  • Nein, Nein, Nein: Herman Cain Says He Won't Withdraw From Fed Board Consideration
    "Nein, Nein, Nein." That is Herman Cain's response (loosely translated to German) to the White House's subtle hints that he should drop his candidacy for the Fed Board. One day after Bloomberg reported that the White House is in discussion with candidates to replace Herman Cain and Stephen Moore following a widespread outcry over their candidacy, on Wednesday the WSJ reported that Herman Cain he has no intention of withdrawing his name from consideration for a seat on the Federal Reserve Board, despite a clear lack of sufficient support - even among Republicans - for Senate confirmation if President Trump nominates him. The former pizza company executive said that he’s “very committed” to sticking with the process of being vetted by the White House as it considers whether to formally nominate him for the position, the WSJ reported following an interview with the failed presidential candidate. He said the Fed needs “new voices” and it has been “too quick” to raise interest rates in the past, a view he expressed to Trump and his top economic adviser Lawrence Kudlow in a meeting in late January at the White House. In doing so, he confirms that Trump is aggressively seeking to stack the Fed board with doves so that the Fed will cut rates ahead of the all important 2020 presidential election to avoid a recession which would likely cripple Trump's chances for a second term. “The president asked me one simple question…He said, ’Would you consider doing this if you make it through the process?’ I said yes. Didn’t hesitate,” Cain told the WSJ during the interview at his office in suburban Atlanta. Despite Cain's refusal to withdraw, his rejection is all but assured after four Republican senators said last week they wouldn’t support Cain due to concerns including his conservative activism and sexual-harassment allegations, which he has denied. Unless some of those senators change their stance, or unless Cain manages to win Democratic or Independent support which will not happen, he would leave him short of the votes needed for confirmation. Sensing that he is a lost cause, the White House has taken a noncommittal tone about Cain’s chances of making it through the process. On Tuesday, Larry Kudlow said “it will probably be up to Herman Cain if he wants to stay in that process or not.” Ironically, Cain said it was Kudlow’s idea to consider him for the Fed job in January, after Trump had been venting his frustration about interest-rate increases for months. Cain said the last time they spoke, Kudlow encouraged him to hang in there—though he couldn’t specify when exactly that was. “What Kudlow was doing was giving me an out, and I appreciate that, but I don’t want an out. I don’t want an out,”  Cain said, adding that he doesn’t think the White House is getting cold feet about his potential nomination, even though it clearly is. “You know that the president is a fighter, and Kudlow is a fighter. They might be getting a lot of blowback from some folks, I don’t know. But I don’t think they’re getting uncomfortable with it.” And while Cain refuses to accept reality, Trump will have no choice but to find one - or perhaps two - new uberdoves to replace the current duo he has nominated, and whose odds of being approved are virtually nil. As such, we once again recommend AOC, for the simple reason that if there is one person who can finally end the Fed, it would be the upstart Democratic Socialist, who will sooner or later mandate the Fed to print the roughly $100 trillion needed to fund her Green New Deal, and in doing so end the reign of the reserve currency once and for all.

