Donald Trump IMPEACHMENT Impeachment trial Intelwars Maxine Waters President Trump Trump Impeachment Trump impeachment trial

Maxine Waters said Trump ‘absolutely should be charged with premeditated murder’

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said that former President Donald Trump should “absolutely” be charged with premeditated murder for the Capitol riots on Jan. 6.

During a Tuesday interview with MSNBC host Joy Reid, Waters claimed without evidence that Trump “had advance planning about the invasion that took place in our Capitol.”

Waters also made another accusation, “There’s information that some of the planning came out of individuals working in this campaign.”

“As a matter of fact, he absolutely should be charged with premeditated murder because of the lives that were lost with this invasion with his insurrection,” Waters said of Trump. “We have to fight as hard as we can to see to it that there’s some justice.”

Waters continued, “For the president of the United States to sit and watch the invasion and the insurrection and not say a word because he knew he had absolutely initiated it – and as some of them said, ‘He invited us to come. We’re here at the invitation of the president of the United States.'”

In January, Waters called for Trump to be impeached for a second time because he is “capable of starting a civil war.”

“This president has spent four years abusing his power, lying, embracing authoritarianism [and] radicalizing his supporters against democracy,” Waters said last month on the House floor. “This corruption poisoned the minds of his supporters, inciting them to willingly join white supremacists, neo-Nazis and paramilitary extremists in a siege of the United States Capitol building, the very seat of American democracy.”

Waters called Trump “the worst president in the history of the United States.”

“This president intends to exercise power long after he is out of office …,” she said, “we should be concerned that the Republicans will not defend him and he is capable of starting a civil war. He must be impeached. He must be stopped now.”

Waters has her own history of spouting political rhetoric that could be considered inciting dangerous confrontations.

In June 2018, Waters delivered a fiery speech where she called on her followers to harass staffers of the Trump administration.

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Waters commanded.

In September 2018, Waters talked about her controversial command to harass Trump Cabinet members, and said, “I did not threaten [Trump] constituents and supporters. I do that all the time, but I didn’t do that that time.”

Andrew Cuomo Capitol riots Intelwars Maxine Waters Maxine waters inciting violence Maxine waters quote Maxine waters speech President Trump Twitter Viral tweets

Twitter troll tricks Democrats into being outraged over Maxine Waters’ ‘dangerous’ quote against Trump administration

Democrats are completely outraged over a fake quote from Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters. A Twitter troll replaced Waters’ original tweet that targeted Trump administration staffers with Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Democrats took the bait and called Waters’ words “dangerous” and many said it was “inciting violence.”

In June 2018, Waters delivered a fiery speech where she called for members of the “Resistance” to harass staffers of the Trump administration.

“History will record while he tried to step on all of us, we kicked him in his rear and step on him,” Waters bellowed. “If you think we’re rallying now, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!”

“Already, you have members of your Cabinet that are being booed out of restaurants…who have protesters taking up at their house, who say, ‘No peace, no sleep! No peace, no sleep!” Waters said, referencing Trump’s former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen being intimidated by socialists at a Mexican restaurant.

“God is on our side,” Waters proclaimed. “Let’s stay the course!”

“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” she yelled to rile the crowd into a frenzy.

Waters then zeroed in on then-President Donald Trump, “Mr. President, we will see you every day, every hour of the day, everywhere that we are to let you know you cannot get away with this!”

Twitter user @CuomoWatch took a portion of the congresswoman’s speech, but altered it slightly to target the Cuomo administration instead of Trump’s Cabinet.

“If you see anybody from the Cuomo Administration in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” the now-viral tweet said.

Democrats, who are obviously not familiar with Waters’ tempestuous tirade, immediately condemned the threatening words, likely assuming the menacing comments were made by Republicans or Trump supporters.

New York Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) fell for the fake quote, “This is encouraging violence against public officials – plain & simple. Absolutely disgusting. No tolerance for this. Haven’t we learned the lessons from Washington D.C. just weeks ago?”

Former Pete Buttigieg adviser Lis Smith wrote, “Way way way over the line. Especially in light of what happened at the Capitol on Jan 6.”

Democratic New York City Councilwoman Debi Rose reacted by saying, “Really? Did we not learn anything from the Capitol insurrection? We must condemn violence and harassment in any form. #StopTheViolence #MobMentality.”

Democratic City Council Member Keith Powers said, “There are plenty of strong opinions and online angst these days, but there is no place for inciting violence or threatening people. This tweet should be removed ASAP. Full stop.”

Democratic Senator for the 36th District of the New York Senate Jamaal T. Bailey tweeted, “This is more than tonedeaf, especially considering what’s happened in recent days. This is unacceptable and ridiculous. Read the room.”

Democratic member of the New York State Assembly Daniel Rosenthal said, “This is dangerous and unacceptable, especially after what happened in DC. Encouraging this kind of violence is unacceptable.”

Democratic County Executive of Suffolk County Steve Bellone declared, “Democrats and Republicans must denounce this threat of violence against our fellow New Yorkers. After the Capitol riots, I call on @Twitter to ban this account immediately.”

Former Democratic Speaker of the New York City Council Christine Quinn exclaimed, “This is dangerous and outrageous!”

Democratic County Executive of Nassau County Laura Curran was also fooled by the fake quote, “No matter your political party or beliefs, this is completely unacceptable. Nassau County has zero tolerance for hatred and inciting violence.”

Democratic Speaker of the New York State Assembly Carl E. Heastie wrote, “This is appalling and dangerous. Encouraging violence must never be tolerated. Shame on whoever is behind this kind of garbage.”

Democratic Assembly Member for the 42nd District of the New York State Assembly Rodneyse Bichotte was duped, “Threatening government officials & their staff is a crime for which there is a ZERO tolerance policy in Brooklyn & anywhere else. I condemn this tweet & the violence it incites, especially following the insurrection we just experienced at the capitol.”

Democratic Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan wrote on Twitter, “This kind of dangerous rhetoric must be called out and condemned by all. Or else we risk repeating the horrendous events of Jan 6th. As leaders, especially in a time of such great challenge, it’s incumbent on all of us to appeal to the ‘better angels of our nature.”

Democratic member of the New York State Senate Todd Kaminsky said, “Completely unacceptable. Haven’t we learned the hard lesson that incitements to violence like this actually result in violence? There is no room for this in our discourse. None.”

Luis A. Miranda, Jr. said, “You don’t like the Governor, you vote him out. After the terrorist attack on our Capitol, threats, of any kind, especially as the right is targeting state capitals, are dangerous. And to target staff? Not cool.”

Democratic Speaker of the New York City Council Corey Johnson stated, “The terrifying events of the last month have shown us more clearly than ever that words have consequences. This sort of targeting and incitement is simply wrong, and totally unacceptable.”

Democrats finally condemn Maxine Waters’ dangerous rhetoric, two years later, and only after they thought it was a Republican saying it.

Biden executive actions Biden executive orders Biden presidential actions Executive Orders Intelwars President joe biden President Trump

Flashback: Before signing 37 executive actions? Biden said, ‘We need consensus,’ and dictators rule by executive orders

President Joe Biden has signed 24 executive orders and 37 presidential actions in his first week in power. However, during his campaign run, Biden contradictorily stated that democracy needs “consensus” of the people, and those who govern by executive orders are “dictators.”

On Oct. 15, only weeks before the election, then-candidate Joe Biden participated in an ABC News town hall at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. Biden and ABC News host George Stephanopoulos discussed raising the corporate tax and increasing taxes on the wealthy.

Stephanopoulos asked if Biden’s tax increases will happen soon after he gets in office, and he responded, “I’ve got to get the votes. I got to get the votes.”

“I have this strange notion. We are a democracy,” Biden said with a smirk.

“Some of my Republican friends and some of my Democratic friends even occasionally say, ‘Well, if you can’t get the votes by executive order, you’re going to do something.’ Things you can’t do by executive order unless you’re a dictator,” Biden enunciated.

