There is a massive campaign unfolding against Facebook. The biggest and most stupid mistake they made was to take sides in politics by banning and canceling anyone with who they disagree. Besides all of that, Facebook has invaded people’s privacy like no other platform. They track everything you do and sell that info to the highest bidder. The number of active users of Facebook (those people who have logged onto the site in the previous month) has reached a historic high of 2.45 billion. To put this in some context, approximately 32% of the global population now uses the social media platform, and the trend line of participation is still going up. About 63% of American adults are on Facebook and 65% of the youth.
Back in 2004, when a 19-year-old Zuckerberg had just started building Facebook, he sent his Harvard friends a series of instant messages in which he marveled at the fact that 4,000 people had volunteered their personal information to his nascent social network. “People just submitted it … I don’t know why … They ‘trust me’ … dumb fucks.”
In 2019, Facebook was ordered to create new layers of oversight for its collection and handling of users’ data by the Federal Trade Commission. The FTC detailed a privacy settlement with the social network. Still, the FTC buckled to the lobbying power of Facebook. The F.T.C.’s commissioners approved the restrictions in a 3-to-2 vote but drew very sharp criticism for not going far enough. The FTC utterly failed to curb the data collection of the world’s largest social media company. Republican and Democratic lawmakers even said that the settlement was a drop in the bucket for Facebook, The FTC failed to limit a core practice that has repeatedly raised privacy questions, and since they have ventured into manipulating elections precisely as the Russians were accused of back in 2016. The people simply being victims of this cancel culture is growing exponentially.
So just how stupid are people? It seems to be very stupid. Back in 2018, the Observer revealed how Cambridge Analytica, a company funded by conservative billionaire Robert Mercer, acquired and exploited the data associated with 50 million Facebook profiles. It appears that while Facebook had been aware of what the Observer described as “unprecedented data harvesting” for two years, it did not notify the affected users.
The police officer who responded to 16-year-old Ma’Kiyah Bryant’s stabbing rampage was an expert marksman with military training. His quick reaction likely saved the life of another young woman who was milliseconds away from being stabbed by the out of control teenager.
His response to the incident should not be controversial given all of the facts as they developed in a few seconds upon his arrival. A neighbor’s CCTV security footage shows another angle of the shooting.
Daily Mail – Neighbor Donavon Brinson “told Fox News Thursday morning he believes Bryant could have fatally stabbed the young woman she was seen lunging at with a knife if the cop hadn’t opened fire in Columbus, Ohio, Tuesday afternoon.
‘He could have either not fired and the young lady in pink could have been stabbed in the neck and brutally or fatally injured and then he could shot [Bryant] and we could have had two [young women] dead – or he could have responded in the way that he did and one young lady lost her life,’ he said.” (link)
News reports show the responding officer is a US Air National Guardsman who received an expert marksman badge with an M4 Carbine.
Unfortunately the entire event continues to be politicized by those who are attempting to divide the nation based on racial grievances. However, there is little doubt amid the mind of the majority that the police officer acted according to his training to save the life of another black woman. It is only from the perspective of the toxic left and their allied media that some other instantaneous action should have been taken.
Racial antagonist LeBron James, a basketball player for the NBA who thinks very highly of himself, attempted to threaten the police officer then retracted the tweet after backlash from the majority voice.
Obviously the massive multinational corporation cannot admit they made a mistake lest they get attacked by the extremists on the far-left; however, all of Coca-Cola’s recent moves since they stupidly put their company into the toxic political mess surrounding election reform legislation -particularly in GA- indicates the company is experiencing destabilizing impacts from the MAGA boycott. DO NOT RELENT !
(Bloomberg Legal) The Coca-Cola Co. announced Wednesday that it is moving legal chief Bradley Gayton to a “strategic consultant” role less than a year after he joined the company and promoting in-house lawyer Monica Howard Douglas to general counsel.
