  • Seattle Autonomous Zone Invaded [semi-satire]

    On Wednesday, Mayor Jenny Durkan finally ordered police to retake the six-by-six-block square the City had surrendered to protesters three weeks earlier. It wasn't the fact that crimes committed in the zone were up by more than 500% compared to the previous year; it wasn't the fact that residents trapped in the zone were subjected to nightly terror and violence; it wasn't the squalor, garbage, and filth permeating the zone that prompted her decision. It was the fact that City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant led a mob of zone squatters in a march to the Mayor's home that did the trick....

    Where is this insurrection of socialists leading us? Here. But it doesn't need to be this way. ---- O, pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth, That I am meek and gentle with these butchers! Thou art the ruins of the noblest man 1485 That ever lived in the tide of times. Woe to the hand that shed this costly blood! Over thy wounds now do I prophesy,— Which, like dumb mouths, do ope their ruby lips, To beg the voice and utterance of my tongue— 1490 A curse shall light upon the limbs of men; Domestic fury and fierce...
  • Independence Day Rant For The Echo-Chamber

    07/04/2020 9:08:02 AM PDT · by AggregateThreat · 6 replies
    I read an article a few years ago about an East Coast double-dipping couple who were both retired school superintendents. Upon retirement they both got new superintendent jobs at adjacent school districts. Between retirement and new salaries, they were pulling in $700,000 per year. Anyone who has ever been self-employed understands the enormous effort, risk and sacrifice it takes to generate an income like that. But here you have two, probably socialists, that will support, defend and exploit a blood-sucking system only for their own benefit. I will not go off on a public pension rant here, but that is...

    (Auto Generated Transcript) one of the things that Maya and I found when we were writing this paper we were looking at the discourse that precedes genocide in genocide all states and the enhancement of a sense of victimization on the part of one of the groups usually the group that's going to commit the genocide first of all their sense as their sense of being victims is much heightened by the demagogues who are trying to stir up this sort of hatred so they basically say look you've been oppressed in a variety of ways and these are the...

    Socialism has entered the mainstream of American politics, perhaps for the first time in our history. Socialists insist their model isn't the failed socialisms of the past; rather, they claim their model is the one place where socialism seems to work: Scandinavia. "I think that countries like Denmark and Sweden do very well," Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) says. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has said her proposals "most closely resemble what we see...in Norway, in Finland, in Sweden." But what do we see in Norway, Sweden and other Nordic countries? Lars Lokke Rasmussen, former prime minister of Denmark, insists that those...

    May 5 was the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx, author of Das Kapital and the spiritual leader of Communism, a totalitarian ideology that killed more than 100 million people in the 20th century alone. We should expect the European Union oligarchs to show a bit more respect for the innocent victims of Communism. And yet, Jean-Claude Juncker, the head of the European Commission attended the celebration marking the 200th anniversary of Karl Marx’s birth in Trier and openly declared that he was ‘celebrating the father of Communism’. The media also reports that the EU President defended Marx...
  • Angela Merkel says Britain will have to 'live with the consequences' of Boris Johnson's decision to loosen economic ties with the EU as German leader hardens her Brexit stance

    Angela Merkel announced Britain will have to “live with the consequences” of a distant relationship with the European Union in the event of a no-deal exit. Unlike his predecessor Theresa May, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has scrapped the idea of maintaining close economic ties with the EU after the Brexit transition period ends on December 31. The UK recently rejected a EU deal surrounding environmental and consumer protections and workplace rights, and Mrs. Merkel has now hardened her stance as Germany prepares to take over the rotating presidency of the EU. The German chancellor told the media on Friday:...

    Paris (AFP) -- French cosmetics giant L'Oreal announced Saturday it was removing words like "whitening" from its products, against the backdrop of global anti-racism protests. "The L'Oreal Group has decided to remove the words white/whitening, fair/fairness, light/lightening from all its skin evening products," the company said in a statement. Several companies -- including L'Oreal -- have been criticised recently for skin-lightening products after the global rise of the Black Lives Matter movement following the police killing in the US of African-American George Floyd last month.

    WASHINGTON -- In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the Trump administration on Thursday urged the Supreme Court to overturn the Affordable Care Act. The administration’s latest high court filing came the same day the government reported that close to half a million people who lost their health insurance amid the economic shutdown to slow the spread of COVID-19 have gotten coverage through HealthCare.gov. The administration’s legal brief makes no mention of the virus. Some 20 million Americans could lose their health coverage and protections for people with preexisting health conditions also would be put at risk if the court...

    Newsweak ^ | 6/23/20 | Jenni Fink, Naveed Jamali
    Some Seattle police officers are concerned that disbanding the autonomous zone being occupied by protesters could turn violent. Since officers can't use pepper spray or tear gas to force people to disperse, some officers say their only course of action could be batons and firearms. Two weeks after protesters cordoned off and occupied parts of Capitol Hill, now named the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP), Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan announced on Monday it would be disbanded. Officials didn't share a specific timeline for clearing the area and Durkan said the goal is to have people leave voluntarily. But a Seattle...

    The Internet was born out of efforts to build a decentralized network that could survive a nuclear war. What made the internet so liberating in its early years of mass adoption was the very decentralized nature, the haphazard networks that did not require a rigid integrated hierarchy, that had made it useful to the military, that allowed everyone to have a voice without regard to political hierarchies. The underlying bare-bones infrastructure that made the open internet possible still exists, but has little relevance to a system dominated by a handful of platforms like Google and Amazon. The infrastructure of these...

    One might think that our experience with the coronavirus has given Americans a scary foretaste of radical socialism. Empty shelves, shortages and limits on basic commodities, economic stagnation, and all of this combined with a sustained assault on our privacy, our freedom of assembly and our religious freedom. We have endured on a temporary basis what some socialist societies typically provide on a permanent basis. Yet the socialist gang is still out there — Bernie and the Squad — touting the virtues of socialism. And they’re pulling the Democratic Party in their direction, with Biden now climbing on the free...

    As I was talking Thursday with John Heubusch, the brilliant and dedicated executive director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute, it was really driven home to me what a dangerous period we are living through. ~snip~ It is the ignorance of the mob which allows its members to smear American heroes and destroy the memory of key personalities in the rise of freedom. In Boston, the ignorant and the hateful damaged the statue dedicated to Col. Robert Gould Shaw and the men of the 54th Massachusetts. As anyone familiar with American history – or who has at least...

    Greta Thunberg says the world needs to learn the lessons of coronavirus and treat climate change with similar urgency. That means the world acting "with necessary force", the Swedish climate activist says in an exclusive interview with BBC News. She doesn't think any "green recovery plan" will solve the crisis alone. And she says the world is now passing a "social tipping point" on climate and issues such as Black Lives Matter. "People are starting to realise that we cannot keep looking away from these things", says Ms Thunberg, "we cannot keep sweeping these injustices under the carpet". She says...

    WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued a rule on Friday that would lift anti-discrimination protections under Obamacare for transgender people and women seeking abortions, drawing condemnation from Democratic lawmakers. The rule reverses some provisions of the Affordable Care Act passed during President Barack Obama’s administration, that extended civil rights protections in healthcare to cover areas including gender identity and the termination of a pregnancy. LGBTQ rights groups, Democratic lawmakers and Democratic-controlled states have decried efforts under the administration of Republican President Donald Trump to erode protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer citizens.
