    Robert Reich said that only dictators, strongmen and tyrants want to allow free speech. That is why people with more than two IQ points don’t trust liberals.

    I can just see Adolph Hitler, Stalin, Putin, Biden, Mao, and Obama saying “Gosh, what we need is for everyone to be able to say what they want!”

    I’d love to have an honest conversation with Liberal folks.

    But, it seems that the Liberals these days are too afraid of offending the Leftists who rule over them with an iron boot.

    If you think Conservatives are censored, the Left have got the Liberals censoring themselves. They don’t dare express opinions that aren’t approved by the craziest extremists you can imagine.

    Despite all their posturing, I’m convinced that there are Liberals out there who know what a woman is. But, the Leftists won’t let them talk.

    The cries of horror you now hear from the Left are nothing less than the death rattle of the Cancel Culture. They want your mouths to be closed while theirs are open 24/7, and they can’t stand the thought that anyone else’s voice will be heard. I hope as time goes on that Musk makes the algorithms of Twitter more transparent. Inquiring minds wish to know exactly how they used to work. For instance, some on the Right are reporting a sudden increase of followers since Monday. Were the algorithms designed to prevent certain people from having followers?

    I love the irony of this. The Right is incensed by social media enforcing their rules against spreading misinformation, inciting violence and hate speech. To them, that’s censorship – which speaks volumes about them. Meanwhile the right is using the power of the state to stop discussions on gender, sexuality, and American History. That also speaks volumes about the right.

    AND…they think Elon Musk is going to make all better. I have been watching Mr. Musk’s rise to fortune and I think their faith in him is premature, at best.

    And the lies keep on being exposed…

    Debra Heine at American Greatness reported on the newly uncovered information:

    The Democrats’ rebuttal to the bombshell GOP FISA memo in February of 2018 has aged very poorly.

    In their memo, the Intel Democrats—who had access to the classified FISA information at the time—falsely claimed that officials at the FBI and Justice Department “did not abuse the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) process, omit material information, or subvert this vital tool to spy on the Trump campaign.”

    The IG report, released in December by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, identified 17 separate errors and omissions with regard to all four FISA applications.

    The Schiff rebuttal also falsely claimed that the DOJ only made “narrow use” of information from Steele’s sources, and that the FBI had an “independent basis” for investigating Page’s motivations.-Gateway Pundit

    As scores of conservatives had their Twitter accounts reinstated following the takeover by Elon Musk, the television sitcom star and movie celebrity Tim Allen used three words Monday related to a federal investigation (or is it a coverup?) that were previously forbidden on the censor-practicing platform.

    “Hunter Biden laptop,” Allen included with his post that tweaked the Biden-supporting arm of the leftwing media as well as Hollywood elites and woke academics.-

    Look what can be shared now on Twitter..

    There is nothing but crippling devastation that can come from planting the seed in EVERY child’s mind that they were born in the wrong body, and that they need to “fix” how they were made.

    This is a recipe for lifelong depression & self-loathing.-@Outspoken_Sam

    Maybe now more parents and educators can work toward a more sensible approach to gender identity than indoctrinating ALL for the sake of SOME at appropriate ages. For educators and mental health professionals not too acknowledge how impressionable young children are is incomprehensible.

    There is much speculation about what Mr. Musk will do with Twitter, or what he can do. Time will tell. It’s an easy trap to fall into, as every politician will tell us what the future will be when/if the opposition gets its way, and the sky rarely truly falls.

    But…..many Americans have the feeling that the second amendment should have no restrictions, and many now believe that the first amendment should have none, either, chucking the idea that you can’t yell “fire” in a crowded theater.

    And if that is truly Mr. Musk’s belief, then Ms. Benson, as much as all the rest of us, should be far more concerned about those who will be running towards Twitter than those running away.

    Maybe now sensible people can spread the word that batteries do not make electricity – they store electricity produced elsewhere, primarily by coal, uranium, natural gas-powered plants or diesel-fueled generators.

    To say an EV is a zero-emission vehicle is not at all valid.

    To say that lithium mining is better for the ecology and will free the US from foreign dependency are both lies. The CCP doesn’t care about the ecology and will hold the world hostage once they become the #1 source.

    Maybe then more indoctrinated nonsensible people will be awakened and vote out global elitists who are hell bent on killing the oil, gas & coal industry so they can profit off of the ill conceived, price gouging green energy policies.

    Obama Keynotes Disinfo Conference Alongside Allies Linked to Fake News ScandalsSome of the speakers, including Obama, have themselves been accused of pushing false, politically divisive information, raising questions about their participation in a disinformation event.

    Obama was awarded the 2013 “Lie of the Year” for declaring, “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” in order to sell Obamacare to the American public. Rhodes, a national security adviser to Obama, admitted in 2016 that he manipulated journalists in order to push favorable but misleading stories in the media. Rhodes bragged about creating an “echo chamber” of reporters who amplified White House spin. Rhodes also said he “largely manufactured” a narrative about the timeline by which the Obama administration began negotiating with the Iranian government about its nuclear energy program.

    Two lesser-known panelists have been at the center of disinformation firestorms. Rashad Robinson, the president of the civil rights group Color of Change, repeatedly pushed the false claim that actor Jussie Smollett was the victim of an anti-gay, anti-black hate crime in Chicago in 2019. Robinson pushed the hoax even after evidence emerged that Smollett lied to police about the attack. Renee DiResta, a Stanford researcher moderating a session with Obama, advised a technology company that created fake Russian bots in order to influence Republican voters in the 2017 Alabama special election. DiResta told the Washington Post she knew the tech company was involved in the Alabama race, but she denied knowing about its deceptive tactics.- Chuck Ross Washington Free Beacon

    As far as the “Wind Energy” Biden is pushing… Bet you didn’t know, most of the parts for a wind turbine are built in Germany, it requires 60 gallons of oil to lubricant the turbine (where do you think that oil leaks when a seal bust ?? (On the ground)). The blades are made of a toxic fiberglass combination and are buried in landfills in Wyoming. Bet that’s safe for ground water….NO IT’S NOT. The turbine has to spin continually for 7 plus years just to replace the energy it took to manufacture the turbine…..It has to run continually for 50 years just to pay for the cost to manufacture and install the turbine….which is approximately $2 million dollars per turbine.Let’s use common sense & WISDOM-Letitia Lynch

    Waiting for this one to show up on Twitter…

    USAID has long been the lifeblood of scum like Pathfinder and related organizations who survive off of the opaque and corrupt federal grants process. This grant is only one part of millions in dollars in “COVID” response that the federal government operationalized to force a population control agenda down the throats of developing countries. Despite the Trump Administration’s broad strides to strip federal funding from leftist organizations, especially for global abortion funding, continual undermining from nefarious personnel and the coordination of the Administrative State kept the door open to millions in grants paid out to ambiguous entities like Pathfinder, The Population Council, Intrahealth International, JSI, and other population control operatives. By the end of 2020, USAID had pledged over $1.3 billion in global COVID-Relief programs alone, a number that has skyrocketed to over $9 billion with the Biden regime’s expanded use of USAID.It was through a grant that the U.S. became the biggest stakeholder in the noxious gain-of-function research at the center of the Wuhan Virology Lab. It was through a grant that the NIH operationalized a baby organ and tissue pipeline at the University of Pittsburgh for unfounded scientific “progress.” And it was through grants that the Department of Education and DOJ sent billions to “justice nonprofits” and “community organizers” who led left-wing protests on climate, immigration, and race — the same groups responsible for deploying Black Lives Matter rioters to burn down American cities in the summer of 2020.The agenda enabling this monstrous weapon to thrive off of the love-fest between federal bureaucrats and globalist elite actors is one the American people reject. A reckoning is coming — and it starts with exposing their hand.

    If you can’t beat them, own them. That’s at the heart of Elon Musk’s daring takeover of Twitter. Revolver has correctly called Twitter’s fight with the South African industrialist “the battle of the century,” while noting the many challenges facing Musk’s attempts to change the company’s censorship program. During his April 12 monologue, Tucker Carlson floated the idea of “the pro-free speech public” buying Twitter shares and giving their proxy votes to Musk.What if red states, and not just Republican voters, accepted Tucker’s invitation and followed the Musk model? The Florida Retirement System Pension Plan is sitting on $202 billion in assets. Texas manages another $35 billion on behalf of State employees and retirees. Ohio, Alabama, and South Carolina, states President Trump carried handily in 2020, all have a combined $180 billion in additional assets. These retirement systems are already invested in public company stocks to the tune of billions of dollars. Twitter’s entire market capitalization of $31 billion represents around seven percent of the combined assets of these states.Imagine a red-state-owned Twitter. With the backing of whole states, Musk’s efforts to bring free speech back to Twitter would still have been a challenge, but not as difficult of one. And why stop at Twitter at all? There are plenty of other companies worth a look as well. Before Musk’s successful buyout went through, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis told reporters the state was exploring ways to hold Twitter’s Board of Directors accountable for “breaching their fiduciary duty” by trying to block the purchase.DeSantis’ threat shouldn’t be forgotten just because Musk’s purchase campaign succeeded. Instead, it should be the beginning of red state shareholder activism.
