REVEALED: How Twitter Turns a Blind Eye to Child Rape Videos Distributed on Their Platform


Reported by   | May 23, 2020

An exposé by Rappler has shown the extent to which Twitter is fueling the global child pornography industry.

“Videos featuring minors now exist alongside leaked private sex videos of young adults on social media, particularly on Twitter, where anonymous accounts troop to sell illegally recorded material,” journalist Jodesz Gavilan wrote in the scandalous report.

Gavilan used an example of a video from the Philippines featuring a young boy having his genitals touched on camera. It was shown on Twitter in a teaser video with 300 pesos needed to see the entire child rape video, according to the exposé.

Child pornography is openly spread over Twitter through various hashtags and code words. One term frequently used is “bagets,” which is a euphemism used to refer to young people. Other times they are tagged as “Kiddie Meals” or “SHS” meaning senior high school students.

Rappler uncovered at least eight different accounts on Twitter that were openly selling or trading child pornography on the platform. Examples of videos advertised on the platform include an explicit picture of young boys having sex and young boy being viciously molested by an older man.

Other accounts sell “experiences” with young children, indicating that Twitter may be a child sex trafficking network as well. One account allows customers to buy cybersex experiences with children. This is particularly prevalent in the Philippines, where the exploitation of children is a massive problem.

“Even though there is commendable progress in tackling child sexual exploitation in the country…there have been nonetheless only limited attempts to document and measure the exploitation of children,” said Sheila Estabillo, who leads the Plan International Philippines’ Cyber Safe Spaces Project, to Rappler.

Big League Politics has reported on how Twitter modified their terms of service to allow pedophiles to network on their platform and discuss their attraction to children in graphic terms:

Social media giant Twitter has quietly amended their terms of service to allow for “discussions related to… attraction towards minors” to be allowed on their platform.

“Discussions related to child sexual exploitation as a phenomenon or attraction towards minors are permitted, provided they don’t promote or glorify child sexual exploitation in any way,” reads Twitter’s terms of service.

Twitter allow noted that they would allow for nude depictions of children on their platform in certain instances.

“Artistic depictions of nude minors in a non-sexualized context or setting may be permitted in a limited number of scenarios e.g., works by internationally renowned artists that feature minors,” they added.

Twitter’s pro-pedo policy may have been implemented at the behest of Dr. James Cantor, who describes himself as a proud Jewish homosexual. Cantor is a leading researcher and advocate for pedophiles, who he refers to as minor-attracted persons.

Cantor wrote a letter in Jan. 2018 to John Starr, who works as Director of Trust and Safety with Twitter, with other university academics. The letter urged Twitter to allow pedophiles to network and discuss their attraction to children on the monolithic social media platform…

While conservatives, libertarians and Trump supporters regularly get booted from Twitter for constitutionally-protected speech, Twitter actively harbors pedophiles and their enablers. Big Brother is not looking out for the sanctity of the children.

The pro-pedo agenda is being pushed forward by Big Tech entities, as soulless reprobates get ready to add the P to the LGBT acronym.

Ann Coulter OPED: Liberal Privilege in Two Tweets


Commentary by Ann Coulter Ann Coulter Posted: May 13, 2020 4:45 PM

Liberal Privilege in Two Tweets

Source: AP Photo/Richard Vogel

This week, we’ll look at two tweets that encapsulate everything that’s wrong with the “white privilege” narrative consuming our nation. The Twitter account @nowthisnews posted a video of shutdown protesters yelling at police in California, Colorado and Michigan with the heading: What would happen if protesters of color acted this way to police?

Audra McDonald (@AudraEqualityMc) responded: “We’d all have been shot dead. Next question.”

Unless Ms. McDonald is a time-traveler from 1965, I can’t imagine what she’s talking about. Was she at the Sharpeville Massacre? McDonald is an actress, and therefore I assume an idiot, but her profoundly ignorant tweet was enthusiastically endorsed by MSNBC talking heads and, at last count, had more than 16,000 “likes” and thousands of retweets.

Are they talking about Ferguson, Missouri, where cops stood by during the 2014 riots and politely watched the city burn? In response to the police shooting of Michael Brown — a shooting that both the grand jury and Eric Holder’s Justice Department found was justified — mostly black protesters raged off and on for months, torching dozens of buildings, shooting at responding firemen, looting stores and throwing rocks at the police. And yet — miraculously! — no protesters were “shot dead.” No protesters were even arrested, unless they committed felonies in open view of the police.

To the contrary, two policemen were shot by a black protester.

It was the same thing at Black Lives Matter protests across the nation — in Baltimore, Oakland, Dallas, Baton Rouge and so on. Cops stood mutely, as water was dumped on them, their patrol cars were set on fire, rocks were hurled at them and protesters screamed obscenities in their faces. Their marching orders: Do nothing unless you see a crime being committed in front of you — and not always even then.

We’ve had Al Sharpton protests in New York City for decades. No protesters shot dead. In fact, I can’t think of a single protest in the 21st century by black people, or by white people, that police have responded to with violence.

When was the last time? You have to go back to the Democratic National Convention protests of 1968 — and those protesters were white. If we’re including the National Guard, there was Kent State in 1970 — also white protesters. The most recent black protest that was met with police violence was Selma, 1965.

Can we restrict wild generalizations about the police to things that have happened in our lifetimes? If you can produce examples of black people being billy-clubbed merely for protesting, we’d all love to see them. We’re looking for something more recent than 1965.

What would happen if protesters of color acted this way to police?

Audra McDonald: “We’d all have been shot dead. Next question.”

Why not, “They’d bring back slavery. Next question”? It’s just as insane.

Facts don’t matter because the “white privilege” craze is just a fashion statement. What opinions do I need to have to be fashionable? I’m so busy, I go to a lot of dinner parties. Could you fix me up with some opinions? Absolutely! You want to talk about “white privilege,” “racist cops” and “systemic racism” — using these phrases will get you wild applause.

Liberals are so mesmerized by racism fantasies that they don’t look at their own evidence. The video posted by @nowthisnews shows white protesters expressing their opinions volubly at the police. If the protesters were black, these would be called “peaceful protests.”

In one clip, a white guy shows up at a Denver rally with a holstered gun. Then you see the cops handcuffing him. The end. Explain to me how that’s an example of “white privilege.” I think it’s more an illustration of “white protester being subjected to the operation of the law.”

LIBERALSIt’s a white male with a gun! Nuff said.

JUDGE: Did you look at this tape, counselor? Meet me in chambers. I’m trying to help you. This is defense evidence.

The mass delusion about “white privilege” and “systemic racism” has real-world consequences. At a BLM protest in Dallas in July 2016, a black man furious about “racist” police murdered five white policemen in cold blood, wounded seven more and held the city hostage for hours. That year, BLM-inspired activists also murdered three police officers in Baton Rouge and two in New York City.

Everyone’s already forgotten about those racist murders. (Admittedly it was four long years ago, not nearly as recent as 1965.)

Even at the time, the Democratic Party couldn’t support the assassinated officers without eulogizing Black Lives Matter. Days after the Dallas slaughter, President Obama invited Black Lives Matter representatives to the White House. Hillary Clinton went to CNN to give her considered response to the bloodbath in Dallas. Ignoring the dead officers, she cited a string of recent police shootings, pledged to “go after systemic racism, which is a reality” and called on “white people, like myself, to put ourselves in the shoes of those African-American families who fear every time their children go somewhere.”

This, as the corpses of five white policemen lay in a Dallas morgue, basking in their “white privilege.” Or as Ms. McDonald would say, “Shot dead. Next question.”

University of Minnesota is Silent as Student Get Six Months in Chinese Prison for Twitter Posts


Reported by  Published on

The College Fix reported that the University of Minnesota has refused to comment on a situation involving a student who was sent to a Chinese prison for a series of Twitter posts he made while he was stateside.

“We just became aware of this situation when media began reaching out yesterday,” university spokesman Jake Ricker told The College Fix in an email on Thursday, January 23, 2020. “The university has not issued a statement on the matter.”

Spokespersons for Democratic Senators Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith of Minnesota both remained silent when The College Fix made comment requests.

On Tuesday night, a Chinese-language Twitter account published court documents showing that the 20-year-old University of Minnesota student Daiqing Luo had been arrested back in July in his home city of Wuhan.

According to an Axios report released Wednesday, Luo was charged with posting over 40 tweets that criticized a “national leader.” These tweets included satirical depictions of Chinese President Xi Jinping. One of the tweets featured the infamous Winnie the Pooh image, which has been banned in China after social media users likened the bear to Xi. According to Axios, Luo was in detention for months following his arrest before he received a six month sentence for “provocation.”

“The case represents a dramatic escalation of the Chinese government’s attempts to shut down free speech abroad and a global expansion of a Chinese police campaign to track down Twitter users in China who posted content critical of the Chinese government,” the Axios report indicated.

Ricker, the university spokesman, informed other media outlets the university doesn’t “have any information about the situation.”

Kris Olds, a professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, told The College Fix that American universities should be stepping up to protect their students.

