There Is No Future For Dissidents on Social Media

By banning discussion of me (unless it’s to denounce me) Mark Zuckerberg is literally mimicking the tactics used against Samizdat dissidents during the Soviet dictatorship.

The Communist Chinese-style social credit system is right around the corner.

A cashless society where your grocery purchase gets declined because some soy boy in Silicon Valley got offended by your tweets.

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE: “TRUMP CONTINUES OBAMA’S WAR ON WHISTLEBLOWERS, ARRESTS ANOTHER ALLEGED INTERCEPT SOURCE”

“New drone whistleblower at The Intercept,” tweeted the outspoken CIA whistleblower John Kiriakou in October 2015. “For God’s sake don’t let @MatthewACole learn his identity.”

Intercept investigative reporter Matthew Cole has been tied both to Kiriakou’s discovery and prosecution and to that of Reality Winner, who leaked classified documents to The Intercept in 2017. Kiriakou’s comment came after the first in a series of articles was published in The Intercept titled “The Drone Papers” by Jeremy Scahill on October 15, 2015. Today, the alleged source of this report has been arrested, the third alleged Intercept source to have been prosecuted by the Trump administration.

Emmanuel Macron, Facebook’s Zuckerberg Will Meet To Clamp Down On HATE SPEECH

France has formulated draft legislation scheduled to hit Parliament's agenda in the coming months to compel platforms like Google, Facebook and Twitter to remove hateful content within 24 hours or face heavy fines.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is scheduled to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris on Friday for talks amid increasing pressure on the social media giant to honour pledges to tackle hate speech and misinformation online.

The visit comes against the backdrop of regulators worldwide urging social media platforms to shoulder more responsibility for what their users post.

Venezuela coup enthusiast Rubio says China is secretly propping up Maduro

Neocon US Senator and Venezuela regime change crusader Marco Rubio claims China is secretly backing President Nicolas Maduro by 'shutting down the internet' to thwart Washington-backed opposition leader Juan Guaido.
The Chinese are "single-handedly controlling the defensive cyber operations shutting down the internet," Rubio told Breitbart in an interview published Thursday, claiming that thanks to Beijing, opposition leader Juan Guaidó has "no access to the internet. Any time he tries to speak or communicate on social media, they shut down the internet. Literally, every time he holds a rally, they shut down the internet."

Well, now he knows how the Independent Media feels about Facebook, Google, et. al.'s treatment of us!

Top UK Journalist Craig Murray Blocked by Facebook After Criticising Israel

On April 23rd, the great independent investigative journalist, Craig Murray — a former British diplomat — headlined at his blog, “Condemned By Their Own Words”, and he posted there the translated-to-English transcript (excerpted below) to this Israeli radio Hebrew broadcast on April 21st, in which an Israeli Brigadier-General, named Fogel, explained why Israel’s troops are doing the right thing to shoot and even to kill Gazans who come (an unspecified) too close to the wall which separates Israel from Gaza:

'Zuckerberg's power is unprecedented and un-American': Facebook CO-FOUNDER says the social network's boss is too powerful and the government should break up 'dangerous' tech giant

Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes has called for federal regulators to break up the company, saying that CEO Mark Zuckerberg is too powerful and that the company is an effective monopoly.

'It is time to break up Facebook,' Hughes, who was Zuckerberg's Harvard roommate, wrote in a searing op-ed for the New York Times on Thursday. 'Mark's power is unprecedented and un-American.'

Hughes, 35, helped build Facebook from the beginning, and was a key creator in products like the social network's New Feed. He left the company in 2007 to join Barack Obama's first presidential campaign, and says he liquidated his Facebook stock in 2012.

Facebook: We're Not A Monopoly, We're "A Successful American Company"

Congress should step in with more stringent regulations for tech companies, something Zuckerberg has repeatedly insisted he would support (probably because regulation would allow politicians to feel like they've accomplished something while leaving Zuckerberg to run his empire).

Laura Loomer protests outside Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s house after being banned from platform

“…I have been silenced I can’t even get my message out there.”

