Lifting the Steele Curtain…HRC Lies About Her MegaDirty Tricks & Russan Collusion

Lifting the Steele Curtain The Fusion GPS dossier was one of the dirtiest political tricks in U.S. history. The Steele dossier has already become a thing of John le Carré-like intrigue—British spies, Kremlin agents, legal cutouts, hidden bank accounts. What all this obscures is the more immediate point: The dossier amounts to one of the dirtiest tricks in U.S. political history. It was perpetrated by Team Clinton and yielded a vast payoff for Hillary’s campaign. The Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign hired the opposition-research firm Fusion GPS in April 2016 to dig up dirt on Donald Trump. Fusion in turn hired former U.K. spook Christopher Steele to assemble the (now largely discredited) dossier. That full dossier of allegations wasn’t made public until after the election, in January 2017. And the media and Democrats continue to peddle the line that it played no role during the election itself. “Details from the dossier were not reported before Election Day,” ran a recent CNN story.

Progressive, “fair wage” pizza shop closing its doors

Progressives take note. This is what will happen to businesses in places like San Francisco and Seattle. Its what happens when the value you add can’t make up for the costs you have.

Progressive, “fair wage” pizza shop closing its doorsJazz ShawPosted at 10:41 am on October 25, 2017Share on FacebookShare on Twitter2In the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston back in 2015, the people at the nonprofit organization Haley House came up with a novel idea. They would open a pizza shop based on the principles of economic justice and fair wages to support the community. Named Dudley Dough, the shop would pay wages far above the minimum which many people in that industry earn, with added incentives for training and community development. It was an inspiring idea.See Also: Dossier revelation to put FBI on the hot seat?Unfortunately for them, only two years later the place is closing down. It turns out that operating a for-profit business on the principles of a nonprofit social justice operation results in an undesirable side-effect. They were literally not producing a profit. (Boston Globe) TRENDING: Dossier revelation to put FBI on the hot seat? The loss of Dudley Dough means more than losing a pizza parlor to Roxbury regulars.They say they’re losing a community resource in the heart of Dudley Square and a singular business based on a premise of economic justice and healthy food.Launched in 2015, the fair-wage pizza shop will close at the end of the year, according to Bing Broderick, executive director for the nonprofit Haley House, which oversees the shop. While popular, the shop is not breaking even financially, which has put stress on the wider nonprofit organization.One of the team leaders at Dudley is insisting that nobody, “is looking at it as a failure.” And on some levels, perhaps it wasn’t. For the period of time they managed to stay open they made lots of friends in the community and their employees earned a great salary and received other opportunities. But the fact remains that it was supposed to be operated as a business and would prove a point about a more “fair” economic system.Here’s the problem with that theory. We live in a capitalist society and the business environment is fair… but it’s also harsh and very competitive. Going into the casual eatery business space is one of the more demanding challenges imaginable for a start-up. There is competition literally around almost every corner in most cities and everyone is fighting for a piece of the pie. (Or the pizza pie in this case.)Plus, let’s face it guys… you’ve got way too much green stuff on your pizza.Labor costs are a major driver in the business model of any such operation.

Survey: Most minorities not offended by microaggressions – Hot Air

Remember that list of microaggressions that was circulated by the University of California system in 2015. Allahpundit wrote about it here at the time. It suggested that students should be taught to avoid triggering phrases as “America is a melting pot,” and “When I look at you I don’t see color.” Over at the Atlantic, author Conor Friedersdorf points out that a recent Cato/YouGov poll asked minorities how they felt about some of the phrases the University of California judged to be microaggressions. It turns out the majority weren’t offended at all:See Also: Chuck Grassley puts the screws to Trump on ethanolTelling a recent immigrant, “you speak good English” was deemed “not offensive” by 77 percent of Latinos; saying “I don’t notice people’s race” was deemed “not offensive” by 71 percent of African Americans and 80 percent of Latinos; saying “America is a melting pot” was deemed not offensive by 77 percent of African Americans and 70 percent of Latinos; saying “America is the land of opportunity” was deemed “not offensive” by 93 percent of African Americans and 89 percent of Latinos; and saying “everyone can succeed in this society if they work hard enough” was deemed “not offensive” by 89 percent of Latinos and 77 percent of African Americans…the literature was not circulated as the perspective of campus progressives on what should not be said; it was circulated as if it represented what offends and demeans people of color, even though huge majorities of African Americans and Latinos say, when actually consulted, that those very same statements are “not offensive.”In other words, someone on the far left claimed that minorities were offended by these phrases, when in fact the overwhelming majority of them are not. Not only did someone claim this, they made it part of diversity training and guidance for students. As Friedersdorf points out, what they have actually done is misinform a great many young people about what is true. That’s not the sort of thing higher education is supposed to be about. TRENDING: The secret to marriage is being married Friedersdorf doesn’t say this but I will: The other thing these college administrators (the ones using this material) have done is create racial tension on campus where it ought not exist.

