Seattle Democrats Targeting Their Own

This is a portrayal of many of the policies of the Democratic Party. For example, they want to reduce violence, but then want to ban guns instead of allowing more people to have the right to defend themselves. They want jobs for all but then push to allow millions of illegal aliens to come into and remain in America, taking many jobs, plus they want to increase the number of foreign nationals allowed in on a work visa to take jobs that belong to American citizens. They are so adamant about infringing on the right of free speech for conservatives, but fail to realize what will happen when the same happens to them. They protest against the things that made America prosperous and strong, but fail to realize what would happen if those things are lost. They insist on teaching kids they are nothing more than a product of millions of years of evolution and survival of the strongest and fittest in a world where there is no God and then they wonder why so many youths are committing suicide, doing drugs and turning to gangs and violence.

Democrats today are the equivalent of socialists as many of their policies are very socialistic in nature and purpose and one of those policies is the redistribution of wealth to solve what they believe is wealth inequality. One of the basic tenets of socialism is to take away as much wealth from the wealthy as possible to make the vast majority of the population dependent upon the government. They take from those who worked hard and made a success of themselves and give it to those who are lazy and don’t care to make anything of themselves and somehow believe this is the right thing to do.

Seattle is run by socialist Democrats who have been passing ordinances to prove it. They passed an ordinance to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour and then wondered why so many businesses, especially restaurants, raised their prices, reduced the number of staff and/or reduced the hours of each worker, relocated outside the city or closed their doors for business. A year after the ordinance was passed it was found that the average person who was affected by the increased minimum wage actually taking home less pay than before.

They are sawing away at the branch they are sitting on.

They knew they couldn’t ban guns so they passed a gun and ammunition tax. Guess what? People in Seattle went outside the city to buy their guns and ammunition. After the first year, the realized a substantially lower amount of gun tax revenue than they counted on.

They are sawing away at the branch they are sitting on.

Then Seattle passed an ordinance to charge their own income tax on the wealthier people in the city. Any single person making $250,000 or more a year or a couple filing jointly making $500,000 or more a year would have to pay a city income tax equal to 2.2% of their net earnings. The city argued that this was done due to income inequality.

What the city Democrats fail to realize is that Democrats are now the wealthier class of Americans than Republicans and there are some very wealthy Democrats in the Seattle area.

In other words, they want to tax their own wealthy.

They are still sawing away at the branch they are sitting on.

The city’s tax on the wealthy was challenged in court and found to violate state law. Seattle officials plan on appealing the decision to the state Supreme Court.

They won’t be happy until that completely saw off the branch they are sitting on and then they’ll wonder what happened.

Food For Thought: How Americans Are Becoming ‘Idiots’… Literally

Get this:

“In April 2015, Amazon’s best-selling book in the United States was not the recipient of a Booker Prize, a Nobel Prize, or a Pulitzer Prize. It was not even a work of literature; it was an adult coloring book by Johanna Basford. In August 2015, the American Art Therapy Association publicly endorsed “the use of coloring books for pleasure and self-care.”

By no means is that just an isolated factoid. It is only the first example in an article last week for The American Conservative by Australian philosopher Reilly Smethurst, who goes on to describe a sobering collection of trends that make his subtitle more than just a description of an academic exercise: “The etymology of idiocy.” Read more

What Millennials Should Know About the Soviet Union

By Chelsea Follett

The admiration of young people for communist leaders is slightly down from last year, according to the annual report on U.S. attitudes toward socialism, which was released by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation. Joseph Stalin saw the greatest fall in popularity, from 12 percent of millennials reporting a favorable impression of him down to 6 percent. However, a horrifying 23 percent of Americans between ages 21 and 29 believe that Stalin was a “hero.” Also, 32 percent of millennials hold a favorable view of Karl Marx, slightly down from 34 percent last year.

This drop in popularity is comforting, but only slightly. Chances are you have friends who still idealize socialism, communism, and the men who enforced these ideologies with an iron hand. But what they probably don’t realize is the awful truth about these utopian visions of a better world. Let’s quickly walk through some of the history they ought to consider. Read more

Democrats turning on Bill Clinton is strictly self preservation, not morality

Why the Democrats Really Turned on Bill Clinton

It’s not about his victims, it’s about money and power.

by Daniel Greenfield
November 16, 2017

In the winter of ’56, Khrushchev told the 20th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union that Stalin may not have been a very nice guy. In the fall of ’17, the media began to concede that maybe Bill Clinton did abuse a whole bunch of women. And maybe those women weren’t really part of a vast right-wing conspiracy to make a bloated piggish progressive hero seem like he might not be a very nice guy.

