Jeffery Toobin was caught masturbating on a company zoom call. He was put on leave for awhile but CNN boss Jeff Zucker decided to give him another chance.


Toobin and Zucker have something in common with each other - but not in common with you.

Got 1.30 into the video and had to stop it. I’ve got to start stopping the entry of the black pill info into my mind, it aint healthy.

I had my mouse on a new tab to go to wikipedia and look for the bio - thanks for clarifying in advance :laughter: I should stop researching it anyways, you can smell them from a distance

Jeff Bezos has published something in his own personally owned national newspaper:

View attachment 31405

As much as I hate this weirdo he’s right, when you tax rich people they stop spending their money or start spending it in other countries. The idea of taxing the rich doesn’t work, it just screw over the middle class more and especially the upper middle class who are the ones that really contribute. I don’t know how this hasn’t been understood yet, but then again it’s just buzzword politics….”we’re going to tax the rich” sounds much better to the sheep than “we’re going to incentivize the rich and businesses to actually spend their money”.

Do we really want Jeff Bezos investing more? He already owns Amazon and everything that goes with it, Metro Goldwyn Meyer, & Wapo. Every job that he has created has replaced 1.25 jobs that were higher paying than what existed before Amazon's monopoly. How many small businesses have been destroyed by this man? Almost nobody has benefited more from destroying the world's economy during the "covid" lockdowns than this guy. None of these billionaires are Christian, and half of them are known to belong to a hostile foreign tribe.

Maybe you would be right if we had genuinely philanthropic Christian billionaires. But that's not the case. These people create shell charities, then donate to their own charity, which then in roundabout ways gives kickbacks to the originating billionaire's corporation. Then that billionaire CEO gets bonuses.

This is a crooked system and billionaires absolutely should be taxed at least to the same rate that the rest of us are. Every year a homeowner is taxed a percentage of their net worth in the form of property taxes. Can we say that of billionaires?

Except that's very inaccurate. In our society as of today, "rich people", as a class, tend to act as money sinks, not recirculators. That is one of the things the left actually gets right (broken clock): rich people suck up money and then pay it back in under-inflationary amounts, so they are a net drain on the economy. That is why they are rich: more money flows IN, less money flows OUT from their pockets.

They also already take their money overseas to begin with, and it's not because of tax rates. It's because they are participating in a deliberate destabilization of American economy and society. The whining about tax rates they do is just smoke for the (((subversion))).

If you want to rebuild American economy, the key is not to incentivize the giant corporations, it is to incentivize the AVERAGE JOES to start LOCAL businesses. Walmart needs to die in favor of local grocers. Amazon needs to die in favor of local bookstores and electronics stores. This means one of the first steps is deregulating the hell out of small businesses, startups. Make it easy to start a business and hire people. No forms or any bull, just I give you money, you work for me.

It is the middle class who really are the recirculators, not the rich. The middle class just needs to be shifted from being one of professional wageslaves to a class of independents turning their own profit. We really need to forget about the quest to become obscenely rich, and just be happy with sustaining a healthy economy and social ecosystem that can be preserved generationally.

The billionaires have no interest in doing this. If they were even 1% as patriotic as conservatives love to claim they are, they would be doubling, tripling the wages they offer at their corporations out of sheer love for their fellow countrymen and the country as a whole (not forced by laws). But they're not, though, they're acting more like vampires sucking their victim dry.

This is why I consider myself a nationalist. Nationalism is the love of one's country and fellow countrymen, and a desire to advance the interests of that country and its citizenry in a generational way. I want America to be a place where I, my kids, their grandchildren, and so on forth, can have a good life under the watchful eye of our Lord. I do not want America to be... boomerified, where every man thinks only of his own profit and hates his neighbor. This is wicked in the sight of the Lord, and invites judgement. We are a country of wicked people. We must repent and turn back to the Lord, and to our neighbors. The two most important commandments are these: love the Lord with all your heart, all your mind, all your soul, and all your strength, and love your neighbor as yourself.

The first commandment there is easy to remember: even progressive Churchians claim to practice this. It is the second that so few Americans grasp: loving your neighbor. But instead, we "keep up with the Joneses" out of envy.

I hear that and understand it, when I say "rich" people I'm talking about my uncles and people I know in the high brackets who are wealthy businessmen but are afraid to invest now and move things because they will get killed on the taxes.....not necessarily billionaires who do every trick in the book to steal money.

You're conflating 1% wealth with "rich" people who are really just upper-middle class with expendable income.

This. We want to shrink that first group and enlarge that latter group. The latter group has more skin in the game and resources to pour into it.

Correct. Wealth doesn't guarantee admission into 'The Big Club.' I've mentioned before, but I personally know someone who is in the Forbes 400 and is worth near $3BN but the only way you'll know of his wealth is a few of the cars he plays with (he's had an Aventador and a Wraith), but he's a down-to-earth shirt-and-jeans guy who you would think is just the chatty, friendly guy in the office. Yet, despite that money, he is not in The Big Club.

Middle class people spread the wealth around by buying things, engaging in activities, growing families, and through entrepreneurial enterprises and taxes. Big Club 1% wealth coalesces money as power, pays no return on it, and just sucks more and more and more out of the functional economy. I'm not worried about the guy who owns a few sugar cane mills buying a private jet; I'm worried about freaks like Bezos offshoring massive amounts of wealth never to be seen in this economy again.

This is also why I would rather American blacks receive cash reparations over American oligarchs (notice how you never hear of the phrase?) enjoying the same amount via wealth transfer. At least nouveau riche hood blacks will buy cars, television sets, clothes, and meals from local businesses.
