Social Media Giants are a Threat to the Republic

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

You seriously cannot make this stuff up, folks. – Democrat activists in Hollywood are planning to release a movie in September in which Trumps supporters are dehumanized by being portrayed as no better than game animals to be hunted for sport by the nation’s “elite.” Breitbart reports that ESPN made the decision over the weekend to pull ads for the film, uncreatively titled “The Hunt,” from its dying channel over the weekend in the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton.

This film is an obvious, blatant dog-whistle attempt by Hollywood’s ruling leftist community to encourage even more violence against Trump supporters, who are already being targeted by Democrat-affiliated activists like Antifa all around the nation. Interestingly, the Democrat activists who run Facebook apparently understand the potential liability being assumed by any platform that advertises for the hate film, given that, when I attempted to post a link to the Breitbart article linked here on my Facebook feed last night, the post was locked and I received a warning that the article and trailer within it did not meet Facebook’s fake “community standards related to nudity and sexual content.” The problem with that lie is that anyone who views the trailer can clearly see that it contains neither nudity nor sexual content.

When I attempted to post the link a second time, I was put in Facebook prison for 24 hours. Hilarious. But hey, I did break the rules in that second attempt, so I really have no issue with that action and am happy to take my medicine. However, I do object to Facebook’s pretense that it actually has any “community standards,” because “standards” are things that are enforced uniformly. What Facebook actually has are tools that it uses to suppress speech its Democrat activists do not approve of. That isn’t “standards,” that’s censorship.

Meanwhile, over on Twitter, the censorship is even more absurd. – When violent protesters, led by local leaders of the Soros-funded Black Lives Matter hate group, descended on Mitch McConnell’s home in Louisville, KY, some of them took video of the obscenity-and-threat-filled festivities and posted them to social media, including on Twitter.

But when @Team_Mitch shared the video on its own account, the Democrat activists who run Twitter suspended the account on the laughable claim that it  “violated our violent threats policy, specifically threats involving physical safety.” Mind you, this was Mitch McConnell simply exposing threats being made on his own person at his own home.

But it gets better. Twitter also suspended the account of Ryan Saavedra, a reporter for Daily Wire, for sharing the ugly video, but has not suspended the account for Black Lives Matter or any other activist who shared it. Twitter also has not suspended anyone who has spread the hateful #MassacreMitch hashtag which went viral on its platform on Wednesday.

As reported by @TheHill,

The video included Black Lives Matter Louisville leader Chanelle Helm repeatedly cursing and stating that she wished the GOP leader had ‘broken his little, raggedy, wrinkled-ass neck’ instead of injuring his shoulder last weekend, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported. Helm later said, ‘Just stab the motherf—er in the heart’ after a man made a reference to a voodoo doll. The comment quickly went viral on social media.

Perhaps Twitter’s reluctance to take any action against Black Lives Matter stems from its well-publicized partnership with the Soros hate group designed to promote exactly this kind of hateful activism across its platform. You think?

These are just two of thousands of incidents that have led the White House to begin drafting an executive order that would somehow address the blatant anti-conservative bias that permeates all the major social media platforms. As Politico reports:

The White House is circulating drafts of a proposed executive order that would address allegations of anti-conservative bias by social media companies, according to a White House official and two other people familiar with the matter — a month after President Donald Trump pledged to explore “all regulatory and legislative solutions” on the issue.

None of the three would describe the contents of the order, which one person cautioned has already taken many different forms and remains in flux. But its existence, and the deliberations surrounding it, are evidence that the administration is taking a serious look at wielding the federal government’s power against Silicon Valley.

An executive order is fine as a first step, but one that is likely to have very little impact on the behavior of these corporate giants. The Administration really needs to step up the efforts at regulatory agencies like the SEC, the FCC, the FEC, the IRS and others to rein them in, because their biased behavior represents a clear and present danger to our constitutional republic at this point.

This is not complicated: If an oil company provided free gasoline and jet fuel to Democrat campaigns, that would be an illegal contribution punishable with severe penalties, and properly so. The same should apply to Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and all the other big tech platforms and their tireless efforts to provide billions of dollars in free support across their platforms for Democrat candidates.

We broke up Standard Oil 115 years ago and AT&T 35 years ago. There is no reason we should not do the same with these social media giants in 2019. To paraphrase John F. Kennedy, they should be broken into a thousand pieces and scattered to the winds.

That is all.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez – the Gift who Just Keeps on Giving

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Alexandra-Beto 2024? –  It could happen, because this is just how ridiculous your Democrat Party has become.

Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio Cortez spent her Friday evening doing a livestream Q&A with her fans on her Instagram account while she whipped up a box of Kraft Mac ‘n Cheese for supper – which, not coincidentally, is also the favorite dinner for my 5 and 8 year-old granddaughters. Hashtag, irony.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

Anyways, one of her fan girl callers was all, like, ‘so, when ya gonna run for, like, president and stuff?’ to which Cortez licked a little of that fake cheese powder off her finger and said something like, ‘I know, right?’. The raging nitwit from Queens then went onto compare herself to Shirley Chisholm, who Ms. Cortez described as “the first black woman to ever run for president as a nominee of any major political party,” which, of course, is something Ms. Chisholm did not in fact do, though she did make very brief attempt to seek her party’s nomination for the presidency in 1972.

But, as always not letting the facts of history get in the way of a good story, Cortez stirred the boiling macaroni and continued:

“She was a congresswoman out of Brooklyn. She was also the first black woman in Congress. And people asked her when she ran for president in the 1970s…60s,” she continued while forgetting the dates and moving from counter to counter.

The socialist went on to say that Chisholm told people that she ran for president because “someone had to be the first,” saying that she knew she was “blazing a trail for.. um.. for.. black candidates.. for.. women.”

At age 29, it is no doubt a tragedy in the minds of many Democrat voters that Ms. Cortez will just be a little too young to seek the Democrat nomination in 2020, given that the Constitution itself sets a minimum age of 35 for anyone to serve as president.  But, hey, 2024 is just sitting out there awaiting a new young mental midget to become the Democrat standard bearer, and really, is there anyone out there who better represents the current mindless state of that Party than Ms. Cortez?

And hey, Beto O’Rourke will probably have $3 billion or so in the bank from all of his New York and Hollywood benefactors by then, so he’d make a perfect running mate. Plus, he probably likes mac ‘n cheese, too. Problem solved for our next woman trailblazer!

But first she needs an apartment. – Of course, Ms. Cortez must first find some place to live in Washington, DC before she can really turn her eye towards a run for the presidency, and this is presenting a bit of a challenge for a person with the apparent mental acuity of the average myna bird.

Late last week, she told the New York Times the following:

Her transition period will be “very unusual, because I can’t really take a salary,” she said in an interview with The New York Times. “I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real.”

Mind you, this is a person who has somehow been able to afford to wear dresses worth multi-thousands of dollars and a parade of Christian Louboutin shoes throughout her congressional campaign.  Given that it is illegal to pay for such niceties with campaign funds, a curious person – which of course excludes the entirety of our fake national news media when it comes to Democrats – might wonder where the money for all that came from.

Of course, the truth of this is really not that hard. Both political parties offer financial assistance to help incoming rookie members of congress find an initial home in the nation’s capitol, where rents are indeed quite high.

Also, as even the New York Times somehow managed to report accurately in 2015, scores of members of congress – including Speaker of the House Paul Ryan – actually choose to live in their congressional offices rather than foot the bill for a second home in D.C. or the surrounding suburbs.  These folks work out and shower at the various congressional gyms, and all of the house and senate office buildings contain cafeterias and sundry shops where they can purchase toiletries and other necessities of life.

Many other members of congress find roommates with whom to share costs of apartment or townhome rent and utilities. No doubt there will be dozens who would be happy to bunk in with someone who possesses Ms. Cortez’s obvious elementary school-level culinary skills.

For most new members of congress, this really isn’t that hard to figure out. For Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, though, spelling her own name most likely presents a terrible challenge.  Life is tough for now, but hey, she’ll be president in 6 years and everything will be peaches and cream from then on.

*sigh*

The Democrat voters in Queens have blessed us with a rare gift, folks. Enjoy her while you can.  I know I plan to.

Oh hey, and Hillary’s running again! – Democrat politicos Mark Penn and Andrew Stein have a great piece in the Wall Street Journal today titled “Hillary Will Run Again.”  No, it’s not a belated Halloween fright piece – it’s real, serious stuff, and they happen to be right: The Pantsuit Princess is going to make yet another run for the presidency in 2020.

And of course, this new run will see the Fainting Felon “re-brand” herself for about 235th time, this time as a far-left firebrand!  You know, kind of like Alexandria Ocasio Cortez only without the Mac ‘n Cheese!  Aren’t you all thrilled?

As you can see from the photo below, she’s raring and ready to go, and has a closet full of her favorite hospital gowns to wear on the campaign trail:

 

Penn and Stein believe she will easily win the party’s nomination, and they are right.  Because, Democrats.

That is all.
