  • Little House on the Praire Books labeled Offensive

    07/16/2018 5:22:25 AM PDT · by KierkegaardMAN · 65 replies
    I was sitting on my daughter’s bed reading Laura Ingalls Wilder, and this and other scenes in “Little House on the Prairie” stopped me cold. What had been, in my gauzy memory, a beautiful and pure story was complicated by passages like this: “Why don’t you like Indians, Ma?” Laura asked, and she caught a drop of molasses with her tongue. “I just don’t like them; and don’t lick your fingers, Laura,” said Ma.

    Friends and family said former UCLA star Tyler Honeycutt was acting erratically before he died Los Angeles, CA – A former NBA player and all-conference college player at UCLA died Saturday from what is suspected to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound after a gunfight with police. Tyler Honeycutt, 27, was identified by friends and his agent as the player who died in the standoff with police. The Russian team that Honeycutt last played for confirmed his death on Twitter. The BBC reported that Honeycutt’s mother called the police because her son was acting erratically. The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD)...
  • Facebook Apologizes After Algorithm Blocks the Declaration of Independence as 'Hate Speech'

    PJ Media ^ | 07/07/2018 | Tyler O' Neil
    The Declaration of Independence was censored on Facebook this week. According to Facebook's algorithm, America's founding document contains "hate speech." Leading up to Independence Day, a newspaper in Texas posted sections of the Declaration of Independence on Facebook. The social media site's algorithm blocked a section of America's founding document, categorizing it as "hate speech." I'm glad to say Facebook later realized its mistake, apologized, and unblocked the post, but this incident reveals the problems with automated "hate speech" algorithms. The Vindicator started posting snippets of the Declaration on June 24, enabling readers to digest the whole thing in time...

    Mexico’s president-elect, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, on Monday thanked President Trump for congratulating him on his election win and said the pair will “reach an understanding," according to The Associated Press. López Obrador, who triumphed in Sunday’s presidential election over the ruling PRI party, is a leftist who has previously criticized Trump. He wrote a book titled "Oye, Trump" ("Listen Up, Trump"), which criticizes the U.S. president's plans to build a wall along the U.S. southern border. Trump tweeted his congratulations to López Obrador on Monday. "I look very much forward to working with [Lopez Obrador]," Trump tweeted on Monday....

Following a backlash, he claimed to have made a mistake on Sunday. Erica Baker, senior engineering manager at Patreon, was perturbed at Dorsey, telling him to either delete his Chick-fil-A tweet "or follow up with how much free advertising...

    On Friday, just days before the election, reports are emerging that the FBI has re-opened the Hillary Clinton email investigation. “The FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation,” a letter from FBI Director James Comey reads. And while Comey didn’t indicate how long the investigation could take, it’s pretty safe to bet investigators won’t come to any kind of decision before November 8th. It may even take months for the FBI to wrap up round two of this. So what happens if Clinton is elected, takes office, and then finds her...

    Former national security adviser Susan Rice's son is an outspoken Trump supporter and serves as the president of Stanford University's College Republicans. Rice served as national security adviser under former President Barack Obama. John David Rice-Cameron told Fox News this week that he distanced himself from his parents' political views and is now a conservative who is determined to "Make Stanford Great Again." “My mother and I have a great relationship, and my mother believes strongly in the free and respectful exchange of ideas,” Rice-Cameron told Fox News. “We disagree on most of the standard Republican-Democrat

    A 47-year-old mystery finally may be resolved. Grand Rapids-based publisher Principia Media announced yesterday it has released a book that allegedly reveals the real identity of “D.B. Cooper,” the infamous skyjacker who in 1971 demanded a $200,000 ransom on board a flight from Portland, Oregon to Seattle’s Sea-Tac airport, before jumping 10,000 feet to his escape. The book, “D.B. Cooper & Me: A Criminal, A Spy, My Best Friend,” is by Carl Laurin, an alleged friend of the skyjacker, and details an investigation into Cooper’s identity. Laurin claims that Cooper was the late "military paratrooper, daredevil and intelligence operative" Walter R. Reca, Principia Media said. Reca,...
  • Maxine Waters explodes on House floor: I resent ‘making America great again’!

    California Congresswoman Maxine Waters doesn’t want to hear any talk about making America great, especially if it’s coming from a straight white man. Waters went off the rails at a recent House debate when Pennsylvania Rep. Mike Kelly had the audacity to suggest the country needed to shift focus from what divides to what unites. “We are trying to make sure we are making America great every day in every way and the best way to do that is to stop stalking about discrimination and start talking about the nation,” Kelly said Tuesday, directing his comments to Waters. “We’re coming...

    Arizona Senator John McCain, who for nearly a year has been diagnosed with brain cancer, has reportedly said that he does not want U.S. President Donald Trump attending his funeral. Instead, McCain would like former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush reading his eulogy, NBC News said on Saturday based on a conversation with an unnamed source close to the 81-year-old politician. "I don't know how much longer I'll be here," McCain separately says in an audio clip shared by NPR ahead of the release of his memoir, The Restless Wave. Trump and McCain, who is a Vietnam war...

    A new poll shows that there was a significant uptick in support for President Trump among black males following tweets from hip-hop mogul Kanye West appearing to back the president. According to a Reuters poll taken April 29, 22 percent of black males approved of the president’s job performance, up from 11 percent one week earlier. Seven percent of the demographic also reported having “mixed feelings” about the president, up from 1.5 percent. Seventy-one percent of the cohort still said they disapproved of Mr. Trump’s performance in office. Support among black females remained relatively steady over that same span, increasing...

    Hillary Clinton on Wednesday claimed that being a “capitalist” hurt her in the 2016 primaries because so many Democrats are socialists. “It’s hard to know, but I mean if you’re in the Iowa caucuses and 41 percent of Democrats are socialists or self-described socialists, and I’m asked ‘Are you a capitalist?’ and I say, ‘Yes, but with appropriate regulation and appropriate accountability.’ You know, that probably gets lost in the ‘Oh my gosh, she’s a capitalist!’” Clinton said during a conversation with Alan Murray, the Chief Content Officer at Time Inc. Clinton barely defeated Sanders in the Iowa caucuses in...

    The target was reportedly an underground missile production facility and depot for surface-to-surface missiles. The explosions following the strike registered as a 2.6 magnitude earthquake, but the weapons used did not cause the quake. Over 18 people were killed and another 60 were wounded. The targets were Syrian army bases being used by Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps and Shi'ite militias with troops from Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Missiles also struck targets in the Al-Malikiyah area, north of the Aleppo’s airport. The underground missile production facility and depot for surface-to-surface missile is funded by Iran and built with the help...

The 2-1 decision Friday by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans is a victory for Republican lawmakers who've spent years defending what critics say is one of the toughest voter ID measures in the nation.
