Leftist ‘Unity’ Results in Literary Agent Being Fired for Merely Having Parler and Gab Accounts

The Left’s cancel culture has now expanded to point that you do not even have to be accused of ‘hate speech’ to have your life destroyed. Now just refusing to be confined to the Left’s Orwellian echo chambers will get you fired from your job.

Newsweek reported this week that a literary agency based in New York City fired one of its employees after her use of free-speech social media sites Parler and Gab was discovered. The employee was not fired for anything she said, but just for her mere presence on Parler and Gab.

In a statement released on Twitter, the literary agency actually had the audacity to claim that its repressive action was in the cause of unity, equality, and social justice:

The Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency was distressed to discover this morning, January 25th, that one of our agents has been using the social media platforms Gab and Parler. We do not condone this activity, and we apologize to anyone who has been affected or offended by this. The Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency has in the past and will continue to ensure a voice of unity, equality, and one that is on the side of social justice.

This is just a flavor of the ‘unity’ that we can expect in Uncle Joe’s America. What will be the next justification that the Maoist Red Guards on the Left will use threaten someone’s employment in the name of ‘unity’? Being spotted wearing a MAGA hat? Attending a Republican political rally? Attending Church?

I’m old enough to remember when the Left claimed to be all about ‘tolerance.’ But that was always a facade, only for when they were the ones on the outside. Now that they control all of the commanding heights of political and economic power in this country they can afford to let the mask fall and expose to us that the Left in America, just as it is elsewhere, is not based on persuasion but on repression.

Ex-FBI Lawyer Who Altered Russia Hoax Evidence Given Slap on the Wrist by Obama-appointed Judge

In today’s sentencing hearing, US District Judge James Boasberg, an Obama appointee, sentenced former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith to 12 months probation and 400 hours of community service for altering an email during the Russia investigation that was used to justify the surveillance of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

Last summer Clinesmith pleaded guilty to falsifying an email from the CIA to show that Page was “not a source” for the CIA, even though the original message from the CIA said that he was a source. The CIA had earlier told investigators in a memo that Page was an “operational contact” for the agency from 2008 to 2013 and provided information about his contacts with Russian intelligence officers.

Federal prosecutor John Durham, who was appointed by former Attorney General William Barr to review the origins of the FBI’s Russia investigation, had recommended a sentence of three to six months imprisonment to “send a message that people like the defendant—an attorney in a position of trust who others relied upon—will face serious consequences if they commit crimes that result in material misstatements or omissions to a court.”

By giving Clinesmith such a lenient sentence, Boasberg sent a message that he does not see falsifying evidence given to the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) Court as a serious offense.

Since Boasberg also serves as the Presiding Judge of the FISA Court, he effectively gave deep state actors in the FBI and DOJ a green light to continue their abuse of this secretive tribunal. As a result, we can expect the Biden regime to double down on using our intelligence and law enforcement agencies to target its political opponents.

Instead of holding Clinesmith to account for the fraud that he perpetuated against the FISA Court, Boasberg displayed sympathy for Clinesmith, noting all the bad outcomes Clinesmith has endured as consequences of the actions he knowingly took.

“[He] lost his job, and his government service is what has given his life much of its meaning,” Boasberg said Friday. “He was also earning $150,000 a year and who knows where the earnings go now. He may be disbarred or suspended from the practice of law, you may never be able to work in the national security field again. These are substantial penalties.”

Boasberg added: “What is more, he went from being an obscure career government lawyer to standing in the eye of a media hurricane. He has been threatened, vilified and abused on a nationwide scale.”

At the sentencing hearing Clinesmith also continued to show no remorse for either the damage that he did to either Page specifically or to the United States in general. Instead, he portrayed himself as the victim:

Altering the email has forever changed the course of my life. I have lost the means to provide for my growing family…lost the ability to give back to my nation… the shame and remorse will stay with me forever.

One can not help but notice the disparity between the harsh treatment that federal prosecutors and judges have given to Trump associates caught up in the Russia Hoax, for example General Flynn, and the lenient or no consequences meted out to those who knowingly participated in this hoax.

Sen. Schumer Calls on Biden to Assume Dictatorial Powers

The Democrat’s program to destroy our constitutional republic and replace it with a presidential dictatorship continues at a dizzying pace. During an interview aired on Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that “it might be a good idea for President Biden to call a climate emergency.” Because this would allow him to “do many, many things” without legislation.

Here we have member of the US Senate, and not just any member but the Senate Majority Leader, asking the president to bypass Congress and to create new laws via executive action. Under the guise of a ‘climate emergency,’ Biden could use dictatorial powers to completely rearrange the economy of this country without any input from either Congress or the American people.

This would be in addition to the more than 30 executive orders, an order of magnitude greater than any previous president, that Biden has already issued in the first days in office. These executive orders go well beyond just regulating operations of executive departments but instead are setting public policy that should be determined by Congress.

Just a reminder, here is what the Constitution says about how this country’s laws are to be made:

All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

Article I, Section 1, U.S. Constitution

Biden Moves to Pack the Supreme Court

During the 2020 presidential election campaign Joe Biden said that he was “not a fan” of packing the Supreme Court. In 2019 he said that he was opposed to the idea. That was then, this is now. Now that he has been safely installed as president, Biden is abandoning his past public statements and moving forward to take control of the only institution left to check to the Democrat’s consolidation of power.

Politico reported yesterday that the Biden administration is creating a ‘bipartisan’ commission to ‘study’ reforms to the Supreme Court and the federal judiciary. The commission will be housed under the purview of the White House Counsel’s office and filled out with the behind-the-scenes help of the Biden campaign’s lawyer Bob Bauer, who will co-chair the commission.

We all know where there is going. The speed at which this commission is being set up is a sign that it is just a fig leaf to give legitimacy to decision that was already made shortly before the election when Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the Supreme Court. It is mark of the cowardice and duplicity of Joe Biden that he wasn’t honest about this during the campaign.

Biden Regime Equates Political Opposition to Terrorism

The Biden regime is now linking opposition to its dystopian political agenda to terrorism. Yesterday, the Department of Homeland Security issued a National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin warning of a “heightened threat environment across the United States.” What is remarkable about this warning is that DHS also said that department “does not have any information to indicate a specific, credible plot.”

So if DHS does not have any intelligence to support this warning, why did they issue it? According to the bulletin, the department is:

concerned that individuals frustrated with the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances and ideological causes fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize a broad range of ideologically-motivated actors to incite or commit violence.

DHS went on to specify anger over COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 election results, and opposition to [illegal] immigration as drivers to the increased potential of violence. In other words, the Biden regime is now saying that political views of Trump voters have turned them into violent extremists.

To give its timing of this ‘warning’ a facade of credibility, the DHS linked this ideological discontent to the the violent riots that have occurred recently. The riots that have occurred in Portland and Seattle in the past week, however, were done by far-left Antifa and BLM extremists, not by Trump supporters. This is classic disinformation were ‘facts’ are twisted to justify state-sponsored propaganda.

Now that DHS has equated Trump supporters to domestic terrorists, we can expect the Biden regime to use it as a justification to suppress its political opponents. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told the press:

The rise of domestic violent extremism is a serious and growing national security threat. The Biden administration will approach this threat with the necessary resources and resolve.

Psaki’s statement follows former CIA Director John Brennan preview last week how the Biden regime will use the threat of domestic terrorism to mobilize the nation’s law enforcement and intelligence agencies to root out its political opponents:

I know looking forward that the members of the Biden team who have been nominated or have been appointed, are now moving in laser-like fashion to try to uncover as much as they can about what looks very similar to insurgency movements that we’ve seen overseas, where they germinate in different parts of a country, and they gain strength, and it brings together an unholy alliance, frequently, of religious extremists, authoritarians, fascists, bigots, racists, nativists, even libertarians. … And so, I really do think that the law enforcement, Homeland Security, intelligence, and even defense officials are doing everything possible to root out what seems to be a very, very serious and insidious threat to our democracy and our republic.

How far will they take this? Former congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) on Sunday warned that Brennan’s definition of domestic terrorism will be stretched to target anyone who opposes the current government:

What characteristics are we looking for as we are building this profile of a potential extremist, what are we talking about? Religious extremists, are we talking about Christians, evangelical Christians, what is a religious extremist? Is it somebody who is pro-life? Where do you take this?

You start looking at obviously, have to be a white person, obviously likely male, libertarians, anyone who loves freedom, liberty, maybe has an American flag outside their house, or people who, you know, attended a Trump rally… A targeting of almost half the country…

Biden Endorses Political Show Trial of Leader of the Political Opposition

Newly installed President Joe Biden came out in favor of conducting a political show trial of former President Trump. In an interview with CNN on Monday, Biden said that the trial of Trump in the US Senate “has to happen.” His remarks came the same night that Trump, now a private citizen, announced the creation of the ‘Office of the Former President.’ Trump will use the Office to continue his push of his pro-American agenda and to fight the fascist and racist policies of the Biden regime.

Donald Trump remains the most formidable opponent to the dystopian agenda being pushed by radicals now in charge of Washington. A hypothetical “Patriot Party” led by former President Donald Trump would win the support of almost a quarter — 23% — of the electorate, bumping the GOP down to third place with just 17%, according to a new Just the News poll with Scott Rasmussen

The timing of Biden’s about face on weighing in on the Senate ‘impeachment’ of Trump is a clear indication that he recognizes the danger that Trump’s continued presence in political arena has on the ability of Left to control the political dialogue in America. Biden is sacrificed any pretense of ‘unity’ to unleash a ‘two minutes hate’ against citizen Trump.

Biden’s about face also exposes how weak he is at resisting the radicals in his own party. According to CNN, Biden’s aides abandoned any idea of slowing or trying to manage the impeachment when they became aware that trying to do so could divide Democrats. If Biden is unable to set the direction of the party on a major issue such as this, is he really the leader of the party?

Trump Opens ‘Office of the Former President’

In the latest sign the former President Trump has no intention of disappearing from the political arena, he released a statement today announcing the creation of the ‘Office of the Former President.’ Instead of retiring to write his memoirs, the statement indicates that President Trump intends to remain fully engaged in the American political process.

The statement reads in part:

The Office will be responsible for managing President Trump’s correspondence, public statements, appearances, and official activities to advance the interests of the United States and to carry on the agenda of the Trump Administration through advocacy, organizing, and public activism.

This move is a direct challenge to Joe Biden’s ability to control the country’s political dialogue. It is also a challenge to the never-Trump Republicans who hope to purge Trump’s influence from the GOP. They know that Trump maintains the loyalty of 75 million American voters and has the potential of overshadowing the weak and feeble-minded Joe Biden. This fear of Trump’s political prowess fully explains the desperate push for an unconstitutional show trial of now citizen Trump in the US Senate.

P.S., I would have preferred the title ‘Office of the Once and Future President.’

Former Democratic Congresswoman Asks Biden: Are We Under Martial Law?

More and more people are questioning why the Biden has decided to keep our nation’s capital under military occupation for another two months. A spokesman for the National Guard said that Federal law enforcement officials, including the Secret Service, had requested that up to 7,000 National Guard Troops remain in D.C. through March 12. It is unclear, however, what is there mission as federal authorities have provided no explanation of any conceivable threat that would require their presence. Just why are they there?

On Sunday, Sen. Tom Cotton (R.-Arkansas) told Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo:

Look, I’m on the Senate intelligence committee. I’ve consulted with Senate leadership. I’m not aware of threat reporting that suggests we need 7,000 troops and razor wire around the Capitol.

On Monday, former congresswomen Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) tweeted out a question to President Biden:

President @JoeBiden, have you declared martial law? Because that is what it’s starting to look and feel like. Let our troops get back home to their families.

Gabbard asks a good question. As there is no reported threat to justify the continued presence of the National Guard, we can only conclude that this is part of the Biden regime’s ‘insurrection theater.’

Our National Guard troops are being used as props in a deliberate disinformation campaign to convince the American public that Trump supporters are domestic terrorists. Biden and the Democrats in Congress will then use this ‘threat’ to justify anti-terrorist legislation that will target a pro-Trump insurgency.

I’ll leave the last word with Rep. Gabbard, who told Fox News that she was very concerned about a new bill proposed by Rep. Adam Schiff seeking to expand the definition of domestic terrorism. She warned:

It’s so dangerous, as you guys have been talking about, this is an issue that all Democrats, Republicans, independents, Libertarians should be extremely concerned about, especially because we don’t have to guess about where this goes or how this ends.

ABC News Falsely Reports on Sen. Rand Paul’s Interview

Proving that that it has absolutely no shame about its misreporting, ABC News headlined its article on Sen. Rand Paul’s appearance on This WeekSen. Rand Paul continues making false claims of 2020 election fraud.” This headline is fake in that Sen. Paul did not make any claim that the fraud was sufficient to change the results of the election, only that the fraud needed to be investigated. Nonetheless, ABC News continues with its baseless claim that there was no fraud in the election.

