Meet Jason Mariner Convicted Felon and GOP MAGA Cultist Who Claims Election Fraud In 59-Point Special Election Loss In Florida

Meet Jason Mariner Convicted Felon and GOP MAGA Cultist Who Claims Election Fraud In 59-Point Special Election Loss In Florida

Democrats heavily outnumbered Republicans in the South Florida district that had a SPECIAL ELECTION last week for District 20 House Rep in Florida— Nobody. I mean NOBODY expected a close race and it wasn’t. Democrat Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick won the special election with 79 percent of the vote.

But wait! GOP MAGA Cultist opponent Jason Mariner the representative-elect’s Republican rival, who hedged on conceding the race is calling it calling it. You guessed it. Election Fraud.

 The CBS affiliate in Miami reported, the unusual part of this story was the response to the outcome from the representative-elect’s Republican rival, who hedged on conceding the race. “Now they called the race, I did not win, so they say, but that does not mean that they lost either, it does not mean that we lost,” said Republican Jason Mariner. Several hours before the polls even closed, Mariner filed a lawsuit alleging there is a problem with the ballots in Palm Beach and Broward Counties.

Jason Mariner is a convicted felon, praised the Jan. 6 rioters who attacked the Capitol, and has at least one Confederate flag tattoo on his arm. In mid-December 2011, Mariner broke into a Delray Beach property and stole approximately $20,000 worth of paintings by the legendary Florida Highwaymen, and other local painter. Mariner took the stolen paintings to a secondhand shop and sold many for a total of $400

What a maroon.

Federal Judge Rules Against LGBT YouTuber Content Creators In 'Censorship' Lawsuit

Federal Judge Rules Against LGBT YouTuber Content Creators In ‘Censorship’ Lawsuit

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender YouTube content creators who said the company violated their First Amendment rights by “censoring” their clips.

In a decision issued Wednesday, U.S. District Court Magistrate Virginia DeMarchi in San Jose ruled that Google and YouTube are “private entities,” as opposed to government officials, and therefore are not bound by the First Amendment’s prohibition against restricting speech. “Plaintiffs do not state a claim … for violation of the First Amendment because defendants are not state actors,” – Judge Virginia DeMarchi

MediaPost

The lawsuit brought by the  Divino Group — which distributes GNews! via YouTube — and other LGBT content creators. claimed that YouTube “censored” them by preventing ads from running in some of their videos, placing age restrictions on clips, and tagging other clips with a “restricted mode” aka “mature” audiences designation.

Judge DeMarchi dismissed the claim that Google violated the users’ free speech rights with prejudice — meaning that Divino and the others can’t redraft their complaint and bring that claim again citing a ruling that a federal appellate court sided with Google last year, in a similar lawsuit brought by the anti-LGBT Prager University.

GOP’s Jim Jordan Refuses To Cooperate With Jan 6. Riot Committee.

Gee. I wonder why?

Ohio congressman Jim Jordan has said he won’t voluntarily cooperate with the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol, describing the “Democrat obsession” as the latest of the “partisan witch hunts.”

The Republican, who represents Ohio’s 4th congressional district, wrote in a letter to committee chair rep. Bennie Thompson that the inquiry into the January 6 riot amounts to an “unprecedented and inappropriate demand to examine the basis for a colleague’s decision on a particular matter pending” before the House of Representatives

Miss Lindsey Graham Has The Vapors Over Biden’s Speech: “Brazen Politicization” Fiddle Dee Dee

Miss Lindsey Graham Has The Vapors Over Biden’s Speech: “Brazen Politicization” Fiddle Dee Dee

Well the bitch, well the bitch, well the bitch is back!

Via Mediaite:

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) wasted no time ripping Joe Biden for his speech remembering Jan. 6, accusing the president of “brazen politicization.” Graham disagreed with the tenor of Biden’s speech, which he blasted in a tweet that somehow invoked the Taliban.

This, of course, is very different from what Graham said a year ago [clip below] on the day of the Capitol riot. The senator claimed that he was done with Trump, moments after the extraordinary violence and mayhem of that day, as Congress was about to certify the former president’s defeat.

Miss Graham: The domestic terrorist attack a year ago was “politicized” the moment it happened, so pull your petticoats out of your ass and bless your poor little non-existent heart.

American Corporations EXPOSED Donating To GOP “Sedition Caucus”: Boeing, UPS, Merck, J&J, More Listed

American Corporations EXPOSED Donating To GOP “Sedition Caucus”: Boeing, UPS, Merck, J&J, More Listed

This should be bombshell that rocks the country and the business world. But unless WE do something it probably won’t.

The flow of money from corporate PACs and industry groups to political committees allied with the Sedition Caucus started just days after the insurrection, and within the first few months after the deadly attack, their total contributions had already climbed into the millions of dollars.

