  • If We Silence Hate Speech, Will We Silence Resistance?

    The Failing New York Times ^ | 8/9/2018 | Erik Nielson
    “Hate” is a dangerously elastic label. And it has long been used to demonize unpopular expression, particularly among people of color. Apple, Facebook, YouTube, Spotify and most other major internet distributors took a bold step this week when they all but banned content from Infowars, a website run by the right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. The tech companies cited their policies against hate speech for their decision, rather than the trafficking in fake news by Infowars. It’s tempting to applaud this move, but we should be wary. While Mr. Jones’s rhetoric is certainly repugnant, mounting pressure from the political left...

    President Trump on Friday called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to keep the upper chamber in session until hundreds of pending nominees are confirmed. “The only things the Democrats do well is ‘Resist,’ which is their campaign slogan, and ‘Obstruct.’ Cryin’ Chuck Schumer has almost 400 great American people that are waiting ‘forever’ to serve our Country! A total disgrace. Mitch M should not let them go home until all approved!” Trump tweeted Friday.

  • Tin Foil Dan Rather's Theory: LeBron Went to Lakers to ‘Resist’ Trump

    Newsbusters ^ | 7/03/18 | Scott Whitlock
    Eighty-six-year-old liberal journalist Dan Rather seems to be getting more conspiratorial as he ages. The disgraced ex-CBS Evening News anchor on Monday speculated that the reason NBA star LeBron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Los Angeles Lakers is to... fight Donald Trump. It’s true that James is liberal, but one respondent on Twitter perhaps summed up how odd Rather’s conspiracy theory is: “I dunno. I think he went there to play basketball for the Lakers.” Rather wasn’t done offering deep thoughts on Monday. Later in the day, he linked the summer heat to global warming.

    A funny thing is happening in America. Perhaps you’ve noticed. Black Lives Matter isn’t celebrating murderous thugs or trumping up charges of police brutality, thereby giving rioters an excuse to burn down neighborhoods. The goons of antifa have stopped their riots and their rages (mostly). The harpies of the Women’s March have realized they aren’t—unfortunately, right?!—being forced into dystopian gulags like “The Handmaid’s Tale” promised they would be. In fact, the only damage The Resistance is doing (minus the daily destruction and obstruction that occurs in the media and on college campuses) seems to be by forcing Starbucks into turning...
  • Resist too far? Pelosi tries to tamp down progressives' public shaming of Trump officials

    Los Angeles Times ^ | 26 June 2028 | Sarah D. Wire
    The recent public shaming of Trump administration officials in restaurants has triggered an internal debate among Democrats over how far they should go in confronting the president and his policies. The boisterous protests against Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Trump advisor Stephen Miller as they dined in different Mexican restaurants, and the ejection of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders by the owner of a Virginia eatery, caused some Democrats to embrace the strategy as an effective way to rally supporters and hold officials responsible. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Los Angeles), a frequent critic of the administration, gave a...

    Dear America, the societal left has declared war on you.While you’ve been busy enjoying your new jobs, improved wages, lower taxes, and less government interference in your life the left has decided that all of those things are immoral. They must be undone. And those who enjoy them must be made to understand that they are not good American citizens, but some sort of participant to hurt others. They would love to say it makes you a racist, except that African Americans and Hispanics are enjoying the best economy they’ve ever known in American history. They would love to say...

    One of the activists who chased Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen out of a Mexican restaurant Tuesday night over the Trump administration’s immigration policies is an employee of the Department of Justice, The Daily Caller News Foundation has confirmed. Members of the Washington, D.C., chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America crashed Nielsen’s meal with a demonstration full of chants and other outbursts. One of those participants, Allison Hrabar, actually works for the Trump administration — as a paralegal in the DOJ.

    Billionaire Tom Steyer wants to impeach President Donald Trump — and he’s bringing his case to Denver. Steyer, a Californian who spent millions backing select Democrats in the 2016 elections, will host a town hall at Mile High Station May 16 — part of a series of similar events that his campaign, Need to Impeach, has hosted nationwide since March. The town halls attempt to “make the patriotic case to Democrats, Independents and Republicans about the need for impeaching Trump,” according to a Wednesday press release from the campaign. “According to a recent Quinnipiac poll, 70 percent of Democrats support...

