Thanks to the toxic and vitriolic nature of the naturally-divisive mainstream media, a great many Americans have completely forgotten what it means to be American first.
Instead, we see venom being spit at one another from the far corners of our political spectrum. Democrats and republicans are now somehow worse than the metaphorical cats and dogs that are often used to describe warring factions of the population. We act as if our neighbors and our loved ones are somehow on a different team from us – a false dichotomy being propped up by the infotainment industry for their financial gain.
Politics on television is nothing more than sport. The media pits us against one another in order to exploit our emotions. We watch pundits scream at one another in primetime, under the lights, hoping that our side can muster a solid defense, score a few points, and maybe land that knockout haymaker.
We live vicariously through this rollercoaster of rhetoric, and the fat cats atop the infotainment industry use their emotional exploitation to sell commercials and advertising space.
Too often, these media miscreants go too far, as the New York Times learned this week after revealing information that could be used to identify a White House whistleblower.
We The People were furious, and took to Twitter to let that sentiment be known.
What is the Times' goal in exposing the author of a #WhistleblowerComplaint whom the President wants to retaliate against?
I'm glad I already took the time #CancelNYT earlier this year.

The New York Times exposed themselves as a deeply anti-American entity today. You hate to see it.#CancelNYT

The greatest hits of the #NYT:
*enhanced interrogation instead of torture
*cheering the war with Iraq
*peddling anti-Arab racism in its oped page
*humanizing white supremacists & excluding survivor stories
And today – outing a whistleblower. Journalism at its finest. #CancelNYT

This is not about politics or partisanship; this is about the greed of the media machine and their willingness to subvert their ethics in order to make a buck.
President Trump has indicated that nothing untoward occurred during the phone call mentioned in the whistleblower complaint, and has taken the appropriate steps toward transparency in this matter. He is not concerned about what the left is alleging, and is working to prove that he has acted only in the best interests of our nation.
Ergo, the President is unafraid of this whistleblower. There is no need for their identity to become known, as the truth shall set Trump free.
Instead of allowing this latest scandal to become more water-off-the-back of the President, the New York Times has eschewed every bit of their journalistic integrity to partially out a legally-protected whistleblower for either money or fame – with either decision being a disgrace to this nation.
The Washington Post was quick to take advantage of the scandal.

It seems as though the Twitter revolt created real-world results as well.
I am told the NYT cancellation wait time on the phone is up to 130 minutes.

Again, we must remove our partisan goggles to fully understand what is at stake here.
We, as Americans who wish to preserve our inalienable freedom, must protect the rights of whistleblowers of the past, the present, and most importantly of the future. This is The Golden Rule come to life. We want government employees in the years to come to be able to come forward with information about any wrongdoing, regardless of whether that information may harm Team A or Team B, because the truth cannot harm Team America.
The President is not concerned. He is not frazzled. He is cooperating with this investigation, as ugly and as partisan as it may be, and the truth shall set him free.
And, as we stare down the inevitable failure of the democrats’ latest impeachment push, we realize that this will be just another feather in Trump’s MAGA cap heading into 2020.
The exposure of this whistleblower, however, is a sin that we as a nation must never again commit. This unfathomable betrayal could forever harm the oversight capabilities that We The People have over our government, which, might I remind you, will not be led by Donald Trump forever.
One day in the future, there may be another Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton-type character at the helm, committing actual nefarious misdeeds. We need the potential whistleblowers in those hypothetical cases to be unafraid of the New York Times in order to preserve our sacred liberty.

California Shutdown: Rogan Makes The Case For Moving To Texas
Joe Rogan says he is sincerely considering relocating from California to Texas in response to the state’s overly “restrictive” response to the and its “ridiculous” taxes.
“Here’s the thing, if California continues to be restrictive, I don’t know if this is a good place to live. First of all, it’s extremely expensive — the taxes here are ridiculous.”
On his popular podcast show Wednesday, host and comedian Joe Rogan said he is seriously considering relocating from California to Texas in response to the deep-blue state’s overly “restrictive” response to the and its “ridiculous” taxes.
“I might move to Texas,” Rogan said, citing serious previous discussions he’s had about it (video below).
“Here’s the thing, if California continues to be restrictive, I don’t know if this is a good place to live,” said the popular podcast host. “First of all, it’s extremely expensive — the taxes here are ridiculous.”
“And if they really say that we can’t do standup until 2022, or some sh** like that, I might jet,” he continued. “I’m not kidding. I’m not kidding. This is silly. I don’t need to be here.”
“The only reason why I’m here is because I’m close to people like you,” he added. “A lot of my friends live here, the [Comedy] Store is here. But if they won’t let us do the Store, but we can do stand up in other places, why would we stay here?”
Asked where in Texas he would consider moving, Rogan cited Austin and Dallas as potential landing spots. “I like Austin a lot, I like Dallas a lot. I like Houston, but I don’t know if I’d live in Houston,” he said, noting the humidity in the area. More

