A WELL-DESERVED GRILLING

Wednesday, the Senate grilled the CEOs of Facebook, Twitter and Google about their deplatforming, banning and blocking of conservative voices and any news that might harm Joe Biden’s political fortunes (at least the Senate Republicans grilled them. The Democrats seemed fine with it, having adopted the belief that the fascistic crushing of free speech by big tech is just dandy as long the monster eats them last.)

We’ve seen this show before: the denials, the weasel words, and the feeble excuses, parsing of language and faux protestations of wide-eyed innocence (Mark Zuckerberg claimed to be unaware that Facebook’s “election integrity” official is a former Biden policy adviser), all to make us believe that these Silicon Valley billionaires are stunned at the very suggestion that their companies might harbor bias that affects their content.

Naturally, the leftist media tried to spin the hearings against the pro-free speech Republicans, with Axios.com claiming that they were just trying to “influence them against cracking down on misinformation from Trump and other conservatives.” First of all, if they are a neutral platform, as required by law if they don’t want to lose their protection from lawsuits, then they have no business deciding that any particular viewpoint represents “misinformation.” If they were honest and even-handed and only banned real misinformation, CNN would be missing from Google searches instead of many conservative media sites.

Second, how many undercover videos have we now seen, and how many whistleblowers have come forth, that all reveal how far left these companies’ corporate cultures are, and how among themselves, they proudly boast of silencing conservatives while turning a blind eye to far worse infractions by the left? How many conservative posts have they banned for “inciting violence” that plainly weren’t, while allowing open threats by liberals against the President or his supporters to stand untouched? In short, who are you gonna believe, these microchip Mussolinis or your lying eyes?

In one case, it became patently obvious how phony their excuses were. When pressed about Twitter’s censorship of the New York Post story about Hunter Biden’s laptop, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey claimed they were no longer being censored, and that “anyone can tweet these articles.” Sen. Ted Cruz responded, “What he told the Senate, under oath, is false. I just tried to tweet the [New York Post] story alleging Biden’s CCP corruption. Still blocked. 18 USC 1621 makes it a felony to lie under oath to the Senate.”

In addition to the outright lies and phony excuses, we also got an encore of their previous Congressional appearances that featured disingenuous pleas for us all to work together and find solutions for the problems they’re personally causing. Dorsey later tweeted, “Some of you don’t trust we’re acting in good faith. That’s the problem I want to focus on solving. How do services like Twitter earn your trust? How do we ensure more choice in the market if we don’t?”

GOP House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy replied, “Here's a first step that Twitter can take to change that: STOP TARGETING CONSERVATIVES.” Others noted that if you claim to be baffled why people don’t think you’re acting in good faith when you ban the President’s tweets as hate speech and propaganda but allow Iran to tweet “Death to America,” then your claims of acting in good faith are not being spoken in good faith.

Stephen Kruiser has more about this at PJ Media, along with a prediction that nothing will change because they’re hoping to run out the clock, help Biden get elected and the Democrats take over the Senate, and then the “the very behavior that prompted yesterday’s hearing will be rewarded by the Dems.” So if you needed a 10,312th reason to get up and go vote Republican, there you go.

TWO EMAILS PER DAY

I am sending the Morning and Evening newsletters to all subscribers until November 10.  Each email will have unique content so don't worry about overlapping stories.  With so much news before and likely after the Election, I don't want you to miss out on a story during this critical time for our country. 

I also hope that you will forward my emails to friends and family looking for news delivered from a conservative point of view.  I will tell it like it is, and you can expect me to continue to comment fairly on the good and bad.  On November 11, we will return to our normal email delivery.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

Quote Of The Day! Sen. Ted Cruz to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey: “Who in the h**l elected you and put you in charge of what the media are allowed to report and what the American people are allowed to hear?”

A DEFUNDING THE POLICE PREVIEW FOR AMERICA

Rioting and looting continued for a second night in Philadelphia following the police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr. Wallace was approaching two cops and refused to drop his knife.

The more we learn about this, the more incompetence and outright bad decisions by Democratic city leaders are revealed. For instance, it’s been reported that neither officer had been issued a taser, which might have stopped Wallace without using deadly force. Meanwhile, frustrated officers told reporters that they were ordered not to arrest looters, just “disperse” them. The result was that at least 1,000 looters turned retail stores in the Port Richmond neighborhood and other areas into a “total loss.” They also attacked officers, sending a number of them to the hospital, with the police’s hands tied in dealing with them.

Law-abiding citizens were, as usual, caught in the middle. The police said they were ordered to respond to “priority” calls only, which meant “no calls for disturbance, missing person, stolen vehicle, burglary or theft will be answered.”

