The sad story of George Stinney, Jr.

Yes, it is a sad and unjust story, which you’ve probably never heard about.

According to the “All That’s Interesting” website, “The youngest person in the United States to ever be put to death in the electric chair was an African-American 14-year-old named George Stinney, Jr. He was executed in the Deep South in 1944, in the midst of the Jim Crow era.”

“George Stinney Jr. lived in the segregated mill town of Alcolu, South Carolina, where white people and black people were separated by railroad tracks. Stinney’s family lived in a humble company house — until they were forced to leave when the young boy was accused of killing two white girls.”

“It took a jury of white men 10 minutes to find Stinney guilty — and it would take 70 years before Stinney was exonerated.”

“In March 1944, Betty June Binnicker, 11, and Mary Emma Thames, 7, were riding their bicycles in Alcolu looking for flowers. When they saw Stinney and his younger sister Aime during their journey, they stopped and asked if they knew where to find maypops, the yellow edible fruit of passionflowers.”

“That was reportedly the last time the girls were seen alive.”

“Binnicker and Thames, who were white, never made it home that day. Their disappearance prompted hundreds of Alcolu residents, including Stinney’s father, to come together and search for the missing girls. It wasn’t until the next day when their dead bodies were discovered in a soggy ditch.”

“When Dr. Asbury Cecil Bozard examined their bodies, there was no clear sign of a struggle, but both girls had met violent deaths involving multiple head injuries.”

“Thames had a hole boring straight through her forehead into her skull, along with a two-inch-long cut above her right eyebrow. Meanwhile, Binnicker had suffered at least seven blows to the head. It was later noted that the back of her skull was ‘nothing but a mass of crushed bones.’”

“Bozard concluded that Binnicker and Thames had wounds that were likely caused by a ‘round instrument about the size of the head of a hammer.’”

“When Clarendon County law enforcement officers learned from a witness that Binnicker and Thames were seen talking to Stinney, they went to his home. There, George Stinney, Jr. was promptly handcuffed and interrogated for hours in a small room without his parents, an attorney, or any witnesses.”

“Police claimed that Stinney confessed to murdering Binnicker and Thames.”

“An officer named H.S. Newman wrote in a handwritten statement, ‘I arrested a boy by the name of George Stinney. He then made a confession and told me where to find a piece of iron about 15 inches long. He said he put it in a ditch about six feet from the bicycle.’”

“Newman refused to reveal where Stinney was detained, as rumors of lynching spread throughout the town. Not even his parents knew where he was as his trial quickly approached. At the time, 14 was considered the age of responsibility — and Stinney was believed to be responsible for murder.”

“About a month after the girls’ deaths, George Stinney, Jr.’s trial began at a Clarendon County Courthouse. Court-appointed attorney Charles Plowden did ‘little to nothing’ to defend his client.”

“During the two-hour trial, Plowden failed to call witnesses to the stand or present any evidence that would cast doubt on the prosecution’s case. The most significant piece of evidence presented against Stinney was his alleged confession, but there was no written record of the teen admitting to the murders.”

“By the time of his trial, Stinney hadn’t seen his parents in weeks, and they were too afraid of getting attacked by a white mob to come to the courthouse.”

“Following a deliberation that took less than 10 minutes, the all-white jury found Stinney guilty of murder, with no recommendation for mercy.”

“On April 24, 1944, the teen was sentenced to die by electrocution.”

“George Stinney, Jr.’s execution was not without protest. In South Carolina, organizers for both white and black ministerial unions petitioned Gov. Olin Johnston to grant Stinney clemency based on his young age.”

“Meanwhile, hundreds of letters and telegrams poured into the governor’s office, begging him to show mercy to Stinney. Stinney’s supporters appealed with everything from the basic idea of fairness to the concept of Christian justice. But in the end, none of it was enough to save Stinney.”

“On June 16, 1944, George Stinney, Jr. walked into the execution chamber at the South Carolina State Penitentiary in Columbia with a Bible tucked under his arm.”

“Weighing in at just 95 pounds, he was dressed in a loose-fitting striped jumpsuit. Strapped into an adult-size electric chair, he was so small that the state electrician struggled to adjust an electrode to his right leg. A mask that was too big for him was placed over his face.”

“An assistant captain asked Stinney if he had any last words. Stinney replied, ‘No sir.’ The prison doctor prodded, ‘You don’t want to say anything about what you did?’ Again, Stinney replied, ‘No sir.’”

“When officials turned on the switch, 2,400 volts surged through Stinney’s body, causing the mask to slip off. His eyes were wide and teary, and saliva was emanating from his mouth for all the witnesses in the room to see. After two more jolts of electricity, it was over.”

“Stinney was pronounced dead shortly thereafter. In a span of just 83 days, the boy had been charged with murder, tried, convicted, and executed by the state.”

“It was noted that a man named Wilford ‘Johnny’ Hunter, who claimed to be Stinney’s cellmate, said that Stinney denied murdering Binnicker and Thames.”

“He said, ‘Johnny, I didn’t, didn’t do it,’ Hunter said. He said, ‘Why would they kill me for something I didn’t do?’”

The bottom line, in my mind, is that whether 14-year-old George Stinney, Jr. was guilty or not, he was definitely treated very poorly and unjustly, and no 14-year-old should ever be given a death sentence.   

George Stinney, Jr.’s death definitely marked one of the darker days in the state of South Carolina’s history, and one of the darker days in the history of these United States as well.

You can say this happened 76 years ago, or you can say this happened only 76 years ago.  In either case, I think it’s fair to say that our country has come a long way since then, and that we will not see another case like George Stinney, Jr.’s again.

Does the FBI and the DOJ pursue anything anymore if it isn’t related to President Trump?

We had the whole “Spygate” operation of the Obama administration illegally spying on the Trump campaign and then the Trump presidency.

Then we had the whole Russian collusion hoax, which was launched by the DOJ and the FBI, and then perpetuated by the democrats and the fake news mainstream media for over two years!  

