Robert Hockett Unwillingness To Tell The Truth — Tucker Carlson of Fox News is one of the better interviewers and on Friday (Feb. 8), he sold pompous Cornell professor Robert Hockett enough rope to hang himself.
Hockett seems to be one of the puppet masters of new socialist darling Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY14) who is being marketed as AOC, an abbreviation of her name.
Anyway, AOC released a bizarre manifesto on Feb. 5 calling for a Green New Deal in which she called for spending trillions to replace airplanes with trains, ban farting cows and provide “economic security to all who are unable or unwilling to work.”
Well Hockett sputtered she never said those thing and the phrase came from a “doctored document from someone other than us.”
It is truly amazing how easy it is for progressives to lie without shame.
Leaving aside the many contemporaneous reports of the phrase attributed to Ocasio-Cortez, there is an internet archive of it from her website. It can be found here.
Nick Sandmann Was A Hero In Washington — L. Lin Wood, the noted defamation attorney hired by Nick Sandmann, has created a video showing a lot of things left out of the reporting about athe confrontation between high school boys and practiced adult agitators at the Lincoln Memorial after the Jan. 19 pro life rally.
It’s 15 minutes long but it’s worth watching. Check it out. Nick actually is kind of a hero. He seems to be trying to tone things down despite the apparently premeditated provocations.
Here is a list of organizations and individuals that may have defamed or libeled Nick with false reporting and to whom documentation preservation letters have been sent.
ZeroHedge.com back on Jan. 12 carried a fascinating article on In-Q-Tel, an influential venture fund started in 1999 that sits on many Wall Street boards. It was instrumental in starting Google and Facebook.
Ryan Costello Globally Warm And Comfy — Ryan Costello, who represented Pennsylvania’s once-Republican 6th Congressional District until his quitting in 2018, has found a comfy and warm landing spot.
He is now managing director of Americans for Carbon Dividends, which is pushing for something called the Baker-Shultz Carbon Dividends Plan which will increase the cost of energy ostensibly to save the planet from burning up.
He had a column in the Jan. 7 Wall Street Journal which if you have a subscription can be read here.
Besides working class mechants using air conditioners, he also bemoans the existence of the Second Amendment and immigration laws.
Hey, who needs social justice warriors when you have Ryanos?
Anyway, Costello’s long-time friend and bosom-buddy enabler is Val DiGiorgio who chaired the Chester County GOP when Costello was a rising star.
His tenure as county chairman saw a once Republican stronghold turn Democrat. His tenure as state chairman has been similarly spectacular.
Of course, we can’t be too hard on him. Being party chairman is just his hobby. His day job is being the “contact” for Stradley Ronon’s Government and Political Affairs Division. Stadley Ronon can be fairly described as a full-service political fixing firm. Services Val’s division has boasted of providing include “creating and shepherding major tax legislation for the mutual fund industry”; “lobbying for proposed rules and regulations on behalf of the insurance industry;” and “lobbying for congressional appropriations for public safety, health care and bio-tech clients.”
Val still has his defenders in the GOP. We’d like to ask them — with Tucker Carlson sincerity — how exactly can DiGiorgio represent the Republican rank and file and Stradely Ronon? Whose side would DiGiorgio must likely take in a conflict, the Republican rank and file or a Stradely Ronon client?
Happy Kwanzaa Or Torture Women Day — Today, Dec. 26, is Kwanzaa, a holiday based on hate and brutality cooked up in 1966 to ferment anger and division arguably by the FBI itself.
The official founder is Ron Karenga who now calls himself Maulana Ndabezitha Karenga.
Karenga was convicted in 1971 of brutally torturing female followers. He forced — or oversaw the forcing — of water and detergent down a woman’s throat. He held a hot soldering iron against a woman’s face and pushed it in her mouth. He squeezed a woman’s toe in a vise. He hit them with toasters and stripped them naked and beat them with electric cords.
He served four years in a California prison.
He now chairs the Africana Studies Department at California State University, Long Beach.
