American corporations are almost fully transformed into centralized political and connected hubs of propaganda, government authority, and power. The most radical political left America has accomplished these power grabs has ever seen. In fact, when reading a recent report by CISCO on their “Social Justice Beliefs and Agenda,” their brave new world solutions sound a lot like something from the Chinese Communist Party.
“Communist philosophy centers around the control of the “means of production” in society. This means of production is the physical and labor capital used to produce the different goods in society. … Because each human is a product of society, anything he or she produces is also a product of society by translation.”
Compare and contrast to Cisco’s Mission Statement: “At Cisco, our purpose is to power an Inclusive Future for all. When we say all, we mean everyone: all communities of color, races, ethnicities, gender identities, military service, abilities, age, sexual orientations, social classes, faiths, nationalities, relationships, and family statuses.
With our purpose at the heart of everything we do, you can count on Cisco to be bold, brave, and deliberate about our role and the actions we will take to support social justice. Beliefs inspire us; frameworks guide our decisions that result in our actions.”
‘CISCO IS INVOLVED WITH EVERYTHING, AND THEY WANT TO TRANSFORM EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE.” FORMER CISCO ENGINEER.
“Everything was pretty good at Cisco until Chuck Robbins took over, and now it is unbearable, and many people have quit over his demanding politics.” one former engineer from Cisco told me.
Doesn’t that sound happy and perfect? It is almost as happy and perfect as working at CISCO, so let’s look at what is going on with their CEO to make such a happy, happy environment.
Chuck Robbins is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Cisco. He assumed the role of CEO on July 26, 2015, and was elected Chairman of the Board on December 11, 2017.
Left leading Forbes says it is the happiest place on Earth:
WHERE DO THE POLITICAL DEMANDS COME FROM? FROM THE GOVERNMENT? FROM SOCIAL JUSTICE NON-PROFITS? FROM CEOS?
Yes. Yes. Yes.
Chuck Robbins is the CEO of Cisco. While they brag about the “happiest place on Earth to work,” Several computer engineers contacted me to say that they quit the company due to the deeply divisive and progressive Communist politics of Robbins.
According to his timeline, he is deeply active in far-left Democrat politics, and he proudly and openly posts in support of the furthest left Bills that will transform the culture and society in America:
Of course, he is entitled to his beliefs and post about his beliefs, but in this culture of canceling people for opposing the left, it feels like it is a bit of a veiled threat to believe the opposite of the CEO.
Is Chuck Robbins planning on using his position at Cisco to eradicate American workers from an American company on American soil?
WHAT PROBLEM ARE THEY TRYING TO SOLVE? THE GEORGE FLOYD CASE?
Consider this report from Sept 2020, which spells out a far-left set of beliefs about humanity- and an agenda to create a utopia in America. That is the Cisco plan. One can not disagree with how much care Cisco wants to take of its employees and of humanity in general, but read this report, remember the Communist ideals, and see if you begin to get the creeps :
Commitment to Justice We believe that social justice is apolitical. It’s our calling to ensure that communities on the margins experience a world that is just, where they are valued, validated, and empowered.
Addressing Insecurity of Being Cisco has long believed in addressing insecurity across fundamental human needs, rights, and access. We are expanding our commitment and addressing a new area: the insecurity of being. The insecurity of happening when one is a target of hate and violence solely due to their existence in a marginalized group, be it in the physical or virtual world.
Culture of Coalescence We believe in fostering a culture that is beneficial to all. When we see an opportunity to unite the whole, we will coalesce our people and our resources to take inspired action to drive meaningful change. And, we will encourage our employees, suppliers, communities, and partners to join us in working alongside diverse communities.
Curiosity, Proximity, and Empathy We believe in modeling curiosity by continually educating ourselves about all forms of inequality and injustice. Our understanding grows more when we get proximate to the most vulnerable and insecure in our communities. By engaging in proximity, empathy, and ultimately, action can be realized.
The Most Vulnerable
Cisco will influence our ecosystem to support policy, legislation and organizations working to ensure equal rights for AA/Black people in 2020 and beyond. • Social justice will only sustain if we place an equal focus on our regional communities as we have internally at Cisco. We support national policing reform efforts and encourage Congress to reach a resolution designed to better protect, respect, and serve AA/Black communities across the United States.
• Voting rights are at the core of our democracy, and Cisco supports policies that promote the full, equal, and active participation of all communities in federal, state, and local elections. • We will provide employees with up to one business day of paid time off to vote in major country elections across the world, where applicable. We will use our influence to encourage other companies in our ecosystem and communities to do the same. • We will support the endeavors of policymakers as they pursue establishing a commission to examine the legacy of slavery and systemic discrimination in the United States and to propose solutions. • We will partner with and invest in organizations on the frontlines that bridge insecurities in the AA/Black community—including being critical human needs, education, healthcare, and economic empowerment
DOES THIS FEEL LIKE CONTROLLING THE MEANS OF PRODUCTION?
“Communist philosophy centers around the control of the “means of production” in society. This means of production is the physical and labor capital that is used to produce the different goods in society.”
Cisco will require preferred suppliers in 2021 to report annually on the full spectrum diversity of their workforce provided to Cisco, where permissible, and we will recognize and reward those that excel in increasing diversity.
(Ask yourself what will happen if they can not find a pool of talent in “diverse communities” IN America? Will they push to import foreign “diverse” talent?)
• Our suppliers are an extension of Cisco. We will expand our competitive sourcing to require 100% of bids include at least one qualified diverse supplier to double our percentage spend with diverse suppliers by 2023.
• Cisco will insert core anti-discrimination training into standard training provided to preferred suppliers that work with Cisco. • In the US, we will focus on offering AA/Black-owned businesses access to Cisco mentorship and coaching. Outside the US, we will focus our diverse supplier program to address the inclusion of marginalized communities
And if these “qualified diverse” suppliers don’t exist, CISCO will fund new business, putting people and businesses out of work.
In other words, “White Americans need not apply”. Welcome to your Marxist-Communist nightmare, comrade.
Check out the full report for more concerning twist and turns from CISCO.
It’s no secret that democratic socialist progressive Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is not a big fan of America’s top wage earners. Like his communist counterparts, Sanders has bemoaned the fact capitalism has made it possible for American citizens to generate great wealth.
The irony of Marxists who say that the top 1% of wage earners don’t pay their fair share even though according to IRS numbers the top wage earners pay far more than their fair share, but with that aside, the fact is these ignoramuses don’t realize that that top 1% support their very lifestyle.
For example, whenever a little Marxist useful idiot post a tweet online about how evil capitalism is and that the 1% are the bad guys they don’t seem to realize that the very device that they are using to post, be it a mobile phone, a tablet, or a desktop computer, was provided for them at an affordable price by one of the top 1% wage earners. The Marxist useful idiot didn’t come up with the idea to create that iPhone or that Android mobile device or the Fire tablet. One of the top one-percenters used their own money (capital) and an idea to come together with other like-minded people to create a product that most Americans would never be able to build themselves or even afford to build themselves. And here’s the best part of all. Even though said Marxist useful idiots do not have a dime’s worth of stock in the company, they still get the benefits of the 1%’s ideas and efforts by buying a product that is made far more affordable than what they would have had to pay if they built it themselves. From the mobile devices they use to complain to the cars they drive and the gasoline that they put into it, from the clothes that they wear and the food they eat, the 1% are the ones who created all of that for their usage and these people are too damn stupid to realize it.
Forget the fact that Sanders used to complain about “the millionaires” until he himself became one, and then he changed up his talking points to attack “the billionaires” instead.
Well, over the weekend Sanders got into it with the CEO of SpaceX and the Tesla auto manufacturing company Elon Musk. Apparently, the old Marxist hates that there are billionaires like Musk that exist. The likes of Elon Musk and even that of leftists Amazon and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos have earned their money by making things that people want to give them money for, a concept that Sanders never understood. Maybe it’s because he never got a paycheck until he turned 40 and has worked in government his entire life.
Sanders believes guys like Musk and Bezos earning their wealth are immoral. The 79-year-old curmudgeon bellyacher took to social media to post one of the most ignorant statements he’s ever made, and that’s saying something.
“We are in a moment in American history where two guys — Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos — own more wealth than the bottom 40% of people in this country. That level of greed and inequality is not only immoral. It is unsustainable.”
Bezos’ Amazon.com has joined the progressive Woke Supremacy in that he is now banning books that the Supremacy dislikes, so it must be bewildering to him to find the Grand Wizard of the Supremacy attacking him.
The senator used the word “greed” to explain his target’s wealth. How on Lucifer’s black beach does greed play in here? Again, they create things that people want and desire and they get paid for it. They hire employees who feed their families by the salaries they get paid.
Sanders has a real problem with Amazon, as this isn’t the first time he’s attacked the company. His little Marxist protégé AOC cost the city of New York about 25,000 jobs when she meddled in a negotiation with the company to open up a headquarters in the Big Apple. The senator from Vermont attacked the company for not paying their lowest level employees $15 an hour.
Sanders attacked Bezos and Musk publicly the day after he and a handful of other nitwits in Congress introduced the “Tax Excessive CEO Pay Act,” that says on Sanders’ website will raise “taxes on companies that pay their top executives at least 50 times more than the pay of a median worker.”
The Democrats tried to attack CEO salaries in the past and it didn’t work then either. It just causes so much harm to companies and their innocent workers. We should all just wish Bernie quietly goes away soon. And by “goes away” I’m not suggesting any kind of violence in the manner Bernie’s supporters seem to engage in at Congressional baseball practices. In the past, Democrats complained that CEOs were paid too much, so corporations then lowered their salaries but then beefed up benefits like corporate bonuses for CEOs if they met certain benchmarks for the company.
First of all, it’s none of anyone else’s business how much a corporation is willing to pay a CEO, certainly none of Bernie Sanders’ business. If a business is in competition for great CEOs, then they have to make an attractive offer to bring someone of that caliber to the company. What business is it of the government to meddle in how much companies pay their CEOs? The correct answer is none.
CleanTechnica, a site that writes about Musk often, wrote a pieceaccording to the New York Post, Zachary Shahan responded to Sanders’ tweet, calling the remarks “ridiculous” and “idiotic.”
Musk says he’s hoarding his money for a good cause, but evidently, it’s not good enough for Bernie. Sanders acted as if he popped a blood vessel in his eye when he went off on Musk, who said he’s saving up his giant wealth to support life on other planets. Think about the number of new people that Sanders could virtue-signal to, about how the richest people on Mars are immoral.
Shahan, who said he agrees with Sanders’ overall call to address wealth inequality, took the senator to task for attacking Musk as though the Tesla chief is some sort of cash-hoarding monster:
“Elon Musk’s wealth is not in gold or cash. It is not in houses or yachts. His enormous wealth comes from the fact that companies he founded have gotten so large and successful, and the related fact that he he doesn’t sell his stock in those companies. He’s so wealthy because so many investors have poured so much money into the expectation that his companies will do better and better as the years go on. Elon is not hoarding cash. He doesn’t have cash to hoard. He has said that he takes out loans based on his net worth when he needs to buy things, rather than selling stock. He isn’t being greedy and just accumulating more and more cash.”
Musk saw the CleanTechnica story and took to social media to respond to Sanders’ attacks.
“I am accumulating resources to help make life multiplanetary & extend the light of consciousness to the stars”
Sanders couldn’t help himself. He responded by accusing Musk of doing something wrong.
“Space travel is an exciting idea, but right now we need to focus on Earth and create a progressive tax system so that children don’t go hungry, people are not homeless and all Americans have healthcare. The level of inequality in America is obscene and a threat to our democracy.”
Senator Bernie Sanders is blaming Elon Musk for children going hungry, homeless people, and Americans not having healthcare. There is a reason why Donald Trump referred to him as Crazy Bernie.
Senator Bernie Sanders’s (I-VT) proposal to mandate raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour was given a pink slip when eight, count em, eight Democrat senators joined the Republicans to reject the measure for whatever reasons I don’t care just so long as it failed.
The eight senators that the Woke Supremacists are now poking needles into their voodoo dolls are Senators Tom Carper (D-DE), Chris Coons (D-DE), Maggie Hassan (D-NH), Joe Manchin (D-WV), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), Jon Tester (D-MT), and Angus King (I-ME) and Independent who caucuses with Democrats voted against the measure, joining every Republican in the upper chamber.
The vote failed at 42–58. The socialists needed 60 votes to overrule the Senate parliamentarian’s decision that a minimum wage increase can’t be embedded in a broader COVID-19 stimulus bill. The fact that they even tried shows that they don’t give a rat’s behind about the parliamentarian rules in the first place. Most honest people would want to do something and then say, “Oh, it’s against the rules? Well, then okay, I guess that’s that,” but not the socialists. They just want what they want and rules be damned. I’m surprised they haven’t already canceled the parliamentarian. Maybe a group of Woke thugs will show up outside her home at 2 am in the morning banging pots and pans and singing chants with signs saying “Where’s my f’ing money!”
Senator Sinema took to social media to tweet that she supports raising the minimum wage because she knows “what it is like to face tough choices while working to meet your family’s most basic needs.”
“Senators in both parties have shown support for raising the federal minimum wage and the Senate should hold an open debate and amendment process on raising the minimum wage, separate from the COVID-focused reconciliation bill,” she said.
I can see a primary in her future.
Manchin, who wants people to think he’s a centrist said in an interview with The Hill that he doesn’t support the $15 per hour increase, but that he’s open to raising the minimum wage to something that is “responsible and reasonable.” In West Virginia, his home state, he suggested that it should be $11 per hour when adjusted for inflation.
Personally, I don’t think the minimum wage itself is responsible or reasonable. What right does the federal government have to tell businesses in states how much they must at least pay their workers? On top of that, every single time the minimum wage is increased the little guy gets hurt. That’s right, the workers who are making minimum wage or just slightly above it are the ones who lose their jobs because many small businesses can’t afford the increase.
Here’s the dirty little secret that the DC swamp rats won’t tell you. Every time the Democrats push for a minimum wage increase they tell you they’re doing it because they think the little guy deserves to make a living wage. What they’re really doing is giving paybacks to unions that donate money to get them reelected. The scam goes like this. In many union contracts, the minimum wage is tied in. What I mean is it’s in their union contracts that if the minimum wage goes up say 5% then the already overinflated union-wage must also go up 5%. So, a person currently making $7.25 per hour, the current federal minimum wage would then be increased to $15 an hour, or a 106.8966% increase, which is okay. According to ZipRecruiter, the average union worker when all areas of the country are considered is $20 per hour. That means while the little guy ins gett $15 an hour, the average user worker will now have a salary of over $41. What a scheme!
Some Democrats who have probably never had to run a payroll condemned the eight senators who voted against the minimum wage hike.
“Are you on the side of the working people in America who desperately need a raise? Or are you on the side of the wealthy and the powerful who want to continue exploiting their workers and paying starvation wages?” Bernie Sanders said. He added, “It ain’t more complicated than that.” Actually, it is more complicated than that, but Bernie works at a third-grade level when ciphering numbers.
Democrats have demonstrated that they never cared one iota for the small businesses they would destroy with moves like increasing the minimum wage. Democrats and Socialists are always telling us that they believe that the working man should be able to be paid a living wage. I submit to you that most businesses do pay a living wage. People can live on $7.25 an hour if they didn’t have all the taxes taken out that are confiscated from each paycheck. The current minimum wage would be about $1,100 bucks a month take-home pay if there were no taxes taken out, not bad for an unskilled worker.
That’s another thing. Democrats understand that most people earning minimum wage are usually young people who are just starting out in the labor market and that they raise themselves out of minimum wage within the first six months of employment. Earning minimum wage is just temporary for most people. Some adults work a minimum wage job but it’s usually a second job that they work to supplement their full-time earnings. If you’re raising a family working for years at a minimum wage job then you have more problems than only earning minimum wage.
My Pennsylvania Lt. Governor John Fetterman, an idiot, a Democrat, but then I repeat myself, who is now running for the Senate seat that will be vacant when the RINO Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) retires in 2022, said that “every single senator who voted against a $15 minimum wage today should be forced to live on $7.25 an hour so that they can demonstrate to all of us how it’s possible.” How about every single executive branch official in the Tom Wolf administration be forced to live without any income for a year the way they did to millions of Pennsylvanians who lost their job because of the forced COVID lockdowns?
Toomey said back in January about a White House proposal, “If the federal government mandates a universal $15 minimum wage, many low-income Americans will lose their current jobs and find fewer job opportunities in the future.”
As Congress fought to get the economic not really stimulus bill passed, the Labor Department on Friday said that US employment surged in February, adding 379,000 jobs, significantly higher than many economists had expected. Thank you, Donald Trump!
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) virtue-signaled that millions of jobs are still lost to the pandemic and people are still struggling to pay their rent, so Washington has to act aggressively, even though it Washington has zero authority Constitutionally to do any of it.
“Sometimes the macro statistics get in the way. The top-end is doing very well … But so many other people are struggling,” he said.
The problem with morons like Schumer is that he wants you to think it’s the top-end wage earner’s fault that the others are struggling when the reality is the government is the bad guy here because the government shut businesses down.
The Biden administration has already done enough to endear itself to history’s greatest 20th-century dictators would they be around in the modern age. Joe Biden has reversed many Trump-era policies that made America great again, the reversals certain to harm many Americans in all kinds of ways. It’s as if the Democratic elites in Washington are imposing a great get-evenism campaign against the great unwashed which is you and me. From opening the border to not only rewarding illegal aliens who have lived here illegally for years with no threat of deportations but giving them citizenship to offering welfare benefits to any migrant who happens to stumble across our border – open borders and a welfare state cannot be done simultaneously without calamity – to extending lockdowns on Americans when they are no longer needed and a whole host of other things that are going to make the lives of hundreds of millions of Americans miserable. So this next thing shouldn’t come as a surprise.
White House senior adviser Cedric Richmond has said that the Biden administration will “start acting now” to work on giving reparations for black Americans in the form of government-funded (meaning your tax dollars) college tuition and other things, saying there’s no need to wait for Congress to study the prospect of direct payments to Americans based on race.
Actually, there is a need to wait for Congress. It’s called the Constitution. Richmond, in his own words, doesn’t care to figure out if punishing one group of Americans to give reparations to another group of Americans is fair or not. He cares more about getting the payments out. He just wants to check that box off the list. How much do you want to bet the Democrats in Congress and the Biden administration will have reparations done before a single American receives a COVID relief stimulus check? Every time we allow politicians to disregard the Constitutional process we kill our republic a little bit more. Death by a thousand cuts is how progressives have been killing our country for decades, only now they want to hack away large chunks of our freedoms at a time with no regard to the damage they will do.
That study Richmond doesn’t want to wait for is supposed to, among other things, weigh the harm that will be done to millions of innocent Americans, black and white, who had nothing to do with racism in America. Do you think any of the Biden Woke Supremacy cares one iota about white people being accused and punished for past racism from 156 years ago? Do you think they are considering whether or not a reparations package will create resentment by black and white Americans and further divide our country? Not at all, because progressives are cold-blooded tyrants who will push through whatever they want.
Just to give you an idea who this man is, when Richmond served in Congress as a Democrat from Louisiana, during a Congressional hearing he once inferred that now-former Attorney General William Barr was racist, claiming that when Barr arrived at the hearing none of his staff were black and that that was a sign of systemic racism. He acknowledged that Barr has sung high praises of the late Congressman John Conyers during his earlier questioning, and went on to tell Barr that because there were no black staffers with him that day to keep former Congressman John Lewsis’ name out of the DOJ’s mouth. Richmond has no idea how many black staffers work for the AG. He has no idea how staffers are picked to travel to Congress with the Attorney General. Could it be that black staffers for the AG were working on something else? Could it be that the expertise of black staffers who work for the AG was in another field of study other than the topics to be covered at that particular hearing? The level is disrespect from this man toward the Attorney General of the United States was astounding. That’s who is pushing the reparations agenda.
There are questions that arise about reparations. If we do go forward with them how are they going to decide who receives reparations? Will it be determined by skin color, which means even non-African Americans like Kamala Harris will be on the list? Will black millionaires receive reparations for systemic racism that held them back from becoming successful? Who will have to pay for reparations? Again, will it be determined by the color of skin? What about me? My family didn’t come to America until the year 1900, so my ancestors couldn’t have had anything to do with American slavery. Am I going to be added to the list of systemically racist Americans who have to pay? When you think about it, isn’t the whole modern-day concept of reparations racist in its implementation by the Woke Supremacy?
Last month, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties held a hearing on HR 40, a bill sponsored by crazy Representative Sheila (Shirley if you’re Joe Biden) Jackson Lee (D-TX) and co-sponsored by 161 other Democrats, all Woke Supremamcists, that would set up a federal commission to explore reparations for black Americans, The Hill reported.
Richmond, a Democratic former congressman from Louisiana, told “Axios on HBO” that he believes legislation to create such a commission will pass, but, “We don’t want to wait on a study. We’re going to start acting now.”
“We have to start breaking down systemic racism and barriers that have held people of color back and especially African Americans,” Richmond told the outlet, reiterating, “We have to do stuff now.”
This push to gaslight America into believing there is systemic racism in America is very harmful to the country. If racism is systemic then Cedric Richmond is racist as well. And even if America were systemically racist, which I completely condemn that notion, how would reparations for people who were never slaves being paid by people who never owned slaves, solve a systemically-racist society in the first place? If you ask these idiots behind this scam they would respond by saying, “It’s a good start,” because they wouldn’t really have a good answer.
Richmond added, “If you start talking about free college tuition to [historically black colleges and universities] and you start talking about free community college in Title I and all of those things, I think you are well on your way.”
For accuracy purposes, nothing is free. Someone is going to pay the bill, and it’s you who is getting stuck with it.
The truly sad part of this nightmare known as the Biden administration is that the previous administration had done more to help black Americans than any past president save Abraham Lincoln. President Donald Trump targeted the black community with his economic policies and he successfully drove the black unemployment rate to the lowest in the history of the republic. He gave more money to historically black colleges and universities (HBCU) and Trump removed the indignity imposed by past administrations by adding increases in HBCU yearly grants to the budget so that they didn’t have to grovel at the feet of government politicians each year. Trump did the first major prison reform in decades that ironically reversed Joe Biden’s 1994 crime bill signed into law by President Bill Clinton that put many young black men in prison for long sentences over non-violent crimes. Trump signed the First Step Act which gave prisoners a second chance at life by giving early release to prisoners who have shown they deserve it. The First Step Act helped many black families reunite with loved ones who they never thought they would see free again.
The Biden Democrats act like none of that happened.
Biden’s senior adviser was ginning up the urgency asserted by White House Press Secretary Jen Circle Back Psaki, who was asked two weeks ago about the president’s views on the reparations bill.
The Associated Press reported that while Psaki didn’t say that Biden would sign the legislation if it reaches his desk – we all know he will do whatever his progressive masters tell him to do – Psaki said during a press conference that “he certainly would support a study of reparations.” Who does she think she’s kidding? Biden would sign it today if put on his desk.
“He understands we don’t need a study to take action right now on systemic racism,” Psaki said, adding, “so he wants to take actions within his own government in the meantime.”
There is no systemic racism in America. There are too many black Americans who are living the American dream. If America were systemically racist there would not be successful black people. It wouldn’t be allowed. The Woke Supremacists want you to believe that if you deny systemic racism exists you’re saying there is no racism at all, which is a completely different argument, but these people are not rational. Racism exists in all its ugly forms, but to indict an entire country of people of being racist, which is exactly what they are doing when they claim America is systemically racist, is unfair and irrational, and forcing innocent people to pay for crimes they never committed most of whose ancestors also never committed is criminal.
America is becoming a “totalitarian state before our eyes” under President Joe Biden’s leadership, feminist author and former Democratic adviser to President Bill Clinton Naomi Wolf said to Tucker Carlson on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Monday’s show.
Wolf, who once worked as an adviser on Bill Clinton’s reelection campaign in 1996, told Carlson that what she is seeing is the United States is quickly “moving into a coup situation, a police state” as a result of Biden’s ongoing COVID-19-related lockdowns and business shutdowns. Wolf added that she believes the orders are being improperly extended under the “guise of a real medical pandemic.” In other words, the totalitarianists now in charge are lying to us.
“That is not a partisan thing,” Wolf said. “That transcends everything that you and I might disagree or agree on. That should bring together left and right to protect our Constitution.” I never in a million years would have thought I would hear Naomi Wolf speak like this because I disagree with her on just about everything but I am having a coming to Jesus moment on my understanding of this brave woman.
Wolf has stepped up her cautioning about extended lockdowns on social media in recent months. On November 8, just 5 days after the 2020 election, while the world was still watching the mountains of irregularities that went on during the theft of the election, Wolf bravely took to Twitter to admonish the Biden agenda on lockdowns.
“If I’d known Biden was open to ‘lockdowns’ as he now states, which is something historically unprecedented in any pandemic, and a terrifying practice, one that won’t ever end because elites love it, I would never have voted for him.”
Some might say she should have educated herself more on Joe Biden as 74 million Trump voters knew from the start that a Biden administration would take down the country using COVID-19 as a cudgel. I won’t hold it against her because many on the Left bought into the lies and hyperbolic messaging by every institution owned by the Left about Donald Trump being a dictator. But suffice it to say, Joe Biden literally ran on lockdowns. There was that infamous moment when he said during an interview that he would listen to the scientists and lock the country down if they told him to do it. Well, now the Left knows what totalitarianism looks like.
Wolf also pointed out how the state has been suspending our Bill of Rights.
“The state has now crushed businesses, kept us from gathering in free assembly to worship as the First Amendment provides, is invading our bodies … which is a violation of the Fourth Amendment, restricting movement, fining us in New York state … the violations go on and on,” she said.
Wolf, who previously wrote a book listing the ten steps that “would-be tyrants always take when they want to close down a democracy” – the 10 points can be read here – believes the United States is now reaching what she refers to as “step 10.”
Wolf told Carlson that she has been studying states that have fallen into totalitarianism for twelve years.
“Whether they are on the left or the right, they do these same ten things,” Wolf said, “and now we’re at something I never thought I would see in my lifetime … it is step 10 and that is the suspension of the rule of law and that is when you start to be a police state, and we’re here. There is no way around it.”
Wolf said she has interviewed American citizens of different backgrounds and political ideologies who are in a state of “shock and horror” as “autocratic tyrants at the state and now the national level are creating this kind of merger of corporate power and government power, which is really characteristic of totalism fascism in the ’20’s,” she told the host.
“They are using that to engage in emergency orders that simply strip us of our rights; rights to property, rights to assembly, rights to worship, all the rights the Constitution guarantees.”
Wolf argued that the United States’ response to the coronavirus pandemic was “completely unprecedented,” arguing that “lockdowns have never been done in society and really, we are turning into a totalitarian state before everyone’s eyes.”
Then she said something that frightened me, and I don’t scare easily.
“I really hope we wake up quickly,” she said, “because history also shows that it’s a small window in which people can fight back before it is too dangerous to fight back.”
When politicians remind us that elections have consequences they don’t normally mean that their successful campaigns will result in harming the very people and the country that they were elected to represent and protect. Such is the case, however, with the Biden administration. Switching up policies is something that always happens when a new administration takes power but it has always been with the same goals in mind, to make life better for Americans. New policies were just the other party’s belief in getting to the same goal in a different way. However, what the country has been witnessing since January 20 of this year is perhaps the first time in our history where a sitting president has gone out of his way to make life hard on the people and the country. Joe Biden swore an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution, which in turn means to preserve, protect, and defend the rights of the citizens of the United States as listed inside that Constitution. So far he has gone out of his way many times to do the exact opposite.
