NOT SO FAST, BIDEN: The Street Doesn’t Buy It

This article was contributed by Future Money Trends. 

Last week’s storming of the Capitol was a turning point in many regards, but what we want to focus on is what it signifies to the global community.

Since the end of WW2, America has represented democracy. Its power and prestige, in terms of its ability to invade other countries in the name of freedom and democracy, hasn’t been challenged much.

There have always been detractors to the wars in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and others, but no Western World leader or emerging nation has ever publicly and formally come out in defiance of the American strategy of policing the world.

We believe that last week’s Capitol Hill incident will greatly damage any future attempts of U.S. diplomacy to pressure countries to embrace “Americanism” since they’ll strike back, saying that America’s democracy is, in itself, broken.

How can the U.S. lecture other countries when it can’t even bring the message of democracy to its own people? We believe this is the ramification of that event, which differs from the riots, looting, and other issues that we saw transpire in 2020 that did not have the same ripple effect.

This is not a political opinion of ours or our way of justifying the riots, but rather an observation of how America’s allies and enemies can use the Capitol Hill incident to their advantage – like China.

BIDEN’S PLAN WON’T FLY: OBSTACLES ON THE WAY

We listened to Joe Biden’s speech and what we heard is this:

  1. Taxes Will Be Higher: You will see a trend of “paying your fair share” becoming more prevalent in the rhetoric, even though most billionaires already pay between 37% and 50% of their earned income to the federal government and their respective states.

Corporate taxes will rise and any tax loopholes will be harder to strategize. We’re pretty sure that in order to rebuild America’s infrastructure in the coming years, the administration will put pressure on high earners to be “responsible” and pay more!

  1. Government-Created Jobs: It’s looking more and more like America is taking a centralized approach to job creation.

Because capitalism and global competitive forces drove corporations to outsource and search for human resources in cheap labor pools in the Far East, China, South America, and Eastern Europe, the American worker has been left in the dust.

They haven’t evolved and adapted to this change, for the most part, so the government will fill that vacuum for millions of people who haven’t been able to figure out how to deliver value in the 21st-century American economy.

Infrastructure jobs will be the norm.

  1. Biden Won’t Sail in Smooth Seas: Not everyone is convinced that the solution to the so-called broken capitalistic system is more government directive. Most who share the opinion that there’s a problem in America believe that the problem is too much government as it is.

It looks like the government doesn’t want to wait for the private sector to figure it out on its own. We expect unemployment levels to shrink, of course, since the government will find jobs for millions of people, but America will look more like China than itself.

Big changes are ahead and we don’t like them, to be honest.

America has turned a page and its new book might be increased centralization.

“Enforcement” Outnumbers Protestors At The Capitol Before Inaguration

Cops outnumber protestors at the nation’s capitol in advance of the inauguration on Wednesday.  There is also allegedly a big show of force at many of the state’s capitols.

State capitols across the United States have been “reinforced” against a possible wave of pro-Trump armed protests after the FBI warned of “armed groups” preparing to descend on them. However, it’s become obvious that the situation on the ground tells a different story.

The massive number of military personnel and their presence are ominous and we are obviously not being told the entire truth.  There’s no need to outnumber the protestors to this extent unless there’s something else going on and it’s the cover story. Are people actually still buying the official narrative this time?

-UPDATED- Questions About The Chaos At The Capitol That Desperately Need To Be Answered

The Capitol Hill riot, which saw an unruly group of pro-Trump protesters run amuck in the U.S. Capitol on January 6th, has been the current springboard talking point to bring in a level of military never seen before.  Politicians (liars in suits aka, the ruling class) are warning of an undercurrent of right-wing “extremism” and “domestic terrorism across the country. Journalists and liberal pundits continue to openly talk of the need to “cleanse” the nation of “Trumpism,” using rhetoric not seen since the days of WWII.

Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday will take place in a locked-down Washington, DC, behind unprecedented security, including 20,000 National Guardsmen.  Some reports say there’s more military than that, however.

If this was simply to “arrest the deep state,” there wouldn’t be the need for this mass of troops. So what’s really going on? All I have, honestly, are speculations. There’s no evidence to back up anything yet, but my instincts say this is a cover story for something else much bigger and we all need to be prepared. Whatever is going on is preplanned. They brought in the military early enough that this should be obvious to people.

I would spend the day grabbing some “lead” if you can find any and maybe a few extra pounds of dried beans, and a case of water just in case.  Make any last-minute preparations and know that you did your best to ensure your family will be safe. Don’t succumb to fear, as we know these elitists and the ruling class feed off of the terrified masses. Continue to do the right thing to others, help people if you can, be kind (many may need this in the coming weeks), and most of all, stay away from ALL of the state capitols!

Keep your eyes and ears open. Be alert and aware and stay prepared. Gray-man skills could come in handy right now too.

Biden administration immigration Intelwars Joe Biden Migrant caravan nbc news

Report: Top Biden official tells migrant caravan they won’t get into US — at least not at first

An incoming Biden administration official has a message for the migrant caravan storming its way north through Central America to the United States: Don’t come — at least not yet.

What’s the background?

President-elect Joe Biden has promised to rescind much of President Donald Trump’s immigration policy and executive orders, which the Trump administration implemented to slow the flow of immigrants seeking refuge in the U.S.

As TheBlaze reported, the latest caravan — which is at least 8,000 migrants strong — received that message as meaning the Biden administration would welcome them with open arms.

In fact, migrant rights group Pueblo Sin Fronteras issued a statement on behalf of the caravan indicating the migrants expect Biden to honor his “commitments.”

“We recognize the importance of the incoming Government of the United States having shown a strong commitment to migrants and asylum seekers, which presents an opportunity for the governments of Mexico and Central America to develop policies and a migration management that respect and promote the human rights of the population in mobility,” the statement said, Fox News reported. “We will advocate that the Biden government honors its commitments.”

What did the Biden official say?

A senior Biden transition official told NBC News the perception that Biden will allow migrants to unilaterally enter to the U.S. once they reach the border is false.

The official explained that migrants already at the border who have been awaiting processing will be a priority for the new administration.

More from NBC News:

The official said migrants attempting to cross into the U.S. to claim asylum in the first few weeks of the new administration “need to understand they’re not going to be able to come into the United States immediately.” The official also emphasized that any immigration legislation proposed by the Biden administration will be for undocumented immigrants already living in the U.S., not those who are considering arriving now.

However, the official did not say the Biden administration would not help them — just not right now.

“There’s help on the way, but now is not the time to make the journey,” the official said.

“We have to provide a message that help and hope is on the way, but coming right now does not make sense for their own safety …while we put into place processes that they may be able to access in the future,” the official added.

Corporations do not consent Donald Trump government is slavery Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden left vs. right paradigm lie liars in suits Mitch McConnell no control no masters no slavery Precious Metals taxation is theft unity voters withdraw consent

BIDEN WON’T GET HIS WAY!

This article was contributed by The Wealth Research Group. 

Democrats have the legislative path to push through the $1.9tn American Rescue & Recovery Plan through the back door if they really wanted to; it’s called budget reconciliation. This is the mechanism that allows Democrats to vote on the plan, which will ease their path and relieve them from having to gain the support of at least ten Republicans, in order to reach the 61 total “YES” votes needed.

Biden presented the plan in a way that aims to unite the country, by hoping that Republican Senators agree to it, but $1.9tn is a huge sum!

Republicans can’t just abandon all logic and agree to this proposed stimulus plan, in the name of uniting the country. The markets, seeing through Biden’s weakness, are not happy with the delays that are projected with this plan.

This anticipated friction between the two camps is the cause of the few red days we’ve been seeing this week, especially in the NASDAQ 100 and, obviously, with precious metals.

BIDEN’S FIRST 100 DAYS

Wall Street’s forecast is that the $1.9tn will be trimmed back all the way to $1.1tn, which is a colossal difference.

The United States’ annual GDP comes out to be around $22tn, so a $1.9tn plan would equal just over 8.5% of it; the impact of it would be enormous.

Just in December 2020, Congress passed the $950bn plan, which took months to get approved and thousands of man-hours to get done. Hence, the idea that the government would easily persuade the majority of representatives to sign off on an additional $1.9tn – double the size of the last one – is proving to be an issue.

The budget reconciliation process, which is the feasible way to just use the Democrats’ majority, is what Biden’s team would resort to if the bipartisan angle doesn’t fly. To them, success would show that there is bipartisan support for the plan, so they’re pursuing this path first; that way, they show the country that Republicans have deserted Trump.

In American politics, there is no precedent for parties coming together on legislation like this, just because the president-elect wants to create an image of unity.

Clearly, Democrats are trying to show the world and their own voters that they are more flexible and civil than their more aggressive counterparts, who bulldozed through Washington, but that’s all a façade. If you know politics like a pro, you know that while Trump might have been a straight shooter in showing his disgust with the swamp, the other side is just as vicious, only they choose to conceal that part of their personality from the public.

Most Republicans won’t be fooled by these theatrics.

If the Democrats want to get ten Republican Senators to vote their way, there’ll be heavy political prices to pay.

Don’t forget that there’s an impeachment trial coming up (Which Mitch McConnell is being devious about {more on that this Tuesday}), which will be a focal point for Congress and might take weeks.

The markets are pricing in these time-consuming issues and they’re not excited about them.

BURNING ISSUES: WATCH THESE CLOSELY

  1. Precious metals must catch a bid this week, or I’m afraid that they’ll consolidate for weeks, perhaps even for 2-3 months, save for a new catalyst that might be introduced that’s not expected at this point.
  2. On the flip side, there are monstrous efforts on the part of central banks around the globe to artificially curtail the slump in the dollar. Many countries’ central banks are buying dollars and making assurances that they’ll keep on purchasing in 2021, in order to put a floor on its rapid decline – they’re creating artificial demand.

In Israel, for example, where I am currently, the dollar is trading at 1996-levels!

  1. Re-Opening the economy would mean that many more businesses would compete for your dollars. While closing Main Street compelled consumers to transact with Wall Street names and do their shopping with publicly-traded companies, re-opening would bring back mom-and-pop shops to our lives, weakening corporate profits and markets would price it in.

I like having cash right now and I like keeping my options open because things could go either way. Therefore, my cash allocation is at 23%, higher than my average 16%.

DACA DREAMers illegal immigrants immigration immigration reform Intelwars Joe Biden Pathway to citizenship

Biden’s immigration reform plan reportedly provides pathway to citizenship: ‘Stunned by the boldness’

President-elect Joe Biden’s robust legislative plans during his first days as president will include what the Los Angeles Times called “a groundbreaking legislative package” addressing immigration reform.

The plan will reportedly include a controversial proposal that would provide immigrants who are illegally residing in the United States with a pathway to citizenship.

What are the details?

Not only does the Biden proposal provide a pathway to citizenship for an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants residing in the U.S., but, according to the Times, Biden will seek a shorter pathway to citizenship for so-called “Dreamers,” immigrants who were illegally brought to the U.S. as minors by their parents and have been protected by the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

More from the LA Times:

Biden’s proposal lays out what would be the most sweeping and comprehensive immigration package since President Reagan’s Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, which granted legal status to 3 million people who were in the country without documentation.

Under Biden’s plan, immigrants would become eligible for legal permanent residence after five years and for U.S. citizenship after an additional three years — a faster path to citizenship than in previous immigration bills.

Immigrant advocates are reportedly “stunned by the boldness of Biden’s plan,” according to Politico.

Anything else?

Incoming-White House chief of staff Ron Klain revealed in a memo on Saturday the aggressive actions that Biden plans to take in the intiial days of his presidency.

According to the memo, Biden will sign executive orders that overturn President Donald Trump’s controversial so-called “travel ban,” return the U.S. to the Paris agreement on climate change, require face masks on federal property, direct the Department of Education to continue its coronavirus-related suspension of student loan payments, and extend the moratorium on evictions and foreclosures.

Within the first 10 days of his presidency, Biden will also sign executive action items related to COVID testing, racial equity, and criminal justice reform, NPR noted.

“President-elect Biden is assuming the presidency in a moment of profound crisis for our nation. We face four overlapping and compounding crisis: the COVID-19 crisis, the resulting economic crisis, the climate crisis, and a racial equality crisis,” Klain said. “All of these crises demand urgent action. In his first ten days, President-elect Biden will take decisive action to address these four crises, prevent other urgent and irreversible harms, and restore America’s place in the world.”

CBO CBS News Intelwars Joe Biden Mainstream media Media Bias minimum wage

CBS News praises Biden for minimum wage hike proposal, buries fact that it may cost millions of jobs

CBS News was criticized this week for whitewashing the effects of President-elect Joe Biden’s proposal to hike the federal minimum wage.

What is the background?

Biden released his proposal for new coronavirus-related economic relief on Thursday, which boasts a price tag of $1.9 trillion. Included in the bill, in addition to stimulus checks and more federal unemployment benefits, is a proposal to hike the federal minimum wage to at least $15 per hour.

CBS News praised Biden’s proposal.

The news outlet titled its story on Biden’s bill, “Biden minimum wage proposal could lift more than 1 million workers out of poverty.”

But what’s the truth?

As the old adage goes, CBS News “buried the lede.”

While Biden’s proposal would, indeed, lift some Americans out of poverty, the Congressional Budget Office also discovered that Biden’s proposal to hike the federal minimum wage would put millions of Americans out of work.

CBS News admitted as much in its story, albeit in the ninth paragraph:

The CBO also estimated the move would cost 1.3 million American jobs, a claim long made by conservative economists. Mr. Biden’s call to boost the minimum wage to $15 an hour “is the absolute last thing that unemployed workers need right now,” Michael Farren, an economist with the right-leaning Mercatus Center at George Mason University, said in an email. “After all, they can’t benefit from higher wages if those higher wages result in slower job growth.”

In fact, the CBO report from 2019 found that 1.3 million jobs is only the median estimate of job losses, explaining there is a significant chance that a $15 per hour minimum wage would result in even more job losses.

The report explained, “In an average week in 2025, the $15 option would boost the wages of 17 million workers who would otherwise earn less than $15 per hour. Another 10 million workers otherwise earning slightly more than $15 per hour might see their wages rise as well. But 1.3 million other workers would become jobless, according to CBO’s median estimate. There is a two-thirds chance that the change in employment would be between about zero and a decrease of 3.7 million workers. The number of people with annual income below the poverty threshold in 2025 would fall by 1.3 million.”

Ultimately, not only would a higher minimum wage cost jobs, but the costs associated with raising wages would be passed onto consumers, CBS News noted.

Biden inauguration Bill Maher Intelwars Joe Biden Katie Couric Real Time real time with bill maher Trump ban

Katie Couric wants to know how we will ‘deprogram people who signed up for the cult of Trump’

During her appearance on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Katie Couric attacked Republican members of Congress and President Donald Trump. Couric went so far as to ask, “How are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump?”

The former co-anchor of NBC’s “Today” show besieged Republican lawmakers who are friendly toward Trump. Couric appeared to assail Republicans such as Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert, who vowed to carry her gun into work in Washington, D.C.

Following the riots at the Capitol, metal detectors were installed in the building. Several Republican Congress members, including Boebert, objected to the metal detectors and searches.

“It is so shocking. … Not only are they not conceding, Bill, but their thoughts – that there might have been some collusion among members of Congress, some are refusing to go through magnetometers … to check for weapons, they’re not wearing masks during this siege,” Couric told Bill Maher.

Earlier this week, Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) also slammed GOP Congress members for not wearing face masks during the chaos at the Capitol on Jan. 6. Pressley proclaimed that Republicans not wearing face masks was “criminal behavior,” and argued that the maskless politicians were engaging in “chemical warfare.”

Couric continued her condemnation of Republicans, “I mean, it’s really bizarre, isn’t it, when you think about how AWOL so many of these members of Congress have gotten. But I also think some of them are believing the garbage that they are being fed 24/7 on the internet, by their constituents, and they bought into this big lie.”

Couric declared, “And the question is how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump.”

Couric then called for the impeachment of Trump.

“But Bill, if you commit a crime and then you move, does that means we’re not going to charge you with a crime because you’re moving out of the neighborhood? I mean, it’s ludicrous,” Couric argued. “I think there have to be guardrails on presidential power. He incited violence. … He was really, really inciting violence.”

Couric fantasized about a “Hollywood ending” to Trump’s administration where Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) “comes out as the hero” to convict the president.

Couric celebrated Trump being banned from social media platforms, such as Twitter and Facebook.

“You’re not allowed to yell fire at a crowded theater, so if you’re inciting violence and you’re spreading lies that are getting people fired up, encouraging violence, I think there should be some standard,” Couric said of the banning of Trump on social media.

The career talk show host gleefully welcomed Joe Biden as the next president, calling his inauguration an “important symbol of closing the chapter on Donald Trump.”

Maher cautioned that the 78-year-old Biden should hold a small, indoor inauguration ceremony to protect against a potential coronavirus risk.

“Joe Biden – he’s a friggin’ tragedy magnet,” Maher remarked. “He broke his foot playing with his dog. I mean, his eye exploded from blinking. We have got to treat this guy like the baby in ‘Children of Men.'”

Couric downplayed Biden’s previous health issues, while at the same time maligning Trump’s physique.

“I think he’s pretty vibrant and in good shape,” Couric defended Biden. “You saw him run across the stage when he made that speech. … I mean, compare his physical fitness to Donald Trump, hello!”

Couric will be a guest host on “Jeopardy!,” attempting to fill in for the late Alex Trebek.

Coronavirus Defense production act Intelwars Joe Biden Manufacture Vaccine

Joe Biden says he’ll use Defense Production Act to boost supplies needed for administering vaccines

President-elect Joe Biden said Friday that he will use the Defense Production Act to boost supplies needed to administer vaccines to speed up the nation’s effort to inoculate citizens against COVID-19.

What are the details?

“We’ll use the Defense Production Act to work with private industry to accelerate the making of materials needed to supply and administer the vaccine — from the tube and syringes, to protective equipment,” Biden said

The president-elect did not name which companies would be tapped, but explained that his transition team has already been working on the effort, saying, “Even though we don’t have the authority yet, go out and identify those companies that are prepared and will be able to do what we’re going to ask.”

“We need more vaccination sites,” Biden declared in a speech. “That’s where we’re going to harness the full resources of the federal government to establish thousands of community vaccination centers. On my first day in office I’ll instruct the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to begin setting up the first of these centers.

“By the end of my first month in office, we will have 100 federally supported centers across the nation that will ultimately vaccinate millions of people,” he said, noting that his administration would prioritize black and Latino communities.

Biden went on to say that pharmacies across the nation will also be empowered to administered the vaccine, much as they do flu shots.

“You have my word: We will manage the hell out of this operation,” he promised.

During the speech, Biden was critical of the Trump administration’s distribution efforts of the two coronavirus vaccines developed through President Donald Trump’s initiative, “Operation Warp Speed.” The Associated Press reported that Biden has called Trump’s vaccine rollout “a dismal failure so far.”

Biden’s discussion of his plans to combat COVID-19 came the day after he unveiled a $1.9 trillion “American Rescue Plan” that includes $1,400 stimulus checks, an extension of moratoriums on evictions and foreclosures, and a federal minimum wage increase to $15 per hour.

The AP reported:

About $400 billion of the plan is focused on measures aimed at controlling the virus. Those range from mass vaccination centers to more sophisticated scientific analysis of new strains and squads of local health workers to trace the contacts of infected people.

authoritarians capitol hill Censorship Donald Trump elections are selections elitists free speech freedom government is slavery Headline News inauguration Insurrection Intelwars jack dorsey Joe Biden Masters People permits are permission power Project Veritas QAnon Riots ruling class sided with tyranny silenced slaves taxation is theft Twitter

Twitter’s Jack Dorsey Says The Social Media Purge Will Last Long After Biden’s Inaguration

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has said that censorship “is bigger than one account” after permanently suspending President Donald Trump from the platform. He has suggested that the deletion of free speech on his platform will continue long after Joe Biden is inaugurated.

Jame O’Keefe from Project Veritas has released a new video showing Dorsey saying the elimination of free speech on Twitter is coming. It’s about to be an echo chamber for obedient slaves.

Project Veritas said it obtained the leaked video, which is dated to January 8, from a Twitter insider, who ostensibly captured it during a virtual company meeting. In the clip, Dorsey also cites Twitter’s recently ramped-up efforts to expunge all accounts related to the QAnon online conspiracy community following a violent disturbance on Capitol Hill last week, arguing they should provide a model for content-policing going forward.

“The moves we’re making today around QAnon, for instance, is one such example of a broader approach that we should be looking at and going deeper on,” the CEO said, adding that such content is not “going away anytime soon.”

Observing that the US is “extremely divided,” Dorsey argued that Twitter’s role is “to protect the integrity” of political discourse in the country and to “do what we can to make sure that no one is being harmed based off that,” reiterating an often-stated goal to cut down on “real-world harm” stemming from activity on the web. The CEO previously defended Trump’s suspension on the same grounds, claiming the move would protect “public safety.”

That means Twitter has chosen the side of the ruling class, the masters, and has no intention of helping free the slaves. The elitists of the world will do everything possible to maintain their power over people.

Most social media sites have taken to censorship in light of the “riot” at the Capitol. Social media sites including YouTube and Facebook have purged thousands of accounts, most alleging those accounts “incited violence” and contributed to the unrest in DC.

So let’s be clear: rioting and the destruction of private individuals’ property is fine, but don’t you dare take it to the source, the masters causing the division and enslaving us all.

Both Reddit and Discord have also moved to censor certain groups too.  Are you getting the message yet?

A Nation Imploding: Digital Tyranny, Insurrection and Martial Law

This article was originally published by John W. Whitehead at The Rutherford Institute. 

“In this difficult day, in this difficult time for the United States, it is perhaps well to ask what kind of a nation we are and what direction we want to move in. [Y]ou can be filled with bitterness, with hatred, and a desire for revenge. We can move in that direction as a country, in great polarization…filled with hatred toward one another. Or we can make an effort … to understand and to comprehend, and to replace that violence, that stain of bloodshed that has spread across our land, with an effort to understand with compassion and love… What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence or lawlessness; but love and wisdom, and compassion toward one another, and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or they be black.”—Robert F. Kennedy on the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

This is what we have been reduced to: A violent mob. A nation on the brink of martial law. A populace under house arrest. A techno-corporate state wielding its power to immobilize huge swaths of the country. And a Constitution in tatters.

We are imploding on multiple fronts, all at once.

This is what happens when ego, greed, and power are allowed to take precedence over liberty, equality, and justice.

Just to be clear, however: this is not a revolution.

This is a ticking time bomb.

There is absolutely no excuse for the violence that took place at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Yet no matter which way you look at it, the fallout from this attempted coup could make this worrisome state of affairs even worse.

First, you’ve got the president, who has been accused of inciting a riot and now faces a second impeachment and a scandal that could permanently mar his legacy. While the impeachment process itself is a political beast, the question of whether President Trump incited his followers to riot is one that has even the best legal experts debating. Yet as First Amendment scholar David Hudson Jr. explains, for Trump’s rhetoric to be stripped of its free speech protections, “The speaker must intend to and actually use words that rally people to take illegal action. The danger must be imminent—not in the indefinite future. And the words must be uttered in a situation in which violence is likely to happen.”

At a minimum, Trump’s actions and words—unstatesmanlike and reckless, by any standards—over the course of his presidency and on Jan. 6 helped cause a simmering pot to boil over.

Second, there were the so-called “patriots” who took to the streets because the jailer of their choice didn’t get chosen to knock heads for another four years. Those “Stop the Steal” protesters may have deluded themselves (or been deluded) into believing they were standing for freedom when they stormed the Capitol. However, all they really did was give the Deep State and its corporate partners a chance to pull back the curtain and reveal how little freedom we really have. There is nothing that can be said to justify the actions of those who, armed with metal pipes, chemical irritants, stun guns, and other types of weapons, assaulted and stampeded those in their path.

There are limits to what can be done in the so-called name of liberty, and this level of violence—no matter who wields it or what brand of politics or zealotry motivate them—crossed the line.

Third, you’ve got the tech giants, who meted out their own version of social justice by way of digital tyranny and corporate censorship. Yet there can be no freedom of speech if social media giants can muzzle whomever they want, whenever they want, on whatever pretext they want in the absence of any real due process, review, or appeal. As Edward Snowden warned, whether it was warranted or not, the social media ban on President Trump signaled a turning point in the battle for control over digital speech. And that is exactly what is playing out as users, including those who have no ties to the Capitol riots, begin to experience lockouts, suspensions, and even deletions of their social media accounts.

Remember, the First Amendment is a steam valve. It allows people to peacefully air viewpoints, vent frustrations, debate and disagree, and generally work through the problems of self-governance. Without that safety mechanism in place, self-censorship increases, discontent festers, foment brews, and violence becomes the default response for resolving disputes, whether with the government or each other. At a minimum, we need more robust protections in place to protect digital expression and a formalized process for challenging digital censorship.

Unfortunately, digital censorship is just the beginning. Once you start using social media scores coupled with surveillance capitalism to determine who is worthy enough to be part of society, anything goes. In China, which has been traveling this road for years now, millions of individuals and businesses, blacklisted as “unworthy” based on social media credit scores that grade them based on whether they are “good” citizens, have been banned from accessing financial markets, buying real estate or traveling by air or train.

Fourth, you’ve got the police, who normally exceed the constitutional limits restraining them from brutality, surveillance, and other excesses. Only this time, despite intelligence indicating that some of the rioters were planning for mayhem, police were outnumbered and ill-prepared to deal with the incursion. Investigations underway suggest that some police may even have colluded with the rioters.

Certainly, the lack of protocols adopted by the Capitol Police bears an unnerving resemblance to the lack of protocols in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017, when police who were supposed to uphold the law and prevent violence failed to do either. In fact, as the Washington Post reports, police “seemed to watch as groups beat each other with sticks and bludgeoned one another with shields… At one point, police appeared to retreat and then watch the beatings before eventually moving in to end the free-for-all, make arrests and tend to the injured.” Incredibly, when the first signs of open violence broke out, it was reported that the police chief allegedly instructed his staff to “let them fight, it will make it easier to declare an unlawful assembly.”

There’s a pattern emerging if you pay close enough attention: Instead of restoring order, local police stand down. Without fail, what should be an exercise in how to peacefully disagree turns ugly the moment looting, vandalism, violence, intimidation tactics, and rioting are introduced into the equation. Tensions rise, violence escalates, and federal armies move in.

All that was missing on Jan. 6 was a declaration of martial law.

Which brings us to the fifth point, martial law. Given that the nation has been dancing around the fringes of martial law with each national crisis, it won’t take much more to push the country over the edge to a declaration and military lockdown. The rumblings of armed protests at all 50 state capitals and in Washington, D.C., will only serve to heighten tensions, double down on the government’s military response, and light a match to a powder keg state of affairs. With tens of thousands of National Guard troops and federal law enforcement personnel mobilized to lock down Washington, DC, in the wake of the Jan. 6 riots and in advance of the Jan. 20 inauguration, this could be the largest military show-of-force in recent years.

So where do we go from here?

That all of these events are coming to a head around Martin Luther King Jr. Day is telling.

More than 50 years after King was assassinated, America has become a ticking time bomb of racial unrest and injustice, police militarization, surveillance, government corruption and ineptitude, the blowback from a battlefield mindset and endless wars abroad, and a growing economic inequality between the haves and have nots

Making matters worse, modern America has compounded the evils of racism, materialism, and militarism with ignorance, intolerance, and fear.

Callousness, cruelty, meanness, immorality, ignorance, hatred, intolerance, and injustice have become hallmarks of our modern age, magnified by an echo chamber of nasty tweets and government-sanctioned brutality.

“Despite efforts to curb hate speech, eradicate bullying and extend tolerance, a culture of nastiness has metastasized in which meanness is routinely rewarded, and common decency and civility are brushed aside,” observed Teddy Wayne in a New York Times piece on “The Culture of Nastiness.”

Every time I read a news headline or flip on the television or open up an email or glance at social media, I run headlong into people consumed with back-biting, partisan politics, sniping, toxic hate, meanness, and materialism. Donald Trump is, in many ways, the embodiment of this culture of meanness. Yet as Wayne points out, “Trump is less enabler in chief than a symptom of a free-for-all environment that prizes cutting smears… Social media has normalized casual cruelty.”

Whether it’s unfriending or blocking someone on Facebook, tweeting taunts and barbs on Twitter, or merely using cyberspace to bully someone or peddle in gossip, we have become masters in the art of meanness.

This culture of meanness has come to characterize many aspects of the nation’s governmental and social policies. “Meanness today is a state of mind,” writes professor Nicolaus Mills in his book The Triumph of Meanness, “the product of a culture of spite and cruelty that has had an enormous impact on us.”

This casual cruelty is made possible by a growing polarization within the populace that emphasizes what divides us—race, religion, economic status, sexuality, ancestry, politics, etc.—rather than what unites us: we are all human.

This is what writer Anna Quindlen refers to as “the politics of exclusion, what might be thought of as the cult of otherness… It divides the country as surely as the Mason-Dixon line once did. And it makes for mean-spirited and punitive politics and social policy.”

This is more than meanness, however.

This is the psychopathic mindset adopted by the architects of the Deep State, and it applies equally whether you’re talking about Democrats or Republicans.

Beware, because this kind of psychopathology can spread like a virus among the populace.

As an academic study into pathocracy concluded, “[T]yranny does not flourish because perpetuators are helpless and ignorant of their actions. It flourishes because they actively identify with those who promote vicious acts as virtuous.”

People don’t simply line up and salute. It is through one’s own personal identification with a given leader, party, or social order that they become agents of good or evil. To this end, “we the people” have become “we the police state.”

By failing to actively take a stand for good, we become agents of evil. It’s not the person in charge who is solely to blame for the carnage. It’s the populace that looks away from the injustice, that empowers the totalitarian regime, that welcomes the building blocks of tyranny.

This realization hit me full-force a few years ago. I had stopped into a bookstore and was struck by all of the books on Hitler, everywhere I turned. Yet had there been no Hitler, there still would have been a Nazi regime. There still would have been gas chambers and concentration camps and a Holocaust.

Hitler wasn’t the architect of the Holocaust. He was merely the figurehead. The same goes for the American police state: had there been no Trump or Obama or Bush, there still would have been a police state. There still would have been police shootings and private prisons and endless wars and government pathocracy.

Why? Because “we the people” have paved the way for this tyranny to prevail.

By turning Hitler into a super-villain who singlehandedly terrorized the world—not so different from how Trump is often depicted—historians have given Hitler’s accomplices (the German government, the citizens that opted for security and order over liberty, the religious institutions that failed to speak out against evil, the individuals who followed orders even when it meant a death sentence for their fellow citizens) a free pass.

This is how tyranny rises and freedom falls.

None of us who remain silent and impassive in the face of evil, racism, extreme materialism, meanness, intolerance, cruelty, injustice, and ignorance get a free pass.

Those among us who follow figureheads without question, who turn a blind eye to injustice and turn their backs on need, who march in lockstep with tyrants and bigots, who allow politics to trump principle, who give in to meanness and greed, and who fail to be outraged by the many wrongs being perpetrated in our midst, it is these individuals who must shoulder the blame when the darkness wins.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that,” Martin Luther King Jr. sermonized.

The darkness is winning

It’s not just on the world stage we must worry about the darkness winning

The darkness is winning in our communities. It’s winning in our homes, our neighborhoods, our churches and synagogues, and our government bodies. It’s winning in the hearts of men and women the world over who are embracing hatred over love. It’s winning in every new generation that is being raised to care only for themselves, without any sense of moral or civic duty to stand for freedom.

John F. Kennedy, killed by an assassin’s bullet five years before King would be similarly executed, spoke of a torch that had been “passed to a new generation of Americans—born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage—and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.

Once again, a torch is being passed to a new generation, but this torch is setting the world on fire, burning down the foundations put in place by our ancestors, and igniting all of the ugliest sentiments in our hearts.

This fire is not liberating; it is destroying.

We are teaching our children all the wrong things: we are teaching them to hate, teaching them to worship false idols (materialism, celebrity, technology, politics), teaching them to prize vain pursuits and superficial ideals over kindness, goodness, and depth.

We are on the wrong side of the revolution.

“If we are to get on to the right side of the world revolution,” advised King, “we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society.

Freedom demands responsibility.

Freedom demands that we stop thinking as Democrats and Republicans and start thinking like human beings, or at the very least, Americans.

Martin Luther King Jr. dared to dream of a world in which all Americans “would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

He didn’t live to see that dream become a reality. It’s still not a reality. We haven’t dared to dream that dream in such a long time.

But imagine…

Imagine what this country would be like if Americans put aside their differences and dared to stand up—united—for freedom…

Imagine what this country would be like if Americans put aside their differences and dared to speak out—with one voice—against injustice…

Imagine what this country would be like if Americans put aside their differences and dared to push back—with the full force of our collective numbers—against the evils of government despotism.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, tyranny wouldn’t stand a chance.

administration officials Chiefs COVID-19 Death Dr. Leana Wen elderly eligible expand access to vaccines Genocide Headline News health conditions Intelwars Joe Biden Mainstream media nurse dies Operation warp speed propaganda ruling class side effects States Vaccination vaccine killing people vaccines vaccines in arms

Vaccine Push Moves Forward As Tyranny Advances In America

The push to get people injected with the newly approved COVID-19 vaccines is gaining speed once again.  The ruling class is not content with how many shots have been given yet, and until we are all vaccinated, they probably won’t be.

In order to push this vaccine on as many people as possible, Operation Warp Speed chiefs said states should expand access to Covid-19 vaccines to everyone 65 and older. They should also give them to any adult with an underlying health condition that might raise the risk for complications of Covid-19.

The guidelines are intended to prompt faster distribution of the vaccines by making more people immediately eligible for vaccination, as well as expanding the potential locations where people can receive it. Of the more than 25 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine that have been delivered nationwide, just under 9 million shots had been put into Americans’ arms as of Tuesday, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. –NBC News

“Every vaccine dose that is sitting in a warehouse rather than going into an arm could mean one more life lost,” Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said during a media briefing Tuesday, where he and other administration officials announced the recommendations. Say what?

Portuguese Nurse Dies Suddenly After Receiving COVID Vaccine

Last week, Joe Biden announced his administration is planning to release all available doses of coronavirus vaccines to the states for distribution immediately. Additionally, according to a report by NBC News, Dr. Leana Wen, an emergency physician and former health commissioner for Baltimore, praised the new efforts. “These are exactly the right steps that we need at this point to better align supply and demand,” Wen said.

the momentary distraction of last week’s Capitol hill riot didn’t slow the rollout of this vaccine, it only stalled the media’s reporting on it. There is a desperate push by the ruling class and the mainstream media to get people to willingly submit to having this thing injected into their bodies. Use your discernment. Things will only get more chaotic as these agendas advance.

Anti-trump republicans Attorney COVID-19 Donald Trump Intelwars Joe Biden PBS Project veritas video reeducation camps

PBS staff attorney said gov’t should take away children of Trump voters and put them in ‘reeducation camps.’ Now he’s out of a job.

A PBS staff attorney is out of a job after saying on a secretly recorded video that the federal government should take children away from people who voted for President Donald Trump and put them in “reeducation camps.”

What are the details?

The Project Veritas video recorded prior to the 2020 election shows now-former PBS principal counsel Michael Beller saying “these kids who are growing up knowing nothing but Trump … for four years,” and “you’ve gotta wonder what they’re gonna be like … they’ll be raising a generation of intolerant, horrible people — horrible kids.”

Beller also said that “even if [then-Democratic presidential nominee Joe] Biden wins, we go for all the Republican voters, and Homeland Security will take their children away … and we’ll put them into re-education camps.”

He also called them “enlightenment camps” and said that “they’re nice. They have Sesame Street characters in the classroom, and they watch PBS all day.”

How did PBS react?

PBS released a statement saying, “This employee no longer works for PBS. As a mid-level staff attorney, he did not speak on behalf of our organization, nor did he make any editorial decisions.”

The statement continued: “There is no place for hateful rhetoric at PBS, and this individual’s views in no way reflect our values or opinions. We strongly condemn violence and will continue to do what we have done for 50 years — use our national platform and local presence to strengthen communities and bring people together.”

What else did he say on the video?

In the video, Beller also said “Trump is close to Hitler,” and that if the president were to win the election, the response would be to “go to the White House and throw Molotov cocktails.”

He also said “PBS has like, real news” and “CNN doesn’t have real news anymore. It’s just talking heads talking about Trump all day long.” But Beller said Fox News “makes me want to throw up after five minutes” and that it’s full of “Joe Biden s**t” that’s “all made up. It’s all ridiculous.”

As for his fellow citizens, Beller said, “Americans are so f***ing dumb. You know, most people are dumb.”

Well, except for the elite who dwell in Washington, D.C., and are “educated and know stuff” — unlike those who live in “one of these other towns or states where everybody’s just stupid.”

Beller also commented on the coronavirus, noting that it’s “great” that “COVID is spiking in all the red states right now.” When asked why, he replied that “either those people won’t come out to vote for Trump — you know, the red states — or a lot of them are sick and dying.”

Americans armed protests break free certify election results Congress COVID-19 democracy is mob rule Donald Trump elections are selections FBI geo political government is slavery Headline News Hoax human rights Insurrection Intelwars Joe Biden Kamala Harris Law Enforcement scamdemic security officials Stop the steal Storm capitol

FBI Warns: Armed Protests Planned For All 50 State Capitols

According to the FBI, armed protests are planned for all 50 state capitols as the inauguration of Joe Biden approaches.  The FBI said in a statement: “The FBI is supporting our state, local, and federal law enforcement partners with maintaining public safety in the communities we serve.”

Supporters of President Donald Trump will descend upon the capital cities of all 50 states in advance of the inauguration if the FBI’s warning is correct. Biden and Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris are expected to be sworn in at a ceremony at the Capitol. The Biden team has already urged Americans to avoid traveling to the capital because of the Covid-19 hoax. But now, “authorities” are urging people to stay home.

Security officials have said there will be no repeat of the breach seen on 6 January, when thousands of pro-Trump supporters were able to break into the building where members of Congress were voting to certify the election result.- BBC

Not to be the ones to attempt unity, house Democrats say a vote to impeach the president will happen on Wednesday. They are accusing President Trump of “incitement of insurrection” and say the vote will be held unless Vice-President Mike Pence invokes constitutional powers to remove Trump from office. There is no sign that Pence is willing to do so.

Because Democrats hold a majority in the house, Trump is expected to become the first president to be impeached twice. This could have an impact on planned protests and it will also solidify the division the government is using to make sure the New World Order’s Great Reset is ushered in.

An internal FBI bulletin, reported by ABC News and other outlets, is also warning that one group is calling for the “storming” of state, local, and federal courthouses around the country if Trump is removed from office early and on inauguration day if he is not.

Democrats Plan To Pressure Pence To Remove Donald Trump

Violence and a show of force will only amplify the situation and cause a crackdown on the public. The best thing to do right now is to stay out of all of this.  Help others if you can, and try to do the right thing.  Stay out of this fray, stay prepared, and make sure you’re alert and use discernment. In the coming weeks, cooler heads will prevail.

The Gray Man Concept: Tips To Improve This Important Survival Skill

The solution is to leave the system and stop supporting it.

BILL OF RIGHTS Constitution democracy is mob rule divide and conquer division Donald Trump end of society freedom government is slavery Headline News human rights Intelwars Joe Biden left vs. right paradigm lie ruling class selected officials tyranny voters

TRUMP WILL NEVER CONCEDE!: America Is Now Two Countries

This article was contributed by Future Money Trends. 

What we’re about to discuss should not shock anyone: The United States of America stands at a crossroads. In the past, when such trying times occurred, the binding glue that propelled the country forward was cherishing the freedom, liberty, and pursuit of happiness set forth in the Constitution and Bill of Rights. The country also united under charismatic and optimistic leaders that had magnetic personalities, such as Abe Lincoln, JFK, and Theodore Roosevelt.

Today, the situation is much more complex. No one thinks that Joe Biden (not even those who voted for him) is a one-of-a-kind political magician who will rally the country after him. He doesn’t possess the personal charm of Kennedy or the oral talents of FDR. When in crisis, the country usually elects a born leader, a person deemed to have extraordinary qualities, but the Democrats did not produce such a person.

This isn’t a political opinion; it’s a reality that few would argue, if any.

The mission of the Democrats was simply to ensure that Donald Trump doesn’t stay in office for four more years and to gain a majority in the Senate. Most would argue that until the coronavirus showed up, Trump was quite popular with many who ended up voting for Biden (swinging away from him).

There was growing discontent with the government ever since the 2008 bailouts for Wall Street and it only intensified in the years that followed, culminating in a complete lack of trust in elected officials by a growing number of people. This is not an American phenomenon, but a global one. We’ve seen civil unrest in a great many countries.

Democracy only functions when the minority feels that the majority won’t abuse its power. The minority (according to the certification of Joe Biden), which are the Republicans and Trump’s supporters, do not buy into this. They refuse to go along with the status quo, protesting the lack of real investigation into voter fraud allegations and election irregularities. They’re also concerned about the following: reckless spending, higher taxes, Radical Left ideas, socialism, open borders, restriction of free speech, too much government, and pro-China policies, among other things.

They protest censorship of free speech, double standards in reporting of rioting, assault on their rights, and show their hatred of the Radical Left, by taking a stand.

On the flip side, Trump haters are celebrating and can’t wait to see him gone. They couldn’t stand what he stood for since he attacked the establishment.

This is, of course, an overly-simplified explanation of the forces at play. What really matters is that it seems like the left and right are growing further apart, with fewer people in the middle, less and less of them wanting to compromise and to settle on ideological matters.

In other words, remaining neutral is becoming harder since the two agendas are so far apart that staying in the center shows a lack of courage to follow one’s heart.

No one can simultaneously like and hate that Twitter banned President Trump. One can either see it as a violent act of censorship, which could be even construed as inciting violence (since Twitter is backing Trump’s supporters into a corner), or as justified since Twitter is acting responsibly – you’re either here or there.

Future Money Trends believes that Trump will never concede, nor will many millions of his voters. This is not a small movement, nor a weak one; their votes will likely form a large third party in the 2024 elections.

The United States is one of the only Western countries with only two big parties. We tend to think that the various factions within the population are not represented by the two main parties and that we’ll see the rise of a pretty large new party led by Trump or other politicians who share his views.

It’s a big prediction, but it’s certainly where the country is already heading.

A person working in one of the tech companies and living in San Francisco, Seattle, or New York City has little in common with a person from the rust belt or the heartland.

The fabric of society is definitely falling apart and what we’re afraid of is that politicians will resort to an age-old tradition in Washington, which is to find a “new” enemy, a common foreign enemy, to rally the people against.

Watch this narrative and be ready to call it out!

Democrats Plan To Pressure Pence To Remove Donald Trump

Source: The New York Times

Democrats will move to pressure vice president Mike Pence to invoke the 25th amendment and remove Donald Trump from office.  This seems ridiculous considering Trump has a mere 9 days left as president. So the real question should be: why bother?

If Joe Biden won a “free and fair election” and Trump has said that an “orderly” transfer of power will occur, why would democrats even need to waste their time trying to remove him from office? According to the Wall Street Journal, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she will introduce a resolution on Monday; “We will act with urgency.”

Mr. Pence isn’t expected to move forward with a 25th Amendment process, people familiar with his thinking said.

One article of impeachment that accuses Mr. Trump of inciting an insurrection was close to having enough support to pass the House. Meanwhile, more GOP lawmakers said Sunday Mr. Trump should resign. –Wall Street Journal

“In protecting our Constitution and our Democracy, we will act with urgency, because this President represents an imminent threat to both,” Pelosi said in a letter to her Democratic colleagues, according to CNN.  “As the days go by, the horror of the ongoing assault on our democracy perpetrated by this President is intensified and so is the immediate need for action.”

No matter which articles you read, the only reason to push through impeachment in the last 9 days of Trump’s administration is his “inciting” of the riots and protests on January 6th at the Capitol. Again, with only 9 days to go, there’s almost nothing Trump can do at this time and the social media giants have already taken out his means of communicating with the public.

Democrats are justifying the unprecedented push for a second impeachment on the grounds that after his most flagrant abuse of power yet, Trump presents a stark danger to the country and the world and must be removed immediately. Another motivating factor is that a conviction in a Senate trial would likely bar Trump from ever seeking public office again. They parry critiques that such a late-term impeachment would be academic by arguing that Trump’s crime against the Constitution cannot go unpunished. –CNN

If there is success in the impeachment of Trump, he will not be able to seek any public office ever again. Perhaps that’s the goal.  However, we all know elections are selections (that should be obvious by now) and they’ll put whoever they want in power, so what’s the point?

This might be all a distraction to cause more division. Keep your eyes on issues such as this.  There’s a bigger reason for the impeachment of Trump than they are telling us.  There’s a reason and we should be asking these questions.

Right-Wing “Extremists” Plan To Descend Upon Washington Again For Biden’s Inaguration

Some supporters of Donald Trump will once again descend upon the Capitol on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration. There will be protests against Biden’s inauguration as the evidence of voting irregularities continue to surface.

“Many of Us will return on January 19, 2021, carrying Our weapons, in support of Our nation’s resolve, towhich [sic] the world will never forget!!! We will come in numbers that no standing army or police agency can match,” wrote a popular Parler user who frequently posts about QAnon, and is being tracked by the Anti-Defamation League.

“Round 2 on January 20th. This time no mercy. I don’t even care about keeping Trump in power. I care about war,” an anonymous person posted on the platform TheDonald.win, which is filled with comments posted by people who lauded those who went to the capitol on January 6th as “heroes.”

According to NBC News, censorship is necessary because people are rallying against corruption in the government.

Parler, Telegram chat rooms, and the platform TheDonald.win were all used to plan and coordinate the Jan. 6 rally that turned into a riot. Posters explicitly stated their intentions to “occupy” the Capitol. QAnon conspiracy theorists and people associated with militia groups had a visible presence in Wednesday’s crowd. –NBC News

They are setting the stage for the takedown of communications and massive censorship campaigns that have already begun.

“There is growing concern that violent extremists are emboldened by the breach of the Capitol, which means the clock is ticking on taking down the most influential incites of violence before they act again,” said Frank Figliuzzi, former FBI assistant director and NBC News national security analyst.

Brace yourselves:

Things are going to continue to get more divisive and the rhetoric won’t stop.

Stay prepared and alert. Watch these headlines and understand what the media is doing.  This is all about the division and it is not going to get better after Biden’s inauguration. This will not end until we wake up en mass and stop allowing ourselves to be ruled by the few.

Biden administration Biden inauguration Big tech Big tech censorship Intelwars Joe Biden President Biden

Big tech giants Google, Microsoft and Qualcomm among top donors to Biden’s Inaugural Committee

The Biden Inaugural Committee released its list of donors, which included big tech companies Google, Microsoft, and Qualcomm. The Biden Inaugural Committee published the list of its top donors on Saturday, all of whom contributed “over $200 to the 59th Presidential Inaugural activities.”

Besides the big tech giants, other notable benefactors include multinational telecommunications conglomerate Verizon, cable television behemoth Comcast, mass media company Charter Communications, defense and aerospace manufacturer Boeing, health insurance provider Anthem, and medical technology company Masimo Corporation.

Several unions made donations, including the American Federation of Teachers COPE, United Food And Commercial Workers, and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.

