NBC is just “democrat propaganda.”

And in case there was really any doubt about this, Lester “the forehead” Holt and his “journalist” friends just confirmed it!

NBC is just one of the “democrat propaganda” entities, however.

Brian Flood of Fox News reports that, “NBC News anchor Lester Holt received praise from liberal media figures after saying reporters don’t need to hear both sides of a story before determining the ‘truth.’”

‘“I think it’s become clear that fairness is overrated … the idea that we should always give two sides equal weight and merit does not reflect the world we find ourselves in,’ Holt said on Tuesday night while accepting an award at the 45th Murrow Symposium.”

Spoken like a true “fake news” propagandist!

He doesn’t have time for “fairness,” when he’s pushing the democrats’ agenda!

C’mon on!

And don’t be concerned with “determining the truth!”

As a public service (disservice really), we’ll do that for you!

And, boy, these democrats sure like giving each other awards, don’t they!

‘“That the sun sets in the west is a fact. Any contrary view does not deserve our time or attention,’ Holt continued. ‘Decisions to not give unsupported arguments equal time are not a dereliction of journalistic responsibility or some kind of agenda, in fact, it’s just the opposite.’”

So, our friend Lester, here, puts the fact that the sun sets in the west right there with “fact” (according to the democrats) that there is no humanitarian crisis on the Mexican border.

No “dereliction of journalistic responsibility” there!

Can we harken back to an example (one of many) when Lester “the forehead” Holt had a hard time determining “the truth” on our behalf?

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, in an article published January 24, 2018, “NBC News is reeling after ‘Nightly News’ anchor Lester Holt appears to have been badly fooled by North Korean propagandists — giving a cheery report from a ski resort in the Hermit Kingdom that looked to be bustling when it was widely known to actually be a ghost town.”

Huh.

A propagandist being fooled by other propagandists. 

Definitely not a good look there.

“Holt — who returned early from North Korea after scathing reviews — reported for ‘Nightly News’ from the Masikryong ski resort on Monday, a facility that is the brainchild of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un and is typically empty. The resort, built to create the appearance of a prosperous nation, was largely deserted during peak 2017 ski season, according to multiple reports.”

On a side note, this was done by Kim in an attempt to show his country was on par with South Korea, which was preparing to host the Winter Olympics.

“But for Holt’s appearance, the North Korean government appears to have brought in skiers — wearing identical outfits — and staged the scene, something Holt did not appear to realize.”

“The resort is a ‘source of immense pride for a country trying to present a new and modern face to the world,’ Holt said during his report.”

“NBC News did not respond to requests for comment as to whether Holt’s unexpectedly early departure from North Korea was related to the embarrassing ski resort snafu. But inside 30 Rockefeller Plaza, NBC’s more seasoned journalists were cringing.”

“Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un famously rode the ski lift, without skies, when touting his resort.”

“Holt’s coverage was overseen by embattled NBC News President Noah Oppenheim, who traveled with Holt and a camera crew to North Korea weeks before the Peacock Network will cover the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. Now Holt’s credulous reporting has cast a cloud over the network’s ability to accurately portray the Korean peninsula going into the Olympics.”

This is they guy you’re supposed to trust to tell you “the truth?” 

‘“It’s been reported that the state-of-the-art resort cost the Kim regime $35 million to build, even with slave labor, while most of the country starved,’ the Daily Mail wrote. ‘It is a bizarre thing to prioritize in an impoverished nation with a ramshackle infrastructure where around 40 percent of its people are undernourished.’”

‘“Yes, NBC is eager to promote next month’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. But that hardly required anyone to travel north of the DMZ to film propaganda for a regime that enslaves 25 million people — and holds another 50 million southerners as quasi-hostages, under constant (if low-grade) threat of war,’ an editorial said.”

“As for Holt, the North Korean trip is his biggest debacle since he hosted the first presidential debate in September of 2016, when he was widely criticized for anti-Trump bias, so much so that ‘NBC Nightly News’ dropped sharply in the ratings when compared to arch-rival ABC, and has yet to recover.”

Remember, Holt sees no reason to “hear both sides of a story before determining the “truth.”

Flood then continues, “Holt then said ‘providing an open platform for misinformation, for anyone to come say whatever they want, especially when issues of public health and safety are at stake, can be quite dangerous,’ before declaring the duty of reporters is to be ‘fair to the truth.’”

Of course, that isn’t taking into consideration your own platform for “misinformation,” right Lester?!

“Critics of Holt’s approach saw his comments as essentially a dog whistle to liberal reporters who see themselves as the arbiters of truth and, therefore, can cover the news from a one-sided perspective with the approval of NBC’s top anchor.”

“Cornell Law School professor and media critic William A. Jacobson didn’t think Holt’s remarks apply to the modern world where outspoken liberals are often working as journalists.”

