There have been protests – sometimes descending into civil disorder – in scores of US cities since May, following the death of an unarmed black man, George Floyd, in police custody in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Meanwhile, gun violence has spiked in cities including New York City, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Chicago and Milwaukee.
The Left attempted many ruses to get Trump out of office before he could interrupt their plans for demographic replacement of heritage Americans and possibly, installation of a China-friendly vassal state. These excuses — Stormy Daniels, RussiaGate, emoluments, insanity, grab-em-by-the-pussy, earning money from hotels — have all collapsed, so all that remains is what we might call the “LA Riots” agenda, namely rioting, burning, looting, killing, vandalizing, and assaulting until white America cries “uncle” and just writes a check for whatever the rioters want. Trump has stood strong against this but he realizes that the Left has seen that their first gambit has not worked, and so they want to try a second one, namely creating enough social chaos to offset any economic gains caused by Trump getting the country out of the coronavirus shutdown. The Left wants to crash the economy to pop Trump out of the presidency before he can shutdown the Leftist endgame. For this reason, he is sending federal agents to round up some Antifa and, hopefully, track the people who are funding them for some RICO suits.
The government expects it will trade with Europe on World Trade Organisation terms when the transition period ends, the report added.
Britain left the EU on Jan. 31 and its relationship with the bloc is now governed by a transition arrangement that keeps previous rules in place while the two sides negotiate new terms.
Negotiators remain deadlocked on fishing rights, the deal’s governance, the European Court of Justice’s role and so-called level playing field guarantees, the newspaper reported.
You cannot negotiate with Leftists; their idea of compromise is to hold out until you agree what they want, and to threaten to damage things that you want preserved. The right approach requires charging ahead and making everything work without Leftists so that they become increasinly irrelevant, as a prelude to exiling them all to Venezuela and sending postcards only on Christmas.
A poll conducted by DER SPIEGEL found that eight of the 100 most populous German cities have given their go-ahead for calls to prayer to be practiced in the Muslim religious communities there. Even in some smaller communities like Stolberg and Eschweiler near Aachen, in western Germany, or the city of Neumünster in Schleswig-Holstein, “allahu-akbar” can be heard echoing over the roofs.
In theory, at least, the adhan should be protected religious freedom, like the ringing of church bells, but this fundamental right that can also be restricted, for noise protection, for example.
The thorniest question revolves around so-called negative freedom of religion, meaning the right not to be disturbed by any religion. Many people are annoyed enough by the ringing of church bells. But the muezzin’s proclamations of faith go a step further. In Arabic, these include sayings like “God is great,” or “I bear witness that Muhammed is the messenger of Allah” or “There is no God but Allah.”
Pluralism reveals that it is madness. You now have competing religious signals irritating those who want to be involved with none of it. Recognizing that, the counter-reaction seems to be rising as Germany bans some forms of Muslim attire:
The government of the western German state of Baden-Württemberg agreed on Tuesday to ban full-face coverings, often known as burqa or niqab, in schools.
The new rule comes as the topic of Muslim face coverings has been hotly debated in Germany and follows a ruling by a court in Hamburg that reversed that city’s own ban.
Germany finds itself in the diversity Pareto trap: to grant rights to any one group injures another. For this reason, traditional societies had a strong but fair rule, namely that only ethnic members who were also good participants in mind and spirit were allowed in the society. Germany for (only) (ethnic) Germans.
Elsewhere in the world, we see how important these markers of religion can be, sensu Burkhas, All ‘Markers of Muslimness’ Targeted, Report Details Women’s Plight in Delhi Riots:
A woman recounted, “So many sisters told me even when they were running, their burkhas were taken off, their hijabs were pulled off. Me, my children and many other people hid on my terrace.”
Another woman said, “They had lathis, swords, they kept chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’ and “Mullon ko Maaron (Kill the Muslims!).”
This is war and we are all in uniform, even if we intend not to be.
Everywhere diversity goes, race war, genocide, and civilization collapse follow.
The Media Research Center used a virtual private network in order to use the most generic version of Google possible in confirming this phenomenon.
Other news sites, like Newsweek, The Daily Beast, The Washington Post, HuffPost, and Teen Vogue, show up as the very first result in a Google Search. While NewsBusters appears in the Google News search results, the website is still not showing up organically. The website does also not appear on the second or third page of organic results.
