Facebook Promises More Active Censorship Ahead of Midterms

This is PRECISELY what the First Amendment is supposed to protect us from, and if Congress won’t act, it will be up to We The People to preserve our rights.

Now that Facebook has committed their massive, 800-entity purge of political voices with no legal recourse, the social media platform is undoubtedly feeling emboldened.

Weeks ago, Facebook sharpened their axe.  They decided, along with Twitter and Google congruently, that We The People shall not be allowed to promote our political discussions on their platforms. Instead, only those outlets chosen by the Silicon Valley Overlords would be allowed to promote discourse and conversation online, thereby negating any possibility of refuting the mainstream narrative.  This purge was committed on both sides of the political spectrum, in a bipartisan culling of the American people’s influence on their own elected officials.

In short:  This was barnyard excrement of the highest order, and Facebook is simply succumbing to the same financial pressures that corrupted the 24 “news” channels.

So that leaves the American people with a partial blindfold heading into the midterm elections, with our votes only being swayed by the narrative assembled and weaponized by Facebook, Google, CNN, MSNBC, Twitter, Fox News, and other “approved” sources.

It’s exactly the sort of thing that that First Amendment is supposed to protect.

Now, knowing that no one is going to stop their informational tyranny, Facebook has even promised to escalate their narrative-building efforts in the final week before We The People head to the polls.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated recently that the upcoming U.S. midterm elections will be “a real test” of the company’s ability to crack down on “hate speech” and misinformation.

The Hollywood Reporter stated in a recent article that Facebook will make its biggest increase in money spent to combat “hate speech” and misinformation on its platform this year, according to CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Zuckerberg stated that despite Facebook’s increased expenditure, the company still won’t be as “dialed in as well as everyone would like us to be,” in relation to security and influence campaigns on the platform.

Zuckerberg stated that the upcoming midterm elections will be “a real test” of the newly implemented safeguards designed to protect the platform from “bad actors,” following reports of numerous foreign influence campaigns on the social media website. Zuckerberg said that during the upcoming election, the platform will see “all the good and bad that humanity can do,” but that the social media platform is getting better at hiding the “bad stuff” from users.

The spirit of the First Amendment strictly forbids this sort of discrimination of opinions, yet our government allows it to occur.

Why?  Well it could be due to the fact that Facebook and Congress are both succumbing to industry lobbyists and political powerhouses, fueled by major market advertisers.  These advertisers are the same ones who completely castrated cable news networks by holding them hostage for commercial airtime, and who have consistently used divisive and combative language to promote conflict.

Conflict, of course, is the prime catalyst of viewership, which, in turn, creates revenue.  To make money, Facebook has to play by these rules the same way that CNN does.  Hence, Facebook and CNN will both continually and inevitably bend the knee to the corporate monarchy in order to continue their gainful growth.

It’s not right, and if our public servants in Washington won’t do anything about it, We The People may need to find a way to motivate them into action.

Bill O’Reilly Brilliantly Explains Why 2020 Election Doesn’t Make Much Sense (Video)

You probably won’t find a better summarization.

Bill O’Reilly may not be a perfect person. But that is to be expected, considering he’s human. That being said, the man is very intelligent and well-informed (and his Killing series is just plain awesome). On Monday, Bill explained why the 2020 presidential election seems so funky to so many millions of Americans. Did you know, as O’Reilly points out, that no president in 150 years has lost a second term when they nabbed more votes than they did the first time around? Trump earned over 10 million more votes in 2020 than he did in 2016, but somehow he’s the one who can’t keep up with the trend – despite the massive rallies, both scheduled and impromptu, all over the nation?? WATCH: https://twitter.com/TheFirstonTV/status/1333599197140946947?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1333599197140946947%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-bill-oreilly-explains-why-this-election-just-doesnt-make-sense%2F There was absolutely fraud during the 2020 election. There’s zero chance Joe Biden outperformed President Trump to the tune of 80 million total votes. Come on, man! The GOP needs to get to the bottom of this or risk going extinct.

GOP Senator Says Biden’s Pick for OMB, Neera Tanden, Has ‘Zero Chance of Being Confirmed’

Buh bye.

It is absolutely imperative that Republicans retain control of the Senate. Both upper chamber races in Georgia have the ability to make or break the country. Loeffler and Perdue must win. If they don’t, Democrats will have the House, Senate, and, possibly, the Executive Branch. If that happens, things will change fast – and not in a good way. From The Daily Wire: On Monday, former Vice President Joe Biden announced he had selected Neera Tanden, the president of The Center for American Progress and a close friend of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as his choice to head the White House Office of Management and Budget, eliciting criticism from both sides of the political aisle. Sen. John Cornyn, (R-TX) said Tanden “stands zero chance of being confirmed.” […] Tandem has also come under fire for her handling of sexual harassment claims at the Center for American Progress. Buzzfeed News reported in 2018 that two days after they had revealed allegations of sexual harassment and retaliation at the Center for American Progress, where Tanden served as president, Tanden “met with staff to restore confidence in the organization’s ability to handle the issue and ensure that employees feel safe. But during the meeting Wednesday afternoon, Tanden named the anonymous victim at the center that story — a revelation that a CAP spokesperson said was unintentional — and what began as a tense meeting became what three staffers in the room described as a textbook example of the organization’s failures to appropriately handle sexual harassment cases.” Check out some of these tweets… https://twitter.com/GarrettVentry/status/1333250823531470855?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1333250823531470855%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fso-much-for-unity-tom-cotton-rips-bidens-picks-to-staff-administration https://twitter.com/neeratanden/status/802605607081615360?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E802605607081615360%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fso-much-for-unity-tom-cotton-rips-bidens-picks-to-staff-administration https://twitter.com/neeratanden/status/959471674528878593?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E959471674528878593%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fso-much-for-unity-tom-cotton-rips-bidens-picks-to-staff-administration
