  • NBC Opinion: Trump's call to Georgia election officials highlights White House bunker mentality

    Adolf Hitler retreated to his Führerbunker as the Allies advanced into Germany in the spring of 1945, leaving Germans to their fates. Moammar Gadhafi holed up in his fortress on the outskirts of Tripoli, refusing to surrender when Libyans took up arms against him. And President Donald Trump has turned the White House into his own refuge as he desperately seeks to remain in power despite having lost the presidential election. Trump has followed an authoritarian, rather than a democratic, playbook as president. It is fitting that he would end up like some of history's best-known autocrats: hunkered down in...

    CNN anchor Jake Tapper blasted Republicans on his Sunday talking head show State of the Union for organizing a challenge to Biden electors for Wednesday’s joint session of Congress to certify the votes of the Electoral College. Tapper threw out words like sedition, coup and traitors to describe the effort by Republicans to ensure the 2020 presidential election was legitimate. Tapper said he had invited all twelve Republican senators who have said they will challenge Biden electors and that all had declined or did not respond when asked to appear on State of the Union. Tapper cited a Civil War...
  • The Top Five Most Suppressed News Stories Of 2020: There's no way that even as recently as four years ago anyone would have predicted just how abysmally irresponsible the media would become

    Back in the day, when I was managing editor at the Daily Inter Lake in Kalispell, Mont., I enjoyed the end-of-year ritual of voting in the Associated Press’s poll of the Top 10 news stories.When I started participating in the year 2000, my list would include many of the same stories that made the final AP list, although often with differences in ranking. But by the time I retired in 2018, my view of the news had sharply diverged from the AP’s consensus view. I’d become something of a gadfly by then, questioning what seemed to be an ever more...

    A D.C. hotel that is located blocks from the White House and, in recent months, has been frequented by the far-right group the Proud Boys announced Monday that it will be closed during the planned pro-President Trump demonstrations next week. The Hotel Harrington released a statement on Monday saying the hotel will shut down between Monday, Jan. 4, and Wednesday, Jan. 6, as Trump’s supporters plan to protest that Wednesday when Congress is scheduled to certify the election results. The hotel said it will not host guests except for long-term residents and it will provide refunds to all prepaid reservations...
  • COVID Stimulus: Newly Passed Relief Bill Too Late To Help Some Bay Area Businesses(You don't say, nor do you care)

    The second stimulus bill was signed into law over the weekend, offering cash for many Americans hit by the pandemic, extended unemployment benefits and a quarter-trillion dollar Paycheck Protection Program. For some businesses, it will be a lifeline to keep them afloat. For others, it is too little, too late. Primo’s Pizza in Danville invested a lot in outdoor dining and was a huge hit for a while…but now its outdoor venue is closed down. And because he had one good quarter, owner Drew Nichols isn’t sure he will even qualify for relief. “That feels miserable, because we did everything...
  • Safe harbor law locks Congress into accepting Biden’s win

    The Associated Press ^ | December 8, 2020 | By MARK SHERMAN
    WASHINGTON - Happy Safe Harbor Day, America. Other than Wisconsin, every state appears to have met a deadline in federal law that essentially means Congress has to accept the electoral votes that will be cast next week and sent to the Capitol for counting on Jan. 6. Those votes will elect Joe Biden as the country’s next president. It’s called a safe harbor provision because it’s a kind of insurance policy by which a state can lock in its electoral votes by finishing up certification of the results and any state court legal challenges by a congressionally imposed deadline, which...

    James O’Keefe, founder of Project Veritas, teased the release of tapes revealing CNN’s bias while on an editorial call with the network’s president Jeff Zucker. O’Keefe informed Zucker on the call that his organization had been recording the insider calls for months before inquiring “do you still feel you’re the most trusted name in news.” Zucker, failing to address O’Keefe’s question, responds “thank you for your comment. So, everybody, I think in light of that, we’ll set up a new system, and we’ll be back with you, we’ll do the rest of the call later” before appearing to end the...

    Data nerds on social media have spent the better part of two days wondering why the networks won’t just make a call. The outcome hasn’t been in doubt. Biden needed only to win Nevada and Pennsylvania to lock things down; the writing’s been on the wall in NV since early Thursday and the outcome in PA was so assured given the drift in mail ballots there that Decision Desk HQ called it 24 hours ago. Biden’s remarks last night were scheduled at 8 p.m. ET in the belief that a call would be made before then and he could address...

