It’s nice to see how often a member of the press is wrong; however, it’s not nice to see State Department bias


Nicolle Wallace: the Typhoid Mary of disinformation

With a hearty thanks to Glenn Greenwald and a hat tip to Dan Bongino, I present the compilation of Mr. Greenwald that shows the incorrect proclamations of Nicolle Wallace and the press citations (often from left-wing sources) correcting her idiocy. Hopefully, you will enjoy this 26 minute, 20 second exposé.

To see a 2 minute, 20 second trailer, refer to the video below.


Let’s remember that Freedom of the Press includes their freedom to be total idiots and drive their employers into insolvency.

However, let’s also remember their hold over those who read and believe everything that comes out of the main stream press.

U.S. State Department funds groups hauling in cash to secretly blacklist conservative news

The Washington Examiner reports how the U.S. State Department has funded a group that has blacklisted conservative news and promoted liberal outlets.

Major ad companies are increasingly seeking guidance from purportedly “nonpartisan” groups claiming to be detecting and fighting online “disinformation.” These same “disinformation” monitors are compiling secret website blacklists and feeding them to ad companies, with the aim of defunding and shutting down disfavored speech, according to sources familiar with the situation, public memos, and emails obtained by the Washington Examiner.

Brands, which have been seeking to promote products online through multiple websites to expand their digital footprint, are turning to corporate digital ad companies keyed into global markets. In turn, some of these companies are contracting “disinformation” trackers to obtain private information about which websites they should purportedly “defund.”

The Global Disinformation Index, a British group with two affiliated U.S. nonprofit groups sharing similar board members, is one entity shaping the ad world behind the scenes. GDI’s CEO is Clare Melford, former senior vice president for MTV Networks, and its executive director is Daniel Rogers, a tech advisory board member for Human Rights First, a left-leaning nonprofit group that says disinformation fuels “violent extremism and public health crises.”

“It’s devastating,” Mike Benz, the State Department’s ex-deputy assistant for internal communications and information policy, told the Washington Examiner. “The implementation of ad revenue crushing sentinels like Newsguard, Global Disinformation Index, and the like has completely crippled the potential of alternative news sources to compete on an even economic playing field with approved media outlets like CNN and the New York Times.”

GDI’s mission is to “remove the financial incentive” to create “disinformation,” and its “core output” is a secretive “dynamic exclusion list” that rates news outlets based on their alleged disinformation “risk” factor, according to its website. There are at least 2,000 websites on this exclusion list, which has “had a significant impact on the advertising revenue that has gone to those sites,” Melford said on a March 2022 podcast episode hosted by the Safety Tech Innovation Network, a British government-backed group.

Along with similar organizations, GDI has been raking in cash as funding pours into disinformation tracking. Its charity in San Antonio, Texas, posted $345,000 in revenue in 2020, while its affiliated private foundation saw its roughly $19,600 revenue jump in 2019 to over $569,000 in 2020, according to tax records.

One influential ad company that has subscribed to GDI’s exclusion list to defund outlets purportedly spreading disinformation is Xandr, which Microsoft bought from AT&T in 2021 for $1 billion, according to emails leaked to the Washington Examiner.

Xandr informed companies in September 2022 that it would begin adopting GDI’s exclusion list to punish content that is “morally reprehensible or patently offensive,” lacking “redeeming social value,” or “could include false or misleading information,” emails show.

“To enforce this change, Xandr is partnering with the Global Disinformation Index (‘GDI’) and will be adopting their exclusion list,” Xandr wrote to other companies, linking to an appeal “webform” for publishers to complete if they disagree with their “risk” rating.

This exclusion list is developed with oversight from GDI’s “advisory panel,” which counts journalists, professors, and data scientists, according to GDI reports. Three advisers include Ben Nimmo, global lead for threat intelligence at Facebook’s parent company Meta, journalist Anne Applebaum, who said Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings are not “interesting,” and University of Washington professor Franziska Roesner.

One source close to ad-buying operations in right-leaning media told the Washington Examiner that the outlet is on GDI’s exclusion list, citing communications with ad companies. But the Washington Examiner was never contacted by GDI or informed of how it failed to meet GDI’s standards.

But GDI, which did not reply to several requests for its exclusion list, discloses in reports which outlets it identifies as the “riskiest” and “worst” offenders for peddling disinformation. These 10, which all skew to the right, are the American Spectator, Newsmax, the Federalist, the American Conservative, One America News, the Blaze, the Daily WireRealClearPolitics, Reason, and the New York Post.

“The American Conservative had one of the lowest scores in the study for bias, indicating that almost all of the content sampled was either somewhat or entirely biased,” said GDI, which did not clarify how its ratings may differ for websites publishing news or mostly opinion articles.

GDI’s “disinformation” tracking efforts, however, have even resulted in opinions being flagged. The organization alleged in an October 2022 memo that a Washington Examiner commentary article titled “The Left’s gender-bending obsession is tiresome and absurd” was “anti-LGBTQ+” disinformation.

That same memo singled out Amazon for hosting ads in the Washington Examiner.

Consider this: Nicolle Wallace and her network are on the State Department’s “good” list

Consider two things when you mull this over in your mind:

  1. Just as the White House cannot direct Twitter or Facebook to restrict the free speech rights of private citizens, neither can the State Department organize an effort that ends in the restriction of a free press.
  2. As noted in the headline above, Nicolle Wallace and MSNBC remain on the State Department’s “good” list. Brietbart, the Washington Examiner, the New York Post (of Hunter laptop fame) do not enjoy such a promotion.

Biden reaches to make Christians the enemies of the state


First step: make Latin Mass Catholics into a hate group

Purported FBI document suggests agency may be targeting Catholics who attend Latin Mass

Fox News reports on the demonization of a conservative Christian religious group over what are likely political differences on abortion and transgender ideology.

Former FBI special agent and federal whistleblower Kyle Seraphin reportedly obtained a leaked FBI document that outlines a plan to spy on a segment of one of America’s biggest religious denominations.

“The FBI’s Richmond Division would like to protect Virginians from the threat of ‘white supremacy,’ which it believes has found a home within Catholics who prefer the Latin Mass,” Seraphin reported for Uncover DC. “An intelligence analyst within the Richmond Field Office of the FBI released in a new finished intelligence product dated January 23, 2023, on Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremists (RMVE) and their interests in ‘Radical-Traditionalist Catholics’ or RTCs.”

He added that the document “assesses with ‘high confidence’ the FBI can mitigate the threat of Radical-Traditionalist Catholics by recruiting sources within the Catholic Church.”

Seraphin also suggested that the FBI’s priorities are not just misplaced, but entirely misguided by political bias.

Biden: Check your FBI for compliance with laws concerning whistleblowers

According to the National Review, Kyle Seraphin, who was a special agent at the bureau for six years was suspended without pay for 254 days starting in June 2022 for publishing the document Interest of Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremists in Radical Traditionalist Catholic Ideology Almost Certainly Presents New Mitigation Opportunities on

Whistleblower law maintains that the whistleblower cannot be retaliated against. FBI, you broke the law.

Second step: Minimize the human needs of Biden’s opposition

DOJ official to prosecute alleged pro-abortion vandals called crisis pregnancy centers “fake”

LifeSite News reports how Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke argued that pro-life pregnancy centers were “predatory” and targeted “women of color.” Oddly, Ms. Clarke does not make note of the location of the largest percentage of Planned Parenthood clinics.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) official who will oversee the prosecution of two activists charged with vandalizing pro-life pregnancy centers has previously maligned such centers as “fake” and “predatory,” according to a report by the Washington Free Beacon.

Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke, who leads the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division, will prosecute a case involving the two Florida residents who were indicted last week by a federal grand jury.

According to a press release published January 24 by the Biden administration’s Justice Department, Caleb Freestone (27) and Amber Smith-Stewart (23) allegedly targeted three pro-life centers in Florida, working with co-conspirators to spray-paint messages on the outer walls of the buildings that included “If abortions aren’t safe than [sic] niether [sic] are you,” “YOUR TIME IS UP!!, “WE’RE COMING for U,” and “We are everywhere,” LifeSiteNews previously reported.

In a Wednesday report, however, the Washington Free Beacon pointed out that Clarke herself, who heads up investigations into potential violations of the FACE act, has maligned the same sort of pro-life pregnancy centers that Freestone and Smith-Stewart are charged with targeting.

In 2018, Clarke blasted the U.S. Supreme Court for striking down a California law that would have forced pro-life centers to inform women about their options to kill their preborn babies.

“Make no mistake, today’s decision at the #SCOTUS striking down a CA disclosure requirement for crisis pregnancy centers is part of a coordinated strategy to tear down #RoevWade,” Clarke said, characterizing the pro-life movement as the “anti-choice movement,” which, she said “will stop at nothing.”

Something tells me that, like liberals think that minorities cannot be racist, this pro-abortionist thinks law only gets enforced against pro-lifers

Maybe Ms. Clarke thinks that her Democrat membership card exempts her from certain laws. That seems to work for Hillary and Joe.

Third step: Criminalize the opposition while ignoring crimes against them

White House rejects claim that pro-life activists targeted for federal arrest

The Washington Times laid out the facts that Karine Jean-Pierre would rather ignore regarding the persecution of pro-lifers and Christians.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre denied Monday that the administration is targeting anti-abortion activists, despite a recent rash of arrests, and refused to comment on attacks on pro-life pregnancy centers.

During a press briefing, a reporter asked: “Former President Donald Trump said the radical Democrats are locking up pro-life activists, persecuting their political opponents. Just what is your White House response?”

The Justice Department has arrested and charged 26 pro-life activists this year on charges of violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances law for protesting outside abortion clinics.

But Ms. Jean-Pierre was quick to deny the claim.

“Clearly that’s not true,” she said. “I’m not going to say more than that. It’s just not true. It’s false. It’s a lie. It’s not true. So I’m going to move on.”

The reporter followed up by saying “there’s this perception, though, that pro-life activists are being persecuted and in the meantime, pro-life pregnancy centers are being attacked.”

“That is just not something that I’m going to comment from here about what the former president said,” Ms. Jean-Pierre said. “I’m just not going to get any further.”

The Left keeps complaining about how fractured the society has become, but keeps coming with a hammer

If the left wants us to act like the United States of America, maybe they could stop attacking the things that draw us together. When we raise the flag, stop kneeling. When someone prays, give that person the respect you would want (and, if you have a means that you know will convince that person of your God, then present that later).

Nonetheless, surely we can agree that we were born with a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (with no apologies to Ms. Harris’ misquote).


Biden causes disasters while enforcing regulations on business to stop disaster


Biden’s DOT causes a multi-state ecological disaster

Ohio train derailment prompts water utility across state lines to take precautions as health concerns mount

Fox News shows us how Biden’s Department of Trans (purportedly headed by Mayor Pete) blew up a train and contaminated the air and water of many.

The train derailment in Ohio that spewed out boiling gas, prompting officials to then burn vinyl chloride in five tanker cars in an attempt to dispose of the toxic chemical in a controlled setting, has prompted a water utility as far away as West Virginia to take added precautions as health concerns mount.

West Virginia American Water said Sunday that it was enhancing its water treatment process as a precaution following the derailment of a train hauling chemicals that later sent up a toxic plume in East Palestine, Ohio, which sits near the border to Pennsylvania. The water utility is also going to install a secondary intake on the Guyandotte River in case there is a need to switch to an alternate water source. 

The utility noted that there has not been any change in raw water at its Ohio River intake.

“The health and safety of our customers is a priority, and there are currently no drinking water advisories in place for customers,” the company said in a statement.

In an interview Sunday, East Palestine Mayor Trent Conaway told WFMJ that all burning chemicals have been completely put out, but a “massive clean up project” continues with tanker trucks and portable tanks brought in. U.S. and Ohio Environmental Protection Agency officials are monitoring the situation daily, he said. 

“The reason for no press conference is right now it’s a slow process. We’re trying to be upfront with people,” Conaway said. “I think it’s going to take a very long time to recover from this.”

“It’s concerning to me, but the citizens also have to be aware. We have a closed water system. So the water system in the actual village of East Palestine is 100% safe,” the mayor said. “We’re getting the same numbers from two Thursdays ago before the accident it’s the same numbers. Our well field is way west of where the accident is and the creek where the water goes down.”

About 50 cars, including 10 carrying hazardous materials, derailed on Feb. 3 in the Ohio village of East Palestine. No one was injured in the derailment that investigators said was caused by a broken axle.

What happened to the trillions of dollars of infrastructure spending?

Why are we seeing such a spate of train derailments when we spent trillions on infrastructure? Why did the EPA decide to spill the chemical into pits and then try to burn it? Weren’t they aware of the chemical properties of the compound?

When the burnt vinyl chloride precipitates into the air and combines with atmospheric water to form hydrochloric acid, raining down on the crops of the Mid West and gathering into the Mississippi, will the Biden regime admit to what has been done? Does Biden care about the environment now or only when it costs oil workers their jobs?

Why are there reports that Mayor Pete seems to be focusing on equity in the work crews? Why are there reports that Mayor Pete has again been on parental leave?

These and many more questions need to be answered before Mayor Pete and his boss get fired.

Just as with the previous EPA-caused disaster on the Colorado river, where woke pinheads who profess concern for the environment lackadaisically poisoned a river. Yes, those EPA dips poisoned a river that so many poor Americans of Hispanic and Native lineages depended on — this hurts those who are forced to live close to nature.

Regulation under Biden turns out to be a business-strangler proposition

Biden’s regulatory machine wants to stifle the freedom of the American worker

The Washington Examiner digs into the Biden regulations and the predicaments created for workers by those regulations.

In 2020, California voters repudiated regulators’ efforts to stifle the gig economy, overturning much of Assembly Bill 5, a bill that sought to force independent contractors into full-time employee status. Instead of learning from such failed policies, the Biden administration is looking to impose a similar regulatory regime on the entire country.

The Biden administration’s Department of Labor, led by Secretary Marty Walsh, recently unveiled a proposal that would make it more difficult for employers to classify people known as “gig workers” as independent contractors. Their justification for this rule is that it would allow gig workers to access typical employee benefits such as minimum wage, overtime, and Social Security.

This proposed rule would reverse a Trump administration regulation under the Fair Labor Standards Act that protected independent contractors’ economic independence.

