It’s just comical at this point…

This is exactly what happens when Democrats elect far-left radicals into office.

New Yorkers wanted a minimum wage increase and they got it.

However, they are already paying for it – bigly – as workers are losing their jobs and prices are on the rise

From Daily Wire:

The New York Post reported last week that the survey found job losses due to the policy. Andrew Rigie, NYCHA’s executive director, told the Post that in 2018, “full-service restaurants recorded a 1.6 percent job loss, which is the first recorded annual loss in two decades.”

The survey also found that nearly one-third of respondents planned to “eliminate jobs” and a majority would raise prices due to the increased minimum wage, which took effect on December 31, 2018.

Well, that’s no good. In fact, it’s very, very bad.

And yet, Democrats continue to keep voting for politicians who are not working in their best interests. Why?

The “Fight for $15” argument will soon morph into the “Fight for 15 Hours” campaign if Democrats don’t get their act together.

When the minimum wage goes up, businesses are forced to cut workers’ hours, stop hiring altogether, and/or raise prices on consumers.

It’s honestly that simple.

Enter Whole Foods, the grocery chain owned by the richest man in the world, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos…

From Daily Wire:

The Guardian reported Wednesday that employees at Whole Foods, which Amazon purchased back in 2017, have experienced a dramatic drop in schedule shifts since the raised wages were introduced.

Along with the new $15 minimum wage for the entry-level positions, some higher-level Whole Foods employees have also enjoyed a $1 to $2 increase in hourly wages, the outlet notes. It all sounds good — until employees’ schedules are taken into account. Since the wage increase in November, Whole Foods employees say they’ve experienced “widespread cuts that have reduced schedule shifts across many stores, often negating wage gains for employees,” The Guardian reports.

Speaking of a $15 minimum wage, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is all in.

Democrat Congressman Gregory Meeks (NY) went on CNN to tell the nation that the 2020 presidential candidate should not be running as a Democrat.

His reasoning is simple and it makes all the sense in the world. Bernie is not a Democrat.

He’s a Democrat Socialist.

Although small, there is, technically, a difference.

WATCH:

Voters were asked about the self-described Democrat Socialist, but things didn’t go Bernie’s way.

One man said, “I can’t stop laughing.”

I can’t stop laughing … it’s a gift to the Republican Party and Trump. They’re so out of touch with reality, they’re selling kool-aid, they’ve been doing it on the campuses for years and now it’s spread out and they have this utopian idea of ‘everything is wonderful’ … people don’t get it, it doesn’t work.

WATCH:

Save conservative media!

Ghislaine Maxwell, Confidant of Jeffrey Epstein, Has Been Arrested In New Hampshire

Published

on

Ghislaine Maxwell, a former girlfriend and confidant of the late Jeffrey Epstein — who probably didn’t kill himself, ha-ha — has been arrested in the state of New Hampshire according to new reports being blasted across most major news outlets this morning. The FBI confirmed that the accused madam was officially taken into custody at 8:30 a.m. in Branford, N.H. The charges she’s been arrested over have not yet been revealed. Makes you sort of wonder if the same fate the befell Epstein might come knocking on Maxwell’s door, doesn’t it? Eerie. Here’s more from Fox News: Maxwell, the daughter of late British media magnate Robert Maxwell, has been accused in civil court filings of facilitating a sex-trafficking operation that brought girls — some as young as 14 — to Epstein’s Manhattan home, though until Thursday she had not been formally charged with any criminal wrongdoing. While there have been reports that there were several others who “facilitated” Epstein’s alleged sexual abuse also being investigated, the main focus has been on Maxwell. Maxwell, 58, dated Epstein more than a decade ago and became a member of his tight inner circle until his August 10 jail-cell suicide. What this means is that Maxwell was privy to a lot of the same information that Epstein was and no doubt knew about all of his big time connections and whether or not those connections were involved in his pedophilia ring. If something did indeed happen to Epstein while in custody, then that would mean that Maxwell could potentially be a target as well. If something happens to her it will no doubt confirm all of the suspicions folks have had about the very strange timing of Epstein’s “suicide.” Back in May, Maxwell managed to win a request to delay questioning concerning a civil…

Virginia Puts New Monthly Limits On Handguns

Published

on

The Bill of Rights, contained within the United States Constitution, speaks in clear, easy-to-understand English, that the federal government does not have the authority in any capacity to infringe upon the God-given right to bear arms. Scholars have debated what this amendment means for many, many years, which is ridiculous, because it’s spelled out for them in the text itself and in the context in which the amendment was written. People have the right to own guns and the government can’t interfere with that. Bingo. However, big government nanny-state folk are only interested in finding new and creative ways to place as many limits on this right as possible, because an unarmed people are a whole lot easier to control. The state of Virginia has now adopted some of the strictest gun control measures in the country after a judge shot down a bid to block a ridiculous one-handgun-a-month limit from taking effect. Here’s more from The Free Beacon: Virginia Democrats made gun control a top priority after taking control of both the state legislature and governor’s mansion in 2019 and quickly pushed through one of the most restrictive packages in the country. Residents in the commonwealth are now subject to universal background checks, red flag laws, and a monthly limit on how many handguns they can purchase. Gun-rights activists had attempted to block the July 1 implementation date of those measures in separate suits. A state judge rejected a request to temporarily block the one-gun-a-month law on Thursday. The same group of gun-rights activists requested a stay in a new suit against the universal background check law, but were unable to secure a hearing before the law took effect. Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), which is involved in both current lawsuits and considering…
