  1. I wouldn’t hold my breath, Tych, but isn’t it wonderful to know that one day there will be real justice along with grace and mercy to all who are written in the Lamb’s book of life?

  2. It’s amazing that an immigrant from South Africa is honoring the First Amendment, while Dems and the whole Biden Administration trash it.

  3. Where is our esteemed media? Staring at their feet thru guilt filled eyes.

    They helped build and push these very same lies, lies that some even on our side still believe. The greatest hoax in US political history.

    They did to Trump everything they were accusing the Russians of doing, trying to effect US elections thru lies, propaganda, and misinformation.

    People better wake up, because this trash will continue if they don’t. And the next time they use it it might be on a a candidate you like instead of the Bad Orange Man. This is their blueprint now.

    This is how you limit the message of the most powerful man in the world, and effect elections.

    Click a tweet and keep going, see what they put in their sausage.

  7. All the while the FBI was warning about “Russian interference” it was them we should have been looking at, exactly as Trump said.

    But no, because Orange Man Bad, even when he’s right.

    This was all one sided, the Dem side.

    “#Twitterfiles Part 3: Twitter Regularly Interacted With FBI/DHS To Restrict PRE-ELECTION Tweets

    Matt Taibbi: “During this time, executives were also clearly liaising with federal enforcement and intelligence agencies about moderation of election-related content… [W]e didn’t see one reference to moderation requests from the Trump campaign, the Trump White House, or Republicans generally.”

  8. Controlling the narrative, and the news you can see. Clearly anti-1st Amend……

    “#Twitterfiles Part 2: “Twitter employees build blacklists, prevent disfavored tweets from trending, and actively limit the visibility of entire accounts or even trending topics”

    The Twitterfiles prove what we all knew. Big Tech manipulates the public debate, and manipulated the 2020 election, including by killing the Biden family corruption story.”

  10. Almost had ’em this time!

    Not really.

    “Judge Declines DOJ Request To Find Trump Team in Contempt”

    https://www.newsmax.com/politics/trump-doj-law/2022/12/10/id/1099948/

    “A federal judge turned away a Department of Justice request to hold the office of former President Donald Trump in contempt for not complying with a grand jury subpoena regarding the return of classified documents to the National Archives, NBC News reported.

    According to the report, U.S. District Judge Beryl A. Howell for the District of Columbia made the ruling denying the DOJ’s request following a closed hearing in Washington Friday.”

    Womp, womp, womp….

  11. Nope.

    No Deep State here…..

    “Inside revolving door between Democrat Deep State and Big Tech”

    https://nypost.com/2022/12/09/inside-revolving-door-between-democrat-deep-state-and-big-tech/

    “Baker wasn’t alone as a former national security official in leading Twitter’s censorship efforts.

    The second installment of Twitter Files detailed the platform’s broader suppression of Wrongthink, referencing a Strategic Response Team tasked with “limit[ing] the reach of certain users.”

    One team member responsible, in his telling, for “resolving the highest-profile Trust & Safety escalations” — apparently by throttling the accounts of dissenters from COVID-ian orthodoxy like Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, and conservatives like Dan Bongino — is Jeff Carlton.
    Carlton, according to a since-deleted LinkedIn profile, served as an intelligence analyst for the CIA and FBI from 2014-2017.

    He came on as Twitter’s senior program manager for the Strategic Response Team in May 2021 and was elevated to its head in November.

    There are related Deep State-Big Tech ties with a nexus to the Twitter Files.

    Prominent signatories to the ex-intelligence officials’ debunked letter seeking to discredit the Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop as Russian disinformation, such as former Obama DNI James Clapper, CIA Director Leon Panetta, and Deputy Director Michael Morell, serve organizations representing Big Tech companies like Google.

    These ex-officials have publicly opposed federal legislation aimed at breaking up Big Tech. Perhaps Big Tech’s centrality in helping the Intelligence Community quash narratives it disfavors has something to do with its lobbying to help Big Tech maintain monopoly power over the digital public square.

    Democratic politicians, staffers and lawyers also had an inside line to Twitter, pushing for more aggressive “content moderation.” They found many sympathetic ears at social-media companies.

     Andy Stone, Meta’s communications director, who put out official word that Facebook would be suppressing the Hunter Biden laptop story, was previously a Democrat flack.

     Former Obama White House Press Secretary Jay Carney served as Amazon’s senior vice president of global corporate affairs from 2015 until this past summer.

     Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s daughters both work on Silicon Valley — Alison as a privacy and politics product market manager at Meta, and Jessica as a registered lobbyist for Amazon in New York.

     On the House side, Rep. Zoe Lofgren is a senior member of the House Judiciary Committee, which oversees Big Tech regulation. Her daughter works on Google’s legal team.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci revealed in testimony that his daughter previously worked as a software engineer at Twitter.

     Longtime Democrat operative John Podesta’s niece Lesley Podesta just resigned from Twitter’s “Trust and Safety Council.”

    The examples are myriad.”

  12. Like I said, no faith in these scummy types at all.

    “These 7 Trump-Critical GOP Senators Have No Plan To Deal With Unconstitutional, Election-Altering Censorship”

    “The Federalist asked the seven senators if they have a plan to remedy the unconstitutional censorship of voters and news during the 2020 election. Not one of them responded.”

    https://thefederalist.com/2022/12/08/these-7-trump-critical-gop-senators-have-no-plan-to-deal-with-unconstitutional-election-altering-censorship/

    “Seven Republican U.S. senators who slammed former President Trump for suggesting that new censorship revelations warranted a reconsideration of the 2020 presidential election results have no plan to address the First Amendment-violating censorship Trump was reacting to in “The Twitter Files.”

    More and more evidence is exposing how our corrupt FBI brazenly violated the Constitution by dictating to social media monopolies what speech to censor from public and private discourse ahead of the 2020 election. Yet GOP senators are more preoccupied with Trump talking about altering the Constitution than they are with the deep state committing actual violations of it.”

    “After revelations uncovered that Twitter colluded with the Biden campaign to censor content in the lead-up to the election and misused its “hacked material policy” to annihilate the Hunter Biden laptop story, Trump posted to Truth Social:

    So, with the revelation of MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, & the Democrat Party, do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION? A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution. Our great ‘Founders’ did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!

    Trump clarified his comments on Monday, saying that he does not want to terminate the Constitution, but that there was “‘MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION’” that has been “irrefutably proven in the 2020 Presidential Election” and “steps must be immediately taken to RIGHT THE WRONG.”

    “Instead of devising a plan to reckon with the 2020 election’s many issues or at least ensure election interference does not occur again, Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mike Rounds and John Thune of South Dakota, John Cornyn of Texas, Roy Blunt of Missouri, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, and Mitt Romney of Utah flew into hysterics over the former president’s social media post.

    Murkowski decried Trump’s comments as “a betrayal of our oath of office” and “an affront to our Republic.” Cornyn stated that the former president’s remarks were “irresponsible,” and Romney called Trump a “RINO” (“Republican in name only”). Thune condemned the president’s comments and added that it is a “golden opportunity” for 2024 rivals “to create some contrast.”

    McConnell, who is responsible for sabotaging GOP chances for a Senate majority, used the controversy to jab at Trump’s bid for the presidency: “Anyone seeking the presidency who thinks that the Constitution could somehow be suspended or not followed, it seems to me would have a very hard time being sworn in as president of the United States.”

    The Federalist asked all seven of these Trump-critical senators if they have a plan to remedy the unconstitutional and illegal censorship of voters and news during the 2020 election, or if they have a plan to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Not one of them responded.”

  13. Merchant of Death for a WNBA player.

    Seems legit. 🙄

    https://www.theblaze.com/fearless/oped/whitlock-russia-uses-brittney-griner-to-fleece-president-biden-in-the-bay-of-big

    “The Bay of BiG proves that critical race theory and diversity, inclusion, and equity harm America and its citizens.

    The Bay of BiG is my nickname for the lopsided trade the Biden administration executed for the release of WNBA player Brittney “Incarcerated” Griner. Griner was held for nine months in Russia and sentenced to nine years in a Russian prison for smuggling a small amount of hashish oil. President Biden surrendered notorious Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout for Griner’s freedom.

    An American jury convicted Bout, called the Merchant of Death, of conspiring to kill American citizens and providing aid to terrorist organizations. He spent a decade locked inside a U.S. penitentiary before being sprung on Thursday in exchange for Griner.

    The Merchant of Death for a WNBA player might be the worst trade in the history of American sports. It certainly rivals the incredible bounty of draft picks the Vikings gave the Cowboys for Herschel Walker and the $125,000 the Yankees gave the Red Sox for Babe Ruth.

    Let’s dig a little deeper and turn a bit more serious.

    In 2015, Griner pled guilty to domestic violence against her partner and WNBA peer Glory Johnson. In 2020, in reaction to the death of St. George Floyd, Griner pledged never again to stand for the national anthem and said the song had no place in American sports.

    Griner is not an American patriot. She’s an entitled, spoiled athlete who is comfortable flouting the law.

    So why did her release from a Russian prison take precedence over the release of former U.S. Marine Paul Whelan? Or teacher Marc Fogel? Russia accuses Whelan of being a spy. Fogel received a 14-year sentence in Russia for bringing a half-ounce of medical marijuana into the country. Fogel, who is 60 years old, was arrested in 2021.

    Griner jumped to the head of the line because the Biden administration and corporate media are driven by critical race theory and diversity, inclusion, and equity.

    CRT and DIE dictated that Biden go to unreasonable and dangerous lengths to win the release of Griner. She’s black and gay. She’s no more valuable to American freedom and safety than Whelan or Fogel, who are white men. Whelan and Fogel – a Marine and a teacher – actually contribute more to American society than a weed-smoking basketball player who promotes anti-American sentiment.

    Whelan and Fogel should be the priority.

    But absolutely no one cares about Fogel. He can rot in a Russian prison for the next 13 years, and it will draw little attention or sympathy.

    The Griner trade will force the Biden administration to cut an even worse trade for Whelan. The wheels are in motion for that as you read this. Brittney Griner’s “wife” talked about supporting Whelan. Leftists are publicly feigning support for Whelan now that Griner is released.

    Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons, arguably the best player in football, tweeted sincere outrage over Whelan not being part of the Griner deal. His handlers quickly made him backtrack and apologize.

    “Just spoke to some people that I respect and trust,” Parsons tweeted. “I should have been more educated on the topic and not tweeted out of emotion for my family and others who have served. For that I apologize. Also, if what I’m told about the attempts to bring Ret Marine Paul Whelan home are true then the best outcome was accomplished. I pray Mr. Whelan comes home but am extremely happy for Brittney and her family. I am not too prideful to admit when I’ve made a mistake.”

    This is the LGBTQ-BLM Alphabet Mafia flexing its political might.”
