Obama sent one demand to ensure this anti-Biden ad never airs on TV again

Published

Since Joe Biden announced his campaign for President, he has been waiting for the much-coveted Obama endorsement.

So far it hasn’t come, and there are indications it never will.

But things just took a huge turn after Obama sent one demand letter to ensure one anti-Biden ad never airs on TV again.

With Joe Biden’s campaign not going well, he is hoping for a big win in South Carolina to turn things around.

But all of that is in doubt following an anti-Biden ad from the Committee to Defend the President.

The ad begins with a narrative stating, “Joe Biden promised to help our community. It was a lie. Here’s President Obama.”

It then begins playing audio, in the voice of former President Barack Obama, from his 1995 book Dreams from My Father:

“Plantation politics. Black people in the worst jobs, the worst housing. Police brutality rampant. But when the so-called black committeemen came around election time, we’d all line up and vote the straight Democratic ticket. Sell our souls for a Christmas turkey.”

Naturally, Obama was furious, and sent demand letters to television stations in South Carolina, telling them to no longer air the ad.

“This despicable ad is straight out of the Republican disinformation playbook, and it’s clearly designed to suppress turnout among minority voters in South Carolina by taking President Obama’s voice out of context and twisting his words to mislead viewers,” Katie Hill, Obama’s communications director, said in a written statement. “In the interest of truth in advertising, we are calling on TV stations to take this ad down and stop playing into the hands of bad actors who seek to sow division and confusion among the electorate.”

Committee to Defend the President chairman Ted Harvey defended the ad, citing his group’s long history of taking on Biden.

“The Committee has a long history of taking on Joe Biden, beyond Nevada and South Carolina,” Harvey stated. “President Obama made a point in his book about Democrats paying lip-service to the African-American community and we believe his point applies perfectly to Joe Biden.”

Since the start of his campaign, Joe Biden has been bogged down by controversy relating to past statements, and votes, on racial issues.

Early in his campaign, he found himself in hot water for praising pro-segregation Senators he served with during his career.

So this ad hits him harder than any other ad, and it is especially harmful for him with it airing in South Carolina, which is a must-win state for Biden.

Do you think television stations should allow the ad to play?

    Double Down on the Advertisement. Not a False Advertisement, no Slander. Politics Baby. Not nearly as Obtrusive as the Lies and Deceptive, and Hypocritical antics put forth by the Obama Administration.

    I recall my parents repeating a saying, “If you don’t want to be accused of stealing watermelons, don’t tie your shoes in a watermelon patch.” So Joe tied his shoes in a watermelon patch and now tries to avoid being shown for what he is, and Obama is still trying to get the evidence off his shoes too. Sorry but facts are facts and Obama was and is the most dishonest and worst president in the history of our country. I understand Joe claims to be a Catholic, so I would suggest that he show up in confession bright and early Sunday morning.

    Obama is not relevant. Keep the ad going. It shows how Biden panders to select groups. He didn’t do anything to help those groups. Neither did the worst president we’ve ever had. Let’s face facts. That isn’t something the Obama administration ever did. They just wrapped themselves in lies and corruption. Rather like the entire democratic party is doing now. Pathetic putzes.

    How typical of Bath House Barry to whine and complain when his so called ” legacy” comes into question and he’s exposed for the fraudulent, lying, hypocritical sack of monkey s_ _ t that he is. Why is this piece of trash still trying to remain relevant? No one gives a crap what he has to say. He and his brood need to go back to Kenya to their straw huts where they can sit and swat flies off each other and leave America for us American patriots who truly love this great country of ours

    As long as the ad is accurate I see no reason not to run it is sad and a kind of KARMA when one so supercilious lacks the integrity to stand by their own statements.

You won’t believe what The View wants to do to Tucker Carlson and Tulsi Gabbard

Published

The war in Ukraine has sparked a global crisis with many devastating consequences.

Worse yet, the war propaganda coming from the so-called “mainstream” media is appalling.

And you won’t believe what The View wants to do to Tucker Carlson and Tulsi Gabbard.

The Democrat Media Complex and the warmongers of both parties are itching for escalation in the war in Ukraine.

On the Left, Congressman Eric Swalwell floated the idea of expelling Russian students from the country.

Neoconservatives on the Right like Adam Kinzinger – whose Congressional district was gerrymandered out of existence by Illinois Democrats – wants a no-fly zone over Ukraine, and Senator Lindsey Graham called for someone in the Russian government to assassinate Vladimir Putin.

People who are calling for peace and don’t want to see brinkmanship with a nuclear power, and people who are pushing back against dangerous war propaganda have been labeled “collaborators,” and even “traitors.”

Such is the case with Fox News host Tucker Carlson and former Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.

That’s why the harpies on The View want Carlson and Gabbard investigated and arrested by the Department of Justice.

