PORTSMOUTH, OH – Congressman Ed Markey (D-Mass.), aka Senator Crankypants, threatened a business owned by a taxpaying citizen in the USA – and the genius put it in writing amid several tweets – a permanent record. Political bullying in its finest hour, folks.  

You can peruse the detailed story at PJ Media.

Catalyst: Washington Post journalist, aka trolling tattletale, created a verified account impersonating Markey. No doubt he/she sprinted to reveal the glitch to Sen. Crankypants. 

After tweets went back and forth, others joined the conversation. And here comes the scary threat from an elected official:  


Big Tech is using a content filtering system for online censorship. Watch our short video about NewsGuard to learn how they control the narrative for the Lamestream Media and help keep you in the dark. NewsGuard works with Big-Tech to make it harder for you to find certain content they feel is 'missing context' or stories their editors deem "not in your best interest" - regardless of whether they are true and/or factually accurate. They also work with payment processors and ad-networks to cut off revenue streams to publications they rate poorly by their same bias standards. This should be criminal in America.

“One of your companies is under an FTC consent decree. Auto safety watchdog NHTSA is investigating another for killing people. And you’re spending your time picking fights online. Fix your companies. Or Congress will,” Sen. Crankpants replies.  

Wow! Sounds a lot like the recent rogue activities of the FBI and DOJ Gestapo. Is Musk the next target? Did Sen. Crankypants just reveal confidential information for the entire world to view? And who killed who?  

His name needs to be changed to Senator Scarypants.  

“Clearly, Markey — like most Democrats — isn’t skilled at reading the room. In the wake of what’s happened under Biden and the obvious abuses of power the country has witnessed, for Markey to threaten to use Congress against an American citizen and his business either makes him incredibly stupid or downright scary,” asserts Ryan Ledendecker at PJ Media. 

Let’s see if Sen. Stupidpants engages in damage control. Is an apology being formulated via his attorney? Nany Pelosi gives good advice. (uh-huh) 

This is fodder for Senator Coursework 101: What not to say or do when angry at internet and a social media malfunction.  

  • Rule #1: Consider the mainstream media mafia source. Some journalists are known for stirring up trouble, passing along fake news, and using woke cancel culture for kicks.  
  • Rule #2: Step away from the App until boiling rage simmers and dissipates. Feelings aren’t facts. 
  • Rule #3: Never threaten an American citizen – in private or in public. Play nice.  
  • Rule #4: Never use your position of power to shakedown or takedown an American citizen. That’s not playing nice.  
  • Rule #5: Read the book All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” every morning and every night.
