September, 2018, Part 4, Political Class Insanity: The Hypocrisy of Democrats and the The Clinton Crime Syndicate and Uranium One Update

It is another month which means it is again time to review the latest political class insanity from Washington and around the world. Political class insanity takes many forms including the wasting of taxpayer wealth, criminal fraud within government programs, inane and stupid political quotes and actions, the inability to create and implement effective and efficient government programs, stupid and ill performing economic policies and strategies, and other forms of insanity that continue to evolve and surprise and shock us.

Let’s get started:

1) We have previously talked about what happens when local and state governments raise the minimum hourly wage too quickly. Restaurants close because owners cannot pay the new, higher wage levels, employees lose benefits as business owners look to save money in other ways to pay the higher wages, and employees lose jobs, i.e. the good news is that your job is getting higher wages but the bad news is that you no longer have a job. In no instance did employees enjoy higher wages, increased benefits, or more job openings as a result of politicians ramming through increases in the minimum wage.

In our previous political class insanity post we talked about the insanity, untrue, and inane reasoning of Congressional candidate, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Today, we continue to debunk her ideas and nonsense as it relates to a business she used to work for:
  • Ocasio-Cortez wants to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour as most socialists want to do.
  • She recently visited an old employer of hers, The Coffee Shop in Union Square New York.
  • Unfortunately, after a 28 year successful business, the owners of the business decided they had to fold down the business because of high rents and the ever increasing local minimum wage increases, the exact type of policy that Ocasio-Cortez wants to impose on many other small businesses. 
  • She visited The Coffee Shop on the last day of its existence.
  • Rather than think about the consequences of economic policies she supports, she light heartedly said that, "I swung by today to say hi one last time, and kid around with friends like old times."
  • I would bet that the now unemployed 150 shop employees did want to “kid around,” given they no longer have careers and income coming into their homes and families.
Obviously, like everything else she does not get, she does not get that overt government interference in the economy always results in bad overall economic consequences. 

2) Even though Robert Mueller has been a special counsel investigating Russian ties to the Trump campaign, of which he has found none, the continuing saga of the Clintons and how cozy they were financially to the Russians continues to be virtually ignored. This is sad because it has been well established that there were real and profitable ties between the Russians and the Clintons. 

Dick Morris, writing for the Western Journalism website on September 1, 2018, laid out the facts as they are today of the Clinton corruption and the Russians:
  • Tony Podesta, the brother of Hillary’s top campaign manager, John Podesta, was paid $180,000 by a Russian government owned company, Uranium One, for the purpose of pushing Hillary to approve the sale of 20% of the U.S. uranium mines to the Russians.
  • The Russians paid Bill Clinton $500,000 to give a single speech in Russia a few weeks before Hillary Clinton had to make a decision on whether to approve the sale of our uranium mines to Russian
  • Moscow commissioned ten spies to infiltrate Clinton’s political organization to push for the uranium mine sale.
  • In addition to Tony Podesta getting $180,000 to make the deal happen (did I mention that he is the brother of Hillary’s top campaign manager for her election effort?!), the Russians gave the Clinton Foundation $145 million at about the same time.
  • We know all of this because of a number of sources including FBI undercover informant Doug Campbell who had infiltrated Uranium One, according to Campbell’s attorney, Victoria Toensing.
  • And yet, John Huber of the Justice Department, who was assigned by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate the whole matter, has not only not come up with anything, he has yet to interview the FBI source inside Uranium One, Campbell.
So, in Seattle and San Francisco you can go to jail for months if you offer someone a plastic straw that was not specifically requested but you can take bribes from a foreign entity in the form of millions and millions of dollars in return for selling off a strategic asset of the American people. Insanity.

3) Democrats like to claim they are the heroes protecting the poor working class in American today. How well they do that is dubious at best.

As discussed above, Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez visited her former coffee shop employer to “kid around” on the shop’s last day of existence, driven out of business by high rent but also higher wages that Ocasio-Cortez advocated for, causing 150 people to lose their jobs. Hardly a positive and logical way to look after the working class.

And apparently Democrat hypocrite in chief, Hillary Clinton, is no better. Clinton is putting together some sort of political organization that will exist from September through mid-December and is looking for “interns” to help staff the entity. Job duties and qualifications include the following: 
  • These internships will require a minimum of three days of work per week.
  • All types of backgrounds and college majors are urged to apply.
  • Specifically: “Interns will provide support to our staff, assisting our work on a wide range of projects. Work will include but will not be limited to: compiling press clips, monitoring social media, conducting research, drafting correspondence, and assisting with office management.” 
  • Applicants need to have, “a high level of professionalism and discretion,” “strong research and writing skills,” “the ability to work collaboratively as part of a team,” “strong interpersonal communication skills,” “a diligent work ethic and a sense of conscientiousness,” and “enthusiasm, dedication, and a positive attitude.”
Oh, and by the way, the internships are unpaid. Thus, you are expected to work at least three days a week for 3-4 months, have the highest qualifications and character, and expect no monetary reward for your efforts. Can you say hypocrite? An established business is forced to pay higher than affordable wages to its employees and as a result has to go out of business, throwing 150 workers into the unemployment pool. Yet the political types that did this damage can get away with basically paying slave wages, i.e. nothing, for their needs. Unreal.

Hypocrisy and idiocy, sounds about right for this chapter of political class insanity. More to come.