Why are Democrats turning on the Clintons? Same reason Khrushchev turned on Stalin. They’re purging the Clintons for the same reasons that they defended them. They’re calling out Bill Clinton for his sexual assaults for the same reasons that they covered them up. It’s about power and money.

The Democrats smeared Bill Clinton’s accusers then. Now they’ll exploit them to throw the Clintons out.

The #MeToo campaign provided an opening. But if you really want to understand why the left is disavowing Bill Clinton, ignore the hashtags and look at the bigger picture. Read more

The diminished collective Leftist IQ

The abyss of insanity has increasingly been welcoming evermore denizens into its miasma. Social Justice Warriors have gone from the questionable to unrestrained lunacy.

Eventually, they hope to have a “perfect world” where all citizens subscribe to their Orwellian group think.  Perhaps they will design Borg like cubes where the hive mind is connected to each machine like human; thus denying individuality.

Excerpts from the three following post are sadly but a drop in the bucket of the diminished collective IQ of the subscribers to the viewpoints expressed.

Swamp Monster: Robert Mueller’s corruption on steroids

Robert Mueller grand jury

Swamp Monster: Robert Mueller’s FBI Purposefully Kept Congress In The Dark About Russia’s Massive And Illegal Involvement With American Uranium Companies

Florida Republican Representative Matt Gaetz introduced a resolution Friday that called for former FBI Director Robert Mueller to step down as special counsel for the “Russia investigation” due to the fact that he was directly involved with covering up Russia’s “significant and illegal” involvement with American uranium companies.

That’s right, the man whose supposed job is to find out whether or not the Trump campaign colluded with Russia was actually the head of the FBI when they covered up the fact that the country was “corrupting” American uranium companies while also purposefully stopping a key witness from contacting Congress about said corruption.

In other words, Mueller is a deep state operative who is literally guilty of what he claims to be investigating President Trump for and should immediately resign as there is absolutely no chance whatsoever that his investigation is or will be unbiased. (The man is close personal friends with James Comey for crying out loud!)

A statement by Gaetz was included in the introduction of the resolution and noted that new evidence (the very same evidence that outlets such as MSNBC have implied was criminal to even talk about) has emerged that proves that the Mueller run FBI withheld key information from Congress in what amounts to covering up for the Russians.

“Although federal agents possessed this information in 2010, the Department of Justice continued investigating this ‘matter’ for over four years. The FBI, led at the time by Robert Mueller, required the confidential witness to sign a non-disclosure agreement,” Gaetz declared.

“When the witness attempted to contact Congress and federal courts about the bribery and corruption he saw, he was threatened with legal action. By silencing him, Obama’s Justice Department and Mueller’s FBI knowingly kept Congress in the dark about Russia’s significant and illegal involvement with American uranium companies.”

“These deeply troubling events took place when Mr. Mueller was the Director of the FBI. As such, his impartiality is hopelessly compromised. He must step down immediately,” Gaetz continued.

As Breitbart noted, allegations against Mueller are not simply “right wing conspiracies” like the vast majority of the liberal media has tried to convince the American people but rather come from multiple in-depth investigative reports, including one from the mainstream news outlet The Hill.

Last month, The Hill brought to light new revelations on an FBI investigation into a Russian kickback and bribery scheme in the U.S. The outlet reported that the FBI began their investigation in 2009 and had gathered evidence of the widespread scheme.

The investigation, which centered around a Russian nuclear energy firm, was not revealed to members of Congress, even as the Obama administration approved a deal in 2010 that would allow that firm’s parent company to purchase one-fifth of the U.S.’s uranium assets.

Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sat on a nine-member committee reviewing the deal, and during its approval, Bill Clinton received a $500,000 speaking fee from Russian investors, met with Russian officials, and the Clinton Foundation received millions. Clinton aides deny any connection.

