Trump Campaign Banned From EMAILING Supporters After Being Suspended By Mail Service Provider
By Cassandra Fairbanks
Published January 8, 2021 at 9:57pm
3012 Comments

The Trump campaign is now blocked from emailing their millions of supporters after being suspended by their email service provider.
The suspension comes shortly after President Donald Trump and his campaign were permanently banned from Twitter.

The email service, Campaign Monitor, confirmed the suspension of the account to Financial Times’ Dave Lee.

The Nationalist Review reports “the move effectively cuts off communication between his team and his core supporters. What is not clear however, is what other services have banned his team. The Trump campaign sends out a massive amount of emails—33 in January so far. But, it has been 48 hours since the campaign has reached out to its supporters via email, prompting most journalists to speculate that other providers have shut off access as well.”​

CNN Parties Over Twitter’s ‘Amazing’ Choice to Ban Trump: He’s ‘Been Kneecapped!’

Mark it down, NewsBusters readers: January 8, 2021 will go down as one of the greatest days in the lives of more than a few CNN charlatans due to the massive, unprecedented crackdown on American free speech, including Twitter’s permanent banning of President Trump.
On CNN’s Situation Room, the mood was euphoric as they celebrated the “amazing situation” and “historic moment” of Twitter having “kneecapped” Trump before our very eyes, even though it was many years later for these censorship fiends.
Chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta delivered the news, feigning concern for what Trump will do now and how it’ll affect his “state of mind” considering “he’s been unstable.”
Acosta boasted that, if Trump were to send out a video message, the White House would have to rely on the media even though they’re “their least favorite people in the world.”
“So, the President has been knee capped by Twitter. He can no longer use this account to do all of the various and sundry things that he does on a regular basis. He is, for all intents and purposes, banned at the moment from this very powerful social media platform, Wolf,”
a giddy Acosta added.
Reliable Sources host and censorship-loving Brian Stelter was ebullient, gushing to host Wolf Blitzer about this “moment in Silicon Valley history, as well as a moment in political history and this has significance all around the world.”




Stelter continued to explode with glee (click “expand”):
ut this is an historic moment where Twitter has stepped in and said no, that world leader, the United States President, is too dangerous to use our platform. It is an astonishing thing that technology companies like Twitter and Facebook feel they have to protect the public from the American President, they have to take away his keys because they don't trust him to get behind the wheel.
It does speak to the power of technology companies and I think many Trump supporters will hear about this and say this just proves that Trump is being censored, he's being punished, he's being hurt by Silicon Valley, but censorship is not the right word here, this is not about the First Amendment. The First Amendment is about your relationship with the government, not your relationship with a private technology company. And these social media companies have been under pressure from many liberals, from Trump critics, from including their own employees to take action. Hundreds of Twitter employees signed a letter saying they want Trump banned and now he's banned.

Expand
Moments later, he bragged that his friends at Twitter took such a “remarkable action” to which Blitzer lamented that “a lot of people think these platforms should have been done this a long time ago, given what the President was out there promoting.”
Seeing as how he has such a hatred for people that disagree with him that he’ll fight to impugn their right to speak, Stelter fretted that “Twitter and Facebook have been very afraid to cross paths with this President...when, in any other case, he would have been suspended years ago.”
In response, Blitzer fawned: “It's an amazing, amazing situation when you think big picture about what's going on.”
Acosta, Blitzer, and Stelter continued to happily bludgeon the President. Acosta warned that Trump’s “reaction will be fierce, because this is a President who has been complaining about what he deems to be social media discrimination for some time.”



Cheering the fact that Twitter’s “a private company,” Acosta went postal on Twitter for having allowed him to “spread lies and fear and hatred over the last four years” and that such a purging “will be applaud[ed]...on both sides of the political spectrum” because Trump “has broken the rules of decent society.”
In contrast, Acosta and his network will almost certainly refuse to say a word about whether there should be bans doled out to Chinese accounts denying their modern-day concentration camps or Iranian handles spewing anti-Semitic rhetoric. Remember the left’s own rules where silence symbolizes approval!
Stelter also had more to say, swooning over Apple’s threats to remove Parler from its App Store and griping Twitter didn’t listen to him sooner. For Blitzer’s part, he approvingly replied how “incredible” this news was (click “expand”):
STELTER: But never has a world leader been deplatformed like this. I’m talking Third World countries, dictatorships. We don’t see this happen from these platforms. We got more detail from Twitter, Wolf. I’m going to read here. It says, in determining whether to ban Trump’s permanently, Twitter took into account statements he made off-platform, meaning they weren’t just judging his tweets. They were judging his behavior at the Save America march and other statements he’s made. Twitter also saying we need all social platforms to do this more proactively. Often what is planned in a semi private space has bearing on the open web. So, Twitter is sending a message to other technology companies saying, we all, all of these companies, that have platforms on the internet, have to step up their performance and judge content more seriously. By the way, earlier today, Apple said that it may take action against Parler. Parler is that new social media network for far-right Trump supporters. That’s been speculation that Trump will just move over to that site instead. Apple is threatening to remove Parler from its App Store because of content moderation concerns. So, look, it’s the fourth year, all of this probably should have happened sooner. But these technology companies are trying to show some responsibility in the very last days of the Trump administration.
BLITZER: It really is incredible.​

ABC, CBS Reporters Delete Hot Tweets -- One on 'Cleansing' and One on DeVos Quitting

Two network reporters got in hot water on Twitter for tweets they posted – and then deleted – on Thursday. ABC News political director Rick Klein drew outrage for suggesting the conservative movement needed to be ahem, “cleansed.”
“Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days. The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part,” Klein wrote in a since-deleted post on Twitter. “Cleansing the movement he commands is going to be something else.”
“Cleansing” was the word that caused the tweet’s deletion, since it echoes the term “ethnic cleansing,” defined as the “mass expulsion or killing of members of an unwanted ethnic or religious group in a society.”

Klein’s online article uses the term “cleaning up” now:
Even aside from impeachment and 25th Amendment talk, Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days. The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part.
Cleaning up the movement he commands, or getting rid of what he represents to so many Americans, is going to be something else.​
Then Ed O’Keefe, the CBS man on the Biden beat, couldn’t help a little Democratic fanboy-ing for Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. After the news broke that Education Secretary Betsy DeVos was resigning over the Capitol riots, Whitmer mocked her in a tweet, and O’Keefe retweeted it, adding two flame emojis for her hot take:

This has the sweet smell of Mark Leibovich somehow, the New York Times reporter who gushed to Obama strategist David Axelrod after he mocked Mitt Romney on Twitter in 2012: "You ate your Tweeties today, Axe. Impressed!"
PS: O'Keefe's CBS colleague Grace Segers went on a weird mask-shaming thread. This isn't deleted. "Congressman Markwayne Mullin was one of the lawmakers who bravely helped barricade the doors to the House chamber. But according to video obtained by @PunchbowlNews, he was not wearing a mask, and even appeared to decline one when another lawmaker was handing them out."

You think the cancel culture is bad now? Censorship on social media is just the dress rehearsal for the real deal coming up after the 20th when their apparatchiks are running things. They have already been bought and paid for.

Big Tech Launches Massive Coordinated Cyber Attack on 74,000,000 Trump Voters — GOP SILENT

Big tech has launched an unprecedented and coordinated cyber attack on President Donald Trump and his 74,000,000 voters.
As this was happening — the GOP was dead silent.
Advertisement - story continues below

On Friday, Twitter permanently banned hundreds, if not thousands, of Trump supporters and prominent allies — before banning the president himself. Nearly every account that helped to promote the Stop the Steal rallies or challenge the election results were banned, including Ali Alexander, Michael Coudrey, Gen. Mike Flynn, Sidney Powell, and Lin Wood. Countless smaller accounts that supported the president were also getting suspended in a seemingly constant rate.
The same has been happening over on Facebook and Instagram.
TRENDING: Trump Campaign Banned From EMAILING Supporters After Being Suspended By Mail Service Provider
At the same time, Parler was warned by both the Apple and Google stores that if they did not impose moderation on their free speech platform within 24 hours they would be banned entirely.
“We have received numerous complaints regarding objectionable content in your Parler service, accusations that the Parler app was used to plan, coordinate, and facilitate the illegal activities” at the US Capitol on 6 January, Apple wrote in an email to Parler executives. “The app also appears to continue to be used to plan and facilitate yet further illegal and dangerous activities.”​

These same companies showed absolutely no concern when Black Lives Matter domestic terrorists were plotting their next attacks on their platforms, often with the endorsement of Democrat politicians.
Parler Chief Executive John Matze responded to the threat by posting; “Apparently they believe Parler is responsible for ALL user generated content on Parler. By the same logic, Apple must be responsible for ALL actions taken by their phones. Every car bomb, every illegal cell phone conversation, every illegal crime committed on an iPhone, Apple must also be responsible for.”
By 7 p.m. EST, it was reported that President Trump had officially joined Parler. It is currently unclear if big tech pulled the trigger early, if the site crashed from the rush of new users hoping to hear from the president, or if it was something more sinister.
By 7:46, Parler was banned from the Google Play store.
You will still be able to access Parler from your computer or browser.

Buckle up. They want you silenced.

Newspaper Owner Who Posted Support for Capitol Insurrection Quits Ohio Arts Council Board
The Statehouse News Bureau | By Karen Kasler
Published January 8, 2021 at 2:33 PM EST

OAC.OHIO.GOV
Ohio Arts Council Executive Director Donna Collins (left) with OAC Board Member Susan Allan Block, at an OAC awards ceremony in 2017.
A member of the board of the state agency that oversees funding for the arts has resigned after an inflammatory Facebook post in which she showed support for the insurrection at the US Capitol Wednesday and used a slur to describe Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris.


Susan Allan Block, the owner of the Toledo Blade and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, wrote that Trump supporters won’t unite behind President Elect Joe Biden, who she baselessly referred to as illegitimate, and used a derogatory slur for Vice President Elect Kamala Harris.

Block was renamed to the Ohio Arts Council board in 2019 by Gov. Mike DeWine, after being appointed by former Gov. John Kasich in 2016. (Interestingly, she was reappointed at the same time DeWine appointed Juan Cespedes, who's pleaded guilty in the $61 million federal bribery scandal around the nuclear bailout law.)

CREDIT SUSAN ALLAN BLOCK'S FACEBOOK POST
Jai Chabria was Kasich’s head of state personnel, and says resignation was the quickest course of action.
“Unless a member commits an ethics violation, and then they can be removed with advice and consent of the Senate, it is very difficult to remove a member of a board or commission of the state," Chabria said.
Block’s term was set to expire in 2024.
In a letter obtained by the Statehouse News Bureau, Block said she’d been asked by DeWine to resign, blamed what she called cancel culture, referred to DeWine as a Republican in quotes and suggested his COVID policies could cost him re-election.
The Ohio Arts Council's executive director Donna Collins said in a statement: "As I shared yesterday, agency staff does not comment on the personal opinions of its sitting board members. However, Susan is no longer on the board, so let me now say this."
"Our agency does not condone or endorse these inflammatory opinions in any way, and we will continue to work in alignment with our shared values of diversity, equity, and inclusivity."

Donald Trump Block Shows Twitter 'Must Not Like Democracy,' Says Parler CEO John Matze

Heavy, wet snow headed for the southern US
Donald Trump Block Shows Twitter 'Must Not Like Democracy,' Says Parler CEO John Matze





1610207772241.png

The CEO of Parler, a social media platform favored by conservatives, has said Twitter's blocking of Donald Trump suggests it "must not like democracy."
© Al Drago/Getty President Donald Trump departs on the South Lawn of the White House, on December 12, 2020 in Washington, DC.
John Matze—who co-founded the website in 2018—made the comment on Thursday in response to the president's daughter, Tiffany Trump, who shared a statement released by her father that pledged an "orderly transition" to Joe Biden later this month.
Trump's statement was issued on Thursday via the White House communications chief Dan Scavino as the president was facing a 12-hour Twitter block for policy-breaking posts made as his supporters stormed the Capitol Building on Wednesday.
"What ever happened to freedom of speech?" Tiffany Trump wrote on Parler, attracting thousands of comments and shares, including from Matze, who has repeatedly pitched his platform as a "free speech" alternative to mainstream social networks.
"You won't find it on the Twitters with all those bird brains in charge," Matze replied to the president's daughter in a comment, adding: "They are not a platform but a publisher. They don't want free speech and as a byproduct they must not like democracy... we must liberate ourselves from their manipulation and dystopian tactics of control."



It was the latest criticism against his more-established rival. Matze said earlier this week the decision to block Trump had been made by "cowardly authoritarians."
The president's Facebook and Twitter accounts were each blocked on Wednesday after he used them to post false claims of election fraud and publish a video message that described the rioters as "special" and included the phrase "we love you."
The video was pulled from Twitter, Facebook and YouTube as the Capitol Building siege continued. Trump's Twitter was restored on Thursday following a 12-hour timeout, but the site warned that future violations would result in a permanent suspension.
This means that the account of @realDonaldTrump will be locked for 12 hours following the removal of these Tweets. If the Tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked.
— Twitter Safety (@TwitterSafety) January 7, 2021​
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Trump's page was blocked "indefinitely," or for at "least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete."
Facing political pressure and the threat of another impeachment, Trump returned to his Twitter on Thursday and posted a scripted video that called the Capitol attack "heinous" and said that the people responsible "do not represent" the country.
Despite multiple family members being active on Parler, President Trump himself does not appear to have created an account on the platform at the time of writing.
Matze said in a separate comment on Thursday that America is "already lost" if speech has to be restricted or censored in order to keep the country safe.
He wrote: "If one man's voice is a threat to our nation but his holding of the presidential office is not, then it is apparent the powers of the presidency are less powerful than a single voice. Why should any of us settle [for] giving up our rights to free speech?"

Why ban of @realDonaldTrump proves Twitter not ‘just a platform’

Muzzled on Twitter, Trump rails against the platform the old fashioned way
So Twitter has “permanently banned” President Donald Trump’s account.
While this will please Democrats, and perhaps lessen the (justifiable) heat the company is taking from regulators, it just proves again that Twitter’s claims that it is “just a platform” are hogwash.
Some of Trump’s tweets were untrue and incendiary, but so are the Ayatollah Khamenei’s. His account is still up. The difference is Twitter is run by American liberals, who only really police one type of person, of one political persuasion.
It’s a little ridiculous that what finally did Trump in was tweeting that he wouldn’t be attending Joe Biden’s inauguration. Twitter twisted that to mean that he still won’t accept the results of the election — which just shows they were looking for an excuse. Rather than let the readers judge, they pulled the plug.
This paper has a bit of history with Twitter’s bias, seeing as they shut us down over a true Hunter Biden story. That incident proved that they “fact check” stories critical of Democrats far more aggressively than they do for Republicans, just as they police conservatives far more than liberals.
If Twitter was a private publisher, this would be annoying but unavoidable. But it isn’t. It’s a “platform” that, thanks to Section 230, faces no responsibility for what is tweeted. Twitter gets to censor whomever it likes, but throws up its hands at hate speech and libel with a “not our problem!”
This is untenable. Either Section 230 needs to be repealed, and Twitter must responsibly police who it hosts, or Twitter needs to step back and let the public decide what is acceptable or not.