It should come as no surprise the Biden administration is taking this approach since liberal policymakers across the country have been trying to crack down on the gig economy for years. In California, the aforementioned AB 5 severely threatened independent contractors and companies that relied upon them — to the point that Uber and Lyft thought about leaving the state.

A public backlash forced California legislators to walk back some of this damaging policy, and the citizens of California solidified its demise when they voted that year to override the regulation and permit ride-booking app drivers to participate openly in free-market commercial activity that supported their families and generated positive economic effects for their communities.

Proponents of regulating the gig economy claim rules protecting independent contractors are only in place to help big business, but they fail to recognize that these independent contractors account for myriad professionals, such as writers, consultants, and even truckers.

Independent truckers, especially, have become essential to the supply chain. With so many people having goods delivered to their homes, they are performing an indispensable service to communities across the country. And just as they have developed their own operations and customer bases, they are now being forced to find ways to jump through the unnecessary regulatory hoops created for them by elected officials and bureaucrats.

One such hoop was highlighted in a recent lawsuit the California Trucking Association filed against the state. In the suit, the trucking organization argues the state’s ABC test, or the criteria that establish whether a worker is an employee or independent contractor, places an onerous burden on small trucking professionals.

The Biden administration’s proposed rule would expand this burden to every single trucking company in the United States, all while our country continues to struggle with a sluggish supply chain.

All of this to prove that Biden is not Trump. We knew that from the first month of increased gasoline prices.

It looks like this was all just one more attempt by Joe to prove that he doesn’t have anything in common with Trump. Since every Democrat city has turned into a hole of illegal aliens and crime, the distinction between Trump’s administration and Biden’s regime has become ever so evident. Therefore, Joe should do us all a favor and stop proving himself.



Things the main stream press decided to hide (part 3)

2022 in review: Issues ignored version

Twitter was in contact with multiple government agencies

Federales sought action on narratives on Ukraine and COVID

The Daily Wire points out how it was not just the FBI that directed Twitter to restrict topics, ban people, publish lies, and promote the Biden position on Ukraine and COVID.

Journalist Matt Taibbi released a new installment of “The Twitter Files” Saturday afternoon that showed that the FBI was not the only government agency that was in regular contact with Twitter about content on the platform.

Taibbi said that the State Department, Department of Defense, and Central Intelligence Agency were also involved in contacting the platform about potential foreign propaganda on the platform.

Internal company emails showed that FBI agent Elvis Chan asked Twitter executives if he could invite an “OGA” — Other Government Agency — to an upcoming conference.

The email referred to a Twitter employee, whose name was redacted, and said that people from the employee’s “former employer,” which a Twitter executive acknowledged meant the CIA, were specifically inquiring about the invitation.

“The government was in constant contact not just with Twitter but with virtually every major tech firm,” Taibbi said. “These included Facebook, Microsoft, Verizon, Reddit, even Pinterest, and many others. Industry players also held regular meetings without government.”

The new Twitter Files release also showed that FBI officials helped put the company in contact with local law enforcement officials to deal with issues.

Taibbi said that the FBI was “clearly tailoring” its searches on the platform to look for potential content violations that Twitter could take action on.

Banana-republic Biden here proves he will push us into a Democrat-dictatorship

Through this article, we see Biden:

  • Restricting free speech through the proxies of Twitter and the FBI, CIA, and NSA
  • Stepping into the role of the doctor as he restricts discussion of alternate medicines (such as hydrochloroquine and other medicines) for COVID
  • Silencing his opposition (while again by proxy) through banning people from platforms
  • Allowing only his approved narrative (never mind that it was a complete fabrication)

Therefore, the next time that I go on a rant regarding the fascism of Biden, don’t stop me. It does not constitute any exaggeration.

Breitbart names eighteen wasteful items in the $1.7 trillion spending bill

Here are the first six

Breitbart details eighteen insanely liberal projects that the $1.7 trillion splurge pushes (including further prosecution of 6 January detainees; LGBT projects; border security for Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, Tunisia and Oman; and more).

The $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill contains millions in wasteful spending, including $575 million for “reproductive health” where population growth “threatens biodiversity,” $11 million for LGBT-related projects, and millions more for border security for other countries.

Democrats are determined to pass the $1.7 trillion spending spree prior to Christmas following the Senate advancing the spending bill on Tuesday. The omnibus hit a snag mid-week due to Sen. Mike Lee’s (R-UT) Title 42 amendment, which lawmakers ultimately rejected.

The swamp quickly regained its footing, and the Senate passed the bill on Thursday in a 68-29 vote, despite conservatives in both chambers warning Republican colleagues to vote against the measure. Republican Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is among those who has backed the warnings of House Republicans threatening to thwart the legislative efforts of GOP senators who voted in favor of the bill.

Eighteen Republican senators ended up voting with Democrats to pass the $1.7 government spending spree.

The 4,155-page monster contains billions in earmarks and millions more on wasteful projects unrelated to keeping the government up and running.

Here are some of the highlights.

  1. The bill contains $45 billion to Ukraine. This is in addition to the $66 million given by American taxpayers earlier this year, bringing the total to $111 billion.Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has stated that the blank check is simply not enough:

    “We are not in an easy situation. The enemy is increasing its army. Our people are braver and need more powerful weapons,” he said about the Ukrainian war. “We will pass it on from the boys to the Congress, to the president of the United States. We are grateful for their support, but it is not enough. It is a hint — it is not enough.”

  2. The bill also designates part of D.C. as Ukrainian Independence Park and, as Breitbart News reported, “allows for signs around the park that ‘include information on the importance of the independence, freedom, and sovereignty of Ukraine and the solidarity between the people of Ukraine and the United States.’”
  3. $11 million is allotted for LGBT-themed projects. This includes $1.2 million to San Diego Community College for “centers to support LGBT students,” $3 million for the American LGBTQ+ Museum in New York City, $750,000 for the “TransLatin@ Coalition” to provide “workforce development programs and supportive services for Transgender, Gender nonconforming and Intersex (TGI) immigrant women in Los Angeles,” and $105,000 going toward what has been described as a “mentoring program for LGBT youth in the greater Pittsburg area.” Another $856,000 is allotted for an “LGBT Center” in New York as well.
  4. The bill designates tens of millions for “necessary expenses associated with the restoration of Pacific salmon populations, $65,000,000, to remain available until September 30, 2024.” The words “salmon” or “salmonoid” are mentioned 48 times throughout the bill.
  5. The bill includes over half a billion, $575 million, to be used for “family planning” or “reproductive health.” This includes areas where lawmakers say population growth “threatens biodiversity.” The bill states in part, “That of the funds appropriated under title III of this Act, not less than $575,000,000 should be made available for family planning/reproductive health, including in areas where population growth threatens biodiversity or endangered species.”
  6. 19 earmarks totaling $60 million are set aside for RINO Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). This includes $500,000 for the “Restoring Indigenous Safety and Empowerment (RISE) Tribal Domestic Violence Shelter for Helping Ourselves Prevent Emergencies.”