Journalist turned activist Laura Loomer protested Twitter’s recent ban of her and other conservatives from outside the platform CEO’s California residence early Wednesday morning in an attempt to raise awareness to social media bias.

Needless to say, the fiery female journalist dropped off a few presents for Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey during her visit including a copy of her lawsuit against the social media giant.

Loomer told police who showed up to her demonstration that she wanted to raise awareness that social media platforms are working with terrorist organizations.

Facebook Banning Right-Wingers for Political 'Heresy' – Cyber Expert

Facebook has recently banned a number of prominent right-wing figures as "dangerous individuals", with the recent restrictions applying on Instagram as well. Speaking to Sputnik, a cyber security analyst and former US congressional candidate shed light on what appears to be political bias on the part of the Silicon Valley giants.

On 3 May, US President Donald Trump directed criticism at tech giants in Silicon Valley for banning right-wing users and media pundits.

Twitter suspends more conservative and pro-Trump accounts prompting new accusations of censorship

Twitter has suddenly suspended a slew of pro-Trump accounts including the ‘Magaphobia’ account, which was set up by conservative commentator Jack Posobiec to “track violence against Trump supporters.”

The @Magaphobia account had defined the word as “an irrational, unfounded fear of Donald Trump or his supporters” or bigotry towards those who voted for him.

The West – Full Spectrum Dementia: Bogus News Media, Corruption of Academic Research, Irrational Lies Fed into the Educational System

Journalism has never been free of propaganda. News has always been produced and marketed like any other commodity, satisfying and shaping consumers’ opinions, loyalties and taste. Over the last thirty years, the US elites and their allies have effectively eliminated conventional journalism in favor of propaganda and counter-propaganda serving their relentless war on the majority world. Integral to that war in recent years has been the purposeful manipulation of social media so as to usurp and compromise any remnants of orthodox news reporting.

CNN Contributor Insanely Claims Unborn Babies Aren’t Even Human

On CNN’s “Primetime with Chris Cuomo” on Monday night, a segment on the legality of state-level fetal heartbeat bills quickly spiraled into a chaotic debate about whether unborn children should be considered human beings. CNN contributor and erstwhile New York City Democratic politician Christine Quinn said, “When a woman is pregnant, that is not a human being inside of her.”

When guest Rick Santorum asked CNN Host Chris Cuomo if he disagreed “that at the moment of conception that a child is human and alive?” Cumono replied that means it’s “viable.” When Santorum asked, “Is it biologically a human life?” Quinn shouted, “No!”

DC-area radio station told to register as Russian agent

CNN Falsely Claims Venezuela’s Guaido Was Elected President in January

Continuing to try to advance the US narrative that Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido is the “duly elected” president, CNN went to the trouble on Sunday afternoon of inventing an entire election to base this around.

In the CNN report, they declared “pressure is mounting on Maduro to step down, following elections in January in which voters chose opposition leader Juan Guaido over him for president.” There was no election in January.

In reality, Venezuela’s presidential election was held on May 20, 2018. The opposition boycotted the vote, Maduro won with 67.8% of the vote, while Guaido did not participate at all.

Israel Again Bombs Gaza - But Is It "In Response"?

Most readers do not read further than the headline and maybe the first paragraph. Their impression will understandably be that "militants in Gaza" started the fight and that the Zionists "responded". But that is far from the truth.

One has to read down to the fifteenth paragraph to learn that those 'facts' are probably false:

The Israeli military reported on Friday that two soldiers were lightly wounded in a shooting incident along its border with Gaza. In response, Israel struck sites belonging to the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’s military wing, killing two fighters.
Also on Friday, two Palestinian protesters were killed taking part in ongoing weekly demonstrations at the border fence with Israel, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.

Note the sequencing. The exchange is again described as a "response" by Israel. The two murdered demonstrators, who were unarmed and posed no threat to Israel, are mentioned as an aside.

Facebook ban on Alex Jones and others is a form of modern-day book burning

When social media platforms simultaneously banned Alex Jones last summer, I wrote that the decision was merely a “warning shot against dissent.” The latest Facebook bans against more conservative figures proves that point.
Facebook, citing company policies on “hate organizations,” has now banned Infowars, Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Louis Farrakhan, among others. If that was not bad enough, now even merely posting a link to Infowars content could get you in trouble, too.

Fake news alert: CNN says Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido 'won election in January'

CNN took the concept of “fake news” to a whole new level with a recent report on Venezuela, in which it claimed that citizens “chose” coup leader Juan Guaido over current president Nicolas Maduro in January “elections.”

In a report on Sunday’s deadly Venezuelan military helicopter crash, CNN wrote that “pressure is mounting” on Maduro to step down “following elections in January in which voters chose opposition leader Juan Guaido over him for president.”

Slight problem there, CNN.

Venezuela did not hold elections in January — and Guaido definitely did not win them. He did, however, try to seize power from Maduro by force in January with US backing — and then again in April. Both coup attempts failed and Maduro remains president with the support of millions of Venezuelans who still back him.

Facebook, citing company policies on “hate organizations,” has now banned Infowars, Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Louis Farrakhan, among others. If that was not bad enough, now even merely posting a link to Infowars content could get you in trouble, too.

When I criticized the earlier bans against Jones, I prefaced it by saying that I was not a fan, lest anyone assume my words were tantamount to an endorsement of his content or opinions. But there should be no need for such a semi-apologetic disclaimer. This is straight-up censorship and it should be condemned, regardless of anyone’s personal feelings toward the targets.

Mark Zuckerberg’s ‘hate ban’ isn’t about safety — it’s about his own ego

Why is Alex Jones permitted to have a telephone?

It’s a serious question.

Facebook on Thursday announced that a small assortment of kooks — Alex Jones, Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos, Paul Joseph Watson, Paul Nehlen, Louis Farrakhan — will be permanently banned from Facebook, Instagram and other platforms it controls. Jones’ publication, Infowars, also will be banned. Praise of these figures, and expressions of support for them, also are to be prohibited.

Facebook is a private company and is under no legal obligation to provide accounts to figures whose views its executives find objectionable.

But how far do we want to extend that line of thinking?

Blithering Idiots Express Fear That Putin Will Rig 2020 Election For Trump

“Putin” is the number one USA trend on Twitter as of this writing, which is always a reliable sign that something very stupid is happening in American media.

“Putin” is once again the hysterical shrieking buzzword of the day because Donald Trump openly boasted at a press conference of having had an hour-long phone call with the Russian president, in which he claims the two leaders discussed nuclear de-escalation, Venezuela, North Korea, and the discredited “collusion” narrative. When asked whether he’d told Putin not to meddle in the 2020 US elections, Trump replied, “We didn’t discuss that.”

Once again, ‘NYT’ distorts the news, dishonestly making Gazans the aggressor and Israel the victim

Here’s today’s misleading headline in the Times; “Gaza Militants Fire 250 Rockets, and Israel Responds With Airstrikes.” This is a classic Times tactic to rig its Israel/Palestine coverage; distort the timeline to make it seem like the Palestinians started the violence, and that Israel is (reluctantly) “responding.”

Amos Harel, who covers the military for the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, is hardly a supporter of Hamas. But he is an honest reporter, and you can turn to him (or one of his colleagues), rather than to the New York Times whenever there is a new outbreak of violence so you can try and figure out what is actually happening.

Amos Harel tells a more complicated story. He reports that the day before the rocket barrage, during Friday protests along the Gaza border, an Israeli jeep came under fire; one Israeli officer received “moderate” wounds and a soldier was wounded lightly. Then,

Now that Biden has served the Obama administration, and served a long career in politics ,he’s no longer a spring chicken( meaning young ) you best bet that he has submitted to the will of the donors .

MEDIA BIAS/FACT CHECK: PART OF A LARGER OPERATION TO DESTROY ALTERNATIVE MEDIA

SOURCE: KURT NIMMO
While doing research for a Newsbud video, I came across the Media Bias/Fact Check (MBFC) website. This is one of a growing number of “fact checking” websites designed to discredit news websites not following official narratives closely enough.

