    As we learn more and more from the “Twitter Files,” it is becoming all too obvious that Federal agencies such as the FBI viewed the First Amendment of our Constitution as an annoyance and an impediment. In Friday’s release from the pre-Musk era, journalist Matt Taibbi makes an astute observation: Twitter was essentially an FBI subsidiary. The FBI, we now know, was obsessed with Twitter. We learned that agents sent Twitter Trust and Safety chief Yoel Roth some 150 emails between 2020 and 2022. Those emails regularly featured demands from US government officials for the “private” social media company to...

    The Hill ^ | 12/20/22 8:01 AM ET | BY JARED GANS
    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is endorsing the Electoral Count Reform Act as necessary to save the Electoral College, saying on Monday the system needs to be reformed so it will not be abolished. Paul said in an op-ed in The Louisville Courier-Journal that recent elections have shown flaws in Congress’s role with the Electoral College, leaving the vice president’s role in counting the votes ambiguous and allowing one member of the House and Senate to object to counting a state’s votes. He said both political parties have exploited these issues to cause “political theater.” “In 2021, the theater act went...
  • ‘Republicans Are Emasculated’: Rand Paul Furious Over Bipartisan Spending Deal, Says GOP Isn’t Fiscally Conservative

    mediaite ^ | Dec 14 | By Michael Luciano
    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) declared that Republicans have “emasculated” themselves by agreeing to a major spending deal and complained Republicans aren’t fiscally conservative. On Tuesday night, leading congressional Democrats and Republicans agreed on a framework to fund the government through most of 2023. The House is expected to vote on the measure Wednesday night. Meanwhile, the Senate could take up the measure as early as Thursday. Some Republicans have called on their leadership to wait until the next Congress convenes, when the GOP will control the House. Paul stated he is staunchly opposed to whatever deal emerges. Instead of one...

  • Ron Paul on the airline plot : “They’re terrorists because we’re occupiers!”

    I’ve already written about how his isolationist garbage leads inexorably to nonsense like this, so let me just add two points. First, and most obviously, there is no U.S. occupation of Yemen or Nigeria. The only way the airline plot is a reaction to U.S. “occupation” is if you accept the jihadist premise that there are no Arab/Muslim nation-states but rather only one Islamic caliphate waiting to be born. Only in that way does the U.S. occupation of Iraq warrant a reprisal from, say, a Pakistani or Yemeni. And yet, needless to say, if Britain was attacked tomorrow and Obama...

    Rand Paul said that even though Dr. Anthony Fauci is retiring, it does not disqualify him from being investigated or called to testify before Congress in any probe related to COVID-19. The Kentucky GOP senator brought up the prospect after new Twitter CEO Elon Musk called for the prosecution of Fauci in a tweet that poked fun at people declaring their pronouns. 'My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci,' Musk wrote early Sunday morning. Fauci announced in August that he would be stepping down from his post in December 'to pursue the next chapter' of his career. He served as the Centers for...

    NEW YORK (AP) — The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has charged the former CEO of failed cryptocurrency firm FTX with orchestrating a scheme to defraud investors. An SEC complaint filed Tuesday alleges that Sam Bankman-Fried raised more than $1.8 billion from equity investors since May 2019 by promoting FTX as a safe, responsible platform for trading crypto assets. The civil complaint says Bankman-Fried diverted customer funds to Alameda Research LLC, his privately-held crypto fund, without telling them. The complaint also says Bankman-Fried commingled FTX customers’ funds at Alameda to make undisclosed venture investments, lavish real estate purchases, and large...

    Longtime Fox News host Mark Levin has been facing heat for supporting Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) in his Speaker run after criticizing the California rep for years. Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Az.) called Levin “the biggest fraud in politics right now.” “For years, this guy castigated McCarthy publicly (with no shame). Now, he is all in for him and wants his audience to turn a blind eye,” Biggs posted to Twitter. Biggs tweeted a graphic that described Levin as a “Total Fraud & Flip Flopper” and listed out tweets Levin made over the past 8 years criticizing and attacking McCarthy’s role...

    Elon Musk was drowned out by boos when he joined Dave Chappelle onstage at a gig in San Francisco — and laughed off the snub Monday as the cries of “unhinged leftists” he’d recently “offended.” Musk, 51, made the surprise appearance at the Chase Center late Sunday after Chappelle asked his audience to “make some noise for the richest man in the world” — the title the Tesla boss and Twitter owner has just regained. Wearing an “I love Twitter” T-shirt, Musk then held his hands up in apparent confusion as Chappelle noted the loud “cheers and boos.” As the...

Call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and demand your Senators support it today!Right now there is a huge opportunity for the Congress to force President Joe Biden to force the Saudis and United Arab Emirates to end their war against Yemen. This intervention has been totally unauthorized by Congress and does not serve American interests. The only enemies of the American people in Yemen are the members of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). They are real bin Ladenite, anti-American terrorists. They...

    Since taking over Twitter, Elon Musk has shown a willingness, and sometimes a relish, to pick public fights with an array of targets, including advertisers, tech giants, employees and more. But over the weekend, Musk publicly attacked two figures, Dr. Anthony Fauci and Yoel Roth, Twitter’s former head of trust and safety, in ways that may resonate with far-right audiences and gin up user engagement — but are likely to deter wary advertisers from flocking back to the social network anytime soon. “My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci,” Musk tweeted on Sunday, scoring points with both critics of the use of nonbinary...

    "For the past decade, [Fauci's] been an advocate of gain-of-function research. This debate started around 2010. He came down as a firm advocate for publishing this dangerous research and continuing to fund it," Paul told co-anchor Sandra Smith. "And this was a really, really bad mistake in judgment, and it may well have led to the deaths of 6 million people." According to government documents obtained by The Intercept, the NIH during Fauci's tenure at the NIAID funded gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

    A new Yahoo News/YouGov poll finds that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis now leads former President Donald Trump by 5 percentage points in the race for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination. Trump previously led DeSantis by double-digit margins among registered voters who describe themselves as Republicans or Republican-leaning independents. Meanwhile, DeSantis is ahead by even more — a whopping 11 points — among Americans who say they voted in a 2016 Republican primary or caucus in their state. The poll of 1,635 U.S. adults, which was conducted from Dec. 1 to 5, is one of the first to confirm how far...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has overtaken former President Trump in a hypothetical 2024 match-up for the GOP presidential nomination, according to a new Yahoo News-YouGov poll. The nationwide poll, released Thursday, shows DeSantis with a 5-point lead over Trump, with 47 percent of registered voters backing the governor compared to 42 percent for the former president. The latest results, taken in the first few days of December, are a stark turn from a mid-October poll that found Trump ahead by 9 percentage points, with 45 percent to DeSantis’s 36 percent. Trump announced his third run for the White House...
