Rahm Emanuel’s Final Act as Mayor Has Chicago Taxpayers Clutching for Their Paychecks

You won’t believe what Rahm Emanuel’s last “task” will reportedly be as outgoing mayor of Chicago.

The clueless liberal, who has always placed illegals and migrants before Americans, and completely ignore the bloodshed in his city, is still ignoring the carnage, and now trying to implement mass (failed) socialism by implementing a universal income for the cities poorest residents.

Sean Hannity

Outgoing Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced his plan to “form a task force” this week to investigate the implementation of a “universal basic income” for the city’s poorest residents; a move likely to “cement his progressive legacy.”

According to Fox News, Emanuel’s program would make monthly payments for Chicago residents “without any conditions.” Initial estimates place the figure at $500 per month per family.

“Chicago would be the largest city in the country to take this step,” said one Chicago official. “I think the mayor sees this as a chance to lead the way as cities try to grapple with poverty and income inequality at a time the federal government is not addressing those things. This would be a legacy issue [for Emanuel].”

Chicago continues to struggle with escalating gun violence and widespread crime, with recent figures showing over 25% of the city’s population living below the poverty line.

Desperate for Attention, Eminem Goes on a VULGAR Rant Over Trump Supporters Boycotting Nike

I don ‘t know if there’s a more desperate-for-attention has-been celebrity than Eminem.

The aging and failing rapper has been (unsuccessfully) tripping over himself to catch President Trump’s attention. And now, after releasing to flop albums that critics have shredded, Eminem is once again desperately trying to inject himself into the conversation by commenting on the Nike/Colin Kaepernick controversy, and dropping some “awkward” and not-so-edgy “f-bombs.”

This is just 8 miles of pure humiliating desperation.

Breitbart

Rapper Eminem defended NFL anthem kneelers and Nike’s ad campaign starring Colin Kaepernick, referring to critics as “fucking moron[s]” in a new interview with hip-hop radio host Sway Calloway.

“It’s infuriating. Infuriating. Like really?” Eminem said when asked about people burning their Nike gear over their decision to feature Kaepernick in their new “Just Do It” advertising campaign.
“Nike supports people who kneel for the anthem. At this fucking point, come on — seriously? Seriously? You gotta be a fucking moron to think that’s just what it’s about and it’s that fucking cut and dry,” Eminem said. “You know what I’m saying? Like, there’s a meaning behind this shit and there’s real pain behind this shit.”

Liberal Media Just Confirmed It – The Manafort Plea Deal is a NOTHING BURGER for Trump

While liberals celebrate yet another nothing-burger, fed to them by a fake news media that spins “no news” into sensational drama, the reality of the Paul Manafort situation is quite “womp, womp.”

NPR is reporting that President Trump’s former campaign manager’s “plea deal,” has absolutely nothing to do with Trump or “Russia.”

Do you think liberals ever get tired of or feel stupid over, all these hyped-up nothing-burgers?

Don Jr. SMASHES Obama, Gives the #1 Reason Why Americans Will NEVER Credit Him for the Economy

Remember when Obama didn’t believe that Trump could bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States – he assumed they were gone forever – typical globalist.

He even asked what “magical wand” Trump had to achieve such an IMPOSSIBLE task.

Well, President Trump did it. Not only did he fix Obama’s broken economy, but he also brought manufacturing jobs back home!

Trump’s eldest son Don Jr. made sure to remind Obama of this very fact during a recent radio interview.

Breitbart

Donald Trump Jr. told Breitbart News Saturday he is thrilled that former President Barack Obama is active on the 2018 midterm campaign trail because it shows a clear contrast between Obama’s failed policies and his father, President Donald Trump’s, successful policies.

“Without question, he’s our best salesman,” Trump Jr. said of Obama on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel. “No one with a brain actually believes he did anything good for our economy or for our foreign policy. Everyone saw that anything he did basically put America at risk and made us weaker. Every time he drew a red line, other countries walked all over it. He did it again, and they walked all over it. Guess what? Countries, whether it’s foreign policy-wise or whether it’s business-wise, they realize you have someone now that actually cares about America in there, that’s actually doing it–not someone who’s going to make us look weak where you can walk all over us because that’s the precedent that he set. There’s a new sheriff in town. We’ve changed all that.”

Trump Jr. also mocked Obama’s efforts in a series of recent speeches to take credit for the successful Trump economy.

“The biggest joke I’ve seen in the last two years is Obama claiming credit–trying to claim this economy,” Trump Jr. said, “because his policies of over-taxation, oppressive regulation, guess what? That didn’t do anything. That drove this country into the ground. That led to the worst recovery in the history of probably economics but certainly our country’s history. For him to run around doing this now–there’s a reason why on November 9, 2016, all of those matrices shot up like a rocket. It’s because businesses, employers, people realized you got someone who’s actually going to fight for you, not fight just for special interests, not fight for people in countries that hate our guts, but actually fight for real Americans. Real Americans, their jobs, their companies, their businesses. That’s what happened, and when consumer confidence started going up the day my father won because they knew he wasn’t going to oppress them, everything started following. I want to keep that going; that’s how we get rid of some of the other problems we’re having. That’s how we get rid of unfunded pension liability. That’s how we get rid of some of our deficits, is by producing, having GDP numbers above four percent. Okay, remember when Obama said you need a magic wand to make that happen? Well, abracadabra, Obama. We’re doing it.”

The “abracadabra” and “magic wand” reference Trump Jr. made was in response to Obama infamously questioning in 2016 if Trump had a “magic wand” to fix the economy to fulfill the promises he was making:

Trump Jr. also said that failed 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton’s public appearances–as she intends to do multiple Democratic National Committee (DNC) fundraisers in the coming weeks–are great for the GOP.

“That’s the other one; I love for her to be out there,” Trump Jr. said of Clinton. “The more she’s out there, the better it is for us.”

Obama HUMILIATED After Indisputable Evidence Proves He Has NOTHING to do With Trump’s Economy

Obama is out on the campaign trail, embarrassing himself, trying to Obama’s trying to rewrite history – but, not so fast.

Let’s face it – Obama’s policies only benefited big business, urban interests, big banks, and foreign interests, like China, who happily snatched up a bunch of real estate in our cities

In truth, the Obama economy was about federal jobs and part-time burger flipping jobs.

His policies and regulations suffocated the working class and suffocated the heartland.

Now, however, Trump’s economic policies are starting to breathe life back into the middle class.

Thanks to President Trump, we now have good full-time jobs with living wages and benefits, in manufacturing and related sectors.

These are jobs all across the country…..not elite jobs and federal jobs in certain progressive areas, like Silicon Valley and Hollywood.

Furthermore, employers have to compete to get workers.

After 8 years of suffocating under Obama, the American middle class can finally breathe again.

Americans can finally breathe again because of Trump’s America First agenda.

Daily Beast

The collapse of Lehman Brothers 10 years ago today began the financial crisis that crippled and even killed for some the American dream as we had known it. Donald Trump might be starting to change that, at least for Americans who aren’t determined to remain in our bluest and priciest cities.

Overall an estimated nine million jobs and nearly $20 trillion in household wealth were lost. Job levels finally recovered but most of those who suffered from the Great Recession—and particularly current and former middle-income homeowners—did not see their wealth restored when the economy turned around.

Perhaps worst of all, the recession undermined our traditional belief in a better day ahead. Just one in five Americans is confident that life for today’s children will turn out better than it did for their parents, according to a 2014 survey conducted by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal.Nearly three in five Americans expect today’s children to be worse off, according to a 2017 Pew survey.

Some of this pain was self-inflicted, to be sure, as buyers seeking to catch up and get ahead of the market—they thought prices would just keep rising—drove up the home-ownership rate with dodgy loans many could not afford to repay. After approaching 70 percent, the rate is now back in the 63-to-65-percent range of the quarter-century preceding the housing bubble.

But there are two key reasons that most Americans still haven’t recovered their wealth or position from a decade earlier, and that most young adults find themselves starting the race far behind: slow wage growth across the nation and increasingly unaffordable housing prices in the most expensive , and often most desired markets.

Wages for working and middle class people, at least until this year, have stagnated. Overall, only upper-income households have recovered financially from the Great Recession, while the vast majority of middle-income and lower-income households have yet to recover their pre-recession wealth, according to Pew.