The amount of the donations are not provided, but the committee will have to disclose that information within 90 days after Inauguration Day, according to FEC guidance.

“President-elect Joe Biden’s newly formed inaugural committee will accept donations from individuals up to $500,000 and from corporations up to $1 million,” CNBC reported on Nov. 30.

An organization can be named a chair of the inaugural if it gives $1 million, and an individual can be designated as a chair if they donate $500,000. The VIP chair package includes “an invitation to virtual events with the President-elect and Vice President-elect and their spouses with virtual signed photos, along with ‘preferred viewing’ for the inauguration, among other things,” according to Fox News.

A since-deleted “donor” page on the Biden inauguration website had stated the committee “does not accept contributions from fossil fuel companies (i.e., companies whose primary business is the extraction, processing, distribution or sale of oil, gas or coal), their executives, or from PACs organized by them.”

Biden’s campaign had also banned donations from lobbyists and the oil and gas industry. Employees of fossil fuel companies were allowed to donate up to $200.

Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20 is expected to be significantly smaller in scale because of the coronavirus pandemic. Biden’s inauguration will have a “virtual parade across America,” and feature “diverse, dynamic” performances.

“The parade will celebrate America’s heroes, highlight Americans from all walks of life in different states and regions, and reflect on the diversity, heritage, and resilience of the country as we begin a new American era,” the inaugural committee said in a press release.

“We are excited about the possibilities and opportunities this moment presents to allow all Americans to participate in our country’s sacred inaugural traditions,” said Presidential Inaugural Committee executive director Maju Varghese.

President Donald Trump has proclaimed that he will not attend Biden’s inauguration.

Intelwars Joe Biden joseph goebbels Josh hawley nazi Nazi Germany Ted Cruz

Republican senators fire back after Joe Biden seemingly compares them to infamous Nazi propaganda leader

Two Republican senators are responding after President-elect Joe Biden allegedly compared them to infamous Nazi propaganda leader Joseph Goebbels.

What did Biden say?

Responding to a question from a reporter on Friday, Biden claimed that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) are part of the “big lie.” Both senators led efforts to oppose the certification of Biden’s Electoral College victory, which their critics have claimed make them at least partially culpable for the U.S. Capitol riots.

Biden invoking “the big lie” is a reference to Goebbels, the propaganda minister of Nazi Germany, and his method of repeating a massive lie to manipulate the public into believing the falsehood is true.

“I think they should be just flat beat the next time they run,” Biden said of Cruz and Hawley. “I think the American public has a real good clear look at who they are.”

“They’re part of the big lie, the big lie,” Biden continued. “[Y]ou know Goebbels in the great lie, you keep repeating the lie, repeating the lie.”

Later, Biden added, “The degree to which it becomes corrosive is in direct proportion of the number of people who say it. And so it’s interesting to me and I was pleased to hear some more prominent Republicans say to me that Ted Cruz’s of the world are as responsible in terms of people believing the lies as, not as responsible, but similar responsible like Trump.”

Biden has previously compared President Donald Trump to Goebbels.

“He’s sort of like Goebbels,” Biden said of Trump in September. “You say the lie long enough, keep repeating it, repeating it, repeating it — it becomes common knowledge.”

How did Cruz and Hawley respond?

Hawley called Biden’s remarks “utterly shameful” and “undignified, immature, and intemperate.”

Hawley said in a statement:

President-elect Biden has just compared me and another Republican Senator to Nazis. You read that correctly. Think about that for a moment. Let it sink in. Because I raised questions in the format prescribed by the laws of the United States about the way elections were conducted in the state of Pennsylvania, just as Democrats did about other states in 2001, 2005, and 2017, he is calling me a Nazi. This is undignified, immature, and intemperate behavior from the President-elect. It is utterly shameful. He should act like a dignified adult and retract these sick comments. And every Democrat member of Congress should be asked to disavow these disgusting comments.

Meanwhile, Cruz said that Biden’s comments only serve to further divide America, not promote healing or unity.

“Really sad. At a time of deep national division, President-elect Biden’s choice to call his political opponents literal Nazis does nothing to bring us together or promote healing. This kind of vicious partisan rhetoric only tears our country apart,” Cruz said.

Alt-right america first Far-right Intelwars Internet Joe Biden MAGA Make America Great Again President Donald Trump President joe biden

‘MAGA internet’ turns on President Donald Trump: reports

The “MAGA faithful,” or “MAGA internet,” according to a Friday Politico report, are reportedly turning on President Donald Trump after he appeared to acknowledge his defeat in the 2020 presidential election and called for political peace following Wednesday’s siege on the Capitol.

On Thursday, Trump
said in a video statement that he condemned the violence that took place Wednesday and put out a call for political peace.

“A new administration will be inaugurated on January 20th,” he said. “My focus now turns to ensuring a smooth, orderly and seamless transition of power. This moment calls for healing and reconciliation.”

What are the details?

The Politico report pointed out that many die-hard, online fans of the president turned on him as a result of his apparent concession and call for peace.

Nick Fuentes, host of “America First” podcast and the “unofficial leader of the white nationalist Groyper Army,”
tweeted that the president threw his supporters under the bus.

“People were willing to die for this man and he just threw them all under the bus,” he said. “That’s the only thing that’s shameful about the events of the past 36 hours. I’m sure the usual suspects suggested that this was a good idea, I hope Trump reverses course, for our sake.”

He wasn’t the only one with such feelings.

MAGA activist Cassandra Fairbanks
tweeted, “[Trump] tells angry people to march to the capitol [sic] [and then] proceeds to throw his supporters under the bus.”

She
added, “The movement matters more than a politician anyway.”

In a popular response, social media user Free the Truth added, “He could of [sic] mentioned the cold blooded murder of someone who risked their life for MAGA. The ONLY real violence that occurred. Instead he reads the script handed to him. He’s captured.”

Far-right activist and failed congressional candidate Laura Loomer — on Parler, according to Politico; she has been banned from Twitter — added, “It’s over. Life is about to become very hard for conservatives in America.”

The outlet added, “[T]here was anger [across social media]. It was directed at Trump for letting things get this far. Over on Parler … users erupted in a fury, calling him a number of expletives, a ‘dildo,’ and ‘100% THE SWAMP.'”

The outlet highlighted Twitter account We The Inevitable, which
addressed the president’s Thursday remarks.

“In no way did Trump say he conceded,” the tweet said. “He said: transitioning to a new Admin. As in, he gonna clear this one out and bring a new one. The words ‘I lost, I concede, congratulations Biden’ did NOT come out of his mouth.”

What else?

Over on Reddit, according to the Independent, user KAG_2020_BB castigated Trump, writing, “Get f***ed. Seriously. I am now saying it. F*** TRUMP. He’s disrespected everything we risked our lives for. I have a right to dislike Trump for this video … I respected Trump for everything he did for us, but he has now abandoned us and disrespected everything we believe in. I have a right to be angry. He can go f*** himself in this video.”

Reddit user ConfiscateTheCoats added, “F*** Donald Trump. This f***ing piece of s**t dragged us into DC for what? To leave us holding the bag? What the f***.”

User bck- responded, “Wow, what an absolute punch in the gut. He says it’s going to be wild, and when it gets wild, he calls it a heinous attack and middle-fingers to his supporters that he told to be there. Unbelievable.”

2021 capitol Capitol Police civil unrest democracy is mob rule Donald Trump election chaos electoral college Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden killing Muriel Bowsershooting Riots ruling class SLAVERY submission United States Unrest

It’s Over: Trump Promises “Orderly Transition” On Jan. 20 After Biden Win Certified

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge. 

Millions of Americans will remember Wednesday as the first time in decades that the US Capitol building was successfully stormed and overrun – though, to be fair, when the British sacked Washington during the War of 1812, they didn’t stop to take selfies with the Capitol Police.

At any rate, the flashes of the chaotic crowd breaking windows and scuffling with police, accompanied by the news that 4 people died during the chaos (1 woman was shot by a Capitol Police officer, while 3 others died during unspecified “medical emergencies”, according to media reports) was enough to convince half the US that a low-key “coup attempt” had just taken place. Though the fact that lawmakers returned to the floor a few hours later to finish up the certification vote sort of undercuts that notion.

Citing Wednesday’s unrest as justification, GOP lawmakers largely dropped their objections and allowed the Electoral College tally to be certified, cementing his win.

And as several staff members reportedly threatened to quit in protest, President Trump published a statement via spokesman Dan Scavino promising an “orderly transition” on Jan. 20. While Bloomberg described the statement as a “concession”, Trump continued to insist that he still “totally disagrees” with the outcome of the election.

“Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th,” Trump said. “I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”

Matt Pottinger, a deputy natsec advisor, and an avowed China hawk is reportedly among the staffers who resigned in protest. Pottinger was recently in the news for going public with new, credible allegations that SARS-CoV-2 leaked from a Chinese lab.

Meanwhile, the president’s twitter account remains locked.

Snapchat joined Facebook and Twitter in blocking the accounts, according to a company spokesman.

Before the vote in the Senate, VP Pence spoke to promise that those who contributed to the chaos will be prosecuted. According to Capitol Police, some 52 people were arrested.

“To those who wreaked havoc in our capitol today, you did not win,” the vice president said. “Violence never wins. Freedom wins. And this is still the people’s House.”

Of the 52 arrests, 47 were related to violations of the 1800 curfew set by Mayor Muriel Bowser. 26 people were arrested on Capitol grounds. Several others were arrested for carrying firearms, either without a license or unlawfully.

In addition, the DC police chief said two pipe bombs were recovered from the headquarters of the RNC and DNC, while a cooler from a vehicle on US Capitol grounds that contained Molotov cocktails. 14 police officers were injured, 2 of whom remain hospitalized after being attacked by members of the crowd. Police said more arrests are expected as investigators will now attempt to identify people from camera footage.

