PJ Media: Mark Zuckerberg Brags: We Didn’t Allow Pro-Life Groups to Advertise Before Ireland’s Abortion Vote

During this year’s Aspen Ideas Festival, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg explained that Facebook is increasingly trying to work with governments to determine what political speech it does and does not allow. Oh sorry, I mean: what kind of political ads it is willing to approve.

In the particular example Zuckerberg cited, in 2018, American pro-life groups wanted to run advertisements for Facebook users in Ireland. This is because the Irish were about to vote in a referendum on whether abortion should be legalized.

When Facebook saw the ad requests, the company contacted the Irish government asking whether this should or should not be allowed. “Their response at the time was, ‘we don’t currently have a law, so you need to make whatever decision you want to make.'”

In other words, Facebook could do as it pleased. There was no legal reason to disallow the ads. But what did Facebook do? You guessed it:”We ended up not allowing the ads.”

PJ Media: Democratic Congresswoman Caught Sending Staff to Mexico to Coach Asylum-Seekers

According to the National Border Patrol Council’s El Paso chapter and several Customs and Border Protection personnel,  freshman Congresswoman Rep. Veronica Escobar has been sending members of her staff in secret to the Mexican border town of Ciudad Juárez to coach asylum seekers on how to game the system and make it into the U.S.

The Washington Examiner reports that the aides are looking to “find migrants returned from El Paso, Texas, under the ‘remain in Mexico’ policy, then coaching them to pretend they cannot speak Spanish to exploit a loophole letting them to [sic] return to the U.S.”

PJ Media: Russia to Make Its Own ‘Chernobyl’ Film Blaming U.S. and CIA for Nuclear Accident

Vladimir Putin’s Russia is looking more and more like the old Soviet Union. This is to be expected given that Putin cut his teeth as a Communist apparatchik working for the KGB back in the day.

But in Russia, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Recently, HBO broadcast the emotionally gripping account of what happened during the 1986 disaster at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. The series Chernobyl, which ended a few days ago, depicted the stupidity, negligence, bureaucratic bungling, heroism, and the conspiracy of silence from the government that kept the true cost in lives and rubles of the disaster secret for decades. The series was a huge hit — even in Russia.

But the portrayal in the series of Soviet government culpability in keeping vital information from the operators at the power plant and the KGB efforts to hush the whole thing up apparently didn’t sit well with Putin’s regime. The Cultural Ministry is funding a film of the disaster that tells a much different story.

PJ Media: It’s Time for a Thoroughgoing Revamping of the Intelligence Community | Faster, Please!

The intelligence community is out of control…. time to reign it in.

Among the urgent tasks we must quickly undertake, few are so urgent as a thoroughgoing revamping of the intelligence community. At the moment, it isn’t very impressive in either of the two main activities with which it’s entrusted: spying on our enemies and supporting our friends. You can see this easily enough. The Israelis, not the CIA et al., made off with the Iranians’ secret nuclear plans. So much for effective espionage. And there are two very closely linked enemies, Iran and Venezuela, that should be prime targets for subversion, but we don’t seem to be making good progress.

On the other hand, the intelligence community seems to do well, or at least try harder, at subverting our own political order, as we’ve learned over the recent past.

Or maybe not. Although the attempted subversion of Trump and associates produced the downfall of Lt. General Michael Flynn, the centerpiece of the intel operation—the Mueller show investigation—came up empty-handed, and the top levels of the FBI and CIA now face inquiries from Attorney General Barr, Justice Department Inspector General Horowitz, and the U.S. Attorney in Connecticut. Some of our top spooks have been fired.

PJ Media: The Trump ‘Secret Server’ Hoax Was a Subplot of the DNC Spygate Strategy to Foment the Russia Collusion Conspiracy

The democRATS are criminals.

The “secret Trump-Alfa Bank servers communication” is a piece of Spygate that demonstrates the mechanics of the operation. It also shows that the Steele report was purely a product of Fusion GPS, manufactured to support and/or exploit DNC public messaging and FBI/CIA operations against the Trump campaign. No intelligence collection was involved in the “Steele dossier” preparation.