The Media Research Center, the parent organization for NewsBusters, MRCTV, and CNSNews.com is also not listed on organic search results for Google. However, on Bing, Yahoo, and DuckDuckGo, the websites are the first results to show up.
The Sauron of Silicon Valley wants the Left to win this election. Perhaps their masters in China have demanded the triumph of those who will continue the downward slide into oblivion of the American empire, and are most displeased at the rise of Donald Trump. Another Leftist win will give them a chance to permanently alter the composition of the American electorate, ensuring that third world votes favor the Left every time.
Since the protests started at the end of May, a small section of downtown Portland has been transformed into a kind of pop-up city surrounding the Justice Center and the federal courthouse. In a park across the street, tents have sprung up to house a makeshift pharmacy filled with emergency kits, a pantry where people can get free snacks and water, a secondhand clothing store and free outdoor catering now known as Riot Ribs.
For the proles who should be in the fields picking turnips but instead hire minorities to do this work for them, these protests are a chance to be important. This is like a rock concert or New Years Eve party where every prole gets a moment to attention whore and stand out there screaming, drawing attention to themselves for their altruism, hoping to gain the favor of the crowd and thus their fifteen minutes of fame. People with a lack of direction are naturally drawn to big ideas like altruism, religion, and revolution.
“When officers responded to put out these fires, glass bottles were thrown and lasers – which can cause permanent blindness – were shined in their eyes,” Cline said. “We have three officers who currently have eye injuries and they may not recover sight in those eyes from those laser attacks.”
The FPS has purchased anti-laser glasses that federal officers are now wearing to prevent eye injuries.
What a nasty, destructive and homicidal group these “peaceful protesters” are.
Kim Kardashian West has publicly addressed her husband Kanye’s mental health issues following a series of erratic statements in recent days.
She wrote on Instagram: “As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder.
“Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand.”
Thus ends one of the most promising and interesting political campaigns in American history. West seems able to tap into the emotions of the country as they are changing, and to see things that official media would not, even if his suggestions are sometimes a bit unrealistic.
Now, as protests sparked by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis focus attention on the hundreds of Confederate statues still standing across the Southern landscape, officials in the rural parish of roughly 20,000 people have voted 5-3 to leave the statue where it is.
In the quest for public affirmation, many people jumped on the bandwagon. The winners waited and have let this one fade away as the George Floyd narrative collapses and the protesters are revealed to be criminals.
Multiple videos posted online showed camouflage-clad officers without clear identification badges using force and unmarked vehicles to transport arrested protesters, tactics that civil-rights advocates said could violate protesters’ right to free speech under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
President Donald Trump, who has been sliding in opinion polls as he seeks re-election, has vowed to also send federal agents to cities including New York, Philadelphia and Chicago, which critics said would amount to a use of federal power for political ends.
Now we suffer another nonsense narrative; the National Guard has been called out in the past to put down riots like the LA Riots and Watts Riots. The Leftist mayors want their cities to burn in order to spread mass panic and conformity so that people vote against Trump. As usual, what the Left accuses Trump of doing — using a crisis for political ends — is exactly what they are doing, and something from which they want to deflect our attention.
The discussions on whether to blacklist Zero Hedge on Wikipedia began on July 19 – three days after NBC News published a controversial article about Zero Hedge’s Google advertising ban.
This NBC News article noted that Zero Hedge had been banned after Google was notified of research from the pressure group Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) and the author of the article, NBC News journalist Adele-Momoko Fraser, promoted the article by thanking the CCDH for their collaboration before deleting the tweet after facing backlash.
The Wikipedia editors ultimately decided to blacklist Zero Hedge on July 16. This NBC News article and an article about Zero Hedge being banned from Twitter were the first two articles cited as reasons to blacklist Zero Hedge, despite the outlet having both its Twitter and Google advertising accounts reinstated before it was blacklisted.
Welcome to Clown World, where all of the “official sources” and “fact checkers” represent herd opinion, which is resolutely turned against reality and toward the fiction that what people desire is more important than what is actual. If people wonder why this site stopped using Wikipedia links some time ago, the reasoning can be found in incidents like this, which have been ongoing for more than a decade. Other common fact checkers like Snopes seem to be disinformation projects as well.
