We’ve always admired Larry Elder’s ability to shred liberal narratives with data and facts.
Rules for thee, but not for me. The left talk of institutional racism incessantly. Perhaps they need to talk about institutional hypocrisy instead. Far more compelling evidence, especially during coronavirus.
While Trump hasn’t conceded, the media have called this election. Never mind that the electoral college decides that and with so much court drama, we may get see a slim chance of Trump winning. What if he did?
The media has wasted no time mocking Trump by publishing articles at just how relieved world leaders are to have a return to the status quo. This idea of division. Really? Trump merely exposed the sheer incompetence of so many leaders and the graft and corruption that goes on in the swamp. He may be no clean shirt himself given he is a NY property tycoon but he has exposed the double standards among the political class who have been completely self serving. What happened to “of the people, by the people and for the people“?
Honestly, in what world does rejoining UN bodies achieve anything other than waste money pushing for globalist nonsense and lining up crony capitalists to feed at the teat of things like climate change and open borders?
Wouldn’t it be ironic to see these world leaders currently publicly distancing themselves from Trump having to do an about face if the courts rule the Biden victory as illegitimate?
Talk about division. World leaders maybe using the media’s call on the election for their own political purposes, but there is some real schadenfreude in the offing if these hacks who have failed to call anything right for four years end up eating their own words as the drown in hubris.
When will banks like ANZ realize that pushing climate change evangelism in order for prospective customers to qualify for loans might be far better served if these groups operated from a position of squeaky clean ethics to begin with?
What is the true global warming impact of a farmer with 100 farting cows who needs to upgrade his tractor to more efficiently operate? Will he be penalized for not erecting a solar park first?
There is little more infuriating than being lectured to by organizations that have a long history of sketchy behaviour.
While banks should be free to run their business as they see fit within the realms of the law, what purpose does this nonsense serve? Since when did ANZ become the axe on climate change? Just like the clowns at ASIC whose own research proved that corporations found less need to make statements about the climate impact on their businesses. So upset is the regulator that it wants to impose a reporting structure anyway! Will 3 extra pot plants in the foyer qualify as climate abatement in an annual filing?
What next? Will small businesses fail to qualify for ANZ loans if they don’t have the right mix of identities or apportion a certain amount of philanthropic donations to approved activist organizations like BLM?
Will ANZ demand that businesses declare how many suppliers in the minority community are mandated? We all know how well that went with PG&E in California.
There has to be a massive opportunity for a financial institution to grow a pair and fill a need. With fewer players, they might find it much more margin accretive and satisfying for shareholder returns.
First of all, Kristen Welker did a very good job as moderator. Even Trump praised her.
Joe Biden started off well but faded fast in the back half of the debate. He didn’t handle the saga around his son, Hunter, well. He sounded rattled and will only draw more eyeballs to the suppressed media coverage.
Trump explained his points far better that in the first debate. Getting rid of COVID in the first question allowed the more powerful points for Trump in the back half where he could made significant ground around the economy, foreign policy, race and health.
Trump executed well by slamming Biden for being a “politician” who promises stuff but doesn’t deliver. That he hasn’t achieved the things he proposes now in 47 years in politics or 8 years as VP. Biden even disparaged Obama by saying he can do things he wants if he is president.
When Biden raised Hitler in the debate, he started to back pedal fast. Why talk about Nazism?
Biden’s stupidity was to touch on $15 minimum wages to help small business. Is he nuts? What small business in trouble thinks that recovery will come through higher wages?
Biden asked people to fact check his position on fracking. He said he wouldn’t ban it in today’s debate but is on tape countless times saying he would. Too easy to prove he is lying. Biden’s renewables push was hopeless and Trump made it clear why the US doesn’t need to be in the Paris Accord.
At the very end Biden chucked the oil industry under the bus in the closing remarks of the climate change section. Trump pushed him and he took the bait to say he wants to phase it out for good. Surely not the thing to say in fossil fuel dependent swing states.
In summary, this election will be determined by “lived experience“. Nothing is more powerful than becoming irate at a politician telling you what you aren’t experiencing.
We think the actions of mostly despotic Democratic mayors and governors throughout coronavirus have sent a negative message about what happens when citizens lose control and cede power to law makers.
We still believe Trump has got this.
60 Minutes never expected that President Trump would release the unedited footage of his recent interview with Lesley Stahl which reveals how the program tried to cover it up by not reporting it in the final broadcast.
With a media this complicit, expect Trump not to answer some of the questions tonight but go straight for the jugular. Is it any wonder that Biden is hidin’ again and Barack Obama is out there on the campaign trail doing his bidding.
Biden sort of reminds us of former opposition leader Bill Shorten at the time legendary Australian Labor PM Bob Hawke died in the lead up to the federal election in 2019. Everyone could see how empty a suit was Shorten compared to Hawke. Shorten lost the unlosable election.
We don’t think Obama was much chop as president to be honest, but at the very least his eloquence and demagoguery exposes just how awful Biden is.
How bad must Joe Biden’s campaign be for Barack Obama to be wheeled into the swing state of Pennsylvania? Apart from being the most divisive president in US history, why isn’t Joe Biden standing alongside Obama? Where is the bromance? Wouldn’t it be more powerful to have Joe Biden in screen shot?
We don’t recall any former president being so vocal in a presidential campaign. Obama’s speech was full of total falsehoods, as can be expected. Much like his eulogy for John Lewis.
Obama made it clear in his speech that Joe Biden will create 10 million green jobs paid for by the $2 trillion gained from repealing the Trump tax cuts.
If Pennsylvania is so on board the Green New Deal, why did Biden claim recently that the Pennsylvania boilermakers union endorsed him? Their entire livelihoods are driven by making products used in the fossil fuel industry. Union leaders flatly denied endorsing him.
The irony is that Obama doesn’t realise he is one of the reasons that gave birth to Donald Trump’s presidency. We just hope his magic rubs off on Americans like it did the Brits ahead of the Brexit referendum.
For those who don’t know, Yelp is a site that collects ratings about all manner of services – from restaurants, plumbers, electricians to hair salons. One can even search exclusively for black-owned businesses.
Yelp has now decided to add a function which alerts consumers of businesses accused of ‘racism.’
“At Yelp, we value diversity, inclusion and belonging, both internally and on our platform, which means we have a zero tolerance policy to racism….Communities have always turned to Yelp in reaction to current events at the local level. As the nation reckons with issues of systemic racism, we’ve seen in the last few months that there is a clear need to warn consumers about businesses associated with egregious, racially-charged actions to help people make more informed spending decisions….Now, when a business gains public attention for reports of racist conduct, such as using racist language or symbols, Yelp will place a new Business Accused of Racist Behavior Alert on their Yelp page to inform users, along with a link to a news article where they can learn more about the incident.”
What if Yelp incorrectly accuses a corporation/business of racism based on a false claim?
Remember what happened to Oberlin College?
The whole issue started when a student from Oberlin College was caught shoplifting two bottles of wine from Gibson’s Bakery while trying to buy another with fake ID. Allyn Gibson, son of the owner chased down the shoplifter but was attacked by his accomplices. The perpetrators claimed racial profiling by the store.
Oberlin College’s Dean of Students, Meredith Raimondo, joined in student protests calling Gibsons a “racist establishment.” It was then that Oberlein ended all business with the bakery (which had been an ongoing supplier to the college since 1885). Flyers were printed and the store attacked.
Several faculty staff joined the protestors who tried to shut down Gibsons despite the college president Carmen Twillie Ambar suggesting they were on private time and only representing their First Amendment rights, not representing the school.
After a police investigation turned over nothing to suggest racism on any level, Oberlin resumed its contract with Gibson’s but refused to publicly retract the accusations.
Gibson sued for defamation and won US$25 million. The three perpetrators admitted they’d made it all up and that the shop owner had a right to charge them for their crime.
We will have no sympathy if Yelp falls into this woke trap and gets sued for falsely accusing innocent businesses.
Well worth watching this insane video of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi railing at CNN’s Wolf Blitzer for being biased towards Republicans because he legitimately wants to know why she won’t sign the $1.8 trillion relief bill that Trump has promised to sign immediately.
Pelosi claimed she feeds the poor. We are still puzzled how a woman with a $20,000 freezer stuffed full of gourmet ice cream can talk of feeding the needy when her district has some of the highest homeless rates in the country.
It appears that even members of her own party, including Andrew Yang, have pleaded with Pelosi to put the relief bill forward because real Americans are suffering. Never let anything stand in the way of chronic Trump Derangement Syndrome.
