       "Now that they have accomplished their mission the tech gods gave Donald Trump his Facebook page and Instagram account."

       NO! Absolutely NOT! That is not why Facebook returned those accounts to President Trump. They returned those accounts because they are 1) Under justified assault by powerful forces who want to break them up and remove their Section 230 protections, and 2) Their investors have to be beyond irate at the millions of money-making users they are losing and are going to lose, and 3) The possibility of going after them for CRIMINAL actions...all this not just in the U.S., but around the world.

DEVILS: Facebook Restores President Trump’s Page – Lists Him as “Political Candidate,” not President

Last week after protesters and activists stormed the US Capitol the tech giants colluded and decided to remove the President of the United States.

They said Trump was dangerous for challenging the election.

They said Trump was responsible for the rioting that included Trump supporters and left-wing organizers and agitators.

We now know the riots started before President Trump finished speaking to nearly one million supporters at the Ellipse in Washington DC.

The tech giants silenced the leader of the Free World.

It was the first coup of a US President in our storied history.

President Trump was silenced and isolated. Trump is planning on leaving Washington DC on Wednesday before the illegitimate inauguration.

Now that they have accomplished their mission the tech gods gave Donald Trump his Facebook page and Instagram account.

‘Gab’ CEO Pulls Off The Impossible For Trump...Completely Backed Up President Trump’s Twitter Account Before Deleted And Recreated Him On ‘Gab’

Gab CEO completely backed up President Trump’s Twitter account before it was deleted and recreated him on Gab.

What’s even more impressive is he did this while traffic was up 700% and under attack from leftists. Gab is currently having servers upgraded to handle the large influx in traffic but we’re told it should stabilize soon.

 
 

President Trump’s new account: https://gab.com/realdonaldtrump

Andrew Torba, the founder of Gab, said Monday that the free speech platform saw 600,000 new users in one day as President Donald Trump has been censored from most mainstream tech platforms.

“Our traffic is up 753% in the past 24 hours. Tens of millions of visits,” Gab said in response to slow loading speeds on the platform. To meet the rising demand, Gab said it would add ten new servers to its platform to alleviate congestion.

Gab started as the first free speech alternative to Twitter. Gab allows all legal speech except for pornography. Users can curate their own experience on Gab by creating custom filters. Gab also takes a hard stance against illegal content and incitement of violence.

Due to its free speech policy, Google and Apple have banned the Gab app from their app stores.

Gab has worked to become resilient from suppression from tech companies that no longer wish to host its domain. For instance, Gab hosts its own physical services to avoid censorship from cloud servicing companies such as Amazon Web Services.

The free speech company is also reportedly working on a Gab phone to circumvent app store censorship and spur competition in the mobile phone operating system markets.

        My how times have changed, when the U.S. needs to start learning moral lessons from Uganda.

Uganda Takes A Stand, Bans Facebook & Twitter From Internet After Censorship, Twitter Policy Has Meltdown

On Tuesday, Uganda punched back at Facebook and Twitter by banning them from the internet after the two companies started censoring Uganda officials ahead of the election in the country.

“We demand that @Facebook & @Twitter write directly to the individuals that lost their accounts. Since @Facebook cited @MoICT_Ug in their statement, let them write to us so that there’s a chance for a fair hearing. Accounts lost on Facebook belong to @GovUganda employees,” tweeted Uganda Media Centre.

Facebook and Twitter have conducted disgusting attacks on free speech in recent weeks against conservatives including President Donald Trump.

In response to Uganda’s decision to ban Twitter from their internet, Twitter Public Policy had the audacity to whine about the decision.

“Ahead of the Ugandan election, we’re hearing reports that Internet service providers are being ordered to block social media and messaging apps,” Twitter Pubic Policy tweeted. “We strongly condemn internet shutdowns – they are hugely harmful, violate basic human rights and the principles of the #OpenInternet.”

“Earlier this week, in close coordination with our peers, we suspended a number of accounts targeting the election in Uganda,” they admitted in the following tweet, clearly not recognizing the blatant hypocrisy in their comments. “If we can attribute any of this activity to state-backed actors, we will disclose to our archive of information operations.”

“Access to information and freedom of expression, including the public conversation on Twitter, is never more important than during democratic processes, particularly elections,” they added.

The move by Uganda was very similar to what happened in Idaho. An internet service provider in Idaho, Spokane and other parts of Washington has blocked Facebook and Twitter from its customers after the two platforms conducted a disgusting attack on free speech last week against President Donald Trump and his supporters.

The move will start on Wednesday according to a report by KREM 2 and will bar Facebook and Twitter from reaching their users on WIFI in these regions.

         "Parler claims Amazon colluded with Twitter to “kill Parler’s business."...“It’s hard to keep track of how many people are telling us that we can no longer do business with them,”

Amazon seeks to keep right-wing app Parler offline

Seattle-based Amazon.com, Inc. has asked a federal judge to deny a request to reinstate the cloud-service account for conservative social media network Parler. The company's lawyers on Tuesday claimed Parler shrugged off police violence content on its site before and after the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

The Seattle Times reported that Parler filed a lawsuit Monday against Amazon claiming a breach of contract and antitrust violation after its account was suspended. Attorneys for Amazon said the case was not about suppressing speech but about what they called Parler’s “demonstrated unwillingness” to remove content that threatens public safety.

Parler claims Amazon colluded with Twitter to “kill Parler’s business."

In an interview with Reuters, Parler CEO John Matze said that the platform may never be able to return.

“It could be never,” he said. “We don’t know yet.”

“It’s hard to keep track of how many people are telling us that we can no longer do business with them,” Matze added.

       "There is a group called UGNazi that is targeting me," Matze said, noting the controversial hacker group has released many of his passwords and personal information on the internet. "They published my street address, they threatened to come through my front door."

Parler CEO John Matze, family go into hiding after death threats

Social media app launched antitrust lawsuit against Amazon

A new court filing on Friday from the Parler legal team revealed its CEO John Matze and his family are now in hiding over death threats and security breaches they have faced. 

Parler, a social media app that has been widely embraced by Trump supporters, launched an antitrust lawsuit against Amazon after the tech giant discontinued its web services following last week's riots on Capitol Hill. Amazon filed a response, claiming it has "no legal basis" and alleged its employees have been faced with threats and harassment. 

The filing from Parler's lawyers obtained by Fox News acknowledges the disturbing claims made by Amazon but note that the Jeff Bezos-run company is not the one receiving threats.

"Although AWS’s motion to seal focuses only on its own employees, Parler’s employees have been similarly harassed and threatened," the filing read. "Parler’s CEO, John Matze, Jr., reports in his declaration in support of Parler’s TRO motion that many Parler employees are suffering harassment and hostility, fear for their safety and that of their families, and in some cases have fled their home state to escape persecution. 

"Matze himself, as the CEO of the company AWS continues to vilify, has had to leave his home and go into hiding with his family after receiving death threats and invasive personal security breaches," the filing continued. 

Earlier this week, Matze told Fox News about the various threats he has received and the measures he would take to protect his family. 

"There is a group called UGNazi that is targeting me," Matze said, noting the controversial hacker group has released many of his passwords and personal information on the internet. "They published my street address, they threatened to come through my front door."

He usually doesn’t take threats directed at him too seriously, he said. But this time he’s gone into hiding with his family.

        "The people rallied, called, emailed, went to the Governor’s mansion, the Capitol, Georgia Secretary of State’s offices all begging, demanding, pleading for Georgia state leaders to stop the mass mail-in ballots, do a forensic audit of the machines, and STOP THE STEAL!

Marjorie Taylor Greene DESTROYS Nasty GA Election Official Gabe Sterling After His Latest Smear on President Trump and Herself

Georgia elections official Gabriel Sterling is an unhinged Trump-hater who, along with Governor Kemp and Secretary of State Raffensperger, was able to flip the reliable red state blue in the 2020 election. Sterling’s failed policies also enabled a committed America-hating Marxist Raphael Warnock to defeat GOP Sentor Kelly Loeffler in a senate runoff.

The likelihood of a red state turning blue during the Trump years is nearly impossible but somehow Gabe Sterling and his cohorts managed this enabling corruption in both the US election and the senate runoff elections in January.

