The gaslighting that has taken place since the November 3 election is stunning and evil at the same time.
Numerous bullschtein stories presented as news over the last month and a half have referred to President Donald Trump’s claims of massive, widespread, organized election fraud as “The Big Lie,” which is itself the Big Lie. Unfortunately, it’s not just leftists and Democrats who are gaslighting Trump supporters over election fraud. The RINOs of the Republican Establishment have even started repeating the false narrative, Liz Cheney, the third highest-ranking GOP member of the House is the leader in spreading the real Big Lie from the Republican wing of the Democratic Party.
“It’s incumbent upon everybody who takes an oath of office and swears to protect and defend the Constitution that we recognize what happened on Jan. 6, that we commit ourselves that it must never happen again, that we recognize the damage that was done by the president, President Trump, saying that somehow the election was stolen, making those claims for months and summoning the mob and provoking them then in the attack on the Capitol. And also, and very importantly, in refusing, despite multiple requests from people to ask him to stop what was happening to ask him to stop the violence to protect the Capitol to protect the counting of electoral votes — he didn’t do so.”
The frightening irony of what’s going on to people who understand it is that the unprecedented amount of election and voter fraud that took place during and after the 2020 presidential election is the exact same thing Nazi Germany did during World War II.
A big lie (German: große Lüge; often the big lie) is a propaganda technique used for political purpose, defined as “a gross distortion or misrepresentation of the facts, especially when used as a propaganda device by a politician or official body”. The German expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, to describe the use of a lie so “colossal” that no one would believe that someone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously”. Hitler believed the technique was used by Jews to blame Germany’s loss in World War I on German general Erich Ludendorff, who was a prominent nationalist political leader in the Weimar Republic. Historian Jeffrey Herf says the idea of the original big lie was instrumental in turning sentiment against Jews and bringing about the Holocaust.
The American people have been subjected to the lies from Democrats and the Woke Supremacy including the Fake News media and the censoring tech tyrants of social media, accepting the election results as gospel, not just ignoring any allegations or questions of election fraud, but punishing those who ask any questions, censoring any and all speech about what took place during and after the election, canceling anyone who dares point out the many irregularities, material evidence, and circumstantial evidence and labeling it as a conspiracy theory, misinformation, and now the Big Lie. Censoring free speech is one of the most unamerican things you can do.
Just the other day I saw a headline pop up in my Twitter feed, “Big Lie? Big Whoop: Many Republicans on Capitol Hill see little reason to bat down Trump’s election lies” That, and dozens of other like-minded headlines coming from the Left is straight out of the Nazi propaganda playbook by telling a lie so outrageous, so big and repeating it often enough that eventually, people start to believe it’s truthful.
I honestly believe that the Democrats and their sycophants utilize psychological professionals to teach them how average people think and how to be able to gaslight them and the truth of what happened during the election, and I believe they have mastered it and gone beyond simple gaslighting because what they are doing now is worse than simple gaslighting by publishing articles like these that are full of lies so that other leftists can use them and not only throw them in the face of conservatives who know better but also point to the large number of articles saying the exact same thing as if that’s evidence that there was no voter fraud. They are doing this in an effort to make the rest of the country and the world believe that the conservative Trump supporters are the ones who are lying when they point to hard evidence and testimony from whistleblowers from multiple state legislature hearings about the massive amounts of election fraud they witnessed personally.
And so far it’s not really making much of a dent in the 74 million people who voted for Trump because the evidence is just too great to make us not believe our own lying eyes. What am I talking about? When you see the key battleground states during Election Day evening announce almost simultaneously that they were going to stop counting until the morning, something that has never been done before, you start to think that’s odd, why did they do that? Then, during the night when the people in the vote-counting centers were supposed to have stopped counting ballots until the morning suddenly show huge spikes of votes for Joe Biden show up on the tally boards across the TV screen, just enough to overtake Donald Trump’s lead, in multiple states, by the way, you start to feel shocked that you witnessed it yourself. At first, you think to yourself that’s not what you just saw. It’s can’t be. They said they were stopping the vote count and then votes for Biden skyrocketed during the middle of the night. They wouldn’t lie, would they? Of course, they would. Vote counting centers are at the local level and the local levels are all controlled by Democrats.
We even saw video footage of election fraud taking place in Georgia and we were shown voting machine audits that just did not match up. We saw in one Michigan county where over 70 precincts were out of balance. That means in 70 precincts there were more people who voted than people registered to vote.
At first, the lies of the Left and the gaslighting by the Fake News media weren’t effective so the tech tyrants running social media began a full-blown censorship operation where they punished anyone who wanted to talk about what they know took place.
Censorship isn’t anything new to social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google, and YouTube. On Facebook, we would get a strike if we mentioned the non-whistleblower whistleblower’s name during the Ukraine phone call impeachment farce. We literally had our page taken down temporarily, and there was nothing illegal about mentioning his name or even a violation of Facebook’s rules.
