Leading up to the debate on the Democrats latest bill proposals, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) appeared on the Sara Carter Show podcast to share his thoughts on them.

Jordan told host Sara Carter he especially took issue with the Democrats weak attempt to reign in big tech.

Six bills altogether will be brought to the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday, of which Jordan is a ranking member. Five of those bills center around big tech. Some of the proposals include a ban on platforms from competing against businesses that they also promote and a requirement that they sell their companies that are already competing. The bills also propose banning platforms from merging with some competitors but also requiring them to pay more when they merge with others.

But, Jordan says that’s not enough. “Those pieces of legislation purport to do what we’ve described to to help us deal with big tech, but they do nothing to address the censorship,” he said.

Instead, the Ohio representative has two solutions of his own. “One, we need to take away their liability protection, the so called section 230,” Jordan said. Section 230 is legislation that prevents big tech platforms from being sued over what their users post. “But that’s not enough,” Jordan went on. “So in addition to that, we also need to look at breaking these companies up and giving them American citizens a private right of action to sue big tech, when they when they censor you in particular.” He admitted this is very similar to the legislation Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida signed recently.

Next, Jordan will get the chance to “markup” all six bills. This means they will debate, amend and rewrite the proposals Wednesday. Finally, Jordan’s committee will vote to see whether the bills will be voted on by Congress.

Driver free on bond after he admittedly killed teenager for Conservative views

41-year-old Shannon Brandt is out on bond even though he was the one who admitted to killing a teenager because of the youngster’s political affiliation. Brandt chased 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson and ran him down with his car claiming he was part of a “Republican extremist group.” Police say Brandt was drunk when he hit and killed Ellingson with his SUV.

Brandt was charged Monday with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a deadly accident. Later in the week, he was let out on $50,000 bond stating he is not a flight risk. “I have a job, a life and a house and things I don’t want to see go by the wayside — family that are very important to me,” Brandt told the judge.

Since his release, Brandt started removing certain content from his social media, the Post Millenial observed. “Prosecutors allege moments before he was killed, 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson called his mom to come rescue him because 41-year-old Shannon Brandt was chasing him in the city of McHenry, where the street dance had just wrapped up. By the time she could get there, her son was dead” reports National Review.

“He was the one who called 911 to report the crash,” said North Dakota Highway Patrol Capt. Bryan Niewind.

Court papers show Brandt called 911 around 2:30 a.m. Sunday and told the 911 dispatcher that he just hit Ellingson, claiming the teen was part of a Republican extremist group and was calling people to come get Brandt after a political argument.
