We don’t know what the future holds, but it’s clear that we need a lifeline to you outside of social media platforms

Have you signed up?

Given the rapid deplatforming of Trump (who was permanently suspended from Twitter, his campaign store deplatformed, and his campaign email service cut) and his allies, and the suspension of Parler from Google’s App Store (Apple is threatening Parler similarly), now seems as good a time as any to ask you to join us (if you haven’t already) by signing up for our email list.

I know, I know — email lists are the worst. But as the official list manager, I promise we never spam nor sell your information. We hate when that happens to us, so we won’t do it to you. You can control your subscription in that you can sign up for Morning Insurrection (arrives in your inbox daily, Monday – Friday) or just keep it to general emails which means you’ll only get super important announcements from us.

Sign Up!

We saw the writing on the wall last year and began branching out into other social media platforms like Parler and MeWe. We remain on the larger platforms. For now.

We don’t know what the future holds, but it’s clear that we need a lifeline to you outside of social media platforms.

These are uncertain times. We are not afraid. We are not discouraged. But we are prepared. And we are all in this together. You are not alone.

Thank you for being part of the Legal Insurrection Community. You help make this a great spot of internet real estate. We are truly grateful for you.

Ephesians 6:12.

And again for good measure:

    I strongly urge LI to have a backup server, perhaps one outside America. Also look at protection from DNS interference. One approach is multiple TLDs. And, keep backups of both articles and comments. It might be a good idea to have multiple domains with the same content, make them play whack a mole

    I repeat my suggestion that hosting service be created in conjunction with a VPN. As long as users do all their browsing via that, it would pretty much kill any tracking. It should identify and spoof all known tracking/identification, feeding them bogus information.

      Connivin Caniff in reply to JusticeDelivered. | January 9, 2021 at 9:28 am

      JusticeDelivered, it sounds like you know what you are talking about. Can a conservative entity set up servers that operate totally independently, in place of Amazon and other services? (In effect become or act at the level and autonomy of Amazon or Apple, so one doesn’t have to answer to anybody, just like those companies don’t.) If so, is it difficult to do and how much does it cost? Can one do it out of another nation state, like Hungary or Poland, to free itself further from unjust control?

        JusticeDelivered in reply to Connivin Caniff. | January 9, 2021 at 4:43 pm

        Servers can operate independently, but they need a connection to the backbone of Internet. That is a choke point. There can be more than connection via different service providers. DNS resolvers are used to convert domain name to an IP address. That is potentially another choke point. There has been work on OpenDNS. I am retired, and no longer follow this stuff closely.

      Those are all good ideas, but perhaps overkill. I don’t believe it will ever come to a point where those things are needed for sites like LI. Parler, yes, should do all of that.

        I think you’re behind the curve on this one, Milhouse.

        It’s coming.

          Brave Sir Robbin in reply to TheFineReport.com. | January 10, 2021 at 6:44 pm

          Agree – Milhouse is behind the curve. They will also try and choke of banking, payment, and funding services. Conservative content providers will need an independent way to gain payment and funding for initial buildout, expansion, and recapitalization.

          I agree. Millhouse means well, but doesn’t get the urgency of the problem.

          What I find gratifying and reassuring, however, is the level of expertise of internet site and security development shown among the commenters here. There’s no doubt that our side has the money andtech savvy to make it happen, just that it’s not an overnight project and we need to be one step ahead of the FUTURE obstacles put in our way.

          DaniBenGolani in reply to TheFineReport.com. | January 11, 2021 at 7:27 am

          Indeed Milhouse underestimates the ruthlessly on the left. The university has given them a academic and Intellectual reasoning for shutting down everything and anything. In past history a “logic” is created to justify anything.
          What we are seeing across SM has been the norm on many universities who create this mind control. When you call everybody a “nazi” of course you can shut them down.

          Prediction – The Democrats will make Deplatforming part of their go to playbook.

          The NRA is next.

        I believe I’ve already read an article that says Big Tech has already put Parler out of business. If you don’t think that Twitter, Facebook and Google aren’t coming for conservatives and anyone who doesn’t tow the leftist line, then you’re in for a rude awakening–it’s already happening.

          JusticeDelivered in reply to rochf. | January 12, 2021 at 5:51 pm

          Parler should immediately setup an offshore server, and an old fashioned email based list server. That will have them up and running in a matter of a day ow two, then restore it as it was.

          The list server will allow fundraising and and organizational contact. We need communication links.

          Besides, opening that communication channel would be a big PR coup, Dems will be so pissed. We need to raise their blood pressure to the point they start blowing their gaskets.

      Most savvy admins out there, those whom know about WordPress should know what tools to use to keep sources like this alive.

      I would suggest the same engines that have kept Torrent engines alive over the past couple decades, Peer-to-Peer designs that are in effect a whack-a-mole to suppress.

      As far as self hosting goes, anyone with a connection to the internet in terms of a wired connection (not on a cellular based connection due to internal NAT) can host websites.

      Researching the DNS provider is something I would strongly suggest.

      I’m available for contact via the site admins for any advice, or assistance as a fellow everything admin, IT veteran

      The ultimate workaround for this has been Alex Jones’s total approach. Hate him or else but he succesfully navigated EVRYTHING and survived.

“I had no problem with litigating election disputes, even if some of those disputes were suspect. Let the court process run its course, I advocated. But once that process had run out, and not a single judge, not even Trump appointed judges, upheld any challenges…”

Maybe not.

    Were any of those cases decided on the basis of fraud allegations as opposed to technical issues regarding the suit? Most of the cases I’ve heard about it’s been too early, too late, or lack of standing. And then of course there’s the now famous PA case where activists got a lawfirm to drop their case, independent lawyers supporting the firm then removed themselves as it was too complex for anything less than a firm, a radio host jumped into the gap but asked for time to prepare, and the Obama judge refused despite him having less than 24 hours to prep the case. Naturally he lost.

    As best I can tell the courts have ignored the evidence of fraud, instead relying on technical grounds to deny justice.

      Allegations? Technical issues? How about examining the ballots themselves and the envelopes they came in. I’ve not heard a single word about the 53’ trailer that went missing in PA, though I may have missed it. That’s just a single instance. Javon Pulitzer demonstrated for all the world to see illustrations of fraudulent ballots in testimony in front of the GA legislatures subcommittee. “Officials” there said they had looked at them all. Balderdash. How about the missing voting machine logs in WI? Or the testimony of technical experts in WI and MI? Has anyone examined, physically handled, the ballots or voting machines in NV, or any of these states? The issue here is that “judges said” is a low standard. What we have is a question of a “judge” choosing one person’s word over another’s. I don’t give a damn who nominated them, these things have never been investigated; there is only testimony, testimony that is itself nothing more than a competing allegation, they have been investigated, testimony, allegations, from the individuals with most to lose by allowing true investigations. I get standing. As a practical matter, the Supremes – judges – simply sniffed and denied it when they dismissed Texas’ suit. Emmett Sullivans everywhere – and a lot of other people – smiled and heaved a gigantic sigh of relief when that happened. This election positively reeks reeks of fraud, no matter what “judges” declare.

        Milhouse in reply to Owego. | January 10, 2021 at 3:56 pm

        1. If we believe that a trailer did indeed go missing in PA (and we only have one person’s word for it), what is that supposed to mean? That the Dems stole and destroyed a whole load of absentee ballots, most of which they could expect to have been for them?! Why would they have done that? Other than that possibility, I have never understood what it is that people think the driver’s story is supposed to prove. What’s unusual about a postal driver delivering a load of incoming ballots from one postal facility to another?

        2. “Jovan Pulitzer”, or whatever he’s calling himself this week, is a certifiable lunatic, and nothing he says is worth paying any attention to. He is not an expert on anything, and he didn’t prove anything.

        Much the same applies to all your vague claims. None of them have been substantiated.

        I have no doubt there was a lot of fraud, maybe even enough to have changed the result, but there is very little in the way of direct evidence. Most of the evidence is indirect and inferential, and never had any chance of standing up in court. That’s how the Democrats designed it. Remember, Democrats have been doing this for most of a century (if not more), and they’re good at it. They know how to hide their tracks.

        To me the best argument for the existence and scale of the fraud is that when someone goes to great pains to make sure the bank vault is left unlocked one night, with the alarm disarmed, the guards given the night off, and no record made in the evening of how much money was supposed to be in there, you don’t need any direct evidence to know that there was a break-in.

          mark311 in reply to Milhouse. | January 10, 2021 at 4:13 pm

          So what’s your theory on how the fraud worked then? I mean the hand ballots tallied with the electronic counts? I’m not entirely clear that your analogy works. There would need to be a lot of participants given the number of states, and number of machine providers. And yet no one credible has come forward.

          Chuckin Houston in reply to Milhouse. | January 10, 2021 at 4:30 pm

          I’ve been trying to tell folks that it is virtually impossible to correct an election result even if one can prove fraud beyond a reasonable doubt. One has to prevent fraud from happening in the first place. The primary reason for this is the secret ballot. For example, once a mailed-in ballot has been separated from the envelope it cannot be retrieved.

          In Georgia about 12,000 ballots were cast by people who appeared to have moved out of state per the USPS database. But, subtracting 12,000 votes from Biden would not have been acceptable to the courts for several reasons: some of these voters may still have been legitimate GA voters; many were registered Republicans; and, for all we know, thousands may have voted for Trump.

          Vladtheimp in reply to Milhouse. | January 10, 2021 at 7:45 pm

          So, only so-called “direct evidence” counts? So, election fraud evidenced by huge numbers of eyewitnesses testifying under sworn affidavits or affidavits submitted under Penalty of Perjury is not supported by ‘direct evidence’?

          Overwhelming statistical evidence of election fraud is unreliable, (unlike DNA statistical evidence which relies on statistical probabilities is reliable) and should be rejected (and all those convicted released)?

          Workplace discrimination suits based on non-direct evidence should be rejected (and those who had to pay reparations based on that non-direct evidence should be recompensed)?

          A purist on ‘direct evidence’ you ain’t.

          Personally, I would be interested to read your take on how in-person paper ballots; voter I.D., and rational allowances for absentee voting would be inimical to fair elections.

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | January 10, 2021 at 8:09 pm

          Mark, that the hand count matched the machine count only means there was nothing wrong with the machines. They counted correctly what they were fed. From that moment there should have been no talk about Dominion, and everyone on the R side should have told Wood and Powell to shut up about that. But that doesn’t tell us anything about the ballots themselves. How many were fraudulent? Either from ineligible voters, or cast by someone other than the eligible voter in whose name they appeared. This is how fraud always worked before the modern machines, and there’s no reason to suppose it has ceased.

          The classic modes for mass fraud were always: (1) People showing up claiming to be other people, who are not expected to vote (sometimes because they’re dead, sometimes because they’re invalid, or they just never vote); (2) Absentee ballot applications that either have forged signatures, or that are signed by the voter but will be intercepted and voted by someone else; (3) At inner-city polling places where no Republican poll watchers are allowed, inside jobs where ballots are introduced into the system, and voters are marked off as having cast them. (4) In New Jersey a Democrat operative recently confessed/bragged that they have another method: intercept genuine absentee ballots, steam them open and if the vote is for the wrong candidate remove it and substitute a prepared ballots for the right one, then reseal them and put them back in the mail. (That may actually answer the question I asked earlier, why would Democrats want to steal a truck load of genuine absentee votes.) I’m sure you can think of other methods too.

          Have you ever seen The Great McGinty?

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | January 10, 2021 at 8:26 pm

          Chuckin, “In Georgia about 12,000 ballots were cast by people who appeared to have moved out of state per the USPS database.” Or so said Matt Braynard. Given his other goofs his word on this should be taken with suspicion. But as you say, even if the matches are genuine, many of those people would still be eligible voters, and many would have voted Republican.

          Vlad, yes, to overturn an election result direct evidence of fraud is necessary. That’s how it works. And even that is not sufficient, because even if you establish that a vote is bad there’s no telling for whom it was cast; the ballot is already in the system, and indistinguishable from all the other ballots.

          And no, there never were “huge numbers of eyewitnesses testifying” to having witnessed fraud. Very few, in fact, if any. And a court would not just take their word for it, it would examine them and decide whether to believe them.

          Personally, I would be interested to read your take on how in-person paper ballots; voter I.D., and rational allowances for absentee voting would be inimical to fair elections.

          It wouldn’t. If it were up to me I would very severely restrict absentee voting.

          I’d have mobile voting booths, complete with two election inspectors and a gaggle of observers, going around the hospitals and nursing homes so patients can vote in person, and maybe even visit the homebound, thus eliminating the vast majority of the need for it.

          With modern technology even the vast majority of military ballots can be done in person, on base, before a bipartisan team of inspectors who can verify ID. Only those actually out in the field, or on a submarine, would need to vote absentee.

          And voter registration needs to be cleaned up. I’d make everyone reregister, and provide proof of eligibility. If you can’t, I’m very sorry but you don’t get to vote. The presumption that everyone should be allowed to vote unless we can prove they’re ineligible should be reversed, because there is no constitutional right to vote.

          And what I’d really like to do is repeal the ban on literacy tests, which was always stupid and wrong, and instead make sure that tests are fair and are administered fairly, with severe penalties for those who don’t.

          mark311 in reply to Milhouse. | January 11, 2021 at 8:52 am

          Milhouse, you raise some interesting points there and I sense there is at least some validity to the points you raise. I don’t see those issues as having the scale required to carry out a fraud and I would still expect some evidence to come to light. It seems odd to me to hang your hat so fervently on a position that remains somewhat theoretical. That said I would say that given the fraud claims a neutral investigation or commission into voter integrity is important. Re-establishing the optics of election integrity is pretty important especially in the climate today.

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | January 11, 2021 at 5:29 pm

          Mark, given the long history of Democrat fraud, the way the Democrats made fraud dramatically easier this time, and the outcome that was so inconsistent with the perceptible enthusiasm gap, the indirect evidence is so great that I don’t need any direct evidence. Especially since the Democrats have rigged the system specifically to prevent direct evidence from existing.

          When poll workers take ballots out of the poll watchers’ sight, handle them in some way that is by definition invisible, and then return and count them, there is by design no direct evidence that they did anything to them, but only an idiot would come to any other conclusion.

          Think back to 2000, when Miami/Dade and Broward counties were counting and recounting, and each time chad was falling and the numbers kept shifting Gore’s way. The narrative today is that since the press counted the votes afterwards and found that Bush had more, therefore had the recount continued that is the result that would have been found, and therefore the Supreme Court acted needlessly. But only a fool believes that. It was perfectly obvious to all what was happening. Had the recount continued, Gore would have won. The ballots the press counted after the event are not the ballots that would have been counted in a recount. The whole point of the repeated recounts was to give them a chance to alter ballots, and had they been allowed to do it again they would have altered enough to push Gore over the line. It’s only because they were prevented from doing so that the ballots show Bush ahead. This is certain, despite the lack of direct evidence.

          Ironclaw in reply to Milhouse. | January 11, 2021 at 10:37 pm

          Why would a postal driver be delivering completed ballots from New York to Pennsylvania? They’re different States and they use different ballots.

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | January 11, 2021 at 11:50 pm

          Ironclaw, because they were mailed, that’s why. From all over the country. Bethpage, NY is a major postal facility, and it’s not at all surprising that it has at least one (probably more than one) truck going to Harrisburg, PA and Lancaster, PA every single night. Nor is it at all surprising that during an election with such high usage of postal ballots, and with the USPS under court order to segregate ballots and treat them specially, it would send a large quantity on the same truck.

