The Melania Factor

Democrats and their allies in Hollywood and the New York media don’t seem to get that by mocking Mrs. Trump and refusing her the fashion and style section coverage typically afforded the First Lady have only served to heighten her appeal to the Trump base and reinforce the idea that Democrats are too cruel to be trusted with the power of the federal government.

The Trump Video Silicon Valley Is Trying To Censor

It appears that the Leftwing oligarchs who run Silicon Valley, and especially the social media monopolists at Twitter and Facebook, keep trying to censor this Trump video. Unlike the social media giants, we want Americans to view it and judge for themselves, so please watch it and forward it to your family, friends, fellow church members, clubs and social networks if you like it too - it would be a real shame if CHQ readers and friends helped spread it and keep it live through the election.

Election Interference: Twitter Just Censored a Doctor, Public Health Expert, and GOP Chairwoman

Dr. Kelli Ward, The American Spectator

Big tech social media companies have thrived because they have been allowed to function as communication “platforms” rather than “publishers” — a key distinction. If they are publishers making editorial decisions, then they can be sued for libel; however, if they are simply platforms, they cannot. This was the point of President Trump’s recent executive order that put the social media giants on notice that they cannot have it both ways. If they are censoring content, then they will be labeled as publishers and will face all the legal liabilities that accompanies that status. It's about time.

Trump Promise Kept: Administration Acts To Protect Americans Against Online Censorship

We applaud the fact that President Trump and Secretary Ross agree with us that the time has passed for lame excuses from Big Tech. The Commerce Department petition is a good first step, however, absent Congress acting decisively to counter the threat to freedom of speech from Big Tech companies, it’s time for the federal government to also consider antitrust solutions for companies like Google and the rest of the Big Tech industry that have grown too powerful and too irresponsible.

Silicon Valley Ramps Up Censorship Of Conservatives

We all know that America's Frontline Doctors weren’t deplatformed and censored for providing misleading information about COVID-19, they were deplatformed and censored for providing information that demonstrates President Trump was right, and that contradicts and undermines the Democrats’ plan to ramp up the misery to help them defeat Trump in the 2020 election.

How many more times will Google censor conservatives, and then lie about it?

The Free Speech Alliance, which includes ConservativeHQ.com, has released a letter saying if Google won’t be honest and fix its censorship problem, then Congress must act decisively to counter the threat to freedom of speech from Google and other Big Tech companies. It’s time for the federal government to consider antitrust solutions for companies like Google and the rest of the Big Tech industry that have grown too powerful and too irresponsible.

Twitter as Prototype of the New High-Tech Totalitarianism

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Social media giants have been shielded from such liability by Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996, legislation enacted in the salad days of the Internet when few anticipated how these companies would evolve into global monopolies and concerns were different. President Trump has stepped in with an executive order essentially attempting to rein in Section 230. Some Democrats, including Joe Biden, have wanted to do the same thing—at least until Trump supported it. Now we’ll see. Trump is obviously using his bully pulpit to convince Twitter to play fair, but ultimately, this is a job for Congress to address.

Trump Executive Order Strikes At The Heart Of Social Media’s Leftist Censorship

President Trump’s Executive Order puts the Trump administration squarely behind our interpretation of Section 230 platform immunity: By making itself an editor of content, such a provider forfeits any protections from being deemed a "publisher or speaker" under subsection 230 (c) (1), which properly applies only to a provider that merely provides a platform for content supplied by others.

Twitter Tilts 2020 With an Ad Ban

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has announced that his platform will no longer accept political advertising. He thinks being able to buy advertising is an unfair and undemocratic advantage: "While internet advertising is incredibly powerful and very effective for commercial advertisers, that power brings significant risks to politics, where it can be used to influence votes to affect the lives of millions." In the final analysis, this is all about what Jack Dorsey and his leadership at Twitter want: control of their public conversation and the ability to decide what is and is not acceptable. Advertising diminishes that power. So advertising must go.

The Assaults On Trump Explained

What we have been witnessing is not American politics as usual, but a sophisticated intelligence operation to destabilize and overthrow the legitimate government of the United States. Each step along the path to impeachment is exactly what the CIA or the intelligence agency of a foreign power would do to destabilize and eventually replace the leader of an unfriendly government.

Senate GOP Needs A Spine Transplant

It’s time Republican Senators got a spine transplant from House Members like Reps. Andy Biggs, Matt Gaetz, Steve Scalise, Devin Nunes and John Ratcliffe. We urge CHQ readers and friends to call Republican Senators, the toll-free Capitol Switchboard number is (1-866-220-0044). Tell them this is a fight to the death for the future of constitutional government and you want them in it on President Trump’s side.

Will the Real Mitt Romney Please Shut Up?

Jared Whitley, Real Clear Politics

On the one hand we have a party whose policies lead toward failure, ruin, and urban rot – a party that demands total control over every aspect of American life but cannot even run monolithically Democratic cities like Portland or San Francisco. On the other hand, protecting us from that we have a guy who sends mean tweets and calls people names. I’d call that a bargain. And I’d call Mitt Romney jealous and petty for not acknowledging this. He's only impressing people who didn't vote for him in 2012. There is hardly any such thing as a former Trump supporter. There are, however, many, many former Romney supporters.

#WheresLindsey

The Twitter hashtag #WheresLindsey has had over 100,000 associated tweets, we urge our friends and followers on Twitter tweet this article using that hashtag. In the alternative, the toll-free Capitol Switchboard number is (1-866-220-0044), please call Sen. Graham and urge him to subpoena all the miscreants he has promised to bring before his Committee, but whom he has so far failed to put under oath in front of the American people.

Mitt Romney Implodes After Outing of Secret Twitter Persona

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

What we have is yet another glimpse of just how unprincipled Mitt Romney is. He believes Trump appeals to racism and misogyny — but he was thrilled to have his endorsement in 2012. He told liberal Massachusetts voters in 2002 he was “not a partisan Republican” but a “moderate” whose “views are progressive.” But in 2012, running for the GOP presidential nomination, he told his conservative audience he was a “severe conservative.” The difference between what happens when conservatives are excited to rally to their candidate and what happens when they are not could not be greater than in the response of the GOP base to Romney in 2012 and Trump in 2016.

Conservatives Launch “Internet Accountability Project” To Hold Big Tech Accountable For Their Bad Acts

The Internet Accountability Project (IAP), a new 501(c)(4) nonprofit advocacy organization, has been launched to oppose “Big Tech” and hold them accountable for their bad acts. Mike Davis, a former top Senate Judiciary Committee counsel who guided the Kavanaugh confirmation and Rachel Bovard, a conservative policy leader will head the new organization.

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.