In the meantime, housings costs have kept climbing, driven by conscious but misguided policies, particularly in coastal states, that have restricting new building. National Association of Realtors second quarter data shows median house prices in many deep blue enclaves areas have shot past their 2008 bubble peaks. In Portland, Seattle and San Francisco, prices are up 30 percent over the decade. In Denver, prices are up more than 80 percent. They have risen 60 percent in San Jose, where the median price for houses is now a staggering $1.4 million.

After Jim Carrey Goes All in on Socialism, Venezuela Hits Back With a HARSH Reality Check

Don’t you love it when uber rich, pampered and out-of-touch celebrities tell us peasants how to live?

That’s precisely what foolish socialist and unhinged actor Jim Carrey is doing, by pushing his failed socialist agenda.

Now, a journalist from Venezuela, is hitting back against the hypocritical filthy-rich actor, with a dose of truth on what hos precious socialism really is, as his country, and people are dying, thanks to this progressive mindset.

Daily Caller

A Venezuelan journalist took issue with American actor Jim Carrey’s contention that Democrats should embrace socialism, citing his own experiences in his home country.

After Carrey’s appearance last week on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” during which the actor insisted that Democrats should “say yes to socialism, to the word and everything,” Venezuelan columnist Laureano Márquez wrote a scathing column on Wednesday for the Venezuelan media outlet Runrunes, criticizing Carrey’s worldview.

“Dear Jim, I admire you a lot, but sometimes it seems that the inability of Hollywood stars to understand politics is directly proportional to their talent,” wrote Marquez, as translated by Fox News. “I read that … you said: ‘We have to say yes to socialism, to the word [‘socialism’] and to everything.’ Perhaps for you, as for all humanity, the word ‘socialism’ sounds beautiful.”

Many, Marquez explained, view socialism as “the antithesis of selfishness, synonym of concern for others … support for the weakest and their needs, of seeking health and education for all,” the economic system actually has “deep threats.”

“[In] Venezuela, what we find is just that our regime is not – for God’s sake – the antithesis of selfishness,” he continued. “In Venezuela, dear Jim, from what I have just told you, there is no equitable distribution of wealth; wealth is concentrated, as rarely before in our history, in very few hands.”

“At God’s mercy” under socialism with little access to the most basic human needs, Venezuelans seek to escape “however way they can.”

“[This is] a tragedy that is compounded by the denial of a regime that claims that the population has never been better.”

Nunes Issues a STARTLING Prediction for the Liberal Media on Trump’s Upcoming FISA Declassification

Fake news “journalists” should be shaking in their boots.

This, according to Rep. Devin Nunes, who says the information located in the documents President Trump is set to declassify, will cause shockwaves for our lying liberal media.

Nunes said that both Democrats and the fake news media should be worried about the information that will likely be released regarding the abuse of FISA warrants.

Trump is expected to declassify some of the documents next week.

Daily Caller

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said this week that Democrats and the media are likely to be “frightened” by the information contained in Trump-Russia documents that Republicans are asking President Trump to declassify.

Speaking at an event hosted by the Center for Security Policy on Thursday, Nunes said that Trump is close to declassifying portions of a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant granted against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

On July 21, the Justice Department released heavily redacted versions of four FISA warrants granted against Page from Oct. 2016 through June 2017.

The unredacted portions showed that the FBI relied heavily on the infamous Steele dossier to obtain the warrants. Republicans have accused the FBI of abusing the FISA process by citing the dossier even though it was unverified and financed by Democrats as part of an opposition research project.

Before that release, Nunes and other Republicans on the House Intelligence panel sent a letter to Trump calling on him to declassify and release 21 pages of the fourth and final FISA warrant.

“In the course of the Committee’s investigation, we have uncovered irregularities with the process by which DOJ and FBI obtained information and sought and renewed three times a warrant pursuant to FISA on U.S citizen Carter Page,” the letter reads.

Nunes, a close ally of Trump’s, noted that Democrats and media pundits claimed after the initial release of the FISAs that “the really bad stuff about the Trump campaign was buried in the redactions.”

“And I said, you know what, you might be right. We should declassify the whole thing,” Nunes said Thursday, according to The Washington Free Beacon.

Nunes asserted that Trump’s critics have backed away from that argument out of fear that the rest of the FISA application will be damaging to the FBI and the narrative that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government.

“And you know why? Because I think they’re going to be frightened by what you see,” Nunes said of Democrats and the press.

Nunes’ comments echo remarks he made in an interview on Fox News on July 29.

“We are quite confident that once the American people see these 20 pages, at least for those that will get real reporting on this issue, they will be shocked by what’s in that FISA application,” Nunes told Fox’s Maria Bartiromo.

Republicans are also pressing Trump to release summaries of interviews that the FBI conducted with Bruce Ohr, the Justice Department official whose wife worked for Fusion GPS, the firm that commissioned the dossier.

Ohr was in contact with dossier author Christopher Steele and Glenn Simpson, the founder of Fusion GPS. The FBI conducted at least 12 interviews with Ohr from November 2016 to May 2017 following his contacts with Steele and Simpson.

Congressional sources have told The Daily Caller News Foundation that Trump is likely to declassify the FISA documents first and then release the Ohr reports.

Sources also claim that the FISA application will be damning for the FBI both because of the information in the documents as well as information that was left out of them. Republican have hinted that the FBI failed to include exculpatory information about Trump associates in the FISA applications.

Willie Nelson Faces MAJOR BACKLASH From Fans After Supporting Ted Cruz’s Democrat Opponent

Country music legend Willie Nelson is facing massive backlash after he decided to endorse anti-American senate candidate Beto O’Rourke.

O’Rourke, who has called anthem kneeling the most “American” thing he can think of, is challenging Ted Cruz for his Senate seat.

Nelson has agreed to headline a fundraiser for the foolish socialist O’Rourke, and Nelson’s fans are lashing out, and vowing to dump the aging country star.

Breitbart

Country music legend Willie Nelson is hearing it from his fans who are irate after the rocker agreed to headline a fundraiser for Texas Democrat candidate for U.S. Senate, Beto O’Rourke.

The “Always On My Mind” singer announced on Wednesday that he was siding with the far-left Democrat who recently said that he agrees with protesting against the country during the national anthem.

Nelson said of his support for O’Rourke: “My wife Annie and I have met and spoken with Beto, and we share his concern for the direction things are headed. Beto embodies what is special about Texas, an energy and an integrity that is completely genuine.”

In August, Beto O’Rourke came out in favor of NFL players who protest police during the playing of the national anthem. Naturally, O’Rourke’s comments were lauded by liberals across the nation.

In fact, O’Rourke didn’t just agree that NFL players have the right to protest against the nation, he went farther than that and said that “nothing could be more American” than to protest during the national anthem.

O’Rourke made his proclamation at a town hall meeting where he was asked if he thought the protests were disrespectful to the nation. He said they weren’t and concluded that he could “think of nothing more American” than to protest against the country during the anthem.

But not all Nelson’s fans are as excited as the long-time country star is set to join team O’Rourke. Since the announcement, thousands of Nelson’s fans have taken to social media, many of them slamming the singer for siding with O’Rourke. After the “Blue Eyes Cryin’ In The Rain” singer sided with O’Rourke, many fans turned their backs on him, according to ABC 13.

Some of the comments on Nelson’s Facebook page are pointed:

  • Goodbye Willie, I don’t support socialist commies! You’re not going to advertise on my FB page either. Like we say in Texas, Now Git!
  • That’s it , I’m done . What a disappointment.
  • Good bye Willie…you are not on the right side.. take a look around you and do the right thing…I always thought you were a patriot…wow what a let down. You would pick a socialist agenda and an Anti American fellow like BETO, shame on you.
  • Willie you just lost over half of your fans by getting involved in politics!! Fan no more!! I cannot believe you support open borders and gun control!! You have smoked too much dope! I guess that is what you and Beta have in common!
  • I knew you were a liberal in your personal beliefs. That was obvious, but to each their own. But you had to take it to the public. Just when I thought you were smarter than that…I find you are not…Such a shame to get on the showboat. You just lost some of your I am above it all.

Apparently, Willie Nelson is no longer on their minds!
