  • America’s “War on Terror” Is Going to Morph into the “War on Domestic Terror” (Vanity)

    With everything that has happened over the last four years, and especially since the November election, I think most FReepers understand where our country is heading. For those who don’t yet fully understand, I believe they will be coming up the awareness curve pretty quickly as the Left continues to implement their plans to fundamentally transform America. I believe a key priority of the Left will be to fundamentally transform the focus of America’s “War on Terror.” America’s original "War on Terror" commencing in September 2001, focused the American people to rally to defend against and/or defeat "radical Islam." Of...

    “The ideal set up by the Party was something huge, terrible, and glittering... all thinking the same thoughts and shouting the same slogans, perpetually working, fighting, triumphing, persecuting - three hundred million people all with the same face.” That was a quote from George Orwell’s seminal work 1984 - a masterpiece that describes life in a totalitarian state that demands blind obedience. The ‘Party’ controlled everything - the economy, daily life, and even the truth. In Orwell’s 1984, “the heresy of heresies was common sense.” “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been...

    DORSEY: “You should always feel free to express yourself in whatever format manifestation feels right. We do intend to do the full retro as I said in my note, it is going to take some time. And then the other thing, just to close out a little bit. We know, we are focused on one account right now. But this is going to be much bigger than just one account, and it’s going to go on for much longer than just this day, this week. And the next few weeks and go on beyond the inauguration. We have to expect...

    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced Wednesday that he has issued civil investigative demands (CIDs) to Facebook, Twitter, Google, Amazon Web Services, and Apple following the Big Tech monopolies’ most recent wave of politically motivated crackdowns on President Donald Trump and his supporters. In a statement released by Paxton’s office, the Texas AG stated that the CIDs issued this week “are asking the companies for their policies and practices regarding content moderation and, more specifically, for information related to Parler, a social media application recently terminated or blocked by Google, Amazon, and Apple.” “First Amendment rights and transparency must be...

    I think there's a bit of confusion over the meaning of the First Amendment. Twitter has every right to decide who uses its platform. So does Facebook. And Google. Whoever pays the mortgage gets to decide the rules. I own a broadcast media company that includes a news-talk radio station and two prominent websites. And just like Twitter and Facebook, I get to decide who has a voice on my platforms. Unlike Big Tech, I actually cherish free speech. I believe in spirited debate. And I believe in the free exchange of ideas. That's why this rock-solid constitutionalist conservative...

But also, we need to think much longer term around how these dynamics play out over time. I don't believe this is going away anytime soon.” Dorsey: “You know, the U.S....

    Aa a coinage goes, deep tech is superior to the Big-Tech term. It better captures the deforming power and tentacular reach into state and civil society of the high-tech monopolists. That reach notwithstanding, many libertarian-minded and “small-government conservatives” (a contradiction in terms, considering the national debt is $28 trillion) have been stalwart defenders of the rights of Deep Tech to deploy unprovoked financial force to kneecap those users who don’t conform to the tech oligarchy’s monolithic image of the Ideal Citizen.David French, writer at the Dispatch—and one of the many political dwarfs tossed periodically at Donald Trump by Never Trumpsters...

    It wasn't just Donald Trump's detractors who felt a sudden sense of relief when they heard that Twitter was blocking his feed after the storming of the Capitol and the disruption of the reading of the Electoral College results on Jan. 6. While President Trump's exact words to the crowd on the Ellipse didn't constitute a criminal incitement, they were uttered with a reckless disregard for the possibility that they'd provoke violence, which any reasonable person could find impeachable. But a moment's reflection should have left any believer in free speech feeling queasy about a private firm censoring the president...

    A Tennessee high school principal is on administrative leave after he told students they should be alarmed by the recent crackdown on free speech on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Barton Thorne, the principal of Cordova High School, told students during morning announcements that they needed to be aware of the censorship happening on social media. “I’m not going to tell you what to think, I just want to help you think,” he told students on a video that was later posted on YouTube. “This isn’t about Trump,” he said. “This is about speech.” Principal Thorne asked the...

    January 14, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Corporate authoritarianism has come to America in the form of a secular technocracy where liberal businesses, backed by the uni-party Deep State, get to decide what is and isn’t acceptable political dialogue. This is an all-out assault not only on our Constitutional freedoms, but on conservative, Christian supporters of President Trump. The collective purging of the president (and others) from social media last week was a concerted effort meant to destroy him and the populist, nationalist movement he led. It was intended to send a message to any future political candidate who wants to run...

    In just over two years, suppression of political speech online has grown from Google's purge of conservative employees and the subsequent collusion between tech companies to simultaneously ban commentator Alex Jones from their platforms, to the point where these companies are emboldened not only to ban the president of the United States from social media, but official campaign websites, financial services – and even his email companies are refusing service. In the past week, Twitter removed over 70,000 conservative accounts, and Facebook suspended former Texas congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul after he wrote a column criticizing tech censorship.

    Twitter explained why it decided to permanently ban President Donald Trump: "After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them -- specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter -- we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence." Trump gave a long, raucous speech, in which he claimed election fraud, in front of supporters an hour before a mob stormed the Capitol building on Jan. 6. This horrific siege took place during a joint session of Congress. After the violent disruption, former Vice...

    Parler’s gone for now, the victim of a conspiracy to silence, but it will return. The fascists can try, but they can’t shut us up forever. Truth flows like water around obstacles. The Twitbookgram decided to start playing whack-a-prole to bonk unapproved ideas on the noggin and pretty soon too many heads will be popping up out of too many new holes. They will pop up on Gab, or Clouthub, or Dave Rubin’s Locals.com.

    House Democrats have drafted an article of impeachment that accuses President Trump of “incitement to insurrection.” Acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin said Thursday that his office is “looking at all actors here and anyone that had a role” in the Capitol riot. Some reporters have construed that as including Mr. Trump. The president didn’t commit incitement or any other crime. I should know. As a Washington prosecutor I earned the nickname “protester prosecutor” from the antiwar group CodePink. In one trial, I convicted 31 protesters who disrupted congressional traffic by obstructing the Capitol Crypt. In another, I convicted a CodePink...

    Twitter claims that it has made an “error” in blacklisting the Students for Trump Twitter account on Wednesday. The suspension of the Pro-Trump student group has been reversed. “We use a combination of technology and human review to surface harmful content proactively on the service,” said a Twitter spokesperson in a statement to the Washington Times. “In this case, the account you referenced was flagged by our automated systems in error,” the spokesperson added. “This has been reversed, and access to the account has been reinstated.” On Wednesday, Students for Trump co-chair Ryan Fournier announced that the Students for Trump...

The most obvious evidence, of course... is the most obvious... yet never mentioned. Free and fair elections, to exist, require we have freedom of the press, and freedom of speech. Today, we have neither. The...