Toy Gun Causes Chaos After Zoom Class: ‘My Poor Kids Thought We Were Going To Be Arrested.”
Sheila Perez Smith told the Todd Starnes Show that she was astonished when the police showed up at her home after a zoom class another parent had been “very uncomfortable” with a toy gun in plain sight during the class.

Karen’s gonna Karen.
There’s really nothing worse than neighbors ratting out neighbors. But that’s what Democrats are urging citizens to do across the country. And more often than not innocent Americans are getting caught in the crosshairs.
Sheila Perez Smith tells the Todd Starnes Show that she was stunned when the police showed up at her home near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Mrs. Smith’s 7-year-old son had just completed a zoom class from the den of their home when she received an urgent email from her son’s first grade teacher.
It just so happened that the little boy had recently been gifted a toy gun and the child had placed his “new favorite thing” on the table next to the computer.
“Another parent had been very uncomfortable by the fact that the gun had been in view of the zoom call,” Mrs. Smith said on my radio show. “It’s such an innocent thing that someone used to make a judgment and an accusation.”
A few hours after they received the email, there was a knock at the front door. It was the police. More

As a child, I used to run around with friends playing “cops and robbers” with cap guns popping off caps everywhere. I guess today, they’d call in a SWAT team and put everyone in the neighborhood on lockdown. How very, very sad.
That was in Pennsylvania??? I mean, California or New Jersey, sure.. but PA?

Dennis Prager: Our Dress Rehearsal For A Police State
It truly is disconcerting how easily Americans have accepted erosion of our freedoms and civil rights in the name of public safety.
Dennis Prager says this is our dress rehearsal for a police state.
“The federal, state, county and city governments are now restricting almost every freedom except those of travel and speech. Americans have been banned from going to work (and thereby earning a living), meeting in groups (both indoors and outdoors), meeting in their cars in church parking lots to pray, and entering state-owned properties such as beaches and parks — among many other prohibitions.”

All my life, I have dismissed paranoids on the right (“America is headed to communism”) and the left (“It can happen here” — referring to fascism). It’s not that I’ve ever believed liberty was guaranteed. Being familiar with history and a pessimist regarding the human condition, I never believed that.
But the ease with which police state tactics have been employed and the equal ease with which most Americans have accepted them have been breathtaking.
People will argue that a temporary police state has been justified because of the allegedly unique threat to life posed by the new coronavirus. I do not believe the data will bear that out. Regardless, let us at least agree that we are closer to a police state than ever in American history.
“Police state” does not mean totalitarian state. America is not a totalitarian state; we still have many freedoms. In a totalitarian state, this article could not be legally published, and if it were illegally published, I would be imprisoned and/or executed.
But we are presently living with all four of the key hallmarks of a police state:
No. 1: Draconian laws depriving citizens of elementary civil rights. More
This is no dress rehearsal for a police state. In many states that is exactly what we already have. Dennis Prager is correct, the most frightening part is how quickly the American public has allowed it to happen.
Candace Owens Suspended from Twitter for Weighing in on Michigan Lockdown
This is the authoritarian technocracy at work, folks.
We need to stop thinking about social media as a place where we can freely express ourselves, and begin to ponder ways in which we can utilize these platforms to gauge tyranny.
You see, you can’t just say whatever you want on Twitter anymore. Or Facebook. Or even Instagram. Your thoughts are being monitored, and if your opinions are considered “invalid”, they will be removed from the conversation.
This will occur in spite of the business and exposure that you bring to the platform as well, so don’t think that being a big-name online is going to save you from the agenda set forth by these Orwellian clowns.
Conservative firebrand and BLEXIT founder Candace Owens was suspended from Twitter on Saturday after tweeting that people in Michigan should open their businesses and “go to work” despite the draconian measures implemented by Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) in response to the Chinese virus.
“Apparently [Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer] believes she is a duly elected dictator of a socialist country,” Owens had tweeted. “The people of Michigan need to stand up to her. Open your businesses. Go to work.”
“The police think she’s crazy too,” she added. “They are not going to arrest 10,000,000 people for going to work.”
Owens wasn’t even given an actual explanation.
On Saturday, Owens received a notification from Twitter informing her that her account was suspended over the aforementioned tweet.
“We determined this Tweet violated the Twitter Rules, specifically for:” read the notification, but did not further clarify which specific rules Owens had violated on the social media platform.
This is the authoritarian technocracy at work, folks.
Tucker Exposes How MSM And Dems Appear To Be Parroting Chinese Propaganda
Fox News host Tucker Carlson exposed how the media and Democrats appear to be parroting Chinese propaganda.
“Many in the intelligence world with experience in China suspected right away that the story the Chinese government was telling about this virus was almost certainly a lie.”
Tucker nails it!