Then we had Jeffrey Epstein, who was either silenced or allowed to commit suicide, in order to protect his influential fellow pedophiles.  

Then we had the impeachment hoax of President Trump, who was accused of doing exactly what former vice president Joe Biden actually did (a quid pro quo arrangement with The Ukraine).

Then we had the Hunter Biden “funny money” cases with The Ukraine, China, and Russia, which were smothered by the DOJ, the FBI, and the media, including social media.      

And now we have election “irregularities” and questionable voting machine software manipulation, in which the usual partners in crime ar all choosing to look the other way.   

It is sooo painfully obvious now that the DOJ and the FBI are in the back pockets of the democrats.

It is sooo obvious that you can expect that no one will go to jail over any of this, and no one will even be charged with anything over any of this.

The fix is in, my friends.   

The foxes, or better said the rats, are in charge of the hen house.

In the case of the Epstein investigation, those in danger of being implicated as pedophiles, or somehow assisting in the allowance of this behavior, are all liberals, democrats, establishment RINOs, politicians, or royals, I might add, which include well-known heads of state and successful businessmen, as well as at least one high-powered lawyer, and science luminaries.  Some of them have already been accused of participation in Epstein’s alleged sex trafficking ring.

Les Wexner, the billionaire behind U.S. fashion retailer L Brands, which owns Victoria’s Secret.

French modeling agent Jean-Luc Brunel became a member of Epstein’s inner circle in the early 2000s. Brunel “fed” Epstein young girls from “poor backgrounds,” and “lured” them in with “a promise of making good money.” Instead, Brunel would “farm them out to his friends,” including Epstein, “for sexual purposes.”

Prince Andrew, the Duke of York.

Alan Dershowitz, a high-powered lawyer and Harvard Law professor who helped broker a deal with the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, Alexander Acosta. Before the FBI’s proposed indictment could be presented to a grand jury, Epstein signed a seriously lenient non-prosecution agreement, pleading guilty to a single count of solicitation of a minor in exchange for a cushy 13-month sentence.

Billionaire power couple Glenn Dubin and Eva Andersson-Dubin.

Former President Bill Clinton and Epstein did quite a bit of jet setting on the “Lolita Express,” the press nickname for Epstein’s private Boeing 727 jet.

Former democratic Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell.

Former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson.

Media mogul, billionaire, and former owner of the New York Daily News and the Atlantic, Mort Zuckerman.

Woody Allen.

Attorney General William Barr once also served as counsel at Kirkland and Ellis, the law firm that represented Epstein for his obscenely lenient 2008 plea deal.  This explains a lot.

Ken Starr.  The former independent counsel who investigated President Clinton, Starr served on Epstein’s all-star legal team in 2008, helping to strike a deal that landed Epstein in jail for only 13 months, with work release six days a week. In 2015, Starr dryly defended his work for Epstein: “I was happy to respond to the needs of a client of the firm.”

Stephen Hawking. In addition to his time on “pedophile island,” Hawking took a boat cruise and submarine tour funded by Epstein. According to the Telegraph, Epstein “paid for the submarine to be modified for Professor Hawking, who had never been underwater before.”

According to flight logs of Epstein’s plane, Harvard psychology professor Steven Pinker hitched a ride on the “Lolita Express” in 2002.

Other notable people with ties to Epstein are Harvey Weinstein, Alec Baldwin, and Ted Kennedy.

Guest lists for dinners at his Manhattan townhouse also give a picture of his influence: In 2010, a dinner for Prince Andrew included Katie Couric, George Stephanopoulos, Chelsea Handler, and Woody Allen.

Vicky Ward, the journalist who wrote the 2003 Vanity Fair profile of Epstein, told Slate that “You got the feeling that his friends weren’t real friends — he owned them — that he was the kind of man who collected information about people and then used it over them.” Ward has also offered a more scathing assessment, saying, “What is so amazing to me is how his entire social circle knew about this and just blithely overlooked it … all mentioned the girls, as an aside.”

Thanks to Adam K. Raymond and Matt Stieb from New York Magazine’s Intelligencer and Amelia McDonell-Parry for Rolling Stone Magazine for their reporting on Epstein’s relationships.

According to James Hill of Good Morning America , “Victims’ rights lawyers who have been battling the U.S. Department of Justice for a dozen years over the controversial ‘sweetheart deal’ reached by federal prosecutors in Florida with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein are blasting the department’s long-awaited review of the deal as ‘offensive’ and a ‘whitewash.’”

Like I said, could we reasonably expect anything else from the Department of in-Justice?

‘“I think, frankly, what we got was an effort to paper over what happened,’ said Paul Cassell, a former federal judge who now represents Epstein accusers. ‘I think they’re trying to put the most favorable light on what’s clearly misconduct on the part of their attorneys.’”

“A 350-page report from the DOJ’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), which was made public Thursday, determined none of the five federal prosecutors who were deeply involved in the Epstein investigation committed professional misconduct or violated any clear and unambiguous rules when they reached the deal without informing or consulting with victims.”

Of course not.

“Instead, the OPR report faulted former Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, then the U.S. Attorney in Miami, for exhibiting ‘poor judgment’ in deciding to resolve the Epstein case through a non-prosecution agreement and in failing to make certain the alleged victims were notified in advance of Epstein’s guilty plea in state court that ended the federal investigation.”

‘“They just say he used poor judgment, and that’s their way of basically letting everyone off the hook while offering some sort of an olive branch to the victims that we acknowledge weren’t treated perfectly,’ said Brad Edwards, who sued the DOJ in 2008 on behalf of Epstein accusers, seeking to invalidate the once-secret deal. ‘But nobody really did anything wrong. It’s really offensive. It’s hurtful.’”

“Jena-Lisa Jones, who has alleged Epstein sexually abused her when she was just 14, called the Justice Department’s conclusions ‘like another slap in the face’ to victims.”

Better a “slap in the face” to you, Ms. Jones, than any harm come to any of their rich and powerful pedophile friends.

