WaPo’s Jennifer Rubin celebrates America Last

So wonderful to see the true colours of the left.

Recall WaPo opinion writer, Jennifer Rubin, demanded that Walter Reed Hospital be defunded after Trump convalesced there.

What makes her think her opinion is valid in any context about the outgoing administration given the chronic Trump Derangement Syndrome she suffers from? The self-belief in her comments are worthy of addition to the DSM-VI.

This was her other tweet highlighting the utter impartiality in her own mind.

Journalism has been dead for the last 4 years. It will be a rotting corpse for the next 4.

We await all the mainstream media puff pieces on all the America Last policies that Biden will introduce – Rejoin Paris, re-sign a deal with Iran, path the citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants, $15min wages etc – as good for the country.

Media already holding new administration to account

While the mainstream media released starving lions every time a Trump administration official was interviewed, just look at the fluffy miniature poodles set upon VP-elect Kamala Harris in this catch up.

Surely America has been waiting to know more about Harris’ sneakers than what she will do with her vote in the hung Senate!

Can Trump be impeached after he leaves office?

According to J. Michael Luttig, a former judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit,

The Constitution itself answers this question clearly: No, he cannot be. Once Trump’s term ends on Jan. 20, Congress loses its constitutional authority to continue impeachment proceedings against him — even if the House has already approved articles of impeachment.

Therefore, if the House of Representatives were to impeach the president before he leaves office, the Senate could not thereafter convict the former president and disqualify him under the Constitution from future public office.”

One wonders whether Speaker Pelosi might show the American people the same urgency with issues that actually matter to them. Is this a preview of the “servant’s heart” mentality Arnie Schwarzenegger spoke of in his woke video this week?

At the very least she didn’t wait for collectors item pens with her signature embossed to arrive like she did at the time of the first impeachment.

The Dems have only one wish for a successful impeachment – to guarantee they never have to contend with someone with 74m supporters.

Phew, Glad Twitter cleared that up!

Oh, the irony!

Twitter’s public policy page has doth protested Ugandan ISPs blocking social media ahead of an election.

Didn’t Twitter actively engage in suppressing the NY Post’s expose of Hunter Biden‘s laptop ahead of the US presidential election?

Thank God we have Twitter defending the free speech & human rights of Ugandans before Americans.

So powerful have Big Tech companies become that they don’t even require a phone call from politicians to censor the opposition. It is decided by their own commissars.

Glad we cleared that up. Time for the UN to appoint Twitter to the chair of the Human Rights Commission without delay. Twitter should nominate Kathy Griffin given her unwavering balance.

PGA announces 2022 switch to Pyongyang GC from Trump National

The Professional Golfers Association (PGA) of America has decided to sever ties with President Donald Trump after voting to take the PGA Championship event from his Bedminster, New Jersey golf course, Trump National in 2022.

PGA CEO Seth Waugh said, “We find ourselves in a political situation not of our making…We’re fiduciaries for our members, for the game, for our mission and for our brand. And how do we best protect that? Our feeling was given the tragic events of Wednesday that we could no longer hold it at Bedminster. The damage could have been irreparable. The only real course of action was to leave.”

Unconfirmed sources say that the front runner to replace the 2022 event could be the Pyongyang Golf Course in North Korea.

The PGA is believed to have received tacit approval from Big Tech companies to move forward with the event only if Kim Jong-un promises not to invite Trump as his guest. The rationale is believed to be because Kim is Trump’s last friend on earth. Being snubbed by the North Korean dictator is understood to be the best way for the PGA to get the maximum woke points necessary to prove they’ve moved heaven and earth to appease the cancel culture mob and protect their brand.

Kim was reported to have told CEO Waugh, “how can you humiliate Trump if he is no longer able to get my tweets?” Sources close to Twitter have confirmed that Jack Dorsey is considering reinstating Trump’s account for 6 hours as an act of compassion and to show conservatives that the platform is an advocate for free speech.

A senior Antifa spokesman, Lance Brick, said that he was surprised to hear of the PGA move as none of his members play golf. Brick said, “Look, none of us really like golf so the PGA was never on our radar. Thanks to the CEO’s public statement we have realised we didn’t know what we didn’t know. After an emergency plenary session, we have decided to refocus our energies on looting golf pro shops and demanding the PGA reveal which golf courses are steeped in the white patriarchy and burn those clubhouses to the ground, lest we turn our rage on them.”

Acolytes in the mainstream media have reportedly welcomed the discussions, noting potential offsite opportunities with North Korean state media to improve their delivery back at home.

Didn’t Biden say he wanted to heal the nation?

