This soundbite from MSNBC personifies the moonbattery currently infecting American discourse. New York Times editorial board member, Mara Gay, shares her experience driving to Long Island, New York, on Memorial Day and how disturbed she was witnessing American flags.
Ms. Gay states the implied message by anyone displaying an American flag is: “this is my country”, and she finds that “alarmingly disturbing.”
According to the New York Times outlook, it is unthinkable to contemplate that people would show patriotism -actual, real life patriotism- by flying American flags and associating themselves with America as their country. The entire concept is just horrific. WATCH:
No good communist ideologue would ever want to be exposed to American flags that represent concepts like “Liberty”, “Independence”, or heaven forbid “Freedom”. Ms. Gay was exposed to authentic American patriotism, the equivalent of garlic to a vampire; and be warned… she is committed to doubling her efforts to isolate, marginalize and ridicule anyone who dare fly Old Glory…
Fly or embrace the American Flag as representative of your pride in America, your nation, and the New York Times will call you racist.
There is a massive campaign unfolding against Facebook. The biggest and most stupid mistake they made was to take sides in politics by banning and canceling anyone with who they disagree. Besides all of that, Facebook has invaded people’s privacy like no other platform. They track everything you do and sell that info to the highest bidder. The number of active users of Facebook (those people who have logged onto the site in the previous month) has reached a historic high of 2.45 billion. To put this in some context, approximately 32% of the global population now uses the social media platform, and the trend line of participation is still going up. About 63% of American adults are on Facebook and 65% of the youth.
Back in 2004, when a 19-year-old Zuckerberg had just started building Facebook, he sent his Harvard friends a series of instant messages in which he marveled at the fact that 4,000 people had volunteered their personal information to his nascent social network. “People just submitted it … I don’t know why … They ‘trust me’ … dumb fucks.”
In 2019, Facebook was ordered to create new layers of oversight for its collection and handling of users’ data by the Federal Trade Commission. The FTC detailed a privacy settlement with the social network. Still, the FTC buckled to the lobbying power of Facebook. The F.T.C.’s commissioners approved the restrictions in a 3-to-2 vote but drew very sharp criticism for not going far enough. The FTC utterly failed to curb the data collection of the world’s largest social media company. Republican and Democratic lawmakers even said that the settlement was a drop in the bucket for Facebook, The FTC failed to limit a core practice that has repeatedly raised privacy questions, and since they have ventured into manipulating elections precisely as the Russians were accused of back in 2016. The people simply being victims of this cancel culture is growing exponentially.
So just how stupid are people? It seems to be very stupid. Back in 2018, the Observer revealed how Cambridge Analytica, a company funded by conservative billionaire Robert Mercer, acquired and exploited the data associated with 50 million Facebook profiles. It appears that while Facebook had been aware of what the Observer described as “unprecedented data harvesting” for two years, it did not notify the affected users.
Senator Rand Paul appears on Maria Bartiromo to discuss the ongoing ramification from current leftist policy as being produced on Capitol Hill. The interview begins with Senator Paul discussing the leftist definitions of ‘infrastructure’ and how left-wing groups are beneficiaries of trillions of taxpayer funds.
On the economic ramifications Senator Paul notes the impact of massive capital gains increases and how increasing corporate income taxes only provides incentives for national companies to establish themselves overseas to avoid tax liability. The multinational corps, those already positioned overseas, do not have the same risk exposure to corporate tax increases, thus they do not oppose legislation that hurts national business and small U.S. corporations.
Overall the points made by Rand Paul are all valid; however, those in DC still hold back from pointing out the intent of the JoeBama group – that’s frustrating. This game where incompetence is claimed under the guise of ‘benefit of doubt’ is a severe weakness within the GOP. The refusal to aggressively confront Obama 3.0 is beyond frustrating.
Anyone who believes Democrats own exclusive opposition to the America First principles are completely ignoring the deliberate construct of the republican party. There are just as many -if not more- natural enemies within the Republican apparatus as there are within the Democrat group. “America-First” is antithetical to the UniParty.
The frustration amid the MAGA community is valid. Everything about it is righteous. The mechanisms that run the system in DC must be deconstructed if we are to win the battles and the war against this massive enemy. We have the largest coalition of American patriots on our side; however, there are only a handful of representatives willing to confront with the needed ferocity.
Multinationals want control; some call that corporatism…. but the names are moot. Multinationals want control, and capitalism does not allow them control; that is why multinationals do not want capitalism. Multinationals use lobbyists to generate regulations that stall competition.
