Hunter Biden ‘nets $2m advance’ for his upcoming memoir Beautiful Things about his battle with drugs – despite Joe saying his family would NOT cash in on presidency
Drugs, prostitutes, shady dealings, a quickie marriage — President Joe Biden’s son Hunter is too easily depicted as sleaze in human form.
Who else would have left his wife and jumped into bed with his recently departed brother’s widow only for her to end the affair when he got a stripper pregnant?
Is it only Hunter who could have received two special waivers to join the military and be commissioned at a special ceremony in the White House, but then blow his chance on his very first day when a blood test came back positive for cocaine?
Who but Hunter who could receive a diamond from a would-be Chinese business partner whose existence would come to light in divorce papers?
Now the president’s son is getting to tell his side of his unsavory life — warts and all — in a book that could embarrass his father even further, less than three months into his term in the Oval Office.
Beautiful Things — the as yet unexplained title of Biden’s tome — promises to center on his well-publicized struggles with substance abuse according to Gallery Books, an imprint of publishers Simon & Schuster.
And get this. The company publishing Hunter Biden’s book is the same one that dropped Josh Hawley’s book.
Simon & Schuster refused to publish Josh Hawley's book but is okay with publishing Hunter Biden's "memoir?"

The Save America Rally
Thousands of patriots arrived in Washington, D.C. to participate in the ‘Save America Rally’ as citizens across the country continued to demand a full investigation into election fraud.
Rally participants called on Congress to decertify fraudulent election results in contested states. Many asserted Joe Biden’s purported victory was illegal and Democrat attempts to impose their far-left rule will fail. President Trump responded to the out-pour of support by assuring demonstrators he recognizes all their sentiments. He said, “Americans have had enough of radical left Democrats trying to steal the election.”1
President Donald Trump spoke to over a million Trump supporters and called on Vice President Mike Pence to send key battleground states’ electoral results back to state legislatures during the Joint Session of Congress on Jan. 6.
“States want to correct their votes, which they now know were based on irregularities and fraud, plus corrupt process never received legislative approval,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “All Mike Pence has to do is send them back to the States, AND WE WIN. Do it Mike, this is a time for extreme courage!”
Hours before that, Trump said that if Pence “comes through,” Trump will win the presidency, adding that he believes Pence “can send it back” to the legislatures.
Even before President Trump had finished his speech with 99% of the Trump supporters listening to his speech until the end, flashbangs were going off at the Capitol where Antifa provocateurs were dressed up as Trump supporters.
Protest at the Capitol Building. The False Flag Operation.
Why is the date stamp on this NPR article hours before the Capitol Building was stormed?
The raid on the Capitol Building, led by over 200 (226 accused by brother of leader) Antifa agent provocateurs dressed as Trump supporters, set the stage to justify the final betrayal of America as Dems and Republicans voted to install Joe Biden as president, even after irrefutable proof of widespread election rigging and fraud across the swing states.
Antifa was brought to the capital in at least four charter buses with a police escort as well as a black (CIA or FBI?) SUV. This was seen firsthand by one Trump supporter who captured it on video:
Four military veterans gave The Gateway Pundit their firsthand account on the protest at the US Capitol. Most importantly they all related that the crowd was completely non-violent and the police instigated the violence against the protesters before they even got on the Capitol grounds.
“We were on the sidewalk first, up against some metal barricades and bleachers, waiting for President Trump to come speak at the Capitol at 1 PM. Ten minutes before, thousands of people were on the street chanting “F*** you Nancy” and “Stop the Steal” on a megaphone and people were getting upset because we had just found out that Vice President Mike Pence had gone back on a previous statement indicating he would question the certification of electors. As the crowd found out that they had been betrayed yet again by the GOP establishment, lied to by someone as cowardly as Mike Pence, people’s anger was visible,” said Charles. “They unrolled a massive banner of vampire Nancy Pelosi and it charged up the crowd.”
“The streets were jam-packed, of everyday people: grandmas, children, families, lawyers, doctors, people from all walks of life. This was an American crowd,” said Bill.
“These families moved to the interior barricades, it wasn’t aggressive, just peaceful. This is where the cops came in and used overwhelming force. We were on the line with the barricade and out come the metal batons and they started hitting Trump protesters as hard as they possibly could. They were hitting old men and old women, people who for some reason brought their families to the event. I couldn’t believe that there were young kids walking in this crowd, but the police were targeting the kids and hitting them with a baton across the head. It was vicious.” according to Charles.
“They were regular police at this point,” said Bill.
This action by police brought the crowd to a fever pitch, where they were demanding that they be treated respectfully, but instead, the police began either pepper spraying or tear-gassing the crowd. They then fought their way through four layers of barricades.
As they were storming the Capitol, “There was one guy who climbed up a tower and could oversee the entire battle, he knew exactly what to say, and he was steering people into the Capitol. It was straight out of the movie ‘Enemy at the Gates’ when the Soviet Commissars were shouting at people to move ahead. He was super old, this guy was clearly a combat vet. I can still hear him, ‘if you don’t move forward, Biden moves in!’ – This guy was a real pro, and was shouting at people that “every step forward” and to “close the gaps” and that turning back was turning our backs on Trump. He said if we didn’t move forward, that Pence was going to give us Biden Communism. He was 50 feet in the air and commanding the whole scene. He was telling people to pass bottled water ahead and other resources.” said Charles.
I saw one older woman bleeding profusely, it looked like her eye came out of the socket.
“We could tell that the 200 riot police were being very careful to stay behind the barricades, so we thought that denying that to them would cause them to be less vicious. There were metal connectors that we grabbed and then threw back at them like javelins. That then caused the barricades to come loose and by then, people were so angry that they started beating up the cops for attacking the kids and grandmothers. There was one very obese cop in particular, he was shooting people on purpose in the eyes with pellet pepper packs that was causing horrible injuries. I saw one older woman bleeding profusely, it looked like her eye came out of the socket. We were coming for that asshole when we tore down the barricades, but later when they saw that it turned into a fair fight, they fled,” said Bill.
The Left is using the “storming” false flag event to whitewash all evidence of election fraud. Somehow, since people pretending to be MAGA supporters stormed the building, now the massive evidence of Biden’s overwhelming fraud and cheating no longer matters. The Left is once again pretending to occupy the moral high ground, even as they operate as criminals and scumbags.
Many of the frontline violent protestors were Antifa or Skinheads dressed as Trump supporters, but there were hundreds of pissed off Americans expressing their disgust with paid off politicians selling out their country to communism and being treated like criminals (battoned, pepper-sprayed, shoved, mocked, etc.) while peaceably protesting. There were 2 segments that got into the Capitol: (1) a group that were let in by the police and (2) another segment led by Antifa masquerading as Trump supporters that violently broke in along with some provoked Trump supporters.
… that this was anything other than a setup to destroy and discredit the Trump movement. It fits with the information and psychological warfare operations which have been conducted against Donald Trump and the American people since Trump declared his candidacy.
Others point out that this was the 3rd time Trump supporters have gathered in Washington DC since the November election with no violence until today. Also, why was Antifa not attacking Trump supporters like they always do? Is it because they infiltrated the event? Big Media and Big Tech shamed Trump supporters that night and continued to disperse the propaganda. They wanted to shame Trump supporters for speaking out about the horribly corrupt stolen election!
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) gave a great speech on the electoral fraud and also suggests Antifa could have been responsible for the events on Capitol Hill. While debating election certification Wednesday, he highlighted President Trump’s explicit calls for his supporters to take part in peaceful demonstrations in Washington, D.C.
When Black Lives Matter and Antifa ravaged some of our major cities over the majority of 2020, these clowns did not denounce the rioting, looting and violence. They lied and called it peaceful protests. But the Silent Majority saw with their own eyes the desecration of statues, the assaults on law abiding citizens, the destruction of small businesses.
