If this man was not a billionaire, he would not be a problem.

Sue Soros, Charge Minions — A report is being circulated that anti-Trump protestors caused a man’s death by preventing his ambulance from reaching the hospital.

If this is true, then those who traffic blockage caused this to happen should be charged with manslaughter. Further, those funding these “protests” — and these riots are not grassroot — should be sued for every penny they have.

That means you George Soros. How can you not understand that blocking traffic is dangerous, cruel and irresponsible? You are hate-filled man and a blight on humanity.

Rich Riots After Trump Win

Rich Riots After Trump Win — The riots that have occurred after Donald Trump’s election are neither spontaneous nor grassroots. They started at the same time in major urban areas and are, obviously, orchestrated.

Rich Riots After Trump Win
Orange is his color.

Property has been damaged, people have been hurt and lives disrupted.

It is those one-percenters paying the orchestrators who have to be held most accountable.  Hopefully, Trump’s justice department is of this mind.

That’s right, George Soros, orange will be the new black.

Dilbert Shadow Banned Due To Trump Support

Dilbert Shadow Banned Due To Trump Support — Scott Adams, who pens the comic strip Dilbert, is not what one considers a typical right winger. However, he has come out for Donald Trump as many of us have because his opponent is a thief and liar, and because The Donald is not intimidated by political correctness and addresses obvious and consequential realities.

Dilbert Shadow Banned Due To Trump SupportThis exercise of Adam’s political rights has led to repercussions. He his been subject to pointless personal attacks by the self-proclaimed “tolerant and enlightened” but that goes with the territory of expressing an opinion.

More disgraceful and troubling is his “shadow banning” by Twitter. Shadow banning is banning a user from a web forum in such a way that he is unaware of the ban. It is a particularly sneaky and despicable form of censorship.

Adams learned of his banning when his many followers informed him they were not seeing his tweets. The ban has apparently been lifted after protests. That someone in authority at the failing company thought he could get away with it, however, shows why the company is failing.

Censoring political speech is never justice — social or otherwise.

Lushsux Hillary Mural Fixed

Lushsux Hillary Mural Fixed — Melbourne, Australia has apparently a loose policy on “edgy” street art so nobody complained when street artist Lushsux painted a naked mural of Donald Trump on a wall.

Nor did anyone complain when he painted a naked mural of his wife, Melania. The “I’m with her” tag on it was a nice touch, for what it’s worth.

Anyway, he painted a mural of Hillary in a skimpy swimsuit with dollar bills stuffed in it.

And we learned that Melbourne has a limit to its acceptance of “edginess”.

The city leaders deemed the mural contravened its gender equity policy and threatened action unless it was removed.

It appears the lesson, though, is don’t mess with Lushsux. His response was beautiful. See below and note the tag.

Google Filter Bubble

Google Filter BubbleGoogle Filter Bubble — Google creates a profile built on one’s browsing history — including places like Facebook and Youtube — to direct one’s searches using its product.

This is why people searching for the same word often end up with different first pages when using Google.

Google makes assumptions on what one might be looking for hence one might never find what one wants.

DuckDuckGo, its Paoli-based competitor that does not use tracking, explains it here.

By the way, did you see where Facebook is making news stories disappear that don’t match their political preference?

Yelp Billion Dollar Bully

Yelp Billion Dollar BullyA crowdfunded documentary depicting the consumer review site Yelp as a “billion dollar bully” is causing angst among the hipsters.

Yelp is a San Francisco-based firm founded in 2004 that allows customers to post online reviews of restaurants and businesses.

It’s hip, supports Obama, and is used and trusted by millennials. The problem is that it makes its obscene profits selling ads. The documentary claims that it withholds good reviews from businesses that don’t advertise while giving the bad reviews high exposure.

In other news regarding hypocrisy, the hipster news site BuzzFeed is being accused of running favorable stories regarding the Marriott hotel chain, which is a big advertiser.

Patrick Howley of Brietbart.com notes that BuzzFeed has been unremittingly hard on Donald Trump whose hotels compete with Marriott. We kind of think that might be stretching the point. How is BuzzFeed any different than Fox News in that regard?

Still Howley points out that BuzzFeed also pulled a piece criticizing the Monopoly board game, which is produced by BuzzFeed advertiser Hasbro, and also pulled an article that criticized ads for Dove soap, the subsidiary of a site advertiser.

The anti-corporate types sure seem to like corporate money.

Anyway, here is the trailer to Billion Dollar Bully:

James Foley Death Sparked Little Outrage

James Foley Death Sparked Little Outrage
James Foley, don’t let him be forgotten

The death of Cecil, a wild animal that survived by eating other wild animals, sparked hipster outrage around the world.

Piers Morgan, a talking head that once actually had a news show on CNN, advocated skinning alive the hunter who shot the Zimbabwe lion.

So, who remembers James Foley? Foley was a journalist who went to dangerous places to cover important stories. His beheading by ISIS was uploaded to YouTube on Aug. 19 last year specifically so his family could see it. There was no Twitter outrage by the hipster celebrities or the “social justice” college crowd.

Why? Unlike Minnesota dentists, ISIS fights back. Hipsters and “social justice” warriors, while they certainly enjoy the emotional jolts self-righteous outrage provides them, are not known for their courage.

Oh, and did you see where the impoverished nation of Zimbabwe is going to put up a statue of Cecil?

The New York Daily News says, referring to the animal’s cubs, soon they will have a permanent place to remember their father.

Hipsters and “social justice” warriors are not known for their brains either.

But here’s a tidbit for them: Cecil was named for the  British Imperialist Cecil Rhodes.

Pope Francis Wisdom Shines

Conservatives like to pile on Pope Francis — sometimes even we do too — but when he’s right, he’s right and he is right about turning “capitalism” into some kind of idol. Pope Francis Wisdom Shines

Here are 37 American businesses that wildly celebrated Friday’s (June 26) nonsensical  5-4 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court forbidding states to restrict a marriage to one man and one woman.

Leave aside that the ruling isn’t going to help anyone’s bottom line. Leave aside that it further endangers our already endangered Social Security program. Leave aside it complicates corporate human resources divisions and increases the cost of benefits programs.

It was hip and gives the rich, spoiled, never-bloodied ones who run corporate America to  shout “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.”

The recognition that homosexuality is a sin is a rather small part of the Bible and, despite what some Democrats claim, God does not hate gays. Rejecting that one part, though, gives license to reject the whole thing.

Taking care of the poor and loving your neighbor for examples.

Victor David Hanson, a week ago, published a heartbreaking column on PJMedia.com describing how the water crisis and environmental fanaticism are causing people to literally abandon their homes in the working class interior of California while the  gated-community hipsters in Silicon Valley and Hollywood enjoy rich lawns and expansive carbon footprints.

The people who run America’s institutions whether business, academic or political truly don’t care about gays as individuals unless that particular gay can be of some benefit to them, and they don’t care about non-gays either.

So kudos Pope Francis for having the insight to spell it out.

And what is the Pope’s position on gay marriage? It’s pretty clear.

The family is also threatened by growing efforts on the part of some to redefine the very institution of marriage,” he says about it. “As you know, these realities are increasingly under attack from powerful forces which threaten to disfigure God’s plan for creation and betray the very values which have inspired and shaped all that is best in your culture.”

It’s a time-tested rule-of-thumb that the ones who most loudly proclaim their compassion, open mindedness and altruism are the cruelest, most bigoted and greediest. Silicon Valley proves this rule. The companies that are most supportive of the Democrat Party and most insistent upon “social justice” are the world’s most predatory capitalists and the least tolerant of diversity and dissenting views.

Ben Farrell, an Australian policemen who emigrated to the U.S. to work at Apple, has written an expose on the company’s  cult-like business model and rather inhumane treatment of its workers.

Here is an excerpt from his article: I Quit: What Really Goes On At Apple published on April 6, 2015 on his site Road Less Travelled.

By Ben Farrell

I’ve just escaped the Apple institution. I’ve sent in my resignation, and fled down its bright white corridors curated by crass colourful pictures of iPhones past. I handed in my security pass and in return I was able to re-claim my creativity, individuality and free thinking from the secure Apple cloak room.

Finally now, for the first time in two years, I feel light, creative and inspired. I am again an individual with my own creative ideas, perceptions, values and beliefs. It may take me a while, but from what I believe – I’m now able to express such beliefs again. I am no longer part of the collective  iCult machine whose dirty, worn-out, greasy and naive internal mechanisms of bullying, harassment and mind-games push out shiny and polished iPhones every year. I AM FREE

It is ironic that one of the world’s largest companies and one that prides itself on innovation, creativity and ‘breaking the mould’, operates on such soul limiting entrenched dogma. It’s an organised boys club where perception is valued over substance and tenure over talent. I spent two years in the Apple camp managing customer service improvement for their technical support contact centres and out of the fifteen plus years working in this industry I’ve never witnessed so many bizarre and unprofessional things, only some of which I have time to touch on here.

