Ted Cruz Grills Zuckerberg Over FB’s Censorship Of Conservatives

 

 

Via Daily Caller:

Sen. Ted Cruz clearly rattled Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg Tuesday by grilling him about Facebook’s well-documented censorship of conservatives.

Zuckerberg had a relatively easy time facing questioning during his Tuesday testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committees until Cruz took over the helm.

Cruz noted the number of examples of Facebook censoring conservatives, including labeling conservative commentators Diamond and Silk as “unsafe,” hiding stories about the IRS targeting conservatives and blocking over two dozen Catholic pages.

“To a great many Americans, that appears to be a pervasive pattern of political bias,” Cruz said. “Do you agree with that assessment?”

Zuckerberg admitted that Facebook’s location in the highly-liberal Silicon Valley could concern conservative users, but assured Cruz that the platform tries to be unbiased.

FITTON: Justice Department Is STILL Covering Up Infamous Lynch-Clinton Tarmac Meeting (VIDEO)

 

I POSTED BOTH PICTURES AND THE VIDEO BELOW AND THEY ARE NOT FROM THE “SOURCE” ARTICLE……Papa Mike

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told Fox News Sunday that he believes the Justice Department is still in ‘cover-up mode,’ over the infamous meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton during the 2016 election. 

Fox Insider reports:

“We still don’t have a full explanation from either her or Bill Clinton about what went on,” Fitton said on “Fox & Friends.” “The Justice Department was a mess under Loretta Lynch. This meeting was an example of the way it bent over backwards — both in appearance and in fact — on behalf of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton regime.”

He added that the Justice Department and the FBI have not been forthcoming with unredacted documents related to the meeting, and Judicial Watch is fighting to get to the bottom of it.

“It’s still cover-up mode on this meeting, which is very interesting,” Fitton said. “Why hasn’t Loretta Lynch been called to Congress or before a grand jury in a significant way about this?”

Last November, Judicial Watch released 29 pages of Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting documents that were previously withheld by the Justice Department.

The new FBI documents show FBI officials were concerned about a leak that Bill Clinton delayed his aircraft taking off in order to “maneuver” a meeting with the attorney general.  The resulting story in the Observer is seemingly confirmed and causes a flurry of emails about the source of the article.  FBI official(s) write “we need to find that guy” and that the Phoenix FBI office was contacted “in an attempt to stem any further damage.”  Another FBI official, working on AG Lynch’s security detail, suggests instituting non-disclosure agreements.  The names of the emails authors are redacted. There are no documents showing concern about the meeting itself.

Has The California Backlash Against Liberal Craziness Finally Begun?

 

Conservatives and people with sense are fighting back in California.

Via Fox News:

In a state consumed by conservation and environmental issues, one highly endangered species has long gone unnoticed and unprotected – the California Conservative. Is it still possible to rescue them from the brink of extinction? Can their numbers be revived? And can they thrive here once again?

While the nation continues to view California as a homogeneous voting block of individuals in lock step with an increasingly progressive liberal agenda, for Common Sense Californians up and down the left coast state, there’s a sense that a different tide is rising.

The ripple began in Los Alamitos where the city council voted to opt out of California’s sanctuary law. And it was followed by Orange County who voted to join the U.S. Department of Justice in challenging the state’s sanctuary city laws. This decision was echoed by the city of Escondido and later this month San Diego County will also vote to join their ranks in this federal lawsuit. Other municipalities are lining up to consider doing the same.

California has always been the tip of the spear. Often the genesis of art, influence, ideas, style and entertainment, we also take the lead in ways that are less admirable with high state tax, high gas tax, high costs of living and housing, an out of control homeless problem in our urban areas, declining test scores in schools, increasingly inaccessible and cost-prohibitive health care, and many of our major cities often appear on lists of the least-livable cities in the U.S.

NOT COMING FOR YOUR GUNS: ILLINOIS TOWN AUTHORIZES CONFISCATION OF “ASSAULT WEAPONS” AND LARGE CAPACITY MAGAZINES

 

Remember, they’re totally not coming for the guns of law abiding citizens……because they legislate turning law abiding citizens into criminals (while being soft on actual criminals)

(Chicago Tribune) Owners of assault weapons living in north suburban Deerfield have until June 13 to remove the firearms from within village limits or face daily fines after a ban was approved Monday night.

The Village Board of Trustees unanimously approved a ban on certain types of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, amending a 2013 ordinance that regulated the storage of those items.

The new ordinance prohibits the possession, sale and manufacturing of certain types of assault weapons and large capacity magazines within the village, according to the ordinance. One change from the law as it was originally discussed exempts retired police officers from the ban, according to Village Manager Kent Street.

Gun Permit Applications Take A Huge Jump

 

The number of Americans interested in obtaining concealed carry permits to secretly bear arms in public has jumped dramatically since the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February – with some states having seen as much as a 250 per cent increase in training requests for this type of permit.

Interest In Concealed Carry Permit Training Jumps 100 Per Cent After Parkland

 

Via Independent:

The number of Americans interested in obtaining concealed carry permits to secretly bear arms in public has jumped dramatically since the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February – with some states having seen as much as a 250 per cent increase in training requests for this type of permit.

In the 50 days since the Parkland, Florida shooting, companies and networks of firearm instructors that provide training for the permits in dozens of states have seen enquiries spike. One company said it had even received more requests for training than after the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

“There’s been a lot of shootings, unfortunately, in this country, but we’ve never seen a spike this big before, even with Newtown,” Chris Schultrop, the CEO and co-founder of Minnesota-based concealed permit training network National Carry Academy (NCA), which works across 27 states, told The Independent.

The intensified interest comes as some Republicans in Washington are leading a push to pass a sweeping national concealed carry law that would force states to recognise all permits issued in the United States. That would mean states that do not allow concealed carry permits would have to allow people to use them. Meanwhile, teenage survivors of the Valentine’s Day Parkland shooting are leading a national movement pushing in the opposite direction; for stricter gun control laws.

An analysis by NCA found that it had seen a 103.5 per cent increase in interest in it’s trainings in the month following the Parkland, Florida shooting in February, including a spike of as much as 283 per cent in Ohio.

That’s similar to what other networks have experienced, like Concealed Carry Inc, which markets itself as the largest concealed carry training network in the United States and works across 28 states. Jacob Paulsen, a trainer with the network, said that it saw about a 250 per cent increase in interest over concealed carry in Florida alone, and at least a 100 per cent increase in its network as a whole.

Male Colorado Democrat Has Penchant for Ladies’ Bathroom

 

Yikes.

Via Free Beacon:

A Democratic state senator in Colorado, who is a man, “frequently” enters the women’s bathroom, contradicting his claim that he only accidentally used the ladies room once.

A recording between the state senate secretary and the Colorado State Patrol, obtained through a records request by the conservative nonprofit Compass Colorado, revealed Sen. Daniel Kagan’s visits made his female colleagues uncomfortable.

Last month, Sen. Beth Martinez Humenik filed a workplace sexual harassment complaint against Kagan for using the women’s bathroom “multiple times.”

“I confronted him in the bathroom itself and said, ‘What are you doing in here?’” Martinez Humenik told KUNC, a public radio station. “Then, as we were walking out, I said, ‘It’s not OK for you to be here. I don’t want to see you here again.’”

What Is Mark Zuckerberg Hiding? Facebook Secretly Deletes CEO’s Private Messages

 

Three sources claim old Facebook messages from Zuckerberg have disappeared from their inbox. The recipients were not notified – raising concerns about what the Facebook CEO could be hiding. Facebook claims the change was made after the 2014 Sony Pictures hack, when a mass data breach at the movie studio resulted in embarrassing email histories being leaked.

However, the lack of disclosure has angered some users, along with the absence of a similar tool to recall messages for normal users.An email receipt of a message from 2010 seen by TechCrunch proves some messages from the Facebook CEO no longer appear in chat logs or Facebook files.The removal of these messages was not disclosed publicly and users were not informed.

The fact the company is prepared to make exceptions makes a mockery of its statement that it wants to ‘make the world more open and transparent’, say experts.Facebook claimed these messages were deleted due to concerns about corporate security.

Calls to wrestle power from the hands of Zuckerberg have officially begun. One New York pension fund boss is demanding the social network giant boost oversight by replacing Zuckerberg as Facebook’s chairman.

Zerohedge reports:

Though New York City’s pension fund – which has about $1 billion invested in Facebook stock – doesn’t have the clout to unilaterally push for change, Stringer said he’s pushing for a shakeup on the company’s board of directors. Specifically, Stringer wants Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to relinquish his role as chairman, and hand the position over to an “independent” advisor.

“I think this is a wake-up call. This is a company that lost $50 billion after this scandal broke that’s not an insignificant amount of money even for Mark Zuckerberg – the value of the company has gone down and my job is to represent the firefighters, teachers, police officers, the people for whom we invest on their behalf. We thinkthere needs to be more independent board oversight I think there needs to be an independent chairman of the board.”

Anti Gun DIMocrat “Judge” Insults Rape Victim, Community Outraged

 

Controversial judge Kenneth Walker seems have stepped in it again. Judge Walker, of Multnomah County, is best known for his rant about wanting to confiscate all guns and throw them into the ocean. But now he may be staking a new claim to fame. During the sentencing for a domestic abuse case, Walker reprimanded the victim three times during her victim’s impact statement, before he eventually left the courtroom without even bothering to hear what she had to say. He’s now facing multiple complaints submitted Oregon Judicial Fitness Commission.

The Oregonian first reported:

Dana Parks appeared in a Multnomah County courtroom last month armed with a four-page, typed statement. In December, her ex-boyfriend, who’d already pleaded guilty once to assaulting her, had pleaded guilty to a second assault charge and to violating his probation regarding his first assault conviction. Now, Zachary Ball, 22, was in court to be formally sentenced.

But while she attempted to read her victim impact statement, Judge Kenneth R. Walker interrupted three times and ultimately walked out of the courtroom without allowing her to finish, according to a tape of the hearing.

It’s hard enough for victims of domestic violence to feel heard in the legal system. After leaving Walker’s courtroom, Parks said she questioned herself: “Am I being hysterical?”

Oregon law gives victims the right at sentencing to “reasonably express any views concerning the crime, the person responsible, the impact of the crime on the victims, and the need for restitution and compensatory fine.”

There’s no word limit. No time cut-off.

When she began to speak about a time she said Ball allegedly sexually assaulted her, Walker interrupted.

“Ma’am, please don’t tell me the details of this,” the judge said, according to an audio recording of Ball’s sentencing hearing.

“Why?” Parks asked.

“I don’t want to hear this. Continue with your message.”

Ball never faced any sexual assault charges involving Parks, but her victim’s advocates hadn’t said anything was out-of-bounds for her statement. If the judge had told her she wasn’t allowed to say that, Parks wouldn’t have felt so stung.

But it wasn’t “You can’t say that.”

It was “I don’t want to hear it.”

Parks had one paragraph left – about her complaints regarding the court system – when Walker said, “OK, I’ve heard enough. Thank you. Thank you.”

Assistant District Attorney Jessica Bostwick spoke up.

“Your honor, respectfully, I do think she—”

Walker cut her off: “I know what you think.”

He told Parks to sit down and proceeded to hand down the sentence already agreed upon by both parties – 36 months in prison and credit for time served.

“And if the court would allow,” Bostwick said at the close of the decision, “I do believe Ms. Parks would like to finish her statement to the court.”

“I think Ms. Parks has said enough,” Walker said. Then he left the courtroom. On the recording, it sounds like a door slammed behind him.

The last words on the recording are from a bewildered Parks asking the district attorney, “How come I … had to go through that?”

Since then, the community has been in a uproar about the judge’s antics. People are now making formal complaints

The latest Oregonian article includes:

Complaints about Walker’s actions were filed with the Oregon Judicial Fitness Commission over the last few days by Anne Pratt, vice president of Crime Victims United; Mary Elledge, Portland chapter leader of Parents of Murdered Children; and Danielle Tudor, a rape survivor and victims advocate.

Such complaints are generally confidential, but the three women released theirs to the public.

“If Judge Walker’s actions are not challenged and addressed, we risk setting a precedent for future victims that they can expect to be interrupted, treated with contempt and disrespected,” Tudor wrote in her complaint. “Judge Walker publicly demeaned Ms. Parks in the presence of her abuser and, in so doing, minimized the crime of domestic violence, whether he intended to or not.”

The judge is trying to backstep:

You’ll Love What Justice Sotomayor Has To Say About Justice Thomas

 

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has kind words for her ideological foil.

Appearing Tuesday at Vanderbilt University Law School, Sotomayor expressed her deep personal affection for Justice Clarence Thomas.

“He knows the name of every single employee in the building,” Sotomayor told students and faculty, according to local media. “I can stand here and say I just love the man as a person. He has the same value towards human beings as I have, despite our differences.”

Though silent on the bench, Thomas is a gregarious presence at the Court. Sotomayor has noted elsewhere that Thomas takes an acute interest in the Court’s employees, and his infectious laugh strikes a charming note during his occasional public appearances.

Thomas and Sotomayor disagreed in 32 percent of cases during the Court’s previous term, according to statistics compiled by SCOTUSblog. Thomas only broke with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg more frequently.

Ideological differences notwithstanding, Sotomayor said the Court’s renowned collegiality stems from its abiding commitment to shaping the law in good faith.

“All nine of us are equally passionate about the Constitution and the law,” she said.
