    Russia's failure to pay $1.9 million in accrued interest on a dollar bond will trigger payouts potentially worth billions of dollars, a panel of investors determined on Wednesday, as the country teeters on its first major external debt default in over a century.
  • Russia has defaulted on its foreign debt, says S&P

    Russia has defaulted on its foreign debt because it offered bondholders payments in rubles, not dollars, credit ratings agency S&P has said. Russia attempted to pay in rubles for two dollar-denominated bonds that matured on April 4, S&P said in a note on Friday. The agency said this amounted to a “selective default” because investors are unlikely to be able to convert the rubles into “dollars equivalent to the originally due amounts.”
  • Report: 55 House Democrat ‘Deadbeats’ Skip Paying Dues to DCCC as Midterm Red Wave Builds

    Fifty-five powerful and influential House Democrats are reportedly financially stiffing the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), failing to pay the dues they owe because of the likelihood that Republicans will retake the chamber. Top Democrats leaders are unhappy and worried because many of their valuable caucus members are not paying their dues to the party committee, according to Punchbowl News. Rules dictate that each member is responsible for dumping a certain amount of cash into the committee’s coffers to be used by the top brass as a part of a national strategy to defeat Republicans. The amount of cash members...
  • Why Biden hasn't scored a political win from canceling $17 billion in student loans

    Fake News CNN ^ | March 27, 2022 | By Katie Lobosco
    Washington (CNN)Joe Biden has canceled more student loan debt than any other President -- a notable fact that's flown under the radar. Taking a piecemeal approach, the Biden administration has expanded existing loan forgiveness programs for borrowers who work in the public sector, those who were defrauded by for-profit colleges and borrowers who are now permanently disabled. Those moves have delivered significant relief to more than 700,000 borrowers, totaling more than $17 billion. Yet some voters feel misled by the President, who had supported canceling $10,000 for each of the 43 million federal student loan borrowers while on the campaign...

    An Air Force veteran who owns three upstate New York properties has been forced to live in her car because her tenants have refused to pay rent thanks to the eviction moratorium. Brandie LaCasse told CBS News that she has been living at friends’ homes and out of her car with her young daughter. She said she is owed more than $23,000 in unpaid rent but cannot force her tenants to pay or leave because of federal and state moratoriums on evictions. “I’ve cried many nights, like thinking, ‘Where’s my money?'” the single mom said. “I don’t understand how they...

    Fairfax County schools are set to reopen classrooms for in-person learning this month, but thousands of teachers plan to continue working from home. Fairfax County Public Schools plans to have students and teachers return to classrooms on February 16. However, 2,300 of the district’s 15,000 teachers many teachers will continue to instruct their classes virtually even while their students are physically present in the classroom. Because of this, classroom monitors will be present in the classroom with children during class. So far, 645 classroom monitors have been hired, and the school district needs 205 more, Fox 5 DC reported. The...
  • Gig Economy Company Launches Uber, But for Evicting People

    "SINCE COVID-19 MANY AMERICANS FELL BEHIND IN ALL ASPECTS," reads the website copy. The button below this statement is not for a GoFundMe, or a petition for calling for rent relief. Instead, it is the following call to action, from a company called Civvl: "Be hired as eviction crew." During a time of great economic and general hardship, Civvl aims to be, essentially, Uber, but for evicting people. Seizing on a pandemic-driven nosedive in employment and huge uptick in number-of-people-who-can't-pay-their-rent, Civvl aims to make it easy for landlords to hire process servers and eviction agents as gig workers.
  • States Want Coronavirus Aid to Pay for Years of Fiscal Mismanagement, Not Coronavirus Fight

    05/29/2020 3:51:26 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 2 replies ^ | May 29, 2020 | Kay Coles James
    At a time when huge spending bills marked “coronavirus relief” are easily passing Congress with little scrutiny, poorly run states are asking unscrupulous members of Congress to slip in taxpayer bailouts to rescue them from years of their own fiscal mismanagement. In response, the House of Representatives recently passed a coronavirus relief bill that includes a half trillion dollars (trillion with a “t”) in unrestricted funds to bail out state governments for years of reckless expenditures entirely unrelated to the pandemic. I have the same reaction to these proposals that I had when I worked in government and people were...

Frank Biden has failed to pay a dime to the family of Michael Albano despite having defaulted on a lawsuit filed against him for the death, our investigation uncovered.

    How else would one describe the bunch of 2020 Democratic Presidential except for: Deadbeats-R-US. Unlike President Trump, these folks have relied on the government to give them money for their do-nothing jobs they have held. I hope this name sticks. Maybe it will make it to 'talk radio' or other media outlets other than our 'controlled media'.
  • Why the Gap Between White Men and Black Women Paying Off Student Loans Is So Huge

    The experience of repaying student loans is unpleasant for millions of graduates, but for some borrowers, paying off student debt is an almost insurmountable challenge. Twelve years after entering college, white men have paid off 44% of their student-loan balance on average, according to an analysis released Thursday by Demos, a left-leaning think tank. For white women, that share drops to 28%. For black borrowers, the picture is even bleaker. Black women see their loan balances actually grow 13% on average, 12 years after leaving school, while black men see their balances grow 11%. The age at which students enter...

    Cannabis businesses owe millions in overdue taxes to the Oregon Department of Revenue. The latest numbers show 176 businesses owe a total of $15.7 million. . . . The Oregon Department of Revenue says the top 10 businesses with outstanding balances owe more than $600,000 each.The problem is getting worse. Since July the total owed to the state has gone up by $3 million. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission says it does not have the ability to immediately pull licenses like its counterparts in Washington and Colorado. That's because the tax money is collected by the Department of Revenue and...

    When we checked in with Newsweek last week, the magazine had just published a news article critical of the magazine’s owners. That article only saw the light of day after a number of reporters and editors threatened to quit if it were spiked. It came after two top editors were fired and a raid based on an investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney. Today, the Daily Beast reports the struggling magazine is unable to pay its rent and may face eviction. Guardian Life Insurance, the sub-landlord for the company’s downtown Manhattan office, informed International Business Times Inc. in late November...

    Just as the Golden State Warriors set out to defend their NBA title, a legal defense is ramping up over how much the team will owe for improvements made to Oracle Arena once the franchise makes its planned move to San Francisco. Lawyers for the Warriors, in an Oct. 6 letter to the American Arbitration Association, argue that the team has no obligation to pay any remaining debt once it leaves Oakland. The arena’s operator, the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority (OACCA), contends the team must pay all the remaining debt — estimated to be about $40 million — regardless of...

    The police finally found former Yankees slugger Danny Tartabull — thanks to Danny Tartabull. Tartabull, 54, got himself arrested in Agoura, Calif., on Monday evening in connection with $275,000 of unpaid child support dating back to a 2011 conviction. According to TMZ Sports, Tartabull called the police to report his car had been broken into. When the cops ran Tartabull’s name through the system, they saw an active warrant and arrested him on the spot. Six years ago, Tartabull entered a plea of no contest, but did not comply with probation and was ordered to surrender and serve 180 days...
