Tuesday News Roundup: Ronald Reagan’s ‘Fascism in the Name of Liberalism’ has Arrived

CNN just keeps on getting faker and faker. – I kid you not, CNN’s little Humpty Dumpty mascot, Brian Stelter, did an entire 8-minute segment on his Sunday show in which he and his guest bemoaned the lack of shot-getting selfies posted on the web by personalities on Fox News:

You just could never, never, ever make this stuff up, folks. You just can’t.

Twitter just keeps getting Nazi-er and Nazi-er. – Yesterday, I wrote about the real-estate-buying spree by Democrat domestic terror group Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Khan Cullors. Today, I find myself writing about the fact that the Nazis who police Twitter to eliminate any form of thought that does not comply with the leftist narrative suspended the account of a writer – who happens to be Black – who dared to criticize the self-proclaimed Marxist Ms. Cullors for her lurch into capitalism.

No really. That really happened:

From the story at the DailyMail:

A prominent black sports journalist barred from Twitter for the ‘crime’ of discussing the $1.4 million house bought by a Black Lives Matter co-founder slammed the company for trying to silence legitimate debate.

Jason Whitlock, 53, told DailyMail.com on Monday that Twitter was ‘going too far’ by blocking him from posting to his account, which has nearly 450,000 followers.

The censorship by Twitter comes as social media companies, including Twitter and Facebook, have increasingly ‘de-platformed’ figures who stray too far from opinions they consider acceptable.

‘BLM is one of Big Tech’s sacred cows,’ Whitlock told DailyMail.com ‘I’ve been harping on the fraudulence and the financial grift of BLM for years.’

‘I think Twitter has been looking for an excuse to de-platform me,’ he said.

BLM raised $90 million last year, the AP has reported, but it’s unclear how leaders are paid – if they are paid – because the organization’s finances are opaque, a fact that has sparked criticism, even among local BLM chapters.

Now, Whitlock says, Twitter is trying to silence him for asking questions about BLM’s finances.

He was silenced just as it emerged that BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors, a self-professed ‘trained Marxist’, had purchased the $1.4 million house in LA. The New York Post reported Cullors had also bought two other LA homes in recent years, and paid $415,000 for a 3.2 acre property in Georgia.

When Whitlock tweeted his response to the news of Cullors’s purchase, he included a link to the popular celebrity real estate website The Dirt, which first reported the details of the property.

Cullors, 37, raised eyebrows with her new three bedroom, three bathroom house in Topanga Canyon, Los Angeles – a largely white district.

In her new zip code, 88 per cent of residents are white and 1.8 per cent black, according to the census.

Whitlock explained: ‘Twitter locked my account around 4pm Friday,’ confirming his account was still blocked.

‘They said my account was locked because I revealed personal information about someone.

‘They said I needed to remove the tweet that linked the dirt.com story about Cullors buying a house in Topanga.’

There was no explanation of how linking to the Dirt.com story revealed personal information as neither the story, nor Whitlock’s tweet, listed an address – and the purchase also was discussed widely elsewhere on Twitter and reported throughout the press.

Twitter didn’t respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment.

[End]

Twitter refuses to respond for the simple fact that its explanation for Whitlock’s suspension – that he somehow revealed personal information about Cullors, something those on the radical left do all the time without penalty on Twitter – is completely false. Whitlock was suspended because someone in Ms. Cullors’ camp complained about him. That’s how things work at Twitter. There are no “rules” being enforced: It’s just a big tattle-tale micro-society in which those who toe the ideological narrative are safe.

And now you all know why I decided to get off of that evil, Nazi-style platform two years ago.

Future GOP presidential nominee Ron DeSantis put it all very well in a speech on Monday, after the Soviet-style news-fakers on CBS aired a second hit piece on their 60 Minutes fake news program:

Transcript:

“…And some of our biggest media conglomerates, who claim to be avatars of the first amendment and free exchange of ideas, they’ve really become cheerleaders for censorship. If something doesn’t fit the overriding narrative, then in their view it’s better that it gets left on the cutting room floor. It’s best that you edit it out of existence rather than tell people the truth. So, I think what we’re really witnessing is Orwellian. It’s a big tech/corporate media collusion, and the end result is that the narrative is always ‘right.’ Well, I don’t think that’s what the American people want, certainly not people here in Florida.”

Yes, that’s exactly what is happening here, and its only two possible ultimate outcomes are 1) we all end up kneeling down to the false gods who control the narrative, or 2) we all end up involved in a second U.S. civil war.

Because the false gods who control the narrative are never going to relent. Their goal is to turn our formerly free nation into just another Venezuela-style socialist/fascist state, with themselves in charge.

All of which just goes to show that the Great Ronald Reagan was right as usual when he said this:

“If fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism.” – Ronald Reagan

In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s here.

That is all.

Welcome to the Corporate Socialist States of America, Comrades

“Corporate socialism. That’s where we’re headed.”

My uncle Thad saw this all coming 25 years ago, only I didn’t realize it at the time. He would throw that statement out there every time I visited him at the family ranch in Goliad County, Texas, but when I’d ask him to explain exactly what he meant, he’d just go off on a tangent and never come back to it.

Thad was an interesting guy, a really intelligent guy who chose to spend the last 30 years of his life living as a hermit in the ranch house that sat atop a hill. There, he had a 360 degree view of nothing but plowed fields and South Texas brush country filled with huisatche, mesquite and prickly pear cactus as far as the eye could see, which was basically all the way out to Berclair, 7 miles to the East. Thad seldom left that perch during the last quarter century of his life, which meant that anyone who went to visit him had best be prepared to sit at his little kitchen table for about four hours drinking coffee and enjoy a stewed tomato and Miracle Whip sandwich or two with a chaser of Oreo cookies while he told stories.

There were always two or three places during those conversations at which Thad would impart some nugget of wisdom and insight, but you had to be listening closely to catch it – if your attention span wavered during the other 3 hours and 56 minutes of story telling, you might just miss it. So maybe I made that mistake at some point or another when he actually did explain what he meant by “Corporate socialism” – I’ll never know for sure, since Thad passed away about 15 years ago.

But over the past several years I’ve come to realize exactly what he was foreseeing way back in 1995 or so, as the power of multi-national corporations over the lives of ordinary Americans has steadily advanced over time, exploding exponentially over just the last year.

It all started back when Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger went to China in 1972, establishing diplomatic relations with that sleeping communist giant for the first time. With that act, whether they understood it at the time or not, Nixon and Kissinger set in motion a long chain of events that has evolved today to the point at which China now essentially runs the U.S. government through the influence of giant multi-national corporations.

It is just a reality today that the entire Democrat Party and a large swath of the GOP are nothing more than wholly-owned subsidiaries of the communist Chinese government. This was the essence of what Donald Trump came into office to fight against, and he had initial success, striking new trade deals, invoking targeted tariffs and using the influence and power of the U.S. government to push back against Chinese hegemony not just in the United States, but all over the globe.

But ultimately, the corporate interests in this country proved too powerful for one man fighting almost alone to overcome. A tariff on China is little more than a tax on gigantic corporations like AT&T, Viacom, Apple, Disney, Amazon, Wal-Mart, Google, Facebook, Twitter, General Motors, Tesla, Ford, the NBA, the NFL, Major League Baseball and on and on and on. You name a major corporation ostensibly based in the United States, and I will show you a corporation whose revenue stream today is highly reliant on the Chinese market. These corporations could not abide any president who threatened to upset their multi-trillion dollar sellout of our country, so they threw in with the Democrats and their never-ending coup d’etat efforts to destroy him.

To the trained eye, this corporate influence is especially visible in our media/entertainment sector. All of your television networks and movie companies are slavishly tied to the Chinese market today, which is why they all slant their fake news and film scripts to include approved messaging of the ChiCom government. Indeed, this is why CNN and MSNBC, despite losing hundreds of millions of dollars every year, can continue to exist as subsidiaries of giant corporations Comcast and AT&T. Sure, they lose money in an isolated sense, but by spreading the ChiCom message to ordinary Americans, they make their parent companies billions in profits that far outweigh their inability to pay their own bills.

