After brutal media attacks, Provorov’s jersey sells out at NHL online store

There has been a subtle shift in culture where a person can no longer remain neutral on certain issues, but must actively support them, or risk being called some type of ‘phobe’. Ivan Provorov, a defenceman for the Philadelphia Flyers, recently found himself being lambasted by the woke media and on social media for not donning a pride-themed jersey during warm-up prior to a game against the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday, Fox News reports The Russian-born player sat out the warm-up stating that he didn’t feel comfortable doing it, choosing instead to stand with his convictions and religious beliefs. In an interview after the game, Provorov told reporters: “I respect everybody and I respect everybody’s choices. My choice is to stay true to myself and my religion. That’s all I’m going to say.” Provorov, who attends the Russian Orthodox Church, wasn’t being critical, he just couldn’t support it. But it seems a person can no longer remain neutral on these issues but must be seen actively supporting them or face the wrath of the woke …

CNN hits record viewership lows

According to data published by Adweek, the average number of people watching CNN on Jan 10, 2023, was just 520,000, with only 120,000 of them in the key demographic, 25 to 54, coveted by advertisers, the Daily Caller reports. These are reportedly the lowest viewership numbers in CNN’s history. This could potentially lead to yet another round of layoffs at the beleaguered network which over the years has been accused of being little more than a shill for the Democrat Party. READ: Chris Licht Warns Employees Of Upcoming Layoffs At CNN The same seems to also be happening at the Washington Post, another shill for woke politics. In a town hall meeting with employees held on Dec 14, 2022, publisher Fred Ryan warned of looming layoffs in the first three months of 2023. According to reports, the discussion got so testy, that Ryan just abruptly left the meeting.

Seattle school district sues Big Tech over mental health crisis

In an interesting move, a US public school district in Seattle, Washington is suing several social media giants alleging they are causing mental distress, anxiety, and depression among children, Breitbart reports. Included in the list of those being sued are the Chinese-owned TikTok, Facebook and Instagram which are owned by Meta, and also Snapchat, YouTube and Google. In a statement explaining its action, the school board said that it wants to hold “‘social media companies accountable for the harm they have wreaked on the social, emotional, and mental health’ of students.” “The increase in suicides, attempted suicides, and mental-health related emergency room visits is no coincidence,” the statement added. The statement also alleged that Big Tech has manipulated, “the psychology and neurophysiology of their users so that they spend more and more time on their platforms…creating a mental health crisis among young Americans.” READ: Big Tech sued by Seattle schools over mental health ‘crisis’ RELATED: Study: Social Media Causes Children to ‘Dislike Their Own Bodies’ AND Facebook Knows Instagram Is Toxic for Teen Girls, Company …

Social media causes children to dislike themselves, study finds

According to a survey conducted by stem4, a mental health charity, social media has caused children to dislike their bodies, Breitbart reports. The poll of over 1,024 young people between the ages of 12-121 found: In an interview with The Guardian, Dr. Nihara Krause, the founder of stem4 said: “We need to improve understanding of the potentially compelling impact of social media content, and the reinforcement created through algorithms, on young people’s engagement with apps and their consequent mental health.” READ: Study: Social Media Causes Children to ‘Dislike Their Own Bodies’ Of course, many of these social media giants already knew this. According to the Wall Street Journal, Facebook has conducted several studies on the negative impact that Instagram is having on teen girls.

The multiple ways Twitter censored conservatives

For the past several days, Elon Musk, Twitter’s new owner, has been releasing screenshots of conversations and decisions made by former left-wing Twitter employees to hinder conservative voices on the social media platform. In his most recent release, Musk exposed the various methods that were used to limit the reach of conservative voices which the company’s woke employees did not agree with. This included: Trending blacklist: This prevented the tweets of such users as Stanford University’s Dr. Jay Bhattacharya (@DrJBhattacharya), who stated that lockdowns would hurt children, from trending. Don’t amplify: The tweets of users such as Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11), were not allowed to be amplified, which meant among other things his tweets were suppressed during searches. Shadow banning: This limited the visibility of tweets to people who had chosen to follow a particular user. Spying: As part of this anti-conservative campaign, Twitter employees were spying on Direct messages that Twitter users sent to each other.

Did the Chinese Communist Party use TikTok to target US politicians during the 2020 midterms?

According to a report by Forbes, the Chinese Communist Party is controlling several accounts on TikTok, that specifically targeted American politicians who lean politically to the right during the recent 2022 midterms. Breitbart provides more details: The TikTok accounts are being run by MediaLinks TV, a registered foreign agent of the primary Chinese Communist Party television news outlet, China Central Television, according to a report by Forbes. Many of the videos on the China-owned app attacked specific U.S. politicians ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. The largest of these propaganda accounts are @Pandaorama, @The…Optimist, and @NewsTokss. Before the U.S. midterm elections, @NewsTokss reportedly attacked Republican candidates and favored Democrat candidates.

Christian Post still banned on Twitter

While Elon Musk’s transformation of Twitter into a free speech platform is underway, Christian Post, a major Christian news outlet still hasn’t had its count restored. Christian Post was banned in March this year after a headline of one of its stories described trans-woman, Health and Human Services Secretary Rachel Levine, as a man. The CP’s previous appeals of the banning had been denied, but with the change of ownership, CP initiated a second appeal on Sunday, Nov. 20, 2022. According to the latest reports, Musk has restored the Babylon Bee, a Christian satirical website, Dr. Jordan Peterson, Veritas and even former US president, Donald Trump, after Musk initiated a poll asking if Trump should be allowed back. In a poll, that saw over 15 million people casting their vote, just under 52% voted in favor of allowing the former president to return. Even though he has not posted any tweets, Trump has 87.6 million followers.

US FCC Commissioner calls for TikTok to be banned

TikTok, a short-form video-sharing platform, has quickly become one of the more popular social media apps in the world today. According to recent studies over 41% of its users are Gen Z (ages 16 to 24). But along with this, there are growing concerns about the app, and its connection to China and the Chinese Communist Party. In early November 2022, Brendan Carr, a commissioner for Federal Communications Commission (FCC) stated that the US should ban TikTok in order to protect the data of American citizens. Fox News provides more details: Carr, one of the five commissioners who lead the FCC, argued in an interview with Axios that there is no way to have “sufficient confidence” that Americans’ data on the app is not being sent back to Beijing and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). TikTok is owned by the Chinese tech giant, ByteDance, and Chinese law mandates that companies share their data with the CCP upon request. […] That access is used frequently as well, as was revealed in an extensive report from BuzzFeed …

Activists trying to drive away Twitter advertisers

Elon Musk recently purchased Twitter with plans to return free speech to the once heavily censored anti-conservative social media platform. But Musk is now reporting that activist groups are fighting back and organizing a campaign to have corporations stop advertising on Twitter. Musk reports that there has already been a significant drop in revenue. The Post Millennial provides more details: Twitter owner Elon Musk says that his newly purchased website Twitter has seen a “massive drop” in revenue due to activist groups pressuring Twitter, despite nothing having changed in content moderation. Musk tweeted on Friday, “Twitter has had a massive drop in revenue, due to activist groups pressuring advertisers, even though nothing has changed with content moderation and we did everything we could to appease the activists. Extremely messed up! They’re trying to destroy free speech in America.” Some major corporations that have allegedly already stopped advertising on Twitter, include General Mills, Audi, Pfizer, and Volkswagen.

How Twitter fact-checked President Biden’s tweet

With Elon Musk’s purchase of the social media giant, Twitter, people are hoping for a return to free speech and facts on the platform. It may be too soon to tell, but people were pleasantly surprised when Twitter fact-checked one of President Biden’s tweets when his office gloated: “Seniors are getting the biggest increase in their social security checks in 10 years through President Biden’s leadership.” In response to the now-deleted Tweet, Twitter pointed out in a statement below the tweet, that the increase was simply an automatic cost of living adjustment due to inflation caused by the Biden administration. The fact check stated: “Seniors will receive a large Social Security benefit increase due to the annual cost of living adjustment, which is based on the inflation rate. President Nixon in 1972 signed into law automatic benefit adjustments tied to the Consumer Price Index. Pub. L. 92-336 (1972).” READ: Twitter praised for fact-check on White House account: ‘Fact checks are getting factual now!’

