The so-called “mainstream” media doesn’t even try to hide its bias anymore.
Legacy institutions flat-out promote a leftist worldview.
And The New York Times fawned over this champagne socialist for a reason that will infuriate you.
The establishment elites are looking for any justification to seize more power.
And The New York Times came up with a ridiculous propaganda piece advocating for more centralized control in the government’s hands.
The Times ran a piece about Marlene Engelhorn, an Austrian millionaire heiress who’s advocating for a gigantic inheritance tax.
“‘The dream scenario is I get taxed,’ said Ms. Engelhorn, the co-founder of a group called Tax Me Now,” The Times wrote. “Ms. Engelhorn, a 30-year-old who grew up in Vienna, is part of a growing movement of young, leftist millionaires who say they want governments to take a much larger share of their inherited wealth, arguing that these unearned fortunes should be democratically allocated by the state. For more than a year, Ms. Engelhorn has been campaigning for tax policies that would redistribute her eight-figure windfall — and anyone else’s.”
It’s not enough for these millionaire socialists to just give away their money, they want the government to take away everyone else’s money.
If Engelhorn is so desperate to be taxed, she can sell all of her assets, write a check to the government, and get a job like everyone else – there’s nothing stopping her.
However, Engelhorn does not believe in people having the freedom to decide where their money goes.
“In Ms. Engelhorn’s view, it shouldn’t be the wealthy who get to decide which personal interests and passions deserve their inherited millions,” The Times continued. “‘There’s no need for another foundation,’ she said as she sat by a canal in Amsterdam and ate a loaf of bread she had brought in her backpack. ‘What’s really needed is structural change.’”
In her view, government bureaucrats should get to determine where the money goes, which is such a comically naïve mindset.
For some reason, socialists don’t understand that government is composed of humans who will respond to incentives, just like people in business.
However, people in government rarely have to suffer the consequences of bad decisions – after all, it’s not their money if they lose it, and they always provide themselves ample salaries, retirements, and severances.
Engelhorn and The Times are effectively pushing for an inheritance tax, which is merely another recycled leftist redistribution of wealth scheme.
Elizabeth Warren proposed a wealth tax and an inheritance tax during her run for President in 2020, and the idea was dead on arrival.
Many countries — including Austria — already attempted an inheritance tax, and it was a disaster.
The Left are always searching for moral justifications to allow government to have total control over your life.
What The View said about Justice Amy Coney Barrett will make you blow your top
The View is quickly becoming one of the most hate-filled shows on network television.
The hosts take turns demonizing Republicans in the most despicable ways possible.
Now what The View just said about Justice Amy Coney Barrett will make you blow your top.
Democrats and their Fake News allies unleashed hell on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing because he was set to be the swing vote on the Court.
They accused him of being a “gang rapist” without a shred of evidence.
But as Democrats’ anti-Kavanaugh propaganda began to fall apart under the smallest bit of scrutiny, that ugly smear campaign backfired in the court of public opinion, leading Democrats to somewhat temper their attacks during Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation process.
Nevertheless, the Left still branded her as a “Catholic zealot” who wanted to turn America into a religious theocracy like that portrayed in the dystopian TV series, The Handmaid’s Tale.
And the Left is still attacking Justice Barrett solely because of her Catholic faith, including the harpies of The View, who suggested that she should recuse herself on certain cases because of her religion.
Joy Behar kicked off the mind-numbing segment by claiming that because Justice Barrett is religious, she somehow should recuse herself from all cases involving religious liberty.
“Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s religious faith is being called into question again,” Behar said. “There were calls for her to recuse herself from a case which is about a web designer who wants to post a statement that she won’t design wedding websites for same-sex couples because it’s against her religious beliefs.”
“Now, here’s my question – she is, you know, a religious person,” she continued. “She belongs to this People of Praise group which the Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled them a hate group, and their founder has questioned the so-called separation of church and state. They believe that sex should occur only within marriage and, of course, between a man and a woman. They’ve got very specific things that they believe.”
First off, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is no longer a legitimate institution.
The SPLC admirably fought the KKK decades ago, but now the organization is nothing more than a left-wing slush fund for executives who then smear anyone who opposes Democrats’ agenda.
Furthermore, the SPLC has a long history of slapping “hate group” and “hate speech” labels on groups and individuals that leave many scratching their heads, like when they labeled British broadcaster Maajid Nawaz – a practicing Muslim – an “anti-Islamic” hate preacher for speaking out against radical Islam.
Nawaz sued the SPLC and won.
Also, the SPLC has been rocked by scandal over the years, like when co-founder Morris Dees was accused of racism and sexual impropriety.
Behar’s comments not only show how Democrats, like herself, don’t actually do their own homework and merely regurgitate what they’re told, but also how quickly the Left has moved from being the Party of “tolerance” to an outright authoritarian mentality of “comply or else.”
It’s not enough that religious Americans tolerate same-sex marriage and extend the same rights to same-sex couples – they must participate in it (ie. forcing pastors to marry same-sex couples inside their churches) and violate their faith.
“So they don’t recuse themselves when they have to deal with religious issues,” Sunny Hostin added. “But I will say this: She’s never — I’m not defending her just because she went to my law school. She’s never publicly acknowledged her membership in the community since becoming a judge. Did not disclose it though during her confirmation. And what made me most uncomfortable is at the time it was reported that the People of Praise erased every single mention and every single photo of her from their website. So if she wasn’t affiliated, then why remove all of that information? And I think the problem here is the Supreme Court has no procedure by which to force a judge’s removal. You get to decide on your own.”
