Devin Nunes Isn’t Done Saving Our Republic

In a stunning move that has stupefied and unsettled the swamp and its Big Tech and corporate media cohorts, U.S. Representative Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) is retiring from Congress to become chief executive officer of Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG). Nunes will commence his new role effective January 1. 

Despite his personally momentous decision, as the current ranking member (and former chairman) of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Nunes knows he will be doing anything but retiring. While his duties have changed, his core mission remains: protecting and promoting Americans’ liberty in our free republic.

A recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his work in exposing the corruption and weaponization of the federal government to pimp the Russiagate lie, Nunes stated this in no uncertain terms: “The time has come to reopen the Internet and allow for the free flow of ideas and expression without censorship. The United States of America made the dream of the Internet a reality and it will be an American company that restores the dream."

 

For his part, former President Trump, who praised Nunes as “a fighter and a leader,” reaffirmed the new company’s mission: “Devin understands that we must stop the liberal media and Big Tech from destroying the freedoms that make America great. America is ready for TRUTH Social and the end to censorship and political discrimination.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 
 

Nunes has long fought against Big Tech and the corporate media’s disinformation and censorship. It was a battle that even pre-dated his work in revealing the truth about the Russiagate scam in the face of a deceitful media determined to propagate the lie to abet their governmental cronies in subverting the duly elected President Trump.

While Nunes has long warned about the deliberate, leftist disinformation spewed by the corporate media, early on he sounded the alarm about the concentrated, increasingly unaccountable power of Big Tech to stifle and silence information and dissent—done in an abjectly censorious vitiation of every free speech reason it once proffered for special treatment under federal law. An early, ardent proponent of Parler as an alternative to the increasingly censorious Twitter, Nunes was outraged by Big Tech’s monopolistic decimation of that site. 

Consequently, it likely became clear to Nunes that his choice was to either try and tackle Big Tech and the corporate media through the legislative process or to do it through direct competition in the marketplace.

As a supporter and practitioner of free markets and entrepreneurship, the dairy farmer Nunes chose the latter, leaving life as a servant in the public sector to ascend back to the status of a citizen in the private sector—one ready, willing, and able to defend and advance Americans’ liberty in the face of the increasingly fascistic “woke” cabal infesting and corrupting the swamp, Big Tech, the Pravda media, and the corporate world.

       "So Nunes had a choice: Stay in Congress and chair the House’s most powerful committee as a Republican, limited by the Democrat-controlled executive branch, or surrender the cozy conclave and create an enterprise to counter the slant and censorship that over the last five years has grown exponentially."

Right Responds To Cancel Culture By Building Its Own Infrastructure, Left Goes Nuts

Last week the corrupt media’s penchant for spinning all things conservative caused a near-fatal case of whiplash. ~~~~~~~~~~ The refusal by conservatives to continue “to consume” the product of the increasingly “deranged and unaccountable lefty media” is not about building an echo chamber, however: It is about competition and choice. And branding these new business ventures an “ecosystem” and “echo chamber” merely reveal the left’s panic over their inability to control the narrative.

“How Devin Nunes’s new media job for Trump explains the GOP grift machine,” the Washington Post headlined an op-ed by columnist Paul Waldman. Waldman supported his thesis by pointing out that “with Republicans poised to win the House, Nunes was in line to become the chair of the Ways and Means Committee, which writes the nation’s tax laws.”~~~~~~~~~~~~

From his perch on the intelligence Committee, he ran interference for Mr. Trump against accusations that his 2016 campaign had collaborated with Russian intelligence. Mr. Nunes also organized a united Republican front opposing the first impeachment of the president for withholding military assistance to Ukraine to pressure its government to dig up dirt on Mr. Biden. ~~~~~~~~

Having lived through the heyday of the Russia-collusion hoax, as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Nunes fought to expose the truth of the Crossfire Hurricane disaster to the American public. Yet the corporate press fed the lies of the Democrat ranking member to the country instead. The California Republican saw a repeat of this ploy with the Ukraine impeachment proceedings. Hatred for Trump proved the breaking straw to the already biased establishment press.

