CENSORSHIP SHOCKER: YouTube Deletes All Copies of President Trump’s CPAC Speech, Suspends RSBN for 2 Weeks for Carrying It from -100PercentFedUp.com » Feed by Ulysses S. Tennyson Thu Mar 04 2021 21:28:53 The American people hate Joe Biden. He receives almost no viewership on his videos or events, is the most disliked president in YouTube history, and has the lowest transparency of any president in recent history. He also has trouble remembering what he is doing. Joe Biden is such a senile authoritarian puppet, that the media eerily cut off the video feed on him when he accidently attempts to speak for himself. The man often appears to no longer have a mind or any agency of his own. President Donald Trump on the other hand is beloved by the majority of this country. That is why when Trump gave a speech at CPAC on Sunday, it garnered over 30 million views. Big Tech and the establishment who are in the tank for Biden and globalism know this is a huge problem for them. They expected that they crushed Trump and his supporters when they erroneously blamed them the unrest at the capitol on January 6th and allegedly stole the election from him. However, his political movement has only seemed to swell in popularity. So, now they have to take even more dystopian Huxleyan measures to try to stamp out his message and silence his supporters. To that end, YouTube has deleted all copies of President Trump’s speech to CPAC from every source we could think of. It also suspended Right Side Broadcasting Network (RSBN) for two weeks as punishment for live streaming the well-received and optimistic speech. Trump’s speech focused primarily on loving each other, American exceptionalism, and the many deleterious things Joe Biden has already done in just one month since his inauguration. Trump also reiterated his belief the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him stating, quipping “Who knows! I might even decide to beat them for a third time!” The Gateway Pundit Reports: YouTube took down videos from mainstream outlets including the U.K. Independent which had over one million views as well as Fox, Fox Business, ABC News and the U.K. Sun. A search of YouTube that earlier this week showed several channels with archived live streams of the speech now shows all archived live streams have been taken down. Trump’s speech was wildly popular, with upward of over 30 million streaming views across several platforms being reported. CNN reported about 5.8 million viewers watched the speech on cable TV’s Fox News Channel and another 1.5 million watched on Newsmax, making Trump’s speech the most watched on all of cable for February and besting the Golden Globes awards show on broadcast over the air on NBC later Sunday that was watched by 6.9 million viewers. TGP reported Monday on some of the view counts of Trump’s speech on YouTube: Right Side Broadcasting 3.7 million; The Independent 1,000,000; The Hill 906,000; Reuters: 902,000; News Now 818,000; ABC Australia 352,000; SKY News 222,000; ABC News 208,000;FOX 35 Orlando 50,000. RSBN announced the suspension Thursday, noting they had foretold the action by YouTube after they ran Trump’s speech on Sunday, “President Trump talked about election fraud. That’s a big no-no on some platforms we stream to. We try to play by the rules, but we will not censor President Trump. We’re not going to remove or edit this video. Just so we’re all clear- if it gets removed, we didn’t do it.” “NEW: RSBN has been suspended from YouTube for two weeks because of the Trump #CPAC2021 speech, which violated their guidelines on election misinformation. The video was approaching 4 million views. They have also removed it from their platform.” Before: After: The Gateway Pundit lists several similar occurrences of censorship in their article, here. C-SPAN, which has apparently not been entirely taken over by the Maoists of Big Tech, still has Trump’s speech in full online.

Biden Is Treated Like A Child...Pelosi Says Her Grandchildren Are “Longtime Friends Of Joe Biden” And They Don’t Say “Open Sesame,” They Say “Open Biden” from -100PercentFedUp.com » Feed by Allan Miller Fri Mar 05 2021 02:21:51 Nancy Pelosi introduced Joe Biden at the House Democrats’ 2021 Democratic Issues Conference on Wednesday… During the Speaker’s remarks, after being introduced by Congresswoman Angie Craig of Minnesota, she told a strange story about her grandchildren and Joe Biden. Pelosi remarked that her 4 and 5-year-old grandsons were “longtime friends of Joe Biden” and that they “love him.” Pelosi said she was taking the children to see Biden at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2013 and “they were so excited to see him because they’d heard so much about him from their cousins.” WATCH: She also described how the children have a ‘magic word’ and it is “Open Biden.” Full remarks below: My husband, Paul always says, ‘I just wonder how long into a speech it will be before Nancy starts talking about her grandchildren.’ Our grandchildren, my grandchildren, have for many, many years, been longtime friends of Joe Biden. They have a range in age, but all of them love Joe Biden. But let me tell you one story, I think was like 2013, four and five year old, two of mine, Paul and Thomas. We were at an event, the DCCC in New York, and Joe Biden was the keynote speaker. They were so excited to see him because they’d heard so much about him from their cousins. And they met him they talked about pets and things like that. And afterward, after the luncheon was over, I took them got candy. Don’t tell their mom. I took them for candy at a place, Dylan’s in New York, where they have sort of like swinging doors. You have to get through the doors from one part of the store to the next. So, here they are, the place is packed and jammed. Kids are making all this noise over there on the side. And all of a sudden, I hear them pronounce, ‘In order to open these doors, we do not say open sesame, we say “Open Biden.” That’s our magic word.’ Open Biden? I love it. Now more than ever, we need a battle-tested, forward-looking leader who will fight For The People, a President with the values, experience and the strategic thinking to bring our nation together and to build a better, fairer world for our children. As President, he is taking us to new heights of inclusion in the success of America. President Biden is a leader who is the personification of hope and courage, values, authenticity and integrity. Joe Biden is President – as President and with Democratic Majorities in the House and Senate, we will deliver bold progress For The People. And now it is my privilege to present the [46th] President of the United States, as my children – grandchildren would say, ‘Open Biden,’ Mr. President. Following the conference, President Biden said he was “happy to take questions” but White House staffers abruptly ended the live feed, as previously reported by 100% FED Up. WATCH: The virtual event included Nancy Pelosi and other key Democrats for a discussion on COVID and other topics. As soon as Biden finished his comments by asking Democrats to help “restore faith in government,” he said he would take questions if that’s what he’s “supposed to do.” Biden addressed Nancy Pelosi, referring to her as “Nance”: “I’d be happy to take questions if that’s what I’m supposed to do, Nance. Whatever you want me to do.” This is the worst-kept secret in DC. We’re sure Biden’s handlers will think of something.

Joy Reid, Fake Republicans Peddle Lies About Fox News, GOP Obsessing Over Cancel Culture Curtis Houck March 4th, 2021 11:39 PM Thursday’s ReidOut featured more radicalizing rhetoric meant to send MSNBC viewers into a fury of hatred against anyone on the right, falsely claiming the Fox News Channel and the GOP are exclusively obsessed with cancel culture and controversies surrounding Mr. Potato Head and Dr. Seuss. Host Joy Reid, Democratic strategist Aisha Mills, and fake Republicans Michael Steele and Charlie Sykes spent nearly 20 minutes claiming Republicans were grifters, exist to “make sure that Americans are a bit deaf, dumb, and blind to what government is supposed to do,” and feel pleasure from the sight of sick and dying Americans from coronavirus. Reid started constructing what would become a strawman the size of a skyscraper with the notion that the Democratic Party was the only party that exists “to write bills, to pass laws, normal stuff” while the “purely performative” Republicans were “acting out the worst insecurities and fears and paranoids of the loudest parts of their voting base” while opposing aid for struggling Americans and “reforming policing in America.” After airing a clip of Congressman Alex Mooney (R-WV) defending Dr. Seuss, Reid insisted “this very unserious political party” has “no agenda other than opposing anything the Democrats do and trying to trip up people of color and anyone else who doesn't tend to vote Republican on their way to the ballot box so they can stay in power to do nothing but wage meaningless culture wars over supposedly not being able to say Merry Christmas.” Reid took aim at Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), calling him the “conspiracy senator from Wisconsin, way of Moscow” and declared this Putin puppet’s latest act of villainy was intentionally keeping help from “Americans who are struggling to survive a year-long pandemic by forcing a full reading of the bill.” Huh? Anyway, the panel segment began with Reid’s fervent endorsement of The Bulwark as a true voice of conservative policy while its thrice-married