    Morgan, Lewis & Bockius announced Wednesday that it will be dropping former President Donald Trump and the Trump Organization as tax clients. “We have had a limited representation of the Trump Organization and Donald Trump in tax-related matters,” a Morgan Lewis spokeswoman told Law.com, Bloomberg Law and Thomson Reuters Legal. “For those matters not already concluded, we are transitioning as appropriate to other counsel.” Law360 reports on one ongoing matter—a probe seeking information on whether the Trump Organization inflated the value of property donated for a conservation easement to claim a higher tax deduction. On Tuesday, Judge Arthur Engoron of...

    Prime Minister Johnson offered an oblique defence of U.S. President Joe Biden when asked if he thought he was “woke”, saying there was “nothing wrong” with that. Prime Minister Johnson, a notionally conservative politician, made the comments after Lisa Nandy, shadow foreign secretary for the opposition Labour party, had praised Mr Biden, 78, as “a woke guy”.
  • WATCH: Apple CEO Tim Cook Accidentally Reveals Collusion Between Big Tech Companies To Censor Free Speech

    01/19/2021 6:57:13 AM PST · by A.M. Smith · 22 replies
    Apple’s CEO Tim Cook took his mask all the way off this weekend when he was talking about removing Parler from the app store from existence through a coordinated monopolistic collusion with other tech giants over supposed incitement concerns. He also gave away the overall game. He said they don’t “consider” the parts of Parler they don’t like to be “free speech.” And then, without realizing it, revealed the reason for, and method of, collusion between the tech giants. It was the “incitement” talk that foreshadowed Cook’s Sunday commentary. See, as we’ve been saying in our ongoing tracking of the...
  • This Is How Conservatives Get Erased From the Internet-And this is how we can change it.

    Two companies, Google and Apple, each control about half of the smartphone market. So when the two companies made a move against Parler, the conservative social media alternative, it effectively erased its app from existence. Joining the party was a third member of the FAANG Big Tech consortium, Amazon, which deplatformed Parler from Amazon Web Services. AWS controls a third of the cloud marketplace. Microsoft and Google are in 2nd and 3rd place. Blocking an app doesn’t permanently kill a social networking service, though it places it at a structural disadvantage, but Apple and Google can flag sites as unsafe...

    Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen is demanding that Google kick President Donald Trump off of YouTube, claiming that banning the president on all social media is necessary to save democracy. Cohen — who is Hollywood’s most outspoken proponent of increased online censorship against conservatives — tweeted his demand on Monday, just days after Twitter and Facebook removed the president from their platforms. “Virtually every social media company has removed Trump…EXCEPT YouTube,” he wrote. “Trump’s YouTube channel is STILL showing videos of his election lies to MILLIONS of people!”

    At least 14 people who President-elect Joe Biden has picked to serve either in his administration or to advise his transition have worked for the Big Tech firms that cracked down earlier this week on President Donald Trump and a social media site popular with conservatives. Apple’s top lobbyist was a chief adviser to the Biden transition team. A former Facebook executive will serve as staff director in the Biden White House, and a former Twitter executive will serve as chief spokesperson for the National Security Council under Biden. Current and former executives at those firms and two others, Google...

    Facebook Inc. said Monday it is removing all content mentioning “stop the steal,” a phrase popular among supporters of President Trump’s claims about the election, as part of a raft of emergency measures to stem misinformation and incitements to violence on its platform in the lead up to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.

    Good old Glenn, one of the few standing classic liberals, pointing out the dangers of the New Left: For years, I heard it's invalid to object to political censorship by FB & Twitter because, if you don't like it, you can just create a competing social media platform. Parler tried. And in 24 hours, Google, Apple & Amazon united to destroy it. That's what monopoly power means. — Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) January 10, 2021And giving everyone on both sides reason to at least give pause to think about what they’re up to: The new corporate authoritarian liberal-left monoculture is going...

    Twitter sparked major controversy Friday with its decision to ban President Trump from its platform. Following Trump's brief suspension after the violence that took place on Capitol Hill Wednesday, Twitter announced on Friday evening that the president will no longer be able to tweet. "After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence," the company wrote in a blog post.

    Yesterday’s insurrection was rooted in lies. That a fair election was stolen. That a significant defeat was actually a landslide victory. That the world’s oldest democracy, ingeniously insulated via autonomous state voting regimens, is a rigged system. Such lies-upon-lies, repeated frequently and fervently, provided the kindling, the spark, the gasolin ---SNIP--- Let it be known to the business world: Hire any of Trump’s fellow fabulists above, and Forbes will assume that everything your company or firm talks about is a lie.

    All teachers in Illinois would be required to “be aware of the effects of power and privilege and the need for social advocacy and social action …” under the “Systems of Oppression” standard. Teachers would additionally be required to “implement and integrate the wide spectrum of fluidity in identities in the curriculum.” Further, they would be required to “assess how their biases and perceptions affect their teaching practice and how they access tools to mitigate their own behavior” including on such concepts as “unearned privilege.” These standards ignore what is most important for our students — that is, increasing the...

    Social media giant Twitter frequently censors pro-life conservatives but is refusing to remove a tweet from communist China celebrating forcing women to have abortions. As LifeNews.com reported, the Chinese Communist government celebrated a decline in births Thursday in a region where it has aggressively persecuted minorities by forcing them to abort their unborn babies. Chinese Embassy in the U.S. treated the report as good news, even highlighting how its government’s “process of eradicating [religious] extremism” contributed to the declining birth rates. The Chinese Communist Party’s eradication “process” reportedly involves massive persecution of Uygur Muslims in the Xinjiang region by detaining...

Ashli Babbitt, a 14-year veteran of the Air Force, was apparently shot by Capitol Police amid protesters breaking into the Capitol building, reported The New York Post.

    Look, we knew going into things that a Biden election win would lead to a tectonic shift in the tone by the media, but this is becoming embarrassing. The surprise is not only how low they would stoop but how rapidly we have arrived at this stage. There are chapped lips already across the journalism gentry from all the throne-kissing taking place the past two months.Over at Politico they have begun a new series to shed light on the incoming president-elect, because after half a century of public office this man is a complete cipher, is the assumption.
