    My digital landscape is changing post election

    My digital landscape is changing post election

    I’m moving to Parler, MeWe, OAN, and Newsmax.

    The pre-election panel discussion on Sunday, Nov. 1st seems ages ago. It is amazing how time slows down when your are in a nightmare.

    Yet, one answer I gave regarding a my response to a Biden victory resonates very strongly with me now: If Biden wins, we will need websites like Legal Insurrection more now than ever before.

    After enduring the complete fiasco of election night coverage on Fox News, I had to take a break from all mainstream media news coverage. It was crystal clear that ‘journalists” were going to drive the narrative that Biden won, and discount or minimize the legal challenges and ground reports indicating serious problems with the vote count.

    I have to be honest: I took the weekend off, crawled into my comfy corner with a good book and a cup of cocoa, and let the anger and disappointment wash out of me.

    It’s going to be hard to continue review, analyze and share what passes as “news” in this country, as determined by the elite, self-serving globalists who reign in the DC-NYC Beltway. However, #WalkAway Movement founder provided some needed inspiration in a tweet:

    And while I don’t have a cowboy hat, I certainly can put on my imaginary one and continue to cover the realities of progressive science and technology policies, should that be necessary. Granted, I may have to rely on the foreign press much more to do so. But the alternative would be to let the propaganda outlets that our media has become to go unchallenged…and that I will not do.

    Legal Insurrection’s team is going to continue its campus activism and investigations. Local fights for liberty and freedom will become much more important, and stories published here won’t be throttled, shadow-banned, or hidden behind false content warnings.

    However, it is clear that we be returning to the days before Facebook and Twitter to share links in comments, and items through email. Supporting the small, but effective, conservative news and political analysis sites will be critical to our success, mental health, and spiritual strength.

    I am using the next week to change-up my approaches to social media. Like Glenn Reynolds, I am taking my entire political content over to MeWe.com, rather than letting Facebook suppress it. I will retain my account for the personal relationships I have built.

    My Twitter activities will be limited to supporting a few of my favorites and collecting quotes. It will be Parler for all the rest.

    Otherwise, I will be leaving all other social media. I don’t want social justice activists using me as a product.

    Fox News is gone. Completely….after having been a staple since 2000. I sure hope some of my favorite hosts transition to OAN or NewsMax.

    I haven’t hit The Drudge Report in a year. I have found Rantingly.com and Citizen Free Press solid replacements.

    As Hollywood has made it clear it despises my values, my entertainment will be confined to old movies and good books. I don’t anticipate going to a theater again.

    Products that use social justice antics to market will not be purchased. I will also make it a point to avoid buying absolutely anything made in China, to ensure the Chinese profit as little as possible.

    I am going through my financial plans now, to determine how best to lower my tax footprint if necessary. Washington DC will profit as little from me as possible, as it is clear it no longer represents me.

    In terms of the next election cycle, this is 110% true for me:

    The time of personal realignment has just begun.

    Whatever other plans I make in the future, there are a few actions I will take with certainty. I will not roll over. I will never accept a Biden administration as legitimate. And I will continue to work to get the best possible information to our Legal Insurrection friends.

    Good plan, Leslie, thank you. Some caveats:

    I just cannot get used to Parler’s interface. It affords no control over content flow. Its terms of usage are very suspect as well; Washington Examiner has done a piece on that. It’s a shame so many conservatives have flocked there. I find Gab, with its user Groups, much more usable.

    Rumble, a youtube replacement, requires your mobile phone # before you can comment on videos. No thanks. With Parler, it’s another Bongino investment. Bitchute or Brighteon might be better.

    I would be careful of Newsmax. Chris Ruddy was the most ardent Bill Clinton opponent, then radically flipped and now is personal friends with him and says he was a “great president”. I can’t trust him.

    If Trump does not prevail in this election, we are going to be forced into guerrilla tactics like never before. We will have to get very shrewd about things. But I still believe Trump will prevail.

    PRAY!

      More than PRAY, Paul. DECLARE.

      For some time now, I’ve been pondering Genesis. “In the beginning, God made heaven and earth.” Period. That’s the story of the original creation. “Now the earth was without form and void” – in other words, his original creation in verse 1 was destroyed and it was a mess in verse 2. Dark. Lifeless. Mixed up. Earth was without shape – potentially a mixed up mass of solids, water and inbetween.

      God’s first order of business? A DECLARATION. “LET THERE BE LIGHT”.

      And once LIGHTED, He began sorting it all out – restoring His order.

      So, since everything is so mixed up and the enemy is trying so hard to smother the light and subject us to darkness, my prayerful daily declaration is “LET THERE BE LIGHT”. (Hint: I don’t whisper it, I DECLARE it.) 😉

      To be sure, I pray. But I also call it like I believe God intends things to be here. A place where the light of truth prevails, and God’s people live in freedom.

      In freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, therefore and do not be entangled again in a yoke of slavery! Galatians 5:1

      I take “do not be entangled again” to be fighting orders from on high.

      I would say stick with Parler, for a little bit. The more funding, the better it will be. But funding requires audience.

      Twitter only got better because its audience grew. We are building these new platforms to suit us…they are bound to get better.

    What is your name on Parler?

    Sent an invite on MeWe.

    Fox is one of our last iconic institutions to be compromised but their defection is perhaps the most critical due timing. There are legions of conservatives looking for other places to land. Hope we can give each other a helping hand as Leslie has done. At some point there might be a Trump/Carlson network option.

    “I can chart the path forward for no other man, but I will contest to their last breaths the desires of petty tyrants and their co-conspirators if they cross this red line that determines that the soap box, ballot box, and jury box have failed, and that the cartridge box is our last resort.

    I will go to my death if this time comes to pass, orphaning and widowing those I hold most dear. For that I am truly regretful, just as I regret the lives I must attempt to cut short so that my children will breathe free. I know that in my sights will be another mother’s son or daughter, likely with children of their own. But they will have made their choice of whom to serve, and I have made mine.

    There is no desire for bloodshed in my heart, but if they want a war, let it begin here”

    Leaving Twitter in two days. Use facebook for family/old friends
    Parler works for me. They’ve had massive growth, sometimes over 4 mil per day. With their badge system, it minimizes nonsense posts and bots. I have a gab account, seemed too many know it alls and more drama. Use rumble instead of youtube, growing their conserv content creators. Otherwise, visit independent sites like this and aggregate my own news interests.
    Thks Leslie, will find you on Parler
