This only happens in communist countries. Duh

The bad news is not the bad news, but that it will get worse.

Let us review.

CNN reported, "Parler, the alternative social media platform favored by conservatives, now finds itself virtually homeless on the internet as Amazon, Apple, and Google have all booted it from their platforms in a span of a little more than 24 hours.

"Amazon said it would remove Parler from its cloud hosting service, Amazon Web Services, Sunday evening, effectively kicking it off of the public internet after mounting pressure from the public and Amazon employees."

A reader in the natural gas business said his boss put its computers on Amazon Web Services a while ago. Today he asked him what happens when Jeff Bezos decides fossil fuels is an enemy of the state and dumps them?

It gets worse.

Cyber News reported, "Parler, a social network used to plan the storming of the U.S. Capitol last week, has been hit by a massive data scrape. Security researchers collected swaths of user data before the network went dark Monday morning after Amazon, Google, and Apple booted the platform. 

"The scrape includes user profile data, user information, and which users had administration rights for specific groups within the social network. Twitter user @donk_enby, who first announced about the scrape, claims that over a million video URLs, some deleted and private, were taken."

This is not the doing of some guy.

This was planned all along. This was part of the system Amazon and Jeff Bezos set up. The spying was embedded in the system.

And that is what you must bear in mind. All the actions taken since Wednesday were planned all along, as the communists awaited the opportunity to unleash the Actual Kraken.

Randall Lane, chief content officer and editor of Forbes, wrote that he will blacklist supporters of Donald John Trump.

Lane wrote, "As American democracy rebounds, we need to return to a standard of truth when it comes to how the government communicates with the governed. The easiest way to do that, from where I sit, is to create repercussions for those who don’t follow the civic norms. Trump’s lawyers lie gleefully to the press and public, but those lies, magically, almost never made it into briefs and arguments – contempt, perjury and disbarment keep the professional standards high.

"So what’s the parallel in the dark arts of communication? Simple: Don’t let the chronic liars cash in on their dishonesty. Press secretaries like Joe Lockhart, Ari Fleischer and Jay Carney, who left the White House with their reputations in various stages of intact, made millions taking their skills — and credibility — to corporate America. Trump’s liars don’t merit that same golden parachute. Let it be known to the business world: Hire any of Trump’s fellow fabulists above, and Forbes will assume that everything your company or firm talks about is a lie. We’re going to scrutinize, double-check, investigate with the same skepticism we’d approach a Trump tweet. Want to ensure the world’s biggest business media brand approaches you as a potential funnel of disinformation? Then hire away."

Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Republican Party?

The blacklisting has begun.

The New York State Bar Association announced it "Launches Historic Inquiry Into Removing Trump Attorney Rudy Giuliani From Its Membership." 

His crime is being a friend of Donald Trump's.

Reuters reported, "The head of the Federal Aviation Administration on Saturday vowed to take 'strong enforcement action' against unruly passengers following reports of supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump disrupting flights returning from Washington."

Their crime is booing Mitt Romney.

It gets worse.

PYMNTS.com reported, "Stripe will not be processing any more payments related to President Donald Trump's campaign website after last week's riot at the Capitol, which Trump helped to incite, The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday.

"Stripe, which handles card payments for millions of online businesses, booted the Trump campaign site and fundraising apparatus for violating the rule against inciting violence, according to WSJ."

Look for PayPal and your friendly neighborhood bank to go after you next.

A government that will force corporations to meet racial and sex quotas on their boards of directors and the executive suites will do nothing to stop discrimination against customers.

The diversity on the boards is designed to get more communists making such decisions.

And Republican apologists say private business can do what it wants.

Except make scented toilet paper.

Or toilet paper in pastel colors.

Or 10-gallon toilets.

Or showerheads that actually work.

Those are just the bathroom regulations.

What the unregulated Internet oligarchs and the online banking companies are doing is far worse and of actual consequence. This is fascism using the power of both the private and the public sectors to coerce people into obeisance. Chairman Xi perfected this.

It gets worse.

The Telegraph reported, "After months of stoking anger about alleged election fraud, one of America's largest talk-radio companies has decided on an abrupt change of direction.

"Cumulus Media, which employs some of the most popular right-leaning talk-radio hosts in the United States, has told its on-air personalities to stop suggesting that the election was stolen from President Donald Trump - or else face termination.

"A Cumulus executive issued the directive on Wednesday, just as Congress met to certify Joe Biden's election victory and an angry mob of Trump supporters marched on the Capitol, overwhelmed police and briefly occupied the building, terrorizing lawmakers and leading to the deaths of five people."

Profits do not matter because corporations are run by men who seek power not money. They have billions, what do they care if the next quarter shows a loss or Twitter's stock price falls a little or a lot?

