  • New Veritas Video (#2) Exposes Far Left's Plan to Use Violence and Terrorism During Inauguration

    Mrc TV ^ | 1/17/27
    As if yesterday’s Project Veritas video wasn’t enough to prove just how crazy the left is over the election of President-elect Donald Trump, James O’Keefe's organization has come out with the second part of their undercover series on the inner-workings of the organizations planning to disrupt Trump inauguration on Friday. O’Keefe begins his video by talking about a group known as DisruptJ20. J20 stands for Jan. 20, which is the date of the inauguration. It’s as if these yo-yos think that by shortening the date to J20, all of the non-hipsters won’t catch onto them. The video shows how these...

    AS EXPECTED, the European Parliament's legal affairs committee voted in favour of extending rights to robots, granting them what the committee called "electronic personhood", by 17 votes to two, with two abstentions. The robot 'bill of rights' is intended to cover such issues as liability, such as when automated or robotic systems are involved in accidents or go postal, as well as ethical issues, such as should it be legal to beat your robot? Socialist worker Mady Delvaux, a Luxembourgois politician and vice-chair of the Committee on Legal Affairs, said that the EU "urgently need(s) to create a robust European...

The European Union member, and native country of Soros, will use "all the tools at its disposal" to “sweep out” NGOs funded by the Hungarian-born financier, which “serve global capitalists and back political correctness over national governments,” Szilard Nemeth, a vice president of the ruling Fidesz party, told reporters on Tuesday.

    Seattle’s only Socialist council member is using government resources to promote an anti-Trump event on Inauguration Day. Kshama Sawant wrote a letter Seattle residents as 2016 came to a close that urged them to resist “right-wing anti-worker bigot” President-elect Donald Trump. A 10-paragraph screed against the billionaire ends with a link to “Resist Trump: Occupy Inauguration — Seattle!” on Facebook. Nearly 9,000 people have seen the event and 3,000 have committed to attend. “Thank you for making 2016 a year to remember. When we fight, we win!” the Dec. 31 letter reads. “We cannot, as Hillary Clinton suggested, ‘give Trump...

That's the ever-outspoken Harry Reid, Nevada's retiring senior senator, talking about Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders being the unofficial early front-runners for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. Warren, at 67, is the youngest of the Big Three, and she's the only one who excites both establishment Democrats and progressive activists. But is the senior senator from Massachusetts game for a presidential run? Some pundits believe she's already positioning herself for it. Warren, the former guiding light of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, recently announced she's joining the Senate's...

    Many people, especially liberals, were surprised that Trump won the election. The surprising thing for me was that so many people were so surprised. What, do liberals actually believe their own lying media? That is shocking. The media have an approval rating below 20%. Surely anyone confronting this stat must conclude that the media are hopelessly incompetent and/or crooked. The New York Times went way off the deep end, announcing a few months ago that defeating Trump was more important than telling the truth. So they had to send a post-election apology to their readers: we're sorry, we'll try to...

    Spain’s minority conservative government on Friday approved raising the country’s minimum monthly wage by 8.0 percent in 2017 to €825.50 ($876) as demanded by the main opposition Socialists. Finance Minister Cristobal Montoro said the rise — approved at a weekly cabinet meeting — was “negotiated with other political groups”. The minimum wage will rise from €764.40 to €825.50, an increase of €61.10. That is higher than the monthly minimum wage of €618 in neighboring Portugal, but far lower than the minimum wage of €1,467 in France. …

    Donald Trump winning the presidency based on his promise to torpedo globalism came exactly 27 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and represents the second leg down for “World Socialism.” Although U.S. history books declare capitalist United States the victor in World War II, it was World Socialism that ended up dominating most of the globe. Soviet Union and China carved out massive communist states, India adopted extreme socialism, and communist insurgencies were ascendant in Southeast Asia, Africa and South America.

Around 5 million households would benefit from the €1 billion ($1.1 billion) reduction in income taxes, worth about €200 per family. …

    This Labor Day, America has 83,000 fewer coal jobs and 400 coal mines than it did when Barack Obama was elected in 2008, showing that the president has followed through on his pledge to “bankrupt” the coal industry. A 2015 study found the coal industry lost 50,000 jobs from 2008 to 2012 during Obama’s first term. During Obama’s second term, the industry employment in coal mining has fallen by another 33,300 jobs, 10,900 of which occurred in the last year alone, according to federal data. Currently, coal mining employs 69,460 Americans, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Much of...

As David Horowitz tweeted during the speech, Clinton's problem is that "most Americans know exactly what to make of her. This speech is so empty." But Hillary gave the audience members what they wanted. It was a stroll through a liberal-progressive fantasy land, a place where money materializes out of thin air.

    A new decree by Venezuela's government could make its citizens work on farms to tackle the country's severe food shortages. That "effectively amounts to forced labor," according to Amnesty International, which derided the decree as "unlawful." In a vaguely-worded decree, Venezuelan officials indicated that public and private sector employees could be forced to work in the country's fields for at least 60-day periods, which may be extended "if circumstances merit."

    Mark Levin and others are pressuring the state legislatures to call for a "Constitutional Convention," or "Convention of States," or "Assembly of States." Doesn't matter which name you use, it's all the same thing. It is an effort not to amend our Constitution, but to change it significantly, or to replace it entirely. Here's how: The authorization for amending or changing the Constitution of the United States is found in Article V of the US Constitution. It is very short. Only one sentence. In fact, only the first two lines of that sentence are important, because in them, the Founding...

    Swedish Left Party politician Barbro Sörman has suggested that it’s “worse” when Swedish men rape women, than when immigrants do so. “The Swedish men who rape do it despite the growing gender equality. They make an active choice. It’s worse imo [in my opinion],” Sörman tweeted. Sörman, a self-described socialist and a feminist, made the observation in response to what she claimed was excessive media focus on the fact that most of the rapes in Sweden are committed by immigrants. She explained that Swedish men are brought up in a society that believes in gender equality and therefore should be...

    It's all about wedge-issues and fundraising. Before we start talking about the left-wing hissy fit unfolding in the House of Representatives, you need to keep something in mind. This is an election year. Democrats need four things: 1. They need to further their 100 year old agenda of banning guns. 2. They need to blame guns for their failure to deal with radical Islam. 3. They need a 2016 wedge issue. 4. They need - desperately - a massive pile of the political cash they claim to hate.

    Pope Francis is very popular around the world, but there are growing signs that his popularity is dwindling in his own country, Argentina. And there are good reasons for it. When former archbishop of the Argentine capital of Buenos Aires Jorge Bergoglio was chosen pope of the Roman Catholic Church in 2013, there were massive celebrations in Argentina. He was the first Latin American pope, and a respected priest in Argentina, where he was known to be at odds with the corrupt populist government of former President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. Once in the Vatican, Francis’ frequent calls to Argentine...

    While verbal and physical attacks against churches and religious leaders accumulate in the heated election climate in Spain, Pope Francis will meet Pablo Iglesias, the current irrepressible leader of the radical left Spain in September. With this meeting Pope Francis continues his unilateral contacts with representatives of the radical left. Acts of vandalism against churches and religious institutions, but also verbal attacks against high church officials, have characterized the time before the early Spanish general elections which are to take place on 26 June. One of the most prominent victims of the attacks is Antonio Cardinal Cañizares, Archbishop of Valencia...