The US government ordered China to close the consulate on Tuesday, provoking outrage from Beijing and prompting diplomats to begin burning documents in the building’s courtyard. Previous statements issued by the State Department spoke only in broad terms about China’s alleged violation of US sovereignty and intimidation of Americans.
That changed on Wednesday morning, when David Stilwell, the top East Asia official at the State Department, singled out the consulate in Houston in a New York Times interview as having “a history of engaging in subversive behaviour”.
The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has been “sending students both overtly and otherwise to American universities to study things to advance their own warfare advantages in the economic world and the rest”, said Stilwell, adding that “at the epicentre of all these activities facilitated by the [People’s Republic of China] mission is this consulate in Houston”.
No one is surprised. Under Obama, America slept; under Trump the massive Chinese espionage operation against government and industry went on without a hitch. The world will remember this incident as an event where China was accused of infiltration and in retreat, promptly burned giant piles of documents, causing the fire department to show up and be turned away lest they be CIA informers. While you are watching the Chinese hurriedly incinerate their secrets, stop by SoundWaves next door, still one of the best stores in America for people who prefer music on a physical medium. About a quarter of my music collection came from there, with another quarter from SoundPlus down the street (1403 Westheimer). Good stuff can also still be found from Sound Exchange and Vinal Edge.
China’s refusal to be held legally accountable for the widespread and documented allegations did not absolve the global community of responsibility, the Bar Human Rights Committee of England and Wales (BHRC) said in a report released on Wednesday.
“All states, including China, have unequivocally accepted that slavery and racial discrimination, torture and genocide are prohibited,” it said.
“They have committed to not carry out those proscribed acts; they have committed to their prevention; and they have committed to punishment of perpetrators where they have found individuals to have committed those proscribed acts. There can be no derogation from those commitments.”
The Leftists and deep state want us to attack China while we are the most internally divided we have ever been, which will give them an opportunity to take over, write a quick peace treaty, and go back to mining money from Chinese manufacturing of junk disposable products to be sold to our underclasses and funded by high entitlements taxes. Trump has a more sensible plan: he wants to back China into a corner to make its economy collapse, causing Asia and Europe to fall as dominoes, vaulting the US to global prominence and in turn, compelling America to bring manufacturing and services back to its own shores, which will in turn urge us to end our socialist-style entitlements state just as Europe, with higher defense bills and less easy cash from China, will be forced to drop its Leftist cradle-to-grave potlatch states. The end result will be a world collapse of Leftism; the powers that be do not want that, and they want you to go fight and die for them in foreign lands so they can preserve their cushy consulting jobs. It is not “the rich” doing this to you, but a massive class of bureaucrats, most of whom come from humble backgrounds.
In the meantime, China is pushing aggressive expansion in India where it has expanded its territorial claims through military action:
While Galwan is a fresh claim, the other three fall in gray areas, implying these are geographically located between the multiple self-claimed boundaries of China and the Indian perception of the LAC. Any construction or holding onto territory in disputed (or gray areas) is barred under agreement between the two countries.
It is clearly an attempt to push India westwards to “fix” a fresh LAC that partly adheres to the 1962 war-time position of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) and partly to China’s own claim line of 1960, said a senior functionary. The disengagement process that started some two weeks ago has hit a hurdle as the PLA is yet to fully pull back to points agreed upon by the two sides.
In Japan where China is aggressively probing airspace:
Japan’s Air Self-Defence Force is scrambling interceptors every time Chinese military
aircraft are detected taking off from an airbase in Fujian province on the assumption that they are going to probe Japanese defences around disputed islands in the East China Sea.
The escalation in activity in the skies above the uninhabited Diaoyu Islands, which are administered by Japan, where they are known as the Senkakus, means the ASDF is effectively operating a constant dawn-to-dusk combat air patrol over the islands, government sources told Kyodo News. Previously, Japanese fighters were only scrambled in response to specific threats.
And around Taiwan, where China has begun preparations for invasion:
Taiwan has complained that China has stepped up threatening military activities near Taiwan in recent months. Beijing has not renounced the use of force to bring the democratic island under its control.
“Looking on the long-term trend, China appears to be gradually stepping up its military preparedness, especially in air or on the waters near Taiwan,” Wu told reporters.
“What China is doing now is continuing to ramp up preparedness to solve the Taiwan issue,” he said.
