AOC be like "Illegal means illegal?"

Pardon the lingo, but this needs to attract attention because she really does have the equivalent knowledge level to that of a wooden post:

Anti-Trump British ambassador resigns, finally

Ya.  This guy made his own situation impossible.

Phony Republican Justin Amash torched on CNN

Phony Republican Justin Amash is a goof, a useful idiot for the left, and he's at it again.  Becoming an independent will increase the odds of a GOP loss in his district.  He could have stepped aside and allowed a real Republican to run in the district.  He won't pull Democrats but could very well cannibalize some Republican voters and it would be enough to torpedo the Republican's chance of winning the congressional seat.

Sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and Bill Clinton were shockingly close

They are going to try to lambaste president Trump with this scumbag, but the Clinton's are the ones who need to be under the microscope.

This is complicated. Here's a good explainer:



Bill Clinton was more than just a casual acquaintance of the sex trafficker. This from back in 2016:



As it turns out there was even more trips by Clinton on Epstein's private jet with underage girls on board.  More will be coming out on it for sure.

Meanwhile president Trump chose his words carefully yesterday, not defending Alexander Acosta per se but saying he has known him as a good worker and that he would be looking into the situation.  President Trump knew Jefferey Epstein as well, but was "not a fan".

Women's World Cup soccer team demands equal pay. What is equal?

The Left is leveraging the American women's World Cup soccer team's recent championship to argue that their pay should be on par with the American men's team. But what does that mean exactly?  What is equal pay?

First here's some background:


Here's the problem, equal can mean a lot of things.  According to BigThink,
The men's World Cup currently generates more money, by far. For context, FIFA earned upwards of $6 billion from the 2018 men's World Cup. Meanwhile, the women's 2019 World Cup is estimated to earn FIFA about $131 million.

So, even though the U.S. women's team is more successful than the men's team, the numbers suggest that men's soccer is currently a more valuable product — especially on the international stage.
Allow me to extrapolate - when viewed as a percentage of revenue, the women are actually making more than the men.  While you let that marinate, consider the implications of having flat pay regardless of gender; what about regardless of sport? Should field hockey players get the same pay too?  What about regardless of industry? Should McDonald's workers not also be entitled to the same pay as Ruth's Chris Steakhouse staff?  Or as the men's national soccer team?  What about regardless of country?  Should the women's, or men's Bangladeshi soccer team get as much as the Americans?  All of those notions are crazy and here's why:

Some things are more valuable than others. Gold is more valuable than silver.  This also applies to jobs.  Brain surgery is more valuable than floor mopping.  Both have value, but not equal value.  I would not want my mother's brain surgeon making the same as the guy who mops the hospital floor.

This is not to imply that the men's team is more valuable in contributing to national pride than the women's team.  The women's team does better in that regards as they are more successful.  But the product itself, women's soccer, is not as coveted as men's soccer. Therefore there is less revenue available.  Therefore the absolute value of the pay is lower because the pie for men's soccer is so much bigger.  It has more viewers, it has more history, it has more prestige.  That does not make that right, it is just a statement of fact.

Which brings me to my final point.  The women's team is more successful than the men's team because they face far less relative talent.  Many countries don't even have women's soccer teams.  Many of them are newer than the American team, and less established.  Frankly there are only a handful of countries with competitive teams.  In the case of the men, soccer is a global phenomenon, with billions of viewers and millions of participants. It is considerably more difficult for the men's team to do well than it is for the women.  Again, this is just a statement of fact.

So everyone screaming about equality think about what you mean.  There is equality of opportunity, there is equality of talent and equality of outcome.  The only reason anyone should want to see equality of outcome is if, and only if, there is an equality of talent (for soccer this is a relative situation re: men vs. women) and equality of opportunity (for soccer this would mean demand for the product and the ability to be able to compete at it).

Anyone wanting to see equality of outcome without those other conditions is frankly, a Marxist.

Meanwhile, president Trump is making inroads with voting blocks

In contrast to the Left's growing Crazy Train, Mark Dice takes a look at African Americans who are starting to lean towards Trump.


Should African Americans support president Trump in numbers that reflect what he has done for them, his landslide win in 2020 will be of epic proportions.

Impeach-Trump billionaire Tom Steyer enters presidential race

Tom Steyer is enviro-crazy and depending on how he runs his campaign, I can foresee the potential for scorched earth primaries on the Democrat side.  I imagine he might jump in as a favorite (not necessarily in polling, but in odds because of what he will spend to win).

He will be excoriated by other Democrat hopefuls because as the race progresses his position and odds of winning will improve.  They have to go after him right away, and I suspect for the most part, they will.  What's interesting is whether he wins or loses there will be fallout.  If he wins, will his opponents support him after what is likely to be a slugfest of a personal campaign.  If he loses, will he continue to throw his money behind beating president Trump.  He may not because if he is torched by Kamala Harris and she wins, would he want to support her?  He seems like a narcissistic personality and that would mean, no.


It's gonna be fun to watch the whole process.

Democrats 2020 - hopeless. They are moving away from electability at an astounding rate.

Saturday Learning Series - Steven Crowder's Masterclass (episode 1)

Steven Crowder has started an American Masterclass and it's great.  Here's episode 1, which focuses on the first amendment to the Constitution.  Let's hope it does not get demonitized or shadow banned by YouTube (a.k.a. Google) for some unspecified and invalid reason.

Antifa thugs beware, you are about to be sued into oblivion.



Googles lame response to Project Veritas video on Google

Geeks + Gamers updates the Google bias situation, as a result of their biased removal of the Project Veritas expose on Google's bias.  It's circular I know, but it needs to be a forefront issue every day because Google is getting worse, not better.

Mini AOC doxed by leftists

There is no low to which the hate-filled progressive left will sink, this time outing a little girl.  She got death threats. The Left have no standards, they have no morals, no qualms about violence, no low to which they will not sink in their grotesque hate-filled anger at normal people.

Justice Roberts, what happened to you?

Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Roberts sides with the radical left, far too often.

First, he abdicated his responsibility on the Constitutionality of Obamacare:



That was followed by a number of other odd decisions:



And now, he's at it again on the census:



I ask in all sincerity, Justice Roberts, what happened to you?

Happy Independence Day

July 4th is a demarcation point in human history, a point where life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness were defined as inalienable rights, free of government dictates to the contrary.  It is a unique declaration and it deserves to be celebrated as one of the most important points in human history.

Keep that in mind as you celebrate the birth of your nation.
