[BREITBART] A bill to legalize adult prostitution in Vermont was recently introduced by female politicians in the state’s legislature.
The bill’s text read:
This bill proposes to repeal the prostitution laws while retaining felony human trafficking laws that prohibit recruiting, enticing, harboring, transporting, providing, or obtaining a minor for the purpose of commercial sex; patronizing a minor for commercial sex; recruiting, enticing, harboring, transporting, providing, or obtaining any person through force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of having the person engage in commercial sex; compelling any person through force, fraud, or coercion to engage in commercial sex; and patronizing any person for a commercial sex act who is being compelled through force, fraud, or coercion to engage in a commercial sex.
One of the bill’s sponsors, Rep. Selene Colburn who is a Burlington Progressive, said she believed decriminalizing so-called "sex work" would offer hookers more safety and improve their health.
Colburn also stated that if prostitution were not considered illegal in the state, charges would not be brought against the sex worker or the buyer, the VTDigger reported.
"By driving sex work underground, we’re creating much more dangerous conditions for hookersprostitutes sex workers ...the oldest profession was legal (though not always unregulated) for thousands and perhaps even millions of years. That never has made it something most people want their daughters doing... . They should feel like they have the protection of police if they need it," she stated.
However, we can't all be heroes. Somebody has to sit on the curb and applaud when they go by... when the demand for commercial sex increases, it brings with it a rise in human trafficking to meet that demand, according to the Harvard Law and International Development website.
The site continued:
Countries with legalized prostitution are associated with higher human trafficking inflows than countries where prostitution is prohibited. The scale effect of legalizing prostitution, i.e. expansion of the market, outweighs the substitution effect, where legal sex workers are favored over illegal workers. On average, countries with legalized prostitution report a greater incidence of human trafficking inflows.
Remember when its between consenting adults, SCOTUS ruled it is legal. It just when it becomes a matter of commerce that it becomes evil and subject to prosecution. Meanwhile, pre20th Century divorce precedents still apply to those who enter into any contract (to include child support even if the DNA says the male donor isn't the male of said contract).
"We hereby assign you..." "I've read it."
"... this random sex worker, to bed it.
Will rate your enthusiasm,
So lie back and think..." "Yeah, I get it.
I'll lose or accrue social credit."
"Well, citizen, let's get it on!"
"But muh sexual preference is..." "Yawn."
[BREITBART] President Donald Trump ...the Nailer of NAFTA... told Fox News TV host Laura Ingraham on Friday his 2021 plans to welcome more foreign graduates will not flood the labor market for U.S. college graduates.
"I have so many companies coming into this country, you’re not going to have to worry about it," Trump said in the interview, adding, "It is always going to be a shortage ... We have so many companies coming in, from Japan ... [and] China now is going to start building a lot of things."
Trump and Ingraham did not find common ground, likely because they were talking about different parts of the immigration problem. Also, neither mentioned Ivanka Trump’s campaign to prod companies to train their own American employees for high-tech jobs.
Ingraham began the exchange by noting American graduates’ salaries have been suppressed by the flood of foreign graduates:
We don’t have a tight labor market. If we had a tight labor market, we would be seeing real increases in wages. I hear that your team is planning on advocating more foreign workers coming in for some of these high-tech companies.
Ingraham rejected business claims of shortages: "We’re seeing a plateauing of wages ... There’s a never-ending appetite on the part of corporate America to bring in as much cheap labor as possible to drive down wages."
"I’m not talking about cheap ‐ I’m talking about brainpower," Trump responded. "They want to hire smart people. And those people are thrown out of the country ‐ we can’t do that," he said, referring to foreign graduates of U.S. colleges.
Trump seems to want to help companies import a relatively small number of very clever people, such as Ivy League valedictorians. In contrast, Ingraham is trying to block companies’ effort to cut payrolls by replacing well-paid American professionals with cheap foreign graduates who have just enough skills to get the job done, regardless of quality.
"We have to allow smart people to stay in our country ‐ if you graduate number one in your class at Harvard, [if] you graduate from the Wharton School of Finance," Trump said. "If we tell smart people to get the hell out, that’s not America first."
