William Barr just took aim at this major Obama ally

Attorney General William Barr has been a breath of fresh air in the Trump administration.

Barr immediately corrected Jeff Sessions’ biggest mistakes.

And now William Barr just took aim at this major Obama ally.

Big Tech companies censoring conservative views online is one the biggest issues facing America heading into the 2020 elections.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions refused to investigate major tech companies for weaponizing their platforms to silence their political opponents to help the Democrats win in 2020.

That changed when Attorney General Barr took over.

The Justice Department just announced a broad review of Facebook, Amazon, Apple, and Google’s anti-competitive business practices.

The Wall Street Journal reports:

The review is geared toward examining the practices of online platforms that dominate internet search, social media and retail services, the department said, confirming the review shortly after The Wall Street Journal reported it.

The new antitrust inquiry under Attorney General William Barr could ratchet up the already considerable regulatory pressures facing the top U.S. tech firms. The review is designed to go above and beyond recent plans for scrutinizing the tech sector that were crafted by the department and the Federal Trade Commission.

The two agencies, which share antitrust enforcement authority, in recent months worked out which one of them would take the lead on exploring different issues involving the big four tech giants. Those turf agreements caused a stir in the tech industry and rattled investors. Now, the new Justice Department review could amplify the risk, because some of those companies could face antitrust claims from both the Justice Department and the FTC.

Tech companies set out after the 2016 election to prevent Donald Trump – or someone like him – from ever winning again.

That’s why these companies began suppressing the reach of conservative sites and outright banning content creators.

But now it appears they are finally going to be held accountable.

    Barr is looking into everybody and PROSECUTING NOBODY

    at least Mueller went after people-that is what a prosecutor DOES!!

    • Mike Flanagan says:

      Just watch took Muller Millions 2 years and the dummy blew it in front of congress. WOW

    • Mike says:

      Wow, are you clueless, watch how many will be indicted from democrat party over next year. The cover ups are about to be exposed, and when cover ups end, the crooks will sing.

    • Kath says:

      I hope Mr. Barr does break into action. I want to see the ex-affirmative action president behind bars.

  2. Racists forTrump says:

    Barr is another corrupt Republican, an Attorney General who intentionally screwed up the Mueller report, lied to Congress one time, and ignored a subpoena another time. He is just another Trump flunky who sold his soul for a little fame and some silver to defend the anti-Christ Trump. Right wing sites are filled with hatred, lies, conspiracy theories, and has plenty of money supplying them from criminals like the Koch brothers and other big businessmen, ;people’s whose wealth make Trump look like a pauper.

    • Mike says:

      Dam you are a bitter shrew … Democrats …. Note the RATS in the name …their in every city they have screwed up for the last half century or more. Of course if they fixed them up the residents would vote republican…

    • Wondering Woman says:

      Think you got your candidates mixed up. Hillary is the satanic cult ritual practitioner along with her cohort pedophiles!

      • Racists forTrump says:

        Jeffrey Epstein and George Nader are Trump’s friends.

        • Janet says:

          and bill clinton is the epstein buddy who traveled with epstein!!!
          Clinton already knew how to deal with sexism
          Bill is still more moral than criminal Hillary!!!

    • ROFLMAO says:

      Koch brothers are criminals, they are rinos or Demorats, which you seem to be. The only person that screwed up the Mueller report was Mueller, as he made a Democrat of himself before the Congressional traitors. One day you may wake up and smell the coffee and realize neither party is worth a damn.

    • American 1st says:

      Someone sure has brainwashed you.

    • Gregory Sullivan says:

      Racists for Trump;
      You should change your handle here to “Buffoons For Hillary”

  3. Dan says:

    Barr needs to fire Christopher R. The head of the FBI. He’s refusing to turn over information requested by investigations. He is nothing more than a drinking swamp rat.

  4. rufusvondufus says:

    I hope Barr stomps all over those biased p’sos and shuts them down or fines them hundreds of billions of dollars for denying conservatives the same rights they give to looney tunes leftists.

  5. Merlin Wood says:

    Draining the swamp will return America to the real born in America Americans. And it is long overdue

  6. bagster53 says:

    stop with the phony going to get you b/s , when i see you sentence oboma to life in gitmo , i will begin to believe yous are serious, like romney in 2012 , had everyones hopes up of defeating the kenyan freak only to hand him his 2nd term , what a bunch of cons

    • Roger says:

      Anyone that doesn’t believe Obama knows everything about the fake Russian dossier is just plain dumb! Obama was the puppet master, and Loretta Lynch and James Comey and everyone below them were his puppets. One text message between, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page even stated that the president (Obama) wants to know everything we are doing.
      This was nothing short of election rigging by Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, Loretta Lynch, James Comey, Hillary Clinton and others, these people need to be arrested and prosecuted:
      Current FBI director Christopher Wray, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Huma Abedin, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Susan Rice, James Comey, Peter Strozk, Lisa Page, Andrew McCabe, Rod Rosenstein Robert Mueller (Uranium one) Eric Holder (Fast and Furious) and Barack Obama and many more belong in prison! Every one of them needs to be arrested and prosecuted for treason against the American people and the United States of America!
      Because John Kerry (a civilian) is trying to usurp the power of the president he gets added!
      Firing or allowing these criminals to step down and collect pensions paid for by the American people must stop and it must stop now! No one is above the law! Trump/Pence 2020!

      • NavymanBill says:

        Good comment.

      • Barbara says:

        Your opinion is along side mine. This whole crooked mess was started by yet another criminal of a Democrat. And if it isn’t stopped now…we will be battling this action time and time over the rest of the life of the Democrat party…at least this progressive party in place right now.

      • rufusvondufus says:

        A huge part of our mammoth deficit is all of these overpaid public servants and their enormous pensions which they have given to themselves. Let’s put a stop to those and watch our deficit come down and their work ethics go up! When you know you will get paid no matter how badly you perform you will perform to the least of expectations which Congress has been doing and still is.

    • D.K. says:

      Barr is all talk and no action. Something should have been done when the conservatives had both House and Senate. AGAIN, ALL talk and NO Action

    • rufusvondufus says:

      Romney got stomped by an overweight female Obama loyalist! He was truly a wimp not deserving the presidency and is not showing just how partisan he is. A pox be upon him.

    • MARIBEL WHALEN says:

      I completely agree. We elected Trump because he is not swimming in the swamp with the rest of them. We would have been in jail for just a hint of what they have gotten away with so far. Starting with Hillary’s Acid Bleached server and hammered cells. The whole thing is a joke and anyone who’s been following this story (as I have since 2016), knows darn well the entire Russian collusion story was nothing but a hoax and completely fabricated by Obama and all of his puppets as you put it. Don’t know much about Amazon, but as far as Google & Facebook, I have fallen victim to their blocking some of my political views. Just recently I posted and shared a story on the lady (Scherie Murray) who is running against AOC and Facebook blocked it, they said I didn’t have the rights to share but yet after asking others to share, they were able to. So I took a picture and posted it anyway. Algorithms do not work on pictures so you have to become creative with your posts. It takes them a little longer to find those. But if you do not make comments, just post a picture, your post can be up for longer periods of time.

    • Rod says:

      I’m just amazed how the Dems can throw everything including the kitchen sink at Trump and the Republicans just turn the other cheek. Makes me just want to bust them one. Out with these Dem boot lickers.

    Hey Bill, Do something instead of just talking about doing something. All you’ve done is talk and threaten!!!!!

    • Sandra Haddock says:

      There are wheels spinning that we can’t see – Barr WILL take care of this, he just doesn’t share his findings until he knows the truth. I’ve been cut off fb several times in the last year from on week to 3 months at a time because I posted something about hc. I wasn’t vulgar, mean, or stupid in my post, yet fb took me down.

    • GR says:

      All I ever read about is talk. This person or someone else committed a criminal act and should be held accountable. BUT nothing ever gets done! Where is the justice?

  9. Del says:

    ALL Illegals as well as Muslim’s and their Families must be Deported from Our Country ASAP ..Anyone of them that want to come to OUR COUNTRY and be a Citizen must file like everyone else and NO ASYLUM…
    No Muslim may ever hold any City,State or Federal Office in Our Country..

    Senile Pelosi,Lunatic Waters,Pocahontas,Father Time Cummings and Bigot Al Sharpton as they are Racist,ignorent and outlived their time.They are the reasons we need Term limits.

  11. Proud et says:

    Whole charade of trying to destroy Trump which is trying to destroy the American people and conservativism and also re-murdering all those who died for this great nation for the rule of law and for the constitution or under attack by the very very rich and powerful of the world who sick control of the world for global whole charade of trying to destroy Trump which is trying to destroy the American people and conservativism and also murdering all those who died for this great nation for the rule of law and for the constitution or under attack by the very very rich and powerful of the world who seek control of the world for global Enslavement!

  12. Joe Know says:

    We The People need to find a way to force them to put Term Limits on the Ballot in 2020.

    • simone says:

      Term limit on the ballot PLEASE

    • Reba says:

      Yes we the people should demand it.

      • Robert Polans says:

        You can write term limits in. If enough of us do they can’t ignore us. For example, if someone has been in the Senate or congress I either have to like them a lot (I think those two houses are our second biggest enemy next to the invaders) or they have been there for 6 years or more they are history.
        It is going to come to a point of 1776 just better weapons so be prepared.