Television and film producers happily submit their scripts for careful rewriting by communist Chinese censors in order to have access to the Chinese market. “News” organizations like CNN, MSNBC and the major networks actively censor any reports that might reflect negatively on the ChiCom government.

The social media giants are even more outrageous in their conduct, knowing as they do that the U.S. Justice Department has been completely corrupted at this point and will do nothing to police their monopolistic behavior by enforcing the nation’s anti-trust laws. Thus, we saw the spectacle during the last election campaign of Facebook, Twitter and Google all banding together to actively censor the story about Hunter Biden’s laptop, a campaign of outright censorship they continue to this day with zero consequence from anyone in law enforcement.

That act of Soviet-style censorship and history revision was not just an act of partisanship in favor of the Democrats: It was also an act on behalf of China, designed to deny the public accurate information about the Biden family’s illicit dealings with the ChiCom government.

Make no mistake: This is not just limited to the traditional and social media world. Over the past year, multi-national corporations have played a leading role in helping Anthony Fauci and Democrat governors around the country destroy the free-market economy in our country under the rubric of COVID response. Governor Greg Abbott may lift his statewide mask order, but that doesn’t mean you won’t still have to wear your mask to the local Wal-Mart or Target. You can trust these huge corporations to cooperate fully with the Democrats to extend these restrictions on your freedoms for as long as they possibly can, because that’s what the ChiCom government wants to happen to our country. It is incredibly naïve to think otherwise at this point.

These giant corporations beholden to China don’t just lobby congress anymore, they run the place. They actively write the laws and have their lobbyists hand the bills to congressional staffers who are incapable of doing that work anymore, and those staffers then write a one-pager of 5-7 talking points for the members to use to describe what is in the bill. That is exactly how the process works in Washington, DC today, and has for the last 20-25 years or so.

All these hearings held by congressional committees in which corporate leaders are called to testify? They’re nothing more than political Kabuki theater at this point, carried out for public consumption and nothing else. Think about it: When was the last time you saw any action of real consequence come about as a result of one of those hearings?

Hell, Eric Swalwell was revealed to have carried on a years-long affair with a honeypot ChiCom spy in December, and Nancy Pelosi just let him keep his seat on the Homeland Security Committee, with the entire Democrat caucus fiercely defending him against attacks from Republicans. It turns out that having an affair with a Chinese spy is now a badge of honor in the Democrat Party.

And it isn’t limited to Washington. States like Georgia that just experienced a massive degree of fraud in the 2020 election can’t even pass legislation without these giant corporate interests exerting influence to cost them billions of dollars under false pretenses. That’s what happened in the decision by Major League Baseball to cancel the holding of its annual All-Star Game and draft in Atlanta this year. The players, owners and managers didn’t vote to do that: That decision was made by cowardly Commissioner Rob Manfred under tremendous pressure from multi-national corporate interests like Delta Airlines, American Airlines, Coca-Cola, Budweiser and others with huge business interests in China.

Thus, we see this Corporate Socialism now extending its Washington, DC influence into the states. All of it – every bit of it – is designed to protect the priorities of Democrats and RINO Republicans who are in the pockets of the ChiCom government.

So, if you’ve been worried that America was about to become a socialist country as the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden administration runs rampant over your civil rights as Americans, you need worry no longer, because we are already there.

Welcome to the Corporate Socialist States of America, comrades. Sadly, Uncle Thad was right.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: BLM Labels Brady’s SB Win ‘Racist’ and Nevada Dems Empower Big Tech

I’m old enough to remember when the halftime show at the Super Bowl did not feature 300 grown-ass men prancing around with diapers on their faces.

Image result for super bowl halftime men with diapers on face

Let’s move on.

They could have featured this band instead:

May be an image of 4 people, people standing and text that says 'CIRCLEBACK AmN'

Ok, I’m really done now.

He thought it was a movie theater and “Herbie Rides Again” was playing. – Democrat activist Chris D. Jackson sent out this tweet yesterday, praising China Joe Biden for going to church instead of tweeting:

Image

Oh, how sweet, how “presidential,” right?

Well, the problem here is that Democrat activist Chris D. Jackson issued this tweet on November 15 of last year:

Image

Oh. Just as in the Obama administration, everything the Biden administration and its supporters say is basically a lie.

Question: When is the very act of winning a Super Bowl “racist”?  – Answer: When you’re Tom Brady and it’s Black History Month. At least, according to hundreds of BLM twitter nitwits, who took to the social media platform to air their protests of pasty-white Tom Brady securing his 7th Super Bowl victory.

From a story at SummitNews:

Innumerable people took to social media to complain that NFL star Tom Brady winning the Super Bowl during Black History Month was “racist.”

No, this is not the Onion.

Brady led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to victory over the Kansas City Chiefs to claim a personal 7th Super Bowl win, prompting outrage due to the perception that Brady once supported President Trump and the Chiefs’ quarter-back being black.

Many Black Lives Matter supporters scolded Brady for having the temerity to win, suggesting he was “racist” for doing so.

 

 

 

 

 

[End]

This compilation of enraged BLM tweeters goes on and on, and is far from comprehensive.

You just cannot make this stuff up, folks.

Today’s Short-Term Memory Update – The amazing success of Donald Trump’s “Operation Warp Speed” may not impress American leftists, for the simple fact that they are constitutionally incapable of admitting Trump was right about anything. But the undeniable, historic success of that effort certainly does impress left-wingers in the rest of the world.

You don’t have to believe me: Take French President Emmanuel Macron’s word for it:

From a story at JustTheNews.com:

When a French president offers public praise to the United States, it’s bound to turn heads.

Emmanuel Macron, who several times publicly squabbled with former President Donald Trump over the course of Trump’s presidency, openly expressed admiration of the Trump administration’s Herculean efforts to develop, test, manufacture and distribute a coronavirus vaccine on a national and eventually global scale.

“The Americans did this very well,” Macron told media in January. He confessed at that time that he was “very admiring” of the Trump administration’s “extremely innovative model” of vaccine production.

That “innovative model” has led to an explosion in vaccine distribution. Pfizer — the manufacturer of one of two vaccines approved for use in the United States — has already distributed 65 million doses of their vaccine worldwide, and expects to be able to distribute up to two billion by the end of the year. Moderna, whose vaccine was also approved for use in the U.S., hopes to have a billion doses by the end of the year.

Vaccines from both companies have already been administered over 35,000,000 times in the U.S., according to CDC data. By contrast, the European Union — with a 35% larger population — had as of Friday reported roughly 12,750,000 doses administered, according to data compiled by the EU.

Macron himself last month admitted that the European Union was less equipped than Washington to mobilize such a logistical effort. The European Commission, he admitted, had been called upon “to do something that isn’t within its competence,” in contrast to the relative proficiency of the U.S. government.

[End]

Oh. But instead of rewarding President Trump for this incredible success story, you are supposed to believe that American voters went out in record numbers to replace him with a brain-addled sock puppet who has been wrong about every damn thing for the last 50 years.

Sure you did. You betcha.

Hey, what could possibly go wrong? – Nevada Democrats are preparing to sign the death warrant of the American Republic with a bill that will allow Big Tech firms to set up their own “autonomous zones” in locations throughout the state. I kid you not: the freaking Governor himself – in utterly worthless communist Steve Sisolak – admits the bill would allow companies to form separate local governments in the state that would have the same taxing and regulating authorities as county governments.

From a story at Rebel News:

Nevada Democrats are working on legislation that will provide tech companies the ability to form their own autonomous governments to operate within the state.

Described as “Innovation Zones” by Democrat Gov. Steve Sisolak in an announcement last week, the governor said that the purpose of the proposed legislation was to boost the state’s economy, which has been hard hit by the coronavirus pandemic. The state relies heavily on tourism and the hospitality industry.

If passed, the legislation will allow tech companies to form separate local governments in Nevada that carry the same authority as counties, including the ability to impose taxes, form school districts, and even courts in addition to government services like policing.

“According to a draft of the proposed legislation, obtained by the Review-Journal but not yet introduced in the Legislature, Innovation Zones would allow tech companies like Blockchains, LLC to effectively form separate local governments in Nevada, governments that would carry the same authority as a county, including the ability to impose taxes, form school districts and justice courts and provide government services, to name a few duties,” The Las Vegas Review Journal reported.

