President Trump:  Amazon costing Postal Service “billions of dollars”

President Trump reignited his feud with Amazon on Saturday arguing that the online retailer’s “scam” shipping deal with the U.S. Postal Service is costing the agency “billions of dollars.”

“It is reported that the U.S. Post Office will lose $1.50 on average for each package it delivers for Amazon. That amounts to Billions of Dollars,” Trump said over two tweets. “If the P.O. ‘increases its parcel rates, Amazon’s shipping costs would rise by $2.6 Billion.’ This Post Office scam must stop. Amazon must pay real costs (and taxes) now!”

The president’s tweets on Saturday also suggest Amazon is not paying its fair share of sales tax and that the Post’s “lobbying staff” has “ballooned” in efforts to keep favorable tax laws and the Postal Service deal. However, federal regulators have found the contract with Amazon to be profitable.

“I have stated my concerns with Amazon long before the Election,” Trump tweeted Thursday. “Unlike others, they pay little or no taxes to state & local governments, use our Postal System as their Delivery Boy (causing tremendous loss to the U.S.), and are putting many thousands of retailers out of business!”

Amazon lives and dies by shipping, and an increase in the rates it pays could certainly do some damage. Amazon sends packages via the post office, FedEx, UPS and other services.  But while the U.S. Postal Service has lost money for 11 years, package delivery — which has been a bright spot for the service — is not the reason.

Boosted by e-commerce, the Postal Service has experienced double-digit increases in revenue from delivering packages, but that hasn’t been enough to offset pension and health care costs as well as declines in first-class letters and marketing mail.

Together, letters and marketing mail make up more than two-thirds of postal revenue. In arguing that the Postal Service is losing money on delivering packages for Amazon, Trump appears to be citing some Wall Street analysis that argue the Postal Service’s formula for calculating its costs is outdated. A 2017 analysis by Citigroup did conclude that the Postal Service was charging below market rates as a whole on parcels. Still, federal regulators have reviewed the Amazon contract with the Postal Service each year and determined it to be profitable.

Trump blasts California governor for pardons of criminal illegal aliens

Gov. Jerry Brown

President Trump took aim at California Gov. Jerry Brown on Saturday for pardoning five ex-convicts facing deportation, asking if residents of the Golden State “really want” such policies for criminal immigrants.

“Governor Jerry ‘Moonbeam’ Brown pardoned 5 criminal illegal aliens whose crimes include (1) Kidnapping and Robbery (2) Badly beating wife and threatening a crime with intent to terrorize (3) Dealing drugs. Is this really what the great people of California want?”

The president’s remarks follow Brown’s pardon Friday of 56 convicted felons, two of whom were members of families that fled the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia four decades ago. It was the Democrat governor’s third consecutive pardon round in which he intervened on behalf of immigrants who faced deportation because of criminal conditions.

The pardons don’t automatically stop deportation proceedings, but they eliminate the state convictions on which federal authorities based their deportation decisions on. “The pardon does provide enormous benefit to immigrants facing deportation,” said Anoop Prasad, an immigration staff attorney at Asian Law Caucus.

Brown last Friday also commuted the sentences of 14 others convicted of crimes. The governor is a former Jesuit seminarian and traditionally issues pardons close to major Christian holidays. Easter falls on Sunday.

Christian films are huge moneymakers for Hollywood

Authentic Christian films are proving to be huge moneymakers for Hollywood studios, despite still being dismissed by many in the entertainment business as “not part of mainstream Hollywood fare.”

The breakout success of the 2004 blockbuster The Passion of the Christ, whose astounding U.S. box office sales of over $370 million surprised supporters and detractors alike, woke a sleeping Hollywood to the reality of Christian audiences hungry for genuine spiritual fare.

A long lull followed the golden age of religious cinema, when films like The Ten Commandments, Ben Hur, Quo Vadis, King of Kings, and The Robe occupied their own page on the Hollywood menu.

In the last 20 years, however, and an increasingly accelerated rate, Christian film is proving to be an important genre in its own right, and faith-based movies have burgeoned into a “multi-billion-dollar business.”