I found Apple to be a sheltered workshop. The common language spoken being passive aggression, sarcasm and Kool-Aid fuelled stories of ‘success’ designed to manipulate and intimidate naive workers who have never experienced corporate life outside the Apple walls. Like the Chinese emperors believed the forbidden city in Beijing was the centre of the universe and constructed their empire around it, I’m sure that some people at Apple feel the same… Is it a coincidence that the new Apple Campus looks like a giant spaceship? Maybe the plan is for everyone to drink poisoned ‘kool-Aid’ before ascending to the mothership… Sounds like I got out just in time.

Even after-work beers were a strange affair. Drinks with colleagues revolved around the same stories told again and again as drunken management spoke of times when Apple executives made ‘strategic’ decisions to cut jobs and shut down Apple sites so swiftly and carelessly. Like boy-scouts around a campfire, employees eyes would glow and twinkle at this notion of power and embrace these stories with awe but with utter disrespect for the actions Apple has on the broader community of contractors, vendors, partners, resellers and business partners they have bent over a barrel of non-profitability. Remarks such as “… to make a decision that affects so many lives and so many jobs so quickly like that shows the sheer level on which they (Apple executive management) operate… Amazing” were common dialogue around Friday beers. In my opinion a monkey can cut jobs, but at Apple the strangest things are revered.

Sixteen hour days are filled with meetings after meetings followed by more meetings. Whilst this is somewhat standard in most organisations, meetings at Apple wreaked of toxic agendas designed to deliberately trip people up, make fools of the less respected and call people out. Team spirit is non existent as ‘internal customers’ attack individuals and push agendas that satisfy their morning egos. Hours upon hours were wasted in meetings to prepare for meetings in preparation for other meetings to the point where little work actually got done. These rehearsals – called ‘dry runs’ (to me it sounds like something you’d pick up from South East Asian street food) – were meetings to refine impressions and push agendas… how to get the impressions right. How to bend, twist and polish data to tell the story you were instructed to tell… Not the reality the data presents. If a story can’t be forged, the data is excluded.

I had organised a day off recently where all my family were visiting me from interstate. Despite this I had agreed to dial in to one conference call as the audience attending was ‘important’. Well it seems Important but disrespectful, as the audience never even turned up, yet I was still made to ‘dry-run’ the whole meeting from start to finish for an hour and a half as if there was full attendance and interest in what I was saying. So, as the food I had prepared for my family went cold, there I was stuck on the phone role-playing a fake menial meeting to satisfy managements ego.

Sickness, family emergencies, and even weddings are given no respect at Apple. When I started my role I missed one business trip as my wife was pregnant, fell down the stairs and had to be hospitalised – this was listed as a ‘performance issue’ on my record and brought up during a one on one with management as a major ‘miss’ on my behalf. Meetings at midnight were also common place where I was always asked to present something menial (again to be seen), however even then I wasn’t allowed to simply speak to my topic but instead I was fed scripts by management through instant message with countdowns included about how long I had left to speak (“1 min 30 secs left”… “too long…”, “wrap it up”…).

Rush Limbaugh, last week, had a fascinating observation regarding the social pressure techniques mastered by the progressives that have many of us wondering why so often nonsensical ideas become policy and law at the expense of our freedom and lifestyles. Ignore Small Loud Progressives

“There is on Twitter this thing called StopRush, and it’s people attacking me and this program much the way Indiana is being attacked today, and whatever conservative institution was attacked yesterday,” he said. ” . . .It’s 10 people. We researched it. We know who the people are. We know where they live. Virtually 85 percent of all the so-called outrage e-mails and tweets are generated by 10 people, made to look as though they are thousands and thousands and thousands. It’s all fake. It’s all phony.”

But it gets worse.

“Let’s say there’s a mom-and-pop operation that wants to advertise on our station in Illinois, Chicago, WLS, and that local sponsor’s commercial is heard, and the next thing that proprietor knows, he’s got thousands and thousands of tweets threatening him, telling him defamatory things about me, lies and things totally made up about things I’ve supposedly said on the radio,” Rush noted.. “And the guy gets scared. We found out that not only are only 10 people behind this, but in the vast, I mean vast majority of cases, 90 percent of the tweets are coming from out of state.”

The people who do these things are wannabee tyrants. They won’t be swayed by truth or reasoned debated because they accept neither truth or reason. They don’t value decency, and compassion as we do. They are bullies. When we learn to stand up to them we will be much happier, freer, richer and stronger.
