Google’s Call-Out Culture Hearkens back To Mao’s Cultural Revolution

Google Bigots and the High-Tech Lynching of Kay James

Friday, at four o’clock in the afternoon.

Kay Cole James, the president of the Heritage Foundation, steps to the podium of the Pennsylvania Leadership Conference in suburban Harrisburg and gives the startling update.

Ms. James, at a laughing, self-admitted 70 and famously one of the best known, longtime conservative leaders in the country, announces to the PLC crowd (the PLC is the Pennsylvania version of CPAC and was celebrating its 30th anniversary) that this was her first public comment since she had learned only hours earlier that she had been removed as a recent appointee to Google’s Advanced Technology External Advisory Council. The board, on which she would have served without salary, was designed to review artificial intelligence ethics. read more

Fox News and the Right Must not Fold to Leftist Pressure Groups

from the American Spectator:

You Bet Media Matters — and That’s Why Fox News Has to Stand by Its People

Remember when the Left tried to drive Rush Limbaugh off the air seven years ago after he called Sandra Fluke a “slut”? Oh my, how they salivated as they got some advertisers to withdraw ads from Rush’s show! They thought they had Rush off the air. They really did. Carbonite, the computer-data back-up company, made a big splash when they announced they were pulling their ads off Rush. But Rush stuck it out. He stayed strong. And, like the Energizer Bunny, all these years later he still is going and going and going, while history records that Fluke was a fluke. And Carbonite’s stock value nose-dived. read more

The Media’s Latest Anti-Trump Hero

from the American Spectator:

Andrew McCabe: Faux Hero of Our Times

What a tangled web he weaves, when first he practices to deceive — and all this with the mainstream media’s eager connivance.

The progressive mainstream media have declared former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to be a Hero of the Republic for having launched a counterintelligence investigation of President Trump after he fired FBI Director James Comey in May 2017. In interviews on CBS and NBC, McCabe has claimed that FBI officials under his supervision opened the probe because they believed that it was “possible” that Trump had acted on behalf of the Kremlin when he fired Comey.

On NBC’s Today Show, McCabe told Savannah Guthrie that the FBI “had information that led us to believe that there might be a threat to national security — in this case that the president himself might, in fact, be a threat to the United States’ national security.” read more

Transgenderism Intolerant of Feminism

from the American Spectator:

Julia Beck’s voice quavered with emotion and she seemed on the brink of tears as she neared the end of her presentation Monday. “We are losing an entire generation of sisters to this madness,” she said. “That’s why it’s personal. It’s infuriating. It’s devastating. And I have had enough.”

A radical lesbian feminist, Ms. Beck spoke these words at a place she once never imagined she’d be — a seventh-floor auditorium at the conservative Heritage Foundation — as part of a panel discussing “this madness” of transgender ideology.

Jack up the Minimum Wage in NYC

This is the progressive left. Did we ever think they would be satisfied with $15 per hour?

from the American Spectator:

Fifteen-dollar-an-hour minimum wage is so yesterday.

In an op-ed in the New York Times, Ginia Bellafante points to a study showing that a $33-per-hour minimum wage might be needed in New York City, saying that’s the amount necessary — about $69,000 extrapolated out over a year’s income — for a single parent with two school-aged children to live a decent quality of life in the Big Apple.

“In many, many cases, a $15 hourly wage will not bring a family, or even a single person, to an adequate living standard,” she wrote. “That hardly means the fight was worthless; it just means the war is ongoing.” read more

Witless Jim Acosta Makes Trump’s Border Barrier Argument for Him

Boys Scouts Fate was Entirely Predictable

from The American Spectator:

The other day President Trump called Rex Tillerson “dumb as a rock.” That was payback for an interview in which his former Secretary of State called Trump undisciplined and a poor study. Trump had selected Tillerson for the job based in part on the recommendation of Robert Gates, Obama’s Secretary of Defense, according to press reports. Gates and Tillerson knew each other largely from the Boy Scouts, where they both held leadership positions during its transition from a traditional organization to a politically correct one.

As president of the Boy Scouts, Gates had endorsed the adoption of the LGBT agenda, urging the organization to succumb to the demands of its critics. He cast adherence to Christian principles, not their betrayal, as the real threat to the organization’s future. read more
