Social Media “Proactively” Deletes Photos and Videos

Can anyone recall the many times that Twitter banned information or announcements, photos and videos of protests and riots by Antifa and BLM in the dozens of various cities last year, because it must have been hundreds. Or maybe it was zero times. It’s so hard to say. After all, hundreds and zero are so very similar.

Facebook to ban and remove photos and videos from Capitol protest; content labeled as ‘promotion of criminal activity’

Several Big Tech companies censored the president on social media

Facebook announced it would ban and remove photos and videos from the protest at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. The social media platform claims that photos and videos from Wednesday’s events violate Facebook’s policy of “promotion of criminal activity.”

Immediately following the Capitol protest, Facebook and Instagram locked the account of President Donald Trump for 24 hours for “two policy violations.” read more

Trump Gets a Third Term?

by Brent Smith

So this is what spineless Deep State Republicans do with their spare time. They make an insanely inane commercial and post it on Twitter knowing full well that regardless how factually inaccurate it is, the Twitter “fact-checkers” will never pull it down.

Try not to laugh as you read and then watch the commercial. But be mindful that this just demonstrates that it really is Trump and his supporters against the entire Washington establishment, both democrat and Republican – that as they accuse Trump, it is they who are so desperate to retain their power that they’ll make up anything – any lie – to thwart a second term of the man who wishes to drain the swamp in which they reside. read more

Black Voters Flock to Trump

by: Brent Smith

As a rule, I don’t trust or believe polls. It used to be that even skewed polls, that were purposely wrong to sway the electorate early on, would kind of self-correct as election day approached. They did this so they wouldn’t lose all credibility for being horribly wrong at election time.

But as the left has gone completely off the rails in recent years, suffering Trump Derangement Syndrome, their hard left ideology has simply overwhelmed the need for gravitas. Leftist pollsters no longer seem to care about their reputations post-election.

So seeing this, although it gives me hope, I’m not sure I buy it, even from Rasmussen. But if this is anywhere close to being accurate, Trump is a shoe-in. The dems can’t win without their requisite 90+ percent of the “black vote.”

Twitter Says No More Outright Bans

Personally, I’m not buying this. I think Twitter is just banking on Biden winning, and then it’s back to business as usual, or likely much worse.

Twitter announced that it was reversing course on some of the extreme censorship that it imposed this week to stop the dissemination of news reports from The New York Post that were damaging to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. read more

Will Social Media Platforms Get What they Deserve

Or will it be All Show and No Go, as it’s always been?

by: Brent Smith

While I’m heartened to see the Senate appears serious about dragging these arrogant big tech CEO’s before a committee to testify to what the rest of us clearly see as brash, leftist partisanship by Twitter, Facebook, et al, I will continue to ask to what end.

Will something, can something finally be done about it, or are they simply too big and too powerful. Can the federal government finally crack down on these social media corporations and reclassify them as they are – publishers that make editorial decisions on what the public will see, rather than what they claim to be and what the government has categorized them as – free-speech, neutral forums/platforms.

I’m not an advocate for government interference – picking winners and losers, but that’s exactly has happened. These companies have enjoyed government mandated protection from liability for too long. This has to stop. And every year that goes by and nothing is done, these companies take a bit more editorial license until we get what we have now, a literal censorship board that controls what millions of America can and cannot see. These social media magnates have become the sole arbiters of what is fit to print.

The only way to stop this is to strip this government benefit from them. Otherwise, we can all but kiss conservative networking goodbye.

Republicans declare war on Facebook and Twitter censorship of New York Post, announce Senate hearings next week

‘What the hell is going on’

After Facebook and Twitter sparked outrage by censoring several New York Post reports on emails allegedly from Hunter Biden’s laptop, Republican lawmakers want Big Tech CEOs to testify in Congress and explain why the Post’s stories are being suppressed.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) formally requested on Thursday that the CEOs of Twitter and Facebook both appear before the U.S. Senate to testify on their companies’ individual decisions to censor the Post’s reports. The letters, written to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, invite the Big Tech bosses to testify before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism in a hearing called “Digital Platforms and Election Interference.”

Hawley’s letters announce an inquiry into whether Facebook and Twitter violated federal election law by suppressing the distribution of the New York Post story, “Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad.”