The six items I included are aggrivating. The eighteen cited by Breitbart are maddening

The six items that I list include enough idiocy to be aggrivating. The eighteen things mentioned by Breitbart could drive one to madness. However, to consider the degree of insanity inclosed in over 4,000 pages that had to be voted on within a matter of days, then a new level of craziness gets involved. Therefore, I find myself agreeing with Representative Dan Crenshaw as he uses a Townhall article to explain his vote against the $17 trillion omnibus bill.

Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw is detailing why he voted against the $1.7 trillion omnibus package on Friday, paving the way for President Joe Biden’s signature after the monster legislation was passed in the U.S. Senate. He’s also calling claims lawmakers didn’t have enough time to read the legislation an “excuse” for voting against it, arguing there are much better reasons why the bill should have been opposed.

Hence, I agree with Representative Crenshaw for this time and thank him for his “no” vote.


More on Twitter/Democrat collusion

Musk fires James Baker, the former FBI right-hand to Comey who pushed “Russia collusion,” over suppressing the Hunter Biden story in Twitter

The New York Post exposes the next chapter in the Twitter collusion saga by reporting on the firing of James Baker.

Elon Musk has fired Twitter’s deputy general counsel, James Baker, over his alleged suppression of internal documents about blocking The Post’s Hunter Biden laptop exposé.

“In light of concerns about Baker’s possible role in suppression of information important to the public dialogue, he was exited from Twitter today,” Musk tweeted Tuesday.

Musk added that he questioned Baker before his firing about the events surrounding the laptop suppression scandal and that the lawyer’s explanation was “unconvincing.” 

Baker, a former top FBI lawyer, was discovered to be secretly vetting the internal Twitter documents before they could be reviewed by journalists, leading to a delay in the release of more material related to the company’s censorship scandal. 

“On Friday, the first installment of the Twitter files was published here. We expected to publish more over the weekend. Many wondered why there was a delay,” independent journalist Matt Taibbi tweeted on Tuesday.

“We can now tell you part of the reason why. On Tuesday, Twitter Deputy General Counsel (and former FBI General Counsel) Jim Baker was fired. Among the reasons? Vetting the first batch of ‘Twitter Files’ – without knowledge of new management,” Taibbi added.

Taibbi further revealed that former Wall Street Journal and New York Times writer Bari Weiss is also involved in reviewing the social media giant’s internal documents related to The Post’s Hunter Biden story and that it is was her who discovered Baker’s involvement, which Musk was unaware of, according to Taibbi.

Someone get the New York Times a Life Alert pendant

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

All the New York Times can occupy itself with is a review of the “media conversation” surrounding the release of information by Musk. And most of this is a condemnation of Matt Taibbi (the only liberal who seems to be intent on actually also being a real journalist).

Musk says Twitter suppressed free speech under orders from government

The Epoch Times outlines Elon Musk’s argument that Twitter conspired to violate the First Amendment.

Elon Musk suggested that Twitter was acting under government orders to suppress free speech, with his remarks coming hot on the heels of the release of a trove of documents that lift the lid on some of the social media platform’s censorship machinations around the 2020 presidential election. “Twitter acting by itself to suppress free speech is not a 1st amendment violation, but acting under orders from the government to suppress free speech, with no judicial review, is,” Musk said in a tweet late Friday. Musk’s remarks came in the context of Friday’s unveiling of a series of internal Twitter communications that give insight into steps taken by staff at the social media platform around suppressing the New York Post’s explosive Hunter Biden laptop story.

It was not just Biden’s FBI that recently worked to suppress the free flow of information at Twitter. Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs got tweets removed from Twitter

BizPacReview lays out the scene where Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (aka corrupt governor-elect Katie Hobbs) got tweets removed from Twitter.

As Americans are wrapping their heads around the implications of Elon Musk’s “Twitter Files,” a leaked internal email reveals that Arizona Governor-elect and current Secretary of State Katie Hobbs allegedly colluded with Twitter’s old guard by flagging accounts she determined were spreading election “misinformation.”

In an email dated January 7, 2021, the communications director for the Office of the Arizona Secretary of State reportedly emailed the Center for Internet Security (CIS), a 501 nonprofit that claims to be “leading the global community to secure our ever-changing connected world,” to say, “I am flagging this twitter account for your review.”

The subject line read, “Election Related Misinformation” and two people at the Secretary of State’s office were copied on the request.

Additionally, the Daily Wire reports, the email went to “an unknown employee at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, a branch under the federal government’s Department of Homeland Security.”

The email was forwarded to an employee at Twitter along with a note saying, “Please see this report below from the Arizona SOS office. Please let me know if you have any questions.”

The dutiful Twitter employee reportedly emailed back, thanking the sender and saying, “We will escalate.”

A follow-up email reads, “Both Tweets have been removed from the service.”

Oddly, the apologists on the left say the government was not involved

As demonstrated by the 27 January 2021 article in The Atlantic, the left has no problem with trying to dissuade us of government’s involvement in this censorship. Rather, they would have us believe it all stems from company fiat.

There is a rich historical irony to the fact that today, conservatives are the ones who argue most forcefully that the decisions by private companies to “deplatform” certain speakers threaten what President Donald Trump described in 2020 as the “bedrock” American right to freedom of speech. Until very recently, this was an argument made almost exclusively by those on the left.

The decision by Twitter, Facebook, and a host of other social-media outlets to ban Trump from their platforms after the January 6 attack on the Capitol intensified conservatives’ long-standing concerns that the powerful tech industry is violating their free-speech rights. Trump encouraged and amplified these arguments when he issued a (largely symbolic) executive order in May 2020 declaring that “free speech is the bedrock of American democracy,” and insisted that “in a country that has long cherished the freedom of expression, we cannot allow a limited number of online platforms to hand pick the speech that Americans may access and convey.”*

The deplatforming of the president appeared to many conservatives to offer vivid proof that these companies are just as dangerous to freedom of speech as Trump had claimed. Steve Daines, a Republican senator from Montana, took to Twitter to attack “Big Tech” for “censoring [Trump] and the free speech of American citizens.” Trump’s trade adviser, Peter Navarro, claimed that the platforms’ decision to restrict speech “threatened our democracy.” And on the floor of the Capitol building, newly sworn-in Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia wore a mask bearing a single word—censored—in stark white letters. Many liberals, meanwhile, insisted that the decision to deplatform the president had nothing to do with freedom of speech, at least not as protected by the First Amendment.

This is something of a reversal. Indeed, the idea that private actors, not just government officials, might threaten the freedom of speech guaranteed by the First Amendment, as well as the other rights protected by the Constitution, was first suggested by big-government liberals, whom contemporary conservatives love to hate. In the early 20th century, progressive legal scholars such as Felix Cohen and Robert Hale argued against the notion that the Constitution protects rights including freedom of speech from only government action. Private corporations wield tremendous power over individuals’ lives and fortunes, and to overlook that power when interpreting the meaning of constitutionally protected rights, Cohen and Hale believed, would make no sense.

(Read more at The Atlantic, but their verbosity primarily covers for their bias)

Their problem remains with the fact of things like FEC records

The apologists on the left for the Biden regime say the government was not involved in this suppression. Or rather, they gaslight us again, since their claims are directly contradicted by the declaration to the FEC by Yoel Roth, Twitter’s legal counsel. Who said (on page 25 of the document at paragraph 10):

Since 2018, I have had regular meetings with the Office of the Director of
National Intelligence, the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, and industry peers
regarding election security.

Those (National Intelligence, Department of Homeland Security, and the FBI), to me, seem like divisions of government. It seems that other thinking individuals, like Elon Musk, might think the same.

Still, to further prove the point, paragraph 11 says:

During these weekly meetings, the federal law enforcement agencies communicated that they expected “hack-and-leak operations” by state actors might occur in the period shortly before the 2020 presidential election, likely in October. I was told in these meetings that the intelligence community expected that individuals associated with political campaigns would be subject to hacking attacks and that material obtained through those hacking attacks would likely be disseminated over social media platforms, including Twitter. These expectations of hack-and-leak operations were discussed throughout 2020. I also learned in these meetings that there were rumors that a hack-and-leak operation would involve Hunter Biden.

If (like the Democrat apologists) you seek to disprove government involvement in the suppression of free speech, “these weekly meeting” by “federal law enforcement agencies” communicating with groups under them who must do their bidding or face consequences, then you have to prove a negative. That is a near impossibility.


A service for CBS (who can’t expose the lies of Joe Biden)

Deconstructing arrogance and idiocy in reporters of CBS

Admittedly, when I saw Scott Pelley of CBS and Sixty Minutes bumbling and blathering on with Biden as they walked through a mostly-empty Detroit Auto Show (as a Sixty Minutes ad), I was not intrigued. I could not care less what that doddering old fool might say or what the incurious “journalist” might ask; therefore, I never watched that once-respectable news show. However, when Bunkerville built a blog post from Miranda Devine tweets that encapsulated the interview, I started to wonder, “How many verifiable lies could CBS have caught had they been an honest news organization rather than a branch of the Democrat propaganda machine?”

Therefore, I dug into the CBS transcript and compared that to reality in order to create the following table. Thence, hopefully the top-rated journals linked in the table might expose either Joe’s lies or his incompetence.

Pelley/Biden exchange Headlines disproving Biden
Scott Pelley: Sir, with the Federal Reserve rapidly raising interest rates, what can you do to prevent a recession?
Joe Biden: Continue to grow the economy. And we’re growing the economy. It’s growing in– in a way that it hasn’t in years and years.
The Wall Street Journal reports in a 28 July 2022 article that Biden faces recession worries after six months of economic contraction
The Daily Mail informed us in a 21 August 2022 article that 97% of US executives believe US is now in a recession or close to one, despite Biden’s denials

Biden should consider the common voter

Biden’s statement does not stay in touch with the reality that people who pump gas or buy food have to experience. Wake up, Joe and Scott.

Scott Pelley: Mr. President, first Detroit Auto Show in three years. Is the pandemic over?
Joe Biden: The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with COVID. We’re still doing a lotta work on it. It’s– but the pandemic is over. if you notice, no one’s wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape. And so I think it’s changing. And I think this is a perfect example of it.
Politico says in a 17 August 2022 article that HHS says it plans to extend Covid-19 public health emergency
ABC News point in a 19 September 2022 article to Democrats who buck Biden’s case for the pandemic being over due to pandemic aid

Too many powerful groups (including cheating Democrats) will stand against this

I’m sorry, but I cannot believe that the Democrat machine that Biden has set up in pharmaceuticals, education, and the voting systems will go away that easily. I don’t believe that people will let the money that was allocated be turned to something out of their control.

Scott Pelley: Have you been briefed, sir, on the top-secret documents that were found at Mar-a-Lago?
Joe Biden: No.
Scott Pelley: No one has come to you to warn you that important national security secrets were revealed by the storage of those documents at the former president’s home?
Joe Biden: I have not personally spoken to anyone on that– in that regard. I’m sure my administration is aware of all of that, and so is the National Security Council. But I have not.
Scott Pelley: were you notified of the FBI’s execution of a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago?
Joe Biden: No. Not ahead of time.
The New York Post outlines in a 23 August 2022 article What did Biden ‘really’ know about the drive to raid Mar-a-Lago?
Fox News quotes a former Supreme Court clerk who says in a 24 August 2022 article that “It’s not believable” Biden didn’t know about FBI raid

Biden has attended too many briefings for me to believe this

If all other presidents since Lincoln have had daily briefings on the events occurring within their administration, why wouldn’t that happen with Dementia Joe and his FBI? Even if you ignore the report from the New York Post, I just don’t buy the idea that he was not involved.

Scott Pelley: Which leads to my next question. You are more aware of this than anyone. Some people ask whether you are fit for the job. And when you hear that, I wonder what you think.
Joe Biden: Watch me. And ma– honest to God, that’s all I think. Watch me. If you think I don’t have the energy level or the mental acuity, then– then, you know, that’s one thing. It’s another thing, you just watch and– and, you know, keep my schedule. Do what I’m doing. I– I think that– you know– I don’t– when I sit down with our NATO allies and keep ’em together, I don’t have ’em saying, “Wait a minute, w– how– how old are you? What are you– what say?” You know, I mean, it’s a matter of, you know, that old expression: The proof of the pudding’s in the eating. I mean, I– I– I respect the fact that people would say, you know, “You’re old.” And– but I think it relates to h– how much energy you have, and whether or not the job you’re doing is one consistent with what any person of any age would be able to do.
The New York Post showed us in a 14 April 2022 article and video how Biden shakes hands with thin air after North Carolina speech
The New York Post shows in a short video how Joe Biden trips again as he goes up the stairs to Air Force One

Inserting a video of Biden stammering would be overkill

But I do like SocialistMop.

Scott Pelley: What should Chinese President Xi know about your commitment to Taiwan?
Joe Biden: We agree with what we signed onto a long time ago. And that there’s one China policy, and Taiwan makes their own judgments about their independence. We are not moving– we’re not encouraging their being independent. We’re not– that– that’s their decision.
Scott Pelley: But would U.S. Forces defend the island?
Joe Biden: Yes, if in fact there was an unprecedented attack.
The New York Post reports in a 19 September 2022 article that Biden says US troops would defend Taiwan; White House backtracks remarks
The New York Post pointed out regarding a previous flub (23 May 2022) that White House walks back Biden Taiwan defense claim for third time in 9 months
Politico reported in a 23 May 2022 article that Biden’s Taiwan defense pledge inflames U.S.-China relations

A little push back would have been nice

Even if they provided only half of the push back that they gave to President Trump when he mentioned the proven hoax started by Hillary, I might start to watch them for 10 minutes. But I will not watch Sixty Minutes.


Mass shooting and self-defense news made silent by mass media

Bad news for the anti-gun lobby

Armed bystander hailed as hero (but not by the main-stream media)

Indianapolis, Indiana NBC affiliate WHTR reports that a good guy with a gun put down the perpetrator of a mass shooting (where three or more people were shot and killed in a single event).

At 5:57:03 p.m., Elisjsha Dicken, an armed bystander, fired on the shooter from 40 yards away, according to police. Within 15 seconds from when the shooting began, Dicken fired 10 rounds hitting the shooter as the shooter tried to retreat into the bathroom but collapsed and died.

(Read of the thug who killed three others and more of the hero who stopped him at WHTR)

Oddly, unlike the Uvalde event that happened two months ago, this story has not been picked up by the main stream media

Unlike the Uvalde event, where we are getting nightly reports on how dissatisfied the local population has become with the situation, we hear nothing of this story on main stream media.

