The government is about to shut down an anti-Trump news network for committing one crime

Published

on

The mainstream media’s anti-Trump attacks are more rampant than ever.

But one network just crossed a line nobody saw coming.

And now the government is about to shut them down for committing one crime.

The First Amendment provides for freedom to the press, to even oftentimes print horrible things.

But generally, those things are not illegal.

That doesn’t seem to be the case with Bloomberg News, which is owned by presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg.

Now Bloomberg has been slapped with a complaint at the Federal Election Commission (FEC), after a Media watchdog alleged they violated the law when they came out stating they will not investigate their founder, or any other Democrat, and will instead spend their time investigating President Trump.

Media Research Center’s complaint points out that the “media exemption” given to news organizations that allows them to cover political candidates without needing to disclose finances doesn’t apply if the organization fails to “give reasonably equal coverage to all opposing candidates.”

NewsBusters reports:

“On Monday, The Media Research Center (MRC) filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) against Bloomberg LP, the owner of Bloomberg News, Michael Bloomberg and Mike Bloomberg 2020, Inc.

The complaint maintains that the policy adopted by Bloomberg News to omit investigating Mike Bloomberg and the other Democratic presidential candidates while continuing to investigate Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump potentially is an improper contribution to Bloomberg’s campaign under FEC regulations.

According to FEC law, the “media exemption” that would normally exempt media organizations from federal campaign finance disclosure laws does not apply if “the facility is owned or controlled by any political party, political committee, or candidate” should the organization fail to “give reasonably equal coverage to all opposing candidates.”

The complaint asserts that the decision to investigate President Donald Trump and not the opposing Democratic candidates can be considered a contribution – or a thing of value – under the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) and should therefore be investigated by the FEC for potential FECA violations.”

This complaint is the first hiccup in Bloomberg’s campaign, which he has already dropped tens of millions of dollars of his own money into.

Many political “experts” predict that Bloomberg could beat President Trump if he were to face him in 2020.

But if this complaint results in massive fines for his “news” publication, it would be a horrible look for Bloomberg.

Do you think Michael Bloomberg could beat President Trump in 2020?

    There is no way this character could beat Donald J. Trump in the presidential race. HUH. He is already continuing to prove how truly crooked he is. Hopefully the FEC will do their job and correct the illegalities he is trying to get away with.

    1) journalists & news media must be held to same DEFAMATION & libel laws as everyone else
    2) journalists & news media should be RESEARCHING FACTS & REPORTING FACTS so viewers can make best decisions regarding families lives
    “FREEDOM OF THE PRESS” does not mean freedom to break defamation & libel laws

    Way to go, Brent Bozell and MRC, nice catch. Hold Bloomberg and his network accountable. This policy is plain bias, a clear FEC violation and constitutes a big contribution to Bloomberg’s candidacy. Impose a yuge fine. I can’t remember if President Trump has appointed enough FEC commissioners to swing the board conservative. I hope so.

    Bloomberg is nothing but a loud-mouthed, multi-billionaire mugwump. For those who don’t know, a mugwump is a person who comes to a fence, ends up with his mug on one side, his wump on the other and can’t remember whether he was coming or going.

    With all the fake news hoaxes being thrown at him, President Trump amazingly continue to do the job the American people elected him to do. Too bad we can’t say the same about the swamp who have spent the past three years obsessed with impeachment because they know that is the only way they can prevent a Trump victory in 2020.

    You’ve got to be kidding! There isn’t any candidate that could hold a candle to our great President Trump. President Trump will win 2020 in a landslide, and you can take that to the bank.Remember the Lord chose President Trump to be our great president to turn our country in the right direction, and to keep us safe. He’s don’t so many wonderful things, and with absolutely no support from those vial liberals. Thank and praise the Lord.

    Right now, the FEC is missing their lead comissioner which means they don’t have a quorum…they have NO power to do anything and Moscow Mitch has refused to have a vote to replace the missing man. Right now, the FEC does NOT have legal authority to investigate anything until that person is replaced.

    Bloomberg will never beat Trump in 2020. His biased media is well known and not appreciated. On a more humorous note, maybe he is purposely wanting Trump to win, and is using his own news outlet to purposely portray unfairness, bias and media control as a Democrat agenda to insure a Trump victory.

    Bill, he also could be described as a post turtle. For those who don’t know what that is, think about a turtle on top of a fence post out in the middle of nowhere. You don’t know how it got there, don’t know why it is there, know it doesn’t belong there, but know it isn’t going anywhere.

You won’t believe what The View wants to do to Tucker Carlson and Tulsi Gabbard

Published

on

The war in Ukraine has sparked a global crisis with many devastating consequences.

Worse yet, the war propaganda coming from the so-called “mainstream” media is appalling.

And you won’t believe what The View wants to do to Tucker Carlson and Tulsi Gabbard.

The Democrat Media Complex and the warmongers of both parties are itching for escalation in the war in Ukraine.

On the Left, Congressman Eric Swalwell floated the idea of expelling Russian students from the country.

Neoconservatives on the Right like Adam Kinzinger – whose Congressional district was gerrymandered out of existence by Illinois Democrats – wants a no-fly zone over Ukraine, and Senator Lindsey Graham called for someone in the Russian government to assassinate Vladimir Putin.

People who are calling for peace and don’t want to see brinkmanship with a nuclear power, and people who are pushing back against dangerous war propaganda have been labeled “collaborators,” and even “traitors.”

Such is the case with Fox News host Tucker Carlson and former Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.

That’s why the harpies on The View want Carlson and Gabbard investigated and arrested by the Department of Justice.

So-called “Republican” Ana Navarro, who hasn’t espoused a real conservative opinion in a decade, argued, “I think DOJ (Department of Justice) in the same way it is setting up a task force to investigate oligarchs, should look into people who are Russian propagandists and shilling for Putin.”

The establishment is so hot for war, combating propaganda and resisting American involvement is somehow tantamount to “shilling for Putin.”

Whoopi Goldberg got in on the act and said, “They used to arrest people for doing stuff like this. If they thought you were colluding with a Russian agent. If they thought you were putting out information or taking information and handing over to Russia. They used to actually investigate stuff like this.”

Goldberg’s statement is mind-blowing considering she was highly critical of the Hollywood blacklist of the past.

There were communists in the State Department, media, entertainment, and academia that were actually collaborating with the Soviet Union, and the Left believed the McCarthy Era was the worst thing that ever happened in America.

It’s impossible to oppose McCarthyism and call for Carlson and Gabbard to be investigated and arrested.

There is no way that the panelists of The View would have been on board with arresting people who opposed the Vietnam War.

Carlson, who has the top rated show in cable news, is probably the strongest anti-war voice on television.

And Gabbard, a former Army reserve officer, became persona non grata for her anti-war positions.

The ladies of The View and the Left more broadly are exposing themselves to be authoritarians.

One journalist’s lawsuit could end Big Tech censoring conservatives

Published

on

Social media companies suppressing conservative speech is getting out of hand.

Now someone is fighting back.

And one journalist’s lawsuit could end Big Tech censoring conservatives.

Twitter banned former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson for supposedly spreading “misinformation” about the coronavirus vaccine.

Berenson’s “crime” was posting that the COVID vaccine did not stop transmission of the virus.

In Berenson’s lawsuit, the former New York Times reporter argues that his comments were objectively true.

Berenson also cites California law, which defines common carriers as a platform that “offers to the public to carry persons, property, or messages.”

This argument could prove vital as Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas hinted in an April opinion that Big Tech companies fall under the definition of a common carrier like the phone or mail company, which would limit the ability of Big Tech to censor speech.

Berenson also argued that Twitter acted as an agent of the government to censor his speech, citing Twitter banning Berenson shortly after Joe Biden called on Big Tech companies to censor “misinformation” about the coronavirus.

“The extraordinarily close nexus between the July 2021 statements by senior executive branch officials—including President Biden himself—calling for censorship by such companies and Twitter’s corresponding immediate actions against Mr. Berenson,” the lawsuit added.

There is already established case law that the government cannot pressure private companies to carry out actions that would be unconstitutional if the government performed them.

That argument – as well as the common carrier contention – lays out two legal paths for Berenson to argue his case and potentially find a receptive audience at the Supreme Court.

Conservatives waited for years for a manner in which to secure legal recourse to Big Tech’s ideologically motivated censorship.

Thanks to Berenson’s lawsuit and Big Tech’s overreach, they may have finally found a silver bullet.

Big Tech is trying to censor one undeniable truth about the COVID vaccine

Published

on

Social media censorship is out of control.

Ever since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Big Tech began banning users for posting true information.

And now Big Tech is trying to censor one undeniable truth about the COVID vaccine.

According to a new policy implemented by Twitter, the social media platform can now impose penalties up to a permanent suspension for posting that a vaccinated individual can spread COVID.

“When Tweets include misleading information about Covid-19, we may place a label on those tweets that includes corrective information about that claim,” Twitter’s policy reads. “We may apply labels to Tweets that contain, for example . . . false or misleading claims that people who have received the vaccine can spread or shed the virus (or symptoms, or immunity) to unvaccinated people.”

At the start of the pandemic, social media platforms banned users for posting that the virus likely escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China.

Now Twitter is threatening to ban anyone for posting truthful information about vaccinated individuals still being able to spread COVID.

Twitter’s new policy runs contrary to Centers for Disease Control guidelines that state that “risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection in fully vaccinated people cannot be completely eliminated as long as there is continued community transmission of the virus.”

In addition, Nature.com reported on a study published in October, which showed that fully vaccinated individuals possessed a lower risk of spreading COVID, but that spread was still possible and the vaccine’s protection against spread waned over time.

“The authors found that although the vaccines did offer some protection against infection and onward transmission, Delta dampened that effect. A person who was fully vaccinated and then had a ‘breakthrough’ Delta infection was almost twice as likely to pass on the virus as someone who was infected with Alpha. And that was on top of the higher risk of having a breakthrough infection caused by Delta than one caused by Alpha,” Nature.com reported.

One reason so many people do not trust either the vaccines or the authorities promising the vaccines are safe and effective is because no one allows an honest discussion of the vaccines.

Any hint that the vaccines may not be 100% perfect is labeled as misinformation, a conspiracy theory or “anti-vaxx.”

But Twitter censoring people for posting an honest fact that vaccinated people – while at lower risk – can still spread the coronavirus leaves people with the impression that elite institutions have something to hide.
