Twitter Executives Owe CIS a Big Apology

Is it hateful and mean-spirited to say illegal alien? Recently Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), received national attention because of a report that Twitter blocked his organization from promoting a paid tweet mentioning illegal aliens.  
According to Krikorian, Twitter stated the CIS ad violated its policy against “Hateful Content.” The “offensive” tweet is posted below:


CIS’s reference to “Illegal aliens made the otherwise innocuous tweet harmful.” In this instance, Twitter is wrong.  
In their zeal to protect individuals from hurtful words, Twitter employees flagged the U.S. government’s official designation for foreign nationals. U.S. Legal gives this definition of an illegal alien:
An Illegal alien or an Undocumented alien or worker is a foreign national who has entered the United States without legal permission, authorization or inspection; or who entered the U.S. legally but has since fallen out of status by overstaying or by violating the terms of legal entry. An illegal alien is subject to deportation if apprehended.
Twitter officials are either unaware or indifferent to how the government has classified foreign national for decades.  
CIS and other organizations are correct to use the official governmental designation to refer to persons in the country who lack proper papers. Other people may prefer to use euphemisms or to refer to these individuals as undocumented immigrants, unauthorized foreigners, or immigrants.
Traditionally, the legal definition for an immigrant is referred to as a person who entered another country legally with the intent of becoming a permanent resident. Although becoming a permanent resident might be the true motivation of millions of America’s undocumented foreigners, the decision to enter and reside in the country does not automatically make one an immigrant. 
Therefore, Twitter executives owe CIS a BIG apology.

Studies Show Horrific Contaminations of PCR Test Swabs

Studies Show Horrific Contaminations of PCR Test Swabs

This swab appears to have a fiberglass coating. This, of course, could rip, cut, and tear flesh, causing bleeding. Broken pieces could become lodged in the nose causing infection. This additional study concludes that material and chemical abnormalities in the material at the tip of the swab are likely responsible for damage to the nasal passage, resulting in bleeding and other injuries…

The Electric Vehicle Scam

The Electric Vehicle Scam

In order to match the 2,000 cars that a typical filling station can service in a busy 12 hours, an EV charging station would require 600, 50-watt chargers at an estimated cost of $24 million and a supply of 30 megawatts of power from the grid. That is enough to power 20,000 homes. It can take 30 minutes to 8 hours to recharge a vehicle between empty or just topping off. What are the drivers doing during that time?

Is the new Paxlovoid pill just a “reworked” ivermectin? What do you think of the data? Love the show. My question is, is it safe to take the provolone iodine with hypothyroid? There is a history of heart disease in my husband’s family so the thought of my boys getting any vac scares me, especially since I have 3 teenage sons. Will there be a ‘safe’ alternative? Will Novovax or Covax be safer?

Will Omicron Become Nature’s Miracle Vaccine?

After nearly two years into this pandemic, with the U.S. reporting a record high of more than 1 million new COVID-19 cases earlier this month, many are wondering when a sufficient number of the population will reach a level of “herd immunity” so that the virus can no longer find a place to reproduce. Might omicron actually be a blessing…

The black book(s) of Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffery Epstein’s partner in predatory sex services for influential people in and out of government, are the gifts that keep on giving, exposing the sexual predators, pedophiles, and rapists in the seats of power who command our patronage and pass our laws. Epstein and Maxwell’s purpose was to use these names to blackmail important politicians for money and influence…

Antifa Extremists Working for the FBI

For the past year, the DHS and FBI have been releasing incremental bulletins and training manuals defining who domestic terrorists are. The documents’ written words cannot be misinterpreted: it’s the US. Literally, anyone who has complained about COVID restrictions, the 2020 elections, the presidential transition, and now CRT, is a domestic terrorist…

It is not just time to stop the Joe Biden Administration either, as with but a few exceptions the Republicans are not doing anything to try and save our country. We need to stop the Republicans too. Let me be very clear⏤I am condemning the entire Federal Government of the United States. I’m condemning both Democrats and Republicans – moderates and extremists. I’m condemning the whole damned thing…

Biden’s COVID Speech; 2020 or 2022?

The next three years scares the heck out of me because of the weak and pathetic person we have in the Oval Office right now. And unfortunately, the fact is that there is no one in the long line of the current presidential succession who can step forward to lead this country in the normal day-to-day governing, much less in an emergency…
