  • (Socialist) Kshama Sawant calls for city to investigate threatening messages sent from city email address

    SEATTLE - Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant says she's received multiple threatening emails from a Seattle Fire Department's city email address. In a letter sent to city officials, the socialist and often controversial councilwoman says the emails began in December 2020 with a message telling her to leave town. From there, the messages became more sinister, Sawant says, with the "most ominous" message sent Jan. 18. A Seattle Fire Department spokeperson says they are investigating and police have been notified. An administrator reportedly told Sawant in late December that the employee in question denies sending the emails, but Sawant...
  • AOC Flashes ‘White Power’ Symbol, But It’s Only Problematic When Conservatives Do It

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic congresswoman from New York, flashed a double white-power symbol during a Zoom conference about New York City’s crime uptick. Perhaps it was just an “OK” sign or even just a mindless gesture, but that doesn’t matter these days. During the Zoom video, which The Hill uploaded to its YouTube channel Sunday, Ocasio-Cortez spoke to constituents and answered press questions about rising crime rates in the Big Apple. She pointed to the Wuhan virus, financial instability, and police brutality as reasons for the rise in crime, failing to mention anything about the violent riots that swept the...

    A former Congressman from Tennessee set off an internet firestorm when he appeared on Fox News remotely Thursday, with a portrait of former Chairman of the People’s Republic of China and founder of the Chinese Communist Party Mao Zedong in the background. Harold Ford Jr., a Democrat, represented Tennessee’s Ninth Congressional District for a decade, from 1997 to 2007. Now, he provides commentary frequently on Fox News. Fox News viewers noticed some strange background decor during Ford’s appearance on “Special Report” with Bret Baier Thursday. “Wow, [Harold Ford Jr.] rockin’ the Warhol Mao over the fireplace. I liked the Muhammad...
  • ‘You’re a Socialist! I Loathe You!’ – Heckler Disrupts Chuck Schumer’s Presser in NYC (VIDEO)

    Hecklers interrupted Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer’s presser in Midtown Manhattan Tuesday afternoon. Schumer called for Americans who stormed the US Capitol last week to be placed on the no-fly list. “We cannot allow these same insurrectionists to get on a plane and cause more violence and more damage,” Schumer said. A protester, who described him/herself as a “transsexual gypsy” confronted Schumer and called him a “racist anti-Semite.” “Remember this, Adolf Hitler was a Socialist and that’s exactly who you follow!” the protester said to Schumer. “You’re nothing but a coward!” According to reporters, another protester shouted at Schumer, “Traitor! Treason!...

    At any anti-lockdown protest, you will see signs that say “Stop the Great Reset.” The New York Times calls this phrase “a baseless conspiracy theory.” Here is the problem. None of this is secret. There are books you can read about it and detailed websites describing it. Time Magazine even did a cover story. It’s the title of World Economic Forum head Klaus Schwab’s book on the lockdowns and the future. It was published July 9, 2020, and now has nearly 900 reviews on Amazon. Proponents of “The Great Reset” argue that the pandemic proves our former society “doesn’t work,”...
  • Pope Francis Tells Catholics to Receive Vaccines Made From the Tissue of Dead, Mutilated, Aborted Fetuses

    Pope Francis is urging Catholics worldwide to receive COVID-19 vaccines, even if the vaccines have derived from mutilated fetuses tortured and murdered during the mortal sin of abortion. The Vatican made the announcement to Catholics on Monday that God is okay with these shots made from the parts of babies ripped to shreds. They use an argument pertaining to the “differing degrees of responsibility of cooperation in evil” to justify their position. They claim the vaccine is permissible because “they can be used in good conscience with the certain knowledge that (it) does not constitute formal cooperation with the abortion...

  • AOC calls Amazon jobs a 'scam' because more than 4,000 of its employees are on food stamps

    Business Insider via MSN ^ | 12/19/20 | Kevin Shalvey
    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday said Amazon's jobs are a "scam" because they're not creating financial security for workers. "A 'job' that leaves you homeless & on food stamps isn't a job. It's a scam," she said on Twitter. Ocasio-Cortez referenced a Bloomberg News report detailing how many Amazon warehouse workers struggle to pay bills, with as many as 4,000 on food stamps. The report said Amazon has turned logistics work from a professional career option to "entry-level" work for many. As Amazon's workforce has soared during the pandemic, safety conditions in its warehouses have failed to keep pace, according...

