The Pentagon unveiled new guidelines on “extremism” on Monday, including rules that clarify what kind of behaviors constitute “extremism.” The rules have been updated to reflect the social media era and now prohibit service members from “liking” or “sharing” social media posts from “extremist” groups.

In addition to existing guidelines like not distributing literature linked to “extremist” groups or words, flags or symbols of those groups, the updates to the instruction now describe what types of social media activity would be considered prohibited.

The updated instruction states, “Engaging in electronic and cyber activities regarding extremist activities, or groups that support extremist activities – including posting, liking, sharing, re-tweeting, or otherwise distributing content – when such action is taken with the intent to promote or otherwise endorse extremist activities. Military personnel are responsible for the content they publish on all personal and public Internet domains, including social media sites, blogs, websites, and applications.”

The instruction also prohibits “knowingly accessing internet web sites or other materials that promote or advocate extremist activities” and “applications.”

The instruction also prohibits “knowingly accessing internet web sites or other materials that promote or advocate extremist activities” and “

displaying paraphernalia, words, or symbols in support of extremist
activities or in support of groups or organizations that support extremist activities” such as flags, clothing, tattoos and bumper stickers.

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a Trump nominee, told administration officials to file responses to applications from faith groupscompanies, and attorneys general from over half the states in the country by 4 p.m. on Dec. 30.

That’s just days before the mandate’s deadline.

“We’re very pleased with Justice Kavanaugh’s quick response and are confident that the court will act quickly to ensure legal predictability before the deadline,” John Bursch, a lawyer for Alliance Defending Freedom, added.

Kavanaugh is dealing with the matter because the appeals court that issued the ruling that prompted the challenges is under his jurisdiction.

DC Bar Restores Convicted FBI Russiagate Forger to ‘Good Standing’ Amid Irregularities and Leniency

The move is the latest in a series of exceptions the bar has made for Kevin Clinesmith, who pleaded guilty in August 2020 to doctoring an email used to justify a surveillance warrant targeting former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

Before quietly making that decision, however, records indicate the bar did not check with his probation officer to see if he had violated the terms of his sentence or if he had completed the community service requirement of volunteering 400 hours.

Clinesmith — who was assigned to some of the FBI’s most sensitive and high-profile investigations — may still be in Durham’s sights regarding others areas of his wide-ranging probe.

Illegal Alien Arrested for Child Abuse, Hitting Woman in Florida


Fernando Herrera, a 21-year-old illegal alien, was arrested by the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, according to 3 WEAR-TV, on charges of child abuse, battery, and cocaine possession.

Herrera was in a physical altercation with his brother when police said he struck a woman in the face. The woman told police that she also saw Herrera lift a child up before dropping them on the ground.

When Escambia County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the scene, Herrera had already fled. Deputies eventually tracked Herrera down, finding cocaine on his person in the process, according to police.

The case comes after 26-year-old Corbin Wagner was killed last month in Jacksonville, Florida, in a drunk driving crash allegedly caused by an illegal alien who was driving three times over the legal limit.

(READ) Parler expands Web 3 (decentralization) efforts

With this move, Parler embraces Web 3 and demonstrates its commitment to being a first mover amongst social media companies in this sphere. Parler CEO George Farmer stated, “no company has been more punitively damaged than Parler by Big Tech, and we, as a business, are now seeking to be an early-stage investor and operator in the Web 3 movement: user, not owner, operated.” 

Parler will therefore be expanding its portfolio of operations to focus on Web 3 and decentralized assets.

Parler has already demonstrated its first steps into this field by assisting comprehensively in the buildout of the NFT platform for Melania Trump.

Facebook’s fake fact-checkers censor medical journal article on alleged safety issues with Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine study

Obviously, corporate and political interests are behind the efforts, using them to keep the public from seeing or hearing information that is contrary to their paid interests.

This helps explain a lot about Facebook’s indefensible censorship of a factual investigation published in the prestigious British Medical Journal.

The article by Paul Thacker exposed alleged poor practices and quality control issues during Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine studies based on whistleblower documentation.

Of course this bombshell information is not what vaccine industry interests and their supporters in government and media wanted to be seen. (Pfizer has always denied any wrongdoing. Pfizer, the FDA and CDC all say all vaccines in use in the U.S. are safe and effective.)

Donald Trump Sues New York AG to Stop ‘Political’ Investigation into His Business


The New York Times first reported Trump’s lawsuit against James was filed in federal court in New York by the former president and his family.

“Her mission is guided solely by political animus and a desire to harass, intimidate, and retaliate against a private citizen who she views as a political opponent,” the suit reads, according to the report.

The Trump team also released a video highlighting a series of political statements that James had previously made about Trump.

Since March 2019, James launched a civil investigation into Trump’s business practices, focusing on whether or not he inflated the value of his assets.

James abandoned her attempt to run for New York governor last week, after struggling to get traction and early fundraising.

World News:

Millions protested vaccine mandates over the weekend, and the media barely mentioned it

In major cities across the Western world, tens of thousands, sometimes even hundreds of thousands in each city, marched against their government’s anti-freedom, anti-human agenda regarding COVID-19, mandatory vaccines, and the dehumanizing apartheid state the entire world seems hellbent on imposing.

These protests are so widespread that it would almost be easier to list the countries which didn’t have demonstrations rather than those that did.

Nonetheless, here are only a select number of cities that saw massive pro-freedom demonstrations, collectively constituting millions of freedom fighters:

The United States, the UK, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand have issued a joint statement expressing “grave concerns” over the Legislative Council elections in Hong Kong, in which only pro-Beijing loyalists were approved to run.

Foreign ministers of the five countries, which make up the “Five Eyes” alliance, said they were concerned over “the erosion of democratic elements” of Hong Kong’s electoral system.

In March 2021, China’s rubber-stamp legislature approved electoral changes for Hong Kong that would effectively bar democratic representatives from occupying key positions.
