  • New Mexico AG Raúl Torrez sues Meta over child exploitation, exposing perverts' use of pizza code.

    12/08/2023 7:19:50 PM PST · by davikkm · 16 replies
    In a shocking revelation, New Mexico Attorney General Raúl Torrez's letter outlines the distressing findings of an undercover investigation into Meta's platforms. The investigation involved the creation of decoy accounts representing children aged 14 and younger, uncovering disturbing trends: Meta's platforms proactively directed sexually explicit content to underage users, even when the child showed no interest in such material. The platforms enabled adults to easily find, contact, and coerce children into providing explicit images or participating in pornographic videos. The investigation revealed that Meta's platforms recommended children to join unmoderated Facebook groups facilitating commercial sex and allowed the sharing and...

    On Thursday, New Mexico Attorney General Raúl Torrez launched a major legal offensive in an attempt to address the online risks faced by minors. The lawsuit targeted Meta Platforms, Inc., its CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and associated entities such as Instagram, LLC and Facebook Holdings, LLC. This bold action seeks to prevent the exploitation of children on social media platforms. “Our investigation into Meta’s social media platforms demonstrates that they are not safe spaces for children but rather prime locations for predators to trade child pornography and solicit minors for sex,” Attorney General Torrez said in a statement. “As a career...

    Author and journalist Michael Shellenberger has said that “U.S. and U.K. military contractors” have used “sophisticated psychological operations and disinformation tactics… against the American people” in sworn testimony in the U.S. House of Representatives. In a hearing of the Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government chaired by Jim Jordan (R-OH) on suppression of free speech by the government, Shellenberger presented the information he received from a whistleblower about the origins of the so-called “Censorship Industrial complex.” Shellenberger, one of the “Twitter Files” authors, coined the phrase “Censorship Industrial Complex” to describe the network of government and private entities...

    As the Biden administration pressured Big Tech companies to censor Americans’ speech during the COVID vaccine rollout, Google’s YouTube went along with the White House’s requests before Facebook was pressured to follow suit, according to documents shared with House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan and obtained by The Daily Wire. In an April 18, 2021, email, Facebook President for Global Affairs Nick Clegg expressed concern after Andy Slavitt, a senior White House advisor, told him that Facebook was “lagging behind” as YouTube “made significant advances to remove content leading to vaccine hesitancy.” “Just got off hour long call with Andy Slavitt,”...

    A whistleblower has come forward with an explosive new trove of documents, rivaling or exceeding the Twitter Files and Facebook Files in scale and importance. They describe the activities of an “anti-disinformation” group called the Cyber Threat Intelligence League, or CTIL, that officially began as the volunteer project of data scientists and defense and intelligence veterans but whose tactics over time appear to have been absorbed into multiple official projects, including those of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The CTI League documents offer the missing link answers to key questions not addressed in the Twitter Files and Facebook Files....

    The social media accounts of two-time Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein have been suspended by Meta, which owns and controls Instagram and Facebook. Stein, who has already announced her 2024 bid for the US presidency, said on Thursday on X, formerly known as Twitter, that after refusing to help her regain access to her Instagram account, Meta disabled her new account, claiming it violated rules on "account integrity & authentic identity". Meta informed Stein on Wednesday that no one could see or find her account, and she cannot use it. Also, the US Big Tech firm decided to permanently...

    Tantrum City, a rage room that opened in April 2021 in North Syracuse, has closed its doors. “We will be closing our doors effective immediately due to unforeseen circumstances. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you,” Tantrum City posted on its Facebook page on Wednesday. The business was located on the corner of Taft Road and Route 11, and was previously home to ShamROCK’s Rock and Roll Irish Pub. Tantrum City provided weapons (bats, crowbars, golf clubs and sledgehammers) and items to smash, like electronics, glassware, knick-knacks and car parts to release steam and throw adult temper tantrums....

