Election Interference: Twitter Just
Censored a Doctor, Public Health
Expert, and GOP Chairwoman

Twitter informed me that my account was suspended for sharing content they disagree with, and while I suppose I should be flattered by joining such august company as Donald Trump Jr., this issue is bigger than me: it is a question of censorship. The reason I was given by Twitter for why my account was suspended was because, according to them, I spread “false information” about COVID-19, or rather, information that goes against “accepted science.” Is it possible that the geniuses at Twitter are referencing the medical journal Lancet, which published a study claiming hydroxychloroquine was not effective in fighting the coronavirus

FTA: 'The truth is, once it was mentioned by President Trump as a promising option, the entire discussion became politicized by the media.' Hear lies the answer. Twitter, the media, democrats, Google, etc..none of them give a darn about 'truth'. To them, the truth is whatever they say it is, and anyone who dares to think for themselves are heretics. You could cite a hundred experts to support your position, but if it goes against their political orthodoxy, you'll get banned. Personally, I left Twitter 3 years ago and I don't miss it one iota. The only reason these Big Techs and medias continue to harass us and flip the bird at free speech, is because we allow it. Everyone complains, but everyday they still log on and support their sponsors. Until that changes, Dorsey and his cabal will continue their reign of terror.

Putting this in perspective, suppose the phone company decided who could and could not call you based on who THEY approved of? While in the case of telemarketers this might be welcome, we would be appalled if they were to do this. Who are THEY to decide who we can talk to? WE might choose to block someone's number but the phone company should not initiate it. Or local government decided that a dem group could get a permit to hold a rally but NOT a Republican group. It would raise fury. WE can choose which rally to attend, maybe both. THAT is what twitter, Google, Facebook, and others are doing. They do it with mysterious "algorithms" that they claim are "unbiased"; just like the media is unbiased. This is garbage. These companies are staffed with Left Coast developers who know exactly the game they are playing when they write "algorithms" that are as Leftist as their creators. WE might choose to activate some levels of filtering but the company should not. Consider how we might feel if a car company had a fault that occasionally inflicted damage to a person. Would we care if that damage was unintentional or just that there was damage? Further, we would demand a recall to fix that fault and there would be severe financial (and brand image) consequences if the problem was not addressed. The tech companies should be no different. This will stop when the $$COST$$ of continuing to do it, through force of LAW, becomes so high that they are being crippled by it. If their algorithm blocks the wrong person they get a $10 million dollar fine whether it is deliberate or not. No "Oops" excuses. Possibly an exception for threatening or similar actions. Every time it happens the fine quadruples and remains at the new level until they have been incident free for three years. $10 million, $40 million, $160 million, $640 million, $2.56 BILLION ... . I will bet the programmers get a LOT more smart about creating proper algorithms VERY quickly or they get fired. This should be done as soon as possible and a government monitoring capability put in place with support for it MANDATED by law, i.e. the companies MUST send a list of information censored by their "algorithms" to the government with some sort of explanation why it was done. The "why" doesn't really matter unless it is one of the qualified exceptions.

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State."

Twitter Geeks are not qualified to make judgement on science or medicine. They should just stay in their basements, shut up and write code while sucking on their Twinkies. Their technical geeks should be called Twits.

Had a discussion the other day with a young Lib. She couldn't understand why I was so upset and hostile to Social Media. I tried to explain to her what my problems were, but it was like talking to a rock. She wasn't hostile, you understand. Never got upset or abusive. Just clueless. She could not even grasp what propaganda was or that propaganda is more than simply lying. Propaganda is a lifestyle, where apparent common decency is mixed into misinformation and subtle hate to induce a mindset depriving your opponent as well as your supporters of their choices. My Dad dealt with Civilians in Germany following WWII. They could not comprehend or admit the horrors of the Holocaust. They would stare at him, sometimes mutter, asking themselves why anyone would be concerned about what happened to Jews, then change the subject. Some of these people had possessions stolen from Jews, and even housewares and and objects manufactured from dead Jews - Gold from teeth, skin for lampshades, bone handled cutlery, from human bones... Most of these were confiscated and destroyed, to be buried as the human remains they were, though some made it to the black markets These numbskulls don't understand they are sliding on the slippery slope. Hell's Mouth gapes wide.

We the people can only do so much about the rampant censorship on social media. But the Feds have plenty of options to deal with this if they thought it was in their interest to do so. It is not in their interest yet to do so. But boy will they jump into action fast when it is made clear to them that it would be in their interests to do their job.

U.S. Attorney John Durham will soon interview former CIA Director John Brennan, another sign that the investigation of the Trump-Russia investigators is ready to wrap up by the end of the summer. Durham, the federal prosecutor from Connecticut appointed by Attorney General William Barr to investigate the origins of the Crossfire Hurricane inquiry and to scrutinize the conduct of the law enforcement leaders and intelligence officials involved in it, has asked to interview Brennan, according to “people familiar with the request” cited by NBC News, and the former top spy and vociferous Trump critic has reportedly agreed to the sit-down.

