President Donald Trump received widespread outcry from many members of his own party after he blindsided officials by announcing a withdrawal of the 2,000 American troops in Syria, defying advisors and defense officials. Trump cited the defeat of ISIS as his reason for leaving (defense experts insist that ISIS isn't totally defeated).

After years of violating the terms of service (TOS) agreements for Facebook, YouTube, Spotify, Apple and Twitter, four of the five platforms finally removed Alex Jones and his Infowars content from their sites and banned him.

As a result of repeatedly violating the various platforms' terms of service, Jones got banned. And because Jones got banned, his revenue dropped drastically.

Senator Marco Rubio turned heads with an interview with The Economist recently in which he admitted:

“There is still a lot of thinking on the right that if big corporations are happy, they’re going to take the money they’re saving and reinvest it in American workers.
