“ISIS: It’s Always the Last Place You Look!” Dept.  While Facebook’s “algorithms” are working 24/7 to censor conservative comments and pro-life videos, they seem to have developed a bit of a blind spot when it comes to removing pro-ISIS terrorist pages.  According to a report on terrorism on social media by the National Whistleblower Center, “Nearly 200 auto-generated business pages for the Islamic State were recently identified” on Facebook, “and dozens more pages for other terrorist groups including Al Qaeda and Ansar Al Sharia remain on the site.” Maybe someone should tell Facebook that they’re also sexist and violently anti-gay, and then maybe they’d do something about removing them

Incidentally, if Facebook is thinking of claiming that they sneaked in under the radar by hiding behind innocuous names, it should be noted that these pages were auto-generated by Facebook’s own algorithms, and they include such names as “I love Islamic State,” “Afghanistan Terrorist School” and “Islamic State Training Camp.” Facebook responded, “While we cannot catch every one, we remain vigilant in this effort.”  Still, I can’t help wondering if “I love Islamic State” might have been removed a lot faster if it had been named “I love Donald Trump.” 

Speaking of finding ISIS where you’d least expect it, do you remember hearing from the media that an American Airlines mechanic who was arrested earlier this month in Miami for allegedly trying to sabotage the airspeed control system of an airliner was motivated by dissatisfaction with employment contracts and overtime pay?  Well, it’s now been reported that the mechanic, Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani, had downloaded an ISIS video onto his cell phone and distributed it to others.

I’m sure nobody who reported the story ever expected anything like that. It just shows that you can never predict when a news story is going to take a shocking and unexpected turn.

    With regard to these terrorist perpetrator stories, I'd like to see you address the motivations behind the perpetrators actions. I know that many of them shoot their mouths off to all who'll listen to the reasons they perpetrate terrorist attacks. Then, refute those reasons by exposing the unreasonable and demented actions for what they really are: false religion and ideology.

    Universities are producing violence seekers by the thousands who are indoctrinated by Marxist, Islamist and Progressive professors who teach with anonymity for their conspiratorial activities. Bartenders are implicated in serving excessive alcoholic drinks to drivers involved in DUI accidents; why not radical professors propagating violence for a demented ideology.

    Mike, you're in a position to address those who are motivating violent, abusive and destructive behavior for illogical ideologies. Please do so more in your intuitive articles.

    Thank you,

    Thanks Mike for all the information. ISIS is & always will be a threat to mankind. May be if we all pray hard enough, they'll disappear into the caves of hell! I enjoy all your newsletters. BTW, I enjoyed your show last night! I do go on FB now & then because I belong to my retiree group which has been fantastic with information go, bad, or indifferent about the ongoing of news of the co. I retired from. When I see negativity about the President, I just bypass it.

    WHY can't we stop this?  Why are Facebook and Twitter and other social media outlets allowed to receive government monies AND SUPPORT while allowing such dangerous practices and identified bias against conservatives?  What can we do to make it stop?

    Telling the TRUTH is anathema to the lefts ( Google, Facebook, ) agenda. We confuse Islam as ONLY a religion, when in fact it's a Theocracy ( A form of Government administered by Clerics) and as such puzzles me HOW anyone who BELIEVES in and SUPPORTS another form of Govt. can SERVE in our Republic? Remember Ole Ben's remark when asked "What have you given us?" his sage reply was 'A Republic Madam --IF you can keep it?' All insurrections start from within and I fear America is already INFECTED beyond redemption. Don't mistake that comment as ANTI anything! Interpret it as 'IF ' you wish to live in a nation founded on Judeo-Christian Ideology then heed Theodore Roosevelt's admonition to basically LIVE by our Laws and Rules or depart.

    Ever since Obama allowed so many Muslims into America there have been more & more attacks against us. Facebook needs to take those sights off of Facebook or at the least censored to be contained for Homeland Security to restrict the viewing of these sights.

    I agree our Country has become one sided with media of all kinds! My concern is not only that, but why is our government allowing Radical Muslim training camps in our Country? Our great President is concerned about our safety at the borders, when we already have the Muslims here training! Our local residents are aware, surely our government knows!

    I left “Fakebook” forever due to the constant ridicule I received from so many people who can’t understand normal thinking! Sadly I see more evidence of common sense taking a leave of absence from America every day in places that I once thought were solid foundations of logical people who were able to understand how important it is to believe in the American way of life. Everything is going in the wrong direction for so many people who are being led astray by the very people who are teaching them differently than what I was taught about this great country. Maybe—just maybe—Joe McCarthy WAS “RIGHT” about everything and stopped by the very people who had been placed in positions where they could bide their time and nurture others to carry on with the destruction of everything here in America we love. Just saying, everything going on today started with someone who has an agenda against us all. All of us who use common sense and logic and patriotism and love God and County! Political correctness is destroying America and if we don’t wake up soon it will be too late for everyone here! EVERYONE!! Except the top rats who are working hard to win the cheese! God Bless America and please vote with intelligence and support our President. We can’t afford to let them rats take over America again. God Bless America—PLEASE!!

    It is delusional or idiotic to trust Facebook or the Media on any of its Business describing what it calls news most of it is an opinion most of it is inaccurate and most of it is to smear American values, Yes America has quality values although most media outlets will not allow the public to view it, The kid that claim the wolf is coming, is going to hurt a lot of people when a real crisis appears most people do not believe the media today. The media is the kid calling wolf! Beware of the Media it is rabid!

    I think we should all delete Facebook and see where their algorithms take them. I wish there was another social media that was started by a Christian/conservative organization. Do you know any?

    They should keep digging into more people in his position. I'm sure they'd find a lot more people with ties to radical groups.

    Facebook has started something unusual on my newsfeed with Donald Trump’s page. They have started to post ‘most relevant comment’ just under his post. They are always inflammatory, anti Trump and often the name of the poster is in Arabic. Sometimes it is just a negative gif. However when I click on comments these ‘relevant comments’ are not at the top of the list. Nor have I found them when I scroll down the comment list. The comments I see at the top of the comments list are always positive and supportive. I have not clicked on these as I find them to be intentionally positioned with Facebook hoping that give a false narrative to Trumps followers. What do you think? Anyone else experiencing this? Thank you. Enjoyed the Baltic trip very much.

    All this reminds me of after 9/11 my sister called the FBI with concerns of some activity she believed was concerning and should be reported. They asked her if she was under the care of a psychiatrist. Life is stranger than fiction. But if we don’t figure out how to take care of some of these things, we might wake up some morning and find out we’re dead.

    I know people suspended for calling someone a snowflake. Facebook appears to think that is worse than showing how to behead a Christian or crash a plane full of women and children.
    Tells us who Facebook really is

    Mike, ISIS is nothing more than and Islamic terrorist group just as those with in our USA suck as Brotherhood of Islam, CAR or CARE for get then the Mosques with in our country are nothing more than rats nest for ISLAM. We now have them in our halls of Congress with is biggest mistake this country could allow to happen and they are getting into our State and local government and know they can use our laws against us. Thomas Jefferson stated once when he toured the middle east that was and infested filthy stink hole and that he worried about this Islam getting to America. He knew what they would do. Look at Europe and UK other country's that let to come in. If we do not stop them in this country we are in . We need to pass legislation that state Islam is a terrorist cult actually Islam is a nomadic government using Islam to get into country's their law is Sharia that should tell you something, We have the Constitution and there is no place for Islamic Sharia law in our land.. You and I know how Islam came about per the Bible and we both know something is going to have to take place to shut it down. Won't be easy but we have the President that can do it if any one can in the next 4.4 years. What ever happened to the DOE our educational system is worst ever our kids are being taught garbage.
    Well Mike I assume you catch my drift. I just and old Iowa country boy Denny
