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.

Here we go…

Everybody should be held accountable for their role, no matter how big or small, for having a hand in this entire impeachment fiasco. Missouri Senator Josh Hawley (R) hopes to see it come to fruition. From Politico: If the Senate decides to consider new impeachment trial witnesses and documents next week, Sen. Josh Hawley plans to try and force votes on everyone from Adam Schiff to Joe Biden. The Missouri Republican is preparing to file subpoena requests for witnesses and documents that Democrats and Republicans alike won’t want to vote on. Hawley’s strategy harmonizes with plans from GOP Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky to force votes to hear from Hunter Biden, the former vice president’s son who was on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

That’s the easy part. What’s crazy is that Democrats are willing to overlook Joe’s malfeasance and corruption because they so loathe Donald Trump – a president who has literally committed no crime while in office. Had Trump actually committed a crime, we would have known about it by now. And yet, Dems keep reaching and reaching for something, anything – always coming up flat. From Daily Wire: New York Times reporter Kenneth Vogel said on the newspaper’s podcast on Wednesday that Ukrainian gas company Burisma got its “rationale” to put then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, on its board because of Joe Biden’s position in the U.S. government and his activities in Ukraine. Allegations surrounding the Joe and Hunter Biden’s in Ukraine and with Burisma have become a sore spot for Joe Biden as…

Noted Trump Critic Says POTUS Defense Team Was ‘Brilliant’ & ‘Sophisticated’ & ‘Effective’

The trifecta…

It is so easy to defeat a liberal argument, especially regarding the impeachment of President Trump, that even noted anti-Trump Democrats are joining in on the fun. In other words, things are not looking up for Schiff and company. Not at all. The Daily Wire has the scoop… Constitutional Law Professor at George Washington University Jonathan Turley, a Trump critic who was widely praised for his non-partisan testimony during House Democrats’ impeachment hearings, praised Trump’s legal team on Saturday over their performance in defending the president. “The House took a lot of hits below the waterline today,” Turley wrote on Twitter. “These were powerful points that gave ample foundation for senators to support acquittal without agreeing with the Dershowitz theory or the suggestion that everything was ‘perfect.’ I liked the low key, fact-based argument.” Turley added, “The White House did a particularly good job explaining its position on refusing discovery and also the unfair process. Moreover, it was a brilliant decision to limit the opening to a few hours. The House subjected the Senate to mind-numbing repetition for 22 hours.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/KamVTV/status/1220461301367037952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220461301367037952&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fimpeachment-witness-trump-critic-trump-trial-defense-brilliant-sophisticated-effective WATCH: https://twitter.com/NewsHour/status/1220056517510156298?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220056517510156298&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fschiff-admits-in-senate-trial-that-impeachment-about-stopping-trump-re-election WATCH: Rep.

And in typical Trump fashion, he spoke the truth and did so with confidence.
