Another Facebook “Hate Agent” Revealed

Breitbart just released another bombshell on Facebook’s “Hate Agents” internal list: conservative author and terrorism expert Brigitte Gabriel. Facebook has already confessed that the list is divided into three levels tracking its users’ “signals” as far back as three years. According to the spreadsheet, Gabriel was specifically flagged for “1 lifetime deletion for hate speech-dehumanizing” after speaking at a Christians United for Israel event where she referred to “Arabs as Barbarians” in the context of giving martyrdom status to suicide bombers who kill Jews. This is just one small facet of the Silicon Left’s censorship of the Right ahead of 2020.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Lebanese-American conservative author and terrorism expert Brigitte Gabriel is also on an internal list of “Hate Agents” maintained by Facebook, Breitbart News can exclusively reveal.

Breitbart News exposed the existence of the “Hate Agents” list last week, after a Facebook insider leaked a partial screenshot showing black conservative leader Candace Owens was also on the list. The insider, who leaked the information to Breitbart, also shared a partial image of the list.

Following the leak, Facebook admitted that the list exists, but stressed that Owens had not yet been investigated.

Rep. AOC Mistakes Fellow Democrat for a Republican

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) very publicly and egregiously condemned a fellow congressman in her own party for posing with a cardboard cutout of her… mistaking him for a Republican. “GOP: Let’s post our older male members next to cardboard cutouts of young female legislators,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in the now deleted tweet. Except it was Representative John Yarmuth (D-KY). “Maybe if @AOC spent more time interacting with lawmakers and less time making coloring books, she’d recognize the other socialist Democrats in her caucus,” tweeted the National Republican Congressional Committee.

Here’s more from New York Post…

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fired off a tweet on Thursday calling out Kentucky Republicans for posting a photo of an older GOP lawmaker posing with a cutout of her — turns out the politician was a Democratic colleague.

“GOP: Let’s post our older male members next to cardboard cutouts of young female legislators,” the freshman Democrat wrote in the now-deleted tweet.

The problem is that the lawmaker in the photo is Rep. John Yarmuth, a Democrat from Kentucky.

The National Republican Congressional Committee, which works to elect Republican members of the House, quickly pointed out the mistake.

Rosenstein Blasts Obama, FBI Leakers

At an event this week, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein defended the Mueller report fact-checking the politicians, pundits, and Obama administration hacks, arguing “It’s not our job to render conclusive factual findings. We just decide whether it is appropriate to file criminal charges.” His return fire comes amid Democrats assailing the DOJ for failing to indict President Trump. AG Barr is expected to testify in the coming days on the Mueller report in what we expect to be another chapter in the Democrats’ fishing expedition ahead of 2020.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

During an event in New York City, Thursday evening, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein shared his feelings about the special counsel’s Russia investigation, while throwing shade on critics, politicians, the media and the Obama administration.

Speaking at a dinner where he was honored by the Armenian Bar Association, Rosenstein defended his handling of the probe, recalling how he had promised to “do it right” during his Senate confirmation hearing and to “take it to the appropriate conclusion.”

“It’s not our job to render conclusive factual findings. We just decide whether it is appropriate to file criminal charges,” Rosenstein noted.

Planned Parenthood Prez Named Among “100 Most Influential People”

Time magazine has dubbed Planned Parenthood President Dr. Leana Wen among its list of “100 most influential people” of 2019, with New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon gushing in the article that she’s “just what the doctor ordered to lead Planned Parenthood” and a “visionary.” Wen memorably tweeted in January that Planned Parenthood’s “core mission is providing, protecting and expanding access to abortion and reproductive health care.” Wen separately told Kaiser Health News that “We cannot separate out one of our services. That’s not how medicine works.” Only in the mind of a pro-abort does the murder of millions of babes in the womb count as “medicine.” Somewhere we recall reading the words: “First, do no harm.”

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Time magazine named Planned Parenthood President Dr. Leana Wen as one of its “100 most influential people” of 2019.

In a glowing piece about Wen, actress and failed New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon said physician Wen is “just what the doctor ordered” as the person to lead Planned Parenthood.

The Sex and the City star wrote about Wen:

She’s working to expand the sexual- and reproductive-health services offered at Planned Parenthood health centers, including cancer screenings, STI testing and treatment, affordable birth control, maternal health services, mental–health counseling and hormone therapy for trans people.

