Capitalism For The Win: Elon Musk Makes Pledge to do What The Government in Michigan Failed to do

Published

on

Time and time again, leftists try to beat it into the heads of the masses that rich people and mega corporations are the source of all evil, the cause of what ails humanity, all while tweeting from their Apple iPhones.

Those of us who have a drop of common sense and can clearly see the basic universal facts of economics with clear vision recognize that capitalism is the only real solution to poverty and that the majority of our problems cannot be solved by the government, but by the free market.

A great example of this comes in the form of a recent pledge made by billionaire inventor and entrepreneur Elon Musk. Musk has promised to provide funding to fix the water of any home in Flint, Michigan that has levels that do not meet FDA requirements.

The free market at work, folks.

It seems there’s already a plan in place to repair this issue, so Flint is gladly going to take Musk up on his offer.

From CNN:

The deal requires Michigan to give Flint $87 million in state and federal funds so the city can replace lead and other problem water pipes that connect homes to the city’s main water line. Some of that — $20 million — comes from a $100 million Environmental Protection Agency grant awarded to upgrade Flint’s water system last week; $20 million more comes from a state match.

The state government must come up with an additional $47 million, the settlement says. Also, it must set aside a further $10 million in federal funds for potential cost overruns.

The city says it estimates pipes leading to 20,000 households need to be replaced, and it wants to complete this by the end of 2019. Pipes leading to nearly 800 homes have been replaced so far.

The deal says pipes leading to at least 6,000 households will be replaced by the end of 2017, with a further 6,000 done by the end of 2018.

Musk is using his fortune to improve the quality of life and health for other individuals, sharing his blessings with those who have not been fortunate to have the same level of success. This is what being wealthy is really all about.

The problem, of course, isn’t money. The problem is that some people make an idol out of riches and seek to horde them for themselves. Yes, contrary to what many conservatives may want to believe, these people do exist. However, they aren’t the vast majority of the top one percent in our country. Not by a long shot.

Most are like Musk, desiring to use the resources they have been given to improve the world around them and leave it a better place than it was when they arrived. That should be the goal of all Americans.

It must surely burn up Democrats to see a private corporation do what their big government ideals failed to accomplish.

Trump 2020 Campaign Fires McGhan’s Law Firm

Turnover is nothing new for the Trump White House.

Published

One of the key players identified in the pages of the Mueller report is Don McGhan, former counsel to the President. McGhan’s name hasn’t previously been this far into the forefront, but a revelation from within Robert Mueller’s inconclusive dissertation regarding possible obstruction of justice by the President has made him nearly a household name. McGhan’s infamy arises from a passage in the report detailing his reaction to a question by President Trump regarding possible conflicts of interest that Robert Mueller and his team may have had. After McGhan’s insubordination became public knowledge with the release of Mueller’s epic tome, President Trump’s 2020 campaign team have decided to no longer retain legal services from his firm. The Trump campaign has hired its own in-house attorney for its 2020 reelection bid — shifting future business away from Jones Day, the law firm, that has represented Trump since his first run for president. Campaign officials and advisers cast the decision to hire Nathan Groth — a former lawyer for the Republican National Committee and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — as a money-saving move, supported by the businessman-turned-president who loves to cut costs. Here’s the kicker… But close Trump advisers say the decision also stems from disappointment with the White House’s former top attorney and current Jones Day partner, Don McGahn, whose behavior has irked the president and some of his family members. This certainly won’t surprise many within Trump’s inner circle, as his administration has been rife with turnover during the 2+ years since the President was inaugurated.

Trump Approval Numbers are SHOCKING After Mueller Report Release

Published

National Emergency

The mainstream media’s nonstop speculation on the meaning of the Mueller report has certainly had an impact on the psyche of the nation. For two days, (that feel like an eternity), the infotainment industry has been parsing nearly every word from within the 400+ page report compiled by Robert Mueller in his role as Special Counsel. While Mueller was unable to charge the President with a crime, the mainstream media is now clinging to hope that congressional democrats will keep the fight alive….somehow. This cacophony of progressive nonsense has manifested itself in President Trump’s approval ratings. The number of Americans who approve of President Donald Trump dropped by 3 percentage points to the lowest level of the year following the release of a special counsel report detailing Russian interference in the last U.S. presidential election, according to an exclusive Reuters/Ipsos public opinion poll. The poll, conducted Thursday afternoon to Friday morning, is the first national survey to measure the response from the American public after the U.S. Justice Department released Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 448-page report that recounted numerous occasions in which Trump may have interfered with the investigation. Where does Trump stand? According to the poll, 37 percent of adults in the United States approved of Trump’s performance in office, down from 40 percent in a similar poll conducted on April 15 and matching the lowest level of the year. That is also down from 43 percent in a poll conducted shortly after U.S. Attorney General William Barr circulated a summary of the report in March. The President has communicated his displeasure at the continued grievance of the democrats via Twitter, where he has lashed out several times since the release of the Mueller report.
