sectors (Consumer/Industrials/Materials, etc.) citing inflation pressures," Subramanian notes. Proctor & Gamble said recently it would begin...
