First, here is a quick word about a recent death:
Anthony Bourdain is the celebrity chef who allegedly committed suicide in France on June 8, 2018.
There is more to this case than meets the eye. Bourdain’s girlfriend Asia Argento has now been exposed. The Hollywood Reporter reports:
Asia Argento, the Italian actress who was one of the first to publicly accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, secretly paid off a young male actor accusing her of sexual misconduct in the months after her revelations about the disgraced movie mogul.
According to a report in The New York Times, Argento paid former child actor Jimmy Bennett $380,000. Bennett claims that in 2013, a then 37-year-old Argento assaulted him in a California hotel only two months past his 17th birthday. The age of consent in California is 18.
The Times reports that it has seen the legal documents that lay out Bennett’s assault claims and the payments arranged between his lawyers and Argento’s.
If this is true, then we have more insight into why Bourdain may have committed suicide. Who knows what the details are; perhaps he was murdered. After all his girlfriend had exposed the top mogul in Hollywood. That is very dangerous.
But this is what often happens when you get mixed up with the left-wingers in Hollywood and New York.
Now here is today’s main commentary:
Great! Trump Protests Internet Censorship of Conservatives
For decades liberals have claimed that they can control the media and that anyone who challenges them is seeking to thwart free speech. President Trump has now spoken up about the internet censorship of conservatives. Good.
Unfortunately we allowed the TV networks and newspapers to discriminate for many, many years. But the internet is different.
As long as Facebook, YouTube, Google and Twitter invite the public to use their platforms – and profit from it – then they must not be allowed to discriminate and must be considered public utilities that are subject to government regulation.
It is time to turn the regulation tables onto these internet companies after leftists have used regulation as a weapon against corporate America for decades. And we need our activist president to get involved. He is doing so. The Daily Mail reports:
President Donald Trump has accused social media companies of ‘totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices.’
‘Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won’t let that happen,’ the president tweeted early Saturday morning.
‘They are closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others.
‘Censorship is a very dangerous thing & absolutely impossible to police.
‘If you are weeding out Fake News, there is nothing so Fake as CNN & MSNBC, & yet I do not ask that their sick behavior be removed.
‘I get used to it and watch with a grain of salt, or don’t watch at all.’
The president continued: ‘Too many voices are being destroyed, some good & some bad, and that cannot be allowed to happen.
‘Who is making the choices, because I can already tell you that too many mistakes are being made.
‘Let everybody participate, good & bad, and we will all just have to figure it out!’
Though Trump was not specific, he was likely reacting to the recent decision by tech giants Google, Facebook, Spotify, and Apple to ban the controversial conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.
This is totally awesome as are all aspects of Trump’s presidency. For far too many decades we have been bullied by the left. It is time to act. Trump is the man to lead us.
Of course we are all supposed to focus on Alex Jones because he is white and American while we are supposed to ignore the evil actors who are not being banned from Facebook like The Muslim Brotherhood’s Official English Website or the violent terror group Antifa International along with hundreds of others.
We are also supposed to forget about mainstream conservatives like Prager University being banned on YouTube (that ban has been lifted after protest).
What is most alarming about these bans is that they come after various groups and individuals have spent years building an audience on Facebook and YouTube and suddenly find themselves out of contact with the audience that they have built.
This is grossly unfair. To understand it, just imagine that a conservative owned a commercial building and suddenly decided to evict all of the Democrat-owned businesses after they had built up their businesses over many years. There would be political armageddon.
Facebook even banned a video by a wonderful lady from California but then reversed the ban under pressure. These reversals show that Facebook is nervous about its politically-driven policies as users abandon Facebook by the millions and as it suffers from widespread condemnation over censorship. The Gateway Pundit reports:
Elizabeth Heng is running for Congress in California’s 16th Congressional District as a Republican.
Elizabeth was raised in Fresno where her family instilled in her a strong work ethic. As a child, she worked at her parent’s Asian grocery store. She attended public school and was class Valedictorian at Sunnyside High School in Fresno, California.
Last week Elizabeth Heng posted a video describing scenes of horrific events her parents went through in Cambodia.
