Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. We Are the Resistance!

 

Have you noticed lately the number of journalists who are regularly using the term “the Resistance” when they refer to the members of the Left? Do you realize how they have subtly been indoctrinated to use the term resistance and they are unintentionally legitimizing the work of the Left? The word resistance has been co-opted by the Left, and it’s time that we not only hold them to account, but we should consider embracing the term for the political Right.

Resistance movements describe groups that formed to resist armies that were invading and destroying legitimate countries:

This release by Judicial Watch demonstrates the revolving door between organizations fronted by George Soros and operating inside Romania and Columbia. Here are some pertinent details that seem to indicate how the Soros’ NGO’s and Obama government were one big revolving door of slush funds: More

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Do Black Lives Matter?

 

Black lives ought to matter; and, in my opinion, they once did. They once mattered a great deal. Not long after he became mayor in New York City, Rudy Giuliani introduced a new method of policing that concentrated resources where there was a plethora of crime. It resulted in a dramatic decline in the murder rate, and Newt Gingrich and Bill Clinton took notice and poured federal money into similar policing reforms. African-Americans living in rough neighborhoods were the intended beneficiaries, and they benefited a great deal.

But those days are long gone, and I do not believe that black lives much matter now. They did not matter to Barack Obama, Eric Holder, the members of the Congressional Black Caucus, the white radical who passed as black and founded Black Lives Matter, and to George Soros who funded the outfit. These folks were perfectly prepared to do a number on America’s African-American community and to put their lives at greater risk for the purpose of mobilizing them as a political force.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Killer Apps

 

I’ve had it up to here with you people out there making harassing calls to my technical staff to rush our new smartphone apps to the market. My number one technology guy, R.N.D. Funding, is threatening to quit. If he does, I’m coming after each of you fat [expletives]. Like many Americans, I have access to the NSA tapes and transcripts of your abusive calls to R.N.D. If you think Gen. Flynn got a raw deal, just wait until I get a hold of you.

However, my public relations consultant and part-time rodeo clown, Robin “Hood” Wink, has urged me to placate you knuckleheads. I told her, as I’m always ‘splaining to my Nobel Prize winning shrink, Sarah Bellum, I try to like people, but they are all so [expletive] stupid.

I ran into my old girlfriend, Dee Facto, yesterday as she walked out of the world-famous Anthony “All Beef” Weiner wing of the Capitol Hill Sex Addiction Clinic and Spa in Washington, DC.

Dee looked worn out.

I’ve seen this movie before. Back in the late 60’s and 70’s we saw student demonstrations all over the country, many of which were organized by communist organizations within our country and outside from foreign entities. Ads in student newspapers and flyers passed around on campuses recruited students who were often paid to protest, sometimes […]

Donald Trump and George Soros must travel in some of the same circles. It’s well-known that many of the anarchist and Occupy groups are funded by Soros, and they are the ones who cause the most damage by their demonstrations and destruction when they don’t get what they want. Might Wealthy Businessman Donald Trump be […]

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. Shunning: A Survival Strategy

 

stoveOver the years, I have assembled a short list of political aphorisms and I have been ruthless in my consideration of what merits inclusion. So ruthless that, in twenty-odd years, my list stood at a mere two entries. After years of advocacy, however, I realized that a specific point merits inclusion. My list now stands:

  1. Marxists lie.
  2. Never create a martyr.
  3. Some people need to touch the stove.

In reference to this new, third aphorism, there is a saying: “A smart man learns from his mistakes, but a wise man learns from other people’s mistakes.” The unspoken corollary is that a fool never learns. Which brings me to supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Staging Riots

 

shutterstock_213974764 (1)Journalism is pretty much dead in the United States. Most of the newspapers that used to do the basic work of looking into things have folded, and most of those that remain are, for the most part, in the disinformation business. Do you remember the coverage of the Duke Lacrosse Case? Of the George Zimmerman – Trayvon Martin case? Of the events in Ferguson? Of the Eric Garner case in New York City? And of the recent events in Baltimore?

The media has a narrative that they desperately want to peddle – which is that you and I live in a viciously racist society. That is what our budding journalists were taught in college, and they are always on the lookout for an anecdote to illustrate that meme. Before carefully examining the facts in any given case, they will leap to the predetermined conclusion.

Approximately $13.3 billion of Soros’s net worth is owed to tax avoidance or deferral, say some attorneys at Cravath to Bloomberg. His total federal/state/NYC tax liability on these monies is $6.7 billion, which is payable by 2017.

The article also contains this beauty from a Soros tax attorney:
