MILLIONS FLOCK TO PARLER FROM TWITTER AND FACEBOOK AFTER ELECTION BIAS

by the DC Patriot Twitter and Facebook have been cracking down on political misinformation by adding labels to posts including those shared by President Donald Trump. Now more conservatives are flocking to an alternative social network called Parler. Twitter and Facebook, which have repeatedly denied allegations of conservative bias, have suspended many well-known members from their platforms for violating their rules.  Examples are journalist and Republican House of Representatives nominee in Florida, Laura Loomer, President Donald Trump, political consultant Roger Stone, Sheriff David Clarke, actor James Woods, along with 10,000 others. Over the weekend, high-profile conservatives urged others to join Parler after major news outlets projected Biden’s victory. “Twitter has ...

Talk of “Unity” Is Both Hypocritical and Delusional

by Gary Galles In Joe Biden’s address after being declared president-elect by news organizations, he promised to be a leader who “seeks not to divide but to unify.” Making that assertion after the campaigns we have seen, not to mention the light-years-apart treatment of the candidates, while Donald Trump is still adamantly disputing the election because of alleged Democrat malfeasance is, at a minimum, ironic. And it would be the height of hypocrisy if only a few of Trump’s claims of cheating are true. But we need to go further and recognize that even the possibility of Joe Biden uniting us is a delusion. Agreement on the specific ends we want to achieve is unattainable because our desires are mutually inconsistent. Our agreement is very limited on even very broadly defined issues, ...

TYRANT! Michigan Governor Whitmer Tells Residents to CANCEL Thanksgiving and Christmas Get Togethers

by the DC Patriot Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings because of you know more Covid insanity… BREAKING: Michigan Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer is telling Michiganders to NOT ATTEND Thanksgiving and Christmas Gatherings… Michigan, what says you?— Matt Couch (@RealMattCouch) November 12, 2020 “Thanksgiving is going to look different this year,” Whitmer said. “It just has to. Medical experts across the country strongly recommend that we do not host Thanksgiving with people from outside of our own households. “I know this will be hard, but we cannot afford for people to head to a family member, friend or loved one’s house for Thanksgiving, contract the virus and bring it back to the communities and their homes. “The more people we have in our homes — talking, ...

President Trump Can Win Reelection Even If Unsuccessful in Election Recounts and Court Challenges

by Adam Dick President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign is pursuing recounts and court challenges in an effort to establish that Trump won the popular vote in several states that media organizations have said were won by Democratic Party presidential nominee Joe Biden. Even if the campaign’s efforts are unsuccessful, state legislators in some or all of these states, should they conclude the election in their states was won by Trump, could exercise their power under the United States Constitution to award Trump’s electors in those states entrance to the Electoral College that will vote in December on who becomes president and vice president. Thus, there is an avenue for Trump to win the presidential election even if his recount and court efforts are not successful. Most American...

Lockdowns Haven’t Brought down Covid Mortality. But They Have Killed Millions of Jobs.

by Mitch Nemeth During the early onset of covid-19 in the spring, government officials across the political spectrum widely agreed that government intervention and forced closure of many businesses was necessary to protect public health. This approach has clearly failed in the United States as it led to widespread economic devastation, including millions of jobs lost, bankruptcies, and extremely severe losses in profitability. Nor have states with strict lockdowns succeeded in bringing about fewer covid deaths per million than states that were less strict. Consequently, a few months into the pandemic, some governors weighed the competing economic costs with covid-19 containment and slowly reopened their economies. Of course, these governors did not mandate businesses reopen; ho...
