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.

Video: Biden Can Put the ‘World Back Together,’ Says Failed POTUS Candidate John Kerry

Oh, is that right?

John Kerry failed as a presidential candidate and was arguably the worst secretary of state in modern times. That being said, Joe Biden apparently loves the guy. Go figure. At a recent event in Iowa, Kerry said something that nobody should say about any person – ever. Kerry said Biden can put the “world back together.” And yes, he was absolutely dead serious. WATCH: John Kerry: “Iowa, when you caucus in February, don’t just send a message. Send us a president. Send us a man who can put the world back together. Send us Joe Biden.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1203035127166775296?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203035127166775296&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F12%2Fjohn-kerry-joins-joe-biden-on-iowa-bus-tour-kerry-touts-biden-as-messianic-figure-who-can-save-the-world-video%2F Kerry clearly takes “stupid is as stupid does” to an entirely different level. The guy is just…I don’t know. It’s comical. From earlier that day… Question: “Mr. Vice President, how does it feel to have your friend with you?” Joe Biden: “It feels great to have my friend with me, I can’t think of anybody I’d rather have.” John Kerry: “I’m thrilled to be back in Iowa. I love it.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1203019020959510528?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203019020959510528&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F12%2Fjohn-kerry-joins-joe-biden-on-iowa-bus-tour-kerry-touts-biden-as-messianic-figure-who-can-save-the-world-video%2F If Biden is committing a gaffe, he’s not breathing. The guy thrives on making mistakes. The former VP recently did his best to explain the Second Amendment to his incredibly uninformed fanbase. He blabbered, “I believe in the second amendment but nobody says you can have a rounds — a magazine with a hundred clips in it — a hundred bullets in it. We protect geese more that we protect, no joke, you can only have three shotgun shells when you go shoot for geese. But, guess what, we protect geese better than we do our kids.” WATCH: [email protected] in New Hampshire: “We don’t have the courage to take on the NRA? We protect geese more than we protect, no joke you can only have 3 shotgun shells when you go shooting…

New York Police Officer Bites Into Sandwich, Finds a Razor Blade Stuffed In Between

Oh my goodness!!

There’s a 99% chance that this incident was 100% intentional. A person doesn’t just accidentally leave a razor blade right in the middle of a friggin’ sandwich. Who are we kidding? Is this not, if you really think about it, attempted murder? Shouldn’t it be treated that way, if proven the sandwich maker did what he or she did intentionally? What a shame. Why would anyone even want to be a police officer these days? It’s a lose-lose situation, with the mainstream media and Democrats constantly finding ways to tear them down. Thankfully, there still are brave men and women who are determined to uphold the rule of law and do their best to keep all of us safe. From New York Daily News: An NYPD cop got a sharp surprise when he bit into a sandwich at a Queens shop and cut his mouth on a rusty razor blade stuffed inside, police said. […] The cop, a 24-year veteran of the NYPD, cut the inside of his mouth on the razor as he chomped on the cheesesteak. He was taken to Nassau Community Medical Center for a minor wound. PHOTO: You have to be a special kind of person to support Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). Of course, “special kind of person” can be substituted for ignorant – and should be. AOC supporters aren’t bright, plain and simple. Why this freshman Democrat continues to receive so much attention makes little sense, but she just keeps doing anti-American things and getting away with it. God willing, a conservative will end her political career come next November. Check out her latest ridiculousness, via New York Post: Close to a thousand anti-police protesters descended on Downtown Brooklyn Friday night, blocking traffic, vandalizing a city bus and shouting obscene insults at NYPD cops. The demonstration…
