THERE IS A SOLUTION TO BIG TECH CENSORSHIP – BUT NO POLITICIAN WILL TOUCH IT

There Is A Solution To Big Tech Censorship – But No Politician Will Touch It

This article was originally published by Brandon Smith at Alt-Market.us. 

The issue of censorship by major tech companies is a precarious one, and I’m becoming increasingly suspicious of the nature of the debate. There are some complexities, but it can all be boiled down to this:

Big tech social media conglomerates argue that their websites are like any other private business and that they are protected from overt government interference by the US constitution. In other words, they have a right to platform or de-platform anyone they choose. Of course, this is the exact OPPOSITE of what most leftist groups have argued in the past when it comes to private businesses refusing to cooperate with people they disagree with on basic principle, such as LGBT activists, but let’s set that hypocrisy aside for now.

Social media companies have decided that the people they want to de-platform most are conservatives, along with anyone else who disagrees with hard-left ideologies such as social justice or the handling of the pandemic situation. Statements or content that run contrary to leftist philosophies are simply labeled “hate speech” or “conspiracy theory” and are erased.

Conservatives argue that big tech is a monopoly with far too much power, that social media should be treated more like a public resource or “town square” and that these companies are violating the free speech rights of conservatives by specifically targeting them for censorship. Many conservatives are also demanding that Donald Trump and the government step in to regulate or punish such companies for these actions.

The truth is that both sides are right, and both sides are wrong. The real solution to the problem requires a radical change in how we view the institution of corporations and how they interact with government, and it’s a solution I doubt ANY political official will consider, and that includes Trump.

Let me explain…

Social media and big tech do in fact represent a monopoly, but not in terms most people are familiar with. Instead of acting only as an economic monopoly controlling market share, big tech is also a political monopoly controlling the majority of communication platforms. If only one political and social ideological group dominates every major social media and digital information outlet, this in my view represents a completely unbalanced power dynamic that does indeed threaten the free speech rights of the populace.

Rabid censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop scandal, a scandal that is supported by facts and evidence that big tech has chosen to bury because it’s inconvenient to them rather than a violation of their community guidelines, is just one more example of the incredible danger that social media monopolies present.

Obviously, there is the issue of private property rights to consider. I fully support and defend private property rights and I do believe that a business has the freedom to refuse service to anyone for any reason. Just because you open your doors to the public does not mean the public now owns your labor. You should have the right to refuse labor whenever you wish.

If a business refuses a customer based merely on personal bias, then word is going to get around quickly and that business may lose a large number of potential buyers in the future (this is happening right now with multiple alternative social media companies on the rise). The free market should determine the fate of that business, not state or federal governments.

Government itself is an untrustworthy entity that craves a monopoly of power, and by handing government the authority to micromanage the policies and internal practices of web companies we might be trading the big tech monster for an even more dangerous governmental monster.

Who is to say that the government will stop with sites like Facebook or Twitter or Google? Maybe they will exploit their newfound powers to go after smaller websites as well. Maybe they will attempt to micromanage the entire internet. Maybe they will start dominating and restricting conservative websites instead of the leftist conglomerates we intended, and then we will be doubly screwed.

If you value freedom and the Bill of Rights, then this debate leaves us at an impasse. Both sides (perhaps conveniently) lead to a totalitarian outcome. The thing is, the publicly presented argument is a contrived one, a manipulated discussion that only presents two sides when there are more options to consider. The narrative is fixed, it is a farce.

The public has been led to believe that government and corporations are separate tools that can be used to keep each side in check. This is a lie. Big government and big corporations have always worked together while pretending to be disconnected, and this needs to stop if we are to ever defuse the political time bomb we now face.

To solve the social media censorship debacle we need to examine the very roots of corporations as entities. First, corporations as we know them today are a relatively new phenomenon. Adam Smith described the concept of a corporation as a “joint-stock company” in his treatise ‘The Wealth Of Nations’, and stood against them as a threat to free-market economics. He specifically outlined their history of monopoly and failure, and criticized their habit of avoiding responsibility for mistakes and crimes.

Joint-stock companies were chartered by governments and given special protections from risk, as well as protection from civil litigation (lawsuits). But, they were supposed to be temporary business entities, not perpetual business entities. The point was to allow for the creation of a joint-stock company to finish a particular job, such as building a railroad, and once the job was finished the company was dissolved and the government protections were no longer needed. Smith knew that if corporations were ever allowed to become permanent fixtures in an economy, they would result in disaster.

This is exactly what happened in 1886 when the Supreme Court allowed companies like Southern Pacific Railroad to use the 14th Amendment, which was supposed to protect the constitutional rights of newly freed slaves, as a loophole to declare corporations as “legal persons” with all the protections of an individual citizen. Not only that, but with limited liability, corporations actually became super-citizens with protections far beyond normal individuals. Corporations became the preeminent force in the world and it was their relationship with governments that made this possible.

This fact completely debunks today’s notion of what constitutes free markets. Corporations ARE NOT free market structures. They are, in fact, government-chartered and government-protected monopolies. They are SOCIALIST creations, not free-market creations, and therefore they should not exist in a free market society at all.

The alternative option to corporations was for businesses to form “partnerships”, which did not enjoy protection from government, limited liability or the ability to form monopolies. When the owners of a partnership committed a crime, they could be personally held liable for that crime. When a corporation commits a crime, only the company as a vaporous faceless entity can be punished. This is why it is very rare to see company CEOs face prosecution no matter how egregious and catastrophic their actions.

Today, certain corporations continue to enjoy government protections while also enjoying government welfare. Meaning, these companies get a legal shield while also basking in the advantage of tax incentives and taxpayer dollars.

For example, Google (Alphabet and YouTube) has long received huge tax breaks and is rarely if ever forced to pay in full for the massive bandwidth the company uses. In fact, YouTube was facing bandwidth affordability issues until it was purchased by Alphabet and Google, then it no longer had to worry about it – Google gets over 21 times more bandwidth than it actually pays for because of government intervention.

The same rules apply to companies like Twitter, Facebook, Netflix, Apple, etc. All of them enjoy extensive tax breaks as well as cheap bandwidth that makes it impossible for small and medium-sized businesses to compete, even if they operate on a superior model or have superior ideas. Many times the corporations pay no taxes whatsoever while smaller businesses are crippled by overt payments.

A truly free market requires competition as a rule, but the current system deliberately crushes the competition. Again, we live in a socialist framework, not a free market framework.

Now that we understand the nature of big tech and what these companies actually are (creations of government), the debate on social media censorship changes.

How? Take for example the fact that public universities in the US are not legally allowed to interfere with free speech rights because many of them survive by consuming taxpayer dollars. They are PUBLIC institutions, not private. Why then are we treating major corporations that survive on endless taxpayer infusions and incentives as if they are private businesses? They are not – They are publicly funded structures chartered by the government and therefore they should be subject to the same rules on free speech that universities are required to follow.

Said corporations will surely argue against this and will attempt to use legal chicanery to maintain their monopolies. Trying to dismantle them could take decades, and there are no guarantees that government officials will even make the attempt? Why would they? The relationship between government and corporations has been an advantageous one for establishment elites for decades.

Instead of challenging the corporate model in the Supreme Court, an easier option would be to simply take away all welfare and tax incentives for any big tech companies that refuse to allow free speech on their platforms. If Google had to pay normal price for the bandwidth it uses, the corporation would either implode or it would be forced to break apart into multiple smaller companies that would then compete with each other. More competition means lower prices for consumers along with better products. The threat of losing tax incentives would mean more large companies would refrain from censorship.

Donald Trump as president could conceivably make this happen, but he will not, and neither will any other political official. The partnership between government and corporations will continue, I believe because there are other agendas at play here. The establishment WANTS the public to argue in favor of tech totalitarianism on one side and in favor of government totalitarianism on the other side. They aren’t going to allow any other solutions to enter the discussion.

The only available strategy left for fighting back against big tech is to continue leaving their platforms and building our own. This will take many years to accomplish. The point is, there is a more permanent option, but it requires a complete deconstruction of the socialist government/corporate framework now in place. To confront the power dynamic between governments and major conglomerates is to confront one of the fundamental sources of corruption within our society, which is why it won’t be allowed. And when the system refuses to police itself, public upheaval becomes inevitable.

SHUT THEM DOWN: It’s time to end the tyranny of Big Tech censorship in America

Image: SHUT THEM DOWN: It’s time to end the tyranny of Big Tech censorship in America

(Natural News) The tyranny of Big Tech is now on full display in America as Twitter has unleashed an army of so-called “fact-checkers” (i.e. left-wing propagandists) to place fact-check labels on the tweets of President Trump.

“Fact-checking” is just the excuse for tech giants like Twitter, Google, Wikipedia, YouTube or Facebook to interrupt the communications of conservative or pro-Trump users with radical left-wing propaganda messages. The very idea that a tech company led by communists and radical left-wing socialists could claim a monopoly on “facts” is absurd. No one has a monopoly on facts, and the entire fact-checking fiasco of the Big Tech ecosystem has boiled down to politically targeted censorship run by radical left-wing propagandists who are truly mentally ill in the fact that they actually believe their delusions are an accurate map of reality.

But it’s more than mere propaganda. It’s election rigging. It’s a violation of the civil rights of millions of Americans. And it’s almost certainly a type of criminal racketeering and fraud that should be aggressively prosecuted by the DOJ as well as Attorneys General across the 50 states.

Now, for the first time, after years of censorship of Trump supporters, the President himself is finally vowing to do something decisive about Big Tech tyranny. He tweets, “Twitter has now shown that everything we have been saying about them (and their other compatriots) is correct. Big action to follow!”

What “big action” could that be?

If Trump wanted to resolve this problem literally overnight, his best option is to seize the domain names of the tech giants and force them to respect the First Amendment or be shut down.

Why President Trump must SEIZE the domain names Google.com, Twitter.com, Wikipedia.com, Facebook.com, YouTube.com, Vimeo.com and many more

The politically-targeted censorship of the tech giants mentioned above is, of course, criminal and fraudulent. It is election rigging, for starters, and Robert Mueller’s prosecution of so-called “Russian” content farms has already proved that the DOJ can charge tech companies with “attempt to defraud the United States of America” by interfering with elections.

All the left-wing tech giants are guilty of election rigging, which means they’re guilty of criminal fraud. The CEOs of the tech giants are not merely criminals but enemies against humanity:

But that’s only the beginning. In many cases, their politically targeted censorship is coordinated with the left-wing media. CNN broadcasts a segment demanding Facebook ban a certain channel, and Facebook complies. YouTube and Twitter usually follow in concert. This is coordinated, malicious de-platforming that’s almost always conducted for a political purpose: To silence a pro-Trump voice and thereby alter the landscape of public debate in order to eliminate Trump in the next election.

Without the freedom to speak, there can be no “fair and free” elections… all elections are null and void

Democracy, of course, cannot survive without the freedom to think, and the freedom to think cannot exist without the freedom to speak. The very idea of “fair and free” elections depends entirely on people being able to debate and consider a variety of ideas circulating in public forums such as Twitter, YouTube and Facebook.

Without the freedom to speak, there can be no fair and free elections.

This means that until the First Amendment is respected by the tech giants, all elections should be postponed until at least one year has passed after free speech is restored.

Put another way, if the tech giants reverse their censorship today and reinstate all the pro-Trump channels and voices that they insidiously banned over the last three years, then we could perhaps hold elections in May of 2021.

But we cannot hold fair and free elections in November of this year, as those elections have already been rigged or stolen by Big Tech censorship.

All the debates have been rigged. Only one side of every debate is allowed to exist on the Big Tech platforms. Whether you’re talking about climate change, the coronavirus, border security or abortion, there is only one side of every debate that’s called “facts,” and those so-called “facts” are determined entirely by delusional, sociopathic Leftists who run the tech giants and believe they alone have the right to decide the “truthiness” of every statement under the sun.

The very existence of these Big Tech authoritarian enforcers is irreconcilable with basic human dignity and freedom. No corporation has the right to unilaterally decide what is true, and the very invocation of “facts” is an insult to all those who understand logic and reason. Facts may be stubborn things, but they are also incredibly difficult to nail down, and when so-called “facts” are claimed to be perfectly formed by the very people whose own rage-filled emotional filters practically nullify any rational circuitry in their own brains, those “facts” turn out to be nothing more than consensus delusions.

Consensus does not determine fact, and this is especially true when the consensus is cherry picked to support a particular slant on “facts” while silencing all those with opposing views.

We are calling on President Trump to suspend the 2020 elections until free speech is restored in America

Today we call on President Trump to suspend the 2020 elections, seize the domain names of the tech giants to temporarily shut them down, and force Big Tech to respect the universal right to free speech among not just Americans but citizens around the world who use Big Tech’s platforms.

The freedom to speak is a universal right, and Big Tech’s insidious, repeated efforts to suppress free speech are a crime against humanity. Any corporation that engages in this large-scale, malicious oppression of basic human rights should either be forced to change its ways or be permanently abolished and prevented from functioning ever again.

Unless Twitter respects free speech for all its users, in other words, Twitter should be abolished and eliminated, and Jack Dorsey should face trial for his crimes against humanity.

Fair and free elections can only take place after the public has been able to experience at least a full year of a level playing field when it comes to public discussions and debates on all topics, including politics, vaccines, transgenderism, abortions, GMOs, pandemics and so on.

We the People refuse to accept the outcome of the 2020 elections unless free speech is restored

Finally, We the People — all of us whom are being illegally silenced and censored by Big Tech — now assert that we will not accept the outcome of the 2020 elections unless free speech is restored long before the elections take place. (Ideally, we need a full year of a level playing field before any honest elections can be held.)

The elections are being rigged every day via a coordinated criminal conspiracy among the tech giants to deprive the American people of their civil rights to engage in the very process of democracy: Debate, speech and voting.

It’s also abundantly clear that every censorship effort by the tech giants has been formulated specifically to defeat President Trump and all Republicans in the US Congress. Christians are also being systematically targeted and silenced by the radical left-leaning tech giants. Because these malicious censorship efforts are clearly so one-sided and engineered to rig all future elections, they qualify as criminal racketeering under the RICO Act.

Big Tech is, in reality, a criminal cartel of techno-fascists who routinely violate U.S. law with increasing aggressiveness. It is now abundantly clear they will never stop their crimes against America unless they are forced to stop. This means that unless humanity wants to wake up and find itself utterly enslaved, living in an Orwellian authoritarian nightmare run by lunatic Leftists who celebrate the murder of babies and the chemical neutering of children under the label of “transgenderism,” we must all rise up and abolish Big Tech with a sense of urgency.

The tech giants must be dismantled and permanently abolished. They must never be allowed to rise up again and concentrate the power of speech in the hands of the few. The CEOs and top managers of all the tech giants who have engaged in this criminal behavior must be arrested and prosecuted, then punished accordingly.

In summary:

– Big Tech platforms, including Wikipedia, Google, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, are engaged in a criminal conspiracy against the United States of America to selectively censor conservative, Christian and pro-Trump voices in an effort to rig all future elections and control the allowable arguments in every debate.

– The U.S. government must seize the domain names of all the tech giants to halt their crimes against the American people. The domain names may be returned once those corporations sign a consent decree in which they agree to reverse all their free speech censorship and allow speech freedom on their platforms.

– The 2020 elections must be postponed until mid-2021 in order to allow free speech to be restored in America so that open debates can be allowed to take place, contributing to “fair and free” elections.

– Knowing that Big Tech is actively working to rig the 2020 elections with politically targeted censorship, if the 2020 elections are allowed to take place, We the People withdraw our consent from recognizing the “winners” of that rigged election.

– Unless free speech is restored, the 2020 elections are already null and void, and the American people should universally withhold any recognition of the outcome of the 2020 election while demanding the restoration of free speech, public debate and the freedom to think as the necessary pillars for any resumption of democratic elections.

Stop censoring us, Big Tech! Joe Rogan’s $100 million move to Spotify sends stark message to YouTube

RT should have mentioned that the first person Rogan called after he signed the Spotify deal was Alex Jones. Rogan told Jones that he would be the first guest on his new platform.
I am thrilled that someone finally is doing something to bypass the censorship of these bloated social media corporations.
Spotify must make the platform as appealing and efficient as YouTube. And hopefully, Spotify will learn from the censorship and demonetizing mistakes that YouTube did.
Stop censoring us, Big Tech! Joe Rogan’s $100 million move to Spotify sends stark message to YouTube
The comedian’s landmark shift away from the Google-owned streaming service could signal the start of a wave of creators moving away from the site – as it bafflingly attempts to pander to legacy media.

If you know podcasts, you know Joe Rogan. The American comedian has been producing his Joe Rogan Experience for more than a decade. He began just recording himself and his fellow comics shooting the breeze and smoking some weed before and after gigs.

Fast forward ten years and he has one of the biggest talk shows on the planet with presidential candidates, Hollywood megastars and billionaires queuing up to join him in the studio. The show has such enormous sway that it even managed to affect the price of Tesla stocks after Elon Musk took a toke on a joint during an interview.

In view of all this, it is perhaps not surprising that Spotify have just wooed the former Fear Factor presenter away from YouTube after writing him a cheque for a rumoured $100 million. That is proper, box office megabucks. To put it into context, that is more than Dr Phil, Howard Stern, Rush Limbaugh, Ellen DeGeneres and Ryan Seacrest were valued at last year by Forbes Magazine in their top five list of “World’s Highest Paid Hosts”.

This, on top of his always sold out arena tours as a comedian, his long-running deal with Netflix to screen his specials and his role as a colour commentator for the UFC have made Rogan a staggeringly wealthy man, and all from just talking.

Since its inception, the Joe Rogan Experience’s home has been YouTube. His channel, “PowerfulJRE”, has more than eight million subscribers and he pulls in around 400 million views a month. But despite these outrageous numbers and his ludicrous success on the medium, Rogan has decided to leave the platform. While he will keep updating his JRE Clips channel, which shows 5-15minute clips from his shows, his flagship multiple-hour broadcasts will be made available exclusively to Spotify.

Part of his reason for jumping ship (although I’m sure the $100 million helped) is the way YouTube has been censoring both his own and other people’s content on the platform. Rogan has often complained of his shows being “demonetised” on the streaming service.

Demonetisation is when YouTube removes adverts from a video posted by a content creator, meaning that they no longer make any money from that video being on the site. The reason Google owned YouTube normally gives for that is that advertisers would be “unhappy” seeing their products advertised on that channel as it may be “problematic”.

ALSO ON RT.COMThree more months of lockdown? Joe Rogan mulls leaving ‘restrictive’ California for TexasLast October, Rogan said: “They’re scrambling for control. They want to control the way people communicate. And they also want to make a profit. See part of this is they’re incentivizing people to do shows that they can profit off of. So if you have a show that has no bad language, if you have a show that has no controversial topics, those shows are more appealing to advertisers. So for them, as a business, they’ll look at someone like me and say, ‘Well this is a limited advertisers option’.”

As a disease, demonetisation appears much more likely to afflict “right wing” content creators. Rogan appears to have fallen into this category simply by having right of centre guests on his show, despite him interviewing and saying that he would have voted Bernie Sanders if he had won the democratic nomination, as well as being a vocal supporter of Democratic congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.

Other stars on the platform that have called out YouTube for apparently politically motivated censorship include conservative comic and talk show host Steven Crowder, British YouTuber Carl Benjamin (better known as Sargon of Akkad) and talk show host Dave Rubin, all of whom have also appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience.

Rogan leaving the platform should come as a wake-up call to YouTube. He is one of their biggest and most visible stars and his shift to Spotify is likely to be the first of many moves away from the streaming service. Of the three mentioned above, most of Crowder’s content is released on Blaze TV, Rubin has launched his own social network “Thinkspot” in partnership with best-selling author Jordan Peterson, and yesterday Benjamin announced during a livestream he intended to set up his own outlet and leave YouTube.

ALSO ON RT.COMElon Musk says human language will be OBSOLETE in 10 years, after struggling to pronounce his baby’s name on Joe RoganAlong with apparently penalising “wrong thinking” content creators, YouTube has also made the decision to prioritise what it calls “authoritative sources”. This has seen it bias its algorithms in favour of mainstream news outlets, such as CNN, the BBC and Fox News, ahead of creators who have made their name on the site itself. The move seems to be an attempt by Google to cosy up to liberal-leaning legacy media for reasons of corporate vanity. However, it has angered content creators on the platform who helped build the site’s popularity, and annoyed viewers, many of whom visit YouTube expressly to get away from the MSM.

In the years to come, Rogan’s move to Spotify will come to be seen as a landmark moment in the history of the media. Having seen earning potential, a slew of content creators are likely to begin shifting away from YouTube while it continues to pander to the old media giants. YouTube is watched by younger people in search of something fresh, whereas the average age of Fox and CNN viewers is north of 60. If YouTube wants to hang on to its stellar talent it needs to stop trying to force its California liberal West Coast values onto its viewers and stay true to its original mission, “Broadcast Yourself”.

Snopes, the ultimate FAKE “fact” checker

Image: Snopes, the ultimate FAKE “fact” checker

(Natural News) By now, you’ve hopefully realized that nearly all mainstream news that has to do with safety, health, and human rights is fake and sourced by even more fake news. It’s a circle of deception that leads to nowhere, except making all the wrong choices about the important aspects of life. Why is it set up that way? Money. There’s way more money in managing sick Americans than healing them. That’s where Snopes comes in. In order to mislead the masses when they have those moments of second-guessing, Snopes is there to reassure you that your biggest mistakes are the right mistakes.

Snopes is a fake fact-checker with one goal – ensuring you only find bad advice online about everything that really matters

Not only is Snopes a source of fake stories now, they were once known as the “Urban Legends” reference pages, spreading myths and rumors and pretending to “debunk” truths all over the internet about healthy eating, effective supplements, and even the evidence-based, clinical research and peer-reviewed science behind nutrition. How did the fake fact-checker “legend” start? They were the first to call themselves the “online encyclopedia.” That’s how.

A has-been, unpleasant-looking, nerdy ex-couple decided one day in the mid-1990’ to begin making a website that had “answers” to questionable discussions found on line. They even tried to start a TV pilot, but it failed right away. After Snopes failed miserably for several years as the “online encyclopedia,” they hired shills from message boards to help save their website. That must have worked, because a few years later they got bought out by Proper Media, an internet management firm.

The fake fact-checkers began “modernizing” archives (in other words, changing history books to fit a narrative). This was the beginning of “book burning,” but without using fire. Instead you just change what people find online when they search for certain answers, especially that which is already popularly questionable. They even lie about Vietnam. It’s one big disinformation campaign fueled and sourced by more propaganda.

The end goal is to make money by lying about the most important things people really want to understand in order to be healthy, safe, and independent thinkers.

Snopes main aim is to “confirm legends” by convincing you vaccines are safe and genetically modified food is healthy

They love to discredit any natural cures and remedies, so that people who are fed up with the failing allopathic (a.k.a. allopathic) system of slash and burn medical horrors, will turn to the internet to find real answers to their health problems, only to wind up believing Snopes’ lies. It’s a planned vicious cycle, and it’s been around for quite awhile now. Millions of Americans think Snopes gives real advice. Working advice. Not fooling them into being the fools they already are, but forever.

That’s why millions of Americans can’t figure out how they get cancer, even though they’re eating GMO food at every meal, and then taking experimental chemical concoctions made in laboratories for all their sicknesses (a.k.a. prescription medications).

Snopes references fake news media giants, and they reference Snopes in return, like one big circle jerk of lying morons

Yes, Snopes loves CNN, the sleazebag NYT, and “orange man bad” MSNBC. That’s really all you need to know to never trust them with anything, ever. The schmuck shyster and con who thought it all up still runs it from his couch. He’s paid by pharma thugs to continue working as a shill for life, pointing millions of sheeple (about 6 million monthly) towards his deadly cliff of “advice.”

If you want to believe urban legends about vaccines helping people or prescription drugs being the answer to your health problems, just read Snopes fake encyclopedia answers to your friends, family, neighbors and coworkers. Then your “herd immunity” will be realized when you all go off the health cliff together.

The Snopes repository of garbage and fecal matter online was intended to deliberately mislead people about important subjects. That’s why Snopes is the original internet troll, because T.R.O.L.L. is an acronym for “The Repository of Lost Legends.” The whole project name is like spitting in the face of their own believers. It’s an internet prank.

In 2009, FactCheck.org (another fake fact-checker monolith) likes how good Snopes had become at lying about political issues and began backing their efforts. Snopes is a far-Left political hack outfit that only applies it’s “debunking standards” to truth news and independent media when their real news affects big pharma or biotech profits.

Snopes accepts funding from known pedophiles (think paranormal-pervert James Randi here) and at least $100,000 from Mark F.B. Satan Zuckerberg, as part of their fake fact-checking “partnership.” Then, Snopes claimed they broke up with Fakebook in February, 2019.

Maybe one day soon they’ll start a “relationship” with some other fake fact-checker like NPR, Politifact, or PBS. But for now, they sell a “premium membership” in fake fact-checking for people who absolutely LOVE being lied to daily (without ads popping up for your convenience). Are you too suffering from O.M.B.D. – “Orange Man Bad Disease?” Tune your internet dial to HealthFreedom.news for updates on new vaccines that maim and kill humans while spreading disease, all while fake fact-checkers tell you they’re “safe and effective!” Hey Snopes, you are now officially debunked as a fact-checker. You’re welcome.

Joe Rogan Tells Alex Jones He Is ‘Going to WAR’ Against Google And Big Tech

Rogan snubbed YouTube as a strike back against CENSORSHIP.

Alex Jones exclusively revealed Thursday that Joe Rogan signed an exclusivity contract for his podcast with Spotify as a way of striking back against YouTube censorship.

Jones, who has been friends with Rogan for 22 years, spoke at length with the podcast king, with Rogan telling him that he should announce to the world that the move is a direct strike against Google, that the “gloves are off” and he is “going to war” against big tech tyranny.

Jones told his audience that Rogan had encouraged him to go on air and “put it all out there.”

The deal, suggested to be worth $100 million was announced earlier this week. Analysts are saying that it will change the face of media forever.

Jones, who has appeared on The Joe Rogan Experience numerous times, also announced that Rogan had specifically requested in his contract with Spotify that the Infowars host will be allowed to appear uncensored on the podcast on Spotify.

Jones said Rogan wants him as the first guest on the show when it arrives on Spotify on the 1st of September, followed by Elon Musk, who is also currently speaking out against big tech censorship and cancel culture.

The last time Jones appeared on the podcast, it was the most listened to podcast of 2019 with over 17 million views on YouTube..

Google was subsequently caught shadow banning the episode in an attempt to stop its popularity.

Jones said Rogan told him he is sick of being treated poorly by Google, and the straw that broke the camel’s back was that Rogan wanted to interview doctors and experts who have differing opinions on the coronavirus to the officially sanctioned narrative, and was told by YouTube that they would not allow such content on their platform.

Rogan also told Jones that the lockdown has provided him more clarity on the situation.

Rogan has noted on his podcast that YouTube is consistently demonetising his content and removing videos. He told Jones that he sees it not only as ‘un-American’, but also ‘anti-human’.

An excited Jones descried the move by Rogan as “peak internet”.

Rogan’s podcast was downloaded 190 million times per month last year. His YouTube channel has 8.42 million subscribers, and the move away is sure to be a huge strike against big tech thought control.

Facebook ‘Fact Checker’ Worked At Wuhan Biolab; Ruled Out Virus-Leak While ‘Debunking’ Articles

http://www.zerohedge.com

A Facebook fact checker who has ‘debunked’ articles suggesting that COVID-19 may have leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) has a giant conflict of interest; she worked at the institute – which is now suspected of accidentally leaking the hyper-virulent virus which has killed over 130,000 people and cast the global economy into chaos.

Danielle Anderson, who works at Duke University’s NUS Medical School lab in Singapore, also contributes to Science Feedback – which Facebook has been using to slap “False Information” labels on articles claiming that COVID-19 may have originated at the Wuhan institute – where Anderson worked with bat coronavirus.

A quick search of Anderson’s publications reveals no fewer than nine collaborations with Dr. Peng Zhou – a Wuhan scientist experimenting on bat coronavirus (the mention of whom may result in a Twitter ban).

Anderson has been adamant that the lab adheres to the highest standards of safety, and that COVID-19 simply couldn’t have accidentally been leaked by her colleagues.

“I have worked in this exact laboratory at various times for the past 2 years. I can personally attest to the strict control and containment measures implemented while working there,” Anderson writes in one such ‘debunking’ of a New York Post article that claims “China [is having] a problem keeping dangerous pathogens in test tubes where they belong” while Science Feedback cast doubt on the Post‘s claim that “evidence points to SARS-CoV-2 research being carried out at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”

Except, they were carrying out SARS-CoV-2 research at that exact lab, according to new reports in the Wall Street Journal, the Daily Mail and Fox News.

