Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., routinely slams corporate executives and makes calls for wage hikes, a stance that comes across as hypocritical thanks to a new report, according to Greg Gutfeld. The self-described democratic socialist is reportedly taking heat from campaign staffers upset they are being paid “poverty wages” and not the $15 per hour that is a hallmark of the Sanders campaign, Gutfeld claimed Friday on “The Five.” “He is, just by existing, a hypocrite,” he said. “He’s a socialist millionaire with three homes. Wealth is good for him but not for others.” Sanders reportedly has a net worth of about $700,000, but has made more than $1 million annually in recent years. He and his wife Jane own a house in Burlington, Vt., he purchased a $575,000 lakefront property in the Green Mountain State in 2016, and the couple owns a 19th-century townhouse in the District of Columbia. On “The Five,” Gutfeld said it is important that Sanders, “appl[y] the damaging policies that he wants to do to Americans onto his staff.” “But why won’t he?” he asked. “Because he knows when you raise wages… you have to reduce the number of jobs because ‘the pie’ doesn’t grow. “The purpose of the minimum wage is it’s the first rung on the employment ladder. The problem with the left is… they see the first rung as the last rung because they’re not economically competent.” In recent weeks, Sanders has called for a $15 per hour minimum wage on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” and at campaign rallies in Rock Hill, S.C. and in Augusta, Ga. Adding to Gutfeld’s remarks, host Juan Williams claimed the wages Sanders staffers are making average out to $13 per hour. The staff is also unionized, Williams said.
Greg is definitely right.. Regardless of your personal politics, or party affiliation, Bernie is clearly a spectacular hypocrite. But, then again, so are most socialist leaders. They’ll want to impose their failed economic/political system on everyone, but themselves. Socialism keeps people in mediocrity, except those at the very top who are millionaires (some even billionaires) with multiple mansions and so on. And, that’s been true throughout history. Bernie is just the most glaring, brazen example in American politics. Kudos to Greg for calling out that self-righteous hypocrite on his bs. For more, click on the text above.
Did you hear? President Trump tweeted. The tweets are being called racist because Trump told critics of the United States to go back to their country. Now those critics are holding a press conference to respond. Trump’s comment sounds bad, if you leave the rest of it out. He actually said, “Go back to your countries, fix the problems there — and then come back, and show us how you did it!” How many racists say “leave,” and then say, “please come back and help us?” Probably zero. But Trump messes with the media’s reading comprehension, so they only digest half. See, Trump’s mistake is to assume everyone sees the whole picture. Fact is, the media and Democrats wish him ill and read his tweets with ill-intent. The rest of us are left to explain it all. It’s like doing stand-up while your friends are sitting at the tables explaining your jokes. That’s where I step in — I read the whole thing. My summary? After he said “leave,” he said, “please come back!” If anything, it’s a challenge. But why quibble with context? Still, the president could work harder on the details. Like the fact that only one of the Squad is from somewhere else. Also, maybe don’t tweet about the Democrats while they’re eating each other alive? So, yeah, I could’ve worded the tweets better than Trump. But, unlike his critics, at least I could read them.
Hahaha!! Greg, as usual, absolutely nails it here! The liberal media is SO gullible. I agree with Greg that Trump’s timing probably wasn’t that good. He should have waited til AFTER the 2020 election, and then if he wins re-election, THEN go after these idiots and say this sorta thing, and watch their heads explode. As it is, the Dems are in a circular firing squad eating each other for lunch, and by Trump doing this, he gave them something to unit against. But, nothing racist here, as Greg clearly shows. More fake news from the dominantly liberal mainstream media. Typical… Greg Gutfeld currently serves as host of FOX News Channel’s (FNC) The Greg Gutfeld Show (Saturdays 10-11PM/ET) and co-host of The Five (weekdays 5-6PM/ET). 🙂
Deporting the roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living across the United States saves American taxpayers hundreds of billions in public costs, analysis finds. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is expected to conduct a mass deportation effort next week, where at least 2,000 illegal aliens who have final orders for removal will be arrested, detained, and deported from the U.S. American taxpayers stand ready to benefit significantly from the deportation of thousands of illegal aliens, all of whom have been ordered deported and have refused to leave. The latest analysis from the Center for Immigration Studies Director of Research Steven Camarotta compared and contrasted the cost to American taxpayers of millions of illegal aliens living in the U.S. over a lifetime and the cost of deportation. Based on research from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, the cost of illegal aliens to American taxpayers over a lifetime is about $746.3 billion. Compare this to the cost of a single deportation, which is about $10,854 per illegal alien based on Fiscal Year 2016 totals. Overall, deporting every illegal alien in the country would amount to a cost savings of about $622 billion over the course of a lifetime. This indicates that deporting illegal aliens is six times less costly than what it costs American taxpayers to currently subsidize the millions of illegal aliens living in the U.S. “There’s a high cost of cheap labor,” Camarotta told Breitbart News. Last year, President Trump’s administration deported more than 256,000 illegal aliens from the U.S. Assuming that the cost of deportations has been largely unchanged since the Obama administration, this would mean that last year’s deportations, alone, cost about $2.8 billion. Compared to the annual $116 billion that the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) estimates illegal immigration costs taxpayers, deportations conducted last year were more than 40 times less costly. The latest Harvard/Harris Poll finds that a majority of Americans support Trump’s plan to mass deport illegal aliens following inaction from Congress. This includes support from more than 8-in-10 Republican voters and more than 5-in-10 swing voters. As Breitbart News has chronicled, there are about 1.7 million illegal aliens from Central America and Mexico, alone, living in the U.S. despite already being ordered deported or having pending deportation orders. The latest federal data concludes there are more than 925,000 illegal aliens, in total, with final deportation orders who have continued living freely in the U.S. About 20 percent of these illegal aliens have at least one criminal conviction and almost all are not in federal custody. Roughly 60 percent of these illegal aliens come from Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.
As we’ve been saying from day 1 here at The Daily Buzz.. We much closer to, if not more than, 22 MILLION illegal aliens here in America. That’s an insane number!! So, we need to be deporting these illegal aliens by the hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions. The current roundup of the low-hanging fruit (those who are convicted criminal aliens with final deportation orders from an immigration judge) is the first step. But, we need to keep that momentum going. As this article clearly points out, and we’ve been saying for years, the cost of deportation is far less than allowing these illegals to remain. Kudos to Steven Camarotta for putting this outstanding study together. Facts matter…even if they’re uncomfortable and inconvenient for the open-boarders crowd of Democrat politicians, and their cheering section in the dominantly liberal mainstream media.
