During the Monday episode of his show on SiriusXM 125, David Webb had mentioned accusations from certain folks on the left that essentially made American culture out to be a bad thing, for the United States and the rest of the world. Wrapped up in the “culture” term was our economic system, our educational system and of course, our culture as culture. At the end, Mr Webb posed a question, “Is our culture bad?”

I just couldn’t let that one lie there. So, I called in to the show and actually got to speak with Mr Webb. What I told him was this…

I mentioned that both of us having been overseas, he as a Marine and I as a Soldier are very familiar with the sight on certain designated days, a line of foreign nationals stretching around the block occupied by the U.S. Embassy, waiting to apply for visas to come to the United States. Both of us have also been down Embassy Row in Washington DC. At no time have I or did Webb, ever recall seeing a line of Americans around any foreign embassy wanting to emigrate. Over in CID (Army Criminal Investigation Command) or in his case, NCIS, they’d call that a clue. Mr Webb also managed to add a few anecdotes of his own as sort of corollaries to my example. If you want to listen to these two segments, they are on Monday the 6th episode and start at 23 minutes and 2hrs, 15 minutes respectively.

Later on, in the last hour of the show, I managed to tee up with Mr Webb, the idea of revisiting the Davis-Bacon Act during the Infrastructure Bill discussions I wrote of in a previous article. More to follow on that.

You can catch David Webb, Monday-Friday, 0900-1100 EST. SiriusXM members can download broadcasts.

‘In Bad Faith’: Big Tech’s Growing Conservative Censorship

The latest Big Tech censorship news broke last week:

Facebook Bans Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos, Other Far-Right Figures

Let us for the moment leave aside this massive media inanity:

“Farrakhan also among those removed from social-media sites.”

If Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is “far-right” – I’m all the way back around to Karl Marx.

That being said, the latest move by Big Tech to de-platform people they don’t like – cleaved the center-right in two…Donald Trump-style.

The Trump-Never Trump Venn Diagram – is a nigh perfect overlay with the division over Big Tech censorship.

The Never Trump (NT) contingent mostly refused to defend the de-platformed – mostly on three fronts.

One: The de-platformed aren’t themselves defensible.  Because by their NT definition – they aren’t actually conservatives.  And/or they simply do not like them.

Which is willful blindness to the inexorable next waves of Big Tech purges – which will undoubtedly swallow very many who meet their definitions.

Next the NTers – start REALLY sounding Leftist.

Two: The de-platformed’s speech – may actually incite violence.  That crazy people will read what they say – and commit violence as a result.

This is at once incredibly anti-First Amendment, Leftist and intellectually diminutive (please pardon the redundancy).

Crazy people – are crazy.  They can be driven to mad acts – by their refrigerator manual.  Or by a Rogaine commercial.  Or by a flower opening in their yard.  Serial killer David Berkowitz said he took his murderous orders – from a dog named Harvey owned by his neighbor Sam.

You simply can not sanitize the planet for crazy people.

And there is simply no way the threshold for violence-inciting speech – is this ridiculously low:

Conservative actor James Woods has been locked out of his Twitter account for now more than a week.  For curse-word-free quoting the TV show “The Wire.”

If it was on pay TV fifteen years ago – and available via streaming services ever since – there is no way Woods Tweeting it is even remotely problematic.

We’ll get into more, even more ridiculous examples in just a bit.

Three: The NTers say “These Big Tech monsters are private companies – and they can have or not have whomever they wish on their platforms.”

Under normal circumstances, this is exactly the First Amendment “freedom to assemble” argument I have made my entire life.

In our private and business lives, we are free to assemble – or not assemble – any way we wish.  Completely free from government interference or imposition.

I made this exact argument when the Colorado baker wouldn’t bake a homosexual wedding cake.  His lawyers made the “freedom of religion” argument – which worked, he won – but that was to me the weaker tack to take.

“It’s my private business…and I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone” – seems undeniably strong to me.

But when faced by monstrous Big Tech’s de-platforming – this argument simply does not apply.  For several reasons.

