Dear Patriots

Hang in there. There IS good news! Keep praying!

1- For years we have watched Congress haul in the CEOs of Big Tech and yell at them on TV. Then the CEOs continued business as usual because Congress NEVER did anything to halt their leftist monopolies. This week, there was a small but significant set of reform bills passed. Until we elect people who refuse lobby money from Big Tech, we won’t get much more.

Can Republicans Ever Fight Big Tech? Last Week Gave Us Our First Clue

QUOTE: Something unusual happened on Capitol Hill last week: The Big Tech companies, their hundreds of lobbyists, and their well-funded network of policy groups took a loss. The House of Representatives successfully passed a small package of antitrust reform bills designed, in part, to limit gamesmanship and increase scrutiny on the largest, most powerful corporations in world history.

Now, they didn’t save the world or anything; the bills the House just passed are small, procedural, and bureaucratic in the grand scheme of things. Nevertheless, they are very important.

One bill requires firms undergoing a merger to disclose whether they receive funding from the Chinese government. (Sounds smart enough.)  The second bill makes it easier for state antitrust enforcers to oversee the corporate giants among them by letting states have their antitrust cases heard in local courts, rather than forcing cases to be moved to distant jurisdictions. (A deeply American idea.) The third bill increases the fees billion-dollar companies must pay to have their mergers reviewed by antitrust enforcers at the Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission.

Those second and third bills have already passed the Senate. It’s nearly certain all three of these will become law.

Seriously: This is the first step they’ve taken.

Former Dem Rep gets 30-month prison sentence in ballot-stuffing election fraud case

QUOTE: A former Pennsylvania congressman was sentenced to over two years in jail for committing election fraud aimed at helping Democratic candidates.

“Protecting the legitimacy of elections is critical to ensuring the public’s trust in the process,” FBI Philadelphia Division Special Agent in Charge Jacqueline Maguire said in a press release last week. “Through his actions, Ozzie Myers pointedly disdained both the will of Philadelphia voters and the rule of law. He’s now a federal felon twice over, heading back behind bars, with time to consider the great consequence of free and fair elections.”

Former Rep. Michael “Ozzie” Myers pleaded guilty to frequently stuffing ballots, conspiring to illegally vote in a federal election and deprive civil rights, voting records falsification, and bribery in favor of Democratic candidates, according to a Justice Department Press release. He carried out the schemes in Pennsylvania during the 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 elections, the DOJ said.

He will now serve 30 months in prison, three years of supervised release, and was fined a total of $100,000.

QUOTE The latest Monmouth University poll released on Monday showed that there had been a massive ten-point swing from August to September in favor of Republicans controlling Congress after the midterms.

The Building Hispanic Red Wave

QUOTE:  This week in Miami, the top Hispanic conservative leaders in America will convene for the Hispanic Leadership Conference. Hispanic voters continue to move the political right while a new cadre of dynamic, patriotic populist candidates act as an accelerant of this emerging phenomenon. Most of these office seekers are young and new to political office, and many are women. All of them form the vanguard of a new political trend that transforms American politics in lasting ways.

This conference will culminate with a keynote address from President Trump. His headliner participation recognizes the crucial role he has played in breaking down longstanding political assumptions among the so-called “experts” that Hispanics must vote for Democrats.

President Trump proved that Hispanics rally to a muscular vision of nationalist politics, not the watered-down, milquetoast “Democrat-lite” approach that establishment Republicans previously pursued with Hispanics. Instead, the America First movement combines cultural conservatism with economic populist nationalism to form an attractive and winning formula to earn Hispanic support.

Trump calls for return to paper ballots, end of no-excuses mail-in voting

QUOTE: Former President Donald Trump is offering a specific policy prescription for restoring Americans’ confidence in elections, saying it is time for states to return to paper ballots and to end no-excuses absentee ballots so that results can be finalized on Election Day and the nation can stop looking like a “laughing stock” to the world.

“I call them the fake vote store. That’s the mail in ballots. We shouldn’t have mail in ballots, unless somebody’s very, very sick or it’s military far away,” Trump told the Just the News, No Noise television show in a wide-ranging interview aired Wednesday night on the Real America’s Voice network.

“We should go to paper ballots, like they did in France. Thirty-six million people (voted) and they had no disputes. Everyone had paper ballots, and it was one-day voting. They didn’t store them over there in the corner, and you see the boxes moving all over the place,” he said.

The state “should go to one-day voting. They should go to paper ballots. And you would have elections that everybody could be proud of. Because right now, this country is a laughingstock all over the world. They’re laughing at our stupid elections,” he added.

6-  It is always good when someone says the quiet part very loudly! This loud truth made many leftist Hollywood elites meltdown. But, sensible people have always know this.


Kanye West calls BLM a ‘scam’ amid ‘White Lives Matter’ shirt uproar

QUOTE: Despite fierce backlash from black celebrities — including a walkout from Jaden Smith — Kanye “Ye” West is not apologizing for his controversial “White Lives Matter” attire during Paris fashion week in France.

In fact, the 45-year-old rapper recently doubled down on his criticism of Black Lives Matter in a Tuesday Instagram story.

“Everyone knows that Black Lives Matter was a scam,” he declared, seemingly referencing the group’s multiple multimillion-dollar scandals. “Now its over You’re welcome.”

The Chicago-born rapper was addressing the controversy that began after he donned a T-shirt emblazoned with “White Lives Matter” while staging a surprise Yeezy fashion show that showcased his Season 9 clothing line.

Liz Truss ‘advised King Charles to not give speech at upcoming climate summit’

QUOTE: Liz Truss reportedly told King Charles to abandon his plans to attend the Cop27 climate summit next month.

Charles wanted to give a speech at the conference in Egypt but has had to put to the plans on ice after Ms Truss intervened, The Sunday Times has reported. Ms Truss apparently put a stop to the speech during a personal audience with the King last month.

Buckingham Palace confirmed on Saturday night that Charles would not attend the conference.

Charles is a prominent climate campaigner and had been invited to attend the Cop27 summit.

Federal Judges Stick It To Yale Law: If You’re A Cancel Culture Cesspool, We Won’t Hire Your Grads

QUOTE: A federal judge vowed to push back the cancel culture and ideological intolerance on elite college campuses by not hiring Yale Law School students as law clerks.

Speaking at a conference in Kentucky, Judge James Chun-Yee Ho of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit blasted colleges for not “teaching students how to agree to disagree.” Instead, “They’re teaching students how to destroy.” He named a few examples, and Yale stood out for some of the most disturbing.

In Ho’s words, “We’re not just citizens. We’re also customers. Customers can boycott entities that practice cancel culture … I wonder how a law school would feel if my fellow federal judges and I stopped being its customers.” Ho announced that he would stop hiring Yale Law School students as clerks and urged other judges to join him. He said he singled out Yale Law School because “Yale is worst when it comes to legal cancellation … and it sets the tone for other law schools and the legal profession at large.” By publicly boycotting Yale Law School students, Ho hopes to “send the message that other schools should not follow in Yale’s footsteps.”

9- Because the Fake News will hype anything the looney left does and says, it is made to seem that those who are normal are in the minority. But, most of it is fake. Turns out, high school kids, as has been the case for generations, just want an excuse to get out of school!

Trans student walkout activists brag about fooling media, admits most just wanted to skip school

QUOTE: A video has surfaced admitting a trans activist group that staged school walkouts in Virginia was led by a former Democrat staffer and a large number of the students who walked simply wanted to ditch school.

Not everything is as it seems concerning the walkouts. An internal Zoom call acquired by The Daily Wire allegedly paints quite a different picture of the protest. In the video, the Pride Liberation Project reportedly boasted about how they tricked the media and that, instead of being civil rights heroes, most of the students just wanted to skip school.

The media salivated over the walkouts from nearly 100 Virginia public and independent schools with thousands of students taking to the streets in protest of Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s proposed transgender policy that would force students to use the restroom according to their biology.