editor-at-large and conservative-turned-progressive Charlie Sykes ironically called Republicans the side that lacks ethics, focus, and substance: REID: The Bulwark is all about sort of policy ideas. It’s all about reconstructing what conservatism, what the — you know, politics’s supposed to mean. It strikes me that all of the Republican Party, at this stage in its life, is just a theatrical enterprise about you can't say Merry Christmas when you can totally say Merry Christmas, about Mr. Potato head needing to have a gender, it is not a living thing. It's a literal potato with, like, ears stuck on it. But these things seem stupid, but I am shocked that they’ve been able to get away with this kind of theatre for so long. SYKES: Well, you’re — you're right and this is what’s extraordinary, how the sideshow has become the main event for a party that used to say we're the party of ideas. We used to have debates about the stimulus package or about health care. When’s the last time, by the way, you heard a Republican on the floor of Congress talking about how do we reform access to health care? You know, it was perhaps some substantive policy issue. But this, I think, is a sign of the dominance of the entertainment wing of the Republican Party where you have more and more people who come to Congress and they're job is not to sit in a room and write legislation and solve social problems or even talk about the problems that real Americans face. It is to build followers on social media. It is to be famous for being famous. They are celebrities. So, you have people like Madison Cawthorn that, you know, puts together a staff that's all communications as opposed to legislation because they’re not in that business at all. But what you're seeing in the Republican Party is in the middle of an economic crisis and a COVID crisis, they are all culture war all the time. And you know, frankly, think about it. It's March 4th, 2021. Half a million Americans have died and our political dialogue is consumed with the gender of Mr. Potato Head and Dr. Seuss who wasn't really a doctor. The irony meter quickly shattered into a million pieces when Steele spun a web of ironic stupidity about the GOP as grifters despite the fact that he’s spent nearly a decade simping on MSNBC, left the RNC with $23 million in debt, and participated in the Lincoln Project racket: [I]t's not just the entertainment portion of the program that we're seeing. It is the grifting portion of the program that we're also witnessing because from that entertainment comes go-gobs of cash. Everybody's making some money....So, the reality for the party and it’s something I witnessed when I was there which is why the folks on K Street hated my guts because I was cutting off the cash. I wasn't spending money they way they wanted to spend. I was putting it in the states to actually win campaigns (....) And so the reality of is as long as the cash is flowing and I can go out there and say something ugly about Obama or Biden or both and it’s going to, you know, cha-ching my coffers, I’m doing it. And that's not what a political party should be about today particularly in the age of COVID. Reid then brought up Fox News to back up her mountain of fake news, insisting that 33 segments since Monday on Dr. Seuss meant it was top of mind for the right and “trying to pretend they don't know why they have a problem with” racism. While Mills had to wait 12 minutes to chime in, she made the most of it, spewing more venom about how the GOP’s sole focus on Dr. Seuss has been “to essentially dumbify this American public” and keep them as “deaf, dumb, and blind” as possible from the government’s heart to shepherd you through life. This, she argued, is all “about eroding civics” and “eroding democracy.” Continuing to masquerade as sober adults, the four jesters took matters to a whole new (and worse) level when Reid whipped out a Mrs. Potato Head while Reid and Sykes claimed every single Republican cares more about a toy than health care, the minimum wage, and vaccines (click “expand, emphasis mine”): REID: I mean, look, here — here’s Mrs. Potato Head. I brought Mrs. Potato Head. I went and got her today. Does she matter in your life right now? Is this what's important to you right now that she is able to be a girl Mrs. Potato Head? I mean, I could take her nose or her mouth off and then she would just be a potato. This — this is not — this is what they're talking about. I mean, Charlie, this is more important to them than health care. SYKES: It does feel like we’re living in a movie version of idiocracy. By way, at least she’s anatomically correct, I think, in that — in that version. But you know, so you mentioned virtue signaling. If in fact, what's wrong with signaling virtues at a certain point? Virtues are supposed to be signaled but what they are is this perpetual outrage machine. And when you have run out of things to be genuine outraged about, you're outraged by Mr. Potato Head or Mr. — or Dr. Seuss. I mean, this is one of things — I’m sorry, it feels — you can't make this up. You can't make this up. You can’t make this up that you have members of Congress standing on the floor in the midst of all of this and they could talk about the minimum wage. They could talk about putting money, you know, how we — how do we accelerate the vaccines and instead, we're talking about how we can make people mad at one another and, to Aisha’s point, you know, it's not just dumbing it down. It's a way of basically saying these other people don't share your values. They are so — they are out to get you. They hate you. They’re going to destroy everything