2) I confirmed with Heshmat first, of course, who's spent the over a decade (all the way through Obama and the Mullah's love affair) tracking and exposing these jackasses, who still feign innocence even as they try to provide PR cover for the Mullahs
3) See, it goes back to the old rule. Liberals accuse you of what they themselves are guilty of. In this case, they've spent 2 years accusing Trump and conservatives of having a cyber army of Russian trolls supporting and promoting him.
1) Industrial self-censorship. The killbox of creativity, free thinking, and ideas. The graveyard of free expression.
2) When a creativity driven industry is besieged by exterior and interior calls to self-regulate, self-police, and self-asphyxiate, that industry is driven to a slow prolonged death.
3) To compare it to cancer isn’t too far off the mark. Cancer is the growth of abnormal destructive tissue that eats away at the host body. An industry’s drive to censor itself is that same style of abnormal destructive growth that chews at the foundations of the industry.
1) This isn't one incident of rudeness. This is a history of Acosta acting like a complete jackass. Shoving an intern away so he could continue on his rant against the President during a long press conference is just the straw that broke the camels back. Do I need to recap? Lets.
2) Acosta making a royal ass of himself during the signing of an agreement between Kim Jong Un and President Trump to help bring about denuclearization. REPEATED shouting of questions at inappropriate times. dailywire.com/news/31732/wat…
First SCOTUS ruling is in. Unanimous decision, with Kavanaugh not participating. As expected, the Supreme Court is doing the easy decisions first, and leaving the divisive ones for later in the SCOTUS season when they'll need Kavanaugh. supremecourt.gov/opinions/18pdf…
The ruling itself is a pretty simple one and is a good example of a lot of what the SCOTUS does. Codifying interpretations of laws. Here, two workers were fired from a fire department and sued under a law that prevents age discrimination in the workplace.
Initially it covered any commercial institutions with 20 or more employees, and was later amended to include all state institutions. As the fire department had less than 20 people, the fire department argued that they were thus exempt.
1) A model which is based on shit assumptions makes for a shit model.
First words uttered by my macroeconomics professor.
The Democrats are wrong and will be wrong tomorrow because their model is based on shit assumptions.
2) They assumed in 2017 when they first spoke of the Blue Wave that Trump would behave like every other politician ever. They assumed he would break promises, play ball with the establishment, depress his base.
Then Trump brought in his hatchet man @Scaramucci and cleaned house.
@Scaramucci 3) They assumed that Generic Democrat would be more popular than Generic Republican, and that they would have an edge they could exploit.
Then Trump turned the midterm elections into Generic Mob-loving Socialist Democrat vs Trump the Jobs Guy.
Jim Jordan are sitting on the couches in the oval office when Trump walks in. "Sup future speaker. Sup Wheels," he says nodding.
Jordan raises an eyebrow as Scalise busts out laughing and responding, "What's up Peach Cobbler."
2) "Hold up, hold up, Peach Cobbler? The hell?" Jordan asked confused.
"Oh, Donald and I made a bet," Scalise explained, "on who could leak a story CNN would run with. His was the two scoops of ice cream story. Mine was that Secret Service saw him fucking a peach cobbler."
3) They'd probably run the peach cobbler story now, dumb fuckers," Trump said chuckling as he sat across from them. "Anyways, down to business. What have you devious fuckers got for me?"
Blue collar Dems flipped to support Trump in droves in 2016.
The R registration numbers may be a reflection of this.
Perhaps the spike in early voting are D->R flips
@LarrySchweikart I mean, this WOULD be the most logical explanation for the 10-100k+ difference we’re seeing between the 2016 and 2018 numbers.
How Republicans vote didn’t change, just who is voting as a Republican changed.
@LarrySchweikart And that’s if people were bothering to change their party registration. Some of them may have hung onto being registered Democrats... only to see their preferred candidates usurped in primaries by an unhinged mob of millenials with their chosen socialists.
Sometimes I think of liberal elites with their drastically out of touch views on the rest of the country passing judgement from their New York rent controlled apartments dictating that the rest of America live by THEIR ideals no matter how much poverty and hardship it causes....
2) The Republicans have quadrupled their ground game. They’re outraising the Dems. Individual races may not be getting a lot, but the Republicans aren’t playing the individual races game. The GOP has adopted...
3) Think. How do you beat a party who’s stated goal is to retake the House? How do you counter a strategy which millionaires and billionaires are dumping tens of millions into individual races?
1) The media lies to us to push a narrative. We know this. Sometimes they lie by omission. Sometimes they lie straight up. But, they always lie, and they always do it to scare you. Most often, the lies to conservatives are that they're more alone than they really are.
2) People are inherently afraid of being alone. I would argue even the most devout hermits like the venerable Thomas Wictor ultimately do value at least small controlled bits of social interaction, even if its just speaking and knowing someone is hearing them.
3) This is why social media is so addicting to people, and why the leftists who run social media are so irredeemably fucking evil for implementing and using the tools to isolate and throw people off of social media.
Rewind back to October 7, 2016. The Access Hollywood tape is revealed 2 days before Trump's second debate with Clinton. It had an entire month to gestate, an entire month for the MSM to hyperventilate over it.
2) First, let me introduce you to @DiversityAndCmx, aka Ya Boi Zach, aka Richard Meyer, who started a youtube channel to provide honest reviews of comics that were on the whole declining in quality and popularity. youtube.com/channel/UCrlzS…
3) I say honest reviews because, similar to one of the core issues of #GAMERGATE, comic book pros and 'mainstream' comic book journalists were in a rather incestuous relationship of providing exclusive material, interviews, etc in exchange for favorable reviews.
1) He’s providing the numbers and the data for why the GOP is about to win big in the midterms, and its all right and the numbers part of my brain says its right, but here’s why I believe the Dems are about to suffer an extinction level event on November 6th.
3) Seriously, that’s it. All they had to do was paint the right as crazy, and then just not be crazy themselves. Nice and simple. “Hey undecided voter. That guy is crazy about guns and talks about race all the time. We’re normal not offensive at all. Vote for us.”
2) What is the humor? That Hillary Clinton still thinks she's relevant? Funny, but no, that's not the funniest aspect of it.
3) The thing that is so knee-slappingly hilarious is that Clinton, who lets be fair probably has a pretty good idea of where things are going for the Democrats, has just signaled exactly what those predicting the red tide in November have been saying.
"all who seek to ENCOURAGE and PROFIT from irregular migration." This is important. Remember, my hypothesis has been that cartels, in order to keep up the flow of migrants that provide them lucrative cashflows, slaves, and drug mules, pay the NGOs that promote illegal migration
2) Hard regulatory power is when you solve a problem by writing more laws, creating new agencies, essentially the raw expansion of government power where it didn't exist before.
3) This is a favorite solution of Democrats and other such authoritarians. Examples of hard regulatory power is Obamacare, Cash for Clunkers, the creation of the CFPB, the auto bailout and placement of czars in companies etc.
@Styx666Official 2) One of his primary platforms is the modernization of the post office as a way to combat the abusiveness of internet tech giants.
@Styx666Official 3) Essentially, his argument is that the Post Office’s intention was the creation of a means of communication that guaranteed the first amendment. Two people communicating by letter without interference, censorship, etc.
1) Twitter's blatant bias and attempts to warp reality in 3 simple tweets. First: Twitter suspends accounts 'smearing Jamal Khashoggi' IE revealing through HIS OWN ARTICLES AND TWEETS that he was pro-Hamas (a terrorist group) and an advocate of the Muslim Brotherhood (same)
2) Jamal Cashdongle and Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal are business partners, and at one point Jamal Catsdingleberry was chosen to head one of Prince Al-Whatweed's media enterprises gulfnews.com/news/gulf/qata…
