S.D. Gov. Noem Signs Executive Order Banning TikTok on State-Owned Devices

Amid the growing number of lawmakers expressing national security concerns over the Communist Chinese-owned social media app TikTok, Republican Governor of South Dakota Kristi Noem signed an executive order banning its use on state devices.

On Nov. 29, Gov. Noem signed Executive Order 2022-10, banning the use of TikTok by state employees, agencies, and contractors using state-owned electronic devices.

“This order is in response to the growing national security threat posed by TikTok due to its data gathering operations on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP),” reads a Nov. 29 press release.      .............

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

I like Noem and think she would make a good President, but on the other hand we need as many conservative governors in place as possible.

  • I was a "conspiracy theorist". Now I'm just right.
Very good.

She not only acknowledges the problem, but did something about it.

Hopefully, that will help make others aware as well.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
