There seems to be nothing that the Democrats (a.k.a. Socialists) in California won’t do to fan the flames of the destruction of this country, its laws, and its institutions – and now, its essential founding document, the United States Constitution. Making California a Sanctuary State for illegal immigrants, passing a law to make it a crime for businesses to cooperate with Federal authorities seeking to enforce immigration laws, automatically registering as voters residents with driver’s licenses (including 1 million illegal immigrants) – and now, a State legislator who wants to, in effect, overturn the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that guarantees unfettered and unregulated free speech.
Joel B. Pollak at Breitbart reported the shocking news on April 4:
California State Senator Dr. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento) has proposed a bill, the “Online False Information Act,” that would require anyone who posts news on the Internet to verify their information through “fact-checkers.”
The bill, filed quietly in late February as SB 1424, requires all California-based websites to develop a plan to fight “fake news,” to use “fact-checkers,” and to warn readers — including via social media — of “false information.”
The story seems unbelievable – but sadly it is all very true.
Journalist Jon Rappoport picked up and advanced the story in a column at his No More Fake News Web site on April 9, “Astonishing California bill would shut down free speech, require fact-checkers:”
California used to be trumpeted as the cutting edge of American culture.
It still is, except the culture is now all about censoring free speech.
California Senator Richard Pan, who was behind the infamous 2015 law mandating vaccinations for schoolchildren (SB277), has stepped up to the plate and introduced another bill.
This one would clamp down on criticism of ANY Official Story.
This topic will be among the ones discussed during my scheduled live video Skype appearance tonight, Monday April 9, 2018, on The Hagmann Report between 9-10 PM EDT.