YouTube will delete your videos if they mention any real evidence of election fraud. They recently deleted a video I uploaded about the use of a drug that doctors are saying cures coronavirus in most cases after one does in under 48 hours saying the video was “misinformation,” even though the video had medical doctors discussing the drug.
We have Dominion and other vote-counting machine companies suing people like MyPillow’s CEO Mike Lindell for speaking out about data evidence of election fraud.
The Left’s Big Lie about election fraud has gotten so bad that many conservative outlets are afraid to engage in the discussion for fear of being deplatformed like the social media site Parler was when Amazon kicked them off of their web services platform.
YouTube channels like the great Right Side Broadcasting are stuck in a situation where they have to conform to the tech tyrant’s demands. I won’t call them rules or terms of service, because those things are usually enforced on all users, yet we see conservative channels get punished for free speech while liberal channels get away with far worse.
The Left’s Big Lie claiming election fraud is the Big Lie is one of the worst frauds they ever perpetrated on the American people. At this point, the only way to defeat the bald-faced lies of the Big Lie is to never give up spreading the truth. We need to create our own social media platforms, but more importantly platforms that don’t have to rely on leftist companies for their survival. In the meantime, we should continue to let the Left know that we know they are the ones spreading a big lie and that the truth is on our side.
In our United States of America, there are people from over a hundred nations within our borders, for different reasons. They come from different cultural, political, and historical backgrounds yet for those who have been given citizenship through the Naturalization process, the cultural expectation that they should embrace our American culture has been diminishing over the past 60 years.
What has been the main driver for this change in our country?
In our public schools and most universities, postmodernism mixed with Marxism has become a pervasive world view in their faculties. Over time this world view has been infused into the curriculum thus creating graduation classes of insecure collectivists, some Nihilists, with most basing their pursuits in existentialism.
So with no basis for their origins, no absolute truths, they move through life consigned to give up individualism, for collectivism, and unconsciously do not go outside the group think on an array of issues. They know if they do, will find themselves isolated by the “democratic” mob ruled cancel culture.
When professors who thoughts are the genesis of some of these teachings, start the snowball effect down the hills of their student’s lives, it is no surprise that in their narcissism, make judgments and develop solutions to fix the wrongs they perceive through their ivory castle eyes.
Look at former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich’s idea of fixing America in a post-Trump Presidency nation.
On Saturday Reich called for the creation of a truth and reconciliation commission to “erase Trump’s lies” and expose those who “enabled” them.
“When this nightmare is over, we need a Truth and Reconciliation Commission,” Reich tweeted. “It would erase Trump’s lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe.”
After he took flak from those accusing him of promoting totalitarianism,
Reich then posted a link to an article from The Conversation explaining the history of truth and reconciliation commissions and how they are supposedly intended to rectify historical injustices and heal the wounds of division.
From the article;
“The goal of a truth commission — in some forms also called a truth and reconciliation commission, as it is in Canada — is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past.”
“The hope has been that restorative justice would provide greater healing than the retributive justice modelled most memorably by the Nuremberg Trials after the Second World War.” It concluded by claiming the United States needs a truth and reconciliation commission because of its “centuries of enslavement, state-sponsored racism, denial of civil rights and ongoing economic and social disparity.”
Reich’s idea echoed that of MSNBC host Chris Hayes, who earlier this month also called for a truth and reconciliation commission to “deal with” those who question COVID-19 protocols.
MSNBC host Chris Hayes raised eyebrows when he floated the idea of a “truth and reconciliation commission” as “the most humane and reasonable way to deal” with those who seemingly question the received wisdom regarding how best to protect against COVID-19.
Hayes’ comment came in response to a tweet from American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp, who was himself responding to a tweet from NBC News presidential historian Michael Beschloss, who said, “Why is a sick President riding in an SUV waving to supporters outside Walter Reed, jeopardizing the Secret Service agents inside the car with him?”
Beschloss was referring to President Donald Trump’s brief drive on Sunday past supporters who had assembled outside Walter Reed Medical Center during his convalescence there. Some criticized the move as “reckless,” and The Washington Post reported that “current and former Secret Service agents and medical professionals were aghast” the president would lock himself inside a hermetically sealed car with others while having the coronavirus. Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) even demanded that the Secret Service brief Congress on the incident.
Referencing the fact that Trump was masked and his Secret Service agents decked out in necessary PPE, Schlapp tweeted in response, “So masks don’t work? I’m confused.”
Quote-tweeting Schlapp, Hayes wrote, “The most humane and reasonable way to deal with all these people, if we survive this, is some kind of truth and reconciliation commission.”
For those of us in the real world, we see daily the ramifications of Reich’s and other Godless world views, which would sit very comfortably on the table of tyrannical fascists leaders of the 20th century.
Their reasoning; When in doubt set up a commission of bureaucrats, put in place by those who thirst for power. Using their “higher intellect” they correct the wrongs, that they perceive, for the dumbed-down citizens, and if needed, enforce the changes through coercion.
Our reasoning, smaller government, less regulations, and the removal of laws that restrict our God-given freedoms, Liberty!
