VIDEO: Conservative Icon Tears Through 30 Pushups to Teach Reporter a Lesson

He’s still got it!

Published

There has been no shortage of concerns over the health of our elected officials as of late, and with good reason.  We keep electing septuagenarians who aren’t exactly the perfect specimen of physical or mental health. And so, far too often, we hear these elder statesmen ragging on one another’s condition.  During the 2016 election, we had to watch the painful and frankly scary behavior of Hillary Clinton, who was in continual denial about whatever affliction she was dealing with at the time.  In 2020, it was Donald Trump and Joe Biden arguing back and forth over their stamina and physical aptitude.  At one point, Biden even suggested that he would drop and give us several pushups in the middle of a debate if Trump would be willing to match him. That potentially hilarious incident never occurred, (maybe thankfully, in order to save our nation from that embarrassment), but these feats of strength remain out there, in the ether, just waiting for some poor sap to take the bait. A reporter in Texas was almost that sap this week. Texas Republican Party Chairman Allen West, a 60-year-old former Army lieutenant colonel, did 30 pushups at a press conference outside the state capitol on Wednesday. The pushups occurred near the end of the event, which was to discuss the state’s new abortion and anti-transgender bills. West initially challenged a CBS Austin reporter who showed up late to the event to do 30 pushups in order to make up for his tardiness. After the journalist declined, West did the pushups himself. The crowd counted along and then cheered after he completed them in roughly 22 seconds. Video of the incident shows that West has still got it. https://twitter.com/janestreet/status/1390055667612979204?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1390055667612979204%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.newsweek.com%2Ftexas-gop-chair-lt-col-allen-west-challenges-reporter-press-conference-do-30-pushups-1589432 West has long been an icon in the conservative world, and there is little doubt that this…

Social Media Giant Permanently Banishes Pro-Life News Outlet

So much for free speech.

Our nation appears destined to fall into the clutches of a technological oligarchy, headed by the likes of Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg, and there is very little that can be done about it. These two men, who run Twitter and Facebook, respectively, have been ruling their public forums with an iron fist, hiding behind the concept that their private status is a workaround for the First Amendment.  Their gargantuan reach and influence has made it possible for them to act with impunity, steering the narrative on any number of subjects, from Donald Trump to the wonder of maternity. The latest affront to free speech comes to us from Facebook, where a pro-life news organization has been completely banished. Facebook permanently banned LifeSiteNews, a popular pro-life news outlet, for publishing “false information about COVID-19 that could contribute to physical harm.” As justification for unpublishing LifeSiteNews, Facebook cited an article posted on April 10, 2021, titled “COVID vaccines can be deadly for some.” Facebook said they erase Facebook pages that publish “vaccine discouraging information on the platform.” The site’s staff was livid. “This all comes down to another case of Big Tech silencing free speech on their platform,” said LifeSiteNews Marketing Director Rebekah Roberts. “Facebook has been silencing any voice that goes against their beliefs and agenda,” Roberts said. “Our LifeSiteNews Facebook page has been removed simply because we have shared reports of doctors, nurses, expert researchers, and even the former Pfizer VP speaking out against the COVID shots.” This is just the latest in a long line of Orwellian moves by these social media mavens, and may in fact be just another harbinger of something far more sinister to come.