    I have a problem. The idiot morons at Facebook insist that I enable something called Facebook Protect. They've locked my account. They insist on two-factor verification from third parties like Google Verify or Duo. They want me to get a code, then come back to FB and input it. These sites are designed to put an app on your phone. I don't have a smartphone (by choice) and I cannot figure out how the heck to get this done on my desktop.

    A growing number of U.S. adults regularly get their news from TikTok, with almost a third of adults between 18 and 29 relying on the video-sharing platform, according to a survey from the Pew Research Center—even as fewer people get news from social media sites like X and Facebook.

Fifteen percent of U.S. adults between the ages of 30 and...

    Far-left Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is reportedly a member of a private Facebook group which features members who are openly sympathetic to Hamas terrorists, according to a report from Fox News Digital. According to the report, Tlaib is a member of the closed group Palestinian American Congress. Screenshots reveal there to be about 15,038 members, and non-members are unable to view the group. Tlaib, however, has reportedly been a member of this group for six years, per screenshots from Fox News Digital, which gained access to the page.

    And so it begins. In fact, it hardly ever stops – another election cycle in well on its way in the US. But what has emerged these last few years, and what continues to crop up the closer the election day gets, is the role of the most influential social platforms/tech companies.Pressure on them is sometimes public, but mostly not, as the Twitter Files have taught us; and it is with this in mind that various announcements about combating “election disinformation” coming from Big Tech should be viewed.Although, one can never discount the possibility that some – say, Microsoft –...

    Young people attending a New York City anti-Israel rally have admitted that they learned to hate Israel by watching pro-Palestinian videos on Chinese-owned app TikTok and Mark Zuckerbeg’s Instagram. More than a dozen young protesters who skipped school to join an anti-Israel rally in Manhattan on Thursday told the New York Post that their opinions about the Israel-Hamas war were shaped mainly by China’s TikTok and Facebook-owned Instagram, as well as their teachers.

    An alleged campaign finance violation could ensnare Secretary of State Antony Blinken and 51 former senior intelligence officials who asserted without evidence in 2020 that the Hunter Biden laptop was Russian disinformation. America First Legal, a conservative organization run by former Donald Trump White House aide Stephen Miller, filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission in late October, alleging a "coordinated communication" and an unreported in-kind contribution to the Joe Biden presidential campaign and related entities, in violation of federal law. "[The] evidence suggests that the respondents failed to disclose coordinated expenditures constituting in-kind donations with respect to the...

    SAN FRANCISCO, CA — Elon Musk has generously offered to give Mark Zuckerberg $1 billion to simply change Facebook's name to "Faceboob." "Think of how much happier everyone will be logging onto 'Faceboob'," said Mr. Musk. "I already jotted down some great ideas for the new site logo. They're pretty good, if I do say so myself. Just trying to do a little good for humanity." The offer comes on the heels of a similar proposition Musk made to the head of Wikipedia this week to change the name of the online reference site to something quite clever that...
  • Big Tech's Election Interference Has Gone Too Far

    The New York Post's breaking news of emails purporting to show Hunter Biden scheming to make money off the family name has created a social media firestorm. Twitter began blocking users from sharing it almost instantly. Facebook didn't block the story outright, but they did announce almost immediately that they were "reducing its distribution on our platform." Even for the most sober observer, it sure seems like the social media platforms are interfering with the free flow of information relevant to our election. This is all the more so when you consider that stories critical of President Donald Trump, such...

    One of Facebook’s corporate media “fact checkers” has falsely suggested that no Israeli civilians were harmed when Hamas launched a terror attack at a music festival earlier this month. On October 7, Hamas terrorists used paragliders to fly into a music festival in Israel, slaughtering hundreds of innocent concertgoers, mostly young people and families. The terrorists also raped, injured, and kidnapped many more, as Slay News reported. Eyewitnesses recalled horrific scenes of terrorists murdering innocent people as they ran for their lives, in some cases, pulling them from their vehicles as they fled and shooting them at point-blank range. The...
