Trump Finally Makes His Move Against Big Tech

    In the Trump administration the attorneys general from several states are preparing a major antitrust lawsuit against several Big Tech companies. That’s why you suddenly saw many news stories over the weekend that Trump is attacking these companies “without evidence.”

    Meanwhile, the Never Trump, gimp suit-wearing official conservatives of official conservatism are lining up to talk about how you should never, ever fight back against your enemies, but instead lose gracefully to them. Here’s everything we know so far.

    First, Google/YouTube is toast. US Attorney General Bill Barr, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and several other unnamed states are prepping a monopoly antitrust suit against Google. Their accusation is that Google stifles competition in the online advertising space and abuses its overall search dominance to crush smaller companies. Facebook is also directly in the crosshairs of the Justice Department, for pretty much the same reasons.

    Meanwhile, the media is claiming there is “no evidence” to back up the claims that President Trump is making against Big Tech. This is hilarious.

    Trump retweeted a Michelle Malkin video over the weekend with this message:

    “The Radical Left is in total command & control of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter & Google. The Administration is working to remedy this illegal situation. Stay tuned, and send names & events. Thank you Michelle!”

    Immediately after Trump sent that tweet, Twitter deleted Malkin’s video from the site and kicked her off the platform entirely. Which I guess proves the media’s point that Trump has “no evidence” of liberal bias on Big Tech sites. There are no conservatives complaining about conservative censorship on Twitter! See! Evidence!

    kinda normal with them (and most of the other online chat thingy's)...

    they ban someone then SEEM to change their mind shortly after...

    seems more like what they're after is a specific politically incorrect post...

    thinkin the idea is not to actually ban someone but more to shut down a specific post... for a time???


    so... not surprised... been watchin em do this for some time... facebook does similar stuff...
