A California judge ruled that Twitter can be sued for advertising free speech and then banning users with whom they disagree. Twitter has frequently promised not to ban accounts on the basis of viewpoint or political affiliation, but it has frequently violated this promise, especially targeting conservatives. Twitter lost its argument that it has a first amendment right to ban whoever it likes from its platform, for whatever reason, and the case will move forward to set a precedent for social media.
A California judge has ruled that Twitter’s policy of banning users “at any time, for any reason or for no reason” may constitute an “unconscionable contract”, and that a lawsuit against the company brought by self-described “white advocate” Jared Taylor may proceed on that basis.
The judge rejected Twitter’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit from Taylor, who was banned by the platform in December last year.
In particular, Twitter’s argument that it has a first amendment right to ban whoever it likes from its platform, for whatever reason was rejected.
The judge ruled that Twitter’s belief that it had a right to ban users “at any time, for any reason, or no reason” could be a legally unconscionable policy on the company’s part.
The judge also ruled that Twitter could be sued on the basis of misleading its users, due to the platform’s promise – frequently expressed, frequently violated – not to ban accounts on the basis of viewpoint or political affiliation.
“This ruling has massive implications for the platform going forward,” said Noah Peters, Jared Taylor’s lawyer. “this is the first time that a social media company’s argument that it can censor user speech has been rejected by a court.”
Taylor describes himself as a “race realist” and has in defended white separatism, claiming that races are “not equal”, but his attorney says this trial is not about his client’s particular views.
“Our lawsuit is not about whether Taylor is right or wrong,” Peters said in February. “It’s about whether Twitter and other technology companies have the right to ban individuals from using their services based on their perceived viewpoints and affiliations.”
Robert Mueller suggested to Congress that they have a potential obstruction case, which creates an opening for Congress to Impeach the President anyway. The burden may now be on the President to prove he is innocent.

According to a poll recorded in 2016, a stunning 67% of Republican voters thought mass immigration was a critical threat, but only 16% of GOP leaders agreed that it was a serious problem.

The health department has not disclosed the number of people who contracted measles post-vaccination. One doctor cited in the lawsuit argues the current Brooklyn measles cases are not “a clear and present danger to the public health” sufficient to require a mandatory vaccine order.
Instead of releasing asylum sekers, the Department of Homeland Security will have the authority to detain them indefinitely. The effect is expected to discourage new migrants because they will not be able to work and send money to their country of origin if they are imprisoned.
President Trump rejected a resolution from Congress to end US military support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen. Congress has the legal ability to compel the removal of US military forces, absent a formal declaration of war.

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about. These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)

The criteria for Youtube censorship includes “controversial religious or supremacist content”, and “controversial and inflammatory content”, which is totally subjective. Youtube makes the call, and they are biased and political. The Southern Poverty Law Center, an extremist group known for inciting hatred and division, acts as a trusted flagger of video content. Republicans defend Google against anti-trust issues because Google funds campaigns, the media and NGOs.
YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki is planning to add a Wikipedia information box to every video that is focused around what YouTube considers to be a conspiracy theory. The goal is to counter the information with ‘reliable’ information. Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia, and his army of liberal colleagues, will determine what is truth and they will label anything that strays from the approved narrative as fake or a conspiracy theory.
