Faith Organizations Fight Anti-Conservative Censorship

The Family Research Council (FRC) and the American Family Association (AFA) are joining ranks with SPLCexposed.com, blasting the anti-Christian and anti-conservative media and tech industry and its alliance with the hate-mongering Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). A joint ad buy in the Wall Street Journal slammed SPLC as the real hate group after the organization declared FRC and AFA as “hate groups” for promoting Christian family values. The ad specifically urges Spotify, YouTube, Amazon, PayPal, CNN, and MSNBC to stop using SPLC “as their authority on hate and extremism.” Read more…

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Organizations promoting family and faith have purchased an ad in the Wall Street Journal that calls upon media and tech industry giants to stop aligning themselves with the disgraced Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) smears of conservative and Christian groups.

Family Research Council (FRC) purchased the ad in conjunction with the American Family Association (AFA) and in cooperation with SPLCexposed.com. The SPLC has declared both FRC and AFA as “hate groups” because of their promotion of Christian family and sexuality values.

The SPLC – notorious for its labeling of many conservative and Christian organizations as “hate groups” – has recently been accused of racism, corruption, and sexual harassment by employees, and several of the group’s top leaders have left the SPLC in the wake of those accusations.

MSM Suffering Post-Mueller Ratings Meltdown

MSNBC and CNN are barely hanging on in the wake of viewer backlash over the Mueller Report, which found no collusion between the Trump team and the Kremlin. According to the latest numbers from Nielsen Media Research for the first week of April, CNN had its second-worst rated week of the year in total day ratings. On the other hand, MSNBC had its second-lowest rated week of the year in its key demographic, viewers 25-54 years old. CNN failed to even beat Home and Garden TV or Nickelodeon. Read more…

Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

MSNBC and CNN’s ratings have not recovered from a massive drop after special counsel Robert Mueller concluded his investigation into Russia collusion.

CNN delivered its second-lowest rated week of the year in total day and primetime between April 1 to April 7, according to Nielsen Media Research, while MSNBC had its second-lowest rated week of the year in the key 25-54 age demographic.

PRIMETIME RATINGS:

1. FNC (2,339,000)
2. MSNBC (1,642,000)
3. HOME AND GARDEN TV (1,223,000)
4. USA NETWORK (1,153,000)
5. TBS NETWORK (1,033,000)

TOTAL DAY RATINGS:

1. FNC (1,345,000)
2. MSNBC (890,000)
3. HOME AND GARDEN TV (715,000)
4. NICKELODEON (702,000)
5. INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY (698,000)

CNN finished 15th in primetime and 8th in total day, falling to Home and Garden TV (HGTV) and Nickelodeon.

Last week’s poor ratings for CNN and MSNBC indicate the networks will have a difficult time bouncing back after spending two years of heavy coverage on the investigation into the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with the Russian government.

CNN and MSNBC Viewers Turn on Fox

The MSM conspiracy theorists are being taken to task with the latest numbers revealing that CNN and MSNBC are losing their audiences in droves…to Fox News. Rachel Maddow, for instance, lost half a million viewers between the Monday before the report and the following Monday. She has since proceeded to lose another 200,000 viewers per day. On the other hand, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson dominated CNN, beating their entire prime time lineup combined by more than 1,000,000 viewers. Read more…

Here’s more from American Thinker…

Karma has come calling at CNN and MSNBC, the avid broadcast-promoters of the Russia hoax. Viewers who deserted the conspiracy theorists after it turned out that Mueller reported no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia are staying away and — even worse! — migrating to Fox News.

Mike Brest writes at the Daily Caller:

BC primetime host Rachel Maddow brought in her worst weekly ratings of the year last week, following the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

News broke of Robert Mueller submitting his conclusion to Attorney General William Barr shortly before the close of business on Friday, March 22. Last week’s television ratings were the first full week of coverage since the conclusion of the investigation into whether or not the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials.

Chris Matthews: 2020 Could be Nixon-McGovern Repeat

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews sounded the alarm that the Democratic Party is veering too far left in its pursuit of young and minority voters by selecting the most progressive candidate. He compared the upcoming 2020 presidential election campaign to that of the 1972 presidential election between incumbent President Richard Nixon (R) and Democratic presidential nominee Senator George McGovern (D-SD). Nixon won by a landslide. Per Matthews’ analysis, this had more to do with the Democrats at the time pandering too far left with progressive identity politics, which, in turn, moved their more moderate supporters to the right. “One, almost half the Democratic Party electorate is either moderate or conservative. In other words, to the right of the Progressives…Bottom line: Going into the Democratic primaries is not the same as going to the country.” Read more…

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews offered his take on the Democratic Party’s drift to the far-left, which he warned could have an impact on the 2020 presidential election.

Matthews reminded voters of the 1972 presidential election between incumbent President Richard Nixon and then-Democratic presidential nominee Sen. George McGovern (D-SD). Nixon won in a landslide, taking 49 states and 60% of the popular vote.

He suggested such a scenario could be possible in 2020 if Democrats nominated a far-left candidate to go up against President Donald Trump in 2020.

“I have been thinking about who is going to take back the White House, who’s going to win the Democratic nomination next spring then go on to defeat Donald Trump in November 2020,” he said.

“Unplanned” Breaks the Box Office Competition

“Unplanned,” a biopic following the journey of Planned Parenthood defector Abby Johnson to become one of the most highly recognized pro-life activists against her former employer, has exceeded all liberal expectations. Not only has the film brought in more than $6M in its opening weekend, but it is expected to reach #5 at the box office. This success comes despite getting hit with an R rating, MPAA and TV networks refusing to host the film’s ads, and even a Twitter shutdown “error” the weekend of the release. “I’m grateful that God, through His providence, planted me here to tell my story-and that I have the privilege of sharing this film with the world,” Bratcher told “Fox & Friends.” Read more…

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Despite intense media opposition, an “R” rating from the MPAA, and big tech censorship, pro-life film “Unplanned” is wildly outperforming expectations at the box office.

The biopic — which details Planned Parenthood defector Abby Johnson’s dramatic journey from abortion mouthpiece to pro-life crusader — has taken in an estimated $6,110,000 this weekend, expected to become the #5 movie at the box office.

The film was projected to bring in less than half of what it’s generated thus far.

Notably, “Unplanned” ($6 million budget) racked up a cumulative per-screen average of $5,770 per screen, edging out big-budget flick “Captain Marvel” ($152 million budget).

“Unplanned” has also dominated in audience reviews, scoring a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes and earning an A+ rating from CinemaScore.

The Death of Honest Journalism

The verdict is in. The Mueller investigation confirmed in its report delivered to the attorney general’s office last Friday that the Russian collusion conspiracy waged against President Trump and his 2016 campaign — manufactured by deceptive deep-state actors and partisan Democrats, and enthusiastically disseminated by complicit media the past two years — was all a hoax.

It was a massive disinformation campaign courtesy of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign. The campaign paid millions to Fusion GPS, a slimy opposition-research firm that complied the infamous “dirty dossier” via Russian informants and a disgraced ex-British spy. The Department of Justice then used the dossier to spy on the Trump campaign and launch subsequent criminal investigations. Former FBI Director James Comey told Congress the opposition research was “salacious and unverified.”

If you think exploiting the U.S. Justice Department to target political opponents isn’t troubling enough — and a salvo against our nation’s two-party system — the mainstream media, saturated with political activists masquerading as journalists, was in on the Russia hoax, gleefully disseminating fictitious lies and conspiracy theories in an attempt to take down a duly elected president.

Talk about election meddling — only it wasn’t Russian President Vladimir Putin doing the bidding; he was just a decoy. It was former President Barack Obama’s Justice Department, malevolent media and powerful members of the Democratic Party who subverted our democracy while blaming the Russians and our commander in chief for conspiratorial malfeasance. It was the ultimate head fake.

On CNN and other outlets, Democrat leaders in Washington including the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, spread relentless conspiracy theories and lies about Donald Trump and his campaign having colluded with Russia to steal the election from their candidate of choice, Hillary Clinton.

Make no mistake: It wasn’t just rumormongering. The hoax was an all-out propaganda war against a sitting president. Chief Conspiracy Theorist Schiff told outlets there was “direct evidence” of collusion between Russia and Trump’s campaign — without any evidence to back the far-fetched claims. Piling onto the “Get Trump” feeding frenzy were many liberal lawmakers who accused Trump and his associates of being Russian assets or criminals pending indictment.

Then there’s John Brennan, a paid CNN commentator who used the weight of his stature as former head of the CIA to accuse the president of the United States of treason — amongst other treacherous accusations. Only none of it was true, evidenced by the special counsel’s report given after the 22-month exhaustive investigation. Honest journalism in America today is dead. Done. Kaput. Put a fork in it.

Trump tweeted: “The Mainstream Media is under fire and being scorned all over the World as being corrupt and FAKE. For two years they pushed the Russian Collusion Delusion when they always knew there was No Collusion. They truly are the Enemy of the People and the Real Opposition Party!”

Sadly, he’s right. Countless members of the press committed media malpractice by spreading propaganda based on fictitious conspiracy theories and lies on their networks to target a politician they didn’t like.
That’s not journalism, folks. It’s a political hit job launched from America’s newsrooms, an unconscionable abuse of power by the media our nation has never witnessed before.

