I wrote the 1984 follow-up, it’s called “2021”


The Biden administration’s Department of Justice has tasked the FBI to assess what the greatest dangers facing America are today. The intelligence agencies handed over their ‘dossier’, which concluded that white supremacists posed a very significant terrorist threat.

The issue was presented to White House lawyers, who drafted an anti-terrorism bill – as they did after 9/11 – which quickly won a majority in the House and then in the Senate, and was signed into law by President Biden.

From then on, and without waiting for trials, arrests and surveillance operations, Silicon Valley became active, as did all the largest American companies that jostled each other to point out how virtuous they are.

Without the slightest difficulty, BigTech blacklisted all pro-Trump supporters – nearly one hundred million people:
  • 74 million who voted for him,
  • 12 million teenagers between the ages of 12 and 17 (there are 25.1 million of them),
  • A few million pro-Trumpers who, on principle, never vote,
  • Illegal pro-Trump migrants – mostly Hispanics – because Trump freed the economic forces and allowed them to find work,
  • A few million people who are not particularly pro-Trumpers, but at one time or another, have published messages praising a decision President Trump made.
  • Sunni American Muslims who were delighted with the President’s draconian measures against Shiite Iran,
  • Chinese migrants who fled communist China,
  • Korean expatriates who saw a glimmer of rapprochement with Kim and a thaw in relations with North Korea,
  • And, of course, the millions of Democratic energy workers who have found work, thanks to the deregulation of the Trump administration.


With the click of a mouse, Amazon provided a list of every person – home address, email, phone number – who bought a MAGA cap or flag, every person who ordered a book from a conservative author;

The Trump Campaign email server provided the email address of each person who subscribed to the Trump Newsletter.

Google, with the click of a mouse in Google map, compiled a list of people who have attended Trump’s rallies in each State.

Comcast compiled a list of all the people who watch Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham on FoxNews at night.

As a reminder, the most anti-Trump news channels belong to Comcast: NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, USA Network, NBCSN, and E! and have actively participated in the demonization of President Trump for 4 years.

Verizon also provides Comcast’s MVNO mobile operator… With the click of a button, Verizon, thanks to the geolocation of their cell phones, compiled a list of all subscribers who have attended pro-Trump marches and demonstrations, as well as rallies.


Suspending the President of the United States account – an act of extreme seriousness – is only a sample of what was coming.
Because the Department of Justice and Congress have established that domestic terrorism must be fought, the people on the blacklist have been blacklisted by Silicon Valley:
  • We can no longer order a Uber; nor an electric scooter; nor buy on Amazon; nor, during the Coronavirus containment, order our meals on GrubHub or Uber Eats.
  • Speaking of coronavirus, we were forced to get vaccinated to receive a green passport to travel. However, as we are on the blacklist, the airline companies have put us on their No Fly List: we cannot fly anymore because we represent a terrorist risk. Note: Islamists can board a plane, they are not on the blacklist.
  • The banking services have canceled our credit cards. We have to pay everything in cash, but a new law requires to show an ID for any purchase over $25, and vendors have been ordered to register the names of customers on a site managed by Google. The banks have not yet canceled our bank accounts because of ongoing lawsuits by civil rights organizations. These organizations are under constant IRS audits. As a consequence, it is impossible for us to make online purchases, even to order a meal from local restaurants.
  • We have been fired from our companies, and our children can no longer enroll in universities.
  • Finally, Comcast instructed Xfinity to terminate our Internet access, our TV package, and Verizon and T-Mobile terminated our cell phone lines.


  • For some time now, we have not been able to buy phones from Apple, and we have turned to the used market, but recently, a new law was passed that forces any seller to ask for an ID from any phone buyer, and to check on the federal list if we are not blacklisted. And, of course, anyone selling a phone to a person representing a domestic terrorist risk is subject to a very heavy fine.
  • The electric-car market is not forbidden to us, but since we are on the blacklist, we cannot start them: they no longer have an ignition key but a fingerprint sensor. You will tell me, who needs an electric car anyway… you just forgot one little detail: The Green New Deal.
  • The Green New Deal was voted. Two third of the country’s gas stations were removed because according to the law, the distance between two stations cannot be less than 400 miles. A Green Tax raised the gasoline price and is cost now $50 per gallon. Finally, the Senate voted a $300 CO2 tax per month included in our car insurance premium: driving a gas-powered car is therefore not prohibited, the law could not be overturned by the Supreme Court.
  • The same goes for our right to bear arms. Since this right is protected by the Constitution, it could never be abolished. Because we are on the blacklist of terrorist risk, we cannot buy a weapon. Moreover, those who have the right to own one must, according to the latest federal law, store it at home in a safe. They have to be completely dismantled, and the bullets cannot be in the same safe. Of course, the safes must now be connected to the internet all the time, like the cameras in our house or the Ring on our front doors.

They established a public list of potential risks of domestic terrorism, the same kind than sex offender lists. It includes all white supremacists – I mean, all those who are not Democrats: black Republicans are also classified as white supremacists!

With this list, it has become almost impossible for us to rent a unit in the neighborhoods of our choice.

Now we remember with nostalgia the good days when we were only suspended from Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and other social networks: those were the good times after all. At least we still had a Gmail account. Now Google has removed our Gmail address, and others have followed: it is no longer possible for us to have an email address, we are limited to snail mail. And it has become almost impossible for us to get information.