Her parents escaped the Communist regime in Cambodia to resettle in California.
Facebook rejected Elizabeth’s video because it was “too shocking.”
Too shocking? No, the video simply showed a few photographs of the communist genocide in Cambodia, which is “shocking” to the American left since it exposes communism for what it really is.
Elizabeth Heng’s video is truly inspiring. Once you get past the photos you see a truly amazing woman, a graduate of both Stanford and Yale and a good Republican who wants to help out her California city which has suffered for many decades under Democrat decay and corruption.
There is an old story about the gangster Al Capone: The police could not nail him for his crimes so they got him for tax evasion. Today perhaps these internet companies could be charged not with ‘discrimination’ per se but with election-law violations for discriminating against conservative candidates. That avenue must be explored. Here is The Gateway Pundit reporting:
A recent study by the leftist website VICE News found that Twitter was censoring top pro-Trump lawmakers.
Twitter is targeting pro-Trump Republican lawmakers Matt Gaetz, Devin Nunes, Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan and John Ratcliffe with the same shadowbanning technique.
Twitter is also censoring prominent pro-Trump accounts including: Mike Cernovich, Jack Posobiec, Paul Joseph Watson, TGP’s Jim Hoft, TGP’s Cassandra Fairbanks, TGP’s Lucian Wintrich, TGP’s Cristina Laila and Laura Loomer among others.
In July Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-CA) announced he was filing a FEC complaint against Twitter after he discovered his account was being throttled by the social media company.
And now this…
Twitter is also censoring the accounts for Republican candidates.
President Trump endorsed “star” Republican John James in the Republican primary for US Senator from Michigan.
But you may not find John James on Twitter because he is being shadow-banned because he is the Republican candidate.
Will the Facebook/YouTube ban on conservatives end up backfiring and riling up conservatives and pro-Trumpers to get out and vote in November?
Nikitas3.com predicts that it will and that president Trump will use these bans as yet another issue on which to turn out his ‘base’ voters from 2016. These voters have been playing a key role in many 2018 primary races, and in Republican victories in ‘special’ US House elections. The Silent Majority is silent no longer.
Along with the collapse of the ‘blue wave’ theory Republicans and conservatives should do fine in November. Nikitas3.com predicts that Republicans will hold majority control of the US House and will pick up as many as 10 seats in the US Senate, easily holding majority control there. Meanwhile The Gateway Pundit reports:
Tech Giants Google and Facebook are purging conservative content from their platforms — They are hiding conservative stories on Google — They are shadow-banning conservative news on Facebook and Twitter.
In February Facebook launched a new algorithm to ensure that conservative news would not spread on the social media platform.
The algorithm change caused President Donald Trump’s engagement on Facebook posts to plummet a whopping 45%.
In contrast, Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) do not appear to have suffered a comparable decline in Facebook engagement.
Top conservative Facebook pages with daily traffic in the millions have seen 75% to 95% drop in traffic since the 2016 election.
Young Cons, Western Journalism, SarahPalin.com, Independent Journal Review, Right Wing News, and several others have seen dramatic loss in traffic.
This is why it is time for president Trump to get engaged in this battle. These internet companies have profited magnificently from the hard work of contributors. Now they are cutting off the conservative ones.
Here is a list of top conservative websites that have been blacklisted and targeted by Google, YouTube and Facebook, as reported by The Gateway Pundit:
Young Cons: Extremely popular conservative news site and received millions of daily readers during the election. The website received nearly all of its traffic from Facebook. Since 2016 Facebook shut down stories to Young Cons. Each algorithm change meant less traffic for the popular website. YoungCons was blacklisted by Facebook and struggles to maintain readers. The site regularly switches domains to save traffic. — Update– YoungCons recently closed shop. Facebook did this.
SarahPalin.com: With over 4 million fans one of the popular conservative pages on Facebook until Facebook blocked all traffic to the website. The page was forced to change the domain to save traffic numbers. Traffic has plummeted.