“Sisolak pitched the concept in his State of the State address as his plan to bring in new companies that are at the forefront of ‘groundbreaking technologies,’ all without the use of tax abatements or other publicly funded incentive packages that had previously helped Nevada bring companies like Tesla to the state.”

Sisolak mentioned Blockchains, LLC by name and stated that the company had committed to developing a “smart city” adjacent to Reno that would run solely on blockchain technology.

According to the Associated Press, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development will oversee applications for the zones, which are set to be limited to companies in specific business sectors including blockchain, autonomous technology, the Internet of Things, robotics, artificial intelligence, wireless, biometrics, and renewable resource technology.

[End]

So, it isn’t enough that Big Tech has been allowed to set itself up as the de facto moderator of speech in our country: Now Democrats want to set these fascists up as literal government entities with authority to levy taxes and restrict other rights of American citizens.

If this bill is passed and upheld by the courts, it is literally the end of the American Republic. This isn’t the camel’s nose under the tent; this is the camel’s rear end defecating in your yard.

A pox on all these Democrats’ houses. Every one of them.

That is all.

Impeachment is not Just About Trump: It’s About Intimidating his Supporters

Many of you are no doubt wondering why it is that congressional Democrats and their shameful RINO supporters are intent upon going through with a Senate trial to finalize their latest scam impeachment of Donald J. Trump. After all, Mr. Trump is now a private citizen, and the impeachment process is clearly intended to be applied only to active holders of federal office by the Constitution.

But, Constitution be damned, Nancy Pelosi made it clear yesterday that she and her fellow evil minions plan to force this process through to the bitter end in an effort to ban Trump from ever holding public office again. That is how truly frightened the UniParty Democans and Republicrats remain of this singular man, without question the most accomplished American president in modern times.

Well, wonder no more, as the corrupt hacks at Slate have a piece out today that fully explains the UniParty’s rationale for hounding Trump until he is safely neutered. That piece, written by despicable hack Dahlia Lithwick, details an interview conducted with Juliette Kayyem, who served as assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security under President Barack Obama, because of course she is an Obama minion. What else would she be?

Here are some excerpts from that piece at Slate:

Dahlia Lithwick: I want to start by asking you about this phrase stochastic terrorism because you’ve been saying it and saying it. And I feel like I wrote it this week, and then one of my dear friends was like, “What the hell does that mean?” Can you explain what it means?”

Juliette Kayyem: It doesn’t roll off the tongue, I know. I think the first time I used it publicly was in 2018. I had been looking at what Trump was doing, and inciting violence was not the right terminology, because it was a particular type of violence. It was a violence that was directed toward political gain. Now, that could be whether it’s against a mayor he doesn’t like, or a governor he doesn’t like, or people he doesn’t like, or media personalities, as he’s often wont to do. And the means that he did it is stochastic terrorism. Stochastic means random.

It’s a way of thinking about violence. And it’s when a leader uses his platform to motivate and incite violence in a way in which the violence is much more likely to occur, but who does it and where it’s done is utterly random. So, after a Trump speech, is it more likely someone might do something? Yes. Or a Trump tweet.

I don’t feel comfortable calling Trump a terrorist just because I think that then we’re going to get into that debate. But it’s important to say that he’s the spiritual and operational leader of a domestic terrorism movement and that’s where we’ve landed. And that’s what I’ve been writing and talking about. And I did it not for name-calling but because now, I think, can we think about the prisms of counterterrorism as a solution?

That is what’s important so that you get to the counterterrorism framework: OK, what can we do, knowing now that this is an organized domestic threat? All of a sudden, the tools become more obvious: do all the things that you would otherwise do with any criminal organization. You prosecute, you investigate. [This includes not just Trump, but all of his supporters.]

You cut off the money. What the private sector is doing is fantastic. You deplatform the leader. So, thank you, Twitter and Facebook, for this short moment in time—we’ll get back to you later. You isolate, you shame, you use every political gesture you can. [Classic Saul Alinskyism.]

Crushed is a little strong, but you just want to weaken him, because it’s now about recruitment. It’s about whether we can contain this, prosecute those who’ve been violent, off-ramp those who may want to off-ramp. There’s something to shame, and to them realizing what’s going on. And we’ve got a lot of people in that camp. Let’s make sure he can’t recruit. And so he needs to be [the] loser.

[End]

Get all of that? The Swamp feels it must continue to hound, shame and persecute Trump because of you, you 75 million Trump voters who the Swamp now will characterize as “domestic terrorists.”

If it still isn’t clear enough for you, watch this clip of Obama CIA director John Brennan, who, along with DNI James Clapper and FBI Directors Robert Mueller and James Comey, weaponized the entirety of the U.S. Intelligence Community against ordinary Americans under Obama:

Got that? China Joe’s Intelligence Community is not moving against Trump, it is moving against 75 million ordinary Americans who the Swamp/Uniparty considers to be a “pro-Trump insurgency”, not against America, but against the privileged interests of the Swamp elite. (By the way, the very fact that Brennan is making 7 figures as a “contributor” for MSNBC instead of sleeping on a cot at Gitmo is also designed to intimidate you.)

Just as the Swamp and its media/Big Tech toadies spent months telegraphing their plans for stealing the presidential election, they are now plainly telegraphing their plans to force you all to submit. Thus, this impeachment/removal of a man who has already left office is not merely about Trump, it is about shaming and intimidating all of his 75 million voters to submit to the Swamp’s will.

They always telegraph their plans, folks. All you have to do is pay attention.

That is all.

America, the Prison State

Now that the impeachment scam has been completed, the narrative-creators will start letting the truth about what really happened in the Capitol riot on January 6 to start dribbling out. Thus it is that today we see the narrative creators at the Department of Justice who rashly promoted a false claim that those who entered the Capitol that day were planning to “capture and assassinate” various lawmakers, including Mike Pence and San Fran Nan Pelosi suddenly walking that claim back.

From a story at Townhall.com:

Justice Department attorneys have walked back the claim that Capitol rioters planned to “capture and assassinate” lawmakers. The move follows acting US attorney Michael Sherwin’s comments earlier in the day that “no direct evidence” establishes the presence of so-called “kill capture teams” during last week’s riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Prosecutors in the case of Jacob Anthony Chansley, the man captured in viral images wearing a horned fur headdress and carrying a spear, have formally requested the court strike a line from a recent filing where prosecutors assert that “strong evidence” exists showing “the intent of the Capitol rioters was to capture and assassinate elected officials in the United States Government,” CNN reported. Prosecutors have described Chansley as a regular drug user who suffers from mental illness.

At a press conference on Friday, acting US Attorney Michael Sherwin said, “We don’t have any direct evidence of kill capture teams.”

[End]

Oh. You don’t say.

The DOJ’s original false claim, of course, was used by the Democrats  and supporting Republicans in congress to dummy up a justification for an actual impeachment vote this week, a vote that was held without any due process or the holding of a single hearing prior to that vote. Now that the deal is one, oh hey, they were just kiddin’.

Despicable.

Hey, no one could have seen this one coming! – Oh, wait, we saw it coming right here at DBDailyUpdate just yesterday, didn’t we?

That’s when I detailed the arrest of one John E. Sullivan, a professional BLM/Antifa rioter/agitator who helped organize and execute the Capitol riot, and who was arrested on Thursday in Provo, Utah. In yesterday’s report, I predicted that Sullivan would almost certainly be released very quickly. Later in the day on Friday, he was released without having to even post bail.

