CJack Reviews Zuckerberg’s FACEBOOK Police State Actions against American Conservatives!

—Facebook and the American Left vs. Free Speech in America—

Is it time to break up Facebook before it becomes the surreptitious arm of the DNC’s single-party police state? Is it time to revisit the *Sherman Antitrust Act before “Facebook” become the government’s big gorilla in the chat room? I say yes. In Mark Zuckerberg, the Founder and Chairman of Facebook, the enemies of the American Constitutional Republic have found a ‘deep pockets’ useful fool to monitor and suppress our right to free speech without reservations; a right of free citizens which is under a tsunami of incendiary rhetoric and charlatanry facilitated through social-media technology; a tool much more effective than Stalin’s Pravda and Tass.

But today in America the chat room democratic-socialists are contesting the ‘open borders’ globalists under new totalitarian banners sprung from the bowels of Marx’s communism; yet our overfed and over-entertained nation could care less about the conspiracy to cripple its duly elected President taking place under the bogus investigation by and unconstitutional “special counsel” and his cohorts…while the arch-enemies of free speech in Moscow and Beijing are planning to celebrate the demise of the land of the free and the home of the brave.

The anti-Trump ignoramuses in our vitriolic liberal media prefer to foment hate against our duly elected 45th President than to accept the law as stated in Section 4 of the US Constitution: “The President, Vice President, and all civil (nonmilitary) officers of the United States may be impeached and removed from office if convicted of treason, bribery (payment for favors, breaking the trust of office) a crime, or any other high crimes or misdemeanors (crimes considered less serious than felonies).” Therefore, since Mueller’s investigation has not found–after more than 18 months and the mounting millions of taxpayer dollars— evidence of any egregious misconduct against the President for Congress to impeach him. For the sake of the country, this malodorous unconstitutional investigation, conducted by the mal-intended unconstitutional ‘special counsel’ Robert Mueller should be ended immediately. The duly elected 45th President of the United States must be permitted to govern the nation without further petulant and malicious distractions. I reiterate, thus far Mueller has not brought forth any evidence to indict the President for the House to accuse the President and for the Senate to conduct a trial of the President. By the way, Mueller has no power or authority to subpoena the President of the United States. The President would be ill advised by his lawyers to meet with the malicious, unconstitutional ‘special counsel’ Robert “Muleface” Mueller whose attempt is to entrap him.

Let us inform the undercutting liberal media that the duties of the President include receiving ambassadors and other public ministers (representatives) from foreign countries; and to see that the laws of the United States are carried out faithfully. To invite the President of Russia, the Honorable Vladimir Putin, to a White House visit is pragmatic and wise diplomacy if we are to peacefully coexist with Russia. President Trump’s meeting with President Putin in Helsinki was not to publicly vent against Russia, it was simply the right time and opportunity to construct a new staircase for peace in our troubled world. However, for this to happen, we must crack down on the anarchists and hold the liberal media responsible for its divisive racist and political fabrications. We have had enough. Free speech must always be kept in check by our legal and moral boundaries. The idea that under free speech anything goes has been, historically, a losing societal proposition. The French Revolution offers a clear example of the incivility of a liberated citizenry without legal and moral boundaries. The ‘free’ French ended up exchanging a king for an emperor.

The liberal media has deliberately failed to inform the nation that the President, acting under his Constitutional authority, did not obstruct justice when he fired the corrupt, incompetent, leaker ex-FBI Director James Comey; the President’s subordinate. By the way, this was a firing recommended by the current Deputy USAG Rod Rosenstein who unconstitutionally appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel with a suspiciously broad scope and range to conduct an investigation of the President based on a fabricated “dossier” about a Trump-Russia collusion. The infamous “dossier” was a DNC/Clinton/Obama contingency plan in case their “sure-winner” Hillary Clinton lost the election. And it has all backfired.

So I say it is time, since there is no proof of collusion and/or obstruction of justice, for USAG Jeff Sessions to resign or to withdraw his recusal to fire Rod Rosenstein under the charge that he, Rosenstein, has improperly discharged his responsibilities as Deputy USAG. This should be immediately followed by a recommendation to end the unconstitutional ‘special counsel’ Mueller’s “Trump-Russia” investigation, for the good of the country. Yet, having failed to prove collusion, Mueller is now trying to ‘spin’ the fabricated “dossier” by implying that it was really a Trump-Putin conspiracy that wrecked the old mare’s dream of winning the electoral derby.

The President should have turned the tables on Mueller by directing the DOJ to examine the actions of Hillary Clinton during her tenure as Obama’s Secretary of State; the role of Robert Mueller (as director of the FBI) in the matter of the “Uranium One” transaction with the Russian corporation Rosatom; and concurrently investigate the actions of John Brennan during his tenure as CIA Director; and James Clapper, former Director of US National Intelligence. But the “deep state” made it difficult for the neophyte incoming President to quickly assemble his cabinet.

Make no mistake about the intent of Muleface Mueller and those behind this conspiracy to overthrow the duly elected President of the United States; their ultimate aim is to rewrite the US Constitution and the authority and power of the Executive Office. From all indications the transformation of America Obama promised to his blind jubilant supporters gathered at Chicago’s Grant Park on the night of his election to the White House in 2008, was truly a devilish proposition not only to rewrite the U.S. Constitution (because, as he said, it contained negative rights) but to also remodel the US Congress in the manner of yesteryear’s Soviet Union’s Politburo; or, perhaps into something closer to Red China’s current legislative model—(Note: the “Little Red Book” of the late Chairman Mao was discarded after China’s Senior Vice-Premier Deng Xiaoping visited Singapore for a discussion of free-market economics with Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew).

I therefore urge you to defend our values and ideals by firmly rejecting Barack Obama and his band of anarchists, the globalist George Soros’ open borders madness, and Facebook’s suppression of free speech.
At every opportunity I exhort you to help us energize our Conservative base to win this coming November to retain the majority in the House and Senate; and in 2020 to re-elect President Donald J. Trump to a 2nd Term in the White House. Consider this a patriotic call to arms, by way of the vote, to defend the American Constitution, its laws and legal processes. In God we trust.

*”Sherman Antitrust Act” (federal anti-monopoly and antitrust statute passed by Congress in 1890 under the presidency of Benjamin Harrison as 15 U.S.C., and amended by the Clayton Act in 1914, which prohibits activities that restrict interstate commerce and competition in the marketplace).

Bonus for the readers:

————–To a Bitter Old’ Woman———-
The little old’ woman has gone mad, wild;
Her finger points, she regrets, recriminates;
Alone in her littered castle of empty bottles;
Drunk from the spirits to ease her pain;
She ventures in stupor through the woods;
To curse silent trees, autumn’s falling leaves;
Summer slides into fall; as fall shall to winter;
Cold days of snow an’ ice to sharpen her pain;
For on her way the old woman left many a lame;
Alas, a mad broken old mare at the derby ran;
But a horse from Queens, beat her at the track!

Dedicated to old Hilde Beast, loser…

YouTube Plays Pravda Against Prager University

HELP NEEDED TO CAUSE FREEDOM OF SPEECH  FOR PRAGER U!

For more than two years, YouTube has continued to restrict access to more and more of our videos – simply because they present a conservative point of view. There are currently over 80 PragerU videos that are restricted – more than double the amount of restricted videos since filing our lawsuit against YouTube. Silicon Valley giants like YouTube continue to censor the ideas they don’t agree with. They promote their Leftist ideology and restrict conservative speech.

Help us fight against the censorship of our videos.

From the beginning of this process, we’ve been prepared to pursue our lawsuit against Google/YouTube as far, and for as long as it takes to secure every American’s right to freedom of speech online.

Recently, we officially filed an appeal with the Ninth Circuit Court – giving us another opportunity to argue our case against the tech giant.

We need your support, now more than ever.  

As we continue this important fight – not just for PragerU, but for freedom of speech in America – we need to win in both the court of public opinion, and of course in the courtroom.

We recently launched a public awareness video to bring much-needed attention to the issue.  The video has already been viewed over 10 million times – but we still need to reach more people.

We are continuing to circulate an online petition to help fight back against YouTube.  We already have over 500,000 signatures  — but our goal is to get over 1 million signatures so that YouTube cannot ignore us anymore. With your help we can get there.

Can we count on your support as we fight to end the censorship of our ideas?

The Quality of the Citizens Who Propelled Donald J. Trump to the American Presidency!

Please follow the thinking and the presentation of the following supporter of the gifted America-loving 45th President of these United States!

There IS HOPE, fellow conservatives!

The Female Human Animal IS BORN to be DITSY! She Owns Feelings! Meet Ms. Ocasio-Cortez!

