Senator Mike Lee introduced a bill that would require porn sites to adopt age verification technology to keep minors out. It is insane that such a law doesn't already exist, and even more insane that many people will still oppose the measure.

The porn industry opposes this law because they know that an age verification procedure would also discourage some adults from viewing. Even though age verification is needed to but liquor, some may not mind others knowing they bought some Jim Beam, but would die of shame if others knew they viewed "Debbie and Her Stepmom Do DC." Of course, the porn industry would also like sales to minors, just like the cigarette industry did.

I know how he feels. I was banned for stating the fact "Trans is mental illness."

Twitter is still not a place where free speech is allowed.

Twitter is still not a place where free speech is allowed.

Musk works for the MIC, he's a war whore.

He was brought into Twitter to rehabilitate its image, not to fix the company. He's a pawn.

He's not really an innovator at all. It's an illusion.

It's trivial to fix Twitter, you just remove all the filters - there it's fixed. You might get a lot of ant-Antisemitism, people using the word "nigger" whatever, you just remove them, what you are left with would be a free system of communication. It's easy, you can use the people to police the community. Initially it will be a lot of work, but it can be largely automated.

Republican Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) has joined the mounting collective outrage against the Democrats’ Jan. 6 Committee after the tapes from the U.S. Capitol were just released to the public.

Sen. Lee has accused the lawmakers on the committee of “deliberately” hiding information from the American people.

Lee is now calling for a full investigation into the former and current lawmakers who served on the House committee.

The senator’s comments came after House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) began releasing more than 40,000 hours of footage taken at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

The unedited video shows what actually happened when protesters angry about the 2020 election results entered the halls of Congress.

The Friday release of the footage has triggered a major backlash as the videos show a very different narrative to the anti-Trump claims being peddled by the Democrats.

Highlighting the release of the footage in a series of posts to Twitter/X, Lee called into question the character of former Republican Reps. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL).

“Why didn’t Liz Cheney and Adam Kizinger ever refer to any of these tapes?” Lee asked.

Senator Mike Lee called for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to be abolished on Monday, a proposal that would change the way Americans travel.

The TSA is the federal agency tasked with overseeing safety measures for mass transportation in the United States, with its scope including air travel, rail travel and highways. It was created in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center amid an environment of heightened concerns about national security.

Today, the agency is best known for performing security checks on anyone traveling through a U.S. airport. But it has faced some scrutiny from conservatives, who argue it violates peoples' rights while doing little to keep Americans safe while traveling through the sky.

Lee, a Utah Republican, argued that the agency should be dissolved in a post to X, formerly Twitter. ...

Critics of the TSA, however, agreed that it should be abolished, while others said only some changes are needed.

"TSA fails 95% of their red team audits. They are a useless agency that exists solely to secure government contracts for screening machines," wrote podcaster Steve Friend.

In 2015, an internal TSA probe found that undercover investigators successfully brought mock explosives or banned weapons through security checkpoints in 95 percent of trials, according to an ABC News report.

"I actually used to support this myself. I no longer support outright abolishing the TSA, and I certainly don't support leaving terrorism prevention to the airlines, but I do support repealing a lot of the 'security theater' policies," wrote journalist Matthew Chapman.

The TSA was created by the Aviation and Transportation Security Act, passed by Congress on November 19, 2001, later becoming part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in 2003. According to the agency's website, it makes up one-quarter of the DHS workforce, with 65,000 employees across the country.

Guys, Republicans might be starting to learn something.

A cohort of US Senators, led by Utah's Mike Lee, have signed a pledge to no longer cooperate in any way with the Democrats in the Senate. No more Democrat bills. No more Biden nominees. Nothing.

We've got the Mike Lee 8 here.

Mike Lee (R-Utah), JD Vance (R-Ohio), Tommy Tuberville (R-Alabama), Eric Schmitt (R- Missouri), Marsha Blackburn (R-Tennessee), Rick Scott (R-Florida), Roger Marshall (R- Kansas), and Marco Rubio (R- Florida) have all put their names to this letter decrying the White House's "mockery of the rule of law" which has "fundamentally altered our politics in un-American ways."

Biden went a step too far.

Only eight Republican Senators with balls?

Very disappointing.