“We’re a democracy,” Biden proclaimed at the time. “We need consensus.”

Flash forward to his first week in office, and President Biden has signed a flurry of executive orders, many of which reverse former President Donald Trump’s policies. Biden’s executive actions have targeted climate change, the coronavirus pandemic, mask mandates, travel bans, immigration, student loans, transgender issues, and the Keystone XL pipeline.

The number of presidential actions has been unprecedented, as noted by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).

Last week, Rubio blasted President Biden over the barrage of executive orders he had signed.

“Number one, he has issued more executive fiats than anyone in such a short period of time, ever,” Rubio said. “More than Obama, more than Trump, anyone.”

In the first week of their presidencies, here’s how many executive orders the last eight presidents had issued:

  • President Joe Biden: 24 executive orders
  • President Donald Trump: 4 executive orders
  • President Barack Obama: 5 executive orders
  • President George W. Bush: 0 executive orders
  • President Bill Clinton: 2 executive orders
  • President George H.W. Bush: 1 executive order
  • President Ronald Reagan: 0 executive orders
  • President Jimmy Carter: 1 executive order

In his first two days as president, Biden had already signed more executive orders than Trump did in nearly two months in office, according to The Economist.

Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee slammed Biden for the explosion of presidential actions out of the gate.

“30 executive orders and actions signed in only 3 days’ time,” Blackburn tweeted on Tuesday.

“@POTUS, you can’t govern with a pen and a phone,” Blackburn said, a reference to former President Barack Obama’s notable quote from 2014 about using executive orders to advance his agenda in spite of an uncooperating Congress.

Here is how many executive orders past presidents have issued in their time at the White House:

  • President Donald Trump: 220 executive orders (1 Term) – 55 per year
  • President Barack Obama: 276 executive orders (2 Terms) – 35 per year
  • President George W. Bush: 291 executive orders (2 Terms) – 36 per year
  • President Bill Clinton: 364 executive orders (2 Terms) – 46 per year
  • President George H.W. Bush: 166 executive orders (1 Term) – 42 per year
  • President Ronald Reagan: 381 executive orders (2 Terms) – 48 per year
  • President Jimmy Carter: 320 executive orders (1 Term) – 80 per year

Banking Capitol riots Deutsche Bank Donald Trump Donald trump bank Florida IMPEACHMENT Intelwars President Trump

Four banks have reportedly severed ties with Donald Trump since the Capitol riots

At least four financial institutions have severed ties with former President Donald Trump since the Capitol riots, according to reports.

On Friday, Florida-based BankUnited announced it was ending its relationship with Trump, as reported by the Miami Herald. The Miami-area bank noted that Trump didn’t receive any loans from them.

“We never had a lending relationship with Donald Trump and we no longer have any depository relationship with him,” a bank representative said in an emailed statement.

Financial records reveal that Trump held two money-market accounts worth more than $5.1 million at BankUnited.

Two weeks ago, Coral Gables-located Professional Holding Corp. announced that it would no longer furnish banking services to the former president or the Trump Organization.

“Professional Bank has decided not to engage in any further business with the Trump Organization and its affiliates, and will be winding down the relationship effective immediately,” Professional Holding Corp. spokesperson Eric Kalis told Fortune.

Professional Holding Corp. reportedly loaned $11.2 million to Trump’s family in 2018 to purchase a property next to Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach. The banking institution also held a money-market account valued between $5 million and $25 million in Trump’s name.

Less than a week after the chaos at the Capitol, two of Trump’s biggest lenders ditched him following the controversy. Frankfort-based Deutsche Bank, which has reportedly $340 million in loans outstanding to the Trump Organization, said they would no longer do business with the former president or his companies.

Christiana Riley, who is head of Deutsche Bank’s U.S. operations, issued a statement following the riots at the U.S. Capitol building.

“We are proud of our Constitution and stand by those who seek to uphold it to ensure that the will of the people is upheld and a peaceful transition of power takes place,” Riley wrote.

New York-based Signature Bank also ended its relationship with Trump. The banking institution closed two of Trump’s personal accounts worth approximately $5.3 million, according to Bloomberg, citing two people with knowledge on the matter.

Signature Bank also called for then-President Trump to resign before his term officially ended on Jan. 20.

“We believe the appropriate action would be the resignation of the president of the United States, which is in the best interests of our nation and the American people,” the bank said in a statement on Jan. 11. “We have never before commented on any political matter and hope to never do so again.”

The report also stated that Signature Bank would not do any business in the future with members of Congress who voted to not certify the Electoral College results.

Senate Majority Leader Schumer (D-N.Y.) said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will deliver an article of impeachment against Trump to the Senate on Monday.

Dark money Dark money donations Dark money politics Intelwars Joe Biden political donations President Biden President Trump

Biden reeled in more ‘dark money’ than any other candidate in history, majorly outpaced Trump donations: report

President Joe Biden received a record-breaking amount of “dark money” from anonymous contributors that helped propel him into the White House. A Bloomberg report found that the Biden campaign accepted more dark money than any other presidential candidate in American history.

During the 2020 presidential campaign, Biden reportedly reeled in a record-breaking $145 million, topping the previous record of $113 million that Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) received in his failed 2012 presidential bid against Barack Obama.

Former President Donald Trump’s dark money donations majorly dwarfed Biden’s, and he purportedly only received $28.4 million from anonymous donors.

A report from CNN in late November stated, “More than $320 million of so-called ‘dark money’ helped boost Democrats in the White House and congressional races — more than double the anonymous dollars that aided Republicans in this year’s federal elections, a new analysis shows.”

“It’s not surprising that Biden set the mark given that the $1.5 billion he hauled in overall was the most ever for a challenger to an incumbent president,” Yahoo News reported.

Meredith McGehee, the executive director of campaign finance reform advocacy group Issue One, told Bloomberg, “The whole point of dark money is to avoid public disclosure while getting private credit.”

Open Secrets, the self-proclaimed “most comprehensive resource for federal campaign contributions, lobbying data and analysis available anywhere,” defines dark money as “spending meant to influence political outcomes where the source of the money is not disclosed.”

The South China Morning Post said Biden’s campaign had previously “called for banning some types of non-profits from spending money to influence elections and requiring that any organization spending more than $10,000 to influence elections to register with the FEC and disclose its donors.”

Amy Kurtz, executive director of the left-leaning nonprofit Sixteen Thirty Fund, said, “We have lobbied in favor of reform to the current campaign finance system, but we remain equally committed to following the current laws to level the playing field for progressives.”

Despite running a super-PAC supporting Biden, Even Cecil said her group supports campaign finance reform, “We still look forward to the day when unlimited money and super- PACs are a thing of the past.”

Democrats enjoyed a record-breaking third quarter of 2020 where the political party raised $1.5 billion through left-leaning crowd-funding website ActBlue over three months, according to Politico.

A Biden spokesman did not immediately respond to requests for comment by Bloomberg.

Alec Baldwin Intelwars President Trump Saturday Night Live SNL Twitter Twitter reactions

Alec Baldwin dreamed President Trump was tried for ‘sedition’ with a makeshift noose outside courthouse

Alec Baldwin revealed on Friday that he had a macabre vision involving President Donald Trump. The actor, who has played Trump on “Saturday Night Live” since October 2016 and even won a Primetime Emmy Award for his over-the-top portrayal, dreamed about the president being on trial for sedition.

“I had a dream Trump was on trial for sedition. And outside the courthouse, a noose was hung from a makeshift scaffold,” Baldwin tweeted. “The noose was made of recycled COVID masks.”

Baldwin appears to be placing blame for the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol building solely on Trump.

This isn’t the first time that Baldwin has fantasized about violence against Trump. In December, Baldwin wrote on Twitter about the various ways that Trump could be physically ripped out of the White House.

