Leftists Are Not Going To Be Happy..Zuckerberg Just Made A ‘Republican’ Move

Published

on

From Mad World News:

Although Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared to be firmly planted on the Democrat side of the aisle, he just made a move that leftists will certainly describe as a very “Republican” thing to do. I’m sure they’ll blame it on the fact that he’s rich and white, but no matter what they decide to blame, it’s safe to say, liberals won’t be happy about what the billionaire recently decided to do.

Facebook has laid out a recent plan to significantly alter their tax bill, leaving many stunned. Apparently, the Silicon Valley giant is going to get out of taxes, using extreme measures to cut their liability. With an estimated $4 billion in profits annually and CEO Mark Zuckerberg being rumored to be a Democrat supporter, it’s safe to say many are left dumbfounded by the move the corporation is taking to get out of “paying their fair share.”

It seems Mark Zuckerberg is singing a different tune than he was just 4 short years ago. Priming himself as the “people’s president” for the 2012 election, Barack Obama cornered Zuckerberg at a town hall-style meeting on budgetary issues at Facebook’s headquarters in California, trying to sell the idea of raising taxes on rich people. Although Zuckerberg can’t be seen in the clip, he can be heard responding, “I’m cool with that,” regarding increased taxes on the rich.

Apparently, Zuckerberg isn’t so cool with paying more taxes after all, and his company is willing to do anything it can to get out of paying as much tax as possible, including giving staff hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses, all to decrease the tax that the corporation will pay to the government, and that’s exactly what it’s doing.

“Facebook is to award bonuses of £280 million ($396 million) to its U.K.-based staff over the next three years in a bid to offset the amount of tax it has to pay to the U.K. Treasury,” NBC News reports. “Each employee will receive an average of £775,000 ($1.1 million), which Facebook will list as a taxable expense. Each Facebook employee will receive an average of $1.1 million.”

This isn’t the first time the social media giant has done some fancy footwork to lessen the taxes it pays. Facebook is in the midst of a “very public tax restructuring in Britain” to “provide transparency to Facebook’s operations in the U.K.” Days before the bonuses to sidestep taxes were announced, Facebook came forward to say the company was changing its tax setup to no longer divert profits from its largest British advertisers through Ireland, where corporate tax is lower.

Although the company speaks of “transparency,” it has yet to release figures as to its U.K.-specific earnings. What’s worse, data recently emerged to show that the British government’s Treasury pays more to Facebook for advertising placement than it receives in taxes from the multi-billion dollar corporation. It’s easy to see why the British government is more than a little frustrated with yet another blow from the widely successful company.

While the current plans only speak to how Facebook will dodge taxes in Britain, we can only wonder what they’re doing in the US. It’s also rather important for those who think we can tax the rich to eliminate poverty to be reminded that these mega-giants aren’t going to sit back and let that happen without taking action.

One also has to ask, is this really a dirt-bag move? I’m sure the UK-staffers don’t think so right now. It’s his business, so Zuckerberg can and will spend it how he wants to, but someone might want to give the socialists, such as the Bernie Sanders supporters, a memo: You can’t take what’s not yours, and when you try, those who you are attempting to rob will figure out a way to stop you.

While your initial reaction might be to scold Facebook for finding a way to legally diminish their tax liability, they just made hundreds of people in that country quite rich, and it’s probably going to give the economy a nice boost, which means more tax revenue in the long run.

Racist NFL Player Just Started SICK New Trend With What He’s Doing After Tackling ANY White Player

Published

on

As the 2018 football season is now officially underway, it’s been a rough couple of weeks for the NFL. Over the past week, fed up fans have proven they are sick and tired of witnessing these anti-American protests, and empty stadiums at several games over the weekend spelled disaster for the NFL of things to come. As NFL officials are frantically trying to do damage control as their protesting athletes are turning fans away in droves, they now have a new nightmare on their hands after a brand new version of nasty anti-American protests just started, led by a Seahawks player who’s now doing an unthinkable act of racism towards white players on the field.

49’ers stadium during the second half kickoff where large sections were completely empty (left) Across the nation in Los Angles, similar fan-inspired protests were taking place, as there were more empty seats than filled ones during the Colts and Rams game on September 10 (right)

Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett was the first NFL player to protest this season, where he’s been vocally leading nasty anti-American protests ever since.  Shortly after signing a $30 million dollar contract with the Seahawks, Bennett still somehow felt “oppressed” as a black man living in America, and decided to sit on his ungrateful behind during the game against the Los Angeles Chargers back in August.

While it’s these players’ First Amendment right to be ungrateful and disrespect every American Soldier who has fought, bled, and died to preserve their freedoms, now Bennett is taking his antics to a startling new level.

Not satisfied with quietly sitting on the sideline while the National Anthem plays, Bennett is now raising the black power salute every time he sacks a white player on the field, a disgusting racist symbol that black supremacists have used for decades to display their supremacy over the white race. 

