UH OH: Liberals Turning on Progressive Icon George Soros, Giving Him Taste of His Own Medicine

Published

George Soros

You’d be hard pressed to find a more devious, diabolical, and downright deceptive leader in the progressive movement than George Soros. This corrupt billionaire is like a Bond villain in the scope of his scheming, throwing his money to every cause designed to undermine liberty and freedom in America and around the world.

However, it appears that not even he is invulnerable to the rabid left-wingers who comprise his fan base, a lesson he’s now learning thanks in large part to political correctness. Many on the left are turning on their hero, labeling him a “sexist” for his recent attack on NY Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.

It’s always fun watching liberals eat their own.

Soros slammed Democratic New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand for her role in pushing Franken to resign over the allegations. Soros accused Gillibrand of turning on Franken, whom Soros said he admired, “in order to improve her chances” for the 2020 presidential elections.

“With midterms approaching and a larger-than-ever bench of female candidates running for office — and after that, a presidential race where several of the potential contenders are women — we’ll see just how well Democrats, especially those with the power to influence elections, learned the lessons of 2016,” feminist author Jill Filipovic wrote in a Tuesday column for CNN titled, “If Democrats agree with Soros’ sexist comments, they’re in trouble.”

“If Soros’ comments are any indication, there’s a significant chunk of the Democratic electorate — I imagine a mostly male chunk — who haven’t learned much at all,” she concluded.

MSNBC host Chris Hayes called Soros’s defense of Franken “sexist garbage,” which he said “should be lit on fire.” Others made similar arguments.

Vox writer Dylan Matthews described Soros as “misogynistic.”

It would certainly be nice to see Soros lose some of his influence in the liberal movement, and this certainly seems to be the case, at least to a limited degree. However, the man has a nearly endless supply of money, and he uses that to not only fund groups and causes, but to do some underhanded political maneuvering as well.

Some folks, however, are looking for an excuse to overlook his wrongdoing by stating that to pursue the matter with Soros would be poisonous to the movement. As you can see, the left is totally inconsistent in the application of its principles.

Harrowing Tale of Week-Long Bear Attack is a Hoax, Say Investigators

Well this is embarrassing.

It was only a few days ago that the world became familiar with a truly stupendous tale out of America’s last frontier. A man, stranded at a remote cabin in the Alaskan bush, was being haunted and hunted every night by a vicious bear, after being mauled ever so slightly on his first day on site.  His rescuers arrived after a week of these nightly attacks, and only after the stranded man was able to create a plea for help large enough to be seen by the air. The only issue with the story is that the whole thing appears to be made up, at least according to local researchers.  While the story went viral worldwide and more details came to light about the incident, some community members began to express concerns and doubt about the veracity of the tale. The cabin [Richard] Jessee took refuge in, as it turns out, was not his. It belonged to a fellow miner, though Jessee’s cabin sat only a few yards away. “We went out there to the cabin, but we couldn’t find a bear track within 500 feet of the place, but it should have been all torn up, according to his story,” said one anonymous source known to the Nugget. “There’s no hair, no tracks, no scat, nothing.” And also… The Coast Guard crew delivered him to an ambulance in Nome, which took him to Norton Sound Health Regional hospital. “We were told to get a man who had been mauled by a bear,” said Jim West Jr., the Nome Volunteer Fire and Ambulance chief. “He walked off the helicopter and walked into the ambulance. He had no animal bites and wasn’t bleeding.” Local police do admit that the area is known for its bear population, however, and the traumatized Jessee is…

USPS Delivers Defiant Message to White House Regarding Vaccine Mandate

This is a slap in the face to the Biden administration.

Published

According to the Biden administration, trouble is coming, and it will arrive in the form of another prolonged economic downturn and possible lockdowns, if we don’t somehow get this “delta” variant of COVID-19 under control. The issue, according to many medical experts, is that this mutated version of the primary coronavirus pandemic strain, is spreading too rapidly among the unvaccinated, and without a significant number of Americans suddenly deciding to get inoculated in the near future, we may not reach “herd immunity” for months. Now, in an effort to speed up the stagnating vaccination rate, President Joe Biden is set to announce that all federal workers should be vaccinated, or face a grueling COVID testing protocol that was intentionally designed to be uncomfortable. The United States Postal Service isn’t taking the news lying down, however. The influential American Postal Workers Union on Wednesday said, at this point, it opposes a coronavirus vaccine mandate from the Biden administration but encouraged workers to voluntarily take the jabs. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said in a statement obtained by Fox News. The union did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The union said in the statement that the safety of its workers is “of paramount importance” but “at this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations.” The Biden administration’s mandate will not be 100% iron clad according to sources familiar with the matter, but, rather, would be an incredibly strong suggestion with some terribly annoying hoops to jump through to abstain.
