For a decade TransCanada’s management said that the Keystone XL pipeline would be built because it makes too much economic sense for America.
But, as @Greekfire23 points out this morning, “that’s not how we operate down here” because according to Reuters, “Joe Biden is planning to cancel the permit for the $9 billion Keystone XL pipeline project as one of his first acts in office, and perhaps as soon as his first day.”
The words “Rescind Keystone XL pipeline permit” appear on a list of executive actions likely scheduled for the first day of Biden’s presidency, according to an earlier report by the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.
Biden – who was vice president in the Obama administration when it rejected the project as contrary to its efforts to combat climate change – had earlier vowed to scrap the oil pipeline’s presidential permit if he became president. In 2015, Barack Obama axed the project saying Canada would reap most of the economic benefits…
China interfered in the 2020 presidential election and high-level CIA officials covered it up because they “disagreed with policies of President Donald Trump,” a bombshell new intelligence report has revealed. The damning intel report was released by Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe on Sunday.
The report reveals that Chinese Communist Party (CCP) operatives successfully meddled in the election.However, rather than act appropriately on the information, CIA management pressured lower-level analysts to discount their assessment.
In a letter transmitted to Congress, Ratcliffe alleges that analysts were forced to withdraw their support for the view that China had interfered with the election…
The principal of a Tennessee high school has been suspended from his duties for daring to criticize the unprecedented censorship enacted by Big Tech companies against President Donald Trump earlier this month.
Principal Barton Thorne of Cordova High School in Memphis had been speaking in a teleconference in which he condemned the riot at the US Capitol. Throne also slammed the censorship that followed the event, comparing Twitter and Facebook’s censorship to Joseph McCarthy’s sham accusations in the 1950’s.
“There have been times even in American history where a small group of people decided what you could hear. You think about “McCarthyism. If you don’t know about that, you can Google that or talk to your Social Studies teacher,” said Thorne.
“It’s what’s going on with Twitter and Facebook and Google and Apple, and their decision as private companies to filter and to decide what you, you hear and know about.”…
Guatemalan authorities estimated Saturday that as many as 9,000 Honduran migrants had crossed into Guatemala as part of an effort to form a new caravan to reach the U.S. border.
Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei issued a statement calling on Honduran authorities “to contain the mass exit of its inhabitants.” The migrants pushed past about 2,000 police and soldiers posted at the border Friday and Saturday, and most entered without showing the negative coronavirus test that Guatemala requires.
“The government of Guatemala regrets this violation of national sovereignty and calls on the governments of Central America to take measures to avoid putting their inhabitants at risk amid the health emergency due to the pandemic,” Giammattei’s statement continued…
Joe Biden will ‘immediately’ send a legislative package to Congress which would provide a pathway to citizenship for some 11 million illegal immigrants, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The bill would also provide a shorter pathway to citizenship for hundreds of thousands of people living in the United States under a temporary protected status and/or who qualify under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program who were brought into the US as children.
And in what the Times calls a “significant departure from many previous immigration bills under both Democratic and Republican administrations,” the Biden plan would contain zero provisions for stepped-up immigration enforcement and security measures, according to Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center Immigrant Justice Fund.
Both Biden and Kamala Harris have said their legislative proposal would include a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal aliens…
After years of dominating cable news, Fox News has found itself in an unfamiliar spot: the bottom of the ratings charts. Last week, for the first time since 2000, MSNBC and CNN topped Fox in viewership, capitalizing on huge numbers after the Georgia runoff and riots in DC.
According to ratings data, CNN “topped cable networks” with roughly 2.8 million viewers per day between January 4th and January 10th, with 4.2 million viewers in primetime. During that same time period, MSNBC had approximately 2.3 million viewers per day and 3.8 million in prime time.
Fox News, however, had just 1.7 million per day and 3.2 million in primetime. Yahoo Finance reported that “Newsmax, a smaller rival that has been promoted by President Trump, said it saw record ratings in primetime of 443,000 for the week…
Antifa supporter Daniel Alan Baker was arrested for plotting to murder Trump supporters and police on Inauguration Day. He trained in Syria in 2017 with the YPG, was featured on VICE, and in 2020 participated in the CHAZ insurrection in Seattle, per DOJ documents.
