Podcast – Leftist Mayors Whine About Trump Immigration Policy – and So Does Mark Zuckerberg

Leftist Mayors of America’s Major Cities are upset with president Trump over his order to clamp down on “Sanctuary Cities.” Frankly, the entire left is nuts over it. Ain’t it grand?!

Many Mayors are vowing to fight the feds and some on left are calling th

e possible withholding of federal funds as extortion. Funny, but I don’t ever recall these same lefties mentioning anything about Obama’s many threats to extort States if they didn’t comply with his unlawful wishes.

And Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook has weighed in on Trump’s Immigration Orders – so I guess there’s nothing more to be said – but I’ll say it anyway. Listen to find to out just what nonsense Mr. Facebook spewed. read more

Europe Is Paying for the Mistakes of the Past

by: the Common Constitutionalist

We are well aware of the many ISIS or ISIS inspired attacks throughout Europe. It is interesting that since the rise of ISIS, these attacks appeared directed at the European infidels and not just the long-proclaimed enemy of Islam – Israel.

Not that there are continuing attacks on the Jewish state – there are as there have always been. But recently they have taken a backseat to the mass carnage inflicted upon Europe and the United States by the Islamic State.

But why? Hasn’t it always been the number one cause of Muslims to avenge the oppression of the poor displaced Palestinians and drive the Jews out of Israel and into the sea? Has that not been the clarion call of all Muslims since 1948?

Heck, even individual European nations as well as the EU have, for want of a better term, conspired with Muslim nations and terrorist organizations to take down Israel.

For decades, “Europe had a cushy arrangement – all the world’s jihadists were so fixated on Israel that they were willing to overlook long-standing hatreds against ‘Crusader’ Europe, as long as Europe would help them wage war on Israel.” read more

Lesbian Couple Harassed over Wedding Cake Incident

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Can you believe it? It’s been three years since Aaron & Melissa Klein landed in hot water over the lesbian wedding cake incident.

As you may recall, and how could anyone not, the Kleins, owners of Sweet Cakes bakery in Gresham Oregon, were charged with discriminating against a lesbian couple who wished for them to make a wedding cake.

The Kleins declined on religious grounds – but as we know, religion has no place in liberal Oregon (except Islam, I’m sure). For their impertinence, they were forced to pay $135,000 for “emotional damages” in 2015 and subsequently closing their store.

At the time, many reported it as an innocent lesbian couple who just happened to wander into Sweet Cakes and ask for a wedding cake. To that, the client stated that they don’t serve same-sex couples. This is of course, total crapola! What actually happened was: “When Rachel and Laurel arrived at sweet cakes they met with Aaron, who asked: ‘What are the names of the bride and groom?’ ‘It’s two brides,’ Rachel told him cheerfully. ‘I think we may have wasted your time,’ said Klein. ‘We don’t do same-sex weddings.’”

The now “legally” married lesbian couple did not just wander in. They targeted the Kleins, knowing, or at least suspecting, what the outcome would be, due to the Klein’s Christian beliefs. read more

My WND Weekly Exclusive

Keep the Government Away from Facebook

So Facebook is liberal, or at least has a left bias. What a revelation. What high-tech type company isn’t. I mean, really – Google, Apple, Microsoft – they’re all run by libs, and most who work for them also tilt left. These companies all have this in common. How is it a surprise to anyone?

They have another thing in common. They are also private corporations and, as such, should be able to do whatever they wish regarding the content they allow or rank. This is not to say we on the right can’t complain or make a stir when we see bias. read more

Is Just Being a Normal American Not Enough Anymore?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

A few years ago an article was posted entitled, “The Problem With Average Not Being Good Enough.”

The author, Brianna Wiest, attempted to explain the current human condition of many young people. Although she never explicitly stated it regarded young adults, I surmised it must be so being that she spoke of college and other concerns that millennials and generation whatever follows appear to have.

The article was a bit confusing at times but the gist was that unapologetically being yourself and not particularly special is not a bad thing. In other words (I think) one does not have to bow to social pressure or strive to be exceptional just to be noticed – that being “average” is not so bad.

