House of Representatives approves bill to make Washington D.C. a state… Thoughts?

I’m sure quite of you now have seen or heard the recent news about the House of Reps approving the bill and passing this bill in their level to make Washington D.C. a state.

Daily Wire – House Democrats Pass Bill To Make Washington, D.C., The 51st State

The Hill – House approves bill to make DC a state

NPR – House Democrats Pass Bill To Make D.C. The 51st State

Reuters – U.S. House passes bill to make Washington, D.C., the 51st state

Why? Here’s my thoughts. The democratic party wants…NEEDS more votes for future elections ergo reasoning behind in trying to make Washington D.C. the 51st state in the United States. What then? It’s already leaning towards making an amendment to the U.S. Constitution, particularly the 23rd amendment that bars Washington D.C. from becoming a state, if it goes their way.

Feels more in their direction to holding onto their power and control of the Federal Government. It’s so political and gotten corrupt way from the get-go. I do not want these very progressive and liberal thinkers to overtake (for a lack of a better term) power and control of our Federal Government. I prefer the checks & balances, the balance of powers to be in place. Not for one particular party to be over-powering everything.

As I’m thinking of these out loud… What one party has ever been successful in “ruling”? Sounds very similar to becoming a socialistic / communistic aspect here. I hate to say it, but I’m becoming more weary of what’s been going on and do not like how our country is headed down towards. Again, these are just my thoughts and I’m seeing things becoming more apparent like it’s literally in front of us – slapping us in the face. However, so many people here in the United States are so filled up with the divisiveness, hatred, racial tensions, etc. People lack logical intelligence and straight up respond emotionally and irrationally. You really have to thank our politicians who keep adding the oil to the fire than rather doing what they’re supposed to be doing. They have one job… do it properly. Oh, but of course not. They want to keep us divided in order to keep themselves in office. That’s their play.

Here’s the link to the actual bill – H.R. 51:

H.R.51 – Washington, D.C. Admission Act

And if prefer the PDF here it is:

Big Tech Censorship

“Remember when Nancy Pelosi she called the red hat – Make America Great Again – red hat the new ‘KKK’ hood.”

“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called President Trump a “white supremacist” countless times.”

“Ilhan Omar stated that the prior Trump rallies were ‘Klan rallies’.”

I agree with the twins, the above mentioned, would incite violence because specifically of the narrative that the progressives/liberals and people on the left keep repeating and repeating loudly. Why? Just because they do not like Trump.

And since progressives/liberals and people on the left constantly repeated the same narrative, various Trump supporters, minding their own business, wearing the apparel were attacked – for the simple fact that they are wearing the “Trump” gear.

I DO NOT like white supremacists, racists and people insinuating a false narratives.

At the 4:50 minute mark, the Hodgetwins did have a valid point… All the Congresswomen they mentioned earlier who made remarks still have their Twitter accounts. Why is that?

And they touched upon the BLM protesting / riots when they started destroying businesses, burning buildings and other businesses chanting, “NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE”. What does that mean to you? Why was that okay – to the left?

And remember BLM Chicago organizer, Ariel Atkins – the looting – in Chicago? “Looting… that is reparations… Anything they want to take, take it because these businesses have insurance…”

BLM is still on Twitter… still on FB. After all they’ve done.

All of this talk by government officials are talking in hyperbole (exaggerated statements).

The main point is that the current President of the United States no longer has his social media platforms. However, on the other hand – all these other government officials and protester organizers still do – even after all of the things THEY have stated in the past in year 2020 and before.

10:15 minute mark – Social media companies are a private company – they can do whatever they want… All right, then why can’t private companies be open for business during COVID-19? Doesn’t make any sense.

10:50 minute mark – Who gave all this power to the Big Tech companies? Congress did. Now that Big Tech has this “immunity” it is now being abused.

Section 230 was developed in response to a pair of lawsuits against Internet service providers (ISPs) in the early 1990s that had different interpretations of whether the service providers should be treated as publishers or distributors of content created by its users. After passage of the Telecommunications Act, the CDA was challenged in courts and ruled by the Supreme Court in Reno v. American Civil Liberties Union (1997) to be unconstitutional, though Section 230 was determined to be severable from the rest of the legislation and remained in place. Since then, several legal challenges have validated the constitutionality of Section 230.

In the following years, protections from Section 230 have come under more scrutiny on issues related to hate speech and ideological biases in relation to the power technology companies can hold on political discussions, and became a major issue during the 2020 United States presidential election.

Now – if you can’t see it – open your eyes WIDER. Congress has given power to all these people and look how corrupt they’ve become. Big Tech is hiding behind the “immunity”.

Big Tech can’t be sued so why are they censoring certain people?

If you can control the narrative in the public form, which these social media platforms are… You control literally everything. They want to control the narrative because hardly people watch T.V., listen to radio – but are largely on these social media platforms.

“You Can’t Be Free Without This…” Religious Freedom is threatened.

“When… men attack religious beliefs, they are following their emotions, not their interests….
Tyranny may be able to do without faith, but freedom cannot.”
-Alexis De Tocqueville, Historian

Kelly Shackelford, President of First Liberty, explains.

8 years ago his case load was 47 cases, representing clients, in fighting religious liberty. Then in 2019, it is well over 300 cases.
