Donald Trump, Ever the voice of caution, to GOP: Don’t touch Medicare or Social Security in debt ceiling fight. The ex-president has long viewed entitlement reform as a political loser. But his timing, now, is notable. One reason fiscal conservatives could support toothless commissions to take a gander at Social Security and Medicare is that their alternative plan, actually holding the global economy hostage in order to extract real cuts to seniors’ health care and income would be one of the dumbest political moves in history.

How the Federal Reserve protects the top one percent: Foremost priority of the Federal Reserve is to protect the interests of the ultra-wealthy. In short, as a first approximation, the current Fed policy of rapidly raising interest rates to fight inflation by throwing people out of work serves as a wealth protection device for the top one percent.

How Nevada Picks Millions From California’s Pocket: It’s not just the Getty family. The ultra-wealthy are hiding at least 10 percent of the world’s private wealth, taking advantage of specially designed tax laws in states like Nevada.

Lawmakers, fix trust law and close down the billionaire enabler states: Blame it on the enablers — the tax attorneys, accountants and wealth managers — who provide financial services to the world’s wealthiest families. These professionals claim they are just helping their clients obey the law. But as our research has found, this industry is actively involved in lobbying for changes in trust law and manipulating it to serve the narrow financial interests of their billionaire clients.

‘It’s not inflation anymore, it’s price gouging’: Walmart shopper buys same exact groceries 2 years later—and spends 50% more. “In the beginning of 2022, there was a lot of talk about inflation at the grocery store, so I went back and purchased all the same things and they cost me about 10 percent more,” she said.
That was more than a year ago. “This week, I went back again and purchased those same items,” she said. “Now, they cost $15 and 10 cents, which is about 50 percent more than the prices at the end of 2020.”

Alec Baldwin’s Case Comes Down to Two ‘Key’ Questions: State Attorney: Baldwin was hit with two counts of involuntary manslaughter on Thursday in connection with the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in October 2021 in New Mexico. Hutchins was killed on the set of the film, Rust, when a prop gun that Baldwin was using for a scene unexpectedly went off. Subsequent investigations found that the actor had been practicing movements with the prop, and that it had been loaded with a real bullet in breach of common safety protocols for film sets.

What is involuntary manslaughter? A law professor explains the charge facing Alec Baldwin for ‘Rust’ shooting death: Involuntary manslaughter occurs when a person unintentionally, but still unlawfully, kills another person. And a prosecutor will need to show the unlawful nature of either Baldwin’s or Gutierrez-Reed’s actions to get a conviction in this case.
