    The only way remaining to truly protect freedom of expression and, in turn, our democracy, is by building free and open internet.In a meeting of a House antitrust subcomittee last week, members took turns lamenting the market supremacy of Big Tech — and making pledges to curtail it. Bipartisan consensus on this is refreshing, and it is in fact the charge of government to ensure free markets by breaking up monopolies.Americans, however, should not put their trust in princes. While these hearings make for good campaign ads, Congress has a bad track record of helping Americans, and American innovators can...

Archived webpages of the legendary conservative journalist’s Twitter, however, show that his account had the symbol through at least January 11th, 2021. The following archive of Breitbart’s Twitter page, from February 20th, 2021, lacks a checkmark next to his name.

    When the Democrats get caught doing not as they say, they often ignore it and act like hypocrites. But some “offenses” they’ve made so grave that they can’t get away with it. Their latest likely victim is Neera Tanden, who The New York Times suggests will be “First Cabinet-Level Casualty of the Twitter Age?” Biden nominated Tanden for Director of the Office of Management and Budget. She has a staunch left-wing background. She served as policy adviser for the Clinton White House, advised Hillary Clinton as senator and presidential candidate, served in the Obama administration, and most recently, served as...

    President Biden on Tuesday said he was withdrawing Neera Tanden’s nomination to be White House budget director. Biden presented the white flag as Tanden’s idea and the White House released a letter from her saying she wanted to drop out. Tanden faced increasingly long odds at confirmation due to her past mean tweets about senators, including swing-voting Republicans and even some Democrats. Biden said in a statement that he “accepted Neera Tanden’s request to withdraw her name from nomination for Director of the Office of Management and Budget.” “I have the utmost respect for her record of accomplishment, her experience...

I am pretty sure most (probably 90%) of his reading audience aka customers tend to be men who fall on the right of the political spectrum. Stop making this liberal and other liberal scum any money. So if I may humbly ask for a boycott against Harry Turtledove. I won't post links to his Twitter and I am pretty sure it is his...

    Wow. I am not sure how to post a Tweet here, but I just saw a remarkable (fake) Tom Cruise tweet. It was remarkable. Starts with a close-up of "Tom". Then zooms out, to watch him put on a pair of sunglasses, make a shot, then he comes back to the camera in another close-up where he again removed the sunglasses, and says "sports and tictoc fans" of you like this, just wait until you see what's next.
