  • Is "Statistics Shadowbanning" the Latest Big-Tech Salvo Against Conservatives?

    So that's Big Tech, advancing little minds and big lies--and inviting big destruction With perhaps the most significant midterm election in decades nigh, big tech’s censorship of conservatives has kicked into high gear. And while Facebook’s recent purge of right-leaning pages is obvious and has made news, perhaps just as destructive is the stealth censorship. A good example may be the report of WordPress’ “statistics shadowbanning” of Whatfinger News. Whatfinger is an increasingly popular news aggregator that is run by military veterans; it’s like a non-establishment version of Drudge, only more comprehensive, more conservative, and more interesting.

    Don't talk about the Red-Wave, be part of it to save America, to save your freedom, to save your families, to save your future THIS will ask the undeniable question: Are you aware of just how close we are to losing our Constitutional Republic? President Trump recently said that many people have told him that they will not be voting in the midterms because he was not on the ballot. So why vote? What part about THIS do these people not understand? Hopefully, you are not one of them, because nothing could be further from the truth. PDJT and his...

    It’s about trying to keep President Donald Trump from gaining any more ground in Midterm Elections After thousands of Hondurans arrive at the Southern Border of the USA, plant the Honduran flag on American soil on Midterm Election Day, what next? The supposed goal of the Made-To-Order-Migrant-Invasion-Of-America is to make President Donald Trump look bad by whatever means he will employ to stop them in time for Election.

Dennis Prager outlines the values that have allowed the American people to flourish and, unlike immigrants almost everywhere else, transformed those who arrived from across the globe into full Americans—regardless of where they were born.
  • Proposed ‘Students’ BILL OF RIGHTS’ Leans Heavy On Gun Control Measures

    guns.com ^ | Oct. 22, 2018 | Chris Eger
    A planned Student Gun Violence Summit held in Washington, D.C. over the weekend has generated a proposal geared towards extensive gun control ideas. The summit was designed to merge existing plans to reduce gun violence and merge them into a single “Students’ Bill of Rights,” after a weekend conference. The group, a 501(c)(4) tax-exempt social welfare organization, was formed by Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School teacher Melissa Falkowski, along with Jami Amo, a survivor of the Columbine shooting; and Abbey Clements, a teacher from Sandy Hook Elementary School. The summit was sponsored with the assistance of several national gun control...

    The Daily Chrenk ^ | Arthur Chrenkoff
    In a world that the identity politics has wrought, lived experience is a trump (apologies for the use of a triggering word) card: your viewpoint or opinion on an issue is automatically deemed invalid or at least less valid and valuable if you’re not a member of a group whose plight is being discussed. Men can’t really know what it’s like to be women, white people can’t really know what it’s like to be people of colour, the straight ones can’t really know what it’s like to have other sexual orientations. Your identity is your argument; “You wouldn’t know what...

    American Mind ^ | 22 Oct 2018 | Angelo Codevilla
    In 2010, Angelo Codevilla reintroduced the notion of "the ruling class" back into American popular discourse. In 2017, he described contemporary American politics as a "cold civil war." Now he applies the "logic of revolution" to our current political scene. The primary objective of any people who find themselves in the throes of a revolution is to find ways of diverting its logic from its worst conclusions. Prior to the 2016 election I explained (After The Republic) how America had already “stepped over the threshold of a revolution,” that it was “difficult to imagine how we might step back, and...

    An Alternative for Germany (AfD) politician got himself in hot water over photos of his “pilgrimage” to Hitler-related sites. The politician was reportedly pictured with a candle in front of Hitler’s birthplace in the Austrian town of Brannau am Inn. He was also pictured near the Berchtesgaden Alpine retreat of the Fuhrer, as well as posing near swastikas and SS rune-bearing banners. While the scandalous pictures have not been released, the AfD acknowledged their existence. “The person concerned was clearly reminded by the state board that such incidents are unacceptable and incompatible with AfD membership,” Torben Braga, a party spokesman,...

    President Donald Trump's administration is considering a policy that would eliminate transgender recognition by requiring individuals to be defined as male or female based on their genitalia at birth, according to a government memo obtained by the New York Times. The report has caused an uproar on social media Sunday (Oct. 21). The Department of Health and Human Services is aiming to establish a uniform definition of gender, determined “on a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable," the report says. “Sex means a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable...

    Since Donald Trump won the presidency, he has presided over both one the most tumultuous political times in recent memory, as well as the best economy the country has seen since well before the financial crisis. Consumer and small business confidence is up — but so are both the national debt and budget deficit. The chart below, using mostly data compiled by Goldman Sachs, quantifies just how much things changed from the days just before the election in November 2016 through September 2018. Of course, the stock market has weakened in October, which has been its historically most volatile month....
