President Donald J. Trump met with Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey today, just hours after blasting the social network from his personal Twitter account.

“White House source confirms Twitter meeting with [Jack Dorsey] and [Trump] already happened today,” said Charlie Spiering.

Just minutes after Spiering’s Tweet, Trump himself confirmed the meeting.

“Great meeting this afternoon at the with from . Lots of subjects discussed regarding their platform, and the world of social media in general. Look forward to keeping an open dialogue!” he said.

 

Tuesday morning, Trump was at odds with the powerful microblogging platform, accusing it of playing “political games.”

“…..But should be much higher than that if Twitter wasn’t playing their political games. No wonder Congress wants to get involved – and they should. Must be more, and fairer, companies to get out the WORD!” Trump said.

His previous Tweet referenced a Fox News reporter who said he was the best thing to ever happen to Twitter, in which he called the company “very discriminatory” towards Republicans.

Twitter has often been accused of censorship of conservatives. Most recently, the company was sued by right-wing activist and journalist Laura Loomer after it banned her from the platform. One month ago, Twitter’s legal head said that it was “working closely” to censor Trump himself. Right wing figures like Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin McInnes, Alex Jones, and Roger Stone have all been permanently banned from the site.

Some do not think the platform can be saved from its own bias, and are already looking ahead to a world post-big tech.

Big League Politics reported:

Coming off of the heels of a smash CPAC speech, author and speaker Michele Malkin recommended a list of alternative social media platforms for conservatives on Thursday.

Malkin suggested that conservatives check out the alternatives to left-wing and biased platforms such as Facebook and Google on Twitter.

The platforms Malkin are promoting are new and insurgent alternatives to major Silicon Valley monopolies that regularly practice mass censorship, banning of conservative users, manipulation of search results, and much more.

FBI Arrests Hacker Connected to Katie Hill’s Campaign for Taking Down Primary Opponents’ Websites

This is real election interference.

Published

on

The FBI has arrested a California man connected to former Congresswoman Katie Hill for taking down the websites of two of her campaign opponents in 2018.

Arthur Dam was arrested Friday on charges of hacking into the websites of two Democrats who opposed Hill in the 2018 Democratic Primary for California’s 25th District. According to a criminal complaint regarding the arrest, Dam orchestrated a cyber attack on websites of two of Hill’s primary opponents, Jess Phoenix and Bryan Caforio. Both of their websites were disabled during a crucial moment of the primary, which Hill went on to win.

It was suspected during the primary that Hill was connected to the campaign website hacks, considering her own website was still intact. Dam’s connections to the former member of Congress- who was forced to resign from office in 2019 in light of a sex scandal surrounding her intimate affairs with a congressional staffer- appear to make that a likely possibility.

Dam is married to Hill’s former campaign fundraiser and district director in Congress, Kelsey O’Hara. In campaign finance records, Hill lists an in-kind campaign contribution for “graphic design and website security consultation.”

Some coincidences are merely just that. But it’s extremely hard to ignore Kate Hill’s “website security consultant” getting arrested for hacking into the campaign websites of her congressional primary opponents.

Hill has reinvented herself after her resignation from Congress as a result of the sex scandal, seemingly viewing herself as a victim.

Sexual involvement with subordinate employees is arguably a severe lapse of ethical judgement in any workplace. Perhaps one could forgive such poor decision-making, even if it’s made by a Member of Congress obligated to a higher standard.

But the lasting hacking arrest of Hill’s campaign security consultant make it likely that the former Democrat Congresswoman has more to answer for her own personal lapses in judgement.
