Social media censorship has reached a new low, with Twitter’s suppression of a New York Post story that looks bad for Biden. Last week, the Post published a report containing emails from Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, that suggest corruption on both their parts.

The collision with China has also put a new focus on Big Tech. These companies need to be pressed to side forthrightly and finally with the American republic that created the free minds and free markets that gave them birth.
“Phase Four” is shaping up to be the “law of a legislative lifetime.”
There’s no time to spare.Read More »
