"They see themselves as the educated, sensible minority with tender sensibilities and true humanistic views... who must... must... take a stand in the globalist crusade against the barbaric Neanderthals of the proletariat and populist serfs..."
...some bureaucrats in New York City think that it is sexual harassment for a professor to base grades in part on effort and classroom behavior. It appears that the bureaucrats decided that “effort” could be interpreted as an invitation for female students to trade sex for higher grades.
But after 100-years of mismanagement, the last eight being in the radically extreme, the Fed has scored a big fat rotten tomato. The data still stinks – GDP’s still anemic. But the downside of their actions is downright putrid.
Barney Frank, a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton, said it would be a mistake for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates before the election. Frank advised the Fed board not to risk destabilizing markets and perhaps the broader economy a few weeks before Election Day.“I think it would be a mistake to do it this close to the election,”
Politicians are all corrupt; those few who do initially join to "help the people" either soon get corrupted, or are mulched out of the system. None are more corrupt than those who are at the very top of American politics; the so-called "survivors." Some politicians made the mistake of admitting their own wrong-doings, and others have "whistleblow"-ed on the corrupt nature of American politics.
Overnight Hillary Clinton, in her latest populist push to present herself as "one of the people" wrote a NYT op-ed explaining "How I'd Rein In Wall Street", we were wondering if it would include draining Wall Street balance sheets with mandatory and far greater donations to her campaign by Wall Street firms - a strategy that may actually work as it hits banks where it hurts the most: their money.

Manhattan has been transformed into nothing more than an oligarch playground, or as some call it, “Disneyland for Wall Street.” We have discussed at length the head-shakingly insane money-laundering inflows that are 'stashed' into NYC real estate but, as the following reports, one of the most shocking and disturbing revelations from that article was the fact that: "The Census Bureau estimates that 30 percent of all apartments in the quadrant from 49th to 70th Streets between Fifth and Park are vacant at least ten months a year." Forget China, ghost residences come to the US. Welcome to Planet Oligarchy, where empty skyscrapers loom over the hordes of freedom-hating, destitute slaves.
