Life —it’s all about them

 

Gwyneth Paltrow

By Mustang

It’s pretty amazing when you think about it … how rich and arrogant leftists are, how they will do anything to enrich themselves further, all the while pretending that they give a damn about “the people.”  I read this example of financial greed a week or so ago … thought I’d share.

The actress Gwyneth Paltrow (a leftist-weirdo if ever there was one) wasn’t content to rake in millions in the film industry, so she started a company called Goop.  No, really —that’s what she calls it.  The company sells “healthful” products to help the little people. She calls it her lifestyle brand.  Some examples of her products include GTOX 5-salt detox body scrub, Martini Emotional Detox Bath Soak, Replenishing Night Crème, and Revitalizing Day Moisturizer.  She calls one wellness product He Shou Wu rejuvenation tonic; it’s a supplement selling for about $73.00.  You can get a charcoal stick for just under $30 —but I’m not quite sure what you’re supposed to do with it.

A British newspaper recently described the Paltrow products as Gobbledy-Goop and they’ve called her out on some of her ridiculous claims.  Ignoring these criticisms, she actually appeared on BBC to defend her brand, even claiming that the company hires its own scientists to help develop quality products.

Perhaps Gwyneth misspoke; perhaps she meant to say that her company hires its own pseudoscientists.  Real scientists are telling BBC that Paltrow’s claims are only this: fraudulent.  Dr. Edzard Ernst, who is an emeritus professor of medicine at the University of Exeter said, “The only evidence her products are supported is that they render Mrs. Paltrow richer and her gullible customers a little poorer.”  Dr. Les Rose, a retired medical researcher added, “This subculture of alternative health is actually very harmful.”

Well, no matter … Paltrow won’t be dissuaded.  “We really believe there are healing modalities that have existed for thousands of years and they challenge maybe a conventional western doctor that might not believe necessarily in the healing powers of essential oils or any variety of acupuncture —things that have been tried and tested for hundreds of years … and we find that they are very helpful to people and that there is an incredible power in the human body to heal itself.”

Here’s a sample of her healing modalities (raucous laughter is authorized):

She sells Jade Eggs.  The company ran a televised interview with a beauty guru who advocated that women should put jade eggs inside their vaginas to increase their sexual energy.

The company also recommends Vaginal Steaming to clean the female insides.  This is where a client sits on a mini-throne and a combination of infrared and mugwort steam cleans the uterus.  Paltrow wrote, “It is an energetic release that balances female hormones.”  One [real] doctor opined: “It is probably not a good for the vagina.  Herbal steam is no better and possibly worse.  Mugwort, when steamed, either vaginally or on the vulva, can’t possibly balance any reproductive hormones, regulate menstrual cycles, treat depression, or cure infertility. Most definitely never do that,” he said, “as there are risks of burns at a place where you don’t want any.”

Goop recommends that women never wear tight bras because it can increase the risk of breast cancer.  Now this is a topic that scares most women.  Experts, on the other hand, say that the claim is “bad, unscientific, and maddening.”  Why would Paltrow do such a thing?

Finally, Paltrow’s company sells Moon Dust.  Yep.  It’s a range of powdered herbal remedies said to work synergistically at the deepest levels to enhance one’s beauty, brains, body, sexual energy, sleep, and spirit.  Paltrow herself is said to sprinkle moon dust in her morning smoothie.  On the other hand, bona fide nutritionists say that its ingredients are a mixture of Chinese herbs and medicines and there is no evidence that it has any value to human health.

Paltrow had to pay out nearly $150,000 for making the false Jade Egg claim, but she remains undeterred.  She and fellow nut bag Demi Moore toasted ten successful years selling their snake-oil modalities to people who are dumber than they are.

I suppose it all comes down to this: either Gwyneth Paltrow seeks to enrich herself by taking advantage of mentally fragile people, which is typical of most leftists here in America as well, or if she truly does believe in the healing power of Vaginal Steaming, she ought not be allowed to walk around without the supervision of an adult caretaker.

What’s it all about? Kavanaugh or an Obama Phone?

 

In the future this will be known as the week that was. What’s it all about Alfie? Kavanaugh? Or more of the swamp?

Great comments yesterday on my post:

….’1000s and 1000s and 1000s of Trump supports at everyone of his rallies.’

Surely we are on the side of being fired up. Yes the deplorables – red bloodied Americans “get’ what this Kavanaugh issue is about. It has nothing to do with Kavanaugh but for the heart and soul of our Republic. The Constitution.  We love our God and Guns. Independence. Less government interference. The Deep State beckons.

 

Then:

….but the cities….festering with their mouths open for another “I want me an Obama Phone” and much much more.

Another month or so we will know.

Kavanaugh’s accuser’s brother worked at Law firm that paid $500,000 to Fusion GPS

 

It will be interesting to see what info we get on the so called “victim” of Kavanaugh. Ford has scrubbed all of her social media it is claimed. Bet some of it might bubble up. Another twist is Ford’s attorney and her background.

Ralph Blasey III, Christine Ford’s brother was formerly employed at the D.C. offices of Baker & Hostetler LLP. That’s the same firm that made payments over over half a million dollars to Fusion GPS. However, Ralph Blasey III was NOT with Baker & Hostetler LLP at the time of the Trump-Russia dossier formulation.

Blasey left Baker & Hostetler LLP in 2004. Still, its’ just another rather odd twist to the case of the accuser of Brett Kavanaugh. First it was revealed Ford is a far left, Northern California professor. Then last night it was revealed that Brett Kavanugh’s mother, a Maryland district judge in the 1990’s foreclosure case against Christine Ford’s parents.

And now this. Christine Ford’s brother once worked for Baker & Hostetler LLP that paid Fusion GPS $523,651 between March 7, 2016 and Oct. 31, 2016. Even though the payments were made after Blasey III left Baker & Hostetler LLP, one has to wonder (and investigate) his connections with the law firm. He may have had no knowledge at all of the payment. Ralph Blasey might have had ZERO influence with the payment.

The records show that Fusion was also paid $523,651 by the law firm BakerHostetler between March 7, 2016 and Oct. 31, 2016.

Fusion worked for BakerHostetler to investigate Bill Browder, a London-based banker who helped push through the Magnitsky Act, a sanctions law vehemently opposed by the Kremlin.

BakerHostetler represented Prevezon Holdings and its owner, a Russian businessman named Denis Katsyv.

Katsyv and Prevezon sought to limit the impact of the Magnitsky sanctions.

Then we have the Attorney:

The Legal Attorney is a big time Democrat donor and has trashed Paula Jones

 

Since 2004, Katz has donated at least $26,000 to Democratic politicians including Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and John Kerry. She also donated to groups such as MoveOn.org, the DNC Services Corp, and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Likewise, in March 2017 Katz declared via Facebook that, “These people are all miscreants. The term ‘basket of deplorables’ is far too generous a description for these people who are now Senior Trump advisors,” after a report surfaced that Department of Homeland Security advisor Frank Wuco made anti-Islamic remarks which prompted his resignation.

Now the set up:

See, the GOP must be kind, and gentle to Ford. Katz believes no doubt a micro-aggression is in the works. So hands up GOP concede the battle and give the Dems what they want. You have given them everything else.

 

 

 

Election fraud? Just look at Microsoft, U.S. Servers in Spain, Scytl

 

I just read that it is Microsoft to the rescue in “saving” our election process, now that is a laugh. The very people that have their hand in the cookie jar….but wait. I am getting ahead. Let me retool a 2014 post. I am sure it is worse by now:

In what has to be one of the most troubling pieces of news, we learn that Scytl is on the move in taking control of many world-wide elections as well as increasing in U.S. elections via electronic means.

Now Microsoft’s Paul Allen has chipped into the pot. Here is the update from earlier posts you might want to check out. First the back story.