Free Speech returns to Twitter as Musk takes over

Unless President Joe Biden intervenes Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter seems to be a done deal. To demonstrate how close the deal is to being completed, Musk changed his profile name to ‘Chief Twit’ and released a video of him entering Twitter headquarters carrying a kitchen sink. It is suspected that Musk will officially take over Twitter on Friday, Oct. 28, 2022. In a letter posted today, Musk revealed that his decision to purchase Twitter was for the sake of Free Speech in America as over the years the platform has repeatedly censored conservative voices. The Daily Wire provides more details of Musk’s letter: “The reason I acquired Twitter is because it is important to the future of civilization to have a common digital town square, where a wide range of beliefs can be debated in a healthy manner, without resorting to violence,” Musk wrote. “There is currently great danger that social media will splinter into far right wing and far left wing echo chambers that generate more hate and divide our society.” He also …

Don’t Allow the Media to Shape Your Opinions and Views

By Dr. Michael Brown Has this ever happened to you? You form an opinion about someone based on what others have said, only to meet them and find out that you had a totally wrong impression? Or you’ve read select quotes from a person, only to learn that these quotes, which were taken out of context, painted a very false picture? Headlines and Soundbites Are Manipulated to Mislead I had been following a political race in one state from a distance, very much opposed to the Democratic candidate but not particularly happy with the Republican candidate, either. He sounded like an unreasonable extremist, not to mention a loose cannon. At least that’s the way I often saw him portrayed while surveying a number of different websites. Finally, I decided to listen to him firsthand, and I was totally surprised. He was well spoken. He was careful in his choice of words. He was reasonable. And he sounded like a solid conservative rather than an extremist. I had been misled by a caricature of the man …

Did the NY Times just endorse eco-terrorism and sabotage?

The New York Times has apparently allowed a Swedish Eco extremist, Andrew Malm, to write a column for their paper. In his article, Malm apparently praised eco-terrorism and sabotage. The Daily Caller provides more details: Throughout his NYT essay, Malm, who is also an associate professor of human ecology at Sweden’s Lund University, criticized the climate activists who threw soup on a famous Van Gogh painting in London to protest fossil fuel production as their actions were not “gritty” enough. Malm argues that engaging in eco-terrorism is the most productive and logical form of climate activism and is also the author of the nonfiction book, How to Blow Up a Pipeline: Learning to Fight in a World on Fire.  “As a rule, I tend to think sabotage is most effective when it is precise and gritty,” Malm wrote. Malm praised the British environmentalists who destroyed gas station pumps in the United Kingdom, stating that they “hit the nail on the head” because it directly targeted a source of climate change. Malm claimed that climate movements in the West are now using …

It wasn’t the answer the NY Times was looking for when it asked who was the biggest threat to democracy

I am sure it wasn’t the answer that the New York Times was looking for when it conducted a survey to find out who registered voters considered to be the biggest threat to democracy. I suspect the NY Times was wanting the answer to be former President Donald Trump, but instead, Americans said that the mainstream media are the biggest threat to democracy. Fox News reports: Stunning data from a New York Times/Siena poll find the majority of registered voters believe the media is a “threat” to democracy.  The poll details released Tuesday showed that a whopping 71% of the 792 registered voters questioned say “American democracy is currently under threat.” Among those who fear for democracy, 84% of them, or roughly 60% of all registered voters, view “mainstream media” as some sort of threat. A majority, 59%, call the media a “major threat to democracy” while an additional 25% call it a “minor threat to democracy.” Only 15% who say democracy is under threat do not blame the media.

‘Jesus was not crucified on a Gucci cross’

Christian actress Candace Cameron Bure recently shared a video with her nearly six million Instagram followers of a young Nigerian girl, Cherry Paul Ede, reciting a poem by African poet Fragile Dogubo, Christian Post report. Bure’s post quickly went viral, as the poem was in some ways, a criticism of today’s Christian celebrity culture: “I don’t know who needs to hear this, but Jesus was not crucified on a Gucci cross. He didn’t have on a crown of Versace thorns or Nike shoes on his feet when the nails pierced through. There was nothing bougie about Calvary.” “That old raggedy wooden cross wasn’t even befitting to hold the carpenter’s son, but there our God hung, held on by His love for us, by His love for all. “I thought the crucifixion was like the Grammys, an award show only for a self-righteous view. But the Bible didn’t mention an ovation — only wrongful accusation, hate speech and boos from fools. The King of Glory came through.” READ: ‘Jesus wasn’t crucified on a Gucci cross’: Candace …

Was PayPal planning to fine users $2,500 for disinformation?

PayPal has abruptly changed its mind stating it will not fine users up to $2,500 if they post information the California-financial services corporation does not agree with. The Daily Wire was the first to report that PayPal had introduced a policy stating it would fine users up to $2,500 if they posted information that PayPal considered false. The Daily Wire provides more details: The financial services company, which has repeatedly deplatformed organizations and individual commentators for their political views, announced Saturday, one day after The Daily Wire story broke, that the announcement went out in error. “An [Accepted Use Policy] notice recently went out in error that included incorrect information,” a PayPal spokesperson said. “PayPal is not fining people for misinformation and this language was never intended to be inserted in our policy. We’re sorry for the confusion this has caused.”[…] The report sparked outrage online, with many people tweeting pledges to dump the online payment facilitator. Particularly chilling was the fact that the policy said determinations of what could be deemed “misinformation,” or a …

Study: Excessive social media leads to depression

Researchers from the Public Policy Program at the University of Arkansas concluded that people who spend an excessive amount of time on social media are more likely to show high levels of depression six months later than those who don’t, Study Finds reports. Curiously, despite displaying high degrees of success and positivity in their posts, months later many were struggling with depression. The researchers came to this conclusion after studying 1,000 people between the ages of 18 and 30 in 2018. Study Finds reports: “Regardless of personality type, social media use increased the risk for future depression diagnoses. However, people who rated high in agreeableness were 49 percent less likely to become depressed than people with low agreeableness. When people with high neuroticism — being in a negative or anxious emotional state — spent over five hours on social media (300 minutes), they were twice as likely to develop depression than others.“ The researchers concluded that the depression was caused because people were comparing themselves to others who were also posting the highlights of their lives or when they …

Did the New York Times see a conspiracy theory one day too early?

UPDATE NOV 10, 2022: California has dropped all charges against Eugene Yu, citing lack of evidence and ‘potential bias.’ READ: Charges dropped against election software CEO accused of data theft It is not surprising that the vast majority of Americans don’t trust the mainstream media. In fact, a 2021 poll revealed only 29% of Americans stated they completely trusted the legacy media. In this story about the New York Times, Breitbart explains why no one trusts them. Coincidentally, it involved two stories on Communist China, an American-based voting software company and the data of American election workers. One was published on Oct 3, 2022, and the second on Oct 4, 2022. Breitbart provides the details: On October 3, the New York Times published an article by reporter Stuart Thompson titled “How a Tiny Elections Company Became a Conspiracy Theory Target,” in which he claimed that “election deniers” were targeting Konnech, a Michigan election software firm with just 21 U.S. employees, and had developed a theory with “threadbare evidence” that the company had tied to the Chinese Communist …

Ivermectin cut COVID mortality by 92%, study

Despite the mainline media referring to Ivermectin as a horse dewormer, when people claimed that it was an effective treatment for COVID, a major, peer-reviewed study confirmed the medication significantly reduced COVID deaths. The Daily Skeptic reports: Regular use of ivermectin led to a 100% reduction in hospitalisation rate, a 92% reduction in mortality rate and an 86% reduction in the risk of dying from a COVID-19 infection when compared to non-users, a major new study has found. The study, published in the medical journal Cureus, analysed data from 223,128 people from the city of Itajaí in Brazil and is the largest study of its kind, giving its findings a high degree of certainty. Senior author Dr. Flavio A. Cadegiani wrote on Twitter: “An observational study with the size and level of analysis as ours is hardly achieved and infeasible to be conducted as a randomised clinical trial. Conclusions are hard to be refuted. Data is data, regardless of your beliefs.” READ: Ivermectin Cuts Covid Mortality by 92%, Major Study Finds – Why is it …

