Conservatives Must Fight Big Tech or Lose

Daniel Greenfield

Front Page Mag, October 16, 2020

Long before, “In Soviet Russia, television watch (sic) you” became a staple of Cold War comedy routines, George Orwell’s 1984 novel had telescreens that broadcast propaganda and watched their citizens. Behind the satire is the core question of the struggle against Big Tech today.

Is technology going to be a tool of individual choice or social control?

Facebook and Twitter’s desperate attempts to block a damaging story about Joe and Hunter Biden is the culmination of four years of work to transform social media into the media. Under the guise of false claims about disinformation, foreign election interference, bots, networks, deepfakes, public health risks, and assorted tech paranoia, free speech died on the internet.

The moment when the White House Press Secretary had her account locked for tweeting a damaging news story about Joe Biden brought home the Big Tech reality to most Republicans.

New book warns of danger of Kamala Harris presidency

Max Parry

With the 2020 US presidential election less than a month away, there is widespread speculation concerning Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s mental and physical fitness at 77 years of age if he were to defeat incumbent Donald Trump on November 3rd.

The former Vice President and Senator from Delaware would surpass his opponent as the oldest to ever hold the office of the presidency if victorious, while his generally acknowledged cognitive decline has led many to question whether he is even capable of serving a single term.

Given the concerns about his health, the likelihood that Biden’s running mate, Senator Kamala Harris, would become his successor has put the controversial former prosecutor and California Attorney General’s own politics under scrutiny, though not to a degree sufficient with the odds she could very well become commander-in-chief in the near future.

Trump himself suggested it was the hidden motivation behind House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recent introduction of a 25th Amendment commission on removing a “mentally unfit” president to enable the replacement of an incapacitated Biden with Harris after the election.

Even Saturday Night Live recently joked about Biden’s poor first debate performance as a Harris term in-the-making — but as journalist Caleb Maupin explains in his new book Kamala Harris and the Future of America: An Essay in Three Parts, the prospect of her becoming president is no laughing matter.

Maupin’s ambitious essay surpasses the redundant analysis of the vice-presidential nominee by placing her political success in a broader historical context while forewarning the unique danger of a budding Harris administration waiting in the wings.

“Guillotines, Motherfucker”: Colorado Democratic Committee Member Caught On Hidden Camera Talking Violent Revolution

by Tyler Durden

https://www.zerohedge.com/political/guillotines-motherfcker-colorado-democratic-committee-member-caught-hidden-camera

Prominent Colorado Democrat Khristopher Jacks, who sits on the executive committee for the state’s Democratic party and chairman of leftist organization “Our Revolution” was caught on undercover footage by Project Veritas promoting a violent agenda for far-left Democrats if President Trump wins in November..

Apparently Jeff Bezos is the first guy he’d kill.

Kristopher Jacks: “If you want to do some Versailles shit. If you want to do some Antifa shit. You really want to change this country that way, with violence, there’s only one way to do it. You gotta get people that are close to billionaires and start just, random billionaires start turning up dead. And nobody knows what the f**ks going on. Nobody knows. Nope, I don’t know. They just turned up dead. And just three or four of ‘em is all it’s going to take. All it’s going to take is a pattern of I don’t know, I don’t know man. I don’t know what happened. Just showed up that way. I walked in. That’s how it was. That’s the only way that’s, you do that to three or four people enough to say that this is a pattern, and this is why – draw a dollar sign on their desk or whatever you do, that’s what it’s going to take. It’s going to take a strategic hit against the .1% that’s in charge, cause that’s who it is. Killing random Nazis in the street, random f**king bootlickers.”

Journalist: “But like who are those like three or four billionaires right now that if it went to that?”

Jacks: “Doesn’t matter.”

Journalist: “Doesn’t matter who.”

Jacks: “Doesn’t matter who… I mean Bezos at the top of the list.”

Journalist: “Who?”

Jacks: “Bezos.”

Twitter, Biden and the New York Post – Social Media Censorship Kicks up a Gear

Kitt Knightly

Biden’s corruption in Ukraine has been evident since his son was appointed to the board of the largest energy company in Ukraine within weeks of the US-backed coup in 2014 (a decision so obviously dodgy even the Guardian made a joke out of it). Joe Biden himself has even admitted to applying financial pressure to get a Ukrainian State Prosecutor removed from office.

None of this is really “big news”. Corruption is rampant in the halls of power, that is as certain as death and taxes, and will continue to be so, whether or not these specific allegations are accurate.