However, with the numbers of felons being released by Democrat district attorneys and the flood of drugs across our border, this problem proliferates to a degree unimaginable for many. Still, if you want proof, do a search (or three, as with this post) and see what stories you find. Just make certain to use a different search engine for each search (for most complete results).

A good person with a gun defends freedom from a knife-wielding intruder

An 80-year-old woman shoots and kills young intruder after he stabs her husband

The Washington Post conveys the story of a Sultan, Washington woman who was forced to defend herself and her son after her husband was stabbed.

Age is nothing but a number.

An 80-year-old woman in the small town of Sultan, Wash., proved that Thursday night when she shot and killed an intruder who broke into her home.

At the moment, details are thin.

A man from Gold Bar, Wash. — a town of about 2,000 — broke into the woman’s home around 8:30 p.m. Thursday while she was enjoying an evening with her husband, 75, and son, 45. According to a Komo News report, police said the man broke in through the back door. After hearing a noise, the woman walked into the back room, where the 25-year-old intruder stood, wielding a large knife.

Her husband was on the ground.

The intruder had stabbed her husband in the abdomen, felling but not killing him. Before calling 911, the woman took matters into her own hands, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. She snuck in the back bedroom, presumably unnoticed, where she grabbed a gun she hides there.

She returned to the main room, took aim and fired several shots into the intruder, killing him.

She and her son managed to escape without any injuries, authorities said. Her husband was airlifted to the Harborview Regional Medical Center.

Whoever voted for the open borders of Biden voted for this drug epidemic

Let’s be clear: everyone who voted to open the Southern border to unchecked entry also voted for this drug epidemic.

If you don’t like Mexican opioids and Chinese synthetic opioids flooding the streets of your small town, then don’t vote for a Chinese/Mexican/Ukrainian/Russian-connected politician.

Another good person with a gun stops a thug with a knife

“I know I did the right thing:” Customer shoots and kills armed robber at gas station

Saint Louis, Missouri NBC affiliate KSDK tells us how a customer stepped in to stop an armed robber holding a knife to the clerk’s neck.

Most people would try to run away from a robbery situation, but one customer felt called to run toward it.  

His courageous effort ended in a deadly shooting, which possibly saved more lives than the one lost.

“Taking somebody’s life is not an everyday thing, neither is saving someone’s life,” the customer, who wished to remain anonymous said. 

Those thoughts now consume his mind after not only witnessing an armed robbery Saturday morning at a St. Charles QuikTrip but also stepping in to stop it.

“He grabbed a backpack and ran inside, looking for I guess the clerk. I saw him grab her and drag her to the front to the counter, something wasn’t right when I saw that, so me being concealed carry, I had my gun on me and I just waited,” the customer said. 

The customer saw it all unfold from his car, parked in front of the QT on First Capitol Drive.

 “I walked up to the door and I saw him with a knife to her throat. She was emptying out the cash register and I took a step in and peeked my head in to ask if everything was okay. I couldn’t see his face but he was saying yes, but I could see her face she was saying no, she was scared,” he said.

Police named the robbery suspect 26-year-old Lance Bush from St. Louis City. “I pulled my gun up and I asked him are you sure everything’s okay and that’s when the suspect said ‘no it’s not okay, but I got something for you and he grabbed his bag, ran from around the counter and started running towards me and that’s when I fired shots,” the customer said.

He recalls shooting four times before Bush fell to the floor. Shortly after he told the clerk to call the police, he did as well. 

“I don’t think I honestly had a choice. He already had a knife at her throat, he could’ve pulled out something bigger than what I had then you would’ve had two people dead instead of one,” he said. 

(Read of the robber’s crime spree at KSDK)

Despite the obvious evil of the robber, the “journalist” ends with one dig

Despite the following facts:

  • The robber was holding a knife to the neck of a female clerk while robbing the gas station
  • The robber had stolen a vehicle to get to the gas station
  • The robber had threatened and was running at the hero when the robber was shot
  • The robber was suspected of having committed two other armed robberies that morning

Still, the “journalist” ends with:

The customer was detained and released. 

At this time, he says he has not been charged.

Anti-gun bias, much? Wish for heroes to be punished and criminals released, much?


Biden sets himself apart from previous Democrat presidents

Obama was the Muslim-promoting president. Biden is the anti-Christian president

The U.S. State Department is looking for organizations that will help spread atheism and humanism throughout the globe

American Family News illustrates how Joe Biden has set his State Department to creating a state-supported church of atheism.

Specifically sought are organizations that will help form or strengthen godless networks, lobby foreign governments for the acceptance of atheism, and create ads in foreign countries touting the worldview.

Congressman Jim Banks (IN), head of the House Republican Study Committee, has penned a letter to Secretary of State Anthony Blinken demanding an explanation.

“The State Department under President Biden put out a competitive process to award grants of up to a half-million dollars to organizations who are committed to the practice of spreading atheism or humanism, and specifically in South and Central Asia or the Middle East and North Africa,” says Banks.

He says the State Department is using religious freedom as a cover for this unconstitutional government endorsement of religion. But given the Biden administration’s antipathy toward faith, he suspects there is a darker motive.

“I think this probably has something to do with efforts by this administration to weaken the faith systems and the institutions in these countries,” Banks submits. 

(Read more of the Banks observations at American Family News)

Does this grow from Biden’s perception that the Church supports pro-life initiatives?

Has Dementia Joe decided to evangelize atheism and humanism throughout the world because the Church has taken up the mantle of supporting the most helpless among us (the unborn)?

Bill Clinton wanted abortion to be “safe, legal, and rare.” Biden wants to completely protect it

Biden signs executive order protecting abortion

Live Action reports how Joe Biden jumped to undemocratically “save” abortion by dictate rather than let the democratic process at the states take charge.

President Joe Biden has finally responded to the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade with an executive order protecting abortion, which is the intentional homicide of undelivered human beings.

Biden released a statement Friday morning announcing his intention to sign the order, while continuing to put pressure on Congress to codify Roe into federal law.

Under the order, access to abortion pills will be expanded, while strengthening enforcement of the Obama Administration’s birth control mandate, and organizing pro bono lawyers to defend anyone facing charges relating to abortion. Additionally, the order will provide $3 million in new funding for family planning organizations, provide leave for federal employees traveling for abortion, and protect access to abortion for female service members in the military.

He also has vowed to see Roe codified into law and appoint pro-abortion judges throughout the country to keep abortion protected.

According to CNN, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will have to submit a report within 30 days outlining how they will put the order’s requirements into place. The order also creates an interagency task force between the HHS and the White House Gender Policy Council, and will include Attorney General Merrick Garland.

(Read about other options considered and a debunking of the Biden claims on the Dobbs decision at Live Action)

One would think that Biden would at least put a wetted finger to the wind

Rather than commit himself wholeheartedly to the pro-abortion cause, you would think that Catholic Joe would at least sample the electorate to find how much support remains for his abortion-across-all-nine-months approach.


Democrats describe themselves and blame Republicans

Mirror, Mirror on the wall, how can Democrats delude of them all? Democrats describe themselves

Democrats use the 6 January 2021 riot as “partisan political weapon” according to Representative McCarthy

The New York Post reports the observations of Representative McCarthy as he points to the shameless acts of Democrats calling conservatives “a threat to democracy.”

kevin-mccarthyHouse Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy slammed Democrats over the weekend for using the Jan. 6 Capitol riot as a “partisan political weapon” just days before the first anniversary of the violent attack. 

In a Sunday letter to members of his conference, McCarthy (R-Calif.) described 2022 as “a big year” and “maybe the most important of our time in Congress.” 

“We all enter 2022 with renewed optimism, but against the same backdrop of challenges that faced our country this past year,” McCarthy wrote. “No matter how you slice it, the first year of the Biden administration with Democrat control of Washington has set our nation back.” 

The Republican leader highlighted inflation, the rise in crime, the southern border crisis and the recent surge of COVID-19 that has led to thousands of flight cancellations and hours-long testing lines. 

“Even now, we are seeing the President’s central promise — ‘to shut down the virus’ — be so mismanaged that Americans are starting the year with as much uncertainty and unease as at the start of the pandemic,” McCarthy claimed.

Later in the letter, the Republican leader pivoted to the Jan. 6 anniversary, writing that the actions by President Donald Trump supporters that day were “lawless and as wrong as wrong can be.”

“Our Capitol should never be compromised and those who broke the law deserve to face legal repercussions and full accountability,” McCarthy added. “Unfortunately, one year later, the majority party seems no closer to answering the central question of how the Capitol was left so unprepared and what must be done to ensure it never happens again. Instead, they are using it as a partisan political weapon to further divide our country.”

(Read of the planned Democrat response to 6 January 2021 at the New York Post)

If this were only a review of Democrat foibles, it would be enough

Were this just a review of the idiotic moves of San Fran Nan and her compatriots, this would be enough. However, with do-nothing McCarthy seems intent here on driving away the conservatives who might vote for Republicans and endearing himself to the Democrats.

Does he expect the Democrat bill that shifts all election powers to federal hands to not be overturned by the Supreme Court? Maybe he knows about turncoats on the court.

Does he expect a select number of turncoat Republicans to vote for the measure, so that no filibuster is needed in the Senate? Either the stupidity or the Machiavellian moves behind this letter abound. Maybe both.

Biden, Harris to speak on Jan. 6 while Cheney says GOP must pick Trump or Constitution

The New York Post also reported on how Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have been scheduled to deliver 6 January Capitol Riot speeches.

The White House has announced that President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will deliver remarks Thursday to mark the anniversary of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot as lawmakers prepare a series of events reflecting on the events of that day. 

Hours before the White House announcement, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), vice chair of the House select committee investigating the riot, warned on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday that the GOP “can either be loyal to our Constitution or loyal to Donald Trump, but we cannot be both.” 

“Any man who would provoke a violent assault on the Capitol to stop the counting of electoral votes, any man who would watch television as police officers were being beaten, as his supporters were invading the Capitol of the United States, is clearly unfit for future office, clearly can never be anywhere near the Oval Office ever again,” Cheney told host George Stephanopoulos.

The Wyoming lawmaker has become a staunch critic of the former president, despite voting with his position nearly 93 percent of the time. 

Cheney told “This Week” that Trump “crossed lines yno American president has ever crossed before,” saying that “when a president refuses to tell the mob to stop, when he refuses to defend any of the coordinate branches of government, he cannot be trusted.” 

The violence of Jan. 6, 2021, began after hundreds of Trump supporters marched to the Capitol from a rally where the 45th president urged then-Vice President Mike Pence to remain “loyal” and stop the congressional count of electoral votes.

(Read about Trump’s original reaction to the riots and more current responses from Nancy at the New York Post)

These idiots hold a mirror and attribute the reflection to conservatives

While President Trump may have kept himself from using the term “loyal” and just said “constitutional” or “true to the voters,” I cannot disagree with the underlying sentiment. Oddly, in this instance, the Democrats (both the registered ones and the ones like Cheney) decide to look in the mirror and attribute the reflection to conservatives. They act like there are no videos out there. They act like new videos don’t surface daily and that non-liberal platforms allow those videos to remain out there.

As proof of the effects of Democrat policies, a grocery store chain implements policy

Supermarket chain Hy-Vee introduces new security efforts as smash-and-grab robberies continue

The Daily Wire tells us how Hy-Vee has implemented security measures to countermand the effects of Democrat policies that release criminals for “low-dollar” crime.

Hy-Vee — a supermarket chain that operates in the Midwest — launched a “Retail Security Team” amid a rise in smash-and-grab robberies.

The company said in a statement:

As part of its ongoing efforts to ensure the health and safety of both its customers and employees, Hy-Vee is introducing its new Hy-Vee Retail Security team to retail stores across its eight-state region. Hy-Vee has long worked with third-party security contractors or off-duty law enforcement that work in a security capacity throughout its eight-state region. The goal with this team is to create a consistent look for the security team and consistent approach to customer service and security across all of stores.

Hy-Vee Retail Security officers will be present in Hy-Vee stores during operating hours. These officers, many of whom come from a law enforcement background, are specially trained to defuse situations and equipped to protect the safety of both Hy-Vee customers and employees. The officers have been through training designed by Hy-Vee retail security leaders alongside law enforcement partners.

“Hy-Vee has a strong history of doing anything for our customers, and these officers will be held to that same standard,” Hy-Vee President and COO Jeremy Gosch said. “These officers will help provide another layer of safety and security for our customers, and will work alongside our store employees to deliver the same helpful smiles and outstanding service everyone expects at their local store.”

For the past few months, stores across the United States — especially in large cities — have been terrorized by large crowds of people executing group robberies. Days ago, one such incident in Palm Beach, Florida, resulted in the theft of nearly $1 million in Hermes handbags.

Even worse, Harris County has seen over 150 murders by felons released by liberals

Law Enforcement Today reported in a 29 December 2021 article that over 150 murders have been committed over the past three years by felons released by Democrat judges and the Democrat District Attorney.

“Catch and release” Judges presently on the bench in Harris County have released more than 113 defendants charged with capital murder back onto Houston streets on bond, and more than 150 people have been murdered by accused criminals released on bond.

In Harris County, no fewer than 113 defendants charged with capital murder – have been inexplicably granted bond and released back onto our streets pending trial.

— FOX26Houston (@FOX26Houston) December 26, 2021

FOX26 reported that liberal judges have allowed more than 50,000 accused felons out of prison under liberal reforms.

The local news outlet poin ted out that capital murder is the most “egregious” offense in the Texas criminal code, which has a mandatory sentence of life imprisonment or the death penalty. The news outlet wrote:

“In all, more than 50,000 accused felons have benefited from the ‘catch and release’ philosophy of “criminal justice,” perpetrated by the current crop of democratic ‘reform’ judges.”

On the tech giants in Joe Biden’s America

Texas passes SB12, much to the consternation of liberals who want to continue to silence conservatives on social media

Texas moves to protect conservatives from tech giant viewpoint discrimination

The Texas Public Policy Action informs us of Texas SB 12, which would stop companies like Facebook and Twitter from blocking posts based on a political viewpoint.

