State Ags Are Joining with the DOJ in Combined Efforts to Go After Big Tech’s Censorship and Political Bias

Featured Story

The Un-Godly — Those That Suppress the Truth, the social media giants built multi-billion dollar empires by giving everyone a voice, but now that they have such a dominant position on the Internet they have decided that many prominent conservative voices should be completely silenced.

They want to control what ideas people are exposed to, thus shaping the overall direction of the country as a whole.

Social media giants like Facebook don’t have much regard for individual entities. They are engineering reality for many people by suppressing stories, thoughts and ideas they don’t like while promoting things they do like. That would be fine if everyone thought alike, but we do not. 

The First Amendment exists for a reason. It exists to protect speech that is unpopular, even offensive. But when anti-Christian speech is given a pass on social media and Bible readings are banned, there exists a serious problem. We have no idea what the engineers at these firms are doing with our news and information. But at which point they take it upon themselves to decide what we want to see, they are censoring. And censorship is never part of a healthy society.

It appears that President Trump is getting ready to bring down the hammer on the big social media companies.  According to Politico, the Trump administration is in the process of drafting an executive order that will “tackle Silicon Valley’s alleged anti-conservative bias”.  And it is very much in President Trump’s own self-interest to do this.  Social media played a key role in helping him win in 2016, but since that time we have seen an unprecedented wave of censorship on the major social media platforms, and most of that censorship has been directed at conservative voices.  If President Trump doesn’t do something, it is hard to see how he will win in 2020, and of course, that is precisely what the leftist executives at the big social media companies want.

Ultimately, it would take an act of Congress to do everything that needs to be done, but President Trump should be applauded for trying to do what he can on his own.  Apparently, Politico was able to speak to three separate sources that are familiar with the drafting of this new executive order, and after speaking to all of them Politico came to the conclusion that the Trump administration is very serious about “wielding the federal government’s power against Silicon Valley”

UpdateThe Hill reports that National Republican groups announced Thursday that they would halt spending money to advertise on Twitter after the social media site blocked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) campaign account this week.

State AGs are joining with the DOJ in combined efforts to go after Big Tech’s censorship and political bias by Ethan Huff for Natural News

At least 20 states are teaming up to take on Big Tech, according to new reports, as attorneys general all across the country initiate the early stages of a joint antitrust investigation into the monopolistic practices of tech giants like Google, Apple, Facebook, and Amazon, also known as the “Big Four.”

With a formal launch set for sometime in September, the collaborative effort, which has already begun, will involve states issuing what is known as civil investigative demands, similar to subpoenas, to tech companies with a questionable track record of shady business practices – which is pretty much all of them, at this point.

Potentially dovetailing with investigations by both the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) that were recently announced at the federal level, this new probe by the states will aim to get to the bottom of how tech corporations are illicitly stifling their competition while engaging in anti-free speech censorship schemes.

The hope is to have this investigation be a bipartisan effort, with authority figures from both sides of the aisle working together on behalf of all Americans to achieve fairness and preserve the First Amendment in the online environment, which is where tens of millions of Americans now get their news.

Another goal of the probe is to uncover the degree to which tech giants are violating the privacy rights of their users. Facebook, as many of our readers well know, has largely taken the spotlight in this regard, with recent reports indicating that the Mark Zuckerberg empire is now secretly recording users’ conversations and transcribing them without their permission or knowledge.

“The attorneys general involved have concerns over the control of personal data by large tech companies and will hold them accountable for anticompetitive practices that endanger privacy and consumer data,” announced a spokesman for New York Attorney General Letitia James, a Democrat helping to lead the probe from the Empire State.

North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein, also a Democrat, announced that he will be “participating in bipartisan conversations about this issue,” while Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood, yet another Democrat, has indicated that he’s “concerned with the aggregation of data in the hands of a few,” and thus wants to be “always watchful of any monopoly.”

The feds may join the states to ensure that Big Tech is finally held accountable for breaking the law

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican, is also onboard with the effort, having issued a statement last month indicating that he’s already spoken with some of the other attorneys general about “the real concerns consumers across the country have with big tech companies stifling competition on the internet.”

If successful, this joint probe could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back for the tech cabal, which for far too long has gotten away with pretty much anything and everything. And should the feds join in on the endeavor, which some say is a possibility, real change could finally be on the horizon.

Having the states rise up in cooperation with one another is perhaps Big Tech’s worst nightmare, as these multinational corporations will be forced to try to stave off a multi-pronged attack, at much cost to themselves.

As you may recall, a joint state-federal antitrust effort is how Microsoft was held to account in a landmark antitrust case several decades back, leading to a ruling that required the Bill Gates brainchild to make its Windows platform more accessible to third-party software developers.

Mainstream Media Won’t Tell You the TRUTH!

At the same time, the states involved in the Microsoft suite were divided over whether or not to accept this settlement, which some experts say both expanded and extended that legal battle when it could have potentially been decided upon much sooner.

The DOJ and FTC have already reportedly reached “detailed arrangements,” to quote The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) about how they’re planning to go after not just Google and Facebook, but also Amazon and Apple. In the end, these “Big Four” corporations could face scrutiny from more than one antitrust agency.

Hilariously, all four of these companies, responding to these announcements about intensified antitrust scrutiny, have publicly claimed that they operate fairly and honestly.

Adam Cohen, Google’s director of economic policy, claims that his company has “helped reduce prices and expand choice for consumers and merchants in the U.S. and around the world.”

Matt Perault, Facebook’s director of public policy, heaped similar laud on his company by claiming that the social media giant “faces intense competition for all of the products and services that we provide.”

Representatives from both Apple and Amazon issued similar statements during a recent hearing, claiming that their respective companies foster a healthy competitive environment against their most noteworthy rivals.

Silver & Gold

But we know that this is hardly the case, and so do regulators, lawmakers, and legal experts who have indicated that everything from advertising and search to social media and app sales have become entirely uncompetitive, hence the need for a heightened probe to hold the tech cabal accountable for stifling both competition and free speech.

John Wesley who said that what we tolerate in our generation, will be embraced by the next. Wesley is 100% correct! We are living in sick times.

Usually, the Lord doth no great thing for or against his people, without giving warning of it before it comes.

When one knows the truth and refuses to obey it, he is subject to any lie, any deception, any untruth that man can conjure up. “For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him nor gave thanks to Him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1:21-22). Paul goes on in the next few verses to describe the mindset and behaviors of those who disbelieve (see Romans 1:29-31). As a result of man’s foolishness and his arrogant disdain of the things of God, “God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done” (Romans 1:28). And correspondingly, “Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them” (Romans 1:32).

Historically, Christianity has flourished under totalitarian regimes. The book of Acts recounts the persecution of the Christians under Roman rule—including Nero’s reign—and the resulting spread of the gospel. After the stoning of Stephen, believers were forced to flee from those who wanted to put them to death. “On that day a great persecution broke out against the church in Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria” (Acts 8:1). It appears from Acts 9:31 that this persecution backfired and actually worked toward the further spread of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The people spreading concrete information on the dangers of globalism are accomplishing far more than those sitting around buying bitcoin or passing around Q-cult nonsense.

Let Me Make This Abundantly Clear. (I Am Apolitical) While I Have a General Distaste for Politicians No Matter the Party They Belong To, I Am Unashamedly Politically a Bible Believing Conservative Christian. I Have a Severe Distrust of Government. I Believe It Is the Most Inefficient and Ineffective Way to Accomplish Most Things. While I Strongly Disagree with Liberals/Progressives and Conservative on Most Political Issues, and While I Believe Liberals/Progressives and Most Politicians Are Terribly Misguided and Naive About What Big Government Will Eventually Result In, I Strive to Not Question Their Motives. at the Same Time, While I Find Myself in Agreement with Conservative Politicians on Some Issues, I Do Not Believe Electing Republicans Is the Answer to Everything. for Me, Very Sadly, the Main Difference Between Republicans and Democrats Is How Quickly They Want to Drive the Car Towards the Cliff. Simply put, I do not believe the government is the solution for everything. I do not place any faith, trust, or hope in any politicians to fix what is wrong with the world. “Come Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20)

Evil Exists So Spiritual Warfare Becomes Necessary!

2. Corinthians 4:8-11 New King James Version (NKJV)
8. We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9. persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10. always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11. For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
