Georgetown is obviously hoping this controversy will just fade away over time. They can’t change the fact that the professor wished a horrible death on certain people over race and politics.

Back in 2011, the Obama administration announced that it was going to roll out an emergency alert system that entailed, in part, text messages to one’s phone from the president.  No one can opt out of these “Presidential Alerts,” and there was quite an uproar from the right about this at...

Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) is the latest Democrat to jump on the deception shuttle to, she hopes, the White House in 2020.  She tweeted an 11-second video of soon-to-be Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in which he says, “Filling out the form would make them complicit in the provision of the...

The deplatforming of Alex Jones by social media sites should disturb you whether you are a fan or not. I’ve never been a fan of Jones or his Infowars site. I’ve never gotten past the time Jones led an angry mob against Michelle Malkin in 2008. Still, if this can be...

From Big Tech taking orders from the questionable SPLC to the Big Tech coordinated removal of Alex Jones from social media, from YouTube “fact-checking” climate change materials and PragerU to Facebook and Twitter shadow-banning and/or suspending conservative and right-leaning voices, Big Tech has been in full censorship mode in recent months....