The recipients in these tallies include the campaigns and leadership PACs of the 147 members of Congress who voted not to certify the 2020 election results, as well as the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), the two main Republican party committees supporting these members.

The CREW

The list is long and while no one is exactly sure how much money has been donated to the Domestic Terrorist’s Caucus , But in the end the answer is not one cent should have been given and these corporations MUST be held accountable!

Read the full article. There’s a list which is unfortunately too long to post here.

The real question is what do we do about it?

GOP Kevin McCarthy Whines: "Democrats are Using January 6th as a Political Weapon!"

GOP Kevin McCarthy Whines: “Democrats are Using January 6th as a Political Weapon!”

House Minority Leader Republican Kevin McCarthy on the one year anniversary of the Jan. 6 attacks in a letter to his GOP colleagues accused Democrats of using the days tragic domestic terrorist attack and events as a “partisan political weapon.”

As we have said from the start, the actions of that day were lawless and as wrong as wrong can be. Our Capitol should never be compromised and those who broke the law deserve to face legal repercussions and full accountability. Unfortunately, one year later, the majority party seems no closer to answering the central question of how the Capitol was left so unprepared and what must be done to ensure it never happens again,” he added. “Instead, they are using it as a partisan political weapon to further divide our country.”

The Hill

McCarthy’s squirming because he has a personal interest after his phone call with then President Trump during the insurrectionist terrorist attach became public knowledge.

Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., who chairs the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, “invited” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on Wednesday for a “voluntary interview”.\

If he has information he wants to share with us and is willing to voluntarily come in, I’m not taking the invitation off the table,” Thompson said during an interview with ABC News.

“If Leader McCarthy has nothing to hide, he can voluntarily come before the committee.”

Jan. 6 Capitol Riot Panel Has Evidence Rioters Interacted With GOP House Reps

Jan. 6 Capitol Riot Panel Has Evidence Rioters Interacted With GOP House Reps

Jan. 6 committee chair Bennie Thompson says on ABC that the investigation has uncovered the insurrection “appeared to be a coordinated effort on the part of a number of people to undermine the election.” including GOP Congressmen.

Thompson, said his panel has evidence of interactions between members of the House and the rioters that day but not necessarily of a significant nature and said the committee wanted to hear from Reps. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) about their activities, though he said it was not clear if his panel would or even could subpoena them.

When asked if the House Jan. 6 committee has found any significant evidence that members of Congress may be culpable in attack, chair Rep. Bennie Thompson tells George Stephanopoulos, “we’re in the process of getting to that.”

Funny but I seem to remember a video of Republicans giving the rioters tours of the Capitol in the days leading up to the Cracker Barrel Putsch despite the fact that tours were cancelled over COVID fears. That’s a good place to start for HARD evidence.

Twitter FINALLY Permanently Bans @mtg - Majorie Taylor Greene for Spreading False COVID information

Twitter FINALLY Permanently Bans @mtg – Marjorie Taylor Greene for Spreading False COVID information

After hundreds of thousands of reports since she was elected Twitter has FINALLY reportedly suspended Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s personal account for spreading COVID-19 misinformation. 

“We permanently suspended Marjorie Taylor Greene for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy,” Twitter said in a statement, according to CNN reporter Donie O’Sullivan. “We’ve been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy.”

BusinessInsider

Greene responded to Twitter’s decision on GETTR, the con-crazy-servative social media platform launched by Jason Miller.

“When Maxine Waters can go to the streets and threaten violence on Twitter, Kamala and Ilhan can bail out rioters on Twitter, and Chief spokesman for terrorist IRGC can tweet mourning Soleimani but I get suspended for tweeting VAERS statistics, Twitter is an enemy to America and can’t handle the truth. That’s fine, I’ll show America we don’t need them and it’s time to defeat our enemies,”

Twitter has been under fire the last year for allowing Republican politicians to post any misinformation they deemed fit even if blatantly went against TWITTERS TOS of Political and COVID misinformation.

For now the official representative account for Greene, a freshman Republican from Georgia, remains active on Twitter.

Dr. Fauci and a Majority of Americans Demand Firing Of Fox New’s Jesse Watters Over His Call To “Ambush” Fauci With A “Kill Shot” [VIDEO]

“Now you go in with the kill shot – deadly. Because, with an ambush, he doesn’t see it coming.” – FOX NEWS Host Jesse Watters

Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, on Tuesday called on Fox News to fire host Jesse Watters for targeting him with violent rhetoric at a conservative conference earlier this week.

“Now you go in for the kill shot. The kill shot? With an ambush? Deadly. Because he doesn’t see it coming,” Watters said.

“That’s awful that he said that. And he’s going to go, very likely, unaccountable,” Fauci told CNN of Watters’ remarks. “I mean, whatever network he’s on is not going to do anything for him. I mean, that’s crazy. The guy should be fired on the spot.”
