Silicon Valley Elites & Big Tech Censors ... will now be held accountable

. Rubio is a NO on the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA)

“Greater Collusion” with Big Tech companies from Silicon Valley.

“The issue is the monopoly. They are now the gatekeeper for the new public square. It is a concentrated amount of power in the hands of five or six big companies. There are five companies in America—if they decide to get together—if Apple, Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Twitter all decide to get together, they can shut you down.

They can shut anyone down. They can shut down the President of the United States. They can shut down anybody. That’s a lot of power concentrated in the hands of unelected, unaccountable individuals to completely cut somebody off from the public square and wipe you out."

Sen. Rubio’s opposition comes as several other Republicans have joined the cause lining up against the bill. In the House, GOP leader Kevin McCarthy and House Judiciary Committee ranking member Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) have announced public opposition to the plan. In the Senate, Rubio joins Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), who announced her opposition to the proposal earlier in May.

It also comes as the bill’s chief GOP proponent, Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO), faces serious criticism inside the Republican Party amid the push for the legislation. Buck, as Breitbart News reported earlier in May, took thousands of dollars in donations from lobbyists and special interests pushing the bill, including PACs for companies that stand to benefit from it. A subsequent Politico investigation found even more donations to Buck from special interests, totaling more than $50,000.

Ron DeSantis Lands Massive Blow Against Big Tech Oligarchs

The bill, the first of its kind in the nation, was passed by Florida's House 77-38 and the state's Senate 23-17 (viaFLgov.com).

All Floridians treated unfairly by Big Tech platforms will have the right to sue companies that violate this law — and win monetary damages. This reform safeguards the rights of every Floridian by requiring social media companies to be transparent about their content moderation practices and give users proper notice of changes to those policies, which prevents Big Tech bureaucrats from "moving the goalposts" to silence viewpoints they don’t like.

The Attorney General of Florida can bring action against technology companies that violate this law, under Florida’s Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act. If social media platforms are found to have violated antitrust law, they will be restricted from contracting with any public entity. That "antitrust violator" blacklist imposes real consequences for Big Tech oligopolies’ bottom line.

Big Tech is prohibited from de-platforming Floridian political candidates. The Florida Election Commission will impose fines of $250,000 per day on any social media company that de-platforms any candidate for statewide office, and $25,000 per day for de-platforming candidates for non-statewide offices. Any Floridian can block any candidate they don’t want to hear from, and that is a right that belongs to each citizen — it’s not for Big Tech companies to decide.

Bad News for America-Haters

 - The 1776 Commission met in D.C. on Monday May 24th

The statement praises federalism and the primary role of parents in protecting their children from being "taught false narratives or fed hateful lies about our country." Like-minded people should run for school boards, and states and localities should reform their curricula to "teach our true history."

The federal government is seeking to circumvent the Constitution's reservation to the states of unenumerated federal powers (like a power to nationalize educational standards) by incentivizing school districts to adopt its "one-size-fits-all" proposal, which like the Common Core standards is a "blueprint for trivializing and mechanizing learning," the commission said.

The panel submitted a shorter version of its statement for the federal rulemaking, which drew nearly 24,000 comments.

The commission is led by Larry Arnn, president of non-taxpayer-funded Hillsdale College, and Carol Swain, a retired law professor at Vanderbilt University. It also includes Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk, U.S. Commission on Civil Rights member Peter Kirsanow, historian Victor Davis Hanson and former Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant.

One of the first actions by Joe Biden was to scrap the “1776 Commission,” which was an initiative by President Trump to restore respect for American history. But Donald Trump is not abandoning the fight for America’s freedom and founding principles.

The President’s Advisory 1776 Commission Mission Statement"To enable a rising generation to understand the history and principles of the founding of the United States in 1776 and to strive to form a more perfect Union. This requires a restoration of American education, which can only be grounded on a history of those principles that is accurate, honest, unifying, inspiring, and ennobling".

Apparently, this was too controversial a mission for the progressives who hate America’s founding, the freedom of Americans to live their own lives, and the Constitutionally limited government that restrains them from carrying out their authoritarian agenda. 

Now, Donald Trump is bringing the commission back

“Members of the 1776 Commission, which Joe Biden disbanded on his first day in White House, are reportedly set to meet again with a renewed focus on combating the teaching of U.S. history based on the Marxist critical race theory,” the Epoch Times reported.

In an interview with Washington ExaminerMatthew Spalding, the 1776 Commission's executive director, said that members of the 1776 Commission will convene next week in Washington on the campus of Hillsdale College. One of their topics will be critical race theory, which sees racism in all aspects of American life.

“When we start going about dividing people by groups, by social identities, and especially by identities that deal with race, and we’re starting to make those kinds of divisions .. it’s a departure away from the historic grounding of civil rights in America, which is that we all are equal.”

'Volusia GOP groups splinter'

By Mark Harper (excerpt)

 Nationally, Republicans are warring not just with Democrats, but themselves.

For a local example, look no further than the homepage of the Volusia County Republican Executive Committee website, showing photos of the 35 GOP House members who voted with Democrats to create a commission examining the events of Jan. 6. The pictures are beneath a headline that starts: “Throw them out.”

SEE: Throw Them Out -- 35 House Republicans who voted to support Nancy Pelosi

Divisions have formed within the Volusia GOP itself. The executive committee is severing ties with three of its clubs, including the Republican Club of Daytona, which has been chartered for 66 years. The other two clubs on the outside are the Republican Club of Ormond Beach Area and the Republican Club of West Volusia. So where Republicans had eight active clubs last November, today they only show four.

All clubs must go through a re-certification process every two years. As part of that process, the clubs must obtain the signatures of the Volusia Republican Executive Committee, comprised of Deering, Committeeman Vic Baker and Committeewoman Debbie Phillips. The clubs must agree to follow all federal and state laws as well as the rules of the Republican Party of Florida and the Volusia County REC.

Deering said problems during last year's election — specifically, clubs and club members endorsing some Republicans over others during the primary — led him to ask the clubs to abide by a set of additional regulations. The Daytona, Ormond and West Volusia clubs refused. None of the club presidents returned calls Friday seeking comment.

Deering said he offered to speak directly to each of the clubs about the necessity of the added regulations. “In this case, only one of the clubs allowed me to speak for three minutes to balance the 35 minutes of their presentation,” he said. “They had a predisposition to go that way. We wish them well. They believe the grass is greener, and that's perfectly OK.”

Deering said none of the national political turmoil within the GOP — differences of opinion on whether or not to support a Jan. 6 commission, Rep. Liz Cheney's leadership position and the belief that former President Donald Trump was cheated out of a second term — were factors in the split between the REC and the local clubs. “Most of us believe the election was stolen, and that will come out in time.”

“We are being governed by people at war with our Constitution”

 

DeSantis advises Republicans: “The way to win is to fight back and not take it anymore.”

DeSantis advises Republicans facing media attacks \

“As we look forward to the fights ahead, we cannot, indeed we will not go back to the days of the failed Republican establishment of yesteryear. We are not going to do that.”

The Governor of Florida offered advice to Republicans under attack from the mainstream media and Democrats:

“Don’t seek approval from these people. They don’t like you. They will smear you. They will attack you. The way to win is to fight back and not take it anymore. Don’t let these people set the agenda for our party anymore. Don’t back down”

Regime vs. Regime

"We who swear to uphold the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic owe no allegiance whatever to the oligarchy that now runs this country."

By Angelo Codevilla

The attempt of America’s ruling class to convict 455 persons of “armed insurrection”—i.e. of waging war against the United States, a species of treason—for protesting insufficient scrutiny of the 2020 election on January 6 in the Capitol, while at the same time it excuses and even cheers the burning and looting of courthouses, police stations, and downtowns all over America, is not the exercise of a “double standard". The people in and out of government who do this are not corrupt.

Instead, acting as part of the regime—the oligarchy—they are replacing the American republic and waging war to crush its remains. The sooner Americans realize that we are being governed by people at war with our Constitution and contemptuous of ourselves, the sooner those people may be treated as the enemies they are.

Today’s Justice Department, acting as part and parcel of the oligarchy that calls itself “our democracy” has pushed partisanship to the point of war by one regime in favor of another. Inevitably, this has created the horrid reality of political prisoners among us—people who are being punished for supporting the republic against the oligarchy.

When regimes war on each other, whose side you are on becomes the practical definition of justice. Having been at the Capitol on January 6, or merely in Washington, D.C., has been enough to earn a SWAT team’s intrusion and trashing of one’s home. Other departments of government including the armed forces, plus any number of corporations, examine social media posts for heterodox views.

Though punishment does not always result, spreading fear always does. Which is the main point.