While I disagreed with a lot of her “average is good enough,” assuming I understood the new age speak, her premise, whether she knows it or not, is quite prescient, but not in the way she thinks. read more

I Saw You On Facebook – How Come I Wasn’t Invited?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

These days it seems most Americans have a Twitter or Facebook account – usually both. I don’t wish to offend but Twitter is just plain stupid. It’s merely a platform for most to “pop off” about something or someone. On occasion, it has its uses, like a breaking news event, but mostly its just nonsense. And it invariably gets people into a lot of trouble as it has no filter or send-time delay. Something idiotic pops into someone’s head, they type out their 140 characters and send. Within minutes they regret sending it. The only thing more absurd would be to have live Twitter feeds, where it is sent as you type.

Facebook does have its uses. Many, if not most businesses have some form of Facebook presence they find useful for communicating with customers, launching a new product, etc. Others, with personal accounts find it easier to share with family and friends. If one is smart and disciplined, Facebook is a great tool.

Then there are the not so smart and extremely undisciplined Facebook fanatics, who seem to live out their entire lives online. It’s an obsession to a growing number of people – mostly kids and younger adults, to stay in constant contact with their Facebook “friends.” And of course the more “friends” one has the cooler one must be. And everyone must be cool.

Facebook allows anyone to create an almost entirely false online persona – and more often than not that persona is one of 24/7 fun and frivolity. Rarely, if ever does anyone, particularly younger users, share anything but good news and fun on Facebook. When was the last time anyone shared the fact that they were just foreclosed on or lost their job or their health insurance due to Obamacare (had to get that in)? I would venture to say never. Why would they? The cool set doesn’t suffer those real life events. read more

Another Crash Around the Corner?

The man who predicted the 1987 stock market crash and the recent global economic recession believes the worst crash in decades will take place later in the next 12 months.

Dr Marc Faber, a Swiss investor and the author of the Gloom, Boom & Doom Report, said the cause of the crash would be overvaluing of companies within the internet and biotechnology sectors – thought to include the $400billion valuation of Google, and the $100billion valuation of Facebook.

He also said the market was also beginning to wake up to the idea that the U.S. Federal Reserve is a ‘clueless organization’ – something he says is starting to affect confidence levels in investors. read more

Male and Female Is so Yesterday

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Have you heard the exciting news? No doubt you have, if you’re a regular on Facebook, which these days is pretty likely given that it has 1.23 billion active monthly users worldwide.

 

If not, please allow me to share. The AP reported that, “Facebook has recently revamped its gender settings to allow for options other than just male or female. The feature is designed to help transgender users of the site and now has 50 options including cisgender, transgender and intersex.” 50?

 

Well, that’s terrific, but what the bleep is a cisgender? I looked it up. You won’t believe it. Here you go.

 

It’s not all good news though, for it’s only available to us 150 million American users. Those who are confused in other countries will have to wait a bit longer in gender limbo.

 

Naturally the LGBT community is thrilled; as are the people (may I call them people? I wouldn’t want to offend any interdimensionaltransaliens) at the Human Rights Campaign. The HRC president, Chad Griffin said, “Over the past few years, a person’s Facebook profile truly has become their online identity, and now Facebook has taken a milestone step to allow countless people to more honestly and accurately represent themselves.”

 

Yes Chad; no one has ever inaccurately represented themselves on the inter-web. read more

Nothing Creepy About Facebook Plan

Facebook wants to become your new best friend by knowing everything about you – and it’s going to happen whether you like it not.

From the bottles of beer you drink, to the places you visit on vacation, the social networking site will compile everything there is to know about you (and the billion other people online) – and then make sense of it with the hope of selling better, targeted advertising in your news feed.

The social networking giant has teamed up with New York University to set up a research lab designed to learn about artificial intelligence.

Making sense of it all: Facebook unveiled plans on a partnership with New York University for a new centre for artificial intelligence, aimed at harnessing the huge social network's massive trove of data