‘“In a better world in which the mainstream major media had a history of fairness and non-partisanship, Holt’s point that journalism inherently involves filtering information might make sense. This is not such a better world, this is a world in which the mainstream major media wears its partisanship on its sleeve, manipulating the news cycle to the advantage of Democrats,’ Jacobson told Fox News. ‘In the real world, Holt’s advice simply justifies media political bias.’”

“Left-wing New York University journalism professor Jay Rosen felt Holt’s comments were reason to celebrate.”

‘“When the chief anchor of one of the major networks agrees that ‘bothsidesing’ everything is bad practice, critics have finally won a point and they should celebrate,’ Rosen tweeted.”

Woohoo!

“Fake news” all the way!!!

“Rosen followed up: ‘Someone like Lester Holt is a center of gravity among news workers and if he thinks it’s okay not to both sides everything that can influence thought and behavior across a lot of desks.’”

“CNN’s left-leaning ‘Reliable Sources’ 9which are anything but “reliable”) media newsletter highlighted Holt’s remarks as a ‘sharp critique of bothsidesism,’ a notable turn of phrase from a reporting team that almost completely reserves its criticisms for right-leaning outlets, including calls for censorship.”

Censorship is, of course, is the bellwether strategy for a fascist political party.

“Outspokenly liberal CNN White House correspondent John Hardwood simply wrote, ‘Thank you’ to Holt.”

So, at least we know where all of these “jounalists” are coming from…, as if we didn’t already know.

“Holt replaced Brian Williams as anchor of ‘NBC Nightly News’ in 2015 after Williams admitted to lying about an Iraq War story he’d told for years. He was suspended without pay for six months but eventually returned as an anchor for MSNBC, NBC’s left-wing (you mean more left-wing) cable affiliate.”

Who’s a “White Supremacist” now?

Merriam-Webster defines a “white supremacist” as, “A person who believes that the white race is inherently superior to other races and that white people should have control over people of other races.”

I would agree with this definition…, and by this definition, I would guesstimate the number of these people, in the United States, is a very small fraction of the people…, like .0001 percent.

I also feel safe in saying that the vast majority of “white people” in our country feel this ideology is wrong and divisive.

The democrats, however, have now hijacked, and are attempting to redefine the term, “white supremacist” to mean anyone who doesn’t agree with their extreme totalitarian ideology…, and especially anyone who supported, or supports, former President Trump, and conservatism in general.

So, in essence, they’re trying to dump 70 million plus of us, if not more, into a “white supremacist” barrel that previously only held up to like 35,000 people. 

In addition, the democrats are attempting to redefine these people, who don’t agree with their extreme totalitarian ideology, as domestic terrorists!

This overt attempt at creating their own ideological police state is very dangerous, and scary, to be honest.

The Associated Press (AP) reports, “White supremacist propaganda reached alarming levels across the U.S. in 2020, according to a new report that the Anti-Defamation League [ADL] [An international Jewish non-governmental organization based in the United States.] provided to The Associated Press.”

“There were 5,125 cases of racist, anti-Semitic, anti-LGBTQ and other hateful messages spread through physical flyers, stickers, banners and posters, according to Wednesday’s report.” That’s nearly double the 2,724 instances reported in 2019. Online propaganda is much harder to quantify, and it’s likely those cases reached into the millions, the anti-hate organization said.”

What about the “hate speech” directed at President Trump?

I would venture to say the cases of this far exceeded 5,125 cases, AND THAT’S BY DEMOCRAT POLITICIANS ALONE!!!

And how about the “hate speech” directed at the supporters of President Trump?!

The cases of this by democrat politicians and the democrat propaganda mainstream media has to be in the thousands as well.

This doesn’t even take into consideration the number of “hate speech” cases by democrats in general.

But that’s okay, because we’re talking about President Trump and his supporters, here, and they deserve it, right? 

“The ADL, which was founded more than a century ago, said that last year marked the highest level of White supremacist propaganda seen in at least a decade.”

Right back at ya with the anti-Trump and anti-conservative propaganda.

“Its report comes as federal authorities investigate and prosecute those who stormed the U.S. Capitol in January, some of whom are accused of having ties to or expressing support for hate groups and antigovernment militias.”

‘“As we try to understand and put in perspective the past four years, we will always have these bookends of Charlottesville and Capitol Hill,’ group CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said.”

Okay, we see where you’re coming from.

It is a matter of selective perspective.  

‘“The reality is there’s a lot of things that happened in between those moments that set the stage,’ he said.”

There certainly was.

“Christian Picciolini, a former far-right extremist who founded the deradicalization group Free Radicals Project, said the surge in propaganda tracks with White supremacist and extremist recruiters seeing crises as periods of opportunity.”

Really?

‘“They use the uncertainty and fear caused by crisis to win over new recruits to their “us vs. them” narrative, painting the “other” as the cause of their pain, grievances or loss,’ Picciolini told the AP. ‘The current uncertainty caused by the pandemic, job loss, a heated election, protest over extrajudicial police killings of Black Americans, and a national reckoning sparked by our country’s long tradition of racism has created a perfect storm in which to recruit Americans who are fearful of change and progress.’”

These are also issues well worth being concerned about…, and being concerned about them doesn’t make someone a “white supremacist.”  

“Propaganda, often distributed with the intention of garnering media and online attention, helps White supremacists normalize their messaging and bolster recruitment efforts, the ADL said in its report. Language used in the propaganda is frequently veiled with a patriotic slant, making it seem benign to an untrained eye.”

Ya…, we wouldn’t want any of this “patriotic” talk catching on!

Do you really want to go there regarding propaganda?

“But some flyers, stickers and posters are explicitly racist and anti-Semitic. One piece of propaganda disseminated by the New Jersey European Heritage Association included the words ‘Black Crimes Matter,’ a derisive reference to the Black Lives Matter movement, along with cherry-picked crime statistics about attacks on White victims by Black assailants.”

No way?!

They actually said, “Black Crimes Matter?!

Unimaginable!!!

“A neo-Nazi group known as Folks Front distributed stickers that include the words ‘White Lives Matter.’”

What?!!!

They actually dared to say, “White Lives Matter?!

Shocking!!!

This cannot be allowed!!!

Do these people have no decency?!!! 

“The propaganda appeared in every state except Hawaii.”

Aloha!  “Pass the poi Mahalo!”

Good for Hawaii.

“The highest levels were seen in Texas, Washington, California, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Virginia and Pennsylvania, according to the report.”

That surprises me, seeing that Washington, California, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Virginia and Pennsylvania, are all such hotbeds of conservative thought!

Now please, please, don’t get me wrong…, I’m not downplaying or excusing the instances of real “hate speech” directed at any group…, but let’s get real here.

In America you’re allowed to have an opinion, regardless of how ignorant or how hateful it is.  That’s the First Amendment, and that’s freedom of speech.

All I’m saying is let’s be honest with what’s going on here…, and let’s not try to hang all of this crap on the 70 million plus of us, whose only crime is loving our country and the American way of life.

Fake News…, Fake News everywhere!

According to David Rutz of Fox News, “The Washington Post made a massive correction Monday to a January report about a phone call between then-President Donald Trump and Georgia elections investigator Frances Watson, admitting it wrongly attributed multiple quotes to Trump based on an anonymous source.”

An “Anonymous source.”

Using “anonymous sources” give the democrat propaganda fake news media license to make up any story they want.

Let’s see how many negative stories are attributed to “anonymous sources” over the next four years about Illegitimate Joe and his democrat friends in Washington. 

My guess would be ZERO.  

Regarding former President Trump, and anyone around him, it was an almost daily occurrence.  

“The Post initially reported Trump had told an official working in Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office to ‘find the fraud’ in the state, which he lost narrowly to Joe Biden, and that she would be a ‘national hero’ if she did.”

My first reaction would be, “so, what?”

“However, a newly emerged recording of the Dec. 23 call found he didn’t use those words. Instead, Trump said she would be ‘praised’ when the ‘right answer comes out’ and encouraged her to closely examine mail-in ballots in Fulton County, the heavily blue and most populated county in the state.”

My biggest issue here is with this “newly emerged recording” stuff.

How many recordings of their calls with former President Trump are there?

It’s like they recorded their conversations with him (Is this even legal?), in the hopes of being able to “catch” him in the act of something…, and if they couldn’t they just made up remarks and attributed them to him.

On a side note, how many “leaked” call with President Biden do you think we’ll be hearing about?

Again, my guess would be ZERO. 

“The Post published a lengthy correction to its story: ‘Correction: Two months after publication of this story, the Georgia secretary of state released an audio recording of President Donald Trump’s December phone call with the state’s top elections investigator. The recording revealed that The Post misquoted Trump’s comments on the call, based on information provided by a source. Trump did not tell the investigator to ‘find the fraud’ or say she would be ‘a national hero’ if she did so. Instead, Trump urged the investigator to scrutinize ballots in Fulton County, Ga., asserting she would find ‘dishonesty’ there. He also told her that she had ‘the most important job in the country right now.’ A story about the recording can be found here. The headline and text of this story have been corrected to remove quotes misattributed to Trump.’”

Well, isn’t that nice?

“CNN also reported on the call citing an unnamed source and waited until Monday afternoon to correct its story, after initially stating Trump said ‘national hero’ and ‘find the fraud’ in its opening paragraph. Many outlets picked up the story, including Vox, ABC News, and NBC News.”

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anybody.

They all jumped into the pool of lies and democrat propaganda, just like they always do.

Sooo predictably “swampy.”

“While news outlets often cite sources who paraphrase conversations they participated in or overheard, using quotes indicates to the reader a subject said those exact words.”

Reeeeeally?

Thank you, professor!

‘“Our media are so, so, so breathtakingly corrupt,’ Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway tweeted. ‘They *always* mischaracterized this call — in a corrupt and fraudulent way. But to actually make up quotes in service of that? We are so screwed. By our disgustingly corrupt and unaccountable media.’”

Much like their “mischaracterizations” of President Trump’s call with the Ukrainian President…, only those “mischaracterizations” were much worse.   

“After MSNBC’s Hayes Brown defended the Post and praised its correction, Hemingway fired back that it was hardly a ‘self-policing win.’”

‘“So, they made up quotes? What in the actual F?’ conservative CNN commentator Mary Katharine Ham tweeted.”

“Conservative writer Mark Hemingway said the Post’s correction and new headline did not adequately reflect its wrongdoing, calling the mistake ‘beyond serious’ and indicative of the lack of accountability in corporate media.”

“In the conversation with Watson, Trump continued to claim he won Georgia by ‘hundreds of thousands of votes’ (which he did) and ‘something bad happened’ there (which it did).”

“Watson told Trump her team and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation was focused on finding the truth and looking into any claims of fraud or wrongdoing.”

“Trump was the first Republican to lose the state in a presidential election since 1992. He repeatedly attacked Raffensperger and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, R., after he lost the race there, accusing them of being corrupt. Multiple audits and investigations did not uncover evidence of widespread fraud in the state, and recounts confirmed the result.”

Former President Trump has responded by saying, “While I appreciate the Washington Post’s correction, which immediately makes the Georgia Witch Hunt a non-story, the original story was a Hoax, right from the very beginning.”

And, “You will notice that establishment media errors, omissions, mistakes, and outright lies always slant one way—against me and against Republicans.,” President Trump said. “Meanwhile, stories that hurt Democrats or undermine their narratives are buried, ignored, or delayed until they can do the least harm—for example, after an election is over.”

And lastly, President Trump added, “Look no further than the negative coverage of the vaccine that preceded the election and the overdue celebration of the vaccine once the election had concluded. A strong democracy requires a fair and honest press. This latest media travesty underscores that legacy media outlets should be regarded as political entities (I would say ‘enemies.’), not journalistic enterprises.”

As we have discussed before, the “media” is supposed to act as a watchdog of government for the people.  When they become participants in the spreading of propaganda for any political interests, “We are so screwed,” in the words of Mollie Hemingway.

These “anti-Trumpers” just won’t quit!

Philip Kennicott, Art and architecture critic, for The Washington Post, writes, “Trump wants a library. He must never have one.”

Okay…, quit beating around the bush, Kennicott…, how do you really feel?

Before we get going, it should be noted that Kennicott is a Pulitzer Prize-winning critic…, which means he’s officially a member of “the club,” and even slimier than your average elitist liberal critic.

Ugh.

But I digress.

Kennicott says, “Former president Donald Trump will have an official portrait in the National Portrait Gallery at some point. And in states where he remains popular, he could have airports, bridges and schools named for him. But Trump must never have an official presidential library, and Congress should move quickly to make sure he never will.”

Uh, excuse me, Phil, but Donald Trump was The President, wasn’t he?

And former presidents get to have presidential libraries, don’t they?

Even impeached Bill Clinton got to have one.

Richard Nixon resigned in shame, and he still got to have one. 

So, what’s your problem?

Why this never-ending discrimination wherever and whenever President Trump is concerned?

Are you and your democrat friends still really that frightened by him?

I guess so.

I can understand why you all are…, but that’s your problem, not ours. 

“On Jan. 20, the day he left office, the National Archives launched the Donald J. Trump Presidential Library website. Already, there are rumors that the former president is engaged with the idea of creating some kind of presidential center, perhaps run by longtime aide Dan Scavino, with a price tag as high as $2 billion.”

“There are rumors?”

How journalistically liberal of you.

There are also rumors that you are an idiot.

By the end of this blog, we’ll see that these are more than just rumors.  

Anyway…, you really have NO idea how much President Trump’s library may cost, Kennicott…, nobody does.

It hasn’t even been designed yet!

Have you seen the price tag for Obama’s proposed mega-complex?

It’s “estimated” to cost at least $500 million.

And who’s going to pay for that library?

Not Barack Obama.

I am sure, however, that President Trump will at least pick-up the lion’s share of the tab for his library.

That’s just how he rolls.     

Kennicott continues, “None of this, however, means that Trump could actually create a presidential center similar to the one planned for former president Barack Obama, or those dedicated to former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. As Anthony Clark, author of ‘The Last Campaign: How Presidents Rewrite History, Run for Posterity & Enshrine Their Legacies,’ wrote recently in Politico, it is unlikely that Trump has the focus, administrative savvy and financial resources to execute a presidential center: ‘Presidential libraries are complicated. And if you understand how they work — and how Trump himself works — it’s nearly impossible to imagine him actually pulling it off,’ Clark writes.”

Wait, what?!

You don’t think President Trump “has the focus, administrative savvy and financial resources to execute a presidential center, unlike Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton?!”

Seriously?!

Obviously, Anthony Clark and you, Philip Kennicott, Mr. Pulitzer Prize winner, don’t seem to be aware that Donald Trump built his fortune in construction, constructing mega-buildings and mega-properties!

How in THEE hell can you sit there and say, “it’s nearly impossible to imagine him actually pulling it off?”

It’s actually quite easy to see President Trump “pulling it off.”

And you two idiots actually get paid to write this stuff?

Kennicott continues, “But that doesn’t mean that Trump won’t try and that, in trying, cause further damage to the country.”

What?!

“Cause further damage to the country?”

His library may end up being an eyesore and appoint of contention for you democrat totalitarians, but that’s about it.

Being in Florida, I can envision President Trump’s library being a popular stop right along with Disney World, The Kennedy Space Center, Universal Studios, etc.   

“That is why Congress should use this moment to reconsider the legislation that helped create and shape the presidential libraries now administered by the National Archives, not just to prevent Trump from perpetrating one last, giant grift, but to reform the system so it serves the country [meaning the democrat totalitarians] better. This is long overdue, and would need to be done even if Trump weren’t trying to raise $2 billion for a Trump center. But his intention to do so makes this urgent, even an issue of national security.”

“An issue of national security?!”

C’mon, Phil, you’re really getting a little ridiculous with your hyperbole, here.

These democrats really are suffering from stage four Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS).

Phil continues with a little history here, which is actually beneficial. “Before Franklin D. Roosevelt decided to donate his presidential papers to the federal government in 1939, the documents and paperwork generated by a president usually were considered the outgoing leader’s personal property. Roosevelt recognized an interest in giving the public access to this material.”

“The 1955 Presidential Libraries Act formalized the process, encouraging presidents to donate their papers, as well as land and a building to house them, which the National Archives would officially maintain.”

“Over the next decades, these privately created, federally administered libraries became increasingly complex, serving as museums, think tanks and shrines, with presidents allowed considerable — often far too much — control over what records were considered presidential and when the public could access them.”

The only presidents Phil has concerns about are the republican presidents, of course.

“Individual presidents used executive orders to make changes, the law was amended and former presidents were required to donate more and more resources to maintaining the federally operated part of these facilities.”

“Finally, in 2017, faced with the possibility of having to donate 60 percent of the total cost of an Obama presidential center to the federal government to cover running the library part of the project, the 44th president opted out of the system almost entirely.”

You see, if you’re a democrat, you’re allowed to “opt out” of whatever you want.”

“When the Obama center opens in Chicago, no official presidential library will be part of the complex, which will be privately built and operated. Obama’s presidential records, the vast bulk of them digital rather than paper, will have to be accessed elsewhere, although the Archives will loan material to the Obama center for exhibitions.”

So, it will be a shrine to Barack Obama and a liberal propaganda production studio, more than a library, and he will be in complete control of what is there and how he prefers to be remembered. I’m sure our collection of wealthy, elitist, liberals will be tripping over themselves to donate money to this.  

“Ordinarily, presidential records can’t be accessed for five, and up to 12, years after a chief executive leaves office. And before leaving office, a president has significant leverage over what the public eventually can see, which documents are delivered to the Archives, which are considered public and which are private, and to weigh in on other matters, including security and the national interest.”

The key word here is “ordinarily.”

“The case of Trump is exceptional by any standard, and he should be afforded no discretion over his records or any privilege to extend the amount of time before the public can see them.”

No discretion whatsoever…, of course not!  Not in President Trump’s case.

“Trump’s 2017 requirement that the National Archives withhold access to his materials until 2033 should be abrogated, and Congress should begin an extraordinary effort to recover as much of his communications legacy as possible, even material that wasn’t deemed ‘presidential.’ Trump’s presidency mixed public and private interests in a way that was unprecedented in modern American history, so his decisions on these matters can’t be trusted.”

“He incited an insurrection [an accusation he was acquitted of, by the way], and many of the people who may have participated in that, including members of Congress, are still actively engaged in public life. The need to know who they are and what they did isn’t just a matter for the FBI, the Justice Department and prosecutors.”