 

 

Foreign company owns U.S. election software-UPDATE

“Obama donor’s company funds controversial election firm” reads the headline. We now are turning over our election software to a foreign company that happens to support Obama.The Drudge Report yesterday ran a feature titled “Foreign company buys U.S. election results reporting firm.” The article documented that SCYTL, based in Barcelona, acquired 100 percent of SOE Software, the leading software provider of election management solutions in the United States. Drudge reports that the  best part is that the election results are redirected not to a USA server, but to a server overseas.

UPDATE:Save American Foundation:

SCYTL, the global leader in secure electronic voting technologies, announced today the acquisition of 100% of SOE Software, the leading software provider of election management solutions in the United States.

A foreign Company, based in Spain, with ties to Obama is the leading election software providers with their servers in Spain.

This is worse: This redirects results reporting to a centralized privately held server which is not just for Ohio, but national; not just USA-based, but global.

Your e-Government software experts. Why choose SOE Software for your communication, productivity and e-Learning solutions? Ask our customers in over 525 jurisdictions in 19 states that we currently work with (AL, AZ, CA, CO, DC, FL, KY, MI, KS, IL, IN, NC, NM, MN, NY, SC, TX, UT, WA). The answer you will hear again and again is unrivaled experience. SOE Staff members have worked in the public sector and understand your needs. SOE Software offers the solutions you need with the support you demand. From Soe Software

Why is a software company based in Barcelona Spain(SCYTL)  now in charge of counting our votes in the upcoming General Election on November 6th.  Did the Federal Elections Commission approve of this ?  (FEC) Did the Congress of the United States approve of this ?

The firm already provides balloting for overseas U.S. military and civilian voting in nine states along with elections technologies in several districts

With the purchase of SOE Software, meanwhile, SCYTL has increased its involvement in the U.S. elections process. SOE Software boasts a strong U.S. presence, providing results in over 900 jurisdictions.

In 2009, SCYTL formally registered with the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (AEC) as the first Internet voting manufacturer in the U.S. under the EAC Voting System Testing and Certification Program.

Project Vote noted that in 2008, the Florida Department of State commissioned a review of SCYTL’s remote voting software and concluded, in part, that:

  • The system is vulnerable to attack from insiders.
  • In a worst case scenario, the software could lead to (1) voters being unable to cast votes; (2) an election that does not accurately reflect the will of the voters; and (3) possible disclosure of confidential information, such as the votes cast by individual voters.
  • The system may be subject to attacks that could compromise the integrity of the votes cast.

Check out Hacked D.C. election test site researcher testifies easy to do

University of Michigan professor who with his students hacked a prototype D.C. voting website and had it play the school’s fight song said today it will be decades, if ever, before voting can be performed safely over the Internet.

J. Alex Halderman, a computer science professor, has been participating in a test of Washington’s new “Digital Vote By Mail” system, which was supposed to allow some 900 D.C. overseas voters submit ballots over the Internet.

During the test, which began last week, not only was Halderman’s group able to get the site to play the fight song, they also changed cast votes to “evil science fiction robots” and gained access to video cameras monitoring a board of elections data center.

Halderman’s hack prompted election officials to take down the system for several days, but it went back up on Tuesday. Halderman said that on Thursday his group changed the password to part of the system to “InternetVotingIsDangerous!” and locked officials out. The test of the system was supposed to end today.

Now back to the latest news:

Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, a supporter of President Obama, is investing $40 million in Scytl, the Spain-based firm that in January 2012 acquired 100 percent of SOE Software, the leading software provider of election management solutions in the United States.

Allen made the investment via his Vulcan Capital, the investment management firm that oversees his multi-billion dollar portfolio.

Abhishek Agrawal, Vulcan Capital’s managing director, told the Wall Street Journal’s blog he expects countries to eventually become comfortable with digital-only elections.

“This is a very powerful global trend,” Agrawal added. “There is a pathway toward gradual modernization.”

Another of Allen’s charitable groups, the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, donated a total of $250,000 to the immigration-reform advocacy group Centro de la Raza.

The same foundation provided $450,000 to the Urban Institute.

The supposedly “nonpartisan” Urban Institute’s employees have a record of donating nearly 100 percent of their political contributions to Democrats. Officially, the Urban Institute advocates for socialized medicine, carbon taxes and amnesty for illegal aliens.

Scytl, meanwhile, is advancing worldwide. WND reported yesterday an entire municipality in Canada will utilize online-only voting in the next election, with all balloting to be run via Scytl.

WND reported in 2012 that Scytl announced the successful implementation of technology that allows ballots to be cast using Google and Apple smartphones and tablet computers

Sanders worried about Microsoft’s Apps involvement in Iowa caucus with good reason

 

Obama sues to restrict military voting

McCaskill rakes in big federal bucks, can she keep up with Valerie Jarrett?

 

What is it with making all of these super big bucks on federal housing projects? Recall the mysterious Valerie Jarrett’s path to riches? Looks like Claire and her family have the same penchant for getting bucks the easy way. Don’t you just love all these Dems feeding off the government trough, denying help to those they claim they care so much about? Of course guess who will line up en masse at the voters line come November to support their non benefactor.

 

Businesses tied to Claire McCaskill’s family received $131 MILLION in federal dollars.

The Kansas City Star reported:

Businesses tied to U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill’s husband have been awarded more than $131 million in federal subsidies since the Missouri Democrat took office in 2007, an analysis by The Kansas City Star found.

Joseph Shepard’s personal income from his investments in those businesses has grown exponentially during his wife’s two terms in the Senate.

The federal payments don’t go directly into Shepard’s pocket. Most of the money goes toward operating costs for government-subsidized housing projects Shepard is invested in. Those companies then distribute the profits to Shepard and other investors.

In 2006, the year before McCaskill entered the Senate, her husband’s personal income from those investments was between $1,608 and $16,731, according to the senator’s financial disclosure forms.

In 2017, five years into McCaskill’s second term, Shepard personally earned between $365,374 and $1,118,158 from investments in housing projects that received federal subsidies, the disclosure forms show. Disclosure forms only provide ranges of income. H/T: Gateway Pundit

Home sweet home -thanks Valerie

Valerie Jarrett: “Jarrett [managed] a controversial low-income housing project located in Obama’s former state senate district… [the] complex was considered ‘uninhabitable by unfixed problems, such as collapsed roofs and fire damage… In 2006, federal inspectors graded the condition of the complex an 11 on a 100-point scale — a score so bad the buildings now face demolition.’ …According to documents uncovered by Judicial Watch, Jarrett is also linked to a series of other shady real estate scandals involving convicted felon and former Obama fundraiser Antoin “Tony” Rezko…”

Jarrett was also named in a 2008 Boston Globereport on Grove Parc, an immense housing complex largely funded by taxpayers and managed by her company. After burning through millions in public funds, Jarrett’s management skills resulted in a complex that was largely “uninhabitable.”

Earlier this year The Boston Globe reported on the stunning failures of Jarrett’s companies. “Jarrett is the chief executive of Habitat Co., which managed Grove Parc Plaza from 2001 until this [past] winter and co-managed an even larger subsidized complex in Chicago that was seized by the federal government in 2006, after city inspectors found widespread problems.”

Valerie Jarrett, a product of Chicago’s Daley machine, couldn’t manage a housing complex with millions in taxpayer funds. But she will be a big help in the swamp.

Law Firm behind junk Russian Dossier behind fake hit on Jim Jordan

 

While we were out celebrating the founding of our Nation, one of the swamp’s snakes let out its evil venom in the form of an attack on Congressman Jim Jordan. MSNBC Morning’s Joe and smirkie Mika were relishing the notion this morning that one of the few stalwart defenders of liberty just might be taken out. Better yet, the snake’s nest was none other than the law firm the Democrats have been using to launder their filthy money in doing so:

 

The DC Swamp unleashed a smear campaign on Jim Jordan Tuesday morning, accusing him of turning a blind eye to sexual abuse as Ohio State wrestling coach… 20 years ago!

Rep. Jim Jordan has been hammering Rosenstein and the FBI over their corruption, Russia probe and Spygate.

The Ohio Congressman also just announced his House Speakership bid plans; he’s a Freedom Caucus founder and very popular with Trump supporters.

The law firm handling the probe into abuse allegations at Ohio State and targeting Jim Jordan is none other than Perkins Coie. Yes, the same Perkins Coie Hillary Clinton used during the 2016 election to stealth pay for her dirty, fake Russia dossier.

Last fall Glenn Simpson revealed in Congressional testimony that the Clinton campaign and Democrat Party were the financial backers behind Fusion GPS’s Trump dossier project.

The House Intelligence Committee released a 165-page transcript of testimony given on Nov. 14 by Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson.

Snip….

Fusion in turn hired Steele, an ex-MI6 officer who operates a private intelligence firm in London.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Barack Obama also hired Fusion GPS to investigate Mitt Romney and also hid the payments through Perkins Coie.

“As had become standard practice in the shadowy world of ‘oppo’ research, the Obama campaign’s payments to Fusion GPS were never publicly disclosed; the money paid to the investigative firm was reported on campaign disclosure reports as legal bills to the campaign’s law firm, Perkins Coie,” the book reads.

The Obama for America committee paid Perkins Coie around $3 million during the 2012 election cycle, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission, A vast majority of the payments were earmarked for “Legal Services.”

NBC reported:

Rep. Jim Jordan, the powerful Republican congressman from Ohio, is being accused by former wrestlers he coached more than two decades ago at Ohio State University of failing to stop the team doctor from molesting them and other students.

The university announced in April that it was investigating accusations that Dr. Richard Strauss, who died in 2005, abused team members when he was the team doctor from the mid-1970s to late 1990s.

Jordan, who was assistant wrestling coach at the university from 1986 to 1994, has repeatedly said he knew nothing of the abuse until former students began speaking out this spring. His denials, however, have been met with skepticism and anger from some former members of the wrestling team.

What Dems got with the surprise election of Comrade Ocasio-Cortez

 

So from the cesspool of foreign soil come our neighbors from the South. Bringing their virus of social unrest to the land of opportunity. Once here, they prosper. In return for our hospitality that comes in the form of healthcare, education, living expenses such as housing and food, their virus of social unrest re-emerges.

Not content with the success at life they now have, they turn on their benefactor. They would have their host destroyed. The very system of government that gave them so much must be overturned. They would have America turn into the very cesspool they chose to escape.

Without further adieu let’s look at this number coming out of the overturn in New York of a long-term Democrat Crowley.

So just what is a Democratic Socialist? How and why are they permitted to run on the Democrat party label? The Democrats need to have a serious moment of self-reflection I doubt had she been required to run on the Democrat label she would have gotten as far as she has. If the media had made any effort to reveal her extreme viewpoints, I wonder as well.

Cortez will now be pushed to the head of the political line. Just as they have this Kamela Harris and Linda Sarsour – more blight on the horizon. Stay tuned. You will see much of her.

 

The Democratic Socialists of America of coming for your property. Here are Comrade Cortez’s views on the issues.

 

 

 

DSA Where we stand

 

I took just one smidgen out of their manifesto- check out the full thing:

 

What about her pals? – warning, really foul stuff if you link out to the Caller.

The platform Ocasio-Cortez ran on was deeply progressive, calling on the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, nationalized health care, universal jobs guarantee and getting America to 100 percent green energy.

However, footage reveals that Ocasio-Cortez also has associates with regressive views.

One of Ocasio-Cortez’s most enthusiastic campaigners and a man who stood behind her at her victory party, Thomas Lopez-Pierre, is a known anti-Semite and racist. Lopez-Pierre has regularly used slurs against Jewish and black New Yorkers in public forums and while running for office himself.

While running for office in 2017, Lopez-Pierre specifically campaigned on “protecting tenants from greedy Jewish landlords.” Lopez-Pierre’s own campaign website shows his rantings agains “Greedy Jewish Landlords.” His campaign website applauds the arrest of “Greedy Jewish Landlords” and says that “Jewish Landlords” are “punishing” black and Hispanic families.
