Bernie Sanders Just Destroyed the
Case For A $15 Minimum Wage

Original Article

Posted By: PageTurner, 7/22/2019 7:57:57 AM

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, for decades an agitator for a government-forced minimum/living wage, announced over the weekend that his campaign’s wage floor will be increased to $15 an hour. To make it work, workers’ hours will be cut. Did he just take the minimum wage issue off the table for Democrats? In 1986, known then as the “socialist mayor of Burlington,” Vermont, Sanders campaigned on raising the state’s minimum wage while running for governor. During one of his runs for the U.S. Senate, where he is serving his third term,

This puts the debate moderators in an awkward spot. Obviously, Bernie should be questioned about his massive hypocrisy. How will they deal with it? And, even though Bernie has turned himself into a target for another candidate to pounce on, they have to keep hands off him because they must protect the Den demand for $15 minimum wage. Oh, the complicated life of the liberal co-dependants!

The issue is will he hire any more staff to compensate for the reduced hours? I doubt it...his candidacy was living on old fumes anyway.

The socialists already did their damage with market wages. What goes up, artificially, doesn’t always come down. Once this $15 idiocy became the law in many states, it takes forever to scrap it.

Bernie unwittingly proves what many newly unemployed people and former business owners know: To give some people a raise to $15/hour, some people have to work fewer hours or none at all. Socialist political experimenters, like Bernie, who have never met a payroll avoid considering the consequences of running out of money. But those who lose their jobs or businesses in order to pay for others to get that raise know the consequences first hand. What will Bernie do for them?

Can't Sanders just sell one of his houses to make payroll? Oh, I forgot.... that would be using his own money.

'faves' in Jeffrey Epstein's little black book?

Jeffrey Epstein, the man dubbed the "Palm Beach Pervert," by Forbes in 2011, is now in jail awaiting trial for running a child-sex racket. Up until now, he's always dodged trouble, but now he's under intense scrutiny by both the press and prosecutors. The idea, of course, was to pin Epstein to Trump, now that the Russia collusion narrative has collapsed. But then there was that intriguing statement by Nancy Pelosi's daughter, that a lot of Democrat "faves" might be going down. Remember this from the Washington Examiner? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s daughter said that some favorite figures of

Bloomberg reports: Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) 2020 presidential campaign has been hit with an unfair labor practice complaint alleging illegal employee interrogation and retaliation against staffers. The July 19 complaint to the National Labor Relations Board, filed by an unnamed individual in Indiana, was posted to the agency’s website late July 22. It comes as tense negotiations

The face of the global warming scare was once that of Al Gore. Now that face belongs to a 16-year-old girl who’s being treated as a prophetess. It’s hard to conceive of a world gone more mad. Greta Thunberg has been thrust into the spotlight, tagged as the child who will lead us away from our inevitable climate disaster — if only we let her. Adults hang on her words, regard her as an omniscient oracle, insist that we are in the presence of our savior. Thunberg’s “voice lets us know we’re in disavowal, and that we’d better wake up.

It doesn't get worse for a leftist when even CNN is warning that your 'economic solution' to the economic problems you've laid out are going to destroy the economy. Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren came out with a big, serious-looking economic plan intoning about a coming economic crash, her own supposed ability to forecast such things, and then calling for free college, a soaring minimum wage, more Dodd-Frank regulations on big bad banks, and lots of free stuff.

For all of Donald Trump’s moral flaws – the women, the profanities, the routine personal insults, the continual unpresidential conduct – he has raised the moral bar in one all-important area: This president has kept a great many of his promises (even if that wall is nowhere near to being built). And this outsized fact will be a huge advantage next year against whichever conventional politician wins the Democratic nomination. CNN’s decision not to allow any “raise your hand” questions in the Democrat candidates’ next round of debates, which the cable news channel will telecast on July 30 and 31 from Detroit, is first and foremost an example

Try the canard that Russia really wants President Trump to win the election. That's been the narrative since the end of 2016 - and has continued well into this year. Here is what is being tweeted now from the U.S. Southern Command: O.K., the first thought that came to mind is perhaps some surprise that Venezuela even has gas for jets at all, or working jets, given the country's lack of spare parts.

Most of the Jewish community has feverishly and piously supported last week’s Democrat-sponsored Resolution condemning President Trump’s remarks against Ilhan Omar. Omar, of course, is a notorious, unrepentant anti-Semite and daily demonizer of Israel. But she has become, for many Jews, a heroine, a civil rights star, a noble cause. Enjoying such support, Omar rewarded the Jewish community by immediately announcing, after the Resolution’s passage, a piece of legislation demanding that Congress vote in favor of BDS against Israel and her Jewish inhabitants.

Miami Herald columnist Andres Oppenheimer, a liberal, has noticed something wimpy going on about Pope Francis and Venezuela: Venezuela’s Conference of Bishops has released a bombshell statement demanding an immediate end of dictator Nicolás Maduro’s “illegitimate and failed government.” So why isn’t Pope Francis saying anything even close to that? Venezuela's bishops put out a fiery statement blasting the brutal, illegitimate Maduro dictatorship, calling for its extinction. Oppenheimer then asks: So what did the pope say after the bishops’ statement? Instead of echoing their demand that Maduro leave office,

It is no coincidence that the streets of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle are full of homeless people, shooting up drugs and discarding their needles on the sidewalks, defecating and urinating wherever they happen to be standing, sitting, or squatting, and accosting passers-by demanding money. The left-wing politicians and their voters tolerate and subsidize this behavior, so they attract people who want to live this way in growing numbers. As the old saying puts it, there’s an easy way and a hard way to solve this problem. And a problem it is, because of the settled science

A tourist was savagely beaten, stomped and spit on by a gang of over a dozen youths at the entrance to the Washington Hilton Hotel around 1 a.m. on July 14, according to Washington, D.C. police who released hotel surveillance video showing the brutal unprovoked attack. The Hilton–located about twelve blocks north of the White House at 1919 Connecticut Avenue and T Street, NW–is a key part of official Washington, playing host to presidents, foreign dignitaries, business and political gatherings including the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner. It is also where President Ronald Reagan was shot by a would-be assassin in 1981.

The most important thing Robert Mueller revealed today in his testimony before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees was that he didn’t really know that much about the work of the investigation that bears his name -- and that he is prone to senior moments with alarming frequency. That he could in no way have been the actual leader of a large team of high-powered lawyers is now obvious to everyone in cringe-worthy detail (snip) He was a BINO, a Boss In Name Only, or, colloquially, a front-man.

Actress Faye Dunaway has been fired from a Broadway-bound play in which she was the only cast member after slapping a member of the crew, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Dunaway was playing Katharine Hepburn in Tea at Five, a new production of the one-woman-show written by Matthew Lombardo and directed by John Tillinger. Tillinger also directed the show’s original 2002 production, which starred Kate Mulgrew. Dunaway reportedly lost her temper moments before the curtain was supposed to rise on a July 10 performance during the show’s Boston tryouts at the Huntington Theatre, first slapping crew members who were attempting to put her wig on, then verbally abusing the cast

"#Christmas planning has begun in the East Wing at the @WhiteHouse," Melania Trump tweeted. "I'm looking forward to sharing our final vision for this unique tradition in the coming months." Many questioned the timing of her tweet considering it came as Mueller was concluding his testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee. He was testifying about the two-year long investigation that concluded that no member of the Trump campaign knowingly conspired with Russia to win the election.

Robert Mueller is a very impressive man. Until he opens his mouth. Or, perhaps, he is just a calcified, barnacle-crusted swamp creature long past his prime. If that’s the case and Democrats forced him out of his retirement home to just play along with their silly partisan fantasies, then they should all be rounded up and arrested for elder abuse. Either way, it’s no wonder why Mr. Mueller fought so hard against testifying publicly before Congress. But there he was: in the bright lights on national television sputtering, bumbling and doddering about some report these people kept talking about. Again and again, Mr. Mueller would wander off topic and his mouth would wander off

A 42-second clip posted to social media on Monday shows the girl, identified as 15-year-old Janise Harris, walking with a group of several other girls and at least one boy when one of the girls suddenly punched her from behind. A witness who was already recording the teens walking then immediately started laughing as the other girls – as many as five at one point — joined the unprovoked attack. “They beating her,” one teen said while chuckling.

The $25 million damages judgment plus the over $6.5 million attorney’s fees and expenses award, puts Oberlin College almost $32 million in debt to Gibson’s Bakery and its owners. Post-judgment interest in Ohio is 5%, which if my math is correct, on $32 million equals $1.6 million a year just in interest, or $4,384 per day. So that $32 million is going to keep growing as the inevitable appeal winds its way through the courts. Interest aside, Oberlin College doesn’t want Gibson’s Bakery to start collecting the judgment by seizing bank accounts, college equipment, and anything else they can get their hands on. Not surprisingly, Oberlin College
