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.”

Votes of War?

The recent US election has thrown up every conceivable conspiracy theory with respect to illegitimate activity. Fake ballots. Dead people. Ballots hidden under tables. Republican observers sent home while ballot counts continued in the wee hours of the morning. Rigged voting machines….now counterfeit ballots printed and shipped from China?

So it appears that in the process of shredding ballots, several boxes were left behind. Patrick Byrne, Founder of OverStock said the unshredded ballots were confirmed to be counterfeit. More disturbingly, a receipt for shipping from China printed in Chinese was found on the side of the boxes.

Another wild conspiracy? If not so, wouldn’t such direct election meddling by a foreign power constitute thorough investigation? If proven true, such an act would be deemed an act of war, no?

Where is the media coverage? Of course it is nowhere to be found.

They were only too happy making Watergate + alpha conspiracy theories based on a selective edit of Trump’s call with Georgia’s Secretary of State Raffensperger. If Trump was truly wanting to cheat, why would he request “the truth” during the call as the best outcome for all and end the leaked tape with “thank you” and a mutual agreement to have their respective attorneys touch base at a later date? Never let the truth get in the way of a good story. Alas, 99.9% of people won’t bother to listen to the hour long tape and accept the deliberate misleading reporting by left wing media outlets. Where have we seen this before?

Typical.

If politicians were surgeons you’d never ask them to operate on you

And so the path to globalism marches on.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry will be the new climate envoy in a Biden administration, assuming the high probability he takes office in this still contested election.

Expect more blovating nonsense on climate change to satiate salivating crony capitalists. If COVID doesn’t kill you, climate change will! Got that, peasant?

Kerry is another career politician. He is the man who said peace in the Middle East was impossible. 3 peace deals later under a different administration and how stupid does he look? So should we believe his pontificating around climate change? Of course not.

Seriously, if politicians were surgeons there is no way you would ask them to operate on you given a glance at their win/loss ratio. Yet, Kerry will be afforded all of the media puff pieces on how he’ll be pivotal to saving us all despite reading geopolitics so poorly.

We await the grandiose statements about how close to doom we are. We await more nonsense around the Paris Accords – which grants China the ability to pollute as it pleases til 2030 – while the rest of us tip into the UN jar to misallocate resources for political favours.

You have to hand it to the political class. Await slower growth, higher electricity prices and more inefficiency which will end up in more debt fueled big government.

We’ll leave you with how the scientists believe in the science in a wonderful report compiled by the UN on its own processes. Donna Laframboise noted in her book, “The Delinquent Teenager” the following,

“In early 2010 the InterAcademy Council, an organization comprised of science bodies from around the world, took an historic step. It established a committee whose purpose was to investigate IPCC policies and procedures.

The committee posted a questionnaire on its website and invited interested parties to respond. Answers to those questionnaires were eventually made public after the names of the respondents had been removed. Those provided by IPCC insiders can be separated from the ones submitted by concerned citizens because the questionnaire begins by asking what role the respondent has played in the IPCC.

People with direct experience of this organization were remarkably frank in their feedback. According to them, scientific excellence isn’t the only reason individuals are invited to participate in the IPCC.

Remember, this is a UN body. It therefore cares about the same things other UN bodies care about. Things like diversity. Gender balance. Regional representation. The degree to which developing countries are represented compared to developed countries.

The collected answers to the questionnaire total 678 pages. As early as page 16, someone complains that: 

“some of the lead authors…are clearly not qualified to be lead authors.” 

Here are other direct quotes:

There are far too many politically correct appointments, so that developing country scientists are appointed who have insufficient scientific competence to do anything useful. This is reasonable if it is regarded as a learning experience, but in my chapter…we had half of the [lead authors] who were not competent.” (p. 138)

“The whole process…[is] flawed by an excessive concern for geographical balance. All decisions are political before being scientific.” (p. 554)

“half of the authors are there for simply representing different parts of the world.” (p. 296)

Lest anyone think that people from less affluent countries were being unjustly stereotyped, the person whose comments appear on page 330 agrees:

“The team members from the developing countries (including myself) were made to feel welcome and accepted as part of the team. In reality we were out of our intellectual depth as meaningful contributors to the process.”

Remember we are told to believe the IPCC is the final word in climate change science. Look forward to shared misery.

