Trump Gets Even Whinier As Investigations Close In…

“As subpoenas are enforced and his claims of executive privilege fall flat, Donald Trump has become increasingly more whiny and pathetic. He appears to realize that the walls are closing in on him, even if these particular walls won’t result in criminal referrals or indictments. But the fact that he could face some kind of accountability is terrifying him, as Farron Cousins explains.

Kevin McCarthy Promises Marjorie Taylor Greene Will Have MORE Power If Republicans Win Midterms…

“Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has promised Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Paul Gosar, that they would be getting their committee assignments back if Republicans win the midterms next year. This is a dangerous prospect, as it would give even more power to these extremist lawmakers that have routinely denigrated their colleagues and made a mockery of the offices they hold. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Warns Americans Will Pay ‘Price Of Blood’ For Passing Biden’s Agenda…

“Marjorie Taylor Greene swears that she doesn’t want a new civil war in America, but in the same breath she threatened that we will have to “pay the price of blood” if Biden’s agenda gets passed. Greene is apparently so upset at the thought of Americans actually benefiting from the Build Back Better Act that she thinks violence is the only appropriate response to it. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

Matt Gaetz Shocks The Nation By Actually Saying Something Intelligent…

“Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz has finally done the unthinkable: He said something that wasn’t stupid. In fact, it was actually rather intelligent. During a recent interview with Jim Jordan, Gaetz said that he does NOT support Marjorie Taylor Greene’s attempts to impeach Joe Biden because he doesn’t want impeachment to become a political tool. He’s right, and that’s almost painful to say. Farron Cousins discusses this.

The Frankfurt School: From a Failed Revolution to Critical Theory…

“The Frankfurt School get mentioned a lot on this website. Alongside being celebrated for their contributions to philosophy, sociology and political science, however, Max Horkheimer, Theodor Adorno, Herbert Marcuse and the various other scholars who worked at what was (and is) officially known as the Institute for Social Research, are the target of a lot of vitriol.

Commentators on the political right including Jordan Peterson and Ben Shapiro will often invoke the Frankfurt School as a group of intellectual bogey men and the progenitors of political correctness, cultural marxism, postmodernism or whatever else they seek to porn scorn on that day.

In today’s episode of What the Theory?, I seek to provide some insight into what the Frankfurt School actually was (and is). Beginning with the perceived failure of the German Revolution, I track the history of the Frankfurt School through formation, exile in the United States during the Second World War and up to the student revolts of May 1968.

Alongside this institutional history, I also provide some insight into the work of the Frankfurt School, introducing ideas such as critical theory and the culture industry as well as touching on seminal texts such as Dialectic of Enlightenment, The Authoritarian Personality, One-Dimensional Man and more.”

“Disney’s Hulu and other streaming services are offering DEEP discounts on Black Friday. Subscriber growth is slowing down for most streamers, and they’re practically giving these services away to get more people to sign up. Eventually they’re going to run out of new subs and will actually have to offer good CONTENT to keep eyeballs.”

Yes…there are to many streaming services.

I simply bought a Roku, and subscribe to the free streaming services [with commercials]. It works surprisingly well…I have no extra bills…and tons of stuff to watch.

“Activision Blizzard is toast. Maybe. There are calls from employees and the media to oust CEO Bobby Kotick because he allegedly knew about the ‘culture’ at the company and did nothing.. Their stock is plummeting. Employees are walking out. And former co-lead Jen Oneal claims that she wasn’t paid as much as her male counterpart, and that’s why she left. All of this paints a VERY grim outlook for this company long-term. Activision gets bought out when?”
