From Mar-a-Lago, a different take

Paul Mirengoff

December 21, 2020

Yesterday, John sent us greetings from Mar-a-Lago. He was there to attend Turning Point USA’s Winter Gala and Student Action Summit. His report on the gathering is here.

Today, the Washington Post reported on the same event. Same gathering, very different take.

The Post’s report is under the title, “Young conservatives mingled maskless at Mar-a-Lago and partied with a money cannon.” This summer, BLM activists and others “mingled” maskless, in many cases, during various protests and anti-police riots. I don’t recall the Post tut-tutting about this.

Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) revealed Tuesday on MSNBC that she would like to see President Donald Trump “marched out” of the White House by either the military or Secret Service.:snip:

I just just thinking this would be a good idea for Maxine.

Comedian David Cross “wants blood”, not Biden’s message of healing and unity

Karen Townsend

December 29, 2020

On Saturday Joe Biden tweeted out a call for healing and unity. This wasn’t unusual — there have been other such tweets since the election from his Twitter account. What made this one different, though, was not the tweet itself but a response to it. One B (C?) List actor/comedian is now getting the attention he would not normally be receiving thanks to his response to the president-elect.

David Cross, a name that didn’t ring a bell at the time I read the tweet and his response, is known as a cast member of Arrested Development and his stand-up comedy routines. I know this information thanks to a quick Google search. He, like his peers in LaLa Land, is a big ole NeverTrumper. I have to say, when I first read his response, I laughed. Why? Because it was honest. Biden voters have no desire for peace and love and kumbaya with Trump voters. That goes both ways, of course, so a little bit of honesty was amusing.

According to OAN, major corporations are threatening to pull financial support for any Republican lawmakers who challenged the certification, despite the fact that that is completely their Constitutional duty, if they feel they can’t. The left, who has objected similarly in the past to the certification of the count for Republican presidents, is now calling that action “sedition” or “treason” and some of these corporations are falling for this narrative. According to the report, they were considering doing this even before the riot but that’s given it even more gas.

The report from OAN cited Yale School of Management’s Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, that more than two dozen CEOs are considering the move.

IF CONGRESS WERE GENUINELY INTERESTED IN DEMOCRACY, THEY WOULD WELCOME AN ELECTION COMMISSION

 If Congress Were Genuinely Interested in Democracy, They Would Welcome an Election Commission Comments for If Congress Were Genuinely Interested in Democracy, They Would Welcome an Election Commission Print If Congress Were Genuinely Interested in Democracy, They Would Welcome an Election Commission

Listen to the Audio Mises Wire version of this article.

America stands over two months after Election Day, and yet tension remains in the air over the outcome of the presidential race. Legally, little has changed. The full expectation should be—as it has from the start—that Joe Biden will end up being inaugurated later this month. Appropriately, the event will be very limited for the public.

Even still, in spite of the clear legal advantage Joe Biden has, the behavior of various institutions of power is one of growing unease. This is understandable, Donald Trump remains a populist political figure willing to take down any political leader—regardless of party—who does not remain loyal to his convictions that he was the victim of a fraudulent election. As a result, an impressive number of elected Republican officials have remained in lockstep with the president and his team on challenging the results. We are witnessing an unprecedented breakdown in political norms, and those who have long enjoyed true, unquestioned power are not reacting well to even a modicum of uncertainty.    :snip: https://mises.org/power-market/if-congress-were-genuinely-interested-democracy-they-would-welcome-election-commission

The Coming Purge of All Things and People Trump

:snip:The same treatment given to Hawley will be given to other supporters of Donald Trump, including ordinary people who might have a MAGA bumper sticker on their car or a Donald Trump coffee mug at the office. How many will lose their jobs, be shunned by neighbors, or kicked out of organizations? This is not the way to protect democracy or defend the integrity of elections.

We are about to enter a very dark period in American history. It won’t be Robespierre’s “Reign of Terror.” Guillotines won’t be set up on the mall or gallows erected in Central Park. But there will be terror nonetheless. And it won’t be the Josh Hawley’s or political big shots who will be terrorized. It will be people with everything to lose who will fear being purged.:snip:

The All-Out Assault on Conservative Thought Has Just Begun

After the white nationalist riots in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and others renewed their demands for the suppression of conservative speech on social media. After Trump’s supporters breached the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, Big Tech companies clamped down on President Donald Trump and many of his supporters. Incoming President Joe Biden has said he plans to pass a law against domestic terrorism.

 

While conservatives rightly denounced the violence this week, this response bodes ill for conservative speech not just on social media, but in the public square and even in private organizations.

In the aftermath of the Capitol riots, Twitter suspended President Donald Trump’s account for the first time and Facebook permanently banned the president. After Trump deleted the tweets Twitter had flagged and had his account restored, Twitter proceeded to ban him entirely on Friday, and then it banned the official President of the United States (POTUS) account.

Facebook throttled the great Rush Limbaugh, notifying him that his “Page has reduced distribution and other restrictions because of repeated sharing of false news.” Limbaugh left Twitter in protest after the platform banned Trump. Apple and Google attacked Parler, claiming that the new haven for conservatives had allowed people to plan the violence of the Capitol riots on its platform.:snip:

Marriot, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Commerce Bank suspend donations to lawmakers who objected to certifying Electoral College vote

 

In the wake of the violent attack on Capitol Hill last week, at least three corporations have announced that they would suspend contributions to the campaigns of lawmakers who objected to the certification of Electoral College votes.

At least four protests were scheduled in Washington, D.C., for Wednesday, the day Congress was expected to count the votes of the Electoral College and certify President-elect Joe Biden's victory. Those protests descended into chaos as demonstrators breached the congressional building — smashing windows, breaking into offices, and looting rooms.

Before the demonstrations turned violent, a number of lawmakers expressed support for the protests. After the Capitol was secured, 147 Republican lawmakers, 139 representatives and eight senators, cast their vote objecting to the certification of Electoral College votes that sent President-elect Joe Biden to the White House.

Now, Marriott International, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Commerce Bancshares, who donated to at least one of the nearly 150 lawmakers who objected, all said they are suspending their donations "to those lawmakers who voted to undermine our democracy," according to Popular Information, a political newsletter that polled more than 140 companies which made contributions in the 2020 election cycle.:snip:
