Guest Post: Jon Robberson – Tech Tyrants Collude With Homeland Security “Media Influencers” Are The Target


“It’s very easy to tell the truth when you don’t have anything to hide.” Rochelle Richardson, Diamond and Silk

Consumers of New Media news content should not rest easy.  The platforms that you rely on to counterbalance the perpetual fake news and relentless false narratives are being systematically silenced, bled dry by lawfare and now those of us who work endless hours to parse through the news, brainstorm the programs and frame the content are being scrutinized and added to lists of “influencers.”

“Media Influencers”

April 5, 2018 was a dark day.  Cary O’Reilly, writing for Bloomberg Government, penned an article that jolted the spines of New Media personnel worldwide and instigated a queasy feeling that many of us have yet to shake.  O’Reilly’s article is titled Homeland Security to Compile Database of Journalists, Bloggers.

There are a number of components to this story.  Essentially the DHS is seeking bids from private companies that will monitor 290,000 global news sources and subsequently craft a database of “media influencers” based (in part) on the “sentiment” of the respective news sources.  Currently, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is entertaining seven separate bids from seven private “big data” companies.  Secretary Nielsen does not generate income; she can only spend her ever expanding budget, a budget paid for entirely with your ever expanding tax obligation.

This article will educate and inform each of you with the big picture and then I will utilize my position as the Producer of The Hagmann Report to present definitive examples of precisely how this Hitlerian compilation of “media influencers” is already affecting the content creators who many of you have grown to trust for your news and information.

Please bear with me as I break from my typical writing style and shift to first person.  My strategy is to map out the plan as reported by Bloomberg Government, Forbes and Activist Post (among many others) and then I will shift the focus of this piece to the direct impact on platforms as diverse as Diamond and Silk, Steve Quayle, Lisa Haven News, Vets 4 Child Rescue and The Hagmann Report.

Podcast: The Amateur Society – #Obamagate, Scandalous Spying, And The OIG Report – 05.21.2018

Michael Horowitz

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a conversation about the unparalleled significance of the investigations that are ongoing and the barrage of new information being revealed each day. From claims called conspiracy theory to front page headlines in the legacy media, the lies upon lies are unraveling right in front of our eyes. Certain outlets and individuals have been well ahead of the curve and bold enough to stand up to the criticism because they knew the truth. This is a moment of great historical significance, and we must restore justice and the rule of law. All of the cards are being played behind the scenes, and we must prepare ourselves for the aftermath. Paradigms are about to be shattered. Worldviews are about to change. Can you handle the truth? Are you antifragile?


Podcast: On the Objective – Christianity And Artificial Intelligence – Mark Trump – 05.21.2018

Robotic Artificial intelligence AI deep learning computer program technology

Welcome back On the Objective as your host Steven Menking sits down with debut guest Mark Trump, a cybersecurity expert, to discuss artificial intelligence and the potential impact of new technologies on Christianity worldwide. We see headlines on a regular basis that either glorify or demonize technology. What is the appropriate path for a Christian to take? We must begin by informing ourselves. If we can’t explain in simple language what an algorithm is, what the internet of things refers to, or even how artificial intelligence is constructed then we will be overwhelmed by the apparent complexity of it all and take to whatever default position we prefer. Thanks for joining us On the Objective!

Podcast: SER 139 – John McTernan – All Eyes on Israel Once Again


Once again, all eyes are on Israel and specifically Jerusalem. When President Trump authorized and then followed through on his promise to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem, most of the world’s nations shrieked in feigned horror at the thought of a sovereign nation desiring to have their diplomatic stations located in her capital.

As hard as the world powers try, they are never able to overcome the Jewish nation. Surrounded by sworn enemies on every side, the nation of Israel continues to thrive in a world that increasingly denounces her.

What must Christians do in times such as these? What does the Bible say about the nation of Israel and those who support and oppose her? Does Israel matter today to God?

Stay tuned for my conversation with noted scholar, Middle East expert, and staunch supporter of the nation of Israel, John McTernan, in this episode of SER.

John McTernan is the founder of Defend and Proclaim the Faith ministries. He is the author of numerous books including, the series Only Jesus of NazarethGod’s Final Warning to AmericaWhen Jesus Sets You Free, and his most recent As America Has Done to Israel.

Podcast: Ever Vigilant – Your Decisions Matter – Steven Menking


Join Steven Menking as he sits down with Joe Prim on the Ever Vigilant Podcast to talk about the mission of The Amateur Society, the importance of worldview, and a brief history of Times Square Church! Most view philosophy as unimportant, inaccessible, or boring. I discuss how we are engaged with philosophy every day whether we acknowledge it or not. Our worldview matters because all of our decisions are downstream from our worldviews. Our decisions matter. We cannot avoid responsibility even if many would attempt to. Living an examined life is absolutely paramount, particularly in this generation. Pay attention. Strengthen your worldview. Become antifragile. Everything you do matters to God!

Leaving My Regrets And My Successes – Pastor Carter Conlon – Times Square Church – 05.18.2018


Look to Jesus today. He is the author and the finisher of our faith. God has called us to walk with Him and to follow the willful plan He has for our lives. Fully doing this requires leaving behind both our regrets and our successes. Paul is our example. We still remember these things of our past, but we remain focused on the present and the future, the duty we have in this moment and our blessed hope. Surrender everything to God. We are called to let go of all our glory and sorrow. Bring it to the cross right now. Pray. Seek the discernment of the Holy Spirit. Ask God what He would have you to do. This is His day, not ours. Praise be to the one true God!

Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.

Pressing Toward the Goal

Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you.

Philippians 3:8-15