It isn’t just “a matter for the FBI, the Justice Department and prosecutors,” it’s a matter for the Democrat Gestapo!

Are you on drugs, Phil…, because it seems like you’re on drugs.

So, let me get this straight…, you want to use the presidential library process to collect all the information about President Trump you can in an effort to perpetuate prosecutorial attacks against former President Trump and any republicans in Congress who supported him?

You and your readership are sick, Phil.

Just sayin’.

“It is imperative to the nation’s future that we know how and why authoritarianism became so deeply and pervasively rooted in the Trump administration.”

Okay…, timeout!

The BS just keeps flowing out of your mouth like water out of a firehose involved in a five-alarm fire!

First of all, you use the word “authoritarianism.”

“Authoritarianism” is defined as, “The enforcement or advocacy of strict obedience to authority at the expense of personal freedom.  A lack of concern for the wishes or opinions of others.”

Now I ask you…, who does this better describe…, the censoring, cancelling, COVID shutdown mandating democrats, or former President Donald Trump?

Thank you.

“Historians, journalists and biographers need immediate access to this material (with the minimal oversight necessary by professional, nonpartisan archivists [Which means no conservative archivists will be tolerated.] to help educate the American public on the greatest threat to the republic since the Civil War.”

Here we go again with this 180-degree false hyperbole.

“Even a privately funded and operated Trump presidential library, which would be devoted to whitewashing his record and rewriting history, is a terrible and even dangerous idea.”

No, it’s you and your democrat totalitarian friends who are “dangerous,” Phil.

“Further, given Trump’s alleged misuse of charitable funds, including self-dealing, waste and other illegal activities, at his now dissolved New York-based foundation, any intention to start another public entity can only be considered a crime scene waiting to happen.”

The keyword there was “alleged.” Without that word, old Phil boy would have been looking at lawsuit that he could not afford.

What were your feelings about the Clinton Foundation, Phil?

I think we can all make an educated guess about your concerns there, Phil.   

“If it unfortunately does happen, it probably will be in Florida, where state Attorney General Ashley Moody is one of Trump’s top surrogates and a prominent supporter of his false claims of election fraud. So, on this matter, Americans cannot trust the rule of law in Florida, but they can put pressure on corporate and other entities not to donate to any group associated with any effort to build a Trump presidential center. And the FBI can keep a close watch on any national group created to solicit funding for such an endeavor.”

Watch it, Phil, with your false claims about his false claims of election fraud.

And you want the FBI to, “Keep a close watch on any national group created to solicit funding for such an endeavor?”

Honestly, it sounds like another Gestapo type tactic, but now that I think about it more, I’m sure it could be arranged. The FBI is just sooo “swampy” these days.

“Finally [Thank God!], Congress can improve American record-keeping and preservation by forbidding future presidents from raising money for presidential centers while still in office. Access to presidential records is also expensive and time consuming — even digital documents, the quantity of which has grown exponentially since most communications became electronic, need to be sorted, surveyed and labeled, a process that is laborious. Rachel Vagts, president of the Society of American Archivists, points out that the most urgent need, right now, is better funding for the National Archives, and a better culture of compliance with laws governing record-keeping.”

Ahhh, yes…, mo’ money, mo’ money, mo’ money…, and the proper level of compliance with the government, of course.

“Trump reportedly [Oh, really…, reported by who?] flouted those laws on a regular basis, tearing up and discarding even paper documents. [Can you imagine that?!  Someone throwing away or tearing up some piece of paper they wrote something on?!  For the love of God!!!] The extent to which he and his administration destroyed records and communicated outside of federal systems is unknown [Hillary’s “communications outside of federal systems” is known, and we have all learned it’s no big deal, so…], which is why he and his people should be cut out of the process of preserving those documents. And Americans should shame anyone — including architecture firms, exhibit designers and corporate donors — who helps Trump perpetuate the lies that nearly destroyed our 244-year-old effort to create a democratically governed republic.”

Ok…, that’s enough, Phil…, I think I just threw up in my mouth a little there.   

Philip Kennicott seems to have extended his supposed expertise far outside of the realm of an Art and architecture critic, here.

You should really just stay in your lane, Phil…, you kind of embarrassed yourself here, and exposed yourself as one of the true, card carrying, democrat neo-Nazis.  

Kennicott has collected a paycheck for over twenty years from The Washington Post. I guess that’s really all you need to know.

Inclosing, for your viewing pleasure, I’d like to suggest a few presidential library designs for some of our distinguished past presidents.

Liberals are the new Nazis! “Sieg Heil,” ABC News!!!

There were Nazis, then neo-Nazis, and now we have “democrat Nazism.”

You heard that term here first!

