Welcome to Liberty Nation’s Daily Snapshot. All the top news of the day, the latest polls, and more.
- Carter Page, who served briefly as a volunteer adviser to the 2016 Trump campaign and was put under surveillance by the FBI, is suing the Bureau and the Department of Justice. The FBI claims to have suspected Page of being a Russian agent, but he was never charged with a crime. The Bureau may have fraudulently obtained a warrant to spy on Mr. Page.
- According to some media reports, President Trump is thinking of holding a 2024 campaign rally on or around Inauguration Day 2021, should he fail in his bid to win a second term.
- Senate Republicans are already preparing to block potential Biden administration picks. In reference to individuals who have been talked about in the media for cabinet positions, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) tweeted: “What a group of corporatists and war enthusiasts – and #BigTech sellouts.”
- After the Supreme Court slapped down New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s restrictions on houses of worship, CNN described the decision as a “scientifically illiterate” one that would “cost lives.” The network said nothing about the thousands who died after Cuomo forced nursing homes to take in COVID-infected seniors.
- Going for Olympic gold in virtue-signaling, Hayes Brown for MSNBC writes: “‘Personal responsibility’ is no match for American selfishness.” That’s right: unless you conform and disregard all thoughts of individual choice, you are a terrible person, unlike Saint Brown.
- The Financial Times, the globalists’ newspaper of choice, says: “Those who get vaccinated deserve more freedom.” Reverse that, and the direct implication is that anyone who refuses a COVID-19 vaccine should be subjected to certain – presumably permanent – restrictions.
Republicans are disgusted with the election result that came out of Georgia and the sham recount. So much so that many are reportedly planning to boycott the all-important January runoffs for two Senate seats. A lot of voters believe these races will be rigged in favor of Democrats, as they believe the presidential election was. “It hasn’t been decided,” Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told voters. “This is the key. It’s not decided. So if you lose your faith and you don’t vote, and people walk away, that will decide it.”
President Trump’s detractors are not at all happy about his latest remark concerning the election results currently being reported. The president recently tweeted: “Biden can only enter the White House as President if he can prove that his ridiculous ‘80,000,000 votes’ were not fraudulently or illegally obtained.” Trump is suggesting his opponent is guilty until proven innocent, and leftists on social media and in the establishment media are outraged. Yet, this is the standard Trump-haters applied to the president for four years. It was the standard applied to Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court confirmation hearings. Indeed, it is how the political left always judges its enemies: everyone is guilty unless and until they can prove themselves innocent. Mr. Trump has merely used his opponents’ own rule against them.
A thought for the day from history’s most interesting thinkers.
The only real prison is fear, and the only real freedom is freedom from fear.
