    Nancy Pelosi wants politicians to have the power to decide what people post on social media

    The social media age hasn't been all rainbows and unicorns. The spread of fake news and misinformation on platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube is a real concern for many Americans, especially those who feel that their views are targeted by west coast elites.

    But Nancy Pelosi's plan would make a bad situation even worse.

    As Reason.com's Nick Gillespie explained in a recent op-ed, her plan would turn the internet from a creative realm with both good and bad into yet another aspect of American life controlled by Washington.

    We've all been watching this develop for years now: The internet is being slow-choked, not by rapacious ISPs forcing users to pay for "fast lanes," but by politicians on both sides of the Atlantic who want to have a bigger role in what we're allowed to do and say online. To be sure, lawmakers are being greatly aided in their efforts by major tech players such as Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Apple's Tim Cook, who are explicitly calling for regulation to maintain current market positions in a sector defined by creative destruction (all hail MySpace and Blackberry!).

    In an interview with Recode's Kara Swisher, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D–Calif.) pronounced that in the tech sector, the "era of self-regulation" is over when it comes to privacy and speech rules. Sounding a lot like conservative Republicans such as Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Josh Hawley of Missouri, she zeroes in especially on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act as the thing that needs to be torched.

    As the title of a new book puts it, Section 230 comprises "the twenty-six words that created the internet." Author Jeff Kosseff explains that by immunizing websites, platforms, and service providers from "lawsuits over materials that their users upload," Section 230 "fundamentally changed American life." Indeed, the internet as we know it is based on both "content created not only by large companies, but by users," writes Kosseff, who observes that of the top 10 most-trafficked websites in the United States in 2018, only Netflix "mostly provides its own content." All the rest—Facebook, Wikipedia, YouTube, Twitter, et al.—either rely heavily on user-generated content (including potentially actionable reviews and comments about everything under the sun) or exist to guide users to such content (Google, Yahoo).

    Pelosi is done with all that, telling Swisher that the freedom of expression empowered by Section 230 is "a gift" and a "privilege" that can be rescinded if major tech companies don't move in the direction she and other politicians want.

    Power grabs by federal politicians take many forms and come from both sides of the aisle. Fortunately, there is a way to fight back: an Article V Convention of States.

    A Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to limit the scope and jurisdiction of the federal government. Some regulation is necessary, but our "leaders" in D.C. seem to think that they have authority over everything in our lives -- from healthcare to car emissions to the internet.

    That's why millions have joined the fight to limit DC's power via constitutional amendment. A Convention of States can propose these amendments and, once ratified by 38 states, they can shrink DC's authority, force them to be fiscally responsible, and end the plague of career politicians.

    My thoughts:

    One day the democrats will realize that real Americans don't give a rats ass about their socialist agenda, we are a tolerant and peaceful bunch but keep poking us and all hell will break out!

    Rep. Ilhan Omar Calls on the U.N. to Take Control of U.S. Border and Keep It Open

    Ilhan Omar is reportedly having an affair with a married man and illegally filling his pockets with campaign cash.

    But in a speech on Wednesday Ilhan Omar then had the gall to accuse America of losing “its moral high ground.”

    She may want to check herself first.

    Today, Omar discussed the massive influx of illegals flooding the U.S. border.

    And, as usual, Omar showed her chilling hatred of the country that rescued her family from its Somali hell-hole.

    Ilhan Omar actually called on the United Nations to take control of the U.S. Southern border during a talk on immigration in south Minneapolis Wednesday.

    Ilhan wants an unimpeded river of third world illegal migrants to cross into America.

    Ilhan Omar told the crowd:

    “We should do what any other country does by dealing with this situation in a serious way. So, we have to bring in the United Nations high commissioner on refugees, an agency that has the expertise and the training to handle massive flows of refugees humanely.”

    The very reason for second amendment.

    Right straight from his own mouth. How much more evidence would you need to realize Biden was bribing the President of Ukraine to fire the AG of Ukraine that was looking into his son's illegal activities or else Ukraine wouldn’t receive the $1 Billion in US aid.

    Isn’t it something that all of these witnesses so far in the impeachment hearing that said they had concerns about President Trump’s phone call with the President of Ukraine NEVER once voiced any of their so called concerns to their direct supervisor in their chain of command, until now when they are under testimony.

    My question is, if it wasn’t any concern to them then, then how can it be a concern to them now.

    Pelosi- "It's too dangerous to let the voters decide the next presidential election." Hear that? She thinks we are dangerous.
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is what tyranny looks like.

    It was disclosed today that Vindman was offered three times by the Ukraine President to take the job of the Ukraine Defense Director, now that’s something to think about, which side that he’s really thinking about.

