MRC Poll: 76% of Conservatives Don’t Trust Facebook

by Corinne Weaver

More than three-fourths of conservatives don’t trust Facebook. The social media has been battling controversy after controversy about restricting conservative content.

This is part of the findings of a new poll, conducted by McLaughlin and Associates, specifically looking at conservatives’ attitude towards Facebook, C. The poll asked 1,000 likely voters some questions about their opinions about Big Tech.

According to the poll, 76.7 percent of conservatives polled do not trust Facebook to treat all of its users equally. However, the majority of people polled also expressed a similar opinion, with 63.4 percent of those polled saying they did not trust Facebook to treat all of its users equally.

Facebook recently released a report of its audit, conducted by the former director of the ACLU, Laura Murphy. In the audit, Facebook announced that it was looking to remove even more content based on ideology.

Google did not fare well with conservative opinion either. 62.9 percent of conservatives did not trust the search engine platform to treat users equally. Leaked documents from Google, published by Project Veritas, showed employees labeling conservative figures like Dennis Prager and Ben Shapiro “nazis.” However, almost half of those polled all together did not trust Google either. 47.9 percent agreed that Google did not treat its users equally.

Hiding Socialism Behind Skirts

Former Hillary Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon tweeted on Sunday what I have said for months: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the soul of the soulless Democrat Party.

His tweet responded to Pelosi dismissing as ineffective backbenchers AOC and three other rookie congresswomen Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib. Pelosi told Maureen Dowd, “All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world, but they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.”

True. In the House, they have four votes.

But the Fearsome Foursome have the media and the party’s billionaires such as Jeffrey Epstein. They also have — or think they — immunity from scrutiny of the content of their character because of the color of their skin.

That is why the kingmakers in the party selected them to front the party’s real agenda.

In his tweet, Brian Fallon said, “The four House freshmen whom Pelosi dismisses in the Dowd column have done more to define the vision and moral center of today’s Democratic Party than all of the message bills pushed by the party leadership combined.” Read the rest HERE.

Ross Perot, Billionaire and Former Presidential Candidate, Dead at 89

by Joshua Caplan

Texas billionaire and former presidential candidate Henry Ross Perot is dead at the age of 89-years-old following a five-month fight with leukemia.

Perot, whose 19% of the vote in 1992 stands among the best showings by an independent candidate in the past century, died early Tuesday at his home in Dallas surrounded by his devoted family, family spokesman James Fuller said.

“In business and in life, Ross was a man of integrity and action. A true American patriot and a man of rare vision, principle and deep compassion, he touched the lives of countless people through his unwavering support of the military and veterans and through his charitable endeavors,” Fuller said in a statement.

President Trump to Hold Social Media Summit

Hot topic issues surrounding social media are set to be addressed this week during a summit in Washington, D.C. According to a White House spokesperson, President Trump will host the forum, which is meant to “bring together digital leaders for a robust conversation on the opportunities and challenges of today’s online environment.”

Some of the guests slated to attend include online video platform PragerU as well as representatives from the Heritage Foundation, the Media Research Center, and Turning Point USA.

His words from that platform, though, were strikingly measured, except for some befuddlement over American military history. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)

Ken Cuccinelli: ICE Ready to Deport Approximately 1M Illegal Aliens with Final Deportation Orders

Acting United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director Ken Cuccinelli says the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency is ready to deport about a million illegal aliens who remain in the country despite having final orders for deportation.

During an interview with CBS News on Sunday, Cuccinelli said despite a delay of mass deportations by President Trump two weeks ago, ICE agents are ready to detain and deport the roughly one million illegal aliens who have been ordered deported from the country.

Cuccinelli said:

[ICE agents are] ready to just perform their mission which is to go and find and detain and then deport the approximately one million people who have final removal orders. They’ve been all the way through the due process and have final removal orders. Who among those will be targeted for this particular effort or not is really just information kept within ICE. [Emphasis added]

Cuccinelli said mass deportations by ICE of illegal aliens with final deportation orders “should be going on on a rolling basis” and blamed “the politics of Washington” for interfering with ICE operations. Read the rest HERE.

AfroFuture Music Festival Charges White People Double

Screenshot/eventbrite

by Ben Kew

The AfroFuture music festival in Detroit is charging white people double the price for a ticket compared with people of color, in a move they claim will ensure marginalized groups are given “equitable chance at enjoying events in their own community.”

The festival, scheduled to take place August 3rd, offers different pricing structures depending on whether the attendee is white or a “person of color.” For white people, or “non-persons of color,” early bird tickets cost $10, compared with $20 for people of color. For those purchasing tickets closer to the event, white people will pay $40, compared with $20 for people of color.

The organizers of the event explain the reasons behind their discriminatory system in the “Frequently Asked Questions” section of their website, although it is still unclear how they intend to validate the race and identity of ticket purchasers. Read the rest HERE.

Sarsour Claims Jesus Was Palestinian; ‘Are you that stupid?’ Says Netanyahu’s Son

“Jesus was Palestinian of Nazareth,” Linda Sarsour tweeted over the weekend, sparking a backlash.

By World Israel News Staff 

American political activist Linda Sarsour is claiming that “Jesus was Palestinian of Nazareth and is described in the Quran as being brown copper skinned with wooly hair.”

She tweeted the assertion over the weekend, doubling down afterward amid criticism over her claim that Jesus was from a place that did not exist in his days.

“Jesus was born in Bethlehem… Bethlehem is in Palestine,” she wrote. “It’s currently militarily occupied by Israel and home to a predominately beautiful Palestinian Christian community. Yes, the birthplace of Jesus is under military occupation.”

“Are you that stupid?” Yair Netanyahu, son of the Israeli prime minister, retorted to Sarsour’s comment. [Bold emphasis, mine]

Israel-based journalists led the way in taking Sarsour to task: “Actually, Jesus lived during the Second Temple period, prior to the Romans renaming Judea as Palestina. The chronology doesn’t work out at all,” tweeted Sam Sokol, a former correspondent for The Jerusalem Post.

“If Jesus – who was Jewish – was a Palestinian and lived in Bethlehem 2000 years ago, then you’re saying Jews are indigenous to what is today called Palestine and Jews have a right to live in the West Bank, East Jerusalem, Israel. Glad you cleared this up,” wrote Michele Chabin, who contributes to USA Today and the Jewish Week. Read the rest HERE.
