What is LOW INFORMATION VOTER? What does LOW INFORMATION VOTER mean?

What is LOW INFORMATION VOTER? What does LOW INFORMATION VOTER mean? LOW INFORMATION VOTER meaning - LOW INFORMATION VOTER definition - LOW INFORMATION VOTER explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Low information voters, also known as LIVs or misinformation voters, are people who may vote, but who are generally poorly informed about issues. The phrase is mainly used in the United States, and has become popular since the mid-1990s. American pollster and political scientist Samuel Popkin coined the term "low-information" in 1991 when he used the phrase "low-information signaling" in his book The Reasoning Voter: Communication and Persuasion in Presidential Campaigns. Low-information signaling referred to cues or heuristics used by voters, in lieu of substantial information, to determine who to vote for. Examples include voters liking Bill Clinton for eating at McDonald's, and perceiving John Kerry and Barack Obama as elitist for wind-surfing and golfing respectively. The ideological views of most low-information voters tend to be more moderate than those of high-information voters. Low-information voters are less likely to vote, and when they do they generally vote for a candidate they find personally appealing. They tend to be swing voters, and they tend to vote split-ticket more than well-informed voters do. Researchers attribute this to low-information voters not having developed clear cut ideological preferences. Linguist George Lakoff has written that the term is a pejorative mainly used by American liberals to refer to people who vote conservative against their own interests, and assumes they do it because they lack sufficient information. Liberals, he said, attribute the problem in part to deliberate Republican efforts at misinforming voters. Thirty-year Republican House of Representatives and Senate staffer Mike Lofgren, in a 2011 article titled "Goodbye to All That: Reflections of a GOP Operative Who Left the Cult", characterized low-information voters as anti-intellectual and hostile-to-science "religious cranks", and claimed Republicans are deliberately manipulating LIVs to undermine their confidence in American democratic institutions. Popular syndicated talk show host Rush Limbaugh uses the term with regular frequency to denote voters who pull the lever for Democratic candidates for largely esoteric reasons. In a March 25, 2013 transcript, Rush says "I have never said that low-information voters are stupid. I just said they don't know what they think they know. They are prisoners to the media, which has dumbed them down. Low-information voters can be doctors. Low-information voters can be scientists. They can be among all walks of life. It has nothing to do with IQ. It has to do with what they don't know because of their media sources. Low-information voters are clearly people that don't have all the information available to make a voting choice. That's all they are. And they're all over the place. And most of them do vote Democrat. Most of them did vote for Obama. It's not a comment on their intelligence. It's not that they're stupid or don't understand the issues. They just haven't had it all explained to them." A 2012 paper by six American political scientists called "A Theory of Political Parties: Groups, Policy Demands and Nominations in American Politics" challenged the idea that Republicans want a low-information electorate, and argued instead that both major American parties do. Noting that 95% of incumbents in the highly polarized House of Representatives win re-election despite voters' preference for centrist representation, the paper theorizes that voters' infrequent penalizing of extremist behaviour represents not approval, but a lack of attention and information.

The Epic Story of Wealth, Power, and Fairness That Gave America the Income Tax (2002)
 
