I just had an intriguing thought. Since the video was so un-Trump-like, the enunciation so correct, the tone so flat, could this have been a White house produced deep fake?

 

 

 

 

Nar. Its not a turnaround. Its not a feeble sorry. Its about him fighting the trial, so its all about me, and thus, 100% genuine.

Could they not just reverse all of that on day one if they wanted to ??

 

 

Thats what I thought. Biden reverses it, signals that this isn't a back down, its just a reversal of another Trump fault. But while we disagree on a lot, we can talk about it if you like. We both know that talks won't amount to a lot, but its a step.

 

Sorta a win:win I would have thought.

OK, so I am evil dictator. Trump stabs me in back, Biden pulls knife out. Am I supposed to feel grateful? Why should I trust Biden any more than Trump? They are both American enemy. Who's to say next president in four years won't be worse for me than Trump? I have absolutely no reason whatsoever to give a flying f what any of them do unless they do something to keep me in power.

Alternate reality prediction:

 

On 19 January, Trump will embark on farewell flight across country with cronies and supporters in Air Force 1. He will then command the pilots to fly to Russia, where he will request asylum and be welcomed by a grateful Putin, who will award him a Hero medal.

 

 

"Da, orange borscht-head has landed. Do we have old Hero of Soviet Union medal lying around? He will not know difference".

The Dispatch: Understanding the Ban on Parler

The social media site lost access to Google and Apple's app stores and Amazon Web Services suspended its services.

The social media platform Parler launched in 2018 as an alternative to Twitter, aimed mostly at users who believe that other social media outlets censor conservatives. Founder John Matze promised that the site would be dedicated to free speech, and its community guidelines state that “our mission is to create a social platform in the spirit of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.”

The “spirit of the First Amendment” phrasing is a dig at Twitter, which has long banned users for content that violates its terms of service. In 2016, Twitter banned Milo Yiannopoulos for repeated violations, including racist posts directed at comedian Leslie Jones. In 2018, the site banned “proud Islamophobe” Laura Loomer. And, of course, President Donald Trump lost his Twitter account on Friday night.

Now, after users used the platform to incite violence leading up to and during the storming of the Capitol and advanced unhinged claims about covert operations to keep Trump in the White House, Parler finds itself homeless.

Warnings to the company to implement policies to better moderate its own content were largely ignored. Parler removed a post last week from Lin Wood, the pro-Trump lawyer and conspiracy theorist, after Wood called for the execution of Vice President Mike Pence. “Get the firing squads ready. Pence goes FIRST,” Wood posted.

It was too late. On Friday Google removed its app from the Google Play store; Apple followed suit the next day. Users could still access Parler via a web browser, but just before midnight Sunday, Amazon Web Services cut off the site’s access to its servers.

Exactly. If the leaders of any other country have half a brain, they're not going to trust another American president any further than the remainder of their term at best. It will take decades for the US to regain the trust they used to have even with their allies.

It's schadenfreude time!  Enjoy! ...   😉

 


The Washington Post -
The president as pariah: Trump faces a torrent of retribution over his role in the U.S. Capitol siege

 

today

 


He has been banned on social media, shunned by foreign leaders, impeached (again) in the House, threatened with censure by Republicans, deserted by Cabinet members, turned on by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), canceled by his hometown of New York City, dropped by the PGA golf tour and snubbed by New England Patriots Coach Bill Belichick.

 

And that’s just in the past few days for President Trump, who after ruling Washington for nearly four years through a mix of bullying, intimidation, patronage and a sense that his willingness to spread falsehoods and misinformation would have no consequences is suddenly facing a torrent of retribution from those who long excused his behavior or were too scared or powerless to confront it.

 

The fallout on Trump for his role in riling up thousands of supporters in a speech ahead of their deadly siege on the U.S. Capitol last week has intensified quickly - leaving the world’s most powerful leader as a pariah in many quarters, more isolated than ever. ...

There has to be a die hard movie in there somewhere surely, Bruce has gotta do at least one more and nothing would be more perfect than the storming of the capital.