Then came the censorship, limiting conservatives’ ability to counter the corrupt media. Again, Nunes experienced that firsthand, being shadow-banned by Twitter in 2018. And if any more proof were needed of corporate cronies’ ability to control information, the burying of the Hunter Biden laptop story that implicated then-candidate Joe Biden in a pay-to-play scandal right before the 2020 election handed Nunes—and our country—the final piece of evidence.

Kewl... I wish them all the best of luck.

Finally, somebody to take on big tech... and backed by Trump to boot!

OK... Twitter and Facebook are still around, but their numbers have recently started to wain too and in the not too distant future, they may have their Section 230 privileges revoked to boot. That's why both of their heads have stepped down because they see what's coming in the future for them. 

FWIW

      "If a company is carrying out a government’s demands that would otherwise violate a citizen’s Constitutional rights, then it is essentially acting as an agent or instrument of the government itself. This fascism should not be allowed to stand in a U.S. court of law."

Twitter Gets Hit with the Censorship Lawsuit America Has Been Waiting For

Berenson is best known for his heterodox views on the Covid-19 pandemic, which has assailed the mainstream media for putting out demonstrable misinformation and untruths about the virus and the vaccines. Now, he is suing Twitter for selectively banning him from the platform and for tarnishing his reputation in the process.

“Mr. Berenson also has a uniquely viable claim that Twitter acted on behalf of the federal government in censoring and barring him from to its platform,” the lawsuit saidThe background to Twitter’s censorship of Berenson harmed the public interest and the critic was proven right on several occasions.

“During 2020 and 2021, Mr. Berenson became a prominent critic of the governmental and public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic,” the lawsuit states. “Mr. Berenson made many statements on Twitter which, although controversial at the time, have since become conventional wisdom, most notably about the profound harm to children caused by remote learning and unnecessary school closures.”

While Twitter initially reassured Berenson he would be given free reign to pursue his journalism, the Big Tech platform began its suppression of his tweets in reaction to disparaging statements from Dr. Anthony Fauci and the Biden administration. ~~~~~~~~~~

“On August 28, in the wake of even more calls for censorship from government officials, Twitter permanently suspended Mr. Berenson from its platform, citing ‘repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation rules’,” the lawsuit notes. “Mr. Berenson did not violate those rules. Twitter, on the other hand, broke its promises to Mr. Berenson as well as its policies, and violated his rights as it served the federal government’s censorship demands.”

This is where the rubber-meets-the-road when it comes to Big Tech censorship (as well as vaccine mandates): If a company is carrying out a government’s demands that would otherwise violate a citizen’s Constitutional rights, then it is essentially acting as an agent or instrument of the government itself. This fascism should not be allowed to stand in a U.S. court of law.

       "the United Kingdom’s record-breaking surge across a mostly vaccinated population makes one thing clear: mass vaccination will not stop the pandemic. Similar surges fueled by breakthrough cases around the world tell the same story."

https://thefederalist.com/2021/12/14/forcing-people-into-covid-vaccines-ignores-important-scientific-information/

Forcing People Into COVID Vaccines Ignores Important Scientific Information ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Universal Vaccination Based on False Premise - In the case of COVID-19 vaccines, the censorship aims to stamp out any questions about a universal vaccination program that, it is now clear, was based on the false premise that low-risk individuals must get vaccinated to halt the spread of COVID-19 and end the pandemic. Almost a year into the global vaccination campaign – and starting long before omicron arrived – all the data stand in stark opposition to this belief. ~~~~~~~~~~~~

Most damning, reports regularly published by the British government show that for every age group from 30 years and up, vaccinated individuals are now actually more likely to test positive for COVID-19. In the case of the 40-59-year-old age group, in the latest report the rate is twice as high among the vaccinated. Whether this is due to the physiological effects of the vaccines or to social factors – for example freer socializing by the vaccinated – the United Kingdom’s record-breaking surge across a mostly vaccinated population makes one thing clear: mass vaccination will not stop the pandemic. Similar surges fueled by breakthrough cases around the world tell the same story. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That’s because, whatever vaccine makers and government agencies may say, it is also clear that the COVID-19 vaccines are not without risks, which for some individuals extend to permanent life-altering injuries and even death. For individuals at high risk of severe COVID-19 disease, the risks posed by vaccines may make sense, but for low-risk individuals, such as the vast majority of children, adolescents, and young adults of child-bearing age, the calculation is very different. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Possible Underreporting of Adverse Events and Deaths - Moreover, counter to those who dismiss VAERS data as inflated, historical data suggests that vaccine-related adverse events and deaths are in fact underreported by a large margin. The Lazarus Report, funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, found that “fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported,” and a 2015 study published in the scientific journal Vaccine acknowledged “known underreporting of adverse events to VAERS.”

A Centers for Disease Control study analyzing VAERS reports from 1991 to 2001 warned that adverse events may be underreported. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has admitted that it was incapable of tracking adverse events regarding the COVID-19 vaccines. In a letter to Pfizer dated August 23, 2021, the FDA stated, “the pharmacovigilance system that FDA is required to maintain … is not sufficient to assess these serious risks.”

Why would doctors fail to report adverse events, including deaths, among recently vaccinated patients? Consider the fierce warnings issued by national medical organizations and state medical boards, threatening to strip any doctor who questions the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines of his license. If questioning vaccine safety can destroy your career and livelihood, would you create a permanent public record attaching your name and license number to a report doing precisely that? Fatally Flawed Safety Reviews - Again, it is not spreading disinformation to take note of these figures, to ask what they mean, and to raise the possibility that the true extent of these events is underrepresented. But doesn’t all this imply that the safety review process established by the FDA and pharmaceutical companies for the COVID-19 vaccines may be fatally flawed?

In a word, yes. From the revelations of a whistleblower about the “poor practices” and “data integrity” issues at a Pfizer subcontractor involved in the safety trials, to Pfizer’s minimizing of catastrophic injuries as minor discomfort in the trial for the 12-15-year-old age group, to potential conflicts of interest on the FDA’s vaccine advisory committees, there are plenty of reasons to be gravely concerned about the integrity of the safety review process for the COVID-19 vaccines. Just as pressing are these questions: how did the process become so badly broken, and why have all the traditional independent stewards of the public interest, including the news media and academia, remained silent in the face of so many glaring failures? More than that, why have they been complicit in the censorship silencing anyone who raises these issues?

         "Public health is the excuse used to silence doctors, scientists, and parents challenging the administration’s COVID orthodoxy. “Graphic content” is used as the excuse to silence artists highlighting the Taliban’s brutal rule in the wake of the administration’s retreat from Afghanistan."

A Year Ago, Big Tech Declared Open War On America. Here's What's Next

President Donald Trump was permanently suspended from Twitter one year ago. In the ensuing turmoil, it’s easy to forget why. Ask near-any self-declared politico around Washington, D.C., and you’ll hear an unsure and uncertain allusion to the Capitol riot. It’s important to understand their reasons, however, to understand what’s in store for the rest of our country. Fortunately, we don’t need to wonder; Twitter was open and upfront on the issue — at least as much as they ever are: The sitting president of the United States, they declared, had sent two terrible and unpardonable tweets.

First, he’d written that the political movement he’d started would continue into the future, and wouldn’t be disrespected: The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!

Second, he said he wouldn’t be attending President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration in two weeks’ time. “To all of those who have asked,” he wrote, “I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th.” These violated their “Glorification of Violence” policy, Twitter claimed, and so the president was “immediately permanently suspended from the service.”

