A 3 PRONG PEACEFUL (AT LEAST AT FIRST) REVOLUTION IS BORN!
Pope Francis Warns Global Economy Is Near Collapse + END WARS
Pope Francis = Warns Economy is Built on money-worship and war
Pope Francis = Warns Economy is scarred by Massive inequality + 13+% youth unemployment
Pope Francis = Warns “We are excluding an entire generation to sustain a system that is not good. Our global economic system can’t take any more.”
Pope Francis = Denounced the influence of war and the military on the global economy
Pope Francis = Warns “We discard a whole generation to maintain an economic system that no longer endures, a system that to survive has to make war….That we make and sell arms.”
Pope Francis = Warns “the balance sheets of the idolatrous economies — the big world economies that sacrifice man at the feet of the idol of money — are obviously cleaned up.”
Pope Francis = Warns “Inequality is the root of social evil.”
Warren’s 2003 book, “The Two Income Trap” criticized Hillary Clinton for supporting a bankruptcy bill she said was structured to favor corporate interests. “As first lady, Mrs. Clinton had been persuaded that the bill was bad for families, and she was willing to fight for her beliefs. As New York’s newest senator, however, it seems that Hillary Clinton could not afford such a principled position . . . The bill was essentially the same, but Hillary Rodham Clinton was not.”
Bill Clinton allowed Rubin and Summers to work with the GOP to END the Depression Era protection that separated Basic Banking from Wall Street Casino Gambling called Glass-Steagle. Clinton also allowed Rubin and Summers with GOP HELP the Derivatives Scams still SCAMMING CITIES, COUNTIES, COUNTRIES and MIDDLE CLASSES around the World. These two HORRIBLE MOVES allowed by Clinton and GOP resulted in the MASSIVE SUB-PRIME HOUSING SCAMS and the 2008 BANKSTER CRASH with BAILOUTS TO TOO-BIG-TO-FAIL and PROSECUTE BANKSTERS AND SCAMMERS.
In addition Hillary was a strong supporter for the FAKED IRAQ WAR costing OUR Middle Class $6+ TRILLION in wealth Transfer to MULTINATIONAL $BILLIONAIRES for two useless WARS. The Bankruptcy law was a MASSIVE BANKSTER SCAM to HURT THE MIDDLE CLASS when they faced unemployment and/or Healthcare catastrophes.
“LOBBYISTS are people too.” — Hillary Clinton
Piketty Scientifically proves Pope Francis is 100% CORRECT!
Elizabeth Warren Distills Thomas Piketty’s book on Capital. “Trickle down does not work. Never Did!”
Elizabeth Warren Simplifies Thomas Piketty: ‘Trickle Down Doesn’t Work. Never Did’, = Senator Elizabeth Warren weighing in on America’s Number 1 selling book by Piketty = Piketty’s thesis in “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” that “trickle-down economics definitely do not work.”
— Senator Warren -“Can we say that part again? ‘Definitely do not work.’
“Not as in that’s somebody else’s opinion or this comes out of a long-held political opinion. The data don’t lie on this. He’s got good historical data, and boy, what it shows is trickle down doesn’t work. Never did, doesn’t work. Just so we’re all clear on the baseline. I just saved you 1,100 pages of reading.”
— Senator Warren -“Can we say that part again? Trickle down ‘Definitely does not work.’
“You read his book and you just wanna say, ‘Ugh.’ Because it says over and over — look, I’ll tell you the basic theme: The rich get richer.”
— Senator Warren
“Here’s the hopeful part in Piketty’s book: Piketty makes the point that although the data keep documenting this (TRICKLE DOWN FAILURE) happening, it’s not like an act of nature. It’s not like gravity and you can’t fix it. Piketty’s book makes the point that how much equality there is … is a matter of the (TAX) policies you choose to follow and that, for example, progressive taxation and investment in everyone’s education helps to level the playing field.”
— Senator Warren
“It is a time when we made those investments that built America’s great middle class and we made those decisions — not we in this room, but our parents, our grandparents, they made those decisions. They said, ‘You put a cop on the beat so nobody steals your pension, you do that on Wall Street.’ But they also said, ‘You tax progressively and then you make those investments.’ For those who made it big, God bless ’em, that’s great, but they’ve gotta pay a piece of that forward so the next kid has a chance to make it big and the kid after that and the kid after that. That’s what defines America.”
— Senator Warren – Piketty proposes a “steeply progressive wealth tax” + a “beefed up inheritance tax.”
PIKETTY’S #1 BEST SELLER GETS RAVE REVIEWS AND MUCH FEAR FROM THE ELITISTS!
Piketty = French economist ‘rock star’ is ‘freaking out’ the super rich!
The Wall Street Journal says Piketty = “Revives Marx.”
NYT on Piketty = Calls him a “Rock Star.”
MarketWatch says = Piketty is a “policy challenge.”
Salon calls Piketty = “The right’s new public enemy No. 1” who has “conservatives terrified.”
Time says Piketty’s best-selling book = “Freaking Out the Super Wealthy.”
Mediapart, a French newspaper, calls Piketty’s Book = “C’est un bulldozer.” “It is a bulldozer.”
Bloomberg calls Piketty’s Work “The Most Important Book Ever.” = “Is All Wrong.”
Piketty documents economic inequality and wealth concentration from 1700 forward to find social and economic patterns. = We have Returned to 1920s pre-Great Depression Inequality.
TOOBIN IN New Yorker = Warren defiantly at odds with some big names in her own party:
Warren’s 2 INCOME book describes her opposition to a bankruptcy law reform bill that was written to benefit the financial industry. = In “Two Income Trap” book she describes briefing Hillary Clinton, when she was first lady, about the bankruptcy bill backed by the financial industry. “It’s our job to stop that awful bill,” Warren quotes Clinton as saying. But several years later, when the bill came up for passage, Senator Clinton voted for it. “The bill was essentially the same but Hillary Rodham Clinton was not,” Warren wrote. As senator, “she could not afford such a principaled position…” When the bill finally passed, in 2005, then-Senator Joseph Biden was one of its biggest backers. “Senators like Joe Biden should not be allowed to sell out women in the morning and be heralded as their friend in the evening,” Warren said.
FACT = WARREN has party operatives and donors who have pegged their hopes on her, BUT she’s got some operational differences with party leaders.