47:12
In 1894, an amendment was attached to the Wilson–Gorman Tariff Act that attempted to impose a federal tax of two percent on incomes over $4,000 (equal to $111,000 in 2016).[13] The federal income tax was strongly favored in the South, and it was moderately supported in the eastern North Central states, but it was strongly opposed in the Far West and the Northeastern States (with the exception of New Jersey).[14] The tax was derided as "un-Democratic, inquisitorial, and wrong in principle".[15] In Pollock v. Farmers' Loan & Trust Co., the U.S. Supreme Court declared certain taxes on incomes – such as those on property under the 1894 Act – to be unconstitutionally unapportioned direct taxes. The Court reasoned that a tax on income from property should be treated as a tax on "property by reason of its ownership" and so should be required to be apportioned. The reasoning was that taxes on the rents from land, the dividends from stocks, and so forth, burdened the property generating the income in the same way that a tax on "property by reason of its ownership" burdened that property. After Pollock, while income taxes on wages (as indirect taxes) were still not required to be apportioned by population, taxes on interest, dividends, and rental income were required to be apportioned by population. The Pollock ruling made the source of the income (e.g., property versus labor, etc.) relevant in determining whether the tax imposed on that income was deemed to be "direct" (and thus required to be apportioned among the states according to population) or, alternatively, "indirect" (and thus required only to be imposed with geographical uniformity).[16] Dissenting in Pollock, Justice John Marshall Harlan stated: When, therefore, this court adjudges, as it does now adjudge, that Congress cannot impose a duty or tax upon personal property, or upon income arising either from rents of real estate or from personal property, including invested personal property, bonds, stocks, and investments of all kinds, except by apportioning the sum to be so raised among the States according to population, it practically decides that, without an amendment of the Constitution – two-thirds of both Houses of Congress and three-fourths of the States concurring – such property and incomes can never be made to contribute to the support of the national government.[17] Members of Congress responded to Pollock by expressing widespread concern that many of the wealthiest Americans had consolidated too much economic power.[18] In Commissioner v. Glenshaw Glass Co., 348 U.S. 426 (1955), the Supreme Court laid out what has become the modern understanding of what constitutes "gross income" to which the Sixteenth Amendment applies, declaring that income taxes could be levied on "accessions to wealth, clearly realized, and over which the taxpayers have complete dominion". Under this definition, any increase in wealth – whether through wages, benefits, bonuses, sale of stock or other property at a profit, bets won, lucky finds, awards of punitive damages in a lawsuit, qui tam actions – are all within the definition of income, unless the Congress makes a specific exemption, as it has for items such as life insurance proceeds received by reason of the death of the insured party,[48] gifts, bequests, devises and inheritances,[49] and certain scholarships.[50] On December 22, 2006, a three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit vacated[54] its unanimous decision (of August 2006) in Murphy v. Internal Revenue Service and United States.[55] In an unrelated matter, the court had also granted the government's motion to dismiss Murphy's suit against the Internal Revenue Service. Under federal sovereign immunity, a taxpayer may sue the federal government, but not a government agency, officer, or employee (with some exceptions). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sixteenth_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution

Dangerous People Are Teaching Your Kids

Dangerous people are filling the heads of young people with dangerous nonsense. Who are these people? They are what Jordan Peterson calls “the post-modernists:” neo-Marxist professors who dominate our colleges and universities.

For Students: http://l.prageru.com/2aozfkP JOIN our Educators Network! http://l.prageru.com/2aoz2y9 Script: You may not realize it, but you are currently funding some dangerous people. They are indoctrinating young minds throughout the West with their resentment-ridden ideology. They have made it their life's mission to undermine Western civilization itself, which they regard as corrupt, oppressive and “patriarchal.” If you're a taxpayer—or paying for your kid's liberal arts degree—you're underwriting this gang of nihilists. You're supporting ideologues who claim that all truth is subjective; that all sex differences are socially constructed; and that Western imperialism is the sole source of all Third World problems. They are the post-modernists, pushing “progressive” activism at a college near you. They produce the mobs that violently shut down campus speakers; the language police who enshrine into law use of fabricated gender pronouns; and the deans whose livelihoods depend on madly rooting out discrimination where little or none exists. Their thinking took hold in Western universities in the ‘60s and ‘70s, when the true believers of the radical left became the professors of today. And now we rack up education-related debt—not so that our children learn to think critically, write clearly, or speak properly, but so they can model their mentors' destructive agenda. It's now possible to complete an English degree and never encounter Shakespeare—one of those dead white males whose works underlie our “society of oppression.” To understand and oppose the post-modernists, the ideas by which they orient themselves must be clearly identified. First is their new unholy trinity of diversity, equity and inclusion. Diversity is defined not by opinion, but by race, ethnicity or sexual identity; equity is no longer the laudable goal of equality of opportunity, but the insistence on equality of outcome; and inclusion is the use of identity-based quotas to attain this misconceived state of equity. All the classic rights of the West are to be considered secondary to these new values. Take, for example, freedom of speech—the very pillar of democracy. The post-modernists refuse to believe that people of good will can exchange ideas and reach consensus. Their world is instead a Hobbesian nightmare of identity groups warring for power. They don't see ideas that run contrary to their ideology as simply incorrect. They see them as integral to the oppressive system they wish to supplant, and consider it a moral obligation to stifle and constrain their expression.

JOIN PragerFORCE! For Students: http://l.prageru.com/29SgPaX JOIN our Educators Network! http://l.prageru.com/2c8vsff Script: “He’s a fascist!” For decades, this has been a favorite smear of the left, aimed at those on the right. Every Republican president—for that matter, virtually every Republican—since the 1970s has been called a fascist; now, more than ever. This label is based on the idea that fascism is a phenomenon of the political right. The left says it is, and some self-styled white supremacists and neo-Nazis embrace the label. But are they correct? To answer this question, we have to ask what fascism really means: What is its underlying ideology? Where does it even come from? These are not easy questions to answer. We know the name of the philosopher of capitalism: Adam Smith. We know the name of the philosopher of Marxism: Karl Marx. But who’s the philosopher of fascism? Yes—exactly. You don’t know. Don’t feel bad. Almost no one knows. This is not because he doesn’t exist, but because historians, most of whom are on the political left, had to erase him from history in order to avoid confronting fascism’s actual beliefs. So, let me introduce him to you. His name is Giovanni Gentile. Born in 1875, he was one of the world’s most influential philosophers in the first half of the twentieth century. Gentile believed that there were two “diametrically opposed” types of democracy. One is liberal democracy, such as that of the United States, which Gentile dismisses as individualistic—too centered on liberty and personal rights—and therefore selfish. The other, the one Gentile recommends, is “true democracy,” in which individuals willingly subordinate themselves to the state. Like his philosophical mentor, Karl Marx, Gentile wanted to create a community that resembles the family, a community where we are “all in this together.” It’s easy to see the attraction of this idea. Indeed, it remains a common rhetorical theme of the left. For example, at the 1984 convention of the Democratic Party, the governor of New York, Mario Cuomo, likened America to an extended family where, through the government, people all take care of each other. Nothing’s changed. Thirty years later, a slogan of the 2012 Democratic Party convention was, “The government is the only thing we all belong to.” They might as well have been quoting Gentile. Now, remember, Gentile was a man of the left. He was a committed socialist. For Gentile, fascism is a form of socialism—indeed, its most workable form. While the socialism of Marx mobilizes people on the basis of class, fascism mobilizes people by appealing to their national identity as well as their class. Fascists are socialists with a national identity. German Fascists in the 1930s were called Nazis—basically a contraction of the term “national socialist.” For Gentile, all private action should be oriented to serve society; there is no distinction between the private interest and the public interest. Correctly understood, the two are identical. And who is the administrative arm of the society? It’s none other than the state. Consequently, to submit to society is to submit to the state—not just in economic matters, but in all matters. Since everything is political, the state gets to tell everyone how to think and what to do. For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/fascism-right-or-left

25. Democratic Justice: Applications
 
51:25
Moral Foundations of Politics (PLSC 118) Professor Shapiro guides the class through some practical applications of his theory of democratic justice. As applied to governing children, a sphere in which power-based hierarchy is inevitable, he circumscribes the role of the state as the fiduciary over children's basic interests and the role of parents as the fiduciaries over children's best interests. In other words, the state ensures the provision of the resources necessary for survival while the parents provide the resources to enable children to thrive as well as possible. Although some tensions will develop, such dual hierarchies enable a system of checks on these power relationships. And these hierarchies are self-liquidating once the child reaches adulthood, and because of self-determination, the child can no longer be disenfranchised. Professor Shapiro also examines hierarchy in the workplace. If exit costs are high, what he calls a Dickensian nightmare, then increased regulation is justified, but if we are living in a surfer's paradise, with low exit costs and a high social wage, then the firm's pursuit of efficiency should not be impeded. How regulation is applied depends on where the society falls on this continuum. In closing, Professor Shapiro offers his remarks about the staying power and legacy of democracy. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