PJ Media: Palestinian TV Series Shows Man Teaching Child How to Shoot ‘the Jews’

Ultimately, the Palestinians only have themselves to blame for the death that comes their way… They’ve had many chances to live in peace with Jews, but refuse… so screw’em.

Official Palestinian Authority TV is running an ahistorical and blatantly anti-Semitic series that features an adult man teaching a child how to shoot “the Jews,” and characterizes the Jewish people as “cowards,” rapists, “impure schemers,” and “the enemy.”

This evil propaganda is being broadcast during the month of Ramadan, which is considered the holiest month of the year for Muslims.

PJ Media: Democrat-Media Complex Ignores Story of Gun Control Lobbyist Arrested for Assault, Domestic Violence, False Imprisonment

The winds of the Culture of Corruption absolutely blow to the left.

Robert Blaisdell, managing partner for Demers, Blaisdell & Parsol Inc. and a lobbyist for Michael Bloomberg’s “Everytown” gun control group, was arrested earlier in May on a whole host of charges in Manchester, New Hampshire. He was charged on domestic violence-related crimes of simple assault, false imprisonment, and criminal mischief. Police say Blaisdell “knowingly” confined a family member, trapping his victim by “holding the laundry room door closed over a period of several minutes.” Police claim that Blaisdell also stepped on the person’s hand during the incident, and also allegedly destroyed their cellphone.

PJ Media: No, President Trump Is NOT Delaying the Harriet Tubman $20 Bill

I’m not personally opposed to a Harriet Tubman $20 Bill, and I really think it’s amusing how the left wing fear mongers things like this, while pretending it’s only the right wing who tries to play on people’s fears.

I really want this version of the Tubman 20

I’m going to guess if you’re breathing and not hiding under a rock, you’ve heard that Trump — Orange Man Bad — is delaying the release of Harriet Tubman’s $20 bill, because… because… well, because, I guess, Orange Man Bad.

I don’t know where these moral panics of the left originate.  One of their prize idiots came up with this idiotic idea about how Trump must be slow-walking the Harriet Tubman bill because a man who hired and worked with people of all colors and sexes is supposedly racist and sexist. Don’t ask why. The left’s mythology commands it. And then they all jumped on it via the communal chirping that passes for thinking on their side: “Wait, wasn’t it supposed to be out in 2020?” “OMG, he’s delaying it.” “Resist.”

Look, if the left doesn’t want to be called chicks — particularly the males — they should stop acting like a hen house full of panicked hens, all cluck and feathers and — arguably — the most stupid creatures to walk the Earth since the Jurassic Era. Though even chickens — or dinosaurs — fail to be as malevolent as the left.

PJ Media: Online Extremism Researcher Eoin Lenihan Finds Twitter Ties Linking HuffPost, the Guardian, and the SPLC to Antifa

It’s not that democrat with bylines are against violence, they support antifa violence.

Eoin Lenihan, a former teacher and current analyst focused on online extremism, announced that his team had “mapped the social interactions of 58,254 Antifa affiliated accounts on Twitter based on an initial seed of 16 self-identifying and verifiable Antifa accounts (and Mark Bray who chose not to confirm if he is a member of Antifa but whose book makes a solid case for inclusion).”

In a long Twitter thread, Lenihan revealed the results of his study, zeroing in on the 1.65 percent of Twitter accounts most closely connected with Antifa, a total of 962 accounts. Each had a minimum of eight connections with known activists.

After mentioning a few journalists with close Antifa connections and Twitter bios mentioning their anti-fascist affiliation, Lenihan turned to Emily Gorcenski, who “uses Twitter to dox those she deems fascist. Further she created the ‘First Vigil’ website that processes court documents to share the personal information of suspected members of the far right. In cases where people are found innocent (50%), info is still shared.”
