So, all of these other companies that are out there that are an alternative to Big Tech, we believe we help them all, a rising tide lifts all the boats that are fighting against these tech tyrants.
The photo component of this is very slick, very simple, very slick, this is a quality, user-friendly product.

In terms of me, yes, i am very excited. As someone who has been suppressed by social media and tech companies, I am excited about it. I am really excited.
I think that one is the one where we were most out on front, we were doing a really good job, but what happened with the Russia hoax, it destroyed us, this is not Trump's fault or Republicans' fault, it is the left's fault for derailing the whole country and taking our focus off of what we should have been focusing on, which is this China problem.

The Democrats cooperated in Ukrainian election meddling and they defend Hunter Biden's securing of a lavishly paid position with a corrupt Ukrainian company, all while Hunter Biden father served as vice president.
We have Americans and foreigners contact us every single day with information.
We have records showing Democrats were heavily involved with Ukraine in 2016.
They know exactly what kind of damage they're inflicting on this nation. But they've passed the point of no return.
You're gagging the young lady from New York ?
Now that the whistleblower has successfully kick-started impeachment, he has disappeared from the story, as if House Democrats ' put the whistleblower in Jim Himes own witness protection program.
I'm not exactly sure what the ambassador is doing here today.
One of the mothers of all conspiracy theories is that somehow the President of United States would want a country that he doesn't even like, that he doesn't want to give foreign aid to, to have the Ukrainians start an investigation into Bidens.
As of right now, they are giving us no witnesses.
I should make the House aware that ... at 4 o'clock this afternoon the DNI is going to transmit the complaint to the intelligence committees where all the Intelligence Committee members will have an opportunity to read it.
I was often smeared.
When Fox News ' comes to Republicans asking questions, I think what we need to do is stick to the facts of the case and not allow Mueller time to either pontificate and embellish all the time or embellish things that he may want to embellish, this investigation was not about collusion. It wasn't about obstruction of justice. It was about setting obstruction of justice traps so for the better part of two years they were hoping the President would fall into it.
I saidbefore this report is madepublic, it should be given tothe defense and including theformer defense attorney likeJohn Dowd, to be able to gothrough it with a fine-toothcomb, find problems with it [and] file a report stating thedefendants position at the sametime, so the American public canjudge which is more credible.
What do I want about The Mueller report ? I don't care what's in The Mueller report. Matter of fact, I call it the Mueller dossier, what I want is the information underlying The Mueller report, so that we can actually look into it. Because every time we peel back the onion in this case, what do we find ? We find out that, somehow, higher-level officials within the DOJ and FBI were misleading the American people and the courts.
They need to retract everything they did against me, but they also need to come clean with the American people.
For two years we've been force feeding this Russia Kool-Aid to the American people, now this thing has just gone on so long that it is scary to see the mainstream media, many Americans who have brought into this Russia Kool-Aid. It's really, really scary.
We believe that the depositions that we took... those need to be published and they need to be published I think before the election.
This could be done in the next few hours. And the fact it's not being done should worry the heck out of the American people.
Providing a defensive briefing, like the one given to Senator Feinstein, is a typical response to these kinds of situations, the refusal to give the Trump campaign a defensive briefing, and instead opening a sprawling counter-intelligence investigation of American citizens, is one of many alarming ways that intelligence leaders drastically diverged from normal procedures in their Trump campaign investigation.
If we actually vote to impeach, what that does is that triggers the Senate then has to take it up.
They are putting all their chips in on that the Republicans will lose the White House and all of these investigations will shut down.
Now you would think, if you thought the Russians were colluding with the President Donald Trump campaign, and that there was this massive event taking place, to where the Russians were trying to help President Donald Trump get elected and they were colluding and passing information or dumping emails in the direction of them, you would've thought that Congress would've been briefed back in 2016.
I think the American people are beginning to see what we’ve been after for a very long time, and that is—is it common, or does it happen, that counterintelligence agencies in this country…are they used to target campaigns?