So-called “Republican” Ana Navarro, who hasn’t espoused a real conservative opinion in a decade, argued, “I think DOJ (Department of Justice) in the same way it is setting up a task force to investigate oligarchs, should look into people who are Russian propagandists and shilling for Putin.”

The establishment is so hot for war, combating propaganda and resisting American involvement is somehow tantamount to “shilling for Putin.”

Whoopi Goldberg got in on the act and said, “They used to arrest people for doing stuff like this. If they thought you were colluding with a Russian agent. If they thought you were putting out information or taking information and handing over to Russia. They used to actually investigate stuff like this.”

Goldberg’s statement is mind-blowing considering she was highly critical of the Hollywood blacklist of the past.

There were communists in the State Department, media, entertainment, and academia that were actually collaborating with the Soviet Union, and the Left believed the McCarthy Era was the worst thing that ever happened in America.

It’s impossible to oppose McCarthyism and call for Carlson and Gabbard to be investigated and arrested.

There is no way that the panelists of The View would have been on board with arresting people who opposed the Vietnam War.

Carlson, who has the top rated show in cable news, is probably the strongest anti-war voice on television.

And Gabbard, a former Army reserve officer, became persona non grata for her anti-war positions.

The ladies of The View and the Left more broadly are exposing themselves to be authoritarians.

One journalist’s lawsuit could end Big Tech censoring conservatives

Published

Social media companies suppressing conservative speech is getting out of hand.

Now someone is fighting back.

And one journalist’s lawsuit could end Big Tech censoring conservatives.

Twitter banned former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson for supposedly spreading “misinformation” about the coronavirus vaccine.

Berenson’s “crime” was posting that the COVID vaccine did not stop transmission of the virus.

In Berenson’s lawsuit, the former New York Times reporter argues that his comments were objectively true.

Berenson also cites California law, which defines common carriers as a platform that “offers to the public to carry persons, property, or messages.”

This argument could prove vital as Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas hinted in an April opinion that Big Tech companies fall under the definition of a common carrier like the phone or mail company, which would limit the ability of Big Tech to censor speech.

Berenson also argued that Twitter acted as an agent of the government to censor his speech, citing Twitter banning Berenson shortly after Joe Biden called on Big Tech companies to censor “misinformation” about the coronavirus.

“The extraordinarily close nexus between the July 2021 statements by senior executive branch officials—including President Biden himself—calling for censorship by such companies and Twitter’s corresponding immediate actions against Mr. Berenson,” the lawsuit added.

There is already established case law that the government cannot pressure private companies to carry out actions that would be unconstitutional if the government performed them.

That argument – as well as the common carrier contention – lays out two legal paths for Berenson to argue his case and potentially find a receptive audience at the Supreme Court.

Conservatives waited for years for a manner in which to secure legal recourse to Big Tech’s ideologically motivated censorship.

Thanks to Berenson’s lawsuit and Big Tech’s overreach, they may have finally found a silver bullet.

Big Tech is trying to censor one undeniable truth about the COVID vaccine

Published

on

Social media censorship is out of control.

Ever since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Big Tech began banning users for posting true information.

And now Big Tech is trying to censor one undeniable truth about the COVID vaccine.

According to a new policy implemented by Twitter, the social media platform can now impose penalties up to a permanent suspension for posting that a vaccinated individual can spread COVID.

“When Tweets include misleading information about Covid-19, we may place a label on those tweets that includes corrective information about that claim,” Twitter’s policy reads. “We may apply labels to Tweets that contain, for example . . . false or misleading claims that people who have received the vaccine can spread or shed the virus (or symptoms, or immunity) to unvaccinated people.”

At the start of the pandemic, social media platforms banned users for posting that the virus likely escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China.

Now Twitter is threatening to ban anyone for posting truthful information about vaccinated individuals still being able to spread COVID.

Twitter’s new policy runs contrary to Centers for Disease Control guidelines that state that “risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection in fully vaccinated people cannot be completely eliminated as long as there is continued community transmission of the virus.”

In addition, Nature.com reported on a study published in October, which showed that fully vaccinated individuals possessed a lower risk of spreading COVID, but that spread was still possible and the vaccine’s protection against spread waned over time.

“The authors found that although the vaccines did offer some protection against infection and onward transmission, Delta dampened that effect. A person who was fully vaccinated and then had a ‘breakthrough’ Delta infection was almost twice as likely to pass on the virus as someone who was infected with Alpha. And that was on top of the higher risk of having a breakthrough infection caused by Delta than one caused by Alpha,” Nature.com reported.

One reason so many people do not trust either the vaccines or the authorities promising the vaccines are safe and effective is because no one allows an honest discussion of the vaccines.

Any hint that the vaccines may not be 100% perfect is labeled as misinformation, a conspiracy theory or “anti-vaxx.”

But Twitter censoring people for posting an honest fact that vaccinated people – while at lower risk – can still spread the coronavirus leaves people with the impression that elite institutions have something to hide.
