People come to Pinterest for all kinds of things. But apparently, there's one thing users won't find on the app -- and that's tolerance. It was supposed to be a harmless site, a place for swapping recipes and planning kitchen remodels. Now we know: even the most innocuous platforms aren't immune from Big Tech's censorship. And if that's the case, conservatives are in trouble. Because the problem just got a whole lot worse than we thought.

WASHINGTON – Throughout our nation's history, we've often heard the term, "Freedom of the Press." But has America turned into a country where there is Unfreedom of the Press

That's the title of radio personality and author Mark Levin's new book and it comes at a critical time. In today's political landscape, in the age of Trump, catchphrases like, "fake news" and "enemy of the people" have stuck like glue to the mainstream media. So what are we to make of this rhetoric? Is it an exaggeration or could something even more drastic be going on?

"We expected some bloodshed -- to be hit by police batons, perhaps. That's what we expected. Live ammunition? No. Never." Wu'er Kaixi is one of the lucky ones. After 30 years, he can still look at what happened in Tiananmen Square from a distance -- not from behind prison bars, where hundreds wasted away -- or through the eyes of family, who lost everything. "I am the survivor of a massacre," the former student leader says quietly. "I have to live with the guilt."

“The problem with lying and deceiving is that their efficiency depends entirely upon a clear notion of the truth that the liar and deceiver wishes to hide.”

My son recently was looking for a company to work with concerning content that was needed for the videos that he would soon create. As he was doing so, I told him to find a package deal so it will be all-inclusive with music, images, fonts, etc.

A short while later, and in his excitement, he said that he found a company with which to work.  I asked him how much the package was and if it was all-inclusive?

To some people, it's just a Q-tip. But to the kids smuggled over the southern border, it could be the ticket out of a life of human trafficking. Thanks to Homeland Security's new pilot DNA program, one cheek swab is all it takes to find out which adults are gaming the system with children who aren't theirs. And this month, immigration officials have proven one thing: family separation isn't bad -- if they were never family to begin with!

Is that a threat or a promise? Either way, Alabamians probably had a good chuckle. When their governor signed the Human Rights Protection Act into law, the ACLU thought its tweet would have the state shaking in its boots. "You can't say we didn't warn you @GovernorKayIvey. See you in court." Well, obviously, the Left wasn't paying attention, since that was whole point! When Governor Ivey (R) signed the state's abortion ban into law, she did it with one eye on the unborn -- and the other on the U.S. Supreme Court. If liberals sue, she knows as well as we do: they'll be doing pro-lifers a favor.

Contrary to the reasoning of Stephen Goss (Opinion, 4-28-19 in an upstate newspaper) neither “illegal aliens” nor “legal immigrants” have a “moral right” to vote in local elections of the host country simply based on paying taxes locally. Stephen concedes only citizens’ should vote in state and national elections but feels “illegal aliens” and “legal immigrants” should be entitled to vote in local elections by vitue of paying some local taxes. But voting in local elections is just the first step to easily expanding the argument to state and national elections. After all there are income taxes, sales taxes and many other “taxes’ also paid by “illegal aliens” and “legal immigrants” too! Actually, drifters and transients even pay some form of local taxes such as Accommodations and Hospitality taxes. Should they vote? Once you get on local voting roles with the necessary state identification or driver’s license the next step to state and national elections is inevitable!
