    The big business lobby is cheerleading President-elect Joe Biden’s massive amnesty plan for the 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States, calling the initiative one of their many “priorities.” Biden floated the amnesty plan with a number of open borders and business lobbying groups during a meeting this week. Some executives with the groups are calling the amnesty “the most aggressive” plan they have seen while working on Capitol Hill, suggesting it includes not only legislation, but executive orders to legalize most of the illegal alien population. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which represents corporate interests,...

    Republican strategist Karl Rove said on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that President Donald Trump will be convinced in the Senate with Republicans voting for impeachment if his defense is there was widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election. Anchor Chris Wallace asked, “Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell says that he is keeping an open mind about the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump, a big difference, sharp difference, from his clear opposition from the very start of the first impeachment trial just a year ago. What do you think, Karl, are the chances that 17 Senate...

    Parler's website suddenly reappeared online Sunday afternoon with a message from its CEO, John Matze: 'Hello world, is this thing on?' The message, dated January 16, implies that the social network popular with members of the far right has found a new online hosting platform, after Parler was booted from Amazon Web Services on January 10 in the wake of the Capitol siege. Parler now appears to be hosted by Epik, according to a WHOIS search. Epik is a hosting platform that supports Gab, 8chan and other services often used by members of the far-right. Prior to hosting Parler, Epik...

    Twitter announced the 12-hour suspension, saying it determined Green’s post “violated the Twitter rules, so we’ve temporarily suspended some of your account features.” The social media giant tagged one of Greene’s tweets about the Jan. 5 election. “The 1/5 disaster in Georgia lays solely in the hands of state leadership who failed voters in our state. @GaSecofState and@GabrielSterling were begged by Republicans to fix our elections. They did nothing. They are to blame, not me, not @realDonaldTrump, not @CollinsforGA,” she wrote on Twitter, referencing election officials in the Peach State. It included clips of former Attorney General Bill Barr and...

    Federal agents arrested a self-admitted anarchist and “hardcore leftist” on Friday on suspicion of plotting to violently disrupt planned election-related protests at the Florida state Capitol. Prosecutors said they “averted a crisis” at the Capitol by arresting 33-year-old Daniel Baker, taking him into custody on a charge involving making a threat to kidnap or injure, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Florida announced in a news release. “Baker issued a call to arms for like-minded individuals to violently confront protestors gathered at the Florida Capitol this Sunday,” prosecutors said. “He specifically called for others to join him...

    Hot Air.com ^ | January 17, 2021 | JAZZ SHAW
    Assuming nobody shows up to burn down Capitol Hill on Wednesday (still a big assumption, I know), Joe Biden’s team, leading with Ron Klain, is trumpeting a “blitz” of executive orders that the incoming president plans to sign on the day of his inauguration, with many more to come over the course of the first ten days. Many of these plans went almost unmentioned during Joe’s basement campaign, while others received a bit of air time, but are going much further than what he mentioned on the campaign trail. Should we be taking the time to point out that Biden...

    Fifty-five people in the United States have died after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, according to reports submitted to a federal system. Deaths have occurred among people receiving both the Moderna and the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines, according to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), a federal database. The system is passive, meaning reports aren’t automatically collected and must be filed. VAERS reports can be filed by anyone, including health care providers, patients, or family members. VAERS reports “often lack details and sometimes can have information that contains errors,” according to the reporting system’s website. Still, reports on VAERS represent “only a...

    Townhall.com ^ | January 17, 2021 | Craig Caruana
    Anger against big tech reached a tipping point during the 2020 Election, as conservative ideas were censored and stories critical of Democrats suppressed. With the ongoing purge of social media accounts, corporations are enforcing a free speech restriction that terrifies not only conservatives but free speech advocates across the political spectrum. The question now is how do we translate anger into tangible actions that will bring about change? To fight big tech over the long-term, we need a comprehensive strategy that marshals the resources of investors and entrepreneurs, donors, elected officials and policy experts. Business leaders can foster an entrepreneurial...

    Former ambassador to Germany Ric Grenell on Sunday claimed Susan Rice, tapped by the President-elect Joe Biden to run the Foreign Policy Council, will really act as the “shadow president” in the administration. In an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Grenell said “you need to watch Susan Rice very closely.” “She will be the shadow president,” he claimed. “We have a president-elect in Joe Biden who clearly is not the Joe Biden of 10 years ago. He's not even the Joe Biden of 5 years ago when it comes to policy issues. “We saw him raise his hand...

    GUATEMALA CITY—Guatemalan soldiers blocked part of a caravan of as many as 9,000 Honduran migrants on Jan. 16, at a point not far from where they entered the country seeking to reach the U.S. border. The soldiers, many wearing helmets and wielding shields and sticks, formed ranks across a highway in Chiquimula, near the Honduras border, to block the procession of migrants. Guatemala’s immigration agency distributed a video showing a couple of hundred men scuffling with soldiers, pushing and running through their lines, even as troops held hundreds more back. Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei issued a statement calling on Honduran...

    Before her exit from the Trump administration, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos had one last warning for members of Congress. In a farewell letter addressed to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Jan. 4, DeVos warned of the dangers of forgiving student loan debt. The Democratic Party has made student loan forgiveness one of its top policy priorities. With control of both houses of Congress and the presidency, the party would have the power to pursue such a policy in the next few years. “Importantly, I hope you also reject misguided calls to make college ‘free’ and require the two-thirds...

    On this week’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz decried an ongoing impeachment effort against President Donald Trump for allegedly inciting a riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. According to Dershowitz, impeaching someone who is not a sitting president was unconstitutional, and he laid out the precedent that backed up his reasoning. “It will be unconstitutional, but that probably won’t bother the senators. The Constitution is very clear. The subject, the object, the purpose of impeachment is to remove a sitting precedent. And there are two precedents. One is...

    Rep. Jamie Raskin on Sunday described balancing the trauma of his son’s recent death by suicide with the horror of the US Capitol riot and his duty as lead impeachment manager against President Trump. “I’m not going to lose my son at the end of 2020, and lose my country and my republic in 2021,” the Maryland Democrat vowed in an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “It’s not going to happen.” Raskin’s 25-year-old son, Thomas, took his own life on Dec. 31, following a long battle with depression. “He had overwhelming love for humanity and for our country...

    District of Columbia Attorney General Karl Racine said Sunday on MSNBC’s “Velshi” that he was looking at charging President Donald Trump and others who spoke at the rally proceeding the deadly riots at Capital Hill on “inciting violence” charges. Anchor Ali Velshi said, “You are considering bringing charges, that’s what the reporting is, against people for inciting this riot.” Racine replied, “The reporting is accurate. The office of attorney general has jurisdiction over a number of potential offenses, including weapons, ammunition, curfew violations, and the one that’s gotten the most attention, of course, is the inciting violence charge. We’ve brought...
