Continue your boycott! Netflix loses subscribers; shares drop

Christians and Conservatives’ boycott of Netflix is having an effect!

Kaylee Greenlee reports for The Daily Signal that on Wednesday, July 17, 2019, Netflix’s quarterly report shows a loss of 126,000 domestic paid subscribers — its first in eight years — compared with analysts’ expectations for a 352,000 gain. Netflix also missed its own forecast for global subscriber growth by 2.3 million.

Before the release of the shareholders report, Netflix’s shares were up more than 35%. Now, the stock will open at its lowest price since January.

Not coincidentally, the dip in subscriptions came in the same quarter as Netflix’s decision to oppose Georgia’s pro-life heartbeat bill, which was signed into law by Gov. Brian Kemp (R), on May 7. Set to go into effect on Jan. 1, the law will impose restrictions on abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected.

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp

On the day of the bill’s passage, Gov. Kemp said he is standing by his promise to implement the “toughest abortion bill in the country” and that “Georgia is a state that values life. We stand up for those who are unable to speak for themselves.”

Following the bill’s passage, Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos told Variety that Netflix will work with the ACLU and others to “fight it in court,” and that “Should it ever come into effect, we’d rethink our entire investment in Georgia.”

See “Netflix joins fight against Georgia’s abortion law

At the time, Lila Rose, 30, president and founder of the pro-life nonprofit Live Action, tweeted her opposition to Sarandos’ comments:

“Half the country is pro-life. The vast majority want abortion limits. Netflix’s pro-abortion views are regressive and don’t belong in a civilized, loving society. Wake up, Netflix. Many of your employees, customers and America are increasingly pro-life.”

Commenting on the drop in Netflix’s domestic subscription, Rose said: “When Georgia passed the Heartbeat bill, Netflix threatened to stop doing business in the pro-life state. Thousands of pro-life customers expressed their outrage.”

According to MarketWatch, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said no single factor led to the subscription shortfall, but that a pricing increase, the quarterly content slate and seasonality were all factors. Eric Haggstrom, eMarketer forecasting analyst, said Netflix was hurt by the defection of lower-priced subscribers who may be looking to jump to a wave of competing services over the next 6 to 18 months.

Netflix characterized Q2 as a momentary blip and projects a strong third quarter, with 7 million paid subscriber additions worldwide. A shareholders report also tried to put a positive spin, stating that Netflix’s “U.S. paid membership was essentially flat in Q2, [but they] expect it to return to more typical growth in Q3.”

Why wait? Send a big, fat check NOW: America’s richest billionaires say they want to be taxed more

Absolutely NOTHING is stopping these fools from writing a check RIGHT NOW to the US government. Demorats, send your money here.

From NY Post: The richest of the one percent have a message for the 2020 presidential candidates – tax us.

Financier George Soros and heiress Abigail Disney are among the 19 billionaires who published an open letter Monday to Republican and Democratic hopefuls saying that they “support a moderate wealth tax on the fortunes of the richest 1/10 of the richest 1% of Americans — on us.”

”The next dollar of new tax revenue should come from the most financially fortunate, not from middle-income and lower-income Americans,” they wrote.

Along with Soros and Disney, other signers include Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes, Molly Munger, daughter of Berkshire Hathaway vice chairman Charlie Munger, and members of the Pritzker family – along with one anonymous.

”America has a moral, ethical and economic responsibility to tax our wealth more,” they write in the letter.

A wealth tax could raise funds to address the climate change crisis, bolster health care measures, curb income inequality and provide relief for those with student loans.

”The concept of a wealth tax isn’t new: Millions of middle-income Americans already pay a wealth tax each year in the form of property taxes on their primary form of wealth — their home,” the letter says. “The kind of moderate tax on the richest 1/10 of 1% that we support just asks us to pay a small wealth tax on the primary source of our wealth as well.”

The letter noted that a number of Democratic candidates – Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke and Rep. Tim Ryan – support the idea.

Fake Hate Crime: Chicago police releases video of Jussie Smollett in prop noose

Jussie Smollett, 36, a black “gay” actor best known for the Fox TV show Empire, claims to be a victim of a vicious racist-homophobic hate-crime.

He told Chicago police that on January 29, 2019, at around 1:30 a.m., he was accosted by two men in downtown Chicago who shouted racist and homophobic slurs, beat him up, poured bleach on him, wrapped a noose around his neck, and warned him that “This is MAGA country!”– a reference to President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan.

But Smollett’s story completely fell apart: Not only had he himself purchased the “lynching” rope wrapped around his neck, Smollett paid $3500 to two Nigerian brothers, Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo, who are also black, to stage the fake racist-homophobic attack on him. (See my post “Fake Hate Crime: Hollyweirdo Jussie Smollett arrested“)

Chicago police arrested Smollett and a Grand Jury charged him with 16 felony counts for lying to police and staging a fake crime-crime. On March 26, 2019, however, the corrupt Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx dropped all charges, in exchange for community service and forfeiture of Smollett’s $10,000 bond. Cook County Judge Steven Watkins even sealed the case file.

Foxx has connections to the Obamas and George Soros: in 2016, Soros donated $408,000 to a Foxx super PAC.

After all charges against him were dropped, Smollett has the chutzpah to insist that he really is a victim of hate crime and that the manifestly fake “attack” really happened. (See my post “No justice: Chicago prosecutors drop all charges against fake hate-crime actor Jussie Smollett”)

But others in the Chicago justice system are fighting back.

(1) Special Prosecutor

Former Illinois appellate court judge Sheila O’Brien submitted a petition to Cook County Judge Michael Toomin, requesting a special prosecutor to examine Foxx’s handling of the Smollett case. Last Friday, June 21, Judge Toomin did just that by ordering a special prosecutor, which means Smollett could be criminally charged a second time. (The Federalist Papers)

Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi made this statement on Twitter:

“We stand firmly behind the work of detectives in investigating the fabricated incident reported by Jussie Smollett & #ChicagoPolice will fully cooperate with the court appointed special prosecutor.”

(2) Video of Smollett with fake noose

Yesterday, in response to an open records request from the media, Chicago PD released a trove of investigative files and 70 hours of video related to Smollett’s fake hate-crime.

The videos include body-camera footage of police arriving at Smollett’s home on January 29, 2019, after the staged “attack,” and found the actor still with the prop “noose” around his neck. CBS Chicago reporter Megan Hickey tweeted a video of police asking Smollett to remove the prop “noose” — from which I had this GIF made.

Approaching Event Horizon

Impending Action on the Swamp


https://www.brighteon.com/6029966694001

I don’t often give ear these days to Alex Jones, but this time I am listening. Why am I listening? Because I also noticed that Hillary has emerged again in fighting mode after a long period in hiding. Alex may have the correct explanation. 

Hillary has been very hard to find for a while, but has now come out with an outrageous(er) accusation against President Trump. She is now openly calling for criminal prosecution of the President. In the mean time, Trump has been flipping one Deep State operative after another to move all his forces into place for an all-out take-down of the criminals who have been abusing the nation for a long time.

Keep our President and his close circle in prayer, especially against assassination attempts. And let us keep our hearts in the right place by remembering this key scripture:

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14

Based on this word, our victory does not come by superior force of arms, or by any one “Fearless Leader,” but by God’s people (however few or many) getting right with God. It is a direct proposition that when we do this, He will do that.

Pope Francis donates $½ million to aid migrant invaders ‘stranded’ in Mexico

Peter’s Pence (“Alms of St Peter” in Latin) are donations or payments made directly to the Vatican.

The collection for Peter’s Pence is taken each year on the Sunday closest to June 29, the Solemnity of the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul in the liturgical calendar. As of 2012, the United States has donated the largest amounts, giving some 28% of the total. U.S. donations totaled $75.8 million in 2008, $82.5 million in 2009, $67.7 million in 2010 and $69.7 million in 2011.

