Millionaires’ Choice For President: Hillary

 

 

Millionaires For Hillary

 

 

” Millionaires are sharply divided on their choice for the next President of the U.S., according to the second CNBC Millionaire Survey released today. Yet if a vote were held today, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would be the overall favorite among millionaire voters.

  The survey polled 500 people with investable assets of $1 million or more, which represents the top 8 percent of American households. According to the survey—a poll evenly split between Democrats, Republicans and Independents—Hillary Clinton is the top choice for 31 percent of millionaires, including 23 percent of Independent millionaires and 5 percent of Republican millionaires.

  Respondents got to choose among nine potential candidates in the survey: Clinton; Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.); Vice President Joe Biden; Governor Chris Christie (R-N.J.); Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas); Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.); former Governor Jeb Bush (R-Fla.); Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Governor Scott Walker (R-Wis.)

  Clinton gets the support of 38 percent of women millionaires and 27 percent of male millionaires. Among male millionaires of both parties, Hillary is the top choice, with 27 percent.”

 

     Aside from the obvious contradiction regarding the oft-repeated MSM meme of the GOP as the “party of the rich” this poll is notable for the fact that screaming socialist Bernie Sanders bests Fauxcahontas herself . LOL .

   The Dems continue to veer more sharply to the left than any NASCAR auto racecar .

Bloomberg Poll: Race Relations Have Worsened Under Obama

 

 

 

 

” December 7 (Bloomberg) — The Bloomberg Politics Poll, conducted December 3-5 for Bloomberg Politics by
Selzer & Co. of Des Moines, IA, is based on interviews with 1,001 U.S. adults ages 18 or older.

  Interviewers with Quantel Research of Ogden, Utah, contacted households with randomly selected landline and cell phone telephone numbers supplied by Survey Sampling International. Interviews were administered in English.

  Percentages based on the full probability sample may have a maximum margin of error of plus or minus 3.1
percentage points. This means that if this survey were repeated using the same questions and the same methodology, 19 times out of 20, the findings would not vary from the percentages shown here by more than plus or minus 3.1percentage points. Results based on smaller samples of respondents—such as by gender or age—have a larger margin of error. Responses were weighted by age and race to reflect the general population based on recent census data.

In This Season Of Love And Fellowship The Democrats Feel The Need To Preach Hate And Make Money At The Same Time

 

Here is the latest Tweet from @TheDemocrats , hawking their Christmas wares …

 

 

Dems Hate Tea Parties

 

 

 

 

 The responding tweets are wonderfully instructive of the public’s feeling towards an official political party’s embrace of hatred as a “party value” and must be read . It would appear that there are much more right thinking people visiting the page than hate-filled dems , and rightly so . 

 

 

 

Dem Twits

 

 

 

    The “hate is not a family value” crowd has once again demonstrated their hypocrisy for all the world to see . The “Christmas gift” in question is pictured below :

NY Times Reporter Gets “@ThePeoplesCube” Twitter Account Suspended

The People’s Cube Account Gets Suspended On Twitter

 

 

Twitter_Suspended_Bad_Tweet.jpg

 

 

 

” Around 6:30pm Tuesday evening (Dec. 2, 2014), our account on Twitter @ThePeoplesCube that has over 5,000 followers became disabled. Our inquiry resulted in the following discovery.

  Remember Julie Bosman, the New York Times journalist, who on Nov. 24 published the location of Darren Wilson’s home, welcoming visits by the rioters and the Black Panthers? Well, on Nov. 26 we responded by Tweeting her and her co-author’s mobile and work phone numbers. Others have also published her home address after which she reportedly received a few COD pizza deliveries.

  Julie Bosman is now apparently contacting Twitter demanding to remove all instances of her personal information posted by others. This results in some of the “offending” accounts being selectively suspended because Twitter Rules forbid disclosing other people’s personal info. The same rules, of course, do not apply to the New York Times, whose editors continue to defend the publication of Darren Wilson’s address.