good and beautiful and, apparently, the symbol of good and beautiful today is you're holding in your hand that we must fight. [PANEL LAUGHS] We must fight for — REID: To make sure — SYKES: — Mr. and — REID: — yep. SYKES: — Mrs. Potato Head. The — the gender they’re appropriating — REID: There has to be gender. She got a cute little handbag. But, you know, Michael, it seems ridiculous for me to be sitting right here on a prime time news show with a Mrs. Potato Head next to me. But this is what they're doing on the right. This is the equivalent of what Republican governance has become. Hanging around with a potato and making sure that the potato is a grown little boy because God made potato and potato, not potato and potato. That is literally the Republican platform at this moment. STEELE: So, if I had known Mrs. Potato Head would show up while Mr. Potato Head was out, I would have brought my spud who’s in my closet over here, in my — in my pantry. And, you know, then that could have been an interesting program between Spud and Mrs. Potato Head. REID: If you try to turn Mrs. Potato Head into french fries, Michael Steele — STEELE [LAUGHS]: Just saying. REID: — don’t try it. STEELE [LAUGHS]: Just saying. REID: Got to do it. STEELE: But here’s the — MILLS: What’s so — REID: Are you cancelling her? SYKES: Freedom fries. Mills interjected amidst playtime to further radicalize viewers to hate their family members and neighbors, insisting that right-leaning Americans “have no expectation that government is even designed to solve problems,” and thus shrug at the sight of Americans dying from COVID or struggling to pay their mortgages. Steele had the last word, mocking his supposed party for having bemoaned about “los[ing] the culture war” on issues like abortion, families, and gay marriage and having, in response to that, pivoted to “animating principles” lamenting Americans don’t want a “white picket fence family.” Instead, Steele said the right had resorted to “aggrandiz[ing] it and you can raise money off of it and that’s — that’s ugly part of all of this.” Speaking of ugly, someone should grill Steele about if and when he learned that the Lincoln Project had become a front for John Weaver to groom young men for sex.

Kamala Harris receives crash course in international diplomacy from Nikkei Asian Review Fri Mar 05 2021 08:09:34 WASHINGTON -- U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris has quickly taken on an active role in diplomacy for President Joe Biden's administration, building up her experience in foreign relations. Harris spoke by phone Tuesday with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, discussing the bilateral alliance and their wider Indo-Pacific policy. She also held teleconferences with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron in February. The vice president also participated when Biden held his first bilateral virtual summit last month, with Trudeau as the counterpart. When Biden visited the State Department in early February to give his first foreign policy speech and address department personnel, Harris also delivered remarks to staffers. "The world is counting on us," she said. "And we as a nation must show both our allies and our adversaries that America will deliver." Harris attends when Biden receives daily intelligence briefings, and she holds regular lunches with Secretary of State Antony Blinken. Diplomatic veterans serve as her closest advisers. The vice president has a thin resume in international relations compared with Biden. Harris was serving her first term as senator when she joined Biden's presidential ticket. Before her stint in Washington, Harris served as California's attorney general. "I do think that President Biden sees her as a partner," said Lara Brown, associate professor at George Washington University. "I think he also sees her as a mentee." Vice President Kamala Harris walks through the halls of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building of the White House en route to record a video message. (Photo courtesy of the White House) As vice president, Harris automatically becomes a leading contender to succeed Biden, who is now 78 and may decide against seeking a second term in 2024. Biden should focus on domestic crises, such as controlling the pandemic and restarting economic policy, Brown said. Harris "really does need to have an introduction to the world stage so she can be kind of [Biden's] eyes and ears in the world, while he is focused on the United States," she said. Harris continues a trend of U.S. vice presidents taking foreign policy roles in recent administrations. Biden, as President Barack Obama's vice president, was involved in setting Iraq policy, among other areas. "Biden, you know, is not a young man, and so there are good reasons why somebody younger and maybe a little more energetic is able to travel and represent him to a variety of foreign partners," said Colin Dueck, a professor at George Mason University. "She is youthful, she's sort of the face of the future of the Democratic Party right now. She's good at this sort of thing, so she can be a spokesperson on foreign policy for the Biden administration." What areas Harris will focus on remain to be seen, but broadcaster CBS reports that she has described cybersecurity, technology and international health as priorities. Building her foreign policy credentials could see her walk a fine line on topics that divide her party's base. If Harris intends a presidential run, she will "want to make sure she hasn't put a foot wrong on issues that are of concern to the Democratic Party's voters," Dueck said.

