  • No, social-media censorship isn't free speech. It's the end of free speech.

    Why are conservatives so passive about YouTube and Facebook deleting people's accounts? It's actually NOT Facebook's freedom of speech or freedom of association. Your videos, photos or commentary are NOT Facebook's or YouTube's speech. If they were, God only knows how many life sentences Zuckerberg would be serving. They have both legally disavowed by default any responsibility for anything expressed on their services. They are YOUR speech. Facebook and Alphabet LICENSED to use your speech, under whatever terms you agree to. But ownership includes responsibility, and they do not have ownership of them. Deleting an account is like a landlord...

  • Decolonize, Abolish, and Bend a Knee: decoding the resistance

    Frontpage Mag ^ | October 4, 2017 | Dawn Perlmutter
    NFL Football players are bending a knee in protest during the National Anthem for the same reason that cities across the country are abolishing Columbus Day and for the same reason that there are widespread attacks on Confederate monuments, Columbus statues, fallen officer memorials and veterans’ monuments. Symbols of American history and heroism have been methodically transformed into symbols of oppression, genocide and racism, not that the football players understand this. They are just the latest group of useful idiots being manipulated by a long-established resistance movement. Current American resistance movements and their armies of anarchist protesters thoroughly understand the...

    THESE ARE THE VERY FIRST STATEMENTSIt is a privilege to be part of the National Football League. Everyone who is part of the league must refrain from “conduct detrimental to the integrity of and public confidence in” the NFL. This includes owners, coaches, players, other team employees, game officials, and employees of the league office, NFL Films, NFL Network, or any other NFL business. Conduct by anyone in the league that is illegal, violent, dangerous, or irresponsible puts innocent victims at risk, damages the reputation of others in the game, and undercuts public respect and support for the NFL.

    Original title - Dereliction of Duty – The Feather Merchants, Duds and Perfumed Princes that Sold out the US Military to Political Correctness Dereliction of duty is a specific offense under United States Code Title 10, Section 892, Article 92 and applies to all branches of the US military.

    By now, Donald Trump was supposed to be selling herbal Viagra and 1,000-count packages of Trump Ice to reactionary survivalists over Facebook Live; Jeremy Corbyn was supposed to be resigning from the leadership of the (moribund) Labour Party to spend more time with his sewer grates; and Bernie Sanders was supposed to be ruing the fact that, in America, “democratic socialist” is a synonym for “politically irrelevant.” Alas, the pundits supposed wrong. The Republican Party nominated a xenophobic insult-comic — who had campaigned in support of political violence, religious discrimination, and mass-murdering Muslim prisoners of war with bullets dripped in...

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 05-07-17 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    What is the “Harlot City” in the Book of Revelation? Msgr. Charles Pope • May 7, 2017 • Today, it is generally believed that the “Harlot City” referred to in the Book of Revelation is Rome. The opulence and the prominence of the city along with the mention of the seven hills on which it rests, its persecution of Christians, and the use of euphemisms such as “Babylon” are generally presented as evidence that Rome is the wicked city.I propose that the city is actually Jerusalem, not Rome. A more direct indication than the oblique references above occurs in...

    My wife is in a contest where we go on a Tapas Trail and you take a picture of one of the participating restaurants, upload it to the town website and the pictures with the most likes win prizes. It's nothing big but she just feels bad because she doesn't know that many locals. If you have a Facebook account please go to the link and like her photo. She probably still won't win but at least she'll know Freepers support their own. Please Like This Picture
  • Bergoglio Blasphemes Again: Jesus Christ “Made Himself the Devil”!

    Novus Ordo Watch ^ | April 6, 2017 | Novus Ordo Wire
    The blasphemies of Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) are becoming ever more frightful. Just the other day we reported on his joke about the Most Holy Trinity (see here) during a private audience, and today we have another blasphemy to add to the ever-growing list: In his homily of April 4, 2017, Francis said that our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ “made himself the devil” for us!To clarify right from the outset: Yes, he really said it (it’s on the Vatican web site). No, it’s not a mistranslation. And no, it’s not a misunderstanding either.In Italy, this is front-page news already: The April 6 edition of...
  • By All Means, Keep Talking About Russia While Trump Fixes the Country

    Kinvig on Politics ^ | 3-7-17 | Cameron Kinvig
    Since the election, Liberals and the liberal media have been fixated on whether or not President Trump and/or his campaign somehow colluded with Russia to “throw” the election in his favor. They are convinced this must have happened, because they can’t seem to fathom how their anointed candidate could have otherwise lost? It’s been non-stop Russia coverage since November. Who talked to a Russian? Who thought about a Russian? Who listened to Tchaikovsky once, even if it was years ago? Liberals are demanding answers, and they are demanding them now. You’d think Sen. Joseph McCarthy was a closeted Democrat, judging...

    Comparitech ^ | March 7, 2017 | Paul Bischoff
    How the US conducts surveillance and investigation of electronic communication media–particularly the internet–is largely shaped by three pieces of legislation: Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act (USA PATRIOT Act) Uniting and Strengthening America by Fulfilling Rights and Ending Eavesdropping, Dragnet-collection and Online Monitoring Act (USA FREEDOM Act) To give a very brief history, FISA was enacted in 1978–before the proliferation of the internet–and governed both the physical and electronic surveillance of primarily foreign powers and agents. The Patriot Act, enacted shortly after the September 11, 2001...

    Media are positively frothing with stories suggesting a showdown between President Trump and Pope Francis, with conservative Catholics worldwide (but especially in America) as the prize that the two leaders will fight over.Here’s a piece from NBC that pretends that a theological satire by wearied faithful Catholics in Rome of the pope’s increasingly Progressive newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, is an instance of politicized “fake news.” You know, the kind of conservative news and opinion pieces from sources like Breitbart that the European Union, Google, Facebook, and Angela Merkel are scrambling to censor.Next we see a much more ambitious story — a...
  • Does the 9th Circuit really have an 80% reversal rate?

    Hotair ^ | 02/10/2017 | Ed Morrissey
    It’s no secret that the Ninth Circuit has a reputation for giving the Supreme Court fits, but is it true that they have an 80% reversal rate? The answer is yes … and really no. Confused? Many are, and the claim of an 80% reversal rate makes its way into many corners of the media. It’s mainly used to support arguments to break up the Ninth Circuit or find ways to circumvent it in order to prevent almost-certain erroneous outcomes.The Daily Caller is hardly unique, although they did do a better job than most in qualifying the way in...

And our greatest teachers in this process of transformation must be the Indigenous people who have kept their stories and practices of right relationship alive for tens of thousands of years.

Now, I know, I know they're ticking you off. I know they're making you mad. And they're making me mad, too. By the way, greetings, and welcome back. Another exciting excursion into broadcast excellence, where all expectations held by the audience are met and surpassed autonomously.
