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 twist to the tawdry tale of censorship and discrimination has emerged this week, as Facebook is once again in the hot seat over their business model’s amoral practices.

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.

Biden Invokes ‘Santa Claus’ in Bizarre Supply Chain Commentary

This, while taking no responsibility whatsoever for the ever-worsening consumer crisis facing Americans.

Published

It’s no secret that President Joe Biden has a way with words.  What is surprising is just which way he often chooses to go with his words.

This week was no different, as the Commander in Chief continues to struggle with criticisms of his handling of the ongoing supply chain crisis that threatens to leave the underside of many an American Christmas tree bare.

President Joe Biden tried to distance himself from supply chain disruptions this Christmas, telling Americans on Wednesday he was not responsible for any problems.

He then decided to bring Santa Claus into it for some reason.

“I can’t promise that every person will get every gift they want on time,” Biden said. “Only Santa Claus can keep that promise.”

Biden argued that shortages for some goods around Christmas were normal, citing the Cabbage Patch Kids doll shortage in the 1980s and also the shortage of Beanie Babies in past years.

But then the President simply downplayed the issues entirely, attempting to neutralize his critics.

“Here’s the deal. For the vast majority of the country, that’s not happening,” Biden said.

Then, in a statement that will surely make some CNBC pundits’ heads spin, the President suggested that the current rate of inflation was “natural”, and a byproduct of the global economic downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
