U.S. Census Bureau and AP Pushing Socialism
(Drudge) Gap between haves and have-nots highest in 50 years… (OH, NO! INEQUALITY! GASP!) (AP) Income inequality (WHICH IS A COMMIE TERM) in the United States expanded from 2017 to 2018, with several heartland states among the leaders of the increase, even though several wealthy coastal states still had the most inequality overall, according to figures released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau.
The nation’s Gini Index, which measures income inequality, has been rising steadily over the past five decades. The Gini Index grew from 0.482 in 2017 to 0.485 last year, according to the bureau’s 1-year American Community Survey data. The Gini Index is on a scale of 0 to 1; a score of “0″ indicates perfect equality (WHICH WOULD BE HELL), while a score of “1″ indicates perfect inequality, where one household has all the income.
The increase in income inequality comes as two Democratic presidential candidates, U.S. Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, are pitching a “wealth tax” on the nation’s richest citizens as a way to reduce wealth disparities. (CORRECT ME IF I’M WRONG: INEQUALITY INCREASES AS ALL PEOPLE’S LIVES IMPROVE, EVEN THE SO-CALLED POOREST ARE NO LONGER TRULY POOR. I RECALL MARGARET THATCHER BTFO’D SOME SOCIALIST IN UK ON THIS POINT DECADES AGO.)
On one side, at the peak of their earnings, are baby boomers who are nearing retirement, if they haven’t already retired. On the other side are millennials and Gen Z-ers, who are in the early stages of their work life and have lower salaries, reportedly.
Re: Impeachment… I heard…
Kamala Harris on MSNBC reportedly said that Trump is “the least patriotic president” in the history of America.
Adam Schiff — did he say something like “I love America more than Trump”?
He loves America more than any other president in our lifetimes, and they hate America more than ever in their lifetimes. That’s why they want to get rid of Trump.
I’ve been reading about Trump
It is soooo fun. A journalist and historian whom I actually respect interviewed Trump and Don Jr. I may bring some points.
He was for the death penalty because crime has gone out of control. You can’t tell me it’s not a deterrent.
He spoke about how corrupt the press was in 1990, just making up stuff they knew was not true.
Might have a point from yesterday
Christopher the white nationalist, the ethnostate man, he said something interesting. He said Trump had to pay millions of dollars because he lied or something about Trump University. Paying money is no sign of guilt these days. Lawyers and lawsuits and corrupt judges (and city “leaders”) and frivolous lawsuits (like nearly everything brought by the ACLU) result in payments to corrupt people.
Lawyers are so evil. No wonder whites hate Jews. Trayvon Martin’s family (maybe), Michael Brown’s family, the corrupt and violent Central Park Five, and Eric Garner’s family all got money settlements. They didn’t deserve a dime. If anything they should have paid up. But society is weak and corrupt.

Charles from St. Louis, MO says Americans don’t understand economics and it’s one of the biggest problems today. Charles wonders if Trump knows economics and James remarks about Trump and how he came out of a massive debt so he trusts him. Charles claims Trump wants to get rid of the federal reserve.
Dave from Canada wonders if looking at pretty girls is sinful. He wants to know what James does when one passes by. James loves Jesses take on this where he says men and women are supposed to come together in a fallen state and then overcome it.
Jarvis from California works hard but finds labor has been undercut where he is. Heavy Hispanic population where he lives. He touches on the minimum wage as well.
Senate Pretends the Need for Wall Is Not a National Emergency
(Drudge) Senate again votes to end Trump’s emergency declaration on the wall… (The Hill) Senators voted 54-41 on the resolution to end the National Emergency which Trump used to shift billions of dollars from the military toward wall construction. Under the National Emergencies Act, a resolution ending the declaration needed only a simple majority to clear the Senate, making it likely to be approved.
11 Republican senators voted to nix the declaration. HERE ARE THE ANTI-AMERICAN RINOS, LISTEN CLOSELY: GOP Sens. Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), Roy Blunt (Mo.), Susan Collins (OF COURSE, Maine), Mike Lee (WOW, RINO! Utah), Jerry Moran (Kan.), Lisa Murkowski (OF COURSE, Alaska), Rand Paul (RINO! Ky.), Rob Portman (Ohio), Mitt Romney (DEPORT! Utah), Pat Toomey (Pa.) and Roger Wicker (Miss.) voted to end the president's declaration.
“The vote today is the surest and likely the only way to restore funding the president has stolen from our troops and military projects across the country,” Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said ahead of the vote. EVIL!
Trump’s decision to leapfrog Congress and declare a national emergency came after lawmakers passed a government funding bill that included $1.375 billion for border barriers. But the decision has become a perennial headache for the GOP. Under the National Emergencies Act, Democrats can force a vote on ending Trump’s emergency declaration every six months. The Senate previously voted to end it in February, with 12 Republicans voting with Democrats, but the House was unable to override a veto.
Here’s Evidence of National Emergency: “Dumping”
(Drudge) Local govts spend millions caring for migrants dumped by Border Patrol… THERE’S THAT WORD AGAIN, “DUMPED”! (THAT’S WHAT YOU GET FOR BEING SANCTUARY CITIES!) (USA Today) When U.S. Border Patrol agents started dumping migrants at a San Antonio bus station in late March, sometimes in the middle of the night with no warning, Colleen Bridger didn't know what to do. The assistant city manager wanted to coordinate the drop-off times and how to assess the volume of migrants San Antonio could expect in the future.
The Texas city is 150 miles from the U.S.-Mexico border and had never dealt with an influx of undocumented immigrants before. "I didn't even know the right department or division or office to call," Bridger said. Since then, San Antonio has received more than 31,000 migrants released by the Border Patrol after they requested asylum.
The city converted a former Quiznos restaurant into a migrant processing center, gave them food and medical screenings, provided cellphones so they could call relatives in the U.S, and partnered with a local church to provide overnight bed space. All told, those efforts have cost San Antonio more than $540,000.
USA Today reviewed dozens of communities and found that local governments have spent at least $7 million over the past year to care for thousands of undocumented migrants released after being detained by the federal government.
Leaders in those communities say it's their moral responsibility (AS IF THEY KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT MORALS) to care for migrants who are often sick from their time in Border Patrol facilities (THAT’S USA TODAY TAKING A DIG AT BORDER PATROL; THEY’RE SICK WITH ILLEGAL ALIENS’ DISEASE!), exhausted from their journey and usually out of money.
"We had to respond," this female city manager Colleen Bridger said. "The vast majority of these families [ARE NOT FAMILIES AT ALL, BUT SINGLE PARENTS] have young children [THAT’S THEY’RE SCAM! THEY USE THE KIDS TO GET IN!], so the alternative is having hundreds of [SO-CALLED] families sleeping on the streets." (SEND THEM BACK!)
National Emergency: Immigration System Collapse
(Drudge) Immigration system near collapse… (I TOLD YOU! THAT’S WHAT THE COMMIE DEMS, LEFT AND RINOS WANT!) (USA TODAY) Shelters with at twice as many aliens as they were built to house. Border Patrol agents in roles they aren’t trained to handle. Immigration courts overwhelmed. Local governments facing alien dumping. And, day after day, aliens keep coming.
This year, the sheer number of aliens who overwhelmed U.S. Border Patrol facilities.
In the first six months of 2019, federal agents apprehended 534,758 migrants at the southwestern border – the highest six-month tally of any year since 2008, according to Border Patrol statistics.
(NATIONAL EMERGENCY, HELLOOOO!)
Kindness Institute Is Undoubtedly Anti-Christian and Commie
(Drudge) New UCLA institute will study kindness… OH GOSH. (UCLA Newsroom) University of California, Los Angeles, receives $20 million to establish UCLA Bedari Kindness Institute. A gift from Jennifer and Matthew C. Harris (philanthropists with The Bedari Foundation) will support research on building more humane societies.
The institute, which is housed in the division of social sciences, will support world-class research on kindness, create opportunities to translate that research into real-world practices, and serve as a global platform to educate and communicate its findings. Among its principal goals are to empower citizens and inspire leaders to build more humane societies. “Universities should always be places where we teach students to reach across lines of difference and treat one another with empathy and respect — even when we deeply disagree,” UCLA Chancellor Gene Block said.
“The UCLA Bedari Kindness Institute will bring the best thinking to this vital issue and, I think, will allow us to have a real social impact on future generations.” The institute, which will begin operating immediately, will take an interdisciplinary approach to understanding kindness — through evolutionary, biological, psychological, economic, cultural and sociological perspectives. Matthew Harris, the foundation’s co-founder and a 1984 UCLA graduate, “Much research is needed to understand why kindness can be so scarce in the modern world. As we seek at Bedari to bridge the divide between science and spirituality.”
“In the midst of current world politics, violence and strife, the UCLA Bedari Kindness Institute seeks to be an antidote,” said Darnell Hunt, dean of the UCLA division of social sciences. “Rooted in serious academic work...”
The Kindness Institute will provide seed funding for research projects that examine the social and physical mechanics of kindness and how kindness might be harnessed to create more humane societies.
