Check out what’s clicking on FoxBusiness.com. A federal appeals court in Texas has reinstated a Republican -backed Texas law that prevents large social media companies from banning users over their political views .
The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel did not explain its reasoning for granting the state’s request for a stay of a December order from a federal judge. The order also did not evaluate the law on its constitutionality. It merely allows the law to go back into effect while the case continues in the lower district court.
MISSOURI AG TARGETS BIDEN, BIG TECH IN FREE SPEECH LAWSUIT: TAKING ON THE ‘BIGGEST, MOST CORRUPT INSTITUTIONS’ The decision is a win for Republicans who have accused social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter of being biased against conservatives. A flashpoint on the issue came when Former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account was permanently suspended days after he was accused of inciting the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill.
The law, known as HB 20, requires social media platforms with more than 50 million monthly users to publicly disclose information about content removal and account suspensions.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s office praised the appeals court’s decision, calling it a “BIG WIN against BIG TECH.”
The tweet went on to say, “The 5th Circuit made the right call here, and I look forward to continuing to defend the constitutionality of #HB20.”
Two industry trade groups that represent companies like Google and Twitter sued to block the law last fall.
A judge then ruled in favor of the groups, blocking the law while the lawsuit continues, saying the First Amendment protects a company’s right to moderate content, according to The Texas Tribune. AG Paxton then appealed the judge’s decision.Florida is also appealing a ruling against a similar law. Censorship on social media has taken […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
