I’m not allowed to say the election was stolen so I won’t say it was stolen, because I don’t want to wind up tomorrow morning in prison.” ~Ben Stein

On the last episode of The World According To Ben Stein; Ben Stein, Judah Friedman, and Ben Boychuck welcomed senior advisor for the Quincy Instituteand contributing editor at Responsible Statecraft, Kelly Beaucar Vlahos. To talk about the Trump impeachment trials, foreign policy, and the unsureness that the majority of Americans are forced to contend with on an almost daily basis. Kelly has spent the majority of the past two decades in Washington, DC writing and reporting on subjects including, civil liberties, US foreign policy national security, politics, veteran affairs, and more for The American Conservative magazine, where she worked as the executive editor, and the co-host of the Empire Has No Clothes Podcast.

“The language that’s being used, I feel is a setup for another war on terror, but it’s on half the population.” ~Kelly Beaucar Vlahos

Kelly talked about the fact that 75 million Americans “Sense that something’s at stake,” and all the talk about healing the country during the Inauguration was the exact opposite of what’s been happening for the past four years, and what we can expect in the next four years from the Biden Administration and the left, due to their unending impeachment efforts and unfair treatment of Conservatives and the right. She also shared her heartbreak over the break-in and the physical confrontations with police outside Capitol Building.

Ben Stein told us of his time in Washington and his first hand experiences with the left and their constant efforts to divide the country by any means possible, but primarily racially, and how their bitterness and anger is continuing to drive them even today. He explained that President Trump did in fact encourage people to protest and speak their minds, but to do it peacefully, and exclaims his disgust with the naming of the trespassing as an insurrection.

“This was not an insurrection, it was a bad, bad thing but an insurrection would have been if they had seize the Capitol. They did not seize the Capitol.” ~Ben Stein

Judah asked why nobody on the left is talking about the woman who was shot and killed during the so called “insurrection,” and why there is no investigation into her shooting at all. He asked the panel their thoughts on how we got to the point where 75 million Americans feel they’ve been silenced, suffocated to death by the left, and what we can do to combat them in the future.

Ben Boychuck gave his thoughts on the so called “insurrection” at the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021, and how there was a clear difference between the people who went into the Senate chamber and wandered around, broke a few windows and did some minor property damage, then left peacefully when a single Capitol Police Officer asked them to. That’s in shear contrast to what the politicians and pundit class are trying to say about it. He also gave a great brief on how we as conservatives should be smart, engaged, and carefully & cautiously watch new legislation that is being presented and what’s happing with the impeachment trial of President Trump. 

“Let’s not be afraid, and let just be watchful and be prudent.” ~Ben Boychuck

For finally, and my new favorite part of the show, Ben Stein sang “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” and it was spectacular.

Inside The World According To Ben Stein: Episode 138

Thursday, January 21, 2021, 7:00 PM PST/10:00 PM EST, with former Fox News executive and the head of Media Action Network, Ken LaCorte

Rock Breath Jan 22, 2021

“Spend your day in gratitude and you’ll have a great day!” ~Ben Stein

On the last episode of The World According To Ben Stein; Ben Stein, Judah Friedman, and Ben Boychuck were joined by former Fox News executive and the man behind Media Action Network, Ken LaCorte. 

For the first time, Judah took to the reins and gave the show something new by telling us a little bit about his experiences as a young Jew living in Jerusalem during extremely turbulent times of the assassination of Israeli’s Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. He also equates the division in political parties in the United States to the division and destruction of the Labor Party in Israel, more importantly the similarities to the speed in which the Labor Party was dissolved.

Ben Stein talked about his time in Washington as a high ranking Republican functionary and how after all of his time in DC, he could not name a match to the level of President Trumps energy and functionality within our government. He puts out a call to lawyers across the country to join him in the courts to help President Trump and defend Democracy everywhere, and most importantly he told us to never quit trying to make difference, and to ‘Give it the old college try.’ Which, for you youngsters out there that means, “To put forth one’s very best effort.”

