Giuliani WARNS a Biden win will empower tech giants, as Sen. Cruz Grills Twitter CEO
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani realized he was sitting on a powder keg of information allegedly exposing possible questionable business dealings former Vice President Joe Biden, along with his family, last December. He had been given the alleged contents of Hunter Biden’s private laptop. He wasn’t the only one with the laptop because the FBI had received the hard drive that same month.
The contents, said Giuliani who has reviewed the thousands of pictures and documents, were enough to warrant a criminal investigation by the FBI.
Nearly a year has gone by and the FBI has failed to do its job, said the close confidant and personal lawyer of President Donald Trump to me on Monday’s The Sara Carter Show. It is the reason the tough New York lawyer turned over Hunter Biden’s private emails, texts and pictures to The New York Post but what came next was even more daunting than the FBI’s alleged failure to investigate – it was the “big tech” giants open censorship of any story revealing the possible questionable and criminal concerns surrounding the Democratic nominee for the president of the United States.
Twitter, Facebook and Google appeared to be protecting the Vice President and they are still battling it out with Congress at a Senate hearing Wednesday investigating the matter.
The tough New York lawyer warned that companies, like Google, Twitter and Facebook want Trump out. They realize he is a tour de force against their censorship and anti-American behavior. Giuliani pointed out that the tech giants know that the Trump administration will hold their feet to the fire and possibly remove Section 230 from their protection if he’s re-elected. Vice President Joe Biden, he said, would only empower the tech giants of Silicon Valley.
“I only only can conclude that these people who are doing it, have decided that there are other things that are more important, like they’re making money in China, or they’re having a President who will be compliant with their ability to do anything that they want, ” said Giuliani. “Because up until now, big tech has been able to do anything they want. And we let it grow… Now, it’s it’s really completely trashing our right to free speech that has to be stopped.”
He said only a Trump administration will take the ‘big tech giants on’ and certainly a Biden administration would ‘fundamentally’ change our nation forever.
“Every American Democrat, Republican, liberal conservatives should sit back and answer that question for themselves?” Giuliani responded to whether or not a Biden administration would take on Big tech or allow to grow and be used as a tool to control the populace by the government.
He said people need to be “paying attention.” He said we need to pay attention because we have a choice to continue to “exist as a democracy.”
Giuliani made it clear that the FBI also received the contents in December, 2019 that were contained in Hunter Biden’s laptop. The contents were and are explosive, he said.
There were personal damaging pictures of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son smoking crack, his naked body, along with sexually explicit videos. Some of these photos and videos have already been made public.
Further, there was a litany of documents, from text messages, emails, contracts and other forms of business documents that raised significant questions – some allegedly criminal – about the Biden families business dealings with foreign and sometimes hostile connections to the United States.
It was a huge find and particularly for someone who has watched his friend, President Trump, get hammered by main stream media outlets and a corrupt Obama FBI throughout the past four years for alleged crimes that have now been proven completely false.
But the FBI appeared to be doing northing. Months went by and he decided to give the story to the The New York Post. The Post vetted the information, Giuliani also did the same, and then the paper ran numerous exclusive exposes on Hunter Biden’s business dealings, drug use, sex life and other alleged criminal activity that Giuliani said must be investigated.
However, The Post didn’t get the same treatment as the New York Times or the Washington Post by the big tech giants when they ran their story on Biden. In fact, the big tech giants immediately began censoring the New York Post. They now claim that they were using a rule implemented in 2018 regarding the sharing of hacked information. But that isn’t the case at all.
As Senators began questioning some of the most powerful men on the planet Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter’s Jack Dorsey and Google’s Sundar Pichai, it became painfully obvious that their intention was to stop the flow of negative information regarding Biden to the public.
The virtual hearing began at 10 a.m. ET in front of the Republican-controlled Senate Commerce Committee. The relatively three young CEO’s appeared a bit out of sync and very careful in how they answered their questions.
Twitter, Google and Facebook have appeared to be targeting conservatives with a vigor. Moreover, the censorship actions – as well as disclaimers alleging the many conservative stories are not properly vetted or false – have led to these Senate hearings and questions about American’s Constitutional right to free speech.
After all, these platforms are publicly traded companies and at their inception they promised their users that they would be free of censorship, right?
Sen. Ted Cruz blasted Twitter’s Dorsey on these very concepts and pointed to numerous Tweets that were not censored for the similar reasons given to the committee about the New York Post’s stories on Biden.
His opening statement was powerful.
“The three witnesses we have here today, I believe pose the single greatest threat to free speech in America and the greatest threat we have to free and fair elections, ” said Sen. Cruz, who stated he spoke with Google’s Pichai and Facebook’s Zuckerberg the day prior.
“I have concerns about the behavior of both of their companies,” stressed the Senator in his statement. “I would note that Facebook at the minimum is trying to make some efforts in the direction of defending free speech. I appreciate their doing so.”
As for Google, Cruz noted that he agreed with concerns raised by his Democratic Senate colleague Sen. Amy Klobuchar.
“Google has more power than any company on the face of the planet,” Cruz said. “And the anti-Trust concerns are real, the impact of Google is profound and I expect we will have continued and ongoing discussions of Googles abuse of that power and it’s willingness to manipulate search outcomes to influence and change election results.”
During a contentious back and forth with Dorsey Cruz said “Mr. Dorsey, who the hell elected you and put you in charge of what the media are allowed to report and what the American people are allowed to hear, and why do you persist in behaving as a Democratic super PAC, silencing views to the contrary of your political beliefs?”
In response Dorsey tried to say that The Post‘s story violated Twitter’s “hacked materials policy.” He tried to squirm his way out by saying the policy had to be updated..
“We recognized errors in that policy. We changed it within twenty-four hours,” he said.