Biden faded fast and choked in the last section

First of all, Kristen Welker did a very good job as moderator. Even Trump praised her.

Joe Biden started off well but faded fast in the back half of the debate. He didn’t handle the saga around his son, Hunter, well. He sounded rattled and will only draw more eyeballs to the suppressed media coverage.

Trump explained his points far better that in the first debate. Getting rid of COVID in the first question allowed the more powerful points for Trump in the back half where he could made significant ground around the economy, foreign policy, race and health.

Trump executed well by slamming Biden for being a “politician” who promises stuff but doesn’t deliver. That he hasn’t achieved the things he proposes now in 47 years in politics or 8 years as VP. Biden even disparaged Obama by saying he can do things he wants if he is president.

When Biden raised Hitler in the debate, he started to back pedal fast. Why talk about Nazism?

Biden’s stupidity was to touch on $15 minimum wages to help small business. Is he nuts? What small business in trouble thinks that recovery will come through higher wages?

Biden asked people to fact check his position on fracking. He said he wouldn’t ban it in today’s debate but is on tape countless times saying he would. Too easy to prove he is lying. Biden’s renewables push was hopeless and Trump made it clear why the US doesn’t need to be in the Paris Accord.

At the very end Biden chucked the oil industry under the bus in the closing remarks of the climate change section. Trump pushed him and he took the bait to say he wants to phase it out for good. Surely not the thing to say in fossil fuel dependent swing states.

In summary, this election will be determined by “lived experience“. Nothing is more powerful than becoming irate at a politician telling you what you aren’t experiencing.

We think the actions of mostly despotic Democratic mayors and governors throughout coronavirus have sent a negative message about what happens when citizens lose control and cede power to law makers.

We still believe Trump has got this.

Why the Mute Button will benefit Trump in the final debate

Problem solved? The debate moderators intend to have a mute button in the forthcoming debate to avoid interruption experienced in the first debate.

It sounds wonderful in principle, but we believe if the moderator is of sufficient ability, she shouldn’t require technological assistance to fall back on if her biases seek to stifle robust debate through balanced questioning and reasonable time to answer and redirect.

One can only imagine how fairly the mute button will be applied in the final show off between Trump and Biden on October 22nd given we know that the moderator, Kristen Welker, is staunchly in the Democrat camp.

We are sure when the microphone cut offs are tallied, Trump will outscore Biden on a 10:1 scale, if not more.

We have no doubt that Trump is the more likely of the two to interject but we think it will work in Trump’s favour to be cut off because we know that the deranged mainstream media will openly celebrate and applaud the idea of suppressing the free speech of someone they disagree with on a whim.

We don’t think that will play well to level headed Americans who want to hear and see the reactions of both candidates when pinned on the ropes. A good moderator would seek that type of courage under fire.

Unfortunately, the debate will likely end up being 3 on 1. Softballs will be tossed at Biden and hand grenades lobbed at Trump.

Should Trump leave the stage after being cut off countless times, we won’t be the least bit surprised. He will prove the point of just how biased the moderator was and how she relished the ability to muzzle the most powerful man in the world to feed her own derangement. She’ll prove his point about free speech. Never forget Reagan slammed a moderator for threatening to cut the mic in 1980.

If he leaves, the media will divert all attention to Trump as to why he did so and prove back to their faces that they have absolutely zero interest in objectivity other than to justify using authoritarian cancel culture tactics to silence and humiliate him.

As we like to say, journalistic integrity will only return when the mainstream media loves America more than they hate Trump.

Best they put this on full display.

Sinister Big tech’s intentional election meddling

Big tech is determined to tell users what they deem is suitable for consumption. The top screen grab is from Facebook. Head of Comms, Andy Stone, made it clear the social media giant would curtail the Biden conflict of interest news story under the guise of ‘fact checking.’

The NY Post article that surfaced overnight revealed emails from Hunter Biden’s PC which showed he was leveraging his then VP father’s relationship with Ukrainians execs.

Twitter went to an even more interesting approach to suggest the NY Post link was “unsafe” to prevent views.

What we do know from history is that the more efforts made to cover one’s tracks, the more one guarantees to raise awareness to those problems on a stratospheric level.

Ultimately, big tech firms were granted immunity from prosecution as they promised to be mere hosts of content without fear or favour. Now that they are using discretionary editing, they should lose their sanctuary status and be liable to prosecution for suppressing free speech.

These are deep-seated liberal activist platforms. As businesses they are free to exercise commercial decisions. However they don’t have a right to flaunt laws without real world consequences.

Today big tech crossed a line and outed themselves as interfering in the election.

Denzel Washington has a message for The Atlantic

It appears that the editor-in-chief of The Atlantic, Jeffery Goldberg, has admitted the story about Trump calling fallen soldiers “suckers and losers” could well be false.

Recall that The Atlantic column started off with a claim that Trump did not want to visit the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018, because “his hair would become disheveled in the rain” and that “he did not believe it important to honor American war dead.

When Goldberg was presented with an excerpt from John Bolton’s book which details how the weather was the cause for cancellation of the visit to the cemetery, not a decision over his hair, Goldberg conceded, “I’m sure all of those things are true.”

True to form, he still backed his article and the anonymous sources. Deny, deny, deflect.

Who to believe? Recall The Atlantic’s Trump Derangement Syndrome is so acute one journalist has called to end the Nobel peace prize now that Trump is in the running.

Journalistic integrity will only return when media outlets love America more than they hate Trump.

A must see 18 minutes – before it gets taken down

Kash Lee Kelly let’s rip over what he sees is happening in America. Nothing better than listening to unscripted, from the heart messages. We urge you to watch. Some profanity but a raw clip which resonates.

He touches on many of the points we have discussed in recent months and years. A complicit media desperate to stir up narratives regardless of the consequences as it is all for ratings.

As we like to say, journalistic integrity will only return when the media loves America more than they hate Trump.

Take it away, Kash Lee!

White Supremacist promises to vote for Biden & straight Democrat

For all the mainstream media’s insistence that white supremacists are a monolithic group firmly entrenched in Republican dogma, how it must pain the left to admit that Richard Spencer backs VP Joe Biden. Spencer was a leading figure in the August 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, VA which was attended by neo-nazis.

How the media went out of its way to twist Trump’s “very fine people” statement as an endorsement for neo-nazis, white nationalists and alt-right-wingers when he 100% denounced and condemned them in that same press conference as evidenced here.

Oh, the irony the same liberals that have demanded Trump disavow white nationalists who endorsed him (he already has) are eerily silent to demand that Joe Biden reject Spencer’s support. As Dinesh D’Souza pointed out,

Anyone on the Left who claims white supremacists are for Trump with nothing more than an old photo or anecdote to prove it must now contend with the fact that the poster boy of white supremacy, Richard Spencer, has announced he’s voting Biden & straight Democratic ticket.”

The great USPS Mailbox robbery?

How strange that the supposed Mailbox Heist at the sinister hands of the Trump administration has been occurring since the 1980s.

In 2009, WaPo wrote of the mailbox conspiracy. It stated, “half of the blue boxes in the Washington area have disappeared in the last nine years, and 200,000 nationwide have been plucked up in the last 20 years, leaving 175,000 total.

There are currently 141,900 mailboxes according to the USPS. Note 14,000 were removed under the Obama/Biden administration.

In the last decade, mailed items fell from 171bn to 142.6bn (-17%).

First class mail volumes have fallen from 28.9bn in 2010 to 16.5bn in 2019. Down 43%.

Retail offices have shrunk from 36,222 in 2010 to 34,613 in 2019. Or down 4.5%.

Post offices now have to compete with a plethora of delivery services from Amazon, FedEx and UPS. Furthermore many businesses and agencies accept PDFs for many documents.

Why not let the USPS speak for itself?

Historically, mailboxes have been removed for lack of use and installed in growth areas…When a collection box consistently receives very small amounts of mail for months on end, it costs the Postal Service money in fuel and work hours for letter carriers to drive to the mailbox and collect the mail. Removing the box is simply good business sense in that respect. It is important to note that anyone with a residential or business mailbox can use it as a vehicle to send outgoing mail.

It is so easy to run conspiracy theories but one look at the data and another myth busted. But hey, who would run a voter suppression or voter ID narrative?We remind people of a video made by Ami Horowitz on the very subject. Who knew it was the dimple the opposite of the narrative?!?