He better get real.

This is the time to seize control of the media. AT THE VERY LEAST, SHUT DOWN FACEF-CK and TWATTER. For their obvious crimes, celebrating violence and calling for murders.

Send Rangers in, ARREST that slime with the ratty beard and the autistic...and cut the communications. Just for the hell of it, seize everyone in the buildings. Military detention.

Gov. Nuisance objects? TAKE HIM OUT. This is the time to show these spoiled punks what war is REALLY like.

The Biggest Gun Forum On The Planet Was Just Kicked Off The Internet Without Explanation

JANUARY 12, 2021 By Jordan Davidson
AR15.com, the biggest gun forum in the world, was deplatformed on Monday by web hosting company GoDaddy.
“ARFCOM IS DOWN. We’ve been booted from GoDaddy and are looking for an alternative solution,” the site announced Monday afternoon on Twitter.



The swift termination by internet host GoDaddy forced AR15.com’s leadership to think on their feet and quickly create a temporary URL so “freedom lovers and firearm enthusiasts” could continue to access the information and resources on the site.
Instead of offering specifics about kicking the gun site off the internet, GoDaddy merely claimed that AR15.com violated its terms of service, which resulted in instant termination.
“On Monday, January 11, 2021, I received notice from our site registrar that AR15.com had violated their terms of service and that AR15.com would be shut down immediately,” President and Co-Founder of the gun site Juan Avila told The Federalist in a statement. “The registrar’s decision to de-platform AR15.com was final and no method to appeal was offered.”
“It remains unclear specifically what content allegedly violated the registrar’s terms of service,” he added.
When asked by The Federalist about the decision to remove AR15.com, GoDaddy claimed that the site “both promotes and encourages violence,” but did not offer any specific examples. Instead, they offered AR15.com 24 hours to relocate its business.
The decision from GoDaddy follows of series of bans and contract terminations by big tech companies such as Amazon, Google, Apple, Twitter, and Facebook targeting conservatives and supporters of President Donald Trump. In addition to using their acquired power to ban and distance themselves from the president and his supporters, many have also engaged in what some have labeled anti-competitive behavior, encouraging and pushing each other to nuke alternative sites such as Parler.
Despite the abrupt change in AR15.com’s site domain and traffic, Avila said that AR15.com already found “a new, First Amendment-friendly site registrar” that will accommodate the forum during its transition, which may take a few days.

Harvard removes GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik from advisory board as part of purge. Here’s her response.
January 12, 2021 | Jon Dougherty | Print Article


CHECK OUT BizPacReview on Parler!

New York Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik was removed from a politics advisory board at Harvard University over claims of voting irregularities in the 2020 presidential election.
“Over the past several days, Mark Gearan and I have spent a good deal of time considering the role at the Institute of Politics of our colleague Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, whom I have included in this message,” Dean Douglas Elmendorf wrote to the Senior Advisory Committee of the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School, which Gearan heads.

“Mark and I have read public materials, listened to students and alumni, and consulted with colleagues at Harvard on this important matter,” Elmendorf continued.
“Following this consideration, I spoke with Elise and asked her to step aside from the Senior Advisory Committee. My request was not about political parties, political ideology, or her choice of candidate for president,” he wrote.
“Rather, in my assessment, Elise has made public assertions about voter fraud in November’s presidential election that have no basis in evidence, and she has made public statements about court actions related to the election that are incorrect,” wrote Elmendorf. “Moreover, these assertions and statements do not reflect policy disagreements but bear on the foundations of the electoral process through which this country’s leaders are chosen.

“I made this request to Elise mindful of her important contributions to the crucial mission of the Institute of Politics over a long period, beginning with her role as a student leader (she was in the class of 2006) and continuing to her mentoring students and strengthening the IOP’s programming in many ways. I know that we are grateful for her long and committed service,” he noted further.
“In my conversation with Elise, she declined to step aside, and I told her that I would therefore remove her from the IOP’s Senior Advisory Committee at this time,” Elmendorf said.
Last week, Stefanik joined scores of other House Republicans in objecting to slates of electors from states where officials altered voting rules and procedures ahead of the Nov. 3 General Election. Stefanik and others have said they believe those changes were unconstitutional because they were not made by state legislatures and appeared to violate existing state election laws.
Nevertheless, her objection led more than 750 Harvard students and alumni to petition for her removal from the board.

In response, the New York Republican blasted the decision, saying that the board now consists “only of Joe Biden voters.”
“As a conservative Republican, it is a rite of passage and badge of honor to join the long line of leaders who have been boycotted, protested, and canceled by colleges and universities across America,” Stefanik said in a statement.
“The decision by Harvard’s administration to cower and cave to the woke Left will continue to erode diversity of thought, public discourse, and ultimately the student experience,” she continued. “The Ivory Tower’s march toward a monoculture of like-minded, intolerant liberal views demonstrates the sneering disdain for everyday Americans and will instill a culture of fear for students who will understand that a conservative viewpoint will not be tolerated.”
“I relish the opportunity to stand up for freedom of speech and freedom of thought on college campuses across America,” she added. “Congratulations Harvard, the entire Board of the Institute of Politics now consists only of Joe Biden voters — how reflective of America.”

Well-Respected Senior GOP Staffer Resigns, Condemns Colleagues After Capitol Hill Riots

A senior GOP staffer resigned due to Republicans’ support of President Donald Trump’s calls to overturn the election results, Politico reported Tuesday.

Jason Schmid was a senior staffer on the House Armed Services Committee and was well-liked by those he worked with, CNN reported. Schmid said the rioters who descended on the Capitol building last week were and are still “domestic enemies of the Constitution of the United States,” according to a letter to House Ranking member Republican Alabama Rep. Mike Rogers and committee members, which Politico obtained.
The former staffer said he was resigning due to GOP House committee members prioritizing “electoral politics” before the country, according to his letter.
“A poisonous lie that the election was illegitimate and should be overturned inspired so called ‘patriots’ to share common cause with white supremacists, neo-Nazis and conspiracy theorists to attack the seat of American government,” Schmid’s letter said.


Schmid’s letter was directed at 13 members of the committee who had objected to the Electoral College’s certification of the election results, Politico reported.
Rioters descended on the Capitol building last week during a march in protest against the certification of the Electoral College’s certification of the election results, multiple sources said. (RELATED: Rioters Breach Pelosi’s Office)

“The decision to vote to set aside legitimate electors harmed the ability of every service member, intelligence officer, and diplomat to defend the nation and advance American interests,” Schmid said in his letter.
Regardless of the motivations behind the vote, these members bear the consequences that the men and women in harm’s way will face for many years to come,” Schmid’s letter said.

Schmid wrote that it’s probable foreign intelligence services would “capitalize on the crisis” of the riot, saying it would cost Americans.
“Congressional enablers of this mob have made future foreign conflict more likely, not less,” Schmid’s letter said.
Schmid urged his former colleagues to act “in the accounting of this horrible chapter in our history” and said it was “disturbing” that armed force members participated in the riots, according to the letter.

Another one bites the dust.

Frank Beckman WJR760 Radio 9-12 in Detroit. He was with WJR for 48 years but still in his 60's. He was the lead in for Rush.
Great guy to listen to and asked some great questions in a way that was polite but put them on the spot.
Monday he told a caller he was arguing with to call back in a few months.
Today he announced his retirement end of March.
But he is staying on and doing some special stuff.

Any conservative local radio hosts get the "talk" in other areas?

I thought Paul W. Smith had that time slot.

Smith had filled in for Rush a few times, also.

But I'm far from Detroit now, and with podcasts, it doesn't make much sense to seek out radio programming.

WJR going Woke? I expect that conservative Detroiters are a vanishing breed...and likely, talk radio in general, also.

Okay.

Odd that he got moved up. He was billed as their home-grown star, for years...

Back before Internet streaming was a thing, I'd listen to WJR a lot. I could get it when I lived in Cleveland and also in parts of Buffalo...I lived near the lakefront, clear sightline to Detroit over the water. Limbaugh in Afternoons, although he had Cleveland and Buffalo affiliates...and then, late at night, David Newman.

Shame what happened to him...a series of strokes...he wanted to return, and his listeners missed him, but it didn't happen. It's been 20 years, now...probably he's gone, and it's a shame that station management didn't give closure.

Is anyone able to listen to the radio?

In Michigan a great host "retired". He did have some heated exchanges with callers. But it seemed quick and at the same time was when this cancel thing started. He is on air until end of March.

Today Michigan has the Flint water crises where they pressed crap charges against the last governor. Almost seemed like it was designed for headlines. Fake news to distract the elephant in the room. Then all the callers are all riled up but the few that are keeping their eyes on the ball and tried to talk about fake votes, election fraud etc... the caller was cut short or he would ask a question designed to turn the topic..

Oklahoma Senator James Lankford Apologizes To Black Constituents For Challenging Electoral Votes

Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Lankford apologized to his black constituents for challenging President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, saying that he failed to recognize that his actions casted “doubt on the validity of votes” in majority black cities like Milwaukee, Detroit and Philadelphia.

Lankford, who originally joined a group of senators led by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz that said they would object to Biden’s victory unless Congress launched a commission to audit the results, ultimately withdrew his objection after being trapped in the Capitol during the riot on Jan. 6.
“My action of asking for more election information caused a firestorm of suspicion among many of my friends, particularly in Black communities around the state,” Lankford wrote, Tulsa World first reported.
“I can assure you, my intent to give a voice to Oklahomans who had questions was never also an intent to diminish the voice of any Black American,” he added. “I should have recognized how what I said and what I did could be interpreted by many of you. I deeply regret my blindness to that perception, and for that I’m sorry.”

Several Republicans, including President Donald Trump and his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, have baselessly alleged that voter fraud in cities like Milwaukee, Detroit, Philadelphia and Atlanta swung the states to Biden, despite the fact that courts and state officials have found no evidence of widespread voter fraud.
Cruz and Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley, the two senators who led objections to Arizona and Pennsylvania’s elections, respectively, have faced massive backlash. Local newspapers in their states have called on them to resign, and Hawley’s cooperation led publisher Simon and Schuster to cancel his upcoming book, a move that Hawley described as “Orwellian.”

Just off the phone with a friend and his wife. She is obsessed with her credit score. It was 850. Checks it every day.
They subscribed to the Epoch times, check out some conservative web sites & bought some Trump stuff on line.

Her credit score is dropping from 5-15 points a day down to 800 area. She is pissed off and when she called they told her to call Equifax.

She thinks they are trying to cancel her.

Maybe it's time to rethink a "credit score."

Yes, I know in some situations it's important. But this shows, first, the danger in elective display of your political sentiments in the midst of a morphing tyranny...that is, not taking a stand with the flag, but buying discretionary items with a political flavor, and using a CREDIT CARD, a tracking device, to do it. Or at the very least, buy one of those gift cards to pay for such things.

I owe nothing, and I buy little online. What I do charge, is mostly gasoline, and I don't use much. A tank every three weeks or so. Bill is paid immediately, often before billing, even. Still, my credit score is about 780.

The only thing I can see needing a credit score for, is an anticipated move in the next year or so. Frankly, the online smear merchants, like MyLife, are going to be a bigger problem...they have data on me that just isn't true, and won't alter it. But that's another issue.

Other than rental contracts, though, I simply won't worry about credit scores. Cash on the barrelhead, now till my end.

My credit scores is...ummm...actually I've no damn idea. I either have the funds for something, or I don't buy it. If everyone did the same, this bs economic system would collapse within months. Stop generating debt people.
