Seattle-based Amazon.com, Inc. has asked a federal judge to deny a request to reinstate the cloud-service account for conservative social media network Parler. The company's lawyers on Tuesday claimed Parler shrugged off police violence content on its site before and after the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. The Seattle Times reported that Parler filed a lawsuit Monday against Amazon claiming a breach of contract and antitrust violation after its account was suspended. Attorneys for Amazon said the case was not about suppressing speech but about what they called Parler’s “demonstrated unwillingness” to remove content that threatens public safety. Parler claims Amazon colluded with Twitter to “kill Parler’s business."

Democrats will agree that Jeff Bezos in no way holds too much money and power. Clever how the media outlets channeled Occupy Wall Street and the focus on "the 1%" to demonize WHITE people instead.

Over the years I have spent thousands upon thousands of dollars on Amazon. That ended Monday. Never again. I will use their site to search for what I need and then buy it directly from the source.

Parler is not a right-wing app. But facts don't matter to Democrats and leftist propaganda purveyeors, but I repeat myself. Parler is a platform available to all without the censorship of left-wing apps like Twitter and Facebook.

Amazon has made a claim. The judge should issue a stay order to continue the contracts in place, until the parties resolve their issues in court, or otherwise.

Use Amazon to search for items, but buy elsewhere. I've been doing that for some time now. They don't want us as customers. Many of the merchants are happy to have your business without having to pay the Amazon commission. They'll catch on, eventually, and stop you, but soon none of us will have the money to spend anyway.

Yeah, I think I'm though dealing with Amazon. After, collaborating with nazis is supposed to be a bad thing, isn't it? I'm sure I can find other places to buy what I want, without having to deal with fascists.

The Capitol Hill Riot Was Pelosi’s Fault,
Not Trump’s: Why couldn’t Congress’
private police force of 2,000 protect it from

The Capitol Police have over 2,000 sworn officers. A police force dedicated to protecting Capitol Hill has more personnel in its service than the police forces of most of the country. Congress' private cops are the 19th largest police force in the country. It’s a larger force than the police forces of Atlanta, Baltimore, Denver, or Milwaukee with a massive $460 million budget. It’s the only legislative federal force in the country that is answerable exclusively to Congress. While Democrats advocated defunding the police, their private police force budget shot up from $375 million in 2016 to $460 million in 2020. After the Capitol Hill riot, expect it to go higher. Much higher.

U.S. Space Command is reportedly leaving Colorado Springs for Alabama in what Gov. Jared Polis is calling a "politically motivated" move by outgoing President Trump. Polis in a statement said Trump overruled recommendations to keep Space Command in Colorado Springs, saying the president's decision was "deeply concerning." U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colorado Springs, called the move a "horrendous decision" and saying it will "materially damage our national security." Lamborn vowed to fight the decision and said he sent a letter to President-elect Joe Biden, asking him to reverse the move.

When “All in the Family” debuted Jan. 12, 1971, on CBS, it was exactly the TV show America needed — though America didn’t realize it at the time. Norman Lear and Bud Yorkin had taped two ABC pilots of the scrip t, both starring Carroll O’Connor and Jean Stapleton, starting in 1968. But ABC was reluctant to commit; as Lear told Variety’s Army Archerd, it was “too controversial.” Lear and Yorkin took the show to CBS, which surprisingly bought it.

In the video, which appears to have been deleted, Root said the team’s actions made him feel “kind of disgusted and outraged,” and that the Wildcats had “disrespected the American flag and our national anthem”:

I don't have a problem with arresting people who break the law. I do have a huge problem with selective prosecution and enforcement. When Black Lives Matter mobs besieged Washington D.C., attacked the White House, assaulted Secret Service members, vandalized national monuments, and set a church on fire, the Attorney General had to lean hard just to get the most basic arrests and prosecutions going. (It goes without saying that none of the rioters were fired.) And the media played defense for the rioters and feigned outrage at criminalizing "protest". By September, the DOJ had managed to charge just 300 rioters for taking part in the BLM violence nationwide.

Did the Democrats Steal the Presidential Election? 38 replies

Democrats are making extraordinary efforts to suppress all discussion of whether Joe Biden actually won the 2020 presidential election. In fact, they go even farther: they want to suppress all discussion of the extent to which voter fraud occurred. That naturally makes me want to write about voter fraud, and who really won the election. First, this question: why are the Democrats so hysterical in their insistence that fraud not be mentioned? One reason is obvious. Joe Biden will take office under a cloud, since close to half of all Americans doubt that he really won the election. The Democrats want to stamp out
