Crisis Actor David Hogg Tells Americans to Boycott Black Rock and Vanguard Over Gun Company Investments

America’s most annoying teenager (unless he’s lying about his age) is at it again.

He’s hit upon the idea of advising other teenagers (and possibly retarded adults) that they shouldn’t invest their money in two of the large Wall Street investment companies.

Like teenagers do a lot of investing.

One of Parkland, Fla.’s most prominent student activists on stopping gun violence has called for a boycott of Vanguard and BlackRock, two of the world’s biggest investors in gunmakers.

The little bastard is as pesky as a buzzing fly.

Hidden College Crisis: 36 Percent of Students Don’t Get Enough to Eat, Says Study

CALEB TORRES. COLLEGE STUDENT. HUNGRY.

Diversity is hungry.

Hungry is not exactly a strength. But, you say, diversity is our strength.

Welcome to a new alleged crisis created by egalitarianism. One that white taxpayers will be expected to solve by forking over more of their earnings to Uncle Sam.

How can a mixed race Marxist learn the language of cultural Marxism when he or she is hungry? A full belly is required to learn the ins and outs of white oppression, the patriarchy, gender fluidity, and so forth.

Blacks and Latinos have little to no ability to budget or plan ahead. The more they dominate campus student populations, the worse the “problem” is going to be.

But don’t worry, kids. Whitey will fix it. You’ll all get free college, free rooms, and free meals. We’ll even throw in a membership in gym to help with the problem of FAT students. And you’ll each get your own personal surrogate mother to remind you to eat.

Caleb Torres lost seven pounds his freshman year of college — and not because he didn’t like the food in the dining hall. A first-generation college student, barely covering tuition, Torres ran out of grocery money halfway through the year and began skipping meals as a result.

Now There’s One Less Goldman Sachs Tribesman in the White House: Gary Cohn

Was it Trump’s fair statement about the people on the right in Charlottesville or was it Trump’s decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum?

Gary Cohn isn’t telling. He’s just let it be known that he’ll be leaving the White House job of economic adviser to the President.

WASHINGTON — Gary Cohn, President Donald Trump’s top economic adviser, resigned Tuesday.

Are (((They))) Getting Ready to Crash the Economy?

No one other than the conspirators themselves can know what the stock market, and by extension, the economy is going to do next. However, you can bet that some of our Hebrew friends had an inkling of what was going to happen to stocks today and they profited handsomely.

I’ve always said that Trump should not take credit for the soaring stock market. During the election he said it was a bubble, but once in office he decided he needed some wins so took credit to the rise in stock prices.

It’s all manipulated, Trump. Now, if it is manipulated downward, you’re going to get the blame.

A bloodbath for US stock values has seen the Dow Jones Industrial Average suffer its biggest daily point decline in its 122-year history.

The percentage loss is a better measure of the “bloodbath” than the points loss.

Republican Tax Bill Quietly Eliminates Tax Break for Illegals

If you want more of something, subsidize it. If you want less, tax it.

In the case of Mexican children running around the United States, America First-ers don’t want any more. Thus, eliminating the subsidy that illegals get for having children is a nice move.

It’s upset a Jewish woman, Melissa Boteach, who was interviewed for this piece by the very Jewish Business Insider.

Business Insider

A little-noticed provision in the GOP’s sweeping tax overhaul plan, which was released on Thursday, would make undocumented immigrant parents ineligible for the federal child tax credit.

As the law stands now, undocumented parents can receive a federal income tax credit up to $1,000 annually for each child, the vast majority of whom are American citizens.

The change could affect the more than 4 million US citizen children under 18 who live with at least one undocumented parent, as well as the approximately 1 million more so-called “dreamers” who were brought the US by their parents as children and remain undocumented.

Democrats, liberal advocacy groups, and immigrants’ rights activists have long been opposed to the idea, which has been repeatedly proposed by Republican lawmakers in recent years. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a former senator from Alabama, and other conservatives attempted to pass this provision, known as the Child Tax Credit Integrity Preservation Act, on several occasions as an amendment to the tax code, arguing that it would save $4.2 billion in federal money going to undocumented families.

Melissa Boteach, a vice president at the liberal think tank Center for American Progress, told Business Insider that the provision amounts to an “attack” on children “to pay for tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations.”

She noted that there is strong research that indicates that the extra income the tax credit gives to low-income families has significant long-term benefits for the children, improving their educational, health, and career outcomes, on top of helping to mitigate immediate hardship.

Particularly for low-income families, the child tax credit can be key to staying out of poverty.

“It is a significant amount of income for a low-income family … losing that will definitely affect families,” Elaine Maag, a senior research associate at the non-partisan Tax Policy Center, told Business Insider.

Boteach said that while she didn’t expect the provision to be part of the bill, she wasn’t surprised that the proposal has been resurrected.

“This is not a new idea, it was not a surprise,” she said. “It’s still sad because you’re trying to market this bill as something that’s going to help families, using the child tax credit as a fig leaf, and even within the fig leaf you’re hurting children.”

#LatinaEqualPay Trending on Twitter as Beaner Babes Demand to be Paid What White Men Earn

Latinas are oppressed by evil whitey. Can’t you tell? Look at the one above. Clearly, she’s oppressed.

Today is her day.

But she’s not getting much sympathy from Mark Dice.