I swear I do not make this stuff up. From a report in the Salt Lake City Tribune:

Judge Daphne Oberg denied a prosecutor’s request to keep Utah activist John Sullivan in jail, but she agreed to release him only under conditions that include electronic monitoring and a mental health evaluation.
Sullivan was in virtual court Friday afternoon, one day after being booked at the Tooele County Jail on a warrant for allegedly participating in the rioting at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Sullivan was charged in federal court in the District of Columbia with civil disorder, being in a restricted area and disorderly conduct.
He previously told The Salt Lake Tribune that he attended the riot to document what was happening, but a government affidavit alleges he did more than just film. The affidavit says Sullivan yelled things such as “We accomplished this sh–. We did this together,” and, “We are all a part of this history. … Let’s burn this s— down.” He also broke a window and claimed to have a knife, according to the affidavit.
Sullivan claimed in a YouTube video that he was just trying to fit in at the riot for his own safety.
[End]

Oh, yeah, sure, uh-huh, you betcha: This professional rioter scumbag was “just trying to fit in.”

Holy crap.

Meanwhile, here is what Washington, DC, the national capital city of the formerly free nation of the United States of America, looks like today:

This is what a police state looks like, folks, and if the Democans and Republicrats in the DC UniParty have their way, it is what all of the country will look like soon. They are using the false narrative created in the wake of the Capitol riot to advance their real agenda right before our very eyes, supported by their agents in the corrupt news media and the Big Tech monopolies.

There are 26,000 National Guard troops in DC right now, advancing the false narrative that congress and the incoming Biden/Harris Harris/Biden Administration must be protected from violent Trump supporters. They have closed all of the bridges coming into the city and established checkpoints on all the main roads and arteries as well. In order to get into the City of Washington DC today, you must be able to present the proper papers to the authorities.

Sound familiar?

Just a Reminder: The Democrats Telegraphed Their Plot to Steal the Election

I noticed that a piece I wrote back in early September is getting a bunch of hits today. Curious to understand why, I went back and read the piece, which was headlined…

The Media is Brainwashing You to Accept a Stolen Election

After reading it, I now get the renewed attention: It’s because the piece predicts pretty much every detail of the Democrat plot to steal the election and the aftermath we have experienced since.

Here is the text of that piece, dated September 2, in its entirety:

Axios took the lead yesterday in the ongoing campaign to brainwash the U.S. public into accepting a stolen election this November. This coordinated campaign between the communist Democrat Party and the corrupt news media has been ongoing for several months now, and it becomes increasingly transparent over time.

On Tuesday, Axios ran a story quoting a representative of the Bloomberg-funded Democrat firm called Hawkfish, laying out the scenario the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda is attempting to set up for the November Elections. The scenario envisions a socially explosive situation created by the Democrats. The first part of it involves President Trump holding a huge lead in both the popular vote and the Electoral College when we all trudge off to bed on Election Night. But that lead won’t hold as Democrat vote counters in Blue and Red states around the country “find” boxes and boxes filled with “mail-in ballots” that magically contain the number of votes Biden needs to overtake Trump’s Election Day lead.

A top Democratic data and analytics firm told “Axios on HBO” it’s highly likely that President Trump will appear to have won — potentially in a landslide — on election night, even if he ultimately loses when all the votes are counted.

Why this matters: Way more Democrats will vote by mail than Republicans, due to fears of the coronavirus, and it will take days if not weeks to tally these. This means Trump, thanks to Republicans doing almost all of their voting in person, could hold big electoral college and popular vote leads on election night.

  • Imagine America, with its polarization and misinformation, if the vote tally swings wildly toward Joe Biden and Trump loses days later as the mail ballots are counted.
  • That is what this group, Hawkfish, which is funded by Michael Bloomberg and also does work for the Democratic National Committee and pro-Biden Super PACs, is warning is a very real, if not foreordained, outcome.

What they’re saying: Hawkfish CEO Josh Mendelsohn calls the scenario a “red mirage.”

  • “We are sounding an alarm and saying that this is a very real possibility, that the data is going to show on election night an incredible victory for Donald Trump,” he said.
  • “When every legitimate vote is tallied and we get to that final day, which will be some day after Election Day, it will in fact show that what happened on election night was exactly that, a mirage,” Mendelsohn said. “It looked like Donald Trump was in the lead and he fundamentally was not when every ballot gets counted.”

[End]

So, here we see Axios, via this Democrat front group, attempting to normalize the literal destruction of the American election process as we have always known it. The destruction of America’s legitimate election process has long been a goal of the Democrat Party, and it obviously believes this is the year it will be able to consolidate the plan, using fear over the China virus as the catalyst.

The key to the Democrat/media plan is the destruction of the expectation of having the votes counted on Election Day, as has always been the tradition in the United States, or at least had been the tradition until 2000, when the Democrat effort to steal the presidency in Florida resulted in two months of uncertainty over the outcome.

It is a fact that no Democrat presidential candidate has conceded an election on Election Day since 1988. Think about that: that is 8 election cycles ago. If that is not an aggressive effort to de-legitimize the democratic process, what is?

Now, there is no legitimate reason why every mail-in ballot should not be in and counted within 3 days of Election Day, yet we see Democrat governors all over the country arbitrarily extending the envisioned time frame to as much as a full month. Why should that be needed? If the ballot is properly postmarked by Election Day, shouldn’t the U.S. postal service be able to deliver it within just 2 days? If not, why not? It’s not like they have anything else to deal with other than junk mail these days.

Obviously, the effort to extend the vote-counting period for as long as possible is so that Democrat officials in places like Broward and Palm Beach Counties in Florida, in Detroit, in Philadelphia, in Columbus, Ohio and other key Democrat-controlled counties and cities in swing states have as much time as possible to keep “finding” additional boxes of ballots until they’re able to get their addled candidate over the finish line.

Try to imagine the level of unrest that will exist in this country as these Democrat efforts to steal the election are taking place. If you want to create conditions for a real, shooting civil war in America – as the Democrats have obviously been working towards this summer – it is hard to imagine a more perfect scenario than such a blatant attempt to steal the presidency.

But make no mistake about it: This is the goal of the Democrat party. They’re not really even trying to hide it anymore.

[End]

So, as you can see, everything we’ve seen take place related to this election was entirely predictable, mainly because the Democrats and their toadies in the corrupt news media were projecting their plans publicly all along.

But now that the steal has been successfully completed, you are not only being brainwashed to meekly accept the outcome; the media, Big Tech platforms and the DC Swamp UniParty are actively going about punishing you if you don’t.

Next time somebody tells you that “it’s a free country,” take a moment to argue the point. Because it isn’t anymore. Like the election, the Democrats and the media stole that from us right out in broad daylight.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: What Did Pelosi and McConnell Know and When Did They Know It?

Let’s start with a little DC Swamp humor found on Twitter yesterday:

Image may contain: 2 people, closeup, text that says 'D 1 5 MANURE WOMANURE'

It’s just perfect, really.

Coverage of the DC Swamp UniParty’s second sham impeachment of President Donald Trump can be found here and here.

The Little Menace to Society pushes the goal posts even further down the field. – If you’re planning any actual vacation trips or attending events at the local theater anytime in 2021, you might want to cool your heels on that action.

The little menace to American society Anthony Fauci is already pushing the next virus:

Well, of course. The “new strain” of the virus supposedly imported from England hasn’t taken hold of the public’s imagination, so now Fauci switches to the tactic of claiming America has somehow developed a completely unique strain of its own.

Just accept it: The Swamp wants to keep you cowering in your homes and wearing masks forever. This madness will not end until it is ended by force. And one of the myriad disastrous consequences of the fraudulent election we’ve just experienced is that the people who want to keep you in that sorry state will soon be in control of the armed forces of the United States.

It’s cleanup time at Twitter, everyone! – A week after his company coordinated in monopolistic fashion with other Big Tech giants to de-platform President Donald Trump and destroy Parler, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was out on the hustings trying to do some half-assed cleanup because Twitter’s stock is tanking.

From a story at DailyWire:

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey acknowledged in a statement on Wednesday evening that his company’s decision to ban President Donald Trump from the platform set a “dangerous” precedent and said that it was ultimately a “failure” by the company to “promote healthy conversation.”

Dorsey’s remarks come after the company has taken a hit in its value since banning the president last week, following a riot that broke out at the U.S. Capitol.

“I do not celebrate or feel pride in our having to ban @realDonaldTrump from Twitter, or how we got here. After a clear warning we’d take this action, we made a decision with the best information we had based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter,” Dorsey wrote. “Was this correct? I believe this was the right decision for Twitter. We faced an extraordinary and untenable circumstance, forcing us to focus all of our actions on public safety. Offline harm as a result of online speech is demonstrably real, and what drives our policy and enforcement above all.”