When disgruntled Democrats called for violence and uprisings against Trump and Hollywood elite insisted, “Trump is not our President”, the media did not denounce them as “insurrectionists.” When Madonna called for blowing up the White House the only outrage came from Trump supporters. The rest of the establishment yawned and celebrated. When Kathy Griffin, a low rent, untalented comedian, decapitated a model of Donald Trump, the media again shrugged this off as nothing of import.
Videos taken of Trump supporters gathered at the West Front of the Capitol during Wednesday’s protest show that they stopped a person whom they believed to be an Antifa thug who was trying to break windows in the Capitol. In one of the videos, Trump supporters can be heard calling out, “Don’t break the window!” “No Antifa! No Antifa!” as several Trump supporters intervened and stopped the attack by someone dressed and acting like Antifa but with a Trump sticker on the back of their helmet.
The Washington Times reported that XRVision had reported that they confirmed Antifa was in the Capitol, however, XRVision would later deny that and deny that they ever spoke with a military officer and ever confirmed individuals in the Capitol were Antifa members.
XRVision provided to The Gateway Pundit information that two members in the Capitol, who appear to be alluded to in the above Times report as Antifa members, are not Antifa but are rather tied to the Skinheads and the National Socialist Movement.
This begs many questions. How did these people get in the Capitol Building? Why were they there? Were they paid for being there? Were they there to tie the Trump Administration to the Skinheads? Why did they take their picture when in the Capitol? Another individual in the pictures is an Arizona actor and singer. He has been seen at BLM events carrying a QAnon poster.
So who is this source alluded to by the Washington Times that accused ‘facial recognition’ company XRVision of identifying Antifa in the Capitol? And how come they never published the alleged images given to them by the “retired military officer”? The left is going after anyone and any entity that is effective in pointing out their lies. This is why they go after us and XRVision.
The night of January 6th, CNN interviewed John Sullivan, a noted leftist BLM leader from Utah who stormed the US Capitol with other provocateurs and Trump supporters and whom CNN and NBCpaid $35,000 for his footage inside the US Capitol worth only $300-1000 according to another professional videographer, after the shooting death of Ashli Babbit by Capitol Hill police. In August John Sullivan threatened to rip President Trump from the White House during violence in Washington DC. Sullivan was flown to DC for the protests. Journalist Tayler Hansen recognized Sullivan and other leftists at the Trump rally and has several videos on his Twitter feed HERE
John Sullivan tweeted about BLM buses in DC during the “Stop the Steal” rally. Sullivan organized a BLM-Antifa event at the Washington Memorial on Wednesday, January 6th.
CNN interviewed this criminal about the video but seemed to "forget" to ask him why he was there? And why he was arrested for violence against conservatives and starting riots in Utah!
While the FBI and the mainstream media insist there is no evidence Antifa or BLM played any role in the deadly mob that stormed the Capitol, Sullivan admits in the footage that he strategically wore a Trump hat and carried a ‘big camera’ at the rally to guise himself as a journalist and mislead law enforcement and the media about his true motives.
“It’s all fake,” he explains. “I learned that sh!# already – I am going to wear a Trump hat. I am going to wear a Trump hat. I bought one today,” he says. “I was wearing a Trump hat at the last Trump rally, at that Trump rally during the daytime because I was like, ‘nah, that sh!# ain’t happening, bro.
The Gateway Pundit obtainedarchived tweets from Mike Dunn, leader of “Boogaloo Bois,” an anti-government, anti-Trump group whose adherents call for a revolution toppling the federal government. As rioters roamed the U.S. Capitol, Dunn boasted on Twitter about Boogaloo “fireteams” being employed inside the Capitol building. to taunt “tyrants” like Trump. Dunn admits “three or four groups of loyalists under his command helped storm the Capitol” and “embraced the moment to strike against the government.” Asked whether Boogaloos had planned to attack the Capitol on Jan. 6, he told the publication, “Just know there is more to come.”
A study by CNN and reported by Breitbart found that several of those protesters and activists arrested at the January 6th US Capitol protest and riot were non-voters and registered Democrats.
The Most Violent Act of the Protest… or was it staged?
A Capitol police officer shot 14 year Air Force Veteran Ashli Babbitt through a glass window of a barricaded door in cold blood, or did he? THIS VIDEO may suggest that the shooting was a staged false flag event with crisis actors to blame Q supporters and Trump supporters. Babbitt was a San Diego, California native who served four tours with the Air Force and was a high-level security officer throughout her service. Ashley’s husband said, “She was a strong supporter of President Trump and was a great patriot to all who knew her.”
According to the New York Post, on the night before her death Babbitt tweeted, “Nothing will stop us….they can try and try and try but the storm is here and it is descending upon DC in less than 24 hours….dark to light!”
Japanese investigator Misako Ganaha explained in a video interview with Epoch Times reporter Joshua Philipp on his “Crossroads” program that she analyzed two lengthy videos, affording two different angles of the incident near the House chamber, and concluded that Antifa provoke the shooting of Ashli Babbit at the Capitol.
Capitil Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick died the day after protesters stormed the US Capitol. Fake news claimed he was hit over the head with a fire extinguisher, but authorities believe his death was driven by a medical condition he had and that the fire extinguisher story is made up.
The Democrats, their dishonest Big Media and Big Tech, and their ‘fact checkers’ claim the intrusion into the Capitol on January 6th was an ‘armed insurrection.’ However, top FBI counterterrorism official Jill Sanborn testified on March 3rd 2020 that there were no guns confiscated at the Capitol on January 6th and that the only shots fired was the one that killed Ashli Babbitt.
The Communist Chinese government seized on the alleged Trump mob riots in the U.S. Capitol to justify its brutal crackdown on protesters in Hong Kong. CCP government mouthpiece the Global Times posted images of chaos from both riots to highlight western media double standards in offering tacit support for the unrest in Hong Kong while denouncing what happened in Capitol Hill as an “insurrection.”2
The Gateway Pundit concluded that [begin excerpt] the so-called “attack” on the U.S. Capitol was a set up, with several thousand Trump supporters acting as unwitting bit players in an event incited by Antifa and BLM agitators disguised as Trump supporters. The FBI knew something was going to happen at the Capitol but did nothing to prevent nor deter it. The FBI and the U.S. Capitol Police just stepped back and let swarms of Trump supporters into the Capitol.
It is essential to be very clear about what happened and what did not happen. This was not a “riot” if riot means people hurling rocks and bottles or igniting Molotov cocktails and torching all structures in their reach. The vast majority of those who entered the Capitol behaved more as tourists than anarchists. There was no wanton, massive destruction of art work, furniture or signs inside the building. Walls were not covered with graffiti or feces.
Most importantly, the Trump supporters did not kill a single person. Media and democrat impeachment lawyer lies have gaslighted much of the public to believe that at least seven people died and that the Trump folks killed them all, including the Capitol policeman. All a lie. Glenn Greenwald did a masterful job in deconstructing this monstrous propaganda.
What should really scare the hell out of you and out of every honest civil libertarian are the subsequent actions of America’s GESTAPO aka the FBI. (And yes, they have become an American version of the Gestapo–carrying out partisan political attacks and ignoring the Constitution.) Ken Klippenstein, writing at the Intercept, is the only one so far to report this.
The vast majority of Trump voters and supporters are law abiding, peaceful folks. The rabid, radical left now in charge of the Democrats mistakes this silence for stupidity and weakness. But we are not going to acquiesce to such bullying and abuse. Most importantly, we are not going to accept the tsunami of lies sweeping over the airwaves and the internet.
We know what a real insurrection looks like. We remember the burned out stores and restaurants in Minneapolis, Atlanta, New York, Oakland, Seattle, Portland and Saint Louis. We remember the White House being besieged by Antifa and BLM hordes hurling bricks and frozen water bottles. We remember that more than a hundred police and Secret Service were wounded in these frays. We remember the monsters who set fire to St. John’s Church, which sits across Lafayette Park from the White House. We saw actual insurrection and we also saw the Democrats and the media insist that this was mere peaceful protesting.
