Wednesday News Roundup: The Nation’s Airports Freed From CNN Tyranny and the U.S. Chamber Betrays America

The DC UniParty continues to push its impeachment farce. – I cover that subject in a separate piece this morning.

American travelers are about to be freed from the grip of #fakenews tyranny. – CNN CEO Jeffrey Zucker notified his organization that its monopoly hold on the nation’s airport monitors will come to an end as of March 31:

If you’re thinking “hey, maybe now we’ll be able to get some real news when we’re going through an airport,” don’t be so optimistic and naive. They’ll probably just replace CNN with Fox News.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce formalizes its betrayal of the American public. – It’s been trending leftwards for awhile now, having thrown in half of its campaign contributions to the Democrats in the last election cycle, but the USCC made its betrayal of the American public formal yesterday, announcing it will cancel future campaign contributions to any Republicans who supported President Trump’s very legitimate challenges to the clearly fraudulent presidential election we just suffered through.

From a story at The Hill:

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the powerful pro-business lobbying group, said Tuesday it will halt political contributions to certain lawmakers following the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol last week.

“There are some members that by their actions will have forfeited the support of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Period, full stop,” Neil Bradley, chief policy officer at the Chamber, said in a press conference.

The Chamber’s political action committee (PAC) is typically a reliable resource for Republicans.

Bradley said he would not name lawmakers whose support will be pulled. He was questioned specifically on if the group would pull support from Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), the first senator to throw his support behind objecting to the electoral vote count.

“We’re right in the middle of this, right now and unfortunately regrettably, it’s not over … we’re in the middle of ongoing votes that will happen in the House and the Senate,” he said.

“All of those things will factor into that and we’re going to have a lot more to say about the members whose actions last week and the actions over the next eight days and beyond will have cost them the Chamber’s support.”

The Chamber’s PAC previously gave $10,000 to Hawley, which Bradley confirmed but said the Chamber has never required someone return a donation.

“We did support him. I have to tell you that watching the events of the last week, we have been terribly concerned and disappointed by what we’ve seen. I will say that while a lot of folks are singling out individual elected officials to focus on, I wouldn’t focus on just the junior senior from Missouri and we are going to have a lot more to say on him and others as we get through this period that we’re in,” he said.

[End]

In taking this action, the USCC joins many of its multi-national corporate members, like AT&T, Comcast, Verizon and Disney, which have essentially become state-owned subsidiaries of the Chinese Communist Party in recent years. It is now apparent that the ChiComs now essentially control the entire apparatus at the nation’s most powerful business lobbying organization.

Make no mistake about this: This assault on Hawley and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz – in direct coordination with the Democrat Party – is an effort to delegitimize two of the men who would be the most likely successors to take up the mantle of Trumpism in the 2024 election cycle. You should expect similar assaults on Republican office-holders like Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton, Florida Gov. Ron Desantis and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem to begin ramping up soon.

The Swamp’s UniParty has already chosen its preferred 2024 GOP – Nikki Haley – and is already working hard to prop her up and destroy her likely opposition.

Today’s Short Term Memory Reminder. – As he prepares to serve as one of Nancy Pelosi’s hand-picked impeachment managers, we should all remember that Eric Swalwell recently was engaged in a long and sordid love affair with a Chinese Communist honey-pot spy. Not only has Pelosi refused to remove him from his seat on the House Intelligence Committee for this reckless behavior, she rewards him with this new plum assignment.

Like those multi-national corporations running the USCC, the Democrat Party is basically a subsidiary of the ChiCom Party.

Today’s Required Reading, from liberal writer Glenn Greenwald. – Glenn Greenwald is pretty much the only liberal voice in America worth paying attention to anymore, and he has an excellent piece this morning chronicling how Big Tech has basically destroyed the Parler social media platform in just the last week.

Here is an excerpt from that piece:

Over the last year, Parler encountered immense success. Millions of people who objected to increasing repression of speech on the largest platforms or who had themselves been banned signed up for the new social media company.

As Silicon Valley censorship radically escalated over the past several months — banning pre-election reporting by The New York Post about the Biden family, denouncing and deleting multiple posts from the U.S. President and then terminating his access altogether, mass-removal of right-wing accounts — so many people migrated to Parler that it was catapulted to the number one spot on the list of most-downloaded apps on the Apple Play Store, the sole and exclusive means which iPhone users have to download apps. “Overall, the app was the 10th most downloaded social media app in 2020 with 8.1 million new installs,” reported TechCrunch.

It looked as if Parler had proven critics of Silicon Valley monopolistic power wrong. Their success showed that it was possible after all to create a new social media platform to compete with Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And they did so by doing exactly what Silicon Valley defenders long insisted should be done: if you don’t like the rules imposed by tech giants, go create your own platform with different rules.

But today, if you want to download, sign up for, or use Parler, you will be unable to do so. That is because three Silicon Valley monopolies — Amazon, Google and Apple — abruptly united to remove Parler from the internet, exactly at the moment when it became the most-downloaded app in the country.

If one were looking for evidence to demonstrate that these tech behemoths are, in fact, monopolies that engage in anti-competitive behavior in violation of antitrust laws, and will obliterate any attempt to compete with them in the marketplace, it would be difficult to imagine anything more compelling than how they just used their unconstrained power to utterly destroy a rising competitor.

[End]

Indeed, what Big Tech monopolies have done to Parler over the last week should frighten even the most rabid Trump-hater among us. It has been a display of raw, unashamed monopolistic brutishness this nation has not really experienced since the days when John D. Rockefeller and Standard Oil used its own monopolistic power to starve out competing refiners and pipeline companies.

If they can do this to Parler, they can easily do this to any of us, and if you believe your hatred of Donald Trump somehow makes you exempt from this sort of abuse, boy are you in for a big surprise down the road.

Go read the rest of Greenwald’s piece – it’s long, but it will be the best 15 minutes of time you invest today.

That is all.

Today’s news moves at a faster pace than ever before. Whatfinger.com is the only real conservative alternative to Drudge. It’s the tool I use to help keep up with all the day’s events, and it should be your tool, too.

And so the march to communism goes on with the chamber of commerce in the lead.They used to be respected but in the last ten years they have become nothing but an arm of the communist party the old dem party is dead they are now all communists every last one of them and ninety percent of the RINO party that is the real reason the hate President Trump so much not to mention he was the greatest president in history.

NJLamer

USCC needs to be Eradicated.. It’s Members hanged.

Cam

The USA is Kaput , clearly False Flags Events are believed as True ….
One day of False Flag Violence and all people supporting Trump will be Destroyed , but 6 months of murder and riots , and nothing happens .. Wake up People , time to kill all Politicians and bureaucrats , judges , teachers , and most of all Globalist Corporate Proxy Owners and officers , that will be a good start .

Was once a member of the Chamber of Commerce – NEVER again

Defund the GOP and let them know you’re doing it.
Inform your GOP Congress critters that if they vote
for impeachment you’re going to help primary them
out of office (you vote them out anyway, but let them think
you still want them in there for now).
Start looking for ways to bleed them dry.

Pretty soon they’ll be whoreing themselves out and having
wear to sponsor patches on their $1500 dollar suits and dresses
and start looking like a stock car in a NASCAR race.

The Uniparty Reprats are all scoundrels thieves and liars. Mr Trump plz start a new party the American Nationalist Party or just America’s Party!!

Brandon Stover

It’s almost like they are enabling the big tech monopolies to do this so they can justify nonsense saying capitalism as a whole is bad and usher in a “new normal”. Nevermind the fact that there are rules in place to prevent stuff like this but they will ignore capitalism’s safeguards and say it is completely bad altogether. 2021 bringing a new spin on SOCIALmedia.

The Chamber has been against the president for his stand on illegal immigration and his pro American worker policies. They are part of the establishment.

WE love president Trump

Okay Buzz, we get it. We all knew before slojo was immaculated.

