Video Podcast – Town Seeks New Name – A Tax Deductible Newspaper – OK is not Ok

Oddly enough, the Canadian town of Asbestos thinks it should change its name. I can’t understand why, by I discuss it anyway.

The Salt Lake Tribune is seeking to become a tax deductible charity. This is NOT a good idea. As we often say, it’s a slippery slope. How can theypossibly maintain a nonpartisan status? Of course, these days, I don’t think that will matter.

When is OK not Ok? When your texting a snowflake. Now texting OK is considered to be aggressive and dismissive. Oh Please! read more

Conservatives – Tow the Line or Risk it All

from Human Events:

The Invisible Shackles of America’s Social Credit System.

China’s social credit system is coming to America, but Big Tech is enforcing it.

The phrase “social credit system” or “social credit score” is relatively unknown to Americans. But in the People’s Republic of China, the communist government has been developing such a system for the last decade, and are looking to roll it out nationwide by 2020.

The Chinese government intends to use social media data, surveillance, and purchasing trends to develop a “score” for its citizens to gauge their “buy-in” to the state. Presumably, the better the score, the more “benefits” citizens are entitled to receive from the government. Conversely, a bad score would severely handicap your life, punishing you for your socially maladaptive behavior, either real or perceived. read more

Ted Cruz Schools Alyssa Milano on Self-Defense

Still Love me some Ted Cruz!

from the Daily Caller:

Alyssa Milano Asks Where The Bible Says Gun Ownership Is A ‘God-Given Right’ — Ted Cruz Shows Her

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz gave actress and political activist Alyssa Milano a quick Bible study and lesson in self-defense Monday.

After Milano asked where the Bible justifies gun ownership, Cruz provided a direct response from the Scriptures while also reaching to the United States Constitution and American history to demonstrate why self-defense is both morally and biblically sound.

Lawrence O’Donnell – No Regard for the Truth

NEWSFLASH: MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell was once a border patrol agent who was known to abuse undocumented

Yeah … I Wish!

immigrants!

This is a bold-faced lie that I just made up, and I’m admitting immediately, which is more than I can say for the claims made by Lawrence O’Donnell himself, regarding President Trump. This, among a million other reasons, is why I could not be employed by leftist “news” outlets like MSNBC.

But see how easy it is? Just make crap up and put it out there, knowing that in most cases, others will provide cover and maybe even advance the lie, via Twitter or other social media venue.

Reporting is dead and buried at these leftist cable outlets. It is all nothing but 24/7, anti-Trump, agenda-driven fabrications. And unless someone calls them on their lies, they will not retract or admit the fabrication.

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell claims President Trump co-signed loans with Russian oligarchs — then admits he has no proof

His own network was unable to confirm his story

UPDATE: at 4:10 p.m. ET Wednesday: MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell has issued a tweet retracting his claim that President Donald Trump co-signed loans with Russian oligarchs. O’Donnell called his own reporting “an error in judgment” and apologized for not going through his network’s “rigorous verification and standards process.”

“I shouldn’t have reported it and I was wrong to discuss it on the air,” he admitted. “I will address the issue on my show tonight. read more

Another Conservative Voice gets Squelched

from the American Spectator:

Facebook Targets Michelle Malkin: Gives Pass to Antifa

And there they go again.

Facebook has censored Michelle Malkin — for protesting censorship. Meanwhile, as noted in this space just last week, Facebook has no problem with the pro-fascist and deliberately misnamed “Antifa” — the pro-fascist group that pretends its use of hooded faces and clubs is somehow “anti-fascist.” Here is the link to AntifaUSA and their masked faces as they appear on Facebook. Take a good look at Antifa’s favored appearance of black ski masks and recall another leftist group — this one that historians describe as the “terrorist arm of the Democratic Party.”

Ahh, the more things change the more they stay the same — from the Klan to Antifa the far-left specializes in hiding its faces to enable its acts of hatred and violence.

And what specifically was Michelle Malkin censored for? Here, courtesy of Breitbart, is the tweet that got her censored: read more

Mayfield Drops the Hammer on Political Correctness

NFL star quarterback Baker Mayfield ripped into the administration at an Ohio high school for dropping valedictorian and salutatorian honors out of sensitivity to students who don’t earn the awards and a concern for the overall “mental health” of students.

“This is so dumb,” said the Cleveland Browns quarterback in a Saturday tweet captioning the news. “You’re telling me competition doesn’t bring out the best in people? If you want something bad enough, work for it.” read more

William Barr testifies

During his Thursday morning press conference once again summarizing the findings of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, when asked by a reporter why Mueller himself was not present, Attorney General William Barr explained that he wasn’t there because the report was written for the AG.

“It’s not [his report], it’s a report he did for me as the attorney general; he is required by the regulation to provide me with a confidential report,” Barr said. “I’m here to discuss my response to the report and my decision, entirely discretionary, to make it public.” read more

Once Again, Social Media Jumps to the Wrong Conclusion

Internet loses it over ambiguous photo of Chicago inmates shoveling in freezing temps — then the sheriff’s office provides full picture

A photo of Chicago-area inmates shoveling snow in freezing temperatures has sparked an outrage on the internet.

Except, naturally, the internet didn’t get the full scope of things, and appearances are not always what they seem.

More Latinos Support the GOP – And There’s Room to Grow Further

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

President Trump’s popularity among voters has remained relatively consistent over the past couple of years. The haters on the left are baffled by this.

They don’t like it, but I think they’ve accepted the loyalty to and adoration of him by his hard-core supporters. It’s the others they don’t get. Why hasn’t he lost these voters?

Speaking for myself and many like me, we haven’t abandoned him because we’ve successfully been able to separate his policies from his antics.

And they don’t like this either, but the left may also be coming to accept this phenomenon.

What they can’t understand, accept or even tolerate is the support he has garnered among some minority groups. And worse is the fact that it has not waned. read more
