Posted in: Democrat Warren accuses rival Bloomberg of trying to buy U.S. presidential election See in context

Warren needn't worry:

Bloomberg News won’t do investigative reporting on any democratic presidential candidates now that the news organization’s multibillionaire owner, Michael Bloomberg, has jumped into the 2020 race.

 “We will continue our tradition of not investigating Mike (and his family and foundation) and we will extend the same policy to his rivals in the Democratic primaries,” [Editor-in-chief] John Micklethwait wrote in a memo to newsroom staffers on Sunday after Mr. Bloomberg announced his intention to run.

And when an African American South Bend council member endorses someone other than Mayor Pete, you know he isn't a good choice either.

Posted in: Bloomberg launches Democratic presidential bid See in context

Bloomberg's just another leftist. Different lipstick, but same old pig underneath ... He figures the current democrat field is a flaming clown car of failed mayors and senators ... How could he do worse?

I don't know why people think he's is a "moderate". Any one who advocates gun and sugar bans is NOT a moderate. And apologizing for stop and frisk alienated moderate GOPs and Independents, it didn't earn him one minority vote. Not a good start.

As far as supposed "executive business experience" that still doesn't change his leftist platform ... Though it will be interesting seeing Sanders and Warren go at it with Bloomberg, they abhor Billionaires ...

. . . families in 10 cities that have recently been ordered deported by an immigration court but have not yet left the country.

So these are people who have had their day in court, have had their Asylum hearing and have refused to leave voluntarily. If laws are not enforced, USA will rapidly become similar to the very same countries from which the migrants are fleeing from.

The Chinese leadership in Beijing have a real problem on their hands in HK. The protesters are giving the people of China hope and putting Xi in a precarious position. China will not put up with such dissent on its territory for much longer and I fear that this will end suddenly and violently for the protestors.

Posted in: Fire ravages Notre Dame cathedral in Paris; spire collapses See in context

It is not just a Catholic loss, it a civilizational loss. It is one of the most visited tourist sites in the world. It represents a distinct period in history: religious, architectural, philosophical, and cultural. Hundreds of years before explorers set out to discover the Americas, the Notre Dame Cathedral stood. Hundreds of years to create, a few hours to destroy.

Posted in: Facebook chief wants 'more active' gov't role regulating internet See in context

"Regulating the internet" is a euphemism for buying off Congress to produce legislation to limit entry and competition favoring the existing internet behemoth like Facebook, Twitter, and Amazon, who actually want to control speech. No different than a Carnegie or Rockefeller in their day.

Posted in: Republicans intensify counterattack after Mueller probe See in context

Mueller conducted a one sided investigation. He blamed Russians for interference but failed to explain the origins of this conspiracy. He failed to investigate the DNC, Hillary, Steele, Podesta and anyone involved with the dossier and the FISA application. These people created the crime and then blamed Trump and his campaign, however none of these people have been charged.

There has to be accountability for this attempt to subvert the law and conspire to remove a president legally elected by the people. This appears to be a failed coup-d'-etat by the supposed defenders of our Republic.

Posted in: Apple's news subscription service a mixed bag for publishers See in context

The Journal, famous for its business and industry coverage and commanding nearly $40 a month, will feature "specially curated" general-interest news available for Apple customers.

Many subscribers of the WSJ are upset over this $10 offering, but we've been assured that Apple will only make WSJ articles available for 3 days after publication. After that, they disappear behind the paywall. If that's not the case there will be a mass exodus. Also as far as I'm aware the New York Times already offers 10 articles per month for free to non subscribers anyway.

Posted in: Hate attack hoax charges dropped against actor Jussie Smollett See in context

$100,000 payoff gets a pretty, gay, black, man, freedom for lying to police. Good to know.

Wonder which election campaign will be getting the next checks?

So much for justice being blind.

The article is misleading. In the US you only need 10% of the bond in cash. So he forfeited only $10,000 not $100,000.

Posted in: Democrats demand full Mueller report; Trump says OK with him See in context

The democrat’s conundrum is that if they give up trying to investigate Trump they need to fill the void with tangible ideas that improve the lot of the average working citizen besides juvenile initiatives like the Green Deal, dead-on-arrival Medicare for All and making disgusting anti-Semitic remarks.

This is why Nancy Pelosi downplayed the whole impeachment thing. 

She saw it. 

Diversion to the dem Congressional effort on trying to find obstruction.

Nothing like an investigation looking for a crime.

Once the Mueller report has been redacted and released, AG Barr will announce that he is appointing a new special prosecutor to investigate the FBI and DOJ's actions before and after the 2016 elections, at the behest of Senator Graham.

Posted in: Actor Smollett staged 'hate crime' hoax to advance career: Chicago police See in context

Between the Covington Catholic school video and now Smollett, the media has done Trump a favor: they have shown how truly irresponsible, and biased they have become while disregarding any journalistic standards. Yes, Virginia, fake news exists. 

Secondly, all Smollett is being charged with is filing a false police report. He needs to be charged with a hate crime.

Posted in: 'Empire' actor Jussie Smollett charged with faking racist attack See in context

The big story from this incident has nothing to do with Smollett: It is about the continuing decline in the professionalism, accuracy, and objectivity of the media. They are biased, they are bold about it, and they couldn't care less that we know it. A nation needs a competent, independent, and objective media: We no longer have it, and it's a very bad sign for America.

Sanders looks towards the Scandinavian ideas.

They seem to do okay. They outstrip pretty much everyone on the metrics that matter.

Not much crumbling.

They also do not have 10 to 12 million people living there illegally.

While Japan worries about 106 foreigners disappearing off cruise ships.

Step aside all you simulated Socialists, here comes the real one.

80 year old Bernie Sanders, announcing he will make yet another attempt at destroying the strongest, most innovative economy the world has ever known.

How will the various Socialists differentiate from each other with all of the "free" stuff they are offering? Each of the candidates should have a mandatory trip to Venezuela to see a true worker's paradise and to have a full understanding of what they are trying to "give" to each of us.

My suggestion, have the Justice Department file suit against California requesting the $3.5 billion they were given by the Obama Administration for their high speed rail from LA to San Francisco that was recently cancelled. Now that is a chase that will stand up in court.

Posted in: Democrat Warren announces challenge to Trump in 2020 See in context

Like all democrats, she favors higher taxes, like many others, she supports Bernie’s “Medicare for all” and she’d “abolish” and replace Immigration and Customs Enforcement with “something that reflects our morality,” which of course, she doesn’t specify.

 The Warren difference is that she also wants fundamental changes to America’s free-market system. She has proposed the Accountable Capitalism Act, which would require corporations with $1 billion in revenue to get a new charter from the federal government. Most corporations are state-chartered now.

 I don't use the term lightly, but Warren is preaching straight-up Communism, almost chapter and verse from Marx's Manifesto.

The idea of government "chartering" private corporations is right out of 19th Century Germany, and the bright dividing line between Socialism -- which posits use of corporate revenue "directed to the common good," vs. Communism which posits "control of production" and installing government overseers on corporate Boards of Directors.

This is entirely out in the open and unambiguous: She thinks government should run the private economy and direct individual corporate decision-making: That's not "socialism." Not even close.

That's Communism, and we're hair-splitting if we're trying to define the difference between Warren's idea of what "a Republic is," vs. The People's Republic of China.
