Parler Sues Amazon, Asks Court to Reinstate Platform

Social media company Parler sued Amazon on Monday, alleging that the Seattle-based firm’s hosting service violated anti-trust laws and their contractual agreement.

The company, which was taken offline by Amazon’s services early Monday morning, asked a federal judge in Washington state to reject Amazon’s shutdown of its services.

Parler argued that Amazon’s move was “motivated by political animus” and designed to reduce competition to benefit Twitter. Twitter is a customer of Amazon Web Services’ division.

The emergency order asked a judge to reject Amazon’s shutdown of Parler’s account and said it is akin to “pulling the plug on a hospital patient on life support.”

Amazon “will kill Parler’s business—at the very time it is set to skyrocket,” Parler’s complaint said.

“When Twitter announced two evenings ago that it was permanently banning President Trump from its platform, conservative users began to flee Twitter en masse for Parler. The exodus was so large that the next day, yesterday, Parler became the number one free app downloaded from Apple’s App Store,” the lawsuit reads.

The Epoch Times reached out to Amazon for comment on Monday.

In recent months, Parler saw an upsurge in popularity—particularly among big-name conservatives—due to the company’s moderation policies.

Other than Amazon, Google and Apple took the Parler app down from the companies’ respective app stores. Those companies accused Parler of allowing content they viewed as dangerous to be posted on the platform.

The Amazon Trust and Safety team told Parler that it would suspend web hosting because the firm “poses a very real risk to public safety.”

As of Monday, Parler’s website appeared to be offline.

The move came after a small number of protesters breached the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6 in the midst of the Joint Session of Congress, following a speech from President Donald Trump.

Parler CEO John Matze said Sunday there was a possibility that Parler would be unavailable for “up to a week” and said the firm may have to “rebuild from scratch.” His team would seek an alternative web hosting service in the meantime.

Matze wrote in a post: “We have our software and everyone’s data ready to go. Rather it’s that Amazon’s, Google’s and Apple’s statements to the press about dropping our access has caused most of our other vendors to drop their support for us as well. And most people with enough servers to host us have shut their doors to us.”

Chief Policy Officer Amy Peikoff said the collusion between Big Tech firms to take down the website is akin to a dystopia.

“Do we want all of the content that is posted online, every single piece to be scanned for ‘objectionable content,’ as they call it, 24/7 and also removed without due process if it’s flagged by an algorithm because that seems to be the standard that Parler is being told that we must adhere to,” she said.

Author's note at the end o each post: -"Your biggest problems are so small for such a big God"-Ella Cruz" The Bible is the blueprint of Faith and the New Testament has given us God’s kind of faith and the authority to perform miracles through faith and through the name of Jesus. No matter what level of cancer we are; we can be healed by our faith and the word of God because Jesus did not care in what stage of death were the three people whom he raised from the dead. "The first time he invaded the realm of death was the daughter of Jairus, an official in Jerusalem. She was “just” dead. The second time the son of a widow in Nain was “one day” dead, and the third time Lazarus, brother of Mary and Martha in Bethany was “very” dead after three days, and he raised them “all.” It doesn’t matter how big is our problem, how long we have buried our problem and how hopeless we are because Jesus is the resurrection and the light."-Ella Cruz World's events are happening so fast. Putting Global Governance 2015, Agenda 2030, Agenda 2050, Antartica, Mars, CERN, G5, The United Nations, The European Union, the Club of Rome and the false prophets of the Vatican all together, we see that the satanic global government of these elites is imminent and it shall come to pass. The mark of the beast will be obligatory. You are either a Christian and believe this because this is what was predicted 2000 years ago through the Bible, or you are not a Christian but you read all these articles and connect the dots and notice that the satanic world government is their agenda and with President Trump we had 7-8 years that two of it have already passed and this was God's mercy on us. Their Global Governance 2025 matches the end of POTUS's second term. Their Green New Deal's 12 years matches the agenda 2030. The immigration and devouring America and Europe all go according to the blueprint of one world satanic government. We have a short time to prepare ourselves. But why we, born again Christians are happy and calm? Why we; who know that our day of prosecution, chasing Christians and forcing the mark of the beast will come, but we joyfully dedicate ourselves to the nation? What is the difference between us; evangelist Christians and normal Christians? 1- We believe Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God. 2- We believe the Bible is the word of God. 3-We believe God had so much loved us that he gave his only begotten son to die on the cross and through his blood, all our sins are washed away and forgiven. 4- We believe the price of our salvation, health, prosperity, happiness, and eternal life is paid by the blood of Jesus and we have all these gifts in us when we are born again. By his stripes, we are healed 2000 years ago. 5-We believe by accepting Jesus Christ as our savior, we open our hearts to the Holy Spirit and are baptized by him who will dwell in us and will reveal himself through dreams, visions, or may use speeches, videos, books to communicate with us. 6- We believe Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever and we have the same DNA as Jesus Christ with the same miraculous abilities through faith. Just as the Apostles did the same signs and wonders as our Lord Jesus, through "faith," he; the Lord will accomplish the same miracles through us after we accept him as our savior. 7-We condemn the religion and all the fake prophets of the Vatican who deceived Christians for centuries and hid the true message of the Bible and the Good News from people to keep themselves in power. We welcome all denominations. 8- We believe that a born again Christian doesn't die and the moment his life on earth is ended, he is promoted to heaven immediately. There is no death for us, we just change the dimension and the other dimension is filled with immerse, joy, love, peace and glory of God. All people who had a personal visit, vision, dream or prophecy with Jesus or people who died for a short time, left their body and came back, know how does this experience feel. It is a divine relief and joy. Therefore, to answer the above question, we can happily die right now. In fact we would love to die yesterday but each one of us has a mission and purpose of life which the Holy Spirit has revealed to us after our born again experience and because of that mission, although we know our day of prosecution will come, but we are joyful and relaxed in the spirit because by preaching the Gospel and bringing people to Jesus we save them. To be born again, you just need to say: Lord Jesus, I accept you as my personal savior, Come to my heart, Forgive my sins, Wash me away, Make me a new person, And live inside of me. In the Name of Jesus from Nazareth, Amen. And that's it. You are saved. He will reveal himself to you and your life will dramatically change. Your marriage, your health (especially addiction), your finances and all areas of your life will experience this extraordinary change. And never look back. In Jesus name. Amen.
