  • ‘Diamond and Silk’ to Testify Before House Judiciary Committee on ‘Social Media Filtering’

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | 04-20-2018 | David Rutz
    The flamboyant video blogging duo of "Diamond and Silk" will testify before the House Judiciary Committee next week as part of a "hearing to examine social media filtering and policing practices." The House Judiciary Committee announced: On Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. the House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing to examine social media filtering and policing practices. This hearing will focus on what metrics social media platforms use to moderate content, how filtering decisions are made, and whether viewpoints have been silenced on some of the most popular and widely used platforms.

    So when do we get to put our majority-conservative House and Senate to good use and begin to take our country back? When is it our turn? The slime has oozed above the gunwales. Our president, vice president, their wives and their every conservative supporter - from our truly conservative representatives/senators to conservative voters - have become the brunt of every sort of attack from leftist ‘leadership’, their constituency, and the liberal left media/entertainment industry that empowers them. Obama, Clinton, Comey, Mueller, Rosenstein, by name, have all become trademarks for the unsurpassable height of doubledealing, double-standarded hypocrisy. They have been...

    A conservative student at Siena College is facing a disciplinary hearing after he posted 600 flyers around campus of an email in which a professor called conservative students “miserable” to work with. The "Notice of Charges" accuses Zachary Butler of actions that "adversely [affected] the health, welfare, and/or safety” of campus community members "or the name and/or reputation of the College."

    A report claims that the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is assisting Google with the policing of content on its YouTube platform, while conservatives face increased censorship. According to the Daily Caller, the SPLC “is one of the more than 100 nongovernment organizations (NGOs) and government agencies in YouTube’s ‘Trusted Flaggers’ program, a source with knowledge of the arrangement told TheDC.” “The SPLC and other program members help police YouTube for extremist content, ranging from so-called hate speech to terrorist recruiting videos,” the Daily Caller explained. “All of the groups in the program have confidentiality agreements, a spokesperson for...
  • YouTube Goes On Rampage Against Conservative Accounts; Blames "Newer Members" Of Mod Team

    YouTube has blamed "newer members" of it's 10,000 person fleet of content moderators for a virtual bloodbath of video takedowns, strikes, and account restrictions taking place across a large cross-section of conservative channels. The Google division announced the new moderators in December, tasked with spotting said fake news, along with misleading or extreme content in the wake of a raging debate over the effect of propaganda and inaccurate reporting after Hillary Clinton's 2016 election loss. Google essentially responded to the crackdown on conservatives with "our bad," after news of the mass censorship began to spread. "As we work to hire...

    Washington Examiner ^ | Feb 27, 2018 | Paul Bedard
    With unprecedented speed, the Trump administration has already implemented nearly two-thirds of the 334 agenda items called for by the Heritage Foundation, a pace faster than former President Reagan who embraced the conservative think tank’s legendary “Mandate for Leadership” blueprint. Trump... “is very active, very conservative, and very effective.”.....What’s more, he said, Trump hasn’t just focused on one agenda area, but he and his team has pushed through administrative moves on foreign policy, deregulation, immigration, tax reform and health care, moves often ignored by the media. “It is a huge volume that his administration has worked on and it is...

    Eric Greitens, a Democrat turned Republican, who also happens to be the Governor of the Show-Me State was indicted and booked last week on a felony invasion of privacy charge. The grand jury indictment stems from a photo that Greitens, a married man, allegedly snapped of a partially clad lover during a sexual tryst in the basement of his home in the spring of 2015, one year before his winning gubernatorial campaign. This is a big story, one that has great ramifications for state and national politics. It is a commentary on the crashing of a promising career. It includes...

    He's 37 years old, openly gay yet staunchly conservative and one of Chancellor Angela Merkel's loudest critics within her own party. Meet Jens Spahn, the ambitious "anti-Merkel" tapped to become Germany's new health minister. Spahn's promotion is widely seen as an attempt by Merkel to placate the conservative wing of her Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party, which felt left behind as she charted an ever more centrist course in recent years.

    The Conversation ^ | 02/02/2018
    Does going to college make students into political liberals? Conservative activists have claimed that universities brainwash students and indoctrinate them into believing a liberal ideology. The line of reasoning goes like this: Liberal college professors tell students “what to think,” and “what to think” is that conservatives and their positions are to be dismissed. A state lawmaker in Iowa has even suggested universities consider political affiliation in connection with hiring practices in order to balance out the distribution of political representation on the faculty. Conservatives on campus feel outnumbered, given that about 60 percent of faculty identify as politically liberal....

    When Cathy Newman’s absurdly hilarious interview with Jordan Peterson exploded across the internet, it wasn’t just because it was so funny. To a lot of conservatives, myself included, it sounded way too familiar. What we’ve known for a long time, Cathy Newman made blindingly obvious: Liberals really don’t listen. Maybe liberals can’t listen. I’m seeing again it in a book I’m reading on the history of America’s culture wars. Conservatives’ opposition to new views on morality in the 1910s and 20s was “driven by fear,” the author says. Never mind that when the Pope Pius XI weighed in on the...

    Since President Enrique Peña Nieto won in 2012, the Mexican presidential elections of 2018 has had one clear contender: Andrés Manuel López Obrador. Not one to give up easily, Mr. Lopez Obrador has twice run for president as candidate of the left-wing party the PRD (in 2006 and 2012) and has already expressed he will do so again, as the Morena candidate. Since its undeniable success in the mid-term elections, Morena, will now have a substantial amount of funding and a visible platform from which to prepare Mr. Lopez Obrador´s candidacy. Regarding Mexico´s three main political parties, there is less...

    Fact of the matter is, this is no longer a battle between the right and left. It is a battle between the right and wrong Last night’s State of the Union address from our nation’s greatest president since Ronald Reagan - President, Donald Trump - was, after our weathering two terms of circling in the Obama toilet, a breath of fresh air. And the same anti-American, Communist Party that has thoroughly infiltrated and occupied the left side of our Congress continued to expose themselves by simply keeping their seats during all the attempts our president made at inviting their cooperation...

    The New York Times ^ | January 22nd, 2018 | By JEREMY W. PETERS
    WASHINGTON — The Trump administration has pursued policies that have hewed remarkably close to the recommendations of a leading conservative think tank, the Heritage Foundation, which found in a new review that nearly two-thirds of its ideas had been carried out or embraced by the White House over the past year. Not one to dwell on the details of governing, President Trump has shown a considerable degree of deference to groups within the conservative movement like Heritage, leading to a rightward shift in social, environmental, immigration and foreign policy. The results, Heritage found in its review, exceeded even the first...

    But all powerful or not, social media giants like Google, Facebook and Twitter--not even with all their significant might--could get Hillary Clinton elected as president, but instead blame Fake News on their abysmal failure Smearing Conservative news sites as the chief purveyors of “Fake News” is a strictly feminist creation. Calling out Conservative publications as Fake News took rise in the immediate aftermath of Hillary Clinton’s stunning, historic and impossible-to-accept loss to Donald Trump. Left in exile by the outcome of Election 2016, the Democrats moved with lightning speed to drop the Fake News smear on the doorstep of Conservative...