Christopher Steele was hired by the Democratic Party and the Hillary Clinton campaign to dig up dirt on Trump and his associates. That made its way to the FBI and to the State Department, at the same time, it appears you have multiple people in a six-week period from April to June that are making offers of selling some kind of dirt on Hillary Clinton from Russia to the Trump campaign…or maybe the FBI was running people in.
If documents do not begin to be turned over tomorrow and a clear way and path forward for everything else is not clear here in the next couple days, there's going to be hell to pay by Wednesday morning.
They are citing spurious national security concerns to evade congressional oversight while leaking information to The Washington Post ostensibly about classified meetings, congress has a right and a duty to get this information and we will succeed in getting this information, regardless of whatever fantastic stories the DOJ and FBI spin to The Washington Post.
It wasn't a threat, it's what's going to happen.
We're not going to just hold in contempt, we will have a plan to hold in contempt and to impeach.
So what we found now, after the investigators have reviewed it, is that in fact there was House Intelligence Committee.
House Oversight Committee has discovered serious violations of the public trust.
Well, I can just tell you we're not just going to hold in contempt -- we will have a plan to hold in contempt and to impeach.
The report, which will include minority views if the minority submits them, presents the comprehensive results of what the Committee has learned during its fourteen-month-long investigation, and will be useful in thwarting any attempts by Russia or any other foreign powers to further meddle in U.S. elections.
After more than a year, the Committee has finished its Russia investigation and will now work on completing our report, i’d like to thank Congressmen Trey Gowdy, Tom Rooney, and especially Mike Conaway for the excellent job they’ve done leading this investigation. I’d also like to recognize the hard work undertaken by our other Committee members as well as our staff. Once the Committee’s final report is issued, we hope our findings and recommendations will be useful for improving security and integrity for the 2018 midterm elections.
This is something that we grappled with.
There is a, there’s a debate now into whether just send it to the Supreme Court or to send it to the FISA Court, if, somehow, this case ends up at the Supreme Court, somehow, some way, by sending a letter to Roberts, do you conflict the court?
Having stonewalled Congress’ demands for information for nearly a year, it’s no surprise to see the FBI and DOJ issue spurious objections to allowing the American people to see information related to surveillance abuses at these agencies.
We now know why Strzok was dismissed, why the FBI and DOJ refused to provide us this explanation, and at least one reason why they previously refused to make [FBI] Deputy Director [Andrew] McCabe available to theCommittee for an interview.
I believe it is in the best interests of the House Intelligence Committee and the Congress for me to have Rep. Mike Conaway, with assistance from Reps. Trey Gowdy and Tom Rooney, temporarily take charge of the committee's Russia investigation while the House Ethics Committee looks into this matter. I will continue to fulfill all my other responsibilities as committee chairman.
I don't talk about intelligence.
I think we're near agreement on bringing in both the witnesses that we want and the witnesses Nunes wants. Prior to doing that, we need to get the documents from these witnesses so that we'll understand what questions we want to ask. Obviously some of these folks we may only get one crack at.
What's important is that this committee does its investigation on a bipartisan basis to get to the bottom of things and go investigate all things Russia. That's what this committee is going to do.
This business is always hard and politics is always hard, but I'm used to that, i don't really listen to what anyone says. I was very clear and transparent with all of you, and the statement still stands -- which is: I had a duty and obligation to go tell the President of the United States.
This business is always hard and politics is always hard, but I'm used to that.
I don't really listen to what anyone says.
That's not asking for immunity, i mean that's not a direct request for immunity from what I can see. Look, all that happened is there was an initial discussion about scheduling -- that was it. I think people just jump on this based on things that get leaked or half-truths.
I needed a place I could go and find this information and review it … There was no sneaking around.
As somebody who supports our national security apparatus, it bothered me that this level of information would be included in intelligence reports, because it just wasn't necessary, from my point of view -- legal or not.
The Congress has not been given this information, these documents, and that's the problem.
There was no way I could view that because they couldn't get it to the House Intelligence Committee.
The Congress has not been given this information, these documents, and that's the problem, this is Executive Branch.
I have a lot more friends, that’s definitely for sure, every time I’m on the (House) floor, I have members coming up to me.
We’re not going to get into neo-McCarthyism era where we just start bringing in Americans just because they were mentioned in a press story.
There was no wiretapping of Trump Tower -- that did n’t happen.
What I've read bothers me.
I recently confirmed on numerous occasions the intelligence community incidentally collected intelligence.
This is a normal, incidental collection, based on what I could collect, this appears to be all legally collected foreign intelligence under.
We're working on the next stage but that's not yet. Right now we've given people the opportunity to come forward freely to testify publicly, you know this week, next week, and then at that point we have to decide where we go from there.
At the end of all that you'll have people in separate corners, and, honestly, look, a lot depends on the FBI. What are they actually going to get? Now, obviously they said they have an investigation, well great -- go investigate, tell us what you have.
I don't think that's a problem, at the end of the day there could be disagreements, which I expect there to be disagreements -- you're not going to get 435 members to agree on anything. I think there will be some things we can agree on, some things we won't be able to agree on, but at the end of the day I think we'll be able to put together a useful report.
There is a big, gray cloud that you have now put over people who have very important work leading the country.
The president doesn’t go and physically wiretap something, but the other issue out there is the unmasking of names, the leaking of names. That happened to [former National Security Adviser] Michael Flynn. The concern we have is: Are there any other surveillance activities in the unmasking of names?
We need to figure out what happened here, there's a lot of unanswered question. I just don't want anybody jumping to any conclusion on any side of this, other than the fact that we know that Obama didn't physically wiretap Trump Tower, but everything else is still ... there's a lot of unknowns.
I don't believe Trump Tower was tapped.
We don't have any evidence that that took place and, in fact, I don't believe -- just in the last week of time, the people we've talked to -- I don't think there was an actual tap of Trump Tower.
I'll let my comments stand from the other day, which I still think are the same, we are very interested in looking into anything to do with (the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) -- especially FISA on any Americans.
What we're trying to get to the bottom of, is how did the assessment on December 5 that they gave us, how did it radically change -- with the major change being that specifically that the Russians were trying to get Donald Trump elected, and that's what we're trying to get to the bottom of, it's just a major shift we need to understand and we're the oversight body.
What I'm assuming is, is that this was picked up as they were tracking someone else, and if that's the case, that would have had to go up to the highest levels of the Obama administration to get approval to unmask who [the non-targeted party was], and in this case, it was General Flynn.
We heard from a lot of whistle-blowers and other informants who have given us information. And not just … related strictly to the latest allegations.

More alarming, what we hear the president and his senior officials saying to the public - it just doesn't jive with, what they're saying in public and what we see on the ground.
We travel to many of these countries and we meet with the people on the ground and it's almost all the time, what we hear and see on the ground when we talk to the folks that are actually doing the work, is grimmer than the intelligence reports.
We're trying to gather all the facts, we've heard from a lot of whistleblowers and other informers.
We did have many of these people identified, but there are so many thousands and thousands of them, and they're all over Western Europe and even in the United States, and then with the technology they're using today and the rules and the lessons that they've learned through fighting us the last 15 years, they've gotten very good at hiding from intelligence services across the globe.
There's nothing specific, except for the threat that they've been putting out there on the Internet, so at this point, we have to take everything seriously.
We're in a new era of politics, this is all about marketing.
I've met with a lot of conservative Republicans over the last four days, and they are not happy, they want something done and they want something done now because we look like a party that can't govern. And when they understand that over 200 of us were supporting Boehner and were also willing to support [Kevin] McCarthy and also wiling to support Paul Ryan. This is starting to not make sense to our conservative Republican base.
This battle is guided by our intelligence community, which has the difficult task of gathering reliable information about terrorists who inhabit dangerous parts of the world. Although our intelligence is outstanding, it is not perfect.
If we had stored water and built three new dams, the state would be flush with water.
The environmental groups did not expect to run everyone out of water, but they got greedy, shut down the whole system, and ran the whole damned state dry.
If they issue a veto threat or say anything negative about this legislation, it's dead.

ISIL presents a growing threat not only in Syria and Iraq, but throughout the Middle East, North Africa, Europe, and now in the United States as well, terrorists and their enablers will continue to receive the unwavering attention of law enforcement and the intelligence community.
