Congressional candidate for Florida’s 11th district Laura Loomer commissioned a caricature of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey over the weekend. Now, it’s displayed all around Twitter headquarters.

First its artist, Bosch Fawstin, won the “First Annual Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest” in 2015. ISIS targeted this same exhibit around the same time. Fawstin is a former Muslim himself. Now, his most recent artwork is titled “TaliBANNED.”

“The issue with leftist-run tech companies like Twitter is not about whether they have the right to ban people from their platform, it’s about who they consistently target for banning and why, and who they don’t ban, no matter what,” Fawstin told the Gateway Pundit. “Twitter bans Islam critics like me and Laura, acting in full accordance with Shariah blasphemy laws, while allowing Islamic terrorists who murder Americans to spread their propaganda on their platform. That’s evil, whether or not they have the technical ‘right’ to ban whomever they want.”

“For years, I have been raising awareness about Twitter’s alliance with Islamic terrorist organizations and their willingness to platform enemies of America,” Loomer said. “This is a concept I have referred to as Silicon Sharia, as Twitter has shown they have no problem banning millions of Americans for their constitutionally protected speech, including myself and sitting President Donald Trump during our elections, while they happily provide a platform for recruitment and propaganda for actual terrorists.”

Meanwhile, Loomer and Fawstin remained banned from Twitter themselves. However, Loomer will not back down from her divisive rhetoric. She claims to remain a proud Islamophobe.

CORRECTION: Loomer previously announced to be running for the second time in Florida’s 21st district. However, she withdrew before the Republican primary and has since announced to be running in the 11th district instead.

BREAKING: Senate votes down both articles of impeachment against Mayorkas in party-line vote

Mayorkas

The Senate voted down two articles of impeachment Wednesday which alleged Department of Homeland Security Secretary  Alejandro Mayorkas engaged in the “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” regarding the southern border in his capacity as DHS secretary. The second claimed Mayorkas had breached public trust.

What resulted in a party-line vote, began with Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., proposing a point of order declaring the first article unconstitutional, to which the majority of senators agreed following several failed motions by Republicans. The article was deemed unconstitutional by a vote of 51-48, with Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, voting present.

Fox News reports:

Schumer’s point of order was proposed after his request for unanimous consent, which would have provided a set amount of time for debate among the senators, as well as votes on two GOP resolutions and a set amount of agreed upon points of order, was objected to by Sen. Eric Schmitt, R-Mo.

Schmitt stated in his objection that the Senate should conduct a full trial into the impeachment articles against Mayorkas, rather than the debate and points of order suggested by Schumer’s unanimous consent request, which would be followed by a likely successful motion to dismiss the articles. 

Republican senators took issue with Schumer’s point of order, as agreeing to it would effectively kill the first of the two articles. Several GOP lawmakers proposed motions, which took precedence over the point of order, to adjourn or table the point, among other things. But all GOP motions failed. 

After another batch of motions to avoid voting on Schumer’s second point of order, which would deem the second article unconstitutional, the Senate agreed to it. The vote was along party lines 51-49, with Murkowski rejoining the Republicans.
