A new bill targeting U.S. government transactions with big tech companies is being proposed by Republican firebrand Rep. Lauren Boebert who lashed out at former Twitter executives this week for shadow banning her and other conservative lawmakers and commentators.

It is called the ELON (Exposing Lewd Outlays for Social Networking Companies) Act. This bill requires the DOJ to report its spending with big tech companies after information from whistleblowers surfaced about the cozy relationship between the government and FBI.

The U.S. comptroller general will be required to go back to reports dating back to January 1st, 2015 and submit any and all reports of DOJ payments to Twitter, Meta, Google, Microsoft and Apple, according to reports.

According to Fox News, the Colorado Republican said her “bill, the ELON Act, requires a report from all agencies on federal dollars sent to big tech companies” and also places a one-year moratorium on additional funds.” Boebert also added, “we must expose the incestuous relationship between Big Tech and the federal government… My bill does exactly that.”

Reps. Matt Gaetz, Troy Nehls of Texas, Paul Gosar of Arizona and several other GOP members are co-sponsors of the bill, According to Fox News.

On Wednesday February 8th, Boebert slammed ex-twitter executives for their role in the shadow-banning of certain politicians such as herself. Rep. Boebert mentioned a tweet from Matt Taibi, an a journalist who has been at the forefront of reporting on the twitter files, which stated, “Twitter’s contact with the FBI was constant and pervasive, as if it were a subsidiary.”

Boebert asked Twitter’s former head of safety, Yoel Roth, how many meetings he had with the FBI. When she asked if it was “more than 10” he responded, “that a reasonable estimate.”

When she asked if it was “more then 20” he responded saying, “he couldn’t say for sure.”

Boebert then asked, “More then 50?” Roth’s response then changed to, “that seems a bit high,” as if Roth knows the number but has to much pride to tell the absolute truth to Rep. Boebert and the American people.

There were at least nine former FBI agents who worked for Twitter before Elon Musk acquired the social media giant and according to Boebert these agents had started a “BU(Bureau) group chat.” Boebert said, “its almost hard to tell where the FBI ends and where twitter begins,” inferring that they are two sides of the same coin.

A social media giant acting jointly with a government organization like the FBI is a major threat to national security, to the privacy of US citizens. It is an altered version of the famous book 1984 by George Orwell.

The FBI had influence over the decision making at Twitter which interfered with things such as our elections. Twitter has the ability to influence what it’s subscribers see and they were not even aware of it happening. Our President at the time was banned alongside many other politicians, taking away their voice from the public, that alone is censorship and a willful disregard to our first amendment.

Boebert’s ELON act is intended to hold the DOJ accountable. This should be a comfort to all taxpaying American citizens. Everyone in this country should have a right to know where their tax dollars are going and how much is being sent to major business conglomerates that have a blinding influence over them.

The ELON bill will provide the all expenses since January 1st of 2015 and will give clarity on how much money was spent by the DOJ to these big corporations during three different major elections. This bill will help congress manage our taxpayer budget, help allocate funds to where they are needed to benefit U.S. citizens and keep government officials from possible election interference.

Thomas Jefferson famously said, “When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”

There is ‘repeated evidence’ of non-citizens voting

There is “repeated evidence” of non-citizens voting, Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) said during an appearance on Breitbart News Daily, discussing the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act.

“Let me just say this about the overall state of the election issue,” Roy began, explaining that “we’ve got repeated evidence of those who are here illegally — or, or whether they’re here legally — but non-citizens voting.”

“We’ve got studies demonstrating that. We’ve got evidence that it may have tipped the election for Al Franken and his election back in Minnesota. Objective studies have showed…Virginia tossing out 1,500 registered voters just last year. I can go through a laundry list. We’ve got local jurisdictions — Oakland, San Francisco, our nation’s capital in Washington, DC, and New York City — who are registering voters specifically for their state and local elections, but we know that they don’t work hard to make sure they’re not voting in federal elections,” he said, noting that “federal law prohibits [and] limits the ability of states to be able to check and ensure citizenship, so much so that the state of Arizona has to run two systems — one for their state local elections and one for their federal elections.”

“They’re literally bifurcated because they want to ensure citizenship for their state and local elections, but they’re not allowed to for federal elections. Therefore, we need to fix the problem,” he said.

Breitbart News adds:

Further, Roy said, because of the Motor Voter Act — the National Voter Registration Act — passed in the 1990s, the courts have interpreted federal laws to limit the state’s ability to “determine and collect the information necessary for determining and checking citizenship.”

Essentially, Roy said the U.S. has set up a system that requires federal agencies to push out the forms, encouraging individuals to register to vote. And while they ask one to identify if they are a citizen, and while federal law requires one to be a citizen to vote in federal elections, the congressman said there is nothing there to actually check citizenship.

The SAVE Act would help address these issues and correct what Roy described as the “glitch,” making it so every state would require anyone applying to register to vote to prove their citizenship.

“By doing that, though, it is correcting the glitch. It also goes through and it addresses some of the issues that have been complicated. There are states, for example, like North Dakota, which does not have voter registration at all, okay? So they can just show up to vote and don’t have registration…They have their own rules there about what you have to present in order just to vote. And that’s obviously a less populated state than, say, California or Texas or New York or Florida. But, so, we adapt and try to adjust to help with those kinds of situations. But, overall, the purpose of the bill is exactly as you just described, pretty simple,” Roy said. This is a bipartisan issue with massive support.
