(This is a composite commentary covering a variety of subjects.)
Breitbart.com reported about the far-left mayor of New York City:
Police arrested a prominent Democratic leader and staff member for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on child pornography charges, according to the New York Post.
On Friday, the Post said that court documents stated that Jacob Schwartz allegedly kept thousands of photos and nearly one hundred videos on a laptop depicting horrifying acts with “young nude females between the approximate ages of 6 months and 16, engaging in sexual conduct… on an adult male.”
This is no surprise at all. This is just another day at the office for the Democrat party. We can rest assured that millions of Democrats nationwide look at child porn. After all, the socialist left is seeking to decriminalize child porn and legitimize adult-child sex. It is also trying to open up all bathrooms to whomever wants to use them. Now here is a second mini-editorial:
Like a good left-winger Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has in effect called for Total Socialism in America.
It is important to remember why this happening:
Zucky has worked very little in his life. He simply was plucked out of the crowd and given funding for Facebook that has made him enormously wealthy by age 30. His net worth is estimated at $45 billion or more.
On the other hand president Trump is worth up to $9 billion, and he is 70 years old and created his wealth on his own, over decades, by building things, girder by girder, brick by brick.
Zucky’s handlers are tailoring him to become president, and they now demand complete obedience including calling for Total Socialism and other left-wing canards like open borders. CNBC.com reported:
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg called on the need to consider universal basic income for Americans during his Harvard Commencement Speech.
Zuckerberg’s comments reflect those of other Silicon Valley bigwigs, including Sam Altman, the president of venture capital firm Y Combinator.
… A year ago, Altman said he thinks “everyone should have enough money to meet their basic needs—no matter what, especially if there are enough resources to make it possible. We don’t yet know how it should look or how to pay for it, but basic income seems a promising way to do this.” Altman believes basic income will be possible as technological advancements “generate an abundance of resources” that help decrease the cost of living.
Obviously Zucky and Altman never get far out of their Billionaire Bubbles long enough to see or study the real world. Because if they did they would know that communism already tried this idea and it failed miserably.
If you want to see a clear example, take a quick look at these two videos (they are quite long, so you can click through them). They are both shot in Potsdam, Germany, which was part of communist East Germany from 1945 until the Berlin Wall fell in 1989.
The videos show streetcar rides through Potsdam. The first one was shot shortly after the fall of the wall, and shows the devastating effect of communism. The city is grim, grey, overgrown and often looks abandoned. There are no businesses to speak of. The cars on the streets are old and notoriously bad quality vehicles.
Meanwhile this video shows a streetcar ride through Potsdam in 2015, which was 26 years after the fall of communism. It looks like a real prosperous and modern German city!
On another note, Fox News reported sadly:
Ten of the 29 victims killed in Friday’s ambush attack on a bus transporting Christians to a monastery south of Cairo were identified as children, a top bishop told The Wall Street Journal.
As many as 10 masked attackers in three SUVs stormed the bus dressed in military uniforms and demanded that the passengers recite the Muslim profession of faith, witnesses said. Then, the gunmen opened fire.
The children were traveling with their parents to pray at an ancient monastery in central Egypt. Many suffered gunshot wounds to the head and chest, Bishop Makarios, a Coptic clergyman in Minya Province, told The Journal. Three children on board the bus reportedly survived.
Survivors claimed the killers left behind flyers about the holy Muslim month of Ramadan, which begins Friday evening. Local media also reported that the attackers were recording video themselves.
The attack came on the eve of the start of the Muslim holy month. It was the fourth attack targeting the country’s Christian minority since December, and it came on the same week of the suicide bombing in Manchester where children were believed to be the target.
This is modern-day Islam at work, friends. These terrorists are animals, and there seems to be little condemnation among Muslims worldwide. Fortunately the Egyptian military, which is pro-Christian and pro-American, has struck hard at terror camps in eastern Libya. It should continue to do so every day, with the assistance of the United States.
Now, here is a word about outer space. This is from an article on RT.com:
NASA scientists are outdoing themselves yet again: by reworking the planned route for a robotic mission to a giant asteroid worth $10,000 quadrillion, they’ve managed to cut costs, launch sooner and arrive four years earlier than planned. Not bad.
The Psyche planetoid, measuring 240km (149 miles) in diameter, is located in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter and is made almost entirely of iron and nickel.
At current market prices, such an asteroid, a truly unique object in our solar system, is estimated to be worth $10,000 quadrillion ($10,000,000,000,000,000,000). That is, if you could successfully tow it into orbit and then mine it (and find someone to buy all of it, of course). For scale, the entire global economy is worth over $74 trillion.
