Republican Congressional Candidate Blasts Twitter’s New “Loomer Policy” for Verifying Political Candidates

PALM BEACH, FL – Republican congressional candidate Laura Loomer blasted Twitter for changing their verification policy just hours after she announced her candidacy for Congress calling Twitter’s new “Laura Loomer Policy” a “license for trolls to interfere in U.S. elections by making fake accounts about candidates for office.”

Loomer, who announced her candidacy to much fanfare last week, was trending number one on Twitter despite being banned from the social media site.

The congressional seat is currently held by Democrat Lois Frankel, a staunch obstructionist and critic of President Donald J. Trump, and a close friend and ally of Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“Twitter is literally giving foreign governments, radical activists, and campaign dirty tricksters a license to steal legitimate candidates’ identities,” said Loomer.  “What is big tech so scared of?”

Loomer pointed to big tech’s censorship of Senator McConnell’s campaign, President Trump and countless other conservative causes as a “threat to our democracy by limiting our first amendment.”

Loomer also noted that while Twitter continues to censor conservatives, the tech giant refuses to use its resources to curb violence from the left.

Tech titans’ censorship combined with the political violence incited and sustained by far-left politicians like Ilhan Omar and Maxine Waters, and carried out by Antifa, makes it clear that Republicans are under attack. I will support my Republican colleagues in passing legislation that criminalizes this behavior.”

Loomer is a pro-America, Jewish conservative with a strong history of supporting President Trump and Jewish causes both here in America, and abroad. As a well-known conservative journalist, Loomer frequently travels to Israel.  Loomer decided to run for Congress after being banned from nearly every social media platform for her support of President Trump, and her damning investigative exposés. She reached out to her representative Lois Frankel who offered her no help despite claiming to be a First Amendment supporter.

Laura Loomer launches Florida congressional bid

Says opponent has abandoned her constituents in favor of radical special interests

PALM BEACH, Fla.—Conservative investigative journalist Laura Loomer has filed to run for Congress in Florida’s 21st congressional district. Loomer is a resident of the district.

The congressional seat is currently held by Democrat Lois Frankel, a staunch obstructionist and critic of President Donald J. Trump, and a close friend and ally of Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Frankel, despite chairing the Democrat Congressional Women’s Caucus has refused to denounce Freshmen Democrat Reps. Ilhan Omar, AOC, and Rashida Tlaib for their anti-Semitism.

While Frankel ran unopposed in 2018, she will not have that luxury in 2020.

“My opponent cares far more about radical leftist special interests, her anti-Semitic colleagues, and protecting criminal illegal aliens from deportation than about her district and constituents here in Florida who she’s supposed to be working for, not against,” said Loomer.

Loomer is a pro-America, Jewish conservative with a strong history of supporting President Trump and Jewish causes both here in America, and abroad. Loomer frequently travels to Israel.

As a well-known conservative journalist, Loomer decided to run for Congress after being banned from nearly every social media platform for her support of President Trump, and her damning investigative exposés. She reached out to her representative Lois Frankel who offered her no help despite claiming to be a First Amendment supporter.

“Big-Tech censorship of conservatives is an issue of growing importance to Americans. Social media giants, run almost exclusively by far-left Democrat mega-donors have weaponized their platforms, data, and algorithms to tilt the dialogue in favor of Democrats in the 2020 election cycle,” said Loomer. “Tech titans’ censorship combined with the political violence incited and sustained by far-left politicians like Ilhan Omar and Maxine Waters, and carried out by Antifa, makes it clear that Republicans are under attack. I will support my Republican colleagues in passing legislation that criminalizes this behavior.”

Loomer selected a proven Republican strategist to lead her campaign team. Karen Giorno has joined the Laura Loomer for Congress Inc., campaign as the general consultant. She is working with a powerhouse steering committee of well-respected political, national security, law enforcement, and high profile Trump supporters.

Giorno was credited with winning the Florida presidential Primary in 2016 as the State Director for the Donald J. Trump for President Inc., campaign. She was elevated to the National team as a Senior Political Advisor, Chairwoman of Trump Coalitions and Director of the Women for Trump 2016 surrogate tour working with Lara Trump in the General election.

“With Laura Loomer now in the FL CD-21 race, the Republican Party’s odds of flipping a blue district increases exponentially. Loomer’s platform, presence and the way she stands up for real people is bold, brave and attractive to many Florida Republicans, Independents, first time voters, Millennials, and moderate Democrats who reject their party’s radical shift to full blown Communist-Socialist ideals. FL CD21 is Trump country, and Loomer’s national celebrity, ability to raise money, awareness and a grassroots army will make her a force to be reckoned with,” said Giorno.

LAURA LOOMER DEFENDS JOURNALISM CREDENTIALS: ‘I HAVE HAD FIVE DRUDGE HEADLINES THIS YEAR ALONE’

LAURA LOOMER DEFENDS JOURNALISM CREDENTIALS: ‘I HAVE HAD FIVE DRUDGE HEADLINES THIS YEAR ALONE’

ar-right activist Laura Loomer, who often propagates conspiracy theories online, responded to criticism about her credibility by saying she had five headlines on the right-wing Drudge Report.

Loomer was responding to a message posted by a women’s march staffer, Sophie Ellman-Golan, who tweeted that Loomer is “not a journalist. She’s a troll who intentionally spreads false information.”

Loomer hit back, tweeting that “I have had 5 Drudge headlines *this year* alone.”

“1. I have a journalism degree

2. My journalism degree says Suma Cum Laude because I was top of my class and had a 4.0 GPA

3. My journalism and investigative findings have been reported by every MSM outlet in the US.

4. I have had 5 Drudge headlines *this year* alone.”

Loomer, who refers to herself as an “investigative journalist,” previously worked for Project Veritas, an organization known for its dishonestly edited videos that take aim at right-wing hate targets with little regard for the truth.

She has painted mass shootings as false flag operations and fake stories.

“It’s obvious these kids are reading a screen or notes someone else wrote for them,” she wrote after the Parkland shooting. “Notice how media is only talking to the same group of students. They aren’t talking to the pro gun ROTC students who actually saved lives, unlike these students.”

After the Santa Fe High School shooting in May, she wrote “The doctor speaking to media outside the hospital in Santa Fe, TX where victims of a school shooting were taken today said they just had a “mass casualty drill” at the hospital around the same time of the school drill. I’m sorry, but I can’t help but notice these “coincidences”.”

Snopes reported that the doctor said the hospital conducts such drills every quarter.

Loomer has repeatedly drawn national attention for disrupting events.

In March she was removed from a courthouse during a trial for the Pulse nightclub shooter’s widow, Noor Salman, after she harassed Salman’s family.

Last year, she interrupted a performance of “Julius Caesar” in New York’s Central Park, by shouting “stop the normalization of political violence against the right.” She continued, yelling “You guys are ISIS! CNN is ISIS!”

After last year’s terrorist attack in New York, Loomer posted a string of Islamophobic tweets.

“Someone needs to create a non Islamic form of @uber or @lyft because I never want to support another Islamic immigrant driver,” she wrote. “I’m late to the NYPD press conference because I couldn’t find a non Muslim cab or @Uber @lyft driver for over 30 min!”

Both Uber and Lyft subsequently banned her.

Her discriminatory remarks last year fit into a broader ideology Loomer has promoted on Twitter. She has repeatedly posted Islamophobic sentiments.

Loomer did not comment prior to publication.

LAURA LOOMER TRESPASSES ON CALIFORNIA GOVERNOR MANSION IN ‘FIESTA’ IMMIGRATION PROTEST WEARING SOMBRERO

LAURA LOOMER TRESPASSES ON CALIFORNIA GOVERNOR MANSION IN ‘FIESTA’ IMMIGRATION PROTEST WEARING SOMBRERO

Right-wing activist figure Laura Loomer was arrested for trespassing at the mansion of California Governor Gavin Newsom last week.

