  • How the GOP lost control of Washington, and what comes next

    JUST THE NEWS ^ | Jan 8 2021 | John Solomon
    Now that Democrats are poised to control the White House, Senate and House, the traditional game of finger-pointing and recrimination will begin inside the GOP. The first instinct for politicians will be to assign blame, call names and jockey for position. But the 2020 election wasn't just an election, it was a political watershed in which the rules and strategy for winning were rewritten. The November election (and Tuesday’s Georgia curtain call) wasn't won and lost by the tactics, spending, individual players and messaging in the weeks before Nov. 3, according to interviews conducted with more than three dozen frontline...

    In times of social crises in America, big tech billionaires are often amongst the first to speak up—though how they do so varies. Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, unlike many of his peers, didn’t directly speak about the riot that erupted in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday afternoon. But the second-richest man in the world did make it clear that he was watching the news and indeed had a strong opinion about the surreal events that transpired at the U.S. Capitol. Late Wednesday night, after police had cleared protestors from the Capital ground to allow Congress to resume vote counting...

    A report released by the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society at a press conference on Wednesday alleged Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife made $419.5 million in contributions to non-profit organizations during the 2020 election cycle–$350 million to the “Safe Elections” Project of the Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL) and another $69.5 million to the Center for Election Innovation and Research–that, “improperly influence[d] the 2020 presidential election on behalf of one particular candidate and party.” “The 2020 presidential election witnessed an unprecedented and coordinated public-private partnership to improperly influence the 2020 presidential election on behalf...

    An Australian woman plunged about 260 feet to her death in front of her horrified husband and two sons after climbing over a safety barrier at a “perfect selfie” spot at a nature reserve, according to reports. Rosy Loomba, 38, of Craigieburn, was hiking with her family at the picturesque Grampians National Park in Victoria on Saturday afternoon when she decided to pose for a photo at the Boroka lookout near the village of Halls Gap, news.com.au reported. Police have issued many warnings about the dangers of the idyllic spot — famed on Instagram as the “perfect selfie” spot —...

    Pro-Trump activists have found a new online home to protest vote-counting less than 24 hours after Facebook shut down an organizing group of more than 365,000 members for breaking its policies around inciting violence. Thousands have flocked to such groups on MeWe, a social platform emphasizing users' rights and privacy that anti-lockdown protesters turned to earlier this year after they were kicked off Facebook. Nearly a dozen "Stop the Steal" groups have popped up since Thursday on MeWe, Business Insider has found, filled with posts claiming voter fraud and organizing state-by-state protests of election results. "Stop the Steal," a conspiracy...

    The Democrats are right now smelling a Joe Biden win, and they are probably right unless the Lord steps in and changes the current course. I hope He does, but if not, the Left is wasting no time in creating an enemies list, just like the Communist countries like to do, so they can enact their vengeance on all the ‘racist, misogynist and hate-filled Americans’ who voted for Donald Trump twice. Yeah, like all those black and Hispanic ‘racists’ in south Florida who voted for Trump in huge numbers, yeah those guys. “The people who cast the vote decide nothing....
  • Facebook Apologizes After Algorithm Blocks the Declaration of Independence as 'Hate Speech'

    PJ Media ^ | 07/07/2018 | Tyler O' Neil
    The Declaration of Independence was censored on Facebook this week. According to Facebook's algorithm, America's founding document contains "hate speech." Leading up to Independence Day, a newspaper in Texas posted sections of the Declaration of Independence on Facebook. The social media site's algorithm blocked a section of America's founding document, categorizing it as "hate speech." I'm glad to say Facebook later realized its mistake, apologized, and unblocked the post, but this incident reveals the problems with automated "hate speech" algorithms. The Vindicator started posting snippets of the Declaration on June 24, enabling readers to digest the whole thing in time...

    America's founding document might be too politically incorrect for Facebook, which flagged and removed a post consisting almost entirely of text from the Declaration of Independence. The excerpt, posted by a small community newspaper in Texas, apparently violated the social media site's policies against hate speech. Since June 24, the Liberty County Vindicator of Liberty County, Texas, has been sharing daily excerpts from the declaration in the run up to July Fourth. The idea was to encourage historical literacy among the Vindicator's readers. The first nine such posts of the project went up without incident. "But part 10," writes Vindicator...
  • Mark Levin: Facebook Censored My Page on Eve Before Election; ‘I Will Not Be Intimidated

    Popular conservative talk radio host Mark Levin was targeted by Facebook on the evening before the 2020 U.S. presidential election. “Facebook has now placed severe restrictions on my Facebook page on the eve before the election based on an extremely dishonest Politifact review of my link to an accurate story,” Levin tweeted November 2. He added: “I will not be intimidated or threatened by Facebook. You can also find my posts on Twitter and Parler.”  Attached to the tweet was a screenshot of the notification from Facebook explaining: “Your Page has reduced distribution and other restrictions because of repeated sharing of false...

    Gen Z Conservative ^ | 10/29/2020 | Gen Z
    Good ideas and bad ideas are free speech. That is a fact and Americans have believed in it for centuries. But now, posting about conservative ideas is not allowed. Because of social media censorship, The New York Post can no longer share its ideas on Twitter. I cannot. Thousands of other conservatives cannot. Who’s next? Breitbart? The Daily Wire? Fox News? Maybe even the Wall Street Journal? If no specific guidelines are given and every decision about who to censor is clouded in transparency, then how can we know who the social media censors will come for next?

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | October 28, 2020 | By Jim Hoft
    Today the CEO of Facebook testified before the Senate Commerce Committee. CEO Mark Zuckerberg claimed that Facebook does not censor or ban users based on their political beliefs. Obviously that is not true as Gateway Pundit has reported numerous times over the past three years. Last week we mentioned that Facebook removed a disabled senior citizen’s page without warning because she was conservative. Today we report another famous Facebook page has been banned for selling Trump merchandise.
  • Zuckerberg: FBI Warned Us to Be on the Lookout For a ‘Hack and Leak’ Op with ‘Trove of Docs’ Before the Election

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told Congress Wednesday that the FBI warned him months ago that Facebook should be on “heightened alert” about “hack and leak operations” that could be part of a foreign disinformation campaign in the final weeks before the 2020 election. The Facebook honcho made the remarks during a Senate Commerce Committee hearing where he testified alongside Google’s Sundar Pichai and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey. “One of the threats that the FBI has alerted our company and the public to was the possibility of a hack and leak operation in the days or weeks leading up to this election,”...
  • Google’s high-handed tactics with US regulators are backfiring

    NY Post. ^ | October 25, 2020 | Josh Kosman
    Google’s high-handed tactics with US regulators have come back to haunt it, with critics saying the tech giant set the stage for a dramatic showdown with the Department of Justice nearly a decade ago. The DOJ last week sued Google, accusing it of using anti-competitive tactics to maintain its search engine’s dominance over rivals. The focus of the suit — massive cash payments to smartphone makers like Apple and Samsung to make Google’s search engine the default option on their devices — is a fresh one. But industry sources say the Silicon Valley giant has nevertheless made itself vulnerable to...

    Voters in four battleground states have filed federal lawsuits to prevent the funneling of millions of dollars from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Google, and other tech firms through the Center for Tech and Civic Life which they allege is attempting to influence the outcome of the presidential election. According to a recent press release from the Amistad Project, voters in four key states have filed lawsuits in federal courts to block the alleged funneling of millions of dollars from Mark Zuckerberg, Google, and other Silicon Valley firms through the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) which they allege is...

    If the liberal media’s relative silence towards Facebook and Google’s Orwellian behavior this electoral cycle seemed deafening, perhaps it's because many outlets have received big loads of cash from them. A Washington Monthly report headlined “How Facebook and Google Buy Off the Press” said that by 2018, both Big Tech companies “were already among the largest funders of journalism in the world.” However, since then, both corporations “have gone on to promise a total of $700 million in funding for journalism, not counting other ‘undisclosed’ funds and in-kind contributions.” What makes this funding dubious, is that “[j]ust who is receiving...

    “As I began leaving the cult, I began writing of my experiences on Facebook. This was a mistake. My error was thinking that my social capital, my good record, would carry weight and that people would listen to my warnings. I was wrong, I keep using that word as well. If anything, my insider status was more of a threat. My therapist has not been able to help me. I have found solidarity with ex-Mormons. In one year, I have lost 90% of my community in Olympia. I have been shunned by activists, comedians and gamers. I have never had...