This is typical of the nonsense that we get from the wackos on the internet and even from NASA (the government) and these nuts like Stephen Hawking, the British guy in the wheelchair who earns his living making moronic predictions about the universe (“In 80 million years, earth will be sucked into a black hole…)
Get a life, Hawk…
This asteroid is an infinitesimal fraction of the size of the earth, yet they say that it is worth all of that money.
Guess what, friends. The earth itself is worth a million times what that asteroid is worth. The earth has vast amounts of resources and we do not have to go into outer space to get them, which is not in any way feasible in the first place.
Yet the same science-fiction lunatics and environmentalists who tell us that we are going to mine an asteroid tell us that we should not mine anything right here on earth, that the earth is running out of everything, that we are all going to die from ‘global warming’ if we use our oil, coal, iron ore, copper, etc.
Beware of these goons. They are irrational and dangerous people. And by the way, the earth has virtually unlimited resources. We are getting better and better at finding them and extracting them, including oil and natural gas.
Now look at this from CBS, in Sacramento, California:
Faced with an urgent shortage of workers, California farmers are desperate to be heard. “If we can’t change the way we’re doing business, we’re at risk,” said Brad Goehring, a fourth-generation wine grape grower in Lodi.
The state has been struggling with this farm labor shortage issue for years, but it’s gotten to a point where farmers are fed-up. As harvesting season gets underway, many growers in need of workers fear they may lose their crops, and President Donald Trump’s crackdown on immigration orders appears to only make matters worse.
Goehring says it’s become more and more difficult to find people to do this work. “It’s been a real struggle and it’s been increasing the last 5-6 years,” he said.
Goehring is among the growing number of agricultural businessmen in California who have tried a number of strategies to lure workers. From putting ads in the paper to offering benefits- such as health insurance and 401(k)s, Goehring has even increased pay on certain jobs up to $22 an hour.
Wow. Can’t find workers? So blame it on Trump!
Friends, there are tens of millions of unemployed people in the United States who could be doing these jobs. Our cities are full of millions of blacks who never have worked a day in their lives. There are millions of illegal immigrants in California who are living on welfare and food stamps. Why aren’t these people working?
We do not have a shortage of workers. We have a shortage of people who are willing to work and we have a system that encourages sloth. Period.
Now here is another story. This is an excerpt from a website called Heat Street:
More than 100 eco-friendly Olympic medals won at the Rio Games last year have been sent back because they are rusting and decaying.
The medals were hailed as a masterpiece of sustainability because they used recycled materials in place of traditional precious metals.
However, less than 12 months after they were handed out, a substantial number of the prizes are already the worse for wear.
Yes, sir, once again the environmentalists told us to do something and it backfired completely.
And if you think that environmentalists are out to protect the environment, you are crazy. They want to blanket the wilderness and our mountaintops with windmills that are grossly inefficient, that harm our economy, destroy our natural beauty and shred millions of birds every year, including endangered eagles in California.
But, hey, as long as the ‘greenies’ are getting rich on windmills we are not supposed to care about the wilderness, the mountains or the eagles.
Now here is a story from PJMedia.com about Middlebury College in Vermont (and in the interest of full disclosure, Nikitas3.com graduated from Middlebury in 1976).
When Charles Murray agreed to speak at Middlebury College, he already knew he was considered controversial by the campus Left. But he never expected the degree of illiberal behavior of students during his speech. And as he and his host, Professor Allison Stanger, exited the building, she was injured and their car was violently attacked.
It was a riot.
Middlebury College has concluded its investigation. Despite the criminal behavior, the university “punished” the culprits with a slap on the wrist:
The sanctions were assessed following findings that students violated either or both of the institution’s Demonstrations and Protests and Respect for Persons policies.
In total, the College disciplined 67 students with sanctions ranging from probation to official College discipline, which places a permanent record in the student’s file. Some graduate schools and employers require individuals to disclose official college discipline in their applications.
So whaddya know! No real punishment. In fact those students probably will get extra credit and scholarships to graduate schools for rioting on behalf of censorship.
It is a travesty. That is why I have only given $100 to Middlebury in 41 years since my graduation, and will never give them a penny ever again. You, readers, should also stop funding your left-wing colleges.
Now here is quote from our Housing and Urban Development secretary Dr. Ben Carson, an accomplished surgeon who is a fantastic black conservative:
“I think poverty to a large extent is also a state of mind. You take somebody that has the right mindset, you can take everything from them and put them on the street, and I guarantee in a little while they’ll be right back up there. And you take somebody with the wrong mindset, you could give them everything in the world, they’ll work their way right back down to the bottom.”
Wow! Home run! It’s about time someone said it. Congratulations Dr. Carson!
Naturally the left is going nuts because the left maintains power and economic control over tens of millions of Americans by cultivating a culture of poverty and dependency, much of it psychological.
