If FB and the like want to preserve what little reputation they have left, they damn well ought to suppress the garbage spewing from them. Note that I said suppress, not censor. A private entity cannot censor; the garbage is free to flow to Qanonbook. Biden cannot single-handedly censor any public media; nor will Congress do it.

There is "total fascism" going on right now and you seem unaware of it.

Trump is not part of the problem either, far as I can tell.

The press is now just an obedient lapdog of a fascist world state. There is no justice, and the press is not free. It's obvious, and blatant.

There is a heavy censorship, we all know that, and the manipulated bullchit reins on a massive scale.

Regarding Covid19 here is the real McCoy.

and those stupid stifling masks. A genuine mark of submission and obedience in the light of bullchit and lies.

The government (and the "free press") should be advising people how to be improving their immune systems, and how to shelter those with compromised immune systems from being infected.

"social distancing" is very unsocial, and totally fuks up the world economy or hasn't anyone deduced that yet? It's a great control mechanism for a big population of people though, along with promoting the nazi gestapo style snitches. Again there is ziltch real science to show that "social distancing" does any good apart from the compromised academia who are also willing lapdogs for the "one world" nazi government currently underway and well advanced.

There is no press reports to suggest anybody should boost their immune systems... the only real way to stave off a viral infection. Ten's of thousands of medical professionals views are being censored and repressed. That is not science. Real science welcomes controversy. When I heard the lockstep reports in the press in January, just like 911, it was already a screaming red flag we were being sold a narrative and story. The evidence of pre planning is thicker then flies on dogchit.

And the Associated Press even calls the USA presidential election these days ?.... seemingly so.

According to my understanding of the USA republic, that is not how the presidential election is called.

Meet a new totally fascist fuhrer and the ideology behind what is going on.

Complete with the Eugenics agenda and "one world government" along with vaccines and implanted identity chips.

and so the need to control the media and have the "fact check" facility implemented.

this is the controlled media bit.

the whole video.

The plan is to control every aspect of every human life. Total slavery, and it's a well advanced crusade, and Covid19 is a leading part it all.

Corbett is no Trump maga supporter either, far from it.

Sadly, Orwell was too accurate. These days it's all about the leader holding up three fingers and telling you there is four fingers showing.

Trump is not part of the problem. He did his bit as being part of the solution and Soros et al didn't like it.

Trump spells it out "never let radical socialism control every aspect of out lives". He may have failed, but it was a valiant attempt.

part of this speech.

Amazing that FB, Twitter etc. did not and still hasn't censored the mile high piles of lies concerning Assange, Snowden, Steele Dossier, etc.

Whatever. I only read Twitter links for laughs, and don't do Facebook. I don't have time for that dreck, and if others do, that's on them.

Pelosi Apologizes, Cancels Dem Dinner Party As She And Newsom Skewered As Hypocrites

by Tyler Durden
Sat, 11/14/2020 - 13:00

Despite her assurances that Capitol Hill physicians had signed off, and that the dinner would follow a laundry list of COVID-19 social distancing restrictions, Nancy Pelosi ended up cancelling a dinner for new incoming Democratic House members, offering a hasty apology to outraged liberal allies.

After several conservative blogs and media outlets pointed out the hypocrisy of Pelosi's explanation (which happened to coincide with a similar incident involving Gavin Newsom and a staffer's birthday party), Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill announced Friday night that the dinner had been canceled. Of course, the cancellation came only after the backlash; when reporters first questioned Pelosi and her staff about the dinner, she offered a laundry list of excuses.

Instead of holding the dinner in-person, House members would receive "take out" meals and simply head back to wherever they're staying while they're in town for orientation, Hammill said.

Our office strictly follows the guidance of the Office of Attending Physician, including for this dinner. To be a further model for the nation, this event has been modified to allow Members-elect to pick up their meals to go in a socially-distanced manner.

— Drew Hammill (@Drew_Hammill) November 13, 2020 As the Gateway Pundit pointed out, the decision followed reports from an ABC News journalist questioning the wisdom of the event.

House Dem and GOP leaders are holding respective dinners for new members.

. @SpeakerPelosi told me it’s safe. “It’s very spaced,” she said and there is enhanced ventilation and the Capitol physician signed off.

— Leigh Ann Caldwell (@LACaldwellDC) November 13, 2020 Highlighting the hypocrisy among Democratic politicians who have been the most vocal proponents for returning to lockdown, or lockdown-light, conditions.

We are in this together.

Protect yourself and loved ones.

Continue to #StayAtHome, practice social distancing and #WearAMask ??.

— House Democrats (@HouseDemocrats) November 13, 2020 Yahoo News reporter Hunter Walker also slammed the Speaker for appearing hypocritical by sending out an email to constituents claiming "mask wearing and social distancing is essential."

As she convenes an indoor dinner for new House members, Nancy Pelosi just sent an email to her constituents that says, "We must still work to crush the virus with the ... mask wearing and social distancing that are essential to preventing tens of thousands of needless deaths."

— Hunter Walker (@hunterw) November 13, 2020 NYT opinion editor and "1619 Project" mastermind also wasn't thrilled.

Imagine telling families not to hold Thanksgiving (we shouldn’t) and then doing this. Come. On.

— Ida Bae Wells (@nhannahjones) November 13, 2020

Pelosi wasn't the only Democrat apologizing. California Gov. Gavin Newsom has delivered a more detailed apology after catching heat for attending a birthday dinner for one of his top staffers.

"While our family followed the restaurant’s health protocols and took safety precautions, we should have modeled better behavior and not joined the dinner," he said in a statement, according to The Washington Post.

To be sure, Republicans are believed to have held a similar welcome dinner this week. However, given that the GOP has mostly opposed tight restrictions to stop the virus, the sharp glare of hypocrisy has not redounded on them.

Lori Lightfoot Tells Chicago: Cancel Thanksgiving, Avoid Family, Days After Hosting Crowded Biden Street Party

by Tyler Durden
Sat, 11/14/2020 - 17:10

Chicago mayor and "woke" intellectual giant Lori Lightfoot, who has let her city go to complete hell in a handbasket over the course of the last 6 months, has defended her call for Chicago residents to cancel their "traditional" Thanksgiving plans in a display that the arrogance of liberal politicians knows no bounds.

Her decision comes not even a week after she was seen amidst a large crowd on Chicago streets partying on the heels of a Joe Biden Presidential victory.

This is a great day for our city and our country. We are taking our democracy back. #BidenHarris2020

— Lori Lightfoot (@LoriLightfoot) November 8, 2020

Lightfoot issued a "Stay-at-Home Advisory for Chicago" which goes into effect November 16, 2020 at 6:00AM last week.

She told residents to "stay home unless for essential reasons", to "stop having guests over - including family members" and to "cancel traditional Thanksgiving plans".

She was asked about the hypocrisy of shutting down her city days after rallying large crowds by MSNBC's Steph Ruhle last week.

Ruhle asked: "One of the reasons people feel frustrated or skeptical is they are getting a lot of mixed messages. What do you say to those who are criticizing you were less than a week ago you went out and stood before a massive crowd who was celebrating Joe Biden’s victory and now you’re saying your city has to shut down? How do you have one and not the other?"



Receive a daily recap featuring a curated list of must-read stories.

Lightfoot defended her decision by saying people were "traumatized" and it was a "time people needed relief" and to "come together":

"But, yes, there are times when we actually do need to have relief and come together, and I felt like that was one of those times. That crowd was gathered whether I was there or not. But this has been a super hard year on everyone. Everyone feels traumatized."

So clearly, Lightfoot believes crowded streets offer relief from being "traumatized", but getting together with family to have a meal and take note of what you're thankful for - well, that's just too much.