For starters – Big Tech isn’t making this argument:

“Facebook Inc. said it’s banning a number of controversial far-right figures…for violating the social-media company’s policies on hate speech and promoting violence.”

This is omni-directional absurd.

“Promoting violence” – ???

Gay gadfly Milo Yiannopoulos was among the recently Facebook banned.  He was also banned by Twitter in 2016.

Milo has to my knowledge – and I LOOKED prior to writing this – never said a single thing that could be even remotely construed to incite violence.

But what about Leftist radical group Antifa?

Antifa got a Milo appearance at Berkley University cancelled – by violently tearing up the campus the month prior to Milo’s arrival.

Here’s a bunch of videos of Antifa’s violent Berkley destruction.  Here’s more videos of Antifa violence – in Portland, Oregon, Huntington Beach, California, Laguna Beach, California, at Kent State University and elsewhere.  Here are two compilations of Antifa attacking people all over the place.

But Facebook – hasn’t banned Antifa.

So Milo tries to peacefully engage in free speech at Berkley.  Antifa responds with violence.

And Berkley, Twitter and Facebook – ban Milo, and keep Antifa.

That’s…a little backwards.

And “hate speech” – is speech.  You can’t ban the adjective – without banning the underlying noun.

And “hate” – is in the eye of the beholder.  And the beholder – has biases.  Because the beholder – is human(s).

Let’s do some basic math, shall we?

There are about seven-and-a-half billion people on Planet Earth.  Let’s conservatively say three billion of them have access to the Internet – which means access to Big Tech’s platforms.

There is literally no way a website with as many posting members as a Facebook or YouTube – can possibly read each and every post for possible deleting purposes.  There are simply WAY too many.

So the platforms will have to come up with some sort of criteria to preemptively prevent the kinds of posts they wish to prevent.

Well, Big Tech – is exceedingly hard Left.  So their criteria – will be exceedingly hard Left.

Twitter CEO Dorsey: Comment Backing ‘Free Speech’ Was ‘a Joke’

We could list examples…until the crack of Doom.

All of which brings us to: The 1996 Communications Decency Act – and its Section 230.

Which gives Big Tech companies running allegedly open platforms like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube – immunity from the lawsuit likes of slander, libel and Intellectual Property (IP) infringement.

Because it is users – not the companies – posting on their platforms.

So if a user slanders someone on Facebook – Facebook must remove the post when made aware, but can not be sued for it.

If a user uploads an entire movie to YouTube – Google must remove it when made aware, but can not be sued for it.

Makes perfect sense.

Except: The Big Tech companies were given this massive immunity – in exchange for each being an open platform.

Where everyone can post – and the companies do not edit.

If the companies start editing content and users, they cease to be immunized “platforms” – and start to be sue-able “publishers.”

To wit: The New York Times is a publisher.  With First Amendment rights – including the freedom to assemble any way they wish.  But they can be sued for slander, libel and IP infringement.

Big Tech – can’t have it both ways.  Availing themselves of “platform” immunities – while editing conservatives out of existence like “publishers.”

Big Tech’s Lying Legal Two-Step – To Defend Their Censorship Of Conservatives

Here’s the portion of Section 230 – on which Big Tech seems to be hanging its anti-conservative hats:

“Civil liability:

“No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be held liable on account of—

“(A) any action voluntarily taken in good faith to restrict access to or availability of material that the provider or user considers to be obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable, whether or not such material is constitutionally protected; or

“(B) any action taken to enable or make available to information content providers or others the technical means to restrict access to material described in paragraph.”

(Emphasis ours.)

If Big Tech’s censorship is done “in good faith” – they do not lose their lawsuit immunity.

No one with an IQ above nine on a warm day – can possibly think Big Tech is censoring “in good faith.”

I’m no lawyer (thank God) – but there are several ways to address the monster, censoring monoliths these Big Tech companies have become.

Certainly antitrust is one.  (We have, in fact, made this argument also – for several years.)

Ok – Milo is kicked off of Twitter and Facebook.  What competitors to these two behemoths can he join instead?  You can’t think of a single reasonable one for either – and neither can I.

