It’s not Trump just making shit up, it actually is a security threat and DoD has been issuing warnings for ever.

Oh yeah, you are ignorant
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76702251


I completely agree but how would they get the app removed from everyone's phones and devices who already installed it?

Or would they just stop all traffic from the app?

I'm not sure how all that works.

People who want to ban all imports are next-level retarded. It’s hard to understand how functioning adults can have that opinion. They must work some useless government job.

Re: BREAKING: Trump is banning TikTok!!!!
so much for trump's anti-censorship EO, eh? It doesn't matter how good the pretense sounds, either we have free speech or we don't.. just remember the censorship in nazi Germany started out with the Communists.. and ended with anyone who went against the reich.. patriots ought to be ashamed wake up, don't be hypocrites

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77420690

All these things have followed from the want of a constitution; for it is the nature and intention of a constitution to prevent governing by party, by establishing a common principle that shall limit and control the power and impulse of party, and that says to all parties, thus far shalt thou go and no further. But in the absence of a constitution, men look entirely to party; and instead of principle governing party, party governs principle. An avidity to punish is always dangerous to liberty. It leads men to stretch, to misinterpret, and to misapply even the best of laws. He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.

Does anyone know anything anymore? No, Trump cannot just ban Tiktok. There is currently no law on the books that would allow this. In case some of you nuts haven't figured this out yet, Trump is not a King and cannot just randomly issue decrees.
Go check out some of the scathing rebukes of Trump by the Supreme Court of some of his illegal actions. And yes, I'm aware of the just released opinion on the wall. This is only a temporary order and the case is still pending.

Because the average sheep posting on Tok Tic is holding so very many special and important secrets.

Oh, and their personal data? That is key to stuff like "the little red button." If it was compromised: one can only imagine the disastrous outcomes. What if those gym locker codes were distributed?

Or if the Taco Bell's sauce knockoff formulations people have worked so hard to get right got into the wrong hands?

Thank God they are putting a stop to this kind of reckless madness endangering our citizenry!!
 Quoting: LaGata


Average sheep doesn't matter. All it takes is people using the site who have government positions. Not only that but the data they can get from users from corporations. Maybe the post a private video to someone. Get blackmailed.

China can't be trusted with privacy and shouldn't be in a position to potentially blackmail US citizens.

Re: BREAKING: Trump is banning TikTok!!!!
Wow...looks like HE is the communist if he starts shutting down forms of social media just because he gets a hair across his ass. Again, not giving a fuck that the platform is highly popular WITH THE PEOPLE WHO USE IT...MILLIONS!

And he's really talking his nonsense talk: "We’re looking at TikTok. We may be banning TikTok. We may be doing some other things. There are a couple of options, but a lot of things are happening. So, we’ll see what happens, but we are looking at a lot of alternatives with respect to TikTok,” Tump told reporters today on the South Lawn of the White House on the way to his helicopter.

Swap the word 'TikTok' and the word 'banning' in the above paragraph with ANY TOPIC YOU CAN THINK OF and you have a typical Donald Trump nonsense paragraph.

“We’re looking at a vaccine. We may be getting close to a vaccine. We may be doing some other things. There are a couple of options, but a lot of things are happening. So, we’ll see what happens, but we are looking at a lot of alternatives with respect to vaccine,”

“We’re looking at the stimulus. We may be deciding on a number. We may be doing some other things. There are a couple of options, but a lot of things are happening. So, we’ll see what happens, but we are looking at a lot of alternatives with respect to the stimulus."

"We're looking at healthcare. We may be deciding on some programs. We may be doing some other things. There are a couple of options, but a lot of things are happening. So, we’ll see what happens, but we are looking at a lot of alternatives with respect to healthcare."

"We're looking at immigration. We may be building that wall. We may be doing some other things. There are a couple of options, but a lot of things are happening. So, we’ll see what happens, but we are looking at a lot of alternatives with respect to immigration."

Always the same bullshit, meaningless garbage. He is really, really disappointing me as a PERSON, let alone a president.

SO HE SIGNS AN ORDER RECENTLY BANNING TECH GIANT PLATFORMS FROM CENSORING OPINIONS THEY DON'T LIKE AND NOW HE'S GOING TO BAN (CENSOR) TIKTOK BECAUSE HE DOESN'T LIKE WHO OWNS THE PLATFORM???

another do
 Quoting: thepatrioticgirl


Tik Tok is a Chinese spying app. He can damn sure ban it if he wants to in the name of National Security. He can damn sure make sure the Fed government doesn't use it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78537041


because we don't want anymore Chinese shit.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76809044


Another way of doing the same thing is to prevent Chinese users from accessing an American app that sports US spyware.

Remember, China will retaliate if the US tries to bully, coerce, or punish them.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 48642722


First Amendment to the Constitution guarantees the Right of the People to assemble peaceably and part of these inherent and inalienable liberties include the freedom of association.

This directly violates the Right of the People to associate as they see fit, and undermines the balance of Power between the States and individuals, and the Federal Government.

The Bill of (individual) Rights specifically prohibits the Federal and State Government from violation of enumerated Rights of the People, and prevents the curtailing of liberties enjoyed by the People as individuals and private parties to the nation.

This is essentially a Power grab by the Federal branch, officially subverting the Supreme law of the land under the pretence of security.

People in government positions? You think they plan to post a tik tok of them entering codes to launch missiles, access computer databases, etc?

Think about this for one hot second. People are fired for so much as implying that "all lives matter." You think anything other than scrolling and laughing at videos is going to be tolerated for employees working at a politically-correct company/government entity?

Believe me, I am a crazy-ass prepper, pro-gun, pro-death penalty, etc. etc. and am aware of and concerned about plenty of conspiracy theories. But I draw the line at full-blown paranoia.

Re: BREAKING: Trump is banning TikTok!!!!
Every video posted to tiktok is run through a AI supercomputer al gore rhythm to look for things like :

~products made in china on person and in background
~preferences in political policy
~angry facial expressions and what that person is talkin bout to upset them
~average agility of population ie. strength, balance etc.

the list goes on and on. The videos are geotagged with the location and time of the poster, and cross referenced to link that user data with the main spy database containing other stolen data such as credit scores, occupation and military training.

The supercomputer is able to give relevant data because it filters through billions of videos and can draw conclusive information which is also of military value.

tiktok is a virtual live cam of every part of america for the CCP, they don't need spy sats or spys because americans are freely giving the CCP their private information, which en mass is very telling of a populations social, geopolitical and physical health positions.
