    Old habits die hard, and now it’s time for the GOP’s habitual support of big business to die, and to die hard. Look around – the corporations have decided it’s a great time to use their power against us. There used to be a kind of gentleman’s agreement – they stay out of our business and we stay out of theirs. But they broke that agreement. They decided to go all in. And it’s no coincidence that the political positions they have taken conform exactly to those of the Democrat Party. So, the hell with them. This change has been...

    Facebook and Instagram removed an interview with former President Donald Trump by his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, simply because it “featured Trump speaking” and the “voice of Donald Trump,” Facebook said in an internal email. As big tech companies continue their bid to cancel the ex-commander-in-chief, audio from the podcast “The Right View With Lara Trump,” was yanked from Facebook Tuesday night and reportedly later removed by Instagram. Lara Trump, who also contributes to Fox News, shared a screenshot of an email sent by a Facebook employee, saying the company would be taking down the interview.

I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future.”

    Today’s blacklisters obsess over the injustice of others so much that they can’t see their own. Hey,” the bartender says of C3PO and R2D2. “We don’t serve their kind here.” Forty-four years later, the Palpatines of the Star Wars empire say the same thing to rebels. Disney wimps fired Gina Carano over social media for an opinion she expressed on social media. When did we reach the point where the latter rather than the former became unacceptable? The former MMA fighter starring in The Mandalorian noted on social media that before the Nazis rounded up the Jews they incited ordinary...