Really long second shot: We may even be able to use the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act:

“(C)ommonly referred to as the RICO Act or simply RICO,…focuses specifically on racketeering and allows the leaders of a syndicate to be tried for the crimes they ordered others to do or assisted them in doing, closing a perceived loophole that allowed a person who instructed someone else to, for example, murder, to be exempt from the trial because they did not actually commit the crime personally.”

But where we should certainly start – is Big Tech’s wanton and blatant violations of Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act.

I’ve been told by a Never Trump attorney that it is impossible to prove “bad faith” in court.

I’d argue I just did here in print.

But if it’s true this part of the law is unenforceable – then the law is an ass.

We should throw it out – and pass something enforceable in its place.

We must do something about what’s happening.

Because what’s happening – ain’t great for the future of our nation.

Ilhan Omar Responds to Criticism of Her Maduro Support Exactly As You’d Expect

Westlake Legal Group ilhan-omar-pucker-SCREENSHOT-620x310 Ilhan Omar Responds to Criticism of Her Maduro Support Exactly As You’d Expect Venezuela Socialist Dictator rashida tlaib Politics Nicolas Maduro Mike Pence Marco Rubio Ilhan Omar Ignorance Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats AOC

Yesterday, I wrote a piece on Marco Rubio criticizing Ilhan Omar’s nonsensical take on Venezuela, namely that she thinks the U.S. is responsible for the economic collapse (narrator: it’s not) and that Venezuelans are better off without regime change (narrator: they aren’t).

Here’s a refresher on what she said.

“This particular bullying and the use of sanctions to eventually intervene and make regime change really does not help the people of countries like Venezuela, and it certainly does not help and is not in the interest of the United States,” Omar said on the progressive television program.

Rubio slammed her as unintelligent and embarrassing.

VP Mike Pence also responded to Omar’s crazy comments.

I’ll give you one guess what Omar’s response was.

Ok, time’s up.

You see, it’s not that Pence and Rubio are rightly calling out how wrong she was in her Maduro supporting rant about sanctions, it’s that everyone criticizing her is RACIST! (in my best Tucker Carlson voice).

The “women of color” canard is the favorite deflection by Omar, AOC, and Tlaib. Anytime anyone points out how ill-informed they are, they throw it out there. Accusing someone of racism in our society has taken the place of rational debate.

What’s perhaps sadder than Omar’s response are those pretending it’s clever and factual. If you scroll through the responses to her tweet above, you’ll see hundreds of people insisting that a 4 month House member with no expertise in anything is the one who actually knows what she’s talking about. Never mind that she’s factually wrong, she checks the inter-sectional and political boxes and must be defended at all costs.

I sure hope the saying that Twitter isn’t real life holds true in this instance because if it doesn’t and these people vote, we are in trouble. There was a time when both sides of the political aisle would largely agree that a socialist dictator like Maduro should be opposed, even if just diplomatically. Unfortunately, we no longer live in that time.

React, Seize, or Pounce? Here’s Your Guide To Making A Story About Conservatives

It seems like any time someone says or does something controversial of late, the headline trend in reporting the story is to couch is as how conservatives are reacting to the story.

Take the story of the Alabama politicians who made a rather gruesome comment about abortion.

Apparently, the way some outlets decided to cover it is by noting the conservative reaction to the comments, rather than the fact that John Rogers actually said what he said.

Or what about that Twitter screw-up Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made?

It’s not the story. It’s the way we react to it. That’s what makes for headline writing today. It’s a growing trend, and it’s lazy writing.

But, there is one thing that’s always been difficult to figure out: When is it a “pounce”, a “seize”, or a “rail”? Well, I’ve been doing a lot of research into this, and I have come up with the following chart to help out.

Westlake Legal Group conservative-outrage-threat-620x886 React, Seize, or Pounce? Here’s Your Guide To Making A Story About Conservatives media bias Media journalism Front Page Stories Featured Story conservatives pounce AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Abortion

(Image by Joe Cunningham/RedState)

Now clearly, Roger’s comments were atrocious and told us that it’s okay to kill a baby just because. This is exactly the kind of thing we said would become the mentality, though we were assured by pro-choice advocates that it was all about rape, incest, and the life of the mother. But because we believe in the sanctity of life from conception to death, our outrage over this senseless dehumanizing of unborn children becomes the story, rather than the controversial statement we’re reacting to.

