California company that hires protesters
is accused of extortion

Los Angeles Times, by James Rufus Koren

Original Article

Paid protesters are real. Crowds on Demand, a Beverly Hills company that’s an outspoken player in the business of hiring protesters, boasts on its website that it provides its clients with “protests, rallies, flash-mobs, paparazzi events and other inventive PR stunts. ... We provide everything including the people, the materials and even the ideas.” But according to a lawsuit filed by a Czech investor, Crowds on Demand also takes on more sordid assignments. Zdenek Bakala claims the company has been used to run an extortion campaign against him. Bakala has accused Prague investment manager Pavol Krupa of hiring Crowds on

We need to start making the personal lives of the owners and leaders of this horror show company ´enjoy´ their own product and then decide that it is no longer fun.

We need their photos, names, home addresses, photos of their cars....so we all can thank them, every chance we get.

Turn about is fair play.

Yakuzas in Japan are usually hired to disrupt stockholders meeting and other business and political conferences. They are also hired or paid to abstain from such events. Dealing with Yakuza has become part of a corporate annual budget. Police ignores such arrangement due to lack of formal complaint from the organizations involved. Generations of bribe and extortion relationship between Yakuzas and business society allowed both to co-exist for harmony and peace. An irony by American standard.

A couple of years ago I was watching a cable tv show featuring a couple who wanted to buy a fixer upper in the LA area. When asked what they did for a living both said they were professional protestors. And how much were they able to spend on a home? 300K.

Michelle Obama raged against the risk of her "integration and/or assimilation into a White cultural and social structure" in her Princeton University thesis. I reviewed this document, remarkable for its rancor as well as for its orthographical dysfunction, during her husband´s first presidential campaign ten years ago. Now that Mrs. Obama has emerged as a prospective candidate for the 2020 presidential election, her radical rant is worth another look.Below is my 2008 Asia Times essay.

Rush Limbaugh is worried about threats to our country including the fact that young Americans are not taught about American exceptionalism. His point is Democrats not only don’t believe in the ideals that made America great, they believe America is the problem. At one point President Obama argued that America is not exceptional. And remember that NY Governor Cuomo had the unbelievable audacity to say America was never that great. They and other Democrats are deliberately ignoring so much, including America’s rich trove of treasures ranging from the seemingly trivial to the globally important, made up of wonderful, talented people,

Democrat Stacey Abrams acknowledged she had lost the Georgia governor´s race to Republican Brian Kemp on Friday, but she said it was not a concession speech in a fiery indictment of her opponent and the state´s election procedures. "I acknowledge that former secretary of state Brian Kemp will be certified as the victor in the 2018 gubernatorial elections, but to watch an elected official who claims to represent the people in the state baldly pin his hopes for election on the suppression of the people´s democratic right to vote has been truly appalling," Abrams said.

CBS White House correspondent Major Garrett says he disagrees with how CNN’s Jim Acosta conducted himself in last week’s explosive tete-a-tete with President Trump. Garrett spoke to Mediaite alum Larry O’Connor for his radio show on Friday, where he lamented the situation over CNN’s lawsuit against the Trump Administration for their revocation of Acosta’s press credentials. Garrett said he isn’t sure the White House will succeed in court with their legal argument their making against Acosta, though the lawsuit is “uncharted territory” in many ways and presents the judiciary with many new questions about press freedom. The court has since

Friday on ABC’s “The View,” the panel discussed a federal judge’s ruling in favor of CNN by ordering that reporter Jim Acosta‘s White House access be restored. Co-host Abby Huntsman said, “The First Amendment is alive and well now. That’s the decision that they should have made — and it’s still pending, they have to make a final decision, But I think that gives you a pretty clear sense of the direction they’re going in. If you’re the White House, you may not like the guy, can’t stand him, but how are you surprised? Because what precedent would that set if

Ron Vitiello, the acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, bristled at his confirmation hearing on Thursday when Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) asked him about the perception "that ICE is administering its power in a way that is causing fear and intimidation, particularly among immigrants and specifically among immigrants coming from Mexico and Central America."Harris referred to a tweet issued by Vitiello three years ago, when he suggested -- in response to a question posed by Mark Levin -- that the Democrat Party should be called the "liberalcratic party or the NeoKlanist party."

During Thursday’s edition of The View, the panel weighed in on CNN´s lawsuit against the Trump administration for revoking White House Correspondent Jim Acosta’s “hard pass.” The panel rushed to Acosta’s defense, in addition to spouting the usual talking points about how Sarah Sanders is a liar. The liberal co-hosts on The View ultimately concluded that President Trump “does not like to be asked tough questions he doesn’t want to answer.” After explaining to President Trump that “that’s their job” to ask tough questions, co-host Whoopi Goldberg advised President Trump: “if you can’t handle it, get out of the kitchen,

FRANKFORT, Ky.— Mary Beverly Goetz is 76, uses a walker and recently had surgery to remove a cancerous tumor. Worried her health issues would prevent her from voting for Democrat Jim Glenn in her western Kentucky state House district, she requested an absentee ballot by mail and sent it in weeks ahead of the election to make sure her vote was counted. Glenn won by one vote. “It made me feel good,” Goetz said. “It made you feel like your vote really counted.” As the nation watches election officials in Florida and Georgia painstakingly review results in high-profile Senate and

A federal judge handed CNN a major victory on Friday, ruling that President Donald Trump White House must temporarily restore the press credentials it stripped from the network´s chief White House correspondent last week while a lawsuit plays out. Judge Timothy Kelly ruled that Jim Acosta´s First Amendment press rights trump the administration´s right to have orderly press conferences.