‘“Poor judgment is cheating on a spelling test or speeding five miles over the speed limit. That would be poor judgment to me,’ Jones said after attending a four-hour government briefing on the report’s findings at the FBI office in Miami. ‘I honestly don’t think that anybody will take responsibility in any sense, in any shape or form in the way that they actually should as adults.’”

The funny thing is that she thought anyone would!

“The OPR report, which took 22 months to complete, is not likely to be the last word on the Florida prosecutors’ treatment of Epstein, who was arrested last year by federal authorities in New York and then died while in custody in a Manhattan detention center.”

22 months to complete the report!

This is so typical of their modus operandi (MO), regarding the DOJ and the FBI.  Delay, delay, delay.  Excuse, excuse, excuse.  Then, Ignore, ignore, ignore.     

“Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., who requested the department review after the Miami Herald’s in-depth reports on the Epstein case were published in late 2018, harshly criticized OPR’s conclusions and vowed to keep investigating what he labeled a ‘disgusting failure.’”

‘“Letting a well-connected billionaire get away with child rape and international sex trafficking isn’t “poor judgment” — it is a disgusting failure. Americans ought to be enraged,’ said the senator, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Oversight Subcommittee. ‘Jeffrey Epstein should be rotting behind bars today, but the Justice Department failed Epstein’s victims at every turn.’”

Not to mention a slew of his well connected cohorts!

‘“OPR might have finished its report, but we have an obligation to make sure this never happens again,’ Sasse said in a statement.”

Whatever you say, Senator Sass.

“Authorities in New York, meanwhile, have vowed to continue investigating anyone who may have conspired with Epstein or assisted him in the commission of his alleged crimes. Earlier this year, Manhattan prosecutors charged Epstein’s former girlfriend and close associate, Ghislaine Maxwell, with helping to facilitate and, in some cases, participating in Epstein’s crimes against three minor girls in the mid-1990s. Maxwell pleaded not guilty and has long denied any knowledge of Epstein’s alleged sex-trafficking. Her trial is scheduled for next summer.”

Oh goody!  More investigations that will end up being big wastes of time. 

“And next month, lawyers Edwards and Cassell will argue before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta that the Epstein deal, which also conferred federal immunity to any potential co-conspirators, should be rescinded because it was reached in violation of the federal Crime Victims’ Rights Act.”

Ah, yes…, that all important “federal immunity!”

You can ask Hillary’s friends about that as well.

“Villafaña [former federal case prosecutor Marie Villafaña] told OPR that she ‘could not seem to get [her supervisors] to understand the seriousness of Epstein’s behavior and the fact that he was probably continuing to commit the behavior, and that there was a need to move with necessary speed.’”

Oh, they understood alright.

“Much has been made over the years of Epstein employing a ‘dream team’ of highly skilled lawyers to help persuade federal prosecutors to drop their investigation. Epstein’s advocates included the famed Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz and former U.S. Solicitor General Ken Starr, best known for his role as the independent counsel in the Whitewater investigation, which eventually led to the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton.”

“During the negotiations over the deal, Epstein supplemented his team with Starr and Jay Lefkowitz, who had served in the administrations of former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush. Lefkowitz and Starr had each worked previously with Acosta when he was a junior associate at the law firm of Kirkland & Ellis. Acosta met personally with Lefkowitz and Starr after the non-prosecution agreement was signed but while Epstein’s attorneys were pursuing further review of the deal’s terms at higher levels of the Justice Department.”

Justin Vallejo for The Independent writes that, “Swaths of country believe Democratic Party is a front for a pedophile ring.”

You can consider me a part of that “swath,” Mr. Vallejo.

Unreal real pictures!

None of the pictures have been “photoshopped” or modified in any way.

Truth can definitely be stranger than fiction when it comes to life here on earth and our natural world!

Here are just a few of my favorite pictures I have chosen which demonstrate this.

On the Caribbean island of St. Martin, the white sand beaches and blue waters aren’t the only things that draw in tourists. One major reason that people visit the island is to have an up-close and personal experience with an airplane. At the nearby Princess Juliana International Airport, due to the short runway, approaching aircrafts have to touch down as close as possible, flying over the beach at minimal altitude. It is a popular beach activity with nearby bars and restaurants displaying airline departure and arrival times.

Taken by Marko Korosec in eastern Colorado in May 2013, these storms are technically known as low precipitation supercells, but by storm chasers, they have earned the nickname “motherships.” Such storms have a persistent, rotating updraft and can lead to tornadoes and are known to also drop large amounts of hail and rain. This particular image won first place in the 2014 National Geographic Traveler Magazine Photo Contest, due to this “mothership’s” otherworldly appearance.

If you’re lucky enough, this is the view you get to see every day if you work in the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. This particular phenomenon only happens a few times a year and causes Dubai’s skyline to be totally engulfed by a deeply dense and vast fog, allowing the skyscrapers to peek out from under it.

The people occupying this space seem to be floating in mid-air, above several stories of cartoon buildings. But this is not a Photoshop trick. The floor that the people are standing on is simply painted to give a 3-D appearance. People with a fear of heights would likely have some issues with this room, at least until they were assured that the floor is, in fact, real and level.

At first glance, it appears as though this boat is floating above the water. While most would claim that this image has been photoshopped, in reality, the boat is actually sitting on top of the water. The beautiful water is so crystal-clear that it plays a trick on your mind. The location of this picture is thought to be off the coast of Greece.

In Gansu, China there lies one of the most colorful and vibrant mountain ranges on Earth. It covers an area of 124 square miles. The colors and formations are the results of deposits of sandstone and other minerals over the course of time.

Although this image may seem far from reality, that’s what makes it so amazing. This is a photograph taken in the Namibian desert at twilight. This picture was taken by a National Geographic photographer in a location known as Dead Vlei. There is an intense amount of light on the sand dunes in the distance, while the foreground is still in early morning shadow. With the trees like silhouettes, the picture looks like a painting. The orange background is a sand dune known as Big Daddy, which is almost 1,200 feet tall, and the white dots are patches of white grass.

