A California judge has ruled that social media giant Twitter can be sued for falsely advertising free speech. The judge said that Twitter’s policy of banning users “at any time, for any reason or for no reason” may constitute an “unconscionable contract” for a company which advertises free speech.
The judge rejected Twitter’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit from Jared Taylor, who was banned by the platform in December last year, according to Breitbart. Taylor, a self-described “white activist” may proceed with his lawsuit against Twitter because the social media company falsely advertises free speech, yet bans users for “any or no reason.” The judge also ruled that Twitter could be sued on the basis of misleading its users, due to the platform’s promise not to ban accounts on the basis of viewpoint or political affiliation, which is frequently violated.
“This ruling has massive implications for the platform going forward,” said Noah Peters, Jared Taylor’s lawyer. “this is the first time that a social media company’s argument that it can censor user speech has been rejected by a court.”
Taylor describes himself as a “race realist” and has defended white separatism, claiming that races are “not equal”, but his attorney says this trial is not about his client’s particular views, and that’s a correct assessment. The trial is about Twitter’s disallowance of free speech although they use that term to advertise the social media platform.
“Our lawsuit is not about whether Taylor is right or wrong,” Peters said in February. “It’s about whether Twitter and other technology companies have the right to ban individuals from using their services based on their perceived viewpoints and affiliations.”
By now, it should be well understood that the terms “hate facts” and “hate speech” are nothing more than buzzwords used by the left as an excuse to suppress the speech of those with which they disagree. This is becoming more and more apparent as we devolve quickly toward a fully totalitarian system too.
Breitbart reported that the most high-profile individual to be banned on this basis was Islam critic Tommy Robinson, who received a permanent ban from Twitter after he posted statistics showing that Muslims are vastly overrepresented in child grooming gangs in the UK. Robinson is now taking Twitter to court to prove that “facts are now treated as hate.” –SHTFPlan
Twitter employees have also been caught on camera boasting about their actions to keep conservatives and Trump supporters off the platform. They also, along with YouTube, have scrubbed videos that do not align with the government and mainstream media’s “official narrative” with regards to incidents such as the Parkland, Florida school shooting.
One employee even discussed shadowbanning political accounts, a practice that Twitter has continually denied using. Another employee claimed that accounts that expressed an interest in “god, guns, and America” were likely to be flagged as “bots.” Another employee,Mo Norai, explained that Twitter moderators regularly discriminated against accounts deemed to be pro-Trump.
Twitter’s double standards can be seen in the way it handles complaints of abuse against conservatives and individuals linked to conservatives. But it isn’t just Twitter who is attempting to censor and suppress free speech. YouTube, Google, and Facebook are on the front lines of the fight for totalitarianism by silencing those with whom they disagree, much like the Nazis of Hitler’s regime.

You won’t see CNN or anyone else in the media (except maybe Fox) bringing attention to this. Transcript: AMANPOUR: Such an important issue. And what about right now? As we’re seeing thousands of children come across — CLINTON: Oh. AMANPOUR: — shantied off into makeshift shelters. CLINTON: It’s horrible. AMANPOUR: Hard choice — let them stay in the United States or send them back? CLINTON: Well, two quick points. One, the numbers are increasing dramatically. And the main reason I believe why that’s happening is that the violence in certain of those Central American countries is increasing dramatically. And there is not sufficient law enforcement or will on the part of the governments of those countries to try to deal with this exponential increase in violence, drug trafficking, the drug cartels, and many children are fleeing from that violence. AMANPOUR: Should they be able to stay here? It’s safer. CLINTON: Well — it may be safer but that’s not the answer. I do not — AMANPOUR: Should they be sent back? CLINTON: Well, first of all, we have to provide the best emergency care we can provide. We have children 5 and 6 years old who have come up from Central America. We need to do more to provide border security in southern Mexico. AMANPOUR: So, you’re saying they should be sent back now? CLINTON: Well, they should be sent back as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families are, because there are concerns whether all of them should be sent back. But I think all of them who can be should be reunited with their families. And just as Vice President Biden is arguing today in Central America, we’ve got to do more. I started this when I was secretary to deal with the violence in this region to deal with border security. But we have so to send a clear message, just because your child gets across the border, that doesn’t mean the child gets to stay. So, we don’t want to send a message that is contrary to our laws or will encourage more children to make that dangerous journey.
AMANPOUR: We’re going to go on to a different topic. And this I’m going to read because it’s from Tumblr, who we’re partnering with. So, here we go.
(Natural News) In what can only be described by reasonable people as pathetic political manipulation, seven Democratic lawmakers showed up at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention facility over the weekend and demanded access.
The group of seven — New Jersey Reps. Bill Pascrell, Frank Pallone and Albio Sires, as well as fellow New York Reps. Jarrold Nadler, Hakeem Jeffries, Carolyn Maloney and Adriano Espaillat — made their obnoxious, unannounced visit on Father’s Day, of course, for maximum political effect.
As reported by Fox News, the pathetic display included “demands” to see families being detained at the New Jersey-based facility along with one member literally banging on a door, while another physically held a door open.
“We have gotten the door open at the Elizabeth, NJ ICE detention center and refusing to let it close until we are given access to the detainees,” Nadler tweeted.
Fox News noted further:
The Father’s Day episode was the latest in a series of similar trips by Democratic lawmakers to immigration detention centers, which are part of a broader effort to draw attention to the family members who have been separated by federal authorities while illegally crossing the border from Mexico into the United States.
Pascrell at one point complained on Twitter that ICE officials were making the lawmakers wait for nearly an hour after telling them they would be accommodated in about five minutes.
He then complained that ICE was following protocol — forcing the group to go through security because everyone does (which is procedure). What’s more, the facility granted the delegation access despite the fact that the rules state only “friends and family” of detainees can come in — and then only during visiting hours.
“Now they’re asking us to empty our pockets like we’re common criminals? We are duly elected Members of Congress — and we want access,” he arrogantly tweeted.
“The Congressman came unannounced but ICE accommodated their request and they were allowed to visit and meet with several detainees,” said ICE in a statement.
Where were they during the Obama years?
Earlier this month immigration officials and local police denied Democratic Sen. Jeff Merkley — who represents Oregon — entry to a facility in Texas, with one employee telling him to “please go away.”
At the New Jersey facility, Pallone said, “We’re here to stand against the Trump admin’s policies that have led to a sharp increase in detained immigrants and separated families.” (Related: Amazon caught selling portable concentration camps to imprison children at the border… cue HYSTERIA.)
What’s disgusting about all of this is that it’s phony. What’s taking place at the U.S.-Mexico border, largely, has been going on for years. It happened during the Obama administration as well, but these hypocrite Democrats weren’t about to protest then because…Obama.
In fact, as Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas admitted recently, the situation during Obama’s administration was intentionally downplayed and kept quiet (thanks to a largely compliant Pravda media), even though some kids were literally being kept in cages while others were handed over to criminal human traffickers.
Where were these Democrats then? Nowhere to be found.
So if this has been taking place for some time, why are Democrats feigning outrage now?
Part of the reason is hammer Trump on another issue (though Trump was elected, in large part, by promising to do exactly what he’s doing on the border).
But Democrats and their partners in the Pravda media have manufactured this “crisis” now because they can’t acknowledge or report how good the country is doing under Trump.
Record low unemployment (including for minorities and women). Satisfaction with the direction of our country is at a 12-year high. The stock market continues to grow, fattening retirement accounts for average Americans. U.S. economic growth is leaving the world behind.
That’s all due to Trump and, to some extent Republican, policies and leadership.
Since the Democrats won’t credit him and the Pravda media can’t because of Trump Derangement Syndrome, they’ve come together to manufacture a “child migrant crisis” that doesn’t exist.

At long last, the American people may FINALLY get some answers with regards to the Obama administration’s infamous g*n trafficking scandal dubbed “Fast and Furious.” As the leftist progressives continue to look for non-existent Russian boogie men under their beds, the Trump administration is promising to release the documents pertaining to the scandal that former Attorney General, Eric Holder, refused to provide. Fast and Furious was one of many scandals under the Obama administration yet there were no special prosecutors appointed, no grand juries convened, no leaked memos to the New York Times by way of a friendly and oh-so-helpful professor from Columbia, and no mysterious anonymous sources speaking to the Washington Post.
In case you have forgotten, Operation Fast and Furious was an operation during the Obama regime that worked in coordination with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) in which the federal government allowed criminals to buy g**s in Phoenix-area shops with the intention of tracking them as they were transported into Mexico. However, the ATF lost track of more than 1,400 of the more than 2,000 g**s they allowed smugglers to buy. Amanda Gonzalez, a spokeswoman for the House Oversight Committee, said in a statement to Fox News – “For over six years, the House Oversight Committee has fought for additional documents related to Operation Fast and Furious. Today, the Committee finally reached a conditional settlement with the Department of Justice. The Committee seeks all relevant facts so we can learn from the mistakes made by the Justice Department.
We have a responsibility to uncover why they worked so hard to hide this information from the Committee, the family of slain border patrol agent Brian Terry, and the American people.”
Terry was murdered in 2010 by an illegal alien with a weapon used in the epically botched Operation Fast and Furious. He died in a gunfight between Border Patrol agents and members of a six-man cartel “rip crew,” which patrolled the desert along the U.S.-Mexico border looking for drug dealers to rob. The cartel member suspected of k*****g Terry was apprehended in 2017. Terry’s family, specifically his brother Kent Terry want the scandal to be investigated and those responsible to be held accountable for their actions. Yet, Obama consistently states his administration was “scandal-free”. When reminded of scandals such as Fast and Furious that took place on his watch, Obama referred to them as “phony scandals”. American Thinker had this to say of so-called “phony scandals” stating – “Phony scandals are those that do not have a smidgeon of evidence of a crime, like alleged Trump collusion with the Russians or obstruction of an investigation that was never stopped or even slowed down.
Phony scandals do not produce body bags as the Obama administration produced in Benghazi and during Operation Fast and Furious — the Obama administration’s g*n-running operation in which it armed Mexican drug lords and cartels with heavy weapons for which the U.S. Border Patrol had no match or protection. That g*n-running operation led to the m****r of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.” Well, it seems this announcement just blew the lid off of one of the Obama regime’s “phony scandals”…
Reuters reports – “The U.S. Justice Department has agreed to provide congressional investigators confidential records on a failed g*n-trafficking operation during the Obama administration known as “Fast and Furious” that long has been criticized by Republican lawmakers.
