  • Divest in the new administration (vanity)

    Here's something meaningful to do that is also prudent if you haven't already done it. Reallocate to capital preservation or move to cash all the money in your 401Ks and IRAs. The next 30 days are going to be volatile, so sitting your money on the sidelines is not particularly rash. If every Trump voter did this, it would send a very powerful message as well as pruning some power from the incoming overlords.
  • JPMorgan and Citigroup join U.S. corporations halting political donations after Capitol riot

    JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup were among the first major financial firms to say they will pause political action committee donations after followers of President Trump laid siege on the U.S. Capitol last week. JPMorgan, the biggest U.S. bank by assets, is pausing contributions for both Republicans and Democrats for “at least” the next six months, according to spokesman Steve O’Halloran. The New York-based bank will use that time to consider potential changes to its political-donation strategies.

    You see, people are fed up. Not just with economic conditions. But with the political ones. We suspect that that frustration is tinged with fear. We know it is in our case. The state is growing outright despotic…tyrannical. You have congressmen who make no bones about telling us that we should all be subject to arrest and detention by the military. This at a time when the definition of “terrorism” is expanding to include any activity that annoys the political class. The government has been in the business of prohibiting personal behaviors, regulating professional ones and eating out our substance...
  • Bride in China demands divorce over husband's gift of a too-small bra

    Details of the saga were made public when the wedding party host detailed how the gift had outraged the bride and her family in a video on social media. A newlywed woman in China has walked out on her husband and demanded a divorce – all because of a row over lingerie. The furious bride pulled the pin on their wedding celebration at the eleventh hour and declared she was filing for divorce after being insulted by her husband’s wedding gift of a bra … that was two sizes too small. The couple had already been legally married but were...

    Word to the wise. While being in debt is not normally a good thing, sometimes it can be wise. Take for instance the Communist Democrats being in power means that inflation will rise. With inflation comes higher prices, which means you need to reconsider certain aspects of your finances to deal with the oncoming higher cost of living.It's inevitable, because of the Democrat's social agenda of higher taxes, increased regulations, higher Federal minimum wage, and their war on the fossil fuels, because of their 100 trillion dollar Green New Deal plans. That is just the things the Democrats are promising...

    Forgive me for not remembering where I heard it today but it’s being said that when all the totals are added up the Democrats and their outside affiliates spent nearly 11 billion dollars to “defeat” Donald in November add to that the 90 plus percent negative media coverage since he’s been in office Russia,Ukraine,the riots last summer, half his party openly working against him for China interests....and considering he “lost” by less then 44,000 votes in three states that is amazing no wonder despite saying he wanted peaceful protests they want this guy tarred and feathered....If I where him Id...

    The New York Times ^ | December 29th | Catie Edmondson
    Senator Mitch McConnell blocked an attempt by Democrats on Tuesday to hold an immediate vote on increasing stimulus checks to $2,000 from $600, leaving the fate of the measure unclear as President Trump continued to demand the larger payouts and more Republicans publicly endorsed the idea. Instead, Mr. McConnell, Republican of Kentucky and the majority leader, provided vague assurances that the Senate would “begin the process” of discussing $2,000 checks and two other issues that Mr. Trump has demanded lawmakers address: election security and removing legal protections for social media platforms. Mr. McConnell would not say whether he planned separate...
  • Cashing in on COVID: Pandemic turns 50 doctors and scientists into BILLIONAIRES - with more than half hailing from China, Forbes reveals

    The COVID-19 pandemic has helped 50 healthcare leaders become billionaires, with 28 hailing from China, where the virus first emerged in December 2019. The first case of the coronavirus was reported in Wuhan last year before quickly spreading across the world and killing more than 1.7 million people. In the US alone, there are more than 19 million confirmed infections and at least 332,723 Americans have died. Government officials immediately turned to the healthcare industry for help with rolling out a vaccination. Moderna and Pfizer have both made good on their promises to create a vaccine for the virus by...
  • Only Money and Power Matter to Black Lives Matter (And They Call President Trump a Racist!!!)

    12/17/2020 4:29:59 AM PST · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | December 17, 2020 | Derek Hunter
    Racism is cool again, thanks to Democrats. The political party that brought you slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, lynchings, the KKK, and everything else associated with what a group like Black Lives Matter raises billions of dollars claiming to oppose never swayed from their main objective of dividing Americans so they can conquer. So why would a group like BLM work so hard to perpetuate a slavish loyalty to the political party overseeing the slaughter of thousands of black people every year and the destruction of the black community? Because it’s not really about race, it’s about money and power. Since...

    Want to make money and help the world, too? Wall Street says you can! If you invest in "socially responsible" funds, say big investment funds like BlackRock, Parnassus, TIAA-CREF, etc., then they'll do good things for the world, and your retirement funds will grow. These funds obsess about what they call Environmental, Social and Governance factors. For example, Parnassus says it picks investments based on "their environmental impact, how they treat their employees, the quality of their relationships with local communities." People believe. More than $100 billion poured in just in the first half of this year. But I won't...

    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'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?