BuzzFeed “Bombshell” Shredded by Mueller Report

On Jan. 18, a now infamous BuzzFeed story erroneously revealed that estranged Trump attorney Michael Cohen “told the special counsel that after the election, the president personally instructed him to lie-by claiming that negotiations ended months earlier than they actually did-in order to obscure Trump’s involvement.” What BuzzFeed called “the first known example of Trump explicitly telling a subordinate to lie directly about his own dealings with Russia” has now been decisively debunked by Robert Mueller’s report. According to the report, “Cohen said that he and the President did not explicitly discuss whether Cohen’s testimony about the Trump Tower Moscow project would be or was false, and the President did not direct him to provide false testimony. Cohen also said he did not tell the President about the specifics of his planned testimony.” BuzzFeed’s dubious Leftist smear campaign has been exposed for everyone to see. Precisely no one can believe anything they report ever again. In other words, welcome to the MSNBC Club for Dezinformatsiya.

Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation directly contradicts an explosive BuzzFeed story that claimed Mueller had evidence President Donald Trump directed Michael Cohen, his former attorney, to lie to Congress about a potential Moscow real estate deal.

The Jan. 18 BuzzFeed story claimed that Cohen “told the special counsel that after the election, the president personally instructed him to lie — by claiming that negotiations ended months earlier than they actually did — in order to obscure Trump’s involvement.”

The story claimed that Mueller’s office “learned about Trump’s directive for Cohen to lie to Congress through interviews with multiple witnesses from the Trump Organization and internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents. Cohen then acknowledged those instructions during his interviews with that office.”

Rachel Maddow Tears Up, Spins “No Collusion”

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow fought back tears on the air following the Friday night news dump of the Mueller report… or, more specifically, the exposure of the Left’s lies for the past two years about the Trump campaign colluding with Russia. Maddow explained to viewers that she cut her fishing vacation short to break down the Mueller report for them, saying, “This is a reason to stop fishing and go to work.” She argued that her “work” now is to figure out what to do with the devastating blow to their anti-Trump narrative: “In terms of what that means and what Mueller found, we know only the smallest little bits. This is the start of something apparently, not the end of something.” Maddow is exactly right. It’s the start of comeuppance for Democrats for spending millions of dollars and two full years on what is essentially an attempted coup by the DOJ and former Obama Deep State officials.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow had a hard go of it during her Friday evening broadcast. The expressive liberal nearly broke down into tears relaying to her viewers that Special Counsel Robert Mueller — after two long years of investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election — will not be pursuing additional indictments.

Maddow explained to viewers that she rushed to the studio, cutting her Tennessee vacation short, to deliver the death-blow personally to her comrades in the Trump #Resistance.

“A couple of hours ago, or maybe even less than that, I was standing knee-deep in a trout stream in Tennessee,” the MSNBC host opened her show, according to The Blaze. “But now it’s Mueller time! And so I’m in a studio in the great state of Tennessee. The trout are basically just as safe as they were when I was flailing away at them ineffectually this afternoon.”

“But now, listen, this is history. This is a reason to stop fishing and go to work,” said a visibly emotional Maddow. “Our job tonight — as a country sort of or at least — what everybody in the country is going to be doing tonight is trying to figure out what it means that the report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller has finally been submitted.

Twitter CEO: “Probably Way Too Aggressive” in Banning Conservatives

During an interview on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admitted that the social media giant was “probably way too aggressive” in banning conservatives. Independent journalist Tim Pool successfully squeezed answers out of Dorsey on questions related to the banning of conservatives. The obvious question now-given that social media runs on the government-subsidized backbone-when will Congress step in and regulate?

Here’s more from Breitbart…

During a recent appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey stated that the social media platform was “probably way too aggressive” in banning conservatives.

On a recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey returned to the show this time accompanied by Vijaya Gadde, Twitter’s Legal, Policy and Trust & Safety Lead. Independent journalist Tim Pool also appeared on the show, where he grilled the Twitter executives about their platform, multiple times backing them into a corner and forcing them to answer questions on topics they had previously evaded.

During the course of the podcast, the topic of the recent “learn to code” phrase came up. Shortly after a number of left-wing journalists were laid off, Twitter users — many who were conservatives — tweeted at the journalists to “learn to code,” the same advice that many left-wing publications gave to coal miners and laborers who found themselves out of jobs.