Vanity Fair, that peerless assessor of all things political, has bravely come out with the shocking opinion that the movies, TV, and our much-vaunted national media-industrial complex don’t hate right-wing women as much as they ought to, leading to the unjust and the always unhappy conclusion that people such as Phyllis Schlafly in Mrs. America, Megan Kelly in Bombshell, and Margaret Thatcher in the film Iron Lady are portrayed in some venues as real human beings, and not as the monsters they are: We pull our punches when it comes to the tales of handmaids of conservative politics.

Pangong Lake is the most unlikely of places for a naval conflict between two of the world’s nuclear powers, India and China, with a third, Pakistan, looking on with not a little interest. Lying some 280 miles east of Islamabad, 360 miles north of New Delhi and 2,170 miles west of Beijing, Pangong Lake is in the remote northern Himalayas. In 1905, the explorer Ellsworth Huntington said that its beauty could ‘rival, or even excel, the most famous lakes of Italy or Switzerland’.

It’s not enough that public school teachers and the college professors who train them are increasingly prone to teaching leftist absurdities like “2+2=5” or presenting the mendacious 1619 Project as legitimate American history. Teachers unions are now trying to blackmail the entire country into meeting a set of leftist political demands for reopening the schools this fall, using COVID-19 as their excuse. Of course, the pandemic certainly presents challenges for re-opening schools, but other sectors of society have managed to rise to the occasion over the past several months to keep the country running.
Who Killed George Floyd? 16 replies

In the death of George Floyd, the State of Minnesota has charged former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin with second-degree murder and former officers Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng, and Tou Thao with aiding and abetting that murder. But, as will be shown in detail below, the physical, scientific, and electronically recorded evidence in the case overwhelmingly and conclusively proves that these defendants are not guilty of the charges and, in fact, played no material role in bringing about Floyd’s death. Instead, the evidence proves that, when he first encountered the police, George Floyd was well on his way to dying from a self-administered drug overdose.

Kneeling for the national anthem at sporting events used to be the occasional episode of player activism protesting the United States as an evil racist empire. Amid the new 21st century woke revolution however, kneeling has become a key signifier for players and teams to declare which side of the culture wars one sits on. It’s those who love America versus those who hate it, the latter of which despises the American flag and all that it represents as a relic of white supremacy that must be condemned.

Extending the popular Payroll Protection Program is one of the few areas of agreement between the White House and Democrats in the latest proposed coronavirus stimulus — a spending bill criticized by many in the Republican base as a wasteful bailout for cities and states. Administration and banking industry sources say Senate Republicans‘ proposal to extend the PPP, which is set to expire this week, for companies with fewer than 300 employees and a reduction of 50% or more in revenue is accepted in principle in the talks. But the provision, which also offers more generous terms for loan forgiveness,

When mobs are attacking statues of Ulysses S. Grant, it is difficult to have an intelligent discussion about why some Confederate generals and officials deserve respect. No one today defends the role of slavery. However, if belief in racial equality is the sole measure of the worth of Americans at the time, few people, including in the North, would pass muster. Racism was rampant, and many northerners objected to slavery not on grounds of humanity and liberty, but because it created sectional division and, in their view, harmed white laborers. Most northern states denied free blacks the right to vote and serve on juries, and imposed other disabilities,

Would Vice President Biden’s search for a running mate have been so fraught if he hadn’t announced his plan to exclude male candidates from consideration? The thought occurs to us in the wake of the Washington Post’s story about Mr. Biden’s decision to delay by as much as two weeks the announcement of his choice and the ill-feeling among Democrats as jockeying for the position has intensified among the potential picks. “Even some longtime Biden allies worry that the process has become ‘messier than it should be,’ pitting women, especially Black women, against one another,” reports the Post’s Annie Linsky.

The Democrats are obviously committed to using the COVID-19 pandemic as the latest pretext for achieving their longtime goal of widespread voting by mail. They may, however, end up outsmarting themselves. The Democrats are so invested in their revisionist history concerning Bush v. Gore that they have forgotten why SCOTUS actually stopped the Florida recounts on December 12, 2000. That was the “safe harbor” date after which the state’s electors may not have been counted. Federal law requires that states must resolve post-election disputes (e.g. recounts) within thirty-five days after Election Day or risk disfranchising their voters. In 2000, that would have changed the outcome of the presidential election.

Dem strategist Zac Petkanas argues: “This is not a normal presidential election, and Trump is not a legitimate candidate” and so doesn’t deserve a debate.

Thousands of New York City residents fled Manhattan and Brooklyn earlier this year when the city was the COVID-19 epicenter of the world. Many flocked to their second homes in the Hamptons or upstate, while others rented or bought new properties, abandoning their expensive city apartments.Now, six months on with no end to the national nightmare in sight, many are laying down permanent roots.

This year, 14 have already been reported. The figures are causing alarm in the ritzy neighborhood, where residents boast an average annual income of $322,400.

Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, signed an executive directive on Wednesday ordering state employees to undergo “implicit bias training.” Executive directives allow the Michigan governor to establish procedures or basic policy for employees of the state’s executive branch. According to the directive, current state employees will be required to undergo “implicit bias training” by the end of this year, while new employees must complete the training as part of the hiring process. While various bias training initiatives have been implemented by government offices in recent months, some research shows that the impact of these initiatives is negligible. Whitmer’s directive
