#GoodMorningDC.Tech oligarchy continues to act as the tyrant of free speech.
Good Morning DC! Yesterday morning, we published the scoop that Elise Stefanik got the stamp of approval from Donald Trump to replace Liz Cheney.
A few hours after our report was published, the former President issued a memo confirming his endorsement.
"Liz Cheney is a warmongering fool who has no business in Republican Party Leadership," Trump stated. "We want leaders who believe in the Make America Great Again movement and prioritize the values of America First," he continued adding that "Elise Stefanik is a far superior choice, and she has my COMPLETE and TOTAL Endorsement for GOP Conference Chair."
As the infighting continues, Liz Cheney is holding on for dear life to stay in power. On Wednesday, she penned an OpEd in Washington Post. The GOP is at a turning point. History is watching us. In her column, Cheney calls on Republicans to "steer away from the dangerous and anti-democratic Trump cult of personality."
Cheney's OpEd is a footnote to history, an account that she's putting on the record for future historians to review.
Publishing editorials in WaPo and NYT does make any impact on the Republican Party as these people read Breitbart and Daily Caller and watch Fox, Newsmax, and OAN.
Trump loyalists do not change their minds. If Cheney wants to appeal to the Republican base, she needs to pen an OpEd where the Republican audience is.
Trump continues to claim that "Warmonger Liz Cheney," as he likes to call her, "has virtually no support left in the Great State of Wyoming."
Our party's turned a very dark corner," said Cindy McCain to Amanpour. "Liz Cheney's going to be thrown out because she told the truth. We've lost our way… A small, very vocal few are running the [GOP], and the rest of us who consider ourselves Republicans are kind of left out in the cold."
Tech oligarchy continues to act as the tyrant of free speech.
Donald Trump won't be allowed to come back on Facebook, the board of censors has announced. The ban will be reviewed in six months.
"Facebook should permanently ban Trump," Democrats put out a call for censorship of their political opponent.
Take a good look at their message, as this is how censorship of political opponents looks like in dictatorships.
I have nothing good to say about this. This is a nexus between tech monopoly and political power.
Congressman Ken Buck responded to the ban by saying that "Facebook’s status as a monopoly has led its leaders to believe it can silence and censor Americans' speech with no repercussions." He added that "Now more than ever we need aggressive antitrust reform to break up Facebook’s monopoly."
Jim Banks said that "If Facebook is so big it thinks it can silence the leaders you elect, it’s time for conservatives to pursue an antitrust agenda."
Trump shared his thoughts on the continued ban.
"What Facebook, Twitter, and Google have done is a total disgrace and an embarrassment to our Country," he began. "Free Speech has been taken away from the President of the United States because the Radical Left Lunatics are afraid of the truth, but the truth will come out anyway, bigger and stronger than ever before," he said.
"The People of our Country will not stand for it! These corrupt social media companies must pay a political price and must never again be allowed to destroy and decimate our Electoral Process."

Caitlyn Jenner had her first exclusive prime-time interview on Hannity last night, where she espoused her intention to be a "role model." Newsom challenger vowed the new path forward for Californians.
Caitlyn said she supports the Wall but that she is pro-legal immigration and that we have to modernize our immigration system. On Trump, she kept a middle ground by saying that on some things, she agreed with the former president and that on some, she has been critical of him. The difference she pointed out was that with president Biden, she does not agree on anything.
The interview was powerful and heartfelt, depicting the inner struggles of a transgender woman. Caitlyn speaks like a human and can connect to Americans on a deep level. She is a Progressive Republican. If she continues to talk on the national stage about the problems in California the way she did in an interview with Sean Hannity, the gubernatorial election will be one of the most important stories to follow closely.