“Who arrests Trump if he refuses to concede? Who drags him out? Pepper spray? Cuffs? A knee on his neck, cutting off his oxygen? Does he wheeze ‘I can’t breathe.’ Just whale away on him like a piñata? Rodney King style? The thug who has destroyed the country. What does he deserve?” Baldwin said.

In November, Baldwin dreamt about the death of Trump.

“Bury Trump in a Nazi graveyard and put a swastika on his grave,” Baldwin stated. “The majority of Americans made the right choice. Trump is a maniac.”

Baldwin has also had thoughts about shockingly disturbing brutality towards Republican Sen. Ted Cruz.

“Put Ted Cruz in the stocks and throw rotten fruit and buckets of horse piss at him,” Baldwin wrote on Jan. 6. “Then ride him on a rail. Then tar and feather him. And film it. For Netflix.”

Last February, Baldwin compared Republican senators to enablers of murderous Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.

“You wonder how Hitler took control of a once great country,” the “SNL” actor tweeted. “For those of you too young to recall the War or its aftermath, simply watch how this GOP-controlled Senate behaves. Their sniveling fealty and lack of courage. And you begin to get it.”

Baldwin capped off his career of impersonating Trump this week with a 42-minute audiobook titled “Hasta la Vista, America: Trump’s Farewell Address.” The final appearance “encompasses a parody of a Farewell Address, 2021 State of the Union Address and a preview of an imagined blockbuster presidential memoir, along with music and sound effects,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“I was only interested in doing Trump, again, in any form, if it was with Kurt, who’s the greatest political satirist as far as I’m concerned,” Baldwin said of Kurt Andersen, the writer of the audiobook.

Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria Baldwin, was hit with allegations that she lied for years about her Spanish heritage last month.

Campus Censorship Dan crenshaw Harvard Intelwars Kayleigh McEnany President Trump Ted Cruz

Students demand Harvard revoke diplomas of Trump allies

A group of students are demanding Harvard University revoke the degrees earned by Trump allies and aides. A petition by Harvard students insists that the Ivy League institution rescind the diplomas to anyone who supported challenging the 2020 presidential election results.

“Harvard must revoke the degrees of alumni whose incendiary language and subversion of democratic processes—rooted in a history of white supremacist voter suppression—incited the violent insurrection on January 6,” the petition stated. “This includes all who have used their platforms to deny the validity of the presidential election. They do not and should not represent a university committed to ‘strengthening democracy’ and ‘the advancement of justice.'”

Fox Business published the document titled: “Petition to revoke the degrees of Harvard graduates implicated in the January 6 Capitol Insurrection.” The petition argued, “A Harvard degree is a privilege, not a right.”

“The campaign to subvert the outcome of the 2020 presidential election left five dead and nearly killed many more armed, organized insurrectionists with Confederate flags and Nazi paraphernalia stormed the Capitol in search of members of Congress to kill or capture. Nationwide violence is expected in the weeks to come,” the petition stated.

“Harvard should be confident in its ability to expose students to diverse viewpoints without empowering the instigators of a violent, racist revanchist movement,” the petition read. “Harvard values democracy, equality, and the rule of law. Does it value them enough to hold its own alumni accountable for the most flagrant attack on these principles in recent history?”

The online campaign called for prominent Republicans to have their degrees taken away, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas), and White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany. The petition claimed, “It’s no secret that over a dozen Harvard graduates worked hard to spread the disinformation and mistrust that created last Wednesday’s insurrection.”

The petition applauded university management for removing Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) from The Harvard Institute of Politics Senior Advisory Committee. Harvard removed Stefanik, who graduated from the elite school with a degree in Government in 2006, because the New York congresswoman voted against certifying the 2020 election results.

Douglas Elmendorf, Dean of the Harvard Kennedy School, explained why he removed Stefanik in a letter released on Tuesday.

“Rather, in my assessment, Elise has made public assertions about voter fraud in November’s presidential election that have no basis in evidence, and she has made public statements about court actions related to the election that are incorrect,” Elmendorf wrote. “Moreover, these assertions and statements do not reflect policy disagreements but bear on the foundations of the electoral process through which this country’s leaders are chosen.”

The authors of the petition contend that banning Stefanik wasn’t severe enough of a punishment.

“However, banning someone from a committee or campus because they incited a violent attempt to overthrow the U.S. government is the least the university can do; it still grants them the benefits of their Harvard degree everywhere outside of Cambridge,” the petition said. “Those like Rep. Stefanik, who will wear a ban from Harvard as a badge of honor, may be less sanguine about a career without their B.A. or J.D. Revoke their degrees.”

Stefanik released a statement to address being kicked off the committee.

“As a conservative Republican, it is a rite of passage and badge of honor to join the long line of leaders who have been boycotted, protested, and canceled by colleges and universities across America,” Stefanik wrote. “The decision by Harvard’s administration to cower and cave to the woke Left will continue to erode diversity of thought, public discourse, and ultimately the student experience. The Ivory Tower’s march toward a monoculture of like-minded, intolerant liberal views demonstrates the sneering disdain for everyday Americans and will instill a culture of fear for students who will understand that a conservative viewpoint will not be tolerated and will be silenced.”

A spokesman for Harvard declined to provide a comment to Fox Business, but acknowledged that the petition exists and the university is aware of it.

Ryan Enos, Harvard Government professor and director of graduate studies for the Government department, wrote a letter to University president Lawrence S. Bacow on Monday. Enos insisted that the university develop “minimum standards” for lawmakers and others who want to be affiliated with Harvard, and it must “include supporting free elections and not encouraging violence.”

In November, a group of Harvard students started a censorship movement against conservatives. The petition called for a ban on former Trump administration officials from attending, teaching, or speaking at the university, according to Fox Business.

Big tech censorship Censorship Intelwars jack dorsey James O'Keefe President Trump Project Veritas Project veritas video Twitter

Leaked video: Jack Dorsey says Twitter’s ban of Trump is ‘bigger than one account’ and will ‘go on beyond inauguration’

A leaked video shows Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s plans for “broader” enforcement on the social media platform that will go far beyond the banning of President Donald Trump.

Project Veritas released a new video Thursday of Dorsey declaring that upcoming actions are “going to be much bigger than just one account,” and would “go on beyond the inauguration.”

The undercover video was allegedly secretly recorded by a “Twitter insider” during an internal meeting with employees of the social media company.

“We know we are focused on one account right now, but this is going to be much bigger than just one account, and it’s going to go on for much longer than just this day, this week, and the next few weeks, and go on beyond the inauguration,” Dorsey said in the leaked footage.

“So, the focus is certainly on this account and how it ties to real-world violence,” Dorsey said in the video call. “But also, we need to think much longer-term around how these dynamics play out over time. I don’t believe this is going away anytime soon.”

“You should always feel free to express yourself in whatever format manifestation feels right,” Dorsey said in the clip.

Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe tweeted out the video on Thursday with the caption: “BREAKING: @Twitter Insider Secretly Records CEO @jack Detailing Agenda For Further Political Censorship.”

Dorsey addressed Twitter’s recent purge of QAnon-related accounts, “And the moves that we’re making today around QAnon, for instance, one such example of a much broader approach that we should be looking at and going deeper on.”

On Tuesday, Twitter announced that it had suspended “more than 70,000 accounts” since the violence at the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6.

“We’ve been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behavior that has the potential to lead to offline harm,” Twitter said in a statement. “Given the violent events in Washington, DC, and increased risk of harm, we began permanently suspending thousands of accounts that were primarily dedicated to sharing QAnon content on Friday afternoon.”

A Twitter spokesperson responded to the Project Veritas video and told Fox News, “The remarks shown in the video were delivered to our more than 5,400 employees and are nearly the same words Jack shared in a recent Tweet Thread offering context around and reflections on our work to protect the conversation in recent weeks.”

Twitter permanently banned President Trump from the social media platform on Jan. 8. Twitter’s “safety” account said the company banned Trump “due to the risk of further incitement of violence” following the Capitol riots.

On Wednesday, Dorsey issued a statement on the banning of President Trump.

I do not celebrate or feel pride in our having to ban @realDonaldTrump from Twitter, or how we got here. After a clear warning we’d take this action, we made a decision with the best information we had based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter. Was this correct? I believe this was the right decision for Twitter.

Since the Capitol chaos, President Trump’s accounts and Trump-related accounts have been deplatformed or censored on numerous social media networks, including Facebook, Instagram, Google, YouTube, Apple, Paypal, Discord, TikTok, YouTube, Pinterest, and Shopify.

Project Veritas, an investigative group that aims to “expose misconduct in both public and private institutions,” has made headlines this week. The group released a secretly recorded video of former PBS principal counsel Michael Beller saying the government should take away children of Trump voters and put them in “reeducation camps.” Beller was fired by PBS after the video went viral.

On Wednesday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced that a woman was arrested on felony charges of election fraud, illegal voting, unlawfully assisting people voting by mail, and unlawfully possessing an official ballot. The suspect, Rachel Rodriguez, was reportedly first exposed last fall in a Project Veritas video.

Capitol chaos Capitol riots Chris Christie IMPEACHMENT Intelwars President Trump

Chris Christie said he’d vote to impeach President Trump for inciting an insurrection at the Capitol

Chris Christie believes that President Donald Trump deserves to be impeached and removed from office for his actions leading up to the riot at the U.S. Capitol building last Wednesday.

While appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” Christie said Trump’s actions were an “impeachable offense,” and urged Republicans to “vote their conscience.”

When asked by host George Stephanopoulos if he had a vote in Congress if he’d impeach the president, Christie responded, “If I think it’s an impeachable offense, that’s exactly what I would do.”

“But I’m not in there,” Christie said. “If you want my opinion, that’s my opinion.”

“I think if inciting to insurrection isn’t [an impeachable offense], I don’t really know what it is,” Christie told Stephanopoulos.

“We had an incitement to riot at the United States Capitol,” Christie, a former U.S. attorney, said. “We had people killed, and to me there’s not a whole lot of question here.”

“Listen, I think they’re going to have to vote their conscience and look at what happened,” Christie said of Republicans in Congress.

“What I’ve heard from fellow Republicans is that they’ve had enough and that the president’s conduct quite frankly since [the riot] has gotten them upset,” Christie said.

Christie pointed out that the Democrats’ impeachment over the president’s phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky tarnished their credibility. “I will say to that the Democrats, by what they did earlier on Ukraine, have kind of cheapened this a little bit too,” Christie said.

Christie had been one of Trump’s closest political allies dating back to the 2016 presidential campaign, and as recently as September when the former Republican governor of New Jersey helped Trump prepare for a presidential debate against Joe Biden.

Christie joins other Republicans who have considered Trump to be impeached over his actions leading to the storming of the Capitol building, including Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey and Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse.

Also on Sunday, former Republican California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger blamed Trump for the violence at the Capitol, and called said he “will go down in history as the worst president ever.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger compares Capitol chaos to Nazis’ Kristallnacht, calls Trump ‘worst president ever’

Arnold Schwarzenegger gave his opinions about the storming of the U.S. Capitol, and called Republican politicians “spineless.” The former Republican California governor compared last week’s Capitol chaos to Kristallnacht, the two-day attack and campaign of terror against Jews in Germany that was initiated by Nazi storm troopers.

“I grew up in Austria. I’m very aware of Kristallnacht, or the Night of Broken Glass,” Schwarzenegger said in the 7-minute video. “It was a night of rampage against the Jews carried out in 1938 by the Nazi equivalent of the Proud Boys. Wednesday was the Day of Broken Glass right here in the United States.”

“The broken glass was in the windows of the United States Capitol,” the action flick actor said on Sunday. “But the mob did not just shatter the windows of the Capitol. They shattered the ideas we took for granted.”

“They did not just break down the doors of the building of American democracy,” he claimed. “They trampled the very principles on which our country was founded.”

The Kristallnacht began on the night of Nov. 9, 1938, and ended in the deaths of at least 91 Jews.

“Over 250 synagogues were burned, over 7,000 Jewish businesses were trashed and looted, dozens of Jewish people were killed, and Jewish cemeteries, hospitals, schools, and homes were looted while police and fire brigades stood by,” according to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

“The morning after the pogroms 30,000 German Jewish men were arrested for the ‘crime’ of being Jewish and sent to concentration camps, where hundreds of them perished. Some Jewish women were also arrested and sent to local jails. Businesses owned by Jews were not allowed to reopen unless they were managed by non-Jews. Curfews were placed on Jews, limiting the hours of the day they could leave their homes.”

In the aftermath of the destruction, “The German government made an immediate pronouncement that ‘the Jews’ themselves were to blame for the pogrom and imposed a fine of one billion Reichsmark (some 400 million US dollars at 1938 rates) on the German Jewish community. The Reich government confiscated all insurance payouts to Jews whose businesses and homes were looted or destroyed, leaving the Jewish owners personally responsible for the cost of all repairs.”

In November, CNN International anchor Christiane Amanpour compared President Donald Trump’s four years in office to the Nazis’ Kristallnacht. Commenters labeled the comparison as “despicable” and “disgusting.”

Also in the video, Schwarzenegger attempted to lower the temperature on the nation’s rising political tensions that seem to be at a near-boiling point. He brandished the 3-foot-long sword from the 1982 movie “Conan the Barbarian” to make an unusual analogy.

“This is Conan’s sword. And here is the thing about swords – the more you temper it, the stronger it becomes,” the actor said of the movie prop. “Our democracy is like the steel of a sword. It has been tempered by wars, injustices and insurrections. I believe as shaken as we are by events in recent days, we will come out stronger because we now understand what can be lost.”

Schwarzenegger then called Republican politicians “spineless” and “complicit” to those who stormed the Capitol building.

“John F. Kennedy wrote a book called ‘Profiles in Courage.’ A number of members of my own party, because of their own spinelessness, would never see their names in such a book, I guarantee you,” Schwarzenegger said. “They’re complicit with those who carried a flag of self-righteous insurrection into the Capitol.”

Schwarzenegger then took aim at Trump.

“President Trump is a failed leader. He will go down in history as the worst president ever,” the actor said. “The good thing is he will soon be as irrelevant as an old tweet.”

The bodybuilder concluded his video by sending a message to President-elect Joe Biden.

“We wish you great success as our president. If you succeed, our nation succeeds. We support you with all our hearts as you seek to bring us together,” Schwarzenegger said.

Big tech censorship Intelwars President Trump sacha baron cohen Social Media Trump ban Trump banned Twitter Twitter ban Twitter reactions

Leftists compare Trump’s Twitter ban to Saddam Hussein’s capture, call it ‘most important moment in the history of social media’

Twitter permanently banned President Donald Trump from its social media platform on Friday. Giddy leftists and Democrats celebrated the censorship of the president of the United States on social media with outlandish comparisons and eccentric statements.

Leftist Hollywood actors and celebrities, who have made it their second job to endlessly attack Trump during his tenure, reveled in the Twitter banning.

“Borat” actor Sacha Baron Cohen bloviated, “This is the most important moment in the history of social media. The world’s largest platforms have banned the world’s biggest purveyor of lies, conspiracies and hate. To every Facebook and Twitter employee, user and advocate who fought for this–the entire world thanks you!”

Actor John Cusack bellowed, “This move by Twitter and Facebook are the biggest blows To his fascism.”

“Westworld” actor Jeffrey Wright posted, “Boom,” and included a screenshot of Trump’s now-suspended account.

“Veep” actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus asked Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, “What the f*** took you so long @jack?”

“Star Trek” actor George Takei stated, “I’m feeling Jacked today.”

“Avengers” actor Mark Ruffalo tweeted, “Thank you @Twitter & the board.”

