SHOTS FIRED: Google Targets Conservative Media with Biased New Feature…

Posted: 09 Jan 2018 06:36 PM PST

Google conservative media

It’s only Tuesday and, oopsie, Google is already up to no good again. Pesky pestilence. Today the search engine giant launched a shiny new “fact check” feature. One problem though. It appears to almost exclusively target conservative websites, according to Daily Caller.

Google, the most powerful search engine in the world, is now displaying fact checks for conservative publications in its results. No prominent liberal site receives the same treatment.

When searching for a media outlet that leans right, like The Daily Caller (TheDC), Google gives users details on the sidebar, including what topics the site typically writes about, as well as a section titled "Reviewed Claims."

Vox, and other left-wing outlets and blogs like Gizmodo, are not given the same fact-check treatment. When searching their names, a "Topics they write about" section appears, but there are no "Reviewed Claims."

In fact, a review of mainstream outlets, as well as other outlets associated with liberal and conservative audiences, shows that only conservative sites feature the highly misleading, subjective analysis. Several conservative-leaning outlets like TheDC are "vetted," while equally partisan sites like Vox, ThinkProgress, Slate, The Huffington Post, Daily Kos, Salon, Vice and Mother Jones are spared.

Of course, Salon “pedophiles are people too!” dot com is spared any judgement. Possibly because fact checking such non-truth goldmines would require all of Google’s efforts and monies. Too hard.

Does Google’s new feature sound biased? Definitely. But fact-checking shouldn’t be that big a deal if one’s content is factually correct. In fact, those seeking to promote the truth should invite themselves to be under the scrutiny of fact-checkers. Even if said checkers of facts need to maybe pursue a better hobby. Shut down the ole PC and go outside for once. But there’s another issue at hand here:

And not only is Google's fact-checking highly partisan — perhaps reflecting the sentiments of its leaders — it is also blatantly wrong, asserting sites made "claims" they demonstrably never made.

The Daily Caller then goes on to show proof of this claim, including multiple “reviews” where Google scrutinizes statements TheDC never made. This revelation comes as a not-so-surprise. Apparently Google is using Snopes as one of their handy dandy fact reviewers, and Snopes is no stranger to blatant wrongness. See Snopes Tries ‘Fact-Checking’ LWC On Migrant Rape… Fails Miserably

It’s not just Daily Caller taking notice of Google’s new biased wad of fail. Daily Wire also got tossed into the mix. Here’s a comparison of Daily Wire’s search results vs Vox’s:

Notice something missing here? It’s Google’s objective credibility. But as is the case with most leftist corporations, that vanished a long time ago. Like Bernie Sanders’ hairline.

Keep in mind, Google is an internet superpower. Not only do they affect millions of users and content, they set trends in the tech industry. This is a huge step in silencing or limiting those who disagree with the progressive narrative. Trendy new fad. I’m sure the left is simply wetting itself in excitement right about now. Someone call Mark Zuckerberg!

Gay Imam Admits Islam is Dangerous… So He’s Opening His Own Mosque?

Posted: 09 Jan 2018 04:52 PM PST

Muslims loves gays. When it comes to tossing people off rooftops, gays are their first choice. Other favorite Islamic LGBT activities include: public executions, brutal beatings, and anti-gay death squads.

As you can imagine, things weren’t exactly rainbows and glitter for Australia’s first openly gay imam. You can learn a little about him in the video below, which is from last year.

His plan? To open a mosque of his own. This story is from today.

Australia’s only openly gay Imam is pushing for the country’s first LGBTI-friendly mosque that would also act as a safe house and counselling centre. Nur Warsame said he is dealing with an “avalanche of misery” among LGBTI Muslims who have no support services or safe spaces.

Imam Nur is a devout Muslim who once led one of Melbourne’s largest mosques. When he came out as gay in 2010 the Muslim clergy severed ties with him, despite his rare credentials as a hafiz — someone who has memorised the Koran.

Memorizing the Quran means jack sh!t if you’re willing to slide your sausage into another dude.

“You are talking about an ideology that believes your repentance is to be killed as a gay person,” he said. He said he gets daily calls for help from young Muslims struggling with fierce and, at times, violent resistance from their family and community.

Ergo the Imam has struggled to find his own Muslim Safe Space for Queer as F*ck We Must Run for our Lives. That’s the rumored mosque’s name. Rumored.

