  • Robinhood Has Lured Young Traders, Sometimes With Devastating Results

    Richard Dobatse, a Navy medic in San Diego, dabbled infrequently in stock trading. But his behavior changed in 2017 when he signed up for Robinhood, a trading app that made buying and selling stocks simple and seemingly free. Mr. Dobatse, now 32, said he had been charmed by Robinhood’s one-click trading, easy access to complex investment products, and features like falling confetti and emoji-filled phone notifications that made it feel like a game. After funding his account with $15,000 in credit card advances, he began spending more time on the app. As he repeatedly lost money, Mr. Dobatse took out...

    There have been no new COVID-19 cases linked to recent large Black Lives Matter protests in British Columbia, says the province’s top doctor. In a news conference Monday, Dr. Bonnie Henry said there was no spike in cases following the demonstrations, contrary to many predictions.. “Currently we do not have any cases that have been associated with the protests,” Henry said.
  • Why Do So Many White Women Hate Themselves? Amid societal unrest, woke white women are proving to be a brainwashed force to be reckoned with.

    Some might find it odd that so many seemingly middle-class, young, white women are taking up street theater with a vengeance. We’ve seen the woke white woman spitting harangues into the faces of police officers, including black officers, trying to lecture and shame them into obedience. Two women are screaming at the cops outside the White House.— Julio Rosas (@Julio_Rosas11) June 23, 2020 We saw many of them acting up in the “autonomous zone” of CHAZ or CHOP in Seattle, condescendingly guarding a “blacks only” area. We’ve also seen these women physically attacking those they deem the enemy,...
  • Who Can the American People Trust?

    07/09/2020 8:43:51 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | July 9, 2020 | Armstrong Williams
    It certainly doesn't seem like we can put faith in the media or political parties, and, unfortunately, a growing number of Americans say that they no longer trust each other either. In a world that is as divided and self-righteous as ours is currently, this should come as no surprise. This level of division offers opportunities for our adversaries to cause strife around the globe that, under normal circumstances, would warrant a U.S. response that now might be impossible as a result of our national division. Furthermore, it seems to be allowing domestic militant and extremist groups to incite racial...

    “When you put somebody’s name in print in a book, you want to make sure the facts around it are correct, especially if they are not living because it’s not like Joe is here and he would have known how to deal with this.” President Donald Trump’s estranged niece Mary claimed he paid his old friend Joe Shapiro to take his SAT test. Pam Shriver, a former tennis pro and Shapiro’s widow, hit back at Mary’s accusations. The widow of the man who Mary Trump alleges took the SAT test for @realDonaldTrump says her husband didn't meet Donald Trump until...

    It is not my intent to be cryptic; but at a time of consequence, it is necessary. That said, the roots of CTH are deep, strong and enduring. Nothing here will change; this is your refuge and I tend to it as a happy steward. That is important to me. Before going further, I know there are questions. Perhaps my sharing a recent communication is a familiar transparency you have come to expect; perhaps also it will answer some questions… or at the least, begin the conversation: Good afternoon XXXXXX, and thank you for reaching out. I am working right...

    Ann Coulter Dot Com ^ | 8 July 2020 | Ann Coulter
    Fascinating news from The New York Times this week! Reviewing its op-ed titled “I’m a Direct Descendant of Thomas Jefferson. Take Down His Memorial,” I gather we now weigh Americans’ opinions based on who their ancestors are. I’m not sure that’s a good idea, but the rules are the rules. Otherwise, why would the Times consider it so important to publish Lucian Truscott, a great-great-great-great-great-grandson of Jefferson, at all? Blut uber alles! Obviously, we’re going to need a list of Whose Opinion Matters. Here’s my first stab at it: Descendants of John Adams will have their views count the most....

    CIA Involvement in the Creation of the Russia Hack and Seth Rich Cover-up is now the focus of Group requesting the truth behind Trump-Russia collusion sham. In June 2016, Ellen Nakashima, a Deep State favorite from the Washington Post, released a report that the Democrat National Committee (DNC) had been hacked by Russia. The firm that validated this was Crowdstrike and its President Shawn Henry confirmed the claims. In December 2016, Ms. Nakashima followed up her reporting with the outlandish claim that the CIA had determined that Russia hacked the DNC because Russia wanted Trump to win the election. Nakashima...

    “If Trump is nominated, the GOP must keep him out of the White House,” Tommy Tuberville’s senior adviser Rob Jesmer Tweeted, in a series of anti-Trump, pro-amnesty Tweets going back years. An investigation into Tuberville staff shows hostility towards Trump’s agenda and trump’s supporters. Jesmer is Tuberville’s media adviser and is rumored to be in contention for the coveted chief of staff position in an Tuberville administration. Jesmer will be calling the shots on immigration. What’s interest about this Tweet is that Jesmer added the picture himself. Often times an image will auto-populate when you post a URL link. Jesmer...
  • GOP Group with McConnell’s Blessing is Spending $2 Million Against Pro-Trump Senatorial Candidate Kris Kobach in Kansas

    GP ^ | July 7, 2020 at 5:45pm | Jim Hoft
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is working to defeat Trump favorite Kris Kobach in Kansas. A RINO group “Plains PAC” is spending $2 million in the primary against pro-Trump Republican Kris Kobach. They will run ads against Kobach accusing him of ties with white nationalists. This is a disgusting tactic coming from open border Republicans. Kobach was with Donald Trump in the 2016 campaign and has advised him throughout his presidency. McConnell and his DC cronies are supporting an anti-Trump RINO Roger Marshall who mocked President Trump and his border wall.