Study: Obsessively watching the news can make you sick

If you are obsessed with watching the news, a study out of Texas Tech University suggests it could be bad for your health, Study Finds reports. In fact, the researchers noted that those who daily check the headlines will experience “significantly greater physical ill-being,” both physically, mentally and emotionally in the form of anxiety and stress. The study, which involved 1,100 people, added that one in six people had what researchers described as an addiction to the news. Study Finds reports: This can start interfering with people’s personal lives, leaving them feeling powerless and distressed about global events including the pandemic, the war in Ukraine, and climate change. […] Almost three-quarters (73.6%) with severe levels of problematic news consumption experienced mental ill-being “quite a bit” or “very much” compared with just eight percent of all participants overall. The study also found that more than three in five (61%) news addicts experienced physical ill-being “quite a bit” or “very much” compared with just six percent of everyone else.

Free speech beats Big Tech in Texas court case

Free speech was the big winner and Big Tech was the big loser in a recent Texas court case. Two organizations had taken the state of Texas to court after it passed a law banning Social media corporations, with over 50 million monthly users, from censoring speech on their platforms based on the user’s political leanings. PJ Media provides more details: On Sept. 9, 2021, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed House Bill 20 into law. In a statement, Abbott summarized the new law: “House Bill 20 prevents social media companies with more than 50 million monthly users banning users simply based on their political viewpoints. The law also requires several consumer protection disclosures and processes related to content management on the social media sites to which the bill applies. These sites must disclose their content management and moderation policies and implement a complaint and appeals process for content they remove, providing a reason for the removal and a review of their decision. They also must review and remove illegal content within 48 hours. House Bill 20 also prohibits …

Facebook quashed stories about Hunter Biden because of FBI

A recent poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports found that 53% of Americans believed there is a politicized element within the FBI that works as “Joe Biden’s personal Gestapo.” And that seems to have been confirmed by an admission by Facebook CEO Mark Zukerberg, who said the social media giant banned, censored, gagged, suppressed, stifled, and restricted any news about information found on Hunter Biden’s laptop, after being contacted by the FBI. Hunter Biden, of course, is the much-maligned son of US President Joe Biden. His laptop contained rafts of information on how he used his political connection to wrangle deals that allegedly included companies in Communist China. The Daily Wire reports: Zuckerberg told podcast king Joe Rogan that the FBI, which by then had been in possession of the laptop for nearly a year, contacted top Facebook officials weeks before the election to warn them that a major dump of Russian disinformation was coming. When the New York Post broke the story, Twitter kicked the news site off its platform, and Facebook, Zuckerberg said, downranked …

YouTube’s shocking announcement, people can now say facemasks don’t work

In a shocking announcement, it seems that YouTube will no longer ban any videos that state facemasks are all but useless when it comes to stopping the spread of COVID: Of course, research has been showing how ineffective facemasks were since 2020, but YouTube would not allow anyone to disagree with the government’s propaganda.

Google pays US$43 million for misleading Australian users

An Australian court has just ordered Google to pay US$42.7 because it misled users on how much data the Tech giant was collecting on them through their android devices, The Blaze reports. According to the suit, Google was in violation of Australian Consumer Law when it misled an estimated 1.3 million Google account holders and tracked their personal locations. Google has agreed to pay the fine. The Blaze explains: “This significant penalty imposed by the Court today sends a strong message to digital platforms and other businesses, large and small, that they must not mislead consumers about how their data is being collected and used,” said ACCC Chair Gina Cass-Gottlieb. “Personal location data is sensitive and important to some consumers, and some of the users who saw the representations may have made different choices about the collection, storage and use of their location data if the misleading representations had not been made by Google,” Cass-Gottlieb added.