Nur says it himself: Islamic belief decrees death for all homos (see Orlando Imam on Gays: ‘Death is the Sentence…’). Rounding up all the community’s gays and putting them in one bombable building seems a rather bad idea. Somehow methinks other Muslims won’t take too well to seeing rainbow flags hung next to the crescent moon. Allahu Akbar, loose-wristed bitches!

It’s Mohammad and little Aisha, not Mohammad and Osama. Pedophilia? A-Ok. Gayness? DEATH IS THE SENTENCE!

So what we have here is a devout Muslim acknowledging his other devout Muslims want to skewer him. Then toss his flamboyant tushy off the nearest building. Peace be upon him.

This man seems to think Islam and gays can coexist as well as the bumpersticker on a Prius parked at a Whole Foods. Good luck with that. History, the Quran, and Muslims themselves all beg to differ.

Speaking of which:

Red Robin Fires Busboys to Make Up for Minimum Wage Hikes

Posted: 09 Jan 2018 04:50 PM PST

busboys

Leftists and the #fightfor15 strike again. First came the robot cashiers. Then came less hours. Now, Red Robin is giving their busboys the shaft to make up for the money they’re hemorrhaging.

Restaurant busboys, in line to earn a little more dough this year as minimum wage hikes hit across the country, are instead losing their jobs as chains look to cut costs.

One chain axing jobs is Red Robin, which hopes to save about $8 million this year by eliminating busboys at each of its 570 restaurants, the company said Monday.

Red Robin restaurants are located mostly in Western states, where the minimum wage has risen more quickly.

The Colorado-based chain already eliminated so-called expediters — who plate the food in the kitchen — and realized a cost savings of nearly $10 million last year, it said.

Well, here’s to “progress.”

Happy Gilmore thumbs down

I can hear it now, leftists crying about the mustache-twirling businessmen exploiting the working man. Which just goes to show the extent of their dunderheadedness. Contrary to their beliefs, there’s no bush that yields $100 bills. When you force yuge expenditures, like requiring a dishwasher to make a doctor’s salary, cuts are going to happen.

Compare this to the alternative. The tax cuts just went into effect last week. Already companies are giving copious amounts of coinage to charity, and awarding raises and bonuses for their employees. Geez, allowing businesses to keep their earnings seems to work out better than robbing them. Who would’ve thought.

Progressives always want to meddle in business affairs. Thanks to that meddling, a whole buttload of busboys are now out on their rear-ends. They’re like King Midas, except everything they touch turns into a pile of crap.

This is why letting Bernie Sanders anywhere near our economy is a bad idea.

College Professors: Beyonce’s Veganism Promotes… Discrimination?

Posted: 09 Jan 2018 04:40 PM PST

Beyonce

This new feminist study reads like SJW Night at the Improv. Where you yell wacky ideas at comedians and they have to make a sketch. This is like a college lecture yelled out “Beyonce” “vegan” and “discriminate.” Then two professors were tasked to make a study out of it. The end result? Taking Beyonce's veganism, where she is taking the 22 day challenge, and saying that it "reproduces existing patterns of discrimination and inequality."

Hey, all I know is that Beyonce is overrated and being a vegan is unhealthy. But I’m also a Taylor Swift fan who loves to BBQ.

My brisket infused brain probably isn’t smart enough to comprehend this:

"The appropriation of a vegan diet is mobilized as part of a post-feminist ethics that promotes an individualistic form of emancipation, which sustains existent patterns of discrimination and inequality, consumerism and neoliberalism," Fegitz and Pirani explain.

"In this context, the endorsement of veganism is radically different from the ethical and political stance of eco-feminism or black veganism, becoming commodified as just another lifestyle choice," they add.

I’ve been reading those sentences for thirty minutes, and still have no idea what they mean.

Other than these professors are dangerously close to kicking the Beyhive. They may think they’re being woke, but they are daring to question the Woke Queen. We’ll see how woke the professors feel after a swarm of angry tweets. From people with bad taste in music. Or liberal bloggers who don’t know why they love Beyonce. Just that it’s job security to claim they do.

"Indeed, Beyoncé's uptake and promotion of a vegan diet highlights what Elspeth Probyn has called 'choicechoisie,' by which she means the bourgeois, neo-liberal logic of shaping personal identity through the exercise of consumer choice," they state.

"Ultimately, the post-feminist endorsement of veg*ism becomes a business opportunity, with celebrities such as Beyoncé capitalizing and aggrandizing their wealth through a dietary practice that eco-feminism has employed for political and ethical reasons," the professors conclude.

Oh, wait. Are they calling Beyonce a poseur? Are they calling celebrities poseurs who don’t actually care about things they claim do? That they only do them for publicity? I can dig that. I have no idea what it has to do with feminism or discrimination, but I can still agree with them there.

But in the end, there are no heroes here. There are no winners in a feminist study attacking Beyonce’s veganism for discriminating.

There are only people and thing for us to laugh at.

Video: Jamie Raskin Called Out by Katy Tur for Trying to Remove Trump From Office

Posted: 09 Jan 2018 04:16 PM PST

Leftists’ new strategy for 2018 seems to be proving Trump to be a giant basket case. Progressive politicians like human Brillo Pad, Jamie Raskin, are jumping on that bandwagon and demanding a psych evaluation of the orange one. Proving there’s no low to which the left won’t stoop to oust the Donald.

Even Katy Tur seems to think that’s the case.

Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin (Md.) appeared on MSNBC on Monday to talk about a bill he proposed that would establish a commission to determine whether the president is fit for office.

Raskin denied the bill had to do with President Donald Trump, even though Raskin has called for his impeachment before.

“It’s not a body devoted to looking at Donald Trump’s fitness for office,” Raskin said.

MSNBC anchor Katy Tur had a follow-up, however.

“Here’s the thing, congressman. You want to impeach this president. You’ve said so,” Tur said.

“No, I haven’t—when did I say that?” Raskin asked, clearly flustered.

“You’ve said you wanted to impeach the president,” Tur reiterated before reading off examples.

Katy’s right. Jamie Raskin has floated the idea of giving Trump the boot before. On his first day in office, in fact. It sounds to me like little Jamie has a personal beef against Trump, instead of real concerns about his mental health.

Leftist sympathizers might call this scrutiny of the Trump’s cognitive functions “a genuine concern for the well-being of our most precious union.” The rest of us see it for what it really is. A bunch of opportunistic slimeballs trying to tell Trump “you’re fired,” however they can.

All these dirty tricks just go to show the left has no alternative to offer. Rather than put forward superior policies, they’ll keep digging for dirt and trying to send Trump to a padded room. Sad.

Rich Privilege? This Stanford Study on Education Says No…

Posted: 09 Jan 2018 03:15 PM PST

Staford Test Scores Surprising

Affirmative Action was created to help “disadvantaged” individuals get into university. Where major levels of social justice are rolled into four years. Such high exposure causes brain meltage. But one study is showing poor kids may be striking oil when it comes to school long before college. In other words, rich privilege isn’t a thing.

The myth that funding equals a better school? Not true.

A new Stanford University study of test scores from 45 million students, who populate the about 11,000 US public-school districts, upends that set of assumptions.

The study found no correlation between a given district’s socioeconomic status and the average test scores of its students. According to Stanford sociologist Sean Reardon…

“There are many relatively high-poverty school districts where students appear to be learning at a faster rate than kids in other, less poor districts,” Reardon said in a statement. “Poverty clearly does not determine the quality of a school system.”

Reardon first gathered data on third-grade test scores, reasoning that kids performed roughly according to their family’s level of wealth. “Affluent families and districts are able to provide much greater opportunities than poor ones early in children’s lives,” he wrote in the report.

Knocked down by his own biases toward poor people. At least he’s willing to admit he’s wrong instead of fudging the numbers, unlike certain dunderheads. See everything Hillary has ever done.

Then he crunched the numbers on approximately 45 million test scores, from third- through eighth-graders in nearly every US school district. Surprisingly, Reardon found no correlation between how wealthy a district was and whether its kids were making outsized leaps in achievement.

Math is hard, especially in large quantities. So we’ll give this leftist a pat on the back and his first ever man card. Studies can be stupidly simple. Just take an objective step back, conduct the experiment, or study, or survey. Don’t forget a control group, just make sure they aren’t SJWs. They have no control.

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again with an amplified tone: people who deserve to go to college will find a way to get into college. It doesn’t matter if they’re so poor they eat pizza — boxes.

The stunning thing about this study? Bad test scores + rapidly better test scores = a good school.

Good teachers help kiddos improve. All the monies on the earthly sphere can’t buy passionate teachers. Well, maybe “passionate” isn’t the word I’m fishing for (see 40-Yr-Old Teacher Sexually Harasses Teen Student in the Lewdest Ways). We’ll go with effective instead. Teachers in poor schools tend to be there because they want to be. Not because it’s a great place to work, with great benefits and fancy teacher lounges. They’re there to help slum house Sally get the smarts.

Assuming minorities or people in poverty need special help getting into college is demeaning. Definition of the “white savior.” They seem to be doing just fine without self-righteous academic pricks kissing their boo-boos. Affirmative Action has merely affirmed victimhood. Or shall I say alleged victims of the “hood?” I’m done now.

Here’s an educational video all about the current laws surrounding Affirmative Action. It’s actually affirming:

Chelsea Manning Celebrates ‘Law Enforcement Appreciation Day’ With Anti-Police Tirade

Posted: 09 Jan 2018 02:50 PM PST

Chelsea Manning

At this point, I’m no longer convinced Chelsea Manning is a real person. As much as a genetically engineered troll. Her/his story is a little too unbelievable. Bradley Manning was a traitor convicted of espionage. Then he decides he’s a woman while he’s in jail. Then he gets pardoned by President Obama for no other reason that s/he’s a tranny. Now, “Chelsea” appears to be nothing more than a computer program writing tweets with excessive emojis.

So of course s/he would open her/his mouth hole on Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.

Queue the traitorous trolling tranny. Which is a lot of ‘T’ for someone so low in it.

Where you at, Lucile?

With all the hatred leftists like Manning spew (see Teen Blasts 'F*** Tha Police' During Cop's Funeral and Baton Rouge Shooter: Dallas PD Killings Were 'Justice'), Law Enforcement Appreciation Day is a much needed day just to say thank you. Even if it is mostly just a hashtag. It’s a way to remind cops that even though the media sucks, most of us have their back.

Of course leftist doucheburritos like Chelsea Manning would have beef with that.

Steve Bannon Out from Breitbart. We’re Not That Sad About It.

Posted: 09 Jan 2018 02:47 PM PST

Steve Bannon

Ding dong, the bitchy man is dead to everyone. Yes, Steve Bannon, the would-be-king if there was ever a DC monarchy, is out from Brietbart.com. I’ll get to the live shots of both Steven Crowder and Ben Shapiro in a second. First, the details.

Bannon blabbed to Fire and Fury author like an awkward pre-teen girl hoping for a seat at the cool table. Turns out Rebekah Mercer, who writes fat checks for Breitbart while sitting at the cool table, was not amused with Bannon’s loose lips:

Bannon provoked Rebekah Mercer's ire by making critical comments about Trump and his family to author Michael Wolff in a book, "Fire and Fury," published just last week. Bannon is quoted in the book as saying that Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, engaged in "treasonous" behavior by secretly meeting with Russian representatives during the campaign to get unflattering information about Trump's opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Trump replied to Bannon's comments with a statement savaging his former confidant. "Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind," the president said. He later attacked Wolff and the book in a tweet in which he referred to Bannon as "Sloppy Steve."

I don’t care what anyone thinks of Trump as a person, president, or toupee inspiration. His nickname game is on point.

Look, I’ve never had personal dealings with Bannon. I don’t know him. I’m not sure if he knows me or not. Doesn’t matter. What I do know is from what others (who know him) have told me about Bannon. That he’s a bullying, belligerent tyrant and if you dare disobey or displease him:

throat death

Anything I say outside of that wouldn’t hold up in a court of law. Good thing this website isn’t a court of law.

We don’t want to kick Bannon when he’s down. That’s a cheap shot. So instead, lemme give you a gif of what Bannon thought life would be like, versus reality:

That gif might have been sent to me by someone whose last name rhymes with “Crowder.” Don’t quote me on that.

Put on your fancy hats, I’m about to get intellectual. What knocked Bannon down was hubris. That’s fancy talk for his ego. Maybe you saw Luke Skywalker talk about it in The Last Jedi. Bannon thought he had the finest smelling caca in all the land. His buttocks got too big for his pantaloons. Pick your favorite expression for “He acted like a smug prick” and apply it to Steve Bannon. Well the fat (but still beautiful, obviously) lady finally sang. No word yet on if it’s broken Bannon’s spirit. Because we’re not going to kick him when he’s down. Nope. That’s, like, totally classless.

Live shot of Ben Shapiro right now:

Okay maybe that’s what Ben would look like if his wife, who’s a doctor, stopped loving him. Don’t quote me on that.

Let Bannon’s tale be a cautionary one: don’t be an ass who burns everyone in his ambitious path, lest everyone revel in your ultimate undoing. Remember the final scene from Return of The Jedi, where all the planets are celebrating the fall of the Empire? I’m sure that’s not happening in all the conservative circles right now. Nope.