    Do I rag on Trump or do I disclose the problems that are occurring in Ukraine and flush any chance I could have to obtain that position in Ukraine.

    Makes you think doesn’t it.

    Pelosi, we have to pass Obamacare in order to find out what's in it.

    Also Pelosi, we have to impeach the president in order to find out why we're impeaching the president...

    War Heroes Bash Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman: ‘Operative,’ ‘Disgrace’

    War heroes slammed Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a National Security Council official who testified Tuesday in the impeachment inquiry’s third public hearing.
    Vindman, who served as director of Eurasia at the NSC, testified that after listening to the July 25 phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenksy, he went to the NSC lawyer to report his concerns about the call.

    Specifically, Vindman testified that he thought it was wrong that Trump brought up investigations into allegations of whether Ukraine interfered in the 2016 elections as well as allegations surrounding Hunter Biden’s seat on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company whose executive was being investigated for corruption.

    Vindman testified that he did not have concerns whether it was illegal or a crime, but said he found it morally wrong. He also testified that he advised the Ukrainians not to get involved in U.S. domestic politics.

    Vindman’s testimony rubbed some military veterans the wrong way, including prominent war heroes.

    Mark Geist, a Marine who fought off terrorists during the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack on the U.S. annex in Libya, tweeted:

    Vindman is a disgrace to all who have served. Transcript of his previous closed door testimony he clearly admits to undermining the @POTUS foreign policy and now he has chairman Schiff advising him on how to answer questions.

    Rob O’Neill, the Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden, also criticized Vindman as an “operative.”

    “I agree. I wish the left wouldn’t use his uniform to make him a saint. He’s an operative with an agenda,” he said in response to a tweet by the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr.

    Trump Jr. tweeted: “Anyone listening to Vindman stammer through this seemingly trying to remember the Catch Phrases he was well coached on should get that. He’s a low level partisan bureaucrat and nothing more.”

    Jonathan T. Gilliam, another well-known Navy SEAL tweeted:

    “This guy reeks of spy! #Vindman should be added to the list of deep staters that should be charged with conspiracy to overthrow”:

    And Tim Kennedy, a mixed martial arts fighter and current National Guard member tweeted: “Correcting a civilian about how to be a addressed is a for sure way to make everyone in the military think you are a douche bag.”

    It's been reported that a high number of his CO's have reprimanded him for unethical actions during his career.

    Study: 2020 Dem Tax Hikes Could Eliminate 413,000 Jobs

    The tax hikes endorsed by many Democratic presidential candidates will eliminate up to 413,000 jobs, according to a new analysis.

    Former vice president Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), and other 2020 Democratic hopefuls have pledged to reverse President Donald Trump's 2017 tax cuts and hike corporate tax rates to as high as 35 percent to fund expensive government programs. Such policies will discourage corporate investment, thereby limiting growth in wages, employment, and productivity, according to an analysis from the Tax Foundation.

    "The corporate income tax is the most harmful tax to economic growth, so it shouldn't be seen as a good option for funding various policy proposals," Erica York, the economist who compiled the study, told the Washington Free Beacon.

    The 2017 tax cuts reduced corporate tax rates from 35 to 21 percent, helping spur a modest economic uptick. That policy has been a top target for Democrats seeking to run against Trump in 2020. Biden has suggested raising corporate tax rates to 28 percent, while Warren, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), and South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg have advocated for returning the tax rate to 35 percent.

    All of those proposals would eliminate jobs and hurt the broader economy, according to the study.

    Biden's corporate tax plan will cut the GDP by 1 percent and shave off 187,000 jobs from the U.S. economy. Meanwhile, the tax plan backed by Warren, Sanders, and Buttigieg would leave 413,000 people without work.

    The Tax Foundation analysis studies the negative economic effect of corporate tax hikes in isolation from how the additional government spending fueled by the higher tax revenue may affect the economy. York said that returning to pre-2017 tax levels will restore corporate tax burdens to exceptionally high levels compared with other advanced industrial countries.

    "When we had a 35 percent rate, we were an outlier amongst most of our competitors," she said. "We had one of the highest corporate tax rates in the industrialized world. Lowering it made us more competitive, raising it back up would be a step in the wrong direction."

    Democratic hopefuls have characterized the 2017 tax reform as a handout to the rich, despite the fact that four in five American taxpayers have received smaller tax bills since it passed. Warren has gone even further and called for an additional 7 percent tax on every dollar of profit above $100 million.

    York said such hikes would reverberate through the wider economy, because increasing corporate taxes would leave corporations less inclined to invest in the workforce or in future development.

    "Higher corporate income tax rates will mean some investments that would have been worthwhile under the old tax codes will no longer be worthwhile under the higher tax rate," York said.

    And they're so proud of themselves.
