Mike S. Adams


As a free speech advocate I can say without equivocation that I have never seen a more anti-free speech group than Black Lives Matter. They charge podiums, assault speakers, and rip microphones out of people's hands. The common thread is not the subject matter of the speakers. It is their race. Perhaps it is time to rename their group "Silencing Whitey." Furthermore, they reinforce the racist stereotype that black are aggressive, assaultive, and violent, which is the very stereotype they allege causes black death. To say this group is useless is an undeserved compliment. They are far worse than useless. They are killing free speech and ultimately killing more black people in the process. When you run the police out of the hood, black on black violence increases.


***********


Those words were accurate when Mike penned them in 2016, and they were also prophetic of the ugly events of 2020. And now Joe Biden, after watching BLM rampage virtually unchecked, burning and looting cities, attacking and intimidating dissenters such as my (David’s) brother, and condoning all of that, has the unmitigated gall to say this: “No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesters yesterday that they wouldn’t have been treated very differently than the mob that stormed the Capitol.”


That is inaccurate and inflammatory. He condemns only the lawlessness of his opponents, not that of his supporters. I thought Biden said he was going to heal and unify our nation. He is failing his first test, and he has not even in office yet.

Sorry about the formatting. There are links to everything underlined below. They won't come through. Not that anyone will care, I suppose. Have more than one or two people here in this forum ever read an opposing viewpoint with an open mind, or do we all read and, based on the poster, immediately reject it and look to rebut or do a 'yeah, well what about?' in order to avoid the topic (perhaps rioting and looting might be bad regardless of who did it, and saying that my guys were no worse than your guys only results in not addressing the problem of rioting and loss of life and property). Just sayin'
It’s worth pausing for a moment to reflect on how radical a figure Trump is. He rejects basic foundations of American government that other presidents, from both parties, have accepted for decades.​
He has tried to reverse an election result and remain in power by persuading local officials to commit fraud. He incited a mob that attacked the Capitol — and killed a police officer — while Congress was meeting to certify the result. Afterward, Trump praised the rioters.
This behavior was consistent with Trump’s entire presidency. He has previously rejected the legitimacy of election results and encouraged his supporters to commit violence. He has tried to undermine Americans’ confidence in the F.B.I., the C.I.A., the military, Justice Department prosecutors, federal judges, the Congressional Budget Office, government scientists, government health officials and more. He has openly used the presidency to enrich his family.​
In the simplest terms, Trump seems to believe a president should be able to do whatever he wants. He does not appear to believe in the system of the government that the Constitution prescribes — a democratic republic.​
Yet there is a significant chance he could win the presidency again, in 2024. He remains popular with many Republican voters,

Just got this from my buddy Frank who is an almost 20-year paratrooper. Joined when we were 30 cuz he loves his country so much.

Thank you Frank for your service and I have been busting my ass for over 30 years trying to support these ideals. That's what I have done. :)

Be well, my friend.


"Throughout my life I have had different views on many different issues people come across during our lives. A lot of my views have changed as I have grown older. Acceptance is one of them! There are many people on my friends list here that I completely disagree with in many views, however that’s what makes us... the USA such a great nation. Diversity and the ability to believe in ourselves! There are a lot of contacts on here of people that I grew up with or served with and have met along my travels. I have only deleted one contact over the years do to our different views. And that sucks from my point of view, because we all have the right to be us. That one contact “in my opinion “ was just way to disrespectful! I was tired of seeing his crap.!!! (And I was probably just being a dick)

One thing that hasn’t changed since I was a little crumb snatcher is my pride, patriotism and love for this great nation!!!!
America.... home of the free!!!

I do not have to like what you have to say.... however many Americans have perished and sacrificed for your right to say it without persecution!!!!
🇺🇸
You do not have to like what I have to say, nor do you have to listen however I have the right to freely speak without persecution.
🇺🇸

If you feel it is not the right of a private entity to refuse service to someone because of the sexual preference but..... it’s ok to stifle, harass and muffle someone because of their political beliefs .... then go f#%k yourself with a cactus!! Because your a commie ba#%*rd

You have the right NOT to bare arms!!!

However it doesn’t supersede my right to arm my self for my personal protection against criminals and tyranny!!

We all do not have to like each other or our elected officials..... but the great thing about America is the elected officials can be voted out. If you are one of the turds that thinks it ok taking a dump on freedom and our Constitution.

Feel free to delete me!!

I’m tired of your hypocrisy, selfishness and socialist crap!

I am the 1% that took an oath.|

I do solemnly swear to support and defend the Constitution of The United States of America

against all enemies!!

What have you done?

Shame on the mess!!

GOD BLESS AMERICA

New York has been ended by the left. Just had a friend that is a Libertarian councilwoman there tell me there is no hope. They are done.

As a Boston sports fan, not sure that breaks my heart, but the greatest city on earth just fell.

And screw you all for calling me melodramatic. Shit is going down and it's at the hands of many of you.

So tell me again how Google ISN'T a news service and DOES require protection from the government...
"Applications will be reviewed by team of 14 jurors from across the academic, media, medical and non-profit sectors, as well as representatives from the World Health Organisation."
What. Why do all these professions need to review this? Medical disciplines alone should be used, and from all spectrums. Everything else is OP/ED.

Just wondering if Trump's initial plan to go to Scotland and his subsequent decision to forego the inauguration is so he'll be out of harm's way if things go sideways.
After he sent his people to the capital, he told them, don't worry, I will be there...he wasn't. So yes.

"According to Beatty, special-interest groups and other “minorities” objected to books that offended them. Soon, books all began to look the same, as writers tried to avoid offending anybody. This was not enough, however, and society as a whole decided to simply burn books rather than permit conflicting opinions."


Sound familiar? This is what the liberals on this board want; Liberals everywhere that aren't really liberals anymore, they are fascists.
