Twitter Sued for Hosting Child Pornography (Video)

Twitter has been hosting and profiting from child pornography for more than a decade. The latest lawsuit, brought by the National Association on Sexual Exploitation on behalf of a victim, accuses the platform of “benefiting from a sex trafficking venture in violation of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act”; “violation of duty to report child sexual abuse material”; and “receipt and distribution of child pornography.” Since Twitter is hosted by Amazon Web Services, we can only assume that Amazon has no objection to Twitter’s activities.

The Great Reset is a ‘hiding in plain sight’ agenda: Bernardi

The ‘Great Reset’ is the hiding in plain sight agenda of the World Economic Forum, a globalist institution staffed by “leftist elites” who want to dictate how you live your life, says Sky News host Cory Bernardi. “It (World Economic Forum) was started by a chap named Klaus Schwab and has run what is the equivalent of the Woodstock event for the super-rich and super powerful – Davos – for many years,” Mr Bernardi said.

Black Student Union demands segregated safe spaces ‘on and off campus’

Students at DePaul University are calling on the school to provide special accommodations for Black students. But as one scholar told Campus Reform, such demands, if enacted, would constitute racial discrimination.

Black Student Union representatives at DePaul University in Chicago are demanding new programs and spaces reserved solely for Black students and faculty. 

The BSU’s demands include “healing & safe spaces for Black students on and off-campus,” despite that DePaul University previously opened cultural centers for Black, Latino, Asian American, and LGBT students. The programs would potentially violate Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, which prohibits any college receiving federal funds from enacting programs that discriminate on the basis of race. 

The BSU also called on DePaul to limit administrative positions in its healing and safe spaces to “Black faculty and staff.”

Study: 14.5M Illegal Aliens Living in U.S., Costing Americans $134B a Year

Most significantly, the study details the federal government’s ineffectiveness to properly count the illegal alien population — including the annual total of those who illegally cross U.S. borders and visa overstays.

An annual study released by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) finds that the illegal alien population in the U.S. has grown by at least 200,000 since 2019 and has cost taxpayers an additional $2 billion since last year.

Though the number of illegal aliens in the U.S. has increased, the FAIR study states that growth among the illegal alien population has slowed over the last year because of the Chinese coronavirus crisis and because of former President Donald Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, which stopped the practice of border crossers being released into the interior of the country.

“As many as 60 percent of all new illegal aliens in any given year are those who have overstayed visas,” FAIR researchers write. “Thanks to a timely travel freeze implemented by the Trump administration to stop the spread of the virus, far fewer people entered the United States in recent months, so far fewer people had the opportunity to overstay their visas.”
