In 2019, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg stood at Georgetown University and pledged to “fight to uphold as wide a definition of freedom of expression as possible,” promising in uncertainty to “err on the side of greater expression.” He went on, “I don’t think most people want to live in a world where you can only post things that tech companies judge to be 100 percent true.” Such declarations seem almost quaint now, if not outright lies.

I have never ever used FascistBook - - or even logged onto it - - and you know what? I'm pretty darn well informed without it. These leftist "social media" sites are the most over-rated and under-delivering vehicles since the Edsel. Who needs FascistBook - - and why is any intelligent person patronizing it?

Oh, how many times I have told folks to get off of Facebook!! They don't listen. They desperately need Facebook to share photos. If you stay on Facebook, you enable them. Facebook is abusive. But I guess people enjoy the abuse.

Are you serious, Rachel? Really serious? Zuck will go as far as he is allowed to go and you should know that by now. And, NO ONE has ever been truly serious about drawing that proverbial line in the sand. It isn't merely censorship in the USA. FB has been corrupted too far beyond any hope of fixing it piecemeal. Short of some sort of massive calamity to FB's network infrastructure that would end up financially hurting millions of innocent users, I have no clue how to change anything FB is doing. All the usual bad actors out there are using FB too successfully for their own purposes to take it down.

FB doesn't have anything to worry about... As long as there are no penalties, why should they change. The Republicans had their chance to fix this but their hatred for Trump kept many of them from doing anything about big tech... and the money's better.

I have this facebook thing whipped. I use it only for day to day comms with friends and family. Never anything political and the last couple years no pictures of guns. Knowing full well that they sell the communists in government full access, I want to make them yawn when they see mine. For political stuff I look at Mewe and Gab. Much more anonymous, though you wont find many under their real names there.

Who knows..? At least up until the time Suckerberg is prosecuted and fined large enough to put his *** into the street with a tin cup. Like G Soros, he is at present too valuable to unnamed government agencies as a source of information; a tool of the evil left.

I was pretty active w fazbuk, Started, hosted, and moderated several debate sites, was founder/admin for several "Specialized" sites pertaining to sailing, navigation, wooden boats, bird dogs, antiques, fine carpentry. Had two business pages, plus a highschool reunion/alumni page. Combined, over 25,000 members/followers. ALL of those pages were deleted and my entire social media presence blocked/banned/removed when I made a meme that went viral. It was right after the Kenosha Kerfuffle first happened, two simple screen caps from the first a still of Huber bashing KR with the skateboard labeled "Cause", the other of Huber clutching his chest labeled "Effect". "Violating Community Standards"... well, now that it has been tried and adjudicated as actually BEING the community standard? Can/will they restore my pages/presence? and that of the hundreds/thousands of other people/sites/groups blocked/banned for the same sort of things? Will anyone DEMAND that fazebuk reveal exactly How Many folks were wrongly effected?

I notice that anyone that posts anything that even mentions the word “vaccination” gets a pop up points them to a FB post for ‘fact checking’. I never click on it but you can be sure that it tells you that the vaccine is wonderful and safe and everybody from babies to ancient coots like me should get the double shots plus booster...or two boosters...or three or......

Across the nation, school districts and politicians are embroiled in a debate over "Critical Race Theory" (snip) The Civil Rights Movement was successful because it emphasized our commonalities as Americans: our common hopes, dreams, struggles, and destiny being tied together. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. rejected standing apart as a solution, often saying, "We cannot walk alone." This is what many CRT proponents get wrong and what parents across the country are rejecting. We cannot teach our children to see themselves as defined and destined by race, that a trait is White or Black, that the American dream is only available for some.

Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old found not guilty on all counts for killing two men and injuring another at a riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, believes we need criminal justice reform. (snip) He's right. As a Black man who spent two and a half years in federal prison, I have personally experienced the injustice in our criminal justice system. But as the political divide over Kyle Rittenhouse demonstrates, we seem less intent on effectively addressing our problems and more concerned with creating narratives that reinforce our preconceived views.

Soon after Special Counsel John Durham indicted Igor Danchenko, the “Primary Sub-Source” of the Steele dossier, on five counts of lying to the FBI, the press paused to feign a moment of public introspection. The corrupt media’s attempt to frame their failings as mere confirmation bias, however, holds no truer than the Russia-collusion hoax they peddled for five years. The proof of this reality is seen in the prostitute sex tapes: the non-existent “golden showers” one and the verifiable, but ignored, Hunter Biden videos.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) on Thursday indicted two Iranian nationals for allegedly interfering in the 2020 U.S. presidential election, alleging they used wide-ranging cyber and disinformation efforts in an attempt to sow doubt in the election process. Between August and November of last year, Iranian nationals Seyyed Mohammad Hosein Musa Kazemi and Sajjad Kashian are alleged to have targeted election websites of 11 states, successfully obtaining information on more than 100,000 U.S. voters by compromising one state’s voter information website.

