Audio: Anti-Trump Forces Fake A Hostile Republican Town Hall | The Daily Caller

Audio: Anti-Trump Forces Fake A Hostile Republican Town Hall | The Daily Caller:

 "Leaked audio from an anti-Trump protest group meeting reveals activists with anti-Trump group Indivisible plotting how to best manufacture a hostile environment at a town hall with Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana on Friday.

The audio, obtained by local radio station KPEL, reveals a coordinated effort to create the public impression that Cassidy’s support for Trump is unpopular with his constituents. The activists, who describe themselves as liberals in the audio, can be heard strategizing how to best turn a local town hall into a political victory."


Before Flint’s Lead Crisis, City Council Raided Money from 'Water Fund'

Before Flint’s Lead Crisis, City Council Raided Money from 'Water Fund' [Michigan Capitol Confidential]
"A few years before Flint’s lead crisis, city officials were taking money from a dedicated municipal water fund to pay for other uses. 
These fund-raids continued — using water service revenues to pay for unrelated city spending — even as the water fund accumulated a $9 million deficit in 2011.
Those were among the findings of a state review team that examined Flint’s books, which led it to recommend that the state appoint an emergency manager to take control of the city’s finances.
Image result for Flint’s Lead CrisisWhile that state review is now five years old, its findings warrant another look as they are relevant to later decisions city officials took leading up to the water contamination crisis.
The review team examined Flint’s financial condition in October and November of 2011. 
It found the city’s total debt had risen from $1.5 million in 2007 to $25.7 million in 2011. 
The city’s annual revenues rose from $104.5 million at the start of the period to $109.0 million in 2011.
The growing debt was the result of five years in which the city council and mayor failed to balance the city’s budget and control spending.
From 2009 to 2011, Flint officials took about $10 million from water service operations to pay for general city operations. 

  • These raids contributed to a growing hole in the city water fund.
  • Officials also raided Flint’s sewage disposal fund, taking $61 million for general city operations from 2001 to 2011.
  • And the city’s leaders broke state road funding laws by taking just over $1.0 million from the local street fund.

They were nuts before the election. Nutsier now-----Beware the Trump brain rot: The cognitive effects of this administration’s actions could be disastrous

Beware the Trump brain rot: The cognitive effects of this administration’s actions could be disastrous - Salon.com:
"...While there is little question that the Trump team is set to unravel our democracy, our foreign relations and every stitch of political progress our nation has ever made; that isn’t all that is at stake here.
Image result for trump derangement
...In an effort to crowdsource some of the responses, I asked more than 1,200 people via Facebook and email and received the following list: “wearing me out,” “burning me out,” “frying my brains,” “beyond belief,” “turning my mind into mush,” “brain overload,” “mental meltdown,” “crippling depression,” “constant low level dread,” “making me numb,” “stressing me out,” “abject horror,” “disoriented and scared” and “scaring me to death.”
Others offered descriptions such as “nonstop,” “overwhelming,” “relentless,” “mind-blowing,” “devastating,” “exasperating” and “surreal.”
One friend wrote, “I often wake up in the middle of the night thinking about Trump and unable to get back to sleep from anxiety.“ ...
In our efforts to make sense of all this we have often turned to George Orwell’s “1984.” While the dystopian novel has a lot of insight to offer, it can’t actually capture the cognitive effects of Trumpism. 
And that’s because the Trump team is not just brainwashing us or numbing our brains with Newspeak. 
It is actually implementing, consciously or not, a complex five-point strategy poised to make our minds shut down. .."

And The Winner Isn't...

• Chart: And The Winner Isn't... | Statista:
"...Many talented and popular actors are still waiting for an Academy Award despite having long and successful careers with countless nominations.
Peter O'Toole is probably the unluckiest actor in Oscar history. 
Throughout his career, he collected eight nominations but he never won and passed away in December 2013. 
Richard Burton's story is similar with seven nominations and no win. 
Glenn Close and Deborah Kerr have each been nominated six times but they have also missed out. Other well known actors in the club include Bradley Cooper (4 nominations) as well as Sigourney Weaver and Tom Cruise with three each.

FL Sheriff: We're Arrested Illegal Alien Predators on a Daily Basis

FL Sheriff: We're Arrested Illegal Alien Predators on a Daily Basis:

 "Liberals have blinded themselves — and attempted to blind others — to the detrimental effects of illegal immigration in favor of being more “politically correct” than their conservative counterparts.

However, one Florida sheriff just explained the true epidemic surrounding illegal aliens that completely destroyed the liberal narrative regarding open borders and lax immigration laws.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom” that illegal immigrants have been committing felonies and “preying on people” in communities “across the United States.”"

White Men Should Pay 5% Extra In Taxes Because They’re Privileged

White Men Should Pay 5% Extra In Taxes Because They’re Privileged:

The article, titled, “It’s Time for White People to Pay for Privilege: The Equality Tax,”argues that all minorities face economic disadvantages.
“Racist employers, a disproportionate targeting of minorities by law enforcement, racial wage gaps, poor inner city schools; these all contribute to what is an undeniable reality for minorities,” the article claims.
To fix this, white people should pay a higher tax to make up for their privilege. The writer suggests a five percent tax to start with. A single white man should pay a five percent “equality tax,” while a single white woman would only pay 4.5 percent in the “equality tax...”

Hollywood Shamefully Promotes Communism at Oscars

Hollywood Shamefully Promotes Communism at Oscars:

"Some may know what they’re doing and likely some are just wearing them because they’re useful idiots.

 The deceptively misnamed American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) was founded by an anti-American, anti-Christian communist, Roger Baldwin, who stated upon the organization’s founding in 1920 that “communism is the goal” of the group. He believed that he could deceive America’s useful idiots by establishing a communist front group that masqueraded as a patriotic, all-American, human rights organization.