Loomer, fellow agitator Ben Bergquam and others held a so-called “fiesta” on Newsom’s property on Wednesday to protest his position on immigration, according to The Sacramento Bee. They live-streamed the demonstration. Both were arrested.

“We are here at the Casa de Gavin, guys. That was such an easy fence to get over,” Loomer, wearing a serape and a sombrero, said in footage of the incident.

“Everybody, everybody is welcome. Casa de Gavin. Everybody is welcome. Illegals, Illegals, Casa de Gavin is open,” said Bergquam, who wore a serape, a sombrero and a fake mustache.

“Today I proved that Gavin Newsom, the governor of California who is also Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, cares more about illegals than Americans,” Loomer wrote on Facebook. “I was arrested for hopping his fence and having a fiesta on his lawn.”

“Our purpose, why we were there, was to expose the hypocrisy of Gavin Newsom and the Democrats,” Bergquam told The Sacramento Bee. “We did it in a comical way.”

Loomer staged and live-streamed a similar event on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s property last month. She jumped the fence around Pelosi’s California house and set up a tent to protest the legislator’s immigration stance.

The right-wing figure said she had brought undocumented immigrants to Pelosi’s house after meeting them at Home Depot and convincing them to accompany her, according to The Daily Beast. The men may not have known what Loomer was enlisting them in, and law enforcement authorities who reported to the scene focused on the three men and their lack of documentation, rather than Loomer, the outlet said.

Loomer has held a number of protests since she was kicked off Twitter in November 2018.

Last month, she interrupted a speaker during the Women’s March in Washington D.C. and shouted “the Women’s March does not represent Jewish people” and “what about the Jews?”

The Women’s March has faced allegations of anti-Semitism. Vanessa Wruble, one of the group’s founders who is Jewish, said she was forced out because of her heritage.

After being removed from the social media platform, Loomer chained herself to Twitter headquarters in Manhattan while shouting “I am not going to stand by as people like Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg [try to] silence the voices of millions of conservatives.”

Loomer had previously made headlines for getting banned from Uber and Lyft after tweeting anti-immigrant sentiments and for interrupting a controversial performance of Julius Caesar in New York.

LAURA LOOMER SHOWED UP AT THE WOMEN’S MARCH, SCREAMING ‘WHAT ABOUT THE JEWS’

LAURA LOOMER SHOWED UP AT THE WOMEN’S MARCH, SCREAMING ‘WHAT ABOUT THE JEWS’

Laura Loomer interrupted a speaker during the Women’s March in Washington D.C. on Saturday. In a video shared on Twitter, the right-wing activist appeared onstage attempting to speak over a woman standing at a podium.

Loomer shouted claims about the organizers of the march being anti-Jewish. “The Women’s March does not represent Jewish people,” she yelled, adding that the Women’s March was a Nazi organization.

Security escorted Loomer off stage, but she didn’t leave without repeatedly screaming at the crowd: “What about the Jews?”

Thousands arrived at the nation’s capital for the third year of the rally, despite the Women’s March organization spending the majority of last year in utter chaos. Top members within the organization were accused of anti-Semitism after one of the organization’s founders, Vanessa Wruble, claimed she was pushed out of the group because of her Jewish heritage.

The organization’s secretive financial dealings were also exposed in the midst of ongoing disputes between members and other women groups regarding the ownership and naming of the Women’s March. Turmoil within the organization has led to some members requesting the resignation of the national group’s co-chairs.

Loomer’s antics came just a few days after the alt-right attention-seeker allegedly trespassed at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s home in Napa Valley, California. Loomer appeared in a video attempting to open Pelosi’s door with three “undocumented” men she tricked into joining her crusade. The purpose of Loomer’s actions, according to conspiracy theorist and blogger Jacob Wohl, who posted the video on Twitter on Thursday, was to prove Pelosi’s “mansion isn’t a sanctuary for illegal aliens.”

Loomer, who reportedly met the men at a Home Depot parking lot and persuaded them to join her protest, convinced the men to chant “You’re killing us Nancy!” after discovering the congressional leader’s door was locked, according to The Daily Beast.
