British Activists Help To Take Down ‘The Federalist’ And Others
Two leading conservative/anti-left wing websites – The Federalist and ZeroHedge – were reportedly banned from using Google ads to generate revenue following a campaign by British Muslim activists who have latched onto the “Black Lives Matter” campaign in order to silence right-wing voices.
NBC News reports:
Google’s ban of the websites comes after the company was notified of research conducted by the Center for Countering Digital Hate, a British nonprofit that combats online hate and misinformation. They found that 10 U.S-based websites have published what they say are racist articles about the protests, and projected that the websites would make millions of dollars through Google Ads.
Although Google said later on Tuesday that they were working with the Federalist to remove content and reinstate ads, there has been no such announcement for ZeroHedge.
The Center for Countering Digital Hate is the latest in a long line of anti-free speech organizations and is headed by a UK government consultant named Imran Ahmed.
Ahmed, the front man of the organization, told reporters on Tuesday: “We found that lots of those companies are inadvertently funding through their advertising content that is outright racist in defense of white supremacism and contains conspiracy theories about George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement.”
Neither The Federalist nor ZeroHedge host “white supremacism” or “racist” content and neither have peddled “conspiracy theories” about George Floyd or Black Lives Matter.
In fact, Twitter recently reinstated the account of ZeroHedge, having “erroneously” banned the entity for breaking news about the outbreak of the coronavirus and its potential links to a Wuhan lab, rather than a wet market.
Nevertheless the Center for Counter Digital Hate – a UK limited company which curiously uses Americanized spelling – targeted the two websites for its censorious campaign.
Ahmed is in fact a member of the British government’s Commission for Countering Extremism, led by British Muslim Sara Khan, author of the book The Battle for British Islam.
Khan – who advocates for a more modern and moderate Islam – was criticized by both Muslims and non-Muslims as having no legitimacy in the subject area of “countering extremism” upon her appointment.
The other Steering Committee members of the UK government task force are former police chief Sir Mark Rowley who oversaw a massive violent crime increase in London; Islamic activist Yasmin Waljee OBE; hard left activist and refugee rights campaigner Cllr Simon Blackburn (Labour Party); Soros-funded anti-Brexit campaigner Sunder Katwala; left-wing MediaCom executive Claire McAlpine; and Imran Ahmed, who has also worked for Labour Party members of the UK parliament.
Bizarrely, the entity was founded by a Conservative government in 2018, and states in its charter that its commissioners are appointed by the Home Secretary (the interior minister for the UK). The current Home Secretary, Priti Patel, often takes a harder line on immigration issues, and has been vocal against the Black Lives Matter-inspired riots in the UK.
The fact that a UK limited company run by open border, pro-Islam activists as well as a UK government-led task force have forced two conservative publications into financial dire straits ahead of an election is certain to raise eyebrows in the United States.
Speaking exclusively to The National Pulse, Congressman Paul Gosar (R-AZ) said of the Google moves at the behest of a left-wing UK company:
“This appears to be a blatant effort to interfere with our U.S. elections by silencing perceived conservative voices to suppress the vote for President Trump and other conservatives.
“Such foreign interference by a shady U.K. group has no business in our domestic politics.
“I will be asking Attorney General Barr to add Google to the list of subpoena recipients for the ongoing investigation into election interference, censorship and foreign meddling.
The empty, overused and impotent claim of ‘racism’ is a thin pretext to censor opposing views from The Federalist and Zero Hedge, none of which have a history of publishing racist content.”
The Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) is endorsed by race-industry obsessives including the Tell MAMA organization run by Fiyaz Mughal. Tell MAMA – which purports to represent the safety of British Muslims – lost government funding in 2013 for misrepresenting “hate crime” data.
CCDH is also backed by the Hope Not Hate group, which has links to Marxist agitators through the Unite Against Fascism group which once saw terrorist Michael Adebolajo – who murdered British soldier Lee Rigby – speak at one of their rallies.
Hope Not Hate’s founder Nick Lowles was actually banned from a left wing, Black students event in 2016 over claims of discriminatory behavior.
Meanwhile, Google continues its work with the Chinese Communist Party and its assets in the United States, as the National Pulse first reported.

Something New Spotted In The DC Sky
What’s happening right now in DC is bizarre, to say the least, and completely creepy and un-American.
DC looks like a scene straight out of the “Hunger Games,” and it’s creeping a lot of people out, and for good reason.
This is not the “American spirit” on display – it looks like we’re installing Kim Jong Un as the new US president, and it’s not sitting well with anyone, as far as I can tell online.
Biden’s claims that Ameria would experience a “dark winter” appear to be coming true…but he left out the “communist” part.
And now, things appear to get getting even creepier.
Someone just shot a video of a new “object” in the skies over the nation’s capital.
The video claims to be a clip of an “Osprey” flying over DC.
For those of you not hip to “military machinery” lingo an Osprey is described this way online:
The Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey is an American multi-mission, tiltrotor military aircraft with both vertical takeoff and landing, and short takeoff and landing capabilities. It is designed to combine the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft.
You can watch the video below:
Now I'm convinced something SERIOUS is going down…. Should absolutely know today if they're flying Marines in.. https://t.co/FmOPXgVgoF

Earlier today the Capitol was shut down and everyone went into complete panic mode when some smoke was seen off in the distance.

Later reports indicate this was some fire coming from a homeless camp, for crying out loud, but you can imagine the “fear porn” the state-run media ran with.
They really want to cook up a story here that MAGA is about to attack the country and that President Trump led this so-called insurrection.
If things are really this “dangerous” then call the whole thing off and do your install in private. There’s no reason, except “political theatre” at this point, to put on this Kim Jong Un “show of force.”
It’s weird, wrong, and further dividing an already divided country.

Testing For NYC’s Gifted And Talented Student Program Is Deemed Unfair, Will Be Eliminated
Most of New York City’s public schools offer a “gifted and talented” program for aspiring students. Yearly performance tests are offered to identify the kids who are overperforming in the standard disciplines. Those who qualify are entered into advanced placement programs with more demanding curricula, giving them an easier path to admission to better colleges. The programs are open to all and don’t cost anything extra, so every family has the opportunity to try to get their children in.
Unfortunately for Gotham’s parents, the results have failed to meet the expectations of the woke crowd running the city government. Both Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza have repeatedly complained that the testing program is “unfair” because the students who wind up in the program “don’t reflect the diversity of the city’s population.” In other words, not enough Black and Hispanic students wind up in the advanced programs. So how does the brain trust at City Hall plan to “fix” this issue? Easy as pie. They’re going to do away with the entrance tests. (CBS New York)
A big change is coming for New York City’s “gifted and talented” programs for students.
Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza say the city will start phasing out the entry exam.
Critics have said the composition of the programs do not reflect the city’s diversity.
The Chancellor took to Twitter to attempt to paint some lipstick on this pig.
Gifted & Talented programs serve a small percentage of children—but we know many more @NYCSchools students are exceptional. We must move away from the test & develop a system that reimagines academic and enrichment programming for our most exceptional students.
— Chancellor Richard A. Carranza (@DOEChancellor) January 13, 2021
So you’re going to “reimagine academic and enrichment programming for our most exceptional students?” What does that even mean? You can’t really have an advanced placement program without having some way to identify the students who are truly advanced and would be able to thrive in a more challenging educational environment. Aside from placement testing, how do you propose to do that?
Mayor de Blasio has been railing against the gifted and talented programs for years, but it’s always been a bit of a sticky issue for him to try to handle. The problem is that the “lack of racial diversity” he loves to complain about doesn’t break down in the normal fashion. If it was just a case where the lion’s share of the spots in the program were going to White students, he could simply play the race card and stomp on the programs. Unfortunately for them, that’s not the case. Year after year, the majority of the seats have gone to Asian students.
The difference in results is particularly stark when you look at the scores on a per capita basis. Asians make up only 14.1 percent of the city’s population, far behind Black, Hispanic and White residents. And yet their students outperform the rest by a wide margin. So this largely deprives de Blasio of the chance to play the race card. And if he eliminates the testing program, he’s going to be cutting off one of the city’s minority populations in a massively disproportionate fashion.
Sadly for the students who will be most heavily impacted, when Democratic politicians talk about minorities, they almost always forget about Asians. In their minds, the word “minority” only applies to Black and Hispanic residents, even though both outnumber Asians across the board in all but a few localized communities.
So if you’re going to do away with the admissions testing system, how do you replace that with something that produces your desired demographic result? If it just works out to be some sort of lottery, then why have an advanced studies program at all? You’re not going to randomly pick up the most advanced students. Further, how is that fair to the children? If a kid who isn’t able to score well on the placement tests suddenly gets shoved into a significantly more advanced program, they’re almost certainly going to flounder. Then you have to either boot them back to the regular school curriculum or dumb down the advanced class to the point where they can pass. If you follow the latter route, you’ve eliminated the benefit of having a gifted and talented program in the first place.
This is simply more virtue signaling from the de Blasio administration and racial pigeonholing madness. All they’re going to do is further erode the New York City public school system and make it even harder for kids to get into college. But that’s obviously a small price to pay when you’re trying to make it look like you’re actually fighting racism, I suppose.

