Are Conservatives Trustbusters Now?
New Republic, by Alex Shephard

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 1/12/2018 10:32:09 AM

Fox News is the last place you’d expect to see evidence of the growing push for antitrust enforcement. And yet Tucker Carlson this week devoted segments on two of his shows to arguing that Google has surpassed the federal government as the biggest threat to American liberty. In a spirited debate with Senator Mike Lee of Utah (who sits on the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights), Carlson called for a return to trust-busting: “Here’s the bottom line from my perspective: No company has ever been as powerful in the history of the world as Google

Alex Shepard is yet another liberal pseudo-intellectual who is characterizing what Damore said in his paper.

He never said males were superior in any way to females in the workplace. What he did say was females are different than men (God what a revelation), and have different needs, and different strengths and weakness than men.

He urged Google to identify those differences and make coding/engineering more attractive to woman by catering to their (the woman´s) particular nature driven skill sets.

Instead Google insists on forcing square pegs into round holes by insisting that female under representation is always due to bias and sexism and the only way to achieve equality for woman is to discriminate against white men.

While we are in a trustbusting mood, how about we go after the big medical and pharma cartels.

Republicans have never been for artificial combinations that restrain trade and combinations, government or industry. I wonder where the New Republic has been for the last 150 years. I am not for AT&T buying up everybody, as they are trying to do, nor am I for the government granting legal monopolies to baseball, the NFL, or nationalizing the healthcare system under single payer.

When any entity gets large and important enough to decide what the truth is and uses its position on a public venue (like radio or TV or the internet) to censor information contrary to its beliefs over an arena large enough to affect how you can obtain information then it has too much control over what information is open to the public. We can’t allow one small group to gain control over our flow of all information. We need to hear all sides.

Remember when the liberals used to gripe about General Motor´s ´Monopoly´?
Google has TEN TIMES the Monopoly POWER that General Motors EVER had!
Also it seems to me that Google has -maybe from the outset- designed everything they do so as to COLLECT INFORMATION on everyone that they can.

I avoid Google as much as possible, and I applaud any efforts to limit their POWER and INTRUSIVENESS.

CNBC, by Brian Schwartz    Original Article

Major names on Wall Street and in the Republican establishment are buying into Mitt Romney´s run for Senate, particularly as Republican lawmakers are looking to him as a future leader within a congressional caucus that is struggling to find its identity. According to first-quarter filings, Romney has been quietly receiving the financial backing of some of the most powerful names and donors in Republican circles, such as former Goldman Sachs CEO and Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson. The early contributions are not necessarily big, but they indicate a coordinated effort to push the former Massachusetts governor and presidential

There is a kind of modernity to the 19th-century story of New York archbishop John Hughes, in terms of three issues we still have cause to ponder in the United States: namely, the nature of community, the utility of any form of identity politics, and our national embrace of — and, in some quarters now, new skepticism about — multiple cultural identities. Hughes gave thought to the forces that were necessary to forge a tight-knit community, and his answers, if dangerous in our own day, seemed more reasonable to him. He did not share Bishop Benedict Joseph Fenwick’s gentleness when

Tim Draper is a rich man, but he understands he doesn´t know it all. His first attempt to divide California into six states made very little sense. So he went out and got some people who are experts on the subject. The result, Cal 3, is a political masterpiece. This could work. When California was admitted to the union in 1850 it had only 92,000 people, most of them scrambling for gold in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. That´s why California´s county lines are so screwy. Los Angeles County now has 10,000,000 people. Alpine County has 1,000. Cal 3 divides the

In today´s public dialogue, there´s a lot of talk back and forth over the transgender issue. And why not? Transgenderism has been made into a cause celebre by the cultural elite. Many, myself included, view this as part of the ongoing effort by the Left to separate America from God and tradition. For that reason, it is worthwhile to delve a little deeper into the issue than what is normally provided by what is claimed by transgender people themselves.

