George Soros’ Radical Criminal Justice Reform Is Undermining Law and Order and Reaping Poison Fruit
George Soros is funding candidates across the country for the office of district attorney, as prosecutors file charges against accused criminals (or they can drop charges). US Attorney William McSwain said that criminal justice reform should be legislated with broad public support instead of implementing Soros’ radical ‘reform’ agenda. Philadelphia Prosecutor Larry Krasner, a leftist prosecutor funded by Soros, provides a case study of skyrocketing violent crime that has resulted from the implementation of Soros’ radical ‘reform’ policies.
The News Industry Generates $4.7 Billion for Google and Publishers Want a Cut of the Action
A study by the News Media Alliance showed that Google made $4.7 billion in 2018 from the news industry. David Chavern, the president of the alliance which represents 2,0000 newspapers across the country, claims that they deserve a cut of the $4.7 billion in profits that Google makes from news content that generates revenue for the tech giant for free while publishers receive little in return.
The New York Times writes in a recent article that a new
study shows that Google made approximately $4.7 billion from the News
industry in 2018. The News Media Alliance, which represents 2,000
newspapers, believes that journalists deserve a cut from the Masters of
In an article titled “Google Made $4.7 Billion From the News Industry in 2018, Study Says,” the New York Timesstates
that a new study from the News Media Alliance has estimated that Google
made $4.7 billion from the News industry last year. The president and
chief executive of the alliance, which represents 2,0000 newspapers
across the country, has now claimed that journalists deserve a cut of
that $4.7 billion.
The Times writes:
It’s more than the combined ticket sales
of the last two “Avengers” movies. It’s more than what virtually any
professional sports team is worth. And it’s the amount that Google made
from the work of news publishers in 2018 via search and Google News,
according to a study to be released on Monday by the News Media
The journalists who create that content
deserve a cut of that $4.7 billion, said David Chavern, the president
and chief executive of the alliance, which represents more than 2,000
newspapers across the country, including The New York Times.
“They make money off this arrangement,” Mr. Chavern said, “and there needs to be a better outcome for news publishers.”
That $4.7 billion is nearly as much as
the $5.1 billion brought in by the United States news industry as a
whole from digital advertising last year — and the News Media Alliance
cautioned that its estimate for Google’s income was conservative. For
one thing, it does not count the value of the personal data the company
collects on consumers every time they click on an article like this one.
Terrance C.Z. Egger, the chief executive of Philadelphia Inquirer PBC, told the Times: “The
study blatantly illustrates what we all know so clearly and so
painfully. The current dynamics in the relationships between the
platforms and our industry are devastating.” The study by the alliance
has been made public ahead of the House subcommittee hearing on Tuesday
on the relationship between Silicon Valley tech firms and the media. But
Google has taken issue with some of the report’s findings:
Google contested the study’s
findings, which were disputed in several posts on Twitter. “These
back-of-the envelope calculations are inaccurate,” the company said in
statement, adding that “the overwhelming number of news queries do not
show ads.” The company said Google news and search sends over 10 billion
clicks to publishers’ websites each month, driving subscriptions and ad
revenue. “We’ve worked very hard to be a collaborative and supportive
technology and advertising partner to news publishers worldwide.
Data from the report by the alliance was
partly taken from a study by the economics consulting firm Keystone
Strategy which relies on statistics that were made public in 2008 when a
Google executive estimated that Google News generated $100 million in
revenue. The study also notes that the company’s revenue has grown
exponentially since 2008.
Guatemalan Official Says Mexico Incentivizing Central Americans to Migrate to the US
The Guatemalan Minister of Governance Enrique Degenhart is calling out the Mexican government for its role in enticing Guatemalans and others from Central American countries to leave their homes by offering benefits to them, like work permits and visas, while they migrate north toward the United States.
The Guatemalan Minister of Governance Enrique Degenhart is calling out the Mexican government for its role in the migrant crisis.
me start by saying that our macroeconomic numbers in the country are
very good. We have actually the lowest criminal rates in the country
that we have had in the past 15 or 20 years which means that it’s
probably not a factor of economics or security. What we have identified
and this is part of what we have to work with is the ‘pull factor’ and a
mix of cultural situations that are happening in the country. When I
talk about the pull factor, i’m talking about our neighbor, Mexico –that
unfortunately has been offering different kinds of benefits, admin
benefits like visas and other kinds of work permits and situations that
basically enhance the interests of our Guatemalans on using Mexico as a
route to the U.S.
The U.S.-Mexico border has reached a breaking point, with the number migrants seeking access into America increasing continuously since January.
Colonel MacGregor Says Leftist Democrats Want Mass Immigration to Create Voting Block for Permanent Power
Mexico agreed to send 6,000 of its troops to protect the US border under the threat of progressive tariffs. Retired Army Colonel Douglas MacGregor said that the new agreement with Mexico will only offer temporary relief as Mexico does not have an interest in stopping illegal immigration into the US because it offloads its discontented citizens and criminals into America. He said that Mexico is a "narco state" ruled by six drug cartels that control all the institutions. The drug cartels want to continue bringing drugs into th US. Colonel MacGregor said that due to demographic change, Latinos are the base of the Democratic Party, and the goal is to transform the rest of American into a facsimile of leftist California. The real goal of mass immigration is to create demographic change that will make the left the permanent power inside the US. [/su_note
California Governor Gavin Newsom Offers Medical Care Benefits to Illegal Aliens
Far-left Governor Gavin Newsom is signing a proposed $213.5 billion budget that includes extending eligibility to California’s Medicaid program low-income illegal immigrants between the ages of 19 and 25. The program will cost an estimated $98 million per year to cover about 90,000 young illegal aliens. Democrats in the state plan to pay for the handouts by taxing those who do not have health insurance, similar to Obamacare’s individual mandate penalty. The program may allow elderly illegal aliens to join in the future.
Democrat state lawmakers in progressive California have agreed to a plan that would extend health benefits to qualifying illegal immigrants residing in the state.
The legislature has a June 15 deadline and is expected to approve the deal in the coming days. It essentially extends eligibility to California’s Medicaid program to young low-income illegal immigrants between the ages of 19 and 25. The move is part of a broader budget plan, which clocks in around $213 billion.
Expanding California’s Medicaid program to low-income illegals would
cost the state about $98 million per year. According to the Associated
Press, roughly 90,000 will qualify.
“California believes that health is a fundamental right,” State Sen. Holly Mitchell (D) said, according to the news outlet.
A number of Democrat state lawmakers wanted to take it a step
further, offering coverage for all illegals in the state, but Democrat
Gov. Gavin Newsom rejected the proposal, citing rising costs.
The agreement also includes assistance for middle-income families. A
family of four making $150,000 could qualify for a $100 a month subsidy
from the government to help cover the cost of their insurance premium.
Democrats in the state plan to pay for the handouts, in part, by
taxing those who do not have health insurance. This is, in essence,
another version of Obamacare’s individual mandate penalty, which the
Supreme Court upheld as a tax in a critical ruling in 2012. However, it
a point of contention in lower courts. Republicans in Congress worked
with President Trump to scrap what they deemed to be the
unconstitutional penalty in 2017.
California lawmakers say these moves are all part of the state’s
wide-ranging effort to get everyone in the state – including those
residing there unlawfully – covered. This comes at the time of a severe
homelessness crisis in the state, particularly in Los Angeles County.
The number of homeless individuals on the streets of Los Angeles has skyrocketed during the last year.
