SPLC is the Arbiter of Acceptable Speech

Every position the Southern Poverty Law Center disagrees with is considered hate speech yet all these sites rely on them to determine was content is and is not acceptable. Ridiculous!

EXCLUSIVE: FACEBOOK, AMAZON, GOOGLE AND TWITTER ALL WORK WITH LEFT-WING SPLC

Four of the world’s biggest tech platforms have working partnerships with a left-wing nonprofit that has a track record of inaccuracies and routinely labels conservative organizations as “hate groups.”

Facebook, Amazon, Google and Twitter all work with or consult the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in policing their platforms for “hate speech” or “hate groups,” a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found. read more

Another Promise Kept – Iran Deal Scrapped

Imagine that – a president, or frankly any politician save for a select few, who makes

promises on the campaign trail and has the nerve to actually do what he said and keep them. What a novelty! Too bad it actually is. But for president Trump, it seems to be business as usually – make a campaign promise and “make it so Number One.” Another promise kept.

Celebrating Earth Day with the Silliness

Assuming you lead a normal life, you, like me, were probably unaware that Sunday was Earth Day. And like me, you probably don’t give a crap. But many green-warriors sure did. And as a tip of hat to the green-weenies, the Daily Caller has complied a list. 

A list of the:

The Dumbest Things You Could Do To Save The Earth From Global Warming

Environmentalists sometimes propose radical solutions to save the world from global warming — a disaster some say will destroy almost all life on Earth if not dealt with quickly and radically.

In honor of Earth Day on April 22, The Daily Caller News Foundation compiled a list of solutions suggested or tried, largely unsuccessfully, by environmentalists to roll back the effects of global warming. read more

Climate Models are All Wrong

from The Daily Caller:

Princeton Physicist Points Out The Obvious: Climate Models ‘Don’t Work’

Princeton University physicist William Happer is not a fan of models used to predict future manmade global warming, and stars in a new educational video laying out the reasons he believes climate models are faulty.

“And I know they don’t work. They haven’t worked in the past. They don’t work now. And it’s hard to imagine when, if ever, they’ll work in the foreseeable future,” Happer said in a video produced by PragerU. read more

No More Aid to the United Nations

from The Daily Caller:

128 Countries Call Trump’s Jerusalem Decision ‘Null And Void’ As Nikki Haley Threatens To Cut UN Aid

The United Nations General Assembly on Thursday denounced the Trump administration’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, an move that U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said would cause Washington to rethink its financial support of the international organization.

In a 128-9 vote, the UNGA passed a resolution, drafted by Egypt, that expresses “deep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem.”

The resolution calls for Jerusalem’s final status to be negotiated between Israel and the Palestinians. It also affirms that any decisions and actions that “purport to have altered, the character, status or demographic composition of the Holy City of Jerusalem” — a thinly veiled reference to President Donald Trump’s recognition — are “null and void.” read more

Shattering the Global Warming Myth

from the Daily Caller:

STUDY: Satellites Show No Acceleration In Global Warming For 23 Years

 Global warming has not accelerated temperature rise in the bulk atmosphere in more than two decades, according to a new study funded by the Department of Energy.

University of Alabama-Huntsville climate scientists John Christy and Richard McNider found that by removing the climate effects of volcanic eruptions early on in the satellite temperature record it showed virtually no change in the rate of warming since the early 1990s.

“We indicated 23 years ago — in our 1994 Nature article — that climate models had the atmosphere’s sensitivity to CO2 much too high,” Christy said in a statement. “This recent paper bolsters that conclusion.”

Christy and McNider found the rate of warming has been 0.096 degrees Celsius per decade after “the removal of volcanic cooling in the early part of the record,” which “is essentially the same value we determined in 1994 … using only 15 years of data.” read more

Liberal Professor Compared To Hitler

from The Daily Caller:

Dr. Jordan B. Peterson, a Canadian university professor, identifies as a classic British liberal, but his opposition to the progressive shift in higher education has led media outlets, activists, and fellow professors to label him “far right” and compare him to Adolf Hitler.

In a conversation with The Daily Caller, Dr. Peterson discussed how such labels and libelous attacks are used to shut down debate and to “contribute to this increased polarization.”

“We’re in a situation now where if you disagree vociferously with the radical left, then you’re immediately regarded as an exemplar of the opposite extreme,” he told TheDC. “That’s not good, and in my case it’s certainly not true.” read more

My Daily Caller Exclusive – A Book Review

by: the Common Constitutionalist

When I first saw the title of Brion McClanahan’s 9 Presidents Who Screwed Up America: And Four Who Tried To Save It, I thought, okay, here we go with yet another rehashing of the same 20th century progressive presidents we already know. The author won’t be telling me anything I’m not already aware of or haven’t heard a thousand times.

Well, I am man enough to admit that I was wrong – dead wrong. Mr. McClanahan has a hit on his hands, or should. He lays out a case, in plain English, how each of nine presidents “Screwed up” our country. It is a fascinating and factual accounting of presidential usurpation of power. read more

Finally – Common Ground with the Left

by: the Common Constitutionalist

These days it seems all we do is complain about the left and all the left does is complain about us, the right. It’s like the Hatfields and the McCoys.

We fight about everything – climate change, taxes, foreign policy, immigration, etc. Heck, we probably couldn’t agree on the time of day.hatfield

Yet, I finally found something both the left and right agree on – free speech.

Now, I don’t mean all speech, everywhere. No, that wouldn’t be right. To the left, hate speech is where they draw the line on the First Amendment, and of course hate speech is determined only by the left.

I’m talking about free speech on college campuses – more specifically, campus “Free Speech Zones” as they’re called.

So I was more than just a bit surprised when I found myself on the same side as the ACLU and even the Clinton’s cabin boy and Governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe. Oh, and the Huffington Post. Go figure. read more

A Good Day For Conservatives

By: the Common Constitutionalist

Update 0615: Well that Good Day was short-lived. Guess I should have known it wouldn’t last. I thought maybe we could have 24 hrs to bask in the glow of a victory before being dashed on the political rocks. But the squishes saw the “SHUTDOWN” looming, I’m sure it was panic time. Oh well, I’ll leave this up here anyway.

Enjoy the false hope as I did last night.

 

Just look at what transpired Thursday in Congress – the hapless Boehner, trying to rally the troops to no avail in an effort to try to pass a $1.1 trillion bill through next September.

And what of the bill? Well, like magic, 200 additional pages were added to it between Wednesday night and Thursday morning. It’s like those elves that show up at the Cobbler’s shop in the dead of the night.

Who added all these pages to the bill? Gee, I don’t know? I left it right here last night and when I woke up there were 200 additional pages? Huh.

Now it’s obvious the voters, at least the conservatives don’t want anything to do with this train wreck. The Daily Caller reported that the Capital Hill phone lines were jammed on Thursday. Neil Munro wrote that at 3:28 Thursday afternoon, it took a full 7 minutes for someone to pick up the phone whereas it’s normally answered immediately.

“When quizzed by TheDC, the switchboard operator merely said ‘there is high call volume.’ She declined to describe the level of calls. ‘My job is to answer and transfer,’ she said. TheDC called again at 3:50 and a second operator picked up the phone after nine minutes.”

This is obviously a good indication that the electorate is not happy with the GOP. I say that with confidence being that democrat voters don’t usually call in. They riot, loot and burn down their own neighborhoods – but they don’t call. read more
