FULL TITLE: Exclusive Devin Nunes Warns U.S. About Tech Oligarchs Censorship, Bias Against Conservatives: I Am Very Concerned
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the ranking member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence, told Breitbart News he is very concerned about the rising threat of the tech oligarchs at Twitter, Facebook, Google, and other tech giants censoring conservatives in an effort to stymie free speech and push a leftist agenda. Nunes, who is suing Twitter right now in Virginia, said in an exclusive appearance on Breitbart News Sunday on SiriusXM Patriot Channel 125 this weekend that that company has been the worst and that tech companies have gotten away with bias against conservative for years because of a special carveout in federal law.
Well, in general, I have a real concern overall about what I call the tech oligarchs, Nunes said. But Twitter has been the worst, especially to me. So if you look at what theyve done, specifically to me, is they enforce their rules selectively. So Im arguing theyve operated their property negligibly. Theyve been negligent with the operation of their property, and theyre actually content developers. They have had it their way for a long time by having this ability to get out from lawsuits because Congress has actually carved out a special provision in law for them because they were supposed to be an open squarean open public square; theyre the Internet. So theyre not treated like someone like, say, some other kind of product would be treated like a car, for example, or a kitchen appliance. Theyve had this special carveout for 20 years.

Golly Gee Willikers...You’re really concerned. Wow!!!!! Stop the presses.
What are you going to do about it? Nothing. Just like nothing will be done to any of the people that attempted the coup against the President.
These evil Tech Giants need to be taken down. Now.
Then why don’t you Demand the President do something about Spygate, maybe LOCK THEM ALL UP, maybe enough House Democrats were part of the Attempted Overthrow of the United States Government to give you a Majority before the Election, if so, SEIZE the DOMAINS of all these Big Tech sites for their Illegal In Kind Contributions and Defrauding the American people.
What about that!
We have oligarchs just like the Russians.
Devin Nunes vs. Tech Nazis - bump for later.....
Devin Nunes has no more influence over these kind of events than you or I do. Only Devin himself seems to be unaware of that. Maybe he’s selling books or speaking engagements.
Hi Tech triads are in league with the CCP, in every single case. As such they are enemies of the state. The Attorney General has an obligation to shut these mafias down.
This is an extremely serious problem. It is an important weapon in the arsenal of those who intend to establish George Orwell's 1984 nightmare in America, and they are well on the way to achieving their evil objective.
Three years in and none of them have done anything about it.
Then what’s he in Congress for?
IMO we are already beyond the point of no return.
These entities have vast powers, and there is no mechanism to restrain them.
We have two generations fully indoctrinated, for autocratic socialism.
Neither Republicans or democrats have inclination to pass laws, that would make much difference.
You cannot separate the “conservative” part of Google, since it does not exist.
The America and the world, will be what Big Media lead them to be.
Twitter Initial public offering (IPO)-On September 12, 2013, Twitter announced that it had filed papers with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) ahead of a planned stock market listing. It revealed its prospectus in an 800-page filing. Twitter planned to raise US$1 billion as the basis for its stock market debut. The IPO filing states that 200,000,000+ monthly active users access Twitter and 500,000,000+ tweets per day are posted. In an October 15, 2013 amendment to their SEC S-1 filing, Twitter declared that they would list on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), quashing speculation that their stock would trade on the NASDAQ exchange.
This decision was widely viewed to be a reaction to the botched initial public offering of Facebook. On November 6, 2013, 70 million shares were priced at US$26 and issued by lead underwriter Goldman Sachs.
On November 7, 2013, the first day of trading on the NYSE, Twitter shares opened at $26.00 and closed at US$44.90, giving the company a valuation of around US$31 billion. The paperwork from show of November 7 that among the founders, Williams received a sum of US$2.56 billion and Dorsey received US$1.05 billion, while Costolos payment was US$345 million. On February 5, 2014, Twitter published its first results as a public company, showing a net loss of $511 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. On January 5, 2016, CEO Jack Dorsey commented on a report that Twitter planned to expand its character limit to 10,000 (private messages already had the longer limit as of July), requiring users to click to see anything beyond 140 characters. He said while Twitter would never lose that feeling of speed, users could do more with the text. In September 2016, Twitter shares rose 20% after a report that it had received takeover approaches. Potential buyers were Alphabet (parent company of Google), Microsoft, Salesforce.com, Verizon, and The Walt Disney Company. Twitters board of directors were open to a deal, which could have come by the end of 2016. However, no deal was made, with reports in October stating that all the potential buyers dropped out partly due to concerns over abuse and harassment on the service. In June 2017, Twitter revamped its dashboard to improve the new user experience.
The social media platform proves without a shadow of a doubt that they do not have a terms of service implemented to curb threats. Twitters rules or their terms of service is only a front to ban conservatives, Weve known this to be true all along now we have proof. CASE IN POINT After a selectively edited video of the Covington Catholic teens went viral on Twitter, verified, bluecheck accounts accused the minor teens of mobbing and harassing a Native American activist the full video of what transpired proved this narrative to be a huge lie. ********* Verified accounts ran with the lie and called for the murder, physical assault and even sexual crimes to be committed against the children. These calls for violence against children clearly violate Twitters Terms of Service, however they took no action against the accounts. Every single account is still up. ********* Twitter has taken no action against these verified bluecheck accounts even though they blatantly violated the terms of service. In fact, hundreds of people reported House Shoes, a Los Angeles-based DJ who called for the Covington Catholic kids to be burned alive and Twitter said in a response that his tweets did not violate the rules.

This pattern and practice of making death threats proves that Twitter is not a common carrier; its executives should be liable for crimes committed using that service.
The organized left has already decimated conservative voices on Facebook with many of the top 2016 publishers already put out of business. Facebook cut nearly two billion page views to conservative websites in 2018. This is a bloodbath. Facebook has wiped out conservative content to American users. There is also evidence of far left Google officials debating how to bury conservative content. Google regularly censors conservative content.
Far left Google and Facebook also control 80% of advertising dollars online. And they openly discriminate against conservative publishers. Twitter continues to eliminate pro-Trump and conservative users and shadow-ban thousands of conservative accounts. But this is not enough. (Excerpt) Read more at thegatewaypundit.com ...
Is there any good guys left with any power at all?
Any good hackers?
That is what it will take. All courts and prosecutors are bought, including Barr and all others.
No knock raids will soon follow.
Tech oligarchs are, like it or not, logical. They have a misguided premise or two. Any counter movement must involve logic and that means data and that means RAW data. We need numbers, status data, scalar quantities from which to mobilize vector attributes.
Thanks E. Pluribus Unum.
