Thought for the day

"The supreme trick of mass insanity is that it persuades you that the only abnormal person is the one who refuses to join in the madness of others, the one who tries vainly to resist. We will never understand totalitarianism if we do not understand that people rarely have the strength to be uncommon." -- Eugene Ionesco

You could soon be having your morning video call on Twitter, if new CEO Elon Musk has his way. At a meeting with staff at Twitter's San Francisco HQ on Monday, Musk presented several features that he wants to introduce to Twitter going forward, according to The Verge. These include end-to-end encryption to direct messages (DMs) – a feature that's already on chat apps WhatsApp and Signal – as well as voice and video calling.

It only took them 769 days.

CBS News said Monday that it confirmed the authenticity of data from Hunter Biden’s former laptop — more than two years after The Post first revealed its contents — as the first son’s lawyer complained he didn’t “consent” to the release.

High-fashion brand Balenciaga is facing backlash for an ad campaign that features photos of child models holding teddy bears dressed in bondage gear; the brand also used an image of a Supreme Court opinion in a child pornography case as a prop promoting a handbag.

Twitter boss Elon Musk has lifted another ban on Project Veritas, a right-leaning investigative journalism organization.

Last year, Twitter restricted the organization after allegedly posting a video showing Facebook Vice President Guy Rosen appearing to admit that the social media giant constructed a platform that was designed to freeze commenting when so-called hate speech or violence was detected by algorithms, but without actually confirming the speech was violent or hateful.

Professor Emeritus Jim Fetzer, Chris Weinert and I discuss current events to sharply discern objective reality fit for news from corporate media bullshit to herd sheeple: here on BitChute and (censored on YouTube).

 

Professor Fetzer’s summary of today’s show:

 

A co-host of ABC’s “The View” has made another controversial statement in the wake of a mass shooting at a Colorado Springs nightclub for gays and lesbians. As the show’s panel members discussed the Saturday night murders, which left five people dead and more than 20 wounded, Sunny Hostin made a head-turning claim about Jesus.

“That’s why I’m so sad. I don’t know that they hide behind religion because I said this on this show once before: Jesus would be the grand martial at the pride parade,” she claimed.
