WASHINGTON. Continuing our previous discussion of corporate virtue-signaling and anti-First Amendment censorship, here’s a verifiable fact. Substantial numbers of Trump supporters, bedrock conservatives and variously-flavored Republicans are bailing on both Facebook (symbol: FB) and Twitter (TWTR).

The cabal runs out of money, they will lose control of the media. Clearly they have run out of money. President Trump signed an Executive Order on 21st December which enables him to seize the assets of all people involved in drug and sex trafficking, whether domestic or abroad:
