over ‘Misinformation’ Fine

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 10/10/2022 1:16:34 PM

PayPal stock tumbled Monday after reports circulated that the company’s updated acceptable use policy would fine users $2500 for spreading “misinformation.” Shares of the online payments system operator were trading 5.74 percent lower at $84.99 as of noon on Monday. On Sunday, it was reported that PayPal changed the language of the restricted activity section on its AUP to include a clause threatening to impose a $2500 penalty “debited directly from your PayPal account” for an expanded list of prohibited activities. The new conditions were supposed to launch effective November 3, the Daily Wire first reported. Changes included a ban on “the sending, posting, or publication of any messages, content, or materials”

You know what I’m reading online? More people are still planning on cancelling their accounts, they just haven’t done it yet. PayPal is no longer trusted. Doesn’t matter what they say now, they’ve revealed themselves as untrustworthy.

They've admitted who they are, regardless if they backtrack. Use local banks, use independent everything. When possible don't host your website with Google (looking tat Lucianne here). Etc. It's like getting natural gas from Putin. Don't become dependent on enemies.

I closed PP several years ago when they ripped me off and wouldn't correct it. All my transactions are completed by charging my VISA account directly. And when I have questions or disputes VISA is always prompt and helpful.

What legal right do they have to simply "fine" one of their clients and effectively steal $2,500 from them for something that has absolutely nothing to do with the service being rendered? These idiots need to be sued for stupidity.

I was planning to quit paypal today but got an email for donating to a charity on their list lately. It was a pet shelter. I was able to set my charity to the Texas State Rifle Association Foundation, so I did that. I am curious how long it is before they figure out what that is. I know they are extremely against citizens being able to protect themselves.

I cancelled PayPal yesterday, today am cancelling Venmo. Granted, I only had two recurring charges on PP, and only used Venmo for my personal trainer 1/week. But it's a moral victory. And if thousands and millions of people like me, infrequent users, cancel, it does send a message. Get Woke, Go Broke. They just can't help themselves!

Report: Biden Tried to Persuade Saudis
to Delay Production Cut

A report in today’s Wall Street Journal depicts Joe Biden’s Keystone Kops administration in action: Days before a major oil-production cut by OPEC and its Russia-led allies, U.S. officials called their counterparts in Saudi Arabia and other big Gulf producers with an urgent appeal—delay the decision for another month, according to people familiar with the talks. The answer: a resounding no. *** Saudi officials dismissed the requests, which they viewed as a political gambit by the Biden administration to avoid bad news ahead of the U.S. midterm elections, on which control of Congress hangs.

Last week, Saudi Arabia announced, in conjunction with OPEC+, that it would be cutting oil production in the face of dropping prices. That decision came in spite of the Biden White House’s lobbying in favor of increased production, which included a sycophantic visit by President Joe Biden to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. In response to the Saudi announcement, the White House quickly announced that the United States would be reevaluating its relationship with the Kingdom. Meanwhile, the White House announced that it would be “preparing to scale down sanctions” on Venezuela’s tyrannical regime, according to The Wall Street Journal. The goal: increased oil production from the Marxist dictatorship

More millennials are attending church now than before the Chinese coronavirus pandemic struck, a report from Christianity Today’s October issue found. Churches all across the country famously closed down during much of the pandemic, creating tension in some communities that wanted to continue to meet regardless of local or state rules. But by now most Americans recognize that the pandemic is over. Even President Joe Biden made that admission last month.  There has been an uptick of Americans returning to normal activities, showing the fundamental desire of Americans to return to a state of pre-pandemic normalcy.

The most recent remarks came in a wide-ranging interview with CNN host Jake Tapper, which aired Tuesday and covered both domestic and international issues. Asked by Tapper whether he thought Putin would actually use nuclear weapons, Biden said, “I don’t think he will.

Wall Street boss Jamie Dimon took a veiled swipe at President Biden’s energy policy following OPEC’s decision to cut the global oil supply by some 2% last week. “Obviously, America needs to play a real leadership role — America is the swing producer, not Saudi Arabia,” the JPMorgan Chase CEO told CNBC on Monday. Dimon said the Biden administration dropped the ball by not significantly boosting output at the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which has roiled energy markets. “We should have gotten that right starting in March,” according to Dimon. “In my view, America should have been pumping more oil and gas and it should have been supported.”

The U.S. international outlook has changed dramatically with Joe Biden in the White House, a poll shows, with a majority now expecting U.S. dealings with traditional foes like Russia, Iran, China, and North Korea to only grow more hostile. The change is in direct contrast to public sentiment in the President Donald Trump era at roughly the same point in the two administrations. Now, 60 percent of U.S. adults say relations with adversaries will get worse, up from 26 percent four years ago, according to the poll from the Pearson Institute and The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

The very short answer, as revealed in this story published yesterday by the NY Times, is politics. The attempt to build the first bullet train in the US between San Francisco and Los Angeles almost immediately turned into a boondoggle thanks to decisions that made no sense in terms of efficiency or ridership but only in terms of satisfying powerful politicians. The design for the nation’s most ambitious infrastructure project was never based on the easiest or most direct route. Instead, the train’s path out of Los Angeles was diverted across a second mountain range to the rapidly growing suburbs of the Mojave Desert

Sean Casten (D-Ill.) and his wife said in a statement that Gwen Casten died in June of a sudden cardiac arrhythmia. “In layman’s terms, she was fine, and then her heart stopped,” the grieving parents said. “We don’t know what caused the arrhythmia, and likely never will.” According to the National Liberty of medicine, arrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat. It can refer to a heart that is beating too quickly, too slowly, or with an otherwise irregular pattern.

One problem is tepid enthusiasm among a key segment of the Democratic base: Black men. One-third of Black men registered in Georgia haven’t voted in the past several elections, with pollsters

PayPal on Oct. 8 sent out an update to its terms of use, or acceptable use policy (AUP). It included a shocking addition. It reserved the right to confiscate $2,500 from people’s accounts if they spread “misinformation.” It was a clear announcement of what many already suspected: PayPal has enlisted in the information war. This comes weeks after PayPal blocked several important accounts in the UK, including Toby Young’s personal account, the Free Speech Union, and the DailySceptic. These are hugely important venues for the English-speaking world in countering the COVID propaganda narrative. It was no accident that they were targeted. After global protests and news coverage from alternative sources, PayPal relented

In the heated debate between Ryan and his Republican opponent for Ohio’s open U.S. Senate seat, Ryan was confronted and asked to explain his comments earlier in the year when he told MSNBC’s Morning Joe that the “exhausted majority” needed to “kill and confront” the extremist Republican movement. Now, Ryan, during the debate — doubling down on his comments — included Vance in the group of people he labels as “extremists.”