“Given the emergence of select government strategies to engage in surveillance practices regarding students studying abroad, I think universities need to develop comprehensive & up-to-date education programs to ensure their international students know what is happening, why, and how, so that students are fully aware of this evolving situation,” Olds said to The Fix in an e-mail.

“We also have to ensure we treat all of our students, including students studying abroad, and international students studying at US campus, the same with respect to levels of support when troubles emerge due to acts that occur when they are students,” said Olds. “In such a case, this may include legal assistance, consular support, engagement with security units, family support, and so on.”

“All of our registered students deserve equal and fair treatment regardless of their citizenship or location on the planet,” Olds stated.

Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse demanded that China release Luo. “This is what ruthless and paranoid totalitarianism looks like,” Sasse told Axios.

Thanks to Trump’s confrontational stance with China on the tariff war, China’s façade is off. People are starting to recognize China’s authoritarian legacy, which still lives on in present-day Chinese Communist Party.

Trump Responds to Barr’s Summary of Mueller Report with Epic Image


Reported By James Luksic | Published April 18, 2019 at 8:40am | Modified April 18, 2019 at 8:58am

President Donald Trump didn’t waste much time expressing his thoughts about Attorney General William Barr’s news conference Thursday morning. Moments after Barr asserted the Mueller report concluded that Trump’s campaign didn’t collude with Russia and that no evidence of obstruction was established, the president posted on social media. True to form, the image Trump tweeted was commensurate with trolling the opposition, with an assist from HBO’s series “Game of Thrones.

Game on, indeed. Not unlike Pavlov’s dogs, Trump critics — including overzealous Hill editor Brian Krassenstein — were swiftly triggered and reacted in kind, with a side of profanity.

Democrats and other NeverTrumpers will follow suit — via social media or before the cameras — with their predictable litany of liberal platitudes. Never mind that, as Barr emphasized Thursday, the president didn’t invoke “executive privilege” over the Mueller report.

Such assessments evidently aren’t good enough for those in denial on the left, chiefly Rep. Adam Schiff who continues to perpetuate the desperate myth that there’s “incriminating evidence” against Trump. Forget the fact that listening to Schiff ramble on is akin to reviewing brake fluid.

Countless Democrats will strive to emasculate the commander in chief, despite little or no proof of any wrongdoing related to his 2016 campaign.

Another certainty is that shameless members of the mainstream media will blur the lines between reporting and coloring. That’s a given, even though Barr assured reporters that a version of Mueller’s report with few redactions will soon be made available to a bipartisan group.

Onward we go, with the left’s high-octane accusations peppered with whining. Cue the drama queens, stage left.

Breitbart reported that Hillary Clinton, despite her torpor these days, compared the current political climate to the “Twilight Zone” — something the former first lady would know about. Evidently, she feels the need to voice her opinion nationwide, even when it falls on deaf ears.

Within minutes of Trump tweeting the “Game of Thrones” image, his enemies took the bait.

Game over? It’s more like “Let the games begin.”

Homeland Security: Number of Illegals Apprehended at Southern Border Nearly Doubles

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection — a subset agency of the Department of Homeland Security — reported a total of 47,893 apprehensions of illegal migrants in January at the Southwest border, a region of the U.S.-Mexico border that is the most active. The number marked an increase of nearly 22,000 arrests, or 84 percent, from January 2018.

The huge uptick could suggest more illegal immigrants will try to cross the U.S.-Mexico border in 2019 than originally anticipated.

Princeton Policy Advisors — a group that analyses immigration trends — is currently forecasting 606,000 apprehensions for the entire year, but they left the door open to increase this projection.

“The January numbers don’t yet warrant an upward revision in our forecast of 606,000 apprehensions in 2019. But we are on notice,” Steven Kopits, president of Princeton, stated to the Washington Examiner. “Buckle your seat belts: 2019 could be a wild ride at the southwest border.”

The January numbers reflect a growing trend at the U.S.-Mexico border. Nearly 467,000 apprehensions took place at the U.S. Southern border in 2018, more than any other calendar year since at least 2012, according to an analysis by the Pew Research Center. The spike in arrests was led in large part by migrant families attempting to reach the U.S. illegally at the tail end of 2018. While rising apprehensions can be indicative of more migrants attempting to enter the U.S., the numbers also reflect an evolving strategy among illegal migrants.

Many illegal immigrants reach the border with the intention of getting caught by border patrol where they can then make an asylum claim. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, for example, recorded 78,564 asylum requests in 2017, a huge increase from the 13,880 requests made in 2012.

“Remember, the problem right now isn’t people crossing the border illegally. It’s people presenting themselves to border patrol agents – people who want to get apprehended so they can lodge a frivolous asylum claim,” RJ Hauman, director of government relations for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, stated to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“They know we don’t have the detention space, so we just release them into the interior of the country.”

US Army To Give Soldiers New 1-Ounce Hidden Weapons That Will Change the Game


Reported By Jack Davis | February 2, 2019 at 7:37pm

Army units will soon be equipped with pocket-sized drones to give them an edge on the battlefield.

The Army has awarded FLIR Systems a $39.6 million contract to provide Black Hornet personal-reconnaissance drones, the company said in a release on its website.

The drones are 6.6 inches long and weigh 1.16 ounces, the company said. They can fly in day or night conditions for up to 1.24 miles. The drones have a maximum speed of 20 feet per second.

The drones can remain airborne for about 25 minutes.

Once the army gets the drones, they will be deployed with a Brigade Combat Team. The location of that team has not been announced.

The drones “will give our soldiers operating at the squad level immediate situational awareness of the battlefield through its ability to gather intelligence, provide surveillance, and conduct reconnaissance,” Army spokesman Lt. Col. Isaac Taylor said, according to Task and Purpose.

The company said that the “nano unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) systems” are “small enough for a dismounted soldier to carry on a utility belt.”

“The highly capable nano-unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) systems delivered under this contract will support platoon and small unit level surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities as part of the Soldier Borne Sensor (SBS) Program,” FLIR said in a statement.

“We are proud to be selected by the U.S. Army for the SBS Program of Record. This contract represents a significant milestone with the operational large-scale deployment of nano-UAVs into the world’s most powerful Army,” said Jim Cannon, President and CEO of FLIR.

“This contract is a major win for the newly established Unmanned Systems & Integrated Solutions business division at FLIR and demonstrates the strong and urgent demand for nano-UAV technology offered by FLIR. Protecting U.S. warfighters with our unmanned solutions is a key objective for FLIR,” he said.

Cannon has said that having the drones available “represents a key opportunity to provide soldiers in every U.S. Army squad a critical advantage on the modern battlefield,” CNET has reported.

The Marines have tested similar technology, according to the Army Times.  FLIR also recently announced that it would be supplying similar technology to French forces.

Stars and Stripes said that British forces in Afghanistan have used similar devices.

Police Report Is Game-Changer in Case of Gay, Black Actor Attacked by ‘Trump Supporters’


Reported By C. Douglas Golden | January 30, 2019 at 9:29am

When gay black actor Jussie Smollett said he was attacked by white men who yelled some stuff about “MAGA,” it didn’t take long for the liberal rage machine to mobilize.

“The star of the tv show ‘Empire,’ Jussie Smollett, was attacked by two assailants early Monday morning in Downtown Chicago according to Chicago Police Department Spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi,” CNN reported.

“Smollett, 36, was walking on the 300 block of E. North Lower Water Street when two men approached him and ‘gained his attention by yelling out racial and homophobic slurs towards him,’ Guglielmi says in a statement.

“Two unknown offenders — it is unknown if they were male or female — then attacked Smollett, hitting him in the face and then poured an unknown chemical substance on him.

“At some point during the scuffle, one of the offenders wrapped a rope around the victim’s neck and then both offenders fled the scene, the statement reads.”

Smollett took himself to Northwestern Hospital, where the incident was reported to police, according to CBS Chicago.

There was plenty of condemnation to go around, particularly after TMZ reported that the attackers had shouted “this is MAGA country.” Two of the outraged included black Democratic senators, who just by chance, happen to either be running for president or widely expected to be running for president.

There was one problem with this “modern-day lynching” narrative: None of that “MAGA country” stuff was originally mentioned to police and they’re having trouble corroborating the fact that the attack even happened.

“According to the victim, the offenders’ faces were concealed,” a police spokesman said, according to Reason. “We have no record indicating that (they shouted ‘MAGA’), we only have record of them shouting racial and homophobic slurs at him.”

A statement from Chicago Police confirmed that, Reason reported.

“We have no record of the ‘MAGA Country’ comment,” the statement said, according to Reason. “We have racial and homophobic comments documented.”

CNN reported that when police heard about the accusation and called the actor, he “relayed it to detectives in a supplemental interview.”

But then again, there’s some doubt as to whether the attack even happened.

In an area that has a “very high density” of surveillance cameras, according to the police spokesman’s statement, there is not a single image of an attack like the one Smollett described.

