Not the type of news I was expecting to hear for a president with just 6 days to go before his first term is officially over, but alas, this is where we are in 2021.
The news broke yesterday afternoon, with Twitter themselves (censorious and biased as they may be) providing a decent summary of what happened:
“The US House of Representatives voted to impeach President Trump on one article of impeachment on Wednesday, charging the outgoing president with inciting the January 6 attack on the US Capitol building. The House vote makes Trump the first president in US history to be impeached twice.
The House voted 232-197 to impeach President Trump. Ten House Republicans broke with their party and voted for impeachment. The Senate will not convene until next week to hold a trial for the president, according to a statement from Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.”
This also marks the first time that a sitting US president will be facing an impeachment trial, assuming all of this actually gets carried out, right after he leaves the office.
In other words… President Trump is being impeached for using words that appear to have incited the violent and reckless actions taken by protestors at Capitol Hill when the Electoral College votes were being certified.
And in case you’re wondering, this impeachment will do a hell of a lot more than prevent Trump from being able to run for President again in 2024. According to MarketWatch, ex-presidents get to live quite a comfortable life once they’re done with their terms…
“According to the National Taxpayers Union, the government spends about $4 million a year in various perks and subsidies for the four living ex-presidents.
Those perks include:
- Pensions equal to the annual pay of a White House cabinet member ($221,400 in 2021)
- Starting six months after leaving office, a governmental allowance for an office, staffing and equipment
- Reimbursed travel expenses of up to $1 million annually for the ex-president and up to two staffers; spouses are allowed to $500,000 for travel
- Lifetime security services provided by the Secret Service
- Health benefits through the government’s Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, but only if they had five years of federal employment (Trump, like Jimmy Carter, would not qualify with only four years of civilian service)
- Funerals with full honors and the option of being buried in Arlington National Cemetery
And once those benefits are taken away from Trump, you best believe there is more carnage to be had.
How about freezing all of his assets that were owned by his company – real estate holdings and such? How about endlessly targeting and harassing his family to the point where they kill themselves or become homeless on the streets?
What about his supporters, along with every single person who worked in his administration over the past four years? With the Democrats seizing full power across the White House, Senate, and the House, they’ll be teaming up with Big Tech, the big banks, and Big Pharma to make them prisoners.
Dark times lie ahead, but hopefully better times come right after.

President Trump’s YouTube Account Gets Suspended!
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and many other social media platforms have taken a stand against Donald Trump and his “encouragement of violence” (quotes to emphasize the obvious sarcasm).
Joining the Big Tech assault against Trump is YouTube, which released this statement on their official Twitter account regarding his channel on the video-sharing platform:
“After review, and in light of concerns about the ongoing potential for violence, we removed new content uploaded to Donald J. Trump’s channel for violating our policies. It now has its 1st strike & is temporarily prevented from uploading new content for a *minimum* of 7 days.
Given the ongoing concerns about violence, we will also be indefinitely disabling comments on President Trump’s channel, as we’ve done to other channels where there are safety concerns found in the comments section.”
But as Nigel Farage said in a recent podcast episode of “The Trump Card,” this decision may haunt Democrats and Big Tech in the near future:
“That is the biggest mistake anybody could make at this moment in time. Donald Trump didn’t radicalize tens of millions of Americans. Tens of millions of Americans had already become upset about the mainstream media, increasingly distrustful of social media, had a loathing for Washington and the way that it operates.
If you take Trump out of the picture then what follows Trump, what follows Trump could be very sinister indeed… So I would urge everybody… they won’t listen, I know, but I would urge the Democrats not to be vindictive, and I would urge social media platforms to think again. Otherwise, I think America could be heading into a very, very bad place.”
Wise words from Farage – those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it over and over again.
Two Messaging Apps That May Be Safe for “Conservatives” Going Forward
It really seems like there isn’t a “safe space” for intelligent right-wingers. And I don’t mean a space where we create an echo chamber and shield ourselves from uncomfortable thoughts we don’t like. I’m referring to a platform where people don’t have to tip-toe around a company’s “Terms of Service” or worry about their political leanings.
