  • I was hacked, Seattle autonomous zone ‘warlord’ says, as old homophobic tweets surface from his account (Raz Simone)

    Raz Simone, the self-appointed ‘warlord’ of the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), blames a hacker for “old” tweets, after users found decade-old homophobic posts – similar to what once happened to MSNBC host Joy Reid. Simone, a rap musician and activist, has risen to prominence as a leading figure in the CHAZ experiment, and his newfound status has brought with it new scrutiny of his record. This week, some right-wing outlets delved deep into his digital footprint and allegedly dug up some unsavory tweets from 2010 in which a homophobic slur was used. The screenshots of the now-deleted tweets have...
  • No, Actor Terry Crews Will Not Apologize for His Tweets

    Source: AP Photo/Richard Drew A few days after football star Drew Brees distanced himself from his sincere remarks about the American flag because critics called him a racist, actor Terry Crews finds himself on the receiving end of the same cancel culturalists (not a Merriam-Webster approved term). This weekend, Crews shared a beautiful sentiment on Twitter: That white and black Americans should actually work together to defeat hatred. "Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy," Crews wrote. "Equality is the truth. Like it or not, we are all in this together." Defeating White supremacy without White people creates...

    WASHINGTON - There were two views Thursday night on Attorney General William Barr's complaints about President Donald Trump's tweets targeting the Justice Department and they couldn't have been more distinct: Supporters of the Trump administration took Barr at face value and praised him. Critics thought he was faking it. "The attorney general says it's getting in the way of doing his job," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told Fox News anchor Bret Baier. "Maybe the president should listen to the attorney general." "Barr doesn't care where it takes him," House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said to Fox's Sean...

    Is there nothing—nothing!—that the liberal media can't spin against President Trump and his administration? Take Attorney General Bill Barr's comments to an ABC correspondent that some of the president's tweets make it impossible for him to do his job. You'd think that dedicated Trump-detester Mika Brzezinski would be thrilled! But no. Mika managed to spin Barr's words in the worst possible way. On today's Morning Joe, Brzezinski declared: "It seems to me that what he’s saying is that these tweets make it harder for Bill Barr to help him be corrupt."Get the rest of the story and view the video...

    Attorney General William Barr told ABC News in an interview aired Thursday that President Trump had never asked him to do anything in a criminal case but advised the president to stop tweeting about the Justice Department, saying it makes it “impossible for me to do my job.” The remarks are a significant and rare public break by the attorney general from the president, following days of controversy surrounding the Justice Department’s decision to lessen a sentence for Trump ally Roger Stone after the president tweeted about his displeasure with the gravity of the original sentence recommendation. “I think it’s...
  • Amid Senate impeachment trial, Trump posts record-breaking number of tweets in one day

    President Trump is all about records. He’s constantly touting things such as the U.S. having the “greatest economy in American history,” how unemployment for certain demographic groups is the “lowest in the history of our country,” and how his reelection campaign is setting fundraising records. But as of 4:45 p.m. on Wednesday -- on a day when the Senate was embroiled in his impeachment trial and the president was attending the World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting in Davos, Switzerland -- Trump broke one of his own records by sending out a whopping 131 tweets and retweets in a single day,...
  • Twitter Says “Glitch” Caused President Trump’s Retweet To Be Deleted

    President Trump on Thursday tweeted out an article that names the alleged anti-Trump CIA whistleblower — Eric Ciaramella. In fact, on Friday night several of President Trump’s tweets went missing — and several of the accounts he tweeted were deleted by Twitter. And Twitter was also caught shaving THOUSANDS of likes off of President Trump’s tweets. Twitter later responded to CNN and admitted to deleting several pro-Trump accounts after President Trump retweeted them. But after Twitter got caught they finally released a statement on Saturday night saying these anti-Trump maneuvers were just a glitch.
  • As the war in Afghanistan rages on, Al Villanueva and other Pittsburgh veterans watch — and question

    Al Villanueva was 12 when the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center prompted the U.S. to invade Afghanistan in 2001. Eighteen years, three tours of duty and five NFL seasons later, the war continues. Mr. Villanueva, the Steelers’ left tackle and locally perhaps the most well-known veteran of the war in Afghanistan, belongs to a large Pittsburgh community of post-9/11 veterans, a portion of the nearly 800,000 who have deployed to Afghanistan with the initial mission of hunting down Osama bin Laden and the Taliban who protected him. Bin Laden is dead, but the Taliban, once nearly vanquished,...

    December 9, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – LifeSite has been locked out of Twitter for “violating” its “rules” after tweeting an article about Jonathan “Jessica” Yaniv, a transgender activist who recently complained that gynecologists wouldn’t see him as a patient. Yaniv is famous for taking 15 beauticians to the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal over their refusal to wax his genitals, a battle he ultimately lost. Twitter gave LifeSiteNews the option to delete the tweet and reactivate our account immediately. But instead we have launched an appeal of the decision. Twitter claimed that the tweet violated its rules, but didn’t specify which...

    Twitter users who disapprove of President Donald Trump are especially prominent on the platform, Pew Research Center finds. There's no question that Twitter plays a major role in US politics, particularly with its policy of letting world leaders like President Donald Trump tweet what they want, even if those tweets violate the tech giant's rules of engagement. But only 22% of Americans actually use Twitter, and of those, most political tweets are coming from a very small number, according to a Wednesday report from the Pew Research Center. Pew analyzed the tweets of more than 2,400 random US adults with...

    Twitter is toying with the idea of auto-deleting old tweets or other methods of addressing users' fears of posting, the company's head of product said on The Verge's podcast, Vergecast. Kayvon Beykpour was responding to one of the podcast's hosts, Casey Newton, suggesting that tweets go private after existing for a year, citing ever-changing "cultural standards." "Fear of speaking in public and fear of retaliation or fear of being harassed and harassment means many different things to many people," Beykpour, who became Twitter's head of product in 2018, replied. "These are some of the biggest reasons why people don’t tweet,"...

    Carson King raised more than $1 million for an Iowa children's hospital, borne out of a request for beer money on national TV. But old racist tweets ended his relationship with the beer company that promised to match his fundraising. Anheuser-Busch announced it would no longer associate with King after he admitted posting two offensive tweets in 2012 when he was a 16-year-old high school student. "Carson King had multiple social media posts that do not align with our values as a brand or as a company and we will have no further association with him," the company said in...

    ISRAEL—There was a certain man who had two sons, and the younger son demanded his inheritance and then wasted it all in a distant country. When the son came crawling back, begging for forgiveness, the father made a huge celebration to mark the return of his prodigal son. But that celebration was cut short when old tweets the younger son had written surfaced, some of which were characterized as racist. Though the son apologized for those tweets as well, he was immediately kicked out of the house. “He was dead and is alive again,” the father said, “but is now...

    Critics of the Trump administration’s foreign policy have forgotten the mistakes and misjudgments of its predecessor midst the daily foibles, inanities, Twitter meltdowns and rhetorical outrages of the Donald Trump presidency, it is sometimes difficult to comprehend just how systematically and conclusively his predecessor’s worldview has been discredited. When Barack Obama swore the oath of office just over a decade ago, he entered the White House with a deep conviction that many of the world’s problems were chiefly the consequence of American hubris. What followed was an agenda that prioritised the lowering of tensions with traditional American antagonists over the...

    Kudos to our president for punching down, up, sideways, parallel, and perpendicular.  The America-hating left-wing zealots have politicized our culture to the point where everything and everyone is fair game.  Donald Trump's tweets are actually a reaction to this politicization, and with every snappy, in-your face tweet, he proves that the control freaks on the Left can dish it out but can't take it. During an MSNBC special on prison reform, singer John Legend and MSNBC host Lester Holt failed to mention or credit President Trump and others for successfully signing into law the First Step Act.  Trump has touted this groundbreaking reform...

    NEW YORK, Sept 9 (Reuters) - Traders know that when President Donald Trump tweets he can rock financial markets, often in unpredictable ways, but analysts at JP Morgan have now quantified the impact of his tweets, at least on the U.S. interest rates market. Trump’s tweets, which have in recent months veered toward market-sensitive topics such as trade and monetary policy, have increasingly moved U.S. rates markets, analyst Munier Salem said in a note on Friday. In the report, which runs well over 4,000 words, J.P. Morgan analysts use machine learning techniques and their own volatility model to show how...

    If New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger is looking for support from other media outlets for his complaint about embarrassing tweets by journalists for his newspaper being exposed, he can cross Politico off his list. Senior media writer Jack Shafer has no sympathy for that complaint as he made clear in his Monday Politico Magazine article, "Why Journalists’ Old Tweets Are Fair Game for Trump."The subtitle of his story is even more specific and points directly at the Gray Lady, "New York Times editors don’t deserve special immunity from scrutiny for bigoted speech."