  • San Francisco, Los Angeles, & Seattle: 3 Formerly Beautiful West Coast Cities Have Become Hellholes
    Authored by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog, Once upon a time, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle were three of the most beautiful cities on the entire planet.  I know that this is hard to imagine today, but there was a time when millions of people eagerly moved out to the west coast for a better quality of life.  Sadly, the reverse is true today.  Millions of people are moving away from our major cities on the west coast because of the hellholes that they have become.  A former Seattle police officer that was recently interviewed by a reporter from KOMO News  was very honest about the fact that he would never want to raise a family in Seattle because of the hellhole that it has become.  Every night he saw the worst of Seattle firsthand, and he finally felt forced to quit because city officials would not allow him to effectively do his job.  An explosion of homelessness in our major west coast cities has fueled a wave of crime, drugs and human degradation unlike anything we have seen before, and in many cases our law enforcement officials have their hands tied and are literally being prevented from cleaning up the streets. Right now, more than half a million people are homeless in the United States.  As the economy gets worse, that number will continue to rise. Many homeless Americans are law-abiding citizens that have just had a tough break. Everyone gets knocked down in life at some point, and we need to do all that we can to help those law-abiding citizens get back on their feet. But because of their ultra-liberal policies, some of the major cities on the west coast have become magnets for drug addicts, serial criminals, sex offenders, illegal immigrants and people that have simply heard about all of the “free benefits” that are being offered.  As a result, the streets of those cities have become a showcase for the social decay that is sweeping across our nation. Let’s start with San Francisco.  According to one report, it is home to more than 28,000 homeless people, and that would make San Francisco the city with the third largest homeless population in the United States. Others feel like that number is way too low, and the truth is that it is exceedingly difficult to count the homeless. After all, how are you supposed to accurately count people that don’t want to be counted? What we do know is that San Francisco is a huge magnet for drug addicts.  The city handed out 5.8 million free syringes in 2018, and that number would seem to suggest a homeless population far in excess of 28,000. And as all those drug addicts aimlessly wander through the streets, many of them use those streets as their own personal toilets.  Over the past 8 years, more than 118,000 reports of human feces in the streets have been filed with city authorities… Since 2011, there have been at least 118,352 reported instances of human fecal matter on city streets. New mayor, London Breed, won election by promising to clean things up. However, conditions are the same or worse. Last year, the number of reports spiked to an all-time high at 28,084. In first quarter 2019, the pace continued with 6,676 instances of human waste in the public way. In addition to endless piles of poop, the drug addicts are also endlessly committing property crimes in order to pay for their drug habits. Each year, there are more than 6,000 property crimes per 100,000 residents in San Francisco.  That is about four times the rate of property crime that New York City has reported. Mayor Breed would like to get a lot of these homeless people off of the streets, but finding a place to put them has been problematic.  Residents of one wealthy liberal neighborhood are currently fighting like mad to keep a proposed homeless shelter away from their gated mansions… A wealthy liberal neighborhood in San Francisco whose residents cast the most votes for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election is fighting against a proposal to build a new homeless shelter near their gated mansions. Mayor London Breed has sponsored legislation to fast track a homeless shelter that would house 200 people. However, wealthy liberals living in the affected area have set up a GoFundMe to stop the project which has already hit $80,000 of its $100,000 target. Things are certainly not any better in Los Angeles. According to the same report mentioned above, L.A. has nearly twice as many homeless people as San Francisco… Los Angeles has the second largest population of people exploring homelessness, according to a new report. The LA area contains 55,200 homeless people, according to data released by the Bay Area Council Economic Institute. The homeless population in L.A. has surged 75 percent in six years, and this has happened during a time when the economy has been relatively stable. So how bad are things going to become when the economy starts getting really bad? When I was running for Congress, one of the people that came to help the campaign had spent a lot of time in some of the worst parts of Los Angeles.  He told me about the public drug use, the constant crime and the human degradation that is seemingly everywhere.  This greatly saddened me, because Los Angeles was once a magnificent city.  In fact, at one point in my life I wanted to live there. But not anymore.  Today, millions of people are leaving California and never looking back because of the utter hellhole the entire state has become. Further up the coast, the city of Seattle is experiencing similar issues.  