  • Twitter Blocks Marsha Blackburn Campaign Announcement Video for ‘Inflammatory’ Pro-Life Message

    10/10/2017 8:44:11 AM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 23 replies
    Twitter has blocked Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn's (Tenn.) Senate campaign announcement ad, ruling that a pro-life statement was "inflammatory." At one point in the video, Blackburn, who announced last week that she is running for the Senate in Tennessee, heralded how she "stopped the sale of baby body parts," a reference to her investigation into Planned Parenthood's reported practice of "donating" body parts in return for monetary compensation. But a Twitter representative told the Blackburn campaign that Twitter blocked the ad from being promoted, calling it "an inflammatory statement that is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction," the Associated...

    Rep. Marsha Blackburn said Monday that the Senate needs to “show some spine” and help fix the heath insurance problem. “President Trump, I believe, is looking to solve the problem. The problem is we’ve got the Senate who cannot seem to — you know they like to work in gangs. We’ve had the gang of seven or eight. I want the gang of 51. I want the Senate to show spine and fix this problem,” Ms. Blackburn, Tennessee Republican, said on CNN. Mr. Trumptweeted over the weekend to slam the “bailouts” for members of Congress buying insurance on the Obamacare...

    A new congressional letter circulating among lawmakers charges the William, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation is a “lawless, ‘Pay-to-Play’ enterprise that has been operating under a cloak of philanthropy for years.” The letter, obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation, is authored by Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn who plans to send it to FBI Director James Comey, Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen and Federal Trade Commission chairwoman Edith Ramirez. The letter calls upon the three agencies to launch a “public corruption” investigation into the ties between Clinton Foundation donors and Hillary Clinton’s policies as secretary of state. The...

    Constituents in my congressional district routinely ask me about the chances of Hillary Clinton being elected President. Hard-working Tennesseans are gravely concerned about what another four years of Obama-like policies will do to our country. They know America is headed in the wrong direction. However, I am convinced that Hillary Clinton will not be elected because she is untrustworthy and ineffective.

    Ex-mayor and Labour councillor calls to deport Israelis to US, claims Israel behind US school shooting and ISIS terror attacks. Yet another member of the UK Labour Party has stirred up controversy with a series of virulently anti-Israel comments accusing the Jewish state of a litany of atrocities and calling for the ethnic cleansing of Jews from Israel. After a week in which both former London mayor and Labour activist Ken Livingstone and Labour MP Naz Shah were suspended for anti-Semitic comments, the former mayor of Blackburn has come under fire for social media comments posted less than a year...

    INDIANAPOLIS - Prosecutors say a third suspect should be charged with killing a pastor's pregnant wife even if he didn't pull the trigger.

Police believe Gordon was a lookout while two others went inside to rob the home of Davey and Amanda Blackburn. Larry Taylor Jr. and Jalen Watson already face charges of murder and robbery in the Blackburn case. Gordon faces two counts of murder, along with burglary, robbery and theft. The three men are accused of breaking into the Blackburn home on...

    Imagine for a moment that come November of 2016 just as the presidential election was about to take place Hillary Clinton dropped out of the race as the Democratic nominee and President Barack Obama postponed the election indefinitely. ThereÂ’d be insurrection in the streets. Yet that is exactly what Speaker Boehner and the cabal that currently runs the House Republican Conference did when Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy dropped out of the Speaker race last week. And this effort to fix the election for Speaker is being actively abetted by the establishment media, who act like they donÂ’t care or see...

    With unacceptable candidates Kevin McCarthy and Paul Ryan now smushed-up in our wheelwell, America's resurgent right rolls-on, retaining effective veto power over the Republican Party's choice of new leader in the US House as we all now contemplate wiser, far more palatable candidates. Darrell Issa always gave me high hopes with all his investigations- inquiries which never seem to result in nailing the bad guys to the wall. Isn't that a microcosm of today's weak-kneed Gee-Oh-Pee establishment? Lot of noise, but no effective challenge whatsoever? Alas, we need a dragon-slayer in the Speaker's seat, and Rep. Issa seems to lack the charisma and ability to punch-it-into-the-enzone...
