Twitter’s decision to permanently ban President Donald Trump amd delete his account from their platform “due to the risk of further incitement of violence” was the final straw for HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson as he issued a statement condemning the latest actions by big tech companies to censor Conservstives.

The tech giant’s suspension of President Trump comes after he posted two tweets on Thursday morning, which Twitter deemed under their policies as “Glorification of Violence policy”.

Several more Twitter users were purged from the platform on Friday, including attorney Sidney Powell and General Michael Flynn. Two other social media companies — Facebook and Instagram — have also gone to great lengths to censor President Trump as well as images and video footage from Wednesday’s unrest at the Capitol building.

In response, Dr. Ben Carson slammed the moves by Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as “wrong” and suggested that “erasing history is no way to unite us” in a time when tensions are already high in America.

He then reminded big tech companies that “we aren’t in China.”

Dr. Carson tweeted, “Silencing a significant number of voters and erasing history is no way to unite us; it only further divides. Big tech & social media platforms want to act like media orgs but don’t want to be held accountable with the rest of media. Speech should be free whether you agree or not

“You want to ban @realDonaldTrump, fine you’re a private company, but @Twitter deleting the President’s account which highlights this admin & its history is wrong,” he added.

“@Facebook & @instagram banning all images from the Capitol riot is a dangerous precedent to set. We aren’t in China,” Dr. Carson concluded. See Below

Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz confirmed Thursday that he flew earlier this week to Mexico with family members, following the emergence of pictures appearing to show him in an airplane cabin and at a check-in counter, as fellow residents to recover from a deadly winter storm.

Cruz said in a statement that he accompanied his daughters on a flight Wednesday night to Mexico because they had the week off with school canceled.

“Wanting to be a good dad,” said Cruz, who also stated he is returning to Texas on Thursday afternoon.

The storms has been connected to at least seven deaths in Texas and knocked out power to as many as 2.5 million residents. The number of residents without electricity as of Thursday morning was down to less than 1 million, officials said.

“My staff and I are in constant communication with state and local leaders to get to the bottom of what happened in Texas,” Cruz also said. “We want our power back, our water on, and our homes warm.”

South Carolina House passes bill that would prohibit most abortions if a fetal heartbeat is detected

Published

on

The South Carolina House of Representatives on Wednesday voted 79-35 to pass legislation that would prohibit most abortions. 

The bill must pass through a procedural vote in the House on Thursday prior to heading to GOP Gov. Henry McMaster who has indicated that he will sign it, according to the Associated Press. Two Republicans voted against the legislation while two Democrats voted for it. The state Senate passed the measure last month. 

The bill requires doctors to carry out an ultrasound to check for a fetal heartbeat and if a heartbeat is identified an abortion can only be performed in certain circumstances.

The legislation would not penalize a woman for obtaining an unlawful abortion, though the individual responsible for performing the abortion could face consequences.

The outlet reported that other states have approved similar or even more stringent abortion prohibitions which could be implemented if the Supreme Court throws out the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. All of the other states’ abortion bans are currently entangled by court challenges and if the South Carolina bill is approved it will likely face litigation that prevents it from going into effect, according to the AP.
