From open borders and COVID-19 to critical race theory and censorship, Florida and Texas have formed a vanguard against the leftward tilting of America by the Biden administration, the Democrat Congress and Big Tech.
Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida and Gov. Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton of Texas have created a model for other GOP executives to use the states' rights enshrined in the Constitution's 10th Amendment to confront creeping government and monopolization.
After a rash of conservative voices were censored from YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, DeSantis worked with the Florida Legislature to enact a law banning censorship based on political ideology. President Donald Trump, who is banned on some of those platforms, immediately sued them under the state law as a Florida resident.
Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz says the Florida/Trump lawsuits against the social giants will be the most important free speech case of the 21st century - link
"The current situation is absolutely intolerable. You have these giant media tell us what we can see and what we can hear and being exempted by congressional legislation. And then we have them claiming their rights under the First Amendment because they are a private company."

* Samuel Clemens (a.k.a. Mark Twain)
.The Election of 1824 - Four candidates were running for President: Andrew Jackson, John Quincy Adams, William Crawford, and Henry Clay. When the election was over, Andrew Jackson had won 41% of the popular vote, and 99 electoral votes, while Adams had 31% of the popular vote and 84 electoral votes. Despite having won a plurality, Jackson lost the election in the US House of Representatives. Andrew Jackson is the only candidate ever to have won a plurality of the electoral college, but lose the election.
.The Election of 1828 - Andrew Jackson and his supporters did not go quietly into the night. The next four years was a continuous campaign as the nation divided. The congressional elections in 1826 were a harbinger of things to come, as the Jacksonians took 9 seats from the opposition, and control of the House. The campaign of 1828 was an ugly affair, with accusations leveled by both sides. Jackson's wife Rachel was accused of bigamy due to a legal mistake in her divorce, and she died of a heart attack weeks after the election. Andrew Jackson blamed his political opponents for her death. In the end Jackson won the election with 56% of the popular vote, and 178 electoral votes to Adam's 83.
Similarities to the Present -
While it is tempting to consider Trump to be a more divisive political figure than Andrew Jackson, that is debatable. But there are a number of parallels between those elections and today. The divisions within the country from 1824 to 1828 were deep. Jackson was a popular figure, a champion for the working class, and deeply critical of corruption in Washington. He was also denied the Presidency through chicanery. The nation was sharply divided between states with deeply divergent cultural values.
The Price of Fraud -
Election fraud is not new in the United States. Once the electorate believes that their good faith participation in the political process was cast aside, they have historically reacted strongly against those who played those dirty tricks.
Shortly there is going to be convincing proof that the election was stolen from Trump in Arizona and Georgia. Possibly more audits will follow. Everyone knows what an audit is, and the only people who object are those with something to hide. However, remember there is no Constitutional mechanism to overturn a Presidential or Senate election. The Arizona audit won't result in decertification of the election.
- Robert Barnes, Civil Rights Attorney
What the audit does is show everyone in graphic detail that their votes were invalidated through fraud. It has already generated anger and determination in the next elections, and political support for election reform. The reason that Florida had a clean election is because the debacles in 2000 and 2018 forced the state to clean up its act. Election reform is polling with strong majority support nationwide.
Without a doubt, the Democrats will try to retain control through media manipulation, attempts to thwart election legislation, and additional fraud. It is a rational argument that they now wield sufficient power to ensure that future elections will be rigged in Democrat favor, perhaps through a new round of Covid lockdowns, abuse of election systems, or outright cancellation of elections.
But if historical precedent is predictive, then the proof of election fraud will result in voter maturation and a strong backlash against the Democrats in 2022 and 2024.

"I never guessed that the AFT, NEA, SEIU and APWU were knuckle-dragging, MAGA hat-wearing, bitter-clinging, anti-science, Bible-thumping inbred, unwashed, backward red state vaccine refuseniks. That's because these four are at the tippy top of the organized labor big time Democrat pyramid."
Two of the country's largest teachers' unions refuse to mandate [Chinese] COVID-19 vaccinations for their members. The National Education Association (NEA) and American Federation of Teachers (AFT) are pushing against mandatory teacher vaccinations as the 2021-22 school year approaches.
California's largest state worker union has demanded government officials "come to the bargaining table" over Democrat Governor Newsom's mandate requiring all state employees to show proof of full [Chinese] COVID-19 vaccination by August 2. A press release from Service Employees International Union (SEIU) President Richard Brown said Newsom never specified how the vaccine verification mandate would be implemented and went on to question whether the requirement "was a knee-jerk reaction to the rising number of [Chinese] COVID-19 cases."
The American Postal Workers Union (APWU) which represents more than 200,000 United States Postal Service employees and retirees and nearly 2,000 private-sector mail workers, said in a statement; "it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent."
Democrats (and their media apparatchiks) are desperately eager to keep alive the China Virus Fear .. Why?
"They used the cover of a pandemic to help rig the 2020 election. In advance of 2022 they need to create more fear and paranoia to prevent the wave of election integrity laws from nixing the disastrous mail-in balloting, thereby taking away their ill-gotten majorities."

Democrats Harshly Criticize Unvaccinated Americans
Democrats at various levels of government are dismissing the bodily autonomy of Americans who do not wish to get vaccinated. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claims unvaccinated Americans are at fault for the latest COVID fears. Her comments come as COVID-19 deaths remain at their lowest in many months, while at least 11,500 people died from vaccines.
Psaki’s remarks were mild, however, compared to the rhetoric shared by California Gov. Gavin Newsom. During an interview with CNN, the Democrat governor made a remarkably tone-deaf statement comparing Americans who don’t get vaccinated to drunk drivers. MORE
Biden Demonizes Unvaccinated People: "They ‘Are Sowing Enormous Confusion"
Joe Biden: "We have a pandemic because of the unvaccinated and they're sowing enormous confusion. If those other 100 million got vaccinated, we'd be in a very different world. So get vaccinated, if you haven’t, you’re not nearly as smart as I say you are.” MORE
Now consider this:
Over 40,000 Mostly-Unvaccinated Migrants Released By Biden Skip Out On ICE Appointments - MORE
New York Post (link) noted earlier this month - over 80% of migrants are unvaccinated.
About 50,000 migrants who crossed the southern border illegally have now been released in the United States without a court date. Although they are told to report to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement office instead, just 13% have shown up so far. (Axios-link)

It's the hottest part of the summer and apprehensions are skyrocketing! #USBP Apprehensions surpassed the 1-million milestone in June. NOW- this week alone - #RGV has apprehended more than 20K illegally present migrants.
Facebook, Twitter, Google, Microsoft join with the intelligence community to root out "extremist content"
"The issue of domestic extremism, including white supremacy and militia groups, took on renewed urgency following the deadly* Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol."
*(The Jan 6 so called riot was only deadly to unarmed Ashli Babbitt, who was shot at point-blank range by a U.S Capitol Police Officer - link)
And of course, who and what is defined as “extremist content” will be determined by Big Tech insiders themselves.
When the Intelligence Branch within government wants to conduct surveillance and monitor American citizens, they run up against problems due to the Constitution of the United States (4th Amendment). The government cannot conduct electronic searches without a warrant.
They get around this legal limitation by sub-contracting the intelligence gathering, the actual data-mining, to outside parties (contractors) .. private individuals / entities who can search and report back.
What is being admitted in this news release is exactly that pre-existing partnership. Big Tech will flag the content from within their platforms, and now a secondary database filled with the extracted information will be provided openly for the Intelligence Branch to exploit.

The Illinois Republican rat joins Liz Cheney
..“When duty calls, I will always answer.”
(CNN) Rep. Liz Cheney announced that her campaign raised nearly $1.9 million in second quarter 2021, setting what her office described as a quarterly fundraising record.
As noted in an article on campaign contributions (here) the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach President Trump are out-fundraising their grassroots challengers.
Of course they are. The corrupt DC system is designed to protect their own. However, Club DC honchos don't control the voting support of We The People.
These ten House Republican rats voted to impeach President Trump.

"The most corrupt, dishonest and unfair election in the history of our country. The democrats know it, the corrupt media and Big Tech knows it and most importantly, we the American people know it. When they steal it from you and they rig, we have to fight. We have no choice. We have to fight and it starts here in Arizona."
We’re not fighting for servitude, we’re fighting for God and country and freedom. And we are not going to let it be taken away from U.S. by a small group of radical left Marxist maniacs. And to the devoted citizens across our great country, so much greater than our opponents can even imagine .. We have massive majorities and we are much stronger than them."
