How’s that progressivism
working out for you, Jeff Bezos?

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 5/16/2018 9:16:26 AM

Is Jeff Bezos having second thoughts about his political ideology and that of his newspaper? The founder of Amazon and owner of the Washington Post -- and the richest man in the world at the current Amazon stock price – is being targeted by leftists because he has been so successful. Not for any alleged misbehavior, but simply because he and his company Amazon (not the WaPo) have so much money. Yesterday, Bernie Sanders attacked him by name (snip) Meanwhile, the day before Sanders gave his speech, the Seattle City Council unanimously passed a new tax on large employers, requiring

Jeff just got a very painful reminder (and expensive. Bet his stockholders will expect an explaination) that ´You didn´t build that´. Only gobernment can run and build successful projects and companies.

Jeff Bezos is learning there is no honor among leftist thieves. The left wants him to beat himself in public, beg forgiveness, and turn over all his wealth. All will be forgiven until the next installment is due.

If Jeff Bezos really wants to help people, don´t blindly give money to the left. There are people out there that really need help. They are dying from preventable disease and starvation. The left doesn´t help anyone.

Twitter culls fake followers,
Democrats hardest hit
American Thinker, by Monica Showalter    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 7/14/2018 8:45:27     Post Reply
Twitter announced it would be culling the platform´s fake followers. It makes good business sense to do this, because fake followers distort the influence ratings for advertisers, making accounts full of fakes a money-losing proposition for advertisers (who are Twitter´s real, paying customers). If someone has fake followers, they look more influential than they really are. Well, guess what: There is an extraordinarily high number of Democrats, the kind who draw lots of media hype, with puffed up ´it´ status, loaded with fake followers. I went and checked with this site called TwitterAudit here. Some of these accounts, as both Twitter

Anyone who has ever been to a recycling plant is invariably surprised at how dirty and nasty America’s favorite green activity really is. Trucks dump the material on a long conveyor belt, where a few dozen people pick through by hand what is supposed to be recyclable material, but more and more often is just plain old dirty trash. The recyclables used to be worth something more than bragging rights about liberal moral superiority. Plastic bottles, newspapers, and cardboard, were just a few of the favorites you could ship to China by the ton and make a few bucks along the

Strzok’s claim of no bias
so ridiculous that even CNN’s
political director calls BS
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article

Only a fool or a Democrat (the two groups considerably overlap in the United States) would believe Peter Strzok’s claim under oath that it was only the appearance of bias, not actual bias, that was the problem with his texts to his inamorata Lisa Page. Yet, the Democrats in the joint committee hearing were eager to hitch their wagon to his fate. One of them, Rep Steve Cohen of Memphis, offended many people with his claim that Strzok deserved a “Purple Heart,” oblivious to the genuine grievous physical injuries that have been honored with this medal that he trivialized.

House Dems outraged as Ryan and McCarthy
call their bluff on ‘abolish ICE’ bill
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 7/13/2018 8:43:24     Post Reply
All but admitting that the bill they introduced yesterday to abolish ICE was a political stunt, three House Democrats are feigning outrage (the default option for Dems ever since Trump won the presidency) that it will be promptly brought to a vote. They actually announced that they will note “no” on their own bill. (snip) Normally, members of a minority party publicly fume when their bills are not brought to a vote by the leadership of the majority. This is the standard operating procedure. But Kevin McCarthy and Paul Ryan – perhaps inspired by the way President Trump does things

Gunning for Judge Kavanaugh

It’s not just the wrongly decided Roe V. Wade decision that liberals fear is in jeopardy with the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. They also fear their crusade against “semi-automatic” weapons may be exposed as the semantic, visual, and judicial fraud that it is: "If you care about common sense gun violence protection, Judge Kavanaugh is your worst nightmare.

Her mind wandering and her words not coming out right, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, 78, is sounding more addled than ever, unable to express any clear line of thought. Which is consequential if you are a Democrat (snip) Asked a question about her leadership and the pressure from Democrats for her step down, Pelosi replied: I think some of it is a little bit on the sexist side – although I wouldn’t normally say that. Except it’s like, really? Has anyone asked whatshisname, the one who’s the head of Senate?

Did Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and
Bernie Sanders Save America?

Posted By: magnante- 7/9/2018 8:14:37     Post Reply
The citizenry of a nation that has experienced unprecedented peace, prosperity and global or regional hegemony over four or more generations are often lulled to sleep believing there will never be an end to their good fortune. Inevitably these countries and empires have floundered and decayed as they gradually and unwittingly descended into societal, political and economic chaos (snip) Fortunately for America, the conjoined hubris of the Democratic Party hierarchy, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton combined with the socialist absolutism of Bernie Sanders, opened the door for the left to unabashedly come out of the closet during the 2016 campaign.

