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.

America has a nobility problem, and

USA Today, by Glenn Harlan Reynolds    Original Article

Our Constitution forbids the creation of “titles of nobility.” The Framers thought it was important enough that the prohibition appears twice, once forbidding the federal government from doing it, and elsewhere extending the ban to the states. And Americans, to the extent that they give the question any thought at all, probably think that the ban works: After all, nobody’s squiring about the United States, sporting titles like Duke of Pennsylvania or Earl of Internal Revenue. But now I’m wondering if we don’t have a problem. First, Charles C.W. Cooke, a Brit who just recently became an American citizen, noted the practice of

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney tore into President Trump on Monday after Trump challenged the intelligence community´s assessment that Russia meddled in the 2016 election, calling Trump´s behavior "disgraceful and detrimental to our democratic principles." Romney´s comments came hours after Trump held a joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, in which he questioned whether Russia was behind efforts to meddle in the 2016 election. "President Trump´s decision to side with Putin over American intelligence agencies is disgraceful and detrimental to our

During a lecture at the Library of Conservatism in Germany, British philosopher Sir Roger Scruton described conservatism as a philosophy that recognizes and acknowledges that good things are easily destroyed but not easily created, such as law, peace, freedom, civility, the security of property and family life. He contends we depend on the cooperation of others for the aforementioned to exist because we have no means or ability to single handedly attain it. He states “the work of destruction is quick, easy and exhilarating.” “The work of creation is slow, laborious and dull.” For the African American, the journey from captivity

In a more innocent time, a 1993 New Yorker cartoon showed one pooch saying to another, “On the internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.” Twenty-five years later, the days when people could stick a toe into the online world without compromising their privacy is a distant memory. Websites, e-services and apps have morphed into an interconnected leviathan that collects more private data than any but the most savvy among us suspects. As the federal government loses interest in our privacy, Illinois legislators should step up to protect us from incessant data mining and reselling.

Romney rips Trump tariffs:
‘Trade wars are a tax on Americans’
The Hill, by Aris Foley    Original Article
Posted By: Tishimself- 7/7/2018 6:04:39     Post Reply
Mitt Romney spoke out against "trade wars" on Friday after President Trump imposed tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese imports, prompting Beijing to respond with its own tariffs on U.S. goods. “Trade wars are a tax on Americans. They have severe consequences for many employers and inevitably cost Americans jobs,” the Utah GOP Senate hopeful said in a statement. Romney said trade wars are particularly punishing for agriculture, which is a sector in Utah the former GOP presidential contender said is “already under duress from wildfire, drought, and challenging public land policies.” “Our national objective should be to open new markets, negotiate free

Small Businesses Win Big

For Kalena Bruce, a fifth-generation cattle farmer in Stockton, Missouri, finding affordable health coverage under Obamacare hasn’t been easy. She’s a young mom and business owner paying $700 a month in premiums alone, not to mention deductibles and copays. That’s why she’s become an advocate for allowing more small businesses like hers to bring down their health care costs by pooling together. It’s an idea that’s worked for Missouri businesses for more than 15 years and will now be available nationwide thanks to the Trump administration’s new rule expanding access to association health plans, or AHPs. Simply put, AHPs allow small businesses

At the heart of the effort to bring down President Trump were two affairs. Unlike the bizarre lies about Moscow hotel rooms and prostitutes in the Steele dossier that was used by the Clinton campaign and its allies to smear President Trump and generate an investigation against him, these affairs truly took place. And they didn’t just expose the malfeasance of four people, but of a corrupt political culture. The affairs between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page in the FBI, and between Senate Intelligence Committee security director James Wolfe and New York Times reporter Ali Watkins, did more than betray the spouses

Jim Jordan and His Accusers

Two former Ohio State University wrestlers are accusing Rep. Jim Jordan of ignoring sexual misconduct by a university physician more than two decades ago when he was an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State. There’s no claim that Jordan engaged in such misconduct, the claim is that he knew about, but failed to take action to stop, sexual harassment by a team doctor. Jordan denies knowing about the doctor’s misconduct. The question, then, isn’t what Jordan did; it’s what he knew. That’s usually a difficult kind of inquiry. In Jordan’s case, the two accusers are highly suspect. According to Chuck Ross at

How the Left opposes
the philosophy of American independence

On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress, composed of representatives from the 13 British colonies in America, declared unanimously and officially that these colonies “are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States … Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown.” One would suppose that virtually every citizen in the United States of America knows that piece of history. Too many have forgotten its meaning. The revisionist myths taught by leftists in control of our school system have diminished the great accomplishment of America’s founding generation. Ask the American on the street why the United States declared independence,

You say you want a revolution? That’s funny, because you seem like the type of person who cries over a broken fingernail. Late-stage identity-based leftism is Revenge of the Nerds writ large, which seems amusing until you realize how much revenge the nerds really have in them. Every racial and sexual misfit and under-performer who was bullied in school—and possibly for reasons that had far more to do with their personality than their skin color or sexuality—is now given the whip hand and is more than willing to take out their pain on those they will never entirely forgive for mocking

GOP Senate candidate Mitt Romney on Monday said that it is "too early" for him to say whether he would support President Trump in the 2020 election. Romney, who last week won the GOP nomination in the Utah Senate race, has gone back and forth on his praise of the president. "It´s too early to say who I will support," Romney said while appearing on MSNBC. "I did say I think he´ll get reelected, that´s not an endorsement."

