In a shocking development in the ongoing censorship debate, two influential Democrat members of the House of Representatives have taken the first steps to challenge the continued availability of conservative channels Newsmax, OANN, and Fox News on mainstream cable, satellite, and streaming television platforms. Multichannel News reported on the story yesterday in an article titled “House Dems Pressure Distributors to Justify Carrying Fox News, Others.” California Democrats Reps. Anna Eshoo and Jerry McNerney have written to a dozen cable, satellite and streaming companies calling on them to better combat disinformation

I guess they're feeling a little drunk with power, and why shouldn't they be? How long will they allow Blaze TV to continue I wonder.

Before Rush plowed the road for conservatives in regular media, I used to listen to patriots on short wave radio pirate stations. I hope they haven't got rid of the transmitters.

Another page out of the democrat playbook. Typical socialist/communist/progressive weapon to silence conservatives. This is the beginning of the end of our freedoms as guaranteed by our Constitution. Guns will be next and then a complete overhaul of our Constitution and Supreme Court. They already have control of our courts, voting, Senate and House. I can't see any way to stop them in the future. It'll take more than prayer. .

I think they are behind the news cycle if they are still targeting Fox. They should just leave them alone and do the old frog in the boiling water thing. Let them continue to appear conservative, while they pump out the 4am propaganda with all the others.

They are in a hurry to push through all of their Hairbrained ideas before the American People turn on them. They will lose big time in 2022 and they know it. Once Republicans take back the House and win a few more Seats in the Senate, Biden will basically be out of control. Democrats know that, so every week we will probably see a new Idiotic Bill thrown out there to take away one more of our Rights. All we can do is fight them in courts until the next election.

Yes, American Thinker has ended comments. I find that I read fewer articles now. It's too frustrating when I feel particularly "sparked". Also, I learned some things from the comments. I guess it's submit or die.

We have a lot of work to do in the months ahead. It's time to make lemonade. We don't need whiners, and squishes. What we need is solid leadership at the state and local level. It all begins at your neighborhood precinct and the local churches in your area are a good place as well. Get involved. Pay attention. The Marxists Dems have a game plan. Where is ours? CPAC will be interesting this week. We are not going to lose this fight. We just have to fight and take no prisoners. There's strength in numbers and we have that. Radio is and always has been our best form of broadcasting. Start listening to it more. The internet is changing everyday. More and more sites a popping up for conservatives. We do have alternatives to FOX, Oan and NewsMax are free online. Necessity is the mother of invention. We will innovate and invent what we need. Remember we are the entrepreneurs and small business working class of this country. Young parents should think about home schooling or find a church that has a school. If they don't propose to start one. This is the real world we are living in and we have to do things differently now. We will win this but we have to shuffle our feet. Let's roll!

Not too long ago I had respect for American Thinker's articles. But the last few months, I have been noticing a lot of conceptual errors.... For Instance: Calling Fox News a conservative TV channel . Although I have been thinking lately that our Democrat Rulers know darn well that Fox News is really on their side, and they are just pretending to hate it to convince the less discerning conservatives to watch it, so that they can get mostly Democrat Propaganda from a source that they believe is on their side.

I don't know. The Supreme Court passing on the Pa. election fraud is one thing, but this strikes right at the heart of the first amendment, and I don't think they can pass on this without bringing on a backlash they wanted to avoid with the election fraud cases.

Sometimes, Tucker Carlson shows a real touch of genius. That was the case with his suggestion for true societal change in America. It’s time, he said, for America’s elite educational institutions (the Ivy Leagues and other high-ranking colleges and universities) to stop promoting generational affluence. They need to jettison their rich student body and, in the future, admit only disadvantaged students. Tucker opened his proposal by noting that we’re currently experiencing a non-traditional revolution in which the ruling class is attacking and destroying the working and middle classes.

There is one major lesson that conservatives and frankly all Americans must learn: never accept at face value the reporting of any news event. By foolishly acquiescing to the version of a story put out by the denizens of the mainstream media, the citizenry allows the ruling oligarchy to set the narrative and exploit the inevitably fabricated incidents that further their cause. In place of “mainstream media,” they ought to be called Gaslight Media, for their role is not to report the truth, but rather to manipulate the public into a mental state conducive to obedience.

Hunter Biden had a controversial affair with his brother Beau's grieving widow Hallie, while exchanging raunchy texts, 'partying', and even renting a house with her sister, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal. Hallie Biden's older sister, Elizabeth Secundy, who was recently separated from her husband of 15 years, referred to Hunter as her 'prince' and told him she loved him, in a series of text messages dating back to 2016. The pair's relationship was revealed in files and emails recovered from Hunter's laptop - the contents of which became public last year after it was abandoned at a Delaware computer shop.

Buffalo's schools are expected to follow lesson plans devised by Fatima Morrell, the associate superintendent for Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Initiatives. Morrell's lesson plans, obtained by City Journal, teach pupils and their teachers how to be, in her words, more 'woke.'

Dozens of House Democrats are calling on President Biden to relinquish sole control over the country’s nuclear arsenal and the ability to launch a strike using those weapons. Politico reports that the Democrats, led by Rep. Jimmy Panetta (CA) and Rep. Ted Lieu (CA), wrote a letter warning that “vesting one person” with the authority to initiate a nuclear war “entails real risks.” “While any president would presumably consult with advisors before ordering a nuclear attack, there is no requirement to do so,” the letter explains.

On paper, the Democrats have a tenuous hold on power in Washington. Their president is a cipher with severely diminished mental capacities, the Senate is a 50-50 tie, and they hold the narrowest House majority in decades. Nevertheless, the Democrats see what could be a once in a lifetime opportunity, and are pressing forward with their most radical agenda since they seceded in 1861. Among other things, the Democrats are trying to repeal, in effect, the First Amendment, by barring conservative speech–or, rather, speech that is not consistently left-wing–from the public square. We have seen this in the moves against conservatives and other independent voices by

His newest cancellation simply does not make sense.

Though the program seems to be something everyone should support, it clearly isn’t. Why would anyone want sex offenders to remain in the country?