A Great American Secret: How Private Wealth is Changing the World
 
58:05
A foundation in the United States is a type of charitable organization. However, the Internal Revenue Code distinguishes between private foundations (usually funded by an individual, family, or corporation) and public charities (community foundations and other nonprofit groups that raise money from the general public). Private foundations have more restrictions and fewer tax benefits than public charities like community foundations. The two most famous philanthropists of the Gilded Age pioneered the sort of large-scale private philanthropy of which foundations are a modern pillar: John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie. The businessmen each accumulated private wealth at a scale previously unknown outside of royalty, and each in their later years decided to give much of it away. Carnegie gave away the bulk of his fortune in the form of one-time gifts to build libraries and museums before divesting almost the entirety of his remaining fortune in the Carnegie Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation of New York. Rockefeller followed suit (notably building the University of Chicago) and gave nearly half of his fortune to create the Rockefeller Foundation. Meanwhile, in 1914, Frederick Goff, a well-known banker at the Cleveland Trust Company, sought to eliminate the "dead hand" of organized philanthropy and so created the first community foundation in Cleveland. He created a corporately structured foundation that could utilize community gifts in a responsive and need-appropriate manner. Scrutiny and control resided in the "live hand" of the public as opposed to the "dead hand" of the founders of private foundations. Starting at the end of World War II, the United States's high top income tax rates spurred a burst of foundations and trusts being created, of which many were simply tax shelters. President Harry S. Truman publicly raised this issue in 1950, resulting in the passage later that year of a federal law that established new rigor and definition to the practice. The law did not go very far in regulating tax-exempt foundations, however, a fact which was made obvious throughout the rest of that decade as the foundation-as-tax-refuge model continued to be propagated by financial advisors to wealthy families and individuals. Several attempts at passing a more complete type of reform during the 1960s culminated in the Tax Reform Act of 1969, which remains the controlling legislation in the United States. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foundation_(United_States_law) Warren Edward Buffett (/ˈbʌfᵻt/; born August 30, 1930)[2] is an American business magnate, investor, and philanthropist. He is considered by some to be one of the most successful investors in the world,[3][4] and as of March 2017 is the second wealthiest person in the United States, and the fourth wealthiest in the world, with a total net worth of $73.3 billion.[5] Born in Omaha, Buffett developed an interest in business and investing in his youth, eventually entering the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1947 before transferring and graduating from University of Nebraska–Lincoln. After graduating at 19, Buffett enrolled at Columbia Business School of Columbia University, learning and eventually creating his investment philosophy around a concept pioneered by Benjamin Graham–value investing. He attended New York Institute of Finance to specialize his economics background and soon after began various business partnerships, including one with Graham. After meeting Charlie Munger, Buffett created the Buffett Partnership. His firm would eventually acquire a textile manufacturing firm called Berkshire Hathaway and assume its name to create a diversified holding company. Buffett has been the chairman and largest shareholder of Berkshire Hathaway since 1970,[6] and his business exploits have had him referred to as the "Wizard", "Oracle" or "Sage" of Omaha by global media outlets.[7][8] He is noted for his adherence to value investing and for his personal frugality despite his immense wealth.[9] Buffett is a notable philanthropist, having pledged to give away 99 percent[10] of his fortune to philanthropic causes, primarily via the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. In 2009, with Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, Warren founded The Giving Pledge, whereby billionaires pledge to give away at least half of their fortunes.[11] He is also active in contributing to political causes, having endorsed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the 2016 U.S. presidential election; he has publicly opposed the policies, actions, and statements of the current U.S. president, Donald Trump. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warren_Buffett

Glenn Weyl Book Lecture: Radical Markets Uprooting Capitalism and Democracy for a Just Society

Barack Obama receives the Paul H. Douglas Award Today | Speech at University of Illinois
 
01:11:19
Former President Barack Obama is delivering a speech on the "state of our democracy" at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus Friday, in what will set his tone for campaigning ahead of the November midterm elections. The former commander-in-chief is receiving the Paul H. Douglas Award for Ethics in Government, which will be given to him by Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill. Obama, who has chimed in from time-to-time to remark on President Trump's words and actions, is expected to address threats to the United States' democracy and the consequences of apathy, and urge fellow Americans to vote this November. The award Obama is receiving is the same one that was bestowed upon the late Sen. John McCain, for whom Obama gave a eulogy last week in Washington.

