  1. Came across this headline [image shared on Gab]:

    Japan is calling on China to stop using the “undignified” test as some passengers said it caused them “psychological distress”.

     

    China allegedly ordered American diplomats to undergo anal tests sparking a row with the State Department.

     

    Beijing has denied the claims but Washington has slammed the tests as “undignified.”

     

    In response, Lu Hongzhou, a Chinese doctor, told state media that travelers could provide a poo sample at the airport instead.

    I haven't been using "social" media for a couple of years, when I realized it was like being back in high school among mean girls. I access certain recommended links, but that's it. I may have to look into Gab down the road, if I feel I can tolerate it. And good on Brave!

     

    As to Mollie's article, I'm glad she called out Allahpundit. He's become so jaded that I immediately take anything he writes with a grain of salt. I still like Ed, Jazz, and a few others on Hot Air, but AP has soiled the place 😂

     

    I have not read the name "Allahpundit" in a long time until Mollie mentioned him. I stopped going to HA several years ago when they switched to Facebook commenting. Many regulars left the place and went to other blogs. I used to read 3-4 blogs before but now I just go to The Last Refuge regularly for political blog and Rantingly for news and quick links to dozens of blogs and conservative Twitter accounts.

     

    Signing up for Gab is easy. All you need is an email address. Wait till next week to sign up though as there's an influx of new users this week after Tim Pool and Elijah Schafer recommended Gab after the CEO's guest appearance on Timcast the other day.

    The fact that he’s doing that is going to cause a lot of people to doubt what Trump said last night, and I don’t blame them. Gab looks like a shit platform. I still can’t search and find Roger Stone’s account, even though I had been able to the past few days. 

     

    He's banned on the big tech social media sites, and only posts on Gab and other alt sites, so I doubt that he has a wide reach. I don't really care what Trump loyalists say or even Trump himself, with regards to petty politics. 

     

    As to searching for Roger Stone on Gab, I found it by just typing "Roger" on the search box (only registered users can use the search function though).

     

    This is his Gab account:

     

    https://gab.com/RogerJStoneJr

     

    The "J" is why it does not come up when searching "roger stone".

     

    I like Gab, I've had my account since the start (2016). It has improved a lot since then, with more features. I particularly like the groups, custom feeds and GabTV. I haven't used the chat feature yet. Soon, it will have "GabPay" (alternative to PayPal).  It owns its servers and does not rely on big tech systems.

     

    Apple and Google banned Gab on their app store but you can still add the Gab app to your phone with simple instructions. And if you use Brave browser, it comes with a Gab app for laptops/desktops.

    Unless I’m missing something, Roger Stone’s Gab account no longer exists. :haha:

     

    He had been posting anti-DeSantis stuff every day for the last week or so. I saw one today where he took aim at a bunch of conservative journalists/bloggers/talk show hosts who support him, even suggesting that one of them cheats on his wife. I guess whoever runs Gab had enough of that. Roger Stone is a nutcase. 

     

    He's still on Gab. Torba is not gonna ban Roger Stone for anti-Desantis stuff. There are way worse posts on Gab than anti-politician opinions. (Gab CEO said on Timcast that "if it's allowed by the First Amendment, it's allowed on Gab.")

     

    I'm on Gab everyday and I didn't see posts about Desantis other than this. Admittedly, I tend to skim through my timeline and the explore page. He does go after people he perceives as being disloyal to Trump.

     

    His recent posts --

    EDIT:

    I scrolled down his page and  I see a couple of posts criticizing Desantis, from a day or so ago. Like I said, he goes hard after people he thinks are disloyal to Trump.

    It’s literally getting to the point where we can’t believe anything the media says. There’s an AP story from yesterday claiming a Florida health official was put on leave for “encouraging employees to get vaccinated.” The reality is there’s an investigation going on, because he illegally accessed medical records of the employees. That’s why he was put on leave. That’s just one example of many. I wonder how many votes are influenced by this garbage. 

     

    Another media story this week that fell apart is the NPR story about Sotomayor and Gorsuch. But even after Fox News debunked the story, CNN and other media outlets continue to report the false story.

     

    https://thepostmillennial.com/npr-report-false-sotomayor-gorsuch

     

    Quote

    NPR published a story on Tuesday alleging that Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch refused to wear a mask despite worries from Justice Sotomayor, who is diabetic. The only problem with the story is that it appears to be untrue.

     

    According to the story, which was written by Nina Totenberg, court sources told the outlet that Sotomayor felt unsafe in close proximity with others, particularly those who are unmasked. Chief Justice John Roberts, understanding that, instructed the other judges and court staffers to mask up. As the report goes, Gorsuch was the only one to reject the instruction.

     

    “They all did. Except Gorsuch, who, as it happens, sits next to Sotomayor on the bench. His continued refusal since then has also meant that Sotomayor has not attended the justices' weekly conference in person, joining instead by telephone,” wrote Totenberg, who goes on to state that Gorsuch’s repeated refusal to mask up has prompted Sotomayor to work remotely, out of the office.

     

    As detailed by Fox News’ Shannon Bream, the story is untrue. A source at the Supreme Court says that there has been no such request from Roberts that the other judges begin wearing masks to arguments. The source further informed the Fox News journalist that Sotomayor made no such requests for Gorsuch to mask up, either.

    “I’m told that given that fact,  there was also no refusal by Justice Gorsuch,” reported Bream. “The justices are all vaccinated and boosted and they do test before taking the bench for arguments.”

    https://thefederalist.com/2022/01/20/why-the-medias-attempt-to-split-desantis-and-trump-isnt-working/

     

     

    A very detailed report by Mollie Hemingway on how the fake news media tried to create a wedge between Trump and Desantis by "reporting" on a "feud" citing anonymous sources and never-Trump pundits. It is worth the read just to see how the corporate media twist things to damage people they don't like and to divide their opponents.

     

    Here's an interesting angle:

     

    Quote

     

    Instead, the Trump team let it be known that they assumed the entire media operation to drive a wedge between the two men was planted by Mitch McConnell, who is extremely close to the Ruthless podcasters.

     

    Sen. Lindsay Graham warned McConnell recently that he needs to make up with Trump, the leader of the Republican Party, if he wants to become majority leader again:

    ...

    It’s fair to say that as successful as Trump was in transforming some of the party’s policies and approaches, the Republican establishment views his presidency as a mere interruption of their control of the party. They don’t particularly like his focus on working-class concerns and away from interventionist foreign policy.

     

    They didn’t disappear, and they are lying in wait to resume the place at the table they believe they’re entitled to. To that end, the continued success of conservative populism is viewed as a threat. They know voters love Trump and DeSantis, so they are hoping to divide one or both men from the Republican electorate.

    I think many of these people just self-identify as one party or the other depending on the status of the country. Early in the year, they claim to be democrats as the dems took over the white house and congress. Then when things went from bad to worse, they distanced themselves from the democrats.

    I really like the new song but I am the only one that hears zero country in it?

     

    I wouldn't say "zero country" because the theme of broken heart is common in country songs. 🙂  But seriously, the sound may not be traditional country, but it's "more country" than some of the songs played on country radio. And it's more listenable than some generic bro-country songs that (used to) dominate country radio. 

     

    For me, whether a song is country or not, does not matter. It's a great song and Danielle's voice sounds great in this song.

    You’re preaching to the choir. 

     

    I wrote the comment for the benefit of everyone reading. I apologize for directly quoting your comment, instead of just picking out the relevant tweets to comment on.

    On a somewhat related matter, the administration basically said to ignore the SCOTUS ruling, encouraging companies to issue their own vaccine mandates. :wacko:

    Not enough. They  still voted to uphold the vaccine mandate for healthcare workers. The court basically said that the federal government can mandate the vaccine if your company receives money from the federal government, individual rights be damned. 

     

    It's not about whether the vaccine is good or bad; it's about freedom of choice. Mandates and coercion take away that choice.

    They didn't repeal Obamacare because they could never offer a reasonable alternative, and lots of regular people would've brought the dogs out if they had.

     

    This is totally different. It completely threatens their livelihoods. 🤑

     Government has no right mandating health insurance, just as it has no  right mandating vaccines.
