Censorship Is More Dangerous Than Hate Speech

 Al Gore Might Want to Oppose the Prosecution of Exxon  The Left is heading into dangerous legal waters. In recent months, leftist attorneys general from blue states like New York and Massachusetts have been trying to build a case against Exxon Mobile Corp. Massachusetts AG Maura Healey demanded Exxon hand over 40 years of documents related to the company's climate change research in an effort to build a case that the company committed fraud because it's a "climate change denier." Exxon, of course, is fighting the subpoena, saying handing over mountains of banker boxes infringes on its First Amendment rights.
          In effect, the leftist AGs are pushing for the criminalization of dissent. But that cuts both ways. Climate change may or may not be occurring, and the cause — whether it's human industry or the climate's natural cycle — is up for debate. Responding to the prosecution of Exxon, 13 AGs from red states penned a letter that pointed out if the Left wants to prosecute anyone who doesn't believe socialism is the response to warmer weather, global warming activists could be prosecuted for overstating the threat.
          "We all understand the need for a healthy environment, but we represent a wide range of viewpoints regarding the extent to which man contributes to climate change and the costs and benefits of any proposed fix," read the letter headed by Alabama AG Luther Strange and Texas AG Ken Paxton. "Nevertheless, we agree on at least one thing — this is not a question for the courts. Using law enforcement authority to resolve a public policy debate undermines the trust invested in our offices and threatens free speech."
          While the conservative AGs said in the letter they would not mount such a prosecution, the same legal logic could lead to the prosecution of climate change activists who advocate for the redistribution of taxpayer money to green energy companies — like failed solar energy company Solyndra. For example, Al Gore made statements that were demonstrably false in "An Inconvenient Truth" and he's continued to double-down on the Chicken Little rhetoric. Is it just a coincidence that he's a senior partner in a venture-capital firm that invests in clean energy technology?

 The Coronation of liar-Hilly Clinton 
Robin Smith: Bickering on the Right manifested itself clearly in the field of 17 GOP presidential contenders. Of course, 16 of these wanna-be-nominees fell to the sensationalism of Donald Trump, who as we highlighted from the beginning personified the anger and betrayal of the American working class. You know, "them." The ones who've had their fill of excuses on illegal immigration, deficit spending and the on-again-off-again repeal of nObamaCare all showered with the lexicon of political correctness that permits a reckless Barack nObama to operate unchallenged.
          But let's point the hot spotlight on the sideshow on the Left that should be center stage.
          Imagine the script written for this presidential election for liar-Hilly Rodham Clinton. A woman betrayed by her philandering husband in front of the entire world, yet she stood silent — well, except for slandering her husband's many accusers. She was elected to the U.S. Senate of one of the most powerful states in our nation, New York, solely on her résumé of having married Bill, and all to prepare for her own presidential bid. In 2008, for a second time, this icon of the feminist Left was upstaged by a smooth-talking, charismatic male who ruined her plan to be the first female president in U.S. history. Accepting a gesture of symbolic unity, this ambitious woman served as secretary of state for four years with the obvious claim laid, once again, to make history in the presidential race.
          That script, with a cast of characters that has been on cue with each key element, is being played out in the American Playhouse of Presidential Elections with one exception. An unexpected spoiler, Bernie Sanders, stole the punch lines, showed up with the action scenes and dominated the dialogue.
          But the liar-Hilly Clinton Coronation support cast is extensive. Let's review a couple of key characters.
          Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee chair, has been on her mark with each and every defense of liar-Hilly and her obstruction of Bernie Sanders. A recently leaked DNC memo completely substantiates Sanders' claims of a coordinated coronation of liar-Hilly with a full disregard for anything that remotely resembles a true primary challenge. Not that the fix wasn't painfully evident to anyone paying attention...
          There's been a surprise twist, however, for the faithful Chairman Wasserman Schultz in her sudden role as a scapegoat. The off-script explosion of "The Bern" caught the well-rehearsed troupe off guard. Sanders is all but officially out of the race at this point. But with his voice supported by millions of Democrat primary voters, Wasserman Schultz is now facing blame for the mistreatment of the Sanders camp, despite the otherwise line-by-line performance of the liar-Clinton Coronation script.
          Remember those debates set for weekend nights when only agoraphobics were homebound to see? Recall how few times the Democrats took the stage as compared to the Republican battle among more candidates than an entire rugby scrum? All of those little details were written into the screenplay as the underlying purpose of Chairman Wasserman Schultz, simply to rig all to the favor of liar-Hilly.
          Being an essential ensemble in the storyline, the national media has been faithful. Providing just enough coverage of Bernie and his socialist band of entitled victims while absolutely skirting liar-Hilly's status as an accused felon derelict in her duty to her country. Awards await the brilliance of linguistic gymnastics flawlessly executed to create an amnesic fog around the coffin-draped caskets of the innocents who died in Benghazi after both Barack nObama and liar-Hilly Clinton refused "that 3 am call" pleading for aid and rescue in the midst of September 11, 2012.
          The liar-Clinton Corruption Production Company guaranteed, through careful scripting, that she couldn't lose the nomination.
          The "super delegates" unique to the DNC were not in the cast, but were smartly planted in the American Playhouse audience to secure applause and thunderous support despite the unquestioned frailties of a candidate who could simply not win on her own.
          But the backstory giving this production its heft and believability is the unparalleled corruption of big-dollar donations to the liar-Clinton Foundation that yielded access and favoritism to our tax dollars through the State Department and other agencies carefully maneuvered by both liar-Hilly and her charming lead man, Bill. There's nothing like obtaining power through raw extortion.
          liar-Hilly Clinton may be smart. But as the principal performer in this epic presentation, it has taken a multi-million-dollar budget, extensive casting and exhaustive coordination to pull of her stand atop the heap that remains of the Democrat Party.
          As the credits roll, let's not forget a few of the critical stagehands that have made some of liar-Hilly's survival possible. Those dedicated pleasers of the media, the ever-present-always-adaptable "mavericks" — select members of the Republican incumbency. They fear the criticism of the Leftmedia more than the GOP base, and they have gone above and beyond their duties to ensure the infighting on the Right takes top billing and the ability of nObama to continue to operate unscathed to usher in his third-term successor is unhindered.
          Sure, the Republican primary has had its entertainment value. But the award-winning choreography and staging on the Left should be extoled for its rigging of the coronation of liar-Hilly Clinton — the first female nominee for president of the U.S. ... and the first felon (whether she's convicted or not) in our nation's history.
          Just as William Shakespeare declared, "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players..." Especially in Democrat politics. -The Patriot Post

Israel's Socialist Dreams vs. Capitalist Realities

{meforum.org} ~ A colorful legend holds that when God offered the Torah to the Israelites at Mt. Sinai, they were reluctant to accept it. God then lifted the mountain over their heads in a threatening manner, mak-ing them an offer they could not refuse. They reconsidered... The saga of economic liberalism, some-times dubbed "neoliberal-ism," and Israeli economic growth bears some similarities to that legend. Modern Israel has developed into something of an economic miracle, largely as a result of economic liberalization, driven by entrepreneurship, innovation, investment, and the accumulation of human capital. Yet Israelis have never been entirely comfortable with economic liberalism and indeed are by and large hostile to it. Like their wandering ancestors, they have benefitted in spite of their disinclinations...  http://www.meforum.org/6046/israel-socialist-dreams-capitalist-realities

{wnd.com} ~ Two firebrands in the community of evangelical Christians, former Rep. Michele Bachmann and Family Talk radio founder James Dobson, have been included in a special faith advisory panel announced Tuesday by presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump... Trump’s campaign said the board will provide advisory support on issues important to evangelical Christians and other people of faith. The board also will lead “a much larger Faith and Cultural Advisory Committee” that will be announced later this month, the campaign said. The campaign said the appointments are an expression of Trump’s desire to have access to wise counsel, not necessarily an endorsement of Trump by the individual Christian leaders...

{rickwells.us} ~ They’ll never admit to the truth, as it’s a foreign concept to them, but the subversives running America into the ground are clearly working to destroy what’s left of our representative government... nObama, hanoi-Kerry, Jeh Johnson, Valerie Jarrett, liar-Hilly Clinton and the rest of the subversives are after totalitarian, dictatorial rule and a theocracy under Sharia Law is one way for them to get and keep it. The fact that the entire regime “leadership” is composed of terrorist sympathizers and are allies of the Muslim Brotherhood and other terrorist organizations indicates, in conjunction with their actions, that their goal is to impose an Islamic caliphate upon the world. The destruction of the United States is a critical component in that pursuit. The fundamental transformation that Hussein nObama is so enamored with is the process of Islamification and social degradation. It is the erosion of our culture, our American heritage and values and most critically, a de-Christianization, taking place right before our eyes. Swift Boat hanoi-Kerry gave a speech to mark one of those made up holidays that only exist as a tool for the furtherance of their agenda, the kind of holiday the leftists never fail to recognize. This time it was World Refugee Day, a made up propaganda tool of the UN intended to enhance their image and portray the ongoing conquest of the West by Islamist hordes as a worthy humanitarian effort...  http://rickwells.us/kerry-no-evidence-terrorist-affiliated-refugees-dangerous/

{rickwells.us} ~ Hussein nObama may want to pretend that he has a strategy for dealing with ISIS in Africa and elsewhere but his nominee to command US forces on that continent, Lt Gen Thomas Waldhauser, isn’t willing to tell that lie on his behalf, at least not at this time... In questioning before the Senate Armed Services Committee, its chairman, John McCain asked, “Do we have a strategy for Libya or are we just acting in an ad hoc fashion, which has been the case as we’ve watched ISIS establish, metastasize and grow in Libya?” Waldhauser attempted to respond by identifying the “two strategic objectives” but that didn’t fly and  McCain interrupted, redirecting the nominee back to the question regarding a strategy. Waldhauser replied directly, “I am not aware of any grand strategy overall at this point.” That’s a stinging indictment of this anti-America regime, the fact that we’re five years on since liar-Hilly Clinton had Gaddafi killed and nObama still hasn’t figured out how to get a grip on the situation. Then again, maybe he’s got it figured out perfectly, from the point of what’s best for his Islamic terrorist foot soldiers...  http://rickwells.us/general-doesnt-back-up-obamas-fantasy-assessments-on-isis/

He notes in doing so that everything that has been put forward in the days following the attack have been obvious and lame attempts to vilify guns and gun owners and deceive the American people into believing that the problems is our Second Amendment. It’s the same nObama talking points that he and the Democrat authoritarians press with each of these incidents. They are completely ignoring the Islamic component, something that Whittle points out vividly. He also notes that while Hussein nObama may declare that we are not at war with that unnamed theocratic thuggery, they most certainly are at war with us. Whittle gives a graphic display of the various nations, religions and other groups that are targeted by the Islamists. He notes that for them there are only two groups, those who submit to Islam and those who refuse and who they are at war with...  http://rickwells.us/bill-whittle-educates-obama-obvious-regime-disinformation/

He said so in 2014 when he took over as chairman of the board at the ethics watchdog Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). Brock is also founder of the liberal propaganda group Media Matters. Media Matters has long served as the attack dog of any reporters, news outlets, politicians, interests, whistleblowers or ideas perceived as threatening to the narrative as established by President nObama, liar-Clinton and other Democrat interests. While CREW always leaned decidedly left, and apparently receives the lion’s share if not all of its funding from liberal donors and fundraisers, CREW won respect over the years by not being afraid to sometimes go after ethically-challenged Democrats as well as Republicans. Former Rep. Anthony Weiner and Rep. Charles Rangel, both Democrats, were among CREW’s targets...

{gatestoneinstitute.org} ~ For all his claims to the contrary, there can be little doubt that Russian President Vladimir Putin will be taking a keen interest in the outcome of Britain's historic referendum on its membership of the European Union on Thursday... The Kremlin's official line is that Moscow has no interest in whether the British people decide to leave or remain a member of the 28-state economic and political union. And in his first public comment on the vote last weekend. Mr Putin said the decision was "the business of the people of the UK," even though he could not help having a gratuitous swipe at British Prime Minister David Cameron, accusing him of trying to "blackmail Europe" by calling the vote. But even though the Kremlin's official position is that it is observing a strict neutrality on the outcome, the reality is that there is nothing that would please Mr Putin more than a British vote in favour of Brexit...

Censorship Is More Dangerous Than Hate Speech

{townhall.com} ~ Someone needs to tell Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, YouTube and the European Union that the only way to stop a bad guy's speech is to counter it with a good guy's speech, not censor it.

Recently, the internet giants took on the role of internet speech police when they agreed to monitor and combat so-called "hate speech" for the EU. No word on how they define hate speech.

I suspect the whole EU hate speech argument is less about preventing terrorist attacks, as they propose, and more about culling criticism of their immigration and refugee policies.

Oh, the hypocrisy of those who brag about their "open-mindedness" in one breath and cry about censorship in the next. The only acceptable speech is that which is pleasing to their ears or palatable to their particular ideology, while supporting the prosecution of people for their personal opinions or religious beliefs, especially if those opinions and beliefs do not fall in line with theirs.
It sure sounds an awful lot like totalitarianism to me.

It takes you back to a quote from George Orwell's novel "Nineteen Eighty-Four." There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time.

But any rate, they could plug in your wire whenever they wanted to. You had to live -- did live, from habit that became instinct -- in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.

Here in the U.S., the First Amendment covers all speech. Yes, folks, even hate speech. Speakers shouldn't be banned from universities unless a university's intention is to ban free thought. The same goes for talking about climate change, Californians. And what the Bible says about marriage, liberals.

It's pretty telling that you rarely find conservatives, known for their deep respect for free speech, charging liberals with "Constitutionphobia" or "Christianphobia" or "babyphobia" or whatever phobia might be applied to those with whom they disagree.

The way I see it, the dangers of censorship far outweigh the dangers of hate speech. Even still, we march closer to it every time we bend a knee to political correctness. You don't have to live in a totalitarian state to be controlled by totalitarianism. We're not there yet, but we're sure headed in that direction.

If we believe in the right to free speech, we also must believe in the right to offend. That means that building a wall isn't xenophobia. Believing in traditional marriage is not homophobia. And fundamentally disagreeing with President nObama's policies is by no means racism.

By the way, the Bible is pro-free speech too. But, it's also about accountability. Jesus said in Matthew 12:36 that "every careless word" we speak we will "give an accounting for it in the day of judgment." So maybe we should occupy our time considering our own words rather than censoring others.