“You can add faith-based movies to the list of genres that you can count on as box office, as much as you can count on any genre,” said comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian. Nonetheless, “these movies have to come from an authentic place,” Dergarabedian added. “You can’t just suddenly have executives in board rooms saying, ‘Faith-based movies are big right now so let’s do one.’ You have to come from an authentic place,” he said. “Those in the faith-based community will know if it’s not the real deal.”

Some of the big-budget films—like The Passion of the Christ, Noah, and Exodus: Gods and Kings—are strictly biblical in nature, while others—like Hacksaw Ridge, Heaven Is for Real, The Shack, The War Room, and Miracles from Heaven—deal with the power of faith in more modern settings.

Not only are more Christian films being made, they are also connecting with audiences and drawing people out to the cinema again. Last weekend, two of the top ten movies at the domestic box office dealt with explicitly Christian themes. At number three, I Can Only Imagine, starring Dennis Quaid and J. Michael Finley, earned nearly $14 million last weekend, adding to $17.1 million the weekend before, when the film debuted.

Paul, Apostle of Christ ranked number eight, pulling in over $5 million over the weekend. James Faulkner stars as Paul, while Jim Caviezel, who played the part of Jesus in The Passion of the Christ, flanks him in the role of Saint Luke.

Box office returns are not yet available for God’s Not Dead: A Light in Darkness, the third noteworthy Christian film for the spring season, which opened on 1,693 screens on Good Friday.

While many faith-based films do not stand out as runaway chart-busters, all in all they make up an ever more significant portion of the industry, with the faith-based genre reportedly earning nearly $2 billion just since the year 2000. The success of certain Christian films is due, at least in part, to the free advertising provided by believers, who are quick to recommend to all and sundry movies that inspire rather than offend.

“You don’t necessarily need everyone to see the movie if the influencers within churches all over the country are encouraging their flock to go see it,” said Dergarabedian.  “These faith-based movies depart from what the traditional mainstream Hollywood movies need to do,” he said. “You have to have that grass roots marketing for a faith-based movie to be successful.”

Christians celebrate Easter worldwide

Christians across the world are celebrating the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead 2,000 years ago, a claim so outrageously bold that some nonbelievers wonder how anyone could believe it. Yet billions of Christians have based their lives on it for 20 centuries.

Breitbart News has reported a series on three core Christian beliefs. First is the Christmas story of God becoming man around 4 B.C. as Jesus of Nazareth, born in Bethlehem in Israel, and living a perfect life as a mortal man.

Second is the Good Friday story of Jesus as “the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29), a person who claimed to be God, being tortured and then publicly executed by Roman soldiers on the hill of Golgotha outside Jerusalem, Israel’s capital then and now.

Third is Easter, that  Jesus Christ was bodily resurrected on the third day from his execution, emerged from the grave, and spent weeks with his disciples before ascending into heaven. This is perhaps the most extraordinary claim of the Christian faith, and one that puzzles many critics of Christianity as to whether Jesus’s first followers were certifiably insane. People are born all the time, and people can debate whether a particular ordinary-looking child is actually Almighty God in the flesh. People also die all the time, including by public executions, and people can debate about whether some cosmic reconciliation was taking place through the death of a particular person. However, people who are verifiably dead do not come back to life days later. It never happens. What really happened in A.D. 30 has been one of the most debated events in history.

Jesus was beaten, whipped, tortured, nailed to a cross, hung there for hours, then when it was time to kill all three prisoners being crucified that day, his executioners thought he was dead, but thrust a spear into the center of his abdomen just to make sure, causing blood to pour out of his abdomen. The Roman soldiers involved were experienced and professional executioners, and it seems clear that they succeeded.

The body of Jesus was buried on Friday. His disciples, a group of ordinary Jewish men and women, ran and hid rather than fight or proclaim that Jesus’s teachings had a meaning that survived his death. They were heartbroken and shattered, not trying to press the agenda they espoused when their teacher was alive. They immediately went back to their lives as fishermen and tradesmen.

But then on Sunday they became a group of fanatics, declaring the most unbelievable claim that Jesus of Nazareth had physically risen from the dead. Over a dozen of his followers claimed to have spent extended times with him after his resurrection, including placing their hands in his deadly wounds and eating bread and fish with him. Up to 500 of them claimed to have seen him in the following weeks. After those weeks, his closest followers said that he commissioned them to spread his gospel across all the world, then rose before their eyes into heaven.

