A centipede of corruption

Silicon Valley has a problem with conservatives. But not the political kind. By Caroline McCarthy – “Silicon Valley is a young atheist’s world — and that’s becoming a problem.” But she does describe bigotry and numerous ‘isms’ that plague the Left. She describes a lack of self awareness and a tossing aside of the intellectual integrity that is necessary for entrepreneurial success. It can be tossed aside because of the wealth generated by others (but this isn’t a part of her story).

“when the fringes have enormous influence over the culture and its perception, there’s a problem. Silicon Valley holds vast economic influence, and it needs to be open to hiring and retaining employees who don’t fit its image. Without it, paradoxically, an industry and culture that professes progressivism, open-mindedness, and a devotion to science and empiricism ends up becoming the most exclusionary and prone to magical thinking.

McGowan and Argento inadvertantly explain Bourdain’s suicide by Monica Showalter – “It goes to show just how warped Hollywood’s values are.” This is a manifestation of the ‘Silicon Valley Problem’ described above.

“McGowan doesn’t even know how gross her statements sound because she has embraced the propaganda herself. After all, who could be in favor of dreadful borders in relationships and not embrace free birds? Probably just Trump-supporters.

The circumstantial evidence is actually pretty strong that this is what sent Bourdain off the deep end.

The problem was the free bird values. What she did was inadvertantly highlight that the embrace of “free bird” values, which so contradict human nature and human desire, is what took Bourdain’s life. Sadly, none of these people here can even see it.

Investor’s Business Daily: How Many Dems Agree With Bill Maher’s Recession Wish? – “Rather than rooting on the strong economy, Democrats have taken to ignoring it, belittling it or, like Bill Maher did over the weekend, rooting for a recession. The extent to which Trump critics will go is truly mind-boggling.” And, yes, this is also related to the Silicon Valley Problem.

“Dismissing this good economic news as meaningless — after spending eight years proclaiming how great the stagnant economy was under Obama — isn’t going to dispel the notion that Democrats are out of touch with working families.

Maher would, if he could, throw millions of people into unemployment and poverty, watch as hard-earned savings vanish, wages stagnate and hope gets crushed, if that might keep Trump from winning re-election.

Wow.

Of course, it’s easy for Maher to wish that, since he’s already made his millions attacking Republicans. But just how many of his fellow Trump-loathing Democrats secretly feel the same way?

Reporters love to force Republican politicians to answer for anything outrageous that a conservative says. Shouldn’t these same reporters, to prove their lack of political bias, press every single Democrat running for office in November to condemn Maher’s economic death wish?

The Democrats’ IT Scandal Cover-Up by Daniel John Sobieski – “Former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz subverted our democracy and interfered in the 2016 election in ways Moscow could only dream of

“What the Democrats accused the Russians of doing, Debbie Wasserman Shultz’s DNC was actively doing. And considering what we have found out about the Pakistanis, not the Russians, that were brought in to run their IT operation, it makes sense as to why the DNC refused to turn over their servers to FBI forensic investigators. What else where they trying to hide?

One thing they tried to hide was Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s curious relationship with Pakistani Imran Awan.

One suspects that if the case involved 40 or more Republican members of Congress things might be moving along more speedily. As it is, this may be the third time a curious relationship has jeopardized U.S. national security while mucking up our political and legal systems. FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page gleefully pursued a relationship as they sought an ”insurance policy” against Donald Trump assuming the presidency. Senate intelligence committee aide James Wolfe was caught leaking documents to New York Times national security reporter Ali Watkins, with whom he had a relationship. And now we have Wasserman Schultz and Awan’s curious relationship

This is just one of many shoes waiting to drop from the Democrat’s centipede of corruption. Crimes were committed here, possibly including Wasserman Schultz and leading Democrats. Yet a cover-up could be in the works. Let’s not take our eves off this corner of the swamp.

Jaws drop when Jim Acosta busts up historic moment for peace with disgraceful inappropriate questions by Renee Hayes – “Hours after Acosta’s antics, Trump held a press conference where he was able to take reporters’ questions at an appropriate time.”

Federal judge halts secret FEC plot to target GOP groups by Paul Bedard – “A federal judge has blown the whistle on a secret Federal Election Commission scheme to punish some Republican groups and their donors, the latest sign of an anti-GOP bias at the elections watchdog.”

“Asked if the cases before the FEC are biased, Ann Ravel said, “Absolutely. The cases have come primarily from watchdog groups, and most of those groups are on the liberal side.”

Graham to Trump: Better bring that agreement back to the Senate by Ed Morrissey – “Ratification would be a rather historic step.” This one is more about Lindsey Graham posturing and TDS than anything else.

“On the larger issue of ratification, though, there seems to be one big problem: what is there to ratify? At least as laid out at the moment, the “agreement” that the two leaders signed contains a series of aspirational goals, not concrete commitments to specific actions and objectives. It’s a good first step to have two men who were trading insults over the size of their nuclear capacities to shake hands and settle on a shared set of diplomatic goals, but it’s just a first step, unless there was more to the agreement than anyone’s letting on. That may be what Graham is worried about.

There’s a lot of anticipation of the negative despite anything to show it is warranted. Some are hoping for the negative to confirm their fantasies. So there’s a lot of self destruction – suicide – going on.
