  • Is Google Working with Liberal Groups Snuff Out Conservative Websites?

    PJ Media ^ | August 19, 2017 | Paula Bolyard
    Google revealed in a blog post that it is now using machine learning to document "hate crimes and events" in America. They've partnered with liberal groups like ProPublica, BuzzFeed News, and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to make information about "hate events" easily accessible to journalists. And now, there are troubling signs that this tool could be used to ferret out writers and websites that run afoul of the progressive orthodoxy. In the announcement, Simon Rogers, data editor of Google News Labs, wrote: Now, with ProPublica, we are launching a new machine learning tool to help journalists covering hate...

    Current and former members of the New York City Police Department rallied in Brooklyn Saturday in support of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. According to the Associated Press (via ESPN.com), approximately 75 "mostly minority" officers attended the rally and wore T-shirts featuring the hashtag "#imwithkap." Frank Serpico, who was played by Al Pacino in the 1973 film Serpico that depicted police corruption, was also in attendance. "He's trying to hold up this government up to our founding fathers," Serpico told the AP. Kaepernick, 29, has been an unrestricted free agent since he parted ways with the 49ers in...

    The leftist extremists are the true "threat," not the "marginal bozos" of universally condemned hate groups, and "idiot Republicans" are getting sucked into the "ludicrous and ridiculous... charade... to destroy the presidency of Donald Trump," best-selling author David Horowitz told Newsmax TV. "If there's a serious fascist movement in America, it's the left," Horowitz told guest host Jonathan Gilliam on Thursday's "The Schnitt Show." "They're the ones who go around to cities picking fights, violence — they want to shut up other people. Even these alt-right clowns were not about shutting up the opposition and suppressing it. "One fascism in...

  • Second Kissimmee (Florida) Police Officer dies after Friday night shooting (and perp caught)

    A second Kissimmee Police officer has died after a Friday night attack on law enforcement. Sgt. Richard “Sam” Howard died Saturday from gunshot wounds he suffered when he and fellow officer Matthew Baxter were shot during a routine stop in the McLaren Circle area, according to a department spokeswoman. Baxter died Friday night shortly after the shooting. Kissimmee Police Chief Jeff O’Dell said the officers were investigating three suspicious people about 9:30 p.m. near Palmway and Cypress streets when a “scuffle” broke out. That’s when police say Marine veteran Everett Glenn Miller, 45, shot the officers. The officers — who...

Appearing on Katz’s 1140 AM WRVA radio program, Moran explained the rapidly moving sequence of events that began at 11:22 a.m. when he phoned Governor McAuliffe from the City of Charlottesville Command Center located on the sixth floor of the Wells Fargo building in downtown Charlottesville, just a few blocks from Emancipation Park. “In light of the escalating violence we had...

    Venezuela's ousted chief prosecutor and her husband — two of President Nicolas Maduro's most outspoken critics — fled the country and landed Friday afternoon in Colombia. Luisa Ortega Diaz and German Ferrer arrived in Bogota aboard a private plane traveling from Aruba, Colombian migration authorities said in a statement. The couple didn't request asylum, according to a senior Colombian official speaking on condition of anonymity because he's not authorized to discuss the politically sensitive case. Ortega and Ferrer have long been aligned with Venezuela's ruling socialist party but recently broke with Maduro, publicly denouncing his push to convene a constitutional...

    A CEO who bailed on President Donald Trump’s now-defunct American Manufacturing Council imported workers to take jobs in the United States. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich left Trump’s manufacturing council after he disagreed with the response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. “I resigned because I want to make progress, while many in Washington seem more concerned with attacking anyone who disagrees with them,’’ Krzanich wrote in a blog post. “We should honor—not attack—those who have stood up for equality and other cherished American values.’’ But, as Trump’s manufacturing council was set up to bring back manufacturing and jobs to the...

