The Democratic National Committee is raising money for their (futile) attempt to win the White House in 2020. For a mere $100,000, you can, on your laptop, watch Hillary eating dinner. Here is a better idea, DNC: Charge people one dollar to totally avoid anything on their newsfeeds about this harebrained idea. Can easily raise at least $200M. You’re welcome 🙂 Via Sun. Hillary Clinton will be having a “virtual dinner” on Zoom for Joe Biden with hosts paying $100,000…. The pricey meeting – taking place on the Zoom conferencing app on May 19 between 6 and 7 pm PDT – will raise money for the Biden Victory Fund. The ‘Host’ ticket level is the most expensive at $100,000 –...

As if this story was not bizarre enough: Several days ago, artist Maurizio Cattelan (who also constructed the six million dollar golden toilet stolen from Winston Churchill’s family home) duct-taped a banana to a gallery wall at Art Basel Miami, and the “work of art” was sold for $120,000.

After forever and trillions of dollars unaccounted for, the Pentagon will finally be audited. On December 7 Defense Department Comptroller David Norquist announced he received notification from the DoD Inspector General that an audit involving 2,400 auditors will begin this month. Pentagon To Undergo First Ever Audit After Decades Of Sloppy Accounting And Missing Trillions The Pentagon is no stranger to criticism over serious waste and purposefully sloppy accounting. A DoD Inspector General’s report from 2016 – which appears to be unavailable on the DoD website (but fortunately WAS archived)- found that in 2015 alone a staggering $6.5 trillion in funds was unaccounted for out of the Army’s budget, with $2.8 trillion in “wrongful adjustments” occurring in just one quarter.

And Congress can’t figure out where we’ll get the money to pay for the wall, or provide veterans with decent care, or cut taxes. Go figure… But make no mistake, this is simply another idiotic excuse, a pretend investigation at a university, to throw money at leftist academics. If we stop this sort of fraud and abuse, we’d have a heck of a lot more money for things that matter, including tax cuts. Via Free Beacon. The National Institutes of Health is spending over $400,000 on a study tracking the eye movements of Latinos and their children at grocery stores in a bid to fight obesity. The study at San Diego State University is using “eye-tracking technology” to determine how...
