  • That was fast (1776 Report)

    THAT WAS FAST: Minutes after Biden took office, the Report of President Trump’s 1776 Commission (on which my colleague Peter Kirsanow served) was taken off the White House website. I am told a Biden Executive Order has abolished the 1776 Commission already. This afternoon I got an email from Pete. As he put it, this “tells you everything about the Left’s priorities–can’t have the truth about America out there for even a minute” and “I’m sure the Fahrenheit 451 crowd is tracking down every copy they can.”

    It had to happen. People who call themselves WRITERS are signing a letter pressuring publishers to ban Trump, and anyone who has worked for him: Do not publish a Trump memoir. Stay away from him. The letter was penned by Barry Lyga. Who? LA Times, January 15 [1]: “More than 250 authors, editors, agents, professors and others in the American literary community signed an open letter this week opposing any publisher that signs book deals with President Donald Trump or members of his administration.” “Former DC Comics president Paul Levitz, journalist Sarah Weinman and ‘Little Fires Everywhere’ author Celeste Ng...

    On November 5, I posted a number of links to my Facebook page (linked at the bottom of this post, not that it matters at this point) discussing some, er, ah, "irregularities" in Michigan on election night. Both got the perfunctury "Partly false information. Checked by Independent fact checkers" that so many of us have seen since for the last few months. But a few hours after the second one was flagged, I was informed that I was put on a 30 day suspension from posting or commenting on FB. If you're reading this you don't need any more background...

    Hungarian Justice Minister Judit Varga said Monday that Hungary is considering sanctions against big tech firms over alleged “systemic abuses” of free speech, Reuters reported. Varga plans to meet with the Hungarian Competition Authority this week to discuss possible penalties for what he says are unfair commercial practices utilized by social media firms including Facebook and Twitter, according to Reuters. In addition, the minister plans to convene a meeting with the state-sponsored Digital Freedom Committee. Government officials have begun to criticize alleged censorship of conservatives on social media platforms. Varga decried supposed “shadowban” techniques used by social media firms in...

    The Federalist ^ | 01/19/2021 | Kylee Zempel
    One of the most shocking developments in the days following the latest Capitol riot has been the ease with which left-wing corporations and tech behemoths have been able to deny service to people on the right.This is surprising not because of some conservative delusion that the increasingly progressive corporate world is friendly to our views. We know better. No, this blatantly belief-based discrimination is astounding because of the holy war that erupts any time a conservative attempts to deny services to another person based on constitutionally protected and deeply-held religious beliefs.When the left refuses service due to an arbitrary standard...
  • WATCH: Apple CEO Tim Cook Accidentally Reveals Collusion Between Big Tech Companies To Censor Free Speech

    01/19/2021 6:57:13 AM PST · by A.M. Smith · 20 replies
    Apple’s CEO Tim Cook took his mask all the way off this weekend when he was talking about removing Parler from the app store from existence through a coordinated monopolistic collusion with other tech giants over supposed incitement concerns. He also gave away the overall game. He said they don’t “consider” the parts of Parler they don’t like to be “free speech.” And then, without realizing it, revealed the reason for, and method of, collusion between the tech giants. It was the “incitement” talk that foreshadowed Cook’s Sunday commentary. See, as we’ve been saying in our ongoing tracking of the...

    Facebook has censored a video of Cardinal Juan Sandoval Íñiguez, archbishop emeritus of Guadalajara, for suggesting that globalist leaders are exploiting the coronavirus pandemic to bring about a new world order. In place of the cardinal’s weekly video, Facebook exhibited a greyed-out screenshot emblazoned with the banner “False information.” Underneath, Facebook added, “This publication repeats information about COVID-19 that independent fact checkers deemed false.” On its Facebook page, Semanario Arquidiocesano Guadalajara, an information service run by the Archdiocese of Guadalajara, posted the following screenshot on January 13, along with the text “Cardinal Juan Sandoval denounced the imposition of a new...

    In recent days I’ve been made aware of dozens of conversations by former Twitter users that thousands of people might not only be eligible to sue #BigTweet but expect a bit of a payday in doing so.Beginning the day following the January 6th activities in Washington, DC, Jack Dorsey got aggressive, hostile, and intentional in the mishandling of his enterprise.The argument that Twitter—as a private company—can do what they wish with impunity is holding less water as the scope of the malfeasance is coming to light.By estimates from my own observation and discussion with others, Dorsey intentionally maligned the welfare...

    An influential pro-Trump discussion board active in the buildup to the Jan. 6 Capitol attack faces the prospect of being shut down by its web-hosting company for allegedly fostering white supremacist and violent extremism. Robert Davis, senior vice president of Epik Inc., told The Wall Street Journal his firm warned TheDonald.Win it might be dropped within days if it fails to better cull what he said are discussions glorifying violence, propagating white supremacy and fomenting extremism. “They need to recognize the critical role they play as an inspirational place rather than a hotbed of extremism,” Mr. Davis said. “Epik has...

    Concerned that “free speech can be abused by enemies of the Biden Administration to undermine its policies and programs,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is calling for “the creation of a commission or some similar agency to rein in media who deviate from the truth.” While the United States has relied on the First Amendment’s guarantee of freedom of speech for the last 230 years to prevent the government from censoring criticism of itself, Ocasio-Cortez contends that “the anarchy allowed by our Constitution is not up to the task of shepherding the American people toward the democratic socialism voters just endorsed...

    Famously, Google’s motto is “Don’t Be Evil.” Maybe “famously” isn’t the right word. "Hilariously” is more appropriate because Google is, in fact, an evil company. But it’s not just Google. Name the tech giant and they are pretty much working in ways that are detrimental, if not downright destructive, to the United States of America and the freedoms we hold dear. Google not only tracks every keystroke you make, but it also manipulates your worldview without you even knowing it. The biggest problem with Google is the monopoly control they have over internet searches. They control almost everything people see...

    On the heels of Forbes magazine editor Randall Lane threatening companies that hire Trump officials, we now have that periodical politically cleansing its own website of an article critical of their beloved social media monopolist that also engages in cracking down on free speech. Such was the case on Monday when Forbes deleted an article by frequent contributor, Jim Collins, that dared to strongly criticize Twitter which is now obviously a prohibited activity. Collins pulled no punches in his strong criticism of Twitter as you can see just from reading the title of his article, "Twitter Is The Worst Company...

    This week Dr. Thomas Lifson’s blog, American Thinker, announced that it was closing its comments section.It is news to almost nobody who reads American Thinker that a political witch hunt is underway. Parties in and out of government are looking for excuses to suppress and destroy voices that oppose the left.Because AT lacks the ability to monitor comments in real time, and because our position that comments are a forum, not something we publish, is being called into question, we can no longer publish comments.We take this action with a heavy heart.This was followed up by a statement by Deputy...
