  • Fake News Redux courtesy of Social Media Giant Google

    But all powerful or not, social media giants like Google, Facebook and Twitter--not even with all their significant might--could get Hillary Clinton elected as president, but instead blame Fake News on their abysmal failure Smearing Conservative news sites as the chief purveyors of “Fake News” is a strictly feminist creation. Calling out Conservative publications as Fake News took rise in the immediate aftermath of Hillary Clinton’s stunning, historic and impossible-to-accept loss to Donald Trump. Left in exile by the outcome of Election 2016, the Democrats moved with lightning speed to drop the Fake News smear on the doorstep of Conservative...

    James Damore, the Google employee who was fired last year after his memo about diversity efforts at the company went viral, has filed a lawsuit against his former employer. Damore’s suit, which is joined by another ex-Google engineer named David Gudeman, claims that the company discriminates against conservatives and against white males. From Fox News: “Damore, Gudeman, and other class members were ostracized, belittled, and punished for their heterodox political views, and for the added sin of their birth circumstances of being Caucasians and/or males,” the lawsuit alleged. “This is the essence of discrimination—Google formed opinions about and then...
  • Peter Thiel Planning Launch Of Conservative News Outlet With Mercers Family After Bannon Fiasco

    Billionaire investor Peter Thiel is reportedly considering launching a conservative news outlet backed by the powerful Mercer family, along with a “cast of Fox News celebrities,” according to Michael Wolff book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” and a report from BuzzFeed news. According to Wolff, Fox News chairman Roger Ailes and Peter Thiel were set to discuss the idea of a conservative news outlet last May – however Ailes slipped and fell two days before the meeting, hitting his head and dying before the discussion could occur. Word of Thiel’s potential new venture with the Mercers is...

    We did not include in this ranking websites associated with TV networks or radio shows (Fox News, Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, etc.) and we also excluded websites related to daily print newspapers (New York Post, Wall Street Journal, Washington Times, etc.) because we wanted to focus solely on web-based content. The big winner this year was, not surprisingly, Drudge Report. According to SimilarWeb, Drudge had 157.06M total visits in November. That dwarfs number two Breitbart, which had 82.75M visits. Beyond raw traffic numbers, Drudge has an outsized influence as a top referral source, with some sites on our list getting 10...

  • Liberal NY Orthodox synagogue to stop announcing LGBT weddings after complaints

    12/13/2017 9:36:01 PM PST · by Olog-hai · 18 replies
    A flagship liberal Orthodox synagogue in New York will stop congratulating same-sex couples on their weddings following a complaint by the Orthodox Union. The Hebrew Institute of Riverdale in the Bronx will no longer announce the weddings of its LGBT members in its newsletters in accordance with a policy dictated by the OU, the largest association of Orthodox synagogues in the United States. The policy was set out this month in response to complaints from other member synagogues, which take a harder line on opposing same-sex marriage. Orthodox Jewish law, or halacha, prohibits same-sex marriage, and Orthodox rabbis are not...

    RUSH: Folks, do not doubt me. They think they have won the House in 2018. They hate Trump and so they think everybody else does. The reasons they hate Trump, they think, are the reasons everybody else hates Trump. They hate Republicans and they think they have succeeded with their buddies in the media in making everybody else hate Republicans. They think the Virginia gubernatorial election is the sign that the country has admitted its mistake and is ready now to get back to normal and elect Democrats to run Washington, D.C. So they have made this assumption. They want...

    I’m so old that I remember when Democrats were all about lower taxes for the working class and could care less about the national debt. Now - of a sudden - they are all concerned about the deficit and don’t want to lower taxes for the middle class? It’s enough to make me ask if I’m totally misremembering; to give me pause and wonder if I’m showing the first signs of dementia. Perhaps I should have my brain examined.The drawing above came to me courtesy of American Digest’s impresario, Gerard Vanderluen. He scours the corners of the innertubes for facts...
  • “Tranny” gets college “Deplorable Radio” DJs yanked from live radio

    Student deejays of the “Deplorable Radio” show at University of Minnesota-Morris were shut down in mid programming this month after one said the word “tranny” on-air – a word the student program manager called a “hate slur” and a violation of FCC rules when barging into the studio with campus police to pull them off the air. The weekly radio show is now facing cancellation; however, school administrators are hard at work searching for a crime to blame for permanently pulling the show off the airwaves. As it turns out, the word “tranny” is not in violation of FCC rules...