“A Chicago police spokesperson tells CNN that investigators canvassed the neighborhood where the reported attack occurred on actor Jussie Smollett and have found no still images or video from security cameras of the incident,” CNN reported.

“The only image of Smollett police obtained from security cameras was inside Subway Sandwich shop near the location of the reported crime, the actor was standing alone.”

For all I know, Smollett really was attacked by bigots who shouted the phrase “MAGA country,” and ambitious, Democratic politicians who are calling this a “a modern-day lynching” are absolutely justified. But here’s the thing — I’m going to wait to see whether or not that’s the case, as everyone else should have.

It hasn’t even been a fortnight since the Covington Catholic incident, and the lesson we were should have taken away from that “teachable moment” — be careful dealing with stories that confirm your cultural narrative — has been lost.

No fewer than two senators with eyes on the 2020 Democratic nomination have taken this accusation as gospel because they can use it as an illustration of supposed Trump-fueled hate coursing through the country, even though no arrests have been made and the evidence is scanty. If this turns out to be a hoax, Sens. Booker and Harris own this, as do the legion of liberals who tweeted this out without waiting for a fuller investigation.

Even if this turns out to be true, what they did was supremely irresponsible. That these two individuals are in the Senate is bad enough. Just imagine one of them in the White House, backed by a legion of people who think Donald Trump supporters are irresponsible bigots, but are willing to blame white Donald Trump supporters for a hate crime without any charges or even direct physical evidence. It will make the Obama years look like pure reason.

All It Took Was 1 Border Photo and Trump Has Leftists Triggered


Reported By C. Douglas Golden | January 12, 2019 at 11:04am

There’s nothing quite like the Trump tweet. It’s not just a matter of owning the libs, as they say. In fact, the tweets often aren’t perfect from a policy and/or public relations standpoint. There’s definitely been some problematic stuff in the presidential feed from time to time.

Nevertheless, therein lies the fun. However much you might think that the president has done harm to his cause in 280 characters or less, his enemies tend to do way more damage to theirs.

Take, for instance, a tweet that should have been entirely unproblematic. After all, it was confrontational, but decidedly true. It involved a section of new fencing being put up along the border:

Now, there wasn’t a whole lot of context here regarding funding, where this was being built or whether or not it was replacing an old barrier. The point was, however, a new border wall was indeed being built — at least according to the tweet.

And thusly did the left half of political Twitter lose their minds.

Dr. Eugene Gu, a surgeon who has become a liberal political hashtag activist because a) he does transplants using tissue from aborted fetuses and b) why the heck not, was definitely triggered by the post.

Yeah, stopping people from entering the United States illegally makes you “like the worst, evil cartoon character villain.” Also, a “Game of Thrones” reference. Yet more proof Trump does triggering better than anyone else. Also, he does “Game of Thrones” references better, too.

Oh, and one of the Brothers Krassenstein commented on it, because of course they did. They didn’t seem to understand the whole mechanics of wall funding or the fact that there are still numerous areas along our southern border that are unsecured:

Someone please remind me why these guys are beloved social media stars.

There was also a tweet from a mental health counselor and author which we can’t show here that basically said, in vulgar terms, that Trump’s “imaginary wall is a metaphor” for his reproductive parts and that he’s building it because there are, ahem, medical issues with said parts. You can see the original tweet here. Again, published mental health counselor.

There are plenty of other tweets in this vein, although these are the most famous lib trolls that seem to have been trolled and don’t seem to get either the purpose of the wall or how it’s funded.

This is the state of the left today. Even the mere mention of the wall sends them into a tizzy. “This was already planned!” “It’s a fence, not a wall!” “You’re a barbarian!” Etc., etc.

And the media says someone in the White House should take away Donald Trump’s Twitter. Not when it creates reactions like this, they shouldn’t.

Filmmaker Embedded in Caravan Gets to the Truth. Migrants Themselves Expose US Media as Total Liars


Reported By Malachi Bailey } November 15, 2018 at 2:16pm

A filmmaker traveled to Mexico and did what the U.S. media didn’t do: he witnessed the migrant caravan for himself and exposed the truth.nFilmmaker Ami Horowitz went to Oaxaca in southern Mexico to uncover the truth about the migrant caravan.

The caravan, consisting of thousands of Honduran illegal immigrants, has caught the attention of the media as it heads toward the United States. However, much of the coverage consists of hand-waving from the left-wing establishment media, which claims the caravan consists of peaceful families just trying to escape violence.

After visiting the caravan for himself, Horowitz came to a different conclusion.

“Despite the framing of the caravan as being full of women and children, the reality on the ground is quite different. Approximately 90 to 95 percent of the migrants were male,” Horowitz said in a Twitter video.

Last month, BBC wrote that “The migrants, mostly from Honduras, say they are fleeing violence and poverty, and include women and children.” That’s a grossly misleading statement for a caravan consisting of over 90 percent men.

The establishment media also continuously repeated the narrative that the caravan is made up of people seeking to escape violence.

“We do know that many migrants have said they are fleeing terrible gang violence, with some fearing for their lives,” The Guardian claimed last month.

However, Horowitz discovered that the migrants are actually seeking employment when they illegally enter the United States.

“The major narrative being pushed by the press has been that the migrants are leaving Honduras because they are facing extreme violence and that their lives are under constant threat,” Horowitz said.

To discover if this was true, the filmmaker asked several migrants, “Why are you coming to America?”

“To get a job,” one responded. “To work,” said another.

It’s clear that these migrants, who are mostly male, are economic migrants seeking American jobs. They aren’t “women and children who are “fleeing violence.”

It’s completely absurd that the truth had to come from a filmmaker investigating the caravan for himself because the establishment media is too busy peddling lies and misinformation.

12 Times Florida County’s Elections Supervisor Has Been ‘Incompetent and Possibly Criminal’

As both parties scrutinize the vote count in Florida’s Broward County, with the state’s gubernatorial and senatorial races closing in on a tie, Sen. Marco Rubio said the county’s elections office has a history of malfeasance.

“This is at a minimum a pattern of incompetence. Voters deserve better,” the Florida Republican said Thursday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“This is not even a partisan thing. This is a county that apparently cannot even count votes as well as a county that just got wiped out by a hurricane.”

The state’s Republican Gov. Rick Scott filed a lawsuit Thursday against Broward election supervisor Brenda Snipes for allegedly refusing to tell them about votes she has not yet counted. The vote totals Snipes tabulated two days after the election would have readers believe that more people cast votes for agricultural commissioner than for U.S. Senator.

Additionally, lawyer Marc Elias of Perkins Coie — who hired Fusion GPS for the Democratic National Committee to investigate Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election — has been hired to litigate a recount on behalf of Democrats.

The Republican National Committee also pointed out 12 times news stories using its own headlines where Snipes has “been outright incompetent and possibly criminal”:

Armed with Assault Rifles, Black Panthers March for Stacey Abrams


Reported By Jason Hopkins | November 4, 2018 at 10:11am

Members of the Black Panther Party marched through the city of Atlanta, strapped with assault rifles and brandishing Stacey Abrams campaign signs. In a video posted on the group’s Facebook page on Saturday, members of the Black Panther Party are seen marching through the West End neighborhood of Atlanta in support of Stacey Abrams gubernatorial campaign. As they marched, the Black Panthers carried assault rifles and continually shouted slogans such as “black power” and “power to the people.”

The video shows the panthers marching for nearly 30 minutes through the city of Atlanta until they enter a local radio station.

When reached for comment by The Daily Caller News Foundation, the Abrams campaign forwarded a statement from spokeswoman Abigail Collazo. Her statement did not specifically address the Panthers’ march, but instead attacked Kemp.

“Brian Kemp is the only candidate in this race who has posed for pictures with supporters wearing racist, hate-filled t-shirts and refused to denounce them, while Abrams continues to condemn any racist, anti-Semitic, or otherwise discriminatory words and actions,” Collazo said.

“Unlike Kemp, Abrams is a leader committed to running an inclusive campaign focused on bringing all Georgians together to find bold solutions on critical issues like health care, education, and the economy,” she continued.

At one point during the march, someone driving a vehicle stopped momentarily to speak to the Panthers.

One of the members can be heard saying afterward: “You need to march in your neighborhood. When we was (sic) in West Virginia, 99 percent crackers, stone cold crackers.”

Kemp’s campaign called on Abrams to immediately denounce the Black Panthers.

“It’s no surprise that militant Black Panthers are armed and patrolling the streets of Georgia for Stacey Abrams. The Black Panthers are a radical hate group with a racist and anti-semitic agenda. They are dangerous and encourage violence against our men and women in uniform,” Kemp spokesman Ryan Mahoney said in a statement to TheDCNF.

“Stacey Abrams should immediately denounce the Black Panthers and their hateful record of racism,” he continued. “She should stand against and condemn their attempts to intimidate hardworking Georgia voters just days before the election.”

The close race has brought star power from both sides of the aisle. Vice President Mike Pence campaigned for Kemp on Thursday — the same day Oprah Winfrey knocked on doors on behalf of Abrams.

