DirecTV announced that it will not renew One America News‘ (OAN) contact that comes up for renewal in April, and their decision has become a political firestorm. The woke are jumping up and down for joy while former President Donald Trump started taunting a boycott of AT&T at a rally held Saturday night.

Political hit jobs like this are not part of the invisible hand. Being a Democrat, I wouldn’t expect Lieu to understand.
“Corporate Media is crushing what little dissent remains: DirecTV Cancels OAN after Joe Biden Orders Media Outlets and Tech Giants to Banish Voices that Deviate from the Regime’s Official Narrative.”

Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) mentioned some victims of the Left’s purging.
The Left’s purge continues:
-YouTube demonetizes Dan Bongino.
-DirectTV drops One America News.
-Twitter suspends Dr. Malone.

Folks, this is all part of the Left’s Global Reset. It’s not about socialism, though many of those involved are socialists. This is a move by people have already made their money and now are building a world in their collective image where they will rule and the rest of us, if allowed to live, will exist just to service the elites in a Brave New World-like existence. This is not hyperbole, and it’s not a joke. Billionaires and millionaires are teaming up with banks and corporations, leftist politicians, media and tech tyrants. If they are not stopped, in under ten years we will no longer recognize the lifestyle we live right now.
Donald Trump went off on AT&T that is the parent company of DirecTV, at a rally speech in Florence, Arizona Saturday night.
“The woke executives, I don’t know what the hell they’re doing, they have so much debt,” he told a large crowd, teasing a “boycott” of AT&T.
“I will not use the word boycott! I will not say boycott AT&T.”
News of the political attack on OAN was praised by leftists at CNN, where ratings always go to die, and which is also owned by AT&T.
CNN’s media critics Brian Stelter a.k.a. Humpty Dumpty and Oliver Darcy a.k.a. Dumpty Humpty, who to me looks like a serial killer, were the first couple to call for Trump to be kicked off and banned from Twitter. More recently, they have been calling on a total ban of conservative networks from major cable systems because that’s what tyrants do. When they cannot beat someone fair and square, they opt to have the opposition silenced instead.
Has anyone ever asked why CNN has “media critics” in the first place? First, these two clowns twisted truth into lies and lies into truth and then argue that networks that are reporting truth are reporting lies and therefore need to go away by force. CNN lost 90% of its viewership compared to this time last year. I personally think the remaining 10% are from airports and people who have died with the TV on and their bodies haven’t yet been discovered.
Curtis Houck of Newsbusters tweeted out a dire warning for other conservative networks.
“If you don’t think Stelter, Darcy, CNN, The New York Times, Harvard, and the rest of the academic and media elites won’t go all-out to ban Fox News, Fox Business, and Newsmax next, you’re dead wrong.”

Humpty Dumpty and Dumpty Humpty jumped on the news of OAN being attacked by AT&T, calling it “a significant blow to OAN,” and berated OAN as a “fringe network.” Of course, CNN would think a news network that reports news truthfully is a fringe network. I mean, get with the times guys, and start making up the news for your political narrative instead of reporting news.
The irony here is that CNN reported daily for two and a half years that Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election. That lie was repeated on practically every show, all day, and every day. No one at the network has to this day ever apologized for the lies they spread about collusion even after four separate investigations, including a special counsel investigation, found that no evidence existed to show Trump colluded with Russia. In fact, it has since come out that Hillary Clinton was the one who came up with the Russian collusion story in an effort to get her illegal private email server off the front pages during a presidential campaign. CNN, to my knowledge, has never mentioned that.
CNN, supposedly a news network, has gone full on activist to censor conservative viewpoints and their activism has encouraged other authoritarian leftist groups to jump on their bandwagon.
Media Matters, run by David Brock, a man who John Podesta thinks is really crazy, was a part of sixteen organizations that wrote a letter to AT&T’s CEO John Stankey and Bill Morrow, CEO of DirecTV.
“We, the undersigned 16 civil-rights, human-rights and media-justice organizations, call on you to end your business relationships with One America News Network (OANN),” the letter said from the woke supremacy groups including Greenpeace USA and Common Cause.
The Left has declared war on Free Speech and conservative thought. I think the idea of a national divorce is looking better and better all the time.
