Homeland Security Refuses to Review Social Media of People Trying to Immigrate

The other day I warned people about sharing things like “chicken pox parties” on social media where someone who disapproves of their parenting could report them for child abuse. Ironically, Homeland Security doesn’t bother when they are allegedly vetting potential immigrants. From The Hill: “Immigration officials prohibited from looking at visa applicants’ social media.” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson decided against ending a secret U.S. policy that prohibits immigration officials from Read more […]

Contact These Companies Who Donate to Planned Parenthood

Yesterday, the Daily Signal put up a list of the 39 companies who donate to Planned Parenthood. It had been 41, since it was based upon the list that Planned Parenthood displayed on their website. Since the article was published, Ford and Xerox made haste to let us know they are no longer listed donors of Planned Parenthood. This is important because large corporations notoriously do not want to take a moral stand if they do not have to. But the time for that is over. We ought to contact these Read more […]

United Nations Plans to Scrub Internet Free of Hate Speech

Mass global censorship of hate speech is the United Nation’s self-proclaimed goal. After the Islamic attack on the Charlie Hebdo newspaper we saw incredible posturing about freedom of speech. But it was all a ruse. There is no free speech in France. That means their posing over the Charlie Hebdo slaughters was not a statement by the French government in favor of freedom of speech, but an endorsement of the newspaper’s hateful blasphemy and mockery. Telling religious believers that they Read more […]

Liberal Intolerance Proven from Social Media

You’ve noticed that the liberal intolerance is showing up all over the culture. A CEO gets kicked out of his own company for supporting a winning California vote to define marriage as one man and one woman many years earlier. In other words, he held the stated position of Barack Obama at the same time that Obama held it. A state college system ends all Christian campus groups. A newspaper man is fired for disagreeing with homosexual mockery of Christianity. A Christian college loses a city contract Read more […]

So-Called Hate Speech: First They Track It then They Target It

I’ve been pondering what to say about this project for tracking hate speech for two days. There is little more to be said than that it proves yet again that the Federal Government needs to be dismantled, department-by-department, until the only things remaining are those services explicitly enumerated in the Constitution. Here is the story from the Free Beacon: “Feds Creating Database to Track ‘Hate Speech’ on Twitter.” The federal government is spending nearly $1 million to create Read more […]

Independence Day, Thirty Years After: Pentagon Is Big Brother on the Other Side of the Screen

In George Orwell’s 1948 novel, 1984, the concept of “Big Brother” became the universal slogan for the surveillance state. Orwell used very little actual science fiction technology in his novel. But there was one prominent exception: the telescreen. Every home had a device that sent information (or disinformation) and also spied on the dwellers. This permitted the government, through this network, to not only gather intelligence, but to manipulate and control the people. Even though it was Read more […]

Banana Republic in Peoria, IL: Police Sent After Parody Twitter Account

Someone thought Jim Ardis, the mayor of Peoria, IL, deserved to be mocked. So he set up a twitter account, @peoriamayor and made some unsavory posts on it. According to Reason’s Hit & Run blog, According to the Journal Star, the account had all of 50 posts and an equal number of followers. The Twitter profile apparently did not initially indicate that it was a parody account, but added that label in early March. The label was hardly necessary, though, to prevent reader confusion. The Journal Read more […]

The Liarocracy: Snowden Reveals NSA Tactics For Defaming Targets

Why do I distrust our government so much? Because I have experienced, first-hand, their untrustworthiness, and their slanders. One example: When I became involved in volunteer communications to assist families and on-the-scene rescuers following the horrendous 2010 earthquake in Haiti, many loved ones said my reports were the best information they could get anywhere. Informants on the ground paid me the highest compliment when they reported that leaders in Haiti believed I had to be in Port Au Read more […]

The FDA Wants to Monitor the Population’s Compliance with Big Pharma

I don’t think monitoring social media is the same as “spying” unless they violate privacy settings. But before I talk about the recent happenings on the part of the FDA, let me remind you of their commitment to doing espionage for their owners, the corporations they pretend to regulate. From Washington’s Blog (originally posted in 2012). When one of the most respected radiologists in America – the former head of the radiology department at Yale University – attempted to blow the whistle Read more […]

Social Media Envy? Or The Obama Culture With Some Cyberspace Added In?

Karal Markowicz’s editorial, “America’s ugly epidemic of social media envy,” is about something bigger than social media. The envy has been here for a long time. Democrats in politics would be impossible without it. Markowicz writes about one specific example of envy: I’m thinking of Karen Paperno, the owner of Park Slope baby boutique Boing Boing, who raged in Huffington Post piece about the growing affluence of her neighborhood and her difficulty in keeping up with the Joneses. In Read more […]

Liberal ‘Civility’ And ‘Unbiased’ Media In Wake Of Thatcher’s Death

When a Democratic congresswoman gets shot in the head by a liberal and nearly dies, the left tells everybody it’s time to be nice to each other and pretend we’re all schoolchildren in an episode of Barney and Friends. When a conservative and arguably the best (though I’d argue the second best) prime minister in the history of Great Britain actually does die, the knives come out. On hearing the news of the death of Margaret aviThatcher (news which apparently reached the White House slower than Read more […]
