1 – CLAIM: McConnell signals to GOP Trump conviction is a conscience vote
Bloomberg reports: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is signaling to fellow Republicans that the final vote on Donald Trump’s impeachment is a matter of conscience and that senators who disputed the constitutionality of the trial could still vote to convict the former president, according to three people familiar with his thinking.

The Kentucky Republican has also suggested that he hasn’t made up his mind how he’ll vote, two of the people said, even though he voted Tuesday to declare it unconstitutional for the Senate to hear the case against a former president.

That position is starkly different than McConnell’s declaration at the start of Trump’s first impeachment trial last year, that he did not consider himself an impartial juror.

It’s highly unlikely that the Senate will convict Trump of the House’s single impeachment charge of inciting an insurrection, which cited the former president’s actions surrounding the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

DML: Drain the swamp!

2 – Dems Play Trump’s Remarks at Impeachment Trial But Leave Out Call to ‘Peacefully and Patriotically Make Your Voices Heard’
Breitbart reports: Democrats played a deceptively edited video of former President Donald Trump’s speech on January 6, 2020, at the beginning of the impeachment trial on Tuesday, leaving out his call for supporters to “peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”

The video was edited to make it l0ok as if Trump had urged supporters to go and violently breach the Capitol building. The video shows Trump saying, “We’re going to walk down and I’ll be there with you. We’re going to walk down…to the Capitol.”

The video then cuts to supporters yelling, “Let’s take the Capitol!” and “We are going to the Capitol!” It then cuts to people trying to get past fence barriers, and then to an earlier part of Trump’s speech where he said in regards to his fight against the election results, “we fight like hell.”

The video then says: “President Trump ends his speech and urges his mob to move toward the Capitol.”

Here’s what Democrats left out:

DML: Well, of COURSE they left that out!  Despicable!

3 – GOP senator flips on impeachment trial, rips Trump lawyers
The Associated Press reports: Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana joined Democrats in voting against ending Donald Trump’s impeachment trial Tuesday, a surprise reversal that Cassidy said was a response to the former president’s lawyers doing “a terrible job” of arguing their case.

Cassidy was among six Republican senators who sided with Democrats on the question of whether a former president can be tried after leaving office. The Louisiana senator’s position was a switch from January, when he voted to end the proceedings on the grounds that they were unconstitutional.

The vote drew swift criticism from Republicans in the senator’s deeply conservative state. But Cassidy said Trump’s attorneys didn’t make their case. While the Democrats’ impeachment managers were “focused, they were organized,” relying on precedent and legal scholars, Trump’s team “was disorganized, random, had nothing,” he said.

The list of Republicans who have sided with Democrats now stands as follows:

  • Maine Sen. Susan Collins
  • Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski
  • Utah Sen. Mitt Romney
  • Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse
  • Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey
  • Lousiana Sen. Bill Cassidy

DML: Again, drain the swamp!!

4 – Psaki says schools with in-person classes ‘one day a week’ count as reopened
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked Tuesday to clarify President Joe Biden’s plan to reopen K-8 schools within 100 days of his presidency.

At an afternoon press conference, a reporter asked Psaki to “help us understand” the White House’s or the president’s definition of “open school.”

“Does it mean teachers in classroom teaching students in classrooms or does it just mean kids in classrooms with a remote screen? Help us understand,” he asked.

Psaki replied, “His [Biden] goal that he set is to have the majority of schools, so more than 50%, open by day 100 of his presidency, and that means some teaching in classrooms. So, at least one day a week. Hopefully it’s more.”

DML: I have no words… just no words. Are we living in a circus?

5 – Boeing to Outsource 600 U.S. Tech Jobs While Expanding Production in India
Breitbart reports: The Boeing Company is outsourcing 600 American information technology (IT) jobs to Dell Technologies, which regularly imports foreign visa workers, while expanding its production base in India.

This month, Boeing executives announced that they would be outsourcing hundreds of IT jobs to Dell Technologies — about 10 percent of the company’s IT employees — as it intends to lay off 11,000 of its employees this year after laying off 20,000 last year.

Dell, which will absorb some of Boeing’s IT work, has a record of outsourcing American jobs to imported foreign visa workers through the H-1B visa program. Through one of its many subsidiaries, Dell sought to bring 600 H-1B foreign visa workers to the U.S. this year to take American jobs at an average salary of $119,000.

Between 2018 and 2020, Dell sought to import nearly 1,700 H-1B foreign visa workers to take American jobs at average salaries ranging from $109,000 to $119,000.

While Boeing outsources hundreds of jobs to Dell, the company is expanding its production capacity in India after one of its manufacturers in China was put on a U.S. blacklist for its ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

DML: There goes more American jobs. Thanks a lot, Joe Biden.

6 – Mark Cuban confirms Mavericks are no longer playing national anthem at home games
Fox News reports: Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban confirmed to The Athletic that it was his decision to no longer play the national anthem prior to home games at American Airlines Center. The Mavericks haven’t played the national anthem prior to home games this season, and the team doesn’t plan on playing it for the foreseeable future.

The Mavericks, who have an 11-14 record, have played 12 games at their home arena this season. They haven’t played the national anthem in any of their 13 preseason games, as well as those 12 regular-season matchups, including Monday’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, which was the first game with a small number of fans in the stands.

7 – Google Quietly Escalates Manual Search Censorship
Breitbart reports: Google has quietly escalated censorship of its market-dominating search engine, adding a range of new topics where human moderators are allowed to manually penalize websites, suppressing them in search results.

If a website is affected by one of these manual acts of censorship, “some or all of that site will not be shown in Google search results,” according to the tech giant.

The list, published in full on Google’s support website, includes the following:

  • Discover policy violation: Adult-themed content
  • News and Discover policy violation: Dangerous content
  • News and Discover policy violation: Harassing content
  • News and Discover policy violation: Hateful content
  • News and Discover policy violation: Manipulated media
  • News and Discover policy violation: Medical content
  • Discover policy violation: Misleading content
  • News and Discover policy violation: Sexually explicit content
  • News and Discover policy violation: Terrorist content
  • News policy violation: Transparency
  • News and Discover policy violation: Violence and gore content
  • News and Discover policy violation: Vulgar language and profanity

Publishers who have been hit with a manual action by Google will be able to appeal the decision by “fixing” whatever issue violated the policy and then submitting their website to Google for a review. Google states that it could take “several days or a week” for the tech giant to reach a final decision.

  1. It continues to amaze me that people are ignoring facts and siding with the left! As for Mark Cuban – he wants public attention

  2. That is disgusting. And this man considered running for president. He would have gotten rid of our flag as well. No one should support this man or this team ever. Hate basketball anyway

    • I agree 100% with you. Don’t watch or support anything Mark Cuban does. His shark tank; Mavericks; anything else he dies. Totally un-American idiot!

  3. I no longer watch any sports. They are off my pastime list of things to do. Why? I have better ways to spend my money and my time. Mark Cuban is and always will be a jerk.

    Why are people still using google as a search engine? There so many others like duck duck go.

  4. While I no longer watch NFL games, not playing the National anthem does not fix the problem-it ignores it & deprives people of the pleasure of hearing the anthem. I think players should be fined if they kneel but that will never happen.

  5. Eliminating the National Anthem won’t help the team in any meaningful way. Jamming BLM down patriotic American’s throats will come back to bite Mark Cuban in the butt. This “Shark” needs a new cause!

  6. Mark Cuban can just sit back in his high backed chair and watch his basketball team fall. Texans are a proud bunch and I for one (and probably many more) will boycott his precious Mavericks. Never cared for the pompous ass anyway.

  7. I think it’s very Un – American that The Mavericks are not going to play the National Anthem at their home games. If I lived there, I would boycott the games.

  8. I hope the seats stay empty. More America hate coming from people who have never been oppressed and make more money for one game than the average person will make in a lifetime!

  9. Mark Cuban is an arrogant jacka**! I only watch college basketball and once they start kneeling they are done. Cuban is only appealing to his ignorant, wealthy players. I bet more than half of his players don’t even know the words to the National Anthem, but they make lots of money. It’s just disgraceful to our country and especially the men and women fighting for their freedoms. Pitiful!

  10. I don’t like Mark Cuban. He’s an arrogant a$$hole. It’s un-American not to play the national anthem at sports events. He’s part of the problem turning this country to communism. 😠

  11. GOOGLE’S response is a big problem.
    Their manipulation of the search function is going.a step too far.
    There are many search engines like DuckDuckGo& Bing to name two that will give much better results, but many people don’t know about them.
    Some, out of habit or laziness continue using Google.
    Maybe it’s time to start shouting the fact there are alternatives.

  12. Totally disgusting! I hardly watch sports anymore and I use to love watching them. Once they started using them as a venue for politics I stopped. Same with the Oscars, Grammys and all the rest.

  13. JB has shown he doesn’t care one iota about the American people. He is trying to turn US into a giant welfare state.
    Imagine that!
    The largest, most inventive, most hard working, productive country on earth being relegated to the lowest rung on the international ladder!
    He and his masters truly HATE AMERICA!
    How much longer will you sit there and take the money while your country is being sold off, one piece at a time?

  14. I don’t use google as a search engine anymore. DuckDuckGo.
    Biden on school openings – it’s back to (lying) politics as usual.
    Mark Cuban on national anthem. The Russian national anthem works better for basketball. Possibly Chinese’s but I’m not familiar with that. They should pull down the statue of Naismith of course. Just to be sure.

  15. Hey is China running our government, cause it is starting to feel that way. I guess truth doesn’t matter any more. Does anybody notice the steady climb in gas prices, I hope so because it is going to get worse so bee ready. Remember Democrats you voted for this or at least it appears that way.

  16. I knew there was something about this idiot that I did not like. He needs to take his sorry ass to another country. But sounds like to me he’s part of the left!!

  17. As far as sports, I gave them up when politics came into the game, can’t stand even listening to them.
    I stopped watching NFL way before that when the Oilers left Houston.
    I used to love watching Hockey, but that is over now too. Wrestling was fun once in a while, but you won’t catch me at a match ever again.
    I used to watch Boxing, it’s off my list as well as MMA.
    My son is a 3rd degree black belt, a Sensei in multiple martial arts, so I used to enjoy going to a local match once in a while. So proud of him!
    Not even one sport is worth watching now.

  18. This whole plot is getting old. I don’t feel american anymore. I am disgusted with all the hype that Trump won and will be back. OK well is he or not? This satanic cult that we have in the fake studio oval office they need to be wiped out. They have been exposed so take action. As far as not playing this nations attempt is such a disgrace and not saying the Pledge of Allegiance in schools…. I am speechless and scared for this country. Please tell me we have hope and this will turn around. They have too. I have family and I am in fear for my kid’s future.

  19. Less fans, less profit, disrespecting America eventually that POS will fell the pinch, hopefully it will be too late for him and the NBA

  20. All of these teams, athletes, actors and business owners know they will never be hurt by consumers because majority of people will forever need them. I’m probably the only proud (immigrant) American who has principles.

    I don’t buy tickets to games of any kind. I don’t even watch television, movies or even listen to music.
    How do I manage this? By having hobbies and pets to enjoy my free time and creating my own memories.

  21. America WAS THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD…… until Obama was elected president. He hates Americans with a passion. The super bowl was the most patriotic event in the world. Everyone respected the flag, the military singing the national anthem, loved the military flyovers… until the uneducated voters voted for him.

  22. Boycott Maverick games & Shark Tank! Mark Cuban made millions & became part of the Swamp & Corruption in this country! He is an arrogant traitor!

  23. Cuban won’t play our anthem but he will gladly take Americans money! Another traitor! Get out of the USA Cuban! You don’t deserve the RIGHT to live here!!!

  24. I had previously thought Mark Cuban was an intelligent and patriotic individual. However, it is painfully obvious he is more concerned about his bank account than the country that afforded him the opportunity to accumulate his wealth. It is amazing how “Low individuals will stoop” to make more money. He has proven his ability to scrape the bottom of the barrel.

  25. Shame on him !!! His Grandparents are rolling over in their graves totally ashamed. They all came over here from Russia and Romania of Jewish Descent…. emigrating through Ellis Island. I’m sure that they, along with others coming through Ellis Island off of boats that took days to get here….. kissed the ground to be here in the wonderful USA. The USA that have them the opportunity to be free & to work hard to give Mark his education and opportunities to get him where he is today. Where else in this world would he be so successful or wealthy ?? Certainly not in Russia or Romania ! Bottom line….. he’s Ungrateful and spoiled.

  26. i live in dallas area and am disgusted with people trying to distance themselves from America and being ungrateful for american freedoms and opportunities. It’s good to be proud of America. We are blessed amazingly here.

  27. My kids have been in-person since they started back to school in August (K-12). The first 6 weeks were rough with kids in and out but the school authorities prevailed and didn’t back down. Here we are almost 7 months in with no active COVID cases in months even when the numbers were so high in our community. Some of the staff got hit hard at first but they all healed up just fine. Kids mental health at their private schools are WAY better than public who are just now going back or had hybrid. If kids are happy; parents are happy. Parents had so much less stress with them being back in person. God bless the teachers that pushed through those first few weeks and kept our children happy and healthy.

  28. I was an avid Patriots fan and Brady fan.But with all the political opinions attempted to be shoved down my throat,I have not watched one Patriots game.Although I am happy for Tom Brady to win his seventh super bowl I might have watched a total of 2 minutes just to check the score.Sad the way things are now.Backwards.

  29. All we can do is to keep the short list of solid Republican Congress and Senate representatives in our pockets. Keep the list up front and center from now until the next elections and then vote the swamp creatures out. (The short list is easier to keep than the long list of broken republicans who are republican by label only) Yes, we are truly living in a circus.
    The dems are doing a great job keeping the public attention in a frenzy ranting about things that don’t matter in the big picture or slow the real progress, like all of their ridiculous impeachment/collusion hoax’s, fussing over the 3% of the USA population who are transgender/gay (I may not be using the correct terms here these days), the proper new vocabulary of the woke, cancel culture mob, BLM and Antifa criminals, ranting over who’s feelings got hurt today, etc. In the mean time behind the big curtain they are killing our economy, opening our boarders to give free benefits to the new dem voter hopefuls, creating new states to increase dem electoral votes, dumping billions of dollars into ridiculous climate change hoaxes, the WHO, etc.
    And the beat goes on… Just sickening.

    • And a bigger problem than the entire election, is our loss of freedom of speech and censorship that nobody’s talking about in the main stream

  30. I’m sure this makes our vets and law enforcement people feel really great.. Cuban is such an idiot… Its really unbelievable how much of this crap is accepted as just fine now… The country is gone…

  31. Maybe Cuban should take his boys and play in a country he likes better and that will support them in the fashion they have become accustom to. In the meantime any and all Americans should turn off, tune out, and retract support immediately.

  32. Forget Mark Cuban…now he has shown what he really thinks of America & all the advantages afforded to him by this very country! Nothing but a disgrace!! I hope the “woke” folks begin to “buy-cott” any merch from his team…we have the power of our dollars & do NOT buy a ticket to see his shitshow!!

  33. I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one NATION, under God, invisible, with liberty and justice for all.

  34. My guess is more and more “un-American” people (and there are MANY in this country) will gladly fill those empty seats, just to be spiteful and prove their hateful point. I hope I’m wrong cause I’d love nothing more than to see them lose money and ratings. Cuban is nothing but an arrogant, pompous a**.

  35. Regarding Google, I use Duckduckgo browser on my phone instead of Google for searches and turned off as much Google related content and notifications as possible. Need to do the same with my home laptop as well.

  36. So Mark Cuban makes billions under the flag, and then spits on it and all the people who died for it….? Good way to cripple your business. Might be rich, but he’s flat broke in his character. Congratulations

  37. Dennis, my CBD gummies order was returned to you by our post office because it had 2 address labels on it, 1 to me in Marshall, MO & the other to someone in Ohio. I have emailed you several times with no response. Please resend my order. I need my gummies!
    Wendy Leslie

  38. Garbage dump rules the country…
    we are wiser than pedo Joe and Cuban…
    What do they have in their brain…???
    We are wiser and fairer than Senate.. Congress.. and Highest Court…
    We create the American State…so many
    patriots..stick together…
