January 19, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — A year ago, President Trump was riding high. Unemployment rates were at historic lows, the stock market was hitting new highs, and the U.S. economy was the envy of the world.
Trump had accomplished all this despite constant betrayals by back-stabbing RINOs, sabotage by the denizens of the Deep State, and vicious partisan attacks by the Democrats, who had never accepted the results of the 2016 election.
They pulled out all the stops to drive Trump from office, or at least drive him to distraction. The phony Russian collusion charge was followed by the Mueller witch hunt, an attempted coup that even the mercurial Lindsey Graham now denounces (albeit two years too late). Then came the absurd effort to impeach the president for having a phone conversation with a Ukrainian leader about a certain corrupt American politician.
But none of these dirty tricks worked. Trump’s pro-growth, pro-America policies had unleashed the country’s animal spirits, and the economy continued to surge ahead, creating jobs by the millions and raising wages for ordinary Americans.
A year ago, Trump’s popularity was higher than Obama’s had been going into the 2012 presidential campaign. The president was clearly poised for a crushing victory, one which was certain to carry many Republicans in close House and Senate races across the finish line to victory.
The Democrat establishment ditched the more popular Bernie Sanders, handing off the nomination instead to old Joe Biden. Biden’s reputation as a moderate would, they hoped, help them avoid total electoral disaster.
Then, in late January, 2020, we began to get word of a new virus that was spreading across China. Trump took decisive action, shutting off flights to and from China, but still the China Virus managed to reach our shores.
The Dems seized upon the pandemic like a drowning man clutching a life-preserver. When Trump solved the ventilator shortage, they demanded a vaccine. When Trump announced “two weeks to flatten to curve,” they claimed that the lockdowns would have to go on for a year. When he said the cure cannot be worse than the disease, they practically accused him of committing mass murder.
PETITION UPDATE (2/23/21) -
LifeSite has signed on to a Media Research Center (MRC) letter to all 50 state Attorneys General, calling for an investigation into Big Tech.
Google, Facebook, and Twitter have monopolized the industry, and are using their influence to collect user data, suppress content, and silence those who voice ideas and beliefs counter to their own.
As we urged prior, action must be taken to combat these efforts, and that is why we’ve joined the MRC in this fight.
Please take a couple of minutes to READ this LifeSiteNews article about MRC's initiative: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/lifesite-joins-effort-asking-state-attorneys-general-to-investigate-big-tech-for-deceptive-trade-practices
Then, please SIGN and STOP using Twitter, Facebook, Google (YouTube) and Amazon to take back your privacy and freedom of speech!
PETITION UPDATE (2/9/21) -
YouTube just completely removed the LifeSiteNews YouTube channel. This isn’t a ban, every single one of our videos is completely gone. Being completely removed from YouTube means we’ve lost access to 300,000+ followers.
This is the latest and appalling affront to free speech which is happening to many conservative and Christian organizations.
Please SIGN this petition and STOP using YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Google (owner of YouTube) and Amazon to take back your privacy and freedom of speech!
We are not going to take this lying down!
Thankfully, we have backups of all our videos:

PETITION UPDATE (1/26/20) -
Twitter has again locked LifeSiteNews out of two of our accounts on the platform for displaying a message noting that President Joe Biden’s newly named Assistant Secretary of Health “Rachel” Levine is a man.
Both accounts displayed a simple message which read: “Biden names transgender ‘woman’ as Assistant Secretary of Health. ‘Rachel’ Levine is a father of two who divorced his wife in 2013 after 30 years of marriage.” The tweets also included a link to LifeSite’s article Biden names transgender ‘woman’ as Assistant Secretary of Health, and contained part of the opening sentence of that article, “Joe Biden has announced his intention to appoint a gender-confused man” as Assistant Secretary of Health.
For stating biological or Biblical truths, Twitter and Big Tech are trying to shut down conservative voices.
Therefore, it is now more important than ever to consider dumping Twitter, Google (who own YouTube) and Facebook. To be clear: LifeSite is still using Twitter and Big Tech to encourage others to migrate away from these illiberal platforms.
This is not the first time that LifeSiteNews has been censored by Twitter. In December 2019, Twitter indefinitely suspended our account for a tweet that linked to an article on transgender activist Jonathan “Jessica” Yaniv.
At the time, Twitter gave LifeSite the option to delete the tweet and reactivate our account right away. LifeSite remained steadfast that the tweet did not violate any of the company’s “rules and policies,” and sought several appeals with Twitter, while looking into legal action against the company.
And, while LifeSite's account was eventually restored, we must now consider what course of action we will pursue in this case, over and above appealing the ban.
Meanwhile, since taking office on Wednesday last week, Joe Biden has already signed an executive order which will force women’s athletic programs, restrooms, and locker rooms to be open to men. He has also turned back the Trump administration’s policy protecting women’s sports programs in schools.
Last week, LifeSite was banned for two weeks from our YouTube channel, after the site determined that one of our videos about vaccines violated YouTube’s “community guidelines.” We are also in the middle of appealing this ban.
Please considering SIGNING and SHARING this petition. Thank you!
Twitter just deplatformed President Trump premanently! And, other conservatives, including General Flynn and Sidney Powell, were also summarily deplatformed.
Conservatives, Christians and freedom-loving Americans of all political persuasions must now take a decision to preserve their free speech AND their ability to peaceably assemble by dumping Twitter and Big Tech, and by finding other good alternatives to communicate with each other and share their opinions.
Please SIGN our petition-pledge to Dump Twitter and Big Tech, and take back your freedom of speech and privacy. [CLICK HERE for our "Goodbye Google" resources page to find good alternatives to Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, and Google!]
When you use Twitter or Facebook to communicate, and, or, Google and Amazon to search for something online, these companies can stifle your ability to share your thoughts and opinions and manipulate your search results, threatening your privacy, your freedom of speech, and even our democracy.