During the second quarter of the game against the 49ers over the weekend, Bennett celebrated tacking white quarterback Brian Hoyer by flashing the black power fist into the air. This gesture was a head nod to black supremacists around the country, where the All Black Media confirmed Bennett’s actions were a pro-Black Power gesture in the following tweet.

It’s one thing to kneel or to sit quietly by yourself on the bench while the National Anthem plays. It’s another thing entirely to disrupt the game with your protests, and then display your anti-white sentiments by flashing a black power salute. Could you imagine the backlash if a white player was flashing Nazi salutes on the field every time they sacked a black player? Not only would the white player be receiving death threats by every liberal in America, but they’d be permanently suspended and have their multi-million dollar contracts revoked!

The black power fist is an infamous symbol of racism that black hate groups have used for decades. The Black Panther Party uses this gesture frequently, whose leader Khalid Muhammad called on his followers back in 2012 to kill all white babies, in a disgusting terroristic tirade that you can read in its entirety here.

Players protesting their perceived “injustices” towards blacks is one thing, but Bennett’s defiant act of racism towards white players on the field is absolutely startling. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has a complete nightmare on his hands, as he had the opportunity during the pre-season to condemn these protesters’ actions, but disgustingly, put the problem back on the fans, demanding that fans be “more understanding of the protests.” Now these protests have metastasized from players simply protesting the National Anthem to all out defiant acts of racism towards white players on the field.  

Not only does Bennett apparently hate white people, he hates police officers too. Several weeks ago he tried to push the ridiculous nonsense that he was a victim of “racial profiling” by Las Vegas police, after his suspicious activity of hiding under a game at a casino while authorities were looking for a black shooter led police to arresting him for a short period of time.

“Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Undersheriff Kevin McMahill remembered the incident a little differently, saying that officers were searching for a possible active shooter at the Cromwell casino when they located Bennett crouched down behind a gaming machine,” Conservative Tribune reported.

It looks like empty stadiums will now become more of an issue for the NFL as outraged fans are now sending the clear message that they have better things to do with their time other than being bombarded by these disgusting acts of disrespect and racism on the football field every time they turn on the television or go to a game.

Badass Texans Player Just Shut Down Every Whiny Protester On His Field With What He Brought To Game

Published

on

As tens of thousands of Texans and Floridians battle the aftermath of the hurricane that ripped through their communities, we’re beginning to glimpse into the heart and soul of what makes America, America. While loudmouths like “oppressed” millionaire football stars like Colin Kaepernick could easily use his social media presence to rally his base and organize relief efforts, he’s obviously too self-absorbed with plotting his next bout of anti-American antics to give flying crap about suffering Americans. Now a lesser-known NFL player is putting every kneeling player to shame after the incredible thing he brought onto the football field Sunday night that’s making these ungrateful players look like even bigger jackasses than they already were, while proving that the spirit of America is alive in well.

As “oppressed” millionaire NFL players continue to make a mockery of our country while insulting ever single soldier who fought, bled, and died for this country by protesting our National Anthem, other NFL players like Justin James “J. J.” Watt have been working tirelessly to organize hurricane relief efforts for the past several weeks. Watt, who is defensive end for the Houston Texans, raised a whopping $30 million dollars just in the last week and a half alone, putting every kneeling douchebag in the NFL to massive shame.

Rather than taking a knee or using his time in the spotlight to act like a gigantic jackass, Watt ran onto the football field for his first game since Hurricane Harvey with a gigantic flag, symbolizing the incredible spirit of Americans uniting after the catastrophe, a patriotic gesture that anti-American morons like Colin Kaepernick can’t even comprehend.

The stadium went absolutely nuts, giving the man who has raised $30 million to rebuild their destroyed communities an incredible rock star welcome, rightfully stealing the spotlight from the anti-American clowns whose disgusting antics continue to make headlines at every single NFL game as of late.

If morons like Colin Kaepernick truly cared about America and wanted to be a positive force for “change” like they claim, they’d be first in line to help pass out boxes of food and supplies to these suffering victims. We as Americans need to stop allowing these kneeling idiots to hijack our favorite sport and give players like Watt the attention and praise he deserves, as he truly cares for Americans and is choosing to use his platform in such an incredible way.

J.J. reported over twitter that the physical donations pouring in so fast, that the money that was raised hasn’t even been tapped into yet. Pictures of supplies overflowing from storage spaces and trucks could be seen, where these supplies were donated in a massive distribution event over the weekend to the suffering Houston community.

What’s even more amazing is that after raising all this money and coordinating the relief efforts, J.J. has been hands-on and involved ever step of the way, even physically going to the distribution centers and handing out supplies. Keep in mind Watt is a professional athlete who is taking time away from his vigorous training to help his fellow Texans.

