    There is a growing darkness in the country. We are in the midst of a coup- a coup of the Constitution. Pelosi once asserted that dissent was patriotic. Now it is racist. Now dissent is punished if one strays from the party line. CRT is the new "n word." The government has become weaponized against conservatives. The current President, as did the last D President, tries to tip the scales of justice. The tech giants are allies in this process. Facebook has become one of the arbiters of freedom of speech. Under the guise of the nebulous "community standards" the...

    Twitter, Facebook deemed defendant guilty immediately after Wisconsin shooting Social media platforms rendered a verdict on Kyle Rittenhouse long before he went to trial, suppressing claims that he was innocent and blocking users from searching for details of the case. Immediately after the anti-police riots that thrust Rittenhouse into the national spotlight, social media companies began to block users who expressed support for the Illinois teen. Twitter suspended the accounts of users who called Rittenhouse innocent, including the defendant's own lawyer. Facebook said it "designated this shooting as a mass murder and … removed the shooter’s accounts from Facebook and...

    After years of steadily accumulating power, 2021 is the year that Big Tech well and truly flexed its muscle. Gone are the days of banning mere Twitter pundits and demonetizing YouTube channels. In 2021, Big Tech silenced the sitting US president. They stopped the elected chief executive of the world’s largest economy and most powerful military from communicating with the American people. He lost the ability to tweet, post videos, or even send out a mass email.

    Big Tech platform Facebook is aggressively censoring any searches for information about the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, an Illinois youth falsely accused of homicide by Wisconsin prosecutors following a self-defense incident at an ANTIFA riot. Reports of Facebook turning off any and all search results amid the trial began last week, with Facebook users sharing evidence of totally disabled searches for Rittenhouse.

    As Kyle Rittenhouse's prosecutors go into their grand facepalms, following the trial revelation from their star witness that just supported the 17-year-old murder defendant's claim to self-defense, it's pretty obvious the wretched case is now over. AT deputy editor Andrea Widburg has an excellent post today on that here.The short story here is that the kid was beset by Antifa thugs during the Kenosha, Wisconsin arson-and-looting riots last summer and ended up killing a couple of menacing Antifa-linked thugs who seemed to be trying to kill him first. The argument stands up, and even the guy who'd been aiming the...

    Microsoft’s virtual conference Ignite 2021 was all about hybrid work, metaverse and the cloud, but it opened with “land acknowledgments” to local native tribes and featured speakers describing their race and preferred pronouns. ... Before any of that could happen, however, senior program manager Allison Weins had a ritual to perform. “We need to acknowledge that the land where the Microsoft campus is situated was is traditionally occupied by the Sammamish, Duwamish, Snoqualmie, Suquamish, Muckleshoot, Snohomish, Tulalip, and other coast Salish people since time immemorial,” Weins said, “a people who are still continuing to honor and bring to light their...

    Remember when Amazon was pulling books by conservative authors because they’d hurt the feelings of liberals? Someone tucks their package back as far as they can, slaps on a dress, and suddenly they get to dictate what everyone else can buy. It’s a neat little trick Democrats try to repeat every chance they get. But if you don’t use Amazon, you might not know about what things Jeff Bezos deems perfectly fine products people can buy, so I thought I’d point out a few to you. I forget what I was looking for, it was probably something obscure that had...

    After “tackling” – some say disastrously for online speech – the topics of US elections and Covid by promoting content that is considered “authoritative” and suppressing, to various degrees, everything else, Facebook, Twitter, and Google are further narrowing the space for their users’ free expression. These enormous digital squares, the social platforms-turned-approved speech enforcers will now add climate change to the list of issues discussions about which are strictly controlled and censored, when information users post or share clashes with the giants’ idea of what’s true and what’s false. Media like Axios already have something akin to a pejorative for...

    The imperative to reclaim our most foundational sovereignty—that is, greater direct control of our day-to-day actions, thoughts, interactions, business decisions, and, ultimately, our very shared human destiny—from the machines and their manipulated algorithms is the sine qua non of just and righteous “tech”-related policymaking in the digital age. This is a point that I attempted to hammer home time and again in my recent “Big Tech” debate in Grand Rapids, Michigan against Carl Szabo of NetChoice. Based on all the nodding heads I noticed in the audience, it resonated. The American people by and large oppose digital enslavement. But instinctively,...

    Americans are aware Big Tech has been censoring, shadow banning, and/or de-platforming people for years. These social media sites regularly suppress information they don’t like, and outright ban those with views that are antithetical to their ideology. The argument from the political right and the left is basically that Congress should regulate these entities. Conservatives say more content should be allowed; Liberals say there should be much less. Regardless of any potential congressional regulations, you know Big Tech is shutting down your voice, but what you may not know is that Big Tech is also shutting down your vote. In...

In the latest episode of "Tucker Carlson Today," Hemingway describes a strategic effort by the tech billionaire, who she says bought left-wing activists access to local government administration election offices, enabling partisan staffers to organize massive get-out-the-vote efforts in largely blue cities from the inside.... ...

    Facebook the company is being renamed to Meta, and the social network will be a brand within that entity, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said on Thursday. You may think that this is just a cheap and cynical rebranding exercise to mitigate the ongoing controversies in which Facebook is mired. But this move goes way beyond that. We're well beyond an organization renaming itself to simply signal a change in direction or attitude. We're beyond a company trying to shed its toxic image. This isn't an antidote to the poison. Mark Zuckerberg has gone off the deep end. The name change heralds...

    Facebook is changing its company name to "Meta." Mark Zuckerberg made the announcement last week after several weeks of terrible press and political attacks against the company. Zuckerberg wants the company's focus to be on what he calls the "metaverse," an online virtual reality world that connects to actual reality. On October 4, 2021, Facebook went dark. So too did its other outlets, WhatsApp and Instagram. A friend texted me, "I cannot remember the last time I pooped without reading memes on Instagram." The outage came as Congress began hearings on Facebook, complete with a whistleblower, Frances Haugen. Congress wants...

    Facebook is facing inquiry by FTC into whether it breached privacy agreement A company-wide email sent on Tuesday night told staff to 'preserve internal documents and communications since 2016' in a move known as a 'legal hold'. It comes following bombshell claims from former employee-turned-whistleblower Frances Haugen that the tech giant ignored internal complaints from staff for years to put profits first, 'lied' to investors and shielded CEO Mark Zuckerberg from public scrutiny. the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has begun scrutinizing the leaked internal research and said it will closely examine whether the company broke any agreements in the $5billion...

    The increasingly authoritarian tendencies of our elites and the institutions they control is a sign of their weakness and impotence and loss of control.If you want to know how well our elites are managing to control the discourse, consider this: a pair of “Let’s Go Brandon” anthems shot to the top of iTunes chart rankings this week.Rapper Bryson Gray’s song hit number one despite getting banned from YouTube on the ridiculous pretext that it contains “medical misinformation,” while rapper Loza Alexander’s “Let’s Go Brandon” hit number two.

  • Power Hungry Big Tech Seeks to Devour American Democracy

    Big Tech has a big appetite for power – and it fully intends to devour American democracy. The recent reporting by The New York Post proves once again that political bias has always been and will always be the driving force behind Big Tech’s actions -- which is precisely why the American people should be wary of any tech giant’s campaign to influence the legislative process in Washington. For years, social media giants such as Facebook have insisted that their censorship policies stem from good intentions, and that their public advocacy efforts are strictly nonpartisan. “At Facebook, we took our...
