Senate Democrats are circulating their plan to take control of the internet.
The plans include mandatory location verification, mandatory identity identification, and disclosure requirements for political speech.
Here is a link to the document.
A leaked memo circulating among Senate Democrats contains a host of bonkers authoritarian proposals for regulating digital platforms, purportedly as a way to get tough on Russian bots and fake news. To save American trust in “our institutions, democracy, free press, and markets,” it suggests, we need unprecedented and undemocratic government intervention into online press and markets, including “comprehensive (GDPR-like) data protection legislation” of the sort enacted in the E.U.
Titled “Potential Policy Proposals for Regulation of Social Media and Technology Firms,” the draft policy paper—penned by Sen. Mark Warner and leaked by an unknown source to Axios—the paper starts out by noting that Russians have long spread disinformation, including when “the Soviets tried to spread ‘fake news’ denigrating Martin Luther King” (here he fails to mention that the Americans in charge at the time did the same). But NOW IT’S DIFFERENT, because technology.
“Today’s tools seem almost built for Russian disinformation techniques,” Warner opines. And the ones to come, he assures us, will be even worse.
Here’s how Warner is suggesting we deal:
Mandatory location verification. The paper suggests forcing social media platforms to authenticate and disclose the geographic origin of all user accounts or posts.
Mandatory identity verification: The paper suggests forcing social media and tech platforms to authenticate user identities and only allow “authentic” accounts (“inauthentic accounts not only pose threats to our democratic process…but undermine the integrity of digital markets”), with “failure to appropriately address inauthentic account activity” punishable as “a violation of both SEC disclosure rules and/or Section 5 of the [Federal Trade Commission] Act.”
Bot labeling: Warner’s paper suggests forcing companies to somehow label bots or be penalized (no word from Warner on how this is remotely feasible)
Define popular tech as “essential facilities.” These would be subject to all sorts of heightened rules and controls, says the paper, offering Google Maps as an example of the kinds of apps or platforms that might count. “The law would not mandate that a dominant provider offer the serve for free,” writes Warner. “Rather, it would be required to offer it on reasonable and non-discriminatory terms” provided by the government.
Other proposals include more disclosure requirements for online political speech, more spending to counter supposed cybersecurity threats, more funding for the Federal Trade Commission, a requirement that companies’ algorithms can be audited by the feds (and this data shared with universities and others), and a requirement of “interoperability between dominant platforms.”
Melania Honored Military Moms With Special Dress, Outclasses Michelle By A Mile [OPINION]
American people love First Lady Melania Trump. Especially in comparison to former First Lady Michelle Obama
American people love First Lady Melania Trump. Especially in comparison to former First Lady Michelle Obama. While quiet, she is classy and dignified and they love that her initiatives focus on something she is passionate about… children. Recently she attended a ceremony to give honors to military wives and moms. What she did while there blew everyone out of the water.
The Patriot Journal reported,
“Her outfits often make international headlines for the messages they convey. She and her incredible stylist team make every effort to craft the perfect look for any occasion. In Saudi Arabia for example, the newspapers celebrated Melania’s fashion choices during her trip. Even though she refused to wear a head covering, as women in Saudi Arabia are required to do, the newspapers there called her look, “classy and conservative.”
Our First Lady honors those she comes in contact with, by being sensitive in the manner in which she dresses. Her clothes are often a sign of respect as well, which is even more important. For instance, her look at a recent event to celebrate military mothers and spouses showed how much she honors and respects America and those who help protect her (and others).
Melania Trump went for a classic look Wednesday when she showed up in a blue coat dress at an event celebrating military mothers and spouses. The first lady paired the double-breasted navy blue dress with a matching navy patent leather belt. ‘Mother’s Day, which is this Sunday, is celebrated just one time per year. I don’t know about all of you, but I think mothers should be celebrated each and every day,’ Trump shared with the group, thanking them for the sacrifice they make every day for our country.”Her dress wasn’t merely stunning, it was a respectful nod to the Dress Blues that service members of the Navy wear. The contrast between this event and events the Obama’s held is striking. The former First Couple only hosted opulent parties with nothing but A-listers and shunned the common man. The Trumps on the other hand host military moms and spouses and shun the A-listers. And yet the left still can’t figure out why they lost. Their condescending treatment of middle America is no different than their condescending treatment towards the First Family.
In fact, high profile liberal designers like Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford joined a list of fashion gurus who said they’d refuse to dress Melania Trump when her husband was elected. Ford reached new levels of pettiness when he stated that he didn’t want to style Melania because, “I’m a Democrat, and voted for Hillary, and [am] very sad and disappointed that she’s not in office.” Considering some of the hideous gowns Tom Ford designed for Michelle Obama, Americans should be thankful he’s staying away from Melania. In fact, the First Lady is becoming a style icon just fine without any help from the left. And her dedication to honor those who are important to this country comes through loud and clear!”
President Trump, his family, his wife the First Lady Melania Trump, and the administration have made it their mission to make military families front and center of the work that they do. While military families were often ignored in the past they certainly are not anymore. Their is a never ending amount of events that the current administration hosts to honor military families and the sacrifice they make.
During the event the President discussed the hardships that military spouses deal with as a result of long deployments. Emphasizing that they often take on more than they bargained for when their families are uprooted and shipped half way around the world. President Trump made sure they were aware of his commitment to all families that serve in the armed forces. Which is why he made sure to mention that Congress with his help implemented the biggest pay raise the military has seen in a very long time.
The U.S. Army said in a press release,
“”[My] administration is totally committed to every family that serves in the United States armed forces,” Trump said. “Earlier this year, I was proud to sign that big pay raise … and I am proud of it.” Noting that the White House is taking action to expand employment opportunities for military spouses, the president said service members’ spouses would be given “treatment like never before,” noting that the unemployment rate among military spouses is more than 90 percent.
But that is going to change, he added. “[For] a long time, military spouses have already shown the utmost devotion to our nation, and we want to show you our devotion in return,” the president said. “America owes a debt of gratitude to our military spouses — we can never repay you for all that you do.” Following his remarks, Trump signed an executive order addressing military spouse unemployment by providing greater opportunities for military spouses to be considered for federal competitive service positions.
The order holds agencies accountable for increasing their use of the noncompetitive hiring authority for military spouses, and American businesses across the country are also encouraged to expand job opportunities for military spouses, the president said.”

New Mexico Judge Who Let 5 Extremists Go Just Became A Victim Of Terrorism [Opinion]
This judge just found out how it feels to become a victim herself!
One of the biggest stories out there this week, or at least it should be, is the compound in New Mexico where 11 children were taken into custody and their parents arrested on numerous charges. The family is Muslim and it is being alleged that the children were radicalized and were being trained to shoot up a school. All of this is passing in the wind of news out there. It definitely does not look like they were up to anything good and the children were malnourished and in need of care.
I have also heard that it is alleged that a child died on the premises and was buried there. 3-year-old Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj, who had been missing since December, allegedly died amid a ritualistic religious ceremony held on the grounds in an effort to “cast out demonic spirits,” Reuters reported. Public defenders argued the boy’s father was trying to heal the child by reading passages from the Koran but prosecutors claimed he was denying the boy medication. One of the children taken into custody claimed that the boy had died in February. The children said they were told the boy would be resurrected as Jesus and guide them on which “corrupt institutions” to attack, NBC reported citing investigators.
Yesterday, a Democratic state judge named Sarah Backus in New Mexico caved to political correctness pressure from the defense attorney of the adults in the compound. She granted bail/bond to the five Islamic radicals that had been taken into custody and said they were not a threat to the community. Backus granted each suspect an unsecured bond, clearing the way for them to be released pending trial. Prosecutors argued the family had trained children in the use of firearms in the rural compound and should remain in custody. But an attorney for one suspect said they were following religious rituals that might be viewed differently if they were white Christians instead of black Muslims.
But there have been further developments in regards to letting these individuals out on bail. Jany Leveille, one of the five suspects arrested at the “extremist Muslim” compound in northern New Mexico, has been transferred to the custody of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said Tuesday. The remaining detainees are currently still in custody, the sheriff has said.
Siraj Wahhaj, 40, another suspect from the compound, is being held on an outstanding warrant from Georgia, while the three others allegedly involved, Lucas Morten, Hujrah Wahhaj, and Subhannah Wahhaj are still incarcerated pending the fulfillment of their release conditions. They were arrested on Aug. 4th at their compound near the Colorado state line. The judge set a $20,000 bond for each defendant and ordered that they wear ankle monitors and have weekly contact with their attorneys.
Notwithstanding all of that, it would seem that Judge Sarah Backus has a history of treating dangerous individuals with kid gloves. “Just last month, she set a $10,000 bond for Rafael Orozco, a 24-year-old Taos man accused of battering his girlfriend, his newborn child and a healthcare worker at Holy Cross Hospital in September 2016.”
This time, she really went off the deep end. She flat out denied prosecutors a request to keep the five suspected Islamic radicals locked up indefinitely, even though their actions seem to warrant that action. If they were indeed using the compound to train these children to carry out terroristic attacks at a school, why would you let them out this way? “State prosecutors said there was evidence that some of the suspects could have been planning an attack, adding that lead suspect Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, who faces child abduction charges in Georgia, took weapons classes and books found at the compound described how to build firearms,” Australian station NTD reported. So, we get that news from the Australians first. That’s shameful.
Backus is now saying that she has received tons of death threats over this:
“Backus has received more than 200 threats, according to Barry Massey, a spokesman for New Mexico Courts. Callers have threatened physical violence against Backus, including some people who threatened to slit Backus’ throat and smash her head, Massey said. People also lashed out on social media and also threatened court staff, Massey said.
“Most callers have criticized the judge and the decision and called her names, such as “an Islamic terrorist sympathizer” or “disgusting garbage human,” Massey said.”
They even had to evacuate the courthouse due to supposed threats. That’s insane.
I find it ironic that a leftist judge lets five terrorists out on bail and is shocked that she is getting death threats over it. Don’t get me wrong… no one should ever threaten another like this, but it is hardly surprising. It figures that this judge would make herself out to be the victim here. She lets terrorists go free and becomes a victim of terrorism herself. Now, that’s what I call definitely ironic. It probably never crossed her mind the danger she was putting others in or the fear generated that releasing those plotting against their children in school surely caused in the community. Crime is never real to some people until they experience it firsthand.
Anyone who threatens someone’s life should be held accountable. But a judge that would let those who are obviously plotting harm to others go free should be removed from the bench in my opinion. Those who threatened this judge should face justice, but so should the supposed terrorists she so casually released. They are not only a severe flight risk but a security risk as well.
