    The Boston Globe is calling on newspapers across the country to publish editorials taking a stand against President Trump’s repeated attacks on the media. The Associated Press reported Friday that the Globe is calling for the editorial boards of other newspapers to publish editorials on Aug. 16 denouncing the Trump administration's "dirty war against the free press." Marjorie Pritchard, the deputy managing editor of the Globe who oversees the paper’s editorial page, told the AP that dozens of newspapers have already signed on to join the coordinated effort, including larger metropolitan daily newspapers and smaller publications. The move comes days...
  • If We Silence Hate Speech, Will We Silence Resistance?

    The Failing New York Times ^ | 8/9/2018 | Erik Nielson
    “Hate” is a dangerously elastic label. And it has long been used to demonize unpopular expression, particularly among people of color. Apple, Facebook, YouTube, Spotify and most other major internet distributors took a bold step this week when they all but banned content from Infowars, a website run by the right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. The tech companies cited their policies against hate speech for their decision, rather than the trafficking in fake news by Infowars. It’s tempting to applaud this move, but we should be wary. While Mr. Jones’s rhetoric is certainly repugnant, mounting pressure from the political left...
  • Michael Moore’s ‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ Trailer Aims To Expose Trump’s ‘Evil Genius’

    “Fahrenheit 9/11,” Michael Moore’s polemic about George W. Bush and the War on Terror, remains the highest-grossing documentary of all time. If the national mood was splintered when that movie opened in 2004, it’s nothing compared to what it is now, almost two years into Donald Trump’s presidency. So, naturally, Moore is channeling his most famous film to explore that exact subject: “Fahrenheit 11/9” seeks to “bring Trump down” before November’s midterm elections. HuffPost has an exclusive look at the first trailer for “Fahrenheit 11/9,” a reference to the day Trump was declared the winner of the 2016 election. It...

    Their Obama-led ‘resistance’ is a promise that will never come to pass Social media giants, in the tank with the Progressive-Left, have made it a closed shop for Conservative voices on the Internet. But all is not lost and because of certain circumstances in play, never will be. In their signature high-handed arrogance, not to mention depraved madness, they fail to realize that human memory of the most indelible kind, will go on to makes their latest move unsustainable.

    American Thinker ^ | 08/04/2018 | Thomas Lifson
    Senator Cory Booker, who is one of the Democrats contending for his party's 2020 nomination for president, is pleading political negligence, claiming that he didn't bother to read a sign that he allowed himself to be photographed holding.  Booker, who has raised considerable money from pro-Israel Jewish groups, apparently got carried away with intersectional enthusiasm at the Netroots Nation confab and was unable to get a clue from the t-shirt on the woman standing next to him that proclaimed Palestine's virtue in the realm of "feminist/queer refugee racial justice" that he might be endorsing a radical point of view. The...

Revolution won’t break out in Oregon because ‘Resistance’ Leader Barack Hussein Obama is not ready to step out of the closet—yet.

    Dr. Lourdes Ashley Hunter was still reeling from President Trump’s announcement banning military service by transgender people when she received an email asking if she would help organize a protest against the policy. For Hunter, who identifies as transgender, the ban felt personal, so she was happy to help set up a protest in Washington, D.C. The local organizer offered to connect Hunter, executive director of the Trans Women of Color Collective, with a woman named Mary Smith from the activist group “ReSister.” For the next two days, Mary Smith worked with Hunter on Facebook Messenger to organize the protest....

    At least three of the events co-organized on Facebook by a group the company now thinks was part of a coordinated disinformation network appear to have been held, and to have been attended by hundreds of people. The events, in New York City and Springfield, Mo., were all co-hosted on Facebook by a group called the Resisters. All three events were critical of President Trump. Archived versions of the event pages showed that 674 people responded on Facebook to say that they would attend the “We Stand with DREAMers! Support DACA!” event in New York on Sept. 9 last year....

    This time they’ve surely got him. Pack your bags, Mr. President. The game is up. Because this week we learned that . . . that . . . well, there’s this tape, see, recorded by Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen in September of 2016, during which the then-presidential candidate discussed setting up a company for the purpose of paying off alleged former paramour Karen McDougal to make her go away. Did Trump and Cohen actually pay her off? No, but . . . but . . . c’mon, it would have been a campaign-finance violation! If it had happened. Or it was sort of a campaign-finance violation once...

    After the U.S. Supreme Court confirmed his razor-thin defeat in the 2000 presidential election, former Vice President Al Gore could have gone to the mat trying to delegitimize the presidency of George W. Bush. Much to his credit, he didn’t. Democrat Gore had won the popular vote, after all, and the turmoil created by the historic 36-day recount in Florida was all he needed to divide the country for selfish and ideological reasons. But instead of orchestrating a radical leftist resistance, Gore chose country over power. As difficult as it must have been, Gore was big enough to let it...

    The third annual OZY Fest just ended. The event was held from July 21-22 in Central Park, it featured an appalling parade of the blessed and brightest … and is the best possible argument for piranha-fication of America’s waterways. Or for meteors to be less discriminating in where they strike. In reality, OZY Fest is another lukewarm neoliberal think-festival. It featured luminaries of the modern brainflesh like Steven Pinker, Common, and the once-was-future President of these United States, Madam Secretary Hillary Clinton. Oh, and these people: (TWEET-AT-LINK) Some of you are making O-faces right now, like an obscenely prudish butler...

    A former adviser to Hillary Clinton brought a hip hop band and dancers to the White House for the fifth night of a multi-day protest on Friday. Adam Parkhomenko has been organizing the “Occupy Lafayette Park” protests since President Trump’s controversial summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday. Footage captured from the Friday protest shows protesters standing along the White House fence holding signs that read "Treason" as the hip hop band performs. For the first night of protests, hundreds of people came to “welcome” Trump back from Helsinki, Finland, on Monday night and have been returning to the...

    I believe it was only yesterday when Ed Morrissey described New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as “the gift that keeps on giving.” Well, the giving continues today and it’s only getting better. (Editor’s note: The phrase “better” may only apply if you are a conservative.) She gave an interview to Democracy Now! this week where she set forth some of her agenda for her swelling army of socialist supporters on the Democratic left flank. Rather than focusing on new progressive policy initiatives or getting out the vote, Ocasio-Cortez called on the unwashed masses to take to the streets in...

    The Catholic Resistance must keep Fighting and Praying for the Restoration of the Church There is no doubt that Pope Francis and his inner circle are behind the greatest crisis in the history of the Church. We at the Catholic Monitor and the Band of Bloggers have documented this catastrophe. The Catholic Resistance is fighting for the restoration of the Church by exposing the falsehoods and evil that have entered the Church. We must keep doing this, but we will fail if we don't pray at Mass and outside Mass for the restoration. Jesus Christ will restore the Church unless...

    The “Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018,” legislation introduced in the House, carries a potential 15-year prison sentence for those caught engaging in behaviors typically associated with the “antifa” movement of anti-fascist activists. Under the act, anyone “wearing a mask” or in disguise who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person … in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege” is subject to a fine or up to 15 years in prison. The bill was introduced in the House last month but received renewed attention on Tuesday after alt-right personality Mike Cernovich encouraged his followers to call their...
