    Facebook is demonetizing the Christian, political satire page “The Babylon Bee” after they published an article satirizing Sen. Mazie Hirono’s comments during the Amy Coney Barrett hearings in a fictional depiction. The Bee’s CEO Seth Dillon announced the demonetization on Tuesday in a tweet, claiming that the big tech company pulled down the article based on a “regurgitated joke from a Monty Python movie.” “So after a manual review, Facebook says they stand by their decision to pull down this article and demonetize our page. I’m not kidding,” he wrote. “They say this article ‘incites violence.’ It’s literally a regurgitated...

    Google’s video platform, YouTube, doesn’t want people to know the Michigan kidnapping plot’s alleged ringleader considered President Trump an “enemy.” The man, now in federal custody, is named Brandon Caserta, and he made a series of videos while preparing his kidnapping plot against Michigan’s Governor Gretchen Whitmer. In one such video, Caserta expounds on his anarchist philosophy, calling President Trump an enemy. “Trump is not your friend, dude,” Caserta says. “And it amazes me that people actually, like, believe that, when he’s shown over and over and over again that he’s a tyrant. Every single person that works for government...
  • Joe Biden and Son Crime Syndicate: The Journey of Hunter Biden's Hard Drive Data From Repair Shop to Rudy Giuliani

    Hunter Biden's hard drive. The biggest news story of last week (and perhaps the whole year!) and the gift that keeps on a-giving. Late Thursday (10/16/2020) evening, Rudy Giuliani granted an exclusive interview to the Daily Caller. Here's what we learned. The journey of Hunter's hard drive data did not run smoothly. It also took more time than one would assume and has been vetted more thoroughly than the Left wants you to know. According the Left, the data came from a computer hack. Not even remotely true. But even if it did, the data is still sound. If it...

    T.J. L’Heureux, Arizona Democratic Senate candidate Mark Kelly’s deputy press secretary, called police “worthless f–ing pigs” in a tweet posting. This week, under pressure from the campaign, he apologized saying “I deeply regret my comment and apologize for what I wrote. My comment does not reflect who I am or what I believe. I have deleted the tweet.” Afterward L’Heureux lamented what he called “the disturbing trend in our society that forces a person to have to apologize for his personal opinions. It’s not as if I was tweeting something that any loyal Democrat would disagree with, but the climate...
  • Censoring the Biden story: How social media becomes state media

    The Hill ^ | October 17, 2020 | Jonathan Turley
    ....The tech companies' actions are an outrageous example of open censorship and bias. It shows how private companies effectively can become state media working for one party. This, of course, was more serious than deleting coughs, but it was based on the same excuse of "protecting" the public from distractions or distortions. Indeed, it was the realization of political and academic calls that have been building for years. Democratic leaders from Hillary Clinton to Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) have long demanded such private censorship from social media companies, despite objections from some of us in the free speech community; Joe...

    Are Jack Dorsey, who has lied to Congress, and Mark Zuckerberg, who has no love fot freedom, democracy, and the Constitution, Russian assets? President Donald Trump was accussed of being a Russian asset because Moscow’s operatives tried to influence American opinion by buying a few thousand dollars of Facebook ads while fake Twitter accounts planted dubious stories. So how is Twitter and Facebook not meddling in our elections by suppressing a major American niewspaper’s URL for a story deemed harmful to one candidate in a presidential election? If there ever was any doubt that the social media tech giants Twitter...

    Cameras are everywhere... Do you have a cell phone? Unless it’s an old antiquated flip phone, there’s a camera. Public parks, roadways, the parking garage at your favorite shopping center, police officers wearing body cameras, school…they are everywhere. There was a time when Americans viewed the presence of security cameras in a private business as a creepy Orwellian intrusion into their private lives. They didn’t want to be recorded and watched as they did their shopping or when they went into the bank to cash their paychecks. Those days came and went and Americans accepted and adapted those cameras. Then...

    The Biden campaign announced that it is hiring Facebook executive Jessica Hertz to join his transition team as general counsel in charge of ethical issues. This is the Campaign’s second “big tech” addition to the transition team. Earlier, Twitter’s Director of Public Policy, Carlos Monje, was hired to co-chair the transition team’s infrastructure policy committee. A spokesperson for the Campaign called the hires “a natural consequence of both Twitter’s and Facebook’s anti-Trump policies. Rather than hew to an out-dated notion of impartiality, both of these highly influential information gatekeepers have actively identified content that lies outside the accepted progressive narrative...

Police received a call for help on September 16. Officers discovered the child had several questionable cell phone apps...

    The Ohio Star ^ | September 19, 2020 | Chris Whitw
    More than half of American voters strongly or somewhat support breaking up Silicon Valley tech giants to promote competition, according to a poll published Thursday. Only 26% of voters oppose or strongly oppose splitting up the country’s largest tech companies, while 19% of those surveyed didn’t offer a view, a poll from progressive think tank Data for Progress showed. The poll, which surveyed 1,200 likely voters in September, comes as the House lawmakers conclude their nearly yearlong probe into the industry’s supposed anticompetitive behavior. In the same poll, roughly 60% of respondents expressed support for a prompt on smartphones asking...

    Here is the deal. Twitter probably uses machine learning systems to identify videos of child sexual exploitation. User @koenigjake said he tried to post “video of evidence on how Biden interacts with woman and little girls” but Twitter flagged him “for trying to post images of child molestation.” The fact he wasn’t able to respond suggests the automated filters identified the type of video ON UPLOAD. Also, if it were a manual review, it’s unlikely Twitter would label the video ‘child sexual exploitations.’ Read More...

    Yesterday an individual was doxed because of his alleged activities involved with the QAnon movement. The QAnon Movement started in the middle of 2017 and attracted a huge following. Some of the information shared within the loosely connected organization was authentic and of high quality. Because of its success and popularity, outside influences from Russia and others inserted themselves into the movement and leftists attempted to identify who its leaders were...
