    Now that others are venturing timidly from their foxholes, I can take to print without becoming the sole target of a vengeful, monopolistic technocracy. It appears that Google, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter have all gone to war with President Trump, and are punishing anyone who dares to speak up for him. Don’t take my word for it. See for yourself. It may cost you $5 and you may find your Google Ads account temporarily suspended, but you will enjoy the innocent conversations with kindly Google employees in Mumbai as they try to explain policies unrelated to what is really going...
  • Comedy Threatens Liberalism So Liberals Want To Kill It

    It’s important to laugh at liberals, which is why liberals want to stamp out laughter. Laughter is subversive. Back when comedy was funny, before it got woke, the left used to use it to undermine traditional culture. Now that they have the wheel of the cultural car, they are afraid that people pointing and giggling at their hypocrisy, venality, and stupidity will make them lose control and crash.Hence, comedy must die.Sadly, it’s the comedians themselves who are carrying the wood to pile up around the stake. Now that liberals are firmly in control of the culture, comedy is no longer...

    BOSTON (WCVB/CNN) - A neighbor of the Samuel Adams brewery in Boston has hung up a sign aimed at shaming the brewery's founder for his remarks at a dinner with President Donald Trump. The sign says “Shame!” and “Sam Adams (heart) Trump.” It’s a response to Jim Koch, the founder of Sam Adams producer Boston Beer Company, endorsing Trump’s tax cuts. The sign is visible from the brewery parking lot. The person who hung it said he wants an apology from Sam Adams' CEO himself. "It's only been up a couple of days,” said Jeremy Phillips, who created the sign....

    A Houston Tex-Mex restaurant has shut down its social media accounts after receiving insults and death threats for posting a picture of executive chef Domenic Laurenzo with U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. KHOU11, a CBS affiliate, reported the restaurant posted the photo Friday and wrote that it was an “honor” to serve the attorney general, thanking him “for allowing us to serve you.” The Tex-Mex eatery was immediately hit with criticism online. Some called for a boycott of the restaurant and Laurenzo told KHOU that he received death threats. Laurenzo told KHOU that the response was entirely unexpected. “We didn’t...

    Houston chain El Tiempo Cantina appears to have deleted its social media pages, a day after a photo of the restaurant's owner with Attorney General Jeff Sessions drew outrage and calls for a boycott. El Tiempo did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but the chain's Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages were down Saturday afternoon. On Friday, owner Roland Laurenzo posted a photo with a caption saying it was an "honor" to serve Sessions, who was in town to discuss immigration enforcement with law enforcement officers. The post was quickly condemned by customers, some of whom called for...

    Austin American-Statesman ^ | August 11th, 2018 | By Sebastian Herrera and Nicole Cobler
    Some of the nation’s largest technology and social media companies have tried to stop Alex Jones and his conspiracy theories. But in a digital world, their attempts seem to have barely slowed him down. After YouTube, Facebook and others this week removed content by Jones and his website, the InfoWars leader, talk show host and Austin resident fired back, accusing the companies of censorship and urging his audience to fight back against what he called an “unprecedented attack.” Meanwhile, Jones’ website and other online platforms have remained popular destinations. InfoWars continues to see more than 1 million page visits per...

    A sorority at Harvard University has decided to close rather than admit men who claim to be women into their group amid the university's sanctions against single-gender social organizations. In May, Zeta Phi-Cambridge — the Delta Gamma chapter at Harvard — voted to relinquish their charter and thereby shut down, Campus Reform reported Monday. Sanctions from the university came about in December 2017 when new rules were adopted which established that members of single-sex organizations like Zeta Phi were not allowed to hold leadership posts in officially recognized student organizations or be captains of sports teams. The new rules also...
  • Small Conservative Outlets Are Being Shadowbanned En Masse

    08/09/2018 12:51:56 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 28 replies
    The Revolutionary Act is a growing conservative news and commentary site, but it is still quite small compared to the big conservative players. That doesn’t mean, however, that the giant social media censors do not Hoover it up for squashing. The suppressive algorithms clearly cover the conservative spectrum and hit rightist content providers regardless of size, strangling conservative content from cradle to grave. InfoWars being eradicated from multiple platforms within hours of each other was a draconian and possibly monopolistic measure against a site considered to be on the right but was really its own conspiratorial wing of the political...
  • Colleges Are Rejecting Applicants Who Follow Controversial People On Twitter

    While major Internet platforms are busy silencing Alex Jones of Infowars.com, prestigious colleges are rejecting applicants who connect on social media with him and others with opinions not considered mainstream. We are not talking about applicants who are retweeting alleged hate speech,  alleged “Fake News”, or alleged hoaxes. We are talking about just following a Twitter feed of someone whose views are frowned upon by members of an admissions committee.While one of my legal clients (a 17 year old teen) was being interviewed by one of the most competitive colleges in the country he was asked why he was following Alex Jones...