Right Wing News: Right Wing News grew to an enormous website in the past few years thanks its popularity on Facebook. In July of 2015, in just a week, the Right Wing News Facebook page reached 133 million people. Because conservatives were sharing content they were interested in, Right Wing News (with 3.6 million Facebook likes ) was driving the same amount of web traffic as some of the biggest newspapers in America. Since the 2016 election Facebook blocked traffic to the website. Owner John Hawkins announced he was shutting down the website in January.
Western Journalism: Newsweek reported that the site has grown from receiving 1,000 page views a day in 2009 to more than 1 million during 2016. The website was averaging around 6 million page views a day according to Quantcast during the election. Today it is down to around 500,000 a day. Western Journalism was blacklisted by Facebook.
The Gateway Pundit: TGP was ranked as the 4th most influential conservative publisher during the 2016 election. The site in 2016 received nearly a third of its traffic from Facebook. In March Facebook blocked all trafficfrom recent stories to the website. TGP advertised with Facebook and is another top conservative website blacklisted by the company. TGP is also shadow-banned by Google and frequently attacked and smeared by the liberal media. TGP writers Jim Hoft, Cassandra Fairbanks and Cristina Laila were all shadowbanned by Twitter.
President Trump Facebook page: A recent algorithm change has caused President Donald Trump’s engagement on Facebook posts to plummet a whopping 45%. In contrast, Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) do not appear to have suffered a comparable decline in Facebook engagement, reported Breitbart’s Alum Bokhari.
Independent Journal Review: A massive conservative website based on Facebook audience. The Independent Journal Review (IJR) terminated a number of its employees in March, leaving an unclear future for the millennial-focused conservative website that has recently faced a declining audience. IDF was also shadow-banned and blacklisted.
Breitbart.com: Breitbart was the most influential conservative news source in 2016 with a massive audience. Since the election Breitbart is constantly targeted and smeared by far left operations. Breitbart advertising was targeted by Sleeping Giants and other Soros sites.
InfoWars: Infowars is another dominant conservative site with enormous traffic. After several years of video production and tens of thousands of video YouTube gave Infowars its third strike in March and threatened to shut the YouTube Channel down. In August YouTube, Facebook, Apple and Spotify colluded and eliminated Infowars in a 12 hour stretch.
Rightside Broadcasting: This YouTube Channel had millions of views before the election. Since 2016 YouTube has shadow-banned all of their videos. YouTube has classified its videos of President Trump at a rally as hate speech. YouTube has demonetized hundreds of its videos. YouTube hides its videos. Income for the site is down 95% since the election.
Natural News: A very prominent health website and the world’s top source on natural health. The site receives tens of thousands of readers every day. YouTube wiped out over 1,700 videos covering everything from nutrition, natural medicine, history, science and current events.
Prager Report: PragerU, a conservative educational site, is suing Google and its subsidiary YouTube, accusing the video site of censoring its online videos because of their political leanings. YouTube has banned several of its videos including segments on abortion and Islam. Prager U has a massive conservative audience in the millions. This week Prager U was blocked by Facebook.
Pamela Geller.com: Pamela is well-known for speaking out against radical Islam. ISIS has threatened to behead her several times. During the election PG had over 100,000 daily views from Facebook. Today Facebook has shut down most of her traffic. Her website suffered serious losses in revenue since the election.
Diamond and Silk: Pro-Trump YouTube sensations have a suit against YouTube. The Trump supporters announced in August 2017 that 95% of their videos have been demonetized on YouTube. In the spring of 2018 Diamond and Silk testified on Capitol Hill that Facebook had also censored their content.
Another Vile Trump Hater goes Down
President Trump is having a startling effect on our nation. While his political adversaries were sure that Trump would have been run out of office by now it is in fact his adversaries who are suffering.
Just look at these losers who have fallen on their faces like Rosie O’Donnell or Kathy Griffin or New York governor Andrew Cuomo or Omarosa. How about Stormy Daniels? Whatever happened to her and the “tapes” that she allegedly had of Trump allegedly having sex?
How about all of the people who have lost their jobs over their terrible tweets and behaviors involving Trump Derangement Syndrome. Now we have news that another Trump Hater has gone down. Fox News reports:
Comedian Michelle Wolf’s Netflix show has been canceled just months after it debuted, Fox News confirmed Friday.
