Dave Brat: Everyone Should Get To Enjoy The Dignity of Work-Keep Farm Bill

Populist Media

Published

on

Monday, Rep. Dave Brat, (R-Virginia) has an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal making the case to keep the House-passed work requirement provisions in the 2018 Farm Bill.

“Get to work Senators,” wrote Brat, a member of the House Freedom Caucus.

“This week a congressional conference committee gets to work resolving the differences between the House and Senate versions of the 2018 farm bill, which authorizes the federal food-stamp program. Among the most contested issues will be the work requirements for able-bodied, single adults passed by the House. Republicans must stand up for fiscal responsibility and the dignity that comes with work.

I am deeply concerned for the poor and vulnerable. I believe in a social safety net for those who are truly in need. Unfortunately, America’s current safety nets don’t always live up to their promise or purpose. Since 1965, the percentage of working-age men outside the labor force—that is, men who are neither working nor seeking work—has more than tripled, rising from 3.3% to 11.6%. If we really want to combat poverty, we should evaluate how successful our social programs are at moving people off public assistance—not how many stay on. The Democrats’ preferred welfare strategy encourages dependency on government. The GOP would like to see welfare recipients become self-sustaining workers. The reason is simple: Work affirms human dignity,” said Bratt.

BRAT WANTS TO ALLOW EVERYONE THE DIGNITY OF WORK

With the historic low unemployment numbers in black and Hispanic populations, Brat wants everyone to enjoy the opportunity of hard work. Democrats resist this message.  Brat calls on the Senate to support his economic ideas.

STANDING UP FOR THE LITTLE GUY

In this 2014 WSJ article, “Dave Brat the Economics Professor Who Defeated Eric Cantor

“Mr. Brat’s victory was fueled by fury with the GOP establishment on fiscal issues and immigration.  He campaigned on opposing the 2008 government bailout program, the budget deal reached by Rep. Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D., Wash.) and a general sense that leadership ignored the little people. 

“The lives of most Americans aren’t getting any better year after year.  Their wages are down or flat as the cost of living is going up.”

Brat is up for re-election in 2018

PAY UP: Trump Demands California Pays Back $3.5 Billion They Owe The Federal Government For Bullet Train

Yvette Munoz

Published

With the controversial Green New Deal making headlines after the Democrats took a radical step towards banning over 95% of vehicles, our only option would be the electric bullet train as our main transportation, if unable to purchase an electric car. However, Tuesday during  his first State of the State Address, the newly elected Governor of California Gavin Newsom announced he will change the project for the bullet train and instead make it travel from Merced to Bakerfied not from Sacramento to San Diego, as it was originally planned. Due to high taxation, what started as a project of $33 billion with a down payment of $9.5 billion in 2008, after a decade it skyrocketed to $77 billion. The Federal Government loaned $3.5 billion for the bullet train under terms to be repaid in December of 2022.

Now that the Governor changed the route and said that for the critics who say “it’s a train to nowhere, that’s wrong and offensive,”  President Trump took the opportunity to demand the $3.5 billion to be returned to the Federal Government. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars. They owe the Federal Government three and a half million dollars,” tweeted the President, “We want that money back now. Whole project is a ‘green’ disaster!”

The Governor of California responded to Trump’s tweet calling his statement “Fake news.” Governor Newsome also said he will not return the money, “This is CA’s money, allocated by Congress for this project. We’re not giving it back.” The Governor insinuating that the President is desperate to collect money for the southern border.

The agreement between the state of California and the Federal Government is to finish the planned bullet train by 2022; Otherwise, the state must repay the Federal Government the $3.5 billion that was loaned by the previous administration if they decided to cancel the project. However, Governor Newsom rather finish “the train to nowhere” instead of returning the money to President Trump.

American Dominance In Oil Is Here While Democrats Demand Impeachment

Populist Media

Published

on

Sunday, news hit the public that for the first time in most of their lives they now live in a country that is an exporter of Oil, as opposed as being dependent upon warring nations at the mercy of third world nations.

“America turned into a net oil exporter last week, breaking almost 75 years of continued dependence on foreign oil and marking a pivotal — even if likely brief — moment toward what U.S. President Donald Trump has branded as “energy independence.”

The shift to net exports is the dramatic result of an unprecedented boom in American oil production, with thousands of wells pumping from the Permian region of Texas and New Mexico to the Bakken in North Dakota to the Marcellus in Pennsylvania,” said Bloomberg News.

JOBS- JOBS- JOBS AS PROMISED

“We’re in the money. We have a lot of what it takes to get along… ”

Having more production means more jobs means less entitlements from taxpayers pocket to their neighbors.  Being overly burdened with dependents and overly taxed s  a is a top complaint from the beginning of time.