Fox News host Tucker Carlson aired a segment that showed how a lot of the rhetoric being used by the mainstream media and Democratic Party matches the propaganda that the communist Chinese government is using to deflect blame over the coronavirus outbreak.
Carlson began the segment by reporting on what he says U.S. government officials have told him about the coronavirus outbreak that originated in China, and by also documenting how China has repeatedly changed its story about what happened.
Later in the segment, Carlson said, “As of today, says someone in a position to know, there is ‘Almost unanimous agreement in the American intelligence gathering agencies that the virus currently destroying much of the world emerged from a lab in Wuhan.’ Almost unanimous. That is a phrase almost never used to describe any conclusion coming out of the Intel Community.” More
All hysteria aside this virus originated in China—it’s a Chinese virus period. The MSM is the most despicable group of people on the planet.
The fact that they would pick up this propaganda and spread it without looking at the facts is a disgrace and a disservice to people who want to know the truth. They don’t really care about Americans.
How could they NOT know #covod19 was contagious via human to human contact.

Doctor From MIT Warns ‘Deep State’ Using Coronavirus Fear-Mongering

A decorated scientist with four degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology believes the coronavirus pandemic is being used by the “Deep State” for its own purposes.
Shiva Ayyadurai said on Twitter that “fear-mongering” over the outbreak is being used to push an agenda.
It is important to note that Ayyadurai did not say the disease is man-made or a hoax.
But what Ayyadurai did say is that some in the government are using the pandemic to frighten people into obedience.
Think about what has transpired in less than a week’s time. We have handed control of nearly everything in our lives to the government. More
It didn’t take long for me to see this as a means to ensure President Trump’s loss in 2020, but that’s not going to happen. Once again, Trump has outsmarted them all.

Bernie Tells Americans Exactly What Will Make Him Drop Out
The Democratic Party’s been trying to stop him for months, and now Bernie has told them exactly how to do it.
The Democratic Party is beginning to run out of time. They have only a few scant weeks to get their ducks in a row before the Democratic National Convention in order to avoid an abomination of a nomination.
The issue now is that the Democratic voters are clearly favoring Bernie Sanders for the nod, while the party establishment appears to be shoving Joe Biden down everyone’s throats. The friction has been a bit ugly to watch, like a slow motion fender bender that will see you rescheduling your entire afternoon before you know it.
But Sanders, to his credit, has been fairly honest about the process. He’s explained his expectations to his supporters explicitly, and has now told us precisely what would make him consider leaving the race altogether.
From his appearance on MSNBC earlier this week:
RACHEL MADDOW: If, at the end of the day, it turns out that Vice President Biden is going to have more delegates than you do heading into the convention, will you drop out?
SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Of course I’m gonna drop out; he will win. I mean, I suspect, we will run through the process, and I think people have a right to vote. But if Biden walks into the convention, or at the end of the process has more votes than me, he’s the winner.
MADDOW: And that’s true whether or not he has a majority or a just plurality?
SEN. SANDERS: Absolutely, that’s what I’ve said. Look, here’s the story, and there’s some confusion about this. Last time around in 2016, you talked about 2016, you’ll remember that before the very first vote was cast in Iowa, Hillary Clinton had 500 superdelegates at her side. She walked into the campaign with 500 superdelegates. I thought that was totally outrageous, absurd, and undemocratic. We fought very hard in the Democratic rules process to get rid of all superdelegates. That is my preference. I think it should be the decision of the people, not Washington insiders. We lost, but what we did get is not getting rid of all super delegates at the convention voting, but that on the first ballot there won’t be any superdelegates voting.
And there you have it, Democratic Deep State: The surefire way to make Bernie Sanders go away is to actually beat him in the primary. Who would have thunk it?