Bette Midler was elated, “THANK YOU #TWITTER! CHURCH BELLS! RING THROUGHOUT THE LAND, SO EVERYONE KNOWS! IT’S OVER! TRUMP SUSPENDED FROM INCITING TO VIOLENCE ON TWITTER!”

Chrissy Teigen could only muster a laugh.

Comedian Jim Gaffigan was grateful, “Thank you @Twitter, @jack and @TwitterSafety for putting the safety of the people over profit! Now to find some Republicans with that courage.”

“Frozen” voice actor Josh Gad wrote, “All we got to do now is get the Nuclear codes out of his hands and we should be good!”

Democratic politicians also rejoiced over the news of Trump losing his ability to communicate to Americans on Twitter.

Rep. Max Rose (D-N.Y.) rollicked by comparing the Twitter banning of Trump to the capture of dictator Saddam Hussein, who is reported to be responsible for the killing of an estimated 250,000 people and figures as high as 500,000.

Hillary Clinton, who lost to Trump in the 2016 election, reacted by retweeting one of her own tweets from 2016 that read, “Delete your account,” and added a checkmark.

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) tweeted, “Great. Now let’s permanently suspend him from the White House.”

Rep. Robin Kelly (D-Ill.) ranted, “While long overdue, I commend twitter for moving to ban Donald Trump from the platform permanently. Tech companies must take responsibility for hate speech and misinformation flourishing on their watch. This is an important step toward accountability.”

Far-left Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) made a reference to “The Lord of the Rings” by saying, “Gollum has lost his precious.”

Black Lives Matter BLM Capitol chaos Capitol riots Intelwars LeBron James Lebron net worth President Trump

LeBron James goes on Capitol chaos rant: There are ‘2 AMERIKKKAS’ and we ‘s**tted away 4 years’ by electing Trump

NBA superstar LeBron James reacted to the chaos at the U.S. Capitol by criticizing the tenure of President Donald Trump and claiming there are two different “AMERIKKKAS,” where Black Lives Matter rioters are treated worse than the rioters who stormed the Capitol building on Wednesday.

Before Thursday’s Los Angeles Lakers game against the San Antonio Spurs, LeBron walked into the Staples Center wearing a shirt that read: “DO YOU UNDERSTAND NOW?” In a smaller font, the shirt stated: “In memoriam of the countless Black lives lost to police brutality and racial injustice.”

LeBron posted a photo of him wearing his shirt on Instagram.

“DO YOU UNDERSTAND NOW???!! I know the answer to that,” LeBron wrote on Instagram, and included several cursing angry emojis. “You still don’t cause no matter what happens you still won’t be judge, looked at crazy, chained, beaten, hung, shot to death cause of the color of your skin!!!! 2 AMERIKKKAS we live in and it was at FULL CAPACITY LIVE IN DIRECT yesterday in our Nations CAPITAL AT THE CAPITOL!!”

James tagged the post with the hashtag: #IPrayForBetterDaysForMyPeople.

Following the game, James commented on the riots at the U.S. Capitol. The Lakers star suggested that Trump supporters received preferential treatment from law enforcement during the unrest in Washington, D.C., and labeled those involved as “terrorists.”

“And that was a prime example of that yesterday, and if you don’t understand that or don’t see that after seeing what you saw yesterday, then you really need to take a step back — not even just one step, but maybe four or five, or even 10 steps backwards and ask yourself how do you want your kids, or how do you want your grandkids, or how do we want America to be viewed as?” James said during a post-game press conference. “Do we want to live in this beautiful country?”

“If those were my kind storming the Capitol, what would have been the outcome? And I think we all know,” James said during his diatribe. “There’s no ifs, ands or buts — we already know what would’ve happened to my kind if anyone would have even got close to the Capitol, let alone storm inside the offices, inside the hallways.”

James asked, “Do you understand how hard it is for us [black people] to continue to live our lives the way we live, continue to inspire, continue to give everything we got?

“Everyone jumps on the bandwagon of what we provide, what we bring, the way we dress, our music, our culture, our food,” LeBron ranted. “Everyone steals from what we do, and then they want to act like they did it or they brought it to this world.

“We don’t get our due diligence, the respect, we don’t get anything back from this country apart from a slap in the face,” said the 36-year-old NBA superstar who earns about $100 million a year and has an estimated net worth of $500 million.

LeBron’s teammate, Lakers forward Anthony Davis, compared the chaos at the Capitol with the Black Lives Matter protests and riots that happened over the summer.

“It’s like a double standard,” Davis said. “On the other side, an entire group runs into the nation’s Capitol and get escorted.”

Capitol Police, U.S. Park Police, D.C. Police, and National Guard removed Trump supporters from the Capitol building. Authorities used pepper spray, fired tear gas canisters, flashbang grenades, and smoke explosives to disperse the crowd. These are many of the same types of crowd control munitions that law enforcement has used during violent protests and riots that have regularly occurred in American cities since the death of George Floyd while in police custody on May 25.

Shortly after the storming of the Capitol building, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) instituted a 6 p.m. curfew and extended her declaration of a public emergency for an additional 15 days.

Four protesters died during the Capitol protests, three from “medical emergencies,” and Ashli Babbitt, a 14-year Air Force veteran who was fatally shot by a Capitol Police officer while trying to climb through a window in the building.

There were 60 law enforcement officers who were injured during the riot, including 15 who were hospitalized, according to The Hill. Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick, 42, died on Thursday evening. He succumbed to his injuries that he suffered “while physically engaging with protesters.”

LeBron, a vocal and longtime supporter of the Democrats, focused his anger on Trump, and blamed the president for the situation at the nation’s capital.

“The events that took place yesterday was a direct correlation of the president that’s in the seat right now — of his actions, his beliefs, his wishes,” James said. “He cares about nobody besides himself. Nobody. Absolutely nobody. He doesn’t care about this country. He doesn’t care about his family. He doesn’t care about anybody besides himself.”

“Four years ago, I sat there and said this is the beginning of the end for our country,” said LeBron, who has been an ardent critic of Trump. “And hopefully it only lasts four years.

“But the one thing you can’t get back in life, one thing you can never get back, and that’s time,” James continued. “Can’t get back time. We’ve literally just s**tted away four years. How do we recoup that?”

Big tech Big tech censorship Capitol chaos Capitol protest Censorship Intelwars President Trump Shopify Trump banned Trump merchandise

Shopify pulls Trump’s stores off its platform

E-commerce platform Shopify has shut down President Donald Trump’s online stores. The Canada-based tech company cited the chaos at the U.S. Capitol building as the reason for the ban.

Shopify permanently removed President Trump’s official campaign store and the Trump Organization’s online store on Thursday, as first reported by the Wall Street Journal.

“Shopify does not tolerate actions that incite violence,” a Shopify spokesperson said in a statement. “Based on recent events, we have determined that the actions by President Donald J. Trump violate our Acceptable Use Policy, which prohibits promotion or support of organizations, platforms or people that threaten or condone violence to further a cause. As a result, we have terminated stores affiliated with President Trump.”

Before the stores were shuttered, the online retailers sold the campaign’s signature “Make America Great Again” hats, buttons, flags, pennants, T-shirts, bobbleheads, and other “MAGA” merchandise.

In less than 24 hours, Big Tech has swiftly levied suspensions and bans on the president. Facebook has “indefinitely” blocked President Trump from posting on the social network. On Thursday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts would be locked until at least Inauguration Day on Jan. 20.

“We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great,” Zuckerberg wrote. “Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.”

Snapchat locked the president’s account on Wednesday. Snapchat co-founder and CEO Evan Spiegel said the social media platform “simply cannot promote accounts in America that are linked to people who incite racial violence, whether they do so on or off our platform.”

Twitter suspended Trump’s account for 12 hours and deleted three tweets.