It’s ludicrous that the Left believe Barrett and other conservative Catholics on the court must recuse themselves.
Based on that left-wing logic, leftist Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, who is a black American, should be forced to recuse herself from cases involving affirmative action or other issues that directly affect her race.
Justice Jackson also happens to be a protestant Christian, but the Left isn’t calling for her to recuse herself, as they trust she’ll be a reliable left-wing vote.
The real problem for The View is that Justice Amy Coney Barrett has conservative values, and they’re attacking her faith.
This former CIA agent said one word that exposed the Deep State’s anti-free speech efforts
The Left are doubling and tripling down on censorship.
It’s their only play since they have lost their monopoly on the media narrative.
And this former CIA agent said one word that exposed the Deep State’s anti-free speech efforts.
Leftists have proven over the past few years that they do not at all care about free speech.
They use slogans like “hate speech is not free speech” to create a strawman by which any supporter of free speech must also condone hate speech.
There have been countless articles in the corporate-controlled press pushing the idea that free speech has become “problematic.”
Now, one CNN guest said that free speech is “nonsense.”
In response to Elon Musk restoring free speech on Twitter, former CIA intelligence officer Robert Baer, who wrote the book See No Evil, claimed that “freedom of speech is just nonsense.”
“You know, this freedom of speech is just nonsense because you can’t go in a movie theater and yell ‘fire,’” Baer claimed. “It’s against the law. I’d say this Libertarian nonsense is destructive to American national security. And he has got to reinstitute the same restrictions that were on Twitter before he bought it. There’s no other choice.”
First, it is not illegal to yell “fire” in a crowded theater – that’s merely a hackneyed talking point that has somehow survived for ages.
Second, censoring Americans is not in the best interest of “national security.”
Those two words have been used to justify all sorts of abuses of liberty since the dawn of time, but Americans have caught onto the act now that the establishment has turned the War on Terror inward.
Baer was also very concerned about Russian President Vladimir Putin using Twitter to spread war propaganda, as if both Russians and Ukrainians – and especially Americans – are not doing that right now.
“Putin will be all over Twitter if there’s no regulations on this,” Baer claimed, even though Putin could have very well been all over Twitter for years if he wanted. “Fake accounts, spoofed accounts, the rest of it, this is a great opportunity for him. And so when he’s talking about the popular voice, Musk, he’s really talking about Russian intelligence.
“The Russians are waiting for something like this,” he continued. “They need a propaganda campaign against the United States and against our support for Ukraine. And they’re going to be all over Twitter. I guarantee this. Supporting the far right, plans, demands to stop arming Ukraine. You just wait.”
Bob Baer, cont’d: “It’s not right. And you know, this freedom of speech is just nonsense because you can’t go into a movie theater and yell ‘fire.’ It’s against the law. What Putin is going to do & the Russians is they’re going to use this as a vehicle to save himself in Ukraine” pic.twitter.com/3FnuOZDiSd

Baer is an example of why federal government institutions, like the CIA and FBI, have lost so much credibility.
He wants to censor Twitter in order to serve the Military Industrial Complex and Deep State.
The average American does not care about funding Ukraine until the end of time, but the warmongers most certainly do.
CNN’s flimsy “evidence” for this blatantly fabricated story will leave you rolling your eyes
A CNN writer seemed to be suffering from some sort of leftist, holiday hangover when he penned an article for the network’s website travel section.
Instead of lighthearted content about something relevant like taking a trip, he blatantly fabricated a story ripping into the U.S.
And his flimsy “evidence” will leave you rolling your eyes.
Whenever leftists take a break from playing the racist “equity” card, all they really have to fall back on is griping about guns.
Forrest Brown penned a clown-piece for CNN’s “unlocking the world” travel section entitled, “What travel warnings do other nation’s give their citizens about US violence?”
The idea was clearly hatched in a deranged left-wing haze, and unfortunately executed without any real logical thought getting in the way.
In the first few paragraphs, Brown continued to hint at the idea that the other nations are warning their citizens against traveling to the U.S., before eventually getting to the substance of the article — or lack thereof.
In spite of a crime wave nurtured by Marxist Black Lives Matter rioters, pro-crime defense attorneys, and the Democrats who gave rise to both, the United States remains one of the safest places in the world to travel, especially if visitors have the good sense to avoid areas where Democrats are in charge.
Of course, Brown doesn’t care about facts, and he certainly has no interest in placing the blame for anything that is going wrong on the Democrats who run the show.
Instead, Brown twisted himself into all sorts of knots worrying about whether “gun violence” is tarnishing America’s reputation abroad.
“Would-be visitors aren’t being warned off entirely as if America is an active war zone,” Brown wrote. “Each nation has its own approach. But a general theme boils down to this: The United States is more violent than what you’re used to. Learn to take precautions there that you might not have to take at home.”
He then proceeded to provide a list of countries with the greatest numbers of U.S. visitors and their advice for travelers.
He had to get all the way down to Germany — which is a socialist hot mess — before he found a satisfying level of snark.
“It is easy to obtain guns in the United States, leading to increased use of guns and occasional killing sprees,” The German Ministry of Foreign Affairs reports. “The number of arms and ammunition purchases has increased significantly during the COVID-19 crisis.”
Of course, that gratuitous political claim wasn’t backed up with anything.
The United Kingdom’s government got a lot closer to reality, noting that no matter how much left-wing radicals scream like their hair is on fire, it’s unlikely anything is going to happen to the average visitor to America.
Unless, of course, they’re inclined to hang out in any Democrat-controlled city or the southern border.