His followers were ostracized from society, and brutally opposed. Many were imprisoned and publicly executed for publicly and passionately teaching these things. But they kept going, with their central point being that their master had conquered the grave, and that they therefore had nothing to fear. They rejoiced in their sufferings, and thousands were converted under their teaching.

Jesus’s personal attendants, called the apostles, spread throughout Europe, Africa, and Asia carrying this message of the gospel. One of the chief persecutors of this new church, Saul of Tarsus, claimed that Jesus physically appeared to him, struck him temporarily blind, and this Jewish religious teacher changed his name to Paul and became the most prolific writer expounding Jesus’s teaching. Paul’s works comprise roughly half of the New Testament.

All of these apostles except one met violent deaths, yet adhered to their central message – their gospel – until those untimely ends, that the God of the universe had come to earth in the form of a man, died to pay the price for humanity’s sins against the laws of a holy God, then was physically resurrected from the dead and paves the way to eternal life for everyone who would turn to him in faith.

Two thousand years later, more than a billion human beings identify as Christians. Hundreds of millions across the globe are observant and devout Christians, including tens of millions of the faithful in the United States. This belief in the resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday is the cornerstone of their faith and the foundation of how and why they live their lives.

Huntington Beach votes to sue California over “sanctuary state” law

Huntington Beach’s City Council voted on Monday evening to sue California over its SB 54 “sanctuary state” law, becoming the latest Orange County city to join the anti-sanctuary revolt.

The City Council voted 6-1 to sue California over SB 54 (“The California Values Act”), which prevents local authorities from honoring Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers.

According to the Los Angeles Times, City Attorney Michael Gates said Huntington Beach will be the first city to challenge SB 54 in court. He reportedly added that he will file the lawsuit this week and hopes that “other cities in California follow our lead.”

Huntington Beach Mayor Mike Posey and Council Member Erik Peterson put the item on the agenda, with Posey saying that California’s sanctuary laws “all represent a threat to public safety” and the city needed to “seek relief” from the “constitutional overreach.”

Attacker shoots employees at YouTube headquarters

The YouTube shooter has been identified as Nasim Aghdam, a self-described “vegan bodybuilder and animal rights activist.” Authorities report she died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound after shooting a man and two women at YouTube’s headquarters in San Bruno, California.

According to reports, Nasim, a woman in her late 30s, was a YouTuber herself and may have held a grudge against the self-broadcasting platform. According to Heavy, she ranted about the site in many of her online videos.

In one of Nasim’s many online videos, she discussed her perceived censorship by YouTube, saying “This is what they are doing to a vegan activist, and many other people, who try to promote healthy, humane, and smart living. People like me are not good for big businesses, like for animal businesses, for medicine businesses, and for many other businesses. That’s why they are discriminating and censoring us.

“I’m being discriminated and filtered on YouTube and I’m not the only one. So recently, they also attacked my Persian channel, Nasime Sabz, and if you go and check my videos you’ll see that my new videos hardly get views, and my old videos that used to get many views stopped getting views. So this is because I’m being filtered.

“And another thing, they age-restricted my ab workout video, a video that has nothing bad in it, nothing sensual – why they did that? Because it got famous and was getting many views. So they age-restricted that video to keep it from getting views.”

A spokesman for San Francisco General Hospital says it received three patients. Spokesman Brent Andrew says a 36-year-old man is in critical condition, a 32-year-old woman is in serious condition and a 27-year-old woman is in fair condition. He says the hospital is expecting more patients but doesn’t know their conditions.

Actress blames YouTube shooting on NRA

Reacting to the news of the mass-shooting at YouTube’s San Bruno, California, headquarters, far-left actress and activist Alyssa Milano appeared to blame the shooting on the NRA and was roundly ridiculed for it.

While news of the mass-shooting at YouTube’s headquarters unfurled, Milano tweeted that if the NRA or NRATV was “run by brown or black people, it would be labeled a terrorist organization with hate propaganda programming that incites violence.”

She attached a NRATV tweet that called for NRA members to “rise up” against YouTube’s ongoing censorship against gun owners and hobbyists. Milano appeared to want her 3.45 million Twitter followers to believe that this call from the NRA to fight censorship had incited Tuesday’s mass shooting.

President Trump to deploy military at Mexican border

President Donald Trump said he is currently having discussions in his administration to deploy military resources on the southern border. Making his remarks during a lunch meeting at the White House with the presidents of Baltic nations, as Gen. James Mattis sat beside him at the table, Trump said, “I’ve been speaking with Gen. Mattis. We’re going to be doing things militarily,” adding, “Until we can have a wall and proper security, we’re going to be guarding our border with the military.”

The president did not detail specific plans for policing the border but appeared eager to make it happen after Democrats stalled progress on his long-promised border wall. “That’s a big step,” Trump said. “We really haven’t done that before, certainly not very much before.”

The omnibus spending deal included less than $1.6 billion for border structures but an impressive $700 billion for the Pentagon in FY2018. In a 2011 interview with Bill O’Reilly on Fox News, Trump signaled interest in using the U.S. military to stop illegal immigration. “You put soldiers on that line,” he said. “Do you have a choice? They are coming over and they are climbing over a fence and there’s nobody within 10 miles.”

White House:  National Guard troops to deploy at U.S. southern border

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen announced from the White House briefing room on Wednesday that President Donald Trump is deploying National Guard troops to the U.S. southern border immediately in conjunction with the border state governors.

Nielsen told reporters that she was not going to get ahead of governors on the size and duration of the effort, but that “it will be strong. It will be as many [troops] as are needed to fill the gaps today.” She said the action would be similar to Operation Jumpstart under President George W. Bush.

She said they are looking at options to build a wall along the border where they place military installations. Nielsen said that replacing current border wall counts as new wall. She said they are seeing more advertising from smugglers and traffickers as well as pitches to “borrow” children to appear as family units that may give them a greater chance at being allowed to stay in the U.S.

DHS has watched for current and emerging threats and despite steps the Trump administration has thus far taken over the past 15 months, they are still seeing drugs and people smuggled across the border, said Nielsen, who marked it as a threat to children and rule of law. “Border security is national security which is homeland security,” said Nielsen. “The threat is real.”

She pointed out that despite a 40 percent decrease in crossing last year, they have now seen crossing surge to prior levels. Nielsen said that the operation will be overseen by the president and expressed the administration’s hope that Congress will finally act on loopholes in immigration law. She pointed out that smugglers are using claims of “credible fear” to get their human cargo into — and remain in — the United States. She also pointed out that these traffickers are taking advantage of loopholes that make it harder for the U.S. to remove individuals from Central American countries due to immigration law. The secretary said the issue has been exacerbated by the deeply flawed Flores agreement, a courtroom settlement which contributes to catch and release.

The secretary added that these false claims of “credible fear” are also making it harder to help those with valid claims. The National Guard’s activities are expected to include countering criminal activity, aerial support, and some infrastructure construction where able, and aerial support. Nielsen confirmed that there may be some wall built by these troops where military installations are placed.

Nielsen added that counterparts in Mexico have been informed about this action and they understand and respect U.S. national sovereignty. She said the Trump administration does do not expect this operation to affect the U.S. relationship with Mexico and that Congress has the ability and opportunity to provide the country with what it needs for border security.

The secretary emphasized that the U.S. welcomes legal immigrants, that the president is committed to securing the border, and that this is not a partisan issue.

Former National Security Adviser blasts Russia

H.R. McMaster, in his final remarks as National Security Adviser, blasted Russia for its acts of aggression, warned that President Vladimir Putin believes he is winning a new form of warfare, and said Russia was one of several “revisionist and repressive powers” seeking to undermine America’s “values, institutions, and way of life.

Speaking at a dinner for the leaders of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania hosted by the Atlantic Council in Washington, McMaster denounced Russia for waging “hybrid warfare,” which he described as “a pernicious form of aggression that combines political, economic, informational, and cyber assaults against sovereign nations.”

“Revisionist and repressive powers are attempting to undermine our values, our institutions, and our way of life,” he said, describing the conflict as a “fundamental contest between our free and open societies and closed and repressive systems.”

McMaster spoke approvingly of the measures the Trump administration has taken against Russia, including the expulsion of 60 Russian diplomats, sanctions against Russian entities for election meddling, increased funding for the European Defense Initiative, and confronting Moscow about its campaign of cyberwarfare.

McMaster declared:  “Mr. Putin may believe that he is winning in this new form of warfare. He may believe that his aggressive actions in the parks of Salisbury, in cyberspace, in the air, and on the high seas can undermine our confidence, our institutions, and our values. Perhaps he believes that our free nations are weak and will not respond to his provocations. He is wrong.

Fountain Valley and Escondido join anti-sanctuary city movement

Two more California cities joined the growing revolt this week against “sanctuary state” laws enacted by Governor Jerry Brown. The city council of Fountain Valley in Orange County voted on Tuesday to join the U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit against the state that was filed last month in Sacramento — thanks, in part, to intervention by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), who faces a tough re-election fight in November.

The Los Angeles Times reports: “A majority of the Fountain Valley City Council overcame a reluctance to spend public funds on joining the growing Orange County movement against California’s so-called sanctuary immigration laws after U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher offered Tuesday to foot the bill for the city to file a court brief supporting a federal lawsuit targeting the laws.”

And on Wednesday, the city council of Escondido in San Diego County also voted to join the fight by filing a brief in support of the Trump administration’s case by Friday. The San Diego Union-Tribune reports: “Following a contentious, three-hour meeting filled with name-calling and impassioned pleas, the Escondido City Council voted 4-1 Wednesday to file a legal brief in support of the U.S. government’s lawsuit challenging the state’s sanctuary laws.

“More than 70 people spoke during a public meeting in a packed City Council chambers, with most addressing the larger issue of immigration and often echoing the national divide between President Trump’s supporters and detractors.

“Escondido Mayor Sam Abed, himself an immigrant, defended the council’s 4-1 vote against “sanctuary” laws, underscoring the need to work with federal law enforcement authorities to keep the community safe.

The lawsuit targets three statutes: the Immigrant Worker Protection Act (HB 450), the Inspection and Review of Facilities Housing Federal Detainees law (AB 103); and the California Values Act (SB 54).

Facebook uses Wikipedia description for Breitbart News

Facebook is displaying a link to Wikipedia’s smear-job description of Breitbart News next to all Breitbart articles shared on the site. The linked Wikipedia article describes Breitbart as a “far-right site” that publishes “falsehoods, conspiracy theories, and intentionally misleading stories.”

The social network, which has been under pressure from Democrats and the mainstream media since the election of Donald Trump in 2016, has added a button marked “about this article” next to all posts linking to Breitbart News pieces on the site. Currently only viewable for American users, the button brings up a pop-up screen that displays Wikipedia’s misleading description of Breitbart News.

The description repeats several anti-Breitbart News obsessions popular in the corporate and left-wing media: that the site has “misogynistic, xenophobic, and racist content,” and a single throwaway comment from former Executive Chairman Steve Bannon describing the site as a “platform for the alt-right.” Breitbart News has consistently rejected the alt-right label, which has been applied to the site by the mainstream media.

The description also uses words like “has been called” – a practice that Wikipedia’s own editorial rules discourage. The button now appears next to every Breitbart News article linked on the site.

Mainstream outlets like CNN and the New York Times also have Wikipedia links next to their articles, but because the encyclopedia is biased in their favor, they are not smeared in the descriptions.  The addition of biased Wikipedia references next to news articles is in line with Mark Zuckerberg’s plan to fight the alternative media, which he revealed in a recent interview with the far-left website Vox.

Facebook data of up to 87 million people compromised

Facebook has claimed the information of “up to 87 million” users was “improperly shared” with Cambridge Analytica. The company made the announcement in a blog post, Wednesday, where they also discussed changes to the platform which would restrict the use of user data.

“In total, we believe the Facebook information of up to 87 million people — mostly in the US — may have been improperly shared with Cambridge Analytica,” declared Facebook.

Facebook also estimated that the data of 1,175,870 users from the Philippines, 1,096,666 users from Indonesia, and 1,079,031 users from the United Kingdom was shared, while several million users from Mexico, Canada, India, Brazil, Vietnam, and Australia were affected too.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is set to testify before the House Committee on Energy and Commerce next Wednesday to discuss “the company’s use and protection of user data.”

Breitbart News sponsors Big Tech vs. Free Speech Louisiana town hall

Peter Schweizer:  “Google and Facebook have more power than any company”

Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute and best-selling author of Clinton Cash and Secret Empires, argued at Breitbart News’ “Masters of the Universe” town hall on Thursday that Google and Facebook have “more power than any company in human history.”

At Breitbart News’ live town hall event, “Masters of the Universe: Big Tech vs. Free Speech and Privacy” in Louisiana on Thursday night, Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow asked Schweizer, “So one of Google’s mottos is ‘Don’t be evil,’ that is not sarcasm. How are they

Schweizer responded:  “It is really interesting when you look at all of the warnings about technology over the last century, the biggest dystopian novels, 1984, and Brave New World, that was about the government controlling and manipulating technology. I do not think anyone envisioned it would be these two large companies that would use these technologies to

“With Google, it is different. It’s softer, they are still trying to steer, manipulate, and direct us in ways that they want to go,” Schweizer added. Schweizer then said, “Part of the problem is that they do not define what evil

“These two large companies are unaccountable. At least with the government, you can file a Freedom of Information Act [FOIA] request, you can try to get access to that information. [With] Google you have no recourse. So that is the inherent problem. They have enormous powers, powers that I would argue that company has ever had in human history over the flow of information. They are not just Internet companies. They are media companies, they are opinion companies, and they steer the national debate in ways that are unimaginable. Schweizer then posed, “I think the fundamental question is, what are we going to do about Google, and what are going to do about

Dr. Robert Epstein:  “Tech giants can swing elections”

Tech giants like Google and Facebook could swing an election in the United States without the public or government authorities being able to detect it, said psychologist and search engine manipulation expert Dr. Robert Epstein, at Breitbart News’ first  town hall event on big tech on Thursday

“The more information these companies have about us, the more easily they can manipulate us – that is, shift our opinions, our attitudes, our beliefs, our purchases and our votes.” “We estimated that if these companies were all working together and supporting the same candidate, and really pulling out all the stops and using all the methods they have to manipulate, they could shift 10 percent of the voting population of America, with no-one knowing that they had done this, and without leaving a paper trail for authorities to

Epstein also talked about how the tech giants are already interfering in politics. “The fact is, we don’t know what rules they’re applying. There’s lots of evidence now that they are systematically suppressing political views that they don’t like. And not just on the right, by the way, but progressives as well – they just go after anyone they want to and there’s nothing we can do about it, there’s no

Ann Coulter:  “Internet speech controls are actual censorship”

At the Breitbart News event “Masters of the Universe: Big Tech vs. Free Speech and Privacy” in Louisiana on Thursday night, author Ann Coulter said that Internet speech controls have gone far beyond criticizing flawed reports as fake news. “It is actual censorship, and it is terrifying,” she

Coulter praised the Internet as “the greatest thing to happen to the Right,” so naturally the Left is now desperately trying to assert control over it. “I just think we’ll all wake up one day and I’ll try to go to Breitbart, and I won’t be able to get there,” she said. “I’ll try to email you, and it won’t be able to get there. I won’t be able to find the Drudge

“The Internet has been a disaster for the Left,” Coulter pronounced. “The Left already controls all the institutions. They have all the networks. They have all the newspapers. They have the schools. They have the universities. They’re teaching preschoolers ‘white privilege.’ They can’t possibly gain anything from the

Coulter said this is why the Left views the Internet as a problem to be solved, a wild frontier to be tamed. It used to be a matter of playing “games” with conservative sites and users, “but now it’s just direct censorship, as is happening to Breitbart.  Any attack on the Internet, on total free speech on the Internet, is a disaster for conservatives,” Coulter warned. “It’s absolutely shocking what is being done to Breitbart. This is a major

Coulter praised President Donald Trump for adroitly turning the charge of “fake news,” which was originally intended to stifle conservatives, back against the mainstream

Coulter saw the praiseworthy tendency of younger news consumers to get their information from the Internet as a distinct threat to old media. “No one under 50 is getting news from the mainstream media anymore,” she remarked. “Basically all the mainstream media is, is like a notice — ‘There’s been a shooting at YouTube!’ — and then you go to the Internet to find out what happened. Okay, look up YouTube online! It’s driving them crazy. So they start by attacking the crowdsourced news as inaccurate.”

It’s not costing the postal service a red cent. It’s costing taxpaying citizens in increased postal costs to make up for the sweetheart deal Amazon has.