You can’t make this stuff up. Sick and evil people get way too much respect and have way too much authority in our country. This must change.
And only stupid or corrupt people celebrate Kwanzaa.
Trump Syria Riddle Me This — Conventional American forces landed in Syria in March 2017, to crush the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
Airstrikes and Special Forces engagements had been occurring against the Jihadis since September 2014 but they were generally ineffective and by December 2015 ISIS was in control of territory containing 8 million persons.
When President Trump took office, though, things got real. By December 2017 ISIS was crushed — at least in Iraq and Syria.
Virtue Signalers Arabian Hypocrisy — Mohammed bin Salman, who is Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, has been solidly implicated in the Oct. 2 murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and President Trump is turning a blind eye.
Trump points out that it is America first and that the Iranian mullahs — Arabia’s mortal enemy — are the real threat. He also says the Arabian oil production is nice.
As expected, the famously inconsistent virtue signalers are outraged.
“I think that’s one of the most amoral statements any president of the United States has ever uttered,” said Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA).
Richard North Patterson on Yahoo calls President Trump an accessory to Khahoggi’s murder.
So where were these people when Obama was propping up the oppressive mullahs? They were defending him. They defended Obama on Cuba, and on Venezuela and on Libya. They defended him on the Muslim Brotherhood.
Do we even have to mention Hillary and Benghazi and how they protected her?
Hey have you heard of Meng Hongwei? Of course not. He is a Chinese politician who was president of Interpol until Oct. 7. He was forced to resign by Chinese authorities and then disappeared. It has been revealed he is in custody in the PRC. His wife is upset about.
Nobody else seems to be.
The virtue-signalers, though, are upset about President Trump’s hardline with the Chinese.
Twitter Hypocritical H8 Site — We published a post Nov. 5 celebrating the return to the internet of free-speech defender Gab.
Gab, a Twitter alternative, was kicked off the web by its hosting provider Joyent on Oct. 29 for having allowed Robert Bowers to post. Bowers murdered 11 persons two days before during Shabbat services at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. He also wounded seven others, including four police officers.
Anyway outrage ensued; Gab was removed and virtue was signaled.
Which brings us to the latest regarding Twitter. Saudi prince and billionaire Alwaleed bin Talal was a major investor in Twitter. In 2015, he owned 34.9 million shares in it which put him ahead of CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey.
Alwaleed was arrested in the Kingdom on Nov. 4, 2017 and held for three months with freedom coming as part of a financial deal with the higher ups in the Saudi family.
What was the deal? Did it involve something with Twitter? Did it involve something leading to the Oct. 2 death at the Saudi embassy in Turkey of his friend journalist Jamal Kashoggi?
Soon after Kashoggi’s brutal death it was revealed that Saudi Arabia has created a massive Twitter “troll army” to sway public opinion especially in the Mideast.
And today (Nov. 7) it was reported that journalist Turki Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Jasser was tortured to death in a Saudi jail for criticizing the ruling family via a secret Twitter account. How did the tyrants learn of the account? Via spies at Twitter’s regional headquarter in Dubai.
How many Saudi spies have infiltrated Twitter? How much do they interfere with our elections? Sounds like a dangerous H8 site to us. Perhaps Twitter should be banned from the web.
That last sentence was sarcasm but it illustrates the poison of political correctness and the hypocrisy of virtue-signaling double standards.
The free speech social networking alternative to Twitter was kicked off the web by hosting provider Joyent on Oct. 29 after it was revealed that Pittsburgh synagogue massacre suspect Robert Bowers was a poster on the site.
An example of Bowers’ postings is to the right.
The Oct. 27 massacre left 11 dead and seven wounded, including four police officers.
Anyway, outrage occurred and GAB got blamed for inspiring the evil.
Cynics might say it was just an attempt by Silicon Valley powerbrokers to maintain an hegemony on the flow of information and squelch a potential competitor while it was still in the cradle. It is not as though Twitter never served as a conduit of hate, after all.
