Wow. Just more and more corruption and more and more crooks coming to light in the Democratic party. Old Joe Kennedy was a known crook as well. Ted killed a girl. Its all OK I guess. Obama sprang from the extremely fetid Chicago swamp. The Clintons may be the worst. No wonder they are anti law and order and want to go light on crime.

About as corrupt as you can get.

Here is an article from 1960 detailing the Sqaw Valley Concession that was nothing but a slush fund for these families.

Assemblyman Brands State's Squaw Valley Contract 'Another Pig In A Poke’

Link: https://cdnc.ucr.edu/?a=d&d=MT19600817. ... N--------1

SACRAMENTO (UPI| A legislator charged today that a state contract with two San Francisco men to operate Squaw Valley "looks to me like another pig: in a poke." Assemblyman Samuel R. Geddes I D-Napa I said the state might continue to lose money on Squaw Valley even while fine public paid prices similar to those of other winter resorts...

The Assembly Ways and Means Committee was told last week that the stale was losing about J 200.000 a year operating Sqilaw Valley State Park The contract with the two San Franciscans, William A Newsom Jr and .lohn Pelosi, was signed July 11 for them to run the park.

Sound familiar?

Sleepy Joe ought to be worried...

Interesting video. If the electoral college were to go away, just how would those four families affect our political system?

I'm not sure if Democratic leadership follows corruption or if corruption follows Democratic leadership? Chicken/egg. But where you find one the other is close by.

There are corrupt, politically-influence families in both parties, but more so, it seems in among the DeLPS.

From the article.
n 1960, Brown’s administration awarded a Squaw Valley concession contract to the elder Newsom, a deal panned by a legislative analyst as the state “paying for everything and getting nothing.”

Seems to me it was bad business to reward a contract if it was not bid out. However, regarding Ca getting nothing out of Squaw Valley except paying Newsomes company. They had the winter in 1960 at Squaw Valley so seems to me some research would need to be done to determine Squaw Valley provided no benefit to California.


Regarding the video this thread is based on.
Video by NewsWars owned by Alex Jones.60
What a joke.

Funded by / Ownership
NewsWars is owned by conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who is the host and producer of Infowars. The website is funded though advertising.

Analysis / Bias

In review, the website is laid out to look similar to the New York Times, which both Alex Jones and Donald Trump claim is a fake news source. All news articles are curated from other sources including Jones’ own Infowars. Some common sources used are Russian propaganda news site RT, Alt-right Breitbart and other conspiracy websites such as Zero Hedge. The reason why this site is not placed in our Conspiracy-Pseudoscience category is due to having more political news than conspiracy information. Though there is plenty of conspiracy, as Jones shares numerous stories from Infowars and provides a link to listen to his radio show live on the website. This website is also different in that the majority of news is real. The reason for the Questionable classification is that all stories favor the right, indicating extreme bias, there are unproven conspiracies published and Jones’ longtime reputation as a purveyor of fake news stories. In general, this is a far right media source that publishes conspiracy theories.

A factual search reveals a very poor track record based on republishing Infowars information.

Overall, we rate NewsWars Questionable based on extreme right wing bias, promotion of pseudoscience and conspiracies as well as the publication of fake news from poor sources. (D. Van Zandt 8/14/2017) Updated (8/14/2019)