Take for example what Biden is doing with our southern border. By opening up the border to over 25,000 migrants asking for asylum and ordering all immigration law enforcement to stand down while hordes of migrants race their way to cross our border has absolutely no benefit to a single American citizen and will harm millions when all is said and done. The cost to American citizens in lost jobs, increased taxes, and increases in crime IS enough to impeach Biden, but no one is listening. The executive orders he has signed on immigration shows he is actively seeking to flood the country with people who mostly cannot take care of themselves and Biden is placing the cost of that burden on the rest of us. It seems like Biden wants to return to the broken immigration system of the past that Trump fixed. For example, Biden ended the policy of keeping asylum seekers in Mexico while waiting for their hearings. It was an effective program that reversed the Obama-Biden policies that allowed migrants into the country while waiting for their asylum hearings never to be seen again, a policy that turned “asylum seekers” into illegal aliens, which proved they were never asylum seekers in the first place. The Biden administration wants citizens terrified of coronavirus but they have no plans to test migrants pouring across our border for COVID-19. How does any of this make sense?
Why would an American president do this to his own people?
President Trump pulled us out of the disastrous Iran nuclear deal because written in the deal it gives Iran the legal right to have nuclear weapons fifteen years out. The Iranian regime was violating the deal almost the instant the Obama administration lied to the world by claiming they had an agreement even though the deal was never signed. I bet you didn’t know that which is an indictment on our mainstream news media. The fact that Obama did a deal of this magnitude without going for advice and consent by the US Senate because a deal like this is a treaty, was enough to impeach Obama. But nobody listened. Joe Biden has said that he wants to reengage in negotiations with Iran over the nuclear deal. Why does there have to be renegotiations when I thought it was a done deal? Why would Biden get us back into a deal that allows Iran, a terrorist regime, to obtain nukes in a deal that was never signed and was violated before the non-existing ink dried?
Why would an American president do this to his own people?
What Biden has done so far makes it seem like he wants to take the country back to the days of the Obama administration when the globalists were in charge and millions of American workers had to scramble to find work because backroom deals were made in the DC swamp that didn’t take them into consideration and usually ended up sending their jobs overseas.
If I remember correctly, and I do, the Obama years were horrible economically and it was directly because of the policies of Barack Obama and Joe Biden. They lied about everything. They manipulated the unemployment rate to make it appear lower than it really was. They created economic policies that never had a single year out of eight that saw 3 percent growth. They set race relations back 50 years with a race-hustling first black president and the overall feeling throughout the country was that we were in decline and we had better get used to it because it was the new normal.
The worst part about the Obama years was that they believed the lies they told themselves that everything they did was spectacular for the country and that they went 8 years without any major scandals that would have embarrassed them. They had a willing news media that acted as an army of stenographers who would write down everything the administration told them to say. This is why the Biden people believe we should be taken back to that time.
Donald Trump inherited a real mess from Obama-Biden with an economy that was failing along with the spirit of being an American waning by the day. Trump turned it all around in under the first two years of his presidency. This is why it’s maddening to listen to leftists in the media and elsewhere along with Democrats claiming the Trump years were so horrible when we all know he made America great again, and it is especially like a punch in the gut to see Joe Biden reversing all of the America First policies that brought so many people so much prosperity. It’s like the Democrats felt insulted that an outsider came in and showed them how it was done, and not only that but made it look easy. It seems like we’re living in an age of revenge.
Jealousy, anger, bitterness, and resentment can make people do strange things but to reverse policies that even folks with a double-digit IQ can clearly see worked for just about everyone denies belief in a Benevolent Being.
The frightening question to be asked is, what the hell are they planning next?
The Democrats are pulling another scam on the American taxpayer in that they are disguising progressive state bailouts as COVID-19 relief.
More than $50 billion is being given to New York as part of the Biden administration’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 rescue package.
We are now finding out, albeit at a piecemeal pace, that Governor Andrew Cuomo completely screwed up the handling of the pandemic virus, and a Cuomo administration aide said they faked the nursing home numbers because they said they feared the Trump administration. So, they lied and blamed Trump for it. Seems to be about par with how Democrats run things these days, but will Cuomo ever be held responsible for the deaths of all those innocent elderly patients who died because the governor forced COVID-19 positive patients into nursing homes.
New York’s government budget has been hammered by mismanagement and expensive progressive goodies programs they can’t pay for anymore because people are fleeing the state at a rapid pace.
So, now the Democrats are going to bail out states like New York that were fiscally irresponsible before COVID and they’re going to claim the bailouts are under the COVID rescue program.
On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sent a letter to the New York Democratic delegation alerting them of the bailout, er… COVID-19 relief money saying she believes the bill will pass by the end of February. And she’s certain it will pass because the Democrats are using the budget reconciliation avenue to pass the legislation without involving the Republicans.
In the letter, Pelosi points out the $12.6 billion is included for New York state pandemic recovery funding and $10.6 billion for local governments.
The New York transit system gets $8.8 billion, why Americans from all states have to pay for New York’s transit system is beyond me, but they are also handing out $12.3 billion for New York’s schools. Other than payouts to teachers’ unions, I haven’t been able to find out how that money is going to be spent. If my taxes are paying for that state’s schools, then I have a right to know.
New York small businesses are getting $483 billion and airports get $418 billion.
Don’t forget the DC Democrats originally decided to pay $600 to American citizens who Democrat governors and mayors put out of work with small business shutdowns and three times that amount for illegal aliens.
The state says it needs the money to pay for the massive $63 billion budget deficit owed because of revenue losses caused by the pandemic.
Pelosi praised New York’s two Democrats senators, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand for their “enthusiastic advocacy” in appropriating the bailout, er… funding.
Governor Cuomo, who has seen better days politically, especially after the firestorm that blew up after the New York Post exposed a story that the governor’s top aide admitted that they intentionally lowered the number of COVID deaths in nursing homes after they forced COIVD-19 positive patients in them, and she said it was because they feared the Trump administration would use that information to start a Justice Department investigation, was to meet with Biden in the Oval Office with a group of mayors and governors on Friday to talk about vaccinations and financial relief. Can you believe this? New York just got $50 billion and there’s Governor “We Neeeeeed” Cuomo asking for more.
An anonymous insider said that the governor’s office was “well aware” that the $50 billion was coming.
Cuomo, who did a horrible job in handling the COVID pandemic, but received an Emmy Award for his “masterful” coronavirus briefings forever ruining the sanctity of that award, pleaded with Washington for more pandemic relief after releasing a state budget proposal that is relying on %15 billion in federal funding, again our money.
One thing that hit most Americans like a gut punch is that after four years of a president who fought for the American worker, who made it a priority to keep his promises, and who brought America back to its prominence in the world with a soaring economy and full employment for every demographic and by all standards, the thing the has blown all of our minds is that after surviving last year with draconian lockdowns, with bankrupting small businesses across the country, and after experiencing the “summer of love” filled with riots and looting and businesses burning to the ground, businesses that had nothing to do with the rage that was happening in Democrat-run cities is that after putting up with all of that the same people who destroyed the world are now in charge of everything and they are targeting the great unwashed, the hated bourgeoisie, for destruction.
How we watched America turn around and become the country that our Founding Fathers wanted for us only to have it stolen away from us in the blink of an eye by people who won’t even acknowledge how the America First movement made America great again. And this happened all while the majority of Americans resisted the Marxist ideology that has taken over.
To be an icon of pop culture, a popular influencer on social media, to be a prestigious university, a powerful news anchor, a Hollywood starlet, a retired Congressman who now sits on the board of a news network, or a superstar athlete requires you either prove your progressive bona fides or you give up everything you believe in to join the Woke Supremacy.
Ninety-eight percent of Big Tech political donations were given to Democrats in 2020 according to the Center for Responsive Politics. And cash wasn’t all they gave. Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, Google, and other tech tyrants gave in-kind donations to Democrats when they censored conservative speech on their platforms and deplatformed people and companies who opposed the progressive Woke Supremacy. When Mark Zuckerberg spends $400 million of his own money to help solely Democrats get out the vote you know there’s something going on behind the scenes. I don’t care how much money someone has, people do not give $400 million for any cause without a damn good reason.
Amazon has a lot of business websites using its web services and they have demonstrated that they will kick them off simply because the Woke Supremacy demanded it. Google fixes their search results by pushing progressive result links to the top while making sure conservative links stay below, violating anti-trust laws because many businesses pay to have their links come up before other companies that didn’t pay as much for the same search keywords.
Big Tech runs the world in which we live in as the Information Age is all about technology and how information is handled through technology. It’s interesting how liberals were always against monopolies because of the power they garner over the “little guy,” yet they champion the Big Tech tyrants who use the exact same strategies as the robber barons in the 1800s. And they don’t even care enough to hide the fact that they help to cancel conservatives for the same things progressives do on a daily basis but never meet the same fate.
What’s worse is the progressives on these platforms told conservatives they didn’t want them there and so the conservatives finally got up their own platforms and they left the progressive ones. But now the same tech giants who wanted them off their platforms are taking down conservative platforms because they use some of the services to run their own technical equipment. Amazon dropping Parler from their services is a Prime example [pun intended]. Do you see how that works? We supported these platforms for over a decade thinking they were allowing everyone to express themselves and to use the services provided. We helped them to grow and become stronger and get rich at the same time. Now they’re using the power we helped them amass against us in the cruelest ways they can.
The masters of Silicon Valley have no love for the First Amendment’s Free Speech protections. They rule with brute force to silence any opposition to the Democratic Party’s ideology in a vicious cycle of pay-for-play. They donate money and in-kind services to the Democrats who in turn will never regulate them out of business. Progressives who have always had problems with rich corporations have no such apprehensions against Big Tech because they are the censors who silence the opposition.
There are some valuable lessons to take away from what recently happened in the GameStop stock drama. Rich hedge fund guys who think they are much smarter than the great unwashed retail investors make fortunes by targeting a vulnerable company’s stock by borrowing, not buying, that company’s stock from people who own the stock and then they begin working to drive the price of the stock down after they have already set themselves up to sell at a certain price. It’s a great scam that’s made legal because these guys donate a boatload of money to the Woke Supremacy that now runs DC. Think about it. They don’t have to purchase the stock in order to make money from it and the people they borrow the stock from get paid a fee to allow them to borrow the stock until they’re done with it and then give it back. So those people not only continue to make gains on the stock if it goes up but they also get paid these fees from people they loan the stock out to, the hedge fund wolves, and then after they kill the stock, and make money by selling the stocks short, they give the stock back to the people that they borrowed it from. It’s a great scam… for them.
The other side of this story that the Woke Supremacy will never talk about is that they kill an innocent company that could have made smart business decisions that would have brought them back from their vulnerability, and they also kill the investments of the great unwashed, the retail investors who have purchased those stocks only to watch them plunge because of the shenanigans of the hedge fund guys.
Well, a group of the great unwashed played the same game of the hedge fund guys only their tactic was to purchase a lot of the stock to make the price go up. There’s nothing illegal about that. While the hedge fund guys go on television finance shows to trash the company they targeted to get the stock to drop, a group of Reddit users got together to collectively purchase GameStop stock and made the price soar to over a hundred times what it was worth prior to their collective purchases.
The hedge fund guys lost fortunes while the retail investors did pretty well. And that’s when we learned that the system is rigged. They cried foul and got the powers that be involved to trash the great unwashed as if they did something illegal when all they did was beat the really smart rich hedge fund guys at their own game. They were enraged. They compared the retail investors to the Capitol rioters from January 6, and the dopey progressives in media and social media repeated it.
The hedge fund jerks tried to say that what the Reddit guys did was unhealthy for the system while censoring the fact that what they do every day is unhealthy for the system. Both the Reddit guys and the hedge fund losers forget is that taking actions that create artificial gains and losses is unhealthy for the financial system. The hedge fund guys just don’t want to admit it.
So the hedge fund guys got powerful people they know to step in and screw the great unwashed making it so that they could no longer purchase GameStop stock and could only sell their shares, which in the end helped the connivers in the hedge fund companies who wanted to destroy GameStop’s stock in the first place.
What we are learning from the rich financial guys to the Democrats in power to the mainstream media frauds that support both of the latter is that they have always hated the great unwashed, and they think the day should be like the European aristocrats of the golden days where they shouldn’t have to work for a living because they are so much smarter than the rest of us. Just ask them and they’ll tell you. I can guarantee you the overwhelming majority of these clouds have never worked a paper out, have never washed dishes for a living or swept floors cleaned grease out of the fryer. No, none of these people ever work jobs like that and they look down on those of us who have or still do. They completely hate our guts because we don’t properly worship them as our betters.
American amateur retail traders aren’t the only ones jumping in to invest in stocks that have been promoted on a popular Reddit board.
A bunch of retail investors is converging on historically not-so-loved stocks such as GameStop and Bed Bath & Beyond. Inspired by the Reddit board r/WallStreetBets, traders have jacked up the share price of these companies, with GameStop climbing over 1,000 percent in just two weeks. And their actions are no different from any other stock buyers in that they wanted to buy a stock and they did, all 100 percent legally and within the system’s rules.
This buoyant market action ended up giving heavy losses for some hedge funds, you know, the investors who make money by destroying a company by talking it down publicly only so that they can sell the stock shot and make a windfall. We reported on one of the most high profile cases which was Melvin Capital, the hedge fund firm that closed out its short position on GameStop after taking a gigantic loss.
This stock trading fever seems to be spreading overseas. The Finnish telecoms company Nokia on Wednesday was sucked into the frenzy of the market activity going on when it saw its US-listed shares jump up to 40 percent. Then on Thursday, the stock went down to about 23 percent in New York and about 13 percent for its Finland-listed shares.
Nokia gave a statement on Wednesday where the company said it doesn’t know of any recent corporate programs or developments “that would account for the recent increase in the market price or trading volume of its shares.” That makes sense because the increase in activity for its stock is because of a bunch of retail amateur investors who targeted the stock so that more of their own kind of people would buy it and thus cause the value to go up. There is nothing illegal about this, but the elite trader class on Wall St don’t like the phenomenon, because they and only they are allowed to manipulate the market and who cares if the hedge fund guys destroy a few companies in the practice of their selling short, right?
Trading 212 warned of disruption to its service due to an “unprecedented increase in demand” on Wednesday. The platform informed users Thursday that it was halting new positions in GameStop and AMC, another stock featured on r/WallStreetBets, “as highly unusual volumes have led to an unprecedented market environment.” In a tweet Thursday, the London-based firm said it had temporarily stopped onboarding new clients due to “unprecedented demand.”
Many other trading platforms saw stronger demand for stocks that were made prominent on the popular subReddit which now can boast 4.4 million users.
The popular instant messaging and chat site Discord banned r/WallStreetBets for “hate speech, glorifying violence, and spreading misinformation”, a spokesperson for Discord said. “To be clear, we did not ban this server due to financial fraud related to GameStop or other stocks” Right, it’s all just a perfectly understandable coincidence. They used the Woke Supremacy terms for cancel culture attacks, so now you know you shouldn’t use Discord anymore, because they do not have your best interests at heart. They are a part of the Supremacy. It’s ironic too because the term discord means a disagreement between people. So now all of these amateur traders are what, white supremacists? This is insanity!
The British firms Freetrade and Hargreaves Lansdown are said to be monitoring the situation, while an Israeli trading service called eToro told CNBC it will continue to urge their customers “to be mindful of their actions and protective of their capital.”
“In today’s highly volatile market conditions, we have been urging our users to stick to the basics of investing: diversify, avoid leverage, and only invest in markets and instruments with which you are familiar,” the eToro spokesperson said. “We have been working to remind our users that regardless of whether or not some stocks are in bubble territory, such a strong bull rally should be approached with caution.”
Some of the great unwashed European amateur investors told CNBC they bought shares that were recommended on the r/WallStreetBets subreddit.
A trader who wished to remain anonymous from Dublin said she put money into AMC and Blackberry because they were recommended by a Reddit user and that her investment is now up.
Richard Forde, a 31-year-old communications professional in Dublin, bought up shares of Nokia, BlackBerry, and AMC on recommendations from the r/WallStreetBets group on Reddit, and according to Forde, he’s up 25 percent all across his shares in GameStop, Nokia, BlackBerry, and AMC.
What’s going on is a fairly large amount of people have been turned on to trading online during the COVID-19 lockdowns. The Reddit users got sick and tired of hedge fund guys screwing over their stock investments by selling short. It’s not just that the hedge fund elites used strategies to sell stocks short, many of which the Reddit users owned shares, but it was the fact that they would then go on CNBC and other platforms like YouTube channels and whatnot and trash talk the stock to force the price to go down as skittish investors who didn’t wanna lose their money when they heard the so-called “experts” telling them to dump the stock. So, the amateur retail investors did the exact opposite and started buying targeted stocks to make the value go up. But the elites didn’t like it when they took a bath for once. The difference is that unlike the great unwashed amateur investors, the elites have friends in high places.