Ken didn’t waste any time getting to some very interesting facts about the way the news is actually funneled throughout the world, and how the media uses Content Delivery Networks, or CDNs, to manage the flow of information to prevent denial-of-service attacks on Conservative media outlets that mainstream media and the majority of Silicon Valley work diligently to suppress. One of Media Action Network and Ken’s main goals is to help build up the “rightist fear” by creating a media-matters platform for the right.

Ben Boychuck, Managing Editor for America Greatness shared his thoughts on the possibility of a third political party or ‘Patriot Party’ lead by President Trump and what Republicans might decide to do about impeaching Trump to prevent him from ever being in a government office again. He explains how he has come to the point of going into old school print media, because of his completely legitimate fear of not knowing when big tech will try to silence him next.

In my opinion this episode was one of the most interesting and informative shows to date, so please be sure to click the image below and watch it on YouTube at The World According To Ben Stein. If you do you just might find, Ben Stein can do more than calculate numbers and look pretty for the camera, he can actually sing too. 

Take it away Mr. Stein…

Rush Limbaugh: Hundreds dead today ‘due to Biden’s mishandling of virus’

Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh on Thursday posted a headline on his website stating, “Hundreds dead so far from COVID-19 today due to President Biden’s mishandling of the virus.”
— Read on


FWD: Ok we had another Zoom with retired Generals, Colonels and also Lin Wood present. Here’s what they covered:

FWD: Ok we had another Zoom with retired Generals, Colonels and also Lin Wood present. Here’s what they covered:

Everyone is upset and impatient that no trigger has been pulled yet. But make no mistake, the President will do what is necessary to defend the constitution. Much is being done out of public view…
– 25,000 troops are now in DC, under the guise of riot control for the inauguration.
– More troops across the country – all major Democrat cities – are on standby which is 1hr recall.
– POTUS just designated Cuba as a terrorist state (relating to election interference)
– POTUS just delisted a number of Chinese companies from having business being done with them. 
– The recent blackouts in Italy (Vatican), Pakistan & Iran were from our Space Force – they temporarily took out parts of their power grid from up there. This was in preparation for war with China and Iran. Don’t panic! This isn’t conventional war with tanks and bombs and bullets – it’s cyber warfare including satellites that can knock out communications and data centers. If you ever wondered why the Space Force was instituted by POTUS a while back, it wasn’t just about going to Mars. It was for this. Other countries have satellites up there that can do stuff to us – we have them now too and they work. 
– There are now 250,000 Chinese troops surrounding us, 75,000 in Canada and the rest in Mexico. The generals said if they set foot in this country they will be wiped out swiftly as they are ready. (I know, this is scary but hang on everything will be fine)
– POTUS at the Wall in Texas yesterday was a signal to let China know he means business as a sign and that he is in charge. 
– POTUS will be getting in front of the people to produce evidence so the people know he is the real elected President. He may have to use the Emergency Alert System to do this in 2-3 days. When I give you a timeline or dates they can be disinformation given to us on purpose, so we will not be told the real dates as our calls are being listened into.

The Mayor of Oklahoma City was informed by POTUS on Monday via email that the Insurrection Act has been enacted and arrests will begin in that city. This is the first of many cities this will happen in. So we now have confirmation that the Insurrection Act is in place!
– DON’T BELIEVE THE MEDIA! It’s all optics. One Colonel noted that in war, it’s important to draw your enemy out in the open. POTUS has been doing EXACTLY that. Look at all the rats that have been revealing their true identity. POTUS has been separating the wheat from the chaff, especially these past 2 weeks.

This election was cyber warfare on our country. A paper was sent to the White House on the voting in 4 states that showed Chinese cyber attacks moving votes from Trump to Biden. They have proof of this now. This is a foreign country involved in our elections so this has been escalated from a domestic issue to an attack from a foreign enemy. This has moved from a constitutional voting issue to a national security issue now. 
– Covid was a biological attack on our country to shut down our economy and push the Mail-in Ballots Nationwide in order to pull off the steal along with the Dominion Machines

The virus was a man made Bio-weapon created in a Wuhan Lab  to take out as many of our elderly and the weak as possible to incite more fear globally. They needed the death counts to rise to continue their plan to take over our country. This is why every death was marked as a covid death regardless if they had it or not.

The Generals and Gen Flynn encouraged us all as Patriots to RESIST all across this country and yes Canada too.  Take off your Mask. Go to Church and Open your businesses. They can’t stop us when we all RESIST! There aren’t enough jail cells to hold everyone. Those were our orders to get the message out to the masses. There is no mandate in our Constitution Law to keep people from seeing each other or close their business.
– The Capitol Building attack was Antifa and BLM driven – all tactical deception as they call it in the military. It’s common practise.

Ok…. no one is getting nuked and you don’t need to take this at its worst. But you need to be prepared. There could be blackouts, internet down, cell phones down for short periods. Make sure you have ways to keep your food cold etc. if the power goes out, and don’t panic! Democrat controlled and big cities may be hit the worst because BLM & Antifa will riot and loot when Biden isn’t seated. That’s why the military is on standby. I know the number of Chinese troops around us is a scary thing but they are only coming in if Biden was seated. Then they would start the move on changing our country. It’s not a pretty thought. But that’s not happening. I know the Joint Chiefs put out a letter they are supporting the new President Biden on the 20th  – what else are they supposed to say right now? It’s all optics to keep things calm. Remember. If POTUS doesn’t stop this, he will be hunted down and arrested along with his entire family by the left. That’s a fact. And with him gone, our country is gone too. He knows this. He’s not going to sit there and do nothing. From now to the 19th is show time, we just don’t know exactly when.

So yes, we are in a full blown Military Operation right now to remove the threats and install our President back in power and control the violence in the big cities. Keep in mind, if the lights go out, and Biden is not President, it’s not China coming in here, it’s us knocking out the lights to weed out the bad guys. Massive arrests will be happening then.

On a side note, The Space Force has actually been around a long time, POTUS is the one that disclosed it to all of us. It used to be called the Secret Space Program. Remember when Rumsfeld announced $2 Trillion had gone missing and they don’t know where it went? He announced that the day before 9/11. The next day, a “plane” struck the Pentagon in the exact place where those files were kept. The money went to build the Secret Space Program. POTUS is using it to protect us.

Everything we are hearing and seeing in the news is all optics and the corrupters are in full PANIC in DC. This war is all about implementing the new Republic in order to introduce to the World a new currency that is Gold asset backed and run on the New Quantum Financial System which replaces the Central Banks and SWIFT.
209 Countries have signed on. (yes I know Google says there are 196 countries but the UN recognizes 251) SOS Mike Pompeo did the Satellite tests Monday via “Voice of America” to all 209 Countries with over 40 languages translating in real time. This has never been done before. This was a test to see how many Network channels would cover it and there wasn’t one.  They did it again the next day and they know that they can circumvent Big Tech to communicate with the USA and Canada (first priority) and the rest of the world using the new (EAS) Emergency Alert System.

Everything they are panicked about is the world finding out about their Pedophilia and Child Sex Trafficking Rings they have all profited from for decades. The President loves this country and loves the people and is committed to financially restore all that has been lost since Covid started. Today we have seen Executive orders for GA, PA, CT, UT and LA declaring them a State of Emergency for Disaster. This is for the Military to move into place which will be completed by tonite. The President is very patient and still holds all of the Trump Cards and they know it. He has cornered them all like rats in a corner.

Also keep in mind this is all unprecedented. We are in a war already – people being taken off Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and/or having 1,000’s of followers taken away if you have supported this Presindent or speak out against the lockdowns or vaccines. Even the President himself was silenced.

