Confiscating, er, taxing 60% of the wealth of U.S. billionaires is really dumb. Unless you are a total ‘economics – illiterate,’ or an old Communist, er, Socialist Senator from Vermont. But I repeat myself. Via Issues & Insights. Senator and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has another bright socialist idea: A 60% wealth tax on billionaires to pay for nationalized health care for a year. Such nuttiness would be easy to ignore were it not for the fact he’s now the driving intellectual force behind Joe Biden’s basement-based presidential campaign. As any economist worth his salt will tell you, a wealth tax is perhaps the most pernicious tax, since it punishes people retroactively for their hard work, thrift and smart...

This just happened in the United States of America: A teacher was fired for supporting the President of the USA. Let that sink in. Via Free Beacon. A Michigan school district fired a popular high school teacher and coach after he pointed out that “Trump is our president” on social media. Varsity baseball coach and social studies teacher Justin Kucera said Walled Lake school district officials hauled him into a closed-door meeting after he indicated his support for President Trump’s speech to reopen schools. He told the Washington Free Beacon the Walled Lake Western principal and district superintendent gave him an ultimatum: be fired or resign…. Kucera said the statement that cost him his job was intended to unify, rather...

Memo to AOC, Julian Castro (remember him?) and Lin-Manuel Miranda: We live in the United States of America, not a Banana Republic where people are silenced (or executed) for having opposing viewpoints. Via The Blaze. Goya Foods CEO Bob Unanue refuses to kowtow to progressive pressure after issuing remarks of support for President Donald Trump. On Thursday, Unanue insisted that the United States is “blessed” to have Trump for president, spurning calls for boycotts of the beloved, affordable brand. He made the remarks at a White House event, saying, “We are all truly blessed … to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder.” “We have an incredible builder, and we pray — we pray for our leadership,...

Nate McMurray is not just some annoying Twitter troll, he is a Democrat running for Congress. He thinks he is being clever by conflating ‘racism’ with ‘Trump support.’ Last night, Joe Biden promised that if he wins, he will ‘transform’ America. Does ‘transform’ means getting rid of the Second Amendment, and the First Amendment too? Via Breitbart. Nate McMurray, the Democrat candidate for New York’s 27th Congressional District, urged Twitter followers Wednesday to “report” Trump supporters…. When you see fake videos, when you see racism, when you hear support for Trump… Do not roll your eyes Do not play nice Do not worry about hurting someone’s feelings CALL IT OUT—REPORT IT—FIGHT IT We can not reward or tolerate ignorance.

None of the council members reported any threats to the police, but…whatever. Via The Blaze. The Democrat-controlled Minneapolis City Council controversially voted to disband its police department in the wake of George Floyd’s tragic death. Now, three members of the city council are costing taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars per week because they have hired private security after receiving threats related to their support for defunding the Minneapolis Police Department…. Over the past three weeks, the city has spent $63,000 of taxpayer money on their private security details, a city spokesperson told KMSP…. However, the Minneapolis PD told KMSP there has not been a filed police report for threats against any of the city’s council members, though one could...

Why was the mayor of Olympia, Washington so upset that her house was broken into and vandalized? Why did she say it was all “so unfair” ? She should learn from ‘noted theologian’ and designer of the ‘90’s Grunge Look Marc Jacobs, who has a net worth of $100M, and said this after his upscale LA store was trashed: “NEVER let them convince you that broken glass or property is violence….Property can be replaced, human lives cannot.” So, calm down, Mayor Selby, your vandalized home is “all for the cause.” Or something…. Via Daily Wire. It’s all fun and protests until someone vandalized your home. Olympia, Washington, Mayor Cheryl Selby has been a vocal supporter of Black Lives Matter and...

NYC Mayor de Blasio’s wife just said a police-free NYC would be “Nirvana.” So, dear occupier/activist/domestic terrorist, enjoy your….Nirvana. In your land of CHAZ… or something. Via Daily Caller. An activist who claimed to have helped establish the self-declared Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), a six-block area in downtown Seattle, took to Twitter to complain about the community’s food being stolen….

