    I really worry about this. I’ve seen a lot of “oh, this will never stand up in the courts.” But it seems some forget Trump and the GOP Senate have placed hundreds of very conservative judges on the federal bench. So, I do not necessarily have confidence the courts will protect our rights. President Trump is an authoritarian “leader” (if you can call him a leader). He seems to have little to no concern for the Constitution so why would he be concerned about the First Amendment? What he wants is authoritarian control over everything, especially all forms of media, which he refers to as “the enemy of the people.” I think he confuses the media with himself when he uses this term.

    I haven’t read the EO, so don’t know the details (I’ll look later), but if you want to move the site to Australia, I can help.

    Thanks, Eric.
    I’m not sure that would shield me from liability here.

    Various experts say that this EO is not worth or as powerful as the paper it is written on. The more insidious thing is the various efforts in Congress to modify or repeal Section 230. Funny how both Elizabeth Warren and Josh Hawley are both anti Big Tech, anti-Silicon Valley, anti-free speech Luddites. Both Warren and other on TEAM BLUE and Hawley and others on TEAM RED are on the same page of going after Section 230.
