Twitter Fact-Checking Trump Perhaps Leads to Conservative Free Speech


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

Posted May 28, 2020

 

FINALLY! Conservative Free Speech is about to be protected from Leftists twisting facts to fit their agenda to fundamentally transform America. Free Speech loving Conservatives ironically can thank Jack Dorsey’s Twitter for placing a twisted fact checking banner on a President Trump tweet about the corruption often linked to mail-in balloting touting only the Leftist line claiming mail-in ballot safety.

Trump Takes on Social-Media Censorship

The president will sign an executive order aimed at preventing leftist speech suppression.

 

Twitter Censors Free Speech

 

By Thomas Gallatin

May 28, 2020

The Patriot Post

 

On the heels of being “fact-checked” by Twitter’s clearly biased “right opinion” police, President Donald Trump announced on Wednesday that he would soon be issuing an executive order that would hold social-media companies to account for infringing on Americans’ right to free speech. “Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservative voices,” Trump said, warning, “We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen.”

 

Trump’s contention is made that much more relevant given the fact that Twitter has not “fact-checked” any of the demonstrably false COVID-19 propaganda posted from Chinese communist officials. This glaring inconsistency serves to expose the fundamental problem with these self-appointed arbiters of “truth” — they are playing off opinion-checking as fact-checking.

 

This reality has been demonstrated by the fact that Twitter’s “Head of Site Integrity,” Yoel Roth, who is responsible for “fact-checking” (which he got wrong, ironically) Trump’s tweet on the problem of fraud associated with mail-in ballots, is an avid anti-Trump and anti-Republican leftist based upon his own social-media history. Roth has called the Trump administration “ACTUAL NAZIS,” derided Trump supporters in “fly-over states” because they “voted for a racist tangerine,” and labeled Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a “personality-free bag of farts.” He donated to Hillary Clinton in 2016, tweeting that “I just gave $100 to Hillary for America. We can’t f___ around anymore.”

 

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey lashed out after Roth was unmasked as chief of Twitter’s opinion police, telling critics to “leave our employees out of this.” [Blog Editor: Boo Hoo] Dorsey then ridiculously asserted, “We’ll continue to point out incorrect or disputed information about elections globally. And we will admit to and own any mistakes we make.” Actually, Twitter has yet to correct its erroneous labeling of Trump’s tweet on mail-in voting as a false claim despite the existence of numerous reports showing that those ballots are indeed susceptible to massive fraud.

 

Dorsey then hit overdrive in his double-speak, claiming, “This does not make us an ‘arbiter of truth.’ Our intention is to connect the dots of conflicting statements and show the information in dispute so people can judge for themselves. More transparency from us is critical so folks can clearly see the why behind our actions.” How exactly haranguing critics for exposing Twitter’s “Head of Site Integrity” for leftist bias equates to “more transparency” Dorsey failed to explain.

 

In truth, Trump’s decision has been a long time in the making, as his administration has increasingly raised alarms over the growing censorship practices by social-media giants Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. The Wall Street Journal reports, “As drafted, the White House order would seek to reshape the way that federal regulators view Twitter and other social-media companies — not as hosts of speech but as monopolies that control millions of Americans’ daily experiences on their platforms. … It could also lay groundwork for treating them as public squares where individuals’ First Amendment rights are protected. The draft order is far-reaching in scope.”

 

Following Trump’s announced crackdown on social media, it comes as little surprise that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg quickly came out criticizing Twitter. “I just believe strongly that Facebook shouldn’t be arbiter of truth of everything that people say online,” Zuckerberg (rather hypocritically) insisted. “Private companies probably shouldn’t be, especially these platform companies, shouldn’t be in the position of doing that.” In other words, Thanks for screwing this up for us, Dorsey.

Twitter’s Trump ‘Fact Check’ Does Not Disclose Company Partnered with Groups Pushing Mail-In Ballots

Twitter for the first time put a fact-check label on tweets from President Trump, using the controversial tactic on messages in which the president complained there is “no way” that “mail-in ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent.”

 

It may be instructive that Twitter seized on the mail-in balloting tweets as the first issue from Trump’s rapid fire social media feed to slap with a fact-check label. Twitter did not disclose in its so-called fact-check it is partners with two groups financed by leftist donors that engage in voter participation efforts, including drives pushing mail-in balloting.

 

Twitter sits on the “Premier Partner” list of one of those groups alongside ViacomCBS, the merger of Viacom and CBS. Twitter’s so-called fact-check about Trump’s mail-in balloting cited CBS political reporter Grace Segers vouching for mail-in voting.

 

Analysts have posited such proposals help the Democratic Party. Republicans specifically fear the prospect of voter fraud, since mail-in voting would be harder to authenticate.

 

Yesterday, Trump tweeted the following, earning him the badge reading “Get the facts about mail-in ballots”:

 

Donald J. Trump

✔ @realDonaldTrump

 

There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent. Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed. The Governor of California is sending Ballots to millions of people, anyone…..

 

 

Donald J. Trump

✔ @realDonaldTrump

 

….living in the state, no matter who they are or how they got there, will get one. That will be followed up with professionals telling all of these people, many of whom have never even thought of voting before, how, and for whom, to vote. This will be a Rigged Election. No way!

Twitter did not disclose it is an active “Premier Partner” of Vote Early Day 2020, an election advocacy group seeking to educate voters that they can cast their ballots prior to Election Day, including via the vote-by-mail option.

 

The front page of the group’s website promotes mail-in balloting, telling voters that “more states are adopting additional Vote Early options, such as vote-by-mail, and we are expecting these changes to increase voter turnout. We want everyone to know their options.”

 

The organization suggests voters “throw a party or parade” so “friends can come together to fill-in their mail-in ballots.”

 

The website states:

 

Through parties at the polls and community parades to early voting sites, organizations across the country will inspire more Americans to vote early. Even in states without in-person early voting, friends can come together to fill-in their mail-in ballots.

 

The group’s mission statement includes mail-in options (emphasis added):

 

When Americans vote early, they ensure that last minute problems will not prevent them from casting their ballots – and help shorten voting lines on Election Day for everyone. But voting early rules – both for in-person and by-mail options – vary widely all over the country, causing confusion and preventing voters from casting their ballots. We’re here to make voting early easier. Given our current conditions with COVID-19, having multiple options to safely cast your ballot is critical.

 

Vote Early Day openly states it is supported by one organization: “Vote Early Day is a holiday for all Americans supported by a project at New Venture Fund.”

 

The New Venture Fund, or NVF, is in turn managed under an administrative agreement with the shadowy, massively funded Arabella Advisors strategy company that pushes the interests of wealthy leftist donors.

 

Arabella specializes in sponsoring countless dark money pop-up organizations advocating progressive policies and designed to look like grassroots activist groups, as exposed in a recent extensive report by conservative watchdog Capital Research Center.

 

Billionaire activist George Soros’s Open Society documents that it provided financing to the Sixteen Thirty Fund, one of four nonprofits run by Arabella Advisors, another being the NVF. Arabella nonprofits also evidence close financial workings with initiatives for the Democracy Alliance, another network of highly influential donors, including Soros.

 

Meanwhile, Twitter serves as a “Premier Partner” of Vote Early Day 2020 along with ViacomCBS and other media firms.

 

Twitter’s “fact-check” about Trump’s mail-in balloting cited Segers, the CBS political reporter, tweeting the following about mail-in voting:

 

Other listed media companies that are “Premier Partners” of Vote Early Day are BuzzFeed, MTV, Univision and USA Today.

 

More “Premier Partners” include leftist groups such as the League of Women Voters, the Democracy Fund, Alliance for Youth Organizing and Rise.

 

MTV recently partnered with Michelle Obama to host a virtual prom with the subtheme of increasing voter turnout. The television event is produced in partnership with When We All Vote, an organization for which Obama serves as a co-chair and that seeks to increase voter participation.

 

Organizers of the MTV event with Obama said in a statement the television Prom-athon would include a “special focus on commemorating another important milestone for young people this year: registering and voting in the national election in November.”

 

Becoming a “Premier Partner” for Vote Early Day, as Twitter did, requires activism on the part of each partner organization.

 

The group’s website states that to join as a “Premier Partner” an organization must (below are all direct quotes):

 

  • Agree to include their name or logo in public materials (e.g. press release and website);
  • Share their Vote Early Day activation plans with the Steering Committee in advance;
  • Report back successes and feedback;
  • Commit to a flagship on-the-ground activation, mobilize a national network of at least 50 partners, or reach 1 million people through digital or platform integrations

 

Vote Early Day is not Twitter’s only involvement in election advocacy. The social media giant along with Google and Facebook is also a 2020 partner for the National Voter Registration Day, which says it “wants to make sure everyone has the opportunity to vote.”

 

The National Voter Registration Day also pushes mail-in ballots, saying it seeks to educate citizens to “request mail-in ballots, learn about early voting options, and more.”

 

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, National Voter Registration Day says it’s working on “incorporating supplemental resources and messaging in our toolkits, posters, and trainings about how to vote by mail.”

 

The National Voter Registration is sponsored by the Democracy Fund, a charitable foundation created by eBay founder and liberal billionaire Pierre Omidyar.

 

Omidyar’s self-styled “philanthropic investment firm” the Omidyar Network, is also a funder of the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) at the Poynter Institute for Media Studies, which has partnered with Facebook to draft principals in an initiative to help determine whether a certain news story is “disputed.”

 

The Omidyar Network has partnered with the Open Society on projects and it has given grants to third parties using the Soros-funded Tides Foundation as a “fiscal sponsor.” Tides is one of the largest donors to left-wing causes in the U.S.

 

Twitter’s “fact-check” of Trump’s tweets on mail-in balloting, meanwhile, also cited the ACLU of Nebraska claiming “voting by mail is secure. It’s effective. It led to record turnout.”

 

The ACLU has been pumping materials urging Congress to pass coronavirus voting legislation that pushes mail-in voting. Soros’s Open Society Foundations donated $50 million to the ACLU.

 

Breitbart News extensively reported a slew of other progressive groups tied to Soros money have been working overtime to push mail-in voting.

Exclusive: Matt Gaetz Drafting Bill to Drop Big Tech’s Legal Immunity over One-Sided ‘Fact Checks’

Breitbart

 

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) will announce today that he is working with Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee to craft legislation that would strip social media giants of their Section 230 legal immunity if they fact check content on their platforms, according to a copy of his podcast which Breitbart News exclusively obtained.

 

On the Florida conservative’s podcast, Hot Takes with Matt Gaetz, he said that he is working on a bill that would prevent social media giants such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google from fact-checking content on their platforms. Gaetz’s announcement follows as Twitter decided to fact check President Donald Trump’s tweet on Tuesday.

 

Twitter tried to fact check the president over Trump’s tweet, claiming that mail-in ballot would lead to increased voter fraud.

 

After Twitter fact-checked Trump’s post, the president threatened to regulate or shut down social media companies such as Facebook and Twitter.

 

“Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices,” Trump wrote on Wednesday. “We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen.”

 

Gaetz noted that social media companies such as Twitter and Facebook enjoy a special liability protection under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. This immunity shields them from lawsuits if they were to remove and host content.

 

Gaetz said:

 

A lot of people don’t see that Facebook and Twitter … you see Twitter disadvantaging the president, they enjoy liability protections that are not enjoyed by your local newspaper or your local TV station, or Fox News, or CNN, or MSNBC. They have special benefits under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act as digital platforms because they’re not creating content for which they should be liable. They’re not making decisions about content, they’re simply saying come one, come all with your content. And as a consequence of that, they’re getting a bunch of protections.

 

The Communications Decency Act stipulates that a platform, such as Twitter, cannot be sued for what users post on their platform as long as they act as platforms and not publishers.

 

Noting that the social media companies have become increasingly biased against conservatives, Gaetz questioned whether social media companies deserve to keep their Section 230 immunity.

 

He asked rhetorically, “Well now, it really begs the question with what Twitter is doing. Do they deserve that? Do they deserve it? And I would suggest that they don’t.”

 

Gaetz added that it is not “good for the country” regardless of politics when these social media companies cease to stay neutral platforms.

 

Gaetz said that he is working with members of the Judiciary Committee to work on legislation to remove big tech’s Section 230 immunity if they continue to fact check on their platforms.

 

He said, “I am currently working with my Republican colleagues on the Judiciary Committee to craft legislation to say that if you’re going to opine as to the truth or falsity of that which is put on your platform, for the sake of its viewers, you don’t get the protection of Section 230. You are not a platform. You are doing something else, you are editorializing.”

 

Gaetz’s office told Breitbart News that the legislation would make big tech companies’ legal immunity contingent on not offering editorial judgments, such as fact-checking content.

 

“If Twitter is going to fact-check President Trump, that really begs the question of who those fact-checkers and if they are groups of people that shown bias against the president,” Gaetz said.

Never Thought I’d See The Day

I stay on Facebook simply because it has inserted itself into all sectors of public life, somewhat insidiously I might add, and as such, it wields far too much power as a political tool to simply be abandoned, due to its tyrannical and arbitrary censorship of everything conservative, pro-American, pro-Liberty and pro-Life. If not for this fact, I could care less if I’m on FB or not, until someone in government brings them in line to where they must follow the same guidelines as regular businesses and at least honor our civil rights and the Bill of Rights.

 

Whether I’m speaking to them or not, or anyone else on Facebook in any particular fashion should not be any of their concern, since everyone is provided a “Block” function; that they go the extra step to act as Big Brother on their private site is still a violation of our First Amendment Rights.

 

 

If I’m in a place of business and the owner doesn’t like something I say, they cannot censor me. But, like Facebook they can ask me to leave or refuse me service. That’s what Facebook essentially does. My assertion is they wouldn’t know what I was saying or writing if they weren’t illegally spying on me through the algorithms and monitors; and if they run across my public post by accident, they can simply ignore it. They should leave any interaction between all parties participating in FB, and if anyone decides to block me over something I’ve posted, that’s all fair and square.

 

The way it is now, the Leftists utilizing FB use the block app and Facebook backs them up like a supporting regiment in what amounts to the wholesale censorship of all conservatives on Facebook, by shadow banning posts and locking people out of their accounts, just as Twitter and other Leftist sites are doing. They are trying to take complete control of all search engines and the internet, and they have almost succeeded; right now, even WordPress is deleting conservative blogs and banning their posts, and Google is already hiding or outright deleting archived conservative material from the internet, which in essence is being scrubbed of conservative supporting historical fact; and, propaganda and out right falsehoods are inserted as replacements.

Report Social Media Free Speech Censorship White House Link]

 

 

Taking control of the internet is the greatest danger, and the fact it is taking place before our eyes represents the best reason for Congress to split Google, Facebook and Amazon into smaller organizations under the Sherman Anti-Trust Act, in order that competition gives the free flow of information a fighting chance. Otherwise, our internet will be controlled by big corporations pushing whatever agenda they wish upon the American public. And at some point, whatever they build may be seen as too important to remain in their hands and become the tool of a malicious government intent on using those propaganda programs to control us all.

 

However unfortunate, America cannot count on Congress to fix the problem at this moment in time, while Democrats control the House. They’re on the side of the censors. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., is railing that social media companies are not doing enough to “counter” what he calls “vitriolic hate messages,” aligning himself with the same tyranny we see all across Europe play out today through their hate speech illegitimate laws that allow for patriots opposed to Islam and Christians preaching the Gospel to be jailed for their stated beliefs and facts.

 

Instead, hopefully America will witness the courts step in and right this egregious development in our society. Last fall, a conservative nonprofit called Freedom Watch sued Facebook, Google, Twitter and Apple for suppressing “politically conservative content.” It’s plausible judges will rule that allowing social media platforms to censor political speech destroys the freedom of the public square.

 

And that’s just the tip of the ice-berg. Just wait until facial recognition and a complete cashless society become reality and they use social media information to determine who is or isn’t in good standing with the government. The very techniques FB is using now can be used by any tyranny minded government to keep someone out of work until they toe the party line. We see a similar program already unfolding in China through a social credit score that determines EVERYTHING for the individual …. even whether one gets into a university or not.

 

As a publicly traded stock, unless I missed the mark somehow, they are supposed to honor the Constitution and respect our civil and constitutional rights in the same manner all other companies with public holdings must adhere to the Bill of Rights and respect the public they serve.

 

I recently had a dear friend make me aware of the new ‘Tech Bias Story Sharing Tool’ that puts one on a White House type form, where a person can share their story of abuse and censorship at the hands of any or all the various tech giants. Anyone who has experience the OVERT and BLATANT and Often ARBITRARY CENSORSHIP utilized by Facebook, Twitter, Google and now even WordPress should use this tool to contact the White House and express Your own particular concerns.

 

Time will tell. The Senate and the House or the Courts either act or ‘We the People’ eventually will. To tell the truth, I’m actually surprised that nobody has attacked Facebook headquarters in Molina Park, California in some fashion, even if something as simple as paint bombs.

 

BIG BROTHER’S HERE. We need to make sure we kill him in the cradle so to speak, or we can kiss liberty in America Good-Bye. Too much of our liberty has already been destroyed through illegitimate legislation. We don’t need to allow anymore to be destroyed in THE PUBLIC SQUARE.

 

Well, I’ve rambled on too much already, but this is a touchy subject for me. I never thought I’d see the day where any American wasn’t allowed to freely speak his or her mind in this country, under any set of circumstances.

The surprising road ahead for WND


Online publications such as WND (formerly World Net Daily) face economic woes largely due to the Leftist monopoly of Online Media. In a recent WND e-newsletter David Kupelian writes about the effects of this media stranglehold. Among other Leftist entities that Conservatives are nearly forced to use due to a monopolistic Media, Kupelian uses Google and Facebook as prime examples.

At the end of the newsletter WND provides a link enabling you the reader to circumvent the demonetizing tendencies of monopolistic Media Left. As for this small potato blog, you can show your support HERE.

The surprising road ahead for WND
David Kupelian on defeating the left’s stealth takeover of the Internet

 

E-Newsletter sent May 6 at 10:08 AM

Sent via WND

 

Dear WND reader,
Today, Monday, May 6, 2019, is WND’s 22nd anniversary as America’s first online journalism company. Thank you for your readership, loyalty and support over all these years. We deeply appreciate it. WND was here before Facebook, before Google, before almost all the other Big Tech companies that have come to dominate – and unfortunately, control – today’s Internet. Following is my candid assessment of where we are, the challenges we face in a much more hostile environment, and the clear road ahead for WND.

The Democratic Party – whose presidential candidates proudly advocate allowing convicted mass-murdering terrorists to vote, destroying America’s oil, gas and coal industries, ending private insurance, killing babies after they’re born, inviting never-ending hordes of illegal aliens to invade our country, and imposing socialism on the most successful free-market nation in history – could win the presidency and Congress next year.

How is that possible?

How could such an obviously lunatic – and catastrophic – worldview prevail in the United States of America, you ask?

There are several reasons, but let’s start with a big one: Lies take hold in the absence of truth, and the left is now deeply engaged in a campaign to eliminate truthful free speech and a free press in our beloved country.

I’m talking about the ongoing censorship and predatory monopolistic suppression of genuinely truth-based journalism.

You no doubt are already somewhat familiar with this. Every day, it seems, Facebook or Twitter or YouTube has banned or suspended or demonetized yet another conservative, Republican or Christian.

But behind such headlines, something far deeper and more consequential is happening.

The left in America – with its increasingly blatant totalitarian tendencies – already dominates most of our nation’s major institutions, from our colleges and universities, to today’s Democratic Party, to Hollywood, to the “mainstream media.” Well, now the same “progressive” left has succeeded in taking over yet another gigantic institution: the Internet.

Although WND has published many stories over the last year and a half exposing Google, Facebook and the other tech giants’ campaign to extinguish free speech and independent journalism, we probably understated the problem.

As the original online journalism organization, going way back to 1997, WorldNetDaily – like other independent news enterprises – has been enduring a powerful, concerted, multi-pronged attack.

First, there’s the all-out assault on our operating revenues.

“Journalism, sustained by traditional advertising, is dying,” confirms the respected Washington, D.C.-based Electronic Privacy Information Center, or EPIC. In the research center’s recent written testimony to Congress’s Subcommittee on Digital Commerce and Consumer Protection, EPIC summarized its findings starkly: “Two companies [Google and Facebook] dominate the market. The privacy of internet users is under assault. The revenue model that sustained journalism is broken. The ad platforms are manipulated by foreign adversaries. Secrecy and complexity are increasing as accountability is diminished.”

To understand exactly how the “Digital Cartel” has managed to wreak so much havoc, read EPIC’s letter to Congress here.

Bear in mind that what enabled Google and Facebook to accomplish this – to essentially steal the life-sustaining advertising revenues from WND and other online news organizations – is their scandalous practice of invading your privacy and harvesting and monetizing your private, personal information. Totally unrepentant over this, Facebook is now going after your bank account.

But vanishing revenues are just part of the problem.

While Google and Facebook vacuum up four-fifths of all digital advertising, thereby depriving news sites like ours of their traditional lifeblood, these same mega-companies are simultaneously censoring, suppressing and “shadow-banning” independent, right-of-center news and opinion sources. It is now utterly indisputable that the Internet gatekeepers’ leftwing bias is fully baked into their algorithms, which is why – in an era when the Trump economy is expanding, with manufacturing finally returning to the U.S. and employment at record highs – for the past two years, it is almost exclusively stories claiming Trump is a traitorous Russian double-agent that have populated the Google or Facebook news feeds where tens of millions congregate to get their “news.”

Worse, you’ve no doubt heard that many of these Internet mega-companies now rely on the same corrupt hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center, as their go-to expert on whom to discriminate against as purveyors of “hate speech.” (This, even though the SPLC’s top leaders have recently been ousted amid revelations of internal racial and sexual harassment!) The SPLC is best known for its “hate group” lists where it delights in lumping together genuinely honorable Christian/conservative organizations – like the American Family Association, Liberty Counsel, Alliance Defending Freedom, the Family Research Council and yours truly, WND – with actual hate groups like the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, Aryan Nations and the Westboro Baptist Church.

WorldNetDaily has long been featured on the SPLC’s ridiculous “hate/extremist” label. And since the Southern Poverty Law Center now determines what is “hate speech” or “fake news” for Google, Facebook and others, is it any wonder that these days, WND rarely shows up on a Google search unless you specify “WND” in your search, or else enter the exact WND headline?

There is much more going on, but hopefully it is now absolutely clear to you that, in a multitude of ways, the leftwing appropriation of the Internet is intent on accomplishing what it already has in America’s universities, popular culture, Democratic Party and establishment press. That is, to take it over, impose politically correct speech (and therefore thought) codes, and suppress dissident voices – in this case, making it extremely difficult for journalists animated by American, constitutional, biblical, commonsense values to do their job of digging out the truth and reporting it to you.

So, what does the future hold for WND and other independent media?

It’s no secret that WND has been severely impacted by this ongoing assault and is having to reinvent itself in many ways, from painful cost reductions including layoffs and pay-cuts, to optimizing remaining revenue sources, to inventing new and outside-the-box strategies in every part of our company.

Is there hope? Well, consider this.

Revered economist and technology futurist George Gilder, in his new book Life After Google: The Fall of Big Data and the Rise of the Blockchain Economy,” predicts Google will one day come to an end. Why? Because, says Gilder, at root Google’s “philosophy attempts to lay an axe to the root of human creativity, free will and man’s uniqueness as created in God’s image.”

Let me explain. Gilder, whose track record of anticipating future technology trends is impeccable, predicts that today’s extreme centralization of data, power and wealth will one day give way to a new age of decentralization, restored privacy and individual empowerment. That would mean Google-Facebook’s predatory monopolistic destruction of competitors, wanton invasion of privacy and ideological censorship also come to an end.

However, there’s a catch. Key to that better future, says Gilder, is understanding that the whole idea of “free” is an illusion. As we all have recently learned, when we access Facebook and Google for “free,” it’s only because it turns out we are the product being sold! In place of “free” services that exploit, monetize and censor us, says Gilder, new developments like blockchain technology, cryptocurrency and micropayments will one day play a crucial role in keeping the public square of information open, decentralized, healthy and thriving.

If all this still sounds a bit esoteric, let’s boil it down to its essence: Only one thing is immune to Google/Facebook’s censoring, stifling, starving and shadow-banning independent, pro-American news and analysis like WND. Only one thing can counteract Amazon sucking up all the ecommerce and crippling everyone else.

That one thing that trumps all the predatory business practices, censorship and utopian fantasies of the current Internet gatekeepers is the creativity and goodness of real people acting under the inspiration of Almighty God. Arrogant, wealthy mega-companies cannot interfere with genuine virtue and generosity working through human beings committed to helping each other.

We at WND would love nothing more than to be able to continue working our hearts out doing what we’ve been doing for you for the past 22 years. If you agree, help us. It’s just as simple as that.

The Digital Cartel – and for that matter, the rest of the dark forces of this world – cannot destroy an honorable relationship between you and us. We give to you, and you give back to us. There is no “free.” “It is always a lie,” says Gilder, “because on this earth nothing, in the end, is free.”

Timing is everything. Gilder’s hopeful predictions – that the tech giants will succumb to the self-destruct code they have unknowingly created, and that one day what he calls the “cryptocosm” will usher in a new era of unfettered Internet freedom where ideological censorship is no more, privacy is restored, and sovereign individuals happily pay a tiny amount for the content they like – may take years to come about.

Social Media Active War Against Conservatives


John R. Houk

© February 28, 2019

If you are a Conservative-oriented person active in posting and reading on various Social Media platforms, you are probably quite aware the current Social Media giants do more than lean Left. Those giants also have an agenda to promote all things and ideology Left. You probably have also realized part and parcel of that agenda is to PREVENT YOU — a Conservative — from being successful on their Social Media platforms. INDEED, this means censorship and/or banning.

 

On a personal level I have experienced Social Media Jail on Facebook and Google+. (Neither you nor I will need to worry about Google+ censorship/jail by early April because Google is shutting down the non-commercial usage of G+.)

 

I operate three blogs. More lately my flagship blog SlantRight 2.0 seems to be on the Facebook radar. Quite suspiciously Facebook has flagged SlantRight 2.0 shared posts as being against the platform’s community standards. This is interesting since I don’t engage in vulgarity, profanity and incitement to violence.

 

My subject matter promotes Conservative thought, is pro-Christian, Pro-Israel, Pro-Christian Zionist and to a Multiculturalist’s chagrin – I do not shy away from exposing the dark side of Islam both from that theopolitical faith’s own revered writings and current events. In full disclosure I am supportive of Biblical Morality which among other things places me in the present day politically incorrect side of criticizing all things same-sex. This kind of criticism has earned a special epithet from the Left known as homophobia. I am labelled a homophobe even though I condemn violence in any form against those practicing the various forms of homosexually. God Almighty will judge LGBTQ practitioner choices and not any human being and certainly not I. For that matter, there are probably many actions a Conservative should ask forgiveness to escape an end of the age Final Judgment including myself. (One of the awesome aspects of God’s Grace in Christ Jesus is Mercy for all humanity have fallen short due to sin. Mini path to personal Redemption:

 

God’s Righteousness Through Faith

21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, 22 even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all [a]and on all who believe. For there is no difference; 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified [b]freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God set forth as a [c]propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, 26 to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. [Romans 3: 21-26 NKJV])

 

Thank God there are Social Media platforms beginning to emerge as a result of the big-dog platforms skewing Left. And yet I’m not exactly an Internet guru and I have found my learning curve for using emerging platforms not always equal to usability. Hence as yet, I have a sense dissatisfaction of the more emerging Conservative-friendly platforms which may be more my problem with adapting to different formats. As the big-dog Social Media becomes more and more hostile toward Conservatives, I suspect I’ll have to make a greater effort to adapt.

 

I won’t mention the new Social Media I had an utter failure in using, but there are three that adaptability seems easier. GAB is a bit of an alternative to Twitter. You can post with 300 characters at GAB. But GAB has had server issues recently when a mass murderer was discovered to have used GAB, the server company used by GAB gave them the boot. GAB is up and running again with a new server.

 

MeWe seems to be taking off currently. MeWe is kind of a combo G+ and Facebook. So far though I have not figured out how to link to individual posts in a MeWe Group. Again, the problem might be my skill set more than a MeWe issue. Here is my MeWe Profile Page.

 

A Social Media platform I find extremely promising is USA Life. USA Life is modeled so much like Facebook, it may be the future Conservative alternative. Go to my USA Life Profile Page and become my friend.

 

I’ve noticed when I complain of Facebook censorship on the newer platforms, I’m beginning to get responses asking me why don’t I just abandon Facebook? One reason is I’m an old dog that doesn’t like to learn new tricks. Until censorship became a problem at Facebook, it seemed the most effective way to share my blog posts. I am thinking USA Life might actually become competitive to Facebook’s future. Until then I’ll keep protesting Facebook censorship as long as the Facebook despots allow me to share. I suspect a day will come when Facebook despots will ban me for good.

 

Along the lines of censorship and banning, I was conversing with a Counterjihad author (due to the potential of censorship I hesitate to share the name). We spoke of our mutual censorship experiences on Facebook. He provided some insight on Conservative usage on Facebook.

He senses that above Facebook algorithms digitally hunting down Conservatives, he believes there are people among your friend lists who lean Left or are downright Liberal trolls who make it their objective to report your Conservative content as offensive. Whether or not it is actually offensive matters little. There is no recourse to rebut a false report with Facebook.

 

The suggestion is to go through your friend list and delete suspicion looking friends. Check out their views from their posts. If you determine a friend leans Left, that person can be suspected of reporting your Conservative content. Delete them.

 

Below are some posts exposing Social Media Platforms with a Left-Wing anti-Conservative agenda and their methods.

VIDEO: YouTube’s Community Guidelines System Is Garbage

 

Posted by Acts17Apologetics

Published on Feb 26, 2019

 

Earlier today, Tommy Robinson was banned from Facebook and Instagram. YouTube won’t be far behind. YouTube is removing more and more content based on false flags. Videos that contain absolutely no hate speech are being removed as hate speech, and creators that haven’t violated any rules or guidelines are receiving strikes and having their privileges (e.g. livestreaming) revoked. YouTube’s Community Guidelines strike system is pure garbage. YouTube is also punishing content creators for comments left on their videos. Perhaps the YouTube Creator Academy can address these problems.

FACEBOOK INSIDER GOES PUBLIC: ‘SUPPRESSION’ FOR CONSERVATIVES

Admits ‘special features’ used to ‘deboost’ traffic during elections

A Facebook insider has confirmed the social-media giant discriminates against conservatives through software manipulation, using “special features” to “deboost” their traffic, especially near elections.

 

The former employee of the Big Tech firm now works with James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, which released a video of her testimony.

 

Youtube Version of Project Veritas VIDEO: Facebook Insider Leaks Docs; Explains “Deboosting” “Troll Report” & Political Targeting in Interview

See the documents: https://www.projectveritas.com/2019/02/27/facebook-insider-leaks-docs/

 

Project Veritas has obtained and published documents and presentation materials from a former Facebook insider. This information describes how Facebook engineers plan and go about policing political speech. Screenshots from a Facebook workstation show the specific technical actions taken against political figures, as well as “[e]xisting strategies” taken to combat political speech.

She was a content review analyst for the intellectual property department, dealing with copyright and trademark claims.

 

As part of her work, she noticed some odd things on various accounts.

 

For example, one of the company’s engineers, Danny Ben David, had created an item called “actiondeboostlivedistribution” and was attaching it to accounts belonging to conservatives.

 

The insider said the obvious intent was to prevent distribution of that particular page or video.

 

It was one of the “methods of suppression,” she said.

 

It was done by disabling routine features on the page such as notifications.

 

“I would see it on several different conservatives pages,” she said, noting pages for Mike Cernovich, Steven Crowder and the Daily Caller.

 

She also pointed out Facebook was doing the throttling and even taking down material without letting the user know.

 

The insider noted company CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s claim to Congress, “We want to make sure we have the widest possible expression.”

 

He said he didn’t want his company acting on the political ideology of content.

 

But the former Facebook employee said that’s exactly what is not happening.

 

Project Veritas tried to obtain comment from David, who refused.

 

Another Facebook employee behind the campaign was Seiji Yamamoto, who wrote internally about his “news feed reduction strategy.”

 

He was concerned about “hate speech” but said there’s “quite a bit of content near the perimeter of hate speech that we need to address as well.”

 

Yamamoto described it as speech that “offends.”

 

Facebook, the report explained, also targets right-leaning individuals and organizations by labeling terms they use as offensive. One example was “MSM,” for mainstream media.

 

Yamamoto also refused to comment to Project Veritas.

 

The strategy includes “drastically limited bandwidth,” auto logouts for users and posts that “fail to upload.”

 

“They believe the election of Donald Trump was a fluke, it shouldn’t have happened,” the insider said, so Facebook is now trying to “influence elections.”

 

The company internally even discussed ratting out people it considers offensive by notifying everyone in their friends network.

 

“Fear of being outed … is what regulates behavior in real life and we should reintroduce that to the online world,” the company’s internal discussion noted.

 

Project Veritas posted online documents supporting the insider.

 

Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe said that to expose dishonesty and censorship in big tech companies, he will be relying upon more insiders, informants and leakers in the future.

 

“Our future depends on those who are willing to give up everything for what they believe.”

 

“When approached for comment, author and filmmaker Mike Cernovich said the troubling issue is that Facebook could just ‘make stuff up’ about people through these systems. ‘Facebook, or an individual at Facebook, has the unilateral power to create false allegations against someone he or she doesn’t like. The person accused not only can’t do anything about the allegation, they don’t even have an idea the allegation was made,’ said Cernovich,” Project Veritas said.

Facebook bans Tommy Robinson, falsely claiming he calls for violence against Muslims

 

By ROBERT SPENCER

FEB 26, 2019 4:00 PM

Jihad Watch

 

A Muslim activist in the UK is claiming credit for this:

 

However, Tommy Robinson says: “…the reasons they’ve given are just complete lies. They’re saying I incited violence and that I openly called for violence against Muslims, that’s just a lie. If that was the case then they could show evidence of messages where I’d said that but I never have.”

 

Whatever you may think of Tommy Robinson, fascists such as Mohammed Shafiq are not going to stop with him. It will soon be impossible to voice any opposition to jihad mass murder or Sharia oppression of women, gays, and others on any social media platform. Then the jihad will be able to advance unopposed and unimpeded, which is the ultimate goal of all these efforts to silence critics of jihad terror.

 

Tommy Robinson Intimidated by Police

 

“Tommy Robinson Banned from Facebook, Instagram,” by Oliver JJ Lane, Breitbart, February 26, 2019:

 

Facebook has banned British citizen journalist and street organiser Tommy Robinson from its platforms, including Instagram, in a move that comes days after he released a new documentary exposing what he claimed to be dishonest practise at establishment media giant BBC.

 

The social media giant claimed in a statement published Tuesday that Tommy Robinson’s own Facebook page, which had around one million ‘likes’ before deletion, “has repeatedly broken [Facebook community] standards, posting material that uses dehumanizing language and calls for violence targeted at Muslims. He has also behaved in ways that violate our policies around organized hate.”

 

Facebook claimed the move “is not a decision we take lightly.”

 

Responding to the ban, English Defence League founder turned citizen journalist Tommy Robinson told Breitbart London: “…the reasons they’ve given are just complete lies. They’re saying I incited violence and that I openly called for violence against Muslims, that’s just a lie. If that was the case then they could show evidence of messages where I’d said that but I never have.

 

“This is continued censorship which we all knew was coming but its been done instantly because of my documentary which exposed the establishment working with Hope not Hate, working with the BBC in order to destroy my name to the nation. When I exposed what they were doing they’ve put down the pressure to completely delete me from the internet. This has to show people the levels they’re gonna go to silence any opposition to mass migration and the Islamisation of this nation.”

 

Robinson’s removal from the platform is only the latest in a series of bans targeting the campaigner in recent years. He was de-platformed by Twitter in May 2018, banned from receiving payments by Paypal in November of that year, and had Youtube videos blocked from earning revenue in January 2019.

 

Mr Robinson told Breitbart London that he would be working on his own mobile app for live streaming after his removal from several social media sites.

 

It is not clear what actions were taken by Mr Robinson’s social media page in the recent past to cause Facebook’s decision to remove him now, but the move does come just days after he released an exposé documentary claiming to reveal underhanded dealings at British state broadcaster the BBC. In the hour-long film, which Robinson uploaded to his Facebook page, it is alleged the BBC collaborated with far-left activist organisation HOPE Not Hate to create what was apparently called a “Tommy Takedown”.

