Anti-Drudge Censorship Shill Now Running for Public Office in Cali

This is bad news for anyone who believes in Free Speech.

We live in wild times, my friends, especially when it comes to the world of information.

With a few simple taps of the thumb, we can know almost anything that is a part of mainstream knowledge thanks to the bolt-on brain that we keep in our pockets.  How this nearly unfettered accuses to information will truly affect the world has yet to be fully understood, thanks to a lack of historical perspective at this early stage, but we do know for certain that the human race is transforming thanks to it.

That is why America, and the American idea of freedom of information, must remain a beacon of hope for the world.

Unfortunately, not everyone in the nation has the same idea, and some of those who oppose such liberties are even running for office.

The former Federal Election Commission member who sought to regulate the Drudge Report and other online political speech is running to represent a district that encompasses Silicon Valley in the California Senate, according to a Monday report.

“I care a lot about California, and I want to do things that are in the public interest,” former FEC Commissioner Ann Ravel said in an interview with the San Jose Spotlight. “I’m interested only in doing what’s good for the people. I’ve been doing so much in the area of campaign finance and it’s influenced me a lot.” (RELATED: Deep State At FEC Quits: ‘Looks Like The Republic Might Survive’)

Ravel served on the FEC from 2013-17, and gained a reputation for pushing new rules to regulate online political speech. Republicans said the rules were aimed at requiring anyone who posted political content online — including on social media and on websites such as the Drudge Report — to disclose their activity to the feds. She slammed the agency as “dysfunctional” toward the end of her tenure and proposed reducing the number of commissioners who were allowed to serve.

And, to top it off:

Ravel maintained a close working relationship with President Obama, and she was briefly considered a possible replacement for then-Attorney General Kamala Harris. Former Gov. Jerry Brown ultimately appointed Xavier Becerra to the position instead.

Without a real regard for the idea of free speech, there is little reason to believe that Ravel represents anything other than the left’s eternal lust for power by any means necessary.

Trump Supporters Are Racists & ‘White Supremacists,’ Says Democrat Senator (Video)

What a silly thing to say!

Not enough people come out and say what needs to be said: Democrats are actively trying to kill the United States of America – period. There’s no two ways around it. Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono is one of the more obnoxious members of Congress, and possibly just as ignorant as Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and AOC. On Monday, Hirono made a vile comment about Trump supporters. And she likely won’t face any push back, whatsoever. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHG_u-p15CQ&feature=emb_title Even when Congressional liberals let it slip that impeaching President Trump is all about preventing him from winning re-election, the media doesn’t care. Is that an issue? Sure. But at the end of the day, the public isn’t stupid. They can see that Dems have cheapened the impeachment process for political gain – and it should come back to bite them sooner rather than later. Check out Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono (D). She made it clear that there is “tremendous fear” Trump will win in November if he’s not kicked out of office before then.

Mazie Hirono (D-HI) claimed on Wednesday that members of White House under President Donald Trump’s administration brainstorm daily on new ways to harm illegal immigrants. Hirono said, “I think that the Trump Administration people sit around every single day thinking of new ways to be cruel to these migrants. That’s what they do and tomorrow they will probably come up with something else.” She added, “These families should not be detained and that’s the bottom line, and so we’re now contemplating thousands and thousands of migrant families being detained, doing irreparable harm to little children. When I was in Dilley, we can’t forget seeing in one of…

NBA Store Refusing to Let People Make Customizable Jerseys That Read ‘FreeHongKong’

The NBA is heavily dependent on China. The communist nation has as many basketball fans as the United States has people. And if it don’t make dollars, it don’t make sense. But at what cost? From Daily Wire: The National Basketball Association’s online store blocked people from being able to order customizable jerseys that featured “FreeHongKong” as the name on the back of the Jersey. Sports commentator Clay Travis posted a video to Twitter that showed the NBA blocking the jersey when the name entered was “FreeHongKong” but not when the name was “FreeHongKonu” thus showing that it had nothing to do with the number of characters on the jersey.