CDC Admits Crushing Rights of Naturally

You would assume that if the CDC was going to crush the civil and individual rights of those with natural immunity by having them expelled from school, fired from their jobs, separated from the military, and worse, the CDC would have proof of at least one instance of an unvaccinated, naturally immune individual transmitting the COVID-19 virus to another individual. If you thought this, you would be wrong. My firm, on behalf of ICAN, asked the CDC for precisely this proof (see below). ICAN wanted to see proof of any instance in which someone who previously had COVID-19 became reinfected with and transmitted the virus to someone else.

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf admitted this week he made a mistake when he allowed his wife to drop off his mail-in ballot ahead of Tuesday’s municipal elections. The comments came during an interview with KDKA radio in Pittsburgh. A Wolf spokesperson told The Associated Press “it was an honest mistake.” State law requires voters return their own mail-in ballots to a county election office or drop box. Written permission must be given to return someone else’s ballot.

I woke up Wednesday morning so grateful that my state, Virginia, had voted out abortion extremism. Abortion activists were supposed to sweep Terry McAuliffe back to the governor's mansion. McAuliffe spent millions of dollars on ads blasting Glenn Youngkin for being pro-life and brought in outside speakers, including former President Obama, to campaign on the issue of abortion. Instead of keeping Virginia blue, these efforts may have propelled Youngkin to victory.

You might imagine that, but it won’t happen. Democrats have no capacity for such engagement with reality. Thus, they tell us that Glenn Youngkin’s victory was a triumph of white supremacy.
The Obsolete Science Behind Roe v. Wade 9 replies
Posted by Beardo 10/29/2021 5:35:05 PM Post Reply
The Supreme Court will soon reconsider the decision in Roe v. Wade (1973), which made abortion legal in America through all nine months of pregnancy. At that “point in the development of man’s knowledge,” as Justice Harry Blackmun put it in Roe, there was simply no consensus about when life begins. In other words, the fetus could not be said with any certainty to be alive and therefore wasn’t worthy of legal protection. As a diagnostic radiologist—whose youngest patients are fetuses, who are very much alive—I submitted a friend-of-the-court brief in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization urging the justices to rethink Roe, a case premised on a claim about science.

Biden spoke with Pope Francis for roughly 90 minutes in Vatican City. The Vatican abruptly cancelled its planned live-stream Thursday, and the event was closed to the press in a move that sparked some outcry from reporters covering Biden’s second foreign trip since taking office.

The US will not restrict travel from South Africa, where a new 'super mutant' variant of COVID-19 is panicking scientists, until officials can study the variant more, Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Friday despite the UK and some European countries banning travel. The World Health Organization is currently meeting to discuss the variant, which is expected to be named Nu, today. It remains unclear exactly how deadly it is among unvaccinated people, and American health agencies are yet to make any form of warning about it but there are fears it is more transmissible than any other variant yet and that it may also render some vaccines ineffective.

President Joe Biden tweeted Wednesday that supermarket shelves are well stocked across the country while grocers ration food. “For all those concerns a few weeks ago that there would not be ample food available for Thanksgiving, families can rest easy today,” Biden claimed. “Grocery stores are well-stocked with turkey and everything else you need,” the president added. Meanwhile, Publix Supermarkets, a Florida-based grocer, warned customers this week to expect food shortages in all 1,280 stores across the southeast. According to the Orlando Sentinel, the list of rationed foods include the following: Canned cranberry sauce Jarred gravy Canned pie filling Canola and vegetable oil Cream cheese Bacon Rolled breakfast sausage Paper napkins Disposable plates, cups and cutlery Bath tissue Refrigerated snacks (Lunchables-type items) Sports drinks Aseptic-type juices

Millions of citizens long ago concluded that professional sports, academia, and entertainment were no longer disinterested institutions, but far Left and deliberately hostile to Middle America. Yet American conservatives still adamantly supported the nation’s traditional investigatory, intelligence, and military agencies—especially when they came under budgetary or cultural attacks. Not so much anymore. For the first time in memory, conservatives now connect the FBI hierarchy with bureaucratic bloat, political bias, and even illegality. In the last five years, the FBI was mostly in the news for the checkered careers of James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Robert Mueller, Lisa Page, and Peter Strzok.