Gayton, who joined Coca-Cola on Sept. 1 and recently announced ambitious new diversity requirements for the company’s outside lawyers, will immediately become a strategic consultant to Coca-Cola chairman and CEO James Quincey.
[…] Coca-Cola spokesman Scott Leith, when asked about the impetus for its general counsel change or whether Gayton’s strategic consulting role is a permanent or temporary position, said the company would have no additional comment. (read more)
It is almost impossible to boycott all of the multinational corporations that are attempting to influence U.S. politics. However, if we focus like a laser on two or three: Delta Airlines, Coca-Cola and Major League Baseball, we can send a massive message that will hit the boardrooms of all others.
Take Coke down a few pegs…. and the rest will fall in line.
These statements should not come as a surprise as they are from the same ideological group, Obama’s crew. The White House and Valerie Jarrett are going back to the playbook where using race as a strategy to divide and conquer is deployed. This is Obama’s Alinsky playbook as deployed repeatedly.
JoeBama says “she was a child”, while JoeBama’s script writer says she was “in a knife fight.” Apparently pretending not to know the well built 16-year-old named Ma’Khia Bryant was shot while in the process of attempting to stab two unarmed teenage girls who were also black.
This is sociopathic level political manipulation by the Obama Chicago crew; the real team behind the administration. Continuing to push the ‘anger games’ in the United States is an ongoing effort of the Obama-minded leftists and communist activist groups who support them.
Obama doesn’t care, he doesn’t even hang out with black people, so long as the larger goals are achieved.
The Chicago crew want to advance radical leftist policies, destroy the American capitalistic system and fundamentally change the United States by diminishing it; while simultaneously keeping all the wealth under the control of an elite group of aligned interests.
Mad Maxine Waters opened up her capricious maw and out came calls for civil unrest and riots if BLM didn’t get the conviction they wanted from the Derek Chauvin trial.
“I know this, we’ve got to stay in the streets,” Waters said to a group of activists. “We are looking for a guilty verdict.”
“If nothing does not happen then we have to not only stay in the streets but we have to fight for justice,” she continued. “I am very hopeful and I hope that we are going to get a verdict that is guilty, guilty, guilty and if we don’t, we cannot go away.”
Waters hoisted herself on her own petard. Mad Max has given the defense in the trial a reason to call for the case to be overturned.
The judge acknowledged the influence of Mad Max’s unhinged rantings have done to the jury members who were not sequestered;
“I’ll give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned.”
Riots do not replace the run of law. Although it seems like they have for the last four years with Soros funded Burn Loot Murder setting Democrat Blue Cities crumbling under arson and constant riots and looting.
This is not America. This is a third world country.
Even in the Democratic party where lunacy is rewarded, a few Democrats are upset with the unhinged Mad Max’s comments although Nancy Pelosi, Democrat Speaker of the house, won’t condemn or censor Waters.
Reminder- the Democrats put Trump through a second impeachment claiming Trump called for “insurrection” and civil violence. When Democrat congresswoman Maxine Waters actually calls for riots and violence….crickets.
Maxine Waters is a national embarrassment to the state of California and our country. She should be stripped her of the chairmanship to the House Financial Services Committee and removed from office, and in a just world, arrested for insurrection and inciting violence.
But don’t bet the farm on that. Nothing will happen unless WE MAKE IT HAPPEN!
Our schools choose their teaching staff by the color of their skin, not the content of their character or the extent of their knowledge, and the advantages that may be gained for the socialist-democrat party.
by Tabitha Korol
In a small, but vibrant, Middle-America community, there exists a public high school with a wall that proudly displays the achievements of past graduates, so that I welcomed reading the community’s magazine that boasted the school’s latest successes, cited as “diversity.” But it soon became clear that the diversity refers to the staff’s complexions and sexual dispositions. We search in vain for references to interests served, classes offered, careers sought, talents developed, and ingenuity encouraged, and we realize that another order of business is afoot.
America’s first schools, established in the 17th century in the thirteen original colonies, were designed to educate for literacy and arithmetic, but students under 17 were soon studying Greek, Latin, geometry, ancient history, logic, ethics and rhetoric. Law and medicine were introduced in the 18th century, followed by mathematics and philosophy. The academies provided a rigorous curriculum that stressed writing, penmanship, arithmetic and languages, and the children were successful; they and their progeny contributed to the makings of a magnificent republic. Horace Mann established that education should be free, universal, and non-sectarian, to aim for social efficiency, civic virtue, and character. Graduates were to be disciplined, judicious citizens, continuing the American desire for liberty, inalienable individual rights, and sovereignty. We were successful like no other but, sadly, we appear to have lost our way.
Diversity in America once meant that one could follow one’s dream by studying and working in any field of endeavor, unhindered by local or federal government. Beyond the basics defined by parents and state, the student was encouraged to forge ahead in any field, even in apprenticeship, with diligence and determination. Individuality was fortified as the only way one could strive and succeed.
Today’s diversity is designed to destroy that free will, as it identifies the students by race and assigns a victimhood that conditions toward societal conformity, known as Critical Race Theory. It is part of the Cultural Marxism that is already destroying our Judeo-Christian values and ethics so that the youth are immersed in racial differences, sexual immorality, dissension, and rebellion against authority. These include the delinquent youths, sociopaths who rage with Black Lives Matter, destroying property, our historic monuments, our morale and morals, and law and order – and conform to the new culture of revolution.
Consider the new tactics that have resulted in mass obedience – the coronavirus that has people paranoid about masking and social distancing; the politically correct speech that replaces rebellion with uneasy compliance; a belief system that forces impossible genders; the slur of “white privilege” that pardons one group for not succeeding while blaming the other for succeeding, shamed into curbing their efforts. The motive is to demolish western civilization by destroying all that defines America – religion, morality, respect for the other, work ethic, ingenuity, and success – and replacing it with a totalitarian ideology.
By indoctrinating the “of color” students that they cannot succeed because of whites and are consequently entitled to special privileges, the underclass is created. Undermining two-parent households, enacting affirmative action and other accommodations feed into the victim mentality. When they are encouraged to unite, they make more demands, such as acceptance into colleges and universities that would otherwise be closed to them. Once there, of course, these students are confronted with their deficiencies, but not with the causes. Crying foul encourages them to blame the privileged whites (read western civilization), but it also results in the schools’ downgrading the schoolwork. This is equity, reducing standards to mediocrity for all, a planned mediocrity that results in undereducated graduates unqualified for the job market. However, being of one mind, they are now ripe to be dedicated members of the socialist party.
The magazine article details the school’s diversity based on the inconsequential differences among the teaching staff and the children, contrary to Martin Luther King, Jr’s dream, that they would “not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” The interviewees actually compared the 72% white population of ten years ago with today’s 49%, the 15% black students with today’s 20%; the rise in Asians from 8% to 21%, and other groups. Never addressed is how the skin color and variable sexual preferences will help the children function in their adulthood, to form new families, to hold jobs and become responsible, creative, and innovative citizens to contribute to America’s growth.
As the staff were introduced, none spoke of what they hoped to bring to the classroom academically, or how their particular expertise would help the children flourish. No longer based on merit, they were hired on the basis of race, thereby emphasizing cultural sensitivities and preferential treatment. No one addressed the students’ learning skills, their personal growth, their exposure to better literature and music, their future pursuits, and the basics of civic responsibility. Our entire country has been made to focus on race, the main political strategy and indoctrination of the next generation. Lest we forget, racism was the official state ideology of Nazism – the superiority of the Aryan race uber alles. – and the cause of death for many millions of people worldwide.
The staff’s repeated focus on their own irrelevant attributes will affect the students’ judgments. Academia’s leftism sows discontent and creates their social warriors, but cheats them of a bona fide education. Students across America are deficient in reading, math, the arts and sciences, world and American history, our founding documents and, most importantly, critical thinking skills to analyze their world and succeed throughout life. Only 24% of high school seniors have proficient writing skills. Meritocracy and unity are forfeited for resentment, disunity, and obedience to the socialist party.
