A few hours before the event, Ramos had posted a link to some of his Trump commentary on Facebook, saying, “When you call 11 million people in this country ‘illegals’ — and no human being is ‘illegal’ — is that not spreading hate?”
Jorge, if you love Mexico as much as I think you do…why don’t you go back and fix it? Do the truthful broadcasts about how the cartels took over your beloved Cd. Juarez because your government is in bed with them. Jorge, Mexico needs you!
Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is running against some—but not all—billionaires. On Saturday, at a campaign appearance in South Carolina, he singled out the Koch brothers as “greedy.” But Roger Morgan, the author of a book on hedge fund operator and billionaire George Soros, wonders how greedy Soros has been, and whether the media will bother to take a look. He notes that the hedge fund operator’s net worth rose from about $9 billion before President Obama took office to over $24 billion today.
But Beijing appears to have decided that it is too expensive to prop up the equity market, especially as it is now intervening separately on a massive scale to stop its currency from devaluing further.
Let’s cut the crap here folks — what has actually powered the rise since 2009? Was it really an improving economy? If it was, why is The Fed still at zero interest rates eight years after 2007 — and six years after the 2009 bottom?
Barter anyone? Looks like Greece is already well on its way to that system.
What is most incredible to me is that the data under scrutiny in the study was from 1981-2002. One can only imagine how much worse things have gotten since the 2008 financial crisis. The study found that even when 80% of the population favored a particular public policy change, it was only instituted 43% of the time. We saw this first hand with the bankster bailout in 2008, when Americans across the board were opposed to it, but Congress passed TARP anyway (although they had to vote twice).
Even more importantly, several years of supposed “economic recovery” has not changed the public’s perception of the bankster bailouts. For example, a 2012 study showed that only 23% percent of Americans favored the bank bailouts and the disgust was completely bipartisan, as the Huffington Post points out.
Personally, I think the banker bailouts will go down as one of the most significant turning points in American history. Despite widespread disapproval, Congress passed TARP and it was at that moment that many Americans “woke up” to the fact they are nothing more than economic slaves with no voice. That they are serfs. Even more importantly, once oligarchs saw what they could get away with they kept doubling down and doubling down until we find ourselves in the precarious position we are in today. A society filled with angst and resentment at the fact that the 0.01% have stolen everything.
A key figure in the Black Lives Matter movement who claimed he was the victim of a horrific hate crime in his youth as a result his race has been outed as white.
Shaun King, an author and writer who is one of the leading voices speaking out against police brutality on social media, has claimed he is mixed.
King has claimed in past interviews that his father is black and his mother is white and of Irish descent, but his birth certificate lists his parents as both white.
In addition, King’s race is listed as white in the police report of the aforementioned attack that occurred while he was in high school.
King also applied for and then accepted an Oprah scholarship to Morehouse College, which are only given to black men.
I think this man is what many name callers refer to as a “cracker”. What’s wrong with these idiots? Stop defining yourselves by imagining to be a person of color. You are what your actions define you as…a dumbutt.
