Prominent Dem fundraisers realign to support Trump’s agenda

The losses for DC Democratic lobbyist class just keep coming. Now, after all we’ve gone through over the last 8 months, all the Russia, and the wailing, and the tears, reality is setting in. Lobbyists have to get paid.

Towel, thrown. (At least by many Democrats on K Street.)

Now…Let’s discuss some infrastructure spending huh? See the swamp isn’t so bad Mr. Trump. The water’s fine.

Bernie and Jane Sanders, under FBI investigation for bank fraud, hire lawyers

Bernie Sanders’s economics are terrible. Just awful. No one as old as he is, who has seen what he has, should hold fast to “socialism” the way that he does. On the other hand I don’t dislike him personally and am impressed by his challenge to the Clinton machine.

I’m sorry to see this story. We’ll see how it washes out.

(ACC Book Recommendation) Lenin’s Tomb, The Last Days of the Soviet Empire – By David Remnick

One of the best books I’ve ever read. (I am still reading.) Masterfully written. Over 20 years old now.

How does a society built on lies and death implode? Remnick answers this question in the Soviet context. Just a fantastic exploration.

And for all you well meaning but (in my estimation) deluded newly minted “socialists” this is an absolute must read. By no means some “right-wing” examination. Just an examination of the death of statism taken to its extreme.

Ron Paul explains the Subprime mortgage crisis and predicts the dollar collapse (VIDEO)

If you REALLY want to understand what happened in 2008 read Meltdown by Tom Woods. It’s not a tome. Quick read and common sense.

Everyday people would be wise to understand the basics of what is called “Austrian Economics.” The Austrians, not the people who run the Fed, or bobble along on CNBC and Bloomberg were the ones who were right about The Crash we saw in 2008 (and the Great Depression for that matter).

Restaurant Die-Off Is First Casualty Of California’s $15 Minimum Wage

The good news is more people are cooking at home. I guess.

Look, reality is reality. Restaurants, many anyway, operate on thin margins. A forced higher wage means margins disappear as does the incentive to stay open.

If the work isn’t WORTH $15 an hour and the minimum wage is $15 an hour, that work will go away. It’s not complicated.

So is this the end of Pelosi?

As we said a few months ago, many in the GOP are more than happy to have Ms. Pelosi leading the Dems in the House. And she keeps clinging, Castro style, to power.

Ossoff could have been the begining of something for the Dems, and indeed this apears to be so. But it’s not the “something” they were hoping for.

Oh, for the heady days of hope, change, and Pelosi One, huh Nancy?