They want to erase American history and America herself.

The corporate communists and DC acted with speed and overwhelming force to silence dissent. Republicans unleash shock and awe on foreign enemies. Democrats unleash shock and awe on their political opponents.

Stephen L. Miller wrote, "If Joe Biden and the media have any intent on ‘healing’ and ‘unifying’ post-Trump and Trumpism, they haven’t done much to show it. Maybe this is because it’s in the best interest of the Biden agenda, and the revenue of Big Tech, and the audience retention of the corporate media to keep us as we are — a nation divided."

That is a spot on observation. They won. They are Auric Goldfinger responding to 007 saying, "You expect me to talk?"

"No, Mr Bond, I expect you to die."

The communists are tired of us. They are bored by our insistence that this is the land of the free and the home of the brave. 2016 taught them the lesson that we can still rebel at the ballot box. They figured a way around that in 2020. 

First, they bought off Bernie and the gay mayor in the primaries. Then they installed Biden as the nominee. Finally, they stuffed mail-in votes in the ballot box. We went from 56% of the electorate voting in presidential elections to 67%. That topped the 61% who voted in LBJ's 1964 race. That 67% was the highest participation rate in a century. They called the increase ballot harvesting.

Now they own Washington including the Supreme Court as it turns out the justices the Heritage Foundation vouched for are the Three Stooges.

Communists are excellent at rousing the rabble. Scott Rasmussen reported, "43% of voters believe that President Donald Trump should be arrested after he leaves office. A nearly identical number — 44% — disagree. 13% are not sure."

In his column, he mentioned the conciliatory nature of Lincoln's second inaugural speech.

Yes, and a month later Democrats assassinated him.

It is up to Biden, not Donald Trump, to show malice toward none and charity for all. Biden won't because with great power comes the great ability to extract great vengeance.

As for the Republican cowards cowering in the corners of Congress, I offer this refrain from a Phil Ochs song from the 1960s:

Oh, look outside the window, there's a woman bein' grabbed
They've dragged her to the bushes, and now she's bein' stabbed
Maybe we should call the cops and try to stop the pain
But Monopoly is so much fun, I'd hate to blow the game
And I'm sure it wouldn't interest anybody
Outside of a small circle of friends

    2. No, no break-up. That's what Lincoln fought so hard to prevent. He and the troops (read their letters) knew that if they let the aristocratic society in the cotton south survive, it would come north as a conquering power somewhere down the road.

      Check out the by-county map of November. In terms of territory, it's much redder than even 2016. Any "break-up" that would keep red counties in the "blue confederacy" is unacceptable.

      Red states first, then liberate the red areas of blue states. Then finish off all those tiny little blue enclaves that are trying to rule over us. William Tecumseh Sherman would approve.

      Speaking of which, we need to burn Atlanta to the ground. Again.

  6. Phil Ochs often comes to mind, sigh. Saw him in Atlanta at the Great Southeast Music Hall in the mid-70s, not long before he killed himself. I can vividly remember marching to my ROTC classes in 1968 with his songs blaring out the dorm windows of my fellow freshman who were growing their hair long and revving up for the protests that were to come (culminating at Kent State in 1970, but I digress)

    All the verses of this song bear repeating, but I always liked this one the best:

    Smoking marihuana is more fun than drinking beer,
    But a friend of ours was captured and they gave him thirty years
    Maybe we should raise our voices, ask somebody why
    But demonstrations are a drag, besides we're much too high
    And I'm sure it wouldn't interest anybody

  15. How long until they disappear Harry Turtledove's book "Jos Steele"? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Steele_(novel)

    "Joe Steele is an alternate history novel by Harry Turtledove, first published by ROC Books/New American Library in hardcover and ebook form in April 2015.[1][2]It is an expanded version of the author's 2003 short story of the same name.[3]

    The original concept comes from a line in Janis Ian's song "God and the FBI" which says "Stalin was a Democrat." In the foreword, Turtledove explains that from hearing this song, he began to imagine reasons for Stalin to be a Democrat, and the story grew from there. Janis Ian was an editor of the original short story, and is the dedicatee of the resulting novel.

    The novel explores what might have happened had Joseph Stalin been raised in the United States, postulating his parents having emigrated a few months before his birth, instead of remaining in the Russian Empire. It depicts Stalin (in this history, taking the name Joe Steele) growing up to be an American politician, rising to the presidency and retaining it by ruthless methods through the Great Depression, World War II, and the early Cold War. The president is depicted as having the soul of a tyrant, with Stalin's real-world career mirrored by actions taken by Steele."