Who was behind Alexandria Ocasio

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 7/8/2018 9:14:05     Post Reply
Somebody with deep expertise on image creation got ahold of the latest darling of the left and glammed her up for her current role as the standard bearer for the socialist wing of the Democrats, the Great Hispanic Hope to lead the "browning of Amerca" toward a radical future. Sometime between 2011 and 2018, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez was transformed from an earnest and nerdy wannabe entrepreneur into a glamorous radical crusader for socialism, the delusion-of-the-moment that has captured the imagination of the malcontent demographic slice of America. Ponder for a moment the difference between this close-up from her

Virtue-signaling Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel

Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel is up for re-election next year, and apparently is very worried about his chances in a city where poverty and ethnicity matters a lot. (snip) I Father Michael Pfleger, the radical Catholic priest, intends to lead an “anti-violence” protest today, shutting down the Dan Ryan Expressway, the major freeway leading from the Chicago Loop to the city’s southside. Mayor Rahm yesterday came out in support of the expressway-blocking demonstrations. The only problem is that by Illinois state law, it is the State Police that exercise jurisdiction over the expressways. And the Illinois State Police, like the

Here´s Why Hillary Is

That´s right: Hillary Clinton is running for president again in 2020. She has actually ramped up her campaign since her defeat in 2016! From her Twitter feed to university speeches to appearances abroad – from Ireland to Australia to India – the "I´m with her" campaign continues. (snip) The Clintons, because of their money, fixers, connections, and long held positions of power, are still widely feared in the Democratic Party. Few, if any, Democrats will risk criticizing Hillary Clinton, knowing they may appear in Trump campaign ads. Such contrariness is hazardous to a Democrat´s career and quite possibly to his

The Chicago Model: Population Replacement

Speaking at the University of Missouri in Columbia during a 2008 speech, then-Senator Obama said, "We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America." Many believe that this fundamental transformation was pursued for the eight years Obama was in office. Few would say that at the time that a fundamental transformation was already going on in Chicago. For more than fifty years, the Chicago Democrats were using population removal to get votes and guarantee the outcome of elections. Just as an iron curtain once fell across Europe, a red curtain had already fallen across Chicago´s 50 wards. What

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen. When deciding which royals to include in the meeting, senior courtiers shared concerns about

FBI Agent Peter Strzok, who worked on the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the investigation of possible ties between Russia and the Trump campaign testified under oath in a congressional hearing on Thursday that FBI agents can engage in some types of adultery. Strzok was asked “what action” he would take if he found out one of his subordinates was conducting an “extramarital affair.” “It depends,” said Strzok. “If it was against the FBI’s regulation in terms of if it was somebody in their chain of command, above or below them, which is inappropriate or not allowed by regulation, I would

Americans are encouraged to embrace diversity and be culturally sensitive to those who have flouted our laws and invaded our nation. Meanwhile, illegal aliens arriving in America have no such requirement. Instead, trespassing tribes relocate, and when they do, rather than assimilate, they transfer habits and activities indigenous to the countries from whence they migrated. Thus, Americans suffer from illnesses that are easily traceable to third-world bathroom habits (TWBH) and lack of hygiene in the developing world. It´s not news that illegals work in restaurants as food-handlers. These restaurant workers migrate from

Watching FBI agent Peter Strzok battle with Congress, my initial reaction was pure anger. His repeated, arrogant insistence that he had done nothing wrong despite tons of evidence to the contrary convinced me he deserved immediate firing — if not the firing squad. Gradually, though, anger gave way to amazement as Strzok grew increasingly combative and condescending. Given his predicament, the sneering and smirking were stupid, and yet he persisted. Who is this jerk, I wondered, and how in the hell did he get to be a big shot at the FBI? And why are taxpayers still paying for the privilege of

The left-wing terrorist organization that calls itself Antifa is “freaking out” over a proposed law that would enhance penalties for anyone who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person” while wearing a disguise or mask. Throughout our country, and for a number of years now — and primarily because the establishment media fantasizes about, promotes, enflames and approves of the violence committed against the right (naturally, HuffPo opposes the unmasking law) — Antifa has been allowed to run rampant, committing countless acts of violence against everyday, peaceful supporters of President Donald Trump.

A 13-year-old girl in Alabama was beheaded because she saw her Sinaloa Cartel-associated granny stabbed to death by drug traffickers, authorities have said. Mariah Lopez, 13, and her grandmother Oralia Mendoza, 49, were killed on June 4 in Moon Cemetery outside of Huntsville, Alabama, prosecutors revealed in court on Thursday. The new details in the case came in a hearing for 26-year-old Yoni Aguilar, who along with 34-year-old Israel Palomino is charged with two counts each of capital murder in the slayings. At the hearing, investigators testified that the grandmother Mendoza had ties to the Sinaloa Cartel,
