When You’ve Lost Jeff Bezos… replies
Posted by Dreadnought 5/13/2022 11:53:18 PM Post Reply
Tonight Joe Biden tweeted a particularly stupid idea: let’s fight inflation by raising corporate income taxes! It is extraordinary to see how out of ammunition the floundering Biden administration is, after less than a year and a half. There is nothing newsworthy about Joe Biden saying something dumb, but Jeff Bezos’s Twitter response deserves notice: The Democrats are the party of oligarchy, and tech oligarchs are at the top of the food chain. If even people like Jeff Bezos are willing to step out of line, the Democrats may be in worse trouble than we knew.
Midterms 2022: Expect the Worst replies
Posted by Dreadnought 5/13/2022 11:48:49 PM Post Reply
It is currently a popular meme that the Republicans are poised for a Congressional sweep in the 2022 midterm elections, perhaps flipping as many as 40 — some say 60 — seats and regaining control of both houses. After all, the Democrats have performed so poorly across the board, whether in foreign policy, the economic realm, the maelstrom at the southern border, and in the overall domestic havoc they have wrought, as to constitute a disaster not seen in many decades, if not in living memory. Is this about to change? Victor Davis Hanson is not so sure. “The traditional bedrocks of the American system,” he writes, “a stable economy, energy independence,

Fred Ward, who starred in films including “Henry and June,” “Tremors,” “The Right Stuff” and “The Player,” died May 8, his publicist confirmed to Variety. He was 79. Among his other prominent roles were parts in “Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins,” “Miami Blues” and “Short Cuts.” There was a certain retro quality to the actor’s persona that made Ward seem more akin to Humphrey Bogart or John Garfield (although not quite with those actors’ level of charisma) than to his contemporaries, and it did not seem at all affected. He appeared to be the sort of fellow who hailed from the South Side of Chicago or Hell’s Kitchen,

A Wisconsin mom shared her horror after her 13 year-old son was accused of sexual harassment for refusing to refer to a non-binary schoolmate with 'they/them' pronouns. Rosemary Rabidoux hit out after her son Bradon became one of three eighth grade schoolboys at Kiel Middle School subjected to an ongoing probe. It was triggered after they chose not to use the gender neutral pronoun for their unidentified classmate, who they instead referred to using 'she' and her'. Things appear to have escalated quickly with the school district now filing a Title IX complaint against the students, accusing them of sexual harassment for using the 'incorrect' pronouns.

The man who was all too eager to protect school board officials from “terrorist” parents by ordering the FBI to investigate them had to be dragged kicking and screaming to do his job and send U.S. Marshals to protect the private homes of Supreme Court justices. Attorney General Merrick Garland “directed the U.S. Marshals Service to help ensure the Justices’ safety by providing additional support to the Marshal of the Supreme Court and Supreme Court Police,” the DOJ said.

Food Shortages in America? Biden Blames
a War America Isn't Fighting

Did you ever believe that a day would come when an American president would be asking farmers to boost production due to food shortages? In America. Food shortages. Somehow, there’s a disconnect between those words. The mind rejects them because it’s a preposterous idea that a nation that grows and produces enough food to feed 10% of the planet is actually experiencing food shortages. It’s the war, don’t you know, claims Biden. The president, who fancies himself a wartime leader, said to a group of farmers in Kankakee, Ill., “Right now, America is fighting on two fronts. At home, it’s inflation and rising prices.

George P. Bush may be floundering in his race for Texas attorney general due to the political toxicity of his family name, according to all available data. In decades past, there were few political dynasties in Texas as unstoppable as the Bush family name with a solid legacy stretching all the way back to the 1960s. In the age of Trump, the name’s staying power appears to have waned, and George P. Bush may be the latest casualty. Up against incumbent Ken Paxton, Bush cannot seem to find a rhythm with voters who either view him as an untrustworthy RINO or an opportunist spouting Trumpian slogans to win MAGA support.