Clandestine printing houses and rotary presses have been set: they are all mechanical so they cannot be monitored. The market for manual typewriters has exploded – we buy them second-hand because the sellers are not required to identify the buyers – at least for the time being. The public phone booths are all very clean and very well maintained – we do it ourselves. It’s our preferred method of communication: from booth to booth, changing regularly, and at preset times.

In the last election, Democrats won the presidency, Congress, and the governorship of all states by 96.56 percent. The Republicans got 2.13 percent. Turnout was 137.6 percent.

Rare echoes of fraud were heard here and there, but the individuals who made these accusations were immediately classified as conspirators, and the FBI raided their homes.

The FBI issued a report saying there was no voter fraud.

Wall Street Banks Freeze Political Donations After Capitol Hill Rally, Threaten Pro-Trump Politicians with Blacklisting

They have been doing this for years. JP Morgan Chase refused to handle AFDI’s bank business years ago. Did you really think it would end with us?

Communist America. Further proof the election was stolen. America did not vote for this.

Wall Street Banks Freeze Political Donations After Capitol Hill Riots, Threaten Pro-Trump Politicians with Blacklisting

By: John Carney, Breitbart News, 11 Jan 2021:

Wall Street is slamming the lid shut on the coffers of its corporate political action committees and threatening pro-Trump politicians on Capitol Hill with blacklisting.

Following a week in which major social media companies cut of President Donald Trump and began excluding some of his biggest advocates in the wake of the Capitol Hill riot, some of the nation’s largest financial institutions have announced that they are halting donations to their political action committees and considering permanently cutting off politicians accused of attempting to “overturn” the 2020 election.

J.P. Morgan Chase, the nation’s biggest bank by assets and market capitalization, said it is halting donations through its PAC for six months. Citigroup, the third-largest U.S. bank by assets, is reportedly pressing pause on political donations for the first quarter of 2020.

Goldman Sachs put the kibosh on donations pending a review of “how people acted during this period,” according to the New York Times, with the likely result that it will exclude Republican politicians who challenged the 2020 election results. Morgan Stanley also said it is stopping political contributions. It is considering withdrawing support for any politicians who voted against certifying Joe Biden’s electoral college win.

Bank of American and Wells Fargo are still considering their response but are likely to follow the path chosen by their competitors.

Typically, bank contributions to political action committees and politicians are considered by the Americana public some of the worst intersections of money and politics. The current situation has given the banks a rare opportunity to pose as do-gooders, even while implicitly pressuring politicians to win back their favor by adopting pro-Wall Street stances.

Corporate America is also freezing donations. So far, Marriott, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Boston Scientific have said they will close their political purse strings.

The reaction to the Capitol Hill riot by supporters of President Trump stands in stark contrast to the response of banks and corporations to the Black Lives Matter anti-police riots and protests of last year. In response to those events, corporations pledged over a billion in support of Black Lives Matter and related causes.

Democrat Insurrectionists Introduce ‘Incitement of Insurrection’ Impeachment Charge

The Left Is Enjoying Its Reichstag Fire Moment

UPDATE: Christina Bobb discusses the MSM wanting people to believe that President Trump incited riots at the Capitol and why the left is so threatened by him.

No one can point to any statement from President Trump calling upon his supporters to storm the Capitol, much less to stage a coup against the U.S. government, but it doesn’t matter anymore. The establishment media and the social media giants are insisting that he incited the attack on the Capitol and was trying to install himself as a dictator by means of a guy with a buffalo horn hat and some other dopes and wingnuts, and if you don’t believe it, you’re a racist, bigoted, MAGA-hat-wearing fascist who deserves to be silenced along with the president, and soon will be. But it’s clear who the real fascists are, and they are exploiting their Reichstag Fire moment to the fullest.

On February 27, 1933, four weeks after Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany, the Reichstag, the German parliament building in Berlin, caught fire. The culprit was a Dutch Communist, Marinus van der Lubbe, who apparently had acted alone. Hitler, however, insisted that the Communist Party, which was a considerable force within the Reichstag, had set the fire, and pressed German President Paul von Hindenburg to approve of an emergency law suspending civil liberties. Communist leaders, including the Communist members of the Reichstag, were hunted down and arrested.

Without their presence in the Reichstag, the National Socialists and their coalition partners had a majority. That enabled the Nazis to pass a further law, the Enabling Act, on March 23, 1933, giving Hitler dictatorial powers and removing any obstacle to his absolute supremacy.

While some people have always maintained that the whole thing was a false flag, most historians believe than van der Lubbe really did set the fire. Nonetheless, the advantages it gave to the Nazis were clear, and so it was no surprise when, at the Nuremberg Trials after World War II ended, German General Franz Halder declared that he had heard one of the most prominent and influential Nazis, Hermann Göring, boast that he himself had set the fire.  When confronted with Halder’s statement, Göring denied having had anything to do with the fire, but there is no doubt that its chief beneficiary was Germany’s new National Socialist regime. The Reichstag fire enabled the National Socialists to declare their political opponents enemies of the state and accordingly silence them and outlaw their activity, and opened the door to World War II and the Holocaust.

The parallels to what is happening today are obvious. In the wake of the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the Democrats are trying to criminalize opposition to their program, painting all support of President Trump and his America-First program as incitement to violence and tantamount to sedition. He has been shut out of the major social media networks that exercise near-total control over the means of communication today. And as Trump himself has pointed out repeatedly, for all the demonic frenzy of their desire to destroy him utterly, he is really not the target. We are.

The National Socialists used the Reichstag fire to destroy all political opposition in Germany and assert total control over the lives of every German citizen. They used it to give themselves official, pseudo-legal permission to break every moral law and ethical code ever known to mankind, and ultimately to murder tens of millions of people, including six million Jews (the particular target of their hatred), and lay waste to the entire European continent.

The American Left of today has followed the Nazis’ Reichstag Fire playbook to a T thus far. What is to prevent them from attempting to implement the whole thing? The one thing saving us from woke totalitarianism at this point may be the fact that the sinister authoritarians of the Democratic Party, the social media corporations, and the establishment media may already have overreached. America in 2020, even after fifty years of woke indoctrination in our schools, is not like Germany of 1933. We have a strong tradition of freedom, notably the freedom of speech. In attempting to impose their totalitarian woke straitjacket upon the American people, the Left is going to encounter considerably more opposition than the Nazis did in Germany, where the Weimar Republic was the nation’s first attempt at representative government and never enjoyed great support among the people.

These are indeed, however, as Tom Paine said so long ago, the times that try men’s souls. The way forward is unclear. The avenues that are even available to us to continue to dissent from the Left are being systematically closed down – witness the fact that after banning Trump, the social media giants began to make war on their much smaller competitor, Parler. The Left is reveling in its Reichstag Fire moment. This is their hour and the power of darkness. But the light of freedom still burns in so many American’s hearts that it is safe to say: this isn’t over.

Dark Days for America? Big Tech Wields Cudgel on Conservative Voices

Along with the president, conservatives de-platformed in a coordinated operation.

It will probably go down as the Friday Night massacre. Only it didn’t end Friday night and it won’t end for quite a while.

On Friday night, Twitter permanently banned President Trump’s account. The move was soon followed by Facebook and Instagram.

Over the weekend, scores of conservative voices – those who have never advocated for any violence – had also been de-platformed. The ones who still had a voice watched as their followers disappeared by the tens of thousands.

Entire communities were wiped off of Facebook – like the Walkaway movement, a peaceful group of “red-pilled” former Leftists, which had a half a million followers on the platform.

By Sunday morning, Big Tech had shut down Parler, a free-speech app that deigned not to censor any voices, conservatives included. In a coordinated effort, Google and Apple deleted Parler app from their stores and Amazon, whose server hosted the app, took it off-line.

In addition, CNN launched a campaign to get cable carriers to refuse to air Fox News as well as other conservative channels. On its website, CNN’s Senior Media Reporter Oliver Darcy wrote,

“It’s hard, for instance, to imagine they’d carry a fringe and conspiratorial network like InfoWars. So why do AT&T (which I should note is CNN’s parent company), CenturyLink, and Verizon carry OAN? Why do AT&T, CenturyLink, Verizon, Comcast, Charter, and Dish carry Newsmax? And why do they all carry Fox — which is, frankly, at times just as irresponsible and dangerous with its platform as its smaller competitor networks?”

Also over the weekend, passengers on a Delta flight were reportedly thrown off the plane after having a private conversation in support of President Trump.

BlazeTV journalist Elijah Schaffer as well as YouTube influencer Karlyn Borysenko, among others, were put on the government’s no-fly list following the events at the Capitol in which pro-Trump demonstrators invaded the building. Schaffer had police permission to enter the Capitol building to document the events. Borysenko, a prominent voice in the Walkaway movement, attended the peaceful “Stop the Steal Rally” in Washington, D.C., and was nowhere near the inside of the Capitol building.

Many more examples could be added to this list.

Free speech, along with the right to peaceful protest and freedom of movement, are the linchpins of our liberty. Without these rights – all of which are guaranteed to us by the Constitution – we are no different from communist China or the former Soviet Union.

Big Tech has been engaging in the suppression of free speech for months. But what was previously a slippery slope to censorship of conservative voices suddenly became an avalanche over the weekend taking us to a new reality.

The Far Left arm of the Democrat party has been agitating for years for Big Tech to censor conservative voices on their various platforms, threatening action against them if they don’t. Now that Democrats control the House, Senate and presidency, the move by Big Tech comes as no surprise – both ideologically and business-wise.

Ideologically, Big Tech gets to squash their nemeses. Business-wise, this just might be the most efficient move to get radical Dems off their backs. In any event, it’s not a good combination for the future of free speech in America.

Even the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which has become a bastion of Far Left ideology in recent years, said in a statement,

“ … it should concern everyone when companies like Facebook and Twitter wield the unchecked power to remove people from platforms that have become indispensable for the speech of billions  — especially when political realities make those decisions easier.”

For those who would argue that Big Tech are private companies that owe us nothing, for better or worse, being able to communicate on social media platforms has become “indispensable” (in the words of the ACLU) in our society – especially during the current pandemic.

The very reason why the government has kept their hands off Big Tech until now has been because they had committed to be open channels of communication. Congress specifically granted immunity from libel prosecution to online platforms through Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act so that these platforms would remain “forum[s] for a true diversity of political discourse.”