“As your company is no doubt aware, corporations are forbidden from contributing anything of value — financial or otherwise — to support the election of candidates for federal office,” each letter states.

 

The letter to Dorsey noted that Twitter “asymmetrically” applied its terms of service against the Post story and suspended the official Donald Trump presidential campaign account for sharing the article. The hearing “will also consider [Twitter’s] decision to double down on that potential violation by, on October 15, 2020, suppressing the Post‘s follow-up story.”

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and committee member Ted Cruz (R-Texas) also announced Thursday that the Senate Judiciary Committee will vote on Tuesday to serve Dorsey a subpoena to testify the following Friday. Cruz characterized Twitter’s actions as “election interference.”

Teacher Gets Fired over Support for Trump

Imagine being fired from your job over a lousy tweet.

Did you tweet your undying love and support for mass killing? Did you tweet your hatred of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Nope – none of the above.

Michigan High school social studies teacher and coach Justin Kucera was on with Glenn Beck to explain his capital and fireable offense. He tweeted his support for President Trump, by simply stating, “I’m done being silent – Trump is our President.” That’s it, but evidently enough for the leftist academia.

But that wasn’t really why, according to Beck. He postulates that Kucera was actually fired for daring to speak up and speak out. And that won’t fly with the shut-um down leftist mob. Beck is correct.

Democrat’s Corona-Madness

Trump Derangement Continues

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Candi DdeBaca, a Denver democrat councilwoman, retweeted this from a Susan Daniels, “For the record, if I do get the coronavirus, I’m attending every MAGA rally I can.”

What a charming, thoughtful and charitable gesture from a leftist wingnut.

And to this, Candi added her own comment: #solidarity Yaaaas!! – with several emojis, included a black power fist. How quaint, and doesn’t at all harken back to the days of the violent and racist Black Panthers of the `60s.

Solidarity with what? Does Candi mean that she stands with and for a person who claims to want to infect all Trump voters? Or maybe it’s just the ones who attend rallies.

But when the honorable Councilwoman received a little pushback, Candi claimed that those of us on the right who took offense to her retweet and comment were mistaken. She claimed last week that she was merely being sarcastic. read more

The Saga of Schiff T. Coyote

This is an instant classic. And if you love the old Bugs Bunny and Road Runner cartoons, you’ll appreciate it even more.

However, due to completely ridiculous, unrealistic and impossible cartoon violence, the following video may not be suitable for some young children, or all snowflake leftists. The hopelessly and perpetually offended crowd may find that viewing this CARTOON is simply too violent and may cause permanent psychological and possibly physiological damage.

You’ve been Warned!

Meadows Shreds Impeachment By Hearsay

by: Brent Smith

It’s easy to sum up the democrat impeachment report, and it takes a lot less than the 300 pages of bloviation they spat out, not to mention the days and days of inane testimony.

Allow me to sum it all up. “Well that’s what we heard!”

Even after all the time and money they’ve wasted on this clown show, not a single witness was able to provide the dems with any first-hand evidence, or any knowledge of any wrong-doing by the president. And need I remind us all – it is our money they are wasting.

And I’m not the only one who shares this feeling. Representative Mark Meadows (R-NC), former Chairman of the Freedom Caucus embarked on a tweet-storm Tuesday, shredding the entire democrat impeachment report in just 6 points. Adding all his tweets together would barely fill a single page.

Trump Jr Hits Back

Good on Donald Trump Jr. for ramping up the spotlight on the shadowy swamp rats. The dems have orchestrated the greatest scandal this nation has ever known. Greater than all other government corruption scandals combined! Everything they’ve accused Trump of doing, they’ve done, times 10. Talk about projection.

from the Washington Examiner:

Don Trump Jr. defiant after naming whistleblower as Eric Ciaramella

Donald Trump Jr. named CIA officer Eric Ciaramella as the whistleblower who filed a complaint about President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The president’s eldest son, 41, sent out a link via Twitter to a Breitbart News story that named Ciaramella as the “alleged” whistleblower. Ciaramella, 33, was named in a RealClearInvestigations report last week. “Because of course he did!!! Alleged ‘Whistleblower’ Eric Ciaramella Worked Closely with Anti-Trump Dossier Hoaxer,” Trump Jr. tweeted. read more