Catholics who donate to Peter’s Pence should know that this is what Pope Francis is doing with your money.

Pope Francis conceals the cross to not offend Jewish rabbis

Mexico News Daily reports that the Vatican said in a statement on April 27, 2019, that Pope Francis has donated half a million dollars from the Peter’s Pence fund to assist migrants “stranded in” Mexico by providing them with housing, food and basic necessities.

The “migrants” are mainly from Central America (Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala), who continue in hundreds of thousands to march toward the US-Mexico border in “caravans,” intent on entering the United States.

Mexico’s Interior Secretary Olga Sánchez said that in just the first three months of 2019, some 300,000 “migrants” had traveled through Mexico en route to the United States.

This is what the Peter’s Pence website says:

In recent months, thousands of migrants have arrived in Mexico, having travelled more than 4,000 kilometres on foot and with makeshift vehicles from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. Men and women, often with young children, flee poverty and violence, hoping for a better future in the United States. However, the US border remains closed to them.

In 2018, six migrant caravans entered Mexico, for a total of 75,000 people; the arrival of other groups was announced. All these people were stranded, unable to enter the United States, without a home or livelihood. The Catholic Church hosts thousands of them in the hotels within dioceses or religious congregations, providing basic necessities, from housing to clothing.

Media coverage of this emergency has been decreasing and as a result, aid to migrants by the government and private individuals has also decreased.

In this context, Pope Francis donated US $500,000 to assist migrants in Mexico. This amount will be distributed among 27 projects in 16 dioceses and among Mexican religious congregations that have asked for help in order to continue providing housing, food and basic necessities to these our brothers and sisters.

Of these projects, 13 have already been approved for the dioceses of Cuautitlán, Nogales (2), Mazatlán, Querétaro, San Andrés Tuxtla, Nuevo Laredo (2) and Tijuana; as well as for the Scalabrinians, the congregation of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary and the Josefinas Sisters. Another 14 projects are being evaluated. A regulated and transparent use of the resources, which must be accounted for, is required before the aid is assigned.

Thanks to these projects, and thanks to Christian charity and solidarity, the Mexican Bishops hope to be able to continue helping our migrant brothers and sisters.

A reader wrote this comment on California Catholic Daily:

Pope Francis has no authority to make such payments and guarantees. He is acting as an ally of George Soros and other pagan globalist interests. These people [migrants] are taken care of, except for those who are selected as media “actors” to give false testimony about their conditions. How much more obvious can it be that these “caravans” are political events, meant to show that the USA cannot have its own border…. Such terrorism to our own country must be opposed….

That reader/commenter had better watch out because according to Pope Francis, those who always accuse the Church are “relatives of the devil”.

This year, the Peter’s Pence collection will be on June 23. If you’re Catholic, make sure you abstain from donating because your funds will be used to aid and abet the invasion of America.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was appointed – not elected

AOC’s arrogance implies an invisible hand

This creature came from nowhere and speaks arrogantly of being the new boss in the Democrat Party, telling even Joe Lieberman that his time is past. Where does her cockiness come from? The following video will start to unmask AOC and her invisible backers.

Don’t look at her stupidity and take her as being inconsequential. That is the mistake America made with another blank slate named Obama.

The Marxism this creature is forcing into the American system is as deadly as a rattlesnake. We need to unmask her and her backers at every opportunity. We need to put a spotlight on her. Evil hates light because light reveals the truth.

Let the unmasking begin!

We are not just fighting Democrat candidates

The candidates are sufficiently creepy to hold our attention…

But there are other factors we need to deal with beyond the wild-eyed socialists and demagogs of the DNC.

These factors are the voting blocks the Demonrats rely on. The constituencies the Demonrats need most are as follows:

These voting blocks are admittedly overlapping. They represent specific angles of attack on the integrity of the vote. If they are allowed to thrive, all confidence among voters will die, leading to people seeking other means of being heard, including (God forbid) violence.