Baker posted links to CNN on his “Call to Arms” to kill Trump supporters and police officers on Inauguration Day. He wanted to stockpile AK-47s and build bombs in CHAZ district in Seattle to start “the revolution.”
Tallahassee WCTV had more on the arrest:
Tallahassee resident Daniel Baker was arrested Friday. Federal law enforcement alleges he encouraged violence against protesters expected to hold demonstrations at the Capitol starting Sunday. U.S. Attorney for Florida’s Northern District Lawrence Keefe told us earlier this week, law enforcement had been working to identify threats before they manifested…
John Weaver, a co-founder of the anti-Trump conservative group Lincoln Project, admitted Friday to sending several men sexually explicit messages and propositions for sex, according to a report.
Reports of his uninvited homosexual advances surfaced this week but Mr. Weaver, a longtime Republican operative, acknowledged the behavior Friday, according to Axios.
“To the men I made uncomfortable through my messages that I viewed as consensual mutual conversations at the time: I am truly sorry. They were inappropriate and it was because of my failings that this discomfort was brought on you,” Mr. Weaver told the news website.
The propositions sometimes were “coupled with offers of employment…
The oldest U.S. Marine, Dorothy Schmidt Cole, died of a heart attack at the age of 107 earlier this month, her daughter has confirmed.
Cole, whose maiden name was Dorothy Schmidt, was born on September 19, 1913, in the town of Warren in New York state and worked as a secretary for the Young Women’s Christian Association (YCWA) prior to enlisting, according to The Charlotte Observer.
She had travelled to Pittsburgh where she had hoped to volunteer for the Navy but at 4 foot 11 inches tall and with the nickname ‘half-pint,’ she did not meet the Navy requirements, AP reported.
Unfazed by this, she decided that she would learn how to fly a plane anyway and come back and persuade the Marine Corps to allow her to become a pilot after doing so, The Charlotte Observer added.
In July 1942, the Marine Corps Women’s Reserve was created…
With less than a week left in office, President Trump is declassifying a “massive trove” of FBI documents relating to Obamagate, including FBI documents “showing the Russia collusion story was leaked in the final weeks of the 2016 election in an effort to counteract Hillary Clinton’s email scandal,” reports Just The News
The documents could be released as early as Friday, and are said to include “FBI interviews and human source evaluation reports for two of the main informants in the Russia case, former MI6 agent Christopher Steele and academic Stefan Halper.”
According to government officials who spoke with Just The News, the internal FBI and DOJ documents pending release “detail significant flaws in the investigation…
Israel launched an air attack against Iranian-linked targets in Syria near the main border crossing to Iraq in the early hours of Wednesday, one of the biggest strikes yet in a campaign that has escalated in the Trump administration’s final weeks.
Israel has been stepping up strikes against Iranian targets in Syria, part of aggressive posture adopted before Joe Biden takes office next week in what could bring a reassessment of Trump’s “maximum pressure” policy on Iran.
Syrian news agency SANA and Syrian state media said Israel had struck sites in Al Bukamal, the Syrian city that controls the border checkpoint on the main Baghdad-Damascus highway. The highway is part of the main overground supply route linking Iran to its proxy fighters in Syria and Lebanon.
The Syrian reports also said Israeli strikes had hit areas in Deir al Zor province, where Iranian-backed militias and Iran’s Revolutionary Guards fighters have a heavy presence…
Had the mainstream media investigated like Project Veritas did, far more voter fraud would’ve been uncovered. Unfortunately, the MSM is comprised of liberals whose main goal was to get Trump out of the White House.

WOW! So far, over the last two trading periods, Facebook and Twitter have collectively wiped out $51.2 Billion in combined market value since the banning of the President of the United States from their platforms.