Therefore, we are not just seizing or pouncing, but we’re railing. We’re completely outraged at this point.

I encourage any journalist who reads this to use this guide when writing about how we react to stories in the future. This haphazard throwing about of words is confusing and provides little clarity as to the severity of the story you’re writing about.

I want to apologize in advance for what I’m about to subject you to. Just to be clear, I take no pleasure in this but seeing as how I’ve seen it, and misery loves company, I’m going to have you suffer with me.

The comic about freshman New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) titled “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Freshman Force: New Party Who Dis?” has some very fascinating depictions of politicians and their interactions throughout its pages.

In one panel we have AOC physically assaulting President Donald Trump and then shaving his head before putting him in jail. We also a shredded mike pence standing shirtless in front of a waving LGBT rainbow flag as we’re informed he sought forgiveness from the gay community. The NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch even makes an appearance.

But all of that is nothing compared to how the comic depicts House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Crazytown). The assault upon the eyes and mind is such that there isn’t enough bleach in the world that could scrub that stain from your mind.

Pelosi, to put it simply, is depicted as a very muscular woman. That’s not the worst part.

The worst part is that it depicts her coming out of the shower.

I’m not sure what the human race ever did to Ocasio-Cortez or her fans to deserve this. I can only assume that whatever malicious force is bent on the elimination of our species is using AOC as a conduit through which to channel its eldritch hatred, and has begun its assault on humanity with this devastating opening blow.

May God have mercy on our souls.

WATCH: Kellyanne Conway Rips AOC and MSM “Fangirls” Over Twitter Double Standards

Westlake Legal Group KellyanneConway WATCH: Kellyanne Conway Rips AOC and MSM “Fangirls” Over Twitter Double Standards twitter Social Media Sean Hannity Politics North Carolina New York Media kellyanne conway journalism Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Culture Congress AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway. Screen grab via Fox News.

As Sam at Twitchy documented yesterday, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway called out Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY-14) on CNN over the weekend on her lack of tweets in response to the deadly Easter Sunday Sri Lanka terrorist attacks.

The attacks left nearly 300 dead and scores more injured. Ocasio-Cortez, a prolific tweeter who frequently uses the social media platform as a bully pulpit and battering ram, was curiously silent about them.

As she so often does, the freshman Congresswoman completely missed Conway’s point and clapped back in several tweets by defensively suggesting she was attempting to question her Christian faith.

Conway corrected her in her next tweet:

Last night, Conway appeared on Sean Hannity’s program on Fox News to discuss the issue at length. She noted how she is often called on by the mainstream media to explain President Trump’s tweets, but how AOC routinely gets a pass on hers:

“I usually leave Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and some of these other freshmen like Ilhan Omar, [Rashida] Tlaib alone because basically when they speak, it’s a gift to conservatives and to the Republican Party,” Conway said. But she told Sean Hannity that while she is pressed consistently on everything President Trump says, Ocasio-Cortez is treated like a ‘hero’ and goes unchallenged in the media.

“But I really had to call her out here because I am on television shows, and I’m asked constantly, ‘Why didn’t Donald Trump say this, why did he use that word? Where is the semi-colon in this tweet where I believe it should be.’ And I said hey, does anybody ask Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who you give a hero’s welcome to? All you fangirls ever bother to ask her why she’s been completely silent on the massacre against Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday?” Conway said.

[…]

“The very next day, still picking through the rubble in Sri Lanka, looking for survivors or of the deceased. She had time to tweet about a Netflix documentary about her,” Conway said.

Watch the segment below:

Some people have accused Conway of concern-trolling but she has a valid point here, and she’s going off the left’s rules of engagement in making her point. When Trump is silent even for a couple of hours over a breaking news story that involves injuries and our deaths , the media and progressives jump all over him. When he makes an error in his tweets, like a typo or something similar, he gets jumped on by the MSM then, too.