They've had this argument since the 80s and tech workers. What business have done is to suppress the market and incentives to pursue the careers for over 4 decades. Tell them to grow their own if they can't find them. [Gee, that's exactly what the military does through many different programs]
at the same time that tens of thousands of our domestically-trained PhDs can't get jobs here
Trained in universities whose stated goals are to increase women & minorities (as long as they're not Asians) participation in STEM. Trained in intersectionality and anti-white privilege. Taught, since K-12, by (semi-illiterate) teachers of gender & color.
Non-tribe educators, somewhat like Jalapeño flavoured coffee, really never has caught on in some segments of society. Learning be hard.... when you have a race based hatred for the teacher. Getting tribal educators across the finish line requires some adjustments to the standards. There, I said it.
Oh, I think he's right. Companies around here are begging for iron workers, welders, electricians, plumbers, carpenters, and several others.
Not one of which requires a university education, much less a STEM degree. This is about the elite cutting their technical labor costs in half (or more in CA) and pocketing the difference. Same thing that happened since the 1990s to the blue collar work force, but moving up the value chain.
That headline doesn’t begin to express the relish the field organizer has for the idea — and the Democratic debate is tonight.
Mr. O’Keefe’s twitter feed is here. The discussion around today’s video drop is devastating. If someone could set that up in the comments, I would be grateful.
[Breitbart] An undercover video published by Project Veritas on Tuesday shows a field organizer for Sen. Bernie Sanders ...The only first openly Socialist member of the U.S. Senate. Sanders was Representative-for-Life from Vermont until moving to the Senate for the rest of his life in 2006, assuming the seat vacated by Jim Jeffords. He ran for the 2016 nomination for president, to be cheated out of it by Hillary Clinton, then went back to being a socialist, waiting for 2020 to roll around... ’s 2020 campaign saying Soviet gulags were actually a positive phenomenon, suggesting that some similar program could re-educate Trump supporters and billionaires.
The video begins with a Project Veritas journalist asking an individual identified as Sanders organizer Kyle Jurek if "MAGA people" could be re-educated if Bernie wins the White House. "We gotta try," Jurek replies. "In Nazi Germany, after the fall of the Nazi Party, there was a shit-ton of the populace that was fucking Nazified."
"Germany had to spend billions of dollars re-educating their fucking people to not be Nazis," he continues. "We’re probably going to have to do the same fucking thing here."
"That’s kind of what all Bernie’s whole fucking like, ’hey, free education for everybody’ because we’re going to have to teach you to not be a fucking Nazi," he added.
In another part of the video, Jurek is seen discussing Soviet Union dictator Joseph Stalin’s use of gulags, where he claims that the CIA was overly critical of them. "People were actually paid a living wage in the gulags, they conjugal visits in gulags, gulags were meant for re-education," he says.
Jurek is then seen suggesting that the most effective way to re-educate the billionaire class is to order them to "break rocks for 12 hours a day."
"[The] greatest way to break a fucking billionaire of their privilege and their idea that their superior, go and break rocks for 12 hours a day. You’re now a working class person and you’re going to fucking learn what the means, right?"
The video also shows Jurek warning that Milwaukee, host of this year’s Democrat National Convention, will "burn" if Sanders fails to win the party’s nomination. "If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination or it goes to a second round at the DNC convention, fucking Milwaukee will burn," says Jurek. "It’ll start in Milwaukee and then when the police push back on that, other sites will fucking [explode]."
The footage concludes with Jurek issuing the chilling prediction that Milwaukee could see riots akin to the 1968 convention in reliably Democrat Chicago, aka The Windy City or Mobtown ...home of Al Capone, the Chicago Black Sox, a succession of Daleys, Barak Obama, and Rahm Emmanuel... , where left-wing activists engaged in violent riots in the streets. "Be ready to be in Milwaukee for the DNC convention. We’re going to make  look like a fucking girl’s scout fucking cookout," warns the Sanders field organizer. "The cops are going to be the ones fucking beaten in Milwaukee."
The undercover video’s emergence comes as 2020 Democrats are slated to debate Tuesday evening ‐ their final meeting before Iowa holds the nation’s first caucus on February 3rd. Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe has teased that Tuesday’s footage is one of several upcoming videos to be released as part of the group’s "Expose2020" campaign.
Absolutely frightening. Bernie will say its just one guy, but for him to speak freely about it out in the open, that means a lot to the culture Bernie has in his camp. The disinformation on the Gulags and his desire to pass judgement proves Bernie is not a socialist, he and his followers are hard core communists, with stalin laden core principles. Very frightening.

And please do riot in Milwaukee, even worse than they did in Chicago in 1968, because there are those of us who remember how the riots that summer impacted the election results that fall.

The only riots would be those paid for by Soros.
Bernie will fire the guy and disavow him and all will be forgotten.
And as usual, once you set up socialism, it attracts the heavy hitters who use it as a springboard to set up communism.
In case it escaped your notice, Mr. Eloquence here dropped the F-bomb twelve times over thirteen sentences. I'm not being a prude but if you constantly need to swear, you're not going to convince too many people, much less showing everyone what an uneducated buffoon you are.
Now, to go check if my mental image of Mr. Jurek conforms to the 160 lb. soyboy with a goatee is correct...
Err... not to p in the Veritas parade but a "field organizer" is about as far from a candidate & his staff as you can get. Probably not even on the payroll.
Bernie-Squeaky is a clown for sure. But he -- maybe alone among the Dems' SS clowns, or maybe he & Plugz -- doesn't hate the white working class.
I don't think that line of attack will work against Bernie. Maybe this is an ultra-cunning, attack-the-enemy-where-he's-strongest jujitsu maneuver but it won't change the minds of many/any Bernie Bro's.
but a "field organizer" is about as far from a candidate & his staff as you can get. Probably not even on the payroll.
Going through the Twitter thread linked at the top of the post, there is video of James O’Keefe discussing this first video. He shows an image of the field operator’s pay slip — not six figures, but better than McDonalds.
[Free Beacon] - Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is facing rebuke from a fellow New York Democrat and longtime political ally, for distorting‐for electoral gain‐the record and policies of the Trump administration.
Assemblyman Dov Hikind, who represents Schumer's home borough of Brooklyn in the New York legislature, penned an open letter to the senator after receiving a campaign mailer soliciting financial contributions. Hikind said the mailer attacked the "hard right" while omitting "vital information."
In his letter, which was posted on the assemblyman's Facebook page, Hikind castigated Schumer for promising to fight "for Democratic values" while providing little in means of substance.
..."You forgot to tell us about the economy. As good as it’s been, economists expect even more growth through the end of the year. That’s very good news," Hikind wrote. "You forgot to tell us about unemployment, which is lower than it has been in decades, while economic confidence is at a 17-year high."
Hikind also expressed support for the tax cuts proposed by the president and enacted by congressional Republicans.
"You forgot to tell us about tax cuts. I’m part of the middle class and now I’m getting a little extra in my paycheck," he wrote. "I’m happy about that and so are tens of millions of Americans, Senator."
According to his Wikipedia page, Dov Hikind retired from the NYS Assembly at the end of 2018. Also, while he was indeed a Democrat, he has consistently endorsed Republican presidential candidates since George W, Bush.
[Breitbart] While speaking to reporters on Monday, Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) said that he is keeping an open mind on which witnesses he wants to hear from in the Senate impeachment trial, and wants to hear from former National Security Adviser John Bolton.
Romney said, "I support the Clinton impeachment model, which is a vote on witnesses later. But as to which witnesses I’d want to hear from, and so forth, that’s something which I’m open to until after the opening arguments."
He added that Bolton is "someone who I would like to hear from, and presumably, I’d get the chance to vote for that."
Doing the work that Democrats wouldn't do for themselves. There should be by-laws for the Republican Party that call for members to be expelled when they wander too far across the wrong side of the party line.

Dems should have called Bolton, expecting the Senate to do so is insane. If Bolton wouldn't show take it to court and force him.
"Vote Fraud B Us: Dems"
[FoxNews] A Wisconsin judge on Monday found the state's Elections Commission and three of its members in contempt of court and ordered the commission to remove up to 209,000 names from the state's voter rolls, in a case that could have major implications later this year in a key battleground state.
Saying in his ruling that "time is of the essence," Judge Paul Malloy said that there is no time to wait for the case to make its way to the Wisconsin Supreme Court and ordered that the state pay $50 a day until it starts removing people from the voter rolls.
Malloy also ordered that the three Democrats on the commission ‐ Ann Jacobs, Julie Glancy and Mark Thomsen ‐ pay $250 a day each. The state Justice Department asked Malloy to stay his order of contempt pending an appeal of his ruling, but the judge denied the request.
"I can't be any clearer than this," Malloy said, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "They need to follow my order."