Official Trump @War: Full Movie

(UPDATE: We've Been Restricted by YouTube. Alternate Location To Protest: StreamTrumpAtWar.com. This movie was getting too popular Trump @ War, a movie documentary by Steve Bannon, is an amazing and detailed accounting of the revolution between liberal and conservative ideologies that took place in the months leading up to the 2016 elections. Most people who followed mainstream liberal media outlets never saw the depth of the actual force and violence exacted against Trump supporters during demonstrations and rallies. This film is a display of the no-holds-barred attacks against his supporters, and a truthful exposition of the efforts to diminish Trump’s message and stop him from winning the election in November of 2016. Bannon, former White House chief strategist, released this movie to chronicle Trump’s road to the White House. More importantly, Bannon says the movie shows why it’s critical for every American who voted for him in 2016 to support him in the midterms.

Republican tax bill will have 'detrimental impact' on Puerto Rico, Democrats say
 
59:05
House Democrats, teachers, and healthcare workers held a press conference on Dec. 7, 2017 to discuss the tax bill being debated in the Senate. Passing such legislation would place a 20 percent excise tax on goods and services that flow between American businesses with operations in Puerto Rico and the United States. “Many times now, I’ve called this legislation a missed opportunity,” said Rep. Richard E. Neal. “It’s a missed opportunity in that the tax bill was a chance for Congress to help Puerto Rico get on solid economic footing. Instead, it’s clear that very little attention was paid to the unique circumstances U.S. territories face. Puerto Rico has just suffered terrible devastation – folks there are still in the process of rebuilding and putting the pieces of their lives back together after Hurricane Maria. The last thing they need is to get hit again. The pain that Republicans’ tax bill will cause the people of Puerto Rico – who have already endured so much – is yet another reason why Congress should reject this legislation.”

Republicans Have Trifecta Control of 25 States & Need 6 More to Call for a Constitutional Convention
 
22:33
https://democracynow.org - Historian Nancy MacLean says much of the radical right’s agenda is being pursued at the state level. Republicans already have "trifecta control" in 25 states—control of the governor’s seat and both chambers of their legislative bodies—compared to six states for Democrats. "The ultimate Big Bang of this project is that they want to change our Constitution," Maclean says. "They are actually building towards a constitutional convention. So they have 28 states that have called for this constitutional convention. They need six more."

09:06:12
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were teenagers, both testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday. Ford said during her testimony that she was "100 percent" sure that Kavanaugh assaulted her, while Kavanaugh said that he was "100 percent" sure he had not done anything of the kind. The differences are irreconcilable. After the full day of dramatic testimony, Kavanaugh's supporters in the Senate were largely ready to move forward with his confirmation vote, though a few key senators remained undecided Thursday night as his confirmation hangs in the balance. The Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation Friday.