In the words of Ricky Bobby, from the movie “Talladega Nights:”

“That there is trademarked, not to be used without expressed written permission of Ricky Bobby, Inc.”

In this case, MrEricksonRules, LLC.

According to David Rutz of Fox News, “ABC News calls for ‘cleansing the movement’ of Trump supporters following the Capitol riots.”

“ABC News stealth-edited the piece, and changed it to ‘cleaning up.’”

“An ABC News article calling for the ‘cleansing’ of the movement of President Trump’s supporters was stealth-edited after critics questioned the charged word.”

‘“Even aside from impeachment and 25th Amendment talk, Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days,’ ABC’s Rick Klein and MaryAlice Parks wrote for ‘The Note’ on Thursday. ‘The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part. Cleansing the “movement” he commands, or getting rid of what he represents to so many Americans, is going to be something else.’”

“It now reads, ‘Cleaning up the movement he commands, or getting rid of what he represents to so many Americans, is going to be something else.’”

“Klein also shared the original phrase on Twitter before deleting it.”

“The term ‘cleansing’ drew criticism on the right, which viewed it as a violent term in a week where bipartisan outrage has erupted over the mob mayhem at the U.S. Capitol this week.”

‘“You may not like it, but it’s perfectly within Klein’s right to say everything he said,’ the Media Research Center’s Nick Kangadis wrote. ‘He can celebrate that Trump is leaving office all he wants. But it is the height of hypocrisy for those in the media to condemn others for violent acts that are dwarfed in comparison to the consistent violence of the far-left — one act doesn’t justify the other — and then go out and call for something like a ‘cleansing’ of people and think there’s nothing wrong with a statement like that.’”

Without a doubt, the capitol protest will be used as a vehicle to further attack Trump supporters and patriots in general.

Perhaps Klein and Parks would care to let us in on what their vision of “cleansing” might include?

The “playbooks” for “cleansing” are out there, and scattered throughout human history…, and they’re all ugly and evil.   

“Klein leads the network’s [ABC’s] political coverage and provides analysis across its platforms.”

“ABC,’ of course, stands for American Broadcasting Company. 

I propose a better choice would be DNBC!

I’ll let you figure that out.  

And, finally…, when are many other people going to wake up and start figuring this out as well?

Do African Americans think they’re going to be included in this grand scheme?

Do Hispanic Americans think they’re going to be included in this grand scheme?

Does any other group, other than white liberal elites, think they’re going to be included in this grand scheme?

I hate to break it to you, but you won’t be.

These other groups are just being used as a means to an end, and when their usefulness has reached an end, they’ll need to be “cleansed” or discarded too.

“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.

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.

The list of traitors is long and distinguished!

Yes, “distinguished” in that they are all infamous.

Benedict Arnold.

John Brennan.

James Clapper.

Robert Mueller.

Peter Strzok.

Lisa Page.

Barack Obama.

Joe Biden.

Hillary Clinton.

Sally Yates.

Andrew McCabe.

Loretta Lynch.

“Which of these things is not like the others?”

“Which of these things just doesn’t belong?”

“Can you tell which thing is not like the others, by the time I finish my song?”

I’m sorry, because this is actually a trick question.

The correct answer is “no one on the list doesn’t belong!”

They all belong, because they’re all treasonous vermin!

And they all had many accessories along the way as well.

Not mention the lying, complicit, fake news, liberal propaganda, mainstream media.   

Actually, a case could be made that Benedict Arnold “doesn’t belong,” because he was the only one who wasn’t involved in spying on the Trump campaign, spying on President Trump while in office, and attempting to undermine and overthrow a duly elected president.

They have disgraced their names, their families, and their country forever.

Shame on them all.

If there is any justice, they should all be brought to justice.

The CENSORING of America!

In recent days, we have seen Facebook and Twitter censoring articles critical of presidential candidate, Joe Biden, and his son, Hunter.

They claim these articles are “unverified,” and therefore should not be spread on social media.

Oh…, do you mean like the unverified Russian collusion reports which were shoved down our throats for over two years?!

For over two years…, night and day!!!

Seriously?!

And the people attempting to spread these reports are having their accounts censored, locked, blocked, or shutdown altogether!

Is this really happening in America?!

I feel like we are experiencing censorship you could expect to experience in Communist Russia or Communist China…, not in The United States of America. 

 I don’t recall Facebook and Twitter censoring ANY anti-Trump, Russian hoax, anonymous source, reports.

Facebook, Twitter, and the mainstream media have shown their hands here.

They are all undeniably co-conspirators and propaganda allies of the democrat party.

Undeniably and unabashedly.

Without question.

In a related article, according to Brian Flood of Fox News, “Ex-Facebook honcho Tim Kendall says Big Tech is a ‘threat to democracy,’ and calls for social media reform.”

