Video of Nancy Pelosi getting her hair done while not wearing a mask during the height of the pandemic surfaced when she and her liberal colleagues were mandating policies they actively ignored for themselves.
The owner of the San Francisco salon who graciously opened her doors to the congresswoman has been outspoken against California Democrats since. “My American dream is gone” said Erica Kious after living under the local ordinances and restrictions.
Kious received intense backlash after showing Pelosi courtesy, as all other businesses and salons were instructed to stay closed. Kious moved to the Nashville, Tennessee area to evade the oppressive policies.
Kious is not the only Californian who fled a blue state for red. She says nearly 80% of her entire Tennessee clientele are also Californians who recently moved.
At the time of Pelosi’s visit, in September of 2020, Kious told Fox News she had been conflicted about whether or not to even open her doors to the congresswoman. “It was a slap in the face that she went in, that she feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no one else can go in, and I can’t work” she said.
“We’re supposed to look up to this woman, right? It is just disturbing” said Kious.
Internal docs show Amazon censored books on vaccinations due to pressure from Biden White House
Recently released internal Amazon emails reveal the company caved to pressure from the Biden White House to suppress available vaccine information.
Provided to the House Judiciary Committee, the emails light on the extent of the Biden White House’s influence over the retail giant regarding vaccine-related content. The emails disclose a concerning narrative of pressure from government officials to suppress information deemed unfavorable to their agenda.
Republican Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio took to Twitter to disclose the findings, stating that the emails reveal direct pressure from the White House on Amazon to censor books expressing views contrary to those endorsed by the administration. One email, albeit redacted, explicitly poses the question of whether the administration requested the removal of certain books, to which the answer was affirmative.
National Review highlights the successful efforts of the Biden administration in persuading Amazon to limit the visibility of titles skeptical of vaccine efficacy. White House senior adviser for Covid-19 response, Andrew Slavitt, expressed concerns about Amazon’s role in propagating what he termed as “misinformation” regarding vaccines. His emails illustrate a push for action to address what he perceived as a proliferation of dissenting views.
In response to Slavitt’s inquiries, Amazon initially hesitated to take overt action, fearing backlash from conservative media outlets. The company’s internal deliberations reflect a concern for public perception and the potential amplification of the issue if intervention were too conspicuous.
Despite initially refraining from manual intervention, Amazon eventually succumbed to pressure, engaging in discussions with White House officials. The company’s internal documents reveal deliberations on whether the administration sought outright book bans or alterations to search results. Amazon’s stance, as expressed in their meeting with the White House, emphasized the provision of diverse viewpoints and the distinction between online retail and social media platforms.
