Google v. Breitbart

Breitbart: Rush Limbaugh: Google ‘Essentially Trying to Erase Breitbart To get the news that Google is trying to suppress, people should add Breitbart to their bookmarks so they can keep up with conservative news and get greater insight into liberal corruption.

Hunter Biden in lucrative deal with Chicom coal company

Biz Pac Review: Presumptive Democrat presidential nominee and professed environmentalist Joe Biden has made it explicit that he is a foe of the U.S. coal industry in the U.S., but his son is allegedly cashing in on the coal industry in China in a venture with a CCP-controlled enterprise. Although these arrangements are complicated to sort out unless you’re a forensic accountant, Hunter Biden reportedly owns 10 percent of a private equity firm called Bohai Harvest, which apparently is also known as BHR Partners, that entered into a contract with a company called Yancoal. The younger Biden allegedly entered into this deal while his dad was still in office as vice president under Obama. “The majority shareholder of the coal company is a Chinese state-owned enterprise Yankuang Group,” The National Pulse claimed about the lucrative plan. “Alongside two state-owned Chinese banks, Bohai Harvest pledged $950 million, and in return ‘collect[ed] interest of 8.55% a year on $760 million of the

The truth about crime and race

Heather MacDonald is always worth listening to on the issue of crime.  She specializes in looking at the data and not in looking at a political agenda.

Violent protesters followed by logistic vehicle

John Sexton: Seattle Launches Investigation After Supply Van Full Of Weapons Found Trailing Behind Rioters This is more evidence that these violent operations against federal facilities are part of an organized criminal conspiracy against the United States.

Majority not buying Democrats blaming Trump for Chicom virus

NY Post: A large majority of Americans blame China for the global spread of the coronavirus as animosity toward the country has soared, according to a new survey. More than three-quarters of Americans — 78 percent — place a “great deal or fair amount of the blame” on China for the virus’ spread around the world, according to the study published Thursday by the Pew Research Center. Another 73 percent of respondents said they had “unfavorable” views of the country — a figure that rose 26 percentage points since 2018, the surveyors found. The survey polled 1,003 voting-age adults over the phone, with a margin of error of 3.7 percentage points, according to Pew. Americans hold equally chilly views of China’s President Xi Jinping , with 77 percent responding that they either have “not too much confidence” or “no confidence at all” that he would “do the right thing” with regards to world affairs. Pollsters found Americans also seem poised to support strong actions against China in respons

Intel looks at media pushing false narrative about criminal acts of 'protesters'

Washington Post: DHS had ‘intelligence reports’ on journalists covering Portland unrest Current and former officials described the practice as an alarming use of a system meant to share information about suspected terrorists and violent actors. These so-called journalists are likely the ones pushing the false narrative that violent mobs were "mostly peaceful" when they were engaged in arson attacks on federal facilities.  The liberal media has become less believable by the day.

UK could be a victim of Biden's bad policies

NY Times: U.K. Officials’ New Trump Dilemma: What if He Loses? If Joe Biden wins the November election, Britain would face a president who opposed Brexit, would look out for Ireland, and may have little interest in a trade deal. These are just some of the bad policies that would exist in a Biden administration.  He would also impose bad policies on Israel.  He would be going to battle with two of America's best allies in the world.  Biden's globalist agenda would return US policies to the bad old days of Obama.

This is rich coming from the paper that pushed the Russian collusion hoax

NY Times: More Than Just a Tweet: Trump’s Campaign to Undercut Democracy Floating the idea of delaying the election was the latest step in the president’s running effort to discredit the election, risking long-term damage to public trust in the system. What utter garbage coming from a paper that still has not apologized for its pushing the Russian collusion hoax with false reports about nonexistent contacts between Trump campaign officials and the Russians.  The NY Times  and others in the liberal media have done more to damage democracy than Trump ever could with a tweet that trolls Democrat paranoia.  This is a paper that participated in a criminal conspiracy to overthrow the 2016 election.  Liberal privilege in this country is never having to say you are sorry.

The liberal fascists trying to suppress conservative speech

Roll Call: ... In too many venues today, the purpose of political speech isn’t to question and debate ideas but rather to ensure ideological conformity dictated by a cancel culture elite that punishes those with “contradictory true thoughts” because those thoughts are seen as incompatible with what amounts to an absolute belief in the infallibility of their own dogma. Bari Weiss, a former opinion page editor of The New York Times , is a case in point. She sent shock waves across the ideological spectrum when she issued a blistering indictment of the Times’ oppressive newsroom in her resignation letter . Weiss hit the newspaper hard. “Stories are chosen and told in a way to satisfy the narrowest of audiences, rather than to allow a curious public to read about the world and then draw their own conclusions.” Her advice for up-and-coming writers and editors? “Rule One: Speak your mind at your own peril. Rule Two: Never risk commissioning a story that goes against the narrative. Rule Th

Big tech manipulating the news to help Democrats?

Miranda Divine: As the war on conservative voices online reaches fever pitch in the run-up to November’s presidential election, Silicon Valley’s oligarchy finally was called to account Wednesday on ­Capitol Hill . “Big Tech is out to get conservatives” Ohio Republican Jim Jordan told the bosses of Google, Facebook, Amazon and Apple. “That’s not a suspicion, that’s not a hunch. That’s a fact.” Then he laid out a litany of censorship atrocities in a blistering opening statement before the congressional antitrust panel. They included: Google removing conservative Web site Breitbart from its search results. Amazon’s video site Twitch suspending President Trump’s account “after he raises concerns about defunding the police.” Facebook removing posts from Trump’s re-election campaign.  Amazon temporarily banning an e-book critical of coronavirus lockdowns written by conservative commentator Alex Berenson. Amazon charity site Amazon Smile “won’t let you give to the [pro-life, pro-marr

Poll indicates large majority concerned about crime following Democrat riots

Red States: So what do Americans really think about all the increase in violence and how is that going to affect the elections? A new poll out indicates that this showing is not good news for Democrats and Joe Biden. The Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll contacted 1,932 registered voters on July 21-23. According to the poll, 77% are concerned about rising crime. In poll numbers, that’s an astronomical percentage. Now, normally one would think that an increase in crime would be bad for the incumbent, Donald Trump. But the poll also indicates that Americans are hip to what’s been going on. From PJ Media: “At the same time they see an increase of violence and crime and are concerned that prosecutors are not prosecuting the crimes — they blame the protests and the high unemployment when asked what is responsible for the spike in violence,” said Harvard CAPS/Harris polling director Mark Penn. “They also single out social media for being used to coordinate violence and in their view n

Durham investigation worries Democrats

PJ Media: Attorney General William Barr reiterated this week that he wouldn’t wait until after the election to release the report of U.S. Attorney John Durham, who is investigating the origins of the Russia collusion story. This has Democrats nervous and preemptively saying that anything Durham finds will be the result of a political witch hunt. Democrats have a lot invested in the Russian collusion narrative and to have it officially debunked would be very damaging to their election prospects. Washington Post: “There’s a real danger, in fact an urgent threat, that anything the Department of Justice does will be timed to aid the president,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D- Conn.) said in an interview, adding, “Barr has proven ready, willing and able to distort, distract and deceive.” At a hearing Tuesday before the House Judiciary Committee, Barr was quizzed briefly by both sides on the matter but offered little to satisfy his questioners. An “urgent threat”? Well, there’s c

Google suppressing search results for Breitbart

Breitbart: A few days after the 2016 election, at an internal meeting later leaked to Breitbart News, top Google executives, including Sundar Pichai, Sergey Brin, and Kent Walker, lamented President Trump’s victory, comparing Trump voters to “extremists” and discussing their desire to make Trump’s election and the populist movement a “blip” in history. True to their word, four years later, Google is deliberately working to interfere with the reelection of Trump in 2020. There are several ways in which Google is interfering in the 2020 election, but this article will focus primarily on one of them: political search bias. Google Has Been Purging Breitbart Content from Search Results Since the 2016 Election Search visibility is a key industry measure of how findable a publisher’s content is in Google search. New data shows that Google has suppressed Breitbart’s search visibility by 99.7 percent since 2016. On April 4, 2016, Breitbart ranked in the top ten search positions (i.e

Democrats weird claim that resisting Antifa insurrection is 'prevocative'

Fox News: Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf told "Bill Hemmer Reports" Wednesday that federal agents will not leave the city of Portland, Ore. until a federal courthouse that has been repeatedly attacked by rioters is "safe and secure." "We will continue to keep law enforcement officers in the area to make sure that that courthouse is secure at the end of the day," Wolf told host Bill Hemmer. Earlier Wednesday, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown announced that federal agents would begin a "phased withdrawal" from Portland Thursday. Wolf said that he and the governor had agreed on a plan to end "the violent activity in Portland directed at federal properties and law enforcement officers" that called for "the robust presence of Oregon State Police in downtown Portland." "Over time," Wolf told Hemmer, "if the Oregon State Police and the plan that has been put in place is successful, and we can responsibly dr

Who knew?--Masks make it harder to identify people

Washington Post: Top facial recognition tech is thrown off by masks, study says, but that could soon change The algorithms can be tripped up by such variables as mask color and shape, researchers find, pushing error rates as high as 50 percent. The only thing really surprising about this is that facial recognition still works 50 percent of the time. Will those wearing the bandito masks be harder to identify because they cover more of the face?

It is not racists to oppose Biden's goofy high density housing scheme for suburbs

NY Times: Trump Plays on Racist Fears of Terrorized Suburbs to Court White Voters President Trump painted a false picture of suburbs under siege, saying he was protecting them from low-income housing, as he seeks to win over white voters who were key to his 2016 victory. This is another example of how the left tries to turn issues into "racism." The opposition to Biden's suburban scheme is that it does away with single-family homes pushing everyone into high-density housing and takes away people's freedom to choose what kind of community they want to live in.  The scheme is also designed to push people into high-density public transportation.  This is after the pandemic has shown both changes would be pandemic disease spreaders as they were in New York City.  The Obama-Biden scheme is to do away with single-family zoning.  I have not heard Trump or any other opponent of the scheme mention race in their defense of the current zoning rules.  In fact, people c

AP falsely claims that Biden has not threatened to stop fracking

AP/Fuel Fix: President Donald Trump took sweeping digs at “crazy left radical Democrats” on a trip Wednesday to the fracking fields of West Texas, launching unsubstantiated claims that a Democratic administration would destroy everything from the country's suburbs to the U.S. energy industry. Trump, speaking in front of stacked oil barrels, also played down the difficulties of the U.S. oil and gas industry, which is still struggling with the pandemic economic downturn and global oversupply that briefly drove oil prices into negative territory this spring. Prices have rebounded to around $40 a barrel, still below what some producers here need to break even. “We’re OK now. We’re back, we’re back,” Trump said to a crowd scattered with people wearing cowboy hats and face masks. He sought to contrast his support for oil and gas with Democratic rival Joe Biden's more climate-friendly energy plan, though Biden himself has stopped short of calling for a ban on hydraulic fracturin

Oregon leaders have still not taken ownership of their failure to stop the riots

Epoch Times: President Donald Trump insisted that the federal government won’t leave Portland, Oregon, until the city was secured following numerous nights of violent unrest. “They either clean out their city and do it right, or we’re going to have to do it for them,” Trump said, referring to city officials in Portland and Oregon officials. The president made the remark to reporters as he left the White House on Wednesday. It came after Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat, announced that she and the federal government reached an agreement for “phased withdrawal” of federal agents from Portland. “These federal officers have acted as an occupying force, refused accountability, and brought violence and strife to our community. Beginning Thursday, all Customs and Border Protection and ICE officers will leave downtown Portland, and shortly thereafter will begin going home,” she said in a statement, adding that she had discussions with Vice President Mike Pence and other unspecified a

Leftist unhappy with consistency?

Legal Insurrection: Leftists Lose Their Minds Because Washington Post Will Capitalize ‘White’ “This is an awful, racist idea. There is no white culture.” The paper changed its stylebook to be consistent with its recent decision to capitalize Black.  My own thoughts are that if you are going to capitalize one of them, you should do both.

The foreign influence in US elections promoted by Democrats

Dale Wilcox: Foreign influence in our elections is bad, unless done by illegal aliens The Democrats use illegals to steal House seats by counting them for reapportionment and in many cases, they encourage them to vote illegally.

The crime spree generated by Democrats war against the cops

Jazz Shaw: Unexpectedly, Minneapolis Car Thefts Skyrocket With Fewer Cops Available ... Brazen robberies and car thefts, often in broad daylight, highlight a growing problem across the city. According to Minneapolis Police Department crime data, there have been 2,170 stolen vehicles this year through July 26. That’s a 46% increase over the same time period in 2019 — when 1,485 auto thefts happened. There have been 886 robberies, a jump of 36% over the same time last year. ... I believe shootings and homicides are also up .  This is another example of the Democrats' nutty response to the death of George Floyd.  They have lost all sense of proportion.