The Panthers did not respond to a request for comment by TheDCNF.

Soros? GOP Rep. Posts Video Purportedly Showing People Being Paid To Join Honduran Caravan


Reported By Benjamin Arie | October 17, 2018 at 4:09pm

Are poor Hondurans being bribed to join the latest migrant caravan heading for the U.S. border … and if so, who is paying them? That’s the question that Rep. Matt Gaetz is raising after he discovered footage of a strange scene allegedly shot in Central America.

On Wednesday, the Florida Republican posted a one-minute video that appears to show women being handed cash to join a group — possibly, according to Gaetz, to be part of a slow-moving horde that plans on making its way north through Mexico and then into the United States.

The suspicious timing of the caravan, just three weeks before November’s midterm elections, and questions about what was happening in the clip were both raised by Gaetz on Twitter.

“Footage in Honduras giving cash 2 women & children 2 join the caravan & storm the US border @ election time,” the congressman posted.

Soros?” he continued, referring to one of the most infamous wealthy backers of liberal political movements, billionaire George Soros.

“US-backed NGOs? Time to investigate the source!” Gaetz wrote.

Information was not immediately available regarding where the video came from or what, precisely, it showed. More than 15,000 Twitter users responded to the post online, and the comments about the video were overwhelmingly against illegal immigration.

While many details about the clip are still missing, Gaetz’s allegation would have serious implications if it is accurate. A scheme that paid poor Central American citizens to leave their country and march toward the U.S. border would help explain the speed at which the latest caravan has grown in size.

“Up to 3,000 (Upgraded to 4,000) migrants crossed from Honduras into Guatemala on Monday on a trek northward, after a standoff with police in riot gear and warnings from Washington that migrants should not try to enter the United States illegally,” Reuters reported on Tuesday.
“The crowd more than doubled in size from Saturday, when some 1,300 people set off from northern Honduras in what has been dubbed ‘March of the Migrant,’” the news service continued.

It probably wouldn’t take much money to tempt them. The average monthly income in Honduras is about $230 U.S., and that’s if a person actually has a job in its shattered economy.

There are a number of plausible explanations for the footage shared by Gaetz, including the possibility of a non-governmental organization trying to assist the migrants by handing out cash for their unsanctioned journey.

Gaetz’s theory about somebody like Soros pulling strings to influence what is happening may be less likely, but it certainly is worth considering.

InfluenceWatch, a project from the Capital Research Center that tracks the funding of various groups, lists several Soros-backed movements in the category of “Mass Mobilization.”

The leftist billionaire has been linked to disruptive organizations including Black Lives Matter and the Women’s March, and may be linked to the radical far-left group “antifa” as well.

“(T)he left-wing billionaire George Soros has ties to Antifa through a group called the Alliance for Global Justice (AfGJ),” explained the Capital Research Center. “Soros’s philanthropy, known at the time as the Open Society Institute, gave $100,000 to AfGJ.”

Considering that Soros is also an avowed advocate of open borders in Europe, according to The Daily Caller, it wouldn’t be that much of a stretch for him to have his financial tentacles in the growing Central American immigration crisis.

More and more, political issues are not exactly what they seem. It’s time to follow the money and dig into what is happening with the migrant situation — and it wouldn’t be surprising if there were some shady figures pulling levers behind the scenes.

The original headline for this article was unclear whether Hondurans were being paid or were themselves paying to join the “caravan.” It also implied that such payment might be an illegal activity, which is unknown. We have therefore updated the headline for clarity. — Ed. note

Antifa Shut Down Major Intersection, Threaten Citizens with Violence If They Don’t Obey


Reported By Jack Davis | October 8, 2018 at 5:48pm

Antifa protesters holding a vigil for a man shot to death by Portland police made it clear Saturday that they were taking over, and there was no room for anything else but obedience to mob rule.

The raw violence was captured by Brandon Farley, who in his Twitter profile says he captures “disruptive events in downtown Portland, Oregon.”

Warning: the following embedded videos contain strong language.

At one point, protesters blocked off an intersection as though they were the police and refused to let drivers pass.

A woman, asked by a driver why traffic was rerouted, had no time to explain.

“Because I told you to,” she said.

Various videos posted to Twitter show protesters threatening elderly drivers who did not understand what was going on.

Antifa protesters swarmed one car when it did not comply.

“Yeah brother, yeah you little white little f—er,” said one protester. “The First Amendment. Get the f— down the road.”

In the video, he appeared to notice that the car was registered in North Carolina and called the driver a “little white supremacist.”

“Go back to North Carolina where you came from. We don’t need your KKK in Portland, Oregon,” the protester said.

Meanwhile, drivers were frazzled.
“I’m in the middle of the intersection and (the protesters) are blocking traffic,” one confused driver says into his phone.
“We’re not here to riot. We’re here for justice,” said Charles Kimmons, who is related to victim Patrick Kimmons, according to Oregon Live. “We need to fight this all the way to the end. These cops need to be locked up.”

Police have said that Patrick Kimmons was shot at about 3 a.m. on Sept. 30 when police, responding to a call of a shooting, encountered Kimmons, who was armed.

Antifa has been on a rampage in Portland since June, when protesters blocked the offices of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and neither city officials nor police did anything to help the federal workers targeted.

Twitter Rejects Ads Using the Words ‘Illegal Alien’ and ‘Criminal Alien,’ Calling That ‘Hate Speech’


Twitter says they shouldn’t be called illegal aliens: The Border Patrol discovers 25 residents of Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras huddled inside a trailer July 25 at the border checkpoint in Falfurrias, Texas. (Photo: Border Patrol/Polaris/Newscom)

Twitter rejected four tweets from a Washington-based immigration research center’s advertising campaign as “hate speech” Tuesday because they used the legal terms “illegal alien” and “criminal alien.”

The rejected tweets by the Center for Immigration Studies, proposed for its Twitter Ads campaign to attract more followers, generally provided a statistic or factual statement and pressed for an immigration-related policy.

One tweet included a video from The Daily Caller news organization depicting immigrants illegally crossing the border and said the video “reminds us why we need a wall” and “the best defense is always to prevent individuals from entering in the first place.”

Another rejected tweet from the Center for Immigration Studies referred to a news story about arrests made by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and provided a statistic:

In a press release Wednesday, the immigration research group said Twitter approved “several other” tweets for the Twitter Ads campaign. When the center asked why the social media company had rejected the four tweets, it said it received this response from the company:

We’ve reviewed your tweets and confirmed that it is ineligible to participate in the Twitter Ads program at this time based on our Hateful Content policy. Violating content includes, but is not limited to, that which is hate speech or advocacy against a protected group.

The immigration center said its motive was “to promote specific tweets in order to drive traffic” to its website, not to violate Twitter’s “Hateful Content Policy.”

The term “illegal alien” is a precise term in law, Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation, wrote in a recent commentary for The Daily Signal decrying politically correct language  about illegal immigration such as “undocumented immigrant”:

‘Alien’—rather than ‘immigrant’—is the correct legal term, since ‘alien’ is defined in 8 U.S.C. §1101 (a)(3) as ‘any person not a citizen or national of the United States.’

Precision in the law is a vital principle, since the exact words used in statutes, regulations, contracts, guidance documents, and policy statements can significantly affect how they are applied and interpreted.

>>> Commentary: ‘Undocumented Immigrant’ Is a Made-Up Term That Ignores the Law

Twitter did not respond to The Daily Signal’s request for comment.

Marguerite Telford, communications director at the Center for Immigration Studies, said in the group’s release:

Organizations of all kinds pay Twitter to promote specific tweets in order to drive traffic to an organization’s website. Twitter advertises that the ads ‘can get you more likes, amplify your message, and get more people talking about the things that matter to you most – your cause, project, business, or brand.’ This is exactly why the center selected these specific tweets to be placed as ads.

At a July congressional hearing on social media filtering practices, House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte said that social media platforms need to ‘do a better job explaining how they make decisions to filter content and the rationale for why they do so.’

We agree.

Maxine Waters Panders To Millennial Voters, Shamed When Only 10 Kids Show Up For Event



disclaimerReported By Ben Marquis | June 4, 2018 at 1:25pm

 

Largely owing to her vehement and vitriolic opposition to President Donald Trump, Democratic California Rep. Maxine “Impeach 45! Waters has been heralded as something of a leader among liberals these days.

The media has even attempted to portray the 79-year-old Waters as some sort of guiding beacon for liberals of the millennial generation, granting her the nickname “Auntie Maxine” in a bid to further the notion that young people will flock to and follow her experienced wisdom.

But that image of Waters is little more than illusory, as was clearly revealed during a campaign event Sunday which was explicitly targeted toward young millennials but had an exceptionally low turnout among the desired audience, according to The American Mirror

Waters promoted the June 3 event on Twitter as a “Meet & Greet Tweet-a-thon” with the elected representative and young supporters.

max01amax01b

The event was intended to teach Waters’ young supporters how to “reclaim our time” and get them “energized and ready” to get out and vote on her behalf.

But judging by the comments on that post, Waters’ support among not just millennials, but voters of all ages in general, was simply not evident, nor was it evident in a short video from the event tweeted out by Waters later in the day. 

Judging by that tweet, not many more than 10-15 actual millennials showed up to meet and greet Waters, a majority of whom ended up uncomfortably arrayed at the front with a microphone shoved in their face to speak about the issues most important to them. They mostly spoke about immigration concerns and their mounting student debt, as well as the increasingly dismal homeless problem in the state.homeless numbers

Waters eventually reclaimed the microphone from her young supporters and delivered a brief campaign-style speech which proclaimed that Democrats would retake control of Congress via an energized “Blue Wave” of liberal and progressive voters in the November midterm elections.

As the camera panned around during her speech, empty tables and chairs sparsely populated by a handful of older and senior supporters were on display. 

At one point near the end of her monologue, Waters shifted her focus toward attacking her chief rival in the upcoming election, Republican candidate Omar Navarro, who she appeared to smear based on his alleged wrong way of thinking as a person of Latino heritage.

“He has a last name that is Latin. He’s Cuban and what a lot of our people don’t understand is, he supports the president building a wall,”  Waters said of her GOP opponent.

“He’s opposed to DACA, he does not support DACA, and in addition to that, he is not worried at all, has not said a word about what is happening at the border,” Waters added, a reference to the separation of families that come across the border illegally, a policy that existed under former President Barack Obama but which has now drawn fire under Trump as it is actually being enforced.

Waters does not represent the next great hope of the Democratic party among young millennial voters, but if the liberal media wants to continue to press that ludicrous narrative in spite of evidence to the contrary, let them have at it.

Breaking: ABC Officially Cancels ‘Roseanne’ After Controversial Barr Tweet

Within hours of Roseanne Barr sending a tweet with racially charged comments about a former member of the Obama administration, ABC announced it was cancelling “Roseanne” — one of the network’s biggest hits of the past TV season.

“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” ABC said.

Disney CEO Bob Iger took to Twitter to add, “There was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing.”

Earlier Tuesday, in a tweet that has since been deleted, Barr suggested former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett was the result of the “Muslim brotherhood & Planet of the Apes” having a baby.

The comments drew immediate criticism and Barr attempted to apologize.Picture2

Shortly after Barr’s original tweet, Wanda Sykes said she would not be returning to the show as its consulting producer.

Sara Gilbert, who plays Barr’s daughter on the ABC sitcom, also criticized Barr’s comments, saying they are “abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show.” 

“This is incredibly sad and difficult for all of us, as we’ve created a show that we believe in, are proud of, and that audiences love — one that is separate and apart from the opinions and words of one cast member,” Gilbert said in a another tweet.

Prior to ABC’s announcement, Barr was blasted on Twitter for her comments, with several demanding ABC cancel her show.

News of the show’s cancellation comes almost two months to the day after the reboot of the popular 1980s and ’90s sitcom show premiered to huge ratings. More than 18 million people watched the March 27 episode of the updated show, exceeding the viewership for its original series finale in 1997 by 10 percentThe show was noteworthy for Barr’s character being a Trump supporter and viewers liked the middle-class lifestyle portrayed on the program.

After the strong debut, the show saw its viewership fall to roughly 10 million viewers for its season finale, which aired last week. Still, those numbers were more than strong enough to convince ABC to bring the show back in September.

Breaking: Trump Pulls Out of Summit with North Korea, ‘Sad Moment in History’


disclaimerReported By Rebekah Baker | May 24, 2018 at 7:52am

URL of the original posting site: https://www.westernjournal.com/breaking-trump-pulls-out-of-summit-with-north-korea-sad-moment-in-history/

President Donald Trump announced Thursday morning that his highly anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been canceled. The president pointed to Kim’s “hostility” displayed in the past month as the reason why going forward with the summit would be “inappropriate.”

Earlier this month, Kim had threatened to pull out of the meeting with Trump set to be held in Singapore on June 12 and also abruptly canceled a meeting with South Korea.

 

“Based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting,” Trump wrote. “Therefore, please let this letter serve to represent that the Singapore summit, for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world, will not take place.”

tletter01tletter02

Leading up to Trump’s decision, North Korean officials had been threatening to not go through with the summit.

On Thursday, Vice Minister of the North Korean Foreign Ministry, Choe Son Hui, said that whether the U.S. “will meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown is entirely dependent upon the decision and behavior of the United States,” according to South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency.

Choe also made a disparaging comment about Vice President Mike Pence who had said that North Korea asked to have the meeting.

“As a person involved in the U.S. affairs, I cannot suppress my surprise at such ignorant and stupid remarks gushing out from the mouth of the U.S. vice president,” Choe reportedly said.

According to Fox News, however, Trump officials said the threat of nuclear war, not the insult to Pence, was the reason for the summit pullout.

“I felt a wonderful dialogue was building between you and me, and ultimately, it is only that dialogue that matters. Some day, I look very much forward to meeting you,” Trump wrote in his letter to Kim.

“If you change your mind having to do with this most important summit, please do not hesitate to call me or write. The world, and North Korea in particular, has lost a great opportunity for lasting peace and great prosperity and wealth. This missed opportunity is a truly sad moment in history.”

On Monday, Pence noted in an interview with Fox News that unlike former presidential administrations, Trump will not be “played” by North Korea.

“Truthfully, the Clinton administration, even the Bush administration got played in the past,” Pence said.  “It would be a great mistake for Kim Jong Un to think he could play Donald Trump.”

Pence also made clear that Trump was completely willing to walk away from the negotiating table if North Korea backs away from its promises.

“There’s no question,” he said.

When asked whether Trump was concerned about the possible embarrassment that could result if this process with North Korea fails after so much progress, Pence replied, “I don’t think President Truplease likeand share and leave a commentmp is thinking about public relations. He’s thinking about peace.”

10 Tweets About Billy Graham’s Death That Show Liberal Intolerance


Authored By Jonathan Pincus | March 1, 2018 at 10:16am

URL of the original posting site: https://www.westernjournal.com/10-tweets-billy-grahams-death-show-liberal-intolerance/

The recent passing of American evangelist Rev. Billy Graham sent shockwaves throughout the world, with many offering their condolences and kind words to the man on social media.

However, some liberals had to make their dislike of Graham known, even in his death, displaying that even a late pastor isn’t safe from the ugly head of the intolerant left.

WARNING: SOME TWEETS BELOW CONTAIN STRONG LANGUAGE.

Teen Vogue columnist Lauren Duca used the social media platform to offer her not-so-kind words to Graham, telling him to “have fun in hell, b—-.”

Dan Arel, author and self-proclaimed anarchist, joined in the hate-parade aimed at the dearly departed Graham, calling his death “good news.”

While Duca and Arel’s comments seem over the line, they are one of many tweets displaying liberal’s lack of tolerance for Christianity and prominent figures in the faith. A post from former President Barack Obama actually fueled a flurry of intolerant responses from leftists who appeared to have a major dislike for Graham.

“Billy Graham was a humble servant who prayed for so many — and who, with wisdom and grace gave hope and guidance to generations of Americans,” Obama wrote on Feb. 21, much to the chagrin of liberals.

“Delete this,” one Twitter user wrote.

And this was just the tip of the iceberg.

Graham, an evangelical pastor and personal advisor to Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard Nixon, passed away on Feb. 21, 2018, at the age of 99, as reported by Fox News.

Trump Unleashes Video of McCain Promise That Has Him Scrambling


Reported

Advertisement – story continues below

Any 30-year career in the Senate is bound to have some highs and some lows. However, for Sen. John McCain, those lows seem to be agglomerating themselves in what are sure to be his final years in office.

While nobody ever thought that McCain was particularly a movement conservative — in fact, RINOs his size were usually only espied at the zoo or on safari — his unreliability became a major issue after he effectively sank Obamacare repeal in the Senate.

If McCain thought that his vote would be forgotten, or perhaps remembered as a profile in courage — well, it certainly doesn’t look that way from here. And, as President Donald Trump reminded everyone, McCain’s vote was a stab in the back to voters who relied on McCain’s repeated promises to repeal Obamacare.

In a video posted by the president to Twitter on Monday, McCain is seen saying he would repeal and replace President Barack Obama’s signature legislation over and over again:

This is what McCain supporters are scrambling to hide — it’s not just once or twice. That video is over six minutes long. That’s approximately the average length of one of the deep cuts on The Cure’s “Disintegration.” And, you know what? Listening to it is roughly about as depressing.

Yes, I know, John McCain is a war hero. Yes, I know he’s going through a tough time right now with his cancer diagnosis. Yes, I know, he has done some good things for the GOP. He has served his country in both the military and the Senate.

However, now that the GOP-led Congress has given up its final effort to pass Obamacare repeal — a weaksauce, establishment-friendly last-ditch effort at that — it’s instructive to remember who shares the most responsibility for that failure.

All McCain had to do was cast the deciding vote and the Senate’s plan would have gone into conference, where problems could have been hammered out. That’s all he was being asked to do. That’s what he torpedoed at age 81, in what is almost certainly his final term in the Senate.

