Can Shareholders Bring Suit Against Dorsey for Securities Fraud?


Armstrong Economics Blog/Rule of Law Re-Posted Jun 21, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

In July 2015, then CEO Dick Costolo departed Twitter, and Jack Dorsey assumed the role of interim CEO. Twitter was created by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams in March 2006 and launched in July 2006. By 2012, the platform had more than 100 million users. I am surprised that they have not figured out that Dorsey can be personally sued for securities fraud since he marketed Twitter as being the platform for “freedom of expression,” whereby he has personally taken charge of the company and did exactly the opposite of what was said when they went public.

If I raised money and said we would invest in BioTech, but then after getting the money I invested in real estate, that would be securities fraud. We cannot count on the SEC to defend the people. They get their marching orders and will never cross paths with someone like Dorsey. Worse still, if you take a public corporation and you flip it around for personal use, that too is actionable. Dorsey is obviously incompetent as a CEO.

Founder of Moderna Canceled by Twitter for Confirming Truth

t is time that the people DEMAND the end to censorship. The immunity given to platforms was to prevent them from being sued for posts of others. Not that they are now the Censors of society. They are endangering people’s lives and they should be dragged out of their offices and put on trial for sedition. This is supposed to be a government by and for the people – not World Economic Forum, Bill Gates, and politicians lining their pockets to create concentration camps to reduce CO2 and the population.

The Democrats are protecting this consortium and not the people!

Why BigTech are State Actors & Violate our Civil Rights


Armstrong Economics Blog/BigTech Re-Posted May 27, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

As many know, I lived in London years ago. At the upper end of Hyde Park by Marble Arch, there is Speakers’ Corner. That is where anyone could stand up and talk about anything that they wanted. You were free to listen or just walk away. There would often be a crowd, and that was not an indication that they agreed. It simply meant that the topic was curious, worth listening to or just entertaining crazy talk.

Speakers’ Corner even shows up on Google Maps, showing that this is indeed a landmark. What is important about this is that Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, especially those who claim to be public forums, also claim they have the right to censor what you say or even think. Section 230 only gave them immunity from suit because someone posted something another did not like. In that context, it was a reasonable grant of immunity. It would be like suing the city of London because someone at Speakers’ Corner said something that offended you.

You cannot be a public forum by deleting people and canceling anyone you do not like. Speakers’ Corner in London is what these forums were supposed to be. If someone is a Nazi and hates Jews, so be it. They have a right to say that just as the rest of us have the right to shake our heads and walk away as in Hyde Park. It used to be an easy world. If someone was talking to themselves walking down the street, we just looked at them as being strange. We didn’t run to the police screaming we were offended by what the crazy person said. Today, people are walking down the street and talking perhaps to themselves, but then again, maybe they have an earpiece for a phone. Life has become much more complicated. Now it seems the crazy people are in charge of the forums in BigTech and they are saying we no longer have the right to free speech.

Facebook whistleblowers have leaked documents detailing the effort to censor vax concerns on a global scale secretly. None of this is legal for Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube all have connections to the left side of government and that means that they are acting in violation of the Constitution under the pretense of being private when in fact they are acting as agents of the state. This needs to go to trial and the jury will decide if these people are state actors. If so, then they are violating every principle of the Constitution.

The removal of Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier from the U.S. Space Force this month after he publicly stated his opposition to Marxism and Critical Race Theory is part of a very dangerous new wave of censorship that is transforming the United States into East Germany under the Communists. Speakers’ Corner was the very core of a free society which once stood in contrast to Communism and authoritarian forms of government. This is precisely what these people are resurrecting — the worst of human history.

Twitter Warns Indian Government to “Respect Freedom of Expression” – Beyond The Hypocrisy, Big Tech is Now Telling Global Government What is Permitted Propaganda

Comrade citizens, pay no attention to the blatant propaganda inherent in this latest expression from the almighty Big Tech globalist alliance unit at Twitter.

Ignore the stunning hypocrisy of telling a foreign government to respect the “freedom of expression” from a platform that arbitrarily censors and deletes the “expressions” that do not align with their politics.

Be a good comrade and do not pay attention to the scale of hubris for a company to threaten a foreign government and publicly take the position that Big Tech Twitter is more important and powerful than the billion plus citizens and elected government of a sovereign state.

All your governments are belong to us.  Yes, quite remarkable but completely in-line with their outlook of self-importance.

(New York Post) – Twitter on Thursday said it is worried about the safety of its staff in India and called for the government to respect freedom of expression, days after Indian police visited its office in New Delhi over its labeling of a tweet by a governing party spokesman as “manipulated media.”

Twitter has been involved in a tense battle with the Indian government, which has often asked it to restrict content alleging Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s administration is trying to silence criticism, including of its handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

Twitter said it has “concerns with regards to the use of intimidation tactics by the police” and “the potential threat to freedom of expression for the people we serve.”

India’s IT ministry called Twitter’s statement “totally baseless, false and an attempt to defame India.” It said Twitter should “comply with the laws of the land” instead of “dictating what India’s legal policy framework should be.” (read more)