In a statement, a representative for the company confirmed “we are not ordering additional episodes of the series.”
Ahead of the show’s launch, the comedian quipped it would bring “the types of jokes my former bosses would tell me we couldn’t do on TV,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Viewership numbers were apparently behind Netflix’s decision to drop (Wolf’s program…)
Wolf has made headlines making vile jokes about president Trump and about White House press secretary Sarah Sanders. She even mocked Sanders’ Southern roots saying: “I’m never really sure what to call Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Is it Sarah Sanders? Is it Sarah Huckabee Sanders? Is it Cousin Huckabee? Is it Auntie Huckabee Sanders? Like, what’s Uncle Tom but for white women who disappoint other white women?”
This is real racist garbage. Sanders attacked Ivanka Trump too. She said, “Ivanka, you’re like vaginal mesh. You were supposed to support women but now you have blood all over you… ‘“
This is disgusting. Even liberals slammed Wolf. So it is even more wonderful that Wolf’s program was canceled. We are all smiling while Wolf is certainly having a nervous breakdown. Imagine how angry she feels.
Let us pray that Wolf disappears from view like Kathy Griffin has, and like Stormy Daniels has disappeared after her 15 minutes of anti-Trump fame.
Meanwhile the PJ Media website reports about the abysmal ‘comedy’ of Wolf:
In a recent video for Netflix, “comedian” Michelle Wolf celebrated abortion… She mocked pro-life activists as anti-life and declared, “God bless abortions!”
But the most offensive thing she said was also the most ridiculous. The Wolf — not exactly in sheep’s clothing — said abortion should be available on the “dollar menu” at McDonald’s.
“Abortion shouldn’t be a luxury… it should be on the dollar menu at McDonald’s,” Wolf said.
Then she mockingly made an order: “Hey, I’d like a large Diet Coke, and can you get this egg out of my McMuffin?”
… Michelle Wolf said that abortion is so important, (that) pro-life people aren’t even real.
“Pro-life is a propaganda term that isn’t real, like ‘healthy ice cream’ and ‘handsome testicles,'” Wolf quipped. “These people are anti-abortion, which means they’re anti-woman.”
… The “comedian” led a small mock marching band under a banner reading “Salute to Abortion,” and then threw confetti in the air.
“Abortion, I salute you!” Wolf declared. “Women, if you need an abortion, get one!” she declared, throwing confetti into the air. “If you want an abortion, get one!” she said, with another thrust of confetti. “If you’re not pregnant but think you eventually might be and think you want to order a future abortion, get one!”
This female is sick but then again this is what passes as normal in the psychotic, anti-Trump ‘entertainment industry’ today.
On the other hand we all know how families flock around a new baby or show off pictures of a beautiful child or grandchild to see a celebration of life in the happiest of ways.
But childless Wolf sees birth as a stain on life, just like Obama once said that women should not be “punished with a baby”.
Punished? Gee, I wonder if Obama’s mother considered aborting him. He sure must be glad that she didn’t.
Illegal Drug Culture Strikes Again and Again
For decades we have seen many of these rock musicians and their hangers-on suffer with depression, alcoholism, drug abuse, early death and suicide. And they are virtually all Trump-hating leftists. Meanwhile the Trump family is prospering and growing. The president has nine grandchildren and more certainly on the way.
Look at this from Fox News about the wife of a rock singer for a heavy-metal band called Korn:
Deven Davis, the wife of Korn’s lead singer, Jonathan Davis, has died, Fox News can confirm. She was 39.
… TMZ reports that in the court papers, Jonathan alleged Deven battled drugs for more than 20 years, and had been to rehab six times. He also claims she “is constantly under the influence of the nitrous oxide, cocaine and Norco.”
Leftists have been telling us since the 1960s to use illegal drugs like marijuana, cocaine, heroin and LSD. They told us that drugs are “fun”.
They are not. Drugs kill. Drugs lead to more drugs and other hazardous behaviors. But that does not stop liberals from seeking to legitimize destructive drugs like they are now doing with marijuana. Other drugs will follow.
President Trump does not drink alcohol or use drugs. He is a good role model.
