President Donald Trump signed an executive order regarding social media regulation today after Twitter hit one of his posts with a so-called fact check from the fake news.
“What they choose to fact check and what they choose to ignore or even promote is nothing more than a political activism group… And it’s inappropriate,” Trump said at a press conference before signing the executive order.
“This censorship and bias is a threat to freedom itself. Imagine if your phone company silenced or edited your conversation. Social media companies have vastly more power and more reach than any phone company in the United States,” Trump added.
The president described his executive order as a measure to “protect and uphold the free speech and rights of the American people.” He blasted social media corporations for abusing their special privileges under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA), which shields them from liabilities for content posted on their vast platforms.
He claims his executive order will revoke Section 230 protections for tech giants that capriciously censor content to push a partisan political agenda, and empower the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to crack down on fraudulent or deceptive practices by tech corporations.
“What they’re doing is tantamount to monopoly, you can say. It’s tantamount to taking over the airwaves. Can’t let it happen, otherwise we are not going to have a democracy. We’re not going to have anything to do with a Republic,” Trump explained.
While the official text has not been released to the public, a draft of the executive order has been released and contains strong language rebuking the tech giants.
“In a country that has long cherished the freedom of expression, we cannot allow a limited number of online platforms to hand-pick the speech that Americans may access and convey online,” the draft order says. “This practice is fundamentally un-American and anti-democratic. When large, powerful social media companies censor opinions with which they disagree, they exercise a dangerous power.”
The draft of the order also claims that tech firms are “invoking inconsistent, irrational, and groundless justifications to censor or otherwise punish Americans’ speech here at home.”
Trump’s campaign surrogates and biggest supporters in the legislature are applauding his move to finally push back against Orwellian censorship on social media platforms.
“Twitter is engaging in 2020 election interference. They are putting their thumb on the scale,” said Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), while appearing on Steve Bannon’s podcast War Room Pandemic. “The notion that they would outsource fact checking to people who have been wrong about everything is an insult.”
“We always knew that Silicon Valley would pull out all the stops to obstruct and interfere with President Trump getting his message through to voters,” Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement. “Partnering with the biased fake news media ‘fact checkers’ is only a smoke screen Twitter is using to try to lend their obvious political tactics some false credibility.”
“This plays right into President Trump’s hands,” said Jason Miller, who worked as the communications director for Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. “They basically handed him a massive gift.”
It remains to be seen if Trump’s order will actually have the effect of stopping Big Tech censorship, but it certainly puts the focus on their coordinated push against freedom of expression.
Conservative Leaders Wonder if Jared Kushner is Incompetent or Actively Sabotaging Trump Administration
Is Kushner stupid or malicious?
The most influential adviser within the Trump administration has arguably been Jared Kushner, the President’s son-in-law. He has pushed the administration to the Left, using his power to shift the White House on issues like immigration, criminal justice, and foreign policy.
As the Trump re-election campaign sputters, conservative leaders have placed the blame directly on Kushner. His fingerprints are all over the campaign strategy, as they are virtually every other aspect of the Trump operation.
“Trump has a Jared problem,” an immigration hawk who works with the White House told The Spectator. Others roll their eyes and reference “four more years of Jared” when talking about Trump’s re-election chances.
Kushner has become Trump’s go-to guy on the most important issues facing America, despite observers referring to him as “slow,” “a moron,” and “not really that bright.” Conservative leaders have remarked that Kushner knew little if anything about his own comprehensive immigration plan while he was attempting to sell the plan to them. He apparently could not speak on issues like chain migration and diversity visa lottery, being clueless about the areas in need of reform.
“He presents as someone very knowledgeable and in the know until he faces questions,” a source close to the White House said. “He goes off the record or on deep background so people don’t realize he’s a f**king idiot.”
While many attribute Kushner’s missteps to idiocy, others believe that there may be nefarious motives behind his blundering. They believe that Kushner, whose Soros connections are well-documented, is intentionally sabotaging the Trump administration on behalf of the globalist establishment.
“I know for a fact that there was a document drafted for the President to sign saying replacing Americans with foreign workers was not in the national interest, making it explicitly illegal,” a source close to the administration said. “All it would have taken is a stroke of a pen. When I would ask why it hadn’t been done, the answer was always ‘Jared’.”
“The depths and lengths Jared is going to to stab Trump in the back [are] quite profound,” another source said. “Trump’s been burned by Jared so many times,” yet another claimed.
Conservatives have accused Kushner of arranging a “Greek chorus” to keep the President in an echo chamber where his consol always wins out. Kushner is said to drive Trump to other advisors who are in his pocket and will reiterate his position. People rumored to have crossed Kushner, such as Gen. John Kelly, Stephen Bannon and Kirstjen Nielsen, are no longer in the fold. Meanwhile, Kushner grows more powerful despite a laundry list of mishaps.
The worst case of Kushner’s influence on the administration may have come in Trump’s response to nationwide riots following the death of George Floyd. Kushner and two of his lackeys in the administration, Brooke Rollins and Ja’Ron Smith, reportedly convinced Trump that taking control and restoring law and order was a poor decision because it might offend black voters, who are a crucial part of Trump’s re-election strategy.
Big League Politics has reported on how Kushner brought in communist Van Jones to design the President’s police reform order, pushed to cleanse the GOP platform of language offensive to the LGBT community, plotted to keep foreign worker visas in place during the COVID-19 recession, and put novice Brad Parscale at the helm of Trump’s re-election campaign.
Whether Kushner is motivated by malice or just stunning ineptitude, he has emerged as the weak link of the administration who has capitalized on nepotism in order to become a menace for all supporters of the President Trump’s “America First” agenda.
