Zuckerberg`s Latest Venture into Politics


Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg recently took a trip to the Political Land of Oz.

In a highly partisan Facebook post, he sharply criticized the executive orders that President Donald Trump recently signed, which relate to our nation’s immigration policy.

The social media magnate appeared to ditch logic and accuracy in his post and instead favored the use of tired Democratic talking points to make the liberal case.

Going after the president directly, Zuckerberg posted, “Like many of you, I’m concerned about the impact of the recent executive orders signed by President Trump.”

Late-night Comedy Targets President Donald Trump


Some of Hollywood’s most notorious liberal activists appear to be hell-bent on continuing their quest to spread the hate, most notably against the nation’s new president, Donald J. Trump.

Still reeling from Trump’s victory over rival Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, some left-leaning celebrities are wildly engaging in social media diatribes and/or racing to grab the mike at public protest events.

During the primary and general election season, a number of entertainment industry lefties were dead set on the destruction of the Trump campaign, and there were countless attempts to flood the airwaves with Trump-mocking material.

The New McCarthyism


Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly recently used the term “reverse McCarthyism” to describe how the atmosphere in Hollywood is affecting celebrities who had or were presently considering performing at President-elect Donald Trump’s upcoming inauguration.

“The harsh truth is that there is reverse McCarthyism going on in the entertainment industry,” O’Reilly said, alluding to the McCarthy era of the 20th Century.

“If you are a Trump supporter, you are a bad person, and a number of entertainers believe their careers will be harmed, should they associate with the new Trump administration,” O’Reilly said.

Crime Takes a Social Media Turn


In this age of social media, crime itself has undergone a transformation, and the previously unthinkable seems to be on a rampage to somehow out-worst itself.

Crimes carried out with social media accomplices seem to be ever more despicable and de-humanizing.

In the past, an individual might merely set his or her sights on securing an illicit goal of some sort, and a twisted satisfaction would have been completed. Now, however, some of those who were previously content with being shadow dwellers prefer to seek the spotlight instead, with the ultimate aim of acquiring social media fame and even a warped super star status should a social media incident go viral.

The Rewriting of Obama`s Legacy


In an apparent effort to emulate President-elect Donald Trump’s social media mastery, President Obama began the New Year by giving his Twitter followers a revisionist history lesson.

The “Me Too” outgoing president posted a series of tweets that were supposed to tout his two-term accomplishments.

“As we look ahead to the future, I wanted to take a moment to look back on the remarkable progress that you made possible these past 8 years,” Obama tweeted.

The president shared information from his brag book about his supposed job creation, health care triumphs, and super hero environmental status.