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), a very despicable politician, is considering pulling a slimy stunt to use a fast-track budget maneuver to legalize millions of illegal immigrants if bipartisan negotiations on providing a pathway to citizenship fall apart, The New York Times reported.
In other words, unless the Republicans agree to allow millions of illegal aliens to vote in the 2022 midterm elections, the Democrats will do something so low class that it would make all of our grandmothers fold their arms, furrow their eyebrows, and with each headshake mumble, “Mmm mmm mmm” in disgust.
For clarity, these people already have a pathway to citizenship. They failed to take advantage of it the first time they came into our country when they illegally crossed our border. The pathway to citizenship is to leave our country, then go to a legal port of entry to apply to come into our country legally. I can guarantee you that no Republican or conservative would argue against them doing that. If they would just abide by the rules the way thousands of legal immigrants do each year, hardly anyone would complain. It’s the “illegal” part that gets us.
This scheme is a backup plan Schumer has ready to go in case 15 senators from both sides of the aisle do not reach a compromise on immigration.
They wonder why negotiations aren’t going so well when what’s at stake here is Republicans never again having a fair chance to win an election and trust me if it were known that the illegal aliens overwhelmingly voted Republican the Democrats would start a program that would catapult them across the Rio Grande 24 hours a day 7 days a week 365 days a year.
As it appears there will be no agreement in the foreseeable future between both parties, the radical progressives are getting nervous about Democrats not being able to seal the deal before they lose everything in the 2022 midterm elections. They know that if they get amnesty passed for millions of illegals already here, between 22 and 30 million of them and not the Democrat’s Big Lie figure of 11 million, they will never have to worry about elections ever again.
The Majority Leader has held private conversations with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus over the last couple of weeks telling them that he is “actively exploring” if it will be possible to sneak in a revision of immigration laws to Joe Biden’s infrastructure package and through the budget reconciliation method where they will only need 51 votes, according to two people who were briefed on Schumer’s scam, according to the Times. Incidentally, the Democrats plan to use reconciliation just to get their $4.1 trillion infrastructure spending package done.
The Democrats are willing to put anything they can’t get through the democratic process into reconciliation to get what they want. That is effectively getting rid of the filibuster and don’t expect any mainstream news media hacks to question the tactic. They did with Obamacare and they will do it for any bill that the majority of the American people are against. The Democrats stopped listening to their constituents on January 20.
“Democrats must act,” said Sergio Gonzales, who is the director of the Immigration Hub, an organization that claims to support a pro-immigrant agenda in Congress but in reality is a pro-illegal immigrant turned Registered Democrat agenda. “Now is the time. This year is the time. We must have citizenship this year.”
The most amazing thing is how the Democrats conflate illegal immigration with legal immigration. The two could not be more separate from each other and yet we get gaslighted every year that if you are against giving amnesty to illegal aliens whose first act on our soil was to break our immigration laws, then you are against immigration. It’s absurd.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was sober long enough last month to approve of the idea of using reconciliation to push through an immigration measure, citing the “budget impacts of immigration in our country.”
For those who have heard the term “reconciliation” thrown about before but don’t really know what it is, reconciliation is a parliamentary procedure that speeds up the passage of budgetary legislation in the US Senate. It can be used on bills for spending, revenue, and increasing the federal debt limit, and nowhere does it say anything about allowing the Democrats to include amnesty for up to 30 million illegal alien criminals.
Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), a high-ranking Democrat (SURPRISE!) also came out in favor of the sleazy tactic last week, according to the Times piece. Who woulda thunk it?
Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), one of the Republicans who has been involved in the negotiations, warned that before the Democrats increase their voter base by tens of millions, they should first address the crisis at the border going on right now. Border agents said they handled 19,000 children at the border in a single month, and the Democrats want to give amnesty to the millions of illegal aliens already here through the reconciliation process.
“Before we can do anything meaningful on immigration, we’re going to have to deal with the current crisis at the border,” said Cornyn said, who has been involved in the bipartisan talks. “I don’t think the public is going to tolerate us ignoring this crisis, and it’s just going to get worse unless we deal with it.”
On using reconciliation, Cornyn said, “I think they’re dreaming. I don’t think the parliamentarian will allow that. That’s not really the purpose of reconciliation.”
I share the senator from Texas’ sentiment, but we are dealing with the Woke Supremacy here. The radicals are in charge and they will do anything it takes to secure election victories forever, including getting the parliamentarian to comply. I put nothing past them.
According to the rules that the Democrats are trying to skirt around to avoid a filibuster, in order to add amnesty for millions of lawbreakers, the Democrats have to prove that the policy change to include amnesty has a budgetary impact that is more than incidental. Merely saying between drinks that immigration costs money isn’t enough.
On MSNBC’s “Deadline” with Nicolle Wallace on Wednesday, Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that the country cannot ignore the predominant domestic threat being the white nationalist threat and “some of the folks are part of the Trump base.”
This is the same man who lied every time he got on TV for over two years about Trump-Russia collusion. Schiff said that he personally had evidence of collusion. The only problem was he never revealed what it was. He kept saying he couldn’t reveal his evidence was because of the never-ending investigations.
Even after Special Counsel Robert Mueller revealed that his two-and-a-half-year investigation, like the first two investigations, one in the House and a bipartisan investigation in the Senate, came up with zero evidence that Trump or anyone in his campaign colluded with the Russians, Schiff continued to say there was real evidence and to this day he never said what it was. He was lying. Schiff always lies. And he’s lying now about white nationalists. There is no credible white nationalist threat to the country, and it is insulting to claim that Trump supporters have anything to do with white nationalists. If there were a white nationalist threat, we would see them.
“I want to ask you about the work on the intelligence committee,” Wallace said. “Is it different now that the intel chiefs testified to the tragic new reality that the gravest threats to the country are domestic violent extremists? Currently, under the threat warning, we know about radicalized by the big lie still being repeated by Donald Trump. I believe six times since last week and some COVID restrictions where he was also a leading and rater with tweets of liberate Michigan and liberate Virginia?”
The big lie is Democrats like Wallace and Schiff dismissing the very real, very credible evidence of massive voter fraud during the 2020 election. The evidence was real and palpable. We’ve seen it. I’ve seen it. We watched the legislature hearings where whistleblowers, real whistleblowers not like Schiff’s version who come with second and third-hand knowledge, testify under penalty of perjury to numerous accounts of voter fraud. We listened to data experts who analyzed 2020 voter data and found serious irregularities only in the battleground states. That’s what they call the big lie.
It is insufferable to listen to this kind of garbage coming from a member of Congress. The country watched ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter topple public statues, loot businesses, burn down businesses, take over police precincts, murder innocent people. And that wasn’t just a Friday night. Riots went on every day throughout the entire summer of 2020, and these clowns at MSNBC give a license to Schiff to claim the biggest domestic terror threat is white nationalists. You can probably fit them all into a school bus, and yet they say absolutely nothing about the threat of Woke mobs rioting in cities to this very day.
Schiff replied, “It does affect the work of our committee certainly. I think all of the domestic agencies with a portfolio with domestic terrorism have to prioritize it like FBI and DHS. We have the responsibility of overseeing the intelligence component of that. We were already doing an investigation last year into politicization of intelligence at DHS where one whistleblower was alleging that instructions were being given essentially to downplay the seriousness of the domestic terror committed by white nationalists and hype the threat of Antifa.”
This sounds like more of Schiff’s invisible evidence he always goes on about. The whole country watched as ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter set buildings on fire, beat people, looted, set a federal building on fire, and more. We didn’t see white nationalists doing these things.
Shiff continued, “We saw that from Bill Barr and others in the leadership of the last administration. We just had a hearing on this subject. I can tell you one of the ongoing challenges is a lot of the Republican members didn’t think that our committee or the intelligence agencies, even those like the FBI and DHS with responsibility here, should be looking at this. That’s quite remarkable. You know, if we were looking at the threat of Islamic terror, the threat from within there would be no reservation about that among my GOP colleagues. But they were very uncomfortable clearly with the FBI and DHS looking at the problem of white nationalism and domestic terror.”
This from the party that used federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies to spy on a presidential campaign, then spied on a president-elect, and then spied on the president. It doesn’t get any more politicized than that.
The question is why are they not looking at the groups of people who rioted every day throughout the summer instead of wasting time on the January 6 riot that was not made up of white nationalists, at least according to the FBI. The Democrat’s big lie is that white nationalists are the ones who stormed the Capitol building. The FBI says there were none.
Wallace said, “I was a member of the Republican Party in good standing after 9/11. I can’t fathom the Republicans having that hear no evil, see no evil do nothing about the response to 9/11. You are right. When the threat was foreign terrorism, there was not enough that they could do. There was no measure too aggressive. My question is, can you protect this country with one of the two major political parties refusing to recognize the threat?”
The segment came off as choreographed. I wouldn’t put anything beyond MSNBC or Adam Schiff. They do these segments to hammer the thought that the people they encouraged over the summer to riot aren’t the problem. Schiff and Fake News want to attack Trump supporters to take the focus off what the Democrats are pushing through Congress. It’s really that simple. In the same manner, Schiff lied about having credible evidence of Russian collusion to keep the focus off what the Democrats were doing. He is repeating the tactic here.
Schiff said, “We ought to be able to find common ground that the predominant terrorism threat facing the country right now is a domestic threat. The predominant part of that domestic threat is white national threat. That has international, transnational links as well. We can’t ignore that because of a political sensitivity that some of the folks are part of the Trump base. So I hope we can find common ground. We need to make sure we protect the country.”
Adam Schiff is incapable of telling the truth. The domestic threat that should be taken seriously is not the clowns who call themselves white nationalists, but ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter who are the ones who did real damage to real people in cities across the country. Listening to Schiff on the conspiracy network MSNBC is a complete waste of time.
Still believe that there is no crisis at our southern border? How long will this administration continue to deny that there is a massive crisis on our southern border before the problems there begin to move northern throughout the entire country? How bad are things getting?
One of the places where FDR forced Japanese Americans into detention centers for no other reason than his racism against “the Japanese mind” during World War II is the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds. They were called internment camps, and they were as unconstitutional as DACA or Joe Biden’s gun control executive orders. That administration stripped American citizens of all of their rights, their money, and their private property, including businesses because they couldn’t trust their loyalties to their own country.
This place that represents a serious lack of judgment on the part of the Roosevelt administration will now serve as an emergency shelter area for unaccompanied illegal alien children who illegally crossed our southern border into the United States.
One has to wonder how illegal their entry was when Joe Biden practically asked their parents to send them, but that’s a whole other story.
Who plotted these bad optics?
According to Hilda Solis, chairwoman of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, the decision was made after having “discussions” with the Biden White House.
The Biden administration has reached out to communities across the country to find spaces for illegal alien children, who were sent by their parents on the long and perilous journey alone, and whose numbers are overwhelming Border Patrol facilities, but there is no crisis. The administration even unsuccessfully tried to get NASA employees to travel to the border to volunteer in the overcrowded camps. What is it with Democrat administrations forcing NASA to do things that have nothing to do with the mission of NASA? Remember when Barack Obama used NASA as a Muslim outreach program?
One of the most disgusting aspects of the Biden administration and the Democratic Party is they are utilizing the human trafficking of unaccompanied illegal alien children for their own future power. They see them as nothing more than “unregistered Democrats,” and we hear not a peep from the mainstream news media. There is big money for cartels in trafficking these kids into the United States.
The Democrats in 1984 changed the name of the facility to the Pomona Fairplex to cover up their Japanese internment camp history. The large Pomona facility is the third one in Southern California to be used to house illegal alien unaccompanied children. That is an indictment of this president and his administration.
In 1942, months after the attack on Pearl Harbor, President Franklin D Roosevelt authorized the internment of Japanese Americans, fearing they would be loyal to the emperor of Japan because of the “Japanese mind.”
There is a California Historical Landmark plaque near the former internment camp where they will now intern illegal alien children.
The internment camp was opened in May 1942. It featured three-hundred and nine barracks, eight mess halls, and thirty-six shower and bathroom facilities. At its peak, the number of Japanese American citizens reached over 5,000 before it was shut down later that year when most of the Japanese American citizens were transferred to a different camp set in Wyoming.
Currently serving as the Fairplex parking lot, it was converted to one of LA County’s huge COVID-19 vaccination sites in recent months.
“Los Angeles County has a responsibility and an opportunity to care for unaccompanied minors coming to the United States,” Solis said Thursday.
Why is it our “responsibility” and how on Lucifer’s black beach is it an “opportunity” for the American taxpayers to have to take care of illegal alien children who were thought so little of that their parents sent them on a 1,000+-mile journey, alone, knowing they would probably be attacked, molested, or worse by coyote human trafficking cartel people along the way to our southern border? That responsibility was manufactured by a president who is power-hungry and a political party that is exploiting these kids to ensure that the Democratic Party will have majorities through future generations.
Republican Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita announced an investigation into five large tech companies for censorship of conservatives.
The five tech companies are Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, and Twitter.
He wants to know if these five companies are guilty of “having potentially harmed Indiana consumers through business practices that are abusive, deceptive and/or unfair.”
The answer is yes.
The simple fact is these five companies have become the propaganda arm of the Democratic party and unless those companies pay huge fines and those responsible for censorship are sent to prison, we will see them become bolder and bolder in aiding and abetting the Democrats.
Not only do they censor conservative content, but they also cover up bad acts by Democrats and their families. Hiding information is as bad as their censorship.
In particular, Attorney General Rokita is probing methods by which the companies have limited consumers’ access to certain content — often deleting or obscuring posted material reflecting a politically conservative point of view. Such manipulation prevents consumers from making informed choices, Attorney General Rokita said.
“In a free society, few assets are more important to consumers than access to information and the opportunity to express political viewpoints in meaningful forums,” Attorney General Rokita said. “It is potentially harmful and unfair for these companies to manipulate content in ways they do not publicly discuss or that consumers do not fully understand.”
The investigation also includes the alleged actions taken by Attorney Vanita Gupta, Joe Biden’s nominee to be associate U.S. attorney general, who has urged social media companies to censor all conservative content. Biden continues to pick the worst possible people to positions of power in his regime. Do we really want someone who disagrees with the first amendment to have a powerful job at the DOJ?
A statement from the office of the Attorney General indicated that Gupta has allegedly met with Facebook and Twitter executives to urge “more rigorous rules and enforcement.”
In 2018, Gupta’s leftist interest group The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights sent a letter addressed to Mark Zuckerberg. The letter urges the CEO to take immediate steps to build public faith in Facebook. For Gupta public faith means engaging in more censorship and content moderation.
Rokita said the investigation could lead to lawsuits against the Big Tech companies.
A bill has been proposed in California that would stop firefighters and police officers from being eligible to serve if they are affiliated with a hate group. I can almost guarantee that Black Lives Matter will not be listed as a hate group.
We expected something like this in the era of all things bad are because of “white supremacists,” but some people are starting to point out that the bill would include banning officers who have conservative or religious views.
“I think everyone can agree that no one wants cops serving us who belong to violent hate groups, but this bill goes far beyond that. It actually goes after individual cops who simply have conservative social views on issues like marriage,” Greg Burt the Director of Capitol Engagement for the California Family Council said. “I think there’s a mistake in assuming that Christians who have conservative views on moral issues are going to be a threat to folks who disagree with them.” Christians are normally seen as very tolerant so long as leftists aren’t trying to persecute them for being Christian.
Last month, California State Assembly Member Ash Kalra introduced Assembly Bill 655, or the California Law Enforcement Accountability Reform Act. The bill requires background checks for law enforcement applicants and disqualifies them if they are associated with a hate group or used hate speech. The problem I see right off the bat is that the Woke Supremacy will be in charge of what is considered a hate group and/or hate speech. Saying “Merry Christmas” to people could one day in the near future be considered hate speech by the useless lunatic fringe weirdos in the Supremacy.
The bill does define hate speech as “advocating or supporting the denial of constitutional rights of, the genocide of, or violence towards, any group of persons based upon race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.” Again, the reason why this would be a disaster in the real world is that the Woke would be the ones who determine if something was “based on race” and they are usually wrong. Just take a look right now at how the Left in this country is treating the rise in attacks on Asian Americans. They are claiming without an ounce of evidence that the attacks are coming from white supremacists when in reality the attacks are coming by leftists who are supporting Critical Race Theory because the Asian community overall rejects Critical Race Theory because among other things it seeks to end meritocracy in America. Asian people like meritocracy because it’s the best way to run a society. Those who work hard reap the rewards and it’s not based on wealth or race.
Critics complain that the bill gives definitions that are too broad in scope and could wind up labeling conservative and religious people to be classified as hateful. That’s exactly what would happen. The Woke Supremamcists are trying to outlaw conservatism and Christianity, that’s what’s going on here.
“Under the guise of addressing police gangs, the bill at the same time launches an inexplicable, unwarranted, and unprecedented attack on peaceable, conscientious officers who happen to hold conservative political and religious views,” Matthew McReynolds, a Senior Staff Attorney at the Pacific Justice Institute penned last week of the bill. “Indeed, this is one of the most undisguised and appalling attempts we have ever seen, in more than 20 years of monitoring such legislation, on the freedom of association and freedom to choose minority viewpoints.” The Woke are at war.
Burt asked, “Should the state now ban from public service qualified, fair-minded people who happen to hold religious or political views that conflict with controversial Supreme Court decisions on marriage and abortion?” Of course, the Woke would say.
“This is a blatantly unconstitutional violation of religious liberty and freedom of speech. It is also a tyrannical abuse of power from a politician seeking to ruin the lives of those he disagrees with,” he said. Yes, but do we have a US Supreme Court anymore?
In an idiotic statement, Kalra said that people “have a constitutional right to have racist and bigoted views” but not “a constitutional right to be a police officer.” But police officers still have Constitutional rights. This buffoon is already letting the cat out of the bag that the legislation is being proposed to weed out white police officers.
“The role and responsibility of peace officers is so important for a community healing — for a community’s safety — and the people in the community don’t feel that those that are entrusted with that responsibility look at them in a way that’s unbiased. That undermines our entire public safety system,” Kalra said. He isn’t intelligent enough to realize that what he said was racist. Kalra just indicted all white police officers who are either conservative or religious as racists who should not be entrusted in any community in America. That is by itself a racist statement.
The Assembly Public Safety Committee will take up the bill on April 6.
A favorite mantra (or is it a chant?) of liberals is that tax cuts cause deficits and are evil and tax increases are noble, virtuous, and pure. Both notions are a bunch of gobbledygook hogwash.
The Biden administration fresh off the $1.9 trillion non-relief COVID relief package is about to hike taxes to pay for a round of infrastructure and wasteful climate change spending.
Biden’s White House has said tax increases are definitely on the table and they claim they are targeting wealthy individuals and corporations to pay more.
“His priority and focus has always been on people paying their fair share and also focusing on corporations that may not be paying their fair share, either,” White House press secretary “One time, at band camp girl,” Jen Psaki said. “So that remains his overarching approach, but there isn’t a package yet where we’re talking about pay-fors yet.”
Biden and his people are as annoyingly obtuse. Did they not see the numbers under Trump?
Here’s the thing. Numbers do not lie unless manipulated by liars. It can be proven by real numbers that tax increases always lower government revenues while tax cuts always increase government revenues. It’s counterintuitive, but it is true. The Democrats know this, but they hike taxes anyway because it allows them to virtue signal to the great unwashed that they are sticking it to the rich and they use the tax code to control people’s behaviors as good little dictators tend to do.
First off, this notion that the rich need to “pay their fair share” I consider an evil manipulation because according to IRS data the wealthiest wage earners already pay their fair share and then some. The latest numbers provided by the IRS show the top 1 percent of wage earners paid 37.2 percent of the entire federal income tax burden. The top 5 percent of wage earners paid 58.23 percent, over half of the entire federal income tax burden. The top 10 percent of wage earners paid 69.47 percent and the top 50 percent of wage earners paid 96.96 percent of the federal income tax burden. That leaves the bottom 50 percent of wage earners paying only 3.04 percent, and they are the ones who use most of the government services paid for by the rest of us. So now you know that the next time a Democrat says they want the rich to pay their fair share you know they are lying to you because when 5 percent of any group pays almost 70 percent of the costs they are absolutely paying their fair share.
Joe Biden is saying that he wants to raise taxes only on people earning $400,000 a year or more, those evil rich, greedy ba$tard$, right?
Looking at it another way, people who earn $400,000 a year are mostly small business owners who were hit very hard economically in 2020 with lockdowns as designed by Democrats to take away a major funding source for Republican candidates. It’s known that Republicans dominate in campaign donations from small businesses because they support small businesses while Democrats attack them with taxes and regulations out the wazoo. I have no idea where the wazoo is, but I hear that taxes and regulations pour from it like an out-of-control fire hydrant as far as small businesses are concerned.
Biden campaigned on increasing the corporate tax from 21 percent to 28 percent and the individual rate from 37 percent to 39.6 percent. On top of that, he wants to raise the capital gains tax rate on people who earn more than a million dollars a year. And trust me, eventually, those tax increases will hit you, the great unwashed as the virtue signaling done now is just to get you used to tax rates being increased.
Here’s the thing. Biden and the Democrats in Congress are trying to convince you that raising taxes will help them generate more revenue to pay for all of the things that you are probably never going to benefit from anyway, but it’s a total lie. If the government needs to raise its revenue the best way to do that is by cutting taxes. Cutting taxes has worked every single time it has been tried. Okay, so when was it tried you ask?
“The collection of any taxes which are not absolutely required, which do not beyond reasonable doubt contribute to the public welfare, is only a species of legalized larceny. Under this republic the rewards of industry belong to those who earn them. The only constitutional tax is the tax which ministers to public necessity. The property of the country belongs to the people of the country. Their title is absolute.”
Sounds a lot like Trump doesn’t it?
Anyway, Coolidge got tax rates lowered from 77 percent eventually to 25 percent lower than Reagan’s 28 percent. Lowering tax rates started under his boss President William Harding until his death when Coolidge became president.
The net effect of lower taxes created an economic boom the likes of which hadn’t been seen before. In fact, our economy became so strong they nicknamed the time period “The Roaring Twenties.” Along with the roaring economy, government revenues increased every year.
By the time Coolidge left office, the national debt was lowered to $16.9 billion in 1929 from $22.3 billion in 1923, and the Federal Budget was reduced to $3.3 billion in 1929 from $5.1 billion in 1921.
Okay, but that was just an outlier, right? Wrong.
The next President to lower taxes to great results was JFK. And he was a Democrat.
In January 1963, President Kennedy presented Congress with a tax proposal to reduce the top marginal tax rate from 91 percent to 65 percent and to cut the corporate tax rate from 52 percent to 47 percent. Kennedy was assassinated before Congress voted on his budget. Out of respect for his death, Congress voted nearly unanimously for the bill. Even Soviet-loving Marxists like Ted Kennedy, Howard Metzenbaum and Al Gore voted for it. And the result was the economic boom that followed and government revenues increased.
President Ronald Reagan lowered tax rates from 70 percent to 28 percent. Federal revenues under the new rates sadly went down. No, I’m just kidding. Government revenues more than doubled going from $500 billion in 1980 to $1.2 trillion by 1990, about 50 percent higher when you account for inflation.
The examples don’t stop there.
When President George W Bush cut taxes it created the largest economic expansion ever. Sadly, his economy went south after the 30+ year Democrat-created Housing Market scam finally crashed the economy, but the tax cuts increased government revenues.
The same happened under President Donald Trump when he cut tax rates giving us the largest economic expansion and the greatest economy we ever saw. Government revenues again went up.
How is this so? To the average dopey liberal this doesn’t make sense. You lower the tax rates and the government gets more money?
It’s very easy to understand and it all goes back to screwing the rich. When the government raises taxes rich people who understand money will find other ways of either investing to earn money or hiding it until better times. For example, when taxes are at 70 percent while Democrats are salivating at the screw job they’re doing to America, a wealthy person sees it as he has to give the government 70 cents on every dollar he earns and only gets to keep 30 cents. To the wealthy guy that’s not worth the efforts of starting and running a business. Why go to the trouble of starting a business when the government is going to steal well over half of what you make? Instead, he’ll invest his money into something like tax-free municipal bonds like the Kennedys do until better tax rates come along. When the rich guy isn’t investing his money into a business that means there are no new jobs for employees who would be hired to help run the business. No job means no income tax revenue for the government.
But, if the rates were reversed and the wealthy guy gets to keep 70 cents for every dollar he earns and only has to pay 30 cents to the government he’s going to see that as an opportunity to invest his money to start a new business. His business may be such a big idea that he can’t run it all by himself, so he hires employees to work there. Every new employee earning a paycheck will now pay income taxes on his earnings and government revenues go up because of it.
“BUT THE DEFICITS!” scream the liberals. Tax cuts do not cause deficits. In fact, tax cuts have nothing to do with deficits. Websters defines a deficit as spending more than you earn. We’ve already seen that tax cuts counterintuitively increase government revenues, so when deficits arise during times of private sector economic prosperity by cutting taxes it’s because the swamp rats in DC outspent even the rising revenues. Think about it this way. If you have a box and you place a dollar inside that box, that’s called saving. If someone comes along who sells candy bars and you ask the guy how much for one and he says $1. You open up your box and take out the dollar that you put in there and you give it to the guy who then hands you the candy bar. That’s called spending. But what if you didn’t put the dollar in the box? When the guy comes by with candy bars you have nothing in the box to buy any candy. Did not having the dollar in the box affect spending in any way? Of course not, because you didn’t spend anything. The problem is we have the most thieving people in the world running the country now and what they would do is buy a thousand candy bars with only $1 in the box and tell the guy they pay for the other candy bars later. That created a deficit of $999.00 because they spent more than what they had in the box. Democrats and liberals do not understand this very simple example.
That phenomenon of tax cuts causing government revenues to go up also has the added benefit of the private sector growing and expanding and that causes the unemployment rate to drop and pretty much everything gets better for the American worker and the American family. Conservatives like Trump understand this and they make it a priority to help the American working class. Democrats on the other hand either do not understand this common-sense thinking of the economy or they do but would much rather prioritize government control over the people instead of helping the American working class do better for themselves. Joe Biden has chosen government control over helping the American working class.
‘By the thousands, U.S. service members are refusing or putting off the COVID-19 vaccine as frustrated commanders scramble to knock down internet rumors and find the right pitch that will persuade troops to get the shot.
Some Army units are seeing as few as one-third agree to the vaccine. Military leaders searching for answers believe they have identified one potential convincer: an imminent deployment. Navy sailors on ships heading out to sea last week, for example, were choosing to take the shot at rates exceeding 80% to 90%.
Air Force Maj. Gen. Jeff Taliaferro, vice director of operations for the Joint Staff, told Congress on Wednesday that “very early data” suggests that just up to two-thirds of the service members offered the vaccine have accepted.
That’s higher than the rate for the general population, which a recent survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation put at roughly 50%. But the significant number of forces declining the vaccine is especially worrisome because troops often live, work and fight closely together in environments where social distancing and wearing masks, at times, are difficult.
The military’s resistance also comes as troops are deploying to administer shots at vaccination centers around the country and as leaders look to American forces to set an example for the nation.
“We’re still struggling with what is the messaging and how do we influence people to opt in for the vaccine,” said Brig. Gen. Edward Bailey, the surgeon for Army Forces Command. He said that in some units just 30% have agreed to take the vaccine, while others are between 50% and 70%. Forces Command oversees major Army units, encompassing about 750,000 Army, Reserve and National Guard soldiers at 15 bases.
At Fort Bragg, North Carolina, where several thousand troops are preparing for future deployments, the vaccine acceptance rate is about 60%, Bailey said. That’s “not as high as we would hope for front-line personnel,” he said.
Bailey has heard all the excuses.
“I think the most amusing one I heard was, ‘The Army always tells me what to do, they gave me a choice, so I said no’,” he said.
Service leaders have vigorously campaigned for the vaccine. They have held town halls, written messages to the force, distributed scientific data, posted videos, and even put out photos of leaders getting vaccinated.
For weeks, the Pentagon insisted it did not know how many troops were declining the vaccine. On Wednesday they provided few details on their early data.
Officials from individual military services, however, said in interviews with The Associated Press that refusal rates vary widely, depending on a service member’s age, unit, location, deployment status and other intangibles.
The variations make it harder for leaders to identify which arguments for the vaccine are most persuasive. The Food and Drug Administration has allowed emergency use of the vaccine, so it’s voluntary. But Defense Department officials say they hope that soon may change.
“We cannot make it mandatory yet,” Vice Adm. Andrew Lewis, commander of the Navy’s 2nd Fleet, said last week. “I can tell you we’re probably going to make it mandatory as soon as we can, just like we do with the flu vaccine.”
About 40 Marines gathered recently in a California conference room for an information session from medical staff. One officer, who was not authorized to publicly discuss private conversations and spoke on condition of anonymity, said Marines are more comfortable posing questions about the vaccine in smaller groups.
The officer said one Marine, citing a widely circulated and false conspiracy theory, said: “I heard that this thing is actually a tracking device.” The medical staff, said the officer, quickly debunked that theory, and pointed to the Marine’s cellphone, noting that it’s an effective tracker.’
I understand everyone has different risk profiles for both the vaccine and the virus and I am not trying to tell you what you should do, everyone needs to make their own decision on these things.
Also, as you know, I’m not a doctor so take what I say with a gain of salt 😉