Ultimate face-to-face encounter with a 5 meter long (16+ feet), saltwater crocodile and a modern-day dinosaur, at Crocosaurus Cove.

“Fly – me – to – the – moon…” This driver obviously wasn’t wearing a seatbelt.   

Now that’s one big shark, by anyone’s standards!

Waterspout over Tampa Bay, Florida. Awesome!

This photo was taken from the perfect angle in which the girl’s body is hidden behind the mirror.

What can you say about this picture except wow!

We know a rainbow appears after the rain, and it seems as if, in this case, the rain wasn’t over when the rainbow appeared. This person was fortunate enough to witness this beautiful natural phenomenon, and even luckier to capture this rare moment on camera!

Upon first glance, it looks like this grasshopper is riding a tiny bicycle. Forget about photoshop and forget about photography skills – nothing and no one can compete with the works of Mother Nature. There’s almost nothing as breathtaking as nature and discovering the hidden nooks and crannies of the natural world.

The ballerina tree.

This last one is not actually a single picture, so, it is an exception to the rule of all of these other pictures, but I thought it was worth including.  It is a combination of 48 photos of the sun, taken for a year, in the same place and at the same time. The highest point is the summer solstice and the lowest point is the winter solstice. The result is the symbol for infinity. Now that’s pretty cool.

The easy accessibility we all have now to a camera being on us at all times, has led to more and more amazing photos, and our ability to document what’s going on around us like never before.     

According to Robert Simpson for CAMERA Magazine, “The accessible nature of photography in the present day, especially through smartphones, has allowed the number of photos taken to skyrocket.”

“Data from Mary Meeker’s Internet Trends report of 2014 stated that, ‘…people uploaded an average of 1.8 billion digital images every single day. That’s 657 billion photos per year. Another way to think about it: Every two minutes, humans take more photos than ever existed in total 150 years ago.’ As the population of smartphone users grows, so will the amount of photographs taken.”

“Much more recently, digital media analyst Benedict Evans wrote in a tweet in 2018, ‘In 1999, the peak of the film-camera industry, consumers took around 80 billion photos (according to Kodak). Apple now says 1trillion photos are taken each year on iPhones. So, probably 2-3trillion taken across all smartphones.’”

It has been about 20 years now since we started taking pictures with our phones.   

According to VPM, Virginia Public Media, “The big question now is how many photos have ever been taken throughout history? Researchers concluded that throughout humanity we have taken a little over 3.5 trillion photographs!”

“Despite the immensity of this number, the information on the more recent end of camera history is even more remarkable. For example, of the more than 3.5 trillion photos ever taken more than 10% of those were taken in the last year. That means we’re taking in the neighborhood of 350 billion photos every single year.”

“So, every two minutes humanity is taking more photos than all the photos taken through the 1800’s combined!”

Ancient aliens and ancient technology?

We can find many ancient sculptures and drawings that can point to ancient alien visitors and unexplained ancient technology, if we use our imaginations a little bit.

Here are some examples of ancient sculptures and drawings that point to ancient alien visitors and unexplained ancient technology that don’t even require us to use our imaginations, in my opinion.

Let’s see what you think!

The above glyph [hieroglyphic character or symbol] carved into a lintel [A lintel or lintol is a structural horizontal block that spans the space or opening between two vertical supports.] in the temple of Seti I in Abydos, Egypt.

If these aren’t carvings of a helicopter and other flying ships, what are they?

The Dendera “lightbulb” is a picture carved as a set of stone reliefs in the Hathor temple at the Dendera temple complex in Egypt.

Scientists have determined there is no evidence of soot on the ceilings or walls deep inside any of these temples and tombs, including the pyramids, from torches.  So, how did they make all of these intricate paintings and carvings in the dark? 

A carving in the portico of the Catedral Nueva in Salamanca, Spain, dating back to 1513.

If this isn’t an astronaut, then what is it?

Sculpture located in the Istanbul Museum.  Known as “the Istanbul rocket.” It is over 2,000 years old.

“The Crucifixion.” Located in the Visoki Decani Monastery, in Metohia, Yugoslavia, built in 1330 and still standing.  This fresco is located above the altar.  

So, what do YOU think now?

Like I said, these items don’t require the use of your imagination…, just allowing yourself to believe your own eyes and some common sense.

It’s a liberal “jungle” out there!

Please be aware that every day, while you go about your life, there is an army of people out there working to divide, change, and undermine our way of life and our country.   

It’s true.

There are hundreds of these organization in The United States, including:

The Southern Poverty Law Center

The Brennan Center for Justice

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)

Ballot Initiative Strategy Center (BISC)

State Innovation Exchange (SIX)

ProgressNow

MoveOn

The Pew Research Center

National Immigration Law Center

American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)

Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN)

Black Lives Matter

Wellstone

Resurgent Left

Social Media (Google, Facebook, Twitter)  

The mainstream media (NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, National Public Radio)   

Just to name a few…, although that’s enough!  

All of these groups will say they are “non-partisan,” mainly for tax purposes, but they are anything but, and they’re all very far left of being “non-partisan.” 

I think, to them, “non-partisan” means “without a conscience.”

All of these groups are organizing, training (indoctrinating), fundraising, manipulating, scheming, and taking actions to destroy our democracy twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

None of these organizations give any quarter, nor do they take any prisoners.  They are all ruthless and unapologetic regarding their neo-fascist practices.

The radical left has done a good job indoctrinating all of their “good little Nazis,” who are convinced they are the ones fighting “the Nazis.”

They are really quite sad and pathetic, but, in reality they’re very dangerous.

First, Americans need to realize and concede that these anti-America groups and factions exist.

Secondly, we have to drag them out into the sunlight and expose them for what they are.

And thirdly, we have to fight them, resist them, and counter their actions via any means possible…, be that politically, lawfully, socially, or economically.

These people cannot just be allowed to operate, under our noses and without any rebuttal any longer.

These anti-America “Americans” must be confronted, engaged, and defeated.

Our lives and our children’s lives literally depend on it.