When voter fraud was caught on camera after the November election Gabriel Sterling lied and said this was normal practice.

~~~~~~~~~~~

On Sunday Gabe Sterling had the gall to blame President Trump and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green for the GOP Georgia senate losses. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was not having it. The Georgia lawmaker BLASTED dirty Gabe Sterling in a number of tweets.

This patriot is quickly becoming a rising star in the Trump world.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene: Morons like you are responsible for losing GA’s 2 Republican Senate seats. You ran a Nov 3rd election that was stolen because you idiots at the SOS mailed out millions of absentee ballots to anyone and everyone while GA was an open state. Then you counted ballots on Dominion voting machines (payed for by GA taxpayers) that can be hacked because they are hooked up to the internet. You ran an election like a third world country causing President Trump to lose GA, Senator Perdue to go into a run off, and Dr. Rich McCormick to lose in the 7th. Then you repeated the exact same dumb ass moves for the senate run offs on Jan 5th. In spite of Republican voters ALL over Georgia screaming their heads off to FIX IT!

The people rallied, called, emailed, went to the Governor’s mansion, the Capitol, Georgia Secretary of State’s offices all begging, demanding, pleading for Georgia state leaders to stop the mass mail-in ballots, do a forensic audit of the machines, and STOP THE STEAL! You arrogant jerks IGNORED THEM ALL even though it’s the Georgia tax payers that PAY FOR EVERYTHING!

So it was YOU ALL who refused to listen to Georgia voters/taxpayers, didn’t change a damn thing to GA’s easily stolen elections, and then handed off our 2 Republican senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue to the slaughter. You all did NOTHING to restore voter confidence for Georgia Republican voters after Nov 3rd going into Jan 5th senate runoffs, and then you have the audacity to blame me when the most conservative voters in the state flip you all the bird and tragically stay home? For your information Gabriel I’m not the one GA voters/taxpayers are blaming for handing over the President’s race AND our Senate seats to the Democrats on a silver platter. The cold hard truth – It was all of you who arrogantly sat on your ass, refusing to listen to the people who pay for everything, and changed nothing to these scam elections that turned Georgia’s 2 RED Senate seats blue. No matter how many of you RINO’s and political hacks cry to the pundits blowing your bs into the wind. When hundreds of people are signing affidavits at risk of perjuring themselves in a court of law with a penalty of going to jail, all to report election fraud, Georgia state leaders should have listened. These people had everything to lose if they were found to be lying while you all risk nothing and ignored their pleas while you blowhards collect a taxpayer funded paycheck. So little Gabriel, you can tweet all the stupid lies you want, but mark my words, Republican voters in Georgia know exactly who they are blaming.

It’s not Trump. And it ain’t me.

On Sunday afternoon Twitter suspended Rep. Taylor Greene for challenging the 2020 election results.

Parler Claims Amazon ‘Repeatedly Asked’ if President Donald Trump Joined Platform

Parler says in a legal filing that a representative from Amazon Web Services (AWS) had “repeatedly asked whether the President had joined or would join Parler now that he was blocked by Twitter and Facebook.”

In a lawsuit filed against Amazon on Monday, Parler says that the tech giant was “motivated by political animus,” and violated antitrust law when it booted the social media platform from its web hosting service.

Amazon claims that it kicked Parler offline because because words on the platform might “incite violence.”

In Parler’s latest legal filing against Amazon, the social media platform says that between January 6 and 8, “AWS expressed no concerns with Parler’s content moderation.”

Parler added that an “AWS representative repeatedly asked whether the President had joined or would join Parler now that he was blocked by Twitter and Facebook.”

On January 8, Twitter permanently banned President Donald Trump from its platform, claiming that his account may incite violence.

Two days later, Amazon knocked Parler offline, while large numbers of conservatives — including prominent media personalities — announced that they were moving from Twitter to Parler.

Amazon responded to Parler’s lawsuit on Tuesday, insisting that its “decision to suspend Parler is about nothing more than Parler’s demonstrated unwillingness and inability to remove from the servers of AWS content that threatens the public safety.”

Amazon’s justification for kicking Parler offline is part of a narrative that many big tech companies are now using to take action against the president, political dissenters, and their competition – while seeming to ignore content found on Twitter, such as, “Hang Mike Pence,” which was trending just last week.

“Furthermore, despite media attempts to tie Parler to the Capitol Riot, not one person that the news media has reported so far (as of the filing of this suit) was arrested for the riot has a Parler account,” added Parler in its lawsuit.

        "While the platform still has not become operational again, the message indicates that it will revive "soon."

         Interesting, but I'm not sure I would call it "resurfacing" until it can once again be utilized.

Parler resurfaces on Web, promises social media platform to be revived soon

"We will resolve any challenge before us and plan to welcome all of you back soon. We will not let civil discourse perish!" the company's website says.

The website of the social media platform Parler has resurfaced after going offline earlier this month. 

While the platform still has not become operational again, the message indicates that it will revive "soon."

"Now seems like the right time to remind you all — both lovers and haters — why we started this platform," the website says. "We believe privacy is paramount and free speech essential, especially on social media. Our aim has always been to provide a nonpartisan public square where individuals can enjoy and exercise their rights to both. We will resolve any challenge before mli us and plan to welcome all of you back soon. We will not let civil discourse perish!"

The platform vanished earlier this month after a move by Amazon Web Services. Buzzfeed reported that in a letter to Parler, the AWS Trust and Safety Team had stated "we cannot provide services to a customer that is unable to effectively identify and remove content that encourages or incites violence against others.”