Babylon Bee’s Seth Dillon warns that ‘truth’ is under attack

Seth Dillon is the CEO of the Babylon Bee, a popular website that publishes satirical stories on current news events. Dillon is also a Christian and this past week spoke at Cornerstone Chapel in Leesburg, Virginia, where he warned that truth is under attack across America. The Christian Post reports. “We’re living in crazy times, unusually crazy times, actually outrageous times where absurdity is everywhere,” Dillon began. “Truth is under attack. Reason is under attack.” “Comedy is under attack. And you can’t speak up and try to defend any of these things, or they try to suppress your voice and silence you.

Enviro fanatic hails the benefits of a US-China war and COVID?

Apparently, a member of our esteemed media is suggesting that a war between the US and Communist China would be good because it will help stop global warming. And yes, he allegedly also wrote about the benefits of COVID for the same reason. It happened recently after Communist China threatened military action if US House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, visited Taiwan on her recent visit to to Asia. Breitbart provides more details: South China Morning Post (SCMP) North American bureau chief Robert Delaney published a bizarre editorial on Tuesday in which he suggested a war between America and China, sparked by Beijing making good on its threat of a military response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) visit to Taiwan, could be even better than the coronavirus pandemic for reducing the world’s carbon footprint. Delaney’s long screed, which only got around to his give-war-a-chance grand finale in the final paragraphs, included hosannas for the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic as the luckiest break for the climate change movement in generations, since it significantly reduced energy consumption and emissions.

American trust in mainstream media at historic lows

According to a recent Gallup poll, America’s trust in the mainstream has fallen to a historic low, Forbes reports. The poll found that only 16% of US adults state they had ‘quite a lot’ or ‘great’ confidence in the mainstream newspapers, and only 11% said the same about television news. Equally, concerning is that the level of trust is down 5% on both accounts from a similar poll taken last year. Not surprisingly, the trust in the legacy media is highest among Democrats. In terms of television news, 20% of Democrats said they still trusted this medium, compared to just 8% of Independents and 8% of Republicans. When it came to the legacy newspapers, only 35% of Democrats fully trusted this news source, compared to 12% of Independents and 8% of Republicans.

Ten stories from this week

Here are a ten news stories, that caught my attention, this past week. Prophetic word about draft, fulfilled in the very last pick in 2021 NFL draft Grant Stuard was an all-conference linebacker while playing for the University of Houston. His dad was in prison several times and his drug-addict mother worked strip clubs to feed her habit, leaving Grant to raise his four siblings. There had been hints he would be drafted in the 2021 NFL draft, and a friend even gave a prophetic word, that this would happen.

Here is a brief round-up of some Christian news this past week: Christ Pratt talks about religion Hollywood actor Chris Pratt found himself in a bit of controversy this past week, when in an interview with Men’s Health, Pratt said that he was not religious, but added that he had a relationship with God. “I think there’s a distinction between being religious — adhering to the customs created by man, oftentimes appropriating the awe reserved for who I believe is a very real God — and using it to control people, to take money from people, to abuse children, to steal land, to justify hatred. Whatever it is,” Pratt explained. When asked if he attended Hillsong, which has found itself in a pile of controversy recently, Pratt said he attended Zoe Church in Los Angeles.

Did a reporter try to infiltrate Sean Feucht’s intercessor group?

In his last message to the elders of the church at Ephesus, the Apostle Paul warned them to be on alert for wolves that were going to attack the flock (Acts 20:29-31). Jesus issued a similar warning, but with a slight twist. He said beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing. 15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” (Matthew 7:15 ESV) The Lord said there would be people who would purposefully try to infiltrate the church, pretending to be spiritual and like-minded. And if possible, some may even try to worm their way into leadership positions. And worship leader Sean Feucht got a lesson on how easily this can happen when a reporter tried to infiltrate one of his groups. Over the past two years, Feucht held worship/prayer sessions across the US, including spots where the riots took place and the street where George Floyd died. Most recently, Feucht has set up intercessor groups to pray for the Supreme Court decision on the potential overturning of Roe …