Eva Longoria speaks:

Excerpt from Fortune

Latina Equal Pay Day is dead last. Out of the major demographic groups in the U.S., we make the least per dollar compared to white men. For every dollar white men make, Latinas make 54 cents. That’s like ripping a dollar bill in half—or like working an entire week, but only getting paid through Wednesday afternoon. At this rate, to earn what white men earn by age 60, Latina women would have to work until they’re 90.

I come from a long, proud line of smart, hard-working Mexican-American women, and this injustice strikes deep. So I ask myself: How can we start to address the widespread and enduring gender wage gap problem?

Changing our workplace culture

The first step is a cultural shift in which we acknowledge our unconscious biases and, as a society, believe women when they say the wage gap isn’t a matter of personal choice (e.g. taking time to raise children, not asking for a promotion), but rather a symptom of systemic gender discrimination. Data show that the gap cannot be attributed solely to differences in education, experience, age or even career breaks. The “unexplained” portion of the pay gap is due to pervasive discrimination (conscious and unconscious). According to a poll in partnership with SurveyMonkey, two-thirds of Latina women today perceive large gender and racially biased-pay gaps and one-third cite “unconscious bias” and “sexism” as barriers to racial and gender equality.

No, the unexplained portion can be explained by intangibles, such as the fitness of the worker, her energy levels, her intelligence, and her laziness level.

The Mexicans are pedaling more sh*t on a shingle today on Twitter. Let’s take a look at it.

Tulsi Gabbard calls Mexican inferiority an injustice.

As if demanding equal pay means anyone deserves equal pay. My pay is less than that of Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg. I demand equality.

The ACLU jumps in to support the poor oppressed Latina.

Senator Feinstein jumps in too.

They “deserve” to be paid what a white man makes. I suppose that Mexico gives them what they “deserve.”

Based Pupper puts the lie to the white oppression bullsh*t.

Let’s end this sh*tshow on a high note, with a Tweet from the dumbest of the dumb, our fav, Chelsea Clinton.

Trump Selects Powell for Fed Chairman, Replacing (((Yellen)))

JEROME POWELL. SET TO HEAD UP THE FED.

Greenspan, Bernanke, and Yellen add up to 30 years of Jews being the face of the U.S. Federal Reserve System.

Now a gentile will have that honor, as President Trump choose not to reappoint Janet Yellen as Chair. It’s the norm to reappoint, and I’m certain Ms. Yellen would have been reappointed by Hillary Clinton.

What does it mean to have a non-Jew heading up the Fed? Not much. The show will go on pretty much as it has, with a little tweaking here and there.

If you’re conspiracy-minded, you might speculate that the Jewish financiers who control world money markets see an economic collapse coming and want to make sure that one of their own doesn’t get the blame.

Excerpt from Bloomberg

President Donald Trump plans to nominate Federal Reserve Governor Jerome Powell to the top job at the U.S. central bank, according to four people familiar with the decision.

In Powell, he’ll select a former private-equity executive who favors continuing gradual interest-rate increases and sympathizes with White House calls to ease financial regulations. The president will announce his decision Thursday at 3 p.m. Washington time from the Rose Garden, the White House said in a statement. Powell declined to comment when approached by a reporter outside his Washington-area home.

Market reaction to the news was muted, given broad expectations that Powell would be the pick. The dollar retreated slightly in Asian trading Thursday, and Treasury yields dipped. S&P 500 futures were down modestly as traders consider prospects for U.S. tax cuts.

If confirmed by the Senate, the 64-year-old former Carlyle Group LP managing director and ex-Treasury undersecretary would succeed Fed Chair Janet Yellen, who has raised borrowing costs four times starting in late 2015 and just began scaling back the central bank’s $4.5 trillion balance sheet.

“He represents a bit of the continuation of the status quo without being named Yellen,” said Gennadiy Goldberg, interest-rate strategist at TD Securities. “He’s relatively dovish-leaning on policy, but also willing to undertake some deregulation at the margin. He’s basically a perfect candidate for Trump.”

The decision would cap a months-long White House search that included consideration of re-nominating Yellen, or installing outsiders such as National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn, Stanford University economist John Taylor or former Fed Governor Kevin Warsh. The Wall Street Journal earlier on Wednesday reported that Trump had selected Powell.

A Republican appointed to the Fed in 2012 by Democratic President Barack Obama, Powell has earned a reputation as a non-ideological and pragmatic policy maker. While he hasn’t played a prominent public role in formulating and explaining monetary policy, he has generally backed Yellen’s cautious approach to withdrawing stimulus.

Yellen, 71, who is the first woman to lead the U.S. central bank, will become the first Fed chair since 1979 not to be reappointed to the job.

My choice would have been Professor John Taylor, whom I met briefly a couple of decades ago. I can’t picture him being a tool of the financial oligarchs. His famous (to us economists) Taylor’s Rule would replace Fed politics with simple math. Investopedia presents the Rule this way:

The equation, with some alterations, used by central banks under Taylor’s rule looks like:

i = r* + pi + 0.5 (pi-pi*) + 0.5 (y-y*)

Where:

i = nominal fed funds rate

r* = real federal funds rate (usually 2%)

pi = rate of inflation

p* = target inflation rate

Y = logarithm of real output

y* = logarithm of potential output

Operating with a rule would take the manipulation of the economy out of play.

Which is probably why John Taylor wasn’t picked.

PROFESSOR JOHN TAYLOR. NOT PICKED.
