The Facebook Oversight Board ruled earlier today that former president Donald Trump is gone from its platform – for good, it appears. Throw in Instagram.
The statement released by the Board is a bunch high-minded sounding goop. Read the decision here. Bottom-line: Banishing Trump when he was president was a powerplay. Keeping Trump off Zuckerberg’s platforms is – yes, you guessed it – a powerplay. It’s a powerplay premised on a Big Lie.
Here’s the line coming from the very big brains out of DC and Wall Street: Inflation worries are… inflated. The economy is rebounding – in fact, beginning to surge (thanks to former President Donald Trump’s economic recovery policies, but don’t expect the establishment to give him any props). Hence, with demand climbing, supply chains are being hard-pressed. Higher demand + crimped supply = higher costs. But, no worries, that’s only a short-term phenomenon. Once supply catches up to – or exceeds – demand, costs will level off and decline.
Joe Biden’s string pullers in the White House are tenacious in trying to punish us for wanting to exercise our freedoms as Americans. Yesterday, their marionette (none other than the oft befuddled Joe Biden) threatened to deprive us bad boys, girls, and trans of July 4 celebrations this summer if we don’t knuckle under and be vaccinated.
If you live in a red state – Florida, Texas, and Mississippi are on my mind – where your governor has decided that lockdowns (even partial) and mask mandates are pretty much wastes of times, count yourself lucky. If you live in a blue state – oh, say, New York, Pennsylvania, California, New Jersey – with a petty tyrant for governor, an inert or rubber-stamp legislature, and courts controlled by make-the-law-up Democrat judges, you’re still being forced to knuckle under, to one degree or another.
Well, yes, it happened, and fraud expert Jay Valentine remains hot on the trail. Some folks may say, “Does last year’s elections fraud matter now? Trump was deposed. Biden is in the White House. Democrats, the left, and plutocrats are trying to destroy our freedoms, ripping apart our social fabric, and wrecking the economy. Shouldn’t all that be our focus?”
Joe Biden’s much anticipated news conference was held Thursday afternoon. Why was it much anticipated? Because Biden is into three months in the White House and hasn’t had a presser prior to yesterday’s event. By contrast, President Trump made himself available to the media routinely and without reservations. He sparred and battled with the nitwits who makeup today’s uber-biased – yet gravitas-free – press corp. That’s what a real leader does.

The Biden administration has enjoyed no honeymoon. The cabal that addled Joe Biden fronts really didn’t want one. Bridge-building, comity, and compromise are passé. What Ron Klain, Susan Rice, and a knot of plutocrats and “progressives” who pull Joe’s strings want are crises. Manufactured crises are just as good as the real deals. They’re opportunities not to be wasted.
Jay Valentine’s article at today’s American Thinker deserves a shout out. It’s disturbing, because what Valentine suggests is that the massive fraud in the 2020 presidential elections (at least) amounts to “sovereign crime.” In other words, crimes that were either actively or passively engaged in by those in government. A public-private partnership in stealing the elections existed, which makes it profoundly disturbing. And it’ll happen again… if big changes don’t happen soon enough.
My first impression of Joe Biden’s Thursday night speech was: “Who put a mortician in charge of crowd control?”
That’s how the oft-befuddled Joe came off: a dour, droning purveyor of weepy – and manipulative – sentiment and gloom. Spring is about to spring, but for Joe and his Democrats, it’s Mourning in America. A perpetual gray hangs over these United States because power-tripping Democrats mean to plum this “crisis” for everything they can squeeze out of it.
I remarked to a colleague the other day that doesn’t it seem creepy that anytime Joe Biden surfaces for a – fleeting – public appearance, more often than not, Kamala Harris is lurking in the background? Does it not seem like an exec who’s privately informed his higher ups that he plans to retire but will slow walk it to give his heir apparent a chance to get familiar with whatever she needs to become familiar with?
