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

Wealth tax? Hard pass here.

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.

FDA Pushes Through Emergency Authorization For Hydroxychloroquine As Coronavirus Treatment

Published

on

It finally looks like there is a ray of hope in the fight against the coronavirus as the Food and Drug Administration has issued an emergency authorization this past weekend for the use of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the illness that is leaving a swath of devastation wherever it roams. This particular kind of medication is typically used in the treatment of malaria, but when it is paired with azithromycin, has not yet been proven to be effective against the illness in clinical trials, however, there are growing numbers of reports and small studies that indicate it is having a positive impact on those with severe cases. Check out more details from Breitbart: The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a statement on Sunday: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to BARDA to allow hydroxychloroquine sulfate and chloroquine phosphate products donated to the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) to be distributed and prescribed by doctors to hospitalized teen and adult patients with COVID-19, as appropriate, when a clinical trial is not available or feasible. HHS also noted that it had “accepted 30 million doses of hydroxychloroquine sulfate donated by Sandoz, the Novartis generics and biosimilars division, and one million doses of chloroquine phosphate donated by Bayer Pharmaceuticals, for possible use in treating patients hospitalized with COVID-19 or for use in clinical trials.” One of the biggest concerns about using this medication to treat this illness with hydroxychloroquine is that there may now be a massive increase in demand for the drug which could lead to a shortage in the supply. In order to curtail that problem, the HHS said, “Use of the donated medications is expected to help ease supply pressures for the drug, and the FDA is also working with…

Maryland Becomes Latest State To Issue Stay-At-Home Order In Battle Against Coronavirus

Published

The battle against the coronavirus, an invisible invading force that has ravaged the globe making folks seriously ill and killing those most vulnerable to its effects, continues to rage across the United States and things are getting intense. Many states across the country have opted to put out stay-at-home orders in a bid to prevent the spread of the virus, resulting in many businesses being shut down and other measures that are guaranteed to have a deep economic impact on the local community and the country at large. The latest state to join in on employing these measures is Maryland. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan issued a stay-at-home order on Monday. “We have reached a critical turning point in the fight to stop the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic,” the Republican said during a news conference. “We are no longer asking or suggesting that Marylanders stay at home. We are directing them to do so.” “No Maryland resident should be leaving their home unless it is for an essential job or an essential reason,” Hogan said, adding that buying food and medical reasons are exempt. The state of Maryland seems to be taking the stay-at-home order to a brand new level, seeking to actually use legal action to help enforce it. Individuals who are caught breaking the order could receive a misdemeanor and be subject to a year in prison plus a $5,000 fine. The order goes into full effect Monday evening at 8 P.M. By the end of the day Monday half of the states in America will have one of these orders on the books including California, Alaska, Delaware, Colorado Connecticut, Ohio, Oregon, and many, many others. Some might think the idea of enforcing this kind of order with actual legal…