Add these up, and we see a picture: China wants war. Trump, by showing them aggressive military presence, is pushing back on their dreams by avoiding the unclear signals that appeasement send. He is pushing China back into itself where it has to deal with the internal problems that began in 2009.
If China wants war, it means two things: first, they have some kind of plan that makes them think they can achieve something; second, that their internal instability, especially economic, is far worse than we have been led to believe.
We may see a Red Storm strategy here where China, unable to produce what it needs, seeks to seize oil or other wealth from nearby nations, possibly triggering a corresponding Russian attack in Western Europe for similar reasons.
Either way, the Left has made it clear that it wants war following the WW1/2 pattern where the free world decides that someone is not democratic enough, and mobilizes. China would benefit from drawing the West into war in the East so that Russia could attack and seize Western Europe or the middle east.
A photo and a video show two SAS soldiers smiling and holding up the flag, which has the words “Southern Pride” emblazoned on it.
This flag means that it is okay to be white. Not surprisingly, as it is demonized, it spreads like a virus of hope, against the viruses of fear preached by the Left.
Kevin Trejo, 21, of Westwood, was charged Monday, July 20, with “subjecting a law enforcement officer to contact with a bodily fluid, tampering with a cup of coffee knowing it was ordered by an officer and for creating a hazardous condition”, the Park Ridge Police said in a release.
The now-fired barista was “arrogant enough to be bragging about” smearing the drinks with saliva amid COVID-19 situation, Park Ridge Police Chief Joseph Madden said. It was, however, not known how many times he allegedly spat in the drinks served to cops who patronized the store.
If Starbucks collapses, where will all the Leftists work that allows them to post Communist propaganda to Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram all day long? For too long, Americans have been media sheep who buy whatever they see in the news and movies. Perhaps a round of corporate collapses will end up being a good thing.
The Soviet statues abandoned in the Muzeon park soon found the company of hundreds of contemporary sculptures, including characters from fairy tales, literary figures and abstract works. Muzeon is now part of Gorky Park, an urban oasis with a riverside embankment, cafes and shady lawns.
“It’s one thing what statues mean when they are in conspicuous sites, in main squares and big streets,” says Lipman. “It’s quite another thing when statues like that are collected among many others in a park.”
If National Public Radio likes what they see, this means that they want the same for America. They will put all the statues in a national Guilt Park, and then if anyone is seen visiting, they will be fired, have their tires slashed, and be subject to constant harassment in public.
Trump was asked about Maxwell’s case at his Tuesday evening news conference and said “I wish her well, whatever it is.”
The comment quickly sparked outrage on social media and inside the Department of Justice. Roy (R-Texas), among the most conservative members of the GOP, slammed the president’s kid-gloves treatment of a woman charged with grooming young girls into a circle of sexual abuse.
“This is unacceptably obtuse for a woman accused of the most morally depraved of crimes, @realDonaldTrump,” Roy wrote on Twitter. “She needs to be severely punished… and justice must be served for the girls she abused. For ALL involved.”
Trump gave the neutral equivalent of “good luck with that” as his statement, and now all of the weak people are gathering to try to curry favor from the hysterical mob. Washington watches polls too much, not recognizing that these consist of mostly Leftist people who have nothing better to do. The Left only cares about getting Trump out of power because he is an effective non-Leftist leader.
Mehulkumar Manubhai Patel and his wife Chitali Dave allegedly laundered over $400,000 on behalf of India-based phone scammers who cheated Americans into sending money by pretending to be government officials or tech support, prosecutors said on Tuesday.
Foreign groups here are operating for their own benefit, not yours.
Pvt. Mejhor Morta, 26, was found unresponsive July 17 in the vicinity of Stillhouse Hollow Lake, according to Fort Hood officials.
On June 21, officials had discovered skeletal remains in a field in Killeen, just over 10 miles (16 kilometers) from Stillhouse Hollow Lake, which were subsequently identified as 24-year-old missing Fort Hood soldier Gregory Morales.
On June 21, officials had discovered skeletal remains in a field in Killeen, just over 10 miles (16 kilometers) from Stillhouse Hollow Lake, which were subsequently identified as 24-year-old missing Fort Hood soldier Gregory Morales.
Why are so many minority soldiers dying at this base?
Twitter removed more than 7,000 accounts linked to QAnon, it said Tuesday. The move is part of the social media giant’s effort to limit the spread of the conspiracy theory by its supporters.
Other measures include blocking URLs associated with QAnon from being shared on the platform. Twitter also said it would stop highlighting and recommending tweets relating to the movement.
“We’ve been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behavior that has the potential to lead to offline harm,” Twitter said
By this standard, just about anything “has the potential to lead to offline harm.” QAnon mostly serves to distract ordinary people with a simple explanation for the deep state, instead of pointing out that bureaucracy is a job and Leftism is popular with idiots, so those two groups have united to rule us through government over-reach enabled by civil rights law and other “altruistic” legal theories.
The attorney, Jeffrey Pagliuca, filed a letter in Manhattan federal court citing public comments made by Acting U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss, the head of New York’s FBI office and lawyers for accusers of British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell after her July 2 arrest in Bradford, New Hampshire.
He said the comments show that an order is necessary to prevent “prejudicial pretrial publicity by the government, its agents, and lawyers for alleged witnesses.”
Juicy details may be floating to the surface. Maxwell wants to keep as much secret as possible so that she can flip on a few already-weak people and get out of informing on the others who were part of Nail A Teen Slut Island and its festivities.
The West Bank, captured by Israel in a 1967 war, is scattered with Israeli settlements which its 3 million Palestinians mostly cannot enter, as well as checkpoints and military bases that Israel says it needs for its security.
Over an hour into their ride, Kurdi said Komoot led them east towards a rocky path near the Israeli settlement of Shilo. He said a group of Hebrew-speaking men, whom the cyclists later took to be Israeli settlers, approached and asked where they were from.
Kurdi, 30, replied that they were from the Palestinian city of Ramallah. Soon after, the men — Kurdi estimates there were five or six — started throwing stones at them, using T-shirts to hide their faces, Kurdi and his brother, Samer, said.
Diversity results in hostilities toward minorities everywhere. When more than one ethnic group occupies a space, the two groups vie for power, especially who gets to define the behaviors, customs, mores, aesthetics, and future direction of the society they share.
Not surprisingly, we find China active here as well promoting the interests of minorities against a majority in order to sow discontent:
Voicing support for the two-state solution, Xi also said that “China and Palestine are good brothers, good friends and good partners” and vowed to keep supporting the PA’s efforts to fight off the COVID-19 coronavirus.
If China successfully destabilizes most of the world with internal conflicts, it can seize a great deal of territory and resources in the coming war.
“There are many doctors that I’ve gotten hostile remarks about saying that all the evidence is bad for it and, in fact, that is not true at all,” Risch told “Ingraham Angle,” adding that he believes the drug can be used as a “prophylactic” for front-line workers, as other countries like India have done.
Risch lamented that a “propaganda war” is being waged against the use of the drug for political purposes, not based on “medical facts.”
Researchers at the Henry Ford Health System in Southeast Michigan have found that early administration of hydroxychloroquine makes hospitalized patients substantially less likely to die.
They suggest people were living there 33,000 years ago, twice the widely accepted age for the earliest settlement of the Americas.
And these big-game hunters were thought to have contributed to the extinction of the megafauna – large mammals such as mammoth, mastodon and various species of bear that roamed the region until the end of the last ice age.
The results are based on work at Chiquihuite Cave, a high-altitude rock shelter in central Mexico.
We have lost so much history that we are staring at a few footnotes, trying to derive the rest. In my estimation, ancients were more competent with boats than we think, and many groups established colonies in the New World before being overwhelmed by the flood of impoverished Asiatics from Mongolia. Great civilizations like Cahokia, the Aztecs, and the Maya showed us the tail end of these original groups. Humanity has been repeating the same dumb patterns for millennia, and future research will probably show us that humans have been as smart (?) as we are now for hundreds of thousands of years, if not longer. Remnants of older groups stuck around and left traces after that time before being merged with the newer populations and living on as modern races.
A Reuters analysis of quarterly earnings calls over the past week revealed more than 25 large companies plan to reduce their office space in the year ahead, a move designed to reduce the second-largest expense after payrolls at corporations.