    It would be easier to just set up your own DHCP and DNS server on your home network.

    Google and other ISP’s have no capabilities to block your access to the root servers. You can bypass all service providers DHCP and DNS services at your home for only a few hundred bucks and a few of hours of work.

    Hell I can run a windows 2000 advanced server with DHCP and DNS for a multi hundred node network on a 486 Pentium PC.

    Windows server 2016 basic is only a $600, you can run it on almost any old used pc with 4 gig of memory and a solid state hard drive. There are you tube guides that directly show you how to set up DHCP, DNS and Active Directory. I run my home domain on a 10+ year old dell with no fans or moving hard drives. i think it only pulls about 30 watts of power to sit there idling because dhcp and dns take almost no processing power

      Better to do this in Linux, in fact, most web servers are running Linus in some form, and it is free.

      I am in the process of converting RAID servers to use a Raspberry Pi. They have low power consumption.

      You can also turn a Raspberry Pi cluster into a very effective low cost server. There is a back plain which will hold 4 Pis, and rack which holds ten of the back plains.

      As to running servers from a consumer internet connection, that is often prohibited.

    Altering the hostfile in windows is a smartmove, for those familiar.

    setting static DNS is also another step…

    Initially I would advice not to utilize Google DNS (8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4)

    Not that these source below couldn’t fall victim over time to leftist suppression, but currently they provide alternatives, and even just using DNS provided via your ISP might be better off (look to a sticker on your modem).

    Here’s a few mainstream DNS servers of a variety acclaimed to be secure and censorship-less oriented.

    OpenNIC
    Preferred DNS Server: 46.151.208.154
    Alternate DNS server: 128.199.248.105

    DNSWatch
    Preferred DNS Server: 84.200.69.80
    Alternate DNS server: 84.200.70.40

    Level3
    Preferred DNS Server: 209.244.0.3
    Alternate DNS server: 208.244.0.4

The Dems are scared to death of Trump! They fear him in 2024 because who else in the U.S. could turn out that many people in D.C. for a rally? Power is Dems hunger and thirst. Not one politician in D C is asking the question “why are all these angry people here?”

    mark311 in reply to Hawk. | January 10, 2021 at 4:22 pm

    Not anymore, Trump blew it with the Capitol protests. He is associated with what is widely to be considered to be an insurrection (polls indicate circa 67percent blame Trump). Then he condemned the protestors which has triggered a backlash in some quarters. The final point is that Trump needs Twitter, and that’s gone. His reach is no where near as great now.

    Milhouse in reply to Hawk. | January 10, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    In 2024 Trump will be older than Biden is now. Even assuming he’s still full of energy and completely compos mentis, people will have just been through a geriatric presidency that will very likely have lasted less than a full term (and may even have involved a nasty fight over the transition), and a lot of them won’t want to risk it again. And a lot of people will be under the false impression that Reagan’s senility started while he was still in office, and will take that as a warning. And, yes, the Dems will have had four years in office to blacken his name even more successfully than they’ve already done.

    I don’t think so (and I am a Trump supporter). Revenge candidacies rarely work, and the odds are not insignificant that Trump, Biden, Pelosi, and even Schumer all might not be around in 2024.

    What Trump should do is anoint a much younger successor to carry the torch and thus give that candidate a leg up in obtaining the GOP nomination backed by a unified party.

      alaskabob in reply to sestamibi. | January 11, 2021 at 1:57 am

      The half life of the GOP after trashing Trump is less than tc-99m I bet. We all are next to be “vaporized” as in 1984.

I’ve been on the list a while, already, as a mere precaution against something happening to this site. I did not expect anything, really, but I’ve been around enough to know that some people with a little bit of power can, from time to time, celebrate the abuse of such power.

I did not expect anything a crude and blatant as these moves by allegedly private companies, all of which are vulnerable to being replaced by upstarts.

The bribes must be enormous.