It’s a private company, Twitter’s defenders insist, so it doesn’t need remotely passable reasons to ban the president from messaging his 90 million followers. “If you don’t like it, build your own,” sort of thing. ~~~~~~~~~~

The Capitol riot was used as an excuse for deplatforming an American president and smashing a private company, but it wasn’t the reason: The illiberal left has long used any pretense at all to justify its centralization of control and crushing of dissent; and Big Tech, once a free-wheeling vehicle for decentralized innovation, is now no more than an arm of the illiberal left. ~~~~~~~~~~~~

Public health is the excuse used to silence doctors, scientists, and parents challenging the administration’s COVID orthodoxy. “Graphic content” is used as the excuse to silence artists highlighting the Taliban’s brutal rule in the wake of the administration’s retreat from Afghanistan.

The Age of Intolerance: Cancel Culture’s War on Free Speech

Cancel culture—political correctness amped up on steroids...Everything is now fair game for censorship if it can be construed as hateful, hurtful, bigoted or offensive provided that it runs counter to the established viewpoint. In this way, the most controversial issues of our day—race, religion, sex, sexuality, politics, science, health, government corruption, police brutality, etc.—have become battlegrounds for those who claim to believe in freedom of speech but only when it favors the views and positions they support.

Free speech for me but not for thee” is how my good friend and free speech purist Nat Hentoff used to sum up this double standard. This tendency to censor, silence, delete, label as “hateful,” and demonize viewpoints that run counter to the cultural elite is being embraced with a near-fanatical zealotry by a cult-like establishment that values conformity and group-think over individuality.

For instance, are you skeptical about the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines? Do you have concerns about the outcome of the 2020 presidential election? Do you subscribe to religious beliefs that shape your views on sexuality, marriage and gender? Do you, deliberately or inadvertently, engage in misgendering (identifying a person’s gender incorrectly) or deadnaming (using the wrong pronouns or birth name for a transgender person)?

Say yes to any of those questions and then dare to voice those views in anything louder than a whisper and you might find yourself suspended on Twitter, shut out of Facebook, and banned across various social media platforms. ~~~~~~~~~~ In the past few years, for example, prominent social media voices have been censored, silenced and made to disappear from Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram for voicing ideas that were deemed politically incorrect, hateful, dangerous or conspiratorial.

Most recently, Twitter suspended conservative podcaster Matt Walsh for violating its hate speech policy by sharing his views about transgendered individuals. “The greatest female Jeopardy champion of all time is a man. The top female college swimmer is a man. The first female four star admiral in the Public Health Service is a man. Men have dominated female high school track and the female MMA circuit. The patriarchy wins in the end,” Walsh tweeted on Dec. 30, 2021.

         It is as we have been saying, there are very few of them, although many in important places of power and influence. Therefore, if they intend to continue with there evil designs, they have to make it happen NOW!!! That is why we have to put up our defenses and bring them (figuratively) down. It is vital to do so.

Gallup: Liberals make up astonishingly small chunk of Americans

Liberals may be filling up the offices at the White House right now. And the seats in Congress. And in newly filled judicial posts. And in education and the military. And don't forget their dominance in social media. 

But liberalism actually is an ideology adopted by only a quarter of the nation, even though it has grown somewhat over the last 30 years. But that is so slow that even continuing that out into the future, it would take another 30 or 40 years for liberalism to be adopted by the number of Americans that now support being a moderate, or being a conservative. ~~~~~~~~~~

Gallup said it measures Americans' political ideology by asking survey respondents whether their political views are "very conservative," "conservative," "moderate," "liberal" or "very liberal."

"Because relatively few people categorize themselves as "very" conservative or liberal, Gallup reports the results in three summary groups -- conservatives, moderates and liberals," Gallup explained.

The liberal ideology has grown among Democrats in recent decades, while those Democrats saying they are conservative or moderate has edged down.

The report said Republicans' right-leaning stance held firm last year, with 74% identifying as conservative, 22% as moderate and just 4% as liberal.

Among subgroups, men, older adults, white adults, those without a college degree and residents of the South and Midwest are more like to identify as conservative. Liberal views are more likely to be found among women, middle-aged adults, college graduates, Hispanic adults and those who live on the coasts.

Joe Biden's agenda that included fights over U.S. voting laws, government spending, abortion, COVID-19 policies and more was unable to shift any of the indicators, the polling said.
