Is Europe Censoring Breitbart?

When users in Austria go to conservative journalism organization Breitbart.com, they’re presented with a 403 error and an ominous national-security URL. Now it appears that people in Germany and Russia are getting the same error.

150 Boko Haram Militants Killed and 36 Captives Rescued

army(Fox) Self-defense fighters say they fought alongside Nigerian soldiers to kill 150 Boko Haram militants and rescue 36 child and women captives of the Islamic uprising in the country’s northeast.

Jubilant civilians who participated in Tuesday night’s assault said they went to the Madagali and Gwoza areas acting on intelligence that the extremists were planning a large attack.

Self-defense fighter Bukar Jimeta said they killed at least 150 militants and recovered guns and explosives used in suicide bombings that have killed hundreds in recent months.

Civilian hunter Young Morris said they rescued 36 kidnapped children and women.

Nigeria’s military has been promising a final onslaught against the militants whose six-year uprising has killed 20,000 people. On Tuesday, they called for insurgents to surrender. Boko Haram denies scores of extremists have surrendered.

Cult of Personality

 

Look in my eyes, what do you see?
The cult of personality
I know your anger, I know your dreams
I’ve been everything you want to be
I’m the cult of personality
Like Mussolini and Kennedy
I’m the cult of personality
The cult of personality
The cult of personality

Neon lights, a Nobel Prize
Then a mirror speaks, the reflection lies
You don’t have to follow me
Only you can set me free
I sell the things you need to be
I’m the smiling face on your T.V.
I’m the cult of personality
I exploit you still you love me

I tell you one and one makes three
I’m the cult of personality
Like Joseph Stalin and Gandhi
I’m the cult of personality
The cult of personality
The cult of personality

Neon lights a Nobel Prize
A leader speaks, that leader dies
You don’t have to follow me
Only you can set you free

You gave me fortune
You gave me fame
You gave me power in your own god’s name
I’m every person you need to be
Oh, I’m the cult of personality
I’m the cult of, I’m the cult of, I’m the cult of, I’m the cult of
I’m the cult of, I’m the cult of, I’m the cult of, I’m the cult of personality

Hilarious Global Warming Predictions For 2015 by ABC

News Busters reports a hilarious attempt by ABC to predict the catastrophes of global warming from 2008:

New York City under water! $15 gallon of milk! Stronger floods, fires, hurricanes!

And when you try to watch for this program on ABC, you get a cat video:

Screen-Shot-2015-06-12-at-9.15.15-AM

I don’t blame them. I wouldn’t want anyone to see the kind of ridiculous claims I made about global warming that didn’t happen.

When will the global warming alarmists’ predictions come true??

Obama Rewrites Obamacare Again and Forces Insurers to Pay for Birth Control

So much for that rule of law and freedom of conscience thing:

WashingtonTimes: reports the Obama administration on Monday ordered all insurers to provide IUDs, the contraceptive patch and other birth control free of out-of-pocket charge to all women, rewriting the rules after reports that some insurance carriers were refusing to cover all types of contraceptives.

Insurers must cover at least one brand of contraception in each of 18 different methods outlined by the Food and Drug Administration, such as oral contraceptive pills, the emergency contraceptive morning-after pill and intrauterine devices.

Insurers can in some cases still impose costs to prod women to use generics rather than brand-name drugs, under the new guidance — but if a doctor or hospital recommends a particular drug or contraceptive device out of medical necessity, the plans must cover them without additional cost.

The contraceptive coverage provisions were some of the most controversial of the Affordable Care Act. They were supposed to give women free access to birth control, but some insurers were refusing to fully cover all types of contraceptives, meaning women who wanted a particular form of birth control had to pay some or all of the costs, the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation and other groups said in recent studies.

“Today, we are clarifying these coverage requirements,” HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell said in releasing the new rules.

5 Steps to Jumpstart Your Internet Marketing Campaign

Are you killing yourself over your Internet marketing effort but seeing little or no return? You may be like millions of companies that have killer content and maybe even a piece or two that went viral but paid advertising isn’t gaining the traction their content deserves. You need to follow up with solid Internet marketing in order to capitalize on your world-class content.

Whether you are an industry leader or just starting off, here are some tips that will help accelerate your brand.

1. Embed Your Videos

If you are posting links to YouTube on your social media, you’re wasting your clicks. Embedding video (especially from YouTube) is easy as pie and when the video is on your site, you have much more flexibility with the viewing experience and the action items to which you want to direct your users (such as Facebook likes). Also, when you post the video yourself in this format, you can give it a catchier name and description. I created an app on ZankRank so that I can keep users in my website while I promote someone else’s great videos.

2. Create Memes

Status messages can be absolutely brilliant, but Facebook clearly favors images over plain text in their post-sharing algorithm. People want to see pictures. Facebook knows this so they display image posts more often than text or link posts on friends’ or followers’ feeds. To take advantage of this principle, you should try to frame your content in a bite-sized meme and make an image out of it to share. Add a link in the caption as an action item that will direct users to your content.

3. Partner with Established Organizations

If you have original content, include links to established organizations that complement your message, then share the link with that organization. They may share it with their millions of followers. I wrote a blog piece about Paul Krugman’s contradictory ideology and linked to the Ludwig von Mises Institute in support of the ideas then shared the post with them. They re-posted the link twice and I received tens of thousands of views from it and dozens of FB likes for the page.

4. Co-opt Good Content

If you receive good press or want to link to a really good article through your social media campaign, you should write a blog piece describing and quoting from the original article. When you promote the article or good press, you’re capturing the reader and exposing them to all of your FB likes and advertisements before you send them eventually to the source. Acton Blog and Juggernaut are great at this technique.

It’s important with this to actually add your own content and not just copy and paste someone else’s content. Also, make sure you’re posting to the original content. As a user, it’s disturbingly annoying to click on a FB link that goes to co-opted site with links to yet another co-opted site. This technique is worthwhile but has its limits.

5. Make People Laugh

Everyday life is stressful and riddled with problems. The last thing we need is some organization pumping out further depressing material in order to market their product. It just doesn’t make for viral material. I have some phenomenal quotes from my books along the lines of:

Law

but nothing spreads ideas faster than a laugh:

Bonus: Jump on the Bandwagon:

It’s important to initiate conversation on social media, but it also pays to sometimes join a conversation already happening. That’s what we did with the #fullCommunism hashtag, which gained some steam when a girl posted a picture of herself with a printout saying, “I want full communism because I value a fair society.” Naturally, people responded to the picture with videos of the mass-murdering communists this person was evidently supporting but through Freedom Memes we posted a response image with her sign auto-corrected:

FULL

The result was a doubling of followers to the Freedom Memes page and %30,000 increase in activity.
