On Tuesday, Uganda punched back at Facebook and Twitter by banning them from the internet after the two companies started censoring Uganda officials ahead of the election in the country. "We demand that @Facebook & @Twitter write directly to the individuals that lost their accounts. Since @Facebook cited @MoICT_Ug in their statement, let them write to us so that there’s a chance for a fair hearing. Accounts lost on Facebook belong to @GovUganda employees," tweeted Uganda Media Centre. Check out what Reuters reported: In a letter seen by Reuters to internet service providers dated Jan. 12, Uganda’s communications regulator ordered them to block all social media platforms and messaging apps

That's what we really need. We need more countries that admire the USA and Trump push back at these tyrants. If they can do it to us they certainly can do it to them. Talk about meddling and collusion.

As we used to say in NYC, 'wadda you know!' Not overly fond of Uganda, but I am impressed that they tell Dorsey and Zuckerberg where to go! It will take a little while but others will build their own platforms now and these little dictator guys should go where Fox is going!

Nemesis is raging like a loosed Kraken! Big Tech begins building their authoritarian power using the Capitol incident as righteous justification for arrogantly canceling thousands of innocent people's free speech. Within a few days, they overreach and extend their censorship to uninvolved countries, effectively eclipsing their righteous clams of protecting people from Trump and refocusing attention on their egregious, naked lust for the power to control human civilization.

Embarrassing to think Uganda's government has more moxie than ours in this matter. It appears they will not allow Zuckerberg, et al, to meddle in Uganda's upcoming election. I bet they're not using Dominion machines to record the vote, either. Meanwhile, our gutless state and federal electeds cower...or supplicate for bux.

Uganda is a very beautiful country, and it has the first saints in Africa. When I was in Kampala I went to noon Mass on a weekday and the Church was already filling up with people who came early for the Rosary. In the end as I recall they had to broadcast the homily outdoors. I went for a weekend in a national park by myself and I was cherished by staff and had a wonderful time. They served Merryland chicken and I thought it was a good name.

I'm feeling a bit better today that I was yesterday. I don't know if this government in Uganda is worth praising or not. Might just be a bunch of despots. But after today, I get the impression that the left has moved a bit too fast and just might be in for a train wreck. President Trump has been awfully quiet. Granted, his tech options are few, but this is usually a good sign.

Uganda knows that if they can censor the leader of the free world with impunity, what will they do to the rest of the world? Merkel was right to condemn Twitter. All nations that have internet and allow social media need to start tightening the screws on them. If just for their own protection and self survival.

The serial explosions on the Big Tech Death Star are just starting. Poland had just passed a law with massive fines if any social media ban their citizens for posts that are lawful in their country. Australia had just announced they are looking at a similar policy. Memo to Congress and the Supreme Court: why do the citizens of Uganda, Poland, and Australia have more protections for freedom of speech than the citizens of the United States?!

Ron DeSantis Shows Why He's a Boss 20 replies
Posted by ladydawgfan 1/13/2021 3:53:52 AM Post Reply
I’ll give the requisite warning that there will be at least some level of Ron DeSantis fanboying contained in this article. With that out of the way, DeSantis once again today showed why he’s cut from a different piece of cloth that most other Republican politicians, especially those that reside within the beltway in D.C. With big tech cracking down on internet speech, specifically conservative viewpoints, it’s far past time for the GOP to fight back in ways they can. While there’s little that can be done at the national level now because Trump and the Republican Senate squandered those opportunities the last four years, there’s plenty that can happen downstream.

Their rush to punish could become their own undoing. In the climate change fiasco of a film ‘’The Day After Tomorrow’’ we are presented with a number of ridiculous premises. One, in particular, came to mind this weekend with the oppressive acts we saw emanating from Silicon Valley. In a later scene a weather system descends on New York, delivering a massive drop in temperature in a matter of seconds, so frigid that it manages to freeze a helicopter in mid-air. Jake Gyllenhaal’s character sees this frosty threat and runs to get back to a safe room where there is a fireplace burning, racing through hallways that become encrusted with ice.

Earlier, we wrote how far left Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) had been diagnosed with the Wuhan coronavirus. Jayapal blamed Republicans, claiming that a bunch of the Congress was locked up together during the Capitol protest and some of the Republicans didn’t wear masks. But as my colleague Sister Toldjah observed, Jayapal herself wasn’t wearing a mask when she was caught on video in close quarters with other people on video including Rep. Lisa Blount Rochester (D-DE) who was also not wearing a mask.

The list is getting longer of corporations cutting ties with President Donald Trump and his friends and allies because of the January 6th incursion of the US Capitol Building. A huge Save America rally supporting the president was held at the Ellipse. The four hour long rally with multiple speakers culminated with the president’s more than hour long speech and a planned march to the U.S. Capitol Building for an apparent rally there. Inside, the Congress was discussing the results of the Electoral College vote. Allies of the president attempted to forestall the certification of the election

Well, so much for that whole unity thing. Democrats are out for blood, emboldened by the idiotic alt-right fools who rushed the Capitol last week, and they are seemingly going to play every card they have. Impeachment is already being talked about, perhaps even after Biden’s inauguration, in order to ban Trump from every holding office again. But if that wasn’t dumb enough, Nancy Pelosi is now looking at the 14th Amendment as a way to expel Republican members of the House for supposedly taking part in an “insurrection.”

Democrats now have single-party control of the federal government. President Joe Biden styled himself as the most moderate candidate his party had to offer. And still, during the campaign he promised to put Beto O’Rourke – the man who blurted out “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15s” in charge of his administration’s gun policies. Whether or not President Biden and gun czar Beto aim for a program of national gun confiscation, we should expect some sort of major crackdown against the Second Amendment and against our other liberties.

I’m not sure which is my favorite aspect of this disgraceful and dangerous festival of bans, gagging, and silencing that the Establishment embarked upon last week after it finally discovered one kind of riot it didn’t approve of. Maybe it was the journalists cheering censorship. Maybe it was True Conservatives™ like that geek from National Review giving censorship a soft, girlish thumbs-up – perhaps if the libs shut down the competition then people will sign up for NR’s cruises again.

A new fauxrage has been instigated by the Left following word that Ginni Thomas, a well-known conservative and wife of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, supported Turning Point USA, which bused in Trump supporters to the “Save America Rally” last Wednesday on The Ellipse in Washington, D.C. As everyone knows, after the rally was over, some attendees turned into rioters and breached the U.S. Capitol Building, causing so-far un-tallied damage and chaos. When it was over, Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick had died. It is believed that the Capitol Police officer died from a head injury, possibly from a thrown fire extinguisher. Four protesters died during the siege.

President Trump was impeached a second time by the US House of Representatives on Wednesday in a largely party-line vote that saw a handful of Republicans join Democrats to blame the outgoing commander-in-chief for sparking last week’s Capitol siege. The measure reached 217 “yea” votes shortly after 4:20 p.m. to make Trump the only president to be impeached twice. The final vote was 232-197, with 10 Republicans crossing party lines and four Republicans not voting when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) announced around 4:35 p.m. No members of the GOP voted in 2019 to impeach Trump the first time.

While hitting seven-o is a big birthday for anyone, Limbaugh said almost a year ago that he had been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. Shortly before Christmas, an emotional Limbaugh said he was grateful to be outliving his doctors’ prognosis. “I wasn’t expected to make it to October and then to November and then to December and yet here I am,” Limbaugh told listeners.