‘“Media Angle’ is a column [for Fox News] offering perspectives on the media landscape from the newsmakers themselves.

‘“Moment’ CEO Tim Kendall is among the stars of the wildly popular Netflix documentary ‘The Social Dilemma,’ which tackles the negative impact social media and Big Tech can have on people — and the former Facebook executive feels Big Tech is a threat to democracy that could eventually lead to a civil war in America.” 

‘“Extreme outcomes are the logical end conclusion if there is no action on social media reform during the increasing destabilization of civil society,’ Kendall told Fox News.”

“The Social Dilemma” features several Silicon Valley insiders explaining the dark side of social media, with everyone from the co-inventor of Facebook’s ‘like’ button to high-powered executives weighing in.” 

“Kendall, who is a central figure in the film, was once the director of monetization at Facebook but now runs ‘Moment,’ a company dedicated to ‘fighting to reimagine the tech industry as one built for its users.’”

“MA: Big tech is called a ‘global assault on democracy’ in the film, and you say you’re concerned it could lead to a civil war. Why are these horrifying claims realistic?”  

“Kendall: The attention-based business model of social media companies is a threat to democracy. We as users are attracted to content that entertains us and reinforces our views. ‘Big Social,’ as I call it, knows this and presents information that will keep us coming back to their platforms. These corporate practices encourage online tribalism that exacerbates the societal division we see today amid unprecedented economic, climate, and public health turmoil.”

“I truly believe things will not get better until tech companies move away from creating exploitative products that drive conflict over conversation, division over unity, and misinformation over truth. Extreme outcomes are the logical end conclusion if there is no action on social media reform during the increasing destabilization of civil society.”  

“MA: A recent report showed the overwhelming majority of campaign contributions from employees at big tech firms went to Democratic candidates. Do conservatives have even more to fear than liberals and progressives?” 

I can answer that one! 

The real answer is a resounding “YES!”

“Kendall: We cannot allow the conversation around misinformation and social media addiction to become a partisan issue. Big Social does not care what content you are consuming, where you live, or what you believe so long as you are giving away your time to their platforms and helping drive up their advertising revenues.”

What do you mean, “We cannot allow the conversation around misinformation and social media addiction to become a partisan issue?”

It IS most definitely a “partisan issue.”

It IS an attack on conservatives by the liberals who control and run these social media companies. 

And “Big Social” absolutely does care about what “content you are consuming,” and they are intent on making sure they steer you on the “enlightened” and the “approved” liberal path.

“MA: What needs to happen to alleviate your concerns about social media’s impact on modern society?”   

“Kendall: I think there are three things that need to change. First, until the financial incentives are removed these companies will continue to operate by creating social media addicts of its users. Second, we need better regulation—no industry, including tech, should be in the position to regulate themselves. Third, we need innovation to help people take back their lives from their devices. This is in part why I started my company, ‘Moment,’ to develop tools that give control back to individuals.”

Okay…, so one and three won’t be happening anytime soon.

I’m not normally a big fan of government regulations, but in this case, we really have no other options. 

Discrimination calls for regulation!!!

‘“The Social Dilemma’ is now streaming on Netflix.”

Bias in the mainstream media?

If there was ever any question about bias in the mainstream media, the USA Today newspaper erased all doubt.  

According to Fox News, “USA Today apparently forgot about Vice President Mike Pence Wednesday night, when the newspaper tweeted a poll asking who won the vice presidential debate and listed only ‘Kamala Harris,’ ‘Joe Biden,’ ‘the pesky fly’ and ‘I didn’t watch’ as options.”

How you omit one of the two only participants in the debate is inexcusable, and demonstrates either USA Today’s complete incompetence, or their complete bias.

I’m going with “their complete bias,” although I feel we should not sell their incompetence short.

“The mistaken tweet was posted shortly after the end of the debate, which was moderated by USA Today’s Washington bureau chief Susan Page.”

This is the same Susan Page who repeatedly tried to cut Vice President Pence’s response times short, but then finding out that Kamala Harris ended up with over four and a half minutes more speaking time than Vice President Pence.

Funny who that works out, isn’t it?  

“Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, tweeted a image of the now-deleted poll and asked, ‘Think the media has an agenda? Mike Pence isn’t even listed as an option on their “poll.”’”

“The paper then replaced the initial poll with another version that listed Pence as an option instead of Biden.”

“USA Today then made light of the gaffe by tweeting a third poll asking, ‘Is this a corrected poll because USA TODAY messed up the first one?’”

Oh yeah, just a completely understandable “gaffe” on their part.

“USA Today did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”

Oh really?!

That’s odd!

“The ‘pesky fly’ option refers to the now-viral insect that landed on [Vice President] Pence’s head and stayed there for more than two minutes late in the proceedings.”