    The New Jersey Women For Trump Facebook group, which disappeared from Facebook on Saturday, is now back on the platform. The story of the group’s removal reached the President, who then tweeted at Facebook to reinstate the group. Priscilla Confrey, co-director of New Jersey Women For Trump, says Facebook did not send any notifications about the removal or explain why the group was reinstated today. Although the group was reinstated, Confrey said administrators have not been able to approve new member requests. (The group is private, not public, on the platform.) Facebook did not immediately respond to an inquiry from...

    "The Best Is Yet To Come",  is a powerful Trump campaign 2020 ad that was banned by Facebook.Facebook claims they are a public platform (section 230 of the 1996 Telecommunications Act) which means they cannot censor.  In return Facebook cannot be held legally liable for what is posted on thier web site. The Leftists at Facebook behave like a publisher that can censor and is leagally liable.  Facebook is trying to have it both ways.  They want the legal protection, but they want to censor at the very same time. https://twitter.com/dbongino/status/1322960983317487618

    A Washington Post story wrongly claimed the Trump administration accused Billie Eilish of “destroying our country” — then spread like wildfire among the entertainment industry. The article on Thursday — in part about hundreds of celebrities being vetted for a Trump administration coronavirus ad campaign — included a misattributed quote from the White House about Eilish. SNIP The flub was picked up by Vice editor Jill Krajewski, who noted that “an embarrassing number of music outlets” including Complex, NME, Consequence of Sound and The Fader aggregated the misreported Washington Post story.

    A right-wing offensive is underway to discredit social media companies just days before the election. What began as complaints about anti-conservative censorship by social media companies has now evolved into outright allegations of election interference, as high-ranking Republicans have accused online platforms of helping Democrats by way of their content moderation decisions. On Wednesday, the Senate Commerce Committee is set to grill the CEOs of Facebook (FB), Google (GOOG) and Twitter (TWTR) amid right-wing cries of partisanship and threats to change a critical law, known as Section 230, that protects the companies' ability to moderate content as they see fit....

    President Trump followed through after tweeting that he will publish an “unedited preview” of his "60 Minutes" sitdown to show viewers that the interview was a “vicious attempted ‘takeout’” by correspondent Lesley Stahl when he posted a portion of the interview on Facebook Thursday. “I will soon be giving a first in television history full, unedited preview of the vicious attempted ‘takeout’ interview of me by Lesley Stahl of @60Minutes,” Trump wrote. “Watch her constant interruptions & anger. Compare my full, flowing and ‘magnificently brilliant’ answers to their ‘Q’s.’” “60 Minutes” did not immediately respond to a request for comment....

    I knew, shortly after scheduled debate moderator and C-SPAN anchor Steve Scully claimed to have been hacked, that it was all over for him. Scully, who had been tapped by the Commission on Presidential Debates to host the second showdown between President Trump and Joe Biden before its cancelation, was criticized on Twitter by President Trump as being a NeverTrumper. Scully, a veteran of a cable network beloved by wonks and political geeks alike, could have just about asked anyone orbiting the Beltway to advise him what to. Naturally, what he did was confirm he was a NeverTrumper by asking...

    By almost every measure that political operatives, academics and handicappers use to forecast elections, the likely outcome is that Joe Biden will win the White House. Yet two weeks before Election Day, the unfolding reality of 2020 is that it’s harder than ever to be sure. And Democrats are scrambling to account for the hidden variables that could still sink their nominee — or what you might call the known unknowns. Republican registration has ticked up in key states at the same time Democratic field operations were in hibernation. Democratic turnout is surging in the early vote. But it’s unclear...

    BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — President Donald Trump’s doctor on Saturday painted a rosy picture of the president’s health as he remains hospitalized for coronavirus treatment. But that assessment was immediately contradicted by a person familiar with Trump’s condition, who said the president was administered supplemental oxygen on Friday at the White House. As well, Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, said the president went through a “very concerning” period Friday and the next 48 hours will be critical in terms of his care.

    Having forced myself to listen to most of the Republican National Convention (RNC) orations in late August, I was struck by what my daughter, who had done such work professionally, characterized as the program’s “underlying marketing strategy.” The GOP’s advisers seem to have pitched their message at the demographics among whom Trump has had the least support in the polls, namely suburban, college-educated women, and blacks. Trump, according to the polls, was losing the former group until recently by about 20 percentage points, and may be winning the votes of no more than 8 percent of blacks. The overall size...

    Facebook has restricted “distribution” of Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson’s page due to the “repeated sharing of false news.” The censorship comes just over a month before the presidential election. “Your Page has reduced distribution and other restrictions because of repeated sharing of false news. People will also be able to see if a Page has a history of sharing false news,” read Facebook’s notice. Facebook did not specify which post or posts had led to the decision.
