More data points showing that Joe Biden’s “victory” is the equivalent of a thousand year flood or meteor strike. It could have happened legitimately, but it is very unlikely.
Left-leaning but honest liberal Matt Taibbi has been creating a lot of headaches for America’s far-left fringe Democrats lately. In his latest screed he destroys corrupt leftist corporate media. He documents how the Democrat’s media toadies have strayed so far from a free and fair press that they bear strong resemblance to the former Soviet Union’s Pravda. It is worth noting that other than his gig at Rolling Stone, Taibbi has been forced to self-publish on Substack as most of corporate media has tried to shun him. They cannot handle the truth, but it isn’t stopping him.
Two separate articles. In the first one several California cities enacted “hero pay” rules for “front line” workers in such places as grocery stores during the Wuhan Flu epidemic, giving these workers $4 to $5 more per hour, effectively increasing the already excessive minimum wage in the state. You see, thanks to California’s generous labor laws workers were already making $18 to $24 an hour. Anyone who knows the first thing about the grocery business know it operates on razor-thin margins. The result of this state sanctioned pay boost? A number of large grocery chains, including Kroger closed multiple stores and let go of workers. Hundreds of workers lost their jobs overnight. The kicker? This only applies to the big retailers. That makes sense.
In the second article it is pointed out that there is a nasty little rider attached to the government’s just passed “Covid relief bill” that prohibits states from cutting taxes. What does this have to do with Covid relief? So bad is the situation in Democrat states and so bad is leftist economics that they actually have to try to punish well-run conservative states. I suspect this will be challenged in court and struck down. It is a gross violation of Federalism.
But the tactics must change if we are to defeat big tech, corporatist media, the dysfunctional education cabal and especially the corrupt DC state. Here is a great interview with Gab’s CEO:
We must decentralize our approach to government and life. Here are some tactics to be employed:
Take over government at the state and local level.
Deplatform from corporate media and big tech.
If your church has gone “woke” leave it.
Pull your kids out of leftist public schools and put them in private or home-school them.
Support local businesses, not large corporations. Especially support the small businessmen and women in your area.
Stop buying products period from large “woke” companies like Nike, Amazon, Coke, ect. Yes, it’s a long list.
I am already doing many of these things. It is time for the majority of American to do everything it can.
Not any more. Today’s left-wing progressives have as much in common with latter day liberals as an elephant has in common with a fern plant. I guess they are both carbon based life forms. These people are not “progressive” at all. They are in fact an odd combination of the worst of Marxism and Nazism. The latest outrage is the despicable Southern Poverty Law Group, a leftist hate-tank, lobbying to get six Dr. Seuss books banned. This is the modern day digital version of book burning. Nazi, anyone?
As late as four or five years ago, maybe even one these imbeciles would have rightly been dismissed as lunatics. Not now. The are running the leftist culture war. This will not stop until we the people stop it.
Some recent polls suggest that close to 16% of youthful gen Z-ers identify as LGBTQ with large increases in “B” and “T”. I have seen some admittedly unscientific polls putting the number near 20%. What is the name of humanity is going on here? Throughout most of our recorded history homosexuality held held fairly steady around 2% and transgenderism around 0.2%. That started to change with the millennials born in the 80’s and 90’s and has exploded with those born around and after the year 2000.
Is this some major change in biology or “liberation” of what used to be taboo? Highly unlikely. What we are looking at is a Trojan Horse being used by corrupt leftists to destroy the country and traditional, moral culture. Especially when it comes to the explosion in perceived transgenderism, which was correctly viewed as a mental disorder until just a few years ago, nature does not support the numbers. Very few people are born anything other than definitively male or female. Hermaphrodites or those with ambiguous sex are very rare. With the far left taking over academia and media, they are pushing to normalize and mainstream transgenderism. Add in normal teen rebellion, confusion about sexuality in the teen years, peer acceptance, social media pressure (large numbers of teens report being influenced by this abhorrent medium), and the fact that in some quarters LGBTQ is now cool, and you have what some psychologists call “mass psychogenic illness”.
A strong case can be made that the “trans” movement is now the single greatest cultural threat to our society. If the left gets its way it will use this to destroy religious freedom: the Democrat Party is already trying. The good news if there is any is that the movement has a way of making enemies of other leftist “victim groups”. With transgender males fighting to compete in women’s sports feminism is clearly being attacked. As well, many gay groups are openly hostile to the radical trans movement, as are most people of color. If the trans movement is not stopped, additional even worse things will be headed America’s way. Next up: normalization of pedophilia.
And are in turn trying to destroy America. An alternate title for this article could have been “Revenge of The Hippies”. The author does an excellent job documenting how 1960’s radicals infected higher education in the 1980’s and 90’s and gradually transformed traditional, classical fact and reason based education into agenda driven indoctrination. They in turn “educated” a whole new generation (the millennials and Gen Z-ers) who are today’s cancel culture social-justice warriors. These people flock to the fields of education, destroying primary and secondary schools, media and “journalism” (he correctly calls it “infotainment”), technology, social media and government. The evidence he offers is overwhelming: as late as the 1980’s college faculty identified as liberal or conservative at roughly a 50-50 split. In fact I am old enough to recall that my elite, now horribly leftist alma mater was relatively conservative as late as that era. I would not go anywhere near the place now. Nowadays most “elite” colleges and universities are virtual leftist monopolies, self identified.