This is communism and it’s already here, this isn’t America… that’s why POTUS will fight. Try to be patient, and always remain calm.

What we need to do is share this to get the message out to Trust the Plan. As Lin Wood said… All Lies will be revealed, and the outcome will be Glorious.

We’re hearing that it will become hot around the 18th-19th.

Pro-Trump social media site Parler, booted by Amazon, takes step toward relaunching with Eastside firm

By Seattle Times business reporter

Katherine Khashimova Long Jan. 11, 2021

Hours after Amazon effectively scrubbed it from the internet, conservative social media network Parler is taking stumbling steps toward a relaunch. 

Parler filed suit Monday against Amazon in federal court in Seattle, contending the cloud-computing services provider violated antitrust law and breached the terms of its contract when it pulled the plug on Parler in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. That day, mobs loyal to President Donald Trump breached congressional chambers to demand lawmakers overturn the presidential election. Parler asked the judge for a temporary restraining order that would allow it to keep using Amazon’s web-hosting services.

The same day, Parler transferred its domain name to Sammamish-based Epik, which hosts the similar far-right social media network Gab. 

That’s not to say Parler lives again: The conservative Twitter competitor will still need to migrate its operations to a new hosting provider.

And Parler’s suit against Amazon got off to a bumbling start. The social network filed a day late, obviating its request for a temporary restraining order. Nor did it serve Amazon with its complaint, as court rules require. The judge ordered Parler to serve Amazon with the complaint before 5 p.m. Monday or risk having the case thrown out. As of 7 p.m. Monday, it remained unclear whether Parler had complied.

Tech giants took swift action to suspend or restrict social media accounts belonging to Trump and his supporters, saying those users had instigated the mayhem at the Capitol. The purge prompted many of those users to flee to Parler, which briefly became the No. 1 free app downloaded on Apple’s App Store, according to the lawsuit. 

Amazon terminated Parler’s accounts Sunday, saying the social network had violated its terms of service by inadequately policing content on the site. In its letter to Parler, Amazon included screenshots of posts advocating and glorifying violence against Trump opponents, and noted there had been a “steady increase” of such violent content on the social network. 

Parler accused Amazon of collaborating with Twitter, in violation of antitrust laws, to “kill Parler’s business — at the very time it is set to skyrocket,” according to the complaint.

“Because of AWS false claims, leaked to the public, Parler has not only lost current and future customers, but Parler has also been unable to find an alternative web-hosting company,” the company wrote in its complaint. “In short, AWS’ false claims have made Parler a pariah.”

But Parler’s move to Epik casts doubt upon that statement. The attorney representing Parler in the suit, Spokane-based David Groesbeck, could not be reached for comment. As of Monday evening, Groesbeck’s website redirected to an “under construction” page, but online reviews indicate he specializes in small business and property disputes. Several real estate holding companies and a tobacco import business are registered in his name.

Epik has emerged in recent years as a home for far-right websites, hosting conspiracy theory channel InfoWars and neo-Nazi site The Daily Stormer in addition to Gab.

Epik issued a lengthy and circuitous statement Sunday castigating Twitter and Facebook for suspending accounts of Trump and his supporters and drawing an equivalency between the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol and ongoing protests over police brutality, sparked by the death of George Floyd last summer.

“Without smarter discernment outside of a mob-based judgement [sic] of instant convenience, the decisions we make now may ultimately be utilized to reduce liberties that many take for granted,” the statement said.

In the same statement, however, Epik pointed to its own efforts to strip dangerous content from the internet. In 2018, Epik announced it would stop hosting far-right message board 8chan after law enforcement linked its users to three mass shootings.

Epik CEO Rob Monster, reached by phone Monday, declined to comment further on the statement, which was signed by the company’s senior vice president for communications, but said it was reflective of his viewpoints.

