Significantly, he was Speaking only 1 Year before Crucial US Presidential Elections on 2020, and after having Won the Previous, 2016 Race, notoriously with the Help of Alternative Internet Medias, and Web Activists recently Harassed by Big Tech. Corporations, Internet Providers, and Establishment's Medias, often at the demand of National Governments and/or some International Organisations, particularly recently in Europe, (f.ex. EU Commission, since June 2016, sometimes even CoE, etc, when some Calls to Fight "Fake News" and/or "Hate Speech", risk to provoke Abuses against Dissidents and/or People's Human Rights at the Internet era).

+ Moreover, "Together, You Reach More People than any Broadcast Medias or Television Network", he observed, speaking of Web Journalism and Critical "Influence" at the Internet.

- "Free Speech is a Bedrock" of Democratic Life, paticularly "in America", where the "1st Amendment's" and other People's "Constitutional Rights, Must be Protected", as he stressed.

Many "Conservative" Voices in the USA have notoriously Complained to be Censored, Shadow-Blocked, and/or Otherwise Oppressed, Discriminated or Harassed by Big Internet Corporations, while, in Europe, even a French Government Majority's MP has reportedly been Excluded recently from her Parliamentary Group just for Observing the active presence of "LGBTI Lobbies" in the National Assembly !

=> -That's why, "Today, I'm Directing our Administration to Explore All Regulary and Legislative Solutions to Protect Free Speech, and the Rights of Free Speech of All" Citizens, President Don Trump announced.

+ He also spoke about a planned Meeting with "Big. Tech" Corporations and Executives from Major Social Media Patforms at the Web, soon at the White House, in order to Try to Convince them to become more Neutral and Respecting Web Journalists' legitimate Rights.

>>> "We Hope to see More Transparency, more Accountability, and More Freedom !", he concluded, Lively Applauded.

 Many Conservative a.o. Web Actors have often Complained to face Censorship and Biais by Big Tech. Platforms, as those Headquartered in California's currently "Liberal" Hub, but the latter denied, claiming that they Equally Respect all People's socio-Political Views. However, inter alia, there are, recently, even "Google"s Staff Members who have notoriously launched a Succesful Legal Fight at the Courts, Denouncing various Discriminations, Pressure, Bias, Threats, etc., because of their Opinions, inside that Tech. Giant. Critical News WebSites (as, f.ex., "InfoWars", etc) have been Excluded by Twitter, Facebook and other GAFA in several cases. Even President Trump's famous personal Twitter Account (often used by Many Medias, Diplomats, Politicians, a.o.) was recently Blocked by an unknown and un-controlled, Part-Time precarious Staffer : a Foreigner, Muslim from Turkey, just before he Leaves the US at the Expiration of his Visa, who Afterwards Claimed that he wasn't motivated by any Political Disagreement at all vis a vis Trump, and that the incident was a pure coincidence ! "Eurofora" has been repeatedly Targetted by a Series of various Cyber-Aggressions mainly between 2014-2018+. Additionally, in the run-up to Nowadays' White House's "Social Medias Summit", more than 55.000 Twitter Accounts went notoriously "Down", for several Hours, with the Bulk of such incidents being Concentrated in Parts of the US and Europe (mainly between London, Paris and Strasbourg), where one of "Eurofora"s active Members denounced that she faced such an abnormal Outtage even until the Next Morning, included, (See relevant Map).

------------------

Some People have called to Regulate Big Internet Platforms (such as Google, Facebook, Amazon, Twitter, etc), as a kind of "Essential Public Utilities".

But Many Others Disagree, considering that such a move risks to play right in the hands of Big Corporations' Interests, and Urge, on the Contrary, to launch a Critical Investigation on them, from the point of view of the Oligo-Monopolistic structure of such "Big. Tech" at the Web, in order to Start Breaking such Monopolies, and Bring in some much needed Oxygen by Healthy "Competition", (according to the Best-Rated and more Popular Comments, published by Web NewsMedias close to Don Trump's political movement, such as "Breitbart" a.o.).

 ---------------------------------------------

=> In Consequence, Given also the Fact that almost All "GAFA"'s and other Relevant Big Internet Platforms are all ...from the USA, naturally, the Question arises Why Europe does not yet Launch an Original and Independent such New Web Platform, SmartPhones' Operating System, etc....

The Concept of "European Digital Sovereignity", in such circumstances, may Help Both Economy, Innovation and Democracy !

Sarkozy and Merkel want deals with Obama on European Security at Strasbourg's NATO 2009 Summit

oscenato
------------------
In parallel but concording moves, EU Chair, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel both invited this week US-President elect, Barack Obama, to discuss important deals breaking new ground on European Security during the NATO's 60 Years Anniversary Summit of Heads of State in Strasbourg, where Obama is expected to make his 1st visit to Europe as a President on April 2009.

Merkel focused mainly on smoother NATO - EU Defence and Security policy cooperation, while Sarkozy spoke about PanEuropean Security, associating both Russia and the USA, proposing to freeze missile and shields' deployement until an agreement is reached.

But both tackled some hard nuts to crack : Turkey's VETO against the participation of EU Member Cyprus to EU-NATO cooperation, and Russia's anouncement on deployment of missiles up to Kaliningrad, at EU's belly, in reply to USA's wish to set up missile shields in EU States such as Poland or Czech Republic, etc.


---------------------
- "Certainly...one of the points that we'll dicuss with the New US President", Barak OBAMA, "who will come f'or the 1st time in Europe as president, at the NATO Summit", co-hosted by France and Germany in Strasbourg, ""concerns, above all, the European Security and Defence Policy" (ESDP), and "the relations between NATO and its partners", with whom it should "work together", anounced earlier this week Merkel.

We must find "a reasonable and adequate concept to articulate NATO and European Security and Defense policy", because of a "series of practical issues, sometimes difficult to understand", but that "we must discuss".

- "An example" of that is "the issue of Cyprus and Turkey", said Merkel, where Ankara raises problems "from Kosovo up to Afghanistan", as also CoE's chair, Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt recently observed in Strasbourg replying to EuroFora's questions.

- "We must do something to smoothen this problem for good, and not only on a case-by-case basis, laboriously negotiated each time". Here, we must find "a reasonable and adequate concept to articulate NATO and European Security and Defense policy", Merkel stressed.

- "With good will from all sides, it could and should be posible. Germany wants also to help on that". Otherwise, "the coming generations will not understand why it took Decades to do so". But, if we "don't even achieve that for Decades, this would be an Historic Failure !", the German Chancellor warned

- "I think that our American partners are increasingly realizing that", Merkel said, pleading for "a stronger European Security and Defence policy, with which, I believe, the Atlantic Security Partnership can also strengthen and solidify".

Meanwhile, USA is also due to take in 2009 a special status inside EU-led EUROCORPS, the European Army HeadQuarters, based in Strasbourg.

Merkel said that after meeting in Berlin with NATO's Secretary General, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, earlier this week, precisely in order to "prepare NATO's Summit", scheduled for the beginning of April 2009 in Strasbourg.

Scheffe, knows well Strasbourg, since he chaired the CoE, as Holland's Foreign Minister, when he brokered a controversial deal precisely on Turkey and Cyprus about the implementation of ECHR judgements on Greek Cypriot displaced persons' houses and properties in 2003. He returned later at least once, for a WEO meeting at the CoE, where he precisely had highlighted such EU - NATO issues.

EU Commission's 2008 Report on Turkey has just observed that, on European Defense - Security policy, "Turkey continues to object to EU-NATO Cooperation which would involve all EU Member States". "This created Problems for EU-NATO co-operation in the context of Civilian ESDP missions, in particular in Kosovo and Afghanistan".

 French EU Chair, President Sarkozy and Merkel are visiting Washington on Friday and Saturday for a Global G-20 Summit with current US President George Bush, on the sidelines of which are expected preparatory contacts with US President-elect Obama's entourage, even if himself might stay in Chicago until he takes over on January 21.

Before going to Washington, Sarkozy concluded today an UE - Russia Summit with Dmitry Medvedev, where they "spoke in length on PanEuropean Security" :

- As EU President, I proposed that we meet on mid-2009 in a framework such as OSCE's in order to set the foundations of a Future Pan-European Security, which would associate Russia and USA, and that, meanwhile, nobody speaks about deploying missiles or shields, which complicate the situation".

- NATO's Summit in Strasbourg-Kehl, on April 2009 is a perfect occasion to discuss with our American friends and to prepare a possible OSCE Summit for these issues f.ex. for June or July", Sarkozy concluded.

- We must all abstain from Unilateral measures" dangerous for Europe's security. "Russia only reacted to decisions taken by some other countries. But if they are ready to cooperate, we are ready to discuss. EU could be an intermediary", added Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, before going himself too at the Washington G-20 Economic Summit.

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