    • Steff says:

      By major petitions to your state representatives is the only way at this point.

    • Jeff says:

      Term limits is being looked into through the Conference of States as prescribed in the Constitution!

      • Doug Heydrick says:

        Unfortunately, 34 states are needed for anything to really happen with a Convention of States. I’m not saying we couldn’t get there, I’m just saying we’re still at less than 30. Without the 34, looking at term limits is all you’re going to do.

  13. Gary V says:

    Vicki S is correct with the FISA and FBI make sure that all the T’s are crossed and the I’s dotted I am 65 hope I am alive to see them held accountable for thei crimes.

  14. Jeffory Sweat says:

    I was censored by Twitter

    • Bill Johnson says:

      I was too because I repeated
      ” God Bless President Trump !
      They didn’t like me saying that.
      They will not stop me.

      • jackie schimek says:

        FB get me all the time some time for up to 30 days for being Pro Trump.

        • I’ve been in Facebook jail so many times I can’t count as long as a month at a time as soon as I get back on they take me off. Because I supported my President or because I said something truthful about Killary or Obama or the squad

          • Reba says:

            When they accuse us of being fascist, racist etc…. it is them selves they are talking about. Their actions prove it.

          • Eileen Ross says:

            Otilia, better get out of Facebook. They are spying on you, and could use stuff against you in the future. Even though it’s probably too late, get out now!!!!!!!

    • CHUCK says:

      When i signed up for twitter i was instantly was banned .. N EVER WAS ON IT BEFORE..

    • MARIBEL WHALEN says:

      Censored by FB multiple times. But I don’t quit, I just keep them coming. Also, I have asked friends to check my posts and sometimes they can’t see it. Talk about corruption/collusion/obstruction …. start with Twitter, Facebook and Google. And even with their one-sided ads, they still can’t win!

  15. Robert powell says:

    i will NEVER HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH FACE-BOOK . i do not trust them ,i do not like them .i have never had a Facebook account nor DO I WANT ONE -EVER.

    • Aqasprt says:

      Spreely.com far better minds.com not bad either good alternatives, wish others would dump Facebook.

    • Lisa says:

      Robert powell, I so agree. Facebook, Twitter, and the rest owned/operated by these 2 companies are communist type they have ratings on everyone, like China. If you even lean slightly right you have a negative rating. Google collects this info also. I do not have any of these accounts.

    • Eileen Ross says:

      You’re a smart man!

  16. Marlene says:

    Lemming is the only dem in these comments.

  17. Eloise says:

    The big tech platforms are absolutely biased in favor of leftist politics and are very anti-conservative. It’s time to apply the break-up hammer of the Sherman Act to all the arrogant, corrupt, and highly politicized tech giants, same as was done to huge, arrogant Ma Bell back in the day. The big tech platforms are all secretly financed and controlled by the CIA and other black ops agencies.

    • Robert powell says:

      the national security agency has run rampant over all electronic media in this country ,you can not have a security system that the N.S.A. can not read. the cia in all their ill-gotten gains can now do anything they want with full permission from the denon-rats.

  18. gary vogt says:

    I know Barr has his hands full and glad he is investigating tech. However I believe he is dragging his feet on the FISA and the FBI investigation looking for a way to let them off the hook.

    • Vicki S says:

      Why would Barr want to let them off the hook? He’s not dragging his feet and Durham, not Barr, is investigating everything to do with the witch hunt. I would rather have them take their time, and nail them all, instead of rushing through it. From what I read or hear from Judicial Watch, this whole operation was very complicated, with many players, both foreign & domestic. It takes a while to pull all those strings and hopefully when the last string is pulled Obama comes tumbling down!

      • Trudy Hand says:

        Vicki, Obama is the one that opened the flood gates just before he left office. In 8 years he was there had never opened this info up to all the different agencies. Just before he leaves office he does that. If they want to arrest anyone on the investigations they should start with Hillary,who did the” push button” with the Russians and Obama who whispered on open mic, that he could do more after his last election.

      • Beverly Skinner says:

        I AGREE COMPLETELY!! I can’t understand why so many people think the Powers that be, can just snap their fingers and YEARS of CORRUPTION will disappear. It takes time. GIVE IT TO THEM!!

        • SusanGlancy says:

          The whole thing will take years….low hanging fruit goes first. Then come the appeals and plea deals. It took years to construct this corrupt cabal, and will take years to tear it apart one part at a time…the fBI, thr
          En the CIA and STATE DEPARTMENT.

