    As a member of the Seattle City Council, she's had an outsized influence on the nation, leading the charge for a $15 minimum wage. Now, with the passage of her so-called "Amazon Tax," the Socialist Alternative party member, Kshama Sawant, is making it clear that her legislative measures are only part of a much larger agenda. Calling the passage Tuesday of a more than $200 million tax on top of the 3% city tax on corporations "a historic victory for working people," she warned Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos "and his class" that she and her allies are "preparing the ground...
  • Amazon Just Screwed Some Of Its Third-Party Sellers [Vanity]

    What is being lost in the weeds is the effect of Amazon's ban of Redskins merchandise on its Mom and Pop third-party sellers. How many of these sellers are just small-time operators barely getting by? How many placed orders with manufacturers and paid for merchandise in advance of the anticipated season? And, this before the name Redskins became a pariah? I think there there is a high probability given that the Redskins are [were] a top-selling brand. I agree that Amazon has the right to ban the merchandise, as any private entity can. However, I believe that the Mom and...

    Seattle city councilmember Kshama Sawant had a personal message for billionaire Jeff Bezos after the passage of the so-called Amazon tax, warning him that “we are coming for you.” The avowed socialist framed Monday’s 7-2 council vote for the hefty payroll tax on larger businesses as a step toward the goal of overthrowing the “bankrupt system of capitalism” and replacing it with “a socialist world.” “And if you, Jeff Bezos, want to drive that process forward by lashing out against us in our modest demands, then so be it,” she said in a video address that was posted Tuesday on...

    s New York City suffers an economic crisis on top of the coronavirus pandemic, some are looking back with regrets at the left-wing campaign that forced Amazon to scupper a plan to bring tens of thousands of jobs to the area – arguing this project could have helped the Big Apple weather the storm. “At this time when coronavirus is ravaging incomes across New York, wouldn’t it be nice if the city and state at least knew that one of the world’s largest companies, one of the rare concerns positioned to thrive through the crisis, had made a long-term commitment...

    Of America’s most powerful and prominent cultural institutions, it’s quick work naming those that aren’t entirely left-wing satrapies. TV? Fox News, although things are looking less and less encouraging there. Colleges? Hillsdale, I guess, though how many Ivy League faculty members would ever admit to having heard of it? Newspapers? The New York Post (sometimes), Wall Street Journal (kind of), and perhaps one or two others from sea to shining sea. Silicon Valley? Nothing. Hollywood? ˇNada! Big business? Hmm: what is there, nowadays, honestly, other than that My Pillow guy? One field in which there’s at least a soupçon...

    Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder announced yesterday that his team is conducting a “thorough review” into the team’s nickname that formalizes the discussions the team has been having with the National Football League about a name change. Snyder has resisted changing the name of the team, outlasting protests, lawsuits, and demonstrations. But there’s no escaping the mob this time. They want another scalp to hang on their lodgepole and can smell victory in the wind...

    SEATTLE, WA - The Seattle City Council has taken a key step toward adopting a new tax on big businesses just two years after the council buckled under pressure from corporations such as Amazon and the prospect of a voter referendum and repealed a big business tax. The council voted in a budget committee meeting Wednesday to advance a proposal expected to raise more than $200 million per year, The Seattle Times reported. A final vote by the full council is set for Monday. The tax repealed weeks after it was adopted two years ago was expected to raise $47...

    Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy have set their sights on creating another expansive sci-fi series. The “Westworld” duo are developing a show at Amazon based on the “Fallout” video game franchise. Their Kilter Films banner is producing the project which has a series commitment penalty attached, meaning it would go directly to series if Amazon execs are on board with the scripts. The “Fallout” series, which began in 1997 with the original game, is set in a world where the future envisioned by Americans in the late 1940s explodes upon itself through a nuclear war in 2077. With their...
