Website Domain Name Seizure (confiscation) is a sure fire way to stop political bias censorship. Last night I was thinking about what if. Just imagine President Trump executing an executive order to confiscate Twitter and Facebook domain names. Though this would piss off a lot of people, it’s probably not a good idea with only 15 days to election. But it’s got teeth as prosecutors say! ?
Many folks don’t know about domain name confiscation, but it’s well known to many that used the web to violate various laws. In the early 21st century, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) pursued the seizure of domain names, based on the legal theory that domain names constitute property used to engage in criminal activity, and thus are subject to forfeiture.
The problem here is, social media companies picking sides, democratic, and stifling republican and Trump supporters. Twitter recently accused the New York Post of spreading misinformation for sharing their story about Hunter Biden Ukraine & China connections.
The NY Post reports, Twitter’s senior executives have a long history of anti-Trump hatred, a Post review of dozens of accounts of top employees found. The venom, vitriol and, in some cases, vows to help Joe Biden across the finish line in next month’s presidential election continue to live online as the company earlier this week decided to censor The New York Post’s revelations about Hunter Biden’s emails to a consultant for the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.
“GET HIM OUT,” posted a senior site reliability engineer on Aug. 18. “What a f–king baboon.” One manager with almost nine years on the job said he was quite keen to watch Biden “crush [Trump] in the election” and that he hoped the president would “be utterly humiliated while also suffering greatly from #COVID19.” In another post he fantasized about the president being put on a ventilator. He calls Trump “a f–king idiot” and the voters who elected him — “hysterically f–king stupid people.”
Here we’re talking about big time election interference. Twitter and Facebook are the major sources for news these days. With these two companies taking sides censoring republicans and promoting democrats like Biden Harris, it don’t look like it will be a fair election.
