Lawsuit against ‘Crowds on Demand’ shines troubling light on growing ‘rent-a-mob’ tactics: ‘Contributes to air of unreality’

“Rent-a-mobs” are seen as a Democrat staple, with the term regularly applied to any number of ACORN-like community organizing groups on the left that can turn out foot soldiers on demand, but who knew there are actual companies that provide paid protesters?

Crowds on Demand, a Beverly Hills company that hires protesters, finds itself in the news because its being sued by a Czech investor who claims the company’s running an extortion campaign against him, The Sacramento Bee reported.

UCLA sociology professor Edward Walker wrote a book on astroturfing and said paid protests are becoming increasingly more common.

“There are hundreds of lobbying firms and public affairs firms that do this work, though not all in the same way,” Walker told the Bee.

Democrat party dominated by elites and leftist hatred

 

Pamela Geller – on October 22, 2018 
Great summation of the irrationality, hate and contempt of Americanism by the left.
He’s the average American in exaggerated form—blunt, simple, willing to fight, mistrustful of intellectuals.  

The Real Reason Haters (the Left) Hate Trump
By David Gelernter, Wall Street Journal, October 21, 2o18:
Every big U.S. election is interesting, but the coming midterms are fascinating for a reason most commentators forget to mention: The Democrats have no issues. The economy is booming and America’s international position is strong. In foreign affairs, the U.S. has remembered in the nick of time what Machiavelli advised princes five centuries ago: Don’t seek to be loved, seek to be feared.

The death of our culture

There are excerpts from several posts below which are very informative and well worth the read.

The death of Truth:
Epitaph for a Dying Culture
The Kavanaugh confirmation hearings and their endless sequelae have ended up as an epitaph for a spent culture for which its remedies are felt to be worse than its diseases. Think 338 B.C., A.D. 476, 1453, or 1939.

The coordinated effort to destroy Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court required the systematic refutation of the entire notion of Western jurisprudence by senators and much of the American legal establishment. And there was no hesitation in doing just that on the part of Senate Democrats, the #MeToo movement, and the press. And I write this at a moment in which conservatives and Republicans still control the majority of governorships, state legislatures, the U.S. Senate, the House of Representatives, the Supreme Court and the presidency—a reminder that culture so often is far more powerful than politics.

So, here we were to be left with a new legal and cultural standard in adjudicating future disagreements and disputes, an utterly anti-Western standard quite befitting for our new relativist age:

  • The veracity of accusations will hinge on the particular identity, emotions, and ideology of the accuser;
  • Evidence, or lack of it, will be tangential, given the supposed unimpeachable motives of the ideologically correct accuser;
  • The burden of proof and evidence will rest with the accused to disprove the preordained assumption of guilt;
  • Hearsay will be a valuable narrative and constitute legitimate evidence;
  • Truth is not universal, but individualized. Ford’s “truth” is as valid as the “Truth,” given that competing narratives are adjudicated only by access to power. Ford is a victim, therefore her truth trumps “their” truth based on evidence and testimony.
  • Questionable and inconsistent testimony are proof of trauma and therefore exactitude; recalling an accusation to someone is proof that the action in the accusation took place.
  • Statutes of limitations do not exist; any allegation of decades prior is as valid as any in the present. All of us are subject at any moment to unsubstantiated accusations from decades past that will destroy lives.
  • Assertion of an alleged crime is unimpeachable proof. Recall of where, when, why, and how it took place is irrelevant.
  • Individual accusations will always be subservient to cosmic causes; individuals are irrelevant if they do not serve ideological aims. All accusations fit universal stereotypes whose rules of finding guilt or innocence trump those of individual cases.
  • The accuser establishes the conditions under which charges are investigated; the accused nods assent.

Our cultural traditions are being insidiously rewritten in this new Dark Age. We know now that Euripides’s Phaedra should have been believed, as a female accuser of rape. Perhaps university presses can either reissue properly corrected editions or ban the Hippolytus entirely. No doubt we will ban Racine’s Phèdre as well. Harper Lee’s Tom Robinson deserved his fate because his female accuser should have been believed—and perhaps To Kill a Mockingbird should be rewritten as well. In our time, we have finally and only now belatedly realized that Tawana Brawley’s voice was stifled. more

7 Glimpses Into The Social Decay That Is Voraciously Eating Away At The Fabric Of Our Country
Everyone agrees that America is not the same place that it once was. Our society is undergoing a fundamental transformation that is absolutely breathtaking, and some of the changes have been positive. But many would argue that most of the changes have been negative, and the truth is that we can see evidence of this all around us. Wikipedia defines social decay as “the tendency for society to decline or disintegrate over time, perhaps due to the lapse or breakdown of traditional social support systems.” As a society, we are more disconnected from one another than we have ever been before, and perhaps this is one of the big reasons why so much anger and hatred are growing all around us. At this point, a large portion of the population doesn’t even seem to possess a basic level of empathy and compassion for their fellow citizens, and that has frightening implications for the future of our nation.

Because we are so disconnected from one another, it is very easy for each of us to get intensely focused on the details of our own daily lives.

But when we step back and take a broader view of things, the extent to which our society has deteriorated is quite stunning.

Today, I would like to share with you 7 glimpses into the social decay that is voraciously eating away at the fabric of our country…continue

Ten Signs of a Culture’s End
There are ten signs that depict the end of a culture. Great civilizations of the past were destroyed when people saw these signs but failed to act. Each of these indicators is with us today.

The first sign of the end of a culture is that of a society which no longer worships or acknowledges God.

Christianity had played a significant role in the discovery and settlement of America. It had provided a standard in judging education, legislation, and behavior-both public and private. In the 1990s, it has actually become unpopular to advocate traditional Judeo-Christian values, such as the Ten Commandments. Thanks to Political Correctness, the popular culture ridicules those who worship God as the sovereign creator. Instead, it is popular to put our faith and trust in ourselves or in other creations of God. continue

Decline of morality and rise of sheer decadence:
The UN Is Normalizing Pedophilia: The Deep State Is Free to Prey Upon Your Children
The United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights is sanctioning a sexual revolution that will culminate in the legalization and whole-hearted support of transgenderism but will also support the legalization of pedophilia.

As the Deep State is further exposed for their role in Pedogate, we can expect more counterattacks such as the legalization of pedophilia.

Elimination/genocide of Western Civilization
Their Population Control Agenda Is Working – The Birth Rate In the United States Has Fallen To Another All-Time Record Low
October 18, 2018 by IWB
The elite have worked very hard to slow down birth rates all over the world, and their efforts appear to be working. Just as we have witnessed in so many other countries, the birth rate in the United States continues to fall. In fact, it just plunged to yet another new all-time record low. So why would the elite want this to happen? Well, they believe that climate change is the greatest threat that our planet is facing, and they also believe that humans are the primary driver of climate change, and so they are convinced that if they can get people to have fewer babies they are actually “saving the world”. And according to the most recent CDC numbers, they have made a tremendous amount of progress in accomplishing that mission

US birth rates have plummeted to historic lows, new CDC figures reveal.

38 Pictures That Show The Decline Of America Since The 1950s
The 50s were not perfect, and much progress toward equality for all has been made since then. However the decline of civility and the rise of the unhinged hatred that we see today has never been seen on such a scale before.


For decent men and the women who love them

 The following article speaks for itself. At first glance, it may seem idealistic and overly romantic; however, it does encourage thoughtfulness and is well worth the read.

Not So Toxic Masculinity–Men, We Need Your Strength

I don’t intend to judge every man I meet as a possible attacker, but I am foolish not to think there is a possibility. Every woman can attest to that undercurrent of fear. That being said, I also believe that most men coming upon a woman being attacked would use that same strength to protect her from harm. I have seen it happen many times.

Is It Okay To Celebrate Halloween? For Many Americans, It Is A Time For Blood Rituals And Unspeakable Acts Of Evil

Information we probably did not know

by Michael Snyder 

 What I am about to share with you is incredibly disturbing.  Every year on October 31st, some of the most horrifying acts imaginable are carried out in dark corners and back rooms all across America.  In this article, you are going to read about some of those acts.  But for most Americans, Halloween is a supposedly “innocent” holiday that is all about dressing up, eating lots of candy and having fun.  When I was growing up, I gladly participated in the festivities too, because I didn’t understand what the holiday was all about.  According to the National Retail Federation, approximately 70 percent of all Americans celebrate Halloween, and a total of somewhere around 9 billion dollars will be spent on the holiday this year.  But most Americans do not understand that almost all of our modern “Halloween traditions” have their roots in a bloody ancient pagan festival known as Samhain

Minnesota court orders Keith Ellison divorce records unsealed

– The Washington Times
Saturday, October 13, 2018

A county court has ordered Rep. Keith Ellison’s divorce records to be unsealed, allowing more scrutiny into the Democrat’s private life as he fights off the abuse allegations upending his campaign for Minnesota attorney general.

Hennepin County Family Court referee Jason Hutchison released an order Friday saying the records of Mr. Ellison’s 2012 split with ex-wife Kim Ellison will be unsealed Oct. 17, ruling that “open access is the presumption in Minnesota.”

The treacherous totalitarian enemies within fully unmasked

Pure psychopathic evil now appears to be running rampant on the American political front. 

The elites were infuriated by the American electorate’s victory over them in the 2016 election and feverishly sought to overturn it.  Challenges to the election results, ballot recounts, and threats to the electoral college members to not award Trump his earned votes all failed.  

Thus, they proceeded with their standby tactics of funding useful idiots, er, resistance groups to engage in the standard rioting, smashing of windows, beating up members of the opposition, etc. in order to create chaos and the illusion of a total uprising against Trump.

Well that did not work, it actually backfired because not only did the Dem leaders refuse to condemn the lawless behavior, but they actually encouraged it.


Auntie Maxine was the first to vigorously advocate the harassment and/or violence against all Trump supporters, cabinet members and GOP congressional members.  However, she was merely the front voice for the enemies of our Constitution who continue to engage in treachery.


As a result, many moderate Dems were becoming disgusted. The #walkaway movement began and continues to grow.

The Kavanaugh nomination finally exposed the the Dems servitude to their globalist masters. They could not disqualify him on his merit sooo they whipped out the time honored card of sexual assault, the accusation of which was proven to be unfounded and the accuser’s veracity questioned.

Unfortunately the facts do not matter and Kavanaugh was not merely drug through the mud, he was burned at the stake. Thankfully, he proved to be a man of steel, did not back down, and now sits on the SCOTUS bench

The following articles discuss the seditious activities of ole’ George and his buddy Tom Steyer and their part in the ultimate move toward a totalitarian globalist world. Read more

REAL collusion: Democrat lawyers met with FBI to share notes on Russia allegations before FISA warrant was issued

Those who have followed details of the still-developing Spygate scandal, in which the Obama administration used a politicized Justice Department and FBI against a rival presidential campaign, have long suspected that there was Russian “collusion” alright, but not between Moscow and the 2016 Trump campaign.

To the contrary, the available evidence suggested there was a pretty clear connection between the campaign of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and elements of the Russian government. In fact, the current chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., has said as much publicly.

Now, thanks to The Hill’s John Solomon, new details have emerged that essentially prove the point that Democrats, not the Trump campaign, were not only involved with Russians during the 2016 campaign, but were very much a part of creating the phony “Trump-Russia collusion” narrative:
