A bipartisan group of U.S. lawmakers say TikTiok's ability to collect user data poses serious national-security and privacy risks. In a recent Twitter post, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) reacted to last month's congressional testimony from the video-sharing app's CEO, Shou Zi Chew:
It's very concerning that the CEO of TikTok can't be honest and admit what we already know to be true — China has access to TikTok user data. The House will be moving forward with legislation to protect Americans from the technological tentacles of the Chinese Communist Party.
That legislation is called the "RESTRICT Act," and critics call it "the Patriot Act on steroids" because of it's threat to free speech. See yesterday's message below to find out why FOX News' Tucker Carlson warns that the bill will give "terrifying new powers to the federal government." Or click here now to demand Congress ban TikTok and reject the RESTRICT Act.
Thanks, in advance, for taking action to support America's founding principles of life, liberty and limited government.

Demand Republicans "Ban TikTok!" AND "Reject The RESTRICT Act!"
Many Americans think a ban on TikTok is a good idea, especially since the video-sharing app has ties to China's government. The social-media program's parent company won't deny that it shares user data with the Chinese Communist Party.
But is the "RESTRICT Act" the right way for Congress to ban TikTok? Critics say the legislation threatens millions of Americans' free-speech rights. They call the bill: "Orwellian," a "Trojan horse" and "the Patriot Act on steroids."
FOX News host Tucker Carlson says the bill to ban TikTok will grant Congress "terrifying new powers." On a recent edition of "Tucker Carlson Tonight," he noted some of the threats posed by the popular photo-sharing app. But Carlson also warned of a hidden agenda in the RESTRICT Act:
"In reality -- and you should know this if you're opposed to TikTok, as we are -- this bill isn't really about banning TikTok. It's never about what they say it is. Instead, this bill would give enormous and terrifying new powers to the federal government to punish American citizens and regulate how they communicate with one another."

Due to the media circus over the past two weeks caused by President Trump's arrest and arraignment, the RESTRICT Act controversy has been an "under-the-radar" story. But the truth is that TikTok's collection of user data is a clear-and-present danger to America's safety and sovereignty. At the same time, the RESTRICT Act is a threat to your First Amendment right to free speech.
If you think Congress should take a different path to stop the social-media app from posing nation-security and privacy risks, take action by clicking here to add your name to the "Ban TikTok!" and "Reject The RESTRICT Act!" national petition now. Thanks, in advance, for making your voice heard tonight.

P.S. The petition states: "TikTok's ability to collect data from the user's device poses nation-security and privacy risks. That makes the popular social-media platform a threat to the United States' safety and sovereignty! But banning the video-sharing app via the RESTRICT Act would infringe on Americans' Freedom of Speech. So, I'm signing this national petition to demand Congress take action to ban TikTok, while also protecting the First Amendment rights of U.S. citizens."
