[BREITBART] A Monday report revealed Matt Rivitz, a the Socialist paradise of San Francisco ...where God struck dead Anton LaVey, home of the Sydney Ducks, ruled by Vigilance Committee from 1859 through 1867, reliably and volubly Democrat since 1964... -based ad executive, as the founder of Sleeping Giants, the anonymous leftist group that organizes social media mobs in an effort to silence conservative voices.
According to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s (DCNF) Peter Hasson, Rivitz’s identity as the until-now anonymous founder is confirmed by clues left in Rivitz’s media interviews and social media posts by people in his "social and professional circles."
Rivitz himself long ago deleted his Twitter and Facebook accounts, as well as his professional websites.
The group’s modus operandi is consistent throughout its campaigns: use social media in cooperation with other well-funded left-wing groups like Media Matters for America and Think Progress to urge their followers to contact advertisers en masse ‐ expressing their outrage that companies dare advertise with conservatives ‐ until the companies relent and pull their ads. Equally consistent is their goal in organizing these social media mobs: pressure corporate America to blacklist conservative audiences.
Sleeping Giants’ first crusade was to drive Breitbart News from the web, starting in 2016. Despite being unable to do so, the group has branched out into threatening the advertisers of other leading voices on the right like Fox News’s Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly. Sleeping Giants also sought to bring pressure on CEOs to drop out of President Donald Trump ...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States... ’s consultative councils. More recently, the group joined with teenage anti-gun rights campaigner David Hogg to try to push conservative icon Laura Ingraham off the FM airwaves and cable news.
Rivitz, throughout the time he has been organizing boycotts against advertisers, worked in the ad industry. According to his AdForum and AdAge profiles, Rivitz has done copywriting work with Goodby Silverstein & Partners, a major San Francisco ad firm, and Wieden + Kennedy, a Portland-based advertising powerhouse, although he does not appear to be employed at either agency at the moment.
The DCNF reports that Rivitz’s wife, Blythe Lang, was also an enthusiastic supporter of Sleeping Giants’ work, her Facebook "likes" of the group’s early work being one of the breadcrumbs leading to Rivitz.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Twitter complaints didn’t do any good. Even though she scored an upset victory over Rep. Joe Crowley in the New York Democratic Party’s June primary, his name is still going to be on the 14th Congressional District’s November ballot.
Ocasio-Cortez demanded Crowley answer her phone calls so she could hear his congratulations and concession, and move on to win the November general election in NY-14. But she won the primary, right? Maybe she’s just being paranoid?
Joe Lieberman wants NY-14 Democrats to "Vote Joe Crowley, for Working Families." IMO, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, for as long as she'll last, is an important source of merriment.
[Breitbart] Former President Barack Obama told an African audience that voters’ preferences for their own nation are no excuse for keeping nation-states and that all governments should welcome migrants who are "striving for a better life."
Obama hid his radical globalist call for ending the 200-year old dominance of nation-states under his signature style of passive-aggressive rhetoric, saying:
In the West’s current debate around immigration, for example, it’s not wrong to insist that national borders matter; whether you’re a citizen or not is going to matter to a government, that laws need to be followed; that in the public realm newcomers should make an effort to adapt to the language and customs of their new home. Those are legitimate things and we have to be able to engage people who do feel as if things are not orderly.
But those public priorities "can’t be an excuse for immigration policies based on race, or ethnicity, or religion," he said a July 17 speech in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Most of Africa is a mish-mash pretending to be Westphalian Nation-states. Better to erase all of the borders imposed by the European Colonial Powers and start redrawing them on a case by case basis. Ain't gonna happen.
But! Every time I hear Obama speak it seems to be a thinly veiled "Wah-wah- One World Government Wah-wah Colonialism Wah-Wah Let Me Rule As God-King! Wah-wah"
[BREITBART] Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) this week repeatedly defended his tweet that implied that America needed to have a military coup to remove President Donald Trump ...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States... after his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin ...President-for-Life of Russia. He gets along well with other presidents for life. He is credited with bringing political stability and re-establishing something like the rule of law, which occasionally results in somebody dropping dead from poisoning by polonium or other interesting substance. Under Putin, a new group of business magnates controlling significant swathes of Russia's economy has emerged, all of whom have close personal ties to him. The old bunch, without close personal ties to Putin, are in jail or in exile or dead from poisoning by polonium or other interesting substances... Trump held a summit with Putin on Monday, in which the 45th president declined to directly chastise Putin for allegedly trying to influence the 2016 presidential election, even when asked by an News Agency that Dare Not be Named (AP) news hound to do so. President Trump blamed the Russia investigation for some of the friction between the two countries.
In response to the summit, Rep. Cohen tweeted on Monday, "Where are our military folks? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!"
Our enemy? Russia is our enemy? WTF these people are engaging in literal McCarthyism.

