    Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) is leading an inquiry into whether President Joe Biden’s “Disinformation Governance Board” is pressuring big tech companies to increase their surveillance and censorship of conservative users, according to a letter exclusively obtained by Breitbart News. In a letter sent to the CEOs of Meta (Facebook), LinkedIn, TikTok, Twitter, Youtube, Snapchat, and Reddit, McMorris Rodgers asks whether Biden’s “disinformation” board has requested information about the companies’ political speech policies and if they would comply with any requests to remove political speech. The letter comes days after the attorneys general for Louisiana and Missouri sued the Biden administration for colluding with big tech to censor conservative political speech under the guise of combatting “misinformation.” The House Energy and Commerce Committee Ranking Member suspects Biden will use the disinformation board to increase the targeting of conservatives online. “We fully expect this will mean DHS will seek information from your company about conservative users, since President Biden has essentially identified them as political enemies,” she wrote. McMorris Rodgers called out the board’s director, Nina Jankowicz, for spreading disinformation herself, pointing toward her comments about...
    Erin Coates, The Western Journal April 1, 2021 0 Comments The Texas state Senate passed a bill Thursday forbidding social media companies from discriminating against users based on their political viewpoints or locations within the state. Senate Bill 12 would allow Texans who are wrongfully suspended or blocked for religious or political views on a social media platform, such as Facebook and Twitter, to get back on the site, the Washington Examiner reported. It calls for social media companies to be transparent about how they moderate content on their websites, give frequent updates on what content is removed and create an appeals process when a user’s content is removed. The bill would apply to social media companies with at least 100 million monthly viewers, so platforms such as Parler and Gab will not be among those included. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton will also be given the ability to sue any social media company that violates the new legislation. State Sen. Bryan Hughes, who authored the bill that was introduced at the beginning of March, announced the approval of...
    Former Vice President Mike Pence will head to South Carolina next month to deliver his first public address since the end of the Trump administration. Pence will keynote a dinner hosted by the Palmetto Family Council, a conservative Christian nonprofit, on April 29 in Columbia, South Carolina, Fox News confirmed on Monday. PENCE, DESANTIS, TOP 2024 GOP PRESIDENTIAL SURVEYS IF TRUMP DOESN'T RUN While Pence has remained quiet about his future political plans, pundits consider him a likely 2024 Republican presidential contender. The stop in South Carolina will no doubt spark more speculation, as the Palmetto state holds the first southern primary and votes third in the GOP presidential nominating calendar.

    TYLER, TX (CBSDFW.COM) — Texas Governor Gregg Abbott addressed Texans today about proposed legislation to address what he says is the censoring of Texans “based on the viewpoints they express.” They said that SB 12 will help prohibit social media companies from censoring Texans.

You still can’t yell fire in a crowded theater. But your political...

    Conservative Political Action Conference organizers have canceled the rapper Young Pharoah's appearance on Sunday after learning he held anti-Semitic views.  'We have just learned that someone we invited to CPAC has expressed reprehensible views that have no home with our conference or our organization,' CPAC's Twitterfeed said. 'The individual will not be participating at our conference.' Young Pharoah was to appear Sunday afternoon in a panel discussion at the Orlando-based conference, which has a theme this year of 'America Uncanceled.'    An hour later, former President Donald Trump was expected to make what's being billed as his political comeback speech.     Earlier Monday, the left-leaning Media Matter for America published some of Young Pharoah's anti-Semitic screeds, including that Judaism is a 'complete lie' and 'made up for political gain,' and 'all the censorship & pedophilia on social media is being done by Israeli Jews.'  Rapper Young Pharoah was to appear at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Sunday, an hour before President Donald Trump gives what is being billed as his political comeback speech CPAC organizers announced on Twitter that 'someone...
    A Republican state senator has introduced a bill that would require the state's Board of Regents to survey all employees at the main public universities to determine their political party affiliation. Senator Jim Carlin did not offer an explanation for his bill, but it comes after accusations that Iowa's public universities repressed the free speech of conservative students. The order would cover all employees at the University of Iowa, Iowa State University and University of Northern Iowa. The bill, introduced this week, would require the survey to hide the personal identity of the respondents but would separate the results out by job classification.

    An assault on free speech is coming. In the wake of the Capitol riots, Americans have already seen it play out on social media, with the conservative social media app Parler being shut down and blacklisted. The “woke” activists in Silicon Valley are not acting alone. They are being enabled and emboldened by anti-speech Democrats, who see any semblance of conservatism as a threat to their slanted, socialist worldview. With the Biden administration in power, Democrats are poised to attack the First Amendment with renewed fervor, shutting down the discourse they just so happen to oppose. When any form of free speech is threatened, all Americans are under attack. We need to brace for worse to come: Campaign finance “reform” Earlier this month, House Democrats reintroduced the disingenuously named “For the People Act,” which would only undermine the people’s right to engage in the political process. H.R. 1 would essentially serve as a ban on certain forms of political speech (read: conservative speech) by undoing the Citizens United decision. Under the bill’s provisions, nonprofit organizations that make campaign-related disbursements of $10,000 or more in a given...

WASHINGTON (AP) — With next week’s election looming, the CEOs of Twitter, Facebook and Google were scolded by Republicans at a Senate hearing Wednesday for alleged anti-conservative bias in the companies’ social media platforms and received a warning of coming restrictions from Congress. Lawmakers of both parties are assessing the companies’ tremendous power to disseminate speech and ideas, and are looking to challenge their long-enjoyed bedrock legal protections for online speech.

    A new poll published this week reports that a majority of conservative college students will self-censor this fall to avoid upsetting their leftist peers. By contrast, only 15 percent of Democratic respondents claim that they will censor their own political beliefs due to social pressures. According to a poll conducted by the College Fix, 54 percent of conservative students will self-censor this fall due to social pressures from their leftist peers. The poll asked student respondents if they will self-censor this fall to avoid upsetting their peers. “With the current political climate, do you expect to self-censor yourself in class this semester so your professors or peers don’t take offense at your ideas?” the poll reads. Breitbart News reported in February on a column in the Atlantic that highlighted the tendency of conservative students to hide their political beliefs around their liberal peers. The column also highlighted a statistic that suggested that many liberal students now believe that it’s permissible for them to shut down speech that they find offensive. Nicole Neily, the president of the First Amendment advocacy group Speech First,...
    A new study that was published Harvard lecturer Pippa Norris claims that leftist professors are unlikely to understand the experience of their conservative colleagues. According to Norris, leftist professors are more likely to believe that “there has been little or no change in respect for open academic debate and pressures to be politically correct.” In 2018, a separate study revealed that nearly 80 percent of academic departments at top universities are exclusively staffed by Democratic faculty members. According to a report by Campus Reform, a new study out of Harvard University suggests that leftist professors are unlikely to appreciate the significance of the ideological imbalance on American college campuses. In fact, many of the professors deny that universities around the country are facing a free speech crisis. The research, which was conducted by Harvard lecturer Pippa Norris, considered whether or not “cancel culture” is impacting academic freedom and open debate in the field of political science in the United States. Norris noted that some conservative professors engage in a “spiral of silence” in which they censor themselves to avoid social...
    Florida Rep Matt Gaetz has called for the Justice Department to investigate CEO Mark Zuckerberg for allegedly lying to Congress about political bias in the social media giant's content moderation practices.  The Republican congressman sent a letter to Attorney General Bill Barr on Monday accusing Zuckerberg of making 'materially false statements to Congress while under oath' during two hearings in April 2018.   'On both occasions, members of Congress asked Mr. Zuckerberg about allegations that Facebook censored and suppressed content supportive of President Donald Trump and other conservatives,' Gaetz wrote. 'In his responses, Mr. Zuckerberg repeatedly and categorically denied any bias against conservative speech, persons, policies, or politics. Mr. Zuckerberg also dismissed the suggestion that Facebook exercises any form of editorial manipulation.' Gaetz cited a recent investigation from Project Veritas, a right-wing activist group, which found that the 'overwhelming majority' of content filtered by Facebook's artificial intelligence was in support of Trump and other Republicans and conservative ideals.