New Twists Emerge in Leadership
Race to Replace Paul Ryan
Roll Call, by Lindsey McPherson    Original Article
Posted By: Tishimself- 4/15/2018 12:02:28     Post Reply
Two twists emerged Friday in the leadership race to replace retiring Speaker Paul D. Ryan. House Freedom Caucus founding member Jim Jordan said he’d consider a run while Ryan endorsed Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. “There is no speaker’s race right now,” Jordan told reporters. “Paul Ryan is the speaker. If and when there is, I’ve been urged by colleagues to consider that and I am definitely open to that. Right now though the focus has got to be on the next six months, us keeping the majority.” Jordan is a tactical politician. His move is not about actually believing he could win

Mr. Dooley Had It Backwards

What would Mr. Dooley make of the latest alarum from the New York Times about how America’s state courts are under “partisan attack”? Mr. Dooley is the fictional bartender who famously proclaimed that “the Supreme Court follows the election returns.” The Times has been set off by what is happening in Wisconsin, Kansas, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. Those are among the states where voters are so upset with judicial decisions that they’re taking to politics to curb the courts. Across the country, the Times warns in an editorial, “state judges are under increasing fire from lawmakers and outside groups angered by their rulings, their power, their tenure or simply their independence.”

GOP devotes $250M to
midterm strategy: Keep House majority
Trucker, by AP Staff    Original Article

The Republican National Committee has committed $250 million to a midterm election strategy that has one goal above all else: Preserve the party´s House majority for the rest of President Donald Trump´s first term.Facing the prospect of a blue wave this fall, the White House´s political arm is devoting unprecedented resources to building an army of paid staff and trained volunteers across more than two dozen states. The RNC is taking the fight to Senate Democrats in Republican-leaning states, but much of the national GOP´s resources are focused on protecting Republican-held House seats in states including Florida, California and New

Paul Ryan was waiting
for the next Ronald Reagan.
He got President Trump

Long before he became speaker of the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan had a simple dream: to play Jack Kemp to a future Republican president’s Ronald Reagan. In a cruel twist of fate, Ryan instead had to reprise Kemp’s role with President Trump. Kemp, Ryan’s idol, helped craft the tax cut that eventually became the centerpiece of Reagan’s supply-side economic agenda. From his early years representing a Wisconsin swing district in Congress, Ryan was unveiling sweeping budget and reform plans he hoped would someday become law.

Mitt Romney gave 20 paid speeches from early 2017 to early 2018, earning him more than $1.5 million, according to a personal financial disclosure he filed with the U.S. Senate.

Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith, the state’s commissioner of agriculture and commerce, is expected to be named by Gov. Phil Bryant during a news conference today in Brookhaven as the interim replacement for Thad Cochran in the United States Senate. Hyde-Smith, 58 of Brookhaven, would be the first woman to serve the state as a member of the U.S. House or Senate. As the interim senator, Hyde-Smith is expected to run in the November special election that will be held to elect a replacement to complete Cochran’s current term that ends in January 2021.

The Republicans’ central Senate super PAC is making a major push to ask its donors to give directly to GOP Senate candidates, including by enlisting top GOP strategist Karl Rove to solicit donations. There is heightened urgency for candidates to step up their fundraising game after Tuesday’s 18th Congressional District race in Pennsylvania, said officials from the Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC that is a part of the American Crossroads network of big-money GOP groups founded with help from Rove. GOP outside groups poured heavily into the race — a reliable Republican district that President Trump carried by 20 points in

Eleven Republicans stepped forward before a Thursday evening filing deadline to challenge former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in the Utah Senate race, including a state lawmaker who says an "establishment insider" can´t fix problems in Washington. Many of the candidates acknowledge the David-vs-Goliath nature of challenging the famous and popular Romney, but they say someone needs to keep the race to replace Republican Orrin Hatch from becoming a "coronation.” "I think he's just expecting to run away with this thing,"

Former FBI Director James B. Comey said Wednesday that he no longer considers himself a Republican. “I just think they’ve lost their way, and I can’t be associated with it,” Mr. Comey said on ABC News podcast “Start Here.” Mr. Comey attributed the change in the party to the 2016 election and said that after he was fired, he started to become more politically aware. He has been a lifelong Republican and said that in today’s party, the only Republican he does respect is former 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney. He called Mr. Romney, who is running for the open Senate seat in Utah, a “person of principle and honor.”

