    Tools designed to fight trolls are being used to crack down on dissent "All the army forces inside and outside the barracks, assemble," the Facebook post reads. "Read our commands carefully before the raid." A few lines later. "Don't comment. Don't curse. Just report them." It's military talk, but they're not soldiers. It's a Facebook raid, conducted on July 12th against an independent Vietnamese news site called the Khmer Krom News. Below the post, dozens of comments weigh in with support: "Damn them, let’s finish them off," and "I set up dozens of accounts for this =))" "DON'T COMMENT. DON'T...
  • As WH loses another ‘sanctuary' case, the Left is setting the stage for a HUGE conservative backlash

    The Trump administration lost another “sanctuary city” funding case following a ruling by another Obama-appointed liberal activist federal judge in the 9th Circuit on Wednesday, bringing the total number of cases lost to 10. But before the Left celebrates, they should take stock of the conservative monster they’re creating. As The Daily Caller reports, the case involved a lawsuit filed against the administration by — who else? — California, which claimed that the State Department did not have the authority to cut off funds to self-proclaimed sanctuary jurisdictions because Congress never gave the agency that kind of broad discretionary authority:...
  • Diamond and Silk bring CPAC to its feet with fiery address on socialism, Dems in Congress

    Diamond and Silk unloaded a chorus of attacks on socialism, the Green New Deal, anti-Israel politicians and race-baiting hate-crime hoaxes in a fiery tandem address at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Thursday, prompting some of the biggest standing ovations and loudest chants of the day. CPAC, held in National Harbor, Maryland, offered opportunities throughout the day for prominent Republicans -- including Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, the top Republican on the House Oversight Committee, as well as North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows -- to sound off on current events, as Ronald Reagan soundbites occasionally sounded throughout the halls. Then...

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | February 27, 2019 | Jim Hoft
    Facebook has been shutting down traffic to conservative websites since the 2016 election. Conservatives dominated social media in 2016 where they were able to get the truth uncensored. Facebook ended that in 2017 and 2018. The Gateway Pundit spoke with two of the top conservative publishers in America. Floyd Brown is a conservative author, speaker and media commentator. In 2008 Floyd launched Western Journal which quickly became one of the top conservative websites in America. By 2016 Floyd’s organization of Western Journal and other conservative websites under his umbrella had more than a billion page views. Since 2016 Floyd’s organization...

    The latest Gallup Poll on February 22, 2019 has news that ought to be happy for conservatives.  In 43 states, conservatives outnumber liberals and in 6 states — Hawaii, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, and Washington — liberals outnumber conservatives.  California is evenly split.  The title of this article was actually better than most: "Conservatives Greatly Outnumber Liberals in 19 U.S. States." Those who have followed my articles over the last ten years know that every single polling organization — and practically all of these are leftist in tilt — show a conservative majority in America, and it has been the...

    PayPal CEO Dan Schulman admitted during an interview with the Wall Street Journal that PayPal works with the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) when it considers blacklisting conservatives. “I think North Carolina was probably the moment that was the most visible, where we basically said this violates our core value and we need to make a very public stand on it,” claimed Schulman, referencing the time when PayPal pulled out of an investment in North Carolina because the state passed a bill making it mandatory for people to use the bathroom of their biological sex. “Businesses need to be...

    Recent polling has some good news for the conservative cause: More Americans identify as conservative than as liberal. Gallup’s 2018 tracking polls in all 50 U.S. states asked respondents to self-identify as either liberal, conservative or moderate. The aggregated results, which were released Friday, show that more respondents identified as liberal than as conservative in only six states. Gallup previously reported that on a national level, conservatives outnumbered liberals 35 percent to 26 percent in 2018. The states where the number of self-identified liberal residents exceeded the number of conservatives were Hawaii, New Hampshire, New York, Massachusetts, Vermont and Washington....
  • Are conservatives winning the ideological battle? Liberals only outnumber them in SIX states

    A new Gallup survey has found that self-identified liberals only outnumber conservatives in six states, down from nine since the last time the poll was taken. The six states where liberals dominate are not surprising: Massachusetts, Hawaii, Vermont, Washington, New York, and New Hampshire. But one state that many might think is overwhelmingly populated by self-described liberals — California — is actually evenly split with 29 percent of voters identifying as ‘liberal’ and 29 percent as ‘conservative.’ Nationwide, meanwhile, Americans who associate themselves with conservatism outnumber liberals by nine percent, according to the Washington Examiner.

    FULL TITLE: HERE WE GO: Crooked Hillary and Politico Publish Hit List of 200 Influential Conservatives They call “Foreign Actors” Who They Want Removed from Twitter The organized left has already decimated conservative voices on Facebook with many of the top 2016 publishers already put out of business. Facebook cut nearly two billion page views to conservative websites in 2018. This is a bloodbath. Facebook has wiped out conservative content to American users. There is also evidence of far left Google officials debating how to bury conservative content. Google regularly censors conservative content. Far left Google and Facebook also control...

