Liberal Filmmaker Resorts to Financial Terrorism to Discourage Third Party Candidates

Moore’s visceral reaction has an air of scurry or scamper about it, as if Moore knows that an increasingly intelligent public is becoming decreasingly interested in his partisan screeching.

Michael Moore

Saying that the American political system has some kinks left to work out isn’t some revolutionary statement.  In fact, it’s a rather mundane and spiritless way to put it.

The truth of the matter is that we are in a dichotic Hellscape of division and hyperbole.  The media is stoking the fears and the flames, hoping for us to turn on our neighbors and fellow Americans, simply because this would be great for their bottom line, what with all the ad revenue accompanying the 24 hour coverage.

Those who promote the two-party, polarized, hyper partisan system all do so for selfish reasons.  They understand that power of division and hatred, and, in many cases, they are dependent upon it for their very survival.

Michael Moore is one of those men who, without outrage to serialize, would be out of a job.  Therefore, it suits him just fine to keep us in the boxes labeled “left” and “right”, poking each side when it’s time to release another film.

That’s why it is no surprise that Moore’s latest outrage is all about a far more successful entrepreneur than he is wanting to jump into the 2020 race as an independent.

Left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore called on opponents of President Donald Trump to boycott Starbucks until the company’s former CEO drops his plans to run as an independent presidential candidate in 2020.

Appearing on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Thursday, Moore immediately expressed his disdain for Schultz, who has boasted of being a “self-made billionaire.”

“Right away by admitting that you had subsidized public housing paid for by the tax dollars of the American people, you aren’t self-made,” Moore explained. “You got a hand-up from us, like we wanted to, we want to help our fellow Americans. It’s a form of socialism, public housing, and yet he’s saying, ‘I’m all self-made.’”

Then Moore went even further off the rails:

“He went to public university, he went to Northern Michigan University actually, and you know, again, financed by taxpayer’s dollars,” he continued. “And he sells coffee, which is essentially water using city water systems, municipal water systems… You got to be a billionaire because we’re paying for the water!”

Moore’s visceral reaction has an air of scurry or scamper about it, as if Moore knows that an increasingly intelligent public is becoming decreasingly interested in his partisan screeching.

Police Say Buffalo Supermarket Shooting was Racially Motivated

Local authorities described the crime as “pure evil”.

Published

on

On Saturday, a young gunman walked into a quiet grocery store in Buffalo, New York and opened fire.

The scene was described as chaotic and “armageddon-like”, as the killer stalked through the store expressionless, cold, and live-streaming the whole thing to the internet.  When the horror ended, ten were dead, several others injured, and the city of Buffalo was left scarred.

Now, in a deplorable revelation, police are disclosing that the crime was racially motivated.

An 18-year-old white gunman shot 10 people to death and wounded three on Saturday at a grocery store in a Black neighborhood of upstate New York, before surrendering after what authorities called an act of “racially motivated violent extremism.”

Authorities said the suspect, who was armed with an assault-style rifle and appeared to have acted alone, drove to Buffalo from his home several hours away to launch the afternoon attack that he broadcast in real time on social media platform Twitch, a live video service owned by Amazon.com.

Eleven of the 13 people struck by gunfire were Black, officials said. The two others were white. The racial breakdown of the dead was not made clear.

Hateful online content has been attributed to the killer.

A document circulating online that appeared to have been written by the killer sketched out a to-do list for the attack, including cleaning the gun and testing the livestream.

In addition, a 180-page manifesto outlining ‘The Great Replacement Theory’ – the idea that white people are being replaced by minorities in the United States and other countries – also circulated online, reportedly authored by Gendron.

The suspect has suggested that he chose this particular grocery store on account of the high minority demographics within the ZIP code, further corroborating his hateful basis.

Wearable Google Device Could Translate Language in Real Time

WHOA!

While there are certainly plenty of reasons to worry about the never-ending march into the technological dystopia before us, we have to admit that some of what were seeing is still pretty darn cool.

For many of us, it’s as though we’re living in an episode of The Jetsons.  Self-driving cars, video phone calls, apps that can tell you what song you’re listening to in the blink of an eye.  These are all revolutionary pieces of technology that we have gained for ourselves in merely the last decade or so.

This week, however, Google may have just taken the cake on powerful consumer electronics, teasing a pair of glasses that can translate languages nearly in real-time.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai on Wednesday teased a pair of smart glasses capable of translating languages in real time.

Pichai showed a video demo of the glasses during Google’s I/O developer summit. While they’re still just a prototype, Google suggested the glasses can show live language translations to the person wearing them.

So, someone with the augmented reality glasses might be able to understand what another person is saying just by reading captions that are presented through the lenses while the other person speaks.

There was no indication as to whether or not the glasses would ever be available to the public, however.
