POTUS Pushes for Free Speech Protections After Online Culling of Conservative Views

The fight for free speech is on, and the President knows it.

It has been plain and obvious that some of the largest traffickers of data on the internet are no fans of conservative viewpoints.

Often, these companies are driven by young people, and very bright and revolutionary young people at that.  They’re young enough to have escaped some of the darker biases of the past, but they are perhaps too young to have the direct link to the knowledge necessary to prevent such atrocities from occurring again.

What these kids were taught in school about World War II was likely much different than what my generation was taught.  I vividly remember being made to memorize a timeline of events leading up to the conflict, as if to tell us “if, God forbid, you see these patterns again later in life, you need to remember what they led to”.

Censorship of opposing political viewpoints was part and parcel to the Nazi rise to power in the late 1930’s, and some of today’s tech giants are heading down that path once again.

President Trump took to Twitter on Friday evening and slammed social media censorship in reaction to Facebook’s recent crackdown of conspiracy theorists, a prominent anti-Semite, and other far-right figures, saying that he’s “monitoring and watching closely.”

On Thursday, Facebook permanently banned Nation of Islam founder Louis Farrakhan, InfoWars host Alex Jones, and rightwing provocateurs Milo Yiannopoulos, Laura Loomer, while Paul Joseph Watson. InfoWars’ page was also taken down.

“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology. The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today,” Facebook said in a statement to Fox News.

The President was none too fond of the move.

The President is right, and here’s why:

You, dear reader, likely have a fondness for a certain kind of music.  Let’s say it’s Classic Rock.  You run the gamut from Skynyrd to Zeppelin to Bad Company all in the span of an hour, without so much as missing a beat.

But, as a rock and roll sort of person, you’ve never been all that into Classical music.  Does that make you want to go out and destroy all the classical records and ban people from playing the Harpsichord?

No, it doesn’t, because we understand that other people like other things….and that’s okay.  Diversity of thought is one of the most critically important characteristics of our country, and we should be defending our opponents’ right to say what they believe, even if we don’t agree with it.

Israeli Prime Minister Has Historic Meeting With Saudi Prince In Saudi Arabia

Published

on

In a historic first for both Israel and Saudi Arabia, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman held a meeting in the city of Neom, Saudi Arabia. This is the first time that a publicly acknowledged meeting between a prime minister of the Israeli government and high-level officials of the government of Saudi Arabia has ever taken place. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo attended the historic event, along with Israeli Mossad Chief Yossi Cohen. https://twitter.com/AmichaiStein1/status/1330773342295646210 via The Daily Wire: The meeting is the latest development in the ongoing growth of Arab nations rejecting their previous hostility toward Israel and joining in the effort to counter Iran, which they see as the gravest threat to peace in the Middle East. Those developments were fostered by the Trump administration, which rejected the dangerous Iran nuclear deal embraced by the Obama administration and instead concentrated on bolstering relations between Israel and the surrounding Gulf states. The astonishing rapidity of Arab nations such as the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Sudan all joining the Abraham Accords within three months in 2020 represented a historic shift in the Middle East, nurtured by President Trump. It’s not surprising that Israel and Saudi Arabia would go public with the meeting between Netanyahu and the Saudi prince; they must be worried that a prospective Biden administration would coddle the despotic Iranian regime as the Obama administration did. Of course, all of these great strides toward peace in the Middle East could easily be destroyed if President Trump is not certified to be the winner of the 2020 presidential election. Former Vice President Joe Biden has already made it very clear he will rejoin the Iran nuclear deal, which will no doubt strain our relationship with Israel and many other nations in the region.

Leader For Warp Speed Program Says First Americans Could Receive COVID Vaccine In December

Published

on

Moncef Slaoui, the head of the U.S. coronavirus vaccine program, made an appearance on CNN over the weekend where he said that the first doses of the coronavirus vaccine could be administered to Americans around December 11. “Our plan is to be able to ship vaccines to the immunization sites within 24 hours from the approval, so I expect maybe on day two after approval on the 11th or the 12th of December,” Slaoui said. According to Slaoui, the efforts to get a vaccine ready as quickly as possible and distribute it among Americans is not going to be derailed if there happens to be a change in administration. via Newsmax: “All decisions are made, the train is running. Whether one administration or the other doesn’t, frankly, make a difference,” Slaoui said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” The operation “has been isolated from the administration, from the political environment, and the political context,” said Slaoui, a former head of GlaxoSmithKline’s vaccines operation. Yet information on the program isn’t been shared with the incoming Biden administration, he said, consistent with President Donald Trump’s failure to acknowledge his election loss. “I have been informed that I should not be saying anything that’s confidential to anybody, including, you know, anybody that’s not part of the administration, and therefore, I’ll act according to what the legal requirements are,” Slaoui stated. To summarize, Slaoui is saying that if President Trump’s lawsuits and recounts turn out to prove that Joe Biden really is the rightful president, the change in administration will not result in delays for the vaccine getting out to the people. Hopefully, this vaccine will turn out to be safe and effective, allowing folks to choose how they want to protect themselves and their loved ones from infection in the future.