Keep in mind that Mueller has so far failed spectacularly in doing what he was supposedly hired to do – to charge anyone who may have colluded with the Russians in an attempt to alter the 2016 elections. This obvious deep state operative has instead laughably charged two Trump associates with crimes committed literally years before Trump even considered running for president. ‘

Clearly it is time for Robert Mueller to step down or be fired by the president. If neither of these two options happen, you can almost guarantee that Mueller is going to continue his literal crusade against the man who was rightfully elected president until he eventually charges someone close to Trump with a crime from years past and in turn gets them to lie about the the president.

This is the Mueller endgame and it will happen unless he is stopped.

America did not elect Robert Mueller to be our mailman, much less have more power than the president.

MSM still covering for Obama?

 While everybody has fixated on DNC interim Chairperson Donna Brazile’s revelation that Hillary Clinton rigged the system, there was a much bigger story.

Her criticism of Barack Obama went essentially unnoticed. And that is Barack Obama is the reason the DNC sold its soul to the Devil, Hillary Clinton.

As I quipped while co-hosting Fox and Friends, the Democrats allowed the black guy to bankrupt them. Some felt my comment didn’t need to include the idea that Obama is black as the reason for the Democrats’ financial woes.

Nonsense.

Since the Democrats invested heavily in Obama’s “blackness”, the quip was apropos. Remember when Obama’s fundraising was legendary?

ABC reported the figures:

He was not quite the first $1 billion president — but he was three quarters of the way there. In 21-plus months, Barack Obama raised roughly $750 million from donors, surpassing all of his White House opponents this year and also eclipsing the total amount of money raised by all of the presidential candidates combined in 2004. More than all presidential candidates in 2004 combined. That’s amazing.

And it gets better.

From Oct. 16 through Nov. 24, 20 days after he was elected president, the Obama campaign reported bringing in $110.7 million from more than a million contributors. In that time period, Obama raised more money than the McCain campaign had available to spend during the general election, which officially began after the parties held their late summer conventions.

The Obama campaign finished the reporting period sitting on $30 million. It’s not clear how that money will be used. Plus, the Obama campaign advises it expects its total amount of money to increase when cash from the Obama Victory Fund comes in. The campaign reports more than $770 million in total receipts.

Now compare Obama’s fundraising to that of John McCain:

McCain’s fundraising for the 2008 cycle was not terrible. The Arizona senator raised a respectable $238 million from donors, in addition to the $84 million federal grant he received for participating in the public financing system.

Obama first said he would do as McCain had done. However, after finding out that Democrats really liked him as their “light-skinned Negro with no Negro dialect,” he opted out, and went for the big money.

OOPs there goes the Trump/Russian meme: Thousands attended protest organized by Russians on Facebook

Thousands of Americans attended a march last November organized by a Russian group that used social media to interfere in the 2016 election.

The demonstration in New York City, which took place a few days after the election, appears to be the largest and most successful known effort to date pulled off by Russian-linked groups intent on using social media platforms to influence American politics.

Sixteen thousand Facebook users said that they planned to attend a Trump protest on Nov. 12, 2016, organized by the Facebook page for BlackMattersUS, a Russian-linked group that sought to capitalize on racial tensions between black and white Americans. The event was shared with 61,000 users.

As many as 5,000 to 10,000 protesters actually convened at Manhattan’s Union Square. They then marched to Trump Tower, according to media reports at the time. The BlackMattersUS-organized rally took advantage of outrage among groups on the left following President Trump’s victory on Nov. 8 to galvanize support for its event. The group’s protest was the fourth consecutive anti-Trump rally in New York following election night, and one of many across the country.

“Join us in the streets! Stop Trump and his bigoted agenda!” reads the Facebook event page for the rally. “Divided is the reason we just fell. We must unite despite our differences to stop HATE from ruling the land.”

While the focus has been on Russian efforts ahead of the election, the BlackMatters rally days after Trump’s victory shows that Russian-linked social media influence efforts continued after the election.

The BlackMatters organizing group was connected to the Internet Research Agency, a Russian “troll farm” with ties to the Kremlin, according to a recent investigation by the Russian Magazine RBC. Facebook has identified the Internet Research Agency as the group responsible for purchasing 3,000 political ads on Facebook’s platform and operating 470 accounts that appear to have attempted to influence the perspectives of Americans during the 2016 elections.Facebook has since deleted those 470 accounts. BlackMatters’s account has been deleted as well, although Facebook has not officially confirmed the reason for BlackMatters being deleted from its site. Twitter also appears to have deleted an account associated with the group, possibly in its own purge of accounts linked to Russian actors.

