Trump White House aide points finger at Jan. 6 National Guard call-up in 14th Amendment trial.

Former Trump administration aide Kash Patel on Wednesday denied claims that President Trump chose not to call up the National Guard during the Jan. 6 attacks or delayed efforts to approve their deployments in testimony he provided in the former president’s 14th Amendment case in Colorado.

Patel, who was the chief of staff to acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller during the Jan. 6 attacks, argued that it was instead D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser who delayed calls for the National Guard in the days before the riot.

National Archives releases 82,000 pages of Emails Joe Biden Sent or Received on Three Private Pseudonym Accounts. It going to be interesting to see what’s in those e-mails.

To date, there is no indication from the National Archives in the court case that any of Biden’s email contain classified information. However, the president is under criminal investigation by Special Counsel Robert Hur for taking classified documents from his time as vice president and as a senator and storing them improperly in insecure locations in the garage of his Delaware home and a think tank office he kept in Washington D.C.

Raskin caught lying . Again. Claims all investigation into Joe and Hunter was dropped. Actually what happened was that the US Attorney gave it to Barr who passed it on to the Investigation being done by the US Attorney in Delaware. Here’s what the US Attorney out of Pittsburgh said about Raskin’s comments.

Brady was asked about Raskin’s characterization of his team’s work, he described it as “not true.” He added that he and his team found there to be sufficient “indicia of credibility in this 1023 to pass it on to an office that had a predicated grand jury investigation.”

He said, “I think they were very concerned about any information sharing with our office,” and noted that “it was regularly a challenge to interact with the investigative team from Delaware.”

Newsguard Case Highlights the Pentagon’s Censorship End-Around.

Newsguard Case Highlights the Pentagon’s Censorship End-Around.

The Consortium News lawsuit against a private news rating system lays out how the government can suppress speech by proxy.

By MATT TAIBBI

Monday, the independent website Consortium News filed suit against the United States of America and Newsguard Technologies. The complaint targeting both the government and a private media ratings service is an important one, putting the censorship-by-proxy system on trial.

On September 7, 2021, the U.S. Department of Defense gave an award of $749,387 to Newsguard Technologies, a private service that scores media outlets on “reliability” and “trust.” According to the suit, roughly 40,000 subscribers buy Newsguard subscriptions, getting in return a system of “Nutrition Labels” supposedly emphasizing “safe” content. Importantly, Newsguard’s customers include universities and libraries, whose users are presented with labels warning you that CBS is great and Tucker Carlson is dangerous:

Consortium News was labeled a purveyor of “disinformation,” “misinformation,” and “false content,” and, worst of all, “anti-U.S.” This is despite the fact that, according to the suit, Newsguard only flagged six articles out of the tens of thousands Consortium News has published since the late award-winning reporter Robert Parry founded it in 1995. As Consortium News points out, Newsguard downgrades its entire 20,000+ library of available online articles with these flags based on the handful of edge cases, all of which involve criticism of U.S. foreign policy.

A particular irony is that Parry, a decorated AP and Newsweek reporter, founded Consortium News specifically to address topics suppressed by mainstream editors. Now Parry’s old site is being downgraded for dissenting reports on subjects like the 2014 Ukrainian coup and neo-Nazism in Ukraine, coincidentally topics that are “the subject of NewsGuard’s ‘Misinformation Fingerprints’ project that is under contract with the Cyber Command,” as the suit reads.

Newsguard denies it’s influenced by the government. In fact, its denials are part of the reason for the suit. When Michael Shellenberger and I testified before Congress in March, we mentioned Newsguard as a “government-funded” ratings service. I was quickly contacted by email by co-CEO Gordon Crovitz, who hastened to correct me: Newsguard isn’t government-funded, but merely an organization that receives government funds. He wrote:

As is public, our work for the Pentagon’s Cyber Command is focused on the identification and analysis of information operations targeting the US and its allies conducted by hostile governments, including Russia and China.

