President Trump said Wednesday that he will “strongly regulate” or even “close down” social media platforms, one day after Twitter flagged two of his posts.
The president made the vow on Twitter after the social media platform added a message to the tweets that linked to a page disputing the accuracy of his posts.
Trump and other conservatives argue that social media is censuring or silencing their messages.
In the two flagged tweets, Trump warned that mail-in voting is ripe for fraud, particularly in California.
Trump, in response to Twitter fact-checking his tweets, tweeted Tuesday: “@Twitter is now interfering in the 2020 Presidential Election. They are saying my statement on Mail-In Ballots, which will lead to massive corruption and fraud, is incorrect, based on fact-checking by Fake News CNN and the Amazon Washington Post,” the president tweeted. “Twitter is completely stifling FREE SPEECH, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!”
YOU WHO SO WILLINGLY GIVE UP YOUR LIBERTIES FOR LIES ARE NO AMERICAN! THIS IS WHERE YOU STOPPED BEING A PATRIOT & IT WILL BE PATRIOTS WHO SHOW YOU THE DOOR!
Video footage out of Staten Island shows a woman being driven out of a grocery store by an angry mob because she’s not wearing a mask.
The clip shows the woman surrounded by other shoppers as they yell and cuss at her.
“Get the fuck outta here” and “get out” the crowd screams at the woman while pointing towards the exit.
“The viral video is part of a wave of social shaming on Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites, aimed at people not wearing face masks in public places,” reports Newsweek.
New Yorkers have been required to wear masks inside grocery stores and while using public transport since April 17.
Reaction to the video was mixed, with some decrying the actions of the mob but others vehemently supporting their behavior.
“Cool. Finally. Cuz at this point, a maskless person in an indoor place is like a shooter pointing his gun at me,” commented one respondent.
“Not wearing a mask during a pandemic is like not wearing a seatbelt in a car,” claimed another.
As we highlighted earlier, in Italy the left-wing government has announced it will recruit 60,000 citizen snitches to enforce “social distancing.”
In the United States, it looks like that won’t be necessary, as an army of volunteer Karens are willing to perform the same role for free.

by Anna Von ReitzToday I have to share one of my all-time favorites so far to come out of all the efforts of Americans to tell government where to stop.When two Oregon Ranchers were contacted by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife authorities about conducting a habitat survey project on their land related to an endangered frog species—which could be used as an excuse to confiscate or interfere with their use of their property— they promptly wrote back:Dear Mr. Niemela:Thank you for your inquiry regarding accessing our property to survey for the yellow-legged frog. We may be able to help you out with this matter.We have divided our 2.26 acres into 75 equal survey units with a draw tag for each unit. Application fees are only $8.00 per unit after you purchase the “Frog Survey License” ($120.00 resident / $180.00 Non-Resident). You will also need to obtain a “Frog Habitat” parking permit ($10.00 per vehicle). You will also need an “Invasive Species” stamp ($15.00 for the first vehicle and $5.00 for each add’l vehicle) You will also want to register at the Check Station to have your vehicle inspected for non-native plant life prior to entering our property. There is also a Day Use fee, $5.00 per vehicle.If you are successful in the Draw you will be notified two weeks in advance so you can make necessary plans and purchase your “Creek Habitat” stamp. ($18.00 Resident / $140.00 Non-Resident). Survey units open between 8am and 3pm but you cannot commence survey until 9am and must cease all survey activity by 1pm.Survey Gear can only include a net with a 2″ diameter made of 100% organic cotton netting with no longer than an 18″ handle, non-weighted and no deeper than 6′ from net frame to bottom of net.

Any frogs captured that are released will need to be released with an approved release device back into the environment unharmed.As of June 1, we are offering draw tags for our “Premium Survey” units and application is again only $8.00 per application. However, all fees can be waived if you can verify Native Indian Tribal rights and status.You will also need to provide evidence of successful completion of “Frog Surveys and You” comprehensive course on frog identification, safe handling practices, and self-defense strategies for frog attacks. This course is offered online through an accredited program for a nominal fee of $750.00.Please let us know if we can be of assistance to you. Otherwise, we decline your access to our property but appreciate your inquiry.Sincerely,Larry & Amanda Anderson———-Don’t believe they did it? The actual letters involved in this correspondence are posted online: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/markmeckler/2016/06/oregon-rancher-receives-government-request-to-survey-his-property-read-his-brilliant-response/This is exactly the kind of response that is necessary— gentle, but to the point, and guaranteed to both make people think and put an end to the nonsense. The fact is that there are many, many ways to respond to “government” that expose the Truth and which protect your rights which are perfectly correct and lawful and nonetheless provide a powerful deterrent. Find them. Use them. Teach others to do the same. Sounds like Larry and Amanda Anderson should be offering a tutorial ($25 for residents, $575 for non-residents) on “How to Communicate With Bureaucrats”.
