Senate Democrats have created a secret plan supposedly to save us all from “Russian bots”

A leaked memo circulating among Senate Democrats contains a host of bonkers authoritarian proposals. Mussolini and Stalin would be proud.

Taking their cue from Mussolini and Stalin, the Democrat Party has drawn up a new plan for a full government take over of the Internet in order to ban all conservative speech.

The Senate Democrats have created this secret plan supposedly to save us all from “Russian bots,” but the real purpose is to ban all speech they disagree with and so that they can control every word you see, every song you hear, and every video you watch on the Internet.

According to Reason.com:

Trending: WATCH: Anti-Trump Fox News Host Throws Hissy Fit After Mueller Report Vindicates Trump

A leaked memo circulating among Senate Democrats contains a host of bonkers authoritarian proposals for regulating digital platforms, purportedly as a way to get tough on Russian bots and fake news. To save American trust in “our institutions, democracy, free press, and markets,” it suggests, we need unprecedented and undemocratic government intervention into online press and markets, including “comprehensive (GDPR-like) data protection legislation” of the sort enacted in the E.U.

Titled “Potential Policy Proposals for Regulation of Social Media and Technology Firms,” the draft policy paper—penned by Sen. Mark Warner and leaked by an unknown source to Axios—the paper starts out by noting that Russians have long spread disinformation, including when “the Soviets tried to spread ‘fake news’ denigrating Martin Luther King” (here he fails to mention that the Americans in charge at the time did the same). But NOW IT’S DIFFERENT, because technology.

“Today’s tools seem almost built for Russian disinformation techniques,” Warner opines. And the ones to come, he assures us, will be even worse.

Remember how Russian murderer Joseph Stalin slowly erased from the Soviet history books all of the people who helped him create the Soviet Republic? Eventually, Stalin became the only “hero” left in the USSR’s “history” books. He did this to eliminate all trace of the others who were part of Soviet history so that he could control every aspect of life of the Russian people.

This is what Sen. Warner aspires to do.

Reason continues:

Other proposals include more disclosure requirements for online political speech, more spending to counter supposed cybersecurity threats, more funding for the Federal Trade Commission, a requirement that companies’ algorithms can be audited by the feds (and this data shared with universities and others), and a requirement of “interoperability between dominant platforms.”

The paper also suggests making it a rule that tech platforms above a certain size must turn over internal data and processes to “independent public interest researchers” so they can identify potential “public health/addiction effects, anticompetitive behavior, radicalization,” scams, “user propagated misinformation,” and harassment—data that could be used to “inform actions by regulators or Congress.”

And—of course— these include further revisions to Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, recently amended by Congress to exclude protections for prostitution-related content. A revision to Section 230 could provide the ability for users to demand takedowns of certain sorts of content and hold platforms liable if they don’t abide, it says, while admitting that “attempting to distinguish between true disinformation and legitimate satire could prove difficult.”

This is completely anti-American. Warner wants nothing less than 100% control of what you are allowed to put on the Internet.

But this is what Democrats want. They are pining for the days when they fully controlled all media like they did in the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. And they will do nothing less than gut the First Amendment to get that power back.

DELUSIONAL: Rachel Maddow Starts Crying On Air After Mueller Report Vindicates Trump

No joke. She actually CRIED on air!

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow is everything that’s wrong with America. She doesn’t understand what makes the United States great, and she’s ignorant when it comes to learning her history. After Special Counsel Robert Mueller turned in his final Russia collusion report to Attorney General Bill Barr, Maddow actually cried on live TV. That’s not hyperbole. She actually cried.

She’s now calling upon Congress to keep digging for links to Russia collusion, regardless of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s findings. From Daily Wire: Failed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton doesn’t want Congress to give up on pursuing evidence of President Donald Trump colluding with Russian officials to impact the 2016 elections, even if Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report comes up empty. In a podcast with former Daily Beast chief Tina Brown recorded earlier this week, Clinton was clear in delivering her marching orders to the Democratic Congress: keep digging. “There is enough grounds in what has already been made public for the government, for Congress in particular, to be doing more with it,” Clinton said. “And I’m pleased that under Speaker Pelosi, the Democrats are beginning to hold hearings and try to connect some of these dots.” Why would Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, seemingly come from out of nowhere to blindside the president? Lynne Patton, who works under Ben Carson at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, knows the answer. In short, it involved a lengthy prison sentence – but not for Cohen. Patton wrote in a Facebook post: What many of you may not be aware of is the fact that I can personally confirm that the ONLY…

BOMBSHELL: Ilhan Omar Holds Secret Fundraisers With Islamic Groups Tied to Terror (Details)

Kind of a big friggin’ deal, isn’t it?

John Salvatore

Published

Well, here’s something else that won’t endear Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) with conservatives. Apparently, Omar has been holding secret fundraisers with Islamic groups that are tied to terror. Makes you wonder, was Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro right when she said Omar wasn’t “America first?” Food for thought, at the very least. Check it out… From Free Beacon: Democratic freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) has been holding a series of secret fundraisers with groups that have been tied to the support of terrorism, appearances that have been closed to the press and hidden from public view. The content of these speeches, given to predominately Muslim audiences, remains unknown, prompting some of Omar’s critics to express concern about the type of rhetoric she is using before these paying audiences, particularly in light of the lawmaker’s repeated use of anti-Semitic tropes in public. Omar recently spoke in Florida at a private event hosted by Islamic Relief, a charity organization long said to have deep ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Israel. Over the weekend, she will appear at another private event in California that is hosted by CAIR-CA PAC, a political action committee affiliated with the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR a group that was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive terror-funding incident. Pirro saw her show canceled for two consecutive Saturday nights after comments she made about freshman Democrat Omar. Many millions of Americans, including President Trump, were not pleased. In fact, it looks like Pirro might’ve been suspended. Check out the pictures below showing Fox News’s lineup. Notice there’s nothing about Pirro on Saturday, 3/23? About the suspension: —@brianstelter reports, per a source, that Fox News suspended @JudgeJeanine for two weeks following her comments on @IlhanMN. (Hence why she wasn’t on air…