Evidence suggests that Twitter and Facebook's 'community guidelines' are selectively enforced against conservatives and Christians, while Google rigs their search algorithms to direct traffic away from conservative and Christian websites, effectively choking traffic to those sites.
Simply put, Twitter, Facebook, Google (who owns YouTube) and Amazon appear to be actively suppressing access to pro-freedom, pro-family and pro-life news and opinion.
Don't contribute to this assault on democracy: Stop using Twitter, Facebook, Google and Amazon as your default social media platforms and search engine! [CLICK HERE to find a good alternative to Google.]
To repeat: a few liberal and completely unaccountable computer programmers in Silicon Valley are dictating what we do and do not see in our Twitter and Facebook feeds, and in our Google searches.
We, here, at LifeSite, also recently had our Twitter account suspended by the company over "misgendering" a man who claims to be a woman.
LifeSite has also experienced a fall-off in Google search-related traffic since the company updated its search algorithms at the beginning of May.
And, since the November election, Twitter and Big Tech appear to have dramatically INCREASED their censorship of conservatives and Christians as the President Trump disputed the results of the election and when evidence of election fraud began to mount.
Now, it seems likely that they are trying to cut-off conservative leaders (like President Trump) from conservatives on the ground, and effectively exclude us from the national conversation.
But, this tactic will not work. Because Twitter, Facebook, Google and Amazon are not the only game in town! There are a good number of excellent alternatives which we list in our 'Goodbye Google' Resources page.
The great irony is that, while Twitter, Facebook, Google and Amazon executives talk a lot about maintaining freedom of speech and diversity, in fact, these hypocrites are ATTACKING free speech point-blank!
This kind of manipulation poses a lethal threat to our democracy, but as we see so clearly now, Twitter and Big Tech have shown no hesitation in excluding conservatives and Christians from the public square.
So, at this point, the only way to stop Twitter, Facebook, Google and Amazon is to quit using their platform.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to pledge to stop using Twitter and Big Tech. Then, please CLICK HERE to find alternative search engines and social media platforms. Thank you!

Democrat governors and mayors, acting on their own, did their best to crash the economy. Key states like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan stayed shut down all the way through to the election, bankrupting businesses and costing jobs. Nancy Pelosi did her part as well, maximizing the economic pain of the American people by withholding a second round of stimulus checks for months on end. There is no doubt that the political left weaponized the coronavirus to defeat Trump, heedless of the tens of millions of lives they destroyed in the process.
The endless succession of summer riots was another ploy to weaken the president. They were intended by the left, including Kamala Harris, to stoke up racist sentiment against a president who I believe is truly colorblind. Too many black and Hispanic Americans, seeing how Trump’s policies had improved their lives, were thinking about leaving the Democrat plantation. The riots, along with the China Virus, helped to slow down this exodus, though it did not stop it.
After all the phony Trumpian scandals, a real one emerged in the weeks before the election. But it concerned their own candidate, Joe Biden, and his wayward son, Hunter. By now everyone knows that Hunter’s laptop (which has been kept “safe” by the FBI since November 2019) allegedly contains evidence of pedophilia and corrupt Ukrainian and Chinese business dealings.
This had the prospect of really hurting Old Joe, so the mainstream media went into lockdown. They simply refused to cover the biggest political scandal since Benghazi. Hunter and the other members of the Biden Crime Family went into hiding. As for the “Big Guy” himself — as Biden was referred to in one payoff scheme — he went around mumbling that it had all been “debunked.”
The media, in short, made a huge in-kind campaign contribution to Biden, and this in turn made a huge difference in the outcome of the election. One in every eight Biden voters later said that, had he known about the scandal, he would not have voted for him.
At the same time, the media doubled down on their efforts to discredit Trump and demoralize his voters. They commissioned phony polls, one of which showed Biden an incredible 17 points ahead in Wisconsin (!). Yet even the media’s protective coverage of Biden and its relentless attacks on Trump were not nearly enough sway the electorate in Old Joe’s favor.
So, on Election Night, the Democrats had to resort to massive fraud in a half-dozen key swing states. If you doubt this, you need to read Peter Navarro’s brilliant account in three volumes.
So, yes, Donald Trump won. No one believes that, thanks to a massive infusion of votes arriving at 4 A.M., Biden received the most votes of any candidate in history. But, whether because of cowardice or death threats, the fraud has been allowed to stand. The Republican-controlled state legislatures refused to convene, and state and federal courts largely refused to take up the cases on largely specious grounds of “lack of standing,” or they delayed hearings until after the inauguration.
Biden will be president for the next four years, but everyone in D.C. knows who really won the election. And it wasn’t a 78-year-old man who campaigned from his basement, picked as his running mate one of the most unpopular candidates ever, who was confirmed in the middle of the night by a divided Congress, and who will be inaugurated inside a walled in Capitol with 26,000 troops to protect him. (From what, it’s not clear.)
It took every dirty trick in the book, along with a few invented just for this electoral cycle, to bring Trump down. But, as the saying goes, you can’t keep a good man down. Nor can you dissolve a movement of over a hundred million Americans by threatening to take down their Twitter accounts.
The MAGA movement — a movement based on faith, life, family, and freedom — is alive and well. And there is no doubt that the Democrats remain terrified by it and by the man who inspired it. The second phony impeachment — which Pelosi reportedly is not even going to send over to the Senate — is proof enough of that.
In 2021, Trump will start a conservative media company and make billions of dollars.
In 2022, MAGA candidates he endorses will take back the House and the Senate, retiring many RINOs and Democrats.
In 2024, to complete the trifecta, he will be re-elected to the office of president of the United States, scoring the biggest political comeback in American history.