And for those who would argue that Trump’s language amounts to incitement to violence and thus should be banned, we have laws for this. To date, Trump has not violated those laws, according to the most respected legal experts.

History professor Dr. Richard Beeman relates in Perspectives on the Constitution the following anecdote:

“There is a story, often told, that upon exiting the Constitutional Convention Benjamin Franklin was approached by a group of citizens asking what sort of government the delegates had created.

His answer was: “A republic, if you can keep it.”

The brevity of that response should not cause us to under-value its essential meaning: democratic republics are not merely founded upon the consent of the people, they are also absolutely dependent upon the active and informed involvement of the people for their continued good health.”

Depriving a voice to the 75 million ordinary citizens who voted for President Trump in the 2020 election will create a pressure cooker that, when it explodes, will make the brief Capitol Building takeover look like child’s play.

Ideas, no matter how bad one group thinks they are, don’t go away because they are suppressed. Rather, they begin to fall under the purview of extremists, which have their own agenda for the accelerated destruction of America.

“Offensive” speech or not, better we should talk in the open and let the best ideas prevail.

Pelosi Gives Pence 24 Hours to Invoke 25th Amendment Or Else

By: Todd Starnes, Jan 10, 2021

Following is a letter House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sent to Democrats:

On this Sunday, as we pray that God will continue to Bless America, I write to inform you of our next actions, which will be made with the great solemnity that this moment requires.

I want to call to your immediate attention the action to be taken tomorrow morning, when Majority Leader Hoyer will request Unanimous Consent to bring up the Raskin resolution. This resolution calls on the Vice President to convene and mobilize the Cabinet to activate the 25th Amendment to declare the President incapable of executing the duties of his office, after which the Vice President would immediately exercise powers as acting President. The text of the resolution can be found here.

If we do not receive Unanimous Consent, this legislation is planned to be brought up on the Floor the following day. We are calling on the Vice President to respond within 24 hours.

Next, we will proceed with bringing impeachment legislation to the Floor.

In protecting our Constitution and our Democracy, we will act with urgency, because this President represents an imminent threat to both. 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.

I look forward to our Caucus call tomorrow. I am grateful to all Members for the suggestions, observations and input that you have been sending. Your views on the 25th Amendment, 14th Amendment Section 3 and impeachment are valued as we continue. I am answering your communications in chronological order and will do so into the night.

Thank you for your patriotism.

ILLINOIS: School Board Denounces Member for ‘Islamophobia’ for Responding to Muslim Colleague’s Smear

Dima Ali called Dan Moroney a “white supremacist.” Moroney’s friend Matt Baron responded by likening Dima Ali to a terrorist. Baron has now been condemned for “Islamophobia,” why isn’t the District 200 school board apologizing for Moroney for Ali’s defamation of him? Because “white supremacist” is the acceptable smear that can be leveled at anyone and everyone who dissents from the Leftist agenda. No apology is necessary.

“D200 board denounces member’s ‘Islamophobia,’” by Michael Romain, OakPark.com, January 6, 2021:

During a special board meeting held Dec. 22, members of the District 200 school board apologized to Oak Park resident Dima Ali and formally denounced comments made by D200 board member Matt Baron that many community members said caused harm to Ali and other Muslim and non-white Oak Parkers.

The controversy dates to a comment written by Ali in November under a Wednesday Journal news article about Oak Park Trustee Dan Moroney, which was posted to Facebook. In her comment, Ali called Moroney a white supremacist.

Baron, who knows Moroney, contacted Wednesday Journal and urged the paper to remove the Facebook comment before submitting an opinion piece to the paper in which he compared Ali’s comment to someone leaving duffle bags in public places — code for terrorism. Ali is Muslim, a fact that Baron subsequently said he did not know at the time he wrote the piece.

Baron issued a written apology roughly a week later, calling his analogy “far too intense” and “needlessly over-the-top as I sought to stir people in this community to push back on unfair character attacks.”

During brief comments made at a Dec. 3 Committee of the Whole meeting, Baron said his metaphor was “intended to provoke bystanders like those who click like or love in response to the white supremacist label,” before doubling down on what he called his “key point — let’s stop the racial identity politics.”

In her remarks made during the Dec. 22 special meeting, Ali said she was disappointed by the board’s delayed response to Baron’s comments and called for his resignation.

“An Islamophobic board member should not be sitting right now like this,” she said, adding that she felt the board failed its marginalized students and community members by not condemning Baron’s remarks more swiftly.

“We’re not terrorists,” said Ali, who is also an Oak Park and River Forest High School parent. “We are your neighbors. … We’re your friends. In this community, we don’t drop suspicious duffel bags, we drop off bags full of donations. We drop off food, soup to any sick friend and community member.”

After Ali’s remarks, D200 board President Sara Dixon Spivy read a statement on behalf of the board majority that “formally denounced” Baron’s opinion piece, adding that Baron also “failed to recognize the impact and harm” of his opinion piece in his subsequent board comments.

The board said Baron’s “racist and Islamophobic remarks directly conflict with this board’s belief in racial equity and inclusion,” adding that they have also “undermined ongoing efforts” made by the district to advance its mission of improving equity and inclusion, and creating a “culture of warmth” for all OPRF students and community members….

Institute for Good Governance: Votes Switched throughout U.S. 2020 Presidential Race

Senior IT Expert at Global Defense Contractor Testifies in Italian Federal Court; He and Others Switched Votes throughout America in the U.S. Presidential Race

Rome, Italy (January 5, 2021) – An employee of the 8th largest global defense contractor, Leonardo SpA, provided a shocking deposition detailing his role in the most elaborate criminal act affecting a US election. Corroborating the DNI Ratcliff’s report of international intrusion, Arturo D’elio outlined the scheme that proved successful in using Leonardo computer systems and military satellites located in Pescara, Italy. Recent reports of a hack at Leonardo now appear to have been an orchestrated cover to mitigate blowback on the corporation which is partially owned by the Italian government.

Nations In Action, a government transparency organization, partnered with the Institute of Good Governance to thoroughly investigate and research the election irregularities which yielded the long awaited proof that a flawless plot to take down America was executed with extraordinary resources and global involvement. Americans and elected officials now have proof that the election was indeed stolen.

This provides the mechanism for each state to recall their slate of electors immediately or face lawsuits and request all federal government agencies to lock down all internal communications, equipment and documentation from the Rome Embassy. “Make no mistake, this is a coup d’etat that we will stop in the name of justice and free and fair elections,” stated Maria Strollo Zack, Chairman of Nations in Action.

The Institute for Good Governance issued the following statement:

Our mission is to provide the full truth, expose the perpetrators of this horrific crime, and ensure that every person involved, regardless of position, be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Nations In Action and the Institute for Good Governance are making the following demands on elected officials:

• Depose State Department officials starting with Rome staff including Stefan Serafini
• Immediately strip Leonardo SpA of all contracts and seize assets
• All congressional members must speak out against this foreign and domestic interference or face recalls and suspicion of involvement
• Implement the most severe penalties for participants who had knowledge or participated and refuse to assist in the investigation

Maria Strollo Zack, founder of Nations In Action added, “States must prosecute all illegal voting activities and provide immediate legislative remedies. There can only be zero tolerance for criminal interference in American elections. This international conspiracy must be met with swift action by the President and be fully supported by elected officials for the protection of voting integrity and the prosperity of our great nation.”

President Trump Responds to Twitter’s Permanent Account Suspension

Clever boy caught them unawares.

Trump Responds to Twitter’s Permanent Account Suspension

By Mimi Nguyen Ly, The Epoch Times, January 8, 2021:

President Donald Trump responded to Twitter’s move to permanently suspend his account from its platform late Friday, condemning the big tech giant and saying that it does not stand for free speech.

The president also said he anticipates a “big announcement” soon and that his team is negotiating with other sites and is also looking at building a separate platform.

“As I have been saying for a long time, Twitter has gone further and further in banning free speech, and tonight, Twitter employees have coordinated with the Democrats and the Radical Left in removing my account from their platform, to silence me—and YOU, the 75,000,000 great patriots who voted for me,” Trump said in a statement.

“Twitter may be a private company, but without the government’s gift of Section 230 they would not exist for long,” he added.

“I predicted this would happen. We have been negotiating with various other sites, and will have a big announcement soon, while we also look at the possibilities of building out our own platform in the near future. We will not be SILENCED!” he said.

“Twitter is not about FREE SPEECH. They are all about promoting a Radical Left platform where some of the most vicious people in the world are allowed to speak freely,” Trump continued. “STAY TUNED!”

The statement came from the account @POTUS but the Twitter posts were gone within a few minutes.

“Using another account to try to evade a suspension is against our rules,” Twitter said in a statement to news outlets. “We have taken steps to enforce this with regard to recent Tweets from the @POTUS account.”

“For government accounts, such as @POTUS and @WhiteHouse, we will not suspend those accounts permanently but will take action to limit their use.”

Publishers can be held liable for any content they post, but social media platforms and tech companies are protected by the Communications Decency Act‘s Section 230, which provides blanket liability protections from content generated by third-party users.

Twitter late on Friday permanently suspended Trump’s Twitter account @realDonaldTrump, citing violation of its “Glorification of Violence” policy. It cited two of the president’s most recent posts as justification for its action.

The first post read, “The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!”

Subsequently, the president posted, “To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th.” This was the last Twitter post before Trump’s account was removed from the platform.

Twitter said that the two posts had violated its “Glorification of Violence policy,” which aims to “prevent the glorification of violence that could inspire others to replicate violent acts.”

Its assessment determined that Trump’s last two Twitter posts are “highly likely to encourage and inspire people to replicate the criminal acts that took place at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.” Twitter said its determination is “based on a number of factors,” including five points it listed in its statement.

The Epoch Times cannot independently verify the claims made by Twitter in its determination. The Epoch Times has reached out to Twitter asking whether it had any evidence that Trump’s statements were directly linked to any violence. Twitter did not immediately respond.

The White House and the president have on Jan. 7 both separately condemned the violence that broke out on Capitol grounds on Jan. 6, when lawmakers gathered for a joint session of Congress to count and certify electoral votes from the Nov. 3, 2020, election. The events of the day left at least five dead, three of whom died due to medical reasons, according to DC police.

“America is and must always be a nation of law and order. The demonstrators who infiltrated the Capitol have defiled the seat of American democracy,” Trump said. “To those who engaged in acts of violence and destruction, you do not represent our country. And to those who broke the law, you will pay.”