The vote in the Senate was completed early Thursday morning. One senator told reporters that she had backed away from the opposition vote because of the chaos.

“When I arrived in Washington this morning, I fully intended to object to the certification of the electoral votes,” Sen. Kelly Loeffler, who was supposed to take the lead on objecting to results from Georgia, said on the Senate floor Wednesday night. “However, the events that have transpired today have forced me to reconsider, and I cannot now in good conscience object to the certification of these electors.”

By the end of the proceedings, both the House and the Senate had rejected challenges to results in Arizona and Pennsylvania, while no senators signed on to challenges in Georgia and other states.

The FBI late Wednesday asked the public to submit tips, such as images, videos, and other information to help agents identify people who were “actively instigating violence.”

During what several media outlets described as a “siege”, at least one Trump supporter entered the Senate chamber, while others smashed windows in an attempt to break onto the House floor, where police officers brandished guns to keep them away. Police placed the building under lockdown, and lawmakers were instructed to prepare to put on gas masks as pepper spray filled the chamber.

Meanwhile, in keeping with the media narrative that Trump supporters aren’t proud Americans but crypto-fascists hoping to trample on democracy, Joe Biden – speaking from Delaware – said the Capitol’s storming bordered on “sedition” and called “on the mob to pull back and allow the work of the democracy to go forward.”

Though the chaos has subsided, Mayor Bowser’s public emergency declaration will remain in effect for 15 days, allowing her to impose restrictions on people’s movement.

25th Amendment Inauguration Day Intelwars Joe Biden Muriel bowser President Donald Trump Public emergency state of emergency

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser extends public emergency through end of Trump’s time in the White House

Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) has extended her declaration of a public emergency for an additional 15 days — through inauguration day.

Bowser’s move comes after rioters breached the D.C.’s Capitol building, causing destruction and mayhem, in protest of Wednesday’s Electoral College certification. She also declared a curfew to begin at 6 p.m. local time on Wednesday in response to the storming of the Capitol.

What are the details?

According to WTTG-TV, the declaration will allow Bowser to call a curfew at any time between Wednesday and through Inauguration Day. Bowser shared a portion of the order on Twitter, writing, “I have issued Mayor’s Order 2021-003 extending the public emergency declared earlier today for a total of 15 days, until and unless provided for by further Mayoral Order.”

According to the declaration, the order is expected to end on Jan. 21 at 3 p.m. local time.

President-elect Joe Biden will be inaugurated on Jan. 20.

A portion of Bowser’s order states, “Today, First Amendment protests turned violent. Many persons came to the District armed and for the purpose of engaging in violence and destruction and have engaged in violence and destruction. They have fired chemical irritants, bricks, bottles, and guns. They have breached the security of the Capitol and their destructive and riotous behavior has the potential to spread beyond the Capitol.”

“Their motivation is ongoing,” the order continued. “Today, they sought to disrupt the Congressional proceedings relating to the acceptance of electoral college votes.”

According to a report from The Hill, D.C. City Administrator Kevin Donahue was given authorization to implement such measures that are “necessary or appropriate to protect persons and property in the District of Columbia from the conditions caused by this public emergency.”

“This order gives multiple D.C. leaders such as the City Administrator, Deputy Mayor and Chief Financial Officer the authority to apply for assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in order to ‘recoup expenditures incurred, or obtain funding needed, under this order,'” the outlet adds.

2020 election fraud allegations Donald Trump electoral college Intelwars Joe Biden Mitch McConnell Senate speech watch

Mitch McConnell implores fellow senators to not attempt to overturn Electoral College win for Joe Biden

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told his colleagues Wednesday that they should not attempt to overturn the Electoral College victory for President-elect Joe Biden.

What are the details?

“This will be the most important vote I’ve ever cast,” McConnell said at the outset of a sober speech delivered from the Senate floor, adding that he supported President Donald Trump’s desire to contest the election results, which were mired in controversy and hit with numerous charges of fraud.

But McConnell added that after recounts and court proceedings, the results stood — and therefore the outcome must be accepted and supported.

“Every election we know features some illegality and irregularity, and, of course, that’s unacceptable,” he said. “I support strong state-led voting reforms. Last year’s bizarre pandemic procedures must not become the new norm. But, my colleagues, nothing before us proves illegality anywhere near the massive scale — the massive scale that would have tipped the entire election, nor can public doubt alone justify a radical break when the doubt itself was incited without any evidence.”

He added that Congress members have a “limited role” when it comes to election results: “We cannot simply declare ourselves a national board of elections on steroids. The voters, the courts, and the states have all spoken. They’ve all spoken. If we overrule them, it would damage our republic forever. … If this election were overturned by mere allegations from the losing side, our democracy would enter a death spiral. We would never see the whole nation accept an election again. Every four years would be a scramble for power at any cost.”

McConnell continued, “The Electoral College, which most of us on this side have been defending for years, would cease to exist, leaving many of our states with no real say at all in choosing a president.”

In one of the more stirring moments of his address, McConnell observed that “we cannot keep drifting apart into two separate tribes with a separate set of facts and separate realities with nothing in common except our hostility toward each other and mistrust for the few national institutions that we all still share.”

Democrats don’t get off the hook

McConnell didn’t let Democrats off the hook either, for contesting Electoral College results as recently as in the aftermaths of the 2000, 2004, and 2016 elections.

“After 2004, a senator joined and forced the same debate, and believe it or not, Democrats like Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, and Hillary Clinton … praised them and applauded the stunt,” he recalled. “Republicans condemned those baseless efforts back then, and we just spent four years condemning Democrats’ shameful attacks on the validity of President Trump’s own election.”

More from his speech:

So look, there can be no double standard. The media that is outraged today spent four years aiding and abetting Democrats’ attacks on our institutions after they lost. But we must not imitate and escalate what we repudiate. Our duty is to govern for the public good. The United States Senate has a higher calling than an endless spiral of partisan vengeance. Congress will either override the voters, overrule them — the voters, the states, and the courts — for the first time ever or honor the people’s decision.

We’ll either guarantee Democrats’ delegitimizing efforts after 2016 become a permanent new routine for both sides or declare that our nation deserves a lot better than this. We’ll either hasten down a poisonous path where only the winners of [an] election actually accept the results, or show we can still muster the patriotic courage that our forebears showed not only in victory but in defeat.

McConnell concluded, “It would be unfair and wrong to disenfranchise American voters and overrule the courts and the states on this extraordinarily thin basis. And I will not pretend such a vote would be a harmless protest gesture while relying on others to do the right thing. I will vote to respect the people’s decision and defend our system of government as we know it.”

Donald Trump Electoral college certification Electoral college objection Intelwars Joe Biden republican senators us senate

Electoral College objection divides Senate GOP: Here’s where everyone stands

As Congress prepares to certify the results of the Electoral College on Wednesday, a group of Republican senators have declared their intention to object to accepting President-elect Joe Biden as the winner.

Their objection, while unlikely to prevent Congress from accepting Biden as the victor and the next president of the United States, will trigger hours of debate in Congress about the merits of allegations of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election and will culminate in a vote that will divide the Republican Conference.

So far, 38 of 51 Republican senators who will have a vote on Wednesday have gone on the record about where they stand. Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) will not participate in the Electoral College certification Wednesday because his term ended Sunday. If he wins re-election, the results of his election will not be certified before Congress votes. Sen. Kelly Loeffler, (R-Ga.) on the other hand is running in a special election to complete the term of retired Sen. Jonny Isakson (R-Ga.), so she will have a vote even though her election is on the same day as Perdue’s.

Those in favor of objecting

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) was the first to declare his intention to object to the Electoral College vote, calling out the state of Pennsylvania for, in his words, failing to “follow their own state election laws” and accusing “mega corporations” including Facebook and Twitter of interfering in the election.

Later, a group of 11 Republican senators led by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) announced they would object as well. They issued a joint statement on Saturday citing widespread allegations of voter fraud as reason to appoint an Electoral Commission to investigate the 2020 election and conduct an emergency 10-day audit of the returns.

“A fair and credible audit-conducted expeditiously and completed well before January 20-would dramatically improve Americans’ faith in our electoral process and would significantly enhance the legitimacy of whoever becomes our next President. We owe that to the People,” the senators said.

“These are matters worthy of the Congress, and entrusted to us to defend. We do not take this action lightly. We are acting not to thwart the democratic process, but rather to protect it. And every one of us should act together to ensure that the election was lawfully conducted under the Constitution and to do everything we can to restore faith in our Democracy.”

The senators who joined this statement include Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), James Lankford (R-Okla.), Steve Daines (R-Mont.), John Kennedy (R-La.), Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Mike Braun (R-Ind.), Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.), Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), Bill Hagerty (R-Tenn.), and Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.).

Also, Loeffler, who is running for re-election in a run-off against Democratic candidate, the Rev. Raphael Warnock, that will be decided Tuesday, released a statement Monday lending her support to the objection effort.

“The American people deserve a platform in Congress, permitted under the Constitution, to have election issues presented so that they can be addressed,” Loeffler said. “That’s why, on January 6th, I will vote to give President Trump and the American people the fair hearing they deserve and support the objection to the Electoral College certification process.”

That makes 13 Republican senators so far who will object to the Electoral College results from battleground states disputed by President Donald Trump’s campaign.

Those opposed to objecting

They are met with opposition from at least 25 of their colleagues, several of which have raised constitutional concerns about whether lawmakers have the ability to disregard election results certified by the states at all.

Four Republican senators including Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Bill Cassidy (R-La.), and Mitt Romney (R-Utah) joined Democrats in a statement calling for Congress to certify Biden as the winner of the election.