Dudich, who serves as Audience Strategy Editor, displays a lack of integrity throughout the video, manages videos which go “on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram” for the Times.While talking about being objective at the Times, Dudich replies candidly, “No Im not, thats why Im here.” Dudich considers himself an important player at the New York Times, telling the Project Veritas Journalist “my voice is on… my imprint is on every video we do.” Dudich goes on to explain what he might do to target President Trump:”Id target his businesses, his dumb fuck of a son, Donald Jr., and Eric…”Target that. Get people to boycott going to his hotels. Boycott… So a lot of the Trump brands, if you can ruin the Trump brand and you put pressure on his business and you start investigating his business and you start shutting it down, or theyre hacking or other things. He cares about his business more than he cares about being President. He would resign. Or hed lash out and do something incredibly illegal, which he would have to.”When the undercover journalist asks Dudich if he could make sure that the anti-Trump stories make it to the front, he replied, “Oh, we always do.”As stated in the NYT Ethical Handbook, the goal of the New York Times is to “cover the news as impartially as possible.” It continues in Section 62:”Journalists have no place on the playing field of politics. Staff members are entitled to vote, but they must do nothing that might raise questions about their professional neutrality or that of The Times.”Before working at the Times, Dudich worked on the political campaigns of both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. In 2016, he was recruited to work for the Clinton campaign: “So I have that background, so when Clinton in 2016… they needed a volunteer strategist to do video… well, they needed someone to help%

Sanders: Whites Cant Criticize Protest #NFL

I’m glad we put to rest that only non-whites are allowed to criticize those who protest.  By non-white I assume she meant “African-American” not black.  In any case I, as a white person, have definitely been put in my place.

I suppose that if she has her way white folks will have to shut up for the next 400 years to make up for the alleged atrocities we perpetrated on blacks since Columbus landed.

Maybe its my white privilege showing, but I don’t intend to shut up.  I have as much right to protest and criticize as she does.  Of course, everything I do and say will be considered racist but….that argument as been worn a bit thin.  No one believes it any more and pretty soon there will be a real backlash.  It may not be pretty.

Not everything is about race” to which she responded, “Maybe not for you is it, but for folks who are protesting police…the issue of policy brutality is absolutely about race.”The exchange got heated after Ferguson said, “You stand up and are one of those that are in charge of helping the military. You have a duty, an obligation to the President of the United States of America to leave a situation where people were basically giving the middle finger to the men and women who fought and protect this country.”Sanders responded, “That is false and you should be ashamed.”

Black Lives Matter protesters shout down speech by…the ACLU – #BLM

Black Lives Matter protesters shout down speech by…the ACLUJohn SextonPosted at 8:01 pm on October 4, 2017Share on FacebookShare on Twitter28Remember all the controversy over the ACLU of Virginia’s decision to defend the free speech rights of white supremacist groups in Charlottesville? Briefly, the city wanted to force protest away from downtown and the ACLU fought it on free speech grounds. After the day turned violent, the ACLU of Virginia’s executive director, Claire G. Gastanaga, put out a press release blaming the police for failing to protect people. The police handling of the protests in Charlottesville was denounced by people on both sides of the clashes, but this didn’t stop people on the left from writing think pieces blaming the ACLU for the violence and the death of Heather Heyer.See Also: Michael Moore: Hey, let’s repeal the ‘outdated’ 2nd AmendmentWhich brings us to today when Claire Gastanaga was scheduled to speak at William and Mary on the topic of “Students and the First Amendment.” Moments after she was introduced, a group of protesters affiliated with Black Lives Matter came to the stage and began shouting her down. From Reason: TRENDING: Statistician: After researching gun violence, I no longer believe in gun control Students took to the stage just a few moments after Gastañaga began her remarks. At first, she attempted to spin the demonstration as a welcome example of the kind of thing she had come to campus to discuss, commenting “Good, I like this,” as they lined up and raised their signs. “I’m going to talk to you about knowing your rights, and protests and demonstrations, which this illustrates very well. Then I’m going to respond to questions from the moderators, and then questions from the audience.”It was the last remark she was able to make before protesters drowned her out with cries of, “ACLU, you protect Hitler, too.” They also chanted, “the oppressed are not impressed,” “shame, shame, shame, shame,” (an ode to the Faith Militant’s treatment of Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones, though why anyone would want to be associated with the religious fanatics in that particular conflict is beyond me), “blood on your hands,” “the revolution will not uphold the Constitution,” and, uh, “liberalism is white supremacy.”After twenty minutes, the protesters were handed a microphone and allowed to read a statement. When the statement was over, they continued chanting, refusing%2

