Dan Bongino, who has a top-ranking conservative daily podcast show, is a Fox News contributor-and-sometimes-fill-in host, has some exciting news.
Dan Bongino’s show has been chosen to fill the late Rush Limbaugh’s time slot.
On Wednesday, “The Dan Bongino Show” was announced by Cumulus Media’s Westwood One. The new news and opinion show will start on May 24, and it will air from 12 pm to 3 pm ET. Monday-Friday. The show will be broadcast to a national audience.
Dan’s show will hit the hot topic political stories with Bongino’s uncanny ability to explain complex issues so that even Brian Stelter could understand. Well maybe, but I know you can pick up what I’m laying down. He will continue to debunk leftist Woke Supremacist and RINO nonsense in ways that will have you waiting for his next show.
According to a press release, “As a former Secret Service agent and [New York Police Department] officer, Bongino is uniquely positioned to provide commentary and analysis that directly questions the philosophical underpinnings of both the Left and big government Republicans.
“Over the past 10 years, he has earned a spot on The New York Times bestseller list several times and has joined Fox News as a commentator.”
“I’m excited to embrace the immense power of radio to connect with my listeners live for three hours every day,” Bongino said. “This is an incredible privilege, and I pledge to honor the trailblazing work of those who came before me.”
A great thing about this move is Bongino will no longer have to worry about being censored by the Big Tech tyrants at Twitter, Facebook, and Google, which he has given up on anyway since he got involved with social media companies such as Parler and Rumble because his voice will now reach tens of millions of people each week.
Bongino praised Rush when the conservative icon passed away on Feb. 17 at 70-years-old after battling lung cancer. if ever there was a fighter it was Rush who outlasted what any of his doctors thought. He had the passion to keep doing what he did so well and he did it right up until the time when God called him home.
For those of you who haven’t yet listened to Bongino’s show, he begins each episode with the show’s producer Joe Armacost hitting the bell button to sound off a fight bell (ding ding), and at the time of Rush’s passing Dan renamed that bell the Rush Limbaugh Bell out of respect for the late legendary host.
Westwood One President Suzanne Grimes said, “Dan is passionate and relatable, with a natural ability to connect with his audience. Dan has been on a meteoric rise since his podcast launched in 2019, and we look forward to watching his star continue to soar.”
“Every conservative I know, everyone has had that Rush Limbaugh moment where they were listening and heard an idea for the first time ever,” he told “Fox & Friends.”
Dan was hit with a health scare of his own and he revealed it late last year in September when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma and the discovery of a tumor.
The radio host underwent surgery to have a tumor removed from his neck. He shared that news on Twitter in early October.
“Thank you all for your kind words & well wishes,” Bongino wrote. “I’m out of surgery & I feel good. They removed the entire tumor from my neck. The bad news is, it looks like lymphoma. The good news is, there are treatments options. Either way, it’ll be okay. Thank you all for your support.”
Twitter leftists of course wished him ill will because they are evil people.
At the time Bongino said, “We don’t know what it is. It’s in a very weird spot in my neck near my carotid artery, near vocal cords and things, and it is big. It’s 7 centimeters … It’s scary.”
This is a huge thing for the conservative movement as well. Bongino is a very likable guy, he’s smart, down to earth, a family man, and conservative to the bone. His show will be a boost to the movement especially when he gets a nationwide audience.
Here’s something the Left won’t brag about. When you run your state with bad policies that make people so angry, depressed, or fearful of what their future will look like, there are consequences. Part of the consequences is people vote with their feet. They move out of your state and head to states that make life worth living in. In other words, people leave high-taxed, high regulation states for low-taxed, low regulation states. There are a number of other reasons, but those are the top two for people deciding where to live.
If the number of people leaving or moving into your state continues to grow, there are political consequences as well.
For example, Florida and Texas are set to gain congressional seats during the decennial redistricting process, and California and New York are going to each lose one congressional seat, according to the US Census Bureau.
On Monday, the Census Bureau released the decennial state population and congressional apportionment totals. This is the report that outlines how many districts each state will have for the next ten years. This means the red states are going to have more seats, while the blue states will have fewer. Since the number of congressional seats in a state is based on how many people live in the state, gaining and losing populations helps or hurts a state’s representation.
And that’s not all. The data also determines the number of Electoral College votes each state will have until 2032, and determines how federal grant money is distributed to each state for schools, roads, and other stuff.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic and former President Donald Trump’s attempt to exclude non-citizens from the census count, which he ultimately failed to do, the report was delivered on Monday instead of its scheduled date back in December.
During the bureau’s presentation, they revealed that the official US population is now 331,449,281. Southern and Western states grew faster than midwest and northeast states.
Florida will get one additional congressional seat upping its total to 28 and 30 electoral votes.
Thanks to the number of Americans escaping California, Texas will get two additional congressional seats, upping its total to 38 and its number of electoral votes jumps up to 40.
Colorado, Montana, North Carolina, and Oregon are all set to add one congressional seat. Montana doubled its number of seats from one to two and Democrats are hoping that will give them a chance to compete there, but it will all depend on how the districts are drawn.
Republicans will have the advantage in the redistricting. In states like Florida, North Carolina, and Texas, Republicans have total control over the process of redistricting to 84 seats that could be in play.
Unlike in Montana, where there is a bipartisan commission to draw its redistricting, Colorado has an independent commission doing their gerrymandering with the hopes of being less partisan. Ha!
Though Democrats control the gerrymandering process in Oregon, they reached an agreement with Republicans to give them more say in the process. Ha!
For the first time in its history as a state, California is going to lose a seat thanks to all the people who escaped to Texas. Texans are just hoping and praying that now that those transplants found a better home, they don’t vote the same way they did in California. “Don’t California my Texas!” David Harris Jr is heard saying from time to time. That’s what happens when your governor is a jerk. California is the wealthiest and poorest state in the union, with nearly a quarter of its residents living in poverty.
New York is also about to lose a congressional seat, dropping its number of congressional seats from 29 to 28. And no, the rumor this is happening because of all the coronavirus deaths on Governor Andrew Cuomo’s watch is not true. It’s because the political leadership in that state is so awful too many people voted with their feet and moved to Florida. “Don’t New York my Florida!” says Dan Bongino from time to time.
This data that was released is the preliminary outlook with the more detailed counts for redistricting coming sometime in September. All eyes are on the House as the Democrats have the thinnest majority in modern history. How the states with changes do their redistricting could tip the balance of power in the house. Wouldn’t it be great if the Republicans took back the majority in the House do that they can block many of the god-awful things the Biden administration and congressional Democrats are trying to do?
Dan Bongino often says on his great podcast show that the Republicans are not the answer to all of your problems, but the Democrats most certainly are the cause of all of your problems.
Blatant hypocrisy flourishes among the Democratic Party elites, and they never really had to care about getting caught because they have an entire sympathetic mainstream news media that stopped reporting news a long time ago that runs interference for them.
Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) recently traveled to Hennepin County, Minnesota and told protesters that if the jury on the form Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s murder trial didn’t come back with the verdict in her words, “Guilty, guilty, guilty” they needed to stay out in the streets and “get more confrontational.”
There are now documents that show the California Democrat asked for police protection during her trip. The travel logs that were published by Townhall show Waters asked for protection from US Capitol Police for her trip from the DC swamp to Brooklyn Center, describing the trip as a “moderate” risk factor.

So the woman who constantly trashes police as if all cops are bad and wants to defund the police asked for police protection. So it’s only you and me who won’t get police protection, but Waters and the other political elites will as blatant hypocrisy continues to flourish.
Waters told a crowd of protesters on Saturday that she will accept no other option than a “guilty, guilty, guilty” verdict for Chauvin, who had been charged with third-degree murder, second-degree murder, and manslaughter. Chauvin pleaded not guilty to all charges. The jury convicted Chauvin on all three charges Tuesday afternoon.
“We’re looking to see if all of the talk that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd, if nothing does not happen, then we know that we’ve got to not only stay in the street, but we’ve got to fight for justice,” Waters said.
Waters’ inciting rhetoric was criticized by presiding Judge Peter Cahill who advised Chauvin’s defense attorney after declining to declare a mistrial claiming her comments could have prejudiced the jury.
“I’m aware of the media reports. I’m aware that Congresswoman Waters was talking specifically about this trial, and about the unacceptability of anything less than a murder conviction, talked about being confrontational,” the judge said. “But you can submit the press articles about that. This goes back to what I’ve been saying from the beginning. I wish elected officials would stop talking about this case, especially in a manner that is disrespectful to the rule of law and to the judicial branch and our function.”
Cahill also asked that elected officials to stop commenting on the pending case.
