"Conservatives Against Online Censorship"

Coalition to Persuade Social Media Giants to Address Bias Complaints

A new, permanent coalition has been created in response to what some have called the continued online restriction and censorship of conservatives and their organizations by tech giants, including Facebook, Twitter, Google, and Youtube.
On Tuesday, the Media Research Center (www.mrc.org) along with 18 leading conservative organizations announced the creation of the Conservatives Against Online Censorship.   
In a statement on the MRC's website,(info.mrc.org/censored.html)  the new coalition says it will draw attention to the issue of political censorship on social media.  The group says it will urge social media companies to address four key areas of concern.

>Provide Transparency - Design open systems so companies can be held responsible while addressing privacy concerns.
>Provide Clarity on 'Hate Speech' - If companies can't tell users what hate speech is, then they shouldn't try to regulate it
>Provide Equal Footing for Conservatives  - Social media companies need to embrace viewpoint diversity.
>Mirror the First Amendment - Give users the free speech and free exercise of religion as recognized by the First Amendment as upheld by the US Supreme Court. 

"Social Media is the most expansive and most game-changing form of communication today. It is these facts that make online political censorship one of the largest threats to free speech we have ever seen. Conservatives should be given the same ability to express their political ideas online as liberals, without the fear of being suppressed or censored," said Media Research Center President Brent Bozell in a statement posted on the organization's website.

"Meaningful debate only happens when both sides are given equal footing. Freedom of speech, regardless of ideological leaning, is something Americans hold dear," Bozell continued. "Facebook, Twitter, and all other social media companies must acknowledge this and work to rectify these concerns unless they want to lose all credibility with the conservative movement. As leaders of this effort, we are launching this coalition to make sure that the recommendations we put forward on behalf of the conservative movement are followed through."

The MRC also says it sent letters to Facebook, Twitter, Google and Youtube last week asking each company to address bias complaints and to begin a conversation on how they can work to regain the trust of conservatives.  According to the MRC, as of Tuesday, only Facebook had issued a formal response.


The Democrats’ impeachment charade came just in time to distract America from the upcoming release of several damning reports, including the Inspector General’s report into the illicit origins of the Russia-collusion hoax dossier.

However, the impeachment rollout didn’t go as planned and now the Democrats are caught in a stalemate.
If they move forward with impeachment, the Republicans will take advantage by issuing their own subpoenas, eventually killing the whole thing in the Senate.
But, if they don’t move forward with impeachment, it will demoralize the Democrat base.

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper admitted on CNN that former President Obama had ordered the CIA and FBI to spy on the Trump campaign leading up to the 2016 election.

In a CNN appearance on Monday, host Jim Sciutto asked Clapper if he’s concerned that Attorney General William Barr and U.S. attorney John Durham will find wrongdoing by intelligence officials like him.

“The message I’m getting from all this is, apparently what we were supposed to have done was to ignore the Russian interference, ignore the Russian meddling and the threat that it poses to us, and oh, by the way, blown off what the then commander in chief, President Obama, told us to do, which was to assemble all the reporting that we could that we had available to us and put it in one report that the president could pass on to the Congress and to the next administration,”

Clapper said.

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh pointed out Clapper’s bombshell admission during his broadcast:

RUSH: Audio sound bite number 10, this morning on CNN Jim Sciutto is talking to James Clapper, who was as corrupt as Brennan, Obama’s Director of National Intelligence. And Jim Sciutto says, “Are you concerned that Barr or Durham’s investigation will find wrongdoing and seek to punish former intelligence officials like you?”


​CLAPPER: The message I’m getting from all this is, apparently what we were supposed to have done was to ignore the Russian interference, ignore the Russian meddling and the threat that it poses to us, and oh, by the way, blown off what the then commander in chief, President Obama, told us to do, which was to assemble all the reporting that we could that we had available to us —

RUSH: Wait, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Stop the digital. Did you hear what he just said? He just said (imitating Clapper), “And, by the way, should we have just blown off what Obama told us to do?” Does he know what he’s just done here? Clapper on CNN today said Obama made us do it. Here, finish the bite or play it from the top, whichever you have ready to go.

CLAPPER: — and put it in one report that the president could pass on to the Congress and to the next administration. And while we’re at it, declassify as much as we possibly could to make it public, and that’s what we did.

SCIUTTO: One issue I’m — (crosstalk)

CLAPPER: It’s kind of disconcerting now to be investigated for, you know having done our duty and done what we were told to do by the president.

RUSH: Well, so now he doesn’t like it! Now that he’s being investigated here by Barr and Durham, he says, “Hey, it was Obama. We’re just doing what Obama told us to
