If I was Donald Trump or the head of the RNC that’s the Press Release I would be issuing in English and spanish. The Spanish version saying:

Periódico propiedad de Amazon.com ataca al culto de Nuestra Sra. de Guadalupe durante la época Navideña

after seeing this Headline at the Washington Post.

Our culture of purity celebrates the Virgin Mary. As a rape victim, that hurts me.

Yes you’re reading that right.

That a protestant reverend is going after the very first Christian, who said “Yes” to God makes it even more ironic.

Of course if you don’t like my suggest press release or don’t want to hit Amazon which might claim they have no editorial control you could go with this in English:

“Washington Post attacks devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe during the week of her feast”

Or in spanish:

“El Washington Post ataca a Nuestra Sra. de Guadalupe en la semana de su Fiesta”

The best part of such a PR release is it has the virtue of being true.

Oh and I’d repeat this is Spanish during the feast of Our Lady of divine providence (Nuestra Senora de la divina providencia) patron of Puerto Rico and the feast of Our Lady of Altagracia (Nuestra Senora de la Altagracia) the patron of the Dominican Republic too.

You know perhaps if the MSM had at least one or two  devout daily mass Catholics they might have figured out this was a bad idea.

I’d suggest praying for the Reverend Everheart for relief of her trauma and ask Our Lady to help her, The Memorare would be appropriate:

REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

You can do the same for the editors at the Post and the folks at Amazon, you might think they are beyond Help but with God all things are possible.

My thanks to Fausta for the Spanish translations.

John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign chairman, is hoppin’ mad about the alleged Russian plot to hack Hillary’s campaign, and wails that Something is deeply broken at the FBI.

Where was Podesta in July and in November when the campaign was touting that the FBI had cleared Hillary of wrongdoing by focusing on intent – that is, by essentially rewriting federal law?

Podesta’s op-ed in the WaPo alleges (emphasis added),

There are now reports that Vladimir Putin personally directed the covert campaign to elect Trump. So are teams of FBI agents busy looking into the reported meeting in Moscow this summer between Carter Page, a Trump foreign policy adviser, and the Putin aide in charge of Russian intelligence on the U.S. election? What about evidence that Roger Stone was in contact with WikiLeaks and knew in advance that my hacked emails were about to be leaked? Are thousands of FBI person-hours being devoted to uncovering Trump’s tangled web of debts and business deals with foreign entities in Russia and elsewhere?

I find it ironic that Podesta points to “tangled webs” with Russia, when the State Department, which his boss headed, approved hundreds of Bill Clinton’s speeches, which totaled millions of dollars for the Clintons’ foundation, including

In Russia, Bill Clinton gave two speeches for $625,000. One was to the Russian investment bank, Renaissance Capital, at a 2010 event titled “Russian and the Commonwealth of Independent States: Going Global.”

The State Department background memo described the bank as “focused on the emerging markets of Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Sub-Saharan Africa.”

Regarding Podesta’s emails, Wikileaks has already asserted that (emphasis added)

Our source is not the Russian government,” Assange told “The Sean Hannity Show.”

“So in other words, let me be clear,” Hannity asked, “Russia did not give you the Podesta documents or anything from the DNC?”

“That’s correct,” Assange responded.

Let’s also not forget that Podesta and Hillary didn’t care that she used, during all her years of tenure as Secretary of State, an unsecured server, making all her communications  (and thereby the country’s national security) vulnerable to real hacking by not just Russia, but by anyone with enough talent and resources.

Rather than provide actual evidence that there was a) a Russian “covert campaign to elect Trump,” b) that was working in cahoots with the Trump campaign, and c) that Vladimir Putin personally directed the “covert campaign,” Podesta relies on links to the WaPo’s own articles on unnamed intelligence sources.

However, National Intelligence Director James Clapper, FBI Director James Comey and CIA Director John Brennan were too busy to brief Congress on any of this. John Hinderaker asks,

Who in the United States intelligence community has created the hysteria about Russian hacking, and what is the evidence of means and motive? House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes sought a briefing by National Intelligence Director James Clapper with participation from FBI Director James Comey and CIA Director John Brennan in a closed session yesterday. They, however, would prefer not to. USA Today reports that they refused to appear for the requested briefing.

What’s happening here? Megyn Kelly sought an answer from committee member Peter King (video below). Concerned citizens looking for answers won’t get much satisfaction here. “It’s almost as if people in the intelligence community are carrying out a disinformation campaign against the President-elect of the United States,” King said. “It’s absolutely disgraceful.”

“Somebody had the time to leak it to the Washington Post, but they don’t have the time to come to Congress. It is the House Committee on Intelligence that absolutely has the jurisdiction over the CIA and the intelligence community,” he said. “It is their job to come. They don’t have any choice.”

Last but not least, Podesta says there are “teams of FBI agents busy looking into the reported meeting in Moscow this summer between Carter Page, a Trump foreign policy adviser, and the Putin aide in charge of Russian intelligence on the U.S. election,” while at the same time he bemoans that Something is deeply broken at the FBI.

If something is “deeply broken” at an organization, would you rely on “teams of their agents”?

Would it be much of a stretch, then, to ask whether Podesta would complain at all, had Hillary won? Obama certainly wouldn’t.

They say those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.

So when I saw this story at Drudge:

Facebook is going to start fact-checking, labeling, and burying fake news and hoaxes in its News Feed, the company said Thursday.

I remembered this:

Just after the Islamic Terror attack on the gay nightclub Pulse, Facebook, you know those guys who insist they are not censoring conservatives, decided to take strong action…against one of the most prominent opponents and a onetime target of Islamic terror Pam Geller

and this

Facebook doesn’t acknowledge a bias problem, the only see a “Trust” problem, thus they will hold “dialogues” in the hope of showing “progress” in the hopes that these visuals will cause conservatives to believe they are doing something.

Alas for facebook, not only is the bias problem real but as reported at The Lid , the Israel Law Center (Shurat HaDin) was able to prove it by setting up a pair of “hate” sites one anti-jewish & one anti Palestinians gradually ramping up the rhetoric on both until they both called for the death of their targets. Then they reported each site to facebook.

Jeff Tells us what happened:

and this

and of course this:

Speaking at Facebook’s annual conference F8 last week, Zuckerberg launched into an attack on Republican front-runner Donald Trump’s policies. It’s not surprising that Zuckerberg, who has been a big fan of H-1B visas that critics say hold wages down for programmers and software engineers hired by companies such as Facebook, doesn’t think much of Trump’s plan to limit immigration. But so what? Lots of people are for open borders, even people who, unlike Zuckerberg, don’t stand to make billions off of them.

Somewhat more troubling was that a bunch of Facebook employees asked Zuckerberg whether there was anything they could do to stop a Trump presidency: “What responsibility does Facebook have to help prevent President Trump in 2017?”

And then I think ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

After all of these recent examples of Facebook bias could any sane conservative seriously consider trusting facebook to not use “fact checking” as a weapon to censor conservatives while promoting a liberal agenda?

If you do then then shame on you, Cue Scotty:
