"I don't have a problem with anyone being rich. I have a problem with people who cannot feel they are rich unless everyone else is made to be poor." -- Michael Rivero
An activist organization widely cited by leftist media outlets to support the claim that criticism of George Soros is anti-Semitic was exposed to have been funded by Soros himself.
The Institute for Strategic Dialogue is currently receiving funds from the Open Society Foundation, Soros’s political activism slush fund, Twitchy reported.
The ISG recently issued talking points in the form of a policy paper that attacked billionaire Elon Musk for observing similarities between Soros and Magneto, the arch-enemy of the X-Men in the Marvel Comics universe.
The despicable and corrupt Benjamin Crump suddenly deleted his tweet today smearing the New York City nurse who was victimized by a group of black men trying to steal a bicycle she’d just rented.
Crump left the tweet and video up for days but then suddenly deletes after this nurse’s lawyer shows up on Fox News.
Why? Because he made clear they were going to sue for defamation:
Efforts to promote adoption of the environmental, social and governance framework in investing, commonly termed ESG, have gained traction in recent years and have become the subject of pro- and anti-ESG legislation, yet the general public is no more familiar with ESG today than two years ago.
Thirty-seven percent of Americans currently report being “very” or “somewhat familiar” with ESG, unchanged from 36% in 2021. Another 22% today are “not too familiar,” while 40% are “not familiar at all.”
These findings are from a Gallup poll conducted April 3-25, in which respondents were told that ESG “includes factors like the record of a business on human rights, the environment, diversity or other social values” and that some people take these factors “into account when making decisions about buying products and services or investing.”
Well, if you thought the American Civil War ended back in 1865, you are apparently wrong. No less an authority than President Joe Biden, in a May 13th commencement speech to historically black Howard University’s graduates, told the overwhelmingly black students and their families that “The most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland is white supremacy. And I’m not saying this because I’m at a Black HBCU, I say it wherever I go.” Indeed, both Biden and his inert Attorney General Merrick Garland nee Garfinkel have delivered that same message on a number of occasions, but this was the first time it was employed in such a racially charged environment. It was clearly a pre-electoral call to arms against white people in America, placing government sanctioned targets on the backs of whites who are generally peacefully struggling to retain their communities, identities, religion, heritage and culture, all of which are being engulfed by the White House’s tidal wave of self-serving and politically motivated “woke” promotions.
Five days later, on the 18th, the Republican-led House Judiciary Committee and the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government released an 80 page report revealing that the FBI had deliberately miscategorized its investigations into the events surrounding the January 6th Capitol Hill violent demonstration to substantially inflate the numbers suggesting a dramatic increase in domestic terrorism in the United States. The GOP report, based largely on whistleblower testimony, stated that “whistleblowers assert that the FBI pressured agents to reclassify cases as domestic violent extremism (DVE), and even manufactured DVE cases where they may not otherwise exist, while manipulating its case categorization system to feign a national problem.” The FBI’s Washington Field Office deliberately categorized its Capitol disturbance cases to make the rise in DVE cases look more like a national problem than a one-time post-electoral incident.
The NAACP over the weekend issued a travel advisory for Florida, joining two other civil rights groups in warning potential tourists that recent laws and policies championed by Gov. Ron DeSantis and Florida lawmakers are “openly hostile toward African Americans, people of color and LGBTQ+ individuals.”
The NAACP, long an advocate for Black Americans, joined the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), a Latino civil rights organization, and Equality Florida, a gay rights advocacy group, in issuing travel advisories for the Sunshine State, where tourism is one of the state’s largest job sectors.
The warning approved Saturday by the NAACP’s board of directors tells tourists that, before traveling to Florida, they should understand the state of Florida “devalues and marginalizes the contributions of, and the challenges faced by African Americans and other communities of color.”
Dear readers and fellow economists, the Federal Reserve is treating a rise in prices from supply shocks and disruptions from the Covid lockdowns and sanctions against Russia, Iran, and other countries as if it were a monetary inflation. It is true that too much money is chasing too few goods and services, but the cause is supply shortages and not excess consumer demand.
This fact is obvious, but it is not acknowledged. We know that the lockdowns and sanctions stopped production, caused transportation problems, caused energy shortages, caused business failures, and disrupted supply chains.
We know that excess consumer demand in the US did not cause double digit inflation in Europe and some food prices in England to double. The inflation in the UK and Europe was caused by the Biden regime’s supply-disrupting sanctions and by their own Covid lockdowns.
A correct anti-inflation policy would be to remove the sanctions that restrict supply and the free movement of goods and services. The Federal Reserve’s higher interest rates simply suppress economic activity, thereby reducing supply, and results in higher prices.
