Who gives a shit

Little Twitter 101 for you fanboys


Quote:

When you mute a user, their tweets and retweets become invisible to you. You also won't receive SMS or push notifications from their activity. The muted user can still interact with your tweets though–they can favorite, reply, or retweet your stuff, but those actions won't appear in your Twitter timeline.May

Justice Buchwald subverts legislative intent of First Amendment-twitter case

For the text of the absurd ruling see: KNIGHT FIRST AMENDMENT INSTITUTE AT COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY vs DONALD J. TRUMP


This Fifth Column judge, NAOMI REICE BUCHWALD, rests here opinion on the “public forum” doctrine set forth by the Supreme Court, which in itself is an invention of the Court unknown to our founders --- an invention not in harmony with the intentions for which the First Amendment, along with nine others, was adopted. In fact, the First Amendment, along with nine other Amendments, were intentionally adopted to preclude and forbid federal force to be used to meddle in America’s free market system nor dictate rules by which We the People communicate.

Now, with regard to the “Bill of Rights”, which includes the First Amendment, we find the founders expressed intentions in the Resolution of the First Congress Submitting Twelve Amendments to the Constitution; March 4, 1789

THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added .

And Madison, speaking on the very issue regarding these amendments to the Constitution indicates they were to preserve and protect “federalism” our Constitution’s plan, which reserves to the States all powers not delegated to Congress. He says:

“It cannot be a secret to the gentlemen in this House, that, notwithstanding the ratification of this system of Government by eleven of the thirteen United States, in some cases unanimously, in others by large majorities; yet still there is a great number of our constituents who are dissatisfied with it; among whom are many respectable for their talents and patriotism, and respectable for the jealousy they have for their liberty, which, though mistaken in its object, is laudable in its motive. There is a great body of the people falling under this description, who at present feel much inclined to join their support to the cause of Federalism” ___See :Madison, June 8th, 1789, Amendments to the Constitution

Finally, it is important to read the Federalist Papers in which federalism is summarized as follows:


“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected.

The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State. The operations of the federal government will be most extensive and important in times of war and danger; those of the State governments, in times of peace and security.
__ Federalist Paper No. 45

The bottom line is, the first ten amendments were adopted as a written protection to keep the freaken federal government’s nose out of the people’s affairs, including how they communicate with each other. In fact, they (the First Ten Amendments) were never intended to allow Fifth Column judges and Justices to interpret their meaning in a manner allowing them to impose their personal whims and fancies as the rule of law!

This freaken judge needs to be punished for imposing her will as the rule of law and ignoring the intentions for which the First Amendment, along with nine others, were adopted.

"The public welfare demands that constitutional cases must be decided according to the terms of the Constitution itself, and not according to judges' views of fairness, reasonableness, or justice." -- Justice Hugo L. Black ( U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1886 - 1971) Source: Lecture, Columbia University, 1968

POTUS is paid by taxpayers (actually Trump is donating his POTUS salary, and he donated to VA: Trump donates first quarter salary to VA | Fox News) and the POTUS is a public official, but that doesn't make for a reason for why Trump can't block anyone on Twitter.

A reason would have to be something like the US Constitution mandating POTUS to open a Twitter account and post things on it, like progress reports, updates, decisions, etc.

It isn't the obligation of the POTUS to report via Twitter; that's his personal choice to use (or not use) Twitter.

The only constitutionally mandated obligations that the POTUS has, that I'm aware of, are to congress, such as the State of the Union addresses.

You're right. Let's see how quickly this ruling gets reversed once such "unintended consequences" start to happen.

Just for the record, at least twenty of our Fifth Column news papers around the country have repeatedly refused to publish my letters to the editor on numerous occasions in which I refute their socialist, communist, progressive propaganda. And I accept their right to refuse to publish my letters because that is what freedom is about ___ precluding government force being used to meddle in and dictate rules by which We the People communicate.



Do we really want judges or Justices meddling in and dictating rules by which we communicate? I know they do that in places like Cuba and Venezuela, but do we really want that here.

Judge, NAOMI REICE BUCHWALD apparently wants to exercise that authority and power.

Why should the president of the United States be able to block people who disagree with him?

Sometimes it seems like my city is trying to give Seattle a run for the money on craziest little city. This campaign is going to be great.