    Ross Gerber is a fund manager at Gerber Kawasaki. According to their webpage, they have over $650 Million in assets under management. Given Gerber's recent comments on social media, one must wonder if he has any Trump supporters as clients. In a now-deleted Tweet, Ross Gerber Tweeted from the official, verified @GerberKawasaki account: "If you are hosting or attending the Trump fundraiser in LA we will identify who you are to the media and public. We will boycott your business'." Mr. Gerber of course has every First Amendment right to dox and boycott people. However, as a fund manager, he...

    Most associate the term "radicalized" with ISIS.  But radical movements aren't limited to a religion.  A jihad is a crusade for a principle or belief involving struggle" and "resistance."  The Washington establishment, the Deep State, and special interests have launched their own jihad, built on a battle cry to "resist."   Today, calls to "resist!" echo through Congress as half of the House and Senate stage a mutiny against a duly elected president. "Resist!" is the call to arms from Democrat leaders (Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama) and radical activist groups (Black Lives Matter, Antifa).   More than 50 organizations have formed to "resist!"...

    This is truly a heartbreaking tale. You should probably keep a tissue handy.Out in California, one of many groups which have sprung up promising to help the left #RESIST Donald Trump has some questions to answer. The Democratic Coalition (which is a totally super, patriotic name) was promising in 2016 to bring in big dollars and channel them into “making sure Donald Trump was never elected president.” Last year, after that effort fell flat, they continued to fundraise, promising to fight President Trump at every turn. There’s a big audience out there with a healthy appetite for such action,...

    Over the past several years, political movements have been a dime a dozen. After the economy crashed in 2008, we saw the rise of the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street. Those two movements eventually petered out, but that made room for the overwhelming torrent of political movements that sprang up both before and after Trump’s election. On the right, there are anti-immigration movements, pro-life movements and movements based on patriotism and the support of Western values. On the left, there is Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Democratic Socialism, 3rd Wave Feminism, BAMN and a plethora of other lesser known political...

    For those who think California politics is on the far-left fringe of the national spectrum, stand by. The next election season, already well underway here, will showcase a younger generation of Democrats that is more liberal and personally invested in standing up to President Trump’s Washington than those leaving office. Here in the self-labeled “state of resistance,” the political debate is being pushed further left without any sign of a Republican renaissance to serve as a check on spending and social policy ambitions. Even some Republicans are concerned about the departure of Gov. Jerry Brown (D), who proved to be...

    Residents to get $500 a month, no questions asked, as starting point The mayor of Stockton, California, is leading an experiment with “universal basic income,” which is set to start by giving low-income residents $500 a month, no questions asked. Mayor Michael Tubbs calls his city “ground zero” for issues like wage stagnation, rising housing prices and loss of middle-class jobs that affect the nation. The Central Valley city went bankrupt in 2012, and for decades it has been trying to diversify its agriculture-based economy. “I feel that as mayor it’s my responsibility to do all I could to begin...

    "My fury has been bottomless. I drink my morning coffee from a cup that says, "I hate to wake up when Donald Trump is President." The constancy of my outrage has been exhausting, yet I have not yet found a way to quell it — nearly each day has brought a new reason to stoke the fire. But a day with my daughter, communing with the angry and the aggrieved, seemed a good way to try."

    That is the provocative hypothesis put forward by Danial Greenfield at Sultan Knish. On its face it sounds hyperbolic, but Greenfield makes a rather sober case. You should read it all, but this will give you some of the flavor: How do civil wars happen? Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge. That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have...

    Full title: Gregg Jarrett: How an FBI official with a political agenda corrupted both Mueller, Comey investigationsHow is it possible that Hillary Clinton escaped criminal indictment for mishandling classified documents despite incriminating evidence that she violated the Espionage Act? Why did Donald Trump become the target of a criminal investigation for allegedly conspiring with Russia to influence the presidential election despite no evidence that he ever did so? The answer, it seems, comes down to one person who played a vital role in both cases: Peter Strzok, deputy director of counterintelligence at the FBI. Strzok was exchanging politically charged texts...
