Free speech and the woke.



 Quote of the Day: Liberty


“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear. “– Eric Blair (writing as George Orwell)
Which is another proof woke culture is anti-liberty and at its heart fascistic. Not only do they not want to hear what they do not want to hear – they want no one else to hear what woke culture does not want to hear. They want you to have the freedom to agree with them and no other freedom of speech, press, or thought. Ironically, Blair’s words are written on the side of BBC HQ in London. Whether it did in the past, the BBC doesn’t really mean it today.

Google Is Evil: YouTube Censors Top Trump Media Outlet Right Side Broadcasting Network – Removes Live-Stream Capabilities

On November 2, 2016 one week before the national election Right Side Broadcasting Network (RSBN) confirmed they had their live stream disabled by YouTube, after having their live stream camera sabotaged that morning.
In February 2017 Google-YouTube began censoring and preventing views to RSBN. The company’s traffic lost up to 90% of its traffic.

In February 2018 RSBN reporter Margaret Howell joined The Gateway Pundit at the Newseum in Washington DC to discuss how tech giants such as Facebook, Google, and Youtube were taking direct orders from far left groups like Media Matters to censor conservative voices. In multiple examples, Howell discussed how if you are branded as a conservative on social media, these companies will go as far as to remove live videos and videos with no actual political context because they want to prevent any potential message from getting through their gates.

RSBN has suffered immensely during the Trump years. The left wants them silenced.

On Sunday Right Side Broadcasting Network announced that after 300 million+ views of PresidentTrump rallies and four years of following the rules on YouTube, their live-streaming ability was taken away with no explanation.

But, the honesty was refreshing. BTW the AR 15 is not a military weapon...

Mitchell: Beto’s Gun Remarks Make Passing Gun Control Harder

O'Rourke: 'Hell yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47'

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell said that presidential candidate Beto Rourke's (D.) call for a mandatory buyback of AR-15s and AK-47s could make it harder to pass gun control measures.
"What Beto O'Rourke said last night may have actually complicated this measure for the Democrats on the hill who are trying to negotiate a deal," Mitchell said on her show Andrea Mitchell Reports Friday afternoon.
"Now Pat Toomey has tweeted out that what Beto had said has actually made it more difficult to get consensus on the background checks," she continued.
During the third Democratic debate, O'Rourke emphatically called for a seizure of AR-15s and AK-47s.
"Hell yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47," he said. "We're not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore."
O'Rourke's call drew rapid criticism from legislators. "I agree with @ChrisCoons. This is an awful and extreme idea. Thankfully, there's not enough support in Congress to do it," Sen. Toomey (R., Pa.) wrote on Twitter. "But this rhetoric undermines and hurts bipartisan efforts to actually make progress on commonsense gun safety efforts, like expanding background checks."

Turkey says delivery of second S-400 battery complete...

Turkey's Defense Ministry said on Sunday that the delivery of a second battery of Russian S-400 missile defense systems has been completed as of Sunday, and added that the systems would become active in April 2020.
Ankara and Washington have been at loggerheads over Turkey's purchase of the S-400 systems, which the United States says are not compatible with NATO defenses and poses a threat to Lockheed Martin's F-35 "stealth" fighter jets.
The initial parts of the system were delivered to Ankara in July despite warnings about possible U.S. sanctions over the purchase. The United States has also expelled Turkey from the F-35 program, but Ankara has so far dismissed the warnings.
In a statement, the Defense Ministry said the delivery of the second S-400 battery to Ankara was completed. Efforts to mount the systems and train personnel who will use them were continuing, it said, adding that it planned to activate the S-400s in April 2020.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusglu told an interview with CNN Turk on Saturday that the S-400s would be activated despite repeated U.S. warnings.
"They (U.S. officials) told us 'don't activate them and we can sort this out', but we told them that we didn't buy these systems as a prop," Cavusoglu said, adding that Turkey would be open to buying U.S. Raytheon Co Patriot systems as well.
In an interview on Friday, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told Reuters he will discuss buying U.S. Patriot missiles with President Donald Trump this month in New York, where they are both expected to attend the annual United Nations General Assembly meeting.
The Turkish president said his personal bond with the U.S. leader could overcome the crisis caused by the S-400s.
Though Washington has not yet announced whether it will impose sanction on Ankara, Trump has shown sympathy towards Turkey. He has not fully ruled out sanctions.

On Monday, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the Trump administration was considering imposing sanctions related to Turkey's purchase of the S-400 systems, but no decisions have been made.
The dispute over the S-400 systems is one of several issues straining ties between the United States and Turkey that include the ongoing conflict in Syria, among others.

The astonishing dishonesty of the NY Times and the leftist liars.

Book: Alleged Victim of Brett Kavanaugh Does Not Recall Incident


The alleged victim of a previously unreported claim of sexual misconduct by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh does not actually recall the incident — according to the same authors who published the claim Sunday.

The New York Times‘ Robin Pogrebin & Kate Kelly reported Saturday, in an article that appears in Sunday’s print edition:
We also uncovered a previously unreported story about Mr. Kavanaugh in his freshman year that echoes Ms. [Deborah] Ramirez’s allegation. A classmate, Max Stier, saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student. Mr. Stier, who runs a nonprofit organization in Washington, notified senators and the F.B.I. about this account, but the F.B.I. did not investigate and Mr. Stier has declined to discuss it publicly. (We corroborated the story with two officials who have communicated with Mr. Stier.)
The article was adapted from Pogrebin and Kelly’s new book,  The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation.

However, critics soon noted that the book itself refutes the allegation because the alleged victim reportedly does not even recall the event.
Carrie Severino of the conservative Judicial Crisis Network tweeted:
This is the blockbuster "new allegation" against Kavanaugh. Except it's not actually new. It was shopped to Senate Democrats at the time and they apparently found it impossible to nail down, so they ignored it - the same Senators who found the "rape boat" allegations plausible.

Neither do Kelly and Pogrebin nail it down. Not only does the alleged victim not confirm the story, she is reported to be denying it.

Severino also tweeted that Stier “was a member of Bill Clinton’s defense team back during the Lewinsky investigation.”
Mollie Hemingway, senior editor at The Federalist, added:
NYT Reporters’ essay about a supposed second Yale incident omitted their own book reporting that completely undercuts it: alleged victim denies any memory of it. Journalistically indefensible, though gullible additional reporters are spreading it of course.

I haven’t really complained about lack of corporate media coverage of our exhaustively reported and researched book. In part because it’s a huge bestseller, so it seems wrong. But comparing it to the coverage of this (*shockingly* weak) book is making me want to complain.
The book notes, quietly, that the woman Max Stier named as having been supposedly victimized by Kavanaugh and friends denies any memory of the alleged event. Seems, I don’t know, significant.
