  • Tucker Carlson says Trump is ‘not capable’ and hasn’t kept his promises

    Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson set straight any misinformation concerning his views on President Trump: “I don’t think he’s capable,” he said during an interview on Tuesday. Urs Gehriger, an editor at “Die Weltwoche,” the country’s leading German-language opinion weekly, noted that Carlson’s new book, “Ship of Fools,” is silent on Trump but comments on his critics. And so, Gehriger jump-started the conversation by asking what Carlson thought of Trump’s first two years in office. Carlson said he cannot stand Trump’s self-aggrandizement and boasting. Then, when asked whether Trump has kept his promises, the usually quick-witted and long-winded Carlson...
  • March 13: Robert Mueller's Beltway Coverup By using the justice system as a political weapon.....

    ROBERT MUELLER’S BELTWAY COVER-UP By using the justice system as a political weapon, Mueller and his supporters in both parties are confirming what many Americans already believe: We are not all equal under one law. Past and present FBI officials who broke the law may be seen to have the largest stake in Mueller’s investigation continuing as long as possible. The inquiry has plenty of other constituencies as well. National security hawks are rightly worried that the abuses of foreign intelligence surveillance may jeopardize programs that are designed to keep Americans safe from terrorism. For the time being, Mueller’s probe...
  • Amazon’s HQ2 Spectacle Isn’t Just Shameful—It Should Be Illegal

    The rumored announcement has emboldened Amazon’s army of critics. Did the world’s smartest company really need 13 months, and applications from 238 cities, to reach the striking conclusion that it should invest in New York and D.C.? The former is America’s heart of capital, and the latter is America’s literal capital, where chief executive Jeff Bezos already owns a house and a newspaper. Was this national auction nothing more than a scripted drama to raise the value of the inevitable winning bid? And did the retailer miss an opportunity to revitalize a midwestern city by choosing to enrich the already-rich...
  • Amazon's HQ2 Going to a City You've Never Heard of, Site Claims

    The site, founded by best-selling author/researcher Bert Sperling, claims that Amazon – a company whose stock surpassed $1 trillion in valuation earlier this month -- will put its roots down in a relatively remote area of Northern Virginia known as Oatlands. If that name doesn’t exactly ring a bell, don’t feel badly. Oatlands is a leafy, unincorporated community just outside Leesburg, Va. -- and Leesburg itself only has about 52,000 residents. “We can now confidently say that the new Amazon HQ2 will be located … in Northern Virginia near the Maryland border, in a small community that hasn’t been mentioned...

    "While Senator Sanders plays politics and makes misleading accusations, we are expending real money and effort upskilling people," Amazon said in the blog post. "No one knows what it's like to work in one of our fulfillment centers better than the skilled and dedicated people who do it every day. That's why we are encouraging all employees to take Senator Sanders up on his request and respond with their actual experience." Sanders, in a statement sent to CNBC, reiterated claims that Amazon workers are forced to rely on government programs. Amazon, he said, "has been less than forthcoming with information...

    Last week, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, wrote to Amazon.com’s Jeff Bezos , demanding that he no longer sell at Amazon any material that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) dislikes. Yes, it has come to this. Ellison’s letter to Bezos focuses on an alleged neo-Nazi’s material being sold at Amazon and published through Amazon’s self-publishing service. However, Ellison makes clear that his intentions are far more sweeping, particularly with his opening gambit: I am writing to you with my concerns about the amount of money Amazon has made from the sale...

    Amazon originally started out many years ago selling books online. But owner Jeff Bezos has aggressively led it to now selling everything online, making Bezos one of the richest men in world history. Bezos's corporate empire includes Amazon Web Services (AWS), a leading pioneer of cloud computing services. Cloud computing enables anyone in an organization worldwide to access the organization’s documents and data online. That enables the organization’s employees to collaborate and communicate online, from anywhere in the world. America’s Defense Department is now trying to catch up to the world’s leading multinational companies to adopt cloud computing for America’s...

    Well this is my 2nd installment in my legal battle of legendary titans: The showdown between me and Jeffrey Bozos. Just as a matter of record, are you aware that Mr. Bozos made something like 40 billion dollar last year. And I come along and asked for a paltry, measly, infinitesimally small teeny weeny, baby amount of a mere 600 dollars for their negligence and another about 4,000 for the poor business practices and he's not willing to part with a dime. Hmm, let's see. I'm not good with math but 40 billion minus 4,950 dollars = well, he's got...

    I am currently suing Jeff Bezos and Amazon. because they really do have, without a doubt, the worst customer service on all known planets. A culture of lying among a confederacy of dunces. I made the mistake of buying 6-100 dollar amazon gift cards to give out as presents. alas they were stolen out of my car. So I quickly contacted Amazon so the could cancel the gift cards so the thieves wouldn't have time to use them. What did I get from Amazon's customer service? It was like we were all back in the cold war and I was...

    Kshama Sawant’s rally “March on Amazon! Tax Big Biz to Build Affordable Housing!” was planned well before a committee passed a head tax on big businesses, including Amazon. The full Seattle City Council is expected to vote on the proposal on Monday. ”Our message today for the council is to stay strong,” Kshama Sawant – one of the most vocal proponents of the tax – told KTTH’s Jason Rantz at the rally. The rally on Saturday began at Seattle Central College Plaza and preceded a march to Amazon’s headquarters in South Lake Union. This is extortion,” the events Facebook page...

    Amazon.com has removed a Catholic group from its donation feature. The AmazonSmile Participation Agreement states that certain categories of organizations are not eligible to participate in AmazonSmile. We rely on the Southern Poverty Law Center to determine which charities are in certain ineligible categories. You have been excluded from the AmazonSmile program because the Southern Poverty Law Center lists Saint Benedict Center Inc in an ineligible category.
  • Israeli intelligence reportedly says Trump's Syria strike failed, didn't take out much of anything

    Israeli officials cited in a Ynetnews report characterized the missile strike on Friday by the US, the UK, and France on suspected chemical weapons facilities in Syria as a failure. Multiple Israeli government and military sources suggested the strike was not effective in hurting Syria's ability to conduct chemical attacks. These officials also criticized President Donald Trump's talking about the strike beforehand. The latest strike most likely didn't change anything on the battlefield in Syria, and it's hard to know how much of the chemical weapons stockpile it hit.

    Critics might be right that President Trump is more interested in attacking the Washington Post than the Amazon/U.S. Postal Service shipping deal. But Trump is right that the deal is a bad one for the Postal Service and for U.S. taxpayers.As I wrote last September, Amazon has a deal with the Postal Service to handle the last mile of delivery for its packages. Even though Amazon presorts most of the packages and prepares them for delivery at its depots, the Postal Service has continued to improperly allocate its costs, which has resulted in undercharging Amazon for delivery of those packages by...

    President Donald Trump denounced the Washington Post in a Sunday Twitter post, criticizing a story about his chief of staff, General John Kelly. “The Washington Post is far more fiction than fact. Story after story is made up garbage—more like a poorly written novel than good reporting,” Trump wrote on Twitter. The Washington Post reported that Kelly was experiencing a “downward arc” of influence in the White House while Trump was breaking free of his effort to instill more discipline. The story cited sixteen anonymous sources who were inside the White House, outside advisers, and confidants of the president. “Always...

    He bet a quarter billion on something maybe worth 60 Million, to bully, damage, and hopefully to destroy this president, and paid $18 billion for it. Who is laughing now? Bezos, a virulent Trump hater, used the Washington Post, a paper of repute at one time, to perform regular, predictable and malevolent daily blitzkriegs on the candidacy, and after he was elected, on the presidency of the man We, the People, elected to the nation’s highest office, his family, his associates, his policies, and his ideas. In other words, Bezos and the Washington Post colluded, cooperated and conspired with the...

    Fielding questions over whether President Trump wants to go after Amazon and it's tax treatment, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday that Trump is "always looking to create a level playing field for all businesses and this no different." But she added that the president has no specific policies to address that at this time. The backdrop: Axios' Jonathan Swan reported earlier today that Trump hates Amazon, which led Amazon shares to drop 6% at market open.

    Four recent news stories caused me to think about the current political environment, and how we increasingly reframe news to fit our ideological understanding of the world. It seems that more and more, information means something totally different to people depending on their outlook – to the point that people with differing political positions can appear to be living in alternate realities. Consider how some might react to these four unrelated, recent events: 1. The Daily Caller reported on March 15 that 2 million Americans got off food stamps in President Trump’s first year. Citing a recent assessment by the...

    European regulators are clamping down on Silicon Valley companies because they are “jealous” of the success of the technology industry in the US, according to PayPal co-founder and investor Peter Thiel. Speaking about the looming threat of regulation for these companies, Thiel said that the “threat is probably greater in Europe” and there are “good reasons and bad reasons”. “The good reasons are these privacy concerns and the bad reasons are there are no successful tech companies in Europe and they are jealous of the US so they are punishing us,” he said at the Economic Club of New York...
