This meeting of CubaMark's fellow socialist travelers plays like parody. It almost made me sorry for these poor SOBs whose normal lives have been ruined by fealty to leftist dogma...

But then you realize, this is what they want to be forced onto YOU!

So good of that Professor to stick around in such a toxic capitalist country to teach people the errors of their ways.

I wonder if he accepts pay raises and the luxuries that come with being a tenured professor or if he kept his pay at the base level for a new professor.

Well, this is interestin'!

Michael Yon: A Google Insider, Who I'm Calling a "Google Snowden," Is Set to Reveal The Extent of China's Penetration of Google, and Google's Algorithmic Interventions to Convince America That Patriotism Towards The United States is Racist and Evil

Quote:
Well that got my attention.
Achtung! Pay attention: tonight I talked for about an hour with a "Google Snowden" who will soon go public. A deep insider.

Fascinating stuff. I cannot say much now other than pay attention to what is coming out starting in a week or so from now.

Source said many interesting things about how Chinese are flooding into tech companies like Google, and some of the incredible techniques they can use to brainwash or at least mislead millions of people.

Take this as an example that I am making up based on our conversation. Again, I am making this up but it is based on our conversation:

A politician tweets saying we must protect our national interests.

Google, or whoever, immediately promotes all stories that translates, "must protect our national interests," to "nationalism," and then in almost real time rewrites the meaning of "nationalism" to include traits such as xenophobic, racist, and references Nazis as nationalists.

This happens so quickly and so comprehensively that most people never will notice that in the 30 seconds the curtain was closed, Google (or whoever) rewrote part of the dictionary, and history.

To state this more clearly: they can basically rewrite what you say, write, sing, wear, or hand gesture -- name it -- and they can rewrite that faster than we can make popcorn.

They can do this anonymously saying the algorithm is doing it when in reality they write the rules that make the rules.
I await the reveal.

Let's talk Prog entertainment s'more.

Bloomberg: Star Wars Is Struggling to Win Over the Next Generation of Kids

Quote:
lolgf Disney.
It's hard to say this, as someone who grew up pretending to be Han Solo battling Darth Vader and his stormtroopers to rescue Princess Leia. But it must be said: Kids might not be into Star Wars anymore.

Walt Disney Co.'s underwhelming theme-park attendance last quarter was the latest sign that the intergalactic saga isn't resonating for younger generations ...

Instead, some of the franchise’s most dedicated fans have been sniping at the way Disney has handled their favorite characters from the old movies. And the new trilogy’s heroes, like Rey and Poe Dameron, just haven't inspired the same fervor among young people, with toy sales falling flat around each new installment.
A lot of people in the "Fandom Menace" -- Star Wars fans turned intense Star Wars critics -- are noting with some joy that no one is discussing Star Wars any more.
Forbes: The Beginning of the End for Netflix?

Quote:
No one wants to pay for Obama TV anymore?
It's official... it's the beginning of the end for Netflix (NFLX).

As you may have heard, the online video company made a troubling announcement...

This quarter, for the first time ever, it lost American subscribers. Hundreds of thousands of them.

The stock plunged more than 11% on the news.
This guy speculates that Netflix could lose as much as 70% of its stock valuation.
Bold mine.



Disney Proves There's Still Magic and Creativity in Hollywood, Announcing Ambitious Project Based on Entirely Original Idea

They're rebooting Home Alone.

But they do have some other innovative ideas -- like rebooting other properties, some of which are only four years old.


Oh, and this little gem:

Hollywood Film Depicts Trump Supporters Being Hunted for Sport by Liberals

Quote:
In the past few days we’ve been hearing a lot about how Donald Trump’s rhetoric is apparently to blame for the El Paso shooting, yet Hollywood apparently lacked the foresight to think that a movie promoting violence against “deplorables” might be in bad taste until after the shootings in El Paso and Dayton, as only now is Universal rethinking their promotional strategy for the film.
"Did anyone see what our ratf**ker-in-chief just did?" one character asks early in the screenplay for The Hunt, a Universal Pictures thriller set to open Sept. 27. Another responds: "At least The Hunt's coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables."

In the aftermath of mass shootings within days of one another that shocked and traumatized the nation, Universal is re-evaluating its strategy for the certain-to-be-controversial satire. The violent, R-rated film from producer Jason Blum's Blumhouse follows a dozen MAGA types who wake up in a clearing and realize they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals.
Links' bold.

But we're not fomenting violence. Uh-ung.

Bring it...

Further on the fallout from Deplorables cleaning up a Prog $h!thole.