“This is another example of why it’s important to disclose who is paying for promoted posts on Facebook,” said Katherine Haenschen, a professor who researches digital media at Virginia Tech.

The march is an example of the types of “organic content” — posts created by users, rather than as ads — that lawmakers are looking for as they investigate the extent of Russian political manipulation of social media platforms. But Haenschen believes Facebook’s paid features might have helped the event go viral.

“It also speaks to the challenges of organic reach. It’s unlikely that this audience is free or organic,” Haenschen said, referring to BlackMatters’s Facebook reach which included over 99,000 users who liked the page, according to an archived version of the page from May 16, 2017.

Facebook recently announced that it would introduce new transparency features, including making users who run election ads verify their identities with the company.

Haenschen says that this isn’t enough. She argues that this type of event that isn’t explicitly about elections could fall through the cracks, and says that Facebook should be aware of all users using the platform’s paid features.

For its part, Facebook says that it’s trying to make sure that such content stays off its platform.

“The foreign interference we saw is reprehensible and outrageous and opened a new battleground for our company, our industry and our society,” says Facebook General Counsel Colin Stretch in testimony he is set to deliver to the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday. “That foreign actors, hiding behind fake accounts, abused our platform and other internet services to try to sow division and discord — and to try to undermine our election process — is an assault on democracy, and it violates all of our values.”

Top Democrats in the House and Senate Intelligence committees, Sen. Mark Warner (Va.) and Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.), have both said that such organic posts tied to paid content will reveal the true scale of the Kremlin’s alleged social media campaign.

According to numbers in Facebook’s general counsel’s leaked congressional testimony, the number of people potentially touched by organic content eclipses the potential number reached by ads by hundreds of millions.

Lawmakers will have the chance to dig into this more when Facebook shares organic posts it has found to be created by Russian actors. Top lawyers from Facebook, Twitter and Google are expected to testify on Tuesday and Wednesday.

BlackMatters had organized other protests, but none revealed so far reached the level of support that the Nov. 12 protest did — in many cases, the organization’s events fizzled out and didn’t come to fruition. Others that actually did take place had a limited and isolated reach.

Other events that appear to be organized by the group tended to focus on rallies around race flash points, including the deaths of black men killed by law enforcement, The Hill found after reviewing 15 events by the organization. Others claimed to offer free legal education for immigrants.

One event was shared with 1,300 users on Facebook, of which 240 ultimately said that they would attend the “One Person One Vote One March,” on Dec. 3 in New York City, a protest against the electoral college. But it’s unclear if the event actually occurred and, if it did, how many people attended.

“The Electoral College is an outdated, undemocratic system that does not reflect our modern society, and it needs to be changed immediately,” the event description reads. “Every American should be guaranteed that their vote counts!”

Posts on BlackMatters’s website also focus on matters of racial justice, highlighting instances of police brutality and racial justice concerns in the U.S.

The group reportedly recruited Americans who were unaware of its links to Russian actors to help its mobilizing efforts and organize these events.

“I thought it was a knockoff of Black Lives Matter,” one organizer who unwittingly worked with the group told BuzzFeed, but changed his mind after looking at the group’s website, which he thought “looked legit.”

The group’s social media and digital messaging contrasts with earlier social media activity by Russian actors who may have tried to interfere in the election. Outlets like The Daily Beast have revealed social media activity for Russian-linked groups that attempted to mobilize pro-Trump groups on the right before the election.

For a change, a happy, uplifting post

Marine who saves twenty people in Las Vegas just got the gift of a lifetime.

By Thomas Dillingham

Semper Fidelis is the Marine Corps motto sometimes you will see it shortened to say Semper Fi!. It means, Always Faithful.

That mindset sprung into action during the Las Vegas massacre that left 58 dead and over 500 injured. US Military men and women were among the victims and heroes on that day.

One of those Heros is a retired US Marine. He saw the wounded and knew he had to act.

He told reporters that he knew there were usually keys inside work trucks. He entered a parking lot filled with work trucks. His hunch was right, the first door he opened had a set of keys. Read more