    You could be forgiven if you thought that the media onslaught against conservatives the last few years would have an effect on how most of the country views the right. That media campaign - directed against Donald Trump but also against conservatives - has been unprecedented in its scope and intensity. Conservatives are routinely portrayed as racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-Muslim, and paranoid xenophobes.  But Gallup found some remarkable conservative strength all across the country. Their latest survey shows that liberals outnumber conservatives in only 6 states and that there are 25 states where conservatives are polling above their national average....

    The number of states where liberals outnumber conservatives has dropped more than 30 percent, with just six now in that category: Massachusetts, Hawaii, Vermont, Washington, New York, and New Hampshire. According to the latest Gallup survey, in every other state but California, where conservatives and liberals split 29 percent to 29 percent, conservatives lead. Nationally, those who identify themselves conservative hold a nine-point lead. Before conservatives start to cheer, Gallup said the gap used to be 21 points and a handful of the state numbers fall in the margin of error. But the survey still shows a large swath of...

    On Thursday, members of Grand Canyon University's Young Americans for Freedom chapter were told that they would not be able to host conservative pundit Ben Shapiro on campus. The GCU administrators told the students that Shapiro was just too “cut throat” and divisive, according to YAF. Additionally, they reasoned that a Shapiro appearance would not be good for the school long-term, hoping to maintain its culture of unity, love, and respect.YAF scoffed in response.“By caving to an unseen mob and ignoring the popularity of Shapiro among its student body, Grand Canyon University just played itself and deserves whatever negative response...

    NewsGuard, the news-filtering browser extension recently partnered with Microsoft and run by neoconservatives, Obama-Clinton alumni, and other assorted Trump haters, has advised advertisers to withdraw their business from websites on its blacklist of “unreliable” news websites — a list that includes Breitbart News, The Drudge Report, and the Daily Mail. NewsGuard’s tactic is similar the one used by far-left smear peddlers Sleeping Giants, whose mission is to spread baseless accusations of racism and white supremacy to the advertisers of pro-Trump media outlets in order to put them out of business and silence their voice. Two of the sites on NewsGuard’s...

    The American Left has been trending towards violence for years, mostly under the radar. But using violence to silence political opponents became a semi-official tactic with the formation of Antifa during Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. During his campaign, Trump’s supporters were regularly harassed, attacked, even beaten at venues in mostly Left-leaning states like California, many times while local police stood and watched. But the hate really manifested itself after he defeated — handily, according to the Electoral College — the most corrupt Democrat ever to win her party’s nomination, Hillary Clinton. What began with Leftist protesters encouraging supporters to...

    Crowdpac, a nonpartisan firm dedicated to political data analysis, used federal campaign-contribution records dating to 1980 to estimate where various officials and donors fall on the political spectrum. It scored individual donors as being more liberal or conservative based on which candidates they gave to. Crowdpac CEO and cofounder Steve Hilton told Business Insider this donation data "is the heart of the Crowdpac data model" because its "research shows that campaign contributions are the best predictor of how a candidate will behave in office." Hilton explained that Crowdpac's main goal is to provide people "good objective, nonpartisan information about the...

    Can you imagine how scary it would be to live in a world where your livelihood depended on having the ‘correct’ politics? It’s the sort of thing you might expect of totalitarian regimes – Baathist Iraq under Saddam Hussain; everywhere that has ever tried communism; increasingly, Xi’s panopticon China – but definitely not of any liberal democracy in the 21st century. That dystopian future, though, may be much closer than you think. I only properly appreciated this recently when the podcast I’ve been doing for the last few years was mysteriously dropped by my regular employer, forcing me to seek...

    Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) tore into fellow Republican Rep. Steve King (Iowa) on Friday after King questioned how terms such as “white supremacist” and "white nationalist" were offensive, writing in an op-ed that Republicans with opinions like King's damage the party and the nation as a whole. Scott wrote in an op-ed for The Washington Post that the party often struggles with “civility and fairness,” pointing to King’s comments, which drew swift blowback from conservatives and Democrats. “When people with opinions similar to King’s open their mouths, they damage not only the Republican Party and the conservative brand but also...

    This article posting gives me fear, but it must be said. I have worked for the Federal government and know for a fact that Federal employees, almost all of them, have an intense dislike for conservatives and Trump in particular. They may come after me and probably will in some form or fashion, but someone has to make a sacrifice to get the truth out. If people could only see what it is like on the inside, they would be in shock at the hatred harbored for everyday Americans. Those in supervisory positions absolutely will not tolerate ANYONE challenging their...

    When other demographic factors and overall posting tendencies are factored in, the average person older than 65 shared seven times more false information than those between 18 and 29. The seniors shared more than twice as many fake stories as people between 45 and 64 and more than three times that of people in the 30- to 44-year-old range, said lead study author Andrew Guess, a politics professor at Princeton. The simplest theory for why older people share more false information is a lack of "digital literacy," said study co-author Joshua Tucker, also co-director of the NYU social media political...
