Twitter's permanent suspension of Donald Trump was among the most startling decisions in both the platform's history and that of social media at large. Citing its concerns that the former president risked inciting further violence in the wake of the January 6 riots, the move led to the birth of Trump's Truth Social platform and provoked global discussions about online censorship.

Dana White can promote a fight. He can also promote a candidate. The UFC president praised Donald Trump in a fiery Republican National Convention as a hard worker, loyal, and displaying great business instincts. “In 2001, my partners [Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta] and I bought the UFC, and it was basically considered a bloodsport,” White, characteristically without a tie, told the dressed-up convention. “State athletic commissions didn’t support us. Arenas around the world refused to host our events. Nobody took us seriously. Nobody. Except Donald Trump.” White noted that Trump hosted the first two events the UFC staged under the group led by White and the Fertittas. The group bought the business for $2 million back then. They sold it for $4 billion earlier this month. White did not mention Trump’s more direct foray into the world of mixed-martial arts (MMA), which displayed less than great business instincts. Trump owned a major stake in Affliction Entertainment, which … [Read more...] about UFC President Dana White: ‘Donald Trump Is a Fighter’

Emmer, the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) which oversees House GOP elections, told Breitbart News exclusively that Trump has been a “tremendous partner” to House Republicans in their push to fire Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi once and for all. “President Trump has been a tremendous partner in our efforts to fire Nancy Pelosi and we are very pleased to see him making investments in the midterms,” Emmer told Breitbart News. “The American people are fed up with Joe Biden and Democrats’ record of rising prices, lawless cities, and a southern border that has been completely overrun by drug cartels.” Emmer’s statement comes on the heels of news late last week that Trump plans to unlock and unload millions of dollars he has stored in his Save America PAC … [Read more...] about House GOP Campaign Chief Thanks Trump for Investing in Midterms
After a new member of Donald Trump 's legal team was allegedly "sidelined" in the investigation into sensitive documents seized from the former president's Mar-a-Lago home, some legal experts weighed in on the potential reasons for the shift. Legal scholar Laurence Tribe tweeted Tuesday afternoon that he wondered if Trump had "yanked" a $3 million fee he'd reportedly agreed to pay Chris Kise. "Or maybe he never actually paid Kise up front?" Tribe added. "Either way, quitting seems the only smart move Kise made since signing on with Trump." Former federal prosecutor and CNN legal analyst Jennifer Rodgers asked if the shift in Kise's role meant that his team anticipates Trump might be charged soon in a Georgia investigation into his actions following the 2020 presidential election. "Would make sense for Kise to lead the GA case defense with his state law experience and Trusty to stay on the fed case," Rodgers said, referring to another Trump lawyer, James Trusty . … [Read more...] about Why did Trump bench Chris Kise, his newest legal-team add?

Actor-comedian Patton Oswalt promoted a petition calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump in an essay published Friday. “There is no firm, guiding hand on the tiller of statecraft, the economy, diplomacy, or infrastructure. There is puerile, adolescent emotion and momentary libidinal pleasure,” Patton Oswalt wrote in an essay published on McSweeny’s. “And the rest is up to us. We march in the streets, we petition our representatives, we raise money and signal-boost fundraisers for the weak, vulnerable, and unlucky.” “Trump’s presidency assumes we’ll fend for ourselves when we’re flooded, burned, earthquaked or tornadoed by life. Help isn’t coming after the crash. We’re on our own.” – @pattonoswalt #OneSmallBlowAgainstTotalitarianism https://t.co/8sprVcdgcy — Timothy McSweeney (@mcsweeneys) August 24, 2018 The Secret Life of Pets 2 star wrote that Americans who “support the bullies,” i.e. Trump and his administration, can “fuck right off.” “Because … [Read more...] about Patton Oswalt Promotes Impeachment Petition: Trump Supporters Can ‘F*ck Right Off’
Doug Mastriano, the Donald Trump -endorsed Republican candidate for Pennsylvania governor, held a rally outside the State Capitol in Harrisburg over the weekend that was attended by just a few dozen people. Mastriano, a far-right election denier who was present at the "stop the steal" protest in Washington, D.C., on January 6, spoke at the sparsely attended event on Saturday in front of around 50 to 60 people. According to The New York Times , about half of those who watched Mastriano speak were volunteers from his own campaign team. The low attendance was seen as a for Mastriano's struggling attempt to win over voters ahead of November's midterms. The Republican has been heavily outspent by his Democratic rival Josh Shapiro in terms of campaign funding, with Mastriano not paying for any television ads for several months. Crucially, Shapiro is also beating Mastriano in all recent polls, including by double digits in some cases. A Marist poll conducted between September … [Read more...] about Trump-backed Mastriano sees rally attended by just dozens of people
