    Facebook on Tuesday banned hundreds of accounts, groups and pages that it said were linked to the Boogaloo movement, a loosely organized extremist collective whose members have occasionally shown up armed to racial justice and anti-quarantine protests around the country. The banned content includes a core set of 220 Facebook accounts, 95 accounts on Facebook-owned Instagram and dozens of pages and groups that Facebook, in a blog post, said posed a "credible threat" to public safety. Facebook said the accounts were "actively promoting violence against civilians, law enforcement, and government officials and institutions."

    Jim Jordan, Elise Stefanik and Nikki Haley all have something in common, other than a strong affection towards President Trump. The three Republican politicians joined social media app Parler this week, adding their profiles to a site that’s emerged as the new digital stomping ground for anti-Twitter conservatives. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas arrived earlier this month and Rep. Devin Nunes of California started in February, while Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky has been a member since 2018, the year the app launched. “It’s about time y’all joined me on @parler_app,” Paul tweeted on Wednesday. “What’s taking the rest of...

    I have a question. What use is a federal government that refuses to protect our basic constitutional rights? Twitter and Google and Facebook are censoring and demonizing conservative political speech, and nobody does a thing. Democrat mayors and governors are bankrupting American citizens by preventing them from engaging in simple commerce, and they're getting away with it. Street mobs across America are causing millions of dollars in property damage, destroying priceless historical monuments; killing police officers; and targeting random, unlucky citizens based on the color of their skin, and the press cheerlead the madness and defend the murderers and arsonists...

    The police chief of Lowell, Michigan, was forced to resign Thursday after using a Facebook post to praise four citizens who armed themselves to oppose looters. WOOD reports Chief Steven Bukala posted a photo of the four armed citizens and wrote, “So these fine young men called me today. They wanted to exercise their Second Amendment rights and walk down Main Street. They saw what happened in Grand Rapids. They said it’s not going to happen here. We have your backs. I thanked them for letting me know they were in town and to call if they see something.”

    The Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division and the Securities and Exchange Commission have signed an interagency Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) to foster cooperation and communication between the agencies with the aim of enhancing competition in the securities industry. Assistant Attorney General Makan Delrahim of the Antitrust Division announced the first-ever MOU between the Antitrust Division and the SEC, which was executed with SEC Chairman Jay Clayton before a discussion on equity market structure hosted by MIT’s Golub Center for Finance and Policy this afternoon.“The Antitrust Division and the SEC have prioritized close cooperation with one another in recent years...
  • Project Veritas: Facebook Moderation Aims To “Get The Cheetoh Out Of Office”

    What lesson can we draw from the latest Project Veritas peek into Facebook’s content moderators? Perhaps the oldest lesson of all — power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Will anyone truly feel surprised to hear these bureaucratic functionaries chortling with glee over their control over other people’s political speech and the imposition of their own agendas over that of Facebook users? “We are essentially in charge of what gets said and what gets stifled,” former moderator Zach McElroy tells James O’Keefe, and it’s very clear that they all know it: In one example, McElroy captured as a screenshot, President...

    Facebook launched a new program to incentivize its users in America to vote in the 2020 election. It announced that the platform plans to help 4 million people go out and vote. The move comes amidst massive internal and external pressure on the company to restrict or censor content from President Donald Trump. So far, Facebook has not agreed. “People want accountability, and in a democracy the ultimate way we do that is through voting,” wrote CEO Mark Zuckerberg in an op-ed for USA Today. In a company blog post, VP of Product Management and Social Impact Naomi Gleit wrote,...
  • Is old-fashioned Marxist class warfare at work in America’s media?

    American Thinker ^ | 17 Jun, 2020 | Andrea Widburg
    The fact that America, unlike Europe’s class-based societies, has always had economic mobility, has meant that pure Marxism, which is predicated on class warfare, hasn’t managed to take root here. Instead, America’s hardcore leftists eventually realized that America’s Achilles’ heel isn’t class; it’s race. Using race as the spearpoint, leftists have managed to spur America’s limousine liberals into an orgy of apology. Meanwhile, corporations staffed with indoctrinated college graduates send out virtue-signaling messages backed with big bucks, not just because they’re true believers but in a desperate attempt to buy off looters and McCarthyites. It turns out, though, that there...
  • Foam-Flecked Facebook Freakout: Scarborough's Screaming Anti-Zuckerberg Rant

    Joe Scarborough went on a screaming anti-Zuckerberg rant on Wednesday's Morning Joe. The gist, per Scarborough, was that Zuckerberg is insufficiently censoring far-right groups and foreign manipulators on Facebook -- although Scarborough pointedly declined to mention Facebook by name, referring to it only as "Zuckerberg's website". Joe started out calmly, but got increasingly agitated, and ultimately pegged the sound system several times [as at 1:25, 3:50, and 4:35 in the clip]. And the obsessed Scarborough mentioned Zuckerberg by name at least 18 times during the segment. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Remember when the progressive media feigned concern over foreign influence on our elections? Now, just months before a critical election, they are conspiring with foreign groups to destroy conservative publications, with the assistance of Google, the most powerful information provider in the history of the world. This tweet from the head of the foreign group shows the mentality at work: CCDH CEO, @Imi_Ahmed: “We take Google at face value when they say #BlackLivesMattters... but right now they are funding hate-filled and conspiracy-filled sites that may have a right to free speech, but they absolutely do not have a right...

    Joe Biden's presidential campaign on Thursday called for Facebook to change its rules about posts from politicians and to strengthen its policies against election-related misinformation. In an open letter from the former vice president and presumptive Democratic nominee's campaign to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the campaign urged Facebook to make changes to the platform's hands-off approach to political speech. The letter calls on Facebook to "proactively stem the tide of false information" by fact-checking election-related material that goes viral. It also urges the social media platform to fact-check political ads two weeks before elections. Facebook has faced intense criticism for...

    House Judiciary Committee Member Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Thursday that it is clear to him "big tech" will try to prevent President Trump from being reelected in November. Gaetz claimed that tech companies "buy off" members of Congress in order to maintain special privileges that local newspapers and television stations do not have. "That's why the president's executive order is one very important next step," he said. "If we just wait around, big tech will steal this election from Donald Trump and the American people."

    President Trump said Wednesday that he will “strongly regulate” or even “close down” social media platforms, one day after Twitter flagged two of his posts. The president made the vow on Twitter after the social media platform added a message to the tweets that linked to a page disputing the accuracy of his posts. Trump and other conservatives argue that social media is censuring or silencing their messages.

    A Columbia University political science professor told a Republican college student to 'drop dead' and called him a 'neo-nazi enabler' for supporting President Trump's coronavirus efforts during an argument on social media. . . . Montalvo, the New York State Vice Chairman of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly, told the newspaper that his response to the cartoon 'defended President Trump on how he's handled the pandemic.' 'People choose what they want to see and everyone has an opinion,' Montalvo wrote on Facebook, according to the screenshot he tweeted out.
