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.

Trending: REPORT: AOC’s Chief of Staff Was Hired After Funneling Money Through Her Boyfriend

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.

Socialism and Gun Control Are Losing Lottery Tickets in Las Vegas

This “spray and pray” method of choosing a nominee has left the oddsmakers in Sin City with only one real choice.

2020 election

No one can be quite sure if politics will ever be the same after this, the Trump Era.

Certainly, we have already discovered that we will no longer have elections like those we saw in the past, either, with the 2016 circus still continuing to this very day in the Robert Mueller investigation and the “resistance” movement.

The coming 2020 election is shaping up to be no less frenzied than the 2016 contest, although the democrats are the group who’ve convinced themselves to try the “spaghetti on the wall” method of choosing a nominee:  Throw the entire party at the wall and see what sticks.

This isn’t exactly the sort of shrewd, political nuance that has bookies in Las Vegas sweating, either.  This “spray and pray” method of leading your party has left the oddsmakers with only one real choice.

The entry of Sen. Bernie Sanders and 11 other White House challengers has not changed the gambling odds on the expectation that President Trump will win re-election.

The latest odds, taken after Sanders joined the 2020 race on Tuesday, put Trump as a 3-2 lock to win re-election followed most closely by Sen. Kamala Harris, at 10-1.

And the odds of Sanders winning didn’t budge despite announcing his race, said Dave Mason, the sportsbook brand manager of BetOnline.ag.

In a cruel twist of irony for the doomed democrats, a recent poll showed that they had two frontrunners in a dead heat for 2020.

The problem is that neither of these candidates is currently even running a campaign.  One has even flatly said “no”.

POLICE: Smollett Hoaxed Hate Crime to Raise Publicity, Paycheck

Smollett’s crimes are heinous to begin with, but a reasoning of mental health concerns or substance abuse would certainly have sat better with the American people than simple greed.

Jussie Smollett

There are despicable acts committed by despicable people every day, but we, as a society, hold certain egregious infractions as far more sinister than others.

Of course, these are the most heinous of crimes; murder, rape, pedophilia, and hate crimes.  The only situations worse than these acts themselves, is the exploitation of the emotion they cause for personal gain.

That precisely what police are alleging that actor Jussie Smollett has done, now twice having been the phony victim of a phony hate crime concocted by he himself.

What’s even more vile is the reason that police are saying Smollett committed these acts:  Money.

Jussie Smollett, upset by his salary and seeking publicity, staged a fake assault on himself a week after writing himself a threatening letter, the Chicago police said Thursday after the “Empire” actor surrendered to face a charge of filing a false police report.

Eddie T. Johnson, the visibly angry Chicago police superintendent, said Mr. Smollett had taken advantage of the pain and anger of racism, draining resources that could have been used to investigate other crimes for which people were actually suffering.

Johnson then deftly and tactfully made a plea for Americans to get their heads out of Hollywood.

“I just wish that the families of gun violence in this city got this much attention,” he said at a news conference in Chicago.

Smollett’s crimes are heinous to begin with, but a reasoning of mental health concerns or substance abuse would certainly have sat better with the American people than simple greed.

Of course, given the mainstream media’s soft takes on Smollett, there is certainly time for his PR firm to concoct just such a story in an effort to save his career.
