INTRODUCTION BY ADINA KUTNICKIFull Disclosure: Back in September 2016 (how time flies!), this writer’s book (co-authored with Joe NewbyBANNED: How Facebook Enables Militant Islamic Jihad debuted. It was not for nothing.

In fact, this undertaking was not only laborious, a Herculean effort, if you will, but a mandatory clarion call from its freedom-loving authors. Effectively, BANNED explains how social media in general and Facebook in particular operates with a double standard that ultimately enables Islamists, a.k.a. greens, and socialists/Marxists/communists, a.k.a. reds.

It is to this end that 47 U.S. Code § 230 comes into sharp relief; both at BANNED and as the target of Trump’s blessed executive order, albeit long overdue! Mind you, it took close to 4 years — since the aforementioned book zeroed in on the acute dangers from Silicon Valley’s tech titans, censors — for President Trump to jump on board. But, to be fair, he has had his hands full with the likes of a shadow government serving as deep state operatives to overturn his presidency.

More specifically, Chapter Nine of BANNED, “Possible Political Solutions And Obstacles“, attests to the thesis at hand by targeting legislative action, primarily, through monopoly busting via updated antitrust laws, as well as by amending the (no longer viable) Communications Decency Act of 1996, 47 U.S.C. Section 230.  To wit….]

U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to order a review of a law that has long protected Twitter, Facebook and Alphabet’s Google from being responsible for the material posted by their users, according to a draft executive order and a source familiar with the situation.

News of the order comes after Trump threatened to shut down websites he accused of stifling conservative voices following a dispute with Twitter after the company decided to tag Trump’s tweets about unsubstantiated claims of fraud in mail-in voting with a warning prompting readers to fact-check the posts.

The order, a draft copy of which was seen by Reuters, could change before it is finalized. On Wednesday, officials said Trump will sign an executive order on social media companies on Thursday.

The executive order would require the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to propose and clarify regulations under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, a federal law largely exempting online platforms from legal liability for the material their users post. Such changes could expose tech companies to more lawsuits.

FACEBOOK’S MARK ZUCKERBERG: GOVERNMENT CENSORSHIP OF SOCIAL MEDIA ‘NOT THE RIGHT REFLEX’

The order asks the FCC to examine whether actions related to the editing of content by social media companies should potentially lead to the platform forfeiting its protections under section 230.

It requires the agency to look at whether a social media platform uses deceptive policies to moderate content and if its policies are inconsistent with its terms of service.

The draft order also states that the White House Office of Digital Strategy will re-establish a tool to help citizens report cases of online censorship.

Called the White House Tech Bias Reporting Tool, it will collect complaints of online censorship and submit them to the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

It requires the FTC to then “consider taking action”, look into whether complaints violate the law, develop a report describing such complaints and make the report publicly available.

The draft order also requires the Attorney General to establish a working group including state attorneys general that will examine the enforcement of state laws that prohibit online platforms from engaging in unfair and deceptive acts.

The working group will also monitor or create watch-lists of users based on their interactions with content or other users.

Federal spending on online advertising will also be reviewed by U.S. government agencies to ensure there are no speech restrictions by the relevant platform.

It requires the head of each agency to report its findings to the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, within 30 days of the date of this order.

Introducing, Twitter’s sick and twisted chief “fact-checker”……

As such, is it any wonder that the following tweet (among countless others) passed muster with the censors at Twitter, yet, President Trump (again, among countless others) requires “tags about unsubstantiated claims of fraud in mail-in voting with a warning prompting readers to fact-check the posts” which disagree with the most powerful censors on the planet; Silicon Valley’s overlords!!

Alas, the following explanatory video not only hits the target but completely serves as a piggyback clarion call to BANNED — even though unknowingly!
