President Trump’s Tough Talk on Big Tech Must Be Followed with Substantive Action

Strong rhetoric isn’t enough to stop Big Tech’s Orwellian, anti-American censorship measures.

Last week, President Donald J. Trump did what no other public official would ever do: He re-tweeted InfoWars.

This sent the fake news media into a complete frenzy with low-rated CNN hack Brian Stelter actually calling Trump “the InfoWars President.”

Despite their hyperbole, the CNN commentators are not exactly wrong. Trump was elected because he would talk about “conspiracy theories” that no other candidate would ever dare broach. Trump engaged the populist right when nobody in the Washington D.C. bubble had the guts to do so, and he was rewarded the Presidency as a result.

Trump at least innately understands the power of the anti-establishment message, and social media dissidents were certainly thrilled that the President used his tremendous bully pulpit to amplify the message of the censored voices.

However, we cannot take for granted that Trump will follow through on his strong rhetoric. There have been times where Trump has stated that he would be “observing” important issues only to follow his declarations with total inaction.

Trump once claimed that he was intending to end birthright citizenship via executive order shortly before the 2018 mid-terms, but following the elections, no action was taken on this front, and it was quickly forgotten.

The President also claimed that he was ordering Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to “closely study” the genocidal murder of white farmers in South Africa by militant black terrorists. No concrete action ever emerged from that either.

President Trump performs the best when he is being pressured by his base. When his supporters lose themselves in the euphoria of Trump’s constant ownage of the libs, he can veer extensively from his electoral mandate.

We are seeing it right now with on the crucial issue of immigration where foreign labor is being imported to the U.S. for low and high wage jobs to boost corporate profit margins at the expense of native workers.

On foreign policy, Trump has similarly strayed from his ‘America First’ mandate by inviting neoconservatives such as Mike Pompeo, Elliott Abrams and John Bolton into his administration. Now regime-change wars are becoming real possibilities in Venezuela and Iran, despite the fact that candidate Trump campaigned against incursions such as the Iraq War.

If the grassroots stops applying pressure on the issue of tech censorship, it may depart from Trump’s radar and fall by the wayside. We cannot allow that to happen. Because as urgent as the issues of immigration and foreign policy are, stopping the Big Tech monopoly from enacting the Orwellian nightmare is of paramount importance.

Lawyers in the Trump administration should be considering all of the options at their disposal from using anti-trust laws to amending enforcement of the Communications Decency Act to classifying tech giants as public utilities. In fact, they should have been at this for quite some time already.

The time has passed for bromides about conservative principles and waxing poetic about the free market. Conservatism has conserved nothing except corporate power. The free market is a misnomer, as powerful multinationals dictate modern capitalism through government privilege.

It’s past time to shake off Chamber of Koch influence like a bad case of fleas, and proceed toward defeating hostile tech giants who are as rabid as AOC in their leftist activist push to destroy our bedrock freedoms.

We must keep the fire burning, with campaigns on problematic social media platforms as well as phone campaigns and other forms of agitation. This life-or-death struggle for freedom of speech cannot go down the memory hole. We owe it to our posterity to defeat the greatest evil of our times, Big Brother.

Is The Best Direct Cash Relief Plan Found Outside the Halls of Congress?

Published

on

With every hour passing it appears that the leadership and members of the United States Senate are exposing their inability to manage and provide the necessary help to assure that America’s families and workers are able to survive the public health and economic crisis that most are experiencing from the current Chinese Virus pandemic.

In the last few weeks Senate leadership from both parties have put forward plans that appear to be means-tested bailouts for big corporations and banks but fail to address putting cash directly into the hands of the majority of Americans.

In the same time frame Americans have seen their retirements and investments tank to the tune of trillions lost, experienced tens of thousands of lay-offs, the local public schools have closed for the foreseeable future, local police are unable to stop looting, and new polls show that 71% of Americans have been negatively harmed by the Chinese Virus pandemic.

And where our Senators have failed, it seems President Trump has not.

Instead of just listening to the lobbyists and policy influencers of the inner halls of Congress, President Trump is open to the advice and ideas of people outside of government, people who are not deeply rooted in the D.C. Swamp, and those who actually give a damn about what happens to Americans.

In a recent Tweet Eric Bolling, a bestselling author and conservative political commentator said that he had a “comprehensive conversation” with President Trump about a direct cash relief effort that Bolling has labeled “Plan2020”.

The idea behind “Plan2020” is that every American family who makes less than two hundred thousand a year in income would receive a debit card with $2300 on it. The card would be used to cover food, gas, medical needs, transportation costs, and other necessities that Americans may need during the current crisis.

The “Plan2020” card would be a means of sidestepping any industry bailout while assuring local economies receive a much needed boost.

The interesting catch behind the “Plan2020” cards is that the funds on the cards expire after thirty days but will be reloaded if the President continues the national emergency and it would be a form of nontaxable income.

On Friday long time Trump associate Steve Bannon endorsed the “Plan2020” card idea on his “War Room: Epidemic” podcast calling it a way “that cash is forced back into the system, back into the hands of the little guy”.

Understandably there are critics of Mr. Bolling’s idea, but unlike the plans that are being formed deep inside the D.C. Swamp, his “Plan2020” correctly provides a bailout for America’s families and local economies instead of multi-billion dollar corporations, many who have connections to Communist China.
