By Jack Crowe / The Daily Caller News Foundation on The Daily Sheeple The Democratic Party is pushing for a federal $15 minimum wage as part of its recently revealed “Better Deal” economic platform, despite paying its own field organizers significantly less than that during the 2016 election cycle. The new platform, announced Monday at a press conference in Berryville, Va., aims to ingratiate the Democratic Party with blue collar voters through populist economic messaging focused on prioritizing the interests of …

One mystery trader has made an extremely large bet that the stock market is going to crash by October, and if he is right he could potentially make up to 262 million dollars on the deal.  Fortunes were made and lost during the great financial crisis of 2008, and the same thing will happen again the next time we see a major stock market crash.  But will that stock market crash take place before 2017 …

If you have ever wondered why our leaders in Washington D.C. seem to act so strangely, the truth is that it almost always comes down to just one thing.  It has been said that “money makes the world go round”, and that is definitely true in Washington.  This year the federal government will spend more than 4 trillion dollars, and that represents well over one-fifth of our national GDP.  With so much money coming in and …

As The Social Security Scam Nears Its End, Working Millennials Can’t Help But Notice They’re Being Pillaged While They’re Being Mocked

Scott Buss ECONOMY, FEATURED ARTICLES, POLITICAL, U.S. NEWS, WATCHMEN ON THE WALL 0 Comments

Do many Millennials have a well-deserved reputation for being lazy, self-absorbed, emotion-driven snowflakes with a mind-blowingly awful entitlement mentality? Oh yeah, sure. After generations of American parents singing the praises of overtly Marxist/Socialist constructs like public schools and Social Security, what else did we expect? Yet again and again we hear self identified conservative Christians express shock and awe over the snowflakey patheticness of Millennials. So the question has to be asked: Which is worse – the snowflakes or …

The push toward a cashless society is becoming more of a shove. Before today I had never heard of “The Visa Cashless Challenge”, but after reading about it I have to say that I am quite alarmed. Visa is trying to “encourage” businesses to go cashless, and one of the ways that they will be doing this is by “awarding up to $500,000 to 50 eligible US-based small business food service owners who commit to …

Did you know that the federal government is going to spend more than 4 trillion dollars this year?  To put that into perspective, U.S. GDP for the entire year of 2017 is going to be somewhere between 18 and 19 trillion dollars.  So when you are talking about 4 trillion dollars you are talking about a huge chunk of our economy.  But of course the federal government doesn’t bring in 4 trillion dollars a year.  …

California Leftist Liberals Knock Out Coal Power Plants, Seeking to Shutter Natural Gas Power Plants – Precipitating New California Energy Crisis?

Lyle Rapacki ECONOMY, FEATURED ARTICLES, POLITICAL, U.S. NEWS 0 Comments

Donald Trump’s election sent shock waves through the American liberal, progressive (code for European Socialists), and global Elite fraternities.  Within days of Mr. Trump’s election a concerted, well organized and funded assault began to render Mr. Trump and his administration ineffective, and even impotent to change the Socialist Agenda seductively introduced since Bush, Sr. took the reins from Ronald Reagan.  The percolating socialist/Marxist minions of the Democrat Party have boiled over into a spectacle of …

Never Trump Critics Look Foolish Today

By Jeff Crouere During the 2016 election, the “Never Trump” conservative critics of Donald Trump predicted a catastrophe for the country if he was elected President. Well, as we approach the six-month anniversary, America is witnessing our most successful presidency since Ronald Reagan. Contrary to worries from movement conservatives, the President assembled a stellar cabinet and appointed a solid strict constructionist, Justice Neil Gorsuch, to the Supreme Court. He instituted a travel ban, upheld by the …