The case is being closely tracked on a national level, as Wisconsin is one of the most politically prized states up for grabs in this year's presidential election. President Trump won the state by fewer than 23,000 votes in 2016, becoming the first Republican to win Wisconsin since 1984, after Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton infamously failed to campaign in the state. Democrats are trying to remedy their loss this election season by holding the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee this summer and aggressively targeting voters in the Badger State.
State Democrats in Wisconsin are fighting the lawsuit, saying the purge would unfairly affect their voters. Republicans, however, argue that they merely want to ensure that people who have moved are not able to vote from their old addresses.
No, Raj. They wouldn't use the whole list, only what would be necessary to give them a 3% advantage AFTER the polls close.

I don't know if Wisconsin is all that red. I suspect an awful lot of people wanted Bernie, and sat out Hillary last go-round. Milwaukee, Madison, ... big population centers are pretty socialist, and are much easier to organize get-out-the-vote efforts--including above-board versions.
[WASHINGTONEXAMINER] Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg ...former Republican mayor of New York. He tried to take the credit for Rudy Giuliani's actions in the wake of the 9-11 attacks. He was known as Nanny Bloomberg for his war on 32-ounce Slurpees. Nanny is a candidate for the Dem presidential nomination in 2020. He was born on Valentine's day, 1942, which makes him 77.81680 years old, which is pretty ripe... claims he is ready to spend more than $1 billion in an effort to oust President Trump, but money may not be bringing supporters to his campaign.
Just 45 people showed up to Bloomberg's latest rally with TV star Judge Judy Sheindlin in Texas on Saturday, according to the New York Post.
"Unlike everyone else in this race, I think what’s important is beating Donald Trump ...Oh, noze! Not him!... ," Bloomberg told the sparse crowd of fewer than 50 people in San Antonio.
Bloomberg, 77, has eschewed tradition by entering the race late, forgoing attempts to make the debate stage, spending big out of his personal account, and focusing on the later states in an attempt to gain the 2020 Democratic nomination.
He has bought a $10 million TV spot that will air at this year's Super Bowl, and his campaign's digital ad buys are set to outpace Trump 4 to 1.
During his 13-minute stump speech, Bloomberg highlighted efforts to increase teacher pay in New York and his plan to cut carbon emissions. He then attacked Trump, saying he would spend less time tweeting if he were president.
I am encouraged by the sheer idiocy and arrogance of Bloomberg’s staff. Waxahachie, really? The wife and I stopped into a Mexican grill there for breakfast on our way home from the high school football playoffs the Sunday before Christmas, and we watched the church crowd come in. None of those people, Hispanic or Anglo, would ever vote for the little troll.
If ads didn't matter nobody would waste money on them.

Ads used to matter a great deal. But so many voters made up their minds following events in 2016, 2018, and 2019, that ads matter much less now.
Also, the common culture is much smaller than it used to be. The left and the right tend to watch different television shows, see different films, avoid each other on Facebook and Twitter... so ads seen by one side mostly won’t be seen by the other, and will have less impact when they're encountered.
[WESTERNJOURNAL] If your home isn’t carbon neutral, Elizabeth Being Native American has been part of my story since the day I was born Warren ...Dem Senatrix from Massachussetts, who traces her noble lineage all the way back to Big Chief Spouting Bull. It has been alleged that she speaks with forked tongue but she denies that. She had a DNA test to prove her lineage and it turns out she's colorless... might not let you build it. And if that means no new homes get built, she’s OK with that.
In an appearance on MSNBC’s "Morning Joe" on Wednesday, the Massachusetts senator and fading presidential candidate talked about her Thunberg-lite plan to help end climate change. (Climate crisis? Catastrophe? What are we going with these days?)
During her appearance, Warren was asked what she’d do to "change the tide of U.S. policy on the issue of climate change" and acted as if she’d been thrown the softball of all softballs.
She promised "to do everything a president can do all by herself, that is, the things you don’t have to do by going to Congress." This includes putting an end to energy mining and drilling on federal lands or offshore and "not having a coal lobbyist as head of the Environmental Protection Agency."
You might not be surprised to learn that’s a dig at Andrew Wheeler, President Donald Trump ...His ancestors didn't own any slaves... ’s EPA administrator, who was previously an attorney representing a coal producer.
Warren then moved on to her plan for housing, which she said was borne out of the dire predictions scientists have been making.
