Piers Morgan begins his stint on Sky tonight in Australia with his pitiful interview with President Trump. President Trump was correct in calling Morgan a “fool” for not knowing the 2020 election was fraudulently stolen!
I am one week and a half from being seventy six and I have never seen a President treated so badly by the media as they do and have President Trump. When I was a boy my parents listened to a lot of anti-communist programs on the radio and boy, do we need those today! The present day media are not only leftist socialist leaning but qualify as full-blown communist! Yes, Communist!
Here is President Trump and Lara Trump discussing social media censorship, China, Joe Biden, the FAKE NEWS, and a potential 2024 run! https://www.brighteon.com/cb2538b7-286b-4583-bb73-e4e0d672f400
One HAS to question how long blogs like this one will have the freedom to share videos like this.
The twits at Twitter are at it again. At Twitter ‘The social media platform has no problem boasting about interfering in elections for the Left—but a big problem with people objecting that it was done. My latest in American Greatness:
They’re going to silence us all, eventually, if they can. On Saturday, the sanctimonious and hypocritical censors of Twitter came for Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft, radio host Wayne Allyn Root, and freedom activist Pamela Geller. Their crime? It appears to have been the heinous act of skepticism toward the official line, specifically, their refusal to accept at face value the official line about the 2020 election.
Root said: “I am in shock. It appears to be a permanent ban. Although I don’t know. Twitter never warned me. . . . And never sent any communication saying I’ve been suspended or banned. I simply tried to tweet yesterday afternoon and could not. But unlike a previous suspension . . . My followers suddenly said 0.”
What Twitter wrote to Geller made clear what was going on:
Your account, PamelaGeller has been suspended for violating the Twitter rules.
Violating our rules about election integrity. You may not use Twitter’s services for the purpose of manipulating or interfering in elections. This includes posting or sharing content that may suppress voter turnout or mislead people about when, or how to vote.
Note that if you attempt to evade a permanent suspension by creating new accounts, we will suspend your new accounts. If you wish to appeal this suspension, please contact our support team.
This is absurd from start to finish. Neither Pamela Geller nor Root nor Hoft did anything to “suppress voter turnout or mislead people about when, or how to vote.” Twitter apparently hasn’t even bothered to update its ban notice since before November 3. Nor did they do anything along the lines of “manipulating or interfering in elections.”
Still, there is no doubt that if Geller did take Twitter up on its magnanimous grant to her of a chance to appeal, the appeal would be denied. Twitter’s nameless, faceless wonks are judge, jury, and executioner, and no one can question their sagacity or righteousness of their decisions.
What Geller, Root, and Hoft did, of course, was simply report and highlight the many irregularities and unanswered questions surrounding the 2020 presidential election. Twitter, along with the other social media giants and the establishment media outlets, are labeling all questioning of the election as “lies” and are busy banning any suggestion that there was anything amiss about the election at all, without even bothering to explain all the issues. This is the way a guilty person who is trying to cover up his misdeeds acts, not the way a victor behaves when he knows he has won fair and square and is happy to set the record straight.
Meanwhile, these new bans came just two days after Time published an article titled, “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election.” In it, Time’s Molly Ball boasted of
a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information. They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it.
Not rigging the election, but fortifying it. Right. And how exactly does one “fortify” an election? From the looks of Ball’s article, by rigging it.’https://www.jihadwatch.org/2021/02/twitter-bans-three-more-dissenters?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=the_2021_02_15_jihad_watch_daily_digest&utm_term=2021-02-15
‘A hallmark of the Left, from the French revolutionaries to our sexual “devolutionaries,” is the persecution of Christians. After all, the government can’t be the people’s highest power if God is. And Joe Biden and Kamala Harris would embrace this dark tradition with vigor, warn observers.
In contrast, one of President Trump’s many unrecognized accomplishments is that he has stood up for religious liberty more than perhaps any other modern commander in chief. Just consider, points out the Federalist’s John Daniel Davidson, the White House’s proclamation commemorating the 850th anniversary of the martyrdom of Saint Thomas Becket, archbishop of Canterbury. Honored by both Anglicans and Catholics, he was murdered in 1170 A.D. by followers of King Henry II of England for refusing to make the church subservient to the state.