Not too long ago, a veteran Seattle reporter named Eric Johnson produced an hour-long documentary entitled “Seattle Is Dying”, and if you have not seen it yet I would strongly recommend taking the time to watch it. Since it was first released, it has been viewed almost 2 million times on YouTube… In the past two weeks, Seattle Is Dying has garnered 38,000 shares on Facebook and nearly 2 million views on YouTube. The report has clearly resonated with anxious, fearful, and increasingly angry Seattle residents. Exhausted by a decade of rising disorder and property crime—now two-and-a-half times higher than Los Angeles’s and four times higher than New York City’s—Seattle voters may have reached the point of “compassion fatigue.” According to the Seattle Times, 53 percent of Seattle voters now support a “zero-tolerance policy” on homeless encampments; 62 percent believe that the problem is getting worse because the city “wastes money by being inefficient” and “is not accountable for how the money is spent,” and that “too many resources are spent on the wrong approaches to the problem.” One of the moments in the documentary that really touched me was when a concerned resident described how drug addicts have been leaving needles and human waste in the graveyard near his home.  The homeless have erected tents all around the graveyard, and he can clearly smell urine whenever he walks down the streets. He would like to fix things, and he is fed up enough that he has decided to run for city council.  But he is facing an uphill battle, because Seattle has been entirely taken over by socialists.  The following comes from Mac Slavo… The entire video is about an hour long, but it is pretty easy to see where Seattle continues to go wrong. A heavy tax burden, regulations that push out businesses, and a power-hungry group of totalitarian sociopaths have been slowly eroding the city. The decay of Western civilization can be seen up and down the entirety of the West coast. Some say it’s by design, others disagree. But the commonality is that all of the cities are being pushed into poverty by illusions and lies of socialists. Calling Seattle anything other than a leftist’s paradise would be inaccurate. The city has all of the laws the socialists want, yet it’s killing itself because of it. In life, the decisions that we make have consequences, and San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle are now experiencing the consequences of decades of incredibly foolish decisions. But of course they are far from alone.  All across the country there are thousands of communities where social decay is exceedingly evident, and it is getting worse with each passing year. If we want to change the trajectory of our future, we have got to start doing things differently. Because if we keep doing the same things, we are going to keep getting the same results, and our country is going to continue falling apart right in front of our eyes.

  • AOC Taunts Republicans For Trying to Keep Her From Coming to Coal Country
    New York Congresswoman and Democratic media star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is taunting Kentucky Republicans for getting cold feet after she accepted an invitation to visit coal country. On Tuesday, the congresswoman who has championed the Green New Deal dunked on her colleagues from the Bluegrass State who are no longer so keen to have her visit. “GOP’s getting scared that up close, their constituents will realize I’m fighting harder for their healthcare than their own Reps,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. GOP’s getting scared that up close, their constituents will realize I’m fighting harder for their healthcare than their own Reps https://t.co/TVSafpJWEd — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 16, 2019 And she continued today: GOP thought they could catch us with a bluff. Now we’ve got ‘em on their back foot stutter-stepping #TooLate https://t.co/DY15KPy9Tv — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 17, 2019 You know what’s interesting? Last month I invited @RepAndyBarr to come visit us in the Bronx and offer perspective in our MSNBC Climate Town Hall. He said no, because UK had an NCAA game that night. Fair. So I offered to fly him home in time for the game. He still said no. https://t.co/ZP2ltnEBc4 — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 17, 2019 The flap over the invitation began at a House Financial Services Committee hearing several weeks ago. Rep. Andy Barr (R-KY) responded to AOC’s fiery viral defense of the Green New Deal by inviting her “to come to Eastern Kentucky where thousands of coal miners no longer have paychecks” so she could hear their concerns about the proposal. AOC told Barr, “I’d be happy to. In fact, when I first started my campaign, the first place I went was Kentucky.” She added that “I’d also like to note that in the Green New Deal, one of the things that I advocate for is fully funding the pensions of coal miners in West Virginia and throughout Appalachia because we want a just transition to make sure we’re investing in jobs across those swaths of the country.” But last week, Barr sent a letter to Ocasio-Cortez withdrawing the invitation unless she apologized to Rep. Dan Crenshaw over a Twitter beef involving Crenshaw’s attack on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MI). A spokesman for AOC told the local “Luckily, Kentucky has open borders,” and indicated she could go with or without the invite. And then on Monday, Rep. James Comer (R-KY) seemed to accept Hey Kentucky! host Matt Jones‘ suggestion that the feud with Crenshaw was simply a pretext to avoid having the visit backfire. Comer said that there was no “upside” to bringing AOC to Kentucky, and added that “Republicans are making a mistake picking on her. I think we need to be very prepared when we debate her on issues that we’re having a hard time with.” Comer repeatedly praised AOC for being “intelligent” and “prepared,” and said Republicans need to make sure that we’re debating the right people. Watch Barr’s invitation to AOC above, via the House Financial Services Committee.
