  • TWITTER 'ENFORCING ISLAMIC BLASPHEMY LAW'

    Twitter is virtually enforcing Pakistan’s notorious blasphemy law, contends an author who recently was informed by the social-media company of a complaint that his book analyzing the minds of Islamic terrorists violated the Muslim-majority nation’s notorious statute. “It’s just absolutely surreal and Kafkaesque that a social-media giant in the free world is trying to enforce blasphemy laws — or, for now, carrying the message,” said Jamie Glazov, the author of “Jihadist Psychopath.” It was a tweet promoting his book that drew the complaint. Twitter then informed Glazov of the complaint and suggested he hire a lawyer. Referring to the Pakistani...

    Lady Gaga blasts Pence as ‘worst representation of what it means to be Christian’ By Justin Wise - 01/20/19 09:02 PM EST Lady Gaga on Saturday condemned Vice President Pence for thinking "it's acceptable that his wife works at a school that bans LGBTQ" people, calling Pence the "worst representation" of Christianity. “To Mike Pence who thinks it's acceptable that his wife works at a school that bans LGBTQ. You are wrong," Gaga said during a performance at Park MGM in Las Vegas, according to The Las Vegas Review-Journal. "You said you should not discriminate against Christianity. You are the...
  • On CNN, Buzzfeed Defends Dubious Report With Shady Deflections

    Buzzfeed News got into hot water over the weekend, after the Special Counsel’s Office issued a rare public rebuke regarding the outlet’s claim President Trump directed his attorney to lie to Congress. Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith and co-author of the dubious piece Anthony Cormier appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources to defend themselves and “to talk about process”, but what viewers got were shady deflections. After being introduced by host Brian Stelter, Smith shared his pleasure for being on the show: “I'm glad you began with the question of the truth of the allegations because ultimately, this is a media show, we're...

    Big League Politics ^ | 10/20/19 | Peter D'Abrosca
    According to a source inside of #NeverTrump stalwart National Review, who spoke to Big League Politics on the condition of anonymity, the magazine is in turmoil after publishing a now-deleted piece bashing the Covington Catholic High School students. Deputy managing editor Nicholas Frankovich penned a piece called “The Covington Students Might as Well Have Just Spit on the Cross,” which was published at 3 a.m. on Sunday. “The guy who posted that did it at 3am without running it by anyone,” an employee familiar wit the situation told Big League Politics. The source said that editor Rich Lowry is “deeply...
  • How things will go down if Ginsburg leaves the SCOTUS

    American Thinker ^ | 20 Jan, 2019 | Steve Grammatico
    Mueller, the wall impasse, the shutdown, the "postponement" of the SOTU – all are skirmishes in the undeclared war on President Trump waged by Democrats, the Deep State, and the compliant media. A decisive battle will be enjoined if Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies or resigns this year. Nothing scares the left more than the prospect of Trump filling another seat on the SCOTUS with a young, fire-breathing constitutionalist who would join with Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh to form a conservative bloc for the ages. Pelosi and Schumer are praying that Justice Ginsburg survives and remains on the bench until...

    What the hell!? This alarms hell out of me. I remember reading about the 93 total people, only 8 or 9 of which were actual Congress Critters. They mentioned Pelosi's family included on the plane. The "Source URL" link above is to a Free Republic thread on the topic. That thread provides a CNN link. The FR thread was posted at 5:24 PM on 01/18/2019 (is it safe to assume PST?). The linked CNN article was "Updated 7:02 PM ET, Fri January 18, 2019". That would have been 4:02 PM PT. So, today I'm in a discussion about this in...

    After a two month-long hiatus, Real Time With Bill Maher returned to the airwaves Friday. This episode was true to form when it comes to Trump-bashing, with the eponymous host calling President Trump a “dangerous menace” and a “terrorist.” Maher weighed in on the government shutdown. According to Maher, “Trump was very mad that he didn’t get his, you know, Lego wall set for Christmas.” Maher expressed his wish that “Democrats don’t cave” and argued that their position should be “Trump is holding this country hostage, you don’t deal with terrorists,” effectively comparing the President of the United States to...

