Curiously, this went down before the Justice Department's Office of the Inspector General requested the devices when beginning its own investigation into the origins of the Russia investigation and special counsel's activities that illegitimately targeted President Trump and his associates based on a discredited dossier paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign.

That's the message that needs to be sent to voters now that Joe Biden has tapped Kamala Harris, an ultra-far-left progressive, to be his running mate. Harris' record and actions illustrate she cannot be trusted with power. And, given Biden's advanced age and cognitive decline, it's no secret the former California prosecutor will be running the country if elected, not bumbling Biden. </p> <p>If the thought of that very real scenario doesn't send a chill up your spine, it should. <p>Updated: Fri Aug 14, 2020</p> 41b12e50d4f4576ec2c1089dd338c179 It's Time to Break Up Big Tech for 07/31/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/adriana-cohen/07/20/its-time-to-break-up-big-tech Fri, 31 Jul 2020 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Monopolistic companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Apple and others have become far too powerful. They thwart competition and abuse their power, whether it's by failing to protect users' privacy and data or controlling one of our most basic freedoms &#8212; free speech &#8212; in hopes of influencing, if not, swaying elections. These actions warrant congressional intervention, especially given Silicon Valley's well-known political bias against conservatives &#8212; including the president of the United States of America. President Donald Trump's tweets are routinely "fact-checked" and censored, for example, while his political opponents are not. </p> <p>This rigged system has far-reaching consequences that, among other things, shape public opinion and culture and taint America's standing in the world &#8212; while diminishing our collective rights. </p> <p>Take Apple. If you ask Siri what "demon" means, she says "an evil spirit or devil, especially one thought to possess a person or act as a tormentor in hell." The second definition Siri offers is "a cruel, evil, or destructive person or thing." Now, brace yourself for Siri's third definition &#8212; a police officer. <p>Updated: Fri Jul 31, 2020</p> c23e463f4beafc697c00b30e3498ca45 Time for Twitter CEO to Testify for 07/24/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/adriana-cohen/07/20/time-for-twitter-ceo-to-testify Fri, 24 Jul 2020 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>It's high time to haul Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in to testify before Congress.

If he's not reined in, then he may succeed in making Trump a one-term president.</p> <p>Here's why. One of the most important things an incumbent needs to secure reelection is a strong economy, but due to the radical lockdown and months-long national quarantine Fauci championed in March to mitigate the pandemic, the U.S. economy was dealt a devastating blow, resulting in 46 million Americans losing their jobs. So, now, instead of the president galloping into the November election leading one of the hottest economies on record, he's trudging to the ballot box hoping the economy will recover quickly enough.<p>Updated: Fri Jun 19, 2020</p> bb7c51d72c83857ee99ce1114418dc3a Free Speech Under Fire for 06/12/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/adriana-cohen/06/20/free-speech-under-fire Fri, 12 Jun 2020 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>One of the biggest threats facing America today isn't beyond the water's edge; it's censorship spreading like a wildfire coast to coast: a perilous endangerment to free speech, a free press and artistic expression that should alarm every American &#8212; I don't care how you vote. </p> <p>It's well known that Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other social media networks are silencing political speech and any content they simply don't like.