Yeah? And I can just see the USMarine Corp backing this guy. And the Army? The folks the Pentagon ?
They hate the dorks and their "respect"and efforts of the Donk base to defund them and spit on them. It will be a cold day in hell before the ranks and the NCOs back a democratic Party Coup.
You want to get shot real fast ? Be an officer or some stupid unit that tries to co-ordinate a Coup. WHERE would you get the backing for a military coup? The men in the military are not stupid. They know the donks are not their friends.
You want to drive up from Belvoir and surround the White House?
You want to takeover a TV station and have some General go before the cameras ? You want to announce " new elections ".
And you will see Quantico a half hour later not even negotiate with you. They will just start killing democrats and any officer who backs them..... that fast.
This clown isn't thinking. And he certainly doesn't know the Military. The Military hate him and what he stands for. I will give you a clue about the base for Trump.....they puke on Obama and the donks .....and so does the Military.
I frankly like the idea that people wishing for such a thing are completely ignorant about the realities of the matter.

Don't be so smug about solid support from the military. Things are changing. West Point graduated a Communist recently.

West Point graduated a Communist recently.
And he's already been cashiered and the no longer in office dem who got him into the academy is even backpedaling. As the officers who had problems with Rapone are (AFAIK) still at the academy it was a good training exercise.

San Francisco began registering non-citizens, including undocumented immigrants, to register to vote Monday in the November election for the city school board, reported The San Francisco Chronicle.
The move follows passage of a 2016 ballot measure by San Francisco voters opening school elections to non-citizens who are over the age of 18, city residents and have children under age 19, reported the publication.
"This is no-brainer legislation," Hillary Ronen, a San Francisco supervisor, told the Chronicle. "Why would we not want our parents invested in the education of their children?"
"We want to give immigrants the right to vote," Norman Yee, also a county supervisor, told KGO.But Harmeet Dhillon, who serves on the Republican National Committee, told the station she disagrees with those assessments.
"The reason I voted against it is that I think the right to vote is something that goes along with citizenship and should be," Dhillon told KGO.
San Francisco became the first city in California to allow non-citizens to vote in local elections following passage of Measure N with 54 percent of the vote after two previous failed tries, reported KTVU.
There are concerns that the non-citizen voter registration rolls, which will be open, could be used to target people who entered the U.S. illegally, reported The San Francisco Examiner.
"Our immigrants, are they vulnerable? Absolutely," Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer told the publication. "But in San Francisco we stand strong together."
President Donald Trump and California leaders have clashed repeatedly since the 2016 election over immigration enforcement, sanctuary cities and voter fraud allegations.
Community organizations, such as the Mission Economic Development Agency, plan to meet with non-citizens to inform them of the possible risks, the Examiner reported.
Chicago and some Maryland cities also allow non-citizen residents to vote in school board elections, reported KPIX.
Several cities in Massachusetts, including Cambridge, Amherst, Brookline and others, have at various times voted to allow non-citizens to vote in local elections, but those moves require legislation from state lawmakers to take effect, reported The Boston Globe.
The San Francisco measure allowing non-citizen voting expires in 2022 unless renewed by the board of supervisors, according to the Examiner.
The deadline to register to vote in San Francisco is Oct. 22 for the Nov. 6 election, according to the California Secretary of State's Office.
