Twitter Says No More Outright Bans

Personally, I’m not buying this. I think Twitter is just banking on Biden winning, and then it’s back to business as usual, or likely much worse.

Twitter announced that it was reversing course on some of the extreme censorship that it imposed this week to stop the dissemination of news reports from The New York Post that were damaging to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. read more

Will Social Media Platforms Get What they Deserve

Or will it be All Show and No Go, as it’s always been?

by: Brent Smith

While I’m heartened to see the Senate appears serious about dragging these arrogant big tech CEO’s before a committee to testify to what the rest of us clearly see as brash, leftist partisanship by Twitter, Facebook, et al, I will continue to ask to what end.

Will something, can something finally be done about it, or are they simply too big and too powerful. Can the federal government finally crack down on these social media corporations and reclassify them as they are – publishers that make editorial decisions on what the public will see, rather than what they claim to be and what the government has categorized them as – free-speech, neutral forums/platforms.

I’m not an advocate for government interference – picking winners and losers, but that’s exactly has happened. These companies have enjoyed government mandated protection from liability for too long. This has to stop. And every year that goes by and nothing is done, these companies take a bit more editorial license until we get what we have now, a literal censorship board that controls what millions of America can and cannot see. These social media magnates have become the sole arbiters of what is fit to print.

The only way to stop this is to strip this government benefit from them. Otherwise, we can all but kiss conservative networking goodbye.

Republicans declare war on Facebook and Twitter censorship of New York Post, announce Senate hearings next week

‘What the hell is going on’

After Facebook and Twitter sparked outrage by censoring several New York Post reports on emails allegedly from Hunter Biden’s laptop, Republican lawmakers want Big Tech CEOs to testify in Congress and explain why the Post’s stories are being suppressed.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) formally requested on Thursday that the CEOs of Twitter and Facebook both appear before the U.S. Senate to testify on their companies’ individual decisions to censor the Post’s reports. The letters, written to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, invite the Big Tech bosses to testify before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism in a hearing called “Digital Platforms and Election Interference.”

Hawley’s letters announce an inquiry into whether Facebook and Twitter violated federal election law by suppressing the distribution of the New York Post story, “Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad.”

“As your company is no doubt aware, corporations are forbidden from contributing anything of value — financial or otherwise — to support the election of candidates for federal office,” each letter states.

 

The letter to Dorsey noted that Twitter “asymmetrically” applied its terms of service against the Post story and suspended the official Donald Trump presidential campaign account for sharing the article. The hearing “will also consider [Twitter’s] decision to double down on that potential violation by, on October 15, 2020, suppressing the Post‘s follow-up story.”

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and committee member Ted Cruz (R-Texas) also announced Thursday that the Senate Judiciary Committee will vote on Tuesday to serve Dorsey a subpoena to testify the following Friday. Cruz characterized Twitter’s actions as “election interference.”

The Saga of Schiff T. Coyote

This is an instant classic. And if you love the old Bugs Bunny and Road Runner cartoons, you’ll appreciate it even more.

However, due to completely ridiculous, unrealistic and impossible cartoon violence, the following video may not be suitable for some young children, or all snowflake leftists. The hopelessly and perpetually offended crowd may find that viewing this CARTOON is simply too violent and may cause permanent psychological and possibly physiological damage.

Meadows Shreds Impeachment By Hearsay

by: Brent Smith

It’s easy to sum up the democrat impeachment report, and it takes a lot less than the 300 pages of bloviation they spat out, not to mention the days and days of inane testimony.

Allow me to sum it all up. “Well that’s what we heard!”

Even after all the time and money they’ve wasted on this clown show, not a single witness was able to provide the dems with any first-hand evidence, or any knowledge of any wrong-doing by the president. And need I remind us all – it is our money they are wasting.

And I’m not the only one who shares this feeling. Representative Mark Meadows (R-NC), former Chairman of the Freedom Caucus embarked on a tweet-storm Tuesday, shredding the entire democrat impeachment report in just 6 points. Adding all his tweets together would barely fill a single page.

Crime Didn’t Pay for New Orleans Radio Host

So yeah – is this guy somehow related to Jussie Smollett? I mean, they do have a few things in common. Both are in show business – sort of. Smollett was an actor, Seth Dunlap, whom you’ll read about shortly, is in radio, so that’s kind of like show business. They’re both about the same age – Smollett is 37 and Dunlap is 35. They’re both homosexual, doubtless liberal idiots, and they’re both lying dirtbags. Other than that there’s no similarity at all.

Openly gay radio host threatens to sue his station over a homophobic tweet. Except police say he sent the tweet himself

This didn’t work out the way he thought it would

A New Orleans radio host is under fire after he reportedly sent a homophobic tweet from the radio station’s official Twitter account to himself.

He later demanded the radio station, WWL-AM, pay him $1.8 million in compensation over the incident.

We Could Learn from Trump’s Dealing with the Marxist Four

Everyone is talking about what a bully Donald Trump is to the poor female congress people of color. Oh the hand-wringing by the left and the spineless establishment right. I can still hear the echoes of the tisk-tisk of utter disappointment and disapproval from the likes of Alisyn Camerota and Chris Cuomo at CNN, as the sophomoric left opines about civility and restraint. They never practice it. They just preach to us about it.

There they were – four patriotic American congresswomen, just minding their own business, talking about normal stuff that Americans talk about. You know, like how our border agents are monsters who torture innocent immigrants by making them sleep in cages and drink out of toilets. And generally how crappy America is and how poorly people of color, especially women are treated.

And they would sure know – all four – AOC, Omar, Tlaib and Pressley, being “of color.” And all four, being so oppressed and all, only managed to make it to the third highest elected office in the entire nation. The Senate and the Presidency are the only offices to eclipse them. read more

What’s Good for the Prez, is Good for the Radical

A three judge panel of the 2nd district Court of Appeals upheld a lower court ruling that President Trump cannot block his Twitter followers just because they post critical or divisive comments. I agree. The president uses his @RealDonaldTrump account for public and policy statements – not just for personal issues as a private citizen. As he uses this public forum for government business, blocking the public would be in violation of the followers’ First Amendment rights.

That being “settled,” it will be interesting if leftist radical Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is treated the same, as a lawsuit was recently filed to force AOC to unblock those who have been critical of her.

NFL star quarterback Baker Mayfield ripped into the administration at an Ohio high school for dropping valedictorian and salutatorian honors out of sensitivity to students who don’t earn the awards and a concern for the overall “mental health” of students.

“This is so dumb,” said the Cleveland Browns quarterback in a Saturday tweet captioning the news. “You’re telling me competition doesn’t bring out the best in people? If you want something bad enough, work for it.” read more