Our analysts alert officials in the US and in other democracies, including Ukraine, about new false narratives targeting America and its allies, and we provide an understanding of how this disinformation spreads online. We are proud of our work countering Russian and Chinese disinformation on behalf of Western democracies.

Crovitz added that “contrary to claims made in the hearings, we oppose any government involvement in rating news sources,” saying Newsguard “is entirely independent and free of any outside influence, including from the U.S. or any other government.”

The letter, CC’ed to co-CEO and editor Stephen Brill, was subject lined “Inaccuracies relating to NewsGuard.” I immediately wrote back:

Crovitz didn’t answer at the time, but Newsguard did simultaneously release the letter to the UK-based Press-Gazette. When I reached out for comment again after the filing of this litigation this week, asking once again how “government-funded” could be inaccurate, Crovitz finally answered, writing:

“We are ‘government funded’ in the same way that Verizon is ‘government funded: We have licensed data to the government for a fee, just as Verizon has provided telco services for a fee.”

He added:

The government pays us both for our commercial offerings. Our Pentagon contract is a single-digit percent of our revenues.

So, they are government-funded, just not wholly government-funded. These are the people rating others on accuracy, remember.

The conceit about funding isn’t complicated, but it works. Because Newsguard has other customers, it can claim to be an “independent” news service that just happens to downgrade news reports that contradict and/or criticize the policy of its major client, the Department of Defense. It’s censorship, but through a silencer. As the Consortium News suit reads:

NewsGuard and the United States in violation of the First Amendment are carrying out a governmental program under the “Misinformation Fingerprints” contract to publicly label, target and stigmatize news organizations as disfavored, unreliable, as journalistically not responsible… where said organizations differ or dissent from U.S. policy.

The suit also details what I think is the more insidious part of the system. In the guise of an independent news service, Newsguard contacts outlets and interrogates them about disputed content, not-so-subtly pressing for retractions. Again, from the suit:

In the course of the government contract, NewsGuard and the United States have acted to retaliate against those news entities and media organizations that refuse to retract or correct their articles; such retaliation consists of the “false content” warnings, the red flag and associated content described in this Amended Complaint…

Racket received one of these irritating queries this year. Call it what you want, but it comes down to Pentagon Cyber Command giving a big check to “analysts” who happen to slap red revenue-sapping warning tags on outlets that report on controversial topics like war or government censorship.

As I wrote to Newsguard when they contacted me, “media outlets should gain and lose trust based on how they are evaluated by audiences, not paid services.” This system allows institutions like the Department of Defense that have no legal remit to meddle in the domestic news landscape to pressure private media outlets.

That’s over and above the DoD’s already hugest-on-earth-by-far public relations budget. Think of the scale of petty determination one must have to spend over $500 million a year on messaging and be so dissatisfied with the results that you feel the need to spend more on private services that downgrade independent news critics. It’s particularly grating that your tax dollars are spent hiring private services that label news outlets using terms like “anti-US.” State-sponsored impugning of patriotism is a bold stroke, even by the low moral standards of the anti-disinformation era.

“When media groups are condemned by the government as ‘anti-U.S.’,” said Bruce Afran, attorney for Consortium News, “the result is self-censorship and a destruction of the public debate intended by the First Amendment.”

I was remiss in not getting this story up before but will have more as the case goes on.

Consortium News is seeking “a permanent injunction… barring the government and NewsGuard from continuing such practices” and “more than $13 million in damages for defamation and civil rights violations.”  You can read their coverage here.

It’s not US VS. THEM, It’s You VS. US.

Views: 63

Recently a moderator on one of the new disqus house channels has decided to join fellow cultist in going after me and several other Conservatives. Disqus has been made aware of it’s personal hatred and name calling towards those who disagree with it.

It has a new group of friends ( being an all star has nothing to do with it.) Speaking of all stars, his feelings towards Conservative all stars.

People need to stop calling everyone my “friends” – It’s annoying and presumptive. Having a legacy All Star star doesn’t mean we’re friends – there are some super conservative people with Stars that I wouldn’t give the time of day, socially.  http://disq.us/p/2waxs6p

And what do his new found friends think of the disqus house channel it mods on? Here’s a little snippet.

Editor’s Note: Periodically, Jaye and I pop into the Disqus 2.0 shitholes Channels so you don’t have to. 

Now this moderator even uses the cultists phrase of us vs, them. Meaning that Conservative articles (mainly mine) is Conservative VS. Cultist  Progressive.  It gets upset claiming that I only give one side. When do Progressives give the other side?

I will even use Liberal websites and I give the links so you can see the whole story. Do progressives do the same? This moderator has a hard on against the right. Maybe he’ll come here and explain why it has such hatred.

I use it because I don’t know if the Moderator is male or female.

State of Michigan Holds ‘Harm Reduction’ Conference Denouncing ‘Whiteness’.

State of Michigan Holds ‘Harm Reduction’ Conference Denouncing ‘Whiteness’.

By ALANA MASTRANGELO

Michigan’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) held a conference in May regarding “harm reduction” that featured a panel on denouncing “whiteness.”

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services’ Viral Hepatitis unit, which holds an annual “harm reduction” conference, featured a workshop at this year’s event in May, titled, “Decentering Whiteness: An Equity-Based Approach.”

A description of the workshop said it explores “biases that black and non-black people of color participants encounter while accessing medical and social services,” as well as “how these biases enter the employment space and create barriers for black, brown, indigenous, people of color (BIPOC) individuals to achieve their highest potentials.”

“The workshop will also explore bias, medical mistrust, generational trauma, white colonialist systems, and radical inclusion,” the description added.

A slide at the beginning of the presentation for the workshop warned audience members to “Be responsible for the energy YOU bring to this SPACE,” adding, “Hard truths will be discussed.”

The presentation went on to claim it is a “myth” that the “birth of a nation” began with Christopher Columbus discovering America, pilgrims setting, and then winning independence from England through the revolution.

 

 

Instead, the presentation, which referred to North America as “Turtle Island,” claimed the nation was born from “violent land seizure, genocide of the indigenous populations,” and “economic development through forced labor of kidnapped and enslaved Africans.”

The presentation also called on people to “decolonize harm reduction,” and urged organizations to fire any “overt racist / transphobic / homophobic staff,” and “hold dissenters accountable.”

The conference also had a panel on “sex workers” that featured porn star Lotus Lain, and emphasized “the need for sex workers on the front lines of harm reduction and social justice.”

Jessica Chastain Pleads for Help to Find a Credible News Source After NYT and WaPo ‘Rushed to Conclusion’ over Gaza Hospital Blast. So this sweet young thing doesn’t know where to go when it comes to a news source that gives her fair and balanced news.

All she has to do is follow me and she’ll get that. But if not, there are Conservative news outlets out there that won’t openly lie to her.. Here’s what she had to say.

Interstellar star Jessica Chastain is pleading with the public for help to find credible news sources after the New York Times and Washington Post “rushed to conclusion” in response to the Gaza hospital blast on Tuesday.

“Is there ANY place that I can get accurate news? We are living in a dark time when giants like @nytimes and @washingtonpost rush to conclusions in trying to keep pace with social media,” Chastain wrote in a social media post on Wednesday.

WP asks white folks to stand aside for California’s Senate seat.

A opinion piece writer in the Washington Post is asking the two white candidates to step aside and allow a person of color to be the Democrat candidate.

https://twitter.com/jeremycarl4/status/1714323884764512539?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1714323884764512539%7Ctwgr%5E7ddf23bef35a436192597f4e2b1d5d57444d87c0%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2023%2F10%2Fidentity-politics-katie-porter-adam-schiff-urged-drop%2F

From the writer.

California’s Democratic leaders have an opportunity to do more than pay lip service to their rhetoric around diversity. It wouldn’t hurt to remind them that Harris gave up one of California’s seats to serve the country. They need to know, and show, that forcing genuine equality isn’t easy or comfortable. It requires hard decisions, especially for White people who might have to disappoint their friends or sacrifice their egos and ambitions for the sake of the larger cause.