Meanwhile, the removal of Trump supporters from their platforms continues with no end in sight. This time, however, the big tech bullies who have been working for years to demote and remove conservative content from their platforms while simultaneously pretending to be unbiased social media platforms may have really stepped in it.
100PercentFedUp: Without any clear evidence of their claims, oligarchs Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, and Jack Dorsey,

The Jaguars reached an agreement Thursday to hire Urban Meyer as their next head coach, replacing Doug Marrone, the franchise announced. Meyer, a three-time national champion coach, met with owner Shad Khan for a second time on Wednesday and was seen exiting a plane at Cecil Airport in Jacksonville on Thursday.
From the start, Meyer was the Jaguars’ top target. He was the only candidate granted an in-person interview with Khan on his yacht last Friday in Miami.
”This is a great day for Jacksonville and Jaguars fans everywhere,” Khan said in a statement. ”Urban Meyer is who we want and need, a leader, winner and champion who demands excellence and produces results…
Amazon is selling “anatomically correct” dolls of children in their global marketplace that can be found while typing in “Full Size Sex Dolls” on their website’s search feature.
The item, Anano Realistic Reborn Baby Girl Doll, is described as a “cute anatomically correct girl.” It is not the only silicone-based child doll offered by Amazon to be enjoyed by perverts.
A Twitter user, Matriarch, noted that other child sex dolls were offered on Amazon for potential predators to buy. Unfortunately, Amazon is far from the only Big Tech entity that does little if anything to stop pedophiles from being served on their monopoly platform.
Big League Politics has reported on how pedophiles are allowed to discuss child rape on major social media platforms without any moderation:
Social media giant Twitter has quietly amended their terms of service to allow for “discussions related to… attraction towards minors” to be allowed on their platform. “Discussions related to child sexual exploitation as a phenomenon or attraction towards minors are permitted…
The Black Lives Matter activist who was seen storming the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 was charged, the Department of Justice said Thursday.
A new court filing says John Earle Sullivan, 26, told FBI agents last week that he was at the Capitol when the breach happened. He said he entered through a window that had been broken out. He also said he was present when Ashli Babbitt, an Air Force veteran, was shot dead by a U.S. Capitol Police officer as she tried to climb into the House Speaker’s Lobby through a window.
Sullivan showed agents some of the footage he captured inside the building…
MIT Professor Greg Chen has been arrested and charged with failing to disclose his connections to communist China to the U.S. Department of Energy.
The Justice Department made the announcement in a press release issued on Thursday.
“Since 2012, Chen has allegedly held various appointments with the PRC designed to promote the PRC’s technological and scientific development by providing advice and expertise – sometimes directly to PRC government officials – and often in exchange for financial compensation,” the DOJ announced.
“Since 2013, Chen allegedly received approximately $29 million of foreign funding, including $19 million from the PRC’s Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech),” they continued.
“Chen also allegedly failed to disclose to the IRS in his 2018 tax return that he maintained a bank account in the PRC with more than $10,000 in 2018,” the DOJ added…
As public health experts around the world issue warnings about new mutant strains of SARS-CoV-2, it appears a new variant has been isolated in Ohio, likely originating from somewhere in the Midwest.
One of these variants, dubbed the “Columbus strain,” has three gene mutations that haven’t previously been seen in other SARS-CoV-2 strains – the virus that causes COVID-19, according to a statement from The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. These mutations occur in the so-called spike protein of the virus, which enables the virus to bind to human cells more quickly.
This strain quickly became the dominant COVID strain variant in Columbus over a three-week period…
Gab CEO completely backed up President Trump’s Twitter account before it was deleted and recreated him on Gab.
What’s even more impressive is he did this while traffic was up 700% and under attack from leftists. Gab is currently having servers upgraded to handle the large influx in traffic but we’re told it should stabilize soon.
Andrew Torba, the founder of Gab, said Monday that the free speech platform saw 600,000 new users in one day as President Donald Trump has been censored from most mainstream tech platforms, as previously reported by 100% FED UP.
