According to Communications Daily, Stacey Abrams is lobbying to be the next nominee to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Gigi Sohn, the current nominee, has little to no chance of being confirmed in the Senate. Abrams is waiting in the wings for her shot as a D.C. power player. The two time loser in her attempts to become the next governor of Georgia is looking at a seat on the FCC for a job. Can she convince the powers that be that she is the right person?

Why not? James Clyburn had his daughter, Mignon, named to the FCC. He has a knack at filleting the Constitution…

The Left is an insidious parasitic cancer intent on destroying its host. I fear the cells are multiplying faster than we can recover. The Right is badly infected.

What does she know about communications? Can she explain trunking? Can she tell the difference between AM and FM? Does she have even the slightest clue as to how a digital signal works vs an analog signal? Can she even describe the basics of the radio frequency spectrum and who gets what blocks? Maybe she should stick with where her talents lie and get a job at Popeyes.

She lost elections for a reason! I guess she does not see her incompetence! She will get elected or appointed for she has the race and gender that makes her qualified for any job in the liberal world. Experience is not a qualification in the liberal world. As long as the hiring allows for social engineering boxes to be checked you are hired!

I had previously posted that Stacey could make a handsome living on the college/university soeaker's tour. Right now, she is worth 25-50K per speech. (Snookie from Jersey Shore gets 25K) And best of all, Stcey could expense her meals. The despicable british coal miner's daughter, Fiona Hill is on the tour. And if she can do it, anyone can.

Remember the Fairness Doctrine? If she heads up the FCC that will be the first thing she will do; restore it. Her goal, out of sheer pissedness, will be to shut down conservative talk radio which is dominated by conservatives. Implementing the Fairness Doctrine (which is “fair” only to liberals) will be the first order of biz by any liberal running the FCC.

A legal document from Twitter’s legal team denies the partisan work now proven in the exposed documents. While our brave firemen in the media class continue to work diligently to justify not doing their jobs regarding Elon Musk’s internal document release from Twitter, more details are coming to light on the severity of the activity engaged in by the prior management. Earlier today, Bonchie delivered the connection of the FBI with framing the Hunter Biden laptop story. (This echoes Mark Zuckerberg making a similar revelation a few months ago.)

Authorities have announced a mandatory curfew in a North Carolina county where around 40,000 customers lost power after two power substations were damaged by gunfire Saturday night. The county will implement a mandatory curfew from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m., starting Sunday night, Moore County Sheriff Ronnie Fields said at a news conference Sunday. Municipality and county officials "have formed a plan for the night and the next few nights that we may be out of power. It's a very serious situation," Fields said. "So we've come to an agreement to best protect our citizens and to protect the businesses of our county, we're going to implement a curfew tonight."

Elon Musk set the leftwing mob ablaze on Friday evening after he released internal documents detailing Twitter’s collusion with various entities, including the Biden campaign, to censor the Hunter Biden story. Supposedly unbiased reporters gnashed their teeth, apparently horrified at the practice of such transparency. Well, those people better get fitted for a mouthguard, because there’s more fun to be had. According to Musk, who spoke during a Twitter Spaces session on Saturday evening, more smoking guns are on the way. Fox News has the report.

After a series of fiery protests, Iran is reportedly abolishing its morality police and may loosen requirements on wearing hijabs, the country’s attorney general confirmed on Saturday. Attorney General Mohammad Jafar Montazeri said at a press conference that the morality police have “nothing to do with the judiciary and have been abolished.” “Of course, the judiciary continues to monitor behavioral actions,” he added. The Iranian authorities will consider whether to adjust the headscarf rules, the attorney general said in a statement.

Democrat mega-donor Sam Bankman-Fried, whose cryptocurrency platform FTX just collapsed in a hail of fraud allegations, pretty well walks around free to do what he pleases, out in the palmy Bahamas. That raises questions as to what is going on here, why that guy isn't, like Bernie Madoff or the assorted Enron characters, in jail for his misappropriation of customer funds from his cryptocurrency exchange, FTX, through a secret "back-door," to his Alameda Research hedge fund, run by his kinky-weird ex-girlfriend, Caroline Ellison.

