WASHINGTON, D.C., January 7, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — In an unprecedented move, social media giant Facebook has banned President Donald Trump from its platform “indefinitely,” alleging that he is seeking to “undermine” the transition of power to Joe Biden.
Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the news on his Facebook profile this afternoon: “The shocking events of the last 24 hours clearly demonstrate that President Donald Trump intends to use his remaining time in office to undermine the peaceful and lawful transition of power to his elected successor, Joe Biden.”
The Big Tech company was referring to hundreds of protestors entering the Capitol building yesterday, while the official counting of the electoral college vote was ongoing. Blame has been leveled at Trump for promoting the protests, though evidence is now emerging suggesting that antifa activists were actually involved in inciting the crowds.
Zuckerberg continued: “His decision to use his platform to condone rather than condemn the actions of his supporters at the Capitol building has rightly disturbed people in the US and around the world. We removed these statements yesterday because we judged that their effect — and likely their intent — would be to provoke further violence.”
Zuckerberg wrote that while Facebook “allowed President Trump to use our platform consistent with our own rules … the current context is now fundamentally different, involving use of our platform to incite violent insurrection against a democratically elected government.”
Pictured above c.2009: Lisa Miller with her daughter Isabella
More than 10 years ago, in 2009, Lisa Miller took her daughter Isabella and traveled to Nicaragua because of her deep concern that her daughter was being "traumatized" by court-ordered visits with her former lesbian partner.
Two court-appointed advocates – one clinical therapist and one social worker – testified to the apparent trauma experienced by Isabella in sworn testimony. And, Miller, herself, also testified to the apparent trauma experienced by her daughter.
Other affidavits filed with the courts at that time alleged that abuse was taking place.
And so, in 2009, Miller decided to take action and remove Isabella from a deteriorating situation, traveling to Central America.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which asks President Trump to show clemency to all involved with the Lisa Miller case by granting them a presidential pardon.
Since 2009, three other people – including two Mennonite pastors and a businessman – who helped Lisa and Isabella travel to Nicaragua were convicted of “international kidnapping” for helping Lisa and her daughter, despite the fact that Lisa had custody of her daughter when they went to Central America.
These Mennonite pastors and businessman have already served their time in federal prisons, but their unjust convictions are a stain on their records.
And now, even though Isabella is considered a legal adult, Lisa Miller is still forced to “hide out” abroad, away from her home country.
The time has come to call an end to the Millers’ exile.
Please SIGN this petition, urging President Trump to issue all involved with Lisa a presidential pardon, and give the Millers a chance to freely return to the United States.
President Trump has been an unwavering ally to the Christian community, and he and his administration have done more for the pro-life cause and religious freedom than all other administrations combined.
By pardoning Lisa and the men who helped her and her daughter, President Trump could once again show his solidarity with the Christians who support and love him and continue to stand with him.
At the time that these events transpired, Miller thought she was doing the right thing to protect her daughter and she has already “served time” in exile.
Therefore, a presidential pardon could never be taken to mean that an actual kidnapping won't be pursued by federal authorities in the future.
But, given the special set of circumstances in this particular case, we urge President Trump to issue the pardon because the time the Millers have spent abroad – away from family, friends, and colleagues – could be considered “time served.”
And, by pardoning Lisa, President Trump could also give Isabella a new lease on life. By pardoning Kenneth Miller and Timothy Miller (who are unrelated to Lisa and Isabella) and Christian businessman Philip Zodhiates, President Trump could clear their records and give them a new lease on life, too.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this urgent petition.

“We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great. Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.”
The move comes hours after Twitter suspended the president’s account for 12 hours, having deleted some of his tweets for the first time ever shortly before. Some of the president’s messages still remain, in which he urged protestors to “respect the Law.”
Despite the president calling for peace and posting a video repeating the same call, telling supporters to “go home,” Twitter claimed that the video posed “a risk of violence.” If the tweets are not removed after the 12 hours suspension is lifted, then “the account will remain locked.”
While Trump’s video message yesterday was removed by YouTube, his account still remains on the video platform at time of writing.
However, it is not just social media companies who are launching a digital purge of the president’s online presence, as Shopify has deregistered the Trump Store, claiming that Trump had violated the company policy of promoting violence.
In a statement made to TechCrunch, the company said: “Based on recent events, we have determined that the actions by President Donald J. Trump violate our Acceptable Use Policy, which prohibits promotion or support of organizations, platforms or people that threaten or condone violence to further a cause. As a result, we have terminated stores affiliated with President Trump.”