    Gateway Pundit ^ | January 20, 2019 | Cristina Laila
    Jack Morrissey, a Hollywood Producer who is known for projects such as Beauty and the Beast and the Twilight Saga, called for minor teen high school boys to be murdered in a violent, gruesome manner. Mr. Morrissey joined the hate-filled media and piled on the Covington Catholic students after deceptively edited videos of the teens were posted to Twitter accusing them of harassing a Native American man. Full video of the incident shows the teens did nothing wrong — they were ambushed by blacks calling them “crackers” and the Native Indian man is a far left activist who harassed the...

    A mother of a child who appeared in the viral video of students from Covington Catholic High School being confronted by Nathan Phillips, a leftist activist with a drum, tells the Gateway Pundit that the children have been victimized twice, “first by the media, then their own Diocese.” The students and the mothers hope that the Trump administration will stand up for them. On Sunday, we spoke with a friend of the most prominent student in the video, as well as a 14-year-year old who is currently being targeted for being in the video. We additionally interviewed the boy’s mother...

    The [Duke] Chronicle ^ | 01/16/2019 | Nathan Heffernan
    In the past few years, anti-politically correct (PC) movements have grown in popularity and vigor. Groups of young college conservatives have criticized the liberal hold on universities and conservative activists have mocked censorship and “sensitivity” among young millennials. The sentiment that “people get offended by anything these days” seems to be growing among the larger population. Scandals of comedians getting booted from gigs for racially insensitive remarks or being fired from hosting an awards ceremony due to old homophobic tweets have sparked discussion over whether PC culture has gone too far. Even at Duke, students and professors complain about the...

  • By Banishing the Work of Great Artists We Are Punishing Everyone

    01/20/2019 3:13:37 PM PST · by jocon307 · 12 replies
    I have a new fear. And this one’s a doozy. Having weathered more than one social-­media s- -t storm, I’m one column away from the round of mob opprobrium that sinks my career for good. A single unacceptable sentiment, a word usage misconstrued, a sentence taken out of context suffices these days to implode a reputation decades in the making and to trigger ­McCarthyite blacklisting. But that isn’t the fear in its entirety. Suppose a perceived violation of progressive orthodoxy translates into the kind of institutional cowardice on display in the forced resignation of Ian Buruma from The New York Review...

    After Democratic Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii (with an assist from her California colleague Kamala Harris and John Kennedy) decided to declare the Knights of Columbus a terrorist group or something, there was some significant pushback from the rest of the upper chamber. They went so far as to pass a unanimous consent decree (introduced by Ben Sasse) reaffirming the unconstitutionality of religious tests for office and rebuking the Senators raising these issues. So that probably showed Hirono the error of her ways and convinced her to slow her roll, right?Don’t be silly. She went after Sasse as some...

    Did somebody hack the Washington Post website?That was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the title of this WaPo editorial. Shortly after Nancy Pelosi declared that President Trump’s offer of a deal yesterday was “a non-starter,” the newspaper’s editorial board led with the title, “Make a Deal. Save the Dreamers.”To be sure, the editorial goes to great lengths to include a barrage of insults to the President before getting to the meat of their argument. They ensure their liberal bona fides by declaring that he doesn’t deserve to be rewarded for “taking the government hostage”...

    Critics are pushing back against the portrayal of students from Covington Catholic High School as racist, after a confrontation between the school and a Native American counter-demonstrator at the March for Life on Friday. The headline from the Associated Press at the Hollywood Reporter — repeated in some form by outlets across the country — read: “Students in ‘Make America Great Again’ Hats Mock Native Americans After Washington Rally.” CNN declared: “Teens in Make America Great Again hats taunted a Native American elder at the Lincoln Memorial.” A viral video showed a group of male students cavorting on the steps...
