Big-money groups are helping to organize and fuel ‘AstroTurf’ progressive uprisings.
When left-wing organizers were recruiting people to travel to Washington, D.C., to try to “shut down the inauguration of Donald Trump” and “paralyze the city itself,” they offered a number of incentives — free housing, food, and also legal assistance in case of arrest. They also organized training camps, workshops and media-encounter events in the run-up to the main event: the big riot.
On Jan. 20, rioters met at Logan Circle in downtown Washington, D.C., armed with crow bars, metal poles, hammers, bricks and explosive devices, according to the indictment. They were dressed all in black with hoods and masks to conceal their identities, and goggles and gas masks to reduce the effects of tear gas.
They rampaged through downtown Washington, D.C., using verbal commands to move as a black bloc and smashed the windows of an Au Bon Pain, broke the windows of a parked limousine and assaulted the limousine driver, and pulled trash cans into streets. The group also smashed the windows of a Starbucks, a Bank of America, a Bobby Vans restaurant, a McDonald’s and a second Starbucks inside the Crowne Plaza hotel before breaking the windows of a police car and attempting to crash through a police line, injuring a police officer.
Scientists from the University of Bonn in Germany think they should drug people with oxytocin to make them more welcoming to immigrants.
The scientists wanted to test the hypothesis that social conditioning combined with doses of Oxytocin would increase the likelihood and amount of donations to refugees from the Middle East. The participants were given 50 Euros and had to decide how much money to donate to 25 local people in need versus 25 refugees in need. The kicker is that at the end if there is any money left over they get to keep it. Once the drugs and the societal pressure kicks in though, people were reportedly much more likely to hand over their cash.
The person in charge of the study, Professor Rene Hurlemann, said that society developed “xenophobia” as an evolutionary means of survival. However, Hurlemann doesn’t seem to care much about that. Hurlemann wants to investigate the mechanisms of xenophobia on the neurobiological level. So, to do that, he decided to drug people with happy pills and see if that would make them more accepting of immigrants.
This is what counts as science today – a study the figured out that if you give people more Oxytocin and you tell them it’s normal to give money to refugees that they’ll give more money to refugees. Perhaps these scientists should take a literature class. In 1931, Aldous Huxley wrote Brave New World, in which people were given a drug called soma in order to sooth them and incapacitate their ability to think critically. It did not end well for them.
Missouri lawmaker posts, then deletes, message daring Secret Service to investigate her.
A Democratic Missouri State Senator openly called for the assassination of President Donald Trump Thursday.
“I hope Trump is assassinated!” wrote Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal on Facebook.
Chappelle-Nadal’s comment came during an exchange with a Facebook user named Christopher Gagné, who expressed concern that his cousin in the Secret Service could be in danger due to the current political climate.

Since the death of Connor, 20, one bar at the resort was closed, 10,000 gallons of “illicit alcohol” was seized, and State issued its warning.
An influential Senate committee has opened an investigation into recent alcohol poisonings and blackouts of U.S. tourists to Mexican resorts, including one at a posh Cancun area all-inclusive that claimed the life of a Wisconsin woman in January.
The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee kicked off the probe with a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson this week demanding what it knows about the reports and why the department issued a warning to tourists about drinking alcohol in Yucatan resorts.
“I write to request information about a number of reported incidents of American tourists vacationing in Mexico consuming potentially tainted alcohol, including information regarding the death of 20-year-old Wisconsinite, Abbey Connor,” penned the chairman of the committee, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson.
Johnson has been conducting his own probe into Connor’s death and the reports of others being poisoned by bad alcohol in the resort area popular with Americans. Connor died in January days after she and her brother were found face down in a pool after drinking at the Iberostar Paraiso del Mar, between Cancun and Playa del Carmen.
Book Summary: “Dinesh D’Souza explodes the Left’s big lie. He expertly exonerates President Trump and his supporters, then uncovers the Democratic Left’s long, cozy relationship with Nazism: how the racist and genocidal acts of early Democrats inspired Adolf Hitler’s campaign of death; how fascist philosophers influenced the great 20th century lions of the American Left; and how today’s anti-free speech, anti-capitalist, anti-religious liberty, pro-violence Democratic Party is a frightening simulacrum of the Nazi Party.”
An extensive study that professors and data scientists at Harvard and M.I.T. conducted has concluded that Breitbart News does not represent the “alt-right,” undercutting the legitimacy of left-wing activists, Democrats, reporters in the legacy media, Never Trumpers, and establishment Republican bobbing heads and mouthpieces who rushed after Charlottesville to reflexively smear, malign, and defame Breitbart News as an “alt-right” outlet associated with white supremacists and Nazis.
In a New York Times magazine cover story explaining how there is “no real precursor for Breitbart” of an outlet that has so quickly emerged to “dominate the political conversation in a pivotal election,” renowned essayist Wil S. Hylton spoke to Harvard law professor Yochai Benkler, who has studied the “rise and influence” of Breitbart News in addition to the news media ecosystem with colleagues at Harvard and M.I.T. with a “colossal database.” Their Media Cloud database has at least ten years worth of articles and websites that enables them to study how information and news travel.
According to Hylton, “the last thing Yochai Benkler noted before” Hylton “left his office at Harvard was that his team had performed a textual analysis of all the stories in their database, and they found a surprising result”:
“One thing that came out very clearly from our study is that Breitbart is not talking about these issues in the same way you would find on the extreme right,’’ he said. ‘‘They don’t use the same language you find on sites like VDARE and The Daily Stormer’’ — two sites connected to the white-nationalist alt-right movement. He paused for a moment, then added: ‘‘Breitbart is not the alt-right.’’
The reporting of Kessler’s background, as well as that of Charlottesville mayor and Democrat activist Mike Signer and Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy, has convinced me that Charlottesville was a Democratic Party black operation, planned, organized, and carried out to its successful conclusion, to make the media portray all these conservative whites as stupid, racist, and violent. I believe that it was done by this soulless young man, who succeeded in selling himself to the dumb-bunny right-wingers as one of them.
Evidence is turning up from, of all places, the Southern Poverty Law Center, as well as Breitbart and others, that this character, Jason Kessler, who organized the suspicious and supposed Alt-Right demonstration in Charlottesville, Va. that blew up in everyone’s face, is a cunning lefty holdover from the Occupy Wall Street movement and a former Barack Obama supporter. I smell Soros money, sabotage, and Democrat dirty tricks here.
I’ve been suspicious of the nature of the violence at this supposed Alt-Right demonstration since the news first began breaking. It is no secret that radical elements in the Democrat left have been routinely utilizing violence when it suits their purposes. We also know via secret tapings by Project Veritas that the Democratic Party has a semi-official director of dirty ops, Dick Creamer, who hires, trains, and emplaces professional disruptors to encounter, engage, and infiltrate conservative demonstrations to foment violence, assuring that the demonstrations then become the targets of negative media attention – naturally, against the conservative side. Creamer was caught on videotape boasting about his nefarious capabilities when he thought he was in friendly company.