    The video that appeared more often than any other on my TV screen this past week showed protestors toppling a statue of a confederate soldier in Durham, North Carolina. Then kicking it, stomping on it, spitting at it.The Workers World Party is the group that pulled off this feat and they were also involved in the violent conflict in Charlottesville.So, who are they? You didn’t learn much about them if you watched CNN or even Fox News. The commentators on the regular cable channels were too focused on racists and white nationalists and why Donald Trump wasn’t condemning them enough....

    A Missouri lawmaker is under mounting pressure to resign after she said on social media she hopes President Trump is assassinated, following his response to violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville. Democratic state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal went on her personal Facebook page Thursday morning to vent two days after the president blamed “both sides” for the brutality. “I put up a statement saying, ‘I really hate Trump. He’s causing trauma and nightmares.’ That was my original post,” she told the Kansas City Star. The Facebook post received many responses, Chappelle-Nadal said, and to one she replied, “I hope Trump is assassinated!”

    Washington Examiner ^ | August 18, 2017 | Daniel Chaitin
    A new White House petition this week is calling on the Trump administration to formally recognize the Antifa movement as a terrorist organization. "AntiFa has earned this title due to its violent actions in multiple cities and their influence in the killings of multiple police officers throughout the United States," the petition, started Thursday, states. Antifa is short for anti-fascists, and the people involved are generally extreme leftists known for their face-offs with right-wing activists, including recently in Berkeley, Calif. Antifa counter-protesters made an appearance in Charlottesville, Va. this past weekend and clashed with white supremacy and neo-Nazi groups protesting...

    Piers Morgan -- a citizen of the country America defeated in two wars to gain and retain our independence -- keeps telling Americans that our constitution is deficient. His usual target is the Second Amendment, but these days, he's going after the First Amendment, as well. In the wake of Charlottesville, Morgan's solution to hate speech is to ban it by amending and limiting free speech protections: Conservative writer Ben Shapiro was having none of it, touching off this Twitter exchange, which predictably ended poorly for the pompous Brit. After Shapiro corrected his bad misrepresentation and ignorance of relevant caselaw,...

    Vice President Mike Pence compared President Donald Trump to former President Teddy Roosevelt, who believed white people were “the forward race.” Speaking on Tuesday, just days after violence at a white supremacist rally left one person dead, Pence made the unfortunate comparison between the U.S.’ 26th president and Trump. “In President Donald Trump, the United States once again has a president whose vision, energy and can-do spirit is reminiscent of President Teddy Roosevelt,” Pence said in comments reported by Guardian correspondent Ben Jacobs.

    Former Speaker of the House and longtime Trump supporter Newt Gingrich is seriously worried about the future of Donald Trump’s presidency. Gingrich, who has consistently been one of Trump’s most optimistic supporters, said Friday morning that Trump is more isolated than he realizes and needs to make “serious changes” if he’s going to have a stable presidency. “I think he’s in a position right now where he’s much more isolated than he realizes,” Gingrich said in an interview with Fox News’ Bill Hemmer. “On the Hill, he has far more people willing to sit to one side and not help...

    A federal grand jury Thursday indicted two former information technology (IT) aides of Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz — Pakistani-born Imran Awan and his wife Hina Alvi — on four counts of conspiracy in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The FBI arrested Awan at Dulles International Airport July 24 as he was preparing to board a flight to Pakistan. When his wife Alvi left the U.S. for Pakistan in March, federal authorities found more than $12,000 in cash hidden in a suitcase. She had withdrawn the couple’s three children from local schools and does not intend...

    Only those who are so-called “woke” (I just threw up in my mouth) are deserving of statues in American history. That’s what CNN commentator Angela Rye said during a panel discussion with CNN’s Kate Bolduan. As the nation descends into chaos concerning political commentary over the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia that left scores of people injured and one woman dead, we’re on the discussion of statues. White nationalists descended into the city last Saturday to supposedly protest the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. Far left counter protesters arrived and skirmishes broke out. It culminated when a...