AOC, on the other hand, rarely is.

The media need to be more cognizant of this, and treat politicians in both parties with the same standard.

They won’t, of course, and Conway knows this. But it’s worth pointing out anyway.

This has been an absolute truth for at least the last half century:

If something is good for America and Americans – it is bad for Leftists.

The Left is in the misery business.

In order for the Left to achieve and hold on to power – things must be awful.  Or they must lie – and say things are awful when they are not.

To foster this latter massive falsehood – Leftists concoct many less-massive falsehoods.

We import more than a million foreigners per year – yet the Left screeches we are a racist, xenophobic, anti-immigrant nation.

We just finished two terms of a black president – yet the Left screeches we are in times worse than the days of Jim Crow.

We just had a very impressive 3.2% Gross Domestic Product (GDP) first quarter.  A continued, massive economic expansion – in the face of widespread “expert” predictions of a looming recession.

Unemployment is at a near record low.  Speaking of “racism” – Black and Hispanic unemployment is at their lowest respective rates…since we began recording such numbers.

Wages are increasing at rates significantly greater than they have at any point during the preceding half century.

The Donald Trump Economy – is roaring.

Unfortunately for the twenty Democrat presidential candidates (so far) – they have to run against it.  So they have to pretend the very may significant improvements upon the Democrat Barack Obama Economy – aren’t actually happening.

Should the Trump Economy continue roaring as we head into the 2020 election – we will be subjected to the biggest Media-Left (please pardon the redundancy) gaslighting in the history of gaslighting:

“(A) form of psychological manipulation that seeks to sow seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or in members of a targeted group, making them question their own memory, perception, and sanity.

“Using persistent denial, misdirection, contradiction, and lying, it attempts to destabilize the victim and delegitimize the victim’s belief.”

If you want a less esoteric explanation – I give you the Marx Brothers:

“Well, who you gonna believe? Me or your own eyes?”

Sometimes things are so antithetical to the Left’s lies – they simply can not continue lying after the fact.

I give you – the Internet.  And the very many lies the Left tells about Network Neutrality.

Disingenuously in its name, the Obama Administration in 2015 unilaterally imposed 1934 landline telephone law upon the Internet.

In 2017, the Trump Administration prepared to undo this titanic stupidity.  And the Media-Left – went completely insane in their attempts to set up the gaslighting.

Under Trump the Future of Net Neutrality and Broadband is Uncertain

Except the Trump Administration undid the Obama power and grab, and….nothing bad happened.  NONE of the very many negatives above – transpired.  The Internet after – was identical to the Internet before.

Oh – except private sector investment in the Internet shot back up to pre-Obama-power-grab levels…and beyond.  And as investment increased – Internet speeds increased.

All very good things for America and Americans.  All very bad things for the Media-Left.

The post-Trump-freedom-restoration Internet has been so outstanding – even the Media-Left’s massive mendacity…was exceeded by reality.

As dishonest as they are – they couldn’t bring themselves to try to lie about what is actually happening.

Except here comes another opportunity for the Media-Left to drum up one of their oldie-but-goodie lies – the “Internet fast lane.”

Cox Cable Testing a Form of ‘Fast Lane’ Internet For Gamers

And just like with everything else – this development is good news for America and Americans.  Which means it’s bad news for Leftists.

That phrase “fast lane” – is itself a misrepresentation of how the Internet actually works.  And the Left makes up the phrase “fast lane” – so as to then lie and say we’ll all be consigned to a made up “slow lane.”

After Net Neutrality, Brace for Internet ‘Fast Lanes’:

“Now that federal telecom regulators have repealed net neutrality, it may be time to brace for the arrival of internet ‘fast lanes’ and ‘slow lanes.’

Net Neutrality’s Repeal Means Fast Lanes Could Be Coming to the Internet. Is That a Good Thing?:

“The concept, known as paid prioritization, involves a telecommunications company charging an additional fee to transport a video stream or other content at a higher speed through its network.”

