Kennedy Grills Tech CEOs: “Get Out of the Censorship Business; People Aren’t Morons; Let People Decide What to Believe” If Not You’re A Publisher WASHINGTON, D.C. – At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday entitled “Breaking the News: Censorship, Suppression, and the 2020 Election,” Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey – CEOs of Facebook and Twitter, respectively – were questioned at one point by Louisiana Senator John Kennedy on censorship and content moderation on the two powerful social media platforms. The hearing was a continued look at possible reform of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act – which currently does not hold internet service providers responsible for the content of third-party users – and how it would affect the concept of free speech on the internet. Kennedy, a former Democrat turned Republican, at first complimented the two CEOs, stating that he was “proud of the fact that it was American ingenuity” that lead to their success; success, Kennedy said, that also lead to Twitter and Facebook possessing incredible power. Both Democrats and Republicans have accused Twitter and Facebook of actively engaging in censorship of certain information and viewpoints on their social media platforms, an opinion that Kennedy reiterated to Zuckerberg and Dorsey. --Kennedy Grills Tech CEOs: “Get Out of the Censorship Business; People Aren’t Morons; Let People Decide What to Believe” If Not You’re A Publisher – The Published Reporter® --https://www.publishedreporter.com/2020/11/19/fundamental-kennedy-grills-tech-ceos-get-out-of-the-censorship-business-people-arent-morons-let-people-decide-what-to-believe-if-not-youre-a-publisher/ -RETRIEVED-Sat Nov 21 2020 17:21:11 GMT+0100 (Central European Standard Time)

PM Orbán: George Soros is the most corrupt politician on the global scene Following an article from George Soros demanding that the EU use rule-of-law sanctions to punish Hungary and Poland, PM Orban has responded Billionaire financier George Soros, the most corrupt man in global politics, is now threatening Hungary and Poland, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said in his regular weekly interview on national station Kossuth Rádió on Friday. "The most corrupt man in world politics, George Soros, pays a lot of politicians, including those who now want to blackmail Hungary and Poland with EU money," Orbán said. He added that it is not an unusual phenomenon to be able to spread a lie about Hungary unscrupulously, but Soros' claim that there is no secret ballot in some rural settlements in Hungary "goes beyond everything". He was referring to the fact that in an op-ed article entitled "Europe must stand up to Hungary and Poland" on Project Syndicate, a website largely financed by his Open Society Foundation, Soros wrote that "Orbán exercises almost total control over the countryside, where the majority of the population lives. He controls the information they receive, and voting in many villages is not secret. There is practically no way the opposition can prevail." Referring to Thursday's European Union summit, Orbán said that "with regard to the EU background negotiations, several solutions are possible, but the point is that the legal aspect should not be decided by policy. For example, their regular ambassadors from Hungary, tear down the fence, but the union has no right to do so, there is no regulation that can change that." He also said that "Soros now wants a law that would force a minority to impose this on the country... We are resisting this, we have a right to do so, but Brussels has no means of enforcing this, that is what Soros's paid minions want to change now." Orbán added that "it is not about the Union wanting to give money to poorer member states, but about a common 30-year loan with common ground. If one country falls, the other countries will have to pay their debt. Hungary can raise money even without the union, as it is creditworthy independent of Brussels." Orban also explained why his government was left with little choice but to veto the EU's seven-year budget and the coronavirus recovery fund, with the EU's decision to tie rule of law funding to EU funding representing a threat to the sovereignty to not only Hungary and Poland but all member states of the EU. "Neither Hungary nor Poland are withdrawing subsidies with their veto," Orbán said. According to Viktor Orbán, Hungary will not lose its share of the joint loan of the EU." "We can implement all the developments. Development programs will be launched in the spring, independently of Brussels," Orbán said, adding that while he was not happy about the recent loan Hungary had to take out, the financial reserve was necessary because of the EU policy debate. The new loan was also made possible by expiration of one of the country’s previous loans, he said. --PM Orbán: George Soros is the most corrupt politician on the global scene --https://rmx.news/article/article/pm-orban-george-soros-is-the-most-corrupt-politician-on-the-global-scene -RETRIEVED-Sat Nov 21 2020 15:48:55 GMT+0100 (Central European Standard Time)

#islamicterrorism #sharia #netherlands #geertwilders Netherlands: Geert Wilders to PM Rutte: You have imported a monster called Islam into our country! (VIDEO) “So it’s not just a few rotten apples who make other Muslims look bad...This is large majority of 700,000 [out of 900,000] who reject our free society.” said Wilders Geert Wilders, the leader of the populist Party for Freedom (PVV) in the Netherlands, slammed liberal Prime Minister Rutte during a recent debate over freedom of expression in the Dutch parliament, saying that his pro-mass migration policies have allowed for the importation of a “monster called Islam into our country.” The words from parliamentary leader of PVV in the Dutch House of Representatives come weeks after the spate of deadly Islamic terror attacks in Austria and France, including the beheading of Samuel Paty — a French history teacher who showed a picture of the Islamic prophet Muhammad during a lesson on freedom of expression in his class. Before addressing Dutch prime minister directly, Wilders opened up the debate by recounting the Islamic attacks and threats that have occurred in recent weeks. The right-wing populist leader also commented on Amsterdam imam Yassin Elforkani, who late last month called on Dutch lawmakers to adopt legislation that would criminalize any insult aimed at the Islamic prophet. Imam Ismail Abou Soumayyah, a known Salafist extremist of the Quba mosque in The Hague, recently launched a petition which calls on the Dutch government to adopt Sharia blasphemy laws. The petition has reached well over the 40,000 signatures required which can, in theory, force a debate in the House of Representatives. During his address, Wilders refuted claims often parroted by liberal politicians like Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, that only a small minority of Muslim immigrants in the Netherlands and Europe support terrorism and reject secular democracy. “So it’s not just a few rotten apples who make other Muslims look bad,” Wilders began. “I say to the prime minister, stop pushing this nonsense fairy tale. This is large majority of 700,000 [out of 900,000] who reject our free society.” --Netherlands: Geert Wilders to PM Rutte: You have imported a monster called Islam into our country!
