Regardless whether a China shill like Bob Iger gets appointed ambassador to China or not, the signs keep building that a Biden administration will be a very accommodating one to the Chinese communist regime. ______________________________ https://spectator.org/chairman-disney-ambassador-china/ _______ Excerpts: “Bob Iger, executive chairman of Disney, is reportedly "at the top of President-elect Joe Biden’s wish list" for several key ambassadorship positions, including the U.S. mission in China. [...] “The appointment to Beijing, not quite as high-stakes as Baghdad (at least not yet) but not a glorified vacation either, usually goes to an older or retired statesman. Iger is no diplomat and hardly a statesman, but he is one hell of a financial backer — to the tune of $250,000 straight into the coffers of the Biden Victory Fund. A quarter of a million is a substantial amount, to be sure, but also a wise investment for someone like Iger. China was the second-largest market in the world for Disney movies in 2019 and may emerge from the pandemic bigger than America. Disney also has sprawling operations within China itself, and was bringing in $1 billion in yearly revenue from its Shanghai Disneyland park alone before the coronavirus hit. [...] “Bob Iger is the most powerful person at Disney. He’s also the company’s biggest individual shareholder. As of July of this year, he holds a whopping 1,150,138 Disney shares, worth close to $200 million at current valuation. That’s over a quarter of his net worth, against which a $250,000 donation seems like a drop in the bucket. A 1 percent rise in Disney’s market capitalization would reward his generosity 10 times over. [...] “At the end of the day, Iger’s unconventional background and financial interests may make him too risky of a pick even for Biden — at least one would hope so. Yet even the fact that he is being seriously considered is an unpromising sign of the incoming administration’s China policy, and signals to Beijing that Biden intends to keep the gloves on and the money flowing.” ______________ #Disney | #BobIger | #BeijingBiden | #corporatists | #CCP

It's become crystal clear to me over this year that a national divorce is inevitable. An embrace of state-managed collectivism & cultural Marxism isn't going away. A substantial & growing portion of the population welcomes it because of indoctrination & because corporate corruption of government has convinced them big government socialism is the solution. Meanwhile, a very large segment of the country is becoming increasingly skeptical of government. Either it must be a war — one conquers the other — or we go our separate ways. I vote for the latter but I don't foresee the ruling class allowing that. ______________________________ https://townhall.com/columnists/willalexander/2020/12/20/mob-law-time-to-put-the-foot-down-firmly-n2581861 _______ Excerpts: “When America was infested with "righteous" mobs who took the law into their own hands in the early 1800s, Lincoln left a remedy to future generations on how to defend against it: "… cold, calculating, unimpassioned reason." An utter disdain for mob law is encoded onto the DNA of the body politic, thanks to men like Lincoln. [...] “Government will collapse, Lincoln warned, when good men who obey the laws become so disgusted with a government that no longer protects them, that they feel they have nothing to lose. We’re getting there. Today, we’ve seen the "vicious portion" of our population loot, burn buildings, and beat innocent people "at pleasure" and – shockingly – "with impunity." They do it in plain sight, repeatedly, and are applauded by political vultures as peaceful protesters. [...] “But the street mobs are small beans compared to America’s most dangerous hordes: High-level, white-collar mobs who work like maniacs to uproot the philosophical underpinnings of the American Revolution and the Judeo-Christian ethic. They are politicians, judges, rogue intel alums, media, activist organizations, celebrities, leftist billionaires, tech companies, and educators who butcher our history, defy our laws, and give moral and financial support to the thugs who loot and burn things to enforce white-collar mob law. [...] “They are not the majority, but they’ve hijacked the wheels of the American ship, and they’re steering it toward La-La Land at flank speed against our wills. We’re starting to feel bound, gagged, and kidnapped in our own country. [...] “Fighting Democrats and leftists has become outrageously more expensive than fighting Republicans. Democrats have become unscrupulous, amoral, and crass. They’re at war. If the gods of Utopia wills that they deceive, cheat, intimidate, destroy lives, commit violence, and break laws – well, so be it. They are a high-level version of the "vicious portion of the population" that Lincoln talked about. [...] “This crooked election and four years of mayhem are the rotten fruit of decades of insidious brainwashing. America is thronging with mobs of "mal-adapted" and "mis-educated" citizens – thanks to the media and our woke education system. Some have rejected the cultural heritage. Some have acquired it badly. Others have not acquired it at all. [...] “That’s the real source of our stubborn political divisions. We don’t just disagree; we have irreconcilable differences. It feels like civil war because irreconcilable differences are the key ingredients of civil war.” ______________ #tyranny | #corporatestate | #collectivism | #CivilWar2 | #DividedStatesofAmerica

Pretty rich for the "sedition" word to be thrown around by the #Resistance who have actively colluded to obstruct & nullify a duly-elected administration for 4 years, even to the point they were willing to hype a pandemic, derail the economy & unleash race riots on the country. Oh, there's been sedition all right. And there should be a reckoning. Unfortunately, it appears that the traitors succeeded. ______________________________ https://spectator.org/election-resistance-sedition/ _______ Excerpts: “It was inevitable that the Democrats would overreact to legal challenges by President Trump and other Republicans to corrupt election practices in swing states, but some responses have been unhinged even by their standards. One recurring refrain is particularly disturbing — that lawyers, members of Congress, and state attorneys general who supported post-election litigation are guilty of sedition.” [...] “This dangerous view of dissent has a long, sordid history among progressives. Democratic President Woodrow Wilson, for example, was the driving force behind the notorious Sedition Act of 1918, passed by his fellow Democrats at a time when they controlled both houses of Congress. This anti-democratic outrage made it a felony crime to criticize the government and, by extension, Wilson himself. [...] “Considering its ignoble history, one would think journalists would avoid a term like "sedition." Sadly, the legacy media has joined the creepy chorus described in the first paragraph above. [...] “All of this would be mildly amusing if the "S" word hadn’t actually been used by Pennsylvania’s attorney general in his reply brief to the Supreme Court. [...] “Questioning an election is not treason, but seeking to punish those who question an election can be tyranny. This is the exercise of free speech and the use of the constitutional process. For a member of Congress to denounce colleagues as traitors for raising objections is the worst form of demagoguery. [...] “Historically, authoritarian regimes have used fictitious tales of treason as the pretext for crushing their political rivals and cowing their citizens into submission. This is invariably enabled by propaganda organs willing to parrot the regime’s party line while less compliant media are censored. But that could never happen here, right? We’re Americans, right? We wouldn’t sit obediently behind our useless masks enduring a new wave of ineffective lockdowns while it appears that a presidential election is being stolen before our eyes, right? Right?” ______________ #Leftists | #TDS | #BlueCoup | #sedition
