Mornings with Maria

Well, it’s insane. President Trump whether you like him or dislike him got 75 million votes. Facebook currently carries at least five Chinese communist sites that have 136 million viewers, they carry a Putin site from Russia they carry a site for Iranian leadership, they carry a site for Maduro, the dictator of Venezuela, they carry a site for the head of the Cuban dictatorship. All those seem fine and the degree that illustrates anti-American bias at Facebook I think is startling, and the idea that this board an absurdity as the “New York Post” has points out in article this morning, if you want to create a lynch mob for President Trump you recruit this board. It’s all left wingers all people who are many of them come from countries that themselves are dictatorships the idea that they are literally — if you can censor somebody who got 75 million votes, you can sensor anybody. So, everybody’s freedom at risk I think we have to recognize. This is an elite either to breakup of big companies or to laws that make it — potentially a lawsuit, to have them be against you. The value to Trump of with a they have done to him over the last year, is so he great, he would bankrupt if liable for lawsuit it is currently not it is currently exempted by congress is a suspect Republicans take back house, I think Speaker McCarthy will clearly bring forward a bill will cost companies billions of dollars, for basically having violated the right of free speech of Americans.
There are three really big takeaways here, first this is a gigantic gift to the Chinese communists there are the people who will most biggest production facilities, they will do the most to produce it. They are thrilled now they don’t have to steal it; it’s being given to them by Biden, second — it is — the heart of socialism is theft. They can’t steal from somebody, this is why you see conditions in Cuba, Venezuela decay rapidly when you steal from all productive people they quit being productive or they move, so this is classic socialist behavior to steal it, and third this will weaken the investment in new drugs worldwide, and will cost lives, the short sightedness of traditional socialist who I understand this morning and forget this afternoon is coming, is just astonishing Biden bought into that literally people will not have the medicines they need over next, 10 or 20 years because of this decision, to steal from the investors and steal from companies.
Remember, the founding fathers, wrote the patent office into the Constitution, that’s how much they believe progress came through property, did not come through government.
