It is Time for Anti-Trust Action

2018 April 2

I am sure you have seen it on the interwebs. The only problem with the “… a danger to our democracy.” is that it is aiming at the wrong target. The real target should be the Sinclair Broadcast Group which owns all these outlets. The irony is PJ Watson who put the vid together reported real news having classified the providers as ‘fake news’.

President Trump has even taken to launching a broadside to Jeff Bezos ala the Washington Post. The tirade might not be useful but it is bringing out the fact that Main Street has been ignored.

Which brings us to what should be happening — FTC and Treasury should be bringing Anti-Trust actions against the big banks, the mega broadcasters, and New York Times syndication. Bust up centralized broadcasting. Bust up the TBTF banks.

Amazon? Bezos should be informed that he has to divest of Whole Foods, forget about banking and mortgages, etc. Essentially Amazon may not launch into vertical integration efforts beyond their core business. Amazon proper is nothing but a platform that small business can use to extend their reach. Roughly 15% of Amazon sales are Amazon owned assets. The balance are third party vendors using the platform. Limit the scope and Amazon can duke it out with WalMart. Amazon’s PE multiple will come back down to earth like it should.

The funny bit is this is a made to order opportunity for the Democrats. They say they champion the little guy. Well here is a avenue they can walk the talk. It would pit Trump against himself. But they won’t, they are too dependent on mega bundlers to go that route. Plus their constituencies would have a cow if the Democrats went that direction.

    Bill Gates would like everyone in the freaking world to know that he accepts 0 responsiblity for his shitty software.

    (edited for pure rant purposes)

    In what other industry to you get to do this? Microsoft products are the equivalent of selling cars that are guaranteed to catch on fire. Oh wait that’s Tesla. Ok but in what other industry do you get to basically negligently expose the user data for years on end and….wait that’s Google and Yahoo and Amazon and facebook and Wells Fargo and….OK but in what other industry do you get to basically get paid for failure time and again…crap that’s the entire banking industry…yeah but uh…

    Know something? This rant just isn’t going where I wanted it to. I give up.

    the mopey gal on the right in that picture is just too funny…unintentionally.

    is there ANYONE who buys their spiel? Then again, as someone once said: “Once you can fake sincerity…you’ve got it made!”

    As much as I loathe David Hogg, the reports of his mother being sa CNN producer are false. She is a school teacher, but she hates Trump.

    good article, drodg…and a harbinger of things to come here IF the Democrat/media/Suppressive cabal manages to foist another “Obama” on us.

    IMHO the only reason Obama didn’t go further and faster with his “Fundamental transformation” of America was the Leftist cabal KNEW Hillary was going to win! They never counted on Trump.

    They won’t make that mistake again.

    Winnie Mandela, dead at 81.

    Think I’ll go set fire to my spare tire in her memory, if I can figure out how to get it out of the car.

    Trump at 50%

    op – agreed ( unlikely to happen though). Yeah I’d seen it already, I mean we knew they got fed a general script\narrative but this highlights it’s literally word for word script.

    10 – Don’t worry some other outfit will be out with one that shows 40% in 3..2… and that one will get the coverage…complete with the script like the above video.

    Every time I think of AMZ I think of this:

    The usps deal is also straight up insane, love to hear what was the original theory behind that from the usps side that had them agree (besides str8 corruption?)?

    drdog09 –

    There hasn’t been much anti-trust legislation in the past 100 years.

    They broke Standard Oil up into five companies: Standard Oil of NY (Mobil), Standard Oil of NJ (Exxon), Standard Oil of Ohio, standard Oil of Indiana (Amoco) and Standard Oil of California (Chevron). Today Exxon and Mobil have merged and Standard of Ohio and Indiana are BP in the US.

    Look at the airlines. Today United, American and Delta control things.

    Want to book a flight and hotel room? Expedia operates,,,, Trivago, Orbitz, and HomeAway. Chelsea Clinton is on the Expedia board of directors.

    In 2018, there is no such thing as anti-trust.

    The invasion force is heading for the U.S., and Mexico aiding and abetting it.

    On April 12, 1861, the Confederacy opened fire on Fort Sumter, igniting a civil war that before its end killed more than 800,000 Americans.
    Mark the date April 1, 2018, April Fool’s Day, as the day Civil War 2.0 began. On that day, the State of California began to automatically register illegal aliens who have driver licenses to vote. This new law immunizes illegals against any state criminal penalty for registering and voting.

    Can we get the Feds to revert CA to Territory status? At least till the state gov shows some approximation to sanity.

    Sessions has sued California against attempts to block ICE from doing its job using the sanctuary law. So yes indeed the cold war may be coming to an end.

    Lincoln never attempted legal avenues before war broke out because the SCOTUS of the period was packed with Southerners which included the CJ.
