Despite the arrest of Caesar Sayoc, the 56-year-old alleged Trump supporter suspected of being behind the “mail bombs” sent to a dozen top Democrats around the nation, President Trump isn’t backing down.

In fact, 45 says he feels his rhetoric has “been toned down, if you want to know the truth.”

Trump then claimed: “I could really tone it up, because the media has been extremely unfair to me & the Republican Party…the media has been unbelievably unfair to Republicans & certainly to me.”

WATCH Trump talk to the press before hopping on a flight for a rally in Raleigh, North Carolina:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions says Caesar Sayoc could potentially be charged with five federal crimes and serve up to 58 years in prison – which was later corrected to 48 years.

A fingerprint on the envelope containing one of the mail bombs sent to prominent Democrats nationwide, as well as DNA on two other packages, allowed officials to close in on a suspect, 56-year-old Cesar Sayoc, who was arrested Friday morning.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a 2:30 p.m. press conference from Washington, D.C., that Sayoc, from Aventura, Florida, faces five federal charges and up to 48 years in prison. He confirmed the five charges are: interstate transportation of an explosive, illegal mailing of explosives, threats against former presidents and certain other persons, threatening interstate communications and assaulting federal officers. Even though Sayoc was detained in Florida, he will be prosecuted in New York City.

FBI Director Christopher Wray weighed-in:

More on Sayoc, per CBS News:

Several law enforcement sources told CBS News that Sayoc was born in 1962. Records show that his full name is Cesar Altieri Sayoc and that he appears to have a criminal history in Broward County, Florida.

A fingerprint was uncovered from a package bomb sent to Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, Wray said. The print was then connected to Sayoc.

Wray also said there was a possible DNA connection relating to one of Sayoc’s past arrests. A law enforcement source had said that DNA evidence on one of the devices played a part in leading investigators to the suspect, CBS News senior investigative producer Pat Milton reported.

Brooklyn Bridge Shut Down by Anti-Vax First Responders’ Protest

Is the liberal left paying attention yet?

Published

on

For many on the left side of the aisle, there appears to be a false yet pervasive stereotype of the anti-vaccine crowd.  They see the un-inoculated as an amalgam of wild, unkempt Americans clutching their guns and gadsden flags, mixed in with a few of the holistic backwoods types who use homemade deodorant as well.

This is because the left can only see the right as inferior to them, and this gross oversimplification of the issue helps them to process the situation at a level of intensity that suits their cognitive capacity.

But they are wrong, and this ugly characterization is one of the most potent reasons for America’s current political divide.

In fact, the anti-vaccine movement is a highly diverse one, embodied by Americans from all walks of life, including a vast number of fist responders and healthcare workers, who are, by definition, some of the folks at the highest risk for coming into contact with COVID-19.

They, along with others, made their voices heard in New York City on Monday.

New York City municipal employees are marching across the Brooklyn Bridge Monday against the COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

The protest, which is set to end in front of City Hall on the Manhattan side of the bridge, is billed as an anti-mandate protest on behalf of nearly 50,000 NYC employees who have yet to be vaccinated with a deadline just days away.

Traffic is shut down on the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan as of 11:49 a.m., according to police.

The scene was captured by a great many social media users.

How the left is going to spin this is still a mystery, but there is no doubt that they’re going to try.

Facebook Leak Demonstrates Social Network’s Brazen Depravity

More trouble has arrived for the social media leviathan.

Published

on

The jig appears to be up over at Facebook, as a number of damaging revelations about the social media giant continue to make headlines.

Most damning, of course, is the fact that Facebook routinely put their profits ahead of user safety, as first noted by a prominent whistleblower during her testimony in front of Congress.

Now, with a massive trove of leaked documents to bolster the case, Facebook appears to be headed toward disaster.

Facebook has long been accused of playing favorites on multiple sides of the political spectrum, and it’s now clear just how much of that uproar extends to the company’s ranks. A Wall Street Journal report based on internal Facebook documents shows the social network’s leaders and staff have reportedly clashed numerous times over its approach to conservative content, particularly from outlets like Breitbart. Rank-and-file employees have accused Facebook of making “special exceptions” from policies for right-wing outlets, while senior-level staff warned of potential pitfalls.

And also:

Workers argued that Facebook kept Breitbart in a second tier of the News Tab, a section meant to focus on reliable news, despite very low trust and quality scores as well as misinformation violations. Facebook was not only making exceptions, one employee said, but “explicitly” endorsing outlets like this by including them as trusted partners. Staff claimed Facebook was “scared of political backlash” if it enforced policies equally, and believed the site let conservative influencers Diamond and Silk lobby fact checkers to avoid punishment for spreading misinformation.

But it gets worse:

Higher-ups countered with justifications for those decisions. They argued that booting a news outlet for trust scores would risk booting more mainstream outlets like CNN, for instance. When staff asked Facebook to intervene over Breitbart‘s alleged attempts to dodge sites’ advertising blocks, a director said Facebook had to resist the urge and “rely on our principles and policies.”

Other messages from within the company appeared to directly attack Mark Zuckerberg and other high level decision makers over their wanton disregard for safety in pursuit of profits.
