  • Big Tech Slept With Communist China And Brought Venereal Censorship Back To America

    The Federalist ^ | 10/22/2020 | J.B. Shurk
    Big Tech slept with communist China and brought venereal censorship back home to America. This is why it’s always dangerous to treat one-party authoritarian dictatorships as if they’re as harmless as Canada. If you don’t appreciate the intrinsic threat of governments that ban freedom, then they will spread their despotism faster than you can cure their disease.Since Bill Clinton invited China into the World Trade Organization while pretending that the Tiananmen Square massacre never happened, and replaced American manufacturing jobs with China’s slave labor force, the stated foreign policy “dream” was for American society’s freedom and openness to rub...

    YORK, United Kingdom — Terrorism can be a very sensitive subject. A study finds even talking about this violent topic can bring out the worst in social media users. Researchers say users of Community Question Answering sites (CQAs) use more hate speech when searching for information about terrorism or terrorist attacks.CQAs are social media websites that allow users to post questions to other users, answer questions, and evaluate responses. Previous research has examined terrorism-related data from Facebook and Twitter, but this study by a team at the University of York was the first of its kind to examine trends on...

    A new Borat film (made by Sacha Baron Cohen) shows Rudy Giuliani in a compromising scene with an actress playing Borats daughter. Giuliani is seen laying on a bed, reaching into his pants as the actress, posing as a TV journalist is standing near the bed. Rudy Giuliani had just wrapped up a spoof interview with the fake conservative journalist when she suggested they have a drink and a chat in hotel suite. Unbeknownst to Rudy, the hotel suite was rigged with hidden cameras.
  • Suppression Is Not Working: Despite Widespread Censorship, the New York Post's Hunter Biden Story Has Dominated Social Media

    Townhall ^ | 10/21/2020 | Ellie Bufkin
    The Biden campaign and its surrogates have been dancing around the bombshell New York Post story about Hunter Biden for a full week now, dodging any questions related to it and hoping it would all just go away. Corporate media has played ball with the Biden campaign and largely refused to ask any questions about the story while failing to cover it almost entirely. They also got a big assist from Facebook and Twitter when both social media giants blocked users' ability to share the story. But the coordinated effort by Big Tech, the media, and Joe Biden has been...
  • China is Using Companies like Twitter to Interfere in the Election: Amazon, Facebook, and Twitters businesses are tethered to the Communist regime

    Last year, Amazon was forced to shut down its marketplace business in the Peoples Republic of China. Amazons defeat followed that of a long line of Big Tech players who had tried to make a go of it in China and failed miserably. Chinas economy is built to boost domestic businesses and foreign exports, with some needed imports, by companies linked to the Communist Party. And no matter how politically correct Amazon may try to be, it can never join that club. But Amazons business in China isnt done. To a large degree, Amazons business is China. Behind the smiling...
  • Justice Department charges Google with illegally maintaining search monopoly

    The Hill ^ | 10 20 2020 | Chris Mills Rodrigo
    The Department of Justice (DOJ) on Tuesday charged Google with illegally maintaining a monopoly on search and search advertising, teeing off a legal battle likely to take years and send shockwaves across Silicon Valley. The lawsuit, filed in District of Columbia federal court, is the result of a year-long investigation into concentrations of economic power in the online economy. The DOJ argues that Google has entered into exclusionary contracts with phone makers to preload its search engine onto devices using Alphabets Android operating system. Those contracts have allowed Google to maintain a monopoly while stifling competition and innovation, the suit...
  • Censoring the Biden story: How social media becomes state media

    The Hill ^ | October 17, 2020 | Jonathan Turley
    ....The tech companies' actions are an outrageous example of open censorship and bias. It shows how private companies effectively can become state media working for one party. This, of course, was more serious than deleting coughs, but it was based on the same excuse of "protecting" the public from distractions or distortions. Indeed, it was the realization of political and academic calls that have been building for years. Democratic leaders from Hillary Clinton to Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) have long demanded such private censorship from social media companies, despite objections from some of us in the free speech community; Joe...

    Socialist regimes typically dont excel at good government or economic stewardship, but they do tend to be experts at one thingpropaganda. Under regimes like the Soviet Union and countless other socialist monstrosities, citizens may not have been able to buy bread without waiting an entire day in line, but they could easily access a galaxy of reports via virtually any mediumprint, TV, radio, billboards, schoolbooks, etc.informing them of the glories of socialism in general and their own leaders in particular. Americans do not have to wait in line to buy bread yet, but make no mistake: In America today, the...

    A Supreme Court justice has urged his colleagues to tackle the issue of immunity for social media platforms. On Tuesday, Justice Clarence Thomas asked the court to consider scaling back Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. The section in question has served as a shield for social media companies, protecting them from content users upload to their platforms. When it comes to content posted on their sites, these companies have argued they are more like distributors of information than publishers. In most cases, the legislation grants immunity from legal prosecution, should a user post content that is deemed illegal...

    Twitter is now preventing the posting of the New York Post article on Hunter Bidens emails that indicate he arranged a meeting with a top Burisma adviser and his father Vice President Joe Biden in 2015. The article was published Wednesday morning. Earlier in the day Facebook announced it was limiting distribution of the Post article. Attempts to post the article to Twitter Wednesday afternoon are being blocked with a message saying, We cant complete this request because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful.

    The social media giants are stuck in a vise as the Trump campaign look for an edge by accusing the platforms of favoring the other side. A majority of Americans think social media companies have too much power and influence in politics, and roughly half think major technology companies should be regulated more than they are now, according to a new Pew Research Center survey. Overall, 72% of U.S. adults say social media companies have too much power and influence in politics today, according to the June 16-22 survey. Far fewer Americans believe the amount of political power these companies...

    The “private security guard” arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of a Patriot Prayer demonstrator in Denver is a far leftist with a track record of left-wing social media postings, Big League Politics can confirm.It’s not surprising that Dolloff is quick to resort to violence against conservatives when he views President Trump as a “fascist dictator.”Dolloff shared content from hysterical MSNBC commentator Keith Olbermann, who most recently called for Trump supporters to be “purged” from American society.Dolloff spoke of Donald Trump supporters with contempt.

    It has come to my attention that my recent TikToks and comments have sparked intense controversy and uproar. This was not my intent. I am appalled at the mainstream media’s efforts to exploit a teenage girl, which is negatively affecting my mental health. I am not the “whistleblower” of our time. I am simply a fifteen year-old with a following and bad luck when it comes to media coverage. Leave my family and me alone.When I said that President Trump was not “doing better”, I was, as many teenagers are, speculating and assuming. I have absolutely no “special” insight into...

    Facebook has deleted a post in which President Trump had claimed Covid-19 was "less lethal" than the flu. Mr Trump is at the White House after three days of hospital treatment having tested positive for the virus. He wrote the US had "learned to live with" flu season, "just like we are learning to live with Covid, in most populations far less lethal!!!" Twitter hid the same message behind a warning about "spreading misleading and potentially harmful information". Users have to click past the alert to read the tweet. "We remove incorrect information about the severity of Covid-19, and have...

    Editor's Note: The following is an excerpt fromThe Parasitic Mind: How Infectious Ideas Are Killing Common Sense. Many people in the West have a poor understanding of the concept of free speech. Whenever I mute or block someone on social media, a cacophony of fools will accuse me of being a free speech hypocrite forsilencing their voice. They do not understand that I have the right to walk away from their online taunts, insults, and idiocy. To do so is not restricting their speech but expressing my right to avoid listening to them. This is an obvious point, and yet...

    Conservatives and patriots could be forgiven for believing, in the heat of a presidential election, that overcoming the Biden-Harris ticket in 2020 will be enough to preserve the American Way for our children and grandchildren. But, unfortunately, that's a gross oversimplification of the threats to our liberty. Theres a more significant threat critiqued by Republicans and Democrats alike thats lurking in plain sight and thats Big Tech.Everyone knows that the "legacy media" crusty old journalistic powerhouses like The New York Times, The Washington Post, and the mainstream network news are running on fumes. Their readership and viewership...

I've #hashtagged with the best of 'em until I had an epiphany. What if each new, hot hashtag is a subterfuge? A small shiny object spinning to distract us from important news stories they'd rather we forgot so they can sweep them under the rug. Just ask yourself, "When was the last time I saw #EpsteinDidntKillHimself on a Tweet?". My point. Here are some important hashtags/news stories from 2019-2020 I forgot after other hashtags conveniently...

But news networks and election officials aren't calling the swing states, as this years record numbers of mail-in and absentee ballots have yet to be fully counted. Mr. Trump, leading in the popular vote, decides hes seen enough. He takes to his social media platforms and declares that he has won re-election and will accept no other result. He tells his tens of millions of followers that the Democrats and the press will try to change the result and steal the election. The door to unrest and constitutional crisis...