The director of Equity and Community Engagement duplicitously speaks of equity, which passes as equality to the underinformed. It ignores individual skills and acumen in the name of conventionality and equal outcome. Racism is the key to accomplishing this chicanery, as the children of color are infused with ideas that they’ve been victimized by the entire Caucasian race. Their individualism and freedoms thus stifled, their discomfort level heightened, the stressed children blame their parents for their genetic makeup, the whites for their history, and the school because they are aware of their own illiteracy and undereducation.
When Bill Gates recently declared that math is racist, and that correct sums are unnecessary, he is intentionally forcing the damaging obsession with racism. Although research shows that Asian students generally outperform other students in math, the leftist agenda is to accuse white students of excelling at the expense of children of color, further debilitating the latter. An obliging academia vindicates them, justifies their defeatism, and confirms that they will never succeed, which, in turn, becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy that also fuels their fury. When they are accepted into universities based on their victim credentials (race, heritage, sexuality), but fare poorly because they were unqualified, these groups turn against the better students. Their emotional, intellectual, and social development is reduced to the common denominator – their basic instincts to blame others based on race. These are the triggers used by all totalitarian regimes to inflame the children into violent warriors – Islam, Nazism,
.The head of Human Resources speaks of hiring teachers by their skin tone and comfort level, and his need to hire one more LGBTQ teacher to negate the first teacher’s “lonely feeling.” Is this a school environment or a squirrel’s larder?
Another teacher believes she is qualified to teach social studies by virtue of her skin color. How is that valid? As this teacher is African-American, should her class also be 100% color coded? And how long before the schools completely exclude the whites from the classroom, as the Nazis did the Jews, as this becomes an all-too-possible threat in universities across America?
The Middle School guidance counselor alleges a goal of teaching children to be proud of who they are, but not that we are all humans with the same needs and citizens of the same school, state, and country. This is but more reinforcement to their differences as they are further marginalized and intolerant of others. Colleges are already breeding grounds for radicalism, and the high schools are beginning the indoctrination sooner. In fact, racism, sexuality, pornography – even depravity – have already been introduced to Kindergartens and libraries.
Identity politics should never be underestimated, as it is how the Nazis conducted their hate campaigns and the communists their class struggle. The schools are engaging in social engineering, psychologically manipulating the students so that racism becomes the chief consideration. The victims, a coalition of all the minorities, are to become the dominant culture, always morally right, never challenged, and entitled to sympathy and concessions. The previously dominant culture becomes the new victims, but never to rise again. The insidious bigotry has been sown. Under the careful tutelage of complicit personnel, the students have been frightened, demeaned and demoralized, the ideology ingrained. Marxism survives, waiting in the wings for the throes of our decline.
In the words of George Orwell, “You will be hollow. We shall squeeze you empty, and then we shall fill you with ourselves.”
Parents still have time to fight the schools’ hold over their children or remove them from the schools entirely. Start yesterday, because these ideologies never end well.
While the jury found Derek Chauvin guilty on all charges, he faces a maximum of 75 years in prison but what he would face is probably the hardest time of all. Why? Being a cop, he will be a target in prison and highly likely to be killed. Thus, they will probably keep him in special housing – protective custody. He will probably wish he got the death sentence for death will be a far easier way to do your time.
Most people would have said guilty even if this were not a politically charged case. But the real problem is all the political comments such as Maxime Waters. With politicians commenting before the verdict and even Biden saying he hoped the jury would make the right decision, there is no way he actually had a fair trial under the law and that can keep the case alive for probably the next decade. In the real world, he would be entitled to a new trial. But this is such a national case, it is hard to expect judges to actually rule according to the law. They would run the personal risk of people claiming they are protecting a racist.
This of course has nothing to do with his actual guilt or innocence. It would have been such a simple matter for politicians to just refuse to comment before the verdict. Most politicians reacted AFTER the verdict which is the way it should have been. That would have killed any appeal concerning the denial of a fair trial. Often, in a high-profile case, the trial might be moved to another court outside the area. But this is a national case so that stands little hope of finding an area that would be unfamiliar.
While in any other case, a defendant would probably win a mistrial motion. But in this case, it is hard to see how a judge would rule in Chauvin’s favor for a new trial without risking their own lives and that of their family. It is not a question of being innocent. It is just a question when politicians do not understand they have to keep their mouths shut and let the jury decide the case – that is what the Constitution is all about. While there will be appeals, I doubt he will win a new trial.
Police officers were called to the 3100 block of Legion Lane, north of Chatterton Road, in Columbus, Ohio, just after 4:30 pm for a disturbance call. When police arrived 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant (black female) was in the process of attempting to stab one woman with a knife and then attempting to stab a second woman (see screengrab below). One officer opened fire, Ma’khia Bryant was shot and killed.
Columbus police released the bodycam footage from the shooting.
JoeBama injected the advance racial narrative today giving support and cover for rioters in Minnesota if the outcome of the verdict in the Chauvin trial is not the “right” one according to his own views. Biden stated during media remarks: “I’m praying the verdict is the right verdict, which I think is overwhelming in my view.”
To be clear, the intent of these remarks is to give cover to those who will take to the streets and riot if the jury does not “reach the right verdict”…
This is sociopathic level political manipulation by the Obama Chicago crew; the real team behind the administration. Continuing to push the ‘anger games’ in the United States is an ongoing effort of the Obama-minded leftists and communist activist groups who support them.
FULL ANALYSIS – In 2020 President Trump visited a vandalized St. John’s church in Washington DC. Democrats and national media immediately declared it a stunt, a “photo op”. However, at exactly the same time President Trump was visiting St. Johns’, candidate Joe Biden was visiting Bethel AME church in Wilmington, Delaware, and the media were very careful to avoid labeling this captured moment:
Like the organized riots, looting and subsequent media political constructs, the Biden (actually Obama team) strategy was heavily scripted and not organic. From the moment representative James Clyburn aligned his AME church network with Barack Obama’s Chicago machine there was a strategy at work.
Clyburn uses the old-fashioned racial playbook through the AME church network. The AME network includes Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Meanwhile Obama historically used the modern race-based network: the Nation of Islam and New Black Panther Party. The NoI and NBPP are also allied with DNC Chairman Tom Perez.
Tom Perez was the head of the DOJ Civil Rights Division… which is not coincidental because the election of 2020 is the second time both networks have merged upon, and attempted to activate, the Black Lives Matter crowd. The first time they merged was in Orlando and Miami during the 2012 “Justice for Trayvon” movement.
Black Lives Matter came out of the organization known as “The Dream Defenders”. The defenders were the younger generational version of the civil rights AME network.
In 2012/2013 President Obama and Tom Perez were able to blend the Dream Defenders into an alignment with Louis Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam, and the New Black Panther Party.
As an outcome of a more bitter ideology, the Dream Defenders became more antagonistic and combative when they launched the rebranded version, ‘Black Lives Matter’.
The newly blended Black Lives Matter network had their first heavy visibility with the “Justice for Mike Brown” movement that destroyed Ferguson, Missouri.
After the Mike Brown pretense collapsed the BLM group moved to Baltimore to exploit the false narrative that surrounded the death of Freddie Gray.
Baltimore was then set ablaze with the leadership of Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake who famously said it was important to give the riot crowd “space to destroy.”
While BLM was fulfilling their role as on-the-street activists, the parents of Trayvon Martin and Mike Brown were making financial trips through the AME church network.
AME holds the faith-based role while advancing an older and more traditional generational approach toward racial grievance. The BLM message targets a younger generation with guilt and influence to break windows and riots on behalf of ‘social justice’. To achieve their common goal each group agreed to, or should I say: ‘learned to‘, stay in their lane.
When Jesse Jackson and/or Al Sharpton made independent moves toward the younger BLM activists they were ridiculed and dispatched. Lessons were learned. The older race hustlers now stick to the AME crowd where there is a generational respect.
♦SLIGHTED – Despite Barack Obama leaning heavily on the AME network in ’07/’08, by the time you get to ’12/’13, without re-election needs, the AME was less valued. The open preference for Obama toward the BLM team was visible. After reelection in 2012 team Obama shifted toward expanding political influence through the Latino community.
Tom Perez and President Obama sought to assemble another race-based coalition with hopes they could merge Latinos (La Raza) with BLM. However, all of this focus on BLM and the “dreamers” created a problem. Without maintenance of the social network the AME connection to the Obama-controlled DNC started to fray.
Obama’s focus on a youth movement meant Democrats were taking AME support for granted. Worse yet, the older AME activists gained nothing from the modern Obama coalition; ‘gaining nothing’ means financial benefits were diminished.
Without their traditional/customary indulgence fees the national AME leadership network, the racial patriarchs of the democrat party, were not happy.
The financial disappointment shows up in many visible ways throughout 2015 and 2016, but the most visible way was in September 2016 during the all black Baptist Convention in Kansas City Missouri. (see here)
There were 25,000 participants at the KC Convention and Hillary Clinton was scheduled to deliver the keynote address. When it came time for her speech only around ten percent of the general session audience showed up.
It was the first visible sign the AME network leadership was not at all happy with the modern DNC party apparatus as constructed by the new Obama coalition.
The AME network felt slighted and they literally left Clinton with tens-of-thousands of empty seats at the convention. CTH noticed but the media mostly ignored. Those of you around at the time will remember the CTH position after this convention optic was the 2016 election looked solid for Donald Trump.
LESSON LEARNED – Fast forward to just before Super Tuesday 2020. Bernie Sanders has momentum, and is about to become unstoppable. Bernie was a threat to remove DNC leadership power the same way Trump removed RNC party power in 2016.
Party power is money; billions from the big club at stake. Now we see why it was critical for Team Obama (BLM) and the AME team to unite quickly that Super-Tuesday weekend; which is exactly what they did.
While James Clyburn quickly notified the AME network, former President Barack Obama activated his control over the DNC network; and signaled to all other primary candidates they needed to drop out in a designed sequence. The DNC Club made offers they could not refuse. Remember, club rules.
James Clyburn delivered on his end (AME), and Obama delivered on his (DNC/BLM). The rest is history. However, within that history is also a realization that all the alignment means nothing if they don’t successfully activate the network. That unified activation is exactly what is happening now in the U.S.
The BLM team has been reactivated back onto the streets to create the Alinsky inspired chaos. Meanwhile the AME team openly embraced Joe Biden and push heavily for his election. As a result the optics of Joe Biden taking a knee at Bethel AME church were heavily scripted, carefully planned and ironically very appropriate.
The media narrative became “everyone must take a knee.” Note: the DNC network always use three-word phrases: “Hope and Change”, “Take A Knee” etc.
Without the AME network Joe Biden did not stand a chance. For all intents and purposes James Clyburn was/is calling all the shots. Clyburn was also the one to approve of Obama’s choice for Biden’s vice-president, Kamala Harris. The tone-deaf and arrogant lessons from Hillary in 2016 loomed heavy as leverage and as a stark reminder of just how important Clyburn was to Obama’s plan to install Joe Biden. The AME network will not let the DNC forget it.
The message from James Clyburn to DNC Chairman Tom Perez, and by extension to Barack Obama, was really simple: without me you would have been dealing with Bernie Sanders, and the DNC would be on the brink of disassembly… so ‘take a knee.’
Obama doesn’t care so long as the larger goals are achieved. Advance radical leftist policies, destroy the American capitalistic system and fundamentally change the United States by diminishing it, while simultaneously keeping all the wealth under the control of an elite group of aligned interests.
