Apple Isn´t So Interested
In Diversity After All

Investor´s Business Daily, by Justin Danhof

Original Article

Posted By:RockyTCB, 2/12/2019 10:03:56 AM

In a recent federal filing before the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, lawyers for Apple (AAPL) maintained that the tech giant should not have to consider increasing its leadership´s ideological diversity and that arguments made in support of greater viewpoint variance were "without merit." The SEC disagreed, sending Apple´s legal team a stunning rebuke. Because of that decision, at next month´s annual meeting of Apple investors, its shareholders will have the chance to vote on whether the Silicon Valley-based company should seek to increase ideological diversity or continue operating in a progressive prepotency.

A leftist who believes in diversity has yet to be born.

´ideological diversity´
Is that respecting Christians or caving to BLM?

Why, exactly, is the SEC getting involved in a company´s ´ideological diversity´??? And where does the constitution expressly grant the fedgov that power?

Apple´s is as ideologically diverse as a bag of M&M´s; many different colors on the outside but all identical on the inside.

Who knew the SEC was authorized to promote their views of thinking in the executive suites of corporate America? No wonder the SEC had not read the 10K filings of Enron, and had no idea what was going on, which I think was more within the purview of their jobs. By the way, diversity is not an objective I seek. I embrace success, and reject failure, for example. There are many cultures that may be different, but historically, they have been failures, which is why they are coming to the USA, and the people are not moving there.

Im guessing that the SEC does have some oversight by virtue that Apple is a publicly traded company. In order to be a publicly traded company, some standards need to apply in order to protect the company, its investors and full faith in US law enforcement. Ok.....so maybe the last is laughable these days.

But the author makes good points. The left assumes that every racial, gender and religious group thinks alike. If you were seeking religious diversity you wouldnt engage one Suni Muslim and assume that one person represents all of Islam. You wouldn´t engage one Catholic and assume that one person speaks for Baptists, Lutherans, Presbyterians, Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses etc etc.

True diversity is found in different ideas, experience, talents philosophies etc. Input is great, even if its to highlight bad ideas, and why

In a free society, any non-governmental entity should be entitled to freely concentrate on quality of product and work ethic of employees, irrespective of personal diversity of ideology.

The fact that the SEC is even investigating this issue at Apple is evidence that the swamp leftists continue to infest the SEC. It´s a shame that the Chief Executive can´t fire or retire them all.

Some of you should try reading the article before you pop off and comment - a shareholder group proposed an amendment to Apple´s Corporate bylaws to be considered at the annual meeting stating that Apple should consider ideological diversity when proposing members to the Board of Directors. It met all the requirements for a shareholder proposal, but Apple petitioned the SEC to allow them to keep it from consideration by the shareholders. The SEC refused permission.

Apple must be afraid it will pass. Otherwise, they should let it go before the shareholders and go down in flames (as most crackpot shareholder proposals do).

Election 2020: When Bernie Sanders announced on Tuesday that he was running for president, the only surprising thing was how much competition he´ll have on the far left. The current crop of 2020 candidates is so liberal, in fact, that it makes the Barack Obama of 2008 look positively right wing. When Obama first ran, he tried to position himself as something of a fiscal moderate. Obama complained about "the orgy of spending" under President George W. Bush. He pledged that all his spending plans were more than offset with spending cuts.

Business Un-Friendly: Amazon´s decision to pull the plug on the New York half of its "HQ2" shows just how inhospitable the state has become to businesses. Even a $3 billion sweetheart deal couldn´t overcome its toxic economic environment. There´s a lesson here. Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been running around claiming credit for Amazon´s decision, calling it a big win for the "people" over "corporate greed." But the "credit," such as it is, doesn´t belong to her social media campaign or the protesters with makeshift signs marching around.

President Trump: Why Not Propose
A Truly ´Green´ New Deal?
Investor´s Business Daily, by Bob Maistros    Original Article

Hidden in President Donald Trump´s State of the Union address last week — and practically uncommented upon — was the seed of a revolutionary political platform. "An amazing quality of life for all of our citizens," the Chief Executive mooted, "is within reach." President Trump defined that "amazing quality of life" in part as making "our middle class more prosperous than ever before." But why stop there? Why not refocus government on making all Americans wealthier — by reversing our culture of wealth redistribution and destruction?

Attention Working Americans: Democrats
Want To Hike Your Taxes By $1.5 Trillion

Amid all the hoopla about Democrats wanting to raise taxes on the rich, they are quietly working on a bill that would increase taxes on every working family in America. Why? To fund expanded benefits for baby boomers hitting retirement. The Social Security 2100 Act would hike the combined payroll taxes paid by workers and their employers from 12.4% today to 14.8% by 2043. The bill would also apply the payroll tax on incomes over $400,000. According to the Social Security Administration, in the first 12 years alone, this would amount to a $1.5 trillion tax hike.

Infrastructure: California Gov. Gavin Newsom just pulled the plug on the state´s bullet train boondoggle. President Trump should demand the $3.5 billion the federal government dumped into this black hole back, so he can put it to better use building the border wall. In his State of the State speech, Newsom said he was shelving plans for a high-speed rail line from San Francisco to Los Angeles. A plan plagued with endless delays and massive cost overruns.

Revival Going On Under Trump

Middle-Class Economics: USA Today ran a surprising story on Tuesday headlined "Can the middle-class revival under Trump last?" It´s surprising — shocking really — because it might just be the first time a major news outlet has admitted that there has been a middle-class revival under Trump. We did a search for news stories that used the phrase "middle-class revival" since Trump took office. Other than the USAT story and a syndicated column written a year-and-a-half ago, we found none.

Good Times: When Trump rattled off a series of economic successes in his State of the Union, he could have added one more. The public´s quality of life has improved sharply in the past two years. "We have created 5.3 million new jobs and, importantly, added 600,000 new manufacturing jobs," Trump said at one point in this address. "Wages are rising at the fastest pace in decades ... . Unemployment has reached the lowest rate in half a century. African-American, Hispanic-American and Asian-American unemployment have all reached their lowest levels ever recorded.

Election 2020: Starbucks tycoon Howard Schultz had barely gotten the words out of his mouth about a possible independent bid for president before an angry Democratic mob descended on him. He should ignore them. It´s a "pathetic vanity project," one said. Others threatened to boycott Starbucks. Neera Tanden, head of the left-wing Center for American Progress, called the prospect of Schultz´s running "disgusting" and said it will "help destroy democracy." Former Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon said if Schultz runs it would put him at the top of the "all-time list of villains."

Big Lie: Presidential wannabe Elizabeth Warren´s obfuscation about her Native American heritage may have finally done her in. The latest shoe to drop is her 1986 registration card for the Texas bar, in which she claimed her race is "American Indian." This week, seven years after the public first learned that she´d been claiming to be a Native American, the Massachusetts senator sort of apologized for doing so. But only after the Washington Post unearthed her Texas bar registration card, filled out by hand nearly 33 years ago.

Foreign Affairs: At the tail end of his State of the Union address Tuesday night, as President Donald Trump touted his foreign policy achievements, Democrats sat stone faced. Not a surprise. But outside the House chamber, even some of Trump´s harshest critics have grudgingly acknowledged that he´s had several big wins. Shortly before the November 2016 elections, a group of 50 top Republican foreign policy experts signed an unprecedented letter forcefully denouncing the Republican candidate for president. "From a foreign policy perspective, Donald Trump is not qualified to be president and commander-in-chief,"

The U.S. Transportation Department announced Tuesday it would attempt to cancel $929 million in federal grant funds for California’s troubled high-speed rail project. The move marks an escalation in the war between President Trump and California in the days since Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a rethinking of the bullet train project after years of cost overruns. The Transportation Department also announced it was “actively exploring every legal option to seek the return from California of $2.5 billion in federal funds.” It’s unclear whether it has the legal authority to do so, and California would probably oppose such a move.In a

Now for the charming topics of Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, Ed Markey, and the so-called “Green New Deal.” If ever there was a multi-pronged way to snatch Depression from the Jaws of prosperity, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez seems to have hit upon it. Ms. AOC has discovered that the planet is warming to an alarming degree. Never mind that she is in no sense a scientist. Never mind that many climatologists say that climate change is a hoax — and many say it’s not a hoax at all. Never mind that there are many different possible causes of climate change and that human activity

Failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton warned of “real national emergencies” that included “Americans dying for lack of health care,” despite Obamacare remaining in place. Clinton posted a message Monday appearing to take aim at President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the U.S. southern border. She offered four alternative “real national emergencies.” The real national emergencies: – Relentless gun violence. – Children separated from their families at the border. – Climate change. – Americans dying for lack of health care. Clinton identified “real national emergencies” as: – Relentless gun violence

A lot of Americans are justifiably angry that disgraced FBI official Andrew McCabe is doing a book tour rather than a stretch in some federal penitentiary. He has committed perjury on multiple occasions, participated in an attempt to alter the outcome of a national election, and colluded with other rogue bureaucrats to remove a duly elected president from power. But there is a bright and shiny silver lining to this dingy cloud of deep state skullduggery: Donald Trump still resides in the White House while Hillary Clinton stumbles around her Chappaqua mansion in a muumuu hugging a fifth of Glenfiddich.

CBS journalist Lara Logan on Friday unleashed a blistering, uncensored attack on the extreme liberal bias polluting America´s news outlets. Logan derided the “horses**t” “propagandist” press that had no interest in fairness. Appearing on Mike Drop, the podcast of former Navy SEAL Mike Ritland, the foreign affairs correspondent and occasional 60 Minutes reporter berated slanted coverage in a way rarely seen by those in the mainstream press: “We’ve become political activists in a sense.

The “we reported the Jussie Smollett case responsibly” contention has been blasted to smithereens. Twitter accounts and headlines in the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the Los Angeles Times reported as fact Jussie Smollett’s wildly implausible allegations, and many other journalists did so as well, not to mention the innumerable activists and celebrities who piled on. So, a question for all of the above. Why did you believe Jussie Smollett? Let’s try to catalogue the red flags. Had you ever heard of Jussie Smollett before the alleged January 29 attack?

Instead, the apparent hoax is turning out to be a warning to 2020 Democratic candidates about singling out people for martyrdom, including the woman who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett M.
