White House Launches Website To Fight Social Media ‘Bias’ And ‘Censorship’

On Wednesday, the White House launched a new online tool for Americans to report political censorship on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter directly to President Trump.

The administration announced the tool on Twitter on Wednesday, tweeting it is “fighting for free speech.”

“No matter your views, if you suspect political bias has caused you to be censored or silenced online, we want to hear about it!”

The website asks visitors to respond to a series of questions, including which social media platform they believe censored them because of political bias.

“The White House wants to hear from all Americans – regardless of their political leanings – if they have been impacted by bias on social media platforms,” Deputy Press Secretary Judd Deere said of the effort.

Trump and other Republicans have brought up concerns about censorship by social media platforms.  Yes, they are private companies that normally don’t have to comply with First Amendment protections, but the government gets involved in other civil rights situations like a business cannot discriminate against customers based on who they are.  Giant tech companies are discriminating against an entire group of Americans because they are conservative.

In early May, Facebook announced it had banned a number of conspiracy theorists and political extremists from the platform, prompting a response from Trump on Twitter.

“I am continuing to monitor the censorship of AMERICAN CITIZENS on social media platforms,” Trump tweeted after the bans.

“This is the United States of America — and we have what’s known as FREEDOM OF SPEECH! We are monitoring and watching, closely!!” he added.

Not everyone believes in fighting for free speech.

“I think it raises questions related to the abuse of power,” Senator Brian Schatz (D-HI) told reporters on Capitol Hill. “If it’s not authoritarian, it’s the first or second cousin of authoritarianism.”

For Democrats and other leftists, so long as the bias and censorship isn’t happening against them, then no problem.  However, we all know that if the shoe were on the other foot, Democrats would be calling for all kinds of government intervention, including breaking the companies up, declaring them as publishers and not platforms, and they would come up with rules on how to run their businesses.

Trump isn’t interfering with the giant tech social media companies.  He’s merely gathering information from Americans who believe they have been silenced.  There have been hearings based on high tech company bias, and they aren’t listening.

I myself tweeted something yesterday only to have Twitter remove my tweet.  In the tweet, I asked Reese Witherspoon how the Alabama abortion law was unconstitutional, and I pointed out that the 10th Amendment allows states to do it.  I was very respectful, because I’ve always liked the actress for not being a Hollywood leftist kook, and the tweet didn’t violate any Twitter rules.  My tweet was there.  I viewed it.  And then it was gone forever.

Republican lawmakers cheered the move. “I think it is positive to be combating bias and censorship from big tech,” Texas Sen. Ted Cruz told POLITICO on Thursday, a month after convening a hearing on alleged discrimination against conservatives online.

Government has civil rights laws that include a ban on discrimination by businesses based on who you are.  This is no different.  Giant tech companies are violating free speech civil rights of people because their politics aren’t left of Stalin.  It’s being done and it’s very transparent.

42% of All Federal Crimes Committed By Illegal Aliens Which are Made up of 7% of the Population

Illegal Aliens make up just 7% of the population but a federal commission report finds that they commit 42% of all federal crimes. That is way way beyond their portion of the population in this country. Hispanics dominate the statistics, committing 54.3% of all federal crimes. Whites commit 21.2% and Blacks commit 20.6%. So much for the very good people just looking for a better life myth. Many do fit that category, but a large number are just criminals. The report came from the  2018 Annual Report and Sourcebook of Federal Sentencing Statistics. These numbers are astonishing and underline the need to vet those who want to come into our country. Imagine how low our federal crime rate would be if not for illegal aliens.

From The Conservative Tribune

“In fiscal year 2018, 54.3 percent of all offenders were Hispanic, 21.2 percent were White, 20.6 percent were Black, and 3.8 percent were of another race. Non-U.S. Citizens accounted for 42.7 percent of all federal offenders,” the government report said.

“Immigration cases accounted for the largest single group of offenses in fiscal year 2018, comprising 34.4 percent of all reported cases,” the government document continued.

Of course, a skeptic might point out that this by itself isn’t so surprising. Illegal immigration is a federal crime and widespread, so it makes sense that aliens — many of them Hispanic — receive a high number of federal sentences.