    If anyone is still without a place to have dinner next Thursday, or is thinking twice about spending Thanksgiving with liberals, a group is meeting at a nice Upper West Side restaurant (no, that's not an oxymoron), conservatives only. Our tentative times are 2:30 and 7. Freepmail me to let me know if you are interested and which time is better for you.

    The Conservative Voice in the news of the day is fast fading The News of the Day the Mainstream and Social Media are squatting on: Legions of people are being thrown off the Information Highway; the bus is leaving the depot without them. Amid a daily myriad of made-to-order distractions, including the ongoing visceral hatred of the outcome of presidential election 2016; the more than 20-year old sexual harassment claims of loud Entertainment Industry victims; the recent advance of Character Assassination By Allegation, allegations of which are impossible to prove or disprove, Conservatives are steadily losing their voice on the...
  • Roy Moore’s Accuser Worked for Democratic Leaders and Is Actively Campaigning for Moore’s Opponent

    We have just received information that one of the women accusing Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore of soliciting dates from her when she was a teenager and he was in his 30’s is not only a passionate progressive, but she has actually worked for the DNC and is actively campaigning for Moore’s opponent, Doug Jones. Deborah Wesson Gibson, aka Debbie Gibson, was named in the Washington Post article accusing Moore, and social media evidence makes clear that she is a fervent supporter of Jones and Democrats in general, and has even worked for the DNC. Wesson Gibson is a sign...

    LA Times ^ | November 5, 2017 | Steven F. Hayward
    A year into the Trump era, President Trump is living up to his advance billing as a “black swan” event for American politics — disrupting everything he touches. He has opened divisions and brought chaos to both parties, and the turmoil is not going to abate with the midterm election next year, no matter what the result. The GOP may never be the same, while a lurch further to the populist left by Democrats might be a formula for additional electoral disaster. The culture wars have gone thermonuclear, with institutions such as the NFL suddenly embroiled in heightened political controversy....

    The Democratic Party has learned to stop worrying and love “big government” liberalism. The party’s top presidential prospects are advertising their ardor for socialized medicine, free public college, universal child care and paid family leave. Even the party’s moderate senators are now pushing for the same kind of public health insurance option that their centrist predecessors killed in the early Obama years. And the party’s 2018 platform — the consensus agenda that ostensibly unites all Democrats, from Joe Manchin of West Virginia to Bernie Sanders — calls for vigorous antitrust enforcement to prevent mega-corporations from rigging the economy against working...

    Heard the hilarious joke about the vice-president of the United States wanting to hang all gay people? Ah, no, my mistake. It wasn’t a joke – it was just another day in the increasingly regressive states of Trumpinistan. Earlier this week the New Yorker reported that, during a White House discussion on gay rights, Donald Trump glibly said that Mike Pence, who has been accused of supporting conversion therapy for LGBT people, “wants to hang them all”. After some bad press, Trump denied ever saying this.

    After eight years in the wilderness, Republicans have a president who will sign nearly anything they put in front of him. You’d think they’d revel in the opportunity to pass legislation they’d been dreaming of codifying in law, but you’d be wrong. Rather than attempt to implement the ideas on which they’d campaigned and won on, they’re staring blankly like a poker player who over-bet with a pair of twos and had his bluff called. But it’s not just elected Republicans; it’s the entire conservative movement that's dropped the ball. After eight years in exile, where are the innovations,...

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump delivered a speech at the Values Voter Summit on Friday, hosted by the far-right Christian organization The Family Research Council. The convention also featured an exhibit on gay conversion therapy, which seeks to navigate homosexuals and their family members from an anti-gay perspective. The Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX) organization, which was founded in 1998 "to be an alternative to the misinformed gay family groups which insist that parents can only prove their love for their gay child if they support gay rights and affirm their child's self-proclaimed gay identity," distributed a...
