In an interview with Breitbart News, Kitchen argued that as a private company, Facebook has the right to censor content at will, although he strongly cautioned the social network against a censorious approach.

    A report by Cleveland.com reveals the GOP establishment’s efforts to pour money into Gonzalez’s campaign in order to stop State Rep. Christina Hagan (R-OH), the pro-Trump, 29-year-old millennial mother who has campaigned on supporting the populist “America First” agenda of economic nationalism, immigration reductions, and less foreign interventionism. Gonzalez, most recently, has received: $10,000 from a PAC associated with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) $5,000 from a PAC associated with anti-Trump Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) Additionally, Gonzalez received support and funding from Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH), who has voted consistently in Congress since 2015 to import more cheap, foreign...

    In an interview with Slate staff writer Isaac Chotiner, New York Times campaign reporter and Chasing Hillary author Amy Chozick discussed Hillary Clinton’s 2016 defeat — and complained how the media did not do enough to promote her agenda. Chotiner needled Chozick about a passage in her book that highlighted the public thirst for knowledge of Clinton’s email scandal, saying, “There was an insatiable appetite for email-related stories. I can’t explain it exactly except to compare it to a fever that spread through every newsroom and made us all salivate over the tiniest morsels.” Chotiner asked, “What role do you...

    Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper admitted to congressional investigators that he spoke with CNN about the Trump dossier close to the time the outlet published a scoop, according to a House Intelligence Committee report released Friday. The report revealed that Clapper, during an interview with House Intelligence Committee investigators on July 17, 2017, first “flatly denied” that he had discussed with journalists the dossier or any other intelligence related to the 2016 election. But during that same interview, he later admitted discussing the dossier with CNN’s Jake Tapper and possibly other journalists. “Clapper’s discussion with Tapper took place...

    Alon Altman, a senior software engineer at Google, pressured the company to sabotage President Trump’s Android phone, according to new evidence released via James Damore’s class-action lawsuit against the company. Calling on the tech giant to use the “full economic force [of] Google for good”, Altman also suggested deleting the gmail accounts of Trump, his administration, and his aides for “abuse.” Altman – who is still employed by the tech giant – also called on Google to blacklist “alt-right’ sites on the Google ad network (she falsely included Breitbart News in this category — an assertion refuted by a Harvard...

NRA-ILA quoted NRA past president and USF executive director Marion Hammer saying, “Suddenly, without prior notice, YETI has declined to do business with The NRA Foundation saying they no longer wish to be an NRA vendor, and refused to say why. They will only say they will no longer sell products to The...

    Friday on New York City’s WABC 770 AM’s “Bernie and Sid in the Morning,” NBC’s “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd criticized Fox News for not taking action against host Sean Hannity when he did not disclose he was a client of Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen while commenting on the FBI raids on Cohen’s office. ... Todd then denounced a post on Hannity’s website, “The Utter Hypocrisy of Chuck Todd,” which highlighted Todd’s wife, who was a consultant for Democrats. [SNIP]

    The Republican establishment is weighing a plan with Democrats whereby millions of illegal aliens who are eligible and enrolled in the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program are given amnesty in exchange for a small amount of border security funding, Reuters reports. Trump’s earlier compromise plan — that both the Republican establishment and Democrats rejected — would have only allowed the nearly 800,000 DACA-enrolled illegal aliens to remain in exchange for a major reduction in legal immigration levels to boost Americans’ wages. For example, Trump’s original plan would have ended the process known as “chain migration,” whereby...

This follows his boycott of Fox News’s Laura Ingraham, which resulted in her initially losing advertisers and apologizing to him only to have her viewership jump 20 percent. Now Hogg is targeting BlackRock, Vanguard Group, and a few other mutual fund companies for holding gun manufacturers’ stock in their mutual funds. Hogg tweeted:

    With her cloud of snow-white hair, signature three strand pearls and compelling presence, Barbara Bush's image was what she laughingly called "everybody's grandmother." But the feisty, outspoken Bush was also a tireless advocate for literacy , an author, experienced campaigner and both wife and mother of a U.S. president. Bush, 92, died Tuesday, shortly after her family announced she was in failing health and would decline further medical treatment in favor of “comfort care.” There were no details of her specific health problems. She is survived by her husband of 73 years, former President George H.W. Bush, five children (a...

    While discussing Barbara Bush’s legacy on Tuesday evening, CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Jeffrey Toobin could not resist using the opportunity to slam President Donald Trump. After news broke of Barbara Bush’s passing, Toobin rattled off the “list of adjectives” associated with the former First Lady—“public-service oriented, the honesty, decency”—and asked, “what about the contrast to our current president?” “I mean this family, whatever else you think of the Bushes, were a family that was wall-to-wall decent… good to people… considerate of others,” Toobin said. “And I’m sorry, I just keep thinking of Donald Trump in the White House who has...

    A federal judge in Los Angeles this week struck down the Trump administration’s policy of denying certain Department of Justice law enforcement grants to cities that adopt “sanctuary” policies and refuse to cooperate with immigration enforcement. The Los Angeles Times reports: U.S. District Judge Manuel Real issued a permanent, nationwide ban against a Justice Department policy that gave an edge to obliging police departments applying for a community policing grant program. In doing so, Real dealt a legal setback to the Trump administration in its aggressive campaign to crack down on illegal immigration and to force compliance from law enforcement...

    President Donald Trump reacted to the latest inspector general report released by the FBI on fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. “He LIED! LIED! LIED!” Trump wrote on Twitter on Friday, calling the report a “total disaster” for McCabe. The report detailed that McCabe purposefully misled investigators about leaking details about the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation to a reporter. The president added that McCabe was “totally controlled” by former FBI Director James Comey. “McCabe is Comey!!” he wrote. “No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders added her own condemnation...

The revelation came during Zuckerberg’s appearance in front of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee and Senate Judiciary Committee joint hearing on Facebook. Asked by Sen.

I believe that there may be, but I know we’re working with them.” During the more than five-hour hearing, Democrats sought...

    Diamond & Silk are two massively popular supporters of President Trump who reach their millions-strong audience through Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Like a bunch of fourth-world bozos, Facebook silenced the two by blocking their millions of viewers from seeing their performances (it's actually a form of performance art) in their news feeds, even though presumably, those millions of viewers subscribed to the women's work precisely because they wanted to see it in their news feeds. Then Facebook went really tinpot-creepy when the two uppity sisters had the temerity to ask them why they were silenced. With Olympian vagueness, Facebook told...