Although Social Security benefits have climbed by 64% since 2000 thanks to cost-of-living adjustments, typical senior expenses through March 2022 have actually grown by more than double that rate

The Arizona Supreme Court has rejected an attempt by the radical left to remove three conservative legislators from the 2022 ballot for attending the protest at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. This is a losing issue for the Democrats, so they’re weaponizing the courts to suppress conservative speech all across the country.The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene also needed to fight a lawsuit just to stay on the ballot.
Erdogan says Turkey not supportive of
Finland, Sweden joining NATO

ANKARA - President Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday it was not possible for NATO-member Turkey to support plans by Sweden and Finland to join the pact, saying the Nordic countries were "home to many terrorist organisations". Though Turkey has officially supported enlargement since it joined NATO 70 years ago, its opposition could pose a problem for Sweden and Finland given new members need unanimous agreement. Finland's plan to apply for NATO membership, announced Thursday, and the expectation that Sweden will follow, would bring about the expansion of the Western military alliance that Russian President Vladimir Putin aimed to prevent by launching

Stephen King took to Twitter on Thursday to defend a woman’s right to kill her baby. The author tweeted: [Tweet] “If” men could have babies? Excuse me, I was under the impression that men could indeed have babies. In fact, before the leaked draft of the Supreme Court Roe opinion, I was told that we must refer to them as “pregnant people” and “birthing parents.” But then, suddenly, when the Left discovered it was in danger of losing its sacred right to slaughter innocents, we started to hear again that it’s really only women who have babies. It’s all so confusing, isn’t it? King must have missed the memo that
Detention of WNBA star Brittney Griner
in Moscow extended by one month

The lawyer for WNBA star Brittney Griner said Friday her pre-trial detention in Russia has been extended by one month. Griner's lawyer Alexander Boikov told The Associated Press he believed the relatively short extension of the detention indicated the case would come to trial soon. Griner, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, was detained at the Moscow airport after vape cartridges containing oil derived from cannabis were allegedly found in her luggage, which could carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. The Biden administration says Griner, 31, is being wrongfully detained. The WNBA and U.S. officials have worked toward her release, without visible progress.

The players, management, and executives of the National Basketball Association care very deeply about social justice issues. Just ask them, and you’re sure to get an earful. Ask LeBron James about his thoughts on Black Lives Matter and he’s certain to go into a lengthy rant about his all-in support for the group and the movement. Ask league commissioner Adam Silver about his commitment to LGBTQ causes, and you’ll likely hear a lengthy lecture about his commitment including that time he pulled the league’s All-Star game out of Charlotte to protest North Carolina’s reasonable bathroom bill. The NBA even has a strong opinion on the 2nd Amendment,

When you go woke, you run the risk of going broke, and apparently, Netflix is pulling the ripcord before the streaming giant good and fully faceplants. Following a financial report that saw its stock price plummet 37 percent in late April, Netflix is now moving to adjust its culture and reengage its frustrated audience. A new “culture memo” dealing with “artistic expression” has been sent out, and it’s clearly a shot at the woke staffers who have been sandbagging the company. Excerpts come via The Daily Wire. “If you’d find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you,”

Can you imagine living in mortal fear of a 90-year-old man who preaches peace and love? If so, you know what it is like to be a senior member of the Chinese Communist Party. On Wednesday, communist authorities in Hong Kong arrested Cardinal Joseph Zen on a phony “national security” charge. Zen’s immediate offense was his alleged involvement in a dissolved fund to defend those harmed by the ruthless crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. His real crime is his unwillingness to overlook Beijing’s broken promises about establishing democracy with universal suffrage in Hong Kong—a promise it made to get the former colony back from the gullible British.

