Bernie Sanders: The ‘Richest 400 Americans’ Have Been ‘Looting’ US

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is pushing back against the looting claims with a bold claim of his own, criticizing the “richest 400 Americans.” Sanders took to Twitter on Sunday night with an overview of America’s wealthiest citizens in comparison to the size of the United Kingdom’s entire economy. The former presidential candidate went on to address the criticism of looting as he suggested the government is responsible for allowing a different form of looting as a result of billionaires’ tax rates being significantly lower than “people living paycheck to paycheck.” “The richest 400 Americans sit on $3 trillion—the size of Read More

California Faces “Financial Collapse” As It Moves To Allow Businesses

One of the bedrocks of modern US capitalism – which is now mutating by the day if not hour as the Fed scrambles to preserve at any cost its the towering edifice after decades of malinvestment, even the nationalziation of the very capital markets that made America great – and one of the constants along with death and taxes, is that residential debt is non-recourse, meaning one can simply walk away from one’s mortgage if the bill is untenable, while commercial debt is recourse, or pledged by collateral that has to be handed over to the creditor if an event of Read More

Trump campaign staffers donate to help Minneapolis firefighter rebuild bar

Minneapolis firefighter Korboi “KB” Balla’s dream to open a sports bar was almost extinguished. But thanks to a GoFundMe page that exploded with contributions – and an assist from members of President Trump’s re-election campaign — Balla’s dream may still come true. At least two dozen staff members from the campaign — including campaign manager Brad Parscale — have also sent donations, Fox News is told. Balla’s initial open date in March had to be pushed back because of the coronavirus pandemic. He was ready to finally open his doors in June, but that plan came to a crashing halt Read More

WATCH: CNN’s Don Lemon Says Trump Ready To Impose Dictatorship

On Monday, President Trump finally broke his silence after leaving the nation in agony over the weekend with his failure to issue a formal address as rioters rampaged across America. Speaking from the White House Rose Garden, the president pledged to offer military aid to quell what he described as domestic terror. “First we are ending the riots and lawlessness that has spread throughout our country.

CJ Hopkins: Mainstream Media Has Been Conditioning You For This

Well, it looks like the Resistance’s long-anticipated “Second Civil War” has finally begun … more or less exactly on cue. Rioting has broken out across the nation. People are looting and burning stores and attacking each other in the streets. Robocops are beating, tear-gassing, and shooting people with non-lethal projectiles. State National Guards have been deployed, curfews imposed, “emergencies” declared. Secret Servicemen are fighting back angry hordes attempting to storm the White House. Trump is tweeting from an “underground bunker.” Opportunist social media pundits on both sides of the political spectrum are whipping people up into white-eyed frenzies. Americans are Read More

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) revealed Tuesday that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) refused assistance from the state’s National Guard to thwart widespread looting as protests and riots rage over the death of George Floyd. In his daily press briefing, Cuomo issued stinging criticism of De Blasio and the New York Police Department, saying Monday evening’s failed attempt to quell violence unrest was “inexcusable.” “The NYPD and New York City mayor did not do their job last night,” Cuomo said. “I think the mayor underestimates the scope of the problem and the duration of Read More

Wendy’s facing backlash following reports of franchisee’s $440G donation to

Twitter has got serious beef with Wendy’s right now. The fast-food chain is currently facing backlash on social media after it was reported that James Bodenstedt, the CEO of a company that franchises hundreds of Wendy’s, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell locations, had donated over $440,000 to President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign.

THE GREAT DIVIDER: Barack Obama Urges Activists to Capitalize on

On Monday, former President Barack Obama encouraged activists to make the protests and riots following the horrific death of George Floyd into a “turning point for real change.” While Obama has championed radical “transformative” change in America that undermines many of the virtues of the Founding and the Constitution, his advice for criminal justice reform proved surprisingly apt and measured. While the groups he recommends are suspect, activists should indeed follow some of his advice — and especially listen to his powerful condemnation of the looting and riots. Obama acknowledged that the protests “represent a genuine and legitimate frustration over a Read More

In his first in-person appearance in weeks, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden addressed the concept of “institutionalized racism,” and he included a few choice words of wisdom for police officers confronting a difficult situation that could involve the use of deadly force: aim lower.

He also had some words of wisdom for police officers who Read More
