The guy who was once politely kicked-out of some dirty hippie commune back in the early 70s for failing to do any actual work has decided that Washington, DC has the cure for all that ails the Ketchikan Police Department (Alaska), the Califirnia Highway Patrol, the Miccosukee Tribal Police of southern Florida, the CNMI (Commonweqalth of the Northern Mariana Islands) Department of Public Safety, and all points inbetween.

Especially in the run-up to the mid-term elections, Democrats are lulling the party faithful into a state of extra stupid by drilling into them the mantra, “Trump only gave tax cuts to the rich… Trump only gave tax cuts to the rich…”
From Bernie to Beto, from San Francisco to Fire Island, those fibbin’ libs are purposefully lying to their constituents in regards to President Trump’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.
And for whatever bizarre reason, the Demo-drones are lapping it up.
For those folks, I have one reasonable question: Do you have the basic intelligence required to read and comprehend your tax information on your paystub? Of course, I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt by assuming they’re actually gainfully employed.
How great is socialism? So great, that the minimum wage in the Workers Paradise of Venezuela was nearly doubled, but the same worker is now only pulling in a measly one and one-fourth penny (00.0125¢) per hour.
That’s right… the nation defended by a spectrum ranging from the airheaded to the completely useless (Sean Penn, Jamie Foxx, Oliver Stone, Naomi Campbell, Michael Moore, Jeremy Corbin, Bernie Sanders, Danny Glover, etc.) is now paying those in the government controlled workforce a whopping Bs. F 797,510 (bolívares fuertes), worth roughly $2.02 a month according to the Spanish language currency converter website DolarToday.com.
Despite both Left and Right leaning news services agreeing on the specific amount of money going to the Venezuelan people, both liberals and conservatives agree that things in the South American nation pretty much suck.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro announced a 40 percent increase to the minimum wage as of January, a move that will foment what many economists already consider hyperinflation in the oil-rich but crisis-stricken nation.
In his televised year-end address, leftist Maduro said the new wage level would protect workers against what he calls Washington’s “economic war” to sabotage socialism.
“Good news!” said the former bus driver and union leader, speaking next to a Venezuelan flag in a midday address.
Venezuelans will now earn some 797,510 bolivars a month, factoring in food tickets, or just over $7 on the widely used black market index. Millions will still be unable to afford three meals a day, while the increase is likely to stoke inflation further. Prices went up 1,369 percent between January and November, according to figures released earlier this month by the opposition-led Congress, which estimated the 2017 rate would top 2,000 percent. The Venezuelan government no longer publishes inflation data on a regular basis.
Venezuela’s socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro has raised his country’s minimum wage by a further 40 percent, meaning public sector employees will now earn around two dollars a month in his seventh and final major hike of 2017.
“We have good news regarding the protection and stability of all the workers,” said Maduro in a televised address. “I am announcing the rise of the national minimum wage by 40 percent for all our doctors and public sector workers.”
The move means that working Venezuelans will now receive a basic salary of 248,510 bolivares, equivalent to $2.02 a month. On top of that, they are also handed an increased food ticket worth 549,000 bolivares worth $4.46, meaning their total income amounts to around $6.48.
As part of his socialist “Bolivarian revolution,” Maduro’s late predecessor Hugo Chávez would boast of Venezuela having the highest minimum wage in Latin America, equivalent to $372 a month.
However, inflation began to soar as early as 2007 and accelerated further after oil prices crashed in 2012. In recent years, Venezuelans have been seen carrying thousands of banknotes to buy the simplest of products, in scenes similar to Germany’s Weimar Republic or Zimbabwe’s hyperinflation crisis.
The government has responded by introducing higher denomination bank notes, although even the maximum note of 100,000 bolivares is still worth under one dollar.
Since the below video was first posted to Youtube in November 2017, to 100,000 bolivar note was worth $2.42. It has since shrunk in value to roughly 78¢.
Despite the media being completely in the tank for Hillary and the Democrats, there are certain images coming out of the Wells Fargo Center that can only be described as shocking. Even more shocking is the fact that the overwhelming majority of American news organizations are completely and totally ignoring such.

Martin Shkreli, CEO and founder of Turing Pharmaceuticals, has some colorful nicknames bestowed upon him by the press. The baby-faced multi-millionaire son of Albanian and Croatian immigrants has referred to himself as “the world’s most eligible bachelor,” but the press has tagged him with such colorful monikers as “pharma bro,” “biotech’s bad boy” and possibly the über-harsh “America’s most hated man.” Continue reading “‘Pharma Bro’ donated tens of thousands to the Democrats”→
While the list of Republican presidential candidates starts to look more and more like the New York City Yellow Pages, the situation in the Democratic Party could very possibly be described as an increasingly paranoid Hillary Clinton looking over her shoulder. As the Fox News Channel’s chief White House correspondent details, the Clinton campaign is “increasingly nervous” that socialist Bernie Sanders isn’t the only threat to what was previously seen as a party nomination that was her’s for the taking.
While he represents the voters of the Green Mountain State in the US Senate, Bernie Sanders has a stereotypical Brooklyn accent that’s so thick it could slice through a three pound pastrami sandwich all by itself. And as reported by the National Journal news portal on April 30, 2015, Sanders made it official today that he’ll make a run at being the first person with a working-class New York City dialect to make it to the Oval Office.
Responding to the ever-widening “secret death list” Veterans Affairs (VA) scandal, on of the Senate’s leading liberals has not only blocked legislation aimed at fixing fundamental problems within the VA’s health care system, he’s also let little doubt to exactly how he feels of the accusation that scores of vets have died due to administrative cover-ups that have resulted in medical care being needlessly withheld. As reported by The Washington Free Beacon on May 22, 2014, Vermont’s junior US Senator, Bernard “Bernie” Sanders, has effectively frozen in committee the Veterans Affairs Management Accountability Act (VAMAA), which was aimed at giving the Secretary of Veterans Affairs sweeping in clearing out bureaucratic dead wood.