Let’s hold a moment of silence for Steve Bannon. Thoughts and prayers. Avatar changes. Forgetting about all it in hours. You know the drill.

There’s no proper segue for this video, I just like it:

Uh Oh! New Data Shows REAL Gender Gap Within Hiring. Feminists Remain Silent…

Posted: 09 Jan 2018 02:13 PM PST

Gender Gap Hiring

It’s 2018 and feminists are still bitching about inequality. Still. While Meryl Streep is squawking her gullet dry over the wage gap, women CEOs make waaaaay more than men CEOs, women get sick leave for period pain, women get free tampons, women get special legal attention, women get selected to fill diversity quotas, shall I go on?

Here’s another to add to the ever growing list. According to the data, one gender is way more hirable than the other. I’m sure you can venture a guess as to which one.

Resumes with obviously female names had a +48.3% higher chance of getting an interview.

This effect was initially very surprising to us, but when you think it about it, it's really not. Dozens of studies show that women often don't get what they deserve (basically) because they don't ask for it. This shows that, when women do ask for what they deserve, they're often recognized for it.

In the past several months, women across the country have become more vocal about their rights, from standing up to sexual harassment to supporting each other in the workplace. Between the clear (data-proven) benefits of hiring women, that women are outperforming men in school, and the fact that most recruiters are women (who want to support other women), it makes 100% sense why women might be getting a boost when they apply for jobs.

Whoa! So not only are we seeing a case where women aren’t being discriminated against, but also being preferred. What this means? If women aren’t getting work, it isn’t because they don’t have career options. It’s because they suck.

Looks like whiny womenfolk can finally shut up about sexism now. Rejoice, feminists! You can sleep at night knowing ladies aren’t being robbed of opportunity. All is well.

Of course, this isn’t all that encouraging to dudes. Just glancing over the numbers, it appears ladies get preferential treatment simply because they possess vaginas and occasionally surf the crimson tide of womanly pain. Maybe men should consider appearing more feminine for job opportunities. You know, shave thine grotesquely hairy legs, have more mammary foam in the boobal region. That sort of thing.

Interestingly enough, you don’t see “champions against sexism” protesting the fact that the numbers aren’t exactly stacked in men’s favor. But since when does progress care about them? #GirlPower

Stats Show Trump’s ‘Enhanced Vetting’ Drastically Lowered Refugee Admissions

Posted: 09 Jan 2018 01:32 PM PST

refugees numbers

One of the biggest sources of leftist crybabies’ tantrums? Trump imposing his “travel ban,” where we finally started exercising a little caution before letting refugees into the Land of the Free. They’d much rather us throw the doors open and have an immigration free-for-all. A practice many of the same tantrum-throwers don’t exercise every time they throw the deadbolt. Just saying.

Well, I’d buy some stock in Kleenex. More progressive tears are about to cascade in a Niagara fashion. The latest stats on incoming refugees are in and, boy oh boy, do they look good.

The U.S. is on pace to admit the fewest number of refugees since the years immediately following the 9/11 attacks, as the Trump administration's enhanced vetting has slashed resettlement from many war-torn countries.

In the first three months of fiscal year 2018 — October, November and December — about 5,300 refugees were admitted, according to State Department data released last week.

This is going by fiscal year. Not the year you and I follow on a normal day calendar.

If that pace continues through the end of FY2018, annual admissions will total roughly 26,000, far below the cap of 45,000 set by the Trump administration in September.

The religious composition of resettled refugees has also changed along with their geographical origins. People who identified as Muslim composed about 14 percent of refugees admitted so far in FY2018, compared to about 40 percent in recent years…

Well, would you look at that.

These are some good numbers. Refugees’ track record on crime isn’t the best. Especially from the Sharia-compliant demographic. We can see how well the refugee game is playing out for Euro cousins. Luckily for us, we’ve got the orange fella in the Oval Office to say “no thanks” on our behalf and to turn the troublemakers away.

Leftists will no doubt be appalled by these stats. Even though all of them say the nay-no to housing refugees themselves. They can whine until they soil their Huggies. We’re not listening. Our tiny tots staying unraped and among the living is more important than racking up a couple extra diversity points.

Also, there’s no rule or law saying the United States must be the world’s daycare center. No, the inscription on the Statue of Liberty is not law. Our country must first take care of its own, the rest of the world never. It’s not our job to ensure every person on Planet Earth has a safe place to live. We help out of the goodness of our hearts.

While we’re on the subject:
