The Creature From Uber Island

There are a lot of reasons to cast a hairy eyeball at Libra, the proposed global currency with its own central bank owned and operated by a team of multinational corporations. We’ve already seen the surprising arrival of totalitarian corporations that presume to decide for us what we’re allowed to say in public, and we’re also witnessing the rise of Social Justice Banking, which only lends to businesses that pass a rigorous screen for political correctness. The combination of the two, if allowed to proceed, can bring us only sorrow.

You can read elsewhere about the nifty way the reserves are set up so that any profits earned by the reserves go to the member corporations, while any losses are borne by the currency holders. Or the possibility, all too real, that Libra could quickly become too big to fail, potentially requiring a bail-out of the member companies by the taxpayers of the world.

We need to talk about how Uber got established. This is relevant for a couple of reasons, not least of which is that Uber itself is one of the founding corporations of Libra (so is Lyft). They remember what they did. And how well it worked.
Westlake Legal Group libra The Creature From Uber Island Technology Front Page Stories Censorship Business & Economy Abuse of Power
Proposing to enter a market like “taxicabs in New York City” does not sound like something that would make it past the mail room at a venture capital firm. It’s a mature market, saturated, and heavily regulated. Breaking into something like that is a long, slow, slog. No thanks.

But that’s only true if you go in the front door. Uber didn’t, and in the process proved the axiom that “it’s easier to get forgiveness than permission”. Basically they snuck in the side door, and moved very quickly. By the time regulators woke up to the fact that there were taxicabs operating all over New York with no medallions, and drivers they knew nothing about, Uber had made enough friends among the voters that the regulators couldn’t touch them; the politicians were bending to popular will. The same model was used all around the world, wherever regulators controlled the taxicab business.

Even though banking regulators have been quick to see Libra coming, and even though they are nowhere near as blind to technology as the taxi regulators were, the “Uber model” of dealing with regulators could still work here. Consider that Facebook — a founding member — has more users than the combined populations of the U.S. and China. That’s a lot of political power, amassed very quickly if they can entice users to sign up. If Libra can make enough friends before a posse of government-powered bureaucrats can get their act together, Libra could achieve escape velocity before Elizabeth Warren could vow to put them out of business.

The main problem here is that we haven’t really figured out yet how we’re going to deal with private entities that wish to dabble in functions that we have historically associated with government. In the U.S., we haven’t had private entities issuing their own currency since 1935. Corporations that want to regulate political speech, or control what the public can buy, were unheard of until recently. But we can already see the future of it, and it is ugly indeed. The prospect of Facebook, with its track record of invading privacy and playing at “policymaker,” controlling a global payments system that could separate individuals from their money at whim, with no due process and no enumerated rights, is terrifying. We need to recognize how rapidly this could happen.

We’ve been so busy worrying about government ownership of the means of production that we forgot about private ownership of the means of governance.

Iran Calls Trump ‘Mentally Retarded.’ The President Reminds Them of Something Very Important

Iran and Donald Trump continue to spar (here).

On Tuesday — following both countries touting how they could destroy each other (here and here), the Middle Eastern nation’s president called our Commander-in-Chief “mentally retarded.”

Suddenly, this doesn’t sound super professional.

On the international playground, Kid Trump fired back with how strong he is — make a muscle.

And how rich:

“You may have some red parachute pants, but I’ve got four Swatches. And I play baseball in my Guess Jeans. “

KT called Kid Iran a bully:

And, said Trump, Iran best not be gettin’ him confused with any of the others they tried to push around before:

Although the President 86’d a strike that would’ve likely killed 150 in the aftermath of Iran’s destruction of a U.S. spy drone, Fox News has confirmed that the U.S. did launch a cyberattack last week:

“Fox News has confirmed that the U.S. military also carried out a cyberattack against Iran last Thursday even as the president nixed plans for airstrikes in response to the downing of an American drone. Sources said U.S. Cyber Command launched the cyberattack targeting the Iranian intelligence and radar installations used to down the U.S. Navy drone last week.”

And the battle — or, the argument in front of the monkey bars — rages on.

Robert Mueller Agrees to Testify in Open Session Before Congress

Westlake Legal Group nadler-e1355597245299 Robert Mueller Agrees to Testify in Open Session Before Congress testimony Special Counsel Russia Robert Mueller Rehash Politics Pointless partisan Nonsense Jerry Nadler Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump democrats Congress collusion adam schiff

Some late breaking news tonight.

Robert Mueller, after stonewalling for months, has agreed to testify in an open session of Congress about the special counsel investigation. This is likely in coordination with the DOJ and super-villain Bill Barr.

This per The Wall Street Journal.

WASHINGTON—Robert Mueller will testify in open session next month before a pair of House committees, in a victory for the Democratic leaders who had long sought his testimony in public.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D., N.Y.) and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) said that the special counsel had agreed to testify in open session on July 17 pursuant to a subpoena.

Both of those committee’s are absolute clown shows, so expect there to be lots of stupid and gnashing of teeth.

It’s unlikely anything new will come from Mueller testifying, as he’s already said he won’t veer away from what’s already in the report itself. While Democrats will try their hardest to get him to deliver a smoking gun that somehow eluded us all this time, what’s more likely to happen is that Mueller will drop a few malleable insinuations like he did at his press conference. The media will go wild in one direction and Adam Schiff will rant on Twitter about moral evil. But the facts are already out there and they aren’t changing.

You can see the strategy that’s coming by reading Nadler’s statement on the matter.

“Americans have demanded to hear directly from the Special Counsel so they can understand what he and his team examined, uncovered, and determined about Russia’s attack on our democracy, the Trump campaign’s acceptance and use of that help, and President Trump and his associates’ obstruction of the investigation into that attack,” the lawmakers wrote in a statement.

Since the Trump campaign didn’t accept any foreign assistance, that line will probably be a dud. But hey, who’s keeping score at this point? This is going to be all rehashed nonsense, which is exactly the purpose of this charade.

Unfortunately for Democrats, all evidence says the American people have checked out on this. Nadler and Schiff can keep beating the dead horse but it’s going to stay dead.

Meghan McCain Combusts Over the Excoriation of Border Detention Centers: ‘I Know What a Torture Facility Looks Like’

[Screenshot from TheDC Shorts, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zV4Sqi_QweQ]

 

On Tuesday’s The View, Meghan McCain got heated over a widely-shared video of a Trump administration attorney Sarah Fabian claiming the government was not “required” to provide particular toiletries and supplies to detained illegal immigrants at the border.

Check it out:

This meant, to Sunny Hostin, that the White House “doesn’t care” about the children.

Joy Behar asserted that it was a case of downright racism — after all, she suggested, it would never be done if the illegals were from Norway.

Sunny punctuated, “No.”

Is it possible for Democrats on television to have a discussion about politics without accusing the other side of racism? Hold for an answer.

In the meantime:

Don’t count out Meghan McCain from any conversation on the poor conditions of holding facilities. She agreed with the panel’s castigation of the situation as “horrific,” but:

“Calling these places torture facilities. I understand it’s a humanitarian crisis. It’s horrific to detain — like you said, people in jail get soap and…toothpaste.”

She was startin’ to get crunk:

“But I know what a torture facility looks like. I’ve been to one. I know —”

Joy interrupted, “But this is –”

Here is, it seems to me, excellent advice when debating any issue with Meghan McCain, whether it be politics or who’s gonna drive on your expedition to Walmart: Don’t interrupt that chick. She’s got firehere, here, and here.

And here:

Listen to me. Excuse me. When you have a facility whose specific purpose is to torture people, that is not what’s going on. Yes, it’s inhumane but there’s a big difference between a Hanoi Hilton and —”

Sunny boldly bounced in:

“We should be less concerned about what we’re calling them and what goes on inside of them. I don’t care what we’re calling them. Kids are dying inside of them. We should care about the dead kids that have come out of them.”

Aaand Meghan snatches back the conch shell:

“Well, my father couldn’t lift me above his head as a child because of his torture wounds so I do think that hyperbole is important,” McCain concluded, referencing the permanent physical damage done to the late Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain as the result of torture following his capture during the Vietnam War.”



Don’t interrupt Meghan McCain. And never, ever call them torture facilities.

But if you’re Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, you can just call ’em something radical and then say it was Liz Cheney (here and here).

Two Moms Expose Drag Queen Story Hour Featuring Stripping Drag Queen, are Forced Out by Police

Westlake Legal Group Capture-6-620x481 Two Moms Expose Drag Queen Story Hour Featuring Stripping Drag Queen, are Forced Out by Police Politics police LGBT kids indoctrination Front Page Stories Featured Story drag queen story hour children antifa Allow Media Exception Activism

Drag Queen Story Hour has become a point of contention between the public and the LGBT activist community, but we’re always told that it’s nothing we need to worry about.

Two moms proved that this isn’t the case.

According to College Fix, two mothers attended the Drag Queen Story Hour and what they witnessed wasn’t at all suitable for children. This includes a drag queen doing something of a strip show to a song that ended with profanity:

The women and some of their allies attending the event in a somewhat undercover capacity were able to capture on film a large amount of the pride festivities at the Renton Public Library — including the graphic performance of a drag queen — before police were called to escort some of the moms out.

In the performance, the drag queen was seen removing a skirt at the start and then dancing in scantily clad clothing to the tune of the song “Like a Girl.” The drag queen sang in part, “If you feel like a girl, then you real like a girl. Do your thing, run the whole damn world.” The song ended with various expletives.

The drag queen’s dance was captured on video.

“I witnessed kids in that show and in the following panel that couldn’t have been more than ten,” one of the moms told The Fix.

Also being handed out at the show, which featured kids ranging from their teens to kids in strollers, were flavored condoms, dental dams, sex pamphlets that depicted a penis, and more.

The sex pamphlet on the penis read: “Reducing sexual risks is the easiest way to prevent your Moby-Dick from exhibiting 50 Shades of Grey … We want you to be the Lord of unzipping Flies, but don’t let an STI catch you by surprise!”

The Fix noted that eventually, the event began forcing out adults that did not have teens with them, and when one refused to leave, police escorted her out forcefully. :

At around 5 p.m., event organizers began to forcibly remove parents who did not have teens with them.

Lynn Meagher, an attendee at the event, tells PJ Media that, while she was being removed by the police, she said, “I am staying here and I am documenting this. If they’re not doing anything wrong, they should not be ashamed. Two officers [then] grabbed my arms and pulled me out of my chair and pushed me out of the library.”

The mothers who were forced out were identified by Emerald City Antifa, who began to work to publish the private information of the women.

They were also approached by an activist who began making threats of exposing them.

“When we went out to the parking lot… We’re standing there talking and this man was photographing us. He started yelling at us and filming us and he said, ‘I’m putting your picture on Twitter. I’m filming your license plate. I’m going to make sure everybody knows who you are, you hateful bigot.’ And then we were surrounded and there are four men filming us and they are kind of circling us like wolves,” one of the moms told The Fix.

It’s frightening to think that the indoctrination of our children is going this far. I can’t blame the police officers for doing their jobs, but it is alarming that the left would actually post activists on deck to make sure that any interference is intimidated and eventually punished.

I can sympathize with the mothers who showed up to see what was going on. Even if they did show up strictly to expose what was happening, it should raise concerns that the people who are telling us that there’s nothing wrong with these drag shows for kids are also making sure we don’t try to see what’s going on.

What’s more, we now have an inside look at what’s going on and we can see for certain that it’s not appropriate for children at all.

Acceptance of LGBT Sinking Among the Youth, and It’s Obvious Why

Westlake Legal Group pokemon-1543556_960_720-620x370 Acceptance of LGBT Sinking Among the Youth, and It’s Obvious Why Youth polls poll Politics LGBT Generation Z Front Page Stories Featured Story drag queen story hour college approval Allow Media Exception

Despite decades of effort by the LGBT community to push acceptance, sometimes to the point of force, a recent poll found that approval among the younger generation is on the decline.

According to USA Today, a new Harris poll taken on behalf of GLAAD released on Monday showed that a significant decline has occurred in terms of how those aged 18 to 34 feel about the LGBT community:

The number of Americans 18 to 34 who are comfortable interacting with LGBTQ people slipped from 53% in 2017 to 45% in 2018 – the only age group to show a decline, according to the annual Accelerating Acceptance report. And that is down from 63% in 2016.

Driving the dilution of acceptance are young women whose overall comfort levels plunged from 64% in 2017 to 52% in 2018, says the survey conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of LGBTQ advocacy group GLAAD.

“We count on the narrative that young people are more progressive and tolerant,” John Gerzema, CEO of The Harris Poll, told USA TODAY. “These numbers are very alarming and signal a looming social crisis in discrimination.”

GLAAD president and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis attributed the fall to the fact that the “newness” of non-conformity is causing this “erosion.”

“This newness they are experiencing could be leading to this erosion. It’s a newness that takes time for people to understand. Our job is to educate about non-conformity,” she said.

However, both Ellis and Gerzema agree that the toxicity of the culture has lead to children rejecting the LGBT message according to USA Today:

The young are bombarded by hate speech on social platforms from viral videos to “mean tweets,” Gerzema said. “Our toxic culture is enveloping young people. It instills fear, alienation, but also permissibility” that could sway “impressionable” young minds on what is acceptable.

And there is a more menacing side, Ellis said. “We are seeing a stark increase in violence in the community.” GLAAD has documented more than 40 incidents of LGBTQ hate violence since Jan. 1.

That’s definitely one theory, but I have a different and likely more accurate one.

