MSNBC host Joy Reid said that President Donald Trump is issuing a “threat to his fellow Americans” by using military tanks and planes in his Fourth of July Salute to America celebration in Washington, D.C.
President Trump plans to speak in front of the Lincoln Memorial and salute our military, of which he is Commander in Chief. Our military has yet to engage in a major regime-change war or costly nation-building experiment during Trump’s presidency, even as Trump pummeled ISIS in Syria with air strikes.
Joy Reid said that Trump “sort of aspires to be a mini-Putin or Kim Jong Un,” as evidenced by his patriotic American parade. Reid’s comments were flagged by the Washington Examiner.
“Who is that message to? It’s certainly not to tyrants because he likes tyrants, he loves tyrants. It’s not to Putin, it’s not to Kim Jong Un, it’s not to the Saudis,” Joy Reid stated.
“Is it to our friends? Is it to Western democracies, who he doesn’t particularly like? Or is it to us? Is it to the resistance in this country?” she said. “‘I got tanks, I have this military armada.’ The message is a threat. But it’s always a threat when you roll out your military. But it’s to whom is the threat, and I suspect that the threat is to his fellow Americans,” Joy Reid said.
“And I hate to say that, but I think that Donald Trump styles himself a tyrant, not a defeater of tyrants,” said Reid.
Embattled MSNBC host Joy Reid has finally come clean regarding offensive posts written on her blog more than a decade ago.
“While I published my blog, stating in 2005, I wrote thousands of posts in real time on issues of the day,” she said in a statement. “There are things I deeply regret and am embarrassed by, things I would have said differently and issues where my position has changed. Today I’m sincerely apologizing again.”
Tacitly admitted is the fact that Reid herself wrote the posts, which she recently denied in an apology, claiming that her blog had been hacked.
The host of far-left MSNBC’s “AM Joy” is apologizing for the second time in nearly a month after old posts surfaced in which Reid disparaged Sen. John McCain, questioned whether Al-Qaeda was behind the 9/11 attacks, and suggested that Israel should not be a sovereign nation.
Thanks to Spineless, Establishment Republicans, Senate Panel Delays Vote to Subpoena Big Tech CEOs
Republicans Continue to Show Pathetic They are on the Issues that Matter Most
America First nationalist’s hopes of having Big Tech CEOs testify before Congress about allegations of censorship directed towards the Right were temporarily dashed on October 19, 2020.
Politico reported that the Senate Judiciary Committee delayed plans to vote on subpoenas to force the CEOs of Twitter and Facebook to go before the Senate and be questioned about their anti-Right wing censorship policies.
Some Republicans ended up having cold feet and decided to postpone the vote much to the disappointment of right wing activists who have complained about Big Tech’s anti-free speech policies.
President Donald Trump and a number of nationalist Republicans have sharply criticized Facebook and Twitter over their censorship of a controversial New York Post report that exposed Hunter Biden, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, and his corrupt behavior.
Originally, GOP officials in the Judiciary Committee announced plans to hold a markup on October 20 to determine if they would subpoena Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to get his perspective on allegations concerning his company’s policies that muzzle conservative viewpoints. Twitter denies claims regarding Twitter’s censorship policies.
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, who is the Chair of the Judiciary Committee, revealed that the planned vote would also call on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify.
The panel stated on October 19 that it would determine whether they would issue subpoenas during a executive session on October 22 where it will also allegedly approve Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. The committee declared in a statement that it will maintain negotiations with the companies “to allow for voluntary testimony” by the CEO. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, the panel will proceed to take a vote on the subpoenas “at a date to be determined.”
The subpoenas would compel the tech big wigs to testify on the reports of “suppression and/or censorship” of New York Post stories and on “any other content moderation policies, practices, or actions that may interfere with or influence elections for federal office,” according to a committee document released on October 19.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who is the chair of the Judiciary’s Subcommittee on the Constitution said to reporters that he’s expecting the committee to preside over testimonies from the Twitter and Facebook chiefs “shortly” regardless of whether they come to the decision on their own volition.
“One way or another, either voluntarily or pursuant to subpoena, they will testify and they will testify before the election,” Cruz stated.
In a separate hearing for the Senate Commerce Committee, Zuckerberg and Dorsey will join Google CEO Sundar Pichai on October 28 for a hearing on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which generally shields Big Tech companies from a liability.
Cruz, who is a member of both Judiciary and Commerce committees, wants each panel to carry out their own hearings with the tech chiefs before election day. “I believe we need a separate hearing in Judiciary because the issues being discussed in the two committees are different,” Cruz remarked.
Big Tech has become too powerful, especially during a time when social media has become the de facto public square. Republicans will need to get serious about making online speech receive the same treatment as general political speech.