“That said, having to ban an account has real and significant ramifications. While there are clear and obvious exceptions, I feel a ban is a failure of ours ultimately to promote healthy conversation. And a time for us to reflect on our operations and the environment around us,” he continued. “Having to take these actions fragment the public conversation. They divide us. They limit the potential for clarification, redemption, and learning. And sets a precedent I feel is dangerous: the power an individual or corporation has over a part of the global public conversation.”

Dorsey claimed that the company did not coordinate with other tech companies with its decision to ban the president and that other companies either made their own choices or “were emboldened by the actions of others.”

[End]

All of that is, of course, an outright lie, especially the part about not coordinating with the other Big Tech firms. This is just the CEO of a major corporation reading the talking points handed to him by his enormous staff of talking points monkeys in an effort to prevent the company from continuing to bleed billions of dollars in market value every day.

Sadly, he’ll probably succeed in that effort.

I’d rather have a prostate exam than watch this:

Futile Gesture of the Week Award goes to…

Talk about a waste of time and energy – that effort has about as much chance of succeeding as this year’s Houston Rockets.

Today’s Short-Term Memory Reminder – Just a reminder that, on January 5, the day before the riot took place at the U.S. Capitol when the small contingent of Capitol Police guarding the building were overwhelmed by a crowd of thousands, Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser did this:

Oh.

So, as you continue to hear and see the corrupt news media claim that President Trump delayed calling out the National Guard to help secure the Capitol, know that the communist Democrat Mayor of the City had specifically and publicly discouraged making any such move just 24 hours earlier.

Everyone in the nation’s capitol knew that upwards of a million people were going to descend on the city on January 6 as congress debated whether or not to accept the clearly fraudulent electoral vote, and that professional agitators would certainly be in their midst. The FBI and Department of Justice admitted on Monday that they had been monitoring social media platforms and were aware in advance of plans by some agitators on both the left and the right to mount an effort to storm the Capitol. As is the habit of the raging dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence that is the FBI, it chose to do nothing more than send out the most rudimentary, standard warnings to the Capitol Police and other law enforcement officials.

There was no reason whatsoever for the Capitol building to have been left so lightly-guarded, other than the Mayor of DC’s refusal to beef up the Capitol Police in advance. We do not know right now if Mayor Bowser had been made aware of the FBI’s warning before January 6 or not, nor do we know what Majority Leader McConnell and Speaker Pelosi knew in advance of the riot.

Given that Pelosi has now staged a second impeachment scam based on the riot, and McConnell has expressed his own support of that effort, it is crucial that we find out whether they were warned in advance of the threat and chose to do nothing to prevent it, since that in and of itself might amount to at best an act of criminal negligence.

But you can be sure that it will be a cold day in hell before anyone at the FBI or DOJ will deliver that information to the public. After all, the interests of the DC Swamp UniParty are paramount. You little people can go pound sand.

That is all.

Trump’s Second Impeachment Won’t End the DC Swamp’s Delirium Towards Him

Delirium tremens

Delirium tremens is a rapid onset of confusion usually caused by withdrawal from alcohol.  Physical effects may include shaking, shivering, irregular heart rate, and sweating.

The shocking election of Donald Trump to the presidency in 2016 threw the DC Swamp into a state of political delirium. The threat Trump presented of forcing members in good standing of the DC UniParty to have to face withdrawal from their narcotic of ill-gotten financial gains via the Swamp’s broad variety of influence peddling schemes immediately threw every Swamp rat and snake and skunk into some or all of the symptoms described above.

Already frightened by his very presence as a contender for the Republican Party’s nomination that year, the Swamp began its efforts to take him out at the Obama FBI and DOJ with the whole illegal Crossfire Hurricane spying on his campaign. Such efforts increased exponentially upon his election, and continued to be mounted across the entirety of his presidency. Not a day went by without some facet of the never-ending coup d’etat being active, and it continued yesterday with a second sham impeachment vote in the House of Representatives, a vote that happened without the holding of a single hearing on the matter.

Some are saying this morning that that sham vote without a second of due process will be the end of it. They are wrong.

Well, at least he’s consistent. – Tom Cotton likely damaged his political future last week through his refusal to oppose the clearly fraudulent electoral vote that had been submitted to congress by the states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia and Arizona. The Senator from Arkansas said at the time that he believed his duty to uphold the constitution prevent his taking that step, an argument that is at best highly questionable.

On Wednesday, Cotton made the same argument in explaining his opposition to the Senate taking up yet another impeachment trial against President Donald Trump, whose term has just 6 days remaining. “Last week, I opposed the effort to reject certified electoral votes for the same reason — fidelity to the Constitution — I now oppose impeachment proceedings against a former president,” Cotton said.

In a statement released late Wednesday, Cotton said that the Senate simply lacks the constitutional authority to take up such a trial once the President has left office, and that its rules prevent it from even starting a trial, much less finishing one, before his term ends on January 20.

From a story at The Hill:

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), an influential conservative and possible contender for the White House in 2024, says the Senate lacks constitutional authority to hold an impeachment trial for President Trump once he leaves office.

“The Senate lacks constitutional authority to conduct impeachment proceedings against a former president. The Founders designed the impeachment process as a way to remove officeholders from public office — not an inquest against private citizens,” Cotton said in a statement Wednesday evening.

Cotton’s rationale for not voting to convict Trump once he leaves office will likely become political cover for other GOP senators to vote against a House-passed article of impeachment, even if they think Trump might have committed impeachable offenses.

Cotton in his statement Wednesday evening also argued that the Senate would not be able to conclude a trial of Trump in the next six days.

“The House has passed an article of impeachment against the president, but the Senate under its rules and precedents cannot start and conclude a fair trial before the president leaves office next week,” he said.

The House voted 232 to 197 Wednesday to impeach Trump a second time, with 10 Republican lawmakers voting in favor of the article, which charged Trump with inciting insurrection after a pro-Trump mob overtook the U.S. Capitol last week.

[End]

Cotton’s argument here is of course correct, but ignores the reality that this sham impeachment effort is not about removing Trump from office, but about preventing him from ever holding the office again in the future. So, while current Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will delay his way out of having to take this one up, we should expect new Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to do so when he assumes that job thanks to the fraudulent election on January 20.

As Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan pointed out during his floor speech yesterday, the Democrat/media/Big Tech/UniParty joint effort to remove Trump from office started just 19 minutes into his term on January 20, 2017, and it has never relented since:

“19 minutes, 19 minutes, four years ago on inauguration day, January 20th, 2017, 19 minutes into President Trump’s administration at 12:19 PM, the Washington Post headline was, ‘Campaign to impeach President Trump has begun.'” Jordan said.  “And now with just one week left, they’re still trying. In seven days, there will be a peaceful transfer of power, just like there has been every other time in our country, but Democrats are going to impeach President Trump, again.”

Understand this: Even after Trump leaves office, the effort to persecute him and destroy him will continue until he is either put away in prison or dead. Because the DC Swamp must make an example of him, as a warning to voters to never send anyone like him its way again. Trump threatened the very existence of everything the Swamp and its UniParty members in good standing have built over the last century, placing the entire house of cards in danger of tumbling down. Merely removing him from office was never going to be the end game. The end game is to completely destroy him and his family.

So if you’re thinking that this second impeachment scam will finally bring all the madness and delirium to a blessed end, you’re thinking about it all wrong. This is merely Act II of a theatrical tragedy that has several more acts to run.

That is all.

Tuesday News Roundup: America is in the Midst of a Fascist Takeover

We are unable to confirm reports that it is playing an endless loop of “Stairway to Heaven.” – Scientists revealed yesterday that they have discovered an FM radio signal emanating from the Jupiter moon of Gannymede:

The carnage at Fox News continues. – Barely a year ago, Fox News dominated the cable news landscape. It regularly fielded the 10 highest-rated programs in the space, and CNN seldom had an hour-long segment rated in the top 25.

