To stay up to speed with all that is happening within the invite-only doors of the ruling class confab, the WEF recommends following along through a handful of social media sites. They include the U.S.-based narrative-compliant Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and YouTube, along with the Chinese social media apps TikTok WeChat, and Weibo. Twitter, which has freed itself from the grasp of the WEF-endorsed censorship-compliant social apps, is no longer included. read more

California's recent decision to scoop tens of thousands of out-of-state online businesses onto its income tax rolls will likely spur other states to do the same, but not without courtroom battles over the state's legal rationale. Guidance from the state's Franchise Tax Board mirrors an August 2021 statement from the Multistate Tax Commission reinterpreting a federal law that has largely shielded out-of-state retailers from state income taxes for more than 60 years. read more
This is probably a lie. Given the incredible lie before the midterms. Joe Biden is destroying faith in our government one agency at a time
Let's wait a little bit before popping the Champagne!
"Alleged cartel members carjacked residents' cars, set vehicles ablaze and intermittent gunfire could be heard into the afternoon, as Mexico authorities warned people to stay inside and airports in several Sinaloa cities remained closed."
Just days before U.S. President Joe Biden's visit to Mexico, the country was thrown into chaos as alleged cartel members blocked off a northern Mexico airport, areas outside a local army base, and limited major access to the city of Culiacan, in an unsuccessful effort to thwart the capture of drug trafficker Ovidio Guzmn, son of infamous Sinaloa drug lord known as "El Chapo."
Mexican security forces captured Guzmn an alleged drug trafficker who is wanted by the U.S. for his involvement in the cartel's activities, in a predawn operation Thursday.
The incident spurred gunfights across the northwestern state's capital ahead of Biden's scheduled two-day visit on Jan. 9 for bilateral talks with Mexican President Andrs Manuel Lpez Obrador and the North American Leaders' Summit with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Because Biden is visiting Mexico soon, Mex Pres. AMLO decided to arrest El Chapo's son, Ovidio
CDS and rival cartels have laid siege to Culiacan, where Ovidio is being held.
The cartels have also declared Culiacan a "no fly zone" to keep Ovidio from being flown out.
The cartels have escalated this into a full blown battle by deploying MANPADS to enforce the "no fly zone".

That's not how it works.
1. Company contracts out hiring.
2. Hiring company are legal Hispanic employees.
3. They hire the employee to work at company pays hiring company.
Feds come in and arrest original company, but the have plausible deniability. Arrest hiring company, and a new one just pops up.
No different than HITECH hiring TaTa etal.
You think people are idiots, that's your issue.
Republicans will never, ever acknowledge that harm to the environment is not worth the money.

Now you know why Pelosi changed it to 5.
The irony of all this is that all the Dems are voting for an election denier.
This is true, regardless of the narrative Corky is spinning.
If there is no Republican Speaker of the House the Republicans aren't really running anything.
I heard something about a Horseshoe coalition.....
In ther words, getting customers to subscribe, with monthly payments, for things they used to purchased and own outright.
Not exactly, there certainly is the trend towards subscription model, and over-advertising issues. I don't think companies can do this for much longer, as I sense a trending towards homebrew over corporate offerings.
But hi-tech used to be after monetizing eyeballs (ads), without thinking about the longer term revenue generation.
Email, Smart speakers, OnLine doc tools, offer little to the "lifetime value", and in fact drain the company of resources because they haven't been able to capitalize on them. This is a big conversation at Amazon currently regarding Alexa. So now when companies look at products/offerings they try to figure out the "lifetime value", rather than just getting eyeballs then figuring out how to monetize.
Should Digital Health Startups Prioritize Eyeballs or Revenue?
"For years Connecticut has been charging sales tax for those out of state businesses that sell to Connecticut customers via online sites."
California started this, and that's not what this is ...
but it appears that California in intending to impose a tax on non-sales related interaction.
Exactly. If you send electronic communication across State lines, its as if Doing Business in the State ergo you owe State taxes on your revenue.
Hilarious to hear Perry talk about Lincoln and Reagan.

Why? GOP is having good debate something Lumpers are incapable of doing; They always talk about "having a conversation", but when push comes to shove Lumpers just harass their members, stalk them in restrooms & chase them out of the party.
I applaud the GOP members standing up to the man, trying to extract what they think the country needs. They weren't elected to roll over.
Pelosi was in a similar position: with a small majority, every Dem member had leverage to extract concessions.
Lumpers/"progressives" were too subservient even to honor activists' requests, like to demand a floor vote on Medicare For All, OR OpenBorders.
I see on this thread, a bunch of Lumpers celebrating their own mindless unity, a Party free of dissent even on neocon/neoliberal programs. Calling those on the left that disagree with Lumpers; Nazi's or RightWingers.
Wishes there was a mine field 200 yards deep surrounding the country.

So did Florida farmers who are desperate for workers.
Why do you hate farmers and working people?

That's what residents of Martha's vineyard said.
Nancy stated clearly they should stay in Florida to pick crops.
These people are not much different than those that cheer when an unvaccinated person dies of COVID, I am sure no one here has done that.
Jacksonville's violent crime rate is nearly double that of Florida's statewide rate
So what? Look at any Big City in America and I bet it has a higher crime rate than the rest of the state. Los Angeles's crime rate is 2 times higher than the national average and is on par with cities like Dallas, Phoenix and Atlanta.
I don't like Florida, but you're an idiot for posting statistically stupid stuff like this.

Other news outlets have not been given access to the original documents, which have been presented only in screenshots and excerpts in lengthy tweet threads, often without context.
So no different than any other media outlet? Not sure what the outrage is, this place goes wild with ANON sources when it targets Trump. But now you want the raw information or you don't believe it?
Whats the logic there?
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is responding to a suspicious letter delivered to Attorney General Ral Torrez's office.
