Last night, Donald Trump accused Twitter of “conservative discrimination” and called for an end of Section 230, which offers a degree of immunity to the social media platforms for any content uploaded by third parties.

Section 230 has been criticized by Trump and Joe Biden, while social media and tech giants claim that it is critical to their continued existence. Still, critics of the big tech giants point out that because Twitter, Facebook and Google, for example, operate as publishers, they no longer deserve immunity from content uploaded by third parties.

“Why isn’t Biden corruption trending number one on Twitter? Biggest world story, and nowhere to be found. There is no ‘trend’, only negative stories that Twitter wants to put up. Disgraceful! Section 230,” the president tweeted October 28.

Trump has accused social media sites of censoring conservative voices, including his own, while Biden told The New York Times the law needed changing as the platforms have played a key role in the spreading of viral misinformation.

In October, Trump accused Twitter of censoring tweets that had to do with Hunter Biden email controversy.

“Why isn’t Biden corruption trending number one on Twitter? Biggest world story, and nowhere to be found. There is no ‘trend’, only negative stories that Twitter wants to put up. Disgraceful! Section 230,” the president tweeted October 28.

Twitter has repeatedly flagged Trump’s tweets by adding warning labels claiming the information in the tweets is “misleading.”

Trump’s battle with censorship has been ongoing and has escalated in recent months.

Trump called for a repeal of Section 230 back in May, but is now emphasizing the importance of repealing the act.

On Twitter last night Trump wrote, “They and the Fake News, working together, want to SILENCE THE TRUTH. Can’t let that happen. This is what Communist countries do!”

PJ Media report: SHOCKER! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lago Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative

PJ Media’s Kevin Downey Jr. has dissected a Washington Post report regarding findings from the raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. “Shocker! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lag0 Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative” Downey Jr.’s report is titled.

“Remember when the FBI raided Trump’s home supposedly looking for “nuclear secrets” a few months back? Guess how that turned out?” the article begins.

I’ll let the quislings at the Washinton Post spell it out:

Federal agents and prosecutors have come to believe former president Donald Trump’s motive for allegedly taking and keeping classified documents was largely his ego and a desire to hold on to the materials as trophies or mementos, according to people familiar with the matter.

In other words, Trump was keeping souvenirs, as everyone else does.

Funny how WaPo sat on that story until after the midterms, right?

But wait, there’s more!

That review has not found any apparent business advantage to the types of classified information in Trump’s possession, these people said. FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets. Instead, the former president seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property, these people said.

The WaPo also found no evidence that Trump was looking to “leverage, sell or use the government secrets.”

They threw the idea in near the very end that they still might come up with something juicy:

The people familiar with the matter cautioned that the investigation is ongoing, that no final determinations have been made, and that it is possible additional information could emerge that changes investigators’ understanding of Trump’s motivations. But they said the evidence collected over a period of months indicates the primary explanation for potentially criminal conduct was Trump’s ego and intransigence.
