Five ways Google is trying to kill Christmas

Original Article

The search engine giant currently features a Doodle adorned with Christmasy lights in homage to December holidays, but goes to considerable lengths to minimize the month’s signature celebration. Click on the image at Google.com and up pops “December global holidays” content that downplays and diverts readers from the true meaning of Christmas, the world’s most popular holiday. First, it shares a default page from worldstrides.com that dryly mentions Christmas and gives equal weight to a list of contrived and obscure celebrations such as Kwanzaa and Boxing Day (sorry, Mum and Canada). As for Christmas, says it is “now mostly celebrated as a cultural holiday rather than a religious one.”

I "googled" for the last time several years ago when the Doodle for Easter Sunday honored Che Guevara.

I had a recent dilemma when I began switching my mom's utility bills to auto pay. The water utility is city owned and required me to use Google Chrome to set up the auto pay account. I agonized over it but downloaded Chrome, did the deed and, after confirmation, removed the Chrome browser; but,I am sure it wasn't completely eliminated and is lurking in the background - spying.Bastritches.

Ten congressional candidates from California filed a civil action in federal court this week, charging Gov. Gavin Newsom with overseeing an unconstitutional and fraudulent November general election. The complaint, which includes hundreds of sworn eyewitness reports of election code violations, irregularities and fraud, seeks to decertify the 55 electoral votes that the state awarded to Joe Biden. The 44-page legal filing contends that the state election practices promoted the casting of illegal and unreliable ballots, thereby violating the Fourteenth Amendment. Other named defendants include California Attorney General Xavier Becerra and California Secretary of State Alex Padilla.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) said late on Monday night that Antifa attacked his home in Washington, D.C., and threatened his wife and newborn baby. “Tonight while I was in Missouri, Antifa s*****gs came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter, who can’t travel,” Hawley wrote on Twitter. “They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door. Let me be clear: My family & I will not be intimidated by left-wing violence.” Hawley said that the perpetrators were “screaming threats through bullhorns, vandalizing property, pounding on the doors of homes and terrorizing innocent people and children.” (Tweet)

President-elect Joe Biden called Wednesday for the restoration of “just simple decency” as a mob incited by his predecessor stormed the U.S. Capitol and delayed Congress from certifying the results of November's election in which Biden won the White House. Biden had planned to deliver a speech focused on how to revive an economy and provide financial relief for small business owners reeling from the coronavirus pandemic from his native Delaware. But shortly before he was to begin speaking, demonstrators broke into the capital, reaching as far as the House floor. The building was locked down and police with guns drawn moved in

Washington—Rioters vandalized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s suite of offices in the US Capitol on Wednesday, flipping tables and rummaging through desks after a large mob of Trump supporters stormed the building. One man was photographed reclining with his feet on a desk in Pelosi’s office while other men in “Make America Great Again” hats horsed around with desk phones and streamed the incident. Another demonstrator was seen grinning as he walked away with Pelosi’s podium as unprecedented scenes of looting and chaos engulfed the Capitol after rioters overpowered police and trapped lawmakers in the Senate and House of Representatives chamber, leading to a tense armed standoff.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell delivered a blistering takedown of some Republicans’ first objection to the Electoral College vote, saying the presidential outcome was “not unusually close” and warning the effort to overturn the result could send the country into a “death spiral". “Nothing before us proves illegality anywhere near the massive scale that would have tipped the entire election. Nor can public doubt alone justify a radical break when the doubt itself was incited without any evidence,” the Kentucky Republican said as the Senate convened to hear an objection to Mr Biden’s victory in Arizona. “The Constitution gives us here in Congress a limited role.

Vice President Mike Pence announced Wednesday afternoon that he would not accede to President Trump’s demand that he reject slates of electors submitted by battleground states where the president has alleged massive fraud. “It’s is my considered judgment that my oath to support and defend the Constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not.”

As I write this, it appears that Raphael Warnock, an anti-American, pro-Marxist, anti-Semitic, anti-white Democrat who has credible accusations of spousal and child abuse against him, won. Meanwhile, with Perdue and Ossoff tied, counting has stopped in Chatham County. We know what that means. They’re finding votes for Ossoff, a leftist nonentity. As matters now stand, despite Trump’s overwhelming coattails on down-ballot votes across America, Biden is poised to take the White House, the Democrats will control the Senate, and Nancy Pelosi and her squad are the Queen and princesses of the House. We are facing a hard-left, one-party federal government. However, millions of patriots are converging on Washington, D.C.

Anthony Fauci, America's top infectious disease specialist, has told Newsweek he believes President-elect Joe Biden will fulfill his promise to get 100 million COVID vaccines administered in his first 100 days in office. His forecast comes amid a slower than expected vaccine roll-out in the U.S. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and incoming chief medical advisor to the Biden administration, said: "I think that's possible, it's very possible to do that. I think you've got to be careful about judging the long-range by what's happened in the first couple of weeks." Operation Warp

Conservative media members reacted with anger and disgust on Wednesday to scenes of violent protesters storming the U.S. Capitol building and halting Electoral College certification proceedings. Following repeated claims by President Trump that the election was stolen from him and his supporters, Congress was forced into lockdown and lawmakers were evacuated as angry protesters stormed Capitol Hill, smashed windows, and breached the Capitol building. One woman was reportedly shot by Capitol police amid the chaos. The protesters came from a rally outside the White House where Trump spoke and repeated his false claims that he had truly won the presidential election.

On Tuesday, RINO Senator Mitt Romney boarded a flight to Washington D.C. and was met by a bunch of angry Trump supporters who were on their way to the "Stop the Steal" rally in D.C. on January 6th. Thousands and thousands of Trump supporters spent their day traveling on Tuesday to support President Donald Trump in D.C. on Wednesday. Many flights were packed completely with Trump supporters including the one Romney got on."TRAITOR, TRAITOR, TRAITOR," yelled the entire flight of Trump supporters as Romney boarded the plane.“We want to know your connection to Burisma and Joe Biden, Mitt Romney,” one woman yelled. “You don’t listen to your constituents!”WATCH:
