    The day has finally arrived when our online media monopolies are blatantly censoring the news that Americans can see. Chrissy Clark writes at The Federalist: Facebook and YouTube are removing all content from their platforms that mentions the anti-Trump whistleblower's name, whom news outlets including RealClearInvestigations have publicly identified as CIA analyst Eric Ciaramella. No law bans media outlets or any person but the intelligence community inspector general from making the whistleblower's name public. A Facebook spokesperson said the platform will remove "any and all mention of the potential whistleblower's name.

    Donald Trump Jr., a man who shares the same name as the President of the United States and is currently the executive vice president of the Trump Organization, said with a straight face on Wednesday night that he wished his name was Hunter Biden so he could “make millions off my father's presidency.” During an appearance on Fox News’ Hannity to hawk his upcoming book Triggered, Trump Jr. quickly turned his sights on the impeachment inquiry his father is currently facing. After Trump Jr. called it a “sham” and claimed “the reasonable people in the middle” support his dad, Sean...

    A fake video that shows a likeness of President Trump murdering journalists, condemned Monday by the White House, does not violate YouTube's rules. According to the Google-owned video platform, some content that does not violate the company's rules may still be inappropriate for some audiences. In those cases, age restrictions can be applied. "For content containing violence that is clearly fictional, we age-restrict and display a warning interstitial. We applied these protections to this video," the YouTube spokesperson told Fox News on Monday.
  • Students Call Obama Immigration Quote Racist, While Thinking it was Said by President Trump (VIDEO)

    07/20/2019 8:55:24 PM PDT · by mplc51 · 13 replies
    Students at Georgetown University deemed a quote from Barack Obama to be racist because they thought it was said by Donald Trump. Campus Reform reporter Cabot Phillips went to Georgetown University and asked students how they felt about the quote, which they near universally condemned. The quote was from Obama’s 2014 address about immigration. He had said, “we are a nation of laws. Undocumented workers broke our immigration laws, and I believe that they must be held accountable, especially those who may be dangerous. That’s why over the past six years deportations of criminals are up 80 percent, and that’s...

    The Polish conservative newspaper, Gazeta Polska, has said it will distribute "LGBT-free zone" stickers with its next issue. The stickers show a black cross superimposed on a rainbow flag. The weekly publication - which has a circulation of around 110,000 - openly supports the conservative governing Law and Justice party (PiS). The move was criticised by the US ambassador to Poland, who said the stickers promoted hatred. The newspaper's editor said his own views and those of the ambassador should both be respected. A preview of the sticker was posted on Gazeta Polska's Twitter feed on Wednesday and it is...

    Support for U.S. President Donald Trump increased slightly among Republicans after he lashed out on Twitter over the weekend in a racially charged attack on four minority Democratic congresswomen, a Reuters/Ipsos public opinion poll shows. The national survey, conducted on Monday and Tuesday after Trump told the lawmakers they should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” showed his net approval among members of his Republican Party rose by 5 percentage points to 72%, compared with a similar poll that ran last week. Trump, who is seeking re-election next year, has...

    An 11-year-old Tennessee girl who told her classmates to stop making the Nazi salute was sent to the principal’s office, her father said in a tweet in which he asked the public to send her messages of support. Keith Jacks Gamble, chair of the Department of Economics and Finance at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreeboro, Tennessee, posted his request on Tuesday. Gamble said that a student at his daughter’s McFadden School of Excellence in Murfreesboro was assigned to play Hitler for the school’s Living History project and to make the Sieg Heil salute.

    **SNIP** A few months ago, in a cascade of disgraces both Gov. Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring admitted to wearing blackface, then Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax was accused of sexual assault by two women. Now the story has seemingly disappeared from the front pages, or any pages, of the local news outlets. **SNIP** University of Virginia political analyst Kyle Kondik says Northam remains in office for a number of reasons. “For one thing, Fairfax is even more toxic than he is, and the accusations against the lieutenant governor help insulate the governor. But I also think the governor...

    A political nuke has detonated in Silicon Valley, and Google is ground zero. Late Tuesday, excerpts from a reportedly leaked internal Google document were published by The Daily Caller. The excerpts, if accurate, confirm what conservatives have long suspected — that conservatives are being actively suppressed by arguably the most powerful company in the world. The Daily Caller reported that a Google blacklist of websites includes right-leaning publishers such as the Conservative Tribune (a property of The Western Journal), as well as “Gateway Pundit, Matt Walsh’s blog, Gary North’s blog ‘teapartyeconomist.com,’ Caroline Glick’s website … and the website of the...

    ROCKVILLE, Md. — Prosecutors have dropped a criminal case against a Maryland woman who was charged with assaulting White House counselor Kellyanne Conway during a confrontation last year at a restaurant in a Washington suburb. A trial for Mary Elizabeth Inabinett, 63, of Chevy Chase, was scheduled to start Monday morning in Montgomery County, Maryland. Instead, a county prosecutor asked a judge to dismiss the charges. Police had charged Inabinett last November with second-degree assault and disorderly conduct. Conway told police she was attending a birthday party with her teenage daughter at a Mexican restaurant in Bethesda, Maryland, last October...

    RUSH: So let me see if I understand this — and you may not have heard this. There was news out today that General Michael Flynn, a dedicated military veteran, former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (that’s the defense department’s version of the CIA), back during the Obama administration, by the way — and Obama hated this guy. He didn’t like Flynn at all. Michael Flynn was one of the first endorsers of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, and he was named during the transition to head up the national security apparatus in the White House. And Director of National...

    The Washington establishment has a strange code of justice that only makes sense to the bipartisan pack of House and Senate members who belong to it, but to the rest of America, it’s a head-shaking phenomenon. As you may have heard, Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, a champion of POTUS Donald Trump’s immigration reform and border security policies, has been stripped of his committee assignments for his alleged ‘praise’ of “white supremacy” and “white nationalism.” According to a New York Times story by reporter Trip Gabriel, the ‘full’ quote that he attributed to King was: “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization...
