A Family Affair

After putting on a show of comity and fairness, the corruptocrat branch of the Donkey Party aka, the Clinton/Obama Regime. There is no way that cabal was going to give up power and be punted into the night.

The result of this outcome is Bernie Sanders takes it in the shorts, Ellison gets tossed a bone and the Jackass Party will continue on the same downward spiral. Contrary to all the professed sweetness and light, all was not so smooth when the electronic voting devices went missing. Of course this allows for the Old Joe Stalin bit about who counts the votes is more important than who votes.

Tom Perez Elected New DNC Chair

The votes are in, and former Labor Secretary Tom Perez is the new chair for the Democratic National Committee. He wins with 235 votes.

Perez was just one vote short on the first ballot, but secured victory in the second round.

Keith Ellison, who served as Perez’s main opponent, receiving 200 votes, divided Democrats during the campaign, with many party members insisting he was too radical to lead the party, considering his former ties to anti-American organizations and weak stance on U.S.-Israeli relations. Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz even threatened to leave the party should he win the nomination. Yet, many progressives insisted Ellison was the only candidate who could truly lead the grassroots movement in the Democratic party. [snip]

This once more seemed to have the puppetry controls of the Clinton machinery at work. Had Ellison won all of the Old Guard.
Establishment hangers on would have been swept out of power; She’d be in Chappaqua hugging trees or searching for old lesbian friends. And Bill, the summer of interns are just a memory anyway.

Show of Shows

Barnum and Baily will have nothing on the show opening and closing tomorrow with the DNC.
Hooboy, the Democrat National Committee is going to hold in the main ring, actually the only ring in the one ring circus, the Greatest Clown Show ever seen in any political arena.

With the DNC moving so far to the Left, most of your father’s Donkeys don’t recognize them as any part of the American party. And they’re not. The whole program have become a Clown show of Socialists/Marxists/Communists that call themselves Progressives.
The Troika wanting to head this Leftists crowd is:
dnc-leaders

Ellison’s platform for the DNC is simple: Impeach Trump. He also might want women to wear burkas and be caned once or twice a day for the hell of it.

What Bernie is doing hanging around with a Muslim is good grist for the mill. Then again, he votes with that anti-semitic crowd called the Jackass party so “go figure!”

The third clown of this triumvirate is Fauxahontas. Purportedly, she’s 1/32 second Indian of the Mulligatawny Tribe of Mumbai, Oklahoma. With all the crazed ideas necessary to fit into that leadership position, she’s a shoe in to Madam Squaw.

The three should command almost 20% of the voting population in the US including the Walking Dead.
Chuckie Schumer, the Senate Mouth, has been going nuts to no avail. One has to believe that a scorched earth policy is the new best plan and he’s got these three to ride point for the death of the Jackass Party. There steeds will be Black Unicorns.

Watermelon Investing

“Management fees would increase under each of these three divestment scenarios because VPIC commingled funds, where the bulk of VPIC’s fossil fuel were held, would have to be restructured into materially higher-cost SMA [Separately Managed Accounts] funds.”

In the previous posting one can see the loss of Return on Investment (ROI) can quickly become (RoI) Return of Investment.

Divestment report: Climate politics hurts pension fund returns

A study conducted for the Vermont Pension Investment Committee gives fresh ammunition to opponents of divestment from oil and gas in state pension funds.

The 63-page report, conducted by independent consulting firm Pension Consulting Alliance, finds that injecting climate change politics into state worker retirement funds harms fund performance and does nothing for the environment.

Last year, Gov. Peter Shumlin pushed for VPIC to divest Vermont’s state pension fund of Exxon Mobil and 200 other energy stocks. That agenda was strongly opposed by Treasurer Beth Pearce and  VPIC Chair Thomas Golonka.

The report highlights five key concerns about divestment, the first being that divestment imposes high costs and fees.

As of June 30, 2016, about 3.6 percent of Vermont’s $3.74 billion pension fund was invested in fossil fuels. Pearce’s office reported in 2014 that the costs to divest would be $134 million, including an initial $8.5 million and another $10 million in lost returns annually.

“The largest measurable explicit costs of divestment to VPIC would be ongoing increased management fees,” the report states. [snip]

Divestment in Vermont has powerful supporters and opponents.

Support for divestment is championed by 350.org, the Vermont Public Interest Research Group, and Shumlin, among others. Groups lined up against divestment include the Vermont Troopers’ Association, Vermont Retired State Employees Association, Vermont League of Cities and Towns and Vermont State Employees Association.

The authors note that divestment from fossil fuels is “a sparsely used strategy among U.S. public pension plans,” and recommends against the strategy: “We believe that VPIC’s significant proxy voting and engagement efforts on climate risk issues at fossil fuel companies, including ExxonMobil, and investment strategies other than divestment, are better suited than divestment for VPIC to manage risks and opportunities posed by climate change within its role as fiduciary of a U.S. public pension fund.”

These individuals, for the most part are socialists, with no background in economics unless it is in re-distributive Progressive policies of “What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine” governance.

Then they also believe this:

California – LARGEST INSANE ASYLUM IN THE WORLD

Interesting that the LA Times did this. Lou Dobbs reported this on CNN and it cost him his job. The only network we would see this on would be FOX. All the others are staying away from it. Whether you are a Democrat or Republican, this should be of great interest to you!
Just One State – be sure and read the last part… try for 3 times. This is only one State… If this doesn’t open your eyes, nothing will!

From the L.A. Times:

1. 40% of all workers in LA County (10.2 million people) are working for cash; and not paying taxes. This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants, working without a green card.
(Donald Trump was right)

2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.

3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.

4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers.

5. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals;
>>they are here illegally.

6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.

7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.

8. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.

9. 21 radio stations in LA are Spanish-speaking.

10. In LA County, 5.1 million people speak English; 3.9 million, speak Spanish. (There are 10.2 million people, in LA County.)

(All 10 of the above facts were published in the Los Angeles Times)

Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare. Over 70% of the United States’ annual population growth, (and over 90% of California, Florida, and New York), results from immigration. Also, 29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.

We are fools for letting this continue.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Send copies of this letter, to at least two other people. 100, would be even better.

This is only one State…If this doesn’t open your eyes nothing will, and you wonder why Nancy Pelosi wants them to become voters!

Windfall Tax on Retirement Income… Adding a tax to your retirement is simply another way of saying to the American people “you’re so darn stupid that we’re going to keep doing this until we drain every cent from you”. Nancy Pelosi wants a Windfall Tax on Retirement Income. In other words, tax what you have made by investing toward your retirement. This woman is a nut case! You aren’t going to believe this.

Nancy Pelosi wants to put a Windfall Tax on all stock market profits (including Retirement fund, 401K and Mutual Funds)!
Alas, it is true – all to help the 12 Million Illegal Immigrants.
This woman is frightening. She quotes… ‘We need to work toward the goal of equalizing income, (didn’t Marx say something like this?) in our country; and at the same time limiting the amount the rich can invest. (I’m not rich, are you?)

When asked how these new tax dollars would be spent, she replied:

We need to raise the standard of living of our poor, unemployed and minorities. For example, we have an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country who need our help along with millions of unemployed minorities. Stock market windfall profits taxes could go a long way to guarantee these people the standard of living they would like to have as Americans.

(Read that quote again and again and let it sink in.) ‘Lower your retirement; give it to others who have not worked, as you have’ for your money. Send this on to your friends. I just did! This lady is out of her mind!
