Kamala goes full commie with video praising “equality of outcome.” Let me show how horrid this idea actually is.

2020-11-02 Joel Abbott

“Equitable treatment means we all end up at the same place,” said Harris, finishing her idea of a utopia on earth.

This all sounds nice. It sounds great on the surface. It doesn’t even sound socialistic to the untrained ear. This language of “equity,” however, drives at a core idea of socialism: the uniform equality of outcome for all people.

U.S. court: Mass surveillance program exposed by Snowden was illegal

2020-09-02 Raphael Satter

(Reuters) – Seven years after former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden blew the whistle on the mass surveillance of Americans’ telephone records, an appeals court has found the program was unlawful – and that the U.S. intelligence leaders who publicly defended it were not telling the truth.

Trump admits he ‘often’ regrets tweets, retweets get him ‘into trouble’, in interview with Barstool Sports founder

2020-07-25 Joseph A. Wulfsohn

“Do you sometimes — because I follow you on Twitter and I know I do this… do you ever tweet out and be like — you wake up and, ‘Aw man, I wish I didn’t send that one out’?” Portnoy asked.

“Often, too often,” Trump responded. “It used to be in the old days before this, you’d write a letter and you’d say this letter is very big. You put it on your desk and then you go back tomorrow and you say, ‘Oh, I’m glad I didn’t send it,’ right? But we don’t do that with Twitter, right? We put it out instantaneously, we feel great, and then you start getting phone calls — ‘Did you really say this?’ I say, ‘What’s wrong with that?’ and you find out a lot of things.”

What We Believe – Black Lives Matter

2020-07-11 Black Lives Matter Foundation, Inc

We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.

Why the US military usually punishes misconduct but police often close ranks

2019-12-06 Dwight Stirling

When police are revealed to have killed an unarmed suspect or used excessive force during arrest, police generally defend those actions. Cops who report wrongdoing are routinely ostracized as “rats” and denied promotions, according to a 1998 Human Rights Watch study. Researchers identify this so-called “blue wall of silence” – the refusal to “snitch” on other officers – as a defining feature of U.S. cop culture today.

U.S. military culture stresses organizational, rather than personal, loyalty.

And the pride Marines famously feel, for instance, comes from being part of this well-respected corps. Personal relationships with other Marines are of secondary importance.
