Trump-Russia Allegation Shows Intelligence is Being Politicized

Adam Schiff

Fred Lucas of the Daily Signal has a piece titled, “‘Here We Go Again’: 4 Things to Know About New Russia-Trump Election Meddling Narrative.” The New York Times reported that U.S. intelligence officials recently briefed the House Intelligence Committee and asserted that Russia is meddling in the 2020 election to the benefit of President Trump. According to the Times, no specifics were offered to back the assertion. From the Daily Signal:

“This shows that the president is still faced with people in the bureaucracy that want to impede and destroy his presidency. It also shows how intelligence is being politicized,” Flaherty said. “Intelligence should bear some resemblance to reality. It would seem the Kremlin would want Democrats to win.”    

The factual questions indicate a real problem, said Peter Flaherty, president of the National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group.

Bezos Throws Billion$ at Climate Extortionists

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos

At the moment, can you think of a bigger man-child multi-billionaire than Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos?

His behavior speaks of someone who was handed a massive inheritance and did nothing to earn it, rather than the from-the-bootstraps tech entrepreneur that he actually is.

His billions (as the world’s wealthiest man, according to Forbes) and his ascent to notoriety appear to have driven him to obsess over his image, but rather than actually conduct himself like a responsible grown-up, he would rather throw money around in futile attempts to come off as more responsible and mature than he is.

For example, consider his recent announcement that he will dedicate $10 billion of his personal wealth to “fight climate change.” It’s hard to imagine a business that belches more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than the deliver-everywhere, mega-cloud-computing Amazon. Between package transport vehicles (oil) and massive … Read More ➡

As progressives continue to harass legitimate businesses involved in perfectly legal activities, just because they run afoul of the Left’s social agenda, some Republican Senators are getting fed up and hope to brush back the pressure groups with new laws

As has been the case on issues such as global warming, oil and gas pipelines, and gun manufacturing, the radicals’ have increasingly targeted big banks, which they attempt to shame and coerce into de-funding businesses associated with projects with which they disapprove. Those financial institutions, averse to unpleasant public relations, often cave to their demands.

One recent example of their capitulation is the funding of private companies that contract with the federal government to manage prisons and detention centers for immigrants who have entered the United States illegally. Two of these … Read More ➡


Will Big Banks Cave to Climate Activists?

For decades labor unions have utilized the tactics of corporate campaigns, which single out and target individual companies with public pressure via shaming and critical attacks, in order to get them to surrender and accept unionization of their workers.

Other activists behind various progressive causes have adopted the strategy in order to advance their agendas. Not the least of these are the shrill climate change warriors, who battle against the “evils” of the fossil fuels that energize almost every aspect of our everyday modern lives.

So far environmental pressure groups like Greenpeace and 350.org have gone after the obvious targets: coal and oil companies; public utilities like Duke Energy and American Electric Power; the automobile industry; and tech companies like Apple and Amazon who churn massive amounts of electricity for cloud computing services and the like.

Now their target is the lifeblood of every … Read More ➡


NBA Asked to Embrace Hong Kong Protests; Warriors-Wizards Game Scene of Pro-Freedom Demonstrations

National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) is asking the National Basketball Association (NBA) to endorse the demands of the Hong Kong protesters.

In a letter to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, NLPC Chairman Peter Flaherty wrote, “The league’s present position of neutrality on events in Hong Kong and China is morally untenable, and even that neutrality is fake.” The complete letter appears below.

On Monday night, supporters of the Hong Kong protesters demonstrated inside the Washington Wizards-Golden State Warriors game at Capital One Arena in Washington, DC. Sporting t-shirts and waving signs, the group chanted “Free Hong Kong.”

Flaherty stated, “The protests in Hong Kong are not going away. We are here to demonstrate that they are not going away here either.”

In October, Warriors President Rick Welts said on CNBC about the controversy, “I think this will pass, and I think our future in China is pretty remarkable.”

Since October, … Read More ➡
