Says more about Fauci than Trump

If principles were so high on Dr Fauci’s agenda, why didn’t he resign and publicly out Trump for all his wicked ways at the time he felt silenced? Was he enjoying the limelight of being in a position of power and privilege too much to do so?

Vice wrote that Fauci feels “liberated” now he works for President Biden.

Fauci said,

I can tell you I take no pleasure at all being in a situation of contradicting the president so it was really something that you didn’t feel that you could actually say something...”

Yet Fauci previously said of Trump,

The president [Trump] has listened to what I have said and to what the other people on the task force have said…when I have made recommendations he has taken them. He has never countered or overridden me…

Which is it? The second comment hardly sounds like someone muzzled by a crazed tyrant.

Don’t forget that Fauci was originally against masks as a preventive and then for them when it was politically expedient to do so. So inconsistency is a hallmark.

Now that Trump has gone, is Fauci jumping on the “trash Trump at any opportunity” cancel culture bandwagon because he’s now got a new master who welcomes criticism of his predecessor and allowed him to keep his job? Sounds like it.

Was Fauci worried that Trump might win the election and resigning early would have left him with egg on his face? Or did he just hedge his bets like he has done with so much of his advice?

Vice’s article says way more about who is really telling fibs. But of course, we can’t expect any journalistic integrity from the left wing media to call him out on his conflicting remarks.

Media fawns over Biden – video montage

https://fb.watch/397ra_VLZt/

While it comes as absolutely no surprise, the media gushed and fawned over President Joe Biden’s inauguration. Take a look at this nauseating video montage welcoming the new White House occupant.

We honestly wonder how the media will cope as they wean themselves off 5 years of complete derangement. Listen to the contrast of how they sent off Trump today.

Can Americans live on a diet of news filtered through rose-tinted glasses?

But not letting someone earn $1,000 to survive is even more obscene

The Guardian remains true to form as ever – clueless about reality.

The author of this piece, Richard Denniss, forgets that the reason mice die in mousetraps is they fail to understand why the cheese is free.

An extra $1m may not be much to a billionaire but $1,000 to someone who can’t survive without it is way more obscene. And governments that imposed draconian laws on people who could least afford it based on junk science and activist health experts drunk on power, are even more out of line.

There is a precious irony in Denniss’ attack on the billionaires. If he took note of who the biggest mutual beneficiaries of lockdowns were, he would see that many of those same billionaires made the extra millions by hopping into bed with left leaning parties who openly supported the destruction of small businesses executed under the guise of compassion.

Still, it is easier for him to blame conservatives than admit that the ultimate impact lockdowns had on human lives by way of suicide, poverty and unemployment came from policies heavily promoted by the left.

Take your pick

Take your pick.

Senator Chuck Schumer implied the Capitol riots ranked up there with Pearl Harbor. Arnold Schwarzenegger likened it to Kristallnacht. Now ex FBI Director Jim Comey thinks it was a Chernobyl.

If a true disaster hits America, what will it be compared to?

Good to see the media make absolutely no effort to issue an “are you serious?” question to these audacious claims.

As complicit as ever, await all the ‘Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are saviors who make Mother Teresa’s achievements look as impactful as a highway cafe diner waitress pouring free refills’ puff pieces from the media. Reach for the nearest bucket.

The media will preach unity while they simultaneously flip the bird to 74million Americans who they disagree with as the problem dividing America.

We wish the Biden Administration the very best of luck for all the right reasons but we fear his agenda will drive an even larger wedge which will send the country over the abyss when it comes to free, open and inclusive discourse.

Trump was the catalyst. Americans have just reappointed the cause. Buyers remorse.

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!

Just like clockwork, Cuomo thinks costs of lockdown too high

Just like clockwork, Democrats, like NY Gov Andrew Cuomo, have finally seen the light that the cost of lockdowns is too high. That the cure is way more costly than virus.

Now that Biden is assured to take his seat in the Oval Office, let’s see how quickly corona leaves the front pages of the mainstream media as deaths plummet (probably by virtue of a tweak in the manner of recording by the CDC). His administration will get a big fat tick of approval and don’t be surprised to see a plethora of puff pieces which show the rebound in economic activity among Democrat-controlled states thanks to President Biden’s superior stewardship. Who knew!?

Never mind that the left targeted Republican-controlled states which saw the necessity of keeping people employed and rarely told businesses whether they were essential or not. Never mind that Republican-controlled states tended to have lower relative and absolute COVID19 death tolls despite not locking down.

Perhaps Cuomo chips will be a thing of the past and he will finally be able to lure all those rich folk that make up 50% of the tax base back from Connecticut. Best he start working on his culinary skills and making sure he buys the well heeled those drinks he promised to buy with the taxes they previously paid.

Maybe Cuomo should seek to get Hollywood actors to chip in? After all they bent over backwards to make public videos to celebrate his cringeworthy Emmy award.

However will the United Van Lines survey which showed most people left Democrat-controlled states in 2020 to Republican-controlled ones.

Stuff your outrage Libs

MRCTV’s Britt Hughes highlights the left’s outrage over the storming of Capitol Hill. Never mind the celebratory mood they’ve shown for the last 3 years over violence perpetrated by their own.

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.