So, the Chamber of Commerce is going to withhold campaign funds from ‘conservative’ Republicans they don’t like and who fail to support the globalist agenda. Big deal!

The GOP is going to be defunded by seventy plus million Trumpers and now the C of C. That is really great news, the more defunding of the uniparty the better.

***

Note to readers about my new acronym CINO:

IMO, RINO has become obsolete because, after all, what has the Republican Party become and has been since the Bush plague came on the scene in 1989, but a clone of the donkey party? The Republican Party hasn’t represented real conservatism since at least Newt Gingrich over twenty years ago and they drummed him out of the party after two or three very effective terms as speaker; just like how they were willing and are now undeniably co-conspirators, to the diminishing of the Trump agenda and his presidency.   

All the “conservative” sounding Republicans running in Red States like Grahamesty and the Muttster promptly screw us when matters when the get to DC so I have coined the acronym CINO as in Conservative in name only.

And there are CINOs in the donkey party who pretend to be ‘conservative’ and ‘independent’ from MaligNancy or Chucky Schemer when they run in purple and red states and districts – Joe Manchin, the senator from West Virginia, is a classic example of a political animal, a true hack.

PS: When a new MAGA political is formed, its animal symbol must be the American Eagle. It cannot be something like a stubborn jackass/donkey or an animal that produces more schiff and dumps it in its own home than any other land animal.

Gregg

On my PS, Should read “When a new MAGA political party…”

Sorry for the poor proof-reading.

You gotta laugh that a “pro-business” lobby is going all out for socialism. Like the “nuclear option” in the Senate, lefties never seem to look past today to a future with unintended consequences.

Fraizer

This is the REAL Antifa:

A fascist system gives uses businesses as a cut out by letting them retain nominal “ownership” while in fact all the shots are called by the government.

The new Antifa system uses government as a cut out by letting them retain nominal “control” while in fact all of the shots are called by the supranational corporations.

Just wait until they Nationalize there businesses – Like Venezuela

Silas

And they just keep doubling down on stupid.

Morgen Seher

Unnecessary upset on CNN airport replacement. Most here will be in the no-fly list by the end of March. Damned Dem fascists!

Mark Allen

Ive been waging war on CNN in the airports for a few years now.When I travel, I travel with a universal remote control. CNN on? TV off!!!

Peter

Great article! The left does not see that what happened to Parlor is a bad thing, remember it is FEELINGS not FACTS. They have no idea what the consequences are, only that bad Republicans are silenced and they can go about their daily lives oblivious to the danger around the corner. It is the new normal for them. My sis lives in Marin (SF), and they are now used to rolling black outs for days, lock downs and higher taxes. They don’t question ANYTHING…

Silas

They never feel the effects of their actions. We do. That’s why the only consequence they ever understand is when they get voted out of office. Then they all go on to cushy corporate jobs for corporations they railed against while in office, or become lobbyists who are nothing more than bagmen for corporations.

A pox upon them, their house and their spawn.

Stord

What ‘Riot’? Except for a few infiltrators and a couple of stooges, you can’t call a scuffle in a 10×10 area a riot, unless you’re a propagandist. But 7 months of conflagration and destruction – we all know is “Mostly peaceful protest”. Don’t buy the lie. BTW, why did CNN have an exclusive at airports and hospitals anyway? My hospital shut them down when so many people complained of the bias – and allowed patients to have a palette of channels.

This run-away cancel culture is getting out of hand. The left is trying to crush the right, and both sides are backing away from each other middle fingers raised akimbo. All this does is further divide the nation.

I would expect that lawsuits will flourish, and after enough people win cases against these monopolies, behavior would improve. Will courts hear these cases or are they going to turn a blind eye like they did with the election lawsuits? I don’t expect that congress will take any action breaking up these monopolies – they are helping all of the marxists suppress conservatives. No way will they risk losing those weapons.

It really does seem like 2 different countries occupying the same real estate. Something has to give.

Justista

And they say there is never any good news anymore!