    Israel request to buy 990 million gallons of diesel, gasoline and jet fuel from United States The Government of Israel has requested to buy approximately 990 million gallons of diesel, gasoline and jet fuel, the U.S. Defense Security Cooperation Agency said on Monday in an official notification to Congress. According to a recent service notification, the State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Israel of approximately 990 million gallons of Petroleum-based products for an estimated cost of $3 billion. ”The proposed sale of the JP-8 aviation fuel will enable Israel to...

    Commentary ^ | 7 July 2020 | Abe Greenwald
    Back in our cheery, prelapsarian days—2016, to be exact—a young and photogenic NFL quarterback named Colin Kaepernick chose to express his patriotism by kneeling whenever the National Anthem was played before football games. He kneeled, you see, merely to protest police mistreatment of African Americans. And we knew that Kaepernick actually loved America because he told us so . “I’m not anti-America,” he said. “I love America…. I think having these conversations helps everybody have a better understanding of where everybody is coming from.” And everyone bought it. Oh, how they loved to love Kaepernick’s love. “Colin Kaepernick Reminds Us...

    The ancestral homeland of most < a href="">(black Americans is West Africa). Other parts of Africa—Angola and East Africa—were caught up in the great Atlantic slave trade that carried Africans to the New World from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries. But West Africa was the center of the trade in human beings. Knowing the history of West Africa therefore is important for understanding the people who became the first African Americans.That history, however, is best understood within the larger context of the history and geography of the African continent. This chapter begins, therefore, with a survey of the larger...
  • Black Lives Matter Leader Toronto Believes White People are Subhuman, Calls Them ‘Genetic Defects’ – Begs ‘Allah’ to Help Her ‘Not Kill White Folks’

    Old social media posts written by Black Lives Matter co-founder Toronto Yusra Khogali are making the rounds this week. Yusra Khogali in 2016 wrote “white people are a genetic defect of blackness” in a since-deleted Facebook post. “Whiteness is not humxness,” Khogali wrote in a Facebook post. “in fact, white skin is sub-humxn.” “White ppl are recessive genetic defects. this is factual,” she said. “white ppl need white supremacy as a mechanism to protect their survival as a people because all they can do is produce themselves. black ppl simply through their dominant genes can literally wipe out the white...

    Whose job is it to explain to my children that their white skin makes them bad? Is that me? Or do I leave it to the evening news, the NFL, Nike, the Democratic Party and the college professors? Who is to teach white children how to deal with and submit to the shame into which they were born? If the sins of the fathers are to be visited upon the heads of the children, how do you get white kids woke to the inescapable burden of lifelong guilt they bear by virtue of their skin color? How do you keep...
  • Brian Williams Hears a Whiff (of Racist COVID Victim-Shaming)

    If only Dr. Seuss were still with us, he could write a sequel to "Horton Hears a Who," entitled "Brian Hears a Whiff." On MSNBC this afternoon, Brian Williams, after claiming that the government always mentions co-morbidities when discussing COVID-19 deaths among black Americans, wondered: "Am I alone in hearing at least a whiff of victim-shaming?"[snip] So just as Horton the elephant could perceive the residents of Whoville on a tiny speck of dusk, so the exquisitely attuned Brian Williams can perceive racist victim-shaming that less sensitive souls might not see. Question: how does Williams manage to "hear" a "whiff?"...

    The American Mind ^ | 07/06/20 | Inez Feltscher Stepman
    “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be,” quipped Thomas Jefferson, one of the principal advocates for then-controversial public education. The American public school system was born, not from the need for a highly-trained workforce, but from this seed of purpose. Man may be born with natural rights, but it takes education to teach him to be a responsible, self-governing citizen of a republic. By this fundamental measure, America’s public system, even before the virus upended schools across the nation, is a dismal failure. Out...

    What is new about the nationwide riots of the last week that have followed the death of George Floyd is the convergence of these two previously separate streams—traditional urban riots in poor neighborhoods triggered by police-related incidents, and the ideologically motivated vandalism by young white members of the overclass in downtown districts. This convergence is the result of hub city gentrification. The deindustrialization of the cities and rising real estate prices have forced most of the working class of all races out of hub cities into low-income suburbs and exurbs. The children of the white urban elite—some of them downwardly...

    A couple in Martinez, California, peacefully painted over the city-sanctioned giant yellow “Black Lives Matter” lettering in the middle of the road on the Fourth of July. Police are now looking for the couple, likely harder than they are searching for the terrorists who ripped down statues, looted shops, and destroyed large chunks of cities across the nation.
