Government Control of the Internet

Of course, they want to control the Internet, meaning censorship of their enemies - meaning Conservatives and Anti-Vaxxers.

And who is the driving force behind the Government Takeover of Social Media ...

Barack Obama Backs Internet Controls to Grapple with the ‘Demand for Crazy’


Government regulation and control over the internet can defeat a “demand for crazy” through the spread of incorrect messages, former President Barack Obama said Wednesday.

Obama, 60, spoke with Atlantic editor Jeffrey Goldberg at an event hosted by the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics and the magazine.

“I do think that there is a demand for crazy on the internet that we have to grapple with,” Obama said, before adding a mix of regulation and industry standards are needed to address the issue.

Obama lamented how misinformation plays out across the U.S., accusing those who say President Joe Biden did not win the 2020 election as guilty of falling for conspiracy theories.

He called out “a systematic effort to either promote false information, to suppress true information, for the purpose of political gain, financial gain, enhancing power, suppressing others, targeting those you don’t like.”

The former president blamed smartphones for accelerating “an erosion of accountability norms and standards in political life” from 2010 onwards.

Once the creation of social media occurred, the type of rhetoric was able to “spread and accelerate,” he said, putting those who challenge medical opinions on coronavirus vaccinations as suffering from the same delusions.

“Roughly 40 percent of the country appears convinced that the current president was elected fraudulently and that the election was rigged” he claimed, with about 30-35 percent rejecting vaccines for coronavirus which he called a “medical miracle” that had been clinically tested by a billion people.

The former president appeared to be citing a Axios-Momentive poll from January which found 40 percent of Americans still do not believe Biden is the legitimate winner of his 2020 election against Trump.

My side is pushing back - as if that ever does any good ...

‘Unconstitutional and Should Be Dissolved Immediately’: Josh Hawley Slams Biden’s Disinformation Board


“At first thought this announcement was satire,” Hawley wrote to Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas. “Surely no American Administration would ever use the power of Government to sit in judgement on the First Amendment speech of its own citizens.”

“Sadly, I was mistaken. Rather than protecting our border or the American homeland, you have chosen to make policing Americans’ speech your priority. This new board is almost certainly unconstitutional and should be dissolved immediately,” he continued.

Hawley characterized the appointed head of the board, Nina Jankowicz, as a radical Democrat, and cited her suggestion that Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell” was Russian disinformation. Just last week, Jankowicz referenced Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter and noted concern that “free speech absolutists were taking over more platforms.”

“By all means, let’s regulate social media. But let’s do it with proper thought and consultation, with the nation’s best interests at heart, not with the sweep of a sharpie in response to a specter of ‘political censorship’ that doesn’t exist,” Jankowicz tweeted in 2019.

Hawley also criticized Jankowicz for claiming Donald Trump has fomented “homegrown fascism,” along with alleging America is a systemically racist nation.

Hawley concluded the goal of Biden’s disinformation board is to use the federal government to censor Americans on social media platforms. The Biden administration announced the board just days after Elon Musk inked the purchase of Twitter.

“While Democrats have for years controlled the public square through their big tech allies, Mr. Musk’s acquisition of Twitter has shown just how tenuous that control is,” he said. “It can only be assumed that the sole purpose of this new Disinformation Governance Board will be to marshal the power of the federal government to censor conservative and dissenting speech.”


The Administration that activated the FBI against parents at school board meetings now has created a government Disinformation Board to monitor all Americans’ speech. It’s a disgrace. Joe Biden & Secretary Mayorkas: dissolve this monstrosity immediately
