The Democratic Party’s 2020 Platform is a Socialist’s Dream. Here’s What it Contains.

Karl Marx would be proud.

The Democratic Party is already hard at work putting together their platform for the 2020 presidential election, and let’s just say that Karl Marx would be super proud of all they want to accomplish.

In other words, the platform is a socialist’s dream. Apparently they want everyone to have lots and lots of “free stuff,” which we all know is impossible because nothing is really ever free. Someone is also footing the bill somewhere.

Sen. Bernie Sanders has developed a plan that would make college tuition free for students, which in reality means he plans on using $75 billion in taxpayer dollars for this “fee” college education. Tack this on to this 90 percent tax bracket and you have an economic disaster of biblical proportions just waiting to happen.

However, that’s just the beginning.

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old former bartender who’s the darling of the mainstream media and touted by Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez as the “future of our party” — has a plan for free health care for everyone.

Guess how much “free” costs: Try $32.6 trillion over 10 years, according to a new study. That averages out to $3.26 trillion a year — almost exactly what the government took in last year in total tax revenue!

Now along comes 2020 hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Californistan) with an even better plan: She wants to just give away cash. Harris said on Thursday than under her plan, families making less than $100,000 a year could receive up to $500, or $6,000 a year, and individuals making less than $50,000 could get $250 a month.

“Americans are working harder than ever but stagnant wages mean they can’t keep up with cost of living increases,” Harris said in a statement about her legislation, dubbed the Livable Income for Families Today (LIFT) Act.

“We should put money back into the pockets of American families to address rising costs of childcare, housing, tuition, and other expenses,” Harris said. “Our tax code should reflect our values and instead of more tax breaks for the top one percent and corporations, we should be lifting up millions of American families.”

Of course, Harris has yet to figure out what exactly her LIFT program is going to cost the average tax payer, but chances are, as with all big government programs, it’s going to put a sizable hole in the wallets of most American citizens.

Harris’s program is also known as “universal basic income,” an economic experiment that has been attempted in several foreign countries and has failed miserably every single time. the city of Stockton, California will be the first U.S. city to deploy UBI, supplying 100 residents with $500 a month for the next 18 months with zero strings attached.

The overall cost for the California program is in the ballpark of $900,000.

By doing a little simple math you can clearly see that if this program were rolled out on a national level it would end in a complete and total nuclear meltdown of the economy. It’s completely unsustainable. Hopefully this fails quickly and sinks any thought of rolling this out country wide.

Hunter Biden’s Art Dealer Had Grand Chinese Ambitions in 2015

This certainly raises a few new questions…

Published

on

Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, has been heavily criticized in recent weeks, as he begins to sell hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of art to anonymous buyers around the world. As one can imagine, the idea that such vast amounts of money are pouring into the First Family without any transparency has led to concerns about foreign interests gaining a foothold in the White House via untraceable transactions. New reporting regarding Hunter Biden’s art dealer is now exacerbating those worries. The art dealer representing the president’s son has longstanding ties to China and said in 2015 that he wanted to be the art world’s “lead guy in China.” Georges Berges, who is representing Hunter Biden as he ventures into the art world, has talked about his business dealings in China in the past, but his reported ties could pose an ethics issue as he sells Biden’s art to anonymous buyers. Here is where it gets wild: Berges said in a 2015 interview with Resident that he wanted to be the art world’s leader in China. “My plan is to be the lead guy in China; the lead collector and art dealer discovering and nurturing talent from that region,” Berges said. “I plan to find and discover and bring to the rest of the world those I consider China’s next generation of modern artists.” He also said that that he believes “China’s economy is transforming the global economy and everything is changing because of a rising China,” and that he was fascinated by “cultural impact” China is “having on the world.” “Cultural power is real power. That is the reason America continues to be the capital of the world, because of its influence on culture for generations and on an unrivaled global level,” Berges also said. “And I…

US Pop Star Offers to Pay Fines For Olympic Team Protesting Skimpy Outfits

The IOC wants the women to remain scantily clad, and this is undoubtedly on account of their incessant greed.

Published

on

The Olympics may have built themselves as some sort of prestigious and untouchable global event in years past, but the last few decades have revealed just what a shady cash-grab the games have become. It all began in the 90’s when the financially-struggling Winter Olympics added snowboarding to the games, in a move that was blatantly meant to generate ad revenue from the emerging sport and its fans.  In this quest to cash in, the International Olympic Committee refused to allow any actual snowboarding organizations participate in the operations, which drove several of the world’s best to boycott.  This, in turn, completely ruined the concept that the gold medalists were truly the best in the world, and exposed the IOC as nothing more than a marketing firm. Now, in 2021, a number of female athletes are complaining that they are being forced to wear skimpier clothes than their male counterparts, (often in the same discipline), to which the IOC responded with a “be quiet and play” sort of attitude. Again, the skimpier outfits equate to more ratings, so Olympic organizers are refusing to make accommodations. This has led US pop star Pink to step up.  US pop star Pink has offered to pay the fines handed out to the Norwegian women’s beach handball team, after they wore shorts like their male counterparts instead of bikini bottoms. The team was fined 1,500 euros (£1,295) for “improper clothing” at the European Beach Handball Championships last week. “I’m very proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team for protesting sexist rules about their uniform,” tweeted the singer on Sunday. “Good on ya, ladies,” she added. “I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up.” In doing so, the Olympics will get their coveted cash and these female athletes will be able to perform…