President Trump isn’t going to forget that McCain singlehandedly killed the last chance to accomplish what the Arizona senator has been promising for years. Neither should you.

US And Allies Send Military Message To North Korea

Advertisement – story continues below

The three nations threatened by North Korea’s nuclear missile program united for a show of force Sunday aimed at reminding Kim Jong-un’s regime that they have dominant air power in the Korean skies.

The United States sent four fighters and two bombers to fly alongside four South Korean fighters over the region near the demilitarized zone that separates the two Koreas. The U.S. aircraft also joined four Japanese fighters to fly over the waters near Kyushu, a Japanese island in close proximity to the Korean Peninsula.

The American planes included two B-1B Lancer bombers from Andersen Air Force Base on Guam, and four Marine Corps F-35B fighters from the Marine Corps Air Station in Iwakuni, Japan, according to U.S. Pacific Command.

It is the second time in the past month that B-1Bs and F-35s have been sent over the Korean Peninsula.

The Pacific Command said the jets, which conducted live-fire exercises, were sent up in response to the Sept. 14 launch of a North Korean missile. The missile flew over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido.

The military exercise came as U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley reminded the word that the United States is getting tired of talking about a resolution to the North Korean crisis.

“If North Korea keeps on with this reckless behavior, if the United States has to defend itself or defend its allies in any way, North Korea will be destroyed,” Haley said. “And we all know that, and none of us want that.”

Haley said the U.S. has been doing everything it can to find a diplomatic solution for the crisis, while leaving military action as a possible last resort.

“We wanted to be responsible and go through all diplomatic means to get their attention first. If that doesn’t work, General Mattis will take care of it,” she said, referencing Secretary of Defense James Mattis.

National security adviser H.R. McMaster said time has all but run out.

“This regime is so close now to threatening the United States and others with a nuclear weapon, that we really have to move with a great sense of urgency on sanctions, on diplomacy and preparing, if necessary, a military option,” McMaster told Fox News Sunday.

Trump Administration Rewards Miami For Reversing Its Sanctuary Policies


Reported 

URL of the original posting site: http://www.westernjournalism.com/trump-administration-rewards-miami-reversing-sanctuary-policies/

Advertisement – story continues below

Miami-Dade County was told Friday by the Department of Justice that it will no longer be treated as a so-called sanctuary city after the county changed its policies in February surrounding detaining jailed inmates sought by federal authorities for deportation.

Miami Mayor Carlos Gimenez was notified by Alan Hanson, an acting assistant attorney general, that the DOJ found “no evidence that Miami Dade County is currently out of compliance,” clearing the way for the county to receive $481,347 in federal law enforcement funding in form of a Byrne JAG grant.

Miami was first classified as a sanctuary city by the Obama administration for its 2013 policy that authorized the county to begin denying “detainer” requests from Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The policy provided that the county would only hold inmates sought for deportation if they faced severe charges and if the federal government would reimburse the county for extra detention time.

But shortly after President Donald Trump was inaugurated in January, Gimenez dropped the policy, ordering county jails to comply with ICE detentions requests.

The Miami-Dade Commission voted 9-3 in February in support of the mayor’s policy to honor ICE detention requests.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced in July that the DOJ would impose new conditions on Byrne JAG grants, a leading source of federal justice funding to state and local jurisdictions.

“From now on, the Department will only provide Byrne JAG grants to cities and states that comply with federal law, allow federal immigration access to detention facilities, and provide 48 hours notice before they release an illegal alien wanted by federal authorities,” Sessions said in a statement announcing the new restrictions.

Miami-Dade’s decision to change its sanctuary status worked. The county received assurances from the DOJ Friday that it was in compliance and would receive a Byrne JAG Grant valued at $481,347, which will go towards enhancing the Miami Dade Police Department’s “intelligence gathering and police operations with investments in technology and specialized equipment,” according to Gimenez.

“This is good news,” said Gimenez’s communications director, Michael Hernández.

Hernández said the county is now requesting that the Trump administration remove Miami-Dade from the Obama administration’s original list of sanctuary cities.

“We’d like to have formal notification that we are no longer a sanctuary community,” Hernández said. “That request is being made.”

Miami-Dade is the only large jurisdiction in the country known to have complied with Trump’s request to crack down on its sanctuary city policy. Other sanctuary cities, such as Chicago, are calling foul at the Trump administration’s new restrictions surrounding Byrne JAG grants. Chicago was expected to receive $3.2 million in federal grants this year to purchase law enforcement equipment. But instead of complying, Chicago opted on Monday to file a lawsuit against the Trump administration to prevent it from enforcing the new policies.

“We are bringing this legal challenge because the rhetoric, the threats from this administration embodied in these new conditions imposed on unrelated public safety grants funds are breeding a culture and climate of fear,” said the senior legal adviser for Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said Sunday it was “tragic” that Emanuel was more concerned about protecting illegal immigrants than he was by the high murder rate on the streets of Chicago.

“It’s especially tragic that the mayor is less concerned with that staggering figure than he is spending time and taxpayer money protecting criminal aliens and putting Chicago’s law enforcement at greater risk,” Flores said in a statement.

Chicago is the first city to challenge the Trump administration over its new restrictions surrounding Byrne JAG grants.

Trump Says Kathy Griffin Should Be Ashamed of Herself After Posting Image


URL of the original posting site: http://conservativetribune.com/trump-statement-kathy-griffin/

Apparently, holding up an effigy of the president’s decapitated, bloody head can get you into trouble. Who knew?

Well, Kathy Griffin now knows. Even the “covfefe” kerfuffle didn’t knock the D-list celebrity out of the headlines after her horrifying photo shoot. Now, she’s gone from having one night a year on a major television network to zero nights a year, as CNN has decided Griffin is actually unfit to get plastered with Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon on live TV this New Year’s Eve.

That’s pretty brutal — and it was all before President Trump decided to lay into her.

In a tweet, the president called Griffin’s actions “sick” and said the beheading photo had an impact on his family.

According to the U.K. Daily Mail, first lady Melania Trump also released a statement in which she criticized Griffin, saying that “(a)s a mother, a wife, and a human being, that photo is very disturbing.”

“When you consider some of the atrocities happening in the world today, a photo opportunity like this is simply wrong and makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it,” she added.

According to a report in TMZ, Barron Trump was left panicked and screaming when the image of Griffin holding his father’s bloodied head showed up on the television news.

“He’s 11. He doesn’t know who Kathy Griffin is and the head she was holding resembled his dad,” a source told TMZ.

The outrage over Griffin’s photo shoot was exacerbated by the fact that her “apology” didn’t actually mention the president or his family by name. Instead, the comic said she was sorry for “cross(ing) the line.”

That’s not going to work this time — not when you’ve threatened a man with effigial beheading on camera. That’s the kind of thing the Islamic State group does, not anti-Trump celebrities. This is just the beginning of a massive backlash for Griffin, and halfhearted apologies aren’t going to cut it.

Former Chief Psychiatrist at Johns Hopkins Has Bad News for Caitlyn Jenner


waving flagReported by Kim Smith on June 8, 2015

URL of the original posting site: http://conservativetribune.com/former-psychiatrist-brutal-news-jenner

Dr. Paul R. McHugh, former psychiatrist in chief for Johns PC TransHopkins Hospital, has an opinion about former Olympic athlete Bruce Jenner’s recent announcement that is sure to upset the many crusading for the transgender movement. McHugh not only believes that changing sexes is biologically impossible, he also believes those identifying themselves as transgender actually have a mental disorder.

McHugh, author of six books and over 125 peer-reviewed medical journal articles, wrote in a Wall Street Journal piece that surgery is not a solution for those wishing to live as the opposite sex.

McHugh wrote that these people believing they can choose their sex suffer from a “disorder of assumption.”

In the piece, he also quoted a study claiming that transgendered people undergoing reassignment surgery are 20 times more likely to commit suicide than non-transgendered people. (H/T BizPac Review)

McHugh also said that while Hollywood and the mainstream media promote transgenderism as normal, they are doing no favors to these people by treating their “confusions” as a right rather than treating them as a mental disorder that deserves treatment and prevention.definetly

The doctor considers the transgendered person’s “assumption” that they are “different than the physical reality of their body “a disorder similar to someone suffering anorexia nervosa.

McHugh claims that pro-transgender advocates do not want to accept the fact that studies indicate between 70 and 80 percent of children who express transgender feelings lose such feelings over time.

Changing sexes is impossible, according to the doctor and all transgendered people do is “become feminized men or masculinized women.”Transgender

In addition, those who had sexual reassignment surgery and felt satisfied with the results of that surgery fared no better in their psycho-social adjustments than those who didn’t have surgery.

Because of these studies, Hopkins stopped doing sex-reassignment surgery, the doctor said.

While certain people will disagree with Dr. McHugh’s statements, more will probably agree. But the liberal media will likely try to smother those who find such transitions troubling and embrace actions that add to the moral decay of our country.