“I am for socialism, disarmament, and ultimately for abolishing the state itself as an instrument of violence and compulsion,” Baldwin told allies in 1928. “I seek social ownership of all property, the abolition of the propertied class, and sole control by those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal.”"

One organizer of ‘A Day Without a Woman’ is a convicted terrorist – TheBlaze

 One organizer of ‘A Day Without a Woman’ is a convicted terrorist – TheBlaze:

"The next Women’s March, scheduled for March 8, is a worldwide general strike billed as “A Day Without A Woman.” But one woman will certainly be in attendance because she’s an organizer of the event — and a convicted terrorist."


KKK Leader David Duke Supports Democrat Party Deputy Chair and Muslim Keith Ellison

KKK Leader David Duke Supports Democrat Party Deputy Chair and Muslim Keith Ellison
It is no surprise that the Democratic Party which founded the racist hate group the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) would also be the first party to support an outspoken Jew hating Muslim in Keith Ellison for the Party’s head position.
So it is also no surprise that KKK leader David Duke tweeted his support for Ellison for the DNC head post.
It’s unknown what Duke meant by “I mean, at least he knows”.
In spite of gaining the support of former KKK Democrat Congressman David Duke, Minnesota Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison lost his bid to become the chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) on Saturday.
...The Main Stream Media attacked candidate Donald Trump before the election for not denouncing David Duke for statements made about Trump.  Let’s see what they say about Duke supporting the new DNC Jew hating Deputy Chair.
So will this make any headlines in the liberal media?

The Man Who Warned Us About Islam 750 Years Ago is Still Relevant Today | JewFacts:

"The 13th-century scholar Thomas Aquinas, regarded as one of the most eminent medieval philosophers and theologians, offered a biting critique of Islam based in large part on the questionable character and methods of its founder, Mohammed.

According to Aquinas, Islam appealed to ignorant, brutish, carnal men and spread not by the power of its arguments or divine grace but by the power of the sword."

Scientists: Here's What Really Causes Climate Change (And It Has Nothing To Do With Human Beings) | Daily Wire:
"A new study produced by a University of Wisconsin-Madison geoscientist and Northwestern astrophysicist presents an explanation of the fluctuations of the earth's temperatures that global warming alarmists are going to make sure to bury: The cycle of changes in the climate over the millennia is a result of changes in the amount of solar radiation, in part caused by small changes in the orbits of Earth and Mars. 
While the notion that the impact on earth's orbital cycle on solar radiation levels is the most significant factor determining global temperatures is anything but new, the team of scientists seem to have tied the phenomenon to planetary orbits in a more concrete manner than previous studies.
VIDEOSeven Earth-like planets found that could have life

'Uber Is Doomed', Argues Transportation Reporter

'Uber Is Doomed', Argues Transportation Reporter - Slashdot
"When an Uber self-driving car ran a red light last year, they blamed and suspended the car's driver, even though it was the car's software that malfunctioned, according to two former employees, ultimately causing Uber cars to run six different red lights. But technical issues may be only the beginning. An anonymous reader writes:
Image result for I'm a Uber Driver MemeJalopnik points out that in 2016 Uber "burned through more than $2 billion, amid findings that rider fares only cover roughly 40% of a ride, with the remainder subsidized by venture capitalists" (covering even less than the fares of government-subsidized mass transit systems). So despite Google's lawsuit and other recent bad publicity, "even when those factors are removed, it's becoming more evident that Uber will collapse on its own." 

Their long analysis argues that the problems are already becoming apparent. "Uber, which didn't respond to questions from Jalopnik about its viability, recently paid $20 million to settle claims that it grossly misled how much drivers could earn on Craigslist ads. The company's explosive growth also fundamentally required it to begin offering subprime auto loans to prospective drivers without a vehicle."

Last month transportation industry analyst Hubert Horan calculated that Uber Global's losses have been "substantially greater than any venture capital-funded startup in history."

Smart Road to Parked Car: Talk to Me

Smart Road to Parked Car: Talk to Me - IEEE Spectrum:
"When cars start talking both to one another and to traffic signals, they will sometimes suffer from the cellphone user’s bane: dropped calls.
That’s because there won’t always be enough cars roaming around to serve as partners or relays.
So why not have access to parked cars?
parked carsThey’re shiny, they’re rested, and they are there precisely when you need them most—when few cars are plying the roads.
Until now, most concepts for smart roads have planned to fill gaps in the chain of communication with relay stations.
You find such roadside units, as they’re called, in Japan and in parts of Europe.
The problem is, each one carries an upfront cost of around US $50,000, according [PDF] to the U.S. General Accounting Office.
Throw in maintenance and amortization and the annual cost can average $18,000.
“That’s why the U.S. government hasn’t deployed them massively,” says Ozan Tonguz, a professor of electrical engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, in Pittsburgh.
Tonguz hopes to get around the weak infrastructure by wringing more networking power out of the cars themselves.
“The idea is that once people park their cars, this amenity is already there for others..."

American College of Pediatrics reaches decision: Transgenderism of children is child abuse | BizPac Review

American College of Pediatrics reaches decision: Transgenderism of children is child abuse | BizPac Review:

"The American College of Pediatricians issued a statement this week condemning gender reclassification in children by stating that transgenderism in children amounts to child abuse.

 “The American College of Pediatricians urges educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. Facts – not ideology – determine reality.”

The policy statement, authored by Johns Hopkins Medical School Psychology Professor Paul McHugh, listed eight arguments on why gender reclassification is harmful.

1. Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: “XY” and “XX”