Gilbert Doctorow takes on the Western disinformation campaign especially with regards to the fall of Bakhmut:
[I]t is these censorious states and the mass media that carry their messages with stenographic precision into print and electronic dissemination who are the ones that day after day feed disinformation to the public. It is cynically composed and consists of a toxic blend of ‘spin,’ by which is meant misleading interpretation of events, and outright lies.
The many months long battle for the provincial Donbas city of Bakhmut, or Artyomovsk as it is known in Russia, has been described variously from on high in Washington, London and Berlin. When the likely outcome was unclear, the defense of Bakhmut was called heroic and demonstrative of the brave fighting spirit of the Ukrainians.
Casualty figures issued by Kiev and then trumpeted from Washington suggested that the Russians were stupidly throwing away the lives of their fighting men by using WWI style human waves of attackers who were decimated by the defenders. Russian lives are cheap was the message. The fact that Russian artillery on site outnumbered and outperformed Ukrainian artillery by a factor of five or seven to one was freely admitted by the Western propagandists as they pleaded for increased supplies to Kiev. They, nonetheless, issued casualty reports for the Russians that inverted the force correlation. It was assumed, obviously with reason, that the public was too lazy or too uninterested to do the arithmetic.
For most of the past 75 years in the United States, the days around May 15 have seen celebrations of the anniversary of Israel’s creation. Pro-Israel marches, gushing articles breathlessly perpetuating myths about Israel’s “miraculous” creation and development, and, perhaps, an occasional mention of those Palestinians casting a shadow on it all, with their unreasonable hatred of the state.
It has been different recently, and especially so this year. Israel’s creation is still being celebrated in many corners, but the commemoration of the Nakba, the ongoing dispossession of and denial of rights to the Palestinian people, is getting more attention and consideration. This fact has not gone unnoticed by supporters of Israel.
The U.S. Air Force’s sole squadron of stealth bombers, the the 509th Bomb Wing based at Whiteman Air Force Base, has returned to operations, with the flight of one of its B-2 bombers on May 22 being the first by the squadron in over six months. An accident at Whiteman Air Force Base on December 10, 2022, was followed by reports three days later that the aircraft suffered damage after experiencing an “in-flight malfunction during routine operations” including an onboard fire. This followed a prior emergency landing in September 2021 which took another B-2 out of service, which brought the total size of the American stealth bomber fleet to just 18 airframes. The December 10 crash resulted in the closure of the airbase’s runway for over 10 days, with the B-2 fleet subsequently remaining grounded as part of a long safety pause. The B-2’s maintenance requirements are by many estimates the greatest in the world, with this resulting in exorbitant operational costs far higher than those envisaged when the aircraft began development. This and major overruns in production costs forced the Air Force to cut the fleet down to just 20 serial production airframes from an originally planned 120, with these airframes costing approximately $2 billion each.
A London theater has received widespread criticism for promoting one showing of a play which the venue urges White people not to attend.
The Theatre Royal Stratford East has organized a “Black Out” night on July 5 for the production of “Tambo & Bones,” a play described as a “racially charged metatheatrical satire.”
The play runs for a month during June and July, but on this date alone White people have been informed they are not welcome to attend.
A Manhattan college professor flipped out on a group of students who set up an information table opposing abortion inside the school building — cursing and tossing their pamphlets, video of the interaction shows.
Shellyne Rodriguez, an adjunct professor, told the pro-life students they were “triggering” her students by tabling inside Hunter College in Manhattan earlier this month.
The footage was posted to Twitter by Students for Life of America.
“You’re not educating s–t. This is f–king propaganda,” the art professor told the students tabling on May 2. “What are you going to do like anti-trans next?”
A male student behind the table calmly told her “I mean no, we’re talking about abortion” and said he was sorry about “triggering” her students.
Republicans seized on the accusations in Mr. Schweizer’s book, accusing Mrs. Clinton of supporting the interests of foundation donors as part of a quid pro quo.
Specifically, critics focused on the foundation’s receipt of large donations in exchange for supporting the sale of Uranium One, a Canadian company with ties to mining stakes in the United States, to a Russian nuclear agency. The deal was approved in 2010 by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States when Mrs. Clinton, as secretary of state, had a voting seat on the panel.
Mr. Schweizer’s research caught the eye of F.B.I. agents in Washington, who in 2016 opened a preliminary investigation based solely on “unvetted hearsay information” in the book, according to the final report by John H. Durham, the Trump-era special counsel who led an investigation into the bureau’s inquiry into possible ties between Mr. Trump’s campaign and Russia.
