Here’s What The ‘Jayden K. Smith’ Facebook Message REALLY Was That Millions Got Yesterday

Published

on

Many Facebook users around the world are now familiar with the name Jayden K. Smith after a message went out yesterday warning everyone online not to accept a friend request from this mystery person. Perhaps for some, it was already too late, as they now have a new addition to their “friend” list, having not gotten the warning about this account before selecting “accept” to this stranger’s seemingly friendly offer. Now, we know what the real threat of this viral message going around is and what it’s done to millions of people on Facebook.

The message spread like wildfire, filling people’s Facebook feeds or messages from known friends in your Facebook Messenger inbox. It was alarming but seemed to serve as a heads up that if you get a friend request from a “Jayden K. Smith,” to not accept this black-listed Facebook user who is allegedly a hacker. The alert simply stated that this maniacal individual masquerading as a normal person on social media would have access to all of your personal and private information once you take the request bait and allow him onto your profile. However, was this a hack or a hoax? Here’s what you really need to know now 24 hours after it swept the Internet.

The message that you may have gotten along with many others of Facebook looked like this: “Please tell all the contacts in your messenger list not to accept Jayden K. Smith friendship request. He is a hacker and has the system connected to your Facebook account. If one of your contacts accepts it, you will also be hacked, so make sure that all your friends know it. Thanks. ”

While well-meaning users shared this just to be safe and not sorry, what they were really spreading was something much different than they thought. Fox 2 Now reports:

“Mass friend requests are flagged by Facebook as spam. So it is unlikely that anyone using a single account would use this as a method to hack millions of people. It is also against the social network’s terms and conditions so the offending account would be easily dealt with.”

It would be impossible for a single Facebook user to request millions of people’s friendship at once, or within a short time period, without being flagged and prevented from doing so. Additionally, a friend of yours on Facebook is not able to break into your account simply by you accepting their request. For these reasons, “Jayden K. Smith” is not a hacker, it’s a hoax message that managed to dupe droves of Facebook users into falling for it, but that doesn’t mean a Facebook danger is non-existent.

The Independent reports that you shouldn’t just accept all friend requests.  A hacker can’t access your password by simply becoming your friend but they can get a lot of information about you.  Be careful who you accept as a friend because they can potentially see your personal information like address, date of birth or phone number,” according to Fox 2 Now.

“You should ignore the request to share this warning. Messages like this get recycled from time to time. They often contain elements like sensational warnings with devastating consequences and a prompt to share the message with everyone. Past warnings include names like Bobby Roberts, Anwar Jitou, and Tanner Dwyer.”

TimesUnion reports:

“There is no Jayden K. Smith. I mean, maybe there is, but he (I’m going with Jayden being male) is no different than the dozens of other ridiculous friend requests you get from people you don’t know — people typically based in the middle east and/or supposedly divorced or widowed and currently in the U.S. military.” 

“You accept them, they try to get you to buy some island from their dying father, you mess with them a bit and then their account gets shut down by Facebook. It’s really as basic (and harmless) as that.”

“The only way to protect your account — or at least attempt to — from hackers is to have a strong password, not leave your account logged on when you leave a shared computer and to be vigilant. Oh, and use some common sense.” 

If there’s one thing we should take away from this viral message, it’s a bigger lesson. There were many sensationalized notices just like this one that came before it and there will likely be others after since that love of chainmail still seems to exist in some adults who never got it out of their system as teens. Just like the commenting “amen” on a post won’t save a child in Ethiopia from dying of starvation or ensure a cure for cancer, common sense should be used in mass messages like this one before sharing it or believing something catastrophic will happen to you if you don’t.

Anti-American Spurs Just Enraged Every Fan With HUGE Message They Broadcasted Before Their Last Game

Published

on

Prior to the year 2017, being a professional athlete was about your ability to play your chosen game and how much you’d help your team achieve victory. The rise of the social justice warrior on the playing fields (or courts) has put that to an end though. Every player is now considered both on their athletic ability and the political views that they bring with them.

The problem of politics is no longer relegated to the NFL since the NBA and other leagues are getting in on the fun. The NB is taking a much firmer stance, with the NBA Commissioner making it clear that he expects his players to stand for the anthem. Many have still chosen to lock arms in an apparent show of solidarity with their protesting counterparts in the NFL, however so far no kneeling.

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovic has been loudly anti-Trump at every turn, and couldn’t resist the opportunity to make his political feelings known in a pre-game show against the Minnesota Timberwolves. According to The Hill, the coach is trying to make sure that his message gets out, even if they’re banned from kneeling like the NFL players are doing:

“The San Antonio Spurs called for ‘real change’ and equality in a pro-social justice message before their game against the Minnesota Timberwolves Wednesday night.

Both NBA teams stood for the national anthem, then linked arms as a slideshow played across the Jumbotron calling for unity and ‘equal opportunity for education, and economic advancement regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or religion.’

‘There are things happening in our communities that need our attention,’ the message read, according to ESPN. ‘We understand your desire to attend our games as an escape and chosen form of entertainment. In that, we feel there is a significant commonality in all of us that allows our community to be so special. … It is our hope that we can, as a community, inspire and evoke real change. We ask that you join with us in your daily lives in the pursuit of equality. And in that, we honor our country by exercising demands for what this great nation has promised and what our military continues to fight for.’

So essentially, they understand what you want, they hear what you’ve asked for, but they decided that pushing their political agenda was more important, even if it alienates their fans. Apparently, any place that cameras are present is a good enough platform for the social justice warriors/athletes of today.

According to Popovich, the message was “warmly received” by the crowd who attended Wednesday’s game. However, considering his overt disdain for the President and everything that our country was founded on, it’s unlikely that any other response would have been accepted or reported by the biased coach.

Popovich has got so far as to call President Trump a “soulless coward” in a recent interview when asked his opinion on a political issue. It’s unclear why this basketball coach thinks that he’s on par with the President of the United States, but he obviously wants to make his voice heard.

In contrast to the socially aware statements being made by the Spurs, the Dallas Mavericks with Mark Cuban at the helm made a very different impression on guests at their game. Yahoo Sports reported that the video that aired before the Mav’s home game against the Hawks was one that had a clearly patriotic theme.

The video the Mavericks aired before Wednesday’s home opener against the Atlanta Hawks featured the images of many players, past and present, but no direct messages about the issues of police brutality against people of color and racial inequality, which have been at the heart of athlete demonstrations begun last year by Colin Kaepernick in the NFL and continued thereafter by players in other sports leagues. Rather, the ‘tribute video’ featured first-person narrative from the perspective of the American flag, delivered over a backing track in the style of early Arcade Fire.”

Cuban is also outspokenly anti-Trump but he knows that that has nothing to do with the respect that is owed the flag. Cuban, like President Trump, has made billions by working hard in a country that still rewards hard work. No matter what you think about individuals or small groups, the flag still stands for freedom and equality, and thankfully there are those who still support it.

“’I see a city and country where the people respect me for who I am and what I represent,’ the personified flag says in the video. ‘I am this country’s common ground: the most recognizable symbol in the world.’

The ‘ultra-patriotic’ video was, in Cuban’s words, ‘a proactive effort to recognize that [the flag is] an important symbol for this country, but we’re also going to recognize that what it stands for is the right for people to disagree and to stand up for your beliefs.’”

Everyone is allowed to have an opinion, and unless their bosses require differently, they’re even allowed to share those opinions at work. However, if we want to retain our rights and freedoms, we should absolutely take those anti-American sentiments personally. Evil will prevail if we don’t take a stand against it.

Right After NFL Legend Mike Ditka SLAMS Obama As ‘Worst President In History’ He Gets NASTY Surprise

Published

on

Being a conservative in TV isn’t good for your career. In fact, you don’t even have to be a conservative, you just have to be a free thinker that isn’t willing to drink the liberal kool-aid, and the powers that be will find a way to make sure that you’re either forced our or completely discredited.

This has become especially true in the Trump era where those in the media consider it their mission to make sure they poison every American with what comes through their TV’s and radios. The problem has even spread to sportscasters and is getting worse since the rapid growth of the NFL’s National Anthem protest. The one and only acceptable move on the part of many of these networks’ anchors is to do the politically correct thing and support the protesters.

This isn’t a rule that everyone is okay with. In fact, at least one former ESPN panelist just wasn’t having it. Mike Ditka proved that he’s willing to put his money where his mouth is, where his  viewpoints opinion just cost him a very coveted position at ESPN, according to the Patriot Chronicle:

“Just one week after making a disparaging remark against Barack Obama, NFL legend Mike Ditka has been removed from his position as a panelist for ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown.

Appearing on WABC’s The Bernie & Sid Show, Ditka pointed out that Obama was not a leader. In fact, the NFL Superbowl champion pointed out, Obama was worst president that the country had ever had.On the bright side, Ditka did say that Obama would be fun to play golf with, an activity that the president had been able to enjoy repeatedly, even when he heard the news that American soldiers are being killed in Afghanistan. Nothing seemed to interrupt the golf swing of the former community organizer.”

Dikta didn’t get to where he is in life by mincing words, and he isn’t about to start now. Someone asked him his opinion and he gave it. This happened a little over a year ago even before the widespread National Anthem protest picked up so much steam. The fact that ESPN was trying, even before all of this, to silence any voice that made a political statement that they didn’t agree with gives us an idea of how we got into this mess.

It’s no a secret that Ditka is a politically opinionated individual. He has been very open about his frustration with current officials and even considered doing something about it and running for office.

“Mike Ditka almost ran for U.S. Senator in 2004 against, then candidate, Barack Obama, to replace Jack Ryan. Ryan had stepped out of the race after sealed court records from his divorce began to seep out to the media.

Though Ryan’s actual divorce papers had been made public, both he and his former wife Jeri Ryan agreed to keep the custody records private out of respect for their child.

After winning the primary, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert Schnider decided, despite both parents wanting the custody papers to remain sealed, that he would overturn that decision and make the documents available to the public.

Although candidate Obama called for the records to remain out of the race, allegations were thrown that it was Obama-backers who were feeding the information to the press.”

An extremely convenient win for the Obama campaign for sure. It’s easy to see that Dikta is one of the many conservatives that are held to a different standard than other people in their same position. ESPN makes a show of putting sports first, but this, plus all the coverage and commentary that has covered the anthem protest would point to them putting their politics first.

To be clear, putting your politics first isn’t wrong, it’s just a little underhanded to pretend that you only care about sports when you’re also trying to endorse liberals and shut down conservatives.

“Ditka, who considers himself to be a Conservative, said in a 2013 interview that the biggest mistake of his life was not running against Barack Obama in 2004, lamenting that if he had won, Obama would probably not have gotten to the White House.

He’s not a leader. This country needs leadership. It needs direction. It needs somebody that steps up front.”

While most on the outside looking in can see that the United States needs a unifying force, companies like ESPN and the others in the mainstream media seem bound and determined to continue to divide us by whatever means necessary. If that means shutting down the voice of a Super Bowl-winning coach in favor of the younger Antifa and BLM supporters, they’re apparently willing to do that.

ESPN seems to not be satisfied until they go the way of the NFL; tanked ratings, lost money and a slippery slope into irrelevance.

Hrs After NFL Commissioner Makes NASTY Kneeling Decision, Look What TRUMP Just Did To Make Him Pay

Published

on

The President of the United States has many jobs and none of them are easy. In the case of President Trump, his workload doubled when those who supported his opponent decided that they could disown and work against him. But despite all the cries of “not my President,” he still is our President, and no matter how many people kneel during the National Anthem, he will still be the President.

Contrary to what the media would have you believe, the President is working very hard to unify the country, but he’s only looking to do it under the banner of the red white and blue. That’s what we are all supposed to pledge our allegiance to, and it’s what the President is sworn to protect.

To that end, President Trump has been putting pressure on every single person who wants to disrespect that flag by trying to make sure that their employers don’t tolerate it in their place of work. But despite his best efforts, the NFL teams are still going to allow their unpatriotic players to put on a racist and anti-American show before every game.

Because of their lack of patriotism, the President has approved a petition and according to the Daily Wire, he’s asking each of us to sign it if will be standing for the National Anthem:

“On Thursday, President Trump, vitally concerned with the disrespect shown toward the National Anthem that was triggered by former San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and later spread across the NFL, fired a warning shot across the bow, approving a petition addressed to the American people asking who will stand for the National Anthem.

The petition can be found on the GOP website. It reads: ‘The President has asked for a list of supporters who stand for the National Anthem. Add your name below to show your patriotism and support.’ According to the website, the petition is ‘Paid for by the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, a joint fundraising committee authorized by and composed of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. and the Republican National Committee.'”

It’s sad that this even needs to be a petition and it makes one wonder what happened to get us to a place where we’re differentiating ourselves by who will stand and who will sit. It used to be a given that you’d show respect, but now it’s somehow a political statement.

Since the left has made it unacceptable for their minions to have even a  modicum of respect for our country, the President is looking to help those who still know what it means to love their country rally together. There’s something very powerful to be able to know exactly how many people there are who still support the same values that you do. Unfortunately, many that run the NFL aren’t in that group.

“On Tuesday, 13 players, owners of 11 teams, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, vice president of football operations Troy Vincent, NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith, as well as assorted other people, met in a conference room inside NFL headquarters to discuss the controversy regarding the National Anthem protests and to decide how to move forward.

On Wednesday, Trump had resumed his attack on those who would disrespect the National Anthem, tweeting:

In mid-September, Trump had triggered a firestorm when he stated at a rally in Alabama, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b**** off the field right now. Out. He’s fired! He’s fired!’ … You know, some owner is going to do that. He’s going to say, ‘That guy that disrespects our flag, he’s fired.’ And that owner, they don’t know it [but] they’ll be the most popular person in this country.’ Trump added that the NFL protests during the National Anthem had exhibited a ‘total disrespect of our heritage’ and ‘everything that we stand for.’

Trump reiterated a few days later, ‘This has to do with respect for our country, and respect for our flag.'”

There are those who say that the anthem protest isn’t what we think it is, and that it’s just their own way of making a statement. Even if that were the case in the first place, the President made it clear what disrespecting the National Anthem says to the world. If they had even stopped at that point, it would have shown that they still loved the USA. But of course, that only added fuel to their alt left agenda.

Thankfully, the President isn’t one to back down from a fight, and he has just upped the ante with this petition. The country and the world are going to know just how many hard working Americans still love this country.
