  • 5 Reasons Making Taxpayers Pay Off Student Loans Is A Rotten Idea

    The Federalist ^ | November 23, 2020 | Elizabeth Bauer
    Regardless of whether Biden would find a loophole or merely attempt to cajole Congress, it remains concerning that there are many people who want him to force taxpayers to bail out the well off.Will a newly inaugurated President Joe Biden make taxpayers pay off $50,000 in student debt for everyone who has it? That’s what Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has called for, according to recent reporting.Although Biden does have a plan to make taxpayers pay $10,000 a year for each college debt-holder for up to five years of work for government or non-profit organizations, he dodged the question...
  • Biden reportedly could sacrifice unemployment benefit boost to secure relief bill

    Biden's camp is reportedly focused on ensuring Black-owned businesses receive loans they had trouble securing following the first relief bill, getting funding for state and local governments, and extending enhanced unemployment benefits. The latter issue is where Biden "may have to give something up to McConnell that we really don't want to give up to get" a deal, "but we simply have to do this," another person close to the transition team said.

    Do you have a flashlight, spare batteries and some duct tape stashed away for home emergencies like power outages or hurricanes? Of course you do. How about 100 ounces of silver coins? If not, you should. In an extreme social or infrastructure breakdown — where banks, ATMs and store scanners are offline — silver coins might be the only way to buy groceries for your family. This is one of many reasons why sales of silver coins and bullion are set to skyrocket. The upcoming election and its aftermath could witness social unrest that would make this summer’s chaos look...

    Assuming that Joe Biden has been involved in money laundering and monetary gain from influence peddling, as well as treasonous activity in compromising his office with foreign powers, it stands to reason that the money involved has to go somewhere. Yes, this is true for his son, his brother, and others in the Biden crime family, too. But, where does Biden stash his take?

    President Trump's new Supreme Court nomination has some Republicans fearfully remembering past (and current) justices who have changed their spots. The liberals' worst nightmare has come to pass: Ruth Bader Ginsburg died during the Trump administration. Many supporters had urged her to retire during Obama's tenure so he could appoint her leftist successor. But with arrogant defiance, Ginsburg stayed on the bench, certain, no doubt, that President Hillary Clinton would name her successor. Reality's one tough customer. Now President Trump has nominated Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. We'll let all the others recount her unimpeachable credentials. Suffice to...

    Desperate to block President Trump's reelection, former Democratic presidential candidate and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has decided to pay the monetary penalties of Florida's convicted felons so they can vote for Joe Biden. "When the Florida Court ruled that sentence completion included paying monetary restitution to the victims of their crimes I knew I had to step in if the Democratic Party hoped to turn these potential voters into actual voters," Bloomberg said. "I have billions to spare for a good cause and this is as good a cause as I can think of." Florida Attorney General Ashley...

    The U-Haul truck captured on video distributing riot gear for Louisville protesters following a grand jury decision in the Breonna Taylor case was reportedly tied to the Louisville Bail Initiative, a left-wing activist group stacked with George Soros Justice Fellows. Almost immediately after the grand-jury announcement, protesters swarmed a U-Haul truck in a parking lot and took out riot gear, weapons, gas masks, and anti-police signs to use during clashes with police. ... Multiple journalists outed Holly Zoller, a board member of a Louisville Bail Project, as the person who allegedly rented the U-Haul and supplied the riot gear to...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci says he expects to see a COVID-19 vaccine being proven safe and effective by November or December. “I would still put my money on November/December,” Fauci said Wednesday at a Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute panel, according to CNN. The nation’s top infectious disease expert has said that researchers test vaccines by giving the shots to some and a placebo to others, then waiting to see if those who got the actual vaccine develop fewer cases or less-severe symptoms. He said that to tell if a vaccine candidate is effective, researchers need to see about 150 coronavirus infections...

    Being extremely wealthy isn’t the carefree, champagne-soaked free-for-all you might imagine it to be — at least according to Jennifer Risher. She and her husband, David, earned tens of millions of dollars in the tech world before the ages of 35, and suddenly found themselves in an elite tax bracket without a manual on how to navigate the potential pitfalls of isolation and strained social relationships. “We see wealth from a really narrow perspective: the glitz, the glamour and the greed, but we don’t see the reality,” Risher, 55, told The Post. “Money is a taboo subject, but it really...

    “The Next Millionaire Next Door” is a repeat of the landmark study from the classic book “The Millionaire Next Door”. Written by Thomas J. Stanley and his daughter Dr. Sarah Stanley Fallaw, it provides insight into the original work, addresses criticisms of it and a whole new data set. Yet the “next” millionaire next door book is not just an analysis of the original. It contains new information, and it builds on related works by others that borrow from the original millionaire next door book.

    Full disclosure: I am a disgruntled U.S. taxpayer whose Venezuelan nephew and niece are in U.S. universities. My wife and I pay everything for their education. Our nephew tried studying chemical engineering in Venezuela but with the on again, off again system under the Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro dictatorships, it was chaotic at best. We brought both kids (young adults) to the U.S. on student visas; enrolled them in English classes; then watched them as they went into community college then the university. Both kids are great students and make their Tia and Tio proud. Even in community college,...

    The Vatican’s sinister deal with Beijing Next month, the Vatican will talk to Beijing about renewing its 2018 deal with the Chinese Communist Party that effectively allowed President Xi to choose the country's Catholic bishops. He has used this power to force Catholics loyal to Rome to join the puppet Catholic church set up by Chairman Mao in the 1950s. They can no longer refuse on the grounds that they recognise only the Pope's Church because Francis himself has validated the orders of Xi's party stooges. But the Holy Father has done more than that: he has ostentatiously failed to condemn...

That event is just one example of the close relationship between the Washington, D.C., think tank and the...

Alex X. Mooney, R-West Virginia. In a letter to House colleagues seeking support for his Gold Reserve Transparency Act, H.R. 2559, Mooney writes: "Because there are concerns the U.S. Treasury may have sold, swapped, leased, or otherwise placed encumbrances upon some of America's gold, H.R. 2559 also requires a full accounting of any and all sales, purchases, disbursements, or receipts; a full accounting of any...