Here’s what the site has to say about Newsbud and my participation:

Newsbud (NB) is a right wing, conspiracy and anti-government site founded by, among others, Kurt Nimmo, the former lead editor and writer for Infowars. What sets NB apart from other sites of this type is that the stories are, for the most part, well written and contain numerous sources. The bias of the writing is also more subtle than sites such as Infowars, but just as prevalent. Both as an overtone to all the stories as well as the sometimes questionable sources and / or the conclusions drawn from the source material. Additionally, many of their sources are other NB stories, or work the author and editors have done elsewhere.

Kurt Nimmo is one blogger for whom Mike and I have a great deal of respect, and we link to his articles frequently.

The Occupation of the American Mind (45-minute version)

Over the past few years, Israel's ongoing military occupation of Palestinian territory and repeated invasions of the Gaza strip have triggered a fierce backlash against Israeli policies virtually everywhere in the world -- except the United States. The Occupation of the American Mind takes an eye-opening look at this critical exception, zeroing in on pro-Israel public relations efforts within the U.S.

Narrated by Roger Waters and featuring leading observers of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and U.S. media culture, the film explores how the Israeli government, the U.S. government, and the pro-Israel lobby have joined forces, often with very different motives, to shape American media coverage of the conflict in Israel's favor.

Sharyl Attkisson: How Media Narratives Became More Important Than Facts

The day that I told CBS News I wished to leave my job as investigative correspondent ahead of my contract, I didn’t give a reason. I didn’t see the point because the problem wasn’t fixable.

Nor was it isolated to CBS News.

My own take is that - as our industry has changed in ways that have become undeniable to most - I was a bit of the canary in the coal mine. By that, I mean I believe I was among the first to really pay attention to the increasingly effective operations to shape and censor news—the movements to establish narratives rather than follow facts—and to see the growing influence of smear operations, political interests, and corporate interests on the news.

MSM melts down as Trump talks Venezuela with Putin… and ‘feels same way’

America's most trusted talking heads are in meltdown mode, once again accusing Donald Trump of taking orders from Vladimir Putin, after the US leader was seemingly too soft with the Russian president in a recent phone call.

Rachel Maddow, Jake Tapper, and other spirited Russiagate promoters suffered full-on meltdowns upon learning that Trump apparently hadn’t ‘properly' discussed the issue of “election meddling” in his first phone call with Vladimir Putin since the Mueller report's release.

Rather, the two leaders spoke about "trade, Venezuela, Ukraine, North Korea, nuclear arms control" and "the Russian hoax" during the hour-long call, according to Trump's tweet.

Glen Greenwald Reams Media For Collusion Coverage

Barr probably didn’t expect to become a major figure in the Russia story. He had nothing to do with it. As far as we know, Barr never met with secret agents in Prague. He never texted Vladimir Putin on his blackberry. He never managed a Macedonian content farm. If Barr betrayed his country for a sack or rubles and a case of vodka, nobody has ever proved it. But it doesn’t matter. The Russia story cannot die. CNN, The Washington Post, and the Democratic Party have too much invested in it.

The fact it’s been proved a hoax is irrelevant to them. Bill Barr is a handy way to keep the Russia in the news. Watch today’s talking point in action. Somewhere in the basement of the DNC, some a messaging consultant has decided that “credibility” is the most effective line of attack:

Facebook says it will allow Holocaust denial

The social media giant deleted the personal, professional and fan accounts of some leading extremists and conspiracy theorists, like David Duke, Louis Farrakhan and Alex Jones, on Thursday. But in a letter from April 9, Joel Kaplan, Facebook’s vice president of global public policy, said the site would still allow users to “say things on Facebook that are wrong or inaccurate, even when they are offensive.”

The letter was obtained by Jewish Insider and published Thursday.

“We take down any content that celebrates, defends, or attempts to justify the Holocaust,” Kaplan wrote. “But we do not remove lies or content that is inaccurate — whether it’s denying the Holocaust, the Armenian massacre, or the fact that the Syrian government has killed hundreds of thousands of its own people.”
