    Google late Monday announced that its political action committee will not make donations this election cycle to members of Congress who voted against certifying the 2020 presidential election results. The decision comes after the tech giant implemented an internal review on its political contributions following the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, which was spurred by unsupported claims from former President Trump and his allies that the 2020 election was rigged in favor of President Biden. “Following that review, the NetPAC board has decided that it will not be making any contributions this cycle to any member of Congress...
  • GameStop Trading Could Be ‘Systemically Wrong,’ State Regulator Says

    The top securities regulator in Massachusetts thinks trading in GameStop stock, which has been skyrocketing, suggests there is something “systemically wrong” with the options trading surrounding the stock. The videogame retailer’s stock was up 93% on Tuesday and has roughly quadrupled in the past week. It was up another 40% in after-hours trading Tuesday, to eclipse $200. Traders have been bragging on online forums about taking large bets the stock using options—often out-of-the-money calls that pay off only if the stock soars. William Galvin, the Secretary of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, said in a statement to Barron’s that he’s been...
  • US Capitol Special Agent David Bailey Who Killed Ashli Babbitt is a Brazilian Immigrant and Black Lives Matter Militant (Truncated)

    Earlier today, REDPILED Media released an exclusive report identifying Ashli Babbitt’s killer as US Capitol Special Agent David Bailey — the same man who let US Rep. Steve Scalise get shot nearly to death in 2017. Now, REDPILLED Media has uncovered evidence confirming our previous reporting through self-incriminating Facebook posts, and revealing Agent Bailey as a Brazilian immigrant who has pledged his allegiance to the deadly Black Lives Matter movement — even going so far as vowing to murder Trump supporters

  • Anti-Trump Scholar: ‘Nearly Impossible’ to ‘Deprogram’ Millions of Trump Supporters

    Breitbart ^ | January 26 2021 | JOSHUA KLEIN
    On Monday, the Washington Post published an op-ed by columnist Brian Klaas whereby he expresses the near futility of attempting to “deprogram” millions of Trump supporters, claiming that many have “gone far enough down the rabbit hole of conspiratorial thinking.” The essay, titled “‘Why is it so hard to deprogram Trumpian conspiracy theorists?” depicts millions of Trump supporters as so devoted to “dangerous lunacy” that nearly all hope is lost of bringing them “back to reality.” Referring to President Trump as “a conspiracy theorist in chief” who “injected the toxin of baseless conspiratorial thinking straight into America’s political bloodstream,” the...
  • The Big Ugly Fat Fella flies into the future: Seventy years after the first B-52, the world's most brutal bomber is being refitted to clock up a century in service

    Flying in formation and dropping their mighty payloads together, the bombs from a B-52 attack fall so thickly that they look from a distance like a rain shower. With some 70,000 pounds of ordnance — up to 108 bombs in each plane — tumbling out of each B-52’s huge belly and from under its 185 ft wings, a carpet-bombing run by a Boeing Stratofortress leaves little in its wake. It pulverised cities in Vietnam in the 1960s, obliterated Iraq’s defences before Operation Desert Storm three decades later and scared the wits out of generations of Soviet leaders.

  • Biden issues 60 day moratorium on federal land drilling - despite saying he would NEVER ban fracking - after killing thousands of jobs by canceling the $9BN Keystone XL pipeline

    President Joe Biden is set to announce a wide-ranging moratorium on new oil and gas leasing on U.S. lands and waters, as his administration moves quickly to reverse Trump administration policies on energy and the environment and address climate change - but it will also lead to the loss of tens of thousands of jobs. Two people with knowledge of Biden´s plans outlined the proposed moratorium, which will be announced Wednesday. They asked not to be identified because the plan has not been made been public; some details remain in flux. The move follows a 60-day suspension of new drilling...

    Polk County Fire Rescue captain to be arrested when he returnsA Polk County paramedic is accused of stealing highly sought-after coronavirus vaccine vials, according to Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd. According to the sheriff’s office, a paramedic was arrested and accused of allowing three vials of the Moderna vaccine in his care to be taken by a supervisor and then falsifying documents to cover up the theft. Joshua Colon, 31, told detectives he was directed by his supervisor, a 17-year veteran fire captain who is expected to be arrested as well later on Tuesday, to take a break so the...
  • Visibly shaken, his thesaurus of misery exhausted... this was his darkest hour: Boris Johnson addressing the nation after 100,000 deaths from Covid-19 were confirmed

    For Boris Johnson this was his darkest hour. A moment for sombre reflection, as haunting as the sounds of muffled drums and Chopin's funeral march. The grim news that had broken just moments before – that the death toll from the pandemic had surpassed 100,000 Britons – had left the Prime Minister visibly shaken. His face was flushed, his hair seemed whiter than ever. This terrible milestone had, of course, been some time coming. Yet even this accomplished wordsmith struggled to summon the mots justes for the occasion. He intoned how hard it was 'to compute the sorrow contained in...

    With Democrats preparing for the Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., warned his colleagues that moving forward will only cause more damage to the nation. "I’d like to get this trial over sooner rather than later," Graham told "Hannity" on Tuesday. "To my Democratic colleagues, if you try to call one witness, you’re going to blow up the United States Senate. Don’t do that." Graham encouraged the opposition to get the "travesty over with" as soon as possible, especially since Trump has already left office. The South Carolina senator pointed out that not only...

    The Constitution clearly defines impeachment as a procedure for removing individuals from federal office. "Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States" Obviously the person must hold a government office at the time of the trial or the removal question is moot The Senate cannot remove a the person from an office the person doesn't hold. Nothing in the impeachment provision authorizes the Senate to try private citizens even those who once held government office. Our system...

    Sens. Tim Kaine and Susan Collins are privately pitching their colleagues on a bipartisan resolution censuring former President Trump, three sources familiar with the discussions tell Axios. Why it matters: Senators are looking for a way to condemn Trump on the record as it becomes increasingly unlikely Democrats will obtain the 17 Republican votes needed to gain a conviction in his second impeachment.

    China was the largest recipient of foreign direct investment in 2020 as the coronavirus outbreak spread across the world during the course of the year, with the Chinese economy having brought in $163 billion in inflows. China’s $163 billion in inflows last year, compared to $134 billion attracted by the United States, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) said in a report released on Sunday. In 2019, the United States had received $251 billion in inflows and China received $140 billion. China’s economy picked up speed in the fourth quarter, with growth beating expectations as it ended...

    When one talks about the Bundy Family, the first thing that springs to mind is the standoff in Nevada in 2014. However, perhaps even more important is the standoff and occupation at Oregon’s Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in 2016. Indeed, the two events are often conflated because Ammon Bundy is the son of Cliven Bundy, the man who stood up to the federal government over “grazing fees” on Bureau of Land Management land. The occupation was a highlight for both the militia and the sovereign citizen movement as well as proponents of states’ rights. The main argument from those occupying...

    Amateur investors piled further into niche stocks on Tuesday, sending professional short sellers scrambling to cover losing bets, with GameStop skyrocketing for a fourth straight day, thanks in part to Elon Musk. GameStop surged 50% in extended trade after Musk tweeted “Gamestonk!!”, along with a link to Reddit’s Wallstreetbets stock trading discussion group, where supporters affectionately refer to the Tesla CEO as “Papa Musk.” “Stonks” is a tongue-in-cheek term for stocks widely used on social media. GameStop’s after-hours surge added to a 93% jump during Tuesday’s roller coaster trading session, with the videogame retailer’s stock propelled by traders on Wallstreetbets,...

    You’ve probably never heard of Gareth Jones. You’ve certainly heard of the writer he inspired, and the classic dystopian novel that writer created. You were forced to read it, or at least the Cliff’s Notes, in high school. But shorn of its context, that novel lacks the full punch it could deliver. Mr. Jones (2019), starring Peter Sarsgaard and James Norton, directed by Oscar nominee Agnieszka Holland and written by Andrea Chalupa, provides that context in a must-see film. Mr. Jones is powerfully relevant today, even more than when it premiered in 2019. You have undoubtedly heard of “cancel culture,”...

    New York Times Reporter Maggie Astor changes her tune, originally said Veritas videos have “solely” unnamed sources but now says they have “many” unnamed sources. Astor said she labelled the videos “deceptive” because she was unable to corroborate the videos on her own. Astor: “I know of Project Veritas and, before writing my articles about the Video, I knew that it had a reputation for publishing deceptively-edited videos and had been publicly criticized many times for doing so.” New York Times legal team cite Wikipedia to justify mischaracterizing Project Veritas. New York Times legal team excused Astor’s article as an...

    How do you judge your circumstances, do you only consider what you pickup through your senses only. If you do that you will miss out on a lot of what God has for his children. The scripture clearly says for we walk by faith and not by sight(senses) 2Corinthians 5:7. That means it's either one or the other for faith is independent of your senses. If you are looking to your senses to tell you what the truth is you are not in faith. Like, in 2Kings 6 when the man of God Elisha would tell the king of Israel...
