Another proxy for the 2020 election: seeing how many unique, non-bot, American followers Joe Biden can accumulate…


Twitter has decided that while they are turning over the @POTUS and @WhiteHouse accounts to Biden, the account followers will be wiped to zero, that followers will be notified of the change of account and given the choice if they want to continue to follow.

Some media initially falsely claimed this was the president’s decision, but Twitter made it clear that it was theirs and theirs alone.

"Twitter's reluctance to transfer millions of followers from the Trump Administration to the Biden Administration unnecessarily politicizes what otherwise should be a routine transfer of communication from one administration to the next," Biden-Harris transition spokesperson Cameron French told CNN in a statement on Wednesday. <Source>

1. How hard can it be for a candidate who claims he received the most votes in the United States' history to amass millions of followers?

2.  Who believes that Joe Biden is capable of Tweeting or that his Tweets, if he were to Tweet himself, would be any more complete or coherent than his speech.

3. It is likely that some functionary will likely be tweeting pre-packaged propaganda – and possibly continuing anti-Trump rhetoric.

4.  Look for censorship to kill most private Trump's Tweets and Facebook posts. Perhaps it is a propitious time to switch to a free-speech platform like Parler, post your videos to Rumble, and leave Facebook to the older people.

Hero or Zer0? Sidney Powell continues to complain…

Once again, we do not need to hear Sidney Powell complain that the gatekeepers who are protecting President Trump, in what may be his last days in office, are denying her access to President Trump. She is also the only one who seems to be touting the story that Trump may have been considering her as some kind of special counsel to the President or some such nonsense which would allow her automatic White House access.

Sidney Powell Claims White House Aides Preventing Her From Helping Trump

I’ve been blocked from speaking to or communicating with the president since I left the Oval Office on Friday night,” Powell said on Saturday morning, “by apparently everyone around him.”

The attorney also claimed that she was verbally offered the position of “special counsel” by the president to further investigate allegations of election fraud. However, she stated that she could not provide him with paperwork to make her supposed position official due to the interference from White House staffers. “I am not a Robert Mueller-style special counsel,” Powell told Zenger News. “[T]here was a discussion about me being a special White House counsel.”

“It has not come to pass, because it seems it was blocked after Friday night, or undone, or I’m not sure what you’d call it,” she continued. <Source>

My only wish is that, as the days wind down toward the joint session of Congress where the electoral votes will be counted and challenged, Sidney Powell quits her media/fundraising campaign and lets the constitutional process play out without tales of Hugo Chavez and Venezuela.

I am also rapidly losing respect for Lt. General Michael Flynn as he continues to associate himself with Sidney Powell, Lin Wood, and others who are claiming they have evidence of a foreign conspiracy, after being pardoned by President Trump -- and the craziness of his suggestion involving the use of “military capabilities” to “rerun an election” in swing states. The United States military needs to stay out of politics.

No, Flynn’s Martial Law Plot Isn’t Sedition. But It’s Not Necessarily Legal Either.

Last week, Trump’s disgraced former national security adviser, the newly pardoned Michael Flynn, suggested on the right-wing channel Newsmax that the military could be used to rerun the election in four swing states that Trump lost. “People out there talk about martial law like it’s something that we’ve never done,” Flynn said. “Martial law has been instituted 64 times.” <Source>

Michael Flynn urges Trump supporters to protest at state capitals when Congress makes loss official

Michael T. Flynn called Saturday for President Trump‘s supporters to protest in capital cities across the country when Congress meets to make official his recent loss to President-elect Joseph R. Biden. Mr. Flynn, the president’s former national security adviser, said on social media that fellow Trump supporters should protest the recent White House race when Congress counts the Electoral College votes. “On 6 JAN, Patriots across the nation who can’t make it to our Nation’s Capital should respectfully & peacefully protest this fraudulent election at your State’s Capitals,” Mr. Flynn said on Twitter.

Bottom line…

The way we perceive our lives and our country all have changed in the course of 2020—as the global pandemic has upended our values, culture, and country.  As the year draws to a close; we must be vigilant in maintaining our perspective on our Constitution and all of the freedoms it protects. A notice to our government that “We the People” have inalienable rights – not granted or controlled by the federal government – and the Constitution defines the apportionment of control and decision-making between the federal government, states, and “We the People.” A Constitution that limits the federal government's power, not awards it more power, and provides checks and balances within the government to suppress tyranny, corruption, and conclusion.

As we approach a Biden/Harris administration, we need to hold the House and Senate Democrats responsible for what has befallen our nation. At this point in time, I am not sure that the government or the media can tell us the truth. Can we trust Biden and our elected officials vis-à-vis China? Especially if we find out the pandemic was an act of war with the Chinese knowingly sacrificing a large portion of their population to pursue their multi-decadal global ambitions.

We are so screwed.