"What scares me is every time you go back to the scientists, they tell you two things," the senator said. "It’s worse than we thought, and we have less time.
"That means we’ve got to be willing to do things, for example, like regulation. By 2028, no new buildings, no new houses, without a zero carbon footprint."
And she’s coming for your car and electricity bill, too.
"By 2030, trucks ‐ light-duty trucks and cars, zero carbon footprint. By 2035, all production of electricity, zero carbon footprint," Warren said.
The Democrats cant actually campaign on anything that middle America wants and that *works* because Republicans already own those positions. If Republicans would simply wake up and grasp that fact, they could put the pedal to the metal and wallop them in virtually every level of government worth winning.
Their property suddenly becomes more valuable as supply disappears. Notice she doesn't suggest to level all homes that don't meet the proposed standards. Them's that have got. Them's that don't get screwed. Can you say 'ruling class' boys and girls? BTW, where in the Constitution does it give the national government such powers? /rhet question
[LAWENFORCEMENTTODAY] It seems as though every day brings us something new out of Virginia relating to their now Democrat-led legislators and gun laws.
Only Antifa can carry guns?
What’s the latest?
State Delegate Dan Helmer filed a bill this past Wednesday that would allow the Attorney General, Mark Herring, the ability to determine which states’ concealed carry permits Virginia would continue to recognize, and potentially making it almost impossible for people to protect themselves if they do not live in Virginia.
Not that they plan to let Virginians protect themselves either.
It appears that this would include members of the military that are stationed at one of the many Virginia bases.
They think stuffing the ballot box equates to consent of the governed. They'll going to find out its the willingness to give the last full measure of devotion. Or as the old sarge said - Are you prepared to die on that hill?
I think the Left believes there's a lot to gain from provoking an insurrection that they can then violently suppress. I think there are groups that have the whole strategy planned out by now. Why else would they be executing the plan?

once the cull has taken place the dems plan to import more voters
All their proposals are unconstitutional, and given trends in the Supreme Court with regard to the Second Amendment, will not be permitted to stand. I think the purpose of all this nonsense is to inspire their voters to turn out in November, in the hope that they’ll at least hold onto the state and Virginia’s Congressional seats, given that it’s ever clearer who’ll be sitting in the White House
More on this story from yesterday, dear Reader, so you can enjoy the sweet taste of his salty tears.
[CNN] Sen. Cory Spartacus Booker U.S. Senator-for-Life from Noo Joisey, formerly the mayor of Newark. Booker is a candidate for president in 2020, running on a platform of Make America Newark. He once wrote an essay on how to grope babes. He is noted for having an imaginary friend named T-Bone... announced Monday that he will end his campaign after failing to qualify for the Democratic debate planned for Tuesday in Iowa.
"It was a difficult decision to make, but I got in this race to win, and I've always said I wouldn't continue if there was no longer a path to victory," Booker said in an email to supporters Monday.
The New Jersey Democrat's announcement came a day before six presidential candidates will participate in the CNN/Des Moines Register's debate in Des Moines, Iowa. He did not qualify for the event. It also came as the Senate gears up for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump ...The man who was so stupid he beat fourteen professional politicians, a former tech CEO, and a brain surgeon for the Republican nomination in 2016, then beat The Smartest Woman in the World in the general election... "Our campaign has reached the point where we need more money to scale up and continue building a campaign that can win -- money we don't have, and money that is harder to raise because I won't be on the next debate stage and because the urgent business of impeachment will rightly be keeping me in Washington," Booker wrote.
His announcement marks another departure of a high-profile black candidate from the 2020 race. After not making the December debate, Booker criticized the rules that kept him from qualifying for the event and was outspoken about the growing lack of diversity on stage.
Like the Nobel Prize, the Obamas had nothing to do with making this documentary. The Participant Media production focuses on the dramatic culture clash when a Chinese billionaire opens a new factory in the husk of an abandoned General Motors plant, hiring two thousand blue-collar Americans. Following its Sundance premiere, the film impressed Barack and Michelle Obama, who launched their Netflix-partnered Higher Ground Productions last spring “to harness the power of storytelling,” as the former U.S. president described it at the time. This marks the first title from Higher Ground to premiere on the streaming service.

2020: Zero's first film, which no one has ever seen and which was probably produced by someone else, is nominated for an Oscar.
