Media’s Orwellian censorship on Hillary Clinton’s health: HuffPo deletes article; bans author who fears for his life

First, it’s the New York Times declaring and advocating abandoning objectivity in reporting on Trump. Then, another NYT writer urges Google to censor searches by concealing information on Hillary Clinton’s health.

Now, Huffington Post is actually resorting to post-publication censorship by deleting two articles on Hillary’s health and banning the author.

As reported by Paul Joseph Watson for InfoWars, yesterday, August 28, within hours after Huffington Post published a commentary piece by David Seaman discussing questions surrounding Hillary’s health problems, the article was deleted, followed by HuffPo banning Seaman altogether by revoking his posting rights.

The link to Seaman’s erstwhile article now contains an editor’s note stating, “This post is no longer available on the Huffington Post.”

In 2008, however, articles questioning John McCain’s health were heavily featured on Huffington Post.

In the YouTube video below (followed by my transcript), Seaman described HuffPo‘s censorship as “chilling” and “Orwellian,” and the media coverage of this election as totally biased. He now fears for his life.

Seaman said:

“It’s chilling. I haven’t really absorbed this. Huffington Post…they’ve revoked my publishing access and deleted both of my articles that were published earlier over the weekend. Both of my articles have been pulled without notice of any kind, just completely deleted from the Internet, and both of those articles mentioned Hillary’s health…and I linked to a video that YouTuber Joseph Paul Watson had uploaded back on August 4, showing signs that Hillary Clinton’s health is quite poor, showing something that appears to be either a seizure or involuntary muscle spasm while she was questioned by a number of reporters. That video…has been viewed more than 3.5 million times. So it was a very newsworthy thing for me to link out to, people are talking about it…. Whenever a video concerning a presidential candidate’s health is viewed more than 3.5 million times, somebody who’s under contract to Huffington Post and to AOL should be able to link out to that, especially as a journalist living in the United States of America should be able to link out to that without having their account revoked without any notice…late on a Sunday night…. This is really not good. I’ve written hundreds of stories, filed hundreds of stories over my years as a journalist and pundit, and I’ve never had anything like this happen…. I honestly have never seen anything like this. This is happening in the United States in 2016. It’s frankly chilling, I’m a little scared…. I’m doing this video also to say I am not suicidal right now. I am not a particularly clumsy person. I don’t own a car at the moment, I uber around everywhere. So if I am to slip in the shower over the next couple of days or something silly like that, we have to kind of employ probability and statistics here ’cause I am not a clumsy person, right. I am also not a depressed person right now. I am a person who’s spooked out though. This is extremely spooky. I don’t like it, and privately I’ve said to some of my friends what’s happening with some of the media companies in their coverage of this election, I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s scary, how they’re not even booking guests to do opposing views. It’s just these non-stop propaganda segments against Trump about how he’s so racist, these emotional knee-jerk points over and over again — that he’s racist, that he’s sexist, and he’s this and he’s that. But they’re ignoring one really big issue that’s starting to bubble up on the Internet. Certainly, I would not have posted about it had Paul Watson’s video had not already been viewed more than 3.5 million times…. And to delete my post about it without notice on a Sunday night and to revoke my access, which has never been done to me before…. I don’t know what to do. I just want to document it now while it’s all fresh. I’ve taken some screen shots, we now have this video, at least it will be archived, we can all spread the word. And in the morning, I can assure you when I’ve had a good night’s sleep I’m going to seek some very good legal counsel and see what the next steps here are.

Thank you again so much, everybody who watches this tonight. I don’t feel like I’m alone right now. Again, I am not depressed or anything, it just spooks me out. This is not good. This is not protection of my First Amendment right, not only as a citizen here publishing on U.S. soil. I’m not down in Brazil somewhere like Glen Greenwald. I’m not publishing controversial stuff; I just linked out to a fucking YouTube video that’s been viewed 3.5 million times since the beginning of this month. And for Huffington Post to delete those posts without notice, that is Orwellian, that’s a thing I read about in mainland China…. Something is up here; this is not unbiased coverage of this election.

Thank you, guys, for watching. And, again, thank you for having my back…. Just by watching this, you are a record of what’s going on. You can correct the record if something happens, and they start to spin some bullshit narrative. I’m perfectly fine, I’m not clumsy, I plan on reporting more on this certainly. Now the story is they’re deleting and censoring commentary on her health. Why is that?”

You heard him. Help David Seaman by spreading the word via your email and social media!

Here’s the video by Paul Joseph Watson to which Seaman posted a link in his now-deleted HuffPo article. The video has now been viewed more than 3.6 million times.

Sharp Shooter: Kim Rhode wins bronze, makes Olympic history

Obvious Bonus: She’s pro-Second Amendment.

From USA Today: Make it six straight for Kim Rhode. The 37-year-old American won a medal for her sixth consecutive Olympics on Friday, capturing bronze in the skeet shooting event at the Olympic Shooting Center.

It’s a stunning accomplishment from Rhode, who becomes the first female Olympian to medal in six consecutive games, and the first summer Olympian as well. Only Italian luger Armin Zoeggeler has done it on the men’s side.

Rhode’s bronze medal match ended in a shoot-off, after both she and China’s Meng Wei hit 15 of 16 clays. Rhode missed a clay in her first round of the shoot-off, but Meng followed by missing one of her own. Three rounds later, Meng missed her final clay to hand the bronze to Rhode.

Rhode lifted her arm to the sky when she realized she’d done it. She then walked over to the stands, where her husband handed her their 3-year-old son for a long hug. “Being a mom, having a son here, it’s amazing,” she said. “I hope that he remembers this. We’ve taken tons of pictures trying to capture the moment.”

Afterward, she said history was on her mind as she was shooting. “Most definitely,” she said. “When you’re in that bronze medal match, and you know you can walk away going for Olympic history or [nothing], yes, that was definitely on my mind.”

The crowd rose to give Rhode a standing ovation after the announcer told them history had just been made. Italians Chiara Cainero and Diana Bacosi won silver and gold, respectively.

Rhode’s Olympic history has been nothing short of dominant. She won gold in the 1996 Games in double trap at the age of 17, then followed up with bronze in Sydney, gold in Athens, silver in Beijing, and then gold in London. “Standing up there on the podium, it’s addicting,” Rhode said. “It keeps me coming back for more.” IOC president Thomas Bach was in the crowd for the event, catching a seat for history.

American Morgan Craft, 23, also competed in the event, but was eliminated in a semifinal shoot-off. Craft said after the final that she respected Rhode’s longevity, but doesn’t see herself competing in that many Olympics – her dream is to become a physician’s assistant.

Rhode has become an outspoken defendant of the second amendment in the United States. In a news conference before the start of the Games, Rhode spoke out about what it meant to her.

“We should have the right to keep and bear arms, to protect ourselves and our family,” she said. “The second amendment was put in there not just so we can go shoot skeet or go shoot trap. It was put in so we could defend our first amendment, the freedom of speech, and also to defend ourselves against our own government.”

This is Chiraq: 8 killed, 26 wounded in weekend shootings

Welcome to Chicago sign

From MyFoxChicago: Eight people were killed and at least 26 more have been wounded in shootings across Chicago since Friday night.

The weekend’s latest homicide happened early Sunday in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side, police said. Officers responding at 5:11 a.m. to a call of a person down in the 5200 block of West Ferdinand found the male lying on the ground, suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest, according to Chicago Police. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

About two hours earlier, a 31-year-old man was fatally shot Sunday morning on the Near West Side, police said. The 31-year-old was found on the sidewalk at 3:30 a.m. just south of the entrance to Touhy-Herbert Park in the 2100 block of West Adams Street, police said. The shooting occurred a half block west of Chicago Bulls College Prep. He suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

At 2:18 a.m., another 31-year-old man was shot to death in a separate Austin neighborhood attack, police said. He was shot in the back in the 5000 block of West Van Buren, police said. The man was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said. Additional information was not available.

Earlier Sunday, one man was killed and another was wounded in a shooting in the Wrightwood neighborhood on the South Side. The men — ages 19 and 20 — were sitting outside a home at 12:04 a.m. in the 2900 block of West 82nd Street when a male approached and began shooting, according to police and the medical examiner’s office. The 19-year-old was shot in the chest and pronounced dead at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn at 12:45 a.m., authorities said. The 20-year-old was shot in the arm and chest and taken to Christ Medical Center in serious condition.

At least 21 more people have been shot in separate attacks across Chicago since 9 p.m. Friday.

UT Professors who ban guns in their classrooms will be punished, university lawyer says

second amendment3

From Sacramento Bee: (Austin, TX) Three professors duking it out in court for the right to ban guns in their classrooms were told Monday they will be punished if they do, according to the latest legal back-and-forth prompted by Texas’ new campus carry law.

