Twitter, Facebook: $51 Billion Combined
Market Value Erased Since Trump Ban

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 1/14/2021 1:37:11 PM

Social media giants Facebook and Twitter have collectively seen $51.2 billion in combined market value wiped out over the last two trading sessions since they banned President Donald Trump from their platforms following the U.S. Capitol breach. Large tech firms and a number of Democratic political figures have claimed Trump incited violence at the U.S. Capitol last week. (Snip) Trump took to Twitter following the outbreak of violence to call on protesters to “go home in peace.” He denounced the violence as a “heinous attack” that “defiled the seat of American democracy” on Jan. 7. It is unclear who instigated the breach of the building.

Comments:

It has now been reported that the rioters who disrupted the peaceful march on the 6th organized on Facebook.

This drop has absolutely no impact on any of the CEOs or executives. They are all so filthy stinking rich. Until stock holders finally demonstrate some spine and states divest themselves from these sanctimonious totalitarians their lives will remain unaffected.

It would seem, based on the coordinated attack to implement the Big Tech plan against President Trump, and other conservative platforms on their sites, it was planned. I would think the SEC would want to investigate, particularly anyone who shorted those stocks due to the advanced knowledge. It also seems they made material changes without notifying the public, which has now affected many stockholders, pension funds, 401-k's, etc... Class-action lawsuits should be coming as a result. The best way people can affect many of those sites is to keep them, but don't comment, click or do hardly anything on FB or Twitter. They need to maintain the account (expense) but don't get the revenue, and it will start to affect their algorithms.

UK prime minister Boris Johnson is not a conservative but, he is a blithering idiot. He has just confirmed this by insisting that there is ‘nothing wrong’ with being woke. True, it was a floundering response to a tricksy question about President Joe Biden asked by a journalist from the left-wing TV channel Sky News. But to appreciate what a spineless, craven, ideological pigmy Johnson is you only have to consider how Margaret Thatcher would have answered the same question. Margaret Thatcher would have said, in no uncertain terms, that there is EVERYTHING wrong with being woke.

Biden Kills Up to 70,000 Jobs on First
Day in Office

President Joe Biden’s first day in office may have been historic in more ways than one: he may have set a single-day record for the number of jobs killed by an American president. Biden revoked the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline, as promised. In so doing, he killed some 11,000 direct jobs that the pipeline’s construction was to have created, and an estimated 60,000 indirect jobs in secondary, related industries. Over 1,000 workers already on the job — mostly union workers — will be laid off as a result of the decision, even if it is litigated, as many expect it will be, in the courts.

It's safe to say that no president's wife has been treated more disrespectfully and disgracefully than Melania Trump, who exited the White House on Wednesday after four tumultuous years. Throughout history, several first ladies – notably, Rachel Jackson, Mary Todd Lincoln, Edith Wilson, Eleanor Roosevelt and Nancy Reagan – were attacked or criticized on personal or political grounds, sometimes viciously so by their husbands' political foes. Yet, in more recent times, the general rule became that first ladies were basically untouchable unless they were working for the administration in an official role, as was the case with Hillary Clinton when she chaired President Clinton's health care task force in 1993.

The Biden administration is off to a shaky start with the Republican-led State of Texas. Yesterday as President Biden stopped to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton wished the country well and included a warning. In a tweet, Paxton promised to see the Biden administration in court… frequently. Paxton is upholding a Texas tradition. The current governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, was Texas Attorney General during the Obama administration and famously said of his job, “I go into the office, I sue the federal government and I go home.” Ken Paxton’s office has continued with lawsuits against Obama-era policies.
How Long Before Biden’s Executive Orders

Joe Biden has been busy signing executive orders yesterday and today. During the Trump era, Democrats streamlined a process of blocking Trump’s executive orders through national injunctions. Here’s how it worked: State Attorneys General from left-leaning states would file lawsuits in friendly courts where left-leaning and judges would promptly issue injunctions that applied to everyone. This started with an injunction shutting down Trump’s ban on entry for certain countries which became known as the “Muslim ban.” Trump revised that executive order but that too was met with a nationwide injunction. When Trump tried to limit funds going to “sanctuary cities” that was met with a nationwide injunction.

Scientists are reporting troubling signs that some recent mutations of the virus that causes COVID-19 may modestly curb the effectiveness of two current vaccines, although they stress that the shots still protect against the disease. Researchers expressed concern Wednesday about the preliminary findings, in large part because they suggest that future mutations could undermine vaccines. (Snip One way vaccines work is to prompt the immune system to make antibodies that block the virus from infecting cells. The Rockefeller researchers got blood samples from 20 people who had received either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine and tested their antibodies against various virus mutations in the lab.

Over 325 academics and scientists in Australian universities and research institutes have been identified as alleged recruits of Beijing’s controversial overseas talent-recruitment programs. The allegations raise questions over potential conflicts of interest, grant fraud, and Australian research funds inadvertently advancing the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) military technology. Alex Joske of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), wrote to the Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security claiming that despite 325 individuals being identified, as many as 600 could be connected to Beijing-backed partnerships. (Snip)“Recruits are encouraged to transfer technology to China and commercialise it, including technologies with military and security applications,” Joske wrote in his parliamentary submission (pdf).