It turns out that some addresses are more equal than others. And so are concerns for individual safety: outing the location of an innocent man who faces death threats from a violent mob is commendable, but outing the phone numbers of a journalist who did that, and who isn’t under any real threat, is a violation of privacy rules and will get you suspended faster than you can say “progressive chauvinism.” “

“Hands Up” Congressional Hypocrites All Voted For Police State

Four Members Of Congress Put Their Hands Up In Solidarity With Ferguson Protesters, None Voted To Limit Police Militarization

 

 

 

 

 

” Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, in August. Protests over the shooting yielded a militarized response from police. Renewed protests continued in October and again after a grand jury declined to indict Darren Wilson, the officer who shot Brown. The Brown shooting may have been a flash point for civil rights protesters. It’s also provided an opportunity for politicians to attach themselves to the highly publicized incident and score political points for themselves.

  Yesterday, for example, four members of Congress raised their hands on the House Floor to “show solidarity with the protesters” in Ferguson. Those four are Reps. Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Tex.), and Al Green (D-Tex.). All four voted AGAINST an amendment in June that would’ve limited the transfer of military equipment from the Department of Defense to local police agencies.”

Hackers Reveal White , Male Bastion At Sony Pictures

Hacked Documents Reveal A Hollywood Studio’s Stunning Gender And Race Gap

 

 

 

 

” Sony Pictures Entertainment, one of the largest film studios in Hollywood, appears to have been the subject of a massive, devastating computer hack. The hack, which came to light last week, included leaked full-length versions of five upcoming Sony Pictures films, along with a trove of sensitive internal documents, and a hijacking of Sony Pictures’ corporate Twitter account.

  This morning, I received a link to a public Pastebin file containing the documents from an anonymous e-mailer, and have spent hours poring through some of them. I’ll spend more time in the days ahead. But one interesting tidbit caught my eye: a spreadsheet containing the salaries of more than 6,000 Sony Pictures employees, including the company’s top executives.

  One other observation to make about Sony Pictures’ top-paid executives is that they’re almost entirely white. From some quick Internet searching, fifteen of the seventeen appear to be Caucasian, one (Dwight R. Caines) appears to be African-American, and one (Man Jit Singh) appears to be South Asian. (I’ll update these numbers when and if I hear back from Sony Pictures.) In other words, unless I’m missing something, the upper pay echelon of Sony Pictures is 94 percent male, and 88 percent white. “

Jon Stewart On Emperor Obama … “It’s Good To Be The King”

Jon Stewart Calls Out Not-Emperor Obama’s Powerlust By Pointing Out Something He’s Overlooked

 

 

 

” Remember when President Obama, when asked about what he would do to “ensure more people aren’t being deported,” deferred by saying:

My job is to execute laws that are passed.

And… 

I’m the President of the United States. I’m not the emperor of the United States.

Jon Stewart remembers. And he’s noticed how the President’s latest words on the extent of his presidential powers don’t exactly square with his previous declaration that he is not “the emperor.”

I’m going to do what I can do through executive action.

It’s good to be the king. “

Mike Rowe Rebuts Liberal Fan’s Statement That “It Is Impossible To Be A Christian, And Vote Republican”

Liberal Asks Mike Rowe How Anyone Can Be A “Republican and Christian,” His Response Is EPIC

mike rowe

 

 

” Mike Rowe, former host of Dirty Jobs, has come to be known as a salt of the earth type of guy. Someone the average Joe can relate to and who understands that true economic stimulation comes from folks working hard for their income and living within their means. 

  Apparently, Rowe can add culturally savvy marketing expert and dispenser of wisdom to his resume after completely owning a rather obnoxious liberal who was attempting to commandeer his Facebook page to promote his book in a rather unsavory manner.

  Rowe’s response is simply epic.

  From Mad World News:

Jim Green: It is ALARMING when we do the demographic post mortem on this election, because it is probable that it was decided by our RACISTS–voting against President Obama, who wasn’t on the ballot—that gave the Republicans their election wins—OUR GREED AND IGNORANCE, Amazon.com

Jim Green: Why is the media avoiding that we have a U.S. Senate bought and paid for by the Koch Bros/1%–and what they want for their dollar is to cut THEIR taxes [for pure GREED], and cut regulations to increase the bottom line [for pure GREED]….in short “OUR GREED AND IGNORANCE” [Amazon] ruled the day

Jim Green: Why on Earth would ANYONE vote Republican? A reptile has more decency than the Republicans in Congress! Only an odious toad would pass Ryan’s budget or gut Food Stamps—and these depraved snakes made them THEIR HIGHEST PRIORITY! If only one child in America goes hungry because of the Republican’s War on Children it explains why—IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO BE A CHRISTIAN, AND VOTE REPUBLICAN, Amazon/Kindle

 

 

Here’s Mr. Rowe’s response via his official Facebook page:

Hi there, Jim

  Greetings, from somewhere over Colorado. It appears you’re still trying to sell some books on my Facebook page. Personally, I haven’t read them, and based on your marketing strategy, I suspect I’m probably not alone. Since part of your approach seems to involve me, I thought perhaps I might offer you some unsolicited marketing advice. I hope it’s not too presumptuous, but these tips have served me well over the years, and I can’t help but think you and your marketing team might benefit from their immediate implementation.

  1. Consider starting off each blurb with a friendly salutation. In my experience, a little cordiality goes a long way, especially when you’re trying to persuade someone to give you money.

  2. Think about addressing your audience as something other than “racists,” “reptiles,” and “toads.” I get that you want to be provocative, but if your goal is to sell your book, a number of well-known studies have proven it’s best not to insult your potential customers.

  3. Reconsider your commitment to caps and exclamation points. These are excellent choices when warning people about a fire, a volcanic eruption, an ebola outbreak, or a looming tsunami. But I’m afraid their use in the context of a book sale implies a level of urgency that may exist only in your mind. If you really want to persuade thoughtful people that Christians can’t vote for Republicans and remain Christian, you’ll need to appear credible – not hysterical. Lower case should work just fine.

  4. Consider limiting each blurb to a single entry. When you post the identical screed four times in a row, it looks very much like a broken record sounds. This will lead people to conclude that you’re either a) inept at posting, or b) deliberately obnoxious. Neither conclusion is likely to lead to a sale. Remember, most people see posts like yours as small piles of vomit that they can quickly step around. But when the same vomitus post appears multiple times, you force my friends here to slosh through a virtual lake of spew. Ironically, this will not only make more people like you even less, it will decrease the odds that someone who might actually share your world view will feel inclined to purchase your book. (I’ve deleted all of your redundant posts from this morning, but left the original. You’re welcome.)

  5. Regarding your overall claim, I’m not an authority on Republicans or Christians, but last I checked, America is still populated by plenty of both. Unless you wish to alienate a majority of the country, you might consider something a tad more conciliatory. Something like – “There is no “R” in Jesus – But There’s G-O-P in Gospel!”

  Finally, with respect to your “challenge,” I’m not a registered Republican, but from time to time, I have voted like one. If you really want to know why, ask me in a fashion that incorporates the aforementioned steps, and I’ll try to explain it to you.

In the meantime, GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR BOOKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mike

PS. As you can see, the captain has given me some plastic wings. So clearly, I know what I’m talking about.

  It seems Mr. Green was thoroughly schooled and is no doubt curled up in the fetal position somewhere sucking his thumb.

  Rowe once again manages to completely annihilate this liberal nonsense without coming off as a jerk. It’s a rare gift, and it looks like America’s favorite blue collar hero is putting it to good use. “

Uber-Green Hypocrite Commutes By Yacht Burning Four Times The Fuel Of His Limo

Dem Mega-Donor Commutes To Work On Gas-Guzzling Yacht

 

   More “Green” hypocrisy rears it’s head with this example of “do as I say , not as I do” … ride the bus peons , while I commute on this :

 

 

Simons' boat 'Elan' / Lachlan Markay

 

 

 

” Here’s the trip mapped out by Marine Traffic: “

 

simons-commute

 

 

 

” A major Democratic donor and the head of a foundation that finances some of the nation’s leading environmentalist groups commutes to and from work on a gas-guzzling luxury yacht, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.

  At around 8 a.m. every morning, Nathaniel Simons leaves Berkeley, Calif., where he lives, aboard the Elan. The 1,550-horsepower, 54-foot yacht drops him off at the Port of San Francisco, a block from the offices of the Meritage Group, the hedge fund management company he leads.

  About seven hours later, the Elan returns to San Francisco, picks up Simons, and brings him back across the Bay, weaving between Alcatraz and Treasure Island before docking in the Berkeley Marina.”

 

 

 

   According to Marine Traffic records , the trip takes Simon about 18 minutes from dock to dock , while Bing maps shows the drive to be approximately 11 miles , also with an 18 minute travel time .

   The average fuel economy for a Cadillac limousine is between 12 – 14 MPG , which I think is very optimistic but for our calculations we’ll use the 12 mpg figure to simplify the math . That means the average commute to work for Mr Simon would burn one gallon of gas each way for a daily total fuel consumption , assuming two round trips per day , of four gallons .

   The yacht on the other hand , even at a modest cruise of 5 knots which is supported by the Marine Traffic data , Simon’s boat is probably consuming between 10 and 15 gallons per hour . For the uninitiated yachts don’t get miles per gallon , they are rated at gallons per hour to hide the sticker shock .

   But seriously , assuming the yacht makes two 18-20 minute round trips per day , that means that it is under way for approximately 80 minutes , burning let’s call it 12 gallons per hour . That gives us a daily fuel burn of 16 gallons or $80 which is four times the cost , in both dollars and CO2 output as the limousine ride .

   Bear in mind now that both trips take about equal time so this is more about ego than anything else . And hypocrisy .

 

 

 

” While he’s not managing billions in hedge fund assets or commuting over the Bay, Simons is bankrolling Democratic candidates, party organs, outside spending groups, and environmental nonprofits.

  Simons has given more than $300,000 to political campaigns and interest groups during the 2014 election cycle. With the exception of a pair of $2,600 contributions to Sens. Susan Collins (R., Maine) and Lindsay Graham (R., S.C.), every penny went to Democrats.

  His 2014 political giving far exceeds aggregate limits on campaign contributions overturned by the Supreme Court this year in a decision heavily criticized by Democrats.

  Simons’ largest financial contributions to the political left have come not through campaign contributions but by way of the tens of millions of dollars that his foundation funnels from overseas financial institutions to major left-wing groups in the United States.

  He and his wife Laura run the Sea Change Foundation, which used its $134 million in assets last year to bankroll groups including the Center for American Progress, the Sierra Club, the Natural Resource Defense Council, the League of Conservation Voters, and the Energy Foundation.”

Follow The Money … Much “Mainstream Journalism” Is Funded By Leftwing Dough

Did You Hear The Koch Brothers Just Gave A Million Bucks To NPR To Cover Healthcare?

 

 

 

” No, you didn’t hear about that Koch gift to NPR, because it never happened. 

  But now that I have your attention, let me ask you whether you heard that a different funder, who also has a strong agenda on healthcare, just gave $1.3 million to NPR to report on this topic?

  No, you probably didn’t hear about that gift either, by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation—a grant that has caused zero controversy. 

  Come to think of it, I didn’t recall any controversy when RWJF gave National Public Radio $5.6 million to report on healthcare between 2008 and 2011, during a period when this was among the most politicized of all topics. 

  You’d think that somebody would at least have raised an eyebrow, given that RWJF is a strong proponent of the Affordable Care Act, as well as other healthcare policy positions on the progressive side of the spectrum.

  God bless that foundation, if you ask me. But as a thought experiment, imagine if the Koch brothers had given the same amount of money to NPR to cover healthcare. 

  People would have gone nuts. “

Cato Reports On Our “Gold-Plated” Government “Civil Servants”

Government Gold-Plating

 

 

 

 

 

” Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) released his annual Wastebook this past week. It contains a laundry list of doozies. The U.S. government’s gold-plating operations included $190,000 to study compost digested by worms, $297 million for the purchase of an unused mega blimp, and $1 million on a Virginia bus stop where only 15 people can huddle under a half-baked roof. These questionable (read: absurd) expenditures only represent the tip of the iceberg.

  Just consider the following: the Speaker of the House currently receives an annual salary of $223,500, and will receive a payment of roughly that amount, depending on the years of service, for life. An annual payment of this magnitude amounts to about five times the average annual wage in the United States. But that’s not all. For those who have had different positions in Congress, their retirements can be augmented. For example, Nancy Pelosi will not receive $223,500 for life, but roughly double that. Why? Because she is a member of Congress, currently the House of Representatives’ Minority Leader, and a retired Speaker of the House. For purposes of computing retirement pay, Congress adds and accumulates. They do not net.”

Left’s “War On Women” Card Going The Way Of “Race Card” As NYers Laugh At Dem Candidate Who Tries To Invoke It

Watch New York Voters Laugh At A Female Democrat For Invoking The ‘War On Women’

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The “War on Women,” as a political message, has been relatively effective for Democratic candidates even in spite of its intellectual emptiness and its fabricated premises. But the attack on Republicans as hostile to women’s health issues have thus far been largely successful, in no small part due to a credulous and uncurious media which has repeated them uncritically. That has not been the case this cycle.

  Republicans deserve most of the credit for dismantling this baseless and cynical political attack; the most effective of which has been a stance adopted by candidates like Cory Gardner and Thom Tillis, among others, which advocates for increased access to contraception via over-the-counter methods. It is impossible to perpetuate the fiction that liberal groups like Planned Parenthood want more access to birth control when they oppose a plan to increase access to birth control.”

“Tolerant” Left Update: Study Says Liberals More Likely To “Unfriend” Over Politics

Liberals Are More Likely To Unfriend You Over Politics — Online And Off

 

(Pew Research)

 

” Data from the Pew Research Journalism Project shows that conservatives are less likely to have their views challenged on social media — but liberals are more likely to block or unfriend someone online because they disagree with something they have posted.

  Those that Pew describes as “consistent conservatives” are twice as likely as the average Facebook user to say that posts about politics on the social network are “mostly or always” in line with their own views, according to a survey the organization performed this spring — with 47 percent saying their views dominate the conversations they see.

  However, that doesn’t mean liberals necessarily like all of the ideas they see. Consistent liberals were the most likely group to block or unfriend someone because they disagreed with their political postings, with 44 percent saying they had “hidden, blocked, defriended, or stopped following someone” on Facebook due to their political postings. Only roughly one-third (31 percent) of consistent conservatives had done the same — although this might be attributable to lower levels of ideological diversity in their online ecosystem. “

 

 

(Pew Research)

 

 

” Liberals were also more likely to drop a friend in real life over politics. Nearly a quarter, or 24 percent, of consistent liberals told Pew that have stopped talking to or being friends with someone over politics, compared to 16 percent of consistent conservatives.”

” It’s gained more than 55,000 followers since starting on 13 September and administrators told news.com.au they wanted to show the side of Iran that doesn’t get seen on the news.

“ We love all Iranians, rich and poor doesn’t mean anything to us. All people are equal, our object is to show the world the good side of Iran-Tehran which I think everybody should see before they judge us.”

“ We are in no now way political and we are just showing how beautiful Tehran and people from Tehran are. Especially with all the bad press in Middle East currently we want the world to see Tehran is nothing like that.” “

   Don’t get us wrong , we have nothing against earned wealth , but it is more than a tad hypocritical of the parents of these kids to espouse hatred of the west while at the same time basking in the very same luxury that the western lifestyle has to offer .

 The article and pictures also make the reader aware of the fact that Obama blew a great opportunity by failing to support the Iranian youth and their protests at the beginning of his presidency as the young people of the country , along with many adults , obviously desire the worldly goods and lifestyle of the west .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Extremist Mom’s Demand Action Members Calling For SWATting Of Gun Owners

Moms Demand SWATting

 

 

 

 

 

” You see a GunFilth waving its penis substitute, exit, call police. Armed robbery in progress.” So wrote Twitter user “Little Black Dog” on September 13 of this year.

  The injunction was a particularly colorful one, but the idea behind it, alas, is not as uncommon as one might wish. “I see you #opencarry with a gun in public,” a man named “joe villa” threatened earlier this week, “i’m calling the cops. psycho behaving erratic. make your day.” A translation for the more literate among us: “The law be damned; exercise your rights under the law and I’ll threaten your life.”

“ Take a look through the comments threads on Moms Demand Action’s Facebook page,” Bearing Arms’s Bob Owens tells me, “and you’ll see a lot of this.” “Not,” he clarifies,

  from the leaders of the group. But it is a mindset popular among the followers. On there, on the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence — ironically — and on GunFreeZone.net, you’ll notice commenters advocating that people call the police and exaggerate what is going on, hoping to get the cops to come in.

