Twitter has refused to unlock the New York Post’s account since Wednesday unless the outlet deletes six tweets about its reporting on 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, the Post reported.
Both the San Francisco-based social media platform and Facebook came under fire this week after the two blocked users from sharing a Post article showing purported communication between 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and an adviser to a Ukrainian energy company.
The younger Biden’s work in the country while his father was vice president was at the heart of President Trump’s impeachment trial earlier this year. House Democrats accused Trump of improperly attempting to condition U.S. aid on an investigation into Biden, then a contender in the party’s presidential primaries, by the Ukrainian government……………….
And on that note
The increasing brazenness with which the various Big Tech behemoths distort their search algorithms to hide conservative viewpoints, undermine conservatives through “shadow banning” and weaponize the sanctimonious and self-serving “fact-checking” cottage industry to suppress conservative voices has long been clear.
The 2017 dismissal of Google engineer James Damore exposed the search giant as an “ideological echo chamber” (Damore’s words) — a company that, incidentally, has a jaw-dropping 87.3 percent share of the US search market. Facebook has outright banned anti-lockdown pages and removed posts supportive of the besieged teenager Kyle Rittenhouse. Twitter affixes “fact-checking” warnings exclusively to the tweets of conservatives.
Conservative angst over Big Tech duplicity has now reached an apogee. Facebook and Twitter this week ganged up against the New York Post, founded by Alexander Hamilton and the nation’s oldest continually operating daily newspaper, in galling fashion.
The Post broke a bombshell story about Hunter Biden’s dealings with Ukrainian energy company Burisma — and the extent to which then-Vice President Joe Biden’s diplomatic efforts in the Eastern European nation might have been tainted because of it.
Facebook dutifully blacklisted the story — with its policy communications manager having the chutzpah to boast about it. Twitter followed its older corporate cousin’s lead, effectively banning in toto access to and sharing of the story.
It is, of course, fair game — indeed, it is a good thing — for public-spirited media watchdogs to closely scrutinize the Fourth Estate’s veracity (though one cannot help but wonder where this scrutiny was for the myriad journalistic outlets that reproduced, no questions asked, the infamous and reckless Hillary Clinton/Democratic National Committee bought-and-paid-for Steele dossier).
But The Post is not exactly a “fringe” outlet, and no one seems to be outright denying The Post’s reporting — not even Hunter Biden himself.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will assuredly have to answer, via Senate subpoena, for what appears to any reasonable observer to be a deliberate, partisan attempt to quash a prospective “October surprise” and elevate one particular presidential candidate over another.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) has even raised the possibility that the shameless censorship may amount to in-kind political contributions in violation of extant campaign-finance law. Continue reading “”
“Public Health” is a deceitful hypocrisy.
Other events must get ‘advance’ permission to exceed 25 people
Want to go marching for racial justice? Don’t worry about Boston University’s 25-person gathering limit in the name of COVID-19 prevention.
Want to go marching for any other cause? Hold it, bub.
The private university seriously told Campus Reform that it’s evaluating Black Lives Matter gatherings under Massachusetts guidance on gatherings for political expression, while subjecting any other request to exceed its own 25-person limit to bureaucratic whim. Continue reading “”
Over the last year, I’ve tried to be fair to Dr. Anthony Fauci. I understand that a situation like the current pandemic is unpredictable and that even well thought out positions can often be wrong. But what I’ve never had patience for is arrogance in failure from bureaucrats who we have no way of holding to account because it takes an act of God to remove a government employee.
Dr. Fauci is now at that place. He doesn’t deserve to have his job anymore, leaving a string of highly damaging failures in his wake which he’s now couching in an incredibly insulting arrogance.
Here’s one of his latest whoppers.
Seriously? Dr. Fauci says he can’t think of any reason there would be “excess deaths” this year besides Covid pic.twitter.com/VsEjSvIptK

We finally have proof of an American taking money from sketchy Russians but it’s Hunter Biden, not the Trump family. Another example of how the Democrats always use projection to accuse others of what they’re actually guilty of.