“We have required the removal of three @realDonaldTrump Tweets that were posted earlier today for repeated and severe violations of our Civic Integrity Policy,” Twitter said. “This means that the account of @realDonaldTrump will be locked for 12 hours following the removal of these Tweets. If the Tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked.”

Twitter threatened that future violations would “result in permanent suspension of the @realDonaldTrump account.”

A video from Trump’s YouTube channel addressing the Capitol chaos was removed for misleading information about the 2020 election results. YouTube warned that any channel that receives three strikes for spreading election misinformation in 90 days will be terminated, including Trump’s account, according to The Verge.

Twitch, the livestreaming platform owned by Amazon, indefinitely disabled President Trump’s account.

“In light of yesterday’s shocking attack on the Capitol, we have disabled President Trump’s Twitch channel,” a Twitch spokesperson said. “Given the current extraordinary circumstances and the President’s incendiary rhetoric, we believe this is a necessary step to protect our community and prevent Twitch from being used to incite further violence.”

Trump’s Twitch account will be disabled until at least Inauguration Day and will be reassessed at that time.

2020 Election Intelwars President Trump rudy giuliani Sidney powell Trump legal team White house advisers

Sidney Powell says White House officials have blocked her from speaking to President Trump

Attorney Sidney Powell says White House officials have barred her from speaking to President Donald Trump, claiming the president’s “own people are misleading and undermining him.”

What are the details?

Powell told The Washington Examiner that her access to Trump has been cut off since Friday, when the president reportedly floated the idea of appointing her to serve as a special counsel to investigate voter fraud — which was an idea shot down by some of his advisers.

“I haven’t met or spoken with the President since Friday night,” Powell told the Examiner. “The President knows this election was stolen but he is not getting the support he, the Constitution, and the Republic deserve. His own people are misleading and undermining him while protecting their own careers and agendas.”

She added:

“I haven’t spoken with the DNI on these issues at all. My efforts to educate [Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani] on demonstrable foreign interference in the election including multiple CISA and FBI findings have been met with irrational hostility. I have been blocked by White House counsel and others from seeing or speaking to the President since I raised the public formal findings and even more evidence of the foreign interference from IRAN and CHINA in this election.”

Powell became nationally recognized due to her defense of Trump’s former national security adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn, and her profile has been raised following the election with her filing of several unsuccessful “Kraken” lawsuits alleging widespread voter fraud.

What did the Trump campaign say?

More than a month ago, the Trump campaign publicly distanced itself from Powell, after she alleged during a campaign news conference that voting machines were manipulated nationwide to flip the election for President-elect Joe Biden as part of a widespread conspiracy involving foreign powers.

Giuliani reiterated Monday on Newsmax:

“Let me say definitively: Sidney Powell is not part of our legal team. She hasn’t been for five weeks. She is not a special counsel for the president. She does not speak for the president, nor does she speak for the administration. She speaks for herself. And she’s a fine woman, a fine lawyer, but whatever she is talking about, it’s her own opinions. I’m not responsible for them, the president isn’t, nor is anybody else on our legal team.”

On Tuesday, longtime Republican adviser and strategist Karl Rove blasted Powell, telling Fox News, “Ms. Powell has peddled theories that have little basis in fact.”

He picked apart several witnesses that Powell has presented in court for “Kraken” lawsuits.

“What she has done to sort of throw mud on the president through her antics is unbelievable,” Rove said. “The president has been so ill-served by this crowd, and she’s chief among them.”

Election 2020 Hunter biden Intelwars Joe Biden Media Bias poll President Trump survey

Majority of Americans say Hunter Biden story was buried by the media to influence election: poll

In mid-October, the New York Post began publishing explosive allegations against Hunter Biden, accusing Joe Biden’s son of having inappropriate business dealings with energy corporations in Ukraine and China.

The source for the accusations was reported emails from a MacBook Pro laptop that allegedly belonged to Hunter Biden, but he never picked it up from a computer repair shop in Delaware after dropping it off there in April 2019.

Joe Biden denied the allegations at the final presidential debate by saying, “I have not taken a penny from any foreign source ever in my life.”

The accusations arrived at the stretch run for the 2020 presidential election, but much of the mainstream media flat-out refused to cover the story or labeled the New York Post reports as a “Russian disinformation campaign,” despite many details being published in 2018 by the New York Times.

In a new Rasmussen poll, a majority of Americans believe that the media purposely buried the Hunter Biden laptop story to influence the 2020 election.

Rasmussen asked 1,000 likely U.S. voters: “Which is closer to your thinking — that many news organizations ignored the Hunter Biden story to help Joe Biden’s presidential campaign or that many ignored the story because they felt it was a partisan hit job?”

The national telephone and online survey found that 52% think that news organizations ignored the Hunter Biden story to help his father’s presidential campaign. There were 32% who said the media ignored the story because they felt it was a partisan hit job, and 17% were not sure what to believe of the situation.

There were 56% who believed that Joe Biden was consulted about and perhaps profited from his son’s overseas business deals.

The poll also found that 70% of voters said they have been “closely” following the news about Hunter Biden’s business dealings, and 38% have been following it “very closely.”

“Among those who have been following Very Closely, 76% say the media deliberately ignored the story before Election Day to help Joe Biden, and 72% think the president-elect is likely to have been consulted about and perhaps profited from his son’s overseas dealings,” Rassmussen noted.

Hunter Biden revealed in early December that he was under a federal investigation. Department of Justice sources reportedly said Hunter Biden’s taxes had been under investigation since 2018. There are reports that Hunter Biden is under four federal investigations.

Since the investigation was made public, the mainstream media has shown more interest in covering the allegations. This week, NBC News published a story about the president-elect’s son receiving an email from a business partner that warned Hunter that he had failed to disclose $400,000 in income from the Ukrainian Burisma gas company on his 2014 tax returns.

Barack Obama General flynn Intelwars Michael Flynn President Trump Sidney powell Sydney powell

Michael Flynn: ‘I must have put the fear of God into Barack Obama’

Former national security advisor Mike Flynn took aim at former President Barack Obama. In his first television interview since his pardon, Flynn said he “must have put the fear of God into Barack Obama.”

President Donald Trump tapped Flynn to become his national security adviser on Nov. 18, 2016. Trump visited Obama on Nov. 10, 2016, where Obama allegedly warned the incoming POTUS about Flynn, according to Obama administration officials. Flynn previously worked under Obama as the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency from 2012 until 2014.

On Saturday, Flynn theorized as to why Obama would have sounded the alarm about him to the incoming administration.

“I must have put the fear of God into Barack Obama and still do because of this long four-year saga they put me, my family through, President Donald J. Trump, his family, and frankly the entire country,” Flynn told Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro. “One of these days, I’ll lay it out.”

Pirro pushed Flynn as to why Obama would issue a forewarning about him to Trump.

“When he chose me to be the national security advisor they knew that their little plan of spying on Donald Trump would fall apart and many other foreign policy blunders they got our country into, whether it was the Iran deal, issues going on in the Asian-pacific theater, trade, all sorts of issues that were in play that the last administration did to frankly run this country right into the ground,” Flynn said of his former boss.

“They knew those were the types of things I was aware of. Because let’s face it. Barack Obama appointed me twice. I was Senate confirmed twice during the time I was in the military,” Flynn retorted. “So, it’s amazing that would be what he would focus on during the transition for the United States of America. It’s outrageous, actually.”

Pirro asked Flynn about his former attorney Sidney Powell, who is currently challenging the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“I call Sidney Powell America’s guardian angel of justice,” Flynn stated. “Sidney Powell’s clients are the people of the United States of America. That’s who she is fighting for right now.”

“She has her teeth into Georgia, Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, and the stuff that she has laid out in her various filings, it is going to play out here,” Flynn continued.

“We have to stop all engines right now,” Flynn proclaimed. “All these governors and all these quote-unquote leaders of their states, they have to take responsibility and do something to stop what they are doing.”

