In The What Do You Think Will Happen Department by Mitch Santell
Kevin Spacey appeared in court today in regards to a Sexual Assault charge.
The outcome of Kevin Spacey’s trial I believe will play a significant role in how Hollywood deals with the power of celebrities.
From my perspective as a documentary filmmaker, producer of radio and music, I sincerely hope that things go Kevin’s way. Mr. Spacey knows how “Dog Eat Dog ” Hollywood is. There is so much about Kevin Spacey’s situation that reminds me of what happened to Charlie Chaplin during the making of the film, “The Gold Rush.”
A top Democrat Congresswoman has announced her plan to convert all American businesses and individuals away from low-cost energy production (natural gas, etc.) to high-cost “green” energy sources. The new government spending will require a tax rate of 70%, which means you (or your employer) will be taking home 30% of what they work for. Let’s look at the consequences of this plan.
In The Are You Kidding Me Department by Mitch Santell
From those I met while living in New Zealand, one thing was clear, I was told to never go to Sweden.
The Swedish Culture is a huge mess right now.
Ocasio-Cortez wants America to be just like Sweden, and oh, she wants us out of our cars in 12 years. She must love Agenda 21 now in full swing here in California.
What makes Sweden so exceptionally dangerous for women? Its militant feminism is embedded in its political culture and its educational system. Sweden has boasted of a “feminist foreign policy”, 61% of Swedes in one survey identified as feminists and hold the strongest views on “gender equality” of any Europeans. Swedes are the most likely to believe that it’s okay for men to cry. Only 11% believe that women should take care of the home and only 10% believe that it’s a man’s job to support his family
A local branch of the Left Party in Sweden even demanded that men urinate while sitting down.
And then there are the Czechs, just 13% identify as feminists, 77% think that a woman’s place is in the home, yet the sexual assault rate is 7.79 per 100,000, a tiny fraction of feminist Sweden.
If the real issues were feminism and toxic masculinity, if sufficient educational indoctrination about the evils of masculinity is needed to “teach men not to rape”, women should be safest in Sweden.
So what went wrong?
Rape statistics also show that Sweden is one of the most unsafe countries in the Western world for women. Although these stats can be debated, an increase in gang rapes does coincide with the creation of the liberal, multicultural feminist state.
Female genital mutilation is a fairly new occurrence in Sweden. School nurses reported last year that all 30 girls in a class in Norrköping had been genitally mutilated. Although this has not led to a debate on women’s rights, Sara Johnsdotter, a social anthropologist from the university of Malmö, argues that the word itself is stigmatizes women and should be exchanged to the more including “circumcision”.
Shootings in the country have become so common that they don’t make top headlines anymore, unless they are spectacular or lead to fatalities. News of attacks are quickly replaced with headlines about sports events and celebrities, as readers have become desensitized to the violence. A generation ago, bombings against the police and riots were extremely rare events. Today, reading about such incidents is considered part of daily life.
It’s probably the most depressing Christmas story of 2018.
They are one of the most important animals in the already fragile Arctic ecosystem, the magnificent reindeer, or caribou and according to a new report is the latest animal to decline.
According to a report by NOAA, Despite an increase of vegetation available for grazing, herd populations of caribou and wild reindeer across the Arctic tundra have declined by nearly 50% over the last two decades.
The populations of reindeer, a.k.a. caribou, near the North Pole, has been declining dramatically in recent years.
Since the mid-1990s, the size of reindeer and caribou herds has declined by 56 per cent.
That’s an incredible drop from an estimated 4.7 million animals to 2.1 million, a loss of 2.6 million.
A lightning strike in Norway has killed more than 300 reindeer, according to reports from local media. A spokesman for the Norwegian Nature Inspectorate (NNI) told NTB, the Norwegian News Agency, that 323 reindeer were found dead on Friday in an area near Hardangervidda, in the southern part of the country. In a press release published Sunday, the Norwegian Environment Agency said that 70 of the dead reindeer were calves. Officials believe that the animals were killed by lightning during a heavy thunderstorm, marking what could be the deadliest lightning strike in history.
“We’ve heard about animals being struck by lightning and killed, but I don’t remember hearing about lightning killing animals on this scale before,” NNI spokesman Knut Nylend tells NTB. “We don’t know if it was one or more lighting strike; that would only be speculation.”