Looks like that “social distancing” thing is sooo last month.

Snitching on the snitchers? Well, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander…or something. Having local governments encourage citizens to snitch on each other is outrageously un-American. But looking on the bright side, at least we all now know what Stasi means. Via Reason. Hundreds of St. Louis citizens who snitched to the government about businesses that defied closure orders are discovering that their messages are not confidential and their identities are subject to sunshine laws. As part of the effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus, some city and state leaders have forced businesses they deem “nonessential” to shut down. St. Louis County encouraged people to report any such businesses that are still open via an...

Defiant Residents 1, California Gubmint 0 🙂 Via Daily Wire. California authorities tried to stop skateboarders by dumping literally tons of sand into at least two area skateparks in an effort to enforce so-called “social distancing.” However, the effort was for naught, it seems. Young residents in California responded to the government’s extreme social distancing enforcement action by grabbing a few shovels, buckets, and booms and turning at least one sand-filled skatepark into a park for both skating and dirt biking….

No. A boycott is a boycott. You can’t “pick and choose” which items are, uh, “kosher” for boycott and which ones are not. And here is a handy-dandy guide for the Israel-hating ‘Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions’ crowd, to make sure they stay “true” to their Jew-hating beliefs: So You Want to Boycott Israel? Here’s A List of Products and Services You Need to Start With. Via Free Beacon. The cofounder of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which urges a complete boycott of Israeli-made products, encouraged the movement’s supporters to seek out one Israel-made product, if it materializes: a vaccine to inoculate them against the coronavirus. The pandemic has created a dilemma for BDS, a Palestinian-led movement that wages...

Could CNN please stop advertising they are “fair and balanced” ? Oh wait, that would be Fox News. Never mind… Via Red State. On Thursday, White House Trade Advisor Peter Navarro appeared on CNN. Hosting the show was Brianna Keilar. As the clip begins, Navarro is saying,”We all, as a country, got dealt a bad hand by China.” It takes a second for Keilar to absorb Navarro’s comment. Then, she puts her hand up and tells him, “Uh, Peter, that is just a waste of time to say that. I’m gonna leave it there. Peter Navarro.”…. So resistance Twitter is going all YAS QWEEN for Brianna Keilar for this Peter Navarro interview. She ended it by saying it was "a...

Looks like the Craven News Network is also the Confused News Network: January 2020 CNN tweet: A new Chinese coronavirus, a cousin of the SARS virus, has infected more than 200 people since the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December.

Proving once again that Libs have no sense of humor. Via Washington Examiner. …It should not go unnoticed…that the news media’s newfound concern for political satire is reserved almost entirely for jokes told by people on the Right. Consider, for example, PolitiFact’s fact-check this week of Republican Wisconsin state Rep. Gae Magnafici…. More people have died from knowing Hillary. — Gae Magnafici (@GMagnafici) March 7, 2020 …her tweet, obviously a reference to a running online gag about the Clinton body count, has been shared by six social media users. Exactly 25 people have “liked” it. If you can believe it, Magnafici’s clowning on the failed two-time presidential candidate landed the state representative in hot water with the media fact-checking group...

Schumer claims he did not make any threats. It’s just that he’s from Brooklyn, and “we speak in strong language.” Really? Well, here is something else from Brooklyn: Fuhgeddaboudit! Schumer’s lame attempt to excuse his behavior is inexcusable. Via NY Post. Sen. Chuck Schumer on Thursday tried to walk back his threat against two conservative Supreme Court justices — claiming the remarks didn’t come out the way he intended because he was “angry” over abortion rights. “I’m from Brooklyn. We speak in strong language. I shouldn’t have used the words I did, but in no way was I making a threat,” Schumer said on the Senate floor. The New York lawmaker was roundly condemned for remarks he made at an...
