David Hogg protests outside NRA HQ — protected by armed guards?

Anti-gun protester David Hogg hates guns — but apparently not enough to not be protected by them.

Hogg and a collective of anti-Second Amendment agitators protested outside the NRA headquarters on Saturday, and as the group points out, he was protected by armed guards.

The NRA’s photos show, among other things, Hogg with several security agents.

For his part, Hogg unwittingly tweeted a photo showing additional armed security protecting him.

In an attempt to ridicule the pro-2A counter-protesters, the student undermined his own message.

Hogg’s photo shows at least three men who appear to be security agents. Armed police officers stand in the parking lot, ready to protect the teen with big, bad guns. [snip]

This isn’t unusual; Rosie O’Donnell also rants about guns. She has armed security at home and on the street.

The normal cant from the Left is “It’s good for thee, but not for me” is as common as stink on a hog.

NYT’s Sarah Jeong Also Sent Anti-Cop, Anti-Men Tweets

Sarah Jeong, the newest editorial board member of The New York Times, is also responsible for extensive anti-cop and anti-men tweets.

The New York Times stood by Jeong on Thursday after the internet surfaced her old racist tweets, however her full Twitter history reveals her ire was not only directed toward white people. (RELATED: NYTimes’ Newest Hire Sent Tons Of Anti-White Racist Tweets)

The NYT claimed that Jeong was “imitating” the behavior of people who harassed her online, but this does not explain why she was tweeting “fuck the police” and encouraging people to “kill all men.”

A search for “cops” and “police” on Jeong’s Twitter reveals an extensive history of anti-cop sentiment and a lack of sympathy for police who are injured on the job.

In one tweet from 2014 she wrote, “let me know when a cop gets killed by a rock or molotov cocktail or a stray shard of glass from a precious precious window.”

“Cops are assholes,” she said in 2015.

“If we’re talking big sweeping bans on shit that kills people, why don’t we ever ever ever ever talk about banning the police?” a tweet from 2016 asserts. [snip]

PC’s plan to scrap Ontario basic income pilot project called ‘shameful’ by NDP leader

The Ontario basic income pilot project is coming to an end, says Children, Community and Social Services Minister Lisa MacLeod.

MacLeod said Tuesday that the project was expensive, and “clearly not the answer for Ontario families.”

She said the ministry would have “more details at a later date” about how the government would end the project.

Close to 4,000 people were enrolled in the basic income pilot program in Thunder Bay, Lindsay, Hamilton, Brantford and Brant County. [snip]

The announcement prompted shock and anger among many who rely on the the project and felt they’d been lied to.

Dave Cherkewski is one of about 1,000 Hamiltonians who received guaranteed income.

“I’m in shock,” he said, reacting to news of the cancellation. “I had a three-year plan and now it’s gone.” [snip]

MacLeod also announced Tuesday that the province’s PC government will increase rates for people on Ontario Works and the Ontario Disability Support Program by 1.5 per cent — not the three per cent increase that was promised in the previous Liberal government’s latest budget.

“We need to do more than just help people remain mired in poverty,” MacLeod said while making the announcement at Queen’s Park.

“We’re going to hit the pause button on the previous government’s patchwork system and replace it with a system that helps stabilize people in need and support them to succeed.”

MacLeod said the province has set a 100-day deadline to develop and announce a “sustainable” social assistance program.

Peccable reflections

Quite an upheaval is happening on the financial front. Facebook and Twitter are taking it in the shorts while the economy does well. The big news for today is the GDP numbers.

If the GDP meets the 4.2% growth rate, the market will surge.

Wall Street investors can’t remember the last time a GDP report was so crucial

Wall Street just traversed a gauntlet: the busiest week of corporate quarterly results, fresh developments in global trade relations and a historic stock tumble by Facebook Inc. However, the headliner of this jam-packed week may be GDP, the official scorecard of the U.S. economy.

As one fixed-income strategist put it, never has a reading of gross domestic product held so much significance, with the three main equity benchmarks—the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.44% the S&P 500 index SPX, -0.30% and the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, -1.01% —as well as the U.S. dollar DXY, +0.12% and Treasury TMUBMUSD10Y, +0.13% TMUBMUSD02Y, -0.15%  markets primed for Friday’s highly anticipated print.

Here’s how Guy LeBas, head of fixed-income strategy for Janney Montgomery Scott, put it via Twitter on Thursday: “I can’t remember the last time the markets placed such importance on a #GDP number as they have with tomorrow. Given the perceived optimism, a miss could catch rates violently offside (i.e., rally risk),” he wrote. [snip]

Count on a raucous day no matter how that number comes in when reported.

 

This couldn’t have happened to a more deserving individual.

Facebook’s $100 billion-plus rout is the biggest loss in stock market history

Facebook on Thursday posted the largest one-day loss in market value by any company in U.S. stock market history after releasing a disastrous quarterly report.

