The Columbia Bugle's Sunday Newsletter
The Left in America continues to demonstrate the dramatic lengths they will go to achieve and maintain power. From swatting (attempted assassination) elected officials who are pushing legislation they don’t like, to wielding the power of the Federal Government to silence stories that harm their preferred candidates, to bribing Americans to vote for them, this week provided many more examples that should rouse from slumber every Conservative who believes they’re still dealing with the Party of Jimmy Carter. Wake up or be permanently conquered.

Zuckerberg’s Confession And The FBI’s Meddling In American Politics
The censorship of the Hunter Biden story in 2020 was an unforgivable crime that, along with other suspicious activities, dramatically impacted the 2020 election. Ever since the American people dared to forge their own path, reject the uniparty candidates in 2016 and choose Donald Trump to be their champion against the Swamp, Big Tech and other forces have ramped up their control over information.
“Conservative” pundits and organizations have lied to their listeners/readers for years saying that these tech companies were purely private companies acting only in their own financial self-interest, but Americans have seen too many examples to fall for that BS anymore. This week provided a few more damning examples.
The FBI And Big Tech
Meta (formerly Facebook) CEO Mark Zuckerberg joined Joe Rogan this week and the two discussed Facebook’s decision to censor the Hunter Biden story.
Conservatives rightfully responded with anger, especially directed at the FBI over yet another instance (see also the Whitmer Plot) of them meddling in the 2020 election.
Congressman Matt Gaetz added that whistleblowers have discussed this as well.
Meta Newsroom attempted to clean up Zuckerberg’s remarks.
Despite Meta or Facebook or whatever the hell they call themselves tomorrow say, they dutifully limited the reach of an important story during the 2020 election after being warned by the FBI about “misinformation” or “disinformation.”
Facebook may be less blameworthy than Twitter and Google, but the main villain here is our increasingly out of control and politicized FBI. Big Tech doesn’t work for us, their bias is expected even though their power must obviously be reined in. Americans must realize that it is our own supposedly “non-partisan” institutions that are trampling our first amendment rights.
But let’s discuss the terms “misinformation” and “disinformation” first and how they are used to justify censorship. “Misinformation” and “disinformation” are the Swamp’s favorite terms to describe speech that goes against the Regime narrative.
Darren Beattie of Revolver News explains how these terms are used by both journalists and the national security state to censor their opponents.
Disinformation is a national security term. It invites the force of our own national security apparatus to silence trump supporters domestically.
The Pentagon is even funding organizations like NewsGuard to fight “misinformation.”

Nowhere is the scam of “disinformation” journalism more apparent than in the services of a shadowy company called Newsguard. Newsguard markets itself as an “internet trust tool” that assigns “nutrition label” ratings to news sites to indicate their “trustworthiness.”
Newsguard also features on its advisory board a man named Richard Stengel. Stengel is a former senior official in Obama’s state department who once described his role as being that of “chief propagandist”
In the following clip, Stengel argues for curtailing the free-flow of information on the internet, and even proclaims that the First Amendment ought to be modified in the digital age to allow for the censorship of so-called “hate speech”—that is, presumably, speech that Rick Stengel’s former boss Obama and current boss Joe Biden hate.
This war on “disinformation” has been an obsession of permanent Washington. The most recent example of this was the Biden Administration’s attempt to create a “Disinformation Governance Board.”
A few more examples of the close relationship of Big Tech and Big Government.
The Biden Regime has been working to install pro-censorship nominees like Gigi Sohn onto the FCC. Luckily, her confirmation has been stalled and maybe even abandoned. But the fact that this candidate was even considered is a testament to the Biden Regime’s constant pursuit of every avenue they can find to wield the power of the Government to censor their political opponents.
Members of Congress like AOC have even called on Big Tech to censor her opponents.
The ability to freely exchange ideas online is critical for the American people to truly understand and oppose the Regime. Censorship is the Regime’s most powerful weapon and they have a willing ally in Big Tech to assist them. Our traditions of free speech mean nothing to these people. Alternative social media platforms are welcome and should be praised. But in the end the only recourse for the American people is for these incredible behemoths to be shackled. Until both Big Tech and Big Government are reined in our elections will not be our own and the first amendment will be nothing more than words on paper, a meaningless parchment guarantee.
Somewhat Of An Update On The FBI’s Raid Of Mar-A-Lago
Since the raid on Mar-a-Lago many Americans on both sides, including President Trump, have demanded the release of the affidavit that was used to justify the raid on Mar-a-Lago.
This week a heavily redacted version of the affidavit was released by the DOJ and provides very few answers to questions about why this raid was conducted.
Techno Fog has great analysis of the affidavit, the Government’s stated reasons for its redactions and the Judge’s rationale in allowing the redactions.
As expected, the judge allowed the Government to heavily redact the affidavit before it went public. In yesterday’s order, the judge found that parts of the affidavit must remain sealed because:
“disclosure would reveal (1) the identities of witnesses, law enforcement agents, and uncharged parties, (2) the investigation’s strategy, direction, scope, sources, and methods, and (3) grand jury information protected by Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 6(e).”
We know the FBI is out of control and not run by nonpartisan dispensers of justice, but by neurotic partisans who want to thwart the will of the people and deprive Donald Trump of a second term. Until these forces are reined in and perhaps even dismantled, everything in our politics will be fake.
Left Wing Terrorism: The Swatting Of Marjorie Taylor Greene
Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has been the leading voice in Congress pushing back against the Left’s Predatory LGBT Agenda that seeks to brainwash and mutilate America’s children. Last week she introduced a bold and important piece of legislation called the “Protect Children’s Innocence Act.”
This week, Representative Greene announced that her home had been swatted.
“Swatting” is when someone anonymously calls the police with a false report of a horrific crime that justifies an armed SWAT team being sent out to the address provided by the caller. It’s incredibly dangerous and could have led to the Congresswoman and her family being killed in a mistaken shoutout. There’s no other way to describe this other than an assassination attempt.
Someone was trying to use the police to kill Representative Greene.
The person who orchestrated this assassination attempt has not been caught due to their use of a computer generated voice when placing the call to police, but they did call back after the incident and stated their motive. Here is a summary of what happened.
According to a Rome Police Department report, Rome police officers responded to a 911 call on Wednesday at 01:03 a.m. which led them to initially believe a man who had been shot multiple times in the bathtub at Greene’s home. The caller also stated there was a woman inside the home and possibly children with her. When officers responded Greene assured the officers there was no issue at the home.
“After we cleared the call and went back in service, Rome-Floyd 911 received a call from the suspect, claiming responsibility for the incident and explaining his/her motives,” the report stated. “It was a computer generated voice. They explained they were upset about Ms. Greene’s stance on ‘trans-gender youth’s rights,’ and stated they were trying to ‘swat’ her.”
The report also stated caller said they are connected to a website, which police stated supports cyberstalking, and gave the police their user name on the site.

I was upset. I was afraid.
Not only did they put my life and my families life in danger, they also put the police officers lives in danger. Whoever this person is they deserve to be locked up.

"Is the Left trying to have you assassinated, ma'am?"
“Yes. They are trying to have me murdered, they are trying to get me killed."
The next night, Representative Greene was swatted again.

On Friday, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene joined Tucker Carlson to discuss these swatting incidents.
They’re so angry at me for trying to protect kids that they’re willing to have me killed and definitely working hard to do that.
I'm more resolved than ever and I'm not going to back down.

They wanted me to be murdered.
You can see in these images that officers had their weapons drawn.

As we stated above, all of this comes just a week after Representative Greene introduced legislation to protect America’s Children.
We covered this legislation in our newsletter from last week.
Incidents of “swatting” have become more common over the past few years and as The National Pulse has pointed out have been frequently used against political figures.
The act of “swatting” has been applied to a number of anti-establishment figures in recent months, with former Trump advisor Stephen K. Bannon being swatted at his Capitol Hill townhouse, and YouTuber Tim Pool experiencing the same several times over in the past year, sometimes while live on air.
Kevin Kolbye, a former FBI swatting expert, told The Economist that annual swatting incidents have climbed from roughly 400 in 2011 to more than 1,000 in 2019.
Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene is a fearless warrior in Washington fighting to put America First and protect America’s children from the Left’s Satanic agenda. Despite the constant death threats and swattings this week she isn’t backing down, and neither should we.
I think what everyone needs to understand about me is all of these things that are coming against me and the hate on the left, on it actually makes me dig in harder. And it's a conviction inside of me. And I will fight harder and I will keep going. It actually fuels me. So they can try whatever they want. I won't stop.
