President Trump has called for the immediate termination of Big Tech’s Section 230 liability protections for reasons of “national security.”
President Trump posted to Twitter late Thursday evening his call for the “immediate” termination of Section 230 of the Communications and Decency Act, declaring that the liability protections of Big Tech companies like Facebook and Twitter should be stripped for “purposes of national security.”
Currently, Big Tech companies claim they act as a neutral platform, meaning that they receive certain protections from what people post on their site under Section 230, which gives them a “liability shield.” However, given that they have engaged in the censorship of conservatives, they act more like a publisher, who is more liable for what is on their site.

During the September 29 debate, Democratic Party presidential candidate Joe Biden responded to President Trump’s remarks about Antifa being a violent organization by telling him that Antifa is simply “an idea” and “not an organization.”
100 Percent Fed Up – Conservative Robby Starbuck immediately jumped into action, creating a video to show Joe Biden and his handful of supporters that Antifa is hardly an “idea,” but instead, a well-organized, violent domestic terror group.
#WalkAway founder Brandon Straka, one of America’s bravest patriots, shared a screenshot this morning from “Antifa [idea] leader” Adam Rahuba, of Pittsburgh, PA, warning President Trump and his supporters that if he doesn’t concede and turn the keys over to the far-left, radical regime of puppet Joe Biden, there will be blood in the streets of the suburbs in America.

Twitter announced over the weekend that it intends to make Joe Biden ‘@POTUS’ next year regardless of the actual outcome of the election.
The platform announced that it is “actively preparing to support the transition of White House institutional Twitter accounts on January 20th, 2021.”
The accounts Twitter says it will hand over to Biden also include @whitehouse, @VP, @FLOTUS, as well as several other handles that related to official government positions.
Twitter also announced that its representatives will be meeting with members of Biden’s ‘transition team’ in the coming weeks to discuss the hand over.
Richard Baris, known online for his popular “People’s Pundit” Twitter account, is one of the most respected pollsters in the United States.
On Wednesday, he was suspended from the platform seemingly over some numbers that he crunched that were inconvenient for the Democrat election narrative.
His business, Big Data Poll, and his wife Laura Baris, were also suspended.

A video posted to Twitter shows a woman attempting to send a URL about alleged vote fraud to an iPhone but the message going undelivered, prompting claims that phone networks are now censoring links.
“BREAKING: Messages about election fraud are being censored via text message,” claims the woman. “Here is 100% proof! GEyesgle Green apple or Verizon or all are the culprit. More testing is needed to figure out which company(s) is censoring text messages about the fraud! We have hit peak level censorship!”
The clip shows her sending normal text messages from an Android phone to an iPhone, but when she attempts to send a link about alleged vote fraud from thedonald.win website, the message is not delivered to the iPhone, despite the Android phone saying it had been delivered.
The Twitter account for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement was removed then placed back on the social media platform Thursday after a “technical glitch” was resolved.
At some point Thursday, the @ICEgov account appeared to have disappeared from Twitter. The disappearance of the account for the federal agency, which has been the subject of polarizing political debates, got lots of response Thursday afternoon. Matt Ford, a reporter with The New Republic, tweeted that the account had disappeared about 12:18 p.m.
Immigration enforcement is the primary purpose of ICE, and the agency enforces “400 federal statutes and focuses on smart immigration enforcement, preventing terrorism and combating the illegal movement of people and goods,” according to the website. Some critics have disputed the efforts to enforce immigration laws as an affront to human rights for the thousands who are being detained at the more than 130 facilities across the U.S.
Social media platform Parler jumped to the top downloaded app this weekend, as conservatives rally support to leave Facebook and Twitter over censorship.
“The media and the anti-Trump lunatics have awakened a sleeping giant. We gave a collective middle finger to the tech tyrants as Parler remains the NUMBER ONE most downloaded app in the world. Thank you!” conservative commentator Dan Bongino said Sunday morning.
Parler is in the top spot for most popular free apps on Apple as of Sunday morning, beating out TikTok and YouTube.
Parler was founded in 2018 and has been lauded as a platform that protects free speech.
Social media is clamping down on posts questioning US election results’ “integrity,” despite troubling anomalies. Yet questioning election integrity defined the establishment narrative for four years of relentless Russiagating.
Twitter, Facebook and YouTube’s crackdown on speculation about voter fraud, “election meddling,” and other “information intended to undermine public confidence in an election or other civic process” (as Twitter put it) represents a stunning about-face from the way they fostered – even bolstered – speculation about alleged Russian interference in the 2016 vote.
In what is perhaps the ultimate irony, the current level of election meddling by the social media establishment – which outstrips anything the troll farm Internet Research Agency pulled off in 2016 by several orders of magnitude – would be impossible without the hysteria ginned up on these platforms by journalists casting doubt over the integrity of that year’s election. If not for four years of Russiagate, social media platforms would never have gotten away with choking off the flow of information about 2020’s election on the level they are.

As the country still reels from an uncertain vote count on election night, Twitter is working overtime to halt the spread of dangerous misinformation. This morning, Trump tweeted out “GOOD MORNING, AMERICA!!!” which was quickly blocked by Twitter’s election safety team for misinformation.
“It is NOT a good morning,” said Xander Vabalooka, head of Twitter’s emergency election misinformation squad. “Our democracy hangs in the balance! There is nothing ‘good’ about this morning until all the votes are counted and we get the correct results. We have therefore decided to label this tweet as misinformation.”
Biden later responded by tweeting: “Howdy folks! I won!” The tweet currently has 456K likes.
Social media giant Twitter said Monday it will put warning labels on tweets from U.S. election candidates that claim victory ahead of official results.
In a blog post Monday, the company said an election win must be “authoritatively called” before tweets without warning labels will be allowed by candidates or campaigns.
To determine election results, Twitter said it would require an announcement from state election officials or a “public projection from at least two authoritative national news outlets that make independent election calls,” citing examples that included ABC News, The Associated Press, CNN and Fox News.
Tuesday’s U.S. election has a record number of early votes, which election officials say could slow down the vote count in some states. Because of this, it is possible that a winner in the presidential race, along with some state and local races, will not be known on election night.
