    How do we resist the tsunami of lies and leftist propaganda thrown at us 24/7 by the various "news" venues, Hollywood, celebrities, academia, the courts, and corrupt politicians? I like most of my fellow Republicans and conservatives was a victim of the progressive paradigm, embedded in all our institutions of culture, from academia to Hollywood to the media. ...the story that we had accepted, like suckers, was the idea that fascism and Nazism are inherently “right wing.”—Dinesh D’Souza “The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left” For some years now I have been shouting from the rooftops...
  • Banning Transgender Troops Could Cost U.S.$960 Million, Report Says

    A new report estimates banning transgender service members would set the U.S. back $960 million, challenging President Donald Trump's pro-ban argument about "the tremendous medical costs" associated with permitting transgender people to serve in the military. The report, co-authored by the Palm Center and current and retired professors at the Naval Postgraduate School, estimates the cost to replace transgender service members would be 100 times greater than current estimates for the annual cost of providing them transition-related care. "President Trump said that he wants to fire honorably serving transgender troops in order to save money, but that begs the question,...
  • The Media will use Charlottesville to justify BLM and the antifa Fascists (truncated)

    The Democratic Party and its media fifth column are using Charlottesville to legitimize Black Lives Matters and the "AntiFa," and suppress any criticism of these dangerous revolutionaries. If they succeed – and they well could – criticism of these monsters will be denounced as support for fascism.        I said it before, but it bears repeating, the White Nationalists/Supremacists/Neo-Nazis are evil – just as ugly, crazy and violent as the BLM/AntiFa.        But here's the difference: There is no White Supremacist threat to America. Their numbers are insignificant. They have no popular support and no resources. At what was called...
  • Even lefty Seymour Hersh agrees that the Russian fable begin in the mind of Obama’s CIA director.

    One wouldn’t expect Seymour Hersh, a lefty journalist par excellance, to pop the Trump-Russia propaganda balloon Obama’s CIA director John Brennan released last year. But he has. Hersh has been quoted as saying that the collusion claim is a product of “disinformation” — “a Brennan operation,” as he puts it. Hersh says that Trump is not the villain but the victim in this story, and that the press has served as a shameful stenographer for Brennan to smear Trump. It has shown no skepticism toward any of his claims or the supposedly nonpartisan reports his cronies and political hacks assembled...
  • Trump -- once again -- fails to condemn the alt-right, white supremacists

    Bridgewater, New Jersey (CNN)President Donald Trump, a man known for his bluntness, was anything but on Saturday, failing to name the white supremacists or alt-right groups at the center of violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    Did you know when you search the internet, you're not actually searching the whole internet? Google is the largest search service in the world. But even with trillions of websites indexed, Google’s search only covers about four percent of the net. So what exactly is the 96 percent of the internet that’s ungoogleable? The "mysterious" Deep Web, as tech expert Shelly Palmer facetiously called it in an interview with Circa, is the internet that isn’t indexable by search engines. "It's mostly private information that actually should be private and is set up to be that way," Palmer said. This is...
  • California Crops Rot as Immigration Crackdown Creates Farmworker Shortage

    08/10/2017 4:25:13 PM PDT · by SMGFan · 97 replies
    Vegetable prices may be going up soon, as a shortage of migrant workers is resulting in lost crops in California. Farmers say they're having trouble hiring enough people to work during harvest season, causing some crops to rot before they can be picked. Already, the situation has triggered losses of more than $13 million in two California counties alone, according to NBC News. The ongoing battle about U.S. immigration policies is blamed for the shortage. The vast majority of California's farm workers are foreign born, with many coming from Mexico. However, the PEW Research Center reports more Mexicans are leaving...

    Project Description Since 2012, we have been investigating the use of algorithms, automation and computational propaganda in public life. Political bots are manipulating public opinion over major social networking applications. This project enables a new team of social and information scientists to investigate the impact of automated scripts, commonly called bots, on social media. We study both the bot scripts and the people making such bots, and then work with computer scientists to improve the way we catch and stop such bots. Experience suggests that political bots are most likely to appear during an international crisis, and are usually designed...
  • Matt Drudge is firing warning shots at Trump, and that should worry the president

    Matt Drudge has been in the White House an awful lot these days -- "all the time," as one senior administration official puts it. He's met with President Donald Trump, spent time with Ivanka Trump, and doled out advice to Jared Kushner. That he'd have influence in the Trump White House should not be all that surprising. The internet news tycoon, who founded and edits the Drudge Report, the narrative-setting conservative news website, has been one of Trump's most ardent supporters since Trump announced his candidacy. He boosted him through the contentious Republican primaries, helped him defeat Democratic presidential candidate...

    Senators Tom Cotton and Ben Sasse have already been to Iowa this year, Gov. John Kasich is eyeing a return visit to New Hampshire, and Mike Pence’s schedule is so full of political events that Republicans joke that he is acting more like a second-term vice president hoping to clear the field than a No. 2 sworn in a little over six months ago. President Trump’s first term is ostensibly just warming up, but luminaries in his own party have begun what amounts to a shadow campaign for 2020 — as if the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue weren’t...

    When DCs’ Legends of Tomorrow returns for a third season on The CW later this year, a new superhero will enter the fold in the form of a Muslim computer hacker from the future: Zari Adrianna Tomaz, who will be played by Tala Ashe.... Legends executive producer Marc Guggenheim spoke about the casting and referenced the 2016 Presidential election, Donald Trump’s presidency and the policies that ultimately established restrictions on travel to the United States from six predominantly Muslim countries. “You might have heard there was this election,” Guggenheim explained. “Not to get political, but something that we all gravitated...

    A New York City couple jumped to their deaths from the 9th-floor window of a 17-story office building because they couldn't afford health care, according to their suicide notes. The Daily Mail reports that eyewitness Perry Kim, 49, was outside the Murray Hill building at around 5:30 a.m. on Friday morning when he heard screaming and saw two people falling from the sky. The bodies of 53-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman were found shortly thereafter on 33rd Street between Park and Madison avenues, according to the New York Post. Heartbreaking suicide notes were discovered in the pockets of both...

    The Hill ^ | 07/28/2017 | John Bowden
    Defense Secretary James Mattis was caught off guard by President Trump's announcement that he was banning transgender people from serving in the military, according to a New York Times report. Mattis, who was on vacation at the time of Trump's decision, only had one day's worth of notice before Trump tweeted his announcement of the policy, the paper reported. The report described him as "appalled." Sources close to the Defense secretary told the Times that Mattis was infuriated by the tweets, and saw them as an insult to transgender Americans currently serving in the military. On Wednesday morning, Trump wrote...

    IWB ^ | Pamela Williams
    H.R. 4310 passed into law when it was signed by the President Obama on Jan 2, 2013. There is an ongoing controversy surrounding the Bill. I want to start this report with a video: Congressman Dennis Kucinich opposes H.R. 4310 – National Defense Authorization Act for 2013. However, Kucinich does not oppose it for the reason that most people are against it. Many people feel it legalized the use of propaganda on American audiences. It is being said it allowed the material produced by the State Department and the Pentagon to strike the ban that had been in place on...

    Secretary of State Rex Tillerson may be considering resigning from his job as frustrations with the Trump administration may have him nearing the end of his rope. People "familiar with Tillerson conversations with friends outside Washington" told CNN the mood in Foggy Bottom's Mahogany Row has grown increasingly dark in recent days, particularly since President Donald Trump gave an interview to The New York Times in which he publicly rebuked Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Tillerson and others are said to also be troubled by the turmoil at the White House, resulting in last week's shake up of Trump's legal team,...

    Donald Trump, Jr. appears to be the latest figure in President Donald Trump’s inner circle to be caught in the giant web of the Great Kremlin Conspiracy. Trump the younger said he was promised dirt on Hillary Clinton, but that all he got in his June 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer was an earful about dropping the Magnitsky Act, which sanctions Russian officials involved in the death of a Russian lawyer who was killed in detention. If the Trump, Jr. meeting is just another chapter in the Beltway telenovela about Trump selling out America to the Russians through an...

Ambassador Sergey Kislyak’s accounts of two conversations with Sessions — then a top foreign policy adviser to Republican candidate Donald Trump — were intercepted by U.S. spy agencies, which monitor the communications of senior Russian officials both in the United States and in Russia. Sessions initially failed to disclose his contacts with Kislyak and then said...
