Congratulations to the Texas Governor!

"Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Sunday signed a sweeping new law that aims to protect free speech on college campuses across the Lone Star state.

“Some colleges are banning free speech on college campuses,” the governor said in a video released on Twitter on Sunday as he signed the bill. “Well, no more. Because I am about to sign a law that protects free speech on college campuses in Texas.”

“Shouldn’t have to do it. First Amendment guarantees it,” he added. “Now, it’s law in Texas.” https://www.thecollegefix.com/texas-governor-signs-sweeping-new-law-protecting-free-speech-on-college-campuses/

Now, how do we deal with the issue of protecting "free speech on the internet", and eliminating the gestapo tactics and demonitization activities of Google, Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Pinterest, and Youtube?

If it was not for today's liberals none of this would be necessary. They are the greatest haters of the Constitution as intended by our founders, especially the Bill of Rights.

Classic liberals (like the founders) would be behind the Texas governor. Somewhere along the way progressives took over the leadership of the democrat party. We need classic liberals to take it back.

Hows that constitutional rule of law breaking Trump thing working for you? How is it that you can't see that a president cannot impede and obstruct congress if they are looking into violations of the law, namely obstruction?

Wood, I could write a post about alien moon beams that have bad breath, and you would somehow find a way to work in some derogatory remark about Trump. Give it a rest man.

Yes, it is ALWAYS the liberals that want to destroy free speech, NEVER the conservatives.



Donald Trump pushed for censorship and a loosening of libel laws (to better be able to sue with less grounds) over unflattering media coverage. The article linked below is from a conservative source explaining the troubling attempts by Trump to censor the media and an attempt to overstep regulations in regards to the FCC. It does not cover Trump's musings on trying to loosen libel laws though even though both subjects were brought up at same time by Trump himself some time back.

https://www.nationalreview.com/2017/10/donald-trump-first-amendment-dangerous-misunderstanding-federal-communications-commission/ (A conservative media outlet)

Donald Trump tried to sue Univision due to them choosing NOT to air the Miss USA pageant over remarks Trump himself made that they disapproved of. Trump foolishly claimed 1st amendment infringement on his freedom of speech but public and private businesses are not bound by 1st amendment restrictions, only the government is.

How about we jump into our little time machine and go back and look in on the late 60's, early 70's? Whoa, who do we have here? Richard (tricky dickie) Nixon, surely he being a Republican, he would be a fierce supporter of the first amendment wouldn't he be?

Oops, https://mtsu.edu/first-amendment/article/1426/richard-m-nixon I guess not, but man did he LOVE the 5th amendment.


I can't help but to notice much similarity between Nixon and Trump, especially in regards to the media.
