Jimmy Kimmel Gets Taken to the Woodshed on Twitter, Here’s The Reason Why

This is what happens when you quote CNN.

Almost instantaneously after the shooting at Santa Fe High School left 10 people dead, celebrities and anti-gun activists started calling for strict gun control measures, a strategy that only hurts law abiding citizens and does little to prevent these horrific incidents.

One of the leading voices in the call to destroy the Second Amendment is late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel who jumped on Twitter and started demanding gun control, however, he made a huge mistake by relying on information and statistics from the world’s worst news organization: CNN.

CNN is notorious for never allowing a set of facts to get in the way of its agenda, something that should make the usage of information from the network suspect, and in Kimmel’s case, it’s just plain wrong.

“The US has had 57 times as many school shootings as the other major industrialized nations combined,” Kimmel tweeted, citing a CNN report.

Here are a few of PolitiFacts’ fact-checks on some of the inflated numbers pushed by CNN and gun control groups like Everytown for Gun Safety:

Mostly False: 18 U.S. school shootings so far in 2018 and 18 in rest of the world over past 20 years

14 school shootings since 2010 in Florida? Not really

Have there been 74 school shootings since Sandy Hook? A closer look at a tricky statistic

A number of followers on Twitter made sure to take a few moments of time to point out to Kimmel that his statistics have already been proven wrong:

As you can see, CNN has been padding their numbers for quite some time, hoping that by doing so it will help them push an agenda on the American people with the goal in mind of convincing them to protest against their own constitutional rights.

The ultimate goal with such a strategy is to convince people that things are super bad and the only way to stop the situation is by placing severe limitations on the Second Amendment, and ultimately, over time, getting rid of it.

Kimmel is serving as an ignorant mouthpiece for the strategy, most likely not even aware that’s what’s happening. This is why it’s critical to do your own research and to look on both sides of an issue before making up your mind.

You cannot count on accurate information from celebrities and actors.

Businesses Should Require Vax Proof from Customers, Says NIH Director

This is simply unconscionable.

Published

There have long been fears that this sort of discrimination was on the horizon, as the willingly unvaccinated become second-class citizens right here in the United States. With only about half of the US population fully vaccinated, (and largely by their own accord), herd immunity looks to be some time away yet.  Nearly 20% more of the population will need to wind up with COVID antibodies in order for public health officials to consider the pandemic to be waning, and a maximum pressure campaign is taking shape throughout a number of levels of government. During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Dr. Frances Collins used his position as the Director of the National Institutes of Health to pressure businesses around the nation to enact strict vaccine-proof restrictions. Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Some businesses are going a step further and requiring proof of vaccinations not just for employees, but even for customers in some cases. Audience members for broadway plays and musicals need to be vaccinated. Some bars in San Francisco and D.C. are requiring proof of vaccinations. Do you think as a public health measure it would be good for more businesses to require vaccine credentials in order to have vaccinated customers?” His answer was astonishing. Collins said, “As a public health person who wants to see this pandemic end, yes. I think anything we can do to encourage reluctant folks to get vaccinated because they’ll want to be part of these public events, that’s a good thing. I’m delighted to see employers like Disney and Walmart coming out and asking their staff to be vaccinated. I’m glad to see the president has said all federal employees. I oversee NIH. With 40,000 people need to get vaccinated or if they’re not to get regular testing which is inconvenient. All of…

Unrepentant YouTube Decides to Suspend Mainstream News Channel Over ‘Misinformation’

The barons of the Information Revolution are no less corrupt than those of the Industrial Revolution before them.

There are concerns that the barons of the Information Revolution, much like the barons of the Industrial Revolution, are exploiting their content producers at an unsustainable clip, and creating a very dangerous bottleneck in the world of free speech. Given just how much of the internet’s traffic flows through just a few sites, it is imperative that we keep a keen eye on what platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are doing.  They are the new gatekeepers of nearly the entire breadth of current information, and if they were to choose to keep us in the dark on any particular issue, it would be quite easy for them to do so. That’s why the latest news from YouTube is so terrifying. YouTube said Sunday it had barred Sky News Australia from uploading new content for one week, citing concerns about Covid-19 misinformation. The move comes after a review of posts uploaded by the Rupert Murdoch-owned TV channel, which has a substantial online presence. “We have clear and established Covid-19 medical misinformation policies… to prevent the spread of Covid-19 misinformation that could cause real-world harm,” a YouTube statement said. With 1.86 million YouTube subscribers, the channel — which is owned by a subsidiary of Murdoch’s News Corp — has a conservative following well beyond Australia. The mainstream media and the mainstream social networks haven’t always gotten their COVD info right, either, which makes their declarations regarding “misinformation” all the more laughable. Early on in the pandemic, these platforms pushed back against the possibility that the virus itself may have been a part of some sort of lab leak, even going so far as to censor any such discussion.  Over a year later, and as health experts began to suggest this yes, this was truly a possibility, the premature nature of…
