Trump Admin Just Quietly Hit Facebook With Major Lawsuit Overnight – It’s A Game Changer!

Published

on

The administration of President Donald Trump has filed a complaint in federal court going after Facebook for what was being listed as violating the Fair Housing Act. This complaint specifically appears to target the advertising module in which advertisers can select from a number of metrics by which to decide who they wish to show ads to. For example, a real estate agent might purchase ads to get leads to sell a home. They might target specifically working class people who live in specific areas, in their particular case, they might need to target people who earn a certain income in hopes to sell a million dollar home. The complaint is that these ads might discriminate against people by not showing it to them, specifically in this example, the person paying for the ad wouldn’t want anyone to see their ad if they’re not living in that area or if they’re not making a certain salary. They’re trying to sell homes to people who meet certain criteria, not waste money on extremely expensive Facebook ads that won’t provide a return on the inventory. This is called ad targeting, not discrimination, however, they filed a suit regardless. This one might not be successful, but it’s way in the door with a big hand waving to social media that they need to get their act together.

It’s a major game changer if the complaint harms those who use Facebook’s advertising program while not providing anything of substance for the users. The biggest lawsuit that should be followed is one that fights censorship.

A very big possible they’ve filed the housing complaint is due to the amount of real censorship and discriminatory practices going on with Facebook themselves. President Trump has called out big tech and social media for their constant and obvious attack on the right-wing and conservative voices. Bloggers, publishers, and readers/fans of right-wing news publications have been unjustly targeted in a very obvious and one-sided attack that has seen people be banned, lose their monetization abilities, and face censorship unfairly in comparison to those on the left wing. Perhaps this is just one of many attacks the Trump administration has planned on the big social media networks who have turned into the thought police.

BizPacReview stated: “Hours before President Donald Trump took to social media Saturday morning to blast Silicon Valley’s tech giants for censoring conservative voices, his administration quietly launched a bombshell suit against one tech giant in particular, Facebook.

In a complaint filed in federal court Friday, the Department of Housing and Urban Development accused Facebook of violating the Fair Housing Act.

“Facebook enables advertisers to control which users receive housing-related ads based upon the recipient’s race, color, religion, sex, familial status, national origin, disability, and/or zip code,” HUD announced in a statement.

“Facebook then invites advertisers to express unlawful preferences by offering discriminatory options, allowing them to effectively limit housing options for these protected classes under the guise of ‘targeted advertising.’”

In others words, if a landlord wants to block his or her housing ads on Facebook from being seen by potential black tenants, he or she may. And according to HUD, this is wrong.

“The Fair Housing Act prohibits housing discrimination including those who might limit or deny housing options with a click of a mouse,” María Farías, HUD’s Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, said.

“When Facebook uses the vast amount of personal data it collects to help advertisers to discriminate, it’s the same as slamming the door in someone’s face.”

This is the same thing Facebook and other social media entities have been doing to conservatives, as noted by the president Saturday.”

President Trump lashed out against social media for censoring right wing and conservative content.

As a blogger myself, I have been a victim of this. I am currently serving a 30-day ban from Facebook just for responding to someone’s comment. Then someone reported the comment, even though there was nothing wrong with the comment, and now I cannot participate on Facebook with friends or family for 30 days. The biggest problem is that Facebook will not read nor allow you to respond and let them know it was a mistake. Each time I try to report it as a mistake, the system shoots back an error stating they can’t process it right now. I have tried for days to report the ban as a mistake, but it does not go through. I have also contacted Facebook on Twitter and they have not responded.

There is an obvious attack by big social media in hopes that people are silenced just for having an opinion. The problem with that is it becomes very heavily one-sided. The way it should be is that everyone has their own voice and no one is censored. Those who end up being fake news will eventually go away on their own as the audience themselves will ignore or reject them. Those who become the most trustworthy will have the biggest and best audience. Social media should let people manage their own content and decide what they like and dislike. What’s happening is that big social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are silencing people for no reason at all.

Let everyone have the same voice and let the people decide for themselves who they like, listen to, read, and watch. I scroll past everything that I don’t like, and I “LIKE” everything that I enjoy. Facebook has already ruined the way Facebook Pages work by removing them from our newsfeed and forcing users to go back to the page and select “see first” under the following button. Everything that I used to see on a daily basis has now vanished and I had to go back and basically tell Facebook “yes, I liked this already, and I like it again.”

Ever since the decline of freedom on social media platforms, there have been several alternative platforms being launched. Gab is an alternative to Twitter. BitChute is an alternative to YouTube, Trending Views is an uncensored social media alternative that has a monetizing program for publishers, and there’s also SteemIT and Minds which appear to be based on cryptocurrency for the coin/token nerds (not everyone understands that stuff). There are valid social media alternatives out there which are doing well and people should give them a try.

