Stone Cold Censorship: Twitter exiles Roger Stone, disables his account, access to followers

Published

on

A long-time ally of President Donald J. Trump was banned from using his Twitter account Saturday and his 298,000 followers were removed from his access without warning.

“While I am uncertain why, sometimes the stark truth offends some people,” said Roger J. Stone Jr., a former aide to President Richard M. Nixon, who unleashed a Tweetstorm on his critics and particularly CNN on-air presenters, especially Don Lemon, whom he called a “covksucker” very close to a pejorative term for a gay man–Lemon is gay.

Stone also Tweeted that Lemon was: “dumber than dog shit” and “a dull-witted arrogant partyboi.”

Initially, Stone’s friends reported that his suspension was only a three-hour timeout.

In time, it became clear after three hours passed, that the suspension was permanent.

Stone said he remains defiant.

“I am going to sue Twitter on multiple grounds,” he said.

Stone told New York magazine: “I am advised I have a very strong legal case. Twitter wants to avoid being regulated like a utility. No one has been willing to file the anti-trust case. I am.”

Many Tweeters drew attention to leftwing Twitter accounts, such as the one run by Keith Olbermann.

Others on Twitter celebrated Stone’s banishment.

And

New Twitter guidelines were released just last week and one rule, in particular, seems to apply to Stone:

Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease. We also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories.

“Tweets that glorify violence will be subject to company action. Currently, Twitter takes enforcement action against direct violent threats, vague violent threats and wishes/hopes of serious physical harm, death, or disease serious,” Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said.

According to an internal memo: Twitter executives said a more aggressive policy and enforcement approach will result in the removal of more content from our service and they are comfortable making this decision, assuming that we will only be removing abusive content that violates their rules.

KENYA: Nairobi News Outlet Declares ‘Barack Obama is Home, Finally’

Published

on

Barack Obama is home. That is, according to The East African, a verified news agency in Nairobi, Kenya.

The former President is in Kenya as part of a scheduled trip to Africa where he is set to meet with Uhuru Kenyatta, the president of Kenya. Following his visit to Kenya, Obama will then travel to South Africa to meet with political leaders and attend a meeting for the Obama Foundation.

On Monday, the publication tweeted an article about Obama’s visit to Kenya with the caption, “.@BarackObama is home, finally #ObamaReturns.”

The word “home” was an interesting word choice for the publication, and quickly caught the attention of thousands of Twitter users who noticed that the Kenyan publication was claiming Obama’s home or origin is Kenya, a claim that holds explosive political ramifications.

When Obama ran for president in 2008, questions concerning the legitimacy of his birth certificate came into question when his opponents accused him of having a phony birth certificate. In order to become President of the United States, one must be a natural-born citizen of the U.S., as required by Article Two of the U.S. Constitution.

Many people believe that Obama, who claims to have been born in Hawaii, was actually born in Kenya where his father if from. One of the most famous individuals who publicly stated that they don’t believe Obama was born in the United States was pre-Oval Office Donald Trump.

In 2011, to quell rumors, the White house released a copy of what looks like a long form birth certificate from Hawaii. However, there are many Americans who still believe Obama was born in Kenya, and not on American soil.

During Obama’s presidency, President Trump, prior to announcing his run for candidacy, caused a firestorm on October 24, 2012 when he announced that he would make a $5 million donation to charity if Obama produce his citizenship and college records.

During an interview in 2014 on Irish TV, Trump said, “The president (Obama) should come clean. A lot of people feel it wasn’t a proper certificate.”

However, in September of 2016, Trump held a press conference in which he said, “President Obama was born in the United States”, causing many on the Left to accuse Conservatives of promoting what they dubbed “birther conspiracy theories”.

Two years later, Trump is President of the United States of America, and Obama has returned “home”, to Kenya, where the local media has claimed Obama as one of their own, a Kenyan.

According to Mwakilishi, “Kenya’s diaspora news leader”, Barack Obama will be accompanied by Oprah Winfrey during his trip throughout Africa. Winfrey recently flirted with the idea of a 2020 presidential run and has been making political waves after she gave a highly politically charged speech about Trump at the Golden Globes in January.

In 2013, President Obama awarded Winfrey with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. However, it is unknown why she will be accompanying Obama on his trip to Africa and why it wasn’t previously disclosed in his official statement about the trip.

“President Obama looks forward to meeting these emerging leaders for the first time, hearing about the extraordinary work they are doing across Africa, and discussing how the Obama Foundation can support their civic leadership development,” Obama’s spokesperson said in an official statement released regarding the former President’s visit to Africa.

Obama’s trip to Kenya is reportedly his first trip back to Kenya since leaving office. However, in June, Big League Politics learned from sources on the ground in Kenya that Obama visited his family in Kenya at the end of June in an unannounced secret trip, which raises the question: What is Obama hiding in Kenya?
