Who's Funding the Coronavirus Political Trolls?

Everyone gave something. Steven Spielberg and his wife gave $100,000. His former partner, Jeffrey Katzenberg, gave another $100,000. The producers of Lost gave over $50,000. Jett actress Carla Gugino also chipped in. Not to relief efforts dealing with the coronavirus, but to a hate campaign against Trump. Everyone has their own brand of patriotism, and for some Hollywood celebrities, that meant giving big to Pacronym: a sleazy money machine targeting President Trump run by Tara McGowan. McGowan, a former 60 Minutes vet reporter turned Obama hack, was supposed to brilliantly transform Dem campaigning with innovative tactics like seeding fake news through fake local papers under Courier Newsroom, and Shadow Inc: the mysterious company behind the Iowa caucus disaster. But McGowan has never found a sewer she couldn’t crawl out of and is relaunching her reputation by using the coronavirus crisis to run digital ads attacking President Trump. And donors to Pacronym, a PAC affiliate of

A $50 Billion Airline Bailout for Warren Buffett

In March, as the Wuhan Flu was taking off in America, the Oracle of Omaha began buying airline stocks. Specifically, one of the wealthiest men in the country increased his stake in Delta Airlines to 11%. Warren Buffett wasn’t oblivious to the coronavirus. The University of Nebraska Medical Center, not far from the black gated mansion of the billionaire, was on the front lines of fighting the outbreak. Passengers from the Diamond Princess cruise ship were being treated 5 minutes from his house. What was Warren Buffett thinking when he shoved $45 million more in good money after bad? Berkshire Hathaway now owns 11% of Delta Airlines, and between 8% and 10% of United Airlines, Southwest Airlines, and American Airlines. When you’re squeezed into a 17-inch airline seat, it’s because a major funder of Democrat political causes is extracting maximum value from his investment. And now Airlines for America, whose major members include American, Delta, United, and Southwest, along with l

Coronavirus Communism Comes to California

A few weeks after Californians cast their votes for Bernie Sanders, there are huge lines to buy toilet paper. Toilet paper, like dairy products and cleaning supplies, are limited to two per household. Savvy shoppers have learned, like their counterparts in the old Soviet Union, to get what they need by bartering what they can buy. Toilet paper for antibacterial soap. Milk for wipes. Yakov Smirnoff had spent his career joking about standing on line to buy toilet paper and discovering that the government store wasn't even selling toilet paper, but something to be bartered for it. "If I start making jokes about a shortage of toilet paper in America, it won`t make any sense because you walk into a store and see 15 brand names of toilet paper," he had once told a newspaper. "Yesterday I stood in line for two hours waiting for CVS truck to unload. Everyone was waiting for alcohol and toilet paper. I felt like I was back in Soviet Russia," Smirnoff, who now liv

You Can’t Get Hand Sanitizer Because of the Government

After the Wuhan Flu hit America, the Democrats decided that America should be more like China. New York's Governor Andrew Cuomo, who got his job the same way as many totalitarian leaders, by being the son of the guy who used to have the job, led the way to the People's Republic of America. Or, the People's Republic of Sanitizeristan. "We are introducing New York State Clean hand sanitizer, made conveniently by the state of New York. This is a superior product to products now on the market," Governor Cuomo declared. “To Purell, and Mr. Amazon and Mr. eBay, if you continue the price gouging, we will introduce our product, which is superior to your product. And you don't even have the floral bouquet, so stop price gouging.” The specific part of the state making NYS Clean is the Great Meadow Correctional Facility: a maximum-security prison which Cuomo had visited two years ago to address the constant violence in the prison. His new message to the convict

The Indecency of Joe Biden

Quick, when I say “Joe Biden”, you say, “decency”. "Vote for decency, vote for dignity," Senator Amy Klobuchar said in her endorsement of Biden. Biden, Senator Kamala Harris, claimed in her endorsement, would, "restore truth, honor, and decency." Michael Bloomberg endorsed Biden, arguing that he possesses, “decency, honesty and commitment." Pete Buttigieg hailed Biden’s, “fundamental decency”, which he mentioned three times on MSNBC. "Joe Biden is decent. He’s kind. He’s caring. He’s empathetic," insisted Beto O'Rourke. These were obviously coincidences. There's no reason to think that Tom Perez had been working Amy, Beto, Pete, Kamala, and Michael over with a wet towel and talking points in the basement of the DNC. If you doubt that, here's more of the decency parade. Susan Rice, a woman who once had decency droned, endorsed Biden's "compassion and decency". As did her former colleague, Samantha Power, prais

Rep. Omar and Rep. Tlaib Couldn't Deliver Their States or Districts for Bernie

When Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rallied with Senator Bernie Sanders at New York City’s largest housing project where her politics had cost the city 25,000 jobs, it was the big radical moment. Sanders had the endorsement of the Squad which was going to hand him the nomination. The Left unified behind the Vermont socialist as Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Ilhan Omar, and Rep. Rashida Tlaib hit the campaign trail for him. The Sanders campaign, already extreme, became more radical with imams like Omar Suleiman, “Zionists are the enemies of God”, and Al-Hassan Qazwini, Sanders is “an honorable man, even though he is a Jew”, appearing at Bernie Sanders rallies uniting the red and the green. Along with Sunnis and Shiites for Sanders. The uselessness of the Squad was already apparent when Rep. Ayanna Pressley, the one member of the Squad who had backed Senator Elizabeth Warren, saw Biden win her district. But it just got worse for the Squad from there. In Minnesota, Rep. Ilhan Omar

The CDC was Fighting Racism and Obesity Instead of Stopping Epidemics

The Centers for Disease Control has a $6.6 billion budget and one job which it messes up every time. The last time the CDC had a serious workout was six years ago during the Ebola crisis. Back then CDC guidelines allowed medical personnel infected with Ebola to avoid a quarantine and interact with Americans until they showed undeniable symptoms of the disease. There were no protocols in place for treating the potentially infected resulting in the further spread of the disease inside the United States. At the height of the crisis, confidence in the CDC fell to 37%. Meanwhile, CDC personnel had managed to mishandle Ebola virus samples, accidentally sending samples of the live virus to CDC labs. And the heads of the health bureaucracy blamed the lack of funding for their failure to have an Ebola vaccine. The self-quarantine measures adopted in response to the coronavirus outbreak are partially a response to the lessons of the Ebola disaster. But during the Ebola crisis, Democrats

Bernie's Billionaire: How the Richest Man in Hawaii Funds Bernie’s PR and Opposition Research

If there’s one thing everyone knows about Senator Bernie Sanders, it’s that he hates billionaires. Now a newly minted millionaire and member of the 1%, Sanders reserves all his old hatred for millionaires, exclusively for billionaires. Billionaires shouldn’t exist, he insists. And while Bernie virtue signals about not having a PAC or taking money from billionaires, a big chunk of his media operation is financed by Pierre Omidyar, the founder of eBay, and the richest man in Hawaii. Omidyar, a Franco-Persian who lives in Hawaii, pledged $250 million to First Look Media. FLM’s signature project is The Intercept, a radical leftist, anti-American, and anti-Semitic media hate site. And The Intercept has a clear and definite candidate in the 2020 race. The Intercept’s election coverage is filled with hysterical Sanders cheerleading, recent samples include, "The Power of Solidarity Is How Sanders Will Beat Trump", "At Iowa Debate, Bernie Sanders's Biggest Oppone

The Humanitarian Weapons of Refugees

71 years after NATO was founded to watch for an invasion, the invaders came from a NATO country. After Turkey’s brutal Islamist regime suffered setbacks in its grandiose scheme to rebuild the Ottoman Empire by invading Syria, it decided to launch an invasion of a much softer target. Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu has, with sublime chutzpah, kept a running count of the number of Muslim migrants invading Europe through Adrianople (renamed Edirne by its Turkish Islamic occupiers) on his Twitter account. At last count, the number of invaders was 100,577. Soylu’s tweets are the equivalent of sending ransom notes while holding a gun to the head of the EU. That 100,000 is a down payment. Turkey’s Islamist regime is threatening an invasion of millions. And NATO is absolutely helpless to stop a NATO country from masterminding an invasion of Europe. "Hundreds of thousands have crossed, soon it will reach millions," Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the brutal Islamist thug fantasizing

Elizabeth Warren Lost Because Women are Sexist

Senator Elizabeth Warren née Herring only lost the Democrat primaries because of sexism. Hillary Clinton blamed Warren's setbacks on "unconscious bias" and "gendered language". If only the media had referred to Warren as "him" or "xer" while being unconscious, it might be the nominee. "Sexism Sank Elizabeth Warren," bleats The Nation. "Gender is at the core of this," Salon insists. There’s no such thing as gender when it comes to castrating 7-year-old boys, or in weightlifting competitions, but is a serious problem for the political ambitions of millionaire 70-year-old professors. Vox even falsely claims that "women are feeling so defeated after Elizabeth Warren's loss". If women are feeling so defeated by Warren’s primary faceplant, why didn’t they vote for her? In her home state of Massachusetts, 34% of women voted for Joe Biden, 36% for Bernie Sanders, and only 24% for her. That's 1 in 4

The Pro-Sanders Vegan Cult That’s Upstaging 2020 Democrats

Like its namesake, the Biden campaign does odd and inexplicable things. Even as a panicked Democrat establishment united to boost him to a win on Super Tuesday, Biden was in the one major state that he lost badly to Bernie Sanders. And when he decided to give a loudly incoherent victory speech, he did it in Los Angeles, putting him within reach of Bernie Sanders supporters and animal rights activists. Two of them upstaged him and birthed a thousand memes by leaping on to the stage with anti-dairy signs. One of the women was a veteran animal rights activist and the other, whom Jill Biden was photographed pushing away from her husband, is a passionate Bernie Sanders supporter who can be seen wearing a Sanders campaign t-shirt reading, “I’ve got a Bern-ing passion” on Instagram. The same group had targeted Elizabeth Warren on Super Tuesday. Three vegan activists, one of them an aspiring actress and other two semi-topless, one of whom had written, “Die” on her stomach, held up, “Let Da
