Kari Lake, a former journalist turned iconic advocate for America First defender, appeared at an Arizona state hearing investigating problems with the amount of control technology giants have over the lives of Americans at the state’s first House Ad Hoc Committee in the issue.
According to local AZ news:
“The House ad hoc Committee on Oversight, Accountability, and Big Tech met for its first meeting Tuesday to examine social media conduct by Gov. Katie Hobbs when she served as secretary of state and asked Twitter and Facebook to remove social media posts.”
An ad hoc committee is a temporary committee established to resolve a specific issue. The ad hoc committee is typically appointed by executive leadership.
Lake is continuing to use her welcomed notoriety, and she is brilliantly emerging as a historical figure to pay attention to on matters of Free Speech and fair elections; listen to what she said:
“We have fraud pushed on the people; our elections are theater; we have Google having more power than any entity in the word,” Lake said, adding Tuesday, “and we are running out of time, so I ask that you join me because people have no faith in their elections.”
Watch her epic speech and remember we are living in the times our founders warned us about:
It was Samuel Adams, also known by some as the PR agent for the historic Tea Party in Boston, who is credited with saying:
“It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”

Arizona House Committee Discusses Big Tech Influence On Free Speech
The Arizona House Ad Hoc Committee on Oversight, Accountability, and Big Tech convened on Tuesday to discuss the influence of Big Tech on free speech.
Chairing the committee was State Rep. Alex Kolodin (R-LD03); the two other members were State Reps. Neal Carter (R-LD15) and Cesar Aguilar (D-LD26). The committee heard testimony from Robert Epstein, a renowned psychologist and Big Tech data researcher, and James Kerwin, senior counsel for Mountain States Legal Foundation. More individuals were reportedly scheduled to testify, but Kolodin disclosed that they were unable to do so for fear of retribution by Google.
Kolodin opened the committee meeting with allegations of the “disturbing parallels” between modern society and the fictional world depicted in the book “1984” by George Orwell. Kolodin referenced the Orwellian concepts of “thoughtcrime” and “newspeak,” claiming further that they exist currently.
“That crime was thoughtcrime, and the crime was not merely that you said something wrong, the crime was that you thought wrong, that you weren’t purely of a mind that matched the party’s ideology,” said Kolodin. “There is a fear that is exactly what’s going on in our country today. There’s an attempt to redefine free speech as misinformation.”