 

Robinson’s film debuted at a protest he held in Manchester, England, outside the offices of the BBC where the Panorama documentary series is produced. Thousands are reported to have attended the heavily-policed event.

 

In the film, top BBC documentary maker John Sweeney can be seen being confronted by Robinson with undercover footage of him making apparently racist and classist statements. It is believed at least some of the claims and counterclaims between Mr Robinson, the BBC, and HOPE Not Hate may yet be contested in court.

 

Responding to the ban, Tommy Robinson ally and UKIP leader Gerard Batten said the rise of censorship showed the nation was headed towards a “dark place.” He said: “Without any explanation whatsoever, the personal Facebook accounts of key UKIP members and Tommy Robinson have been removed….

SMOKING GUN MEMO LAID OUT LEFT’S ASSAULT ON CONSERVATIVES


On 8/29/18 I cross posted Joseph Farah’s email alert “The shocking Soros ‘speech code cartel’ memo”. Farah exposed a Leftist agenda under the support of George Soros a memo authored by David Brock with a game plan to undermine President Trump squelch Conservative voices online: “Full David Brock Confidential Memo On Fighting Trump”.

 

Matthew Vadum does more than talk about it. Vadum adds some detail on FrontPageMag.com.

SMOKING GUN MEMO LAID OUT LEFT’S ASSAULT ON CONSERVATIVES

While President Trump was being inaugurated, the Soros-funded Left was busy agitating.

 

By Matthew Vadum

August 30, 2018

FrontPage Magazine

 

George Soros

 

[To learn more about the Freedom Center’s recent victory over the Left’s censorship attempt, and its call for a coalition across party and ideological lines to defend free speech, click here.]

 

A strategy memo compiled by George Soros-funded activist groups as President Trump was being inaugurated last year foretold and seemed to lay the groundwork for many of the political difficulties Trump now faces and the politics-related strife now roiling the nation.

 

The memo takes on a heightened importance as the politically-driven censorship of conservatives by the gigantic, unregulated social media corporations controlled by the Left is moving into high gear while the crucial midterm congressional elections of Nov. 6 approach.

 

The intensely anti-conservative animus in the memo may have inspired MasterCard and WorldPay’s attempt on Aug. 21 to strangle the fundraising efforts of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, publisher of FrontPage, by refusing to complete its financial transactions. On that day MasterCard informed the Freedom Center that it would no longer process its transactions because it had been labeled a “hate group” by the radical leftist groups known as the Southern Poverty Law Center and ColorOfChange.org. The Freedom Center stood falsely accused of being “hateful in nature” and “advocating for violence.”

 

Only a massive outcry by conservative groups and prominent conservatives like Rush Limbaugh forced MasterCard to back down days later and restore the Freedom Center’s online fundraising facilities. But other conservative websites haven’t been so lucky. Many have been shut down or seen their traffic slashed as leftists have manipulated algorithms and limited the reach of conservative content.

 

The David Horowitz Freedom Center has since called for a coalition to be created across partisan and ideological lines to defend free speech.

 

The memo itself, “Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action,” marked an escalation in tactics by the Left. It was first made public last year by Joe Schoffstall of the Washington Free Beacon around the time Donald Trump took the oath of office to become the nation’s 45th president. This smoking-gun planning document aimed at suppressing conservative voices on social media was ignored by the mainstream media at the time and in the more than a year-and-a-half since.

 

The document spelled out the Left’s plans for impeaching President Trump, filing lawsuits against the fledgling administration, and using social media to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and hurt Republicans. “Right now, our institutions are among the critical few that stand between the America we love and the abyss,” the memo stated. “We must protect and defend our democratic values. We will not back down. We will only move forward.”

 

WND founder Joseph Farah referred last week to the 49-page memo as a blueprint “revealing how George Soros operatives, including David Brock, were there at the genesis, the planning stages, with their hands on the ignition key, of the most concerted, well-funded, diabolical attack on free speech in the history of America.”

 

The document “was nothing short of a plan to turn Google, Facebook and other social media into hyper-partisan Democratic Party activists, promoters, cheerleaders, and off-the-books donors in an effort to turn the country into a one-party state.”

 

The memo outlined left-wing activist David Brock’s four-year plan to undermine the Trump administration and Republicans using Media Matters for America (MMfA), American Bridge 21st Century, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), and left-wing propaganda website Shareblue. All four organizations were either founded by Brock or are now controlled by him. Since 2008, leftist billionaire George Soros has given more than $1.5 million to MMfA and more than $1.1 million to CREW through his philanthropies.

 

Brock, who reportedly raised $65 million during the 2016 election cycle, began working on his plan more or less immediately after Republican Donald Trump unexpectedly trounced Democrat Hillary Clinton in the presidential election in November 2016.

 

Brock and his comrades met in Palm Beach, Fla., as Trump assumed the presidency and Trump-hating Antifa rioted in the streets of the nation’s capital. “What better way to spend inaugural weekend than talking about how to kick Donald Trump’s ass?” Brock said in an email to left-wing mega-donors including Soros and Tom Steyer.

 

Whether Brock can take responsibility for all the leftist-inspired turmoil in the country is debatable, but many of the goals identified in the memo have already come to pass.

 

According to the memo, MMfA “will continue its core mission of disarming right-wing information.” This is what “success will look like,” the document states:

 

Serial misinformers and right-wing propagandists inhabiting everything from social media to the highest levels of government will be exposed, discredited.

Internet and social media platforms, like Google and Facebook, will no longer uncritically and without consequence host and enrich fake news sites and propagandists.

 

Toxic alt-right social media-fueled harassment campaigns that silence dissent and poison our national discourse will be punished and halted.

 

CREW will become “the leading nonpartisan ethics watchdog group in a period of crisis with a president and administration that present possible conflicts of interest and ethical problems on an unprecedented scale,” the memo states.

 

CREW “will demand ethical conduct from the administration and all parts of government, expose improper influence from powerful interests, and ensure accountability when the administration and others shirk ethical standards, rules, and laws.”

 

Success will take this form, according to the document:

 

Trump will be afflicted by a steady flow of damaging information, new revelations, and an inability to avoid conflicts issues.

 

The Trump administration will be forced to defend illegal conduct in court.

 

Powerful industries and interest groups will see their influence wane.

 

Dark money will be a political liability in key states.

 

The Shareblue website “will take back social media for Democrats,” the memo states. The group will “delegitimize Donald Trump’s presidency by emboldening the opposition and empowering the majority of Americans who oppose him.”

 

Success will be achieved when the following happens:

 

Shareblue will become the de facto news outlet for opposition leaders and the grassroots.

 

Trump allies will be forced to step down or change course due to news pushed by Shareblue.

 

Under pressure from Shareblue, Democrats will take more aggressive positions against Trump.

 

Shareblue will achieve financial sustainability while diversifying content offerings and platforms.

 

Top editorial and writing talent will leave competitors to join Shareblue.

 

Meanwhile, President Trump told reporters in the Oval Office on Tuesday that social media giants Google, Twitter, and Facebook “better be careful” because they “are treading on very, very troubled territory” by favoring left-wing viewpoints.

 

Earlier that day he tweeted, “This is a very serious situation—will be addressed!”

 

“Google search results for ‘Trump News’ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media. In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD,” he wrote. “Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal.”

 

Google CEO Sundar Pichai has indicated he will not testify at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing Sept. 5. on social media and Russian meddling in American elections. Unlike Pichai, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg are expected to testify.

 

Whether Dorsey and Sandberg will tell the truth is an open question.

Conservatives & Counterjihadists UNITE to Battle Leftist Censors

John R. Houk

© August 21, 2018

 

Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones is facing a ban from all quadrants of Social Media, Prager U is being censored by Facebook and Youtube, and more. These appear to be the main culprits that hate Conservative ideology so much that they direct wholesale bans, shadow bans and temporary jail which is essentially a suspension of service for a period of time:

 

  • Facebook

 

  • Google

 

  • Twitter

 

  • Youtube (Google owned)

 

I myself have experienced the jail-privilege from Facebook and Google (specifically from G+) several times. As of this writing, G+ is preventing even a “request” to “join” any G+ Community. As a test I even withdrew from a couple of low-traffic Communities, then I tried to put in a couple of “ask to join” requests. Each time a little banner-box pops up telling me there was an error and try again later.

 

I’ve been trying later for weeks now and the error message still pops up.

 

Here is a list of Conservatives censored one way or the other from 3/4/18 Gateway Pundit:

 

Young Cons: Extremely popular conservative news site and received millions of daily readers during the election.  The website received nearly all of its traffic from Facebook. Since 2016 Facebook shut down stories to Young Cons.  Each algorithm change meant less traffic for the popular website.  YoungCons was blacklisted by Facebook and struggles to maintain readers.  The site regularly switches domains to save traffic.

 

SarahPalin.com: With over 4 million fans one of the popular conservative pages on Facebook until Facebook blocked all traffic to the website.  The page was forced to change the domain to save traffic numbers.

 

Right Wing News:  Right Wing News grew to an enormous website in the past few years thanks its popularity on Facebook. In July of 2015, in just a week, the Right Wing News Facebook page reached 133 million people. Because conservatives were sharing content they were interested in, Right Wing News (with 3.6 million Facebook likes) was driving the same amount of web traffic as some of the biggest newspapers in America.  Since the 2016 election Facebook blocked traffic to the website.  Owner John Hawkins announced he was shutting down the website in January.

 

Western Journalism: Newsweek reported that the site has grown from receiving 1,000 page views a day in 2009[3] to more than 1 million during 2016. The website was averaging around 6 million page views a day according to Quantcast during the election. Today it is down to around 500,000 a day. Western Journalism was blacklisted by Facebook.

 

The Gateway Pundit: TGP was ranked as the 4th most influential conservative news source during the 2016 election. The site in 2016 received nearly a third of its traffic from Facebook. This past weekend Facebook blocked all traffic from recent stories to the website. TGP advertised with Facebook and is another top conservative website blacklisted by the company. TGP is also shadow-banned by Google and frequently attacked and smeared by the liberal media.

 

President Trump Facebook page:  A recent algorithm change has caused President Donald Trump’s engagement on Facebook posts to plummet a whopping 45%. In contrast, Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) do not appear to have suffered a comparable decline in Facebook engagement, reported Breitbart’s Alum Bokhari.

 

Independent Journal Review:  A massive conservative website based on Facebook audience.  The Independent Journal Review (IJR) terminated a number of its employees on Thursday, leaving an unclear future for the millennial-focused conservative website that has recently faced a declining audience.  IDF was also shadow-banned and blacklisted.

 

Breitbart.com:  Breitbart was the most influential conservative news source in 2016 with a massive audience.  Since the election Breitbart is constantly targeted and smeared by far left operations.  Breitbart advertising was targeted by Sleeping Giants and other Soros sites.

 

InfoWars:  Infowars is another dominant conservative site with enormous traffic.  After several years of video production and tens of thousands of video YouTube gave Infowars its third strike this week and threatens to shut the YouTube Channel down.

 

Rightside Broadcasting: This YouTube Channel had millions of views before the election.  Since 2016 YouTube has shadow-banned all of their videos.  YouTube has classified its videos of President Trump at a rally as hate speech.  YouTube has demonetized hundreds of its videos.  YouTube hides its videos.  Income for the site is down 95% since the election.

 

Natural News: A very prominent health website and the world’s top source on natural health. The site receives tens of thousands of readers every day. YouTube wiped out over 1,700 videos covering everything from nutrition, natural medicine, history, science and current events.

 

From a reader: You Tube deleted Natural News Channel. It’s conservative and full of info on health, too. I took a screen shot. I’m very upset. My husband has aggressive cancer from. Agent Orange and I depended on this channel for his diet among other things. The man, Mike Adams, is literally a genius, and I mean literally, and he is very conservative.

 

Prager Report:  PragerU, a conservative educational site, is suing Google and its subsidiary YouTube, accusing the video site of censoring its online videos because of their political leanings.  YouTube has banned several of its videos including segments on abortion and Islam.   Prager U has a massive conservative audience in the millions.

 

Pamela Geller.com Pamela is well-known for speaking out against radical Islam.  ISIS has threatened to behead her several times.  During the election PG had over 100,000 daily views from Facebook.  Today Facebook has shut down most of her traffic.  Her website suffered serious losses in revenue since the election.

 

Diamond and Silk: Pro-Trump YouTube sensations have a suit against YouTube. The Trump supporters announced in August 2017 that 95% of their videos have been demonetized on YouTube.

 

This list is derived from March 2018. Indeed, I just receive an email Alert from ACT for America that Youtube has pulled videos. The ACT email states according to Youtube rules, this video removal counts as a strike. The email doesn’t specify how many strikes have been placed on ACT for America, but the rules state three-strikes and the Youtube Channel is removed.

 

The most recent video related to reporting on the Islamic cult compound being busted for child abuse and training kids to be school shooters among other things. Youtube called the video report HATE SPEECH.

 

ACT for America began a petition to protest the Youtube action. Other than validation for ACT choices, I am unsure how much effect such a petition will have.

 

What needs to happen is to have Conservative and Counterjihad writers and organizations ban [maybe “ban” is the wrong word for this instance – maybe “group] together, perhaps with some kind of joint-petition with the goal of influencing legislation.

 

Below is the ACT email Alert about unjust Youtube censorship.

Big tech companies are using their power and influence to censor the conservative voice. ACT for America has experienced this first hand over the last few weeks.

 

First, YouTube removed an ACT for America video that dated all the way back to 2012 – in the process of removing the video, YouTube applied a “strike” to our account. If an account receives three strikes in a 90-day period, the account is expelled from YouTube. This is problematic because YouTube is the ONLY major platform to share videos from and if ACT for America were to lose our YouTube channel – we would be at a serious disadvantage to other organizations.

 

Youtube Attention Warning

 

Most recently, I called Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, the terrorist who was just charged for training young children in New Mexico to shoot up schools, “sick and depraved.” Calling a terrorist who takes pleasure in training young children to kill people “sick and depraved” should not be controversial. However, Facebook did not agree. Within just a few hours of posting about the accused terrorist, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, my account was suspended for 24 hours for violating Facebook’s policy regarding “hate speech.” Yes, that’s right – I was suspended from Facebook for calling a terrorist “sick and depraved.”

 

Fortunately, Twitter did not find my post to violate their hate speech policies – you can take a look at my post below:

 

Screenshot Brigitte Gabriel report on depraved Muslim Terrorist

 

That’s the reality we live in right now with big tech companies. Kathy Griffin can pose with a decapitated head of our President and receive no punishment, but if I call a terrorist sick and depraved I get suspended for hate speech. These Orwellian “hate speech” policies are being implemented with the explicit purpose to silence conservative voices.

Dems Want Social Platform Censorship by Blaming Russians – AGAIN


John R. Houk

Yesterday I stumbled upon a Fox News story in which Dems Senator Feinstein and Rep. Schiff have publicly called for Twitter, Facebook and now I read – Google, to investigate Russian bots spreading the meme #ReleaseTheMemo. My least favorite Fox host Shepherd Smith seemed to move story to agree with the Dems. Here’s the 4:30 minute segment on Youtube:

 

VIDEO: Top Democrats claim Russian bots are pushing #ReleaseTheMemo

 

Posted by Fox News

Published on Jan 24, 2018

 

Rep. Schiff and Sen. Feinstein say the classified memo prepared by staffers working for Devin Nunes is misleading and is being pushed online as part of a smear campaign against law enforcement officials investigating Team Trump; insight from Axios reporter Alayna Treene.

 

FOX News Channel (FNC) is a 24-hour all-encompassing news service dedicated to delivering breaking news as well as READ THE REST

 

In essence my first reaction the Dems were trying to get off the hook about corruption among Obama/Hillary cadres in the FBI and DOJ. Indeed, after Googling “Russian Bots,” I found MSM after MSM site pushing the Dem meme of Russian Bots. Just like loyal Leftist Pravda spreading Communist propaganda, the MSM pushed the Dem assertion Russia was involved in the American legal system to taint the FBI and the Mueller investigation purportedly investigating the Trump Campaign for President colluded with Russia to win said Campaign.

 

I felt the Dems were pulling the Russia-Russia-Russia load of crap to deflect from the real collusion story of Dems and Dem-favoring FBI and DOJ trying to discredit President Trump for an idiotic excuse to impeach him on FALSE evidence.

 

It turns out I am CORRECT! The Daily Caller picked up on a story from the Left-leaning Daily Beast which substantiates that an overwhelming majority of the viral message of “#ReleaseTheMail” was driven by red-blooded Americans rather than Russian Bots:

 

DC VIDEO: No Russian Bots …

http://dailycaller.com/2018/01/23/no-russian-bots-note-behind-releasethememo/

 

 

According to The Beast:

 

A knowledgeable source says that Twitter’s internal analysis has thus far found that authentic American accounts, and not Russian imposters or automated bots, are driving #ReleaseTheMemo. There are no preliminary indications that the Twitter activity either driving the hashtag or engaging with it is either predominantly Russian.

 

In short, according to this source, who would not speak to The Daily Beast for attribution, the retweets are coming from inside the country. (No, Russian Bots Weren’t Behind The #ReleaseTheMemo Hashtag; By Chuck Ross; Daily Caller; 1/23/18 6:27 PM)

 

Now you realize that Twitter management is not exactly a Right-leaning Social Platform, right? Ergo, you must understand that the Dems – particularly Senator Feinstein and Rep. Schiff – are calling for Twitter, Facebook and Google to censor Conservative dialog on the Social Platforms used by Americans.

The Russia ‘Fake News’ Scare Is All About Chilling Speech

UNITED STATES – JUNE 16: Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., speaks during a news conference in the Capitol on Democratic on gun control measures, June 16, 2016. (Photo By Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call)

Last week Republicans began to call for the release of a memo authored by House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes that purports to lay out a series of abuses connected to the FBI surveillance of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. As often happens these days, a Twitter hashtag evolved around the effort, #ReleaseTheMemo, and was widely retweeted by Republicans and elected officials.

 

It didn’t take long for a report to emerge claiming that Russian-sponsored Twitter accounts and bots were the real driving force behind the viral call for the release of the memo. Without worrying about the veracity of this convenient claim, all the usual suspects giddily spread the story across social media — probably because they have such a deep reverence for truth in the Era of Trump.

 

The report also prompted Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Rep. Adam Schiff, both Democrats, to pull out every fearmongering catchphrase available to demand that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg perform an “in-depth forensic examination” on the “ongoing attack by the Russian government through Kremlin-linked social media actors directly acting to intervene and influence our democratic process.”

 

It’s difficult, it seems, for some people to embrace neutral principles nowadays. But if you genuinely believe that Donald Trump’s distasteful tweets are attacks on the foundations of free expression, how can you not be alarmed by a pair of powerful elected officials demanding social media companies hand over information about their users? What would they say if the president had sent a letter to Google insisting they give the executive branch an “in-depth forensic examination” of his political opponent’s searches?

 

As it turns out, reports today say that Twitter’s internal analysis found that it was mostly Americans, not creepy Slavic mind-control robots, who were behind the hashtags. Not that it really matters, anyway. If a group of Americans have a legitimate issue to rally around, how are they supposed to control what outsiders do? It’s not as if #ReleaseTheMemo was a secret or illegal. Republican politicians were openly using it.

 

Yet, if Feinstein and Schiff had their way, Twitter and Facebook would have moved to quash the #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag for what turned out to be apparently solely partisan reasons. Sounds like a power that can be abused. Even if the two had been genuinely troubled by Russian hashtags — yes, suspend your disbelief — the source of fake news is not always easily discernible. Sometimes it comes to you from an anonymous Russian bot, and sometimes it’s retweeted by a prominent journalist.

 

Democrats have manufactured panic over amateurish Russian propaganda to not only claim that Vlad Putin was “meddling” in the election, but also to argue that interference had the power to turn the election to Trump. With this risible idea in hand, they have created paranoia about social media interactions and rationalized infringements on expression.

 

Not long before demanding forensic investigations into hashtags, Feinstein was demanding Twitter, Facebook, and Google more tightly restrict its content, threatening, “Do something about it — or we will.” Democrats have attempted to control interactions through Fairness Doctrines or the IRS, and now the Russia scare. Part of living in a free country is dealing with messy, ugly misinformation.

 

 

Lots of people in the United States seem pretty impressed by how they do things in Europe. In Britain, Prime Minister Theresa May is launching “a rapid response unit” run by the state to “battle the proliferation of ‘fake news’ online.” A “National Security Communications Unit” will be tasked to combat misinformation — as if it has either the power or ability to do so. In France, President Emmanuel Macron is working on a plan to combat “fake news,” which includes the power to “emergency block” websites during elections. What could possibly go wrong.

 

Me? I’d rather we live with Russian troll bots feeding us nonsense than authoritarian senators dictating how we consume news. I mean, has anyone yet produced a single voter who lost his or her free will during the 2016 election because he had a Twitter interaction with an employee of a St. Petersburg troll farm? Or do voters tend to seek out the stories that back their own worldviews?

 

If your argument is that American are uninformed and easily misled, I’m with you. Just look at all the people who believe that a $46,000 buy on Facebook by the Russians was enough to destroy the pillars of our democracy. But if you want to live in a free and vibrant nation, you have to live with the externalities of that freedom.

Left’s Free Speech War


Waged with Financial Institutions and Social Media

 

John R. Houk

© September 22, 2017

 

I don’t know if you have noticed the American Left has been trying to shut up Conservative and Counterjihad outlets by attack their pocketbooks based on the Marxist oriented SPLC hate list. The SPLC hate list places non-violent, Conservative/Biblically Christian values organizations as well as those that expose the violent nature inherent in Islamic revered writings on the same list as the violent KKK and the various Neo-Nazi organizations. Ironically the SPLC does not have violent ideologies like Antifa, Black Lives Matter, the New Black Panthers, Marxist-Racist Black Liberation Theology and the ilk on a Hate List.

 

If you are on the SPLC Hate List, financial organizations such as PayPal will terminate your account making it difficult to receive online donations from supporters of non-violent Patriot organizations, Christian Organizations, Counterjihadists, expose the Homosexual Agenda organizations and so on of non-violent charitable or non-profit organizations.

 

You could probably win a bet in saying the Leftist Mainstream Media (MSM) has not reported or extremely under-reported the Leftist attack on the financial situation of these organizations. This is the reason behind me wondering if you were aware of the financial attack.

 

Jihad Watch (Robert Spencer) and Pamela Geller were suspended. Then a few days later were reinstated (Jihad Watch & Geller) to PayPal. I suspect their following made such a big deal that PayPal felt compelled to reinstate them.

 

I use PayPal on my blogs. According to the SPLC I would be a propagator of hate because I would be categorized as a homophobe (Supportive Biblical Values), Pro-Life/anti-abortion thus categorized anti-women’s Rights, Islamophobic (Exposing violence in Islamic revered writings and correlating to today’s Muslim terrorism), Pro-Christian in government yet anti-government in Faith and probably lesser SPLC Marxist violations I can’t think of now at this moment.

 

If a Leftie complains to PayPal they would probably suspend my account. I don’t have a huge Spencer/Geller support base. I would be forced to look elsewhere for online support. Can any of you fellow small potatoes bloggers relate?

 

Bare Naked Islam (BNI) has a story on SPLC-hate related influence, listing other Leftist and Islamic-apologist websites creating their hate lists pushing financial institutions to dump ethical organizations that expose the Left and Pro-Islamist interests. For sure BNI does rub some folks the wrong way with their brusque literary style, but the info is valid.

 

I have found myself in Social Media jail with both Facebook and Google in the past. I always found the jail an interesting plight since I do not use profanity nor do I advocate any kind of violence especially murder, of those I highly disagree with. So, I was in Social Media jail for either being a Biblical Christian, the Leftist epithet of being a homophobe, the Islamic Apologist epithet of Islamophobe or whatever Conservative value upset a whiner who complained.

 

The pseudonymous Counterjihadist Bill Warner discovered Social Media jail recently and he has a much larger following than I. And CBN.com has a story on the effects of SPLC Christian-bashing. I am cross posting the Warner email and the CBN.com story.

Twitter Censorship of Political Islam

 

Google, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter are no longer “friendly” to our message. Political correctness reigns on our major social media platforms and is suppressing free speech across the right and left spectrum of religion and politics. The Islamo-Left is adhering to the Sharia.

There is a distinct possibility that eventually I will be totally censored from these major social media platforms. We need to prepare for that day. The only method of communication that is entirely safe is newsletters. It is for this reason I ask you to forward my newsletters to others and urge them to sign up so the facts about political Islam can be known. I wish to thank those of you who do this now. We must be creative and stand firm for our rights of free speech and expression.

The Hate Machine: How the Southern Poverty Law Center Is Cashing in by Bashing Christians

 

By Dale Hurd

09-19-2017

CBN News

 

Once upon a time, the Southern Poverty Law Center served as a champion in the civil rights struggle. It’s said that the SPLC helped put the Ku Klux Klan out of business. Klan membership used to be in the millions. Today it’s only a few thousand.

 

But when you glance at the SPLC’s map of hate groups in America today, there are so many that one might think America is consumed with hate.

 

But is it?

 

Changing the Definition of ‘Hate’

 

When you’ve put the Klan out of business and won all your battles, but you’re not ready to close your doors, you’ve got to find new enemies to fight.

 

One of those new enemies is former Vanderbilt history professor Dr. Carol Swain. Swain grew up in the old South and fought poverty and racism to become a university professor. She’s an expert on white nationalism. But she has publicly attacked the SPLC, and Swain, a conservative Christian, found herself on the SPLC’s hate list as a supposed “apologist for white supremacists.”

 

Other SPLC targets have included Dr. Ben Carson – who was later removed from its hate list – female genital mutilation victim Hirsi Ali, and even small charities like the Ruth Institute, whose mission is to help families and children. The Ruth Institute said, “If this makes us a ‘hate group,’ so be it.”

 

The SPLC: A ‘Money-Making Machine’

 

Among the list of Christian groups on the SPLC’s Hate Map are many local churches. It’s usually because they oppose the gay agenda.

 

The list includes the Family Research Council. FRC Executive Vice President General Jerry Boykin doesn’t pull any punches, telling CBN News, “First of all, the SPLC, you have to understand, is probably one of the most evil groups in America. They’ve become a money-making machine and they’ve become an absolute Marxist, anarchist organization.”

 

Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian legal group, is also on the list. Kerri Kupec, ADF legal counsel and communications director said, the Southern Poverty Law Center once did good work, “but the SPLC lost its way a long time ago.”

 

Nothing ‘Poor’ About the Southern Poverty Law Center

 

Kupec dismisses the SPLC as a “direct mail scam,” but marvels at the SPLC’s revenues, with assets listed at $315 million.

 

“I have never heard of a group with ‘poverty’ in its name that has so much money,” Kupec said.

 

Apple, JP Morgan, and actor George Clooney are just a few who have given millions to the SPLC; there’s so much money coming in that some of it is going into offshore investments, a red flag for some, but offshore investing among charities is not uncommon.

 

The Link to Violence

 

What is more disturbing is what the SPLC’s opponents call a link to deadly violence against Christians and conservatives.

 

On August 15, 2012, Floyd Lee Corkins stormed into the Family Research Council’s Washington offices intending to kill. He wounded the building manager before he was stopped. A bullet hole still remains in a console in the lobby.

 

After his arrest, Corkins told the FBI where he heard about the Family Research Council’s Washington offices. On FBI video of his interrogation, Corkins says, “Southern Poverty Law lists anti-gay groups. I found them online, did a little bit of research, went to the website, stuff like that.”

 

Boykin adds, “Our people know coming here, based on reality and based on what happened here, they’re taking a risk.”

 

James T Hodgkinson, who shot House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and injured several others at a congressional softball practice this year, had “liked” the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Facebook page.

 

The SPLC later admitted, “We’re aware that the SPLC was among hundreds of groups that the man identified as the shooter ‘liked’ on Facebook. I want to be as clear as I can possibly be: The SPLC condemns all forms of violence.”

 

Is the SPLC Spreading Hate?

 

But after these attacks, some are asking the obvious: Does the Southern Poverty Law Center spread hate?

 

The SPLC did not respond to our invitation to be a part of this story and refute the claims made against it, but publicly remains unapologetic. The SPLC has stated repeatedly that their listing of Christian groups who oppose the LGBT agenda “is completely unrelated to religion, Christianity or the Bible. These groups are listed because they repeatedly lie in an effort to defame LGBT people.”

 

In 2007 former SPLC spokeman Mark Potok told a conference in Michigan, “I want to say plainly that our aim in life is to destroy these groups, to completely destroy them.”

 

  1. James Kennedy Ministries, also on the hate list, is suing the SPLC, and the charitable arm of Amazon, AmazonSmile, for dropping the ministry from their lists of eligible religious charities.

 

The news media has begun using the SPLC’s hate map in stories about racism and bigotry, giving the map even more clout and credibility.

 

CNN published the list under the headline “Here Are All the Hate Groups Active in Your Area” before taking it down.

 

Forty-seven conservative groups and Sen. James Lankford have written the media demanding that it stop using the SPLC hate map as a source.

 

Boykin said, “The SPLC has no authority, except the authority they’ve given themselves, to build a hate map or to list people or organizations as haters.”

 

But there is no sign the Southern Poverty Law Center is changing course when the Left supports it so strongly, the news media relies it, and the donations keep rolling in.

Social Censorship and Racism


John R. Houk

© January 16, 2017

 

I have had my issues of being placed in Facebook and G+ jail under the (FALSE) accusation of posting inappropriate thoughts that violate social community rules. I am guessing many other Conservatives and Counterjihad writers sharing the truth without profanity have also experienced a social ban here and there. Social Ban = Social Jail.

 

The social network via Yahoo Groups (ccpga – Restricted Group) posted a link that exposes this jail phenomenon. Sadly Yahoo Groups are not as active as other social groups; nevertheless, the relatively small members at ccpga are quite active. It is there where I found a link to Constitution.com exposing the idiotic censorship at Facebook.

 

The Facebook poster – Grant Phillips – wrote about the racism involved with teenage Black adults torturing a White disabled mentally challenged young man. Phillips’ thought was pertaining to the MSM not being outraged by “kids” torturing a disabled White man yet contrarily the MSM does not get steamed by the Obama Administration alerting the public to Islamic Terrorism after a terrorist murderer shouts Allahu Akbar. Or calling Black protesters destroying, looting and burning cities are just misunderstood people. Implying Black-Americans need to demonstrate such frustration because of years of oppression. The reality is such actions make Americans displeased and contribute more to racist reactions to show their displeasure.

 

Anyway, read the Constitution.com article which should go viral to protest Facebook censorship and I dare say a cover-up.

Facebook Bans Yet Another Conservative Viral Post that Only Tells the Truth

 

By Onan Coca 

January 15, 2017

Constitution.com

 

About a week ago a gentleman named Grant Phillips, who in and of himself is not famous or celebrated for any particular reason, posted an important and thoughtful note to Facebook.

 

His argument, written in the wake of the vile Chicago hate crime that saw four African-American adults livestream their kidnapping, abuse, and torture of a special needs white man, was well-written and completely factual. Here’s what Phillips had to say:

 

If you yell “f*ck white people” while torturing a special needs white kid, the city of Chicago won’t call it a hate crime and the superintendent will say it’s “just a bunch of kids.” If you yell “Allahu Akbar” right before blowing yourself up in a public area, POTUS won’t call you an Islamic terrorist. If you burn down cities and destroy property, you’re a misunderstood protester fighting oppression. But if you voted for Trump, you’re a violent racist and white supremacist.

 

Facebook to Phillips – Removed post

facebook-to-phillips-removed-post

 

Mr. Phillips’ post quickly went viral reaching over 100,000 people without much pomp or circumstance, a true miracle considering Mr. Phillips lack of fame. The quick expansion of the message must have bothered someone at Facebook, though, because within a few days Facebook had removed the post for violating “community standards.” Apparently, Facebook’s community standards doesn’t appreciate completely honest, factual, and researchable information.

 

Now, on Facebook, Phillips and his friends, along with many other conservatives, are responding by reposting his message far and wide across the social media network. One of his friends argued, “Facebook is showing an increasing proclivity for punishing Conservative views. Let’s not let them get away with it.”

 

I agree, let’s make sure that Facebook knows we won’t let them get away with their suppression of conservative views.

Geller: ‘Fake News’? Left-Wing War on Conservative Websites: Facebook, Google, LA Times, Obama Take Aim


daffy-duck-leftist-communication

I posted yesterday about Leftists using the Fake News meme to discredit Conservatives, in that case pertaining primarily to Pizzagate. Pamela Geller writes about the Leftist Conspiracy to shut down any news that disagrees with Leftist ideals or values as Fake News. (As if Leftist values is representative of traditional American values. I call hogwash!)

Geller: ‘Fake News’? Left-Wing War on Conservative Websites: Facebook, Google, LA Times, Obama Take Aim

 

By PAMELA GELLER

6 Dec 2016

Breitbart – Big Government

 

The left-wing elites and their running dogs in the enemedia are in one of their fictional publicity campaigns that they masquerade as urgent news. Their latest terror is “fake news sites.”

 

The New York Times reported shortly after the election that Google and Facebook “have faced mounting criticism over how fake news on their sites may have influenced the presidential election’s outcome.”

 

That was fake news: “fake news” didn’t influence the presidential election’s outcome, all too real news about the wrong direction in which our nation was headed under Barack Obama did. Nevertheless, the Times said that “those companies responded by making it clear that they would not tolerate such misinformation by taking pointed aim at fake news sites’ revenue sources.”

 

How would they do that? “Google kicked off the action on Monday afternoon when the Silicon Valley search giant said it would ban websites that peddle fake news from using its online advertising service. Hours later, Facebook, the social network, updated the language in its Facebook Audience Network policy, which already says it will not display ads in sites that show misleading or illegal content, to include fake news sites.”

 

A Facebook spokesman explained: “We have updated the policy to explicitly clarify that this applies to fake news. Our team will continue to closely vet all prospective publishers and monitor existing ones to ensure compliance.”

 

The “fake news” controversy has become a huge international story, with the Los Angeles Times among those leading the charge with headlines such as “Want to keep fake news out of your newsfeed? College professor creates list of sites to avoid”; “Fake news writers: ‘Hillary Clinton, here are your deplorables’”; and “Fake news writers abuse the 1st Amendment and endanger democracy for personal profit.

 

There is conspiracy theory and there is conspiracy fact, and what we have on our hands is one mother of a left-wing conspiracy parading as a right wing conspiracy. You can’t make this stuff up. It’s diabolical. In the run-up to the election, I reported on a number of fake conservative new sites created by left-wing operatives in order to discredit the conservatives’ news sites. If you have a bogus conservative site, it makes a conservative site look questionable. “News sites” like the Baltimore Gazette and the National Report were dropping hoaxes for months to discredit conservatives who might pick up the story.

 

I always understood that the objective was to taint the conservative newssphere. Sites were created to spread disinformation and shame the right-wingers who jumped on it. This is classic disinformation. It’s always games, games, games… from the people who brought you Soros’ rent-a-mob — rioting, looting and destruction in cities, etc. even going so far as to risk a few deaths all for the cause. But what I didn’t see coming is their ultimate goal: the shut-down of free speech. The left wants to crush free speech, which has been in their cross-hairs for some time now.

 

The left is always preaching about true democracy, but they seize power as fast and as ruthlessly as they can. And they’re always harping about “controversial” matters that either don’t exist or are fabricated, or are of little import.

 

If a blogger or news writer gets a story wrong, does that designate him or her, or his or her site, as “fake news”? If that’s the case, they’ll have to shut down the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe, ABC News, NBC News, CBS News, CNN, etc. They get things wrong all the time. Every article written about my colleagues, my work, or myself is fake. Most of what they wrote and didn’t write about the Orlando mass slaughter at the gay nightclub was disinformation and deception.

 

If you issue a correction, does that somehow remove the fake news scarlet letter? This is all a big fat lie — it is an end-run around the First Amendment, and it’s disastrous. It is indeed true that Facebook has too much power, but banning “fake news” sites is hardly the solution. That’s Zuckerberg’s fix-it? It would be funny if it weren’t so Hitlerian. Facebook has too much power. Its news curators, mini-Goebbelians — are more frightening than Kafka’s antagonists. Facebook should be broken up like Ma Bell was. Facebook doesn’t decide what’s good and what’s forbidden. Left-wing fascists do not and must not decide what news people can and cannot see. But that’s exactly what we are seeing on Facebook.
