  • Former Fed Prosecutor Seeks Pledge From “Every Business In America” That 2020 Election Was “Accurate”

    03/21/2021 7:25:28 PM PDT · by bitt · 92 replies
    “The final piece asks companies to ‘not support, donate to or endorse politicians, political campaigns or political action committees that promoted false conspiracy theories surrounding the 2020 presidential elections (or otherwise acted in ways contrary to a representative democracy)’.” A former federal prosecutor, Glenn Kirschner, has launched a campaign to force “every business in America” to take a pledge that states, in part, that “The 2020 presidential election was free and fair, and produced accurate, reliable results.” Any American business refusing to take this pledge, regardless of their own personal beliefs, will presumably be subjected to the cancel mob.

  • Joe Biden freezes billions of dollars of arms sales to the Middle East including F-35s to the UAE and smart bombs for Saudi Arabia

    President Joe Biden's administration has temporarily paused some pending arms sales to U.S. allies in order to review them, a U.S. State Department official said on Wednesday. Reviews of this sort are typical for a new administration, but Donald Trump's administration was doing deals down to the wire, including one for 50 stealthy F-35 jets made by Lockheed Martin as a side deal to the Abraham accords inked only moments before Biden was sworn into office. The Department is temporarily pausing the implementation of some pending U.S. defense transfers and sales under Foreign Military Sales and Direct Commercial Sales to...

    Race dominates early days of Biden presidency: 'It's like the Great Society for identity politics'President Biden on Wednesday said “environmental justice” for people of color will be a central feature of his efforts to combat climate change, again putting skin color and racial justice front and center in his early policy and personnel decisions.Mr. Biden’s early focus on what he calls “systemic racism and white supremacy” in America generated pushback from critics and scholars who say they don’t need a lecture from the commander-in-chief about the country’s racial history.“It’s like the Great Society for identity politics,” said Mike Gonzalez, a...

    Host Trevor Noah said Thursday night on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” that Democratic politicians were being hypocritical by ignoring their own coronavirus restrictions. Noah was highlighting a CNN report on the difference between the actions and mandates of San Francisco Mayor London Breed (D-CA), Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA), Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl (D), San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo (D-CA), Denver Mayor Michael Hancock (D-CO), and Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY).
  • Among first acts, Biden to call for 100 days of mask-wearing

    Pennlive ^ | 3 December A.D. 2020 | ALEXANDRA JAFFE
    Joe Biden said Thursday that he will ask Americans to commit to 100 days of wearing masks as one of his first acts as president, stopping just short of the nationwide mandate he’s pushed before to stop the spread of the coronavirus. The move marks a notable shift from President Donald Trump, whose own skepticism of mask-wearing has contributed to a politicization of the issue. That’s made many people reticent to embrace a practice that public health experts say is one of the easiest ways to manage the pandemic, which has killed more than 275,000 Americans. The president-elect has frequently...

    Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Friday reiterated his apology for how the company handled an unverified New York Post report claiming to contain a “smoking gun” email related to presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son. “Straight blocking of URLs was wrong, and we updated our policy and enforcement to fix. Our goal is to attempt to add context, and now we have capabilities to do that,” Dorsey said in a tweet. The story from the Post story alleges then-Vice President Biden’s son Hunter Biden attempted to introduce to a top executive at a Ukrainian company Hunter worked for to...

    During a recent session conducted over Zoom, my therapist told me I was “glowing.” In the middle of a pandemic. I struggled to explain why until she prodded, “No crazy experiences with white people this month?” “Not that I can immediately recall,” I replied. That’s when it became clear: I’m doing better these days because staying home alone and practicing social distancing has meant I’m avoiding many of the racist encounters that used to plague my daily life.

"That was not what the vice president said in terms of those words, and if we had listened to the earlier conversation, we would know that the vice president wants to put his record forward. He knows that everyone has their own historical, moral standing on...

    In the annals of piggishness, not much beats what's coming out of Joe Biden's mouth about Rush Limbaugh and "decency." According to Fox News: Democratic hopeful Joe Biden slammed conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh as undeserving of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and criticized President Trump's motives for awarding it at the State of the Union on Tuesday night. Biden, speaking to CNN's Anderson Cooper at a town hall event in New Hampshire on Wednesday, said Trump's decision to award the highest civilian honor in the nation to Limbaugh was "driven more by trying to maintain [his] right-wing political...

    Floridians will vote next year on whether to raise the state’s minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2026, an amendment initiative led by Orlando attorney John Morgan that’s already drawing opposition from Republican leaders and the business community. The initiative that will be called Amendment 2 made the November ballot after its wording was approved by the Florida Supreme Court in a decision released Thursday. Court review was the last obstacle to getting the measure on the ballot after Morgan’s Florida For A Fair Wage collected more than 770,000 of the required 766,200 signatures. The amendment would raise the...

    A federal judge delivered a speech Thursday lambasting President Trump’s administration, saying the president has selected judicial nominees that do not represent the diversity of America. During a speech at the University of Virginia School of Law, Judge Carlton W. Reeves, an Obama appointee, compared the president to the Ku Klux Klan and called his administration a “great assault on our judiciary.” “When politicians attack courts as ‘dangerous,’ ‘political,’ and guilty of ‘egregious overreach,’ you can hear the Klan’s lawyers, assailing officers of the court across the South,” the judge said. He noted 90 percent of the president’s picks for...

    Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday called Fox News “AOC TMZ” and blamed the conservative network for her poor favorability rating in a new poll. A Gallup poll released Friday showed that more Americans, 41 percent, viewed her unfavorably than favorably (31 percent). Her unfavorably rating climbed up from 26 percent in September, while her favorability rating also increased from 24 percent, meaning her net favorability dropped from -2 percentage points to -10 percentage points. Ocasio-Cortez responded by tweeting that she has net favorable ratings from women, people ages 18 to 34 and people who are not white. “If you...