So Philadelphians are getting a sneak preview of what “defunding the police” will look like. As some pundits are pointing out, this is BLM making a surprise contribution to the effort to reelect Trump.

Meanwhile, Pennsylvania’s Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf described the lawlessness as “peaceful protests.” I have to assume that he’s expecting to get voted out of office and is angling for a job at CNN.


ERASING WOMEN

I keep hearing that women are more inclined to support the Democrats, but why would they support people whose agenda is literally erasing the very concept of women? Here are the latest bulletins from the loony bin of the “party of science”:

A transgender, self-proclaimed “lesbian warrior princess” has filed a human rights lawsuit against a women-only beauty pageant for not letting “her” compete, just because she still has male genitals. The pageant already changed its rules to allow fully surgically altered trans contestants, but that’s not good enough.

And pardon me for bringing this up, but it’s more about insanity than biology: Tampax is under fire from its actual female customers for a new “woke” twitter ad that reads, “Fact: Not all women have periods. Also a fact: Not all people with periods are women. Let's celebrate the diversity of all people who bleed!”

Fact: Only one of the two things above is a fact. If you’re baffled as to which one, you’re probably a member of the “party of science.”


AGENTS OF THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT

The FBI announced the indictments of eight people who were allegedly operating as agents of the Chinese government inside the US. Surprisingly, none of them were Hunter Biden. Details at the link.

UNHINGED

Remember when the New York Times used to have such a reputation for solid stodginess that it was nicknamed “The Gray Lady”? Well, someone must’ve been putting gin in the Gray Lady’s Geritol because the paper’s unhinged editorial reaction to Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation is the journalistic equivalent of swinging from the rafters like a chimpanzee.

UPDATE

Yesterday, I reported on the latest undercover expose by Project Veritas of a political operative in San Antonio who boasted of harvesting thousands of ballots from seniors and recently-released criminals, often in exchange for gifts or free beer. She’s now claiming that she knew the undercover reporter was with Project Veritas and only said all those false and self-incriminating things as part of her own undercover counter-investigation. Yeah, that’s the ticket!

We’ll see if the Texas Attorney General, who’s already launched an investigation, finds that excuse believable. In the meantime, to clear up a question from the original report: yes, she is usually a Republican political operative, but this alleged operation was to harvest votes for Biden and other Democrats, reportedly sponsored by both Democrats and local never-Trump Republicans.

In other never-Trumper news, the bitter pills at the Lincoln Project aren’t too good at thinking things through (obviously), so it’s no surprise that their latest ad that tries to paint Trump as a dangerous dictator who will seize power in the future for a third term inadvertently implies that they expect he’ll win a second term.

The despoilers of Lincoln’s name are reportedly trying to parlay their TDS into a media company that will make them even more money than they’ve already bilked out of rich liberals. But with some liberal outlets are now branding them as “grifters” and with that ad representing the quality of their media content, it doesn’t sound like a venture I’d want to invest in.

BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY

    Mike when I look at the males on the left and the females on left they take me back to the days when I served with the Greatest Generation I was targeted coming back from se Asia in the early 70’s to bolster membership with the return of the Vietnam soldier. After serving for years they worked me into being the post commander the reason I am telling u this most of are gone they fought people like Schumer Schiff bleumenthal Harris booker horrible people in different countries the greatest generation knew these people were horrific they knew they could not live with the ideals of communist socialists imperialism the horrors these types would reign on a country. If half of the us population know they knew and what I know what the leftist have planned for America would be wiped out quickly the greatest generation would not let it get started I am here with millions that know I hope it will be enough

    If the Lincoln Projectors are so good at turning two negatives into a positive, sounds like they've been training with Biden - why not encourage them to go live on 60 Minutes.

    Citizens of cities where the Mayors do no do their job and prevent lawlessness should be sued for return of their salaries or the next in line should be promoted. Marxism should not be tolerated

    I had a chilling thought today. A vote for the Harris ticket (not Biden because if he wins, he will be no more than a prop in the Oval Office for photo ops) means every police officer in this country will have a death warrant on his back except in those areas that are Republican run and even in those areas they might not be safe. If returning to the days of the Wild, Wild West like what we witnessed in Seattle aka the “Summer of Love” is the preference for progressives, then perhaps they will be afforded that wish if Biden wins. Those police that are remaining in areas where they are unwelcome will, I hope, seriously consider moving themselves and their families to a kindler, gentler place. Believe it or not these areas still exist and their services would be welcome.

    America needs JESUS ! America has murdered more than 60 million babies, promoted sodomy, closed churches and much more. Unless we repent , we can Expect GOD's Judgement. If we knowingly vote for a person who promotes the murder of babies, we are just as guilty as the hands on murderer. I don't want the blood of babies on my hands, so I voted for Trump.

    YOUR STATEMENT: "it’s more about insanity than biology" defines well all the OTHER liberal...leftist...topics you talk about in these articles...

    If we can then turn around and include in a definition OF insanity that it is authored by NON -REALITY then it can also well be said of this upcoming election that it is being authored BY insanity!

    As I have expressed, a number of times now, because the one who is authoring this insanity is Satan himself, the pandemic is God's judgment on America for ALLOWING Satan to get this kind of control over her and, therefore, is God also involved in this political situation that He allowed to be impacted BY the pandemic because, while the pandemic IS His judgment on America, it is more accurate to say it is His judgment on her "SIN"..for killing His unborn...for calling Him a liar for His "policy" that forbids same-sex marriage because He declares it to be sin.. ....AND...

    IT IS HIS JUDGMENT ON THE CHURCHES FOR not BEING a witness TO His truth that greater is HE who in us Christians than he who is in the world....because had we NOT been such a poor witness to He who is in us.. and the He who is Love, and truth.....the hatred, and lies, of the he who is In the world wouldn't be AUTHORING the insanity you talk about in your newsletters!

    Time will tell if there will be enough Christians to SEE this evil for what it is and if they discern that the Lord is calling them to cry out against it via claiming the election is fraudulent and, therefore, not valid!

    Love Ted Cruz's remark! Saw part of his questioning on Fox News Wednesday night! He was giving the Twitter guy, Dorsey, pure torture! Glad Cruz let him know about the federal crime, too. Dorsey needs a shave! Not sure what he is trying to portray! I wouldn't want him playing Santa at a party or in the mall!!! Dorsey wasn't making much eye contact with Cruz! He was somewhere between a couldn't care less and a scolded child mentality!

    I think there need to be clarification regarding the hysteria over abortions. If the .suoreme ?Court should by chance overturn Roe, that does not mean that abortion has been outlawed if my understanding is complete. What .roe did was prohibit any state from making a Law prohibiting abortion up to a certain week. That means that it would simply revert to the states to each make their own laws regarding this issue. It would be up to the Individual state. I imagine that most states would allow up to a certain point. Places like CA would probably allow it a point if delivery. I am personally not against abortion in alL circumstances where rape, serious disease, life of the mother are concerned. Anyone who has seen a sonogram at four months has to know that this is a baby. Some even suck their thumb. They have gender parts, arms, legs, faces, ears, etc.

    The whole preexisting condition thing is also mute in that
    Trump has said those with condition will be covered. The willful lying on the part of the DNC is so very egregious. Talk about erasing women. Trans men to women will totally wipe out born Women when it comes to many sports.
    How about that insult to Tim Scott? The DNC folks are the most racist people in the country. Now, now black folks, just do what we tell you and you’ll be fine living in your tenements with crime all around you. We’ll throw you the occasional bone, but don’t even think about independence. You just stay on our plantation and everything will be fine. don’t get uppity on us.

    Disturbing Erasing Women article So glad I don't have to be apart of that lunacy. What is wrong with the Girl Scouts denouncing a great Woman Mother and a Judge just what do Girls and Women want to adore just male role models can't girls have a Female to be similar too or reach to be Great. The Left has grabbed the leg of women and are trying to hold the Females to a lower standard to being a Human Being as the Left exhibits every day. Message to the Girls Scouts let the girls grow with high esteem of themselves I know for a fact women not held down grow to be great leaders. It is very noticeable the Left has a hold of the Girl Scouts Leaders not by the legs but have put the leaders in heavy cement shoes. This is more than shameful it is all out cowardice.

    I know this going to sound harsh and I do not care if it does...Reality check COVID "RELATED" deaths are sad and devastating to the loved once left behind BUT, so are deaths from Diabetes, Cancer, Heart Disease etc. This news media blitz about how devisting COVID is... IS a bunch of media, medical, political propaganda BS. I again ask how many people die from just COVID that do NOT already have terminal diseases...where are those REALISTIC NUMBERS! You are NOT GOING TO FIND THEM! WHY BECAUSE THEN PEOPLE WILL SEE THIS COVID VIRUS CRAP IS EXACTLY WHAT IT IS...A GAME OF MASS HYSTERIA TO PAD A FEW POCKETS. I am not saying COVID is not a serious bug, but logically and common sense wize lets attack this virus just like any other virus and stop making it "stronger/deadlier than what it actually is." Know who to trust but keep your enemies closer
