BREAKING: Rep. Matt Gaetz Filing Federal Complaint Against Twitter After He Caught Them Red-Handed

Published

on

Social networking giant Twitter is finding itself in serious hot water as Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) filed a Federal Election Commission (FEC) complaint against the company. This follows the revelation Twitter shadow banned his account.

Shadow banning is the act of blocking a user or their content from an online community such that it will not be readily apparent to the user that they have been banned. This, in turn, makes the user’s comments or posts invisible or significantly less prominent to other users of the online community, in this case, Twitter in hopes that the lack of response or reaction to their comments will bore or frustrate the user and they will eventually leave the site.

Just two days after Twitter told Congress that they absolutely and emphatically are not politically biased when censoring content, several prominent conservatives discovered that the social media giant automatically includes them in a site-wide “Quality Filter Discrimination” shadowban which prevent anyone not already following them from viewing their posts.

Screenshots materialized earlier this week showing the Florida Republican’s account would not autocomplete in search results. The lawmaker’s office said it was “investigating the depths and impact,” of the serious allegations, noting his Twitter engagement/growth was down by 75% after Twitter changed its algorithm in May.

The office of Rep. Gaetz also commented on the suppression of the Congressman’s accounts stating – “Our office is aware of claims that Twitter has discriminated against multiple accounts maintained by Congressman Gaetz. We are investigating the depths and impact of these serious charges. It is curious that these allegations would arise the week following Congressman Gaetz’s heated exchange with Twitter senior executives before the House Judiciary Committee. Congressman Gaetz continues to believe that interactive computer services, such as Twitter, should not discriminate against content while simultaneously asserting that they are a nonbiased public forum under federal law.”

Gaetz, a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, stated upon discovery of the shadowban of his Twitter account – “The evidence is piling up that I am being treated differently on Twitter than people on the political Left and I don’t like that because I enjoy the Twitter platform, I enjoy the engagement, I enjoy the candor. I would think that having won my election with 69 percent of the vote to serve in the Congress that the marketplace of ideas could accommodate my views.”

Gaetz believes an FEC complaint is necessary arguing that if his political opponents have better access to the Twitter platform than he does, then it provides his political rivals an unfair advantage by not giving equal visibility. He explains it is no different than a company refusing to provide billboard, radio, or television time for one party over another.

Gaetz adds – “So I believe that Twitter may have illegally donated to the campaigns of my opponents by prejudicing against my content.”

Appearing on the Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, Gaetz confirmed to host Tucker Carlson that an FEC complaint was officially filed against Twitter.

Gaetz stated to Carlson – “I’m certain there were only four members of Congress who had their voices suppressed on Twitter: Matt Gaetz, Jim Jordan Mark Meadows, and Devin Nunes. My suspicion is if people were effetely communicating a conservative message, they got caught in Twitter’s troll trap.”

Speaking on the effectiveness of the FEC complaint against the social networking giant, Gaetz emphatically stated his belief that the FEC can effectively and punitively address this attempt to censor certain ideologies and political beliefs. Gaetz told Tucker – The FEC can “absolutely then institute fines, just like they can institute fines and punish against any company that illegally makes a corporate donation to a political campaign.”

It seems Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey may have pushed his apparent anti-conservative agenda just a little too far as the evidence continues to mount – even among the left-leaning mainstream media – that Twitter has been shadowbanning various prominent and influential Conservatives on the social media site, thus limiting the number of people able to view content from those affected by the shadow ban. Twitter initially tried to deny claims of shadowbanning by explicitly stating that they do not engage in the practice. Except they then went on to offer a detailed description of how they do exactly that.

Twitter’s aggressive censorship of conservative accounts was noticed Thursday afternoon by the Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra after he noticed a significant reduction in activity and engagement directly following a viral tweet with 3.85 million views in which Rep. Maxine Waters (CA-D) called for the public harassment and public confrontation of members of the Trump administration. Using an account checking tool at shadowban.eu, a significant amount of influential conservative Twitter users discovered they too were shadowbanned.

On Wednesday an article in the left-leaning VICE confirmed Saavedra’s report revealing that Twitter has indeed been shadow banning conservative users limiting who can engage or view their content. Twitter executives initially attempted to blame a site-wide “Quality Filter Discrimination” for the shadow bans, which they claim prevents anyone not already following a user from viewing their posts. Yet Vice noted that many conservative accounts simply are not found when typing names into the Twitter search engine.

“The Republican Party’s chair Ronna McDaniel, several conservative Republican Congressmen, and Donald Trump Jr.’s spokesman no longer appear in the auto-populated drop-down search box on Twitter, VICE News has learned. It’s a shift that diminishes their reach on the platform — and the same one being deployed against prominent racists to limit their visibility. The profiles continue to appear when conducting a full search — but not in the more convenient and visible drop-down bar. (The accounts appear to also populate if you already follow the person.)”

Vice found the same was not true for Democrats, stating –

“Democrats are not being “shadow banned” in the same way, according to a VICE News review. McDaniel’s counterpart, Democratic Party chair Tom Perez, and liberal members of Congress — including Reps. Maxine Waters, Joe Kennedy III, Keith Ellison, and Mark Pocan — all continue to appear in drop-down search results. Not a single member of the 78-person Progressive Caucus faces the same situation in Twitter’s search.”

Saavedra also noted that “Vile anti-Semite and Hitler worshipper Louis Farrakhan is NOT shadowbanned.”

Meanwhile, Gaetz and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (CA-R) took to Twitter mocking the company’s attempts to “explain” and effectively deny that said shadowbanning was taking place in a series of tweets.

Nunes tweets – “Feeling good about ⁦@Twitter⁩ explaining how I wasn’t shadow banned…”

Gaetz responded – “It was apparently our “behavior” that got us treated differently?”

To which Nunes promptly tweeted back with – “Sorry @mattgaetz I can’t see you in the shadows…who are you??”

Comedic effort aside, this is frightening and if one knows history at all? We have been here before. It did not end well. As George Orwell notes in 1984 – “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

* By

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

...

* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
