Now it’s going to get interesting…

President Trump is expected to order a review of the federal law that protects social media companies from content posted by their users days after Twitter labeled two of his tweets “potentially misleading.”

Full article, HERE. And he signed it, HERE.

Interestingly, Zuckerberg is apparently trying to distance FB from Twitter after the kerfluffle that has been stirred up, HERE

Twitter had a rather interesting non-response…

Unlike other prominent fact-checking operations, Twitter doesn’t display the names of the fact check’s authors.

“We’re adding a label to Tweets that then links to a Moment in order to give people on our service more context around what they’re seeing. This Moment includes a variety of information from various sources,” Twitter spokesman Trenton Kennedy told the Daily Caller News Foundation in an email.

And predictably, the left went nuts… And of course a dem senator ‘had’ to come out with a statement…

Sen. Ron Wyden called President Trump’s executive order targeting social media platforms a “plainly illegal” attempt to push “unfiltered lies.”

“I have warned for years that this administration was threatening 230 in order to chill speech and bully companies like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter into giving him favorable treatment. Today Trump proved me right. I expect those companies and every American who participates in online speech to resist this illegal act by all possible means,” Wyden said in a statement.

And then there is this article from the Federalist about mail in balloting…

A nationwide effort by Democrats is underway in at least 16 states to overturn restrictions on mail-in voting and third-party ballot harvesting. States where suits have been filed include the swing states of Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Florida.

Full article, HERE.

The gloves are coming off and the left is doing everything they can to ‘influence’ the 2020 election any way they can. Ballot harvesting, false signatures, ‘helping’ the elderly in nursing homes to ‘mark’ their ballots, etc… And ballots are showing up in the oddest places… SC ballots in MD? California’s ‘motor voter’ law, and they give illegals driver’s licenses, but do they register them to vote at the same time???

I wonder if anybody is checking graveyard’s mailboxes???

  1. That is why nursing homes were targeted for Covid.
    More dead voters to vote dem with mail in ballots.

    I’m getting impatient. When does the shooting start?

  2. Hey Old NFO;

    I am glad that President Trump fights, for the first time we actually have a president that fights back against the democrat media machine and refuses to get rolled by them, he refuses to let them control the narrative and it drives them nuts. And of course the democrats are pulling out all the stops on the voting, they HAVE to beat him in 2020 or they will have real problems in 2021.

  3. Barack Obama was the first “post-American president”. That’s painfully obvious, and the globalists rejoyced and outsourced American industry to China.

    President Trump, a patriot who clearly loves his country, reversed that and the globalists will never forgive him for the America First posture.

  4. Agree with Bob 100%
    Saw earlier this morning that somebody dug up a clip of Sleepy Joe advocating for revoking 230 protections a few years back (sorry I didn’t save the clip) … getting out the popcorn …

  5. January 17, 2020

    “The idea that it’s a tech company is that Section 230 should be revoked, immediately should be revoked, number one. For Zuckerberg and other platforms,” Biden said. “It should be revoked because it is not merely an internet company. It is propagating falsehoods they know to be false.”

    From the NY Times, that card carrying member of the vast right wing conspiracy

  6. They are just getting started. The lefts rage to unseat the Donald is building in intensity. They will stop at nothing in their jihad. The more Trump succeeds and looks more like winning in November, the higher and higher the intensity of their war against him. It is obvious to me that the flames of racial divides, being stoked by the media along with the C19 problems are being fanned by desperate leftists grasping at anything they can find to discredit Trump.

  7. Colorado has mail voting. The integrity rests with the county Clerk and Recorder. (Shudder)

    Hell has frozen over. The CO Springs newspaper, one with a decidedly conservative bias, has published an editorial praising our Governor, Emperor Polis, for his actions during the COVID-19 bullshit.

  8. All- Thanks for the comments. I didn’t know about some of the quotes!

    Posted from my iPhone.

  9. If we can stand 6 feet apart at the pot store, booze store or Walmart, we can stand 6 feet apart at the polling place.

    This fewmet/poop/shite/stuff/whatevs has to stop, or it will be stopped.

    Patently illegal. Immoral. And just wrong.


  10. Twitter, Facebook Amazon and Google all need to be broken up Just like ATT was way back when. No Company should have an Exemption from Liability for any reason. Especially when the so-called Algorithms flag Conservative speech and not liberal speech. Have you heard about kathy griffith being banned from twitter for threatening to assassinate President Trump.I have heard crickets

  11. For anyone that missed the reference, under “Section 230” a forum may enforce standards of speech. So ARFCOM, PF.com, etc, can ban a person for violating standards, but a free exchange of ideas is assumed. Which also assumes opposing opinions, freely expressed, as long as they don’t violate standards…

    But, as we all know, Twitter (and YouTube, and Facebook) are using their control of the site to appoint “fact checkers” who decide who can say what.
    And some of these “fact checkers” have been shown to hold decidedly partisan positions.

    The argument is that this removes Section 230 protections from the site.

  12. So “unfiltered lies” are unacceptable…does that mean that filtered lies are ok??

    I would rather see “just the facts” and make up my own mind.I went to public schools, they had their shot at indoctrinating me…what are they afraid of??

  13. It’s getting right “off-hook.” Of course they’re desperate, desperate for power.

    Who knows, maybe astroturf race riots will give it to them, but I doubt it.

  14. Drang- Yep… And don’t forget Google.

    Suz- They are afraid of us because we’re old and know how to think!

    LSP- Excellent point.

  15. I’ve been trying not to think very much about this campaigning cycle.

    So I’ve naively not been expecting the riots.

  16. Ron Wyden has been a loony for all of his “career”, this is one of the descriptors on wikipedia for his bio.

    **”In July 2009, President Barack Obama praised Wyden as a “real thought leader” and an ally on healthcare reform but announced he would not support Wyden’s health care plan, saying that parts of the plan were too radical for the United States.”**