Austin-CapitalSB 12 would prevent social media platforms with more than 100 million users in a calendar month from censoring a person’s viewpoint expressed in a social media post but would not prohibit the censoring of content that is prohibited, such as violent or overtly sexual content or in cases where federal law specifically allows websites and services to censor speech. This applies to Texas residents, users who do business in Texas and users who receive or share content on a social media platform in Texas.

SB 12 would require social media platforms to publicly disclose on their website and in a way easily accessible to the public, accurate information regarding its content management, data management, and business practices, including specific information regarding how they use, place, and target content and services.

Requires social media platforms to publish an acceptable use policy informing users of acceptable content, explaining the steps the social media platform will take to ensure content complies with the policy, and explains the means by which users can notify the platform of content that potentially violates the policy.

Requires social media platforms to publish a quarterly transparency report of the number of times they were alerted to illegal content or activity and their response. Provides process by which users can file complaint about content being removed and the responsibilities of the platform in rectifying the complaint.

The Attorney General may sue a social media platform for violating these terms.

(Read why Texas Public Policy Action supports SB12 at Texas Public Policy Action) points to possible flaws of Texas SB12 — all based on federalism

In their review of Texas SB12, points out some flaws in Texas SB12:

Political bias on social media is one of the biggest issues animating the political right these days, and thus many conservatives talk about doing something to prevent “Big Tech” censorship. Several Republican-controlled states are considering passing legislation designed to accomplish just that.

The Texas Senate, for instance, is poised to approve SB12, which ostensibly prohibits social media companies from restricting their users’ speech.

“We need to recognize in Texas, maybe particularly in Texas, we see that the First Amendment is under assault by the social media companies and that is not going to be tolerated in Texas,” said Republican Gov. Greg Abbott in support of the bill.

The First Amendment is not under assault by social media companies. On the contrary, the First Amendment defends the free speech rights of private entities—like social media companies—against restrictive government action, like this bill. It would be more accurate to say that the First Amendment is under assault by the Texas legislature. A private company deciding what kind of speech it allows on its platform is precisely the kind of thing the First Amendment protects from government interference.

If that were not enough, the bill has two massive flaws, one of which might render it entirely pointless.

First, the bill defines its terms very broadly: It would prohibit any large social media company (more than 100 million monthly users) from restricting content because of the expressed viewpoint. “An interactive computer service may not censor a user, a user’s expression, or a user’s ability to receive the expression of another person,” the bill reads.

Practically speaking, this could prohibit Facebook and Twitter from taking action against content that is harmful, abusive, or spammy. Facebook’s News Feed algorithm makes choices about what kind of content to prioritize, and the platform occasionally opts to limit the reach of some posts—conspiracy theories about the 2020 election, or COVID-19, for instance. The bill would appear to interfere with the day-to-day runnings of the site in very basic ways. It could even force social media sites to take away moderation options from users.

“YouTube and Facebook allow page managers to remove content posted on their community pages,” noted Steve DelBianco, president of the trade association NetChoice, in his comments about the bill. “This empowers content creators to curate their pages to suit community interests. However, platforms and websites might remove this capability, since it invites expensive litigation under SB 12.”

If that weren’t good enough reason to oppose the bill, it also contains a section that appears to render the entire thing obsolete: “This chapter does not prohibit an interactive computer service from censoring expression that the interactive computer service is specifically authorized to censor by federal law.”

Under a federal law known as Section 230, social media companies cannot be held liable for “any action voluntarily taken in good faith to restrict access to or availability of material that the provider or user considers to be obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable.” In other words, federal law already gives social media companies every right to restrict users’ content, and Texas’ bill—as written—bows to federal law.

(

Maybe it is time for states to start asserting their preeminence over the federal government. It was the states that created the federal government (not the other way around).

With all due deference to President Lincoln, we in Texas don’t like running a liberal ship into the ground — and that is just what New York, Massachusetts, Illinois, and Washington, D.C. seem intent on doing. Therefore, we conservative states need to chart another course and dare the demented people up North to try to hold us down.

Mike Lindell touts a new social media platform that will handle over a billion users

The Epoch Times reports that Mike Lindell, CEO and founder of MyPillow, has announced the formation of a social media platform.


The forthcoming social media website from MyPillow’s Mike Lindell will be able to handle more than a billion users, Lindell said this week.

“I believe it will handle upwards of a billion. If it doesn’t, we will get to that capacity. I don’t think that’s exaggerated, by any means,” Lindell told The Epoch Times.

“It’s going to be the safest, secure platform. I built it expecting to be attacked.”

The platform, dubbed Frank, has a landing page but isn’t operational yet.

Lindell told The Epoch Times’ affiliate NTD on March 11 that the website would be up and running within two weeks.

The current plan is to launch as soon as April 5, but no later than April 12.

“The only reason for the delay is, I actually added six more servers in another location. I really want redundancy, so I’ve got three different U.S. locations and another hidden one. So I’ve got—if anybody went out there to physically damage my stuff, I wanted a fourth location, so that was very important to me,” Lindell told The Epoch Times.

Frank is described as a mix of YouTube and Twitter. The core idea is free speech, according to Lindell, who was banned by Twitter in January for violations of the platform’s Civic Integrity Policy and has said he’s been harmed by actions from Google.

This allows us the opportunity to use our feet to vote rather than using the change of law

Just like when I moved to Parler, I will move to both Mike Lindell’s and President Trump’s new platforms. However, I think that (instead of using these platforms as supplements to Facebook and Twitter — the latter of which cut my followership by thousands before I quit) I will use these primarily.

Just to mock Facebook and Instagram, here is the Trump interview those platforms banned in Joe Biden’s America

Here is the video banned by Instagram and Facebook

Not only does the NYT buy ink by the barrel, they buy politicians

Corporate media legislation is “bait and switch to strangle conservative outlets”

Breitbart quotes Ken Blackwell as he outlines how the corporate media has worked with Democrat leaders to craft legislation that will drive out the competition.

Former Ohio state treasurer and secretary of state Ken Blackwell described a bill backed by corporate media giants currently making its way through Congress as “a bait-and-switch attempt that claims to help conservative news sources but would instead purge them from the marketplace of ideas.”

Blackwell took aim at the proposed legislation, known as the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act of 2019 (JCPA), in an op-ed in the American Thinker.

As Breitbart News’s Allum Bokhari reported, the JCPA is deceptively titled because instead of promoting “competition,” the bill in its current form would “cement the advantage of the establishment and corporate media at the expense of its competitors” by giving “Big Media companies a special exemption from antitrust law, allowing them to form a cartel that would, under normal circumstances, be illegal to create.”

“Furthermore, there is nothing in the bill that would prevent the bigger media companies from excluding smaller companies from the cartel,” Bokhari added. “If passed, there would be nothing to stop the formation of a cartel that includes CNN, NBC, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and other big companies, while excluding smaller competitors in the independent media — not to mention local newspapers. Such a cartel would secure favorable rates for the former while leaving the latter in the dust.”

Blackwell’s op-ed offers similar criticism of the bill. He explains that it would not only grant big media companies an exemption from federal antitrust laws, but it would also allow them to “operate in a coordinated fashion to negotiate prices that social media companies like Facebook would have to pay them to carry their content. It would ensure that these tech billionaires would have to direct some of their riches into content providers.”
