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.

Yet, due to the coronavirus pandemic that spurred nationwide lockdowns in March, American schools closed their doors. Since then, most of our nation's 57 million children in grades K-12 have been isolated at home, cut off from face-to-face human contact, friends, sports, school activities and normal life. </p> <p>This cruel and unusual punishment cannot continue indefinitely, especially since it's well-known that the coronavirus mostly affects the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions &#8212; not children. So though the main reason for justifying the mass closure of America's schools is to protect children, our kids are not a high-risk group. Does that warrant this radical upheaval to their lives? Does that warrant the impact on millions of parents nationwide who can't pay their bills and feed their families because they can't go to work with children at home?<p>Updated: Fri May 08, 2020</p> d4150d8954c3a7707ed19e2f11a0c22d A Life Saved Today Is Another Life Lost Tomorrow for 05/01/2020 https://www.creators.com/read/adriana-cohen/04/20/a-life-saved-today-is-another-life-lost-tomorrow Fri, 01 May 2020 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Something must be conveyed to short-sighted government officials who continue to confine Americans to their homes with extended lockdown orders to mitigate COVID-19: To date, they have destroyed over 30 million jobs, decimated businesses and entire industries and violated a basic human right &#8212; freedom. </p> <p>Not to mention all our other rights enshrined in the U.S. Constitution that are being flagrantly violated by power-thirsty governors and other officials in the name of containing the spread of the coronavirus. Our right to worship, assemble and the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness &#8212; and so much more &#8212; have all been tossed out the window. </p> <p>However justified &#8212; or not, depending on who you ask &#8212; the reality is that the lockdown means urgent care medical facilities in Massachusetts and elsewhere aren't seeing patients. Millions of Americans aren't going to doctor or having elective surgeries performed. But that's not all. An alarming and growing list of hospitals throughout the country have laid off ten of thousands of health care workers or closed their doors for good &#8212; all of which comes at a hefty price.
