Don’t be fooled: the RESTRICT Act is nothing more than an Orwellian censorship grab in disguise
By Ethan Huff // Apr 02, 2023

Another piece of Trojan Horse legislation is moving through Congress.

The so-called "RESTRICT Act," introduced by Sens. Mark Warner (D-Va.) and Tom Thune (R-S.D.), is supposedly aimed at blocking or disrupting transactions and financial holdings linked to foreign adversaries that the powers that be claim are a threat to national security. In truth, though, the RESTRICT Act appears to have been intentionally designed to target the free speech rights of everyday Americans.

Warner, who is described as "a longtime opponent of free speech," crafted the RESTRICT Act in such a way as to weaponize Big Tech, according to Instagram co-founder Mike Krieger, who warned about all this in 2018.

It would seem that nobody took Krieger seriously until the Twitter Files revelations dropped, revealing that he was right: there is an effort afoot to scrap the First Amendment by tying it to foreign malice that must be stopped in order to protect America.

Krieger says that Warner intentionally designed the RESTRICT Act in such a way as to allow the government to "take swift action against technology companies suspected of cavorting with foreign governments and spies, to effectively vanish their products from shelves and app stores when the threat they pose gets too big to ignore," to quote Wired.

Tell your representatives to vote NO on SB686 – the RESTRICT Act cannot be allowed to pass

The bill lists the following countries as bad actors that have to be stopped via its passage: China, Iran, Cuba, Russia, North Korea, and Venezuela. The corporate-controlled media is reporting on the legislation as if it specifically pertains to the social media app TikTok, but this is also a deflection from the truth.

"In reality, the RESTRICT Act has very little to do with TikTok and everything to do with controlling online content," one report warns.

"In very specific terms, a lot of U.S. websites would be impacted. Why? Because a lot of websites use third-party 'plug-ins' or 'widgets' or software created in foreign countries to support the content on their site."

The passage of the RESTRICT Act would grant the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) new overarching powers to take down any and all websites deemed to be using any "foreign content" or software, or that might be engaged in platform communication that the U.S. government deems as going against its interests.

"In very direct terms," reports state, "the passage of SB686 would give the Department of Commerce, DNI, and DHS (Department of Homeland Security) the ability to shut down what you are reading right now. This is a big deal."

In defense of his bill, Warner claims that its provisions only apply to people or entities that are "engaged in sabotage or subversion of communications technology in the U.S., causing catastrophic effects on U.S. critical infrastructure, or interfering in, or altering the result of a federal election" – but who defines what constitutes a violation of all this?

Warner further claims that his legislation only targets "companies like Kaspersky, Huawei and TikTok ... not individual users." The only problem is that the bill specifically states otherwise:

"... no person may cause or aid, abet, counsel, command, induce, procure, permit, or approve the doing of any act prohibited by, or the omission of any act required by any regulation, order, direction, mitigation measure, prohibition, or other authorization or directive issued under, this Act," it reads.

The following RINO (Republican in Name Only) Republicans support the RESTRICT Act – vote them all out:

Sen. Thune, John (R-S.D.)

Sen. Fischer, Deb (R-Neb.)

Sen. Moran, Jerry (R-Kan.)

Sen. Sullivan, Dan (R-Ak.)

Sen. Collins, Susan M. (R-Maine)

Sen. Romney, Mitt (R-Utah)

Sen. Capito, Shelley Moore [R-W.V.]

Sen. Cramer, Kevin (R-N.D.)

Sen. Grassley, Chuck (R-Iowa)

Sen. Tillis, Thomas (R-N.C.)

Sen. Graham, Lindsey (R-S.C.)
