Popular conservative-leaning social media site Parler was forced offline following the January 6 incident in Washington, D.C. After some protesters or outside agitators (numerous Democrats were arrested) got out of hand, President Trump tried to calm the situation with a video plea for everyone to go home. Social media companies responded by banning him from their platforms. But what of Parler, a platform that supports the President? The only way to deal with that was to shut it down. But now, Parler is back!

Parler has developed a reputation as being an alternative to Twitter, which has been traditionally hostile to conservatives. But it found itself shut down with limited warning. Amazon Web Services terminated the company’s web hosting because some people posted about the DC protests on the platform. This move followed Google and Apple’s decisions to remove the app from their respective stores. Parler CEO John Matze was fied by the Board of Directors in an apparent effort to appease liberals. Though all of these companies cited violence, hate speech, and more in their decisions, Parler has always actively monitored for these and removed violations.

Despite the roadblocks put in Parler’s way, it is risen like a phoenix.  “We will not be canceled,” reads Parler’s first official post on the platform’s newest incarnation. The updated community guidelines document reads that Parler  “will not knowingly allow itself to be used as a tool for crime, civil torts, or other unlawful acts.”

“In no case will Parler decide what [content will] be removed or filtered, or whose account will be removed, on the basis of the opinion expressed within the content at issue,” the document continues, assuring users that content moderation will happen fairly — a concern many have after experiences with Facebook and Twitter.

This is good news. Parler has shown that while liberals can knock us down, we can get back up and keep fighting. We should all remember the strength of the most hated, most bullied social media platform in history. If they can stand strong, so can we.

As we all expected, President Trump was found innocent of the bogus charge of “incitement of insurrection” Democrats slapped him with. The Left hates Donald Trump at levels that approach derangement, and their obsession has led to them trying to impeach him not once — but twice, the latter time after he was already out of office and was a private citizen. While the trial revealed a divide in the GOP between those who love our Constitution and those who don’t, overall, the Senate agrees that Donald Trump is innocent.

Seven Republicans joined Democrats in their attempt to railroad the President. But their efforts were not enough. Thankfully, most of the Republican Party — even those like Mitch McConnell who hate Donald Trump — believe in the Constitution. President Trump was found innocent thanks to a coalition of Republicans who genuinely believe in his innocence and those who feel that attempting to remove a private citizen from an office he no longer holds is unconstitutional. The President has released a statement regarding his acquittal, and it has Democrats enraged.

“I want to first thank my team of dedicated lawyers and others for their tireless work upholding justice and defending truth,” the statement says. “My deepest thanks as well to all of the United States Senators and Members of Congress who stood proudly for the Constitution we all revere and for the sacred legal principles at the heart of our country.” President Trump lays into Democrats, who are in the process of abusing power in exactly the way they accuse Republicans of doing:

“It is a sad commentary on our times that one political party in America is given a free pass to denigrate the rule of law, defame law enforcement, cheer mobs, excuse rioters, and transform justice into a tool of political vengeance, and persecute, blacklist, cancel and suppress all people and viewpoints with whom or which they disagree. I always have, and always will, be a champion for the unwavering rule of law, the heroes of law enforcement, and the right of Americans to peacefully and honorably debate the issues of the day without malice and without hate.”

 “This has been another phase of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our Country,” Trump says, noting that no other President in American history has been treated this way.

President Trump also hints at exciting news, perhaps related to a political party he has hinted at forming. “I have much to share with you in the months ahead,” he says. The President has vowed not to give up on America. It’s up to us to stand with him against those who oppose freedom.

Despite the shiny, “let’s all hold hands” rhetoric in his campaign, Biden is and always has been a snake, willing to say anything to get what he wants. Now that he’s the most powerful man in the world, his true colors are showing — most recently, with how he chooses to allocate economic relief to struggling businesses. Biden announced one month ago that he intends to employ discriminatory practices in his allocation of pandemic business relief. Still, nothing has changed.

The Biden Administration is calling for unity and the man himself claims he’s the President of “all” Americans. But the actions of Biden and his administration say the opposite. Ever since he took office, Democrats have tried to paint conservatives as terrorists, falsely accused Republican lawmakers of trying to have them murdered, and other heinous garbage we expected but hoped wouldn’t happen.

It’s been so bad that leftist lawmakers are even speaking out against Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and other Democrats who are acting horribly toward those of us on the Right. But if you were hoping that Biden’s policy would match his campaign rhetoric rather than the inflammatory hate speech of his post-election colleagues, you’ll be disappointed. He intends to treat American businesses, at least in part, differently based on the race and sex of the owners.

