The battle for the fate of the American First Amendment has taken a hard left turn over the course of 2018, with Facebook’s frothing fascism acting as the de facto beating and bleeding heart in operation.

The social media giant has not been shy doling out their political influence during these first two years of the Trump administration, with their immense power being wielded solely for the benefit of the democratic party.

Not only has the world’s preeminent social network openly admitted to curating their now-defunct “trending topics” section to purposefully exclude the independent media, but they have also been accused to making victims of men such as Brian Kolfage – a US military veteran and triple amputee who was branded as “untrustworthy” by the platform, thus cutting Kolfage’s reach as a political pundit.   (This was after Facebook accepted over a quarter of a million dollars in advertising revenue from Kolfage as well).

A twist to the tawdry tale of censorship and discrimination has emerged this week, as Facebook is once again in the hot seat over their business model’s amoral practices.

A new lawsuit filing alleges that Facebook purposefully inflated the time spent watching videos on its platform by 150 percent to 900 percent to mislead advertisers and inflate advertising rates.

A lawsuit reported on by the Wall Street Journal alleges that Facebook was aware of issues on how the site measured views of video ads for more than a year before it disclosed the issue in 2016. A group of advertisers brought a lawsuit against the social media firm in 2016 for failing to disclose the error earlier, accusing Facebook of engaging in unfair business practices by publishing inaccurate metrics that overestimated how long users spent watching ads and ultimately misled advertisers.

Later, the group of advertisers added a claim of fraud, and in a filing on Tuesday they have now alleged that Facebook knew of the advertising metric bug as early as January 2015 and determined the nature of the miscalculation within months, but failed to disclose this information to advertisers for over a year. The latest filing came shortly after the advertiser’s review of 80,000 pages of internal Facebook records.

Facebook’s political malfeasance hasn’t come without a price, however:  The social network’s stocks have plummeted in the wake of these concurrent scandals.

Two Men Break Into Texas Man’s Home Before Dawn. It’s A Huge Mistake And You Already Know Why.

God bless Texas.

A homeowner in Nacogdoches, Texas was forced to defend his home from intruders, one of whom was carrying a pistol. As you can probably imagine, with this story having unfolded in Texas, these two punks learned you don’t mess with a man’s home, especially in the Lone Star state. This, ladies and gentlemen, is precisely why we have the Second Amendment and why we need to fight hard against the liberals who want to strip us of our right to bear arms. Gun control laws don’t stop bad guys from getting guns. They just create more victims of violence instead. Here’s more from TheBlaze: After the single shot, both men apparently no longer felt welcome and bolted from the home, KYTX noted. Officers responded to the home invasion report just after 5:30 a.m. — and later responded to a nearby hospital regarding an individual suffering from a gunshot wound to the arm, the station said. Turns out the patient was the alleged intruder the homeowner shot, KTYX reported. Laquintin Lockhart, 30, was then arrested at the hospital on Monday afternoon. He’s been charged with aggravated robbery according to local law enforcement. Police went on to say the second suspect is still on the loose, though the department is continuing to investigate. Guns are nothing more than tools, which means they are incapable of committing acts of right and wrong. What matters is whose hands these tools are in, and unfortunately, gun control laws only serve to harm law-abiding citizens, a simple fact the left just refuses to acknowledge. Without the Second Amendment guaranteeing that the God-given right to own a firearm for the protection of life, liberty, and property, this man would’ve been victimized and possibly deprived of his most precious gift. It’s not fair to leave folks like him…

AOC’s Constituents Get Rude Awakening When Trying To Contact Her Office By Phone

So much for being the “future of the Democratic Party,” huh?

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just keeps adding more and more reasons to the list for why she should never, ever be re-elected to the congressional seat she currently holds, which should be alarming to her, but she seems to be so out of touch with reality she doesn’t even know it’s happening. Her latest goof up has to do with the fact that she’s now become the least accessible representative in New York City, with the NY and D.C. offices now using filtering systems to prevent callers from speaking with an actual, real life human being. This is not how you win elections, AOC. From TheBlaze: The Post called the offices of each of the 13 lawmakers representing New York City, and all the offices of each of those lawmakers had a person answering the phone — except Ocasio-Cortez’s offices. A congressional Democratic aide accused Ocasio-Cortez of not caring about her constituents. “She has no plans to serve the people. That’s why she has no constituent services operation,” the aide told The Post. “If you’re a grandma in Queens who needs help with her Medicare and you call AOC’s ‘district office’ you get a recording that tells you to visit the website instead. What kind of elitist nonsense is that? Shameful, it’s all shameful.” Calls to the Washington, D.C., office are filtered. Only callers with D.C. or New York City area codes have a chance at getting through; other callers are given an automated message that directs them to Ocasio-Cortez’s website. Calls to her district office in Jackson Heights give constituents the option to press 2, and directs other callers to visit the website or send an email. Pressing 2 does not route the call to an aide or receptionist, however, it simply allows the caller to leave a message. So…