An April 9 report in the Journal reveals that COVID-19 is genetically identical to a coronavirus found in a horseshoe bat “collected by hazmat-clad scientists from the Institute of Virology in Wuhan.”

While a Wednesday report from Fox News reveals that COVID-19 leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, and that “patient zero” was an employee who became infected before spreading it throughout the community, according to ‘multiple sources who have been briefed on the details.’

And while Anderson was busy covering for her corona-labmates with Facebook debunkings implicating the WIV, she went on national television to explain that the virus could have only come from outside the lab.

Anderson further peddled the now-debunked wet-market theory in a paper she co-wrote in The Lancet, which reads: “While recognising the tremendous effort by the China CDC team in the early response to the 2019-nCoV outbreak, the small number of team members trained in animal health was probably one of the reasons for the delay in identifying an intermediate animal(s), which is likely to have caused the spread of the virus in a region of the market where wildlife animals were traded and subsequently found to be heavily contaminated. Unfortunately, what animal(s) was involved in transmission remains unknown.”

Any suggestion to the contrary is now deemed ‘False Information’ by Facebook, thanks to the highly conflicted Danielle Anderson and crew over at Science Feedback.

Narrative Managers Argue China-Like Internet Censorship Is Needed

 

Neoconservative publication The Atlantic has published an article authored by two university professors titled “Internet Speech Will Never Go Back to Normal”, subtitled “In the debate over freedom versus control of the global network, China was largely correct, and the U.S. was wrong.”

The article is actually worth reading in full, not just because it’s outrage porn for anyone who values human communication that is unregulated by oligarchs and government agencies, but because it’s actually packed full of extensively sourced information about the way Silicon Valley tech giants are collaborating with western governments to censor speech. The only difference between this article and something you might read on some libertarian website is that this article argues that all of these regulations on speech are a good thing.

Here’s an archive of the article if you don’t want to give clicks to The Atlantic, whose editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg once assured the world that “the coming invasion of Iraq will be remembered as an act of profound morality.” Do give it a look if this interests you and you have time.

“In the great debate of the past two decades about freedom versus control of the network, China was largely right and the United States was largely wrong,” argue the article’s authors, one of whom is a former Bush administration lawyer. “Significant monitoring and speech control are inevitable components of a mature and flourishing internet, and governments must play a large role in these practices to ensure that the internet is compatible with a society’s norms and values.”

The article paints an accurate picture of the ways in which supposedly independent social media platforms have been collaborating with governments and with each other to regulate speech and have increased that collaboration during the Covid-19 pandemic, noting how “In March 2019, Zuckerberg invited the government to regulate ‘harmful content’ on his platform” and how “As in other contexts, Facebook relies on fact-checking organizations and ‘authorities’ (from the World Health Organization to the governments of U.S. states) to ascertain which content to downgrade or remove.”

“These platforms have engaged in ‘strategic collaboration‘ with the federal government, including by sharing information, to fight foreign electoral interference,” The Atlantic reports after outlining ways in which Facebook, Twitter and Youtube have been censoring speech in “aggressive but still imperfect steps to fend off foreign adversaries.”

“The harms from digital speech will also continue to grow, as will speech controls on these networks,” the article’s authors assert. “And invariably, government involvement will grow. At the moment, the private sector is making most of the important decisions, though often under government pressure. But as Zuckerberg has pleaded, the firms may not be able to regulate speech legitimately without heavier government guidance and involvement. It is also unclear whether, for example, the companies can adequately contain foreign misinformation and prevent digital tampering with voting mechanisms without more government surveillance.”

This article comes out days after journalist Whitney Webb published another article worth reading titled “Techno-Tyranny: How The US National Security State Is Using Coronavirus To Fulfill An Orwellian Vision“. Webb details how FOIA-obtained document by a US government organization called the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence (NSCAI) argues for the need to implement authoritarian measures like increased surveillance more in line with those used in China, in order to prevent the PRC from technologically surpassing the United States.

Webb notes for example how the document “cites the use of mass surveillance on China’s ‘huge population base’ is an example of how China’s ‘scale of consumer market’ advantage allowing ‘China to leap ahead’ in the fields of related technologies, like facial recognition.”

We’re also seeing an increase in surveillance being pushed for in a new report by the think tank Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, arguing that a drastic increase in tech surveillance is “a price worth paying” in order to fight Covid-19. Which is, of course, hilarious, because having the think tank of a Bush lapdog Prime Minister argue that more surveillance is a price worth paying to stop coronavirus is a lot like a bunch of muggers arguing that time saved by cutting through dark alleyways is worth the increased risk of mugging.

