Trump Supporter Goes After Big Tech When Doctored Video Said She Was Voting For Biden

Published

on

Joan Herbert, an ardent Trump supporter, wasn’t the type of person to blast her political views all over social media like so many folks this day and age, but decided to be part of a campaign advertisement to let people know why she is pro-Trump.

Filming the advertisement in a darkened room, the mother of four delivered her message without the use of her actual, physical voice, flipping through cue cards instead of speaking.

One of those cards read, “I’m afraid to say this out loud. I won’t risk my children’s future with Biden.”

However, after the ad started circulating, friends began to call her up confused and understanding which of the actual candidates she was supporting for president.

“Some people called and asked, ‘Which is the real one? Are you really a Biden supporter or a Trump supporter,’” Herbert said.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

Within hours of her video hitting social media, it had been picked up by Republican Voters Against Trump and edited to replace her cue cards with words attacking the president and his record.

“I voted for Trump in 2016,” one reads. “It was the biggest mistake of my life.”

The altered video remains available on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube despite Herbert’s efforts to have it removed. Its makers insist it is clearly a parody and, therefore, not designed to mislead.

As a result of this video, there is now a huge dispute about how social media companies should handle manipulated footage like this so that the original message of the posters is kept intact and ensures they are protected against misinformation, while also protecting the right to post satire and parodies.

However, President Trump’s campaign is saying the rules here are not being applied fairly and that Herbert is a victim of the anti-conservative bias of certain social media companies in Silicon Valley.

“Joan Herbert embraced her First Amendment right to express her views in support of President Trump, and in return, the left exploited that expression — and the arbitrary ‘rules’ created by social media companies aren’t helping her fix the issue,” spokeswoman Samantha Zager said of the incident.

Officials have gone on to point out how it seems the president’s social media accounts are held to higher standards and subjected to stricter rules than others. For example, when he tweeted out a parody video featuring one toddler chasing after another one with Fake CNN chyrons that said, “Terrified toddler runs from racist baby” and “Racist baby probably a Trump voter,” the content was slapped witha “modified” label on Twitter.

Shortly thereafter it was removed entirely by the company.

Efforts to have the video removed required complicated proof that she was the copyright holder, something she did not have.

Twitter told her that “only the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on their behalf” could apply to have the video removed. The company did not respond to a request for further comment.

All that’s being asked for here is that Trump and his supporters receive the same kind of protection that Big Tech companies provide for those who are left-wing in their politics. In other words, fairness and consistency. That doesn’t seem like a very tall order, but for the left, apparently, it is.

That might have something to do with the fact that many of these companies wish to help the Democratic Party by silencing the voices of the opposition.

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.
