How do we fancy in the UK, allowing an ideological San Francisco company to control the BBC.

Would India be ok with Twitter having authority to completely de-platform Modi?

Pretty much all the elements of the state are united against this including the GOP Senate. The FBI can put this to an end pretty quickly. They're already quite efficiently working though the suspects from last week and many of them are being arrested and being put on no fly lists.

I think this particular madness will end soon.

A metaphorical civil war within the GOP between the GOP establishment and the Trumpers is going to be more interesting.

Twitter stock is down because Trump had 81m followers and was a voracious Tweeter and there's likely fewer active users since his personal account was closed. The huge number of followers and Tweets is probably Twitter overlooked his misdemeanours for so long.

Some want the BBC privatised and wouldn't mind who purchased it. The debate has been conducted many times on this and other forums.

Re banning Mundi from Twitter. If you have terms and conditions then someone has to decide if they've been breached. If not the site owners, then who?

It won’t end because Trump folk won’t ever accept Biden as president and why should they when Democrats and their followings never accepted Trump’s win. Swings and roundabouts.

Whatever, they can not accept his win. It'll prove as fruitless as when people said 'Trump's not my President' when he so evidently was. They just can't be violent about it or off to jail for them.

As long as they don't break the law it's a non-issue.

Sad to see how this post-9/11 hero is going from hero to zero.

New York State Bar Association considers removing Giuliani for telling MAGA rally crowd to use 'trial by combat' before they stormed Capitol

Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani could face expulsion from the New York State Bar Association.

NYSBA announced Monday it is launching a probe into Giuliani's words inciting a crowd to use 'trial by combat' before it stormed the Capitol on Wednesday.

In condemning the riots, the NYSBA wrote in a statement 'the president did not act alone' and put part of the onus on Giuliani for 'inciting' the attack.

It also said they received hundreds of complaints regarding Giuliani's remarks and legal actions casting doubt on the integrity of the 2020 elections.

Re: U.S Election 2020

Armed group planning ‘huge uprising’ in DC if Trump removed by 25th amendment, according to report.

Quote:
The FBI believes an armed group is planning a “huge uprising” in Washington DC if Donald Trump is removed by the 25th amendment, according to a report.

Investigators have been told that if "Congress attempts to remove POTUS via the 25th Amendment a huge uprising will occur," says an FBI daily bulletin obtained by ABC News.

The FBI has also received information that pro-Trump extremists are also calling for the “storming” of state, federal and local government buildings and courthouses of the president is removed before Joe Biden’s inauguration.

Re: U.S Election 2020

Biden's view on gun control?

E.G:

Quote:
Reduce stockpiling of weapons. In order to reduce the stockpiling of firearms, Biden supports legislation restricting the number of firearms an individual may purchase per month to one.

The USA is one effed up country.

Quote:
FBI report warned of ‘war’ at Capitol, contradicting claims there was no indication of looming violence

A day before rioters stormed Congress, an FBI office in Virginia issued an explicit internal warning that extremists were preparing to travel to Washington to commit violence and “war,” according to an internal document reviewed by The Washington Post that contradicts a senior official’s declaration the bureau had no intelligence indicating anyone at last week’s pro-Trump protest planned to do harm.

A situational information report approved for release the day before the U.S. Capitol riot painted a dire portrait of dangerous plans, including individuals sharing a map of the complex’s tunnels, and possible rally points for would-be conspirators to meet up in Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and South Carolina and head in groups to Washington.

“As of 5 January 2021, FBI Norfolk received information indicating calls for violence in response to ‘unlawful lockdowns’ to begin on 6 January 2021 in Washington. D.C.,” the document says. “An online thread discussed specific calls for violence to include stating ‘Be ready to fight. Congress needs to hear glass breaking, doors being kicked in, and blood from their BLM and Pantifa slave soldiers being spilled. Get violent. Stop calling this a march, or rally, or a protest. Go there ready for war. We get our President or we die. NOTHING else will achieve this goal.”

Why not - some of them did nothing while others championed the destruction and torching of many businesses during BLM protests in Portland and other cities, usually in their own districts, you see Democrat run cities are a crime ridden disgrace. What has happened to New York is depressing under Democrat rule. No worry, the next 4 years of Democrat control will see America get considerably worse.

Oh and about that Facebook & Twitter banning Trump thing....

Uganda Government just blocked Facebook and Whatsapp and other social media sites in the country:

Quote:
@KagutaMuseveni
: ‘About the social platforms that blocked @NRMOnline users; these platforms should be used equitably, if you want to take any parts, then you can't operate in Uganda, because Uganda is our country, we can't accept them to decide who is good and who is bad.

Government of Uganda @GovUganda 28m ago
I apologize that @GovUganda has closed @Facebook in Uganda, this is very unfortunate but inevitable. If they are to operate here, they have to be equitable.’ #M7Address

Government of Uganda @GovUganda 32m ago
The President warns that if the social media channels like
@Facebook and @Twitter are not being friendly and equitable to some of the Ugandans, then there is no reason as to why we should have them operate here. @OfwonoOpondo #M7Address

Well.... yes, but perhaps not for the reason you might think.

The government of Uganda banned WhatsApp and Facebook, along with other social media platforms, to enforce a tax on the use of social media. Users are to be charged 200 shilling per day to access these services according to the new law set by parliament.
