    "The two parties are switching class constituents. Some 65% of the Americans making more than $500,000 a year are Democrats, and 74% of those who earn less than $100,000 a year are Republicans, according to IRS statistics." "In the recent presidential primaries and general election, 17 of the 20 wealthiest ZIP codes gave more money to Democratic candidates than to Republicans"
  • Stabenow: Asking Rich to Pay ‘More Than Zero’ in Taxes Is ‘Not a Tax Increase’

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) said that “if you ask billionaires to pay something, that’s not a tax increase, more than zero, it’s not a tax increase.” While discussing the negotiations over the $3.5 trillion budget package, Stabenow said, “We really believe that it’s time that the American people know that somebody’s got their back, and that the tax code should work for working people, not just the rich, not just the millionaires and billionaires. We believe that if you ask billionaires to pay something, that’s not a tax increase, more than zero,...

    Even post-COVID, the exodus of wealthy New Yorkers will continue until the plague of city mismanagement also ends.Goldman Sachs is relocating 100-plus key employees from the city to Palm Beach, Fla., to save money and grow its operations strategy beyond Wall Street. That includes partners who earn a million a year before typically far larger bonuses.So while Wall Street execs who are pushing their people to return to the office make a lot of headlines, other CEOs are looking to move the entire office, or part of it, after the last 15 months proved how practical it is.Notably, Bloomberg found...

    Car shopping right now is a miserable experience. There’s no new inventory, used inventory is scant and ultimately you’re going to be overpaying. And that’s a problem, because people need cars. But before you lament your own inability to buy a car, take a moment and spare a thought for the real victims of post-pandemic over demand and under supply: private jet customers. They’re people just like you and me and they’re hurting, folks. New business jets can’t be made fast enough, and the secondhand market is bone dry, per Reuters: “There are virtually no young pre-owned aircraft available -...

    Everywhere, people trash capitalism. But what they think they know about capitalism is usually wrong. My new video debunks some myths about capitalism. "No one ever makes a billion dollars," complains Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. "You take a billion dollars." In other words, capitalists get rich by taking money from others. That's nonsense, and Myth No. 1. People believe that myth if they think that when one person wins, someone else must lose. It's natural to believe that if you think there is a finite amount of money in the world. But there isn't. Free markets increase total wealth. Competition encourages...

    Congress passed the $2.2 trillion Heroes Act.House Democrats said it gives money to “governments who desperately need funds.”But it also gives lots of money to people who don’t need funds.Maryland, which even The Washington Post admits is “flush with cash,” got enough extra money to pass a budget that “hands bonuses to every state worker.”Even Atherton, California, where the median home price is $6 million, got Heroes Act money.“There was no means test!” complains Lisa Conyers, author of Welfare for the Rich, in my latest video.Omni Hotels & Resorts received $68 million in loans.

    For two decades, the Shinnecock Indian Nation has tried and failed to open a casino near Manhattan in the hope that a gambling hall would be an economic engine to wrest them from poverty and fund social programs. Now the tribe has its eye on a new location: its home in the Hamptons. The Shinnecock Hamptons Casino is expected to rise on the tribe’s reservation here on the East End of Long Island as early as 2023.
  • Hyperinflation is coming and it will destroy everyone's wealth except for the ultra-rich

    History and the news | 14 April 2021 | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin
    Hyperinflation is starting to set in. Individuals who study history, economics and the present situation realize we are entering a period of out-of-control inflation. This will destroy the wealth of everyone but those who are able to raise the price of their labor/goods to match the market. Those who can't will perish economically. The very wealthy are obviously very aware of this. They are buying land/houses/goods which they can finance long-term knowing they will pay back those loans with inflated dollars, making the items they purchase extremely cheap. Or, some are buying every piece of land they can get their...

    Logical thought and the Bible | 17 February 2021 | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin
    The thought hit me early this morning. One rich group of politicians constantly sends out messages about how horrible the "other side" is and a huge number of people on that group's side screams, "Get them!". The problem is, each rich group is exactly like the other side. They care little to nothing about the Bible, Jesus or God, they're both immoral, both lie, both care little or nothing about the poor, both gossip, both deceive, both curse, both cheat and steal assets, both drink alcohol in prodigious quantities, do drugs, etc., ad nauseum. It's no wonder Republicans voted against...

We’re told that after Page Six revealed that Trump and husband Jared Kushner bought land on exclusive Indian Creek and plan to move their family there after they leave Washington, DC, locals are frantically working up Robert Mueller-esque theories about the subject.

    After four years of stonewalling, the FBI is now starting to come clean and admit to its previous lies. Why now? If the FBI was confident that Joe Biden and friends would take over in January, they could have continued to lie. Today’s revelation means the FBI is now trying to get ahead of revelations to come. The importance of this development extends beyond the case of Seth Rich and his alleged role in the leaking of DNC emails.

    A federal judge on Wednesday ordered Twitter to reveal who was behind the account that allegedly spread the conspiracy about the death of slain Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich. U.S. Magistrate Judge Donna Ryu in Oakland, Calif., ordered that Twitter must turn over information about the account @whyspertech. That account allegedly forged FBI documents falsely linking Rich’s killing to the Wikileaks hack of Democratic emails and provided them to Fox News. NPR first reported on the order. Twitter has sought to keep the identity of the user secret, arguing that disclosing that information would violate the First Amendment....
