Jamele Hill, a commentator on the sports channel ESPN, has been suspended for two weeks after she made a second violation of the company’s social media guidelines when she urged viewers to boycott the Dallas Cowboys’ advertisers. This was because the owner of the team announced that any player that refused to stand respectfully for the national anthem would be benched. He said: “Stand for the anthem or sit for the game.” Last month, Hill tweeted that President Trump was a “white supremacist”.

Update (4:00 pm ET): None other than Al Sharpton has already come out denouncing ESPN’s decision to enforce their corporate bye-laws…
Quickly followed by a full statement:
“We consider it outrageous that Jemele Hill was suspended by ESPN. She has the right to tell people that they ought to let advertisers know how they feel, since they are the consumers. While she didn’t call for a direct boycott, it’s not off the table for us in the civil rights community.”
New Mexico is suing Google, Twitter, Tiny Labs, and other app developers for collecting data on children under 13-years-old without their parents’ permission. The apps can track where children live, play, and go to school.
Syria: A Russian military plane was shot down accidentally by Syrian anti-aircraft fire, killing all 15 on board. Initially, Moscow blamed Israel, because Israeli jets were flying in the same area as the passenger route and, thereby, attracted Syrian anti-aircraft fire into the path of the passenger plane.
The basis for the war in Afghanistan was an official document that was classified as secret but which was said to contain conclusive proof that the 911 attack on the US was directed from Afghanistan, but there was no proof whatsoever.
Google’s Chinese search engine, called ‘Dragonfly’, will censor dissidents, block information critical of the government, and will link searches to phone numbers, thus allowing authorities to identify who is making the searches. [Google finds nothing wrong with participating in this program.]
Car ‘smash and grabs’ are common in California because thieves know they will not be prosecuted. In San Francisco, police-commission rules forbid police to chase thieves if they try to escape in a car. This, they say, is to cut down on high-speed chases and, therefore, is justified because it reduces accidents.
A leaked clip shows how Facebook is used to spread political propaganda and promote hidden agendas in a way that most viewers do not detect. Be aware that there are powerful forces using sophisticated techniques to engineer your opinions about issues that profoundly affect your future.
Despite California having a vigorous economy, 20% of Californians are suffering economic hardship, mostly due to the cost of housing. Moderate wage earners age 35 to 44 are leaving California due to rising crime, heavy traffic, a growing homeless epidemic and, especially high taxes. [These are the natural effects of collectivism. Only the wealthy and the impoverished will remain in the state. Eventually, everyone will be impoverished except the ruling elite.]
Democrats are demanding that Senator Chuck Grassley postpone the vote to appoint Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court following accusations by Christine Blasey Ford, 51, a far-left California professor, who claims Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than 35 years ago.
In a rare and unprecedented speech delivered on the House floor just two days after the nation memorialized 9/11, Democratic Hawaiian Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard on Thursday slammed Washington’s longtime support to anti-Assad jihadists in Syria, while
Dragonfly, the search system, was designed to remove content that China’s authoritarian government views as sensitive, such as information about free speech, democracy, human rights, and peaceful protest. Poulson also had concerns over the accessibility customer data to Chinese agencies that target political activists and journalists.
Some of the evidence provided by the UK is questionable, especially since the event was used to impose sanctions against Russia, and new sanctions are threatened. Jake Morphonios shows how the photos of the suspects at Gatwick Airport in England appear to be doctored by Scotland Yard.

After local law enforcement and the FBI began investigating, Dauntarius Williams confessed to defacing his own car with racist slurs, but, in order to avoid prosecution, he claimed it was a “Halloween prank that got out of hand”. It worked.
Philadelphia: Joseph Messina, a 12-year-old 7th-grade honors student at Mastery Charter Thomas Campus, was attacked and beaten by six other students. Several weeks later, a racial threat was spray painted on his home that read, “Snitch’n ass. Die cracker”, an epithet often used by blacks against whites. [We hesitate to carry this story because we do not want to be part of a process that leads to race hatred. The father of this boy clearly is so angry that it appears he is ready for violent retribution. Our enemies are masters of ‘divide-and-conquer’, and such action, while easy to understand on the part of the father, would play into the hands of the enemies of both races that want race war and martial law to place the final clamp-down on America. Yet, this event really happened, and we are under an obligation to report it honestly and objectively. However, we fervently hope that our readers will not step into the trap of counter hatred and violence.]