Donald Trump is exactly the kind of person George Washington and the founding fathers envisioned as a President.

Yes…, Donald Trump is exactly the kind of person George Washington and the founding fathers envisioned as a President or as a member of Congress. 

The founding fathers envisioned successful and accomplished people sacrificing their time, and serving a term or two in government for the good of their country, before returning back to private life and letting another citizen step forward for the good of the country.

The founding fathers envisioned people who had gained some sort of expertise, knowledge, and wisdom in their private ventures, and then putting their experience and talent to work for our country. 

The founding fathers did not envision lifelong politicians who would bring nothing to the table other than their ability to get elected somehow.

The founding fathers did not envision individuals staying 20 years, 30 years, 40 years, or even longer in office, and leaving politics significantly richer than when they came.

Like George Washington, Donald Trump was not a politician.  Like George Washington, he was a reluctant servant, who left a comfortable life to do what felt needed to be done for the American people and the country.

Our founding fathers, truly, were wise men.

They established a form of government never before seen in this world.

A government of the people, by the people, for the people.

From the Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

Nothing like this had ever been established before.

These founding fathers were undoubtedly great men.

Although I have said that being a great man, sometimes, only requires you to speak the truth and live up to the truth…, like the founding fathers, Abraham Lincoln, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Here are some quotes from our founding fathers I feel are especially notable”  

“I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth – that god governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?” – Benjamin Franklin

“To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.” – Thomas Paine

“Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it.” – John Adams

“A fondness for power is implanted, in most men, and it is natural to abuse it, when acquired.” – Thomas Jefferson

“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion….The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism.” – George Washington

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.” – Thomas Jefferson

“Experience hath shown, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.” – Thomas Jefferson

“If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” –  George Washington

“Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.” – George Washington

Thomas R. Pickering and James Stoutenberg of The New York Times notes that, “In September 1796, George Washington, weary of partisan combat just eight years after the ratification of the Constitution and the founding of the nation, wrote a farewell address explaining why he would not seek a third term. His message is worth remembering in our current political moment.”

“In elaborate and thoughtful prose, Washington raised red flags about disunity, false patriotism, special interests, extreme partisanship, fake news, the national debt, foreign alliances and foreign hatreds. With uncanny foresight, he warned that the most serious threat to our democracy might come from disunity within the country rather than interference from outside. And he foresaw the possibility of foreign influence over our political system and the rise of a president whose ego and avarice would transcend the national interest, raising the threat of despotism.”

“Washington certainly had great confidence, but in his address he didn’t brag about his accomplishments. On the contrary, he beseeched the Almighty to soften the impact of his errors and expressed hopes that the country would forgive them.”

“He cautioned against both overly friendly alliances (lest another country’s interests and wars become our own) and excessive hatreds (lest we provoke unnecessary conflict and war with others).”

“Some of Washington’s most prescient warnings were about the dangers of factionalism. He wrote that should one group, ‘sharpened by the spirit of revenge,’ gain domination over another, the result could be ‘a more formal and permanent despotism.’ The despot’s rise would be fueled by ‘disorders and miseries’ that would gradually push citizens ‘to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual.’”

“As if envisioning the political tribalism and 24/7 cable news culture of today, he urged political leaders to restrain ‘the continual mischiefs’ of political parties. The ‘spirit of party,’ he wrote, ‘serves always to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection.’”

“And then he arrived at one of his greatest concerns: The ways in which hyperpartisanship could open the door ‘to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus, the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.’”

“Since 1893, a senator has read the farewell address on the floor of the Senate every year on Washington’s Birthday, alternating annually by political party. Bluntly speaking, it’s become little more than an exercise in bipartisan lip service. The House of Representatives stopped reading it decades ago. This was, at least, a form of honesty. Clearly no one was listening anymore.”

“Washington’s goal was to ensure that the young country became stable enough to withstand the threats to liberty and freedom he saw on the horizon — a horizon that has now stretched 220 years into the future. We can never say he didn’t warn us.”

President Washington was definitely uncanny in his predictions for the future.

The funny thing about this article is that The New York Times tries sell us that the republicans and President Trump are the problems Washington was talking about in his farewell address and not the democrats and themselves!

“Cheaters, cheaters, pumpkin eaters!”

I remember this rhyme from when I was a kid.

Yes, it is childish, but, whatever, I’m rolling with it!  

During Joe Biden’s October 24th appearance on the progressive podcast “Pod Save America,” Biden said, “We’re in a situation where we have put together, and you guys did it for our administration, President Obama’s administration before this, we have put together I think the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.”

In this instance, I believe you Sleepy Joe!

It’s amazing the information you can get out of Joe Biden if you just let him talk without the aid of a teleprompter. 

So, now that we have that established…, according to the Brennan Center for Justice, “It is important to protect the integrity of our elections. But we must be careful not to undermine free and fair access to the ballot in the name of preventing phantom voter fraud.”

“Politicians at all levels of government have repeatedly, and falsely, claimed the 2016 and 2018 elections were marred by millions of people voting illegally. However, extensive research reveals that fraud is very rare, voter impersonation is virtually nonexistent, and many instances of alleged fraud are, in fact, mistakes by voters or administrators. The same is true for mail ballots, which are secure and essential to holding a safe election amid the coronavirus pandemic.”

“The Brennan Center’s seminal report, ‘The Truth About Voter Fraud,’ conclusively demonstrated that most allegations of fraud turn out to be baseless and that most of the few remaining allegations reveal irregularities and other forms of election misconduct.”

Of course they are.  

Have you read the MrEricksonRule’s Center for Justice report that brings to light massive democrat election fraud?

It carries about as much weight as this piece of Brennan Center propaganda.

Supposedly, The Brennan Center for Justice at the New York University Law School is a bipartisan law and public policy institute seen as liberal or progressive in its policy positions and views. The organization is named after Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan.

The Brennan Center’s own website says, “The Brennan Center is equal parts think tank, public interest law firm and advocacy organization. The Brennan Center serves as a generator of legal theory and as an expert on democracy reform, equipping and empowering journalists, attorneys, civic engagement organizations, and other national partners to achieve immediate wins and make long-term strides toward an inclusive and just democracy.”

Their form of “an inclusive and just democracy” does not include people who don’t think like they do, and “just democracy” is whatever they say it is…, and you better not question them.  

What a couple of good little Nazis!

If you visit the Brennan Center’s website, it will become apparent quite quickly that they oppose President Trump and are proactive in their attacks on him and his administration.   

It would not surprise me at all if these people were a driving force behind many of the issues we find ourselves having with this election.

It’s amazing how many of these “centers” exist in our country, whose soul intention is destroying our country as we know it.     

I’ve heard many “talking heads” representing the democrats, and many hosts and contributors to many shows on the fake news and liberal propaganda media say:

“There may be some instances of voter fraud, but not enough to matter.”

“There may be some cases voter fraud, but not enough to make a difference in the outcome.”

“The rate of voter fraud is within acceptable ranges.”

There is a huge difference between “voter fraud” on a case by case instance, and large scale “ballot fraud” or large scale “ballot data dumps,” “intentional voting machine software manipulation,” and overall “election fraud.”

 The 2020 election cannot be compared to prior elections. 

In the 2020 election, democrats were prepared to pull out all the stops if needed, and do whatever it took to defeat President Trump.

That is precisely why counts were halted in battleground states on election night, after it was determined President Trump was on track to win these states.

This gave the democrats time to produce enough votes, electronically, or physically, to overtake President Trump’s vote totals, when the counting recommenced.  

It was quite obvious to me, and I will go to my grave believing this was the case.

Whether or not The President’s legal team is able to actually gain access to the system and the physical ballots, in order to be able to document this cheating and bring it to light is another story.

If they really believe the election was fair and square, and they are interested in making sure our elections are fair and square, Joe Biden, his campaign, and the democrats should welcome validation of this election’s integrity, not ignore it, fight it, or run from it.

Nobody wants their vote to be disqualified by an opposing illegitimate vote.

Put your hand up if you’re willing to sacrifice your vote to a cheater.

Hmmm…, I’m not seeing any hands out there.

And it doesn’t make any difference if the cheating is on a small scale or a large scale.

Cheating is cheating.

It’s the year 2020 ladies and gentlemen.  We are more than capable of instituting an election system which would safeguard us from virtually all of the fraud issues, if that’s what our politicians (and I’m referring mainly to the democrats) wanted.

Biden and the democrats are not going to be able effectively govern the country if tens of millions of Americans believe Biden is an illegitimate president who got into office by way of a rigged and stolen election.     

Hopefully, we won’t be forced to deal with that situation.

Thank you, MrEricksonRules.  

My, how things have changed.

In the beginning, the states pretty much ruled themselves.  They were like their own separate, little, “countries.” 

But they were connected to each other, physically, economically, and ideologically.   

They recognized the value of banding together for protection internationally and the value of being able to deal with other countries as a single, united, entity.  

So, the states created The Constitution to spell out how this collection of states would function under a single federal government umbrella.

They had no idea how immense and all-encompassing and all-controlling that federal “umbrella” would become.   

Lenore T. Adkins, for the “ShareAmerica” website, writes, ‘“We do need a State Department. We do need a Department of Defense,’ says Karla Jones, director of international relations and federalism at the American Legislative Exchange Council, referring to the federal entities responsible for implementing the country’s foreign and defense policies.”

“The U.S. relies on a system called ‘federalism:’ Powers not granted to the federal government are reserved for the states and the people. It’s an important concept to understand because citizens encounter different levels of government daily, but in several ways.”

It’s also important to recognize that the federal government seems to be expanding its “powers,” and encroaching on states’ rights more and more all the time.

So, what does the federal government do?

Better said, what does the federal government do that we and the states have allowed it to do?

“Only the federal government can regulate interstate and foreign commerce, declare war and set taxing, spending and other national policies.”

But the federal government has accumulated power exponentially over the years.  Power that it was never intended to have.

Let’s take a look at our federal government and how grotesquely “obese” it has become.

Here is a list of the major departments that the federal government is broken into, along with their number of employees, their annual budgets, how many subsidiaries they have and some of the highlights of what they do: 

Department of State

Employees: 69,000

Budget: $52.404 billion

Includes 62 different offices and bureaus, including the Office of Global Intergovernmental Affairs, the Office of Civil Rights, the Office of Global Women’s Issues, and the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs.   

Department of the Treasury

Employees: 86,049

Budget: $20 billion

Includes 17 different offices and bureaus, including the IRS and the federal mints. 

Department of Defense

Employees: 2.86 million     

Budget: $721.5 billion

Includes 23 different agencies and departments, including the Army, Navy and Air Force, and also the National Security Agency.

Department of Justice

Employees: 113,543

Budget: $29.9 billion

Includes 47 different offices and bureaus, including the Office of the Attorney General, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the United States Marshals Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). The department is also responsible for running the federal prison system.

Department of the Interior

Employees: 70,003

Budget: $20.7 billion

Includes 62 different offices and bureaus, including the Office of Emergency Management (OEM), the National Parks Service, the Office of Indian Affairs, and the Bureau of Land Management.  NASA (The National Aeronautics and Space Administration) technically falls under the Department of the Interior, although it is an independent agency of the U.S. Federal Government responsible for the civilian space program, as well as aeronautics and space research.

Department of Agriculture

Employees: 105,778

Budget: $155 billion

Includes 20 different offices and agencies, including the Farm Service Agency, the Food Safety and Inspection Service, and the United States Forest Service. 

Department of Commerce

Employees: 43,880

Budget: $9.67 billion

Includes 16 different bureaus and services, including the International Trade Administration, the Bureau of the Census, the Patent and Trademark Office, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the National Weather Service.

Department of Labor

Employees: 17,450

Budget: $12.1 billion

Includes 30 different offices and administrations, including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs, and Job Corps.

