The loudmouth liberal preaches on the evils of capitalism but owns NINE HOUSES!
Detroit Jalopnik reported:

What exactly does Michael Moore need with $50 million and nine houses? We’ll never know, but we can hazard a guess, thanks some details from the documentarian’s pending divorce.

“Roger & Me” is required Jalopnik viewing, if not for the devastating consequences of one town’s reliance on the auto industry then at least for the spectacular displays of wealth said industry affords. So it’s a little strange that the man who has built a career criticizing capitalist culture is very much a capitalist himself.

Moore and his wife, Kathleen Glynn, will end their marriage of 22 years this week in a courthouse in northern Michigan. It’s there where the couple shared a 10,000-square-foot home on Torch Lake, an affluent tourist community worlds removed from his Flint hometown. Moore initiated the divorce, records show.

The house, as well as eight other residences, a $50 million fortune amassed from “Roger & Me,” “Bowling For Columbine,” “Fahrenheit 9/11″ and a slew of other documentaries and books, and other assets, are at stake between the two.

The Detroit News reports that the house, nicknamed “The House that Roger Built,” was the final straw between Glynn — whom he met at a muckraking newspaper in Flint in the in the 1970s — and Moore. They bought the home in 1995, but Moore says Glynn’s constant spending to expand the lakefront home contradicted his message of being a champion for the little guy.

Residents who passed by in their boats monitored the home for the latest growth, they said.

“He is not a common man. No way,” resident Nancy Schwalm said while having lunch with two relatives at Lulu’s Bistro in Bellaire.

The mansion played a starring role in the divorce pleadings.

In one filing, Moore complained the expansion cost five times more than Glynn said it would. She handled the couple’s personal and business expenses, he said.

OK, OK. So maybe they got out of control with one house. But I’m having a hard time believing that Moore, who once told CNN’s Larry King that “those who invest their money wrongly or, you know, don’t run their business the right way, then they don’t do well,” was wholly opposed to his wife’s spending. As he noted in the divorce paperwork, they both had equal access to the money they earned.

Two years ago Michael Moore refused to tell Piers Morgan on CNN that he was in the one-percent.

Staples Bows to Big Labor Boycott

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014 by Kyle Olson

It looks like students today might actually be learning something from teachers unions: being a bully will get you what you want.

EAGnews.org reports:

The office supply chain Staples Inc. announced this week it is canceling a pilot program with the U.S. Postal Service to offer post office services in more than 80 stores after the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers encouraged teachers to boycott its stores, Reuters reports.

“Staples will continue to explore and test products and services that meet our customers’ needs,” Staples spokeswoman Carrie McElwee told the news service in an email.

The NEA and AFT boycotts had nothing to do with educating students or any other education issue, but rather was a show of solidarity with the American Postal Workers Union, which strongly objected to the plan because it could have replaced some top-dollar postal positions with lower paid non-unionized Staples workers…

While students across the country are struggling to graduate from schools staffed with AFT and NEA teachers, the unions are focused on organized labor’s never-ending war against America’s capitalist system. The boycott was a strategic political move designed to help the country’s Big Labor coalition retain power and control at a time when its clout is quickly slipping away.

It’s the same strategy teachers unions use in school districts across the country to bully local school board members to approve spending tied to union contracts that local communities can’t afford.

Allen West Weighs in On NAACP Attacks on Black Conservatives

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014 by Jim Hoft

Former Congressman Allen West (R-FL) lashed out at the NAACP after black conservatives were very publicly attacked at the conference this week as reported at Progressives Today.
From the Allen B. West website:

NAACP stands for National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and at the turn of the century, Booker T. Washington had a three-pronged agenda for their advancement: education, entrepreneurship, and self-reliance. Those three values completely align with conservative principles.

At the NAACP conference this week, a member was quite upset that black conservatives were there at all, including Deneen Borelli and CL Bryant, and made it clear they were not welcome at the event. This video is quite telling because it provides a clear window into what ails the black community: the advancement of grievance mongering and the welfare state.

‘War on Humans’: New Film Exposes the Real Goals of the Radical Environmentalists

Monday, July 21st, 2014 by Ben Velderman

If you believe the ultimate goal of the radical environmental movement is to stop “man-made climate change” by getting people to drive electric cars and by taxing companies for carbon emissions tax, guess again.

A recently released documentary reveals the tree-huggers’ real aim is to “save the planet” by greatly reducing the human population – perhaps by as much as 90 percent.

“The War on Humans” is a 30-minute film produced by the Discovery Institute, a Seattle-based think tank that deals with issues relating to science, culture and bioethics. In the film, director John West exposes the dark side of America’s extreme environmentalists, who reject the idea that human beings should hold a special place in nature over the “non-human animals.”

More to the point: The extremists believe humans are a “plague on the planet” and the only cure is massive depopulation. To achieve that ambitious plan, the radicals have developed a long-range strategy for carrying it out, as “War on Humans” makes clear.

Phase One is a propaganda campaign to get people – particularly school children and university students – to buy into the premise that human beings aren’t inherently better than other specious. In fact, humans might be worse because their selfish actions are responsible for destroying the earth.

To that end, the environmentalists have been using the nation’s education system to convince the upcoming generation that human activity is the sole cause of climate change. They’re also communicating their “humans are destroying the planet” message through popular Hollywood movies, most recently 2014’s “Noah.”

Majority Leader McCarthy: House Will Secure Border and Reunite Families

At a press conference in Peoria, IL for former congressman Bobby Schilling, new House majority leader Kevin McCarthy stated that the House of Representatives will pass measures in the coming days and weeks that will help secure the southern border with Mexico and that the thousands of illegal immigrant families will be reunited.

Estimates are that 57,000 unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors have entered the US in the last few months, many coming believing that the Obama administration won’t deport them and will instead grant them amnesty, and that doesn’t even include the much larger number of adult illegal immigrants that have been coming over the border as well.

A working group of lawmakers established by Speaker John Boehner is looking at crafting an emergency appropriations bill that would include sending the National Guard to the Texas-Mexico border, making changes to a 2008 law that inhibits the speedy deportation of individuals from Central and South America, bringing in more immigration Judges, as well as measures to further secure the border.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz has his own legislation in the Senate that would further address the problems on the border.

Shock Video>>> Black Conservatives Met With Hostility, Harassed at Annual NAACP Convention

Monday, July 21st, 2014 by Jim Hoft

IMG_7774

The NAACP is holding their 105th annual gathering   in Las Vegas, Nevada this week. This year’s theme? “All in for justice and equality.” And what better venue could there be for fighting against injustice and inequality then a multimillion dollar Las Vegas resort, the lavish Mandalay Bay.

After years of rejection, black conservatives were allowed a single booth at the convention this year, but they’re still locked out of speaking at the convention.

As minimal and restricted as their presence is at the NAACP event, black conservatives are still met with open hostility by NAACP faithful because they fail to toe the Progressive line. Yesterday, conservatives Deneen Borelli, director of outreach at FreedomWorks, CL Bryant, a fellow at FreedomWorks, were harassed in the convention hall just because they are conservatives.

This was an awful display of intolerance by a group that claims to fight for inclusion and tolerance in society.

Apparently, if you do not toe the liberal line you are not welcome at the NAACP.

On Monday, these shunned black conservatives will hold their own “Empower Liberty Summit” in the same hotel, directly across the hall from the NAACP event. It’s the only way their voices can be heard.

Communist Rag Gushes Over Elizabeth Warren

Sunday, July 20th, 2014 by Kyle Olson

Peoples World – the news outlet of the Communist Party USA – can’t say enough good things about Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

In an article about a campaign appearance for a Senate candidate in West Virginia, People’s World author John Case wrote:

Senator Warren characterizes what others call her rising “rock star” public persona as more like a lightening bolt from another world on an unsuspecting, plain spoken, ordinary American of modest means who fate placed in a fortuitous position to exercise true citizenship. Duty called her to raise her voice against the massive financial rip offs of recent decades. As an economics professor at Harvard specializing in bankruptcies, she was in a unique, expert position to play a key role in the financial reforms that eventually passed Congress after the 2008 crisis.

The reason why Elizabeth Warren is a rock star, however, is much more than a matter of expertise in finance. It’s because of her demonstrated integrity under fire; it’s because of her refusal to play the “Washington insiders” game where you have access to powerful people as long as you don’t criticize other insiders.

Instead, she kept telling the truth about the financial crisis and its causes. And she did so without being mean-spirited in the face of both administration blandishments and vicious smear tactics by Republican spitball artists. She was doing it again in big red, white and blue colors yesterday. She conveys a trust and connection with ordinary people that Hillary Clinton, the presumptive frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination, will have difficulty matching.

 It’s a good indication of just how far-left Warren is and the types of policies she’d implement if she was president.