But the numbers show deeply disturbing trends.

It isn’t just that aliens are being prosecuted for immigration crimes. Actually, they are also committing many other crimes at an alarming rate.

“Cases involving drug possession, for example, were nearly evenly split between citizens and non-citizens with 361 and 339, respectively,” The American Mirror noted. But remember, non-citizens are only about 7 percent of the population.

MS-13 Punks, Not Deported By Obama and Released By Sanctuary City Charged With Brutal Murder

Josue Rafael Fuentes-Ponce, 16-years-old, and Joel Ernesto Escobar, 17-years-old, were charged with first-degree murder — along with 14-year-old Cynthia Hernandez-Nucamendi in the brutal murder of 14-year-old Ariana Funes-Diaz in Prince George’s County, Maryland. Both Fuentes-Ponce and Escobar came to the country illegally, but instead of deporting them, they were released into the country.

In 2018, the two were released back onto the streets after being charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, participation in gang activity, conspiracy to commit murder, and attempted robbery in Prince George’s County, which refused to honor detainers on the pair. More blood on the hands of sanctuary liberals. But Democrats are not concerned with having blood on their hands, whether it be a baby that’s aborted or an American being butchered by MS-13.

From Breitbart News

According to police, the two illegal alien MS-13 gang members and Hernandez-Nucamendi met the 14-year-old victim at an apartment complex before taking her into a wooded area nearby. In the wooded area, police say the three beat the girl with a baseball bat and stabbed her to death with a machete.

Now, the pair of illegal alien MS-13 gang members and Hernandez-Nucamendi have been charged with murdering Funes-Diaz.

Last year, Fuentes-Ponce and Escobar were released from custody by Prince George’s County officials after being charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, participation in gang activity, conspiracy to commit murder, and attempted robbery.

At the time, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency had requested that the two illegal alien gang members not be released back into the community and instead be turned over to their custody for deportation.

Prince George’s County, a sanctuary city, released the illegal aliens anyway, and they were never able to be arrested or deported by ICE.

Judge Orders Antifa Leader to Pay Judicial Watch $22,000

Yvette Felarca, the schoolteacher antifa hoodlum that was charged with assault back in 2016 as the result of a physical attack on a counter protester, has just been slapped with a charge of $22,000 to pay the legal fees of Judicial Watch after she filed a frivolous lawsuit against them. Felarca is also affiliated with By Any Means Necessary. (BAMN) Judicial Watch has asked for all communications the school had, along with Felarca’s personnel file. Felarca sued to prevent the transfer and the judge said her case held no water since she was saying that she had 1st Amendment rights but that Judicial Watch didn’t.

 

Judicial Watch reported:

Judicial Watch announced that a U.S. District Judge in California awarded Judicial Watch $22,000 in legal fees in a case filed by an Antifa organizer in an effort to block Judicial Watch from obtaining information about her activities.

Yvette Felarca, a middle school teacher in the Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD), and two co-plaintiffs were ordered to pay Judicial Watch $22,000 in attorney’s fees and $4,000 in litigation costs. Felarca had sued the BUSD in federal court to keep the school district from fulfilling its legal obligation to provide Judicial Watch with records of their communications mentioning: Felarca, Antifa, and/or BAMN. Judicial Watch also asked for Felarca’s personnel file.

Felarca is a prominent figure in By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), a group founded by the Marxist Revolutionary Workers League that protests conservative speaking engagements. In 2016, Felarca and two of her allies were arrested and charged with several crimes, including felony assault, for inciting a riot in Sacramento. Earlier this year, Felarca was ordered to stand trial for assault.

U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria, Northern District of California, who had previously ruled that Felarca’s lawsuit was “entirely frivolous,” wrote in his ruling awarding legal fees to Judicial Watch that Felarca and her co-plaintiffs’ First Amendment claims were “premised on the obviously baseless assumption” that the First Amendment condemns the speech of some while condoning the ideological missions of others.

Judge Chhabria added that “The plaintiffs also mischaracterized the documents under review” and that the plaintiffs “failed to grapple with the role Ms. Felarca played in making herself a topic of public discourse through her physical conduct at public rallies and her voluntary appearance on Fox News.”
