when i refinanced with sofi, that allowed me to pay off aggressively and save without breaking my back or breaking the bank. they are censoring my account they are censoring others. when i posted that video i didn't say this is the gospel. i said this is a must watch because it seems contrary to the narrative they have been force-feeding us for a little while. twitter takes me down for that but has no problem saying coronavirus disinformation spread by the chinese government does not violate their rules. i just put something out the challenged the narrative and because i have a large platform i am canceled.
rob: big tech in the hot seat over political bias just hours after twitter suspended donald trump junior's account over a controversial video about hydroxy chloroquine by doctors. jack dorsey may not be one of them but one of the biggest names in tech will be testifying. jillian: congresswoman -- carson kelly armstrong joined us. what is next? let's look at the things on the agenda today. business practices, marketing power, privacy, the use of personal data, content moderation and political bias. what can we expect today? what is your goal? >> my goal is to talk to these guys and figure out the best way to continue to have this conversation particularly, here's the issue.
yesterday, they spent the hearing yelling at him and today they are bringing in four tech ceos with the subcommittee solely five minutes to talk to one or 2 of them, almost like they are doing these hearings for show rather than substance. one of these companies deserve their own hearing and the one that is not here deserve the first one and that is jack dorsey. we will do our best, whether it is bias or censorship or marketing practices chasing out local newspapers in north dakota but when you have all five they hide behind each other because only 5 minutes of questions. rob: the way we started the segment to talk about this video donald trump junior get suspended for doing, this was a press conference with a group of doctors, talked about how he thinks children are not vessels for this virus, another talks about the power of hydroxy chloroquine in curing this disease. some people think it does work but the fact that they suspend his account for putting of the differing view on science, something other doctors believe.
>> i don't think it is a mistake they are bringing in facebook who my democratic colleagues think don't do enough to censor republicans, they are bringing in twitter which has too much to censor republicans, no doubt there is a bias in the media, more often than not conservatives are censored. the bigger question in the realm of 230 is once you start editorializing content, why should 230 exemptions apply to you, we have to figure out a way forward. when democrats talk about harmful and hateful rhetoric what they are talking about is censoring speech and we have to be careful. jillian: you mentions facebook suspiciously, i believe companies shouldn't be making judgments about important issues like harmful content, privacy
and election integrity on their own. that is why i called for a more active role in government the regulators have updated rules on the internet. what do you say to that response? >> i appreciate that. one of the concerns we have is who is the policing the police, this turned into the thought police and we see it going on across the country with this new version of cancel culture, newspapers essentially saying they aren't going to run conservative viewpoints and anyone who believes in free and robust exchange of ideas should be terrified where we are going is a country. rob: you will hear from jeff bezos, the first time before congress, amazon -- we change when we make mistakes, we apologize but when you look in the mirror, still believe you are doing the right thing, fortunately our approach is working. what do you expect to hear from
jeff bezos? >> this hearing started because and amazon employee may have misled our panel several months ago. republicans don't believe companies should be broken up just because -- this is affecting consumers in the future. with regards to amazon. i'm glad they have a successful company, they have access to cheaper products than in the history a country. what i'm concerned about is they are using that power to squeeze out their own competitors of those are questions we should get answers to. jillian: thank you for your time, we appreciate it. 18 after the hour donald trump wondering why his coronavirus response rating isn't higher. >> nobody likes me. it can only be my personality.

the gop. joe biden's comments were for me unacceptable, insulting for any -- a woman needs a man to be successful. rob: biden revealing the final pillar of his costly bill focused on advancing racial economic equity. bending $157 billion of funds to help minority businesses. >> if i'm elected and this passes i will go down as the most progressive president in american history. rob: the first 3 part of that plan estimated to cost $3 trillion. the trump campaign slammed it is federal spending the size of an economic plan. rob: thank you. jillian: more than 100 police agencies are backing out of their dnc security detail after milwaukee restricted crowd control measures to all but
eliminating pepper spray and teargas. officers are sounding the alarm about safety. here to react, turning point usa spokesperson rob smith. thanks for joining us. >> reporter: thanks for having me. jillian: what is your reaction to this? >> my reaction is what we are seeing is the anti-cop anti-police officer anti-law and order sentiment of the left coming in their final form, basically saying they will eliminate a lot of the methods police officers use to protect other people. honestly when we look back at everything going on the past couple months we have seen these riots with all of this unrest this has all been happening in liberal run democratic led cities and it is getting to the point that it is dangerous and i
think at this point you have a nominee on the left so afraid to call this where it is people are so afraid to support law enforcement because they think being anti-police and anti-cop legislates and police officers and unions saying no more, you will not treat us like this and expect our protection. i am not surprised. it is a bold move in the right one and anti-police forces on the left really need to be taught a lesson. jillian: i have a question that will come out direct. as a black man in america, is it hard for you to be so supportive of law enforcement? not family and friends but the general public of america, you
talk about how important it is to support law enforcement do you get backlash for that? >> of course i get backlash for that but it is not hard to support law enforcement. there is a narrative on the left which is all these police officers are white, crazy, racist, in lebron james words and john black men, that is not true at all. i stand up for law enforcement of all colors and i have to be specific that there are law enforcement officers of all colors helping and protecting american citizens. i don't find it hard to stand up for police officers because it is the right thing to do. the only way to dissipate the tension that black and brown communities are having with police officers is to start a conversation. that is not politically beneficial to the left, they want chaos, they want people to -- they want, they want black communities to be afraid of police officers was i was born
and raised being taught police officers are our friend. we need to have that conversation more. i do not feel hesitation for standing up for law enforcement, not one bit. jillian: i a response that we need to have the conversation more. it is so important between every single person in this country. it is huge. alexandria ocasio cortez proposes cutting federal funds for military recruitment. what does this say to our future generations who might want to get into the military and defend our country? >> it is anti-military and also anti-american. i talk about it in my book that just came out, it is story of me discovering a love for america through military service, coming out as a conservative to save america from the radical left, so many people across the
country, military service is a way to serve the country, and gender love for their country, so much about helping people economically and empowering communities, military service has empowered so many people like myself became from working-class backgrounds and gave us an opportunity, there is no way i would have gone to college without the military or have what i have and had it not been for the military and what you create that barrier to one of the greatest accomplishments of my life and the lives of millions of americans, not a good thing to create that barrier, a path to people to love and respect their country and that is what they want. i think they want to create as many barriers to true love of country as they possibly can. it is deeply cynical and despicable.
jillian: great insights, love having you on, thank you for your service. author of always a soldier, thank you. rob: a couple headlines. the marines are set to test annexes, some suit that can do the work of 10 troops. by the end of the year the branch will have a guardian suit that can do hours of physical labor that would be impossible for one person to do alone. the air force, navy and special operations command are working to get their suits as well. new york city using fire hydrants to keep people cool during extremely hot summer days in the city. it has been baking in the city, they open 300 fire hydrants as swimming pools remain closed due to the pandemic. kids and adults alike enjoy the makeshift waterpark.

take this with a grain of salt, it looks a little scary through the next several days, potential for a tropical storm moving into, let's go back, i want to show you that track. let's see if it advances for me. it does. let's look at the computer models. i will show you where the storm is going to go, like florida or the east coast needs to watch this but because we don't have a closed low take this with a grain of salt. we will have a better idea through the next couple days where and when it makes landfall. right now just a storm, the forecast is just for storm, not a hurricane yet. the bottom line is a lot of uncertainty with this. i have spoken too much, back to you. rob: be right back.

>> william barr was very accurate. spying on americans, that is why that report was so important to americans. they tried the russian collusion, it didn't work. william barr had his people come up, they investigated it, nothing there. the fbi at the top level were all corrupt, that is an understatement what those people did in the russia investigation and fisa warrants are the most important thing you can do as a prosecutor coming a warrant to spy on fellow americans, the omitted information. my opinion a falsified information and that warrant to get it and that is why was important, they tried russia collusion, failed, they tried impeachment, failed, yesterday they tried to attack william barr and it failed miserably. they looked like angry bullies
who wanted no answers, thank goodness for jim jordan and the republicans who were there who led william barr answer the question. rob: talking about the riots we are seeing in a number of cities in federal response, william barr said since when is it okay to burn down federal courthouses? a lot of this behavior is being ignored by democrats, nadler saying to someone on the streets this is just the narrative that has been invented, this isn't really happening. what is your response to that? >> they didn't want william barr to answer the question because for the first time all of america, not just conservatives,
the things that were happening inside the federal courthouse, they were hit with objects and molotov cocktails around these areas, when he got to describe that, that was very telling as opposed to false narratives driven by jerry nadler and company, peaceful protests was very telling. rob: they put these on tv and it becomes a political showcase and nothing gets done and you don't learn anything. good to see you, thanks for your time. jillian: a growing number of nfl players because of covid-19 concerns, the latest opting out. .