Trump Supporters Volunteer Their Time and Clean Up Trash-Filled, Rat-Infested Baltimore;
Baltimore Media and Democrats Very, Very Angry That They Cleaned Up Their Shithole


Quote:
Of course.

Yesterday Jazz wrote about the Baltimore cleanup effort put together by Trump supporter Scott Presler. After the public spat between Trump and Rep. Elijah Cummings, Pressler wanted to genuinely do something positive. So he gathered somewhere between 200-300 people to clean up trash, cut lawns, and make things look better. He posted before and after photos of the effort on Twitter. That led to a snarky editorial for the Baltimore Sun which veered between admitting the cleanup was needed and blaming Pressler for sending the wrong message.
It made for good photos, compelling videos and catchy Twitter hashtags. A group of conservatives rolled their pickup trucks into one of West Baltimore’s most impoverished neighborhoods Monday for a cleanup day. Loaded down with trash bags and shovels, they cleared alleyways of old tires, food containers, paper and other debris. They pulled up weeds and cut away overgrown grass. The group posted before and after pictures on social media showing their progress…

Whatever he says his motives were, Mr. Presler's presence in Baltimore reinforces the tired image of our failing urban cores. That the poor people in this dilapidated city can’t take care of their own neighborhoods and all the public officials around them have failed as well. The bureaucratic, all-talk Democrats strike again. If a crowd of volunteers could clean up 12 tons of trash in 12 hours, how incompetent and helpless must Baltimoreans be if they can't manage it in decades, right?
Um... right, actually. Why can't you?

Further on the Big Apple $15/hr minimum wage folly.

New York City businesses struggle after minimum wage increase

Quote:
More than six months after the $15 minimum wage went into effect in New York City, business leaders and owners say the increased labor costs have forced them to cut staff, eliminate work shifts and raise prices.

Many business owners said these changes were unintended consequences of the new minimum wage, which took effect at the beginning of the year.

Susannah Koteen, owner of Lido Restaurant in Harlem, said she worries about the impact raising wages could have on her restaurant, where she employs nearly 40 people. She hasn’t had to lay off anyone, but the increase has forced her to cut back on shifts and be more stringent about overtime. She said she changes her menu offerings seasonally and raises prices more often since the wage boost.
These so-called "unintended consequences" were as plain as the nose on their face, if they'd just paid attention.

Study: Transgender Male Athletes Keep Physical Advantages Even After Female Hormone Injections

Quote:
Recently, the Journal of Medical Ethics published a study that directly counters an anti-science narrative that liberal elites have been pushing for years: that transgender men (sometimes called “transwomen”) and biological women are exactly the same.

This study concluded that transgender athletes born male have an “intolerable,” or overwhelming, advantage over biological women in athletic competition. The paper stated healthy male test subjects “did not lose significant muscle mass (or power)” when their testosterone levels were suppressed below the International Olympic Committee guidelines for transgender athletes of 10nmol/L.

Further, it found these biological males could retain their muscle mass through training and that because of muscle memory, their mass and strength could be “rebuilt” through training. It also found that giving opposite-sex hormones to transgender people post-puberty did not alter the athletic-enhancing effects of testosterone on the male body.

They Will Still Hate You Even If You Disarm

Quote:
It was quite a surprise to find out that we Trump voters were personally responsible for the savage murder sprees of a creep who dug single-payer and a satanist fan of Big Chief Warren. The El Paso scumbag decided he wanted to murder Hispanics because migration would somehow destroy the environment, which falls right in line with classical progressive eugenics balderdash. The Democrat from Dayton was full-on #Resistance. But apparently we conservatives were to blame for their actions because we refuse to give up our rights.
More:

Quote:
Now, those links I just outlined between these idiots’ political beliefs and liberals should not act to place the moral blame for their vile deeds upon liberals, but they must because that’s apparently the new rule. It’s a stupid rule and I think we should go back to the old rule - the person responsible for the crime he commits is the criminal - but since the new rule is in effect then the liberals can enjoy it like a suppository.
Bold mine.

With pleasure...

Further:

Quote:
Weird how the liberal solution to every problem is always to make you less free.
Bold mine.

Finally:

Quote:
It would be nice to have libs and their media goons not sliming us all the time with manifest falsehoods. It would also be nice to have a pet unicorn named Chet always ready to make a run to the liquor store to pick up a sixer of Dos Equis and some Doritos. Neither one is going to happen, and you can’t change that by giving in. No matter how much you abase yourself it will never be enough for them to not hate you.
Bold also mine...
