Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Josh Hawley (R-MO) announced to reporters on Thursday that they intend to subpoena Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey over his social media platform’s Draconian policies against free speech.
“We have seen Big Tech, we have seen Twitter and Facebook actively interfering in this election in a way that has no precedent in this country,” Cruz told the reporters.
Cruz explained the situation with regards to the New York Post and their story about Hunter Biden and the implications for former vice president and Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden.
“Never before have we seen active censorship of a major press publication with serious allegations of one of the two candidates for president. That was last night,” he said.
Cruz explained how Twitter has doubled down with even more censorship against the Post after they released a follow-up article on Thursday detailing Hunter Biden’s crony deals with Chinese interests.
“This is election interference, and we are 19 days out from an election. It has no precedent in the history of democracy,” Cruz said.
Cruz noted he is working with Graham, who is Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, to ready a subpoena for Dorsey to testify regarding his company’s hostile business practices next Friday.
“Let me be clear: I don’t know if these New York Post stories are true or not. Those are questions Vice President Biden should answer, but Twitter and Facebook and Big Tech billionaires don’t get to censor political speech and actively interfere in the election. That’s what they are doing right now,” he said.
“The point is that the power behind these platforms has been taken to a level that truly is dangerous, I think, the stopping Americans from having these tools available to them from exercising their ability to share information with their friends,” Graham said.
“I think a subpoena from the judiciary committee is absolutely appropriate and in order. It is absolutely vital. We believe in a free press in this country. We also believe in free elections, and the attempt to rig an election, which is what we are seeing here, by monopolies is unprecedented in American history,” Hawley said, adding that Facebook should be subpoenaed along with Twitter.

Big League Politics has reported on the crackdown by Big Tech against conservative whistleblowing, which has increased drastically in the runup to the election:
Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe was recently locked out of his Twitter account for a nine-month-old tweet that supposedly violated a copyright shortly after he uncovered a Democrat ballot harvesting scheme operating out of Minneapolis, Minn. tied to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
The revelations demonstrated how the Somali-dominated areas of Minneapolis are rife with fraud, showing how importing the third world can negatively impact electoral integrity in the U.S.
O’Keefe was temporarily locked out of his account and unable to promote the ballot harvesting story for a short period. However, he eventually had functionality restore to his Twitter account. He believes the censorship is proving what a massive impact he is having in exposing the globalist establishment.
“They couldn’t even provide proof of a legitimate reason and point to the tweet in question!” O’Keefe wrote in a Tweet after returning to the social media platform.
“Some “copyright violation” and they wouldn’t even show the tweet in question,” he continued.
“[Project Veritas] has the tech overlords rattled…we’re winning,” O’Keefe added…
Big Tech is heavily invested in the Democrat vote steal against President Trump. These powerful globalist interests hope to pull off their anti-Trump color revolution in broad daylight and rape U.S. democracy in the process.
Social media corporations have emerged as a far greater threat to U.S. electoral integrity than the Rooskies ever could be.
Rand Paul Warns Third Party Will Rise if Republican Senators Vote with Democrats to Convict President Trump
The GOP is crumbling.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is warning that at least one-third of GOP senators will revolt and leave the party if Republicans join Democrats to convict the president.
This would potentially create the most viable third party in recent political history if Republican leadership is foolish enough to go down this path. Even though he refused to oppose the vote steal last week, Paul claims he and many of his colleagues intend to leave the party forever if the Senate goes through with impeachment.
“I didn’t agree with the fight that happened last week. I voted against over-turning the election,” Paul said while appearing on FOX News on Friday night. “But at the same time, the impeachment is a wrongheaded, partisan notion. If Republicans go along with it, it will destroy the party. A third of the Republicans will leave the party.”
“A third of the Republicans will leave the party,” Paul added. “This isn’t about, anymore, about the Electoral College, it’s about the future of the party, and whether you’re going to ostracize and excommunicate President Trump from the party. Well, guess what? Millions of his fans will leave as well.”
Paul made these responses after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) publicly flirted with the idea of voting to convict President Trump.
“I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate,” McConnell said.
Paul is putting McConnell and the rest of the GOP leadership on notice. This is the line in the sand as far as he is concerned.
“They will destroy the Republican Party. If leadership is complicit with an impeachment or if leadership votes for an impeachment, they will destroy the party,” Paul said.
“Like I say, I have opposed President Trump when I thought he was wrong, I’ve been for him when he was right. We did a lot of good things throughout the Trump presidency, and impeachment is purely a partisan thing,” he added.
The full segment with Paul and host Laura Ingraham can be seen here:
Big League Politics has reported on the division within the GOP since 10 Republican turncoats in the House join Democrats to impeach Trump for a second time:
Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.
“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”
“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added…
Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”
The realignment that is happening within the conservative movement might result in the destruction of the Republican Party. President Trump may ultimately destroy the GOP swamp.