“Handled.” That one word, responding to a 2020 demand to censor a list of Twitter users, speaks volumes about the thousands of documents released by Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk, on Friday night. As many of us have long suspected, there were back channels between Twitter and the Biden 2020 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to ban critics or remove negative stories. Those seeking to discuss the scandal were simply “handled,” and nothing else had to be said. Ultimately, the New York Post was suspended from Twitter for reporting on the Hunter Biden laptop scandal. Twitter even blocked users from sharing

Arizona Democratic Governor-Elect Katie Hobbs plans to call a special session to clarify state abortion laws on day one of her administration in January, which could put her in an awkward position from the start. The Democrat is looking to get the 1864 territorial law that only permits abortion in the case of a mother’s health risk repealed, as there are two conflicting laws on the books. The other law is a 15-week ban signed by Republican Gov. Doug Ducey in March that does not include exceptions for rape and incest past that point. Although Hobbs does not support the 15-week ban, she’s operating under the assumption

Is Elon Musk just trolling at this point? That’s a real possibility given who he’s chosen to give access to the now infamous “Twitter files” surrounding the censorship of the Hunter Biden story. It’s not that the reporters involved aren’t great at their jobs. On the contrary, they are excellent choices in that regard. Rather, it’s the hysterical reactions they elicit. First came Matt Taibbi, who spent Friday evening posting revelations from the document dump. Naturally, he was excoriated by his leftwing colleagues who feel Americans are too stupid to have unfettered access to information. Now, Musk is upping the ante, giving Bari Weiss

The Coinbase CEO said this week it’s “baffling to me why he’s not in custody already.” “The DOJ or somebody should be able to make—just based on his public statements, I think there’s a very open and shut case for fraud,” Armstrong said at the a16z crypto Founder Summit on Tuesday. He added, “I’m not an expert on this, but the people I talk to seem to agree on that.” Armstrong also questioned why the media has refrained from calling Bankman-Fried a criminal.

Former President Trump called for the termination of the Constitution’s rules regarding elections to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election following the release of more detailed information about Twitter’s role in suppressing a story about Hunter Biden. “A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution,” Trump said in a Truth Social post. “Our great ‘Founders’ did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!” he continued. Trump’s post comes after the first of the “Twitter files” on “free speech suppression” were posted on Twitter on Friday. The posts focused

Doha, Qatar — The devastating blow that knocked the U.S. men's national team out of the 2022 World Cup was a 21-pass Dutch masterpiece. It was class and ruthlessness personified, clockwork orange from front to back to front. It crushed American optimism that had swelled throughout two weeks in Qatar, and eventually sent the American team trudging toward their traditional exit. It led to Netherlands 3, U.S. 1 here at the Khalifa International Stadium on Saturday, and to a game during which the USMNT crashed head-first into its current ceiling.

Although McCarthy overcame a challenge from Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) and received the House Republican nomination for Speaker of the House by a margin of 188 to 31 votes,

Troy Nehls of Texas tweeted Friday. Earlier Friday, journalist Matt Taibbi released internal Twitter communications that showed Twitter employees took down tweets at the behest of the Biden campaign and the Trump White House. Taibbi noted that because the Twitter staff was overwhelmingly liberal, there were “more channels” to censor speech available to the left.

Hawaii's Mauna Loa volcano is likely going to reach a major highway in the state unimpeded, as it moves within 2.5 miles of traffic on Sunday.  Many people on the Big Island in Hawaii are bracing for major upheaval if lava from Mauna Loa slides across a key road and blocks the quickest route connecting two sides of the island. The molten rock could make the road impassable and force drivers to find alternate coastal routes in the north and south. That could add hours to commute times, doctor's visits, and lorry deliveries.
