President Trump’s popularity among voters has remained relatively consistent over the past couple of years. The haters on the left are baffled by this.
They don’t like it, but I think they’ve accepted the loyalty to and adoration of him by his hard-core supporters. It’s the others they don’t get. Why hasn’t he lost these voters?
Speaking for myself and many like me, we haven’t abandoned him because we’ve successfully been able to separate his policies from his antics.
And they don’t like this either, but the left may also be coming to accept this phenomenon.

I’m not sure why, but I am feeling especially Christmassy this season. So I thought, rather than write about Trump, the Democrats, or something else political, I would put that on hold this week.
I want to talk about American generosity. It’s something I believe is unique to us. Americans are the most generous people on Earth and maybe throughout all time. And that generosity appears to amplify during the holiday season.

CONSERVATIVES BURNED BY TWITTER FLOCK TO NEW PLATFORM
After an unexpected surge of new users caused some technical difficulties earlier in the week, the new app that some are calling the answer to the ongoing battle between conservatives and Twitter is back up and running, promising to support free expression online.
The platform, called Parler News, is named for the French word meaning “to speak,” and many are saying it is the next logical move for those who wish to do so freely without fear of being silenced.
The following article hits close to home as I was recently denied a post boost by Facebook because it was deemed a political ad.

Not ‘Too Big To Fail’: Why Facebook’s Long Reign May Be Coming To An End
Sears and Blockbuster fell because neither was able to adapt and grow with its consumer base. Is Facebook making the same mistakes?
Over the last several years, Facebook has gone from facilitating the free flow of information to inhibiting it through incremental censorship and account purges. What began with the ban of Alex Jones last summer has since escalated to include the expulsion of hundreds of additional pages, each political in nature. And as more people become wary of the social media platform’s motives, one thing is absolutely certain: we need more market competition in the realm of social media.

Yes – anti-gun liberal, U.K. nut-job Piers Morgan, who I now find I agree with more than less. Funny ole world isn’t it!
There’s only one winner in Taylor Swift and Scott Kelly’s gutless surrender to the howling Twitter mob – President Trump
Why, why, WHY?
Just when I thought you were the only sane celebrity left in this increasingly mad world of frenzied partisan bulls**t, you suddenly decide to go all ‘woke’ on me.
As you once sang: ‘Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart?’
Of course, we all know the answer.
Taylor Swift, who is hugely popular in middle America, hasn’t chosen this moment to abandon her very sensible apolitical stance and come out as a Democrat because she genuinely thought: ‘Oh, I must alienate half my audience today.’
And here I thought Canadians were such nice people.
from the Daily Mail:
A disgruntled bride-to-be has revealed she was forced to cancel her extravagant ‘fairytale’ wedding after her guests refused to pay $CAD 1,500 each to attend.
The Canadian bride, who is known only as ‘Susan’, was due to tie the knot with her childhood sweetheart in a lavish $CAD 60,000 ($46,020) wedding.
But the couple decided to call off the ceremony just four days before exchanging their vows after they struggled to foot the bill.
Taking to Facebook to explain their decision, the furious mother-of-one blamed her family and friends for the breakdown of her relationship as she vented her frustration in a lengthy post.
from the Blaze:
Twitter has been ‘shadow banning’ conservatives, but not liberals — here’s what that means
Some conservatives have had their reach and accessibility limited on Twitter, whereas their liberal Democrat counterparts have not been impacted on the platform, a Vice News investigation has revealed.
Type the names of certain conservative figures in the search bar, such as Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), for example, and the profile doesn’t automatically appear in the drop down results like most public figures do.

Instagram Censors Conservative Columnist For Saying: Planned Parenthood Kills More Blacks Than The KKK
Conservative columnist Ryan Bomberger, a black man who was adopted after being conceived in rape, dared to speak the truth about Planned Parenthood and abortion in general: it kills more black people than the KKK ever did. For that, Instagram censored him.
Writing for LifeNews, Bomberger claims that a meme he had created for #WorldPopulationDay in which he blasted Planned Parenthood for their killing of black children was censored by Instagram for supposedly violating “community guidelines.”