This is the line in the sand separating decent Americans from depraved animals keen on destroying this Republic. The Trump supporters who gathered in Washington on January 6 are not racists nor insurrectionists. They are patriots who love this nation and what it is supposed to stand for. But they also are men and women who witnessed a fraudulent Presidential election and the subsequent abdication of the very institutions of law enforcement and justice that were supposed to uphold the rule of law.
We will fight to preserve equitable, fair justice. We will fight to preserve the right of each and every person to speak his or her mind. And this fight starts with rejecting the vile whopper that Trump and his supporters are guilty of insurrection. No. We are guilty of loving America. [End TGP Excerpt] Amen brother! Great article by patriot Larry Johnson.
The Betrayal by Pence, Congress
Vice President Mike Pence rebuffed President Trump and refused to reject Joe Biden’s electoral college votes in contested states.
“It is my considered judgement that my oath to support and defend the Constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not,” Pence said.
As president of the Senate, Pence is presiding over the session. The purpose of the session is to count electoral votes. Under the Electoral College system, voters choose electors. Those electors then vote, almost always for the candidate that received the most ballots in their state. Congress meets in the January after an election to tally the votes.
Trump and some Republicans argue that Pence has the “exclusive authority” to reject electoral votes for Biden and choose the ones for Trump. A lawsuit asking a court to support that view was rejected by a district judge. An appeal was dismissed, though the plaintiffs earlier Wednesday asked the Supreme Court to intervene.1
President Trump blasted Pence for lacking courage.
“Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify. USA demands the truth!” Trump said.
Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) and several other Republican senators reversed course in their plans to object to Electoral College votes on Jan. 6 following the civil unrest that broke out on U.S. Capitol grounds. Loeffler, speaking from the Senate floor, said the unrest and acts of violence that occurred earlier in the day had forced her to reconsider challenging the electoral votes in several disputed states.
“I cannot now in good conscience object to the certification of these electors,” she said in a brief speech. “The violence, the lawlessness, and siege of the halls of Congress arec abhorrent and stand as a direct attack on what my objection was intended to protect, the sanctity of the American democratic process.”s
Loeffler, who lost her Senate runoff race, was joined by other lawmakers in dropping their plans to object to the disputed votes. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) said in a statement that she has “decided I will vote to uphold the Electoral College result” a day after she said would support the efforts to challenge the votes.
Similarly, Sens. Steve Daines (R-Mont.) and James Lankford (R-Okla.) also released a joint statement calling on Congress to “come together and vote to certify the election results.” Daines had previously signed onto a letter committing to challenge disputed votes.
The media reported that the officer died from injuries suffered after being hit with a fire extinguisher during the protest on January 6. They lied. The officer was hospitalized in critical condition from a “medical emergency.” It was not confirmed that he was struck with a fire extinguisher, or if the medical emergency was even related to the protest. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund announced his resignation effective January 16th, the day after the protest.
Investigative reporter John Solomon said the DC police rejected his FOIA request for records pertaining to their investigation of the siege of the U.S. Capitol, claiming the release of the records would be ‘personally embarrassing’ and privacy invading to release the documents. John Solomon also said that inside sources leaked maps, internal documents helping to assist rioters enter and navigate the Capitol building.
Tucker Carlson himself, his show and even Fox News channel were targeted by prominent Democrats in a campaign led by CNN – the channel’s main competitor – to force Fox News off the air. CNN claimed that “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and other shows on the Fox News channel were “directly responsible for the violence at the US Capitol this week,” according to Fox News.
Cabinet officials were discussing removing Trump by the 25th Amendment following the media hysteria overhyping the storming of the US Capitol Building after minimizing the Antifa and BLM riots that burned and destroyed dozens of buildings and statues throughout 2020.
“What happened at the U.S. Capitol yesterday was an insurrection against the United States, incited by the president,” Schumer, D-N.Y., said in a statement Thursday morning. “This president should not hold office one day longer.” “The quickest and most effective way — it can be done today — to remove this president from office would be for the vice president to immediately invoke the 25th Amendment,” Schumer said. “If the vice president and the Cabinet refuse to stand up, Congress should reconvene to impeach the president.“
Schumer compared the event where four Trump supporters died, one murdered and the other three alleged to have died from natural causes, to Pearl Harbor, claiming Congress as the victims:
Sen. Schumer compares today's events to Pearl Harbor:
"Franklin Roosevelt set a day aside that will live in infamy. Unfortunately, we can now add January 6, 2021 to that very short list of dates in American history that will live forever in infamy." pic.twitter.com/mVMrVbuxQ8
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi joined presumptive Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to call on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office, after the president’s incitement of a crowd of supporters that violently stormed the U.S. Capitol.
In the afternoon, Pelosi called Trump a “dangerous man who should not continue in office. “This is urgent. This is [an] emergency of the highest magnitude,” she told reporters at her weekly press conference.
“I join the Senate Democratic leader in calling on the vice president to remove this president by immediately invoking the 25th amendment. If the vice president and Cabinet do not act, the Congress may be prepared to move forward with impeachment. That is the overwhelming sentiment of my caucus, and the American people, by the way.“
Pelosi said if Pence does not act, then the House would consider impeachment to remove him from office. Such a move would be largely symbolic, since there would be little time for a Senate trial before Trump’s term ends in 13 days. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) became the first Republican in Congress to call for Trump’s removal by the 25th Amendment. Kinzinger released a video Thursday morning:
It’s with a heavy heart I am calling for the sake of our Democracy that the 25th Amendment be invoked. My statement: pic.twitter.com/yVyQrYcjuD
Speaking from the White House, retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney said that Pelosi’s demands to invoke the 25th Amendment and impeach President Trump were linked to the fact that an Army Special Forces team managed to capture House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s laptop amid the chaos of the Capitol riots.
** Deny national guard support on January 4th
** What conversations did she or her staff give Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving specifit to January 6th?
** What response did you give security officials on January 6th when National Guard support was initially requested?
** Why are House Officers refusing to turn over documents relevant to that day?
The Republican lawmakers claim the hour-long delay in National Guard approval was because the sergeant-at-arms “had to run the request up the chain of command,” including Pelosi. Republicans also note in their letter that Pelosi refused National Guard protection because the “optics” would be bad. Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser also refused National Guard protection before January 6th.2
Joe Biden fanned the flames following the chaos at the Capitol and labeled Trump supporters “domestic terrorists.”
Biden: "What we witnessed yesterday was not dissent. It was not disorder. It was not protest. It was chaos. They weren't protesters. Don't dare call them protesters. They were a riotous mob. Insurrectionists. Domestic terrorists. It's that basic, it's that simple." pic.twitter.com/QhFCba3D3B
“To those who wreaked havoc in our capitol today, you did not win. Violence never wins,” Pence said. “Freedom wins, and this is still the people’s house.”
“Today was a dark day in the history of the United States Capitol, but thanks to the swift efforts of US Capitol Police, federal, state, and local law enforcement, the violence was quelled,” Pence said.
Traitor Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) released a statement telling President Donald Trump to accept the election results and “quit misleading the American people.”
That same media narrative demanded that we forget the radical Left’s storming of the Capitol Buildingduring Kavanaugh’s SCOTUS hearing praised by the media, of course. Forget about the May 31st, 2020 BLM Seige on the White House where over 60 secret service agents were injured while not firing a shot at the BLM rioters. You’re also not supposed to remember the many months of extreme violence and domestic terrorism of the radical Left as they burned cities, assaulted federal officers and set fire to police cars and government buildings throughout much of 2020.
Congresswoman Cori Bush calls for all members of Congress who objected to the Biden confirmation to be expelled from Congress. The Walll Street Journal Called on the President to resign.
Daily Mail reported a list from the FBI just a day later of their most wanted who waltzed into the Capitol Building on January 6th:
Included on the list were patriots such as Simone Gold who peacefully entered the Capitol Building and days later she was given the Roger Stone Swat Team treatment when here home was raided, she was shackled and drug out of it, while likely FBI stooges such as the DNC-RNC pipe bombers (planted but did not explode) that same day are still at large. Despite media reports saying the bomb squad was not called to the RNC building in Washington, D.C. until “around 12:45 p.m.” on Wednesday, January 6, multiple D.C. police bomb squad vehicles and personnel were seen outside the building at 9:54 a.m., multiple sources confirm.
In addition to the list above, the Justice Department has not discarded President Trump’s role in events at the Capitol:
Federal prosecutors have announced President Trump could potentially face charges over his role in inciting the violent siege of the US Capitol after he urged his supporters to ‘march’ on Congress to protest the results of the presidential election.
‘We are looking at all actors here. Not only the people who went into the building,’ Sherwin said during a press conference on the mayhem.
Space Force was upgraded to full intelligence agency status. This move would allow full authorization of the Global Broadcast Satelite by “breaking down barriers to information sharing and ensure that Space Force leaders have access to all intelligence that it would need”. According to Fox News, the White House pushed to make this change in classification ASAP. This may be in preparation for a worldwide emergency broadcast using his executive powers to do so in leiu of the massive deep state censorship and dispersion of propaganda.
The Senate voted to override President Donald Trump’s veto of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for 2021.
The upper house on Friday afternoon passed the bill without the president’s signature with an 80–13 vote—the first time a Trump veto has been overridden. The debate over the bill was ended earlier in the day with the same result.
Thirteen senators voted to sustain Trump’s veto of the bill, including Republicans Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), Mike Braun (R-Ind.), Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), and John Kennedy (R-La.).
Across the aisle, supporters were Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Ed Markey (D-Mass.), Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.).
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) indicated early in the week that his chamber would vote to override Trump’s veto. He urged the Senate Republicans to pass the bill breaking away from the president.
Trump vetoed the NDAA on Dec. 23 for a number of reasons, including wasteful spending overseas and because the bill failed to remove Section 230—the liability shield that protects social media companies.
He said he’s unhappy with the bill also because it requires the renaming of historic military installations, restricts the president’s ability to use military construction funds for national emergency use, and contradicts his efforts to bring the U.S. troops back from overseas.
“For all of these reasons, I cannot support this bill,” Trump said in a statement on Dec. 23.
The president emphasized that despite his veto, he’s a strong supporter of the military.
“No one has worked harder, or approved more money for the military, than I have—over $2 trillion,” he wrote in his statement. “During my 4 years, with the support of many others, we have almost entirely rebuilt the United States military, which was totally depleted when I took office.”
“My Administration has taken strong actions to help keep our Nation safe and support our service members,” he added.
The GOP-controlled Senate stabbed their voters in the back on Wednesday by passing Utah Senator Mike Lee’s green card giveaway to reward Big Tech by allowing them to import hundreds of thousands of Indian workers to take jobs from struggling American tech workers.
The bill failed earlier this year but Lee brought it back and the GOP-controlled Senate just passed it with unanimous consent — right before the election in Georgia which will determine whether the GOP holds on to the Senate.
America First patriots were urging folks to call their senators on Wednesday and demand they object to the bill.
It would only have taken one senator to force a debate or force a vote on the bill.
Call Georgia's two Senators and tell them if they want your support they need to block Mike Lee's S 386. The bill would end country caps on immigration. Terrible bill, we need one Republican to block it.
As Ryan Girdusky noted, not even Republican Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri — who has made a name for himself by bashing Big Tech — bothered to muster up an objection.
.@HawleyMO built his entire reputation as the Republican who wants to take on big tech. He couldn't even must up an objection against a bill that gives them a mass amount of cheap labor. https://t.co/nzhHwXtIir
The same goes for Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, both of whom are up for reelection in Georgia.
Talk about a kamikaze move! Mike Lee and his Senate Republican enablers would rather ram through this betrayal of American tech workers and students, with 2 GA seats in play, than do a visa giveaway the normal way next Congress (potentially risking their own seats in 2022). https://t.co/834JmYwbi6
The GOP are also currently teaming up with Democrats to shove through a $740 billion defense authorization bill that will erase our history by renaming military bases named after Confederate generals. President Trump demanded the bill include a measure to change Section 230 but his objections were ignored.
Section 230, which is a liability shielding gift from the U.S. to “Big Tech” (the only companies in America that have it – corporate welfare!), is a serious threat to our National Security & Election Integrity. Our Country can never be safe & secure if we allow it to stand…..

Fox News host Tucker Carlson unveiled a report showing that several well-known conservative organizations, all funded by the Koch brothers, are actively helping so-called “Big Tech” suppress conservative speech on the internet.
The Friday night “Tucker Carlson Tonight” monologue began with a review of various ways “Google, Facebook, and Twitter work in secret to impose a left-wing political agenda on this country.” Although polls show Republican voters “starting to figure this out” and wanting the Trump administration to take action, Carlson noted, “no one in Washington is doing anything.”
“But it doesn’t have to be that way,” said the Fox News host. “Tech companies have thrived under a special immunity they received from Congress that protects them from lawsuits over what people say on their platforms. It’s an exemption that Fox News, for example, does not have. So why does Google have it?”
Carlson mentioned Republican Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley as a rare example of a high ranking politician trying to fix the problem by proposing “stripping that immunity from tech companies, and treating them like everyone else, unless they can maintain neutral platforms for all views.”
Other ideas, like “breaking up major tech companies,” have not happened.
“Why all the inaction?” Carlson asked. “A big part of the problem is that conservative nonprofits in Washington, the ones that are supposed to be looking out for you, aren’t actually looking out for you. They’re looking out for Big Tech.”
The Fox News host brought up a recently obtained report from the Campaign for Accountability showing how “conservative organizations in DC have colluded with Big Tech to shield left-wing monopolies from any oversight at all.”
News items unveiled by the report include Americans for Prosperity supporting Facebook and Google with an ad campaign targeting politicians of both parties in several states who are leading antitrust investigations.
“In all, the Koch network quietly spent at least $10 million defending Silicon Valley companies that work to silence conservatives,” Carlson said. “As one former Koch employee recently told this show, quote, ‘I know for a fact they take money from social media companies to do their bidding.’”
“What does all this money buy?” he asked. “Well in September of 2018, the Competitive Enterprise Institute and three other groups funded by Google and the Kochs sent a joint letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions expressing grave concerns over DoJ’s plans to look into whether search engines and social media were hurting competition and stifling speech. Big Tech companies silence conservatives. Conservative nonprofits try to prevent the government from doing anything about it. Makes sense.”
Calling the Heritage Foundation the “biggest and best-funded think tank in Washington,” Carlson insisted that it now “no longer represents the interest of conservatives, at least on the question of tech.” The Fox News host cited a paper that defends Silicon Valley’s special privileges on the basis of the contention that conservatives can simply “start their own Google” if they don’t like it.
“The paper could have been written by tech lobbyists, and in fact may have been,” said Carlson. “A trade association that represents Silicon Valley called the liability exemption Google enjoys, quote, ‘the most important law in tech.’ Heritage’s paper repeats that line, verbatim, word for word, along with many others.”
The Fox News host concluded by calling the Heritage Foundation’s actions “embarrassing,” although they aren’t “embarrassed” and neither are any of the “so-called ‘conservative’ nonprofits in Washington.”
“They make deals with people who hate you, secretly sell out your interests, then beg you to tithe like it’s the medieval church,” he said. “That’s the system we’ve had for decades. Maybe that’s why, no matter how much money you send, nothing gets more conservative. You wonder how much longer this can continue.”