“I think if they want to give their opinions, they should do so in a respectful, and in a manner that is respectful to the Constitution, to respect the co-equal branch of government. Their failure to do so I think is abhorrent, but I don’t think it has prejudiced this, with additional material that would prejudice this jury.”
Maxine Waters and a majority of members of her party gave up respecting our Constitution a long time ago. Just listen to their words and watch their actions. They only invoke it when a clause here or there is useful in their purpose to destroy it.
After being pressed on Cahill’s statement about her comments potentially being grounds for an appeal, Waters said, “Oh no, no they didn’t.”
Republicans also criticized Waters for her interfering in the trial.
Greene filed the resolution after pressing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to expel Waters on Sunday, accusing the California congresswoman of being a “criminal” for inciting violence with her comments after she crossed state lines to join Black Lives Matter protesters in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota for the accidental fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright.
On Tuesday, New York City Police Commissioner Dermot Shea had some words for Waters over her comments.
“I think it’s incredibly reckless. I even have stronger feelings but I’ll keep them to myself,” Commissioner Shea said.
A second female accuser has come forward to allege that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed her. Charlotte Bennett, 25, told the New York Times that the Democratic governor asked her inappropriate questions about her sex life.
The former aide to the governor claimed that last spring Cuomo sexually harassed her.
“I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared,” Bennett told the Times. “And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job.” That is classic sexual harassment.
Bennett, a Hamilton College graduate, told Cuomo that she was scheduled to give a speech at the school to students about her experience as a survivor of sexual assault.
“The way he was repeating, ‘You were raped and abused and attacked and assaulted and betrayed,’ over and over again while looking me directly in the eyes was something out of a horror movie,” Bennett texted to a friend. “It was like he was testing me.”
Bennett, who founded a sexual misconduct task force at Hamilton College, alleges that Cuomo was “grooming” her. Creepy.
The former aide talked about the time she was alone in Cuomo’s office when he asked her to take some dictation, and the governor allegedly asked her some very intimate questions concerning her personal life. She alleges that Cuomo asked her if she was romantically involved with someone, if she was monogamous in her relationships, and if she had ever had sex with older men. Not a very subtle guy is he?
Bennett texted a friend about the incident, describing it as “like the most explicit it could be.”
She alleges that Cuomo revealed to her he was lonely and said he wanted “a girlfriend, preferably in the Albany area.”
“He asked me if I believed if age made a difference in relationships and he also asked me in the same conversation if I had ever been with an older man,” Bennett told the Times in the interview which was published Saturday night.
The 25-year-old alleges that he let her know “he’s fine with anyone above the age of 22.” Meanwhile, Andrew Cuomo is 63 years old.
Bennett said when she talked about getting a tattoo, the governor suggested that she get it placed on her buttocks so people couldn’t see the tattoo if she wore a dress. Again, subtly is not an arrow in this creep’s quiver.
She is the second former aide of Governor Cuomo who is accusing him of sexual harassment. We reported back in December when former Cuomo aide Lindsey Boylan accused the governor of sexually harassing her, and on Wednesday she took to social media and came out with details of her story.
“Today I am telling my story. I never planned to share the details of my experience working in the Cuomo administration, but I am doing so now in hopes that it may make it easier for others to speak their own truth.”
And it’s not a pretty story. She starts the piece off with a quote from the governor, “Let’s play strip poker.”
She went on to write, “Governor Andrew Cuomo has created a culture within his administration where sexual harassment and bullying is so pervasive that it is not only condoned but expected. His inappropriate behavior toward women was an affirmation that he liked you, that you must be doing something right. He used intimidation to silence his critics. And if you dared to speak up, you would face consequences.”
Boylan said Cuomo, kissed her on the lips without consent and that he harassed her for years with inappropriate touching and making lewd comments.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said an independent investigation into the accusations against Cuomo is necessary. That’s always suggested by fellow Democrats because independent investigations take a long time to complete, and then the story is considered old and not worth publishing anymore.
Charlotte Bennett retweeted Boylan’s post alleging Cuomo sexually harassed her, adding, “For those wondering what it’s like to work for the Cuomo admin, read @LindseyBoylan’s story.”
If you have been following the Andrew Cuomo saga and have been witnessing his downfall right before your eyes, you might be thinking that the timing of two women coming out against the governor for sexual harassment is a bit suspicious. On the face of it, it is. However, aren’t we told by liberals and feminists that women who are sexually harassed by men in the workplace are too frightened to speak out? Wouldn’t victims of a very powerful man like the governor of New York be terrified to come out and admit the things these two women now alleged?
Dan Bongino has a phrase he uses all the time: “Start dancing!” On his very popular podcast – I have never missed an episode – Bongino explained what he means by that. There is an old theory called the “dancers theory” and it goes like this. When you’re at a function and there is music and there’s a dance floor and nobody’s on the dance floor it’s because nobody wants to be that first person to break the ice. And then some guy goes up on the floor and starts dancing and he’s the one making an idiot out of himself in front of everyone. It’s not that guy who gets the rest of the people who want to dance up onto the dance floor. No, what happens is people wait for the second person or couple to join the first guy on the dance floor. Once that second person or couple join in with the first guy, then the floodgates open and everybody goes on to the dance floor.
The same thing happens in many situations in life. People don’t generally want to be the first person to make a move, but once the trend starts, then the floodgates open. Lindsey Boylan was the first one on the dance floor, but then the ever-important second person, Charlotte Bennett, joined in. The time is now. Ladies who used to work for this creep of a governor, start dancing!
After the shocking presidential election theft/loss, the conservatives are going to have to change up tactics. The Woke Supremacy was able to shut down conservatives who investigated election irregularities by labeling them as conspiracy theories that lead to physical violence. The Woke news media and Woke social media tech giants were in on it lending legitimacy to a Biden win. Even though most people know what really happened in the 2020 election showing legitimacy is what the Democrats fought for after the election theft, which we now know was a coordinated theft thanks to Time magazine’s bragging about it.
The very first thing that needs to be done differently is how our elections are held. For decades Democrats have come up with all kinds of gourmet recipes for how people vote, each one of them rife with fraud. Republican-controlled state legislatures must close all election laws and regulations that allow for even the tiniest exploit for fraud. The best way to do that is to throw out the Brad Raffenspergers and like-minded RINOs who want to cut deals with Democrats so that they feel good about themselves and get honest state and county officials overseeing elections. What happened in 2020 was a horrific disgrace. Even in states that are run by Republican legislatures like in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Georgia the county level officials were all run and controlled by Democrats and that’s how all of the irregularities that were witnessed took place.
An even bigger problem that must be dealt with is how the Left organizes its attacks by shutting conservative voices down and thereby taking away any credibility. They own and control the mainstream news media and social media, academia, the courts, and the corporate world on Wall Street. Because we have morals and they do not, because we adhere to the rule of law and they do not, because we still believe in a Constitutional republic and they do not make it all much more difficult for us and we naturally have to work much harder than they do. It’s not enough for American conservatives to sit around and gripe about how unfair it is that the system is rigged because that doesn’t solve anything. No one is listening but conservatives and no one cares but conservatives and since they own everything that matters for public opinion complaining does nothing.
All of the leftist power moguls already mentioned have labeled any exposure of their crimes and wrongdoing as “misleading information,” “Russian disinformation,” or “conspiracy theories.” We watched them do this and it becomes frustrating when they are all working on the same page and can get a dismissive response out like that in seconds.
The Left uses conspiracy theories to lump in with any genuine criticisms of their wrongdoing. At this point for the Woke crowd, when one of them labels something as a conspiracy theory or misinformation or misleading information it’s instantly dismissed. They don’t even care about the details, they just believe it and move on.
The tech tyrants are using the fact that they are private corporations working under the Telecommunications Decency Acts Section 230 and so far they are winning that argument, mainly because the politicians are trying to decide do they love the law and free speech more than the money they’re getting from the tech tyrants. They are now the town square and though there is precedence that a private town is considered a government, for now, we just have to be smarter than them.
It’s getting exponentially worse as they first targeted influencers like Alex Jones and David Harris jr – yes, Facebook once deplatformed his page for speaking truth – because they wanted to get rid of them. Then they started silencing the president of the United States by lying saying he was spreading misinformation about Joe Biden which was clearly not misinformation. The next step is they are going to cancel anyone who admits they voted for Trump. The Fake News media, which now consists of about 95 percent of news outlets, are blocking the truth from getting out and the tech tyrants are kicking conservatives off their platforms and making certain that we can’t even run our own platforms such as Amazon that kicked Parler off their web services for violating their terms of agreement which was only that they are a free speech entity. The message they are silently sending is “we attack conservatives and the Democrats make sure our bottom line rises.”