GOOD NEWS?

Some might think that the Democrats could join the rest of the country in celebration of this new independence and wealth, however, demands for impeachment only got louder from the left.

HOWEVER, FROM THOSE NOT IN UPSIDE DOWN WORLD:

LaRouche Pac Calls On Trump To Declassify All Mueller Probe Documents

Populist Media

Published

on

Monday, Populist Media spoke with Marsha Mallouk, a political activist with the Lyndon LaRouche Pac, a group according to their site that is dedicated to “providing the intellectual and political leadership in the fight for a new international economic order for the planet, for the purpose of ending the historic imperial control of monetarism and unleashing mankind’s creative powers as a species.”

“Russia-Gate is really British- Gate and we have had boots on the ground activism going on for many years to educate people about our platform,”Mallouk told Populist Media.

“We are very concerned about the upcoming release of the Mueller report, and what it will do to spread the disinformation that President Trump has done anything worth impeachment, which will only further the destruction of our economy,” she said.

RECENT VIDEO BY HER GROUP:

 

 

THEIR LATEST NEWS:

“Yesterday, on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Alan Dershowitz, a frequent defender of President Trump on behalf of the U.S. Constitution, said that Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel Report will be designed to be “politically devastating” to the President and that it could come down the pike soon, with the White House working on its response. Dershowitz continues to state that President Donald Trump will not face criminal charges from Mueller but could face legal jeopardy based on ongoing and simultaneous investigations in the Southern District of New York concerning his financial dealings. These investigations have been coordinated with Mueller’s probe. Dershowitz implied that Mueller would structure his report to be as damaging as possible to Trump in order to fuel impeachment proceedings in the House.

According to Dershowitz, both the Mueller report and the President’s response will be released publicly.”

TWITTER ACTIVISM:

SOLUTION: DECLASSIFY

LaRouche is calling on President Donald J. Trump to declassify all of the documents pertaining to the Mueller Probe.  They are not alone.

SIGN THE PETITION, IF YOU AGREE:

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Mr. President:

  1. The Congressional investigations into the origins of the ongoing, fake Russiagate coup against your presidency have revealed that the Obama Administration used false information and evidence fabricated in London, by official and unofficial British intelligence agents, to justify an unprecedented FBI counterintelligence investigation of your campaign.
  2. Former MI6 agent Christopher Steele told his Department of Justice handler, former Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, that Steele would “do anything” to prevent Donald Trump’s election and was desperate to stop it from happening. Steele was the author of the notorious fake dossier claiming that Donald Trump, having previously been sexually compromised by Vladimir Putin, was working with Putin to defeat Hillary Clinton. Steele’s bizarre, amateurish, and totally fake dossier was used by a corrupted FBI to justify steps in its illegal investigation, despite the fact that this dossier was paid for by the Clinton campaign and its facts were unverified.
  3. According to multiple published reports, Obama’s CIA Director, John Brennan, convened an illegal intelligence task force at the CIA to launder and investigate fake dirt on Trump, produced by a British spy circle led by former MI6 chief Sir Richard Dearlove for purposes of destroying the Trump presidential campaign. Brennan did this because, he said, Donald Trump’s election would jeopardize the “special relationship” between U.S. and British intelligence agencies. Dearlove played a key role in the faked intelligence which led the United States into the Iraq War.
  4. LaRouchePAC, through a previous petition to President Trump on August 10, 2017 — and to Congress on December 29, 2017 — called for complete exposure of the British attempt to nullify the 2016 U.S. election based on British strategic interests. At the time, virtually no one else thought the British were the source of foreign interference in the 2016 elections. That fact is now widely recognized. The so-called “resistance,” both within and without the government, is stalling further release of key documents to Congressional committees in order to win the midterm elections and begin impeachment proceedings in the House of Representatives.
  5. The British are conducting an international campaign to smear and militarily and economically confront Russia and China because the City of London financial and imperial order is economically and morally bankrupt and has no plan to build a future for humanity over the course of the next 50 years. This British campaign is not in the interest of the United States, and, Mr. President, you were elected in substantial part on the promise to end America’s useless wars on behalf of British strategic objectives.
  6. The complete exposure of the British/Obama Administration subversion of the Trump presidency represents a unique opportunity for Americans to take our country back: to, once again, fully embrace the profound difference between the British imperial system and the American system of political economy created by Alexander Hamilton and advanced by Lyndon LaRouche. The British system produces the degradation of the majority of the population for the wealth of the few; the American system produces general prosperity.