“The voters have spoken, and Congress must now fulfill its responsibility to certify the election results,” the senators said collectively.

Romney issued an additional statement on Jan. 3 condemning Cruz and the co-signers of his statement for their “egregious ploy to reject electors,” accusing them of dangerously threatening the republic.

“President Trump’s lawyers made their case before scores of courts; in every instance, they failed. The Justice Department found no evidence of irregularity sufficient to overturn the election. The Presidential Voter Fraud Commission disbanded without finding such evidence,” Romney said.

My fellow Senator Ted Cruz and the co-signers of his statement argue that rejection of electors or an election audit directed by Congress would restore trust in the election. Nonsense. This argument ignores the widely perceived reality that Congress is an overwhelmingly partisan body; the American people wisely place greater trust in the federal courts where judges serve for life. Members of Congress who would substitute their own partisan judgement for that of the courts do not enhance public trust, they imperil it.

Were Congress to actually reject state electors, partisans would inevitably demand the same any time their candidate had lost. Congress, not voters in the respective states, would choose our presidents.

Adding to this ill-conceived endeavor by some in Congress is the President’s call for his supporters to come to the Capitol on the day when this matter is to be debated and decided. This has the predictable potential to lead to disruption, and worse.

I could never have imagined seeing these things in the greatest democracy in the world. Has ambition so eclipsed principle?

The following are statements from other GOP senators who will oppose the effort to object to the Electoral College vote, as collected by the Washington Post:

Sen. John Boozman (R-Ark.): “Not one of the lawsuits filed found evidence of widespread fraud or irregularities that would have changed the outcome of the election. Similarly, not a single state’s outcome changed as a result of requested recounts. Objecting to certified electoral votes submitted by the states will have no impact on the result of the election either. We cannot erode the ideals that generations of Americans have fought to protect simply because we do not like the outcome of the election.”

Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.): “I am a conservative Republican. Therefore, I must strictly adhere to the United States Constitution. The Constitution clearly limits the role of Congress with respect to presidential elections to the counting of electoral votes that have been certified by the states. The states, consistent with the principles of federalism and a limited national government, possess the sole authority to determine and submit their electors. To vote to reject these state-certified electoral votes would be to act outside the bounds of the Constitution, which I will not do.”

Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.): “As I read the Constitution, there is no constitutionally viable means for the Congress to overturn an election wherein the states have certified and sent their Electors. Some of my colleagues believe they have found a path, and while our opinions differ, I do not doubt their good intentions to take steps towards stamping out voter fraud. Importantly, I disagree with their method both in principle and in practice. For their theory to work, Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats would have to elect Donald Trump president rather than Joe Biden. That it is not going to happen, not today or any other day.”

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska): “I swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and that is what I will do January 6 — just as I strive to do every day as I serve the people of Alaska. I will vote to affirm the 2020 presidential election. The courts and state legislatures have all honored their duty to hear legal allegations and have found nothing to warrant overturning the results. I urge my colleagues from both parties to recognize this and to join me in maintaining confidence in the Electoral College and our elections so that we ensure we have the continues trust of the American people.”

Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.): “At the end of the day, it’s time to move on. We need the electoral college to do its work. It’s an integral part of our constitution.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.): Cotton said that he shares “the concerns of many Arkansans about irregularities in the presidential election” and will therefore support “a commission to study the last election and propose reforms to protect the integrity of our elections.” However, he opposes an effort by Congress to overturn the results of the election.

“… the Founders entrusted our elections chiefly to the states—not Congress. They entrusted the election of our president to the people, acting through the Electoral College—not Congress. And they entrusted the adjudication of election disputes to the courts—not Congress. Under the Constitution and federal law, Congress’s power is limited to counting electoral votes submitted by the states.

“If Congress purported to overturn the results of the Electoral College, it would not only exceed that power, but also establish unwise precedents. …

“Thus, I will not oppose the counting of certified electoral votes on January 6.”

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.): “Many of us hoped that the presidential election would yield a different result, but our system of government has processes to determine who will be sworn in on Jan. 20. The electoral college has spoken. So today, I want to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden. The president-elect is no stranger to the Senate. He’s devoted himself to public service for many years.”

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine): “It’s not an effort that I’m going to support. And right now, I’m going to go get sworn in to my fifth term, making history as the first Republican woman senator ever to be elected to a fifth term, and making Maine history by being the first Maine senator since popular election to be elected to a fifth term. So I’m gonna enjoy that for a bit first.”

Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.): “We’ve now gone through the constitutional process and the electors have voted, so there’s a president-elect.”

Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.): “I think the overwhelming weight of the evidence is that Joe Biden defeated my candidate, Donald Trump, and I have to live with it.”

Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.): Responding to a question on whether he would join Hawley’s effort to object, Burr said, “no.”

Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.): “While I share the concerns of those who plan to object, the Founding Fathers did not design a system where the federal legislative branch could reject a state’s certified choice for President in favor of their own … I do not have the authority to overturn the will of other states on behalf of North Dakota, nor do other members have the ability to overturn the will of my state. …

“In light of these concerns, I will not object to the Electoral College votes when they are counted, and — unless overwhelmingly persuasive evidence is presented before the Senate when we debate the objections – I will not vote to reject the results.”

Sen. John Hoeven (R-N.D.): “The people of North Dakota do not want Congress to determine their vote, and we should not set the precedent by doing it for other states. Therefore, I do not plan to object.”

Sen. Deb Fischer (R-Neb.): “I look forward to working with President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris to keep our nation safe, update our infrastructure, and provide opportunities to families,” she said in a letter to a constituent.

Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.): “We have a bunch of ambitious politicians who think there’s a quick way to tap into the president’s populist base without doing any real, long-term damage. But they’re wrong – and this issue is bigger than anyone’s personal ambitions. Adults don’t point a loaded gun at the heart of legitimate self-government.”

Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio): “The orderly transfer of power is a hallmark of our democracy, and although I supported President Trump, the Electoral College vote today makes clear that Joe Biden is now President-Elect.”

Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.): “My job on Wednesday is clear, and there are only two things I am permitted to do under the Constitution: ensure the electors are properly certified and count the electoral votes, even when I disagree with the outcome. To challenge a state’s certification, given how specific the Constitution is, would be a violation of my oath of office — that is not something I am willing to do and is not something Oklahomans would want me to do.”

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.): “I intend to vigorously defend our form of government by opposing this effort to disenfranchise millions of voters in my state and others.”

Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.): “Vice President Biden is the president-elect based on the electoral count.”

Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.): On how the vote on the objection will turn out: “It’s going down like a shot dog.”

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas): “There’s good constitutional and other legal grounds to say: You had your day in court, 60 different lawsuits in state courts, you had a chance to appeal those to the Supreme Court, and as I read the law once a state certifies its electoral vote it’s conclusive.”

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah): “… with respect to presidential elections, there is no authority for Congress to make value judgments in the abstract regarding any state’s election laws or the manner in which they have been implemented.”

Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.): “Several of my congressional colleagues have made clear their plans to object to counting certified electoral votes from certain states. I will oppose their effort because the will of voters in each state—not political considerations or the individual preferences of senators and representatives—must determine the winner of the presidential election.”

And the rest

There are 13 Republican senators who have not definitively stated their position ahead of Wednesday

Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) have each released statements indicating they will listen to the debate and cast their votes after considering what those objecting have to say. According to the Washington Post, Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) acknowledged that Biden is the “presumptive president-elect” but did not comment on the effort to object to the Electoral College results.

The remaining 10 Republicans, Sens. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Rick Scott (R-Fla.), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Mike Crapo (R-Id.), Jim Risch (R-Id.), Todd Young (R-Ind.), Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.), and Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wy.) have not made their intentions clear.

Black Lives Matter chaos clashes divided Donald Trump election chaos federal forces groups Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden left vs. right paradigm lie MAGA Mayor Muriel bowser national guard called in Politicians Rally ruling class Soldiers Stop the steal tensions troops Trump Supporters Violence washington dc

Mayor of DC Reuested National Guard Presence at Wednesday’s MAGA Rally

Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has requested National Guard troops to be present during Wednesday’s “Stop the Steal” rally in support of President Donald Trump. Bowser has also urged residents to avoid downtown as Trump supporters plan to descend on the United States capital to protest the certification of Joe Biden’s election victory.

The presence of the military during a rally is definitely a ramping up of tensions. However, ironically, the mayor made no such call for military help when Black Lives Matter protesters set fires, vandalized national monuments, and hurled rocks and bottles of urine at Secret Service agents earlier this year, as RT pointed out.

In fact, Bowser in June called on Trump to withdraw National Guard soldiers and other federal forces who had been deployed to help quell riots at the time.

“This Quickly Escalates Into Open Warfare” – Why The Government Is Preparing For Post-Election Chaos

Bowser’s office told media outlets on Monday that she had asked the National Guard to send about 340 unarmed troops to help District of Columbia police and firefighters to manage demonstrations by supporters of President Trump, but noted only 115 would be deployed at once. The mayor advised Washington residents to stay out of the downtown area and refrain from engaging with protesters who come to our city seeking confrontation.”

But some have been reminding the mayor of which groups have been notorious for violence and destruction.

The mayor has often sided with destructive and violent groups. She renamed a street in front of the White House Black Lives Matter Plaza and ordered that the BLM slogan be painted on the pavement in giant letters. Some people are rightly pointing out her cowardice and hypocrisy.

Perhaps the national guard presence is more about the possible confrontation between the two divided political factions, and less about who throws the first punch.  Hopefully, people start to figure out who is keeping the public divided so they can enslave them. Spoiler: It’s the ruling class, aka, politicians like Muriel Bowser.