While you can read the whole proclamation here, consider the following three quotations and see if you can figure out which ones were formulated by Founding Fathers.
- “Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains.”
- “A society without religion cannot prosper. A nation without faith cannot endure — because justice, goodness, and peace cannot prevail without the grace of God.”
- “The only foundation for … a republic is to be laid in Religion.”
The first and last are from, respectively, founders Patrick Henry and Benjamin Rush; the second is from President Trump’s White House — and it’s hardly out of place.
It is striking, though. When Donald Trump sought the presidency, no one mistook the famous billionaire playboy for a desert mystic (and still wouldn’t). Yet we now have to “acknowledge how rare it has been to have, in President Trump, a chief executive who seems honestly to care about religious liberty and the rights of conscience,” writes Davidson.
“At the same time, it’s unnerving to think how diametrically opposed to this view the incoming Biden administration will be,” he also laments. “Although he professes to be Catholic, Biden has already indicated he will once again target religious groups like the Little Sisters of the Poor, as the Obama administration did, in an attempt to force such religious orders to participate in state-funded abortion.”
“And Biden’s soon-to-be vice president, Kamala Harris, is an open anti-Catholic bigot. She infamously imposed an unconstitutional religious test on a nominee for the federal bench in 2018,” Davidson continues. “When Brian Buescher was nominated as a District Court judge, Harris inveighed against him for being a member of the Knights of Columbus, asking, ‘Were you aware that the Knights of Columbus opposed a woman’s right to choose when you joined the organization?’” (To choose what? What clothes to wear or food to eat?)
Harris also “has a long history of attacks on Catholic moral teaching, including her assault on the rights of David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress, which had exposed the illegal trafficking of organs from aborted children by Planned Parenthood,” relates WND.com.
Moreover, “she supported a law, later struck down by the Supreme Court, that attacked pro-life pregnancy centers,” the site continues.
Furthermore, Harris co-sponsored “the Orwellian-named ‘Equality Act,’ which would force Catholic hospitals to perform gender transition surgeries and Catholic schools to embrace transgender ideology in their sports programs, among other violations of religious liberty,” Davidson also informs. “Biden, too, has expressed his support for the act.”
Of course, none of us will end up like St. Becket anytime too soon. We won’t be thrown to the lions, a fate befalling some Christians in the Roman Empire, or suffer a more modern martyrdom as witnessed in the USSR yesterday or China today — again, not anytime too soon. We won’t even in the near future see our leftists try to alter the calendar so as to eliminate the Lord’s Day, as the French revolutionaries did.
Instead, pursued is the Cold War-era, Hungarian Marxist model: You can be Christian or you can be successful.
But you can’t be both.
Thus have we witnessed governments punish bakers, florists, photographers, and other businessmen for not servicing so-called “same sex” weddings; and propose to deny Christian schools accreditation and compel Christian doctors to perform prenatal infanticide, among other efforts.
A practical reason for this attack on Christianity is, as stated in my first paragraph, that power-mongers want the state they control and not God to be citizens’ highest power; they want their laws, not Divine ones, preeminent. But this isn’t the only reason.
Much of what man does is governed by emotion, and militant-secularists’ hatred for Christianity cannot be understood without grasping the passions animating their dark aims.
Though we’re all sinners, hardened leftists aren’t just vice-ridden people: They’re people so married to vice they’ve no intention of relinquishing it — and emotionally they need to justify it. Thus, the last thing they want prevailing in civilization is an absolute and universal standard for morality (such as the one Christianity upholds) dictating that their sins really are sins, as opposed to mere “lifestyle choices.” No one likes having his bubble burst, you see.
So because Christianity condemns their dark “choices,” they condemn Christianity. If Christianity is right, they’re wrong; if it reigns, they’re rejected; if it wins hearts, they lose votes; if society is painted an ethereal white, their darkness stands out, an unholy sight screaming for purgation.
Speaking of which, the Bible asks, rhetorically, what “fellowship hath light with darkness”? None. This is why hatred isn’t the only reason leftists seek to force Christians to violate their faith, though it’s one reason.
Rather, it’s somewhat akin to why brutal Third World rebels would often force boy soldiers to shoot their parents. Make a person commit grave sin, against his Father — make him betray his basic moral foundation — and he can be disconnected from all that’s good. He may feel as if his former attachments are irrevocably severed and perhaps, thinking he’s already damned, may surrender and dance with the demons.
Boy soldiers are an extreme example, of course. But compelling Christians to violate their principles with action can detach them from their principles — and make them more likely to accept, or at least tolerate, yours. And when this is effected widely and those principles appear absent enough societally to seem like preferences, and the government’s “principles” are legislated and enforced, well, the state can more easily play god.
The good news is that we don’t have to play worshipper of the state. We can instead, as with Becket, say that “God is the supreme ruler, above Kings,” and “we ought to obey God rather than men,” as Davidson quotes it.
And on a practical note, this resistance becomes far easier if we “all hang together” so we won’t “all hang separately.” Ergo, some faith-driven nullification is in order — but that’s an article for a different day.’https://thenewamerican.com/the-state-as-god-expect-biden-harris-to-go-roman-on-christianity/
This green energy deal is simply the pagan Gaia religion. Guess who they want to win?
However, ‘In a refreshingly honest article in the Boston Review, David McDermott Hughes confirms something that we energy evangelists have been saying for some time: Environmentalists do not simply want people to transition to “green energy,” they want humanity put on energy rationing, for the good of the planet. Now, apparently, they’ve also decided that we need to add intermittent fasting to our energy diet because, gosh darnit, electricity in developed countries like the United States is just too darn reliable for our own good! It needs to go out once in a while, or, well, the planet is doomed.
According to Hughes, “For those seriously concerned about climate change, the inverse—the demand for electrical continuity—may be the real problem.” Yes, you read that right, the desire to have electricity available 24/7 is the cause of our global climate catastrophe, and we need to learn to live with intermittent energy like the happy campers of Zimbabwe and Puerto Rico which “provide models for what we might call pause-full electricity.”
And who is first on the new electricity diet? Why, you are, you single-family home-dwelling environmental heretic. Hughes explains that “…each household demanding continuous electricity marginally exacerbates the climate crisis. Perhaps, then, it is critical that we not store energy for these houses. At least, we should not do so in a way that hobbles the transition away from fossil fuels. We ought to consider waiting a few years for storage—enduring much more than six hours of downtime every year—for the sake of transitioning more rapidly away from fossil fuels.”
Surely you can handle a “few years” of intermittent blackouts and brownouts, right, suburbanites?
This energy-rationing agenda has been hidden, heretofore, by a huge raft of bogus promises that would make the switch to renewables easy. Batteries, we were told, will adapt so fast that we can go ahead and just build out wind and solar power, while letting conventional power plants wither and die, and everybody will have their cake and eat it too! Unfortunately, the reality of battery storage limitations is just too obvious to people who see, day in and day out, the reality of batteries: they aren’t getting that much stronger over time. As Mark Mills, of the Manhattan Institute points out (and do read the whole thing!):
About 60 pounds of batteries are needed to store the energy equivalent of one pound of hydrocarbons.
At least 100 pounds of materials are mined, moved and processed for every pound of battery fabricated.
Storing the energy equivalent of one barrel of oil, which weighs 300 pounds, requires 20,000 pounds of Tesla batteries ($200,000 worth).
Carrying the energy equivalent of the aviation fuel used by an aircraft flying to Asia would require $60 million worth of Tesla-type batteries weighing five times more than that aircraft.
And even Hughes now admits that, well, making batteries is environmentally destructive, and environmentalists don’t want you doing that, even if you can. After all, batteries are just not woke:
Lithium-ion batteries are moving into position to overcome that constraint, but they create problems of their own. Like most form of mining, lithium extraction produces toxins—imposed, on this case, on indigenous down-winders in Chile. Also like mining, the lithium trade concentrates power and wealth in the hands of few, corporations. Sometimes called “bottlenecking,” this process converts a resource too plentiful for profit—like sunlight—into a scarce and lucrative commodity. Not even environmental savior Elon Musk is safe from abuse, because, it seems, Tesla “seems on track to gain a controlling share of any smart grid connected to electric vehicles; its Powerwall battery is out-competing less toxic technologies, and it could eventually dovetail with software known as “demand response.”