Multinationals do not want competition; they are, by nature of their interest, anti-capitalists.
This misunderstanding is everywhere.
Most people think when they vote for a federal politician -a House or Senate representative- they are voting for a person who will go to Washington DC and write or enact legislation. This is the old-fashioned “schoolhouse rock” perspective based on decades past.
There is not a single person in congress writing legislation or laws. In modern politics not a single member of the House of Representatives or Senator writes a law, or puts pen to paper to write out a legislative construct. This simply doesn’t happen.
Over the past several decades a system of constructing legislation has taken over Washington DC that more resembles a business operation than a legislative body.
The for-profit groups (mostly multinational corporations) have a purpose in Washington DC to shape policy, legislation and laws favorable to their interests. They have fully staffed offices just like any business would – only their ‘business‘ is getting legislation for their unique interests.
These groups are filled with highly-paid lawyers who represent the interests of the entity and actually write laws and legislation briefs.
In the modern era this is actually the origination of the laws that we eventually see passed by congress. Within the walls of these buildings within Washington DC is where the ‘sausage’ is actually made. Again, no elected official is usually part of this law origination process.
Almost all legislation created is not ‘high profile’, they are obscure changes to current laws, regulations or policies that no-one pays attention to. The passage of the general bills within legislation is not covered in media. Ninety-nine percent of legislative activity happens without anyone outside the system even paying any attention to it.
Once the corporation (multinational) or representative organizational entity has written the law they want to see passed – they hand it off to the lobbyists.
The lobbyists are people who have deep contacts within the political bodies of the legislative branch, usually former House/Senate staff or former House/Senate politicians themselves.
The lobbyist takes the written brief, the legislative construct, and it’s their job to go to congress and sell it. “Selling it” means finding politicians who will accept the brief, sponsor their bill and eventually get it to a vote and passage.
Corporations (special interest group) write the legislation. Lobbyists take the law and go find politician(s) to support it. Politicians get support from their peers using tenure and status etc. Eventually, if things go according to norm, the legislation gets a vote.
Within every step of the process there are expense account lunches, dinners, trips, venue tickets and a host of other customary financial way-points to generate/leverage a successful outcome. The amount of money spent is proportional to the benefit derived from the outcome.
The important part to remember is that the origination of the entire process is EXTERNAL to congress.
Congress does not write laws or legislation, special interest groups do. Lobbyists are paid, some very well paid, to get politicians to go along with the need of the legislative group. When a House or Senate member becomes educated on the intent of the legislation, they have attended the sales pitch; and when they find out the likelihood of support for that legislation; they can then position their own (or their families) financial interests to benefit from the consequence of passage. It is a process similar to insider trading on Wall Street, except the trading is based on knowing who will benefit from a legislative passage.
When we understand the business of DC, we understand the difference between legislation with a traditional purpose and modern legislation with a financial and political agenda.
If you know a better solution to this mess than repeal of the 17th amendment, I am all ears.
If, as the constitution outlined, the Senate were still a place where all legislation required a 2/3 majority for passage; and if, as the constitution outlined, the Senate were a body filled with representatives selected by State Houses instead of popular election – then perhaps Senators could not be purchased by multinational interests. Alas it is not.
Passage of the 17th amendment took away the very intentional roadblock of the Republican framework that Jefferson spoke of when he called it a saucer to cool the hot emotional tea of short-sighted legislation. The constitution outlined consent as “two-thirds” (66), which was progressively watered down to become “three-fifths” (60) as the majority rule; and substantively, as it now stands according to democrats objectives, one-half plus one (51).
We are on the precipice and the GOP operate as if the constitution burning can be restored if they just reach across the aisle more.
The police officer who responded to 16-year-old Ma’Kiyah Bryant’s stabbing rampage was an expert marksman with military training. His quick reaction likely saved the life of another young woman who was milliseconds away from being stabbed by the out of control teenager.
His response to the incident should not be controversial given all of the facts as they developed in a few seconds upon his arrival. A neighbor’s CCTV security footage shows another angle of the shooting.
Daily Mail – Neighbor Donavon Brinson “told Fox News Thursday morning he believes Bryant could have fatally stabbed the young woman she was seen lunging at with a knife if the cop hadn’t opened fire in Columbus, Ohio, Tuesday afternoon.
‘He could have either not fired and the young lady in pink could have been stabbed in the neck and brutally or fatally injured and then he could shot [Bryant] and we could have had two [young women] dead – or he could have responded in the way that he did and one young lady lost her life,’ he said.” (link)
News reports show the responding officer is a US Air National Guardsman who received an expert marksman badge with an M4 Carbine.
Unfortunately the entire event continues to be politicized by those who are attempting to divide the nation based on racial grievances. However, there is little doubt amid the mind of the majority that the police officer acted according to his training to save the life of another black woman. It is only from the perspective of the toxic left and their allied media that some other instantaneous action should have been taken.
Racial antagonist LeBron James, a basketball player for the NBA who thinks very highly of himself, attempted to threaten the police officer then retracted the tweet after backlash from the majority voice.
Obviously the massive multinational corporation cannot admit they made a mistake lest they get attacked by the extremists on the far-left; however, all of Coca-Cola’s recent moves since they stupidly put their company into the toxic political mess surrounding election reform legislation -particularly in GA- indicates the company is experiencing destabilizing impacts from the MAGA boycott. DO NOT RELENT !
(Bloomberg Legal) The Coca-Cola Co. announced Wednesday that it is moving legal chief Bradley Gayton to a “strategic consultant” role less than a year after he joined the company and promoting in-house lawyer Monica Howard Douglas to general counsel.
Gayton, who joined Coca-Cola on Sept. 1 and recently announced ambitious new diversity requirements for the company’s outside lawyers, will immediately become a strategic consultant to Coca-Cola chairman and CEO James Quincey.
[…] Coca-Cola spokesman Scott Leith, when asked about the impetus for its general counsel change or whether Gayton’s strategic consulting role is a permanent or temporary position, said the company would have no additional comment. (read more)
It is almost impossible to boycott all of the multinational corporations that are attempting to influence U.S. politics. However, if we focus like a laser on two or three: Delta Airlines, Coca-Cola and Major League Baseball, we can send a massive message that will hit the boardrooms of all others.
Take Coke down a few pegs…. and the rest will fall in line.
These statements should not come as a surprise as they are from the same ideological group, Obama’s crew. The White House and Valerie Jarrett are going back to the playbook where using race as a strategy to divide and conquer is deployed. This is Obama’s Alinsky playbook as deployed repeatedly.
JoeBama says “she was a child”, while JoeBama’s script writer says she was “in a knife fight.” Apparently pretending not to know the well built 16-year-old named Ma’Khia Bryant was shot while in the process of attempting to stab two unarmed teenage girls who were also black.
This is sociopathic level political manipulation by the Obama Chicago crew; the real team behind the administration. Continuing to push the ‘anger games’ in the United States is an ongoing effort of the Obama-minded leftists and communist activist groups who support them.
Obama doesn’t care, he doesn’t even hang out with black people, so long as the larger goals are achieved.
The Chicago crew want to advance radical leftist policies, destroy the American capitalistic system and fundamentally change the United States by diminishing it; while simultaneously keeping all the wealth under the control of an elite group of aligned interests.
Mad Maxine Waters opened up her capricious maw and out came calls for civil unrest and riots if BLM didn’t get the conviction they wanted from the Derek Chauvin trial.
“I know this, we’ve got to stay in the streets,” Waters said to a group of activists. “We are looking for a guilty verdict.”
“If nothing does not happen then we have to not only stay in the streets but we have to fight for justice,” she continued. “I am very hopeful and I hope that we are going to get a verdict that is guilty, guilty, guilty and if we don’t, we cannot go away.”
Waters hoisted herself on her own petard. Mad Max has given the defense in the trial a reason to call for the case to be overturned.
The judge acknowledged the influence of Mad Max’s unhinged rantings have done to the jury members who were not sequestered;
“I’ll give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned.”
Riots do not replace the run of law. Although it seems like they have for the last four years with Soros funded Burn Loot Murder setting Democrat Blue Cities crumbling under arson and constant riots and looting.
This is not America. This is a third world country.
Even in the Democratic party where lunacy is rewarded, a few Democrats are upset with the unhinged Mad Max’s comments although Nancy Pelosi, Democrat Speaker of the house, won’t condemn or censor Waters.
Reminder- the Democrats put Trump through a second impeachment claiming Trump called for “insurrection” and civil violence. When Democrat congresswoman Maxine Waters actually calls for riots and violence….crickets.
Maxine Waters is a national embarrassment to the state of California and our country. She should be stripped her of the chairmanship to the House Financial Services Committee and removed from office, and in a just world, arrested for insurrection and inciting violence.
But don’t bet the farm on that. Nothing will happen unless WE MAKE IT HAPPEN!
