And Gore, not se far as I can throw him… Vince May 05 2018 at 12:22 am Not as far as I can toss Freedom Tower! Though It would be interesting to have him visit my area in July… just to see if it snows…. Bill G May 05 2018 at 7:23 am If he schedules an event … WayneM May 05 2018 at 12:16 am Veritas is now “outing” teacher’s union dregs who chortle about protecting scoundrels and criminals… James O’Keefe is speaking truth to power!! Fronk! May 05 2018 at 2:49 am What kind of country have we become where people in authority are regularly caught on camera, gleefully discussing their methodology for selling the body parts of aborted babies (e.g. “I use a less crunchy technique…”) and surreptitiously banning free speech? The time has come to put an end to this madness! Thank you Project Veritas for exposing the truth! FCin NH May 05 2018 at 9:17 am Dan Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress were the ones exposing Planned Parenthood, not Project Veritas, though I think Project Veritas inspired Daleiden. Veritas goes after the hypocritical Left, and has done some excellent work exposing the underhanded actions of Democratic operatives especially during this last election. He shouldn’t feel all that bad about the Post catching him. It indicates that the Post makes some effort to ascertain the truth, at least on some occasions.My recollection is that the story they were peddling to the Post was a little over the top, and the Post was a little more “once burnt, twice shy” about obvious anti-Trump stories. That’s actually a good thing, and the fact that they tumbled to what was up merely means they aren’t *quite* as venal as expected. Nobody bats a thousand, and you’d have to expect to lose an agent or two. What Veritas does is essentially espionage since the “targets” will never acknowledge publicly what they are dong or how they feel. cb May 05 2018 at 8:21 am Oh… AlGoreZeera, is he still about? OldGoat36 May 05 2018 at 8:51 am With so many of these tech giants who are leftists, and how these tools are useful in tracking and altering the voices that get more exposure, it just makes me wonder how much the deep state is involved with them and helped push them to become so big. Google, Farce Book (which pushed others out of the picture), Twitter, Snapchat, the lists go on and on. It just becomes a bit too convenient that left wing venues like this grow so exponentially while more benign venues that offer similar features wither and die. It doesn’t seem quite so coincidental when taken in totality. JTC May 05 2018 at 10:25 am Think about them all as what they are, or were…just platforms, accumulators, storehouses, and disseminators of information. The growth was exponential but after a while required a little tweak to maintain that growth curve and critical mass. Deceit then engenders deceit, and each fabrication must outdo the last one. And after a while it becomes necessary to control messages contrary to your own, to pander to the noisy side to keep them on your side…squeaky wheels get grease and grease keeps the perpetual motion machine (aka money machine) rolling along. But then you yourself lose track of what is the truth, believing not only the grossly slanted output of information from the platform’s users, but that of the platform itself as it furiously endeavors to give them what they want, and keep the growth (money) flowing. And then…you yourself, the ostensibly neutral storehouse and facilitator of information, begin to believe the totally gerrymandered “facts” yourself…what is happening to various new media is what happened to the old ones…ultimate irrelevance stemming from a loss of mission, direction, and truth. That’s what happened to Clinton too; what was “known” was wrong, what were “facts” were fabrications, and what was the “majority” was just what was visible among the signalers and their enablers. The truth came out in November 2016 and the empress was exposed to have no clothes (shudder). Right now the media misanthropes are starting to look nekkid too, and it ain’t pretty. They too like the Beast will wither (shudder again) and die. Delilah T May 05 2018 at 6:11 pm Gee, I have frequently referred to Gorbull as That Fat Basterd, and it slips by them. They have no idea whom I’m referring to. They think they’re clever, but in truth are only as clever as their next endeavor. But then, I don’t bother with the lame Universe of Social Mindlessness. There are far, far better things to do with your time than to preoccupy yourself with that, unless you’re looking for sources of comic material. RegT May 07 2018 at 12:03 am I use Farcebook to attempt to educate friends and family (although I keep everything “public”) about things they won’t get from the MSM. The vileness of islam, the murder of babies, the slimy behavior of politicians and bureaucrats, and the smelly vomitus of the Left in general. Whenever I refer to the Supreme Leader of FB, I write about what that “Mother Zucker” is up to at that moment. I discovered that FB rates me as very conservative, but so far I’ve had no mention of my label for that immature little prick, and no episodes of being banned. However, they could be shadow banning the hell out of my posts, and I wouldn’t know it, since there aren’t a lot of people responding to my stuff. Much of what I post is forwarded from Jihad Watch, Breitbart, and other conservative sites.
