Ron DeSantis Takes On Big Tech

Ron DeSantis takes on Big Tech, proposing sweeping legislation to punish censorship in the public square in the state of Florida.

Published

on

Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida announced on Tuesday that he’s introducing legislation to punish Big Tech companies who engage in censorship, de-platforming, and election interference through favouring one group of candidates form one party over another.

Conservatives are sounding the alarm over censorship on the following technology company platforms: Apple, Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Twitter. DeSantis and the members of the Florida legislature singled them out by name during a lengthy press conference.

DeSantis cited Big Tech’s coordinated de-platforming of the sitting President of the United States, and its takedown of the Parler App in under 24 hours, robbing millions of conservatives and other free speech advocates of their ability to communicate with each other, as the catalyst for his actions. Governor DeSantis has now sounded the alarm and said that in Florida, Big Tech would be on notice that it could no longer behave like an Orwellian Big Brother-type censor with impunity.

DeSantis called upon other states and the federal government to take similar action to protect America’s democracy and allow the marketplace of ideas to once again flourish. He was, however, adamant that regardless of the actions of other jurisdictions, Florida was going to penalize technology companies that engaged in censorship, de-platforming, or favouring candidates from one political party over another.

Florida is the nation’s 3rd largest state, and as such this step will have a significant impact on Big Tech’s ability to continue to censor conservatives and other free speech advocates, including progressives such as Glenn Greenwald and Alan Dershowitz. Videos obtained by Project Veritas at Facebook and Twitter have shown that the CEOs at both those organizations are biased against conservatives and here speech advocates, and see nothing wrong with de-platforming or silencing them.

It is interesting to note that there has been very little coverage of this by the legacy corporate media. There has also been little to no comment on this development by national Republicans or Democrats.

Republican voters say that their top issues going into the off year elections on 2021 and the mid-term elections of 2022 are election integrity and Big Tech censorship. DeSantis has clearly heard them, and this action sets him up to be re-elected to the Governorship of the state of Florida by a much wider margin than his narrow win in 2018. It is expected that DeSantis will win anywhere from 55-63% of the vote in Florida. Should he do this, he will likely be one of the front-runners for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2024.

Woke Leftists Get New Lefty Nickname Canceled – Let’s Make it Famous

Words have power. Every time someone says something goofy, call them “BlueAnon.” They’ll stop eventually.

Published

on

As a professional speaker and the author of 22 books, you can imagine that I am particular about words. One of the things that I’ve always thought that the left does better than the rate is to brand their opponent in a particular way by the words that they use. As we all know by now, they have turned the term QAnon into a pejorative word that they not only use for people who are fans of Q, but anyone who holds a conservative position. And frankly, it has worked. Now, when they want to dismiss something, they simply say, “That’s a bunch of QAnon stuff” and everyone nods their head and moves on without giving the thoughts any consideration.

Well, it is time to fight back. We need to use language that positions them. For example, when there were riots, I was one of the first people to call them “the Biden riots,” because they were. Most conservatives were uncomfortable with that.

Think about how the left can take something from two sides and make them look completely different: The events of January 6th are deemed an “insurrection.” The nine months of rioting, looting, torching buildings and cop cars, and killing people are deemed, “Peaceful protests.” This is how they win the war of words.

Now it is time for us to fight back on every front. One way we can do that is to brand anything left of center with the new nickname “BlueAnon.”

Will it be effective? I am guessing it will be, given how quickly the wokesters worked to get that name removed from Urban Dictionary. Check this before and after out:

Even Candace Owens is using it:

So folks, let’s make this famous. If they don’t want to hear it, hear it they will… everywhere. Words have power. Every time someone says something goofy, call them “BlueAnon.” They’ll stop eventually. Just like what they do to us.

What is the State of our Union?

… if the so-called President cannot deliver the State of the Union address?

Published

on

If Joe Biden gives a State of the Union address sometime this March, it will be late, based on precedence, but still in accordance with an 87-year tradition. All of which brings up the question: if Joe Biden does not deliver or cannot deliver a State of the Union address, is he truly the president?

In 38 days, he has not held a full press conference. Each of us who frequent Politicrossing and read the articles has known for quite a while that poor old Joe lacks the cognitive capability to handle the job. He is a mere puppet to a cabal of Leftists who want to irrevocably reshape America, and not in a good way.

So, the question arises, if Joe Biden does not deliver a State of the Union address this March, or, let’s say, even in February 2022, given that he lasts long enough, does anyone seriously believe he is the functioning president of the United States?

A President by any Other Name

If he does offer a State of the Union address this March, or next February, and he messes up terribly, as many of us suspect will happen, other than temporarily claiming the title, is he actually our president? If one lacks the capability to address the nation, with both houses of Congress, and the Supreme Court Justices in attendance, who exactly is leading our country? His handlers will claim, “COVID concerns.” Okay, then present to the camera in the East Room of the White House. “No” to that idea?

How long can the mainstream media continue to cover for him? How long can they avoid the issue altogether? If he does somehow manage to deliver the SOTU, how will the libstream media machine spew their propaganda when everyone, from all sides of the political spectrum, witnesses the undeniable elder abuse?

In other countries, Australia for one, Biden is not getting a free pass. “It’s clear to me at the least that U.S. President Joe Biden is struggling with dementia and is clearly not up to the task he’s been sworn in to do,” said Sky News host Cory Bernardi when asked to give his views of Biden’s performance in the early weeks of his administration.

Bernardi added, quite simply, “Never before has the leader of the Free World been so cognitively compromised.” What recognizable journalist or reporter among the mainstream media in the U.S. has said the same? Where are you Lester Holt, David Muir, Norah O’Donnell, Jake Tapper, Anderson Cooper, Brooke Baldwin, Wolf Blitzer, Jim Acosta, Joy Reid, Rachel Maddow, ad infinitum? “Cat got your tongue?”

Is observation of the obvious too much for you to acknowledge?

No Surprise

The Democrats knew well in advance that Biden would not be able to continue for very long at the level required for the job. That never mattered to them. Joe Biden was nothing more than a vehicle for their side to gain power.

Whether or not you object to the way in which the election occurred, with the gross irregularities, the terrible reality is that a mentally unfit man and his unworthy vice president are in office, and other people are calling the shots, be they Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, Valerie Jarrett, John Brennan, George Soros, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, or whomever.

The 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution clarifies presidential succession if the president dies, resigns, or is removed from office. It establishes how and when the vice president becomes president. However, the vile Nancy Pelosi, and other plotters on the Left, might not need the 25th Amendment to remove Biden.

It’s likely that he, or his wife, or his greedy family, will do so themselves when it is apparent that his continuing on will be an embarrassment to everyone, most of all themselves.

Waiting in the Wings

Some people speculate that Nancy Pelosi’s true intent in relation to the 25th Amendment is to remove Kamala Harris, before she names a VP, should she ascend to the presidency. There’s plenty in Harris’ past to disqualify her.

Once both Biden and Harris are removed from office, guess who gets to be the president of the United States of America? That’s right: The person who so eagerly tore up President Trump’s brilliant State of the Union address in February of 2020, none other than the vindictive, power-crazed, authoritarian wannabe, Nancy Pelosi.