Torba previously revealed that Gab’s traffic exploded as high as 753 percent after Trump and many other conservatives have been purged from Twitter, Facebook, and other big tech platforms.
“Our traffic is up 753% in the past 24 hours. Tens of millions of visits,” Gab said…
Michigan’s Democrat Secretary of State has been hit with a bombshell court ruling after a judge ordered the top state official to release all communications regarding the 2020 election between her office and Dominion Voting Systems.
Michigan 13th Circuit Court Judge Kevin A Elsenheimer also ordered MI SOS Jocelyn Benson (D) to hand over any communications she made with anyone working for, or connected to, Big Tech companies, including Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Amazon, or Google.
The move comes as Democrats and their allies in Silicone Valley and the media attempt to shift attention away from the Election and toward President Donald Trump’s impeachment. However, ongoing investigations into the presidential race are far from over…
The Republican Party killed itself. The particular poison it swallowed is the hatred it harbors for its own voters. Sooner or later, all that hatred was going to burn it up.
When Republican lawmakers turned their backs on Republican voters protesting for free and fair elections and endorsed election fraud by ignoring it, they blew up any remaining illusion that the Red-Blue divide in D.C. is real.
Republican voters struggled for over a decade to give the Republican Party all the power it needed to fight for the Constitution and American liberty and against the quickening assault of totalitarian state control.
Republican voters repeatedly urged Republican lawmakers to stomp out Big Tech’s censorship and strangling of free speech before it was too late. Republicans in office have done nothing.
When voters turn a blind eye to their suspicions that only a UniParty exists in D.C…

A Chicago Tribune columnist calls Trump supporters “domestic terrorists” and the media is now flatly stating as fact that what happened last week at the Capitol was an “insurrection,” an attempted “coup,” an “attack on our democracy.” These claims are accompanied by frequent assertions that “white supremacists” were responsible.
.Ah yes, every Trump supporter is a Nazi/White supremacist who hates puppies and kittens or something according to the mainstream propaganda spewed by the left.
But the number of people involved in the Capitol riot were a tiny fraction of the 200,000 or so who came to Washington last week for the “Stop the Steal”/”Save America” rally. It is being stated as a matter of fact — by members of the media, as well as Democrats in Congress — that everybody who voted to reelect Trump is a “white supremacist” complicit in a plot to overthrow the government.
Well, here’s a question: Where were these people allegedly concerned about sedition, when it was Democrats trying to invalidate Trump’s election on the basis of a phony “Russian collusion” hoax?
HMMM Indeed! By the way, someone ought to ask our media how Trump’s speech “incited” these folks who had been planning to make trouble for weeks before Jan. 6? Think about that
Of course, I am just a White guy, so a Biden appointee saying Blacks are superior to Whites cannot be racist, right? Right?
Joe Biden‘s pick to run the Justice Department‘s enormously powerful Civil Rights Division is a woman called Kristen Clarke. Clarke says her job is simple: End hate. But like so many in her world, Clarke is actually an enthusiastic purveyor of what she claims to fight.
A new investigation by “Tucker Carlson Tonight” has uncovered shocking statements that Clarke made while attending Harvard as an undergraduate.
In 1994, Clarke wrote a letter to The Harvard Crimson in her capacity as the president of the Black Students Association to explain her views on race science.
“Please use the following theories and observations to assist you in your search for truth regarding the genetic differences between Blacks and whites [sic],” Clarke wrote. “One: Dr Richard King reveals that the core of the human brain is the ‘locus coeruleus,’ which is a structure that is Black, because it contains large amounts of neuro-melanin, which is essential for its operation.
“Two: Black infants sit, crawl and walk sooner than whites [sic]. Three: Carol Barnes notes that human mental processes are controlled by melanin — that same chemical which gives Blacks their superior physical and mental abilities.
“Four: Some scientists have revealed that most whites [sic] are unable to produce melanin because their pineal glands are often calcified or non-functioning. Pineal calcification rates with Africans are five to 15 percent [sic], Asians 15 to 25 percent [sic] and Europeans 60 to 80 percent [sic]. This is the chemical basis for the cultural differences between blacks and whites [sic].
“Five: Melanin endows Blacks with greater mental, physical and spiritual abilities — something which cannot be measured based on Eurocentric standards.”
Wow, sounds like racist language to me

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that Congress is “looking into” media literacy initiatives to help “rein in” the press to combat misinformation in the wake of last week’s deadly breach of the U.S. Capitol.
During a lengthy live stream on Instagram on Tuesday night, the leader of the so-called “Squad” discussed the aftermath of the Capitol riot, how she feared for her life during the chaos and what needs to be done going forward.
At one point, Ocasio-Cortez read a question from a viewer who asked if there is discussion in Congress on “truth and reconciliation or media literacy initiatives” to help with healing.
“I can say, there is absolutely a commission being discussed but it seems to be more investigatory, in style rather than truth and reconciliation, so I think that’s an interesting concept for us to explore
I think it safe to say that the left wants complete control of the media. And, they will get it unless the media realizes they are helping sow the seeds of their own slavery to the left. Right now, much of our media are helping the Democrats willingly, before long it will not matter if they willingly go along or not

Oh Don Lemon, he goes on TV every night, bashes anyone and everyone who supported Trump. He prejudges them, slanders them all as RAAAAACISTS. And while he is on his bigoted rants it never dawns on him that he is exposing how narrow-minded and bigoted he is.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) announced Thursday she will file articles of impeachment against President-elect Joe Biden one day after he is inaugurated.
Greene said she is taking the action because of alleged business dealings Biden and his son Hunter Biden have had with the Chinese Communist Party and in the Ukraine.
“We have to make sure that our leaders are held accountable, we cannot have a president of the United States that is willing to abuse the power of the office of the presidency and be easily bought off by foreign governments… Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies,” she told Newsmax TV. “So on January 21, I will be filing articles of impeachment on Joe Biden.”…
Epik, a domain-hosting website, says it is in talks with Parler to better improve their policies and posting standards after the popular app registered its domain with the site Monday, after getting booted from Amazon Web Services.
“It is a shame as we desperately need healing, unity and reconciliation,” Epik Senior Vice President of Communications Robert Davis said in a statement. “It is difficult to achieve this when many of our social media platforms have been reduced to feed us an ‘us versus them’ mentality to compete for market interest and consumer relevance.”
Davis said de-platforming Parler but not taking similar actions against other major tech companies or social media operators “may very well represent one of the most grotesque abuses of power and privilege in American seen in this generation. It serves the very creation and stimulation of extremists beliefs that Amazon and others have professed to care about.”
Epik initially denied having had any contact or discussions with Parler as of Monday…
Offering the latest reminder that the COVID-19 vaccine isn’t 100% effective at stopping people from getting the virus, Democratic Representative Adriano Espaillat of New York announced that he had tested positive even after receiving the second dose of a vaccine. He’s now isolating at home.
“I received the second dose of the #COVID19vaccine last week and understand the affects take time,” Espaillat said on Twitter Thursday, without identifying which vaccine he got. “I have continued to be tested regularly, wear my mask and follow the recommended guidelines.”
Despite all those warnings about a long, dark winter, COVID-linked hospitalizations might have declined over the past month…
Google has suspended President Donald Trump’s YouTube account and formally warned the White House about its use of the world’s largest video platform.
The company said Tuesday night that Trump uploaded content that violated its policies, giving it an automatic one strike, which leads to a minimum seven-day suspension from uploading new content. It said it is also disabling the comments section.
The company did not specify which videos violated its policies but said it was “content” that included comments Trump made Tuesday morning. YouTube said it violated policies that prohibit content for inciting violence.
Donald J. Trump’s YouTube account has 2.77 million subscribers and typically posts several videos a day from him and from right-wing media stations.
Under YouTube’s three-strike system, a channel will be suspended for one week after the first strike, two after the second and terminated after a third strike within 90 days…
President Donald Trump traveled to the southern U.S. border on Jan. 12 to tout the successful construction of 450 miles of border wall and a number of other immigration enforcement achievements from his administration.
The president delivered a brief speech in Alamo, Texas, amid a backdrop of construction equipment and a section of the border wall. The barrier is one of the most concrete landmarks of Trump’s legacy. The president spent years bargaining and battling with Democrats to secure funding for the project amid a surge in illegal crossings over the border with Mexico.
“We worked long and hard to get this done. They said it couldn’t be done. And we got it done: one of the largest infrastructure projects in the history of our country…
Travelers in airports will no longer see CNN on TV screens as they wait for their flights starting in March, when the network plans to discontinue its CNN Airport Network, in part due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Network president Jeff Zucker made the announcement on Tuesday in a memo to staff, saying there had been a “steep decline” in need for the network since air travel is down due to the coronavirus pandemic, the New York Post reported.
“The steep decline in airport traffic because of COVID-19, coupled with all the new ways that people are consuming content on their personal devices, has lessened the need for the CNN Airport Network,” Zucker wrote. “Having to say goodbye to such a beloved brand is not easy… I am sure most of us have a story to tell about which airport we were at when we first learned of a major news event.”
CNN launched its Airport Network nearly 30 years ago, in January 1992…
House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA) on Sunday called for a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) investigation into Big Tech stifling the new social media platform Parler.
“The effect of this is there is no longer a free and open social media company or site for any American to get on anymore because these big companies – Apple, Amazon, Google – they likely destroyed what was likely a billion dollar company,” Nunes explained to Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo. “Poof. It’s gone.”
The congressman explained the concern is bigger than a company taking a financial hit.
“Republicans have no way to communicate. It doesn’t even matter if you’re Republican or conservative…
What began as a whimsical, sometimes mocked military concept has evolved and developed into an efficient missile defense system.
The Iron Dome was such a success in Israel against incoming rockets – and the U.S. Army was so convinced of the system’s ability to protect U.S. military personnel and material – that the military acquired two of the advanced missile defense systems from the Israel Ministry of Defense.
The first system was delivered in September and the second one last weekend, according to israelnationalnews.com.
It all started when then-President Reagan addressed the nation and introduced the world to “Star Wars,” also known as the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), in 1983.
“Deterrence means simply this: making sure any adversary who thinks about attacking the United States, or our allies, or our vital interests, concludes that the risks to him outweigh any potential gains…

Cumulus Media, the talk radio conglomerate that hosts many conservative shows, says that their clientele will be fired unless they obey new politically correct edicts regarding their programming.
Specifically, hosts Mark Levin, Dan Bongino and Ben Shapiro will likely be fired if they suggest that the vote was stolen from President Donald Trump, despite the mountains of evidence indicating that this in fact was the case.
“We need to help induce national calm NOW,” a Cumulus Media executive wrote last week following the Capitol rally. Brian Philips, executive vice president for Cumulus, made the official announcement that Draconian censorship would be instituted in the response to the display.
He issued an edict saying that Cumulus and Westwood One “will not tolerate any suggestion that the election has not ended. The election has been resolved and there are no alternate acceptable ‘paths’.”…
President Donald Trump has awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio).
The Medal of Freedom, established by President John F. Kennedy, is awarded by presidents to people who have made exceptional contributions to the security or national interests of America, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.
Jordan, who has served the people of Ohio’s 4th Congressional District for 14 years, helped uncover the gun-running program known as “Fast and Furious,” which sent AK-47s to Mexican drug cartels during the Obama administration, the White House said in a statement.
Jordan’s other work includes identifying millions of dollars in wasteful spending…
On Monday, the social media site Parler filed a lawsuit against Amazon, claiming that Amazon’s suspension of Parler violated antitrust laws and breached the contract between the two entities.
As Parler went dark Monday morning, CEO John Matze told Fox News that the site would try to “get back online as quickly as possible,” but warned that the platform could be down for as long as a week.
