Jerry Bowyer: Target Aims Left

We all know that a radical minority holds sway in corporate culture today, but retail giant Target has generously shown us just how far this madness has gone.

After a single complaint from a Twitter user, Target removed Abigail Shrier’s book “Irreversible Damage” from its shelves. The book in question was smeared as “transphobic.” It is not. Shrier courageously points out the incredible damage radical transgender ideology can inflict on our children. While Target eventually reversed the ban, it is still a cause for outrage that a corporation of this size is so easily controlled by so few.

Banning books which object to sex changes for children is only possible in an organization beholden to the radical left. Shareholders need to demand viewpoint diversity in our corporations. If conservative shareholders fail to show up at annual meetings, or vote for (or against!) board members, book banning may be the least of our worries.

Owen Strachan: Twitter Has an Obligation to Protect Free Speech

It’s now become a normal event on Twitter. President Trump tweets something about election results, and Twitter leadership attaches a disclaimer to it: “This claim about election results is disputed.”

Most everyone is aware that the President has a lively presence on social media. Every citizen in this country is free to evaluate the President’s claims as they see fit. But Twitter should not be moderating the President’s tweets. Doing so is a weakening of free speech.

Twitter is a publicly held company but is still free to set its own rules. That does not mean that they don’t have a responsibility to promote free speech. Like higher education institutions, liberty either flourishes or goes to die in such settings.

Twitter should not act as the President’s self-appointed Big Brother. Twitter should let free speech be free, and leave it to citizens to figure out the rest.

Jerry Bowyer: Anti-Conservative Bias in Big-Tech

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.

Almost as soon as the article was published, Twitter and Facebook got to work trying to scrub it from existence. Both tech giants prevented users from posting the article—and even banned some who did.

It’s another example in a long line of anti-conservative bias in big-tech.

Their underlying motivation for suppressing this story is simple: they want Biden to win and Trump to lose, so any story bad for Biden must be thrown into the memory-hole.

We can debate whether there’s a necessity for government action—but we should absolutely see action from shareholders—investors who have the power to demand an explanation for big tech’s appalling censorship of inconvenient journalism.

Michael Medved: Message to Congress: Legislate, Don’t Investigate

To the intense disappointment of hyper-partisan Democrats, the Mueller Report delivered anti-climactic results: no evidence of Russian collusion and no new charges against Trump and his team.

Despite his complaints on Twitter and elsewhere, the president allowed Mueller to complete his investigative work without significant interference, so it’s time to put to rest the charges and counter-charges.

Democrats, however, intend to use Congressional Committees to continue investigating Trump’s personal and business history, and some Republicans talk of retaliatory investigations of Obama’s FBI and Justice Department. This waste of taxpayer money is not their primary job as lawmakers: we hire legislators to legislate, not investigate.

Those who want to drive Trump from the White House have only one way to do it: vote him out.

The desperation of Democrats to continue their scandal-mongering only displays their growing fear of crushing defeat in 2020.

Michael Medved: Trump Deserves Credit For The Strong Economy

Marijuana

Why do public opinion surveys show discontent with President Trump’s handling of the economy at a time of record highs in the stock market and record lows in unemployment? The new Gallup Poll gives Trump his highest ratings on the economy, but still shows a clear majority of voters disapproving of his economic record despite the steady growth in the 10 months of his presidency.

This reflects a liberal tendency to put ideology above practical results, but it also reflects continued discomfort with aspects of Donald Trump’s polarizing public personality. The President should avoid public feuds and distracting Twitter storms while focusing on the jobs and growth agenda that got him elected in the first place. Meanwhile, his GOP colleagues in Congress must pass tax reform to keep the economy booming while giving the administration the credit it deserves for sweeping deregulation, and pro-business policies that are producing real results for the American people.
