Facebook shouldn't be political speech police

Byron York, Washington Examiner

"We don't fact-check political ads," Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a recent speech. Facebook chooses not to play the role of speech police, at least as far as political ads are concerned. "As a principle, in a democracy, I believe people should decide what is credible, not tech companies," Zuckerberg said. It's an understatement to say Facebook has problems. It has abused its users' privacy. There are legitimate complaints about its bias. It has a frightening power over the world of journalism. It could face government antitrust action. The ad policy Zuckerberg outlined — if it is followed — would be the right thing to do.

Live Action Proves Facebook Censorship Of Pro-Lifers

Not only did Facebook fail to get disinterested perspectives, they appear to have gone out of their way to find pro-abortion activists whose public opposition to pro-life views is indisputable. This is clear evidence of bias and discrimination against Live Action's over three million strong Facebook community members and an outrageous act of censorship on the part of Facebook.

Silicon Valley’s Corporate Totalitarianism Growing

The most disturbing attribute of a corporate social credit system is not that it’s invasive, but that it’s extralegal. Crimes are punished outside the legal system, which means no presumption of innocence, no legal representation, no judge, no jury, and often no appeal says tech and society commentator Mike Elgan.

Facebook Head Fakes Conservatives With Empty Bias Report

Former Arizona Republican Senator Jon Kyl's long-awaited report on Facebook’s bias against conservatives was a complete white wash of Facebook's anti-conservative culture. It is becoming increasingly clear that legislation, such as Senator Josh Hawley’s (R-Mo.) Ending Support for Internet Censorship Act, is the only way to rein-in Big Tech and end social media's censorship of conservatives.

How Long Before Hong Kong Suffers Bloody Communist Crackdown?

Demands by Hong Kong citizens for freedom and government accountability represent an existential threat to the system of social credit-imposed conformity that now undergirds Communist Chinese society. The United States must be prepared to confront the Communist Chinese strongly and firmly if and when the much-anticipated crackdown comes.

The Secret To A Trump Landslide

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
There’s no guarantee that just because the Democrats set themselves on fire on national TV Trump is going to walk away with an easy 2020 victory. The real secret to creating a Donald Trump landslide in 2020 is for conservatives to take the lead in nationalizing the 2019-2020 elections by BRANDING the Democrats using targeted direct marketing through new and alternative media, especially in battle ground states and key congressional districts.

Don’t Let Zuckerberg Kill Free Speech

Betsy McCaughey, The American Spectator

The fact is internet platforms are more than just private companies. They’ve become like public utilities. We are just as dependent on Facebook and Google as on the local electric company. ConEdison can’t deny us service because of our political views. Facebook shouldn’t be allowed to either. Google, Facebook, Twitter, and others, though private sector companies — are the new public square. The biggest threat to a legitimate outcome in 2020 is not foreign interference. It’s left-leaning social media giants tilting the election by silencing viewpoints they don’t like. It’s already happening.

The Dawn Of Corporate Totalitarianism

While constitutional liberty should protect the rights of association and religious liberty, granting businesses the right to determine who they will serve based on the customer’s ideas, political affiliation or viewpoint is the first step toward replacing constitutional liberty with an oppressive system of corporate social credit.

CNN Officially Out Of Investigative Journalism

Given CNN's history of biased coverage of President Trump, it seems clear to us that, based on the results of the numerous studies the MRC has conducted on the network, CNN long ago got out of the investigative journalism field, it has just taken Jeff Zucker all this time to admit it.

Did The Establishment Media Have Any Credibility To Lose?

The establishment media has been leaning left since the 1970s. Trump gave everyone permission to acknowledge whose side the media is really on, and those outside the establishment are no longer bashful about saying they do not trust the media to provide accurate facts free from bias in favor of the liberal establishment.

Students Love The “Green New Deal” Until They Hear What’s In It

The problem for Democrats is now obvious: Having created their army of brainwashed little climate change monsters, the have to keep moving Left to satisfy their appetite for bigger government, more regulations and more laws and more limits on what we can do, more restrictions on what we can think and say and become, and the “Green New Deal” is just the start.

Little Climate Change Monsters Turn On Democrats

The problem for Democrats is now obvious: Having created their army of brainwashed little climate change monsters, they cannot move fast enough to satisfy their appetite for bigger government, more regulations and more laws and more limits on what we can do, think, say and become, and the “Green New Deal” is just the start.

Democrat Presidential Candidates To Provide Comic Relief This Week

his week’s Senate debate on the Democrats’ “Green New Deal” is going to be comical, but never forget that behind the zany ideas is the same cold iron hand of Socialist authoritarianism that has killed millions every place and every time it has been tried.

Run Beto, Run

The Democrat presidential primary field is expanding and morphing at a pace rivaling that of the Blob in the eponymous 1958 Steve McQueen sci-fi movie, with Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke about to be the latest Democrat to be absorbed into its formless bulk.

The Left’s 2018 victory was fueled by millions of small-dollar donors—if Conservatives don’t catch up quickly, we will lose America Part 2 of 2

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
All total, ActBlue served as the conduit for raising more than $1.6 billion in the 2017-18 election cycle.  And remember, all of that went to the Democrats. In the midterm elections, the leftist tilt in small donations was critical for the Democrats’ success in taking over the House of Representatives.  The future is even more bleak—unless we conservatives wake up and get busy.

Bernie Sanders’ Socialist Platform Raises $6 Million Crushes Other Democrats

Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders raised $6 million in the first 24 hours after he announced his campaign for President. These donors are not attracted by his charismatic good looks – which are totally absent – nor are they attracted by his oratorical skills, again absent, what they are attracted to are his Socialist policies and his record of fighting for them.