Joe Biden announced last month that certain businesses will be left behind while others benefit from his favorite brand of identity politics. “Our focus will be on small businesses on Main Street that aren’t wealthy and well-connected, that are facing real economic hardships through no fault of their own,” Biden said in a video posted to Twitter.

That part sounds great. There are numerous small businesses owned by American men and women of all races, creeds, and colors in dire need of help right now. “Surely, recognizing this, Biden has something great in mind that will be equally applied based on need and no other factors,” you may say. Unfortunately, you’d be wrong. Biden explains that priority will be given to certain groups of people:

 “Our priority will be Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American owned small businesses, women-owned businesses, and finally having equal access to resources needed to reopen and rebuild.”

Why do race and gender play any role in whether a business is deserving of aid? Naturally, the Biden administration didn’t address that question. The response to Biden’s discriminatory practices was lukewarm at best, with many calling the policy exactly what it is.

In a time where unity matters more than ever, as 3-4,000 Americans a day die to the pandemic under Joe Biden, it’s imperative that all Americans have equal access to every single relief tool available. It’s disgusting that the Biden administration is moving forward with this plan to disenfranchise some Americans while actually providing help to others. But despite backlash, nothing about this policy has changed.

Many Americans missed this, but we need to come together and demand that Joe Biden treat all Americans -of every race, of every gender, be treated equally in these trying times. Call your Congresspeople and demand that every American business owner have equal access to relief. We’re going to get through this, but we need to do it together — not as separate, hyphenated subsections.

Following Trump’s acquittal in the Senate, Nancy Pelosi came completely unhinged, attacking Republicans who voted with the Constitution against impeaching a private citizen — a man who is no longer in office and therefore cannot be removed from it.

After President Trump was found innocent of inciting a rebellion or whatever Democrats claim he did this week, Pelosi launched into an insane screed, accusing Republicans of caring more about their party than the Constitution — the same one that says a private citizen cannot be impeached after he leaves office.

“What we saw in that Senate today was a cowardly group of Republicans who apparently have no options, because they were afraid to defend their job, respect the institution in which they serve,” Pelosi said. She accused Mitch McConnell, a political opportunist who has recently begun attacking Trump but ultimately voted against impeachment, of being the cause behind why Trump’s trial did not happen before Joe Biden’s inauguration.

Though some Republicans chose to censure Trump, Pelosi has a problem with that too. “Censure is the slap in the face of the constitution,” Pelosi says. “It lets everybody off the hook.

“All these cowardly senators who couldn’t face up to what the president did and what was at stake for our country are now going to have a chance to give a little slap on the wrist?” she adds. “We censure people for using stationary for the wrong purpose. We don’t censure people for inciting insurrection that kills people in the Capitol.”

There was, of course, no insurrection. A protest got out of hand — thanks in part to more than 20 Democrats and nonvoters who were for some reason in the midst of an allegedly pro-Trump rebellion. The President tried to calm the crowd, but social media companies responded by removing his calls for peace from the internet.

Almost 3,000 Americans died of COVID-19 on Friday — an estimated nearly-9,000 over the weekend. Though Joe Biden has promised to do something about the pandemic, which is currently killing more a day on average than when Donald Trump was in office. So far, Americans have not seen the results they were promised. But they have seen Joe Biden “barely” win a game of Mario Kart against a child.

According to the White House schedule, Joe Biden has had nothing on his schedule for the entire weekend. Americans continue to die, so he must have kept a clear schedule for a good reason, right? Wrong. Biden jetted off to Camp David on Friday to attend to the very urgent business of…chucking turtle shells at people.

“Secret service made an exception and allowed him to drive himself,” Biden’s granddaughter Naomi posted to Instagram regarding the super-important Mario Kart gaming session. “A little rusty, but he still won (barely).” She offered no evidence that he did not cheat to win, as 75% of Republicans agree he did to “win” the election.

As predicted, COVID-19 ceased to be a priority the moment Biden took office. Not much work has been done to quell the pandemic despite Biden’s pre-election rhetoric. On a weekend during which he should be tirelessly working to serve the American people, he has decided to take his family on vacation to play video games and lounge around.

During Biden’s vacation, Americans have witnessed his spokesman resigning after he was busted threatening a female reporter and the acquittal of Donald Trump, which ended an unconstitutional attempt to destroy a private citizen after he has left office. It’s clear already that Joe Biden does not intend to take his job seriously. But you won’t see Democrats demanding that he be removed from office for playing Mario Kart and enjoying a nice vacation as nearly 9,000 Americans died.

Democrats’ second attempt to impeach President Trump has failed, but we now know how boken the Republican Party is. It’s on record. While most of the GOP did the right thing and voted against the Left’s attempt to “remove” President Trump for office almost a month after his tenure ended, seven Republicans joined Democrats in this attack on our constitution.

On Saturday, President Trump was acquitted of “incitement of insurrection.” Though 57 Senators voted to convict — 48 Democrats, two Independents, and 7 Republicans — enough of the Republican Party stood strong and refused to allow what President Trump has called “the greatest witch hunt in the history of our country” to succeed.

“There is no question — none — that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day. No question about it,” traitor Mitch McConnell said. “The people who stormed this building believed they were acting on the wishes and instructions of their president. And having that belief was a foreseeable consequence of the growing crescendo of false statements, conspiracy theories and reckless hyperbole which the defeated president kept shouting into the largest megaphone on planet Earth.” Ultimately, McConnell cast a “not guilty” vote — not because he didn’t want to destroy Trump, but because he at least believes in the Constitution enough to view this sham trial as unconstitional.

“The actions and reactions of President Trump were disgraceful, and history will judge him harshly,” said West Virginia Senator Shelley Moore Capito. She also voted to acquit, but for the same reason as McConnell.

“My vote to acquit should not be viewed as exoneration for [Trump’s] conduct on January 6, 2021, or in the days and weeks leading up to it,” says Minority Whip John Thune, who also voted to acquit for the same reasons. “What former President Trump did to undermine faith in our election system and disrupt the peaceful transfer of power is inexcusable.”

The Republicans who voted against President Trump are: Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, and Pat Toomey. All of these men and women need to be removed from office at the earliest opportunity. If we are going to heal the party, we need to cut out the infection.

Everyone knows Nancy Pelosi is a petty piece of human garbage. But is she petty enough to stop a Republican Congresswoman’s son from attending her swearing-in ceremony? Even if her son is in the Naval Academy? According to New York Rep. Claudia Tenney, Pelosi is absolutely, 100 percent that petty.

This week, Tenney’s race against Democrat Anthony Brindisi was decided. And in a shocking turn of events, Tenney managed to dethrone the incumbent by 109 votes. But the victory didn’t become official until a decision by the state’s Supreme Court. The two have been bitter rivals for quite some time. In 2016, Tenney was elected to Congress. In 2018, Brindisi beat her. In 2020, Tenney took her seat back. For Democrats, including Pelosi, this must have been irritating at best.

Tenney was sworn in on Thursday. While members who were sworn in last month were allowed to have one family member present, the newly-elected Congresswoman wasn’t afforded that privilege.

“I just would have loved to have my son with me. I raised him as a single parent,” Tenney told Fox News. “We’ve been with each other, nothing greater day than his graduation from the U.S. Naval Academy, it was such an honor and now he is serving our country.” She says she even asked if he could just be in the gallery. She didn’t even request for him to be on the House floor. Nevertheless, she was told it was not allowed.  “There was no reason indicated,” she says. Her son was forced to “wait outside the gallery door” instead of witnessing a happy moment for his mother.

Pelosi claims that spite was not a factor, but instead points to COVID restrictions. Via spokesman Drew Hammill, Pelosi alleged that she was not involved in the decision. “The COVID restrictions are set by the House Sergeant at Arms and the Attending Physician,” Hammill says, adding that this  “has nothing to do with politics.” The same, he says, would happen “to a Democratic member” despite us knowing for a fact from the swearings-in of House members last month that this is not true. Democrat Tulsi Gabbard spoke out about this incident:

Tenney says that there was “no discussion of COVID” and that her son “managed COVID protocols.” In other words, he is a safe person to include in the event. “We just thought it was the least we could ask,” Tenney says. “It was nice of him to take time out of his busy job serving our country to come and support me as I got sworn into the House” even if she can’t get answers on why she was not allowed to have him present.

“He was disappointed,” she adds. “He just wanted to be there for me. We are very close.” It’s pretty clear that Tenney was singled out, but this is something we may just have to get used to under Biden — unless we fight back.

Yet another RINO is showing her true colors. President Trump’s former U.N, Ambassador, Nikki Haley, just threw the President under the bus in a huge way. In a recent interview with Politico, she viciously attacked President Trump in a way that echoes Democrats’ anti-Trump propaganda.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she told Politico on Friday. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t ever let that happen again.”

