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.

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.”

Video Podcast – Undecided Voters – Not Hardly

by: Brent Smith

Next time you see anything presented by the leftist press regarding undecided voters, it’s probably a damn lie. And although I have no proof of it all, I’ll bet my last dollar that these press outlets know exactly that.

Here are just 2 very recent examples.

NBC had a Biden Town Hall just last week, with “undecided” voters. And that’s how the network promoted it.

ABC had a Trump Town Hall event recently, also with “undecided” voters.

But a conservative news outlet did a little digging and found these undecided voters were far from it. They were leftist plants. read more

Trump is Now an Ethnic Cleanser!

by: Brent Smith

Let’s just assume this Yale professor is correct and somehow president Trump is really this evil genius that the left makes him out to be. And let’s assume he is in fact “using” the coronavirus as an “ethnic cleansing” tool. By any measure then, it would make Trump the WORST evil genius and the WORST and most incompetent ethnic cleanser in history!

Sheesh! He can’t even get that right, as the vast majority of Covid-19 deaths, that were actually Covid-19 deaths, are old white people.

It just goes to show that one can earn a doctorate in history, become a professor at Yale University and still be a leftist moron. Go figure.

WND Exclusive – Cloward and Piven will begin on election night

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Election night – it almost seems surreal to imagine that we may not have a victor that evening, or even days, weeks or months after.

I’m convinced more than ever that the left has known for months that Biden won’t defeat Trump – certainly not in a straight-up, fair election. So for months they’ve been setting up the apparatus of chaos to be prepared to act when a winner cannot be determined on Nov. 3.

Check that. If Trump doesn’t win decisively on election night – if it’s at all close, I now believe that the left’s minions in the mainstream media will, in lock step, not just state that it’s too close to call, but that Trump lost. read more

Not Exactly the Greatest Generation

From HotAir:

Nearly two-thirds of U.S. adults aged 18-39 don’t know how many Jews were killed in the Holocaust

But I wonder how much of this result is due to some special historical blind spot about the Holocaust and how much is due to the more basic fact that, ah, a lot of Americans are ignoramuses about history generally. read more

Oh No! Hobby Lobby in Trouble with Leftists

A potential boycott by anti-God, Anti-Trump leftists? Whatever will they do?

from the Blaze:

Mass outrage erupts at Hobby Lobby after blatant pro-Trump message appears on a store display

The message is pretty clear — but there’s no proof Hobby Lobby was behind it

Hobby Lobby is under fire after a decidedly pro-Trump display was recently discovered at one of its U.S. stores.

Social media users are calling for a boycott of the store, which has never shied away from its conservative roots. read more

Video Podcast – Orwell Predicted 2020 and it Wasn’t Hard

by: Brent Smith

Everyone knows the name George Orwell. Likely from his two most famous novels – 1984 about an all-powerful government and “Big Brother,” is watching you.

And Animal Farm, about the proletariat uprising of farm animals against their bourgeois overlord farmer.

He also penned some quite prescient quotes, from 80 or so years ago.

Allow me to analyze some of them.

As I go through them, I think you’ll agree that George Orwell as much as predicted the very happenings we are experiencing today. read more
