  • Fact-Blockers

    I've reported how Facebook censors me. Now I've learned that they also censor environmentalist Michael Shellenberger, statistician Bjorn Lomborg and former New York Times columnist John Tierney. Facebook's "fact-checkers" claim we spread "misinformation." In my new video, Tierney argues that the "people guilty of spreading misinformation are Facebook and its fact-checkers." He's right. Facebook doesn't do its censoring alone. It partners with groups approved by something called the Poynter Institute, a group that claims "a commitment to nonpartisanship." But Poynter isn't nonpartisan. It promotes progressive jargon like "decolonize the media," and it praises left-leaning journalists. Once they even proposed blacklisting...
  • Antifa member who took axe to senate office given probation and his axe back

    We have been discussing the continued incarceration of many individuals for their participation in the Jan. 6th riot. Despite claims that the riot was an insurrection, the vast majority of defendants have been given relatively minor charges. Nevertheless, the Justice Department has insisted on holding many without bail and some have received longer sentences, like Jacob Chansley (aka “QAnon Shaman”) who was given a 41-month sentence for “obstructing a federal proceeding.” Thomas “Tas” Alexander Starks, 31, of Lisbon, N.D., faced a strikingly different approach by the Justice Department. The self-avowed Antifa member took an axe to the office of Sen....

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Bernalillo County District Attorney Raúl Torrez says Facebook has repeatedly refused to turn over account information pertaining to members of the New Mexico Civil Guard.The self-declared militia started showing up to Albuquerque protests last summer. Massive protests were held across the country after George Floyd's murder in Minneapolis. The New Mexico Civil Guard claimed they were keeping the peace at local protests.In July 2020, Torrez filed a civil lawsuit against the New Mexico Civil Guard. He's hoping to get a ruling from a judge that will ban milita groups from organizing and operating in New Mexico.As part...

    OK, so my fake identity on FascistBook has become suspect after posting to some forums with some conservative ideas. Someone reported me, obviously, because I “identify” as the name of a famous conservative activist. FB is trying to confirm my identity by asking me to upload an official picture I.D. It’s a throwaway account, so no skin off my nose. I use it for guerrilla warfare of ideas at various leftist websites. A new one is easily created. But I still want to make waves as long as it’s possible. Any ideas? My first response idea is to upload a...

    After more than a week sleeping in a frigid encampment on the border between Belarus and Poland, and an abortive foray across the frontier repelled by pepper spray and police batons, Mohammad Faraj gave up this month and retreated to a warm hotel in Minsk, capital of Belarus. Soon after, however, he watched with surprise and excitement a video report on Facebook claiming that Poland was about to open its border and urging all those who wanted to enter the European Union to gather at a gas station near the encampment that the migrants had nicknamed “the jungle.” Mr. Faraj,...

    Australia on Friday called for governments around the world to agree on "rules of the road" to fight the spread of misinformation and state-backed disinformation online. Foreign Minister Marise Payne said blocs like the Quad group - the United States, India, Japan and Australia - and global bodies like the United Nations were already working to strike a balance between harmful content and free expression online. But time was running out to agree on rules of what was permissable. "We should be starting yesterday," Payne told a panel at the Sydney Dialogue virtual event alongside Facebook Inc's global affairs boss.

    President Joe Biden’s choice to be comptroller of the currency at the Treasury Department, Saule Omarova, apparently joined a Facebook group in 2019 called “Marxist Analysis and Policy.” Fox News reported that in late October, the American Accountability Foundation uncovered a post from 2019 in which a member of the Marxist page posted, “Let’s welcome our newest members: Saule Omarova.” The post connects to a Facebook account that appears to have a profile picture of the Biden nominee. The profile picture has 85 public likes and 14 public comments, which are apparently from people close to Omarova, including a University...

    Hundreds of people in Egypt have been stung by scorpions in recent days and hospitals are stocking anti-venom to treat them, due to bad weather that's forced the creatures from their normal habitats and closer to humans. Government officials said more than 500 people have been stung over the past three days in southern Egypt. The governor of Aswan detailed the injuries in a Facebook post a few days ago. The inclement weather has included dust storms, heavy rains, hail and flooding. It has displaced the scorpions in their natural environments. The bad weather has also damaged mud-brick houses, uprooted...

    Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost announced on Monday that he has filed a lawsuit against Facebook, claiming the company misled and deceived investors in an effort to boost the price of its stock. Yost, a Republican, filed the lawsuit on behalf of the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System (OPERS), which has invested millions in Facebook stock. Also named as defendants are Facebook executives Mark Zuckerberg, David M. Wehner, and Nick Clegg. The multi-pronged lawsuit alleges that “from April 29 through Oct. 21, 2021 Facebook and its senior executives violated federal securities laws by purposely misleading the public about the negative...

    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...
  • 'Who's checking the fact checkers?' PolitiFact and Facebook are slammed for wrongly claiming that Kyle Rittenhouse couldn't legally carry his AR-15 - after judge dropped charge and ruled he WAS within the law

    PolitiFact and Facebook have been slammed for an August 2020 'fact check' that claimed it was false to say it was 'perfectly legal' for Kyle Rittenhouse to carry his AR-15 rifle at the Kenosha riot, after a judge tossed out his firearms possession charge on Monday. The judge in the Rittenhouse case yesterday threw out the gun possession charge, ruling that the law is written in such a confusing way that it allows for the interpretation that 17-year-olds can carry guns if those gun barrels are shorter than 16 inches. 'I‘m still trying to figure out what it says, what...

    Original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley has shared an unfounded conspiracy theory that the deaths at a Travis Scott concert earlier in the month were part of a satanic ritual. The rapper November 5 set at his Astroworld event left nine people dead and several more fighting for their lives. Since then, dozens of lawsuits have been filed and a slew of questions remain unanswered about what went wrong. On Friday (November 12), Ace took to his Facebook to share a photo of what appears to be his right foot covered in a sock emblazoned with the words "Not Today Satan",...

    Michigan's attorney general owned up to drinking too much before last month's widely-anticipated college football game between in-state rivals Michigan and Michigan State in a self deprecating Facebook post that she has dubbed 'Tailgate-gate.' Nessel, a Democrat, said she had two Bloody Marys on an empty stomach while attending a tailgate party before Michigan State rallied to defeat Michigan 37-33 in a battle of then-undefeated Big 10 teams. She joked that 'as long as you put enough vegetables in them, it's practically a salad.'

    A mother has spoken of her horror after her family photos were used by Cleo Smith's alleged abductor to create multiple fake Facebook profiles. Terence Darrell Kelly, 36, has been charged with abducting little Cleo from her family tent near Carnarvon on October 16 and keeping her captive in his derelict home in the town for 18 days. Since his arrest for the alleged kidnapping, a web of Facebook accounts used by the Bratz doll collector have surfaced including ones pretending to be a teenage girl and a mother.