    NEW YORK - Sen. Elizabeth Warren has a book coming out about six key experiences and perspectives. The title should be familiar to those who have followed the Massachusetts Democrat’s career: “Persist.” Henry Holt and Company announced Wednesday that “Persist,” which the publisher calls “a deeply personal book and a powerful call to action,” will be released April 20. “Persist” will refer to Warren’s recent bid for the Democratic presidential nomination, won by Joe Biden, but is not a campaign memoir. “I wrote ‘Persist’ because I remain as committed as ever to fighting for an America that works for everyone,”...

    As Washington state elector Jack Arends registered his vote for President-elect Joe Biden on Monday, his voice cracked with emotion. Then, Arends, 64, told the chamber that a doctor last month had diagnosed him with an untreatable, terminal condition. "[In] November I was told there is no more medical treatment that can help me so it was important for me to do this one thing that I could do while I still can," said Arends, who wore a black beret reading, "Play Nice." After his speech, Arends placed his microphone on the desk, crossed his arms over his face, and...

    SEATTLE - Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan will not seek re-election, prompting what will likely be significant political posturing for the position and a 2021 city campaign season like no other. “I've decided that I will not seek a second term,” Durkan told KING 5. “2020 has just been a brutal year, but we have some really tough months ahead of us. We still have to fight COVID, we've got to deliver a vaccine, and we're gonna have a really hard job of rebuilding our economy, our downtown and continuing all the work on equity.

    The World Economic Forum (WEF) was founded fifty years ago. It has gained more and more prominence over the decades and has become one of the leading platforms of futuristic thinking and planning. As a meeting place of the global elite, the WEF brings together the leaders in business and politics along with a few selected intellectuals. The main thrust of the forum is global control. Free markets and individual choice do not stand as the top values, but state interventionism and collectivism. Individual liberty and private property are to disappear from this planet until 2030 according to the projections...

    Allies of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro won a majority of votes in a parliamentary election that saw scant participation due to a boycott by the opposition, which said Sunday’s event was a farce meant to consolidate a dictatorship. The elections council said that 67.6% of the 5.2 million votes cast in Sunday’s election went to an alliance of parties called the Great Patriotic Pole that backs Maduro – but that only 31% of eligible voters participated. Voting centers were left barren in an embarrassment to the ruling Socialist Party, but the results nonetheless return congress to Maduro’s control despite an...

    Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant's appeal to dismiss the recall effort against her will head to the Washington State Supreme Court in January 2021 where it is expected to be decided without oral arguments. Back in September, King County Superior Judge Jim Rogers allowed four of the six charges alleged in the petition to go forward, saying in his order that the petitioner had proved "knowledge of facts indicating that the Councilmember intended to commit an unlawful act." The charges filed by petitioner Ernest Lou and certified by the lower courts alleged Sawant "used her position in violation of the...

    ROME — Pope Francis called for a “new social justice” Sunday in which all well-intentioned people will challenge the reigning utopia. Addressing “social justice judges” from the African and American continents via streaming, the pope congratulated them for their commitment to “social rights,” asserting that the very fact that men and women “come together to think about their work and to build the new social justice is, without a doubt, excellent news.” The pontiff, who has been a vocal proponent of a “great reset” after the coronavirus pandemic, urged his hearers to “not lose sight of the distressing picture in...

    Big business, the right wing, and now the courts have rung the bell on what is now the fourth round of the fight to expel socialists from Seattle City Hall. The corporate elite are determined to do so by hook or by crook. They failed in the first three rounds to buy this city council seat, the last time with unprecedented corporate cash from Amazon. The latest effort, a right-wing recall campaign, is perhaps the most serious threat so far, seeking now to use the courts and four trumped-up charges to overturn my reelection last year. It’s not for nothing....

    Lately, Sam Jacobs has been having a lot of conversations with his family’s lawyers. He’s trying to gain access to more of his $30 million trust fund. At 25, he’s hit the age when many heirs can blow their money on harebrained businesses or a stable of sports cars. He doesn’t want to do that, but by wealth management standards, his plan is just as bad. He wants to give it all away. “I want to build a world where someone like me, a young person who controls tens of millions of dollars, is impossible,” he said. A socialist since...
