President Trump's lawsuit is asking the U.S. District Court to order an immediate halt to social media companies’ illegal censorship of the American people,” and demanding an end to shadow banning, silencing, blacklisting, and banishing.
In the past year, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook have permanently banned Trump. Trump supporters and conservative news outlets alike, have also experienced routine censorship for airing Trump rallies and freely expressing support for the 45th president.
Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz reacted to President Trump announcing a class action lawsuit against Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey (left) and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (right).
“What’s going on with high tech is unacceptable. I wrote a book about this exact subject, ‘The Case Against the New Censorship: Protecting Free Speech from Big Tech,’ so I’m deeply involved in this issue, and I was also asked to be an expert witness. And I did submit an affidavit for this lawsuit, so I’m not simply an observer.”
“This is a complicated case because these are not just ordinary private companies. They have special exemption under Section 230, and therefore they partake of some kind of government action, and the courts will have to parse this issue. How much of what they do is private? How much of what they do partakes of being public? I think this lawsuit will shake things up considerably." (MORE)
The lawsuit will be filed in Florida by the America First Policy Institute, a non-profit focused on aiding Trump’s legal efforts, to protect freedom of speech for every American.
“President Trump often remarked that if Big Tech is out to get him, it’s because they’re out to get the American people — and he was just standing in the way,” said Brooke Rollins, president and CEO of AFPI. ALL Americans need Donald Trump to win — not for what it will mean for him, but for what it will mean for every American man, woman, and child.”
The Supreme Court’s response to the arguments made in attacking Arizona’s voting-integrity provisions expose the folly of the Biden administration’s lawsuit against Georgia.

States can now be confident they will be able to pass sensible election laws to prevent voter fraud without undue judicial interference.
The case the Supreme Court decided involved two of Arizona’s voting-related restrictions that opponents claimed violated Section 2. (Section 2 of the federal Voting Rights Act of 1965 bars any law that discriminates in voting based on race).
On July 1st, in a 6-3 vote, the Supreme Court majority interpreted the Section 2 “effects” clause to apply only when the challenged restriction imposes a substantial burden with a significantly disparate impact on members of different racial groups.
One of the restrictions required the invalidation of ballots cast in person in the wrong precinct.
The other restriction prohibited vote harvesting, where third parties such as campaign workers, community activists, etc. go around and collect ballots from multiple voters in different households and deliver them to official polling stations or election offices.
“Mere inconvenience cannot be enough,” Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. wrote for the majority, describing common sense “guideposts” for dealing with Section 2 challenges. The decision treats blacks and other people of color as adults who are capable of taking advantage of the same multiple ways to vote that are available to everyone else.
Now we need more volunteers out there helping us.

Because he paid attention to the details and didn’t accept at face value the claims even colleagues surely fed him and his staff. What a concept: Checking the fine print before you sign on the dotted line.
“SB 146 presents a test for Governor DeSantis. Signing this bill would authorize and fund precisely the politicized and radical activism he has pledged to remove from Florida’s education system. I don’t doubt that few of Florida’s legislators realized this when they voted for SB 146,” wrote Stanley Kurtz last month as the bill hit DeSantis’s desk.
Kurtz detailed how the bill would fund political activism in the name of “civics education,” as do the majority of initiatives with such labels currently, including bipartisan federal legislation. In the deceitful names of “civic engagement” and “civic literacy,” the Florida bill would have essentially sent state funds to two outfits that coordinate youth political activism and openly endorse far-left causes, including the new racism.
The DeSantis veto of S.B. 146 shows that the push-back against protest civics has truly gained traction. It can’t have been easy to veto a bill that passed unanimously. But knowledge of the troublesome practice of protest civics is spreading, and surely this helped to sink the bill.
Grassroots education groups in Florida called on DeSantis to veto S.B. 146, and even a short time ago conservatives wouldn’t have known enough about protest civics to even notice a bill like this. With the grassroots rebellion sweeping the country on education issues, all of that has changed.
This veto is every bit as much a tribute to the parents across Florida now fighting against politicized schools as it is to Governor DeSantis.
As we learned from the Common Core fight a decade ago, and Goals 2000 and so forth before that, the time for autopilot education and autopilot education governance is long over for those who love America as it was founded and want it long to endure. The barbarians are not only inside the gates, they control the commanding heights.
DeSantis says: Not in Florida.

President Trump and Governor Abbott hold a roundtable briefing.

"We're doing all that we can for one reason, and that's because the way that the people on the border are having their lives turned upside down," Abbott said.
“I cannot tell you the number of stories that I’ve heard from people who have had guns put to their heads or guns brandished at them in their ranches, in their homes, in their neighborhoods. They’re afraid to have their children go play in their yards. The ranchers have their homes invaded, their fences ripped up, their livestock lost, their game lost. It is a far more dangerous situation than it’s ever been.”

"I mean the real question is do they really want opens borders or are they just incompetent? Because you're either incompetent or for some reason you have a screw loose and want to have open borders."
Then he roasted vegetable Biden, saying he cannot pass a cognitive test. “I’d like to see Biden ace it — he won’t,” Trump said to his White House doctor-turned Congressman Ronny Jackson.
Yesterday, we heard from a whistleblower within the U.S. government, who reached out to warn us that the NSA, the National Security Agency, is monitoring our electronic communications, and is planning to leak them, in an attempt take this show off the air.
Now, that's a shocking claim, and ordinarily we'd be skeptical of it. It's illegal for the NSA to spy on American citizens. It's a crime. This isn't a third-world country. Things like that shouldn't happen here. But, unfortunately, they do -- and in this case, they did.
The whistleblower, who is in a position to know, repeated back to us information about a story we're working on that could only have come directly from my texts and emails. There's no other possible source for that information, period. The NSA captured it without our knowledge for political reasons. The Biden administration is spying on us. We've confirmed that.
“For decades…, the greatest domestic terror threat has come from radical environmental groups, look it up,” Tuicker said. “White supremacists meanwhile are at the bottom of that list. Federal statistics prove it. Americans are much more likely to die of a lightning strike than at the hands of a white supremacist.”
“White supremacy may be ugly, but it is not a meaningful threat to the nation and claiming otherwise is a lie,” he continued. “So why does the Biden administration persist in telling that lie? It’s a racial attack, obviously, you tell black voters that Republicans are in the KKK and they will keep voting for you. And that’s the idea. Easier than fixing Chicago or raising test scores, which they should be doing.”
“But there’s also a deeper significance, for the Biden administration is signaling a very real change to actual policy,” he continued. “The war on terror now ongoing for 20 years has pivoted, it is now being waged against American citizens, opponents of the regime.”
“We saw this on display at January 6 and told you a couple of weeks ago, based on the language of publicly available indictments, that the FBI has prior knowledge of the riots of the capitol that day and the agents we spoke to confirm that is true.”
Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz reacted to the State of New York suspending Rudy Giuliani's law license over his claims of fraud in the 2020 election:
"I taught legal ethics for, I don't know, 35 years at Harvard Law school. I think of myself as a leading expert on legal ethics. I've never ever seen a case where a lawyer was essentially disbarred . . .without a hearing. I mean, the most basic concept of due process is you don't deprive somebody of his living, of his freedom, of his ability to work without a hearing."

"And then the criteria under which they suspended his law license is so vague. It says in the course of representing a client, a lawyer shall not knowingly make a false statement of fact or law to a third person. In other words, if he goes on your show, or he goes on my podcast, or he goes on Fox or anywhere else, and he makes a statement which turns out to be false, and he had reason to believe it was false, he could be disbarred. Do you know how many lawyers we'd have left if we applied that standard across the board?"
Host John Catsimatidis asked if the words "equal justice for all" are dead:
"I think they are mortally wounded. I don't think we're seeing equal justice for all. I think we're seeing selective justice. . .
When a prosecutor runs for office, like the attorney general of New York ran for office on the promise that she will get Donald Trump, is that equal justice? Or is that show me the man, and I'll find you the crime?
You know, that's what happens in banana republics. That's what happens in tyrannical regimes."