That’s all changed now, as the latest weekly ratings clearly demonstrate:

Image

Fox primetime shows like Tucker Carlson and Sean Captain Tick Tock Hannity formerly drew 5 million viewers every night, often topping the competition at CNN and MSNBC combined. Today, Bret Baier, Martha MacAllum and Laura Ingraham are getting stomped by the lunatics at Mornng Joe.

This is a crisis. So, what does Fox management decide to do? Why, re-shuffle the lineup by moving the same failing hosts to different time slots. Check out this story at US News and World Report:

Both Fox and CNN announced lineup changes Monday, as is often the case for news organizations with a new president about to take power. CNN’s Jake Tapper and Fox’s John Roberts are among those taking on new roles.

Starting next Monday, Fox’s 7 p.m. hour will be led by a rotating group of opinion hosts, with a permanent host to be named later. For years, first with Shepard Smith and then with MacCallum, Fox has stressed news instead of opinion in that hour.

Yet MacCallum, who had been comfortably ahead in the ratings, has slipped behind both MSNBC and CNN at 7 p.m. since the election, the Nielsen company said. That’s also when Newsmax has seen its greatest success with a strongly pro-Trump show hosted by Greg Kelly.

In fact, Newsmax issued a statement that its improved daytime and 7 p.m. ratings since the election has triggered changes at Fox.

“The Fox is on the run,” Newsmax said.

Fox denied that Newsmax had anything to do with its moves, and pointed to a quote from an October article that said schedule changes were being considered. While Newsmax has sharply increased its audience since the election, with viewers spurred on by President Donald Trump, Fox routinely has more than triple Newsmax’s viewers.

“Chris Ruddy is irrelevant,” Fox said in a statement, referencing Newsmax’s CEO.

Still, there’s been a dramatic change in Fox’s daytime position.

[End]

This is basically just shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic at this point. Fox News hit an iceberg when it prematurely called the state of Arizona on Election Night and alienated an enormous portion of its viewer base. Reassigning the same old stale hosts to new time slots isn’t going to plug that massive hole in the engine room.

Obviously, Fox management has no idea what to do about the emergency it created, and that could not have happened to a nicer bunch of people.

We are in the midst of a fascist takeover of our country. – That’s what this is, folks. The first thing any budding fascist junta does is to destroy the freedoms of assembly, religion and speech. The next thing the junta does to the population it wishes to dominate is confiscate its guns.

The Democrat Party, with the willing assistance of the corrupt news media and Big Tech monopolies, is already well down this road. They have successfully used the COVID-19 pandemic to dramatically limit the freedoms of assembly and religion, and they are in the process of using last week’s Capitol riot as the lynchpin for destroying our freedom of speech.

As the Big Tech crackdown on conservative thought and speech has been taking place, the puppet masters for China Joe Potato Head Biden have had their elderly marionette out there talking about his plans to destroy the National Rifle Association, and thus the 2nd Amendment. To facilitate that effort, Biden plans to appoint a leftist radical to head up the Civil Rights Division at his reconstituted “Justice” Department. Her goal will be to ensure that the guns are taken from the evil white people first.

No, I’m not kidding.:

From the story at DailyWire:

Biden has openly called for banning semi-automatic firearms, high capacity magazines, and has said that he wants to tax owners of semi-automatic firearms under the National Firearms Act for weapons that they already own. An NFA tax stamp costs $200 per item.

Biden’s remarks come after national tensions escalated last week following a violent riot that broke out at the Capitol as Congress was certifying the Electoral College results. Biden also made remarks that were widely deemed racist and sexist following the incident when he announced that “priority” for economic business relief would be made in part based on race and gender.

Adding to the headache that Biden faces is a report from Fox News on the woman that he has nominated to head the civil rights division at the Department of Justice.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson highlighted previous remarks that Kristen Clarke has made that were widely panned online as racist.

Carlson read off the following quotes from Clarke:

  • “Please use the following theories and observations to assist you in your search for truth regarding the genetic differences between Blacks and whites.”
  • “One: Dr. Richard King reveals that at the core of the human brain is the ‘locus coeruleus,’ which is a structure that is Black, because it contains large amounts of neuro-melanin which is essential for its operation. Two: Black infants sit, stand, crawl and walk sooner than whites. Three: Carol Barnes notes that human mental processes are controlled by melanin–that same chemical which gives Blacks their superior physical and mental abilities. Four: Some scientists have revealed that most whites are unable to produce melanin because their pineal glands are often calcified or non-functioning. Pineal calcification rates with Africans are five to 15 percent, Asians 15 to 25 percent and Europeans 60 to 80 percent. This is the chemical basis for the cultural differences between Blacks and whites. Five: Melanin endows Blacks with greater mental, physical and spiritual abilities — something which cannot be measured based on Eurocentric standards.”

“Let that sink in. ‘Melanin endows black people with greater mental, physical and spiritual abilities,’” Carlson continued. “No, this isn’t an editorial from the Final Call, Louis Farrakhan’s free newspaper. It’s a direct quote from the person Joe Biden is about to put in charge of our country’s civil rights laws. Even at Harvard, crackpot theories like this were considered deranged and dangerous. After an outcry on campus, Kristen Clarke suggested that she didn’t ‘necessarily’ believe what she had written. The Harvard Crimson, a left-wing paper, did not buy that explanation. ‘Well does she or doesn’t she?’ wrote the editors. ‘So far, she has given us every indication that she does.’”

[End]

The next four years are going to be a time of unending crisis for our nation, brought to you courtesy of the aspiring fascist junta that is the Democrat Party.

Don’t shoot me, I’m just the messenger.

Donald Trump Holds The Future of the Republican Party in his Hands

With the Trump presidency now in its final days and the Democan/Republicrat UniParty back in control of congress, talk will now inevitably turn to whether the Trump Army of 75 million voters will move to create a third party, effectively destroying the Republican Party in the process. Of course, we get this same sort of discussion anytime either party suffers a major defeat, and such efforts in the past have always failed.

But this time, things could be different for one simple fact that Tucker Carlson pointed to during his monologue on Thursday night’s show: The current leaders of the Republican Party just don’t like the vast majority of the party’s voter base, and Donald Trump does.

Here’s an excerpt from a story at The Daily Caller:

Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Thursday that the Republican Party leadership doesn’t “like their own voters.”

“And they especially don’t want the voters that Trump brought,” Carlson continued. “Trump brought the party’s ranks noticeably downscale, ‘from the country club to the trailer park,’ as they often sneer. And this horrifies them. Many Republicans in Washington now despise the people they’re supposed to represent and protect.”

Carlson claimed that “socially anxious white professionals” feel contempt for “working-class people who look like them.”

“So if you want to understand the hatred, the real hatred, not just disagreement but gut level loathing and fear of Trump — in say New York or Washington or L.A. — you’ve got to understand that first. It’s not really Trump; it’s his voters. The new money class despises them,” Carlson said.

[End]

I disagree somewhat with Carlson’s last statement there: The visceral hatred of the Trump movement in the major media centers of the country are about both Trump and his voters. The hatred and fear of that movement is only amplified by the reality that it’s really more than 75 million, given that it’s been pretty unarguably demonstrated that the true Trump vote was artificially depressed in every state where Dominion Systems technology is in use.

And let’s be honest, the hatred between the establishment Republicans and the vast majority of the GOP voter base is entirely mutual. Here is what happened at Reagan National Airport on Friday when Sen. Lindsey Graham, who used his chairmanship of the Senate Judiciary Committee to avoid any real investigations into Obamagate and Spygate for the past two years, ran into a group of Trump supporters on Friday afternoon:

That’s an ugly scene, for sure. And remember, it’s a scene involving a politician whose Party’s ability to remain a national force depends on retaining the loyalty of those voters.

Seems like a pretty big lift, doesn’t it?

Meanwhile, the Republican National Committee re-elected Ronna Romney McDaniel, the niece of the head RINO himself, Mitt Romney, to be its leader for the coming four years:

To her credit, Ms. McDaniel worked hard to help President Trump achieve his re-election, often finding herself at odds with her Uncle Mitt in the process. At the same time, though, she has been the public face of a Party that has too often operated at odds with its own voter base.

