Coss Posted May 29, 2020 Report Share Posted May 29, 2020 Faaaarrrk, here we go... Disclaimer, I am not a lawyer, especially, I have no professional knowledge, of American Law. I can however, read, those who cannot understand learning, may think this is, what Trump says it is. I think it was written by Barr, to appear, that it's what Trump wants, but it is legal smoke and mirrors that won't get to court and fail, until well after November. When it won't matter. You know Twitter and Facebook have bigger Lawyers than Barr, Barr's only advantage is Trump, ergo - failure. ______ "By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:" I would imagine that there is a proscribed wording for an "Executive Order", this may not be that wording. "Section 1. Policy. ..." This a preamble, that is a Trump Rant, written in Barr's legal nice words. No order here. He spits tacks at - Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. Representative Adam Schiff, China, and the Chinese Communist Party. further note: being the 1st bit, Trump will see tacks being spit and be satisfied that his commands are being obeyed. "Sec. 2. Protections Against Online Censorship. ..." This is just an explanation of existing Law. And like the Google directions, to get from one side of Tokyo to the other, there are multiple variations, with the same start and end. further note: Trump will have lost interest after section 1. "Sec. 3. Protecting Federal Taxpayer Dollars from Financing Online Platforms That Restrict Free Speech. ... " The bean counting bit. further note: Trump will have lost interest. "Sec. 4. Federal Review of Unfair or Deceptive Acts or Practices. ..." "(a)" The USA wants Twitter etc, not to restrict free speech, free speech is important. "(b)" In 2019 the White House received over 16,000 complaints of online platforms censoring or otherwise taking action against users based on their political viewpoints. The White House will submit such complaints received to the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Ahh, when? Tuesday? 2034? next week? Ho hum. "(c)" and "(d)" will do stuff, can do stuff. Ho Hum. further note: Trump will have lost interest, but if he does get this far, it looks like action! "Sec. 5. State Review of Unfair or Deceptive Acts or Practices and Anti-Discrimination Laws. ..." Working Group will do stuff, public information will be examined, people will be examined based on their interactions with other users. Check the algorithms. Have a look see at: Chinese Communist Party or other anti-democratic associations or governments; third-party entities, including contractors, media organizations, and individuals, with bias. The ability of users with particular viewpoints to earn money off this stuff. further note: Trump will have lost interest. "Sec. 6. Legislation." and "Sec. 7. Definition." Dot i and cross t, plural. further note: Trump will have lost interest. "Sec. 8. General Provisions. ..." The word "order is used twice in this section, which is essentially saying that this "order" won't stop the government doing, what it normally does. further note: having skipped the middle bits Trump will see "order". Twice, see? Yay!. _____ https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/executive-order-preventing-online-censorship/ _____ Summary: this "order" says, we're gonna make a working group, you know, like a committee.
