Open Society: $1.3 million for asylum

The Open Society Foundations Monday announced “$1.3 million to support frontline organizations working to aid Haitian and Black migrants dislocated, detained, and expelled as they sought asylum and safety at the U.S. southern border this fall.” 

With all due respect, doesn’t that sound racist?

Alexander Soros, deputy chair of the Open Society Foundations said, “The treatment of Haitian migrants at the southern border is unconscionable and a stain on our country’s standing across the region and among Black Americans. The damage done by these policies will last long after headlines fade. These policies must change, accountability must be served, and the basic dignity and rights of the tired and poor, yearning to be free are honored here. We are proud to support organizations working on overdrive to help thousands through this crisis—and through our policy arm and efforts of the Foundations’ leadership, are advocating directly for an end to expulsions and deportations of Haitians as well.”

L.A. Ports: Regulation source of supply issues

Even with over 80 container ships just sitting at the Long Beach and Los Angeles ports, Emily Hibard’s paper manufacturing business was forced by government to sell their old trucks. Hibrad asserts such recent regulations are a major contributor to the supply chain fiasco.

Growing up in poverty in Wisconsin, Emily’s grandfather and founder of the company, George Hibard moved to LA and started “Spiral Paper Tube & Core” in South Central in 1949. He successfully defended the business during the 1968 Watts riots. Emily was 12 during the height of the Bloods and Crips. During the 1992 Riots, she slept on a cardboard box on the roof and ran a garden hose to put out fires from molotov cocktails thrown at the family business.

Out of other people’s money, they come for you

Opnion: Even the California liberal elite are jumping ship from the socialist brigade in D.C. that now wants to confiscate wealth, not just tax it. Elon Musk recently tweeted about the Marxist-like legislators saying, “Eventually, they run out of other people’s money, and then they come for you.”

The latest threat to Capitalism is the proposal by liberal Oregon Senator Ron Wyden to tax unrealized investment gains of billionaires in stock or real estate.

Now, no one feels sorry for billionaires— but they are the innovators who change the world, create thousands of jobs, and produce tremendous wealth for millions of Americans.

Tulsa School Board dispute & town hall

Dr. Jerry Griffin, Tulsa School Board Member (Dist. 6) announced recently his resignation from his position as a member of the Tulsa Public Schools, Finance Committee and a Town Hall for constituents and the general public Thursday, November 4, 2021, at Asbury United Methodist Church.

Griffin said, “While I have no personal knowledge of financial irregularities, the failure of the TPS Superintendent to provide me with multiple requests for financial and statistical information is deeply concerning. Her general response is, “we don’t have that information, or our systems can’t provide that information.” Griffin added, “from my view, it is her responsibility to provide information that a board member requests not to give excuses.”

Children shouldn’t get Covid-19 vaccines

Children should not get vaccinated against the virus that causes COVID-19, according to Harvard University professor of medicine Martin Kulldorff.

“I don’t think children should be vaccinated for COVID. I’m a huge fan of vaccinating children for measles, for mumps, for polio, for rotavirus, and many other diseases, that’s critical. But COVID is not a huge threat to children,” he said on EpochTV’s “American Thought Leaders” program. The full episode can be watched on EpochTV.

“They can be infected, just like they can get the common cold, but they’re not a big threat. They don’t die from this, except in very rare circumstances. So if you want to talk about protecting children or keeping children safe, I think we can talk about traffic accidents, for example, which they are really at some risk.”