    I’ve been warning everyone who would listen about the greatest threat to freedom of speech, freedom of the press and freedom of religion in America today. It’s not government. Instead, the overt attack on America’s First Amendment comes from the corporate behemoth new media gatekeepers who are in ideological lockstep with each other – from Google to YouTube to Facebook to Twitter to Apple to Amazon. This week, YouTube and Facebook followed Apple’s lead in banishing Alex Jones, the iconic, high-energy voice that rails against globalism and the Deep State daily on radio, podcasts and his own Infowars TV show....

    Frontpagemagazine ^ | August 8, 2018 | Matthew Vadum
    Holocaust victim's legacy is misappropriated by deranged leftists. A new leftist politics-tainted theatrical production of The Diary of Anne Frank in Los Angeles outrageously compares the Trump administration to the German Nazi regime by replacing Nazis hunting for Jews with ICE agents tracking down Latino illegal aliens. Although the play is set to open Sept. 6 in Los Angeles, the comparison between Anne Frank and illegal aliens in the United States is beyond farfetched.  Illegal aliens enter the U.S. without permission. They are, legally speaking, the authors of their own misfortune. Nonetheless, efforts to apprehend them are not persecutory, and when they...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) is slamming conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch and Fox News, saying that “we would be a more unified country" without their influence. “If you could remove News Corp from the last 25 years of American history, we would be in an entirely different place," de Blasio told The Guardian last week before he spoke at an event in New Orleans, adding that he believes Murdoch is responsible for President Trump's election in 2016. De Blasio said if it weren't for Murdoch and Fox News, "we would not be suffering a lot of...

Google-YouTube followed suit and also terminated the InfoWars Account.The tech tyrants launched a coordinated attack on Alex Jones and Infowars.But Democrats and their media already have their sights on a much bigger target. FOX NEWS– Facebook scheduled a public event with reporters last month to promote the new Facebook Watch video feature.The situation turned ugly when the invited “news reporters” screamed about Facebook allowing FOX News and Infowars on their platform.

    Austin’s Equity Office has recommended renaming the Texas city because of Stephen F. Austin's alleged views on slavery. But why stop at just renaming Austin when Amerigo Vespucci took and sold slaves. Austin, Texas is named after Stephen F. Austin, but America is named after Amerigo Vespucci. New York City has been on its own anti-history binge, demoting the statue of the ‘Father of Gynecology’ and tearing out plaques memorializing Robert E. Lee attached to a tree that he had once planted, but it’s got bigger problems. The city is named after King James II whose Royal African Company branded...

    FULL TITLE: West Hollywood city council votes unanimously to REMOVE Donald Trump's star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame because of the President's 'disturbing treatment of women' West Hollywood city council has unanimously approved a motion calling for the removal of Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Put forth by West Hollywood Mayor pro tempore John D'Amico and Councilwoman Lindsey Horvath, the motion, passed on Monday night, seeks the removal of the landmark 'due to [Trump's] disturbing treatment of women and other actions.' However, the vote is not legally binding as the council has no control over...

    Big tech’s coordinated purge of InfoWars — which was hit by bans from Apple, Facebook, Spotify and YouTube in rapid succession — did not occur in a vacuum. On this issue, Silicon Valley bowed to CNN journalists and Democrat politicians who ceaselessly lobbied for the site to be censored. It’s a sign of how the concentration of power in America has shifted from big government to big tech that politicians are now lobbying tech companies rather than the other way round, but that’s exactly what happened over the course of the past few months, as Democrats applied relentless pressure on...

    Following the removal of Alex Jones from Facebook, Apple and YouTube, for violating “hate speech” policies, Democrat Senator Chris Murphy tweeted “Infowars is just the tip of a giant iceberg.”Monday afternoon Murphy tweeted, “I know Facebook and Apple and YouTube have gotten so big they sometimes seem like the government. But they aren’t. They are private companies that shouldn’t knowingly spread lies and hate. They took a good first step today removing Infowars. Infowars is just the tip of the iceberg of hate and lies that uses sites like Facebook and Youtube to tear our nation apart. These companies must do more than take down one website. The survival of our...

    On Monday, YouTube became the latest platform to boot content of the conspiracy theorist Alex Jones from its site, hours after Apple first took steps to remove most of Jones' podcasts from its services, citing the company's hate-speech guidelines. Now, those who try to visit The Alex Jones Channel on YouTube will be greeted by a note saying the account "has been terminated for violating YouTube's Community Guidelines." https://www.businessinsider.com/youtube-removes-alex-jones-infowars-channels-from-platform-2018-8

During the meeting, Mr. Duran said the resolution “is not because of his conservative politics or his conservative policies. It is for the abuse of women, minorities, immigrants, the disabled … you’ve crossed a line of decency.” He also said the constituent...

    Controversial Infowars star Alex Jones' removal from Facebook, YouTube, Apple and Spotify over the past 24 hours, prompting even some of the bomb thrower's staunch critics to voice censorship concerns. Apple removed Jones’ podcasts on Sunday and then YouTube and Facebook both declared on Monday that he was violating their terms and policies with his rhetoric. Spotify also removed all episodes of “The Alex Jones Show” from its service. Jones quickly became one of the top trends across social media with critics celebrating that he was pulled from the tech giants and others coming to his defense -- sort of....
