Sharia Law has come to Twitter

Twitter, has taken to Sharia Law. Or at least their legal department is informing twitter users that they need to seek legal counsel regarding their tweet because users Tweets are in violation of Pakistan law.

One such user of Twitter, Michelle Malkin, conservative journalist, author, political commentator and business woman is under attack due to her commentary. As Michelle points out on her twitter account,” I’ve been #SiliconValleySharia -ed. Here’s the notice Twitter’s legal dept sent me last week, warning me to get legal counsel because anti-blasphemy Muslim zealots complained that my Mohammed Cartoons tweet violates Pakistan’s laws.”

Michelle Malkin Shariaed tweet

Twitter’s legal department should beg the question, as to why Twitter is following Pakistan Law. Malkin’s offending tweet featuring images of Muhammad:

Michelle Malkin offending tweet

CNN reported that, “While the Quran does not explicitly prohibit depictions of Mohammad, most contemporary Muslims worldwide abide by the ban, based largely on religious rulings by Islamic scholars.” So why the uproar with respect to the depiction of Muhammad?

Other Conservative anti-sharia advocates have received the same twitter notice this violates Pakistan Law. Among those is Author Pamela Geller, who received death threats for her “Draw Muhammad” contest. This event in Garland Texas drew the ire of two men whom, “armed with assault rifles drove up to the venue and began shooting.” Luckily no one was killed.

This Pakistan law threat is apparently common. According to the Straight’s Times, “the notices, which came about as a result of “valid requests from an authorized entity”, helped users “to take measures to protect their interests”, and the process is not unique to any one country.” Begging the question, does Pakistan now own twitter’s interests?

When AFP news agency reached out to question Twitter, a spokesperson for twitter responded with, “In our continuing effort to make our services available to people everywhere, if we receive a valid requests from an authorized entity, it may be necessary to withhold access to certain content in a particular country from time to time.” Furthermore, Pakistan has threatened to block Twitter if the company did not remove content its government found offensive.

How long until, social media giants decide to follow sharia law and prohibit any dissenting opinions on the subject of religious worship? Will Americans simply tailor their comments to the likes of that which appeases Islamic dogma? Or will they continue to hold the 1st Amendment?

We want to know your opinion. Do you believe in the first Amendment? Or should religious doctrine rule for followers of Sharia where social media is concerned?

Has Big Tech Gone too Far?

Donald Trump Jr. the son of President Trump, recently wrote an op ed in real clear politics, where he laid claim that Instagram censored him over a comment he made regarding Jussie Smollett. Smollett, the actor who orchestrated a hate crime hoax according to the Chicago police department. Trump Jr. pointed out how unbelievable Smollett’s accusation was in the first place.

Trump Jr. Stated, “As Jussie Smollett’s preposterous story about being beaten in a racist, homophobic attack was falling apart, I posted about it on Facebook-owned Instagram, pointing out how unbelievable his allegation was in the first place.”

“After I let my followers know my thoughts on the Smollett hoax, I received a notification that Instagram deleted my post.”donald trump Jr. Instagram regarding smollett

Donald trump Jr. Instagram cont.

Instagram apologized for removing his post, however it begs the question. Has big tech gone too far?

Many conservative sites have been de-monetized by YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. And several have had their platforms removed.

According to Western Journal, Facebook eliminated “over 559 political pages and 251 accounts in a clamp down on what the social media company calls “inauthentic behavior” in the lead-up to the midterm elections.” Groups such as Right Wing News, Molon Labe Industries, and Overpasses For America have been completely eliminated from the Face Book platform.

Prager U which has been censored by YouTube, made the statement. “Conservative ideas are under attack. YouTube does not want young people to hear conservative ideas as they currently list over 80 PragerU videos– over 10 percent of our entire library–under “restricted mode” making it difficult for many young people to access our videos.”

Activist Mommy, had her Twitter account suspended after she criticized a Teen Vogue editor who approved of publishing an article that encouraged youth to have anal sex. Grace Johnson had her twitter account suspended under Twitter terms and conditions of harassment, for criticizing the editor of Teen Vogue for promoting Anal sex for teens.

Marsha Blackburn, Republican Congresswoman of Tennessee had a Twitter Ad censored because of her Pro-Life stance. Talking about de-funding Planned Parenthood.

Google, Internet behemoth has even taken part in the algorithm as they have been adjusting their searches based on progressive ideals. Making finding conservative outlets more difficult to retrieve on their search engine.

There are approximately 325.7 million Americans and with 2/3 using social media to search for news and information, it is important that they be exposed to an alternate opinion than what the social media giants have imposed. The type of censorship they have been imposing on Americans is similar to the type of censorship of communist countries. Congress has been ineffective in stopping the censorship of these social media giants.

Is it time that social media be governed under the principles of the second Amendment, or maybe an alternative media be introduced to compete with that of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram? Despite the growth and success of Gab.AI, they were temporarily suspended due to outrage over their inability to effectively censor someone who later went on a shooting rampage killing several people worshiping at a synagogue.

Is it safe to say, that the United States is being held hostage to the social media giants who are censoring conservative articles and opinion? Also, what are the effective alternatives to such said censorship? Without proper information how can anyone make an informed decision regarding their future?

Robert Kraft Caught up in Human Trafficking Sting Operation

Robert Kraft, owner of the Superbowl championship winner’s New England Patriots has been charged with solicitation. Kraft is being criminally charged with soliciting prostitutes at a spa in Florida.

According to T.C. Palm, The NFL owner was charged with paying for sexual services at Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter. “The spa was among 10 shut down in the Orlando area, Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast after a several-month investigation revealed women there were in “sexual servitude,” according to arrest records.”

Based on the timing, it would appear that Kraft has been caught up in a sting targeting a human trafficking ring that has connections from China to New York and Florida, according to Martin County Sheriff William Snyder.

Snyder said Chinese women held in the spas were involved in “graphic sexual activity, very risky behavior.” They had no access to transportation and were moved from location to location.

“It was clear that multiple women were working and living inside the spas. They were cooking on the back steps of the business,” Snyder said. “They were sleeping in the massage parlor on the massage tables.” Snyder said what has been revealed so far is “the tip of the tip of the iceberg.”

ISIS Bride wants to come to US

The United States will not admit a woman who left her home in Alabama to join the terror group ISIS.  as President Trump tweeted out, “I have instructed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and he fully agrees, not to allow Hoda Muthana back into the Country!”

President Trump - Hoda Muthana tweet

Muthana, 24, left Alabama four years ago to join ISIS. While studying Business at the University of Alabama, she told her family, she had a field trip to Atlanta where she boarded a plane to Turkey. From Turkey, she ended up in Syria and within a month of being in Syria, she was married.

Buzz Feed did an extraordinary interview with Hoda, about her lying to her parents, her first marriage to a mujahid, fighter, and her family’s reaction to Hoda leaving her family for ISIS.

Muthana, who used her social media to urge attacks on Americans; Writing, “Americans wake up! Men and women altogether. You have much to do while you live under our greatest enemy, enough of your sleeping!” In another tweet, she demanded, “Go on drivebys, and spill all of their blood, or rent a big truck and drive all over them. Veterans, Patriots, Memorial, etc day… Kill them.”

Muthana now wants to re-enter the United States as a citizen. In an interview, she believes that with psychological training she can re-trained and be a useful member of American society. Claiming she has been traumatized by her experience, and she no longer feels the way she felt when she was “brainwashed” by a secret Twitter Network. She is hoping that America comes to get her because she was young and ignorant.

The US State department lays claim that “Ms. Hoda Muthana is not a U.S. citizen and will not be admitted into the United States. She does not have any legal basis, no valid U.S. passport, no right to a passport nor any visa to travel to the United States.” However lawyer for the Muthana family, Hassan Shibly, insisted Muthana was born in the United States and had a valid passport before she joined the Islamic State in 2014. He says she has renounced the terrorist group and wants to come home to protect her 18-month-old son regardless of the legal consequences.

Law and Crime a Dan Abrams Production agrees with Shibly. Stating on the Law and Crime website, “This matters here because Muthana is seeking to return to the United States. If she’s a citizen, she simply cannot be barred from re-entering the country. If it’s determined that she broke any U.S. laws–which seems fairly likely–then she should and will, of course, be prosecuted for breaking those laws. But if she’s a citizen, the government can’t simply declare that she’s not allowed in. That’s not how America works”

The Senate Bill 361 ads a different perspective to situation facing Muthana, citing, Under current law the State Dept. can revoke the U.S. nationality of Americans who formally renounce their citizenship, become citizens of or pledge allegiance to foreign nations, engage in hostilities against the U.S., or are convicted of treason. This legislation would expand that list to include the following actions as grounds for the loss of U.S. citizenship:

-Taking an oath or making a declaration of allegiance to a foreign terrorist organization after attaining the age of 18;

-Entering, or serving in, a foreign terrorist organization;

-Becoming a member of, or providing training or material assistance to, a foreign terrorist organization;

-Accepting, serving in, or performing the duties of any office, post, or employment under the government of a foreign state or political subdivision, or a foreign terrorist group if the person knowingly declares allegiance to that government or group.

What are your thoughts. Should she be allowed into the US for the possibility of facing charges of treason? Or should America be more compassionate and forgive her for her actions?

Bob Menendez Threatens Police Action on Daily Caller Reporter

After being cleared from legal charges of bribery and corruption, Bob Menendez (D) New Jersey got some much unwanted press again. Apparently, Menendez thinks the press is worthy of police action.

In a fiery exchange between Henry Rogers of the Daily Caller, when Rogers asked Menendez to comment on the “Green New Deal” Menendez refused to answer. Following up with a question from Rogers intern, Menendez, had nothing short of a “temper tantrum”, calling the Daily Caller “trash”. Audio can be heard here.

“I am wondering why you won’t answer questions on the Green New Deal?” Rodgers asked.

Menendez responded with, “I won’t answer questions to the Daily Caller, period! You’re trash!”

Daily Caller reporter followed with, “Why do you think we are trash sir?”

“Don’t keep harassing me anymore or I’ll race to the Capitol Police,” Menendez responded.

Twitter was quick to respond to Menendez police action as James Woods, actor and political activist pointed out, “Democracy Dies in Darkness, unless you don’t like the news source, then call the police…”

James Woods on bob menendez

Dana Loesch, spokeswoman for NRA was quick to point out the hypocrisy making the claim, ” I was told that any criticism of the press was an un-American attack on free speech, though? Or has that standard changed?

Dana Loesh

Apparently, the congressman thinks its acceptable to grant an impromptu interview to reporters that paint his escapades in a favorable light, but an outlet that gives a more balanced view of congress is worthy of legal attention?

Did Bob Menendez over react, or is this going to be the new norm for Congress? Calling the police when confronted by a news outlet that they disagree with? We want your opinion. Feel free to leave a comment at admin@wecunews.com
