Zuckerberg's embarrassingly arrogant testimony proves he's the poster boy for young leftists

It was awkward. Funny. Occasionally tense. Sort of dramatic. Then awkward again.

I’m talking of course about the marathon hot-seat session that Mark Zuckerberg sat through in front of 44 Senators yesterday.

It was almost as entertaining as the movie about Facebook, The Social Network. Except it was twice as long, with worse lighting and way more elderly people. Oh, and no Winklevoss twins. Speaking of those guys, they must’ve been laughing it up and toasting to the fact they have all the dough, with none of the hassle.

There are a lot of discussion points after a four-hour Senate committee hearing. Like how much of it felt like a social media tutorial for senior citizens.

Or that Senator Durbin made probably the first decent point he’s made in his entire Senate career, when he asked Zuckerberg whether he’d like to share the name of the hotel he stayed in last night as a way of demonstrating Facebook’s failure to protect users’ privacy.

Then there was the grilling by Ted Cruz in which he listed examples of conservative content censored by Facebook. Zuckerberg didn’t deny Cruz’s allegation and claimed ignorance about whether Planned Parenthood ads were similarly censored.

But perhaps the most revealing moment of the whole four-hour session came when Republican Senator Dan Sullivan of Alaska began his questioning with a tip of his hat to Zuckerberg, the young man who went from tinkering in his Harvard dorm room to building one of the most valuable companies on the planet. Sullivan was marveling at Facebook as an example of the ultimate American dream. But Zuckerberg refused to agree with Sullivan’s “only in America” sentiment.

An utter lack of gratitude and humility.

Zuckerberg couldn’t bring himself to acknowledge the nation he was born into and the large role it played in making him a billionaire. He also felt the need to toss a bone to communist China. This trend, especially among the younger generation of leftist Americans, to blush at the idea that America might be the greatest nation on earth, is disturbing and, frankly, arrogant. Arrogant because it demonstrates an utter lack of gratitude and humility.

As Zuckerberg squirmed under the spotlight, I wonder if any part of him wanted to slink out of that room, crawl into a time machine, and travel back to 2003 to stop his young, naïve Harvard self from ever creating Facebook.

Life would just be a bit simpler that way.

POLL: What did YOU think about the 2nd GOP presidential debate?

Wednesday was a big night for the Republican presidential candidates during the second GOP debate... OR WAS IT?

Glenn wasn't impressed with the debate. In fact, he went as far as to say it was the worst Presidential debate BY FAR he had ever seen for THIS reason: NO ONE discussed the major issues that Americans are actually facing.

Inflation has doubled Americans' grocery bills. Gas is nearing a historic record of $100/barrel. We have DOUBLED our national deficit. Bidenomics and the globalists' green agenda pose an existential threat to core American industries while we continue to fund the Ukrainian people's pensions and small businesses. It is as if our government has forgotten the American people.

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752