Witness yesterday’s massive putsch against conservative users coordinated by leftist Big Tech monopolies like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google and Apple: The GOP had four years with a Republican president do to something, anything to exact some control over these corporate oligarchies, and did exactly nothing. As the purge was taking place Friday evening, not a single leader in the Republican Party had anything of any real note to say in opposition to it.

Now, after the predictably inept effort and bad outcome in the Georgia Senate runoff elections, the GOP has failed itself right back into the position it held in January of 2019: Not in control of a single lever of power in Washington, DC. As was clearly demonstrated over the past two months, that lack of control includes the U.S. Supreme Court despite Trump’s three appointments to that body.

I have never been in favor of blowing the whole thing up and starting over where the Republican Party is concerned. At similar junctures in the past, such as January 2009, it has always seemed to be that it would be more productive to work to reform the GOP from within. Given this current situation, and the near-universal disaffection of Trump voters from the GOP representatives they have sadly helped to elect, it is difficult to maintain that outlook any longer.

At best, the Republican Party has proven itself to be largely corrupt and hopelessly inept over the past four years. At worst, its elected representatives have demonstrated that, by and large, they have nothing but contempt for the people who elected them, as most recently demonstrated by their refusal to do anything to rein in the abuses of the Big Tech monopolies.

Donald Trump had 88 million followers to his now-banned Twitter account. Should he choose to do so, he has the ability to now lead much of this loyal base of support completely away from the Republican Party and establish a political party of his own. Given that Trump has no more use for the GOP’s elected officials than his supporters do, it seems unarguably true that the Republican Party’s continued existence as a national force in American politics stands on thinner ice than it ever has in the past.

It couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch of people.

Big Tech’s Anti-Conservatve Putsch Mirrors its ChiCom Masters

Well, the Big Tech purge hit in earnest on Friday evening, as President Donald Trump’s account was banned from Twitter and Facebook, and those two Orwellian firms joined with Apple, Google and Instagram to purge thousands of conservative-leaning accounts under the guise of a joint effort to prevent the spread of disinformation. This is perhaps the single most blatant example of mass anti-trust behavior in the nation’s history and the government is powerless to do anything about it because Mitch McConnell refused to force the repeal of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act into the Defense Authorization Act last month.

But elimination of accounts on these leftist platforms was far from the extent of yesterday’s Big Tech putsch: Both Apple and Google notified the owners of Parler that it would also be cancelled from their platforms unless it adopts the same sort of highly-discriminatory thought and speech controls used by Twitter and Facebook. Users of I-Phones and Google Pixel phones found themselves unable to download and use the Parler app, and that’s just the beginning.

Hilariously, Apple executives gave the following explanation of the company’s assault on Parler:

“We have received numerous complaints regarding objectionable content in your Parler service, accusations that the Parler app was used to plan, coordinate, and facilitate the illegal activities” at the US Capitol on 6 January, Apple wrote in an email to Parler executives. “The app also appears to continue to be used to plan and facilitate yet further illegal and dangerous activities.”

ummmm…what about Facebook, then? Facebook has been used to facilitate all manner of violent crimes, including the planning and execution of mass riots, an array of terrorist attacks that have killed hundreds of U.S. citizens, and a sad litany of too many rapes and murders to chronicle. If you can’t remember Apple issuing any similar advisory to Jeff Zuckerberg, well, that’s because it’s never happened.

All of this took place simultaneously with the delivery of a speech read by China Joe Potato Head Biden, in which he classified President Trump and all of his supporters as Nazis who deploy the Joseph Goebbels technique of the “Big Lie,” which of course just happens to be the Democrat Party’s main stock in trade.

Image

Goebbels, of course, used the technology of his day to advantage his Nazi Party exactly in the same manner as the Big Tech oligarchs of today are deploying theirs in concert with the strategic objectives of the Democrat Party. The Nazis ended up murdering 6 million Jews largely unnoticed by the rest of the world in part as a result of Goebbels’ careful planning and propaganda efforts.

This is, of course, the kind of brutish crackdown on free thought and speech that we would expect to see from the communist government in China. That should come as no surprise given that every one of the corporations engaging in the putsch is a ChiCom client company. It has been glaringly obvious for years now that the ambitions of these exact companies to capture the enormous Chinese market was causing them to conform their corporate policy actions to the demands of their ChiCom masters. And now, here we are with the entirely predictable ultimate outcome.

The GOP had four years to do something, anything, to crack down on the abuses of these tech monopolies, which became increasingly restrictive and overt throughout the four year term of President Trump. But, of course, the Republicans did nothing because most GOP members of congress don’t really see any problem with this kind of corporate behavior, and because those GOP congressmen and senators hate their voters every bit as much as the Democrats do.

President Trump created an account at Parler last night, and no doubt millions of his 88 million Twitter followers will do the same in the coming days. My own inbox is filled with request by friends to follow them over to Parler, along with other platforms like Gab, MeWe, CloutHub and others I’ve never even heard of. Thus do the Democrats and their Big Tech allies accomplish one of their main goals: To splinter the opposition into an array of competing factions.

Back in August of 2018, as it was becoming increasingly evident that the Democrats might be able to win a majority in the House of Representatives, I wrote about my hopes that President Trump would use his second two years in office to do an imitation of Teddy Roosevelt and clamp down on the growing threat to our nation that these Big Tech oligarchs represent. Unfortunately, the President, beset by all the controversies the Democrats and media kept swirling around him and having saddled himself with an Attorney General who was nothing more than a Deep State tool, failed as miserably as congress to take any real action in this arena.

Anyone who thinks a Biden Administration, with a very liberal Merrick Garland ensconced in the Attorney General’s office, will make the slightest move to rein in the brutish, un-American actions of these Big Tech monopolies probably also believes that China Joe was elected in a free and fair election.

Keep your heads on a swivel, folks: The assault on your freedoms is just beginning.  This will only get worse.

Tucker Carlson: Why Won’t Republicans Investigate Big Tech Monopolies?

Reuters reported this morning that the Department of Justice will propose legislation that would remove exemptions from anti-trust laws enjoyed by big tech firms like Google and Facebook, after Google was revealed yesterday to be engaging in very clear anti-trust behavior in its efforts to de-platform two conservative news sites.

From the Reuters piece:

 The U.S. Justice Department will propose legislation as soon as Wednesday to try to remove protections that big tech platforms like Alphabet’s (GOOGL.O) Google and Facebook (FB.O) have had for decades, a department official said on Wednesday, speaking on condition of anonymity.

President Donald Trump, who has battled Twitter (TWTR.N) and other tech companies over alleged censorship of conservative voices on social media platforms, said in late May he would propose legislation that may scrap or weaken the law shielding internet companies, in an extraordinary attempt to regulate the outlets where he has been criticized.

Trump wants to “remove or change” a provision of a law known as Section 230. Under the 1996 Communications Decency Act, Section 230 does not generally hold platforms responsible for what their users post and allows them to moderate the content of their sites as they see fit.

The Justice Department plans to make a legislative proposal that Congress would have to pass, according to the Wall Street Journal, which first reported the proposal.

[End]

Ok, that’s great, and it’s nice to see William Barr getting off his butt and doing something about this. Too bad the same cannot be said about the useless GOP caucus in either house of congress.

I linked to this Tucker Carlson monologue in this morning’s News Roundup, but after watching it again and reading the transcript, it merits more attention.

This is a monologue everyone needs to see and digest, especially Carlson’s points about the utter lack of concern about the clearly monopolistic and aggressive restraint of trade behaviors in which Google and some of the other tech giants are engaging in their zeal to silence conservative points of view in our country.

Carlson focuses in particularly on Utah Sen. Mike Lee, the ex-libertarian, open borders-supporting senator who mainly represents the U.S. Chamber of Commerce these days. No one should be surprised that a wholly-owned subsidiary of big corporations like Lee – who sadly chairs the Senate Antitrust Committee – is a complete sellout on this issue, just as he is a complete sellout on border security. But what comes as a somewhat bigger surprise if you haven’t been paying attention is that Georgia Congressman Doug Collins, who is running for the Senate right now, has been every bit as inactive in his role as ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, which would also have jurisdiction over this matter.

