The war against Silicon Valley has begun

https://www.bloombergquint.com/business/2018/09/22/draft-order-for-trump-would-crack-down-on-google-facebook#gs.fK7N7ec

(Bloomberg) -- The White House has drafted an executive order for President Donald Trump’s signature that would instruct federal antitrust and law enforcement agencies to open probes into the practices of Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Facebook Inc., and other social media companies.

The order is in its preliminary stages and hasn’t yet been run past other government agencies, said a White House official. Bloomberg News obtained a draft of the order.

White House Drafts Order to Look Into Google, Facebook
The document instructs U.S. antitrust authorities to “thoroughly investigate whether any online platform has acted in violation of the antitrust laws.” It instructs other government agencies to recommend within a month after it’s signed, actions that could potentially “protect competition among online platforms and address online platform bias.”

The document doesn’t name any companies. If signed, the order would represent a significant escalation of Trump’s aversion to Google, Facebook, Twitter and other social media companies, whom he’s publicly accused of silencing conservative voices and news sources online.

The press offices of Google, Facebook and Twitter didn’t respond Saturday to emails and telephone calls requesting comment outside of normal office hours.

Trump’s Complaint
“Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices,” Trump said on Twitter in August. “Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won’t let that happen. They are closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others.”

Millennials as a generation have zero understanding the the Internet as they know it can, and likely will, be crushed by combined government action and female prudishness. 50 years from now, historians will tsk-tsk as they look back and admire the naiveté of the people running these companies, as they are frog-marched in handcuffs off to jail.

Related, a few days ago a Citi analyst recommended Amazon split into two companies to avoid Antitrust concerns:

Citi Research reiterates its buy rating for Amazon shares, saying a company split up would increase shareholder value.

"By separating the retail and AWS businesses, Amazon could minimize or avoid the risk of increased regulatory pressure," analyst Mark May says.

Hope facebook, tinder/bumble and instagram get banned. Anything that will limit the amount of time women spend on social media.

Men in Silicon Valley desperately need to read Roosh's book, 'Game'. Maybe Day Bang and Bang too. Would like to see pick up artist youtube videos from Mountain View, Redwood, San Jose and Palo Alto

Other than brute-force bans on women communicating through electronic means (by their men or their government), there's nothing we can do about that, I fear. And even if something like that happened, some genius/asshole would figure out a way around it and get incredibly rich from inventing a new way to exploit female nature, and we'd be back at square one in re: digital-attention addiction.

Sad, but true about the true nature of women and their digital-attention addiction.

Its 2018 almost 2019 and I still have to use facebook game on girls in other states and countries :-/ :(

Fcuk social media and online game. Its draining and a waste of time.

What bias ( and possibly law breaking) on the part of twitter . This needs to spread and Trump needs to hit these sick leftist tech nerds like Dorsey hard.

Apparently Twitter allowed a paid advertisement promoting FGM ( female genital mutilation) . The promotional tweet from "Dawoodi Borha woman for religious freedom" , a Muslim group , went viral circulating 30,000 times.

Here is the text from The Detroit Free Press :
https://www.freep.com/story/news/lo...twitter-female-genital-mutilation/1382539002/


Female genital mutilation has been condemned worldwide.

So how did a paid ad promoting female genital cutting of children wind up on Twitter?

That's what many social activists and Twitter users are wondering as the promotional tweet went viral last week, circulating 30,000 times.

The tweet was posted by the Dawoodi Bohra Women for Religious Freedom — a small Indian Muslim group whose religious beliefs are at the center of the nation's first genital mutilation case in Detroit. The tweet justified 'khafz' — or female circumcision — on young girls and featured a video of a group member saying:

"My daughters have also undergone khafz, and they’re growing up as perfectly as other children of their age. As a mother, I can never do anything to harm them."

Because the video tweet was promoted, it popped up in feeds of users who don’t follow the religious group, blindsiding many who blasted the message — and the social media giant.

Sorry, what?! Twitter is carrying an ad FOR female genital mutilation?” wrote one user.

Another wrote: “@Twitter I do hope you can recognize that allowing people to promote female genital cutting or mutilation is a human rights violation and that you will ensure our community standards uphold human rights.”

One Twitter user directed a message to the mother in the video: “Speak for yourself woman. Don’t speak on behalf of innocent girls. FGM is FGM no matter how you want (to) sugar coat it. Leave alone cutting – even touching the female genitalia of a girl is still child abuse.”

Twitter did not return requests for comment. As of Thursday, the tweet was no longer promoted, but it still exists on the Dawoodi Bohra group’s site – a fact that frustrates Boston-based social activist Mariya Taher.

Taher, a Bohra who was subjected to genital cutting when she was 7, has for years fought to end female genital mutilation worldwide. She wants Twitter to close the account of the Dawoodi Bohra Women for Religious Freedom group, arguing it supports a practice that violates human rights.

"It’s still a form of harm to children. And it’s being done without their consent,” Taher said of genital cutting, arguing Twitter shouldn’t provide a platform to promote it.

“I do wonder how this cannot be a violation of Twitter's safety and security rules,” Taher said. “I believe Twitter can and should have higher standards and be a company that does not unintentionally promote gender-based violence.”

But the Dawoodi Bohras maintain they are not harming anyone. They do not support female genital mutilation, they say, but rather practice a procedure that is minor and involves only a nicking of the clitoral hood. They say it's not done to suppress a woman's sexuality, but as a requirement for purity.

We hope that the U.S. understands that khafz is not FGM," the Dawoodi Bohra Women for Religious Freedom has previously said in a letter to the Free Press. "It does not mutilate, it does not harm. Our faith would never advocate anything that harms. Khafz is far less invasive than male circumcision that is legal in the U.S."

Activists fighting to end all forms of female circumcision don’t buy it, especially those who have undergone the procedure. Neither does the federal government, which is pursuing the first female genital mutilation case in Michigan, where eight Dawoodi Bohras are facing charges for the cuttings of eight young girls.

The lead defendant is Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, 45, of Northville, who is charged with cutting the genitals of nine girls, though prosecutors have estimated she performed genital mutilation on at least 100 girls over a 12-year period. Her co-defendants include a doctor who let her use her clinic to perform the procedures, two women who assisted her and four mothers.

Prosecutors have now identified nine victims in the case: two 7-year-old girls from Minnesota; four Michigan girls ages 8-12, and three Illinois girls. According to court records, one of the Michigan girls was given Valium ground up in liquid Tylenol during her procedure in 2015.

While I would love to think back to the great "breakups" of the past - ahhhh Standard Oil - My mind is more inclined to turn to more recent events.

Lest we forget, in 1999 Microsoft was found to be a monopoly and was ordered to break up in to (at least) two separate companies. Almost twenty years later, that never happened. Perhaps the problem with the current state of affairs is that we (the public) lack the collective grit to force our elected officials to clean these companies up. We are too divided and too distracted - often by the very companies that we might wish to clean up. I wonder if there is a connection there?

Yes! This is the Trump we've voted for and celebrated two years ago after he sent the witch to the pastures...

It would be interesting to see how far Goolag and Twatter shares are going to drop Monday morning.

PayPal banned me for political incorrectness back in 2014 so I hope they're first to be lined up against the wall.

I feel ahead of the curve really.

Well PayPal is worthless anyway because ZeroHedge posted an article reckoning digital payments will soon be virtually free.

Hah - Standard Oil was broken up and the Rockefellers essentially kept their shares in the new companies.

I would be fine with simple free-speech regulation.
Fuck offensive content! Fuck racism and all other allegations like homophobia, transphobia, pedophobia, Islamophobia, anti-semitism.

If you are offended, then mute someone you stupid cunt.

They should only ban content that promotes violence - as in real violence like - "let's kill all black or white people". Now the people making the first statement are banned while the other ones are allowed to keep their blue check mark.

Aside from that pedophile and criminal content is to be banned.

At this point of censorship you can be happy if they let the ones who disagree politely stay online.

I have stayed away from David Icke because I don't want to hear about shape-shifting lizard people, but he put out an excellent video that explains how what is happening to the internet now was the plan all along.


They only started pulling the plug once the internet become central to our lives and their natural monopolies cemented.