In October, the company posted a series of blog posts riddled with conspiracy theories after PayPal terminated the domain registrar’s account. The online payments processor said it could no longer bear the risk of working with Epik, Mashable reported at the time.

Parler CEO Matze Expects to be Down ‘Longer Than Expected’ After Amazon, Google, Apple Scare ‘Other Vendors’

Parler is likely to be down “longer than expected” due to vendors following the cue sent by Amazon, Google, and Apple, CEO John Matze said Monday.

“We will likely be down longer than expected,” Matze wrote in a statement. “This is not due to software restrictions — we have our software and everyone’s data ready to go. Rather it’s that Amazon’s, Google’s, and Apple’s statements to the press about dropping our access has caused most of our other vendors to drop their support for us as well.”

“Most people with enough servers to host us have shut their doors to us,” he added. “We will update everyone and update the press when we are back online.”

Matze had previously expressed hope that his company would be back in business by the end of the week.

Amazon, which Parler had used for hosting services, announced Saturday it would drop the website as a client before the end of the weekend. That decision came after Friday announcements by Apple and Google that those companies would evict Parler from their App stores if it failed to develop a plan for moderating user content, a request that Matze refused to accommodate.

The platform, which casts itself as a haven for social media users seeking free speech, has been under fire after Wednesday’s uprising at the Capitol for allegedly allowing users to threaten violence, most prominently from Georgia attorney Lin Wood, who has used the site to suggest an attack on Vice President Mike Pence.

“Every vendor, from text message services to email providers to our lawyers, all ditched us too, on the same day,” Matze said in a Sunday interview on Fox News. “We’re going to try our best to get back online as quickly as possible, but we’re having a lot of trouble because every vendor we talk to says they won’t work with us. Because if Apple doesn’t approve and Google doesn’t approve, then they won’t.”The post Parler CEO Matze Expects to be Down ‘Longer Than Expected’ After Amazon, Google, Apple Scare ‘Other Vendors’ first appeared on Mediaite.

Amazon Will Permanently Shutdown Free Speech Platform Parler’s Servers Sunday, January 10, 2021 At 12:00 AM MST

John Matze 🇺🇸 @John Saturday, January 9, 2021

Sunday (tomorrow) at midnight Amazon will be shutting off all of our servers in an attempt to completely remove free speech off the internet. There is the possibility Parler will be unavailable on the internet for up to a week as we rebuild from scratch. We prepared for events like this by never relying on amazons proprietary infrastructure and building bare metal products. We will try our best to move to a new provider right now as we have many competing for our business, however Amazon, Google and Apple purposefully did this as a coordinated effort knowing our options would be limited and knowing this would inflict the most damage right as President Trump was banned from the tech companies. This was a coordinated attack by the tech giants to kill competition in the market place. We were too successful too fast. You can expect the war on competition and free speech to continue, but don’t count us out. #speakfreely

If you haven’t already haven’t done so already… BAN and STOP using: Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook, Netflix, Pinterest, Twitter, Twitch, and very other business that does not support President Trump, Free Speech, freedom of information!

Parler’s CEO said Google’s decision to ban the app was a ‘horrible way to handle this.’ AOC has urged Apple to take similar action

  • After Google announced it was banning Parler, a social media network, from its app store for inciting violence, CEO John Matze said the ban was “a horrible way to handle this.” 
  • “If they actually cared, they would try to help. Not dump the app and send a break up public statement. What a horrible way to handle this,” Matze wrote on Friday. 
  • A Google spokesperson told Insider: “In light of this ongoing and urgent public safety threat, we are suspending the app’s listings from the Play Store until it addresses these issues.” 
  • Matze responded to Apple’s request for updates by saying: “Apparently they know what is best for you by telling you which apps you may and may not use.”

After Google announced it was banning Parler, an alternative social media network, from its app store for inciting violence in Washington, CEO John Matze late Friday said the ban was “a horrible way to handle this.” 

“Guess they arnt [sic] really concerned about the ‘violence’ that is against our rules anyway,” Matze posted on Parler. “If they actually cared, they would try to help. Not dump the app and send a break up public statement. What a horrible way to handle this.”

He said Google didn’t send its full complaint to Parler. 

Apple and Google were both seeking updates to Parler’s moderation policies. Google banned it on Friday, while Apple was waiting 24 hours for updates.

Favored by alt-right and conservative voices, the app surged to the top of App Store download lists in recent months, as Twitter and Facebook pushed back against harsh rhetoric by banning and suspending accounts. As of Saturday morning, more than 92,000 Parler posts used the hashtag #twexit. The company says it’s in favor of completely free speech.

As violent mobs ransacked the hallways of Congress on Wednesday, a chorus of Parler users called for violence. Several people died during the siege on the Capitol. Afterward, conspiracy theories about the riots spread quickly on the app. 

But Parler wasn’t responsible, Matze said. “Apparently they believe Parler is responsible for ALL user generated content on Parler,” he wrote in a Friday post.

Supporters of US President Donald Trump during the riot.

A Google spokesperson told Insider: “In light of this ongoing and urgent public safety threat, we are suspending the app’s listings from the Play Store until it addresses these issues.” 

Members of Congress called for investigations into Parler, along with Gab, an alternative.

“Several threads on mainstream platforms like Reddit and Twitter and alternative platforms friendlier to those on the far-right like Gab and Parler, contained content for weeks that specifically alluded to planning the violence that took place on January 6,” said Rep. Jennifer Wexton, in a statement.

On Twitter, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for Apple and Google to take action against the apps. 

Matze called the congresswoman hypocritical, saying she’d encouraged rioting from left-leaning protestors in the past. 

He posted a screenshot of an Apple App Store Review, displaying comments from Apple. The company asked for “immediate attention regarding serious App Store guideline violations,” saying that the app had incited violence and lawlessness. 

According the screenshot, Apple’s representative wrote: “Your CEO was quoted recently saying ‘But I don’t feel responsible for any of this and neither should the platform, considering we’re a neutral town square that just adheres to the law.’ We want to be clear that Parler is in fact responsible for all the user generated content present on your service and for ensuring that this content meets App Store requirements for the safety and protection of our users. We won’t distribute apps that present dangerous and harmful content.” 

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment. 

Matze said: “Apparently they know what is best for you by telling you which apps you may and may not use.” 

Parler also experienced outages in the days after the US Capitol surge.

Trump Campaign Banned From EMAILING Supporters After Being Suspended By Mail Service Provider

By Cassandra Fairbanks 
Published January 8, 2021 at 9:57pm 

The Trump campaign is now blocked from emailing their millions of supporters after being suspended by their email service provider.

The suspension comes shortly after President Donald Trump and his campaign were permanently banned from Twitter.

The email service, Campaign Monitor, confirmed the suspension of the account to Financial Times’ Dave Lee.

The Nationalist Review reports “the move effectively cuts off communication between his team and his core supporters. What is not clear however, is what other services have banned his team. The Trump campaign sends out a massive amount of emails—33 in January so far. But, it has been 48 hours since the campaign has reached out to its supporters via email, prompting most journalists to speculate that other providers have shut off access as well.”

TRENDING: BREAKING: Twitter Bans President Donald Trump — PERMANENTLY

In a statement, Campaign Monitor claimed that the campaign probably has other methods of sending emails to supporters.

“The self-service account associated with the Donald Trump Campaign has been suspended as of today, January 7th, 2021. Typically, political campaigns use multiple email service providers to send campaign, fundraising and other emails,” Campaign Monitor said in a statement about the ban. “Based on the low volume of emails that had been sent from the Campaign Monitor account, this is likely a very small portion of total email activity from the campaign.”
