The “Fight for 15” movement has been staging protests for the last few years, insisting that fast food workers get a minimum wage of $15 dollars. They don’t care about the economic reality of their demands, they just want what they want. They also refuse to understand that being a fast food cashier is a starter job, not a career.
Many people warned them that their demand would have a negative impact on these jobs, as business owners would look for ways to work around them. That time has arrived.
Former McDonald’s CEO Ed Rensi writes at Forbes:
Over the past year and a half President-Elect Donald Trump has managed to shine a bright white spotlight on the mainstream media and exposed them as the number one source of manufactured and “fake” news across the world. He has done so by exposing their extreme biases, then using those same biases to garner free media and spread his message further than any campaign could through advertising alone.
This is a pattern seen through the primary campaign, into the general election campaign and one that Trump is continuing to utilize presently, and the MSM, having learned nothing, is still taking the rope Trump continues to hand them and hanging themselves with it.
In March 2016, before the primaries had even concluded, it was reported that Trump had received more “free media” than all of the other Republican candidates combined, as well as garnering more than both Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders combined.

Long before US President-elect Donald Trump even began his presidential campaign, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) was already crumbling along with the rest of America’s so-called “pivot to Asia” policy.
In late 2011, then US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would begin promoting what was called “America’s Pacific Century.” A US State Department archive containing Secretary Clinton’s remarks on the subject would reveal the “pivot to Asia” being promoted as (our emphasis):
…a need for a more dynamic and durable transpacific system, a more mature security and economic architecture that will promote security, prosperity, and universal values, resolve differences among nations, foster trust and accountability, and encourage effective cooperation on the scale that today’s challenges demand.
It was the one moment that convinced Hitler suicide was better than surrendering.
On the morning of April 29, 1945, the bodies of Italian dictator Benito Mussolini and his mistress were dumped like garbage into Milan’s Piazzale Loreto.
A large mob of Italians quickly gathered. They pelted the former leader’s corpse with vegetables. They spat on it. They urinated on it. Some even emptied their pistols into his lifeless body.
The Trump shock produced some unexpected market reactions, partly explained by investors buying into a risk-on argument,equities over bonds and buying dollars by selling other currencies and gold.
This is because President-elect Trump has stated he will implement infrastructure investment and tax-cut policies. If he pursues this plan, it will lead to larger fiscal deficits, and higher interest rates. The global aspect of the markets recalibration focuses on the strains between the dollar on one side, and the euro and the yen on the other, both still mired in negative interest rates. The capital flows obviously favour the dollar, and are putting the Eurocurrency markets under considerable strain.
Merkel’s Federal Cabinet has decided on new plans to supply the population in disasters, reports the Reuters news agency. The draft law adopted on Wednesday according to participant data provides inter alia new powers of the authorities. According to this, farms or other foodstuffs can be confiscated in order to ensure the nutrition of the population. The emergency plans are to take effect if a large number of Germans can no longer cover the free market with food. Examples of catastrophes are martial conflicts, a large-area power failure, a pandemic or a stop with large-area radioactive radiation.
Of their many duties, the police are there to enforce the law – not to interpret the law with regards to a judgement of you and the circumstance you may be in.
Depending on the circumstances, you may be arrested, even if you are innocent. But here’s the thing… when a LEO reads you your Miranda rights, take them seriously. Tell them that you’re taking ‘the fifth’ (the 5th Amendment to the Constitution) to avoid self-incrimination and you want an attorney, and then keep quiet until you have an attorney – even if you’re innocent!
The ‘Miranda warning’ wording varies, but here it is:
“You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have a right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you.”