To support its fake headline, the article’s lead sentence included that factually false claim that Rand didn’t provide any evidence of election fraud.

Days after President Joe Biden took office and the Democrats took control of the U.S. Senate, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., would not unequivocally say Sunday that the 2020 presidential election was not stolen and called for an investigation of fraud, without providing evidence.

As own transcript of Sen. Paul’s interview with host George Stephanopoulos clearly shows, Paul did provide an example of election fraud.

In Wisconsin, tens of thousands of absentee votes had only the name on them and no address. Historically those were thrown out, this time they weren’t. They made special accommodations because they said, oh, it’s a pandemic and people forgot what their address was.

So they changed the law after the fact. That is wrong, that’s unconstitutional. And I plan on spending the next two years going around state to state and fixing these problems and I won’t be cowed by liberals in the media who say, there’s no evidence here and you’re a liar if you talk about election fraud.

Stephanopoulos tried to counter this by changing the goalposts, one of the Left’s favorite tactics, by claiming that there was no ‘widespread evidence’ of election fraud. Sen. Paul correctly pointed out that there has been no investigation of the allegations of fraud.

Both the original Stephanopoulos interview and ABC News’ report clearly part of effort to create a narrative rather than a journalistic exercise to discover the opinion of the show’s guest. ABC News’ framing the interview as Stephanopoulos presenting ‘facts’ against the ‘lies’ of Sen. Paul is a classic example of the journalistic malpractice that Paul pointed out in the interview itself.

The establishment media now becoming more flagrant in its corruption of journalistic standards. It is becoming clearer to the American public that the establishment media sees its role not as informing the public, but instead as forming public opinion. It is this perversion of the role of journalism, not any mean tweets from Trump, that has created so much distrust of the media.

Senator Rand Paul Takes George Stephanopoulos to Task for Forgetting his Role as a Journalist

One of the pernicious problems we have in the establishment media is the plethora of Leftist partisan hacks pretending to be journalists. Their constant slanting of the news to present only one side as being factual and the other side as nothing but lies distorts their role, which should be just to report on the events of the day so that the American public can be fully informed. Instead, these ‘journalists’ believe their role is to referees on what is the truth, or role for which they are woefully equipped.

One of the worst practitioners of this false journalism is George Stephanopoulos, a former press secretary for Bill Clinton who now masquerades as an objective political analyst for ABC News. For the past 15 years, Stephanopoulos has used his lofty perch as the host of ABC’s This Week gab fest to frame the news to fit the political narratives of the Democratic Party and the radical Left. His interviews with Democrat politicians are invariably filled with sympathetic questions while Republican politicians are approached with skepticism and browbeating to pressure them to concede to Democrat premises.

On this Sunday’s broadcast of This Week, Stephanapoulos used his old trick of trying to force his Republicans to accept his framing of the news. He started his interview with Sen. Rand Paul by calling for him to concede that it was a ‘fact’ that the presidential election was not stolen.

Refreshingly, Paul refused to accept Stephanopoulos’ bullying tactics and presented numerous actual facts that showed that there was indeed widespread evidence of fraud in the election that needs to be investigated. The interview became fiery as Stephanopoulos tried to talk over Paul and prevent him from presenting this evidence to the viewers.

Just as important, Paul called out Stephanopoulos for his distortion of his role as a journalist:

That’s the problem with the media today is they say all Republicans are liars, and everything we say is a lie. There are two sides to every story. Interview somebody on the other side, but don’t insert yourself into the story to say we’re all liars, because we do think there’s some fraud and the election needs to be fixed.

There are two sides to every story. George, you’re forgetting who you are. You’re forgetting who you are as a journalist if you think there’s only one side. You’re inserting yourself into the story to say I’m a liar because I want to look at election fraud and I want to look at secretaries of state who illegally changed the voter laws without the permission of their state legislatures. That is incontrovertible, it happened.

And you can’t just sweep it under the rug and say, ‘Oh, nothing to see here, and everybody is a liar and you’re a fool if you bring this up.’ You’re inserting yourself into the story. A journalist would hear both sides and there are two sides of a story.

One of the greatest lessons that President Trump has given to America is the need to counter the false narratives that are constantly being pushed by an establishment media that is allied with the Democrats. If the media ever wants to regain the trust that they lost with American public, they will have to return to reporting both sides of the story instead to just parroting the talking points of one side.