Demagogue: The Fight to Save Democracy - Michael Signer
 
01:28:35
http://www.progressivebookclub.com/pbc2/viewBook.pbc?id=1242 Demagogue: The Fight to Save Democracy from Its Worst Enemies Distinguished Speaker: Congressman Tom Perriello (D-VA) Featured Panelists: Peter Beinart, Editor-at-Large, The New Republic, Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations Rachel Kleinfeld, Co-Founder and Executive Director, Truman National Security Project Michael Signer, formerly Senior Policy Advisor, Center for American Progress Action Fund; Author, Demagogue: The Fight to Save Democracy from Its Worst Enemies Discussion Moderated by: Brian Katulis, Senior Fellow, the Center for American Progress Action Fund; Author, The Prosperity Agenda A provocative dicussion about the future of democracy in the post-Bush years. Michael Signer's debut book, Demagogue illuminates how humanity's urge for liberty can triumph over the dark forces that threaten our freedom. The demagogue is a dangerous byproduct of democracy, an authoritarian leader who owes his initial rise to the democratic support of the masses and who will go to almost any extreme to expand his power. This book describes not only these fascinating, often violent usurpers of freedom, from Cleon of Athens to Huey Long to Adolf Hitler, but also the heroes who have resisted them, from Aristophanes to Thomas Jefferson to Hannah Arendt. Demagogue also unravels the mystery of how 21st century leaders have made such profound mistakes in Iraq and elsewhere, unleashing democracy's ancient enemy rather than securing a new democratic world. Signer presents a bold new theory of democracy and American power, "exemplarism," revealing a host of new, innovative measures that can undermine demagogues, strengthen democracy, and create a freer world. In the end, Signer presciently reveals how America's historic victory over the demagogue at home can help a new generation of leaders rescue democracy across the world. Praise for Demagogue: "Michael Signer has written a strikingly original book. Demagogue tells the story of democracy by analyzing ...

First of all, this is a move towards tax harmonisation. But tax harmonisation is a cartel operated by governments against the interests of citizens. The United Kingdom Independence Party, which I represent, supports tax competition, not tax harmonisation. Secondly, the proposal aims to increase energy taxes. This will reduce the profitability of European companies, and undermine Europe's competitiveness in global markets. Thirdly, the proposal adds yet another layer of complexity to the existing multiple layers of energy taxes and regulations. And fourth, taxation is and must remain a national competence. This measure represents an unwarranted interference by Brussels into the affairs of member-states. On all these grounds I call on colleagues to reject the proposal. ...................... • Video: EbS (European Parliament) ..................................

Kavanaugh Senate vote: Live coverage as Senate Judiciary votes to advance Kavanaugh to full Senate
 
06:07:01
Mere hours after Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, offered their emotional, riveting testimony on Capitol Hill Thursday, Senate Republicans are looking to push Kavanaugh through to confirmation. Following Ford's insistence that she is "100 percent" sure Kavanaugh assaulted her, and Kavanaugh's insistence that he is "innocent," many on the Senate Judiciary Committee seemed to come away with the opinions they espoused before. Most Republicans on the committee stood by Kavanaugh, and most Democrats stood by Ford and want to stop or slow his confirmation. The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote on Kavanaugh at 9:30 a.m. Friday.