Earlier in the day, Twitter suspended the accounts of former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and lawyer Sidney Powell, citing “Coordinated Harmful Activity.” Powell told The Epoch Times that there “was no warning at all” about her account being deleted.

The account deletions suggest that Big Tech firms, including Twitter, are moving to suspend or penalize the accounts of people on their platforms who post claims of voter fraud and irregularities about the Nov. 3, 2020, election.

There have also been multiple claims by various Twitter accounts of having lost followers, sometimes in the thousands, within the past 24 hours.

Brandon Straka, the head of the conservative WalkAway movement, told The Epoch Times Friday that Facebook removed the group’s page and banned individual accounts belonging to the team.

ABC News Calls for ‘Cleansing’ of Trump Supporters in Terrifying Piece

Desperate franticness. Why?

ABC News Calls for ‘Cleansing’ of Trump Supporters in Wake of Capitol Incursion

As part of the Democratic Party, establishment media and Washington swamp campaign to tear down the legacy of President Donald Trump this week, the political director for ABC News called for a “cleansing” of Trump’s movement.

By Kipp Jones, Western Journal,  January 8, 2021:

Rick Klein, who is the rudder on the corrupt ABC News political coverage ship, must have been feeling awfully emboldened Thursday after Democrat Joe Biden was officially certified as the country’s next president. Perhaps a little too emboldened, as is evident by what he said on Twitter.

“Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days. The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part. Cleansing the movement he commands is going to be something else,” Klein said in a tweet, which he later deleted.

Thank the good lord for screen shots.

Thursday on the website’s political analysis page “The Note,” Klein and Mary Alice Parks, ABC News deputy political director, co-wrote a piece that called for a similar “cleansing” of the Trump movement before it was later stealthily edited to change that vague and dark language, Fox News reported.

Pointing to Wednesday’s Capitol incursion as a reason to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office or impeach him, Klein and Parks wrote, “Even aside from impeachment and 25th Amendment talk, Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days. The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part.”

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

That last section originally read, “Cleansing the movement he commands, or getting rid of what he represents to so many Americans, is going to be something else.”

ABC News and Klein cleaned up their creepy genocidal language, but the veil is off, and we know who they are. We know that these people want.

The majority of the establishment media wants a one-party state where every man, woman and child knows his or her place. Trump’s awakening of the GOP base and others is a threat to that, and it became even more threatening after he began successfully courting Democratic voters last year.

Leftists have used words such as “reconciliation” and “re-education” with regard to how to deal with us since the election. Now ABC News has called for a “cleansing” of the political movement the president created.

While for most of us that movement equates to a robust economy, individual liberty, national sovereignty and a strong military, the hateful establishment media always viewed it as a threat to the status quo.

The actions of a relatively small number of Trump supporters at the Capitol on Wednesday have given these people what they view as a valid reason to delegitimize every one of the tens of millions of Americans who voted against the corrupt Washington and media establishment.

Rogue conservatives roaming the halls of Congress is exactly what the corporate media wanted. Remember, this is the same establishment media that joined Democrats in inciting or excusing violence for a great deal of last year, and even before that.

Save for the late Peter Jennings, ABC News has always been awful. The network never attempted to hide its bias during the election or during the four years when Trump was called “illegitimate” and a Russian plant. Klein was silent as fake news stories led the coverage for four years, and he never denounced Biden for going around talking about punching people — but now the mask is off.

Klein and his colleagues want to put us all in a corner and shame us over the D.C. spectacle, which 99.9 percent of us were not a party to. We can’t ask valid questions about election integrity if we’re all too afraid to show our faces, and maybe that’s the point. The Klein message highlights the depths of the establishment media’s desperation to make us go away and fall in line. No thanks.

It was the corporate media and its sponsors, Democrats, and those who threw bricks and molotov cocktails for months on end who brought shame to our republic, not Trump or the movement he has led. That’s an inconvenient fact that is being written over in a mad dash to turn the president’s legacy into ash by attempting to portray him as a man who simply spent four years inciting a riot.

It’s a lie, just like all the others. Let the dust settle and don’t be shamed.

Shopify Bans Trump Store. Has the Marginalization of Trump Support Begun?

“What will happen next is obvious,” wrote Ben Domenech in the Transom: “A total crushing anti-Free Speech effort that treats Trump-supporting groups like Branch Davidians.” Indeed. In fact, it has already begun: on Thursday morning, according to journalist Walter Bloomberg, “Trump Organization’s http://TrumpStore.com Is Taken Offline by Shopify; Trump Campaign’s Ecommerce Site Is Also Closed by Shopify; Shopify Says It Closed Websites Associated With President Trump After Riot at Capitol.”

Not being familiar with either Shopify or the Trump Store and wanting to see what kinds of things it sold, I clicked on the link in Bloomberg’s tweet, only to get the notice that “This shop is unavailable.” Apparently the Trump Store website is run through Shopify, which describes itself as “the all-in-one commerce platform to start, run, and grow a business,” unless, apparently, one’s political views are undesirable.

So while I was unable to discover what exactly the Trump Store sells, I rather doubt that it’s balaclavas, Molotov cocktail mix, and maps to the Capitol. The people who work for the Trump Store have nothing to do with President Trump’s claimed incitement of mob violence at the Capitol yesterday. They are now essentially being deprived of a livelihood, at least temporarily, because the political and media establishment would have us believe that anything associated with Donald Trump is irremediably tainted. Shopify and its ilk seem to be working from the assumption that allowing anything connected with Trump a platform is apparently tantamount to accepting and even propagating the noxious brew of racism, xenophobia and “hate” that is all support for Trump is about, as far as they’re concerned.