Below is the clip of the monologue, followed by a transcript of Carlson’s comments targeting Lee, Collins and other do-nothing congressional Republicans. On this as in so many other issues, you will see that the GOP congressional caucus remains utterly and completely worthless.

 

Partial Transcript:

All of this raises an interesting question, though. Google says it now holds conservative websites responsible for the comments of their readers. And yet, irony of ironies, thanks to a special carve-out Google has received from the United States Congress — something called Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, remember that — Google itself is not responsible for content on its platform because the Congress says it doesn’t have to be.

So, if you’re slandered by someone, for example, and that slander passes through Google servers, you cannot sue Google over it. Google is immune from the consequences. Immunity is a very nice thing to have if you’re a big company. Fox News doesn’t have it.

But again, thanks to Congress, Google does have immunity, and that’s one of the main reasons that Google’s founders are some of the richest and most powerful people in the world. Because Congress allowed them to be.

Sen. Josh Hawley has pointed this out. Let’s hope he and his colleagues act soon to revoke this privilege. If Google will not extend 230 protections to others, Google should not enjoy those protections itself, obviously.

Google should have faced these consequences a long time ago. Congress should have done this years ago. It’s been clear for a very long time that the Big Tech monopolies have now surpassed the federal government as the chief threat to our liberties.

Tucker Carlson, 2017: Google is the most powerful company in the history of the world. It’s the portal through which the bulk of our information flows. That means that if Google isn’t on the level, neither is our understanding of the world. To an unprecedented extent, Google controls reality.

Now, Google has already shown a disturbing willingness to distort reality for ideological ends.

And now it is happening. Google is acting directly to shape what people can say and what they’re allowed to speak. It’s a direct effort to stifle free speech. All of that is even truer today.

So why hasn’t the Congress done anything about this? Well, we’d love to ask Sen. Mike Lee of Utah. We invited him on the show. He would not come. We’ve invited him before, he would not come then.

Why do we ask him? Because Lee chairs the Senate Antitrust Subcommittee. He is the man who could do something to protect you from Google, but Lee has not bothered to do that. Instead, Mike Lee repeatedly has taken the side of the Big Tech companies over your constitutional rights — the constitutional rights Mike Lee is sworn to uphold and protect but refuses to.

So, the question is, why is Mike Lee still sitting in the United States Senate? He should not be in the Senate, that is for sure. We are hoping Mike Lee is soundly defeated in his next primary by someone who cares about the Constitution and more to the point, about protecting Americans from the actual threats they face. We are fervently rooting for that day. We will celebrate it when it happens. We trust it will.

So, how about House Republicans? Well, this spring, Congressman Doug Collins, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, and Jim Sensenbrenner, the ranking member of the Antitrust Subcommittee, released a letter defending Google and the other tech monopolies from scrutiny. They attacked any investigation of the tech companies that might have “preconceived conclusions that large tech companies are inherently bad or must be broken up.”

They actually wrote that. Who is paying these guys? And more to the point, whose side are they on? Again, let us hope for a vigorous primary challenge to these two and any who share this view.

Year in and year out, we vote for these people in the fervent hope they will stand up for us when it matters. Now it matters. And now, like every time before, they sell us out.

Time is up. Seriously, it is too much. The stakes are too high. We need better leadership. We need someone to protect us. Nobody is.

[End]

The apparent insanity involved here, of course, is that these supposedly “conservative” Republicans refuse to lift a finger to protect the constitutional rights of alternative media outlets that strive against the rank hostility from these social media giants and the mainstream news media to support the policies that the GOP supposedly hold dear.

The only logical assumption to make about that, given the facts on the ground, is that Republicans in congress really don’t care much about those policy positions at all. Thus, getting anything done will be left up entirely to President Trump and Attorney General Barr.

That is all.

Trump’s Post-Mid-Term Move: Make Like Teddy Roosevelt

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Democrats have now taken us back to the Klan days of the early 1960s – A gang of white Democrats assaulted a black woman in a cafe in Philadelphia Monday morning as she was attempting to have some breakfast.  Sound familiar?  No, I didn’t make that up – the black woman’s name is Candace Owens, a conservative activist who helped to start the rising #walkaway movement on Twitter.  The white Democrats were a bunch of Antifa thugs who found out where Ms. Owens was attempting to dine and literally ran her out of the place, as you can see below:

Had the thugs been wearing the traditional white robes and pointed hoods, the scene would have looked just like something out of “Mississippi Burning.”  Way to go, Democrats!  Aren’t you all so proud at what you have created?

 

Donald Trump, trust buster? – So, imagine this scenario if you will:  Executives from ExxonMobil, BP, Shell, Chevron and Total all get together in a room talk about implementing the exact same gasoline price increase on the following day.  Then they all go out the following day and implement that exact same gasoline price increase while publicly admitting what they’re doing.

Those folks are in a hell of a lot of trouble under our nation’s anti-trust laws, wouldn’t you say?  Yes, if you have firing synapses in your cranial cavity, that’s exactly what you would say.

It wouldn’t matter if you like those oil companies or hate those oil companies, and it doesn’t matter if you like their customers or hate their customers.  Those companies are all publicly traded corporations who together control a major share of the U.S. gasoline market, and are thus prevented from engaging in monopolistic behavior, such as fixing prices for their products.  Thus, assuming the Department of Justice actually performed its job – which is always a crap shoot these days, I admit – those executives would soon find themselves on the receiving end of subpoenas soon likely to be followed by indictments.

Now, imagine another scenario:  It’s January 2019 and President Donald Trump finds himself and his administration under unending assault from congress, where the Democrat Party has managed to win a thin majority in the House of Representatives in the mid-term elections.  No, I don’t think this is likely to actually happen, but play along with me here.

The President is very frustrated because, as hard as it has been to get congress to do anything with its current thin GOP majorities in both houses, it is now impossible to get anything through the new #Resistance Democrat House.  The Democrats are in the process of trying to impeach and remove him from office, but won’t be able to come up with the votes in either house of congress to do so, as their own house members who won traditionally GOP districts in 2018 are reluctant to adopt that fool’s errand as their own.

So, it’s gridlock in Washington, DC, and Donald Trump is not a guy who deals well with gridlock.  He’s got two more years to get stuff done before his re-election bid rolls around, and is left with accomplishing things either through the regulatory process, executive orders or, if he can get his attorney general to act, the courts. What to do?

It may be that several giant social media corporations just answered that question on Monday.  The leaders of Apple, Facebook, YouTube, Spotify and Pinterest all got together and decided – at the persistent urging of CNN and various leading Democrats – to remove radio talk show host and conspiracy promoter Alex Jones from their platforms permanently.  The same kind of monopolistic action denying an American citizen access to their platforms and the commerce he derives from them on the same day.  Classic corporate trust behavior.

Now, it doesn’t matter if you like these giant corporations or hate these giant corporations; it doesn’t matter if you like Alex Jones or hate Alex Jones.  These companies are publicly-traded corporations who cannot by law band together for the purpose of restraint of trade or denial of access to any class of people, and that’s exactly what they did to Mr. Jones on Monday.  And it’s what these huge corporations, along with their sister social media platform, Twitter, have been doing to conservative users of their products for years now.  This is why, whenever they get caught denying access to conservatives, they always blame the issue on some sort of “glitch.”

And it’s not just trust behavior that they are executing here.  They’re also in blatant violation of campaign finance laws.  In a very real way, their actions amount to massive in-kind political contributions to the Democrat Party.  They apparently believe they are above the law, and if Jeff Sessions turns out to be the worthless swamp skunk many believe him to be, they could be right, at least for the time being.

But if the elections go the wrong way this November, President Trump will likely be looking for ways to keep on #Winning on domestic policy during his second two years in office.  Playing a Teddy Rooseveltian Trust Buster to the foil of these increasingly radicalized and abusive Big Tech corporations might have a real appeal to him, and could end up being just the ticket to taking the congress back in 2020 and winning a second term in office.

Stranger things have happened.  Hell, stranger things happen every day, don’t they?

Just another day in Democrats hate this country America.

That is all.