The social media giant’s market capitalization plummeted by $119 billion to $510 billion as its stock price plummeted by 19 percent. At Wednesday’s close, Facebook’s market cap had totaled nearly $630 billion, according to FactSet.
No company in the history of the U.S. stock market has ever lost $100 billion in market value in just one day, but two came close. [snip]

Facebook’s enormous loss in value came a day after the company reported weaker-than-expected revenue for the second quarter as well as disappointing global daily active users, a key metric for Facebook. The company also said it expects its revenue growth rate to slow in the second half of this year.

Given Facebook’s scandal problems and lack of user security a bounce back becomes difficult. When those algorithms get changed under pressure, we shall see how many ‘friends’ are still there.

 

Twitter’s habit of shadow banning one political side does have an effect on the numbers.

Twitter shares drop 12 percent after reporting declining monthly active users

Twitter shares plummeted 12 percent premarket Friday after the company reported a decline in monthly active users and weak guidance.

Twitter reported second-quarter earnings before the bell on Friday:

Earnings per share: 17 cents vs. 17 cents, according to a Thomson Reuters consensus estimate

  • Revenue: $711 million vs. $696.2 million, according to a Thomson Reuters consensus estimate
  • Monthly active users (MAUs): 335 million vs. 338.5 million, according to StreetAccount and FactSet estimate
  • Shares were down as much as 18 percent when the report was released.

Twitter removed about 70 million accounts in May and June, however, Twitter chief financial officer Ned Segal said most of those were not included in its reported metrics because they were not active on the platform for 30 days or more. [snip]

Getting bit on the butt by one’s own practices is twice as painful

They don’t have faces

They do have an animus toward others, the young, old and anyone with a differing belief or opinion. All the attempts to thwart their villainous runs afoul of the singular protection they have: Anonymity. The State for all it’s powers remains mired in their laws. those committing such acts as the Toronto shooting.

The veneer of civilization once more is shown to be thin as a film of water on glass. Since the State cannot devise any method of divining who shall tip over, they resort to blaming the objects used in the violent act. Canada has very strict gun control laws. So much for their efficacy. The UK banned all ownership of firearms with very fer exceptions. Stabbings became prevalent. Now they’re banning knives. What is next, private ownership of vehicles, cricket bats??

Canada now is reviewing it’s gun laws; all the ones on the books dd nothing to prevent this shooting, as laws do not prevent any anti-social behavior. the grand fallacy in the thinking is that the state is responsible for one’s safety and security. Every attempt to reinforce this concept has ended in failure.

The idea of individual responsibility is of course anathema to the socialist concept of community. The reasoning behind it is the lack of control over the populace. Free people do what they wish, slaves can;t. Following this system to it’s end delivers the situation where, free people own arms, slaves don’t. Which fits the Progressive dictum of gun control.
No matter what law is passed or force is used, Socialist societies cannot control human nature. Which is why Toronto’s heinous occurrence happened.

There are evil people in this world. many of them run for office.

San Francisco’s mayor won’t crack down on people using city as an outdoor toilet

San Francisco is full of … well, it.

This isn’t a reference to the trash-talking between Golden State Warriors fans and Los Angeles Laker diehards over LeBron James.

It’s not even regarding the ongoing culinary rivalry that San Francisco has with foodies in New York City.

And it certainly has nothing to do with the criticism Bay Area politics receives from conservatives across the country on a daily basis.

Rather, as a statement of fact, in the most literal possible sense — San Francisco is full of excrement.

According to a recent NBC Bay Area investigation, an alarming amount of trash, used drug needles and feces are clogging San Francisco’s streets.

The report centered around a 153-block survey of downtown, which, according to the report, “revealed trash on every block, 100 needles and more than 300 piles of feces along the 20-mile stretch of streets and sidewalks.”

Another den of socialist money grabbing is found on the opposite coast. The new font of tax loot is tap water.

NJ considers taxing tap water

Never short on ideas for things to tax, lawmakers in New Jersey are considering a tax on tap water.

The proposal is being floated by State Sen. Bob Smith D-Middlesex, who is trying to say it’s not actually a tax but a ‘user fee’.

“It is a user fee based on volume,” Smith told Fox 5’s Chasing New Jersey.

It would add 10 cents for every 1,000 gallons of water a home uses. Smith says that will only add $32 a year to the “average” water bill.

He claims the money is needed to fix a crumbling water delivery infrastructure in the state.

The state already charges a public utility franchise tax on water system operators of $0.01 per 1,000 gallons of water delivered to a consumer. That tax, which went into effect in 1984, is supposed to “ensure clean drinking water in New Jersey.” [snip]

One New Jersey columnist suggested the next proposed tax will be on breathing.

The concept is that the water is on public land which the Progressives control; that means it is their water. So pay up.