But now the truth has come out, and the Democrats’, the deep state’s and the complicit media’s fraud upon the American people have been exposed by the special counsel investigation they helped instigate.
Funny how the cookie crumbles.

Google, Amazon Coordinate Attack on TX Christians

Google, Amazon, IBM, and several local Texas chambers of commerce are banding together against legislation protecting the First Amendment freedom of religion for business owners. Namely, they complain that “faith-based exemption” opponents of gay marriage and abortion will be protected from liberal lawsuits. “We will continue to oppose any unnecessary, discriminatory, and divisive measures that would damage Texas’ reputation and create problems for our employees and their families,” they wrote jointly in a letter to the Texas state legislature.

Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

Google, Amazon, IBM and Texas businesses banded together to oppose several Texas bills offering religious exemptions to businesses and state license holders.

The group of businesses, along with several local Texas chambers of commerce, sent a letter to the Texas state legislature Wednesday declaring that they will oppose any legislation that affords protections to business owners who refuse service to individuals based on deeply held religious beliefs.

They also oppose protections for physicians and other state-licensed professionals who refuse non-emergency services, like abortions, for the same reasons.

“We will continue to oppose any unnecessary, discriminatory, and divisive measures that would damage Texas’ reputation and create problems for our employees and their families,” the letter read, according to The Associated Press.

Google: CPAC is a “Sideshow Circus”; Conservatives Should be “Steered”

According to the latest release of leaked audio files from internal Google meetings, the Internet search engine is moving on from just online censorship of conservatives to on-the-ground operations to influence them in a more liberal direction. In the recordings, Adam Kovacevich, Google’s senior director of U.S. public policy, describes the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) as a “sideshow Circus.” He then goes on to defend Google’s sponsorship of it as an attempt to “steer” the conservative movement “away from nationalistic and incendiary comments.” Read more…

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Google’s senior director of U.S. public policy, Adam Kovacevich appeared to describe the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) as a “sideshow Circus,” in a leaked audio recording in which he also argued that Google should remain a sponsor of the conference to “steer” the conservative movement “away from nationalistic and incendiary comments.”

The comments came to light in leaked audio files allegedly of a company-wide meeting at Google, part of which is now exclusively reported by Breitbart News. Another part of the transcript was released last Friday on Tucker Carlson Tonight, while further snippets revealing Google’s funding of establishment conservative think-tanks were published by the left-leaning tech magazine Wired in December.

The alleged meeting took place in the wake of Google’s sponsorship of CPAC in 2018, which triggered an internal rebellion from left-wing employees of the tech giant. Breitbart News exclusively reported on the revolt at the time, in which radical left-wingers inside Google accused CPAC of “ethno-nationalism” and “hate.”

Whistleblower: Facebook “Deboosts” Conservative Content

An undercover Project Veritas investigation caught a Facebook whistleblower revealing just how conservative censorship works. According to the bombshell report, one means of suppression is built right into the code of the website: and it’s called “deboosting.” How does it work? An ActionDeboostLiveDistribution tag embedded in the code automatically throttles down the content of pages it’s attached to, specifically targeting live streams. It can also reduce a “video’s visibility in news feeds, removing sharing features, and disable interactive notifications.” Read more…

Recent Facebook insider leaks released by Project Veritas reveal that the social media giant’s demoting of conservative content isn’t just done by human moderators, it’s built right into the code of the website as a technical action called “deboosting.”

Project Veritas latest bombshell report reveals inside info from Facebook. One of the most shocking revelations from the report is that Mark Zuckerberg’s suppression of conservative content on the platform isn’t just the result of heavy-handed moderation by human employees, but is actually built right into the code of the site.

Intel Chair: “Legally, the President is on Pretty Solid Ground”

On CNN this week, former House Intelligence Committee chairman Mike Rogers argued that President Trump is on “solid ground” regarding the legalities of the border wall national emergency declaration. “If I listened to Mitch McConnell correctly, he said if it is legal I will support it,…Legally, I think the president is on pretty solid ground. There’s been 70 of these national emergencies. Something like 37 are still in effect by a whole variety of presidents.” Read more…

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Monday on CNN’s “New Day,” former Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), who also served as the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee while in the U.S. House, argued President Donald Trump was on “solid ground” legally.

According to Rogers, also a CNN contributor, if a court stepped in, it would overturn other prior presidential emergency orders.

“If I listened to Mitch McConnell correctly, he said if it is legal I will support it,” Rogers said. “So that was his couching, I think, of a position he didn’t want to find himself in. Here’s the problem: Legally, I think the president is on pretty solid ground. There’s been 70 of these national emergencies. Something like 37 are still in effect by a whole variety of presidents. And the law is not very clear on what a national emergency is. It will be really hard for the court to step in and then overstep all of those 70 other decisions and Congress specifically giving this authority. That said, I think politically is the price the president pays on this.”
