Phone Thrown President Trump NRA

Video shows an attendee threw their phone at President Donald J. Trump during his speech at the National Rifle Association as he began his speech earlier today.

As President Trump entered the stage to deliver his speech to the NRA this morning, video captured a member of the crowd throw their phone toward the stage. It landed in the crowd, seemingly nowhere near the president.

Reports indicate that the would-be attacker was swiftly arrested by authorities. The president delivered his speech without interruption, continuing without acknowledging the event.

President Trump’s life and person has been threatened numerous times since he entered the national stage as a politician in 2015.

While on the campaign trail, a man possibly associated with the Islamic State was arrested after rushing the stage while President Trump spoke in to an Ohio crowd in March of 2016. He was able to touch the stage before security tackled him and removed him from the area.

In June of 2016, another man attempted to take a police officer’s weapon with the purpose of shooting President Trump as he spoke to a crowd in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Briton was later arrested and admitted he wanted to shoot President Trump.

On November 5, 2016, the day before his historic election, President Trump was rushed off the stage by Secret Service after a member of the audience shouted “gun,” leading to the arrest of a member of the crowd. It was later determined there was no weapon present, but there was no report as to whether the potential attacker actually sought to harm President Trump.

It is unclear what motivated the attendee of the NRA speech to hurl his phone toward the president, but it would seem to continue a worrying pattern of behavior.

Parler CEO John Matze Forced to Flee Home Under Deluge of Left-Wing Terror Threats

Matze is suing Amazon for deplatforming Parler.

Parler CEO John Matze has been forced to flee his home and go into hiding after receiving an onslaught of left-wing death threats. Parler, a free speech social media platform, has been temporarily shut down in an extensive deplatforming campaign. Amazon promptly cut Parler’s access to its Web Services after the US Capitol riot earlier this month, cherry-picking examples of content that violate Parler’s terms of service and claiming the platform is being used for violent purposes.

Matze made the frank admission in a court filing for Parler’s lawsuit against Amazon, requesting that the court keep any disclosures about his personal life and location secret. Parler is currently suing Amazon in federal court for its immediate revocation of Parler’s hosting agreement, arguing that Amazon agreed to provide 30 days notice before any potential termination of Parler’s hosting, pursuant to the party’s original agreement.

Matze reveals that he’s been forced to leave his home and go into hiding with his family, citing Amazon Web Services’ “vilification” of his company.

Employees of Amazon have allegedly been threatened and harassed as well for shutting down Parler. The court filing in favor of redaction references these threats in requesting the court provide redaction of personal information to both sides.

Both sides of this dispute have shown that their employees have suffered real harassment and threats—including, on both sides, death threats—owing to the charged nature of this litigation.

Parler therefore agrees with AWS that safety and security concerns justify the limited sealings requested here,” Parler requests in the Amazon lawsuit.

Parler’s administrators are still seeking to return the free speech social media platform to full operation, although it could take weeks to bring it back online. They may have learned a lesson about the futility of contracting hosting services with a Big Tech monopoly such as Amazon.
