FLASHBACK: Laura Loomer Files FEC Complaint Against Twitter for Trying to Derail Her Campaign

Published

on

Congressional candidate Laura Loomer is currently mired in a defamation lawsuit against Facebook which is still stuck in the courts.

The embattled conservative candidate and alternative media personality has made waves by deciding to run for office in Florida’s 21st congressional district after suffering a vicious deplatforming campaign at the hands of Big Tech.

Short-term memory often keeps us from getting the bigger picture. Going back to January 27, 2020, Loomer filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) against Twitter, claiming that the company made an in-kind donation to her political opponents by depriving her access to the social media platform.

Charlie Spies is Loomer’s legal counsel and has a number of high-profile FEC cases under his belt. Spies said in a statement, “This is a first-of-its-kind complaint and takes into account the influential role that social media corporations play in our elections.”

Spies added, “Once Ms. Loomer became a federal candidate, it became illegal for Twitter to ban her while providing free access to her Democrat opponent. Corporate owned public forums like Twitter must either provide equal time and access for all candidates for public office, or charge market value. Twitter should not be exempt from Equal Time laws, and a violation like the one occurring with Ms. Loomer is an impermissible in-kind corporate contribution to her opponent.”

The Equal Times laws that Spies alluded to have been in place for some time and outline that broadcasters must provide equal time to all political candidate who request it. Put simply, if a Democrat is allowed to have five minutes of airtime on a radio or TV station, their Republican opponent must be allotted the same amount of time.

Allum Bokhari of Breitbart News highlighted how this standard would be applied to social media:

Applied to social media platforms, this would imply that if a Democrat candidate is allowed unlimited access to a service like Twitter, then their opponent must be allowed the same level of access. Loomer’s complaint alleges that by granting her political opponents access to the platform while denying it to her, Twitter is making an illegal in-kind contribution to those opponents.

“Twitter has become a primary method of communication for candidates and elected officials to speak directly to their supporters without the filter of the media,” remarked Spies. “President Trump proved this in 2016 and continues the practice today. Twitter’s continued ban against Laura Loomer, prevents her campaign from having equal access that is required under the law.”

The entire FEC complaint can be found here.

Loomer has been one of the leading voices against political correctness in the Trump era.

Her deplatforming illustrates the lengths that legacy outlets will go to silence dissidents in America.

Loomer’s example shows why people from Second Amendment champions to free speech advocates should make common cause with figures like Loomer.

If the Right wants to preserve freedom in America, it should do everything it can to back Loomer and hopefully get her elected to Congress.

Globalist Oligarch George Soros Drops $50 Million Into 2020 Election

Published

on

The Free Beacon reported that George Soros has pitched in $50 million to Democrats’ PACs and campaigns in the 2020 election cycle.

These contributions represent a record amount of financial support for the billionaire oligarch.

In the 2020 cycle, Soros stepped up his political spending through the Democracy PAC, which he established in 2019 to dump large sums of money into other leftist organizations.

According to new filings to the Federal Election Commission, the PAC donated nearly $17 million last quarter, which brought its total spending for this cycle to $48 million. Soros donated $4 million directly to Democrat campaigns and committees without first funneling the money into his PAC.

The $52 million cash injection is over twice the amount that Soros donated in the 2016 presidential election cycle —  $22 million.

Ironically enough, Democrat candidates who have benefited from Soros’ generous candidates have lamented about the influence of money in politics. According to Joe Biden’s government reform plan, he vows to “reduce the corrupting influence of money in politics.” Biden’s website says, “We could improve our politics overnight if we flushed big money from the system and had public financing of our elections…. Democracy works best when a big bank account or a large donor list are not prerequisites for office.”

The Right has criticized Democrat hypocrisy regarded money in politics, while many Democrats still receive Soros money. “While Democrats across the country sanctimoniously rail against the influence of dark money in politics, their party’s largest donors are bankrolling a massive web of liberal organizations to get them elected,” a GOP operative said to the Washington Free Beacon early in July. “George Soros’s unprecedented spending further highlights just how dependent Democrats are on contributions from billionaires, despite their hypocritical rhetoric.”

Soros pitched in $500,000 to the Biden Victory Fund, which has already pulled in $83 million for this cycle.

In 2020, Soros is starting to become sneakier with his electoral spending Previously, he donated to groups directly under his name. Now, he is transferring tens of millions from the Fund for Policy Reform, a nonprofit with a budget of $750 within his vast Open Society Foundation network, into Democracy PAC. From there, the PAC donates it to other Democrat PACs and committees.

Soros views this election cycle as a crucial moment in American history. During a speech at the World Economic Forum earlier this year, the octogenarian billionaire declared that the “fate of the world” is at stake and called Trump a “con man” and “authoritarian” who is “willing to sacrifice the national interests for his personal interests.”

Soros is one of the most prolific globalist oligarchs in the world. His support comes in handy for the Left, which is constantly in need of funds to promote their identity politics causes and other projects such as radical gun control.

This will not be the last time we will hear about Soros.
