    Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) introduced legislation designed to rein in Big Tech censorship of Americans, telling such companies they’ll be getting “no more free passes.” Rubio issued a statement to the Daily Caller in which he accused tech companies and social media platforms of having “openly interfered in our elections” and “baselessly” censored important topics. The bill – dubbed the DISCOURSE Act (Disincentivizing Internet Service Censorship of Online Users and Restrictions on Speech and Expression) – would remove section 230 protections for Big Tech companies that use certain practices and hold them “accountable.”

    Rebekah Jones‘ Twitter suspension saga took a bizarre turn late Monday night after the embattled data designer announced that she’s running for Congressman Matt Gaetz‘s seat. Jones, a former Florida Department of Health (DOH) employee who was fired for repeatedly violating the agency’s policy about communicating with the media, made the out-of-left-field announcement on social media mere hours after she was suspended from Twitter for violating rules against “platform manipulation and spam.” Jones also placed the crosshairs on Governor Ron DeSantis, calling the Republican governor a “sociopathic liar.” “Didn’t want to announce it this way, but since DeSantis is now...
  • Pro-McConnell PAC May Have Something To Say About Trump 2022 Endorsements

    As 2022 gets closer, most Republicans know that Donald Trump plans to be an integral part of the campaign by endorsing candidates. But he may have some competition regarding which candidates have a better chance of beating Democrats. The Senate Leadership Fund is aligned closely with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). While they are only on the opposite side of Trump in one race so far, (SLF has endorsed Lisa Murkowski) that could quickly change as the campaigns get under way. Whose assessment will have more bite, the McConnell wing or the Trump wing?
  • The GOP’s Missed Opportunity On Infrastructure Now Costs Us Big Time

    Unquestionably, much of the Biden infrastructure plan is an unmitigated disaster. Brad Polumbo has an excellent article up that highlights some of the most egregious spending provisions of the Biden plan. They include $10 billion to create a “Civilian Climate Corp,” $20 billion to advance “environmental justice,” and $100 billion to make schools greener by doing things like eliminating paper plates. The truth is that while the Biden plan is a disaster, it exists – in part – because of the GOP’s own refusal to deal with the issue of infrastructure when we held the House, Senate, and the White...

    Joe Biden finally gives the state of the union address. He seems fine. Very articulate. He even seems to have more hair. What was all the fuss? Unlike this guy. Yes, this guy loved our military. He knows the difference between a man and a woman. Sure, we all felt safe. Sure, we had energy independence. Sure, we were building a wall and securing the border. Sure we had China on the ropes. Sure, we had historic job growth and low taxes. BUT! Joe Biden doesn't tweet mean things! Count your blessing people. No more mean tweets! Yes, Joe...

    According to a new poll, nearly half of Republicans say they will leave the Republican Party to join a third-party created and led by former President Donald Trump.

Just 27 percent of Republicans said they would stick with the GOP, and the rest are undecided. "We feel like Republicans don't fight enough for us, and we all see Donald Trump fighting...
  • Biden Administration Supports Reparations Study As New Bill Is Introduced In Congress

    President Joe Biden’s administration is lending support to a study of reparations for African-Americans, with the effort part of new Democratic legislation to create a commission on the controversial issue. The Associated press reported on Wednesday that a House panel heard testimony on a bill to create the commission that would examine the history of slavery in the U.S. and offer solutions, like reparations. According to Reuters, Biden stated last year that “we must acknowledge that there can be no realization of the American dream without grappling with the original sin of slavery, and the centuries-long campaign of violence, fear,...

    Last year Jeremy Haroldson, the dynamic Pastor of “Impact Ministries” of Wheatland Wyoming, came to the realization that he and fellow Christians, both in his congregation and throughout the area, were clearly not being represented by the “business as usual” mindset of either the Republican “Establishment” dominated Wyoming legislature, or Dan Kirkbride, their district’s representative at the time. So Haroldson made the bold move of challenging and defeating Kirkbride in the August 2020 Republican primary election. He then went on to win the general in November.This sent shock waves throughout the state legislature. Concurrently with Haroldson, a dozen other entrenched...

Our job is keeping the win for you,’ keeping them from cheating their way into defeating...
