  1. I used to shop at Penzey's spice stores in Chicago. The best spices you can buy! So all of you liberal foodies support this company by ordering online. Wisconsin Spice Company Spends More Than $100K On Pro-Impeachment Ads Wauwatosa-Based Penzeys Spices Behind Only Trump Campaign In National Spending By Laurel White Published: Wednesday, October 9, 2019, 4:05pm A Wisconsin-based spice company spent more than $100,000 in the first week of October on a social media advertisement calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. According to advertising data released by Facebook, Penzeys Spices, a Wauwatosa-based spice company, spent $109,933 between Oct. 1 and Oct. 7 posting and reposting an ad that called Trump's phone call with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky a "mandatory open and shut case for the impeachment." The advertisement also says the Republican Party has "turned its back on conservative values and has instead come to embrace the 'textbook' racism of white nationalism." According to an analysis published Wednesday by the news site Axios, Penzeys' spending on the impeachment-related ad between Sept. 25 and Oct. 5 was second only to the Trump campaign’s own ads about impeachment. In comparison, Democrat Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign spent $20,000 on impeachment ads in the same time period, according to the report. This isn’t Penzeys' first foray into political activism. But company CEO Bill Penzey said this has been their most successful political ad to date. The post has gotten nearly 250,000 likes and 43,000 shares, tipping it into "viral" territory in the realm of social media. "This one seems to have really caught a wind," Penzey said. The CEO attributes the ad’s particular success to shifting attitudes about President Trump. "I think people are starting to wake up and starting to actually see who this president is," he said. According to Facebook data, Penzeys' has spent about $2.4 million on Facebook ads since May 2018. In July, the company used social media to promote a "Russian-style" seasoning called "Tsar Dust Memories." That ad was posted in the wake of special counsel Robert Mueller's testimony to Congress. It said, "this administration’s collusion with the Russian government was not a nothing burger" and pointed customers to a recipe for a "Tsardust Memories Nothing Burger." Penzey said the most recent ad buy, which he says is now up to $124,000, isn’t a huge amount compared to what the company used to spend on mailing catalogues, which it ceased doing in recent years. "It's a sizable amount, but it’s not us reaching beyond what we'd normally do," he said. Penzey acknowledged his company has gotten some critical feedback from conservative customers concerned with the company's outspoken political stances, but said he has no plans to change the company's advertising strategy. "I think in this coming election there’s going to be a lot of opportunities for businesses that have values to share those values with their customers," he said. "And I think that’s going to work out well for the businesses that do."
  2. According to the news reports, the people waiting outside were protesters. https://www.politicususa.com/2019/10/10/trump-greeted-empty-seats-minnesota-rally-impeachment.html Trump Is Greeted By Rows Of Empty Seats In Minnesota As Impeachment Sinks His Presidency Donald Trump tried to save his crumbling presidencyby riling up the MAGA mob at a rally in Minnesota on Thursday night, but he was greeted by rows of empty seats. According to KMSP-TV/FOX 9 political reporter Theo Keith, the president’s campaign manager even took to the stage minutes before the rally’s start time to claim that there were only empty seats because so many people were getting food at concession stands. But the picture shared on Keith’s Twitter account shows rows and rows of empty seats in the upper level, making the concession stand explanation laughable. When Trump took to the podium, he claimed that the crowd “just set a record,” but Vox journalist Aaron Rupar pointed out that “the upper level of the arena isn’t full.” Another Twitter user posted a picture of the rows of empty upper-level seats, noting that Trump had claimed earlier that more than 70,000 people expressed interest in attending the rally. ‘Thousands’ of protesters turned out To make matters worse for the sinking president, there appeared to be a large number of demonstrators who turned out in the rain to protest him. Video footage and pictures from one Twitter user shows that “thousands” gathered to tell Trump that he wasn’t welcome in Minneapolis. With his presidency at risk of collapsing under the weight of its own corruption and incompetence, it’s clear that Donald Trump saw this rally as a chance to show that he can still pack an arena to the rafters. In Minnesota on Thursday night, he failed to do that.
  3. Great video showing the media bias against Bernie:
  4. I watched the video. There is usually silence when dealing with a person who is obviously mentally ill. People don't want to trigger someone who might be armed, and possibly violent. They handled it perfectly. AOC ignored her, moved on, and the woman was quietly removed.
  5. Nobody was sympathetic, or in agreement. They just were trying to deal with a severely mentally ill person in the audience.
  6. They did the same with the polling numbers. They deleted him and showed other candidates that had lower polling numbers. https://www.forbes.com/sites/christopherrim/2019/10/04/do-the-math-2020-is-a-six-person-race/#16dd716062b0 Despite spending the last few weeks of the quarter fundraising, Biden came in at a dismal fourth in fundraising, below Sanders, Warren, and Buttigieg. So is it back to a four-person race? Well, I would argue that, if we’re going to include Buttigieg, we have to include Harris, who is polling close to where he is, qualified for the November debates as quickly as he did, and, although she raised less than him, didn’t experience a dip in donations from Q2 to Q3 the way he and Biden have. The media seems comfortable with this argument as well—the latest trend has been to focus on the five candidates who have qualified for November’s debate. But there’s still over a month for qualifying polls to come out and three candidates already have three of the four polls needed. So the media, when reporting these Q3 numbers and generally speaking about the race, has begun to acknowledge that if it’s not a two-person race, it’s probably closer to a six-person race. Only one candidate who hasn’t qualified yet is really still in the running. He’s definitely worth including in the conversation, and outlets like MSNBC and CNN have been featuring him with the frontrunners. Although this candidate is polling below the top five, he’s significantly improved in his fundraising over last quarter, and is only one poll away from qualifying for the next debate. That’s right, it’s… Cory Booker? Wait. That can’t be right. Isn’t he polling at less than 2% nationally? Didn’t he only raise half of what Harris did ($6 million to her $11.6 million), and wasn’t $2 million of that only after a last-ditch fundraising effortwhere he said he was ten days away from having to drop out? And isn’t there another candidate who is actually polling close to Harris, and who raised 86% of what Harris did (aka 66% of what Biden did)? A candidate who is actually trending up in donations (unlike Harris, Biden, and Buttigieg), and up in the polls (unlike Harris, Biden, and Booker)? That’s right, Andrew Yang is polling at 3.5% nationally and raised $10 million this quarter—and CNN and MSNBC are rightly getting called out for pretending he doesn’t exist. But this isn’t just about one graphic—Cory Booker is currently ranked fourth in weekly news coverage, despite polling at eighth and fundraising at seventh. It’s not just Yang who’s missing out—Harris and Buttigieg are also polling and fundraising better than Booker but getting covered less. This isn’t to say Booker should be doing anything differently—but that the media needs to realign its focus. As a fellow Asian-American education entrepreneur, I’ll admit that I may be paying closer attention to Andrew Yang than I would otherwise. But I don’t think you have to be particularly invested in him as a candidate to notice the disparities that are happening here. In fact, I think it’s precisely because I’m not particularly entrenched in politics that I’m noticing this while long-standing analysts are still getting their feathers ruffled imagining that a mayor or an entrepreneur could be polling higher than an established senator, keeping a closer eye on the ‘endorsement primary’ than the actual primary. So as a math enthusiast who looked at the polls and the fundraising and can see whose numbers are going up and whose are going down—Yang’s numbers are going up quickly.
  7. Joshua Brown, key witness in Amber Guyger murder trial and neighbor of Botham Jean, shot to death in Dallas https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/05/us/botham-jean-neighbor-killed/index.html A man who was a key witness in the murder trial of former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger was fatally shot Friday in the parking lot of his apartment complex, according to attorney Lee Merritt. Joshua Brown was a neighbor of shooting victim Botham Jean at the South Side Flats apartments. Jean was sitting in his unit in September 2018 when Guyger walked inside and shot him to death. Brown says he lived directly across the hall from Jean. Merritt, attorney for Jean's family, told CNN he spoke to Brown's mother who confirmed the death. Dallas police responded to a call for a shooting at the Atera Apartments complex around 10:30 p.m. Friday, police told CNN. Officers were flagged down by witnesses who directed them to a victim who was lying on the ground of the apartment parking lot with multiple gunshot wounds. The victim was transported to Parkland Memorial Hospital, where he died from his injuries, according to a statement from Dallas Police. Witnesses told police they heard several gunshots and saw a silver four-door sedan speed out of the parking lot, police said. There is no suspect information at this time, police said. Merritt wrote in a Facebook post Saturday night that the medical examiner told him Brown was shot in the mouth and chest. "He was ambushed at his apartment complex as he got out of his car and shot at close range," Merritt wrote, adding that Brown's mother asked him to "do whatever it takes to get to the bottom" of her son's murder. "She suspects foul play and it is difficult to rule it out," Merritt wrote. "He had no known enemies. He worked for a living. He was not in the streets. We need answers. Immediately." 'He said it could have been him' Brown said during his testimony he was originally from Jacksonville, Florida and moved to Texas in 2008. He attended college in southern Florida where studied interdisciplinary sciences. He tried to play football after college, but got into roofing. He says he was a roofing contractor for a few years. At the time of his testimony, Brown said he was managing four Airbnb's in Los Angeles, Atlanta and Dallas.
  8. Fascinating documentary about the links between suppression of research by Big Pharma. The filmmaker was diagnosed with MS in 1995 at the age of 19. His father researched and placed him on a diet to fight the disease. He has been symptom free for over 20 years. A cardiovascular doctor noticed that 57 out 59 MS patients had clogged jugular veins, and used the balloon therapy to open up the blood supply to the brain. He was threatened that if he continued to do non Big Pharma drug therapies, that they would end his career. All of the patients that had the therapy were vastly improved. https://www.amazon.com/Living-Proof-Matt-Embry/dp/B07D7PF9HR His website that does not accept donations, and all information is free. He was threatened with a lawsuit by the MS Society that was largely funded by Big Pharma. http://www.mshope.com
  9. An economic PAC that supports President Donald Trump claimed responsibility for a woman who told Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez people needed to start eating babies because of climate change. On Thursday night, the Lyndon LaRouchePAC retweeted the video with a message of their own. "LaRouchePAC trolls AOC, AOC doesn't rule out eating babies," the PAC wrote on Twitter. Newsweek reached out to the LaRouchePAC but did not receive a response in time for publication. LaRouchePac is an economic PAC that advocates for the policies championed by Lyndon LaRouche, a conspiracy theorist and political activist who ran for president multiple times.
  10. Does anybody even bother to do a Google search on those stupid spam emails that Right Wingers post?
  11. Nancy Pelosi's son Paul Pelosi Jr. (who went to Ukraine in 2017) was a board member of Viscoil and executive at its related NRGLab Apparently, they are a GREEN ENERGY COMPANY. NRGLab Pte. Ltd. is a science-driven company based in Singapore. The company researches and develops alternative-energy technologies for clean, reliable and affordable electrical power on a global scale. Scientists with NRGLab have developed the technology for generating energy from environmental heat. Low-cost electricity is now affordable for everyone, using the energy generated by NRGLab technology. We are now capable of producing environmentally friendly generators (SH boxes), which are easily scalable from 1 watt to 200kw per unit. Our company is now in the process of demonstrating to multiple governments that using oil, coal and gas for energy generation is 3 times more expensive then energy production with NRGLab’s clean, efficient and affordable SH Boxes. The company’s generators (SH boxes) create an energy conversion that is more efficient and less expensive, while simplifying the conversion process. Generators (SH boxes) will enable the price of producing electricity to go down to $0.03 per kW. In other scientific projects, NRGLab has also developed the patent-pending “Eco-SV” Method for increasing the power efficiency of gas turbine generators. The NRGLab solution for boosting gas turbine generator performance shows conclusively that electrical efficiency levels of 53-72 percent are achieved with the Eco-SV method, compared to 33-35 percent with conventional turbines. The company’s additional projects include a strategic partnership and investment from Viscoil Holdings (www.viscoil.com) to recycle waste materials into eco-friendly diesel fuel. NRGLab has obtained an exclusive license for the Viscoil Technology for the South East Asian region for all raw materials. Coal will be recycled in Indonesia, waste engine oil will be recycled in Malaysia, and agricultural wastes will be recycled in Singapore and Malaysia. In Singapore, for example, NRGLab is able to recycle 2,000 tons of waste daily into 600-800 m3 of fuel.
  12. Aeroscraft, the future of luxuryairsips (picres) BYMES MARTIN | JULY 17, 2012 Worldwide Aeros Corp. 1 Aeroscraft: The future of luxury travel? A hybrid airship coming soon may be the future of luxury travel. It's an airborne hotel with large staterooms, dining areas, theaters, and casinos. The Aeroscraft is being planned by Worldwide Aeros Corporation and is the result of 25 years of work. It's descended from the canceled DARPA WALRUS Hybrid Ultra Large Aircraft (HULA) airship, a transport vehicle that aimed to carry as much as 500 tons of cargo but was cancelled in 2010. Aeros says the Aeroscraft family's smallest member -- the rigid-structure, 180 passenger, 20-ton capacity ML866 -- will be 310 feet in length, have a top speed of 120 knots, and a flight ceiling of around 12,000 feet. The company also plans two larger versions, the 60-ton capacity ML868 and the 500-ton capacity ML86X.
  13. The name of the company was misspelled. It is Worldwide Aeros, not Worldwide Arrows. They produce dirigibles. Not a big buy for our military. Worldwide Aeros Corp is an American manufacturer of airships based in Montebello, California. It was founded in 1992 by the current CEO and Chief Engineer, Igor Pasternak, who came to America from Ukraine. It currently employs more than 100 workers.