Mills interjected amidst playtime to further radicalize viewers to hate their family members and neighbors, insisting that right-leaning Americans “have no expectation that government is even designed to solve problems,” and thus shrug at the sight of Americans dying from COVID or struggling to pay their mortgages. Steele had the last word, mocking his supposed party for having bemoaned about “los[ing] the culture war” on issues like abortion, families, and gay marriage and having, in response to that, pivoted to “animating principles” lamenting Americans don’t want a “white picket fence family.” Instead, Steele said the right had resorted to “aggrandiz[ing] it and you can raise money off of it and that’s — that’s ugly part of all of this.” Speaking of ugly, someone should grill Steele about if and when he learned that the Lincoln Project had become a front for John Weaver to groom young men for sex.

Kamala Harris receives crash course in international diplomacy from Nikkei Asian Review Fri Mar 05 2021 08:09:34 WASHINGTON -- U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris has quickly taken on an active role in diplomacy for President Joe Biden's administration, building up her experience in foreign relations. Harris spoke by phone Tuesday with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, discussing the bilateral alliance and their wider Indo-Pacific policy. She also held teleconferences with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron in February. The vice president also participated when Biden held his first bilateral virtual summit last month, with Trudeau as the counterpart. When Biden visited the State Department in early February to give his first foreign policy speech and address department personnel, Harris also delivered remarks to staffers. "The world is counting on us," she said. "And we as a nation must show both our allies and our adversaries that America will deliver." Harris attends when Biden receives daily intelligence briefings, and she holds regular lunches with Secretary of State Antony Blinken. Diplomatic veterans serve as her closest advisers. The vice president has a thin resume in international relations compared with Biden. Harris was serving her first term as senator when she joined Biden's presidential ticket. Before her stint in Washington, Harris served as California's attorney general. "I do think that President Biden sees her as a partner," said Lara Brown, associate professor at George Washington University. "I think he also sees her as a mentee."

Biden should focus on domestic crises, such as controlling the pandemic and restarting economic policy, Brown said. Harris "really does need to have an introduction to the world stage so she can be kind of [Biden's] eyes and ears in the world, while he is focused on the United States," she said. Harris continues a trend of U.S. vice presidents taking foreign policy roles in recent administrations. Biden, as President Barack Obama's vice president, was involved in setting Iraq policy, among other areas. "Biden, you know, is not a young man, and so there are good reasons why somebody younger and maybe a little more energetic is able to travel and represent him to a variety of foreign partners," said Colin Dueck, a professor at George Mason University. "She is youthful, she's sort of the face of the future of the Democratic Party right now. She's good at this sort of thing, so she can be a spokesperson on foreign policy for the Biden administration." What areas Harris will focus on remain to be seen, but broadcaster CBS reports that she has described cybersecurity, technology and international health as priorities. Building her foreign policy credentials could see her walk a fine line on topics that divide her party's base. If Harris intends a presidential run, she will "want to make sure she hasn't put a foot wrong on issues that are of concern to the Democratic Party's voters," Dueck said.