  A cursory trawl through those sites reveals that Owens is correct in his assessment. The lion’s share of the commenters are innocuous and cordial — nothing more than law-abiding Americans participating in civil society. There are peaceful promises not to shop at Target or Kroger or Chili’s unless those businesses explicitly prohibit customers from bringing their firearms in with them; there are vehement-but-idle suggestions that anybody who wishes to carry a gun in public must have something seriously wrong with him; and there are the usual ignorant claims that shootings in America are on the increase (in fact, the opposite is true). But, every 20 comments or so, one sees exactly what Owens describes. Reacting to a photograph of a man standing at a checkout with a handgun holstered upon his hip, mom-who-demands-action Joyce Ward asks, “Why weren’t the police called immediately?” And “why,” Ward continues, “wasn’t he shot by the police for having a weapon”? ”   

 

 

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the term , SWATting is:

 

 

” Swatting is the tricking of any emergency service (via such means as hoaxing a 9-1-1 dispatcher) into dispatching an emergency response based on the false report of an on-going critical incident. Episodes range from large to small, from the deployment of bomb squads, SWAT units and other police units and the concurrent evacuations of schools and businesses to a single fabricated police report meant to discredit an individual as a prank or personal vendetta. While it is a misdemeanor or a felony in the USA in and of itself to report any untruth to law enforcement, swatting can cause massive disruption to the civil order and the public peace by the hoaxed deployment of police and other civic resources such as ambulances and fire departments. The term derives from SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics), a highly specialized type of police unit.”

 

 

 

   We guess that the irony of those who demand an end to gun violence calling on police to gun down law-abiding citizens is lost on these cretinous trolls . Read Charles Cooke’s entire piece at NRO

Despite the huge sums still being raked in by such superstars as Robert Downey Jr. (his $75 million comes from his 7 percent, first-dollar slice of Iron Man 3, as well as his $12 million HTC endorsement deal) and Sandra Bullock (a 15 percent, first-dollar deal on Gravity and about $10 million more for her summer hit The Heat), most actors are feeling a definite squeeze, especially those in the middle.

” If you’re [a big star], you’re getting well paid,” says one top agent, “but the middle level has been cut out.” Sometimes with a hacksaw. Leonardo DiCaprio made $25 million (including bonuses) for The Wolf of Wall Street, while co-star Jonah Hill got paid $60,000. Granted, that’s an extreme example — Hill offered to do the part for scale (and got an Oscar nomination for his trouble). “

 

 

 

    The Hollywood Reporter provides us with an in-depth look at who makes what in the entertainment industry from the top “stars” to the extras on the set , and everyone in between . Very much worth your time if you are sick of hearing from the celebrity asshats how we need to combat wage inequality …

    Of course the wages provided for the different types of employment in Hollyweird are a reflection of the free market in action but one wonders why , if the “invisible hand” is good enough for them , why isn’t it good enough for the rest of us .

Ebola Yes, Bagpipes No

 

 

 

 

” Thomas Eric Duncan has the distinction of being America’s Patient Zero – the first but not the last person to develop Ebola symptoms in the United States.

  Is he a US citizen? No, he’s Liberian.

  Is he a resident of the United States? No, he landed at Washington’s Dulles Airport on September 20th, in order to visit his sister and having quit his job in Monrovia a few weeks earlier.

  So he’s a single unemployed man with relatives in the US and no compelling reason to return to his native land. That alone is supposed to be cause for immigration scrutiny.

  In addition, visitors from Liberia have the fifth highest “visa overstay rate” in the United States. That’s to say, they understand very clearly that all that matters is getting in. Once you’re in, they’ll never get you out.

  And, of course, Liberia is one of the hottest spots of Ebola’s West African “hot zone”. It’s been all over the front pages, except apparently in The US Customs & Border Protection Staff Newsletter, where it rated a solitary “News In Brief” item at the foot of page 37.

  Just to give you an example of how hard-assed the boneheads of America’s immigration bureaucracy can be when they want to:

  The legendary Gord Sinclair, longtime news director of CJAD in Montreal, had a ski place near Jay in northern Vermont, and he invited his engineer on the show to come down and visit him. “What’s the purpose of your visit?” asked the agent at the small rural border post.

” Oh, just a relaxing weekend at my boss’ place,” said Gord’s colleague affably, and then chortled, “although I don’t know if it’ll be that relaxing. He’ll probably have me out in the yard chopping wood all day.”

  So the immigration agent refused him entry on the grounds that he would be working illegally in the United States.”

PC Double Standards For Physical Fitness At Secret Service Put President At Risk

These Charts Show How Gender Bias May Have Played A Role In The White House Secret Service Breaches

 

 

SS Double Standards

 

 

 

” Even MSNBC and their Democratic guests agreed: Julia Pierson was not the right person for the job, and her gender may have played a bigger role than it should have in getting her hired.