There’s no reason that big social media sites should have ever started censoring people unless it was illegal content. They are finally seeing that they’ve gotten power-hungry and out of control and the backlash is real as people have had enough of the censorship and thought police ruining a good time.

After Kavanaugh Accuser’s Latest Demand, Trump Puts An End To The Charade

Published

on

The woman who is accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of an alleged sexual assault from 36 years ago is now saying the FBI should investigate the incident before senators hold a hearing on the allegations.

In a letter sent to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa, and obtained by CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” Christine Blasey Ford’s attorneys is now making the argument that “a full investigation by law enforcement officials will ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner and that the Committee is fully informed before conducting any hearing or making any decisions.”

Here is more on this via CNN:

“Dr. Ford’s testimony would reflect her personal knowledge and memory of events,” Grassley said. “Nothing the FBI or any other investigator does would have any bearing on what Dr. Ford tells the committee, so there is no reason for any further delay.”

A Justice Department spokesperson said the FBI had forwarded the initial letter from Sen. Dianne Feinstein on September 12 to the White House counsel’s office in accordance with guidelines for conducting background checks.

The spokesperson noted that the allegation “does not involve any potential federal crime,” and said if the FBI becomes aware of new information that raises suitability questions about a nominee or appointee, the agency will inform the White House, which is an existing agreement.

According to the spokesperson, the FBI “does not make any judgment about the credibility or significance of any allegation.”

The letter comes after a day of uncertainty about whether the hearing scheduled for Monday would even take place, as Republicans continued to emphasize their repeated efforts to reach out to Ford.
Last week, news surrounding a private letter that had been sent to Feinstein, Democrat of California, raised potential questions about Kavanaugh’s nomination. Feinstein later announced she had given the letter to the FBI. On Sunday, The Washington Post published a story that detailed Ford’s personal account of an incident that Ford said took place when she and Kavanaugh were both in high school.

Ford alleges that while at a party, Kavanaugh pushed her into a bedroom along with his former classmate Mark Judge, and attempted to remove her clothes. She also alleges that Kavanaugh put her hand over her mouth when she attempted to scream. Kavanaugh has denied the incident, and he and Judge both deny being at the party in question.

“This is a completely false allegation. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes — to her or to anyone. Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday,” Kavanaugh said in a statement. “I am willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way the committee deems appropriate to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity.”

The public accusation led Grassley on Monday to announce that the committee would convene next Monday to give both Kavanaugh and Ford the opportunity to publicly testify, as both had indicated a willingness to do so.

But as of Tuesday afternoon, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Republicans had yet to hear from Ford or her lawyer regarding their request for her to testify.

“What we’re saying is there should be an investigation because that’s the right thing to do,” Banks said.

“She is prepared to cooperate with the committee and with any law enforcement investigation,” she added.

Democrats have pushed back on the hearing. All 10 Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee sent a letter on Tuesday to FBI Director Christopher Wray and White House counsel Don McGahn arguing that the FBI should conduct an investigation prior to a hearing.

“The Committee should have the completed report before any hearing occurs and we ask that you take immediate steps to make sure that we have the FBI’s report before we proceed,” the senators wrote.

Feinstein said in a statement she supported Ford’s proposal.

“We should honor Dr. Blasey Ford’s wishes and delay this hearing. A proper investigation must be completed, witnesses interviewed, evidence reviewed and all sides spoken to. Only then should the chairman set a hearing date,” Feinstein said in a news release.

“I hope that each and every one of us will immediately denounce the horrific treatment of Dr. Blasey Ford. That this brave woman is receiving death threats and has been forced to flee with her family is appalling and heartbreaking. This abuse must stop. We’re better than this.”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, also supported Ford’s proposal.

“Dr. Ford’s call for the FBI to investigate also demonstrates her confidence that when all the facts are examined by an impartial investigation, her account will be further corroborated and confirmed,” Schumer said in a statement. “Senate Republicans and the White House should drop their inexplicable opposition to an FBI investigation, allow all the facts to come out, and then proceed with a fair process in the Senate. Dr. Ford’s life has already been badly disrupted by death threats and other intimidation. She deserves to be treated with respect and fairness by the Senate.”

However, Sen. Orrin Hatch, a Utah Republican, countered Ford’s proposal on Twitter Tuesday night, arguing, “The FBI does not do investigations like this.”

The letter goes on trying to make the argument that although she has received a “stunning amount” of support from her community she has also been the target of death threats and has been forced to vacate her home because of this.

But now The Right Scoop is reporting that President Trump has had enough of this left wing partisan charade.

The President made it very clear he thinks that all this proves is that Ford doesn’t want to testify. She knows the FBI has passed on it since it isn’t even in their jurisdiction and any investigation isn’t going to happen anytime soon. He added that he feels this is all a way for her to try and save face without this going any further.

Trump ended his statement by adding, “So let’s just cancel everything and vote already. This farce has gone long enough.”

The left is now trying to involve their Obama weaponized FBI in a case that they have to jurisdiction over. Whatever alleged happened 36 years ago wasn’t a federal crime, and no reason to involve the FBI. The President is right, all this is is just a way to have an excuse to not testify because nothing ever happened and she wants to save face. Too late Ford!

Trump Announces His ‘Crowning Achievement,’ Sets FBI Swamp On Fire

Published

on

...

* By

As the sheer depths of corruption contained within the ranks of the FBI continues to be revealed, President Donald Trump stated in a recent interview that he believes that transparency is necessary to reveal to the American people that the Russia collusion case is based on a hoax. By ordering the release of classified documents, President Trump plans to expose this significant corruption for all to see in what could become one of the “crowning achievements” of his presidency.

In a 45-minute interview with Hill.TV, President Trump answered a series of wide-ranging questions from the Oval Office, stating – “What we’ve done is a great service to the country, really. I hope to be able to call this, along with tax cuts and regulation and all the things I’ve done … in it is own way this might be the most important thing because this was corrupt.”

He also expressed his regret that he did not fire former FBI Director James Comey immediately upon ascending the presidency in January 2017, instead of waiting until May 2017.

This is a confirmation of the account given earlier the same day by Trump attorney, Rudy Giuliani, stating President Trump was highly dismayed in 2016 in regards to the way Comey chose to handle the investigation into the Hillary Clinton email investigation. As a result of that, discussions on firing Comey began well prior to President Trump moving into the Oval Office.

President Trump states – “If I did one mistake with Comey, I should have fired him before I got here. I should have fired him the day I won the primaries. I should have fired him right after the convention, say I don’t want that guy. Or at least fired him the first day on the job. … I would have been better off firing him or putting out a statement that I don’t want him there when I get there.”

The Hill reports of the exclusive interview with Hill.TV – “Trump has offered different reasons in the past for his firing of the FBI chief, blaming Comey’s handling of the Clinton case but also linking it to Comey’s actions in the Russia investigation.

The president also called into question the FBI’s handling of the Russia investigation, again criticizing it for surveilling his campaign.

He criticizing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court’s approval of the warrant that authorized surveillance of Carter Page, a low-level Trump campaign aide, toward the end of the 2016 presidential race, suggesting the FBI misled the court.

“They know this is one of the great scandals in the history of our country because basically what they did is, they used Carter Page, who nobody even knew, who I feel very badly for, I think he’s been treated very badly. They used Carter Page as a foil in order to surveil a candidate for the presidency of the United States.”

As for the judges on the secret intelligence court: “It looks to me, just based on your reporting, that they have been misled,” the president said, citing a series of columns in The Hill identifying shortcomings in the FBI investigation. “I mean I don’t think we have to go much further than to say that they’ve been misled.”

“One of the things I’m disappointed in is that the judges in FISA didn’t, don’t seem to have done anything about it. I’m very disappointed in that Now, I may be wrong because, maybe as we sit here and talk, maybe they’re well into it. We just don’t know that because I purposely have not chosen to get involved,” Trump said.

The president spared no words in criticizing Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, lawyer Lisa Page and other FBI officials who started the probe. He recited specific text messages Page and Strzok traded while having an affair and investigating his campaign, arguing the texts showed they condoned leaks and conducted a bogus probe.

Those texts are to be released as a result of Trump’s announcement on Monday.”

President Trump cited a text from a conversation between Strzok and Page in which the two discuss obtaining McCabe’s approval to expand the Russian collusion investigation right after Comey was fired, stating – “It’s a hoax, beyond a witch hunt. Comey was a bad guy. He gets fired. They only have Andy left because they know they’re doing wrong,” as he described the depths of corruption that are readily apparent to anyone looking.

The FBI repeatedly leaked information to mainstream media outlets in an effort to create a false narrative against him in an effort to destroy his presidency if he won as a sort of “insurance policy,” stating – “Number one, how illegal is it? And number two, how low is it?”

He added – “What we have now is an insurance policy. But it has been totally discredited, even Democrats agree that it has been discredited. They are not going to admit to it, but it has been totally discredited. I think, frankly, more so by text than by documents.”

When asked what he hoped to accomplish by declassifying these documents, President Trump responded with – “All I want to do is be transparent. I hope to be able put this up as one of my crowning achievements that I was able to … expose something that is truly a cancer in our country.”