The one group listed above that remains legal is the “Snowflake Block.” This group, although legal, is so misinformed and indoctrinated that they are as dangerous as the others, even the vaunted “Dead Vote.”

And the “Snowflakes” overlap yet another group:

The Llama Vote differs from the Snowflakes in age.

While the Snowflakes are almost by definition Millennials, the Llamas can be Liberals of any age, but usually over the age of 40. Llamas cannot be reasoned with. They can hear or see any compelling argument in favor of common sense, and remain unmoved from their Leftist dogma.

Known by their glassy cock-eyed stare, they are best avoided. They rarely pose a physical threat. The danger they represent to a conservative is to be drawn into a needless waste of time and energy.

We can safely ignore Llamas

They will remain content, packing heavy loads of contraband along Andean mountain trails, and peacefully avoiding encounters with common sense. (Greater concentrations of Llamas can be found in Brattleboro Vermont, Portland Maine, and Key West Florida.)  Generally older and less given to violence, they are likewise largely less influential.

This has been a public service announcement for conservatives.

Financial Times names George Soros ‘Person of the Year’ for promoting globalism, elitism and open borders

Founded in 1888, Financial Times (FT) is an international daily newspaper, headquartered in London, with a special emphasis on business and economic news. In 2015, Acquired in 2015 by Nikkei Inc. for £844m ($1.32 billion), FT is considered the most important business read, reaching 36% of the business-financial population, 11% more than its main rival, The Wall Street Journal (WSJ).

Financial Times has just named George Soros “Person of the Year” — the ever-scheming financier who made his billionaire fortune in the wholly unproductive currency-speculation and hedge funds, and who, through his foundations, foments and funds every Leftist, western civilization-destroying machination and movement, from racial protests and the “migrant caravan” invasion of America, to Europe’s open-border policy for Muslim “migrants” and “refugees”. See:

In the words of the Financial Times, Soros is Person of the Year because he fights the “extreme right” “forces of nationalism and populism,” which is FT‘s way of commending him for championing the left, globalism and elitism.

FT also stoops low by flinging the all-purpose “anti-Semitic” label at critics of Soros, which effectively shields him from every and all criticism.

Below are excerpts from Roula Khalaf’s nauseatingly fawning article, “FT Person of the Year: George Soros,” Financial Times, Dec. 19, 2018:

For a man facing daily attacks for his activism and liberal vision of the world, George Soros was in a curiously buoyant mood on a sunswept afternoon in Marrakesh. He had just visited South Africa, home to his first philanthropic foray in the late 1970s, when he funded black students under apartheid. This time he learnt that Soros-backed investigative media and civil society groups had helped thwart an allegedly corrupt nuclear power plant contract with Russia.

“It was a tremendous boost to reinforce my belief that we are doing something right,” says Mr Soros. “We haven’t stopped having a beneficial influence.”

Influence has come at a painfully high cost for the 88-year-old father of the hedge fund industry and one of the world’s most prominent philanthropists. From his native Hungary to his adopted America, the forces of nationalism and populism are battering the liberal democratic order he has tirelessly supported. The man once described as the only individual with a foreign policy must contend with the rise of strongmen across the globe — and a vicious backlash designed to delegitimise him.

The Financial Times’s choice of Person of the Year is usually a reflection of their achievements. In the case of Mr Soros this year, his selection is also about the values he represents.

He is the standard bearer of liberal democracy and open society. These are the ideas which triumphed in the cold war. Today, they are under siege from all sides, from Vladimir Putin’s Russia to Donald Trump’s America.

For more than three decades, Mr Soros has used philanthropy to battle against authoritarianism, racism and intolerance. Through his long commitment to openness, media freedom and human rights, he has attracted the wrath of authoritarian regimes and, increasingly, the national populists who continue to gain ground, particularly in Europe….

