REPORT: 40 States Will File Antitrust Lawsuit Against Facebook – LONG, LONG OVERDUE! By Adina Kutnicki

WELL, from this clued-in perch re Facebook’s voluminous overreach and illegal machinations  —with knock-on effects to national security concerns, as well as a multitude of freedom-based violations, compiled with economic strangulation — it is LONG, LONG overdue that a preponderance of states are filling antitrust suits.  Better late than never! Incontestably, for countless and sundry reasons, this arrogant, censoring behemoth (alongside the rest of the insidiously lock-step tech giants/overlords) must be cut down to size — with nothing left standing, aside from this and that paltry crumb, if even that.

BUT if that seems overly harsh, no matter. As it happens, having written (with co-author Joe Newby) the only book critical of the many (hidden and not so hidden) dangers emanating from Facebook, the position taken within is hardly borne of ignorance or smack-talk, so to speak.

IN fact, within CHAPTER EIGHT (LEGAL OBSTACLES AND POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS) of the aforementioned book (published Sept. 1, 2016), an overwhelming and overarching case has been laid out for Congress — sorta like a blueprint for its knock-down and roll-up — to urgently remove the protective shield via Section 230, alongside a piggyback effort ala the well established vehicle housed under antitrust laws.

NOT only that, within the very same well-documented book, its CONCLUSION could not be any clearer. Starker. To wit, its very last sentences summarize and encapsulate the above:

……“The alternative is far too horrible to imagine, as Facebook now seeks to essentially control the Internet. If you think things are bad now, just wait five or ten years. Shiver the west’s timbers.”

AGAIN, the aforementioned warning was written a little over 4 years ago. Alas, if anything, the full-on scope of the dangers emanating from Facebook and attendant social media/tech giants have reached critical mass — a mere half year prior to the front-line of the assessed time-frame!

BUT let’s not quibble…..

Department of Justice Sues Facebook for Discrimination Against Americans in Favor of H1B Visa Workers

BREITBART | By Lucas Nolan | December 3, 2020

A recent report claims that a group of at least 40 states led by New York is set to file an antitrust lawsuit against Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook as early as next week.

The lawsuit would be the second major case taken against a major tech firm this year following the Justice Department’s lawsuit against Google in October. Over 40 states reportedly plan to sign on to the Facebook lawsuit one source said, but would not provide the list of states.

Breitbart News reported earlier this week that authorities were preparing as many as four more cases targeting Google or Facebook by the end of January 2021. The lawsuits reportedly focus on whether the tech giant abused their power in the internet economy, focusing on Google’s position in the search and advertising industry and Facebook’s dominance in the social media market.

Both companies have denied using their power in an anti-competitive manner, saying that they operate in extremely competitive markets and that their services benefit consumers. Despite ongoing antitrust investigations and lawsuits, Facebook and Google are both on a spending spree to buy rivals and tech startups.

Facebook has faced criticism from both Republicans and Democrats in Congress, as well as President Trump and Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden. Democrats allege that the social media giant has been too free in the speech it allows on its platform, while many Republicans point out the social media site has often suppressed conservative voices. Facebook claims that it aims to support free speech while limiting “hate speech” and harmful content.

recent report from CNBC states that sources believe that a lawsuit could be filed against social media giant Facebook as early as next week. A group of 40 states led by New York have been investigating Facebook for possible antitrust violations and plans to file a lawsuit against the company, according to four sources.

The lawsuit would be the second major case taken against a major tech firm this year following the Justice Department’s lawsuit against Google in October. Over 40 states reportedly plan to sign on to the Facebook lawsuit one source said, but would not provide the list of states.

{ADDENDUM: Bear uppermost in mind — To stifle the truth-telling found at this site, FB’s censors have “zeroed-out” all of my articles via their “Boom and Ban” censors ala their ubiquitous “Community Standards” — as they hunt me up and down the internet like rabid dogs to their prey! No kidding. This is just some of FB’s modus operandi, what is now deemed their “love notes” to yours truly:This URL goes against our Community Standards on spam:adinakutnicki.files.wordpress.com

No one else can see your post.And so on and so forth. In fact, just recently, each article at my “parent site”, ADINA KUTNICKI: A ZIONIST & CONSERVATIVE BLOG, had its FB registered shares go from the hundreds, with some up to the many thousands, to a big, fat ZERO. In other words, all my shares have gone down the rabbit hole. Just like that. Poof. Gone. As such, take it to the bank that each and every conservative voice which reaches a wide readership will, sooner than later, be CENSORED. MUTED.MESSAGE FAILED:
