  • Alec Baldwin tweets about noose for Trump over MLK weekend, Twitter shrugs

    Twitter is apparently very selective about its disapproval of violence, indicating that some violence is better than other violence. If the right person threatens violence against the right person, it is safe on Twitter's platform. The tweeted reaction from Baldwin's followers was mixed. Some mocked or criticized him, while others chuckled, offering additional, grimmer enhancements to his dream.Busy plotting U.S. Constitution First Amendment suppression on a mass scale internationally, Twitter executives apparently were quite pleased that a person of Baldwin's character implemented their vision so readily. The 75 million deplorables who voted for President Donald J. Trump have still yet...

    The astounding Susan Rosenberg case, and the logic of the left by Jon Rappoport Speaking of Capitol break-ins, here’s a story to remember. The facts and the implications are quite remarkable. Extending to today. It’s the Susan Rosenberg case. Remember that name— And as you read, imagine what would be happening if this Senate bombing event occurred now, and the FBI claimed the instigator was a Trump supporter. In 1978, a small group of young women broke off from male-centered revolutionary organizations and formed their own; a hard-Left circle they called M19. They were dedicated to ending racism, sexism, and...

    Famed Boston Red Sox pitcher-turned-conservative commentator Curt Schilling said Tuesday that American International Group (AIG) had cancelled his insurance plan due to his "social media profile." "We will be just fine, but wanted to let Americans know that @AIGinsurance canceled our insurance due to my 'Social Media profile,'" Schilling said on Twitter. Schilling shared a screenshot purportedly showing an AIG employee telling him that while they appreciate that he's been a "long time AIG client since 2004" "it was a management decision that was made collectively between underwriting and marketing teams that could not be overturned."

    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.

    Eddie Emerson worked his fly fishing pole back and forth, tossing his line into a pond in West Texas, searching for stocked trout and an answer to questions on how he felt about the storming of the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters. A backer of President Donald Trump, Emerson said he disliked the violence he saw on TV on Wednesday: people overturning barricades, clashing with police and swarming the building in Washington that houses the Senate and House of Representatives. Emerson expressed frustration with what he called the hypocrisy of those who condemned the riots but turned a blind eye...
  • Ex-'Jeopardy!' Champ: Ashli Babbitt's 'Nazi A**' 'Feeding the Worms' Is a 'Good Thing

    A former "Jeopardy!" champion and prominent Twitter leftist stated that the death of a pro-Trump protester and military veteran on Wednesday was "one of the few good things that happened as a result of the Capitol 'protest'" and that people should "feel less bad than you do about putting down a rabid animal." Ashli Babbitt, a 14-year veteran of the Air Force, was apparently shot by Capitol Police amid protesters breaking into the Capitol building, reported The New York Post. "Ashley [sic] Babbitt feeding the worms is one of the few good things that happened as a result of the...

    Six years after being arrested for having sex with a minor, a former New Mexico youth volleyball coach has been arrested again. This time, he is accused of raping several young girls. Ryan Kapuscinski, 28, has been charged with 52 felonies including 44 counts of criminal sexual penetration of a minor. He stands accused of having sex with three girls between the ages of 11 and 15. The crimes reportedly happened between 2015 and 2018. Kapuscinski was previously arrested in 2014 for having sex with a minor. He pleaded no contest and was released on probation with a conditional discharge.

    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...

    ODESSA, Texas (KOSA) - Innovex Downhole Solutions says it was recently denied an order of jackets by The North Face, a popular outdoor recreation company, because Innovex is an oil and gas business. “I was surprised but not surprised, if that makes sense,” said Innovex CEO Adam Anderson. Innovex is based in Houston and has nearly 100 workers in the Permian Basin. Each year, the company gets a Christmas gift for its employees. This year, it was supposed to be a North Face jacket with an Innovex logo, a company Innovex has ordered gear from in the past. The company...

    Everyone is the hero in their own story, so it makes sense that Democrats truly believe they’re doing good when they do evil. It’s easier to sleep at night when you convince yourself the depraved and corrupt things you do are in the name of something good or just. But no matter how hard they lie to themselves, their lies never become true. Democrats, particularly those with press credentials, love to talk about how they “speak truth to power.” It’s a meaningless phrase in general, but it’s even more meaningless when it exits their oral cavities. Leftists wouldn’t know truth...

    The headlines grow more disgusting -- and, frankly, more unbelievable -- with each passing day. Jeffrey Toobin, a columnist for The New Yorker, was suspended earlier this week (and placed on leave from his gig as chief legal analyst for CNN) after he was allegedly observed masturbating during a Zoom call with some of his colleagues from the magazine and from WYNC radio. Unsurprisingly, Toobin has become an object of derision and the butt of countless jokes. (Other parts of his unseemly backstory are getting more publicity. This is not, as they say, his first rodeo.) Not everyone has piled...

    Twitter faced unrelenting backlash after blocking the spread of a New York Post bombshell that was highly critical of Hunter Biden on Wednesday, as critics pointed out the platform gave no such treatment to stories from CNN, The New York Times and other media with highly questionable sourcing. CEO Jack Dorsey even admitted his company was wrong to intervene on the Hunter Biden story without sufficiently explaining why. Dorsey called his company’s actions “unacceptable” after Twitter initially claimed it took action against the article due to the company’s “Hacked Materials Policy.” Twitter had blocked the article from being shared on...

    On Thursday, October 15, 2020 at 1:30 pm ET, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) will convene a virtual unclassified hearing entitled, “Misinformation, Conspiracy Theories, and ‘Infodemics’: Stopping the Spread Online.” Conspiracy theories and misinformation narratives that prey on individuals’ fears and uncertainties continue to mar the online landscape. Against the backdrop of a global pandemic, an economy in turmoil, and a tumultuous presidential campaign, there is ample terrain for malicious actors at home or malign foreign operatives and governments abroad to exploit such tensions by stoking chaos and dangerous, even life-threatening, untruths. Recent trends in the spread...

    Sympathetic Washington Post writer Matt Viser reports Joe Biden is pushing his religion in "a seven-figure ad buy that will air on religious TV stations and Christian radio networks in nine battleground states." In one ad, "Morning," the narrator cites Biden's faith as what got him through "dark times," when he lost his wife and daughter in a car crash in 1972 and his son Beau Biden to cancer in 2015. Faith in God should get us through hard times. But you don't have to belong to a church to have faith. Maybe I watch too many Biden presentations, but...

    It's getting scary out there, people. Everywhere you turn, Trump haters are venting their wrath against Trump supporters, as if supporting President Trump is an unforgivable sin. They're projecting and gaslighting -- blaming Trump and his supporters for everything they're doing. It's madness, but at long last, they might have awakened the sleeping giant they're trying to hunt down and destroy. MSNBC's Joy Reid tweeted, "Genuine question: what will be the relationship between the majority of Americans, and Trumpists after this long, national nightmare ends -- and it will eventually end -- do people anticipate simply letting bygones (be) bygones...

    Gyms within government buildings in San Francisco have been open for months, despite privately owned establishments being ordered to close due to the coronavirus. “It’s shocking, it’s infuriating,” Daniele Rabkin, of Crossfit Golden Gate, told a local NBC station. “Even though they’re getting exposed, there are no repercussions, no ramifications? It’s shocking.” The gyms that have been open for government employees include those for police officers, judges, lawyers, bailiffs, and paralegals, according to the report. One such gym, the Hall of Justice gym, has been open since July 1. “It just demonstrates that there seems to be some kind of...