Senate Republicans released a report Wednesday detailing the extensive business dealings that Hunter Biden pursued with politically connected foreign nationals while his father Joe Biden was serving as vice president.
The 87-page interim report is the product of a months-long probe in which members of the Senate Homeland Security and Finance Committees and their staff reviewed more than 45,000 pages of Obama administration records and interviewed eight witnesses, many of whom are current or former U.S. officials.
“The Treasury records acquired by the Chairmen show potential criminal activity relating to transactions among and between Hunter Biden, his family, and his associates with Ukrainian, Russian, Kazakh and Chinese nationals,” the report reads. “In particular, these documents show that Hunter Biden received millions of dollars from foreign sources as a result of business relationships that he built during the period when his father was vice president of the United States and after.” Continue reading “”
Putting the virtue signaling morons right where they deserve to be, between the proverbial ‘rock and a hard place’. Ahhh HAHAHAHAHAH!
The Department of Education has informed Princeton University that it is under investigation following the school president’s declaration that racism was “embedded” in the institution.
President Christopher Eisgruber published an open letter earlier this month claiming that “racism and the damage it does to people of color persist at Princeton” and that “racist assumptions” are “embedded in structures of the University itself.”
According to a letter the Department of Education sent to Princeton that was obtained by the Washington Examiner, such an admission from Eisgruber raises concerns that Princeton has been receiving tens of millions of dollars of federal funds in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which declares that “no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
Eisgruber’s letter branding the 274-year-old university racist came after a summer of unrest rife with race riots and an open letter from hundreds of Princeton faculty members who wrote, “Anti-Black racism has a visible bearing upon Princeton’s campus makeup.” The admission was followed by dozens of “anti-racist” policy change demands. Among them were calls for select faculty race quotas and to “reconsider” the use of standardized testing for admissions. Continue reading “”
Rules for thee, But Not For MEE!!!
I will make this as clear as I can. Restrictions on weapons should go the other way, not from gubbermint to the people. The 2nd amendment is a restriction on gubbermint, not a ceding of power from the people.
VP hopeful Kamala Harris- who says she supports defunding police – is seen in Miami being protected by dozens of cops as well as a Secret Service agent carrying an assault rifle, a weapon she’s vowed to ban
Also seen with Harris was her husband Doug Emhoff who emerged behind her wearing a white mask and being escorted by security.
Harris made the vow in April 2019 during a CNN town hall, where she said, ‘Upon being elected, I will give the United States Congress 100 days to get their act together and have the Courage to pass reasonable gun safety laws. And if they fail to do it, then I will take executive action.’
At the time, Harris said that if people ‘want to go hunting, that’s fine’ but said she would advocate for new gun safety laws including requiring universal background checks…………
A Representative Republic protects the rights of all citizens, not just the majority, elite or privileged, and is founded on the principle of electing individuals to represent the people. And only elections provide the opportunity for change.
Gov. Newsom, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Mayors Eric Garcetti, London Breed, Darrell Steinberg, and Libby Schaff, appear to show no concern over the economic destruction in the state at the macro and micro level. They show no compassion or empathy for those Californians who are losing their entire livelihoods, or the widespread unemployment, while they and other government employees seem to be enjoying life as usual.
One slight quibble:
“And only elections provide the opportunity for change.”
No, there is another solution. The question is, will these morons dabbling in tyranny understand their hypocrisy and change their minds before someone decides to take an opportunity to change them using a different method?
Last week we had Salongate when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was caught on security cameras visiting a San Francisco hair salon for a wash and blow-out, despite Gov. Gavin Newsom’s business lockdown orders, and local ordinances keeping hair and nail salons closed during the coronavirus pandemic.
Now we find out gyms located inside of government buildings in San Francisco have been open for months, despite privately owned gyms and fitness centers still ordered closed because of Gov. Newsom’s business lockdown over coronavirus.
If that is not enough, Central Coast Congressional Candidate Andy Caldwell reported to the Globe that the Santa Barbara Unified School District allowed the children of teachers and district employees to return to in-class learning, in a secret carve-out exemption at Franklin, McKinley, and other elementary schools in the district.
No one wants to be condescended to and lectured by foolish politicians who aren’t adhering to the rules and restrictions they put in place. Continue reading “”
“Walls for me, but not for thee!”
It’s just Der Gretchenführer™ showing off her hypocrisy again.
Despite her vocal opposition to building border walls to keep Americans safe from illegal immigration, Democrat Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is having an eight-foot high, electrified fence built around her official residence to keep out unwanted visitors.
The fence is just one part of a $1.1 million, taxpayer-funded security upgrade to the governor’s residence, The Detroit Free Press reports:
In recent weeks, crews have been working to build what appears to be an eight-foot-tall fence around the governor’s residence property. Last week, a sign on the site where crews were on the job warned, “Danger. High voltage. Unauthorized persons keep out.”
“It’s unclear how much is being spent on the perimeter fencing that’s being installed,” the paper reports.
As The Washington Free Beacon notes, Gov. Whitmer has called the construction of barriers on the U.S. borders too costly and ineffective:
Whitmer, a Biden surrogate, has attacked the idea of using barriers to prevent illegal immigration. She called President Donald Trump’s border wall “costly and ineffective” in February 2017, nearly a week after suggesting that money for the wall would be better spent elsewhere.
“$40 BILLION for the wall,” Whitmer tweeted. “Think how many kids that would educate, how many roads, bridges and pipes it would fix.”
Whitmer also campaigned against Trump’s wall in 2018, saying, “it is time we get back to building bridges, not walls.”

San Francisco gyms have been forced by the liberal city to remain closed for months as part of measures implemented to reduce the spread of coronavirus. But city leaders have applied different rules for fitness facilities used by city employees.
According to KNTV-TV, city-owned indoor gyms have been open for months, all while privately owned indoor gyms have struggled to stay afloat. The result, KNTV reported, is “crushing private gym owners.”
Daniele Rabkin, who owns Crossfit Golden Gate, told KNTV the city’s actions are “shocking” and “infuriating.” Continue reading “”
What was that book by Kennedy; Profiles in
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is asking for an apology from her salon — and what it did to her hair has nothing to do with it.
On Tuesday, Erica Kious shared a security video of a maskless Pelosi getting a haircut inside her San Francisco salon despite the fact that the area only allows outdoor haircuts right now; Kious also admitted she knew about the appointment ahead of time and let it happen. Pelosi wouldn’t apologize to Kious or to her critics on Wednesday, instead asking Kious to apologize to her instead.
“I take responsibility for trusting the word of a neighborhood salon I’ve been to over the years many times,” Pelosi said on Wednesday, claiming the salon told her it could take one customer at a time. “As it turns out, it was a setup, so I take responsibility for falling for a setup,” she continued. “I think that this salon owes me an apology, for setting me up.” Continue reading “”

Rules for thee, but not for ME!!
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) visited a hair salon in San Francisco on Monday despite the Wuhan coronavirus regulations that closed salons throughout the city. Salons in Pelosi’s district have been closed since March when the pandemic began.
According to a video obtained by FoxNews.com, Pelosi visited eSalon for a wash and blowout. In the footage, Pelosi is seen in a salon cape, with wet hair and no face mask. According to coronavirus rules in California, stylists aren’t allowed to blow dry inside a building.
The owner of the salon, Erica Kious, decided to share the footage because of the double standard. Continue reading “”
“You blame Trump for somehow inciting leftist riots in leftist cities in leftist states inspired by a wholly false leftist narrative……” thing again
Joe Biden used his first in-person campaign appearance outside of the Delaware region on Monday to blame President Donald Trump for the violence and unrest ravaging America’s cities.
The former vice president, who has remained secluded at home since the start of the novel coronavirus pandemic earlier this year, commenced in-person campaigning on Monday with a speech in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

In his remarks, Biden addressed the mounting social unrest that has swept most of the country since the shooting last week of Jacob Blake by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
While the former vice president spent a portion of his speech criticizing violence and urging supporters to stand against it “in every form it takes,” Biden claimed the blame for such disorder rested with the current commander-in-chief. Continue reading “”
Now, the article is from the Babylon Bee, a site noted for its high satire, but what does it say when their satire becomes more and more reality?
The antifagoons are the real fascists. And they’re so lacking in self-awareness they don’t even realize how ludicrously hypocritical they now are.
The people who are telling us that Trump must accept the election results:
(even though they didn’t in 2016)
Hillary Clinton to Biden: Don’t concede if the election is close.
“Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances because I think this is going to drag out,” Clinton warned.
Hillary Clinton is predicting Donald Trump’s reelection effort will be a messy affair, and the former Democratic candidate has some advice for Joe Biden: If the race is close, don’t concede.
Speaking with Jennifer Palmieri for Showtime’s “The Circus,” Clinton said Trump would likely try to take the election by going after absentee voting. She emphasized that even a small margin of votes can have major consequences, harking back to her experience winning the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes and still losing in the Electoral College.

demoncrap hypocrites, but I repeat myself
That kind of double talk won’t shake the commitment of most Jewish Democrats to vote against Trump. But it does give the lie to the claims that Biden opposes anti-Semitism while Trump supports it. Of course, that smear had no validity anyway since Trump has repeatedly condemned anti-Semitism, has done more to fight it on college campuses than any president and has led the most pro-Israel administration in the country’s history.
Biden can’t have it both ways on Sarsour and anti-Semitism
After a spokesman distanced the Democrat from a prominent anti-Semite who spoke during their convention, others in the campaign apologized to her supporters.
One of the major talking points for Democrats in 2020 has been their attempt to link President Donald Trump to anti-Semitism. That effort intensified during the Democrat’s virtual nominating convention when, at least during the primetime segments, the emphasis was on blasting Trump as an ally of extremists and putting forward Joe Biden as a model of decency. In order to make that charge stick, Democrats have made dubious claims about Trump’s dog-whistling to right-wing anti-Semites while ignoring problems in their own party.
But while the prime time schedule made the case for Biden as a centrist, the DNC’s daytime events shown online were aimed at the party’s grassroots activists. That meant a steady diet of political extremism designed to appease a left-wing base that is enthusiastic about defeating Trump, but not excited about Biden. And it is the aftermath of one such dose of radicalism — a speech given by former Women’s March leader and BDS activist Linda Sarsour — that is calling into question the sincerity of the Biden campaign’s rhetoric about Israel and anti-Semitism.
Sarsour spoke at the DNC’s Muslim Delegate Assembly last week. When it was pointed out that her presence on the schedule contradicted the Democratic campaign’s stance against anti-Semitism, a Biden spokesman denounced Sarsour and distanced the candidate from her. Continue reading “”
While continuing to point fingers at conservatives – and, of course, President Trump – for failing to care for poor and minority communities, it appears Planned Parenthood has quietly tried to scrub their own blood-covered hands clean of their racist history – and without anyone noticing.
For instance, it seems as though the taxpayer-funded abortion giant has quietly stopped handing out the Margaret Sanger Award, a prize named for after their founder who was a known eugenicist who targeted black children for extermination. The National Catholic Register has noted that while Planned Parenthood’s own website continues to claim the award is given out “annually,” there hasn’t actually been a recipient since 2015, when it was given to abortionist Willie Parker (who was later accused of sexual assault).
The year before that, it was given to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Continue reading “”
