Their position placed a premium on press freedom, despite its uncomfortable consequences. Under Donald Trump however, the position changed. The DoJ relied on an old … More TheVoiceOfJoyce Publishing companies are naively blocking punishment of Julian Assange based on his original investigative reporting. However, when Wikileaks and Julian Assange, worked cooperatively with the Russian Internet Agency and Donald Trumps campaign to make private emails and data gained illegally by The Russian Internet Agency, they crossed a red line. Wikileaks was essentially aiding a crime. The Russian Internet Agency, infiltrated the RNC and the DNC and exposed sensitive polling data. The Russian Internet Agency stole data from Hillary Clinton and released 30,000 of her emails for use in conspiracy ads and for use by the Trump Campaign Team. Would you want someone, or entity or foreign entity to gain access to your personal data and use it against you? Is this any different from entering the DNC and stealing their papers for your campaign’s use and strategy. One set of data is on paper and the other data resides on the internet. What’s the difference?
COP27 was a failure of Leadership and open collaboration among nations. A major plan to phase out Fossil Fuels never materialized.

I wish I could state, Tesla’s construction site in Austin, Texas, is an outlying case of labor abuse, it isn’t.

The EPA , fired 100’s of scientists under Trump. Clearly, small government is working for people who were used to drink clean water. Anywhere there are factory farms, the water is tainted. High levels of minerals and other toxins are causing algae blooms rendering the River water and ground water, unsafe for drinking or swimming. If you want to drink clean drinking water, don’t vote for TRUMPS GOP, they want Corporate self regulation. We the People have small government, hollowed out governing agencies & Corporate self regulation. Corporations work to sustain their profits. We the People, no longer get a living wage or clean water and clean air. Profits come first in this GOP created Utopia. Vote GOP and watch our limited water resources, evaporate!

The act will … More TheVoiceOfJoyce Following the case of Molly Russell’s suicide, GB has agreed to extend protection from harmful content to young vulnerable adults as well, ages18-24 yrs of age. Content causing self harm and suicide must be removed to the Regulators satisfaction. The large and small Social Media Platforms must explain their methodology for removal of content to users or face the Ofcom regulator, the Communications regulator , which will have the power to impose fines of 10% of their global turnover, if they breach the legislation. The NHS is taking mental health seriously and providing $57 million for additional prevention spending. If you haven’t followed this case, the Social Media Platforms scanned by the young woman who took her life, sent material to her that interested her. Since she was depressed, she viewed harmful content and the algorithms, responding to her interests pushed more harmful videos and materials onto her site, she was inundated with self harm videos for 6 months and then she committed suicide. With the new Law, the algorithms must change and the Platforms will be responsible for that change. Do you think you can withstand viewing self harm materials, violent content, deaths and remain unharmed by the content?

Why should members of Congress, the January 6 Committee or other members of Federal or State Legislatures be the target of violence and harassment, on known Social Media Platforms and platforms used by the alt right and the Trump organization? Corporations are now self regulating. All corporations. There were Laws in place giving the DEA the power to prosecute and follow the money in Opioid distribution. Those Laws were overturned by the Marino Law, named for the Republican sponsoring this Law. Now the Law states, if a Corporation says, they had no intention of addicting others, they can’t be prosecuted. Self regulation brought America an Opioid problem, resulting in 100,000 deaths a year. Peoples lives can be saved by Regulating an industry. There is no difference between a “ brick and mortar corporation” and an online Platform. They all require Regulation. Change Section 230 of the Communication Decency Act and eliminate violent and abusive platforms. There are 300 million + guns in our Country, what’s said on Social Media and online platforms, doesn’t stay virtual!
