The great news is, there are many amazing options to stay connected to each other and to the news. They aren’t all as evolved as the multi-billion dollar corporations you are used to, but most are competent technically and already have many users. Also, you may find that some of the platforms provide better functionality than the legacy media you are leaving.
Note that Parler is currently down due the racketeering and collusion of Amazon, Google, and Apple to violate the First Amendment rights of millions of Americans.
Lastly, a word on two incidents relating to the breach of the Capitol building. One is the death of Officer Brian D. Sicknick, something the left is using to demonize the people who breached the Capitol. Allegedly, the officer died because of injuries sustained during the “insurrection.” Fine, tell us what the injuries were and why he died from them. Every news story on this incident is less than forthcoming. And while I have great sympathy for the fallen officer and his family, I likewise get the sense that the public is being manipulated about this incident. My suspicion is that he died of a heart attack.
The second incident involves the murder of Ashli Babbitt, an unarmed woman and fourteen year Air Force veteran who was executed by someone inside the Capitol Building. Since when are we using live ammunition to quell riots in this nation? We should be demanding to know who fired this shot and what are all the surrounding circumstances. This woman should not be forgotten. Indeed, she should be made a martyr on par with Crispus Attucks.
What happened Wednesday will be used by the people taking power to justify stripping you of the rights you were born with as an American: Your right to speak without being censored, your right to assemble, to not be spied upon, to make a living, and to defend your family. — Tucker Carlsonh
Yesterday Capitol Hill police murdered an unarmed peaceful protester engaging in her Constitutional right to protest. They stood down all summer while Antifa and BLM terrorist groups rampaged through cities across America. These weren’t the first shots though. The first shots were when Democrat James Hodgkinson fired on a group of Republican congresscritters at a charity baseball game seriously wounding Republican Steve Scalise. in 2017.
Yesterday we saw the so-called “Uniparty” – the professional politicians of both major parties who work together to ensure that the country is run according to their whims (or, rather, the whims of those who control them) – in action. Every politician, Republican or Democrat, who voted to confirm Joe Biden as our next President was deliberately denying – and defying – an overwhelming mountain of evidence that the Democratic Party stole the election from President Trump. Every one of them is complicit in electoral fraud. Every one of them must be held accountable for that.
The Republic is dead. Time for some real ‘resistance.’

If you are considering buying a WordPress plan—don’t. They ‘improved’ the post editor… improved it so much that it is unusable. The old one was simple and intuitive. This new one makes it difficult to do the most simple task… like preview. Takes three clicks now instead of one. Idiocy. Inserting an image now involves opening a huge sidebar and finding the insert image function. Previously it was right there at the bottom of the editor.
The new and ‘improved’ post editor reminds me of nothing so much as ‘Common Core’ math. Take a simple task and make it as difficult and complex as possible.
See? I thought I had finished my rant but wait! There’s more! I was going to add a category to this post but… I can’t find that function. It used to be in the right sidebar. There is no right sidebar now. Where the hell is the category function?
Wait! There’s more! I was going to publish this ‘as is’ and hit the Publish button. Did it publish? NO! A new sidebar opened with a pre-publishing checklist.
This is ridiculous!
In the debate over coronavirus policy, there has been far too little focus on the costs of lockdowns. It’s very common for the proponents of these interventions to write articles and large studies without even mentioning the downsides.
Here is a brief look at the cost of stringencies in the United States, and around the world, including stay-at-home orders, closings of business and schools, restrictions on gatherings, shutting of arts and sports, restrictions on medical services, and interventions in the freedom of movement.
All of this is good news to the Communist Democrat Party.
Whether we will even have an opposition Republican Party come 2024 is highly questionable. The nation is now going down the same road traveled by Venezuela, by Russia, by California, and many local urban American cities. Once these corrupt Democrats manage to game the system to their liking, they never let go.
6. Finally, that peaceful and trustworthy elections are likely no longer possible in America means Americans no longer have any peaceful options should the ruling powers do things that the public doesn’t like. Eventually, the response will be violence, and bloodshed, and brutality.
I am not calling for it. I am simply predicting that it will happen, all because the Democrats refused to accept the legality of the 2016 election and then used any means to steal the 2020 elections, and the Republicans stood by and let them do it.
7. And just remember, power corrupts, but absolute power corrupts absolutely. The Democrats are gaining that absolute power. They’re coming for you next.
Stock up on food, water, medicines and invest in precious metals like lead, copper, and brass.

So, if I were in the Emergency Room, the ER doctor might ask me these questions: Do you know anyone who isn’t feeling well? Have you been in close contact with them for more than 10 minutes? Have you attended any meeting with more than 10 people in the last 14 days? Have you been to church or a party? Have you visited a restaurant or a bar? Any YES epidemiologically qualifies me as a Covid case. More questions: Do you wear a face mask whenever you are out of your own home? in your car? in WalMart? at the park? while mountain biking? Any NO qualifies me as a Covid case epidemiologically.
You can see how easy it is to be classified as a Covid-19 case. And they haven’t even tested me yet. (Read the link to see why even testing wouldn’t save me.) They would report me as a Covid case even if I tested negative – I might not be positive “yet”.
All these reported ‘cases’ and ‘deaths’ from Wuhan flu are just more fake news.