Oh My God. You mean, Elon Musk is a – gasp – businessman? Perish forbid!
The moral of this story is, when the “green” energy, “green economy,” “green new deal” types tell you that all they really want is for you to have “greener” energy, what they mean is that they want you to have less. Less quantity, less reliability, less affordability, and less consumer flexibility. And you can take that to the ballot box.’https://papundits.wordpress.com/2020/11/02/reliable-electricity-bah-humbug/
RUSH Limbaugh said ‘That’s right, my friends! Joe Biden addressed a record crowd of 365 cars in Atlanta yesterday, while trying to project energy by going to where FDR went to die. That’s your Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, going to where FDR went to die. “It’s gonna be a dark winter,” but at least a record number of cars showed up.
You know, Warm Springs, Georgia, is where FDR went to die — Franklin Delano Roosevelt, for those of you who may not know who FDR is. He was a president married to Eleanor Roosevelt, who Hillary Clinton talks to at night, one ghost to another. (interruption) No, Hillary says she does! I’m not making it up.
So, this is where Biden addressed a record crowd: “365 cars easily made it the largest event of the campaign for Biden.” You believe that: 365 cars is the biggest rally of his campaign, and this is the guy that’s the so-far-away frontrunner we can’t see who’s in second place? Record crowd, 365 cars in Atlanta, “the largest event of the campaign” for Plugs.
You know, 365 cars, that wouldn’t even make a respectable Trump caravan. Seventy-five thousand cars rallied for President Trump in Miami last week. By the way, aren’t Biden’s car rally’s attendees, by definition, honkers? That’s what they do: They honk their horns instead of applaud! I thought that was the funniest thing when I was watching Obama last weekend.’https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2020/10/28/__trashed-3/
Election 2020 is almost HERE!
‘”No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and virtue is preserved. On the contrary, when people are universally ignorant, and debauched in their manners, they will sink under their own weight without the aid of foreign invaders.” —Samuel Adams (1775)’
‘If not for Iowa’s distinction as holder of the nation’s first primary on 3 February, the latest Demo debate in Des Moines wouldn’t matter much. Iowa’s 3.1 million residents put it 30th in population, and the Hawkeye State suffers from the undue influence of leftists from nearby Chicago, who treat the eastern part of the state like a dude-ranch suburb.
The Iowa primary is actually composed of secret closed caucuses promising a prize of 49 delegates, of which 41 are pledged, so all eyes are on Iowa until its caucuses conclude.
Last night was the seventh dull debate, but the first of the election year. It was hosted by the Democrat Party’s public-relations firm, CNN. Participants included frontrunners Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Pete Buttigieg, along with outliers Amy Klobuchar and billionaire leftist Tom Steyer.
That’s a large field of candidates given how close we are to voting in Iowa and New Hampshire, and it reflects both the lack of unity and strength within the Democrat Party. It’s now a uniformly white field of candidates after New Jersey Sen. Cory “Spartacus” Booker dropped out — except, of course, for “Honest Injun” Warren, who has been certified 1/1024th Cherokee or some other indigenous flavor.
Noticeably absent from the “oh so important” Iowa Demo debate was Michael Bloomberg, the mega-billionaire former nanny-state New York City mayor whose political platform is laughably focused on his abjectly hypocritical concern for “income inequality” and his dangerous gun-confiscation agenda.
In order to qualify for the debate, candidates had to first demonstrate broad-based funding support from 225,000 unique donors (at least 1,000 of whom had to be from each of 20 states). Second, they had to meet popular political polling thresholds.
Bloomberg made the polling thresholds (5th place at 5.8%), but he’s intentionally not soliciting individual donations. However, his ad buys now total more than $200 million, almost as much as the rest of the Democrat field’s combined $222 million — effectively doubling their collective strategy to defeat Donald Trump.
Fact is, Bloomberg had no intention of being on the debate stage with his fellow leftists, because that is not his objective.
The stage podium Bloomberg wants is the big one at the Demo convention in July, where he is betting that it will be tough for any of the candidates to win a majority of the party’s delegates. That will enable him to broker a path not for his own nomination but more likely for his preferred candidate. That brokering will take place behind the scenes.
