Ron DeSantis Takes On Big Tech

Ron DeSantis takes on Big Tech, proposing sweeping legislation to punish censorship in the public square in the state of Florida.

Published

on

Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida announced on Tuesday that he’s introducing legislation to punish Big Tech companies who engage in censorship, de-platforming, and election interference through favouring one group of candidates form one party over another.

Conservatives are sounding the alarm over censorship on the following technology company platforms: Apple, Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Twitter. DeSantis and the members of the Florida legislature singled them out by name during a lengthy press conference.

DeSantis cited Big Tech’s coordinated de-platforming of the sitting President of the United States, and its takedown of the Parler App in under 24 hours, robbing millions of conservatives and other free speech advocates of their ability to communicate with each other, as the catalyst for his actions. Governor DeSantis has now sounded the alarm and said that in Florida, Big Tech would be on notice that it could no longer behave like an Orwellian Big Brother-type censor with impunity.

DeSantis called upon other states and the federal government to take similar action to protect America’s democracy and allow the marketplace of ideas to once again flourish. He was, however, adamant that regardless of the actions of other jurisdictions, Florida was going to penalize technology companies that engaged in censorship, de-platforming, or favouring candidates from one political party over another.

Florida is the nation’s 3rd largest state, and as such this step will have a significant impact on Big Tech’s ability to continue to censor conservatives and other free speech advocates, including progressives such as Glenn Greenwald and Alan Dershowitz. Videos obtained by Project Veritas at Facebook and Twitter have shown that the CEOs at both those organizations are biased against conservatives and here speech advocates, and see nothing wrong with de-platforming or silencing them.

It is interesting to note that there has been very little coverage of this by the legacy corporate media. There has also been little to no comment on this development by national Republicans or Democrats.

Republican voters say that their top issues going into the off year elections on 2021 and the mid-term elections of 2022 are election integrity and Big Tech censorship. DeSantis has clearly heard them, and this action sets him up to be re-elected to the Governorship of the state of Florida by a much wider margin than his narrow win in 2018. It is expected that DeSantis will win anywhere from 55-63% of the vote in Florida. Should he do this, he will likely be one of the front-runners for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2024.

OAN: American Freedom Tour coming to a town near you

American Freedom Tour President Chris Widener explains what inspired the American Freedom Tour, which debuts in Jacksonville, Florida from Oct. 7-8.

Published

In an interview with One America News Network (OAN) that aired just this week, American Freedom Tour President Chris Widener explains the inspiration and purpose behind the American Freedom Tour.

The event series debuts in Jacksonville, Florida from Oct. 7-8.

Headliners include Donald Trump Jr., Kayleigh McEnany, Dan Bongino, Dinesh D’Souza, Sheriff David Clarke, and Lt. Col. Waldo Waldman. All speakers will be live and in person at each venue.

“I look at the last five years, and conservatives have been told how bad they are,” Widener explains. “They’re deplorable, they’re racist, they’re sexist, xenophobic, transphobic. They’ve been beaten up for five years.”

“I thought,” Widener continued, “wouldn’t it be amazing if we did some rallies around the country, and got conservatives together, so that folks could look around and say, ‘I’m not alone.'”

So, who is Chris Widener, the president of the American Freedom Tour? Consider his thoughts on mask mandates:

“To me, the mask thing is just a way to show you who’s boss. It’s something so simple and so trite. And in reality, what does it really take to put a mask on? But that’s just such a surface level of looking at it. You have to ask, ‘Why would I have to put this mask on?’ And if they can get me to do something really simple like that, what else can they increase it and slowly but surely take away your rights?”

Watch the entire interview on Rumble, or here:

Additional American Freedom Tour events are scheduled in Ohio, Missouri, and North Carolina. Additional locations will be announced on AmericanFreedomTour.com as they become available.

Micro-tasking, not Multitasking, for Effective Performance

Professionals who can micro-task are in demand; multitaskers are doing themselves and their organizations a disservice.

Published

on

Much as been discussed about multitasking and fortunately, much of what has been written exposes the myth that multitasking represents. Instead of making us more productive and having a greater output, we tend to slow down on the very things that were trying to speed up on, and we end up making more errors.

Micro-tasking, by contrast, is the ability to compartmentalize and to focus in quick, short intervals on a variety of items that compete for attention — a vital skill for career professionals. Micro-tasking is effective for quick decisions, and for handling routine and short term tasks term nature. Multitasking is the attempt to handle two important tasks at the same time. It is not to be confused with micro-tasking.

A Skill to Cultivate

Some workers have little choice in the short run but to work in a distracting, noisy environment. Some employees, in particular, were retained to be able to quickly shift their attention from one issue to another, focusing on each issue as needed.

In an interruption-based environment, such as a hospital, police station, retail store, or airline ticket counter, the ability to micro-task is a valuable skill. Throughout the course of a day, a manager in such settings might encounter a variety of people asking questions and voicing concerns. For sale managers micro-tasking can make all the difference in making quota or not.

Tasks that require our sharp attention necessitate that we slow down, focus, keep interruptions at bay, and work as effectively as we can, toward completion. Handling two tasks simultaneously, each of which require sharp attention, is a prescription for poor results.

Be in Demand

Professionals who can micro-task are in demand. Others, who engage in multitasking, are doing themselves and their organizations, a disservice.