Among the population being pressured to conform and capitulate to the LGBT community is the youth. They’re constantly subjected to messaging, told they’re bigots and homophobes if they don’t, and are often deplatformed for bringing up even reasonable and nuanced arguments against LGBT agendas.

It’s all being shoved down their throats without their consent. Take for instance this strip/drag show that took place at a library where a drag queen took off a skirt and dancing to a song that ended with expletives. According to College Fix, teens were meant to see it, but the youngest people in the crowd couldn’t have been more than ten. College Fix also reported that after this performance, some moms were forcibly escorted out of the room with the help of police.

At this same location, they also handed out things like condoms and penis shaped sex documents to children.

Tack onto that the crackdowns being brought on by corporations due to the strongarming occurring by or on behalf of the LGBT community. A perfect example is the recent dust-up between conservative comedian Steven Crowder and Vox’s Carlos Maza, which resulted in YouTube punishing a deluge of websites for their content. They even adopted a policy of punishing those who don’t break rules but may seem controversial due to their opinions.

Add to that the in-your-face kink that LGBT activists want on full display at places like pride parades, and even urge that children be there to see it. They want to force it into the locker rooms and make you deal with it in sports.

The LGBT activists invade your school, workplace, and sometimes your home in order to force their agenda onto you, and then they wonder why the youth are turning away.

As I’ve written before, younger people, especially Generation Z, are more immune to the pressures of political correctness than previous generations have been. They don’t feel the need to pull punches and seem to be able to quickly embrace reality over fiction at a far greater pace than those older than them, even if that reality runs contrary to mainstream narratives.

Right now the mainstream narrative being thrust on society, especially during Pride Month, is that “everyone accepts everything the LGBT community does and says or else.” The younger generations seem to be shrugging and saying “no” at a greater rate. They’ve either had it with the activists on their campus, or the older ones are done with the threats against their professional lives or their own children if capitulation doesn’t happen.

It should be noted that this isn’t likely due to the spread of toxicity, it’s more likely due to the spread of resistance against an activist community that has pushed too hard, and is now getting pushed back. It’s not anti-LGBT sentiment that’s causing the problem, it’s pro-LGBT activism.

Deplorable: AOC Endorses Boycott to Deprive Kids of Beds Days After Complaining About Sleeping Conditions at the Border

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has spent the last year proclaiming herself to be a champion of migrant women, children and families who are trying to cross the border. She’s compared border detention facilities to Nazi concentration camps and has declared without apology that she will continue to refuse the Trump administration’s request for supplemental funding that would help alleviate the humanitarian issues at the border.

But earlier today the freshman Congresswoman revealed a hypocrisy and duplicity on the border issue that is so stunning in nature that it almost takes your breath away.

Let’s take a trip back to her Twitter feed from just a few days ago, where she blasted the Trump administration for allegedly wanting to deprive illegal immigrant children on the border of toothpaste, soap, and adequate sleeping conditions:

Fast forward to today, when a group of Wayfair employees announced a walkout because the company was selling beds to the government to use for children in the detention centers:

Ocasio-Cortez, who just days ago threw firebombs over allegedly deplorable sleeping conditions for children at these detention centers, ENDORSED it:

To me, her jumping on board this campaign to deprive children on the border of beds to sleep on because Orange Man Bad pretty much wins the prize on the Evil Witch scale:

Others were quick to weigh in, including the Trump War Room:

I think this tweet sums it up best:

So she won’t give due consideration to a request for supplemental funding that would help alleviate some of the conditions she complains about, and she doesn’t want suppliers to sell beds to the government to use so children don’t have to sleep in the deplorable conditions she complains about.

Psst: Hey, mainstream media. Know what it’s time to do? It’s time for y’all to – at long last – CALL. HER. OUT.

Teen Vogue Pushing Marxism (Again)

Hot off promoting the virtues of sex work as a career choice, Teen Vogue — surely just trying to deflect attention away from that bizarre story and the resulting bad press it generated — has re-upped another recent classic that is sure to make everyone forget they were telling little Susie to try hooking for a living.

This little gem was originally published in May of this year, and is an attempt to do exactly what the twitter cutline suggests: sell Marxism as super, duper popular and super, duper smart. Just like prostitution.

People on the Twitter machine who might know a little more than the brain trust over at Teen Vogue went to work.

This Intellectual Takeout piece is a must read for really getting at the heart of the man who played the long con of pitting the haves against the have nots is a social war where no one wins except the strongman and dictator who survives.

I suppose the good news is that the Marxists out there have come out into the open instead of sneakily filling college students’ heads full of this nonsense when young people leave home, often for the first time.

Since they’re going after younger teenagers now, there’s a chance for adults to stop the silly indoctrination in its tracks before the failed revolution begins.

In Protest of Washington’s Radical New Sanctuary Law, ICE Releases a List of Atrocities That Resulted From Sanctuary Policies

Westlake Legal Group AP_18016746393078-620x403 In Protest of Washington’s Radical New Sanctuary Law, ICE Releases a List of Atrocities That Resulted From Sanctuary Policies Uncategorized Front Page Stories

Maru Mora-Villalpando looks on as supporters surround her at a news conference announcing that the longtime activist for illegal immigrants in the Northwest says she herself is now facing deportation, Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2018, in Seattle. Mora-Villalpando, a native of Mexico City who has been in the U.S. for more than 25 years, said Tuesday that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has given her a notice to appear before an immigration judge. She says she believes ICE is targeting her because of her activism. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)

 

 

Washington state recently passed what some are calling the most radical sanctuary law in the country. It prohibits local jails and state prisons from honoring Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainers and forbids the notification of illegal immigrants’ pending release. Additionally, it askes the state’s attorney general to enact restrictions on ICE agents making arrests at courthouses and hospitals.

Unusually, the agency fired back in response.

ICE’s criticism comes by way of a June 17th press release, in which it lists seven disturbing cases where sanctuary policies resulted in horrific tragedy.

Here are a few of the cases it references.

Rosalio Ramos-Ramos was taken into custody by police in January for the murder and dismemberment of his cousin. The arrest came mere months following his release from a Washington jail in spite of ICE’s request for an immigration detainer as well as a notification of his pending release. Both were ignored.

As reported by Komo News:

According to ICE a hospital, just like school, are considered a “sensitive location” where enforcement can’t occur unless an “exigent circumstance” exists.

Yasmeen Pitts O’Keefe, a spokeswoman for ICE, said in an email that she’s looking into the case.

Because ICE couldn’t make an arrest at the hospital, Thomas promised agents his officers would keep tabs on Ramos-Ramos. Kent police called the hospital daily, but he said staff there were reluctant to give them information.

Similar request for Martin Gallo-Gallardo were disregarded. Within months of his release from a Clackamas County Oregon jail, he was arrested again — this time for allegedly murdering his wife and dumping her body in a ditch.

Most recently, Francisco Carranza-Ramirez was convicted of raping a wheelchair-bound woman in Seattle. Twice. He was sentenced, incarcerated for less than a year, and released contingent upon him self-deporting back to Mexico. Reportedly, he did indeed go back — after he assaulted the disabled woman for a third time.

From Fox News:

Authorities say he was released on Thursday and on Saturday he tracked down the 32-year-old woman he previously terrorized. He approached the woman the following day and allegedly assaulted her. The woman, who is partially paralyzed, suffered cuts and bruises, a seizure and a concussion after authorities say she was strangled and struck in the head, the Seattle Times reported.

Upon signing the new legislation, Gov. Jay Inslee declared:

“We will not be complicit in the Trump administration’s depraved efforts to break up hard-working immigrant and refugee families.”

But on Monday, a court overruled a lower court’s decision that would’ve forced an abortion on a mentally disabled woman.

I can hardly imagine anything more terrible than the state forcing people at point of gun to undergo knives at medical facilities. Does that not sound reminiscent of 1930’s Germany?

The initial ruling claimed abortion was “in the best interests” of the woman.

The reasons for the turnover weren’t given, but they’ll be made known at a later time.

The anonymous developmentally disabled woman — who’s a Roman Catholic — reportedly possesses the mental capacity of a 6- to 9-year-old.

In response to the initial ruling, nearly 130,000 people signed a petition asking the government to step in in order “to prevent this gross injustice being inflicted by the State on this family and ensure this woman is not forced to have an abortion.”

Scottish Bishop John Keenan of the Diocese of Paisley told the Catholic News Agency the lower court’s action “[introduced] a dangerous new development in the overreach of the power of the state over its citizens.”

Bishop John Sherrington decried the infringement “upon her human rights” as well as ““the right of her unborn child to life in a family that has committed to caring for the child.”

In the lower court ruling, Justice Nathalie Lieven defended herself thusly:

“I am acutely conscious of the fact that for the State to order a woman to have a termination where it appears that she doesn’t want it is an immense intrusion. I have to operate in [her] best interests, not on society’s views of termination. … I think she would like to have a baby in the same way she would like to have a nice doll.”

The pregnant woman, her mother, and a caretaker fought in court for her right to have her baby.

She is 22 weeks pregnant.
