Facebook removes 'any and all mentions' of alleged whistleblower's name


Facebook is removing from its platform any mention of the name of the potential whistleblower who ignited the current Democratic-led impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

Facebook is also cracking down on media outlets that post the whistleblower's name, saying to do so is a violation of the social media giant's community standards and policies, Breitbart reported.

The conservative news outlet said Facebook removed a post from Breitbart's page that pointed out other respected media publications have named the whistleblower.

The whistleblower's name is also mentioned in special counsel Robert Mueller's reported (on page 283) and in a transcript from Ambassador Bill Taylor's closed-door testimony, which was made public.

Breitbart said that it received a notification from Facebook that the outlet's news page was "at risk of being unpublished," due to publishing the alleged whistleblower's name.

In response to an inquiry from Breitbart, Facebook released the following statement: "Any mention of the potential whistleblower’s name violates our coordinating harm policy, which prohibits content 'outing of witness, informant, or activist.'"

"We are removing any and all mentions of the potential whistleblower’s name and will revisit this decision should their name be widely published in the media or used by public figures in debate," the statement read.

Some other outlets that have included the name of the alleged whistleblowers in their stories are RealClearInvestigations, The Western Journal, The Federalist and the Washington Examiner.

Rush Limbaugh -- who is the most popular talk radio host in the country, with an audience of millions -- devoted a lengthy segment to discussing the whistleblower on air by name late last month.

The president's oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., also shared a Breitbart story that identified the alleged whistleblower in a tweet.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham told reporters Tuesday on Capitol Hill that the whistleblower statute does not protect the identity of the individual, but only shields the person from facing retribution in their employment with the federal government.

"The whistleblower statute was never meant to give you anonymity," Graham said. "It was meant to allow you to come forward without being fired."

"You can't use anonymity in a criminal process. You can't use anonymity in a civil process," he added. "This is a misuse of the statute."

Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz told Fox News on Thursday, "What we read about now is that suddenly it is a new crime to publish the name of a whistleblower."

"I spent this afternoon searching the statute books, I simply couldn't find that crime," Dershowitz said. "It is so dangerous for political opponents to invent new crimes without having them passed by the legislature."

The legal scholar further pointed out that the Constitution prevents the legislature from creating new crimes and then applying them retroactively.

Tweets surfaced earlier this week in which one of the whistleblower's attorneys, Mark Zaid, in the days after Trump took office in January 2017 wrote that the "coup has started," and "impeachment will follow ultimately."

“45 years from now we might be recalling stories regarding the impeachment of @realDonaldTrump. I’ll be old, but will be worth the wait,” Zaid wrote.

Trump highlighted the tweets at a rally in Monroe, Louisiana, on Wednesday night.

"It's all a hoax. It's a scam," he said of the impeachment inquiry.

‘I’ll f**king bury you!’ McAfee vows to expose corrupt US officials & CIA agents if ‘disappeared’



Bitcoin evangelist John McAfee has threatened to “bury” the US government if they keep harassing him over unpaid taxes, promising to leak a huge trove of files proving corruption throughout Washington and its allies.

I’ve collected files on corruption in governments. For the first time, I’m naming names and specifics,” McAfee warned in a string of tweets stretching back to Sunday. Vowing to release over 31 terabytes of “incriminating data” to the press if arrested or otherwise “disappeared,” he posted the names of a “corrupt CIA agent and two Bahamian officials” along with claims they’d taken bribes and been involved with drug trafficking, apparently to show he was not bluffing.

He also promised to release the names of “25 Congressmen and 5 Senators, from both Parties, who are coming up for re-election in 2020, and who MUST be recalled, and if that fails, booted out of office on election day” on Friday.

Claiming the Department of Justice was cooking up murder, racketeering and money-laundering charges against him in the hope of extraditing him from the Bahamas and locking him up for tax evasion, McAfee pointed out that the last attempt at framing him – when authorities in Belize raided his home and charged him with running a drug operation – failed.

“The US Government has never faced a foe like me before,” McAfee declared, promising to “suffer this onslaught no longer.”

McAfee has been the target of a murder accusation before. In March, a Florida court found him liable in a $25 million “wrongful death” suit, after the estate of his deceased neighbor in Belize accused him of hiring a hitman to torture the man to death. He was never actually charged with the murder, and he dismissed the lawsuit as “frivolous.

The programmer, who made millions off his McAfee AntiVirus software and later made millions more off Bitcoin, admitted in January that he hasn’t filed his income taxes in eight years, and gave several reasons for not doing so, including “I’m done making money” and the always popular “Taxation is illegal.

McAfee announced in January he was running for president “in exile” on a platform promoting the use of cryptocurrencies. Currently living aboard a yacht in the Caribbean he has called the “freedom boat,” he claimed he would use “masked doppelgängers” to campaign in the US.

I Am a Witness to Brainwashing in Public Schools


According to the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation’s (VOC) fourth “Annual Report on US Attitudes Toward Socialism, Communism, and Collectivism,” today’s youth is quite fond of political-economic systems that have resulted in more than 100 million deaths over the past century. At the same time, these misguided youths are increasingly hostile toward the political-economic system that has lifted countless millions more out of abject poverty over the same period.

“This year’s study showed increased support for communism (36 percent) among Millennials compared to 2018. Opinions of capitalism took a steep decline from 2018 to 2019, with only one-in-two among Millennials (ages 23-38) and Generation Z (ages 16-22) having a favorable opinion of capitalism,” the report noted.

Here are a few other “key takeaways” from VOC’s report:

  • “70 percent of Millennials say they are likely to vote socialist.”
  • “15 percent of Millennials think the world would be better off if the Soviet Union still existed.”
  • “About one-in-five Millennials (22 percent) believe that ‘society would be better if all private property was abolished,’ compared to 1 percent of the Silent Generation.”
  • “45 percent of Generation Z and Millennials believe that ‘all higher education should be free.’”
  • “About one-in-four Americans (27 percent) across every generation see President Trump as the ‘biggest threat to world peace’ over Kim Jong-Un (22 percent) and Vladimir Putin (15 percent).”
  • “Only 57 percent of Millennials believe the Declaration of Independence better ‘guarantees freedom and equality’ over the Communist Manifesto.”

You may be thinking: How is this possible?

I think I have an answer for you. The U.S. education system is brainwashing today’s youth to believe that capitalism is evil while also indoctrinating students with utopian, false, and fairy-tale notions about socialism and communism.

Although this may sound like hyperbole, I have experienced this miseducation first-hand. Long story short, while teaching U.S. History, World History, Economics, and American Government for five (long) years to high school students in the Chicago suburbs and in Bluffton, South Carolina, I was absolutely shocked and dismayed. In both of my experiences, the “state standards,” which dictate the curriculum, were chock full of pro-socialist, anti-capitalist rhetoric.

If you think I am exaggerating, think again. Below are a few examples of “It is Essential for Students to Know” from the South Carolina US History and Constitution Learning Standards for a few historical periods.

Post-Civil War Industrialization: “Students should understand that economic growth started in the first half of the century … was fostered by both government actions and changes in each of the factors of production. It is important to emphasize the role of government in providing the business environment in which entrepreneurs could be successful because it is a common misunderstanding that government impedes economic growth and that American individualism was sufficient to promote America’s emergence as an industrial power in the late nineteenth century.”

The Gilded Age: “Entrepreneurs used new technologies and new business tactics to create large corporations to control their industry. … Critics of these entrepreneurs and unfettered capitalism questioned whether the interests of the so-called ‘Robber Barons’ were protected too much by government. … It is important for students to understand that unfettered competition led to economic uncertainty and periodic depressions and eventually to a public call for government regulation of monopolistic practices.”

The New Deal: “The New Deal was not an attempt to introduce socialism in the United States, although that is what its critics claimed. Indeed, many historians argue that because of New Deal policies, capitalism was saved. Although New Deal policies alleviated some suffering and offered hope to Americans in their bleakest hour, they did not solve the economic problems of the Depression. Rather, massive government spending during World War II ended the Depression.”

The Great Society: “Johnson’s vision of the Great Society led to the establishment of Medicare and Medicaid and the initiation of the War on Poverty. These economic programs helped to insure that the poor and the elderly received health care. They also reduced the poverty rate. … These programs extended the government’s commitment to social welfare that started with the New Deal.”

The Reagan Era: “Reaganomics and defense spending, as well as globalization, had a long term impact on the economy that is still being debated today. Yearly budget deficits due to increased defense spending contributed to a tripling of the national debt. The failure of many deregulated financial institutions led to the need for massive bailouts that further added to the debt and the crisis in economic confidence in the 1980s and again in 2008.”

Keep in mind, the standards are only one element of what teachers teach. A far larger problem, in my opinion, is the blatant pro-government, anti-business bias that most teachers openly flaunt in the classroom. Unless and until there is a massive reform of our public-school system (such as universal school choice), the problem is likely to become worse before it becomes better.