Washington - Dozens of Democratic U.S. Senators on Wednesday introduced a resolution calling for Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt to resign on allegations of ethics lapses. Those relate to the agency’s purchase of a $43,000 sound booth for his office and spending on travel and security. The resolution was signed by 39 senators in the 100-member Senate, which is controlled by Pruitt’s fellow Republicans. Although Republicans can defeat it, the resolution is symbolically important because it represents the most senators ever to call for a Cabinet member’s ouster in resolution, its sponsors said.

(Video) - Former Playboy model Karen McDougal is now free to discuss her alleged affair with President Trump, after reaching an agreement with the tabloid company that had prohibited her from speaking, according to McDougal. McDougal said she is "relieved to be able to tell the truth" about her story. McDougal, who alleges she had a sexual relationship with Mr. Trump over 10 months in 2006 and 2007, had sued over the $150,000 contract she had with American Media, Inc., the company that owns The National Enquirer, for keeping her from speaking about it.

Over the last five years, cancer research has seen the “greatest advances,” including a new approach to treating the complex disease as a “chronic disease,” instead of trying to cure it. “We have seen the greatest advances in cancer medicine in the last five years with drugs targeting the immune system moving into the clinic and showing remarkable response rates with quite a few different malignancies,” Lisa Coussens, Ph.D., Chair of the Department of Cell, Developmental & Cancer Biology, said to Fox News at the American Association for Cancer Research annual conference.

Former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama are building a swimming pool at their home in an exclusive neighborhood of Washington DC. The 44th president and his family purchased the the 8,200 sq ft mansion in the Kalorama area of the capital in 2017 for $8.1million having initially rented the property. Plans are now afoot for a new swimming pool in the grounds, according to TMZ, which says it has seen building permits. The permit application process started in January, the website reports, and there have been a number of reviews about electrics and plumbing in recent months. Last year, it

“If the Trumps were Democrats,” conservative actor James Woods tweeted earlier this month, “Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month.” Woods may be exaggerating a little bit — only Oprah can put herself on the cover of a magazine every month, and it’s her own magazine — but he does make an interesting point. First Lady Melania Trump has not graced the cover of a single magazine in the United States since her husband took office over a year ago. Michelle Obama, on the other hand, was featured on at least thirty

University of Michigan Professor Sarah Ensor published an academic journal article this month that argues that humans should establish erotic relationships with plants. Originally highlighted by the Twitter account New Real Peer Review, Ensor’s journal article explores the field of “ecosexuality,” a term which means the sexual relationship between humans and plants. Advocates in the field argue that the Earth needs to be treated with love. In addition to reducing harmful environmental practices, ecosexuals believe that humans should physically make love to the Earth. Ensor, an English professor at the University of Michigan, begins by citing the “Ecosex Manifesto,” which

Congress may ban the slaughter of cats and dogs to sell as meat or for human consumption and punish offenses with a year in prison and a $2,500 fine. The House Committee on Agriculture approved by voice vote an amendment to the farm bill Wednesday that would make all sales of domesticated canines and felines illegal, Politico reported. “Adopting this policy signals that the United States will not tolerate the disturbing practice in our country,” California Republican Rep.

President Donald Trump’s tax cuts will be anything but for about 1 million California taxpayers who will owe Uncle Sam more money a year from now. They’re the Californians who will lose a collective $12 billion because the new law caps a deduction they have been able to take for paying their state and local taxes, according to a new analysis by the Franchise Tax Board.