Dr. Fauci Issues Another Dire Warning As Biden Vows To Lead With Science And Truth
Just when you thought civil unrest and other concerns had taken COVID-19 out of the public eye for a while, Dr. Anthony Fauci pops up again. Because you were not sufficiently panicked over a more contagious strain of COVID-19 found in the U.K., he has some more news. On Meet the Press, he told host Chuck Todd that “more ominous” strains have emerged out of South Africa and Brazil.
What does that mean? He can’t tell you, because they are still being studied. So, without articulating the risks these strains could pose, he injects this warning into the national consciousness. That is flat-out irresponsible in a nation that has been dragged through nearly a year of conflicting information, dystopian mitigation measures that affect the mental and economic health of millions, and the personal destruction of anyone offering any dissenting view to Fauci’s.
Viruses mutate. This is not news. A significant body of research posits that viruses most often mutate to become more transmissible and less virulent. The 1918 influenza that killed millions of people still circulates today. According to researchers from Yale, we needn’t worry unnecessarily about virus mutations, even in COVID-19
It is time to reshape our conception of mutations. Mutations are not indicative of outlandish and devastating new viral characteristics. Instead, they can inform our understanding of emerging outbreaks. Any claims over the consequences of mutation demand careful experimental and epidemiological evidence. Mutation is an inevitable consequence of being a virus.
Dr. Fauci offered no reason to refer to these new strains as “ominous,” or his claim that the U.K. strain is now dominant. There has been no corresponding spike in COVID-19 deaths in states that have been open since early summer. Looking at Georgia’s data, the trend is just the opposite. Despite a higher number of positive tests than in the early days of the pandemic, the deaths with COVID-19 are about half of what they were in the spring. This could be the result of an improvement in the treatment of the virus or because of a mutation to a less virulent strain. We don’t know and won’t without in-depth study.
The new panic porn comes just as President-elect Joe Biden has announced science’s primacy in his administration. He is reportedly elevating the director of science and technology policy to a cabinet-level position:
“We’re going to lead with science and truth,” Biden said at a speech introducing his new appointees in Delaware on Saturday. “We believe in both.”
The last year has been a preview of what happens when science rules all other considerations. There has been incredible pressure to do exactly what the scientists in the federal bureaucracy prescribed. Any outside points of view were quashed by the media, research institutions, and government employees. Letting only science dictate policy has had devastating results because the scientists have narrow expertise and a few goals related to it. Here are a few highlights from a list of the deleterious effects on personal health compiled by Tom Elliot from Grabien:
Deaths increasing among those on waiting lists whose treatment were displaced by COVID-19 lockdowns
Rising suicides nationwide
Drug overdoses in the U.S. have increased by 18%, with 40 states reporting an increase in opioid-related deaths
Lockdown measures for the pandemic could result in an additional 6.3 million cases of T.B. and 1.4 million deaths
25% of Americans 18-24 have contemplated suicide during the pandemic
Delays in treatment and screening for cancer that are forecasted to lead to avoidable deaths that could rival the pandemic
Death tolls from non-COVID-19 causes such as diabetes, heart attacks, and treatable cancers on the rise
This does not even consider the economic damage caused by the closure of small businesses and the effects that may last years for children deprived of in-person learning. This is the fundamental problem with letting science from the narrow field of epidemiology almost completely govern the response to COVID-19, excluding all other concerns.
Science is the pursuit of knowledge and is rarely “settled.” It is also best accomplished outside the government, where the process is not as vulnerable to political and other pressures. Science is not a religion you have faith in. Rather, you believe in the validity and utility of the scientific method. This distinction matters, and the results will be tragic if the distinction is not made.