SCARY: Find Out If ISIS Is In Your State


waving flagBy Bethany Blankley April 13, 2016

culture of deceit and liesISIS-related mobilization in America is unprecedented.

According to a recent in-depth report from George Washington University, ISIS In America, From Retweets to Raqqa, ISIS suspects and recruits are in at least 26 states in America.

As of Fall, 2015, there were roughly 250 Americans who were documented to have traveled or attempted to travel to Syria/Iraq to join the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

There are currently 900 active investigations against ISIS sympathizers in all 50 states. Since March, 2014:

  • 71 people have been charged for ISIS-related activities
  • 56 were arrested in 2015 alone– a record number of terrorism-related arrests for any year since 9/11.
  • The majority charged are male (86 percent) and 26 years old.

They were caught in 21 states, in which 

  • ‚  51 percent traveled or attempted to travel abroad,
  • ‚  27 percent were involved in plots to carry out attacks on U.S. soil,
  • ‚  55 percent were arrested in an operation involving an informant and/or an undercover agent.isis01

ISIS Suspects by State in the United States | InsideGov

 

According to the Institute of War, ISIS’s plan for the U.S. is to attack and polarize.isis02

isis03ISIS’s Global Strategy | FindTheData

As part of the University’s Program on Extremism, the researchers reviewed more than 7,000 pages of legal documents detailing ISIS-related legal proceedings. These included “criminal complaints, indictments, affidavits, and courtroom transcripts. Supplemented by original research and interviews with prosecutors, reporters, and, in some select cases, families of the charged individuals, the Program developed a snapshot of the 84 individuals who have been charged for various ISIS-related activities.”

GW’s report is two-fold:

The report, ISIS in America: From Retweets to Raqqa consists of two parts. The first examines all cases of U.S. persons arrested, indicted, or convicted in the United States for ISIS-related activities. A wide array of legal documents related to these cases provides empirical evidence for identifying several demographic factors related to the arrested individuals. This section also looks at the cases of other Americans who, while not in the legal system, are known to have engaged in ISIS-inspired behavior.

The second part of the report examines various aspects of the ISIS-related mobilization in America. Here the report analyzes the individual motivations of ISIS supporters; the role of the Internet and, in particular, social media, in their radicalization and recruitment processes; whether their radicalization took place in isolation or with other, like-minded individuals; and the degree of their tangible links to ISIS.  It concludes with recommendations to combat ISIS recruitment.Islamitization of America

The researchers uncovered that American ISIS supporters are not homogenous. They represent a range of ethnicity, socio-economic and educational backgrounds.

The GW report is one of the largest online collections of legal records of ISIS radicalization and recruitment in the United States.
isis recruits

 

The Program on Extremism identified roughly 300 American and/or U.S.-based ISIS sympathizers who are active on social media, spread propaganda, and interact with like-minded peers. As the report indicates the “online echo chamber eventually make the leap from keyboard warriors to actual militancy.”

ISIS sympathizers in America primarily use Twitter. The program identified user accounts that generate primary content, retweet material, or promote newly created accounts of suspended users. The range of U.S.-based sympathizers who are involved with or promoting ISIS varies from those who are inspired by ISIS’s message to those become leaders of social media groups.

echo chamber

The GW report, one of the largest online collections of legal records of ISIS radicalization and recruitment in the United States, is well worth the read.

It reveals the extent to which Obama and others have allowed a steady infiltration of Islamists into the country, a clear and present danger, and national emergency, that is largely unreported and ignored.

Charlie Daniels Tweets That Some College Students ‘Should Spend a Year Picking Cotton’ — and Uproar Follows


Country music legend Charlie Daniels on Tuesday took to Twitter and tossed off a message that got more than a few observers riled up.

“There are some kids in college who should spend a year picking cotton,” Daniels’ tweet read.

Daniels didn’t indicate what may have led him to post such a message — although just a minute prior he sent a tweet about free speech and dissenting opinions:

ch02

Regardless, folks jumped on his cotton-picking post and accused the famous fiddler of racism.

“Hey racist, picking cotton was typically not a paid position,” one reply read.

“[Y]our generation is the reason we are in trouble now,” another said. “Shut up & die already so we can actually have some quiet to fix this.”

“White people have NO history of manually picking cotton in the USA so I feel like he’s being racist,” another responder commented.

“Are you out of your cotton picking mind?” one person reacted. “I hope you can see how racist your tweet is.”More Evidence

But not everyone took Daniels’ tweet that way.

“I think he’s sayin they need to learn what it’s like to have to actually do hard work that’s all,” one observer said.

“Johnny Cash never picked cotton, but his sister did & his mother did & his daddy died young…” one user noted.

“To all you who think this was a racist remark…SMH,” read another comment. “I did not take it like that. Spoiled rotten kids benefit rom HARD work!”

Whatever his intentions, Daniels isn’t shy about expressing his opinions. The man who set to music “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” posted a scathing open-letter to Congress last August about what he saw as the legislative body’s unwillingness to face down President Barack Obama over the Iran nuclear deal.

Less than a week ago, Daniels was announced as an inductee into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Here it comes. First jihad slaughter, then sharia enforcement by Western elites crippled with fear. And this is not just in the UK, the Netherlands or Scotland (Glasgow police posted the above tweet). Obama’s Department of Justice tried this very thing, but our organization held a protest that attracted thousands to stand against sharia restriction on our First Amendment rights. Free Speech Definition

In June 2013, we reported at Examiner:

Hundreds gathered at the Manchester-Coffee County Conference Center in Manchester, Tenn., Tuesday night, for an event sponsored by the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee on free speech and social media. But the gathering turned into a protest of what many believe is a threatened crackdown on free speech on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, Twitchy said.

Earlier, U.S. attorney Bill Killian said the meeting would serve as “an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion” and to “inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”

The meeting was the result of a controversial Facebook post by Coffee County Commissioner Barry West, who posted a picture of a man holding a shotgun with the caption, “How to wink at a Muslim.” West apologized for the photo in early May.

Now, it seems that speech critical of jihad and migrants committing crimes are attracting more attention from authorities than the individuals actually committing the crimes.

Geller wonders: “It is unclear as to whether or not sharing this article would constitute an ‘unnecessary’ post. But it may be worth finding out.”

Liberals Love Blacklists as Long as Conservatives are the Ones Being Blacklisted


waving flagWritten by Gary DeMar, Mar 1, 2016

URL of the original posting site: http://constitution.com/liberals-love-blacklists-as-long-as-conservatives-are-the-ones-being-blacklisted

You may have heard the news report that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg “reprimanded employees for replacing ‘Black Lives Matter’ slogans with ‘All Lives Matter’ on the walls of the company’s headquarters in San Francisco.” “In a private Facebook post obtained by Gizmodo, Zuckerburg told employees that their behaviour was ‘malicious’ and ‘disrespectful,’ and reminded them that there are ‘specific issues affecting the black community in the United States.’” (H/T: Breitbart)

There are always “specific issues,” but not everyone has to agree with what those issues are or how they should be addressed. Facebook was built on the underlying principle that people could speak their mind to the world and not be molested about what they believed. That has changed.

Zuckerburg has joined the liberal blacklist brigade. Articles have been published on how Twitter is “shadowbanning” conservative tweets.

“A disturbing report from Breitbart reveals that Twitter has been ‘shadow banning’ some conservatives sites without telling the owners of the accounts that their tweets are being restricted. 

“According to the report, confirmed to Breitbart by a Twitter official, the company has a ‘white list’ and a ‘black list,’ with white list tweets getting favored search engine treatment while blacklisted accounts are left off timelines and virtually blocked from getting search engine coverage.” (H/T: American Thinker)

There isn’t enough space to describe how an unspoken blacklisting is rampant in today’s universities and the media. Try to get tenure at a major university if you’re a conservative.

In 2008, Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich gave $1,000 to the campaign to pass Proposition 8, the constitutional amendment that banned same-sex marriage in California. To a homosexual, it was like he gave money to Adolf Hitler or the Grand Kleagle of the KKK.

Other supporters faced the wrath of the Gaystapo for their support of Proposition 8.

Peter Vidmar, a double gold-medal winner in the 1984 Olympics in gymnastics, was forced to resign as Chairman of USA Gymnastics. Why? Because in 2008 he donated $2000 to support Proposition 8. The homosexual defamation machine went into action and put pressure on the Olympic Committee and its sponsors.

A letter writer to the San Francisco Chronicle who supported Prop 8 was intimidated when Internet search engines were used “to find the letter writer’s small business, his Web site (which included the names of his children and dog), his phone number and his clients. And they posted that information in the ‘Comments’ section of SFGate.com — urging, in ugly language, retribution against the author’s business and its identified clients.”

The blacklist lives and thrives in the hands of liberals!

During the 1940s and 1950s, Hollywood producers, directors, and actors were being scrutinized for their political beliefs. The period of “red hysteria” put people’s jobs in the film industry in jeopardy. “Artists were barred from work on the basis of their alleged membership in or sympathy toward the American Communist Party, involvement in liberal or humanitarian political causes that enforcers of the blacklist associated with communism, and/or refusal to assist federal investigations into Communist Party activities; some were blacklisted merely because their names came up at the wrong place and time.”