Shopify is clearly just the beginning. Also on Thursday, Rick Klein, political director at ABC, tweeted: “Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days. The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part. Cleansing the movement he commands is going to be something else.” Klein didn’t say how he proposed to “cleanse” Trump supporters. Special showers, maybe? Or is it just our brains that he wants to wash? In any case, Klein is just the latest prominent Leftist to call for the reeducation of Trump supporters, and it is worth noting that neither Joe Biden nor Kamala Harris, nor any other Democrat leader, has dismissed, much less condemned, this idea.

As David Horowitz has memorably put it, “Inside every progressive is a totalitarian screaming to get out,” and at this point it’s clear: They’ve gotten out. The Left seems to be bent on criminalizing and thereby marginalizing all opposition to its agenda, and that will require pretending that every Trump supporter is the maniac redneck with a gun of Leftist fiction, just itchin’ to get inside that thar Capitol building and bag some Democrat varmints and then, power secured, go out and oppress blacks and women. It’s a lurid and ridiculous fantasy, of course, but Democrat leaders are today in no mood to treat opposition to high taxes and support for secure borders and protection of the First and Second Amendments as if they were any more reasonable. It is much easier to silence one’s opposition, and not be challenged in doing so, once one has succeeded in portraying him as evil in the eyes of the world — irrational, tending to violence, and well beyond the bounds of acceptable discourse and behavior.

The Left has done this for years. The Southern Poverty Law Center’s hit list of “hate groups,” treated by the social media giants as an infallible index to what is lawful and what is prohibited, is a sophisticated, well-financed, ongoing exercise in defamation and libel, seeking to drive individuals and groups from public life and destroy them utterly without discussion or appeal, solely because they do not reflect the Left’s worldview, agenda, and goals. With all the certainty of medieval Churchmen burning heretics at the stake, and with less opportunity afforded them to respond to the charges and clear their name, the SPLC has become the Inquisition of our age, identifying heretics on the right and burning them accordingly.

But the SPLC’s activities have been restricted to a relatively small number of conservative groups and individuals. Now, with their Reichstag Fire of Trump supporters in Capitol building yesterday, the Left is moving quickly to expand the heretics list by about 75 million people. Once these thought criminals are identified, these new Inquisitors will duly destroy their lives, and thus ensure the purity of the new totalitarian order. And why not? There is nothing and no one who can stop them now.

VIDEO: Gab’s Statement on Apple and Google’s Tyranny

In an email Gab News stated:

If your business is built on the backs of Silicon Valley tyrants (Apple, Google, et al) they can and will attempt to destroy you if and when you become a threat to their interests.

They did this to Gab. Then Fortnite. Now Parler.

Terrible content of all kinds is available on Twitter and Facebook.

Everyone on the planet knows this fact.

Yet both companies are on both App Stores.

Apple banning Parler is not the neutral implementation of some objective standard, but rather a cynical, politically motivated gesture and evidence of Silicon Valley elites’ disdain for ordinary Americans.

The solution, as always, is not government.

It is to build your own.

People mock this meme, but Gab lives it.

While others whine, we build.

Meet the Gab Phone.

Yes, it’s real.

The Big Tech data mining silo must come down.

We will no longer be serfs on your digital plantation.

You will no longer control our digital destiny.

You can’t stop the signal.

Stay tuned for pre-order information.

So it begins! President Trump Banned from Twitter Permanently

The Leftist Tech Giants and their Democrat Socialist/Commie enablers may well find out what the founding fathers were getting at when they designed the First Amendment to the Constitution:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

They knew that when people are silenced and their views forced underground that violence would soon follow.

Free speech is how we blow off steam!

However, the fools now running wild in Big Tech are too young and too stupid to know what history has told us repeatedly.

From Breitbart:

Twitter Permanently Bans President Donald Trump

Twitter has permanently banned the account of the president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.

“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” said Twitter in a statement.

Twitter previously removed a video from the president that called on his supporters to peacefully disperse and respect law an order, which the president posted less than an hour after reports that D.C.’s Capitol Hill was in the process of being stormed.

The president reiterated his condemnation of violence the next day.

This comes after Facebook and Instagram along with other big tech platforms indefinitely suspended the president’s access, cutting off a key line of communication between the president and the citizens of this country.

For more than four years, Breitbart News has reported on the rapidly increasing, undemocratic power of Silicon Valley companies, and their growing determination to interfere in the political affairs of the United States and other countries.

More here.

Most patriots still on Twitter like me (I am a small fry there) are losing followers by the hundreds (me, nearly 1,500 in the last few days) and thousands (James Woods, tens of thousands) literally overnight.

Surely Twitter is targeting us, but I suspect some of the loss has to do with the droves of people now leaving Twitter as Trump’s tweets were a magnet for them in the first place.

Driving Trump underground is sheer foolishness.

In one twenty-four period Twitter reduced my followers by 63,000.

The purge is on and unabashed in its ruthlessness.