Let’s Ban the Illegal Guns That the Las Vegas Shooter Used #Las Vegas

Hilary Clinton has already come out for more gun control.  The bodies are still warm, the injured are fighting for their lives, and she shows such “compassion”.   Other Democrats are piling on as well.

From what I heard on the videos, this guy was using fully automatic weapons.  I would like to know what in what jurisdiction these are legal.  I suppose these idiots want to ban the fully automatic weapons.

Actually, their plans are much more insidious.  They would probably ban any weapon that can be converted to fuilly automatic (as has already been done in New Jersey),

They would ban any long gun that could be used in a sniper situation.  That would include most hunting rifles.

They would, of course, ban hand guns.

This leaves us with nothing but shotguns, muzzle loaders, and bb guns to defend ourselves with.  Of course criminals will not comply with any of these laws.  Perhaps they should ban criminals.

Perhaps they should mandate that everyone, not just gun owners, get mental health exams.  Then the cops could raid suspect homes for any new contraband.  While they’re at it they could round in any “fascists” that pose a danger to the government.  Anyone who has been in jail, who is a gang member, or who is an illegal alien would be exempted.

They would ban the Constitution.

Are these scenarios far fetched?  They have happened elsewhere.  They could very well happen here unless we are vigilant.

Steven Crowder infiltrates Antifa at Ben Shapiro event – Hot Air Excellent work here…needs to go viral #antifa

Steven Crowder infiltrates Antifa at Ben Shapiro eventJohn SextonPosted at 3:21 pm on September 29, 2017Share on FacebookShare on Twitter14Wednesday I wrote about the far left’s plans to disrupt a speech by Ben Shapiro at the University of Utah. What I didn’t know is that YouTube host Steven Crowder and his producer had infiltrated a local Antifa group and captured them on tape discussing plans and handing out weapons.See Also: Will the NFL take a knee on this dirty hit?As you’ll see in this clip, Crowder’s producer Jared put on a disguise and met with members of Antifa who installed an app on his phone to allow them to communicate. The protest plan, according to the organizer, was “plain clothes and hard tactics.” That meant not dressing in black or wearing masks, which had been banned by police, but preparing for violence. At a subsequent meeting, one member of the group discusses the guns he has in his trunk. Another member hands Jared an ice pick. Jared immediately makes an excuse and takes the footage of local police who have already been monitoring the situation. Crowder ends the clip by focusing on the media. TRENDING: Steven Crowder infiltrates Antifa at Ben Shapiro event Crowder ends the clip by focusing on the media response. Local media see the video and are offered a copy but aren’t interested in airing it. Instead, they run a standard report about student protesters. But national media were also present and also saw the clip of Antifa members planning for violence and, according to Crowder, no one wanted the footage.Here’s my take on this. Media outlets are probably worried about getting scammed. They don’t know Crowder and the fact that he’s a YouTube host/comedian probably doesn’t inspire confidence. For all they know, the whole thing is a stunt and they probably don’t want to spend time or effort investigating. I’m not saying there’s no bias there, only that a local channel with a deadline and limited resources is probably less likely to go out on what looks like a limb.The situation with national media is very different. A Nightline producer has time and resources to take a tape like this and verify the facts, talk with police, even interview the people shown in the clip to get their side. So it’s hard to understand why someone like that wouldn’t be interested in this video, except of course that it makes Antifa look pretty bad. Perhaps if there had been some actual Nazis present to help balance the narrative, but as it is the only story here is far left%2