  But looking past the former Secret Service director, who resigned on Wednesday, and examining the people who make up the Secret Service may give even more insight to whether political correctness was too overzealous within the organization.

  Reportedly, White House intruder Omar Gonzalez “overpowered” the agent who was stationed just inside the front White House door, The New York Times reports.

  The NY Times story initially included the fact that that agent was a “female,” but, as the Weekly Standard reports, that fact was later edited and omitted.

  And it might now be clear why.

  The Secret Service’s own web site includes a flier detailing the physical standards that its agents must meet to be eligible for the service – but these charts reveal a surprising tidbit of information: women and men doing the same job are not held to the same standards of physical fitness. “

Must Read: Why The Liberals Hates The Right : “Conservatives See Liberals As Misguided; Liberals See Conservatives As Evil.”

The Top Three Reasons Why Liberals Hate Conservatives

 

 

 

 

” Are you a conservative, a libertarian, or a Republican? Have you ever been verbally assaulted by someone on the political left with a ferocity you didn’t quite understand? Have you seen it happen to friends and colleagues, or watched in horror as the media establishment does it to a public figure?

  Of course you have. At some point or other, nearly everyone on the political right has witnessed or been the victim of an attack designed not to elucidate facts, but rather to paint him or her as a villain. “

 

 

Mr Cook continues …

 

 

” The other painfully incessant canard is the notion that people on the right “hate the poor.” In fact, the evidence shows the opposite. Conservatives are more charitable than liberals by fairly significant margins, even when you adjust for a variety of factors. Rich, middle-class, and poor conservatives are all more charitable than their liberal counterparts.  It’s not that conservatives are wealthier overall, either—liberal households are 6% wealthier on average. (I bet you never heard that little fact on MSNBC.) It is also not that conservatives are more religious: new data indicate that secular conservatives give more than secularliberals. These conservatives are voluntarily helping the poor with their own money, in greater numbers than their liberal counterparts in every cohort. Conservatism is a greater predictor of charity.

  Leftists (they hardly deserve the term “liberal”), by contrast, are more “charitable” with other people’s money. Leftist A votes for Politician B to take money (by force) from Taxpayer C to give it to Recipient D. A and D give more support and power to B, who continues to take more and more from C, in a perverse and ever-increasing form of economic bondage. Then, A, B, and D get together and say that C hates the poor. Lather, rinse, repeat.

  But we are getting dragged into the weeds here. We could go on and on refuting fact after fact, but the facts are unimportant. The leftist is creating a narrative. As a marketing guru will tell you, Facts tell, but stories sell. It’s a lesson the leftist has learned well. “

Leonardo DiCaprio’s Hypocritical Property Empire

Big Green Radicals Takes DiCaprio To Task For His Environmental Hypocrisy

 

 

 

 

” Leonardo Dicaprio is a self-proclaimed environmentalist. He is an NRDC board member and has lent his name – and his voice – to numerous environmental causes over the years. But you wouldn’t know it by the way he accumulates property. He has bought three properties since February: a $10 million apartment in New York’s Greenwich Village, an $8 million apartment adjacent to his existing $4 million one in the city’s Battery Park, and a $5.2 million, six-bedroom, 1.34 acre mansion in Palm Springs. He also owns a large waterfront home in Malibu.

  Such excess has a majorly negative impact on the environment. According to the World Economic Forum, buildings contribute around 40 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions, consume huge amounts of natural resources, and are major solid waste and water pollution generators. Leo could live up to his and his organization’s high environmental standards for the rest of us if he were to simply cut down his property ownership. This would be a far easier lifestyle change than the ones he and his organization advocate for ordinary folks. For example, the NRDC calls for the country to move on from energy produced from coal and natural gas, despite the fact that this would cause electricity bills for everyday Americans to skyrocket. But apparently what’s good for the rest of us isn’t good enough for Leo himself.

  Environmentally burdensome property ownership is simply the latest example in a long line of environmental hypocrisy from Leo, who recently said that he’d like to take some time off from acting to “fly around the world doing good for the environment.” It is also just the latest example of hypocrisy from NRDC board members like Laurie David and Robert Redford, who demand clean energy for us, but like conventional energy for themselves. Redford owns three housesdrives SUVs, and regularly flies in private jets. But, unlike Leo, at least Redford has admitted to his hypocrisy. Leo remains walled in his glass houses.”