  18. Lies abound in AmeriKKKa. My hubby's sister posted this from a friend on her FB page:

    If you are a friend who still harbors the idea that this riot was equivalent to the peaceful BLM protests that were held in 2020 and was simply an expression of free speech, please rethink that. I know Fox News is not showing these images. They’d like you to believe another false narrative.”

  25. I'd say these are dark days for the Republic, but there is no Republic. There is just the Government electing the Government, so that Government of the Government, by the Government and for the Government should not perish from the Globe, Inc..

    The Capitol Police didn't fail. They succeeded with their assigned task, and wildly. As ordered, they escorted some Trump supporters into the Capitol to be mixed with the now-professional Antifa/BLM provocateurs in MAGA hats so Pelosi and Biden could smear 80 million voters as terrorists.

    It's as if King George had his own people dress as Indians and throw the tea in Boston Harbor, blame it on the colonists and then have his mega-corporate pals seize the Internet and shut down George Washington's Twitter account and quash the Federalist Papers. Cat videos will still be allowed, however--unless those kittens get too frisky. The new Ministry of Approved Cat Memes will decide for you.

    The people who sponsored riots all year, supported an Insurrection since President Trump took office and stole an election from the American People in broad daylight now portray themselves as victims. It's brilliant, really. That's why they stole the idea from the Nazis. And the Commies. The Nazis. And Commies. NaziCommiesNaziCommiesNaziCommies...the original Uni-Party. If you don't count the Tower of Babel-gang, that is.

    Even now, they are installing fenced walls around D.C. landmarks including the Supreme Court, even though Everybody Knows(tm) Walls Don't Work(tm). It's not being done to protect the buildings, but to protect The Narrative(tm).

    Think of it as the Great Wall of China, Inc.--the real winner of the election. BTW, they stole the House and Senate, too.

    It is fitting that Joe and his Jezebel should be installed inside a Gated Community tea party. The Government is their insider private country club, even if that country is China. So Joe will solemnly pledge to represent all Americans, even the ones he just cheated out of self-government. He's just thoughtful that way.

    How deep does this go? Mike Pence took a job and laid in wait for FOUR YEARS to plunge the knife in the back openly. Like a prizefighter bum, Judas Pence is the only vice-president in American history to secretly work to lose his own re-election. Brother, that's deep.

    The Pre-Planned Non-stop Hysteria(tm) is being used to hide Pelosi’s use of false-flag Antifa provocateurs in MAGA hats and especially to ban any talk of the massive Election Fraud.

  30. We are in a war, we need generals and strategy- and we need to do it fast. I am pretty dumb but here are some random thoughts.

    1. The Left is in clear panic mode, yes it seems like they are running us over, putting the car in reverse- just to run us over again but let's put a few reminders out there for morale. Our POTUS needs morale

    1. Trying to designate us as domestic terrorists is a pure scare tactic so keep cautious people away from rallies. Citizens in blue states should stay home, but I think Texas, Florida, and a few other states would not have any trouble with the Abbot or Santis at least. BIG rallies, even after Joe goes in, if he goes in. We can have teams looking for Antifa or trouble. I am sure there is clever way to do this.


    2. Economic warfare- Lets get a list of every single business going after conservatives, delete, boycott, spread the word. if we can get even 1/3 of the base off amazon, that's a message. United airlines needs us, we don't need them. Just look at Fox News ratings.

    3. Calling all hackers- We need to fund this war, and I have an idea of how to do so. We hack BLM and their mystery money. We can call it "reparations" for their fun last summer.

    4. Unleash the info warriors. Hopefully a declassication is on the way, when that happens, spread it like wildfire until there is no escape from the exposure. Make it worldwide. There are global citizens who are looking at this in horror and disgust, they will share the info. We need to shame these criminals into Exile until we get our court system back.

    5. Everyone go on the offensive, don't sit and wait for them to come for your blog, social or whatever. Turn off location, go dark on Apple, FB, Insta. Delete the apps. There are new platforms, we must organize somehow and this is where a smart person would be helpful...

    Just some thoughts. But I don't think the answer is 2024 or 2022. Its now or never. But we have the numbers, and we are on the right side of history. We tried to fix this lawfully. Now its time for Scorched earth.

    1. One suggestion: Stand back and let the Democrats destroy each other.

      There are ways of doing this. For instance, Hannibal after going over the top of the Alps with his Carthaginian/mercenary army, ordered that one Roman general's estate be burned to the ground, and to leave intact the other Roman general's estate, next door, alone. He counted on the Romans accusing the second general of having betrayed his own country.

      I am not literally suggesting that things be burnt down. This is a generality being offered. And the guiding principle will be, just as the bookies do with the bettors, stimulate their greed, and they will lose their heads and their money.