YouTube Admits Manipulated Rankings of Pro-Life Videos

YouTube has come out swinging after leaked internal discussions at the Google-owned platform revealed hands-on manipulation to suppress conservatives. The online video giant says that its suppression of pro-life videos when the search for abortion comes up is because such content contained “misinformation” or “graphic content.” Among this “misinformation” deliberately downranked was congressional testimony from Dr. Antony Levatino, a former abortion doctor, which is hardly misinformation or graphic. The bias is now obvious, and it may be time for Congress to step in.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

In a comment to the Daily Mail for a story about Breitbart News’ publication of internal discussions revealing search manipulation by the Google-owned video platform, YouTube admitted that it meddled with search results for “abortion.”

However, YouTube seems to be standing by its decision, claiming that the videos that were pushed out of the top search results for the query contained “misinformation” or “graphic content.”

Per the Daily Mail:

The spokesperson added that when the changes were made, no videos were removed from the site and the ones that were shifted ‘contained misinformation alongside graphic images’.

Breitbart News reported earlier this week on internal discussions at Google showing that YouTube added the search terms “abortion” and “abortions” to an internal “blacklist” file inside the company.

CNN’S Acosta Proves Border Wall Works

CNN reporter Jim Acosta just inserted himself in the middle of the border security shutdown battle on Capitol Hill. In a live report, Acosta attempted to show how “safe” the U.S.-Mexico border is…while behind a border wall. He was swiftly called out by Mark Morgan, former chief of U.S. Border Patrol, for the unintentional irony of proving that President Donald Trump is right to demand border security. “I hope the American people aren’t lost on the irony that he’s standing behind a wall saying it’s peaceful. Because there’s a wall. Think about that, right? The irony there.” Morgan then challenged Acosta to report from the unfenced portion of the border at night…where real criminals are killing real Border Patrol agents every single year. Imagine that: bad guys don’t cross the border in daylight. Thanks for the tip there, Jim.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

The former chief of U.S. Border Patrol hit at CNN reporter Jim Acosta for claiming earlier on Thursday that the Rio Grande Valley region of the U.S.-Mexico border was a “safe” place.

“I hope the American people aren’t lost on the irony that he’s standing behind a wall saying it’s peaceful. Because there’s a wall. Think about that, right? The irony there,” Mark Morgan, who led Border Patrol from mid-2016 into early 2017, told Fox News host Laura Ingraham late Thursday.

Acosta visited McAllen, Texas, Thursday as part of the White House press pool that accompanied Trump on the trip.

“The steel slats don’t run the entire length of the border in the McAllen area,” Acosta tweeted along with a photo of himself standing by the steel-bollard barrier. “We found one part where there is a chain link fence. Occasionally migrants come thru but residents say their community is quite safe.”

Obama’s Border Patrol Chief Debunks Open Borders Left

Former Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan, who served in the Obama administration, was swift to debunk the “fake news” being spewed by the former president’s party. During an appearance on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on the Trump shutdown address, Morgan revealed that CBP agents routinely arrest “murderers, rapists, pedophiles, other violent offenders, and gang members” at the Mexican border. “That is not manufactured. That is real, and that’s a fact, and it’s still happening today…and I would say one last point is 127 Border Patrol agents have died. They didn’t die playing Monopoly. They died defending, being the frontline defenders of our borders, trying to apprehend 17,000 people, the bad people.” That’s a stark report from someone the Left would expect to follow the liberal line. Rest assured, though, that Pelosi, Schumer, and their ilk are leaning on the Left media’s portrayal of sob stories at the border, all while ignoring the criminals flooding into the U.S.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Obama’s former Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan responded to President Donald Trump’s Wednesday speech on illegal immigration by noting that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents regularly apprehend “murderers, rapists, pedophiles, other violent offenders, and gang members.”

Morgan made the remarks while appearing on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” with host Tucker Carlson immediately following Trump’s Oval Office address.

“Before I was even chief of Border Patrol, I served on the FBI for two decades,” he told Carlson. “One of my assignments was I led the El Paso office. From my office right on the border, I could see Juarez. Every day, Tucker, we worked the DEA and all components of DHS. And we worked human trafficking cases, we worked drug cases, and we worked drug and gang cases, all impacting the southern border.”

“And then as chief, every single day, Tucker, I was briefed every single day about the men and women who are risking their lives every day and they’re apprehending murderers, rapists, pedophiles, other violent offenders, and gang members,” Morgan continued.
