Nice guy, huh?

From Free Beacon:

Sir Richard Branson, an English businessman and founder of the Virgin Group, said Americans should pay higher taxes, although he acknowledged he is not American during an appearance on MSNBC on Friday.

Branson appeared on MSNBC to discuss Virgin Galactic’s partnership with New Mexico to build the first-ever commercial spaceport. At the end of the interview, host Yasmin Vossoughian asked Branson about income inequality and the role people like him “should play with regards to income inequality.”

Branson noted, “We have a very important role. I think if anybody is fortunate to be successful, wealth, and sometimes extreme wealth, comes with it and there’s an enormous responsibility to redistribute that wealth by setting up, in our case, many, many different kinds of programs.

Billionaire liberal Tom Steyer wants Americans to know that Democrats won’t be toning down the rhetoric anytime soon.

Steyer: “So basically when you think about how we’re going to succeed and actually kick their ass, it’s going to be based on justice, environmental justice, economic justice and coloration.

That is how California worked, we lead with justice.

And so when we look at what’s going to happen in 2020, we are going to have to crush these people.

Honestly, I think the whole idea that they’re going to compromise, they’re going to come to their senses, they don’t really understand what’s going on.

Pentagon Makes Scary Suggestion About Possible Troop Buildup

President Trump isn’t going to like it.

Published

The Pentagon today seemed to contradict President Trump regarding US military presence abroad with a worrisome statement. Over the course of the last few weeks, tensions in the Middle East have been rising steadily.  Much of this turmoil has come from an ongoing series of attacks on the Saudi Arabians’ oil infrastructure which are believed to have been committed by either the Iranian Revolutionary Guard or their proxies. In the aftermath of the first two attacks, one that targeted four oil tankers and another that detonated an explosive at a Saudi Pipeline location, there was confusion in Washington DC.  President Trump was adamant that he wanted to avoid a war with Iran – despite the Persian nation’s incessant threats against the US. On the other side of the coin, however, was national security adviser John Bolton, whose hawkish lust for war is fairly well document from his previous stints in and around the White House. Now the Pentagon in weighing in, and Donald Trump won’t like it. The Pentagon on Thursday will present plans to the White House to send up to 10,000 more troops to the Middle East, in a move to beef up defenses against potential Iranian threats , U.S. officials said. The officials said no final decision has been made yet, and it’s not clear if the White House would approve sending all or just some of the requested forces. Officials said the move is not in response to any new threat from Iran but is aimed at reinforcing security in the region. They said the troops would be defensive forces, and the discussions include additional Patriot missile batteries, more ships and increased efforts to monitor Iran. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has indicated that he sides with the President on the matter, hoping to deter Iran from…

Not Just a Trade War Anymore: Senate Ponders New China Sanctions Over Concentration Camps

There are some evils in the world that must not go unpunished.

China

Much of the talk on the world’s economic stage of late has been in regard to the showdown between Washington and Beijing. Of course, the magnitude of this conflict warrants the concern.  We are talking about two of the world most powerful economic forces squaring off in a fight that could bring much the world into the ring with it. Both sides, at least of this writing, seem hellbent on coming out victorious – leading to inordinate weaving and bobbing by the stock markets and righteous anger in America’s agricultural heartland. Today, the US is considering imposing new sanctions on China…but not over this trade dispute.  These sanctions are in retaliation for something far more sinister. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee passed a bill Tuesday that, if enacted, would call for sanctions on the Chinese government and select individuals over the mass imprisonment of potentially millions of Muslims in concentration camps in eastern Xinjiang province. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP), under Xi Jinping, has building hundreds of “re-eduation centers” that it claims are “vocational training” facilities for Uighurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and other minorities. Those who have survived them call them “concentration camps” – locations where they are taken by force to learn Mandarin, renouncing their Muslim faith, memorize communist propaganda songs, and engage in slave labor. The gruesome tales from inside these camps are enough to boil any Americans’ blood; sleep deprivation, electroshock torture, and even death. As if that weren’t enough… The camps are so agonizing, a Kazakh survivor told Radio Free Asia (RFA) on Monday, that officials have established specific “crying time” to give those imprisoned a chance to release their frustrations. “They say, ‘Now you can cry,’ but if we cry at other times when we feel the need, they criticize and threaten us, saying they will…
