It is common knowledge that the social media is censoring conservatives at an alarming rate. It is also common knowledge that if we wait for Congress to act, we will all be dead and voting Democratic for eternity. But, fortunately, we have a president, who is unafraid to act independently. President Trump does his best when he can sidestep Congress and act using his executive authority.
The president wants the top three and possibly others to be thoroughly investigated under the anti-trust laws. That’s why he has an Executive Order being drafted. Once the order is complete, the president wants feedback from other agencies before signing the final draft.
The White House has drafted an executive order for President Donald Trump’s signature that would instruct federal antitrust and law enforcement agencies to open investigations into the business practices of Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Facebook Inc. and other social media companies.
The order is in its preliminary stages and hasn’t yet been run past other government agencies, according to a White House official. Bloomberg News obtained a draft of the order.
The possibility of an executive order emerged as Attorney General Jeff Sessions prepares for a Sept. 25 briefing by state attorneys general who are already investigating the tech firms’ practices.
The meeting, which will include a representative of the Justice Department’s antitrust division, is intended to help Sessions decide if there’s a federal case to be made against the companies, two people familiar with the matter have said. At least one of the attorneys general participating in the meeting has indicated he seeks to break up the companies.
The companies have had plenty of warning and now it’s time to pay the piper for ignoring those warnings. The executive branch has the power to break up companies without advise or consent from Congress.