Women’s March Exposed for Planning Crimes, Could Face Serious Penalties
 
05:51
The Women’s March, along with several other left-wing groups, colluded to break the law. They paid their supporters to commit crimes, using the cash to get bailed out. Now, it seems what they did could land them in hot water and disband their groups for good. The last few weeks have been chaotic for the left. And, by extension, America. Because of unprecedented temper-tantrums from liberals, the American people had to witness shocking antics. Democrats are currently staging one of the most dishonest and diabolical plots in history against Brett Kavanaugh. We haven’t seen anything this bad since… well, the last dishonest stunt by the Democrats (Russian hoax, anyone?). Before Feinstein revealed her bogus letter, Democrats were staging wild protests and disruptions at Kavanaugh’s hearings. These so-called “leaders” were so pathetic, they had liberal groups try to ruin vitally important meetings that would determine the future of our country. Plenty of evidence suggested the protesters were getting paid to do so. Pictures surfaced of protest organizers handing cash to individuals. Now, we know for a fact that they were paying people to burst into the meetings, only to get arrested. Turns out, these liberal groups broke the law to do so. This violation might result in them losing their non-profit status. Left-wing nonprofit groups that orchestrated disruptions during Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings likely violated IRS rules, which can result in their loss of tax-exempt status, according to an investigation by The Daily Caller News Foundation… These activist organizations — which include Women’s March, the Center for Popular Democracy and Housing Works — provided cash for the post-and-forfeits to protesters who didn’t show up with their own money before they faced arrest for their conduct, CPD Action national field organizer Darius Gordon and Housing Works national advocacy coordinator Paul Davis both said on Monday’s call… A top campaign finance lawyer and conservative activist, Cleta Mitchell, believes the nonprofit groups’ tax-exempt status should be scrutinized for their involvement in advocating and funding criminal activity. “These groups should lose their tax-exempt status because of these actions, which are in violation of established IRS precedent,” Mitchell told TheDCNF. IRS rulings are clear that nonprofit activities must be consistent with the law, conservative campaign finance lawyer Elliot Berke told TheDCNF “If these groups were actually financing illegality, their tax-exempt status most certainly could be in jeopardy,” Berke said. [Source: The Daily Caller] Make no mistake: there’s nothing the left won’t do to undermine Trump and our country. They are actually upset that Trump’s successful. Meaning they are upset that millions of Americans are safe and thriving. This is how sick and deranged they are. These are the same people who rely on Antifa to commit violence against peaceful Americans. They celebrate when rioters burn schools and communities over politics. It’s no wonder they were paying people to disrupt the Kavanaugh hearings. But their deception goes even further than that. They were coaching these people on what to say and giving them scripts. “If you do not have access to your cash we will certainly be able to arrange to get it to you before the action,” Davis said, noting that they had done so at previous anti-Kavanaugh protests. Women’s March senior adviser Winnie Wong previously told CNN that her organization provided the anti-Kavanaugh protesters with “a script where we suggest certain messaging that may resonate more.” Wong told CNN her group raised more than six figures in the first two days of Kavanaugh’s hearings, funds that were used to provide travel, accommodation, legal training and bail for its members who engaged in illegal activity.

A brief history of America under the New World Agenda Presented by: ClassWarFilms http://www.youtube.com/user/ClassWarFilms New world order strategy dictates major global economic, political, and military policies. Nothing happens accidentally. Events are manipulated. At issue is world dominance. America, Israel, and key NATO nations are partnered to achieve it. Wars, economic disruption, financial terrorism, and other upheavals play out in real time. Grand schemes lie behind them. Today's economic crisis wasn't happenstance. It was well planned, willful policy to transfer unprecedented wealth to private hands. Super-rich crooks got richer. Social inequalities deepened. Unmanageable debt levels skyrocketed. "Bailouts" metaphorically mean grand theft. Unknown trillions of dollars, euros and pounds vanished to secret accounts and offshore tax havens. Currencies are being debased. Crisis conditions worsen. At issue is subverting democracy, ending social justice, and consolidating global power in private hands. Political analyst Peter Eyre calls it "a well orchestrated master plan to swindle trillions of taxpayer dollars from so many countries." Pumping them into banks and financial institutions lets them game the system advantageously. "Are you starting to get the picture?" "In a nutshell, the elite 'New World Order' (rulers) got into bed with the banking and financial sectors, who then got into bed with the governments of the world, who then got into bed with senior political figures, who then told us, the taxpayers, that all your money will now have to be used to bail them out or face economic collapse." It's a con, a scam to loot wealth from nations and households. Anyone facing default gets in trouble. Individual borrowers have their assets seized by creditors. Governments have to deal with the loan shark of last resort - the IMF. Its terms require privatizing public enterprises, mass layoffs, deregulation, deep social spending cuts, wage freezes or cuts, unrestricted access for Western corporations, corporate-friendly tax cuts, increases for working people, undermining trade unionism, and enforcing harsh repression against those who balk. In sum, its financial terrorism, New World Order tyranny, waging war on nations and humanity for profit and power.

01:23:56
In their book, Chocolate City, professors Chris Myers Asch and George Derek Musgrove tell the tumultuous, four-century story of race and democracy in our nation's capital. Washington has often served as a national battleground for contentious issues, including slavery, segregation, civil rights, and the drug war. But, the city is also rich in history of local activism as the citizens struggle to make their voices heard in an undemocratic city where residents lack full political rights. A book signing follows the program.