Next step: realizing that most of what we do in offices and business is pro forma activity to build the CVs of managers, and can be cut out so we can focus on what is real. In a sane society, people would be paid to accomplish specific tasks and kept on retainer so that they were always available when needed; the modern office is mostly a regulatory creation, and since there is not enough to do, nonsense work expands to fill the space.
China is sending a previously invisible armada of industrial boats to illegally fish in North Korean waters, violently displacing smaller North Korean boats and spearheading a decline in once-abundant squid stocks of more than 70 percent.
Perhaps we see the root of the problem China faces here: too many people to feed, so it must expand to take in additional territorial waters for fishing. This suggests that its economic miracle is fake because, like the Soviet Union and Revolutionary France, it cannot motivate its agriculture workers enough to feed its people. They are too busy assembling iPhones and other crap gadgets.
Wirecard became a national disgrace when it said last month that a quarter of its balance sheet probably doesn’t exist. That set off a blame game between banks, auditors and public authorities and revealed large gaps in the country’s accounting oversight.
Questions have also been raised about what government officials knew about Wirecard’s problems and when they were informed about them. Scholz was aware of suspicions of market manipulation at the digital payments company in February 2019, almost a year and a half before it collapsed.
The clever monkeys of Europe figured out a scam: the US would defend them, so they could throw more money into social benefits, then make tons of cash selling junk to the Chinese, including digital companies that are essentially Silicon Valley style scams. Trump has interrupted this, and with it, the European system that placed pro-diversity politicians like quarter-Polish Angela Merkel into power.
In one post, Sheldon shared an image of a helicopter with a giant bucket of fried chicken with the caption “On my way to save Minneapolis.” She also left a comment likening protesters and looters to “a bunch of animals.”
Funny, but cruel. Opposition to diversity is rising. The people they are busting are not closet White Nationalists, but ordinary people who are getting sick of the guilt, shakedown, and constant ethnic violence. Instead of striking out at your Black brothers and sisters, maybe just point out that diversity of any form is suicide, no matter who the foreign groups are. One ethnic group per nation works.
The seven former employees, who were responsible for investigating complaints about misconduct within the party, including anti-Semitism, appeared on a BBC investigative program last year looking into whether Labour was anti-Semitic. They criticized the party’s handling of anti-Semitism complaints, and sued the party when it issued a statement describing them as having “personal and political axes to grind.”
The Left hates any successful group; anyone who rises above the mean is a threat to the Big Lie of “equality.” Consequently, they love Palestinians, a doomed 95 average IQ group of brown people, and hate Israeli Jews, who tend to have average IQs of 115 thanks in part to Hitler killing the dumber, poorer, and less aware European Jews. This shows you just how dumb anti-Semitism really is: anti-Jewish thinkers blame one group for the failures of diversity, and should simply end diversity. It is closer and more accessible than we are told we dare think.
Brooks was 23 years old in 2004 when he went to a party in LaCygne, which is on the eastern edge of Kansas. He never came home and family members found his body in a creek weeks after he went missing.
Drunk guy with no job and a connection to drug activity hit on the wrong woman at a party, so now this has to be spun into a “hate crime.” Since the George Floyd narrative dropped deader than George Floyd once the transcripts and other case data came out, Industrialized Leftism Inc. needs a new victim to mobilize the next round of riots so they can rocket Trump out of the presidency.
SESTA’s easy passage came despite the best efforts of Silicon Valley powerhouses like Google, and suggested that these companies’ old way of operating in D.C. was no longer viable. For a long time, tech giants could count on strong alliances with the Democratic establishment and the progressive movement, together with the pro-business Republican Party’s overall aversion to regulation, to ensure general freedom from Washington interference. But a strong Republican House through most of the Obama years—followed by Republican control of all three federal branches after the 2016 elections, and a reconsideration of free-market ideology within the GOP—meant that Silicon Valley needed friends in Washington whose names weren’t followed by (D-CA).
The Google Transparency Project released a landmark report in December of 2019 detailing the way Google went about making those new friends. It hinges, in large part, on a single person: six-year employee Rachel Whetstone was promoted to senior vice president for communications and public policy in May of 2011—not long after a wave of Republicans took control of the House of Representatives. Whetstone is the granddaughter of Antony Fisher, founder of the libertarian mega-donor Atlas Network, and daughter of its current chairwoman.
Now we see what is animating the NeverTrumpers.
