    A traditional Catholic family was allegedly “dragged out of their home at gunpoint, handcuffed and locked in a van” earlier this year after the FBI “goaded” their 15-year-old son to post “offensive memes” online. The teen, a volunteer firefighter and altar boy, was then hospitalized on mental health pretenses, according to his father, Jeremiah Rufini.

    If there's any doubt that the creatures currently persecuting President Trump through the courts are less after him than they are us, prosecutor Jack Smith provides the assurances. Here's his latest stunt: The Department of 'Justice' demanded that Twitter (X) hand over a list of users who engaged with Donald Trump's posts in relation to Jack Smith's J6 investigation.It's as outrageous a demand as any ever seen in an outrageous case, with horrible implications for Constitutional protections and freedom itself in the U.S. If this creep gets what he wants, that means everyone who ever clicked "like" on a tweet...

    The CIA has sent out an internal email cautioning employees against posting political messages on social media after a senior officer posted a pro-Palestinian image on Facebook. The email to staff members was “simply a reminder of existing policy,” a U.S. official told NBC News. The warning was issued after the agency’s associate deputy director for analysis posted an image depicting a man waving a Palestinian flag that is sometimes used in commentary critical of Israel.

    "The biggest antisemitic movement since the Nazis": Jewish celebrities urge TikTok to address antisemitism as hateful content on the rise since 7 October. A group of Jewish celebrities and influencers have met with execs of the video app TikTok to voice their concerns. More than 30 people joined the 90-minute video call, including actors Sacha Baron Cohen, Debra Messing and Amy Schumer, at the invitation of TikTok. The group is alarmed by an apparent surge of antisemitic content and misinformation on app, following the 7 October Hamas attack. The meeting was first reported by the New York Times. “What is...
  • Five Reasons Congress Should Strip Funding from Leftist Internet Traffic Cop NewsGuard

    NewsBusters ^ | 11/21/2023 | Joseph Vazquez
    Leftist internet traffic cop NewsGuard is the farthest thing from being the unbiased media referee it purports to be. It is a government-funded operation designed to attack right-leaning media by going after their advertiser funding. There are at least five core reasons why Congress should strip funding from NewsGuard in the latest National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) since it received a $750,000 taxpayer-funded grant from the Department of Defense. The state funding of a leftist, so-called journalism gatekeeper that deceptively bills itself as “apolitical” is case in point. Such efforts by the government to censor media it does not approve...
  • Is Liking Other Women’s Instagram Photos a Form of Cheating?

    New York Post ^ | Nov. 19, 2023 | Isiah McKimmie
    QUESTION: I’ve been with my boyfriend for two years and can imagine us getting married and having a family together. The only issue is that he often likes pictures of other women on Instagram and chats with them. It makes me feel like I’m not enough. I’ve challenged him and he says it’s not cheating and is just a bit of fun. Should I just accept his behavior as part of our relationship? ANSWER: Whether or not this is considered ‘cheating’ is beside the point here. Your boyfriend is doing something that makes you uncomfortable and rather than listen to...

    According to a new Pew report, a growing number of U.S. adults admit to regularly getting their news on TikTok. “This,” notes the report, “is in contrast with many other social media sites, where news consumption has either declined or stayed about the same in recent years.”This should concern all readers who care about the United States. As this piece clearly demonstrates, TikTok is an incredibly dangerous app that is most likely being weaponized by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). More specifically, it's being used by the CCP to further divide a country that is already dangerously divided.The Pew report...
  • A Satanist Pedophile Gang Is Torturing Kids. The FBI Didn’t Seem To Care Unless It Could Blame White Supremacy.

    The Daily Wire ^ | November 16, 2023 | Luke Rosiak
    A Satan-worshipping cult of pedophiles is blackmailing girls into cutting themselves — but the FBI didn’t seem interested in that so much as the fact that one of its members once used the n-word, a Daily Wire investigation found. For years, the group known both as 764 and Harm Nation has tortured what is believed to be hundreds or thousands of girls. But the FBI didn’t put its cybercrimes or violence-against-children investigators on it. Instead, its interest appears to have piqued mainly by the fact that the group — most of whose victims are white teens — was once racist...

