  • Germany: Full Censorship Now Official

    Gatestone Institute ^ | 10/21/17 | Judith Bergman
    Germany has made no secret of its desire to see its new law copied by the rest of the EU. When employees of social media companies are appointed as the state's private thought police and given the power to shape the form of current political and cultural discourse by deciding who shall be allowed to speak and what to say, and who shall be shut down, free speech becomes nothing more than a fairy tale. Or is that perhaps the point? Perhaps fighting "Islamophobia" is now a higher priority than fighting terrorism? A new German law introducing state censorship...
  • Why Is America's History White Washed?

    Why Is America's History White Washed I am puzzled. I see the agenda erasing evidence of America's flaws as it unfolds but I can't see who gains from that action. I can’t even see what is gained. I also have seen an ongoing effort to create a voting public less informed than previous populace. I see an effort requesting people to accept other peoples’ derangements or delusions. America is an amazing construction and America’s government is an amazing structure but America is not flawless. We constituted America in order to from a more perfect union. The story of how America...
  • Did the New York Times already tell us Trump was ‘wiretapped’?

    The New York Post ^ | March 8, 2017 | John Crudele
    The New York Times has a dilemma. Like every other newspaper, the Times characterized as baseless President Trump’s recent accusation that his campaign was wiretapped. Or, more precisely, the paper said that Trump didn’t provide any evidence of the alleged wiretapping. Fair enough. Trump didn’t give any proof. He just sent out one of his infamous tweets. But does that mean he’s wrong? I’ll get back to that. The reason the Times has a dilemma is that, on Jan. 20, the paper ran a front page story with the headline “Wiretapped Data Used in Inquiry of Trump Aides.” There were...

    I wrote a couple articles about Salon and their attempted justification of pedophilia. They ran posts from a guy named Todd Nickerson that tried to put a happy face on the depravity. Well, guess what? Now those articles have been removed. This is why you should always archive controversial articles from the mainstream media.
  • "What Muslims Really Think" (26% of young US Muslims support suicide bombings against civilians)

    06/16/2016 4:31:42 PM PDT · by Red in Blue PA · 24 replies
    Homeland Security: We can all breathe easier now. The first major poll of the U.S. Muslim community finds that "only" one in four young Muslim Americans would be suicide bombers. The liberal Pew Research Center, which surveyed 1,050 Muslims earlier this year, did its best to put a PC spin on the results. It says its "overall" findings confirm that Muslims in America are "mostly mainstream" compared with their more radical co-religionists in Europe. But as is usually the case with such polls, the devil is in the details. Data buried deep inside Pew's 100-page report put the lie to...
  • State Department admits tampering with video of tough Fox News question

    Now here’s an interesting evolution: When the State Department was first pressed on why a tough question from Fox News correspondent James Rosen was missing from a Dec. 2, 2013, press briefing, a spokeswoman attributed the matter to a “glitch.” “There was a glitch in the State Department video,” said State’s Elizabeth Trudeau at a briefing in mid-May. A different story issued today from the State Department’s podium. Asked about the situation, Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs John Kirby said that an internal probe into the matter had revealed that a “specific request was made to excise” the video. Given...
  • GOP takes on Library of Congress on immigration terminology

    Congress may not be able to reform the immigration system, fix the broken tax code or even pass a budget. But it’s telling the Library of Congress how to label immigrants living in the country illegally. That’s how conservative Republicans are responding to a move by the library to drop the term “illegal alien” in favor of “noncitizens” or “unauthorized immigration” for cataloging and search purposes. The move came in response to a petition from the American Library Association to change immigration-related search terms to make them less judgmental. The library’s move, announced in a three-page statement last month, was...

    Civic leaders, activists, artists and others are celebrating, marching and paying homage Monday to Martin Luther King Jr., marking the 30th anniversary of the federal holiday honoring the slain civil rights leader. In South Carolina, civil rights leaders planned a march to their state capitol as in past years when their rally highlighted calls to remove the Confederate flag from Statehouse grounds. The King Day at the Dome gathering began in 2000 with that call. Last July, organizers got their wish as South Carolina swiftly removed the flag which had flown at the capitol for more than 50 years after...

    Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Wednesday that he wants lawmakers to end the state's practice of commemorating Martin Luther King Jr. and Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee on the same day. Speaking to reporters, Hutchinson said the Legislature should give King his own holiday when they meet for their next regular session next year. Arkansas is one of three states to jointly celebrate the black civil rights icon and the white leader of the Confederate Army on the third Monday in January, and a proposal to end that practice failed repeatedly before a House committee last year. ...

    The New Orleans City Council has voted in favor of removing prominent Confederate monuments along some of its busiest streets - a sweeping move by a city seeking to break with its Confederate past. The council's 6-1 vote on Thursday afternoon allows the city to remove four monuments, including a towering statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee that has stood at the center of a traffic circle for 131 years. The decision came after months of impassioned debate. Now, the city faces possible lawsuits seeking to keep the monuments where they are. ...

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- New Orleans is poised to make a sweeping break with its Confederate past as city leaders decide whether to remove prominent monuments from some of its busiest streets. With support from Mayor Mitch Landrieu, a majority on the City Council appears ready to take down four monuments, including a towering statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. Their ordinance has sparked passionate responses for and against these symbols, and both sides will get one more say at a special council meeting before Thursday's vote.
  • New York Times Scrubs Story on Muslims Celebrating 9/11 (VANITY)i

    Doing research on this topic, I found about a story entitled "In Germany, Muslims grow apart" by Peter Schneider; New York Times; December 4, 2005. It apparently contained the following text: But tolerance of Muslim immigrants began to change in the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001. Parallel to the declarations of "unconditional solidarity" with Americans by the German majority, rallies of another sort were taking place in Neukölln and Kreuzberg. Bottle rockets were set off from building courtyards, a poor man's fireworks: two rockets here, three rockets there. Altogether, hundreds of rockets were shooting skyward in celebration, just as most...

    White House Dossier ^ | 10/21/2014 | Keith Koffler
    The White House Monday left a potentially embarassing phrase out of the official transcript of the president’s remarks, altering what is supposed to be a verbatim rendition and, unless it was a mistake, effectively lying to the American people. The odds, of course, of something harmful being the one thing left accidentally on the cutting room floor or unheard by the stenographer would seem rather low. According to the White House pool report by Politico’s Jennifer Epstein: The White House’s transcript of tonight’s DNC fundraiser omits the president’s reference to unpaid bills being stacked up on his desk at home in Chicago. I included...

    Google has removed over 70,000 Internet links, amid accusations it is trying to promote critical reactions to a EU court ruling by targeting major media outlets. The US firm on Thursday (3 July) said it was getting around 1,000 “right to be forgotten” requests a day. The EU court in Luxembourg in May ruled the search giant should delete links on searches done on the basis of a person’s name if found “inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant.” …

    A tourist from Pittsburgh and his Brooklyn pal were robbed at gunpoint, at 12:30 am today in Central Park, cops said. The victims were on West 64 St. near West Dr. when they were approached by two men. “Don’t move, don’t make noise or I’ll kill you,” one of the suspects said as he pulled out a gun, cops said. “What you got? Don’t move, give me your money,” a second suspect asked.

    WASHINGTON — Visit the website of Michigan-based design firm Teal Media today and you’d never know designers there helped create HealthCare.gov, the troubled online portal for Obamacare. Just a few days ago, the site looked very different. Teal Media’s homepage featured its work on Obamacare prominently, placing a link to the firm’s work on one of the most well-known websites in America front and center. Now that link, as well as the page devoted to Teal’s work on HealthCare.gov, have been removed.

    Even as President Obama and his administration are making a last minute push to encourage enrollment in Obamacare, a quiet change was made on the Healthcare.gov website regarding those who will still not be able to afford coverage after the program kicks in. From at least June 26, 2013 to as recently as September 15, under the topic, "Where can I get free or low-cost care in my community?" the following statement appeared: "If you can't afford any health plan, you can get free or low-cost health and dental care at a nearby community health center." Here is how the...

    Change.gov, the website created by the Obama transition team in 2008, has effectively disappeared sometime over the last month. While the front splash page for Change.gov has linked to the main White House website for years, until recently, you could still continue on to see the materials and agenda laid out by the administration. This was a particularly helpful resource for those looking to compare Obama's performance in office against his vision for reform, laid out in detail on Change.gov. According to the Internet Archive, the last time that content (beyond the splash page) was available was June 8th --...

Ri had been behind then-Prime Minister Choi Young Rim in fourth place on the committee list, which, in its original form, serves as a key indicator of the relative power of officials at the time of Kim Jong IlÂ’s death in December 2011.