Department of Health and Human Services

Employees: 79,540

Budget: $1.286 trillion

Includes 22 different centers, offices and agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Department of Housing and Urban Development

Employees: 8,416

Budget: $32.6 billion

Includes 11 different offices, including the Office of Equal Employment Opportunity, the Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, and the Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships (HUD).

Department of Transportation

Employees: 58,622

Budget: $75.1 billion

Includes 11 different offices and administrations, including the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Federal Highway Administration, the Federal Railroad Administration, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Department of Energy

Employees: 12,944

Budget: $27.9 billion

Includes 12 different offices, administrations and programs, including the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the National Nuclear Security Administration, the Cybersecurity, Energy Security and Emergency Response program, and the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Program.

Department of Education

Employees: 3,912

Budget: $68 billion

Includes 19 different offices, boards and councils, including the President’s Advisory Board on Historically Black Colleges and Universities, the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, the National Assessment Governing Board, the Office of Federal Student Aid, and the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education.

Department of Veterans Affairs

Employees: 383,040

Budget: $180 billion

Includes 5 different administrations and offices, including the Veterans Health Administration, the Veterans Benefits Administration, the National Cemetery Administration, and the Veteran Employment Services Office.

Department of Homeland Security

Employees: 229,000

Budget: $51.672 billion

Includes 15 different agencies and offices, including the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the U.S. Coast Guard, and the U.S. Secret Service. 

Then we spend over $8 billion dollars to fund and operate Congress and the Senate per year.  This is for 535 members of Congress and staff members of over 13,000.

We also spend over $7 billion to fund the federal Judiciary per year.  The federal judiciary has over 30,000 employees.

Lastly, we have expenses for The White House, The White House staff (377) and for The President and The Vice-President, which run around $100 million annually.

That’s a total of:

372 different agencies, offices, bureaus, programs and administrations…,

Representing 4,185,091 (that’s over 4 million) total employees and elected officials…,

At a total cost of $2.867 trillion (that $8,600 annually for every man, woman and child).  Now think about how many people don’t pay federal income tax.  That $8,600 goes up pretty quick for the rest of us.

Wow.  Those are some staggering numbers!

And that’s just to support our federal government’s operations. 

We’re not even talking about how much we pay to fund our state and local governments as well!

Remember, these are only the federal government’s costs of doing business.

This does not include the taxes collected and then redistributed back to the American people [and people here illegally] monetarily, or in some other form of value, like infrastructure, housing, etc.  

Please note:  In American public finance, discretionary spending is government spending implemented through an appropriations bill. This spending is an optional part of fiscal policy, in contrast to entitlement programs (non-discretionary) for which funding is mandatory and determined by the number of eligible recipients.

Please be aware that there were only three original departments created back in 1789, the State Department, the Treasury Department, and the War Department, which evolved into the Department of Defense.   

All of the other departments were created at much later dates.

The Department of the Interior was created in 1849, followed by the Department of Agriculture in 1862.

Next was the Department of Justice in 1870, followed by the Department of Labor in 1913.  

1913 was also the first year for federal income tax as we know it.  We’ll talk more about taxes later.

In 1937 the Department of commerce was created, followed by the Department of Health and Human Services in 1953.  

After this is when the federal government really started to balloon.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development was created in 1965.

The Department of Transportation was created in 1967.

Department of Energy in 1977.

Department of Education in 1979.

Department of Veteran’s Affairs in 1989.

And the Department of Homeland Security in 2002.    

I mentioned earlier we’d get to talking about taxes…, well, here we are.

Here is the history of federal taxes:

In order to help pay for its war effort in the American Civil War, Congress imposed its first personal income tax in 1861.  It was part of the Revenue Act of 1861 (3% of all incomes over $800, rescinded in 1872). Congress also enacted the Revenue Act of 1862, which levied a 3% tax on incomes above $600, rising to 5% for incomes above $10,000. Rates were raised in 1864. This income tax was then repealed in 1872.

So, at this point, we’re back to no federal income taxes.

Forty-one years later, the 16th Amendment was ratified in 1913, which states:

“The Congress shall have the power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.”

So, now the taxation gravy train was off and running!

Congress then enacted an income tax in October 1913 as part of the Revenue Act of 1913, levying a 1% tax on net personal incomes above $3,000, with a 6% surtax on incomes above $500,000.

By 1918, the top rate of the income tax was increased to 77% (on income over $1,000,000, equivalent of $16,717,815 in 2018 dollars to finance World War I. The average rate for the rich however, was 15%.

During World War II, Congress introduced payroll withholding and quarterly tax payments.

A comedic representation by Clifford K. Berryman of the debate to introduce a sales tax in the United States in 1933 and end the income tax.

I have personally argued my support of a a national sales tax (or a consumption tax) as opposed to a federal income tax. Please see my prior blogs on this subject.

At first, the income tax was incrementally expanded by Congress, and then inflation automatically raised most persons into tax brackets formerly reserved for the wealthy until income tax brackets were adjusted for inflation. Income tax now applies to almost two-thirds of the population. The lowest-earning workers, especially those with dependents, pay no income taxes as a group and actually get a small subsidy from the federal government because of child credits and the Earned Income Tax Credit.

While the government was originally funded via tariffs upon imported goods, tariffs now represent only a minor portion of federal revenues.

In the 1930s, the New Deal introduced Social Security to rectify the first three problems (retirement, injury-induced disability, or congenital disability). It introduced the FICA tax as the means to pay for Social Security.

In the 1960s, Medicare was introduced to rectify the fourth problem (health care for the elderly). The FICA tax was increased in order to pay for this expense.

The total federal budget for 2020 is $4.79 trillion, but we ALWAYS spend more than what we budget. That’s why our federal deficit is in the neighborhood of $26 trillion right now…, but that’s another blog for another day.

Remember I mentioned there are over 4 million total employees and elected officials employed by the federal government…, and more than half of these politicians and bureaucrats live in Washington DC and the surrounding areas of Maryland and northern Virginia.

These areas see a consistent voter registration rate of 90-95% democrat and only 5% republican.