    The FCC voted today on a plan that gives the Federal government full control over the Internet. The plan passed by a 3-2 margin. A press release posted immediately after the meeting stated, in part, “Under the new rules, the Commission can investigate possible instances of discrimination of broadband access, work with companies to solve problems, facilitate mediation, and, when necessary, penalize companies for violating the rules. The FCC will review consumer complaints of digital discrimination of access through an improved consumer complaint portal and staff will meet monthly to assess trends in complaint patterns. Finally, the Commission adopted model...

    Republican presidential candidate and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis rubbed salt on the wound Wednesday by trolling his opponent, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, over her heavily scrutinized vow to require all social media users be verified. DeSantis' campaign announced new merchandise mocking Haley's comments, including a t-shirt with the phrase, "Always Watching," and a quote from Haley saying that "every person on social media should be verified by their name." Another item is a dystopian-themed "Official Internet Identification Card"
  • Reflecting on the Internet Worm at 35

    Thirty-five years ago today (November 2nd), the Internet Worm program was set loose to propagate on the Internet. Noting that now to the computing public (and cybersecurity professionals, specifically) often generates an "Oh, really?" response akin to stating that November 2nd is the anniversary of the inaugural broadcast of the first BBC TV channel (1936), and the launch of Sputnik 2 with Laika aboard (1957). That is, to many, it is ho-hum, ancient history. Perhaps that is to be expected after 35 years -- approximately the length of a human generation. (As an aside, I have been teaching at Purdue...

    Haley said that when she takes "office, the first thing we have to do ... social media companies, they have to show America their algorithms. Let us see why they're pushing what they're pushing. The second thing is every person on social media should be verified by their name," she said, describing the issue as a "national security threat." "Haley's proposal to ban anonymous speech online — similar to what China recently did — is dangerous and unconstitutional. It will be dead on arrival in my administration," Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who is also seeking the GOP presidential nod, tweeted...

    And so it begins. In fact, it hardly ever stops – another election cycle in well on its way in the US. But what has emerged these last few years, and what continues to crop up the closer the election day gets, is the role of the most influential social platforms/tech companies.Pressure on them is sometimes public, but mostly not, as the Twitter Files have taught us; and it is with this in mind that various announcements about combating “election disinformation” coming from Big Tech should be viewed.Although, one can never discount the possibility that some – say, Microsoft –...

    The Australian Government has recently introduced in Parliament a new law proposal to ban officially unapproved online content. Digital companies are expected to adopt a code of conduct which will see them censor speech based on broad, vague and far-reaching directives.The Communications Legislation Amendment (Combating Misinformation and Disinformation) Bill 2023 foreshadows the imposition of a legal obligation on digital platforms to police alleged ‘misinformation’ and ‘disinformation’. If that does not work, the law proposal provides for the full empowerment of the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) to directly intervene for the purpose of preventing ‘harm’.Section 2 of the proposed...

    A viral post on X has rocked the foundations of the entire Trump “fraud” case. We’ve seen numerous “game changers” lately in this sham case, but this latest revelation could potentially be the most significant. Investigative journalist Laura Loomer appears to have discovered the social media account of the judge’s wife overseeing the Trump fraud case in New York City. If these claims hold true, the posts may shed light on his bias and radical stance against Trump. Laura shared her findings on X, making a point to tag Trump’s legal team to alert them to what may be going...

    Federal Communications Commission Commissioner Brendan Carr is calling the Biden administration's "digital equity" plan for all internet services and infrastructure an "unlawful power grab." Biden’s plan hands the Administrative State effective control of all Internet services and infrastructure in the country. Never before, in the roughly 40-year history of the public Internet, has the FCC (or any federal agency for that matter) claimed this degree of control over it. Indeed, Biden’s plan calls for the FCC to apply a far-reaching set of government controls that the agency has not applied to any technology in the modern era, including Title II...
