The New York Post did a report on the YouTube socialist Carlos Maza.
While they found that Maza has a visceral hatred toward America’s rich, Maza himself is pretty well off.
The social media left has more than 150,000 followers on Twitter and YouTube combined. He takes of advantage of his social media clout to call out the rich and powerful. He also encourages fans to be skeptical of their opinions.
“Just found out James Carville — who spends his time lecturing Democrats for being ‘too far left’ — lives in an absolutely obscene four-story mansion,” Maza stated back in February. He criticized the veteran Democratic strategist and posted a photo of Carville’s old home on his Twitter account.
“Dear god can we STOP taking political advice from the ultra-wealthy,” he commented. “You really have to respect this guy’s grift. Constantly dressing in normal clothes on TV to feign relatability [sic] while living like this. Masterful con artist.”
“We should treat gay people the SAME WAY we treat straight people: Eating them when they get too rich,” he remarked in another post.
Curiously, Maza raises money via his Patreon account, where “comrades” — what Maza describes as his supporters — can subsidize his lifestyle by $2, $5, or $10 donations monthly.
His family has various Florida mansions, a $7.1 million apartment on the Upper West Side purchased through an LLC, and a yacht by luxury boat-maker Donzi.
Vivian Maza, Carlos Maza’s mother, was one of the first employees at Ultimate Software, a Florida-based tech company which currently employs more than 5,000 people. She began in 1990 as an office manager, and rose up the corporate ladder to become the group’s chief people officer in 2004.
Vivian Maza also had an intimate relationship with company founder Scott Scherr. Such a relationship caused various concerns. An independent assessment of the company in 2016 deemed the relationship as a “corporate governance concern.” According to the report, it said that the business pair were “more than just co-workers” and have a “familial relationship.” The two would later become engaged, and the couple have been together for years, with Scherr, for all intents and purposes, acting as a stepfather to Carlos Maza.
According to public records, Vivian, Scott, Carlos and his sister Isabel were all registered to vote at a five-bedroom, eight-bathroom waterfront mansion in Boca Raton, Florida. The realty website Zillow reported that the property was sold in 2018 for $10.8 million. Scherr also sold off a four-bed, four-bath mansion in Weston, Florida, for $1,850,000 in 2015.
Vivian Maza currently lives full-time in a $4.4 million two-bed, three-bath luxury condo in Fort Lauderdale. According to a 2020 report filed by LCH 23, LLC, Vivian Maza lists this condo as her primary residence. Vivian Maza controls this same LLC, which purchased a $7,125,000 condo on the Upper West Side of Manhattan back in November 2017.
During his time as CEO of Ultimate Software, Scherr was one of the highest paid CEOs in the country. In 2015 he earned $38.3 million, per a CBS news report.
It remains to be seen if Maza’s parents actually bankroll his lifestyle. But there is evidence that suggests that his family is willing to financially pitch in. Scherr and Vivian are listed as “comrades” (supporters of his content) at the end of one of Carlos Maza’s recent YouTube videos. Additionally, Carlos Maza admitted in an interview with Mel Magazine that his family would be able to financially support him if needed.
According to accounts from Maza’s friends who were in touch with The Post, his parents helped Maza pay for rent at his posh East Village one-bedroom apartment. The rent for such an housing arrangement can be as high as $3,000 per month.
“I think a lot of these people are unhappy. I’m sure this guy is just craving some attention,” James Carville told The Post. “I don’t have a billion dollars, but whatever I have my daddy didn’t give me. I think I inherited, like, $11,000.”
In a Twitter post, Maza revealed the financial privileges he enjoys.
“My mom and her fiance are very wealthy thanks to a software company they started together when I was a kid. As a result I’ve gotten to live a life of tremendous privilege,” he stated. Maza confessed he had always had a “safety net” in the case his YouTube career doesn’t pan out. However, he sustains that “nobody is bankrolling” his projects and that his mother only donates $10 per month.
Maza’s lifestyle demonstrate the hypocrisy many on the Left demonstrate.
Leftist political figures talk a lot about privilege, racism, and oppression, but many of them live comfortable lifestyles.
One has to wonder if their support for government measures is meant to keep people impoverished while legacy leftists continue to live in splendor.
Similar hypocrisy is noticeable on gun policy.
Several oligarchs like Michael Bloomberg will clamor for civilian disarmament, while enjoying the services of bodyguards.
Maybe we should be talking about leftist privilege, since it’s clear many of them have vast amounts of wealth and a disproportionate amount of power compared to the rest of the populace.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