The Democrats premeditated disgrace at the Barr hearing

Power Line: To say the Democrats must be crazy would be an overly charitable interpretation of their performance in the House Judiciary Committee spectacle starring Attorney General Barr yesterday. They only seemed crazy as they repeatedly disgraced themselves. The disgrace, however, was obviously premeditated. It turns out they had called Barr as a backdrop for their own accusatory and disparaging speeches with the thought that they would cut him off and preclude him from responding. They prevented him from responding by “reclaim[ing their] time” virtually every time Barr sought to respond to the accusations. I can’t be the only one who thought to himself, “Forget your time. You need to reclaim your mind.” When it comes to the defense of the United States, they’re on the other side. Barr is trouble. He is trouble because his decency and intelligence exceed that of the Democrats combined. The substantive highlight of the hearing was Barr’s opening statement, which I posted  here

Texas remains top place to do business in US

KXXV: Texas named as 'Best Business Climate in America' by Business Facilities Magazine This has been the trend for several years and the state is attracted businesses from blue states and the recent decision by Tesla to build a huge facility in central Texas shows.

Strozk reported to be cooperating with Durham

CDN: Former FBI agent Peter Strzok is cooperating and working with the John Durham probe of the origins of the Russia Hoax, investigative reporter Adam Housley reports. If true, it would be a bombshell development in the investigation of the criminal conspiracy against Donald Trump. Strzok would be a key witness against higher-ups at the FBI, the intelligence community, and the White House. He is at the center of both the Hillary Clinton exoneration and the origins of the Russia Hoax. He and Andrew Weissmann started Crossfire Hurricane. They used the Brennan Mifsud frame job of George Papadopoulos and the Steele Dossier to obtain fraudulent FISA warrants. Adam Housley, an award winner former Fox News reporter tweeted on July 23rd: “Being told that Peter Strzok is talking with investigators” Soon after Housley then tweeted: “Multiple sources: Strzok is working with investigators. He isn’t the only one.” He isn’t the only one. Let that sink in for a moment. Yesterda

Democrat violence leads to big worry about crime

Bryon Preston: Summer of Love: Huge Majority of Americans Now Concerned About Rising Crime, Feckless Democrat Prosecutors Defunding the police has led to increased crime especially in cities controlled by Democrats.  Soros-backed DA are turning loose the criminals and not charging many arrested by police. The Hill  is out with a  poll  showing a massive majority — 77% — of Americans now concerned about rising crime. And there’s more. “At the same time they see an increase of violence and crime and are concerned that prosecutors are not prosecuting the crimes — they blame the protests and the high unemployment when asked what is responsible for the spike in violence,” said Harvard CAPS/Harris polling director  Mark Penn . “They also single out social media for being used to coordinate violence and in their view not doing much to curb it.” ... There is more. Voters are going to have to take back the DA's office to stop this lawlessness and they are going to have to

Democrats can't handle anyone who disputes their weird point of view

Matthew Boose: The Mob Wants to Ruin Tucker Carlson Because He’s Right The Left wants people to believe that what they have in store for the country cannot possibly be averted, that Americans might as well accept it now. Anyone who suggests an alternative is their enemy and must be destroyed. Carlson articulates the case against the left's policies better than anyone else and they can't match his argument with anything other than "Shut up,"  This is another example of the left-wing cancel culture that is destroying the American civilization. The mob is also out to destroy great reporters like John Kass who pointed out how Soros-backed prosecutors are responsible for the increased criminal activity in this country by turning the perps loose.

Democrats resort to mad dogging Barr instead of having a dialog

David Marcus: Democrats Refused To Let Barr Speak Because They Know He’s Right If the Democrats had anything on William Barr, they would have forced him to answer questions. They don't, so they just talked over him. This mad dogging of a witness is incompatible with democracy.  The Democrats shamed themselves with this demonstration and changed no one's mind.

Biden declares war on US energy dominance

Steve Cortes: It’s difficult to overstate the importance of America’s energy renaissance. Following the dark days of the credit crisis in 2008 and 2009, breakthroughs in energy extraction, especially hydraulic fracturing, facilitated a domestic production boom responsible for almost all the net national job growth in the early years of the recovery. In addition, the national security benefits of energy independence remain immense, as America no longer languishes in a vulnerable position to often volatile energy-rich countries. This energy boom accelerated under President Trump, as his administration green-lighted pipelines, cut taxes, and reined-in regulations allowing the United States to become the world’s largest producer of crude oil and natural gas. Trump travels to Double Eagle Energy today in Midland, Texas, to demonstrate his ongoing commitment to unleashing American energy independence and the millions of high-paying jobs it supports. In contrast, Joe Biden reveals the r

Michigan focus group not impressed with Biden

Monica Showalter: It's gotta be tough to be center-left media outlet Axios. They pay a ton of money to do focus group work on swing state voters ... and the voters don't tell them the story they had probably hoped to hear.  Witness this : Some swing voters in Warren, Mich., question Joe Biden's ability to lead the country — calling him a "puppet" who's not "mentally capable of being president" — while admitting they haven't paid much attention to his events, platforms or speeches. They've got it down as 'some' from their focus group of voters who had voted for President Obama in 2012 and then went for Trump in 2016, which, to be fair, is accurate enough. But it doesn't tell the whole story. Actually, that 'some' looks like quite a lot -- only two of the nine voters in the swing-state focus group actually plan to vote for Biden. The other seven, well, Axios doesn't say, but they're probably either undec

At least one person in St. Louis mob confronted by armed home owners was armed

Just the News: Mark and Patricia McCloskey made national headlines at the end of June when they confronted a mob of protesters outside of their home on Portland Place, a wealthy private street west of downtown St. Louis. Photos and videos of the couple holding firearms and in some cases brandishing those firearms at the crowd went globally viral. St. Louis prosecutor Kim Gardner charged the pair on July 20 with "flourishing" their guns in an unlawful manner. Yet sources in the St. Louis Police Department have told Just the News that video evidence from the altercation indicates that at least one member of the crowd of protesters was armed with a gun during the confrontation. That allegation, if true, could be a key assertion in the McCloskeys' defense. The pair's lawyer has cited the state's "castle doctrine" law, which stipulates that an individual may use deadly force without the need to retreat if he or she "reasonably believes that such

Brennan deserves no respect after his bogus allegations in the Russian collusion hoax

Washington Post: Ex-CIA director writes in upcoming memoir that Trump blocked access to records and notes John Brennan says the CIA refused to let him see classified files as he wrote his book, breaking with decades of tradition in dealing with former directors. He is lucky he is not in jail.  He was heavily invested in the coup attempt against the President.  He pushed the "Trump is a Russian asset" lie repeatedly when he had to know it was not true. 

After around 300 police vehicles were destroyed by NY mobs, an unmarked van makes sense

Washington Post: Viral video shows NYPD officers forcing protester into unmarked van This looks like a common-sense response to mob violence against police vehicles.  If 300 vehicles have been destroyed it means that mobs were being violent toward police and their vehicles.

Teachers' unions want to keep the poor from going back to work

NY Times: Why Is There No Consensus About Reopening Schools? Here’s what we know: With too many variables and too few studies, schools lack the tools and data they need to strike a balance between education and health. What is really happening is that the teachers' union members are getting paid for not working and poor people need the schools to be open so they can go back to work.  The teachers' unions are deliberately trying to hurt the US economy for political reasons.  There is no sound basis for their fear of infection from the children.

Democrats exposed by their own hearing

New York Sun: If the hearing of Attorney General William Barr today made anything clear at all, it is this: The Democratic Party is unwilling to back up the federal authorities who are defending the federal courthouse in Portland, Oregon. In four hours, the House heard from any Democrat nary the slightest expression of support of the officers who are on the front-line of this battle. The hearing will shock millions of Americans. All the more so because of the opening statement by the chairman, Congressman Jerrold Nadler. It has to be one of the rudest statements with which any cabinet officer of the United States has ever been greeted on the Hill. It was followed by the ranking member, Congressman Jim Jordan, who showed a video compilation of one broadcaster after another describing the protests as “peaceful.” It was a veritable meme. Suddenly, Mr. Jordan’s footage showed the Oregon protest itself — hundreds, maybe thousands of persons attacking a major federal courthouse (this o

Over 100 police agencies withdraw from protection of Democrat convention

AP: More than 100 police agencies are withdrawing from agreements to send personnel to bolster security at next month’s Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee, in part because they’re concerned about a recent directive ordering police in the city to stop using tear gas to control crowds. A citizen oversight commission last week directed Milwaukee’s police chief to publicly account for why the department used tear gas during protests in late May and early June after the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis and to change Milwaukee’s police policies to ban the use of tear gas and pepper spray. The Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission said in its order that Police Chief Alfonso Morales could be fired if he fails to comply. That order came amid intense scrutiny of police tactics at protests in Portland, Oregon, and elsewhere. Since the Milwaukee order was issued, more than 100 law enforcement agencies in Wisconsin and across the country decided against coming to Milwaukee, Mo

Google accused of trying to hide information that would hurt Biden campaign

Washington Examiner: Breitbart editor-in-chief accuses Google of systematically blacklisting conservative websites ... A day after Big Tech platforms Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook removed a video of doctors advocating the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine, Marlow told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that he wasn’t surprised by the move. "This is it. Freedom of speech in the United States right now is controlled by Google, it's controlled by Facebook, and it's controlled by Twitter," Marlow said on Tuesday night. "This is exactly why we saw these videos memory-holed from the internet yesterday." Marlow accused the Big Tech platforms of acting as a cover for former Vice President Joe Biden’s White House campaign, adding that Google’s blacklisting of conservative websites “is 100% about the 2020 election and controlling the narrative.” He said his staff has tracked Google's "Visibility Index," which works similarly to the Nielsen Rankings, f

Democrats embarrass themselves at Barr hearing

Michael Goodwin: ... Nadler specializes in duds, demanding that former special counsel Robert Mueller testify a year ago, only to see the Russia, Russia, Russia hysteria collapse on national TV. Then Nadler, bearing a lifetime grudge against President Trump, did such a terrible job in the first impeachment hearings on Ukraine that Speaker Nancy Pelosi demoted him and turned the task over to Rep. Adam Schiff. Yet Nadler is a slow learner and there he was Tuesday, opening the ballyhooed attack on the AG with a statement that was a farrago of lies, fake news and slanderous attacks on law enforcement, Barr and Trump. It was so over-the-top, so fact-free and unsupportable, that it had zero chance of setting the stage for a meaningful interrogation. Then again, honest interrogation was not the intent. Pelosi’s House only does character ­assassination. Recently caught on camera calling Antifa violence in Portland a “myth,” Nadler repeated the gist of that. He said Barr had “endangered Ame

Portland 'protesters' suit against US should backfire on them

Politico: Two groups protesting U.S. agents sent to Portland by President Donald Trump to tamp down demonstrations outside a federal courthouse have sued the Department of Homeland Security, alleging it violated the Constitution by sending federal law enforcement to disperse crowds with tear gas and rubber bullets. The Wall of Moms — a group of self-described mothers — and the Don't Shoot Portland group filed the lawsuit late Monday against Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf and other federal officials. The agency did not immediately respond Tuesday to a request for comment about the lawsuit. Members of the group of mothers have “been tear-gassed night after night, left vomiting and unable to eat or sleep because of the toxic poison blasted at them,” the lawsuit said. It claimed the tactics are unlawful and said the presence of the agents in Portland violates “a foundational principle of American democracy” because the agents are essentially performing local polic

Jim Jordan exposes the media and Democrat fraud of 'peaceful protest'

This video is devastating to the Democrats' narrative and that of their media cohorts.  It demonstrates what an absolute fraud they are participating in while claiming that the violence of the left is a "myth"

The Democrats failure to accept the results of the 2016 election

Mollie Hemingway: The media and Democrats have returned to their pre-2016 election talking point that Donald Trump won’t accept election results. But after nearly four years of refusing to accept their defeat in the last presidential election, it is they and other members of the Resistance who must commit to accepting election results that don’t go their way. The final 2016 debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump gave voters much to think about. That was the night Clinton admitted that she was willing to engage in a proxy war with Russia in Syria. For his part, Trump highlighted Clinton’s radical support of abortion through all nine months of pregnancy, a charge she could not deny. But media coverage in the days that followed focused almost exclusively on Trump’s response to a question posed by moderator Chris Wallace, a Fox News host. Asked if he would “absolutely accept the result of this election,” Trump said — and you may want to sit down for this one — “ I will look