THE EPIC FAILURE OF “CRITICAL THINKING” (UPDATED)

by Steven Hayward  at  PowerLine:

Most every university today prides itself on teaching “critical thinking” skills, but from the evidence, it appears that many universities are failing at both ends of this term—graduates come out with little capacity for thinking at all, let alone thinking “critically.” (Yes, so-called “critical theory” is a special case of this degradation, but deserves separate treatment.)

Case in point is the left’s new It Girl, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who embarrassed herself last week with her extraordinarily ill-informed comments on unemployment (unemployment is low because most people are working two jobs!) and Israel’s conflict with the Palestinians (I’m not really an expert on geopolitics, Occasional-Cortex explained).

Now it is one thing to hear this from a hopped-up left-leaning activist, who exist in great numbers. But as our gimlet-eyed friend who runs Neo-neocon notes, Ocasio-Cortez boasts of graduating fourth in her class from Boston University’s College of Arts and Sciences with a dual degree in  . . . economics and international relations. Let that sink in. Fourth in her class, and she’s a blithering idiot on both economics and international relations. If she’s the fourth-ranked graduate from BU’s College of Arts and Sciences, I’d hate to see who came out on the bottom. If BU has any self-awareness at all, they ought to be asking themselves “What went wrong?”

What can explain this? It is not as though Boston University is Evergreen State College—deliberately dedicated to tendentious ideological instruction. BU is the place that, more than 30 years ago now, was run by John Silber, one of the few sensible college presidents of recent decades. The great Angelo Codevilla only retired from teaching in the international relations department there just a few years ago.  Glenn Loury is on the faculty at BU, though I have a hunch Ocasio-Cortez never took either person for a course.

A perusal of the BU website can turn up a number of plainly leftist faculty in the economics and international relations departments, and that is one obvious explanation. I have a hunch two other factors are at work. First, economics, even on the undergraduate level, has been slowly becoming more mathematically intense in recent years, at the expense of any consideration of economic history or old-fashioned political economy. You will learn good skills from today’s math-heavy economics instruction, but at the loss of direct connection to actual economic issues in the real world. You learn how to make a lot of sophisticated regression models, and how to tease out data sets, but you don’t learn much on how an economy actually works, especially how markets work. The partial exception to this will be the leftist faculty concerned with inequality, labor, and the environment. Hence students will only hear of economic perspectives on current issues from one direction.

Similarly, international relations today often emphasizes theory over historical knowledge and focuses on the hot-button issues of the moment (the BU department website lists several dozen IR courses about the environment and “sustainability”), which would be one reason why Ocasio-Cortez might say she doesn’t have much expertise in the Middle East.

UPDATE: Occasional-Cortex is the gift that keeps on giving. The Daily Caller reports her latest deep thoughts:

Socialist congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seemed to compare Democrats winning elections to the abolition of slavery during a Kansas campaign speech Friday.

“I learned that Kansas was founded over the struggle of the conscience of this nation,” Ocasio-Cortez told the Wichita crowd of over 4,000 people, as reported by Breitbart. “It was when we were deciding who we wanted to be as a country. It was when we were deciding who we wanted to be with the Kansas-Nebraska Act. The people who were … leading this nation said, ‘You decide’ to the people.”

“‘Are we going to be a slave state or are we going to be a free state?’ And it was in 1861 that the people of Kansas decided that we were going to be a free nation,” she continued. “Back then, the people of Kansas were the tipping point for the future of this nation. Today, they are again.”

Where to begin. First, at least she is consistent with the Democratic Party position (at least Stephen Douglas’s position) that the question of slavery should be decided by the people of the Kansas territory alone (“popular sovereignty” he called it), which meant that the national government lacked the constitutional power to prevent the spread of slavery to the territory, even though the constitution gives Congress the power to make regulations for U.S. territories. And the big push among Democrats in the 1850s was to have people move to Kansas to tip the vote in favor of slavery (and by extension the Democratic Party), just as Democrats today want people to move to the United States to tip the vote in favor of Democrats. So, to the point: If the people to Kansas decide to vote for Republicans this year, will that settle for Occasional-Cortex “who we are”?

I guess we should give Occasional-Cortex points for keeping full faith in Democratic Party history.

Note:  Feminist and feminized clans  of all sexes  by Nature and Trial prefer to feel for truths as if feelings  have flavors for the day depending on the mood.   Two plus two does not necessarily equal four if one is in a leftist mood, or is dictated otherwise.   Today’s Democrats, socialists, fascists, and feminists have become quite moody folk, unless they possess total  power over all living.

Seeking Truth is so masculine, Honesty so JudeoChristian, therefore  Curiosity and Problem Solving so Foreign  to the Left.   What goes?

“Owning” power is almost universally masculine…..It seems inevitable, for the human female ABOVE ALL, demands security.   Today, the animal of  her leftist bozom chooses State Socialism, the “man” of her life…..the  more fascistic the more secure she FEELS.    Don’t forget “Crooked Hillary”!

Then,  there are those conservative, God fearing female human animals who discover the more they seek honesty and forthrightness, the closer to God they become!  ghr

 

In America “Liberal” used to include TOLERANCE instead of FASCISM!

WHAT LIBERALS USED TO BE LIKE

by Steven Hayward  at PowerLine:

Yascha Mounk of Harvard University, who numbers among the liberal thinkers overwrought about populism and Donald Trump (Mounk is the author of The People Vs. Democracy: Why Our Freedom Is in Danger and How to Save It), has posted on Twitter a list of “Ten Commandments of Liberal Inquiry” by Bertrand Russell from way back in 1951. Back in those days, intelligent liberalism meant Reinhold Niebuhr, Lionel Trilling, Isaiah Berlin, and even Arthur Schlesinger (at least in his best book, The Vital Center). Hard to find many of their stature and respect on the left today. Instead we get former Enron adviser and Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman.

Anyway, here from ThreadApp are Russell’s Ten Commandments, and count up how many have been completely abandoned today (especially by the climatistas, the sufferers of Trump Derangement Syndrome, campus leftists, and media outlets like The Atlantic and Business Insider):

In 1951, Bertrand Russell took to the @nytimes to argue that the best answer to fanaticism was a calm search for truth. His Ten Commandments of Liberal Inquiry could not be more relevant today.

(Number 6 will blow your mind! 😉 )

1. Do not feel absolutely certain of anything.

2. Do not think it worthwhile to produce belief by concealing evidence, for the evidence is sure to come to light.

3. Never try to discourage thinking, for you are sure to succeed.

4. When you meet with opposition, even if it should be from your husband or your children, endeavor to overcome it by argument and not by authority, for a victory dependent upon authority is unreal and illusory.

5. Have no respect for the authority of others, for there are always contrary authorities to be found.

6. Do not use power to suppress opinions you think pernicious, for if you do the opinions will suppress you.

7. Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.

8. Find more pleasure in intelligent dissent than in passive agreement, for, if you value intelligence as you should, the former implies a deeper agreement than the latter.

9. Be scrupulously truthful, even when truth is inconvenient, for it is more inconvenient when you try to conceal it.

10. Do not feel envious of the happiness of those who live in a fool’s paradise, for only a fool will think that it is happiness.

One of the greatest dangers, as Russell saw it, was that “the man who has any doubts” would be “despised.” But liberalism, he argued, “is not so much a creed and a disposition.” It involves tolerance for what you believe to be others’ errors.

They don’t make liberals like they used to. I’d say most of today’s liberals are 0 for 10 on this list.

Today’s Fascistic Dem Party’s War Against Good and Decent Folk

There’s Much for Conservatives to Like in Brett Kavanaugh

(Both articles sent by Mark Waldeland.)
. . . the Left is already lining up for the cultural war over Kavanaugh, and he is more than prepared to acquit himself against their slings and arrows. His opinions on religious liberties and sexual privacy are well within the realm of mainstream conservativism. Indeed, as I’ve written, when he dissented on the highly novel issue of whether the federal government had an obligation to facilitate the abortion of an illegal-immigrant teenager detained at the border, Kavanaugh emphasized that the government “has permissible interests in favoring fetal life, protecting the best interests of a minor, and refraining from facilitating abortion” and that the Court should uphold “reasonable regulations” even when applying Supreme Court jurisprudence.
 
 

Don’t Worry, Conservatives — Everybody You Like Loves This Guy

Brett Kavanaugh is a fine pick for the Supreme Court.

Yes, Amy Coney Barrett might have triggered a clarifying culture war Ragnarök. Yes, at 53, if confirmed, Kavanaugh will probably be on the Court until “only” the 2040s.

Yes, some Democrats will point to Kavanaugh’s work with Ken Starr and his role in investigating the suicide of Vince Foster and attempt to demonize him with those long-ago tawdry chapters of presidential history. Yes, Kavanaugh is “establishment” in the sense that he worked on the Florida recount and in the Bush White House. Yes, twelve years on the D.C. Circuit Court mean he has a lot of rulings, and modern young progressive activists will attempt to pick out whichever ones seem surprising and paint him as some sort of cross between Torquemada and Pontius Pilate.
