Trump Campaign Chief Calls Social Media Overlords to the Carpet

Can anyone explain to me the difference between what Twitter is doing in 2018 and what we accused Russia of doing in 2016?

The stories of election meddling censorship on social media continue to pile up in 2018, and some fairly prominent politicians are beginning to take notice.

The democrats have been crying foul on so-called “Russian” election interference from a time before they had even lost the 2016 election to Donald Trump, believing that they can somehow invalidate the result of this contest through their constant casting of doubt.

Now, with 2018 looming, the tech giants of Silicon Valley have now decided to make their own waves in the nation’s electoral process, and have predictably avoided criticism for this in the mainstream media.

That isn’t sitting well with President Trump’s campaign manager.

Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale told CBS This Morning that members of the Left “weren’t very happy” that Facebook and the other members of the “Palo Alto Mafia” helped elect President Trump.

“I think that when the left found out that Facebook, a tool built by Silicon Valley, helped elect President Trump, they weren’t very happy,” Parscale said. “And so they want to do everything they can to help prevent conservative voices. And I think that you have multiple platforms I call the ‘Palo Alto mafia’ trying to stop that.”

Parscale himself was instrumental in the President’s victory, serving the campaign as its digital media strategist.

Parscale wrote exclusively on Breitbart News that Silicon Valley is meddling with free speech and elections, pointing out: “Unfortunately, Big Tech monsters like Google and Facebook have become nothing less than incubators for far-left liberal ideologies and are doing everything they can to eradicate conservative ideas and their proponents from the internet.”

Just earlier today we reported on yet another symptom of this viral outbreak of fascism, with Twitter permanently suspending conservative accounts over their publication of dry and un-opinionated facts.

Democratic Polling Reveals Top Two 2024 Candidates if Biden Opts Out

This is the best they’ve got?

Published

on

Oddly, and almost inexplicably, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki asserted that Joe Biden, one of the least-popular presidents in modern history, is already set on running for reelection in 2024.  This, despite that fact that Biden’s polling numbers are abjectly horrible and the Democratic Party’s most enthusiastic demographics are far from thrilled bout the idea voting for such an ineffective Commander in Chief again.

And let’s not forget that we’re only 10-or-so months into Biden’s first term; there is still plenty of time for things to get worse for the man who was reluctant to run in the first place.

Should Biden actually read the writing on the wall, however, there are two candidates that the Democrats do actually seem enthused about in 2024.

Vice President Kamala Harris is the top choice for Democrats if President Biden chooses not to run again in 2024, according to a new poll.

The vice president received support from 13% of respondents in The Hill/HarrisX poll despite her historically low approval ratings, according to The Hill.

Former first lady Michelle Obama came in second with backing of 10%.

Receiving support below 10% were a handful of former 2020 hopefuls, including Sens. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker; billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg; businessman Andrew Yang; and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

Michelle Obama was resolute in her decision not to run in 2020, and Kamala Harris’ first few months in office as the Vice President have been less than promising.

There is some buzz about Pete Buttigieg possibly running in 2024, (or 2028), but there’s no telling if the current Transportation Secretary has given any thought to the Oval Office as of yet.

Biden Approval Rating Takes Unprecedented Nosedive

But he still says he’s running again in 2024…

Published

on

Given just how unimpressive the Biden administration has been thus far, it is easy to imagine that the President’s approval rating wouldn’t be all that great, but perhaps no one could have quite predicted this.

Biden took office as a man who really didn’t appear to want to be the President.  The Democrats seemed to have railroaded him into the nomination back in 2020, believing that he was just the sort of milquetoast centrist that could wrangle some midwestern moderates away from Donald Trump.

And that part seemed to work.  The issue that arose was Biden and his team’s bitter unwillingness to address any of the issues facing our nation, and simply treading water in the White House.

This has led to a rather remarkable drop in the polls.

President Joe Biden’s approval rating is now underwater by double digits, over 10 months into his presidency, Friday’s RealClearPolitics’ average shows.

Just how bad is it?

RCP’s average of polls, which includes Rasmussen Reports, Economist/YouGov, NPR/PBS/Marist, Reuters/Ipsos, Fox News, Politico/Morning Consult, Quinnipiac, ABC News/Washington Post, Gallup, Monmouth, Federalist/Susquehanna, USA Today/Suffolk, Emerson, and CNN, currently shows Biden’s approval rating sitting at 41.6 percent. A majority, 53.1 percent disapprove of Biden’s job performance, giving him a net negative of 11.5 percent.

Every single poll listed showed Biden’s approval underwater, several by double digits. The USA Today/Suffolk survey, for instance, has Biden underwater by 21 percent, garnering an abysmal 38 percent approval rating. Similarly, Federalist/Susquehanna showed Biden -16, with 36 percent approving and 52 percent disapproving.

As Americans continue to feel the pressures of a holiday season handcuffed by inflation and other economic pressures, there is little doubt that the Biden administration’s lack of progress could continue to drive this downward spiral into further, historically bad territory.