One of my hero’s Jordan Peterson, who is an articulate, kind man who doesn’t mince words is fighting to stay online. Currently Mr. Peterson is on YouTube with his own channel and over 1.6 Million+ Subscribers. Dave Rubin and Jordan Peterson are like so many that rely on YouTube to get their message out. With censorship on the rise and with most independent media sources attempting to not have their channel deleted, Mr.Peterson has to find a new way to receive contributions.
Jordan Peterson, a Canadian professor who frequently rails against political correctness on YouTube, says that he’s planning to launch an alternative to crowdfunding platform Patreon before Christmas.
The announcement comes as Patreon has been losing users and patrons following the banning of a high-profile YouTuber belonging to the “Intellectual Dark Web.”
Peterson and those in his circle have seen subscriber losses between 10% and 20%.
Commentary That You Can’t Make Up by Mitch Santell
This introduction by author Dan Bogino will blow your mind and it will openly disclose how Obama and his entire administration used the Deep State to take out President Donald J. Trump, but failed miserably.
Hey, for you filmmakers out there, you can’t make this stuff up. Why? Answer: Life imitates art. This was plan A, the main plan but it failed. The audio is below.
This audio is 8 Minutes and 28 Seconds and worth your time to listen too!
DAN BONGINO: Some of you may have seen me on Fox this morning, and in fact one of the ladies I was just talking to said well, where did you do that from? I said, I just live about 20 miles north, I have a studio in my house. It’s just a TV in the background. It’s a TV, it’s actually a video of what we took down in Palm Beach, we’re just watching a movie in the background. It’s in my office. If you listen real close on Fox sometimes for hits you’ll hear some like gargling in the background, that’s usually my 6 year old running around outside. No, I’m serious. Yeah, that’s my office and it’s a really small office. I don’t live like liberals in a 5,000 square foot mansion. So once in a blue moon you can hear my kids running around. So that happened. I made it down here. Sorry I didn’t tell everybody I was here. When we went to the front desk I got caught up in a conversation with Sebastian Gorka and Louie Gohmert and we’re all Chatty Cathies so that just went on forever, I forgot to tell everyone that I actually showed up. So I am here, we made it, it’s great. Thanks to everyone who’ve already bought the book in advance, I really appreciate it.
That’s what I want to talk about today, folks, because it’s been about a year and a half now of my life. I’ve written four books but this one by far was the most tedious to put together. They had two co-authors actually help me out. And the reason I wrote the book, this whole spine scandal, this debacle, this atrocious disgrace of a scandal that happened to our president. You know how many, are there a lot of cops, federal agents in the room? Anyone have experience in law enforcement? Yeah, a couple raised their hand. If I’m wrong, call me out on this, but when I was a cop and then a Secret Service agent if you have even an ounce of empathy for human beings, which most of you in this room have more than an ounce, you have a whole lot, you’ll arrest a lot of bad people for a lot of really bad things.
But one of the things that impacted me so deeply in my life, I’m not going to say the guy’s name for obvious reasons, let’s call him john Doe. We hit a door at about 6:00 on the morning to arrest this guy on a credit card fraud scheme, and it was ugly. I mean it had been hundreds of thousands of dollars. When you’re a federal agent you don’t get to arrest people for like $5.00 petty crimes or anything like that, they’ll throw you right out of there. It was a serious crime. We arrested the guy and I remember after working on this case for 6 months it was a sense of accomplishment, tempered immediately by this awful feeling in my gut. It’s 7:00 in the morning, you arrest him and you don’t anticipate the human side of it. But what happened, the guy’s young kids ran out. That’s their dad. He actually wasn’t the worst guy in the world, he was actually a good father to his kids. And they’re watching their father in handcuffs, and the wife is crying. Their life is over.
We all must admit that we are living in extraordinary and transitional times. This is something I never thought I would see in my lifetime. What is it? The Border between the USA and Mexico Shut down.
Migrants approaching the U.S. border from Mexico were enveloped with tear gas Sunday after a few tried to breach the fence separating the two countries, while the U.S. halted all border traffic on Sunday between Tijuana, Mexico and San Diego.
U.S. agents shot the gas, according to an Associated Press reporter on the scene. Children were screaming and coughing in the mayhem.
Honduran migrant Ana Zuniga, 23, said she saw migrants open a small hole in concertina wire at a gap on the Mexican side of a levee, at which point U.S. agents fired tear gas at them.
“We ran, but when you run the gas asphyxiates you more,” she told the AP while cradling her 3-year-old daughter Valery in her arms.
Mexico’s Milenio TV also showed images of several migrants at the border trying to jump over the fence. A few yards away on the U.S. side, shoppers streamed in and out of an outlet mall.