Actions speak louder than words. Surely President-elect Joe Biden could have chosen to be less divisive. Hardly the words of someone who has promised to heal the nation and “build back better.

Then again Biden served under the most divisive president in American history.

Why hasn’t Twitter issued a fact check against Biden’s tweet?

Apart from the reality that many BLM protestors have included scores of woke white liberals, Biden is effectively disparaging the Capitol Police & National Guard as a bunch of trigger happy white supremacists who would have gone out of their way to open fire and massacre the perpetrators for sport had they been black. What a disgrace.

For the avoidance of doubt:

41% of the Capitol Police are non-white. 54% of the civilian staff of the USCP are non-white. They are big on diversity too.

America’s cultural revolution and the long march back to equality

Within 48 hours of the confirmation of the electoral votes, unelected tech giants displayed once again how they can dictate terms to the democratically elected leader of the free world and his followers.

The First Amendment might as well have been written in invisible ink.

Now other platforms are following suit, laying the groundwork to ensure directly/indirectly there will be little effort to help unite the country by restricting/cancelling access to conservative sites.

Who is inciting who exactly?

Three quotes to reflect on before we begin:

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it

The one who does not remember history is bound to live through it again,”

and

History is written by victors.

The left is in raptures over Trump’s expulsion from Twitter. Of course they have no issues with cancelling those who don’t share their ideological views. Yet if you question their rights to free speech, hell hath no fury. After all everything that parses their fingertips is good, clean and wholesome. If you say otherwise you’ll be cancelled. Got it?

Yes, the argument will be made that privately run social media companies have the right to police those who may damage site integrity and promote the collective safety of subscribers. Have they been asleep at the wheel for the last 4 years? Even terrorists have been allowed to tweet without sanction.

The problem is that the unelected and unqualified overseers making those determinations to suspend others have shown time and time again they back the side not the principle. OJ Simpson on justice anyone?

A great example is Twitter’s Head of Site Integrity, Yoel Roth (@yoyoel), an avid anti-Trumper. Several days after the 2016 election he proudly tweeted, “I’m just saying, we fly over those states that voted for a racist tangerine for a reason.” We should sleep soundly at night that he also referred to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as “a personality-free bag of farts.” Surely there is no risk of conservative bias with the integrity team at Twitter…sleep soundly!

Black conservative Candace Owens proved just how biased Twitter is when she was suspended for replacing the word ‘white’ with ‘black’ and ‘Jewish.’ She proved the point with respect to the incendiary tweets made by the NYT’s then latest recruit, Sarah Jeong. Never let racism get in the way of the decision making process!

Facebook recently threatened to de-platform conservative comedian JP Sears for satire.

Now, Google has decided to remove conservative forum, Parler, from its Android store presumably just because Trump has endorsed it. So will every single thing that he has supported be shutdown or targeted? Watch out Goya!

Will Apple join the cultural revolution? Are all Parler users foaming at the mouth Trump cultists? Or do some simply like to entertain a wider spectrum of opinions?

Is this merely targeted anti-competitive behaviour? A secondary boycott? Has Parler actually committed any crime? Has Google been unethically marshaling the content and traffic of another private company to form the determination that it needs to be publicly sacrificed? Would it help to appoint a Google overseer to sit on the board of Parler, like Chinese corporates are now forced to accommodate? Will Rumble be the next conservative site to be axed from Android?

Can’t the free market determine whether Parler has a right to exist rather than a select few politburo officials from Google?

We can be sure that if Parler wasn’t experiencing the explosive growth it has had to date, Google would not have seen a need to expunge the threat. Alas too many wanted to seek an alternative platform to exchange ideas. It’s day one, year zero. Black is white. War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Got it?

One has to question the legal basis for allowing a hateful and venomous platform like Twitter to function on Google Android but an upstart alternative – which couldn’t hold a flame to the incumbent – needs to be taken out?

Is this the type of healing we’ve been promised by the incoming administration? Restore unity by sitting idly by and allowing the media to silence those that disagree with them?

What better way for Biden to stamp his leadership credentials on uniting a fractured nation than stating how important the 1st Amendment is for all Americans.

But why bother? The tech giants are firmly on his side. After the last 4 years, it is high time to make sure that a monster of their own creation never upsets the political apple cart ever again. We await the glowing support of the climate change agenda, Paris, WHO, discrimination-driven racial equity and the benefits of allowing a path to citizenship or 11 million illegal immigrants.

It does not matter that Trump recently tweeted a video to his followers to go home peacefully and respect law and order. That was deemed incendiary and subsequently blocked. Don’t believe your lying eyes because we will be told what we can and can’t consume. Obviously we aren’t capable of thinking for ourselves.

Clearly to Jack Dorsey’s mob, it was imperative to prevent any sensible commentary by Trump from seeing the light of day. We wouldn’t want anything to challenge the narrative. The tech giant had to ensure that he was portrayed in the worst possible light before cancellation. No right of reply. Voltaire would be rolling in his grave.

We don’t deny Trump has said many silly things over his term but compared to some of the bile that has never faced sanction, it is laughable.

We fear that such moves will only fan the flames of division.

It seems these platforms want to proactively create an atmosphere that allows for the incoming administration to clamp down even harder on supposed enemies of the state. What better way than to douse their opponents in high octane fuel while carelessly playing with matches?

We are always amazed that more haven’t seen the TED talk by a black musician, Daryl Davis, who befriended the KKK by simply ‘listening‘ to them. That was all it took to get so many to hand in their robes.

Note the word “listen.”

Sadly, social media platforms have long drowned out reasoned debate well before the commissars found the need to jail dissidents with sanctimonious edicts.

This is a dangerous precedent being set. By muzzling a country that is built on a constitution that enshrines free speech, it is playing with fire. We ain’t seen nothing yet. America will be decisively cut in two.

In closing we’ve long argued that Trump pulled the scab off the festering wound of deep seated division. He was the catalyst. Not the cause. With the incoming administration, failure to address the growing power of big tech will lead to more people taking the law into their own hands.

We don’t condone unlawful behaviour but will be the least bit surprised if those who feel the most marginalized think they’ve nothing to lose.

If we thought 2020 was a horrible year, 2021 could well destroy that myth but thanks to social media you’ll only be able to view the world through the rose tinted glasses of willfully dishonest propagandists.

The social media giants will do well to remember that “before setting out on revenge, first dig two graves.”

JP Sears on the storming of the Capitol

Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. JP Sears takes apart the media narrative on the storming of the Capitol with sarcasm.

Clowns to the bitter end

The Party of Unity has decided it wants to move to impeach Trump or declare the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office.

Despite Trump saying he’ll ensure a transfer of power on Inauguration Day, the Democrats revealed their true colours again. They know neither is achievable but will stage the theatrics anyway for posterity to say they did their best to dump Trump.

Vying for the title of world’s biggest hypocrite, Speaker Pelosi said, “The president of the United States incited an armed insurrection against America…The gleeful desecration of the U.S. Capitol, which is the temple of our American democracy and the violence targeting Congress are horrors that will forever stain our nation’s history.

We’ve already said our piece on the despicable act. Where was Pelosi when so many anti-Kavanaugh protestors stormed the Capitol?

Wasn’t it Democratic Rep Maxine Waters who openly incited people to attack members of Trump’s administration?

Wasn’t it Pelosi who turned a blind eye to all the destruction left in the wake of BLM protests by saying “people will do what they will do“?

Wasn’t it Democrat Rep AOC encouraging the drawing up of a blacklist of those who served Trump in order to publicly dox them?

In any event, with two weeks to go, why put America through yet more nonsense? If anyone is in more danger of failing to comply with the mental instability edicts of the 25th Amendment, it is Nancy Pelosi.

Welcome to a preview of the kind of juvenile antics before Biden has even taken office. We doubt America voted for more of this nonsense.

Hunting cowards and hypocrites on Capitol Hill

Violence of any kind is reprehensible, regardless of who commits it. That goes without saying. Today’s actions by Trump supporters inside the halls of Congress in DC were an utter disgrace. Unforgivable. Period.

Those Trump supporters who overestimated their personal agency and organizational ability by storming Capitol Hill should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law should it be proven they individually committed actual crimes.

They don’t represent the majority of 74m Trump voters anymore than BLM/Antifa protestors are cookie cutter role models for the 80m+ who cast their ballots for Biden. Let’s be real here.

The optics today were perfect for the mainstream media. Forget objectivity. Derangement syndrome turbocharged.

They relished the opportunity to put another coat of varnish on the anti-Trump narrative, labeling the relatively small group of violent perpetrators as a percentage of the total assembled as ‘white supremacists’. Not all Trump supporters in DC had any intention of creating mayhem. Still that was the media message.

How ironic that the media took a completely different view over the plethora of assaults, harassment, widespread looting, arson, destruction of private/public property and murder as “mostly peaceful” protests. Why didn’t the media properly report on the raft of activism displayed by local CAs and DAs pushing their ideology instead of the law when prosecuting police acting within the rules? Crickets. The hypocrisy is astounding.

Where were the media outlets calling out Speaker Pelosi for dismissing the BLM violence as “people will do what they do!” as government buildings across multiple cities were defaced and torched? How quaint that after months of Democrats calling to defund the police are among their most ardent backers. The same jack-booted National Guard thugs have also become heroes of the left all of a sudden. Who knew?

