Jenna Ellis: Congress needs to ‘get off their butts’ and tackle Sec. 230

Constitutional Law Attorney, Senior Legal Adviser to the Trump Campaign, and Counsel to the President Jenna Ellis emphasized the need for Congress to act and fast to tackle big tech censorship, during Thursday’s episode of “The Sara Carter Show.” Ellis explained to host Sara A. Carter that social media companies have gone too far and act as publishers by censoring users, such as the President and prominent media outlets and reporters.

The only way to fix the problem, Ellis said, is to have the U.S. government intervene and fix Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which states that “no provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.”

In recent months, just ahead of the November 2020 presidential election, social media companies like Twitter and Facebook have censored users. For example, it seems like every time the President tweets about mail-in voting being fraudulent, Twitter issues a warning or clarification to his tweets.

“What needs to happen is that Congress absolutely has to act, they need to get off their butts, they need to do something about this,” she told Carter. “And they need to make sure that section 230 whether or not it’s repealed, does not apply. And that’s where there has to be a whether it’s you know, it’s a class action or whether you know, it’s an individual plaintiff, who will actually go into court and say, Judge, look, they are acting like a publisher in this regard, because their term their use and Terms of Service are not being applied.”

The New York Post’s recent reporting on Hunter Biden’s alleged shady foreign business dealings has been censored by the platform as well. In fact, many accounts that shared the reports including that of the White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s were suspended.

The issue pushed the Senate Judiciary Committee this week to issue subpoenas to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai.

Ellis added of Twitter’s actions, “It’s discriminatory enforcement. And it has a chilling effect on speech because they are acting as a publisher, not a platform. And so big tech is going to have to choose Do you want censorship like you can with a publisher? Or do you want section 230 immunity? You should not be able to have both under the law.”

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
