Trump sues Facebook, Twitter over ‘blacklisting and canceling’

Claims that tech companies are biased against conservatives have emerged as a top issue to rally the GOP base ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.

Associated Press, USA TODAY

“There are many men of principle in both parties in America, but there is no party of principle.” and “The greatness of America lies not in being more enlightened than any other nation, but rather in her ability to repair her faults.” — Alexis de Tocqueville

America only recently has reawakened from its prolonged induced COVID-19 Pandemic Nightmare, to rediscover America’s historical problems and issues — those of economic disparity, ethnic, racial, and religious bigotry, hatred and political divisiveness— have dramatically increased during the last 18-month period. 

“Bipartisanship politics” does not exist as a reality in 2021 American government.

While the bitterly contentious 2020 U.S. presidential election was reason enough by itself to continue to divide Americans, our ex-POTUS still refuses, more than six months out of office, to neither concede nor admit the reality of defeat of losing both the national popular and national electoral college vote.

American history records at least 12 controversial, contested, crucial national elections for U.S. President: from 1800, 1824, 1860, 1880, 1884, 1912, 1940, 1948, 1960, 1968, 2000, and 2020. 

Moreover, if the “Contest to Elect a U.S. President” was deemed to be a team sport played either by youthful, little leaguers or by professional, big leaguers, American sports fans would unanimously denounce any such player/team attitude/demeanor to be suffering from a case of “Sore Loser Syndrome” par excellence. 

From USA TODAY: Twitter blocked and labeled Donald Trump’s tweets on election fraud. They spread anyway.

Currently, the ongoing so-called “Big Lie” theory of nationwide voter fraud during the 2020 U.S. Presidential election is still believed and apparently held by some 70% of Republican-Trump Voters as of August, 2021. 

Alarming to truth, justice, and the American Way, a recent national public opinion poll shows that a “majority” of voters still believe that Joe Biden only won the election on account of “voter fraud!”

In 2020, our American Republic is still a beacon of light as a symbol of a democratic-republican form of government in an otherwise seemingly, increasingly autocratic 21st Century.

No state nor federal court has granted any jurisdiction, nor standing in fact nor has ruled on the merits of any claims of voter fraud stemming from the 2020 U.S. Presidential election.

The 2021 C-SPAN Fourth Historians Survey of U.S. Presidential Leadership was recently announced by over 90 American historians. 

What place in American presidential history is Trump ranked? No, he’s not the worst American president of all time— how about the worst president of both 20th and 21st centuries, or in the last 120 years of American presidential history?