      • MARIBEL WHALEN says:

        You don’t have to go very far. Just ask Hannity and his entire investigative group. They have been investigating this since November of 2016. Have watched every single night since then and he’s got all the goods. Seriously! Shouldn’t have to take this damn long … Sessions was a total waste of space … should have been FIRED long ago.

    • Conservative Senior says:

      Barr is all talk and no action.

      • Judith Pierorazio says:

        After today, I don’t think it’s going to matter. Jeff Sessions might feel some heat before long. Barr is no joke. Just watch. his comments re Mueller’s testimony. The FBI and DOJ are in for a rough ride going forward. I hope it includes terminating the SES.

      • Colleen La Rose says:

        I beg to differ from you sir
        Barr has done a hell of alot to hold the lunatic liberals in account for their crimes. He can’t just do what we want & lock up all the lunatic liberals. Give him time, he is working on seeing the criminals brought to justice.

      • D.K. says:

        I agree!!!

    • Joann says:

      You are so right. Gitmo may be a few more months away but the homework is being done & when the boom strikes it will be solid & not be stopped. Trump is there by the hand of God & no power is going to impeach him; in fact the impeach Trump army is who will be sorry that they ever tried to pick this fight.

  19. Insider says:

    They ARE biased !!! Absolutely!!! The DemSNAKES are so underhanded and obstruct anything Republican. It is astoundingly crooked and evil. I want Barr to name names, and kick A$$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! F’ing leftist tech, and stupid brain dead so-called celebs. It is so old and tiring, Vote Repub people, they have the only sign of brain cells that fire rationally. And, I am getting kicked out of facebook for stupid idiotic reasons. When I see trump trolls saying malicious BS, and HEY…. they are still there!!!

    • Dora says:

      FB has sensor most conservatives for stating the truth and blaming violating company policies “what policies being conservative” and that is a YES

  20. Zaw Soe says:

    Mr President Trump please eliminates in your office from African born Borat Hussein kiss ass still in you cabinets will get you in trouble. They are hatter and skunkbad squads stills exist. Do not trust Members and Media they are nothing but dirtbags.

  21. Laura C McCurdy says:

    I truly believe the large Tech companies need to be taken to the cleaners with every lawful action available
    to our DOJ and the FTC.. They act like the dictators of China, No Korea etc.

  22. Carol Thompson says:

    How refreshing, straight talker. Love Barr

  23. Sher says:

    Mr Barr keep on doing what your doing to put all of them away. They should all be tried for TREASON. I cant believe how much they hate this Great Country. Thank You God for making Trump our President cause he sure is cleaning house.

  24. Carl says:

    Trump’s biggest mistake was not to get rid of all Obama’s left overs.

    • Exactly. Lincoln knew this better than anyone. He chopped 1500 in the executive branch the first day. Considering there was only 4k total in the entire branch back then, that’s a massacre. Trump should do what Newt told him to do on day one. Put the press in the off site offices they used to be in before Kennedy. They got updates 3x a day and didnt hv free reign of the White House to stir up trouble

    • Rod says:

      If I was there one day one I would have required EVERY office , department, etc., to submit a payroll list of all the people on their budget that included their date of hire , pay grade on hire and current level in the staff. All those hired when Obama got in would be reviewed for their promotions and increase in pay grade . The REAL PLANTS would stick out for the fast raise in their positions. Then their jobs would be reviewed to see if they could create any bottlenecks against NEW POLICY and if found be so positioned, they would be removed and DOWN GRADED, so they would quit on their own. If they don’t get out on their own , then FIRE THEM.

  25. sheldon says:

    I have been in Facebook jail so many times , I have lost count. They just do not like me saying Democrats are morons and imbeciles!

  26. Rodney says:

    The big 4 will argue they are private businesses and exempt from the rules. However, a judge recently rules President Trump and other politicians cannot block people on their twitter accounts. That ruling says they are basically a public utility and not exempt from all the discrimination rules. Also, as publicly traded entities, they are held to all the same rules as the rest of society.

    • Vicki S says:

      The main reason they are not allowed to do what they’re doing is because when they started up they told Congress they were just a platform for other people, so they were granted an exemption from being sued. They also were told they’re not allowed to ban or censor anyone. Well it’s clear as mud they are sensoring and banning Conservatives. Congress needs to do the right thing, and rescind that exemption. If enough people sue them, it will put a big dent in their revenue. As far as I’m concerned, Google should be broken up into tiny pieces. Their arrogance of residing in the USA, while helping the Chinese Military, while refusing to help ours, should be severely punished!

  27. Robert B says:

    Good for AG Barr! About time this censorship got a close look.

  28. Chris says:

    If they were biased all you lemmings wouldn’t be able to post your trash on this site!

  29. Colleen La Rose says:

    I luv me sum William Barr!!