Silencing voices is a sign of tyranny. The only sure truth about Twitter is that it is most decidedly not an unbiased “forum” for free speech.

— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) January 9, 2021

Many patriots are moving to Parler, however news was bad there last night as the site was down entirely.  I don’t know if it is up today, but they may not last long:

From Engadget:

Apple and Google crack down on Parler after violent threats

Apple and Google have told the “free speech” social media app Parler that it must begin moderating its users content, following violence at the US Capitol this week. The app — a Twitter alternative popular among Donald Trump supporters and the far-right —  has faced renewed scrutiny for its role in the planning of the attacks. [What “planning?”  Where are the reports of “attack” planning?—ed].

On Friday, as pressure grew for Apple and Google to remove it from their stores, Google suspended Parler from the Play Store, citing “continued posting in the Parler app that seeks to incite ongoing violence in the U.S.”

More here.

Next, citing the (embarrassing to the Democrats) invasion of the Capitol on Wednesday, they will take away our right to assemble….

Gee where in history have we learned about these fascist and communist tactics to drive political opposition underground—places where it never went well.

YouTube Escalates War on Free Speech

The sad events of January 6 have provided Big Tech another excuse to ramp up their censorship. For example, the next day, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki announced new policies for the video platform, explaining they would apply a “strike” and temporary account suspension for anyone posting a “false claim,” and that with three strikes accounts would be permanently removed.

Notably, Wojcicki did not restrict this new policy to election fraud. Any “false claim,” from election fraud to a doctor talking about alternative therapies to treat COVID-19, or whatever, is subject to the new policy. Bear in mind the thin, often imperceptible line between fact and opinion, and the significance of what YouTube has done is magnified.

But censorship is busting out all over. Facebook and Twitter have both just banned President Trump’s accounts. If these platforms, which still attract the vast majority of social media users in America, can ban the President of the United States, they can ban anyone. For anything.

These high profile acts of censorship mask more subtle operations on lesser known victims. Earlier this week we marveled at YouTube’s tolerance of an interview with Catherine Austin Fitts, a financial entrepreneur and former high ranking official with HUD. Fitts offered dystopian but informative thoughts on where the world is headed, in a 48 minute interview that covered the topics of economic authoritarianism, the future of the U.S. dollar, transhumanism, global elites, and – gasp – how the COVID pandemic is providing an excuse to institute controls necessary to convert the planet from democratic processes to technocracy.

Between 12/22/2020 and 1/06/2021, the video earned nearly 3.0 million views.

And then it was gone.

Nothing Fitts had to say ought to be forbidden speech. The fact that it was taken down just raises Fitts credibility, at the same time as it fuels conspiracy theories, because there is no reasonable explanation for why YouTube would unilaterally disable a video with content that appears to be nothing more than harmless speculation.

This particular YouTube interview could not be found elsewhere. But Fitts does have a robust presence on alternative platforms. Find much of the same topics being explored by Fitts by entering her name into the search box on BitChute. Decide for yourself if her thoughts ought to be cancelled by the Big Tech overlords.

Here is What I Saw in Washington, D.C. Yesterday . . .

I have already heard from some of my faithful readers wanting to know what happened in our once beautiful capital city***.

This will be a short report today because I would like to see more facts about what really went down at the Capitol.

I spent the morning near the White House waiting with hundreds of thousands of peaceful patriots to hear the President speak.

Here is a screenshot of where I was. This view is what the President could see.  But, even this photo taken at 8:35 a.m. does not begin to show how massive the protest gathering was, especially when the President took the stage hours later.

Here is the Youtube video of the scene (which Youtube might eventually scrub):

President Trump was scheduled for eleven, but didn’t speak until noon.

Although the temperature was in the moderate low 40’s, most everyone appeared to be pretty darn cold as they waited for many hours in an absolute stunning sea of flags and banners of all sorts.

When the President finished, most of this massive crowd began moving toward the Capitol building where some Members of the House and Senate were attempting to present a case that the election might(!) have been a fraud.

I was not at the Capitol, but like you, saw the images on TV after getting home.

I’ll show you more pictures as the days go on, but here are a few that I took while mingling around a crowd that was largely working class Americans of all ages. The “deplorables” according to the elitists in the Democrat Party.

The Chinese Communist Party menace!

You will see that I was most interested in the Chinese-American presence (Vietnamese-Americans who have first hand experience with Communism were also out) showing their support for this President, the only hope they see to keep the Chinese Communist Party from gaining a greater foothold in America.


As for what happened in the afternoon at the Capitol building at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue, we need to wait until there is more information.

Of course none of us condone violence of any sort, but if it turns out that Trump supporters are largely responsible, I ask the ruling class WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?  when on both sides of the elite political aisle, these Americans who love Trump have been disrespected while they watched as our weak leaders failed to criticize the violence for most of last year perpetrated by the Leftists—Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

And, the final insult to them, to the country class, was the great Election Steal of 2020 which unseated the one political leader they see as truly liking them and caring about them as he puts America first!

*** When I say once beautiful city, I am referring to the Washington, DC where I lived in my late 20s and where I took my children for field trips and trips to the Kennedy Center where a homeless encampment is within view of it now and where store fronts are boarded up.

My friends and I remarked that we may never be back.  Yesterday might have been our last site of it.

P.S. It sure looks like I will be busy writing at Refugee Resettlement Watch going forward.