In a recent interview with James Palmer, J.J. was asked about how many hours a day he’s spending on relief efforts, and his answer was remarkable:

“I asked Watt how many hours he’s spent on his fundraiser and planning this event since he arrived in Houston with the rest of his teammates on Wednesday. “All of them,” he said, smiling. Outside of a two to three hour workout each day, Watt has spent every second working with either Houston mayor Sylvester Turner, people from the Justin J. Watt Foundation, or volunteers to make this massive project a success in just a few short days. There is no question there were also a few prayers Saturday night that things would go off without a hitch.

Many professionals — let alone professional football players — struggle to lead groups during a time of crisis. Watt has done it brilliantly. I asked someone close to Watt, who has been with him during every step of the planning and preparation, how much of this he’s actually been hands-on for. She responded, “All of it.”

As for the tens of millions of dollars he’s raised, J.J. says, “I’m going to take my time, make sure that I work with local organizations that we do it right here in the city so that money goes straight to the people here of Houston who need it the most so that we can help rebuild them.”

What an incredible man! Rather than using his platform to whine about America and our country’s “injustices,” Watt is showing is leading by example and truly being the “change” that our country needs, showing these ungrateful protesting morons throughout the NFL what it really means to be an American.

Trump’s Motorcade Just Came To Abrupt Halt In Indiana After What’s Spotted Right Out His Window

Published

on

President Donald Trump didn’t hold back when he expressed his displeasure with the National Football Lague (NFL) allowing players to kneel during the anthem. This lit a fire under the controversy, leading to more protests and liberals speaking out in support of this divisive message that entitled athletes were sending. It’s been nearly a week of this tug-of-war between right and wrong on this matter that has come to a head in an unexpected way, just inches from Trump’s motorcade today.

The protests have always been about disrespecting our flag and showing a complete lack of appreciation for those who died defending it. If it was simply to bring about “unity” and attention to supposed police brutality in the black community, these players could have shared their opinion on the matter outside of the National Anthem. They wanted the attention and reason to get publicly irate at a perceived problem they brought to the surface and have taken way too far.

Since the president spoke out about their actions, they protests become almost entirely as a way to show hate to the Commander-in-Chief who rightfully addressed the issue. All manner of threats and accusations ensued from there. On Wednesday, he was in Indianapolis when his security detail noticed what someone was doing just inches from the armored vehicles and snapped a picture.

This shot speaks volumes more than what these athletes have been doing all week on their knees. This background behind what brought this man to Trump’s ride sends a stronger message that what he realized he was making.

A black man was on his knee outside the motorcade for a different reason than those in the NFL, based on who he is and what he was holding. While what he had to say was not an opinion that everyone agrees on, there was another message that he didn’t know he was sharing but is the one that really needs to be heard.

The Hill reports:

An Army veteran who took a knee with a folded flag as President Trump’s motorcade passed by him on Wednesday says the president’s criticism of NFL players who kneel during the national anthem is “totally wrong.”

Marvin Boatright told The Huffington Post that he hoped someone in Trump’s motorcade would notice him kneeling while wearing an American Legion hat and holding a folded flag as the motorcade passed by en route to Trump’s speech on tax reform.

“For the commander-in-chief to call our citizens ‘sons of a bitches’ was totally wrong and beneath the dignity of the office that he holds,” Boatright told the Post.

A photo of Boatright kneeling went viral Thursday on Twitter.

While it’s Boatright’s opinion to think that what the president said was “totally wrong,” he has the right to feel that way without inciting violence since he did so in a respectable manner when the anthem wasn’t being performed. He knows what it means to honor the flag and respects what it represents while having a difference of opinion too.

The problem has never been people not showing compassion for their convictions or right to express them. It’s always been about a time and place and kneeling protesters knew what they were doing when they disrespectfully did so during our nation’s sacred anthem. It doesn’t make someone racist to expect respect either.

“As a veteran, and as an African-American, we have already and we continue to serve for God and country,” Boatright went on to explain to The Huffington Post. “But you can have a love of God and country and still be against social injustice. You don’t have to separate one from the other.”

While the injustice he speaks of is debatable, given that more black men are shot by other black men than they are by white police officers, he at least sets a good example that you can respect our flag and other people’s opinions while still making the point you say you’re trying to make.

I don’t agree with Boatright on this matter but can agree to disagree with him since he’s had the audacity to express his opinion in a peaceful manner that wasn’t meant as a distraction from honoring our country. He sent a powerful message in his own right and that’s what needs to be recognized by those who do it differently.

Trump can even appreciate this since his words have been twisted to mean something different than how he delivered them. All he wanted was for people to express their opinions in the right time and place, which Boatright did. If unity are what these kneelers are really after, then they can go about advocating for that in a way which actually promotes peace.
