The Biden administration is playing an active role in flagging Facebook posts it considers to be “problematic” or “disinformation,” according to White House press secretary Jen Psaki. During a Thursday press conference, Psaki said White House senior staff were engaging with “social media platforms” to combat the spread of “misinformation specifically on the pandemic.” “In terms of actions we are taking or that we’re working to take, I should say, from the federal government, we’ve increased disinformation research and tracking within the surgeon general’s office. We're flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation," she said.

By colluding with the government Facebook is no longer a 'private company' but an active servant, agent, or employee of the federal government.

Fakebook has always been a data mining operation of the Federal government, #1. It's hard to believe that anyone still uses that platform anymore, given the number of data breaches they have been a part of.

Uh oh, like #1 said, and worth repeating: FB censorship may not be a violation of the 1A but once they are doing because the government tells them to then it is a clear cut case of 1A violation. Hands down. This could be interesting if some pro free speech org with a few bucks gets involved.

I doubt that any FB post that is critical of or threatening harm to “right-wingers”, Republicans or Trump supporters will be considered “disinformation” or “problematic.” They’re turning this government into a Fascist regime right in front of the press, and they’re saying nothing. In the end, it will come down to loyal American citizen patriots - and their guns.

A federal judge issued an injunction on Friday ordering the Biden administration to cease accepting applications to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The program, initially established in 2012 under the Obama administration, allows illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to defer deportation for two years and to renew the deferral, as well as to receive work permits. DACA recipients are not granted a path to citizenship. The Department of Homeland Security “violated the [Administrative Procedure Act] with the creation of DACA and its continued operation,” Judge Andrew Hanen of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas wrote in a ruling on Friday.

Joe “Grandpa Disaster” Biden was at it again today during his briefing with German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the White House today. Biden definitely seemed to be having a hard time with basic coherence. In his homage to her years of service, he mistakenly called her the “second largest” but then corrected that to the “second longest” serving chancellor. Largest and longest are both good words, but hardly interchangeable and certainly not the best word to use here when referring to Merkel. He then said that they needed to “upend” their “global climate ambitions.”

Usually when a migrant is picked up at the border and makes a claim of asylum, the border patrol processes those claims and gives the migrants a “notice to appear” in a specific court at a specific time. But back in April the Associated Press reported that because of the big surge of migrants at the border, many were being released into the interior of the country with just an instruction which told them to report to an ICE facility within 60 days for processing: The Border Patrol began the unusual practice last week in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, which has seen the biggest increase

The Washington Post reports, with obvious dismay, that American Airlines, Cigna, Aflak, and other corporations are once again making campaign contributions to legislators who opposed certifying Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election. The corporations in question stopped contributing to these members after the events of January 6 this year. However, with the possible exception of Cigna, they didn’t say they would never again contribute to any of them. The companies merely paused their contributions. Thus, the subtitle of the Post’s article — “The flow of money is a sign that corporate America’s promises were temporary” — is nonsensical. The “promises” were “temporary” on their face. American Airlines said it would pause

A Hollywood producer was arrested Thursday for allegedly running “an extensive and far-reaching” prostitution ring — which he hid for years using his moviemaking company, federal prosecutors said. Dillon Jordan — who backed the 2018 Maggie Gyllenhaal drama “The Kindergarten Teacher” — is accused of pimping women to Johns across the US for at least seven years, between 2010 and 2017, according to an indictment filed in the Southern District of New York. Jordan, 49, allegedly used his movie production company and a supposed California-based event-planning firm to hide the proceeds from the sex-sales, according to the court papers

In remarks reported in a forthcoming book, Army General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, compared President Donald Trump to the Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler and his supporters to Nazi brownshirts. Milley said he feared a military coup from Trump, who had decided to contest the results of the 2020 election. Trump responded to the accusation in a blistering statement on Thursday. “Despite massive Voter Fraud and Irregularities during the 2020 Presidential Election Scam, that we are now seeing play out in very big and important States, I never threatened, or spoke about, to anyone, a coup of our Government. So ridiculous!” the former president wrote.

So are the rats fleeing the ship in Cuba? It's always a bad sign when the elites start resigning during times of crisis, as if to get out early to save their skins. There's more than one now as Cuba erupts into protests and calls to end the communist dictatorship, so it's getting to be a pattern.

The prominent historian C. Vann Woodward saw The Strange Career of Jim Crow through three editions. Originally published in 1955, the book was last updated in a third revised edition published in 1974. I believe it remains a useful book for anyone seeking to understand the phenomenon and its legacy. Indeed, as Woodward sought to keep the book current, I think that each of the three editions of the book is useful for this purpose (and that all of his books are worth reading). In the preface to the first edition Woodward explained that the lectures were delivered at the University of Virginia in 1954. “They were given before unsegregated

On Thursday, Dr. Vivek Murthy is releasing the first Surgeon General's advisory of his time serving in the Biden administration, describing the "urgent threat" posed by the rise of false information around COVID-19 — one that continues to put "lives at risk" and prolong the pandemic. Murthy says Americans must do their part to fight misinformation.

ROME — Pope Francis cracked down Friday on the spread of the old Latin Mass, reversing one of Pope Benedict XVI’s signature decisions in a major challenge to traditionalist Catholics who immediately decried it as an attack on the ancient liturgy. Francis reimposed restrictions on celebrating the Latin Mass that Benedict relaxed in 2007. The pontiff said he was taking action because Benedict’s reform had become a source of division in the church and been used as a tool by Catholics opposed to the Second Vatican Council, the 1960s meetings that modernized the liturgy. Francis issued a new law requiring individual bishops to approve celebrations of the old Mass