The Left figured out how to dismiss any questions about the election as conspiracy theories. I know it’s maddening to hear news anchors labeling legitimate points about elections laws that were broken by state officials as conspiracies and it’s frustrating to have your posts on social media labeled as misinformation when you know darn right well what you posted is a fact. The point here is we have to defeat these dismissals. As bad as they are it’s working. Not all Americans are as political as you the reader. They only know what’s going on by their news and what they see on social media. They’re not bad people and they’re not stupid. They’re just living their lives and are fed false information about conservative information. And that has to be defeated.
One of the easiest ways to defeat them is to point out what they labeled as conspiracy theories in the past that turned out later to be completely accurate. You may think what’s the point because they know they’re lying when they label conservative speech as conspiracy theories, but they’re not your target audience. You are never going to convince the people labeling conservative speech as misleading or conspiracies. They’re in on the big lie! Your target audience is made up of the people who will read the posts, people who are not out in front making noise and arguing politics, but, rather, are there to learn what’s happening, what’s going on. Trust me, when someone like that sees the labeling and then reads the rebuttals of how past conservative information was also labeled conspiracy theories but turned out to be true, it will affect them the right way. Anyone with an IQ in the triple digits will be able to figure it out for themselves.
Once conservatives get used to fighting back by pointing out past information that was labeled as conspiracy theories were later proven to be accurate then it becomes the time when conservatives start labeling the Left’s labeling truth as conspiracy theories as the actual conspiracy theories. The real conspiracy is the labeling of fact as a conspiracy. Sounds ridiculous, right? Well, it’s their playing field for now and that’s how you beat them at their own game.
Conservatives can take a real lesson from president Donald Trump. he never let them get away with labeling him. he came back and labeled them with funny negative names that had some truth to them and they stuck. Regular conservatives can do the same thing.
Trump supporters have to learn when to create a narrative. The Left are masters at this as the recent and much talked about Time article we reported on reveals. Whether they use hashtags on social media, emails of talking points, or whatever, it’s been working for them. Now conservatives have to come up with tactics to make it work for them. If you think this is silly or beneath you then please get out of the fight, because we need to win this fight, otherwise we really really do lose our country. Stop wasting time on stupid narratives brought up by the Left to bait you in. Trust only reliable conservative courses like Newsmax, OANN, Dan Bongino’s podcast, and others. Go to their playgrounds and see what they’re politically pushing and then pounce on it with facts. Put the Left on defense while conservatives stay on offense. Yeah, it will take time and hard work, but no battle is worth winning without a real fight.
John Matze, the CEO of Parler has been fired by the social media company’s board. Since that happened Matze has given interviews where he has changed his story from one night to the next day. At first, he said that he was the free speech advocate and that he was fighting the other three owners, which according to Dan Bonino, one of the other Parler owners, is a lie. The next day, Thursday of this week, Matze did an interview with the New York Times where he changed his story and said he was all for cracking down on Qanan types, terrorists, and hate speech. Again, Bongino says that was a lie.
Full Disclosure: I have never missed an episode of Dan Bongino’s podcast. I believe he is the most informed person in podcasts for conservative political issues. If I sound biased it’s because I am, and after listening to him for so long I know I can trust what he says is truthful. Take that for what it’s worth, but it’s how I feel.
Matze announced his departure in a memo to colleagues saying that the decision to leave the social media company, which was favored by supporters of former President Donald Trump, was out of his hands.
“On January 29, 2021, the Parler board controlled by Rebekah Mercer decided to immediately terminate my position as CEO of Parler. I did not participate in this decision,” he said. “I understand that those who now control the company have made some communications to employees and other third parties that have unfortunately created confusion and prompted me to make this public statement.”
Amazon removed Parler from its cloud-hosting services claiming that the platform was not effectively moderating and removing violent material, including “egregious content” dealing with the Capitol riot that happened on January 6.
Matze said in the memo that he has “met constant resistance to my product vision, my strong belief in free speech and my view of how the Parler site should be managed” over the past few months.
If you watch to Dan Bongino’s podcast about this issue you get a completely different story.
“For example, I advocated for more product stability and what I believe is a more effective approach to content moderation,” Matze wrote. “I have worked endless hours and fought constant battles to get the Parler site running but at this point, the future of Parler is no longer in my hands.”
Bongino has disputed Matze’s version of the story releasing a six-minute rebuke quickly after news broke of the CEO’s firing, claiming, “The story you’re hearing, unfortunately, is not correct.”
