News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Feb. 8, 2019:  Life can be so difficult for Cry Babies …

You do not have to go far to find out.

All you need to do is listen to three famous Cry Babies …

Michael Bloomberg, Lloyd Blankfein and of course The Idiot Howard Schultz. But there are so, so many more. Just go to any list of the 1 %. But these Three Stooges will do as poster children for absurd privilege.

They prove so very well how life’s Biggest WINNERS are LOSERS!

This episode, I am introducing a brand-new famous media partner, The Washington Post. Yes, even though it is owned by the richest $$$$ Cry Baby of them all – the one and only Jeff Bezos – and it rhymes with Bozo.

Indeed, these three – Bloomberg, Blankfein and Schultz are featured in this week’s episode – compliments of The Washington Post and an article there on Wednesday that “forced” me to change subjects for this episode.

Too bad this story in The Washington Post was not focused on Bloomberg, Blankfein and Bezos, then I could have written about The Three Bs – which rhymes with bastards. Instead we have 2Bs and an S or BS. Fat Chance this article would have mentioned Bezos, the sole owner of The Post. It pays to be the richest person on Earth! You can buy anything and everything if you want.

Anyway, let’s dig in to this article and leave Bezos on the side for now. Hope he does not fire anyone at The Post for publishing this article about his fellow Billionaires – and find out why these three babies are so, so sad they are crying all the way to the bank, day after day all the time now.

I am going to let The Washington Post and the two writers/reporters – Damien Paletta and Jeff Stein tell their story titled: “Billionaires strike back as Democrats embrace higher taxes, economic populism.”

HOW DARE THEY and make Billionaires CRY? How mean they are!

I will let them tell the story themselves. I will add very little. No need as they do very well telling this story on their own and I can use the break too.

This story speaks for itself LOUD AND CLEAR!!!

By the way, let me first offer some ‘insider stuff’ not generally available as a special for my readers. The episode I had intended for this week was titled: “CHOOSING GREATNESS,” based on the theme of Trump’s State Of The Union speech. I was going to take up his challenge and prove ….

YES WE CAN choose Greatness by dumping Trump in 2020!

Maybe next week??? Anyway, this newer story is very much about Billionaire President Donald Trump as well as these three “club members.”

So finally now, let’s dig heavily into this Washington Post story …

“A wave of liberal economic populism has caught a number of left-leaning billionaires and Wall Street executives off-guard, and they are scrambling to beat back tax and regulatory proposals that could have profound implications for the economy.”

“…the tension, which has escalated rapidly in the past week, shows how business leaders are struggling to come to grips with a party that has lost many of its corporate-friendly voices.

Wo the rich and powerful. CRY with them… (not).

“The Clinton and Obama administrations had strong ties to Wall Street and California technology leaders, but an emerging group of liberal leaders has rejected such relations.”

WAKE UP Progressives and that includes The Saintly One Barack Obama!

Now let’s get to The Cry Babies featured in the Washington Post story …

“Leading the resistance, so far, are two potential 2020 presidential candidates, former Starbucks chief executive Howard Schultz and former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, as well as former Goldman Sachs chief executive Lloyd Blankfein. Each has spoken out in recent days about what they view as overly liberal proposals on taxation and regulation from prominent Democrats.”

That’s right. Schultz, Bloomberg, Blankfein – RESISTANCE fighters!!

In the WORST possible way as counter-revolutionaries of The Old Guard.

“All three have criticized President Trump but are warning that some proposals from Democrats risk pushing the country too far left and alienating broad swaths of voters.”

YES, alienating the 1%. How terrible …..

WO are the rich and powerful. CRY with them (not).

So here is The Truth …

“It should come as no surprise that a few billionaires want to continue to hoard as much wealth as possible, increasing their corrupting influence over our political system,” said Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). “The reality is we cannot make progress on the greatest challenges of our time — whether climate change, student debt or health-care costs — unless we ask those with the most to give in our society to contribute more.”

Can you believe this?  Can you stop CRYING for them?

“The crux of many of the new proposals is an attempt to realign economic policy in a way that raises taxes on the wealthiest Americans and, in some cases, forces companies to share more income with their workers instead of with their shareholders. Democrats propose to spend some of that new revenue on programs they believe would help lower-income and middle-class Americans, such as by expanding government-run health care and assisting with college tuition.”

WO are the rich and powerful. CRY with them (not).

President Trump as usual knows what is going on here …

“The White House has sought to seize on these proposals in recent days, alleging that Democrats are working to tilt the country into socialism. America will never be a socialist country,” Trump said during his State of the Union speech Tuesday.”

Those EVIL Progressives want to DESTROY America by taking from the 1% what they don’t deserve and giving it to the rest of us! Shameful!

WO are the rich and powerful. CRY with them (not).

“Alice Rivlin, who was a top economic official during Bill Clinton’s presidency, said Democrats risk overestimating the public’s willingness to back some of their proposals and could create a backlash that costs them political support.”

That’s right Alice, the 1% deserve more ALL 100%. They earned it!

And can you believe this from an elected Congress Member?

“I am definitely buoyed by the fact the American people like the idea of much higher taxes for the very wealthy,” Schakowsky said, stressing that talks with Ocasio-Cortez on the plan were preliminary. “It absolutely could be a big deal. . . . I think the atmosphere in which we’re working has changed.” This is TREASONOUS. America is NOT a Communist country.

WO are the rich and powerful. CRY with them (not).

It gets worse ….

“(Senator) Warren, who is running for president, has proposed a 2 percent annual tax on wealth above $50 million and a 3 percent annual tax on wealth above $1 billion. The United States has never had a federal wealth tax, and the proposal could face a court challenge on constitutional grounds if it were enacted.”

A WEALTH TAX ????????

What’s next? Confiscated the big jets and giant yachts of the 1% ???????????

WO are the rich and powerful. CRY with them (not).

And now here comes Bernie Sanders to add fuel to this unfair fire …

“Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who is also expected to run for president, followed Warren by releasing a proposal to dramatically increase the estate tax; his plan includes a 77 percent rate on the portion of estates worth more than $1 billion. Sanders’s plan would also move the threshold at which the estate tax kicks in from about $11 million to $3.5 million.”

Just when you think it could not possibly get worse THINK AGAIN …

“And in a sign that the proposals have only begun, Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) is working on a plan whose provisions include a financial transaction tax that could hit banks for each stock trade. Democrats have worked on similar proposals in the past, but Schatz aims to design his to impose much steeper costs on financial companies.”

This MADNESS has reached Hawaii. Barack Obama will be OUTRAGED!

Finally, The Idiot Hoard Schultz had enough and spoke up …

“Schultz has called a number of the ideas from Democrats “ridiculous,”

RIDICULOUS indeed. Thank the Devil for Howard Schultz.

And take a look at this nonsense BRUTALIZING success …

“The richest 1 percent of Americans now control as much wealth as the bottom 95 percent, according to research by Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman, two left-leaning economists at the University of California at Berkeley. Only five of 36 nations in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development have higher levels of income inequality than the United States, according to the OECD’s ranking.”

It should be ILLEGAL to publish GARBAGE like this that tries to make the Super Rich look like GREEDY animals. Disgraceful!

WO are the rich and powerful. CRY with them (not).

“Meanwhile, the number of billionaires globally rose from 470 in 2000 to 2,208 in 2018, according to Forbes. Democrats are seizing on the issue of income inequality as they fight to design the party’s economic agenda ahead of the 2020 elections.”

WHAT? Now it is some kind of SIN to be a Billionaire? Even MORE Billionaires will mean even more crumbs for the rest of us!

Wake up!!!!

The rest of us just need to get better at using those CRUMBS. That’s all.

What more need I add. This Post article says enough ….

NOW GET THE MESSAGE AMERICA!

WO are the rich and powerful. CRY with them (not).
