The battle for the fate of the American First Amendment has taken a hard left turn over the course of 2018, with Facebook’s frothing fascism acting as the de facto beating and bleeding heart in operation.

The social media giant has not been shy doling out their political influence during these first two years of the Trump administration, with their immense power being wielded solely for the benefit of the democratic party.

Not only has the world’s preeminent social network openly admitted to curating their now-defunct “trending topics” section to purposefully exclude the independent media, but they have also been accused to making victims of men such as Brian Kolfage – a US military veteran and triple amputee who was branded as “untrustworthy” by the platform, thus cutting Kolfage’s reach as a political pundit.   (This was after Facebook accepted over a quarter of a million dollars in advertising revenue from Kolfage as well).

A new lawsuit filing alleges that Facebook purposefully inflated the time spent watching videos on its platform by 150 percent to 900 percent to mislead advertisers and inflate advertising rates.

A lawsuit reported on by the Wall Street Journal alleges that Facebook was aware of issues on how the site measured views of video ads for more than a year before it disclosed the issue in 2016. A group of advertisers brought a lawsuit against the social media firm in 2016 for failing to disclose the error earlier, accusing Facebook of engaging in unfair business practices by publishing inaccurate metrics that overestimated how long users spent watching ads and ultimately misled advertisers.

Later, the group of advertisers added a claim of fraud, and in a filing on Tuesday they have now alleged that Facebook knew of the advertising metric bug as early as January 2015 and determined the nature of the miscalculation within months, but failed to disclose this information to advertisers for over a year. The latest filing came shortly after the advertiser’s review of 80,000 pages of internal Facebook records.

Facebook’s political malfeasance hasn’t come without a price, however:  The social network’s stocks have plummeted in the wake of these concurrent scandals.

Trump Takes Second Place in 2024 GOP Candidate Polling

Number one may come as a surprise to you.

Published

Former President Donald Trump is undoubtedly still the most influential man in the Republican Party, and will likely remain so for some time yet to come. This is due in no small part to his ultra-loyal and sizable following, who have already proven their willingness to spurn his enemies to prove a point.  Not receiving the Trump seal of approval is going to be a hard hurdle for many elected officials to overcome, and so they tend to stay on his better side. But is Trump still the imminent 2024 presidential candidate for the Republicans?  Maybe not. A straw poll indicates Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) slightly edges out former President Donald Trump in presidential 2024 approval. Centennial Institute surveyed respondents at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver on Saturday in which participants “were asked to select each potential candidate they would approve for president in 2024.” The top five ranked as follows: Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) 74.12 percent Donald Trump 71.43 percent Sen. Ted Cruz (R) 42.86 percent Mike Pompeo 39.35 percent Sen. Tim Scott (R) 35.58 percent Gover DeSantis has been working diligently to raise his national image in recent months, making a splash in the mainstream media for his handling of the coronavirus crisis, and those who would use the pandemic to exert undue authority over the citizens of the Sunshine State.

Biden Land Management Nominee Advocates for Human Population Control

And let’s not overlook her ties to an eco-terrorism plot.

Joe Biden has been busy in his first few months in office.  Not only has the 46th President spent a great deal of time looking to undo as much of his predecessor’s legacy as possible, but he is also working through all of the normal trappings of the transitional process. This includes the nomination and confirmation of a number of officials to oversee various departments within our government. One of the latest to go up for approval seems to have some strange ideas about how best to serve the planet. Tracy Stone-Manning, President Biden’s nominee to lead the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), argued in her graduate thesis that Americans need to engage in population control to protect the environment. Stone-Manning has already come under fire in recent weeks for her connection to a tree spiking incident – an ecoterrorism tactic – in Idaho in the 1980s, where she traded her court testimony for legal immunity. Her theories on keeping the environment safe were controversial, to say the least. But her past links to ecoterrorists aren’t the only controversial material in her background. In her graduate thesis, a copy of which was reviewed by Fox News, Stone-Manning also urged Americans to have no more than two kids in order to protect the environment. “The origin of our abuses is us. If there were fewer of us, we would have less impact,” states the thesis, which was first flagged by the Daily Caller on Thursday. “We must consume less, and more importantly, we must breed fewer consuming humans.” Stone-Manning created a series of eight advertisements for her thesis that focused on the issues of overgrazing, overpopulation, a mining law from the late 1800s and the lumber industry. One ad refers to a human child as an “environmental hazard” and encouraged Americans…
