Feds Creating Database to Track
‘Hate Speech’ on Twitter

Washington Free Beacon, by Elizabeth Harrington

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/25/2014 7:52:40 PM

The federal government is spending nearly $1 million to create an online database that will track “misinformation” and hate speech on Twitter. The National Science Foundation is financing the creation of a web service that will monitor “suspicious memes” and what it considers “false and misleading ideas,” with a major focus on political activity online. The “Truthy” database, created by researchers at Indiana University, is designed to “detect political smears, astroturfing, misinformation, and other social pollution.” The university has received $919,917 so far for the project. “The project stands to benefit both the research community and the public significantly,” the grant states. “Our data

Comments:
“Truthy” claims to be nonpartisan. As stated in the article: "the project’s lead investigator Filippo Menczer proclaims his support for... Obama’s Organizing for Action, Moveon.org, Greenpeace, the Sierra Club, Amnesty International, and True Majority." That´s sure nonpartisan. s/o

And just who gets to decide what is and isn´t hate speech? That´s what I thought.

Anyone who isn´t terrified by this should step back and look at the greater ramifications.
We as a nation have been near the tipping point for a long time. I´m not sure we can make it another two years as a free people. I´m also not sure 2016 will make one bit of difference.

ALL speech is FREE speech and is protected by the Constitution.
What if the Obama Reich decides that "vote Republican" is hate speech?
How about "The Lord´s Prayer"?
NO ONE has the right to determine or deny speech to the individual.
democrats hate that word, individual.

Why do I have this feeling that Ferguson or ISIS/ISIL IIII (whatever) will not be classified as hate speech but any mention of TEA party or individual responsibility etc will be?

I recently had an email from a friend who said at her last physical she was asked questions such as did she ever get depressed, did she own a gun and were she and her husband still intimate. She wrote several people (including me) asking if we had had the same experience. She said immediately after she sent the first email, her email stopped working - she couldn´t send or receive. She had to open a new email account with another company. Is this what this database will track? Dear Lord.

If the feds are really interested in hate speech and misinformation, they can forget about wasting another million on this boondoggle data base and rather listen to demonrats on CSPAN and WH press conferences instead. They´ll get all the hate speech and misinformation they want.

Fine. It just means we are obligated to style the foundation as the National "Science" Foundation. Alternatively, the National So-Called "Science" Foundation. They are doing damage to Science. They are not scientists they are anti-scientists.

645,000 Maryland residents had so-called Obamaphones in 2012 — one hundred times as many people as there were in 2009, and double the number in that state who are supposed to be eligible for the program based on their income. The program, officially called Lifeline, is run by the Federal Communications Commission and imposes hefty fees on every paying phone company to give free phone service to low-income Americans. The profits to telecom companies from the free, government-provided phone service are so great that in Nebraska alone, 51 corporations, many of them who are not even traditional phone companies building infrastructure and

Eric Holder’s left many baleful legacies: being censured by the House of Representatives; withholding subpoenaed documents, proving untruthful about a failed gun-walking caper in Mexico; failing to enforce laws on the books, from immigration to the elements of the Affordable Care Act; illegally billing the government for his own private use of a government Gulfstream jet; snooping on Associated Press reporters; giving de facto exemptions to renegade IRS politicos; and trying to create civilian trials for terrorist killers like KSM, one of the architects of the 9/11 attacks.

The Justice Department is expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports. The announcement of the new policy to crack down on law enforcement profiling was delayed for several months because of White House

Alton Nolen, the suspect in the beheading of a woman in Oklahoma this week, grew up in a rough neighborhood in the small town of Idabel, and was filled with anger and resentment, according to a friend from the neighborhood. Nolen "always had a temper" and a tendency toward violence, says Kenneth Tucker, a former Army reservist, corrections officer, and cop, currently working the oil fields in Oklahoma, who was friends with the suspect growing up. Tucker was "not surprised" to learn of the violent attack. "I knew that he had a temper," says Tucker. "I knew that, like, most

Megyn Kelly tonight took on Muslim speaker Mike Ghouse over radical Islam in the wake of the Oklahoma beheading. “Islam stands for peace,” CAIR said in a statement, stressing that the Oklahoma beheading “is not a representation of what our faith teaches.” “Islam does not stand for peace. The word Islam in Arabic means submission,” Brigitte Gabriel, president of Act! for America, said on “The Kelly File,” charging CAIR with trying to deceive the public. Ghouse, founder of World Muslim Congress, said that Islam does not teach violence, but that some Muslims do. Gabriel refuted that, saying that beheadings are

Many people who have followed the Ferguson protests have noted a very involved element of radical Islam appearing just below the surface. One of the more visible primary agitators is “Umar Lee”, aka Bret Lee. Recently Bret Lee has begun severely ramping up the cries for carnage and blood, as the weeks have progressed he appears to have become increasingly unstable. (Snip) Both Pam Geller and Charles Johnson have also noticed the increasing vitriol: Umar Lee is a notorious and unstable character. In 2013 he left Islam and then he returned.

First lady Michelle Obama said it was "natural" that kids are "grumbling" over new requirements for schools to fill vending machines and lunch lines with healthier food, but that it would not deter her from improving child nutrition. "Change is hard," the first lady said in an interview with Channel One. "And the thing about highly processed, sugary, salty food is that you get addicted to it. I don’t want to just settle because it’s hard." The first lady said she knew children "are grumbling because they have to make changes," and said her daughters roll their eyes when she

Michelle Obama spoke at the U.N. this week about women’s rights, and singled out the United States for how it treats women. Bill O’Reilly tonight found it grossly wrong for the First Lady to suggest that women are not treated fairly in the United States. O’Reilly cited statistics he argued show that women are doing very well, financially and educationally speaking, in the United States, and said the simple truth is “life is not fair.” And, he continued, “no government will be able to impose so-called fairness.” O’Reilly connected Obama’s comments to midterm politics and charged that Democrats are playing

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama enjoyed a romantic date night in a small tapas restaurant in New York on Wednesday. The couple dined at Estela, a tiny tapas-style restaurant on East Houston Street in Manhattan where they ate burrata with salsa verde and bread, two endive salads, and tomatoes and croquettes. And they even ditched the swanky restaurants at the Waldorf Astoria, where they had been staying in the city for a night at the eatery. Local residents saw Obama´s presidential motorcade speed through the Nolita neighborhood on Wednesday night. The president´s senior adviser Valerie Jarrett also joined them for the

The public relations expert hired to help restore public opinion in the city of Ferguson has been fired as it emerged he shot a man dead eight years ago. Devin James was brought in to rebuild the community after a white police officer shot unarmed black teenager Michael Brown. But today his employers were forced to apologize for the appointment as they discovered James was convicted of reckless homicide in Tennessee in 2006. It comes the day after violent protests broke out in the city with people calling for the police chief to resign. James was subcontracted two weeks after the killing on

We don’t know details yet of the murder of a woman at Vaughan Foods — an Oklahoma distribution center — by a co-worker, but we do know that it was a beheading and we do know the alleged suspect — Alton Nolen, 30 — was a new convert to Islam. We also know that other workers at Vaughan say the suspect had tried to convert them to that religion. Some MSM outlets are emphasizing that the suspect was recently fired (it’s workplace violence, doncha know?), but the number of firings that lead to revenge beheadings is minuscule. In fact, I

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

Political pollsters have a tough job. They have to create formulas to determine if the person they are interviewing is likely to vote, and it is within this calculation that their reputations are made. Typically, those who are likely to vote in an off-year election are pretty set. They are the people who always vote in elections — with some motivated by specific issues. In a wave election, the number of those motivated by specific issues escalates, changing the electoral landscape as the candidates who are beneficiaries of this increased participation sweep to victory. The 2014 election is rapidly looking like something new