Flynn advised, “Do not certify these elections and basically go back and do a far more detailed technical mail ballot and signature audit instead of just saying to the American people, ‘Hey, nothing to see here. We are just going to continue to move on to an inauguration.’ I’m sorry, that’s not what the American people want and they won’t stand for it.”

Last month, Flynn was granted a full pardon by Trump after the retired Army lieutenant general originally pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to the FBI over conversations that he had with a Russian envoy. Flynn later withdrew his guilty plea after Powell brought evidence suggesting that he was targeted. The Justice Department sought to drop Flynn’s case in May.

Flynn served as Trump’s national security adviser for 25 days before being dismissed over the allegations that he had lied to FBI agents.

David Perdue Fox News Georgia Intelwars Kelly loeffler President Trump Stop the steal Trump rally Victory rally

Crowd at Trump rally in Georgia lashes out at ‘traitor’ Fox News: ‘We trusted you!’

Trump supporters blasted Fox News correspondents on Saturday at a spirited rally in Georgia. At the event in Valdosta, Trump followers lambasted the cable news network for it’s presidential election coverage.

President Donald Trump addressed a large crowd at his “Victory Rally” in Georgia, where he voiced his support of Republican senatorial candidates David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler in their battle against Democratic candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock ahead of the Jan. 5 runoff elections.

Trump also used the high-energy rally to spotlight his challenge of the 2020 presidential election results, especially in the state of Georgia.

“We can fight for the presidency and fight to elect our two great senators and we can do it at the same time. We can do it at the same time, it’s alright,” Trump told the crowd.

Perdue and Loeffler briefly took to the stage to garner support from the pro-Trump crowd but were drowned out by boisterous chants of “Fight for Trump!” and “Stop the steal!”

Before the event took place, numerous Trump supporters spotted and then confronted members of Fox News. Trump devotees slammed Fox News for their coverage of the 2020 presidential election, especially early calling the state of Arizona in favor of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

One Trump supporter is seen on video telling a Fox News reporter, “Fox News does not call the election.”

According to Sky News producer Sarah Gough, the “Fox News journalists were getting the most abuse” from the pro-Trump crowd, a dubious honor that is usually dedicated to CNN. There were also shouts of “We trusted you!” and “Traitors!” aimed at the cable news network.

There was a chant of “Fox is fake news!”

Jennifer Jacobs, the senior White House reporter for Bloomberg News, noted that one man was shouting, “The truth is all we want!” He was reportedly escorted out of the rally, while the crowd yelled at security to “leave him alone!”

Since Election Day, Fox News has seen its viewership plummet. Fox News’ total viewership declined by a whopping 32% in the two weeks after the Nov. 3 election compared to its viewership in the two weeks prior to the election.

Coronavirus deaths Covid deaths Face mask debate face masks Intelwars Joe Scarborough Mika Brzezinski Morning Joe President Trump

Mika Brzezinski says she’s ‘done being polite’ to Republicans about masks; Trump is ‘killing tens of thousands’

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski blasted Republicans and President Donald Trump on the topic of face masks, and became so enraged that she declared she is “done being polite.”

A very aggrieved Brzezinski attacked Republicans about coronavirus measures, as it pertains to mask mandates, as her co-host husband Joe Scarborough cracked jokes and laughed at her hostile temperament towards “his friends.”

During a discussion about Joe Biden’s call for Americans to wear face masks for 100 days, Brzezinski remarked on how “quickly the numbers would change” with a mask mandate and compliance.

Brzezinski then addressed Scarborough’s “friends” and “some of the Republicans,” who have not pushed face masks as fervently and forcibly as Democrats.

She denounced Republican politicians “who’ve been standing by as stooges to President Trump, not stepping up for the American people and their safety and, quite frankly, stepping up against the president’s stupidity and cruelty, not being a leader on this coronavirus.”

“Honestly, honestly, how stupid can you be at this point?” an annoyed Brzezinski questioned rhetorically, as reported by Mediaite. “If you just actually read about it, learn about it, how stupid can you be to be so arrogant and to be so flip about this when we have numbers like this? How crazy are you?”

Brzezinski asked, “And I wonder if your friends and those Republicans will actually admit that actually doing basic things to mitigate this virus would have changed the course of this pandemic?”

Scarborough joked with his wife, “Should I ask them that way?”

“Yeah, ask them,” Brzezinski snapped back, as Scarborough began giggling. “Because you know what the numbers will change. And at this point, I don’t even … I’d be careful.”

“Well, we’ve been asking that question for quite some time. Again, I think I’ll be a little polite first and I’ll pick up the phone…” Scarborough replied.

“I’m done with being polite,” Brzezinski barked. “I actually would like people in this country to stay alive. unlike some of your friends and Republicans in the Senate and in the House.”

Brzezinski then snarled, “And President Trump, whose presidency is killing people by the tens of thousands.”

“We agree with all that, we just don’t agree about how I approach my friends,” Scarborough responded.

Brzezinski sarcastically replied, “Friends? Those are great friends.” She then added, “This president wanted you arrested, Joe. And they still stood by him. I’m just saying could you require that he doesn’t kill people?”

AOC Black Lives Matter Dr. fauci Gretchen Whitmer Intelwars Person Of The Year Person of the year 2020 President Trump Stacey abrams Time Magazine Time person of the year

Time magazine’s ‘Person of the Year’ nominees: Stacey Abrams, Andrew Cuomo, Dr. Fauci, Gretchen Whitmer, BLM activists

The list of nominees for Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” award were announced on Wednesday, and the pool of contenders is predictably extremely left-leaning and has no shortage of Democratic politicians.

Despite issuing a directive forcing nursing homes in New York to accept coronavirus-positive patients, Gov. Andrew Cuomo is a candidate for the “Person of the Year,” according to Time. Thus far in the voting, there have been 35% of people who Cuomo is deserving of the accolade.

Fellow Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is also nominated, and there are 19%, who voted for her to win the award despite her exceedingly prohibitive COVID-19 lockdown restrictions. Snatching up a 59% approval rating on the poll is Stacey Abrams, who lost her gubernatorial race in Georgia in 2018. There were no Republican governors on the list.

The only Republicans who were eligible to vote for were President Donald Trump, who was at 8%, Vice President Mike Pence at 3%, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) coming in at 2%.

Meanwhile, there were plenty of Democratic lawmakers, including Sen. Kamala Harris (68%), Joe Biden (64%), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (38%), Sen. Bernie Sanders (23%), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (22%), and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (17%).

There were 6% of people who said Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett should be Time’s “Person of the Year,” the same percentage as rapper Cardi B.

Dr. Anthony Fauci was the highest-rated individual with 81% of people voting for him to be the “2020 Person of the Year.”

“How to Be An Antiracist” author Ibram X Kendi garnered 11%, and quarterback-turned-racial justice activist Colin Kaepernick snagged a 29% approval rating.

There were 61% of voters who believed that Black Lives Matter activists should win the honor. The World Health Organization was given 32% of a “Yes” vote.

Essential workers earned a whopping 81% for their contributions during the coronavirus pandemic, and firefighters came in at 54%.

Other non-political nominees include Pope Francis, NBA commissioner Adam Silver, tennis player Naomi Osaka, LeBron James, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Patrick Mahomes, Beyonce, Sacha Baron Cohen, Megan Markle, comedian Sarah Cooper, Mark Zuckerberg, singer Billie Eilish, Trevor Noah, Taylor Swift, and teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg, who won the award in 2019.

The final results will be announced by Dec. 10, after Time editors select a winner.

Time has been naming its “Person of the Year” since 1927, when aviation legend Charles Lindberg won the accolade.

Intelwars Jenna ellis President Trump rudy giuliani Sidney powell trump campaign Trump legal team

Trump campaign releases statement: Sidney Powell ‘is not a member of the Trump Legal Team’

The Trump campaign released a statement on Sunday evening that lawyer Sidney Powell is not a member of the legal team representing President Donald Trump.

Trump campaign senior legal adviser Jenna Ellis and Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani made the announcement in a statement, which was shared on Twitter.

“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own,” the statement reads. “She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”

The statement was issued only days after Powell appeared alongside Giuliani and Ellis at a Trump campaign press conference outlining claims of voter fraud in the 2020 election. On Thursday, Powell claimed that Communist countries, including Venezuela, Cuba, and China, meddled in the 2020 presidential election through the Dominion voting machines and Smartmatic software.

Powell has been making extraordinary claims about widespread election fraud, which have been heavily contested. Powell stated that Trump won the 2020 presidential election in a “landslide” and his legal team is “going to prove it.” On Saturday, Powell alleged that Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) was involved in a pay-for-play scandal involving Dominion Voting Systems.

“Hopefully this week we will get it ready to file, and it will be biblical,” Powell said on Saturday.

TheBlaze reached out to the Trump campaign, but did not receive a response before publication.

2020 Election election Florida Hispanic voters Intelwars Latino voters President Trump Texas

Latino support of Trump improved election margins in 78 of nation’s 100 Hispanic counties, increased in battleground states

President Donald Trump earned 32% of Latino voters in the 2020 presidential election, which caught many Democrats by surprise since he was branded as a “racist” by the mainstream media for four years.

Trump excelled with Tejanos, Mexican American inhabitants of southern Texas. In Zapata County, Texas, which is 94.7% Hispanic, Trump defeated Biden by a margin of 52-to-47. Thanks to the Democrats cozying up to socialism, approximately 55% of Florida’s Cuban-American vote went to Trump.

A new report found that Trump’s increased support from Latinos wasn’t limited to only border towns in Texas and South Florida. Trump made significant inroads with Latino voters in the 2020 election throughout the nation.

Trump improved his margins in 78 of the country’s 100 majority-Hispanic counties, according to election analysis by Politico. The report added that Trump increased his support with Hispanic voters in the top 10 battleground states, based on exit polls.

“Puerto Ricans as far away as Philadelphia and Mexican Americans in Milwaukee drifted Trump-ward,” Politico reported.

“Most Latinos identify first as working-class Americans, and Trump spoke to that,” Josh Zaragoza, a top Democratic data specialist in Arizona, told Politico’s Marc Caputo. Zaragoza continued, “Their economic language is more aligned with the way Republicans speak: pulling yourself up by your bootstraps, owning your own business.”

Jose Parra, founder of the consultancy Prospero Latino, said, “Let’s face it, ‘defund the police’ is just not the best slogan, especially in a place like Miami, where a lot of people work in law enforcement, or along the border of Texas, where Latinos are in Border Patrol.”

“Calls to ‘defund the police,’ a boycott of Goya Foods and the threat of socialism turned off some Latino voters. And even using the term Latinx to describe Latinos in a way that’s gender-neutral only served to puzzle many Hispanics,” the article stated.

During a conference call earlier this month between Democrats attempting to discover what went wrong in the 2020 election, members of the DNC were reportedly concerned with the party’s embrace of far-left policies such as defund the police as well as flirting with socialism.

“Defund police, open borders, socialism — it’s killing us,” Rep. Vincente Gonzalez (D-Texas) allegedly said. “I had to fight to explain all that.”

Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) supposedly questioned the DNC’s Latino outreach program.

Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.) allegedly went so far as to say, “We have to commit to not saying the words ‘defund the police’ ever again. We need to not ever use the words socialist or socialism ever again. It does matter, and we have lost good members because of that.”

“If we run this race again we will get f***ing torn apart again in 2022,” the Virginia congresswoman reportedly proclaimed.

2020 Election Alexandria ocasio-cortez AOC Bill pascrell Donald Trump election Intelwars Matt gaetz President Trump

Democratic congressman says Trump and allies should be tried for ‘crimes against our nation;’ Gaetz hits back: ‘Disgusting’

Less than two weeks ago, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was smashed with backlash for demanding a list of “Trump sycophants” so that they will be held accountable in the future. Now, another Democratic politician has called for punitive punishment against President Donald Trump and his allies.

Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. (D-N.J.), who is a staunch critic of the president, has called for Trump and his “enablers” to “be tried for their crimes against our nation.” Earlier this week, Pascrell issued a press release demanding a “widespread investigation” and prosecution of “Trump government crimes.”

“Donald Trump and members of his administration have committed innumerable crimes against the United States,” Pascrell claimed without providing proof.

Pascrell listed a number of unsubstantiated accusations, by saying, “He has endangered our national security. He ripped families apart. He poisoned the Census. He has personally profited from his office. He has attacked our elections and sought to throttle democracy.”

The Democratic congressman baselessly alleged that the president “engaged in treason,” a crime punishable by death.

“Therefore, in 2021 the entire Trump administration must be fully investigated by the Department of Justice and any other relevant offices,” Pascrell said in the statement that was released on Tuesday. “Donald Trump along with his worst enablers must be tried for their crimes against our nation and Constitution.”

Pascrell added, “Importantly, any further abuse of the sacred pardon power to shield criminals would itself be obstruction of justice, and any self-pardons would be illegal.”

Pascrell contended that not punishing Trump and his allies only “emboldens criminality by our national leaders and continues America down the path of lawlessness and authoritarianism.”

Trump ally Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) retaliated on Twitter by calling the campaign to prosecute Trump administration members “disgusting.”

“This is now the Left’s goal – throw President Trump, his administration officials, his family and his supporters in prison,” Gaetz wrote on Twitter. “This is where we are now. Disgusting.”

Pascrell has been harshly critical of Trump challenging the 2020 election results, and said the president is attempting to “steal the election he lost badly.”

“Crybaby trump is calling local officials demanding they overturn an election he lost badly and throw out ballots because they voted against him,” Pascrell tweeted. “He will leaving office by January 20.”

On Saturday, Pascrell claimed that the “Republican Party is unfit to govern and doesn’t give a damn about you.”

immigration Immigration policies Intelwars Joe Biden President joe biden President Trump refugees

Joe Biden promises to raise annual number of refugees admitted to US from 15,000 to at least 125,000

Joe Biden declared that he plans to vastly increase the number of annual refugees admitted into the United States. Under the Trump administration, the maximum number of refugees permitted in the U.S. per year is 15,000. Biden pledged that he will dramatically raise that number to 125,000.

Biden made the declaration in a prerecorded video created for a virtual celebration of the 40th anniversary of Jesuit Refugee Service.

“The United States has long stood as a beacon of hope for the downtrodden and the oppressed, a leader of resettling refugees in our humanitarian response,” Biden said on Thursday, as reported by the Religion News Service. “I promise, as president, I will reclaim that proud legacy for our country.”

“The Biden-Harris administration will restore America’s historic role in protecting the vulnerable and defending the rights of refugees everywhere and raising our annual refugee admission target to 125,000,” Biden announced.

In June, Biden released a statement on World Refugee Day, in which he said, “Fear-mongering, xenophobia, and racism are the unabashed tenets of Trump’s refugee and immigration policy,”

“I also recognize that it is not enough to simply reverse or dismantle the heartless policies of the Trump Administration,” the former vice president stated. “We need to look for ways to do better.”

“As President, I will increase the number of refugees we welcome into this country, setting an annual global refugee target of 125,000,” Biden said, then hinted that he could raise that amount, “And will seek to further raise it over time commensurate with our responsibility, our values, and the unprecedented global need.”

Biden added, “I will repeal the Muslim ban — and other discriminatory bans based on ethnicity and nationality — and restore asylum laws, including ending the horrific practice of separating families at our border.”

In October, President Donald Trump released a memo that read, “The admission of up to 15,000 refugees to the United States during FY 2021 is justified by humanitarian concerns or is otherwise in the national interest.”

A study released earlier this year claimed that refugees cost American taxpayers as much as $133,000 over the course of their lives.
