  • Elon Blows Apart Liberal Myth on Ferguson, Makes It Even Better With Big Vow for Twitter

    I wrote about how Elon Musk discovered “Stay Woke” t-shirts in a Twitter closet as he continues to sort out things at the headquarters. That says so much about the liberal nature of the platform before Musk. Musk also noted that the shirts go back to the time of the shooting of Michael Brown and the protests/riots in Ferguson. He also linked to the report of the Obama DOJ, noting that the shooting was in self-defense. That set off people on the left even more because they had to deal with the reality that their beliefs that they may have...

    It’s time to stop calling them Democrats.This is no longer the party of FDR, JFK, or even Bill Clinton, and it’s time to start calling a spade a spade..***.One of the stated goals of communism, from the Congressional Record in 1963, was to take over one or both political parties from within..They’ve succeeded..***.We’ve been conditioned to believe that communism is just a myth, that it isn’t real, or even if it is real, it only exists in faraway places like China …..But let’s review a few basics: They’re raiding and jailing their political opponents. They’re turning the FBI, CIA, and...

    Kamala Harris' niece has told how her partner gave up his high-flying tech job in San Francisco to be a stay-at-home father to their two daughters, and free her to write feminist children's books and run her business. Meena Harris, 36, told The Times how Nikolas Ajagu, who she met while working in the tech industry, decided he wanted to be a full-time father to Amara, four, and two-year-old Leela. Ajagu left his job as the Global Head of Partnerships at Facebook to raise their children, she told the paper. It was unclear if he has since returned: his LinkedIn...

    Revealed: Chinese Communist org bankrolls Black Lives Matter org started by Marxist founder Black Futures Lab is linked to the Chinese Progressive Association, a longtime promoter of the Communist government. September 18, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – While the mainstream media frames Black Lives Matter (BLM) as merely a rational response to discrimination and police brutality, the movement is actually involved in a litany of radical causes … for which it enjoys the backing of equally radical organizations. The Daily Signal reported that the Black Futures Lab, an activist group started by BLM founder Alicia Garza, identifies itself as a “fiscally sponsored project...

    Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution Thursday condemning terms such as “Chinese virus” used to describe the coronavirus as a form of “anti-Asian sentiment,” the Blaze reported. “It passed in a mostly party-line vote of 243 to 163 with 14 Republicans voting with the Democratic majority in favor,” the outlet stated. However, all other Republicans voted against the resolution.

    On February 26, 2018, Black Lives Matter cofounder Alicia Garza launched the Black Futures Fund, which discloses on its donations page that “Black Futures Lab is a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association”. The CPA, active in areas such as San Francisco and Boston, has long and deep ties to Chinese Maoist activity in the United States. Cofounder and board chair emeritus Pam Tau Lee was active during her student days at Cal State Hayward and Berkeley with the I Wor Kuen, a Chinese Maoist counterpart of the Black Panthers which merged with the Red Guard Party, a...

    The Black Futures Lab, a venture of Black Lives Matter founder Alicia Garza, is sponsored by the Chinese Progressive Association (CPA), an organization that works with China’s communist government to push its agenda in the United States, according to an investigation by the Heritage Foundation’s Mike Gonzalez. Gonzalez discovered that the Black Futures Lab donation page explicitly states they are “a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association,” explaining where donations to Black Futures Lab are funneled.

    Journal of Accountancy ^ | September 2, 2016 | Alistair M. Nevius, J.D.
    The IRS warned tax practitioners on Friday of a new wave of cyberattacks that allow criminals to remotely access practitioners' computers and file fraudulent tax returns. The attacks come as practitioners prepare for the Oct. 17 extended filing deadline for individual returns; the IRS reported similar attacks before the April 15 deadline. The IRS says that the attacks allow thieves to take control of practitioners' computers, access client data, and complete and e-file tax returns, directing the resulting refunds into the criminals' own accounts. Victims become aware of the attacks when reconciling e-filing acknowledgments.

    Inside Iraqi Corruption Charles R. Smith Tuesday, March 29, 2005 John A. Shaw is a curious example of Washington politics gone mad.

In 2001, Shaw was appointed by Bush Defense Secretary Don Rumsfeld to head the newly formed Office of International Technology Security.

    In a stunning blow to the Internal Revenue Service’s efforts to regulate the tax preparation profession, a federal judge struck down the IRS’s licensing requirements for tax preparers on Friday, including testing and continuing education. U.S. District Court Judge James E. Boasberg ruled against the IRS and in favor of the tax preparers in enjoining the agency against enforcing its Registered Tax Return Preparer requirements. “Today’s ruling is a victory for hundreds of thousands of tax preparers across the country and the tens of millions of taxpayers who rely on them to prepare their taxes,” said lead attorney Dan Alban....

    The people of South Kordofan have become caught up in the unresolved contradiction of the post-John Garang Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army (SPLM/A), which is now leading South Sudan into independence; what happens when a national federalist political movement becomes an ethnic separatist political movement? This is the problem in several areas of Sudan outside the new borders of South Sudan, areas in which the then federalist SPLM/A recruited fighters to combat the Khartoum regime in the interests of creating a federal “New Sudan.” With South Sudan declaring full independence on July 9, a force of roughly 40,000 Nuba SPLA fighters...

    A New Jersey couple who gave their children Nazi-inspired names should not regain custody of them, a state appeals court ruled Thursday, citing the parents’ own disabilities and the risk of serious injury to their children. The state removed Heath and Deborah Campbell’s three small children from their home in January 2009. A month earlier, the family drew attention when a supermarket refused to decorate a birthday cake for their son, Adolf Hitler Campbell. He and siblings JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell have been in foster care.

    As a politically involved person, I have often been asked why I became a CPA. My answer has always been clear and simple – the public policy of this country runs through the tax code and I wanted to understand that code. Never in my 35-year practice has anything validated that decision like the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. This is not health care reform; it is a full-employment act for CPAs. In an era where Congress changes the tax law more frequently than a Hollywood actress gets Botox shots, nothing has ever come along like this behemoth. My...
