Will you help LifeSite fight and expose Big Tech censorship? | News

September 21, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Hopefully you saw my email last week announcing the launch of our fall fundraising campaign. We have been experiencing a war-like ramp up of censorship by the Big Tech companies and their mainstream media allies in recent weeks, especially against Christian, conservative, patriotic voices. That’s because we are exposing what they want to remain hidden from the public.  

And, they are determined that Trump and the Republicans MUST LOSE this time – no matter what it takes. This possible outcome will be disastrous, as the Biden-Harris administration is overwhelmingly against life, family, and faith.

I appeal to you today and stress how important it is that we receive your support, especially in these dramatic, revolutionary times.  

The stories and petitions that we publish clearly need to reach the public, without censorship, for many critical reasons. 

Recently, several LifeSite petitions went viral on social media and

These Are the 7 Best Semiconductor Stocks to Buy Today

While biotech and pharmaceutical stocks have been growth champions in 2020, their performance has a limited lifespan. Once a vaccination for the novel coronavirus is found, produced and distributed, the focus on that sector will die down. But while those industries will fade in popularity, there are still plenty of good semiconductor stocks to buy now.

That’s true because technology will continue to see big gains. From AI stocks to 5G stocks, there are plenty of opportunities for investors interested in technology. One of the most long-lived segments in the tech industry is actually at a stage when it’s once again, one of the most exciting. Silicon continues to make big leaps forward, and it ultimately powers all of that promising tech, from AI to gaming and smartphones. All of that’s a large part of why such companies frequently make it into Growth Investor.

With that in mind, here’s

Behind Enemy Lines: InsideTheRedRaiders.com previews Texas Tech

As Texas prepares to open Big 12 play on the road in Lubbock, Horns247 takes you Behind Enemy Lines for an in-depth preview of Texas Tech with InsideTheRedRaiders.com publisher Jarret Johnson.

HORNS247: Based on Texas Tech’s 35-33 win over Houston Baptist, what stood out about the performances of quarterback Alan Bowman and the entire offense?

JOHNSON: I would rate Alan Bowman‘s performance in the opener as okay. Not good. Not terrible. If one were to judge Bowman’s performance on stats alone, you would think he had a great game after completing 38-of-52 passes for 430 yards and two touchdowns. The flip side is he was picked off by Houston Baptist on a poorly thrown ball and missed a pair of wide open receivers on separate plays, which would have gone for long touchdowns and helped the Red Raiders put Houston Baptist away. Bowman’s timing was off with his receivers,

Is UCF really the best team in Florida? The numbers reveal the truth

Is UCF really the best college football team in the state of Florida? Well, they just may be.

There are a few certain things in life: death, taxes and UCF claiming they’re the best team in the state of Florida.

Starting the season off as the No. 14 team in the country, the Knights are once again out on a mission to make good on those boasts. Pounding ACC up-and-comer Georgia Tech is a good way to start off 2020. Following that win, quarterback Dillon Gabriel proclaimed UCF is the best team in the state. After seeing how explosive Josh Heupel‘s offense looked, he may be right.

According to ESPN Stats and Info, if both teams play on a neutral field with equal rest, the Knights would be a two-touchdown favorite over Florida State and a 12.8 point favorite over Miami. Even against Dan Mullen and mighty Florida, the Knights

Liberal Bias and All, Social Media Is Still Conservatives’ Best Electoral Tool

America’s biggest tech companies are in the crosshairs of big government, running a gauntlet of antitrust hearings in which lawmakers criticize their size and success — and the content they allow users to share online. Like all conservatives, I see the bias of Big Tech and want to do something to make it better. But the progressive solutions to the problem being embraced by some conservatives will, like all progressive solutions, give more power to the government and regulate conservatives’ communication with a broad spectrum of American voters.

Antitrust investigations of tech companies are being driven by actors on both sides of our political divide. Conservatives want to punish the companies for their executives’ liberal politics and for the way social-media sites moderate conservative content more strictly than progressive posts. You would think Democrats would be rallying around Big Tech for that reason, but they aren’t. Progressives want

As part of a recent response to an open-records request from USA TODAY Sports for documents concerning allegations against softball coach Adrian Gregory, Texas Tech had said in a statement that it was conducting an internal review “to assess the overall culture and student-athlete well-being within the program.”

 Texas Tech athletics spokesman Robert Giovannetti said Tuesday afternoon that the review had been completed Monday night.

 On Tuesday evening, Gregory said in a statement from the school: “At this time, I have found it best to part ways with Texas Tech University and its softball program. I have truly loved Lubbock and the relationships I have built here. I

Texas Tech softball coach resigns amid reported inquiry

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Texas Tech softball coach Adrian Gregory resigned Tuesday, saying only that it was ”best to part ways” amid a report that the program is the subject of school inquiry into the well-being of its players.

Athletic director Kirby Hocutt announced the move without explanation. Gregory had just completed her sixth season at Texas Tech.

”At this time, I have found it best to part ways with Texas Tech University and its softball program,” Gregory said in a statement provided by the university. ”I have truly loved Lubbock and the relationships I have built here. I wish the current players and staff all the best as they move forward with future seasons.”

According to USA Today, Texas Tech is conducting an internal review ”to assess the overall culture and student-athlete well-being” within the softball program, focusing in part on allegations that Gregory grabbed three players.