Reuters reported, “Amazon suspended Parler from its Amazon Web Services (AWS) unit for violating AWS’s terms of services by failing to effectively deal with a steady increase in violent content, according to an email by an AWS Trust and Safety team to Parler, seen by Reuters. An Amazon spokesperson confirmed the letter was authentic.”
Amazon said Parler presented a “very real risk to public safety.”
The lawsuit filed by Parler starts by asserting, “Last Month, Defendant Amazon Web Services, Inc. (‘AWS’) and the popular social media platform Twitter signed a multi-year deal…
With nine days to go before Inauguration Day, the Supreme Court threw out a raft of requests this morning for expedited consideration of legal challenges to election results in multiple states by President Donald Trump’s campaign and Trump supporters.
The actions come after Congress voted Jan. 7 to dismiss all objections lodged by senators and representatives challenging Electoral College votes from disputed states narrowly won by the Democratic Party ticket of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Republican lawmaker support for the objections collapsed after multiple individuals bearing Trump campaign flags and paraphernalia ran amok in the United States Capitol while lawmakers were attempting to officially certify the results of the Nov. 6 election…
Conservative author and political commentator Ryan Girdusky piqued curiosity and set off widespread speculation after tweeting late Saturday afternoon that “one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project [offered] jobs to young men in exchange for sex,” adding that “his wife is probably interested” to hear about the allegations.
Although Girdusky did not post screenshots of Weaver’s predatory actions himself, saying he “worked with journalists and reached out to victims asking for them to speak up because it was their story, not mine,” several others spoke up about what they experienced and heard.
Twitter user @JoshPri68522288 was one of the first to speak up, tweeting that “I know who did it, because they did it to me. It was John Weaver.”
@_liberalproject also said that “Weaver used to follow me when I used my real name on here. Out of the blue he DM’d being pushy with personal questions and trying to flirt with me. After I didn’t go along with it, he unfollowed me and never DM’d me since.”…
After last Wednesday’s Trump rally at the Ellipse in D.C., some of the up to 100,000 present walked over to the Capitol, where Congress was meeting to ratify the Electoral College vote. While there an even smaller number, a few hundred at the most, broke into the Capitol lobby, with some proceeding into a few Congressional offices.
So, a rally attended peacefully by the majority of people, was taken over by a small mob of knuckleheads and day-trippers who invaded the Capitol. Sadly, a woman and a police officer were killed, and three other protestors died from “medical emergencies.” Scores more including police officers were injured.
The police authorities in D.C. had bungled badly their security preparations, and bear a large share of the responsibility for this fiasco…
Gab.com, the free speech friendly social network, says traffic has increased by more than 750 percent in the past few days, following the blacklisting of President Donald Trump from most mainstream tech platforms.
“Our traffic is up 753% in the past 24 hours. Tens of millions of visits,” said Gab in response to a question about slow loading speeds.
The free speech network announced that it would bring ten new servers online to handle the increased traffic volume.
Gab was the first free speech alternative to Twitter. It takes a hardline stance on freedom of speech, allowing all legal content except pornography. Users are allowed to control their own experience on the platform through the creation of custom word filters and blocks.
Gab takes an equally hardline stance on illegal content and threats of violence, encouraging users to proactively report such content for removal…
Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined other prominent conservative voices on Saturday by abandoning his Twitter account after the social media platform permanently banned President Donald Trump.
“To be true to the resolution to myself: this is my last tweet. [O]ther than to read news, [I won’t] be on [T]witter,” Gutfeld first tweeted on Jan. 2. Offering the link to his own website, Gutfeld continued, “[Y]ou’re all invited there; just leave the bullshit behind. Tata.”
On Saturday, after Twitter had banned the president and seemingly began purging the followers of conservative accounts, Gutfeld returned for a final sign-off. “[O]kay, this IS my last tweet: CNN tries to get FNC banned…
When people with experience of political corruption and repression warn Americans about danger signs in the current efforts to shut down dissidents, we should take note.
