Big Tech Fascism Round-up

January 19, 2021

Kevin McCullough at Townhall.com expands on the question I asked: why aren’t the shareholders of Twitter and Facebook raising the roof over their CEOs tanking their stock prices and driving away customers by prioritizing their leftist politics over maximizing profits? His solution: sue ‘em. The government will never rein them in as long as Democrats are in power and benefiting from their illegal partisanship. But there are still civil courts, many with Trump-appointed judges, and there are hundreds of millions of shares of public stock owned by people with a legal vested interest in preventing these companies from destroying their investment.

McCullough lays out several legal areas in which Twitter and others may have opened themselves up to huge class action lawsuits, both from stockholders and from the people they unfairly deplatformed.

The latest victim of Silicon Valley leftist censorship is the conservative site AmericanThinker.com, which was forced to shut down its comments section or lose its site entirely. American Thinker hardly draws a lot of violent rightwing extremists. But even more threatening to those on the extreme left is a site that encourages people to think.

Finally, Derek Hunter at Townhall.com explains the difference between Google and other search engines such as DuckDuck Go and Bing. As he illustrates with examples, Google no longer returns the best results for your searches. It now returns only the results that its leftist executives want you to see.

Parler Update

January 19, 2021

Parler’s CEO John Matze said there have been significant positive developments and the free speech Twitter alternative is hopeful that it will be back online soon, after Amazon cut off its hosting service with no warning.

One negative development is that Matze and his family had to go into hiding because of death threats, ironically from leftists who accuse Parler (“without evidence”) of hosting the planning of the attack on the US Capitol (they want to kill anyone who promotes violence.) So far, it appears that any planning took place on other platforms – and incidentally, if it was planned in advance, doesn’t that prove that Trump’s speech did NOT incite it?

If House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took her responsibilities seriously, she would call for a vote rescinding her latest bogus impeachment on those now-disproven grounds. But she’s too busy posing for photos with the same National Guard troops that she referred to as “stormtroopers” when they were protecting federal buildings that her office is not in from violent leftist rioters.

Until Parler returns, a number of other services are making it clear that they’ll be happy to accept the thousands if not millions of users who are abandoning Twitter and Facebook. Here’s an article about two more, Signal and Telegram, which you might find interesting.

Most telling detail: a tech expert who usually has to explain new services like this to his parents heard from his parents to tell him they had already signed up for Signal. So when Twitter and Facebook tell you that they’re just driving out dangerous rightwing extremists, remember: they’re talking about your parents.

On Wednesday, when Joe Biden is inaugurated as the 46th President of the United States, Washington, DC, will host nearly 30,000 armed troops, more than five times the number currently stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. For the first time, the entire week preceding the inauguration was declared a “National Special Security Event.”

As described by THE EPOCH TIMES, the city has been brought “to almost a complete halt. More than a dozen Metro stations around the National Mall and the U.S. Capitol Building were closed...the streets of Washington are eerily empty. Buses, streetcars and other forms of public transportation, even bicycles, have been shut down. Most stores are closed, and many have been boarded up.”

The area for blocks around the White House looks like a war zone.

Now, if the new administration really were afraid of some kind of armed insurrection, they could've simply announced that the oath of office would take place inside the White House with streaming video for all who cared to watch. Truly, many of us will be finding better things to do. Even Trump has kindly RSVP'd that he and his "plus-one" will not be attending, thank-you-very-much.

The pandemic would've given Biden the perfect reason to take it inside. But no, Democrats WANT the accompanying visuals of an occupied city, a militarized zone, the rows of National Guard troops bussed in from every state, the bomb detectors, the dogs, the block after block of high fencing topped by razor wire. Because it makes a statement the likes of which we have never seen.

A statement about conservatives.

All this theater is to convey the message that anyone who didn’t support Biden, who (gasp) might have voted for Trump and who (double gasp) might even slightly question one single vote is –- like Trump himself –- a “dangerous extremist" and WILL be kept in check.

The media have their role to play in making this connection, of course. Don’t click on this link unless you have a strong stomach, but...this is CNN.

So far, though, things have been calm, and Trump has told his supporters to remain peaceful. He said, "In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking, and NO violence of any kind. That is not what I stand for, and it is not what America stands for. I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers. Thank You.”

I will never make light of what happened on January 6 or try to shift blame away from those on the right who participated as some have done. That said, it was a relative handful of brain-dead protesters (augmented, as we have learned, by some Antifa and BLM) who breached the Capitol and horrified most conservatives.

Never mind all the looting, burning and assorted violence during 2020 in “blue” cities that were turned into occupied zones for real. And never mind the pathetic lack of crowd control around the Capitol. The left is using the Capitol Hill breach as an excuse to treat all conservatives like members of ISIS.

Think I’m kidding? Oh, this is going to get much worse.

As Tucker Carlson reported Monday night, Democrats, to ramp-up the drama, demanded that all troops sent to Washington for Inauguration Week undergo a sort of “ideological vetting” (their words), to make sure every one of them professes loyalty to the new regime. “Not loyalty to our country, not loyalty to our Constitution, but loyalty to the aims of a specific political party,” was the way he put it.

The concern among leftists apparently was that the National Guard is mostly white, male and conservative-leaning, with only about 25 percent of them having voted for Biden. Memphis Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen (also white and male, incidentally) assumes that the other 75 percent “are in the large class of folks who might want to, uh, do something.”

"Do something”? If Rep. Cohen stands by this –- he said it on CNN, among friends –- it sure sounds as if he suspects the 75 percent of the National Guard that is white, male and conservative of wanting to assassinate the incoming President.

I wonder how the more conservative members of the Guard might think about this. What about all those Americans who join out of love of country and would never dream of “doing something” to government officials of either party? Now they’re automatically suspect?

Gen. William Walker said on GOOD MORNING, AMERICA that members of the Guard are being “screened before they leave their state. It’s a “credentialing process so they’re screened and they’re repeatedly screened until they are actually put out on the street.” Also, “it's layered so the FBI is part of it, the Secret Service is part of it, and once they are certain there’s no insider threat, then that soldier, guardsman or airman is given a credential. Gen. Walker did not elaborate on the nature of the “inside threat.”

In a statement, the Army said they’re working with the FBI to identify all who were part of the attack on the Capitol to see if any of those people have a connection to the Army. And that makes sense if those individuals were part of the violence. But if they just happened to be in the huge, overwhelmingly peaceful crowd of Trump supporters, we are heading into dangerous territory.

Here’s another report about the vetting of troops, but leading into that discussion are pictures of something we don’t quite know what to make of. Are “armed” soldiers patrolling the streets around the White House and Capitol with rifles that don’t have magazines? We’re not offering any speculation about what this means, just expressing bewilderment.

It does seem we might have an intra-military conflict brewing, with those who share the ideology of the incoming administration to be trusted and those who disagree with it to be suspected. If it’s true, this is a far cry from what the military used to be, with Republicans and Democrats proudly fighting alongside one another, as buddies, to defend their flag and their nation. This radical change is a prescription for disaster.

And how will the new administration know who is with them or against them? Why, they’ll have to spy on them, of course, with a new internal spy agency created just to deal with “domestic terrorism.” And that is already in the works, in the form of a bill with over 100 co-sponsors in the House.

Leftists will love this new power as a way to go after “pro-Trump fanatics.” Every word uttered by every conservative white male in America (especially if he owns guns and a MAGA hat) will likely be monitored if this becomes law, and not just by Facebook and Twitter. It's like another Patriot Act for these times --- what could go wrong?

At this writing, President Trump has yet to release all the promised declassified “Russia Collusion” investigation documents. But Washington reporter John Solomon claims that the revelations in them will include that Nancy Pelosi’s star impeachment witness, British "academic," Fiona Hill, was actually the operative who introduced Igor Danchenko to Christopher Steele, Danchenko being the source who provided a lot of unverified rumors about Trump that masqueraded as evidence. Also, that the entire phony scandal was created and leaked to the media to neutralize Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. Again, that’s from Solomon, so we have to wait and see if that’s confirmed by the documents.

However, on Friday, the Senate Judiciary Committee did release transcripts from its investigation into the “investigation,” and we can see why Chairman Lindsay Graham called the “Crossfire Hurricane” probe of Trump "one of the most incompetent and corrupt investigations in the history of the FBI and DOJ." He said there was “no ‘there’ there,” so it should have been stopped, but the agents kept pushing forward anyway to achieve their desired outcome because of their own biases.

Among the revelations in the transcripts: One FBI agent requested validation of Christopher Steele’s reporting, which started but was stopped by Bill Priestap and (stop me if you’ve heard this name before) Peter Strzok. The agent was so disturbed by their refusal to vet the source of their alleged evidence that he quit the investigation.

The transcripts also show that the FBI was informed as early as January 2017 that the “Steele dossier” was a load of "second and third-hand information and rumors at best;” that it was "unsubstantiated and unreliable" political opposition research; but they continued using it as evidence to get FISA court warrants and as a basis to appoint a special prosecutor.

Sen. Graham said the leadership of the FBI under former Director James Comey and former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was "either grossly incompetent" or that "they knowingly allowed tremendous misdeeds"…"There was a blind eye turned toward any explanation other than the Trump campaign was colluding with foreign powers. At every turn, the FBI and DOJ ran stop signs that were in abundance regarding exculpatory information." (And yet, we still have to endure moral lectures from James Comey.)

In summation, he said, "The FISA court was lied to. Exculpatory information was withheld on those being investigated. The investigators, with some notable exceptions, were incredibly biased and used the powers of law enforcement for political purposes. The subjects of the investigation had their lives turned upside down. It is my hope that counterintelligence investigations will be reined in and this never happens again in America."

Sadly, considering that the very people responsible are already being lined up for top jobs in a Biden Administration (and you could argue that one of the people most responsible was Joe Biden himself), I wouldn’t bet the farm on it not ever happening again.

It was announced that on Wednesday, President Trump will leave the White House in the morning, arriving at his new home in Florida by noon, when Joe Biden will be inaugurated. Before anyone starts in on the “unprecedented” OUTRAGE of him not attending his successor’s Inauguration, it’s happened three times before. John Adams, John Quincy Adams and Andrew Johnson all skipped their successors’ Inaugurals.

Here are more details about the Inauguration and who will attend. Some of the names might surprise you.

I have a feeling Trump won’t be the only Republican who plans to find something better to do than watch Biden’s virtual Inauguration (what better way to follow a virtual campaign and a virtual election?) and the celebration of “unity” by celebrities who’ve spent the past four years calling Trump supporters white supremacist Nazis. Don’t get me wrong; I’d love to believe that we’re entering a new period of national healing and a cooling down of partisan rancor, but when I see the comments Biden made about Trump, I have a hard time swallowing it.

Kurt Schlichter offers his usual hilariously brutal assessment of how it will be viewed by all but Biden supporters and the media (but I repeat myself):

And he carries that theme forward on how Republicans must refuse to be silenced by government, media or social media, and how to go about countering that censorship and bullying to protect free speech, a free press and free thought.

Excellent New Memoir

January 18, 2021

Matthew McConaughey has an excellent new memoir out, filled with wise essays about his life, marriage, fatherhood and Christian faith, and advice that you might be surprised would come from a Hollywood star. He’s also become one of the few voices of reason and moderation in Hollywood. And his willingness to reach out and listen to other viewpoints sets him apart in an ocean of lockstep leftist totalitarians.

But of course, in this toxic political climate, being reasonable is a thought crime, and the Twitter warriors are now after him, accusing him of “flirting with the alt-right” just for granting interviews to promote his book with mainstream conservative TV and radio hosts.

In that story, the Daily Beast writer who went after McConaughey insists it’s not a call to “cancel” him. She writes, "The issue with 'cancel culture,' to the extent that one even exists, is not that anyone is, to borrow McConaughey’s neologism, 'illegitimizing' what these guys are saying. The Jordan Petersons and Joe Rogans of the world are not, as they so often complain, being persecuted or, as McConaughey put it in his Russell Howard interview, erased. They’re simply peddling the losing ends of arguments that have already occurred countless times—perpetuating a culture war while simultaneously trying to frame themselves as its victims."

If she’s so sure that, say, Jordan Peterson’s views are “losing arguments,” why is she so terrified of allowing him to make them publicly? Does she fear his “losing arguments” will be more persuasive than her own, which they surely are?

It’s yet another example of what I always hear from the left: “There’s no such thing as ‘cancel culture!’ And anyone who says there is must be CANCELED IMMEDIATELY!!!”

PS – At the risk of drawing even more fire from the left at Matthew McConaughey, here’s a terrific interview that he was gracious enough to have with me recently on “Huckabee.”

I have said since the tragic and inexcusable violence that broke out last week in the US Capitol that everyone involved should be brought to justice. Some people tried to say it was Antifa people in Trump garb, but some of the participants have already been identified as Trump supporters. Some may be from far-right extremist groups who planned to start trouble (and Trump’s speech had nothing to do with it)…

Some others may have just been Trump supporters who followed along, not knowing what they were getting into. But if they participated in rioting, then they have to be held accountable. Our side can’t have the kind of double standard the left engages in, posturing as defenders of law and order over riots by their political opponents while excusing and even enabling riots by their own side. So I want it made clear that I will not cut any slack for Trump supporters who acted violently and broke the law. In fact, I expect them to act responsibly, which I can’t say of the leftists.

All that said, however, I still want the investigators to identify everyone responsible for that riot, and to make them publicly and legally accountable. And the more we’re learning about it, the more it appears that there might have been more leftist skullduggery than we were first led to believe.

Rather than try to summarize all this, I’ll direct you to this story, which has video from within the Capitol that day (warning: the images are disturbing and some of the language is raw.)

The video appears to show that John Sullivan, the alleged Utah BLM organizer who claims he was only there to record the event, was not only egging on the violence but at one point marvels that “we accomplished this,” (Sullivan claims he was just putting on an act to build rapport with the real rioters – yeah, that’s the ticket!) A blonde woman with him says, “You were right! We did it!” Sullivan replies, “Dude, I was trying to tell you. I couldn’t say much. Is this not going to be the best film you’ve ever made in your life?”

That woman appears to be Jade Sacker, a journalist who’s worked with NBC, NPR and CNN, and who later appeared on CNN with Sullivan to tell Anderson Cooper about what they’d innocently witnessed. Note the fact-check website LeadStories.com has a different take on Sacker's credentials.

Also revealed was a series of Sullivan’s posts on a chat site called Discord.com, on a channel associated with his radical leftist group, Insurgence USA. The posts reveal Sullivan posing in a Trump cap to show how he planned to blend in with Trump supporters and other anti-Trumpers discussing the same tactics and talking about how this is going to be a war and they were planning violent incidents masquerading as Trump rallies.

I know this all sounds like the kind of thing dismissed by the mainstream media as crazy conservative conspiracy theories, but if you go to this link, you can see all of Sullivan’s Discord posts and photos copied directly off the Internet.

Yet despite all these revelations and facing federal charges, Sullivan was released without bail by a federal judge. He was ordered to surrender his passport, be detained at and work from home, no longer use social media, have his internet and computer use monitored, be prohibited from possessing firearms, and stop working for Insurgence USA, although he doesn’t have to give up control of it.

Maybe now, we’re starting to understand why Nancy Pelosi had to rush through her Impeachment 2 sequel without waiting for the evidence to be gathered.

Also worth mentioning: if the violence at the Capitol was planned on Discord, why was Parler shut down?

Obama 2.0: Susan Rice as incoming "shadow President"

By Mike Huckabee

During the 2020 campaign, we speculated that the main goal of the Democrats was to get the Obama machine back in power, to the extent that one of our researchers even predicted that Michelle Obama would be the last-minute Democrat nominee, as she seemed to have the best chance of fulfilling that goal.

As it turned out, the former First Lady gets to continue relaxing at the shore with her friends, sipping drinks with little umbrellas, since she didn’t have to give up the easy life after all and enter the political fray. This wasn’t because the goal had changed --- not at all --- but because the Obamas and their strategists had put together a plan for reaching it by other means. And in the end, that’s exactly what they did.

If former acting Director of National Intelligence Rick Grenell is correct, the Obama/Biden “shadow President” will be none other than Obama’s former National Security Adviser Susan Rice.

Biden was selected as a relatively moderate-seeming Presidential candidate, and California Sen. Kamala Harris was the Obama designee to be on the ticket with him, even though her own presidential campaign hadn’t gone anywhere and she had dropped out even before her home state’s primary, without receiving even one vote from any state. She was there to provide the requisite racial diversity and leftist credentials, and also to function as Obama’s anointed one and likely Biden’s quick successor.

Now that Biden is about to take office, we can see that the Executive Branch of government is going to look like “old home week,” with Obama’s people back in full force. First, as reported on PJ MEDIA by Robert Spencer of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, Biden’s deputy secretary of state will be Wendy Sherman, whose main “accomplishment” was negotiating Obama’s Iran deal, which Obama still apparently views as the big star in his crown.

Next, Biden’s undersecretary for political affairs will be another Obama official whose name rings a bell: Victoria Nuland. Of these two, Biden said they “have secured some of the most defining national security and diplomatic achievements in recent memory. I am confident they will use their diplomatic experience and skill to restore America’s global and moral leadership. America is back.”

Back...to being what? I suggest back to being the same chumps we were before President Trump assumed office. Read Spencer’s piece for details of what Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said about the Iran deal two years ago. Iran was blatantly lying, he said, when they claimed to have no plans to construct nuclear weapons. The Iranians continued to work on expanding their nuclear weapons program, Project Amad, and to deny anything about this to US officials. So here we go again.

"We can now prove that Project Amad was a comprehensive program to design, build and test nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu said then. “We can also prove that Iran is secretly storing Project Amad material to use at a time of its choice to develop nuclear weapons.”

Spencer writes that “now Joe Biden is rewarding the chief architect of this mess with a promotion for her incompetence.” (Question: is it “incompetence” when an employee does exactly what her boss instructs her to do? Maybe that’s HIS incompetence.) “Nor is it Wendy Sherman alone,” Spencer continues. “The entire foreign policy arm of the Biden administration is set to be staffed by these failures, phonies and frauds. But with the establishment media doing everything it can to put the best possible face on the coming fiasco, most Americans will have no idea what is going on, or why.”

Grenell appeared on SUNDAY MORNING FUTURES with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the incoming administration.

About Susan Rice being appointed to head Biden’s White House Domestic Policy Counsel, he noted that she has no background whatsoever in domestic policy. She’d been on Biden’s short list for running mate, but this way of bringing her in was much less risky and doesn’t even require senate confirmation. “She is...somebody who is going to be incredibly influential,” Grenell said. As a former national security advisor, he said, “she knows that entire apparatus.”

They’d been making moves in the Obama administration towards making her secretary of state, but backed off because “she didn’t have the votes,” for senate confirmation, Grenell said. “I think the reality is, she’s going to be running foreign policy [and] domestic policy. She’s probably extremely happy that Kamala Harris is going to be preoccupied with the Senate, trying to manage 50-50, being the 101st senator there, and won’t have a lot of time to get into policy issues.”

"I think you need to watch Susan Rice very closely,” Grenell said. “She will be the shadow President.”

He noted how far left Biden has drifted in even the past five years. “The progressives have clearly taken over him, and I think that that’s why he won. They wanted someone who had a name, that they could control, and Susan Rice being right there at the White House, to be the shadow President, is probably exactly where she wants to be --- behind the scenes, and unchecked.”

Again, here we have it: in effect, the third term of President Obama. Susan Rice will be in the White House, positioned to run essentially everything.

On the 10th of this month, David Marcus wrote an opinion piece for the NEW YORK POST that talked about her upcoming role.

For those who have sort memories, Susan Rice participated not only in the repeated, blatant lying about what led to the Benghazi attack, but also in the “unmasking” of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn in phone calls that were appropriate for him to make as part of Trump's transition team. Marcus calls her “a veritable poster child of Obama-era corruption.”

She lied about her knowledge of the spying on Trump's team as well. When asked by Judy Woodruff of PBS if she was aware of it, she said, “I know nothing about this. I was surprised to see the reports.” We now know that she knew perfectly well about this and helped lead the effort. (The same could be said of Biden, of course, who even brought up the Logan Act on January 5, 2017, as a way to go after Flynn.) The new White House team is just counting on enough of us to move on from this.

Grenell hopes that in the last few days of the Trump administration, we’ll see a “treasure trove” of declassified documents that offer more details about the knowledge career officials had from the start that the “Russia” story was all phony and politically motivated. “Those voices are in the documents,” he said. Until now, bureaucrats have “classified them away."

Regardless of what is revealed, we can be sure of one thing: what we’re about to get, as of Wednesday, is Obama Administration 2.0. Like Obama 1.0, it will be so concerned with its own agenda that honesty will be its last consideration.

New "Is This Really News Dept"

By Mike Huckabee

The New York Times compared President Trump’s claims of election fraud to the “big lies” of Hitler and Stalin.

I don’t take that too seriously because I know the Times doesn’t really believe that Trump is Joseph Stalin. If they did, they would have written positive stories about him.

Biden's Coronavirus Relief Proposal

By Mike Huckabee

Last week, Joe Biden released a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief proposal. It would include another $1400 a person stimulus check, which added to the recent $600 payments would be a total of $2000.

There are more details at the link, but as usual, there’s not much point in getting too bogged down in the details. By the time it gets through the Congressional meat grinder (if it does), it will likely bear scant resemblance to what Biden proposed.

New Study Questions Mandatory Lockdowns

A new international study of ten nations by a group of Stanford researchers found that the ruinous mandatory lockdowns early in the COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus pandemic provided no clear, significant benefits over other voluntary measures, such as social distancing or travel reduction, in any country.

In a related story, with Joe Biden safely on his way to the White House (and although I’m sure it’s just a coincidence), Democrat Governors and Mayors are finally starting to question the wisdom of making their constituents continue suffering from endless business lockdowns.

I’m sure this also has nothing to do with the fact that Biden will be taking office amid a huge jump in unemployment benefit filings, due to the never-ending blue state business shutdowns.

President Joe Biden

By Mike Huckabee

In just a few days, Joe Biden will be sworn in as President after the most controversial, contested, and crooked election in our history. Just to make sure that none of the 74 million Americans who voted for President Trump forget how much they hate him and us, Democrats in Washington impeached the President for a historic 2nd time, using this time the phony excuse that he is responsible for the awful and inexcusable criminal assault on our Capitol by a group of anarchists who were a small number of the tens of thousands of people who attended a rally earlier in the day. Most were unaware that anything had even happened until they returned to their homes or hotels and saw it on the news. While President Trump could have and should have spoken sooner and more forcefully to denounce the riot, I’ve carefully read and listened to his entire speech that day. To say he caused is ludicrous. But don’t take MY word for it. The most distinguished constitutional scholars of our land who neither supported nor voted for Donald Trump have dismissed allegations of President Trump having incited a riot as nonsense. But Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and the angry mob of Congressional Democrats decided that impeaching Donald Trump in the hours before he leaves office will be good for the country. These are the same Democrats who joined with the media all last summer in actually defending and supporting the rioting and looting of American cities and the deadly assaults on police officers across the land. 

Conservatives condemned the lawless anarchy in our streets then and equally and forcefully condemned it when it happened in DC on Jan 6. There should be no double standards. But the left in America has gone beyond a double standard-they have NO standards. Just emotional outrage, hate and blind bigotry toward everyone who won’t surrender to their iron-fist. The 2nd phony impeachment is being done without any evidence presented, hearing, witnesses, or due process. Serial killers like Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer were given more due process than President Trump. And when a mob, whether it’s rioters or members of Congress and the media deny judicial process and rush straight to a verdict and sentencing, it’s not justice. This is one mob reacting to another mob and that is the logic of a lynching. I sure wish that members of Congress were as concerned about the destruction in the places of business owned by law-abiding citizens in Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis, New York, or Los Angeles as they were by the destruction of where THEY do business.

And while soon to be President Biden continues to claim he wants healing and unity, is that what he expects will result from the condescending rage directed toward the half of America who voted for President Trump? I’d love to see the country “come together” and act like America again, but I won’t march willingly behind those who truly believe voices like mine should be closed off from social media, or kept from employment and freely harassed in restaurants, shopping centers, or public places.

If Joe Biden wants to unify the country to respect the rule of law for all, stop Big Tech from crushing competitors and conservatives, and to move toward ending poverty, building roads, standing up to China, and taking care of our military, I’m all in. But if he keeps his pledge to push abortion even to the moment of birth, wants taxpayers to fund the folly of letting 7 year old kids surgically change their gender, opens the borders of our country with no controls, punishes work by taxing people who have jobs to redistribute their money to those who refuse to work, and forces churches and faith based colleges and organizations to surrender to views that violate the teachings of the Bible, then count me out. That’s not asking for my cooperation, but my surrender to an agenda that’s antithetical to my faith, my family, and my freedom. And that’s not a call for unity, but uniformity. It’s not asking me for tolerance, but obedience. And it’s not a call for healing, but more hurt and hate. And to that I’m pretty sure I speak for many of the 74 million Americans who will respectfully say, “No thanks.”

First, as reported on PJ MEDIA by Robert Spencer of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, Biden’s deputy secretary of state will be Wendy Sherman, whose main “accomplishment” was negotiating Obama’s Iran deal, which Obama still apparently views as the big star in his crown.

Next, Biden’s undersecretary for political affairs will be another Obama official whose name rings a bell: Victoria Nuland. Of these two, Biden said they “have secured some of the most defining national security and diplomatic achievements in recent memory. I am confident they will use their diplomatic experience and skill to restore America’s global and moral leadership. America is back.”

Back...to being what? I suggest back to being the same chumps we were before President Trump assumed office. Read Spencer’s piece for details of what Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said about the Iran deal two years ago. Iran was blatantly lying, he said, when they claimed to have no plans to construct nuclear weapons. The Iranians continued to work on expanding their nuclear weapons program, Project Amad, and to deny anything about this to US officials. So here we go again.

"We can now prove that Project Amad was a comprehensive program to design, build and test nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu said then. “We can also prove that Iran is secretly storing Project Amad material to use at a time of its choice to develop nuclear weapons.”

Spencer writes that “now Joe Biden is rewarding the chief architect of this mess with a promotion for her incompetence.” (Question: is it “incompetence” when an employee does exactly what her boss instructs her to do? Maybe that’s HIS incompetence.) “Nor is it Wendy Sherman alone,” Spencer continues. “The entire foreign policy arm of the Biden administration is set to be staffed by these failures, phonies and frauds. But with the establishment media doing everything it can to put the best possible face on the coming fiasco, most Americans will have no idea what is going on, or why.”

Grenell appeared on SUNDAY MORNING FUTURES with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the incoming administration.

About Susan Rice being appointed to head Biden’s White House Domestic Policy Counsel, he noted that she has no background whatsoever in domestic policy. She’d been on Biden’s short list for running mate, but this way of bringing her in was much less risky and doesn’t even require senate confirmation. “She is...somebody who is going to be incredibly influential,” Grenell said. As a former national security advisor, he said, “she knows that entire apparatus.”

They’d been making moves in the Obama administration towards making her secretary of state, but backed off because “she didn’t have the votes,” for senate confirmation, Grenell said. “I think the reality is, she’s going to be running foreign policy [and] domestic policy. She’s probably extremely happy that Kamala Harris is going to be preoccupied with the Senate, trying to manage 50-50, being the 101st senator there, and won’t have a lot of time to get into policy issues.”

"I think you need to watch Susan Rice very closely,” Grenell said. “She will be the shadow President.”

He noted how far left Biden has drifted in even the past five years. “The progressives have clearly taken over him, and I think that that’s why he won. They wanted someone who had a name, that they could control, and Susan Rice being right there at the White House, to be the shadow President, is probably exactly where she wants to be --- behind the scenes, and unchecked.”

Again, here we have it: in effect, the third term of President Obama. Susan Rice will be in the White House, positioned to run essentially everything.

On the 10th of this month, David Marcus wrote an opinion piece for the NEW YORK POST that talked about her upcoming role.

For those who have sort memories, Susan Rice participated not only in the repeated, blatant lying about what led to the Benghazi attack, but also in the “unmasking” of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn in phone calls that were appropriate for him to make as part of Trump's transition team. Marcus calls her “a veritable poster child of Obama-era corruption.”

She lied about her knowledge of the spying on Trump's team as well. When asked by Judy Woodruff of PBS if she was aware of it, she said, “I know nothing about this. I was surprised to see the reports.” We now know that she knew perfectly well about this and helped lead the effort. (The same could be said of Biden, of course, who even brought up the Logan Act on January 5, 2017, as a way to go after Flynn.) The new White House team is just counting on enough of us to move on from this.

Grenell hopes that in the last few days of the Trump administration, we’ll see a “treasure trove” of declassified documents that offer more details about the knowledge career officials had from the start that the “Russia” story was all phony and politically motivated. “Those voices are in the documents,” he said. Until now, bureaucrats have “classified them away."

Regardless of what is revealed, we can be sure of one thing: what we’re about to get, as of Wednesday, is Obama Administration 2.0. Like Obama 1.0, it will be so concerned with its own agenda that honesty will be its last consideration.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, having twice impeached President Trump without evidence, now apparently wants to prosecute Republican House members for allegedly aiding the Capitol rioters, again without evidence.

Pelosi’s desire to expel elected Representatives just for supporting what they assumed would be a peaceful rally or using their Constitutional power to challenge a vote they considered suspect was so over the top that even a liberal columnist in the Washington Post condemned it. He pointed out that under such a House precedent, “any member who helps to organize a mass rally that is disliked by a super majority of Congress could be at risk of expulsion or censure. We cannot have a democracy where minorities are subject to sanction when they legally protest against an existing majority.”

And here’s more on the evidence-free jihad against GOP House members:

I must be getting old. I remember when Democrats thought that convicting people without evidence was a bad thing – except certain Southern Democrats, who specialized in it.