Elon Musk's $44 billion deal to buy Twitter is "on hold" for the moment, the billionaire business tycoon said on Friday. "Twitter deal temporarily on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5% of users," Musk tweeted. The price of shares in the social media company dipped double digits in premarket trading after the Tesla and SpaceX CEO's tweet. In his tweet announcing the snag in the deal, Musk shared an news article from earlier this month about a Twitter disclosure

Commenter KK’s impassioned defense of Russia against the (to him) “blind hatred” of Poles got me thinking. I’ve been doing some reading lately regarding the path to perpetual war in Europe—after all, the current conflict in Ukraine can arguably be seen as simply the continuation of a civilizational crisis in the West that first took military form in the Napoleonic wars. Certainly the inevitable centrality of Russia to Western Europe’s future can be dated at least that far back. What is different about this dynamic since WW2 is the overwhelming presence of the United States in the equation. Just a short while ago I came across this interesting thread.
The Democrats’ War On Children replies

Democrats often like to preface policy debates with phrases like “it’s about the children,” as if such patronizing mantras could sanctify even the worst ideas. The sad truth, however, is that one look at what the Dems have done since 2020 shows their real concerns are anything but the children. From abortion to school shutdowns to runaway inflation to baby-food shortages, seemingly everything the Dems do these days has an adverse effect on children. After all, they control Congress and the White House. To take the most egregious example,

A few days ago, GOP Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene from Georgia, and Dan Crenshaw from Texas, were involved in a heated online exchange over providing U.S. aid to Ukraine Since Russia's incursion began, the U.S has supplied Ukraine with billions of dollars in aid. Back in March, the House and the Senate approved $13.6bn for ‘assistance’ to Ukraine. On Tuesday, the House approved $40 billion more in aid. At the beginning of the month, Biden had requested $33 billion but the House generously offered $7 billion more. The aid to Ukraine comes as the US, under Biden, is struggling on several fronts.

Just in the past few days, news outlet MSNBC hosted two separate women, both of whom addressed the hot-button topic of abortion. Although such a controversial and emotionally-charged subject ought to be approached with diplomacy and discretion, these women were visibly thrilled as they considered the murder of helpless babies. After what we’ve been through with American Democrats, it shouldn’t be surprising – yet it is. Laurie Kilmartin, a “comedian” known for her appearance on a popular television show, vocalized her fantasy about procreating with the SCOTUS leaker, and then happily killing the child if the leaker turned out to be a conservative.

Something is killing off large numbers of 25-to-54-year-olds in the United States, and the powers that be in government and the media are pretending it is not happening. There is no visible effort to study the alarming statistics gathered by actuaries for the life insurance industry, which keeps track of deaths because they directly impact their bottom line through calins from the insured. Aaron Kheriaty, MD spotted the alarming table below on page 23 of a report from the Society of Actuaries Research Institute (snip) Deaths among young-to-middle aged are double what they normally would be in the third quarter of 2021, the latest period for which data are available.

MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell wondered on her Thursday show that if the Supreme Court cares so little about precedent in Roe v. Wade, will it also overturn Brown v Board of Education. Because her guest was former Attorney General Eric Holder, nobody pointed out that Brown is the case conservatives cite to justify overturning longstanding precedents.Mitchell began by asking Holder about the leak of the draft opinion, “How unprecedented, first of all, is the leak? And the way they came down in terms of breaking president, precedent, ignoring stare decisis and deciding to completely overrule Roe v. Wade after 49 years.”

Former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman's inquiry into the 2020 presidential election has reportedly been halted amid several lawsuits over his investigation.While his investigation into the election is paused, Gableman's $11,000 monthly salary will be halved to $5,500, and he will receive a $2,500 monthly stipend to pay for rent, General Assembly Speaker Robin Vos announced Wednesday, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "Until we win those lawsuits, you know, we are pausing the investigation because it's not like we're going to keep looking into things we've already discovered," Vos, a Republican, said.

Is the White House lying even about their response to the baby formula shortage? Listen as White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claims Joe Biden has been working on the issue that she blames on the Abbott Company recall. She says that they’ve been working on the problem for months. Funny that. If they’ve been working on it for months, why hasn’t Biden hasn’t made any public comment on the effort? White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said it was a “top priority” on Wednesday. But then, when she was asked who was the point person on the issue at the White House, Jean-Pierre was unable to say. Some priority.
