  • Dan Bongino Responds to YouTube After They Suspend His Channel

    Today, YouTube suspended and demonetized the channel of conservative firebrand Dan Bongino. According to Bongino’s response to the YouTube representative handling the case, which we’ll cover in a moment, his channel was nuked for questioning the efficacy of masks. That seems especially egregious given the overwhelming amount of evidence that masks have been largely ineffective in suppressing the spread of COVID-19 in communities across the globe. Further, even many coronavirus hawks are now admitting they simply aren’t a solution against Omicron, though, various compilations of real-world data never really showed them to be effective prior either. Returning to Bongino, he...

    The Age of Intolerance: Cancel culture’s war on free speech“Political correctness is fascism pretending to be manners.”—George CarlinCancel culture—political correctness amped up on steroids, the self-righteousness of a narcissistic age, and a mass-marketed pseudo-morality that is little more than fascism disguised as tolerance—has shifted us into an Age of Intolerance, policed by techno-censors, social media bullies, and government watchdogs.Everything is now fair game for censorship if it can be construed as hateful, hurtful, bigoted or offensive provided that it runs counter to the established viewpoint.In this way, the most controversial issues of our day—race, religion, sex, sexuality, politics, science, health,...

    In an article last February headlined "Do Facebook, Twitter and YouTube censor conservatives? Claims 'not supported by the facts,' new research says," USA Today's Jessica Guynn wrote, "Despite repeated charges of anti-conservative bias from former President Donald Trump and other GOP critics, Facebook, Twitter and Google's YouTube are not slanted against right-leaning users, a new report out of New York University found." Guynn quoted Paul Barrett, deputy director of the NYU Stern Center for Business and Human Rights, who said: "Republicans, or more broadly conservatives, have been spreading a form of disinformation on how they're treated on social media. They...
  • Undersea Cable Connecting Norway With Arctic Satellite Station Has Been Mysteriously Severed

    The Drive ^ | 01 10 2022 | Thomas Newdick
    An undersea fiberoptic cable located between mainland Norway and the Svalbard archipelago in the Arctic Ocean has been put out of action in a still-mysterious incident. The outage on the subsea communications cable — the furthest north of its kind anywhere in the world — follows an incident last year in which different cables linking an undersea surveillance network off the Norwegian coast were severed, a story that we covered in detail at the time. The latest disruption involves one of two fiberoptic cables that enable communications between the Norwegian mainland and Norwegian-administered Svalbard that lies between the mainland and...

    "When you tear out a man's tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you're only telling the world that you fear what he might say."George R.R. Martin, A Clash of Kings (as said by Tyrion Lannister) The recent social media banishment of Dr. Robert Malone, a Covidstan dissident who likely presented more of a threat than our Big Tech overlords were willing to stomach thanks to his expertise and contribution to the development of mRNA technology, has again brought leftist censorship to the forefront of the public consciousness. Malone, who joined other prominent figures like feminist author Naomi Wolf,...
  • Inequality is driving protest against Kazakhstan’s authoritarian government

    theguardian ^ | Peter Leonard
    Why doesn’t the government listen to the complaints of the people until they come out in numbers on the streets? Kazakhstan’s government, like so many of its authoritarian counterparts, has chosen to wreck its feedback mechanism. It has parlayed considerable funds into a system known as the “state order”, funding media outlets – even those not belonging to the state – to convey news about the government’s policies with a cheery gloss. The few outlets trying to strike out and produce critical coverage face harassment and legal action. Some issues are absolutely off-limits. In October, one news outlet, Hola.kz, took...

    The new social media app, Gettr, touting itself as the ‘free speech’ alternative to Twitter has hired a global communications director with a long past of criticizing former President Donald J Trump, supporting Hillary Clinton as well as praising the liberal Barack Obama. .... Ebony Bowden, who is the global communications director of Gettr, is not the sort of conservative Americans are looking for as they seek a platform offering the elusive ‘free speech’ they were promised in their constitution.

    About a year ago I had a series of posts covering some of the more audacious deplatformings and cancelations then occurring in the realms of progressive orthodoxy enforcement. Examples of prominent victims of such conduct cited in my posts of February 22, 2021 and March 4, 2021 included: The Epoch Times (“demonetized” by Google, apparently as a result of relentless criticism of the Chinese Communist Party), Project Veritas (a constant irritant to the Left, shut out by Twitter), Catholic World Report (locked out by Twitter after calling President Biden’s nominee for Assistant Secretary of HHS “a biological man identifying as...

    Facebook recently locked up the account of "Heros of Liberty" only to later backtrack following the uproar, saying it was an "error." It was one of those "errors" that only happen conservatives. Facebook originally said that Heroes of Liberty – which has published books about Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett, former President Ronald Reagan and author Thomas Sowell – violated the company's rules against "Low Quality or Disruptive Content." Facebook originally locked the ads account on Dec. 23, and after Heroes of Liberty appealed the ruling, the company permanently disabled the account. A favorite of mine, @jewishdeplorable, was suspended...

    Did the Twitter punks who banned mRNA vaccine inventor and bona fide vaccine expert Robert W. Malone, M.D. just set off the Mother of all Backfires? Kind of looks like it, now that they've drawn so much public interest to the man that they've apparently broken the Google algorithm for censoring stories about him. It started like this: Shortly after Malone was banned on Twitter, he did an long interview with bigfoot podcaster, Joe Rogan, arguing that the disinformation and repressed information on COVID vaccines was something resembling mass psychosis. That term, and related ones, created widely divergent results between...

    People's opinions about Facebook are a mixed bag. For some, the social media site is an essential tool for keeping in touch with friends and family around the globe, interacting with common-interest groups and getting news. But others see Facebook in terms of privacy violations, political brawling, damaging misinformation and other content that could be harmful to teens. Now known as Meta, Facebook, as a company, has a new name but the same old problems. Whether you want to cancel your account for a clean slate in 2022 or any other reason, we'll tell you below what steps to follow....

    Do you use any of Google's apps? If so, you're probably being tracked. Even if you turned off location history on your Google account, you're not completely in the clear yet. While disabling that setting sounds like a one-and-done solution, some Google apps are still storing your location data. Just opening the Google Maps app or using Google search on any platform logs your approximate location with a time stamp. Following a 2018 investigation by the Associated Press, however, Google has made it easier to control what location and other data is saved, and what is deleted with features like...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton went online Wednesday to ask her followers to make a generous donation to the Clinton Foundation. Within seconds, social media users had torn her solicitation into sarcasm-laden shreds.“If you’re able to give, I hope you’ll consider supporting the life-changing work of the @ClintonFdn,” tweeted the failed 2016 Democratic Party presidential nominee. She retweeted a social media message from her eponymous foundation that read:Thanks for being part of our community in 2021. Together, we’re working to: Confront the climate crisis Improve public health Expand economic opportunity Inspire citizen engagement & service Join us and the...

    So I find out today I've been cancelled by "neighborly" NextDoor. This is absurd - and perhaps I was "reported" (snitched) by the last jerk I replied to last week. He was telling everyone how there aren't many of us (around here - indeed) and we're just posting alot (not true) and WE SHOULD REPORT THEM AND GET THEM BANNED. I gave him a piece of my mind in public. That goes for ND - and FB, and YT also.

    Without warning The Gateway Pundit was banned from Paypal earlier today. The Gateway Pundit is one of the top 250 websites in the United States today and had over 900,000,000 page views in 2021. We continue to grow despite constant attacks, smears, limited social media, and lawsuits.We have never violated any of Paypal’s bylaws — BUT we are conservative and Pro-Trump.They did not give us a reason for the banning but says, “it’s contractual right to cease doing business with you pursuant to PayPal’s User Agreement.”

    NewsBusters ^ | 12/29/2021 | Joseph Vazquez
    Only approved journalism, thank you! That appears to be Twitter’s logic behind suspending Just the News founder John Solomon for 12 hours. Solomon bashed the censorship as “outrageous and unfair.” Just the News released a statement Dec. 28 noting that Solomon was suspended from the leftist Big Tech platform “for sharing an article about the legal distinctions between Pfizer's fully approved and emergency use authorization (EUA) COVID-19 vaccines.” The distinction “could affect the legality of vaccine mandates.” Twitter slapped the article Solomon attempted to share with a “Warning: this link may be unsafe” label and propagandized that it “could lead...

    Social media posts circulating in Indonesia claim that eating fruit on an empty stomach will "cure cancer". The claim has circulated online in the Southeast Asian nation since at least 2013. It also recently recirculated in French-speaking African countries. But experts told AFP there is no scientific evidence to support the claim. "EATING FRUIT ON AN EMPTY STOMACH," reads this Indonesian-language Facebook post published on November 26, 2021. "Dr STEPHEN MAK treats terminal cancer patients in a unique way. Many of the patients recovered. 'This is my strategy to cure cancer. The success rate is 80 percent,' said Mak." "Cancer...

    A 39-year-old Utah man is now facing multiple charges after a college student who was missing for five days was found naked and covered in coal inside his home, reports say. Brent Brown, of Loa, has been charged with aggravated kidnapping, rape, object rape and obstruction of justice following the discovery of a Snow College student on Saturday, according to Fox 13. He is now being held without bail. The saga involving the student began on the night of Dec. 13, when she was last seen leaving her dorm building in Ephraim. The next day, her roommates reported her missing...

    Has YouTube stopped counting 'dislikes' on videos from the White House? And on videos from MSM featuring Joe Biden, or Jen Psaki, or anyone from the administration? The 'like' counts aren't very high, but there are no 'dislikes,' and clicking on 'dislike' on a WP video gave a message like 'your feedback is appreciated' or something like that.