NYC pays $200K to girl sexually abused, videotaped by Brooklyn HS boys — and school admins fueled ‘dangerous environment’: lawsuit

Views: 12

NYC pays $200K to girl sexually abused, videotaped by Brooklyn HS boys — and school admins fueled ‘dangerous environment’: lawsuit.

Administrators at a Brooklyn high school never punished a group of teen boys who sexually assaulted a female classmate and recorded the abuse, fueling the “dangerous environment” that allowed it to happen, according to a recently-settled lawsuit.

A 14-year-old freshman at Transit Tech High School was forced to perform oral sex in front of other attackers — who recorded it with their cell phones and posted it to social media including TikTok and Snapchat, the suit alleged.

Transit Tech “created a dangerous school environment that condoned sexual abuse and harassment, particularly by a group of offenders who have been allowed to engage in similar despicable conduct without effective reprimand or discipline,” said the suit, filed in Brooklyn federal court by the girl’s mother.

“School officials simply raised their hands and turned their backs on this vulnerable student, encouraging (her) to leave the school, …  and allowed the students who abused her to remain at Transit.”

The suit cites a “climate of harassment” at the East New York career and technical school – especially against girls, who make up just 15% of its 797 students.

State data on violent and disruptive incidents in schools shows two sexual offenses and one assault at Transit Tech in 2021-22.

The state also cited 14 reports of discrimination, intimidation, taunting, harassment, or bullying, and 12 cases of drug possession or sales.

The lawsuit names Marlon Bynum, the principal, and Janice Ross, superintendent of Brooklyn North high schools, charging they “were aware that female students were regularly harassed and subjected to abuse and that sexual activity was occurring within the school.”

On Aug. 4, the city agreed to pay a $200,000 settlement, The Post learned. After attorney fees, the girl, now 15, will receive $132,170 when she turns 18.

“No amount of money will compensate my daughter for what she had to go through, and is still going through as a victim of sexual assault,” the girl’s mother told The Post, which is withholding her name to protect the child’s privacy.

Janice Ross, the superintendent of Brooklyn North high schools, was named in the lawsuit.

The sickening assault — which was not reported publicly at the time — occurred on Oct. 21, 2021, as the girl walked to class through an isolated staircase.

She told cops one boy “pushed her head down” onto another boy, while a third recorded the sex act and posted it on social media, NYPD records show.

She immediately reported the attack.

The NYPD arrested two boys, charging one with criminal sexual assault, a felony, and the other with offensive display, a misdemeanor, records show.

But the charges were dropped a week later after the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office declined to prosecute.

The suit cites a “climate of harassment” at the East New York career and technical school – especially against girls, who make up just 15% of its 797 students.

The office does not comment on cases involving juveniles.

“Kids are kids,” the girl’s mother quoted the principal as telling her the next day, she said in sworn testimony.

A DOE report on the incident said “video footage is available.”

But the school erased the school’s surveillance tape before he asked for it, said the girl’s lawyer, Kevin Mosley.

“The cover-up is beyond belief,” Mosley told The Post. “The authorities did not take her seriously.”

About a week after the assault, the girl’s mother received an unsigned email from the DOE saying, “We have … determined that the behavior that was the subject of the investigation did not violate Chancellor’s Regulation A-832,” which prohibits student-on-student discrimination, sexual harassment, intimidation and bullying.

The attackers remained at Transit Tech.

The girl’s parents transferred her to another school.

She “was forced to leave …in fear of her own safety,” suffering physically, emotionally and academically, the suit said. Her attendance and grades fell that year, and she needed counseling.

A city Law Department spokesman said only, “This settlement was in the best interests of the parties.” Bynum, Ross and a DOE spokesman had no response.

The Transit Tech suit comes after another female student at prestigious Brooklyn Tech HS — also under Ross’s supervision — sued the DOE last December, charging administrators botched a probe of horrific sex harassment — erasing nude photos that a boy student used to threaten and blackmail the girl.

In that suit, which is pending, the girl’s parents begged the school to keep their daughter safe from the boy, but he continued to attend Brooklyn Tech after his arrest and while on probation.