The big news, the part of this story that should concern everyone, is that Twitter has completely blocked this material on their platform.

And we’re not talking a “soft block”, we at OffG are more than familiar with twitter’s use of “warnings”, no they literally made it impossible to share the links, even in DMs. If you try, you get his warning:

We can’t complete this request because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful. Visit our Help

<snip>

We now have mega-corporations, who possess neither democratic mandate nor public accountability, controlling what elected officials can and cannot say in public. The political discourse of our society has become subject to the approval of “independent fact-checkers” created by billionaires and staffed by the Deep State.

‘Something went wrong’: Twitter suffers global outage amid ‘censorship’ scandal ahead of Trump and Biden town halls

RT

The unexplained blackout comes just hours before the competing televised town halls featuring US President Donald Trump and his Democrat challenger Joe Biden, which replaced the debate originally scheduled for October 15 but scrapped due to disagreement over a sudden rule change.

Reader comment:

Twitter took down the GOP and Trump twitter feeds…
…Trump and the GOP took down twitter.

I bet a service of process is on the way to inform Dorsey his company use of the national grid has been terminated until the investigation of election meddling is complete.

Matt Dolloff, Shooter in Denver Murder – Who Is He?

By Faye Higbee

The Denver police and news media have been quick to pronounce the shooter in yesterday’s murder as just a “security guard” for a local TV station. They claimed he has “no connection” to Antifa at all. But Matt Dolloff has a tattoo that says otherwise. He is a registered Democrat, supporter of Bernie Sanders. He was hired by 9News from Pinkerton – normally a reputable company. But someone failed miserably in their vetting process, or a cover up may be involved.

“We scheduled our action after learning that the militia-fascists had called a ‘patriot muster’ against the Black Lives Matter movement, anti-fascists and Marxists. That’s us — guilty as charged and happy to oblige with our presence.” Denver Communists spokesperson

Police recovered two guns at the scene, one belonging to Matt Dolloff. The other person arrested, a producer from the 9News media, was found not to be involved in the incident and released. Police say they have surveillance video of the shooting.

‘I Am White, Therefore a Racist’ Declares Liberal Professor, in Latest Proof U.S. Academics Are Fueling Racial Tensions

Robert Bridge

“As a White American, I am by definition racist,” Bucholtz says at the opening of her talk, as reported by Campus Reform. “Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. I know there is this sort of rhetoric of White people in the United States rejecting the label of racism but I think we need to acknowledge that, and do better.”

In keeping with the infectious spirit of the times, the professor went on to characterize ‘white supremacy’ in the United States as a “pandemic or… a disease,” yet minutes later in the discussion she contradicted herself, saying “white supremacy is not a disease, it is a choice … a system that White people have built in order to oppress everyone else.”

As par for course when discussing the scourge of “systemic racism” that is allegedly strangling the life out of America, little by way of evidence is required to support the claim. When Bucholtz speaks of white supremacy in the United States as a “pandemic,” she says that she is “not speaking metaphorically,” yet where exactly is the proof? Bucholtz points to “life and death issues, like Covid-19 and the appalling and ongoing acts of police violence and murder” to support this very serious assertion.

Thought Control American Style: The Social Justice Warriors Will Destroy Our Basic Freedoms

Philip Giraldi

Once upon a time it was possible to rely on much of the mainstream media to report on developments more or less objectively, relegating opinion pieces to the editorial page. But that was a long time ago. I remember moving to Washington back in 1976 after many years of New York Times and International Herald Tribune readership, when both those papers still possessed editorial integrity. My first experience of the Washington Post had my head spinning, wondering how front-page stories that allegedly reported the “news” could sink to the level of including editorialized comments from start to finish to place the story in context.

Today, Washington Post style reporting has become the norm and the New York Times, if anything, might possibly be the worst exponent of news that is actually largely unsubstantiated or at best “anonymous” opinion. In the past few weeks, stories about the often-violent social unrest that continues in numerous states have virtually disappeared from sight because the mainstream media has its version of reality, that the demonstrations are legitimate protest that seek to correct “systemic racism.” Likewise, counter-demonstrators are reflexively described as “white supremacists” so they can be dismissed as unreformable racists. Videos of rampaging mobs looting, burning and destroying while also beating and even killed innocent citizens who are trying to protect themselves and their property are not shown or written about to any real extent because such actions are being carried out by the groups that the mainstream media and its political enablers favor.