“This is an outrageous attack against people who have done nothing but work day and night to get this site back up and to fight back against these cancel culture goons,” he said. “To get knee-capped like this by someone we trusted is a disgrace. He is no white knight in this story.”
Bongino pointed out that the free speech vision of the company was not Matze’s but was of the other three owners. He said that Matze didn’t share the vision and he most certainly was not committed to product stability. He said Matze made “some really bad decisions” behind the scenes. For example, Bongino said in his podcast from Thursday that Matze was warned over and over again about not doing business with leftist companies that are not for free speech, companies like Amazon which canceled Parler’s access to their web services. Parler fought back and sued Amazon in court and the judge ruled in Amazon’s favor.
A spokesperson for Amazon Web Services told the Washington Examiner at the time that this “was not a case about free speech” and accused Parler of “consistently” violating its terms of service by allowing violent content to be published on the platform.
The problem here is the definition of free speech. Advocates of Constitutional free speech understand that most speech is free under the First Amendment, while some speech is not free. Examples would be threatening someone or lying about someone and the lies harm them somehow. Parler was engaging in content moderation to get rid of speech that was considered illegal, but they were still a free speech entity. Amazon, Google, Facebook, Twitter, and others consider speech that politically offends the Left or speech that exposes the Left as misleading and not free speech.
Parler made the argument that Amazon’s refusal of service was violating anti-trust laws, was unfair and politically biased since Twitter still features violent content and Amazon did not remove them from their platform.
Bongino has said that the reason it is taking Parler longer to get back up and running than expected is that the owners are serious about remaining a free speech company and it will take longer to find services that will allow a free speech company. This is what we’ve come to. In 2021 it is difficult to find tech companies that believe in free speech.
On Monday, the soviet-style tech giant Twitter’s stock price dropped more than 12% on the first day of trading since the social media tyrant kicked President Donald Trump off of its platform Friday night. The stock price decline wiped out $5 billion from Twitter’s market capitalization.
Last Friday, Twitter’s honchos announced they were permanently suspending Trump’s account “due to the risk of further incitement of violence” after supporters of the president stormed the US Capitol in protest of the 2020 election results. In the months preceding, Trump had frequently taken to Twitter to argue that the election was fraudulent.
“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” Twitter said.
The fact of the matter is the president did not incite violence at all. On the contrary, Trump said at end of the rally that took place on January 6, “and now you will march peacefully to the Capitol and let your voices be heard.” There was no incitement rhetoric. He didn’t tell people to attack anything.
Twitter’s move was the first time that the social media company had ever banned a head of state.
Conservatives argued that the ban was an unprecedented attack on free speech; leftists celebrated it as “the most important moment in the history of social media.” However, on Monday, investors expressed their own concerns, putting the social media company’s ticker price under pressure.
Twitter’s stock, according to Yahoo! Finance opened down about 10% before spiraling down to as low as $45.17 per share, or 12.3 percent down. Twitter stock came back over several hours to end the day down 6.4 percent.
That early drop wiped out over $5 billion from the company’s market capitalization, according to Business Insider.
Trump’s account showed more than 88 million followers, which made it one of the most popular accounts on the site, and his activity on the account over the years generated a lot of traffic for the platform. People either loved Trump or hated him on Twitter, and either way, many people were drawn to go onto the platform just to see what he was saying and how others were reacting to what he was saying.
Twitter was a useful tool for the president because he could speak directly to the people without having his message filtered by the lying leftists in the Fake News media. That’s why the Left hated him on Twitter. Up until social media, the mainstream news media was how you heard what the president was saying, outside of a direct speech he gave. Either way, the mainstream media always filtered what a president said, especially Republican presidents. Social media allowed Trump to speak to the people without the news media twisting his words. They would twist his words anyway but at least the people were able to go back to his Twitter account and read what he really said.
That drop in the stock price represents investors who are concerned that Twitter may be less competitive, especially if supporters of the president decided to leave the platform. So far Dan Bongino, Rush Limbaugh, and others have dropped their accounts in solidarity with the president, and they collectively had millions of followers. Many of those millions of followers will also drop their accounts, or they will stop visiting the site as often. Fewer people on the site generate fewer sales leads for advertisers. Fewer sales for advertisers mean less ad space purchased and that means less profits for the company.
Conservatives have felt that Big Tech companies like Twitter unfairly censor conservative voices and ideas for a long time. And they are not wrong. Leftist-run social media companies like Facebook and Twitter have been censoring conservative speech for some time now, but in 2020 they took it to new levels. They blatantly censored critical information that people needed to make informed decisions for the 2020 elections.
A lot of conservatives started moving over to Parler, which is a free speech alternative to the likes of Twitter. And it seems that the leftist tech giants aren’t complacent with getting rid of conservatives from their own platforms, they are now attacking conservative platforms to silence them in their own environments. Apple and Google removed Parler’s app from their sites, and Amazon shut down Parler’s hosting services claiming they lacked content moderation. Bongino revealed that Parler has policies for content moderation and they do moderate posts made there that violate their community standards, but the tech tyrants just want them gone.
We reported that Parler sued Amazon over antitrust violations on Monday.
Facebook and Google stock also took a hit on Monday, not as hard as Twitter, but still enough to send a message. The problem with tech tyrants is that they now have so much money they no longer care about making profits over forcing their political ideology on their platforms. They care more about pushing their ideology than earning money. The stockholders have already sent a message and that message will get stronger if they continue with the same practice. Twitter’s management team could become its own demise if they don’t wise up.
A video of a woman who is refusing to wear a face mask in a CVS pharmacy store is going viral on social media, with many suggesting the rebellious woman is articulating an increasingly common sentiment among the public.
The scene took place, in a Los Angeles CVS pharmacy and kicked off when the woman was refused service for failing to comply with state Coronavirus regulations. So, she’s already in the store, and the sheeple behind the counter think refusing her service is going to protect them?
BAAA! Stay in the pen. It’s safer in there. BAAA!
Californians have been ordered that they must wear face coverings in public or high-risk settings, including while shopping, taking public transit or seeking medical care.
Think about this, about 90 percent of Americans across the fruited plains have been wearing masks every time they go outside and inside businesses. Yet we’re told that the virus is getting worse, that more and more people are coming down with it. So then, how come none of the numskulls in charge have ever asked the question “do masks really work?”
At one point a woman confronted the lady and said she was going to call the police, and the fed up lady said, “Go ahead, they can’t arrest me, because there is no law.” She is absolutely correct. The overwhelming majority of jurisdictions in the US have not had their legislatures create laws that force people to lock down, to socially distance, or to wear masks. We live in a Constitutional republic, which is guaranteed to all states by the US Constitution and that means that the draconian measure that governors and mayors have taken so far that do not have laws to back up their enforcement are unconstitutional.
On a side note, I went into a Best Buy last month to do some Christmas shopping, and they had reinstituted the policy that you have to stand in line six feet social distanced from each other just to get into the store, and you had wait until they would allow you to enter. That line to get inside the store proper was about 25 feet long. When I walked into the store there was an older man in front of me and there was one person in front of him who was at the front of that line, so there were only 3 of us in line. I said immediately said, “Oh they’re doing this again?” The man turned to me and said, “Yes they are and we’re supposed to be six feet away from each other and I would prefer that you move back 6 feet. I turned around to look behind me and realized that six feet meant I would be standing outside in the cold. So I turned back to the man and said, “I’m sorry, but I’m not going anywhere, and you should move up, because you’re about 18 feet away from the guy in front of you.” The guy turned around and looked at the end of the line in front of him and realized I was right, so he started moving forward. It was at that point that I asked him. “Do you really think that masks work?” He said to me, “Yes, I do.” So then I asked him if h8e was wearing a mask and I am wearing a mask why was he being such a crybaby about social distancing? “You just said you believe masks work, and we’re both wearing masks, so what’s your reasoning?” He turned away from me to face the front of the line, and we never spoke again. Good riddance.
My point here is that the useful idiots of the government tyrants don’t have an answer when you confront them. They are just repeating what they hear like good little sheeple. BAAA! Stay in the pen. It’s safer in there. BAAA!
But I digress.
In the video the woman said, “I’m not saying COVID’s not real.” She added, “I’m just saying, I’m not sick. I’m not sick and asymptomatic spread has been shown to be a myth, so why am I going to be treated like a sick person?”
The woman is 100% correct. For the first time in our known history the government is forcing healthy people into conditions, draconian conditions. Normally, and throughout history, we only quarantined, locked down, forced masks, etc. on sick people. The myth of asymptomatic spread, which the top epidemiologists in the world say is extremely rare, is what the tyrants are using to frighten people into compliance with their lock down rules.
