    On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” House Consumer Protection and Commerce Subcommittee Chairwoman Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) discussed the subcommittee’s hearing with the CEOs of Facebook, Google, and Twitter and said that the hearing’s purpose was to send the message to tech companies “That we’re going to regulate. We’re going to legislate.” And that there “have to be some limitations, not just on advertising
  • US congressman files bill to make ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing’ new national hymn

    Congressman Clyburn says if passed, the national hymn would have a special place alongside the existing US anthem, ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’. United States congressman James Clyburn has filed a bill to make ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing’ the country’s new national hymn in a move the Democrat says, “would be an act of bringing the country together”. ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing’, popularly known as the Black national anthem, has had a place of honour in the Black musical canon for more than a century. Clyburn, the House majority whip, put forward the proposal on 13 January, calling for the...

    Good old Glenn, one of the few standing classic liberals, pointing out the dangers of the New Left: For years, I heard it's invalid to object to political censorship by FB & Twitter because, if you don't like it, you can just create a competing social media platform. Parler tried. And in 24 hours, Google, Apple & Amazon united to destroy it. That's what monopoly power means. — Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) January 10, 2021And giving everyone on both sides reason to at least give pause to think about what they’re up to: The new corporate authoritarian liberal-left monoculture is going...

    A yoga studio in Washington state is staying open amid state shutdown orders after its founder claimed it has a religious exemption. In a Tuesday appearance on "Fox & Friends First," Hauteyoga founder Leah Zaccaria said she believes yoga should not be considered a physical fitness center or gym. Zaccaria told the show she has not officially "proclaimed myself a church or a religious organization" in the eyes of the law, but believes the exemption applies to yoga because it is a "spiritual practice" that includes "mind, body, and spirit." "It is more than a fitness practice," she said on...

    Twitter sparked major controversy Friday with its decision to ban President Trump from its platform. Following Trump's brief suspension after the violence that took place on Capitol Hill Wednesday, Twitter announced on Friday evening that the president will no longer be able to tweet. "After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence," the company wrote in a blog post.

    A flight attendants' union has called for members of the pro-Trump mob which stormed the Capitol on Wednesday to be banned from flights out of Washington, DC, amid concerns about their violent behaviour. Sara Nelson, international president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, condemned the "mob mentality behavior" protestors had demonstrated aboard flights into Washington on Wednesday ahead of the protests, and said the violence pro-Trump supporters had demonstrated at the Capitol meant they should be prevented from boarding flights home.

    The Coming Assault on Religious FreedomModern-day Thomas Beckets are needed to stop it.Joe Biden’s view of religious freedom is exceedingly narrow. Where religious freedom conflicts with the goals of liberalism, he supports suppressing it. He has promised Planned Parenthood that he will resume the Obama-era harassment of the Little Sisters of the Poor and other religious groups if they don’t conform to his mandates. During the campaign, he opposed “broad exemptions” for those who resist his view of LGBTQ rights.One of Biden’s transition officials is Chai Feldblum, who has spoken openly of her opposition to religious freedom. She has written,...

    Campus Reform ^ | January 1, 2021 | Benjamin Zeisloft
    Over the years, Campus Reform has reported on hundreds of instances of anti-Christian sentiment at American universities. Here are five of the worst instances from this year. 1. Harvard University. Harvard Law professor Elizabeth Bartholet called for a ban on homeschooling, decrying “conservative Christians” in the process. In a Harvard Gazette interview entitled “A warning on homeschooling,” Bartholet attributed rising interest in homeschooling to the “growth in the conservative evangelical movement,” stating that “conservative Christians” use the practice to “escape from the secular education in public schools,” after a failed effort “to have their children exempted from exposure to alternative...

    Christmas in California has effectively been cancelled by Emperor Gavin Newsom. And now it looks like here in L.A. we're going to be locked in our basements by the local yahoos in charge until February. But the continuing destruction of normal social and economic life in California in the name of fighting the COVID-19 pandemic is old news. Instead, let's talk about the yahoos in Washington who are continuing to screw up the whole country. The federal yahoos, it's no surprise, are the slippery politicians in Congress. Mostly Democrats but also some Republicans, for a decade they haven't had the...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. December 15, 2020 – Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI) today urged immediate action from Facebook to eradicate anti-Muslim bigotry from the platform and demanded Mark Zuckerberg implement six measures to combat bigoted content. In a letter signed by 29 colleagues, Dingell cited instances of anti-Muslim content on Facebook and recent reports showing the role of the platform in inciting violence against the Muslim community. “Facebook cannot celebrate the success of its platform, while ignoring its role in elevating the dangerous, deadly content targeting Muslim people,” said Congresswoman Dingell. “In Christchurch, New Zealand, a terrorist attack that stole the lives...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, signed legislation on Tuesday prohibiting the sale of Confederate flags on public property, including at state and local fairs. Cuomo was well aware that such legislation is likely to fail a First Amendment test, but this did not deter him. "This country faces a pervasive, growing attitude of intolerance and hate—what I have referred to in the body politic as an American cancer," he wrote. "By limiting the display and sale of the confederate flag, Nazi swastika and other symbols of hatred from being displayed or sold on state property, including the state...

Twitter on Saturday briefly took new action to stem the spread of President Donald Trump's tweets about his loss in the 2020 election. Replies and likes were disabled on several of Trump's tweets Saturday morning before Twitter reversed course hours later, telling Business Insider the change was made "inadvertently." Throughout 2020, Twitter has attempted to curb misinformation on the platform, though the company has long said it allows the president's account and posts to remain on the platform because they are of...

    President-Elect Joe Biden’s pick for secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, concerns religious conservatives fighting to protect their First Amendment free speech and religious liberty rights. They are wary of Becerra because he defended the anti-free speech California law (AB 775), struck down by the Supreme Court, that forced pro-life care centers to promote state-sponsored abortions. They are also alarmed over comments he made before the state Assembly three years ago when he said religious liberty is only for “individuals” not “institutions.” California Family Council President Jonathan Keller had this to say about the...

    ...Northwestern University received more than $340 million from the country of Qatar from 2012 to 2019 as it operated a campus in the Middle Eastern country and continued a years-long collaboration with Al Jazeera, a media outlet owned by the Qatari government. That’s according to a 2019 Clarion Project report, which found that Al Jazeera and Northwestern University formed a relationship in 2008 when the Qatar Foundation, which the Clarion Project alleges of being linked to terrorism, funded a Northwestern campus in Qatar. Northwestern, one of the top journalism schools in the U.S., partnered with Al Jazeera in an agreement...

    A pastor of a Georgia megachurch who also is running for U.S. Senate said last week he believes legalized abortion is “consistent with” Christianity and he would “fight” to ensure it remains legal. Raphael Warnock, senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, and a Democratic candidate trying to unseat Republican U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler in November’s election, made the comments to WGAU’s Tim Bryant. Bryant asked Warnock how the pro-choice views of the Democrat Party “square with” his “role as a minister, a leader of a church, a man of God.” “I believe that healthcare is a human right,”...

    ER doctor and Boston state Rep. Jon Santiago said a second surge of coronavirus cases is coming, laying out a five-point strategy to stop it — including fines of up to $1,000 for people who refuse to quarantine and $100 for not wearing a mask. “We’re very much at risk of having a second surge here in Massachusetts and I think many medical experts — including myself — would agree that it’s not a matter of if, but when we will get that second surge. Now the question is how big it will that be,” Santiago told the Herald.
