Rubin On Progressives

I found this interview fascinating. In the first few minutes they cover what makes a Progressive world view. The use of “science” as a force of indisputable truth to power us toward their view of the utopian future. It then covers BLM as a Marxist organization, institutional capture by the Left, destruction of classical institutions, and more.

A great overview of things in a small package.

    Another interesting take on John Bolton by KT Mcfarland, I don’t think she likes him ;

    @p.g.sharrow, That’s a great analysis.

    President Trump uses those meetings as brainstorming sessions. He is not a passive recipient of information; he immediately takes charge of a briefing and takes it in the direction he wants. He tosses out ideas, the more out-of-the-box the better, and expects others to do the same. These meetings are free-for-alls, with everybody weighing in.

    If you argue with President Trump, he may grumble and argue back, but that is what his advisers are for: to lay out the flaws in his arguments and warn him if what he’s proposing is illegal or out of bounds. That is why presidents have “executive privilege,” which is the right to keep discussions with top aides confidential.

    My kind of guy!

    I’ve been watching/listening to Rubin for several weeks. Rubin runs interesting and cordial interviews whether he agrees or disagrees, he is polite and logical. A style I find refreshing when compared to the other opinionators.

    @EM: somewhat OT, but tangentially related…

    If BLM is not a charity, then on what legal basis does a benefactor fund them?

    Loans?
    Capital for stock?
    Gifts?

    Seems to me that they should be filing tax returns annualy.

    And, what does that make the rioters? Employees? Contractors? Gift recipients?

    Hmmm. Seems to me whichever way, compensating someone to break the law or destroy private/ public property is racketeering, and the funders are complicit in a conspiracy, and failure to report it all via W2, or 1099, is actionable.

    BLM is a Race Grievance Shakedown Racket. Soros handed it $100 Million for starters, now it’s in the business of shacking down businesses. Fork over the dough, or have a riot at your gate.

    IMHO we need a change to “charity” designation that specifically says Political action groups are not charities and they come under all political donation rules. Oh, and any NGO doing ANY lobbying who isn’t a religion is a Political Group.

    Based on results.Actions over rhetoric.
    Black Lives Matter is a lie.
    For Chicago says “No”.
    Burn.Loot .Murder is what they have done.
    So to me B.L.M equates to Burn. Loot. Murder.
    Brutalizing mostly black citizens.
    So they say one thing and actively promote something opposite.
    They must be Progressives.
    I admire the way your President sits back and lets these terrorists expose themselves and their financial backers.

    What a binary election choice.
    Law and Order?
    Or
    Death by Democrat?

    Master Showman meets Ugly Actors,again.

    I like how he traps Dimocrats into shouting their responsibility by tweeting he will fix it if they don’t!

    And they go for the bait every time!

    this “Rubin Report” of October 2018, a 3 hour interview of 2 brothers on learning, education and society is very interesting. We can as well see their observations through the intervening 20 months of political evolution.

    I found it well worth the time I spent listening to it…pg
