VIDEO: Elizabeth Warren Delivers Lecture To Wealthy Americans, Obama Style. Here’s What She Said.

Wealth tax? Hard pass here.

Published

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren is desperately attempting to make her mark on left-wing voters across America, hitting all the appropriate talking points on the official party platform and hoping beyond hope that folks will forget about her cultural appropriation of Native American culture.

Warren is right now attempting to channel former President Barack Obama by lecturing wealthy Americans, mirroring the infamous “you didn’t build that” statement he delivered all those years ago.

Warren’s latest remarks were delivered at a Labor Day stump speech in New Hampshire where she proposed a wealth tax that would impose an annual two percent tax on households that possessed assets greater than $50 million and a three percent tax for households that have more than $1 billion in assets.

“Some of these guys say, ‘I worked hard. I had a great idea. I worked late’ — oh yeah, unlike anybody else. But ‘I worked late or inherited wealth, and so this is mine,'” Warren mocked. “And the answer is yeah, you did. You did have a great idea and you did work hard.

“But here’s the deal,” she continued, “I guarantee you built it at least in part using workers all of us help pay to educate. Yeah. You built it at least in part, getting your goods to market on roads and bridges all of us helped pay to build. Yep. You built it at least in part, protected by police and firefighters all of us help pay their salaries.

“And we are glad to do it. These are the investments we make as Americans,” Warren went on to say. “But here’s the thing: When you make it big, I mean really big, I mean the top 1/10th of 1 percent big, pitch in two cents so everybody else gets a chance to make it in this country.”

Here’s the thing folks like Warren don’t seem to realize. When you decrease a person’s wealth, regardless of whether rich or poor, you’re essentially punishing them for being successful. If that’s what happens to someone who is successful, why would anyone want to work hard and innovate knowing their success will ultimately be trampled on by the government?

Not to mention this is just socialistic wealth redistribution. Why would poor folks want to strive to be innovative and work hard to improve culture and society through improved products, services, and new businesses when they are given everything they need by the government, paid for by the wealthy?

There’s no honor in a system like that, and it’s dangerous to our liberty.

In other words, Sen. Warren, that’s a hard pass here.

President Trump Tells 2020 Dems Bloomberg Won’t Help Them If He Isn’t Nominee

Published

on

President Trump has been sparring back and forth with current Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg on social media, which is nothing new to those familiar with how the current world of politics works. However, what’s made this little spat so interesting is the fact that Trump has issued a warning to the other candidates vying for the Democratic Party nomination, saying that if Bloomberg doesn’t get the nomination he won’t use his money to help support whoever does become the nominee. Here’s more from Fox News: Taking aim at the former New York City mayor, Trump tweeted on Thursday morning that “Mini Mike Bloomberg is playing poker with his foolhardy and unsuspecting Democrat rivals. He says that if he loses (he really means when!) in the primaries, he will spend money helping whoever the Democrat nominee is. By doing this, he figures, they won’t hit him as hard….during his hopeless ‘presidential’ campaign. They will remain silent!” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1220336691539599361 The president then claimed: “The fact is, when Mini losses, he will be spending very little of his money on these ‘clowns’ because he will consider himself to be the biggest clown of them all — and he will be right!” This prediction by Trump would appear to fly in the face of plans by an allied Bloomberg group to spend millions attacking Trump over the airwaves regardless of whether Bloomberg wins. Bloomberg wasted no time shooting back: https://twitter.com/MikeBloomberg/status/1220345042650509312 Bloomberg has said time and time again that he will back whoever the eventual nominee is if it isn’t him, but whether that actually happens is something we’ll just have to wait to see. Trump knows what he’s doing politically, and there’s probably a good chance he’s right on this one. It will be an interesting primary for sure.

VP Mike Pence Urges World Leaders To Stand Against Iran And Confront Anti-Semitism On Global Scale

Published

Anti-Semitism has been enjoying a disturbing comeback in modern day society as of late, thanks in large part to the anti-Israel sentiment being spread by folks in powerful cultural and governmental positions. The increase of attacks against Jews has even turned deadly with many becoming the victims of deadly shootings and hate crimes in New York City and elsewhere. In light of this, Vice President Mike Pence has urged global leaders to take on anti-Semitism and stand against the Israel hating nation of Iran. Here’s more on that from The Washington Examiner: Speaking in Jerusalem at the World Holocaust Remembrance Center to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz on Thursday, Pence said the stories and legacy of those killed in the Holocaust must not be forgotten. “We gather to fulfill the solemn obligation, an obligation of remembrance, to never allow the memory of those who died in the Holocaust to be forgotten by anyone anywhere in the world,” he said. “Today, we remember what happens when the powerless cry for help and the powerful refuse to answer.” The vice president went on to pay homage to the survivors of the Holocaust “who all these years have borne witness to that evil and have served mankind by their example.” He also drew upon the legacy of those who fought against Nazism and anti-Semitism during World War II. “We must be prepared to stand as they did against the wave of their times. We must be prepared to confront and expose the vile tide of anti-Semitism that is fueling hate and violence across the world, and we must stand together,” he said. Leaders from more than 40 nations attended the speech, which Pence took as an opportunity to encourage them to stand against the Iranian regime, calling it “the…
