OH GREAT: America’s National Debt Surpasses $19 TRILLION DOLLARS

National Debt Clock

The United States recently reached a grim milestone that was largely ignored by the media. Our national debt has now topped $19 trillion dollars.

The Blaze reported:

National Debt Surpasses $19 Trillion for First Time in U.S. History

For the first time ever, the United States’ national debt surpassed $19 trillion, coming in at approximately $19.012 trillion Friday.

After $18 trillion on Dec. 15, 2014, it took a 13 months for the debt to reach the new threshold, which is a slightly quicker climb in debt from years passed. It took about 14 months for the debt to reach $16, $17 and $18 trillion.

Though the national debt has been a hot-button issue for Republicans, and reduction in spending has been a cornerstone of many GOP presidential candidates’ campaigns, spending does not seem to be on the decline. In fact, over the last few years, the federal government has been free to borrow as much as needed.

Several years ago, Congress passed legislation to increase the debt ceiling to a certain level, which required spending to stop once that threshold was reached. But, rather than reign in spending, Congress has instead suspended the debt ceiling, allowing for more borrowing until that suspension ends.

In November of 2015, after having been frozen at $18.1 trillion for several months, the maximum debt limit was suspended and the national debt grew by $339 billion in just one day.

Note to Bernie Sanders supporters: We can’t give away things for “free” when we have more debt than could be repaid in a generation.

Eric Greitens Under Fire – May Be Paying Campaign Staff Illegally

Missouri Gubernatorial candidate Eric Greitens is under fire yet again for campaign finance issues.

As previously reported by Progressives Today the Greitens campaign has been receiving large donations from prominent leftists and has refused to return a massive donation from billionaire hedge fund manager Steve Cohen who was recently banned by the SEC.

Now This:

Documents filed late last week with the Missouri Ethics Commission claim Eric Greitens’ campaign is paying two staff members illegally.

The documents obtained EXCLUSIVELY by Progressives Today allege that the Greitens campaign has failed to report that staff members Barth Fraker and Robbie Brouk are being paid through The Greitens Group LLC for work being done on behalf The Greitens For Governor campaign.

The complaint reads:

GREITENS FOR GOVERNOR IS EMPLOYING AND PAYING TWO PEOPLE, BARTH FRAKER AND ROBBIE BROUK,
AND PAYING THEM THROUGH AN LLC, THE GREITENS GROUP. THIS IS IN VIOLATION OF RSMO SECTION 130,
SUBSECTIONS .011 (12) (B), WHICH STATES THAT IF A PERSON IS WORKING FOR A PRIVATE COMPANY,
BUT IS OFFERING THEIR WORK AND SERVICES FOR A CAMPAIGN, THAT CAMPAIGN HAS TO DISCLOSE HOW MUCH
THEY ARE PAYING HIM AND REPORT THAT AMOUNT AS AN IN-KIND CONTRIBUTION. THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING FOR GREITENS FOR MISSOURI SINCE AT LEAST JUNE 2015.

Greitens Ethics violation 1
Greitens complaint2

A troubling pattern seems to be forming around the Greitens campaign whose main platform is cleaning up Jefferson City through ethics reform.

We await the Missouri Ethics Commission’s investigation and the results.

Bernie Sanders Suddenly Thinks Hillary’s Emails ARE A VERY SERIOUS ISSUE (VIDEO)

Bernie emails serious

At the first Democrat debate, Bernie said people were sick of hearing about Hillary’s “damn” emails. Now that Iowa is at stake, he’s singing a different tune.

The Washington Free Beacon reported:

Sanders on Clinton Emails: ‘I Think This Is a Very Serious Issue’

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) said he considered Hillary Clinton’s private email server investigation to be “a very serious issue” Sunday on CNN, while also adding there was a legal process taking place that he did not want to politicize.

At the conclusion of their interview, State of the Union host Jake Tapper reminded Sanders of his famous remarks at the first Democratic debate in October, when he told Clinton the American people were “sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails.”

On Friday, the Obama administration announced that 22 more emails from her private server would not be released because they had been classified as top secret.

“Should voters take from those comments that you think nothing was done wrong when it comes to how Secretary Clinton handled classified information, or is that not a fair–?” Tapper asked, before Sanders cut in.

“No, no,” Sanders said, wagging his finger. “No, that is not, I think, a fair assessment. I think this is a very serious issue. I think there is a legal process right now taking place … I get criticized. ‘Bernie, why don’t you attack Hillary Clinton?’ There is a legal process taking place. I do not want to politicize that issue. It is not my style.”

Too little too late, Bernie.

Bernie Sanders Supporters Have No Idea They’re At Event Sponsored By BILLIONAIRES (VIDEO)

Bernie Supporters Move On

Roger Simon of PJ Media recently visited a Bernie Sanders event that was sponsored by MoveOn.org and spoke to Sanders supporters.

While they were quick to parrot Bernie’s disdain for billionaires, none of them knew that MoveOn is mainly supported by George Soros and other left-wing billionaires.

When confronted with this information, one supporter says:

Um, well, if they’ve supported Bernie and they’re supporting this rally then they must feel that there’s change that is needed.

Watch the whole thing below:

Good news, everyone. Billionaires are OK as long as they support the right candidates.

If it weren’t for double standards, the left wouldn’t have any.

Hillary Supporting Super PAC Gets $6 Million Dollar Donation FROM GEORGE SOROS

George Soros

Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and other Democrats are always complaining that we need to get big money out of politics but none of them ever seem to have a problem with George Soros.

The Hill reports:

George Soros gives $6 million to pro-Clinton super-PAC

Billionaire George Soros contributed $6 million to a super-PAC supporting Hillary Clinton last month, according to the committee’s latest financial statement.

The investor has now contributed a total of $7 million in this election cycle to Priorities USA Action, which raised $41 million on behalf of Clinton in 2015.
In the last 6 months, the super-PAC raised $25.3 million, meaning that Soros’s contribution accounted for almost a quarter of its fundraising haul.

Also making large contributions to the committee in 2015 were media mogul Haim Saban and his wife Cheryl, who gave a total of $5 million, philanthropist Laure Woods, who gave $2.3 million, and investor Donald Sussman, who contributed $2.5 million.

This group, along with Soros, accounted for two-fifths of Priorities total fundraising in 2015.

Soros, a longtime Democratic donor, was a fundraising force for John Kerry’s 2004 presidential run.

He also gave a million to Priorities in 2012 when it was supporting President Obama’s reelection campaign.

Isn’t our democracy threatened by billionaires?

Let’s hear the left say that now.
