Organizational Hubris at the FBI
By James Davidson, Former FBI Agent & President of ProtectTheFBI.org

Several journalists recently made the case that an FBI culture characterized by hubris precipitated the FBI's improperly predicated investigation into the Trump campaign. They also argued that this hubris extends well beyond the 7th floor of the J. Edgar Hoover building and permeates the entire organization. We prefer to wait for the Inspector General's soon-to-be-released report before concluding whether the investigation was properly predicated. Protect the FBI also believes journalists often exaggerate the nature and extent of the FBI's cultural hubris. [more...]

Hollywood's Human Rights Duplicity
By James Hirsen

After a law was passed in Georgia to save the lives of pre-born babies with detectable heartbeats, many in Hollywood grabbed their leftist playbooks and began clamoring for a boycott of the state. Netflix, Disney, and a smattering of Left Coast companies threatened to pull production away from Georgia if the implementation of the law began to take effect. Despite the high degree of virtue signaling that has taken place regarding the issue, Hollywood continues to conduct business with foreign governments that hold abysmal human rights records.

Facebook Value Goes Crypto
By Lowell Ponte

18 months ago, social network giant Facebook announced that it was banning all ads for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as "frequently associated with misleading or deceptive promotional practices." But this week, Facebook will issue formal notice of its own cryptocurrency called Libra, to be launched early next year. Facebook has more than a dozen partners in this new money, including Visa and MasterCard, two companies Libra could undercut with lower prices for transactions. Libra is a "stablecoin," not a speculative gamble whose value shoots up and down like Bitcoin. Its value will be "pegged" to a "basket of currencies," to conservative stocks, and perhaps even to a fraction of gold. Mark Zuckerberg is already distrusted for violating the privacy of customers, and for censoring conservatives for their views. How will we like Zuckerberg when he also becomes head of one of the world's largest central banks - which, with 2.4 billion Facebook customers, is what the Libra consortium will be? It could become a threat to the future of the U.S. Dollar. [more...]

Tyranny Masquerading as Tolerance
By David Horowitz

Through a perverse but also inevitable twist to Identity Politics, the most aggressively bigoted and hate-filled censors seeking to suppress and marginalize individuals whom they regard as “other” are the very movements organized as advocates for “victim” minorities. The haters include white supremacist fringe movements who think that through attacks on Jews and Blacks they are actually defending whites (who are indeed targeted by so-called social justice warriors. But the most prominent and far more numerous hate groups are the social justice warriors themselves - Black Lives Matter, the misnamed Human Rights Campaign and the equally misnamed Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, an organization that is well-practiced in the art of defamation against what it refers to as “oppressor” groups.

What is George Will Rooting For?
By Karen Kataline

Yesterday, Washington Post columnist George Will predicted the eventual presidential nominee of the Democratic Party would beat President Trump in 2020. George Will detests the President so much that in his recent op-ed, “To beat Trump, Dems must practice a politics of modesty,” he refers to him as “today’s incumbent.” One wonders if he referred to President Trump’s predecessor the same way. Will tells Democrats they can beat “today’s incumbent” by employing the “politics of “modesty.” Here’s a question for George: How is it modest to disguise one’s immense hubris as humility just so you can win? [more...]

Never-Trumpers Killed CNN

Brent Bozell, founder of the Media Research Center, outlines a very specific message in his new book, Unmasked: Big Media’s War Against Trump: The media’s anti-Trump mindset is putting them out of business. “Can they regain their credibility? I think the answer’s no,” Bozell explained. “You’ve got to have other voices.” Can CNN, MSNBC and the rest of the legacy media ever gain back the public’s trust? [more...]