So that’s great. We’re seeing mainstream narrative managers shriek about the need for new cold war escalations against China’s bad, bad authoritarian government, while simultaneously arguing that western governments should espouse Beijing’s worst authoritarian impulses. This, as we’ve discussed previously, is because consent needs to be manufactured in order for the US-centralized empire to take drastic steps to prevent China from surpassing it and creating a multipolar world, and the freer people are to think and act and organize, the harder that’s going to be.

Oligarchs have no business controlling what we can and cannot say to each other. Governments have no business bringing more and more transparency to us while bringing more and more opacity to themselves. This is ugly, it is abusive, and it must end.

Freedom of speech is actually about freedom of thought. Speech is the carrying agent of thought; controlling human communication is actually about controlling the spread of ideas. Censorship is about controlling the thoughts that the public think in their heads. Speech control is mind control.

COULD IT BE TRUE? WILL WE BE FREE? MSM AND GOVERNMENTS WILL FAIL THIS TIME, IF I CAN HELP IT!

I like how Mac Slavo thinks but the revolution will be bloody. In all of history, name one time when the powerful elites shared the wealth and privileges they enjoy with the peasants?  Of course, we must abhor violence at all costs.  This is how the ruling classes have kept us in slavery by having us fight among each other. The Romans perfected this, Divide and Conquer. There are other ways, such as ignoring what the elites call wealth and boycotting everything they own and control. Yup, that means the boycotting of all corporations. Etc. Lou

Mac Slavo
April 19th, 2020

The mainstream media, who is responsible for pushing the government’s totalitarian ideals on the public are both crashing and burning along with their puppet masters as people constantly disobey their orders.  People all over the world are protesting the authoritarian boot on their throat and it’s only a matter of time until the power structure crumbles for good.

It’s a good time to commend humanity.  If anything good has come out of this “plandemic” it’s that people’s eyes are now wide open to the tyranny and police states they’ve been living under for centuries. Humanity is awakening to the fact that they own themselves and their lives are not to be gambled with by politicians.  I personally believe that this “pandemic” is going to be the beginning of the end of the ruling class, and it could not have come sooner.

As James Corbett of the Corbett report said: “No surprise that you are not hearing about this at all…so if you do want actual information about what is happening with these protests, you are, of course, going to have to online independent sources of information.”

Many in Big Tech are attempting censorship right now and we have, unfortunately, been signaled out for not toeing the line and falling in line with the ruling class and their calls for totalitarianism. At this point, I’m concerned with humanity’s right, freedom, liberty, and regaining self-ownership.  Let history show who was on the wrong side of this issue.

Real information can be found at the Corbett Report, and Del Bigtree’s YouTube channel. You can also watch the Ron Paul liberty report for some non-biased information.  People all over the planet are pushing back against tyranny.  We are no longer a small minority. The elitists have finally pushed the masses too far and the truth will get out.

If we stand together and oppose this tyranny right now, we can all experience the freedom we have owed at birth but denied by politicians and elitists.  It’s possible to break the chains of tyranny as we can see RIGHT NOW!

As James Corbett said:

“The real truth that they desperately don’t want you to think about is that they need your compliance to make this happen. This is an exceptionally important point. This is the reason why so much time, effort, attention, and energy is directed into propagandizing the public on various things. It is because what you think, what you believe, influences the way you act and what you are or are not willing to accept. You control reality. You control your reality. This us…the reason why propaganda even exists.”

Corbett adds:

“The way to defy this, the way to end the lockdown is not some occult mystery, it’s not going to require some sort of 18-dimensional chess, it’s not gonna be some big plan…no! You end the lockdown because the lockdown only happens because of compliance, because of people complying with it; because people go along with it. This is NOT a difficult point.”

Corbett lays it out just like we have. The time for disobeying is now. The time to reclaim your freedom is now. We are many and they are few. We decide when the draconian tyranny ends. And it ends NOW.

“If you dare do so in defiance of government orders, if you dare to try to open your business during this lockdown…there is strength in numbers.

The lockdown only exists because people comply with it.”

Stop waiting for “authorities” or rulers or politicians to tell you what to do! You own yourself. Don’t comply with tyranny or the tattle tale mini tyrants who love their own slavery and will stop at nothing to see others enslaved along with them. This is a pivotal time in history, and for people like Bill Gates. Gates’ days in power are numbered. The police state’s days are numbered. We are the ones who control our own lives. And we are many.

Start thinking for yourself. Start to know no one owns you. No government, no politician, no law enforcement officer, no bureaucrat and not state worker owns you.  No human can make a rightful owner and no human can make a rightful slave.  Realize the power you have in just realizing you own yourself.  It doesn’t matter how many votes a politician gets. It doesn’t matter what he commands, he still doesn’t own YOU.

This video from Corbett is powerful and hopefully, we can all start to realize we are humans too and we deserve rights, freedom, and to live our lives free from coercion just like the politicians do. This has never been about protecting lives, but about tyranny and control. Let’s show the elites that they own only what they’ve worked for. WE own OURSELVES!
