Former President Donald Trump's weekend statement blistering His Fraudulency Joe Biden's jaw-dropping (and avoidable) border mismanagement and crisis brought two thoughts to my mind. The first was how perfect the statement is.
It's a beautiful piece of work that exposes the Biden administration as the feckless, heartless liars and lunatics they truly are. Secondly, I thought about how Twitter-less Trump is so much more effective than Twittering Trump.
Imagine living in a 2021 world where, all things being the same, Trump was not blacklisted from Twitter; where he's still former-President Trump, but able to pop off three or four times a day on Twitter, commenting in real time on Biden's mounting disasters and pratfalls.
Does anyone truly believe those tweets would be as effective as this weekend's statement? Does anyone honestly believe it wasn't better for Trump to wait until Biden's border disaster was beyond dispute before he swooped in with a thoughtfully written and brutal critique?
On the basic merits of decency and Americanism I am, of course, horrified that the Silicon Valley Nazis blacklisted a former American president - one who got more raw votes than any other sitting president. Of course, the march of the Woke Gestapo is appalling and indecent and unforgivable. But...
Man, I can't also help but think about how much better things might have gone had Trump been blacklisted sooner. Like, say, a year earlier.
Pre-2020, when life in America was all shits and giggles, when the economy was growing and gas prices were shrinking, when jobs were being created and life was good, Trump was great on Twitter. But once the China Virus and Black Lives Matter/Antifa riots hit... Not so much. Instead of decreasing tensions, which is a president's primary job during a crisis, his Twitter feed (and nightly news conferences) only added to them. And yes, you can most certainly blame all of that on the corrupt media, but it was Trump's Twitter feed that kept handing them ammo.
All I'm saying is this: Imagine if, during the pandemic and riots, instead of Trump's "LAW AND ORDER!!!" tweets, we got periodic statements like the one released this weekend - thoughtful, perfectly crafted, compassionate, logical, common sense statements. I think things might have turned out very differently.
Imagine if today Trump was constantly popping off on Twitter at Biden. Those tweets might have been 100 percent accurate, but the fake media would be making those the story, which would give Biden all kinds of cover and a place to hide.
During a national crisis, which is the state our southern border right now, I want to hear from Trump, tens of millions want to hear from Trump... All I'm saying is this way is better. Much better.
Now we're hearing Trump might return to social media with his own platform.
Well, for the most part, I love that idea.
I love that 1) Trump is using his muscle to compete with Silicon Valley's Nazis, and 2) Trump is going to stick his finger in the Woke Gestapo's eye by launching a social media comeback.
At the same time, I sure hope Trump sees how much more effective he is when he's offstage, when he times his moves, when he uses the silent aura of a president-in-exile-plotting-a-return to add weight to the moments when he is no longer silent.
WANT A JOB? GET A SHOT!
The author is under the Delusion that Trump lost.
He did not.The election was stolen.
To achieve that the Democrats used COVID 19 to allow shenanigans to happen, and then they mixed fraudulent ballots with legit.
The Establishment and the Press acted like the Politburo and Pravda and MUZZLED any and all references to the need to investigate.
History shows, and we know that Trump wanted to put us Americans -particularly WORKING AMERICANS- first. He actuality delivered historical achievements in that regard... but the Establishment and the rich donors did not like that.
So don't you go telling me that he lost because the tweets... that did not happen...
The election was stolen. Period!
Trump's tweets were never the problem. The problem has always been the fascist demoncrat left and their media dogs lying their butts off every time, all the time!
Nolte has always frowned on Trump's tweets because he believed the MSM lie that he lost the suburbs because of them. That is a false assumption. It was the vote stealing machines and blatant demoncrat election fraud that led to a Biden "win". The Democrats brought out their pre-fillled in mail in ballots, deployed them to key Democrat strongholds in important states, and used them to narrowly win those states, which gave their guy Biden the electoral votes needed.
No one stopped the fraud. All the cases were shut down without allowing evidence to be presented. And now we have a dude with dementia for a president. Illegals flooding the border. And Gas going up through the roof. It was fraud, and there is no way 80 million Americans are stupid enough to vote for a disabled, mindless, pervert like Biden .
We watched the election being stolen on election night. We know what the Democrats did to steal the 2020 presidential election. Joe Biden is a thief, everyone knows he stole the election. Foreign leaders will not meet with him, they insult him and his representatives, many will not speak to him on the phone.
They have no respect for the corrupt Joe Biden who stole the presidential election. No respect for the corrupt and evil Democrats in Washington who orchestrated and directed the steal. They cower behind fences and razor wire, behind an armed military, because they are fearful an enraged American citizenry will rise up and destroy their corrupt regime.
A year ago I would have thought this was another brilliant piece but it's not. Trump won this last election. Get real!
The media misses him, since they still talk about him every day, all day long.
What Nolte doesn't understand is that Trump's tweets reached a lot more people than this statement he put out precisely because the media would jump on his every tweet to complain about it. By complaining about his tweets, they would actually cause a lot more people to see what he's saying. And Trump knew this, and took very effective advantage of it.
What Nolte neglects to mention is that
None of this would be happening if corrupt coward senate "Republicans" had backed The Magnificent Six, objected to the steal and appointed an emergency audit commission.
President Trump's Tweets were the laser pointer, and the media was the kittens chasing it everywhere.
Donald Trump, the most transparent and honest president in modern times. We knew what he was thinking every day. He did nothing in secret, everything was out in the open. He used Twitter to communicate with the American people. He went directly to the people, his words were not filtered through a hostile Democrat press. That being said, President Trump never brushed off the media and their questions. There were daily press briefings and his press secretary was always happy to answer questions.

Mask tyranny reached a new low recently when a family was kicked off a Spirit Airlines flight because their four-year-old autistic son was not wearing a mask. The family was removed from the plane even though the boy's doctor had decided the boy should be exempted from mask mandates because the boy panics and engages in behavior that could pose a danger to himself when wearing a mask.
Besides, four-year-olds do not present much risk of spreading or contracting coronavirus. Even if masks did prevent infections among adults, there would be no reason to force children to wear masks.
Mask mandates have as much to do with healthcare as Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screenings have to do with stopping terrorism. Masks and TSA screenings are "security theater" done to reassure those frightened by government and media propaganda regarding coronavirus and terrorism that the government is protecting them.
Covid oppression will worsen if vaccine passports become more widely required. Vaccine passports are digital or physical proof a person has taken a coronavirus vaccine. New York is already requiring that individuals produce digital proof of taking a coronavirus vaccine before being admitted to sporting events.
Imagine if the zealous enforcers of mask mandates had the power to deny you access to public places because you have not "gotten your shot." Even worse, what if a potential employer had to ensure you were "properly" vaccinated before hiring you? This could come to pass if proponents of mandatory E-Verify have their way.
E-Verify requires employers to submit personal identifying information - such as a social security numbers and biometric data - to a government database to ensure job applicants have federal permission to hold jobs.
Currently, E-Verify is only used to assure a job applicant is a citizen or legal resident. However, its use could be expanded to advancing other purposes, such as ensuring a potential new hire has taken all the recommended vaccines.
E-Verify could even be used to check if a job applicant has ever expressed, or associated with someone who has expressed, "hate speech," "conspiracy theories," or "Russian disinformation," which is code for facts embarrassing to the political class.
Many employers will be reluctant to hire such an employee for fear their businesses will become the next targets of "cancel culture." Those who doubt this should consider how many businesses have folded under pressure from the cultural Marxists and fired someone for expressing an "unapproved" thought.
Politicians and bureaucrats have used overblown fear of coronavirus to justify the largest infringement of individual liberty in modern times. Covid tyranny has been aided by many Americans who are not just willing to sacrifice their liberty for phony security, but who help government take away liberty from their fellow citizens.
The good news is that, as it becomes increasingly clear that there was no need to shut down the economy, throw millions out of work, subject children to the fraud of "virtual" learning, and force everyone to wear a mask, more people are turning against the politicians and "experts" behind the lockdowns and mandates.
Hopefully, these Americans will realize that, in addition to coronavirus lockdowns and mandates, the entire welfare-warfare-fiat money system is built on a foundation of lies.