A wave of nostalgia appears to have swept the nation, with the swinging sixties creeping back into fashion. Hawaiian shirts, traditional barbershops and vintage buys are all making a comeback, and with it, retro scents.

Surprisingly, the fragrance specialists say millennials are driving the craze, along with the trend of adopting a sixties lifestyle. An expert for the brand explained the sixties could be defined by the prominence in scents with lavender, tobacco and sandalwood notes, moving away from

One disastrous tweet has finally revealed Elon Musk for what he is: a fraud. Enraged that a British cave diver called his idea to rescue the Thai soccer team for what it was — “a p.r. stunt [with] absolutely no chance of working” — Musk took to Twitter and called him a “pedo.” Just like that, Tesla’s market value plummeted by $2 billion. Musk has been in business since 2002. His stated goal is nothing short of transforming humanity through his products: his electric cars, space travel, and an underground high-speed Hyperloop system. He has yet to succeed at anything but somehow spins every

Nearly two years ago, I moved with my daughter, who was then 7, from Yonkers to a small town in Pennsylvania. It’s minutes outside of New Jersey, but right in the heart of Donald Trump’s America. Sixty-one percent of the people in my county voted for him. Drive through most communities in my town and you’ll still see large blue Trump campaign signs on perfectly manicured lawns. Chances are, you’ll spot at least two newer-model pickup trucks with Confederate flag license plate frames. As I, a black woman, move through my daily routine, I exchange nonverbal social pleasantries with my neighbors

CLEARWATER — Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced Friday that his agency will not arrest a man deputies say shot and killed another man during an argument over a handicap parking space. The incident falls under Florida’s self-defense law known as "stand your ground," the sheriff said during a news conference. The law gives immunity to those in fear of their lives who use force to defend themselves. The shooting "is within the bookends of ‘stand your ground’ and within the bookends of force being justified," the sheriff said, later adding, "I’m not saying I agree with it, but I don’t make

DUBAI - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday cautioned U.S. President Donald Trump about pursuing hostile policies against Tehran, saying “America should know ... war with Iran is the mother of all wars,” but he did not rule out peace between the two countries, either. Iran faces increased U.S. pressure and looming sanctions after Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from a 2015 international deal over Iran’s nuclear program. Addressing a gathering of Iranian diplomats, Rouhani said: “Mr Trump, don’t play with the lion’s tail, this would only lead to regret,” the state new agency IRNA reported. “America should know that

In the past few days, President Trump has given at least some Republicans reason to express displeasure over his relationship with Russia. First he performed a pathetic ritual of subservience before Vladimir Putin, standing beside the Russian leader — after a private meeting between the two, which no aides were permitted to attend — and dismissing the copious evidence of a Russian attack on the 2016 election in deference to Putin’s word. Then we learned that Putin had suggested that we make Americans available to the Kremlin for questioning, including Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia, in exchange

(Snip) The most alarming information gather by the NTSB seems to relate to the weather conditions at the time of the accident. Weener said that there were recorded anemometer readings of 73 mph. To put this in context, he said hurricane-force winds are thought to begin at about 75 mph. Based on recordings from witnesses, Weener also estimated that waves were around four feet,

Last Friday, Maine Democrat Zak Ringelstein wasn’t ready to consider himself a formal member of the Democratic Socialists of America, even if he appreciated the organization’s values and endorsement in his bid to become a United States senator. Three days later, he told The Associated Press that was ready to become the only major-party Senate candidate in the nation to be a dues-paying democratic socialist. The swift evolution is latest evidence of a nationwide surge in the strength and popularity of an organization that, until recently, operated on the fringes of the liberal movement’s farthest left flank.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif — From Malibu to Santa Cruz, wealthy people are blocking access to California’s publicly owned beaches. And no group has fought the public longer than the gated community of Hollister Ranch, about 130 miles north of Los Angeles. For more than 36 years, residents there have spent millions of dollars on lawyers and lobbyists to bar the hoi polloi from an 8.5-mile-long beach adorned with several coves. In May, after more than four years of litigation over public access to the beach, a settlement was announced between the ranch cooperative, on one side, and the California Coastal Commission
