WATCH: Volunteers Kicked Out of Nat’l Park for Cleaning It During Shutdown—Without a Permit

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Volunteers were kicked off a national park this week because they were picking up trash and didn’t fill out the proper paper work to do so.

As the government shutdown enters week five, debris, trash, and snow are piling up at national parks across the country as the bureaucrats who get paid to maintain them stay home. Luckily, however, volunteers from all walks of life have stepped up to fill their shoes and they’ve been doing a fantastic job—that is, when the government isn’t kicking them out.

LEAK: ‘Huge Teams’ Engaged in Manual Interventions on Google Search Results

by Allum Bokhari, Breitbart:

Google has “huge teams” working on manual interventions in search results, an apparent contradiction of sworn testimony made to Congress by CEO Sundar Pichai, according to an internal post leaked to Breitbart News.

“There are subjects that are prone to hyperbolic content, misleading information, and offensive content,” said Daniel Aaronson, a member of Google’s Trust & Safety team.

‘THE SMOKING GUN’: Google Manipulated YouTube Search Results for Abortion, Maxine Waters, David Hogg

by Allum Bokhari, Breitbart:

In sworn testimony, Google CEO Sundar Pichai told Congress last month that his company does not “manually intervene” on any particular search result. Yet an internal discussion thread leaked to Breitbart News reveals Google regularly intervenes in search results on its YouTube video platform – including a recent intervention that pushed pro-life videos out of the top ten search results for “abortion.”

The term “abortion” was added to a “blacklist” file for “controversial YouTube queries,” which contains a list of search terms that the company considers sensitive. According to the leak, these include some of these search terms related to: abortion, abortions, the Irish abortion referendum, Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters, and anti-gun activist David Hogg.

Alternative Media Companies Unite in Inspiring Rally Against Corporate, Gov’t Censorship

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Over the weekend, members and owners of multiple alternative media outlets gathered in Houston, Texas to discuss the heavy hand of corporate and government censorship and how to stop it. The meeting was a success with the common theme of peaceful voices refusing to be silenced.

For those who remember, on October 11, 2018, Facebook and Twitter — without warning or justification — deleted the pages of Free Thought Project and Police the Police which had over 5 million followers. During this purge, they also removed hundreds of other pages who had massive followings like the Antimedia, Cop Block, and Filming Cops.

The American Psychological Association Issues New Guidelines That Say “Traditional Masculinity Can Hurt Boys”

0

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

Should we be teaching young boys to reject traditional masculinity?  According to the American Psychological Association, that is precisely what we should be doing.  In this day and age, “traditional masculinity” has been renamed “toxic masculinity”, and an all-out attempt is being made to eradicate traditional forms of male behavior from our society.  We see this happening in our classrooms, we see this happening in popular culture, and lately this new agenda is being constantly pushed by the mainstream media.  For example, the New York Times just published a piece about the new guidelines for men that the American Psychological Association recently issued.  Their article was entitled “Traditional Masculinity Can Hurt Boys, Say New A.P.A. Guidelines”, and it suggests that we need to totally redefine what it means “to be a man”…

HOW MISDEMEANORS TURN INNOCENT PEOPLE INTO CRIMINALS

by Jordan Smith, The Intercept:

GAIL ATWATER AND her two young children were driving home from soccer practice in March 1997 when they realized that a rubber bat that was usually affixed to the window of their pickup truck was missing. It was a favorite toy of Atwater’s 3-year-old, Mac, so the trio turned around, retracing their route to see if they could find it.

Atwater slowed to a speed of roughly 15 miles per hour as she cruised through Lago Vista, the lakeside bedroom community just northwest of Austin, Texas. And although state law required passengers in the front seat of a truck to wear a seatbelt, Atwater told her kids they could unbuckle themselves so they could look outside for the toy. There was no one else on the road, and she was driving very slowly.

The War Against America’s Only Anti-War Candidate

by Gordon Duff, New Eastern Outlook:

Born in American Samoa, Representative (Major) Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, a Democrat and, far more than Trump, someone who stands against hypocrisy and fakery of every kind, is now running for President of the United States. Unlike Trump or Clinton or Obama or Romney or so many, Tulsi is military, a decorated combat veteran.

Unlike all of them, she is openly against war as a basis for American “diplomacy.”

Gabbard continues to serve as a Major in the Army National Guard after two combat tours in Iraq, one in 2004 as enlisted and a second as a platoon commander in 2009.

Dishonest Dems now trying to change election rules nationwide to make sure they can never lose again

by Vicki Batts, via DC Clothesline:

(Natural News) Congressional Democrats are now looking to dismantle the Constitution and radically change the nation’s electoral process. Naturally, all of the changes proposed by liberal politicians serve to benefit the Democratic party, and undermine the core principles upon which the United States was founded. Just when you start to think the American Left couldn’t get any more disgraceful, they go prove you wrong. The Constitution was designed to protect the citizens of the United States from tyranny and to limit government power, and it is clear that the left-wing is trying to change that.
