In no way do I support The Proud Boys but damn, freedom of speech is under attack in America. I would never take away a person’s right to freedom of speech. Facebook has is making it their personal business to take away the freedom of speech. They already put a ban on the right-wing nutjob, “Alex Jones”. Now they are moving to ban The Proud Boys and this will likely continue to give the right the impression they are the only ones being attacked by mainstream media and social media.
This organization has ties to white supremacist groups and has recently been involved in a fight against liberals in Manhattan, NY.
The Proud Boys, founded by provocateur and Vice founder Gavin McInnes, mainly relies on Facebook as its primary recruitment tool.
“Our team continues to study trends in organized hate and hate speech and works with partners to better understand hate organizations as they evolve. We ban these organizations and individuals from our platforms and also remove all praise and support when we become aware of it. We will continue to review content, Pages, and people that violate our policies, take action against hate speech and hate organizations to help keep our community safe.”
Per CNBC- A Russian woman who works for an oligarch close to Russian President Vladamir Putin has been charged with attempting to meddle in the 2018 midterm election.
The charges, filed Friday in the Eastern District of Virginia, accuse Elena A. Khusyaynova of St. Petersburg
of trying to - “create and amplify divisive social media and political content.”
Khusyaynova used social media to create thousands of fake accounts and emails to attack certain politicians such as:
John McCain, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Mitch McConnell, and former President Barack Obama. Notice that these names are not exactly on President Trump’s friend’s list. This information is coming just a day after former VP. Biden told the Democrats not to impeach Trump and to allow the full report to come out.
This is just the latest in the Russian meddling scandal that was fueled by now President Trump, who asked Russia to hack into Hillary Clinton’s email account and leak the 30,000 deleted emails to the public.
So finally we may get to see what all of the fuss about. Mueller is set to release key findings in the Russia probe.
Bloomberg News reported early Wednesday that Mueller has been under pressure to either bring more indictments or wrap it up.
This is great in so many ways. Most importantly, we can find out if this was all for naught. We can move on and Im sure there is something in this investigation that will make headlines.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is hoping that Democrats don’t attempt to impeach President Trump, at least not until after the midterms and more information comes out.
In an interview with CBS This Morning, Biden told host Norah O’Donnell that he doesn’t think “there’s a basis for doing that right now,” saying he hopes Democrats don’t initiate impeachment proceedings. Biden called on Democrats to wait until Special Counsel Mueller concludes his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, saying, “I think we should wait until the report comes out.”
This is smart advice being dished out about by former VP Biden to the Democratic party. Attempting to impeach Trump is not as easy as some would love to think. The information that is about to come out should help the Democrats build a case for impeachment.
If they shoot their shot too soon, they might as well prepare for the backlash.
Oh, Kanye met with Trump again. He didnt sound crazy this time around.
This spells trouble for Democrats.
Kanye is causing Black people to take a second look at the Republican party and even worse for Liberals, he is causing Black people to take a second look at the Democratic party.
I read several online comments with mixed reactions.
The one thing I noticed is that more and more Black people are siding with Kanye.
Of course, the liberal media is trying to downplay this but I predicted this a long time ago in an old Morrow World Post blog that was written. I asked the question, can Kanye win over Blacks for Trump? I called it the Kanye Effect.
Now I’m getting the answer to the question and the answer is "yes he can.”

So the Black community is tripping over Kanye going to meet Trump.
I don't agree with a lot of the things Trump says and I question his policies all the time but I cant help wonder why are people such as TI and Ebro so mad at Kanye. Online, I see people calling him Koonye. I dont think all of that is necessary.
Kanye went to the White House to talk about issues that concern him and should be a concern to all of us. I'm not a Trump supporter but how can I get mad at someone for going to talk to the man that can have a direct impact on a community, especially when it involves a city like Chicago.
A lot of people criticized the way Kanye spoke at the White House and said he sounds like a madman or somebody who is mentally ill. Just because we don't like the messenger, it doesn't mean we should kill the message.
It's funny that we forget that recently Kim Kardashian asked for a pardon for a Grandmother with a dam near life sentence. That pardon was granted.
Meeting with Trump is not going to solve everything but it can have an impact that can bridge the gap and get the ball rolling in the right direction.
