    This war originated with President Trump’s winning of the 2016 Presidency, but I actually think it began some years back with the signing of the Patriot Act. That was the beginning of our loss of freedom, or that is what I think. Lets get a grip on what the Patriot Act meant to our freedoms, especially our freedom of speech; and then I will go on to the new Facebook news. Throughout recorded time, oligarchical institutions – those where power is held by very few – have controlled, limited and restricted the five stages of patriotism in one way...

    Denver, Colo., Jul 18, 2017 / 05:09 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- In the last 24 hours more than twenty Catholic pages, some with millions of followers, have been blocked by Facebook for unknown reasons. Of the known affected pages, 21 are based in Brazil, and four are English-language pages, with administrators in the U.S. and Africa. Most of the blocked pages had significant followings - between hundreds of thousands and up to 6 million followers each. One of the blocked English-language fanpages was “Jesus and Mary”, which had 1.7 million followers. The page’s main cover photo was of the sacred hearts...

    Social media giant Facebook blocked more than two dozen conservative Catholic pages in a 24-hour period, some with millions of followers, saying only they were “suspected of suspicious activities.” Facebook seemed to target only conservative Catholic pages with a significant following, since almost all had between hundreds of thousands and up to six million followers, according to Catholic News Agency (CNA), which broke the story.
  • Village president: 'I owe nobody an apology' for posts (calls for killing all muslims)

    Kalkaska’s village president’s continued refusal to apologize for his Facebook posts may trigger an attempt to remove him from office. A series of posts village President Jeff Sieting shared on his personal Facebook page — including one that appeared to call for the killing of Muslims — caught Cindy Anderson’s eye several weeks ago. She and others fruitlessly sought Sieting’s apology at a June 26 village meeting. Anderson, a real estate broker who owns land in the county and grew up near Kalkaska, returned for Monday’s village council meeting and asked Sieting if he thinks he should apologize for the...

    The future of online news outlets depends on their staying independent no matter how rough the boat ride. Struggling online news outlets would have to be more than just hopelessly naive to believe that a relatively new ‘New Media Alliance’ leading the battle for survival up against Internet giants Google and Facebook is fighting for them. How could any online outlet believe in an Alliance in which the New York Times is an active member? Hello New Media Alliance? Independent news outlets calling!

    Mark Zuckerberg has been traveling around the country meeting people while denying he has any intentions of running for office. And yet, here he is making what amounts to policy recommendation for the United States. You could call this the first major plank in his non-platform. From his Facebook post: Priscilla and I spent the weekend around Homer, Alaska as part of the Year of Travel challenge. It’s beautiful here. One thing that stood out to us is how different Alaska’s social safety net programs are in a way that provides some good lessons for the rest of our country....

These drives are evidently so large that they can store more than 20,000 documents and hundreds of thousands of pages.Hence if you have ever photocopied personal materials (e.g., social security numbers, checking info, personal data) it is likely on that hard drive.

    This week, John looks at the rapid changes occurring across multiple fronts. From the Supreme Court, to genetic engineering, changes are occurring at an ever-increasing pace which will eventually result in the return of Christ in fulfillment of His promise. In the interim, we must be vigilant to remain focused on our walks, our witness and our conduct to ensure that we are not a stumbling block for those who have yet to know the saving grace and forgiveness of the One who can satisfy the longing of our spirits. Remember, when things seem to be falling apart, they are...

    Greetings from lovely Aspen, Colorado, where I am attending the Aspen Ideas Festival as part of their scholar program. I have no idea how I ended up in this program, as I did not apply for it, and my relationship with the Ideas Festival over the years has been mostly made up of mocking their event subject matter on Twitter (“Rotary: rediscovering the beauty of a phone which expects something of us, as opposed to the reverse” #aspenideas). But I am here nonetheless, ready for the live recording of PodSaveAmerica and the session on whether Robots are the future of...

    CHICAGO, Illinois, June 27, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Facebook communities can fill the void left by decreasing religious participation, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg suggested last week. Zuckerberg wants groups formed on his social media platform to fill the role in people’s lives once held by churches and groups such as little league teams. People are in need of purpose and support, the millennial social media mogul said, and Facebook groups can provide that meaning. "It's so striking that for decades, membership in all kinds of groups has declined as much as one-quarter," Zuckerberg said. "That's a lot of people who now...

    Google and Facebook combined earn roughly 50 percent of all global advertisement revenue, according to Axios. The two tech giants dwarf all other corporations in the industry with Google and Facebook respectively making $80.8 billion and $36.3 billion in 2017. Besides three other tech conglomerates based in China, the next 12 companies — which includes Amazon, Microsoft, Verizon, Pandora, Twitter, Snapchat, and Yelp — bring in roughly half of what Google collects in ad revenue annually, reports Axios. Combined, the two tech companies account for 90 percent of the growth in new ad revenue. Their dominance over others in the...

Now it’s Mark Zuckerberg.

    Columbus City Schools is "working toward the termination" of Chris Dodds, a garage assistant supervisor who posted an anti-LGBTQ message on social media ahead of the Columbus Pride Parade on Saturday. “I hope this event turns out like the Boston Marathon a few year’s back. All f-g's should be killed or at least relocated," Dodds wrote in a message posted to the Columbus Pride Parade's Facebook page. In an email sent to NBC Out, a spokesperson for Columbus City Schools, Jacqueline Bryant, confirmed the district is "working toward the termination of Mr. Dodds for these highly inappropriate comments."
