    Trump’s Silenced Majority – The Voiceless, Voteless, And Canceled Governed No Longer Consent Posted on January 16, 2021 by TMH By: Daniel John Sobieski The violent storming of the Capitol cannot be condoned but it must be explained as so many posturing Trump critics and haters are unwilling to do. Just what do you expect will happen when 75 million Americans are told their votes don’t matter and can be stolen without consequence or concern, that their voices don’t matter and can be silenced at will and that now they must be punished for supporting the candidate of their choice...

    The same image had been censored two years ago, before the warning label was removed.December 10, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Facebook has once again censored an image of Santa Claus kneeling before the infant Jesus in a manger. Two years ago Facebook first censored the now famous image, identifying it as ‘violent’ or ‘graphic’ content. After a December 2018 LifeSiteNews story about the censoring went viral, Facebook relented, removed the warning, and uncovered the painting. Last week, LifeSiteNews was made aware that Facebook had once again hidden the touching illustration, slapping the tender image of Santa on one knee and head...

  • Big Tech’s Bias Against Conservatives Continues

    10/24/2020 3:29:38 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 6 replies ^ | October 24, 2020 | Kay Coles James
    Twitter and Facebook quickly backpedaled after suppressing a New York Post story damaging to former Vice President Joe Biden, but that doesn’t erase the fact that just weeks before an election, the social media platforms continue to enforce their rules differently for those with whom they disagree politically. When the Post published a story that Biden’s son Hunter allegedly made money from providing access to his father when he was vice president, it seemed like Twitter and Facebook all of a sudden “got religion,” as we say in the South. The platforms said they spiked the story because it contained...

    As the American right continues to sort through its identity crisis, four years after the earth-shattering election of a heterodox Republican Party presidential standard-bearer, battle lines are hardening on the issue of Big Tech's hectoring censorship and its monopolistic corporate misbehavior. The increasing brazenness with which the various Big Tech behemoths distort their search algorithms to hide conservative viewpoints, undermine conservatives through "shadow banning" and weaponize the sanctimonious and self-serving "fact-checking" cottage industry to suppress conservative voices has long been clear to those of us who, to use the parlance of the day, are "very online." The 2017 dismissal of...

    Confronted with an onslaught of social media posts filled with misinformation and harmful content, Facebook said Tuesday it has begun to rely on artificial intelligence to boost its efforts to evaluate whether posts violate its policies and should be labeled or removed. AI is being used to rank content on its platforms involving self-harm, sexual exploitation, and hate speech. However, content will still be evaluated by human moderators, regardless of whether the offending posts are reported by users or detected by the company’s proactive systems. Guy Rosen, Facebook’s vice president of integrity, told reporters on a call Tuesday that the...

    Three night in a row, peaceful protests over the in-custody death of George Floyd quickly turned violent, with multiple building structures set ablaze, widespread looting, and continued rioting. Many of the so-called protesters were just looters that wanted to take benefit from the situation. What is even more important the protest made more racial tension when the focus should be placed on police brutality! While the mainstream media made the video go viral, another video where black cop is chocking another man was not reported by anyone. The footage was first seen on Friday. A Jackson police officer, captured by...

    If Twitter wants to editorialize and 'factcheck' President TrumpÂ’s tweets with disclaimers, then it should be treated like any other publisher. TwitterÂ’s decision this week to append a disclaimer to President TrumpÂ’s tweets about the risks of mail-in ballot fraud should be enough, at long last, for us to dispense with the fiction that Twitter is nothing more than a neutral platform.ItÂ’s not, it never has been, and itÂ’s time to stop pretending otherwise.Set aside the relative merits of TrumpÂ’s comments and the entire debate about whether mass voting by mail is a good idea, because thatÂ’s not whatÂ’s important...

During Thursday's daily news briefing, Murphy stated that anyone unhappy with Asaro-Angelo's efforts should "go to another state." Is he serious?!

    Facebook's COVID-Protest Ban Renews Censorship Concerns COMMENTARY . By Kalev Leetaru April 22, 2020 (AP Photo/Paul Sancya) Facebook’s growing power over the public square is back in the news this week as the company announced it is banning the promotion of certain kinds of back-to-work protest events on its platform. While the company’s previous bans have largely focused on blocking digital speech it finds objectionable, the move to thwart protests in the physical world underscores just how central the social media giant has become to the expression of democracy and just how much power it now wields over even our...
