Social media could be useful in getting around teh dishonest, distorted media.
This will upset the commie moles embedded in the government.

The Time Magazine website is now also reporting on this and that it happened after the ban.
Heh - party’s over, you female canines.
Bad links to the source. It seems to be gone.
President Trump to sign immigration papers Wednesday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
don’t fire ‘em; send ‘em to pt. barrow, alaska for some AGW studies.
Every business in the world has these exact same rules. They don’t want employees speaking for or about the company.
Pffffft. I don’t want any of our money to go to these @ssholes.
Great; but we need to take our case against environmental extremism to the public, or those fanatics are going to be back. There are some effective conservative groups out there who could effectively use some donations.
It just got to be a lot less fun to be a global warming activist riding on the Government Gravy Train at the EPA.
Where did you hear this??
