Billionaire Republican Donor Jumps Ship

There is a line in the movie iRobot, where the main character, played by Will Smith, is arguing with another character. At one point he becomes so frustrated that he says to her that she must be “the dumbest smart person” he’s ever met.

And that’s the point of this article, or more to the point, the question it revolves around.

Do you ever wonder how otherwise brilliant business people can be so darn ignorant or so monumentally naïve? Well I certainly do. But it seems these days to be becoming much more common place. And I think a lot just simply has to do with otherwise smart peoples’ dislike and discomfort of the Trump public persona.

Count Ohio billionaire and longtime Republican donor Les Wexner, as one of these. “Wexner, the CEO of retail conglomerate L Brands, which owns Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works, announced at a leadership summit in Columbus on Thursday that he ‘won’t support this nonsense in the Republican Party’ anymore,” writes the HuffPo.

What does he mean by nonsense? In a word – Trump, but I think it’s a little more than just that. read more

Earlier this year, we heard how scientists from the University of California San Diego had developed a flexible ultrasound patch that allows users to see the inner structure of irregular-shaped objects. Well, now they’ve made one that measures a patient’s blood pressure from deep within the body. read more

WND Exclusive – THE POLITICIZATION OF HURRICANE MARIA

On Aug. 28, 2018, the Atlantic published a piece declaring: “A Year After Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico Finally Knows How Many People Died.”

The subtitle adds: “A new, definitive study from George Washington University finds that almost 3,000 people lost their lives – and highlights the government’s failures before and after the storm.”

No bias there, right?. But to which government are they referring? Well, since the Atlantic.com leans decidedly left, we can guess which government, or more succinctly, which administration.

But what should first jump off the page is that GW University had to do a study to determine the figure. And the figure is deceiving at best. President Trump is correct to discount the 3,000 person mark. read more

Video Podcast – Trump Worse than Hitler – Gay Federal Reserve – Feinstein October Surprise

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

An establishment Republican “strategist” went on MSNBC to decry president Trump by basically saying that if he had a time machine, he would rather travel back and change Trump rather than stop Adolf Hitler.

The Federal Reserve now has its first openly gay female bank head. Hooray for the Fed!

Senator Diane Feinstein is attempting to “October Surprise” Trump’s supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh with a letter accusing him of sexual misconduct in high school. Better late than never, eh Di-Fi. read more

Conservative Black is a Racist – Because he Has to Be

from the American Thinker:

Media Matters vs. Blacks

Having dispatched Alex Jones from most every public platform on the face of the earth, the left is looking to engage more targets.. With an insatiable appetite to remove conservative thought from the public square, they have found a new whipping boy to thrash. His name is Jesse Lee Peterson, and his face is being plastered on liberal “Most Wanted” posters for his “white supremacist content.” read more