    Have you noticed tech exec being placed on Biden’s staff?

      DaniBenGolani in reply to JusticeDelivered. | January 12, 2021 at 6:43 pm

      Yes. all the mission critical industries are around him. It is a revolving door between the Democratic party, media, tech, NGO.

      The Republicans used to have the upper hand with oil, construction, defense people around them. But those are no longer as relevant. Making films, podcasts, control of information is much more powerful today. Young voters and the people who know how to get to them….

How long are we going to have any platform when CNN is out making problems for any DOman servers that host Conservatives.

Signing up for e-mail is all well and good, but it won’t stop our e-mail services from blocking your messages. My main provider is Yahoo, and it is just as likely that they’ll stop carrying your product as any other leftist controlled entity. I’ve already had one e-mail account disappear (ATT) for unexplained reasons (and I spent a good amount of time trying to track it down), and it wouldn’t surprise me if Yahoo stopped providing services to their “enemies”, also.

    Valerie in reply to txvet2. | January 9, 2021 at 4:04 pm

    I hear protonmail is getting a lot of visits.

    It does have charges, and you will want to limit spam emails coming into that box.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to txvet2. | January 12, 2021 at 7:51 pm

    I cannot count how many times I have had to eradicate Yahoo crap out of scores of computers. They a sneaky SOBs, changing system defaults.

    You can rent server space, including email service. Lookup Cpanel and study it, that would be the typical user shell to control domains and email.

Sound advice in here. I don’t understand all of it but I have children who do. Who knew it would get to the point that we have to do this to protect our right of free speech?

Have the ads all disappeared on the weasel zipper page for anyone else?

I find it astounding that every republican president, the left and the media decry “perceived” censorship and an attack on their 1st Amendment rights, but I have never seen the things the left has done in the past four years and the past few weeks done by republicans. Never, not even close. It’s shocking how quickly the left has embraced totalitarianism.

    20keto20 in reply to Guardian79. | January 12, 2021 at 6:28 am

    Curious Guardian. How many years is quickly? This hasn’t come about since the Capitol invasion or even the Trump presidency. Interested to hear your timeline and why.

To all you legal eagles out there.

What rights do a person that owns a piece of hardware eg: Tablet or Phone or computer have to install what ever software they want. under the “Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act” shouldn’t I be able to install what I want on my own piece of hardware?

If google and apple take away my access to applications due to what I perceive as political censorship and does not give me the ability to download and install it outside of their platform doesn’t it violate that act?

What would happen if every person that owned a device showed up at a federal court house and filed a complaint against google and apple for violation of that act. Sort of like a reverse DCMA complaint. I mean wouldn’t the courts freak out if they got a million of the same complaint?

Wouldn’t Apple and Google have to respond to each and every complaint?

    Think out of the box on this. Lets use the tactics they use against us, against them. Make the process the punishment.

    I don’t know about iphone, but Android does not prevent you from downloading apps from outside the Google store. You can find the Parler app and download it now. You do have to change a security setting on your phone to allow it; the phone itself should prompt you.

    Are there enough Federal courts at various levels who would actually rule against the social media defendants?

      20keto20 in reply to RAM500. | January 12, 2021 at 6:32 am

      Maxine herself told us before Trump ever entered the White House that the Democrats had the goods on almost all federal judges and most of Congress. Blackmail is more a way of operating than some minor, external activity. There is no honor in the political world. Not unnoticed that members of Congress fall well below used car salesmen and shyster lawyers on the ratings charts. Sad part is that most Americans realize how corrupt members of Congress are but they keep sending them back with their votes, indicating that we have gradually accepted that if you run for Congress, you are most likely a lying, power hungry weasel.

    mark311 in reply to starride. | January 10, 2021 at 4:35 pm

    Well I guess it depends on how they are blocking access. If it’s via there own market place well that’s there rules so no not really challangable. If it were via blocking a third party website because they didn’t like the contents then that would potentially have some legal recourse I guess?

On your email list. Followed you on Parler and MeWe. Do you have a link on Gab?

    Kemberlee Kaye in reply to ray. | January 10, 2021 at 12:52 am

    We do. Recently created an account there.

      DaniBenGolani in reply to Kemberlee Kaye. | January 10, 2021 at 11:13 am

      I think that in the long run the separation of different political media is a good thing.

      I am shocked of course that this is happening, but right off center media must have its own infrastructure.
      There is no harm in starting to build that. I believe this is an exciting time and a dynamic one.

      Parler will take a gut punch this week and will be weak for a month or so. But there is enough investor money to set it up properly. I hope that people like Elon Musk, Thiel and many conservative players move away from clown shows ? like FB and Twitter.

      The one thing Parler must get a handle on is its antisemitism.

      The reshuffling of cards makes us sharper and makes us taste the freedom we take for granted. Twitter is a joke . I am on Parler and follow LI there.

        Milhouse in reply to DaniBenGolani. | January 10, 2021 at 4:02 pm

        I haven’t spent much time on Parler in the 2-3 years since I signed up (just as I hadn’t spend much time on Twitter in the previous decade or so), but I haven’t noticed any antisemitism. Gab is a different story. About 2-3 years ago, when I deleted my Twitter account, I signed up for Gab, took one whiff of the stink of antisemitism, and deleted my account immediately. Haven’t been back since.

It’s time for a review of what preceded the new media vandalism of the Constitution:
WHAT HAPPENED?

Trump was a probe that the American majority launched into government to make it conform to its political will and traditional constitutional norms.

What he found there was a vast network that includes elected officials, bureaucrats, courts, and corporations, all dedicated to corrupt, self-serving goals and not ours, with many who had sold out to foreign interests. He sensed this from the start, but gradually learned its full extent.

As soon as Trump began to do well in the 2016 primaries, the GOP sensed a threat and surrounded Trump with party operatives to try to control him. Meanwhile, Obama and his people were already using the FBI and intelligence organizations to put him out of action. That year, he surprised everyone, so not enough votes were stolen for Hillary to defeat him. (They “fixed” this problem during his term, enabling more complete manipulation of the vote count).

Once he was in office, his cocoon of GOP double agents made sure he put their people into the Cabinet and other key positions. As a political neophyte and loner, he didn’t arrive in DC with enough of his own loyal people to prevent this. He also had no personal organizations on the state, local, and federal levels to back him up. Since nearly all the potential hiring prospects with relevant experience were corrupt and allied to anti-Trump forces and policies, he was boxed in, Gen. Flynn actually was loyal and knew the deep state’s secrets, so naturally the double agents got him pushed aside.

He learned who was disloyal, but couldn’t replace them without McConnell’s support. Thus, filthy creatures in business suits, like Wray, Haspel, and Barr got in, and stymied him at every turn. They could run out the clock. I marvel at our smart Republican pundits who sniped at his ineffective legal effort to “stop the steal”, He had no DOJ help, no FBI help, and no intelligence help to pull his case together optimally. Instead, the potential legal “A” team sat it out (at best) before and after the election. In any event, the judges and legislatures looked for ways to not do their jobs. Some Trump election lawsuits said that governors and other state officials did illegal things not OK’d by their legislatures. Were the legislators blind to those acts as they unfolded? No! They had other, more personal, priorities.

Oh yeah, the new Supreme Court Justices, afraid of their own shadows. So, on all levels of this sorry government, the checks won’t check and the balances won’t balance.

Amazingly, Trump got a lot done during his term despite unified opposition from both parties. He was a human dynamo, a rarity in DC. In some cases, his interests coincided with those of GOP corporate donors, thus the tax cuts and removal of harmful regulations. In foreign policy, he could do more on his own, and did great things for the US and its true allies like Israel..

Bottom line: Trump-as-probe exposed the vast corrupt network we call government, but had no loyal organization to back him up. He still doesn’t. His movement will have to find a way to organize itself in the face of fierce opposition that controls the means of communication in the US and worldwide. It’s a big country. What are they going to use, smoke signals?

So, right now, there are Trump and his voters, but still no political organization in between. Such a group could have managed the last DC rally/march with marshals, etc., to sniff out and neutralize the hotheads (right and/or left wing) who attacked the Capitol. That sacred Capitol filled with robbers and thieves on a normal day That sacred Capitol guarded by “police” who let the vandals in.

There’s about 5 news sites that I follow old school… so as long as your website is up, I’m in the know.

I never bought into apps or social media for getting my news and probably never will, though I did follow you guys on Parler when I created my account this weekend.

Suggest looking to off shore sites for server farms such as Switzerland. Or Hungary.

    mark311 in reply to Caius. | January 10, 2021 at 4:27 pm

    Switzerland is a good shout as it’s notorious for its neutrality. Years ago there used to be a data farm on Sealand but that closed down. If someone were really paranoid about data from a legal perspective that would be the place to go

    kyrrat in reply to Caius. | January 11, 2021 at 1:04 pm

    Look for data services, Cloud and otherwise in Poland. They went through this long before the internet but their datastructures guard against a repeat

This is the second time that I have had to register. I received the morning report for weeks then it suddenly stopped. Is Google blocking it from my gmail account? Maybe.

A “lifeline” from a source owned by an inveterate NeverTrumper? I’ll pass.

A text service wouldn’t be a bad idea either since email can also get blocked (as has already been done right now).

I just got my first “Morning Insurrection”. In the WELCOME section…

“As promised, we will never NOT spam you…”

Really??!!

Email list and webrings to various website blogs. It’s what we used eons ago (in internet time) before social media and we’ll have to use it again for a while.

I got a chuckle this morning when I looked in my inbox and saw your email. In the text of the email it says:

“As promised, we will never NOT spam you…”

Is that some sort of lawyeresque promise to always spam me?

I notice this morning a blog by a Chicago police officer (second city cop) appears to be the latest victim of NotGoodSpeech purges by Google. It is a really small blog but it was well written and had no problem pointing out the failings of the democrats that run Chicago.

When they set the filters to extra fine, and do it this quickly, we really are in trouble.

You might want to check runbox.com. They’re Norwegian based and have its privacy laws. In addition to email services, they also have web hosting. https://runbox.com

    Although Norway is not a EU member, it does belong to European Economic Area. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Economic_Area

    I do not know how much control Brussels has over Norway.

      DieJustAsHappy in reply to ParkRidgeIL. | January 11, 2021 at 4:55 pm

      The EU established the General Data Protection regulation (GDPR). It is in effect for all countries in the European Economic Area (EEA). Norway is a part of the EEA and has implemented legislation with regard to GDPR. As such, Runbox has instituted the GDPR as pertains to internal policies and procedures, partners and contractors, and protection of user’s rights.

      This information has been gleaned from the webpage: https://blog.runbox.com/2018/04/gdpr-and-updates-to-our-terms-and-policies/

      As a personal user, not a business one, I’ve been satisfied with their service. Any issues, there have been a few over four + years, were promptly resolved.

      DaniBenGolani in reply to ParkRidgeIL. | January 11, 2021 at 5:23 pm

      As a general rule, if you wish to do business with the EU, they try to make you play by their rules. This goes especially for nations close to the EU, like Norway , Switzerland and now the UK after Brexit. This sort of thing will only get worse in the future because the EU will use access to their market as a lever to apply pressure.
      This is one of the major sticking points for Boris Johnson during the Brexit negotiations. Many Brits have a problem that there are being ruled by judges from Luxembourg.
      The EU also has an activist GA who has insane ideas for illegal mass immigration.

Who was that they buried first?
The Consertive Treehouse?

That was the wake-up call.
The President threatened to start a new platform, and his pockets are deep enough to pull it.
I believe there is an excellent chance he will.

But until then, Citizen Free Press just broke out, The Conservative Treehouse is all patched up…

Compare notes with those guys.
