Monday News Roundup: BLM Marxist Discovers Capitalism as China Joe Leads the U.S. on a Fast Lurch to Marxism

The New York Post nails another one. – “Black Lives Manors” reads the headline at the New York Post in an expose of the recent high-dollar real estate-buying binge by the “Marxist” leader of the Black Lives Matter movment, Patrisse Khan Cullors. The BLM founder and leader recently purchase no fewer than four new homes with a combined value of roughly $3 million, including a $1.4 million barndominium in Topanga Canyon, California.

It turns out that some of the other “Marxist” leaders of the domestic terror wing of the Democrat Party aren’t real happy about Ms. Cullors’ conspicuous displays of wealth, with at least one demanding an investigation into exactly how she has been spending the terror group’s money.

From the story at the Post:

As protests broke out across the country in the name of Black Lives Matter, the group’s co-founder went on a real estate-buying binge, snagging four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone, according to property records.

Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37, also eyed property in the Bahamas at an ultra-exclusive resort where Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods both have homes, The Post has learned. Luxury apartments and townhouses at the beachfront Albany resort outside Nassau are priced between $5 million and $20 million, according to a local agent.

The self-described Marxist last month purchased a $1.4 million home on a secluded road a short drive from Malibu in Los Angeles, according to a report. The 2,370 square-foot property features “soaring ceilings, skylights and plenty of windows” with canyon views. The Topanga Canyon homestead, which includes two houses on a quarter acre, is just one of three homes Khan-Cullors owns in the Los Angeles area, public records show.

Some fellow activists were taken aback by the real estate revelations.

Hawk Newsome, the head of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City, called for “an independent investigation” to find out how the global network spends its money.

“If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes,” he said. “It’s really sad because it makes people doubt the validity of the movement and overlook the fact that it’s the people that carry this movement.”

Last year, Khan-Cullors and spouse Janaya Khan ventured to Georgia to acquire a fourth home — a “custom ranch” on 3.2 rural acres in Conyers featuring a private airplane hangar with a studio apartment above it, and the use of a 2,500-foot “paved/grass” community runway that can accommodate small airplanes.

The three-bedroom, two-bath house, about 30 minutes from Atlanta, has an indoor swimming pool and a separate “RV shop” that can accommodate the repair of a mobile home or small aircraft, according to the real estate listing.

The Peach State retreat was purchased in January 2020 for $415,000, two years after the publication of Khan-Cullors’ best-selling memoir, “When They Call You a Terrorist.”

In October, the activist signed “a multi-platform” deal with Warner Bros. Television Group to help produce content for “black voices who have been historically marginalized,” she said in a statement.

It is not known how much Khan-Cullors received in compensation in either deal.

For a communist, Ms. Cullors sure does engage in a lot of capitalism. Hilarious.

I’ve been warning you about this for more than a year now. – CNN is now even writing about it overtly. That is the inevitable effort by Democrats to not let a good crisis go to waste, and to use the COVID-19 pandemic as an opening to force the nation down the path towards the Party goal of becoming a communist paradise.

Now that they have their shiny new Sock Puppet-in-Chief safely installed into the White House, the Democrats are putting their project to transform the nation into full gear, knowing that China Joe is incapable of throwing up any resistance, even on the off-chance he figured out what was going on. Which he isn’t capable of doing, and we all know it.

In a story published at its website on Sunday, CNN glowingly lays out how the “progressives”, i.e., communists in the White House are going about transforming the country and there’s not a damn thing any of us can do about it.

From the story:

As they chart the country’s tentative economic recovery, White House officials see possibility in the wake of the pandemic — an opportunity to dive full bore into pursuing the most transformative progressive policies in decades.

Holed up in offices in the cavernous Eisenhower Executive Office Building, top White House economic officials are combing through reams of data from the dramatic emergency measures deployed to address the dual economic and public health crises created by the pandemic, the kind of real-time information progressive economists have only been able to dream about during past economic downturns.

They contend that data shows their policy priorities are having a tangible effect — and that it helps make the case for doubling down in the form of a massive infrastructure and jobs package, even if Republicans aren’t on board.

It’s not just that the series of unprecedented measures implemented over the course of the last year, punctuated by President Joe Biden $1.9 trillion Covid relief package, are helping to address the pandemic, though that’s what the numbers show, said Charlie Anderson, director of economic policy and budget for Biden’s Covid-19 response team.

“But (it) also sets in place the foundation for us to do what we should’ve been doing all along,” Anderson said in an interview with CNN.

The result is an administration that is hardly running from the GOP attack that they are going too big, several White House officials told CNN over the past several weeks. Biden and his team say it’s a moment that cannot be missed, one that should be driven by addressing what they view as long-standing structural deficiencies in the economy.

[End]

Here’s the great irony in that last part: The “longstanding structural deficiencies in the economy” that these communists want to address are the remaining parts of it that they don’t control. You know, like the ability of “Marxist” leaders of their party’s domestic terrorist group BLM being able to invest in high-dollar real estate and capitalist stuff like that.

You can read through the rest of CNN’s drivel and not find a word about how Biden’s policies have already created the highest gasoline prices in 3 years, have driven up the prices of food at the local supermarket by 20% in just a few months or have created a major humanitarian catastrophe on the southern border. This is all just about 1,000 words of typical state-run media cheerleader drivel, exactly what you would expect from CNN if you’ve been paying a shred of attention in recent years.

What the Biden people in the White House are doing is taking our country on a rapid lurch towards becoming Venezuela, and they’re using COVID-19 as their platform for doing it.

That’s the truth, and we shouldn’t be shy about saying it.

That is all.

60 Minutes’ Smear Job on Ron DeSantis Collapses

60 Minutes provided a prime example of the utter corruption of our nation’s media establishment on Sunday with a smear of Ron DeSantis. – In the story, 60 Minutes fake reporter Sharon Alfonsi accused the Florida Governor of engaging in a “pay for play” scheme in which the Publix chain of pharmacy/grocery stores was awarded a contract to become a distributor of the various COVID vaccines in exchange for a $100,000 contribution to the DeSantis gubernatorial campaign in 2018. 60 Minutes made no effort to explain how, in 2018 when the contribution was made, anyone at Publix could have known about a pandemic that would take place in 2020, but hey, this is fake news we’re talking about here – logic and facts play no role. Only the fake narrative matters.

Alfonsi’s piece included film taken during a DeSantis presser in which she accused the Governor and he gave a full and complete answer. Naturally, Alfonsi and her editors at 60 Minutes carefully edited the clip in order to eliminate all of the actual facts of what happened. Take a look:

Publix, naturally outraged, responded to the 60 Minutes smear job with the following statement:

“The irresponsible suggestion that there was a connection between campaign contributions made to Governor DeSantis and our willingness to join other pharmacies in support of the state’s vaccine distribution efforts is absolutely false and offensive,” the supermarket company said on Monday in a statement. “We are proud of our pharmacy associates for administering more than 1.5 million doses of vaccine to date and for joining other retailers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia to do our part to help our communities emerge from the pandemic.”

Meanwhile, the 60 Minutes smear has created such public outrage in Florida that even Democrats are coming to the Governor’s defense. First, Jared Moskowitz, a Democrat who is serving his 3rd term as Director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management, issued this tweet excoriating CBS for its intentionally false smear job:

Next, Dave Kerner, the Democrat Mayor of Palm Beach County, issued this statement blasting the corrupt 60 Minutes/CBS crew for its false reporting: “The reporting was not just based on bad information — it was intentionally false. I know this because I offered to provide my insight into Palm Beach County’s vaccination efforts and 60 minutes declined,” Kerner declared. “They know that the Governor came to Palm Beach County and met with me and the County Administrator and we asked to expand the state’s partnership with Publix to Palm Beach County. We also discussed our own local plans to expand mass vaccinations centers throughout the county, which the Governor has been incredibly supportive. We asked and he delivered. They had that information, and they left it out because it kneecaps their narrative.”

Oof.

Note that Kerner had volunteered to be interviewed by Alfonsi, but she refused to talk to him, knowing he would destroy the divisive narrative she was trying to create:

You want to know why I have been writing for 25 years that the utterly corrupt, Soviet-style fake news media establishment is the single greatest threat to our country’s survival? This smear job, designed to divide the people of Florida, is a textbook case.

It is crucial to understand that CBS News and Alfonsi created this false narrative out of whole cloth in an effort to benefit their masters in the Democrat Party. There is simply no question that DeSantis has run circles around all other governors of big population states in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, repeatedly going against the official guidance coming from Anthony Fauci and the CDC ghouls while doing so. Florida’s numbers of cases and death rate from the viral gift from China have vastly out-performed the records of blue states that have slavishly conformed to the federal edicts, and that makes the Democrats quite uncomfortable, especially given Andrew Cuomo’s ongoing scandals and the recall efforts being mounted against Gavin Newsom and Christine Whitmer.

Even worse for the Democrats, DeSantis’s performance under pressure during the COVID crisis has made him the obvious successor to Donald Trump as the GOP’s 2024 presidential nominee. This reality makes him the prime Republican target for media smears like this one on behalf of the Democrats.

Because of this competing dynamic between red states and blue states, the corrupt propaganda media has spent the last year making up a series of false narratives about Florida’s performance in efforts to damage DeSantis, culminating in this despicable smear by 60 Minutes. They do this for one simple reason: The Democrat Party demands it. It’s the same reason why the media mounted a set of smears defaming Texas Governor Greg Abbott when he rescinded his idiotic, useless mask mandate in early March.

The philosophy of the Democrat Party has always, from its very founding, been to divide this country in order to rule it. That’s why it created the Ku Klux Klan following the Civil War, it’s why Lincoln was murdered, it’s why every “great” Democrat president in history has been a highly-divisive figure and it’s why it created BLM and Antifa to serve as its domestic terror apparatus.

The mission of corrupt, Soviet-style propaganda outlets like CBS News, CNN and MSNBC is to serve their Democrat Party masters by keeping us as divided as possible. That’s why they represent a clear and present existential threat to our country.

That is all.