None of Trump’s tweets today were incendiary to the point of creating a national security issue. Still, we never knew that Jack Dorsey had become the self-appointed guardian of American democracy and public safety?!

Despite Trump publicly calling for calm, the media has linked the violence to his consistent calls that he (and his base) were robbed of victory, despite the legal processes rejecting almost all of the claims made. If we learnt anything from the past four years, multiple ‘independent’ agencies like the FBI have proven that they too have deep political biases. After all, what former FBI director doesn’t wear a Biden-Harris t-shirt and thrust a mug with the same slogan on a Zoom call?

Admittedly Trump’s words were unhelpful to say the least. He tweeted, “These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with love & in peace. Remember this day forever!

After VP Pence said he was not going to upset the constitution today, Trump was quick to criticize his confidant. A ridiculous notion to suggest he would have done otherwise. Stupid Trump, although not surprising.

Alas Trump’s glass jaw has always been his fatal weak point. His actions since the 2020 election have pretty much given the media all the ammo they need to ensure none of the positives of his 4 years – peace deals, pushing NATO to meet commitments, leaving the Paris Accord, record low unemployment for minorities and women, highest % growth in net assets for the Bottom 50% in decades, energy independence, 12,500 new factories returning from abroad, manufacturing jobs etc – will be remembered. His temperament on Twitter has been an own-goal of sorts.

Still, what strikes us are actions of the completely spineless social media firms like Twitter. Pre-election they held back on attacking Trump too far for fear he might look to rip up Section 230 which currently grants them immunity. Despite the growing ‘editorial’ control these platforms illegally exert over free speech they disagree with, they have decided to go full attack mode on Trump looking for any excuse to ban his account because they now know there will be no consequences for doing so. The left is cheering the opportunity to muzzle him for good. The social media giants are still cowards. Alas, more powerful and even more sinister. 

We have said for years that the media could have stopped their deranged 24-7 free coverage of Trump at any time. They could have removed his primetime exposure and deprived him of what he craved most – attention. Yet they chose to attack him on a daily basis and run fabricated stories on a loop because it was good for their ratings. Now he’s two weeks from being kicked out of office, they are doing what they can to sink the boot in. Be damned about accurately reporting what is going on.

If the MSM can further fan the flames through their biased coverage by focusing on a handful of mindless fools lashing out, they can meet the prime objective of creating even more division to allow President-elect Joe Biden to be painted as the great uniter and healer after he is inaugurated. Pfffft. What a joke.

Do they honestly believe a four year relentless attack on the legitimacy of his presidency will be forgiven by continuing to rub the noses of his supporters in more sensationalist media feces? Trump supporters aren’t a monolith. 

What transpired today was ugly. No doubt about it.

Let’s not forget why we are here. As much as he has been maligned for being the great divider in chief, the fact is that Trump merely pulled the scab off what had been festering for decades under career politicians on both sides of the political divide. Those who brazenly robbed their constituents blind through cozying up to lobbyists and billionaire elites. He was the man the little battler hoped would put a stop to it. His lack of political correctness was a breath of fresh air. The incumbents hated it.

Unfortunately as talented a mud wrestler as Trump was, he never possessed the sinister political abilities to outmanoeuvre his rivals and keep control. Now the forgotten ones fear the worst. They truly believe – rightly or wrongly – they’ll be left behind again. Never mind the ructions created by COVID. All they need to do is listen to the radical agenda which has been proposed by the hard left of the party. They don’t want to increasingly rely on government. They want opportunity. An even playing field. 

The political class gave birth to Trump, not the other way around. Now that they are back under control in all three areas – House of Reps, Senate and White House – don’t be surprised to see the unrest continue.

We pray for a peaceful outcome from all of this unnecessary violence but don’t bet on it when the media platforms are hell bent on creating even more chaos to ensure that he and his followers are humiliated beyond recognition. Still Trump could help stem the misleading reports if he stopped treating his final days like a reality TV show.

That doesn’t condone bad behaviour or absolve anyone of personal responsibility/accountability but at the very least the media could be doing way more to quell the tension. But why, paraphrasing Hillary Clinton, would they let a good crisis go to waste? Best stick to the age old motto – “if it bleeds, it leads!”

Forget unity. The division is now a fait accompli. With globalists back in charge, Joe Sixpack has nothing to lose. It will never excuse violence but we fear civil unrest is where we are headed. Amplify that trouble should the incoming administration seek to prosecute Trump. That would be a bridge too far. However, should he be guilty of any crimes, the law should always come first on principle. Same applies to any supporter who thinks the rules don’t apply to them.
