    It was expected that protests to Donald Trumps Presidency would last for a while, but we have past 100 days and they show no signs of abating. Many have wondered how it is that people can afford to be out protesting every day, and how the permanent protestors are actually supporting themselves. Soon after Trumps election, a job ad appeared on Craigslist offering $15 per hour plus gas money for activists to protest in different locations around the country courtesy of (a Soros funded movement). Many attributed this to a Bernie Sanders group. But the media were quick to...

    We talked to "Matt" about all of it (he started as an unpaid protester, graduated to "Paid Protester" at the 2011 Take Back the Capitol event, and worked as an organizer for the Service Employees International Union) and he explained how a career in activism really works ...yes, there is absolutely some money floating around activism, that's inevitable in a capitalist society. But in the end, the whole "paid protester" thing is far more complicated than either side wants to admit ... kinda like every other political issue, now that we think about it.
  • REVEALED: Turkeys Plan To Camouflage Its Lobbying Activities In The US

    Daily Caller ^ | Chuck Ross
    The government of Turkey planned to use front groups and operatives camouflaged as journalists to gain access to Capitol Hill and the U.S. security apparatus, hacked emails released by WikiLeaks reveal. The documents, which are from the Gmail account of Berat Albayrak, Turkeys energy minister and the son-in-law of Turkeys president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, show the nascent plan for what has turned into a sprawling lobbying and PR campaign undertaken by the Turkish government. Turkeys lobbying efforts catapulted into the news last week after Donald Trumps short-lived national security adviser Michael Flynn registered as a foreign lobbyist for Turkey.

    One out of every 40 people in America lives in New York City. The area's population is 8.4 million, more than in 39 other states. For every vote cast for Donald Trump in the city last Tuesday, more than four were cast for Hillary Clinton; she earned 79 percent of the vote. In the wake of Trump's victory, thousands of protesters crowded the streets of Manhattan (where Trump got fewer votes than he did on Staten Island, where the population is a third smaller) outside Trump Tower. It's hard to know how many were there, but let's assume it was...

    Nearly one in 10 superdelegates who voted in the Democratic presidential primaries were registered lobbyists, according to a new report, adding some support to Bernie Sanders's claim that "the system is rigged." At least 63 of 712 superdelegates were registered at some point as lobbyists on the state or federal level, according to an analysis conducted this year by the nonpartisan, nonprofit Sunlight Foundation.

    Tara had struck gold. After spending a lazy Saturday afternoon browsing through the dating app she was currently experimenting with, she hit it off with a nice-sounding guy, and the two exchanged real names and numbers. She found herself Googling Stuart*, a Brit living in Amsterdam. He worked at a startup; he was visiting New York on business. "I was like, oh, hes kind of cute" Neither had plans that night, so they started figuring out where they could meet up for a drink. When Tara suggested a restaurant in midtown Manhattan, Stuart was into it: "Okay cool, my hotel...

    One of most dangerous areas in America has resorted to paying teenagers up to $1,300 a month as officials desperately try and stop gun crime. Gang members in Richmond, California, can also go on all expenses paid trips to New York and Washington if they are willing to travel with a rival. The programme, which is predominantly funded by taxpayers, was introduced in the city earlier this year.

    Abortion groups have been attacking The New York Times on Twitter for publishing a front-page photo of pro-life protesters outside of the U.S. Supreme Court building on Wednesday. A huge crowd of pro-life and pro-abortion protesters gathered outside of the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday as the justices heard oral arguments in a potential landmark abortion case, Whole Womans Health v. Hellerstedt. The case involves a Texas law that protects womens health and welfare by requiring abortion clinics to meet the kinds of medical and safety standards that legitimate medical centers meet. On Thursday, abortion groups including Planned Parenthood, NARAL...

    Fox News used a pollster to host a pro-Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)79% focus group after Thursday night’s Republican debate, despite the fact that the pollster actually had Rubio as a client. Pollster Frank Luntz got significant airtime to direct a post-debate focus group that unsurprisingly was very favorable to Rubio, the GOP establishment pick in the primary race.

    Do people really like Donald Trump? Like, real people? The kind who would make their own signs and T-Shirts and show up at Trump's 2016 presidential campaign launch to watch him slowly descend an escalator to the sounds of "Rockin' in the Free World"? After a day of swirling rumors, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the consulting firm Gotham Government Relations & Communications sought to hire paid actors to attend Trump's much-talked-about campaign kickoff on Tuesday morning. Trump's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, denied the allegation to the site, noting that he had never heard of Gotham GR nor the...

    Remember the protests (and riots) in Ferguson last summer? It looks like at least some of the protestors were told they would be paid to show up and now they're upset the checks haven't arrived yet. Weaselzippers has the full story and the screen shots showing "protestors" using the Twitter hashtag #cutthecheck in response to non-payment. Based on tweets, Organize Missouri is responsible for issuing payments. On May 14, protesters, upset with not being paid their promised checks for protesting, protested outside MORE, Missourians Organizing For Reform and Empowerment, an ACORN organization which had received funding through George Soros to...

    **SNIP** Disclosure documents filed by Hillary Clinton last week revealed that the couple have earned about $25 million for delivering 104 paid speeches since January 2014. While Bill Clintons lucrative speaking career since leaving the White House in 2001 has been well documented, the new disclosures offer the first public accounting of Hillary Clintons paid addresses since she stepped down as secretary of state. And they illustrate how the Clintons have personally profited by drawing on the same network of supporters who have backed their political campaigns and philanthropic efforts while those supporters have gained entree to a potential...