When you hear the term “deep state,” this is what they’re referring to. 

A bureaucratic workforce that is loyal to the democrat party, regardless of who the American people choose to run the country.

The “deep state” is into self-preservation and expanding itself (bigger government).  That is why they have hitched their wagon to the democrat party, and why you can always expect the democrats to pretend to solve any issue by throwing more government, and more of our money, at it.     

“Here endeth the lesson,” as Sean Connery said, when he played a Gman in “The Untouchables.” 

That’s when being a Gman was still an honorable profession!

RIP Sean Connery.

Governor “Fredo” Cuomo…, I mean Governor Andrew Cuomo, of New York, would rather see the body count rise than a COVID vaccine under President Trump.

“The good news is the Pfizer tests look good and we’ll have a vaccine shortly. The bad news is that it’s about two months before Joe Biden takes over and that means this administration is going to be implementing a vaccine plan,” Cuomo told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America.

According to the New York Post Editorial Board, ‘“We can’t let this vaccine plan go forward the way Trump is planning it,’ Cuomo said. ‘We need to fix it or stop it before it does damage.’”

“Damage?”

What kind of “damage?”  

“Cuomo says Trump vaccination plan is ‘flawed,’ and ‘learns nothing from the past.”

Okay, Fredo…, I doubt you have any understanding of The President’s plan, in this regard.

And, what does “learns nothing from the past” mean?

The “past” what?

Your whole perspective and intent is the only thing that’s “flawed” here, Fredo!    

“It’s probably the lowest thing Governor Andrew Cuomo has ever done, and that’s saying something.”

Really, it’s not.

It’s not even close…, but go on.

“On Monday morning, when everyone else was celebrating the spectacular news that Pfizer’s vaccine for COVID-19 looks 90 percent effective, Cuomo, as is typical, reverted to politics.”

“First, he let people die in nursing homes because of his ineptitude.”

Excuse me, but it wasn’t “ineptitude.”

It was by design.

It was imperative to get the COVID-19 death numbers elevated at the time to add to their negative narrative regarding The President’s response to the China virus.

We were constantly being reminded how many people had died from the virus, when in reality the real number was only a fraction of the number we were constantly bombarded with.

How many times during the vice-presidential debate did “cackling Kamala” feel it was necessary to remind us that “over 200,000 people have died from the virus?”

Five times?

Ten times?

More?

In any regard, it was obvious that this was a talking point the democrats valued quite highly…, whether it was really accurate or not.   

“Now Cuomo wants the body count to keep climbing because God forbid President Trump oversees a vaccine effort.”

Actually, it has to do with governmental control now, and not President Trump any longer.

‘“What on earth is Governor Cuomo talking about?’ Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) rightly said in a statement. ‘This is great news and everyone — Republicans and Democrats and apolitical folks — should all be jointly thrilled about the possibility of an effective vaccine.’”

The first mistake you’re making Senator Sasse is that you’re assuming we’re talking about a normal human being here…, when we’re not.  We’re talking about a deranged, power hungry, psycho.

‘“After this nasty virus has killed hundreds of thousands of Americans and put millions out of work, it is beyond disgusting that Governor Cuomo would use a glimmer of hope for another worn-out ‘Trump is bad’ talking point. When we get a vaccine, we’re going to need all hands-on deck distributing it as fast as possible — shamelessly politicizing this is dangerous and stupid.’”

I’d lean more towards evil, but, yes, “stupid” and “dangerous” as well.   

“Thank goodness it’s not up to Cuomo about how the nation proceeds. He messed up in New York, he can’t be allowed to fail nationally. Hopefully this puts to rest any idea of Cuomo serving in a Joe Biden cabinet — or even being governor again.”

Au contraire mon ami! 

On the contrary my friends!   

As far as the democrats are concerned, these comments put him at the front of the list…, on both accounts!

Calling all patriots!

It’s time to fight back against Google, Facebook and Twitter.

These applications have undoubtedly become unapologetic propaganda arms for the democrats.

They even stooped to trying to influence the election…, which they did.

But we don’t have to be bound to them.

Their disgusting behavior is not a fate we have to accept.

This is not OK.   

It’s time for people who value their freedom, along with their First Amendment rights, to ditch these anti-American, social media manipulators for some much better options.

I wonder what the reaction would be on Wall Street if each of these applications lost million users within a couple of months?

I’m not sure, but I’d sure like the chance to find out!  

I say let the liberals censor each other as much as they want.

Let them continue to propagate their lies to each other to their heart’s content.

But me, I’m checking out.

I’ve been put in “Facebook jail” and censored for the last time.

I refuse to let them and their armies of little Nazis impose their censorship, their “fact checking” and “community values” and “community standards” on my voice any longer.

We are dangerously close to the type of media control we see in Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, etc., with our own “deep state” controlled media and the recent social media censorship. 

   

How many times have you wished there were conservative alternatives to these fascist organizations?

Well, the good news is there are!

Instead of Google, try using 4conservative.com or 4search.com.

And instead of Twitter or Facebook, try using Parler.com.

According to Chris Ciacciaof FOXBusiness, “In the wake of the presidential election, the social media app Parler topped Apple’s App Store for the first time over the weekend.”

“In an email to FOX Business, research firm Apptopia said downloads for the ‘non-biased, free speech’ platform topped 310,000 over the past week, with the peak starting on Nov. 6. In the week prior, the app had been downloaded just over 150,000 times.”

“Earlier this month, Parler CEO John Matze criticized what he described as Twitter and Facebook censorship surrounding the election, saying that the companies had ‘gone too far.”  He added that his app was ‘free of editorial bullies trying to tell you what to think.’”

The sooner we free ourselves from Google, Facebook and Twitter, the better we’ll feel, and the better off we’ll all be.

The next thing you know they’ll be recording our phone conversations and monitoring those for unacceptable speech.

Oh wait…, I forgot they already do record our conversations!

They just haven’t gotten to the point where we receive warnings in the mail or something about our unacceptable speech which they have detected!

Just wait…, it’s coming folks.

It’s coming.