And given Bloomberg’s $52 billion net worth, he will have an outsized influence on which candidate ultimately wins the nomination. After the convention he has vowed to spend hundreds of millions more on advertising to defeat Trump.
Sidebar: This is yet another example of why I believe a candidate should not be able to make limitless donations to their own campaign or on behalf of others (buy the office). They should be subject to the same limits imposed on every other American — $2,800 in a primary and general election.
Who, then, will win Bloomberg’s convention favor and affection?
Biden’s views align most closely to those of Bloomberg, and he is the “establishment candidate.” Thus, he is biding his time as the mainstream Demo favorite, pacing his campaign accordingly and benefiting from a mainstream media that seems shockingly disinterested in the fact that Biden is virtually non compos mentis.
On the other hand, Bernie Sanders is surging in the polls, and the 78-year-old Vermont socialist is leading in Iowa and California, while tied for the top post in Nevada and New Hampshire. Notably, he’s also surging in fundraising, having raised more than $34 million last quarter, compared to Buttigieg’s $25 million, Biden’s $23 million, and Warren’s $21 million. As I warned a year ago, “Take Sanders’s 2020 Campaign Seriously and Literally.”
Democrat Party poobahs are certainly taking him seriously, and they’re concerned about a repeat of 2016, when Hillary Clinton and the DNC conspired to sandbag Sanders in order to secure the nomination for her. The end result of their malfeasance was, of course, a shocking Electoral College victory for Donald Trump and the sudden onset of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
The “Sanders Surge” is thus creating a lot of heartburn for the Demos, who know that his nomination could be “an epic nightmare for them.”
I believe Bloomberg is positioning himself as an insurance policy against Sanders’s nomination.
Warren is doing her best to move Sanders out of the way, and their dustup will benefit Biden.
Moreover, in the RealClearPolitics polling average (the poll to watch), Biden has a substantial national lead over Sanders (27% to 19%) and has marginal leads over Sanders in both Iowa and New Hampshire.
I profiled the threat he and his club of wealthy leftists pose to Liberty in a column two years ago: “The Archenemies of Liberty — Soros, Steyer, Bezos, and Bloomberg,” noting that this megalomaniac has “an insatiable narcissistic quest for power, including centralized government power.” Typical of rich leftists, he does not want to play by the rules, just dictate the rules for others.
Whomever Bloomberg and his sidekick Tom Steyer back at the convention, that nominee will be beholden to them and most certainly will comply with their wishes. We call this arrangement a “quid pro quo.”
And on that note, the Demos’ “urgent” articles of impeachment, which were held hostage by Nancy Pelosi for more than a month, are on the way over to the Senate this week.
Some are suggesting that Pelosi’s delay was intended to help Biden’s candidacy, because now Sanders and Warren will be distracted by their obligatory attendance at the Senate impeachment trial just ahead of the early primaries. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said: “This is the dirty little secret that nobody is talking about, why the speaker held these papers. … This benefits Joe Biden. This harms Sanders, who … will be stuck in a [Senate] chair” instead of out campaigning.
Shades of the 2016 Sanders sandbagging…
In response, Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff declared, “Impeachment has nothing to do with politics or the presidential race.” Seriously, that is the best reply he could script. (Big Lie playbook rules: When trying to deflect from the truth, always leave the denial to a cutout at least two steps removed from the originator of the lie!)
Moving forward, Bloomberg will also be noticeably absent from the unending flood of upcoming Demo debates: 7 February in New Hampshire, 19 February in Nevada, and 25 February in South Carolina. Again, he’d rather buy ads than engage in debates.
Finally, while I’m neither a gambler nor a prognosticating political pretender, if I was, I would suggest you keep your eye on this potential combo ticket: Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. I know, crazy, right? I think Biden will be Bloomberg’s water boy, and he’ll have to go younger and non-white in order to abide by his party’s obsessions with race and identity. Booker would be another option, but I suspect Biden’s advisers will insist he go female, and Harris is that default.
Of course, in the unlikely event that Bernie survives the slings and arrows of the DNC, he could choose metrosexual Beto O’Rourke, who can pass as both female and Mexican.’ https://patriotpost.us/alexander/67925-bloombergs-brokered-demo-convention-gambit-2020-01-15
