    Facebook is back in business suppressing conservative voices, and the Washington Post is back in business as identifying everything bad as conservative.  At least the WaPo reversed itself, while Facebook persists. First, the ridiculous story from the WaPo (hat tip: Breitbart) Far-right leader Louis Farrakhan? pic.twitter.com/XDId73kesxAfter considerable laughter at its expense, Bezos's P.R. operation relented: We have deleted this tweet because it incorrectly included Louis Farrakhan, who has espoused anti-Semitic views, in a list of far-right leaders. Facebook banned extremist figures including Farrakhan, Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos for being "dangerous" https://t.co/iCI8pzK6aR pic.twitter.com/m87t1fglrZ — The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) May 2, 2019...

    Former US Attorney Joe diGenova joined Lou Dobbs on Tuesday night following the Washington Posts latest junk bombshell that Robert Mueller objected to Barrs summary of the Russia probe. diGenova blasted Mueller and his sidekick Andrew Weissmann for this latest stunt in their attempt at a presidential coup. Joe deGenova: The bottom line here is this is a continuation of a very bad process here that Bob Mueller started by hiring a bunch of Demcrats and having them led by Andrew Weissmann who showed up at Hillary Clintons so-called victory party and broke into tears with her. This is an...

    Washington Compost ^ | April 29, 2019 | Jonathan M. Metzl
    Its time to talk about what it means to be white in the United States. Thats what I was trying to do Saturday afternoon at the Politics and Prose bookstore in Northwest Washington when I was interrupted by a group of white nationalists. Ironically, the protesters chant This land is our land served only to reinforce my point. For too long, many white Americans have avoided this conversation, and weve done so for a reason: We dont have to see the color white. Race scholars often argue that white privilege broadly means not needing to reflect on whiteness....

    President Donald Trump during a Saturday rally in Wisconsin described a phone call with the leader of Saudi Arabia in which he demanded more money from the oil-rich nation. Look, Saudi Arabia, very rich country, we defend them, we subsidize Saudi Arabia. They have nothing but cash, right? We subsidize them. And they buy a lot from us, $450 billion they bought, Trump began. You know, You had people wanting to cut off Saudi Arabia. They bought $450 billion. I dont want to lose em! But the military, we subsidize Saudi Arabia! I called the King, he continued. I like...

  • Christians murdered in Sri Lanka? Washington Post makes it about the far-right

    04/22/2019 4:15:28 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 32 replies
    It has not even been 48 hours, and at least one major American newsroom has found a way to make the deadly Sri Lanka Easter bombings, which targeted Christians and claimed an estimated 290 lives, about right-wing fearmongering. Christianity under attack? Sri Lanka church bombings stoke far-right anger in the West, reads the headline to a Washington Post article published Monday morning. This feels like a bizarre and even more tasteless iteration of the press beloved Republicans pounce trope, where an extremely newsworthy event is used as the backdrop to a larger meta-story about how members of the Right are...

    A group of parents who fought to keep transgender students out of locker rooms and bathrooms that match their gender identity abruptly dropped their lawsuit against a Chicago-area school district, ending a four-year legal battle that drew national attention. Students and Parents for Privacy sued Township High School District 211 in Palatine, Ill., after the school board, facing pressure from the Obama administration, voted to allow a transgender girl to use the girls’ locker room. The case drew national attention as schools throughout the country grappled with accommodating transgender people in bathrooms and locker rooms,(snip) In 2016, Students and Parents...

    Throughout most of southern Ohio, residents who watch cable news are predominantly glued to one channel: Fox News. People there dont watch Fox News to know what to think; they already know what they think, and they avoid news channels that insult their intelligence and core beliefs. Yes, Fox News is an echo chamber for the right, but no more than CNN and MSNBC are for the left, as far as conservatives are concerned. To be fair, when a Democrat is in the White House, the networks switch places, with Fox News criticizing every move, and MSNBC and CNN defending...

    President Trumps attorneys and the White House are moving to resist a growing number of congressional requests for information, increasing the likelihood of a protracted legal fight that could test the power of congressional subpoenas. The building battle will shape how much material House Democrats will be able to obtain about Trumps policies and personal finances through multiple investigations launched by various congressional committees.

    The White House is moving to dissolve the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and reorganize the agencys responsibilities into three existing departments in order to drive what is needed to support the mission in all of government. When we really look at the need for government overall, and we looked at the [OPMs] design to support those needs, there was a fundamental structural misalignment between the challenges of today around our workforce and what OPM was conditioned to do, Margaret Weichert, deputy director for management at the Office of Management and Budget and acting OPM director, told The Daily Caller...

    Most news consumers understand that media, in general, plays favorites. They cheer on and protect Designated Heroes, and with seemingly boundless energy relish every opportunity to assail Designated Villains. Weve long known, from polling and other quantifiable metrics, that journalists have very pronounced political biases. Even as journalists often indignantly tout the objectivity of their work product and defend the credibility of others in their profession, the sorry results stand for themselves. Its no longer controversialother than in the most surreal, eye-rolling conversations with committed left-wing partisansto say the American media leans overwhelmingly left and has a strong preference for...

    With Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's reelection victory secured, the Trump administration is preparing to roll out Jared Kushner's "peace plan" as early as this month, sources familiar with the plan tell ABC News. President Donald Trump has been briefed on the plan, which Kushner and a small "peace team" have been quietly working on for months. The text itself remains a closely guarded secret -- even within the White House -- and has only been seen in its entirety by four people within the administration, the sources said.

The story, called Black Friday brawl videos are how rich people shame the poor, ONeil says that rich people report on Black Friday violence in order to make fun of and shame poor people. Dont think that people should be brawling in a Wal-Mart or mall? Then youre a rich snob, ONeil explains. You take your wealth for granted, he writes, and make fun of people fighting in Best Buy because youre privileged.

    Black Friday Brawl Videos Are How Rich People Shame The Poor Stop Gawking. By Luke O'Neil November 28 The biggest movie in the country right now is The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, a film in which the ostentatiously wealthy people of Panems capital rule over the poorer districts from which tributes are selected each year to kill each other in a violent media spectacle. Its a grotesque display in which the lives of the impoverished are offered up as entertainment for the comfortable. Its hard to see the film and not think of the way TV news has covered...

    Once again, Democrats are proving that in order to be a member of the Donkey Party you have to have been born without the hypocrisy gene. On Friday, the Washington Post, not much for journalistic ethics and integrity these days, ran with a story lamenting a Trump administration proposal to relocate as in, dump masses of illegal aliens in cities where political rivals live. The Post noted: White House officials have tried to pressure U.S. immigration authorities to release detainees onto the streets of sanctuary cities to retaliate against President Trumps political adversaries, according to Department of Homeland...