This is a strange pivot, as just weeks ago she was defending Trump in an appearance on Laura Ingraham’s show. “They beat him up before he got into office and they’re beating him up after he leaves office,” she said on January 26. “I mean at some point, give the man a break. I mean, move on if you truly are about moving on.”

But now, Trump is the enemy of the people in Haley’s eyes. Just weeks after she demanded that everyone give him a break, she is now one of the people she criticized.

“He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it,” Haley now says, adding that “there’s nothing that you’re ever going to do” to make President Trump, who agrees with two-thirds of Republicans that the election was stolen, “feel like he legitimately lost the election.” 

Many speculate that Haley plans to run for President in 2024. Is this sudden shift in her attitude toward the President intended to tell the Swamp she’s willing to play ball? Is it a way to endear herself to democrats? It’s unclear why Haley suddenly changed her mind about the President, but something stinks to high heaven about her sudden and unwarranted attacks.

Joe Biden talks endlessly about unifying America. In fact, it was a campaign promise. But so far, we have seen Leftists at even the highest levels of government repeatedly paint us as terrorists and cause chaos. Now, Biden officials are even threatening reporters for doing their jobs.

Biden White House deputy press secretary T.J. Ducklo is in hot water after he decided to unify the country be attacking and threatening a female reporter. After a Politico reporter asked Ducklo about his romantic relationship with Axios reporter Alexi McCammond, the Biden administration employee laid into Tara Palmeri.

Vanity Fair reports that in an off-record call on January 20, Ducklo threatened Palmeri. “I will destroy you,” Ducklo said, threatening to ruin Palmeri if she published anything about the relationship. This was strange, as it was a male reporter who originally contacted Ducklo about the story. For some reason, he chose instead to attempt to intimidate Palmeri. The Biden official also told the reporter that Politico only wanted to report on the relationship because Palmeri is “jealous” that an unidentified man “wanted to f*ck” McAmmond “and not you.” He further accused her of being “jealous” of the relationship.

“I am not joking when I say this: If you are ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot. No ifs, ands, or buts,” Biden said during a swearing-in of appointees on his first day in office. But Ducklo was not fired on the spot.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said via Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continues, adding that Ducklo has been suspended for one week. Once he comes back — still not fired on the spot — he won’t work with Politico reporters. In other words, the publication will receive less access because one of their reporters spoke out after Ducklo attacked her. The Biden administration is punishing the press in the same manner liberals say Trump did.

If Biden will not play by his own rules, how can we expect him to play by any rules?

In November, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban did the unthinkable. Though the National Anthem is a staple at sporting events, he banned it from games — another assault on patriots everywhere. This went unnoticed through 13 games of the current season because fans were not allowed to attend games. But once they were allowed to return to the stadium, they realized what Cuban had done.

“It was my decision, and I made it in November,” Cuban told The Athletic after he was caught. He didn’t elaborate, but he was called out by fans and patriots everywhere. “What’s the reason for it?’ Dallas County Republican Party communications director William Busby asked after learning that the National Anthem had been banned. “Is it political correctness? Is it to keep players from kneeling. What is the reason for it? There seems to be no answer for it. I think if Mark Cuban would give some answers, that would probably make people feel a lot better because then at least they would know.” 

Now, Cuban says he didn’t do the thing he admitted to doing. “We’re always talking to our community. That’s something [Mavericks CEO Cynthia Marshall] stands for and is very insistent upon and has become a core part of who we are at the Dallas Mavericks,” Cuban told ESPN.

“In listening to the community, there were quite a few people who voiced their concerns, really their fears that the national anthem did not fully represent them, that their voices were not being heard,” he added. “So we’ve had a lot of conversations about whether or not we should play the anthem.”

Cuban now says he chose  “to not play it and just see what the response was, knowing that we were going to have ongoing conversations about it.” He adds:

“We didn’t make any decision to never play the national anthem then — that wasn’t the case at all. We didn’t cancel the national anthem. We still had our flag flying proud up on the wall at the American Airlines Center and everybody had the opportunity to address it and pray to it or salute to it or whatever their feelings are.”

Cuban says that  “there was never any final decision that was made that we would not play the anthem.” But Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle says he’s lying. “It’s an animated discussion, which is certainly not surprising,” Carlisle said. “This was Mark’s decision. He was steadfast about it.”

Bur Carlisle adds that the public backlash has forced Cuban to do the right thing: “I also know moving forward we will be playing the anthem at all home games, along with every other team in the league. It’s been quite a day.”

The Mavericks, for the first time this season, played the Anthem on Wednesday night before their home game against the Hawks.