“Paid prioritization” – exists…everywhere else on Planet Earth:

“(T)he examples of private sector ‘paid prioritization’ ‘fast lanes’ – are nigh endless. Let’s examine just one.

“When you send a letter or package – are you limited to one delivery speed? Of course not.

“To chose but one private sector provider at random:

“UPS offers seven different delivery options: UPS Next Day Air Early, UPS Next Day Air, UPS Next Day Air Saver, UPS 2nd Day Air A.M., UPS 2nd Day Air, UPS 3 Day Select and UPS Ground.

“Heck, the government post office offers five different delivery options – right there on its government website.

“These are all variations of ‘paid prioritization’ ‘fast lanes.’ And no one is demanding the government ban them – because anyone who would do so would look titanically stupid.”

And guess what?  The Left only wants to ban “fast lanes” – for Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

The much-more-massive, massive-bandwidth-hog Big Tech companies like Google and Facebook – who shovel lots and LOTS of money to the Left?  They not only can have “fast lanes” – they already do:

(T)here are hundreds of thousands (millions?) of them – and they have for years and years been an intrinsic part of the World Wide Web.

“Behold the Content Delivery Network (CDN): ‘(A) geographically distributed network of proxy servers and their data centers. The goal is to distribute service spatially relative to end-users to provide high availability and high performance….

“‘CDNs are a layer in the internet ecosystem. Content owners such as media companies and e-commerce vendors pay CDN operators to deliver their content to their end users. In turn, a CDN pays ISPs, carriers, and network operators for hosting its servers in their data centers.’

“Get all the facets of this particular Leftist lie?

“‘Fast lanes’ – aren’t actually fast lanes. And they are nothing new. They have nigh always been intrinsically woven into the Internet fabric.

“And the Left only wants to ban the practice for their political enemies – while allowing their political cronies to continue to build and use them unabated. Enjoy some cronyism with your delusion.”

Per the gamers: They use a LOT of bandwidth when they play other gamers online.  And they are very much concerned with “latency”:

“Latency = delay. It’s the amount of delay (or time) it takes to send information from one point to the next. Latency is usually measured in milliseconds or ms. It’s also referred to (during speed tests) as a ping rate.”

Latency is the amount of time between a gamer hitting a controller button – and the computer recognizing and executing his push of said button.  Longer latency – gets you killed or beaten.  Thus, gamers are incessantly obsessing about latency.

And yet again, the marketplace – is trying to accommodate.

Cox Cable Testing a Form of ‘Fast Lane’ Internet For Gamers

Ok – let’s use the Left’s disingenuous terminology.  To demonstrate how incredibly stupid the Left’s objections are.

Giving gamers their own “lane” – gets them off the “main roads” with all the additional traffic slowing them down.  Less traffic – less latency.  Good for gamers.

And getting gamers off the “main roads” – is better for everyone else.  Because those massive bandwidth hogs – won’t be hogging the “main roads’” bandwidth.  Leaving much more for the rest of us.

Charging bandwidth hog gamers a little more for all the bandwidth they’re hogging – is only fair.  You pay more at the grocery store for fifty steaks – than you do for five.

Which, by the way, ends our subsidizing gamers’ bandwidth hogging.

And a whole lot of that additional money – will be invested in ever-improving the networks we all use.

All of which – is nothing more than the creation of more CDNs.

Which have existed for decades – and already exist in the millions.

All of which is very good for America and Americans.

But very bad for the Net Neutrality-fetishizing, anti-free market, gaslighting Left.

Many on the Left have a peculiar idea: Someone who doesn’t obey the law against mass murder would be scared to death to break the one about making an unlawful gun purchase.

Perspective: In Utah, the punishment for buying a firearm illegally is up to ten years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

The state’s legal punishment for murder: death by firing squad.

Which sounds worse?

Noneheless, every time there’s a mass shooting, Democratic politicians and much of the media race to promote laws which will deter those afraid of 10 years’ imprisonment in order to control those who aren’t afraid of the firing squad.

That…what’s that called? Oh yeah — dumb.