There are so many anti-Semitic conspiracy theories targeting Mr Soros that it is difficult to keep count. Hardly a day goes by without a statement, a tweet or an image depicting him as a master manipulator of global politics.

The venom, long concealed among extreme right networks, has leaked into the mainstream: Mr Trump, who resents Mr Soros’ support for the Democrats, has peddled allegations that he funded the caravan of central American migrants, claims that have appeared to have partly inspired the October attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Earlier that month, Mr Soros was the first in a series of Trump critics targeted with an explosive device sent to his suburban New York home. “I have been painted as the devil. The fact that extremists are motivated by false conspiracy theories about me to kill hurts me tremendously,” says Mr Soros. […]

In his twilight years, Mr Soros is looking beyond his formidable legacy. Having originally planned that his foundation would last his lifetime, he completed the transfer last year of $18bn from his family office to the Open Society Foundations. That reduced his fortune to $8bn, according to Forbes magazine, but ensured that his activism would take on a life of its own. And he has found a successor in philanthropy: his son, Alexander. “We fight for principles, we fight irrespective of the results, win or lose,” he says. And, almost as an afterthought, he says: “I don’t like to lose so much.”

About Soros’ son and heir, Alexander, see “George Soros’ son, Alex, is a ‘spirit cooker’?“.

By the way, the “explosive device” sent to Soros’ suburban New York home was a false flag. See “How we know package bombs sent to Democrats are false flags” and “Cesar Sayoc, package bomber: The pieces that don’t fit”.

What happened to Cesar Sayoc, about whom we’ve heard nothing since his supposed arrest?

Crocodile tears: Hillary Clinton & John Kerry bemoan Europe is crushed by migrants

The Left really are a breed apart in their hypocricy and malevolence.

First, they promote mass “immigration” of Muslims and other Third Worlders into Europe and America.

Then, when the predictable social problems ensue, they wring their hands in distraught and cry crocodile tears.

Recall that George Soros, whose foundations actively facilitate migrants and “refugees”, wept crocodile tears over Europe being on the verge of collapse. Then we have European Jewish intellectuals, who had pushed for Muslim immigration into Europe, now urging Jews to leave Europe.

Now, two of the biggest promoters of mass immigration are making tsk-tsk noises about Europe being “crushed” and “roiling” from “migration”.

 Hillary Clinton

In an interview with The Guardian, Hillary lectured to European leaders that they must “get a handle on migration” that is “roiling the body politics” because migration “is what lit the flame” of “the bread and circuses” of rightwing populism that poses “a serious threat to our freedom and our democratic institutions.”

She said back-handedly that although “I admire the very generous and compassionate approaches that were taken particularly by leaders like Angela Merkel, but I think it is fair to say Europe has done its part, and must send a very clear message – ‘we are not going to be able to continue provide refuge and support’ – because if we don’t deal with the migration issue it will continue to roil the body politic.”

John Kerry

John Kerry, who took over from Hillary as Obama’s secretary of state, also lamented to The Guardian: “Look at Europe! Europe’s already crushed under this transformation that’s taken place because of immigration.”

Kerry also wrung his hands about Donald Trump dismantling the Paris climate agreement and about the gross inequality in America where “Fifty-one per cent of the income of America going to 1% of Americans.”

But, as The Guardian points out, Kerry and his second wife, Teresa Heinz, themselves are exalted members of the top 1%:

According to a 2015 New Yorker profile, between them they own at least six properties, including a 23-room mansion in Georgetown, Washington DC, and a 90-acre farm outside Pittburgh in Pennsylvania, as well as a 23-metre (76ft), $7m (£5.4m) sailboat called Isabel. “We’ve got to make America fair again. You gotta make things work for working folks so they can pay their bills and send their kids to school, reach the brass ring, retire in dignity, have healthcare – the priorities are pretty clear, in my judgment. We need infrastructure. Desperately. We need to start rebuilding America,” he says.
