Florida Governor Ron DeSantis detailed his latest crackdown on big tech Wednesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

DeSantis proposed three measures to protect Floridians from big tech, including a $100,000 fine for social media companies that de-platform political candidates.

DeSantis’s new proposals will benefit individual protections as well, allowing users and the Florida attorney general to sue companies if they have been treated unfairly. Additionally, DeSantis will require social media companies to provide full disclosure to their users of actions taken against their accounts for violating policies. Finally, actions taken by companies to effectively promote a political candidate will be considered campaign contributions.

“We think that this is something Floridians want protection from and I think it will end up being a really good first step,” DeSantis told Carlson. “I think most folks do want protection for their privacy and their data, I think most folks want protection from being de-platformed.”

DeSantis thinks these new measures will be positively received and may set a precedent for the rest of the country.

“When Florida leads, other states start following. So I think you will see other legislatures follow suit,” DeSantis said.

DeSantis acknowledged that he’s prepared for a “big fight” in the legislative session.

“I think it will be very positively received, but we’re buckled up. We know there are always fights over these things, so stay tuned.”

Biden’s Email Controversy Deepens: A Saga of Aliases, Whistleblowers, and Shadowy Communications

In a bombshell revelation, new records released by the House Ways & Means Committee expose a labyrinth of email aliases and private addresses used by then-Vice President Joe Biden to communicate with his son Hunter and key business associates, according to metadata obtained from IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler.

Furthermore, according to reports from Fox News, the data, covering the span of nine years from 2010 to 2019, reveals an astonishing 327 exchanges between Biden and his son, notably during Biden’s tenure as vice president.

The majority of these clandestine communications were exclusively with Eric Schwerin, a pivotal figure described as “the architect of the Biden family’s shell companies.” The emails were conducted using aliases such as “robinware456,” “JRBware,” and “RobertLPeters.” House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer had previously hinted at the existence of Biden’s email aliases earlier this year.

According to reports, the whistleblowers, still actively employed as IRS investigators, ran a search for Biden’s email aliases in their existing files, revealing the 327 exchanges with Hunter Biden and Schwerin. The metadata access, however, falls short of scrutinizing email content, requiring a search warrant for deeper investigation.

Schwerin, former president of Hunter’s Rosemont Seneca Advisors, has found himself under the spotlight. In a March 2023 meeting with the House Oversight Committee, Schwerin claimed he was unaware of any transactions related to Biden family business in the then-Vice President’s bank account.

This assertion aligns with the White House narrative, pushing back against Republican scrutiny and an impeachment inquiry.

Amidst the rising scrutiny, House Oversight Committee Chairman Comer has subpoenaed Schwerin for a deposition on Nov. 9, indicating a deepening probe into the financial intricacies of the Biden family.

The data also reveals a spike in emails between Biden and Schwerin during the vice president’s travels to Ukraine, a period significantly coinciding with Hunter Biden’s board membership at Burisma Holdings.

The information underscores the increased communication between the two during crucial junctures, raising questions about the nature of their discussions and the potential intersection of official government business with family interests.

Ways & Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith, spearheading the impeachment inquiry against President Biden, asserts that the evidence points to Joe Biden’s use of private email accounts with aliases while conducting official duties on international trips.

The broader investigation by Smith, alongside House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan and House Oversight Committee Chairman Comer, delves into foreign money received by the Biden family and whether President Biden was involved in their foreign business dealings.

As the House intensifies its scrutiny, Hunter Biden’s scheduled deposition on Dec. 13 promises further revelations, with House Republicans pledging transparency by releasing the transcript and advocating for a public hearing. The saga of Biden’s emails unfolds against a backdrop of denial from the White House and Justice Department officials, creating a complex narrative.
