DAVIDSON: Bottled Up Rage on the Right

The cold civil war has been brewing for months.

The cold civil war has been brewing for months. Has the hot civil war begun? Prior to the election, news reports across America featured businesses boarding up storefronts and windows. If President Donald Trump had been declared the winner on November 3rd, and re-elected, in all probability, from that day to the present we would be experiencing violence in several hundred American cities perpetrated by Antifa, Black Lives Matter advocates, anarchists, and insurrectionists.

The riots, looting, mayhem, and murder during this Summer and early Autumn bear witness to the Left’s insatiable appetite for intolerance and even violence towards anyone and anything who they deem to be unworthy.

Since November 3rd, the nation has been in a muddle. On some level, virtually everyone who voted for Trump knows that the Democrats perpetrated massive fraud. By some surveys, even a sizable number of Democrats believe that there has been notable fraud in favor of Joe Biden.

Priming the Pump for Violence

Because every step of the way the press has shielded Biden and the Democrats, on every potential news-item and issue, it was all but inevitable that conflict in the streets would eventually breakout, the likes of which we have not witnessed for a very long time. How did this happen and why is it so?

Our press, which traditionally has served as the fourth estate, has let us down terribly. These organizations simply no longer do their job. They offer no objectivity, almost across the board. ‘Journalism’ today, as practiced by the ‘mainstream’ media, is advocacy journalism – not truly journalism at all. They pick a candidate, a viewpoint, or an issue, and go all out to advocate for it. Hence, their reporting is inherently biased, as is the coverage of Donald Trump, the Trump campaign, and the 2020 election.

The mainstream media pounded in, long and hard, that Joe Biden wa the winner of the election. Despite verifiable evidence, when gargantuan, unprecedented, civilization-shaking fraud is tolerated, spasmodic rage is predictable. How bad the destruction will be is squarely the fault of the ‘mainstream’ media for not providing balanced coverage.

Less Likely to Revolt

Had there been balanced coverage of the election season, November 3rd, and what has transpired since, more people would have a decent chance at knowing that significant fraud occurred. Hence, more people would understand the importance of the Trump campaign lawfully challenging the results.

Too many on the Left regarded all of the evidence as a Trump ‘conspiracy,’ and as an attack on the truth. The ‘mainstream’ press affirmed these erroneous notions.

On Their Shoulders

The unfortunate reality of our times is that the press is fully engaged in fomenting an environment in which violence will take place. This is not only on their shoulders, they seem to want violence. Their total lack of objectivity, total unwillingness to report anything semi-related to the truth, and total proclivity for offering no balance leaves multi-millions of many people feeling as if they got ripped off.

Our press today is beyond shameful. Going forward, we will look back years from now and regard the press of this day as no better than Pravda, in the Soviet Union, circa 1930s. In any case, we are at a moment in history which will impact our nation forever. Whether on the left or the right, we will refer to this election as an upheaval.

If not already so, it will become increasingly apparent to everyone that we cannot continue in this mode. We must find some way to achieve some semblance of national unity, or we are doomed. Abraham Lincoln said it best, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.”

Capitol Cop Charged with Obstruction After Coaching Rioters on Social Media

His arrest came over nine months after the Capitol riot itself.

Published

Over the course of the next several months, (or more), we will be inundated with stories pertaining to the adjudication of cases stemming from the events of January 6th, and we certainly aren’t going to like everything that we hear.

For some, it will be the realization that some of these insurrectionists did indeed mean to do harm to our elected officials, including then-VP Mike Pence.  For others there will be angst as Obama-appointed judges ignore prosecutors’ requests and tack on additional jail time for those convicted in the incident.

And, for a great many of us, there will be some concerns about the possibility that participants in the incident were propelled and protected by Capitol Police. 

A 25-year veteran of the U.S. Capitol Police force was charged Friday with trying to protect a man who was later accused of illegally entering the Capitol during the January 6 riot.

A grand jury indictment charged Officer Michael Angelo Riley with repeatedly telling the man to delete all social media that would provide proof of entering the building that day.

“[I’]m a capitol police officer who agrees with your political stance,” Riley said in a Facebook direct message, according to the indictment. “Take down the part about being in the building they are correctly investigating and everyone who was in the building is going to be charged. Just looking out!”

Riley was arrested on Friday, some 9+ months after the storming of the Capitol itself, which appears to indicate just how far we are from the end of this issue.

Brutal Hashtag Trends on Twitter as Biden Blamed for Supply Chain Disaster

Americans are NOT happy!

Published

on

Problems are continuing to pile up for President Joe Biden, and the nation at large has certainly taken notice.

Biden’s first nine months in office have been nothing but trouble, in all honesty, and the Democratic Party isn’t even trying to hide that fact anymore.  Between the border crisis, the labor shortage, and his inability to get even the most basic bits of his agenda passed in Congress, it appears at times that the administration is simply doomed.

Now, with a supply chain issue bearing down on the nation as well, Twitter users are placing the blame squarely on the Commander in Chief in a brutal fashion.

The hashtag #EmptyShelvesJoe shot to the top of the trending topics on Twitter Thursday amid the supply chain crisis threatening the nation’s economy and holiday shopping.

Social media users employed the tagline to rip President Biden for empty shelves and skyrocketing prices caused by a backlog of shipping containers waiting to dock at California ports.

And they weren’t holding back.

“Just went food shopping…again…thanks #EmptyShelvesJoe I really love having to go every day now in order to find what used to take one trip,” one account wrote, along with a photo of near-empty shelves at a grocery store.

“I’m pretty sure @JoeBiden and the Democrats in DC are eating just fine and are having no issues getting what they need,” another Twitter user posted. “The rest of us lowly Americans who actually go to the grocery stores, not so much. #EmptyShelvesJoe.”

Biden recently announced that the federal government would be easing restrictions for port employees in an effort to expand working hours and power through the logjam.