Writers and directors testified before Congress and the specially called House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC). When a group of 10 writers and directors — the so-called Hollywood Ten — refused to testify before the committee, a Hollywood “blacklist” was instituted on November 25, 1947. On June 22, 1950, the journal Counterattack published Red Channels, a report on the “Communist Influence in Radio and Television.” The booklet identified 151 actors, writers, musicians, broadcast journalists, and others it believed were using the entertainment industry to spread Communist ideals. Even before publication, some on the list were already being denied employment because of their political beliefs. Beginning in May of 1947, the Counterattack newsletter published weekly information on the political views of entertainment figures.

On November 25, 1947 (the day after the House of Representatives approved citations of contempt for the Hollywood Ten because of their refusal to testify), Eric Johnston, President of the Motion Picture Association of America, issued a two-page press release that represented the views of the heads of the major studios. The “Waldorf Statement,” as it came to be called, announced the firing of the Hollywood Ten and stated:

“We will forthwith discharge or suspend without compensation those in our employ, and we will not re-employ any of the 10 until such time as he is acquitted or has purged himself of contempt and declares under oath that he is not a Communist. . . . We will not knowingly employ a Communist or a member of any party or group which advocates the overthrow of the government of the United States.”

Most people today would not recognize the names of the Hollywood Ten. The two-time Oscar-winner Dalton Trumbo (1905–1976) might be the exception since the release of the 2015 film Trumbo.

Read related article: Did You Know that According to the Film ‘Trumbo’ Communism is All about Sharing?

He started as one of the highest paid writers in Hollywood making $4000 per week and worked on a number of noted films: Kitty Foyle (1940), Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo (1944), A Guy Named Joe (1943), Spartacus (1960), and Our Vines Have Tender Grapes (1945), starring Edward G. Robinson whose name was published in the Red Channels booklet, although Robinson was never “officially” blacklisted.

Trumbo’s 1939 anti-war novel, Johnny Got His Gun,1 won an American Book Sellers Award that year.2 It didn’t help Trumbo that the novel was serialized in the Communist periodical The Daily Worker in March 1940 and “became ‘a rally point for the left’ which had opposed involvement in World War II during the period of the Hitler-Stalin pact.”

This and a visit from the FBI3 made Trumbo persona non grata among many in Hollywood, especially since, politics aside, bad publicity could doom a film that was written by a pacifist. How do you sell a movie to a patriotic public when the screenplay was written by a “Commie”? Hollywood was then and is now more about money than ideology. Left-leaning actors, writers, directors, and producers knew this, that’s why the movies they worked on did not espouse their radical ideology.

Let’s not forget that Communists, Trumbo included, had their own blacklists:

“When leftists have been in power, they, too, have eliminated their perceived ideological opponents from earning a living. Trumbo himself admitted to participating in the crushing of authors and works that did not agree with his ideology. Today, left-wingers on college campuses have all but eliminated anyone to their right from consideration for tenure-track employment. Facts like these would be welcome in any deep, rich, complex treatment of the life of a Dalton Trumbo.” (H/T: Front Page Mag)

Trumbo and his Communist friends made their money from the system of government and economies they hoped to replace with a failed political system. Little has changed in our day. Leftists extol the virtues of Che, Fidel, described as “Hollywood’s favorite tyrant,”4 and Hugo Chavez while failing to comprehend that their profession would be taken over and used for propaganda purposes.

Trumbo was still able to make a living while blacklisted since producers got his services at bargain-basement prices as long as his work went uncredited or was acknowledged under an assumed name (e.g., the film The Brave One). In fact, he had more work than he could handle.5

“The film blacklist ended in 1960 when Kirk Douglas, the star and executive producer of Stanley Kubrick’s Spartacus, credited blacklisted writer Dalton Trumbo, of the Hollywood Ten, as the movie’s writer, using Trumbo’s real name. Ever since his blacklisting in 1947, Trumbo had been submitting scripts under the pseudonym Sam Jackson.  President-elect John Kennedy crossed American Legion picket lines to view Spartacus, thereby lending the credibility of the nation’s highest office to the effort to end blacklisting. . . .  Also in 1960, director Otto Preminger publicly announced that Trumbo had written his blockbuster film, Exodus.”6

The Hollywood blacklist era has outraged liberals for more than 60 years, but it hasn’t stopped modern-day liberals from creating their own blacklist of conservatives.

As Donald Trump continues to be the man to beat in the Republican presidential primary race, the liberal media has been having a field day claiming that women hate Trump because of his allegedly sexist remarks. The assumption by many in the liberal world is that Hillary Clinton would easily win a hypothetical match-up with Trump because she will gain most of the women’s vote. The only problem with this thought is that reality is proving to be much different.

Women are supporting Trump, and in much greater numbers than most political analysts would have predicted. Trump has been quick to jump on this to show the world that he isn’t just running a campaign for white males.

Most recently, Trump tweeted a photo of a woman at one of his rallies wearing a special T-shirt:

Hillary fior Prison

The shirt displayed a “Hillary for Prison 2016” slogan that has become popular among conservatives who still remember how her actions led to the deaths of Americans during the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack.

Hillary Clinton — with her family’s baggage — is arguably one of the worst presidential candidates the Democrats have put forward in a long time, and that’s saying something, considering her closest rival is a self-proclaimed socialist who may or may not be certifiably insane.

Hillary has a long track record of breaking the law and getting away with it. It’s about time that someone put a stop to her lawbreaking and threw her in jail where she belongs.H-Cell-600-LI

Maybe Trump will be that person, maybe not — but one thing is certain: There is quite possibly nothing more dangerous than Hillary Clinton as president. We all know the havoc she wrought as secretary of state. Imagine what the world would look like with her in the Oval Office.

Trump takes heat for tweet about black murder rates

Donald Trump is taking heat on social media for a Sunday afternoon tweet of statistics purporting to show that the vast majority of murdered black people in the U.S. are killed by other black people. The tweet was apparently Trump’s response to a Twitter thread about support from white supremacists for the GOP front-runner.

It also comes the day after a Black Lives Matter protester said he was physically and verbally assaulted at a Trump rally.

The image Trump posted includes a list of “USA Crime Statistics ~ 2015.” The two that are highlighted are “Blacks Killed by Police ~~ 1%” and “Blacks Killed by Blacks ~~ 97%.” A drawing of a black man wielding a sideways pistol and wearing army pants, military boots and a bandana and mask accompanies the statistics, which are sourced to the “Crime Statistics Bureau” in San Francisco.

The message immediately took off on the social media platform, with thousands of people retweeting it and liking it within an hour. But many also lashed out angrily against the real estate mogul, calling Trump a racist and questioning the veracity of the stats.

Indeed, an initial search to confirm the numbers couldn’t turn up a “Crime Statistic Bureau” in San Francisco.

stats

However, the percentages do, in some ways, align with Department of Justice (DOJ) findings from several years ago. A DOJ study released in 2011 reported that 93 percent of black homicides were committed by other blacks between 1980 and 2008.Epidemic of racism

In 2014, that figure was roughly 90 percent in 2014, according to the latest DOJ numbers.

The category tweeted out by Trump that doesn’t fit with DOJ statistics is “Whites Killed by Whites,” which Trump’s tweet indicated was 16 percent. According to the department’s 2011 report, 84 percent of white homicides were committed by whites between 1980 and 2008. That number was 82 percent in 2014.

Trump has been roundly bashed during his presidential campaign for disparaging comments made about Mexican immigrants, Syrian refugees, Muslims and black people. The candidate didn’t step away from any of his recent remarks during a Fox News appearance Sunday morning, even suggesting that the Black Lives Matter protester deserved to be assaulted. “Maybe he should have been roughed up because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing,” he said.

“Kill Donald Trump”: Twitter Explodes With Violent Threats

Twitter has exploded in recent days with violent threats targeting Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.

While the left often accuses the right of engaging in vitriolic rhetoric, the number of threats directed against Trump far outweighs those leveled at Hillary Clinton.

A basic Twitter search for the terms “kill Donald Trump” and “murder Donald Trump” reveal a deluge of violent remarks directed at the Republican candidate in the aftermath of last week’s debate.

In comparison, similar threats against Clinton are almost non-existent.

Although the vast majority of the threats are obviously tongue-in-cheek, some of them come across as extremely menacing.

The ones that obviously carry no significant threat would still be denounced by the left if they were made against Bernie Sanders or Hillary.

For the past year, the left has been on a crusade to draw attention to violent and bullying threats made against left-wing activists and feminists, particularly in the context of the #Gamergate scandal. In turn, the media has repeatedly portrayed conservative and anti-social justice warrior Internet users as violent and hateful.

These tweets illustrate how many on the left are just as culpable of sending intimidating messages, if not more so than those on the right.

As we reported back in 2012, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was also on the receiving end of numerous death threats during the campaign.