“Faculty members are aware that state law provides that guns can be carried on campus, and that the president has not made a rule excluding them from classrooms,” attorneys representing the University of Texas at Austin and Attorney General Ken Paxton wrote in a legal brief filed Monday. “As a result, any individual professor who attempts to establish such prohibition is subject to discipline.”

Professors Carter, Glass and Moore,

Professors Carter, Glass and Moore,

The warning was meant as a clear message to UT professors Mia Carter, Jennifer Glass and Lisa Moore, who sued the university and state in federal court last month to temporarily block the implementation of campus carry. The new law, which went into effect just last week, allows licensed gun owners to carry concealed handguns into most buildings on college campuses, where they were previously allowed just in common areas like quads and sidewalks.

The state’s lawyers, in their Monday filing, asked Judge Lee Yeakel to throw out the professors’ lawsuit. The educators fired back in their own brief, calling again for Yeakel to halt the law for one semester so they can hold a public trial on whether campus carry violates their constitutional rights to free speech and equal protection.

The professors’ lawyers say the law and UT’s own campus carry rules are too vague for his clients to know if and how they might be punished if they tried to keep gun owners out of their classrooms.

“No person of common intelligence – and one would think that the tenured plaintiffs rise at least to that level – can figure out what governs them on this issue under Texas law and UT policies,” the professors’ attorneys wrote.

Dog eyeroll

They go on to say there is nothing in state law or UT policy that explicitly forbids professors to ban guns in classrooms, so, then, the question is “whether there is any policy at all that would bar plaintiffs from doing what they want to do or that would punish them in some way if they did so.”

In the state’s brief, attorneys from Paxton’s agency say the law is clear. It gives campus presidents the ability to designate each school’s limited “gun-free zones,” they say, and if classrooms are not expressly included in campus policy as off-limits to firearms, then guns must be allowed there. “The president is the sole individual authorized to establish gun exclusion zones on UT Austin’s campus. He has not designated classrooms as gun exclusion zones,” they wrote.

Yeakel could decide by week’s end whether to grant the professors’ request to temporarily block the law. While their attorney said it would apply only to them and the students they will teach in the fall, Yeakel acknowledged granting their request would be a slippery slope that would allow other professors at UT, and every other public university in Texas, an excuse to ban guns in their classrooms.

#WaronWomen: Hollyweird actress Rebel Wilson Tweets about her single-life status, blames “bikini-clad” women

You probably don’t know much about Rebel Wilson, an actress that hails from Australia. She’s starred in some comedies such as Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect. She’s also a failed spokesman for Jenny Craig.

Rebel Wilson

She is also a liar. In May 2015 it was revealed her real age was 35, despite claiming she was 29. “The Australian Securities and Investment Commission show that Rebel was born in 1980, the Sydney Morning Herald confirmed. That means she’s six years older than she’s been claiming to be.”

Now she’s trying to get even with the skinny girls that make her life miserable, or something like that.

Via Daily Mail: Rebel Wilson took to Twitter on Sunday to air her frustrations about her single life. The Bridesmaids actress wrote: ‘Why do guys always go for those bikini-clad vapid skanks? And not the smart, successful Australian girls??’

rebel wilson2

But her social media rant ruffled the feathers of some of her 2.6 million followers who were unhappy she pointed to other woman as the issue and called her out on slut-shaming.

The 36-year-old was bombarded with replies and one Twitter user wrote: ‘Why do girls feed the need to slut-shame others? It’s not nice, Rebel.’ Another account user, Nell added: ‘calling other women skanks isn’t cool, rebel. be better than slut-shaming’ and the post was favourited over 138 times.

‘Slut shaming and being body negative to another group of girls isn’t going to change anything. Come on,’ replied another Twitter user.   Meanwhile, another tweet simply read: ‘so much for the sisterhood’.

The Australian actress was last linked to comedian Mickey Gooch Jr. but the pair split in September 2015 and she has been single since.  Rebel and Mickey first went public with their relationship in May after attending several hockey games together but their romance was short lived. Earlier this year Rebel revealed she made the decision to end their relationship so she could concentrate on her booming acting career. 

In February the Pitch Perfect star told The Daily Telegraph ‘I obviously chose career over relationships and I don’t regret that decision one bit.’ The Australian actress continued: ‘A lot of my friends who are married now wish they’d taken the same path — where you really went after your career and your dreams. ‘That’s not to say both are mutually exclusive, because you can have it all if you want to,’ she added.

Her career has gone from strength to strength in recent months and after landing a cameo in Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie is now starring as Adelaide in Guys and Dolls performing at London’s West End.

This actress also believes that the “US Should ‘Follow Australia’s Example’ on Gun Laws.” From a 2015 interview she said:

I don’t like getting political but America you really have to follow Australia’s example re gun laws. I don’t remember a mass shooting in Australia since they overhauled the gun laws. It seems like every week in America there’s a shooting. I just want people to be safe, especially people that are doing one of my favorite things in the WORLD – going out to the movies 2 have fun. If you ask me where has been the one area where I feel that I’ve been most frustrated and most stymied, it is the fact that the United States of America is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient, common-sense gun safety laws – even in the face of repeated mass killings.”

This is Chiraq: 5 killed, 36 wounded in weekend shootings

And, of course, not a word from any gun control advocates about the mayhem that continues in that demorat-controlled town.

No where to be seen in Chicago...

No where to be seen in Chicago…

From MyFoxChicago: Five people were killed and at least 36 more have been wounded in shootings across the city since Friday evening.

The weekend’s latest homicide happened early Sunday during a birthday party attended by more than 100 people in the University Village neighborhood on the Near West Side. About 2:20 a.m., a 43-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman were at the party outside in the 1300 block of West Hastings when someone opened fire, according to Chicago Police.

The man was shot in the head and chest and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The woman suffered a gunshot wound to the left arm and back and was taken to Stroger Hospital, where her condition was stabilized.

More than a dozen police officers guarded the scene early Sunday on Hastings, which was partially blocked off between Throop and Loomis. A large pool of blood could be seen in the street, surrounded by bottles, cups and other remnants of the party that took place before shots rang out.

Dana Fitch, 33, said she had just stepped away from the party and into another friend’s house on the block when she heard more than 20 shots ring out. When she looked outside, people were running and screaming. “Everybody was just mingling and talking. It was fun. I haven’t had a good time like this in so long,” said Fitch, who grew up in the neighborhood, but now lives in Aurora. “It was just too good.”

About 11 p.m. Saturday, a 26-year-old man was killed in a Pilsen neighborhood drive-by shooting. He was walking in the 1900 block of South May when someone began shooting from a passing silver sedan, police said. The man was shot multiple times and taken to Stroger Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The Cook County medical examiner’s office confirmed those fatalities, but did not provide additional information early Sunday.

Earlier Saturday, someone shot a 29-year-old man several times in the head about 4:25 a.m. in the 11600 block of South Torrence, and he was pronounced dead at the scene at 5:05 a.m., authorities said. Authorities have not released the man’s name. Detectives think the shooting may have happened during a home invasion that stemmed from a domestic dispute, police said.

An hour before that, a 32-year-old man was shot to death on the Near North Side. Maurice Selvy was outside with a 33-year-old man in the 800 block of North Cambridge about 3 a.m. when someone opened fire, authorities said. They were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where Selvy died at 3:11 a.m. of gunshot wounds to the head and abdomen, authorities said. He lived a block north of the shooting scene. The older man, shot in the torso, was listed in good condition. Police said he was uncooperative with detectives.

The weekend’s first fatal shooting happened about 12:30 a.m. Saturday in the West Ridge neighborhood on the North Side. Miguel Bahena, 18, was walking in the 2100 block of West Devon Avenue when a gunman in a gray hoodie and light blue pants began shot him in the chest, authorities said. Bahena, of the 5600 block of North Campbell, was pronounced dead at the scene at 12:37 a.m.

The weekend’s latest nonfatal shooting happened about 4:30 a.m. Sunday in the West Side Austin neighborhood. A 22-year-old man told investigators he was walking in the 6000 block of West Chicago when he heard gunfire and realized he’d been shot in the right thigh, police said. He later showed up at Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was listed in good condition.

About an hour earlier, four people were wounded in a shooting in the West Garfield Park neighborhood. The shooting occurred about 3:30 a.m. in the 100 block of South Springfield, police said. A 20-year-old man was shot in the head and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition. A 37-year-old man was shot multiple times in the groin and abdomen and took himself to Stroger Hospital, where he was listed in serious condition. Two other males of unknown ages were taken to Stroger Hospital. One of them was shot in the back. Additional information was not immediately available.

It’s a 100 degrees outside? Time to hit the gun range!

Living in Oklahoma you get use to the hot summer weather. And in our small town the only gun range is outdoors. What to do when you’ve got the itch to go shooting and it’s 100 degrees outside? Suck it up and sweat it out at the range!

So we did just that yesterday!

 I warmed up with the 9mm.

We then moved on to shooting that “weapon of war.”
