We Can Fix Big Tech, 3160
Good afternoon, I’m still reporting on the coup.
The battle between Congress and the Mega-billionaire boys club who run the enormously profitable internet companies, Google, Amazon, Facebook and Apple who appeared before Congress on Wednesday, is supposed to be too complex for us mere mortals to understand.
But at the core it’s actually simple, something the billionaire boys and Congress don’t want the people to know.
You can’t sue Facebook, Google or the others if someone posts something false, derogatory and downright mean spirited about you on one of their sites. If however, The New York Times or any other news organization ran the exact same words in its print edition or posted it on-line you could sue them and many people have.
The reason is simple, when the huge tech companies were little tech companies getting started they argued that they did not control the content on their sites so they could not be held accountable for that content and Congress agreed. It saved them a bundle in costs because unlike other media, they didn’t have to worry about the validity of what was being posted. They didn’t have to hire people to read the content, lawyers to decide if it was actionable or have the expense of going to court to defend their decisions.
Attorney General Bill Barr compared it to a bulletin board where people could post anything they wanted and as long as the owners of bulletin board didn’t control what was posted on the board and were only providing a service to the community then they should not be held liable for the content of that bulletin board.
And here is where it gets a little tricky, the billionaire boys said something like what if someone posts child pornography on our site, we do want to be able to take that down and the government agreed, granting an exception for violating “community standards.”
But what has happened is that the Billionaire Boys are now taking down content that is not harmful or illegal, but content that they that takes an opposite political position to their own. Since the Billionaire Boys are avowed leftists, that means conservative content is being taken down every day.
To use Barr’s analogy again, now instead of allowing anyone to post anything the Billionaire Boys are going over the bulletin board with a fine toothed comb and taking down posts that don’t espouse their own leftist political views. Plus now they don’t just have one bulletin board but control practically all the bulletin boards.
Conservative content is regularly being taken down because it expresses a political view that the Billionaire Boys and their minions don’t like.
Republican Congressman Jim Jordan went through a long list of conservatives who have had their posts removed or been banned from sites because their posts violated, “community standards.”

If there was a corresponding list of Democratic Congressmen and leftist pundits who likewise had had their posts removed, then that would at least represent some attempt fairness; but there is not.
The big issue is censorship. Because these companies have been allowed by the federal government to become enormous and control so much content on the Internet, if they ban you it effectively bans you from getting your ideas out on the Internet where today most people get their information.
That’s very important right now. The Desperados control the House of Representatives, so there will be no legislative mandates issued by Congress to fix this gross imbalance – this over-centralization of power.
Therefore, Big Tech knows it can do what it wants up to and including the coming election.
President Trump is so concerned about the election fraud due to mail-in ballots that he even tweeted the following this morning:
“With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???”
Here’s the problem. Big Tech knows it only has to get over one final hurdle – the election in 98 days. This is do or die for them. If Trump wins, he will probably win back the Congress as well, then their Marxist ambitions to take over the United States fall flat. The minions of Satan will be fully prosecuted and the Republic – once again – will be saved.
And speaking of Minions of Satan, this one sidebar should interest you. According to this George Papadopoulos tweet from this morning:
“According to reports, treason charges are being looking into for those who perpetrated the counter intelligence trap and spying operation known as “the Russia hoax”.
The federal government has broken up monopolies before sometimes with great success. But whether the monopolies are broken-up or not, the federal government needs to take away the special protection these companies were afforded. Let them either go back to not controlling the content or de