Yet, in response to Saturday’s Chabad of Poway shooting in San Diego — in which a 60-year-old woman was killed and three others injured, including an 8-year-old-girl (here) — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reached for old faithful:

“The longer the Senate delays holding a vote on #HR8, the more we put Americans at risk.”

HR8 = Requires a background check for every firearm sale.

As pointed out by RedState’s Elizabeth Vaughn Sunday, the 19-year-old perpetrator of the deadly Passover violence wrote a manifesto which included the following:

“Every Jew young and old has contributed to [mosque attacks in Pittsburgh and New Zealand]. For these crimes they deserve nothing but hell. I will send them there. … Make sure to call me a ‘white supremacist’ and ‘anti-semite’ or whatever bullsh** you spew to spook the normal fags.”

He also called President Trump a “Zionist, Jew-loving, anti-White, traitorous c*cks***er.”

Oh — and he shot up a church and killed an old lady.

Does that sound like the target demographic for HR8?

It did, apparently, to AOC.

Not everyone was impressed:

And then there was this guy, who had an especially great point:

Arsen Ostrovsky wanted to talk about anti-Semitism:

And then the BEST point, which surely won’t be trumpeted by the mainstream media:

Good one, Jason Howerton.

If you haven’t heard, the murderer’s assault was thwarted by an agent of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.

And if you haven’t noticed, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a goob (here and here).

It Sure Looks Like AOC Broke Campaign Finance Law With Her Latest Stunt

Westlake Legal Group AOC-Speech-620x361 It Sure Looks Like AOC Broke Campaign Finance Law With Her Latest Stunt Politics misleading media bias Fun Run Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats Campaign Finance Violations Campaign Coffers AOC Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 5K

She’s really not good at this whole campaign finance thing. Questions have already been raised about how her campaign was funded, her connection to the Justice Democrats group, and whether she was funneling money illegally to her boyfriend for supposed consulting work. Well, there’s apparently more to critique about her campaign’s use of money.

Recently, the freshest of the fresh faces in Congress, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, held a 5k “Family fun run” in which she was claiming to raise money to support her Green New Deal.

The issue is that she was actually just shoveling all the cash into her campaign coffers.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez held a 5k in Queens Saturday that she billed as “a Family Fun Run supporting U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal on the Saturday following Earth Day.”

But many of the 400 runners didn’t realize their $30 registration fees were going directly into the lawmaker’s campaign coffers.

“We’re getting together for our own health, for our planet’s health … and to fight for the Green New Deal together,” the freshman Democrat told the participants before they set off.

While the misleading nature of the event is bad enough, that’s actually not the biggest issue.

It turns out that parents were forced to pay $20 for their children to participate in a 1K run separate from the main 5K. That’s an issue because campaign finance law says that it’s illegal to donate money to a political campaign in the name of a child. Yet, that’s exactly what went on as kids were made to register under their name and pay money for the run.

Even kids as young as 3 became unknowing political donors — ponying up $20 fees to join a kids’ 1k.

But by fudging the fact that those fees were actually campaign contributions, AOC may have enticed constituents into inadvertently breaking federal election laws.

Parents, for example, can’t contribute their own funds in a child’s name.

Oops.

Of course, being that AOC is a Democrat, nothing will happen here. There won’t be threats from the SDNY bearing down on her nor will she likely even be fined. It’s good to be the queen I guess, as long as you belong to the right political party at least.

In the end, what this really shows is just how hypocritical AOC is. She preaches the evils of money in politics, but she’s nothing but your typical sleazeball politician when it comes to how she raises and handles money for herself. If the media weren’t so busy worshiping the ground she walks on, they might try looking into some of this stuff. It could prove fruitful to an actual journalist willing to do their job.

CLIMATE CHANGE WIENERS: In Order to Save the Planet, NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio Eyes Banning Hot Dogs

Oh boy.

The Left continues its climate change clamour.

In an effort to save the planet, New York City is considering outlawing its signature meat — the hot dog.

Yeah — that’ll save it.

As reported by KFI 640:

New York City is the first city in the United States to eliminate processed meats.

Mayor Bill de Blasio approved an ambitious $14 billion Green New Deal on Monday, April 22, to combat climate change. The plan will cut purchases of red meat by 50 percent in its city-controlled facilities such as hospitals, schools, and correctional facilities. The new commitment builds off of the Meatless Mondays campaign that was adopted by all NYC schools in 2017.

The mayor says it’s…wait for it…necessary:

“It is a difficult plan. It is a necessary plan…. Estimates that tell us that we have only 12 years to get it right. Let’s be clear, we have until 2030 to change things fundamentally, or our lives won’t be the same.”

Twelve years, people. Then the Earth is doomed.

Hey, wait — didn’t Al Gore already tell us that? Oh yeah — hasn’t Bill heard? The world ended three years ago.

Courtesy of Townhall:

Mr Gore told his supporters a decade ago that the world had until 27th January 2016 to end its addiction to fossil fuels or the it would come to an end. Gore did not specify what householders might expect to happen today, but he was clear that this would be the end.

So hey — why do anything now? If you wake up three hours late, just go to the beach. You’ve already missed work.

And while you’re there, have a hot dog.

But don’t let Bill hear about it; he’s on the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez plan, even though she’s Cow-Farting in the Face of Science.

As per by The Daily Wire:

Like the “national” Green New Deal, New York City’s version seeks to reduce the metropolis’ carbon emissions to “net zero” by 2050, and like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s plan, covers more than just the environment, but instead demands the nationalization of certain industies, including health care.

But there is this:

New Yorkers will be able to keep their precious hot dog street carts, and tourists will still be able to fill up on dirty water dogs in Times Square — at least for now.

More from KFI:

By 2030, New York City’s Green New Deal will reduce greenhouse emissions by 30% while also creating new jobs. Additionally, all buildings that are 25,000 square feet or more, of which there are 50,000 citywide, will be required to make efficiency upgrades that lower their energy usage and emissions or they will face steep penalties.

Bill says we’re doing it to save the planet.

The whole planet.

Dear Bill,

New York City can’t save the entire planet. If you’re right about the 12 years and the ominous threat imposed by Ball Park Franks, only the whole planet can save the whole planet.

-Alex Parker

Population of New York City: 8.5 million.

Population of the planet: 7.7 billion.

All of America: 328 million.

Think we can conquer the remaining 7,372,000,000 people by 2031? I thought colonialism was wrong?

#FAIL.

Here’s a bit more perspective:

Westlake Legal Group world-map-SCREENSHOT CLIMATE CHANGE WIENERS: In Order to Save the Planet, NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio Eyes Banning Hot Dogs Uncategorized Red Meat New York City New York hot dogs Global Warming Front Page Stories Featured Story environment democrats Climate Bill de Blasio AOC Allow Media Exception

That’s the world.

Take that map and enlarge it by 2000% on a 17-inch screen. Then find a baby and take one of his or her hairs. Then touch that hair to the screen, in the upper right corner of America.

That’s New York City.

Does it look like hot dogs are gonna save us?

TDW notes the broader plan includes an eradication of systemic oppression:

A copy of the GND executive summary lists among the program’s goals a universal health care plan for all New Yorkers, fair wages, affordable housing, modern infrastructure, public education improvements, and a “car-free” city by 2050. The plan includes not just food bans, but a first-in-the-nation “congestion charge” for vehicles traveling in and out of Manhattan, and programs designed to “address systematic oppression” within NYC’s boundaries.

And it all goes back to farts:

The theory behind banning hot dogs, though, is similar to the plan outlined in a national Green New Deal “FAQ” to completely eliminate livestock cultivation: that red meat has an extensive environmental footprint that encompasses everything from methane-producing cattle to the carbon emissions from your backyard grill. The process of raising, handling, packaging, and delivering red meat — and especially processed red meat — is considered by environmentalists as one of the cardinal sins of climate change.

Nice!

But I’m thinking No.

The biggest reason not to remove hot dogs? It flies in the face of poetry: You are what you eat; and Bill de Blasio is a wiener.
