The Left’s Attempt to Silence Kanye West
By James Hirsen
Kanye West, one of the most well known celebrities in the entertainment world, recently disrupted the info world order and did so by expressing to his millions of Twitter followers material that is contrary to current liberal doxology. Kanye’s first tweet made social media heads explode. “I like the way Candace Owens thinks,” the rapper-entrepreneur posted. Essentially Kanye endorsed Owens, who is a talented African-American woman who speaks out against victim-hood and, in her words, the “Democratic Party plantation.” The media organs of the left reacted in predictable fashion, attempting to disparage, isolate, and destroy Kanye as well as any other notable individual who would dare traffic in liberal political “heresy.” [more...]
Canada’s Health Care is Abysmal... Why Would We Copy It?
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute
Americans have come down with single-payer fever. 59% now back a national health plan, according to a March 2018 Kaiser Health Tracking Poll - way up from the 33% reported by the Pew Research Center in 2017. But the American people don’t really understand what supporting a single-payer plan means. For instance, in October 2017, 47% believed they’d be able to keep their current health coverage if a single-payer plan were put into place, according to Kaiser. They’re sorely mistaken. Bills that would launch a government takeover of the country’s health care sector are meandering through Congress and numerous statehouses across the country. Those measures would outlaw private insurance within a matter of years. If any of them pass, Americans will find themselves paying sky-high taxes for access - not for care but to be put on a waiting list. [more...]
Sanders’ Jobs Guarantee
By Lowell Ponte
Vermont’s self-described socialist U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders would guarantee a government job paying at least $12-15 an hour plus health benefits to anyone in America who “needs or wants one.” This would do more than cost taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars annually. It could devastate consumers by prompting millions of minimum wage employees to quit and work instead for the government, which might send the cost of hamburgers and thousands of other items skyrocketing. Minimum wage employers would be forced to automate, further shrinking the private sector and the traditional ladder to work and achievement. Even more will become dependent on government make-work jobs, and they will vote for the political party of ever-expanding government. [more...]
What’s Your Pleasure, Mr. Cohen?
On the latest edition of REVOLUTION_The Podcast... we explore how Michael Cohen is now in a very difficult situation. The Justice Department, President Trump - and maybe even the Russians - may all be squeezing him at the same time. Does he take the vow of Omerta? Does he go to prison - and take his secrets with him? Does he flip and become a cooperating witness against the President, a man he once claimed to "love?" Does he put himself at risk of the Russians becoming angry with him? What will he do? [more...]
T-Mobile to Buy Sprint
T-Mobile US Inc. has approached Sprint Corp. with a $26 billion deal, which, if approved by the Justice Department, would wind down the U.S. wireless market from four to three national companies. The new combined entity is to be owned by T-Mobile parent company Deutsche Telekom AG (42%), Sprint parent company SoftBank Group (27%) and the remaining 31% to be owned by the public. The combined company would be called T-Mobile, and T-Mobile’s CEO John Legere would run the company. Both company’s CEOs are determined to close the deal. 9.75 Sprint shares will be exchanged for one T-Mobile share. Both Sprint (S) and T-Mobile (TMUS) are down sharply in Monday intraday trading as worries loom about government interference and regulation. The plausibility of the deal is sound whereas the feasibility is skeptical. [more...]
