Executive Order to Drain the Swamp

from the American Thinker:

President Trump makes a bold move to weaken the Swamp’s power

Clay Bennett, Chattanooga Times Free Press

Thanks to President Trump’s latest executive order, there’s got to be a sense of panic across every administrative agency in Washington. Last week, President Trump issued an order bearing the innocuous title, “Executive Order on Creating Schedule F In The Excepted Service.” Behind that title lurks an earthquake that may finally break the permanent bureaucracy’s stranglehold on federal politics and bring more accountability to the American government. read more

Video Podcast – Another Foreign Policy Win – If this Poll is Right?

by: Brent Smith

The White House announced that the African nation of Sudan will be joining the growing coalition of Arab nations normalizing relations with Israel.

I’ve spoken about this topic before, not too long ago, but there’s already another update.

It’s only the greatest peaceful foreign policy achievement in the history of the world.

Trump’s poll numbers among likely black voters jumps to record high 46%. If this is true, the party’s over for Biden. read more

What does Andrew Cuomo have against the Jews?

from Daniel Horowitz at the Blaze:

While Andrew Cuomo uses law enforcement to target New York Jews, violent criminals terrorize subways

Andrew Cuomo uses government to harass New York’s Jews and target their inalienable rights

The Revolutionary War was fought, in the words of Sam Adams on Aug. 1, 1776, to determine whether “there shall be left to mankind an asylum on earth for civil and religious liberty.” The purpose of just governance is laid out plainly in our Constitution — to “secure the blessings of liberty,” but at the same time to “establish justice” and “ensure domestic tranquility.” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo flipped this founding principle upside down by using government to harass New York’s Jews and target their inalienable rights, while releasing criminals and blithely ignoring the violence on the streets. Indeed, revolutions have been fought over lesser abuses and usurpations. read more

Governor DeSantis is doing Something about State-ist Universities

We should no longer be surprised by the naked authoritarianism practiced by the radical left and their comrades in Academia. But when you read things like this, you still can help but be taken aback.

Thank heavens there are still conservative leaders that refuse to bow before these statists.

from Campus Reform:

Florida governor proposes ‘bill of rights’ to protect college students against strict COVID policies

  • Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has proposed a “bill of rights” to protect college students’ rights with respect to coronavirus guidelines.

Net Neutrality and the Fairness Doctrine will become the New Normal

by: Brent Smith

Hopefully there are still enough liberty loving, free-thinking Americans to prevent the unthinkable from happening – a democrat hostile takeover of government – the perfect storm of victory (by any means) of not only the presidency, but the Senate as well.

There aren’t words enough to describe the importance of this upcoming election to freedom/liberty loving constitutionalists.

One might think, well, that’s a bit melodramatic.

It may seem, but if we lose big this upcoming election, we conservatives will be staring at our demise. And it’s something that few conservatives are discussing, but it would have a greater negative impact than practically anything else.

Allow me to explain. read more

Don’t Give in to the Cancel Culture Mob

Paris Dennard for Prager University discusses the cancel culture mob. He gives example after example of leftists who were canceled due to one instance of sanity, either today, or even decades prior.

All it takes is just slip-up of a woke leftist, and it’s curtains. Whether one apologizes or not, appears contrite or not, won’t save you from the cancel culture mob.

If they find you, and they will, you will be canceled. So Dennard says, just don’t give in, don’t apologize or bend a knee toward the mob.

Twitter Says No More Outright Bans

Personally, I’m not buying this. I think Twitter is just banking on Biden winning, and then it’s back to business as usual, or likely much worse.

from the Daily Wire:

Twitter Reverses Course Following Widespread Outrage Over Censorship, Senators Announcing Subpoenas

Will Social Media Platforms Get What they Deserve

Or will it be All Show and No Go, as it’s always been?

by: Brent Smith

While I’m heartened to see the Senate appears serious about dragging these arrogant big tech CEO’s before a committee to testify to what the rest of us clearly see as brash, leftist partisanship by Twitter, Facebook, et al, I will continue to ask to what end.

Will something, can something finally be done about it, or are they simply too big and too powerful. Can the federal government finally crack down on these social media corporations and reclassify them as they are – publishers that make editorial decisions on what the public will see, rather than what they claim to be and what the government has categorized them as – free-speech, neutral forums/platforms.

I’m not an advocate for government interference – picking winners and losers, but that’s exactly has happened. These companies have enjoyed government mandated protection from liability for too long. This has to stop. And every year that goes by and nothing is done, these companies take a bit more editorial license until we get what we have now, a literal censorship board that controls what millions of America can and cannot see. These social media magnates have become the sole arbiters of what is fit to print.

The only way to stop this is to strip this government benefit from them. Otherwise, we can all but kiss conservative networking goodbye.

Republicans declare war on Facebook and Twitter censorship of New York Post, announce Senate hearings next week

‘What the hell is going on’

After Facebook and Twitter sparked outrage by censoring several New York Post reports on emails allegedly from Hunter Biden’s laptop, Republican lawmakers want Big Tech CEOs to testify in Congress and explain why the Post’s stories are being suppressed.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) formally requested on Thursday that the CEOs of Twitter and Facebook both appear before the U.S. Senate to testify on their companies’ individual decisions to censor the Post’s reports. The letters, written to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, invite the Big Tech bosses to testify before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism in a hearing called “Digital Platforms and Election Interference.”

Hawley’s letters announce an inquiry into whether Facebook and Twitter violated federal election law by suppressing the distribution of the New York Post story, “Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad.”

“As your company is no doubt aware, corporations are forbidden from contributing anything of value — financial or otherwise — to support the election of candidates for federal office,” each letter states.

 

The letter to Dorsey noted that Twitter “asymmetrically” applied its terms of service against the Post story and suspended the official Donald Trump presidential campaign account for sharing the article. The hearing “will also consider [Twitter’s] decision to double down on that potential violation by, on October 15, 2020, suppressing the Post‘s follow-up story.”

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and committee member Ted Cruz (R-Texas) also announced Thursday that the Senate Judiciary Committee will vote on Tuesday to serve Dorsey a subpoena to testify the following Friday. Cruz characterized Twitter’s actions as “election interference.”

In-Person Schooling for Illegals but not for Your Kids

from Daniel Horowitz at the Blaze:

Horowitz: DC allows illegal alien students preference in returning to in-person classes over most Americans

As part of a nationwide series of university student walkouts in protest of Republican President-elect Donald J. Trump’s proposed policy initiatives regarding immigration and the deportation of criminal undocumented immigrants, nearly a thousand students and faculty members at Rutgers University staged a rally and march in downtown New Brunswick, NJ on November 16, 2016. (Photo by Albin Lohr-Jones) *** Please Use Credit from Credit Field ***

Liberal city mayors have finally discovered that it was a mistake to close schools and that this virus is not dangerous to children. Well … not all children … only illegal aliens. Most American students will have to remain at home in the nation’s capital, while illegal alien children get to attend in-person classes.

So, whose country is this anyway? read more

WND Exclusive – Will we be forced to take a COVID vaccine?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Stop Forced COVID-19 Vaccinations : The John Birch Society

What Happened to My Body, My Choice?

Should the government – local, state or federal – have the power to force anyone to be vaccinated?

That’s a good question, and assuming President Trump is right and a COVID-19 vaccine is developed, the answer may be forced upon us – and I fear, due to the panic stoked by many regarding this virus, a mandate may follow.

Then it’s just a matter of whether a vaccine edict trumps our “unalienable rights,” granted us “by our Creator,” of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness,” and whether “Governments are [really] instituted among Men, to secure these rights,” or merely to order us around.

We don’t need to look hard to find examples of what may be in store. read more