“Do you know that there have been fewer deaths in 2020 than in 2019? All they’ve done is recategorize all the deaths. This is not what they’re telling us it is. It’s a lie. This is a lie, I’m telling you.
“It’s a lie and everyone’s buying it. And it will go on, and on, and on as long as they feed us this lie and we comply with it, and I am done. Tonight, I’ve reached a breaking point, I’m done. I know I’m not reaching any of you in here, I don’t care.”
BAAA! Stay in the pen. It’s safer in there. BAAA!
The woman went on to say: “I hope someone in here hears me and feels empowered.”
The thing I love about this woman is that she knows what she’s talking about and yet she doesn’t appear to come off like a political activist of any sort. She’s just an average American citizen who is tired of being treated like she’s going to kill our entire population unless she conforms to the restrictions that a bunch of lying politicians have foisted onto our society. And God Bless her for that!
Dan Bongino talks about something he calls “the dance theory.” What this is about is if you’re at a wedding for example, and the dance floor is empty, it’s not the first guy who goes out on the dance floor that makes a difference. It’s always the second guy who joins in. The second person who starts dancing legitimizes the dance floor and then you start to see everyone else get up and enter the dance floor. Let’s hope that this woman was the first one and that there are more brave people who are going to stand up to the tyranny and say screw this, we are Americans, we have rights!
It started with Democrat tyrants exploiting the virus to defeat Donald Trump in the 2020 election. Mark my words, that’s why they were making Americans as miserable as possible. The first step was they wanted to make people miserable enough to hate Donald Trump, because you just knew that they were going to blame everything on him. And they did. And there are a lot of knuckleheads out there who believed them. The second thing they did what’s to defund the Republican Party for the election. What do I mean by that? The Democrats in charge of states and cities shut down small businesses, which are the backbone of support for the Republican Party. They shut down those small business and that removed all the contributions in donations to Republicans and Republican causes that come from small business owners, because Republicans traditionally support small business enterprises being the backbone of our economy. Yet, at the same time they helped their rich billionaire liberal friends. For example, Jeff Bezos, the owner of Amazon.com and the Washington Post, claimed that he made an additional $70 Billion from the COVID lockdowns. That’s because when your local stores were locked down by the conniving Democrat tyrants, people got their stuff from websites like Amazon.
Now that the election is over and they believe that Joe Biden has one, the dictators on the left are morphing their COVID hyperbolic scare messages to push for what they call a “Global Reset,” which is nothing more than the chance to never let a good crisis going to waste by forcing socialist mandates on the people of the world. If nothing else it is exposing how darkly evil these Democrats really are.
If enough people start to stand up like this brave woman, what are they going to do? Are the tyrants going to arrest and incarcerate over a hundred million or so Americans who have said I’ve had enough, I’m fed up, and I’m not taking it anymore?
Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino was discussing Joe Biden this past week and he decided to let his listeners in on some inside information on the relationship between Joe Biden and Barack Obama.
Bongino still has friends inside the Secret Service who tell him that Obama can’t stand Joe Biden.
Even though he supports him just so that President Trump does not have four more years in which to erase the Obama legacy (Some say travesty) from the history books. (Plus if Joe Becomes president, consensus would say that Obama is no longer the worst president of all time.)
Bongino says that Obama thinks that Biden is a joke. Not that he thinks that Biden is a bad guy, he just thinks Biden is a joke.
It’s nothing personal, it’s just that Obama thinks that Biden is a moron, an opinion shared by many millions of Americans. He definitely has chutzpah, having Hunter, a Chinese businessman attest to Joe’s honesty at the DNC convention.
Bongino says that is also an opinion that Obama’s crew also have of the former vice president. Joe would put the vice back in the presidency. Obama’s crew thinks that Biden is an utter moron.
I keep a large network of friends. Some of them I remember from a prior line of work. I’m not talking about law enforcement people either. I’m talking about some people I know who are marginally involved in politics. Who are basically involved for the money, not so much the ideology, so they’re happy to talk. The Obama team thinks Biden is an idiot. Hence in his (Obama’s) speech last night, why Obama in 15 minutes barely mentioned Biden.
Far left wing site Politico has been able to confirm what Bongino says using their own independent sources.Alex Thompson, the Politico article author was a guest oin the the Tucker Carlson Show.
He told Tucker that he has heard the very same stories about the rift between Obama and Biden.
He said that over eight years, the Obama camp looked down at the Biden camp and that they still do right up until today.