Forbes recently published a piece on two communication apps that conservatives, controversial people, and users banned from Twitter and Facebook are turning towards – Signal and Telegram.
Here’s why these apps are starting to grow in popularity right now…
“[Signal] offers the ability to plan and communicate en masse without worrying about the app exerting content-moderation policies or aiding authorities pursuing charges against them. Signal doesn’t appear to have any such policies and doesn’t have access to users’ messages, theoretically making it impossible to cooperate with a police investigation.
Both Signal and Telegram offer one-on-one messaging and group messages, and their encryption technology makes it difficult to track the true extent of any extremist conversations. And both make it possible to join a group through a URL.”
The best part? Both of them are available as FREE downloads on either the iOS or Android operating systems, and you can even use them in your web browser too.
I’ve given both apps a whirl and they are quite robust. They’re the perfect alternative for people who are sick of WhatsApp, or for individuals who feel their time on platforms like Facebook and Twitter is coming to an end really soon.
“No Mask, No Account” at HSBC
In the United Kingdom, censorship and freedom of expression seem to be as inhibited as ever. But yesterday, they went one step too far: Depriving people of the right to hold their OWN MONEY in a bank account!
The Mirror reports on this breaking news development with more details:
“HSBC has issued a warning to customers as retailers step up coronavirus safety measures amid a further 1,243 deaths. The lender – which also owns First Direct and Marks & Spencer bank – said customers who break the law could forfeit their bank account.
Speaking to The Mirror, a spokesman said face masks are mandatory in all branches as per government guidelines. Those who refuse to comply [barring any medical and/or legal exemptions] will be refused service and could have their bank accounts withdrawn.”
Look… it’s one thing if you don’t to allow anybody into your bank branch unless they’re wearing a face mask. That’s all fair and game – it’s your business and you can do what you feel is necessary to protect the safety and well-being of your employees.
But threatening to TERMINATE somebody’s bank account? It’s a pure Orwellian nightmare come true, and one I fear may pop its nasty head into American soil…
“We Will Have to Live With COVID-19 FOREVER,” Says Moderna CEO
Wouldn’t it be awfully convenient if somebody selling an FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine told the world that the virus would be here to stay forever? It sure would, as it would mean they could make billions more per year in perpetuity just by making new “vaccines” for each mutant strain of the virus that comes about.
This is not science fiction – this is straight out of the mouth of Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel, who spoke at the JPMorgan Health Conference taking place yesterday. From CNBC:
“…the coronavirus that has brought world economies to a standstill and overwhelmed hospitals will be around ‘forever’.
Public health officials and infectious disease experts have said there is a high likelihood that COVID-19 will become an endemic disease, meaning it will become present in communities at all times, though likely at lower levels than it is now.
Health officials will have to continuously watch for new variants of the virus, so scientists can produce vaccines to fight them.”
Bastard. I can only imagine all of Big Pharma jumping up and down for joy as they hear those words. They’re all about turning sickness into a business, not about improving the longevity and overall health of people around the world.
They’d better hope and pray their vaccines are as effective in the real world as their clinical data claims them to be, otherwise, they will be in a world of pain for the next few decades.
A HUGE Security Hack of Pfizer’s COVID-19 Vaccine Data!
Speaking of the pharmaceutical industry… I wonder how they would react if data pertaining to what will be their most profitable product of all time got leaked on the Internet.
Computer Weekly claims this has already happened, thanks to efforts from anonymous hackers:
“Data relating to the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, which was stolen in December 2020 following a cyber attack of an unspecified nature against the European Medicines Agency (EMA), has been leaked on the internet.
According to BleepingComputer, the data dump is understood to include screenshots of emails, peer review information, and other documents including PDFs and PowerPoint presentations.
The identity of the cyber criminals involved, and whether or not they are backed by any nation state-linked interests, is unknown at the time of writing.”
Hmm… I wonder what these documents will reveal? Perhaps some high occurrence of side effects that would completely change one’s mind on whether they want to take the COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer or not? Maybe some data manipulation to make the results seem better than they are?
Nobody has actually posted these and I haven’t seen any of these documents, so your guess is as good as mine.
